Introducing a

new Chappy for Maleny High


FUNDRAiSiNG DiNNER will be held later this month, for the new chaplain at the Maleny High School, Hayden Greathead. Hayden’s work falls under the broad umbrella of ‘Student Services’ and he shares this responsibility with other support services at the school. He is eager to touch base with the community to make sure that they understand the varied nature of his role. “i count it an absolute privilege to serve our young people, families, teachers and the widespread community of Maleny High School,” Hayden said. “i definitely could not do the job without the overwhelming support of the chaplaincy committee and school and extended community. Chaplaincy at Maleny High School has an ‘all things are possible’ vision, and a strong commitment to a service reaching onwards and outwards.” Maleny student Mikki said, “Chaplaincy is a fantastic

Chappy, Hayden Greathead, with students Lili Henderson, Rosie Skull and Mikki Doonan during the Action Against Bullying Day when Maleny High School was raising awareness and funds with a uniform-free day

way to be involved with both the school and the wider community. Also lots of fun!”, a sentiment echoed by many other students. Paul Tarbuck, chairperson of the Chaplaincy Services committee added his thoughts. “in a past life, i was Principal of Maleny High school for 16 years before retiring. in that time, chaplains became more common in State High Schools and i was there when the first chaplain was appointed to Maleny High, back in 1995. “i have worked with five chaplains and each of them brought a slightly different flavour and perspective to their work. i can honestly say that as time went by, it was obvious what a key role the chaplain has. “There were many occasions when i could not have

done without them and this became more frequent as the needs of students and their families have become far-reaching and sometimes very challenging.” The school chaplain is there to listen and provide necessary support both in the good times and the bad, without prejudice or preferential treatment. Nowadays, too, there is a mandatory requirement for them to have a Nationally Accredited Certificate 4 in Youth Work or Pastoral Care. if readers would like to support the Maleny High School chaplaincy program through a donation, then direct deposits can be made to “Genconnex inc” BSB 124156 Account No. 22102790 and add your name as a reference.

Peace of Green MALENY’S LONGEST ESTABLISHED GALLERY TURNS 25 What sets Peace of Green Gallery apart from other galleries is the fact that, as a collective of artists, one of the group is always on duty, happy to discuss their works as well as those by other members. It is this personal touch that sees the gallery still thriving after 25 years.

OUNDATiON MEMBER Jill Morris, of Greater Glider Productions, recalls how it all began: “We formed the first group from exhibitors at the Maleny Markets. Howard Jupp, Jo Shepherd and Sally Anne Lancaster were the driving force. “There were seven of us who took over the lease of a tiny shop (we called it the cupboard) next to the Maple Street Co-op.” Maleny legend Jill Jordan officially opened the new gallery. Sally and Jo made a green ceramic and glass disc, comprising seven pieces – one for each member. That is how the name came about, with ‘piece’ becoming ‘peace’. The initial seven included Gillian Pechey, Cathy Lawley (her ceramic frogs are famous) – still active members - and Sally’s mother, Peg Lancaster. This was 1993, and Maleny was abuzz with the idea of collectives and co-ops. Within six months, another dozen people were keen to be a part of this vibrant group. At this point the antique shop over the road became vacant. Jo jumped at the chance, and in 1994 a group of seventeen moved into the new premises. The Gallery was officially opened by Professor Paul Thomas, Vice Chancellor of the new University of the Sunshine Coast. Yanna Parmeijer, a local sculptor, created the ceramic logo that still hangs on the outside wall. Marc Kalifa, a long-term member, explained the principles of the gallery: “To be part of our collective, you must be local and your work of high quality and handmade. Over the years, around 70 artists have passed through, and many have gone on to greatness.” Just about every medium (both 2D and 3D) has been represented at some time, and many of the artisans are keeping ancient crafts alive, such as Marc’s glass blowing;

was great concern that the building, erected by local Harry Lyons as a motor garage in the 1880s, would be demolished to make way for development. However, the new owner proved to be very supportive of arts and crafts in all their forms. “This building represents so much of Maleny’s history,” said Jill, “so i decided to make a documentary starring the old girl and interviewed people who knew it as a restaurant, a home, a skating rink, and so many other things. “A Peace of Green: Cornerstone of a Community was launched at the Maleny Film Society on January 23, 2009. i think it made people sit up and take notice that we shouldn’t lose our heritage.” There are often collaborative projects between members. Years ago, Ann Oliver sculpted a northern hairynosed wombat, complete with slot in the head, to accept donations for the habitat and care of the endangered wombat. Ann and Jill have moved on but the sculpture continues to collect money to protect the species. “The success of Peace of Green comes back to hard work and trust,” said Gillian. “Everyone has to be able to manage the retail aspect of the Gallery. People take on key roles, and we work as a team. “Meetings and social events are a lot of fun. We have become a part of the tourist appeal of Maleny and the wider community of the Hinterland.” These days, with a membership of 23, Peace of Green is at capacity. “in the past five years, the quality and variety has improved immensely, and many are full-time professional artists,” said Marc. “A lot of younger artists have come on board, and we now have an active presence on social media. That’s what i like about POG, it is constantly evolving.” Normally, it is difficult for artists to make contact with the public, but Peace of Green is transformative. That’s what makes it different from other galleries. To mark the 25-year milestone, worldrenowned ceramicist and once Peace of Green member, Shannon Garson, will officially launch celebrations on Saturday April 7 at 4pm. It will be quite a party!

ANZAC Day - April 25, 2018

‘By the Left’ V

ETERANS HAVE ONE THiNG in common, they have all served or are currently serving their country. Whether male, female, full time or part time, deployed or home service. in 2018, a veteran initiative called ‘By the Left’ is broadening the public’s perception of what a veteran looks like. This is in response to many veterans, predominantly younger and/or female veterans being challenged about their medals. in most circumstances, veterans are being mistakenly questioned about whose medals they are wearing. However, some are being aggressively challenged and abused for apparently wearing someone else’s medals on the left side. This has resulted in hundreds of veterans, particularly those who have been consistently questioned for many years, feeling isolated from the veteran community as their experiences mean that they no longer march or wear their medals. One woman who will be marching is Christine Brunton, who joined the Women’s Royal Australian Naval Service (WRANS) in 1968 as a Radio Operator Telegraphist.

In Maleny this ANZAC Day, women veterans like Christine Brunton wearing the uniform of Navy Women Queensland and Cathy Stamp in her RSL jacket and medals will lead the march, thanks to the 2018 ‘By the Left’ initiative

Christine served at HMAS Harman in Canberra and HMAS Kuttabul in Sydney. Back in the day, WRANS were discharged on marriage. Christine credits her earlier career in the Navy as giving her the confidence to pursue further study at University. Christine now enjoys retirement in Maleny but keeps active with the RSL Maleny Sub Branch, Navy Women Queensland and volunteer work in Maleny.

ANZAC Day - April 25, 2018

Another Sunshine Coast local, Cathy Stamp, joined the RAAF in 1983, enlisting as a stenographer. She was commissioned in 2001 as Personnel Capability Officer and has served in Australia and Malaysia.

