FROM THE EDITOR
Aussies are renowned for their unique take on the English language so Mattel thought it deserving to give Australia its own signature version of Scrabble with localised lingo. The limited-edition game celebrates Australia’s homegrown flavour with an all-Aussie slang glossary. We are giving readers the chance to win one of three prize packs, which include Aussie Scrabble, Harry Potter Scrabble and UNO.
an you believe that we are already heading into the month of October? Is it just me or is this year passing by at an exceptionally fast rate? Next month marks six months until Australia hosts the Commonwealth Games – the fifth time our country has had the honour. And, while our neighbouring city, the Gold Coast, will be in the spotlight, our region will be in on the action. The Games are expected to contribute more than $2 billion to the Queensland economy and the Sunshine Coast is tipped to reap some of the benefits. There are at least three teams who are using our facilities for training and accommodation. Visiting tourists are also expected to make the short journey north to take advantage of our relaxed lifestyle and beautiful environment. There are a number of Coast residents gearing up to represent not only their country, but our region, at the games. One of these is Tessa Wallace – a Caloundra athlete who is on a mission. You can read her story on page 8. From sport to style, there is something for everyone in My Weekly Preview. You will find our wedding feature on page 32. Compiled by journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane, it has plenty of expert advice and inspiration for your big day. Also, readers with the travel bug will enjoy Sami Muirhead’s tales of her Greek adventure (page 20). Until next week, take care.
The prize packs are valued at $90.95 each.

CRAZY FOR COCONUTS Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Mount Ninderry, in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast green belt. First job? I spent two years as a seaman, sailing around the Pacific Ocean. What are you currently working on? I created the first yoghurt made from coconut milk and so my work continues down the same path, testing and trialling new ideas and recipes every day with our great COYO team. At the moment we’re working on expanding our product range, looking into other foods and recipes that will allow us to continue to bring dairy freedom to everyone.
book. You can send me some ideas on our COYO Australia Facebook page. Favourite song? Bula Maleya. It’s a great Fijian war song that I love listening to. Best advice you’ve been given? “Hasten slowly young man,” by my business mentor in 1972. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? There’s nothing quite like the Noosa River at sunset – it’s just magic! If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? Better bus timetables.
“My wife Sandra is the co-founder of COYO and together we have five sons and two daughters”
Your family includes… Our family is very close and continues to grow. All of us have helped shape the family business. My wife Sandra is the co-founder of COYO and together we have five sons and two daughters – there’s Dion, Andrew, Zane, Jonathon and Michael (who passed in 2013), Cherie and Jayne. Jonathon has two handsome sons, Cherie has three handsome sons and Jayne has a beautiful daughter and one handsome son. First car? A yellow Mini, circa 1970.
Henry Gosling BIO
Born and raised in Fiji, COYO co-founder Henry Gosling knows his coconuts. As a child he collected and prepared coconuts for the family dinners. Fast forward to 2009 when he was living a semi-retired life with wife Sandra on the Sunshine Coast and he had the idea to make yoghurt from coconuts. After six months of testing, the Goslings made their first commercial batch of COYO, a product that is now sold all over the world.
Favourite book? My favourite book has to be Fiji by Daryl Tarte. It’s a great read that details the history of Fiji from the time of the wars between the Tongans and Fijians, and then slowly follows through to the Indians as indenture labour, to the first coup. It is riveting reading and very close to me. What are you reading now? I just finished Fiji, so nothing in particular at the moment, although I’m doing a lot of travelling with work so am definitely on the hunt for my next
Best day in your life? The day I created COYO.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? June 9, 2009. [The day Henry first thought about making coconut yoghurt.]
What achievement are you most proud of? Sticking to my passion and a world first in both COYO and the food genre that is coconut yoghurt. You are happiest when? When I’m spending time with my family and enjoying a relaxing Saturday afternoon with my feet up, reading the newspaper. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? When you have an idea and your gut tells you it feels right, follow it through. Tea or coffee? Coffee, single shot. NRL or AFL? AFL. Essendon.

THE GAME PLAN As athletes from around the world start packing their bags for next year’s Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, the Sunshine Coast is also gearing up for the big event. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
“I am hoping to come away with a medal and I’m really striving for that gold” Tessa Wallace

needed to make it in the fast lane. But her path to success has been fraught with health and injury hurdles. Wallace was selected for the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games when she was 16 years old and went on to win a silver medal in the 200-metre breaststroke behind Leisel Jones. Two years later, in 2012, Wallace qualified for the London Olympics and
Taylor McKeown came to the fore and later went on to win 200-metre breaststroke gold medal. Wallace finished eighth. Wallace tells My Weekly Preview she decided to take 2016 off in a bid to rejuvenate her body and rediscover her passion for competitive swimming. She has spent this year focusing on having “a good crack” at the Commonwealth Games.
“There are still tickets available if people want to get down to the Games and watch these impressive athletes compete” Peter Beattie AAP
t is a sporting event unlike anything regional Australia has ever seen before and in a little over six months’ time, it will take over the Gold Coast. It is the XXI Commonwealth Games. From April 4 to 15, more than 6600 athletes and team officials from 70 nations will converge on the Gold Coast to compete in 23 sports. They’ll be supported by about 15,000 volunteers, their every event watched by a global audience of 1.5 billion people. The Sunshine Coast won’t miss out on the action. Our region has attracted interest from international teams, including the 300-strong Team Scotland, which will be based at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort and use facilities at the University of the Sunshine Coast in the lead-up to the Games. Team Wales will also base its athletics and swimming teams on the Coast, along with the smaller Isle of Man team and the 50-strong Team Niue, which will use the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre in Currimundi for pre-games training. While the only official event to be held in our region is the Queen’s Baton Relay, which will pass through Caloundra on March 27, there is no shortage of talented local athletes who are already knuckling down to prepare for a tilt at the Games. Among them is Tessa Wallace. The 27-year-old Caloundra swimmer is no stranger to the extreme dedication
despite battling a bout of Ross River Fever, she advanced to the semi-finals of the women’s 200-metre breaststroke and finished with the 15th-best time overall. It was at the end of 2012 that Wallace was diagnosed with Lyme disease and began to come to terms with what that would mean for her competitive career. By 2014, she was back in form and qualified for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, just scraping on to the team in third place as fellow Sunshine Coast teenager
“I am hoping to come away with a medal and I’m really striving for that gold,” she says. “This will be one of the toughest Games – there are a lot of big competitors in the line-up, so it will be an exciting Games. I definitely can’t let my guard down.” Australian swimmers will have to wait until five weeks out from the Games’ opening ceremony before competing for a spot in the green and gold team. But one thing Wallace is mindful of
doing is pushing herself too hard. Living with the extreme fatigue and muscle aches associated with Lyme disease has forced the athlete to learn how to find her own balance between training with her father John at the Caloundra Aquatic Centre, working at a Caloundra real estate business and competing. “I need to make sure I stick to my strict diet to keep my immune system strong and don’t overtrain,” she says. “It’s about being smart and I’ve learnt that as I’ve gotten older. “Like any athlete, I’ve had a couple of injuries here and there, but getting through them only makes you stronger. I’ve had my ups and downs and hopefully this preparation is the one that’s going to really click and show off my true potential at the Games next year.” Wallace says before her self-imposed 2016 break, she found herself “trying to push through a brick wall,” not only physically straining her body, but mentally putting too much on her plate. “There were a lot of breakdowns, and I knew that I wasn’t going to be swimming at my full potential if I kept going like this,” she says. “I came back gradually, and surprised myself with a reasonably good time at trials this year, where I came second in the 200-metre breaststroke and just missed myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY the qualifying time for the World Championships. I was still extremely happy with my time and it gave me a good insight into what I’m capable of come next year.” Training has already kicked up a notch for Wallace, as it has for dozens of other hopefuls across the region. Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC) chairman Peter Beattie says the Sunshine Coast is poised to play an important role in the success of the Games. “We already have 120 volunteers from the Sunshine Coast who have signed on to assist with the operations of the Games, and the Queen’s Baton Relay will come through the Sunshine Coast. So people will have the opportunity to see it and be a part of it as millions of people would have from around the world,” he says. “There are still tickets available if people want to get down to the Games and watch these impressive athletes compete live, with free public transport to the Gold Coast included with every ticket. “Residents will also be able to watch the international teams who are basing themselves on the Sunshine Coast train before the Games begin.” Speaking to My Weekly Preview while on the Sunshine Coast last week, Beattie says GOLDOC will accept the handover of the $550 million, 29-hectare Parklands athletes village from developer Grocon in just three weeks, marking the completion of the infrastructure needed for the Games. “Preparations are on budget and on
facts • Commonwealth nations makes up 21% of the world’s total land area • The Commonwealth population is 2.1 billion people • There will be 15,000 volunteers and 6600 athletes officials at the games • 70 nations and territories will compete • The Queen’s Baton Relay for 2018 is the longest and most accessible in history, travelling for 388 days over 230,000 kilometres. time,” he says. “This is the first time ever that Commonwealth Games have been held outside of the major cities in Australia, which demonstrates that regional centres are really important. And unlike many other Games held around the world, every sporting venue for the Games, which are
located on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Townsville, and Cairns, were already in existence and in great shape, so we’ll have everything done well in advance of the Games and ensure they are in tip-top shape by the time the athletes arrive.” Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford says the region will reap the rewards that will come from not only being geographically located close to the Goldie, but also from the legwork put in by the Sunshine Coast Council earlier this year. “Sporting-type events have delivered well in excess of $100 million in value in terms of visitation in the last couple of years and their benefits must not be underestimated,” Latchford says. “The council had a stroke of genius and went out to try and attract countries to use the Sunshine Coast as a training ground in the lead-up to the games. Not only do the teams come, but their support mechanisms come and so do their friends and relatives. It is incredibly clever and we are doing what we can to leverage off it. “And, ironically, they will spend longer here training than they will at the actual Commonwealth Games, so they will be eating, drinking, filling up their cars with petrol, and paying for accommodation here. These benefits spread the wealth throughout the entire community, not just those directly linked with tourism.” Latchford says once the Coast “does what it’s so good at – making people feel welcome”, there will undoubtedly be continuing flow-on effects with athletes and spectators staying on or gravitating from the Gold Coast up to the Sunshine Coast pre- or post-Games to see what we are all about. “In terms of direct and indirect expenditure, we are looking at millions and millions in economic benefit to the region,” he says. “The creation of destination awareness is something we cannot put a dollar value on. It’s that substantial.”

