Editor’s letter

I

sn’t it interesting how the mood of an entire country, state or region changes? If you head back to 2008, when My Property Preview f rst hit the driveways and pathways of the Coast (in the days before that pesky GFC had made a real impact in our part of the world), the Coast’s business owners, investors, developers and retailers were happily bobbing along, doing their thing. Then a few years ago it all changed. Many of us had to tighten our belts. Property prices dipped, business owners cried poor and many a newly retired baby boomer had to head back to work. We toughed it out, and here at My Weekly Preview we have been heralding a change of mood for a while now. You see, we have noticed that among friends, colleagues and clients the past year or so has brought more optimism and conf dence. We thought we would test that theory, so this week we chatted to those in the know in property, development, education and other industries to f nd out if there really is a renewed sense of vitality out there. Want to know what we discovered? Well, grab a Red Tulip Humpty Dumpty and a cuppa tea and read on to f nd out in our Easter wrap cover story, which is, as always, over the page. This week we also have our regular my body feature (get health and beauty tips over on page 34), plus vibrant autumn must-haves in my style on page 32. And there is plenty to see and do over in my time, starting on page 28. In My Property Preview (which starts on page 39) we talk to agents about the vibe in their industry, plus we have Jemma Pearson new development, news and plenty of homes for sale.

It’s a wrap MWP finds lots of eggs in the region’s Easter basket as we discover our important industries of health, education, retail and new development are in great shape.

Michael Shadforth, from Ray White Commercial Maroochydore, is noticing a new-found confidence amongst local small-business owners. Since the federal election, there has been a dramatic turnaround in commercial real estate. There was an increase in activity in the f rst part of the year. Most noticeably are tenants deciding with more conf dence to expand or open up a new business. Michael Shadforth, managing director of Ray White Commercial Maroochydore, says, “Although there are still a lot of retail vacancies, the majority of quality space has been snapped up thanks to renewed conf dence, a lower dollar and a welcome return to sunshine.

It’s all happening at the Big Top. The iconic sails of Maroochydore’s f rst shopping centre are preparing to be replaced as part of the $20 million Big Top Market Fresh project. With a focus on fresh, local and convenient, Big Top Market Fresh will feature Shane Stanley’s Farmers’ Markets inside the centre alongside existing and exciting new retailers. Stage one is already well progressed (see last week’s MWP cover story) with seven new restaurants including the relocation of the Sunshine Coast’s only dedicated live music venue, Solbar, into larger premises to build on its reputation and ability to attract high-prof le musicians. Reed Property Group development director Ross Webb says Ocean Street will open from breakfast until late, offering dining and world-class entertainment in a safe, family-friendly environment with easy access to parking, public transport and taxis. Stage one is opening from Easter with the f nal project to be delivered later this year. Woolworths, Malouf Pharmacies and the newsagency have continued to trade in the existing Big Top Shopping Centre throughout the refurbishment.

“Sales of house and land sales in the hospital districts has increased and the demand for industrial space has improved with Caloundra Industrial Estate selling quickly.” “We have also seen the energetic and continued success of new food and beverage owners like the Velo Project, Vandy’s and the Good Bean. These young entrepreneurial owners are setting up quality operations in the most unlikely locations, a trend noted in blogs like Beanhunter. “House and land sales in the hospital districts have increased and the demand for industrial space has improved with Caloundra Industrial Estate selling quickly. Hastings Street is enjoying a turnaround and demand is restored to pre-GFC times. Better trading conditions have increased investments like [restaurant] Miss Moneypenny’s. “Nambour always unearths surprising success stories with the allure of low rents and great spaces allowing unique retail concepts like Husk & Honey, Time Machine and Asylum Clothing to thrive.”

Rod Russell from Savvy Business Sales has had a busy start to the year. Sales of businesses on the Sunshine Coast have increased dramatically since last year’s federal election. There are numerous factors why, including stability in the economy, record low interest rates, high unemployment and the endless growth opportunities available on the Sunshine Coast. We are seeing abnormally high redundancies from the southern states and many mining areas, which have sparked unusually strong interest in businesses priced to sell up to $800,000. Many families are relocating and combining a sea change with the desire to be self-employed. The Sunshine Coast offers the perfect lifestyle for all ages. We have exceptional schools, beaches and residential areas and considering the amount of new development currently underway, we expect to see a consistent growth in the prof tability of small to medium business. Many Coast locals are attracted to business ownership as there are limited opportunities here in mining, manufacturing, farming or industry so buying a business is great way to stay close to home. The benef ts of owning a business are huge and I can’t think of a better time or a better place to become your own boss than now on the Sunshine Coast.

USC’s Greg Hill is excited about the growth of education on the Coast.

Sunshine Coast TAFE attracts students from far and wide More than 230 students from 23 countries chose Sunshine Coast TAFE to further their studies in 2014. Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay Institute of TAFE director Leeza Boyce says it is the largest number of international students the institute has welcomed and they come from all corners of the globe including Bolivia, Cameroon, China, Italy, Nepal, Peru and Taiwan. She says they are enrolled in a wide range of courses with the most popular including f tness, business and nursing. “Despite international student enrolments across the country’s vocational education sector experiencing a moderate decline over the past year, Sunshine Coast TAFE has maintained its strong presence and continued to enjoy increasing numbers, with our international student population almost doubling in size since last year,” Boyce says. “The combination of the Coast’s busy business centres, scenic beaches and idyllic surrounds is proving the perfect setting for education and training for our international students. We have also made a big impact on the international vocational education and training scene, with a strong reputation for providing real employment opportunities that students can apply anywhere in the world. “We look forward to continued growth as we amalgamate with Wide Bay Institute of TAFE, combining our skills and knowledge to improve education and training delivered from Caloundra through to Bundaberg.”

The University of the Sunshine Coast is playing a crucial role in boosting the educational aspirations and the economy of the Sunshine Coast. USC’s Vice-Chancellor professor Greg Hill says the university injects more than $536 million a year into the local economy and helps local industries by providing job-ready professional graduates. “As health is the number one employer on the Coast, USC ref ects this with its programs in allied health – such as nursing science, paramedic science, psychology, occupational therapy and biomedical science – among its largest degrees,” he says.

