It seems winter has finally arrived, although we never know how long for. A few chilly nights is all it takes for us to be reaching for the blankets and the beanie and locking ourselves indoors! It is actually the best time to be out and about on the street, embracing the fresh air, defrosting in the sun and indulging in the winter comfort food that is so lovingly prepared by our local restaurants. The hinterland is stunning and while it may seem too cold to dip in the ocean, our story on ocean therapy may provide some inspiration! Otherwise, just snuggle up, indulge in retail therapy or pampering treatments and wait for the chill to pass. We are thrilled to be delivering our 4th edition and have loved the feedback we receive from readers and advertisers. We would like to acknowledge the local businesses that have supported us on this journey. Please support them in return – they are the fabric of our community and key contributors to our economic wellbeing. #lovelocal

Meghan Halverson is a woman dedicated to saving and protecting animals. Carolyn Beaton discovers that it was only fitting that it was an animal that saved Meghan in her time of need.
eghan Halverson, her husband and three children embarked on a new life on the Sunshine Coast six years ago. As a native of New York State and an enthusiastic world-traveller, this touch-down on Terra Australis was a long time coming and offered Meghan the fulfilment of a life-time ambition to get to know and work alongside our country’s unique wildlife. Today Meghan reflects that her happiness was accompanied by a definite naiveté about what was happening to our wildlife. A former nurse, she was initially drawn to work as a volunteer at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, tending to the needs of many patients. The reality there quickly overtook any previous notion of Australia being a wonderland for wildlife. At the hospital there was tragedy to be faced on a daily basis but Meghan’s calming, intuitive approach stood her in good stead. Beyond the broken bones and diseased bodies,
she discovered an almost spiritual connection with the quiet stoicism of the koala. Henceforth Meghan made a personal commitment to be the koalas’ champion, to be a voice for the voiceless. Her helping hand then stepped up to advocacy, to meeting with Councillors and Government Ministers and, in 2013, to taking on the role of President of Queensland Koala Crusaders, a local group committed to improving koala conservation outcomes. “I felt like I was climbing my own Everest,” says Meghan, but she was determined to dig deep and keep going. Despite an increasingly busy family life and other interests (involvement with Noosa Arts Theatre, The Noosa Longweekend) Meghan’s commitment to the koala did not waver. Until November 2014. On 28 November Meghan’s youngest child, Sarah, survived a motor vehicle accident in New Zealand that claimed the lives of both
her best friend and a much-admired teacher. Sarah was grief-stricken and Meghan’s own broken heart led her to support her daughter, to retreat and to take stock. She was enveloped in a profound questioning of the meaning of life. It took another animal to enable Meghan to step out of the haze and find purpose. Enter Vincent, the German Shepherd puppy, who was adopted by Sarah earlier this year, and became the baby member of the Halverson family. He is a smart, endearing boy who is being trained as an assistance dog and has a big job ahead of him.Vincent led Meghan to conclude that she still had an important, unfinished job of her own. “Koala conservation is fraught with difficulty, and is bogged down in politics. But I think, well, the end goal is survival of a species, so I must keep trying,” she said. To find out about Queensland Koala Crusaders go to www.koalacrusaders.org.au

As we step from the shore, that first immersion into the sea takes us all as individuals to a different space. Deb Caruso finds that it's this personal world Keith Hamlyn is attempting to capture in his photographic series, 'i Sea U'.
i Sea U, James
sincere compared to a lot of imagery that doesn't actually reflect who we are,” he said.
riginally a landscape photographer Keith Hamlyn has balanced the last 15 years between the camera and working as a tour guide on world-heritage listed Fraser Island. It's only in recent years he has begun to direct his camera towards people and Keith says his ongoing portrait project ‘i Sea U’ was a perfect fusion of both art forms.
Keith originally started shooting sessions with his surfer mates, but stresses this is not just about surfers, but about all people. “We are all connected to water, we are completely dependent on it, and when we immerse ourselves in it there is a transformation,” he said. “It might only be for a millisecond but in that moment there is a total connection and that's what I'm trying to capture.”
“I have discovered that with ‘i Sea U’, I could still be in nature, while experimenting with photographing people,” Keith said. “I actually got the idea whilst surfing, doing those sunset sessions and sitting in the line-up waiting for my turn to catch the wave, looking at my friends’ faces thinking 'wow you look beautiful right now!',” he says laughing.
He has now photographed more than 40 people with the intention for more and in other destinations beyond Noosa. Keith hopes to publish a book featuring the images in the future, though being the typical artist he doesn't feel like he has enough photos yet. We think he’s made a pretty good start.
It’s refreshing that in a world full of photoshop and being forever bombarded by products or ideas that we should look a certain way, that Keith's images strip it all back to the simple beauty that he believes everyone has.
An exhibition of the project to date will be held at Keith's warehouse-style workspace, The Studio 4567, at 6pm on Saturday 26 September. For details visit The Studio 4567 Facebook page.
“I really love what I've stumbled onto with this project, the photos are timeless to look at and I really feel that they are

Ocean Therapy From our innate connection with Mother Nature to the healing rhythm of waves, Kristie Hayden discovers the mental health benefits of life by the sea.
he advantage of life by the ocean goes far beyond the joy of surfing, beach cricket and moonlit walks. The ocean offers up healing benefits too. Nutrient-rich seaweed, algae and salt water have long been regarded for their physical healing. But what about benefits to mental health? The weightlessness of floating, time-out to reflect on life’s challenges and triumphs, the joy of spotting a dolphin and her calf in Tea Tree Bay? The positive effects of the marine environment on one’s mental wellbeing have been studied by scientists the world over. And the resounding agreement is, as author Jill Davis penned, “The waves of the sea help me get back to me.”
University of Queensland’s Dr Theresa Scott says that human attachment to the ocean and other natural environments is instinctive. One theory that supports her research is Biophilia, literally meaning a love of life and lifelike processes. “One of the key concepts underpinning biophilia is the aesthetic experience of nature,” Dr Scott says. “It is argued that there is a genetic component to the aesthetic response, linked to our evolutionary experience, which includes the supposition that humans intuitively view natural environments as being places more likely to provide tranquility, security, shelter, and food; therefore humans are genetically encoded to respond positively to natural environments.” No wonder day spas around the world spend millions recreating the ocean aura offering wave-rhythm therapy, sea-spray inhalation and float tanks to clients who seek refuge from the concrete confines of bustling cities. “I, personally, find listening to rolling waves, water, birdsong, incredibly relaxing and it is also very integral to meditative practice, in which case it is beneficial to slow down brain activity,” Dr Scott adds.

