FROM THE EDITOR
’m in debt to Ray Martin. He is, after all, one of the reasons I have this great job. The long-time journalist, together with Jana Wendt, was inspirational and played an integral role in shaping my career. The nightly news bulletin was always on in the Holznagel household and, while other children were watching The Simpsons, I was watching 60 Minutes and Midday with Ray Martin. I had no hope really. It is an honour to have Ray – a five-time Gold Logie winner and Member of the Order of Australia, in this week’s magazine. He is a true Australian gentleman who overcame the odds of a tough childhood to become an ambassador for our country and the voice for thousands of people. Both this week’s cover story and our profile story have left me feeling a little nostalgic. In Profile, Leigh Robshaw chats with Caroline Jane Knight who is the great niece of English novelist Jane Austen. Caroline has recently broken her silence on her past to reveal her connection to the literary great, who penned works such as Pride and Prejudice and Emma. Now, Caroline has written a book entitled My Austen Heritage and is set to visit the Coast as a guest of the Voices on the Coast festival. Also this edition, we have our home feature, and the greatest Coast properties on the market.

HOME TRUTHS Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Yaroomba. It’s paradise. First job? A promotions role at Mix FM, driving the Coast Cruiser. It was the job of a lifetime for a 17-yearold with a head full of dreams and a new driver’s licence. What are you currently working on? A design for a new home build on Kawana Island. It is a large architectural home for a gorgeous family with six lively kids. Your family includes… My husband, Hayden, and our five kids – six-year-old Winter Jools, five-year-old Piper Juliet, four-year-old Frankie Juno, two-year-old Maverick Jak and one-year-old Elliot Jorge.
Courtney Burns BIO
Rick Burns’ eldest daughter has an unquestionable pedigree in the construction industry, and energy in spades – as well as her roles as the sales manager at PJ Burns Builder, Courtney is a busy mum of five. While she’s had a few stints living out of the region, including two months in Longreach and 18 months in Childers, Courtney knows how lucky she is to call the Sunshine Coast home.

First car? A 1984 white Volvo station wagon with shagpile seat covers and a dated paint job patched up with homemade flowers cut out of contact. It was the only car in our house with the roof racks dad needed to go surfing. He got some looks. Favourite book? I’d probably say Z for Zachariah by Robert C O’Brien. I read it in year 11 and have read it over and over again since. I have no idea why I like it so much, but if you haven’t read it, do. It won’t take long; it’s only 196 pages.
home on my own. I was 17 and had built my first home at Currimundi. It quickly turned into the worst day of my life when some so-called friends flooded it at the house warming. You live and learn. Best advice you’ve been given? I have a handwritten note on my noticeboard at work, written by my grandfather only two weeks before his death in May 2006 that says, ‘Indecision causes more emotional stress than making the wrong decision.’ I love it. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Marcoola Beach. It’s my favourite because it isn’t crowded and the sand seems cleaner. Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? The Spirit House, Yandina and to the top of Mount Coolum.
“Indecision causes more emotional stress than making the wrong decision”
If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? I’d fix the traffic between here and Brisbane. Any commuter would understand my pain, and I only have to do it once or twice a week. Your greatest regret? Not spending more time picking my grandfather’s brain while I had the chance.
What achievement are you most proud of? The rubber band ball on my office desk. And my kids.
What are you reading now? Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich. I’m a few behind. I’ve been busy. Stacked under this is the other unread Janet Evanovich titles in the series, two Harlan Coben books and a Lee Child (for when I feel like reading in short, choppy sentences, which is often).
You are happiest when? I’m at home on Saturday morning, sitting on our deck with a coffee, and the kids are happy. It’s a much briefer moment during soccer season.
Favourite song? Can I have two? Hands Down by Dashboard Confessional (I walked down the aisle to that song) and Logo Te Pate from the Moana soundtrack. I’m the embarrassing mum.
How do you deal with your frustrations? I listen to music, loudly.
Best day in your life? You’re expecting me to say my wedding day, or the day each of my kids was born, so I won’t. Even though they were all amazing days that I’d love to do over. Probably the day I moved into my first
What frustrates you the most? People who don’t take pride in what they do.
If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Realise how happy and beautiful you are. Don’t waste one second of time hoping for more. At that age, I had everything I could have wanted. I still do, but am lucky enough to realise it now.

A LIFE LESS ORDINARY Ray Martin has interviewed thousands of people around the world in a long and varied career, but few subjects were like Fred Hollows, a straight-talking subject who became a firm friend. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
“He could be gruff and argumentative and in the next breath he would have the best bedside manner”
Fred Hollows gave his last interview to Ray Martin Image: Fred Hollows Foundation
f there is one thing Ray Martin can say about his career, it’s that no day has been the same. Martin may be one of the country’s most decorated journalists, but the five-time Gold Logie winner, Member of the Order of Australia and Centenary Medal recipient is as approachable as they come. Relaxing in his Mount Coolum holiday home, Martin is on cloud nine. He has recently taken some time off work to go on “baby watch” with wife Dianne and daughter Jenna in Sydney, and welcomed his first grandchild, a boy, into the world. The Martins are no strangers to the Coast, having spent many holidays for the past two decades at Coolum before deciding to buy a house near the golf course at the base of the mountain. “It’s a wonderful country town and you get the best of both worlds in the sense that it’s nice and relaxed – you can get around in a pair of shorts and a T-shirt and people say g’day and no one bothers me. I like the pace. I like the climate. There’s nothing not to like,” he tells My Weekly Preview. Martin, who received a star on Caloundra’s Walk of Stars in early 2007, was born Raymond Grace and grew up in a nomadic life with his three sisters and a drunken and abusive father. When he was 12 years old, his mother

