I

am really excited to be bringing you the second issue of My Weekly Preview. We have had some fantastic feedback from readers after last week – as well as some suggestions for improvement – so thank you to all who are picking up the magazine. In this week’s property cover story on page 36 Jarna Baudinette takes a look at investing in the Coast. So if you are visiting from down south and wondering if now is the time to buy that little investment unit, read on. On page 12 we have more socials, including a bit of the celebrity stuff too. We have a round-up of news and business starting on page 20, and a good dose of motoring. But it’s our cover story on page 8 that will get most of you talking – and emailing. Dorothy Drane asks, what makes a Sunshine Coast resident ‘a local’. Is it time spent living on and contributing to the Coast, a connection to an old family or something more that makes you a true local Coaster? Take our quiz and see how you go – I won’t shame myself by revealing my score. But on the subject of locals, if you really want to see locals in action, head down to the beach on any given weekend, and especially during school holidays, and you’ll find thousands of Sunshine Coasters contributing to our region. I reckon those who give their time to the Surf Life Saving movement and the community are true locals, no matter how long they have been here. News of the tragic death of teenager Matthew Barclay at the Gold Coast last month reminds us all of the huge contribution people like Matthew make every day on our beaches, and the thoughts of every member of the MWP team are with Matthew’s family, friends and the Surf Life Saving community.

LOCAL TRAFFIC

ONLY

PREVIEW Housing affordability, jobs, infrastructure, the environment. Which issue most affects those living on the Coast? Well, it’s actually none of these – what really gets locals talking is the concept of a local. MPP is aiming to find out what makes a ‘local’, truly local on the Sunshine Coast. WORDS Dorothy Drane [ 8 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 5, 2012

“M

y ancestors arrived with William the Conqueror in 1066. I think I can call myself a local,” an English comedian once quipped, touching on a subject that can always trigger a debate on the Sunshine Coast. So just what does it take to officially become a local? It’s a question that’s almost as popular a topic for conversation as the weather, and one that is very subjective. This can be attributed to the area’s rapid population growth during the past four decades – each new wave of migration bringing with it a new set of residents who consider themselves more local than the next. So just what does qualify a Sunshine Coast local, a true local, a local’s local? The dictionary refers to ‘local’ as meaning simply

belonging to a particular location, but many shades of the word have evolved depending on who is doing the talking. My definition, for example, is that I am an ‘old local’. That’s the description – no doubt considered cheeky by some of the other older locals – of someone who grew up and went to school here, found a job, married, bought a house and raised a family here. By this definition, no matter where else I might live, the Sunshine Coast will always be ‘home’ and therefore the ‘old local’ claim sticks forever. Those who can trace their lineage to Andrew Petrie and his son John or the two convicts who first rode to the Maroochy River in 1838 would probably say that they alone can claim the title of ‘old local’. There are still plenty of families around who are M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

1. Where will you find Gardner’s Falls? 2. David Low and Frank Nicklin both gave their names to major coastal roads. What did they have in common? 3. When did the first race run at Corbould Park? 4. What sporting event was Kenilworth famous for? 5. What’s the name of Maroochydore’s first high-rise tower? 6. What was the region’s first radio station? 7. The Big Top shopping centre in Maroochydore replaced a smaller local shopping area with a supermarket and drapery named after the man who built it. Who was he? 8. What was the name of Nambour’s old cinema? 9. What was Woombye first known as? 10. What landmark industry first put Buderim on the map?

ANSWERS:

directly descended from the pioneers who gave their name to the region’s landmarks – streets, roads, creeks, bridges – who also rightly feel that they are the real locals. In stark contrast are others who have arrived since and adopted the area as their own. They have joined clubs, lobbied for causes, actively gone out to learn more about the history of their new home and generally taken an active role in their community. That, surely, deserves some form of ‘local’ recognition. Perhaps these could be labelled ‘good local’ folk. Many might disagree, but the 1970s would make a good cut-off point for arrival to qualify as a ‘true local’. But being such a subjective issue, others who arrived in the first great wave in the 1980s would probably also like to think they are real locals by now.

DO O YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A LOCAL? TAKE OUR QUICK TEST AND SEE:

1. At the eastern entrance to Maleny, at the end of a country lane called Obi Vale South Road. 2. They were both Country Party state politicians 3. July 1985 4. The Kenilworth Rodeo 5. Maroochy Sands on Aerodrome Road 6. 4NA based in Currie Street, Nambour 7. Cliff Butt 8. The Vogue Theatre 9. Cobb’s Camp 10. The Buderim Ginger Factory, producing Merrybud ginger, was the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

While old locals embraced the growth, there were others who wanted to stop it at once. The word ‘development’ couldn’t be spoken without someone spitting on the ground

“We moved into the Mountain Creek Estate when it first opened – we’re locals now,” just doesn’t cut it with the locals who remember when the estate was still full of sandflies. And as for those who came in the second big wave in the early 1990s, it barely qualifies to even suggest being a local already, especially with those among us who remember the arguments within the council on whether or not such a huge development should be allowed around Twin Waters. It all seemed so ambitious and unimaginable when the project was put forward in 1988. The decade from 1979 to 1989 were tempestuous days, when high-rises were still controversial and the constant chant was “we don’t want to be another Gold Coast”. For the old locals, it was difficult to understand some of those who had arrived after 1975, and then loudly declared “we’re in and now let’s lock the door and throw away the key”. If they had adopted this same attitude, this noisy batch would never have arrived at all. Rather than lament the loss of her parent’s range dairy farm to a housing development, my old school buddy said how good it would be that her children would now be able to find a job in the area without moving to Brisbane, as we had done. Growth brought with it the prospect of access to all sorts of facilities, such as a TAFE college and a university, and we wouldn’t have to drive to Chermside to do our Christmas shopping. There was also hope for an efficient public transport system, although that may have been too optimistic. So while old locals embraced the growth, there were others who wanted to stop it at once. The word ‘development’ couldn’t be spoken without someone spitting on the ground. One of the big growing pains came for the farmers. Having happily worked their land for decades, they now had neighbours complaining about the crop spraying and the noise of the tractors out early before the sun got too hot. The heady days of the ‘greed is good’ ’80s came to a close and by the 1990s, many of these issues had miraculously resolved themselves and a new set of locals had settled into the place. Developments heartily protested by the 1980s locals had, by the late 1990s, become home to a whole new generation of newcomers who had no idea their backyard was once an orange orchard or a pineapple or cane farm. They loved it and they too became locals. And still they come, “voting with their feet” as the man who envisioned Chancellor Park once told me. So it would seem that to qualify as a local, it’s necessary to check at least one of three boxes: a. Lineage b. Community contribution and involvement c. Just having been around long enough to know the secret hinterland swimming holes, to know the ‘h’ is for Mooloolah and not Mooloolaba and that Alexandra Headland is singular, there’s only one of them.