Children at the beach typify ocean-inspired emotional wellbeing. For young ones, the sea entices imagination of mermaids dancing beneath waves, of dolphins playing, of sharks lurking hungrily and of sandcastles. Here, children get dirty, soaked and really, really loud. Where else on earth would a small noisy child wearing sand-coated seaweed ‘hair’ not only be socially acceptable, but encouraged? The beach invokes a laidback brand of happiness.
aquatic sounds of the ocean. In fact, he notes, one of the first human experiences is aquatic sound. “Before the fetus is large enough to touch the inside of the mother’s womb it is floating free in body temperature amniotic fluid,” he says. In the darkness of the womb where fluid fills nose and mouth, we have no sense of taste, sight or smell either. “The amniotic fluid would also fill the ear canals and be pressed up against the eardrum. Since sound travels through water five times more efficiently than through air, the sense of hearing would be five times more acute.” Nothing but the soothing sound of flowing water. Is it any wonder the ocean resets our spirits and brings us back to ourselves?
The waves of the sea help me get back to me.
There is evidence to show that being active and spending time at the beach can help prevent and ease depressive symptoms. Practicing meditation or relaxation is easy under the spell of seaside noises. Echoes of wind, waves and birds, have been used in healing for centuries. Psychoacoustic experts capture marine noises and record them for use in mental health therapies and many sound experts describe oceanic sound as nutrients for the nervous system.
Dr Jeffrey Thompson from California’s Centre for Neuro-acoustic Research advocates healing body, heart, mind and spirit with the
When you strip back every human being to their fundamental core, regardless of country or creed, we’re all intrinsically united in the way our lives began. Floating in a wondrous ocean. The essence of humanity. And, for many, the promise of a seaweed wig.

Winter Wonders QUINCES
“They dined on mince, and slices of quince, which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon.” Edward Lear, The Owl and the Pussycat (1871) The quince defies the principles of evolution; in its raw form no animal could possibly want to forage this fruit from the tree and disperse its seeds. But its unique and perfumed aroma when slowly cooked with sugar and spices would be enough to make even the fussiest pussycat swoon! Embraced by generations of nannas all over the country to make jellies, pickles, pastes and jams, the quince is fast making a comeback as a new generation discovers the beauty and complexity of this ancient fruit. Quinces are only available in the cooler months, so I like to preserve at least a few kilos each year so I always have some on hand. Quinces goes with: Cheese, spices, apples, smallgoods, nuts, cream, pork, chicken
Not the prettiest of vegetables, celeriac’s versatility and flavour makes up for its gnarly appearance. Shredded and mixed with mayonnaise to make celeriac remoulade, sliced thinly and deep fried to make chips, roasted with other vegetables to accompany meats and fish, or simmered in milk to make silky purees and soups, celeriac’s deep earthiness and subtle celery flavour makes it one of my all time favourite winter vegetables.
Celeriac goes with: fish and shellfish, chicken, cream, potatoes, bacon, thyme, capers, fennel, anchovies, game.

Matt Golinski gets wistful with these winter wonders.
Having grown up on a tropical fruit farm, I’ve known the joy of sitting under a custard apple tree as a boy, tearing a perfectly ripe one in half with my hands and slurping it down, competing with myself to see how far I could spit the seeds as I ate. The trick with custard apples is to eat them at the perfect ripeness. Buy them when they’re hard, and wait a couple of days until they give a little when squeezed, a lot like an avocado. In my opinion, custard apples are best eaten just as they are with a spoon and if anything a squeeze of lime juice to balance their sweetness. They do make great ice creams and mousses as well. Custard Apples go with: cream, vanilla, lime, other tropical fruits, coconut, ginger.
Unfortunately most people’s first experience with these little nuggets is when grandma boils them for hours until they are grey and watery and they tend to avoid them for the rest of their lives. But try them sautéed with garlic, bacon, butter and herbs and those early childhood scars may just fade away. Finely shredded, mixed with grated carrot, shallots and a light vinaigrette they make a beautiful winter slaw to go on a pulled pork roll. Available all year round in supermarkets, brussel sprouts are at their peak and grown locally through the winter months.
Brussel Sprouts go with: butter, bacon, vinegar, garlic and onions, cream, parmesan, chicken, beef, herbs, potatoes.
Winter Warmers Matt Golinski delivers mouth-watering recipes to warm the coldest hearts and satisfy dietary needs without sacrificing flavour.
ROASTED GRASS-FED FILLET OF BEEF WITH WALNUT STUFFING, SAUTÉED GREENS PALEO
YELLOWFIN TUNA CARPACCIO WITH CELERIAC, CUCUMBERS, CAPERS AND NASTURTIUM RAW FOOD
Ingredients: •8 00gm whole grass-fed beef fillet, trimmed • 1 onion, diced • 1 clove garlic, finely sliced • 1 tbs olive oil • 1 cup grated cauliflower • 150gm walnuts, roughly chopped • 1 egg • 1 tsp chopped thyme salt • 200gm Brussels sprouts, sliced
Ingredients: • 500gm fresh yellowfin tuna, sliced into 2-3mm slices • 1 cup celeriac, finely shredded and soaked in iced water for 15 minutes • 1 Lebanese cucumber, finely sliced and soaked in iced water for 15 minutes • 1 golden shallot, finely sliced • 2 tbs small capers • 1 bunch watercress • 20 small nasturtium leaves • 50ml white wine vinegar • 50ml extra virgin olive oil • 1 tsp whole seed mustard • salt and pepper
Method: Sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add the cauliflower and continue to cook over a low heat for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool. Mix in the egg, walnuts and thyme and season well with salt and pepper.
Method: Whisk together the vinegar, mustard and olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay the tuna slices over a large platter to cover the whole surface and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Scatter over the shredded celeriac, cucumber slices, shallots, capers, cress and nasturtium leaves.
Using a long, thin knife, make an incision in the beef lengthwise through the centre to form a pocket for the stuffing. Stuff the walnut mixture into the beef and secure the ends with wooden skewers. Season the beef well with salt and pepper and sear all over in a hot heavy based pan. Transfer to a roasting tray and bake at 220˚C for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and rest for 5 minutes.
“Carpaccio” is a dish created at Harry’s Bar in Venice for a customer who was advised by her doctor not to eat cooked meat. The chefs made a dish of finely sliced raw beef simply dressed and named it after Vittore Carpaccio, a Venetian painter whose work featured reddish hues. Using yellowfin tuna gives the same beautiful bright red effect.
Sauté the onion, garlic, chilli and fennel seeds in olive oil until soft. Add the Brussel sprouts, cavolo nero and kale and stir over a medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add the apple cider vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Slice the beef into 1cm slices and serve fanned over the cabbage mixture.

