OUR STORY My Weekly Preview is a high quality magazine delivering more of what matters to the Sunshine Coast. It features news, business, regular columnists, interesting facts ts and figures for that hot topic at the dinner table, motoring, socials, travel, health, lifestyles and more, as well as the most up-to-date information on local real estate. The magazine is 100% locally owned, which means we don’t just talk about being local, we are local, we live it every day. Delivered fresh every Friday. We’re also conscious of the environment at MWP – all our home delivered magazines are wrapped in degradable plastic.

here is no escaping the fact: on average one woman is killed through domestic violence in Australia each week. Child and family safety advocate Chris Turner, of Sunshine Coast welfare group SunnyKids, sums it up: “What we’ve ended up with is a community that is aware of domestic violence, a community that accepts it exists, but a community that still isn’t doing much about it.’’ We know the issue exists and yet, how much thought have we given to the people who suffer at the hand of family or domestic violence? In all honesty, I didn’t realise how naive I was. Not until I began researching the issue. That same week a friend – a successful, confident woman and mother – revealed she had been a victim for the past 10 years. Days later I met with yet another survivor, Robyn Lehmann-Rhodes. It hit home that this can happen to anyone. The facts and the raw, emotional stories rattled me. My aim was to write a story to educate the community on how to get help and offer support. A huge thank you to Robyn for speaking honestly about her experiences in a bid to raise awareness. This week’s magazine also features local news, property, travel and beauty. I hope you enjoy the read. Candice Holznagel Editor

RACE TO THE FINISH Little Mountain’s Mick Sullivan has been the CEO of the Sunshine Coast Turf Club for 17 years. He will retire on August 31 – but you’ll still see him at the races. FIRST JOB? ANZ Bank clerk, it was in Ouyen in Victoria. My father was a friend of the bank manager and it was who you knew in those days.

worrying about the national anthem being sung, rushing around and I forgot. I had to celebrate with my brother and it was a bit of a joke I didn’t back his horse.



Ensuring that the Sunshine Coast Turf Club remains efficient and profitable prior to my retirement. We’re getting ready for Oaks Day on June 2 and the Caloundra Cup on July 1.

The financial turnaround and success of the Sunshine Coast Turf Club. It was basically insolvent. I had to look at anything and everything we could do to save money. I had to make some very tough decisions. It’s a very competitive industry and it’s been tough, but it’s been very enjoyable and I’ve had the support of very good boards and staff.


YOUR FAMILY INCLUDES. . . Wife – Carmel; Daughters – Dani and Cara; Son-in-law – Daniel; Grandsons – Leo and Ned.

DO YOU HAVE A NICKNAME? Penguin. I had gout in both feet once. I shuffled into the pub and the boys called me penguin.

FIRST CAR? Holden Torana.

FAVOURITE BOOK? Moods – The Peter Moody Saga.

WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW? The form guide – always.

FAVOURITE SONG? Tonight’s the Night – Rod Stewart.

BEST ADVICE YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN? Be kind to your mum.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED ON THE SUNSHINE COAST? Seventeen years. I was originally from Victoria, I spent five years in Wagga Wagga as the CEO of the Murrumbidgee Turf Club. I’ve been involved in racing in some form nearly all my life. I started training horses when I was 12, then I worked for a bookmakers and now I’ve been a CEO for nearly 23 years.

06.indd 1

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON THE SUNSHINE COAST? Corbould Park Racecourse. And it’s always nice to go for a drive to the hinterland.

WHERE DO YOU TAKE VISITORS WHEN THEY COME TO THE COAST? Alfie’s Mooo Char Bar and Domenicos on Kings.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ON THE COAST WHAT WOULD IT BE? Public transport. We need better service all round, an improved bus service and much better rail service. It’s a long way to go to Landsborough to catch a train and nowadays, the traffic on weekends can be horrific to and from Brisbane travelling here. You’ve only got to stand out and watch Caloundra Road on a Friday afternoon.

BEST DAY IN YOUR LIFE? The day I met my wife. We met at Daisy’s Hotel in Ringwood on the Friday and I flew to London on the Sunday. We wrote to each other while I was away. We’d never been out on a date, but she picked me up at the airport and we’ve been together ever since. We’ll celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary on July 23 and I’ll be 65 on July 27.

CAN YOU NOMINATE A DAY IN YOUR LIFE THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A TURNING POINT? The phone call from Sunshine Coast Turf Club requesting I apply for the position of CEO in December 1999. We used to come here on holidays and never thought we’d be moving here.

YOUR GREATEST REGRET? Not backing my brother’s horse Amexed, who won the Caloundra Cup last year. I was busy

YOU ARE HAPPIEST WHEN? Relaxing with family and friends having an ice-cold beer.

WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN YOU RETIRE? Well I’m only five minutes from the Turf Club and I can’t see myself sitting around on a Sunday doing nothing. I’d also like to see a bit of Australia. I’m looking forward to sitting back and watching the new CEO John Miller continue on with the success of the club. The Sunshine Coast is continuing to expand and we’ve spent a lot of money here over the last couple of years to upgrade the facility to make it the best we can, so the place is in very good shape.

ADVICE TO YOUR 18-YEAR-OLD SELF? Look after yourself health-wise and embrace opportunities when they arise.

TEA OR COFFEE? Tea, no milk.

NRL OR AFL? Both – Broncos and Collingwood.

Every year in Australia, more than 300,000 women experience violence – often sexual violence – from someone other than a partner.

WORD OF THE WEEK Alexithymia An inability to describe or express thoughts and emotions.

DID YOU KNOW? Korea has implemented 28 state-sanctioned haircuts for its people. Hard to believe, I know. Though, if you were searching for the silver lining, I guess it would reduce the time spent procrastinating over cuts and colours…

There’s never been a better time to live and work on the Sunshine Coast, and it’s only going to get brighter. We’ve started building the city of the future in Maroochydore, and it’s got Australia watching. Let’s show them what we can do.

ENDING OUR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE EPIDEMIC One in four Australian women will experience physical or sexual violence by their partner – more than half of these victims have children. May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention month, a time to campaign for change. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.


“Today, police would have dealt with, on average, 350 domestic violence matters” Rosie Batty with son Luke

10 My Weekly Preview | May 26, 2017

10.indd 1

leven-year-old Luke Batty was as cute as a button. His wide, blue eyes and sun-kissed, freckled face were not all that different from other boys his age. And yet, it’s his face that has become etched in the minds of millions of Australians. Three years ago, this young cricket fan, who would “always love’’ his mum, was bludgeoned to death at the hands of his father, Greg Anderson. Luke had just finished practice at the Tyabb cricket oval in Victoria when his father committed the unthinkable crime. Anderson was shot by police and later died in hospital. This innocent child, and his mother Rosie, had suffered from years of family violence. Rosie Batty’s heartbreaking story brought the issue of domestic violence into the public spotlight – something that was well overdue. Since that day, Batty, who was named Australian of the Year in 2015, has continuously campaigned against family violence. She has fought for improved awareness and government funding. “If Luke hadn’t died in such an extreme way, I’d just be one of those ‘family violence people’ no one listens to,’’ she has said. “Family violence may happen behind closed doors but it needs to be brought out from these shadows and into broad daylight.’’ According to campaign group White Ribbon Australia, one in four Australian children are exposed to family violence. An Australian Government Trends and Issues in Crime and Criminal Justice report reveals that young victims of domestic violence have previously been labelled as the ‘silent, forgotten, unintended and invisible’ sufferers. Thankfully, awareness is growing. Batty’s strength to speak out has opened the door for thousands of mothers including the Sunshine Coast’s own anti-violence campaigner, Robyn Lehmann-Rhodes. “In my day (1995), there was no support. I had no money. He was going to kill me if I left. I had no backup. No one knew.’’ Lehmann-Rhodes is a crusader. A strongly-spoken woman who looks you square in the eye with confidence. She is living proof that people of all ages, backgrounds and personalities, can suffer at the hands of their partners. She is also proof that there is a way out. But why did it take 12 years for her to leave her husband? “I was in denial myself. It’s really difficult to say. I rang [a] women’s helpline twice,’’ Lehmann-Rhodes tells My Weekly Preview. “He’d follow me around the property with a shovel in his hand. I felt shame,

embarrassment. People say ‘why doesn’t she leave?’. The victim is saying that too. It’s not that easy to leave. “He told me he’d take the kids off me. He told me he’d kill me if I left. I didn’t go to anyone else because I didn’t want to put them in harm’s way. He was very powerful when I was with him. Once I left, I started to regain my own power. It’s like getting stronger every day.’’ In the end it was the survival and safety of her two children that drove LehmannRhodes to escape. It was 1995, the day before Father’s Day. “I got in the car and drove. It was for the kids. Every decision I made was for the kids. They were terrified of him. “The abuse had started pretty much as soon as we were married. He didn’t physically abuse me at first. However, there was the odd pushing around. I honestly thought that was OK. “We had two children… he would be quite violent and abusive towards them.