How did you go? 0 to 3 out of 10 – Welcome visitor from a strange land. 4 to 6 – Nice try, give yourself another 10 years before you can claim to be a local. 7 to 9 – Getting warmer. 10 out of 10 – We are not worthy!

THERE IS LIFE BEYOND BERNARD

T

he other day while sitting at home reading the papers and having a cup of tea with my wife I asked her what she would do if I died. Now you do have to understand the context of this question. We men like to do this occasionally. Not because we are inherently mean but because we are looking for a response that validates our position within the relationship. The response we are in fact looking for is something along the lines of “oh I can’t possibly imagine life without you”. To which I would smile and say, “well I don’t plan on dropping off just yet” and then we’d go back to reading our

papers. Pathetic really, but that’s the way the male mind works. Look, ladies, life is simply easier all round if you play along with our occasional insecurities. But after I asked my question there was a moment’s hesitation. I prompted her with “you’d have to sell the house, surely you’d have to sell the house?” Do you know what my loving wife of 33 years said to me? Not only did she not tear up at the very thought of me no longer being there but she rather matter-of-factly said, “Why?” I said, “Well, you’d have to sell the house because … because … who would change light bulbs on a weekend?” Without looking up she said, “I’d have a handyman come in; I’d give him a list of things that needed fixing.” I was a little taken aback by her response but I thought, no worries, she is just not engaging with my question. I need to scale this up to another level. (Yes, sadly, men think like this.) So I responded with an even more

compelling reason why my wife would be lost – lost I tell you – without me. With something of a flourish in my voice (for this was to be my pièce de résistance) I said, “Who would take out the green rubbish bins? They’re too heavy for you to move.” But again she responded dead pan. “No, I’d pay a kid in the street to do that.” I reeled back in horror. She had thought this through. My loving wife of 33 years had thought through life Beyond Bernard. Not only that but she had thought through solutions to any problem that might present itself in such a horrible world. Then she looked up, smiled and said, “Of course darling, I’d be devastated.” She knew what I was doing all along; she was teasing me. Teasing me! And so let this be a lesson to all men thinking about playing mind games with their partner this weekend. There’s no point pretending; the truly confronting fact is that women usually know what we’re on about long before we know what we’re on about.

DISCOUNTS FOR DE-SEXING TO ENCOURAGE BETTER OWNERSHIP

aleny’s Supa IGA and more than 20 vets throughout the Coast are supporting the ‘De-Sex in the City’ campaign. Sunshine Coast Council community response manager Sheryl Krome says the aim is to encourage responsible pet ownership. “The de-sexing vouchers represent an approximate 50 per cent discount for a male cat, and an approximate 75 per cent discount for a female cat, on their normal rates. “Coast residents who take advantage of this initiative will not only be getting a massive discount with the de-sexing voucher, but will also be carrying out a good deed.” The vouchers will be available between Tuesday and Saturday 9am to 4pm, and Sunday 10am to 2pm from April 2 at SCARS, 28 Sippy Creek Road, Tanawha.

A FRUITY DROP WITH A TASTE THAT LINGERS

PREVIEW Tony Sells from Get Wines Direct tips the glass on these affordable wines. WORDS Tony Sells

Tussock Heights Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011

The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

This fruit-driven wine is intensely aromatic, is pale straw in colour and has a fragrant aroma of gooseberry and black currant leaf layered with red capsicum and a touch of dried thyme. Immediately the fruitiness of this wine fills the mouth. The palate shows lime/ grapefruit characters along with more tropical flavours such as melon and white peach. This wine has good mid palate concentration and is well balanced with juicy acidity and a lingering finish.

This wine is medium to deep garnetpurple in colour with aromas of fresh blackcurrants and red plums with nuances of Mediterranean herbs, pencil shavings, underbrush and black pepper. Medium bodied and very crisp in the mouth, it offers just enough vibrant, juicy cabernet fruit with a medium to firm level of chewy tannins. There are notes of leathery/earthy flavours as you expect with Colonial Estate reds, although this seems to have more focussed dimensions featuring powerful blackcurrant fruit and dark chocolate and it finishes grainy, chocolatey and fresh with lingering acidity, yet somehow it all balances.

PRICE $9.99

Perle de Vigne French Sparkling Brut This wine is an intense deep straw yellow with a full, generous mousse and vivacious bubbles. Coloured pale gold with small, bright bubbles, the wine has an intense aroma of citrus fruits, in particular grapefruit, and of fresh cut flowers. A lively, fresh palate shows citrus fruit characteristics. It has a zingy vibrancy to it and finishes with plenty of crisp acidity. PRICE $9.99

NSW floods affect area the size of Spain

The NSWs summer flood crisis was the most significant for a generation and affected an area the size of Spain, State Emergency Service (SES) Commissioner Murray Kear says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been the most significant flood event that inland NSW has witnessed in a generation,â&#x20AC;?

Australia can expect to pay about $130 million each for its first two Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircraft and an average of about $85 million if it opts to buy 100. These increased cost figures come in the US Defence Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selected acquisition report for 2011 (SAR11) presented to Congress on Thursday. The report is an update on major US defence programs including the Lockheed Martin F-35 JSF. Despite the apparent price hikes,

the Australian Defence Force is confident final prices will be lower because the most recent fixed-price incentive contract was significantly below the SAR10 cost estimate. Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first two aircraft will be produced in a later contract lot. For Australia, SAR11 indicates Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first two aircraft, scheduled for delivery in the US from 2014, will cost about $130 million, based on 2012 prices and a $US1.03 exchange rate.

New breast cancer gene discovered during study Researchers may have found the key to unlocking the genetic code behind a host of serious diseases, following the discovery of a new breast cancer gene mutation. A large international study led by University of Melbourne researchers has identified a mutation linked to breast cancer attached to the newly identified gene, called XRCC2. Lead researcher Melissa Southey says the discovery, using high-speed technology, will hopefully mean more gene mutations responsible for causing breast cancer could be rapidly identified in the next few years.

Historic win for Suu Kyi in Burma by-election Thousands of people were seen dancing in the street as Burma’s opposition claimed a historic victory this week. Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi – a Nobel Peace Prize laureate – won her first bid for a seat in parliament following by-elections. The former political prisoner won an estimated 82 per cent of the vote in a by-election in the constituency of Kawhmu, south of Rangoon, says the National League of Democracy (NLD). Suu Kyi was locked up by the former junta for most of the past 22 years. It appeared Suu Kyi would win in a landslide in her seat, with many of her colleagues to take seats in Burma’s lower house.