RADIO HOST DUBBED THE ‘NEARLYMPIAN’
Ashlea Gierke in her competitive days Picture this: you have trained for five hours a day in the pool for more than a year, competed in countless national and international swim meets and done quite well. But when the time comes for the London Olympic trials, you miss the Olympic Trial final by 0.03. This is the reality of radio presenter Ashlea Gierke, a third of the Hot 91.1 breakfast show. The 27-year-old was a competitive swimmer for 15 years before giving up on her sport after the trials for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014, where she was once again cruelly dealt a blow by missing out on team selection by a rabbit’s whisker. “[Co-hosts Dave Matthews and Sam Coward] call me the Nearlympian because I just missed out, but the thing is that in swimming, there’s never much in it ever,” Gierke says. “At the time it was hard, because I had done a PB, but at the same time, it wasn’t quite where I wanted to be. Years of training come down to that one moment and if you are not in complete, amazing condition, it can be anyone’s race.” Gierke says it will be amazing for the Coast’s athletes to compete in front of a home crowd next year and as she watches some of the swimmers she used to compete against take to the starting blocks, she will know the dedication and hard work that led them to that point. “These athletes make a lot of sacrifices and work every single day to make their dream of being a Commonwealth Games athlete come true,” she says. “To be able to do that while living on the Sunshine Coast is the perfect combination for athletes here. “Get behind our locals and check out the countries who will be here for pre-camps, so you can really get inspired. Hopefully our younger athletes will also be inspired by these Games to go on and achieve their sporting dreams.” Gierke says she has no inclination to return to swimming competitively, and enjoys taking on the guys over the airwaves.

TIME TO GET INTO GEAR FOR BUDERIM 9 CHALLENGE Are you up for the challenge of one, three, or nine hills? Cyclists can enter now for the Buderim 9 Challenge to find out when the event comes to town again in December. Now in its sixth year, organisers are gearing up to welcome avid cyclists to face the challenge of cycling up (and down) nine of Buderim’s toughest hills to raise awareness and funds for Sunshine Coast disability service, CPL, and they are calling on you to join them. Josh Paix, who lives with cerebral palsy and is a regular B9 participant, is challenging cyclists out there to tackle the 76-kilometre course and as many of Buderim’s nine hills as they can in three hours. “Cyclists from across the country, our local cycling clubs and even some from overseas will converge on the streets of Buderim and gear themselves up to ‘Get Over It’ for this unique challenge,” Paix says. Australian champion cyclist Henk Vogels will return as the challenge ambassador and a new category will allow a team of three cyclists to take on three hills each. Last year’s event saw 250 riders, nine sponsors and countless local businesses come on board to help raise more than $24,000 to support children and families on the Sunshine Coast with cerebral palsy. Registrations for the December 17 event, which is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview, are open now with early bird entry for $100 before December 10 and a free rider jersey for entries received before November 14. To sign up for the challenge, visit buderim9.com.au.
SMART BUSINESS MOVE
The council has set up an online survey as a part of its consultation process over the Maroochy River mouth groyne replacement issue. This survey has extended the consultation period to October 6. Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC) spokesperson Jim Cash says some key concerns were raised by the community during the five public information sessions conducted by the council in August. “Despite council staff seeming to push for rocks at the river mouth over geofabric containers, the public were passionate in their objections to rock being used in any way.” Have your say at sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.
DIABETES WALK FOR A CURE Each day, Jo Emery takes her daughter Ahnika (pictured) to Brightwater State School and waves her goodbye. But while other parents’ minds might turn to what is happening next in their day, Jo’s thoughts are constantly with how her daughter will cope with the management of her type 1 diabetes. “What we may take for granted as regular emotions and circumstances, impacts heavily on a diabetic child,” she says. Join the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s ONE Walk on October 1 from 9.30am at Cotton Tree Park to help raise awareness and muchneeded funds to find a cure. Registration kicks off at 9am, with a breakfast barbecue at 8.30am. Visit jdrf.org.au/qld/sunshine-coast/.

