Railway is back on track after iconic restoration

Gambling: the silent epidemic

THE historic Zig Zag Railway has returned to life as passenger services resumed following a joint volunteer and NSW Government effort to restore the Blue Mountains icon from fire and flood damage. For years, volunteers have toiled to restore the railway and the NSW Government provided more than $5.9M through Crown Lands and the Department of Regional NSW to rebuild the locomotive workshop, construct a car park, pedestrian crossing and amenities block. Zig Zag Railway also rebuilt its safety management system, network rules, procedures and rail policies after a decade out of operation. More: page 9.

Losses of $862M in six months

ASILENT epidemic is wreaking havoc amongst the population of Western Sydney – and it is not COVID.

The new addiction is gambling and it is destroying families and putting young children at risk according to a new report.

As a product gambling is portrayed as an exciting and glamorous pastime in today’s multimedia society, but this image couldn’t be further from the truth.

And despite only containing 52% of Sydney’s population, Western Sydney endures 63% of electronic gaming machine losses.

The report was released by the Centre for Western Sydney and makes fascinating reading.

For example:

ƒ The impact is significantly higher in the inner ring of Western Sydney. Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Cumberland account for a third of Sydney’s losses.

ƒ There is not a singular factor driving the extraordinarily high rates of losses and gambling related harm in Western Sydney, rather, there is a confluence of intersecting factors.

ƒ Gambling related-harm cannot be addressed by the community alone. It will take a concerted effort from gov-

ernment and industry stakeholders to make a meaningful impact.

ƒ There is a clear economic benefit to addressing gambling-related harm in communities, as well as the associated health and wellbeing outcomes that would be achieved.

ƒ Gambling-related harm emerged as a key issue in the lead-up to the 2023 state election, with the public monitoring the policy positions of both sides.

“Western Sydney sustained 63% of Sydney’s gambling losses through electronic gaming machines, despite only having 52% of its population,” manager Tom Nance said.

Mr Nance is the Manager, Strategy and Delivery with Western Sydney University. He is a leading contributor to the Centre for Western Sydney’s research, partnership

and activation platforms, shaping regional narrative and conversation in a way that prioritises equity and opportunity.

“We really need to tackle the location of electronic gaming machines and how this drives the silent epidemic of gambling-related harm within Western Sydney,” he said in an ABC interview.

A high percentage of losses are sustained in a small number of places, like Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown and Cumberland local government areas (LGAs) which have more than 11,200 poky machines combined.

People in the three LGAs lost a record $862M in the first six months of 2022 – a third of Greater Sydney’s $2.5B in losses.

“It’s not surprising that, when there’s a casino on every corner, that people are

more likely to experience gambling-related harm,” Mr Nance said.

But change won’t come easy, with the state government receiving billions every year in tax revenue from gambling.

ClubsNSW told the ABC it was “committed to reducing the incidence of gambling-related harm”, as evidenced through its new Gaming Code of Practice.

It said its 69 clubs in Fairfield, Canterbury-Bankstown, and Cumberland LGAs generate $300M in both state government taxes and ClubGrants tax rebates.

As politicians debate their next move, community groups in Western Sydney are fighting gambling addiction on the ground.

Nathan Peterson runs Gamblers Anonymous meetings in Liverpool, a place where people can seek help with “no judgement”.

“When people arrive here, they’re generally very, very broken,” Mr Peterson said told the ABC.

“Within driving distance of this room... there would be somewhere in the realm of 2000 to 3000 poker machines.”

Libraries offer sensory programs

FOUR-year-old Maggie from Baulkham Hills is among the first little residents to benefit from a new sensory program offered by The Hills Shire Library Service.

Sensitive Storytime is a specialised class designed for neurodivergent children aged 0-5 years, held at Castle Hill Library on a Tuesday.

The unique storytime session offers a sensory-rich experience through a combination of songs, stories, dance and interactive activities. The class is held in a small and intimate setting, with approximately 10 attendees, along with their families and caregivers.

Maggie’s mother, Renee Herman, said neurodivergent-friendly spaces were essential in allowing all children to experience the benefits of public places like libraries.

“Maggie looks forward to Sensitive

Storytime every single week. It provides a safe and affirming space for her to be herself as she enjoys literature and

authentic social experiences,” she said.

Baulkham Hills Library also offers a Sensitive Library to provide a quiet

environment for library members with hypersensitive needs from 9.30am –10am on Wednesdays.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Peter Gangemi said he was proud Council’s libraries were providing sensory programs.

“It is important that everyone is able to participate in our community spaces, facilities and programs,” he said.

“Libraries are central to education, entertainment and social interaction, and we want to ensure that everyone can benefit.

“I am proud that Council is supporting our neurodiverse community with this wonderful initiative.”

Bookings are essential for both Sensitive Library and Sensitive Storytime.

Dialogue calls for housing relief

THE Housing Australia Future Fund Bill is crucial to address the escalating housing crisis in Western Sydney region according to a leading advocate group.

The Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue has called on Prime Minister Anthony Albanese to take responsibility and

engage in Senate negotiations to pass the Bill.

Chairman Christopher Brown said the region’s most vulnerable individuals were being pushed towards homelessness due to historically high levels of housing stress and rising rents

Mr Brown urged the Prime Minister to use his parliamenta-

ry negotiation experience and authority to swiftly resolve the deadlock and ensure the government’s housing reform package was implemented.

While acknowledging that housing stress is not exclusive to the West, Mr Brown stressed the region bore a disproportionate burden due to population growth.

Council in life saving campaign

DID you know that an old, unused mobile phone can save the life of someone trying to escape domestic violence?

