The moving process within a city is notoriously stressful. Moving from one state to another can be even more so. There are so many companies and different options for different budgets and looking into it can be overwhelming and expensive.
VMove is a moving company that can make interstate removals as straightforward and cost-competitive as possible. Our interstate removals service provides excellent, personalized care of your belongings to give you peace of mind.
Our moving services provide packing materials, furniture moving protection, and storage facilities. Our movers and packers will make sure the moving process goes smoothly by helping you organize your life into the back of our truck.
VMove is a removals company dedicated to excellent customer service and expert furniture removals. We can highly recommend storage solutions for interstate moves, such as Sydney to Adelaide, so moving house and moving interstate doesn’t have to be done all at once.
We want you to save money and get the most out of what you spend on interstate removalists. As we are a smaller company, we don’t yet transport Australia wide. Bigger companies can offer you more destinations with what is called “backloading” on their fleet of trucks or on train containers.
But if you want a tailor-made moving experience, knowing that your belongings are all moving in the same direction with the same team that put them on the truck, get in contact with VMove and get a quote for your interstate move. Our team will put back the furniture they picked up on the other side.
Sydney to Adelaide: Across Mountains, Deserts, Riverland & Vineyards
Sydney is Australia’s most famous city. Centred around the beautiful Sydney Harbour and Parramatta River, Sydney’s suburbs hug the shoreline jostling for water views and access to beaches and parks. Inland, Sydney is a celebration of Australia’s multicultural history, all shaded by the subtropical trees that grow along every street.
Sydney is a city that has many faces. It’s well known as the city of villages, each suburb bringing a charm and character unique to the next one over. One visit to Sydney will never reveal all its hidden gems and multiple personalities.
Although notorious for high rental prices, fortunately Sydney offers everything from high end to budget-friendly in terms of food and entertainment. A vast array of international cuisine made by old and new migrants comes at all price points, and bars, clubs and recreational activities come in every style to suit every budget.
What Sydney does better than most other cities around the world is offer easy escape from the city right inside it. Home to many green and abundant parks, no matter where you live in Sydney you can find a shady spot to relax, spot wildlife, or have a picnic. The city is also bordered by national parks for the more adventurous: to the north Ku-ring-gai Chase, the Royal to the south, and to the west the Blue Mountains.
Adelaide is over fifteen hours drive away from Sydney. To get there, the quickest way is to take the Hume Highway towards Wagga Wagga. This takes you over the Great Dividing Range and into the fertile Southern Tablelands. Keep heading west and you’ll find yourself on the Hay Plain travelling along the Sturt Highway.
The Hay Plains were once a vast lakebed and is now a flat expanse of bushland that drivers either love for its infinite horizons or hate for its tediousness. We recommend choosing an epic audiobook to listen to while crossing the plains and soak up one of the biggest skies you’ll see anywhere on Earth.
Continue heading west through the state of Victoria and on through the Riverland area of South Australia, an area renowned for its citrus, stone fruit and almonds, as well as being the largest wine-producing area of the country. Just to the south of the Riverland is perhaps Australia’s most famous wine region, The Barossa Valley.
Head further south of the Barossa and you will enter Adelaide, the capital of South Australia. Compared to Sydney, Adelaide is much more modest in size, but no less diverse. It can be known as sleepier than cities on the east coast, but residents will tell you that just adds to the quality of the lifestyle.
Adelaide is a twenty-minute city. You can drive from the 80 kilometre stretch of sandy beaches to the city centre in twenty minutes. From there, you can drive to the Adelaide Hills in another twenty.
The Adelaide Hills are a slice of paradise so close to the city centre. You can hike, visit wildlife parks, pick your own berries, cherries, apples, and other fruits, go on wine tours, or just book a restaurant that showcases the local produce. With little villages dotted about in valleys and ridges, there’s so much to explore it will take you days.
Adelaide CBD is where most of the action takes place, with the city’s major arts and sporting venues, museums and art galleries, and restaurant and nightlife establishments. Set along the picturesque Torrens River, and surrounded by parklands, the centre of Adelaide is a pleasant place to walk around for a whole day.
No trip to Adelaide is complete without visiting the Central Markets. Right in the middle of the city next to Tarntanyangga/Victoria Square is one of the country’s biggest undercover markets, selling a wide array of fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and other produce, as well as specialty treats and multicultural dishes.
The Central Markets sits between two of Adelaide’s eat streets, Gouger and Grote, and is right next to Chinatown. Other streets famous for their restaurant choices include Hutt and Rundle Streets, as well as East Terrace and Hindley. Dotted around the city centre are welcoming old-style Aussie pubs without the flashing lights of poker machines.
Day trips are easy from Adelaide, and one of the more spectacular driving holidays is around the Fleurieu Peninsula just south of the city. Beautiful seaside cliffs and rolling hills covered in vineyards evokes the Mediterranean coast. Stunning at any time of the year.
Adelaide Airport is an easy 10 minutes from the city centre.
If you are moving with your furry children, arrange pet transport well in advance. Also, if you are driving across with pets, make sure you have plenty of water for them in the car.
