Remember when the Hinterland was Doonan, Tinbeerwah, Eumundi and Cooroy? Well many now consider that these suburbs are simply a ‘rural residential’ extension of Noosa Heads and Noosaville. People looking for a ‘green-change’ are now embracing all areas west of the Bruce Hwy with the area between the villages of Eumundi and Kenilworth coming in for special attention. Combine young families looking for a genuine country environment in which to raise their children and ‘remote’ corporate high-flyers - they are all being seduced by the charms of the Mary Valley. Whether it is simply enough space for a pony and a few chooks or 100 acres for a stud cattle breeding operation, the area is attracting a whole new range of buyers. Many now prefer the total ‘green-change’ embracing an authentic rural lifestyle with the benefit of being only 20 to 30 minutes away from the beaches.

Business B R E W E RY T U R N S O N E Last month Eumundi Brewery celebrated turning one in style with an elegant beer – food matching sit down dinner for 100 lucky, beer loving locals and staff. Lion’s Master Brewer Chuck Hahn celebrated the milestone with local brewers Chris Sheehan, Allan Tilden and Cleve Holloway, and spoke of the vision he had had of bringing Eumundi Brewery back to life. The evening was catered for by Imperial Hotel chef Cale, with flowers by florist Nat of Heavenly Blooms. Eumundi favourite Tobias Robinson provided the beautiful music. At each course the brewers shared insight about one Eumundi Brewery’s signature beers. The highlight course was the raspberry and coffee infused stout, matched to bountiful platters of chocolate, marshmallow, fruit and cheese.

Sgt Brooke Flood, Eumundi Police 5442 8222

Division 10

The Sunshine Coast Horizon Festival finished with some fantastic events in Eumundi. To echo the words of Experience Eumundi general manager Anthony Wynne-Hoelscher, it was a crackerjack weekend of arts and culture! I was lucky enough to attend the finals of the poetry and storytelling competition and performance at The Bunker. The Wearable Art competition was another huge highlight. This event wasn’t originally part of the Horizon program but was able to be included at the eleventh hour thanks to a $15,000 Festival Australia Grant which enabled organisers to put together a terrific showcase that exceeded all expectations! This event aims to one day rival the prestigious ‘world of wearable art’ event which is staged in Wellington and attracts more than 50,000 people each year. Leading Sydney fashion designer Peter Dwyer and highly regarded local designer Cindy Vogels (who styles Lady

Gaga!) were both involved in the showcase at Horizon and put on wonderful wearable runway art styles for the event. On the back of the success of this showcase, an Australian Wearable Art Festival is already being planned to be staged at the Eumundi Terraces in late May next year. An exact date will be locked in soon. The School of Rock event was another outstanding success with 20 scholarships awarded from the event to school students from Grades three to eight - well done to all those talented young musicians! Finally, on the reopening of the closed Grays abbatoir I have nothing further to add at this time other than that the current owners are considering their options into the future. As such, if there is anything additional above the existing use rights (ie numbers of cattle processed per day) it would require a material change of use which would include a full public notification.

It is never okay to drink or drug drive. Not only are you putting your own safety at risk, you are also gambling with the lives of other road users. If you choose to break the law, it is only a matter of time before you get picked up by police, and you had better hope it’s for a random test and not because you have just killed an innocent person! Over the past two weeks police have located three drug drivers and one drink driver in our division. These results are very concerning to say the least. Illicit and some prescription drugs, just like alcohol, have wide ranging effects on the body and they can be deadly if you are driving whilst affected On 20 August, police executed a search warrant in relation to dangerous drugs on a Eumundi address. A 20 yearold man has been dealt with under the Drugs Misuse Act after police located a quantity

of dangerous drugs at the residence. Again, nearly every fortnight we have something reported stolen which wasn’t secured. Lock your house, your garage your vehicle, and take your keys out of the ignition! On 22 August, a stolen credit card was fraudulently used at two Eumundi businesses. Police have charged a 29 yearold Gympie man in relation to these and other criminal offences. Also on the evening of 22 August a motor vehicle was stolen from a carport at a residence on Eumundi Kenilworth Rd. Unfortunately, the keys had been left in the ignition of the vehicle. If you have any information which could assist police in relation to the outstanding stolen vehicle or any other matters, please call Crime Stoppers or Eumundi Police.

