We are in the North Eastern suburb of Redwood Park. It is a lovely place to live and has a great school. I personally think the North East is a great place to live and I will not comment on living in the South as I dont live there. There are great areas all over Adelaide, North, South, East and West. Try driving in each direction using your place of work as a starting point and driving for how long you want to commute, you are bound to see areas you like the look of and will give you more of an idea on where you want to live
Don't overlook the Western suburbs between the City and the sea.
Why do a lot of people moving over here always look to the south ?
cos they like them there smallish hills and the feeling of space.
Sailed SS Australis out of Southampton 1977.Arrived October in Adelaide via Melbourne 1977.Liverpool/London 1987 - 1992
Adelaide 1992 to eternity:)and one day you'll wake up and stop counting how long you've been here.
Anywhere in Adelaide has a feeling of space copmpared to the Uk
I have no feelings regarding any north / south devide and I certainly wouldn't say the south is a hole!!!!!!
I came from the South Coast of England, 7 miles of golden sandy beaches and a beach hut I could access any time of year.
My primary reason for moving to the North/East suburbs was quite simple, my brother lived in Oakden and I could see no possible reason why I would want to move my whole family 12,000 miles and still be over an hours drive from him, beach or no beach. As I said sweeping statements that the whole Northern Suburbs are nasty, cheap and rough are not true. People say the same about Hackam & places along the southern suburbs. Not everywhere is a bed of roses, as with the UK. I lived in a house worth 1/2 a million quid, ten minutes down the road was the dodgiest council estate on the South Coast, bus drivers were afraid to take the buses down there after dark.
Since Salisbury was mentioned as the work place, it would seem obvious to start looking nearby and I have good local knowledge of the area. If they are desperate to live near a beach then Semaphore down would be natural choices. Just don't be put off some very lovely areas by the reputation of another. People say the North is cheap to buy but last week in the paper Holden Hill had the highest property price moves by 46% and Salisbury Heights 36.6%. The further north they build, the closer you become to the city. There are good transport links from Gawler to town but I guess it all depends on what you are looking for as a family.

Hi Angela, I live near the Salisbury area and also work in the community. What sort of info/help do you need?
I'd take a good look around Salibury before comitting to move there. There are some parts of it which are very ferrell (Chavvy).
