FROM THE EDITOR
am not one of those people who has been blessed on the sporting field. When the coordination genes were being dished out, I somehow missed out. On two memorable occasions, while participating in sport, I broke my arm – twice in one year. And, as for school sport, I think my teachers took pity on me as somehow, by some miracle, I was selected in the netball team. I may not have been a valuable asset on the court but I am grateful for the experience as it gave me the chance to appreciate, and enjoy, team sport. What I have learnt through the years is that you don’t have to be brilliant on the field to enjoy sport. Team sport teaches young people the importance of physical exercise and instils a sense of confidence, healthy competition and sportsmanship. Sport also creates a sense of community and brings people together. One of my favourite things to do is sit with my family, and cheer on our NRL football teams (Cowboys for me, Titans for hubby). I’ve also been following this year’s stellar performance by the Sunshine Coast Lightning. It has been great to witness an all-female sporting team receive the recognition and support it deserves. For too long, Australian sport has focused on male competitors. Hopefully the tides are changing. The MWP team wishes the players all the best for this weekend’s grand final.

My Weekly Preview | June 16, 2017 9
12/06/2017 2:48:53 PM
BUILDING DREAMS Where do you live? My family and I live on a working farm in Reesville (Maleny), where we breed Brangus cattle. We are also lucky enough to own a place at Peregian Beach.
Favourite music? I like various artists – Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran and Angus & Julia Stone.
First job? Working in northern Australia on a large cattle station as a stockman. Not long after this, I started my first business at a young age.
How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? Over a decade; we have strong emotional ties to the Coast.
What are you currently working on? Mosaic has plans to roll out a $175 million-plus pipeline of five to six projects across the Sunshine Coast over a two-year period, with the first two projects being luxury beachside apartment buildings at Kings Beach. We’re extremely proud of the fact that we will not only be bringing beautifully designed projects to areas in the Sunshine Coast that have pent-up demand for iconic residential buildings of the calibre that has not been seen in the area for 10-plus years, but our development pipeline will bring real economic benefit to the region by creating over 650 direct and indirect full-time equivalent positions, with 380 of those jobs on the Coast. We are also passionate about ensuring that we engage closely and respectfully within the communities where we are developing, whilst also ensuring our projects will be highly sustainable from an environmental perspective.
Best advice you’ve been given? Walk your talk and do what you say you will do, and don’t assume anything.
Why do you live here? It’s understated. The cafe, restaurant and shopping choice has evolved but the Coast has kept its laid-back feel. The natural landscape is phenomenal – hinterland, mountains, national parks and stunning beaches – best place in Australia to live. If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? I would like to see light rail connect the southern end of the Coast to the north and I would like to see more employment opportunities created so that young people can stay here, plan for the future and raise their own families. Less people competing for waves would also be nice, but that’s not going to happen (ha, ha).
“Be humble, show empathy regardless of your differences, be grateful daily”
Brook Monahan BIO
With his wife Kathryn and four young children to keep him company, Brook Monahan divides his time between his hinterland farm and his Peregian Beach house. His company Mosaic Property Group develops luxury apartments with a focus on quality and sustainability. In his spare time he breeds cattle and quarter horses, catches a few waves and loves watching his kids play soccer.
10 My Weekly Preview | June 16, 2017
Your family includes. . . My wife Kathryn and I have been married for 12 years and we have four children; Noah 10, Freddie 8, Archie 5 and Florrie 3. First car? 1979 Toyota FJ Landcruiser. Still my favourite car that I have ever owned. Favourite book? A Fortunate Life by AB Facey. What are you reading now? Multiple books at the same time, which is very typical for me: How Will Capitalism End? By Wolfgang Streeck, The Life You Can Save by Peter Singer, Creating Room to Read by John Wood, and Spirit Level – Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better by Kate Pickett.
Best day in your life? My wedding day and the birth of our four kids. Cannot be beaten.
You are happiest when? I am with my wife and kids. And personally, when I am surfing or on the farm. What frustrates you the most? My perceived lack of time to do everything I want to do daily and weekly. How do you deal with your frustrations? Not so well at times, but being active and outdoors is really important. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? Be humble, show empathy regardless of your differences, be grateful daily, don’t bullshit and don’t cut corners. Tea or coffee? Definitely coffee – strong. Mostly double shot short flat whites or macchiatos. NRL or AFL? NRL – Broncos.

A TRAIL TO DISCOVER THE WONDERS OF THE SUNSHINE COAST THE Coastal Discovery Trail is at the cultural heart of Yaroomba Beach. Yaroomba Beach will be a place where families – locals and tourists – can interact and come face to face with the environment and both contemporary and indigenous culture. Bringing together the community, environment and culture, the Coastal Discovery Trail will wind along pathways through the protected wallum vegetation to the beach and coastal village. The trail will provide a creative and educational journey – through the cultural art walk to a native cuisine garden, past the yarning circle for storytelling to the lookout of Mt Coolum and the beach.
Contemporary and traditional sculpture pieces will be commissioned by local and indigenous artist, bringing together the themes of culture and ecology. The starting point of the trail will be the Coastal Discovery Centre, a destination in its own right that will promote the surrounding natural landscape … but more of that in future columns. Yaroomba Beach will be one of a new standard of ecotourism destinations for the Sunshine Coast.

LIGHTNING SET TO #LIGHT IT UP IN GRAND FINAL Our first elite sports team, the Sunshine Coast Lightning, has done us proud in their maiden season. As they head into the Suncorp Super Netball Grand Final this weekend at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, our community will be cheering them on.
“Whether the Lightning win the grand final or not – just making it to this point is a massive achievement in their debut year” Coach Noeline Taurua (in black) with the team after their 56–55 win over the Melbourne Vixens in the Suncorp Super Netball Major Semi-Final at Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne Image: GettyImages
he Sunshine Coast Lightning has proven they are a force to be reckoned with and have played an almost infallible season in their quest for the top position in the Suncorp Super Netball competition. Under the leadership of coach Noelene Taurua, the Lightning will take on Sydney’s Giants Netball in the grand final on June 17, in what will be the culmination of a dream maiden season. Sunshine Coast Lightning CEO Danielle Smith says one of the keys to their success is that every member of the team, both on and off the court, shared the same values and had the right attitude. “It always comes down to the people. We are all passionate and we all wanted to make it successful. Everyone has had a say in all aspects along the way and everyone’s feeling like they are part of it,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “Our focus for building a strong team culture came from the (partner club, NRL’s Melbourne) Storm, but there is something unique and special in everyone being part of this club in the inaugural year that brings everyone together.”

It’s not only the club’s infancy that makes the Lightning unique in the national competition, it is also the fact that they are the only team that trains and plays at the same venue – the University of the Sunshine Coast. Smith says every home game has sold out and the club hoped to work with the uni and the Sunshine Coast Council to expand

It really builds on our narrative that the Sunshine Coast is a place where health, fitness and sport blend
naturally with the landscape.” Latchford says tourism industry feedback shows there has been an increase in day trip visitors during home game matches. “Whether the Lightning win the grand final or not – just making it to this point is a massive achievement in their debut year,” he says. “The media exposure of the final and Sunshine Coast name and brand in the spotlight will equate to positive publicity for the region. Equally impressive is the fact the team and club are just as good ambassadors off the court as they are on it.”