Chris Turner – SunnyKids CEO I would try and distract him from them and cop more myself. “It got worse and worse. I didn’t know what my favourite food was, my favourite colour, my favourite music. He made every decision for me. I was a shell. I didn’t exist.’’ After finding the strength to leave, the family spent a week living in a women’s shelter. The Domestic and family violence and homelessness 2011–12 to 2013–14 report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) shows that more than one-third of adults and children seeking help from homelessness services did so as a result of domestic and family violence. Around 520,000 Australians accessed homelessness services in that three-year period with 187,000 of those due to domestic and family violence. There is no escaping the facts. They are startling and confronting. Australian police deal with 5000 domestic violence matters on average every week – that’s one every two minutes. So far

23/05/2017 11:36:21 AM

COVER STORY today, police would have dealt with around 350 cases. A recent report from the AIHW revealed that nearly 6500 women and girls were hospitalised as a result of assault in Australia during 2013–14. The perpetrator was usually a partner or spouse. Injuries to the head were the most common. The Queensland Police Service’s Annual Statistical Review 2015/16 shows the number of domestic and family violence applications on the Sunshine Coast increased from 1368 to 1660 in 12 months. Across the April Easter long weekend, the Sunshine Coast Vulnerable Persons Unit reported 56 incidents in the region. It was the worst spate of incidents since the unit opened in September. Bringing the issue out from behind closed doors is one step in combatting what has been labelled an ‘epidemic’. In October 2016, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull launched the Third Action Plan of The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010–2022. The plan aims to substantially reduce the violence in Australia by driving generational change in six key areas including changing attitudes and behaviours and offering support. Family welfare group SunnyKids’ founder and CEO Chris Turner agrees educating the younger generation is one step. This week the Sunshine Coast charity launched the children’s book, The Good Man Project, in hopes it will be the catalyst for change. The book, written by Sunshine Coast author Angela Bueti, will be distributed into all primary schools across the nation. Turner says another step is community ownership and overcoming ignorance. “I think, having worked in this sector for 14 years, we’ve come a very long way. We could not speak about domestic violence in 2003, no one wanted to listen,’’ Turner tells My Weekly Preview. “I’d say the turning point was when we got an articulate, educated, attractive victim in Rosie Batty. (She) caught our attention – someone the media, government and community couldn’t ignore. “What we’ve ended up with is a

MAN UP Are you an abuser? Did you know that domestic violence isn’t restricted to the physical kind? Violence is an act that hurts another person. It may be physical, psychological, sexual, financial control, ignoring the needs or using technology such as emails or social media to control another person. If you’ve ever felt or said any of the following, seek help before it’s too late from DV Connect, your local police or Men’s Line 1300 78 99 78. Remember, when violently angry, always walk away from the scene: • I can’t control my anger • When we argue, I shout and frighten my partner • I have a few drinks and things just get a bit out of hand • I’ve never hit her. It was just a little push. community that is aware of domestic violence, a community that accepts it exists but a community that still isn’t doing much about it.’’ One of the major reasons for this, Turner says, is that people don’t know what to do or don’t want to get involved. “We can help people learn what to do. We can help people realise that it could be their loved one. If we don’t intervene today that person could move on to our own child next. The only way to stop this is for us, as a

community, to stop saying it’s OK. “If you think it’s DV, it probably is. If you are worried about it right now, ring the police. If you’re not, ring the support service. They will listen to what you’re worried about and support you to work out what you need to do. Things like, assuming they are not in immediate danger, getting alongside that person and affirming them, encouraging them, letting them know that you are there for them.’’ In late 2015, SunnyKids joined forces with the University of the Sunshine Coast to host a Domestic and Family Violence Symposium. The Make It Stop conference resulted in the drafting of a high-level plan for the region outlining the need for more education and more highly-engaged police. “We’ve really got that now,’’ Turner says. “The Highly Vulnerable Person Unit is effective.” Prior to the existence of the unit, 50 per cent of the referrals police made to support services on behalf of the victims were declined by the victim. There was little follow up. Now, teams continue to work with the victim, which subsequently results in 75 per cent accepting help from support services. “Thirty per cent of the answer is that. Seventy per cent of the answer is in what happens before,’’ Turner adds. “That 70 per cent is for us [the community]. You don’t have to go knock on the door… get some assistance. It’s about men confronting other men, women confronting women. “We used to think it was OK to smoke in restaurants or in aeroplanes. If someone did that now, they’d be asked to leave. That’s what we want. We want domestic violence to be unacceptable.” For Lehmann-Rhodes the message she has for other victims is this: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and I’m now in control of my life. I am a strong woman, I’m independent, happily married and my children are happy and healthy. They are very respectable and caring adults. There is help out there.”

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and I’m now in control of my life” Robyn Lehmann-Rhodes

THE STATS • Australian police deal with 5000 domestic violence matters on average every week. That’s one every two minutes. • On average at least one woman a week is killed by a partner or former partner in Australia. • One in three Australian women has experienced physical violence since the age of 15. • Women are at least three times more likely than men to experience violence from an intimate partner. • Women are five times more likely than men to require medical attention or hospitalisation as a result of intimate partner violence, and five times more likely to report fearing for their lives. • The cost of violence against women and their children in Australia as reported by KPMG found the total cost of domestic violence Australia to be as much as $22 billion in 2015–16. • If no further action is taken this figure is predicted to rise to $323.4 billion over a 30 year period.

Grow Coastal has partnered with crowdfunding platform Pozible, giving the foodpreneurs a chance to test the market and raise the crucial funds they need to expand. The businesses are offering a range of rewards to the public for supporting the campaign.

NO NOOSA HOLIDAY FOR BUSTED CREDIT CARD CRIMINALS Police are reminding Sunshine Coast residents to be extra vigilant with checking their credit card statements following the arrest of a Canadian national for fraud offences. A 42-year-old New South Wales man noticed some discrepancies on his statement including an online accommodation booking for a Noosa resort. The man notified his bank and also the Hastings Street resort. On May 20, the hotel notified police when four men attended the accommodation to check in. Sunshine Coast District Officer in-Charge Detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards said the offence served as a timely reminder to carefully monitor credit cards statements. You can report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 1800 333 000.

Two Sunshine Coast companies have received a financial boost following the Federal Government’s $200 billion commitment to Defence. Caloundra aviation company Helimods was awarded a $154,000 contract to manufacture 14 aircraft cabin wet decks for the Navy’s MH-60R Seahawk Romeo helicopters. Fellow Caloundra company, Praesidium Global, is designing and manufacturing unmanned ground vehicles to get wounded soldiers to safety. The company has now entered into a $1.3 million contract with Defence to supply the vehicles to the Army.

GRAMMAR TOP SCHOOL FOR POOL LIFE SAVING Sunshine Coast Grammar School has taken out the 2017 Queensland Pool Life Saving competition. Students from Years 2 to 11 competed against teams from Brisbane and Toowoomba to secure the title. Teacher and coach Jeannie Baxter-Reid is no stranger to pool life saving. With more than 40 years’ experience she was recognised in 2016 by Queen Elizabeth II for her outstanding contribution to the service. “Our pool life saving team are great ambassadors. Each student worked tirelessly in the individual and team events which was evident by their excellent display of skills and determination in the competition,’’ she said.

