DR KARL’S LITTLE BOOKS From Australia’s most popular scientist, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, these two wonderfully entertaining and educational books are filled with hours of fun for primary school kids. Dr Karl’s Little Book of Dinos is filled with facts, puzzles and activities about the best bits of dinosaurs. It’s sure to entertain children of all ages. Meanwhile, Dr Karl’s Little Book of Space is just as much fun and will entertain budding astronauts and provide fun facts about the universe. Both titles are published by Pan Macmillan.

T

he first time I stepped foot on to the sandy beach of Alexandra Headland, I was nine. I will never forget the feeling and the sound of the white sand squeaking under my feet. The waves were crashing, the sun was shining and the water was warm – my younger brother and I ran straight for the ocean. For a pair of kids from a small country town, it was paradise. And, despite calling the Sunshine Coast home for the past 12 years, I still feel the exact same way. Each year our family would holiday on the Coast. In those early years, where the Seaforth Resort now stands along Alexandra Parade, a large car park stretched between the old Olympia Theme Park and the beach. The roads were quieter, there was no Kawana Way; Caloundra was a sleepy beachside village and the Big Top Shopping Centre was a thriving centre with future development years away. In many ways I feel as though I grew up with the Sunshine Coast. And, I’m sure I am not alone. August 1 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast – a time to reflect on how far our region has come and also where it is going into the future. We invite readers to take a trip down memory lane with this week’s cover story. I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as we did. Happy birthday Sunshine Coast!

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

Living in Hobart prior to arriving on the Coast, Britto says he would rather live here. “The weather is perfect, which makes it perfect for my passion of fishing. However, as Mrs Britto says, she wouldn’t want to rely on my success as a hunter – we would go hungry!”

QUICK CHAT

ALLY OF THE UNDERDOG First job? At a pharmacy on Saturdays. What are you currently working on? Animal welfare issues. We are trying to educate the public on the importance of desexing pets. So many healthy pets are euthanised in Australia each year. Pounds and shelters are always full. The message is Adopt Not Shop – don’t breed or buy while healthy animals die. Your family includes… My mother and two sisters and brother and many nieces and nephews and of course my two dogs Charlie and Mindee. My husband passed away two years ago. First car? A Toyota Camry. Favourite book? My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell. Read it when I was quite young and it always stayed with me. I come from a family who are animal welfare-minded and with a long line of quirkiness as well, so I related to it.

Julie Penlington

animal lover

BIO Mooloolaba’s Julie Penlington was a founding member of 4 Paws Animal Rescue in 2005. She puts in a 60-hour week as a volunteer working to rehome discarded pets and won this year’s Sunshine Coast Citizen of the Year award for her work in providing loving homes for rescued animals. She estimates 4 Paws has rehomed around 6000 animls.

What are you reading now? Re-reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? More pet-friendly rentals so I don’t have to help heartbroken families rehome their family pets when they can’t find pet-friendly housing. Best day in your life? When we sailed back to Australia after 10 years travelling. There is no place like home, we really are the lucky country. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? When we set off to sail around the world. It opened me up to the fact anything can be achieved, I was terrified of water and I still did it. We sailed for 10 years to amazing places and had great adventures. We were really well treated no matter where we sailed – everyone loved Aussies visiting.

“We sailed for 10 years to amazing places and had great adventures”

Favourite song? Sailing by Christopher Cross. Best advice you’ve been given? Do unto others as you would have done unto you. How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? Thirty years. Why do you live here? When my late husband and I sold our pharmacy in Kings Cross and set sail around the world we sailed through Mooloolaba on the way. We fell in love with it and we said one day we would make it our home. Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? Up to my second favourite place Woombye and the hinterland. We bought a pharmacy in Woombye when we settled back here, we loved the place and the people and it has a very warm place in my heart.

Your greatest regret? There is never enough time to do what is needed. I wish I had started my work with animals earlier. What achievement are you most proud of? My work with 4 Paws Animal Rescue and the fact we have been able to save the lives of many thousands of cats and dogs.

You are happiest when? At home with my dogs watching tele with a cup of tea. What frustrates you the most? People who call me and say I have a cat/dog I have to get ‘rid of’, as if it is a bag of garbage. The average life of a companion cat and dog is up to 15 years. It is a fact that really has to be thought about before you commit to adopting a pet. How do you deal with your frustrations? Have a long bath, heaven after a stressful day. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? The world can be a cruel place. Admire the kind and generous and try to remedy the unkind and mean-spirited. Tea or coffee? I love a good cup of English breakfast tea with a little milk and sugar.

COVER STORY

TAKE A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

IMAGES: SUNSHINE COAST LIBRARIES

August 1 marks 50 years since the Sunshine Coast was officially named. With the anniversary pon us, My Week ck at the region’s history. W upon Weekly Preview takes a look back WORDS: Dot Whittington.

Clockwise from top left: Alexandra Headland, 1971; Maroochydore surf carnival, 1967; Caloundra, 1960s; Kings Beach, circa 1965, Alexandra Headland, mid 1960s; the McQuay children at Mooloolaba, 1959

1967 – THE BIRTH The birth announcement appeared in the Government Gazette of August 1, 1967, after a long gestation. The name had first come up almost a decade earlier at the inaugural dinner of the Sunshine Coast branch of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland in Caloundra in December 1958. The move was likely prompted because a similar distance from Brisbane to the south, the South Coast had rebranded itself the Gold Coast a few months earlier in October 1958. Sibling rivalry was present from the beginning. The three local authorities – Landsborough, Maroochy and Noosa shires – were collectively the Near North Coast or just the North Coast. A name was needed to bring them together for tourism and identity in the southern market. A few precious resources were considered – Silver Coast, Diamond Coast – and as Suncoast had already been taken by a developer, finally it was settled. It would be named the Sunshine Coast. The three local councils endorsed the name in November 1966, and in July 1967 a Notification of Decision to Adopt a Place Name under the Queensland Place Names Act of 1958 appeared in the Queensland Government Gazette. Minister for Lands, Alan Fletcher, advised that the decision would take effect from August 1, 1967.

1968-1970 – THE TODDLER LEARNS TO WALK It was time for timber and primary production on which the region had been founded to make way for tourism, the industry of the future. Until this time, the beaches had taken a back seat to the hinterland. Local government was based in Landsborough, Nambour and Pomona where there were sawmills, orchards, cane fields, a sugar mill and the railway line. The Sunshine Coast Tourist Bureau was formed. In February 1968, the first tourism delegation set off on a two-day promotional trip to Sydney and Melbourne to extol the virtues of this new Sunshine Coast where “there are so many fish in the river that you have to stand behind a tree to bait your line”. There was some controversy because while the trip didn’t cost ratepayers, most of whom weren’t particularly bothered whether there was a tourist industry or not, it was sponsored by the big land development company Alfred Grant, which was selling the expanding area of Bundilla Lakes behind Mooloolaba. It was the beginning of a wrangle between two schools of thought – “build and they will come” and “leave us in peace, we don’t want them” – which was to be a constant feature of the region for the next three decades. It heightened the rivalry with its glitzy

sibling the Gold Coast. While one was heading to high-rise and glamour holidays, the other was capitalising on its natural beauty and family friendliness, which only fuelled the development controversy.

