    Carl (39) Kate (39) Jay (6) and Cara (2) and all our bikes are very excited and a bit wild around the eyes at the moment getting ready to uproot in Yorkshire and start a new life in Adelaide . We were there in February and loved it , so here we come....

     

    Kate is the main applicant and hopes to get a job in HR . (she is a HR specialist in the UK)

     

    We are researching where to rent at the moment ..... good links to the CBD , near good schools and ...THE BEACH

     

    thinking of Grange and surrounding to live . Anyone got any thoughts ?

     

    Also is there an equivalent OFSTEAD system for Adelaide schools or any grading system we should be aware of ?

     

    Should we bring the Gas cooker , washer , dryer , my daughter....ok , ok ignore the daughter bit .....

    Hi Carl and Kate

     

    welcome to PIA, great time of year to come out, we've also got a 6 year old great place to bring up kids.

    Weve lived in a few areas in Adelaide Blackwood is lovely but we are beach people, Tennyson close to the beach and the city (just up from Grange) but houses can be a bit more expensive and now as the developers are moving in and knocking down a lot of the older houses they are building 2 in its place so the gardens are getting very small, but there are lots of parks and of course the beaches.

     

    We've finally settled down south and loving it as the beach is close, good schools and cheaper houses with large blocks so for us its ideal, we commute into the city on the Southern express way which takes 40 minutes in rush hour. There's a direct train from Noarlunga and the government is extending the train lines to Seaford.

     

    Re the gas cooker, we brought over a new Rangemaster gas cooker we had to have it bored out as the gas is rated differently here (Im not technical so dont know all the terms!!!!) there is a good range of cooker here so unless it is something special I probably wouldn't bother!! as for washers, dryers ect it up to you really if you have room then yes but you can get some good deals here and also the government is giving $200 rebate on new washers if it is energy and water rated, so there are deals to be had.

    There's loads of great people on this site who have a wealth of knowledge so youll probably find all the answers to your questions!!!

     

    Good luck with the move, its a great place!!!!

    Hey guys welcome to the forum....

     

    I wouldnt bring the cooker as alot of rentals will have them in...as for the other stuff i would bring as much as you can afford to bring...you speak to anyone on here and they will always say i wish i brought this and i wish i had brought that....:unsure:

     

    Anything else just ask away....enjoy our last few months with your friends and family take lots of pics and cherish every moment.....:)