The culminating event for the ‘By the Left’ initiative is encouraging female veterans in particular, to march in normal ANZAC Day marches in 2018.

in 1999 Cathy was operationally deployed in East Timor and served a further two deployments in the Middle East in 2002 and 2009.

Marching on ANZAC Day is symbolic for many veterans, as it is a gathering of those who have served marching towards the cenotaph to honour those who did not return home.

Cathy retired from the RAAF as a Squadron Leader in 2011 and is currently a member of the RSL Caloundra Sub Branch and was recently elected as Vice President of Caloundra RSL Services Club.

Ms Dadds stated, “For one year only, female veterans are being invited to march together to welcome back and support their mates who have been impacted by this issue.”

Cathy and Christine are both veterans who are proud to wear their medals on the left on ANZAC Day. They are calling all other female veterans join them this ANZAC Day to march together under one banner.

‘By the Left’ is also encouraging all veterans to march with a group who they feel best identifies their service.

‘By the Left’ coordinator Ms Kellie Dadds reiterates that they are asking the public to view veterans as young, old, male, female, serving and ex-serving. “if asked what a veteran looks like, most will describe an older white male marching proudly with medals swinging. As a result, many veterans who do not fit that identity are being questioned about their medals.” ‘By the Left’ seeks to broaden the identity of a veteran, particularly given the recently updated definition of a veteran from ‘returned service’ to ‘current and ex-serving members of the ADF’. The inclusion of those who provided home service has been important to many. There is a generation of veterans who served between Vietnam and East Timor who did not have the opportunity to deploy, however their service is no less valued than those who did serve overseas. ‘By the Left’ is not about medals, it is about the identity of a veteran. But the initiative’s apparent focus on medals is because the public often only identifies a veteran when they wear their medals.

“indications so far are that hundreds of women will be marching, many for the first time, with the usual exservice women organisations who have marched together for over 40 years. We anticipate that Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney will have the largest gatherings,” Ms Dadds said. There is a new facebook page, ‘By the Left’, dedicated to improving the perception of veterans, and the page already has over 4000 followers. There are profiles of women currently serving, advice on how to send care packages, shared posts on what certain medals mean, and men and women sharing information experiences, historical knowledge and ANZAC Day locations and events. There are also veterans on the page who have found new ways to support those being deployed. RAN and RAAF veteran, Jan-Maree Ball, is the founder of Aussie Hero Quilt, and makes laundry bags and quilts for thousands of ADF members - a trail of ‘thank you’s’ runs beside her picture. This is a year to make a positive step towards more inclusion for female veterans, young and old. So best foot forward, and march.

Quidditch THE MAGIC OF

Unless you have been living under a rock since 1997, you have probably heard of Harry Potter, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the hugely popular sport – Quidditch. But did you know a version of Quidditch is alive and well and being played by hinterland locals at the USC? Victoria McGuin decided it was time to dust off the broom and pay these locals a visit.

by Victoria McGuin


Check out the Hinterland Times on Facebook: www.facebook.com/Hinterlandtimes



UiDDiTCH WAS ORiGiNALLY a fictional sport devised by author J.K. Rowling for her fantasy fictional series Harry Potter. The sport is a complex game with young witches and wizards flying round on broomsticks, and involves five balls (a Quaffle, three Bludgers, and a Golden Snitch) and four playing positions, with three ring-shaped goals. Matches are played between two opposing teams of seven players and the team with the most points when the snitch is caught (worth 30 points), wins. The appeal of this game to readers resulted in a modified, real-life version being created in Vermont in 2005, where players still used the brooms, but running replaced flying! From there, the sport has steadily grown, with the first Quidditch World Cup taking place in 2007, and Australia jumped on the broom-wagon at the University of New South Wales in 2011. Today, you will find quidditch players much closer to home, with three local members from Palmwoods and Buderim heavily involved. Over a milkshake at Rick’s Diner, i was to learn how this game has become an integral part of life for Ruth Creffield, Abbey Ashfield-Crook and Nina Ashfield-Crook. “When quidditch came to the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2014, there was a message on the uni student group page calling for players,” says Abbey. “i went to the second session and i never moved away from it. Once you play, you never stop.” “What’s great about it for me,” says Nina, “it is that there are people from all different sports, all different backgrounds and walks of life.” Ruth agrees, “it’s a unique blend of people, and they all bring different skills to the practise sessions. We have a sprinter who does heaps of training with us; then we have basketball and AFL and soccer skills from others.” “The sport is full contact and mixed gender, and each team of seven can only have a maximum of four of one

gender,” explains Abbey. “it’s also welcoming to everyone, male, female and non-binary, people can identify how they want.” People running across a pitch on broomsticks is an image that befuddles and delights me. “Some people find it gimmicky,” Abbey smiles, “but it adds another dimension to the game. You have to hold the broom between your legs, which means you only have one hand to do everything else while navigating the pitch.”

As for the ‘snitch’, this is a tennis ball in a sock attached by Velcro to the back of a person, who must run strategically to avoid being caught. “You need to be good at wrestling when you go for the snitch!” says Ruth. “There’s also a lot more cardio involved in the game than many people think.” Nina, Abbey and Ruth all met at USC through playing quidditch: Nina was studying microbiology; Abbey, paramedic science, although she moved to graphic design (and has created the quidditch USC logo), and Ruth was studying town planning and now works for Council. “Most of my friends are from quidditch,” admits Abbey. “We train every week, with tournaments and state level match days and development days.” Australia, already a nation known for its sporting prowess, has been rising in the Quidditch World Cup ranks. “The last World Cup was in Germany in 2016,” says Abbey. “Australia sent the ‘Drop Bears’ over. “The previous time we came second, and the time before, third. in 2016, however, we were in the final against the unbeaten USA - and we won!” This year the Australian team are heading to Florence, italy, in the hopes of

doing one in Kenilworth shortly. it’s something we’re keen to expand upon.” if you are interested in seeing a game of quidditch in action, the Sunshine Coast Fantasy Tournament will be taking place on April 7 and 8 at the USC at Sippy Downs. “All states take part,” Abbey explains, “There are 74 players and six teams playing for a trophy.” “Some players have nicknamed the trophy ‘the Sippy Cup’,” Abbey adds, “but the jury’s out on that!” They all laugh – and this is what appeals to me about quidditch – it sounds active, interesting, but above all FUN. For more information email: QLDAQuidditch@gmail.com or visit USC Quidditch League on Facebook.

defending their title. Abbey narrowly missed out making the team but is training with them as part of their ‘shadow team’. i ask what their families think of all this, and they laugh. “They all thought it was hilarious at first,” says Ruth. “But they are really impressed with what it’s become, they’re pretty stoked.” “My dad loves it,” Nina says, “My older brother joined in and loved it too, but he has to focus on AFL and basketball more.” Apart from being a social and enjoyable sport, quidditch has brought Abbey and Nina together – they are now married and live in Palmwoods. “We met through quidditch!” Abbey laughs. The two are big fans of Harry Potter, despite the sport trying to move away from that image, and they recently won a Harry Potter-themed photo shoot. “it was great fun,” Nina smiles. “We dressed up in robes, played quidditch, posed at the railway station, did lots of Potter images.” Nina even has an impressive left arm covered in Potter imagery, all beautifully inked. “There’s Hogwarts, the Whomping Willow, the Marauder’s Map footprints, a lightning bolt, a Dementor, Sirius Black’s Animaji, a Hippogriff…” Ruth also has a tattoo, although hers a discreet quidditch symbol on her ankle. “My flatmate has one too. Everyone in our share house plays quidditch, so it’s not surprising,” she laughs. As for the future of the game? “We’re not a registered sport yet, as you need a LOT of active members to make it official,” says Abbey. However, the rate at which quidditch’s popularity is growing, this will surely eventuate. “We’ve started ‘kidditch’ at the USC,” says Ruth. “We have teams of 7-10-year-olds, and 11-14-year-olds. We’ve run the game at birthday parties and holiday programs, and we’re

He played at the opening ceremony in Brisbane in ‘82 and the closing ceremony in Glasgow in 2014. And now, this ‘lone piper’ may be seen inspiring the Scottish team at venues on the Sunshine Coast.

