      Hi there, and welcome!

      The Adelaide hills are a nice place. After spending most of my life in the eastern suburbs, my family and I have made a 'tree change' to the hills in 2010. My dad - ever the englishman - says that being in the hills reminds him of being in the UK. And, now that I am here I am realising that LOTS of people from the UK choose to live in the hills. A milder climate and beautiful scenery are probably the reasons!! (Personally, I do not like it... the winters are too cold ;) )

      A word of warning (and this is not a bad thing) - the adelaide hills are considered a separate region of south australia to adelaide, and there is a perception that "the hills are so far away. This is untrue. The towns of Crafers, Stirling, Aldgate and Bridgewater are all very close to the city - even in peak hour traffic it only takes about 30 minutes to stirling (crafers is a bit closer.. aldgate and bridgie a bit further.). By public transport these towns are about 30-45 minutes away. Futher out are towns like Hahndorf, Littlehampton, Lobethal and Mt. Barker - but they are not much further. Other towns may be more remote, but these ones are all linked to the south eastern freeway and are very easy to get to.

      It is a nice place to live and it is fairly convenient - so if your husband can get a job that lets him work in the hills or even in the cbd or eastern suburbs definitely consider it.

      Feel free to PM me if you need more info.

      Good luck with your visa applications!