MALCOLM TURNBULL MAKES A FLYING VISIT TO COAST Hundreds of people packed into the Caloundra RSL to catch Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on his first visit to Caloundra last Thursday night. Hot topics of the evening included same-sex marriage, energy prices, and the government’s desire to return the budget to surplus by 2020/21. Referring to his opponent, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, as Blackout Bill on numerous occasions, Turnbull says there is a strong need for backup and storage for the electricity grid and says the gas shortage on the east coast is another significant problem and one he has tackled with restrictions on gas exports.
FETAL ALCOHOL DISORDER WORKERS GET $1.3M BOOST A $1.3-million Federal Government funding boost will expand Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service’s ability to care for children dealing with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and their families. The funding will result in an increase in the total number of clients by 45 per year and will run until 2020. The Child Development Service was relocated from Nambour General Hospital to a larger space at Wises Road in Maroochydore in 2014 and service director Dr Heidi Webster says early diagnosis and support is essential for children with a FASD.
SPECIAL HONOURS BESTOWED AT GRADUATION The poet behind Gallipoli, Homecoming and Enter Without So Much As Knocking, has received an Honorary Doctorate at a University of the Sunshine Coast graduation ceremony. Dr Bruce Dawe is 87 years old and still teaches classes in poetry. USC staged four graduation ceremonies at the Matthew Flinders Performance Centre in Buderim on Thursday, with more than 400 graduates receiving degrees and certificates. Coolum signwriter Steve Hall also received an Honorary Senior Fellowship for his continued support of USC’s Design study program.
A Nambour General Hospital (NGH) specialist has been awarded a prestigious research grant by the Emergency Medicine Foundation for her work to improve emergency care for older people. NGH specialist Dr Elizabeth Marsden has received a $100,000 research grant to evaluate ways of extending the flagship Geriatric Emergency Department Intervention (GEDI) program to other hospitals in Queensland. The program, established at NGH over several years, has brought major improvements to the care of the elderly. The program, which is now also operating at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, involves specially trained nurses, who are the single point of contact for elderly patients.
VALE JOHN GALLINA John Gallina, the man at the helm of Sunshine Coast’s disaster management program, has been hailed a logistical expert, a calming influence under pressure, a man of compassion, a consummate professional and a gentle giant. Gallina passed away unexpectedly on September 24 while holidaying with family on Hamilton Island. Mayor Mark Jamieson says his leadership contributed immensely to our community’s preparedness and resilience during natural disasters. “John was a gentleman whose passion for the region was exemplified through his service in protecting Queenslanders through his service with Queensland Fire and Rescue, as well as his work coordinating Sunshine Coast Council’s disaster response.”

A Sunshine Coast veteran returned to Timor-Leste to promote peace and renewal in the troubled nation.
ormer Sunshine Coast soldier Eric Kerr has been in Timor-Leste on another tour of duty, but instead of donning the camos, this time he wore Lycra and pedalled for peace. Kerr, an army veteran of East Timor and Iraq, was leading a team in the gruelling Tour de Timor. Kerr, Emmett Karstrom, Jon King and Mike Prince were competing against 380 other riders in taking on the five-day, multi-stage race, which ran from September 19 to 23 and covered around 500 kilometres, including a total of 10,000 metres of climbing. The team was representing Caloundra-based not-for-profit organisation The Encouragement Foundation, which provides safe and supervised dormitory accommodation through Encouragement House in Maliana for remote, rural students so they can have the opportunity to go to high school. Kerr previously visited Timor-Leste on a United Nations Transitional Administration East Timor mission in 2000 to co-ordinate resupply and distribution of logistics. “Even when presented with hardship, the Timorese people remain positive and value
Mike Prince, Jon King, Emmett Karstrom and Eric Kerr at the start line. their family as the most important element in their life,” Kerr says. “Every day you spend with the Timorese, the more infectious their enthusiasm and willingness to move forward as a nation shines through.” Kerr says he was well-prepared for the gruelling race, with decades of running,
riding and surfing on the Sunshine Coast under his belt, as well as regular exercise through his role as the under 12 Age Manager at Alexandra Headland Surf Life Saving Club. “I’ve been road riding since I was 13 years old and participating in triathlons in more recent years, but I’m new to mountain
biking and I must say in the past few weeks I have learnt the hard way on a few of the technical courses on the Sunshine Coast, entertaining as it was with a number of hard falls,” he says. Kerr’s goal reaches beyond simply raising awareness of Encouragement House and completing the race. He wants to promote the rebuilding of Timor-Leste through sport and education rather than through war and unrest. “It is important in life to contribute to a greater cause and make a difference to people who are not as fortunate as we are living in Australia. For the Timorese, they are rich in culture and value the family as their centre of gravity, which I admire,” he says. “The Tour de Timor is a story of human determination, of courage, of rich culture, of untouched natural wilderness, of international sporting excellence, of young Timorese national heroes and of a resilient people who are embracing and celebrating peace in their young nation.”

SUPPORT CHILDREN LIKE AUSTIN
Childhood illness can be devastating for children and their families, but you can help by digging deep. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ustin Lynch was just starting school early last year when his energetic personality began to wane. At first, doctors thought it might be anxiety at such a big change that was causing him to become lethargic and withdrawn. But when one side of his face began to droop, Austin’s mum Sarah quickly took him to the hospital. Their lives were never the same again. A CT scan showed Austin had a huge tumour in his throat. Within hours, he was rushed to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital where he endured a series of tests and scans, which revealed he had Burkitt lymphoma – a rare and extremely aggressive form of childhood cancer. Austin’s family was given the devastating news that the disease had already spread through his central nervous system and into his liver and kidneys, and that his chance of survival could be as low as 70 per cent. Austin, who is from Maroochydore, had to endure multiple lumbar punctures, general anaesthetics and six months of
intensive chemotherapy, resulting in countless hospital admissions. The chemo made Austin so sick, he couldn’t eat or keep any food down. He needed a nasogastric tube in order to keep his nutrient levels up and to stop him from losing too much weight.
At just six years of age, Austin was so scared about what was happening that his medical team decided to limit how many doctors were allowed in his room at one time, while his parents and the nursing staff worked hard to build back his trust. As part of this, Austin enjoyed the
distraction of the services provided by the Children’s Hospital Foundation including bravery beads, bedside play and music therapy. He now no longer has a nasogastric tube, but his eating habits have been affected by his treatment. Good nutrition will continue to be a focus for him on his road to recovery. The young Sunshine Coast boy is one of the faces of the Children’s Hospital Foundation and Woolworths’ Regional Wall Token Campaign, which raises funds for distractive therapy resources, interactive play equipment and toys at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Rosie Simpson is calling on people to purchase a $2 token from Woolworths until October 1. Simpson says since the launch of the partnership began 30 years ago, more than $50 million has been raised to help fund lifesaving research, vital medical equipment and support programs for thousands of sick kids. “Childhood illness hurts. It hurts the kids who must endure it and it hurts their families,” Simpson says.