“Students at USC have access to the very best available facilities anywhere in the world.” This year USC introduced new degrees in law and creative industries in response to strong community demand, and he says major building expansion ensures the university stays ahead of its continued rapid growth. Work began recently on a $36.5 million Engineering Learning Hub, which received funding from the Australian Government’s Education Investment Fund, and will feature state-of-the-art visualisation laboratories and virtual reality technologies. “USC is where the rubber hits the road as far as providing the qualif cations the region needs and providing our young people with the qualif cations they’ll need to succeed.” Hill says USC’s growing research reputation is making the region a preferred destination for high-quality staff and students, while its Innovation Centre supports start-up businesses and provides important training opportunities.

A healthy outlook The recently constructed GP Super Clinic in Sippy Downs opened last month. Located opposite the University of the Sunshine Coast campus, the 3000-square metre clinic is operated by Ochre Health. Six doctors are currently practising there, with the ability to accommodate eight more. Five registered nurses are also working in the centre. The new facility includes a large general practice, X-ray and imaging, pathology and a pharmacy, and a number of allied health providers will be available including psychologists, dieticians, podiatrists, physiotherapists and exercise physiologists. According to the centre its focus will be on the management of chronic disease plus acute care through the walk-in service. By far the biggest development generating buzz is the hospital precinct, including the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital, which opened in December last year, and the Sunshine Coast Public Hospital, which is set to open in late 2016. The $1.8 billion public hospital is Australia’s first major new hospital in more than 20 years on a greenfield site, and will, by 2021 become a 738-bed hospital set to treat about 10,000 inpatients per year. When it opens in 2016, the public hospital will need more than 3500 staff, and by 2021 about 6000 doctors, nurses, administrative and allied health professionals will be required to run it. The Oceanside health precinct includes a new town being built around the hospital. continued over>

Bill Darby from the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce, Tourism & Events is upbeat about the year ahead. With the sun shining brightly across the Sunshine Coast, most would be well aware of the bumper season enjoyed by tourism operators in recent months. Returning to the beautiful weather for which Queensland is famous, coupled with signs of an improving economy, the Sunshine Coast has experienced an estimated 10 to 15 per cent increase in visitor numbers. Many accommodation houses have reported their best summer holiday season in almost a decade. Pleasingly, the outlook for 2014 brings more good news for the Coast’s tourism and hospitality businesses. While the weather remains kind, a string of sporting and cultural events will continue to drive visitation to the region. This year, the new Sunshine Coast Events Board will collaborate with major event promoters to ensure

Sunshine Coast Business Council Chair Sandy Zubrinich shares her insights with MWP. our region receives even greater economic benef t from event activity. In mid September, the state’s tourism juggernaut, DestinationQ, comes to the Sunshine Coast. This will be the third year in a row where the government’s top decision-makers focus on building better tourism strategies. Approximately 350 delegates from around the state volunteer their time to attend this valuable forum. Following the Sunshine Coast Council’s restructure, a new-look Economic Development Unit is purposed with co-ordinating the roll-out of the Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDS). Being identif ed as high-value sectors, tourism, sport, leisure and events will be well supported in 2014 and beyond. Private sector investment in attractions such as an expanded Mooloolaba Sea Life Underwater World and Aussie World seems well timed to pay big dividends.

Retail trade represents about nine per cent of the Coast’s gross domestic product (compared to 4.4 per cent nationally) so the retail sector is crucial to the local economy’s health. Sunshine Coast Business Council chair Sandy Zubrinich says projects such as the airport, university expansion and the Bruce Highway upgrade will generate signif cant growth in many sectors, including retail. The Kawana health precinct will create jobs not just in the health sector, she says the reality is these projects have many positive economic benef ts, particularly for the retail sector. “Quite simply, these projects attract more people needing more retail services.” She says development of the Maroochydore City Centre Priority Development Area has already impacted on retail with expansion of Sunshine Plaza approved and redevelopment of the Big Top, which will help avoid funds leaking to Brisbane. “Retail is a vital sector on the Coast and we need to continue to build this industry.”

MUSIC BUYERS IN A SPIN

V

inyl is making a comeback. And we’re not talking about the stuff used to cover your lounge suite. It seems people are increasingly taking a walk down retro lane to buy old – and new – records. In fact Lee Hillman, the owner of BackBeat Records at Nambour, says vinyl sales doubled worldwide last year and they did even better locally. “In Australia [sales] increased by 70 per cent last year so it’s on the rise and it’s gaining momentum,” Hillman says. But it’s not just older people looking to reclaim memories who are buying records. Hillman says younger customers make up his main clientele. And it’s not just old vinyl they are looking for – contemporary modern artists are also recording records. “I think it’s got a warmer sound,” Hillman says. The artwork is also popular and some people frame album covers. There are, of course, records that

are collectable items and those that are in high demand. “It used to be ’50s stuff but young people are not so interested in ’50s stuff,” Hillman says. They have moved towards music from the ’70s and ’80s and the sounds of punk and old metal. “Elvis is a bit dead in the water.” Although he says the Beatles still have a following. But the biggest sellers are the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits and the Doors. Easter Saturday is International Record Store Day and Hillman is expecting a few collectors and vinyl enthusiasts to come out of the woodwork. He has owned BackBeat Records for 18 years, f rst at the Big Top in Maroochydore before moving to the Howard Street premises in Nambour a few years ago, and says last year’s International Record Day was the biggest day his business has seen. He has teamed up with Nambour’s other record store

BackBeat Records owner Lee Hillman Time Machine to mark the day. This year he is celebrating with a sale on stock, including $3 off LPs. A solo artist will also perform in store throughout the day. Time Machine, which is located on Currie Street, will have 15 per cent off all secondhand LPs and half-price 45s.

THE BUSINESS OF BICKIES

T

he humble Anzac biscuit has had a resurgence thanks to a Sunshine Coast-based British couple who have turned the Aussie icon into a growing business. Haitham Razagui and Tace Clifford were introduced to Anzac biscuits by a relative’s Australian boyfriend when they were still living in the United Kingdom. “They’ve kind of been with us ever since,” Clifford says. The couple loved them so much they learnt how to make the biscuit and took them whenever they were invited somewhere. They were so popular people were disappointed if they didn’t bring them along. The couple spent four years in Melbourne before embarking on a trip around the nation to f nd a place they wanted to settle down. “Our decision to leave the UK was motivated by Australia’s natural beauty and diversity,” Clifford says. The Sunshine Coast’s climate, lush landscapes and beautiful

beaches ticked all the right boxes. But Razagui says the calibre of food on the Sunshine Coast, with vibrant markets and organic food, was one of the key ingredients in the couple’s decision to relocate to the region. “What we have here on the Sunshine Coast is a real food movement,” he says. “[Kunara at] Forest Glen – that is a massive supermarket for organic food. It’s just a great sign of how the food is here.” Based on the popularity of their Anzac biscuits and the diff culty they had sourcing good-quality Anzacs here in Australia, they decided to launch a business baking their own organic biscuits. And so the High Heeled Baker was born. Since launching late last year their organic biscuit, OrgAnzacs, is rapidly gaining in popularity. “People in this area have a real appreciation and desire to eat well and that is ref ected in the response to our product,”Razagui says.

