Are you planning to move to Adelaide? We regularly feature city spotlights here on our blog and we have featured Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia  before, but since that was almost three years, ago, it is time to revisit what it’s like to live in Adelaide, South Australia.  As we mentioned, Adelaide is the capital of South Australia and it has a population over 1.3 million. This city has the most centralised population of any other state because more than 75 per cent of South Australians live in Adelaide. Adelaide is a planned city with five squares arranged in a grid with the Adelaide city centre in the middle with a ring of parks called the Adelaide Parklands. There is a great deal of variety with the beaches, the city, and the Adelaide Hills all nearby, residents can experience a lot of variety close to the city. Most of the homes in Adelaide are single-storey detached homes built on 1,000 square metre blocks with a wide variety of styles. Adelaide is considered a “20 minute city”, which means that you can reach any destination in the city from another destination within 20 minutes. Continue reading

Perth is one of the fastest growing cities in Australia. It is the capital of Western Australia and also the largest city in Western Australia. We have featured it quite a bit on our blog, but we thought it was time to revisit a post all about moving to Perth. Our last Perth City Spotlight  post was back in August of 2014. Perth was founded in 1829 and was named as an official city in 1856. The city is situated on the Swan River and the east side of the city is bordered by a low escarpment known as the Darling Scarp. Much of the city was built on Wetlands and the Indian Ocean is off the coast to the east. Although Perth is one of the fastest growing cities, much of the land surrounding Perth has been protected with National Park or Nature Reserve status to maintain the conservation of the land, forest, and cave systems nearby. In fact, Perth is surrounded by a total of 15 national parks, 7 regional parks, 3 marine parks, and 3 nature reserves. If you are moving to Perth for work, it is likely in the mining, oil, or gas industry. There is a high demand for I.T, medical professionals, and jobs in the financial industry. Tourism is also very important for Perth. Tourist attractions include the city centre, Fremantle, the coast, and the Swan River. Continue reading