1971-79 – GROWING UP AND LEARNING THE ROPES East-West Airlines made its first direct flight from Sydney and was considering regular flights at a time when “only jackasses and magpies landed at Maroochy Airport” (later to become the Sunshine Coast Airport). Within a decade, there were enough passengers for the airport to be upgraded to jet standard. In 1973, Maroochy became the Sunshine Coast’s first shire to gazette a town planning scheme and it was time for some serious infrastructure. Town water and sewerage connections, kerb and channelling and sealed roads were in the spotlight, and sports facilities, libraries and child-care centres became part of the landscape. The 11-storey Maroochy Sands became the region’s first high-rise in 1973, heightening fears the region was “becoming another Gold Coast”. The first volleys in the great high-rise debate were being fired. A landscape architect, unheard of before then, was employed and log fencing went up along the waterfront to keep cars off the beach. Growing pains were worsening; so much to be done and so much vision needed

for what was shaping up as a fine future if it was handled properly. For example, it was a huge controversy when the little two-lane road that ran along the beachfront from Aerodrome Road to the Boolarong was replaced with four lanes and called Alexandra Parade. Man-made tourist attractions began to pop up. The House of Bottles in Tewantin, Queensland’s first ‘big’ attraction in 1966, was joined by the Big Pineapple in 1971. It soon became Australia’s most visited attraction. The Fairytale Castle opened at Bli Bli in 1973, and the Big Cow near Nambour in 1976. Chifley’s Hotel had a thriving trade at Alexandra Headland and the Boolarong was no longer the only quality restaurant. John Douglas brought upmarket dining to Mooloolaba. Noosa had its own thriving restaurant scene and made news when it was mentioned as the holiday destination of a character in the TV soapie Number 96. The beaches, though, were still the main attraction. In 1975, Des Scanlan introduced the first air and sea rescue helicopter service, based at his Big Cow attraction. It was moved to the airport in 1983.

COVER STORY to the national stage as a beautiful but still relatively undeveloped area with one of the fastest-growing populations in the country. Tourism was taking off and there was a building frenzy to exploit this new pot of property and tourism gold. But the burgeoning growth was becoming unwieldy and in the tumultuous ’80s, development, six-storey limits, beach shadows and population caps dominated the headlines as well as conversations from backyard barbecues to council chambers. The fear of “ending up like the Gold Coast” was at fever pitch. Locals were split between enjoying the services, conveniences, employment and entertainment versus tolerating crowded roads and beaches, and seeing unit blocks take over the landscape. The opening of The Sands shopping centre in September 1980 meant no more shopping expeditions to Brisbane. The three local councils were swamped as applications flooded in to provide housing in all forms – subdivisions of all sizes, canal developments, and beachfront apartments from six-packs to medium- and high-rise towers. The State Government, if called in to over-ride council decisions, usually came down on the side of the development industry with “ministerial rezonings”. It was the Bjelke-Petersen era and Russ Hinze was the Minister for Everything. The Gold Coaster who made little secret of his white shoes, wasn’t overly sympathetic to cries of “no more high-rise”. The opening of Corbould Park Racecourse in July 1985 was a symbol of the Coast’s coming of age – but change wasn’t coming easily.

1988-97 – A YOUNG ADULT WORKS ON ITS FUTURE And still they arrived, for a holiday or a sea change. Tower blocks changed the face of Mooloolaba and old holiday shacks were disappearing to make way for higher density living. Couer de Lion opened the five-star Hyatt at Yaroomba, and Novotel opened at Twin Waters. Many locals began to feel disenfranchised as the region’s primary

production economy evolved into development and tourism. The first stage of the Sunshine Motorway opened in January 1990. Finally, there was a new bridge over the Maroochy River to bypass the trip over the David Low Bridge at Bli Bli, which had first made the northern connection in 1959. The new motorway, though, had three toll booths. Tollbusters swung into action and tolls were removed in 1996. Maroochydore was transitioning from old beach town to serious commercial centre. The Sands provided the foundations for Sunshine Plaza, which opened in 1994 as the region’s major shopping centres. Butts shopping centre was converted into

Town, Forest Glen Deer Sanctuary, Aussie World the Ettamogah Pub, Bellingham Maze and Superbee. Beerwah’s Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park was yet to become Australia Zoo. Many were soon struggling though. It was hard to compete with the Gold Coast’s Dreamworld.

1998-2007 – PUTTING DOWN ROOTS Many of the old development issues were resolving themselves. Developer versus green battles had been won and lost, and the amount of land suitable to inspire argument about its future use was rapidly diminishing. Projects once heartily protested, by the turn of the century had become home to a whole

the Big Top. Duporth Avenue no longer looked like the main street. By 1996, the Sunshine Coast was the 12th largest community in Australia after growing at a rate well above the national average for more than 30 years. The Sunshine Coast University College opened in 1996 with 524 students and was “on target to enrol more than 2000 by the turn of the century” by which time it had become the University of the Sunshine Coast. In 2015, there were 12,000 students. There were also TAFE colleges and private schools; private hospitals as well as the ever-expanding Nambour Hospital and shopping centres. Built attractions capitalised on holidays crowds. The Big Pineapple, bypassed by the Bruce Highway in 1990, lost its supremacy, but there was now Underwater World, Ginger

new generation of newcomers who had no idea their backyard was once an orange orchard or a pineapple or cane farm. Few cared about what the Gold Coast was doing; this Sunshine Coast was perfect. After another boom and bust cycle, the population hit 186,000 before the turn of the millennium. A ‘housing estate’ was just so last decade. Now there were master-planned communities, education or waterfront precincts, and residential projects, not estates. More sensitive development with vastly increased landscaping budgets and larger parks was driven more by economics than environment; by consumers not conservationists. Maroochy Shire was the fifth fastest growing of 825 local government areas in Australia.

Talk turned to creating a coastal city. Funnily enough it was the State Government that said its SEQ 2001 project’s regional approach would put an end to the debate once and for all as it offered local authorities the opportunity to work together while allowing communities to retain their identities, effectively removing any need for a coast city. But in the end that move came from the State Government, and not the parochialism of the three shires which had become fiercely competitive in claiming their slice of the Sunshine Coast.