left to escape the cycle of debt, alcohol and homelessness and they assumed the surname Martin to prevent their father from finding them. Martin went on to work as an engineer before leaving the industry to study history at the University of Sydney. It was in his fourth year of a teaching degree that he “jumped the fence” and joined the ABC as a cadet journalist in 1965. It was a decision that changed the course of his life and led to a career that spanned 52 years, has had him travelling “a million-odd” air miles in more than 100 countries to interview 10,000 people “in round figures”. A few years after joining the ABC, Martin was posted to New York as its correspondent and covered anti-Vietnam War protests, presidential elections, and the Olympic Games among other news and current affairs. He moved to Channel Nine in 1978 to work alongside Ian Leslie and George Negus on the launch of 60 Minutes. When he and Dianne had their first child, Martin was working away up to four months of the year and he decided to take on a new project, Midday with Ray Martin, which was a world-first 90-minute live show filmed in the middle of the day. He later moved on to anchor A Current Affair and left full-time television in 2011.
Martin now takes on passion projects as they arise and will feature in his first major photographic exhibition in Ken Duncan’s Sydney gallery this month, while continuing to make regular appearances on The Project and gearing up for his next TV venture – a show titled Next – where he will interview the who’s who of the science world in a question-and-answer-style program that focuses on “where the world is going”. He is also in the middle of writing a book about the late Fred Hollows, the celebrated humanitarian who set out on a quest to
“[Coolum is] nice and relaxed – you can get around in a pair of shorts and a T-shirt and people say g’day” restore sight to those who are needlessly blind in developing countries. Martin says Hollows is among his “holy trinity” of icons he has connected with throughout his career. “In the more than 10,000 interviews in my career, my top shelf is Fred Hollows, Sir Donald Bradman, and David Attenborough,” he says.
“They are beyond question the leaders of their fields. I have done 30 shows with David over the last 40 years and as a cricket nut, meeting Don Bradman was like going to heaven. To get the last interview with him was more than that. He was an exceptional character and there is no doubt that he was the greatest cricketer and also an extraordinary man. “Then there’s Fred. He’s at the top of the chain.” Martin first met Hollows while working for 60 Minutes in 1980, when Hollows was finishing The National Trachoma and Eye Health Program in the Northern Territory with his wife Gabi. Martin was there to do a story to raise awareness about the terrible living conditions and eye disease in rural and remote Aboriginal communities and Hollows was unimpressed when he arrived a few days after the rest of the film crew, and by chartered plane no less. “So you’re a f****ing superstar, eh?” were the first words Hollows said to Martin. Not to be deterred, Martin carried on with the interview and by the end of the piece, the two were fast friends. “He could be gruff and argumentative and in the next breath he would have the best bedside manner,” Martin says. “He had this innate sense of humanity and was a myweeklypreview.com.au
10/07/2017 1:05:50 PM
Gabi Hollows at the Melbourne Coastrek start line in November 2016 truly decent person. He was complex, and we got on like a house on fire. “For all of his bluntness, he was a caring person. He was close to a saint… a very profane saint. But he has had a huge influence on my life.” Hollows would often reach out to Martin to promote the tireless work he was doing around the world and Martin accompanied him on some projects. “[Hollows] said the one thing that separates human beings from any other animal on this planet is the capacity to care. He lived by that mantra and it is very hard not to be impressed by him,” Martin says. “He was a doer and despite all of his responsibilities, with a wife and five children, and the reality that he was battling cancer and was dying, he still managed to care and make time for other people.” Hollows gave his last interview to Martin and they spent the last days of his life together. Before he died, Hollows asked him to be the first chairman of the foundation. “I don’t like boards and I told him it’s a waste of time. But it was very hard to argue against Fred, who was doing more than anybody else at the time,” Martin says. So he took on the role for 10 years and helped raise the much-needed funds and
support for the foundation’s first work in Eritrea, Nepal and Vietnam. “If you don’t have dreams, the world is a pretty boring place. Fred was a great dreamer, researcher, doctor and scientist and his big ideas have benefitted more than two million people around the world and that number will continue to grow.” While everything he needs to write a book about Hollows, which has been contracted by HarperCollins, Martin says he “keeps delaying”. “It’s the first time I’ve ever missed deadlines and I feel guilty,” he admits. Although Martin will leave the Coast just before Coastrek (a fundraiser for the Fred Hollows Foundation) arrives for the first time in the region, he encourages people to get out and support the event and the priceless work of the foundation. “You would feel lucky enough to live on the Sunshine Coast, so you’ve got to give back,” he says. “Just $25 will give sight to a person, so avoiding that extra cup of coffee or that second dish on a night out will make the world of difference to someone.”
FAST facts • There are 32.4 million people in the world who are blind and four out of five of them don’t have to be. • The Fred Hollows Foundation works in more than 25 countries. • In 2017, the foundation marks its 25th anniversary. • The foundation has restored sight to two million people worldwide. • For every $1 invested in eliminating avoidable blindness, at least $4 is returned to the local economy as adults can return to work. • 60 per cent of the world’s blind are women and girls, yet they are less likely to receive treatment, with financial, family or cultural reasons often limiting their ability to travel to health services.
STEPPING UP As part of Coastrek, thousands of people have walked to restore sight in Sydney and Melbourne. And this year, it is coming to the Sunshine Coast. Wild Women on Top founder and Coastrek event director Lisa Marshall was instrumental in setting up the southern events as fundraisers for the Fred Hollows Foundation and says when they were looking to expand into Queensland, the Sunshine Coast ticked all of the boxes. So much so, that she fell in love with the region while scouting out trek routes and has permanently moved from Sydney to Noosa. “We always look for the most beautiful stretches of coastline for walking and the Sunshine Coast has long coastlines where there are beaches and coastal paths and easy access to both,” she says. Around 1600 trekkers will be lacing up for the inaugural event on July 28, with 400 people taking on the gruelling 60-kilometre stretch from Dicky Beach to Noosa Woods. The beautiful natural scenery and a ride on the Luv Boat across the Mooloolah River will be among the highlights of the course, which teams have up to 18 hours to complete. Teams taking on the 30-kilometre distance have up to 10 hours to walk from Mudjimba to also finish at Noosa Woods, which is located at the end of Hastings Street. Marshall says participants are being supported with a 12-week training program to get them prepared for the event. “Sand walking is a challenge and it’s good for your body because it is an uneven surface and you use a lot of the muscles you don’t use when walking on flat roads and pavement. But you need to condition your body to walk on that kind of surface. Luckily on the Coast when the tides are out, the sand is nice and flat and walkers won’t be on too much of a slope. “This is a unique event in that 95 per cent of the participants are women, so there is a really charged energy as the teams line up at the start, with Gabi Hollows there to send them off and while the going does get tough along the way, there is that feeling of exhilaration when you the teams cross
Coastrek’s Lisa Marshall loves our region the finish line, often with their families waiting for them.” Rosa Collins – who has signed up to walk the 60-kilometre trek with Nikki Saint, Roz Rasmussen and Emma Johnson – says their Powerlifers team has already raised $1400 and will host a bingo night at Blackwater Trading Company in Moffat Beach on July 20 at 6.30pm to boost the coffers. “For me personally, [the trek] is a little bit of a challenge and it is also a charitable event and we know where the money is going – to help a foundation that is teaching people new skills and how to use those skills to benefit people in third world countries,” Collins says. Five-hundred dollars, the minimum raised by each trekker, can fund eye screening camps for 200 people in Kenya or 150 students in Bangladesh and $2000, the minimum raised by each team, can fund training for an ophthalmic nurse in Laos or Cambodia, or for a basic eye doctor in China “I’m a runner, so I don’t usually walk, especially not those distances, but Nikki’s the hiker of the team and she’s going to pull us through,” Collins says. Although registrations for walkers are closed, volunteers are still being sought to help with marking out the route and to man checkpoints.

