I wonder if anyone can help? Need some advice.
We are a family of 5 (myself age 34, husband age 33, and 3 kids 12yrs, 4yrs & 2yrs). We moved from Bristol in the UK to Perth in July 2011 on a 457 sponsorship. My manager has recently approached me to ask if I would like to head-up the Recruitment for the company in Adelaide. Having made the move from the UK, I am not too sure if we want to move again.
We are willing to go to Adelaide for a Recci early January. Can anyone give us any advice on the best surburbs to live in around Adelaide? I don't mind up to an hours journey into the CBD for work on train etc. We are a young family and ideally would like to stay near the coast. My daughther will start High school in Feb 2012, so need to be in a good catchment area for a state High School. My son eho is 12 would also be starting pre-primary in Feb 2012 so any ideas on good state schools is really appreciated.
We would ideally like to live somewhere where there is a mixture of Poms and Aussie's and has to be family friendly, not worried about loads of nightlife (as with 3 kids we don't get to go out much and enjoy being at home) also has to have a local soccer team for the other half to join.
It is quite scary, as we do feel settled in perth, and we live quite a simple life (enjoy going to the beach and parks with the kids). We will have a budget of around $500pw renting to spend and would require a 4x2.
Any help with info greatly appreciated.
Thank's in adavance
