I lived and worked in Loxton for a year and it's a nice place but very insular. Having said that if you're a six and a half footer and willing to play footy then you'll be a local in no time.:) Loxton High School is pretty good and considered better than Glossop which is near Berri.
As for the distance to Adelaide that just makes it a nice weekend away to go to the 'big smoke'.
Thanks for the info, going to Adelaide for the weekend would be nice, this area sound ok, near the top of my list at the mo
The other areas are murray bridge and Gawler. Murray bridge is in the same police area so wouldnt know which station i was getting if i went for that area.
Funny that i have another thread going for the Murray bridge area and all have pointed me towards the Barossa area. Ive been looing there and Elizabeth and Gawler area, appear decent areas with enough schools and central to several Police areas such as Barossa, Elizabeth , holden Hills or even Western Adelade which is the Port. All look populated areas to keep me busy however ive being made aware that there is a high turnover in Elizabeth so there must be a reason for that!!!
I do like the thought of the country however as stated its not like the country in England so i can imagine i would be on my own in barron lands!!!!
you will be on your own, and you have to think about the family also.
One of, if not the biggest pull to return is due to the partner feeling homesick. This is magnified by feeling solitary.
Shouldnt be on my own in the Elizabeth and surrounding areas wil i, you are right me and the wife have spoken and thats our main concern both her and the kids wanting to come home
By the look on the piks mate your kids will ove it, and the change will not be too much for them, i don't know the missus. It's fair to say that usually one side of the partnership wants to return more than the other, sometimes things happen to make this worse and kind of exagerate the situation.
Beleieve me i understand you want everything all planned out and everything to run smoothly, but i think the location is the hardest bit. It puzzles me how people buy places while still in the uk and have never been here, i know i couldn't do it. I looked at over 200 properties, thats walked over the door looked before i bought this.
You are comming from a big city/ town environment, with everything you need at the locak shop that is open for 24 hours a day.............. things just are not the same here mate, especially when you move out in the sticks.
hey why not look down south..its much prettier down south, u got the lovely beaches too :)..but i suppose it all depends to where you will be exactly working..i work in the city and i dont mind the 40-45 minutes drive each way...
Options are out and Berri Station is one of them, along with the following, Murray Bridge, Ports Piree, Agusta and Lincoln (dont really fancy the ports) Whyalla, Mt Gambia and all the metropolitan areas of Adelaide including Holden Hills Elizabeth and East and West Adelaide, these will probably be the location i choose to work as easy to get to from anywhere however i do like the sound of Berri and Murray bridge.
Im aware of wher Mt Gambia is couldnt be any further away.
Ive got till 10 Jan to make two Choices they state 1 country and 1 metropolitan area or 2 MEt areas.
Its a ponder!!!!!!
