I went this route for installation of PostgreSQL and PostGIS:
- PostgreSQL using the standalone KyngChaos,
- PostGIS install from KyngChaos as well...
- pgAdmin3 from PostgreSQL Tools
Now when I launch pgAdmin and try to create a new PostGIS database, there is no template_postgis for use in Template.
I have tried going another route, that is downloading the PostgreSQL package directly from PostgreSQL. This instals the server and allows you to use the StackBuilder to download and install PostGIS. This doesn't fix my problem.
