y partner’s sister is training for Tough Mudder. She’s a keen runner and has had her husband install some obstacles in the backyard to aid her training. She’s put a team together and my name is on her list. Initially I thought it wouldn’t be a bad idea. Get out with the bloke and some members of his family, engage in some healthy physical activity, have a laugh and get a little dirty – sounds peachy. But after researching this week’s cover story, I have had a rethink – I hate to disappoint the team, but, oh I have just remembered, I can’t compete because I’ll be, umm, washing my hair that day. If you’re not sure what this whole Tough Mudder thing is, turn the page. If you plan to take part and are keen to f nd out why the organisers chose Caloundra to host one of the

] events, turn the page. If you are signed up for a team but don’t know what you are in for and aren’t as f t as you could be, well, maybe skip the story and head straight for socials. I don’t want to scare you off. Jokes aside, Tough Mudder is big business and it is a huge pat on the back that the organisers have chosen us to host the Queensland event. And while I might not take part, I will be at the f nish line, with very shiny locks, cheering on my team. Still, after reading our agenda item this week, you might be tempted to run around outside. Digital distraction is a huge problem in our social media age. Step away from Facebook and read more on page 20. This week our special feature is dedicated to retirement living.

WHAT MADE CALOUNDRA THE IDEAL LOCATION FOR TOUGH MUDDER’S BIGGEST EVENT? JEMMA PEARSON FINDS OUT.

ake an early morning walk past many a Coast beach, park or playground and you’ll see athletic-looking people yelling at, cajoling and encouraging Sunshine Coasters of all shapes and sizes to put more grunt behind their jumping jacks and lunges, skips and squats. The ’80s had aerobics, the ’90s home gym fads. But boot camp is the f tness regime du jour as we head into the 20-teens for stressed-out executives and tired mums, for self-aware teens and tradies. Perhaps not surprising then, that someone came up with Tough Mudder. What is surprising to many, though, is that the event has spread like wildf re, making its way here, to the Sunshine Coast. Co-founded by a pair of Brits, Will Dean and Guy Livingstone, Tough Mudder events are 16- to 19-kilometre obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces. The f rst event was run just three years ago, in May 2010, as an antidote to triathlons, marathons and other endurance events that the organisers felt were far too tedious to be enjoyable. Tough Mudder isn’t easy (obstacles have imaginative names such as Arctic Enema, Funky Monkey and Electroshock Therapy, and the well-staffed Tough Mudder innovation department has the job of developing new ones all the time). They undoubtedly test a participant’s mental and physical endurance, but the idea is to have fun, take part with friends (the course is designed to be tackled as part of a team), make new friends and enjoy a beer afterwards.

George Spring is the general manager of operations and just one of the more than 100 people now employed by Tough Mudder throughout the world. Not bad for an organisation that wasn’t even around a few years ago. At the f rst event, says Spring, there were only a few thousand participants. Last year the Tough Mudder events attracted close to half a million participants. The more ref ned among us, whose idea of a good time does not involve throwing themselves in a quagmire at the risk of ligament damage, are left scratching their heads and wondering what all the fuss is about. Spring’s explanation is straightforward. “So many people these days live lives in an off ce environment,” he says. No wonder then that the lure of a good physical workout is hard to resist. “But running a marathon is quite boring.” Tough Mudder, Spring adds, is “not a race, it is a challenge”. The obstacles are almost impossible to overcome by solo effort – Tough Mudder encourages teamwork – and there is no small sense of accomplishment to be had crossing the f nish line with your mates, work colleagues or f tness group friends. Spring adds, “If you go back a generation, most fathers were blue collar workers. [Tough Mudder] gets people out in nature.” There are of course the competitive types who can’t help themselves, people Spring describes as “ultra-f t” athletes who follow the event around the world, but the organisers don’t track f nishing times, though participants themselves usually do.

This year competitors have many locations to choose from. “In Australia we are planning to have six events this year. There are also many in Europe and the US,” says Spring. Dozens of events will be held in places as diverse as Las Vegas, Germany, Scotland and Caloundra. You read right: Tough Mudder is coming to the Sunshine Coast. So what was it about our humble region that so appealed to the Tough Mudder organisers? “You were chosen for a number of reasons,” says Spring. “We were looking [to hold an event] up in Queensland. The Sunshine Coast Council was very proactive. Stockland has been incredibly community-minded – they have offered us a wonderful site. We have never had so much co-operation, goodwill and enthusiasm from any region that we have dealt with. The business community has also been incredibly supportive.” Not only have the locals made it easy, but our temperature, accommodation options, infrastructure and the site itself meant we were an obvious choice. Bill Darby from the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce explains the process. “Council’s economic development people approached Tough Mudder down in Sydney a year ago about considering the Sunshine Coast as a Queensland venue. An international scout came up looking at potential Tough Mudder sites. The scout fell in love with Caloundra. “They looked at other sites around the Coast,” adds Darby, “but Caloundra was an easy choice, with Stockland as land owner making it easy and the access to Brisbane a big plus.” But it’s not just the land owners and organisers that are set to win from the event. The entire region will benef t economically from the inf ux of participants. “There will be a good take-up from locals but the signif cant majority of people [taking part in the event are from] out of the area, with a high percentage of international travellers,” says Darby. “The particular event will be the largest Tough Mudder yet, with 40,000 competitors and the overwhelming majority will be visitors and f rst-time visitors.” What that means for the Coast is that for one weekend in August we will have a global audience watching us. Not only that, says Darby, if we do well staging the event there is a f ve-year contract with the organisers up for grabs. “The long-term benef ts are signif cant,” says Darby, adding that the tourism wellness and f tness industry is

huge and very competitive. Tough Mudder is an opportunity to sell our brand to a global audience. He points out that all too often we are confused with the Gold Coast, particularly in Asian markets, which is the strongest growth industry. We need to “get that message out into the international tourist landscape”. He adds, “We very much need to put out a call to action to say this is an opportunity to put our best foot forward.” So it’s not just participants who’ll need to be f ghting f t for August, but for locals planning to compete, Spring has this advice: “Try and grab a few mates to do it with [but for those competing alone] you will make friends. The thing I really notice at the end are all the smiling faces.” Tough Mudder Sunshine Coast will be held on August 17 and 18. Head to toughmudder.com.au.