TIME CAPSULE OPENING Wendy Birrell, Discover Eumundi manager For those who remember when the time capsule was buried 25 years ago in 1993, come along and see the objects revealed on Friday 14 September at 8.45am. All the objects, letters and photos from the time capsule will then be displayed at Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre from early October. For more details info@discovereumundi.com

Arts SPOKEN WORD SUCCESS

Anthony Wynne-Hoelscher, Experience Eumundi manager

The Imperial Hotel’s Bunker in Eumundi was fully fortified by spoken word performances on Saturday afternoon as a sell-out crowd witnessed some of the Coast’s best poets and storytellers battling it out in the Bunker Spoken Word Finale as part of this year’s Horizon Festival. Saturday’s finale was the culmination of a series of events including workshops and competitive heats presented throughout the Festival by The Bunker Collective – a collaboration between Writers Republic and Peripheral Arts. The energised crowd was treated to powerful performances by hinterland storyteller and artist Jandamarra Cadd and UK slam poet Joelle Taylor, as she concluded her Australian tour. Prizes were awarded to Huda Fadlelmawla (first), Gil Douglas (second) in the poetry category

with Huda Fadlelmawla also taking out the People’s Choice Prize. Gil Douglas continued his streak in the Storytelling category winning first prize and the People’s Choice Prize with Emily Larkin taking home second prize. Cash prizes were supplied by Experience Eumundi and the Imperial Hotel.

HINTERLAND STREET EXHIBITION The new ‘A Street Shows its Art’ exhibition, now on display at Cooroy Butter Factory, is the collaboration of nine Tinbeerwah neighbours: Monika Juengling, Lily Hass, Tammy McGarry, Pamela Mitchell, Kurt and Heidi Becker, Pauline Ramsay-Murray, Heidi Woodman and Chantal Desplat. The exhibition came to fruition after the neighbours discovered a shared passion for the arts at a street barbeque and the venture was born. It’s an immersive cross section of painting, ceramics, printmaking, jewellery and sculpture. Painter Tammy McGarry has lived on Gumboil Rd for the past 10 years and said she hopes the Gumboil Rd artist’s collaboration offers inspiration to other hinterlanders to band together and inspire each other. “Every one of us lives surrounded by stunning rainforest, 8

Arts WEARABLE ART FINDS HOME IN EUMUNDI The Runaway Art Showcase was held on a pop-up catwalk in the Imperial Hotel’s Brewery event space on Friday 31 August as part of the Sunshine Coast’s Horizon Festival. A crowd of 150 fashion forward guests were treated to a wonderful fashion parade from acclaimed fashion designers Cindy Vogels and Peter Dwyer, as well as meet-and-greets. Six local artists - Yanni van Zijl, Faith Tawhai, Karen Jones, Larissa Salton, Lucy Yule and Kait Manchip - also showed wearable

art headpieces that they had created at work stations throughout the night. Eerwah Vale seamstress and costume designer Kait Manchip won Best Headpiece on the evening. Eumundi Market darlings Pendragron Shoes also displayed their wearable art footwear. The fashion event coincided with the official announcement that the Wearable Art Festival will be coming to Eumundi in May 2019. australianwearableart.com.au

REFUGEE SUPPORT SCREENING The Buddies Refugee Support Group is holding a special screening of The Staging Post by Jolyon Hoff at Berkelouw Books, Memorial Dr, Eumundi, this Thursday 13 September, 5.30pm. The film follows two Afghan Hazara refugees who built a school while stuck in Indonesia. The screening is part of Buddies rolling efforts to raise awareness about people seeking asylum and refugee issues.

