I didn't do this myself, since my partner was already over here with money to support me, and I still ahd a few things to pay for in Switzerland, so I just waited until I was here, opened an account, then once the payments were finished in Switzerland I transferred the lot over and closed the Swiss account.
www.drive.com.au is a pretty good website for used cars. If you join the RAA (breakdown service) they do vehicle inspections to check out the condition of the used car before you buy it.
Where in the city are you looking to stay? You might want to ask the universities if they have any student accommodation you can stay in, since term doesn't start until february.
Chocolate. Don't worry, Mr Haigh travelled to Switzerland about a hundred years ago and learned from Lindt-Sprungli, then came back to adelaide and set up a shop. Haigh's chocolate is still going, and it's good. Lindt is available in the Supermarkets. Green&Blacks is also in the supermarkets and also pretty good. Personally, I can't eat Cadbury since living in Switzerland.
Cheese. Adelaide central markets has pretty much any cheese you can think of, so that's covered too. The only thing that's missing is fondue weather (waiting for the first snow of winter just doens't work here...)
Its a bit outta the way if you dnt work near to where you live.....the shops are good, its quite quiet but it suits us to the ground as we were bit of country folk back in the UK.
