For those of you who don’t know, there’s been another full percentage cut by the Reserve Bank of Australia this week. This has now cut the official cash rate to just 3.25 per cent, which is exciting news for property owners, or those contemplating taking the propertyowning plunge for the first time. If banks follow suit and pass on the rate cut to borrowers, it means the reality of buying neutrally geared, or even positively geared, property on the Coast is closer than it has been for a very long time. It makes the entry-level property market even more appealing to would-be investors, and I’m sure the new rate cut has had many number-crunching borrowers reaching for the calculator this week. The dropping rates must be having an effect, as our market tracker section on page 18 (which lists properties that have sold in the last week) seems to be expanding. Could this perhaps be the sign of a moving property market?

Work in progess
by Julie Gatehouse
As Anna Bligh joins the push for more planning on the Sunshine Coast, MPR continues with part two of our series on the top 10 development hot spots. Julie Gatehouse examines the two hearts for Caloundra and the revitalisation of Mooloolaba Spit. ast week we gave you the lowdown on the Sunshine Coast’s planned water parks, the Marcoola airport and the Big Top’s big renovation. This week MPR continues its series with three more development hot spots.
MOOLOOLABA SPIT HIGH-RISE OR HECK, NO? You may picnic in its parks, cycle on the boardwalk or chomp on local prawns at its cafes. You may work on board one of the trawler fleet or set sail in your own boat. You may dive with sharks at the giant aquarium and enjoy its
tavern and tourist precinct. Some people live there, or stay in the abundance of holiday accommodation that it offers. About 700,000 a year just laze at its beach. The Mooloolaba Spit packs a lot into its narrow, curving peninsula that is located between the Mooloolah River mouth and the ocean, and the pressures on it have grown along with our population. Both levels of government, plus private landowners and community stakeholders, are in the throes of mapping its future for at least 10 to 20 years. There’s been a lot of water under the bridge, with fears that the caravan park will disappear or there’ll be towers at the Wharf. All is revealed in the Spit Draft Master Plan. Division four councillor Chris Thompson says the council now
awaits a response to the document from the state Department of Natural Resources. If adopted, key changes will include: realigning the caravan park’s boundaries to replace 15 per cent with public parkland; making it more pedestrian-friendly with improved boardwalks, adding greenery and beach access; improving car parking; and upgrading the harbour and yacht club areas while consolidating government offices. The future of the Wharf complex, which attracts half-a-million people a year, is undecided. Original proposals had a new 12-storey commercial/residential building on top of the existing multi-level car park, Parkyn Parade becoming a plaza and the tavern relocating. However, Chris says the council knocked this idea on the
4 My Property Review | February 6, 2009

Deputy Premier Paul Lucas on the draft SEQ plan.
This is all about planning for new residents and the jobs that support them. It means making sure infrastructure such as roads and public transport are in place before new communities can be built.
An artist’s impression of pedestrian links to connect the river and beach at Mooloolaba Spit head after public feedback. He says existing planning controls, including a height limit of three storeys, remain in force for the Wharf precinct. “The council’s formal position is that we would like to go ahead with an upgrade of the Spit in terms of streetscaping, parking, new paths and cycleways and a new park at the end,” he says. “We want to build infrastructure for locals to use, not just tourists, and support the commercial fishing industry. We want to encourage the private sector, for example, there are applications for a speed boat stacker and a restaurant on the marina.” As for UnderWater World? The popular tourist attraction, which has another 37 years on its lease, does not have any application before council, despite talk about redevelopment by previous owners. The Living and Leisure Australia Group acquired the long-term lease for UnderWater World and the Wharf and some retail businesses in 2006. A spokesperson says the company has no immediate plans to redevelop UnderWater World, although “the group ensures its exhibits are of the highest standard … and is continually assessing plans for the ongoing development of all its leisure businesses”. The group has a variety of tourism ventures, from ski lifts in Victoria to aquariums in Melbourne, Bangkok and Shanghai. “LLA remains committed to the local Sunshine Coast community and will keep all stakeholders up to date on any future plans for the redevelopment of UnderWater World and the Wharf at Mooloolaba,” the spokesperson says.

CALOUNDRA’S NEW HEART The writing’s been on the wall for Caloundra Aerodrome for years, sparking gossip as to what it will become. South of Caloundra Road and west of Caloundra’s CBD, the area is in a prime position to serve the growing region. An early plan added a railway to the site’s fringe. Now the State Government, which owns the land, and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council are working to relocate the whole lot so the land can be redeveloped as a new transit-oriented community/town centre. So what exactly does this mean?
