f I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone joke about mental health, I’d be a wealthy woman, or at least well on my way. I’ve often wondered what the source of these misinformed comments is. Is it a lack of education, a lack of empathy or perhaps a display of embarrassment or awkwardness? What I do know is that having anxiety does not make you a ‘nutcase’ and depression does not make you ‘weird’. It certainly does not make you weak. Support service Beyond Blue estimates that 45 per cent of the population will experience a mental health condition at some point. In any one year, around one million Australian adults have depression and more than two million suffer from the crippling disease that is anxiety. This disease does not discriminate and just like any physical disease, it’s real. These important facts – and the shocking suicide statistics affecting our country – cannot be ignored. Asking for help, offering help and being aware of the symptoms, is a step in the right direction. And, breaking down the stigma associated with mental health is just as important. This is why I’m a supporter of R U OK? Day. Held on September 14 it acts as a vital reminder. To find out more about the campaign, be sure to read this week’s feature story on page 10.

AMAZING GRACE First job? Washing dishes at the Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London. My parents due to currency regulations in Sri Lanka at the time were only able to send money for my ballet lessons, so I had to find money to live and eat. What are you currently working on? I am retired but give two tai chi classes a week to residents at our retirement village.
Do you have a nickname? With the Royal Ballet it was Rene, and later when I worked at the Lido in Paris it was ‘mother’ as I was in charge of the show and the Bluebell Girls. First car? Gladys, a second-hand bomb. I only learnt to drive on my arrival in Australia and by then I was in my forties. Whilst living in Europe a car was not necessary.
BIO Born in Sri Lanka, Michael Ingleton began dancing at his mother’s school. He joined the Royal Ballet School in London in 1962 and was later accepted into the Royal Ballet Company. In 1971 he went to Paris, to join the Lido Cabaret, where he became principal dancer and was in charge of the 45 Bluebell Girls. He came to Australia with his partner in 1981 and they now live at Hibiscus Buderim Meadows retirement village.
Where do you take visitors? Up to glorious Maleny where the views are sublime and the weather always perfect. Also Mooloolaba Beach, which always is alive and vibrant. One thing you’d change about the Coast? A better and more frequent bus service.
Your family includes… My partner and his family in Sweden, and my sister and her family in Melbourne.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Noosa for its beaches and its laid-back atmosphere.
Best day in your life? The day I met my partner, 40 years ago in Paris. Can you nominate a in your life that turned out to be a turning point? The day way back in 1960 when my father allowed me to make plans to leave Sri Lanka to go to London to further my classical ballet career. Your greatest regret? Not having being able to dance on the Bolshoi stage in Moscow. But this year we have been able to glean tickets for the Kirov Theatre in St Petersburg.
Favourite book? Colin de Silva’s chronicles on the ancient history of Sri Lanka.
What achievement are you most proud of? Being in charge of the Lido show and the 45 Bluebell Girls – I was the first male in charge of the girls who worked for Miss Bluebell in Paris, Las Vegas and Spain.
What are you reading now? Alex von Tunzelmann’s Indian Summer: the secret history of the end of an empire.
You are happiest when? Sipping wine with my family and friends and talking about the days gone by.
Favourite song? I Have a Love from West Side Story.
What frustrates you the most? Bigots. There are so many narrow-minded people around. How do you deal with your frustrations? Having a good argument. And listening to loud classical music.
Best advice you’ve been given? Be yourself. How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? We first came up here on holiday in 1995 and fell in love with the area, which reminded us of Sweden in summer and Sri Lanka all year round. The following year we came back again and bought acreage in Diddillibah where we had a Queenslander built. Why do you live here? The climate and the lifestyle.
Advice to your 18-year-old self? Follow your dreams – and do not listen to anybody else. Tea or coffee? Tea with plenty of sugar, and a dash of milk when I am in Australia. In Europe it is coffee. NRL or AFL? Oh my god no!

Depression and anxiety can be the result of many life factors. Research shows one of these can be diet. Evidence indicates that people who eat healthy tend to have better mental health. You are what you eat.

R U OK? With Australia’s suicide rate skyrocketing, it’s always the right time to ask someone who seems to be struggling if they are OK. Those three words spoken with genuine care may save a life. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
n 2015 suicide was the leading cause of death for Australian children aged from five to 17. It was also the leading cause of death among people aged from 15 to 44 years, with the figures the highest they have been in a decade. The statistics hit you in the face, hard. In that year 3027 Australians died from intentional self-harm – one person every three hours or eight people a day, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics Causes of Death 2015 report. These aren’t just numbers, these are people. Mothers, fathers; someone’s daughter, someone’s son; and alarmingly the figures are continuing to grow. Suicide has become a grim global epidemic. According to the World Health Organisation, about 800,000 people around the world end their lives each year – that’s one person every 40 seconds. In response, health professionals, community groups and survivors are banding together to break through communication barriers and improve the statistics. Thankfully, they have made some progress. In March this year, data from Lifeline revealed that 80 per cent of Australians supported the development of a National Suicide Prevention Plan. In the few days following the release of these statistics, the COAG Health Council unveiled its first plan. In May, the Federal Government earmarked $47 million in funding for frontline suicide prevention services. While it’s a step in the right direction, the work simply can’t stop here. R U OK? – one of the groups to receive a portion of the government funding – is gearing up to bring the issue to the forefront of the national agenda. The ninth annual R U OK? Day will be
10 My Weekly Preview | September 8, 2017
held on September 14. Launched in 2009 by Gavin Larkin, the organisation is a suicide prevention charity that aims to start life-changing conversations. It was born from Larkin’s own experience with mental illness – his father Barry committed suicide in 1995. Larkin was a champion of the fact that conversation could change a life right up until he lost his battle with cancer in 2011. Today, the organisation’s CEO Brendan Maher says R U OK? is now more than a one-day movement.
R U OK? Day and it told us about one in three Australians don’t feel comfortable reaching out and talking to someone. “Supporting someone they are worried about is held hostage by stigma, fear (of saying the wrong thing). It’s about not knowing where to start and not being comfortable enough to get beside someone and ask that question. We are addressing that head on. [The campaign] has grown significantly… 80 per cent of the Australian public are now aware of the campaign.” “We are about influencing cultural
“I think it can never be underestimated how important it is to ask are you OK? Everyone needs to know someone cares. It can make a huge difference”
“I fell into that. I got immersed into it. It had a negative impact on my relationships, my friendships and self-esteem.” Bastoni has been sober for almost nine years. His three children – aged 10, 8 and 5 – have never seen him drunk. He admits that staying clean requires work and support. It has also given him the drive to jump on board the R U OK? bus as an ambassador. “My whole reason, my motivation for getting on board, was that I had personal experience,’’ Bastoni says. “The last few years of my addiction, I didn’t see any point living. I seriously did contemplate taking my own life. And I’m grateful that I didn’t do it. If I had, I would have been killing the wrong bloke. “In my process of recovery I learnt who I am and managed to let go of the old Steve. I’m not a bad bloke.” Bastoni believes that early prevention is key in preventing tragic circumstances and

STARTING THE CONVERSATION “We’re making it about a conversation people should have 365 days a year.’’ Speaking from Melbourne, Maher tells My Weekly Preview he has spent seven weeks on the road as part of the group’s first Conversation Convoy. Using four vehicles that represent R U OK’s? four support steps – listen, encourage, action and check in – the team has travelled from remote communities to cities meeting and speaking with thousands of people. Maher says the aim is to encourage friends and family to talk to those they may be concerned about. “We did some research in the lead-up to
behaviour. It’s about meaningful change, giving people the capability to reach out and ask. People want to tell you their stories. “R U OK is a tiny part of trying to strengthen the connections of relationships.” Australian actor Steve Bastoni, best known for his roles in Wentworth, Police Rescue and Neighbours, knows only too well the benefits of strong relationships. He credits his wife with being his saviour after substance and alcohol abuse led to depression. “I was in my twenties when my career in film and television took off… it was really accessible (drugs and alcohol),’’ Bastoni says.
Staying connected and having meaningful conversations is something we can all do. The team at R U OK? say you don’t need to be an expert – just a great friend and a good listener. Follow these four easy steps to start the conversation, you could make a difference. 1. Ask are you OK? 2. Listen 3. Encourage action 4. Check in – be sure to follow up.

says mental health and the wellbeing of others should be on our radar daily. Breaking down the stigma associated with mental health is also on his agenda. What goes on ‘between our ears’ should not be a source of shame, but a shared experience. “Sometimes people don’t feel comfortable reaching out, but it’s up to us to reach out. To see those changes in people and ask ‘R U OK?’. “I’ve played the tough guy. I’ve been conditioned to think that the Aussie bloke keeps up the tough guy [act]. “Australian blokes are cottoning on that it’s not working. We’re not expressing those emotions in a healthy way. It’s about encouraging blokes to say ‘I’m not doing well, I could do with a hand’.” With more than 300 million people suffering from depression around the globe, the question remains as to why stigma still surrounds mental health. Doctor Rhiannon Bell from Mooloolaba’s Psychology Cafe says part of the issue is that society struggles with the concept of
SIGNS TO LOOK OUT FOR Seek help if you, or someone you know, is showing any of the following symptoms of depression. • Withdrawal from activities and people • Change in personality • Irritability and moodiness • Drinking or substance abuse • Increased or decreased appetite • Change in typical patterns – such as sleep • Negative self-talk.