CAROLINE JANE KNIGHT: “MY GREAT AUNT JANE AUSTEN” Jane Austen fans and history buffs alike will be fascinated by Caroline Jane Knight’s memories of growing up on the family estate where Jane Austen lived the last eight years of her life and wrote her most popular books. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
aroline Jane Knight has a story to tell about a grand English estate in a little country village, a family of landed gentry that can be traced back 400 years and a great aunt by the name of Jane Austen. Knight, who now lives in Melbourne, kept her ancestry as Jane Austen’s fifth great niece hidden until recently. Not only did she want to forge a business career on her own merits, without the shadow of one of the world’s greatest literary figures looming over her, but she wasn’t inclined to go public about her family’s heartbreaking loss of the Chawton House estate where Austen lived and wrote her most celebrated novels, including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. But living in Australia for the past nine years has encouraged Knight to relax her British stiff upper lip and she has now written a book, My Austen Heritage and will visit the Coast in July to speak at Voices on the Coast. Knight is a direct descendent of Jane’s brother, Edward Knight and until the age of 18, she lived at Chawton House (Jane lived at Chawton Cottage 400 metres from the main house) walking the same paths as Jane, dining at the same table, eating off the same Wedgwood dinner set and reading in the same library, which held 3000 books. Knight and her family were forced to leave the estate when her great grandfather, Edward Knight III, the 15th Squire of Chawton, passed away. “What happened to us with Chawton was effectively running out of money and the estate becoming bankrupt. That’s happened to 95 per cent of the ancestral homes of England. It’s due to social and economic changes at the end of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century. It was designed to redistribute the wealth away from the landed gentry, who owned everything. It was the right thing to do but when 15 generations come before you and you can’t keep it, it’s not necessarily a time for celebration or talking. “It wouldn’t have been a story I would have ever told,” she says. “For me it has been very challenging to write about – the loss of our ancestral home after 400 years had been difficult. Four years ago was the anniversary of the publishing of Pride and Prejudice and I ended up going to the celebrations in Melbourne at the Jane Austen Society. It was just a life-changing day. The first thing I realised was just how popular Jane has become globally today. It was the first time I had stood with the Jane Austen crowd and said who I was and talked about my connection, and the interest was just overwhelming.” In the 200 years since Austen published Pride and Prejudice
Caroline Jane Knight and left, Chawton House in Hampshire, England where Knight grew up
there have been more than 70 film and TV adaptations of Austen and her work – there’s even a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book and film. In 2014, Knight set up the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation as a way to channel the growing Austen mania towards a good cause. “The Jane Austen Literacy Foundation came way before the book,” Knight says. “There’s this huge Austen following and I just thought, if there are all these people getting together for events, festivals, high teas in all these societies across the world, there has got to be a way I can harness that passion for Jane by encouraging the community to contribute to literacy.” The Jane Austen Literacy Foundation raises money to buy books for Indigenous children in remote communities of Australia, supports the programs of the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation and pays for literacy kits for schools run by UNICEF in Syria, among other projects. Knight first tried to read Pride and Prejudice at the age of nine but it was too early. When she picked it up again at age 16, it was uncanny how the theme of inheritance so closely matched her own. “I didn’t even notice Lizzie and Darcy, I was completely distracted with what was going on with the Bennets,” she says. “Occasionally people ask me which Bennet sister are you? I think I’m Mrs Bennet, because she was the one saying what is going to become of us all? She was, although comically written,
expressing the concerns that I was feeling at that time and was unable to talk about with anybody.” Knight’s favourite Austen book isn’t the standout favourite Pride and Prejudice, but Northanger Abbey: “I think it’s fun, it’s different from the others and I think it’s the novel that best dispels the myth that Jane was a prudish, straight, woman from an English village who didn’t have much experience in life.” Of her own writing, she says while she has published a non-fiction book, she’s not about to venture into fiction: “That will never happen. When you’re a part of Jane Austen’s family the bar is set phenomenally high. I wouldn’t even begin to try to match up with Jane. “But I’m really pleased with my book. I’m glad I’ve contributed to the history of the family. It has been really cathartic for me. When I first started this project, we wouldn’t have been able to have this conversation; I would have been crying. But Jane backed herself and I wanted to do the same. I literally had this moment of suddenly realising that yes, I do have an interesting story and I’m going to share it.”

Chloe chose each of the 15 eyeshadow shades, with a mixture of shimmer and matte shadows in the latest orange, copper, brown, purple and burgundy tones.

2017 hair trend: platinum blonde short styles It’s not a style everyone can pull off, but super-short platinum blonde hair has become one of the year’s most eye-catching hair trends. Katy Perry (left) sported this white-blonde pixie cut at Paris Fashion Week and actor Kristen Stewart (top right) went shorter still with her bold buzz cut, while actor Zoe Kravitz (bottom right) has also joined the short blonde brigade. These styles work best with an oval face shape but more importantly, they suit a confident personality type – you’ll be getting plenty of attention with this cut!