DIVING DEEP TO BOOST SUSTAINABLE BIKINI BUSINESS Local designer Steph Gabriel is one of 30 entrepreneurs hoping to learn business secrets from Sir Richard Branson. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.



arlier this year, OceanZen Bikini founder Steph Gabriel told her best friend that she wanted to meet Sir Richard Branson and she wanted Leonardo Di Caprio to invest in her sustainable swimwear business. Two months later, the Alexandra Headland resident was extended an exclusive invitation to attend Sir Richard Branson’s Entrepreneur Program on Necker Island and “freakishly” landed a last-minute place in the ING Bank Dreamstarter Campaign for the month of May to help make it possible for her to attend. The Dreamstarter Campaign is a crowdfunding initiative that is similar to Kickstarter, only it is dedicated to ethical business, something OceanZen is the very embodiment of. The business removes harmful plastic bottles and fishing nets from the ocean and transforms them into fashion-forward bikinis. ING Bank will donate $15,000 to OceanZen’s campaign if Gabriel can raise $40,000 in 30 days. The $40,000 will allow OceanZen to get the next swimwear collection off the ground, produce a sustainable eco-water bottle and get Gabriel to Branson’s Entrepreneurial Program. “It is an all-or-nothing situation,” Gabriel says. “I am a strong believer in you attract the things that you want in life and this is really exclusive and there is no application process for it. They choose 30 entrepreneurs from around the world, so it is pretty amazing to be considered.

“Who knows, maybe Leo is just around the corner too.” Gabriel founded OceanZen Bikini after seeing firsthand how plastic is impacting the oceans and has been involved with some incredible research projects around the world before going on to gain a degree in Environmental Marine Science at the University of the Sunshine Coast. The 27-year-old now splits her time between continuing her environmental awareness and conservation work with the successful bikini brand. Gabriel says she is still pinching herself that she has been given an opportunity to connect with Branson, one of her business idols. “Branson is a very disruptive entrepreneur, he breaks all the rules and that has made him the success that he is today. This is how I like to see myself, with OceanZen breaking the rules, swimwear is not usually made from fishing nets from the ocean,” she says. “Technology is allowing us to regenerate things that would otherwise be thrown out, so many brands are shifting towards sustainability and I am so happy to be a part of that movement.” It is estimated that eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans every year.

Gabriel is hoping people will see the potential of her sustainable business and get on board her campaign by donating what they can, or choosing a supporter package from by 10am on May 31.

The smart bra, which comes in both a front-zip style or the more traditional clasp-back, includes four skin-friendly fabric sensors that track your breathing and heart rate variability. The Gem is the mind behind Vitali. It sits nicely inside the smart bra and communicates with the sensors. It understands patterns and triggers to give real-time feedback via gentle taps when it detects indicators of stress.

FACEBOOK TO COMBAT FAKE NEWS Facebook is beginning an international marketing campaign to warn users about fake news. The ads will advise Facebook users to “be sceptical of headlines” and check other reports on the same subject before believing a story. The social media giant has been heavily criticised for its handling of fake news content. Facebook claims it has already removed thousands of fake accounts. Simon Milner, the tech firm’s director of policy in the UK, says people want to see accurate information on Facebook. “We have developed new ways to identify and remove fake accounts that might be spreading false news so that we get to the root of the problem.” The new advertisements are an extension of the online notice that first appeared on news feeds last month, which came after founder Mark Zuckerberg was forced to defend the site after the US election amid claims fake news stories in support of Donald Trump could have aided his victory. -AAP

Rue Saint-Paul is a popular street in Old Montreal


Experience a little bit of France in Montreal. WORDS: Sigal Ratner-Arias, AAP.


e were looking for a fun, family holiday – one where we could savour a bit of a different culture. We decided to head for Montreal. I had visited once before and always wanted to go back. Our two eldest sons (in years six and seven) are both learning French in school, which made it an easy decision, and our kindergartner was on board too. Here are a few highlights of our trip:

THE BOTANICAL GARDEN AND INSECTARIUM: With its Chinese, Japanese and First Nation gardens, arboretum and greenhouses, the Botanical Garden is a popular stop. Even on a rainy day, you can visit creatures – alive and dead – at the Insectarium. The kids were grossed out but loved it. THE SCIENCE CENTRE: A highlight for the kids. From working together to solve a crime at the CSI: The Experience exhibit (on

until September 4) to hands-on activities at the permanent exhibitions and 3D IMAX movies, the Science Centre is a fun place. Go early to make the most of it and then take the rest of the day to shop, stroll and eat in Old Montreal. OLD MONTREAL: Old Montreal (Vieux Montreal) is the oldest part of the city, with some remnants dating back to New France. It’s charming and full of life, with restaurants, shops, cafes and art galleries along the Rue de la Commune and beyond. A few places to visit are Place Jacques-Cartier and Place d’Armes, surrounded by buildings that include the Notre-Dame basilica. DINNER AND LIVE JAZZ: We had a memorable dinner at Jardin Nelson, located at Place Jacques-Cartier, where we sat in a beautiful courtyard surrounded by old stone buildings listening to live jazz. The highlight of our delicious meal was an amazing dessert, a traditional Quebecois treat with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup called pouding chômeur. QUEBEC CITY: The province’s capital, is a three-hour drive from Montreal and a worthy side trip. Don’t miss the iconic landmark Chateau Frontenac and the Terrasse Dufferin that wraps around it. With cannons spread along the walkway, the terrace offers beautiful views of the Saint Lawrence River. The European-looking streets around boast restaurants, cafes, little

The Montreal Botanical Garden is considered to be one of the most important in the world shops and boutiques. Other attractions include a waterfall and Montmorency Falls. SEASONAL ATTRACTIONS: For those visiting in late winter and early spring, consider a stop at a traditional Montreal maple sugar shack called Erabliere Charbonneau. We had a fabulous all you-can-eat lunch of pea soup, coleslaw, baked omelette, maple sausages, baked beans, meatball stew, served with a bottle of maple syrup and desserts that included buckwheat pancakes, maple taffy on snow and my favourite, sugar pie.

MOZZARELLA, HALOUMI AND ALL THAT JAZZ MasterChef judge George Calombaris recently declared Trevor Hart’s handmade haloumi the best in Australia. MWP met the man behind the cheese that’s charmed top chefs from Noosa to Melbourne at his home-based cheeserie to watch the maestro in action. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


revor Hart resembles a wizard concocting a spell as he stirs buffalo milk curds in a large stainless steel bowl of hot water. He can already tell it’s going to be a good mozzarella by the way the curds are beginning to stick as they swirl around each other, magically morphing into a mass of soft, fresh, delectable cheese. He pulls and stretches it out to the length of his arm and admires it like a proud father. “Mozzarella is a transformational cheese,” he says. “That stretch – it’s a rare and beautiful thing. The moment between being a curd and a cheese is really small. I judge this by the glow on it,” he says, holding up a shining white ball to the light. “You could almost call it zen and the art of mozzarella making.” But he’s not stopping there. Today the award-winning Maleny cheesemaker – whose Cedar Street Cheeserie buffalo haloumi was declared Australia’s best haloumi by MasterChef judge George Calombaris on May 7 – is making 50 balls of burrata for the Noosa Food and Wine Festival. This means strong coffee, loud jazz and eight hours of hard yakka in the cheeserie beneath his Maleny cottage, where he’s working with assistant Tim Dashiell, a fellow musician. “Burrata is the holy grail of cheese,” Hart says. “It’s highpressure; we’re under the pump. It will fail if I don’t work fast, if I don’t get every stage of the process exactly right. You have to be attentive every step of the way. When you go to stretch it, you have a small window of time when the acidity is at the right spot. Too acidic and you can’t stretch it, not enough acid and it just falls to bits.” Hart deftly works the balls of mozzarella into the shape of a calla lily with a deep well, into which Dahshiell pours buffalo cream, before Hart ties it off underneath the water, creating a discreet seam at the back. “I love the buffalo milk,” Hart says. “The way it tastes and behaves, and the cream is insane. I started out buying 20 litres a week when I began making cheese about 10 years ago, and this week I ordered 400 litres.” The buffalo milk hails from Maleny dairy farmers Mal and Margaret Thompson and it’s the farm-fresh quality of the milk that’s one of the keys to Hart’s success. Another key is his creative talent, which saw him become a jazz musician and composer at an early age. He plays trumpet in the well-known Trevor Hart Quartet and on a Saturday morning in Maleny, you might catch him busking in the street with other seasoned musos, while his daughters Daphne, 12 and Pearl, 10 watch on. “It’s a challenge doing the busking because I haven’t got a stage between me and the audience,” he says. “It’s great because sometimes people are dancing in the street. It’s that

