Moving to Adelaide, South Australia
Adelaide, South Australia, Australia is well serviced with a range of publications that provide extensive information about what to do and see and how to settle here.
1. Moving to Adelaide South Australia websites and publications
The Australian Government's Welcome to South Australia Kit is an online booklet of information for settling in South Australia (also available in other languages). Study in Australia is an Australian Government website for international students.
Adelaide City Council is the local council website for the City of Adelaide. The City of Adelaide website has information about What's On, Recreation and Attractions in and around the City of Adelaide.
Your Sea Change (or Tree Change) is an interesting website offering various information on moving to a regional area of Australia with some useful articles on the decision making process of moving.
2. Local informationTo find local information, when you type in a search query into your internet search engine, include the words
Universities in Australia specialise in different fields of knowledge and you may be able to approach a particular department for some local information. You can find a list of all Australian universities at The Good Guides.
3. Government information
Make sure you find the relevant Federal (Australian) Government Department related to your areas of interest - connect to these via a key word search at the Australian Government Directory or the General Australian Government Portal.
You need to source information in your local community via the relevant Local Government Council related to where you are living (and you can also do this for the area where you are working) through the Local Government Association of South Australia.
4. Ask questions
When you have spent enough time in front of your computer, the other option is to ask questions - talk to your neighbours, work colleagues and people that you meet and ask them where they find information. They may also be able to help you directly with an answer to your questions. In Australia, it is perfectly acceptable to ask questions and seek information.
You may also like to consider paying for some professional advice - like a home buyer's agent or a relocation service provider, just as you would for any other activity that could be improved with expert advice (like an accountant, doctor or dentist). Some people save cents and waste dollars (and a lot of time) by thinking they can do everything themselves.
5. Radio, Television, Print and Online Broadcasters
For general information, you may find it useful to listen to the radio, watch television and read daily or weekly newspapers. You can source details of these resources in the Yellow Pages Telephone Book or True Local website. In particular, if you speak a language other than English, find out what programs and publications are available in your first language.