When deep sadness, loss of hope, fatigue, relentless anxiety, and a scattered brain rules your life, where do you turn?
CABLE BID GETS A BOOST
he bid for a future international submarine cable to be connected to the Sunshine Coast has received a welcome boost with the Federal Government following through on a promised $250,000 grant for the Sunshine Coast Council to undertake a feasibility study. The council lodged a submission with the Australian Communications and Media Authority to start the process to declare an offshore cable protection zone in July 2015. If the zone is declared, it will encourage the private sector to deliver an international submarine broadband cable connection that would land at the Coast and provide fast data and telecommunications to the region. Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien says the grant is the trigger the region has been waiting for. “The opportunities that an optic cable could open up for not only the Sunshine Coast but all of south-east Queensland are profound,” O’Brien says “For example, an optic cable linked to the new Sunshine Coast CBD could bring to life the most ambitious smart city plan in the country. Linked to the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital and growing health precinct, we can build deep expertise in exportable e-Health services.” Five submarine telecommunications cables currently connect the country with the
Long term stress or illness can have a substantial effect on your body that can be hard to recover from, driving you into a physical state of low brain function, depriving your brain of the oxygen, nutrients, hormones and chemicals required for it to work at its best. Coupled with fatigue, it leaves you too tired to exercise or to eat well, and unable to give the effort you know you need to, into the life you deserve to lead. The depression, anxiety, and for some, a chronic fatigue state leaves you struggling to get out of bed each day, unable to think clearly, make decisions, and unable to give the love and attention you want to your partner, family, or to yourself. The sadness, despair, fear, exhaustion, confusion, loss of hope, loss of happiness, and the negative, and sometimes harmful thoughts, that you know are not who you really are, can be too intense to bare, sometimes too intense to share with the people you need to, and sometimes too far of a decline in your health to be remedied by one pill.
Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien with Minister for Communications Mitch Fifield signing the funding grant for the study
A life with incredible health, abundance of energy and a sense of happiness like never before isn’t impossible when you understand how to work the machine that is your body and brain
rest of the world. One is in Perth and the other four are located around Sydney. Mayor Mark Jamieson says Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has identified the close proximity of the existing cables as a “vulnerable single-point-of-failure” for the eastern seaboard of Australia. “The Sunshine Coast will be playing its part in addressing a major national risk because, with the existing four cables in Sydney located so closely together, they could easily be damaged or disrupted at the same time,” Jamieson says.
Recognising that this is a whole body experience, not only caused by your brain, though the brain feels the lion’s share of the symptoms, and understanding how this has happened, gives you the power to end the depression or anxious state, and therefore the stress, allowing your body and brain to cope again. If stress has been so great that you are suffering with any of these symptoms, you may need to reset your system to get back on track. Antidepressants are designed to treat the symptoms of brain chemical imbalances, which may not assist when the depressive state is based on nutritional deficiency, hormonal depletion or any number of other ways depression can affect your life. Always look to treat the right cause with the right treatment to resolve it quickly the first time, and reduce your risk of lifelong medication and illness.

SEX AND THE CITY: NOT ANOTHER FILM
SMALL BUSINESS, BIG ISSUES
Sami Muirhead is a certified Sex And The City fan from way back, but rumours of a third film do not make her want to pop open the champers.
miss my friends who taught me all about relationships, cocktails, bad breakups and good shoes. I really miss them. We met 20 years ago next year and it was always the four of them dressed to the nines hanging out with me, usually dressed in my pyjamas. Sex And The City first aired nearly two decades ago. I fell in love with Carrie when the first episode aired in 1998 and I felt like it had been written just for me. Of course, that is why it remains one of the most influential shows of all time. Millions of women felt a connection to these women because of the way they dealt with gritty issues such as heartbreak, harassment, infertility and poor body image and equally showed the way any girl squad loves to dress up. Because that is life when you are a woman. Our conversations with each other flit from politics to what we are cooking for dinner to Kim Kardashian. Life is equal parts tragedy at times, and equal parts putting on a pretty dress, sipping champagne with our friends and forgetting about reality. Oh how I lived each week to see what Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha would be wearing, where they would go in New York City, and who they would be doing. But it was Carrie who spoke to me the loudest. She was a journalist climbing the
ladder and that was my lifelong wish, to write and be paid for it. The New Yorker was pretty lousy when it came to relationships. That was definitely me. I even had her curly crazy hair and her habit of spending entire pay packets on ridiculous items of clothing. And let’s tackle sex – talk about revolutionary TV having four females who enjoyed sex and all the cat and mouse games that come and go with it. Samantha opened my eyes as she opened her bed to a constantly turning selection of hot guys. I admit the Mr Big and Carrie relationship did not set a great example to women around the world, but the ongoing rejection Carrie felt from him was palpable. I was devastated when the series ended in 2004 because when I was down in the dumps or just trying to figure out where I was going in life, I would pull out my box DVD set of every episode ever made and binge watch the girls. Then they made the first movie a few years later and it was just not the same. Now the rumours have started of Sex And The City 3 finally being filmed. I think sometimes memories are better left untouched. And let us end on one of Carrie’s famed quotes: “Life gives you lots of chances to screw up, which means you have just as many chances to get it right.”