Ever wonder why your stomach gurgles? You feel bloated, or you suffer with Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Are you often unhappy, tired and unmotivated? Find out why! Your digestive system is to you the same as the root system is to a tree. Without it, you cannot absorb the nutrients you need to survive, just as a tree absorbs nutrients from the soil. Imagine the damage that can be caused when you upset your root system. The key to repairing the foundations of your health is to find out what triggers your digestive system problems. There is always a cause. At Advanced Wellness & Behavioural Centre, we use the latest technology and testing to accurately determine what is causing your mood and digestive imbalance. Constantly treating symptoms with bandaid methods will never repair your health long term, though it will make you reliant on medications or supplements, which is not really the goal for your long term health. The goal is to investigate, find the trigger, repair the damage and live a healthier life! Have you ever wondered why you feel heavy, bloated, tired and moody? These symptoms don’t just come on for no apparent reason. IBS is a bowel that is irritated and sensitive. Sensitive to what though? We find that most people who have IBS seem to be reacting to their healthy diet, developing an inflamed gut. When you’re in this state your body may find it hard to digest your food and so you’ll feel tired and drawn regardless of how good your diet is. The level of inflammation in the

Often when you have an irritated bowel you can almost pin point exactly when it started. Often when something very stressful occurred in your life, you picked up a stomach bug or after an overseas trip. Regardless of how you got it, it must be corrected, as these things don’t fix themselves with time, otherwise you will forever have nutrient deficiencies and the case is usually an increase in severity of symptoms where no medication will work.

The number of children diagnosed with autism in the US has risen 23 per cent since 2009, with one in 88 children affected according to official health data. Previous figures had shown the disorder was found in as many as one in 110 US children. The rise may be due in part to improved identification of autism cases, experts say, particularly among children younger than three years of age.

A bid to trademark the word ‘beatle’ for use on electric wheelchairs has been blocked by EU judges.

Any sign of mood fluctuations will give an indication of brain neurotransmitter imbalance. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that makes you happy, confident, and feeling good, but its levels are affected by your levels of circulating oestrogen. Dopamine is our happy, excitement and motivation neurotransmitter which is affected by progesterone levels. Both neurotransmitters and hormone levels are affected by the food you eat as these are made in the gut and used in the gut in huge levels. Digestion is a key influence on brain function.

KEEPING UP WITH THE DOLLAR

Chris Harris is from Ord Minnett in Buderim

T

he Australian dollar has held up well against the US dollar, and it is feasible that it could maintain its current level for a while yet. It’s worthwhile, however, looking at a few scenarios where we could envisage Australian dollar weakness or US dollar strength. Here, three scenarios are outlined, which we can keep an eye on. One scenario that would strengthen the US dollar is if the US progressed from a “soft money” recovery to a “hard money” one. This would see the US Federal Reserve withdrawing stimulus and narrowing the difference in interest rates. While the cash rate won’t budge in the near term, any suggestion of another round of quantitative easing in the US has been taken off the table. The move up in longer-term US bond yields is also indicative of such a recovery. Another scenario assumes that overseas investment activity in Australia cools, including leveraged carry trades (where money is

borrowed in low interest rate countries and invested in higher yielding currencies) and foreign central bank buying of Australian-denominated assets (including bonds). The remaining scenarios would be bad news for our market, namely a correction in commodity prices, local economic weakness or a generalised flight from risk globally. As a point of interest, mining stocks, such as BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals and Newcrest, typically capture positive exposure to a rising Australian dollar. Intuitively, this should not be the case. Companies selling commodities priced in US dollars should be negatively impacted by a rising Australian dollar. However, this is mitigated by the fact that commodity prices move higher with a lower US dollar. This is in part because producers outside the US require higher prices in dollar terms to maintain their margins. Also, given Australia’s role as a major commodity provider, our currency tends to move in sync with global economic growth. As ever in finance, there are many moving parts and themes can change quickly. Maybe an overseas trip in 2012 is not such a bad idea.

PLAZA REVAMP A STEP CLOSER

F

eedback from customers has helped shape refinements to the proposed $350 million expansion of Sunshine Plaza. The centre’s owners this week responded to a Sunshine Coast Council and state authorities’ request for more information on the proposed development, which stands to add more than 35,000 square metres of retail space and accommodate the Coast’s first David Jones department store. Kylie Riches, spokeswoman for Lend Lease, which manages the Plaza, says the revised scheme responds to customer feedback and outcomes identified in the SouthEast Queensland Regional Plan 2009-2031 and supports the council’s planning scheme. “The proposed redevelopment of the centre is geared towards enhancing Sunshine Plaza’s role as the region’s leading retail and leisure destination,” Lend Lease’s head of retail development, Gary Horwitz, says. “It also supports the council and

the State Government’s vision for the Maroochydore principal activity centre.” The significant redevelopment will bring the number of car parking spaces to more than 5000. Lend Lease says the expansion will provide more than 1000 extra retail positions at the developed centre and more than 5700 positions in total, resulting from the construction works and the flow-on effect to related industries and providers. “The plan is to extend the centre along Cornmeal Creek, providing new pedestrian and cycle promenades, and a public realm on both north and south banks. The indoor and outdoor retail experience which has made Sunshine Plaza such a distinctive destination will be continued, providing activation and appeal,” Horwitz says. The development is now in the council’s hands, with the owners hoping to commence construction in 2013, with a 2015 completion target.

NEW TARGET RINGING O OUT U

MAKING LOCAL BUSINESS A PRIORITY oast business leaders have called on the new State Government to slash red tape and drive job creation. It follows the LNP’s landslide victory at the state election, where Campbell Newman was installed as Premier. Sunshine Coast Chamber of Commerce President Ross Hepworth says the business community has identified several key issues it wants the Newman Government to address immediately. “In terms of diversifying our economy, the best thing the LNP can do is get on and build the hospital as fast as it can to ensure there is a location strategy around construction and jobs, so those contracts go to local firms and people are not exported,” Hepworth says. “We’d like the government to consider decentralisation, to bring back government departments to the Sunshine Coast and bring government jobs to the Sunshine Coast.” He says red tape surrounding employment, and hiring and firing, is crippling business. “The regulations business has to comply with are horrendous,” Hepworth says. Sunshine Coast Business Council has outlined

&

its five key priorities for the region. As well as moves to slash red tape and establish a government department at Sippy Downs, it has called for a jobs target of 250,000 to support a projected population of 500,000; better government engagement with the business Ross Hepworth community; a focus on transformational projects; and funding commitments for the university hospital and airport upgrade. An ‘economic directions’ forum to rally business drew people from across the region, who were briefed on Sunshine Coast Business Council’s research. It provides insight into the projected profile of the region by the year 2031 and recommends crucial steps that local, State and Federal Government should undertake collaboratively with local business to drive a sustainable, healthy, diverse and vital Sunshine Coast, a spokesperson said.

THE HEART OF A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

P We now have an indication that sleep can impact heart health

eople who sleep less than six hours a night or more than eight are more likely to suffer heart problems than people who sleep between six and eight hours. A US study confirms the conclusions of previous, smaller studies, and is based on what researchers describe as a nationally representative sample of 3000 people covering five separate heart ailments and their links to sleep duration. The subjects for the study were people over age 45 who participated in a survey of health issues in US households known as the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Subjects were asked to describe their sleep patterns and were also asked if they were ever told they had congestive heart failure, heart attack, coronary artery disease, angina or stroke.

