We just this month got our 176 visa (whoopee!) and have to activate it before May next year.
We're looking to come out in the UK school summer hols to do this and to check out Adelaide in person as I guess many have done so before us (if I can save enough for the flights thanks to the 3x tax increases on long haul destinations).
It may work out financially prudent to fly to Melbourne and drive across to Adelaide so would be looking for somewhere in Adelaide for two weeks so we can tour the city, schools and houding suburbs.
I'm sure many here have done the same thing and any suggestions for a two week location around the 13th August for a family consisting of myself and the wife, two kids 13 and 10.
Great forum, I look forward to posting and reading much more in the coming weeks!
