Thank you so much, It is very hard to understand how life is in another country/area - I just wanted some reasurance that Adelaide is a good place to raise a family. We have friends who live on the Gold Coast, they love it there, but obviously at times find it very hot.
Thanks for the advice about the areas, we would rent first, We area going to come over for a holiday first, but that's not likely to be atleast another year yet - unless we win the lottery (which is highly impossible as we don't even do it!)
Have you been back to England yet?
You've put your finger on it there Libby - I'd never thought of it like that before - but so true.

Hi, moving to Adelaide soon & have been reading yours posts. It's nice to know there is advice out there if you need it. I think hiring a car & having a look around is the best way forward. Havespent 12 months travelling in oz but didn't spend more than 2 wks in Adeliade, but did like the feel of the place. Carolyn

Colonnades or seaford Centre ( we are down south) where there are lots of shops covering everything you need in Colonnades case.
We are in Noarlunga downs which is a pants area according to some...!!!yes some areas have social housing but lets not all become snobs on arrival, Jac gets the train into the city approx 40 mins and enjoys the trip, colonnades is 5 mins away the beach is 5 mins away the kids school (Port Noarlunga) is 5 mins away , the river (Onkarparinga River Reserve) is 2 mins away, the wineries in Mclaren Vale are 15 mins drive away...........we like many were looking at Seaford and Hallett cove and liked these areas but ended up somewhere in the middle......so its good to give yourself an idea but dont make your mind up before having a look.
