Just a point about the uni ranking, Diane, I'm not sure what study you refer to but Australia is pretty poor generally in top class universities (its model of aligning educational study on Australian soil to migration being the main reason it's attracted so many foreign students in the past, rather than its academic credentials; a point now the focus of much debate).
The Times ranking for 2010 has Adelaide Uni at 73rd place (some might see that as good, depends how you look at it - it's certainly an improvement on most years where it doesn't get in the top 100), and the RWU academic ranking for 2010 doesn't even place it in the top 200 in the world. Over the last five years or so, Adelaide Uni has dipped in and out of the top 100/200 of different rankings but has never been in the top half.
I'd humbly suggest that the only Australian universities that can claim to be anywhere near 'up there with the best' are ANU and Melbourne.
PS for what it's worth I think it's expensive over here!
