We have friends living in Aberfoyle Park who lived in Hallet Cove for a year before they brought this house. We would like to settle near to them but really it will depend on where we get jobs? So far I am looking at Hallet Cove and inwards really but don't think we will be able to afford some of the properties that are within 10 mins of Adelaide so guessing about 15-20 mins away and hopefully 5-15 mins from beach.
We have some other friends who emigrate in April and another set who are at about the same stage as ourselves.
We move house on Friday into rented accomodation so could really do with our visa coming through now but trying not to be too impatient.
We've been looking at Hallet Cove aswell! Looks really nice and i've read alot of good things about it plus the schools supposed to be really good. We moved into our rented accomodation a few months ago, so we got 1 stressful bit out the way. Lol. Good luck with everything!!
Yes, we have heard that the schools there are good too. How old are your children? We have 2 boys, aged 8 and 10. Which visa are you thinking of applying for? We have used Four Corners Emigration and so far (touch wood) they have been very good.
We have a girl aged 9 and a boy aged 6. We are going on a 175 skills visa as my hubbies a mechanic. Ive had the brochure come from Four Corners (amongst others). We have a consultation with Thinking Australia this weekend. We are looking at doing the application ourselves though as everything is really straight forward for us and after reading these forums, it seems alot of people are doing the same thing and alls going well for them. So think we will take a chance and save ourselves a few grand, which will pay for flights. lol.
we are from mansfield and have been in australia for 8 weeks ( 7 in adelaide) on 136 visas we are new to all this. everything going ok girls in school and happy, husband in work, and we have got a rented house in Aberfoyle Park which is great.
weather is hot hot hot but compared to storms at home HMMMMM which am i going to choose????
met some great people and loving it so far..
good luck to everyone going through the visa process its well worth the wait!!

Hi all - im orginally from Nottingham, well Mansfield to be precise. But currently living in London until we hopefully get our visas and make it to Oz!!
Good to hear from those that have made the moved already, how is everyone finding Adelaide? my only concern is that coming from such a big/busy city as London is Adelaide going to be too quite for us? any advice would be welcome....

From Gedling To Adelaide
My partner and I lived in Gedling before we emigrated in March 2007.
We have been in Australia 1 year now and absolutely love it and I am pleased to report that hoodies, chavs and Vicky Pollards are very few and far between and can only be spotted in certain suburbs!
The process took us 18 months, so like you say you have got a long way to go but in my opinion and as the saying goes 'all good things come to those that wait!'
