I've never been to Adelaide, but see some good reports so am interested in understanding where some of the best family suburbs are so I can look at schools, housing, transport etc. We are a family in our 40s and have a six year old daughter and most important to us on choosing an area to live would be schooling. We are therefore looking for a good suburb with a family feel close to the beaches, but also close enough for some biking at the weekends in the parks/hills.
I would plan to work in the CBD and have a budget of about $550,000 for a purchase and about $400-$450 PW for renting (I don't like renting so would look to buy asap). I would be happy with a longer commute (anything up to 45 mins) if it meant being in a good suburb for our daughters schooling.
Would appreciate as much feedback as possible to give a good feel about living in Adelaide and it's suburbs.
Thanks so much - Rich