Method: Lay the quince quarters in a single layer in a small baking tray and sprinkle over the sugar to completely cover. Add the vanilla, cinnamon and cloves, cover tightly with foil and bake overnight (about 12 hours) at 100˚C or until they turn a deep crimson red. Put the butter, sugar, eggs, almond meal and orange zest into a food processor and blend until smooth. Chill for 2 -3 hours. Spoon the almond mixture into 6 greased small rectangular baking tins. Dice each quince quarter into 6 pieces and press into the top of the almond mix. Bake at 180˚C for 25 – 30 minutes. Warm the jam and mix with an equal amount of the quince cooking syrup. Once the financiers have cooled, brush on the jam mixture with a pastry brush to glaze. To make the ice cream, press the ripe pulp of 2-3 custard apples through a sieve until you have 2 cups of puree. Chill. Place the cream, milk and vanilla in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar, and slowly whisk in the boiling milk mixture until well combined. Return to the saucepan and stir over a low heat until the custard thickens slightly and coats the back of a wooden spoon. Cool.

mooshka magic At the centre of the Sunshine Beach village is a funky and welcoming space that warms the soul and is a magnet for visitors and locals alike.
hen Damian and Lucy Roberts opened Mooshka in 2009 they were looking to create a familyfriendly, casual dining destination using good local produce. Six years on and the venue has achieved all that and more to strongly establish itself as ‘the local’.
Goan-Style seafood curry
The eclectic mix of retro and vintage furniture with simple but sensational food and beverages offers something for everyone in a relaxed, cosy and welcoming atmosphere and seems to draw people from all walks of life. And while Damian is the king of the kitchen, the eclectic design is thanks to Lucy who has a background in visual merchandising, including working for iconic fashion brand GAP. According to Damian, Lucy finds quirky pieces from places far and wide that add to the vibe. The Mooshka motto is “keep it simple, make it fun” and with working seven days from 11am until late, it is a mantra that is carried from the kitchen to the kerb and out into the community. Damian and Lucy also believe in giving back and regularly support the local school, AFL club and Noosa Boardriders. The menu is saturated with local produce expertly incorporated and a good share of gluten free and vegetarian options. The pizza menu is mouth-wateringly impossible to decide on which delicious concoction to order and the Roast Pork Belly with caramelised pineapple, peanuts and Asian slaw salad is a stand-out dish. In fact, all the salads are substantial and the casual dining options include tacos (of Chihuahua Tuesday fame), ribs, grilled haloumi, nachos and burgers. More considerable fare comes in the form of daily specials and regular favourites such as organic potato gnocchi, Gympie grass-fed eye fillet, and barramundi. “I started out in an organic bakery and café that was also a food co-op and I learnt to make what has become a star dish at
Established 2004 @ Cotton Tree and Mooloolaba
Mooshka,” Damian said as he informs me that the Japanese-style organic tofu burger served with miso walnut sauce would make its much-awaited return to the winter menu. “It is a dish that really challenges people’s perception of tofu and keeps them coming back for more.” The special today is a Goan-style curry with local prawns, mussels, reef fish, calamari, scallops served with jasmine rice and pappadums for $34 and it is hearty, warming and fresh with delicious layers of flavour. The mulled wine is a favourite in winter and Mooshka’s is made on site using the juice and zest of organic apples, oranges and limes to make a stock including star anise, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, honey. The stock is reduced to intensify the flavour and then gently infused with a Margaret River Cabernet merlot. If beer is your preference, there is a good selection of craft beers from international imports to local as well as gluten-free lagers. The organic pear cider is hard to beat and the wine list has some nice finds. Cocktails are always another option! When Damian is asked what he thinks has been the secret to success he admits that he doesn’t really know.