There are currently more than two million vic tims of domestic violence* in Australia and Penrith City Council is calling on the community to help make a difference.

Council is urging residents and staff members to drop off any unwanted phones and chargers in collection boxes set up at various locations across Penrith.

These will be donated to DV Safe Phone, a registered charity dedicated to providing a lifeline for those dealing with domestic violence.

The phones will be refurbished and distributed to government agencies and support services that gift them to victims.

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen encouraged residents to donate a device as there are vulnerable, unsafe community members who need urgent access to support.

“There were 1,077 reported instances of domestic violence in the Penrith Local Government Filled with old technology

Area in 2022 alone which proves domestic and family violence does not discriminate and the issue is impacting our community,” Cr Hitchen said.

“We all have a drawer at home filled with old technology – that unused phone might be what your friend, relative or neighbour needs to call emergency services or a support network when they plan to escape domestic violence,” she said.

Penrith City Council endorses a zero-tolerance approach to any form of violence, bullying or harassment in or outside the organisation.

As an accredited and practicsing White Ribbon Workplace that supports gender equality and champions a culture of respect, Council’s policy incorporates Domestic Violence Leave to support staff.

Earlier in May, which is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month, Penrith’s Mayoral Charity Ball raised $60,000 for The Haven – Nepean Women’s Shelter.

DV Safe Phone CEO Ashton Wood said Penrith is one of the first councils in the state to be supporting the organisation’s work, which has seen more than 5,000 phones delivered to domestic violence victims in three years.

Aerotropolis contributions plan endorsed

AT a recent meeting Penrith City Council endorsed the draft Aerotropolis Development Contributions Plan to provide much-needed local infrastructure within the emerging Aerotropolis precinct.

The draft contributions plan seeks to deliver $815M in local infrastructure by apportioning a contributions

rate of 5.5% within the Penrith Local Government Area for development within the Aerotropolis precinct.

This will deliver the roads, bridges, active transport connections, open spaces and embellishments identified in the Aerotropolis planning package.

Both Penrith and Liverpool Councils exhibited in November

2020 with a joint plan at a rate of 6.5% based on land use and builtform assumptions to give the development industry certainty and an indication of the contributions plan for the Aerotropolis precinct.

Since then the planning framework for the Western Sydney Aerotropolis has been finalised, providing clarity

around land use planning and infrastructure outcomes.

As a result, the total cost of local infrastructure to meet the needs of the Aerotropolis for both Penrith and Liverpool Councils is estimated at $2.8B. Council’s draft Aerotropolis Contributions Plan will be on exhibition from mid-June 2023.

THE massive impact of the pandemic on Australians and their finances is graphically captured in the fact that 17.000 complaints were made to the Ombudsman.

The figures have just been released by the Australian Financial Complaints Authority after the World Health Organisation declared an end to the global health emergency.

Consumers file thousands of complaints about the impact of the pandemic on their banking, insurance and other financial service.

And they were successful in some cases, receiving compensation or refunds totalling $21.6M as a result.

The WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic on March 12, 2022. Three years later, it declared the “global emergency” phase of the pandemic over on May 6 this year.

AFCA’s data shows that during the three years. the Ombudsman service registered 17,403 COVID-related complaints about financial products or services. That was seven per cent of all the complaints AFCA received over that period.

Some 4368 COVID-related disputes – or one in four – involved the way a firm responded to a customer’s financial difficulty.

AFCA’s Chief Ombudsman and Chief Executive Officer David Locke said the lockdowns and the impact

on incomes meant the pandemic was a difficult time financially for many people but he was grateful complaint numbers were not even higher.

“While not seeking to downplay what people went through – every complaint matters – we received far fewer COVID-related complaints than we thought might arise from the pandemic,” Mr Locke said.

“Banks, for example, were generally quick to respond, providing emergency support as they handled an unprecedented volume of requests for repayment deferrals.

“It shows what’s possible when firms and consumers talk to each other. We hope financial firms have a similar mindset as we face new challenges amid rising interest rates and cost of living pressures.”

Among the COVID-related disputes, travel insurance was the most complained about product, with 3859 complaints. These disputes were largely about denied or delayed insurance claims after travel plans were disrupted by pandemic lockdowns.

There were 1427 COVID-related complaints regarding superannuation, after the Federal Government decided to allow people to apply for the early release of up to $10,000 in super if they were struggling during lockdowns.

Small businesses accounted for nine per cent of COVID-related complaints, though they usually represent about five per cent of all AFCA complaints. Of the 1594 small business complaints, 781 were related to business loans, and 360 were about business interruption insurance.

AFCA has resolved 975 of all COVID-related complaints so far – in the vast majority of cases by helping complainants and financial firms reach agreement. Overall, 795 of cases have been resolved by agreement or in favor of the complainant.

• Credit 8462 (48% of COVID-related complaints).

• General insurance 5236 (30%).

• Superannuation 1427 (8%).

• Deposit taking 1050 (6%).

• Payment systems 668 (4%).

• Investments 438 (3%)

• Life insurance 154 (0.9%).

IT is easy to form the view that banks and lending institutions are buzzing all over you like flies when your business is going well and disappear completely when things turn a little cold.

Once the bastions of our local communities, banks have plunged in the public estimation as at they closed local branches and disappeared behind a wall of technology.

And while it may sound like good news that the value of loans made to thriving small and medium businesses have been increasing in recent years, new data reveals that there is an alarming number of SMEs left with no financial lifeline at all.

The Australian Bureau for Statistics and the ABA’s latest revelation hammers home the point, showing a decline value of small business loans from $4.81Bin June 2021 to $$4.79B in June 2022. And this year is predicted to be worse.