type of music, that early jazz and ragtime really suits the whole street thing.” Hart had a steady job as a high school music teacher when he decided to take a risk and follow his fascination for handmade artisan cheese, a passion that has seen him win a Churchill Fellowship to explore traditional cheesemaking in Europe, become a Slow Food ambassador and win two Delicious magazine awards. It was a creative yearning his partner, ceramicist Shannon Garson, fully understood and Pearl and Daphne have gained much from – least of all brownie points with friends. “Kids come around in summer and say, ‘we want haloumi and watermelon’,” Hart says proudly. “One of Daphne’s friends requested some haloumi for her birthday present.” Hart’s daughters accompany him to Noosa Farmers’ Market, the only commercial outlet for the public to buy Hart’s cheese other than Maleny IGA, the only Australian supermarket to stock it. Owner Rob Outridge says people drive up from Brisbane on the hunt for it, while the rest goes to restaurants in

Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. While Daphne and Pearl are keen to eat the cheese, they’re not fussed on making it. “They want to make pottery with Shannon,” he says. “I’m just the lowly cheesemaker in this household. “I just wanted to try something new – I wanted a challenge,” he says, of his decision to quit his day job 10 years ago and hang out with musos making cheese. “I love a challenge. Living here with three girls, that’s a challenge! “Sure, it was an incredible learning curve but I like a good project. It focuses my scattered mind. I always want to make something the best I can and try new things. To try to do burrata, to get this right, took me four or five years, but I have got it right now.” While Hart’s cheeses have captured the attention of the nation’s top chefs, creating huge demand for his product, it wasn’t always that way. “In the beginning I faced a lot of resistance from people in markets,” he says. “Everybody thought a cheese had to be like cheddar, not fresh. It took me about two years to start to convince people that fresh cheeses are legitimate cheeses. I remember standing at markets and selling almost nothing for about a year.” As a self-taught cheesemaker, he’s learnt the hard way – by trial and error. “I once lost about 150 litres and I got very upset,” he says. “I went next door to bewail my fate to Shannon and she said it is a living thing and you must appreciate it is a living thing. Sometimes living things just don’t work out and this is the nature of what you do. She was right. It was deeply upsetting, not so much the loss of the milk, but the failure. “I like that it’s like music in that you never stop learning. You learn subtle things all the time. I have the ability to focus my mind and I think that comes from being a professional musician. I was a composer and had to compose to deadlines, so I learnt to focus my mind. I’m a failed lazy person, I’d love to be lazy but it’s just not within me.”

Sami Muirhead believes she earned the right to be called Mum, Mama or Mummy and her cheeky toddler will never convince her otherwise.

Bill Darby says political point scoring and inflated egos are hampering the effective promotion of tourism on the Sunshine Coast.


y two-year-old has taken to calling me Sami. I do not like it. The morning starts with him coming up to my bed and shouting in a very loud voice at about 5am: “Sami! Wake up! Me needs muppin!” Muppin is in fact muffin and is actually a crumpet in our household. Honey on toasted crumpets is the highlight of my winter mornings. The toddler thinks he is a dictator and also is confident he and I are on a first name basis. I have explained to him I am ‘Mummy’, ‘Mama’ or even ‘Mum’ but I am not ‘Sami’. He lost the right to call me my actual name when I gave up wine and blue cheese for nine months when I was pregnant with him. This makes him more determined to call me by my first name. He thinks it is hilarious to watch me turn red with frustration as a very disturbed look crosses my brow. The world is not right when my kid is calling me by my first name. My friend warns me it is a weapon kids use in a ruthless bid to wound our parental hearts. His son is 16 and has started calling him by his first name, as the teenager declared he is now an adult and it would be childish to call his father any name other than that. My friend is gutted and is hoping it is just

a phase. My hurt buddy pointed out to me that his son stole his heart when his tiny boy looked up into his eyes and gurgled, ‘Dada’ for the first time. It was the first word he ever spoke and it made him feel as if he was the world to his son. A few years went by and his son started calling him ‘Dad’. This is what seven-yearolds do. Fast-forward to the teenage years and his son became embarrassed to kiss him in public and switched to ‘dude’. I will die if my children ever ‘dude’ me. A conversation apparently goes something along the lines of, “Hey, dude. Do you reckon you can spot me 20 bucks, mate?”. So this is a message to my son with his chubby thighs and dirty hands. Please, just call me Mum. From the minute I knew I was pregnant with you I loved you fiercely and protectively. Every time you scream out ‘Mummy’ when you scrape your knee, it melts my heart. And as you grow up it is still going to be really nice to hear the word ‘mum’ because no matter how old you are, how successful you are, trust me – you only have one mum and one dad who love you more than you will ever know. And if you ever, ever ‘dude’ me I can promise you that you will never score $20 and you will more than likely be grounded.

he announcements in the recent Federal Budget brought mixed reviews. The mayor was clearly dissatisfied with the announcements made by Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison and he was quick to point the finger. In a nutshell, promises fell short of the council’s expectations for infrastructure expenditure – $530 million in prioritised funding for the Bruce Highway wasn’t good enough and the $250,000 study into an undersea cable was again, too little too late. On the other hand, our parliamentarians Ted O’Brien and Andrew Wallace were rapt with the Budget outcome. As a result of public criticism from the mayor, the reactions from our local pollies confirm the relationship is deteriorating. Collaboration and teamwork has made way for political point scoring and relationships seem to be sinking to their lowest ebb. Does anyone believe our MPs sit on their backsides all day? Of course not. Frankly, they work harder and longer hours than most of us. As lowly backbenchers they have very little say on the Budget, yet they juggle competing priorities and lobby in Canberra to achieve the best outcomes they can. A systemic problem in our region is that local political egos have stripped away any semblance of humility and good grace. The self-congratulatory rhetoric from the council is getting tiring and its criticism of the state and federal government is getting worse. For the record, generally speaking our

Sunshine Coast councillors and council staff do a great job. Unlike the countless volunteers out there, it’s also a job they get very well paid to do. Just saying. Equally disappointing was advice I received this week that the council is working to undermine the independence of our tourism body, Visit Sunshine Coast (VSC). The region’s official tourism organisation receives most of its funding from a tourism levy raised through local rates. A board was elected in 2012 to independently govern VSC and grow our regional tourism economy, but it appears the council is pulling all the strings. Controversy has surrounded VSC since Noosa gained its independence. While funding for VSC comes almost exclusively from the Sunshine Coast, VSC promotes Noosa and Gympie Shires with gusto. Bringing further suspicion to the effectiveness of VSC is its reluctance to publish comparable tourism performance statistics for sub-regional areas such as Coolum, Mooloolaba and Caloundra. While Noosa and Gympie crow about their unprecedented growth, other tourism hubs on the Sunshine Coast are left guessing. I want to live in a community that works together to be a better place. It concerns me that with our inherent parochialism and lack of transparency, we have a long way to go. At the end of the day, we are all very small fish in a very big pond. The sooner some of our public servants realise that, the better.

minerals. Inflammation will lead to deficiency due to a lack of absorption and will have a major influence on your inability to break the cycle of low energy, low mood, and disease processes. Stress reducing techniques and positive mindset, while very important to maintain a balanced state, are not able to fill deficiencies when it has become too late. However, they are important in breaking the cycle and maintaining the longevity of your wellness. A combination of both positive mindset techniques and nutritional replenishment and supplementation will always give a more effective and speedy recovery and is essential to restore wellness.

eing well doesn’t always go to plan, leaving you to decide whether to seek advice and support. For some people, a highly stressful life will cause symptoms of mood disorders or disease and may be triggered by the emotional situation, which then contributes further to either their physical or mental health. For more patients, these same feelings or conditions come on for no apparent reason and are not stress induced.