Better red than dead Tony Cox shows where his tastes lie as he uncorks the favourite drops that keep him warm and fuzzy at night.
he mercury is dropping, the budgie smugglers safely returned to their winter hiding place in the top draw and now we seek solace in the warmth of red wine. Nothing beats the feeling of glass against lip and a gentle torrent of crimson liquid flowing to every crevice of your mouth eventually finding its way to your stomach as it weaves its warming magic via your throat and chest. I may be showing my colour bias but aroma-wise and texture-wise red wine leaves the other stuff for dead in the cooler months and is more stimulating and thought provoking. That actually sounds like a bit of wine wanking, I just like to drink the red stuff and where better to start than shiraz. Shiraz is grown in just about every wine region in Australia, including Tasmania, and ranges from spicy, medium-bodied, savoury wines through to voluptuous, inky, full-bodied brutes and everywhere in between. Enough talk. As they say on Masterchef, “let’s taste”! In all, let's take a look at some outstanding wines from Australia's two strongest regions, one a more traditional producer, one a modern and one with allegiances in both camps with a little wave to France and history. Until next time, good drinking!
McLaren Vale 2013 Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz
Rhone Valley 2010 Guigal St Joseph
2013 Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz from McLaren Vale in South Australia features rounded plum and red fruits framed by elegant tannins and juicy acidity. For around $25 it’s pretty smart booze.
A little homage to the Rhone Valley never goes astray and whilst you can pay a bucket-load should you desire I prefer to sniff out value. Value for me sees me in the appellation of St Joseph. The 2010 Guigal St Joseph has red fruits and graphite nuances with fine tannins and bright, fresh acidity. From one of the Northern Rhone’s leading producers this appellation represents great value for those seeking entry to Northern Rhone Syrah at around $50.
Barossa Valley 2013 Sang de Pigeon Shiraz
Barossa Valley 2010 Eligo Shiraz
This wine represents the more elegant style of Barossa shiraz.
No venture into the realms of Barossa shiraz should see us avoid aspirational wines. When it comes to pedigree, not many can compare to John Duval. Having been at Penfold’s for 29 years, including being the custodian of Grange, John Duval is now making Barossa wines for himself. His 2010 Eligo Shiraz features dark fruits, plum and spices closing with persistent tannins. Stylistically, very different to Grange, at around $100 a bottle a lovely special occasion wine.
Made by Michael Hall, basically a one man operation who makes exceptional wine (duxed Charles Sturt, experience at Giaconda, Cullen, Henschke, Shaw & Smith among others) this is his entry level shiraz. Plum and dark fruits medium bodied with sweet spices and an elegant mineral thread. Classy wine for just under $30.

Tony Cox takes a trip over the ditch to pick the top drops from the best local producers. Well, someone has to do it!
t is very refreshing to work in an industry where so much is performed in an old-fashioned sort of way. The wine industry has gone through amazing changes in the last 25 years with a move to a FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) focus driven by massive new plantings. The result of an ill-conceived tax-driven expansion leaving big box style retailers rubbing their hands at the amount of distressed sellers eager to get something for their juice.
Finally down to Queenstown and a refreshing dip in Sam Neill’s vineyard dam, my contribution to adventure sports for which Queenstown is well known. Everyone knows how good pinot noir is from Central Otago but it is the Rieslings which are stunning. Extremes between day and night time temperatures ensure very high acid levels. Flavours which include green apples as well trademark lime with persistent but soft acid typify the region’s Riesling profile. Unlike many Australian Rieslings, it is common for the Rieslings from Central Otago to feature a bit of residual sugar. In many instances the residual sugar is not discernible due to the high acid levels. The 2014 Two Paddocks Picnic Riesling featured stonefruits, some mid palate weight and persistent finish, great lunch wine.
Fortunately, there are still many producers that maintain their integrity and focus on producing quality booze and maintaining the relationships that are integral in selling their wine. A recent trip to New Zealand saw a group of us visit some leading family-run quality-focussed wineries from Martinborough in the North Island as well as both Marlborough and Central Otago in the South Island. I will pick one from each region as space won’t allow me to mention all seven.
A short flight to Blenheim saw us take in the wines of Greywacke, made by long-term Cloudy Bay winemaker and esteemed photographer Kevin Judd. His Greywacke 2013 ‘Wild’ Sauvignon Blanc was fantastic for someone who is generally not a fan of sauvignon blanc. Textured, full of tropical notes but finishing fresh and long it made me rethink what sauvignon blanc can be.
Ata Rangi in Martinborough, just an hour from Wellington, is renowned for pinot noir and consistently produces wines that sit at the very top of New Zealand’s pecking order for quality. What really excited me were a couple of white wines we tried.
Overall, the central thread of these wineries is a total commitment to quality as well as respect for their vineyard site ensuring their little piece of earth continues to produce quality wines into the future. For anyone wanting to see photos of your scribe emerging from Two Paddock’s dam it may be more likely you will find photos of the Loch Ness Monster. Cheers and good drinking!
The 2014 Ata Rangi ‘Lismore’ Pinot Gris has trademark pear flavours along with stonefruit, lovely textured middle with a little acidity to clean things up at the back. The 2014 Ata Rangi Kahu Botrytis Riesling was absolutely stunning. Obviously sweet with apricot flavours again the acid to close makes this wine stand out, balancing the intense sweetness.

Like a Boss
Zinc 96’s Nugget and Al get back to grassroots to celebrate the album that converted a working class man to ‘The Boss’.
n the 1960s and 70s, you couldn’t swing a cat around your local record store without hitting a protest album. From The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan to Joan Baez’s Farewell, Angelina, everybody with a voice and a drummer had a beef and wanted to sing about it. But then, whether it was the consumerism and hubris of the early 1980s or the lack of anything to protest about, the genre disappeared overnight. That was until the 1984 megahit that was Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. With this raw-boned masterpiece, Uncle Sam found his anger again and the boy from Long Branch, New Jersey cemented his status as America’s Working Class Champion. Even the album cover gave you the feeling that Springsteen only chose to be a rock star in his downtime from pulling a shift at a steel mill. One thing ‘The Boss’ has always been good at is delivering infectious rock songs with a motto. The great irony is that the message of
the title track was largely misunderstood by many (including then-President Ronald Reagan) who saw it as a fervent, nationalistic call-to-arms when in fact it was the tale of a disaffected Vietnam veteran. Springsteen recently recalled how significant this album was in his long recording career, proclaiming it as the one that changed his life and gave him his biggest audience. Forever the master storyteller, he really was at the top of his game on this collection. Whether reminiscing the good times and the lost times of Glory Days, his fondness of My Hometown, the lover’s plea Cover Me, or his smoldering ode to the ladies with I’m On Fire, he runs the gamut of emotions. Let’s not forget a little
dabble in pop music with the infectious Dancing In The Dark, the video of which helped an unknown Courtney Cox launch her career with an impromptu stage dance. Ultimately, for Born In The U.S.A., the figures tell the story: seven singles in the Top 10 which matched the record set by Michael Jackson’s Thriller and a sales certification 15 times platinum. Not bad for a boy from the tracks.

