we are in Bristol at the mo but visas submitted & hoping to be out sometime next year. We've done loads of research but as quick as someone tells you one place is great the next will tell you its not. We've decided that having looked on realestate.com, used google earth, this forum & 'Where to live guides; Adelaide' - we are gradually picking out 3 or 4 places that we like & will then have to see what we think when we get there. But as this whole process is all about life change we've decided that heart over head this time - last time we moved we let the head rule and ended up in Frampton Cotterell - hence the desire to emigrate!!