The council played an important role in securing the event for our region. Here is what mayor Mark Jamieson has to say. Are you planning to take part in Tough Mudder? “I note the average participant’s age is 29, and I’m initially reluctant to imbalance that average, but I’ll give it some thought!” How important is this event for the region? “We have targeted tourism and major events as part of our economic development strategy for the region – this is a perfect example of that targeting.” Any words of encouragement for participants? “As I understand it the average completion rate is about 78 per cent, so my special encouragement goes to the other 22 per cent to keep the Sunshine Coast above-average.”

SUPERANNUATION: The Great Debate Listen to Experts discuss all things SUPER.

Hear a Self Managed Super Fund specialist & Financial Adviser DEBATE! Learn how tax impacts on your super after your death from an Estate Planning Lawyer. Retired with investments not in super? Learn how it can be done in a tax effective manner.

The Great Super Debate Self Managed Super Funds^ (SMSF) now account for the biggest slice of the super pie in Australia – ahead of popular industry super funds. People are demanding greater flexibility over their own super. Listen to two industry experts debate the pros (there are several!) & cons (rarely discussed but there are some) on starting & operating your own super fund. Would you like to borrow to build an investment property or commercial building using your existing super funds as a deposit? Or perhaps you would prefer to operate your own share portfolio using your existing super funds. The list of options available in super and people pushing them is now endless – let’s look at the pros and cons on all of these possibilities.

Death & Taxes Do you know what TAX is payable by your estate after your death? Tax and death are both unavoidable – but when you add

‘superannuation’ to the mix, it can get unnecessarily complicated. For example, who controls your super on your death? We have invited a Senior Lawyer who specialises in Estate Planning to talk about making your super work in conjunction with your estate planning.

‘Super’ Tax Havens One of the most attractive features of having a SMSF is it allows you to take full advantage of the tax benefits exclusive to super. Super and tax have had a lot of bad press lately but with good planning you could be paying NO tax in retirement and still be receiving a substantial tax refund! And what about Retiring outside of super? We will also talk about how Retirees can still continue to pay no tax, and enjoy tax refunds outside of super, in retirement. This is a great opportunity for you to hear three experts express their opinions and those attending will be given ample opportunity to ask questions of all the speakers.

Lacking Motivation? No Excitement for life? Can’t get into exercise, overweight, low libido and poor energy? Dopamine is a brain neurotransmitter that controls motivation, happiness, drive, libido and energy. Eating well and exercising is crucial to be healthy, but the body is reliant on a few other things to be able to be happy, motivated, build muscle, lose fat, and produce energy. Three of those things are the right balance of food groups in your diet, protein absorption, and good nutrients.

send a message to your body to either gain or lose weight. You need to make sure your percentages of each food group is correct, while keeping your portion sizes adequate, but not more than you require. Your body will tell you when you are not eating enough, but will not often tell you when you are eating too much.

Good nutrients, along with proteins, produce dopamine levels in the brain, further making adrenaline, so you have the energy you require to do the exercise you need to achieve the changes in your body you desire. Dopamine is made from tyrosine - an amino acid, B6, folate, zinc, magnesium, B complex, vitamin C and iron. Depression is very common in today’s society, making it hard to get out there and exercise. Both dopamine and serotonin def ciencies are the main causes of depression. Serotonin is also increased in production when you improve your protein absorption and nutrient intake. If depression has been a concern for you, it may be another sign that you have poor protein and nutrient absorption.

With low dietary protein or poor absorption, your muscles cannot grow or repair. Your muscles are the engine of your body that burn calories, the more muscle you have, the more fat you will burn and the faster your metabolism will become. For anyone who is training, you require at least 3-6 protein meals daily, you also need to be absorbing it through the gut. Absorption of protein is often taken for granted. If you’ve been ill, or are a little older, there may be a lack of bacteria in the gut necessary to form a complete amino acid chain, which is where a lot of your proteins are manufactured. You should check this if you are weight training and notice no change in the muscle, or cannot lose weight. You may also notice f at moods as protein is required to make your brain neurotransmitters, hormones, motivation and energy.

Balancing fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the diet makes a huge difference when it comes to getting results with exercise, once you have the energy to do it. Muscle growth, and weight loss occur easily when you balance your food groups properly, as too much of one, compared to another can inf uence your production of insulin. Insulin will

By addressing each of the above factors, you will have much greater results with the same effort, while improving your mood in the process.

eloved husband of 53 years, father of three children and grandfather to six, retired Air Commodore Peter Coy, is certainly one of Australia’s true patriots. Before his retirement to the Sunshine Coast, Coy dedicated 31 years of service to the Royal Australian Air Force and was awarded a Distinguished Service Order for his time serving in the Vietnam War. Coy joined the Royal Australian Air Force in 1951 as a young man with a passion for f ying and with the advent of the Korean War, he undertook pilot training and graduated as a sergeant in 1952. “I was always interested in the Air Force, aeroplanes and f ying as a boy, so I decided to apply and was accepted,” Coy says. In 1954 he was commissioned and became a qualif ed f ying and f ghter combat instructor and served in squadrons in Australia, Malaya and Thailand. He later served in the Vietnam War as a Commanding Off cer, f ying helicopters. Coy looks back fondly on his years at war, despite the terrible toll of the conf icts, because of the comradeship he witnessed. “I feel great pride in the efforts of our country and the teamwork of so many Australians who simply did what we had to, for many years overseas and under pressure,” he says. In 1973 he relocated from Australia to the United States and broadened his skills training

on F111 aircraft. He was appointed operations off cer for the Number 82 Wing and was involved in introducing F111 planes to the Royal Australian Air Force Service. “Each Anzac Day I proudly attend the service by Maroochy RSL and ref ect on what it means; it is wonderful to see so many young people appreciate this date and share in the sense of mateship that underpins it,” he says. This year marks the 98th anniversary of Anzac Day. Services will take place across the Coast on April 25. Check times and locations with your local RSL.

