5 weeks in and loving it!!!

    Recommended Posts

    We arrived at the end of August, had 1 week in Melbourne and then it was on to Adelaide.. First impressions after Melbourne - that it feels very country. Cars are older, roads are quiet (in comparison) and there's nobody here (where are the kids?).

     

    Anyway, we are now settling in to our long term rental, right next to the Hub in Aberfoyle Park, 2 minute walk from Hub primary school.

     

    I must say, we are loving it! What a beautiful place - This whole area is soooooo nice. We've been down to Victor Harbour and up into the hills, not far from the house (waterfall gully), to Beaches around Noarlunga, christies beach, Hallet cove, to glenelg jetty and to the city. We are very impressed by what we've seen and the places have far surpassed our expectations with regards to cleanliness and beauty... and the roads are so calm! No crazy drivers, most are very well trained when it comes to road rules and are very polite (will give way)...

     

    Our experience so far is heaps good and will I think, be staying here for a long long time...

     

    ...just need to get a job now so the money will flow both ways.. oh, and find friends of course...

     

    (sorry for what seem to be random comments, it's been a busy, sometimes crazy, and enjoyable experience).

    Well done mate - you've arrived in a great part of the world. No agg' - peaceful place.

     

    Our 3 boys all went to the Hub Primary - youngest will be moving to the high school at the end of the year.

     

    Good luck with the job search.

    Wow glad you feel like its somewhere you will be staying for a long time, thats how we felt about Perth when we went on a reccie, but now hubby's job has come off the WA list we are moving to Adelaide instead and hope we feel the same way about SA too!!

     

    We are looking at Seaford area, have you been there and if so what do you think to it??

    I've spent a few hours there, but all of them at the garage getting the car problems sorted out. So I can give the name of a good mechanic, but don't know how it is to live there. Seems pretty, but pretty quiet too.

    Glad you have settled in well. We bought a house in Aberfoyle Park last year near the campus schools and we love it here too. Our eldest will be off to High school in the new year and our twins love the school that they attend. We have been amazed by how many koalas that we have seen around Aberfoyle Park.
