    Do you know where you are going to be working? What are you wanting from an area? Lots of people who ask about suburbs want to be close to the beach and there are lots of nice areas near the beach but there are also lots of nice areas away from thr beach if you are not bothered about the beach. Are you wanting somewhere with lots of things to do, somewhere quiet or something in between. It's a bit hard to advise on areas unless we know what it is you are looking for.

    We have started to think about South Plympton but not heard that much about it. Also the boys want to know about Judo clubs, Scouts and Cubs, and soccer clubs.

    Work will probably dictate to a certain degree the areas you look at settling in. TBH what suits one won't suit another. Do you have any idea of where you might be working or a commute timeframe in mind? Also budget. Some areas are more pricey than others and depending on your avalable budget for a rental or your expectations and then reality of earnings, it can vary.

     

    As for schools, you can't really narrow it down till you've found an area or two you like. We have an entire section of the forum dedicated to Education and schools so perhaps have a read of some threads there and post and ask specifics on schools in that section.

    Luckily I've been to Adelaide a fair few times now for decent chunks of time so have a good feel for areas I like and also have a good idea of schools to consider. But some of those are outside of the area we will be living in the first year or so but we are keeping our options open. We also know the areas we want to look at to settle longer term and so it makes it all a lot easier for me/us.

     

    You can find info about soccer clubs in the Socialising section of the forum. And if you post and ask in a new thread in either News or For The Kids you will hopefully get some info on judo clubs and so on.

     

    Scouts and Cubs SA - http://www.sa.scouts.com.au/ Website should be a good source of info for you.