Australia and New Zealand both lay claim to the popular biscuit but the sweet treat we eat today is a far cry from the hard savoury biscuit that was used in soldiers’ rations during World War I. However Clifford says the story behind the Anzac biscuits is a winner with customers. “Tourists were fascinated about the story and obviously to be able to buy them and tastee them,” she says. s. Many even take them home me as gifts and Thee High Heeled Baker’s Facebook pagee has received likes from around the world as a result. The couple bakes more than a thousand biscuits each week in a commercial kitchen at the Lake

Razagui and Clifford started off selling them at local markets but they are now available in a number of organic supermarkets, and they made their f rst delivery to a Brisbane cafe last week. The couple attended last month’s Café Biz trade show in Brisbane where they gained interest from

a wide range of businesses. “The buzz around our stand was amazing,” Razagui says. They are hoping more trade shows will help spread the word further and would like to see their Anzac biscuits end up in cafes in Melbourne. For more information visit www.organzacs.com.au

Razagui and Clifford’s tips for businesses starting out • Don’t underestimate the level of time and dedication required to succeed • Be prepared for many long days and long nights • Ask questions • Get involved with other people who are running businesses • Keep learning • Have fun • Focus on the rewards

Back in the day Anzac biscuits are synonymous with ANZAC soldiers and have a soft spot in the hearts of Australians and New Zealanders. While both nations lay claim to the biscuits origins, the Anzac tile the soldiers consumed was quite different from the sweet treat we love today. Originally it was a hard savoury biscuit used as a substitute for bread in soldiers’ rations during World War I. Recipes for the Anzac biscuits we are familiar with today began appearing in cookbooks during the 1920s.

LOCAL MAKES NATIONAL TEAM Pre-dawn starts are nothing unusual for Caloundra student Caitlin Gilliman. Recently named as the newest member of the 2014 Australian Junior Canoe Sprint Team, she starts her day at 4am with training on Maroochy River. But the early mornings are just the start of a jam-packed schedule for the 17-year-old. The Pacif c Lutheran College (PLC) student tries to f t in a cardio session at midday and more kayaking in the afternoon while also juggling her education. The school recognised Gilliman’s talent and encouraged her to pursue it, giving her the option to achieve her year 12 accreditation over three years. But she is not one to rest on her laurels and has set out to gain other qualif cations, including a Certif cate III in sports and recreation. Gilliman is also studying for a dual degree in education and

science with a major in physical education and health at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Despite balancing year 12, university, high-intensity training and international competitions, Gilliman still f nds time to work as her school’s kayak instructor. “My teachers at PLC were the ones who originally saw my potential for kayaking and encouraged me to push myself,” Gilliman says. “I love giving back to the school because it means that I can help others reach their dreams too.” Success is not new for the teenager, who was accepted into the Under 17 Australian Sprint Kayaking team last year and ranked as sixth in the world at several events. Recently she participated in the Australian Institute of Sport training camp, alongside Australian kayaker Naomi Flood, who won the 2009 Ironwoman series and competed in the 2012 Olympics.

Bits and Bytes >> OwnFone Tech junkies will loathe OwnFone. Parents and seniors will likely love it. There’s no texting, no camera, no social media, no games and d no apps. That means no sexting, no cyberbullying, no timewasting, and no bill shock. The OwnFone has launched in Australia and is about as simple as a mobile can get. It’s a 40-gram plastic body, about the size of eight stacked credit cards, with a handful of buttons including volume, ‘answer’ and ‘end call’. The remaining buttons have one function: to call whomever’s number has been pre-programmed into each – be it mum, dad, a friend, a sibling, or triple-0. It can accommodate up to 12 numbers. And that’s it. For kids, it’s an easy way to keep in contact with friends and family. The simple interface will probably also appeal to seniors overwhelmed by the complexity of smartphones. And the battery lasts longer than a smartphone’s. On the downside there’s no voicemail function or caller ID, and to change a number on the phone, you must return it to OwnFone for reconfiguration. But if you’d like to limit your kids’ ability to get into cybertrouble, the OwnFone is your best bet.

CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS Security researchers are encouraging people to change all of their passwords in the wake of flaw discovered recently. Passwords, credit cards and other sensitive data are at risk after security researchers discovered a problem with an encryption technology used to securely transmit email, e-commerce transactions, social networking posts and other web traff c. Security researchers say the threat, known as Heartbleed, is serious, partly because it has remained undiscovered for more than two years. Attackers can also exploit the vulnerability without leaving any trace, so anything sent during that time has potentially been compromised. It’s not known, though, whether anyone has actually used it to conduct an attack. The problem affects only the variant of SSL/TLS known as OpenSSL, but that happens to be one of the most common on the internet. AAP

DEALING WITH QUEENSLAND'S ACCUMULATED DEBT PROBLEMS THE STRONG CHOICES WE ALL MAKE TODAY HAVE A CRITICAL IMPACT ON THE FUTURE FUNDING OF VITAL PROJECTS RIGHT ACROSS THE STATE. WE ALL WANT OUR QUEENSLAND ECONOMY TO GROW STRONGER.

New schools, new hospitals, new roads, bridges and highways, together with new rail lines – these are all being planned for construction across Queensland. But to turn these plans into reality we first have to deal with the accumulated debt of the past ten years. An $80 billion debt with an interest bill of $4 billion every year.

TEN YEARS OF GROWING DEBT = $80 BILLION OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS QUEENSLAND’S DEBT HAS GROWN FROM $15.7 BILLION IN 2004-05 TO $80.4 BILLION IN THE 2015-16 YEAR

To fix Queensland’s debt and interest problems, strong choices have to be made; we can either significantly increase taxes, reduce services, or sell or lease some assets.

$4 BILLION INTEREST BILL EVERY YEAR = FEWER SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, ROADS. We are currently paying an interest bill of $4 billion a year. In one year, $4 billion could build 25 new schools, redevelop and expand a 300-bed regional hospital and construct almost 900km of highway.