Steve Bastoni depression being an illness. Depression and anxiety does not discriminate – it can target anyone at any time. Dr Bell says it’s important to ask the tough question – are you OK? “What they are hearing is I see you, I value you and I care. I often ask clients who have been through loss about how people are responding. People just ignore the pain because of awkwardness.” Encouraging communication from a young age is also a vital tool in combatting depression and suicide, Dr Bell says. “It’s about becoming more comfortable with emotions and starting with young kids. It’s having the family culture of talking about feelings. We need to start educating kids young. Don’t shy away from these topics.” Talented Sunshine Coast teen musician Mason Hope agrees we’re never too young to learn about the importance of emotion and communication. He knows only too well the effects of depression and anxiety and aims to breakdown the stigma and address the health issue head on. The 18-year-old, who has become one of the region’s most talked about artists after

winning the 2016 Voice of Urban Country Music Festival and 2016 Gympie Muster Talent Search, is a national ambassador for youth mental health organisation Headspace, and an advocate for other young people struggling with the illness. “I was a pretty sad kid who had been bullied at school and had suffered parental abandonment. “I was always teased for being raised by my Nan and was taunted by comments like ‘your dad hates you’. “My father left when I was around six months old. I was with mum for a little while but ended up with Nan early on in life. I had a lot of panic attacks back in the day. I had a hard younger life but it made me strong for life,’’ he tells My Weekly Preview. Today, Hope is a well-spoken, polite and down-to-earth teenager – someone any parent, or grandparent, would be proud to call their own. He is studying at TAFE, recording his first record, has performed alongside the likes of country music star Travis Collins and has his sights set firmly on Nashville fame. The teen credits his role with Headspace as his saviour. He joined the organisation’s
committee when he was 12 years old and hasn’t looked back. Headspace Maroochydore has provided more than 11,700 occasions of care for young people. “It pushed me forward. I evolved and became a stronger, confident person. There are some brilliant counsellors, brilliant people, programs for younger people. Anyone from the ages of 12 to 25 can walk in and automatically are helped by a counsellor.’’ Hope says Headspace and events like R U OK? Day have helped him to learn about his strengths as a survivor. Through his music, he hopes to inspire people not to give up on their dreams and to not let past experiences dictate the future. “I think it can never be underestimated how important it is to ask are you OK? “Everyone needs to know someone cares. It can make a huge difference. “I would like to throw out a challenge to young people: connect with someone you normally wouldn’t because you think they are too shy, quiet, sad, different and have a chat. “With R U OK? Day, the whole concept of asking are they OK can change their life. It can mean a 100 per cent to someone who is going through anxiety, bullied, depression.”

PINK MAKES DAUGHTER PROUD Mothers all around the globe cheered on pop sensation Pink when she addressed social injustice and body issues at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. Pink spoke of her daughter’s concerns with feeling ugly: “And I said to her, ‘Do you see me growing my hair?’ She said, ‘No, Mama.’ I said, ‘Do you see me changing my body?’ ‘No, Mama.’ ‘Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?’ ‘Yes, Mama.’ OK!

With Powderfinger’s Jon Coghill as the narrator, the Soundtrail puts the hipster into the heritage of one of the Sunshine Coast’s oldest towns. Start the tour at Nambour Library and use the free council wifi to download the Soundtrails app to your tablet or smartphone. Don’t forget your headphones.

COMMUNITY INVITED TO CELEBRATE GIVING WITH THE BUDERIM FOUNDATION Celebrate community spirit and head to Buderim for the Foundation’s Community Grants Celebration. Buderim Foundation Grants committee chair Lisa Edward says: “This year we are celebrating not only the $65,000 in community grants we are awarding, but the more than $400,000 we have been able to gift to Buderim and 4556 community organisations in the 10 years since our grants program commenced.” The event is on September 9 from 2pm on the lawn between the Memorial Hall and the Craft Cottage.
A new report shows that up to 3.6 million Australians are not doing any exercise at all and over half say they mostly sit on a typical work day. According to the Heart Foundation’s National Physical Activity Plan, almost one in five parents reported that their child was inactive, and a third blamed a lack of interest and a preference for electronic games. In a bid to combat the issue, the Heart Foundation has launched MyMarathon to raise money for vital research. The event will take place in October and anyone can walk, jog or run to help the cause and improve their own health. Participants must complete 42.2 kilometres throughout the month. Visit heartfoundation.org.au.
A NIGHT UNDER THE STARS To celebrate Australian Reading Hour, Sunshine Coast Libraries, in partnership with The Smith Family, invite families to attend Stories under the Stars at Maroochydore Library from 6-7pm on September 14. Councillor Jenny McKay says families are invited to bring a blanket and torch to a free storytime session under the Cottonwood tree outside Maroochydore Library. “Australians say reading is their number one enjoyable leisure activity and research shows that reading reduces stress by 68 per cent,’’ she says.

ART PRIZE PUTS FIFO LIFESTYLE IN THE SPOTLIGHT The $25,000 prize winner of the 2017 Sunshine Coast Art Prize is a thought-provoking textile piece that draws attention to Australia’s fly in, fly out culture. Artist Raquel Ormella’s piece Worker’s Blues #1 was selected from 461 entries. Ormella has a national reputation as a socialpolitical commentator. Worker’s Blues #1 was inspired by the idea of workers being temporarily imported into remote locations and exported from their families. The Sunshine Coast’s Jennifer Herd won the highly commended award for her work entitled Nine Queensland Shields.
THE WHARF IS IN LINE FOR A $1.5 MILLION UPGRADE A new restaurant and bar to be launched in time for Christmas will ramp up the revitalisation of The Wharf Mooloolaba precinct. Named The Dock, the new 350-seat restaurant and bar will specialise in smoked meats, charcoal grill and quality beer. Co-owner Dirk Long says work is well underway on the $1.5 million renovation. “It was previously designed to look like a submarine so all of that has come out and already you can tell it’s going to look fantastic with the high ceilings and natural light.” It’s hoped The Dock will open in December.
$50,000 GONSKI FUNDING FOR COAST SCHOOLS School students are set to benefit from a boost in education funding, which was announced last week. Every Sunshine Coast school student will receive around $2150 in additional Commonwealth funding over the next decade under the Federal Government’s student-centred Gonski funding plan. In the next 10 years, the Coast’s government and independent schools will receive up to $500 million in additional funding. By 2027 the total Commonwealth funding to local schools is expected to total nearly $2 billion.
Sunshine Coast based charity the Compass Institute has received a significant funding boost following a recent golf day at Twin Waters. In addition to the estimated $20,000 raised on the day, a $30,000 cheque was presented by the event’s major sponsor, Cricks Sunshine Coast. Compass Institute CEO David Dangerfield said he was delighted with the success of the day, which continues to raise important funds and awareness of his charity’s work.
MED SCHOOL GETS GO AHEAD After months of uncertainty, the Federal Government has announced that the Sunshine Coast University Hospital will become a tertiary teaching institute, thanks to the allocation of an additional 15 medical school places. The news follows Sunshine Coast Council’s #OperationMedSchool campaign, which urged the government to allocate the additional numbers. Mayor Mark Jamieson welcomed the news. “Our region was promised a tertiary teaching hospital. Between council and the community, we ensured the Federal Government was made aware we deserved nothing less and would accept nothing less.”

