hiya, we're going on 14th october, cant wait. we've rented a house in glenelg, not that we'll be able to afford to live there but i can manage two weeks while we suss the place out. Had a second viewing tonight so i'm keeping my fingers crossed while trying not to get my hopes up, but yes its very frustrating (and thats just the tidying up when someone does come to look).
Have a great time, hope it's exactly what we're all looking for, we can compare notes when we get back.

Won't be long now before we can see for ourselves what it's like in Adelaide we are looking forward to it too.
Will compare notes soon!!!
october is a great time to arrive in adelaide, springtime. the days are in the 20's, but the evenings still get quite cool. a selection of warm and cool clothes would have you prepared.

Just had tea,or dinner if your posh,in Glenelg at the surf club.Watched the sun go down with the wife and kids after work.Makes it all worthwhile.
Soon be you.
Posh git Robert LOL
It was around 17 degrees on wed, raised a little yesterday, warmed to over 25 today and due to be over 25 tomorrow then back down below 20 for sunday.
Tonight was wonderfull, sitting outside waiting for the BBQ to warm (well it is friday)
In answer to the question, bring a pair of jeans, and a couple of fleeces. It won't rain for long, and if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction you may need the fleece. Other wise its tee's and shorts and thongs. (footwear)
Been eves-dropping the site for a while now while going through the visa torture. PIA has been so so helpful at giving us a gee-up when we've needed it and just lots and lots of practical advice.
We had our visa granted in July and we're off on a recce trip in October too - 16th to 29th staying in West Lakes. The big move'll be around Easter. At the moment really keen on Henley Beach, but guess we'll know better after October.
We're a family of four Deb, Aid, Matthew (9) and Holly (6). We've had the occasional panic attack and wobble along the way but are really up for it now.
Looking good after your arrival here ;)