Australian banks have been quick to blame the low demand for finance from SMEs as the root cause, yet recent data paints a different picture altogether, with a staggering 50% of SMEs reporting to face daunting obstacles when attempting to access business loans from banks.

The figures have been revealed in a new survey of an independent panel of

respondents commissioned by business loan comparison site Small Business Loans Australia.

The respondents were 210 business owners or senior decision-makers across the full SME spectrum: micro of 1-10 employees, small of 11-50 employees and medium-sized of 51-200 employees, as well as a small percentage of larger businesses with more than 200 employees.

SMEs lack confidence

A considerable portion of SMEs have financing plans this year and significantly more SMEs are turning to secured financing at 75% over unsecured options at 50%. Although 40% of SMEs sought funding from banks last year, the research shows that half faced obstacles during the process, including excessive timeframes for loan approval of 19%), difficulty obtaining a favorable interest rate at 17 %, and inability to provide required property or personal assets as security 15%.

Since 2020, businesses have also faced significant constraints on accessing credit. Banks attribute this to the challenge of applying stringent lending standards, particularly for SMEs and 17% of survey respondents found it created additional difficulties to their loan applications.

Despite an increase in negative perceptions about accessing finance between 2014 and 2016, Australian small busi-

nesses’ perception of accessing finance has remained consistently low since the financial crisis, with a decline starting before the COVID outbreak.

In the “Small business access to finance: The evolving lending market”, research commissioned by the Australian Government into the SME lending sector, highlighted a net negative perception from SMEs regarding their ability to access finance.

Their concerns hold merit as small businesses have a relatively higher risk and are approximately three times more likely to default on a loan than their larger counterparts.

However, loan approval figures that show around 75 % of all small business loans are approved in Australia.

Amid the prevailing economic conditions, numerous SMEs will find themselves dependent on business lending as their cash flow diminishes. Small Business Loans Australia found that the most pressing concern among SME directors was the rapid increase in inflation, which is closely associated with rising interest rates and reduced consumer spending.

Approximately 11% of respondents also expressed concerns about their existing loan obligations, while a significant 76% of respondents believed that surging interest rates and inflation would have an impact on their cash flow.

Among the challenges anticipated, 30% expected difficulties in collecting customer payments, 26% cent anticipated struggles in attracting sales and 20% believed that both factors would affect their cash flow.

The survey also revealed that micro-businesses, with 10 or fewer employees, were the least likely to consider applying for a business loan as a solution to their cash flow issues, with only 32% expressing such intention. In contrast, 66% of larger SMEs of 51-200 employees and 75% of small SMEs of 11-50 employees would consider seeking finance to address cashflow issues.

Founder and Managing Director of Small Business Loans Australia Alon Rajic said: “The Australian government should take action such as reviewing lending criteria or mandating maximum approval timelines to address these factors and actively work towards enhancing the accessibility of SME finance within responsible lending practices. Currently, we find ourselves trapped in a situation where traditional lending standards are being enforced even more strictly amidst economic uncertainty.”

Family homes going vertical

THE Australian dream of owning your own home on a quarter acre block was always more attractive than life in a cramped two-bedroom unit.

Fifty years ago, according to Ray White Real Estate. you and your family might have been able to purchase vacant land right near Sydney’s centre and build your own property with no more than a couple hundred thousand in the bank.

Fast forward to now – there’s no vacant land left within several kilometres of the city and detached houses in the area will most likely set you back well over $1M.

Now all that’s about to change as more and more families are switching to living life vertically in much larger apartments.

Imagine if you could take your new family home far out on the fringes of suburbia and place it in a high rise right in the heart of a CBD like Campbelltown, Liverpool, Blacktown, Parramatta or Gosford.

You could walk to work, shopping, dining out, the train, the footy, your local school and even the doctor. Your building might contain a mini mart, a coffee shop, a pool, a gym and all the other luxuries of a high-rise resort,

Well, developers are quick to notice a change in demand or a brand-new

marketing opportunity when they see one- and that’s what is happening with the trend towards larger apartments.

The perfect example is a plan to swap out one and three-bedroom apartments for four-bedroom units in a dual-tower project in Sydney’s north-west at Castle Hill which has just been approved.

While building A in the project planned for Garthowen Crescent, Castle Hill was unchanged, the amendments for building B approved by The Hills Shire Council reduced the total number of apartments to 185 from 192.

The addition of four-bedroom apartments reflects a growing trend in apartments as families and downsizers look to vertical living.

The original plans for the $69M project were approved in 2021, with some criticism from sections of the community over height issues and traffic concerns.

The development is called ‘Grand Rève’ and is described as- “contemporary luxury apartments homogenised with a beautiful, landscaped podium, seating pods, lush intimate spaces and residential dining sprinkled throughout”.

And Its location in the Sydney Metro Northwest Urban Renewal Corridor means that no more than 25% of the homes should be one-bedroom units and that 20% should have three or more bedrooms.

The Garthowen Crescent precinct is currently characterised by low-density homes with some medium-density development.

There are also some new multi-level high-density residential buildings that have frontages to Garthowen Crescent and Old Northern Rd.

Four-bedroom units are more likely to go up in value because they are so attractive to buyers and are currently in scarce supply.

And the city’s amazing growth will ensure values skyrocket. Currently, there are 5.2 million people in Sydney and by mid-century Sydney will have eight million people, with 10 million inhabitants in NSW.

Apartments already make up close to 40% of the new homes market, doubling in just a decade. So, instead of building a new four bedroom home a long way from anywhere, families are increasingly likely to buy a four-bedroom unit across the street, around the block or even in the same building.

