uriosity is a strong human trait. Perhaps this is why the Open House global movement has been such a success story. Launched in London in 1992, the worldwide network now incorporates more than 30 cities across five continents. The concept is simple – it gives people the chance to view properties they normally wouldn’t have the chance to see. The aim is to encourage the wider community to engage in architecture and smarter thinking about improved city design. Now, the Coast has been added to the Open House list with Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Shire Council and the Australian Institute of Architects Sunshine Coast Committee joining together to bring the initiative to the community. The inaugural event doubles as a celebration for the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast and highlights the change of design in the past 50 years. The event kicks off this weekend with a free panel discussion between our region’s newest and most experienced architects. Among those speaking is John Mainwaring, a man who has helped shape the face of the region. You can read more about John’s thoughts on design, along with style experts Alisa and Lysandra Fraser, in this week’s cover story on page eight. We also have travel, local news and property to round out your week. Happy reading!

THE BRIGHT SIDE Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Since July 2013 I have lived in Montville. My five-acre property is on the border of Palmwoods, Hunchy and Montville. So I enjoy the best of all three villages as well as having the Coast as my outlook. First job? The Princess Alexandra Hospital laundry. My best friend from school and I started work there with her mum. I’m pleased to say that she was my best friend then and still is after all these years. What are you currently working on? I am working to build our Beyond Brilliant Foundation. We have been involved in so much positive growth in the past year that we now need to take the next step of growth. My intention is that within five years we will build a medical centre to provide a research facility, education and respite suites along with trial clinics. Your family includes… My two dogs Barklee and Baylee at home with me. I have a sister and brother in Gympie and I’m surrounded by wonderful friends that spread across the world.
Sunshine Coast philanthropist and social networker Kerry Phairs spent her first 50-plus years travelling the world learning from different cultures about what it is that makes individuals unique. For the past two years she has been working in the area of brain cancer to support those affected by brain cancer and raise awareness of the disease. She is now helping others understand how the brain drives our emotions.
If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? I love the Sunshine Coast the way it is. So much hasn’t changed yet it is growing with the times. Best day in your life? The day after I married Mark. He said to me, “I wish we had have got married earlier because I love being married to you; it just feels great.” Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? The day I was standing on a cruise ship in the middle of the Indian Ocean. At 5am I received a shore-to-ship phone call to tell me my big brother had died. I vowed that very day I would make every single day of my life matter.
“Don’t waste time and energy worrying what others thinks of you; it’s not your business”
First car? My bright orange Datsun 180B with blue pinstripe, mag wheels, sports steering wheel and roof racks for my surf ski. I had to eventually trade it in because bits were falling off it from rust.
us kids surfing. We’d have to come back every half-hour or so to check in and to reapply coconut oil to our mums’ backs.
Favourite book? A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford. In 1987 I had a knee reconstruction, which required a long rehabilitation. My aunt gave me the book and it triggered a spark within me. What are you reading now? The Chocolate Tin by Fiona McIntosh. Best advice you’ve been given? Always have a dollar or two in your pocket. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Sitting at the top of Alexandra Headland. I sit up there and look out remembering the great holidays we had as kids. Mum and her girlfriends would be sunbaking,
What achievement are you most proud of? Being with my mum and my husband when they each passed away. I made sure they passed with dignity at home surrounded with love.
You are happiest when? I’m with family and friends enjoying laughs, cuddles, good food, good drink and making memories.
What frustrates you the most? Unkind people – I don’t see the sense in it. I know the world cannot be 100 per cent peaceful but I do know the slightest bit of kindness can make a world of difference to someone. How do you deal with your frustrations? Mmmm, I mostly walk away until I can tackle it logically. Sometimes when no one is around I’ll scream and rant, especially if it’s the mower not starting. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? Don’t waste time and energy worrying what others thinks of you; it’s not your business. Set your goals and do all you can to achieve them. Believe in yourself. Tea or coffee? Tea in the morning and late afternoon, coffee at 10am and 3pm. NRL or AFL? NRL. What is AFL?