H I N T E R L A N D W E E K E N D S : B U S H WA L K I N G Harper Cameron, Year 4, ESS Ignite English The delicate leaves, the clear flowing creeks, the birds that sing together in harmony - this is the place I adore. The beautiful, lush landscape is full of wildlife and animals of all shapes and sizes that roam free. This worn track shows me many have been here before me to look out to the magnificent view and find the secret waterfall. The long, strenuous hike to the top is definitely going to be worth the effort. The path guides me to where I’ll find the prize. I let my eyes follow the creek beside me as it flows vertically to the rocks far below. Now I stumble down the mossy, cobblestone stairs in my clumpy, climbing clobber. The warm rays of golden light on my back urges and pushes me on in the early frosty morning.

I finally reach a place to relax after my long hike. As I perch on a rock at the lookout, my breathing slows, my energy levels return and I enjoy the sights and sounds of the bush that surrounds me. I breathe in the view. Soon I will prepare to trek back from my hinterland journey... but not yet. I’ll stay a little longer in the place that I adore. Winding walkways, wondrous wildlife, whooshing waterfalls, my weekend walks in the hinterland.

Excitement rushes through me as I start to hear a rushing waterfall. The sparkling site of water gushing over the worn rocks is breathtaking. I close my eyes and the bush is transformed into a water wonderland. Droplets splash on my face as my jaw opens wide in astonishment. I remind myself to take a photo in my mind of the waterfall so, whenever I want, I can remember the unforgettable sight. As I tilt my head and look above, bumpy mountain ranges peak up above the green canopy and capture my eye. The crisp leaves crunch under my worn hiking boots as I reluctantly leave the waterfall and follow the creek’s path up the hill.

NEW ERA OF ROCK Eumundi School of Rock (SOR) is gearing up for its third successive year by announcing this year’s free children’s scholarships in front of a packed room of family members at The Imperial Hotel’s Brewery function room last week. The music loving kids aged eight to 13, who auditioned for a place in the program held their breaths as Eumundi School of Rock president Katie Noonan announced the names of kids

from across the hinterland region. The happy crowd were also entertained at last Sunday’s event by the brilliant North Arm State School Marimba Band; local young rockers (and Led Zeppelin acolytes) The Myths; and a powerful performance from the 2018 School of Rock band who have now changed their name to Valley Drive. Cont’d on pg 18

Sport NETBALL SEASON WRAP UP

The Eumundi Netball Club’s youngest team, Storm, made its debut in the modified division where each player’s skill level and interest soared under the guidance of new coach, Danika Fewster. The faces of this fledgling team simply beamed with excitement every game and was so satisfying to watch them all falling in love with netball. Our Year 4 team, the Flames, continued together on their netball journey, graduating from the modified division to

the main competition where the girls, despite their petite sizes, were confronted with full-height rings and the strict rules of adult players. Under the guidance of their coach Bonnie Baker, the Flames rose to the challenge and had a wonderful season, really coming together as a team. Our Eumundi Lightning team, achieved such great success early on that they were moved up a division mid-season and went on to give a great performance in their Grand Final. This was an amazing result for these Year 5/6 girls and new coach Emma Annetts, particularly as several team members were playing their first season of netball.

their winning trophies was icing on a very tasty cake and was well deserved! I’d like to wish all 15 of our Year 6 players, who are leaving the Eumundi Netball Club, the best of luck in their netball journeys at their respective new schools and clubs in 2019. Eumundi Club is looking forward to the next new intake of eager young players but, in the meantime, will enjoy a well-deserved break over summer.