MILAN SOMERVILLE: “DANCING IS WHAT I’M MEANT TO DO” Mooloolaba longboarder Milan Somerville shot to international fame recently when US music producer and DJ Skrillex spotted him on YouTube and cast him in his latest video. MWP met with the dude with the moves and found out where his true passion lies. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
IMAGES: MORGAN EARNEY
he hairy longboarder stands before a mountainous backdrop at sunset, somewhere in the Californian desert. He surveys the road ahead, puts his earbuds in and takes off, cruising along as he busts some awesome dance moves to a breezy electronic dance track. The song is Would You Ever by US music producer Skrillex with songwriter and vocalist Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd. Since its release on July 26, the video has clocked up more than 12 million views on YouTube, turning Mooloolaba’s Milan Somerville into an overnight sensation. Skrillex and Poo Bear appear briefly at the end of the clip, but the spotlight is squarely on Somerville, with his sheer exuberance and unique dance moves. The joyful and carefree energy he exudes in the video is infectious and has undoubtedly contributed to the track’s success. When Skrillex saw Somerville’s YouTube channel, where he goes by the name Sepakuma – The Hairy Longboarder, he immediately wanted to use him in a video. Somerville was flown to the US on June 25, put up in the gleaming towers of the Westin Bonaventure in downtown LA, and did around eight hours filming over five days near the Joshua Tree National Park. “I had a blast, it was heaps of fun,” he says. “I only got to meet him briefly; he was really nice. He gave some direction, though I was given a lot of freedom in what I wanted to do.” Somerville returned to Australia on July 5 and in the space of two months, has gone from a relatively unknown cleaner and trolley collector at Coles at Sunshine Plaza, to somewhat of a local celebrity who’s now on the hunt for a manager. “Yesterday I was going to work and some lady was like, you’re that longboarder guy, can I get a photo with you?” he laughs. “I was like, sure, why not? A lot of the time people will say they saw my videos or saw me on the news and they say I love what you’re doing mate,
keep doing it, keep it up. I’m like, thank you so much. I get a really positive response. It makes me feel really good.” Somerville’s girlfriend Manda loves all the attention her man is getting and when they meet people, she’s the first to ask them if they’ve seen his videos. Manda is the reason Somerville moved to the Sunshine Coast a year ago. Born in South Australia, he grew up moving between Queensland and New South Wales almost on a yearly basis with his free-spirited mum Lili and four older brothers, completing high school on the Gold Coast. “Mum just liked to move a lot,” he says. “As a kid I wasn’t the biggest fan because you get to the school, make friends and
have to go to another school. It’s not the easiest but as an adult now, it certainly makes you adaptable. You’re able to associate with lots of different people. “People at school thought I was a bit crazy, but not in a bad way. I was the kind of kid who would climb onto roofs or just do random stuff. My mum tells me I was one of those kids who was super chilled and did what I was told. Mum was very lenient, she didn’t have too many rules. She’s the best mum ever – I love her so much.” Emotionally open and genuine, Somerville talks with equal affection about Manda, who works at a local dental clinic. “One of the best days of my life was when I met my girlfriend because she’s the woman I
love,” he says. “I met her at a small festival in April last year. I had been dancing for a while and I was just chilling out behind the DJ decks and she just popped up and was dressed as a green fairy and had all this vibrant energy and I was like, oh my god, look at this beautiful woman. We went to the dancefloor and had a dance, hugged each other and kissed and I thought, oh my god, this is it. We’ve been in love ever since. We just chill out together, watch movies, go for walks, go to waterfalls.” The couple has discussed marriage and Manda likes to point out rings she likes, but for now, they’re happy with the way things are. Somerville is enjoying his newfound fame and is planning to make a new video for his sponsor, Loaded Boards. He’s also gearing up for his 25th birthday on September 17, which he’ll be celebrating doing what he loves most – dancing at a bush doof. “I was at a festival one New Year’s Eve and I danced so much, I danced for 20 hours within the first 36 hours of being there. That was the point where I came to the realisation that dancing was what I was meant to do with my life. Dancing is where my true passion is and I’ve been trying to pursue that ever since.”

DESERT + DESSERT A gourmet food and wine journey on the famous Indian Pacific combines dazzling views with gastronomic delights, writes Selina Day, AAP.
Your money questions answered
with Michael Rowland
Retirement is just around the corner for us. We think we are on track but are unsure as to how much we will need in our retirement years. Can you shed any light on what is considered a reasonable retirement income? (A&S 4558) Every quarter, the Association of Superannuation Funds Australia (ASFA) release the ‘Retirement Standard’. This is information on the annual budget needed by Australians to fund a modest or comfortable standard of living. As an example, the modest retirement lifestyle would be considered a little better than the age pension but still only able to afford basic activities. The comfortable retirement lifestyle would provide for a better standard of living. They suggest that for a couple aged 65, a modest lifestyle would need an income of $34,911 p.a. and for a comfortable lifestyle an income of $60,063 p.a. would be required. Detailed breakdowns of what makes up these ﬁgures are provided on their website.* However, everyone is different so it is important to keep track of your own spending habits and try to identify how much you are likely to need when you fully retire. We normally ﬁnd that you are much more active in the ﬁrst years of retirement and you may ﬁnd that spending is increased a little with larger purchases such as travel or a new car. Being prepared and ensuring that you are making the most effective use of your cash ﬂow, from and investment point of view, in the lead up to retirement is paramount to living comfortably.
F My partner and I are considering starting a family and I intend to return to work when the child goes to school. I’d like to know if there anything I should be considering to ensure that my superannuation remains in good shape through those years and beyond? (Ms.K 4575) Through our working lives we receive contributions to superannuation from employers via Super Guarantee Contributions (SGC), currently at 9.5%. But taking time out of the workforce affects your superannuation - when you stop work the contributions stop as well. As you are planning to start a family you should also carry your planning across to your super and consider making higher contributions now. Placing funds into super in the lead up to taking time off will potentially save tax now, but more importantly, will boost your super balance. Compounding returns on the higher balance will mean that you won’t need to contribute as much in later years to play catch up for lost time. So investing further into super now to offset the loss of SGC while you take time of work, is a strategy that can work very well. The downside of course is that super is a very long term investment and you won’t have access to your funds until a condition of release is met, but if this is not a concern for you, investment into the tax effective vehicle of super is very hard to beat.

reedom awaits as we chug out of Adelaide, with thousands of kilometres ahead on one of the world’s great rail journeys. It’s enough to get any traveller tingling. Add with the lure of premium wine and food on the Indian Pacific train, I’m excited. This journey is all about the land. For days, we’re a moving speck in a great expanse. We take in Australia’s vastness through our windows. For hours upon hypnotic hours, deep-green trees and rich, red earth pass by, the landscape eventually morphing into the low, dusty scrub of the Nullarbor Plain. There are unexpected sights, too, like small and random clusters of cows, solar panels and windmills.
produce as it is about the freedom that comes with remote, long-haul travel. The Indian Pacific is operated by Adelaide-based Great Southern Rail, which aims to showcase some of South Australia’s best producers, through meals, off-train excursions and masterclasses. West-bound, the train leaves Adelaide on Thursdays, but first we enjoy a lazy afternoon in the picturesque Adelaide Hills. First up, there’s wine tasting at the rustic cellar door of the five-star Mt Lofty Ranges vineyard at sleepy Lenswood. Vigneron Garry Sweeney pairs each variety with foods such as tataki kangaroo with rhubarb and macadamia, and Kingfish sashimi with ponzu and creme fraiche.
“This voyage is as much about enjoying the produce as it is about the freedom that comes with remote, long-haul travel”
We gasp in awe at spectacular sunrises and sunsets that only the desert could provide. It’s not a fast ride – we average around 85 kilometres per hour – so we have plenty of time to take in the details missed when flying up high in a plane. Typically the trip traverses the country from Sydney to Perth and vice versa, a 4,325-kilometre journey taking 65 hours. But we’re crossing from Adelaide to Perth – ‘only’ 2669 kilometres – on a themed journey aboard the Gourmet Food and Wine Train. This voyage is as much about enjoying the
As darkness falls, we stop at the dairy farm that supplies milk to artisan cheesemaker Kris Lloyd of Woodside Cheese Wrights. We sit among hay bales in the shed, under blankets and with bonfires crackling outside, as Kris allows keen guests to milk her farmer’s prized dairy cow, Tulip, before demonstrating how this still-warm milk is made into cheese. The winter chill biting, we pile back into the coach to be taken to The Lane Vineyard restaurant for our first meal of the journey. After dinner, we finally climb aboard