WHITE WINE IDENTIFIED AS MAJOR ROSACEA TRIGGER Alcohol is not good for the skin. This is the news coming out of the US. Too much of the liquor negatively affects the natural glow of the skin via dehydration. It also lowers protective antioxidant levels and dilates blood vessels. Until recently, much of the blame for rosacea flare-ups was laid at the door of red wine. Now, the new study from the American Academy of Dermatology says white wine is the major culprit. And, they’ve got the data to prove it – 82,000 women were tracked for 14 years. Researchers found that women who drink as little as a couple of glasses of white wine per month had a 14 per cent increased risk of developing rosacea. Five glasses of white wine a month accelerated the likelihood to 49 per cent. Surprisingly, red wine drinkers did not suffer from these issues at all.

This week has been a special one for council with the launch of COAST, a new publication that features a tasting plate of the diverse range of artistic and cultural events that we are hosting in our region. We are building a healthy, smart and creative Sunshine Coast and this vibrant 48-page publication showcases just some of the diverse array of artistic and cultural events that are being presented or supported by Sunshine Coast Council. With everything from music, arts and literature to performance, dance and workshops, there is definitely something that will appeal to everyone. I encourage everyone to explore the fantastic programs that are managed, hosted or supported by council and are just waiting to be experienced with family, friends and visitors. We are blessed with some outstanding performance venues, galleries, libraries and museums. You can pick up a copy of edition one of COAST at Lake Kawana Community Centre, The Events Centre, Caloundra Regional Gallery, council’s libraries and customer contact centres, Visitor Information Centres, cafes and a range of other locations.

A PLAN FOR OUR RESERVES The ecological values of the Sunshine Coast’s 547 environmental reserves will be protected and ecosystems restored following the adoption of the first comprehensive plan to manage more than 6000 hectares of native habitat. Council’s reserve network includes properties with high ecological and natural amenity values. Properties range from small bushland areas dotted throughout the urban landscape to large ‘jewels in the crown’ which have been purchased under the Environmental Levy Acquisition Program, along with three environmental visitor and education centres and 131 kilometres of public trails. Our reserves are important community assets that contribute significantly to our region’s natural advantage and the provision of services for a healthy, smart and creative community.

Flawless makeup application is all about the brushes, but good brushes don’t usually come cheap, so we think the Elf Silver 11-Piece Brush Collection is good value at $80, from Kmart or It includes:

• Eyeshadow ‘C’ Brush • Complexion Brush • Small Angled Brush • Blending Brush • Fan Brush • Powder Brush

If you want smooth, manageable, frizz-free hair without the need to use a hair straightener every day, try a keratin treatment. Here’s what you need to know: • Keratin is a protein in your hair that is lost with age and overuse of products. • Keratin treatments fill in the porosity of your hair, reducing frizz and breakage, increasing shine and making styling easier. • After a keratin treatment you can’t wash your hair or tie it back for 48 hours. • The term ‘keratin treatment’ actually encompasses a range of formulas with differing results. • If you want to maintain more body and curl, go for a formaldehyde-free

• Small Precision Brush • Crease Brush • Flawless Concealer Brush • Blush Brush • Eyebrow Duo Brush • Water-Resistant Case

formula that uses glyoxylic acid, keratin, and silk proteins. • Keep in mind that formaldehydefree keratin treatments don’t contain the compound that straightens curly hair, they simply coat the hair in a film that smooths the hair. • If you want a more significant straightening effect that eliminates the need to use a straightener at home, you’ll probably need a keratin treatment that uses formaldehyde in conjunction with straightening irons. • If opting for a formaldehyde-based keratin treatment, make sure the salon is well ventilated with fans or special vents and the toxic chemicals are circulated away from your eyes and mouth during the treatment.

SIGNS REMAIN OF AN OLD-SCHOOL CRAFTSMAN Ron Drane left his mark on the Sunshine Coast, quite literally. He was the old school of signwriter who carried his brushes and paint pots from Caloundra to Noosa; Beerburrum to Brooloo, writes Dot Whittington.

THIS MONTH IN HISTORY The Culgoa was wrecked on the Noosa Bar on May 13, 1891. She had sailed from her wharf at Tewantin about mid-morning loaded with timber and grounded on the river flats approaching the Noosa Bar. The wreck was sold at auction on June 8. The engines were removed and used in a sawmill at Brooloo in the Mary Valley until about 1960. The scattered remains of the Culgoa rest somewhere in the sands of the Noosa River.

The sign shed at Parklands; and Ron is hoisted by a crane over the cliff at Cullens in Nambour


on Drane arrived on the North Coast in 1957, having bought the signwriting business of Simon Bracegirdle right beside the Bruce Highway at Parklands, north of Nambour. The burnt remains of a big, old gum tree stood at the front and it was from this that Ron hung his shingle, describing his address as “behind the black stump”. As it was on the main highway north, his Ron Drane Signs shed, along with his Kombi van, became something of a landmark. His trademarks were his maulstick and a canvas beret he always wore not so much for its eccentricity, as for its usefulness in wiping out a stray chalk line. In the early years, he was the only craftsman signwriter serving the region. He wrote signs for national paint, petrol and ice-cream companies as well as for many old family businesses. It was the days before computer lettering and he would craft perfectly formed letters – always priding himself that he could paint the perfect S, any size – every

time and on every surface. It was all brushwork, from the large hoardings announcing the development sites of major projects from Noosa to Caloundra, to the fine stripes on the little trains that arrived at the Big Pineapple. Honour boards in bowls and golf clubs around the Coast still carry the delicate gold-leaf lettering he painstakingly applied. A gifted artist, he also annually painted the backdrops for the fruit exhibits at the Nambour Show and for the floats in the Warana procession. During these busy times he would employ another artist, Vern Lyle, to help him. Ron would pick Vern up from the Club Hotel in Nambour and together they would create landscapes, street scenes and artwork for exhibits. He painted the directional signage for the new Maroochy Airport in 1961, for the nearby Suncoast development and then created and erected the big hoarding, complete with an artist’s impression, in the beachfront wallum announcing that on this site, Surfair Hotel was to be built.

At election time, his sign shop would be cleaned up and booths installed for voters to come in and make their mark. In the lead-up to the polls, Ron would chat with Frank Nicklin, Dave Low or Eddie De Vere and their contenders about their chances. Many of their how-to-vote cards later ended up with the reverse side covered in scribblings of ideas for signs and artwork. Ron became a well-known figure around Nambour, not just for his signs, but also for his active involvement in a number of community organisations including Scouts and the Nambour Civic Hall Committee. His work for these groups was gladly given. Ron was briefly remembered with the naming of Drane Court at Mons in 1994, but four years later, a Maroochy Shire councillor agreed with a disgruntled resident that it wasn’t a good name to attract potential home buyers (even though there is a Drane Street in the upmarket Brisbane suburb of Clayfield) and without further consultation it was changed to Forest View Court. Nevertheless, he will not be forgotten. Ron was 91 when he died at Sundale in Nambour. He would have celebrated his 108th birthday this week. I know his story well because he was my Dad.

The Ocean View Hotel, Mapleton, 1920

DID YOU KNOW? • David Williams built Mapleton’s first four-roomed house with pit sawn timber and opened it in 1895 with music and dancing. Settlers rode in from miles around – Montville, Obi Obi and Highworth – to attend. The party lasted all night and guests left the next morning. It was a much talked about event for many years after. The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast will be celebrated on August 1, 2017. In the lead-up to the occasion, My Weekly Preview will each week take a look into our region’s past.

