    We're at Coromandel Valley, nice area and our kids go to Belair primary, they've settled really well n made loads of friends.

    Belair and Blackwood are good areas, good community n central to everything.

    No Tims allowed in Adelaide! Away ye go!

     

    hehe - just kiddin

     

    There is a big Celtic supporters club in Adelaide. I drove past it (at high-speed) the last time I visited. You might want to look it up so that you'll have some like-minded pals to speak to and some shoulders to cry on.

     

    Cheers

    if you have started to pack, don't forget your winter stuff. it can get cold here and rains, don't want to put you off as it is not as cold or as wet as Scotland but we came out without winter stuff 20 years ago, no internet to google on, so didn't realise and had to buy winter clothes and bedding etc. Sheidow Park and Hallett Cove are popular choices but it would depend on work as public transport isn't always ideal. Good luck its a great place to bring up kids, so much to do with sports and beach etc

    Hi joe

    We are waiting to hear from SA to see if we have got sponsorship and will then swap our visa over. We are hoping that the new SMP will be a positive change for us. Feels like our life is on hold, still it will make even more special when we get that golden ticket!!!!!!!

    Hi Joe

     

    We applied for a 175 and then were told that we had a 3 year wait so we are changing to a 176 in the hope that we can get there quicker.