WE’VE GOT YOUR WINDOWS COVERED
IF YOU GO:
what’s to be our home for the next couple of days. We acquaint ourselves with our cosy cabins before the train heads off about 10pm into the dark yonder. On the Indian Pacific, passengers enjoy three meals a day and those who have chosen the Gourmet Food and Wine Train package enjoy three masterclasses over the two days. We learn how to make chocolate with Sarina Waterman and Alison Peck from Chocolate at No.5, coming away with our own hand-crafted ganache truffles, and we get an understanding of bush spices from indigenous chef Mark Olive, sampling smoked emu and crocodile coated in native ingredients, including lemon myrtle and wattle seed. There’s also instruction in how to blend gin, from master maker Sacha La Forgia, whose Adelaide Hills Distillery was recently named by the American Distilling Institute as home to the world’s best gin. The first opportunity since Adelaide to alight from the train is the SA outpost of Cook, home to just four people. It’s a ghost town since the railways were privatised in 1997. Cook is now a refuelling and watering stop for the Indian Pacific and is also where the train’s drivers change over. On Friday evening, we reach the equallyremote Rawlinna. Industry here is a onemillion-hectare sheep station and a lime mine. In summer, dinner is served under the
GETTING THERE The Indian Pacific departs Sydney, Adelaide and Perth weekly, all year round. Along the way, there are off train excursions in places including Broken Hill, Adelaide and Kalgoorlie. STAYING ON THE TRAIN Choose Platinum, Gold Twin or Gold Single class. Unless you travel Platinum class, cabin space is at a premium. Pack light and think small. PLAYING ON THE TRAIN You’re in the middle of nowhere. There’s no internet in parts. Take advantage of this for a digital detox. Talk to your travelling companions, look out the window and relax. And remember it can be cold in the desert. Take a jacket and beanie.

But now, in midwinter, bonfires are lit and passengers treated to a concert before enjoying dinner on the warm train. Then it’s off again, for another night and day and the dreamy vista of the mighty Nullarbor before we pull up in Perth. * The writer travelled as a guest of Great Southern Rail and stayed at the Pan Pacific hotel in Perth.

NEW ALLIANCE FORMS TO BOOST CALOUNDRA Caloundra businesses are on the money when it comes to the future, writes Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ith the bulk of the region‘s expected population increase for the next 20 years set to be concentrated around Caloundra, business owners are joining forces to ensure they are well prepared to capitalise on the unprecedented opportunity for growth. The newly-formed Caloundra Business Alliance will launch on September 12, offering business owners a chance to galvanise marketing and promotion efforts and reach out to the community through unique events designed to attract people from far and wide. Alliance secretary Selina Smith says while the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce focuses on business-to-business networking, the alliance will focus on connecting businesses with the community. Far from going it alone, the not-for-profit alliance has the backing of the Sunshine Coast Council and Downtown Caloundra. Smith, who has owned Cosie Swimwear in Bulcock Street for 20 years, says the Caloundra CBD has undergone some major transformations of late, with the council’s revitalisation works continuing to breathe
new life into the precinct. “It’s looking fantastic and with Aura and other projects on the go, there is a lot going on. These are exciting times for Caloundra and there is huge potential for everyone to benefit,” she says. “We need to lift our profile and give business owners a voice.” Alliance president Dan Ross, who owns the Grounded Cafe, says the people who know the most about Caloundra are the business owners who work there day in, day out. “We just want to help promote and improve Caloundra and help each other out

as well,” he says. “At the moment we are planning events and promotions in association with Downtown Caloundra for 2017, but we’ve got some big ideas for the future as well.” The alliance logo, which features seven waves to signify the seven beaches in the area, will be unveiled along with plans for the future at the launch night. Caloundra business owners and stakeholders are invited along to the free information night to learn more about how the alliance will interact with other agencies, how they can benefit members, and get a glimpse of some of the events already in the pipeline. Among them is a pirate treasure hunt for the September school holidays, buskers throughout the CBD to coincide with the Caloundra Music Festival, and bringing back a traditional Christmas street parade. The Caloundra Business Alliance launch is on at The Events Centre, Caloundra on September 12 from 5.30pm to 7pm.
For more information, contact Selina on 5492 8802 or Dan on 0474 171 586.
CREATIVE KIDS’ GREAT WIN A small Sunshine Coast school is making a mark on the national arts and education scene. Students from Caloundra’s Our Lady of the Rosary School are set to compete at national level in the Wakakirri Story Dance competition after securing the regional Story of the Year title. A total of 65 students competed in the seven-minute theatrical dance and creative performance inspired by the book The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore. National judging will take place in October. Meanwhile, a group of OLR students are set to battle against some of Queensland’s greatest primary school minds after winning the regional Tournament of the Minds final. The group will compete at state level at Griffith University on September 10.

OUR 50TH YEAR
SERIOUS CRIME SHATTERS COAST’S INNOCENCE When a bomb killed Maroochydore toddler Merilyn Gartner in 1974, it was a crime that introduced the Sunshine Coast to the reality that “it could happen here”, reports Dot Whittington.
Detective-Sergeant Kev Dorries, right, inspects the damaged house in Sixth Avenue
t about 1pm on Wednesday, August 7, 1974, Heinz Gartner noticed an open window at his unoccupied house at 60 Sixth Avenue, Maroochydore and went to check. His daughters Merilyn, 3, and Lisa, 2, were with him. While their father was looking around, the girls ran off to explore. Little Merilyn opened a cupboard, detonating a nail bomb that killed her instantly. Her sister was seriously injured and the “high order” blast shattered windows and floorboards. The cupboard had been booby-trapped and there was never any doubt it had been meant for Detective-Sergeant Kev Dorries. Dorries, 42, was head of the CIB and after five years in Nambour, was far from popular. “The climate favours the cultivation of cannabis and the holiday-like conditions made the area a favourite spot for drugusers,” Dorries said in an interview. “I am not as tough a policeman as I have been made out to be but one who operates without fear.”
26 My Weekly Preview | September 8, 2017
Nevertheless, there were always stories in those pre-Fitzgerald days about his methods in his push to clean up drug offenders. Two days before the blast, the Nambour Criminal Investigation branch had received an anonymous call that heroin was hidden at the property and to “tell Dorries to look in the cupboard”. It was thought the bomb had been planted on the Sunday night but when Dorries went to investigate on Monday, the house was locked and he left. The bomb was home-made using an empty gallon paint tin and sticks of gelignite together with 2-inch fibro roofing screws and nails. It was reported, that it was based on the Claymore anti-personnel mine, a weapon seen by thousands of Australian soldiers in Vietnam. This, and the fact that many young Australians had been introduced to drugs while serving in Vietnam, was one of a dozen theories detectives considered. A reward of $20,000 was offered on August 15, for information leading to the arrest of the
person responsible and there would be a free pardon for any accomplice. A team of detectives arrived from the Brisbane CIB and the investigation was swift and tough. Soon, Peter Vivian Wardrop, 27, a salesman from Oxley in Brisbane, confirmed as part of the local drug scene, and Gary Thomas Taylor, 24, of Zillmere, both known to police, were arrested. Taylor was found dead in his cell on December 13, while Wardrop pleaded not guilty and went to trial on April 28, 1975. The court was told that Wardrop was obsessed by his hatred for Dorries who was costing him thousands in cannabis sales. Dorries told the court that in the previous May, he had found a farm near Maroochydore with 500 cannabis plants, a crop worth about $100,000 and had apprehended Wardrop. After 39 days, and statements from 76 Crown witnesses, the jury found Wardrop guilty and he was sentenced to life imprisonment with hard labour. He appealed a year later but was again convicted. Dorries, meanwhile, had been transferred to Brisbane. Wardrop was back in the news a decade later in January 1984, while incarcerated at Townsville’s Stuart Jail. He had sent an anonymous letter to Premier Sir Joh BjelkePetersen saying that wild pigs would be infected with foot and mouth disease, spreading to cattle and sheep, unless prison reforms were implemented within 12 weeks. In 1989, State Cabinet released Wardrop and deported him to his native New Zealand, under threat of imprisonment if he returned. The last heard was in May 2004, when, at 57, Wardrop was jailed for three years for growing cannabis at Hawke’s Bay, where he had been living since his release.
THIS MONTH IN HISTORY The residential hub of Alexandra Headland opened in September 1948, when Nambour businessman AJ ‘Alf’ Frost subdivided his large parcel of land into 34 allotments. It was bounded by the Buderim/Mooloolaba Road on the south, Mary Street on the east and the Presbyterian Estate on the west. Frost had a clothing factory he had moved from Brisbane to a two-storey fibro building at the corner of Ann and Lowe streets in Nambour.

• Roy Henzell Snr, who opened Caloundra’s first real estate agency in 1935, purchased “1000 acres for £1000” of what appeared to be impenetrable ti-tree swamp at Golden Beach in 1946. The land had been bestowed on William Landsborough for his exploration efforts. It is now called Pelican Waters. The original 1881 documents of the Deed of Grant for Conditional Purchase for 2372 acres are kept in a safe. The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast was celebrated on August 1, 2017. To celebrate the momentous occasion, My Weekly Preview will each week take a look into our region’s past. If you have any historical photos or stories email email@example.com.