People who said they had too little sleep each night were two times more likely to have a stroke or heart attack and 1.6 more likely to have congestive heart failure than people who slept between six and eight hours nightly, the researchers say. People who said they slept more than eight hours a night were two times more likely to have angina and 1.1 times more likely to have coronary artery disease. “We now have an indication that sleep can impact heart health, and it should be a priority,” says principal investigator Rohit Arora, chairman of cardiology and professor of medicine, at the Chicago Medical School. “Based on these findings, it seems getting six to eight hours of sleep every day probably confers the least risk for cardiovascular disease over the long term.” Source: AAP

Naysayers tell us our fascination with cyberspace is threatening the social fabric of our society, at best making us reclusive, at worst robbing us of social skills, compromising our physical heath and, in the extreme, removing us from any real sense of belonging or attachment to the place where we live. Tragic stories of people dying alone – and going undiscovered for weeks – are not unusual. Maybe the online world is simply better, a distraction from the humdrum of the daily grind, offering users the chance to do things they could only imagine in the physical world and the ability to switch off when things get tough. The Second Life website, an internet success story whose launch had social commentators buzzing, offers users a design-your-own online avatar through which to establish a virtual life, at times at financial cost. Its homepage tempts the curious with the chance to “have fun, flirt or simply flaunt your creativity in a world where you can experience and create anything you can imagine”. All without leaving your computer, of course. So are we all becoming cyber geeks, or is this revolution merely a product of our technology-hungry society? It challenges how we see community, says social trends analyst and director of AustraliaSCAN David Chalke, who believes community goes beyond our physical environment,

and offers us a chance to connect more widely than we were able to before the advent of technology. These communities provide the support and interaction one might have traditionally found in face-to-face meetings. “Yes, we are busier these days and there is not as much time for incidental meetings as you are more likely to drive to places rather than walk or ride a bike, so that removes those incidental connections you make with people around you, but it does not mean you are less connected,” says Chalke. “Community is not just about geography – that is the weakest form of community. Just because you live in a particular space doesn’t mean you like it or that you have much in common with the people who also live there.” Notions that we had somehow lost a time in society where people were better connected, had more time for each other and were close with their neighbours, are exaggerated, he says. “The reality is we may not like our neighbours any more now than we did decades ago – the lunatic with the rabid dog who burns off rubbish in the backyard whenever you put your washing out is as much a pain now as he was a decade ago. So there is a high element of myth to this suggestion we used to do a lot of chatting over the fence. “That argument is the nostalgia effect – the sun was always sunnier and the fruit always tasted fruitier.” Chalke says our love of the internet has actually strengthened important bonds, helping foster a feeling of belonging, rather than depriving us of traditional interaction. “It means we can keep chatting to that mate in New

York so it helps tighten friendships and bonds within our communities.” Dr Kay Pozzebon, lecturer in psychology at the University of the Sunshine Coast, says the need for social interaction is in-built. “It’s a basic need. It’s something we have to have, while there are individual differences surrounding how much we need,” she says. “This idea of a sense of community can be met in different ways today. Whereas in the past when people talked over the fence to their neighbours, today maybe they get a sense of community through social media and broader community participation. “We are talking about generational changes, for example, young people in the community are more accustomed to getting that connection through social media.” Conditions such as depression, anxiety and stress are ever-prevalent. Are these the symptoms of a society that has forgotten how to reach out? Not necessarily, says Pozzebon. “What we know is that with some illnesses and disorders such as depression and anxiety and stress, social support is key. However, the way people get that now may not be through the traditional means. “We know that the Sunshine Coast is a place a lot of people migrate to, they don’t have that family support here so technology can help them through that period of adjustment.” Skype is an increasingly popular way to extend support networks across great distances, says Pozzebon. Still, mental illness such as depression continues to impact our society.

Jane Morris, practice manager for crisis support at UnitingCareCommunity, which runs Lifeline services in Queensland, says anxiety, depression and loneliness are among the main reasons people call Lifeline – and calls are on the rise. “Supportive social networks are certainly a protective factor for mental wellbeing issues and social relationships for individuals, families and communities are important in stabilising and caring for our mental wellbeing,” she says. “People who are isolated from these social networks are more likely to utilise the Lifeline crisis line and other of our services.” Morris expects demand for the Lifeline crisis line to continue as communities and individuals deal with everyday life stresses, but also the repercussions of unexpected events such as disasters. “We have seen a steady increase in demand over the past five years on our services and we don’t expect this trend to change.” Pozzebon says it’s often out of the greatest challenges, some of the strongest bonds are formed. “When some significant events happen in parts of the community, they can help connect people at a more traditional level … if you think about the flooding we have seen in recent times, we see how people want to help each other and they forge bonds,” she says. But were we really happier in years gone by, before the internet and today’s technology? Not according to Chalke, who feels technology gets too bad a rap. “I’ll stick to a world with bypass surgery and antibiotics – you can go back to the 1950s if you want,” he says.

HOLDEN HATCHES PLAN TO CRUZE BACK TO THE TOP

MAKE/MODEL Holden Cruze hatch

WORDS Peter Atkinson

I

f you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. That seems to be the new battle plan for Holden – which for the first time in living memory is no longer the maker of Australia’s favourite car. That title now belongs to the Mazda3, which last year toppled the mighty Holden Commodore from its perennial perch as Australia’s top-selling passenger vehicle after an unprecedented reign of 15 years. Before that it was the Ford Falcon, and before that the Commodore again. Mazda’s triumph was hailed as a watershed for the Australian car industry – evidence that smaller hatchbacks had finally replaced big six-cylinder sedans in the hearts of typical Aussie families. So where does that leave Holden? As the carmaker watched the inexorable decline of Commodore sales, it has been gearing up its small-car arsenal – first with the very smart Cruze sedan, and now, just in time to meet the Mazda3 head on, with the Australian-built Cruze hatchback. So, can the Cruze make Australians forget about big cars? Probably not any time soon. A lifetime romance is a hard thing to break. But the arrival of the Cruze hatch to complement the excellent sales results of its sedan sibling (the Cruze was also among the nation’s top-selling vehicles last year) gives the Lion brand a double-edged sword to fend off the foreign vehicle invasion. As you’d expect, the new hatch boasts most

MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU

of the things we (and thousands of buyers) liked about the Cruze sedan – with a bit more boot space thrown in. The Aussie-built version has been specifically tweaked to suit our driving conditions and preferences. It’s offered with a choice of three engines – naturally aspirated or turbo-charged petrol, or a fuel-efficient turbo-diesel – and in four trim levels. We drove two versions of the Cruze hatch over a two-week period; first the diesel-engined CDX and then the turbo-charged petrol model. The diesel was reasonably impressive – not a standout, but quiet, smooth and frugal. It mated well with the six-speed auto and offered decent throttle response and masses of mid-range torque. In fact, the auto seemed a much better match with the diesel than with the 1.8-litre petrol engine we tested in the sedan. The turbo petrol engine, the 1.4iTi (Intelligent Turbo Induction), feels bigger than its small capacity would suggest, possessing impressive torque for a smallish four-cylinder, plus reasonable punch as it reaches the higher rev-ranges. We thought the sedan was, dollar for dollar, one of the best Australian-built cars we’ve ever driven – and the hatch has consolidated that view. Can the Cruze hatch help Holden stem the sales tide? Certainly the sedan has taken some big steps in that direction. The hatch is likely to provide even more safety in numbers.