Now, the wife of the former US President has revealed her husband wore the same tuxedo through two full terms and no one noticed. "That's the unfair thing,’’ she said. "No matter what we do, he puts on that same tux." James Corden received the Man of the Year Award from Liam Payne in the press room.

GENEROSITY GIVES TROY LISTER HIS LIFE-SAVING SURGERY Caloundra father-of-two Troy Lister has received potentially life-saving surgery in Sydney thanks to the generosity of the Coast community, who banded together to raise the $100,000 needed. Renowned neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo has performed the surgery to remove an aggressive brain tumour that was deemed too risky to operate on by Queensland doctors. Lister’s wife Marie started the Go Fund Me appeal to pay for hospital costs associated with the operation and was overwhelmed by the support the family received, with more than $80,000 of their goal raised in just one month.
LUCKY MWP READER WINS GOLD COAST HOLIDAY Leigh Mills of Aroona has won two nights at the Gold Coast staying in an ocean view apartment at the luxurious Mantra Crown Towers. The photographer and web designer said she tried to travel when work permitted, but also tried to get away once a year. Mills was delighted with the win and said she would be entering more My Weekly Preview competitions in the future. She said receiving the phone call to inform her about the win was a “wonderful start” to her week.
Long-serving Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service Chief Executive, Kevin Hegarty, has announced he will be leaving the role on June 30 after almost 14 years in the role. Hegarty was instrumental in leading the development of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the transitional period for the entire Sunshine Coast Health and Hospital Service. Hegarty says he plans to work independently to mentor emerging leaders and executives. Hegarty had promised his wife Judy when he signed a five-year contract in 2012 that he would not extend his term when it came to an end.
COAST PARKS WIN STATE AWARDS Two of the region’s most popular playgrounds claimed state-wide recognition, with Nambour’s Quota Park Youth Activity Precinct and Heroes’ Walk named Queensland’s Park of the Year. The Parks and Leisure Australia Awards of Excellence also awarded Moffat Beach Park Fig Tree Playground the Best Playspace Under $500,000 title. Quota Park opened in 2014 to great fanfare, while the Fig Tree Playground was renewed last year with the help of significant community consultation.
HUNDREDS CAN HAVE THE SWEETEST JOB The Sweetest Job campaign, which last year resulted in nearly 200 locals gaining work in the strawberry industry, has been expanded to deliver jobs in the wider Food and Agribusiness industry. The expansion follows investment by the Queensland Government under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. Sunshine Coast economic development portfolio councillor Steve Dave and Laura from Taste ‘n See Robinson says this means more people will be employed across the whole agribusiness supply chain and not just on farms. The first project intake in the Sunshine Coast region will focus on food processing and logistics. Jobseekers and local employers can register their interest at thesweetestjob.com.au.

RISKY MOVE HAS PAID OFF FOR THIS CRUISY COUPLE
eoff Peters and his wife Leanne call themselves â€˜roving retireesâ€™, but that vaguely sleepy sounding title belies the amazing chain of events theyâ€™ve experienced since making the decision to quit work in September last year. At 56 and 55 and after having enjoyed long careers, Geoff and Leanne felt ready to retire, but realised they couldnâ€™t afford to do so in Australia at their age. The solution? Buy a 40-foot motor cruiser and spend the next five to 10 years cruising the waterways of Europe. â€œWe love the ocean and love being on the water,â€? Geoff says. â€œYou can get boats that are designed as coastal cruisers and boats designed to cruise the rivers and canals and this one is flexible enough to do both.â€? In pursuit of his dream, Geoff flew to the UK in November last year to check out the boat, which heâ€™d found online and was docked at South Hampton. He bought the boat, named it Sunshine Coast in order to give our region a plug on his travels, and told Leanne to start preparing to rent their Wurtulla home. Then things really started to happen. â€œA year ago, we were thinking, itâ€™s going to be another three years before we can even think about retirement and doing something like this,â€? Peters says. â€œSo we made the
decision to buy the boat and then all these opportunities came up. First, an opportunity to speak on a cruise ship came out of the blue â€“ I didnâ€™t even know those things existed.â€? Both Geoff and Leanne have military backgrounds â€“ Geoff was in the Navy for eight years and Leanne was in the Army for 12 years â€“ and it was Geoffâ€™s maritime background that scored him the speaking gig. â€œI was asked to give speaking presentations on a cruise ship travelling around Southeast Asia,â€? Geoff says. The topics were all maritime related subjects, but then Iâ€™d talk about retirement, buying the boat. Afterwards, people came up and said, can we follow your travels? So we started a blog.â€? The next surprise came when a friend offered Geoff and Leanne jobs as court attendants at Wimbledon, another exciting addition to their â€˜retirementâ€™ plans. â€œI have to bring a towel back from Wimbledon for my mother-in-law whoâ€™s 80 and still plays tennis,â€? Geoff laughs. â€œAfter we got the invitation to work at Wimbledon, the Scots said, come and work with us, but we canâ€™t pay you.â€? Heâ€™s referring to the Scottish Commonwealth Games team, which sent a delegation to the Coast in May. Up to 300

Leaving their jobs to cruise the waterways of Europe indefinitely was a liberating decision for these Sunshine Coast roving retirees. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
Leanne and Geoff Peters athletes and support staff from Team Scotland will call the Sunshine Coast home in the lead-up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Having spent five years working with Sunshine Coast Council as the industry investment facilitator for tourism sport and leisure, Geoff came up on the teamâ€™s radar as the right person to show them around the Coast before they set up camp at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort next year. â€œI hosted 32 people in all, including 17
heads of sports, and showed them our venues and facilities,â€? Geoff says. â€œThey loved it. They couldnâ€™t believe they had so many options and most of the venues we saw, they said this is better than what we train on back home. â€œThey couldnâ€™t believe how welcoming and accommodating the people were. We took them down to the beach at Twin Waters â€“ it wasnâ€™t even a great day but they just went nuts about that. They noticed little things we donâ€™t even appreciate, like the free barbecues on the beach.â€? Geoff was delighted when the Scots invited he and Leanne to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in August, something else to tick off the bucket list. â€œI just canâ€™t wait for the Tattoo,â€? he says. â€œWith the Scots here, they were telling me all about it and giving me insights into the festival beforehand and the Tattoo itself and I just canâ€™t wait. Iâ€™m looking forward to the boat, Iâ€™m looking forward to Wimbledon, but the Tattoo is what Iâ€™m most looking forward to. Itâ€™s way beyond what I would have dreamed of a year ago.â€? The couple arrived in England on May 28, which was Leanneâ€™s first opportunity to see the Sunshine Coast for herself. â€œStrangely, we have no feelings of

