    Australian Cities are lonely places

    Australian cities are becoming lonelier places to live and the way we build them may be to blame, a report says. Melbourne-based public policy think tank the Grattan Institute found we place significant emphasis on creating sustainable and productive cities but pay little attention to making them "friendly". Its new report, Social Cities, found the way cities are constructed affects how citizens interact. "A lack of face-to-face contact can put our health at risk," report author Jane-Frances Kelly said in a statement. "Unfortunately, there are worrying signs that isolation and loneliness are growing in Australia." The report found evidence that Australian city-dwellers have fewer friendships now than 20 years ago and 25 per cent of households are occupied by a single person. "By no means are we saying that everyone who lives alone is lonely," Ms Kelly said. "But if more Australians live by themselves this makes connecting with others outside the home all the more important." The report found that even small changes such as more park benches or turning unused housing lots into small parks can make cities friendlier places to live. "Improving social connection is not necessarily hard or costly ... big returns can come from small outlays," Ms Kelly said. "Australian cities are expected to keep growing for the foreseeable future. "If those cities are to improve quality of life for all then they will need to meet our social as well as our material needs."

    Australias Most Liveable Cities

    THE Property Council of Australia has released the results of its nationwide My City: The People's Verdict survey, conducted by Auspoll in December 2011. Some 5231 Australians were asked to judge their city's performance in 17 areas, including design, safety, education, housing and government. Yesterday, the Property Council used the release of the results as a backdrop to launch their Make My City Work initiative. The online campaign aims to get a range of government, business, professional and community groups working together to make our sities more liveable. Here's how our capital cities fared this year, ranked from one to 10. 1 - ADELAIDE OVERALL Australia's most liveable city for the second year running THE GOOD Almost three in four locals saw Adelaide as an affordable place to maintain a good standard of living. The city ranked highest for health services, with 67 per cent satisfaction. Four out of five believed the city had an attractive environment that encouraged a wide range of outdoor activities. THE BAD Fewer than half - 48 per cent - thought Adelaide had job opportunities, the worst result for a mainland capital city. Just 42 per cent felt Adelaide had a good public transport service and satisfaction with entertainment slipped from 75 per cent to 68 per cent. Residents were dissatisfied overall with the State Government's performance, particularly in terms of property taxes and making housing affordable. 2 - CANBERRA OVERALL Maintains its status as Australia's second most liveable city for the second year running, but housing affordability remains a concern. THE GOOD The ACT did well in several areas including: having a good road network and minimal traffic, being a safe place for people and property and being clean, well-maintained and unpolluted. THE BAD Canberra performed relatively poorly when it came to having a vibrant cultural scene and a good range of quality affordable housing. 3 - MELBOURNE OVERALL It might be one of the world's most liveable among international judges, but Melburnians are less than impressed with their own city. Residents rated Melbourne's liveability down to equal third on a nationwide basis, alongside Perth. THE GOOD Melbourne scored the highest rating of any city for its cultural scene and architecture and also ranked highly for its health care and education services. THE BAD It lost points for traffic congestion, high property prices, general cleanliness and climate. Melburnians also gave the State Government a bare pass, unhappy with its management of urban growth and the imposition of high stamp-duty charges. 3 - PERTH OVERALL It's not perfect, but Perth residents are falling deeper in love with the WA capital. Perth scored 62.1 out of 100 for liveability, up 1.5 points on last year. THE GOOD Sandgropers enjoy Perth's climate, outdoor recreation and natural environment. The city also performed above average in education and health services. And, though adequacy of public transport scored poorly everywhere, Perth topped the list with 49 per cent. THE BAD The cultural and entertainment scene was slammed, ranking equal bottom with Newcastle, Hobart and Darwin. And only half of Perth people agreed that the city had a diverse range of people who got along well, the second lowest result for the country. 5 - BRISBANE OVERALL Not good news for BrisVegas - its residents have ranked it fifth in terms of capital city liveability. THE GOOD Top marks for climate, but the floods of the past year even pushed that score down, from 83 per cent to 77 per cent. Above average for vibrant cultural entertainment, good health care, attractive city design and a lack of pollution. THE BAD Public transport rated above the national average but still only impressed less than half of residents. Fewer than half believed a good standard of living was affordable in Brisbane and just a third said there was quality affordable housing. Only 50 per cent felt Brisbane was a safe place. 