UNDERWATER CAR STARTS FIRST TIME

T

he flash flooding that recently created chaos on the central Sunshine Coast and made news around the country claimed many vehicles. Abandoned on flooded roads as their owners fled to safety or submerged in the underground car parks of apartment buildings, many vehicles received extensive flood damage. But one lucky couple

visiting the Sunshine Coast from the UK were thanking their lucky stars that they had chosen to rent a new Toyota Yaris. The brand-new Yaris the couple had rented from Fleet Hire on Aerodrome Road, Maroochydore spent almost two days in the flooded basement car park of the Mandolin apartment building at Alexandra Headland,

with water covering it seats and lapping the bottom of the steering wheel. Eventually the car park was pumped out by the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, revealing rows of waterlogged vehicles. They had no expectation the Yaris would be driveable, but the Firies encouraged the couple to give it a go, saying, “It’s a Toyota.” To the amazement of the UK couple, the Toyota started first time. While many other vehicles in the car park were towed away, they drove the car out of the underground park. “It’s pretty amazing,” says Quinton Benning from Fleet Hire. “Despite being under water for so long, the engine and electrics all worked with no problems. “The only issue is that the speakers in the front doors aren’t working, but then it hasn’t finished drying out yet!”

The car was one of many that Fleet Hire had purchased from Ken Mills Toyota. Dealer principal Brett Mills says, “Most people are aware of Toyota’s legendary reputation for reliability, and this is a perfect example of that reliability in action. These visitors were totally stunned at the toughness and reliability of the Yaris.”

T

he new expanded Lexus RX line – revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show – offers a raft of features. A redesigned exterior, all-new on-board technology, greater exterior and interior colour schemes, new steering wheel, a revised instrument cluster and a second-generation Remote Touch Interface (RTI) are all features of the new model. The RX 350 and 450h offer Sport Luxury

models along with a newly adopted Luxury and F Sport model – replacing the outgoing Prestige and Sport model. New HID or LED headlamps complement the all-new frontal design and give the RX range a more muscular stance. F Sport variant will be available for RX 350 and 450h. F Sport models feature unique exterior styling, including shadow chrome 19-inch alloys, F Sport badging and unique mesh grille inserts, as well as a unique black and grey leather-accented interior, front bucket seats and alloy pedals. Backing up its muscular stance is a re-engineered handling package, featuring unique suspension tune and lateral performance dampers/ braces. First adopted on Lexus CT 200h, the performance dampers along with RX F Sport’s new suspension tune deliver greater driving enjoyment and increased response to driver inputs. RX 350 F Sport will also gain paddle shifters, allowing drivers to exploit the performance

potential of the six-speed sequential gearbox. All RX models will feature an updated, secondgeneration Lexus Remote Touch system, making activation of on-board systems easier for driver and passenger. Digital Audio (DAB+) is offered standard across the range, providing greater sound clarity and choice of stations. In addition to the existing ECO and EV driving modes, all RX 450h hybrid models benefit from the adoption of a new Sport driving mode, which provides greater response to driver inputs for increased driving enjoyment. Lexus Australia chief executive Tony Cramb says the changes bring greater appeal, specification and enjoyment to the popular SUV. “The refresh to RX Line as debuted in Geneva will only strengthen the appeal of what is already one of Lexus’ most awarded and popular vehicles,” Cramb says. “RX will be the third vehicle to adopt Lexus’ new corporate face, bringing with it greater driving enjoyment, visual appeal and innovative features. “The addition of RX F Sport only reinforces our commitment to offering engaging vehicles and demonstrates our long-term commitment to more than doubling our F Sport range by the end of 2012,” adds Cramb.

The only 3 worth considering. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class range.

The reasons for choosing a Mercedes-Benz C-Class keep adding up. The C-Class Sedan reignites the thrill of driving with its envious list of standard appointments. The C-Class Coupé, with its alluring lines and dynamically sculptured body, begs to be admired. And the C-Class Estate, with its innate instinct for the road, handles like a sedan and features everyday practicality that takes life in its stride.

OPENING UP THE CASE FOR

INVESTMENT PREVIEW Now is as good a time as any to consider tapping into the Sunshine Coast’s property market, particularly for first-time investors. Experts share their tips on sizing up the right value for money. WORDS Jarna Baudinette

I

t’s the Easter school holidays and one thing is certain – the Sunshine Coast will be a busy place over the next couple of weeks. As well as locals taking advantage of a much-needed break, there will be thousands of visitors from across Australia enjoying our beaches, cafes and relaxed lifestyle. As Julie Gatehouse reported in last week’s cover story, more than three million tourists visited the Coast in 2011, and over the years our region has become a second home for some, who holiday here regularly and dream of making a permanent move one day. For those who are not quite ready to pack up and head north, investing in property on the Coast is the next best thing. While at the moment house prices remain relatively subdued, the region has several large-scale infrastructure projects under way, meaning there are good prospects for future growth. And with increasingly high levels of rental demand, now may be the perfect time for tourists and locals alike to consider purchasing an investment property.

“absolutely” the best time for people to consider securing an investment property on the Coast. “Prices have been very low for a number of years and are just beginning to increase,” he says. “Some of the many factors contributing to this are interest rates having dropped and then stabilised, and the amount of infrastructure going into the Sunshine Coast.” If you do your homework and choose the right property in the right area, owning an investment can be a great way to regularly supplement your income. Everyone has different financial circumstances, and Dwyer says the key to deciding where to buy is to assess your own investment goals and choose a property that best suits your long-term plan.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK

“It depends on what you ultimately want the investment for,” he says. “Do you want the property as purely an investment, for rental return and capital growth, or are you thinking you might want to live there in the future? Or is it that you possibly want to use the property as a holiday home?” Whatever your circumstances, Dwyer says personal preference should not be your first criteria when buying an investment property. “Don’t buy it because you particularly like it – look at the figures first and the property second. As everybody says, location is key for an investment property. And the type of property is key for the rental return.”