AERODROME MOVING ON Come 2014, we’re unlikely to see light aircraft pilots, parachutists or chopper joy-flighters taking off from the Caloundra Aerodrome at Pathfinder Drive any longer. That’s when the leases are up and, under current plans, the tenants will start making way for a population of several thousand on the ground in what is being called CalTOC
RECREATION/BOATING TRAILER PARK Increased demand, poor amenity
FORESHORE BOARDWALK AND PARKLANDS Increasing pressure from regional demand
Anti-social Rationalisation/ behaviour, poor integration of surveillance Government uses
YACHT CLUB/BOAT HARBOUR Increased demand for recreational boating and maintenance of commercial ﬁshing Integration of commercial ﬁshing and tourism activities Commercial ﬁshing use and development pressures
Land use pressures on Mooloolaba’s Spit (Caloundra Transit Oriented Community). The aerodrome may be a smaller cousin to Marcoola’s airport, but its niche market businesses such as flight training, along with the Queensland Air Museum, are well-loved “and have very good prospects for growth”, according to Gerrie Carr-MacFie of Sunshine Coast Enterprises. “We are keen to ensure this stays in our region, but there’s still debate about how,” she says. The state Department of Infrastructure says a new site is required because of encroachment from new residential areas and urban infrastructure projects. It wants to do a master plan for the relocated Caloundra Aerodrome this year. Only problem is, where will it go? The study team has released four potential sites plus a fifth option of combining it with an upgraded Caboolture Aerodrome. Bells Creek Road is an option, followed by three sites in state forests – Coochin Creek, Johnston Road and Donnybrook (north of Caboolture).
Division one councillor Anna Grosskreutz expects ongoing controversy as locals fight any site that may impact the serenity of the Glass House Mountains. “At this stage the community does not have enough information from the State Government to make an informed decision,” Anna says. “We are waiting for the next phase of consultation.” Anna says a new aerodrome will be a much bigger asset, increasing aviation movements from the current 75,000 a year to 200,000 and with a larger runway capable of small jets in the future. The State Department says it will accommodate aviation-related sports and recreation, pilot training and low-capacity flying aircraft. Anna says the Air Museum should be retained in its current location. “I believe CalTOC can be planned to include it as a valued tourism feature.” continued over >

cover story < from overleaf
CalTOC is a funny acronym but it’s a serious example of the future for Coast communities. This concept of both levels of government and major developers is for a series of linked, well-serviced, public transport-friendly, self-contained communities where new residents can live, work and play in harmony with their environment. CalTOC is similar in concept to the fast-tracked greenfield developments that will house tens of thousands of people at nearby Caloundra South and Palmview (opposite the Ettamogah Pub), but on a much smaller residential scale, with about 2000 dwellings. Deputy mayor Tim Dwyer says CalTOC aims for a mix of major retail, commercial and residential uses based around a major transport corridor and interchange involving buses and trains. He says, “It will form an integral part of driving Caloundra’s culture change from car to public transport so, with our population increase predicted by the State Government [almost half-a-million people by 2031] we won’t ruin our lifestyle because of reliance on cars.” Tim stresses that no master planning has started and it’s all pending final decisions on the aerodrome. However, he envisages multi-unit blocks to cut urban sprawl and create affordable housing in the new community, adding, “Higher densities also will minimise the impact of population growth on our established neighbourhoods and villages.” Caloundra’s town plan has a maximum height limit of nine to 10 storeys in designated areas. The council is determining a new town plan in this term. Stockland Sunshine Coast has a big stakeholding in the Caloundra region. It intends to develop 3700 hectares at Caloundra South, including 20,000 residential lots. The company is working with both levels of government to bring the land to market. The property adjoins the aerodrome site.
This vibrant coastal area is an amazing part of our region and the nearly 300,000 residents who live here want us to keep it the way they love. This plan caters to the Sunshine Coast growing at an average rate of 2.1 per cent per year until 2031. To achieve our preferred settlement pattern for South East Queensland, we require an extra 98,500 dwellings on the Sunshine Coast. Around two-thirds will be located through new developments and major long-term broad hectare areas in Caloundra South and Palmview.