Has your memory and mental clarity declined? Not as sharp as you should be? Find out why Preventing short and long term cognitive decline can be simple. Are you not as sharp as you used to be? Are you more forgetful? Writing lists to remember daily tasks or shopping? Having difficulty finding the right words, or forgetting names or faces you’ve met before? Are you forgetting information you once knew? Reducing your risk of memory related disease before it’s too late is not difficult by addressing the factors that can contribute to memory loss and cognitive decline. It often begins early with simple deficiencies reducing your production of brain chemicals necessary for memory. If left unaddressed, signs of depression or anxiety, stress or fatigue begin to occur as early as in your 30’s. Identifying and removing the triggers and contributing factors early, you reduce the irreversible damage that is seen in the brains of dementia patients, the most commonly known is Alzheimer’s disease. The bottom line is this: it all comes down to nervous system health, if brain cells die, the result is loss of function.
Dementia has been shown to affect people in their early 30’s, and will become the leading cause of death for women within just a few years. Geoff Peters (front right) with the Scottish Commonwealth Games delegation gig on a 10-night cruise to Hong Kong, China and Japan, but couldn’t go because we had booked things too far in advance. “We’re learning all the time and that’s part of the reason we set up the website, to pass on what we learn to others. “We’ll be talking about our travels and giving hints and tips on having a roving retirement,” he says. “We think it’s going to be five years before we even scratch the surface of what we want to do. In five years we’ll say, do we still like it? We really have no idea how long we’ll be away for. It’s very liberating.”
apprehension,” Geoff says. “Leanne had a few qualms at first but she’s seen that everything is possible and there are no real scary things out there. If something does come up, we can resolve those issues. We used to own a charter company up in the Whitsundays and we both have a lot of boating experience. Anyone could drive a boat through the rivers and canals of Europe.” The couple plans to cruise Europe indefinitely and see where the wind takes them: “There are so many opportunities out there,” Geoff says. “The only thing we would change right now is on a couple of occasions we’ve booked things too far in advance and haven’t been able to take advantage of opportunities. I got offered a

But what contributes to the death of our brain neurons? There are a number of easily identifiable factors that can be treated, such as high cortisol levels caused by stress, oxidative and free radical damage from a poor diet or food intolerances, inflammation from bacterial infection, imbalanced brain chemical production, viruses, heavy metal toxicity, poor cell function compounded by alcohol and smoking, nutrient deficiencies and simply not enough oxygen to the brain. All of these causes are detectable in specialised testing at any age, and are simple to address when detected early. You don’t have to sit around and wait to see if it will happen to you, take charge and pave the way for a bright, functioning and perceptive future. With professional advice from one of our trained practitioners, you no longer have to be a statistic, but can instead age with the grace, clarity and vitality you deserve.

CATCHING LIFE’S CURVE BALLS
WHY IS YES SO HARD TO SAY
Sami Muirhead meets a Sunshine Coast mum battling a rare disease and gets a wake-up call to stop sweating the small stuff.
Rebecca Grisman says the Sunshine Coast needs to move with the times and that means a change of mindset for many of us.
ometimes in life you need a little reminder of big problems versus little problems. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The years teach much what the days never know.” Traffic jams, the photocopier jamming again at work and the kids screaming at each other are small problems in the grand scale of life. Failing health is as big a problem as it gets. We have our own Sunshine Coast Wonder Woman who has an epic fight on her hands. Elissa Bartholomew is a mum of two kids who has a rare disease called scleroderma, which is incredibly cruel as it basically turns your body to cement over time. There is no cure at this stage. Scleroderma is a Greek word that means ‘hard’ and ‘skin’. When I touched Elissa’s hands I couldn’t help but notice her fingers feel like cold and hard cement. The dead weight and chill of her hands struck me as being so surreal and so strange because they are in such direct contrast to what is clearly a very warm and loving soul who knows only too well what lies ahead. Elissa is 43 and has a two-year-old girl who loves The Very Hungry Caterpillar and pretty much everything else little girls her age love. Most of all, she loves her mummy. The Mapleton mum also has an 18-year-old child who is at university and is clearly a loving and devoted son. “My biggest fear is that I won’t get to see Darcee grow up or see Tyler find his true love and get married.” Elissa says. “I also fear I
wont grow old and grey with my husband Jeff. On top of that, it can be very painful and I have days I cannot lift my head off the pillow because of the pain that comes from the tight skin and muscles. Then there is also the fatigue and constant reflux. That’s a burn I will never get used to.” Elissa is thinking of others however and is running a charity screening of the new movie Wonder Woman at the Nambour Majestic Cinema on the June 24. The aim of the night is to raise money for research for a cure and to raise awareness about this insidious disease. The fact is it will be heaps of fun with great people at a great venue and great raffle prizes. I am going because I want to show support to this amazing mum. “My message is to live for the now. Do what makes you happy and do not worry about trying to please everyone, that is not possible. Life will throw you some really big curve balls and you can chose to catch them and become stronger or dodge them and wonder what could have been. Choose to catch them. You may just end up surprising yourself. Am I Wonder Woman? No. Have you seen my legs? I’d never be able to pull off that costume! I’m just a mum who had a crappy card dealt to her and like all mums who have kids, you’ll do whatever is in your power to see them grow up and become awesome adults.” Tickets are $25 from eventbrite.com.au See you there. And for the record Elissa, I reckon you should wear the WW costume on the night.

’m a little concerned that we are becoming a region of naysayers. I recently attended more than a dozen community events and seminars within a fortnight and from reading the media coverage and online discussion of those events afterwards, I wondered at the way the facts presented, issues raised and robust debate was transformed into negative slants. I understand it is human nature to dislike or resist change, but surely if you disagree, or require more information, then your next step is to do a little research or ask questions before rejecting a premise or a proposal outright, and definitely before resorting to bagging and name calling. The Sunshine Coast region has undergone significant change in my own experience living locally for almost 25 years, but many of the changes to our infrastructure, facilities, organisations and cultural opportunities have been ultimately positive. Of all the most debated local issues over development, carparks, naming rights, tollways, roundabouts, dog beaches, parking meters and election promises in my time, there are very few that proved to be white elephants. I was here when local people and groups declared they did not want – nor did we need – the university, Sunshine Plaza’s boardwalk, Mooloolaba Esplanade’s hotel apartments, the Maroochy Bushland
Botanic Garden, Kawana Island’s walkable waterfront, Duporth Avenue and Ocean Street revamped, the new hospital, the motorway and later the motorway upgrade, Cotton Tree park’s works, Corbould Park updated, the bus transit centre, the Maroochy Boulevard bridge, cycleways through Maroochydore – and so on. Now we mostly take these for granted. Right now we need more change and the facts support the new airport runway, an upgraded rail, more highway lanes, the CBD
“I understand it is human nature to dislike or resist change” – all necessary and well overdue. I’d add we need a better bus network and bus lanes across the region if we expect people to actually use public transport and not just spruik the light rail. History shows that since Federation, Australians have rejected most proposals for constitutional amendments. In the 1950s Prime Minister Robert Menzies likened getting a Yes vote from the Australian people on a referendum to the labours of Hercules. Saying yes and working together to sing from the same hymn sheet is something other regions from Cairns to Toowoomba can easily claim. I wish we could say the same.

