      Before deciding on somewhere to live, I'd wait to find out where you might be working. One of the teachers at my kids' school (in the Eastern suburbs) lives in Happy Valley (in the South) - his OH found a job first near there so that's where they settled - and was saying what a pain he finds the commute, especially when there are out of hours things he has to attend.

      As you will see on any of the driving threads, Adelaide roads (and the company of Adelaide drivers) are not the most fun places to spend a large amount of time! Mind you, had to laugh at the local news the other day: "traffic nightmare for commuters on South Road this morning: some drivers were held up for nearly half an hour".....

      Hi

      We live in Flagstaff Hill and love it. Great schools, great shopping centre nearby and close to lovely beaches and still only 40 mins to city. Good Luck

      I have to agree with Diane, I'd wait and see where you're working! We started off in Modbury North, which is a lovely suburb and we were really close to all the local stuff but Lindley was working in Keswick and while the Obahn's great to get you into town from there, anywhere South of the centre's useless. We've just moved to Keswick and while the area we're in now isn't as nice, the change to the commute more than makes up for it!

      Very good areas, we stayed there when we first arrived and have friends there. Good schools both primary and secondary and affordable housing too. Check out the threads on my original post should give you a bit more to think about.

      Not good if your job is in the eastern, north eastern or north western suburbs though!

      Do a search for threads by a member on here called Nick11 regarding teaching here. Best not to limit yourself workwise by limiting your options, I'd have thought.
