We are Richard (37), Sarah (34), Phoebe (6) and Ollie (3). We are right at the start of the process of emigrating to Adelaide. We are about to apply for our 475 visa, but first I will be going out to Adelaide for a reccie (neither of us have ever been to Oz before!) w/b 19th May 2008 for a week only. The main purpose of the trip is to suss out a decent school, then decent suburb, and lastly, job prospects. I thought it would be better to stay in a B & B in the suburbs so I can chat to the locals and ascertain local knowledge about the better areas to live and best schools. Are there any gatherings going on that week that I could gate-crash or is anyone willing to meet me for a chat and give me the low-down on the area. Also, can anyone give me any advice to the above questions?