HE ROYAL EDiNBURGH Military Tattoo is an annual event that finds me settled in front of the television wishing i was a live spectator. My Celtic ancestry rises up to meet the unique harmonics of the bagpipes. interplay of the melody pipe, the Chanter, against the steadfast background chord of the Drone stirs my emotions at the very core. Gordon Ferguson, proud Scot and piper in two Edinburgh Tattoos shares his lifelong love of the Great Highland bagpipe from his Montville home. “When i was about nine, my father encouraged me to learn a musical instrument. He gave the choice of bagpipes or fiddle. i told him, it’s the pipes or nothing.” Gordon’s piping career began in the early 50s with an esteemed tutor who taught at the College of Piping in Glasgow. “At the age of 11, i joined the 214th Glasgow Company Boys’ Brigade. They had a great set-up teaching kids from scratch through to accomplished players.” Boys’ Brigade imparted life skills to young Gordon. Sunday was Bible class and bagpipe lesson. Week nights were ambulance class, band practice, fireman’s class and Fridays the Boys’ Brigade Company night. Add football on Saturday, leaving no time for a lad to get into mischief. “From mid-May through September we played competitions every Saturday. We won the World Juvenile Pipe Band Championship on a number of occasions. Also, the Highland Shield Competition for the best Boys’ Brigade band in the Glasgow Battalion. We won it 26 times in a row.” Gordon left school at age 15. He began work as a Wages Clerk in the steel industry. “School didn’t resonate with me but once i realised the error of my ways i qualified as an accountant through night school and correspondence.” Soon after Gordon left Boys’ Brigade at age 17 he joined Muirhead and Sons Pipe Band. “The first turnout was the British Championships. Muirheads had never won but they won that day. We went on to play in the World Championships winning the Grade 1 category five years in a row." The calibre of Muirheads was such that they were invited to travel far and wide. Expo ’67 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a Scottish Concert Party to Russia added to their acclaim.

“We also played in the movie ‘Casino Royale’ with Peter Sellers and Ursula Andress. Filming was at Shepperton Studios in London. “Our part was the dream sequence where Ursula Andress saw a pipe band coming towards her out of the mist. She had a set of bagpipes which doubled as a machine gun and shot all the pipers and drummers. it was good fun.” in ’69, Gordon craved adventure. He left Scotland, landed in Australia and settled in Newcastle. His girlfriend joined him and they were married the following year. Scotland and family soon drew the couple back home with their first child. Nine years on they returned to Australia with five children and settled in Brisbane. “Within a couple of days, i was playing with the Queensland irish Association Pipe Band. in ’85, we went to Scotland and Northern ireland winning third place in the World Championships in Grade 2.” in 2001, piping with the Queensland Highlanders saw Gordon Ferguson playing at the Celtic Festival in Lorient, Brittany. “it coincided with the world championships in Scotland. We won Grade 2 which was a great achievement for a little band from Australia.” After receiving a redundancy from his job, Gordon was successful in an application to join the Queensland Police Pipes & Drums. He adds, “i was paid for my hobby for the next six years. “We travelled to Scotland in 2006 and played at the Edinburgh Tattoo. i left the band five years later when we moved to Montville.

“i’d made friends with quite a few of the police bands including the Tasmanian police. i played with them at the 2011 Basel Tattoo in Switzerland and again at the Edinburgh Tattoo, 2014. “it’s hard work. You’ve got a week of rehearsals to prepare for the Tattoo. You know the tunes but you don’t know what they’ve got in mind for the performance so they’ve got to knock you into shape. There are 24 shows over three weeks. “To create atmosphere while we practised they got local kindy kids and people from the old folks’ homes to make an audience around the barrack parade ground.” When one views the Edinburgh Tattoo from a spectator’s seat you hear the sound of a military march. Music swells, cannon roars, then applause as the massed pipes and drums file through the drawbridge. Clan tartans signify a history that speaks of battles won and lost. The bagpipe is the only instrument declared a weapon of war. Gordon shares his experience of being on the other side of the drawbridge: “You stand behind closed doors holding onto your pipes chatting to the boys. Then the call to action. There’s a flurry of activity. Although you’re ready, in a way you’re not because when the cannon goes off you just about jump out of your kilt. “There’s the command, doors open and you’ve got

maybe 13 files of pipers and drummers trying to squeeze through that entry. You can only get six at most side by side. “By the time they fan out onto the esplanade it all looks pretty organised but prior, it’s every man for himself. “One Sunday, supposedly our day off, buses took us to Balmoral Castle to play for the Queen. Afterwards, the pipe and drum majors were taken into the castle and introduced to the Queen and Prince Philip. Ordinary pipers and drummers were shunted off to the army barracks at Ballater, given pie and chips then bused back to Edinburgh.” Although Gordon is retired he occasionally guests with such as the Tasmanian Police Band and Christchurch Metropolitan Pipe Band. He also judges pipe bands and solos in Queensland and New South Wales. Gordon concluded: “i now tutor students and play at weddings, funerals and social events including three gigs on Anzac Day: Montville dawn service, Mapleton at 9.30am and Alexandra Headland for the Korean War memorial service. i love playing at these events because of the surprise, the tears and memories evoked.” Enquiries: 07 5478 5335 http://www.piper.net.au

CHANGING YOUR NAME When you are born, and in this instance say in the State of Queensland, your name is registered with the RegistrarGeneral of Births, Deaths and Marriages and this is then considered your legal name. However there are occasions when a person wants to change their name. Although a person can use another name informally simply by just adopting another name this is not recognized as changing the name legally as the name change has not been registered pursuant to the act that governs this area, namely the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 2003 (Qld) (“the Act”). To formally register a change of name, an application in the relevant form needs to be completed and submitted to the Registrar-General of Births, Deaths and Marriages. As an adult this is a relatively simple process of completing the relevant Form 4 (or Form 5 in some specific circumstances), providing three forms of appropriate identification and photo ID as well as paying the relatively modest filing fee. People are generally entitled to change their name to any name they wish and as many times as they wish however with the following limitations: •

The new name must not be used with the intention of defrauding another person;

The new name must not be considered offensive;

There is only one name change in any one 12 month period.

