    Hi Myself, hubby and 2 sons and daughter (all teenagers) are arriving in Adelaide on Wednesday. Staying in rental in Port Noarlunga for 4 weeks - rented from Tamara - Homes Down Under and will be frantically looking for more permanant rental from 20th October but unsure of what area as all depends on jobs, schools etc. Found this site very helpful, hope to attend one of the many meetings arranged on here in the future. See you all soon.

    Safe journey - you will find a rental - just start looking as soon as you arrive and work out where you want to settle...seaford/aldinga are all nice and affordable (bit further south to P Noarlunga)- just depends on the location you are after. Good luck!

    We don't do 'frantic' here in SA - you'll soon get the hang of it! :)

    Good luck with it all!

     

    Try not to spoil your last few days with family and friends by worrying about sorting everything out here! It will all fall into place.

     

    Aussies are lovely and we've had so much help. You'll have a great time.

    Hi

    We arrived in 4 September, and got our longterm rental a week later. If you already know which school you want your children to go to, just concentrate to find house in the school zone. School is obliged to enrol your children if you live in the zone, no matter how full the school is.

     

    Another tip: bring your family CV, bank statement, and if you could afford, say that you are willing to pay three months in advance. That's what we did, but in the end, we still pay weekly although the estate agent wanted us to pay 3 months. It happened because probably forgot about it, as the agent who dealt with us first time, was different with the one that saw us for the contract.

     

    regards
