When I know what date we will get back to Adelaide I'll throw out 2 or 3 dates over two weekends, so hopefully we can accomodate (almost) everyone.
In the meantime please vote here for time of day:

So glad to see so many of you are voting on the other thread. Still waiting on my visa but hoping to be back in another week or so...send me good vibes!
I'm not a newbie but we are childfree as well. We live in Seaford though so going out socialising in the City is out for us as one of us can't have a drink.
I work full-time in the City though so if anyone else works in the City, we could meet for lunch or after work for dinner.
I'm happy to meet up for lunch or dinner one day when we are back. Even if the overall vote is for a weekend for the 1st meet up, we can always have the next meet up on a weeknight, as it seems there are enough people interested in that option to make it worthwhile.
we are child free, well i have 2 teenagers so dont count them and we know of two other couples who are child free, and would love to do some meet up. we are at Hallett cove

Hi there - we are also child free, far too young for that ;-) what I would like to ask is that coming from London and being in our later twenty's will Adelaide be enough for us? I've heard mixed things about its more like a large town than a City, we couldn't get a PR visa but can get state sponsorship with Adelaide so its our way in if you like....any views would be welcome!!
I think that's an entirely new thread Emma;) It all depends on what you are looking for. No, in my opinion, Adelaide is not a city and is more like a large town, and I wouldn't have wanted to live there in my early-mid 20s. Heck, I'm settling for it now, to be honest, but it's where my husband is from, so I'll trade off...at least it has a low cost of living and you can use your xtra funds, if you manage well, to do a lot of travelling. My husband likes to go clubbing, and we lived in London for a while. He got into DJing too while there and he's not bored with Adelaide even after that, so it takes all kinds:)
As far as those of you not arriving until later in the year, as far as I'm concerned, we can have a gathering a month and things in between if there are enough of us. I'm keen to meet as many childfree peeps as there are out there, so I'm happy to organise things!
Sorry we won't be over till later in the year, but it is a good idea, we did the same in Feb this year when we were there. We had a great time, if I remember correctly there were 16 of us sat chatting and drinking. Unfortunately the time clock beat me around midnight and had to hit the sack at that point.
Everybody had a good night so I'm sure you will have a great time on your meet up too.
Good luck with it.

I come from Luton originally. I would put Adelaide on a similar size scale to that. Adelaide is small for a City and it is surprising the village mentality of people.