BERTRAND TO ADDRESS EXPO He is best known for skippering the Australia II to victory in the 1983 America’s Cup, but next month John Bertrand will take centre stage at one of the Coast’s biggest business events. Bertrand, who broke America’s 132-year winning streak in the America’s Cup, will be a keynote speaker at the Sunshine Coast Business and Workstyle Expo, to be held at the Big Pineapple on May 10 and 11. Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce president Ross Hepworth says while Bertrand’s business expertise is not as widely publicised as his sporting achievements, it has proved just as remarkable. “Most people don’t realise John Bertrand is a successful businessman in his own right, having established a number of businesses across a broad range of industries including the marine, property and media industries,” Hepworth says. “Mr Bertrand also embodies

a number of qualities that serve him well in both the sporting and business arena, with leadership and the ability to act as a team player just two of the many areas he excels in.” Bertrand will soon launch a high-level Leadership Series for Monash University in Melbourne, benchmarking Australia’s most successful leaders from commerce, technology, military and sport. Bertrand will join f nance guru Ross Greenwood as a keynote speaker at the Expo. Hepworth says the 2013 Expo will include a comprehensive program of keynote presentations, workshops, seminars and networking opportunities, while exploring the concept of workstyle – the way in which business professionals operate within the modern work landscape.

Service with a smile When it comes to customer service it is no secret the Coast, like much of Australia, can do with a bit of help. Martin Grunstein, a professional speaker on customer service, says it’s a “huge” issue for Australia and there is plenty of room for improvement. “It’s diabolical and we are disgraceful,” Grunstein says of our customer service. “It’s a little better in the country than it is in the city but it is still very poor.” But he says the upside is, if you get it right there are dollars to be made. And Grunstein is aiming to help local businesses get it right when he speaks at the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce Better Business Breakfast on May 3, on the theme ‘Making a Prof t in Changing Times’. He will be talking to local businesses about low-cost and no-cost strategies they can implement to add value through their customers and give reasons for people to shop with them.

Peter Franks will guide Noosa de-amalgamation Local Government minister David Crisafulli last week released rules to guide the council de-amalgamation process. He also announced Peter Franks as the local government f gure to guide the transition that will transform Noosa to an independent council. Franks has extensive experience developing f nancial models and as a CEO for councils in Victoria and Queensland. Crisafulli says regulations to guide the process will ensure negotiation of assets and liabilities to transfer to the new councils and the employee numbers. There is also a provision outlining that the transfer manager meets at least monthly with a local advisory committee, which will be made up of local people along with MP Glen Elmes and a representative from Noosa and Cooroy Chambers of Commerce and Tourism Noosa.

AUSTRALIANS FRET MORE BUT DRINK, SMOKE LESS

A

ustralians have cut down on smoking and drinking, but they have gained weight and become more anxious, a major research project shows. A survey of 50,000 Australians has found 1.1 million fewer glasses of alcoholic beverages are being consumed a week and 134,000 fewer people smoke compared with 2007. The bad news is 736,000 more adults are obese and the number of people with anxiety has increased by 1.3 million, says Michele Levine, CEO of Roy Morgan Research, which collaborated with Alere healthcare company to establish the Alere Wellness Index. Although tempting, it is not possible to link reduced smoking and drinking to increased anxiety and obesity. “It’s more likely that local and global economic issues are to blame for the psycho-emotional trend, and fast-food consumption could account for the increase in obesity,” says John Lang of Alere. The results are based on 1800 questions put to 50,000 people

a year for the past f ve years. According to the research, western Brisbane is the most healthy of the 57 areas surveyed. Least healthy is the Murray and Murrumbidgee area in NSW. The questions cover medical conditions, food purchasing and consumption, psychological wellbeing, alcohol, smoking, body weight and activity levels. Alere managing director Mark Volling says the research allows wellinformed monitoring of chronic disease risk factors. “The index allows us to determine where action is needed,” he says. “It will provide an excellent public health resource to assist state and federal governments in their allocation of health services and funding.” AAP

Twitter may help prevent heart disease, according to a new Australian study. The fast and far-reaching way that information spreads through the social network has the potential to save lives by providing education about the illness, which the Heart Foundation says kills one Australian every 12 minutes. Researchers from the University of Sydney reached the conclusion after studying 15 health-focused Twitter accounts with more than one million followers, nine professional organisations and six medical journals.

STEP AWAY FROM THAT GADGET

I

f, like most people, you take your smartphone with you everywhere (even to the corner shop) and respond immediately to every ‘pling’ and ‘beep’, then digital distraction has become part of your life. It wasn’t so long ago that we were learning how to switch our phones on (remember your f rst mobile?). Now, it seems, we have forgotten where the off button is. Without our phones for even a short while, many of us start to feel anxious. But with our phones next to us all the time, we allow near-constant interruptions. While digital devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops have given us the ability to connect any time, anywhere, to anyone, being constantly connected has left many of us feeling overwhelmed, drained and stressed. Our health and productivity have started to suffer. Trying to f nish something in one go – a conversation, a task, or a piece of work – suddenly seems impossible. We just can’t seem to concentrate. Every time we try to get something done, we get distracted by an email, text or status update and then have to make up for lost time. We go on the internet to do ‘just one thing’ and only look up an hour later. Our relationships have been damaged, too, and we’re not seeing the things we used to. We miss what’s going by outside the window or don’t hear what our partner is saying (“Hmm, yes, I’m listening, what was that?”) as we stare down and scroll. What’s the solution, then? Switch off your phone and never check email again? While this may be tempting, for most people it just isn’t practical. We want – or need – to keep in touch. The trick is to make conscious choices about how you use email, social media and the internet, so you are in control, rather than technology or other people dictating the shape of your day. This helps you feel less stressed, happier and human again.