Chris Harris, Ord Minnett Buderim.



ate last calendar year we outlined our portfolio themes for 2017. We outline these below and offer an updated view. As a starting point we now expected the S&P/ASX200 to trade in a relatively wide trading band of 5200 – 6300 points for the year. As at April 30 the ASX 200 is trading at 5,924 – led by a rally in banking and mining stocks (on a 12 month view). For the ASX 200 to push higher from here we require global economic conditions to continue to improve, China to remain robust and banking regulation to be light. We highlight and update the key themes for 2017. Declining AUD/USD – we expect the AUD/USD to trade at US$0.68 by year end given narrowing interest rate differentials

between the US and Australia, and some moderation in commodity prices. There is a possibility that Australia will have lower rates than the US by the end of 2017. The last time this happened was in 1999–2000 at which time the AUD/USD traded around $0.60. We continue to like stocks that benefit from a weaker AUD/USD. Our view has not changed – the $A to weaken over 2017. US pedals faster – Donald Trump’s agenda of fiscal stimulus, via tax cuts, infrastructure spending, and increased protection of domestic jobs and industries should be positive for the US. Not only

“With June 30 fast approaching…now is the time to review your portfolio” should these measures add to US GDP growth but should also boost consumer spending. President Trump has learned that passing legislation through parliament is a battle, time consuming and you do not get what you want. That said, we believe he will deliver stimulus (perceived or real) to the US economy.

Yield Plus – we believe Australia is somewhat out of sync with the rest of the developed world, with a household sector that has not yet deleveraged, a residential cycle that is peaking, and more persistent weakness in inflation. Hence, we expect two more rate cuts here in 2017 (although hope this is not the case). Therefore, against very low cash rates, yield investments still make some sense. However, with long end rates in Australia likely to get dragged up by global pressures, we prefer names that offer a yield benefit in the near term and for which their valuations are not overly sensitive to higher long-end rates. Structural Growth – we continue to favour beneficiaries of structural trends, from the ageing population, to increased attention to health and wellbeing, the shift to online, China’s transformation and growing wealth. With June 30 fast approaching and market volatility increasing, now is the time to review your portfolio. A little house keeping is in order.

AIRPORT EXPANSION The Sunshine Coast Airport expansion is one step closer to fruition with the design contract signed. Beca Consultants Pty Ltd was named the successful tenderer following a competitive process. “The contract, worth almost $1.9 million, will see Beca designing a new 2450-metre long x 45-metre wide compliant runway,” Mayor Jamieson said last week. “The $347 million project is one of council’s game changing projects ensuring the Sunshine Coast is building now for our future. The new runway will open up the Coast to international markets in Australia, Asia and the Western Pacific, and drive economic growth.” Once operational from the end of 2020, the new runway will contribute an estimated $4.1 billion to the Coast economy in its first 20 years with 3500 fewer dwellings affected by noise.

Aussie hip-hop heroes Thundamentals are amped about playing their first trackside gig at Corbould Park. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


ustralian hip-hop stars Thundamentals can rock any venue they appear in. A rural setting for Groovin the Moo? No worries. A stadium in front of thousands in support of hip-hop legend Macklemore? Too easy. But what about playing to a crowd dressed to the nines at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club for Ladies’ Oaks Day? Brendan Tuckerman, more commonly known as MC Tuka, admits it will be a “pretty interesting day�. Hailing from the Blue Mountains, the guys are relishing the opportunity to connect with fans north of Brisbane they wouldn’t otherwise have been able to perform for as part of their seven-week New Zealand and Australia tour. Tuka, who has performed solo sets at the Solbar in Maroochydore over the years, says this is the first time the Thundamentals will hit the Coast. “This is the first time we’ve been trackside, we’ve never done anything like this before, but I think it’s going to be pretty awesome,� Tuka tells My Weekly Preview. Their arrival comes hot off the release of their fourth album Everyone We Know, which has been receiving attention after hitting number two on the ARIA Charts. The group, also including Morgan Jones, Jesse Ferris and Kevin Kerr, formed in 2007 and released two albums before their cover of Matt Corby’s hit Brother on Triple J’s Like a Version saw them catapulted into the spotlight. It has been onwards and upwards for the guys ever since, with their third album So We Can Remember, peaking at number three on the ARIA Charts in 2014.

Tuka says their latest album is by far their most personal, with songs about people who have helped shape them as people and as artists. They made an effort to connect with fans by posting a mobile phone number to their Facebook page to encourage and taking 10-hour shifts manning the phone to respond to as many people as they could. Tuka says they talked with or texted almost 1200 people. “We expected a couple of trolls, but we didn’t get any. We have lovely people that follow us and people who have supported us from day dot almost,� he says. “We talked to all sorts of people from around the country and some from Canada and Germany. Some people going

through really heavy things when we called them, some people not so heavy. But we wanted to connect with people not just through our music, but in a hands-on kind of way.� The connections were guided to an invite-only Facebook group and the community has since grown to 3000 people. “It might sound a bit cheesy, but it was so rad to break down barriers and show everyone that we are just human, no smoke and mirrors, we are just entertainers. We are as socially relevant as a taxi driver or a doctor, it’s just a job,� he says. “We wanted to remind people to take care of themselves and asked them how they were doing. It was humbling to be able to talk to someone one-on-one over the phone and then go out and play in front of a thousand people. It gives you scope as to who our fans are and helped us to make serious connections, not the fake interconnectedness you feel online.� Tuka says he is grateful every day for the longevity he has enjoyed in his career. “The fact that I can just keep going and that doesn’t seem like there’s an end in sight is really humbling, I am up to album number nine or 10 now and some of my friends have put out one album and that was it,� he says. “Longevity is the high of it all, I get to wake up every day and try to think about what’s worth talking about, get to do what I really love doing and not many people get to say that.� Check out the energetic set by the Thundamentals and enjoy a day of fun at the races at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club for Ladies’ Oaks Day on June 2 from 10.30am. Tickets are $30 at the door or $25 online at My Weekly Preview is a proud supporter of the event.

Todd Widdicombe reckons Little Creatures Fire Falcon Hoppy Red is the perfect winter brew.


t’s been another one of those crazy, restless weeks where my brain has kept me awake with seemingly trivial enquiries at midnight. Why are there no ‘B’ batteries? Are eyebrows considered facial hair? Do fish yawn? Was Tripitaka from Monkey Magic a boy or a girl? And perhaps the biggest of them all… what was the name of the dad from Family Ties? These are the types of things keeping me

awake at night, people. I’m not concerned about the state of our great nation or my kids’ school reports or whether or not the chubby North Korean kid is going to fire a missile our way. Oh no, I need to know if my dog can eat garlic bread. On the subject of Kim Jong-un though, the people are freaking out but I’m not sure there’s too much to worry about. I recently saw a picture of a paper boat on a lake with the caption: ‘North Korea launches Navy’. Seriously, Kim Jong’s planning more missile launches? Well, look out, middle of the ocean! Poor bugger, he’s got severe missile dysfunction. He can get it up, but he can’t keep it up for long. Surely there’s more chance of Mel Gibson being invited to a neighbourhood bar mitzvah than of any nuclear attack on the US. As far as our safety goes, Kim Jong’s not interested in little old Straya, we’ve got no oil or serious weapons, although I would advise the government to ship all remaining cronut supplies offshore for fear he might invade us for our baked goods. I think Kim Jong Un is only keeping martial law in effect in North Korea until whoever ate his last Cornetto comes forward. As for his perceived aggression

against China, it was all a huge misunderstanding. When he said, ‘Nuke the Chinese’, he wasn’t talking about the country, he was talking about heating up last night’s takeaway. Kim Jong didn’t say launch people, he said lunch. I did read he’s quite the playboy in his home town. Yep Kim Jong Un likes the ladies, but his lifestyle is full of controversies such as problem gambling, public drunkenness and sexual excess. In other words, if he came to Australia he could play for the NRL. Now although Kim Jong-un would prefer a cake review, this week’s new beer is sweet as. From the legendary brewers at

Fremantle’s Little Creatures comes a tops new beer you’re gonna love. The Fire Falcon Hoppy Red is this year’s winter seasonal from LC and is built on a solid foundation of a five-hop blend called Falconer’s Flight and immersed in a classic Red Ale. The Fire Falcon has all the familiar citrus and pine aromas of an American IPA or Pale Ale, but with a slight caramel sweetness, a perfect hint of nuttiness, plenty of malt and that classic Little Creatures satisfying finish. The FF Hoppy Red is like a Little Creatures Rogers on ‘roids. If Rogers is Danny DeVito, the Fire Falcon is Arnie. Perfect for winter, the Fire Falcon Hoppy Red is another deadset ripper from Little Creatures and gets four out of five thumbs up.