Well just like that the season is over, with The Eumundi Dragons under 8’s having a cracker of a game against Maroochydore. There was a huge improvement in ball control and body position which was focused on at this week’s training which was clearly demonstrated on the field as we had lots of possession on the ball resulting in a couple of tries and a few very close ones as well. The forwards did extremely well in defending the try line when the pressure was on and turning the ball over to get it to the backs. The backs also defended well and got the ball out to the wing many times. It really was a great game of Rugby to watch which made choosing the player of the

running team, the Starlights, were rewarded for their commitment and effort by triumphing in their Grand Final. This was the team’s first Final and it is was a fitting end for this team of dedicated and fun-loving girls. It’s been an extremely fulfilling experience coaching these players from their first game in the modified division where they were still learning the rules, to three years later where strategy and tactics became their focus.

Health SPRING DETOX TIPS Dominque Liv-Kaval, Naturopath & Herbalist, Eumundi Markets

Be Fit Pilates offers mat classes with instructor Susa every Mon 6pm, Eumundi CWA Hall, Memorial Dr. BYO mat. 0419 184 967.

Spring is in the air and it’s time to throw off the winter blues, tone up your waistline and get a bounce back in your step. Our bodies build up a lot of congestion, inflammation, excess fat tissue and get sluggish over the winter months. Now is the perfect time for you to let it all go and detox for spring. Here are my three top tips to get you started. 1. Drink a glass of warm water every night before you go to bed. This will assist in the nightly cleansing process by flushing extra poisons from your system while you sleep. 2. Get green and steamy with your cooking. Make steamed greens your new best friend. These nourishing foods are super cleansing in the body and provide much needed minerals and nutrients to help detox. They are light on the body and help us lose weight. Simply steam greens and add to meals instead of heavier root vegetables.

NEWS

Eumundi Fitness is starting their next 30 day Body Blitz challenge with personal trainer Sam from Sun 30 Oct, 3pm. Limited spots available. Only serious applicants apply. Facebook: Eumundi Fitness. 3. Lemon cleanse day. Have a day each week where you have lemon drinks as the main feature. Simply replace breakfast and lunch with lots of lemon drinks and eat a light dinner. To make a lemon drink: add the juice of one half lemon to a cup and fill with hot water. Add a small pinch of sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional). Drink this through the day and make something light and nutritious for dinner. This will give your digestive tract a well-earned rest and boost detoxing. medicineroom.com.au

HAS DAD HAD A TUNE UP?

Celebrating Father’s Day with our families was a special time and a great way to pay tribute to the important role that dad’s play within the family element. However, despite the fact that more males are born each year in Australia, this lead starts to vanish with the first nappy change. From infancy to old age, women are simply healthier than men. Out of the 15 leading causes of death, men lead women in all of them except Alzheimer’s disease, which many men don’t live long enough to develop. Although the gender gap is closing, men still die almost five years earlier than women on average in Australia. While the reasons are partly biological, men’s approach to their health plays a vital role.

Men can be fastidious about maintaining their vehicles and homes though ironically, they ignore their most important asset – their health! It takes 10-20 years for the body to develop most cancers and advanced Coronary Artery Disease, which is the number one killer in Australia. If men received regular health checks more could be done during these years to change the course of their health history for the better.

There is a lot of literature linking masculinity to health issues in men. We have a cultural script about masculinity that tells men they need to be tough, brave, strong and self-reliant. It is exemplified in phrases like “be a man and “man up”. Men learn from an early age if they don’t act in this tough, masculine way they lose their status and respect as men.

Like any investment, such as your car or house maintenance, your body and mind need constant attention as you get older. Please give your dad and/ or partner a nudge if he hasn’t been for a checkup for over a year, especially if he is over 50. Small issues can develop into big ones when we avoid addressing them. Most health issues can be dealt with quickly if caught early.

The gentle dentist you will love! Hello, my name is Dr. Wei Shen and, after my patients find me, they tell me how difficult it was to find the right dentist. So, if you need a dentist and you just don’t know who to call, here are some reasons I could be right for you. If you like what you read please call us today. The team at Wattle Street Dental are Dr Wei Shen, Dr Mimi Chien, Dr Caitlyn Tindale, Rosi Ngwenya, Dr Rita Rockliff, Adelle Gauci and Arthur Graham. If it’s hurting - We can see you almost immediately whenever our office is open and stop the pain for you. Then, we’ll do a thorough checkup of your teeth and tell you what treatments you need and the costs involved.

