Australia’s favourite and most prolific artist will storm the stage armed with his live band and a number of special guests including his immensely talented daughter (and legend in her own right) Mahalia Barnes. Also opening up on a selection of dates will be Barnes’ second eldest daughter Eliza-Jane and her musical partner Ceci who create brilliant and unique music as Evil J & Saint Cecilia. Jimmy continues to rule supreme as Australia’s undisputed king of rock. His extraordinary career as both a solo performer and as the lead vocalist with the legendary Cold Chisel has made Jimmy one of the most popular and highest selling Australian music artists of all time. He can also lay claim to an incredible 13 #1albums across his career. WELCOME TO THE PLEASURE HOUSE will take in some areas he hasn’t visited for some time. Jimmy kicked off 2013 tearing up the stage alongside ‘The Boss’ – Bruce Springsteen at his Hanging Rock ‘Wrecking Ball’ shows. Now, in addition to working on material for a forthcoming album, Barnes is geared up to bring his iconic live show packed with all the hits to his fans Australia-wide. “I am writing songs for a new album at the moment and I thought it might be nice to give fans a taste of things to come,” Jimmy said.

TRAVEL BUG BITES

COFFS CARTOON CAPITAL BY FRAN STEPHENSON

I

s it something to do with the iconic Big Banana that makes the people of Coffs Harbour laugh so much? Well it is shaped like a big cheesy grin. But more likely it’s because Coffs Harbour is the home to one of the largest collections of cartoons in the world and that’s plenty to laugh about, or at. Coffs Harbour, the major city on the Coffs Coast in northern New South Wales is one of Australia’s foremost holiday destinations. However, although known for its natural beauty, visitors don’t come to the area for this alone. As home to Australia’s only dedicated cartoon gallery - the Bunker Cartoon Gallery - Coffs Harbour is recognised as the nation’s cartoon capital. Cartoon lovers visit in droves for a good healthy chuckle and a dose of fun and laughter. Constructed in 1943 during World War 2, the underground bunker building was once used as an underground air force communications facility and played a vital role in protecting aircraft and shipping along the east coast of New South Wales. After the war the bunker continued to be used by the Department of Civil Aviation up until 1980 then, having outlived its usefulness, it became a redundant, derelict piece of Australia’s war time history. Around that time the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour City was running a cartoon

competition in which the entered works were donated to form the Coffs Cartoon Collection. Local Rotarian and avid cartoon collector, the late John Champion, saw the disused bunker as an ideal home for the growing collection and as they say ‘the rest is history’. On August 24, 1996, the Bunker Cartoon Gallery officially opened its doors as Australia’s first and only dedicated cartoon gallery – a title which it still proudly holds today. The Bunker now houses the bulging Coffs Cartoon Collection which consists of over 17,000 cartoons, most of which are original works, from leading Australian and international cartoonists. The Collection is considered to be the largest, most comprehensive cartoon collection in the southern hemisphere and one of the largest cartoon collections in the world. It includes works dating back as far as 1931 and amongst its treasures are works from all five of the cartoonists of the iconic Australian comic strip, Ginger Meggs, which span 90 years. This year the Rotary celebrates its 25th anniversary and cartoonists from all over Australia will descend on Coffs Harbour for a weekend of cartooning fun to be held October 25, 26, and 27. Laughter is mandatory. Visit www.rotarycartoonawards.com.au n

Located on Missenden Road in the heart of Newtown, Miss Peaches is a blues infused bar offering music, rustic cocktails and an authentic menu of home cooked southern soul food! With an eclectic mix of vintage lounges, patchwork print banquettes, traditional paintings and neon signage, Miss Peaches brings you the down and dirty grit of Bourbon Street’s most authentic drinking establishments without the 17 hour flight.

Miss Peaches

kitchen from the quintessential fried chicken and grits and gravy to gumbo, po’boy sliders and okra jambalaya. There are even vegan options if you fancy, but make sure you leave some room for a slice o’ sweet pie at the end. If a drink is what you’re after , Miss

The Spice Cellar

Peaches has got you covered there too with an excellent selection of bottled beers and wine, mostly hailing from California and New York, with a couple of Aussie favourites thrown into the mix. It’s the cocktails though, that really set this place apart. From the rum and raisin root beer float, grape drank, Atlanta Fanta and hot buttered pumpkin rum, each one needs to be sipped to be believed! Miss Peaches also has a DJ booth with handpicked and dance floor tested tunes spun by the likes of DJ Grits, which are sure to get you stompin’and wailin’. So come on down to Miss Peaches and soak up some of that Southern Hospitality!

