      You've picked a really good cross section of places there, can't fault any of them.

      Are you looking for primary or high schools? Will you be dependent on public transport? Do you prefer flat coast or hilly trees? Edge of town or more central? Do your kids have any particular interests/excel in any particular area? (some schools have special programmes - languages, sports, music, performing arts, science etc) Do you have any preferences for mixed/sigle-sex/private/state schooling?

      Hope that's given you a few (more!) things to think about (sorry!) - shout out and I'm sure everyone on here will do their best to answer questions along the way...

      Calvery Hospital is a great place to work.I work there as a sub contractor, more like a family than a place of work.

      Hi Mandy P and welcome to Adelaide. I arrived here two weeks ago and am staying in temp accom right on same street as Calvary Hosp in North Adelaide with my teenage daughter. I got the temp accom in advance from the internet using stayz.com (holiday apartments). Bus links from city to the hosp are good. All bus routes seem to go to the city, like spokes of a wheel.

      Marryatville High School has good rep - I am thinking of moving to its zone. Good luck and message me if you'd like to meet up for coffee!

      Hi Mandy.

      Marryatville high has probably the best reputation for a public school in the city!
      Tiny catchment area though!! Be very certain of being in the zone, and be sure to put up a struggle for entry!!competition is fierce.
      Marryatville primary is a feeder, but no garauntee there either, i would say the primary is an excellent place, my daughter loves it.

      Rentals can be expensive in the east, e.g $550 pw for a 4 bed, but you do get good access to the city, shops etc..

      Good luck with the move!!