SCHOOL’S ‘HEALTH WARD’ A FIRST FOR SUNSHINE COAST A simulated hospital ward is giving students at a Coast high school real training and a pathway into a medical career. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
s you walk into the Kawana Waters State College model health ward, you could be forgiven for thinking you had stepped into a Sunshine Coast University Hospital room. Everything from the high-end electric beds to the colour coded switch panels and the accompanying equipment, mirrors the environment qualified health professionals work in every day. The college received equipment donations from Spotless, the company responsible for kitting out the new SCUH, and has invested thousands in electronic equipment for a nurses station and audio visual gear to allow students to watch as their peers work their way through scenarios given to them by registered nurse and health teacher Helen Knowles. More equipment, including curtains for the ward, more prosthetic limbs for practising cannulation and computer stations, will arrive in the coming weeks. This new model health ward is the first of its kind on the Sunshine Coast and allows students to gain practical hands-on experience while studying a TAFE Certificate II and III in Basic Health Care. Knowles says 10 Year 12 students
Tahlia Stephenson and Chloe Wheeler at work in the Kawana Waters State College health ward head start towards pursuing if they wish,” she says. “I have been nursing for 34 years and I don’t want to do half a job or romanticise the industry, I want them to be ready and have the increased knowledge and skills they need. This will now be possible with this facility.”
graduated with the higher qualification last year and this year, 12 Year 12 and 11 Year 11 students will make up a composite class of 23 to study the curriculum in the new setting. “Health care is more than just nurses and doctors, there are a host of occupations out there that these students will have a
Principal Colin Allen-Waters says the facility provides “a clear employment pathway” for students and a Memorium of Understanding with the University of the Sunshine Coast allows students who complete the Advanced First Aid course and the 18 months’ worth of study for Certificate II and III in Basic Health Care first preference into tertiary health courses to continue their study. “We are proud of both the model health ward within the school, as well as our teachers making a difference inside the Sunshine Coast University Hospital School as we build the next generation in more ways than one,” Allen-Waters says. The health ward was opened on June 14 by Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Cameron Dick, Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service chief executive Kevin Hegarty and Mayor Mark Jamieson.
Health businesses on the Coast interested in hosting students for a week of work experience, a requirement for their TAFE qualification, can email Cindy Steele at email@example.com.

Nicole Kidman’s luxe to less beauty buys The perennially youthful Nicole Kidman has been killing it on the red carpets of late, looking stunning at Cannes and the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards recently. Her makeup always looks flawless thanks to the effort she puts into maintaining her porcelain skin. She takes Swisse vitamins daily, eats organic and swears by Neutrogena sunscreen and eye cream, and is a long-time fan of luxe celebrity favourite, La Mer. Her handbag must-have is Benefit’s Benetint, a rose-coloured cheek and lip stain that gives a natural-looking flush to lips and cheeks and suits all complexions.

MULTICOLOURED EYE MAKEUP Got a party or special event coming up and want to make an impression? Try multi-coloured makeup. You’ll need the right palette and colourful mascara to get the colours saturated enough to make your eyes really stand out. DO: make a bold statement when you’re up for a fun night. DON’T: wear to your next job interview.
Darker nail polish peels faster than pastel and nude shades, due to its higher pigmentation. If you love dark nails, try using lighter strokes when applying and apply three thin coats rather than one thick coat for a longer lasting finish.

Melbourne CBD at sunrise reflected in the Yarra River
MELBOURNE BY NIGHT A kayaking tour is a unique way to see Melbourne. By Mary Brazell, AAP.
t’s a Friday night, and I’m enjoying some fish and chips on the river with friends. The lights of the Bolte Bridge twinkle on the water. I am on a moonlight kayaking tour of Melbourne, and this dinner stop will provide the energy I need to paddle myself up the Yarra River. When visiting Melbourne, many people tend to go upwards to get the best view. But Kayak Melbourne allows locals and visitors an experience reminiscent of the region’s original settlers.
Our tour starts just before sunset at the Docklands precinct, with Paul our guide giving us a safety briefing and teaching us the proper paddling technique. Our group tonight includes a group of six British tourists and a group of western suburbs teachers, who like a bit of a singalong. We carry our kayaks, which are built for sea crossings, down to the pier. I watch with amusement as the couples awkwardly get into their boats. Suddenly it’s my turn. Once I’m in, a group of grunting dragon-boat rowers being
coached by a stern-voiced man powers past. Our group looks on with concern – we didn’t sign up for a workout. At first, I struggle to get the paddling technique down pat. More water goes onto my lap than remains in the river. From water level, you can really see how much the Melbourne skyline has changed. The last time I was here, I don’t remember Docklands being so tall. The river is calm and quiet, except for some boisterous locals having a barbecue on a floating donut. We reach the other side of the bay for our waterfront dinner experience, which is included into the tour. So that we don’t float away, all our kayaks are tied up. My co-pilot, James, is one of the tour operators, so I’m in safe hands. As you’d expect, he’s a damn good paddler. Not wanting to rob him of his livelihood, I let him do most of the work. While cruising along the Yarra, Paul tells us tidbits about the harbour and its origins, while James and I discuss more ‘important’ issues – football. One of the aims of the night tour is that the kayaks make it up the river with enough time to see the hourly Gas Brigade show at Crown Casino. With the minutes ticking by, we quickly row underneath Kings Bridge just in time. Even on the water, the heat from the towers warm me up. It is time for us to return to land. We berth
our kayaks at the rowing sheds opposite Federation Square. Despite being 9.30pm, the city is just getting warmed up, with many bars along the Yarra full with revellers celebrating their Friday night. To my amazement, the teachers plan to keep partying. I on the other hand can’t wait to get home so I can finally use the line I’ve been preparing all evening. “I’ve just paddled into Melbourne, and boy are my arms tired.” * The writer travelled as a guest of Visit Victoria.
IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE Virgin and Jetstar have direct flights to Melbourne from Sunshine Coast Airport. STAYING THERE Oaks on Collins is located in the heart of Melbourne’s business and financial centre. Offering cosmopolitan New York-style apartments and suites, Oaks is within walking distance of Southbank, Docklands and Etihad Stadium. PLAYING THERE Kayak Melbourne runs a variety of kayaking tours. The moonlight tour runs from Victoria Harbour in the Docklands precinct to the Rowing Sheds opposite Federation Square and includes the ‘on the water’ dining experience for $99 per person.