2008-2017 – REACHING MATURITY The Sunshine Coast Regional Council was formed in 2008, although Noosa withdrew six years later. The population had grown at a whirlwind pace. Predictions that it would hit 250,000 had been met with some scepticism, but already it was closer to 300,000. Many of the tourist attractions were gone and Sunshine Plantation went into receivership in 2009. Tastes had changed. Another bridge went over the Maroochy River and the Sunshine Motorway became a four-lane highway from Mooloolaba to Pacific Paradise to cope with the traffic. Maroochydore was firmly established as the key regional centre. The attitude to growth had changed and acceptance became the norm. The old ways were gone forever. It could be that population growth was so enormous that acceptance arrived by sheer weight of numbers; that environmental activists were achieving their goals; or that the development industry was doing its job well – or even a combination of all three. It could also be said that the Sunshine Coast itself has grown up. Estates and high-rise apartments that were once the subject of hot contention and are now attractive and desirable places to live. Growing population is a fait accompli. The only certainty is that the population will continue to grow and it is in everyone’s best interests that our most precious asset, our natural environment, is looked after. The Sunshine Coast is sitting much more comfortably in its skin.

2017 Retirement Forum The Countdown to Retirement Consider this… If you stopped work today, at age 60, you will likely be retired for 24 years, according to The Australia Bureau of Statistics. That’s the same as if you had stopped work in 1991. How much has life changed since then? Imagine having not worked for the last 24 years! Wow! But that’s effectively all retirement is! The decision to stop work, live from your life’s savings and super, and try to maintain a reasonable standard of living will be the biggest single financial decision you’ll ever make. Who’d attempt that without some expert advice? So, maybe you are saying to yourself that you could adjust to a lower income. That’s a brave decision in itself, but you need to be sure you are not missing out on anything you are entitled to. And its not just about finance. You need to ensure you

keep your mind and body active in your leisure years too. So where do you start? You get informed by educating yourself and seeking advice from experienced professionals. When you are dealing with a family company like ours, that has been helping people with their retirement for more than 27 years, you find yourself in capable hands. No matter what you do… we ‘get’ you. Our clients range from retired business people to retirees who are reliant on Centrelink.

SLAMMINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; START FOR NEW POETRY COMPETITION The region is set to host its first Poetry Slam Championships next month as part of the second annual Sunshine Coast International Readers and Writers Festival. The championships are an official component of the 10-heat Queensland Slam Poetry Festival. The championships will be held from 6pm on August 12 at the Coolum Civic Centre and will feature performances by national champion Zohab Zee Khan (pictured) and award-winning Sunshine Coast slam poet Gabriella Salmon as well as Barry Charles, Jay Bishoff, Andrea Kirwan, Sharon Brooks and hip hop band, The Lyrical. Tickets are $45 adults and $15 for students aged 13 to 18 and are available at sunshinecoastreadersandwritersfestival.com.

WANTED: 100 PEOPLE TO SLEEP ROUGH FOR A CAUSE There are more than 100,000 people who are homeless around the country every night and almost half of them are under 25 years old. Fusion Sunshine Coast is challenging 100 people to give up their bed and sleep rough at either the University of the Sunshine Coast or The Shack in Nambour to help to raise $10,000 for Fusionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preventative youth programs and to support the tireless work carried out at The Shack. Participants of the fifth annual event will spend the night of August 12 sleeping in their cars or in a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cardboard cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of used refrigerator boxes. For more information, visit sleepinyourcar.com.au or call 5476 5033.

Improvements to the Sunshine Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beaches, expansion of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conservation estate and enhanced river catchments will be delivered through the 2017â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18 Environment Levy Program endorsed by the Sunshine Coast Council. The Environment Levy will generate around $9.8 million in 2017â&#x20AC;&#x201C;18. Investments over the coming year will include $3.195 million for the acquisition and establishment of environmental lands, $850,000 towards coastal rehabilitation activities, $402,000 towards river restoration projects in the Pumicestone Passage, Mooloolah River, Maroochy River and Mary River catchments, and $730,000 towards pest management projects.

POSTAL VOTE ON MARRIAGE EQUALITY The debate over same-sex marriage is once again in the spotlight. Liberal Party politician Peter Dutton has called for a national postal vote on whether to legalise same-sex marriage. This comes after the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial plan for a $180 million in-person same-sex marriage ballot was called off by senators from Labor, the Greens and the Nick Xenophon Team last year. Dutton says there was a need to settle the matter â&#x20AC;&#x153;one way or the otherâ&#x20AC;? before the next election and argues the postal vote will be a cheaper option than the previously suggested referendum.

BUILDING INTER-GENERATIONAL CONNECTIONS Sunshine Coast locals will be among the first in Australia to participate in the genXchange experience. The aim of the program, which was designed by Charlotte Rose Mellis, is to connect seniors with young people to allow them to exchange valuable wisdom for modern skills. Sunshine Coast seniors aged over 65 are invited to attend the launch party at 11am on August 1 at the Maroochydore Library. University of the Sunshine Coast students are eager to match with seniors, who can register for the four-month garden project with Maroochydore Neighbourhood Centre, walking programs, tech sessions at the Maroochydore Library and general #Genfriends social events with participating local cafes.

STUDENTS TAKE PART IN PLASTIC FREE JULY

Markela Georgas and Harriet Bryant with Tim Silverwood at Coolum Beach

Environmentalist and eco-enterprise founder Tim Silverwood has been on a mission to reduce plastic pollution entering beaches and waterways around the world for the past six years. He joined Sunshine Coast students at a Unitywatersponsored beach clean-up event to reduce the amount of plastic at Coolum. The Sunshine Coast Council’s support for Plastic Free July follows the conclusion of a year-long marine debris trial, tracking a number of beach clean-ups on the Coast. In a period of four months earlier this year, Ocean Crusaders, removed 3493 plastic bottles and 2659 plastic bags from the environment.

COAST GLAMPING RESORT RATED THE NATION’S BEST It has been operating for less than a year, but the Rivershore Resort at Diddillibah is already rated the best of the 180 BIG4 holiday parks in Australia. Rivershore, which caters for campers, caravans and those seeking a glamping experience, has scored an average of 9.6 out of 10 from guests since it opened last August. Rivershore is owned by the Sunshine Coast’s McGovern family, which built the facility from scratch. The Driftwood restaurant at the resort is open to the public, as are its heated swimming pool, kids’ playground and other entertainment attractions, which can be accessed with a day pass.

200 EVENTS

The Horizon Festival program has been released and there is no doubt the 10-day festival will take the Coast by storm next month. The comprehensive program is bursting with local, national and international artists. There will be something for everyone from August 25 to September 3. Take off your shoes and explore the 10-metre-high Architects of Air’s Arboria Luminarium, rock out at Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival, lose yourself in a dance theatre work based on the life of Vincent Van Gogh, enjoy side-splitting comedy with Akmal or Anh Do, arts-filled weekends in Maleny and Eumundi, or the Horizon Underground fringe festival in Nambour.

VALDORA SOLAR FARM SWITCHED ON

NATURE GIVES MIDGE CONTROL A HELPING HAND

The Sunshine Coast Council has become the first local government in Australia to offset 100 per cent of its electricity consumption across all its facilities and operations with renewable energy. Mayor Mark Jamieson flicked the switch on the new 15-megawatt solar farm earlier this week. The farm will connect to Energy Queensland’s electricity grid and is set to deliver $22 million in savings for ratepayers over the next 30 years.