MAMA KNOWS BEST
Sami Muirhead has returned from her Greek island adventure with wisdom on leading a happy life imparted by a fabulous 78-year-old.
had to travel 32 hours to the Greek islands to meet one of the wisest ladies I have ever known and ask her advice on being happy, being happily married and feeling OK when we look in the mirror. It was done surrounded by groves of lemon, bay and olive trees on the island of Lesbos. The island borders the Aegean ocean and is incredibly rich in minerals, which are found in the ocean. Many bath in the waters there, as they say it helps a women age with beauty. Pass the bikinis. Victoria is the ultimate Greek mama who is 78 and spends half her year in Melbourne and the other half in her native home of Lesbos. The grandmother is gorgeous and larger than life. Think Sophia Loren dressed in a Camilla kaftan dripping in gorgeous gold jewellery and overflowing with vitality. “My secret to being happy is that I have a beautiful family. That is all that counts. My family. I have three gorgeous daughters and my son is a divine man and of course I have a good husband and my grandchildren give me a lot of good energy,” Victoria beams. The wisdom continues. “I always pray every day and that keeps me young and I tell myself not to worry as God is with me. What will be will be. I smile even when I feel sad. I tell all young women, do not let little problems become big problems.”
As for a recipe for a happy marriage, the wise woman says remember to say sorry to each other often and if you know your husband has done something wrong, do not say anything in front of anyone else but wait until you are home in private and then talk about it in a very calm way. Duly noted Victoria (married 53 years and counting). So perhaps next time we are at a barbecue, I should not snap at my long suffering hubby that he is not eating enough salad in his diet and I am sick to death of cleaning the loo. It’s called grace and decorum and what a wonderful reminder to live this way. Lastly, I asked Victoria why Greek women are so body confident no matter what their shape, and comfortable in their own skin, while Aussies seem to shudder at getting in our togs in front of anyone. I travelled with eight Aussie women and seven of them groaned about getting into their cossies. And we are raised on the beach. Why are we largely ashamed? “We tell our girls they are so beautiful from the day they are born and our bodies are just our bodies. Do not worry if you are not perfect. You are alive and healthy. Eat the gelato. A man likes a woman who looks happy, not who looks hungry. This is all that counts.” Bravo Victoria!

Is it good marketing or just good weather that has brought more tourists to the Sunshine Coast, asks Bill Darby?
ourism has been in the spotlight again this week with the release of national visitor data for the year ending June 2017. It’s easy to know when these figures are released, because the tourism bodies that receive council funding for attracting visitors rush straight to the media. They can’t wait to tell us all what a great job they’re doing. Compared to other regions, the council budget allocated to Sunshine Coast tourism marketing is really only a drop in the bucket. That said, this is all the more reason why the scarce resources we have available to us are wisely spent. We need marketing strategies that get us the best bang for our buck. There has been lots to crow about in regional tourism growth over the past two years. The Coast has ridden a wave of success, with rises in both domestic and international visitors. Plenty of people have put their hand up to take the credit. We are told that the investment into the airport and an increase in scheduled flights has grown the tourism economy. We are also told sponsoring major events to attract elite athletes to the region is cementing our reputation as a world-class destination. Our tourism body Visit Sunshine Coast now employees more people and has its fingers in more pies than ever before. Expensive forays into non-traditional markets has defined recent policy around tourism and events promotion in our region – and the ratepayers are footing the bill. All
the while, Brisbane’s loyal drive market has largely been taken for granted. More recently, there has been cause for concern. While the spin doctors talk about increases in domestic arrivals both from interstate and Brisbane, they’re masking the real picture. The Bruce Highway might be more congested with day-trippers and those visiting friends and relatives, but the real tourists are not getting the message. As more Queenslanders are holidaying on the Gold Coast and the Southern Great Barrier Reef, the percentage of visitors staying in Coast holiday accommodation has declined. Nowhere is this trend more pronounced than from Caloundra to Maroochydore. What if the recent purported growth in the region’s tourism sector isn’t a result of all the new events and the big salaries being paid out to the tourism bureaucracy? What if we’ve simply been riding a rising tide thanks to great weather, easy credit and favourable foreign exchange rates? In my view, this is the frank discussion that needs to be had. It has been six years since the formation of Visit Sunshine Coast. The growth in both tourism and events expenditure from council revenue has been exponential. With holiday numbers from Brisbane in decline, the local tourism industry is exposed. Over 90 percent of tourism revenue is delivered through the drive market. While the statistics can be made to look rosy, no one seems interested in this inconvenient truth.
Bill Darby is a businessman and general manager of Caloundra’s Rumba Beach Resort. He has an extensive career in the tourism industry. For more visit billdarby.com.au.

Spot a seal and take in the views at the beautifully rugged Cape Palliser
CAPE PALLISER GETS THE SEAL OF APPROVAL The views make the climb worthwhile. By Karen Sweeney, AAP.
he red and white lighthouse stands out against the dark rocks and grey skies at the southernmost point of New Zealand’s North Island. Two hours from Wellington along narrow coastal roads and over tall mountain ranges, the lighthouse appears like a beacon, a short way up the hillside. It looks like an easy walk, but from the car park at the bottom you see the real story.
22 My Weekly Preview | September 29, 2017
One steep staircase goes straight up the hillside one step straight after the next; not zigzagging like you might expect health and safety laws might require. About halfway up the 251 stairs, the step height grows subtly, only noticeable by the fact the burning in your glutes gets a little bit worse. Fortunately there’s plenty of excuses to stop and take pictures of the 18-metre structure that looms ahead, and
the waves crashing on the rock that you hear behind you. There’s not much to see at the top, but the small fenced area around the lighthouse offers stunning views of Palliser Bay and the Rimutaka Ranges. It’s windy, a little bit wet and the clouds are dark and threatening, but the views are captivating. A short distance off the coast a fishing boat traces back and forward, probably from nearby Ngawi. Cape Palliser is the North Island’s largest seal colony and during the summer months it attracts hundreds of visitors to see the seals and their babies. On this particular day, six laze around on the rocks, rolling and scratching, yawning and sleeping and, of course, posing for pictures. We spot another two perilously close to the road looking like large, grey boulders
– less than a metre from the gravel track. The drive to Cape Palliser from Wellington takes you via the Rimutaka Ranges, which separate the capital and the east coast. The steep and winding road drops steeply off the side in places before the landscape suddenly turns flat. The coastal road is two lanes most of the way, becoming one in sections where the road has literally crumbled into the ocean and over a series of single-lane bridges that are common across New Zealand. You reach the coast at Lake Ferry where you should stop if you’re in need of coffee (there are no cute beachside coffee shops en route). There is, however, the Captain’s Table Food Truck at Ngawi. It sells snacks and ice-cream, but unfortunately the sad little chalk sign warns customers “sorry no coffee”.
IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE Air New Zealand flies from most Australian capital cities to Wellington. Cape Palliser is a two-hour drive and an easy day trip from there. STAYING THERE There are no accommodation options in Cape Palliser, so you’ll need to rest your head in Wellington.

Invest in a mitt – It stops streaks and keeps the formula off your hands. Use only the excess product on your mitt for your hands, feet and ankles. 3. Lily white?

WHAT ABOUT THE INCOME?
n the world of the 24-hour news cycle, it is easy to get bogged down in the news of the day and worry about the swings and roundabouts of the property and stock markets, or the negative headlines and geopolitical issues facing the world. But a successful investor needs to block out this short-term noise and focus on the long term. Long-term wealth is achievable, and all that is required is a bit of planning and a lot of discipline. Most people know that any investment needs to grow, but there are two sides to the wealth creation coin – growth and income. The value of an asset’s income stream
is often overlooked, but it is often the more valuable component. Take the Australian Stock Market as an example. The ASX 200 index over the past five years has achieved an average return of approximately 5.77 per cent per annum.* But this increase reflects only the share price. When you add in dividends – or income – and then reinvest those dividends, the return climbs to 10.57 per
“Long-term wealth is achievable, and all that is required is a bit of planning and discipline” cent per annum.* Over the same time an investment of $10,000 five years ago would be $3,289.02 better off with the income reinvested, and that extra return represents almost 33 per cent of your initial investment. Now imagine the difference that will make over a much longer term when the magic of compounding is factored in. Adversely, think of the internet stocks that rose strongly in the early 2000s but
weren’t producing a profit, or the rental property that is getting old and requiring high maintenance costs. Circumstances like these either had no income or any income was greatly reduced by capital requirements and this, in turn, greatly reduces the overall return on your investment. So, income is very important and should be a key component in any investment decision. Be aware that there are traps for inexperienced investors who are chasing higher income-paying investments, so speaking to your investment professional is strongly advised. However, those who focus on the long term, block out the noise of the day and develop a suitable overall strategy will be well on their way. * Returns sourced from Morningstar, five years to August 30, 2017.