OUR 50TH YEAR
SUNCOAST – A GRAND VISION FOR THE SIXTIES While the Sunshine Coast celebrates 50 years since its name was officially gazetted, a small community that played a part in deciding the name, celebrates its own golden anniversary, writes Dot Whittington.
A sign on Bli Bli Road directs visitors to Suncoast; Marcoola pool and kiosk in its latter years
hen Rex Testro acquired leases to all the land between Coolum and Mudjimba in the early 1960s, he called his project Suncoast Developments. At the centre of that development was Marcoola where, on July 2, 1967 – a month before the name Sunshine Coast became official on August 1 – residents formed the Marcoola Progress Association to “push forward with some real amenities for the future”. By the end of its first year, it had 72 members. Testro had made it difficult though, for the founding fathers who were seeking to give the coastal strip from Caloundra to Noosa a name more inspired than North Coast. Suncoast was the obvious choice but the name had been taken at least five years earlier by Testro’s land development company. After consideration of other alternatives, they settled on the name Sunshine Coast. Land sales in the Suncoast Development where “no allotment is further than 400 yards from the surf” had got underway in earnest in 1965, promising “all roads will lead to Suncoast”. There was a new “high-speed
highway”, a direct road from Toowoomba bypassing Ipswich and Brisbane and the aerodrome “is part of the development”. For Maroochy Shire Council, there was the matter of finding a name for the new beach locale at the heart of Suncoast. Shire chairman Dave Low had given the job to councillors Harry Brown and Eddie De Vere, who noted that it was halfway between Maroochydore and Coolum. They decided to take a little bit of each and came up with Marcoola. The Marcoola Progress Association’s first annual meeting on June 1968 could report a great victory. It had successfully fought off a beach sand mining proposal to “keep our beaches and foreshores in their natural condition”. The venture was rejected by the Gympie Mining warden as not being in the public interest. The group’s first president Dudley Young, who was to remain a member for 33 years, also reported the push for a telephone link. “The co-axial cable to Coolum via Marcoola is to be laid shortly. Volunteer linesmen from your association rigged up the
Live a colourful life at Aura
old temporary telephone line to Bli Bli but this line has been consistently rejected by the PMG.” It was noted that tragedy had struck because of this. A young boy had drowned and a residence burnt down as there was no means to call the ambulance or fire brigade. On the bright side, he reported that electricity supply to the second release had been improved and street kerbing and guttering completed in the kiosk area. Drainage remained “appalling” as “it appears nobody owns this problem”. “Suncoast Development Pty Ltd advised us of a change of ownership in December in 1967 (Testro had sold to Felix Parry, another Melbourne businessman) and ... nothing further has eventuated and in fact no one seems to know who is responsible for this area.” This was to become a recurring theme as the Sunshine Coast grew. During the 1960s, Marcoola’s greatest claim to fame though, was its modern kidney-shaped swimming pool beside the stylish kiosk. It was free to the public, a big deal at a time when swimming pools were still a rare sight – and it had a diving board. The Marcoola Surf Life Saving Club was formed in 1969 and the nine-hole Suncoast Beach Golf Club opened in 1976 on land leased for a peppercorn from the Suncoast Development Company which sold it to the club in 1983 for a bargain basement price. The big event though, was the opening of Felix Parry’s dream tourist destination, Surfair, in November 1971, planned as part of his City of Suncoast development. It was a hit among the locals who turned up for weddings, parties, anything during the 1970s. Marcoola Progress Association will celebrate its 50th anniversary on July 1.
THIS MONTH IN HISTORY
The first Buderim Mountain Post Office opened on June 1, 1884. Land had been cleared and settlement began in about 1870. A receiving office had opened in about 1874. The building now known as the Old Post Office (pictured) was built in 1935 and is the oldest building in Buderim.
DID YOU KNOW? • Businessman Des Scanlan, best known for having built the Big Cow at Kullangoor, first floated the idea of a coastal city in 1980. He said a time when three local shires would become a city was inevitable. They were amalgamated to form the Sunshine Coast Regional Council in 2008, although Noosa withdrew in 2013. • Yaroomba was first developed in 1953 and was named Coronation Beach in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation that year. The name was changed in 1961 to Yaroomba, meaning “surf on the beach”. 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. If you have any historical photos or stories email email@example.com.
Aura is a vibrant and energetic new city designed to inspire and attract opportunity. It’s a place where world class, contemporary living meets a relaxed Sunshine Coast lifestyle and where commerce, culture and the coast come together for a quality of life that once felt, will never be forgotten.

Mark Davidson, Ord Minnett Buderim.
BANKING SECTOR SINGLED OUT
his key market sector began dropping ahead of the Federal Budget, as rumours swirled of a new banking tax. The Federal Government revealed a new six basis point levy on the liabilities of the four major banks and Macquarie Group, which the Treasury estimates will generate $1.6 billion in its first full year. Treasurer Scott Morrison defended the levy on the grounds that it forces the major banks to internalise the cost of the government’s implicit guarantee, which should ultimately level the competitive playing field. Despite the considerable attention this has received, in our view, the notional 2–4 per cent drag to earnings will not specifically materialise, as we expect the banks will inevitably re-price loans to
mitigate the impact. Upcoming APRA announcements on ‘unquestionably strong’, mortgage risk weights, and a fluid and dynamically priced deposit market, all provide opportunities to offset the impact of the levy. In our view, the re-pricing across the portfolio will not provide sufficient ‘switching incentive’ to ‘level the playing field’ with smaller institutions. Furthermore, the higher cost of funds also highlights the need to optimise funding usage, which will likely lead to further shedding of low-returning business. Given the proposed July 1 commencement date of the bank levy, there
“The levy overshadowed the recent bank reporting season” will only be a one basis point drag on net interest margins evident in the current half-year earnings across the major banks. Accordingly, banks have ‘time on their side’ to assess the implications and competitive responses over the coming six months or so. The levy overshadowed the recent bank reporting season. Consensus forecasts were beginning to factor in margin expansion due to recent re-pricing. In comparison, we had
adopted a more conservative outlook, factoring in a slight reduction in margins, with recent re-pricing a factor in a stabilising outlook. Our view aligned with actual results. ANZ and Westpac reported weaker margins on higher funding costs, while National Australia Bank delivered a flat margin which actually benefited from deposits. Looking ahead to the current half, we expect a one to two basis point increase in margins, as the benefits from re-pricing begin to work through the banks’ profit and loss statements to offset ongoing headwinds. Our 2018 forecasts are about three per cent below consensus (based on conservative margins), but dividends still look sound (supported by capital adequacy ratios of around 10 per cent), suggesting that bank dividend yields of six per cent may once again prove attractive. With ANZ off 16 per cent, Commonwealth off 10 per cent, National 14 per cent and Westpac 15 per cent, is it time to buy yet? A good question, but I would certainly be keeping an eye out for good opportunities if there is further price weaknesses.

NEW JOBS BOOST The Coast will benefit from a $1 million program to drive innovation, economic opportunities and create new jobs as a result of a co-funded partnership between the State Government, Sunshine Coast Council and 26 partners. Speaking at the Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast last week, Leeanne Enoch said the funding was the first allocation from the $6 million Advancing Regional Innovation Program. “It will encourage entrepreneurs, consumers, business leaders and key industries in regional areas to embrace new ideas, showcase local innovative businesses and work together to build new opportunities and jobs for their local communities.” The region will receive $500,000 across three years to collaborate with and encourage entrepreneurs, business leaders and key industries to work together.