Bill Darby says if small business is the engine room of the Sunshine Coast economy, we need to cut small business owners some slack.
e are always talking up the success of our small business community and how well the region ranks as the ‘small business capital of Australia’. Working on the premise that you can’t always believe what you read, it’s worthwhile digging deeper into the foundation of our regional economy. According to a recent statement made by Mayor Mark Jamieson, small enterprises account for 90 per cent of all businesses on the coast, and employ 120,000 staff. He went on to say that small businesses are the engine room of our economy and from my observations, I reckon he is pretty spot on. Some media statements are a little harder to swallow. In April, Queensland’s Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy and Minister for Small Business, the Honourable Leeanne Enoch, espoused the Sunshine Coast region is home to no less than 60,918 small businesses. I wish someone had bothered to do some research. There are barely 35,000 registered business names in the region and if more than a third of them were actual operating businesses, I’d be very surprised. A growing number of small traders on the Coast are doing it tough. The burden of compliance imposed by the three tiers of government and the generosity of our industrial awards are straws breaking the camel’s back. The pressures bearing down on many small business owners are creating a new class of poor being disguised by
overdrafts, re-financing, credit card debt and extended payment arrangements. Dominating the news over recent weeks has been the response to recent changes in Sunday penalty rates. Unions are using intimidation tactics on employers and they are creating fear around the supposed erosion of entitlements. In reality, Australia has one of the world’s most generous wage structures. Even the Fair Work Commission couldn’t justify such high wage penalties for Sunday small business traders to continue. Put simply, small business owners don’t work seven days a week for the fun of it, nor do they close their doors on busy public holidays for no reason. Unlike the major retailers who bought the union’s favour years ago with their enterprise bargaining agreements, small businesses owners have been left high and dry to juggle mounting costs and shrinking profits. There’s something weird about the Australian culture. We don’t champion our successful business people, nor our entrepreneurs. There’s no thanks handed out to the risk-takers who throw themselves into debt to deliver those 120,000 local jobs. One day, all small business employers will value their employees and each will enjoy a mutually respectful workplace relationship with little need for the protection of unions and awards. I believe these 21st century ethics define modern successful businesses. Let’s hope the trend continues.

BUSINESS & FINANCE
Troy Davey, Ord Minnett Buderim.
A NEW FINANCIAL YEAR
new financial year is upon us now. It was a very busy end to the 2016/2017 financial year for those of you who decided to take advantage of generous superannuation strategies which have now been curtailed. If you successfully implemented those strategies before 30 June 2017 – congratulations. We have now commenced the 2017/2018 financial year and there are a number of changes that you need to be aware of. From July 1, 2017 everyone’s concessional (pre-tax) contribution cap has fallen to $25,000. As a reminder, your employer (superannuation guarantee), salary sacrifice, and personal deductible contributions generally count towards your
concessional contribution cap. So you will need to review this if you are trying to maximise your concessional contributions as there has been a reduction. Another change in relation to concessional contributions is that personal deductible contributions can be made by employees now. Prior to July 1, 2017. Generally self-employed individuals were only allowed to make personal deductible contributions after satisfying the 10 per cent rule – this rule has now been removed. The annual non-concessional (after-tax) contribution cap fell to $100,000 from $180,000 on July 1, 2017. For those of you below age 65, you will still be allowed to bring forward three years’ worth of contributions and contribute up to $300,000 (3 x $100,000 non-concessional contribution cap). Please note that if you make use of the bring forward provision – you may not be able to make further non-concessional contributions for up to three financial years (including the financial year in which you make the contribution). Importantly, for those of you who are fortunate enough to have over $1.6 million in superannuation – you will no longer be able to make non-concessional contributions to super after July 1, 2017. Please be aware that you will still be
required to satisfy a work test before making contributions to super if you are over the age of 65. The other key change that came into effect from July 1 is that the earnings associated with Transition to Retirement pension balances will be taxed at up to 15 per cent. Careful consideration now needs to be given to Transition to Retirement strategies given this change and the change in relation to concessional contributions. The strategy may remain appropriate depending on your personal situation. For example, it may be appropriate to keep drawing a pension if you still have non-deductible debt in the lead-up to retirement. The changes in relation to superannuation have been a lot for some to digest. They are now here to stay and you should review your strategy to ensure it remains appropriate for your personal circumstances. A conversation with your adviser should allow you to figure out what is best for you moving forward. Troy Davey is an Authorised Representative (no 473122) of Ord Minnett Ltd, AFS licence 237121.

FORESTS, FJORDS AND FOLKLORE
With movies on the brain, Todd Widdicombe is in a reflective mood.
n this world there’s disappointment, then there’s the waiter walking past the table with food I thought was mine disappointment, and then there is the kind of disappointment I feel about the new Transformers movie. I had such high hopes and yet it fell well short of my expectations of awesomeness. A bit like how I imagine my wife feels about our marriage. Although just like Transformers, if the marriage involved the dreamy Mark Wahlberg then it might still be worth the price of admission. Michelle reckons I need to let it go and seek help for my obsession with all things movies. She reckons I try to turn everything into a movie reference, but seriously I’m just trying to create a bond, James Bond.
Michelle even went as far as to say I often confuse movies with real life. Gotta say I was surprised by her negativity considering the time we worked together and helped free a whale. Or the other time when we saved the world from a rogue asteroid. Sadly that day we lost our very dear friend Bruce Willis. I had worked with him previously when terrorists tried to rob the 40-storey Nakatomi Plaza and we had to kill Hans Gruber. Great memories from back in the day. Just re-reading this now I’m starting to think maybe Michelle has a point. I’ve always been obsessed with movies, ever since I was a little tacker, and if growing up in the ’80s has taught me one thing it’s that my buddies and I should have found a treasure map by now. I like to ponder the realities for movie characters. Like seriously do you think Batman ever looks to the sky, sees the bat signal and says, “For the love of Jesus on a bike people I literally just sat down!” I’ve also wondered how often Batman’s cape gets caught in the door of the Batmobile. It’s gotta be a regular thing, right? Luckily while I’m pondering all this I’ve got a solid ale to keep me company.
We’ve been down the Little Creatures Dog Days road before but all great movies have a sequel and then a reboot. So too does Dog Days. Originally released as a Little Creatures seasonal, Dog Days is now readily available in cans and although it’s officially a summer beer I can tell you it’s a dead-set ripper for quaffing all year round. It’s a cracking beer – crisp, clean, refreshing and hoppy with a peachy, juicy fruit flavour that combines perfectly with the classic Little Creatures wheat malt. It was awesome as a seasonal and it’s even better now we know it’s here to stay. I give the Little Creatures Dog Days Summer Ale a blockbuster 4.5 out of five thumbs up.
LITTLE CREATURES DOG DAYS SUMMER BEER 4.4%, 355ML CANS Available at Cellarbrations Brightwater Hotel, Parklands Tavern, Wises Road, Buderim and Bellvista.