EMPLOYMENT UP Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson has welcomed new statistics which show employment opportunities in the region are on the increase and unemployment figures are amongst the lowest in the state. The figures show that employment in the region is up 11,500 over the year – with 6400 jobs in construction alone. “The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy focuses on achieving four goals for our region over the next 20 years: to grow the economy to $33 billion – triple what it is now; to provide 100,000 new jobs in high-value industries; to produce 20 per cent of goods and services produced for export; and to increase household incomes so they exceed the Queensland average. “We will achieve that by delivering jobs,’’ Mayor Jamieson says.

FROM THE MAYOR
Boosting employment is at the cornerstone of my mayoralty, with council dedicated to growing and diversifying our jobs market. We received some very welcome statistics recently, which clearly showed we are getting more Sunshine Coast locals into jobs. Employment opportunities in the region are on the increase, with 11,500 jobs added over the past 12 months, and our unemployment figure is amongst the lowest in the state at 4.8 per cent. On Monday, I was delighted to officially open Langs Building Supplies’ new $20-million facility at Bells Creek. Langs’ investment is estimated to have contributed $54 million to the regional economy during construction alone and once fully operational, it is estimated they will contribute $193 million to the regional economy annually. It’s also a great opportunity for locals, with Langs planning to double their existing staff numbers in the next 12 to 18 months. This will see their total staff numbers reach up to 250 by the time they are fully up and running in about 18 months time. Thank you to Langs for your great support of our region.

A PLAN FOR THE ARTS It’s an exciting time for arts on the Sunshine Coast. The Sunshine Coast Arts Advisory Board, on behalf of council, is inviting the arts community to be part of a conversation that will help to develop our region’s first Arts Plan. In partnership with CQ University, we are rolling out a community engagement program designed to understand our arts sector’s needs. To get the conversation started, the board has developed a discussion paper that outlines potential visions, goals, strategies, opportunities and challenges. The sector includes anyone who identifies as an artist, including visual artists, designers, performers, musicians, film-makers, producers, writers, arts workers, set designers and arts educators. Visit our website to register your interest in the engagement program and opportunities in the ongoing plan for the arts – www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ArtsPlan.
CYCLEWAY COMPLETED A new shared cycleway on Goonawarra Drive in Mooloolaba now provides a vital connection for cyclists between schools, TAFE and the University of the Sunshine Coast. The joint council-State Government project is the latest piece of new cycling infrastructure making it easier for our bike owners to ride safely.
Council’s Seniors Bike Rides are a fun and free way to get back into an active lifestyle and refresh your cycling etiquette. Bring your bike to the Dicky Beach Holiday Park on October 11 and Cotton Tree Aquatic Centre on October 12. Both rides start at 10am.
RIVER MOUTH FEEDBACK The deadline for community input and feedback on proposed options for the Maroochy River entrance has been extended until October 6. Online survey results and feedback received through community consultation and the Maroochy River Estuary Consultation Group will help council make an informed decision on a suitable option for upgrade of the river mouth structures.

RUNNING BEARFOOT THROUGH THE MUSIC SCENE
rganic is a word that seems to be thrown around a lot by musicians who want to explain their creative process, but it truly is the very essence of how Sunshine Coast hip-hop/dub/roots band Bearfoot came into existence. Vocalist Asher Chapman had lived in Vanuatu and played drums in a band there before moving back to his native Sunshine Coast, jamming on the guitar and writing some songs before ending up at an open mic
night at the Sol Bar in Maroochydore. He was soon joined by Sean Keenan and Rhys Fox on the drums and bass and as a trio, they began to make their mark. “We ended up getting gigs even though we didn’t have the songs for it,” Chapman says. “We invited our mates to jump up and jam with us and the people who kind of liked it stayed in the band.” Now complete as a six-piece, with Damian Khoury, Rohan Nitschke and Sullivan Heywood rounding out the group,
their latest single Crazy For You has been ripping it up on Triple J Unearthed and was a crowd favourite on their latest tour, which will finish up with a set at the Caloundra Music Festival on September 29. The single, which features Coast singer Andrea Kirwin, is a love song with a difference. Chapman describes it as “a knees-up ska-driven track with twists and turns, celebrating our rollercoaster love lives” and says he wrote it six years ago when he first met the woman who has now become his wife. “Our producer Paulie B got Andrea in to do some backing vocals to add a nice bit of texture to the track, but then we asked her to sing the second verse and it sounded awesome, so we left it there,” he says. “Andrea was our first recorded collaboration and she just nailed it. It’s been really cool that everyone seems to be digging it.” The band as it stands has been together for about 18 months and Chapman says their diverse backgrounds in everything from heavy metal, to reggae, roots and hip-hop means their sounds is as unique as they come. He says he is looking forward to ripping up the stage with Bearfoot as part of a stellar Caloundra Music Festival line-up. Bearfoot is at The Caloundra Music Festival is on September 29. Tickets to the festival, which runs to October 2, are available at caloundramusicfestival.com.

Vaudeville Smash will be at the Eumundi Brewery on September 30 at 7pm. Those wishing to attend the 18+ gig need to just buy a beer at the brewery on the day to receive a free ticket.

THE GAME GETS SERIOUS A weekend of Halloween murder mystery games at a mansion on an island turns sinister for five guests when one of them is suddenly murdered. A Party to Murder, set in the 1980s and directed by Kathryn Barnes, is a murder mystery suspense thriller designed to have you on the edge of your seat. With a portrait of Agatha Christie looming on one side and a leering pumpkin on the other, the fun quickly turns into a macabre Halloween with hidden bodies, creepy tunnels and bumps in the night. As the group becomes more fearful, secrets spill out and the body count rises until there are only two left, and they are not what they seem. A Party to Murder is on at the Lind Theatre in Nambour from September 29 to October 7. Tickets are available from lindlane.com.au or on 1300 732 764.

WHY SPRING WEDDINGS ARE SO POPULAR
pring signifies new beginnings and many couples choose this season as the perfect time to say “I do” and start on the new journey of married life together. In fact, almost 40 per cent of the 120,000 couples that will get married in the next 12 months will do so in spring.
So, what is it about this magical time of year between September and November that makes it so popular for weddings? Twin Waters Golf Club wedding co-ordinator Rebecca Whitaker says spring is the season where you can enjoy the best of everything on offer.
“With the stunning weather, beautiful flowers available and tantalising, fresh produce on hand it comes as no surprise that spring weddings are such a wonderful time of the year,” she says. “At Twin Waters Golf Club, spring means blooming gardens, longer days, immaculate
grounds for your images and wonderful evenings spent on the terrace celebrating with loved ones.” These are the three months of the year where you can enjoy the Goldilocks climate, where it’s not too hot and not too cold, and this gives you a lot of flexibility in the type of outfits you choose for yourselves as well as the bridal party. Spring is also a happy period where there are no major public holidays to worry about, so you won’t have to compromise on the date you have your heart set on. One of the only downsides to a spring wedding is its popularity. It means that if you crave a springtime wedding, you will need to plan a bit further in advance to secure the suppliers and venues you love, as they will be quickly snapped up due to the large volume of couples booking weddings at this time. You might also have to allocate a little more to your wedding budget, as peak wedding season also means suppliers and venues might charge a little more or require larger deposits. But, there are always ways you can chop a little off to total, like booking a mid-week wedding. Continued over page >

