Someone considering moving to Adelaide should be expecting rainy days during the winter.The weather can be very unreliable for which you should be carrying an umbrella with you. There are very few people walking on the road in most parts of Adelaide. Another thing that could be bothering is finding casual jobs in this place.

Adelaide is a thriving and cosmopolitan city, with dining and entertainment a key attraction to both residents and visitors. The weather is often sunny, with cooler temperatures during winter. A safe and clean environment, Adelaide is the perfect location for families to raise children and enjoy a peaceful life.

Adelaide is a small city that is very much like a country town; everybody knows each other. We say, instead of six degrees of separation, Adelaideans have only two. There are also a handful of (wealthy) families who have 100s of years of heritage here, who have a lot of influence.

Someone moving to Adelaide would be happy to know how safe and happy the city is. People are friendly and helpful, and the nature is just breathtaking. However, know how cold it get during winter, we have some really frosty and foggy evenings, and how hot summers can get, sunscreen is a must every single day as the UV index is usually quite high.

Adelaide is in the state of South Australia, which as its name suggests is in the South of Australia. The climate is very dry, thus visitors should consider moisturising daily. Due to the city’s relative proximity to the depleted ozone layer, sunscreen must be applied prior to exposure to the sun.

Adelaide is flat, therefore bike riding is a great and ethical way to explore. The climate and coastal environment provides some of the best produce in the world; many of our local restaurants showcase this brilliantly.

Adelaide, South Australia, is one of the most liveable cities in the world. It is cheaper than most other capital cities in Australia, yet has superior dining and entertainment options. The state is often called the “Festival State” because of its renowned arts, music, and literary events.

Adelaide is not a bustling hive of activity. Most people who visit the city tend to have family residing in the suburbs. There are few tourist attractions. However, the countryside is pretty and the weather is sublime with clear seasonal changes. Whilst summers can be hot and dry, the days during spring and autumn are spectacular with bright blue skies and warm temperatures.

If you move to Adelaide, take a trip to the Barossa Valley for wine tasting. You will find a different range of paired wine tasting. My favourite is chocolate and wine tasting, there is so much to choose from. Autumn is the right time.