OUR 50TH YEAR
ALL ABOARD FOR A TRIP TO THE SEASIDE PICTURE SUNSHINE COAST, SUNSHINE COAST LIBRARIES.
The roads, if they existed, were rough and boggy, but in the early 20th century, holidaymakers could have a lovely day at the beach by catching the tram from Nambour, writes Dot Whittington.
THIS MONTH IN HISTORY A Notification of Decision to Adopt a Place Name under the Queensland Place Names Act of 1958 appeared in the Queensland Government Gazette in July 1967. The name was endorsed by the Minister for Lands, Alan Fletcher, who advised that the decision would take effect from 1 August 1967. The Sunshine Coast was official.
Trams left the Nambour terminus adjacent to the Royal George Hotel, (from left) in 1917; the Coolum m line in the 1920s and in 1923
ike everything on the Sunshine Coast, it all begins with primary production. With the sugar mill to open in Nambour in 1897, it was necessary to find an efficient way to bring in the cane harvest from the district’s farms, and what better way, than by tram. Cane trams had been operating successfully in other sugar districts since the 1880s, so a network was surveyed in the districts around the Nambour mill, and tramlines built ready for the first crush. They were a narrow 610 millimetre gauge built for economy not speed, as the first wagons were pulled by horses. The network was gradually extended and by 1905, when the first locomotive arrived, there were 42 kilometres of permanent tramline. By 1907, the mill’s board of directors was looking for other uses for its tramway network. It was earning a little extra delivering firewood but for half the year, from January to June, the lines were unused. At the same time, people were looking for a transport service connecting to Nambour, to carry both goods and passengers. Roads were rough, damaged by horse-drawn
vehicles carrying heavy loads of produce and in the wet season, were regularly impassable. The tramlines were the obvious solution. The mill’s finances and public demand finally came together after the cane crush in the Christmas holidays of 1909. There would be a two-month trial of public transport on the tramway for three kilometres from Nambour down the Petrie’s Creek line to Cedar Tree, near Rosemount. A carriage with a capacity for 32 people was built. Goods were loaded in the mill yard before the tram set off down Mill Street to stop between the Club and Royal George hotels for passengers to board. The trial was so successful it was decided to continue the service. Passengers were warned, “This company is not a common carrier. It only carries passengers as it thinks fit” and it wasn’t liable even if “passengers are landed at their wrong destination”. The company also stated that its charges were for upkeep not profit. In 1912, the line was extended for another 1.2 kilometres to Deepwater at Bli Bli where passengers could transfer to a boat for the trip down river to Maroochydore and Cotton Tree.
A branch line had been built to the Maroochy River in 1911, but it stopped there until August 1921, when finally a bridge was built. A hand-operated system of pulleys and counterweights was used to raise the central span so boats could still use the river. Coolum was now connected to the mill and an isolated line was built in 1922, between Coolum Creek and Coolum Beach which was used for both cane and passengers. More than 1000 people took the tram from Nambour to Coolum during the 1922 Christmas holidays and the tram helped build Coolum as a seaside resort for day trippers and holidaymakers. The passenger services to Deepwater were replaced by buses in 1927 and the Coolum line closed in 1935. A final passenger excursion to Coolum ran just before the line between South Coolum Road and the Beach Hill terminus was lifted in 1957. Moreton sugar mill had its last crush on December 3, 2003. The tramway network was dismantled and most of the line removed. It was the end of an era.
Kings Beach, Caloundra, 1960
DID YOU KNOW? • Unlike many other place names that give a nod to the British royal family, Kings Beach in Caloundra was named after its first residents, the King family. Allan King moved to Caloundra in 1893 and built King’s Grand Central Guest House on the corner of Edmund Street in about 1908. He became one of the first Caloundra councillors in 1913. • Scotland-born explorer Thomas Petrie, the fourth son of Andrew Petrie, became the first white man to climb Buderim Mountain in 1862. He explored the stream that became known as Petrie’s Creek. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s hard to find a present for someone who has everything. Happy 50th birthday to the Sunny Coast. DAIMLER TRUCKS SUNSHINE COAST QAA54428

NEED INSPIRATION? CHECK OUT THIS DREAM HOME The Sunshine Coast is attracting more adult settlers than the Gold Coast, according to new migration figures. The latest Regional Internal Migration report found more than 4800 Australians aged over 25 made the region their home during the past financial year – 23 per cent more than the Gold Coast. RSL Art Union general manager Tracey Bishop says the steady rise in interest has prompted the organisation to offer more prize homes in the region. “Just one of our prize homes was on the Sunshine Coast in 2010, compared with three that we are offering this year,” she says. “The one we are offering now at Yandina is the biggest and most impressive at 940 square metres. It has six bedrooms with spectacular bushland views and is
GARDEN CENTRE worth $1.8 million with nearly $184,000 in furniture and electrics. “It’s a dream home-come-true for the increasing number of people looking to move to the Sunshine Coast.” The ABS migration report showed about 7500 people relocated to the Sunshine Coast from Brisbane, 2200 from Sydney and 1500 from Melbourne.

