  2. ADELAIDE has been judged Australia's most liveable capital city and Sydney the least. That's the finding of a Productivity Commission report comparing the planning and zoning systems across all state and territory jurisdictions. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/housing-traffic-make-adelaide-australias-most-liveable-city/story-fn59niix-1226057058581
  3. Hi Everybody, I am curretnly completing a HETAC level 7 degree in Counselling in Ireland. I wish to emmigrrate to Adelaide in 2012 to live and work with my husband. I would like to work in a community setting as this is my background, ie health centres, schools, citizens advice, support centres etc. I would also like to practice privately and take on a few of my own clients. I have not yet specialised in any one area but I am interested in youth work, trauma therapy life couching, CBT, PCA etc. Level 7 degree is the equivilant of a pass degree internationally. Does anybody know what level of education you need to practice in the above jobs in Auzz? I wish to further my career in Adelaide, any suggestions re courses? I suppose one of the most important concerns for me is which accredation body to choose.....any suggestions. Thanks for reading Ciara:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Planning a move to Adelaide?

    We currently rent a two bedroom townhouse in the Western suburbs of Adelaide, but we need to return to UK in July and will have to break our lease. We just wondered if anyone was planning moving out here at that time and would like the details? It would be good if we could marry someone up with our agents. We are very lucky we have a great landlord and a great agent, rent is very reasonable for the area, which is quiet and leafy, and close to all amenties, beach, shops,schools etc. Public transport links very good as well.We also have good neighbours. Suitable for a couple or family with one child. If you are interested let me know and I will pm you.

We are just waiting on his skills assesment to come back to apply for our perm visa. He is an IT Manager and Adelaide seems to be where the jobs are for this type of work. I am currently completing my degree in Counselling and I am hoping to get some work using this degree over there. Does anybody know anything about practicing in OZ? Which are the best accreditation body? What level of ed do oyu need to work for EAPs etc. Any tips on visa application? I have been looking at some of the Adelaide threads and they look great. Any tips on where to look for accommadation etc.? Look forward to chatting to you all. Nervous and Excited Ciara:yes:

Have been reading the notes on the web page and nobody seems to be talking about Adelaide(or am I looking in the wrong place or is it that bad!?) Has anybody got some good info on the areas, schools etc? Also is there a main Hyundia dealer within the area as this is the dealership I have been working for the last 5yrs? Hoping to hear from anybody that can help. Tony Ps Should we be looking somewhere else like maybe Perth???

    Adelaide here we come!

    Well today's the day!!! The past 10 days have been a whirlwind of goodbyes, packing, farewells, lunches, dinners, drinks, nerves, excitement, tears, laughter and fun and tonight we fly out to our new life together in Oz. We've been dreaming of this day for so long now that i still can't quite believe it's here! [raises a glass].... Adelaide here we come!
  12. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone could recommend a cheaply priced interstate removalist? We are looking to return to Brisbane from Adelaide ASAP. Thanks, Tanya:biggrin:
  13. Title says it all really. I have always been set on Melbourne when we emigrate and have done 2 x reccies and been very comfortable there. However, I know it sounds shallow but the summer they have endured has made me think twice as I can't wait to escape UK weather. I had always assumed that Adelaide was really too hot for us, but looking at the stats, it doesn't seem bad. Also, Adelaide has featured on WDU so much this series, and looked really nice, it's just got me wondering. Any thoughts please.
  14. We've just come back for a bit of a drive down through Adelaide and the esplenade / beachfront areas. Here are a few pics for you Jim. It's a public holiday so the beaches are packed............ errr. Looking north over from Kingston Park over Seacliff,Brighton and up to Glenelg. Henley Beach looking north. Henley Beach looking south.

    HMAS Adelaide scuttled

    Today the navy (or someone) blew up HMAS Adelaide to scuttle it. It was sunk off North Avoca Beach in NSW. Everyone seems to have been excited by this. I reckon this is just littering on a huge scale. Are our oceans now a dumping ground for old ships that we can't be bothered disposing of properly ?
  16. Hi all. Just signed up with the hope of finding some friendly people in and around Adelaide to get to know them and stuff over the internet to meet up when I'm over there... have some drinks, and do whatever you do over there! I'm staying in Glenelg for the first 6 months or so as I have a job around that area which is why I'm coming over in the first place! I'm 20, very friendly, down to earth, easy to get along with, love the outdoors and I'm a professional Arborist here in the UK. I play drums, piano and didgeridoo. Hope to speak to you soon, Harrison
  17. Can anyone recommed anyone for Short term rentals in Adelaide Fully furnished. It must be at least 3 bedrooms, 2 with double beds and another suitable for 2 kids. We are looking to rent from mid September. Thanks:biggrin:
  18. Just in need of some friendly and expert advice from any MH nurses in Adelaide. We look as if we are about to be granted our visas pretty soon. I am training to be a RMH, due to qualify 2013 and will look to move to Oz probably 2014 after gaining 12 months experience in the UK (pay wise is it best to do 12 months to gain extra experience in UK, or if we move to Oz will I have to do post grad?) I would like to know what the job situation is like in Adelaide for MH nursing, predominantly interested in acute adult wards. what the rate of pay can be expected to start on, and how it progresses, how does work on acute wards in Oz compare to that of the UK? Any links to check out in SA? Just need to see what the demand, pay, etc is like to gain big picture of work vs the UK as I know that jobs in MH aren't that easy to come by in the UK now. Thanks in advance for any advice M x :unsure:

    Adelaide to Melbourne

    Hi Has anyone made the move to Melbourne from Adelaide? If so why and was it what you expected? We feel we have more job opportunities in Melbourne but I read somewhere that parents tend to be pushy and not so laid back as Adelaide (more of a defined class system) is this true ? :idea:

    Hey Guys, Can somebody out there help me decide which is the best place to settle with 3 kids in both Sydney and Adelaide. We are not sure which place my prospective sponsorship opportunities will take us as a family,however, I won't to ensure we do our homework prior to obtaining out 457 Visa. I have heard Sydney is equivalent to London in terms of rental costs....not sure about Adelaide. Please help!!! Thanks Carlinko & Family