The bad news is there is no quick f x. It takes time to establish new brain pathways that mean you stop logging in to email f rst thing in the morning without even realising you’ve done it. However, once you start feeling focused and realising how much time and attention digital distraction has been wasting, you’ll quickly start to make changes. The f rst step is to assess your level of digital

distraction (most people are more distracted than they think). While for most of us digital distraction is a time sap that sometimes overwhelms us, but it is also on a spectrum that includes serious addiction. This year, for the f rst time, internet addiction will be included in the manual used worldwide to classify mental disorders – the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) – marked for further study. For most of us facing normal levels of digital distraction, other steps to take include identifying exactly what and who is distracting you. Think about the relationships you have in the room, the digital relationships you have (for example Facebook friends), and the relationship you have with your technology. Often, the solution we decide on is to lengthen our working day. We can carry our off ces around with us on our digital devices after all. So we read emails just before we go to sleep and our phones wake us up in the morning. Expectation is a huge problem we need to tackle. We expect others to reply to us immediately. And even heavier is the expectation we place on ourselves. We try to keep up with things on Facebook, Twitter and email. We feel we should be able to read, post and respond everywhere. We don’t give ourselves a break despite the fact we are exhausted. Little time is left for catching up in person, or on the phone, and the evidence shows that we’re talking less. Texting is now more popular than talking. Something has gone wrong – we’re spreading our attention thinly, and we’re losing the ability to pay meaningful attention to anyone or anything. It’s time to win back some attention to give to each other and the projects that mean the most to us. AAP

better news from offshore, indicates it is comfortable that the muchanticipated transition from mining investment as the principal driver of growth, to non-mining activity, is playing out broadly as expected. A round of rate cuts that started in late 2011 is f nally gaining traction. The economy, therefore, needs no further policy support right now. What has us predicting one more cut is the possibility of a small gap in growth after mining investment peaks, which will trigger a slight uptick in the unemployment rate, as well as ongoing buoyancy in the Australian dollar in trade-weighted terms. One of the clearer themes in Australian economic data of late has been better news on housing. Auction clearance rates, house prices, building approvals and construction employment are all showing some positive momentum. This is important, because residential investment is expected to play a role in Australia’s transition away from mining-led growth. We make two points around movements in house prices. Firstly, the rate of increase is so far quite modest when compared with other episodes of stronger house prices. Secondly, the rate of increase is comparable across different capital cities (an unusual outcome in itself). Given subdued credit growth and a low proportion of f rst-home buyers, there are few signs that rising house prices are being accompanied by a concerning increase in system-wide leverage. Evidence of better growth momentum in housing reinforces recent Reserve Bank assertions that rate cuts are working and underscores our belief that the Reserve Bank is in the midst of an extended pause.

f there’s anything I’ve learnt from my life so far it’s that God is good, beer is great and people are crazy. If you’re not sure who the crazies are, they’re the ones wearing socks with their Crocs. Now you know I’ve said it before, beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. But sadly, this week’s brew is not a religious experience, friends. Please don’t think I’m sinking the boot into Japan’s favourite lager for political reasons, either. Save the whales, collect thee whole set. Don’t get me wrong, ng, I’m a fan of plenty of Japanesee gear – the Toyota Hilux, teppanyaki and Kung Fu Panda, to name a few. The main reason I don’t rate Asahi Super Dry is because it’s just not a great beer. I know plenty of blokes who love this little drop and say it’s a beer for every season, but just like Julia’s

carbon tax, I’m not buying it. Sure, it’s a very easy to drink, full-strength brew that’s light on the palate, but it’s also light on taste. It’s a bit like Seal on the show The Voice – it tries to be super-hip but lacks a certain smoothness and ends up leaving you feeling slightly violated and a little bit ick! I do know that the Asahi we buy here in Australia isn’t a product of Japan and is brewed in Thailand, so maybe that’s got a bit to do with it. For me the price doesn’t quite matc match c the quality either. When you’r you’re r dishing out your hard-earned, you w want solid bang for ya buck. Just ask L Labor MP Craig Thompson. T The old Asahi is like a brokendow down w Aussie Post motorbike – it fai fails il to deliver. I give Asahi Super Dry two out ou u of f ve thumbs up.

IS VILLAGE LIFE FOR YOU? PREVIEW Richard Andrews has this advice for retirees thinking about making the move to a retirement village. Richard Andrews is the author of Don’t buy your retirement home without ME!, the essential guide to buying a home in a retirement village in Australia. Published by John Wiley & Sons Australia and available in all good bookshops or online at retirementvillageadvice.com.au.

1. Make the move early. Don’t wait for the move to be ‘forced’ on you by family or circumstances and make sure you are still active enough to enjoy the facilities and community life. 2. Make sure a retirement village is the right move for you. Community living isn’t for everyone. For many people it may be a better option to stay where you are or to move into a smaller residential property. 3. Understand your purchase contract and the fees and charges that apply. Your purchase contract will establish your relationship with the village operator and the only time you can negotiate this is when you

[ 28 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 19, 2013

purchase. Buying into a retirement village is completely different to buying a normal residential home, so don’t assume that just because you have bought and sold a few houses in your time, that you will understand a retirement village purchase contract. 4. Do your research. Don’t sign up to the f rst village you see – check out as many as you can before deciding on the best community for you. Compare prices and fees, as well as the responsibility for maintaining the f xtures and f ttings of your unit. 5. Plan to stay for the long term. Leaving a retirement village triggers most of the fees and charges that are applied during your stay. You need time for the growth in the value of your unit to reduce the impact of such charges. 6. Understand this is a lifestyle decision. Buying into a retirement village is not an investment. You probably won’t receive any capital gains when you sell and in most cases will not even have the freehold title to your unit. This is a lifestyle decision and your lifestyle costs money.

7. Negotiate everything! Most buyers don’t realise that many parts of the retirement village purchase contract can be negotiated, particularly in locations where retirement villages are struggling to make sales. 8. Get good advice. You will no doubt be spending several hundreds of thousands of dollars on your retirement village unit. Paying an expert for their advice can not only save you money, but can give you the peace of mind that the contracts are in order and that you have received the best deal possible. 9. Get it in writing. Don’t take what the sales agent says for granted – if something is important to you, make sure it is clearly outlined in your contract. 10. Above all, never rush your decision. Take your time and make sure you will feel comfortable in your new residence. Many retirement villages now offer prospective residents the opportunity to stay over in a display unit for a few nights. This is a great way to f nd out if community living is for you.