WE NEED TO LOWER DEBT TO TURN PLANS INTO REALITY. We need to lower Queensland’s debt to a sustainable level The Queensland Independent Commission of Audit recommended debt be reduced by between $25 and $30 billion*.

HAVE YOUR SAY TODAY.

The choices we all make today will have a critical impact on the funding of vital projects all over the State and into the future. CHOICES: We have to make strong choices today so we are able to invest in the Queensland we all want for the future.

Speeding will be targeted in a new Easter road safety campaign, which aims to maintain Queensland’s record low road toll. Transport and Main Roads minister Scott Emerson says the campaign is aimed at drivers who think a couple of kilometres over the limit is safe. “Speed contributes to more than one in f ve road deaths in Queensland, making it one of the biggest killers on our roads, and slow speed crashes contribute to half of all speeding deaths,” Emerson says. About half of speed-related crashes result in injuries or fatalities happening at 10 kilometres an hour or less over the speed limit, so this campaign will target Queenslanders who have admitted to travelling up to seven kilometres an hour over the limit.

In a road safety f rst, a personalised billboard means anyone can go online and submit their name to pledge they have no time for speeding. The campaign will run until April 21. For more information head to jointhedrive.qld.gov.au.

The market has grown to include more than 120 stallholders including more than 20 fruit and vegetable stalls, many selling locally grown, seasonal produce. The market, which trades from 6am to midday every Sunday, is a community project managed by the volunteer members of the Mooloolaba Lions Club. Each year the Lions club distributes about $150,000 to causes locally and around the nation. In its 15th year the club is on target to increase the total donation made from market funds to more than $1.4 million.

REEF FAST APPROACHING ‘POINT OF NO RETURN’

T

he southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef is considered to be one of the most vibrant parts of the marine park, enjoyed as an underwater paradise by snorkellers and divers. But scientists in the region believe that even this reef oasis is dying. They’ve devised a shockingly visual way to show exactly how fast the sea’s rising temperature and acidif cation caused by CO2 emissions are killing it. On the Heron Island Research Station, the largest facility of its kind on the GBR, 12 white tanks each a metre in diameter offer a picture of the reef’s future. Each has been stuffed with sediments, live rock and corals found on the marine shelf 300 metres off the white powdery beaches of the island, which sits 72 kilometres off Queensland’s coast to the north-east of Gladstone. Then the f sh, sea cucumbers, sea stars and other organisms are added. “We build up to what we refer to

[ as patch reef that looks exactly like what we see down there,” says associate professor of the University of Queensland Sophie Dove, who manages the experiment and is on Heron every few weeks to collect data. Three of the tanks show what the reef looked like in pre-industrial times around 1900 – beautiful and blooming. Another three show the reef in the present day, where it’s also looking pretty healthy. But Dove warns the future will lie in the murky, green slime of three of the remaining six tanks unless action is taken. Those three show what a reef in the year 2150 will look like if current CO2 rates are maintained – what Dove calls the “do nothing” path. The rest show what the reef will look like by 2150 if CO2 output is decreased: the “do something” pathway. “In the ‘do something’ scenarios, the f rst summer comes along and there are some corals we just lose and they never come back,” says Dove. “They’re dead, they get covered with algae and that’s it. Some of the other corals went bone white for four months but as winter came, we saw them regain their pigmentation again and they survived and have grown over time. But when we come to the ‘do nothing’ tanks, we have the f rst summer and all the corals die and we have a reef without living hard coral but full of cyanobacteria, a somewhat toxic type of bacteria, and other weeds. “It’s quite an unpleasant soup. “We go through the winter and we see other algae come into the tanks with the cyanobacteria and over time, no recovery occurred.” The tanks have been created using data from a buoy that bobs above Heron’s reef crest and which has measured the water temperature and PCO2 concentration of the water, associated with acidif cation, every two hours since 2009. This data has allowed academics to calculate

Without coral, there is little hope for the creatures that call the reef home, including 1500 species of f sh and 134 species of sharks and rays

10 WAYS TO SAVE THE REEF BY BECOMING MORE CARBON NEUTRAL AT HOME 1. Use newer, more energy-efficient products. Laptop computers, for example, use half the energy of desktops. 2. Replace light bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and turn off lights when you leave the room. 3. Leave your car at home and use public transport. Even better, ride your push bike or walk. 4. If you must use a car, choose an electric one or one that is more energy-efficient, and carpool with others.

that the ‘do something’ tanks would be just under two degrees higher in temperature from the present day; the ‘do nothing’ tanks just under four degrees higher – with temperature variations for summer and winter. Without coral, there is little hope for the creatures that call the reef home, including 1500 species of f sh, 134 species of sharks and rays, six species of sea turtles and more than 30 species of marine mammals. The human populations and industries along the Queensland coastline also rely on the coral to protect shorelines from Pacif c storms. “A reef buffers about 90 per cent of the energy in a wave,” Dove says. “Taking the brunt of the impact damages the coral, but in the right conditions, it is able to regenerate itself between storms.” AAP

5. Holiday closer to home so you can limit your air travel. 6. Buy food locally. Imported products are a huge contributor of carbon emissions. 7. Adopt solar power at home. 8. Use environmentally friendly cleaning products. After they get flushed down our drains, they eventually end up in the sea. 9. Recycle and create less litter, which also ends up in the sea. Take your own coffee cup to the cafe. 10. Plant some trees or help fund projects that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

CAN YOU TAKE THE HEAT?

Chris Harris is from Ord Minnett in Buderim

A

lmost all large shocks start small. Aside from sudden natural disasters, the shocks that really hurt performance start as small fires. When fed by lots of kindling (contagion) they keep growing before burning out or consuming the block. The majority soon burn out. When a shock emerges, whether positive or negative, investors have the choice of ignoring it, and even buying the assets negatively impacted by it, or selling the assets most affected, either for similar ones further from the blaze, or moving

into cash, reducing overall risk. There is no f xed, simple rule on what investors (active and passive) should do in each case. We judge each shock on whether it has a risk of growing and contagion. Today’s most prominent situation is the state of the US economy and the Federal Reserve’s role in continuing to stimulate it. Remember, US-dollar-based investment markets comprise more than half of global markets. Our strategy with regards to the American market is based on where it is positioned in the business cycle and when the next recession may occur. From an investor’s point of view, it is instructive to see a business cycle as a risk cycle. A recession could occur on the back of overheating and overconf dence in the real economy and/or in f nancial markets. In the real economy, it raises inf ation in goods and services that requires

monetary policy tightening, which then leads to an economic correction. It can also take place in the f nancial economy in the form of an asset boom, then bubble, and then a crash, again taking the economy down. The last two American recessions were more f nancially triggered. What will it be next time? In terms of GDP growth, the current expansion is the weakest since World War II. With core inf ation just above one per cent, we see little evidence of economic overheating. In f nancial terms though, the expansion seems much more advanced due to stimulus. The more advanced nature of the f nancial cycle versus the economic cycle makes it appear likely that the cycle will end with an asset boom and bust, rather than with a more traditional real economy faced with inf ation overheating. This raises the question of where such a bubble and bust will appear.