ZIG ZAG Railway back on track

THE historic Zig Zag Railway has returned to life as passenger services resumed following a joint volunteer and NSW Government effort to restore the Blue Mountains icon from fire and flood damage.

For years, volunteers have toiled to restore the railway and the NSW Government provided more than $5.9M through Crown Lands and the Department of Regional NSW to rebuild the locomotive workshop, construct a car park, pedestrian crossing and amenities block.

Zig Zag Railway also rebuilt its safety management system, network rules, procedures and rail policies after a decade out of operation to be granted accreditation to resume passenger services by the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator.

Minister for Lands and Property Steve Kamper said the reopening was another milestone in the railway’s ongoing journey.

“Zig Zag Railway is a tourist and heritage icon for our state attracting up to 80,000 visitors a year so the NSW Government investment to support the volunteers to get it back on the tracks will be great for tourism, business and jobs in the Lithgow and Blue Mountains regions,” Mr Kamper said.

Zig Zag Railway Acting Chief Executive Officer Daniel Zolfel said the community-wide effort to restore the railway had been heart-warming.

“It’s been 10 plus years of blood, sweat and tears so this weekend’s reopening brings overwhelming relief and will be very emotional for all those involved,” Mr Zolfel said.

“We couldn’t have done it without the dedicated volunteers and also financial support of the NSW Government to restore the workshop which is the heart and soul, car park, repair viaducts and tunnels, tracks, locomotives, carriages and platform precincts at Clarence, Top Point and Bottom Point stations.”

The 154-year-old railway dates back to 1869 when it was first opened as part of the Main Western rail line serving mountain runs until 1910 when a track deviation was installed.

The not-for-profit Zig Zag Railway Co-op resurrected the heritage-listed railway in 1975 but was stalled from 2012 by accreditation issues followed by bushfire and storm damage, and then further wiped out by the 2019-2020 bushfires.

Visitors will again experience the sights, sounds and smells of the steam train era from this weekend with the Zig Zag Railway to run three 90-minute trips at 10.30 am, 12.30 pm and 2.30pm each fortnight on Saturdays and Sundays on its 7.5 kilometre track.

Super fund calls for gig worker support

SUPERANNUATION fund HESTA has called for mandatory employer Super Guarantee (SG) contributions to be included in minimum standards for gig workers to prevent future poverty. HESTA has called for legislative changes to secure super rights for gig workers and strengthen oversight by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to ensure proper super payments by employers. The focus is on gig work in the care economy, particularly in health and community services, where online platform employment is becoming more prevalent.

Concern over IR changes

THE proposed industrial relations (IR) changes by the Australian Federal Government could have various con sequences, says Business NSW. These include a surge in grocery prices, an increase in cash-in-hand work, and higher costs for major events.

Business NSW expressed concern about the reforms, stating that they will permanently alter the operations of over 840,000 businesses in the state.

Key concerns for businesses are the Same Job Same Pay provisions and changes to entitlements for casual employee.

Easier management of land tax

THE NSW Government has expanded its MyServiceNSW Account platform to include the management of land tax obligations. People can now seamlessly access and manage land tax alongside other services such as driver license renewal or applying for cost-of-living support. Through the My ServiceNSW Account, users can view or manage land tax, lodge returns, request exemptions, access assessment notices, and set up payment plans. They can also opt-in for digital notifications, reducing delivery time to just 48 hours.

Sydney Water safe from sale

THE NSW Minns Government has passed the Constitutional Amendment (Sydney Water and Hunter Water) Bill 2023, protecting Sydney Water and Hunter Water from privatization. The amendment to the Constitution Act ensures that these state-owned corporations and their main undertakings remain in public ownership and cannot be sold or disposed of.

Deceased estate concerns

AN inquiry into the handling of deceased estates by six banks in Australia has uncovered poor practices and non-compliance with the Banking Code of Practice. The inquiry found instances of banks continuing to charge fees on accounts of deceased customers, failing to act within required timeframes, and lacking respect and compassion towards representatives and families of deceased customers. The Banking Code Compliance Committee (BCCC) has notified three banks of investigations into their compliance with deceased estates obligations.

Inefficient health care system

THE Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has highlighted inefficiencies in the healthcare system, including non-standardized templates, unnecessary naming of specialists in referrals, and outdated data-sharing practices. The RACGP has called for improved collaboration and integration between general practices, specialists, and hospitals. They recommend ending the requirement for named referrals, implementing standardized digital systems for data sharing, and piloting data-sharing between hospitals and primary care. The RACGP emphasizes the need for streamlining processes to save time for GPs, improve patient outcomes, and reduce hospital readmissions. Standardized digital systems can enhance communication, facilitate virtual healthcare, and make the system more efficient.

Knee jerk reaction to ban

ROAD Freight NSW (RFNSW) has criticized the call to ban ‘large’ trucks from the Sydney Harbour Tunnel, warning that it would have negative consequences for road safety, local supply chains, and the economy. RFNSW CEO Simon O’Hara labeled the proposal a knee-jerk reaction and emphasized the need for collaborative solutions. He expressed concerns about the impact on small trucking businesses, safety risks on suburban roads, and the potential loss of revenue for operators of major roads.

Fair F ield local Business aWards 2023 Best Fairfield businesses on show

HOLLYWOOD has the Oscars and the music industry has the Grammys – but for Fairfield City businesses, the annual night of nights is Wednesday June 14 at Doltone House Western Sydney.

That’s the date of the 2023 Fairfield Loacl Business Awards.

