Hi there Gina,
Firstly, the Pomsinadelaide forum helped me so much when I moved to Adelaide in 2008, I would have been lost without it so I recommend using it regularly to ask questions and find out as much as you can.
I hated it here for the first year as I was so homesick but I love it now and it feels like home. After staying here for 2.5 years I gained my permanent residency and now we ping pong back to the UK every six months for 6 months following the summers as much as we can. A hectic life but a good one!
Wishing you lots of luck in the thinking and action jnr of your plans.