An obvious candidate is the Chinese leverage cycle, which is well advanced and which Chinese policy-makers are trying to def ate. A credit crisis in China would be more contained than the recent US and European crises, given the limited exposure of foreign investors to the country and the large pool of foreign reserves that policy makers could apply to ease the situation. A second recession scenario could come from the Federal Reserve misinterpreting the anomalous decline in the unemployment rate and suddenly having to lift the cash rate signif cantly in two years or so in response to rising wage pressures. In this case, a recession might start in 2017. Chris Harris is an authorised representative (no 435773) of Ord Minnett Ltd, AFS licence 237121.

Do you find yourself irritated, not able to feel excited, or constantly thinking negatively? Do you have trouble sleeping, your mind won’t stop racing, or you wake too often through the night? Do you get anxiety at bed time where you can hear your heart beating while your head is on the pillow? One single underlying issue can cause all of these symptoms including anxiety, nervousness, depression, or lack of excitement and motivation for life. Stress feels overwhelming, and little upsets cause feelings of anger. Palpitations, excessive heat in the body, tingling in the hands or feet, irritable bowel syndrome, foggy brain and lack of concentration including ADHD in children, can also be present. Often these symptoms have been going on for months, years or even decades. You may suffer just a few of the above symptoms or perhaps all of them. The cause has been found in the gut and seems to be widespread throughout the community. It is a malicious infection mainly picked up from travelling overseas, or having contact with someone who has travelled which is often only detected in specialised testing. This infection has been shown to release a neuronal toxin, affecting the nervous system physically and mentally. It has not often been associated with mental health conditions even

[ 26 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 17, 2014

Often, sufferers are able to correlate the first sign of symptoms, coinciding with a trip overseas where they experienced a tummy bug causing diarrhoea or vomiting. Australia is so close to the Indonesian countries it can be transmitted from, and Australians travel there often for their holidays, so imagine the amount of people coming back who could be infected and how it can be passed on quite easily through schools, day care centres, or places of work. Fortunately it is quite easy to address, and most symptoms are relieved as soon as the infection has been eradicated. I have seen patients who have suffered depression for four decades, and after treatment for one month have improved out of sight. Other patients have shown improvement after just one week of treatment. Bacterial infections are just one part of a 7 step process for permanently treating depression, anxiety or ADHD. We have successfully treated hundreds of patients within months of beginning treatment. These are not conditions with unknown cause like many believe, and can be resolved quickly.

If you would like to know more, call the centre and arrange a free half hour consultation, or view the webinar “7 Steps to Freedom from Anxiety & Depression” at www.advancedwellness.com.au. A webinar is simply a seminar that you can see on the internet.

though studies are available showing its impact on the brain. It can be passed on from person to person very easily, and so more than one person in a household may be suffering from similar symptoms and both may be affected.

The company says that to emit a small puff reminiscent of bacon, the user needs an external device that plugs into the headphone jack. The app itself produces the sound of bacon sizzling in a pan.

EASTER SUNDAY LIVE MUSIC Doc Span & Tim Gaze from 7-10pm OPEN TIL LATE New Zealand chocolatier Murray Langham believes the chocolate shapes and centres that attract you – and how you play with the wrapper – may be a guide to your inner self.

While practising as a therapist, Langham became curious about the great number of his clients who loved chocolate. He began to observe what sort of chocolates and centres they liked and says he gained great insight into their behaviour as a result. Langham has now written two books on the topic and believes our choice of a particular centre links to our emotions, moods, inner thoughts and self esteem. It may seem like a stretch, but in honour of Easter here are some of our favourites: ALMOND Climbing the almond tree of prosperity, you desire success

and you like to celebrate your achievements. SOFT CARAMEL Without making a fuss, you conscientiously get things done. COCONUT You dream of island hideaways in sun, sand and surf. HAZELNUT You’re a person who works with the wisdom of mother earth. You’re aware of the energies around you and in harmony with nature. TURKISH DELIGHT You’re a person on a spiritual quest. RASPBERRY You seek the innocence of childhood; the fun times when life was simple. AAP

What is your health age?

The Sunshine Coast comes out on top in a new national survey. Ar you really as young Are as you feel? If you’re llike the majority of Australian women, A yyou’re actually falling sslightly behind when comparing your ‘health co age’ to your ‘real age’. age Con Conducting the most compre comprehensive health survey of its kind in Australia, Priceline Pharmacy’ Pharmacy’s What’s Your Health Age? survey found that Australian women’s health Au aage is 5.5 years older than their actual age, while men’s health age is 4.9 years older than their actual age. There were four main health and lifestyle m issu issues that were causing wom women to have an elevated he health age. These

included lack of sleep, lack of exercise, stress, and failing to be aware of their cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Of those who have a family history of high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, 25 per cent were found to not know their blood pressure levels and 25 per cent were unaware of their cholesterol levels. But the great news for locals is the survey also revealed the top f ve regions that had the smallest difference between health age and actual age (and are therefore the healthiest). The Sunshine Coast made that list. The other four were central Perth, north Sydney, central Melbourne and the north-east of NSW. Other important f ndings coming out of the survey were that 26 per cent of people are highly stressed, women are more stressed than men (27 per cent compared to 19 per cent), 31 per cent of women feel their quality of sleep is low and only 54 per cent exercise for at least three hours a week.

BALANCED INTEGRATIVE HEALTH

“ It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day and I’m feeling good! ”

Stress makes you sneeze Allergy sufferers are more likely to experience f are-ups if they are stressed, research suggests. Experts at Ohio State University in the US analysed 179 patients for a period of 12 weeks. Of this group, 39 per cent had more than one allergy f are-up and were found to be the ones suffering the most stress. The research was published in the journal Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. “While alleviating stress won’t cure allergies, it may help decrease episodes of intense symptoms,” says lead study author and allergist Amber Patterson. Experts recommend allergy sufferers relieve stress through meditation and deep breathing, not smoking or drinking caffeine, making time for fun and relaxation, adopting a healthy diet and ensuring they get enough sleep.