winter skin care
Staying hydrated during the colder months is no trouble if you follow these quick tips for when our body is layered in clothes - well only one extra layer if you live in Noosa. Katrina Thorpe has the good oil to make sure you don’t end up with crocodile skin.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BODY, NO TROUBLE, NO TROUBLE Due to the amount of clothing we wear during winter, our skin tends to get very dry as the fabrics keep us warm but also absorb our natural body oils. While we don’t feel like exposing ourselves in winter, it is important to apply some skin nourishment to prevent the crocodile skin appearance. It makes sense that if you are losing natural oils from your body to replace it by applying natural oils. The best time to do this is when your skin is damp after a shower as products are absorbed better in the presence of moisture. We know it’s getting cold when the organic coconut oil is solid but you can still use your coconut oil as a body balm. Simply melt the coconut oil and tip it into a wide lidded jar, or make it a bathroom feature in a vintage tub or pot, this way you can wipe your fingers across the surface of the coconut oil balm and apply to your skin. It would also make a nice gift for a friend.
weather. Both are excellent oils for applying to your body and face and are recommended for healing scars and preventing stretch marks and ideal for pregnancy. Don’t underestimate the importance of bath time with some luxury soaking and a glass of your favourite beverage to warm your bod on a winter’s night. From luxury bath milks such as Uspa Rose milk bath soak to something as simple as a can of organic coconut milk to nourish your skin while you relax in the bath. If you have tired, aching muscles then you are best to have a warm Epsom Salts Bath (1/2 a cup to a bath) full of magnesium to help muscle fatigue and you can mix this with the milk products too!
“it is important to apply some skin nourishment to prevent the crocodile skin appearance.”
Another oil to consider is organic camellia oil, which is from the green tea plant and is odourless, light and doesn't solidify in the cold
FACE FACTS Winter is a great time to rejuvenate your skin with exfoliation, serums and masks. It is also the perfect time of year for skin resurfacing such as intensive peels and microdermabrasion as we tend to spend less time in the sun and the UV rating is lower. Most skin care product ranges encourage the use of skin serums for added hydration, resurfacing or skin correction, which are tailored to your needs and concerns and applied under your moisturiser to give your skin the extra concentrated ingredients it needs. You can feel and see the difference in your skin as soon as you add a serum into your skin care routine and often you need less moisturiser when
applied over a serum as the silky serum does a lot of the skin hydration before you apply the moisturiser. Have the best of both worlds and apply a face mask while you’re in the bath. Face masks are generally applied after cleansing and or exfoliation of the skin but there are some great masks now such as Environ Hydrating Exfoliating Mask that offers a double action of micro exfoliation while hydrating the skin with a smooth, creamy, clay base that gives your skin a radiant glow. There are plenty of masks available and I recommend reading the application instructions before you use them as each mask has its own particular active ingredients.

IN GOOD HEALTH
To the point I have been having acupuncture since suffering from crippling back spasms as a teenager whose muscles weren’t keeping up with a massive growth spurt. I continued to undergo treatment to assist with physical and mental wellbeing in my 20s when I partied and worked too hard. Two decades later, I am still ‘pinned’ regularly to help with the “working too hard” bit although my partying days have slowed down somewhat. Over the years, I have found it essential to assist with endometriosis in not only helping alleviate the symptoms of this debilitating disease but also to help us fall pregnant and even to induce labour the week after little Maximus was due. In fact, Max, who is now six, even has acupuncture to assist with poor sleeping, digestive issues, lack of concentration and irritability. For kids, the treatment is more in the form of acupressure points being stimulated for the same effect as needles in adults. I’ve noticed it’s like hitting a ‘reset’ switch on my normally happy boy. For the record, I am petrified of normal needles but have never felt an acupuncture needle enter my body. Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used forms of traditional medicine in the world - dating back for at least 2,500 years. The general theory is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow called Qi through the body that are essential for optimal health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease and the

Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medical treatment. Deb Caruso discovers why there is a push to have this ancient therapy brought into the mainstream.
insertion of fine needles or applying other various techniques into specific points on the skin may correct imbalances of flow to bring about healing.
She believes acupuncture has a valid role in frontline services such as hospitals and that it should be part of the mainstream medical system.
According to Emma Iwinska, owner of Double Happiness, one of the easiest ways to explain Qi flow is to imagine the body’s meridians or energy channels as rivers of water.
The thought isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds after a 1979 study by WHO (World Health Organisation) recognised a wide range of disorders as having been successfully treated by acupuncture. Globally, natural therapies are being integrated into hospital systems and just last year, emergency physicians at The Alfred, Northern, Cabrini and Epworth hospitals in Melbourne partnered with RMIT’s School of Health Sciences to see if acupuncture could relieve acute pain in patients presenting to hospital with either lower-back pain, sprained ankles or migraines. The initial results showed acupuncture offered the same level of pain relief as analgesic drugs when patients rated their pain one hour after treatment.
“If a log falls in the river it obstructs the flow of water and you can end up with severe flood or drought,” she said. “An acupuncturist should find any ‘logs’ and move them out of the way, while addressing any areas of drought or flood.“ Emma has a Bachelor of Health Science in Chinese Medicine and is a registered acupuncturist and Chinese medical herbalist with more than 15 years of clinical experience.

Emma believes that the mainstream medical system often only treats issues once they become a chronic disease, whereas natural therapies can assist with staying well and preventing chronic disease from happening. “Acupuncture should be considered as the first point of call for things like colds and flu, children’s health and digestive issues. It operates on a mix of physical, spiritual and emotional levels so is also helpful when there is no western medical diagnosis,” she said. “We love solving a good mystery!”

