ADELAIDE BOUND  –  MIGRATING TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Are you migrating to Adelaide, South Australia? Adelaide Bound was launched during our own migration process in 2006. The aim of Adelaide Bound is to provide anybody that is migrating to Adelaide and South Australia an information point. I am not a migration expert in any way and do not endorse or promote any websites featured on Adelaide Bound.

When we first decided to migrate to Adelaide, Australia ourselves we found a lot of hours were spent trying to gain information. Researching the areas and finding information on living in South Australia was extremely time consuming and sometimes frustrating.

It made sense for me (as a web designer) to put together the information I had found at the time. I am hoping that Adelaide Bound will make your life a little easier, and your move to Adelaide a little less stressful. We provide the information you will need for migrating to Adelaide in one, easy to use website, at no cost to you.

We realise what a hard and frustrating journey it can be – from that initial decision to migrate to landing in South Australia.

Moving half way round the world is no easy task. And once you arrive in Adelaide you are faced with a whole new list of things to organise! We have got together with a few experts to provide you with useful tips and advice.

On arrival accommodation is one of the first things to sort out so that you have a base to stay in during those first few weeks. We have sourced different options for short term furnished accomodation, some are run by migrants themselves.

Our Finance pages provide useful information on setting up in Australia. You will find links to opening a migrant banking account from the UK. Also, transferring your money to Australia and what to do on arrival with regards to activating bank accounts. We also provide information on how to obtain your tax file number.

Deciding where to live is a key factor in your new life in Australia. This may be a hard choice and, although it is good to listen to feedback from others, is a decision you will need to make. We have included suburb information and maps to give you an idea of locations. Take a day or two on arrival to drive around the different areas. Use this time to gauge what is going to suit your family needs and your budget. It will also give you an idea of traveling times which may be more, or less, than you thought.

South Australia provides some of Australia’s most affordable housing. Another decision you will make is if you will buy, build or rent. We provide links to information on all three areas of renting, buying and building and the things you will need to know. We have also listed the major utilities suppliers so that you have somewhere to start once you find your home. For many, moving to Australia provides another dream – to have your house built. This is not as complicated as it may seem and we provide links to land, houses and land & house packages from builders.