MICRODERMABRASION KICK START FACIAL

The team at Maroochydore’s Strut Hair teach you how to achieve glamorous curls at home. Step 1: Prepare the hair by shampooing, conditioning and applying a volumising product which contains heat protection, such as Kevin Murphy Anti-Gravity Spray. Part the hair where desired. Step 2: Dry your hair, ensuring you lift up and dry the hair against the roots to give volume without stretching or straightening the hair. It is important to remember here that curling wands will not touch the roots of your hair, therefore you must have your hair parted in the correct place when drying is completed. Ensure the hair is completely dry as damp hair can be damaged when heated with a heating tool. Step 3: Section your hair into six vertical segments around the head of approximately two to three f ngers wide each. Starting at the front, wrap your f rst section onto the curling wand directing the hair backwards off the face. We recommend using the

Jessica Luise

Kevin Murphy Loves Curls Cortex Curling Wand as it comes with variable size attachments. Step 4: Repeat this on every section until you have gone around the entire head and reached the section closest to the face on the opposite side. On the f nal section direct the curl onto the wand so that it is off the face, to replicate the original front section. Do not brush curls out or break them up. Allow to cool and set for 10 minutes. Step 5: Using a wide-tooth afro comb, break up curls and stretch them out, creating waves. Repeat this process until the desired result is achieved.

The price of beauty Supermodel Bar Refaeli has splashed out on a one-of-a-kind facial by covering her face in 24-carat liquid gold. The 28-year-old has tried the new anti-ageing beauty treatment, which is gaining popularity among wealthy celebrities. Refaeli posted a photo of herself on Instagram showing her face dripping with the expensive liquid. The gold Bee Venom Facial costs $US1600 (about $1,730), according to MarieClaire.co.uk. This isn’t the first time Refaeli has tried out unusual pampering procedures – in December, she shared a snap of herself receiving a ‘vampire facial’, which involves drawing blood before massaging it back into the skin to help tackle wrinkles.

Hitting the shelves later this month is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear FakeOut mascara, $24.95. Made from 100 per cent natural origin lash extension fibres, it promises to deliver full-on false lashes without the irritation. Lashes naturally appear thicker, longer, more lush and gorgeous for up to 24 hours. You have to love that!

Keep a lid on it Vinegar may kill rather than cure victims of box jellyfish stings, Queensland researchers have found. The remedy, used for decades to treat stings, causes up to 60 per cent more venom from the lethal jellyf sh to be discharged into the victim. The f ndings have prompted calls for the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) to revise its sting treatment guidelines. Research co-author and venom expert Jamie Seymour says the research changed his mind about vinegar. “I thought I’d be able to show the world why you use vinegar,” the James Cook University associate professor says. “But what we found was that by using vinegar, what you’re effectively doing is increasing the venom load in the victim.” Much of the venom ‘f red’ by a box jellyf sh doesn’t go into a person’s bloodstream. But vinegar activates the venom that would not otherwise affect the sting victim, James Cook University and Cairns Base Hospital researchers found. Patients who had vinegar poured

Don’t have time to hit the gym and do all the housework? Why not work out while you clean? Try incorporating lunges when you vacuum, squats while loading the dishwasher or get down on your hands and knees to clean the f oor rather than mopping.

RARE BEAUTIES FOR SALE

I

f you are looking for a French mistress, Shannons just might be able to help you out. A delightful and rare 1926 Chenard Senechal ‘Torpille’, lovingly named ‘My Little French Mistress’ by its elderly Australian owner, is seeking a new owner at Shannons Melbourne Classic Auction on May 5. Its existing owner f rst met and fell in love with this French miss when he was just 17. He bought and restored her mechanically then sold her 18 months later. The little roadster, with its cheeky Australian-built two-seater boat-tail body, is one of three superb vintage cars crossing the block at the May auction. Its companions are an American 1930 Ford ‘Improved’ Model A Tourer and a 1924 British Crossley 12/14hp Tourer. The Chenard is believed to be one of only 30 surviving 1500cc Senechal models worldwide and the only one in Australia. After realising her rarity the vendor regretted his decision to sell her and bought her back when in his

late 30s. He has since completed a full restoration and has updated her mechanically with 12-volt electrics. Combined with her four-wheel brakes and four-speed crash gearbox, she is a distinctive and very useable vintage vehicle and – appropriately for a scantily clad French beauty – featured in the 2010 RACV calendar. Because of her rarity, provenance and condition, Shannons expects the Chenard Senechal to represent great buying in the $18,000 to $22,000 range. The owner’s period driving gloves, helmet and goggles are included in the sale. If the French vehicle is not your style you might prefer the simplicity of the ‘Improved’ Ford Model A. With its uncomplicated threespeed gearbox and mechanical brakes, it is a sought-after vintage tourer and the example being auctioned has the added value of having received a full body-off restoration in the 1970s. Coming out of long-term ownership, the Ford was a Victorian Drivers’ Club trophy winner in the early 1980s and presents in good usable condition.

This rare 1926 Chenard Senechal ‘Torpille’ is dubbed My Little French Mistress by its elderly owner

This 1924 model 12/14HP n Crossley Tourer presented in lovely condition following a full restoration in the late 1980s. It has been used regularly as a wedding vehicle for the vendor’s ndo or’ rs family and friends and because o off th tthee model’s popularity as a good useable bl and easy-to-maintain classic, is expected to sell in the $22,000 to $28,000 range. Even more desirable is a 1924 model 12/14HP Crossley Tourer presented in lovely condition following a full restoration in the late 1980s and sparing use since. One of the features of the Crossley’s red and black coachwork

dP is its A American-sourced Pierce rear windscreen that protects rear seat occupants from wind buffeting, making it a delightful car for topdown touring. Offered with its original engine and in mechanically sound condition according to the vendor, it is expected to attract bids in the $28,000 to $34,000 range.

Get happy

My Property Preview discovers there is plenty to smile about this Easter, with this wrap-up of the local real estate industry.