In late February the Real Estate Institute of Queensland reported the state’s residential property market had stabilised, with prices recording “mostly steady results” across SouthEast Queensland in the December quarter. Investor and first-home buyer activity is strengthening as buyers recognise “prices have plateaued in many areas”, and this steadying of the market offers hope there will be no further significant price drops – and a return to long-term price growth over the next five to 10 years. On the Sunshine Coast our median house price showed a drop of just 0.6 per cent compared with 4.4 per cent over the September quarter, leading REIQ CEO Anton Kardash to suggest the local market “appears to be turning a corner”. Local investment consultant Jason Dwyer, from Dwyer Property Investments, says it is

Prices have been very low for a number of years and are just beginning to increase

CAPITALISE ON RENTAL SCHEME In the current market, achieving an optimal rental return should be an investor’s primary aim, with capital growth an added bonus. With rents rising, the number of tenants seeking quality housing at an affordable price is set to increase, and as well as addressing this issue the Federal Government’s National Rental Affordability Scheme is offering investors the security of a cash-flow-positive asset. Introduced in 2008, NRAS was designed to increase Australia’s supply of affordable rental housing by allowing investors to purchase a property (typically a unit or townhouse) which is then rented out at 20 per cent below market

You’re going to sacrifice $5000 a year in rental income, which is taxable, and in return you’ll receive just over $9500 of tax-free income Russell Dell, Belle Property Buderim

value. In return owners receive government subsidies, which mean they come out on top at tax time. Several Sunshine Coast-based developers and builders have signed on to the scheme, and while you might assume lower rent prices automatically mean a lower return, agent Russell Dell, from Belle Property Buderim, says the equation is simple for would-be investors. “You’re going to sacrifice $5000 a year in rental income, which is taxable, and in return you’ll receive just over $9500 of tax-free income,” Dell says. This $9500 is a combination of State and Federal Government subsidies which are available each year for 10 years. A rent price that is below market value means longer tenancies and very low vacancy rates. Dell says NRAS properties are not governmentfunded housing, but rather are designed to assist those people the government calls communityessential workers – police officers, nurses, teachers, office workers and so on – find affordable places to live. Prospective tenants must go through a thorough approval process and property management is contracted out to licensed, experienced managers. Dell says NRAS properties are perfect for first-time or interstate investors, as they are “basically a hands-off investment”. “This is as good as it gets for first-time investors. To qualify for the scheme the property has to be brand new, so they’re trouble free, and the government has very strict criteria around building materials, sustainability and so on.” For a proposed development to be approved

it must meet a crucial final requirement – evidence of high rental demand in the area. Dell is marketing developments at Beerwah and Nambour – both are railway towns a short commute from Brisbane, and Nambour in particular benefits from nearby hospital infrastructure – and says high demand for rentals generally has an “upward impact” on capital growth in an area.

THINK LONG-TERM Stuart Collins is the Sunshine Coast branch manager of the Housing Industry Association, and says while the region’s new housing activity has been slow of late, there are good opportunities for investors to pick up a bargain in the established housing market. A few weeks ago MPP reported on the trend of renovating to rent – investors tidying up tired rental properties to obtain a better return – and for those investors who prefer to be a little more hands on, the current market presents plenty of opportunities to buy a cheap older home. “New housing has been in decline but the renovation market has held its own and continues to – when people purchase these homes they often need some modernisation, and that’s where our industry has the opportunity to diversify and create jobs,” Collins says. “People will refurbish or add extra bedrooms, and that’s what we’re seeing at the moment.” Regardless of your investment choice – be it a new freestanding home or unit, or an existing house needing the love of a good landlord – Collins and Dwyer both emphasise that potential investors need to think long-term.

“Investing in property on the Sunshine Coast is not a get-rich-quick scheme, it’s a long-term plan for future equity growth,” Dwyer says, adding that investors should be looking at a “five-year minimum and a 10-year optimum” for growth. Collins agrees, saying while prices may have softened over the past few years, a look at the long-term data offers a much brighter outlook. “There’s been a steady increase in property prices [over that time],” he says. “You see prices go down one year, but over a 10-year period prices have actually gone up eight to nine per cent. In relative terms there has been significant appreciation. “If you analyse all the various investment opportunities I would much prefer to invest in property than in the share market,” Collins adds. “You need to be in for the medium to long term, but you generally find property does hold its own. “On the Sunshine Coast we have a substantial undersupply of housing. We’ve also got a population that continues to increase, a great lifestyle, all these infrastructure projects and people pouring in. And those people all need a roof over their heads.”

LOCAL DEVELOPER MEETING THE NEEDS OF COAST BUYERS

SERVICE EXTENDED

T

he Sunshine Coast is soon to be home to a number of large infrastructure projects, and a local investment expert predicts this will have a positive impact on our property market. Jason Dwyer, general manager of Dwyer Property Investments, says, “I am constantly surprised how few people invest in property when it is one of the most sound investments in Australia. “With the tax incentives and high demand for rental housing it seems the obvious way to build wealth, and I am pleased to offer a unique service to those who want to invest but are a bit wary of the process.” This service is an extension of Dwyer Quality Homes, which has been building dream homes and investment properties on the Sunshine Coast for over 26 years. Dwyer says over the years many clients had spoken to the builder about helping with their investment properties, leading to the creation of a service to meet their needs. “Investors are dealing direct with the builder so there is no added cost whatsoever,” he says. “We have the expertise and local knowledge, and there has never been a better time to build with the recent State Government incentives.” Dwyer says Dwyer Property Investments can assist potential investors throughout the process, from “understanding the client’s needs to the end result, which is managing the property free for three years”. The company also offers a rental guarantee. “What we are saying if you can afford $70 a week we’ll be able to build you an investment property that will provide a nest egg for you and your family, and we are taking the risk out of it,” Dwyer says. “We build quality homes and we want people to be able to invest in their future and feel comfortable and confident with their decision.”

MPP takes a look at the projects from Sea Vista Developments.

H

eaded by Alf Sorbello, Sea Vista Developments has been constructing home for the past six years, and after completing several developments of luxury townhouses and villas, the company has a good understanding of what Sunshine Coast buyers are looking for in a home or investment property. Sea Vista Developments is a locally owned family business. Here are a few of the company’s developments: 14-18 Bade Street, Nambour offers buyers the opportunity to own a quality three-bedroom townhouse in the heart of Nambour. These contemporary homes are close to schools, the hospital, shops and transport. A unique feature is the stream that runs through the middle of the complex, which is complemented by large walkways stretching from one side of the complex to the other. Each townhouse has three large bedrooms and ensuite, separate dining and lounge areas, large laundry, remote-control double lock-up garage, alarm system, functional kitchen, extremely large deck off the master bedroom and a deck leading out to a private courtyard.

22 Coastal Avenue in Beerwah is perfect for Brisbane commuters 22 Coastal Avenue, Beerwah offers 12 new residential townhouses. Central to Beerwah and perfectly located for Brisbane commuters, the uncrowded landscaped sites offer a private green setting with generous living opening out to the courtyard. With three spacious bedrooms and ensuite off the main, these townhouses would suit both owner-occupiers and investors. Kawana Forest Development is coming soon and is the latest release from Sea Vista Developments on the corner of White Cedar Drive and Woodlands Boulevard, opposite Pacific Lutheran School. ‘Forest Views’ will consist of 25 contemporary, two- and three-bedroom townhouses with resort-style pool and barbecue area plus a boutique retail complex with five commercial outlets which are to be leased. “I have lived on the Coast for seven years and I have been building townhouses right from day one, and have seen the market price rise and fall,” Sorbello says. “But at the moment in my opinion it is the best time to buy. “My last two new townhouse projects at Bade Street, Nambour and Sunset Street, Beerwah have NRAS certification, so the investor is in the box seat.”