Mother Nature has beaten the Sunshine Coast Council to the chase in the battle to control biting midges this year. The council has manually closed the entrance to Currimundi Lake in late August to early September every year to combat the biting midge breeding cycle by flooding its preferred environment. This year, the lake closed naturally six weeks earlier than the scheduled council works. Division 3 councillor Peter Cox says the council will monitor the progress of the breeding season with the aim of intervening only if needed. The lake is still open to the public for swimming and recreation.

YOUR NEW LIFE BY THE BEACH AWAITS Land is now selling in this connected coastal village, where the beach is on your doorstep and future shops, cafes and over 5 hectares of open space are just a stroll away.

PROFILE

TENSIONS RUN HIGH IN MALENY AUTHOR’S THIRD NOVEL Who pays the price when development proposals threaten a community’s social cohesion? My Weekly Preview met with award-winning writer Steven Lang at his Maleny home to discuss his new novel Hinterland, a uniquely local story with global implications. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

S

teven Lang’s love of words and story stretches back to the age of four – the age he first knew he wanted to be a writer. Told it wasn’t possible and sent to boarding school at the age of nine, Lang struggled with the expectations placed upon him by his family and the constraints of the Scottish class system. Born in Paisley in 1951, it was a foregone conclusion he’d follow his father, grandfather and great-grandfather into the family’s leather tanning business, but Lang had other ideas. Emerging from his unhappy school years with an urgent need to escape Scotland, he set off on a hitchhiking trip around America, buoyed by the work of Jack Kerouac and armed with journals, which he wrote for many years, boosting his confidence as a writer. “I had a bad time at boarding school and I didn’t like Scottish culture,” he says. “There was a very rigorous class structure and I was from the upper middle class. Everything was delineated by the way you spoke. Everybody could tell which part of society you were from by the way you spoke. It was difficult to relate to people; I couldn’t stand it.” Arriving in Sydney in 1970, he felt immediately comfortable and lived in Glebe, the Blue Mountains and the far south coast of New South Wales before arriving in Maleny in 1989. Within six months of arriving, he knew he’d found his home. Surrounded by nature and a creative community, he finally published his first novel, the award-winning An Accidental Terrorist, at the age of 54. Now, the eclectic town he’s called home for almost 30 years has become the inspiration for his third novel, Hinterland. Echoing his early years in Scotland, Hinterland has social separation at it’s heart. Set in the fictional town of Winderran, it’s receiving some of the best reviews of his career and will strike a chord with many Sunshine Coast locals. A new dam proposal is dividing Winderran’s townsfolk along unpredictable

lines and the emotionally charged narrative explores the tribalism that arises when development proposals expose conflicting human values, bringing ugly behaviour to beautiful landscapes. “Some of the old settlers are deeply committed to conservation and that’s what makes it interesting,” Lang says. “This is Queensland and there are people who are wedded to the National Party and other people who are wedded to the Labor Party or progressive politics. I’m interested in those dynamics. The people who believe in the ideas on the opposing side to you have in their minds logical arguments for why they believe what they believe and once you inhabit them, those ideas become reasonable.” Lang is a well-known environmental activist in Maleny, so you might expect him to push the green line in Hinterland, but he refrains from lecturing and instead, delves into the psychology driving each character, including the right-wingers, conservatives and politicians who hold viewpoints he’d probably disagree with in his own life. While some Malenyites may think they recognise themselves in the book, Lang sets them straight: “It’s a work of fiction. I don’t subscribe to the belief I can use other people’s

lives to people my novels. But I do put myself into every character. I have to get inside my life in order for them to breathe and feel things. When somebody feels grief, I have to imagine what it’s like to feel grief. I think that’s one of the reasons why people read novels – they want to know what it’s like to be somebody else. “I do feel I have a right to comment on place and social structures. That’s why I’ve set it in a place I know, because I want to talk about the dynamics that occur in country towns. We’re living in a country where the rule of law ensures things don’t get out of hand, but I still think the way we behave towards each other, those social groupings, tend to fracture whenever a distortion of conflict enters the town. “When I look at the dynamics of international politics and where civil war breaks out, how do these people who have been living there for generations separate into groups and kill each other? “It seems to me that Australians have this view of themselves that they couldn’t do that or wouldn’t do that; they’re somehow better people than the people who live in Africa or Syria. I think that’s an illusion and a dangerous illusion. I think we’re all capable of that. I

wanted to depict the cost that’s involved in allowing ourselves to separate into these groups.” “I’m curious to understand how it is countries like Australia manage to stay peaceful with the rule of law and another country doesn’t. I don’t think it’s anything to do with the individuals, I think it’s to do with the political structures that govern us. I can see if corruption became more endemic in Australian politics than it is at present, you could easily end up with the same sorts of things happening here as elsewhere.” Readers keen to know what happens next in the story will be pleased to know Lang is currently writing a sequel to Hinterland. He’s happy with the book and the mostly positive reviews it has received, saying anyone who says they don’t read reviews is lying, because as a writer, you’re desperate for feedback. He does, however, try to keep things in perspective. “You can’t become too precious about it because really it’s just entertainment. Reading a novel is a very sophisticated form of entertainment, but it’s still entertainment. You have to try not to get too pretentious about what you’re trying to achieve. But it is also a special form of entertainment. I don’t think there is any other situation in life where we give so much attention to another person as when we read a novel. With a novel, you sit down for 20 hours with someone else’s mind and you give yourself over to it.” Seeking connection with others, as much as his love of language, is what drives Lang to keep writing and while he feels he still hasn’t quite mastered his art, he has found his “métier”. It may have taken 50 years, but the four-year-old boy has realised his dream.

FORMER TEN TENOR TO CONDUCT ANNIVERSARY CONCERT Kim Kirkman is the man chosen to lead Our Sunshine Coast, the largest concert the region has ever seen. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

R

emember the Big Beer ad, where a whole bunch of guys run across an open field with dramatic classical music playing? I can almost hear you humming the tune. The fact that this piece of music, the start of the Carmina Burana by Carl Orff, is about to celebrate its 80th anniversary, was the start of “a crazy idea” for Kim Kirkman. The former Ten Tenor music director and singer and CQ University composition lecturer is spearheading a musical event of mammoth proportions, unlike anything we have seen on the Sunshine Coast and it is all to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast. Kirkman, who lives at Conondale, has joined forces with the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra, plus a 100-strong children’s choir and another 200 adult singers, to bring the free Our Sunshine Coast concert to life. The powerful ensemble will perform Orff’s O Fortuna as well as a medley of Beatles hits, which Kirkman says is a tribute to the era in which the region was named. A troupe of 120 Golden Beach State School students will perform to the medley with “every dance move out of Nancy Sinatra’s playbook from the ‘60s”.

