    G-Day,

     

    We have just registered and thought we should introduce ourselves! We are scheduled to fly out to Adelaide on 12th October and can not wait!

     

    There are a few areas that we would like some advice on, if anyone could provide any advice it would be appreciated.

     

    We have signed ourselves up for the Meet and Greet Service on arrival and applied for Government Accommodation, Has anyone used either of these services?

     

    If so what were your experiences?

     

    Many thanks

    hello and welcome to pia :cute:

     

    haven't had either service (we are still not out there!) - but from reading i gathered that meet&greet service has been great for everyone!

     

    re the accommodation: make sure you have a backup plan, because you won't know if you've got it until a couple of weeks before you fly - hope someone can confirm that?!

    Hey,

     

    We used both. We are in OAA at the moment in Oaklands Park and have no complaints. It is cheap and in a great area and has everything you need. We also used the meet and greet, again it was great, our greeter took us out a couple of time to do bank accounts, show us around and we are able to contact him if we have any questions. He and his wife are so nice. He even took the OH to a job interview and introduced us to 2 other couples, one of whom took us shopping and the other took us out looking for cars. I would highly recommend both services. If you get there and it is a real dump you can refuse it. The Housing SA man who came out to meet us was really nice as well. All in all a great way to get settled in cheaply.