IN GOOD HEALTH Emma specialises in Japanese acupuncture believing that it is gentle and effective and provides immediate feedback through the pulse and palpation so the therapist knows the treatment is working. She is quick to point out that it’s not just about symptomatic relief but about getting to the root and cause of the problem. Amy Steinbeck, co-founder of Maple Street Acupuncture and Natural Medicine agrees saying that she works with her patients to reconnect them with their body by helping them to learn and understand the subtle (and not so subtle) messages they receive. “We encourage our patients to become active participants in their own healing and in returning themselves to an optimal level of health through patient education and body and spirit awareness,” she said. Both Emma and Amy are registered members of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA) and are Nationally Registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and encourage customers to look for these registrations as well as qualifications and training when selecting an acupuncturist.

With the cooler weather comes the opportunity to redecorate. Warm up your home inside and out with these red-hot tips.
oes it seem like winter this year has been a little slow arriving? The hot days dragged into April and the start of May however now we’re starting to see some wintery signs. The crisp blue skies and glassy ocean conditions…This is winter, IN Noosa style! Re-decorating for a season that is becoming shorter every year would be like stoking your new (barely used) fireplace with $50 bills. A preferred option is certainly to keep your core statement pieces and inject more seasonally-appropriate accessories that can be fun as well as being functional. Bold and colourful prints for your walls, cushions in bright hues or with geometric prints, throw rugs and metallic pendant lighting are the emerging winter trends for your home this season. These simple but strategically-placed elements can breathe new life into a space that is as tired as a kid who has spent all day at the beach. Everywhere you look there’s talk of injecting a “pop of colour” into your home as the cooler weathers sets in and the days become shorter. Charcoal greys, navy blues and deep sea green can make a room feel warm and cosy while providing the perfect backdrop for brighter coloured accessories in reds, oranges and yellows. Think bright and mismatched geometric patterns on pillows and cushions scattered on a charcoal sofa with a room-warming rug.
that actually have more of an old school vibe with ‘exposed’ bulbs and cables. If you must have a lampshade, make sure it is retro, vintage or made of natural materials such as petrified wood. If you don’t have a fireplace, candles can create a sense of warmth while also providing some very cool wall shadows. Reflect your inner warmth with mirrors and use colour dipped baskets to add instant appeal to any room. The baskets also provide somewhere to store the spare cushions and throw rugs when you toss them aside for warmer conditions! Sticks are also quite on trend. The more rustic the better or you can always paint a fresh one with some monochrome stripes or chevrons and hey presto you have somewhere to hang your alpaca wool scarf and beanie. Outside, a fire pit and strategically placed metal garden art and sculptures will draw you out from inside your cocoon. Adorn your exterior walls with wall art and light up the area with candles in over-sized hurricane lamps to keep it cosy. Bring your baskets full of cushions and rugs from inside and you’ll be as snug as a bug. Just don’t mistake your painted sticks for marshmallow holders or there’ll be trouble.
Ensure that the materials are organic and ethically made and that the labour is local or responsible to ensure complete integration into your living areas. Make a statement with a huge range of versatile and stylish metallic pendant lighting in styles ranging from traditional to modern designs

Winter Growing Cath Manuel shares her favourite things to plant, harvest and eat during the cooler months.
inter in a Noosa garden is divine! The mornings are cool, the days are sunny and we can grow abundant crops. If you followed my guide for Autumn Growing then you’ll have gardens ready for planting now. The cooler months offer perfect temperatures to grow veggies and herbs for Winter soups. Now is a great time to plant peas, snow peas, broad beans (if you eat them), kale, mustard greens, silverbeet or spinach, shallots and spring onions. Also try growing chives, dill and in late Winter, sow seeds of fennel. If you’re growing your own Kale you’ll notice that it continues to grow through to Spring. Every few weeks apply diluted organic liquid fertiliser over the foliage and soil. This will ensure your plants thrive well into Spring and provide you with an abundance of crisp leaves to harvest. The larger leaves are perfect for Kale Chips…one of my favourite uses for Kale! IN-HOUSE Landscape Architect
IN-HOUSE Interior Designer
Try this… Kale Chips! • • • • •
Harvest a large bunch of Kale leaves Trim off the thick stem and cut into approx. 3cm pieces Toss with olive oil, salt and fresh Thyme Roast in hot oven (about 200-210˚C) until crispy Enjoy with a cheese platter and good wine!!
TIP get to these before the kids do, they’ll love them too!
Winter is time to harvest Ginger and Turmeric as these plants die back during the cooler months. After removing dead leaves with sharp secateurs, gently dig under the rhizomes (ginger roots) and remove the older root. Leave younger roots in the soil to grow during Spring and to harvest again next Winter. Wash, dry and store in a container or basket in the pantry. No need to refrigerate. Fresh home-grown Ginger has a delicious sweet flavour and is used in cooking, tea making, juices and for medicinal reasons. As well as having a fabulous flavour, edible Ginger suits any ornamental sub-tropical garden. Try growing edible and useful plants throughout your gardens. They provide beautiful and delicious flavours all year round.

Grow your own Aromatic Tea Infusions Infusing freshly grown and picked leaves is the most delightful way of enjoying the fresh aroma of plants. Be soothed, relaxed or uplifted by the many gorgeous plants we can grow and enjoy. Organically grown fresh herbs would have to be one of the best things we can give to our body and nurture our soul. Freshly harvested herbs, and greens, have the highest nutritional content in the first few hours of being picked. After this time the nutrients diminish rapidly. Also, the active constituents are soluble in water, which means one of the best ways to enjoy the health benefits of herbs is by infusion, or making tea. Picking and using fresh herbs allows us to enjoy the flavours and nutrients that the plants provide. 42
‘Tea Pots’ make a beautiful gift, just include a small label with plant name and uses.