The Spice Cellar If a little European jaunt is more your style, why not take a trip to The Spice Cellar.


Nestled within the basement of the Overseas Union Bank building in downtown Sydney lies this unique underground oasis dedicated to late night drinking, dining and entertainment. Inspired by the tapas eateries in Barcelona, cocktail bars in Amsterdam and nightclubs in Berlin, The Spice Cellar seamlessly fuses music, drinks, art, fashion, design and food. The Spice Cellar is a playground for adults, transforming from lounge and tapas bar during the week to a pulsing nightclub over the weekend with high profile DJ’s mixing from the booth. The venue itself is a Pandora’s Box of nooks and casual settings, with scattered lounge seating and coffee tables offering a wide variety of set up’s for events or parties with food and drink menus customised to every budget and scale. For the midweek dining crowd, all drinks run two-for-one from 5pm to 7pm daily, offering the perfect after work destination. All cocktails are made from only the finest and freshest ingredients including home-made ginger beer and fresh juices. Whether you’re stopping by at 4pm or 4am, chances are you’ll find what you’re looking for! You might not know it’s there from the street, but perhaps as you walk by you’ll catch a sniff of spice-laden air or a hint of jazzy tunes wafting up from the basement to the sidewalk. The Spice Cellar’s secrets are out, come downstairs and taste them.

Afous If you’re craving something a little more exotic, and don’t mind a bit of a drive from downtown, Afous is the restaurant for you! Boasting an enviable position on the The Spit in Mosman, Afous is the latest culinary vision of reknowned restaurateur Omar Maldji. Seamlessly blending the sensual flavours’ of North Africa with the sumptuous savoury style of Southern Spain, Afous aims to introduce Sydney siders to the tantalising aromas of Moroccan cuisine. Afous

A Berber name hailing from Omar’s parents’ tribe in Morocco, Afous literally means “perfume of life” – an apt name for the aromas wafting from the kitchen! There’s a range of tapas options for light eaters such as Moroccan meatballs or herb scented tomato bread and for those with a more hearty appetite try the seafood paella, the fish tanjine or the lamb, slowly simmered in spices and honey. Yum! The deserts offer another sensory vacation with exciting twists on some old favourites like the orange blossom panna cotta! Enveloped in a warm fit out, rich in recycled wood, Afous prides itself on the old world charm and eco-friendly details of the restaurant. No detail is left out, from entrance through a beautiful reconstructed church door down to the business cards which are printed on recycled paper. Starting in July, Afous also introduced candlelight nights every Tuesday of the month to save energy – and create the perfect atmosphere for a date night! Omar’s recreation of the authentic Moroccan experience through the design, the food and the service is all part and parcel of why Afous ranks among the best. Book now for a memorable dining experience, complete with flavours straight from a foodie’s dream! n

YOUR WELLBEING

Eat fibre and lots of it WITH SAIMAA MILLER - NATUROPATH, NUTRITIONIST, DETOX SPECIALIST, HERBALIST AND HEALTH COACH. WWW.AUSSIEBODYDIET.COM less likely to feel hungry and want to snack. Even better still, high fibre food is low in fat and high in lots of healthy nutrients, therefore a major preventative to a myriad of diseases ranging from digestive dysfunction to hormonal issues. There are compounds called isoflavonoids and lignans found in fibre that will cleanse the body of harmful toxins, and even inhibit cancer growth. Dietary fibre is essential for health and can only be found in plant foods – animal foods such as meat, cheese and eggs have no fibre. Did you also know that fibre is a carbohydrate and can’t easily be digested, so it does not contribute to the calorie intake of the diet. There are two major types of fibre – soluble and insoluble.