CONFIDENCE IS ON THE RISE

Bevan Horsnell, Belle Property Buderim

“There’s no doubt that the market we’ve experienced in the early stages of 2014 is more positive than it has been for some years. Buyer conf dence picked up considerably towards the end of 2013 as buyers became aware of the opportunities available, which resulted in increased sales volumes and fewer days on market. “While a few years ago there were no buyers and too much stock, now the reverse is starting to occur – we have people in the market ready to buy but not enough stock to meet demand, especially in the mid-range price bracket. However, after a tough few years local sellers are beginning to realise that if their home is priced well, it is likely to f nd a buyer much more quickly than it would have previously. Stories from their family and friends who have recently had success on the market will be supporting this.”

LOTS OF REASONS TO BE OPTIMISTIC

“As we head towards the second quarter of 2014 we are certainly very optimistic about the continuation of a very healthy market here on the Coast – with borrowing rates at the lowest levels in half a century we are seeing a massive amount of buyers that have currently been renting deciding to purchase now. “We are also f elding a huge amount of enquiry and selling a lot of property to health professionals and those associated with the Kawana Health Hub – not to mention the return of the investor buyers. Again, low interest rates and good economic drivers such as the hospital development are key factors here also. “There is currently a shortage of housing stock, particularly in the $300,000 to $500,000 range, and sales volumes are up signif cantly on the same period last year so the laws of supply and demand would suggest that prices must rise if this trend continues. That said, my feeling is that although we are in a much healthier market now, sellers need to have realistic expectations – we are not in a boom market.”

David Hedley-Ward, Next Property Group

SOUTHERN BUYERS ARE BACK

“In the f rst quarter of 2014 we’ve seen lots of new buyers active in the market. It seems as though many of the buyers who hadn’t sold six months ago are now ready to purchase, as they have sold their own homes. This has resulted in far higher levels of interest: open home numbers have doubled and we’re seeing far fewer days on market – in some cases homes are selling after only a few days. “More recently I’ve found that Sydney and Brisbane buyers are overtaking local interest, which is corresponding to higher activity at the top of the market – high-end general interest has increased by 30 per cent.”

Geoff Ohmsen, Platinum Properties

LOCALS LOVE NEW HOMES Developer Stockland has enjoyed a strong start to 2014 and says it continues to fast-track new land releases at its Sunshine Coast residential communities to keep up with demand. Stockland regional manager for the Sunshine Coast, Ben Simpson, says Brightwater at Mountain Creek, Birtinya at Oceanside Kawana and Bells Reach at Caloundra have all been experiencing sustained interest from buyers. “This has been one of the best starts to a year we have seen in quite a while with land releases selling out in record time,” Simpson says. “Demand is up across the board for both waterfront and standard blocks at Brightwater and Birtinya, and affordable home sites close to parkland at Bells Reach.” Simpson says Stockland’s commitment to delivering quality new-home options to suit the widest possible budget and lifestyle needs were key factors to buyer demand in 2014. He says low interest rates and the $15,000 Great Start Grant for first-home buyers are also continuing to boost confidence. “Buyers like the design, landscaping, parks and recreational areas in our communities plus the convenient locations close to major facilities and beaches. “Brightwater currently has rare canal-front blocks with direct ocean access, while Birtinya offers buyers an island lifestyle close to world-class medical facilities at Oceanside and the beach,’’ he says. “At Bells Reach, our exciting new Arbour Village – [which overlooks] native bushland and is located on the doorstep of the future Caloundra South – has just been launched, and new land releases are coming soon.”

NEWS & VIEWS Holbrook says. “Brian was the f rst person to live in 29 Glenlea Drive and stayed there with his family for 10 years. He then eventually sold the property at auction under the hammer in 1995 for $255,000.” The family moved to Tanawha for a tree change, but seven years later they drove past their old house and noticed it was for sale. “To cut a long story short they bought it at under the hammer at auction for $565,000,” Holbrook says. After another 12 years in the home, on March 22 Maureen sold it to a young local family for $760,000 – making this the third time the property has been sold under the hammer in that time.

A

local family’s property history came full circle last month when the home at 29 Glenlea Drive, Maroochy Waters sold at auction. Agent Jamie Holbrook from Property Today says while many long-term owners have strong connections to their homes, this seller was in the unique position of selling the property for the second time. “Maureen recently lost her partner Brian, who was a well-known real estate agent years ago and used to sell the waterfront properties within Maroochy Waters (River Breeze Estate) back in those days,”

NEW DEVELOPMENT

RARE OPPORTUNITY ON KAWANA ISLAND The Sunshine Coast’s location and lifestyle have drawn buyers from far and wide for decades, and perhaps the most desirable locations are waterfront homes, particularly those that boast direct ocean access. Anecdotal evidence from real estate agents tells us that in 2014 f rst-time buyers, investors and seasoned property purchasers are returning to the market. The Sunshine Coast lifestyle, matched with renewed investment in infrastructure and new developments, added to affordable prices, create the perfect opportunity for capital growth. And a small pocket of land on Kawana Island is gaining a lot of interest. The Promenade on Kawana Island was released to the market late last year. It is a gated community comprising nine waterfront blocks, all facing north-east, ready to accommodate a dream home. The exclusive project offers privacy, security and lifestyle in a central location. Each home will have a video intercom from the main gate to the house, plus access to a pontoon on the water, which boasts direct ocean access. The onsite manager at nearby Ocean Reach apartments is also on hand to keep an eye on the buyers’ homes. As well as offering a rare parcel of waterfront land with direct ocean access, the Promenade’s location is proving appealing to buyers, who see the value of a home located moments from the

Coast’s new hospital precinct, and with easy access to the motorway to Brisbane. The most recent buyer, a local who has a contract on lot nine, plans to build a home designed by award-winning architect Frank Raadschelders to match the magnif cent location. This buyer has recognised the acute shortage of waterfront properties with ocean access. And the Kawana Island lifestyle – which offers restaurants, parks and cycleways – is also a major drawcard. Ron Grabbe, from developer RGD Property Group, says, “There has been a vast increase of enquiry and sales of quality waterfront homes and as the last waterfront opportunities evaporate, values are expected to increase. “There have been four lots sold on the Promenade in the past few weeks and enquiry has been solid. Recent adjoining waterfront sites have been snapped up at nearly $100,000 more than at the Promenade, and this now indicates the Promenade represents great value for money. “I predict that by the time the Promenade is sold out there will be little to no waterfront opportunities left on Kawana Island,” he adds. With a waterfront location with direct ocean access, close to the beach and moments from the Coast’s highly anticipated hospital project, no doubt the few remaining blocks at the Promenade will be secured soon by savvy investors and

Artist’s impression owner-occupiers keen to secure a slice of the lifestyle and capital growth potential. “Lots are still available from $600,000,” says Grabbe. “The Promenade lots are probably the cheapest waterfront land available with direct ocean access. On top of that great value, all lots have the added features such as north-facing orientation, pontoons and gated security access to the waterfront lots.”