PEOPLE MOVING IN
Premier Anna Bligh on releasing the draft SEQ regional plan in December. The 98,500 is a large increase, given that according to ABS figures, there were just 103,675 dwellings on the Coast in 2006.
CALOUNDRA’S TRADITIONAL HEART CBD MOVING UP Where does all this talk of CalTOC leave the traditional CBD, extending along Bulcock Street from the top of town to Stockland shopping centre? No one – retailers, tourists shoppers, office workers, residents, Sunday market browsers, beachgoers or councillors – wants new development to affect the existing main street precinct. Tim Dwyer says CalTOC should simply be a catalyst for the revitalisation of Bulcock Street because the region can support two commercial hubs with different characteristics. “Bulcock Street needs to evolve while retaining its relaxed vibe,” he says. “I’d hate to see a repeat of the quiet times that Big Top suffered as a result of the birth of Sunshine Plaza. We’re asking people to be proactive about what needs to happen now.” Business support agency Sunshine Coast Enterprises is managing a project, involving traders and stakeholders, to decide how to enhance the street’s ambience and retail competitiveness. “It’s a gem with undersold charm,” says CEO Gerrie Carr-MacFie. “There’s a lot of planning to be done, but the community wants to retain it as an authentic experience – a vibrant niche market for retail, tourism (including entertainment) and residential.” Given Bulcock Street’s geographical limits (bounded by beaches, holiday high-rises and suburban housing), the only way for expansion may be up. Tim says it’s logical given that ground floor space is constrained and the council’s CBD planning scheme allows for higher buildings, up to around six or seven storeys on the southern side, for example. “We need to look at incentives so property owners have confidence in redeveloping according to a new vision.” It’s nothing new for accommodation in the area. Construction is underway on the 12-level Monaco resort fronting Bulcock Street and Otranto Avenue with views to Bribie Island. Tim offers an example of a three-storey building with al fresco cafe at ground level, professional offices above and residential living on top. “It’s not just about shopping,” he says, “it’s about employment, economic drivers and social atmosphere.” Issues to be tackled include parking and traffic, the need for people movers to connect the proposed transport interchange at CalTOC with the traditional CBD, planning rules and development costs. Issue 27 will conclude this series: Horton Park Golf Course – how will it make way for the new Maroochydore? And why a new billion-dollar hospital will be a major shot in the arm for the Coast, from patients to investors. Plus, do we finally have an answer for Mooloolaba’s car park?
We must be economically viable to provide jobs for the future and retain our younger generations. Our developments and business centres are among the reasons people ﬁnd the Coast such an attractive place to live, work and play. If we do not evolve without losing individual characteristics, we’ll get left behind.

Location, location… for rentals
With rents at an all-time high and vacancy rates low, it’s a great time to invest in rental property. So, if you’re looking to start or expand your property portfolio, where should you buy? Follow our eight location tips for rental success.
Road and nd rail
Buying near educational facilities such as day-care centres, primary schools and high schools is a great way to attract families to your rental. If you can find a property within walking distance of the local school, even better. If you’re happy to lease your property to students, look to buy near a university or TAFE college, but remember that most students will be looking for rentals in January each year, just before the start of thee first semester.
Traditionally, hospitals are big employers, so buying near a major hospital is likely to attract the local workers who want to live close to their work. Families are also often attracted to suburbs and properties close to medical facilities, so keep this in mind when searching for your next property for your portfolio.
It’s important to take into account the proximity of your rental to public transport, as many renters rely on trains and buses to get around. Renters like having a bus stop within walking distance or a train station close by. However, you don’t want to be too close to the train line, if possible, as the noise and traffic may also turn off potential renters.
Let’s go shopping
If you’re looking to attract a family to your rental property, make sure it’s relatively closee e’s nothing to a shopping centre or grocery store. There’s more frustrating than having to drive a longg distance to do the grocery shopping, and renters will keep this in mind when inspecting your home.
Where are the growth corridors on the Coast? What suburbs have new business hubs springing up? It’s likelyy that rents will be at a premium in suburbs located near employment hubs as families prefer to live near where d they work. Keep an eye on development in the area and investigate potential rental properties accordingly.
A home by the seaside
If you can afford to buy near water (beach or river), don’t hesitate. Views of the water will add a layer of cream to your rental property income as they are popular with renters looking for that elusive work-life balance.