PRESERVING YOUR DREAM GOWN
SPRING WEDDING TRENDS
RING TRENDS The song might say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but there is something wonderfully sophisticated about coloured precious stones. The Duchess of Cambridge’s blue sapphire engagement ring is likely the most famous ring of all time, having once belonged to the late Princess Diana. In fact, sapphires have long been a favourite of the British royal family. If you want to look regal at your wedding and beyond, the Avenue J team has some incredible antique and collectable pieces adorned with sapphires that have the potential to become your family heirloom. Avenue J 5444 6204
Unique & Collectable
A TOUCH OF FLORAL
Almost 65 per cent of Australian brides choose to preserve and store their wedding dresses and it is a much more intricate process than simply giving it a dry clean. Fine fabrics, beads, crystals, embroidery and lace look amazing, but can be tricky to clean and preserve. The staff at Regal Dry Cleaners are experts with wedding gowns and will preserve your dress in acid-free tissue paper and box it for safe keeping, so you can admire it for many years to come. Who knows? One day you might offer it to your daughter or daughter-inlaw for her to wear on her big day. Regal Dry Cleaners 0423 819 656
Whether it is floral lace, embroidery or embellishments that showcase flowers in all their beauty, there is no better season than spring to add blooms to your wedding. This gown from Julie-Ann Boutique shows how simple it is to transform an otherwise unassuming gown into something spectacular with floral adornments across the bodice. Julie-Ann Boutique 5453 7777

BROOCH BOUQUETS Why not try a brooch bouquet to make your posy stand out as you walk down the aisle? These bouquets are filled with all types of jewellery. Some brides ask their friends to bring an item to their hen’s night and then use it in their bouquet.

THE LATEST IN
With vintage, rustic and garden weddings continuing to dominate wedding themes, the low, messy bun and the classic half-up, half-down styles are mainstay hairstyles. They can be easily customised with flowers to match your bouquet or hair pieces that enhance your gown. The team at Eco Organic recommends washing your hair the night before your big day, so your hair is easier for your hair designer to work with. You can also ensure your hair is in its best possible condition by having regular moisture treatments every two weeks for up to 12 weeks before your wedding day. Eco Organic, 5451 1300
CLASSIC HALF-UP, HALF-DOWN The look is created by pinning half of the hair up and allowing the rest to flow down. Key elements can include braids, French twists and clean cascading curls with plenty of volume. Perfect for a veil, crown and floral highlights.
THE LOW, MESSY BUN This classic style is created by delicately interweaving and pinning the hair into a knot at the back of the head. For a more playful look, a braided up-style bun is a gorgeous option. Braiding the hair to one side, the style is created when the hair is pulled and pinned at the nape of the neck.
Elegant BLUSH BRIDESMAIDS With vibrant colours the very essence of spring, couples are toning down the hues in their bridal parties by turning to blush pinks and peaches this season. While these subtle colours perfectly complement wedding gowns and classic suits, they can be jazzed up with funky cuts and textures, like this dress from Julie-Ann Boutique.

HOW YOU CAN EASILY BOOST YOUR WEDDING SAVINGS No matter what length of time you have planned for your engagement, the toughest challenge of planning a wedding is sticking to a budget, while still creating your dream wedding. Here are five easy ways you can boost your wedding savings. 1. Don’t buy coffee. If you are a caffeine addict from way back and cannot construct a coherent sentence without the liquid coursing through your veins, this may be a little hard to hear. But that $5 coffee you get from the local barista twice a day while at work is costing you $50 every week. And if your wedding is 12 months away, that’s $2400. That could be your dream wedding gown, or a fair chunk of your reception costs. 2. Sell what you don’t use. While dusting off a floral dress that had retreated to the nether regions of your closet, you may have also
3. Take your own bottle. We live in Australia. We have access to clean, fresh water that is 100 per cent safe to drink, so do not buy bottled water. Invest in a reusable bottle and fill it up at home, in the workplace, or at a public bubbler if you are out and about. It may only seem like a few dollars a pop, but if you had been buying a new bottle every day, these small savings quickly add up. 4. Minimise social events. Heading off to social events can be a costly exercise, especially when they are boozy ones. You don’t have to shy away from special occasion celebrations, but try to limit the amount you spend on going out ‘just because’. 5. Avoid takeaway. We all love a Friday night no-stress takeaway dinner after an exhausting week at work. But when you think takeaway pizza for two from a chain franchise can cost $30 (with a drink and garlic bread, of course), you can see how quickly you can save some dough by being a little more prepared and whipping up something at home.

HARMONY UNVEILS NEW SALES CENTRE
VID Property Group has officially opened the doors to its new Sales and Information Centre in Palmview’s largest masterplanned community Harmony. The highly anticipated Sales and Information Centre will be the gateway to Harmony’s Display World, set to be the largest display village on the Sunshine Coast, showcasing 43 quality homes from 25 national and local builders. With a series of active and relaxation spaces throughout, the precinct will be a one-stop shop where visitors can not only find information about the homes on offer, but experience the atmosphere and lifestyle of Harmony. AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper says the new space offers buyers and residents alike a space to explore and take in the vision for the new community. “We have designed the space to create an environment that’s reflective of the Coast’s lifestyle where visitors will be able to experience first hand the welcoming community AVID is creating in the heart of the Sunshine Coast,” Harper says. “The Sales and Information Centre encourages prospective buyers and visitors to
see Harmony come to life at the touch of a button with its interactive vision zone, before heading out to explore the adjacent Display World homes.” The community’s new connective space will become a hub of activity, with ambient festoon lighting to make the space come to life at night, plus an event lawn for community events, markets and festivities. The space will also feature a 10-metre green wall and reflection ponds designed to mirror the tranquil surrounds of the Sunshine Coast. “2017 has been a huge year for Harmony with the opening of its main entry road Peter Crosby Way, three land releases, a helicopter flight competition and sponsorship of the Sunshine Coast Lightning,” Harper says. “We are excited
for Harmony Display World set to open in November and for our first residents to move in before Christmas.” The centre is located at Harmony Boulevard, via Peter Crosby Way, Palmview.
Harmony’s Sales and Information Centre will be open daily, 10am to 5pm from Friday 29 September 2017. Visit harmonyliving.com.au

Brad Thompson on behalf of Thompson Sustainable Homes says the low- and high-set terrace homes are designed to complement the Sunshine Coast’s weather and lifestyle. “Our terrace homes embrace the weather with the internal layout designed to create airflow and breezeways, decreasing the need for air-conditioning,” he says.

“The external design uses key energyefficient products and materials to reflect the harsh Queensland sun, without compromising the aesthetics of the house.” Designed to embrace the liveability of the Sunshine Coast, Thompson Sustainable Homes’ terrace products mean owners will spend less time on home maintenance and more time enjoying the coastal lifestyle. “The terrace homes’ modern layout and functional design are low maintenance, affordable and appealing to a wide range of buyers in the Sunshine Coast market, including downsizers, couples, young families and first-home buyers,” says Thompson.