The winners of the Songs of the Sunshine Coast competition will also be up for the performance of a lifetime, as they share their songwriting talents with the backing of the choirs and orchestra. Kirkman says 23 songs were submitted into the competition and Mason Hope’s pop song The Sunshine Coast won the youth section, Michael Barry’s reggae rap Livin’ in

“This is such an exciting thing to bring to the community…”

the Sunshine won the open section and Karen Law’s folk ode to Nambour, Sweet in the Morning, was announced the open runner-up. The 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast will be officially commemorated on August 1, but the family concert will be held on August 6 and one of the region’s favourite performers, Darren Percival, will MC the event. Rehearsals for the concert have been a sight to behold. The performers almost fill a 600-seat venue when they all get together and as the conductor for the concert, Kirkman says spectators will be in for a truly moving and powerful experience. “All I do is turn up and wave my hands a bit. I have conducted quite a few big events and run a few orchestras. I conducted the 4MK Carols in Mackay for the last 10 years and that was a 19-piece big band and 60 singers – this one is a little bit bigger,” he quips. “But you get the idea of how to work with people and everyone’s a volunteer. They are so enthusiastic. This is such an exciting thing to bring to the community and the performers come from a range of ages and locations across the region – even from the Moreton Bay region. Our oldest performer is

Does Your Immune System Often Crash? Stuck in bed for days or weeks after a stressful time? Always Getting Colds and Flu?

We want you to enjoy the fruits of our labour

Have you ever wondered why some people suffer with an immune crash right after intense exercising or high work load without enough downtime? Whether it’s a cold or flu, virus, or adrenal fatigue, it could result in a week or two in bed recovering. During ongoing stress, hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin are produced in high quantities helping you keep up with the extra demands on your body for the short term. When the time comes to rest, the adrenalin stops pumping, which has an effect on your overall hormonal balance, causing the stress hormone cortisol to also drop. For those who suffer with a relatively low immune system, which you may not notice until this time, the adrenal fatigue triggers an acute response, rendering you susceptible to infection.

Approximately 90% of our population carry a toxic bacteria contracted through travel, or contact with others, which has a substantial impact on your immune system, and recovery from stress.

At Ord Minnett Buderim, we work hard to get the balance of your investment portfolio right, so it will be well placed to weather any stock market fluctuations and mature to generate a better yield. So you will find our prudent wealth management doesn’t just provide a stable income for your retirement – it also offers peace of mind. Talk to us today about how we can tailor an effective strategy to improve your financial position and reach your investment goals.

Bacteria are the most common cause of your poor immune response during times of stress, as they have a negative effect on the levels of immune boosting beneficial bacteria in your gut. Certain bacteria produce a toxin in quantities that far outweigh what should be circulating in your system. High levels of toxins produced and then not removed, lead to colds and flu, pain and muscle tension, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and mental health symptoms such as fogginess, insomnia, depression, anxiety, heart palpitations, and nervous system problems. Focussing on your immune system through times of stress, and developing a strong defence against adrenal fatigue will help. Complete recovery can take a few months, though the positive effects are noticed within 2 weeks. If you feel you may be suffering with this type of immune imbalance, consider getting help, as it only continues to cause gut depletion of nutrients and poor immunity further over time, affecting energy production and your mental state as you age, for life.

WHITEHAVEN COAL – SEVEN WAYS TO GROW

W

hitehaven Coal (WHC) is the largest pure-play coal exposure on the ASX, with current production of around 21 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa). The significant recovery in coal markets in the past 18 months has allowed rapid debt repayment and a transformation of the capital structure. As such, Whitehaven is well-positioned to pursue numerous potential avenues for production growth. Ord Minnett views Whitehaven as a high-quality coal producer with 79 per cent of forecast production coming from its two best assets, the Narrabri and Maules Creek operations. These assets have long mine lives of 39 years and 25 years, respectively,

based on current production plans and reserves. The company has a strong management team, a transformed balance sheet (we expect Whitehaven to be in a net cash position by December 2017) and very high free cash flows (circa $650 million in FY18 and showing a 20 per cent free cash flow yield). We recently initiated coverage on Whitehaven with a ‘Buy’ recommendation and a target price of $3.50 a share, implying a 12-month total return of around 24 per cent. We expect dividends will resume in February 2018, but this could happen as early as August 2017. Whitehaven is well-positioned to pursue numerous avenues for production growth over and above our base-case scenario. In our recent report, we assessed seven different growth options which, in our view, Whitehaven is likely to consider. We conclude there is a total of around $760 million (circa $0.74 a share) of potential additional value in the stock, which would lift our valuation to $4.24 from $3.50. The shares currently trade around the $2.85 mark. The seven growth options are: 1. Maules Creek expansion – Maules Creek has saleable product of just under 12Mtpa. With extra mining equipment and requisite approvals this could increase to 16Mtpa. This would add $0.51 a share to our valuation.

2. Narrabri incremental tonnes – We assume production remains steady around 8.5Mtpa, however, the project has approval for up to 11Mtpa. A bull-case scenario of an extra 0.5Mtpa adds $0.10 per share to our valuation. 3. Narrabri life extension – Additional exploration could lead to a meaningful increase in current reserves as the resource base is enormous. 4. Narrabri buyout – Whitehaven owns 70 per cent of Narrabri, so there is potential to buy out the four minority partners that each own a 7.5 per cent stake in the project. 5. Vickery project – The company is likely to seek approval to expand this project from 4.5Mtpa to 10Mtpa – this would add $0.10 a share to our valuation 6. Tarrawonga infrastructure – After the Vickery development, Tarrawonga could use some of the new infrastructure, such as the rail line and the wash plant. This would add $0.02 a share to our valuation. 7. Tarrawonga production – Whitehaven could increase production from 2Mtpa to 3Mtpa, adding $0.07 a share to our valuation.

FOOD IS OUR FUTURE Freeze Dry Industries has opened a stateof-the-art manufacturing facility that the council says will add significantly to the region’s food and agribusiness sector. The manufacturing facility, based in Yandina, is the first of its kind in Queensland and uses the latest technology freeze dryers to dry Australian fruits and vegetables to develop nutritional products. Mayor Mark Jamieson (pictured with Freeze Dry CEO Michael Buckley and FAN general manager Emma Greenhatch) says the region is fast becoming an Australian food innovation and nutrition powerhouse. He cites successful local businesses such as Gourmet Garden, COYO and Country Chef. “The food and agribusiness industry is one of the seven high-value industries identified in our Regional Economic Development Strategy, and currently contributes more than $670 million to our local economy,” Jamieson says.

MY OPINION

PICTURES OF LOVE AND LOSS

TIME TO CELEBRATE OUR COAST

Sami Muirhead is grabbing her coloured chalk and heading to Buderim for Chalk the Walk on July 30, a heartwarming day to remember lost loved ones.

Rebecca Grisman says the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast is a great opportunity to savour our great region.