READER’S CORNER How to murder your life: A memoir Author: Cat Marnell Publisher: Penguin Random House RRP: $35 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane I will be the first to admit that fashion is not my forte and I did have to do some research on exactly who Cat Marnell was before I dove into her memoir. For those in the know, Marnell is one of the most notorious and also influential American beauty magazine editors and worked for several titles in the Conde

33.indd 1

Nast group. As the title eludes, this is not a fairytale story about a small town girl with big city dreams who lands her dream job. Well, it could have been… if she had not developed an early and increasingly crippling addiction to prescription medication. Marnell is nothing if not frank about her drug use and is quite flippant in the way she describes life in a constant drug haze. The only signs of remorse for what could have been (and the all-important ‘don’t do drugs, kids’ message) doesn’t come across until late in the book. But if you have always wanted to know what a day in the life of Marnell is like, this is the best window you could ever ask for. My Weekly Preview | May 26, 2017 33

Australia’s most famous motoring brand has taken on a distinctly European accent with the arrival of Holden’s new Astra. WORDS: Peter Atkinson, AAP.


elcome to the future. Well, perhaps not the future of the motor car itself. But certainly to the future of Holden, Australia’s most famous marque. As the curtain comes down on Aussie automobile manufacturing in the

coming months, Holden will look to imports, built by its European siblings, to underpin its model range. And this car is the first true glimpse of that future. The all-new Holden Astra. The nameplate will be familiar, of course. The Astra has a long and successful

history Down Under – for more than two decades filling the very important role as Holden’s most popular and most accessible four-cylinder model. Its place in the pecking order was assumed a few years ago by the Australianbuilt Cruze, which was met with only

modest success despite its many impressive qualities. Now, like its Aussie-built Commodore sibling, the Cruze has literally reached the end of the production line. In its place arrives a very stylish, and very up-market Astra, carrying the hopes of Holden dealers everywhere. Not surprisingly, its arrival has been accompanied by a pervasive promotional campaign that began before the car had even started arriving on our shores. With no “buy Aussie” sentiment to fuel its future appeal, Holden has gone full-tilt at emphasising the new Astra’s pedigree – built by General Motors’ respected Opel brand at a factory in Gliwice, Poland. So, how does this new Astra stack up? Well, pretty nicely, thanks for asking. Holden really can’t afford to get this car wrong. And they haven’t. In fact they’ve got it very right in a couple of significant ways. Firstly price. The Astra will cost as little as $21,990 in its basic form – money that buys you an impressive array of standard features and sets the platform for the more highly-priced, highly-specified models further up the line. Secondly, the Astra will impress with its dynamics, finish and levels of equipment. The Astra badge has a proud place in Holden’s history. It started rather humbly as a re-badged Nissan Pulsar when first sold in

Just as good the second time around. Mercedes-Benz Certified vehicles. Available now at Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast.

MOTORING the mid to late ’80s. The Astra is most fondly remembered for the fourth-generation TS model, which sold from 1998 to 2005. So beloved was that car it endured as the “Astra classic” even after it was superseded. No need for such a safety net with this seventh-generation model. This is one of the best cars to wear the proud lion badge. Dollar for dollar, it might just be the best Holden we’ve ever driven. It boasts outstanding technology in both dynamics and convenience, and delivers style and comfort to match anything in this ultra-competitive class. Keep in mind its rivals include the dominant Mazda3 and the world’s best-selling vehicle of all time, the Toyota Corolla. The Astra makes a solid case against both. Inside it’s all elegant simplicity. Styling and soft-touch surfaces are first class. Switches are minimalistic and classy, yet pleasingly easy to use. A seven-inch touchscreen, showcasing Holden’s MyLink infotainment system, sits atop the dash and is vivid and smart. But perhaps the most impressive feature is the simplest, yet one we’ve never seen before. A little slot-like shelf at the bottom of the centre stack, perfectly sized to cradle a smart-phone so it can sit, screen-out, in easy view. Perfect if you’re using the phone to navigate – removing the need for people to handle the phone while driving.

expensive than the entry-level model while a six-speed auto adds a further $2000. But at $28,690 it’s impressively fitted out. Radar-guided cruise control, bringing with it a frontal collision avoidance and emergency braking function, tops that list, along with lane keeping assist and blindspot alert. Other standard kit on the RS included attractive alloy wheels, keyless entry with push-button start, heated wing mirrors and advanced parking assist. The only omission of note was the use of an old-style manual handbrake, rather than an electronic one. Despite its clear European heritage, Holden has kept faith with Aussie drivers by switching the indicator across to the right-hand side. Step up to the higher-spec RS-V model ($33,990 plus onroads) and you can add a larger, eight-inch infotainment screen, remote start, adaptive cruise, leather trim, colour digital instrument display and an optional, advanced LED headlight system. Mechanically, the Astra is particularly strong. The 1.6-litre, turbocharged engine is instantly responsive, revs and accelerates with great enthusiasm and never seems stressed or overworked. Holdens have always delivered satisfying ride and handling characteristics and this new Astra is no exception. It feels secure and beautifully balanced, soaks up road

Navigation is standard in the higherspec RS-V models, of course, but not in the entry-level R or the RS tested here. That’s one of the few exclusions. Standard features across the range include reversing camera, six airbags, ABS, ESC and traction control; hill-start assist, cruise control with speed limiter and fuel-saving stop-start technology. The R model uses a turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol engine, while a more powerful 1.6-litre turbo four is found in the RS and RS-V models. The RS, tested here, is $4500 more

imperfections nicely and feels sharp and almost sporty in its handling. Road noise in the RS was a little more than we’d have preferred but hardly a deal-breaker. The risk for Holden in so heavily promoting this car was that it might have under-delivered. Nothing could be further from the truth. It already makes the teaser campaign for the new, European-built Commodore more tantalising. But that’s a whole different future we’re talking about.

HOLDEN ASTRA RS HOW BIG? Delivers impressive interior space and a feeling of roominess, despite its compact dimensions. Decent cargo space beneath that rear hatch, too.

HOW FAST? Impressively so with the 1.6-litre, turbocharged petrol engine. It’s responsive and very smart when darting in and out of city traffic.

HOW THIRSTY? The official figure for the bigger 1.6-litre engine is 6.3L/100km – while the smaller, entry-level 1.4-litre delivers 5.7L/100km.

HOW MUCH? The basic R model with six-speed manual transmission costs $21,990 plus onroads. Get into the top-spec RS-V – and add one of the option packs – and you’ll be forking out almost double that.

FIVE WAYS TO GIVE YOUR HOME A LIFT Channel 10 presenter Cherie Barber will visit the Coast this year to lend a hand to a local charity. She spoke with My Weekly Preview about the top five ways any DIY newbie can win at renovating.


enovation queen Cherie Barber is headed to the Sunshine Coast later this year to take part in a photo shoot for fundraising project, the Vintage Calendar Girls. As part of the fundraising efforts to support Coast families who are battling a rare cancer diagnosis, Barber has agreed to auction off one hour of her time to consult with the winner on renovation ideas. Here, the public speaker and renovator from Network Ten’s The Living Room, shares her top five tips for DIY home projects. Whether you have purchased a new home or own an investment property, these five cosmetic improvements will boost the value and appearance of the property.