CELEBRATE WITH TWIN WATERS RESIDENTS AT 10TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW DAY When Bobbie Scovell and her late husband Bill cut the ribbon to signify the opening of Living Choice Twin Waters in April 2003, they set in moƟon the creaƟon of a community that would take its place as one of the foremost reƟrement villages in the country. Ten years later, Bobbie will once again be taking centre-stage at the village’s 10th Anniversary Show Day to be held this Saturday 20 April, planƟng a tree and a Ɵme capsule with Fiona Simpson MP and Living Choice directors Graham Hobbs and Ian Tregoning. Bobbie and Bill were heavily involved in shaping the wonderful camaraderie that the village is known for. Bill, who sadly passed away in 2008, turned his early career experience as a broadcasƟng engineer into a full-Ɵme hobby and started a radio staƟon at the village. Bobbie formed the craŌ group and remains its co-ordinator to this day. Over the years, members of the craŌ group have raised thousands of dollars for charity, selling craŌ at their

annual winter and Christmas fairs. They will have a wide variety of craŌ for sale again this Saturday. Residents have been hard at work preparing for the Show Day which will also include an art and poƩery sale, woodwork display, bowls, line dancing and kayaking. Morning and aŌernoon tea will be available between 10am and 2pm and there’ll be a complimentary sausage sizzle from 12 noon to 1pm. Four homes will also be open for viewing, including two villas and two apartments. The highlight will be a performance by the Sunshine Coast Pipe Band at 11am, followed by the tree-planƟng and cake-cuƫng ceremonies. Everyone is most welcome to aƩend.

AGED CARE FACILITY SET TO BOOST RETIREMENT VILLAGE DEMAND The announcement of plans to build an 85-bed Aged Care Facility on the north-east corner of the Living Choice Twin Waters ReƟrement Village site is set to increase demand for the last villas to be built in the final stage of the village. The Aged Care Facility will be built and operated by Padman Health Care, an award-winning Australian company that has delivered aged care services in Australia for the past 28 years. It currently operates 14 ResidenƟal Aged Care FaciliƟes, including Claremont in Nambour. It has won three NaƟonal Aged Care Industry Building Awards for excellence in building and at the recent Leading Aged Service Australia Congress held in Perth, the company received the NaƟonal Employer of MY W EEKLYPREVIE W.

Choice Award. Living Choice director Graham Hobbs said Padman Twin Waters would be a 5-star facility housing approximately 85 high and low care beds, subject to council approval. Access to the facility would be from Ocean Drive and not through the village. “This means that Living Choice Twin Waters will now have 150 independent living units instead of the previously planned 173. There are already 195 residents at the village and with aged care services soon available on-site, we expect the remaining limited number of villas and apartments to be in high demand,” he said.

Residents from our

Kawana Island village will also have priority access.” Padman Health Care will have an informaƟon desk at the 10th Anniversary Show Day to be held at the village this Saturday 20 April from 10am to 2pm. M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW \ A PRIL 1 9 , 2 0 1 3 [ 29 ]

THE RIGHT MOVE AT THE RIGHT TIME PREVIEW Where you will live during your retirement years is an important choice. For Ian Lawson, 65, and his wife Maree, moving into Living Choice’s Twin Waters retirement village was an unexpected but welcome decision.

Q. How long ago did you retire? A. We retired about f ve and a half years ago. I had

been in the marine charter industry and was based in the Whitsundays, which is a lovely spot. Q. What brought you to the Sunshine Coast? A. Just after we retired, after being in business for some time, we took a break and travelled and lived in our van for a couple of years. We headed south looking for somewhere to buy or build a home, and we got a bit south of the border and it got a bit cold, so we turned around and headed north again. We were looking for a property to buy and we came

across some land, so we built a house at Pomona on acreage and lived there for a number of years. Q. What prompted your decision to move into a retirement village? A. We didn’t think we’d be moving into a retirement village until our late 70s, so we looked at some apartments and so on, but we thought it was something we would do in later life. Then I got very sick, and was told I only had 24 hours to live if I didn’t have an emergency operation. I had several operations and was in hospital for quite some time, and I realised during that time that there was no way my wife could look after our property without me, and I couldn’t look after our property when I got home – not without paying people to come in and do certain things. So we said, let’s look into a retirement village. We looked at a number of villages, and found the living here is of a very high standard – the villas are magnif cent, with lots of airy high ceilings and so on. There are also good facilities: we have hot and cold pools, and a gym. We were pretty attracted to it, so we put our house on the market, then put a deposit down and moved in last July.

Q. What are the benef ts of living in a retirement village?

A. For us now, [the fact that] the place is looked

after fully for us. We just recently went away for three weeks, down to Canberra, and we know there are people around, the gardens are maintained, and I don’t have to worry if the pool is going to f ood. We love being here. We’ve made a great group of friends, and if it’s unhealthy, it’s probably only bad for our livers; we’re constantly being invited places. Q. What is your advice for other retirees? Is there anything you would do differently? A. People who come to visit us say, you’ve done it at the right time. People who leave it until their late 70s are sometimes getting a bit old to enjoy it – you may be getting a little too old to be going swimming, or to the gym. I think it’s something people should be made aware of perhaps a little earlier in life. You can do as little or as much as you want. While you may pay a bit extra to come into it, you’re really paying for your lifestyle. There are plenty of villages out there, so select the one in the range of your retirement income, and it lets you ease the burden of worrying about money and enjoy life.

ALL EYES ON BLI BLI

Julie Schafer from ES&A Financial Services offers her top f ve pre-retirement tips:

O

ver 50s lifestyle community developer Halcyon has chalked up record sales of more than $38 million at its latest community at Bli Bli. In just a little over 12 months, Halcyon Landing’s f rst stage has almost completely sold out, prompting the early release of the second stage of the 170-home master-planned development. So why are buyers so keen on Bli Bli? Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann says the transparent f nancial model and incredible eight-star home energy ratings help. “The f nancial side of the retirement living equation is crucial, especially in the post GFC economy in which people on a f xed income need absolute certainty about their outgoings,” Geissmann says. “Our model wraps body corporate charges up with council and water rates into one f xed cost so residents know exactly what they are up for. This is proving a big hit in an environment where utility costs are on the rise and there is a lot of uncertainty out there.” Geissmann says buyers are also responding well to Halcyon’s lifestyle offerings. “Lifestyle is so important for baby boomers, so we’ve ramped up our efforts at Halcyon Landing with our biggest

Bli Bli offers an excellent lifestyle for retirees recreation club yet and this hasn’t gone unnoticed in the local marketplace,” he says. The 1500-square metre recreation club is complemented by a pool and spa, bowling green, walking trail and natural parklands. The relocation of Horton Park Golf Club, which will soon be just down the road from Halcyon Landing, is also a drawcard. Geissmann says the $550 million in planned infrastructure improvements and future development for Bli Bli, along with Halcyon Landing’s proximity to existing facilities such as the Maroochydore town centre, means residents are taking notice of the once quiet town.

