As for good sized gardens, Adelaide has the smallest new build blocks in the country (and getting smaller). According to The Australian, the current median here is 375sqm, down from over 600sqm in the nineties.
WOW I didnt know that Jim!! Personally I think we are fed a lot of propoganda about how good we have got it in SA. We recently went to Sydney and restaurant prices in Darling Harbour were about the same as Adelaide!!!! Dont get me wrong, I love Adelaide but its definitely not as good as it used to be
