    Differences between Melbourne over Adelaide

    Thanks Diane. Our kids are 9 and 11 and swim, drum and dance and our interests are cycling, running and swimming. Think Adelaide may suit us. Any more tips would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

    Differences between Melbourne over Adelaide

    Thanks for your replies. I agree Melza, where ever we settle needs to be right in the long term not just cheaper. My OH will work eventually but as a physiotherapist will have to go through the registration and exams to be able to work out there long term. We will see her first year as settling in the family and going through this process before she looks for work. We have a boy aged 11 and a girl aged 9 who both swim for teams. Our boy drums and our girl does ballroom and modern dance. We are into running, cycling and swimming and like to do 10k runs and this year tried a sprint triathlon for the first time. So our interests would revolve around these things. Would be really grateful therefore of some positives about Melbourne and Adelaide regarding what people find great there for families.Thanks

    Cheers blossom79, what do you like about Adelaide? I can then see if it has things we like as a family. (boy who's 11 and a daughter who's 9) thanks I'm advance.
  4. Hi I have been offered a job on a 457 in Melbourne, but have just have just been told about another location for the same job in Adelaide. To be honest I have not really considered Adelaide before and would be interested in peoples opinions on whether they would choose Adelaide over Melbourne and vice versa? I like the idea of living someplace that is not quite as big as Melbourne and get more for my buck, but I don't know if Adelaide has much going on about it. We have done a lot of research into Melbourne to accept the job, now this alternative office base has come along has given us a dilemma. Would be interested in any perspectives on both locations! Thanks, Ginge

  6. Hi All, my job offer has now come in (on a 457 visa) and just doing the final household calculations to see if we can survive on my single salary. Looking at the rental market first until my wife has sorted her registration papers and exams to become a practicing Physio, (she has been a professional Physio for 20 years, anyway that is another story) what we have been wandering is that...... is the rental charge all you pay or do you have to pay the council tax and water rates etc as in the UK? or does that fall on the landlords shoulders. I understand we pay the utilities bills (although that would be good if we didn't and that was the landlord too) Can anyone advise what you pay above the rental price quoted? i.e $450 per week + + +. Also any links for calculators would be useful Thanks. We have also found it difficult to budget an expected cost for a "Council Tax" type equivalent for properties any help on this would also be appreciated.
  7. Good Evening, I am lucky enough to be going through a job process for a move to Melbourne, with a company who are going to sponsor me for visa's and things . The wage may not support my family totally, so my wife will need to continue her professional career as a Physiotherapist. We know a little bit about the requirements but we are looking for persons who are physios in Australia especially the Melbourne area, that she can use as a sounding board for questions relating to prospects, salary, qualifications etc. If there are someone out there that can assist please get in touch.