LINEAR PARK A QUEENSLAND FIRST
combination of the parks into one long linear space provided a visual and physical connecting ‘green spine’ through the community. “The design encompasses key activation areas, including recreational zones for people to kick the football or run around, to quieter areas to relax and read a book or enjoy a picnic,” Harper says. “What our grand linear park will offer is a clear reflection of the social and recreational needs of our buyers. Designed to bring the community together, our grand linear park will see our future residents connected to Harmony’s 60-kilometre network of pedestrian paths and cycleways.” With more than 90 per cent of all Harmony residents within 250 metres of a local park, getting the family outdoors and active will be a breeze.
Conventional urban design has been thrown out the window during the planning of Harmony’s local park, set to be Queensland’s first grand linear park. Spanning more than five hectares and running the length of 10 football fields, the unusually flat development site was able to challenge traditional design concepts and deliver unprecedented open space and functionality to residents and the wider community. The vision driving the design of open space at Harmony was to be more than just a masterplanned community that provided homes, but a masterplanned community that exceeded future residents’ expectations. AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper says the
EXCITEMENT IS BREWING AS HARMONY OPENS ITS FIRST CAFE The strong aroma of freshly roasted coffee is in the air as the largest masterplanned community in Palmview prepares to open its first cafe – Kai Coffee at Harmony. The highly successful and charitable coffee roasters will open its second cafe on Tuesday, October 3 in the heart of Harmony’s highly anticipated Sales and Information Centre precinct. Kai Coffee owner Sean Naus says the Kai Coffee team is thrilled to be opening at Harmony and can’t wait for residents and locals to become part of the family. “Coffee is becoming ingrained in our culture and with a full breakfast and lunch
menu, why not catch up with friends on our alfresco deck,” Naus says. “To commemorate our official opening we have developed a special ‘Harmony’ blend and expanded our selection of sweet and savoury menu options.” Kai Coffee’s passion for coffee starts at the point of origin, with beans sourced only from suppliers with ethical practices in place. “At Kai, we use only ethically sourced coffee to create excellent quality coffee blends and raise awareness and vital funds for children in developing nations,” Naus adds.
UNWAVERING SUPPORT FOR THE COAST’S ELITE AVID Property Group is thrilled to announce it has extended its partnership with the Sunshine Coast Lightning for the next two years and looks forward to continuing its support of the premiership-winning team. The Sunshine Coast Lightning didn’t hold back in its inaugural season, taking on the established elite in one of the county’s toughest sporting competitions and ultimately taking out the premiership. With all 10 premiership-winning players set to return to the club for the Suncorp Super Netball 2018 season, Lightning may just strike twice for the Coast. AVID Property Group was proud to be a premium partner of the Sunshine Coast Lightning and was thrilled to put its support behind the Coast’s first national elite sporting team. “As new participants competing against Australia’s biggest and best-established opponents, the Sunshine Coast Lightning mirrors some of the challenges faced by AVID,” says AVID Property Group’s Bruce Harper. “With Lightning’s home court at the myweeklypreview.com.au
AVID is continuing to support the Sunshine Coast Lightning netball team University of the Sunshine Coast only around the corner from Harmony, it’s a great synergy for AVID to get behind this fantastic team. With 100 hectares of open space allocated to parklands, recreational sporting fields and community amenities, Harmony is committed to supporting local Sunshine Coast sporting clubs that bring people together with community spirit the cornerstone to their success.

INDUSTRY WRAP the Queensland Market Monitor report. REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says Queensland’s southeast corner once again stood out as the ideal housing market, delivering steady, sustainable growth. “There is no denying the consistency of greater Brisbane’s yearly median house price growth – we have grown steadily for about four years – which is proof that affordability combined with jobs and lifestyle are the recipe for a pretty close to perfect house market,” she says.
SUNSHINE COAST REMAINS TOP PROPERTY MARKET Despite quarterly contractions, the Sunshine Coast remains one of the top performers in the Queensland market, according to the REIQ’s Queensland Market Monitor report for the June quarter. In the Sunshine Coast statistical division, which incorporates the Sunshine Coast Council area as well as Noosa, the market slipped a small 0.3 per cent over the June quarter, from $561,500 in March to $560,000 in June. The unit market also contracted in the June quarter, falling 4.9 per cent, from $410,000 in March to $390,000 in June. Noosa continued leading the residential property market and based on the annual median sale price, Noosa has become the second-most expensive house and land
market after Brisbane and the most expensive unit market in Queensland. The annual median house and unit prices were $645,000 and $479,000 in the 12 months to June 2017. The rental market is the strongest in Queensland, with high demand of rental properties and very low vacancy rates. Similarly, the outlook of the sales market is positive and supported by economic fundamentals such as population growth. The report shows prospects for the Sunshine Coast’s residential property market are positive and supported by a broad plank of infrastructure and development projects. Although the volume of sales over the March quarter fell in the Sunshine Coast
and Noosa areas, the region was also one of only four local government areas that also reported a fall in the number of property listings from the 12 months to May this year. The most popular sale price for houses throughout the region sat between $500,000 and $750,000. Market trends show characteristics of a market favouring vendors, with falling supply and increasing demand and also seeing a shortening of days on market from 54 days in May last year to 46 days in May this year and the second-smallest vendor discount, at just 3.7 per cent. The Coast’s unit market sales fell over the June quarter, but the median sale price increased three per cent to $479,000, making it the most expensive unit market in
FAST facts Based on the annual median sale price, the three most expensive suburbs were: • Sunshine Beach – $1,200,000 • Alexandra Headland – $960,000 • Noosa Heads – $925,000 The three most affordable suburbs were: • Nambour – $370,000 • Landsborough – $381,500 • Coes Creek – $405,000 The most expensive suburbs for units were: • Sunshine Beach – $640,000 • Noosa Heads – $630,000 • Twin Waters – $567,000

AURA RECOGNISED FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION Stockland’s new Aura community recently received an industry accolade for its pioneering approach to environmental protection. Aura has taken out the Erosion Sediment Control (ESC) Leadership Award at the 2017 Healthy Land and Water Awards. The inaugural award, which was presented to Stockland and Shadforths Civil Contractors, acknowledges the innovative approach implemented at Aura to manage erosion and sediment control, protecting Pumicestone Passage and tributaries. The world-leading approach was judged to be above and beyond industry best practice. Ben Simpson, Stockland’s regional manager for Aura, says the Healthy Land and Water accolade showed the exceptional benefits that can be achieved when industry, community and government worked together. “We are delighted to be recognised for our work on water quality outcomes with this exciting award,” Simpson says. “Careful planning and a consultative approach has been the hallmark of Aura’s environmental protection programs from the outset, and we have worked with various stakeholders to ensure excellent water quality results and
THE LUKES ARE BACK IN TOWN
Julie McLellan from Healthy Land and Water with Stockland’s Mark Stephens environmental outcomes continue into the future.” Simpson adds that he hopes this approach to erosion and sediment control will lead to new standards in the development industry, adding that the greenfield project has been given the Green Building Council of Australia’s highest ranking six-star Green Star. “We are proud to be leading the sector in sustainability and hope to influence sustainable design and development practices for all future communities.” Healthy Land and Water is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to improve the sustainable use of land and waterways.
They’re well-known as the friendly faces behind the various Luke’s Supa IGAs across the Sunshine Coast, and now revered business people Mel and Gill Luke are returning to Coolum Beach to make their property debut. The move comes three decades after the duo relocated to the Sunshine Coast to take the reins of a small supermarket opposite Coolum Surf Club in 1986. Three years later, the Lukes opened and grew the very successful Luke’s Supa IGA Coolum Beach in Birtwill Street, which closed in 2011 due to site redevelopment. Mel says their latest venture, a luxury, 24-apartment development overlooking First Bay, was the next chapter in what has been a long and rewarding Coolum connection. “Throughout the 30 years we spent retailing in Coolum, we immersed ourselves in community events such as the Coolum Kite Festival, and formed close relationships with various local community groups with Mel joining Rotary, the Coolum Beach Progress and Ratepayers Association and Coolum Business and Tourism,” she says. “We consider the town very close to our hearts and really wanted to create a legacy that we and the broader community could be proud of when developing the First Bay site. “While we’ve been approached by numerous developers over the years hoping

to build on the parcel of land, we’ve never felt the timing or the style of development proposed was quite right for the area, so we ultimately made the decision to develop it ourselves.” Mel says she and her husband always felt that there was an opportunity to create something special in Coolum Beach, so seized the opportunity to buy a block of land in Coolum Terrace in 1998. Since then, the couple has purchased four neighbouring blocks — two on David Low Way and two more on Coolum Terrace — giving them a collective 2876m² to build their architecturally designed, beachfront development.