F

ibre is a super food. It keeps our elimination channels healthy, increases our satiety (feeling of fullness) so we are

SOLUBLE FIBRE Soluble fibre is often described as mucilaginous or slippery since it has the capacity to carry lots of water thereby forming a gel. This can help

lower LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol, while maintaining HDL (‘good’) cholesterol and help constipation or the symptoms of irritable bowel. Soluble fibre is found in fruit and vegetables, some cereals (eg. oats, barley), psyllium, linseed, slippery elm and in legumes (dried peas, beans and lentils). INSOLUBLE FIBRE Insoluble fibre is often described as ‘roughage’. This fibre is more resistant to digestion, and is fermented by bacteria to produce special fatty acids for the health of the gut wall. Insoluble fibre is found mainly in wholegrain foods (especially wheat bran and rice bran), the skins of fruits and vegetables, nuts and dried beans. It helps prevent constipation by producing bulky stools and speeding bowel transit time. RESISTANT STARCH Resistant starch is found in whole grains, cold cooked potatoes, lentils, and firm bananas. Resistant starch is fermented in the gut, resulting in beneficial effects on the bowel and blood cholesterol levels. n

Give this a try!

Asparagus and poached eggs 1 meal 2 free-range or organic eggs 1 tablespoon white vinegar 1 slice spelt or multigrain bread 5 pieces asparagus, ends trimmed 1⁄2 lemon for squeezing Handful of rocket (arugula) or watercress leaves, washed and dried 1 tablespoon shaved parmesan cheese Pinch of Celtic sea salt Cracked black pepper Place a saucepan with a steamer over medium heat and half fill with boiling water. This is to cook the asparagus while your eggs are poaching. Break the eggs into a cup to ensure the yolks are intact. Fill a deep-sided saucepan with at least 10 cm (4 in) of simmering water. Add the vinegar to the water. Stir the water with a spoon, creating a small whirlpool. Drop the eggs one at a time into the centre of the whirlpool. The water will settle and the eggs should form an oval. While

the eggs are cooking, chargrill or toast the bread. Place the asparagus in the steamer for 90 seconds. Remove pan from heat and squeeze lemon juice on top of asparagus. Place toast on a plate and arrange the watercress or rocket (arugula) leaves and asparagus on top. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and drain well. Place the eggs on the toast and asparagus, sprinkle with the parmesan shavings and season with Celtic salt and cracked black pepper.

FIGHTING FIT

Get Fighting Fit! (And learn some kickass moves in the process)

I

f you want to cut the fat, work off the after work beers and get yourself some abs then a simple at home boxing circuit can work wonders and have you on your way to a Hugh Jackman 6 pack in no time.

Warm up Skip for 2 minutes – If you don’t have a skipping rope (go buy one!) or just imagine you have one in your hands and make the full actions as if you are skipping with a rope– your body will receive the same benefits.

Shadow box with a 1 jab & cross Throw your jab then your cross, pause, then repeat the movement. Do this for 2 minutes making sure you are keeping your core tight and putting power into the punches. But don’t overextend your arms or you will do damage to your shoulders. Make sure once you throw your jab you bring your fist straight back to just below your chin and do the same with your cross.

2 Star jumps Begin in a relaxed stance with your feet together and your arms by your side. To begin the move, jump your legs wide apart while at the same time bringing your arms touching over your head and return to your starting position. Repeat without stopping for 1 minute. Push yourself – move as quick as you can and keep your arms straight touching your hands together overhead.

3 Shadow box with uppercuts Get your stance, engage your core and stand strong, then use your left hand to throw an uppercut, then the right hand. Pause and reset then repeat. Continue for 2 minutes. Remember boxing is all about technique the better your technique the better your workout.

4 Push-ups Lie flat on the floor with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Tuck your toes so they are under your feet. Raise your body up off the floor by pushing your body up, extending your arms and keeping your body straight. Return to the start touching your chest to the ground briefly then push straight back up again. Repeat for 1 minute.

6 Squats

Shadow box 5 with hooks

Stand up straight chest up, shoulders back. Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Your hips should be stacked over your knees and your knees over your ankles. Extend your arms straight out in front of you so they are parallel to the ground, palms facing down, keep your head facing forward and look straight ahead. Take your hips back while you bend your knees; imagine you are sitting in a chair. Remember your knees should not extend past your toes. Press your weight back into your heels and push through your heels to bring yourself back to your starting position, standing upright. Squeeze your butt and legs throughout the movement and go deep. Feel the burn. Do this for 2 minutes, no rest.

