I think the main thing to remember is Adelaide is the city and everywhere else around it is suburbs, the bigger the suburb the more amenities it has. After Seaford there are towns.......Aldinga, McClaren vale, Mount Barker etc, these would be the next towns on...I am finding this hard to explain.......someone help me! Does it make sence???

Blackwood, coromandal valley, Belair, Eden hills, Hawthorndene, You will get a really nice house here for 500,000. The primary schools are excellent and Blackwood High has a lot to offer. They do IB there.
You also get the choice of Unley High, which is down from the hills but not far. Well accessed by buses and trains. Being in the hills you get the gully winds at night which help to cool things down. Blackwood is the main shopping area for these suburbs. They are about 20-30 mins from the beach at brighton and the same to town.
Novar Gardens has some nice houses, 10 mins to beach, 15 to town, not too far from the tram and is serviced by buses.
To the North Nailsworth and Prospect are worth a look but the choice of schools isn't as good. They are only about 6 kms out. You could also try Linden Park, Burnside areas, and Parkside/Unley areas . Excellent state schools, both high and primary. 15 mins from town, choice of shopping centres, but less for your money.
The schools in Fulham aren't crash hot. Henley High is OK, they have a specialist soccer school there.

Brighton, Hove, Glenelg, Marino these are all close to both city and beach but may be a bit expensive. Sorry to tell you but there aren't any other big cities in SA, only Adelaide.