NEW STYLE IS SET A pioneering architect creates a new coastal housing legacy in a local Stockland community.

J

ohn Mainwaring has a heartfelt sense of the Sunshine Coast that only comes from living here for more than 20 years. The multi-award-winning architect has been at the forefront of design in the region since the 1980s and he has now taken a leading role in the creation of a new style of Sunshine Coast living. The Bower Series at Stockland’s Bells Reach community is a unique form of housing – contemporary terraces on freehold titles that start at only $204,940. Homes in the series are double storey and range from two-bedroom, two-bathroom, singlegarage dwellings to three-bedroom homes. Stepping out of your front door and into a leafy park with a nearby cafe is usually a lifestyle associated with resort-style living on the Coast or CBD living in larger cities. “But why shouldn’t this lifestyle be available in new areas for people who don’t want big homes that take little inspiration from their surroundings?’’ asks Mainwaring. “The ‘McMansion’ has lost its appeal. Large cars are being replaced by bicycles, public transport and smaller hybrid

[ 40 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 5, 2012

40.indd 1

cars. Houses are moving the same way,’’ he adds. “From an urban design perspective, privacy and community amenity has been a priority for each house and its relationship to its neighbours. The spaces are larger and more flexible, as well as using and maximising indoor/outdoor space to suit a range of different occupants.’’ Working for more than 30 years, Mainwaring has developed a characteristic Australian coastal architecture. His work has won dozens of awards for projects as wide ranging as his own home at Noosa to Viridian Resort at Noosa and the redesign of Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall.

Having spent time overseas in places like England, Denmark and Japan, he has seen first-hand how smarter designed homes can work in a variety of situations. “The way we live at home is changing rapidly,” he says. “For example, so many people shop for fresh food every day or two, or choose to eat out more regularly after a long day at work. So we see people downsizing their fridge and saving on energy costs.” Mainwaring says people are also making better use of outdoor spaces but without the big maintenance-hungry backyards of years gone by. “At Bells Reach pockets of homes will be interspersed with a neighbourhood centre and great local parks, encouraging people to spend time outside their home but still in the heart of their community.’’ The Bower Series is unique in South-East Queensland because planning laws don’t allow this style of semi-detached home on freehold title in Brisbane. “Anywhere else and these homes would be part of a body corporate arrangement, and people are aware of the extra costs that come with bodies corporate,’’ Mainwaring says.

ALL WHITE FOR MINERS A local agent believes the market is stabilising as the Sunshine Coast looks to mine the resources boom.

T

he Sunshine Coast property market appears to be stabilising, dropping just 0.6 per cent in February compared with 4.4 per cent in September. Terry Taylor from Which Property says this could be the precursor to the market improving. “Not only have we had strong sales since Christmas, but we’ve had a continuous stream of enquiries from investors and owner-occupiers about our luxury beachfront development, White Shells,” says Taylor. “This high level of interest in prestigious apartments indicates the Sunshine Coast property market is turning a corner.” While both sales and interest could be attributed to the negotiable pricing and high quality of the 48-apartment seafront development, another factor is the region’s commitment to riding the resources boom. The Sunshine Coast Council’s Resource Sector Action Plan, due to be finalised shortly, looks to cash in on Queensland’s mining sector by increasing the opportunities for fly-in, fly-out workers to live on the Sunshine Coast. White Shells is an example of a quality development available to these workers, as it is just 10 minutes from the airport, and provides a welcome escape from the mines. White Shells has proved incredibly popular with investors, and as a result, only a handful of apartments remain to be sold. The two- and three-bedroom

apartments feature high-quality finishes including stone benchtops, ducted air-conditioning and European appliances, and some boast private roof terraces. All residents have access to a rooftop terrace, with two spas, a large pool and stunning views of the ocean and hinterland. Prices for the remaining apartments have been reduced and range from $545,000 to $845,000. White Shells is located just out of Coolum. It is surrounded by good infrastructure, including schools, shops, parklands and golf courses, and the Resource Sector Action Plan promises further growth. The marketing agent says homes at White Shells are exceptional value and all reasonable offers will be considered.

WHAT IS NRAS? NRAS is short for National Rental Affordability Scheme. The NRAS scheme is a Federal and State Government backed incentive scheme launched in 2008 which is designed to encourage investors to develop additional new houses for the rental market and provide an affordable rent program for average Australian wage earners as individuals, couples and families. The government aims to achieve this by providing a tax incentive for investors in NRAS properties in return for the properties being rented at a discounted rate. The NRAS scheme is not housing commission or social housing. Owners of NRAS Properties will continue to get the tax incentives for ten years from acquisition.

SCENARIO Peter earns $75,000 per year and his wife Michelle works part-time earning $30,000 per year. They have two children and own their own home valued at $500,000 with a mortgage of $280,000. They purchase a house and land package for $350,000 and the completed house has a market rental income of $350 per week. The interest rate on their loan is 6.79%. If Peter and Michelle don’t purchase an investment property they pay more tax and don’t have the wealth opportunity that an investment property offers. If they choose a non-NRAS property investment property they will need to reduce their living expenses to accommodate their investment. Choosing an NRAS Property gives Peter and Michelle huge tax savings, they don’t have to adjust their lifestyle because the property is cashflow positive, and they have the future wealth opportunities from the growth in value of their investment property.

PRE-EASTER PICK-UP

O

n Monday, The Sydney Morning Herald reported Sydney had its best weekend for auctions since Spring 2010, with 750 properties going under the hammer on Saturday alone. The lead-up to Easter is always as a peak time for auctions and this was true for the Sunshine Coast market, with agents reporting good attendance and a couple of big sales. Steve Turner from Platinum Properties says around 50 people showed up to the auction at 4 Seafarer Court, Bokarina on Saturday, and seven groups registered to bid with auctioneer Gordon Macdonald from Jason Andrew Auctioneers. “Bidding opened at $500,000 and went up slowing in $5000 and $10,000 bids, then a $50,000 bid taking it to $640,000 – that blew a few people out of the water,” Turner says, adding that bidding went up steadily from that point to the sale price of $710,000. “Local Sunshine Coast people were the proud buyers, and they purchased the property because of the proximity to the beach and schools and the quiet, cul-de-sac location. They intend to renovate and keep it as their family home.” Auction fans get a chance to relax over the coming days – because of the Easter public holidays there are no auctions scheduled, so enjoy the long weekend.

and secure a waterfront location in what will become a major hub of the Sunshine Coast. “The recent publication of articles by Michael Matusik and Michael Pascoe predicting the Birtinya/Kawana area as being a ‘hotspot’ for investment, has triggered strong enquiry from across the country,” Hunter adds. With the $10,000 Queensland Government Building Boost Grant expiring on April 30, many buyers are now securing a newly built property. Over the next few years development in the Kawana hub is set to include a town centre, major upgrades to transport infrastructure, a new TAFE campus, kilometres of cycling tracks and acres of parkland. A walk from Bokarina beach and