Precedent Productions Managing Director and Awards founder Steve Loe said: “There’s no doubt that local business owners and their staff work hard to provide the best possible service to their customers.

“That’s why the annualFairfield City Local Business Awards presentation night is always such a popular event.

“It’s a glittering event that gives finalists a chance to dress up and take a break so they can enjoy an evening of entertainment, good food, relaxed chat and celebration with their colleagues and people from other businesses from around the district.”

Mr Loe said being a finalist at the Fairfield City Local Business Awards presentation night was an enormous achievement.

“It’s also a chance for businesspeople and their teams to reflect on their successes with a fun night out,” he said.

“Making it to the finalist presentation is a great reflection on their efforts and everyone is always extremely proud to be there.”

All finalists in each category are announced, with their picture shown on the big screen.

“It’s heart-warming to hear the deafening cheers from the crowd as everyone celebrates the achievement of all the businesses in the room.”

“Today is the day when nominees for the 2023 Hills Local Business Awards discover if they have made it as a finalist.”

Mr Loe said the high quality of all nominees had made the job of judges incredibly difficult.

“Western Sydney Express, which has supported the awards as media partner for many years, will announce the finalists in each category with a special feature in today’s paper,” he said.

“This is a chance for customers and clients to see if the businesses they nominated have become finalists.”

The Fairfield City Local Business Awards are only possible with the support of Presenting Partner, Commonwealth Bank and Major Partners, Fairfield City Council, Nova Employment, Doltone

House, Stockland, White Key Marketing, Cornerstone and media partner Western Sydney Express.

“It’s with great pleasure that I congratulate all the finalists on their achievements, on behalf of the Inner West Local Business Awards,” Mr Loe said.

“I would also like to thank the Inner West community for the huge support that they continue to show for their local businesses through the Awards every year.

“Without them, these outstanding businesses would receive the recognition which they deserve.”

“As the new owner I do not want to lose the essence of our dance family, however I will strive to inspire and create even more memorable moments.

THE BEST AND WORST JOBS BY SALARIES Aussies rate income options

MINING is the best industry to get a job in for Aussies and migrants wanting a big salary while accommodation and food services is the worst.

According to new research, if you are making around $1,250 a week you are on the 2023 average wage.

Now, Australia has increased its immigration intake, yet it now ranks as the 13th most expensive destination globally, with a record 900,000 of the population taking on a second job last year.

To help incoming immigrants who may be figuring out how to make ends meet, the new research from an immigration information platform has uncovered which industries deliver the best jobs, as voted by Australians.

Immigration assistance and advice platform Immigration to Australia commissioned a survey of an independent panel of 1002 Australians to gauge their opinions on the best three and worst three industries to work in.

Respondents were asked to choose the best and worst three industries for jobs for immigrants, from a list of 17 key industries in Australia and their corresponding average weekly salaries, using Australian Bureau of Statistics data.

When making their decisions, respondents were asked to consider the wages and responsibilities of the jobs in those industries.

As per the latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the median Australian employee earning is $1,250 per week, while average weekly housing costs are $493 for owners with a mortgage and $379 for renters.

The average monthly cost of living for a family of four in Australia is $5,540.80 or $1,385.27 per week excluding rent and $1,573.10 or $393.28 per week for a single person excluding rent.

The best three industries for jobs are: mining, construction and utilities.

With the highest average salary, mining was chosen by the largest proportion at 51% of respondents as the best industry

for work. This came despite risk of serious injury and typically laborious job tasks.

In 2021 there were six miner fatalities and 117 serious injuries, of which 45% involved fractures and 35% involved wounds, lacerations, amputations and internal organ damage.

Views of older Australians

The second-best industry for work is construction, chosen by 32% of respondents – despite the industry’s seventh place ranking on the pay-grade scale. The third best industry for work – chosen by 29%

per cent of respondents – is electricity, gas, water and waste services.

Older Australians are more likely to view mining, construction, professional, scientific and technical services, manufacturing and health care and social services as better industries than younger Australians.

In particular, a higher proportion of older respondents chose construction as a top industry for immigrants to work in: the industry was chosen by 41% of over-65s, compared with 28% of 35-54s and 26% of under-35s.

Younger Australians are more likely to choose agriculture, forestry and fishing, electricity, gas, water and waste services, financial and insurance services, and arts and recreation services as top industries than older Australians.

Electricity, gas, water and waste services was chosen by 38% of under-35s, compared with 25% of 35-54s and 23% of over-65s.

With Sydney the financial hub of Australia’s business sector, it’s no wonder a higher proportion at 28% of NSW respondents chose financial and insurance services as a top-three industry. This compares with an equal 20% of Victorians and South Australians, 19% of West Australians and 18% of Queenslanders.

The worst three industries for job are retail, accommodation and food and arts and recreation

Retail trade, which placed second last in the pay-grade scale, attracted the highest proportion of votes 46% for the worst industry for immigrants. Accommodation and food services followed closely behind, chosen by 45% of respondents.

Coming in at third place was arts and recreation services, chosen by 33% of respondents.

Younger Australians who are more likely to be working in accommodation and food services are more likely to choose this industry as one of the worst three industries in Australia: 47% of under-35s chose this as a worst-three industry – compared with 45% of 35-54s and 44% of those 35-44s.

Founder and CEO of Immigration to Australia Alon Rajic said: “While there is some correlation between best and worst industries and the wages these industries pay, it appears that a good proportion of Australians agree that some high-paying industries are not worth working in due to difficulty of their job tasks.”