1. YOUR BIGGEST ASSET IS YOUR INCOME. Think twice before you walk away from paid employment. We meet people who have sold great businesses or walked away from a fabulous career because they are tired. Slow down f rst and then reassess whether now is the time to fully retire. 2. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? Work out a realistic budget to ensure you know your funds will last as long as you do. 3. WELCOME TO THE NEXT GENERATION. Retiring to the rocking chair is so last century. Baby boomers are generally in great shape physically and mentally and have much more energy for life and all the opportunities retirement provides. Don’t assume you’ll be slowing down in your 70s – another reason to make sure you have enough money to see you through. 4. INGREDIENTS FOR LIFE. Having something to do today and something to look forward to tomorrow are the keys to happiness in retirement. Having purpose in life is so important – no matter if you are 18 or 80. 5. CASH IS KING. Never underestimate the value of good cash reserves in retirement. Real liquidity means cash in your pocket or bank account.

all it a 2020 vision. German giant Audi has a goal for the remainder of this decade and it couldn’t be more clear – to be the world’s leading premium car maker by 2020. If you think that’s an ambitious target for the next seven years, look what they’ve done over the past seven. In 2006 Audi sold less than 6000 cars in Australia, last year they sold almost 15,000. Audi says its so-called Strategy 2020 is not simply about selling the most cars, although it no doubt aims to overtake its arch-rivals like Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

But it also wants to achieve a series of corporate goals including the training and expertise of its staff, the f nancial health of its dealer network and, perhaps most importantly, record levels of “customer delight”. We got an insight into that vision last week when Audi rolled out a handful of its latest models for a media drive day in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney. It was no ordinary collection of cars. Topping the bill was Audi’s f agship supercar the R8, backed up by the hottest-yet version of its TT sports coupe, known as the RS-Plus. But the unexpected delights came

from the other cars on the drive f eet – one a limo, one a wagon and the third, amazingly, a diesel. Central to all this is a range of new engines, which will underpin the development of Audi’s models over the next couple of years. First, a twin-turbocharged V8 which delivers stunning performance in Audi’s S7 Sportback – a slinky limo-style hatchback that def es all kinds of expectations. The four-litre, twin-turbo V8 punches out an imposing 309 kilowatts – allowing this big, plush four-seat limo to thunder to the speed continued over>

AUDI TT RS-PLUS: 2.5-litre, turbocharged f ve cylinder (265kW, 465Nm); seven-speed dual-clutch transmission; 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds; thirst 8.5L/100km. Cost: $139,900. AUDI A6 3.0 TDI BITURBO: 3-litre, biturbo-diesel V6 (230kW, 650Nm); eightspeed tiptronic automatic transmission; 0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds; thirst 6.4L/100km. Cost: $118,800. AUDI RS4 AVANT: 4.2 litre V8 (331Nm, 430Nm); 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds, thirst 10.7L/100km. Cost: $149,400.

A Daimler Brand

<from previous page limit in just 4.7 seconds – yet at the same time achieve an average combined fuel consumption of just 9.6 litres per 100 kilometres. That’s aided by a new cylinder on demand function that shuts down cylinders when the engine is using less than full power. The result is an admirable combination of performance and frugality – delivered, as it is, in the most ref ned, velvety fashion imaginable. At a cost of $179,900, the S7 (based on the A7 Sportback) will be offered in a limited edition of 50 units for the Australian market. Even more astonishing, though, in terms of performance and fuel eff ciency, is Audi’s newest diesel offering – showcased in an A6 sedan last week. The biturbo, 3-litre diesel V6 manages a gargantuan 650 Newton metres of torque, combined with 230 kilowatts – to help make the A6 the fastest-accelerating diesel car on the market. Third in Audi’s list of unexpected delights was the latest iteration of the RS4 Avant, a high-performance wagon. Using a normally-aspirated 4.2-litre V8, the RS4 is not a new car – in fact this model has been around for a few years, but it’s been showered with a smattering of technological advances which, among other things, has delivered a remarkable 21 per cent reduction in fuel consumption. So despite pumping out 331 kilowatts and 430 Newton metres, it sips a

reasonable 10.7 litres per 100 kilometres. Happily, Audi has also trimmed the price to $149,400. The TT-RS-Plus surprised in a different way – by actually being quicker than its more celebrated sibling, the R8. It will scream to 100 kilometres per hour in just 4.1 seconds – that’s a quarter of a second quicker than the R8. The RS-Plus exists because someone at Audi decided the model it replaces, the TT-RS, wasn’t quite quick or powerful enough. So the ‘Plus’ means an additional 15 kilowatts (up to 265) and an extra 15 Newton metres. The result is a car that reaches the speed limit as fast as you can say its name. First came the standard TT (quick, but not outrageously so); followed by the TT-S (quite a bit quicker) with more power from its two-litre turbo engine. Not satisf ed with that, Audi found a f ve-cylinder turbo engine to create the rather manic TT-RS (extremely quick) before the engineers, in their wisdom, decided the world needed this TT-RS-Plus. I’m quite glad they did. Its output of 265 kilowatts might not sound that extraordinary, but in a car slightly larger than your average bathtub it’s frighteningly fast. The fact it’s quicker than the R8, a bona f de member of the supercar ranks, puts that into some perspective. Oh, Audi has f xed that too – with an amped-up version of the R8 – known as the R8 Plus and with a

V10 supplied by corporate cousin Lamborghini. That one takes just 3.6 seconds to reach the speed limit – but will cost you a cool $408,000. The R8 itself needs little introduction to anybody with the slightest interest in motor cars. They’ll be pleased to know, though, that the latest version, while retaining those drop-dead looks and that sonorous V8 engine, comes with some added fruit as part of its $279,500 price tag. Most notable of these is a new transmission, a seven-speed dual-clutch S-Tronic gearbox which is quicker and more fuel-eff cient than a manual, but can be driven like a conventional automatic. It replaces the previous six-speed R-Tronic transmission – a sequential shift device that, as I recall from the original R8, did the job quite nicely. Audi insists, however, that the new self-shifter improves performance and fuel economy in the R8 by almost one litre per 100 kilometres, as well as reducing its emissions. Thoughtful. The new R8 is also lighter, thanks to an aluminium spaceframe chassis weighing just 210 kilograms. The car also gets new LED headlights and dynamic indicators – which f ash in a sweeping motion in the direction you’re turning, among an array of new gadgets to make this already desirable machine slightly more so. It’s all part of Audi’s grand vision. Prepare to be delighted.

