    Hi

     

    I am from Yorkshire too and the hills or coromandel valley, eden hills, blackwood and belair are lovely areas. The hills are different here than the rolling moors but each to their own I suppose. I don't have many landscape pictures of the area but I am sure someone will.

    I would take some for you but the weather is not good at the moment and that would give a false impression. I think your OH posted on here the other day about being worried about the move.

     

    I would suggets that you check out housing aand use google maps and street view also Adelaide Hills Tourist Attractions | Adelaide Hills Regional Development Board

     

    and

    South Australia - Adelaide, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Kangaroo Island, Maps, Hotels, Online Booking

     

    Rental Properties, Homes for Rent and Apartments to Lease - realestate.com.au

     

    and

    www.adelaidebound.com

     

    We have been here just over 9mth and have experienced a lovelly long hot summer and now the weather is pretty cvold and wet but then it is winter. You also have to consider work prospects for you both too so check out agency websites together. The more you talk this through and gain as much information as you can.

    Adelaide and most of the suburbs are large open parks or reserves they call them here so plenty of places to walk the dogs.

    Hope you can find what you are looking for.

    Have you got Google Earth on your computer? If so, then in the Layers section (bottom left) tick the Panoramio Photos box. Little blue squares then appear on the map as you zoom into an area and there are loads of photos dotted all over Adelaide and the southern suburbs for you to look at - they have been uploaded by all different people so some are better than others - but there are loads of lovely scenic photos. You can also use google street view to check out the view.

    Nic,

     

    I'm from Yorkshire and Janet is from Derbyshire, we now live in Flagstaff Hill. Its not like the Dales but the views and walks are just a good.

    Hopefully I've attached some photos of the Sturt Gorge which is 5min walk from our house and the beach which is about 15min drive.

    The kids love walking through the Gorge looking for Koalas etc.

    Just look on Google earth and you'll see how many parks etc there are in SA.

    We love it here, just so much to do and see.

    5min walk to the Gorge or 15min drive to the beach (a lot better than 2hours drive to Skeggy)

    Good luck.

    Darren & Janet

    Hi Chris says that Adelaide must be good by the sounds of it as he used to go to Buxton regularly for his motorbike weekends and loved it there. A friend of ours who is touring South Australia at the moment on a motorbike has texted and said how great the roads are for motorbiking anyway.

    The hills around Adelaide are similar to Derbyshire, especially in the winter when everything is green.....come summer it resembles desert...lol.

     

    All you newbies will love it.....i am sure of that...
