I've been browsing this site for a few weeks and it really has been invaluable! Thankyou!
So now i'm jumping in and looking for some advice please..
My husband has been offered a job in SA and it is likely to be in south/eastern suburbs initially. We will be on 457 visa if all goes to plan and i wondered if anyone would be able to point us in the direction of suburbs to consider?
I totally understand that opinions will be subjective and it's a hard one to answer but to give it a bit more context
- We have 4 children so ideally need 4 bedrooms
- We will be renting, and looking for nice but ultimately affordable areas as we will be keeping on our home in the UK for the time being, but need to budget for times when this may be void
- Ideally, we would prefer to be somewhere with shops/cafes/schools within walking distance but getting into the CBD daily is not a big priority
- MOST IMPORTANTLY we are looking for somewhere with good, welcoming schools and playgroups and lots of variety in terms of activities to get the children settled quickly.
We won't have to opportunity to do a reccie visit beforehand but will have a few weeks in a short term rental to sort out a long-term place to stay. As we will all land at once it would be useful for us to have a short-list of areas to look at before we arrive
Thanks in advance for any replies