The luxury of choice.

CLASSIC CARS CELEBRATED

T

he world’s largest classic vehicle exhibition, Techno Classica in Essen Germany, celebrated its 25th anniversary this week. And BMW Group Classic – custodian of the BMW Group heritage – added extra f zz to the occasion with a handful of landmarks of its own. The 2013 edition of Techno

A Morris Mini Cooper S, 1966 – one of the rare cars on display at Techno Classica 2013.

Classica comes as the company is in the midst of celebrations, marking 90 years of Motorrad, 50 years of the Mini Cooper S, 40 years of the BMW 3.0 CSL in motor sport and 80 years of the BMW double-kidney front grilled. Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce was lighting the metaphorical candles for a very special birthday: Sir Frederick Henry Royce, would have turned 150 this year. “It’s a nice coincidence that so many landmark anniversaries have come together this year,” says Ulrich Knieps, head of BMW Group Classic. “And it brings home to the Techno Classica visitors once again the rich and fascinating heritage of all the BMW brands.” A rare 56-year-old Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud was displayed alongside a present-day ambassador for the company – a Rolls-Royce Ghost, adorned with a lazuli blue paint. BMW motorcycles and the Innocenti Mini, built for the Italian Market, were also on display.

It’s Jetta season.

Five stars for Mercedes, Land Rover, Toyota Maximum f ve-star ANCAP safety ratings were announced for three very different car types last week. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Land Rover Range Rover and Toyota 86 were the latest recipients of f ve-star safety ratings from the independent vehicle safety organisation, ANCAP. The new A-Class hatch offers a range of advanced Safety Assist Technologies including collision prevention assist and an ‘active’ bonnet as standard. Adding to the 15 large SUVs which already hold a f ve-star ANCAP safety rating is the Range Rover. This rating applies to variants with the TDV6 engine. The TDV8 and petrol variants are unrated. All variants of the Toyota 86 sports car also now hold the maximum ANCAP rating. Safety features on the 86 include dual frontal, side chest and

Range Rover Rapid side head (curtain) airbags and a driver knee airbag; emergency brake assist (EBA); and daytime running lights (DRL). The 86’s sister model, the Subaru BRZ, also holds a f ve-star ANCAP safety rating. “It doesn’t matter what type of car consumers are looking to buy. There’s now a multitude of makes, models and car types which have achieved the maximum f ve-star ANCAP safety rating,” says ANCAP Chairman, Lauchlan McIntosh. Consumers can search ANCAP safety ratings by car type, make, model or star rating at ancap.com.au.

Racing legend teams up with Mercedes-Benz

Zaf ra comes to town

Nissan goes electric

Former Formula 1 racing driver Michael Schumacher has joined forces with Mercedes-Benz in a long-term partnership to address issues of the future. Schumacher will be involved in the further development of Intelligent Drive, the Mercedes-Benz safety and comfort systems and will represent the company as an ambassador. The seven times Formula 1 world champion has been working on road safety for many years. As a racing driver, Schumacher’s motto was ‘If you don’t go forwards, you go backwards’. “The future interests me much more than the present and past,” Schumacher says. “During my Formula 1 time, I always believed that you must not allow yourself to rest on your laurels, but that you must continuously try to improve. “In so doing, I was very often able to rely on the help of all the technologies available to me in the car and use them to my advantage.

Opel’s Zaf ra Tourer is conf rmed as the next model to join Opel Australia’s product portfolio. The seven-seat people mover will be powered by the choice of a 1.6-litre turbo petrol or a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine. It will be available nationally mid-year. Pricing and specif cations will be released closer to the launch.

Nissan Motor Company is teaming up with FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, to conduct f eld tests for its 100 per cent electric e-NV200 commercial vehicle. The vehicle is being road-tested in Singapore and is scheduled for global launch in 2014.

March top sellers

Audi Australia has experienced one of its strongest f rst-quarter sales results in history. Sales to date are up more than 18 per cent on 2012 f gures while globally Audi AG has experienced record sales, up 6.8 per cent on 2012.

The BMW Group sold more vehicles in March than in any other month in its history. More than 190,000 BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce vehicles were sold for the month, a three per cent increase on last year’s record result.

] Corolla buyer wins fridge/freezer

MY MOTORING INSIDER The latest news from MWP’s man on the ground.

Not so fast, Bugatti No it hasn’t been beaten, just stripped of its title for a breach of the rules. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport that set the fastest speed for a production car in 2010 has been stripped of that title by Guinness World Records. Guinness World Records says it found the car used to set the world record of 431,072 kilometres per hour had been modif ed and as a result it had breached the rules. The UK Times claims a speed restrictor on the Veyron was deactivated.

Dubai has again shown the world it is a city of excess with a $533,000 purchase of a Lamborghini to add to its f eet. It is believed the sports car will not be chasing criminals but will be a show car for tourists. According to reports, deputy director, Khamis Matter al-Muzaina says it will show “how classy Dubai is”.

Hyundai’s global sales boss Edward Lee says the company is considering building a one-tonne ute. The aim is to f ll a glaring gap in its line-up and a ute will capitalise on the growing popularity of the vehicles in Australia and the US. Hyundai Australia spokesman Bill Thomas says the local arm would welcome an addition to its commercial vehicle range. Utes have become increasingly popular as work and family cars in recent years.

Ellen Hurst got more than she bargained for when she bought a new car last month. She was the lucky recipient of an in-car fridge/freezer and portable solar panels – part of a giveaway at the Ken Mills Toyota Product Expo, where people had the opportunity to test drive a range of cars, SUVs and commercials. The gift was provided by Camping Country Australia when Hurst bought a new generation Corolla hatch.