Naomi’s natural beauty
ROLL WITH THE TIMES
At 48, Naomi Watts looks as gorgeous as ever and says she has avoided Botox as she wants her face to express the emotions of the characters she plays. She’s low-maintenance when it comes to beauty and loves going makeup-free when she’s not on set, but she has a few products she can’t without: n t live withou
Rolling tiny needles across your face may not sound like a fun way to pass the time, but take it from us: it works a treat. Microneedle dermal rollers improve the penetration of your skincare products and stimulate collagen. By rolling the device gently across your skin once or twice a week, you’ll create a more vibrant, glowing complexion, even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We like this one from Sunshine Coast company Mukti Organics, $59.95 from Kunara Organic Marketplace or muktiorganics.com.

LIFE HACKS GONE MAD
FAST TRACKING OUR FUTURE
Sami Muirhead is not a fan of life hacks, especially when they involve boiling your undies in a hotel kettle.
Darrell Edwards says our governments need to be working together now to ensure our transport infrastructure can cope with our population growth.
id you see the news that some whackos are boiling their undies or knickers in hotel kettles? Yes. It is part of a so-called genius ‘life hack’ of busy people who travel so much they do not have time to wash their undergarments in the washing machine, or apparently in the shower, or sink, like the rest of us normal people. I am sorry I have ruined the sacred break of having a restorative cup of tea next time you are in a hotel. I always wipe the mugs or glasses in hotel rooms, as I think about all the germs on them, but I have never once thought, ‘Oh yeah, the kettle will be raging with well, someone’s junk funk’. Oh gosh, it is too much even writing it. My husband said he does not understand the fuss as the undies are in boiling water, which would in theory sterilise everything. This little cynical duck is not buying that theory. However the actual experts (sorry, babe) say it is incredibly irresponsible to boil up your Bonds in such a small container. Can we also talk about ‘life hacks’ please? I know they are all the rage and everyone loves them. But I do not. They just show me how inadequate my skill set is and how rubbish I am at doing the basics, like cooking and keeping my home clean. You know, people never post life hacks for just bludging or for watching every season ever made of Game Of Thrones. They are ridiculous suggestions for things such as better storage methods for
your freshly grown and organic thyme. They are a little bit passive aggressive and a way of bragging that the smarmy hacker has a better and more organised life than you. But back to the gross undies washing story. The thing that shocks me even more about this kettle kerfuffle is the fact that it is even a common practice in the first place. I worked many moons ago in a Canadian ski field hotel and people certainly got up to all sorts of behaviour behind closed doors. Let’s just say CSI Crime Squad would have a field day with those torches that shine blue light onto otherwise invisible substances. The bedspreads in hotel rooms freak me out a little, as I always think about what happens on them. I have an aunt who is so terrified of germs she carries a handkerchief and uses it to open public toilet doors and seats. We all have our little quirks when it comes to germs I suppose. I have had this crazy hotel fantasy for about seven years. Are you ready to hear it? I leave my beautiful children and husband at home and I go to a hotel and get in my pyjamas and I binge eat chocolate and drink wine and sleep and watch hour upon hour of trash TV. Oh. Keep speaking dirty to me, girlfriend! My family think I am joking every time they ask what I would like for a present at birthday or Christmas time when I reply to go to a hotel room by myself to just sleep. If it ever eventuates I will make sure I pack my own damn kettle.

t is critical that transport infrastructure, including a mass transit rail system, is introduced quickly to effectively link the Sunshine Coast region’s coastal communities. The State Government’s ShapingSEQ strategic plan, which seeks to set a blueprint for development over the next half century, says the proposed passenger transport corridor, between Maroochydore and Caloundra, will provide a cohesive corridor of high quality, distinctive urban environments that are typically ‘Sunshine Coast’ in character. The duplication of the North Coast rail is an urgent priority, despite being listed as only number 12 on the state transport priority list. These key transport projects must, of course, take their place in the line for government funding. But funds could be provided for projects such as these under the ‘City Deals’ program, where local, state and federal money is invested in an agreed set of projects, or through the $10 billion National Rail Fund established in the last Federal Budget. We need for the three levels of government on the Sunshine Coast to work together for the benefit of our region. The ShapingSEQ strategic plan predicts the population of the Sunshine Coast and Noosa will reach 558,000 by 2041 – and that we’ll need an extra 93,400 homes to accommodate the newcomers. It seems clear our region will be unable
to support a population increase of nearly 200,000 in the next 25 years unless we embrace significantly higher levels of housing density that support investment in transport infrastructure. About 34,000 new dwellings will be created through the development of integrated communities like Palmview and Caloundra South. Most of the increased population (58,500 dwellings) will need to be absorbed in areas where Sunshine Coast people already live – established urban localities. This will require a change in mindset about housing density to develop the ‘missing middle’ – greater density compatible with existing built forms. This covers housing types between detached houses and high-rise, and may include ‘Fonzie’ flats, ‘plexes’ (duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes etc), row/terrace housing and medium-rise apartments. I’m not necessarily advocating high rise, but we certainly need to consider low and medium rise and increase infill developments. I heard Professor Christopher Leinberger (a metropolitan land use strategist), speak recently about medium density, walkable communities. These deliver higher social equity, reduced emissions and justify urban transport infrastructure spending. We need to support integrated development for the future of Sunshine Coast.
Darrell Edwards is the chief executive officer for Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast.

ESTATE PLANNING: TAKE CHARGE NOW
state planning is an important process to undertake to ensure your wishes are implemented in an efficient and tax effective manner when you are no longer here. It should provide you with peace of mind that your assets are left to your intended beneficiaries. Firstly, you need to understand what assets you have control over in your will. Generally speaking, you should have control over assets that you own individually. However, jointly held assets generally don’t get dealt with by the will – they are left to the surviving person. Not many people are aware that your superannuation savings are not an asset that is automatically dealt with by your will. You are required to have a death benefit nomination lodged with your
superannuation provider. You can nominate your estate on this death benefit nomination – at which point the funds will be distributed in accordance with your will. Once you have identified which assets need to be reviewed as a part of your estate planning – you need to carefully consider who you leave those assets to. When structuring your estate planning affairs, be aware that there are potential tax implications for leaving assets to certain people. For example, no tax should be payable if you leave your superannuation savings to your dependant spouse. However, there may be tax payable if you leave your superannuation savings to your adult children who are no longer dependent. Personally held assets such as shares may have large unrealised capital gains associated with them, so serious consideration needs to be given to who you leave these assets to. Engaging with a solicitor, your accountant and your financial adviser in relation to your estate planning measures should ensure that your wishes are implemented as intended.

BIG PLANS FOR BIG PINEAPPLE Plans for the redevelopment of the iconic Big Pineapple are moving forward with developers last week lodging a whole-of-site master plan with Sunshine Coast Council. The plan proposes new opportunities across the large 169-hectare site, including a water park, hotel, produce hub and brewery. Development manager Jim Costello says the plan proposes to celebrate the site’s natural assets by incorporating ecoaccommodation, including glamping and eco-villas, along with camping facilities and an RV park. “These proposals were strongly supported during our consultation,’’ he says. Food and agricultural production will also be a highlight via a proposed Agribusiness Centre and Tourism Business
Centre, within a Food and Tourism Hub – a first for the region. “By facilitating a hub dedicated to expanding the existing local agriculture and food businesses, aligned with universities and the private sector, we can showcase the region’s world-class produce to a national and international market,’’ Costello says. “Leveraging the success of entertainment events at the site, the master plan also defines a dedicated events space with capacity to cater for an expanding entertainment program.” Other tourist attractions, such as zip lines and high ropes courses are also proposed. Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford has welcomed the news and hopes the development will be well supported.
Is Heartburn getting worse? Feeling nausea, bloating or acidic? What if it’s not indigestion? Is heartburn getting the best of you? Do you sometimes suffer with a chronic cough? Are you experiencing wheezing or a sore throat but it’s not the flu? Do you get chest pains that worry you? Is belching becoming a problem? If the symptoms of reflux or heartburn are left untreated, you may end up developing Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease, known as GORD. This is when the contents of the stomach, flow back up into the oesophagus, causing the painful burning sensation known as heartburn. Risk factors include side effects from certain medications, often the same medications used to treat the condition, smoking, high intake of irritant foods such as allergens, alcohol or coffee, obesity, stress, bacterial infection or hiatus hernia.

