OK, just to let you all know that I booked a room through Airbnb in Norwood. The apartment is very modern with a good review and the host has been very helpful throughout the process.
Congratulations, Ali. You seem very keen to get here and I'm sure as you will fit in beautifully.
Good luck with your final preparations and enjoy the countdown to paradise (unless you're not going there hahaha!)*
* yes, it's a weak joke...you probably realised that the suburb Paradise is north east SA, but if not then there's the explanation! I'm sorry; it's late and I have a strange sense of humour lol.
Good luck dude, I really hope all goes well for you. Keep us posted!!

Congratulations Ali.....that's really not long at all - the weather is turning warmer too - a really nice time to arrive in Adelaide. Norwood is lovely you will like living there. Good coffee shops (and tea) and a really lively atmosphere and good food places to go out and eat.
We too are heading out on October 20, but don't get in until the 22. I guess that is because we are coming from a bit farther away, and heading the other direction. I'm not sure that Adelaide is ready for both of us at the same time, so it is probably best that our arrivals are staggered by a day! Are you going to the get-together in early november, we are wondering if we would be the only non-poms there. I am so excited for you to have your adeventure beginning, and it is a great help to put perspective in this hectic time when the stress of the move too often dislpaces the excitement for us. We look forward to meeting you in person. BTW we too are looking for a place in the city, and not a southern suburb.
Keep on smiling and good luck with the move
We were able to get a 2 week rental from Kris at Margarita rentals (the one in glandore), haven't seen any reviews of them here, so maybe I will be getting some new intel for future PIA'ers. We likely had slightly different needs than you, and decided on Blackwood/eden hills as our destination, mainly due to the proximity to the school we wanted our daughters to attend. Although it is not assigned to a catchment area, we want to be able to walk the kids to and from school, and be present in school activities to help integrate into the community. Recently I have heard a few good comments on here about the hills and blackwood areas being nice and friendly for families, so we are excited that by mere happenstance we have found a good suburb. Now its just a matter finding a rental that is available in the 2 weeks we have to find one-AAAAARGH! I am sure that by being in a shared accomodation setting, you will be plenty motivated to find the right kind of place quickly. I am sure that we will both be looking on the same sites, but if you want to PM me with your e-mail and what you are looking for, we will pass along any gems that we come accross that fit your requirements. 2 weeks from this moment we will still be in the air, but you should be just about arriving.