Often they’re 45-plus, with their eyes on retirement, and they’re buying their bigger dream home Damien Michael

WHEN BIGGER

IS BETTER

PREVIEW If you’re thinking of renovating or downsizing, think again. That beautiful big dream house by the water is more affordable than ever and buying now is a savvy investment, writes Jarna Baudinette.

I

n real estate circles you hear a lot of talk about downsizing: selling off the family home when the kids grow up, and buying something smaller and easier to manage. But at the moment, it seems some buyers are using the current market to do the opposite. Savvy buyers are taking advantage of renewed interest and lower prices to upsize to their dream home, whether it’s a waterfront mansion or a slice of prestige acreage. Next Property Group sales manager Damien Michael says many buyers are seeing value in real estate at the moment, especially at the higher end of the market. “We’re f nding the majority of people who are in that bracket are from out of town, and see the value of the Sunshine Coast relative to where they are,” Michael says. “Often they’re 45-plus, with their eyes on retirement, and they’re buying their bigger dream home.” Michael says for many buyers, a home close to the water is the ultimate aspiration, “whether it’s on the water or down on the coast”. “Down in the pocket of Alex, we’ve had a couple of nice deals in there,” he says. “Anything on the water, and also the Oceanic Drive beachfront area is def nitely generating interest.” Local business owners John and Kylie Leach recently upsized to a luxury waterfront home in St Lucia Crescent, Kawana Island. While their previous home was also on the canals at Parrearra, they had lived in it for 14 years and decided to take advantage of the current market to buy a new home, rather than renovate. “As our children have grown from toddlers into early teenage years, more space was desired with different entertaining options for all of us,” Kylie says. “We hadn’t been actively looking at

NEW DEVELOPMENT

LAST CHANCE TO BUY

F

ollowing a successful campaign of Mooloolaba’s Sea Pearl, property developer Leadbetter Property Developments has announced 100 per cent settlement success of its pre-sales in the $70 million residential development. With only 23 luxury homes built, 16 sales have been achieved to date. Prices start at $1.59 million for a 164-square metre home. Marketing agent from G1 Property, Simon Guilfoyle, says, “The sales success of Sea Pearl during the GFC wasn’t luck, it was driven by a determined developer joined by a team of local industry professionals and a unrivalled development site. Market indications and advice shows that we’re advancing into a positive property recovery and Sea Pearl Mooloolaba is emerging as one of Australia’s prime real estate buildings on beachfront esplanades.” Managing director Shane Leadbetter says the uniqueness of Sea Pearl’s position, and value to apartment owners, had been reinforced following an extensive search for other potential beachfront development sites. “We have been looking for another unique north-east-facing beachfront development site either in Mooloolaba or Noosa, in fact anywhere

Sea Pearl Mooloolaba is emerging as one of Australia’s prime real estate buildings on beachfront esplanades

in south-east Queensland like the Sea Pearl site at Mooloolaba Esplanade, and there isn’t another of this quality. “This reinforces that development site supply in prime holiday tourist precincts such as Mooloolaba and Noosa are diminishing and reinforces how valuable these opportunities are for our future and current owners.” G1 Property Mooloolaba is marketing all remaining homes and commercial leasing opportunities to the broader market.

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Focus on boosting your finances in creative and practical ways, doing something you love. Perhaps you could tutor others or start a mini business from home?

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 Mighty Mars marches into your sign on Saturday night – joining Venus, which is also in Taurus. So the next few weeks is the time to be bold and beautiful; confident and creative.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 Curiosity, restlessness and nervous energy are high on Saturday. Don’t skim the surface on Sunday – there is more going on than you realise. Take the time to investigate properly.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 If a work issue concerns you, make sure you look into it thoroughly. With Venus and Mars in your networking zone, charm and confidence will take you far.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 The moon and Jupiter boost your confidence levels, and you’re keen to solve everyone else’s problems. Don’t promise more than you can practically deliver though.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 It’s a wonderful weekend to learn something new or research a topic in depth. You’ll also gain insights into the hidden motivations of others, but use such information discreetly.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Love and lust are strong on Sunday, as Venus and Mars stimulate your intimacy zone. Single Librans – look for a lover who is also a friend. Someone you can really talk to.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Expect intense thoughts and conversations this weekend. Pluto urges you to look at current situations in a deep – and sometimes dark – way. Don’t leave any stone unturned.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 You’re feeling generous, and your friendly nature attracts positive people into your life. Keep your international connections going – who knows where they may lead?

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Expect some disruption to your weekend routine, with sudden surprises or unexpected guests. Single Capricorns – look for love with a tender Taurus or a caring Cancer.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Communication and travel are the current buzz words, as your restless Aquarian side kicks in. A weekend away would be perfect‚ and don’t forget to take your computer and phone.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 You’re in the mood to spend on Saturday, but be a practical Piscean and resist the urge to splurge. Don’t believe all a loved one tells you on Sunday, as you’re not getting the full picture.

SURF REPORT with MWP’s man in the water

Well if we are to believe the forecast we are looking at WNW to WSW winds on Saturday and Sunday. There should still be a small swell around so it could be a great weekend to hit it everywhere! Hopefully this is a good omen for winter swells, too. It should be two to three foot in most places on the Coast. The tides are looking perfect with an early-morning and after-lunch punt worth a try should those west winds do what is predicted. Remember, if you are doing big airs stay away from the old guys. If we seem cranky it’s just because we are jealous, so be kind!

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Quality whiting are taking yabbies along the northern bank of the Maroochy River near the mouth, mainly at night. Bream and f athead are taking whitebait at the southern end of Goat Island. SURF: Dart and sand whiting are on pippies at the Maroochy Bar. Catch tailor and f athead along Maroochy North Shore and Mudjimba using baby blue pilchards. Catch shovel-nosed rays and sharks at Alexandra Headland on mullet f llet. OFFSHORE: Head to close-in reefs for maori cod, moses perch, squire and sweetlip with snapper, pearl perch and trevally on the Barwon Banks. Spanner crabs are east of Coolum, with a few mackerel caught in same area this week. FRESHWATER: Somerset Dam is working well for bass, golden perch and jew with live shrimps and deep divers best. Locally, Lake McDonald and Borumba have been returning saratoga, bass and Mary River cod on f ies and lures.