Changing a child’s first names can only be done once before the child turns one and then a second time but for one occasion only between the age of one and 18 (before the child turns 18). If the child is over the age of 12 then the child’s consent to the name change must also be obtained and noted. If only one parent is requesting the child’s name change then the court’s approval may also be required. The Act will even allow an adult who is not married to make an application to note that person’s “sexual reassignment” – or change of gender - as long as the application is accompanied by two statutory declarations from doctors verifying that the surgery occurred. The old system for formal name change of using deed poll was an expensive and time consuming process requiring the person to obtain approval for the name change from the Supreme Court. This is no longer necessary with the Act providing a process for name change which is vastly improved making it relatively easy, quick and cheap.

Roger Reilly and Ivon Northage celebrated the launch of their collaboration this month

Setting the record


A self confessed ‘mountain tragic’, Ivon Northage doesn’t even own a computer, but has managed to write a book on his beloved mountains. With mixed stories abounding, Ivon has put many hours into faithful and diligent research of all aspects of the Glasshouse Mountains so as to provide the detailed and accurate information that is the basis of The National Heritage Listed Glasshouse Mountains.


HE RECENT BEERWAH Library launch of ivon Northage’s book, The National Heritage-Listed Glasshouse Mountains, is the result of diligent research and a true passion for the place in question. ivon, a great enthusiast of this unique part of Australia, lives in the shadow of Mount Beerwah in the heart of the Glasshouse Mountains. ivon has worked in a voluntary position at Matthew Flinders Park and the Glasshouse Mountains Visitor

information Centres for 15 years and has been called on to provide this information in talks to volunteer and council staff plus various school and community groups. it was only natural that his extensive knowledge should end up in book-form eventually, and the compilation of his work has been beautifully managed by Roger Reilly, with particular emphasis on images and layout. ivon shares, “Roger’s idea that a series of information sheets that i had compiled over the years be extended to a book. His role was in the compilation of the pages and images.” Roger lives in Beerwah and shares ivon’s passion for this very special region of the Sunshine Coast. He is an active committee member of Celebrate Glasshouse Country inc., a community group dedicated to promote Community, Business and Tourism opportunities in the Glasshouse Country region. it is this activity that has motivated Roger to be involved in the evolution and fulfilment of this book as a resource for the community and to promote the Glasshouse Country to all. Rogers explains, "it's a community effort, ivon and i have worked together, so we can have a resource for the community that is researched. A lot of information out there is incorrect. That's been one of the driving factors. “This community initiative has ivon really excited about it - he'll be walking around, holding it high!” This first edition was published in 2018 using a grant provided by the Federal Department of the Environment and Energy under the Community Heritage and icons Grants Program, to assist in raising the awareness of the National Heritage Listing of the Glasshouse Mountains. The National Heritage Listing was formally announced at a ceremony in the heart of the mountains by the then Prime Minister, John Howard on August 3, 2006. in January 2017, Celebrate Glasshouse Country inc. produced a series of short (4-5 minute) videos and accompanying notes entitled “Discover the Glasshouse Mountains”. The notes, in particular, provided a broad outline of the

many intriguing and historic origins of this iconic region in which we live, have visited or are intending to visit. ivon’s publication is not a sequel to those notes, but is intended to elaborate on, and answer questions that have arisen from their release, plus questions that have yet to be asked. The book digs a little deeper into our National Heritage Listing, how a single individual (Beth Hodge) instigated and managed the nomination. “Beth Hodge, was the local researcher behind the application for the National Heritage Listing. This initiative is probably a first for an individual, “ says ivon. You can catch up with Beth in the National Heritage Application chapter. in addition, the book examines those criteria of the National Heritage assessment papers that either passed or failed the threshold test. it begins with the successful criteria and then explains why the other values did not pass muster, but still important to us. Also discussed in-depth is the unique geological origin of the mountains. This is not a history book, but it is about history. History we should be aware of, especially if you live here, and ivon believes we all should take the necessary steps to ensure future generations are fully aware of it. “if you love living here - learn about it, if you learn about it - you’ll love it even more.” We asked Roger, what is it with ‘Ticking all the Boxes’ which is written on the front cover of the book. "’Ticking all the Boxes’ is an ivon thing… and also a chapter in the book." says Roger. The idea, from ivon, is to set up a series of boxes in which to tick your comparisons of highlights in the areas you visit in Australia, and he uses previous chapters as an aid for this small exercise. The end result of doing this? “Having had some time for reflection i would bet that you have not been able to name another place in Australia that ‘ticks all the boxes’,” ivon says, with a smile.

Front Cover of The National Heritage Listed Glasshouse Mountains shows Mount Tibrogargan showing the face of the “Turrawan”, the great man whose name was Brocalpin. Eternally looking out to sea

Copies of The National Heritage-Listed Glasshouse Mountains are available at the Visitor information Centres in Maleny and Glass House Mountains, Mary Cairncross information Centre, Beerburrum Post Office, Beerwah Newsagency and Glasshouse Grind on Steve irwin Way at Glass House. Retail price is $12.

Come honeycombing

in Mapleton! T

HE iDEA OF HONEYCOMBiNG is combining our individual efforts into one abundant hive. inspired by the productive soils of Mapleton and the cost of organic fruit and vegetables, honeycombing uses the surplus from people’s gardens and houses to create a couple of hours of sharing and friendship – and it really works. Based at Mapleton Hall from 9am on the third Wednesday each month, demonstrations are part of the morning and everyone has a special skill or knowledge to share. This month Lynda shows us how to make Kombucha, and parents and caregivers also have a great break while the kids play together. The best part is – NO MONEY! Food can be nourishing, delicious and free. Growing food takes time and work, but Mapleton is renowned for its talented gardeners and rich soils. Honeycombing is also at the Obi Obi Hall on the first Wednesday of each month and is called the “Obi Surplus Enjoyment”. it is hoped that people will make the drive to reap the rewards. Remember, this is about surplus so just bring what you are happy to give away or can’t use. This could be produce, seeds, clothes, toys, tools, books, baked goods or preserves. And if you don’t have anything to give away, just pop in, as we will need someone to take all those unwanted cucumbers!

Fireworks on Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano!

Got a fabulous photo?

HAWAII’S Volcanoes National Park display the results of 70 million years of volcanic migration and evolution. The park highlights two of the world’s most active volcanoes, offering an insight into the birth of the Hawaiian Islands. Vantage points allow you within 600 metres of the lava flow - outside of the park and along the south east edge of Hawaii (referred to by locals as the “big Island”) you can witness fresh lava spilling into the ocean creating giant clouds of steam. It is awe-inspiring to witness the creation of earth! On my first visit to the “big island” I saw Kilauea’s spectacular eruptions as I flew around her rim in a light aircraft – it was thrilling. My travels to Hawaii was part of a land and air tour, exploring all the unique islands. My preference is Kauai, the fourth largest of the group, and known as the Garden Island. Kauai’s volcanic peak Mt. Waialeale is considered to be the wettest place on earth (apart from Maleny). Kauai is covered in lush green tropical vegetation, and hiking along the Kalalau Trail is one of Hawaii’s most spectacular walks. The trail winds along the Napali Cliffs, past cascading waterfalls that drop into the pounding surf below.