Dr Wei and the team at Wattle Street Dental are passionate about your health and the safe removal of amalgam mercury fillings. Wattle Street Dental has recently been “SMART” certified by the IAOMT. Visit: http://thesmartchoice.com/

If you are a scaredy cat - You needn’t be! Our clients tell us they didn’t know having dental work done could be so painless and gentle ... a great recommendation!

Easy to get to - We have several parking spaces outside and underneath the clinic, and there are many buses and trains servicing the local area.

For teeth that look great - Choose from a range of cosmetic dentistry options to suit your budget, including whitening and injectables. We are happy to help you decide on what will work best for you.

Family friendly - We love looking after families so bring your kids in for any dental treatment they may need.

Appointments to suit you - To fit in with your busy schedule we are open late on Tuesday and Thursday nights and Saturdays by appointment.

Heritage EUMUNDI HALL SUPPER DANCE Eumundi was still a young community when war was declared in 1914. From the area, 104 men enlisted in the armed forces. Their absence had a considerable impact on this small community of around 500 men, women and children. Of those 104 men, 20 didn’t return and Eumundi’s Main Street (now Memorial Drive) and Gridley Street was planted with 20 Memorial Trees each with a plaque which remain to this day to remember them. This year will see the 100th Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended WW1 on 11 November 1918 at 11am. This day is now known as Remembrance Day and will be commemorated by the Eumundi Historical Association (EHA) in a number of ways before and on the date - including a supper dance reminiscent of ones held in the WW1 era. The Eumundi School of Arts hall, now in its 106th year, played a pivotal part in Eumundi’s participation in WW1, with many events held in the hall to raise money for the ‘war effort’ with the Red Cross, the Comfort’s Fund and the Women’s Patriotic Committee held many meetings there.

men again with a Supper Dance on Saturday 13 October in the historic hall where the WW1 Roll of Honour with the 104 men’s names still takes pride of place. This will be a great evening and will become part of the history of the hall, with some nostalgic old-time melodies from the 10 piece Pete Kelly Swing Band, ably supported by singers Melissa Isles and Carl Beck and a fabulous supper by chef Peter Wolfe of Free Ranging Chef included. eumundihistoricalassn. org/supper-dance .

In late 1918 Eumundi formed a Welcome Home Committee and held social functions in the School of Arts in honour of local returned soldiers. Many returning soldiers took over a year to finally make their way home, and the welcome home functions continued until the end of 1919. In the spirit of the Welcome Home Committee EHA feel it only fitting to honour these

Brett shared that the couple used second hand doors and windows, locally milled timbers and eco-friendly products such as Rockcote’s non-toxic paints from Yandina. “By doing a lot of the work ourselves it’s taken longer, but our mortgage is probably only half of what it could have been otherwise,” Brett explained.

Outdoors NEWS FROM THE WILDLIFE CENTRE

Vicki Toomey, Eumundi wildlife manager

AN INFLUX OF OWLS This year winter brought us some spectacular bird patients with many owls being brought into the Eumundi Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. We always see these birds more frequently over the winter months. It’s the breeding period for many owls so there’s a dispersing of youngsters from their nesting sites. It is also due to the increase in rodent numbers over this time. You too may have noticed an increase in rodents around dwellings, seeking the warmth and comfort of indoors. As we all start to rid our homes of unwanted pests, poisons get put out and the best rodent control of all, owls, suffer badly from the poisoning. Often this can affect them suddenly and they don’t live long enough to get to vets or wildlife care for treatment. Secondary rodenticide poisoning occurs when rats that have ingested a bait, are taken by an owl, and the poison is passed on to the predator to ingest as well. Strong rodenticide baits will do this. Not only does it kill predator species, it can kill non-target species, such as possums and bandicoots as well. If it is necessary to bait, always place baits inside buildings or in bait

traps. Maybe consider placing a trap out if you are worried about a rodent. That way we can check the species involved and humanely deal with them if required. Be careful of our native rodents as well. Not all rodents are the introduced Black Rats that have a tendency to invade our homes. Here on the Sunshine Coast we are really lucky to see Bush rats, Melomys, Water rats, and Swamp rats. They might live close to houses but prefer bushland grasses and grains and are not destructive like the introduced rodents.

