I certainly don't think your point of view deserves to be shot down. I agree with all the points you have made and I've lived in both the UK and Adelaide. I know I will miss some of the things that you like about the UK, as will others. Everyone has to decide what they are looking for and should be realistic about where they move to. Remember though that people look for different things at different stages of their lives and that you are still young and may not be a parent yet. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Adelaide.
