Are you going for a reccie or thinking of a place to settle?
hi gill , were looking at some where to settle just starting out on the visa bit si long time off yet , but im looking into all ares at the moment. how far have you got . do you recomend any where else i can look into .
VH is a great place but according to the Lonely Planet guide to Oz, they liken it to Blackpool .....?
Plenty to do, very pretty, a bit touristy - lots of wildlife - Granite Island and you can do the dusk walk and see penguins ... there is whaling station and lots of history there.
As for employment - can't tell you really. We have visited there several times - love the walk out to Granite Island, my girls love getting the shire horse drawn tram over there ...
About 40 mins from us - Onkaparinga Hills.
It is also nicknamed "God's waiting room" by the locals as a lot of people retire there.
It is a lovely place but quite a trek from the action of Adelaide.
Victor is a lovely area usually a bit cooler there usually than in Adelaide, it used to be very seasonal people going there for summer hols but now it is busy all year round as the whales come in to the sheltered coves to give birth in the winter months so can be as busy as summer! There are also lots of retirees, but more young families are moving there, It would depend on what you do for a living there would be work in hospitalilty, retail, hospitals and teaching. We live in Moana it takes about 30 mins from here.
There is a local paper called the Victor Harbor times which comes out weekly with all the local news.http://victorharbor.yourguide.com.au...=2&mast_id=106 might give you a good idea -good luck
Blackpool must have changed a lot since I was there last!!!
thanks every one looks like vh might not be the right place for us .
my oh is an electrician and im a full time mum , where just looking for some where which is not to far away from adelaide and has got good amenities , safe beaches ect, as we have two children one aged 10 and the other aged 1 so need to be some where that can cater well for children.
so will keep on looking , i have heard about hallet cove , but have heard its quite a hilly place , can anyone tell me anything , would be greatfull many thanks to all
There have been lots and lots of threads on here regarding various suburbs - so perhaps have a look at a few old one and see what you think.
It is always quite difficult getting someone's opinion on a suburb because it depends what style/standard of living you are used to in the UK because one perhaps hell, maybe another person paradise, if that makes sense. It may also come down to what you can afford too.
Good luck in the search ....
