Open your eyes to coastal living Monaco is located in the cultural heart of Caloundra’s shopping and dining precinct with stunning views over the Pumicestone Passage, Bribie Island, marine and shipping lanes and beyond. The 12-level Monaco complex is the latest project from leading Caloundra developer Ford & Rockliff, who have been responsible for some of Caloundra’s showpiece developments such as Medici, Renaissance and The Waterford. Monaco’s one, two and three bedroom ensuited prestige apartments and penthouses all feature spacious balconies, freeflowing open-plan living areas with an abundance of natural light and cross ventilated ocean breezes.

Typically, the lounge and main bedroom have full length glazing opening onto a spacious deck that overlooks expansive water views of the ocean, Bribie Island and Pumicestone Passage. North facing entry courts and decks ensure residents benefit from the comfort of warm winter sunlight and allow cross ventilation to passively cool apartments in summer. Spacious living areas merge into the chic practicality of a modern kitchen equipped with quality Smeg appliances and designer finishes.

With a world of lifestyle attractions at your doorstep, Monaco has an impressive range of facilities that provide proof that time can be best spent at home.

Situated on the eleventh and twelfth floors, Monaco’s sub penthouses and penthouses incorporate expansive use of glass showcasing spacious balconies with inspiring views of Bribie Island, Pumicestone Passage and beyond. Adhering to Monaco’s flowing, open plan design each apartment benefits from the comfort of natural light and cross-ventilated ocean breezes.

Monaco's street cafe will embrace the modern and relaxed lifestyle of its Sunshine Coast surrounds by serving a variety of culinary delights in a contemporary alfresco setting.

Travellers’ Good Buys

One chance to make first impression

■ It’s not every day you check into a big-name resort and find that the lady at the Front Desk is a Director. Or when you go for a well-earned drink in the bar, you’re served by a Director there too – and when its time for dinner the lady who takes your order and delivers your meal is a Director as well. And even when you call it a day, yes, the ladies who made-up your room are all Directors also. But such is the case at the Mercure Centro Hotel at Port Macquarie on the NSW Mid North Coast, although they’re not executive directors and they don’t sit on the board. But those who welcome you on arrival wear name badges proudly informing you that rather than the bland title Receptionist, they’re all in fact Directors of First Impressions. Restaurant and bar staff, on the other hand, are all Directors of Lasting Impressions, while the housekeepers all boast of being Directors of Immaculate Impressions. The “Directorships” idea came from a brainstorming session of owners, General Manager Ann-Maree Crowe, and staff early in the hotel’s life, when it was clear that with the staff’s enthusiasm, it was only fitting to reward them with a level of recognition beyond that of other hotels. And while Ann-Maree didn’t get a “Directors” title hersefl, if she had, it would surely have had to be Direc-

Rich in history, not for cellar ■ Andrew Margan won’t be the least offended if you don’t even think of the word ‘cellar’ when buying a bottle of his 2010 Margan Hunter Valley Verdelho. Because this is a more-ish wine that once you’ve enjoyed the first bottle you’ll be looking for quick reason to go out and buy one or three more – Andrew didn’t make this one to buy and put away, he made it to buy and enjoy now. Coming off the Margan Cornerstone Vineyard whose lowbearing vines are rich with history as some of the oldest Verdelho in Australia, the resultant 2010 wine has lively citrus fruit flavours coupled with ripe tropical fruit overtones to give beautiful richness on the palate. And although 2010 was one of the more difficult vintages in the Hunter, Andrew Margan has created a great wine by picking in two batches: the first being slightly less ripe with that citrus and some green apple characters, the second coming later with the riper tropical fruit input. Pay $18 and enjoy with your favourite pastas and creamy sauces. Ideal partner with your favourite pastas and creamy sauces.

One For Lunch ■ Owners and winemakers at Bendigo’s Blackjack Vineyards, Ian McKenzie and Ken Pollock sum up the 2008 vintage in one line: “Our vintage from hell and the most difficult in our 20-plus years history.” The problem for them and others in southern Australia was an exceptionally hot beginning to the year, forcing them to pick fruit for 13-days straight rather than their more leisurely spread of five or six or more weekends. And they had to beg or borrow as many unused fermenters they could find to boost their own as fruit sugar levels went almost ballistic, or fruit threatened to shrivel and die. But they came out of it with a very grand Blackjack Major’s Line 2009 Shiraz that’s all about red berries, creamy oak, balanced acid and fine tannins. Grab a bottle at $25 and enjoy with lamb shanks and a parsnip mash.

tor of Ultimate Impressions. On a recent night we met-up with friends in the bar, the barman – sorry, Director of Lasting Impressions – noticed we had several bottles of wine with us, and even though we’d not bought them at the hotel and he knew we were taking them elsewhere for dinner, he immediately offered to “put them in the cool room to stay cold for you.” The Mercure Centro Hotel, one quickly realises, is not your average country hotel. Owned by a trio of local couples, and as Ann-Maree puts it “still just 3.5 years young,” it’s on the cusp of the CBD of this popular coastal holiday town. Walk a minute or so one way and you are in the midst of the city’s shopping and restaurant action, drive a couple of minutes the other way, and you’re on the sands of the beach. The Australian Ironman Competition will be staged on that beach on May 1 and already staff are looking forward to welcoming one particular entrant who’ll be staying with them: John McLean is a paraplegic after being hit by a car while cycling in training for another ironman event, the first wheelchair athlete to complete the Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon, first wheelchair athlete to swim the English Channel, he represented Australia in the Sydney and Beijing Olympics and Paralympics, and has sailed in the Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race. And since 1998 his John Maclean Foundation has inspired and motivated young under-18 wheelchair Australians “to chase their dreams and live life to the fullest.” Ann-Maree Crowe says sixty per cent of the Mercure Centro Hotel’s guests are holidaymakers, but there’s a growing conference and wedding reception business catering for up to 140 guests. “One recent reception involved a bride who came from South Africa arriving from the church in a traditional white wedding dress, and then changing into a South African tribal outfit and dancing the night away to the music of bongo drums!” Ann-Maree says. And wooing guests with his culinary skills is talented Chef Ben Crompton. From the neartwo dozen items on his current dinner menu you could start with oysters in limoncello and parsley granita, or maybe choose slow-cooked pork belly with seared scallops, crisp shallots and nahm jim, for mains Gippsland beef tender loin with duck pate ravioli, barramundi with fricassee of mussels, capsicum and celery, or perhaps charred lamb backstrap wrapped in Swiss chard with polenta… And to finish, lemon and ouzo cake with caramelised figs and citrus syrup, or a platter of Australian cheeses, dried grapes, pear relish and lavosh. It all reflects the vision of Ann-Maree and her fifty staff – and that’s to be the best hotel in the State based on customer service. (They’ve a current special throughout April: stay two nights from $149 per night and you’ll receive free Continental Breakfast both mornings; details 1300 786 989 or www.centrohotel.com.au) - David Ellis