The full results, with age and State breakdowns, can be found here: https://immigration2australia. com/best-and-worst-jobs-in-australia/

The industries and average salaries presented to respondents were: 1. Mining ($2497 per week). 2. Electricity, Gas, Water and Waste Services ($1855 per week). 3. Financial and Insurance Services ($1700 per week). 4. Professional, Scientific and Technical Services ($1692 per week). 5. Public Administration and Safety ($1620 per week). 6.

and Feeling Blue Fighting off the Flu

With the winter months ahead of us, now is the time to prioritise your physical and mental health to make sure that you’re prepared for the colder days to come.

Shielding Against Seasonal Flu

Influenza (flu) cases tend to peak between June and September in Australia every year as the temperature starts to drop. It is important to get the flu vaccine even if you are healthy, to prevent you catching the flu and spreading the infection. This can help protect your friends, family and vulnerable people in your community.

The following priority groups can receive their flu vaccine for free:

9 Children aged six months to under five years

9 People aged 65 years and over

9 Aboriginal people aged six months and over

9 Pregnant women

9 Those with serious health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, immune disorders, obesity, severe asthma or kidney, heart, lung or liver disease

Speak to your GP or pharmacist about getting a flu shot and to make sure you are up-to-date with the COVID-19 vaccine.

Darker Days and Gloomy Moods

As the days get shorter, darker and colder, many people can find themselves feeling sad. It can be difficult to find the motivation to socialise as frequently, and many outdoor activities are limited during the winter months. This can lead to isolation and loneliness. The reduced sunlight during winter can also disrupt your body’s internal clock, and it’s normal for people to experience irregular sleep patterns, have low energy and feel more irritable and sad.


Finding appropriate exercises in winter can be more challenging, but it’s vital for both your physical and mental health to keep up with regular exercise. Live Life Get Active offer free daily live-streams and on-demand videos for all abilities, covering everything from yoga, to dance and cardio. Get moving at: livelifegetactive.com/fitness/workout-at-home/

Eat Nutritious, Nourishing Food:

It’s tempting in winter to switch to our favourite fast foods, particularly when our energy levels are low. However, processed foods can end up worsening our moods. Healthy and hearty meals can help us feel happier and fuller for longer.

Western Sydney Diabetes’s free e-book offers lots of tasty, nutritious recipes to keep the whole family happy: bit.ly/WSD-Recipe-Book-2023

Create a Healthy Sleep Routine:

Consistency is key to a healthy sleep, which can be tricky with the changes to daylight hours. To keep your body clock on track, try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day and avoid too much screen time before bed.

Keep Connected:

Reaching out to your family and friends is key to beating the winter blues. It can be harder to organise catch ups when it’s cold and dark, but try and make sure you’re still staying connected to friends and family, even if it’s just for a quick walk to the park or for a bite to eat. You can also reach out for free mental health support at: headtohealth.gov.au

Fast X – Four stars

A loud, proud, fast and furious start to the finale of this franchise.

WHEN Dante (Jason Momoa), the son of the main villain from Fast Five, comes looking for revenge on the crew that killed his father, he doesn’t want to kill them; he wants to make them suffer.

On the back foot, Dom (Vin Diesel) is separated from Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), who is also separated from Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Tej (Ludacris), Han (Sung Kang) and the rest of the family. As they each try to get out of their respective jams, and assemble the full crew for the fight of their lives, Dom has to also try and protect his son from the claws of this madman.

Fast X is the long-awaited start to the uber finale of the Fast and Furious franchise. After 10 movies, the question is not whether these movies can still surprise you - the question is whether or not you care.

This film deals in major, mind-boggling action, taking us from LA to Rome, to Portugal and Rio. It’s a whirlwind tour, but one of the best things about this film is that while it still undoubtedly is far from realistic, it has shaved off some of the more outlandish choices of previous movies.

The team are generally back to the cars, and that feels grounded - in so far as this movie could ever be grounded.

Jason Momoa makes his franchise debut as Dante; the villain of the piece. And he is fantastic. Camp, aggressive, and playing to the rafters, Momoa is fabulously dressed, fabulously mean, and straight up fabulous.

The franchise, heralded to finish with a big two parter in Fast X and the sequel (although rumors abound of it being a 3 parter), needed a villain who could match the lovability and bombasity of these characters, and they have finally found one.

Momoa brings such a welcome breath of fresh energy to the franchise, you’ll be wishing this wasn’t the beginning of the end. Other than that, this movie generally takes the form of the first hour of The Avengers. The villain is introduced in a big way.

The team has to sort of get back together. And they are set up for a big finale. The difference? Mixed among all of that is some A grade action.

Whether it’s pulling clips from the backstory elements of Fast Five (a nice way to include Paul Walker in this film),

which serves as a great reminder of that incredible safe sequence, shepherding a giant bomb with cars through the streets of Rome, or smashing cars off the road with helicopters attached to your bumper, the visuals on display are just insane.

Then there’s all the regular things we love about the Fast and Furious franchise; huge names, even bigger cameos, gruff dialogue that doesn’t always make sense, a plethora of one liners, tank tops and white jeans. It’s all here, and if you’re a fan of the previous movies, you’ll love this one.

Ultimately, for me, this film sat somewhere below Fast Five and Furious 7, which jointly represent the high-water mark in my humble opinion, but above the remainder of the franchise entries (including Hobbs and Shaw).

For a film that is effectively the introductory half of the finale, that’s a great sign.

John Farnham: You’re The Voice – Three stars

Arevelatory musical experience on one of Australia’s biggest cultural icons.

John Farnham: Finding The Voice chronicles the life of John Farnham, one of Australian music’s biggest names.