Get your stance, engage your core and stand strong. Left hand throws a hook which is a punch at 45 degree angle, and then your right hand throws a hook. Pause reset. Go again. Continue for 2 minutes.

7 Crunch Start lying flat on your back with your knees up and your hands behind your head. Use your abdominals to crunch up. Don’t pull on your head or neck as you lift up. Do this for 2 minutes.

Boxing Circuit Intensity Beginners Level – Shadow box with no dumbbells, push-ups and plank can be done on your knees Intermediate Level – Shadow box with dumbbells, push-ups and plank on toes -complete the boxing circuit twice.

8 Plank Lie face down on floor. Make a triangle by placing your palms on the floor and resting on your forearms. Make sure your elbows are under your shoulders. Push off the floor rising up onto your toes keeping your back flat and in a straight line from head to heels. Tilt your pelvis and contract your abdominals to prevent rear end from sticking up in the air or sagging in the middle. Hold for 1 minute.

Advanced Level – Shadow box using heavier dumbbells, push-ups and plank on your toes and bring one foot off the ground (alternate feet), add dumbbell to your squat and increase the time completing each activity. Complete the boxing circuit three times. Tip – record how many star jumps, push ups and squats you do in the allocated time and try to beat your number in your next round of the boxing circuit or next training session. Stay tuned for boxing part 2 next edition! Boxing Circuit courtesy of Brisbane Boxing Studio, Fitclub. Visit www.fitclub.net.au

CHIT CHAT

Vance Joy INFLIGHT PUBLISHING WRITER OLIVIA LEACH HAD A CHAT TO MELBOURNE SINGER/SONGWRITER VANCE JOY ABOUT HIS RECENT SUCCESS WITH ARIA TOPPING SINGLE ‘RIPTIDE’.

S

o first off, Your EP God Loves You When You’re Dancing, and specifically your song ‘Riptide’ has become a tremendous hit. How did it feel when the song started topping the charts? Did you expect this sort of success? No I didn’t at all. I had a good feeling about the songs as I was writing them. They were catchy but I wasn’t expecting this much success. But I guess you just put something out into the universe with the hope that other people will like it.

Kimberley Fishing and Diving

You performed at Splendor this year and I heard you packed out the GW Mckellen stage on the Saturday. What was that experience like? It was really cool, so many people turned up! I normally perform to a crowd of around 300 people so splendor was definitely a step up. The whole tent was full of people and I was standing back stage watching the performances before me, getting more and more nervous. It was hectic. You’ve had a hectic couple of months, performing across the US and Canada as well as Australia, do you get a different reaction from the crowd overseas then you do at home in Australia? Well of course there is a lot more awareness here but it’s also nice to perform to a crowd who doesn’t know you. It’s kind of cool to be anonymous. The performance feels fresher. Not so much pressure! Also even though they didn’t know me, music is universal. A good melody connects to everyone on different levels.

Sep-Nov is when the fishing and Rowley Shoals diving are best in the Kimberley. 5 nights starts at $3290 pp

This month you’ll be on the road with your own ‘Riptide’ tour which is soon to be sold out. What can fans expect from the tour? Well this tour is me and also my band. I’ve got a couple of new songs that I’m going to perform which aren’t on the EP so no one will have heard those yet. And, of course there will be all the songs from my EP. My band and I have been working a lot together lately so we are definitely getting more comfortable performing which should make a difference in this tour. I can imagine you’ve got a busy year ahead of you, what else have you got planned? Can we expect new releases from Vance Joy any time soon? Well an album is definitely on the cards; hopefully I will be releasing a new album sometime next year. I’ve been working a lot on writing new material and also rehearsing with the band. That’s probably the two main things on the agenda. n