and was a delight to see. We don’t usually see the two latter owls, so extra special to get both those patients out to release into the wild once again. The Sooty Owl had suffered a leg injury, likely hit by a vehicle and made a full recovery after weeks in care. The Powerful Owl recovered from concussion, likely also a collision injury and returned to fly free once again in his local roaming grounds.

Eumundi Wildlife Centre, at 1411 Eumundi Noosa Rd, are looking for new volunteers to help out with feeding, cleaning and preparing food for their patients. Now that spring has arrived, the centre will be especially busy with loads of baby patients. There are several shifts a day, each with different duties, however commitment to a four hour shift would be favourable. 5442 8057 or eellis@rspcaqld.org.au.

But back to the owls, this winter we had the pleasure of caring for many wonderful species: Barn owls, Boobook (Mopoke), a spectacular Sooty owl, and a Powerful Owl, which is listed as vulnerable in Queensland

The Boobook or Mopoke is the smallest and most common owl. Barn owls (Tyto alba), though hard to see, are the most widespread and familiar of the owls on the Sunshine Coast. They’re a medium sized bird with black eyes, a pretty heartshaped face, sandy orange and light grey upperparts and white to cream underparts. Both the back and breast are evenly spotted with black. Barn owls roost in logs, caves or dense trees.

The Sooty owl made a full recovery and was released back into its habitat. The Powerful owl recovering from concussion.

1411 Eumundi-Noosa Rd, Ph 5442 8057, www.wildliferehab.com.au 17

Boobook owls (Ninox novaeseelandiae), also known as the Mopoke, are the smallest and most common species across Australia. The owls have chocolate brown face with large yellow eyes and dark chocolate plumage with a heavily streaked breast with white spots. The bill is grey with a darker tip, and the feet are grey or yellow. Birds are often observed perched on an open branch or tree-top.

{ T H E G R E E N 12 September 2018

One of the Barn owls recovering at the Centre. Sooty owl (Tyto tenebricosa) gets its name from its sooty colour and is found in rainforests. It’s a mediumsize owl with large black eyes and a flat, heart-shaped face, which is sooty-black through to dark-grey or silver colour with an edged black rim. Their tail is very short and they have feathered legs. The toes are dark grey with large black talons. The bill is feathercovered almost to the tip. Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua) are the largest of the Australian nocturnal birds an a species of hawk owl with a relatively small head and a rounded tail. It is dark grey to dark grey-brown above, with distinctive dark v-shaped chevrons on its white chest. The eyes are yellow, set in a dark grey/brown face. The large, powerful legs are feathered with yellow to orange feet.


Cont’d from pg 10 These 20 lucky, talented music students will now be given intensive one-on-one tuition with industry experts and seasoned musicians throughout the rest of the year. They’ll be working towards forming rock bands in preparation for the end of year rock concert at Eumundi Schools of Arts, on Friday 14 December. Experience Eumundi’s general manager and SOR champion Anthony Wynne-Hoelscher explained that the bands will get to develop a concert playlist as well as learn stagecraft so they have the skills to take them further in the industry. “The School of Rock team sincerely thanks Experience Eumundi, Tourism Noosa, Sunshine Coast Council and Eumundi Rotary for financial support as well as the 20 absolutely wonderful local folks and businesses who have contributed $100 each to assist each student and help keep this wonderful program completely free for the students,” Anthony said.
