    Hi Everyone!!!! I really need as much advice and help as possible from you fellow poms! Im thinking about making the big move from Kent (UK) to Adelaide having been offred a job there.

     

    Ive obviously read lots and investigated via websites etc but would like to hear your views about the city. I fell in love with Sydney when I travelled Australia 4 years ago. How does Adelaide compare? I understand that the cost of living is reasonably cheap so what would a decent salary be? Ive been offered in the region of $60,000AD. Is this enough to have 'good living'?

     

    Is the city lively (im a 30 yr old man) and love to shop and go clubbing. Is there a 'young' expat scene?

     

    I would really appreciate your views and hopefully will help a very confused man out...I seriously havent slept in 4 days now...please help!!!!! Thank you!!! Lee :D

    hiya,

     

    he's 39. i dont know how to compare with sidney having never been.

    he lives in a quiet suburb right on the beach, so proberbly not for you but adelaide itself is a lively city.

    as for your salary $60k 's not bad (about £24,300) obviously it depends whether you intend to buy or rent. he's on about $50k and i dont think he struggles.

    Adelaide is apparently much cheaper than Sydney.

     

    hope this helps. :?

    Hi to both of you and welcome to the site :lol:

     

    Can't help with comparing adelaide to sydney as never been to either but I am sure you will be quite comfortable of your wage depending on how much of the high life you want to lead :lol:

     

    there are quite a few members that live in Adelaide that will be sure to help you out once they are up and about :D
