    Thread: Hi Everyone

    1. #11
      Any recommended suburbs would be helpful.
      We are looking for a family friendly environment but not to far from a cafe / vibrant centre so we can get out easily. Not more than about 30min commute (at rush hour) from Norwood.

      Hi, we have never been to SA as was planning initially to go to WA so also have to rely on what people say about areas. I dont have a job yet as awaiting AHPRA registration so could live anywhere but ideally by the coast with a nice beach would be great.

      We started this whole process back in September 2009! So it has been a long journey.
      We have just had our meds and police check finalised (2 days ago). Just wondering if anyone knows roughly how long it takes to grant the visa after everything is finalised?
      I know silly question - how long is a peice of string, would just like a few ideas.
      I was thinking of handing in my notice this week, bit of a risk, but we want to leave mid June- I have a job to go to:D.
      Hopefully the wait will be over soon and we will be off to Australia, getting very excited now.

      Hi Antonia, I am also fairly new to posting, although I've been tracking the site for a while. I waited until I got state sponsorship before posting as I couldn't bear the agony of talking about it before there was some certainty. As for how long visas take after meds, I'm hoping on about 3 weeks, having looked at many others on the site. It's been a week for us now but we've had confirmation that they've been sent to Aus.

      Your job sounds interesting and you seem to know a bit about where you want to live. We have no idea as we haven't been to Adelaide before, but we are hoping to visit in October before moving in January. Personally I want to try the coast, but who knows.

      I hope you hear soon, I'll look out for the whoops of joy. Good luck.

      Hi Antonia and welcome, we uploaded our medicals which were finalised and we were waiting on a foreign police check for couple of weeks, when that was received we uploaded and got our visa grant the next day!

      All the best,

      Norwood itself is a great area, lots of cafes, good shops and nice atmosphere. You could look around the Belair/Blackwood areas which are lovely (put those suburbs in on www.realestate.com.au and leave the "search surrounding suburbs" option selected) or the North Eastern suburbs such as Athelstone, Highbury, Dernancourt, Tea Tree Gully, Vista, Fairview Park which are all within a good commute to Norwood and each have local shops/cafes plus are also within easy reach of Tea Tree Plaza, the nearest main shopping mall. Or out towards Golden Grove (again, that has its own shops, cafes etc but neither that or TTP are as 'cosmopolitan' as Norwood) there are suburbs such as Wynn Vale and Greenwith - probably on the outer side of 30 mins to Norwood but not a bad drive.

      Unley, which is to the south of the City, has some nice bars, cafes and restaurants and again, a nice atmosphere so anywhere around there, or Mitcham is good.

      After that you have the beach side suburbs: Henley, Glenelg, and possibly Brighton - Marion is the main shopping mall in that direction.

      Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