Mother’s Day & Sunday Roast Lunches at Pomodoras on Obi

More relaxing is a cruise along the Waimea River to the Fern Grotto, or a swim in one of picture-perfect Kauai’s 43 white sand beaches. And you really must take a helicopter flight over Waimea Canyon.

What better way to tell your mum how special she is than by letting us cook for her and the family.

All visitors to Hawaii arrive on the Island of Ohau and stay around the Waikiki Beach area, with plenty to see and do, before flying to their favourite Island.

Treat the one you love to a delicious Sunday roast lunch this Mother’s Day, Sunday May 13th.

A truly memorable experience is the seven-night inter-island cruise with NCL, visiting the islands of Maui, Hawaii and Kauai, with time ashore to explore and experience the spectacular volcanoes and the verdant beauty of these diverse Islands.

Yes, it’s true, Pomodoras Sunday roast lunches are a very popular winter tradition up here on the Hinterland. Usually kicking off in June, this year Head Chef and Owner, Chris Bond, has decided to start their very popular winter Sunday roast lunches a month early.

Your guide to local wedding services on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

HERE iS A very useful addition to Woombye village centre for anyone who needs pretty much ANYTHiNG printed: Wayne Knetter’s 4CP, which creates and supplies promotional products, stickers, business cards, labels, signs, name badges and much more. Wayne has been a Woombye local for 20 years, after a career which began on-air with radio, crossed over to TV sales and eventually morphed into graphic art! “i had a four-year job setting up the artwork for most for the printers on the coast when the phone numbers all changed to more than six numbers,” Wayne says. “Then i worked for an ad agency in Brisbane as a production manager, graphic artist and pretty much everything else.” Wayne shows me some of his work, with noticeably vibrant colour on a variety of objects and materials, ranging from erasers to signage. “We’re in the digital era now,” Wayne explains. “These are top-line quality results, a world of difference from the old machines.” Wayne prides himself on catering to jobs of any size. “The big boys with big machines don’t really want to do the fiddly stuff and the small runs. One of my machines does unusual objects, such as golf tees, pens, jars, bottles and odd-shaped keyrings.

The Lucky Galah

Woman of Substances

Room on our Rock

by Tracy Sorensen

by Jenny Valentish

it's 1969 and a remote coastal town in Western Australia is poised to play a pivotal part in the moon landing. On the outskirts of town looms the ‘Great Dish’: a relay for messages between Apollo 11 and Houston, Texas. And while Port Badminton is a small rural town in the middle of nowhere, it’s never dull. The Lucky Galah is a novel about fate, about Australia, about what it means to be human and it just happens to be narrated by a galah called Lucky. Lucky tells us the story and we trust her observations implicitly; the narrative is completely believable and totally endearing. This is a wonderful character driven novel, a little bit funny and a little bit nostalgic. Sorensen’s writing is rich in detail and emotional depth.

Jenny Valentish is an Australian journalist, and more importantly a recovering alcoholic. This gripping memoir explores addiction from a particularly female perspective. Valentish points out that most programs for addiction have been crafted from research based on male addiction. Although there are many similarities, there are also some fundamental differences in the how, what and why of women’s addiction. Looking at the latest neuroscience and psychology, Valentish follows the pathways that lead into and out of women’s addictions. From alcoholism to eating disorders and other compulsive behaviours, Woman of Substances shines a light on selfdestructive habits and provides a map to help you get out. A brilliant book for anyone suffering from addictions and for those that loves them.

by Kate & Jol Temple Illustrated by Terri Rose Baynton This is a most delightful picture book with a powerful ‘secret’ message. Reading front to back tells us the story of a band of selfish seals that guard their rock from intruders, “There’s no room on our rock…Shoo! Go away!” But as the old adage says: there are two sides to any story. So, once you have finished reading, you simply start reading again from back to front. Reading the book backwards gives you the opposite story and provides a beautiful, inclusive and welcoming tale, “Make our rock your home ... this rock is ours, you’re welcome here.” The illustrations are sublimely understated and painted in gentle pastel shades that feel quirky and calming. For every copy sold $1 will go to the Refugee Action Support Program.

New owners for


Gallery W

HEN GiLLiAN JAMES started a casual job at Holden’s Gallery in January 2017, she had no idea that in just over a year, she and her husband Gavin would be the new owners.

The James’ are excited to continue the business created by Phil and Jennifer Holden. Phil’s 38-year experience as a framer has made Holden’s Gallery a destination for those seeking bespoke, quality framing. Gillian is a visual artist with an extensive retail history and Gavin is a cartographer, who’s successful business Mapuccino has been operating in Maleny since arriving with Gillian and their twin boys in 2013. Gillian has been trained by Phil,

benefitting from his immense knowledge and skill base, and is confident she can offer customers the level of attention to detail and craftsmanship Phil has instilled in her. While enjoying retirement, the Holdens will be playing with their new toy- a 1979 Morgan sports car and spending more time with their grandkids. Phil will continue to work in the business part time. While continuing to focus on picture framing and artist materials, Gavin and Gillian will offer onsite photo printing and restoration, workshops and online ordering. With their combined experience and plenty of ideas and plans, The James’ can’t wait to get started.

Your baby’s story begins here, with beautiful pictures and lovely keepsakes

Artist of the Month

Greg Adams

Montville art Gallery april 2018


reG ADAMS was born in Melbourne in 1949. His first visit to Queensland as an impressionable lad of thirteen had such an impact on him that he still draws on these early memories when creating his paintings. The timber houses on stilts were exotic and fascinating to him. The warmth of the seas, the blue of the sky and the sweet smell of ripe pineapples are vivid memories. Greg attended the National Gallery Art School between 1967 and 1969. In the early seventies, he travelled and painted in england and europe before moving to Queensland for the first time in 1974. For eighteen months, he lived in a rainforest valley near Port Douglas where the Poinciana's erupt into brilliant orange/red blooms each spring. An indelible image of this lush, tropical landscape is firmly etched into Greg’s psyche. Balconies and verandas where so much of his time was spent, a rug, a cane chair and various cups and bowls which travelled with him, are other recurring images in Greg’s paintings.

NATURAL NEWBORNS MALENY. Award Winning photographer specialising in Newborn, Maternity and Children. Pauline’s classically natural style captures timeless and precious images that last a lifetime.