D

ealing with death is horrible. Living with depression and loss and grief and the stress of life can be really overwhelming. And we tend to not openly discuss these issues and feelings in a casual environment. Going to a graveside is often just too hard and confronting and the Aussie way is to just bottle things up and get on with it. But Lu and Brent Crosby, from Team Adem, have started a special day where the whole Coast is invited to come and send a message of love and hope and inspiration to any loved one you may have lost or to anyone who is doing it tough. Chalk The Walk 2017 is on Sunday, July 30 at the Buderim Lion’s Park. It is unique and began last year, offering the opportunity for kids and adults to write or draw a picture on the footpath to send to their loved one in heaven or hospital. It was an incredibly beautiful and powerful few hours. “Most of us know someone in our extended family or friendship circle who has passed away, so we were not surprised by the amount of interest and participation at our inaugural Chalk The Walk event”, said Brent Crosby. “However we were surprised about the efforts and details many people put into their drawings and messages. Many parents on the day told us this was a lovely way for their children to express their feelings through the medium of bright and colourful chalk drawings”, he added. The Crosby family lost their son and

brother to leukaemia in 2013. Since losing Adem they have fought to bring positives to hundreds of thousands of others. The Adem Crosby Centre is now open at our new hospital, changing the lives of so many locals who now do not have to drive to Brisbane for treatment. And Team Adem recently celebrated saving 50,000 lives with their blood donation initiatives. The anchor of another amazing family, Sonya Ackerman, lost her son James after a football tackle ended in his sad death. “My hubby and I took James’ kids last year to the Chalk The Walk. We all took great comfort in being able to express our heartache through something so therapeutic. Who would have thought pastel coloured chalk could do that? But it did! At such a gorgeous location on such a gorgeous day, we felt so close to ‘Daddy’ in heaven as we all sat together on the concrete and talked about things that reminded us that Daddy was always here with us, things that Daddy loved, and things Daddy loved doing with his babies”, Sonya said. “Before we knew it we were drawing rainbows, fish and the sun all in bright happy colours. Being surrounded by so many other families also hurting from the loss of a loved one showed us that we are not alone.” So, hopefully I will see you there. Trust me, there will be thousands of angels converging in the skies above Buderim on the last Sunday of this month looking down at us, the lucky ones who get to live each day.

rom August 1, the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast begins and there is an impressive range of events planned across our region for all ages and interests. The full program on the council’s website features everything from poetry trails to sailors’ tales. I’m especially keen to see the Festival of Sand sculptural event at Mooloolaba Beach and the exhibition at Landsborough Shire Museum of stories and events that have hit the headlines over the past five decades. I am sure that the Sunshine Coast Open House event will also offer some interesting insights into how architectural trends have shaped our local lifestyle when various buildings throughout the Coast are opened to the public. There are stories behind the doors and within the walls of buildings that many of us only know from the street. I’ve gathered many memories and visceral feelings for places across the Coast that evoke memories of milestones, and no doubt many local people or visitors feel the same way when we look back at how our Coast has transformed over time. Fifty years can fly by, it seems. It’s already 23 years since I first surveyed the empty cane field of the planned university campus and now just standing in the forecourt of the iconic library makes me tearily proud. Every time I enter Mary Cairncross Reserve I’m struck with awe at its natural

beauty and wonder at the foresight and resilience of the first settlers on its land. When I walk the pathways from Kings Beach and up the rise to the headland I read the names of the numerous plaques dedicated to the men and women who served in Australia’s military forces. I pause at the Centaur Park memorial, set up by Rotary almost 50 years ago in remembrance of the Australian Hospital Ship Centaur which sunk during World War II. In the council’s foyers I often stop to look

“I hope to see you by the sandcastles, under the trees, at the concerts” at the framed faces of all our past mayors and wonder what they thought and hoped their legacy would be. There are many spaces throughout our region that reflect and represent the aims, vision and efforts of generations of Sunshine Coasters. It is exciting to see so many towns, groups and businesses getting involved and ready to shine for the naming anniversary. It is a wonderful time to celebrate where we live, all we have and the community unity that we enjoy – and it’s a reminder to look forward to our future. I hope to see you by the sandcastles, under the trees, at the concerts, in the streets and around the traps.

JAZZ ROYALTY RETURNS

WHAT’S ON FRIDAY, 28 JULY

Galapagos Duck have performed all over the world and toured extensively throughout Australia, but their favourite gig was in an intimate venue in Nambour. The renowned jazz band have won national and international awards and performed and recorded with the likes of Nina Simone and Ray Charles, James Morrison, Tommy Emmanuel, Don Burrows, Winifred Atwell and The Australian Ballet. But it was headlining the 2016 inaugural Nambour Winter Jazz Fest held at The Bison Bar that bassist John Conley considers “the best gig of the whole Australian tour”. No wonder Conley is keen to return along with saxophonist Richard Booth, drummer Rodney Ford, keyboardist Wil Sargisson and sax player Willy Qua. The Nambour Winter Jazz Fest is on at the C-Square complex in Currie St on July 29 from noon. Tickets are $95 and are available at nambourwinterjazzfest.net.au.

GADENNE PROMOTION

TERRIFIC TRIMMERS It’s been a memorable 21 years for Gadenne Motor Trimming’s owners and staff.

L

ife could have been very different for Trevor and Hilda Watts if they hadn’t seen an ad spruiking a business for sale while they were holidaying in Mooloolaba. The Toowoomba couple, who were on the Sunshine Coast in April 1996, saw potential in the then 10-year-old Gadenne Motor Trimming business and just two months later, they had relocated and taken over the helm. Having owned and operated the successful Trevor the Trimmer business in Brisbane until 1988, the couple already knew a thing or two about what it took to stand out from the crowd and they quickly found their feet. They started out with help from one of former owner John Gadenne’s staff members and were soon joined by their youngest son Brenden, who also relocated from Toowoomba, to become an apprentice motor trimmer. “Brenden stayed on with us until late last year when he decided it’s time for a career change and joined the building industry,” Trevor says. “During his time with us, he took up the role of workshop manager, which allowed me to semi-retire for a period of time so as my wife and I could do some caravanning together. “Brenden’s efforts during these years helped our business obtain many awards for his talented skills.” The business will celebrate its 21st anniversary under Watts’ watch this year and in that time, he has trained up four apprentices and assisted many more with job or school work experience. In November last year, Peter Mackenzie came on board as

Trevor & Hilda Watts

motor trimmer and has joined Watts “on the tools”. “Since Peter has joined our business our work load has continued to flourish. We are now awaiting our next member to join our team in August,” Trevor says. With countless makes and models of cars, motorbikes and boats to work on, the team has seen it all when it comes to requests for retrims, custom designs, restoration and convertible soft-top repairs.

Pacific Motor Group would like to congratulate Trevor and his family on a successful 21 years of trading on the Sunshine Coast. Thanks Trevor for your outstanding service, it’s a pleasure doing business with another local business. 721-723 Nicklin Way CURRIMUNDI. Phone 5438 4888 120-126 Sugar Road MAROOCHYDORE.

