Talking just a little help

Just thought I'd pop in hear now and then to let you know I work in Adelaide as a meet & greet volunteer with "On Arrival Services" for people arriving as new immigants to South Australia and if I can pass on any help I will do so with pleasure. I've lived here 34yrs and was from Leeds originally and came to the best place in the world barn-on. I prefer to chat rather than type as it takes too long giving answers but am prepared to type if I must, so if your thinking of moving give me a buzz. Mal

Thanks Malcy - Heading your way next year. We have friends there who would meet us I'm sure, but nice to meet a greeter anyway.

What is the temporary accommodation option like. Is it in 'nice' area, what options are there over areas (we want to be North Adelaide suburbs up to Gawler. Is it clean, furnished etc.

This would be useful to know, as currently planning to go into B&B or holiday let (probably off season)

Cheers

G'day cinders, i can give you advise on some things but you need to contact immigration on official matters like business visa's my job is to settle people in and then take them to all the government departments to relieve them of the burden of finding them and i'm their to quicken up the proccess of getting them established so they can have a easier ride and maybe a few weeks holiday before starting work, also help them with cars and tv's etc. regards mal.

Where do you get this advice? nobody does anything for nothing here keep dreaming. The best advice you can have is wake up.

have to agree with you Malcy, South Australia is the best place to live, especially if you have kids.

As for temporary accommodation, there are some very nice areas north of the city :

Salisbury Heights
Golden Grove
Craigmore
Gawler East
Willaston

On average, for a three bedroom house you'd be looking at about $125 - $185 per week.

And, remember, totally ignore ANYTHING PB says, he has never actually been to Australia. In fact, he hasn't left his sqalid little bedsit in Toxteth for 17 years as he suffers from debilitating, chronic constipation and erectile dysfunction (didn't you ever wonder why he was so miserable and bitter?).

Shame on you how can you be so awfully horrid about PB. Next you'll be saying, gasp, that he doesn't really even have a pen*s.

PB, Malcy says in the very post at the top of this thread that she's a volunteer. Are you saying she's lying?

I realise that you find it unusually difficult to read, understand or take in things that might conflict with your preconceptions, but do try.