Natural Newborns Maleny by Pauline Beal

0448 909 560

paulinebeal@outlook.com www.naturalnewbornsmaleny.com

The element of naivety in Greg’s work is deliberate. He paints entirely from memory. His preferred medium is acrylic on canvas and he refers to his style as “formalised realism”. Greg’s paintings are shown permanently at Montville Art Gallery, 138 Main Street, Montville 4560 and are also shown on our website: www.montvilleartgallery.com.au

Correction: ‘Rations and Song’


WRiTE TO PROViDE clarity and correction to a statement made within the article Rations and Song (HT article, February 2018) regarding italian prisoners of war in the Montville area during World War 2. The writer referred to an article ‘Tinned Peaches’ and referenced that this article mentions ‘Farmers and POWs socialising together at Manjalda Guest House’. i interviewed Les Farmer in 2017 about his war time memories and co-wrote ‘Tinned Peaches’. The comment regarding the guest houses in Montville was never connected to the POWs. in ‘Tinned Peaches’, Les Farmer reminisces about several aspects of war time Montville. Regarding the guest houses in

the area, he remembers, “Army and air force personnel would come up to Montville for R & R. They would come up with their girlfriends and then after they left, the pilots would fly over or buzz over Montville to say goodbye to their girlfriends.” (Tinned Peaches) in my research into italian prisoners-of-war in Queensland, there has never been any recollection of farmers disregarding the rules and regulations of employment of italian prisoners of war. Farmers valued their POW workforce as farm labourers were hard to come by. While farmers might have allowed some of the regulations to be ‘softened’ while the italians

were on the farms and out of sight of the general public, they would not have engaged in activities which would jeopardise their employment contract to employ italian prisoners of war. The original article ‘Tinned Peaches’ can be read at italianprisonersofwar.com Rations and Song was an article submitted to Hinterland Times by the Montville Historical Group to out for descendants of italian Prisoners of War, and Montville and Flaxton farmers who housed them. if you can help, contact Cate Patterson cate.patterson@jayb.com.au

HE RECENT ADDiTiON of a labyrinth at C&K Maleny Community Kindergarten, has created a magical new space in the kindy’s beautiful established playground. The patterned stepping-stones encourage children of all abilities to lose themselves while exploring in nature. Labyrinths, which have been a feature of gardens since ancient Greece, are known to reduce levels of anxiety and stress – something that has been a powerful tool over many centuries, through many cultures. The design of the labyrinth was a collaboration inspired by explorations of children, educators and families along with TB Landscaping & Stone, who did a wonderful job of building it. The Maleny community built the Kindergarten over 55 years ago in one weekend. Generations of children from Maleny and surrounding communities have started their learning journey at the kindy. C&K Maleny caters for children aged 3-4, in the year prior to Prep. All enquiries welcomed: phone 5494 2330 or through the website: www.candk.asn.au

Local Native Plants for Your Garden


ON’T USE LOCAL native plants in your garden because it’s the right thing to do, or because it’s good for the environment, or even because it’s good for your karma! Use local native plants in your garden because they are diverse, spectacular, beautiful, habitat friendly and they are true local Aussies! We are fortunate enough to live in one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, we have over three and a half thousand local native plants in south east Queensland and an estimated 1500 plants native to the sunshine coast alone! That’s a lot of diversity and a lot of choice, when it comes to local people choosing local plants for local gardens, did i use local perhaps one too many times ... So, what is it, that stops us all, using local native plants in the garden? Besides ease of availability (that’s where we can help), there is this gaping chasm in our knowledge. A gap in knowledge between what’s in the backyard and what’s in the mysterious bushland beyond, but there are resources and information to remedy that lack of knowledge about our local native flora, we need to challenge ourselves to learn more about our native plants and luckily, it’s never been easier.

Perfect Planting Weather


ESPiTE AN OCCASiONAL outbreak of hot weather, it should start cooling down from now on and with all the rain we’ve had, planting conditions are good to excellent. Some weeds need more drastic control measures, but many can be pulled out by the roots, never to set seed again. Time to finish planting Landholder Environment Grant areas, for those fortunate landholders who received a grant last year, or to plant another Land for Wildlife connector. The garden no doubt needs attention also; weeding, general maintenance and some strategic pruning. it’s a great time of year to be outside. A recent Barung workshop by Greg Smyrell emphasised the importance of understanding soil types and the vegetation communities they support. When we understand those factors, we can make the right species choices for our own land. We will generally want to

experiment with plants which are visually appealing, but experiments don’t always give us the outcomes we might like or expect; ask any scientist. Note the successes and repeat those species, not to the exclusion of all else as diversity is very important, but you will

find that there are key species suited to your land that are different from the key species on other soil types. There will be overlaps but the remnant rainforest on the red soils of the Maleny Plateau differs substantially from the drier remnants of the eastern side of the escarpment on basalt colluvium. Slightly further east and often underlying the basalt are the Landsborough sandstone derived soils which support eucalypt forest. Between the two, wet eucalypt forest with a thick understorey of ferns, vines and palms might be found in moist gullies and valleys. We live in a diverse and fascinating part of the world, hence the remarkable diversity of birds and other wildlife which it is so important to retain and encourage for the enjoyment of our children and grandchildren.

The World Wide Web as always is a great way of tapping into other people’s heads and the stuff they have learned. Great information is becoming available on local native plants in landscaping via google and facebook. These are all free sources of information, which is always a plus! Also with smart phones you can even access these websites and a host of apps when you’re walking in the bush to assist with iD and information as you go. Plant iD apps are also becoming available, they can scan leaves and tell you what you’re looking at, luckily for me they’re not that good locally ... yet. But for many of us, nothing beats a good old-fashioned book, a hard copy for you to digest bite sized bits of knowledge at your leisure and that’s where Forest Heart EcoNursery can also help. Forest Heart Nursery has nearly 50 titles, focusing on native, plants animals, fungi and ecological restoration. So connect with your local flora, go for a walk in your nearest bushland this weekend, with a great flora field guide (or smart phone) Look for plants that you like the look of, take a picture and come and see if we have them in stock or can source and don’t forget to have a leisurely browse around the nursery and check out what other amazing stock is at your fingertips.

Landscapes with LOORS LANDSCAPING Retaining Walls (choosing the right timber) NE OF THE most frequently asked questions when faced with the dilemma of using either treated pine or treated hardwood to construct a timber retaining wall is how long will it last? The answer to this question isn’t at all universal and may vary considerably depending on the particular location and exposure the wall endures during its lifetime. Generally speaking, both treated pine and treated hardwood that has been treated to a H4 standard or above (a rating which deems the timber suitable for external and in ground use) should last equally as long. This being said, the longevity of the retaining wall itself, exclusive of

... landscaping the Range for the past 26 years

natural degradation within the timber depends entirely on the quality of construction, ie; timber sizing, hole depths, drainage, fixings, quantity of unsettled backfill and post spacings etc. Key design factors as those above are essential to consider when planning a timber retaining wall and can each individually become the

making or breaking point of your wall. Keeping in mind that there are other factors to consider such as personal preference in aesthetics between the two timbers, cost and ease of use, and perhaps one of the most pivotal being the availability of quality sustainably grown timbers. Unlike pine, Hardwood is not a sustainable plantation grown timber which has made quality landscape grade hardwood increasingly harder to source. Being more cost effective and easily available, pine might seem like the best option and may just well be but don't rule out a combination of both timbers where load on the wall is a key factor.