8 - HOBART OVERALL A poor eighth place out of 10 cities and a lack of strategic planning has Hobart's future looking bleak. THE GOOD Hobart scored quite highly with its residents for its range of recreational outdoor activities, attractive natural environment, look and design. THE BAD Performed poorly in key areas such as education, health, employment and economic opportunities. The Property Council of Australia's state executive director Mary Massina said Hobart has also missed a chance to grab a fair share of Commonwealth Government funding to fix its future problems. She called the city's submission to the recent Council of Australian Government call for capital city strategic plans as "briefing material, minimal statistical analysis and a set of stated future intentions". 9 - SYDNEY OVERALL Sydneysiders believe their city is more beautiful, entertaining, cleaner and safer than it was 12 months ago. THE GOOD In the Auspoll study, Sydney had the greatest jump in liveability than any other city. It also recorded significant gains in transport and health services. Almost 10 per cent more people said Sydney had good public transport and fewer were dissatisfied with the service. Satisfaction with health services rose from 48 per cent to 60 per cent, while education and recreational facilities had improved. THE BAD Traffic congestion is still a problem, with two-thirds of commuters thinking Sydney's road network needs addressing and just over half saying the State Government was doing a poor or very poor job on keeping up with overall infrastructure. 10 - DARWIN OVERALL Darwin is unaffordable, unsafe and a bad place to be if you are unhealthy, according to its residents. THE GOOD Darwinites were positive about community harmony, with 70 per cent of respondents believing people of diverse cultural backgrounds got on. Residents also thought Darwin had good employment and economic opportunities (77 per cent). THE BAD Apparently the Top End is a tough place to live - Darwin's residents say their city is expensive (78 per cent), unsafe (67 per cent) and does not have good health care (62 per cent). Darwin also ranked lowest in residents' satisfaction with education, with 40 per cent of respondents saying the city does not have good schools or education facilities.
  4. Hi, we are breaking lease on a 2 bedroom house in Pasadena. It is a 5 minute walk to Ayliffes Road/Goodwood Road and to bus stops for G10/20/40, 200 and 300 which take you directly to the city, or up to Marion Centre or Aberfoyle Hub. It is great access to sea or beach, and it is directly opposite the lovely pasadena reserve. The new development at Pasadena is a 5 min walk away with the big Foodland for shopping. We are currenly paying $300 a week rent, and are looking to break the lease start of July (Our lease runs til Jam 2013. We have lived here for almost a year and are only moving as we are buying a house. It is in a lovely area, quiet with really good transport links, with a big front yard and someone cuts the grass included in our rent. Please message me if you are at all interested in this house. It is a bargain for where it is!
  5. Hello, This is my very first post so please be easy on me! Apologies if this is in the wrong place, so here goes... My wife and I have recently started planning a move to Australia, particularly to Adelaide, South Australia. This has come about because my wife, who is a Quality Manager for a Healthcare Recruitment Agency in the UK, came across an advertisement for work as an Office Manager in Adelaide via an Agency based in Australia. The agency would like to put my wife forward for a position where the company would sponsor her. Supposing all goes to plan and she is made an offer I understand I could migrate on my wife's Visa and look for work myself, hopefully securing a position as soon as we arrive. One of the things I'd like to know is, has anyone been in a similar position and found it difficult to find work while on a partners Visa? My worry is that I will find it hard to convince an employer to take on a migrant who has just entered the country on a partners Visa. Bit of background info: I work as an IT Engineer for a large company, mainly in systems/network support, possess a degree, IT Qualifications (Cisco, CompTIA, ITIL) and several years experience if this helps, so wanting a similar position. We don't have children and are not home owners so this is a move we plan for a better quality of life for the both of us. I hope that makes sense; I would very much appreciate anyone's advice. Thanks, Marc
  6. Hello everybody! I hope you're all well. My partner and I will be moving to Brisbane in March and, since neither of us have ever lived their before, we're wondering what to expect and if you lovely people have any recommendations for places to visit/ things to do there? My partner is from Adelaide (born and bred) and I'm from Wales, UK. We don't have any children and are both 28 & 30 (respectively). Any suggestions would be most helpful, and equally if there's anyone moving to Adelaide then feel free to ask for more information; we're happy to help :biggrin:

