The saying goes that "a picture tells a thousand words".
I took some pictures of my local area (Port Noarlunga and Christies Beach) with the intention of sending them to prospective guests (It goes without saying that I rent out properties to migrants and holiday makers) so that they could see what the area has to offer either for a short stay or settlng longer term roots with their new lives in Adelaide.
I am going to load the pictures on the site with a little explanation attached to them showing what's around me, why I live here and the benefits of establishing a new life this side of the world in Adelaide. When it comes to Port Noarlunga and Christies Beach you really do have "everything on your doorstep". That's the reason that so many new migrants have moved to the continually developing suburbs of Hallett Cove, Christies Beach, Port Noarlunga, Seaford etc.
It would be great if other people added to this thread showing what's around in their suburbs: Seaford for example. Some pictures of the northern suburbs would add to the big picture of what Adelaide has to offer so please post away...let's see what your area has to offer new arrivals in their first few weeks and thereafter.