NOBODY IN THE WORLD SELLS NOBODY IN THE WORLD SELLS MORE REAL ESTATE THAN RE/MAX.* MORE REAL ESTATE THAN RE/MAX.* BURNSIDE, 171 Burnside Road
Superannuation Nest Egg / Development Opportunity For those who can afford to landbank or buy into their superannuation this quiet North facing parcel has been identified as Future Urban and has recently had a feasibility study for a subdivision plan containing 29 allotments. The adjoining property has received approval to be subdivided and, as part of that process, town sewerage must be brought through this property in consultation with the owner. Up until recently, this property was known as Nambour Nursery. Laid out over 11 acres with picturesque waterways that provide atmosphere and irrigation. The property will suit tree changes and investors alike. Apart from receiving rental income from the two existing homes (one four bedroom, one two bedroom), the former, easy to run, nursery has the potential to re-commence trade and expand to include a cafe and retail sales outlet.

Surf this weekend will be small with best conditions Saturday. Your backup options are Caloundra Music festival – TICK. Or watching grand finals – TICK. If you are desperate, get in the car and head south. Rewards favour the brave. Me? I am off to Caloundra Music festival to see the Ukulele Death Squad. I figure anyone calls themselves that, they must be good. Stay tuned. Next event on WSL is France. This is like Wurtulla on steroids when it pumps. I think this could suit Julian, given his grounding at Coolum. Catch ya!

JUNIOR X-WORD 1
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
Harmonious partnerships are highlighted as the full moon, Venus and Mars rev up relationships. If you combine diplomacy with dynamism (and Ram charm with an Aries sense of adventure) then you’ll sail through challenges and taste sweet success.
Courtesy of the full moon and Saturn, you’re not in the mood to mix and mingle. So keep a low profile this week as you relax, recharge and self-nurture. But secrets from the past could boomerang back, as some old karma catches up with you.
This week the full moon focus is on friendships. How to nurture them, keep them … and then let them go if you have outgrown them. You’ll find mutual interests are essential to long-term friendships. Attached twins – stop being superficial!
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
Are you making the most of your mind? With Venus and Mars activating your communication zone, expand your thinking for bold ideas and creative concepts. It’s also a good week to increase your public profile or complete a professional project;.
The full moon activates your adventure zone. So it’s the perfect time to escape somewhere special. With Mars and Venus linking up in your money zone, don’t let fleeting whims and luxury fever get in the way of long-term financial planning.
Venus and Mars link up in your sign so it’s a terrific time for romance, relationships, socialising. But the big lesson to learn is how to diversify and delegate. And expect some dramatic developments as the full moon stimulates your sex and money zone.
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
Expect some relationship rumbles, as the full moon stimulates partnership zones. Look for love with an amorous Aries or an adventurous Aquarius. If you are attached, now is the time to stand up for what you believe in. Your proactive partner could take the reins.
You have strong likes and dislikes and you don’t do things by halves. Especially when there’s a full moon! You love to call the shots, but you’ll find another ‘c’ word – cooperation – will get you a lot further this week, with less tantrums and tears.
The full moon falls in your drama zone so expect a week full of extremes – everything from flamboyance to arguments. A feisty friend may try to push your buttons. So try to keep your composure, and don’t give them the satisfaction of a response!
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
The Sun’s in your career zone, which boosts your ambitions. You’re keen to get ahead but don’t trample over others! Aim to get the balance right between your personal and professional lives. Romance should be coupled with responsibility.
Venus is visiting your ‘money-fromothers’ zone which often coincides with financial luck. But – with Saturn squaring Venus – any gains could be gobbled up by burgeoning bills and increasing expenses. Plan accordingly, and don’t fritter good fortune away.
With Venus and Mars pairing up in your partnership zone, you’ll feel more motivated to sort out relationship problems than at other times. And you have a good chance of success. Especially if you are proactive and are prepared to compromise.

THE LAST WORD
CAN’T FIND A VEDDER MAN Richard O’Leary can’t forget the time he got some Pearl Jam lyrics wrong on a date.
’m mad for a good mondegreen. A what? You know when you are singing the lyrics of a song with all your heart only to find out later that you don’t have all the words quite right – that’s a mondegreen. I’ll give you an example. Your mum has a few wines and starts shushing everyone because an Elton John song starts playing, and she belts out, “Hold me closer, Tony Danza” instead of “Hold me closer, tiny dancer”. Or when your mate is jumping around the living room and giving Pearl Jam’s Jeremy everything he’s got and nailing it until he mistakenly says, “Jeremy’s smokin’ crack today” instead of “Jeremy spoke in class today”. Pearl Jam provided my most embarrassing mondegreen – it was about 20 years ago and I was

“I blame Eddie Vedder’s enunciation, but I still shudder when I hear that song” walking out of one of the band’s gigs in Sydney with a young woman I was trying to impress and I said, “I love that Vedder Man song. She looked crestfallen as she explained to me the song is Better Man. I blame Eddie Vedder’s enunciation, but I still shudder when I hear that song. But not every mondegreen is for the worse. I’m sure you all know the saying: “Sing like no one is listening. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching, and live like it’s heaven on earth.” Most people attribute that to American educator William Purkey, but in fact it’s merely a
mondegreen of the 1987 song Come from the Heart, written by Susanna Clark and Richard Leigh. “You’ve got to sing like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ll never get hurt. You’ve got to dance like nobody’s watchin’. It’s gotta come from the heart if you want it to work.” I think Purkey’s version is punchier, which brings me to my newfound belief that another line should be added following the decision by one of France’s most celebrated chefs last week to walk away from his coveted three Michelin stars. The Michelin Red Guide is the oldest European restaurant reference guide, and it’s rating of a restaurant can make or break a business – three stars is the highest possible score. Sebastien Bras says he’s sick of worrying about every dish potentially being assessed by anonymous food judges. He just wants to go back to preparing beautiful food because it makes him happy. Or to put it another way, he wants to “Cook for the pure pleasure of it.” You misheard it here first. firstname.lastname@example.org
Could Your Brain Do With A Boost? Did you know...
New solid scientific evidence suggests that adjusting the spine changes the way the pre-frontal cortex of the brain is processing information by almost 20%.
Research shows chiropractic changes brain function by almost 20%*
The pre-frontal cortex is responsible for behaviour, goal directed tasks, decision making, memory and attention, intelligence, processing of pain and emotional response to it, autonomic function, motor control, eye movements and spatial awareness.