  15. I'm sorry but come on, does it really matter what the taxi drivers wear, I have never once looked at what a driver may be or may be not wearing and I can't believe that a matter like this has gone to court:wub::no: A TAXI driver has been put on trial in the Adelaide Magistrates Court for allegedly wearing denim jeans on the job. Shahram Forozandeh is being prosecuted by the Transport, Energy and Infrastructure Department over an alleged breach of the state's taxi driver uniform standards. The department claims he wore blue jeans "with orange stitching" but the Passenger Transport Act requires him to wear dress pants. In another case this week, a driver was charged for allegedly obscuring his white dress shirt with a jacket. Yesterday Bill Gonis, manager of public transport for the State Government, said uniforms were an important part of driver compliance. "It's especially important at this time of year that the public has confidence that taxi drivers are properly accredited and professional in the way they present themselves," he said. "Wearing proper uniform is one way to ensure a driver is complying with the regulations." Mr Forozandeh, 44, of Brooklyn Park, has pleaded not guilty to one count of failing to wear a uniform as specified. Giving evidence yesterday, Senior Transport Compliance Safety Officer Larry Cutufia said he issued an on-the-spot fine at Victoria Square on January 20. "I knew they were jeans because of the colour, the material, the studs on the pockets and the predominately orange stitching on the seams," he said. "That's not wearing the proper uniform (of) navy blue, brown or black business-style trousers." Mr Cutufia said Mr Forozandeh claimed his work pants "had been ripped" and declined to step out of the taxi to be photographed. Mr Forozandeh, representing himself, challenged Mr Cutufia's account. "You cautioned me that morning, you did not fine me on the spot ... I did not receive the fine until May," he said. "You cautioned me, I took a fare to Darlington and you decided to fine me after I left." Outside court, Mr Gonis said compliance officers were not required to meet a fines quota.

    Living Costs in Adelaide

    Hi, My partner and I are hoping to move from the UK to Adelaide soon, but for the life of me I cannot find a lot of information on the web about the Living Expense in Adelaide. Can anyone help?:rolleyes:
  25. I thought it was time to give our first update from Australia! Quick recap of our situation: I’m an Aussie and OH is the Brit. I already had a house in Adelaide so we haven’t got much to tell that would be useful in regards to finding accommodation when you first arrive I’m afraid. We flew in last Thursday morning. Soooo glad I used my frequent flyer miles to upgrade the Singapore to Adelaide flight to business class. Being able to use the business class lounge during our 9 hours in Singapore was fantastic (we managed to have a snooze and helped ourselves to the food and drinks) and it certainly was nice to have a seat on the plane that went flat (well, almost flat). We're currently staying with my parents in Port Elliot (coastal town about 1.5 hours drive south of Adelaide) until we're ready to move into my place. So after a couple of days of falling asleep in the middle of the day and waking at strange times we got stuck into the furniture shopping on Sunday. It's a bit of a tough slog as we have to drive into Adelaide each time (not many shops down here and they wouldn't deliver that far away anyhow) to look at places, so we've tried to do a fair bit of research on the internet to narrow things down a bit. Had a very successful day today, having ordered a lounge suite and a bed. Once the bed is available (we've been told 7-10 days) they will both be delivered and we can actually move into the house. Also put a deposit down on a fridge on the weekend and that will hopefully be delivered soon too. I was quite pleased with my bargaining abilities and managed to get the price down on all the items. It's not like the UK where you pay whatever the price tag says. Here it's more of a guideline so if you're prepared to stand your ground (or smile sweetly!) you can often get a better deal. Also stumbled on a home wares sale at the local department store so we grabbed as much as we could carry! OH's also been busy making himself "official", registering for Medicare, tax file number, getting a phone etc. He applied online for a bank account with the NAB before we got here and has a meeting with them on Thursday to pick up his cards. Can’t help much with cost of living information yet as we haven’t had to pay for much of that type of thing while we’re staying with my parents. Will try to provide an update once we’ve moved into our house. Happy to answer any questions though!