Research indicates medication is only recommended for 4-8 weeks as when used long term may cause muscle wastage and fat gain Reflux or GORD is most commonly caused by a condition known as SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or food intolerances. Insidious bacteria play a part in making heartburn difficult to treat, particularly when it becomes resistant to antibiotic therapy. Being overreactive to stress can worsen your symptoms also. If diet, bacteria, stress and your weight can contribute to heartburn, it’s essential to treat each of these factors simultaneously. Knowing exactly the kind of foods to avoid and correctly identifying any infections are the keys to a full recovery. Despite medications being readily available, there are damaging effects that can stem from long term use, such as increased susceptibility to other infections, risk of bone density loss, fractures and pneumonia, along with poor absorption of nutrients, blocking protein absorption, leaving you deficient and malnourished, often causing weight gain, rather than weight loss. Our team of specialised Naturopaths can help you find your unique triggers, so that your food intolerances and any infection is identified quickly, alongside addressing weight issues and managing stress, returning you to optimum long term wellness.

seafood and prawns and making pasta, because those tasks take the longest. Talk us through the process of creating a new dish. Creating a new dish is fun, but a complicated task. I start with my main produce. For example, if I want to use pork belly on the menu, then I start looking at what other components go well with it. After deciding on flavour and textures, you need to keep in mind how and where everything will be placed on the plate, because presentation is a very important aspect of cooking. As they say, you eat with your eyes before you eat with your mouth. What do you think Sunshine Coast diners are looking for? I think people here are looking for simple and healthy food with lots of local produce. Because people want to know what they are eating and where it is coming from. What would be your last meal on earth? Momos. Piece of equipment you can’t live without? Thermomix is my favourite piece of equipment. It is useful for so many tasks in the kitchen. Who is or was your inspiration? My mum is my main inspiration. But I also look up to chefs like Ferran Adria from Spain, whose belief was to stimulate the brain as well as mouth with food. Also, Virgilio Martínez Véliz from Peru, who uses natural ingredients in the best way possible.
ROCK ON AT MITCHELL CREEK
WHAT’S ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8
caption here, caption here, caption here
Mitchell Creek Rock ‘n’ Blues Fest is celebrating seven years of bringing live music to the Noosa hinterland this year with more than 150 acts including blues legends, Chain and The Four Day Riders, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary. Festival creator Jimmy Budgen says unlike the mainstream festivals, Mitchell Creek offers intimate weekend-long shows, placing emphasis on enjoying the bands. Budgen recalls chatting with Chain lead singer, Matt Taylor, who spoke of a time when bands relied on bookers to land gigs at local venues and musicians would stroll into the booker’s office, past a young office-boy perched outside. One day, Taylor stopped and spoke to the boy and agreed to take the young man under his wing. In return, the young boy would help promote Chain. That young boy was Michael Gudinski, who went on to found Mushroom Records. “I grew up listening to those songs and the industry was so fresh back then,” Budgen mused. “The modern music industry is international right now. I love how the Aussie music industry began with Taylor and Gudinski and I want to give the same chance to our new local artists.” Mitchell Creek offers a natural amphitheatre formed by the Mary Valley. The festival site has been one million years in the making, with the two stages nestled against the mountainous backdrop and guests are encouraged to camp for no additional cost. – Alexander Habilay September 15 to 18.

SMART STYLING The Block’s Darren Palmer’s advice to families wanting to create a beautiful home? Make it functional. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
DARREN PALMER’S TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR HOME THIS SPRING
need or haven’t worn and clean out all the cupboards you’ve been hoarding things in all year. Freshen up with living elements like plants or flowers. A big urn with palm leaves makes a huge statement, or for something more sedate get a fern, a succulent, an orchid or a bunch of flowers.
Open up your doors and windows to let the air and light through. That means sometimes changing out the heavier block out drapery for sheer curtains.
Florals are big and so is colour. Embrace both with equal vigour. Décor and soft furnishings can be a brilliant way to do that.
De-clutter: there’s nothing like a spring clean but it’s best to do that after you cull your wardrobe, donate what you don’t
ou could be forgiven for assuming Darren Palmer’s Bondi home must look like it came straight from the pages of a glossy magazine. Sure, the space is styled with a sense of sophistication, he is after all one of Australia’s most celebrated interior designers. Yet, Palmer is somewhat of a realist. After all, it’s difficult to escape reality when you share the space with an eight-yearold son, a husband and four dogs. “My home is like everyone else’s that doesn’t live in a photoshoot or gallery 24/7,’’ he tells My Weekly Preview. “It’s homely, comfortable and not fussy. “It’s a house for kids and pets and life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am constantly thinking about what to do to update my house as I always live in pre-renovated houses, the fixer uppers, and then usually renovate and sell them when they’re all shiny and new. “This house though might break that trend. I love it, it has a lot of potential and will take a bit of time and patience to improve, most likely happening in stages as life permits.” So, does The Block judge have any tips for amateur stylists who hope to balance home design and organisation with young ones? “No, I think anyone who is spending time with their children and making good memories and providing for them is doing plenty,’’ he says. “The perfect house is a photoshoot or an illusion so the best thing you can do is let go of the idea of perfection when it comes to a family home and just focus on what the family needs from the home to live a happy
and healthy life within it. “There will be plenty of time to have a perfect house when your kids leave home so for now, save your energy for good memories and make your house fit your needs through considering storage, materials used that you can easily clean, wash or replace and adding amenity to make the house as useable as possible for every member of the household, including pets.” From humble roots as a graphic designer, Palmer’s road to success has been more hard work than one paved with glamour. “It was always there ticking away inside of me,’’ he says of his passion for interior design. “I wanted to build houses but ended up doing graphic design and advertising for a few years until I realised I had taken a side step off my path. At 27 I did my first apartment, my own renovation, and had it published in Belle. “I worked with an amazing mentor, I built a body of work, I competed on a show by The Block’s executive producers called HomeMADE in 2009. “I’ve been able to parlay one opportunity into the next and it hasn’t ever been easy, it’s taken a huge amount of work and dedication, but it’s extremely rewarding.” Today he has a reputation as a fair judge on The Block, which is currently attracting around one million viewers each episode. He is also an ambassador for the GSK Hay Fever Help education campaign and has recently launched a range of homewares exclusive to Myer: “This is a major event in my career as it’s a brand I developed. I have loved working on each piece and I’m currently curating the next season.”

pring is here and it has made conditions perfect for gardening. With warm days and cool nights, it is hard to find a better time to get out in the garden. We are all however, ready for well-needed rain, and it is important to prepare your garden for the season to come. If your garden is starting to struggle from the lack of water there are a few things you can do to;
“More than anything, spring brings lots of new plant varieties and the start of new season lines. It begins a whole new planting for veggie gardens…” WATER DEEPLY, WATER WELL – Make sure you use your water wisely – ensure that water is penetrating deep into the ground, and not just the surface. An established garden generally needs a good water twice a week to sustain most plants. If you plant new plants, make sure to water these extra
to help establish them. MULCH – Ensure you have topped up your garden mulch, but don’t be tempted to pile the mulch up too high. Recommended levels are between 30mm and 50mm deep, anything more than this and it can be difficult for moisture to reach the roots. Use a high quality mulch such as Cypress or Ti Tree in the gardens and sugar cane or lucerne for more regularly used areas such as veggie gardens. PENETRAIDE – There are great products on the market to help your garden retain moisture. Searles Penetraide is designed to break down into existing soils and help these hold more moisture. Apply now before the hot weather and your garden will thank you. More than anything, spring brings lots of new plant varieties and the start of new season lines. It begins a whole new planting for veggie gardens, with spring and summer herbs and vegetables starting. Start planning for sweet corn, basil, cucumber, melons and pumpkins. Flowers will also start to change season with cosmos, dahlia, portulaca, sunflowers, salvia, torenia and verbena all becoming available.
BIDENS ‘CAMPFIRE’ This hardy new form of bidens is a great way to add a splash of colour. This improved variety has larger blooms than previous forms, with vibrant orange flowers making a lovely contrast to traditional yellow flowers. This variety can be grown in garden bed situations or containers and will flower constantly through autumn, winter and spring. With a little light pruning during summer, bidens are tough and hardy, and well-suited to a full sun position in any garden.