SEA PEARL SALES A DISPLAY OF CONFIDENCE Mooloolaba development Sea Pearl has gained much interest due to its location, design and rarity. Due to its prime front-row never-to-bebuilt-out location, and panoramic northerly ocean views, Sea Pearl is a world-class piece of blueribbon real estate. The developer reports that over the summer break there were four sales in Sea Pearl, which demonstrated renewed conf dence for these new luxury beachfront sky homes. But with winter approaching the developer is keen to clear the f nal three apartments and will consider all reasonable offers. The homes include two or three bedrooms, two or three bathrooms and a car space. Residents also have use of the cinema, lap pool, spa, steam room and gym. Sea Pearl’s marketing agent, G1 Property’s owner Simon Guilfoyle, says “Our developer’s clearance sale, at unbeatable prices, has resulted in strong sales in arguably the Sunshine Coast’s best mix-use residential building. I think we have set a record price for 2014 already for Mooloolaba, with one sale for $2.5 million to a Brisbane family who acknowledge this acquisition is their second on the beachfront Esplanade in the past 10 years. “I am thinking the appetite for our little beachside pocket (including Mooloolaba Esplanade, First Avenue, River Esplanade and Parkyn Parade) is gaining momentum with older resale unit stock diminishing fast and there’s only [ 64 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 17, 2014

two high-rise development sites remaining in the pocket.” Developer Shane Leadbetter adds, “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. This reinforces that development site supply in prime holiday tourist accommodation precincts such as Mooloolaba and Noosa are diminishing and reinforces how valuable these opportunities are for future and current owners.” Contact Simon Guilfoyle for residential enquiries on 0412 211 542 or Bob Stewart on 0423 422 480 for leasing opportunities.

ARIES [Mar 21-Apr 20] It’s time for your yearly stocktake on where you are going financially. Are you a spendthrift? With the new moon in your cash zone, you’re in the mood for a spontaneous spending spree. But remember – slow and steady wins the money race.

TAURUS [Apr 21-May 21] It’s the best week of the year to update your appearance, plus revise your plans for the future. With the new moon giving you a confidence boost, bulls are ready for anything! The moon’s in speedy Gemini from Wednesday until Saturday, but don’t let others hurry you.

GEMINI [May 22-Jun 21] Tuesday’s new moon encourages you to indulge in some delicious daydreaming, as you conjure up novel ways to be creative at home and work. Your intuition is firing so make sure you use it. Saturn pushes you to work hard on the weekend.

CANCER [Jun 22-Jul 23] An old friendship is being tested so think twice before you say something that’s controversial. A new friend inspires you to take a step forward. No side-stepping, crabs! Venus shifts into your career zone so it’s a terrific time to apply for a job.

LEO [Jul 24-Aug 23] The air is electric with career opportunities for lions. The question is – are you hungry enough? With the new moon lighting up your professional zone, now is the time to work out a strategy. Sunday is your pick of the week as Pluto boosts your cat charisma.

VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23] Long-distance travel is likely over the next 12 months, as the new moon activates your adventure zone. So start planning your itinerary now! On Wednesday, education, research and DIY projects are favoured as you roll up your sleeves and get to work.

LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23] Librans are incredibly creative creatures, but sometimes you are too easily side-tracked on the road to success. The new moon in Taurus encourages you to be more practical, as you turn your abstract dreams into concrete reality.

SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22] The new moon helps you view relationships from a fresh perspective. Are there bad habits you can banish, old grudges you can release, or outdated beliefs you can surrender? Sunday’s super sun/Pluto trine boosts your spirits.

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21] Speedy Sagittarius – don’t promise more than you can deliver, especially when it comes to work projects. Try to get the ratio right between being enthusiastic and being realistic. Tuesday’s new moon revs up your enthusiasm for a new sport or exercise routine.

CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20] Aim to get the balance right between work and leisure, as Tuesday’s new moon freshens up your fun zone. You could also initiate a relationship renaissance with a child, teenager or lover. Saturday’s Mercury/Saturn opposition increases your serious side.

AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19] Home is where the heart is this week as you solve a domestic problem or start to see a family member in a fascinating new light. Perhaps it’s time to let go of old grudges, as you build bridges with loved ones and let bygones be bygones?

PISCES [Feb 20-Mar 20] Neptune and the new moon urge you to find fresh ways to connect with those around you, whether at home, at work or within your local community. Sunday’s flowing moon/ Neptune/Jupiter aspects magnify your artistic and compassionate nature.

4 DAY FORECAST

Bells Beach is on and Saturday is looking good for waves with light west winds. Let’s hope one of the Aussies stands up and takes the crown! Locally, the Pa Bendall will be on and Moffats always has a great vibe, so get yourself down there. With the wind predicted to be westerly, everywhere should be good. This will help spread out the Easter crowd. For me? Scoring a bank to myself with a mate is always top of the list. Boogie borders seem to cluster together like bacteria. I swear they must have a lot of group hugs, given how close they get to each other. I remember a friend talking to one at Point Cartwright when he told him they look like turtles to sharks underneath – problem solved! No doubt they will be charging the Moffat reef and yes I have caught the odd small shark out there too!

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Small bream have been a nuisance from Bli Bli to the Maroochy Bar but size has improved with the full moon on the 15th, with fowl gut and yabbies the best bait around the snags. Catch whiting on worms and soldier crabs at Twin Waters and Goat Island. You’ll find flathead and trevally along the drop-offs at Cotton Tree. Mud crabs are still about, mainly in the deeper channels. SURF: Good-sized dart are from Marcoola right along the beaches to Kawana with pippies best. Beach worms are returning sand whiting in the low-tide gutters. Find tailor and bream at Pincushion with dawn and dusk best, using small pillies on ganged hooks. OFFSHORE: Murphy’s and 12 Mile have good reports of squire, sweetlip and maori cod on squid and cut baits. The Barwon Banks and Wide Caloundra are returning snapper, pearl perch and spanish mackeral. Black marlin are still around bait schools east of Coolum with live bait the only way to go. FRESHWATER: Lake Macdonald is returning bag limits of bass on trolled medium divers one day and live shrimps the next, so variety is required. Somerset has ample golden perch but it is a busy waterway with the holidays.
