Hi everyone, my husband and I are planning to move to Adelaide in late November 2017 under the skilled migration programme. We don’t have a job yet and don’t know the place very well. Hence, would like to get your advice specially on the accommodation; Is it better to stay in a hotel in the city for initial week or so and look for long term accommodation or is it better to look for a long term accommodation before moving there? Also, please recommend places close to Adelaide CBD, may be within 5 Km range with free tram services and best suited for us as new comers. Thanks in advance for valuable thoughts and any other tips in general. Have a great week ahead.

Speaking as a Adelaide local It might be easier to look for long term rental accommodation before you come as it can take a couple of weeks to find a place, apply and be approved which will end up being quite costly in a hotel. It really depends on your budget, what type of accommodation you are looking for and how much you want to spend on rent. You maybe able to afford to live directly in the city, or in North Adelaide. Otherwise 5km from city you have and Thebarton which is quite nice, lots of town houses and markets. Norwood and walkerville are very nice and a great suburb too but there are no trams out that way. However as long as your in a “go” zone it means there is a bus every 15mins Monday to Friday.

Hi Inboxed some info. Please go thru and have an idea.

This is an easy place to live, most suburbs surround the city, driving is pretty easy and cars are quite cheap, the tram only runs across the Southern and south western suburbs, most Sri Lankans live in the eastern and north eastern suburbs such as Campbelltown, Magill, paradise, modbury, linden Park. Look out for this page as houses are advertised by the Sri Lanka n house owners and people breaking leases.
Public transport is pretty decent with buses every 15 minutes in go zones. There’s an express busway (Obahn) to the city connecting most of the bus interchanges north of the city. Quite an easy place to live and commute, job market is a bit hard but all depends on the industry or specialization. If you have a PR visa finding the first job wouldn’t be too hard. Regarding accommodation look out for private advertisers who are more flexible with new arrivals than real estate agents. If you are planning on temporary arrangements look out for self service apartments or Holiday homes, can tend a bit expensive but look out for deals, we got a good deal with breakfree directors studio.