Renters often look for a home that’s close to entertainment facilities such as clubs (RSLs and surf clubs), pubs, shopping strips, sporting facilities, restaurants and cinemas. You’ll get a big tick if you’re close to these facilities and may be able to charge a little more accordingly.
Nothing appeals to renters more than a peaceful property away from flight paths and noisy main roads. While it’s important to buy near services and facilities, no one wants to live on a busy road, so ensure your property is in a quiet street or area. Take a look at planned development in the area, too. No one wants to live next to a construction site.

It took a TV show and a dose of negative press for John Morrall to find himself. Now The Biggest Loser contestant is inspiring others to shed weight and live life.
was hard too – these people didn’t know me. Being recognised made me more humble, though. To have this impact on people is a big deal and something I realised could not be abused. Really, I was just a fat bloke who went on a TV show and showed his stomach, but there was enormous pressure not to go back to the way I was.” John returned to the Coast without a job or secure future, a difficult pill to swallow for such a proud man. “Going from a full-time job to pretty much no income was hard,” he says. “My wife Berryl and I also went through some incredible pressures. Working and training part-time was hard and Berryl was worried about us, but I had my
I used to walk out the door in a suit with a briefcase, but now I walk out in my trainers with a gym bag. I love working for myself. I love motivating people
ohn Morrall believes he has just battled through the toughest year of his life. A surprising statement given that in the past 12 months, he has lost more than 50 kilograms, starred in a reality TV program and started his own successful personal training business. For John, the journey began in 2007 when he was selected as a competitor on The Biggest Loser. Grossly overweight, unhappy, unhealthy and unfulfilled in many areas of his life, The Biggest Loser provided John with an opportunity to change his ways, regain his health and find happiness. And it worked, on many levels, though this success did not come without heartache and challenges. John successfully made the show but was told that due to a pre-existing heart condition he could not compete for the $250,000 prize money. Ordered to train with a paramedic at all times, John felt guilty for taking the paramedic away from other competitors and one day trained without supervision, breaking the producer’s rules. He was immediately disqualified from the show. John returned to the ow Sunshine Coast a mere shadow ed of his former self, determined eft to pick up where the show left ners off. He found two local trainers willing to help him continuee the cided transformation and soon decided ss me a that he too wanted to become his weight lo John before ed trainer. So what has transpired over the past 12 months? Why has life been so tough? “It was hard being asked to leave the show,” John says. “Reading all that negative stuff about me on the internet
dreams and goals. Would I change anything? Definitely not. We got through and our relationship is 20 times stronger than it was. We have fallen in love all over again.” Now in charge of his own destiny through his personal training business, John is the family’s ‘house husband’, responsible for the cooking, washing and housework while Berryl focuses on her career. Working for himself provides John with flexibility and a work-life balance that he hasn’t experienced before. “I used to walk out the door in a suit with a briefcase, but now I walk out in my trainers with a gym bag. I love working for myself. I just feel too free to be controlled by anyone else now. I love motivating people. I’m not superman and if I can do it, anyone can.”
Surrounded by the past in hi s pool room, his eye on the John Morrall future is a man
John’s approach to personal training isn’t about weight loss alone. “I have a holistic approach,” he says. “It’s about fitness, the mind and nutrition. But there’s no magic wand. It’s hard work. For me, it’s not about what I weigh but about achieving a look. I’m not there yet, but I will be by April.” This isn’t John’s only goal for 2009. As a former sufferer of hypertensive heart disease, John was asked by the Heart Foundation to be the organisation’s ambassador for the 2008 Doorknock Appeal. He will continue his relationship with the charity in 2009. John’s clear passion is public speaking, something he is keen to do more of, as it gives him a “buzz” to share his story and motivate others. But when he isn’t inspiring people, John can be found in his Tewantin home located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac. John and Berryl have lived here for seven years and share it with their two dogs. His pride and joy is the garden – he has done all of the landscaping himself. He runs his personal training business from an office in his garage, right next to his beloved Harley-Davidson motorbike. Just down the hallway is the media room, the perfect escape for this sports-mad man. Reminders of John’s previous life as a state manager for music retail juggernaut Brashes adorn the walls of the pool room, one of his favourite spots. Posters, photos and personally scribed messages from some of the world’s biggest celebrities decorate the room. There’s a man in the photos who looks a little familiar, and it’s hard to believe that it is the same man standing in the room – a man who is anything but a loser. John Morrall is clearly a big winner. My Property Review | February 6, 2009 33