An expo with a difference

P

apua New Guinea is a country of contrasts. Made up of over 600 islands located within the Coral Triangle of the South Pacific, from the white sandy beaches and aqua coloured water of New Ireland, to the active volcano and rich war history of Rabaul in East New Britain, PNG is a country so diverse, so beautiful and yet still vastly un-explored. With a rich history and culture, and now a booming mining and industrial scene, PNG is officially putting itself on the map. And many individuals, workers and businesses are jumping on the train that leads right into the heart of PNG’s mining and resources industry. >>

The Cairns region in Queensland sits at the gateway to PNG and the Asia Pacific, and has built a long standing and well developed trade relationship with PNG. This was demonstrated at the second annual Australia & PNG Mining Resources Exhibition which took place in June this year with the many and varied exhibitors offering their services, products and expertise. With more than 1300 attendees and 150 exhibitors, the second annual Australia & PNG Mining Resources Exhibition was a huge success. With support from businesses across Australia and PNG, expo goers were shown the latest and greatest in products and services available to the mining and resources industry. The Fred Moule Building at the Cairns Showgrounds was full over the two days in June and the hustle and bustle of the expo was exciting for all. Especially for event Organiser Keryn Haynes who said she was really happy with the result. “We increased our exhibitors by nearly 50 this year and it was great to have the building filled. We also had external sites in the arena with a great mix of goods on display ranging from solar panels and communications systems

to transportable homes and high powered machinery,” Keryn said. “And inside we offered a fabulous setting on a mezzanine level where exhibitors could entertain potential clients in a relaxed atmosphere on a more personal level.” This year’s expo attracted representatives of

the mining and resources industry from Papua New Guinea and Australia including delegates from Ok Tedi, Barrick, Morobe Mining Joint Venture, MMG, Century Mine, Newcrest, and Rio Tinto to name a few. “We are hoping next year’s expo will have the same great support from businesses but also an increase in support from people coming along to view the products,” Keryn said. “We want to keep growing bigger and better and there is already a lot of interest for 2014.” Events such as the Expo not only demonstrate the region and industry’s broad capabilities and innovation, but also provide visitors and exhibitors with an effective way of making new contacts, meeting old friends and finding solutions to their needs. Cairns is located 1.5 hours from Port Moresby with over 24 direct flights a week, and good connections to the rest of PNG. Flight schedules enable a cost effective full business day trip. Direct charters also operate from Cairns. For information, including details on how you can become an exhibitor or register as a delegate at next year’s Expo, visit www.tradeshoworganisers.com.au or phone Keryn on 07 3891 7793.

The high FIFO divorce rate is a myth, but the challenges are a reality when families separate

MENTION FIFO IN GENERAL CONVERSATION AND INVARIABLY THE TOPIC OF DIVORCE AND SEPARATION COMES UP. IT SEEMS ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION ABOUT MINING BEING BAD FOR MARRIAGES - BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS THE REALITY? TO UNCOVER THE FACTS AND UNDERSTAND HOW SEPARATION AND DIVORCE AFFECT FIFO FAMILIES, HERE'S EXPERIENCED PERTH FAMILY LAWYER CATHERINE LEACH...

T

here is a common misconception that the divorce rate among fly-in-fly-out (FIFO) workers is higher than the rest of the population. Although one study found that the rate of divorce after starting work in WA mining was 7 per cent for FIFO workers (as compared to 5 per cent of workers living in the city) this is still much less than the 30 per cent that's often suggested in the media. A 2009 study by Lindsay Greer at CQ University showed the divorce and separation

rate at 11.26 per cent across all industries, and actually lower in mining at 11.15 per cent. This tells me two things. Firstly, statistics can tell you anything you want to hear if you set the parameters of the question the 'right' way. But there are also clear indications that divorce is not the cancer of the resources industry that some headline-makers want us to believe.

The court is also increasingly sensitive to the

MEDIATION FIFO families might be no different in a statistical sense, but they certainly have different needs and challenges and family lawyers need to be sensitive to these. While mediation is compulsory for almost all divorces involving children there is mediation and then there is mediation! We encourage FIFO families to utilise a reputable mediation and counselling service to deal with the change. A good family lawyer will encourage this process and feed outcomes back into the legal arrangements being agreed.

FIFO lifestyle. They are used to dealing with various rosters and how FIFO work operates generally. An experienced family lawyer will always ask you for a copy of your roster and discuss with you the options available to assist your family to restructure after a separation.