Starting with the early days and his original debut as Johnny Farnham with a series of family friendly hits, the film tracks his fall to a level of unpopularity around the country, and his time with Little River Band, before his triumphant ascent to stardom with his hit You’re The Voice

This documentary is perhaps unique in its incredible access to a range of major stars, but the fact that neither John Farnham, nor his wife (nor Olivia Newton-John for that matter) appear on screen.

All three are heard audibly commenting throughout, but it should be noted that they do not make a visual appearance here, because other huge names do - his manager, Daryl Braithwaite, Robbie

The film mixes those interviews with an array of incredible historical footage. Farnham’s life is captured well across old footage and old photography, and the documentarians mix it together in a fascinating way to craft an intimate portrait of the legendary singer.

With a film like this, one of the major elements of consideration has to be cross-generational appeal, and Farnham’s

hit You’re The Voice is the driver that creates that mix of age groups. Whether you’re young or old, you have heard that absolute banger, and the movie definitely understands that to an extent.

The peak of this film is the lead up to, and ultimately the first performance of You’re The Voice, and that 30 minute segment is absolutely compelling and completely unmissable.

When Farnham rips into his rendition of the song on stage in Berlin, it is a glorious 2 or 3 minutes of overwhelming Aussie rock and roll, and you’ll feel the chills rippling down your spine in time with the claps and bagpipes at the start. Impressive filmmaking to say the least.

The issues come before and after with this doco. The absence on screen of John, his wife and Olivia Newton-John undoubtedly hurts the movie.

The passing of the manager during the filming of the project probably complicat-

ed the pacing of the film, but is dealt with respectfully and emotionally during the finale of the film - and indeed, the other standout highlight is Farnham’s relationship with his manager and the loyalty on show between the two of them.

Ultimately, when an artist like this has one particularly standout song, it is tough to have to drop that song somewhere in the movie.

The start of the film feels like you are waiting for the banger, and the end feels irrelevant because you’ve already heard what you came to see.

While the filmmaking team here definitely did a fantastic job with that song when it was incorporated, the film ultimately peaks in the middle and is less interesting either side.

GWM introduces

FOLLOWING the recent introduction of its petrol/electric-powered Tank 300 4WD, GWM has added a new variant by lopping off the ‘hybrid’ part of the powertrain to create the petrol-powered Tank 300 – at a huge cost saving over the hybrid.

The five-seater Tank 300 petrol is available in two grades, Lux and Ultra priced from $46,990 and $50,990 respectively, drive-away. These prices are $9000 and $10,000 less than their hybrid stablemates.

The model sells against an ocean of soft road medium and large SUVs, but few with the genuine 4WD capabilities of the Tank 300 petrol. The closest proper ‘fourbie’ petrol competitor is Jeep’s V6 Wranger Unlimited Night Eagle that’s way out of the ballpark on price at $81,450 plus on-road costs. Comparable Land Rover Defenders are above that again.

There are a bunch of ridgey-didge fourbie diesel alternatives including the Ford Everest Ambiente (from $58,290), the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLX (from $49,940), Toyota’s Fortuner GX (from $57,620) and the Isuzu MUX LS-M (from $54,900). But these are all low spec’ base models.

GWM says the new model is “for those searching for a petrol SUV that is both rugged and refined with a tech-laden interior, tough off-road capability, dependable safety and affordable.”

Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine

with 162kW (hybrid is rated at 225kW combined) and 380Nm of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (no manual is available) that feeds drive to the wheels through a part-time 4WD system.

It consumes petrol at the combined rate of 10.7 litres per 100km running on regular 91 RON unleaded fuel and can tow up to 2500kg braked.

As reported in GoAuto’s Tank 300 Hybrid review earlier this year the Chinese-made model uses a ladder-frame chassis sourced from the GWM Ute and in addition to selectable 4WD has a locking rear differential (a front locker is included on the high-grade model).

Measuring 4760mm in length,

1930mm wide and 1903mm high, the Tank 300 is 122mm shorter from bumper to bumper when compared to a long-wheelbase Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. It is, however, 55mm taller and 36mm wider, meaning it offers slightly better accommodation for passengers and luggage.

At home on or off road

Off-road specs and clearance numbers see the Tank 300 with 224mm of ground clearance, a 33-degree approach angle and 34-degree departure angle. No ramp-over or wading details are available.

GWM says the set up makes the Tank 300 petrol at home on-road and

off-road providing comfort, capability, convenience and safety in a vehicle with an extensive feature list.

Tank 300 standard equipment list includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a six-way power driver seat, Comfort-tek leather seats, micro-fibre leather steering wheel, 12.3-inch full colour instrument cluster and 12.3-inch full colour infotainment system, front and rear USB charge points (front with data transmission), Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, nine-speaker audio, seven-colour ambient lighting, DAB+, power windows, auto-folding and heated power wing mirrors, LED headand taillights, daytime running lamps, sunroof, two-piece under-body guard, and 12V power outlets in the front and luggage compartment.

The Ultra adds 18-inch alloys, Nappa leather seats, heated and cooled front seats, eight-way powered driver seat with massage function and four-way powered lumbar support adjustment, a heated leather steering wheel, wireless charging, premium Infinity nine-speaker audio, 64-colour ambient lighting, 220V power outlet (luggage cabin), front differential lock, three-piece bash plates, auto parking and auto reverse tracking function.

Safety features commensurate with the vehicle’s five-star ANCAP rating include tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), seven airbags, adaptive cruise control, auto emergency braking, front collision warning, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition, rear cross-traffic alert with brake, crawl control for ultra low-speed off-road driving, and a feature called ‘tank turn’ that selectively applies the brake to assist steering in tight off-road conditions, a la the top-spec’ Toyota LandCruiser 300.