OPENING OUR MINDS TO NEW HOME DESIGN Interest in property design and architecture has soared in recent years, launching the careers of stylists such as Alisa and Lysandra Fraser. The obsession has spread to our region, which is gearing up for the inaugural Sunshine Coast Open House. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
n an industry traditionally dominated by men, Alisa and Lysandra Fraser continue to turn heads. When these two walk into a room, they own it. Often, in more ways than one. The stylish identical twins, who traded in life on the police force for a career in property, are among the nation’s most successful interior designers and renovators. They have collected more than $1 million from their two stints on reality television series The Block, first appearing on the program in 2013. Today, they have a successful interior design business and, with their latest purchase, they hope to add property developers to their list of accomplishments. “We have designed a magnificent, bespoke, multi-storey residence that is going to push design and renovation boundaries,’’ Lysandra tells My Weekly Preview. “We are genuinely very excited by this project and can’t wait to share our journey. This project is one that is close to our hearts, already in the planning stages we are giving it our all. [There have been] many late nights and lots of coffee. “The finishes and level of detail, as well as our design execution, will make this a very unique property. Think high ceilings, natural light, combined with a spacious and opulent feel that is contemporary yet timeless and sensitive to the historical qualities of the existing build.” In the short time since they swapped their badges for blueprints, the Adelaide-based duo have witnessed tremendous growth in Australia’s property design industry. “Over the past 10 years we’ve seen an increase of European influence in design, both in materiality but also functionality, in other words the materials we use and the ways in which we choose to use our spaces,’’ Alisa explains. “Our homes are our centre of gravity, the spaces where we relax and grow in. “Home entertainment is big on the agenda and it’s the number one requirement in almost every design brief we work on. “A move away from large homes means we’ve had to become much cleverer with how we design our spaces, with a big emphasis on functionality and organisation. This will continue and it’s exciting to see because it means boundaries will be pushed in order to
achieve more, and create homes that are spatially efficient, sustainable, yet highly aesthetic.’’ The duo believes this trend will resonate on the Sunshine Coast – a place they love to holiday with family. “The coastal living theme is characterised by key materials such as rustic timbers, raw fabrics and natural accents. It’s the style of design that is not saturated and has an air of easy living and something that people tend to gravitate towards,’’ Lysandra says. When Alisa and Lysandra first came to the attention of the nation, the interest in renovation, design and architecture was escalating in popularity. And, it’s an interest that has continued to grow. It’s estimated that 8.4 million of the country’s 13.6 million homeowners undertook a renovation project last year. This figure jumped 57 per cent from 2013. There are 10 million dwellings in Australia and according to research company IBISWorld, the national architectural services industry has performed comfortably during the past five years. The 2017 Architectural Services in Australia market report shows that industry revenue is expected to reach $5.8 billion by 2018. Currently, there are almost 40,000 people employed in the industry. This interest in design and architecture is one of the driving forces behind the inaugural Sunshine Coast Open House (SCOH). The event will be held on October 21, giving people the opportunity to view 30 of the region’s most intriguing buildings including the Caloundra Lighthouse, the heritage-listed Maleny Lodge and private homes including Tent House by Sparks Architects and Robinson Architects’ Avonlea. The event is a global movement. In Melbourne it attracts around 100,000 visits annually and it is hoped the local version will attract a solid following. SCOH will kick off with a panel discussion on Saturday, October 14. The forum will focus on how architecture has changed during the past 50 years and how it will evolve. Speakers will include architects John Mainwaring, Lindsay Clare, Ian Dimond, David Teeland, Dan Sparks and John Robertson. Award-winning architect John Mainwaring hopes SCOH will bring recognition to Australian architecture. As the founder of JMA Architects (now