MY FAVOURITE HOME GROWN HERBAL TEAS… GINGER Great for assisting digestion or for upset tummies. Peel and chop a thumb size piece of ginger, gently boil in 2 cups of water for 5 minutes (longer for stronger flavour), add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice and half teaspoon of honey. Strain and enjoy warm or cooled. PEPPERMINT Fresh peppermint tea has an amazing flavour! Easy to grow, but must be in a container as it’ll take over your garden! I grow Japanese peppermint (Menthol) for a strong flavour.
Make a Bold Impression
LEMON BALM Reduces anxiety, has a soothing effect. Blend with Mint for more flavour. Lemon Balm grows as a ground cover, similar to Mint and grows well in a container in a part shaded position. It dislikes the direct hot summer sun. STEVIA This amazing little plant has become very popular recently with the no-sugar diets. Stevia grows very well in our climate and grows perfectly in a container. The flowers attract good bugs and bees to the garden and the leaves when chewed fresh are incredibly sweet… my kids love them!! I use stevia leaves fresh in morning smoothies, when making cakes, muffins or slices and also add leaves to sweeten meals cooked in my slow cooker. Stevia tea is sweet, but delicious when leaves are added to mint, peppermint or lemon balm. I suggest giving this lovely plant a ‘grow’ in your garden, and save having to buy stevia powder from the store! LEMON VERBENA Great to drink after a meal to aid digestion. Lemon Verbena grows to about 4m tall and is a lovely scented shrub. Great for any ornamental garden. ROSEMARY Uplifting. Not to be used by anyone with high blood pressure. Grows well in sandy soil in a sunny, warm position. Great for hedges in a hot, dry location. Blend Rosemary and Lemongrass for uplifting spirits and reducing depression. BORAGE Good for lifting spirits during stressful times. Borage is related to Comfrey, and grows well in a sunny location. Borage flowers are edible and used to garnish desserts, fruit salad and cocktails. Borage is also a useful addition to compost to assist with decomposing of food scraps.

TO MAKE TEAS... Use approx. 2 teaspoons of freshly chopped or bruised leaves in a teapot or glass plunger with one cup of boiling water. Allow to infuse for a few minutes and enjoy. For a strong tea allow the leaves to steep for longer or use more herbs. To refresh the brew, add a few extra leaves and more boiling water.

Artist in focus
Nina Shadforth talks with artist and 2014 Archibald finalist, Jandamarra Cadd. The peaceful warrior for Indigenous equality opens up about his creative journey and quest for social justice.
HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN A CREATIVE PERSON? I started 27 years ago as a 15 year old when I used painting as a means to express myself. I have always been able to see and experience life in a way that seemed “different”, which in hindsight I realise was my creativity. WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST EXHIBITION? It was in 2000 - a combined exhibition through Deakin University (where I studied my Bachelor of Visual Arts) at the Koorie Heritage Trust. I sold two of my three pieces. WHEN DO YOU THINK YOU BECAME A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST? I think it was the opening night of my first touring solo exhibition, which has been solidified since with subsequent successful solo exhibitions and becoming an Archibald Finalist. WHAT/WHO INSPIRES YOUR WORK? Social conscience issues inspire my work - the drive of breaking down those barriers of racism, sexism, oppression and injustice. And those people that live with these human rights violations inspire me - their resilience and fortitude under such difficult situations. Especially those who stood up in years gone by, where society and the law supported their unjust oppression. LOOKING FROM THE OUTSIDE IN, WHAT GENRE IS YOUR WORK? I’ve been described as a contemporary Aboriginal portrait artist. But I don’t tend to
IN Noosa Magazine
label or classify myself as I just paint based on how I feel led at the time. I don’t restrict myself creatively. TELL ME ABOUT YOUR DAY-TO-DAY WORK ACTIVITY IN YOUR STUDIO/WORKSPACE? After breakfast I head into the studio. I sit before the canvas I’m working on and call in the Ancestors and ensure my intentions are set. I tend to paint 12 - 16 hour days. I need to be 100% present and tend to listen to select music to facilitate my focus. I prefer to also have many days in a row to paint and can’t take phone calls or visits as it takes me out of my creative flow. WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW? My 2015 Archibald portrait of Luke Carroll which is titled “Storyteller” and also my Doug Moran portrait of Uncle Bob Randall titled: “We Are The Land”. Both of these portraits are done completely in a traditional ochre dot style with the intention of showing how the land and culture is an integral part of their identity as it has been for over 60,000 years for Aboriginal People - just as water is to a fish - and although they are living in a modern day society these connections are strong and an unbreakable link to the past. WHAT TO YOU LOOK FOR IN AN ARCHIBALD PORTRAIT? I look for a strong sense of self and individual
character. Something that shines through and that speaks volumes about what I feel are the universal fundamentals of our humanity. Often associated with human rights or redemption of oneself. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING ON YOUR LATEST PIECES? I worked on these entries 5 days a week for 6 months. This piece (above) is layered dots, which means dots on top of dots to give it full shape and form. So this requires quite a long time to allow for a desired outcome of being an aesthetically appealing piece while also exposing the richness of the subject. WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU FINISH A PIECE? I have never felt the satisfaction of “finishing” a painting and probably never will, as I am usually left with the need to let go of that outcome and be at peace with what is there at the end.
IN SPIRATIONAL I do gain great satisfaction knowing that I gave my absolute everything to share a visual narrative of the sitter and that this will be viewed and their story seen and acknowledged. On a practical I enjoy the feeling of sealing a piece with gloss and seeing the paint come alive.
as well as people nationally and internationally was what truly was the highlight for me. It was so heartwarming to feel such solidarity and confirmation that what I’m doing is beyond just creating an aesthetically appealing painting.
WHAT HAS BEEN A CAREER HIGHLIGHT?
I would like to be exhibiting overseas, to reach a broader audience with the message of unity and equality, while doing what I love and continuing to meet and be inspired by beautiful hearted people along the way.
Becoming an Archibald Finalist last year, however it was actually the night before the winner was announced. The incredible amount of support I received from my local community,

