if you look at the facts on paper its true !! Adelaide is more expensive than the uk. groceries, beer , petrol and now house prices. I've been here 6 years now and agree with all the above but still wouldn't think about moving back to the UK !! Quality of life for me and the kids has no price tag on it !!
We live from week to week and enjoy almost everyday !!! ( And i have a 4 bed house, pool and 4x4 !!!!)
