Came across this forum via a google search and had a little peak at your posts & decided to make a thread in the hope of some help & advise.
I'm a single mum to a little boy and my mother and I have decided we would like to move to Oz. My sister lives in Melbourne so we most likely can get in through that way. However we don't wish to live in Melbourne or Sydney having watched on TV home or away we noticed a lot of people go to Adelaide and it seems appealing to us! The problem we have is its not on our door step. when we lived in Spain we could holiday there often finding out locations and the people until we was 100% happy so moving to Oz is a big gamble and very scary! We are not looking to move now because we still have 2 old dogs and my mother doesn't wish to put them to sleep before their time nor does she wish for them to make such a big journey.
Basically I wanted to list a few things and with your knowledge you can point us in the right direction (fingers crossed!)
* So as I stated I am a single mum so good schools and just an over all nice way of life for children to grow up in is important to us.
* I am a self employed dog groomer working from home so need to be in a good area for my work.
* We don't want to be out in the sticks but at the same time not in the city
* Be nice to be around other ex pats but not a must! I am British and my mum is German
Not sure what else to right really but any help and advise would be very much appreciated
