Hi, I sympathise entirely. Iíve been here since last Monday and have been battling with the less than helpful Estate Agents. It changed my plan of attack and Iím now approaching landlords direct through the Advertiser (as was pointed out by Libby Ė a good source), http://adelaide.gumtree.com.au/ and http://adelaideexchange.com.au. Having much more success and generally feeling better about things :) (I was a little more than hacked off last week). Also, as Iíve been surfing like a man possessed Iíve also camped out in the State Library on North Terrace where free WIFI is available should you need it. Good luck.

I really hope you find somewhere, it must be awful for you. I can't imagine how you feel.
Kimberley has a rental in Aldinga. It is unfurnished but is available very soon.
PM the following people to see if they have anything that will help, they all have rentals:
Guzzler&Sas - not sure if the person renting is still there now
Roo1 - she has 2 properties I think
Tyke - I think he has 2 or 3
Dale&Jo - I thought they had at least 1
Diane, I think she is Highgate but I may have the details wrong.
I will ask at work tomorrow. I wish there was something I knew to say. All I can see say is that one day you'll laugh your yourself silly about the hideous start to your stay.
If it is any consolation, 3 days after we arrived, we found out that our money had not been transferred to our Aussie account and therefore we had no idea where our money was or when we'd get it. We'd had a day and a half of Aussie bureaucracy and I stood in the middle of the city branch of Commonwelath Bank and told to shove Australia right up their a*se. I advised them that Australia was not 'all that', I'd seen all I wanted to and was not impressed and they could all clear off while I went back to the good ole UK, home, where they knew how to be competent in their jobs and professional! Surprisingly they let me keep an account!
once again libby thanx billy has gone to the pub the boys keep saying you know it has all been a mistake i an on the mothers ruin crying into the very expensive internet and know i cant go home cos someone else is living in my lovely home will update you of progress tpmorrow sue
Look , youve been here 2 minutes, all I would suggest, is ' get a grip' and stop stressing so much.You get nowhere stressing.( this isnt meant to be nasty :)) Oh, secondly , give your male members a kick up the backside and tell them Adelaide wasnt built in a day !!!.The first month isnt easy and youve got to work together. :) Get the papers and take other peoples information and get on the phone and in the car.

PS You'll probably be able to find a more affordable internet connection once things are less stressful and you have more time to shop around and talk to others. At least you're on the internet for now.