TRASH TEST DUMMIES TAKE KIDS ON A HILARIOUS RIDE
Who ever thought you could have so much fun with a wheelie bin? Jamie Bretman, Jack Coleman and Simon Wright are highly skilled circus performers who can trash talk with the best of them and they are set to showcase their award-winning show as the Trash Test Dummies on the Sunshine Coast. Bretman says the trio met at the National Institute of Circus Arts and graduated together, but they came from very diverse backgrounds. Bretman is a former youth worker, Coleman was a competitive gymnast and Wright was a national level swimmer who fans might also recognise as the unicycling postman from ABC Kids show Hoopla Doopla. In their final year at the institute, they were required to pull together a performance using just three wheelie bins and a brief to
create characters that were street cleaners tasked with cleaning up graffiti. “Through that process, we basically created two 10-minute acts and the show itself wasn’t seen as a very good show at the time. People did come out saying it was really refreshing and enjoyed what we had created with these garbage bins, so we decided we wanted to try and continue working with it and transformed the two acts into one and performed at cabaret nights and festivals.” They have since performed in China, Hong Kong, Bahrain, the UK, America and New Zealand and are now embarking on a rural Australian tour that will see them arrive at the Lake Kawana Community Centre. “Overhearing someone say they can’t wait for the weekend, or they can’t wait to retire makes me feel so lucky I have the job I have. We spread joy around the world, we finish the show and people are laughing, kids are running around,” he says. “We take them away from reality for an hour and it’s a really rewarding feeling.” The Trash Test Dummies will be at Lake Kawana Community Centre at 10am and 12.30pm on June 28. Tickets are $15 and available at scvenuesandevents.com.au. Or, head to page 9 for your chance to win tickets through My Weekly Preview.
CRUISING WITH COOL TUNES Last year, Bearfoot brought the good vibes with a sold-out yacht and an afternoon that has been recorded as one of A Set Adrift’s finest sails. And now they are gearing up to do it again. A Set Adrift has been promoting original music on a catamaran for the past 24 months with regular sell-out events. Each month sees a vast array of nationally touring and local acts perform on deck while sailing around the Sunshine Coast’s waters. Tickets include cheese, craft beers, two hours of sailing and two sets from Bearfoot.
A Set Adrift featuring Bearfoot will depart from Mooloolaba Yacht Club at 12.30pm on June 17 at 12.30pm. Tickets are $60 and are available at eventfinda.com.au.
COUNTRY MUSIC GREATS JOIN FORCES As individual artists, Adam Harvey and Beccy Cole have stayed at the forefront of Australian country music for close to two decades, each with an impressive list of awards and top selling albums. The dynamic performers have joined forces and are taking their favourite list of country duets to the studio. Adam Harvey and Beccy Cole will be at The Events Centre, Caloundra on June 22 at 8pm. Tickets are $49 adult, $47 pensioner and $25 child two to 14 years. VIP premium tickets are available for $79 from theeventscentre.com.au.

SPREAD THE FACTS, NOT THE FLU
Queensland Health is urging Queenslanders to get serious about protecting themselves, their loved ones and anyone else they come into contact with against the flu. Queensland’s Acting Chief Health Officer Dr Sonya Bennett says influenza is not the same as a common cold and can sometimes lead to serious complications. “In 2016, there were 23,261 laboratory confirmed influenza notifications in Queensland, resulting in 3,197 public hospital admissions, of which 402 were admitted to ICU,” she says. “And so far this year (as at May 14, 2017), there have been 3800 notifications of laboratory confirmed influenza; with 527 admissions to public hospitals, including 47 to ICU.”
The Spread the Facts, Not the Flu campaign, which has kicked off this week, reminds Queenslanders to: Get vaccinated – vaccination each year is the best protection against flu. Stay home when you are sick and avoid spreading the flu. Wash your hands thoroughly – it takes at least 15 seconds to wash your hands properly. Limit the spread of germs by using a tissue or coughing/sneezing into your elbow. Dispose of used tissues as the flu virus can live outside the human body for a number of hours. “We all know the flu is highly contagious and primarily spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes,” Bennett says “When a person has the flu and coughs or sneezes, the droplets containing the virus are expelled rapidly and can travel one to two metres.” “The droplets then settle onto surfaces, such as telephones and door knobs, and can be passed from hands to the nose, mouth or eyes. “People with influenza can be infectious to others from 24 hours before they display symptoms, until a week after the start of symptoms. “The good news is you can help protect yourself and others by getting vaccinated and practicing good hygiene.”
$1 MILLION IN GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR INNOVATIVE IDEAS THAT HELP SENIORS The search for Queensland’s most creative, age-friendly ideas is on with the opening of a new grants program to help create more inclusive communities. The Queensland Government is set to commit $1 million to the grants program to be made available through open funding rounds to seed fund community projects involving partnerships between local government, community and other organisations to co-develop, implement and promote innovative age-friendly projects. The Advancing Queensland: Age-friendly
community grants will range from $25,000 up to $100,000 to help councils, organisations, not-for-profit groups and the community turn big ideas into action to help make life better for seniors. Seniors Minister Coralee O’Rourke urges Queenslanders to start brainstorming. “We need big thinkers who share our age-friendly vision to create concrete outcomes for older people,” O’Rourke says. “This first round of grants will focus on transport, housing and outdoor spaces – if we can help seniors in these areas we will help
them stay involved in their communities – a good thing for all Queenslanders. “This is Queensland’s time to shine and to lead the way in new thinking. We need to be passionate and curious about ways we can make long-term changes and it is my hope that these grants mean that people will be brave and put their bold ideas forward.” Applications for the first round of the Advancing Queensland: Age-friendly community grants program close at 5pm, Friday, June 16. Visit qld.gov.au/agefriendlygrants.

SOCIAL CALENDAR BUSY FOR THIS SINGLE BLOKE
kydiving, shark cage diving and racehorses are a few of Noel Moore’s loves, along with living at Nature’s Edge Buderim. “I never looked anywhere else, Nature’s Edge just satisfied all my requirements. There was nothing I could fault about it and having been here for six months now, I still feel the same,” Moore says. Previously a catering manager for Qantas in Melbourne, Moore had been visiting his nephew in Kiels Mountain for years and loved the climate and lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast. On one trip he dropped into the over 50s lifestyle village, had the grand tour and said he “got the wow factor”. “I loved the homes and the forest and saw four or five display homes and I could have lived in any one of them.” Before he flew out that night for Tullamarine he rang three real estate agents to put his home on the market in Melbourne. It settled the same day as his home in Nature’s Edge Buderim and he moved in on December 9, 2016. One of Moore’s passions is horse racing and the horse he and a group of his friends own won the Port Adelaide Cup in May this year. The horse was named Time to Test as
“I loved the homes and the forest and saw four or five display homes…”
homage to Mr Ted Whitten, legendary Australian AFL player and icon who died from prostate cancer in August 1995 aged 62. The EJ Whitten foundation was established in honour of Whitten and was created to deliver the message to men over 50 to check for prostate cancer. Moore says he has such great neighbours within the over 50s community
and loved the fact there is little or no maintenance on his home, which allows him free time to enjoy his surroundings. “When the leisure centre is finished it will be even better. I’m looking forward to the social side of it. I have started playing bowls with some of the other home owners and I’m looking forward to having our own bowling green, pool and a gathering place.” Moore lives on his own and enjoys the Living Alone and Loving It group established within Nature’s Edge and says it’s good fun. “It’s a social occasion and an outing and I’m all for that,” he says. Noel loves surprising his friends from the south by showing them around the over 50s community and watching their surprise: “They initially think it’s a traditional retirement village when they hear where I live, until they drive in and get the wow factor.”