SPORTY SPICE It’s red, it’s shiny, and it’s really fast. But the new Infiniti Q60 is far from flawless, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.
hey say good things come to those who wait. And here’s your proof. The new Infiniti Q60 Red Sport. A car that Infiniti – and I suspect many people who have an interest in the Japanese luxury brand – have been waiting for. Truth is, Infiniti’s very emergence in the Australian market has been a lengthy waiting game in itself. When the marque launched Down Under five years ago, they did so with a reasonably impressive selection of models, from
sharp-looking SUVs to luxury sports coupes. But the problem was that most of these models were part-way through their model life – and had been on sale in other markets for at least a couple of years. That situation is slowly beginning to change. The Q60 will take on the likes of BMW’s 4 Series, Audi’s A5 and Benz’s C-Class coupe, and Lexus’ RC in a bid to entice cashed-up empty-nesters. It’s a niche offering, no doubt, but it adds a sexy-looking halo to the improving Infiniti fleet. Unless you’re a real boy racer – and I
suspect most typical Q60 buyers are not – much of the twin-turbo V6’s performance will go untapped for the better part. The turbo four still gets the Q60 up and rolling more than respectably, will keep accelerating all the way through the mid-range where it has decent shove for overtaking, and is acceptably quiet and reasonably frugal. So what’s not to like? Well, the big letdown was with the steering. For a biggish, sturdily built machine it’s surprisingly nervous on the road, particularly at low speed. Steering is vague and not particularly well weighted and requires frequent inputs from the driver. That skittishness seems to resolve itself somewhat at highway speeds, where it is more well-grounded and a smooth and serene cruiser. The jittery steering is also slightly less noticeable when the Sport or Sport Plus modes are engaged – but the Infiniti still falls noticeably short of best-in-class in this department, particularly when compared to Euro rivals and even its Lexus counterparts from Japan. It’s fair to assume that most Infiniti buyers in general are in the more mature category, so this might not necessarily be a deal-breaker. But it’s a substantial flaw in an otherwise very impressive machine. The Q60 certainly delivers on premium comfort and style, and its levels of standard
specification are high. Finishes, too, are very pleasing. Practicality-wise, it’s pretty decent for a car with two doors and such a low profile. The boot is wide and deep enough to swallow up a set of golf clubs without any compromise – possibly two if you’re a careful packer – or a couple of decent suitcases if you’re heading off for the weekend. But in terms of a complete driving experience? Well, we might need to wait for the next model.
INFINITI Q60S RED SPORT HOW BIG? It’s fundamentally a mid-sized two-door, four-seater – although for most owners the rear seats will be an occasional, rather than regular feature. For two adults plus a couple of smaller kids, it’s quite generous. HOW FAST? Seriously quick if you opt for the more expensive twin-turbo V6 model. It will reach the speed limit in under five seconds which is comparable to German rivals costing tens of thousands more. HOW THIRSTY? This is where the smaller, four-cylinder option might be more attractive. Still, given its performance potential, the Red Sport still delivers a reasonable 8.9L/100km thirst. HOW MUCH? The more docile, four-cylinder Q60 GT starts from T62,900 ($69,935 drive away) – while the full-fat Red Sport will set you back $97,235 on the road.

INTERSTATE BUYERS FOLLOW LOCALS TO BLI BLI
li Bli’s Parklakes 2 residential community is now down to less than 20 blocks of available land following strong enquiry and sales to local buyers as well as those from interstate. Parklakes 2 director Robert Flipp said the 440-lot development had sold around 18 home sites per month since it launched in mid 2015. “It’s hard to believe the project is about to come to an end but it has vindicated our decision to create a high-quality masterplanned community which appeals to a broad section of the market. “We currently have land starting from $315,000 for a 600m2 lot and there are also a number of turn key house and land packages which start from $491,457 for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home,” Flipp says. Sydney-based Leuan Williams and his wife Magdalena have recently purchased a block at Parklakes 2, where they are currently building their dream home on a spacious 1,050m2 lot. “We are expecting our first child soon and we were keen to get out of the Sydney rat
Sydney, so it’s the best thing we can do for our family’s future,” he says. Sally and Rob Slater have also moved into their new GJ Gardner home at Parklakes 2 after relocating from Ballarat in country Victoria. “Parklakes 2 has such a great countrylike atmosphere, we are coming off 20 acres but we were really pleased to buy a 869m2 lot to build our home and still have plenty of room for our dogs and cats and store our caravan. “Rob can go bike riding in the estate’s nearby forest or kayak in the river and the Maroochy River golf course is just a few minutes drive away. We can also walk to the nearby park and we can’t wait to meet our local neighbours at The Local cafe,” Sally says. race and have a spacious home with some land for the child to enjoy. Parklakes 2 ticked a lot of boxes for us, as the lots were large and flat, it’s a premium estate and we love the fact that we have access to walking trails, a one-hectare park and a cafe along with a P-12 school that will open in January 2019.
“We also love the fact that it is so close to local shops, great beaches and the airport, as I will still need to travel back to Sydney for work purposes. We are building through Stroud Homes and the house and land price is very reasonable, there’s no way you could afford anything like this in
The final stages of Parklakes 2 are now selling, with an average lot size of 720m2 and great views of Mt Coolum, the lakes and park. Less than 20 lots remain, visit the team today at 2 Agnes Place or call 5448 6442 or visit parklakes2.com.au.
new grass cricket wicket at Bli Bli State School, kindly donated by the developers of Parklakes 2, has now been completed and is ready for the forthcoming cricket season. Bli Bli Community Association President and Maroochydore Cricket Club junior co-ordinator, Chris Baker, says the completion of the cricket pitch was the result of a collaboration between the Bli Bli Community Association, Bli Bli School, Parklakes 2 and the Maroochydore Cricket Club. “For a long time, the school’s pitch has been unsatisfactory, it was 30 years old and not suitable or safe to use as the surface was uneven and the area around the pitch needed to be re-grassed. “The aim of developing a new wicket was to enable students the opportunity to play on the wicket while at school and also form teams to train after school and play for a club on the weekends while using this pitch. “All four partners have committed to the project to ensure the school finally has a high quality cricket pitch which can be used to foster the game in the local community. “It is certainly the newest cricket pitch on the Sunshine Coast,” he says. Nic Roberts, Queensland Cricket’s Market Development Officer Sunshine Coast, says he

was delighted to see the installation of the new cricket pitch at Bli Bli School. “The Sunshine Coast is home to many wonderful cricketers in the local competition, as well as those who have gone onto higher honours like Peta Rogerson, Ashley Noffke and emerging all-rounder James Bazely. “I have no doubt that this new pitch will encourage a whole new generation of boys and girls to take up the sport, as they will have easy access to it during the day and on weekends. I also congratulate the local community groups for coming together to complete this project, together they have created possibly the best cricket pitch and setting on the Sunshine Coast and a great asset for Bli Bli, which will remain for many years,” he says.
RUN OR WALK FOR A CAUSE
unshine Coast residents are encouraged to come out and run or walk around the picturesque Parklakes 2 residential community on Sunday September 24 in order to raise funds for the anti-domestic violence cause White Ribbon. Organised by the Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch Association, the inaugural event is expected to attract people of all ages and abilities, who will embark on a leisurely four-kilometre walk or run and then enjoy a market-style atmosphere in the Parklakes 2, one-hectare park, which will include food vans, stalls, live music and children’s activities, as well as great food and coffee from the estate’s own cafe, The Local. Organiser and president of the Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch, Edith Blanck, says there has been an overwhelming response from locals wanting to either walk or run
and support the White Ribbon foundation. “We’ve had a number of residents within Bli Bli, as well as those people who live at Parklakes 1 and 2 and both the local Halcyon Retirement Villages, who are keen to participate. It’s a really active and engaged community and we’re thrilled that they want to support such an important cause.” “We’ve also worked hard to create a carnival-like atmosphere when the participants conclude, so they can relax and enjoy their Sunday while also supporting local community groups,” Blanck says. The fun run will be professionally managed by Jason Crowther from Atlas Multi Sports, who are responsible for some of the region’s largest sporting events.

