My wife and I, along with our baby girl (18 weeks), are looking to move to Adelaide in July 2012. We have our visas but just need to figure out where to settle!!! It's really confusing and we don't know where to start looking (in terms of areas).
Ideally we would love a house (rent first) close to the coast and maybe about 30 – 45 mins drive to the city. I suppose what we are looking for is somewhere with a bit of a community, but also with things to do, like local shopping, coffee shops, restaurants etc – somewhere safe for our little girl to grow up. It terms of affordability we would be looking at around $400k (could be more depending on exchange rates) – it would be amazing to have a house with a pool 3 - 4 beds in a nice location. I have been looking at areas around Hallet Cove, but really haven’t got much of a clue as yet!
Any ideas of where to consider (or even avoid) would be much appreciated.