MASSAGE YOUR EGO The most fierce rivalry in the motoring world just got more intense with the release of BMW’s new 5 Series executive sedan. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.
assage sir? Lumbar, back or shoulders? Firmer? Or more gentle. Just say your preference. How about the ambient lighting? Too bright? These LEDs are so easy to adjust. Or would you prefer another colour, perhaps? Bronze? Lilac? We have 11 to choose from. No, this is not some swanky spa or luxury health retreat on a remote Thai island. This is a car. BMW’s 540i – the latest iteration of the
German maker’s iconic luxury executive sedan. A car that thinks for itself, will park itself and, with the barest of human inputs, will pretty much drive itself as well. It advances the 5 Series breed – and quite possibly has lifted the bar for this most competitive of categories. Not surprisingly, then, this car also resets the bar for 5 Series pricing – with even the entry-level model (the $93,900, turbo-diesel 520d) about 10 per cent more expensive than its predecessor. BMW argues that is more
than offset by additional inclusions. Get to the pointy end, though, and the prices rise even more sharply. Our 540i test machine – the temporary 5 Series flagship until some V8 models arrive later in the year – will set you back $136,900 plus onroads. But if that kind of price tag doesn’t send you into meltdown, this car is a pretty clever way to spend it. The all-new 5 feels more luxurious, more exclusive and more technologically brilliant all round than any model to go before it. The latest version of BMW’s iDrive system, accessed via a clever, tile-style 10.5-inch control screen, or by using gestures or voice control, lets you instruct the plush Napa leather seats to massage just about any part of you as well as heating or cooling the seat depending on the season. Connectivity has become the buzzword in this category and the Beemer does it with style. A busy day ahead, sir? Perhaps you’d like to check your emails, dictate a text message or make a diary entry. But this welter technology complements, rather than defines, the qualities of the 5 Series. It remains as much a driver’s car as this model has always been. It edges closer to fully autonomous driving with a total of six cameras, five radar sensors and a dozen other ultrasonic sensors dotted around the vehicle. They inform driver aides stretching from lane-keeping, speed
monitoring and regulation, auto-acceleration and braking to collision avoidance and impact mitigation. Our 540i test machine arrived with the M-Sport enhancement pack. Despite its impressive 0-100km/h benchmark of just over five seconds, it returns decent fuelefficiency of 6.7L/100km, thanks to fuelsaving measures including grille slats that open only when extra ventilation is needed – and close to improve aerodynamics. As for the mundane, everyday stuff like the driving experience? Well, BMW has always done that well and the 5 Series builds on that tradition. It remains a very rewarding, engaging thing to drive.
BMW 540i HOW BIG? A full-sized executive sedan with ample room. Cargo space is a useful 530 litres. HOW FAST? It’s seriously quick without feeling overtly so. The speed limit arrives in a tick over five seconds.
HOW THIRSTY? Despite its impressive power stats, it sips just 6.7L/100km. If you really want to avoid the petrol pump, buy the 520d which achieves an amazing 4.1L/100km. HOW MUCH? At $139,600 the 540i provides plenty of bang, and gadgets, for your buck.

HALCYON LAKESIDE BRINGS UP TRIO OF MILESTONES
PARKLAKES 2: A VIBRANT & CONNECTED COMMUNITY
trong and sustained sales activity at over 50s developer Halcyon’s third Sunshine Coast lifestyle community, Halcyon Lakeside, has seen the company score some impressive milestones. The $100 million Halcyon Lakeside community recently has experienced a record run of sales, amassing transactions worth $22 million in April alone, making it the fastest-selling over 50s community in Queensland. Halcyon Lakeside’s popularity with buyers has brought the total number of Halcyon residents on the Sunshine Coast to
“We appreciate that the modern retiree or baby boomer is more discerning…” 1000, with Halcyon Landing, also at Bli Bli, and Halcyon Parkside, in Caloundra, now well-established and thriving communities. Halcyon joint managing director Bevan Geissmann said the achievement was testament to Halcyon’s ability to consistently deliver a residential product that matched the needs and expectations of the over 50s.
40 My Weekly Preview | June 16, 2017
“We appreciate that the modern retiree, or baby boomer, is more discerning and sophisticated than previous generations,” Geissmann says. “Our communities not only deliver luxurious, low-maintenance and energyefficient residences but also have superb facilities that reflect the diverse interests, activities and pursuits of the baby boomer generation. “We have combined our formula with the Sunshine Coast’s subtropical climate and enviable lifestyle, and as a result we continue to find great market traction in this region.” Construction of Lakeside’s multimilliondollar recreation club, Halcyon’s most comprehensive leisure offering to date on the Sunshine Coast, is nearing completion. Halcyon Lakeside is within the masterplanned Parklakes 2 community, and boasts more than 450 metres of uninterrupted lake frontage. Just 15 lakefront homes remain in the current Lifestyle release of the 231-home staged and gated development.

here is a real confidence in the Sunshine Coast market and the solid demand for land at Parklakes 2 highlights that both locals and buyers from other regions are attracted to the lifestyle on offer and they are looking to build their dream home. “We are finding that our buyers have done their research and even before they come to see us many have decided to build at Parklakes 2; it’s a lifestyle choice for most people. The majority of people want the choice to build their perfect home on a block with plenty of space or find a house and land package right for them” Developer Robert Flipp says. With Parklakes 2 recently releasing their final stage in the estate they are offering premium affordable land with views of Mount Coolum and lots from 400 to 1200 square metres are selling from $296,500 and house and land packages from $548,000. As a vibrant and growing region it comes as no surprise that Bli Bli recently was rated the number one Sunshine Coast Property Hotspot as reported in Money Magazine February 2017. Over $1 billion in investments throughout the area and numerous infrastructure developments under way there is even more to come including: • New P-12 Catholic school opening in January 2019 • Parklakes 2 one hectare central park (now open)
• Parklakes 2 cafe/tapas bar (opening August) • New $20-million Bli Bli village precinct opening soon. The vibrant community of Parklakes 2 will have 440 homes and with central amenities such as the one-hectare park, sports complex, lakes, cafe/tapas bar and public transport; buyers are attracted to the lifestyle on offer. Surrounded by 20 hectares of forest with walking tracks for the community to discover the diverse range of bird and wildlife native to the area, people feel the calm at Parklakes 2 while taking in the views to Mount Coolum and enjoying the serenity of the lakes and open spaces. The Developers Robert Flipp and Peter Shadforth share a vision for the area that ensures conservation of the environment while also creating a strong coastal community mindset. “It’s the community spirit underlining this project that makes it so special; ensuring investment stays within the local region. In keeping with our community focus it was vital for us to use local suppliers, consultants and contractors to help create our vision and we are very proud of the outcome,” Flipp says.