BUILDING APPROVALS CONTINUE TO RISE ON THE COAST There’s an optimistic mood in the Coast’s property and construction industry, pointing to greater stability in our local economy. were 32 per cent higher compared to the building approvals issued in the previous year. “Game-changing projects such as the new Maroochydore CBD, Caloundra South (Aura), Palmview (Harmony), the opening of the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport have been setting the scene for increased building approvals,” he says. “These projects attract a range of investments, providing greater stability for our local economy and assisting to smooth out the traditional boom bust cycle. “The majority of the $1.72-billion in building approvals continued to be of a residential nature, however last financial year there was increased growth in the proportion of multiple dwelling units with a total of $341 million approved, an increase of 68 per cent from 2015/16. “The majority of these approvals
have been recorded within the enterprise corridor between Caloundra and Maroochydore.” Jamieson says there has also been an increase in the value of building approvals relating to uses such as offices, shops and restaurants, with companies such as Youi committing to a new global headquarters on the Coast. Master Builders regional manager Will Wilson says the report indicates the economic and building industry outlook for the Coast is very stable. “The report shows us that business confidence in the building and construction industry consistently remained at a high level during the 2016/17 financial year,” Wilson says. “The building industry recognises the Sunshine Coast Council’s continued efforts to provide the right conditions for developments to prosper in the right locations.”
“Master Builders regional manager Will Wilson says the report indicates the economic and building industry outlook for the Coast is very stable”
unshine Coast building approvals are at their highest level in eight years, with the Sunshine Coast Council issuing $1.72-billion in approvals for the 2016/17 financial year. The council’s Development Indicators Financial Year Highlights Report, which
presents a selection of statistics on development activity throughout the past 12 months, show building approvals in excess of $1 billion for three consecutive years. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the building approvals issued in the last financial year

AGENT PROFILE With 17 years specialising in acreage and lifestyle property, Steve Perry and his team at Remax Property Sales is coming off the hottest month in sales ever. What was your first job? Big W at Clifford Gardens in Toowoomba. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Sounds corny, but I love being at home in Diddillibah. Cotton Tree and Mooloolaba are also right up there. Describe your perfect day. Wake up, an early massage, Cotton Tree for a stand-up paddleboard and swim, another massage, relaxing with family and friends, and a campfire at night. What is the best holiday you’ve ever had? Coming to the Sunshine Coast when I was young and riding through the cane fields. What are you reading right now? Mainly emails (the life of a real estate agent) and Harry Potter to my daughter. How long have you worked in the real estate business and what attracted you to it in the first instance? I began in 2000, so 17 years.
What was the first property you sold? One-and-a-half acres between Nambour and Yandina. I remember the negotiating, which was all verbal back then. What was your most recent sale? 138 Gold Creek Road, North Arm. After being listed for 12 months with another agent, we sold it for the full asking price of $1,550,000. What do you love most about your job? Obviously the money is good, but helping buyers and sellers and upcoming real estate agents gives me a real buzz these days. What is the most difficult thing about your job? Dealing with unrealistic people. What’s best – auction or private treaty? I am very open-minded. We usually go with price, but every property I have auctioned has sold. How have you seen the property market change in the past 12 months? It’s exciting, lots of buyers and not many sellers. This is the best market, I love it. How do you see it changing in the next 12 months? I hope it doesn’t change too much, the only thing that will put a brake on the market is rising interest rates, in my opinion. Your tip for buyers? Have your finance approved and know what you want and act decisively when you find it. Your tip for sellers? Call me.

MORE LIKE A PENTHOUSE THAN A HOUSE – THIS IS ‘PERFECTION’ 29 Bowerbird Place, Mons One of the most unassuming homes from the street, yet how that changes when you enter. This really is a one-of-a-kind and so very special in every sense of the word, hence why I call it “PERFECTION”. The planning, attention to detail and meticulous thought and execution throughout is exemplary. Stunning high-end ﬁxtures and ﬁrst-class quality rivalling some of the world’s best hotels is on offer here. It’s more like a 6 star PENTHOUSE than a house, with total seclusion, privacy and very little maintenance required (no mowing), I have to admit that in all my years of selling real estate and writing text and stories about how good some properties are, I’ve struggled to do this one justice. You will truly only appreciate in person and I will guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Idyllically placed amongst the trees, and just moments from the glittering waters of Shelly Beach, words simply cannot describe how truly breathtaking this place is. This magnificent home is on an exceedingly private 976m2 allotment with plenty of space for your boat and car collection. This home was built in the 1940’s, handcrafted from solid concrete and beautiful hardwood timbers. It is lovely and cool in summer and warm in winter, but it you’re feeling a little chilly, it has a charming working fireplace. No matter which way you look, there is always beachfront abound. Take your pick from the family friendly Kings Beach or Shelly beach, go for a surf or perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing. There’s no wonder as to why it’s such a tightly held pocket.

with MWP’s man in the water
Hey gang, here we go again with Hurley Pro at Trestles. Swell prediction seems quite small so watch the Brazilians fly. It is such a perfect wave that it should have solid, high quality surfing. Let’s hope Julian keeps a roll on. Now, this weekend has great conditions predicted so have fun, although the swell will only be small. I was a little bored last Saturday and decided to go for a long distance stand up. I was about 800 metres off the beach when I spotted a mother and calf whale slapping the water and playing. I sat down and enjoyed the show before they decided to approach me – what a great experience. Have a great weekend peeps.

MY MY FUN
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
With Venus visiting your domestic zone (until September 20) it’s time to cocoon in comfort or entertain in style. So your quote for the coming week is from philosopher Goethe “He is the happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.”
Geminis can be real scatterbrains – all ideas and no action. But you have more chance of putting plans into practice at the moment, as your ruler Mercury moves through the practical sign of Virgo (until September 30).
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
Early in the week is the best time to work hard and make some extra money, as Saturn blesses your business acumen and Venus boosts negotiation skills. Pace yourself on Thursday, otherwise you’ll be a cranky crab.
Vivacious Venus is visiting your sign (until September 20) so you’re in lion razzle-dazzle mode, and are primed to make the most of lucky opportunities. But don’t let your enthusiasm for a project overtake your ability to knuckle down and actually get the job done.
The sun, Mercury and Mars are moving through Virgo, so you’ll be extra bold and brainy this week as you dazzle others with your methodical mind, broad general knowledge and close attention to detail.

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20) Unhappily single? This week, finding love is linked with holiday travel, a business trip, a foreign friend or an international connection. Attached Aries – Monday and Friday are fabulous days to up the romance factor and enjoy each other’s company.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
Have you been getting carried away with extravagant promises? It’s time to walk your talk! This week Saturn brings you back down to earth with a thud, as you reassess your plans and then head off in a much more sensible direction.
The planets give your fertile imagination a welcome boost (especially on Friday). So don’t waste the opportunity to put your creativity to use. Be inspired by birthday great Lauren Bacall: “Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.”
On Monday, revisit your current goals and take steps to make them reality. But, when it comes to controversial conversations, keep your cool and avoid the temptation to over-react. You can’t control what others say but you can control your response.
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
This week, when it comes to love, work and money, the devil is definitely in the detail. So keep your eyes and ears wide open, as you search for important (and clandestine) clues along the way.
This week favours nurturing partnerships, seeking out joint ventures and stabilising your support network, as Venus moves through your relationship zone. If you’re single, sparks could fly with someone who you have known for a long time.
A close relationship looks complicated mid-week, so tread carefully. When it comes to work, career and/or your true calling, don’t settle for second best. If you surround yourself with accomplished colleagues, you will learn heaps.
Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD
Richard O’Leary is challenging readers to join him in memorising a poem – no peeking.
can see myself seated with my teacher on the old school steps, face contorted in concentration as I struggle to find the right word. I locate it in that mystery that is memory and continue to recite the rest of the poem. That must be more than three decades ago now, I would have been 10 or 11, in the last year of primary school. Memorising a poem was part of our curriculum and I remember that day because I’d studied so hard to imprint those words on my brain. Thirty or so years later and I can’t even name the piece let alone any of its lines, but I can recall the sense of accomplishment. I felt that way again walking into my HSC English exam with 43 quotes from Othello locked away in mental drawers which I could pull out at any time. Those drawers are now locked or jammed, and when I tug at their rusty handles just one phrase escapes the damage and dust, Iago’s warning about the green-eyed monster.
And I am a little jealous of that younger brain, which soaked up sentences and stats at will, whether it be the winners of every Melbourne Cup, or the dates war broke out. So I was interested to read this week about efforts to resurrect the dying art of memorising poems.
“I was interested to read this week about efforts to resurrect the dying art of memorising poems” This is a skill that has been around forever and a day, the first Australians have a proud storytelling tradition which dates back tens of thousands of years, and survives the test of time. Ancient Greeks and Romans recited epic poems from Virgil and Homer, and even in
the last century, scores of students performed verse to improve rhetorical skills and impart moral understanding. Alas, it has become unfashionable. But just like the men in Claude McKay’s If We Must Die we have to “face the murderous, cowardly pack” and fight back. It can start with you and just one poem. I’ve chosen Robert Frost’s Mending Wall, which includes this observation: He is all pine and I am apple orchard. My apple trees will never get across And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him. He only says, ‘Good fences make good neighbours’. It has 45 lines in all, one for each year I’ve been on this planet. I’ve given myself a month, why don’t you join me? Let me know which poem you have committed to memorising and we’ll compare notes in October. email@example.com