SAFE AND OH-SO STYLISH Swedish maker Volvo has completely upended its once-conservative image with a new luxury sedan that’s the epitome of style. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.
afe. Boring. Boxy. If you’re old enough to remember ABBA and Bjorn Borg, you’d also recall those three words being a perfect description of another Scandinavian icon – Volvo. The Swedish-built cars made a big impression on Australians back in those days, but not always for the most flattering reasons. Sure, they were safe. Among the safest vehicles on the road. Sensible, too. Practical. And well built. The downside was the image of Volvo drivers as hat-wearing,
slow-moving, risk-averse bank clerks and retired quantity surveyors. So unflattering was the company’s image it launched an advertising campaign about “bloody Volvo drivers” – to draw attention to the evolving range of more modern vehicles. Now the perception of this famous of Swedish brands has come full circle. Three new models that sit at the top of the range reinforce the ‘new’ Volvo – sleek, stylish and thoroughly modern. And perhaps the sleekest of all is Volvo’s new luxury sedan, the
S90. It’s complemented by an equally sharp-looking wagon (the V90) plus the SUV variant – in this case the highly impressive XC90 tested here recently. The S90 is big, handsome and innovatively finished. Like the XC90 it reimagines cockpit design to a certain degree, and it lavishes its occupants in comfort. The S90 looks just as it should – a crisply designed, well-equipped and dynamically impressive luxury sedan. While its price tag (from as little as $79,990) puts it into competition with executive sedans like BMW’s new 5 Series, its dimensions and interior space are probably closer to the next rung up the luxury ladder – territory ferociously guarded by the likes of Audi’s A8 and Benz’s peerless S-Class. Like the XC, the S90 cockpit is styled around an iPad-style centre touchscreen to access all but the most basic cabin functions. The list of app-style operations is long, including two self-parking functions; internet access with links to music sites Spotify and Pandora; live weather and traffic alerts and all manner of clever cockpit functions. As you’d expect, safety remains high on Volvo’s agenda – the S90 moves closer to autonomous driving with its Pilot Assist system that will steer the car itself at highway speeds as well as keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front. We drove the S90 in premium form – the D5 Inscription model – with a frugal diesel engine, eight-speed automatic transmission
and all-wheel drive. It can also be found in a couple of other formats – from the entry-level Momentum (from $79,990 plus onroads) up to the flagship T6 Inscription Twin Engine, which uses the same super-efficient, petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain which we’ve previously sampled in the XC90. The S90 interior space – and cargo space – is more comparable to a full-sized European limo. Not surprising, I suppose, considering this is the vehicle of choice for Sweden’s royal family and senior political leaders. Plus ABBA and Bjorn Borg, of course.
VOLVO S90 D5 INSCRIPTION HOW BIG? A limo-style luxury sedan that can hold five adults in comfort. The boot is also cavernous. HOW FAST? Not especially with the diesel engine we tested, with a 0-100kmh sprint time of seven seconds. The hybrid-petrol TwinEngine model is quicker.
HOW THIRSTY? This is where the diesel really delivers – with a city-car thirst of just 5.1L/100km. Again, the hybrid manages even lower consumption. HOW MUCH? The S90 starts at $79,990 plus onroads. Our Inscription test has a base price of $96,900 but in tested form reached almost $120,000, thanks to a long list of extras including a sunroof ($3000), premium audio ($4500) and leather instrument panel ($2500).

“THEY WERE BOUNCING BACK IN $50,000 INCREMENTS” Next Property Group agent Richard Scrivener says competition was fierce for this luxury Alexandra Headlands property, which sold for $3 million under the hammer on the weekend. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he auction of an iconic Alexandra Headland property owned by a prominent Sunshine Coast family drew a crowd of 150 spectators as it went under the hammer for $3 million on Saturday. The Frank Raadschelder-designed home was the pride and joy of Peter Shadforth and his family, who spent 15 years transforming the “best block in the Golden Triangle”. Next Property Group ran a four-week print campaign through My Property Preview and the home, which was co-listed with Amber Werchon Property, drew interest from both local and interstate buyers. Next Property Group agent Richard Scrivener says the “huge campaign” attracted five registered bidders, with a phone bidder and a couple from Brisbane battling it out to be able to call 1 Kate Street home. “They were bouncing back in $50,000 increments and it was clear that the (Brisbane) couple who bought it weren’t going to lose it. The others, who were local buyers, pushed as hard as they could though,” he says. “The local buyers we have worked with for many years and they made an offer prior to the auction as well, but it wasn’t to be for them on the day. “The $3 million sale price was above the reserve and the owners are very satisfied with that at the end of the day.” Scrivener says the success of the Kate
“Taking properties to auction and running print campaigns are the way to go…”
Street auction was complemented by another successful auction in Aroona by Next Property Group the same day. “With the limited amount of property stock becoming available, taking properties to auction and running print campaigns are the way to go in the coming months,” he says. “There is not enough property available to match the high level of interest. Nobody wants to leave and everybody wants to come. And at the end of the day, this is getting the best outcome for the vendors.”
LOWER INTEREST RATES BENEFIT HOME OWNERS WHILE RENTERS SHACK UP TO SAVE Census data released recently shows households are accommodating more people, the costs of servicing a mortgage have declined and the number of vacant dwellings is on the rise. CoreLogic commercial research analyst Eliza Owen says the 2016 Census gives a clear perspective on what an Australian household looks like and how it is changing in relation to housing affordability and low income growth. Owen says the data shows a rapid increase in “group households” – homes where there are two or more unrelated people living together and where all residents are aged 15 years or older. “The national increase in group households in the five years to 2016 was 10.5 per cent. This is lower than the group household increase between 2006 and 2011, which was 14.35 per cent, and coincided with a five-year rent increase of over 38 per cent. “However, the group household type grew rapidly compared to a seven per cent
40 My Weekly Preview | July 14, 2017
Eliza Owen from CoreLogic rise in the number of total households, and seven per cent in the number of single households across Australia.” While there are a number of social trends, such as couples marrying later in life and therefore considered to be living in a group household, there was also a
connection to increasing rents and home deposit hurdles. The latter seems to have become easier for those looking to buy property on the Sunshine Coast, with the Census data showing the typical household mortgage repayment was either unchanged, or fell. Owen says this is largely due to the drop in the standard variable rate, which was 7.8 per cent in 2011 and had fallen to 5.25 per cent at the time of the Census last year. “Thus lower interest rates likely reduced the cost of outstanding mortgages through refinancing opportunities, while new home owners also benefitted from lower interest rates, despite those same low interest rates encouraging rapid price increases in several of the capital cities,” she says. Despite prominent figureheads crying out about limited housing supply, there was an increase in the number of vacant properties on Census night, where 11.2 per cent, or 1,089,165 dwellings were recorded
as unoccupied. The previous Census recorded 10.2 per cent, or 934,471 dwellings. “At the time of the 2016 Census, CoreLogic saw a typical vacancy rate of about 5.3 per cent associated with market turnover. Extrapolating that figure to the census dwelling count of 9,901,496 suggests that market turnover could account for 524,779 of the vacant dwellings at the time of the census,” Owen says. “Furthermore, the highest level of vacant properties from the 2011 Census were actually in areas associated with holiday making in the east, such as coastal Victoria and regional NSW, rather than in areas of high residential demand. “Higher levels of unoccupied stock provide some credence to the notion that some properties are being purchased without an intention to tenant them, however at a broad capital city level the trend looks mild. This phenomenon is most evident within inner city unit markets.” myweeklypreview.com.au