t may have seemed as though summer was never going to leave us… but finally (alas) the chilly nights, shorter days and the dark early mornings have hit us! And let’s be honest…it ain’t easy! Too many people are quick to ditch their runners for ugg boots, water bottle for a hot chocolate and their enthusiasm for laziness when winter approaches. Yet what we all know deep down is that this is the ideal time of the year to start
Don’t use the ‘winter blues’ as an excuse to stop moving… Erin Yarwood shares her top tips to keep you moving through to Spring.
moving, keep moving or just simply get moving to beat the winter chill! Not only will you continue to reap the benefits and achieve the gains you’re aiming for in your current training regime during the winter months (if you continue!) but you’ll also be one step ahead when weather starts heating up again come September! So there you have it… No excuses! Winter is here, and we must deal with the fact. So warm up and keep on moving!!
“Summer bodies are made in the winter”
Here are three simple (and warming!) exercises to do each day during the cooler months.
HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE TIPS TO BEAT THE WINTER BLUES: •O n rising, drink a glass of warm water and lemon juice. It’s a great detoxifier and it ensures you get a nice gulp of water first thing to hydrate your body! • Buy yourself a new winter fitness wardrobe. It doesn’t have to be expensive. But having some new gear always makes you feel good. • Write out a daily program/plan for you to follow, even dot points to tick off each day. This will help you stay motivated and focused. • MOISTURISE! It is so important to moisturise your skin as the drying season approaches and it makes you feel 100% more confident about yourself.
Erin’s tip: make sure you keep your knees aligned, back straight and always land softly.
Erin’s tip: ensure your lower back feels good, by adjusting the height of your hips and keep your belly button locked to ensure your core stays activated.
Erin’s tip: keep your spine in contact with the mat and lengthen from your fingers to your toes. If your back starts to arch, stretch your leg higher.
Complete 3 x 15 of these each day, and you’ll not only be helping to tone your legs and bum, but will also be working on your cardiovascular fitness. The perfect winter warmer!
Excellent for core work, arm strength and picking up the heart rate. Aim for 3 x 1 minute intervals, 20 second rest.
An awesome Pilates exercise to strengthen the core and work on coordination. You can vary the speed with these.
barefoot Defining Moments
With the centenary anniversary of ANZAC troops landing in Gallipoli, the spotlight was cast on our brand of nationalism. Paul Bird travelled to ANZAC Cove to discover what it may mean to the modern Aussie.
ationalism both attracts and repels us as it so easily unmasks both the best and worst faces of our human nature. At its best it brings together the hopes and aspirations, pride and joy of being a member of a certain national “tribe” with positive intentions and outcomes. At its worst it leads to a form of mass narcissism which gives explicit permission for the ‘us’ to do wrong to the ‘them’ – whoever the ‘them’ happens to be – because that particular brand of nationalism feeds notions of natural superiority or exceptionalism.
really were a long way from “home” and that our future lay in the Asia Pacific. We turned to the United States, not only for our security, but also culturally and began to focus on our neighbours here rather than in Europe as a form of grounding in the reality of our location and place in the world.
It seems there is always an us (good) and them (bad) when national pride, historical enmities and territorial disputes are allowed or encouraged to fester.
As usual, with every action there is a reaction and the inferiority of previous decades seemed to be replaced in the 1970s with an almost raucous, over-bearing nationalism which had all the hallmarks of an adolescent relying on bravado rather than substance to bluff its way around the world. We had a brash, verging on obnoxious, veneer.
For me the 1960s was a time when the Aussie chip-on-theshoulder, that self-deprecating and inferiority complex which marked our interactions with other peoples, began to fall away.
I have recently experienced one form of our still-emerging Australian nationalism as one of the few lucky to attend the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Gallipoli in Turkey this year.
Remember, if you are old enough, the ocker C’mom C’mon Aussie C’mon nationalism of the 1970s? Certainly playful and naïve but also masking a shallowness which saw many of our best and brightest in the arts and culture industries leave Australia for more welcoming and enlightened shores. Many never returned. We lost out as a nation.
It was a special event marking 100 years since our soldiers waded ashore in the Dardanelles with our New Zealand cousins to begin a doomed nine-month military campaign involving almost one million men from both the Allied and Turkish sides of World War I.
"...the moment was one of solemn reflection on what it means to be an Australian."
Since then we have become one of only four truly multicultural countries in the world and it seems to me that our nationalism is rooted in common values of democracy, respect and a recognition that we are “all in this together”. It is a nationalism expansive enough to encompass the eclectic and creative and is mostly welcoming to the world at large. A more mature and secure national character seems to have emerged in the past 25 years.
I joined more than 10,000 other ANZAC pilgrims in travelling halfway around the world for what was a “big” event – physically, mentally and emotionally for the participants – logistically for the organisers.
The ANZAC Dawn Service has become one of the defining symbolic events of our annual calendar, a moment when we pause in numbers to honour all those who have fallen in conflicts since the birth of our nation and all those who have, and continue to serve in our names in war and peacekeeping zones around the globe.
We now defend our values but are not over-bearing about it. We accept there are different ways of doing things and looking at the world.
For me, the moment was one of solemn reflection on what it means to be an Australian here and now, recognition of the sacrifices of those who have fallen to guarantee our freedoms and way of life and also a reminder of the horror and terror of war.
Our exposure to the best that many cultures can bring to our country has certainly contributed substantially to this healthier nationalism as has our ability to travel, increased levels of education and the access to information which technology has brought with it.
It also raised the question of how our twenty-first century brand of nationalism has developed its “health” or “unhealth” at this moment in the nation’s evolution. Our own brand of nationalism has slowly but surely evolved since Federation of the States in 1901.
The Gallipoli pilgrimage was not a celebration of war but rather a moment for recognising our interconnectedness as humans and what it means to be an Australian today, a member of a global community, open and welcoming but ready to defend the values which have been forged by hard work and toil over the past almost 240 years.
The young ANZACs who landed in Turkey in April 1915 were most certainly fashioned by their era - an almost pure reliance on Mother England and traditional Anglo-Celtic values with a smattering of Australian bush mythology emerging to create the distinct Aussie personae.

The Fall of Singapore to the Japanese by the British in 1942, sometimes described as the greatest single defeat for the British Army in World War II, was another turning point in the development of our national character. We understood, perhaps for the first time, that we