AROUND THE WORLD
The former home of Bulgarian Countess Nadia Farber is now up for grabs for a cool $20 million.
f life in the Virgin Islands has been a long term goal, you now have the opportunity to own one of the most iconic properties in St Croix. Known as the Castle, the Caribbean-style home sits atop a mountain and boasts 360-degree views. The property was built by Countess Nadia Farber and her husband Sid and was completed in 1989. Influenced by the Moorish and Oriental architecture of Farber’s homeland in Bulgaria as well as her travel destinations, the main residence and gatekeeper’s cottage comprise nearly 930m2 and include a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms. With genius foresight, the countess continued to acquire land around the home, securing 102 acres that includes the entire hill top all the way down to the beach. Considered St Croix’s most desirable location, the estate’s sheltered lagoon is complete with a pier for arrivals and departures by sea. This is all opposite the spectacular Buck Island National Park. The property is on the market for $20.12 million through John Foster Real Estate with global marketing by Christie’s International Real Estate.

Okey dokey, the winner of this year’s Fiji Pro will be decided by the time you read this. My prediction, if the surf is big, is Mr Slater, John John, Fanning and Sebastian Zietz. From here they head to J-Bay then on to Tahiti. Let’s hope for pumping waves and no sharks. Trivia time: did you know that more people are killed by bee stings and lightning than by shark attacks. Just saying. Now, hopefully you guys scored some waves last weekend? Was a bit wonky where I was, but still surfable. This weekend, Sunday is looking good with light winds. My suggestion is to head north and look for you own private sandbank. Points seems to be quite crowded these days so this is a good opportunity to find some space. Now, a few of you guys have been a little greedy in the surf – you know who you are. Dial it back a bit and let the kids have a crack. I have heard of a few nasty incidents recently concerning kids and I don’t think that will end well for those concerned. Moving on, Indo has been receiving back-to-back swells of late so if you are heading over this week, I hope you have a cracker. Take care peeps and beware of bees, lightning and the occasional shark.

The new moon signals that it’s time for a new domestic chapter. So family should be your number one priority, and your motto for the week is from birthday great and acting icon Meryl Streep: “My family really does come first. It always has and always will.”
Courtesy of Venusian and Neptunian vibes, it’s a wonderful week to embrace your creativity! Be inspired by singer Carly Simon: “There’s always a creative side to me, even when it’s quiet musically … like painting or decorating or planting a garden.”
Tuesday’s Mercury-Uranus connection is terrific for brainstorming innovative ideas! Your communication skills are firing on Wednesday, but there’s also a tendency to scatter your energy all over the place. So pace yourself.
CANCER [Jun 22-Jul 23]
LEO [Jul 24-Aug 23]
VIRGO [Aug 24-Sep 23]
It’s a fantastic week for crabs! Mercury moves into your sign (from Wednesday until July 6) when you’ll feel more rational and less moody than usual. The week will certainly progress better if you are more proactive, and less reactive.
Stop wasting time trying to control situations. Wonderful opportunities are around, but they’re not obvious. They are hidden in unexpected places, waiting for you to discover them. At the moment some of your best work is behind the scenes.
Don’t let vague worries do your head in Virgo. Stressing about things that might happen is not the sensible way to go. This week the sun and Mercury encourage you to stop worrying and start doing. Concentrate on positive changes you can make.
LIBRA [Sep 24-Oct 23]
SCORPIO [Oct 24-Nov 22]
SAGITTARIUS [Nov 23-Dec 21]
Venus and Neptune favour romance, friendship and fun on Tuesday and it’s also a terrific time to socialise with colleagues, as you mix business with pleasure. Librans are clever and capable but are you confident enough for big time success?
The new moon boosts your brain power so it’s time to read, research or study something new. Planning your next business trip or weekend escape is also a good idea. With Venus in your partnership zone, do your best to smooth over problems.
This week sassy Sagittarians can expect a fresh start involving loot or lust, as the new moon activates your joint finances and intimacy zone. It’s also a fabulous time to research a subject that has always fascinated you.
CAPRICORN [Dec 22-Jan 20]
AQUARIUS [Jan 21-Feb 19]
PISCES [Feb 20-Mar 20]
Venus sends a lucky break via social media. So make the most of any opportunities that come your way. Mercury shifts into your relationship zone so, from Wednesday onwards, you’ll be more inclined to keep the lines of communication open.
It’s time to be mentally and physically active Aquarius! Tuesday’s Mercury-Uranus connection favours fresh solutions. And, with the new moon and Mars activating your wellbeing zone, incorporate more exercise into your daily routine.
Do you underestimate your creative talents? This week Venus, Neptune and the new moon all encourage you to express your creativity for all the world to see. Don’t be shy! As fellow Piscean Steve Jobs said, “Creativity is just connecting things.”

THE LAST WORD
FEEDBACK ALWAYS WELCOME Richard O’Leary cherishes the relationship he has with his readers, whether they agree with him or not.
fter reading several of your columns, I wrote you off as just another left-wing loser. However your last two columns have given me hope that there is an intelligent, pragmatic soul behind that facade.” This was how one of my readers began an email to me recently. He obviously wasn’t taking Anthony Trollope’s advice: “This at least should be a rule through the letter-writing world: that no angry letter be posted till four-and-twenty hours will have elapsed since it was written.” But I’m glad my correspondent decided to take the road that was less politically correct because that path was grassy and wanted wear. He subsequently invited me to catch up for a coffee, I haven’t done so yet, but I’m sure I will at some stage. His email got me thinking about the relationship between the writer and the
reader, and it’s one that I cherish. I get my fair share of complaints, but there are a few plaudits thrown in as well, and occasionally as my original example shows, I get a mix of good and bad. There are regulars who I now know quite well. Some started by correcting my grammar or factual errors, but over time they wrote to
“I wrote you off as just another left-wing loser” me about the columns themselves and how they could relate to them, sharing their experiences along the way. And our relationships have been richer for it. Regardless of the correspondent’s take on my column, I always try to write back. It seems the polite thing to do.
I acknowledge their argument if they have one that differs from mine, but I don’t try too hard to persuade them, I doubt if an email will do what my column failed to achieve. There are rare instances where the response to one of my columns is a racist or sexist rant – I’ll usually leave those alone in the belief they just wanted to get it off their chest. There is the odd occasion when I simply forget to reply, which brings me to the mea culpa of this memorandum. A few weeks ago, one of my colleagues passed on a lovely letter to which I have yet to reply. So Gwen from Buderim, please accept my sincere apologies for the lack of a response, it was such a delight to get handwritten correspondence, and I wish you all the best for the rest of the year. firstname.lastname@example.org

inner city. another view. With over 26 hectares of nature reserves and parkland you could be forgiven for thinking you were viewing a scene from a country estate, nowhere near a city. Yet this lakeside park is within a short walk of Maroochydore’s city heart. Our Claremont Precinct features stunning, direct, north facing water homesites, but it also has a great range of park front terrace and laneway homesites and more of our innovative urban allotments.
One look at Claremont’s Precinct Plan will reveal just how special this enclave within Sunshine Cove will become. Almost every homesite will have either a water, or parkland view to enjoy. This weekend take in the views of Sunshine Cove for yourself, have a wander along the lakeside boardwalks and pathways and on through to our parklands. See what takes your fancy... waterfront or parkside? And if you’d like to see more come talk to us.