RESULTS If you’re thinking about selling your home, now is the time – here are some of our recent success stories CASH CONTRACT
150 ATTEND AUCTION
SOLD FOR ASKING PRICE
54 Gerrard Road, Eudlo was marketed online for 12-months without finding a buyer and with hardly an inquiry.
Following a very successful auction campaign at the iconic and highly sought after 1 Kate Street, Alexandra Headland, I would like to personally thank My Weekly Preview. During the four-week auction campaign we advertised weekly in the magazine and had some fantastic results with our viewer numbers. We had more than 50 inspections and a massive 150 people attended the auction with five registered bidders and a great result for our seller with a sale under the hammer. I would like to thank the MWP team for their ongoing support, without the addition of print media we feel the result may not have been as good.
As agents we all hear and see the statistics on print advertising with My Weekly Preview, but I had never actually tested it myself to see the true results without any other form of advertising. Until now. With nothing but sole print advertising with My Weekly Preview on a property marketed at $449,000, I received a total of 23 enquiries. The property was sold for the asking price! Proof is in the pudding and the sellers, buyers and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Thanks very much to the team at My Weekly Preview and keep up the great work. William Emms Elders Woombye
A four-week print campaign in My Weekly Preview resulted in 16 inspections, two offers and a cash contract. The property is due to settle in two weeks. What a fantastic result and a big, big thankyou to the team at My Weekly Preview, 100 per cent plus for service.

with MWP’s man in the water
Winter? Where was winter last weekend? The Saturday weather was incredible. I did hear this morning that there were great waves pushing into Sunshine Beach. So, J-Bay has finally started. Game on. Let’s hope Julian gets a solid result to move up the ladder as it is a bit crowded. Moving on, and things this weekend could end up being classic. The winds are light with small waves so should be heaps of fun. Might be worth a trip to A-Bay. You’d certainly could be rewarded for your efforts.

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
This week Uranus stirs up your reckless side, when you surprise – or even shock – others with an unpredictable move that comes right out of left field. But too much hastiness could lead to an argument or accident so pace yourself.
With Venus (your ruler) linking up with indulgent Jupiter, you’re in the mood for flirting and socialising as you channel your inner hedonist. Don’t overdo it though. And be careful you’re not viewing a situation through rose-coloured glasses!
It’s a wonderful week to crank up your social media, as you network in creative and proactive ways. So get circulating and advertising in style! An impulsive comment could land you in hot water though, so think things through (carefully) before you post.
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
Sudden changes can catapult you into a state of catatonia. This week the planets shake up your comfort zone – especially involving work matters or a personal project. Uranus urges you to banish boredom and take a smart calculated risk.
This week some cats will cause plenty of commotion behind the scenes; while others stir things up in a very public way. But is that really such a smart idea? Disruptive behaviour will just alienate you from others.
When Mercury (your ruling planet) links up with serious Saturn (midweek) you may veer off into Virgo worry-wart mode. But stressing about problems won’t help. Instead, roll your sleeves up and just get on with the tasks at hand.
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
You pride yourself on your well-rounded personality but it will be difficult to balance head and heart this week. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try! Loved ones or work colleagues will try to throw you off balance or press your buttons.
The more organised you are this week the more successful you’ll be. Looking for employment? Think outside the box and find creative ways to present yourself in an irresistible new light (that makes you stand out from the crowd).
This week Mars charges into your adventure zone, but progress will be erratic as Mars motivates you to move forward, while Saturn cautions you to look before you leap! If you run around on auto-pilot, then you’re more likely to make silly slip-ups.
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
You’ll have trouble coping with any restrictions that are placed on you by loved ones, so close relationships are likely to be unpredictable. You’ll find the more you try to assert your authority and independence, the more woeful the week will be.
You need to be cautious and mindful online as the Sun, Mars and Uranus throw a hand grenade into social media. Take care when driving too, as you’re more accident prone than usual. Single? The new moon revs up your relationship zone.
If you confuse fact with fantasy on Monday, then you could end up with a mess on your hands. So do your best to keep your feet on the ground! Making a snap decision about a family matter on Wednesday could turn out surprisingly well.

THE LAST WORD
GET BOYS TALKING ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS Richard O’Leary says we need to talk to boys about their feelings so it becomes as natural as playing with a plane or truck.
id I ever tell you about our friends who, after having a girl, decided to try just one more time for a boy? They had triplets – all girls. Why do I mention this? Firstly because I think it’s a cracker of a story that never fails to get a reaction and also I wanted to talk about boys and girls and how we treat them so differently. It’s not just that many of us dress little boys in blue and girls in pink, or buy planes and tanks for boys and dolls and toy kitchens for girls – we don’t talk to them the same either. The 2014 study Gender Differences in Adult-Infant Communication in the First Months of Life found that mothers talk more to their daughters than to their sons. “Findings also suggest that parents may also respond preferentially to infants based on gender.” And it’s not just how long we talk with girls or boys; it’s what we say to them. In another study, Spanish mothers were
more likely to use emotional words when talking with their daughters. And fathers did the same thing. Other research also points to a gender divide when it comes to how we talk about risk to our children. After a child has been hurt we are four times more likely to tell a girl to be careful so it doesn’t happen again.
“And it’s not just how long we talk with girls or boys; it’s what we say to them” I only have boys so I may not be the best guide, but when my eight-year-old recently got stuck on the top of play equipment (he does test the limits) and I had to be called from work to get him down, the thought never crossed my mind to tell him to not
climb anymore – I just told him it was the right and brave thing to ask for help when he knew he had exceeded his limits. Of course, all of this would be neither here nor there if it didn’t make any difference to the kids, but all the research suggests it does affect how boys and girls behave. Studies have found that boys’ literacy and verbal skills along with the ability to express emotions are all impacted by this communication segregation. What to do? The experts suggest we talk to boys about their feelings so they become used to it and it becomes just as natural as playing with a plane, or truck, or a Barbie doll for that matter. P.S. Believe it or not my friends with four girls under three years of age tried one more time for a boy… and they finally got one – I think dealing with his emotions may be the least of his problems. 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.