’M DEDiCATiNG THiS article to a palm tree at my home. it is a Bangalow, or Picabeen Palm, Archontophoenix cunninghamia. i have been here 28 years, and it was tall when i got here, so i reckon it must be at least 45 years old, and probably a lot older. The amazing thing is, if you look at the photo, you’ll see that more than half of the trunk at the base has been eaten away by white ants. What’s more amazing is that this happened about 15 years ago! This solitary palm has withstood every cyclonic weather event we have endured since then, bending and swaying, sometimes wildly, but never even looking like failing.

it is confounding to me as an arborist, because if i was called to assess a tree like this i would condemn it instantly, but there is an inherent, incredible strength there that defies what my senses, and common sense, tells me. its lichen-encrusted trunk is a joy to behold, the grace of its crown is augmented by the delicate beauty of its racemose floral display, and i am left in awe once again at the mysteries and magic of the plant kingdom, and nature in general. This species is endemic to our plateau, and they look great as a solitary specimen, or planted in groups of three or five.

ALCOLM TURNBULL spent the last week of the current parliament howling at the moon – baying about just how wonderful his corporate tax cuts would be, the remorseless logic of the laws of supply and demand, the purity of Economics 101. There was just one problem: he didn’t have the numbers to pass them, and in spite of his insistence that he would just keep coming back until the senate saw things his way, the fact that he has already been trying for two years suggests that further effort does not look promising. The indefatigable Matthias Corman managed to corral the Hansonites, and a handful of other crossbenches with a combination of arm-twisting, back-handers and essentially whatever it takes - but two, Derryn Hinch and Tim Storer (who?) remained intransigent and despite Turnbull’s determined optimism, it looks likely that they will stay unchanged. in the circumstances. Turnbull ranting away in question time seemed only mildly sillier than the Business Council mounting a television campaign to convince the uninterested masses that when business thrives, the whole country thrives – a line about as convincing as the old slogan “What’s good for General Motors is good for the USA.” The fact that an indignant member has leaked the outcome of a BCA survey that has revealed that if the businessmen ever get their hands on the loot, fewer than a fifth of them will use it to increase jobs, let alone raise wages – they would much rather shovel it out to themselves and their shareholders – suggests that their expensive (but of course tax-deductible) advertising will involve pushing ‘excreta’ uphill. And it got worse when another leak revealed that the BCA crusaders also refused to commit to transparency over their affairs (others might call it simple honesty) or even to paying tax; stronger together indeed. Bill Shorten has promised to repeal any tax cuts that, improbably, the parliament might eventually pass. There has been a bit of confected outrage about sovereign risk – how can businesses prepare for the future if governments keep changing the rules – but under that logic no incoming government could ever change anything that mattered. in any case the bulk of the cuts would not even come through until some years after the next election. All the evidence is that not too many Australian businesses spend a lot of time preparing for the future, so it won’t make much difference. So why does Turnbull keep raising the stakes when everyone else around the table is certain he has

a losing hand? Because, as he kept insisting last week, it is economic orthodoxy, written in stone in Economics 101. And besides, it seems he hasn’t any other ideas. So presumably Corman will reload his carpetbags to be ready for the budget session and keep offering larger and larger concessions and inducements to Hinch and Storer until they fold – while praying that the somewhat tenuous deals he has made with the other crossbenchers will hold firm before they realise that they too can get away with a bit more gazumping as Turnbull scrabbles desperately for a win. But if and when he gets one, then what? if the economy is expected to leap like a startled springbok into vibrant life, scattering jobs, growth and wages in all directions, then think again: any tangible (meaning actually affecting ordinary voters) benefits will be meagre and distant – if they happen at all. So, the spin doctors will need a lot of Viagra to move the masses towards enthusiasm for a policy which they have repeatedly shown they do not really want. And it will not help that the Royal Commission is daily unearthing further atrocities from the big banks – the symbol of fear and loathing, the arch enemy of fairness and equality. it is unlikely that the voters will spontaneously applaud Turnbull when – if – he finally delivers vast sums of money to the bankers who have lied, cheated and defrauded them for years and have finally been hauled to account. Obviously, they have not yet got the message: has there ever been a more egregious example of chutzpah than the Commonwealth Bank, which, while drawing breath between fending off charges of years of blatant corporate chicanery, has found time to withdraw its sponsorship from cricketers who have been involved in ball tampering? But this is the pattern from the big end of town and its political supporters: they are above the rules, beyond the normal standards they preach with such unctuous determination. it is not just the culture of the Australian cricket team that needs an urgent renovation. Until Turnbull faces the complexities of a culture in which the politics transcend Economics 101, he will continue to struggle, and probably fail. Yes, there is a class war, the one Turnbull and his millionaire mates have dominated so effortlessly and so long. But by so blatantly taking the side of the rich and powerful, his attempts to gain favour with the rest looks both like humbug and futility.

Landholders have a legislative responsibility to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program is an effective way to help meet this responsibility. The Wild Dog Baiting Program will be held throughout Bald Knob, Beerburrum, Beerwah, Belli Park, Bells Creek, Cambroon,

His current attempt is to search out the elderly and income poor to claim that Shorten’s revised tax plan will reduce them to penury. Using this tactic on real pensioners showed promise until Shorten declared blanket exemption from them, so Turnbull moved on the so-called self-funded retirees, some of whom are indeed income poor. The problem is that they are, by definition, asset rich – otherwise they would be entitled to the pension. it is difficult to imagine that the battlers will have much sympathy for those who have engineered their tax affairs to retain a million or more in shares and super. Shorten has warned that the next election will be a referendum on tax. Turnbull can hardly deny it; assuming that Hinch and Storer cannot be bribed into submission, the choice will be between Turnbull’s cash splash for the companies or Shorten’s removal of some of the perks of the profligate Howard fat years, to make way for tax cuts and social programs to benefit those in greater need – not to mention the chance of reducing a chunk of the long-running deficit. Put that way (which is how Shorten and his allies will undoubtedly put it) Turnbull will need all his agility, nimbleness and legendary talent for innovation. Which means that his current strategy – shouting into the empty ether that the coalition wants you all to be unimaginably rich, honestly, truly, while Labor wants to steal your savings and flush them down the toilet – may not be sufficient. The views expressed in Mungo's column are his and not necessarily the views of the HT team.



What on earth is that? Have you ever found a really odd (interesting) bug? Or an especially bizarre fungus that resembles a cage? A plant with a leaf reminiscent of a candle flame? And wondered, what on earth is that? On Saturday April 7 we will be holding an event at the Maleny Community Centre that we anticipate may resolve such conundrums. Bring it along and be prepared for our panel, Michelle Gleeson (the Bug Lady and author of Miniature Lives; www.bugsed.com), Frances Guard (co-author of Australian Sub-tropical Fungi), and Wayne Webb (Barung Production Nursery Manager), to astound you with their brilliance and breadth of knowledge. You will have five minutes with the panel member of choice who will (hopefully) identify your specimen and tell you a story about it. Phone the Barung office 5494 3151 by April 5 to register. Morning tea will be provided and the event is free. if you wish to bring specimens in more than one category (e.g., a bug and a fungus) you will need to register twice, selecting the relevant categories. You may bring up to three specimens in each category (bugs, fungi or plants). This workshop is supported by the Burnett Mary Regional Group, through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Programme. Reconciliation brings grants A new $100,000 funding initiative will help more Queensland communities celebrate National Reconciliation Week (May 27 – June 3, 2018). This year’s theme for National Reconciliation Week – Don’t Keep History a Mystery – encourages everyone to join the reconciliation journey. Grants of up to $2,500 are available for grassroots events and applications close Friday April 13, 2018. For more information or to apply, visit www.qld.gov.au/reconciliationgrants

HE CRYSTAL WATERS Market is back on Saturday, April 7, and every first Saturday of the month! Come down to this market to hear the last amplified Open Mic session and to have a sticky beak at the new Flowerpot Coffee Shop, located on the Community Deck in the Village Green.