700 metres from the hospital precinct, Saltwater will attract health professionals and students. Saltwater apartments have been designed with students and shift workers in mind, with many homes incorporating study desks and shelving, funky kitchens and easy-care tiled living areas. Ron Grabbe is the director of RGD Property Group and has built 500 apartments in the Kawana area over the past 10 years. He says, “The waterfront Saltwater site is truly unique and we have designed the four-level Saltwater north and the five-level Saltwater east to take advantage of the water views and our enviable climate.” Visit www.saltwaterapartments.com.au or call Gail Hunter on 0419 513 529 for more.

he developers of waterfront apartments are encouraging all buyers to grab a piece of the Sunshine Coast. Located in the new heart of the Sunshine Coast, Saltwater on the Peninsula at Lake Kawana features 78 one- and two-bedroom waterfront apartments and two three-bedroom villas. The homes are some of the first for Birtinya, a suburb that is right among the action of the Coast’s newest growth area. Located on a north- and east-facing waterfront site on Birtinya Boulevard, the developers of Saltwater are offering buyers the chance to secure a home off the plan in a covetable location just a few hundred metres from the new Kawana health hub. With the Ramsay Health Private Hospital under construction and completion due late 2013, Saltwater is perfectly positioned and timed to take advantage of the demand for rental property in the immediate vicinity of the hospital. Gail Hunter, sales and marketing manager for RGD Property Group, says, “Saltwater’s entry level pricing of $340,000 for a waterfront apartment has met with keen interest from investors who can see the potential to get in early,

10 Oak Court, Minyama Waters

OWNERS GOING CRUISING Absolutely sensa onal is a word that comes to mind when I inspected this impressive waterfront property. The real winning edge is not just the architecture but the way the floor plan has been designed. The outdoors is an integral part of the property and has been designed where the indoor and outdoor flow together making entertaining so much more enjoyable. The home is on two levels and will easily accommodate any lifestyle connoisseur. The kitchen is the vocal point of the property and has views overlooking all living areas and inground pool. The home boasts bedrooms that are beau fully appointed with mul ple bathrooms, large home oďŹ&#x192;ce and a full on cinema room. Outdoors the property has been stunningly landscaped with water features, a good size inground pool, large boardwalk ideal for entertaining over the water and a large pontoon. The owners have very much enjoyed their property and it has been a hard decision to make and move on. But their reason to sell is a very realis c one, for the property is simply too big for them and they now also have their boat and are keen to pack up and go cruising, providing a very genuine opportunity for you as the buyer.

This historic role as a prosperous commercial centre ensured it was always well provided for with infrastructure and services

OLD HEART Thanks to the former PM and the current treasurer, all of Australia knows Nambour. But how much do locals know? Dorothy Drane takes a drive around the hinterland capital.

T

here was a time when Nambour was unquestionably the ‘big smoke’ of the Sunshine Coast, a major commercial centre sitting bang in the geographic centre of the region. Like Rome, all roads once led to Nambour – and still do, for that matter. It is also on the main northern rail line out of Brisbane.

First settled in the late 1860s and officially named Nambour in 1891, it is one of the oldest townships on the Sunshine Coast where, for more than a century, farmers would arrive from far and wide to do their business. This historic role as a prosperous commercial centre ensured that it was always well provided for with infrastructure and services and it remains the headquarters for

plenty of government, professional, community and emergency services. Among them are the region’s major public hospital, TAFE college, the headquarters of Sunshine Coast Council, Sunshine Coast Mail Centre, the DPI research station and a large collection of schools (one of which has produced an Australian prime minister and treasurer as

well as national stars of stage, screen and sport). Nambour’s appeal now, as it always has been, is that it is a country township where housing radiates from its main street and shopping precinct, and where residents can bank, shop and access a wide range of government services from one parking spot. This means it is also a good place to find a job. Residential development was always consistent but took off in the 1970s and has continued

steadily since, with the opening of new estates and the expansion of the town’s borders. It now officially includes the area south to Woombye including Coes Creek, Perwillowen, Burnside and Towen Mountain and north to Wappa Falls Road near Yandina, including Parklands, Kulangoor and Kiamba. To the west, collections of houses have taken a life of their own and become officially recognised as Nambour Heights, Highworth and Image Flat. Higher up the Blackall Range foothills, Kureelpa and Dulong offer fabulous views down the Maroochy River Valley, and Panorama Drive in the east is also a high point with range or coast views. This expansion of boundaries and the rise of neighbourhood convenience stores have extended Nambour’s lifestyle options way beyond the original town’s urban heart to include a wide choice of allotment locations and sizes in rural acreage and smart new residential estates. The population now stands at around 15,000, but density for the whole 5804 hectares that make up Nambour and Burnside district remains an easy 2.59 people per hectare. While retaining a distinctive hinterland town amenity, Nambour is in fact only a 20-minute drive from Maroochydore. This is reflected in

LEVEL: HARD

CAPRICORN The full moon beams light up your career zone. If professional problems pop up this weekend then a cool, calm and collected Capricorn approach will smooth out any glitches.

AQUARIUS Full moon energy can result in many folk behaving in wildly unpredictable ways – which is just normal behaviour for avant-garde Aquarians. Travel and adventure are highlighted.

PISCES The spotlight is on lust and loot as the full moon brings up unresolved issues. An intimate relationship could soar – or crash and burn. If you are careless with cash, you’ll pay the price later.

ARIES With the full moon falling in your relationship zone, it’s time to think less about yourself, and more about others. Single rams, keep searching for a lover who is mature and responsible.

TAURUS Have you got any bad habits? The full moon energises your wellbeing zone, so shine the spotlight on dietary or lifestyle choices that may be compromising your health and vitality.

GEMINI The full moon activates your “kids zone” so expect a long and tiring weekend as the children swing into hyperactive mode. Child-free? It’s time to connect with your creative inner child.

CANCER It’s not the time to bring up sensitive issues. The full moon falls in your home zone, so be on domestic drama alert and realise that emotions will be running high.

LEO Lively lions love full moon energy because it signals drama, excitement and volatility. You’re feeling super creative but beware of being bossy – especially with a stressed-out sibling.

VIRGO Serious Saturn and the full moon shine a glaring spotlight on money matters. It’s time to concentrate on budgeting rather than borrowing, and saving rather than spending.

LIBRA The full moon activates your sign, and your perfectionist streak. Attached Librans, resist the urge to be super-critical of your partner. Singles, realise that love and travel are linked.

SCORPIO The full moon usually stimulates your temperamental Scorpio side but not this month. The moonbeams fall in laidback Libra, which sees you at your calm and controlled best.

SAGITTARIUS It’s time to be a sociable Sagittarian, as the full moon stirs up your networking zone. You’re full of beans and ready to see a movie, go to a concert, hit the clubs or party with friends.
