    IS Noarlunga not a nice area then? I'm trying to establish nice suburbs to live in - can I remove Noarlunga from this then? What about Seaford, Moana and Christies beach?

    Terrible place to live, look somewhere away from the great beach, the lovely foreshore great RSL and the real beach side living.

    its horrible....:-)

    then it will remain the hidden jewel andi can continue to enjoy the vacant beach for longer...

    So you'd say it's a great place for a young family then?

     

    Port Noarlunga is a lovely place for a young family. Not only do you have a great beach but also the kids will just love the wooden fort at Jubilee reserve. You are just minutes away from the shopping centre and there are many sporting clubs for them to join when older.

    When I have been a bit down I drive along The Esplanade from Christie Beach and as you go over the hill into Port Noarlunga you just look at the view and it is an instant pick me up. I still say to myself 'I live here' every time. Lovely place to live. :wink:

    Thanks! I think it is at the top of my 'places I want to live' list! Seaford and Moana are next - what are they like?

    Noarlunga = Noah - lung - ga but run it together with no gaps .

     

    That's how hubby says it. Just when said at normal speed you barely hear the 'Noah' part.

    We're near Sauerbier Creek - that's a tricky one too.

     

     

    Just the reason why we use the work Beck in Yorkshire - for any small stream,creek.