In April, we introduce a local physiotherapist, triathlon and festival. Wendy explains how weather influences our health and Marisa expounds the benefits of fresh foods ...

People around the globe are

“waking up” W

E ARE BECOMiNG more aware, or conscious of the reality that there is more to life than our physical selves and surroundings. For some it may be experienced as a sudden insight initiated by a traumatic event or illness.

For others it may be more subtle, such as an increasing disillusionment with world events and our consumptionorientated society, or perhaps a general sense of “there must be more to life than this”. Your “awakening” will often spark an exploration of spirituality, intuition and a deep enquiry into your life’s purpose. The ideal way to inspire and stimulate your awakening or awakened consciousness is by exploring these topics with those on the same path - spiritual teachers, intuitive readers, personal development experts and other likeminded folk. The annual Discovery Expo on April 28-29 from 9.30am4.30pm at Lake Kawana Community Centre, was created to support your journey of self-discovery and spiritual evolution.

Providing much-needed clarity and direction, Discovery is a weekend of inspiration, learning and guidance

The Weather


N DiFFERENT CULTURES people deify the elements, worshipping the sun and dancing for rain but on the whole we are the mercy Wendy Rosenfeldt of the weather. How the weather impacts on us depends on our nature and our imbalances and can be understood by the Ayurvedic knowledge of doshas. Vata dosha is light, dry, quick, cold and changeable in nature. it is stronger in winter and cold, dry winds can cause an increase in the qualities of Vata in our physiology. People with more Vata in their nature generally dislike winter preferring warm, humid, stable weather. Vata types are lighter in build, have the tendency towards dry hair and skin and their digestive and sleep cycles are more easily upset then Pitta or Kapha types. Being more changeable themselves by nature, Vata predominants find windy weather and days that go from cold to hot, rainy to sunny in a short space of time aggravating. Unsettled weather can increase insomnia, indecisiveness and feeling spaced out. Vata increases in the physiology as we age. Brittle bones, stiff joints, light sleep and low digestion are all symptoms of Vata out of balance and are found to develop as we get older. Retirees try to balance this by spending time in warmer climates during winter. in Vata weather it is important to wear a hat and shoes, favour warm, cooked meals and stay hydrated. While Vata types may yearn for the Summer sun, Pitta people prefer the cool of Winter. The heat and intensity of Pitta dosha is exemplified in the fire of the sun. People who have a Pitta constitution find the Summer months a test and can feel their

tempers fray more easily. Excess Pitta can cause skin rashes, hot flushes, irritability and impatience. Swimming, eating sweet fresh fruit such as watermelon or grapes and taking time out to be in nature is a great way to soothe the excess heat of hotter months. Cold, damp, rainy weather increases Kapha in the mind and body. Pitta types love the freshness and as long as it isn’t too cold Vata types enjoy the moisture of rainy climates. For people who portray the cool, heavy, stable qualities of Kapha in their physiology, this type of weather can feel depressing and cause lethargy. Kapha natured people are generally more sensitive to smells and can react to mould and pollen in the environment. Hay fever and congestion are more prominent in Spring when the new growth is taking place. Spring is governed by Kapha and while the heaviness and sweetness in the air can be heavenly to light, changeable Vata types, it can cause congestion and bronchial problems for Kapha natured people. Staying active and avoiding cold, heavy foods is important when the weather is damp and cool. Warming spices such as ginger, cloves and cinnamon help to create some internal heat to offset excess Kapha in your mind and body. Ayurvedic helps us to understand the influences on us from food, climate, daily and seasonal cycles and how to create balance in our mind and body. Wendy Rosenfeldt is a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner and teacher of Transcendental Meditation. To find out more call 5499 9580 or email wendy.rosenfeldt@tm.org.au

Food Glorious Food


ELL iT USED TO BE ANYWAY. While i truly believe that consciousness is a great healer and plays a vital role in our health and well being, food, whilst having a profound affect on our body chemistry and therefore our physical health, is also a great influencer of our consciousness. We learn more quickly than we realize, repetitive advertisements and habits take root in our minds often prompting our choices and decisions without us even questioning why we do what we do. Little by little our clarity of choice and our acceptance of more and more changes to our food production almost goes unnoticed. We are magnificently designed for health and longevity. Food is meant to nourish and heal the body. Fresh food simply prepared can be a joy to the senses, firstly because it tastes good, and secondly because we often see such quick results as the body uses the pure nourishment contained in fresh organic unprocessed foods to reinstate health and vitality. Unfortunately there are now many highly processed “foods” on the market promoted as health foods. i believe you’re better off to have a natural product than a created “healthy”product. We are meant

to thrive at any age, we are meant to enjoy health, vitality, a clear mind and a well balanced personality. Today cancer is common not only in humans, but in our dogs, cats and even in nature. We often speak of toxins in our modern world and the burden they place on our organs but perhaps if we learnt to use what nature provides us in terms of what we eat, then these things would not have so much power to diminish our well being. Learn to use herbs and spices to bring flavour and medicinal properties to your meals. Just one simple action like using a healthy salt “i prefer Celtic salt” which contains about 84 different natural chemicals, can lift and balance your digestive integrity and enhance your ability to absorb nutrients more efficiently, while at the same time, chelating and eliminating old harmful salt deposits out of the body. its amazing how making little changes can confer such peace, well being and regeneration to our bodies.

New physio helps vertigo, dizziness or balance problems


iTH CLiNiCS across Brisbane, for over a year now Meg Richards has called Reeseville home, and now offers Vestibular Rehabilitation at Maleny Physiotherapy. "it's quite a different area - it is not manual, more problem solving - for vertigo, dizziness and balance." When Meg started her own business, Equilibrium Physiotherapy, in 1999 she was one of the first physiotherapists in Queensland to specialise in this area. She found her clients, who have quite complex or chronic conditions, improve - outcomes are really good. "Some conditions require a home program - where your brain is trained to respond differently. it is not arduous or difficult - and you come back for assessments and updates." The second type of treatment is quite common and does not require ongoing exercises. "Positional vertigo or BPPV, commonly known as "ear rocks", involves one treatment, occasionally two, with manoeuvres using a series of head positions and gravity. "Because BPPV can reoccur, i also give instructions for you at home. Some people like to manage it themselves.” Although more physiotherapists are trained in this field now, it is not very common. Meg receives referrals from throughout Queensland, Northern Territory and New

South Wales - but we can access Meg's expertise right here on the Hinterland. Make an appointment Friday mornings with Meg through her Moorooka office on 07 3342 4378, or visit http://equilibriumrehab.com.au to find out more.