GADENNE PROMOTION so, the staff have thrown their time and skills into a number of charity projects to give back to the Sunshine Coast community. These include The House the Coast Built, local church group projects and working with schools and sporting clubs. But Trevor says the biggest project they have undertaken was a 1972 HQ Monaro makeover for the Saez family on Domestic Blitz, which they completed with the help and support of a number of local businesses. In the 2008 Channel Nine TV special Sunshine Coast businesses pitched in to rebuild the Alexandra Headlands home of Bianca Saez, who has debilitating Tourette

“Remember, a cheap job is not good, and a good job is not cheap”

Peter is in the middle of a refurbishment on a 1968 Fiat sports coupe and Trevor says the industry has come forward in leaps and bounds since he first entered in 1971. “Things were very basic back then,” Trevor says. “Today, motor mechanics for modern cars have access to manuals and computers to assist their jobs but working on older vehicles means something can take that bit extra time as we do not have coursers or manuals available to us, so YouTube and Google have been helpful from time to time.” The challenge is something the team thrives on. So much

Syndrome. It was a show that captivated the hearts of people around the country, and Trevor says they are proud to have been part of it. The workmanship of the small but incredibly talented team is second-to-none and they have an impressive array of motor and hot rod industry awards to show for it. Among them is Top Commodore in Australia, Top Tudor for two consecutive years, and Brisbane Hot Rod Show and People’s Choice in 2015, just to name a few. “The motor industry on the Sunshine Coast has been kind to us over the years with many dealerships choosing our work skills for various types of work, leather in new cars, seat

modifications, tonneau covers and along with their used car work and warranty replacement work,” Trevor says. The secret to business longevity is a coveted one, but Trevor says it’s all about knowing your competitors and being willing to go over and above when it comes to service and price. “Remember, a cheap job is not good, and a good job is not cheap,” he says. Being “on the tools” is getting harder for Trevor, who is heading towards his mid-sixties. He admits his role is now more akin to “manager, cleaner, tea person, accounts and paymaster,” while managing the ever-present waiting list for major jobs to be carried out. Although the caravan may once again come a-calling, Trevor says he is forever grateful for the support he and Hilda have received from friends, business acquaintance and their many loyal customers over the past 21 years in business.

OUR 50TH YEAR

LOW TAKES THE HIGH ROAD David Low championed the coastal road between Maroochydore and Noosa to which he gave his name but, writes Dot Whittington, he had his share of battles along the way.

Poona Dam construction site; leading a ceremony after the first plane touches down at the Pacific Paradise airstrip in 1959; inset Dave Low, 1960

A

state member for 27 years and Maroochy Shire chairman for 15, Dave Low’s name is preserved by the David Low Way, but he was behind the Sunshine Coast Airport, Wappa, Cooloolabin and Poona dams and was part of the local fabric all his life. David Alan Low was born at Yandina in 1911, the grandson of district pioneer James Low. His grandmother Christina became the first European woman to settle on the Sunshine Coast when she married James in 1861. Their eldest son, John, had nine children, Dave being the youngest. He went to Nambour State, Yandina Rural and Nambour High schools, started work as a railway clerk at Nambour in 1926 and married Claudia Ritchie in 1939. In 1946, Dave Low threw his hat in the ring for the Country Party in the state seat of Cooroora, which was being vacated by Gympie’s Harry Walker. He had held the seat for the Country Party for almost 40 years

since its formation in 1912. There were eight nominees for Cooroora in 1946, David A. Low among them, along with his cousin William J. Low of Eumundi, a primary producer and businessman. The other candidates were all farmers. Dave Low won the preselection but his cousin wasn’t at all pleased, appealed the decision on the ground of irregularities and declared he would run as an independent when his appeal was dismissed. With an election coming up in May 1947, it was reported that the Country Party was calculating on the probable loss of the blue-ribbon seat because the feud between the “country cousins” Dave Low, who had been endorsed, and William would help the Labor candidate Bob Spencer win. The Chronicle dedicated a poem to the spat, which starts: “Now the Country Party Lows are awful deadly foes. And there’s trouble round Cooroora countryside. “Two cousins sought selection for the

coming state election. And soon each had an army at his side.” A month out from the poll in April 1947, Opposition leader Frank Nicklin, also a Country Party member, entered the fray and said there was only one Country Party candidate, and it was David Low. “Anyone else claiming to represent the Country Party,” Mr Nicklin said, “was purely and simply nothing but an Independent and had no connection with the Country Party.” For his part, Dave Low in a “vigorous, constructive address” referred to the condition of the roads in the Maroochy Shire and over the Cooroora electorate, and stressed the need for “a more liberal consideration by the government towards local authorities.” He advocated for better facilities at the Nambour Hospital to include a separate children’s ward, infectious diseases ward, and additions to the maternity section. He won the election: Low 1112 votes, Spencer 948, Gresham 818, and W. Low 601.

And thus began his push for State Treasury to support local government. In his maiden speech, he mentioned the “seaside interest” and pressed the region’s contribution to the state economy. In 1952, unhappy with the attitude of incumbent Maroochy Shire chairman Andrew Thompson, he decided to run for the role, with the support of the Council of Progress Associations. Low favoured a road along the coast to connect Caloundra and Noosa. Thompson said it was too costly and proposed better roads connecting the hinterland towns and the coast to serve tourist and rural industries. Low won and two years later, fearing Landsborough Shire would win its bid for a Caloundra airport, he pushed for an area he had selected at Mudjimba for an airport. Next, he needed a road to connect the airport with Nambour. The David Low Bridge at Bli Bli took two years to build and opened in 1959. He still couldn’t win state funding for his highway, so, he and Nicklin persuaded the government to introduce a Coastal Land Development Scheme, in which the big property players would develop the highway in return for land grants which were to be built into subdivided leasehold allotments. The Crown would receive a small percentage and the developer the rest to cover financial risk and construction costs. Construction on the first stage started in 1959 and the course was set for the future Dave Low was 63 when he died in 1974, six days after resigning from parliament.

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 editorial@myweeklypreview.com.au.

ENGAGEMENT KEY TO AUTHENTIC COMMUNITIES Developers are seeking innovative ways to create connections within Sunshine Coast neighbourhoods.

P

roperty developers are increasingly using engagement as a strategy to create ‘authentic’ communities in new residential developments. No longer is it just about delivering the built form, property developers now have a responsibility to create a community experience in developments. AVID Property Group general manager Queensland Bruce Harper says AVID is increasingly looking for ways to actively contribute, long term, to the communities they build. “It can be challenging for a genuine sense of community to develop in new masterplanned developments, which is why engagement is so important right from the early stages of the project,” he says. “Creating a sense of place in new developments is essential for residents to feel connected to the area and actively participate in the community. “Engaging the community in the early stages of the project also allows us to identify and respond to future residents’ needs, rather than react to them after they move in.” Sunshine Coast resident Susana Waldron recently joined AVID Property Group as the

Susana Waldron

community development officer for the new $3 billion Harmony development. “People are having significantly less face-to-face contact with their neighbours than in times gone by, which means we are having to think of innovative ways to create opportunities for people to come together,” Waldron says.