What life's really like for the partner at home (newsflash: it’s no picnic!) BY MININGFM CO-FOUNDER ALICIA RANFORD

I

t's not a competition. We're BOTH exhausted! It's fair to say that until I visited a mine site, it was hard to truly understand what an average day was like for my husband. Once I'd made the trip - and in the space of just 24 hours - I understood about the isolation, the long days, where he slept, ate and socialised and what the journey to and from the mine was like. The experience made me a more considerate and understanding partner. After seeing an operating mine and camp with my own eyes, I was finally able to make sense of the mood swings before he headed back to work, and his inability to make regular, lengthy calls while he was away. One little problem remained ... how to make him understand what life was like for me while he was away at work! We have two beautiful kids and I work part time. Life is hectic. Breakfasts, lunches, take kids to school, work, pay the bills,

pick kids up from school, after-school commitments (I should be eligible for a taxi license). Then there's the washing, ironing, cleaning, shopping, helping the kids with their homework ... and don't forget to feed the animals (bugger), tidy up the house and fall into bed. Don’t get me wrong - I love it. But let’s be honest: sometimes it can be a lot like ground hog day, and it's a side of life the worker away doesn’t really see. When he's home on FIFO R&R, there's the special meals, fun times catching up with family and friends, avoiding the more boring household chores and generally making life as fun as possible. It’s totally understandable. When you don’t get to hang out as a family every day, you want the 'together' times to be as fun as possible. Unfortunately this often leads to misunderstandings, because the worker away can forget that R&R isn’t reality. My advice for both parties is to remember that it isn’t a competition. You are both

VISIT WWW.MININGFM.COM.AU exhausted and ultimately working towards the same goal. My husband and I are aiming to get the mortgage down, save for the future, finish landscaping the garden, give the kids the best start in life and help them excel at school. We both want the same things and both have a role to play in achieving them. It is not about who works harder, because let’s face it - both roles are hard and exhausting. So remember... • Take the time to explain what life is like while you are apart. Don’t play 'tit for tat', just explain what you find difficult. • We all like a little praise now and then. Acknowledge that your other half is working hard and that you love and appreciate them for it. • Reward yourselves. If you manage to pay some extra cash off the mortgage or have spent the last two months working hard to finish off a home project, treat yourselves to a night out. n

ne of the greatest shows in world motorsport will land in the Coffs Coast on September 12-15. Coates Hire Rally Australia will bring the world's best rally drivers for Round 10 of the FIA World Rally Championship. Widely regarded as the most challenging international motorsport series, the FIA World Rally Championship takes drivers and cars on an epic adventure to 13 countries in 2013. Roads range from the ice and snow of Scandinavia to the rocky tracks of Greece and massive high-speed jumps of Finland to the unique forest and rural stages of the New South Wales Coffs Coast. Australia’s “other” FIA World Championship event, alongside the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, will tackle more than 350 kilometres of competition stages on the scenic forest tracks and rural roads of the Coffs Coast region. Australia is one of 13 countries that host the WRC and since 1988 has carried a reputation for extreme excitement and outstanding organisation.


Up to 100 cars, including around 30 from top overseas teams, are expected to contest the event, which runs over three nights and three days. Driving stars including Sebastien Ogier (France), Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala (Finland), Evgeny Novikov (Russia), Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi (Abu Dhabi) and Dani Sordo (Spain) will thrill spectators with their high-speed skills on the daytime rural Special Stages and nightly ARMOR ALL Super Special Stage. Spectating will be easy at almost 30 dedicated points on the daytime Special Stages all less than an hour’s drive north, west or south of the Coffs Harbour base. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, the Rally Hub at Brelsford Park near the Coffs CBD hosts the arena-style ARMOR ALL Super Special Stage, entertainment and the busy teams’ Hi-Tec Oils Service Park. The stars of the WRC will display their dazzling driving skills on the ARMOR ALL Super Special Stage course every night at Brelsford Park and during the day on traditional rally stages on forestry and rural roads. Stunt pilots, singers and the world’s fastest rally drivers will combine to make Coates Hire Rally Australia a spectacular and entertaining experience.