Also included is a transparent chassis camera function, front and rear parking sensors and a 360-degree view camera system.

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF WEIGHT TRAINING Building strength and well-being

WEIGHT training, also known as strength training or resistance training, involves working against resistance to build muscle strength and improve overall fitness.

While often associated with bodybuilders and athletes, weight training offers a wide range of health benefits for individuals of all ages and fitness levels.

From enhancing physical performance to promoting mental well-being, incorporating weight training into your exercise routine can have a transformative impact on your overall health.

Increased Muscle Strength and Bone Density

One of the primary benefits of weight training is its ability to increase muscle strength and mass. By consistently challenging your muscles with resistance exercises, you stimulate muscle fibers, leading to their growth and increased strength. This not only improves your physical performance and endurance but also enhances functional abilities in daily activities. Additionally, weight training is known

to promote bone health by stimulating bone formation, which can help prevent age-related conditions such as osteoporosis.

Enhanced Metabolic Rate and Weight Management

Weight training has a profound impact on your metabolism. As you build muscle mass, your body requires more energy to maintain those muscles, leading to an increase in your resting metabolic rate. This means that even at rest, you’ll burn more calories throughout the day. Weight training, combined with a balanced diet, can be an effective tool for weight management, as it helps preserve and build lean muscle while promoting fat loss.

Improved Cardiovascular Health

Contrary to popular belief, weight training is not solely focused on building muscle strength. It can also have a positive impact on cardiovascular health. Engaging in high-intensity weight training exercises raises your heart rate, improving cardiovascular fitness and endurance. It helps lower blood pressure, reduce LDL (bad) cho-

lesterol levels, and increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels. By incorporating weight training into your exercise routine, you can reduce the risk of heart disease and improve overall cardiovascular well-being.

Enhanced Mental Health and Cognitive Function

Weight training offers numerous mental health benefits. Physical activity, including weight training, stimulates the release of endorphins, which are natural mood boosters that can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression. Regular weight training has also been associated with improved cognitive function and memory. It enhances brain health by promoting neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to reorganize and form new neural connections. Moreover, weight training can improve sleep quality, further contributing to overall mental well-being.

Joint Stability and Injury Prevention

Weight training not only strengthens muscles but also improves joint

stability. It helps build supporting muscles around joints, reducing the risk of injuries and enhancing joint flexibility and mobility. Weight training is particularly beneficial for individuals with arthritis or joint pain, as it helps alleviate symptoms and improves their ability to perform daily activities.


Weight training offers a multitude of health benefits, reaching far beyond building muscle and strength. It improves overall physical performance, enhances metabolic rate, aids in weight management, and promotes cardiovascular health. Additionally, weight training contributes to mental well-being, cognitive function, and joint stability. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced fitness enthusiast, incorporating weight training into your exercise routine can be a valuable investment in your long-term health and well-being. Always remember to start with proper form, seek guidance from a professional trainer, and gradually progress your workouts to ensure safety and maximize the benefits of weight training.

MANY BENEFITS OF A GOOD DIET Tips for better brain function

IN today’s fast-paced world, taking care of our mental health is more important than ever.

While therapy and medication are widely recognized as effective treatments for mental health conditions, we often overlook the impact that our diet can have on our psychological well-being.

Research has shown that maintaining a healthy diet can play a crucial role in promoting mental health and well-being.

In this article, we will explore the mental health benefits of a good diet and how you can incorporate it into your lifestyle.

One of the keyways in which diet influences mental health is through its effect on brain function.

Our brain requires a constant supply of nutrients to function optimally. Nutrient deficiencies, such as those in vitamins B12, folate, and omega-3 fatty acids, have been linked to an increased risk of mental health disorders, including depression and anxiety.

By consuming a balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, we can ensure that our brains receive the necessary nutrients for optimal functioning.

Additionally, a healthy diet can positively impact our mood and emotions. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as fatty fish, walnuts, and flaxseeds, have been found to have mood-enhancing effects.

These essential fats help reduce inflammation in the brain and promote the production of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, which plays a crucial role in regulating mood.

On the other hand, diets high in processed and sugary foods have been associated with an increased risk of depression and anxiety. These foods can lead to blood sugar fluctuations and inflammation, negatively affecting our mood and overall mental well-being.

Improved energy levels

Maintaining a good diet can improve our energy levels and cognitive function. Diets high in refined sugars and saturated fats can cause energy crashes and impair cognitive abilities, leading to difficulties in concentration and memory.

On the contrary, consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains provides a steady source of energy and essential nutrients, promoting mental clarity and focus.

Research suggests that certain antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, such as vitamins C and E, may protect the brain against oxidative stress and age-related cognitive decline.

Implementing a healthy diet is not just about what we eat but also how we eat. Practicing mindful eating can contribute to better mental health outcomes.

Taking the time to savor and appreciate our meals can help us develop a healthier relationship with food and reduce stress.

Mindful eating involves paying attention to physical hunger and fullness cues, eating slowly, and engaging all the senses while enjoying our meals.

In conclusion, a good diet plays a significant role in promoting mental health and well-being. By incorporating nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables,

whole grains, and healthy fats, into our daily meals, we can provide our brains with the essential nutrients they need to function optimally.

Avoiding processed and sugary foods can help reduce the risk of mental health disorders and support a balanced mood. Remember, it’s not just about what you eat but also how you eat.

Practicing mindful eating can enhance the overall experience and contribute to a healthier relationship with food.

So, let’s prioritize our mental health and start nourishing our bodies and minds with a good diet.