“At Harmony, we are trying to create a sense of community even before the first residents arrive so that from the moment they enter the development, they feel connected. “We are looking forward to hosting a range of events that will kick off later this year that will assist residents to meet their

“People are having significantly less face-to-face contact with their neighbours” neighbours and form genuine relationships.” Common spaces, such as Harmony’s five hectare linear park, help to increase social interaction and support the natural growth of the community, she says.

RESULTS If you’re thinking about selling your home, now is the time – here are some of our success stories THE LOCAL BUYER SAW THE AD IN MWP AND BOUGHT THE PROPERTY The auction of a Minyama Island property attracted around 80 people - five registered bidders including an overseas participant. Bidding started at $3 million and quickly escalated. Then bidding went up in the 10’s quickly, reaching $3.9 million. It was sold to a local couple, who intend to make it their family home. This property has had three different agents during a timeframe of about four years and was twice marketed in the Sunshine Coast Daily. This time the print media partner was MWP exclusively, and it was where the buyer came from. Steve Turner Platinum Properties

150 ATTEND AUCTION 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. Loren Wimhurst Next Property Group

GENERATED MORE ENQUIRY IN OUR FIRST WEEK Through tracking our open home data, the numbers speak for themselves. When advertised in My Weekly Preview, attendances increase at our open homes by a factor of at least 2 to 3 times the enquiry. After being able to consistently deliver exceptional results for our clients due to engaging in a comprehensive print marketing campaign, we know the best way to ensure we are extracting the best price for our sellers is to advertise in My Weekly Preview. After recently taking on a listing that had previously only been listed online, we generated more enquiry in our first week through My Weekly Preview than they had experienced in the two months prior.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Holy Toledo, boy did J-Bay have everything, including smoking waves. For me, the stand out was the rookie Morais from Portugal. I cannot wait for Tahiti. Good news is that Julian got some solid points for his campaign. Hopefully he can back it up. This weekend the conditions look epic. The waves not so much, but hopefully you have had a good fill of waves recently. It’s been crowded, but don’t let that stop you. You might score some empty line ups as I did this morning. I saw some Indo footage from last week and it has been going off the hook! Might be a late effort from me this year.

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

Restless rams aren’t usually particularly house-proud. But pleasure-planet Venus is visiting your home zone from Monday until August 26. So it’s a terrific time to spruce up your domestic abode, enjoy Casa Aries, and entertain in style.

Are you behaving like a bull on steroids? This week, aim to be smart and sexy (rather than self-indulgent and extravagant). Venus gives social media a boost, as you communicate with family and friends and make influential connections online.

Venus shifts into your cash zone on Monday (where it stays until August 26) which is usually lucky financially. Don’t be extravagant though! You’ll find the more you respect and conserve money, the more cash will come your way.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

Your crab magnetism and powers of persuasion are on fire, as Venus vamps through your sign (from Monday until August 26). So it’s a wonderful week to pitch an idea or ask for a favour, as Venus helps you intuitively know the right thing to say.

The sun and Mars are moving through Leo, so your dynamic nature is on display for all to see. And then Friday’s Jupiter/Pluto square turbo-charges your tendency to overdo things. To promise the moon and then under-deliver.

Strive to get the balance right between maintaining the status quo and changing things. The trick is to keep what’s working and change what isn’t. Jupiter and Pluto also place money matters and friendship issues under the microscope.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

Harmonious Venus (your patron planet) moves through your career zone from Monday until August 26. Which will help you approach tasks with more creativity. And it should also lead to improved relationships with work colleagues.

Proceed carefully with all forms of communication this week. Otherwise you could provoke a negative response from a hidden enemy or a known frenemy! The Jupiter/Pluto square can also make you much more stubborn and self-critical.

Courtesy of the Jupiter/Pluto square, you could blow your budget with a spending spree. Or commit yourself to an project that you really don’t have the time (or enthusiasm) for. Big talk is no good if it doesn’t translate into long-term action.

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

The Jupiter/Pluto square boosts your desire for attention and success. Which certainly suits your drive and ambition. But it also fans your control-freak tendencies, which could end up alienating authority figures or loved ones (like your partner).

From Monday until August 26, lucky Venus blesses health and wellbeing, your daily routine, relations with work colleagues or your relationship with your favourite four-legged friend. But Friday’s feisty Jupiter/Pluto square could complicate travel plans.

Pleasure-planet Venus shifts into your entertainment zone until August 26. So it’s time to enjoy the good things in life – like good food, fine wine, parties, socialising, shopping, self-pampering and luxurious beauty treatments.

THE LAST WORD

OUT OF AFRICA While scientists study mosquitos and malaria, Richard O’Leary remembers his own brush with the disease.

H

ave I ever told you about the time I had malaria? No. Well you’d be one of the few who I haven’t regaled with my near-death experience in Africa. In my twenties it was one of my favourite dinner party stories, which I’d dig out of my kit bag of anecdotes, believing it made me look exotic and adventurous. It was my equivalent to the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game – you know the one, where you have to find the shortest path between an arbitrary actor and the star of Footloose. But I never needed six moves; I’d fine-tuned it to the point where it had become basically a word association game You ask for a beer. I mention Kenya’s favourite lager Tusker. Before you have twisted the top off I’m on to my malaria mishap. Looking back I find the story selfindulgent, and not that interesting.

I was bitten by a mosquito the first day I arrived in Nairobi and a few weeks later as we approached the source of the Nile in an old army truck I was flooded by fever, and became a source of fluids myself, as both ends of my body acted as major tributaries. I was lucky enough to be near a good health clinic in Kampala, where doctors put me on a drip of quinine and I was back on the road with my fellow travellers the next day. I don’t tell that story much anymore because I now realise how lucky I was to survive. Lucky I was near medical help and lucky that I was rich enough to afford it. Tragically 400,000 people still die every year from malaria, and many of the victims are children whose families can’t afford the drugs I was given. Which brings me to the point of mentioning my malaria story. In a reversal

of the usual rules, I am using it as a stepping stone to get the focus off me. British researchers have begun a study to try to explain why mosquitos attack some individuals in preference to others. Science already knows a few of the factors: people who breathe out more carbon dioxide, are taller or larger, or are pregnant are more susceptible. But science magazine Scientific American says these researchers are going one step further and trying to establish if genes play a role in why Anopheles mosquitos (a species that can transmit malaria) find some people more attractive. If successful it would allow scientists to develop a pill or medication to help the body create a natural repellent, a case of prevention being better than cure. Let’s hope it’s more accessible and affordable as well. olearylastword@gmail.com

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.
