I’m new to forums and I don’t have social media! 
my family and I have revived our state sponsorship and are in the process of selling our house.

what advice does anyone have on areas to live in Adelaide?

i have a 8 year old and 4 year old children.

also any help on staying positive and keeping my inpatient devil at bay would also be greatly appreciated 😉

Congratulations on the visa. Im in QLD so cannot help Adelaide sorry but hopefully someone who knows the area will be along soon.

I know when i was migrating realestate.com was a god send for looking at rentals, house prices and the areas they were in so that may be a start if you havent already found it.

Good luck with everything

This is the only website I know that has reviews of Australian suburbs:


Homely also has listings for sale or rent but I find realestate.com.au is better for that. 

Your best bet is to book a holiday let or AirBnB in a central area when you first arrive, and look around.  It's very hard to judge what areas are like before you arrive.  Even if you get recommendations, another person's choice might not suit you.  Nothing beats getting in the car and driving around.

I have recently moved to Adelaide. The area i'm staying in is nice, close to the beach and schools etc. We have friends who live in Hallett Cove, that seems to be popular with expats with children. Have you looked at any areas?
