I'm sure they will have the equivalent of our community nurses but dont have any details for you ..Sorry!
good luck with your application
Im doing similar work here in NZ and hoping to be in OZ very soon, basically just waiting on our house being sold here. Im a UK nurse too and been in the community since '99, so when i get to adelaide, and suss things out, I will let you know.
Good luck, I will be watching this post closely for any tips.
RDNS (Royal District Nursing Service) is community based, very different from the UK though, its a not for profit organisation web site is : http://www.rdns.org.au/
Let me know about community Occupational Therapy work too!!
I work in community at moment and love travelling. Don't think i could work in a hospital again!