1. PAINTING Virtually anyone is capable of painting – and once you get busy with some good-quality rollers, you can knock off a couple of rooms in a day. In 25-plus years of renovating, I’ve never found anything as powerful as paint for achieving miracle transformations in really tight time frames. Opt for a neutral palette that won’t date and white high-gloss for doors and trims, so everything gleams.

2. KITCHEN AND BATHROOM FACELIFT If your kitchen and bathroom need replacing, that’s certainly no weekend project. However, if they’re structurally in good condition but just cosmetically the wrong colour or dated, then again, paint is your friend. White Knight Laminate paint goes on like normal paint, but can radically transform the look and feel of your kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanity for less than $100. There’s also specialist tile paint to gloss over unsightly tiles, appliance paint, products for painting or even resurfacing benchtops so they mimic granite.

This kitchen was transformed almost entirely with paint, for $1000 total, including new Gerflor vinyl flooring.

A coat of paint in a neutral colour and slimline venetians go a long way to transforming any interior, and they’re one of the easier DIY projects.

3. UPDATED FLOORING New flooring is a big ask for your average DIYer, but with products like Gerflor stick-on vinyl flooring, virtually anyone can lay this over the top of existing flooring. You can change the whole look of a living room or kitchen in a couple of days.

4. THE DEVIL IN THE DETAIL This is when you break out the drill. Updating hardware like towel racks, door handles, even installing new shelves can really modernise a place. You’ll be amazed how much these small details can make. Slimline micro venetians are cheap and a great replacement for daggy curtains or those old ‘70s vertical blinds; just make sure you have the exact window measurements to hand when you’re shopping for your off-the-shelf venetians.

driveways and paths and if your garden is overgrown, cut back and remove heavy shrubbery, which will make your front yard appear larger than it really is. Bulk up your garden beds with nicer plants or decorative pebbles / woodchips and breathe new life into your lawn with fertiliser. Top it all off with a snazzy new letterbox.

CHERIE’S advice With labour one of the biggest costs in any renovation, anything you can safely DIY is going to be a big money saver. A modern kitchen and bathroom is always going to attract buyers, so a quick cosmetic update is a great value-add. And never underestimate the power of good kerb appeal. Those first impressions could be the difference between a quick drive-by and a buyer leaping out of the car to get a look inside.

5. SPRUCE UP THE FRONT FACADE First impressions count, so it’s important your property looks its best from the street. Paving paint can revamp tired old

OK, Brazil is over and time to remove the sharp pencils from my eye balls. Now, on to Fiji where we should see some epic battles. I wonder if Mr Slaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back will be mended. Was it even sore? I cannot wait for this event to kick off! Last year was off the hook. Last week had some fun waves across the Coast. A lot better than I first thought. This weekend looks like some light winds with waves across the Coast. Hopefully you get your fair share. Once again I have heard some good reports of the sand up at DI. So, if you have time during the week head up and enjoy.

ESTUARY: Oversize whiting are taking yabbies and cured worms on the rising tide during the night along the Twin Waters banks and at the sand banks near the Bli Bli bridge. Estuary cod and flathead on live baits around Cotton Tree behind the swimming pool. SURF: Quality dart from Yaroomba to Mudjimba using pippies. Whiting and bream at Maroochy North Shore with beach worms and fowl gut best. Small chopper tailor in most gutters from Coolum to Kawana. Better quality at night. OFFSHORE: Moses perch, sweetlip and squire from Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reef to Caloundra Six Mile being caught this past week during the calm conditions. Squid, cut baits and plastics are the best performing bait. The Barwon banks have been returning most cod species, rosy job fish, parrot and snapper. FRESHWATER: Plenty of action below the spillway of most impoundments with bass, golden perch and Mary River cod taking shrimps and lures. Somerset has bass, golden perch and jew on both lures and baits. Borumba Dam is one spot firing for saratoga with flies, shallow diving lures and floated baits all working well.

Business-minded bulls – a creative approach clears away cobwebs when it comes to money matters. And with Mars moving through your money zone the more proactive you are about your cash flow, the more your financial situation will improve.

With the Sun and Mars in your sign, you’re feeling flirtatious. As Kylie Minogue says “I’m just a natural flirt.” Mercury (your ruling planet) links up with powerful Pluto on Wednesday, so it’s time to approach life with extra passion and persistence.


14 15

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20) Get ready for the spontaneous sparks to fly this week! Which could work out well, depending on your attitude. Brilliant ideas are favoured, but a hasty and half-baked approach could see you end up in a heap of trouble. So pace yourself rams.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)


With Jupiter and the Sun stimulating your home zone, is it time to shake up your routine, clear clutter or even renovate? You need plenty of room to move at the moment. A family relationship is also set to improve in leaps and bounds.

The planets activate your hopes and wishes zone, so you need to be passionately proactive about your goals for the future. Don’t just dream about it … get out there and do it! Confidence is the rocket fuel that will take you where you want to go.

Virgos are versatile and multitalented, but you’re not very good at promoting your skills. This week, with the Sun, Mars and Jupiter revving up your reputation zone, you’re shining in the public spotlight. So make sure you’re putting on a spectacular show!

You love your comforts and luxuries but avoid getting stuck in a rut. With the Sun, Mars and Jupiter all activating your adventure zone, it’s time to plan an overseas sojourn, take an interstate trip or rough it in the great outdoors closer to home.

Grab your magnifying glass and don your detective cap! With the Sun and Jupiter activating your intrigue zones you could uncover a secret. Plus, with Mercury and Pluto linking up, you’re in the mood to read, research and investigate.

When it comes to a close relationship, slow down. If you jump to half-baked conclusions about a loved one, then you could end up with egg on your Sagittarian face! Single archers – love and travel are linked in wonderful ways, so start saving ASAP.




Expect Monday to be full of frustrations. But business matters are favoured from Tuesday onwards, when your instincts lead you in the right direction. If you are fair and flexible, you’ll be able to patch up a problem with a family member.

You’ll feel like rocking the relationship boat. Be careful who you stir up though, as they may have a few surprises of their own! Make the most of your unique talents on Tuesday and Wednesday, when Mars and Uranus rev up your creativity.

Life’s confusing for many Pisceans at the moment but don’t become overly dependent on the counsel of others. Asking for advice is fine, but it’s up to you to make the final decision. Flashes of intuition will lead intrepid fish in the right direction.

Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE ART OF GOOD GOVERNANCE Richard O’Leary learns the ABCs of the boardroom while his sons prove they’re already ahead of the game.


hile a painting by American artist Jean-Michael Basquiat was going under the hammer for a record $110 million last week, I was busy at a company directors’ course trying to pencil a path to future employment opportunities. Over five gruelling days and nights, the dozen or so of us learnt about the duties of directors, risk management, developing a strategic direction, and financial literacy. I came away feeling like I could make some contribution in a boardroom, but I have to say I know some people who could already do that without the help of a course. Case in point, my eight-year-old son who not only knows how to develop a strategic direction – but can also devise a plan, and more importantly – deliver it. I’ll give you an example. We don’t like our boys playing

computer games, thinking that they could be, to use a company director’s term, a “major disruptor” to family life as we know it. Our eight-year-old accepted that decision with such grace that we came up with a compromise, allowing him to learn computer coding on weekends. And with a little help from a couple of books, and a lot of perseverance, he has taught himself how to do it. But just recently we stumbled across the bigger picture at play – he is now designing his own computer games. Child 1, parents 0. Another thing the course taught the group last week was the importance of asking questions until you get to the root cause of the issue. As a former journo, I was encouraged to have already learnt the five Ws – what, who, where, when, and why. Before I got too cocky, I remembered my six-year-old is already a master of the technique, although he has distilled it even

further. He uses the five whys. I’ll give you an example. Dad, why are we stopped? Because the traffic lights are red. Why? Because they’re on a timer to try and get the traffic to flow smoothly. Why? Because people are impatient? Why? TV has ruined everybody’s concentration span to the space between ads? Why? Look the lights are green... Imagine if you had to get a new spending initiative past those five whys. My youngest doesn’t seem too interested in a business career, preferring instead to while away his time drawing and painting. I can’t blame him, who wants to take a pay cut to be in a boardroom when you could be the next Basquiat?
