Old post - but new Facebook group for those childfree by choice in Adelaide:

There are plenty of things to do and see, depending on what you like to do, for example this year already (and we are only half way through!!) we have been to see the World Tennis Challenge, Clipsal 500 (car racing), 10 shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Wicked the musical, Cirque de Soleil, INXS and Train and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra playing Queen. We regularly eat out at some great restaurants. If you enjoy going out and about and eating out buy the Entertainment Book http://www.entertainmentbook.com.au/ when you get here and you will save loads.
I would say for us there are just as many things to do as when we lived in Nottingham and in some cases we get to see things in Adelaide we would have to travel to London to see if we still lived in the UK.
We are not into pubs and clubs but Hindley Street in the city on a Friday/Saturday night is always pretty lively.
I think your location is important as well. We have always lived no more than 15 mins from the city centre. It takes us 15 mins to get to Glenelg, 15 mins to the city and on our road we can walk to use the bus, train and tram, so we only run one car. This makes life easy and pretty stress free.
Just arrived on my lonesome. Don't know whether to share a house and be forced to make friends or live alone and atleast get used to the neighbours. However, whilst daunting getting here and with all the associated emotions...I'm glad I did it. People are friendly, work buddies are polite and nice to me...makes a change!
My priority is getting a place to rent and then look to make friends, based on the people in Adelaide I don't expect it to be too long...
Hope you can push some friends on to me.
I moved here with my partner and no kids.
Now on my own with no kids, so anyone wanna meet up for a drink sometime ?
I do monthly (adults only) pub meet ups through a Facebook Expats group (and also just started the group for childfree in Adelaide) so those are places to find people to meet up with for drinks as well.

i'm 28, Scottish and just moved to Adelaide for a year- looking to meet some new people and make friends- anyone interested in meeting up perhaps? I'm single and don't have any kids, like socialising and think I'm kinda friendly! Don't know anyone and working part-time at the mo- if you don't fancy meeting up do you have any ideas of things to do that are quite social? Thanks!
We have a pub meet next Weds 8th June through Expats in Adelaide (link above in this thread so come join the group)
