  1. Hi, cars do cost alot of money here to buy. You could check out the oz website for values on to compare with the sale price in England to what it would cost to buy here. Europeon car parts and service can be very expensive and parts not always readily available. My OH works for Repco authorised repairer, which gives nationwide warrenty on service/repairs. He is at Blackwood not far from Hallett Cove. Warrenty are available to buy, but I believe only on cars up to 10 years old. Hope that helps!

  3. Hotels south of the city

    Hi. I cant recommend this place as I dont know anyone who has stayed. However, my brother in law is coming over this week and asked us about places near to us where he can stay. We have booked him in at Esplanade Hotel at Brighton and this is costing $350 for the week. The place is in a lovely setting right on the sea front, lots of restaurants close by up Jetty Road. We will know more later this week about the place. I have attached a link for you to look at; All the best. Carole

  7. Which Removal Company?

    I am sure people will have had good experiences with White & Co, but just to let you know we didnt. Travelled from Lancashire, so the depo near yours may be better. Goods were damanged and some went missing, plus delivery was a lot lot later than what they said it would be!
  8. What to bring and what to leave.

    I go with bring everything too! Even Quit covers, Duvet (it does get cold here in winter). Another thing we did and wished we hadnt ,was throw loads of our clothes out. Not sure what height you are, but I find it difficult to find clothes for the slightly short. Again, even bring your jumpers and coats. Not sure if you were thinking of shipping your car either, but they are expensive too here. If you hadnt got air con, dont worry, it can be fitted quite cheaply. Not meaning to make it sound cold and miserable, we get lovely hot summers as well.

  10. wine tour

    We have done a few. We have used Des's Mini Buses and they have suggested places to go and even booked us in at the winery. All you have to do is get enough people to fill the mini bus. We have noticed that not all wineries like big groups, late teens sort of amount.
  11. 2 month update

    Hi Andi Great post. I totally remember that feeling especially at the 2 month stage...OMG what have we done I constantly thought and yes lots of tears! It took around 14 months before I felt settled and even now 2 years in, you get those low days. From my experience, friends make a big impact on getting settled here... they become like a family. We started off in Marino, then Seacliff, so know Kingston Park quite well, so I think you have chosen a great place to start, those views and beachs close by can help alot on a down day. If you every fancy a brew or a glass or two of wine, give us a shout. Take care, it does get easier Carole x
