    What area in Adelaide were you thinking about?

    I'd like some advice on that too - my son is 15 and is in Year 10 here. We are looking at the Glenelg, Unley or Norwood areas. Are they good places to live?

    Yes they are some of the best areas to live in Adelaide. Unley is an old area close to the city (2kms south), with lots of big old genlemen style houses on quite large blocks of land. This is quite expensive to buy around $700,000 +. Norwood is also close to the city (east) (and expensive) with lots of old cottage style housing and units. Norwood Parade is the main shopping street with lots of trendy cafes. Glenelg is about 8 kms west of the city and it is a beachside suburb. The closer to the beach, the more expensive the housing. There has been a number of high rise apartments built near the beach in the last ten years. The main street, Jetty Road is very popular on weekends(even more when the weather is hot), with lots of outdoor cafes. The beach and jetty are also drawcards.

     

    As far as schools go, one of the best academic state schools is Marryatville High, which is on Kensington Road. It is in a good area surrounded by private schools. Maybe this is why it is better than other state schools. In the Glenelg area, Brighton High has a pretty good reputation, especially for music. Unley High School has an OK reputation. In these three areas, there are a number of very good private schools, ranging in price. If you want to know more about these, let me know.

    Hi Helen,

     

    I've just seen your advise on schools and would welcome your thoughts on two schools. Our son is in year 8 and we have the option of two schools for him St. Peters College and Marryatville, please can you advise as we know very little about either

        My husband has the opportunity to get a job in Sydney and i always said it was the one place i would go... so here we are considering shipping our little family early next year which is rather daunting. My son is 3 (29th May 2014) so i presume he won't be starting school for a while which seems odd as he seems school ready here but that might just be because of the nursery/pre-school he is at here. And my daughter currently does 2 days at a nursery. We're thinking we'll live there for a few years and then return to the UK but i worry about my son being behind in terms of education when we come back because of starting school so much later in Oz. Has anyone found this? and when would he actually start school? I presume we're not entitled to any sort of funding like you get in the UK with the 15 hours. Is there the opportunity for them both to do morning child care on a few days a week? We're look at living in the suburbs around Manly which i presume we need to secure first before even looking at child care places. Thank you for any advice - feeling totally clueless and rather daunted by the prospect!

        Hi All,
        We have just filed for 489 Visa, South Australia On Sept 4, 2017 with 75 points. (Management Consultant Job Code) We are done with our medicals and getting PCC on coming Friday. Any idea about the existing timelines for CO to be assigned. And visa grant timeline? Thanks in advance. Also, I would like to connect with any members on the forum who are already in Adelaide for clarity on certain things like expenses, jobs etc.

        Hello everyone, my name is Andreas and this next november-december I am going to travel to Australia. My problem is I do not know where to go. 
        I studied something related with construction and my experience in that area in my opinion is medium. Where I do not have experience is in english language. I have to say that will be a big problem for me at the beginning but I am sure I will solve it quickly because I love english. 
        I am under 30 years old, I like big cities but does not necessary have to be Sydney or Melbourne, I think small city (1M people) can be better to find a room and know the differences little by little between my country and your country. I looked for information about Perth, Adelaide and Canberra. At the end, all the information I have found about them is: it is okay but they are not Sydney or Melbourne... 
        During my Visa time I can move around the country as much as I want, so I prefer arrive in a small city, spend there (2,3,6... months) to speak and understand your language better than the first day and then if I have a good feeling move to Sydney (for example). What is your opinion about my idea? During that first stage I assume I will work in unskilled work, but it is okay for me.
        Now knowing my profile which of those cities I told you before would you live in?
         
        Thank you for your time, sorry for my write mistakes I thank you for your help.

        We're looking to settle in Hervey Bay. Originally being from Brisbane I can't envisage us living back in a big city.  Does anyone have any links with HB and know if it would be well suited for a family of four with their children of Primary school age.  What is the employment scenario like there? I've looked online and that's been helpful but I was hoping some of you would be able to give their insight.  
         
        Are there any areas around HB (Not Maryborough) that you think is worth checking out? Keen to go anywhere from Bribie Island area right up towards Bundy but not quite as far as that! HB preferable.

        Hi, I moved to Sydney (from London) 13 years ago and have finally had enough of the rat race.
        I'm moving with my family to the Sunshine Coast and looking for advice about the best locations for beaches, shops, schools etc
        My 2 boys have special needs and one will need to go to a special school - it appears that Nambour and Currimundi are the only options.
        My other boy has mild autism so I'm hoping to find a location that is best placed for him i.e. Primary schools that have a good reputation for helping kids on the spectrum and plenty of local therapists.
        If you have kids with special needs and live in the Sunshine Coast, I'd love to hear your thoughts and advice on our move to the Sunny Coast.
        Thanks
        Sue
