    Hi All

     

    We are off to Glenelg mid August and was just woundering if anyone could reccommend any thing for us to do/go in between looking at suburbs, schools etc.

     

    Many thanks

    definatly a dolphin swim, not sure if they still go out in winter, but you get a wet suit anyway, they go out from glenelg , not ideal for little ones although you can pay less to watch and not swim

    Hi

     

    We were hoping that the dolphin trips would still be running. as our youngest was not old enough when we went to Florida.

    Have you moved over to Adelaide yet, if so where or where are you looking to move to.

    Did you check out schools while over there?

    Cheers

    we are still in uk, house sale is going through (everything crossed) 12th week now:err:

     

    kez was eight when we did the swim, but it was a rough day, so i had to really hang on to him, but it was fantastic (always been my dream)

     

    we found looking at schools confusing as we are not sure where we will end up,3 weeks was not long enough, all we know is we really love adelaide, but feel we need to look around alot more before we settle, i dont want to keep moving the boys around,we stayed in a caravan park in a cabin, nr to west lakes & semophore, did alot of travelling , trouble was i liked every where we went , although we didnt really try anywhere in land , a spend more time in the places we visited, love the sea & fishing, so will have a good look when we move (hopefully this yr aug/sept)

    have you got a rough idea of where you would like to end up living?

    hi

    wouldn't bother looking at school unless your sure where you will be living as takes ages and loads of prelim reaearch on schools on decs.com.au

     

    we took our kids to cleveland wildlife park in the hills great day out and ace piccies feeding kangaroos ect haighs chocs factoy tour very small conpared to cabreys but choccies very nice (think Lindt)

     

    central market good too my kids seem to eat their way round

    you can also get bikes from city bikes and ride though linear park

     

    hope you enjoy your reccie

    may sound odd, (and possibly a bit boring for the kids) but we found it useful to look at a few houses on open inspection - gave us a view on the differences between Aussie houses and UK ones. Get the Adelaide Advertiser on a Saturday, all the opens for the weekend are listed in there. Gives you a reason to visit some of the suburbs apart from just wandering round the streets.

     

    Have a good trip.