Multi-award winning architect Dan Sparks is the man behind the now famous Tent House. This Noosa holiday home has featured in various magazines around the globe. The young architect will be one of six professionals speaking at the SCOH discussion panel this weekend. MWP caught up with Dan to talk about his passion and the future of design.
Tent House is the work of Coast architect Dan Sparks and pushes design boundaries called Hollindale Mainwaring Architects) John is somewhat of a Sunshine Coast icon. He has offices in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast as well as a series of satellite offices, thanks to digital advances. He is a modest man, and yet one of the creators of projects such as the 2000 makeover of Brisbane’s CBD mall, Veridian Noosa Residences and USC’s library. Raised on the Gold Coast and graduating from UQ in 1972, John was attracted to our region’s environment and “free space”. Since then, the “Sunshine Coast flavour” has evolved, he says. “The Sunshine Coast was originally a recreational place for people and that led people to have their own philosophies… to have a spirit or sense of place. There is such incredible natural beauty here. I think this translated into the early architecture. [People] needed a functional house. Room for the fishing rods and a community room for a sleepout for the kids with flywire, no glass.” John says a love for an indoor-outdoor relationship that originally stemmed from coastal veranda houses has continued. “Houses on the Sunshine Coast have become status symbols… we’re moving into another phase with that. I think that will change. There will be more masterplanned communities rather than suburban sprawl. We did the low cost affordable housing at Bells Reach. It’s bringing beautifully designed attached houses. Stockland is clever now with these things. Instead of having the big mansions fronting on to the park, they bring
the affordable homes into the park to continue to activate it.” Another design the Coast will move towards is shophouses. Hollindale Mainwaring Architects are working on a project at North Lakes and hope the concept will take off at Aura. “Shophouses is a big passion of mine. These shophouses are flexible houses. In other words, we have different quantums of living or commercial space depending what stage you are at in your living pattern. Lots of housing options and financial options. That’s where we see the future of affordable housing.” John admits there is some market resistance to shophouses, but he believes that with the changing demographic of the family unit, the design will grow in popularity. “I think the paradigm is definitely changing. People are more urban conscious. We encourage younger people to share common space rather than conquer and nail down the Hills Hoist dream. Globalism is at odds with regionalism. Change is inevitable.”
THE EVENT The Open House Panel Discussion is a free ticketed event. It’s on Saturday, October 14 from 3pm at The Majestic Cinema, Nambour. Sunshine Coast Open House is on Saturday, October 21. Visit sunshinecoastopenhouse.com.au. My Weekly Preview is a proud supporter of the council-funded event.
You have travelled extensively. How has this influenced your work? My travels mid-degree were an incredible opportunity for me to experience first hand historical and modern buildings. Importantly, it was also an opportunity to experience myriad global cultures, particularly with respect to the way different cultures’ buildings respond to their climates and through their buildings, how people engage with the environment and each other.
How has it changed locally? I feel that the Sunshine Coast has always had something of an experimental approach to its architecture, but one which has always been deeply founded in a desire to understand and evolve an appropriate architectural response to our region’s climate and natural environment. We are no longer dealing with the idyllic notion of bush and beach holiday homes and villages. The Sunshine Coast is rapidly becoming a city and the challenge for the architects, planners, designers, developers and politicians of our region is to ensure that the reasons why we all love living here so much isn’t lost forever in the process. I have never been a big fan of the concept of design styles. What is of far more interest to me is the fundamentals of what makes a home liveable and appropriate for its time and place and in that regard we need to understand, respect and respond to our regions ‘genius loci’, our spirit of place. We are incredibly fortunate that our climate allows for a lifestyle that is as much outdoors as in.
THE TENT HOUSE Why did you base your firm on the Coast? The lifestyle, the environment, the people and the opportunity to evolve a lineage of quality architectural practice. What are you currently working on? Six Sunshine Coast houses at various stages of design and construction, a warehouse apartment in Teneriffe, a very unique house for a boat builder in Brisbane, a series of luxury accommodation ‘Tree Pods’ for a hotelier in Ahmedabad, India and ‘G-pod’– a globally transportable building system. How has architecture evolved globally? I feel that the increase in the use of social media platforms to showcase global architecture is creating, like so many aspects of global culture, something of a melting pot of ideas and inspiration. Architects throughout the world are all dealing with similar problems and through the internet and the evolution of digital platforms we have the ability to learn from each other.
Dan Sparks shares his thoughts… The Tent House is situated in a forest clearing on the edge of a pocket of remnant rainforest. The brief called for a four-bedroom family home that would allow the owners to celebrate a special site and our beautiful benign climate. I felt that a key requirement for the design was the need for the roof form to soar. The design evolved quickly and after confirming with our wonderful and brave clients that they loved to camp, we presented our proposal. The design is a modern pavilion (the eski) under a souring translucent tensile membrane structure (the tent). The pavilion has a series of glazed walls that slide away into pockets and automated roofs that slide open. The result is a living environment that could adapt to the seasons and when the weather allows, to be transformed into a living platform under a tent, in a rainforest. Tent House will be open to the public during Open House.

ITâ€™S A FETE, TIME TO CELEBRATE
CONCERT IN HONOUR OF MENTAL HEALTH WEEK Ten years on from the award-winning television series that captured the hearts of a nation, Choir of Hard Knocks and School of Hard Knocks founding artistic director, Dr Jonathon Welch (pictured), is heading to the Sunshine Coast for the first time and has recruited an army of voices to form the inaugural Absolutely Everybody Sunshine Coast Choir, a project choir of community singers. Their Hand in Hand concert will be staged to celebrate Mental Health Week 2017. The concert is on October 15 at 2pm at The Events Centre, Caloundra. Tickets are available at theeventscentre.com.au.
Fuelled by the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital and its associated health precinct, the population of the Wurtulla to Bundilla area is expected to nearly double in the next 25 years. The Kawana Chamber of Commerceâ€™s Ripple Effect project, funded by RDA Sunshine Coast and the Sunshine Coast Council, estimates the Kawana Health Project can create more than 16,300 jobs, with 6280 in health care and social assistance, and thousands more in retail, education and training, repairs and maintenance, accommodation and food service, and public administration and safety.

Staff and Maleny Soldiers Memorial Hospital Auxiliary members will host a fete to celebrate 30 years since the hospital was opened at its current location. The hospital was originally built as a memorial to those who took part in World War 1 and was officially opened as a hospital in October 1920. Acting director of nursing Glennis McAlpine says the fete is an opportunity to raise funds for the Hospital Auxiliary. The fete will feature food stalls, entertainment, a Malenyâ€™s Got Talent competition, games and activities, health services displays and a competition for all those born in Maleny Hospital called Back to Maleny â€“ Born in Maleny. The fete is on October 14 from 11am to 4pm at the hospital in Bean Street, Maleny. Contact 5420 5025 to register for either of the competitions.
TIGERS TO RETURN TO THE COAST It appears the Sunshine Coastâ€™s ideal weather conditions and excellent sport and training facilities are one of the keys to winning a premiership title. Just ask the Richmond Tigers (AFL), Melbourne Storm (NRL), Sunshine Coast Lightning (Suncorp Super Netball) and New Zealandâ€™s Southern Steel (ANZ Premiership netball) who all held their pre-season training camps in the region and went on to win national competitions in 2017. The Tigers loved it so much at the start of this season that theyâ€™ve already booked in for a return visit to kick off 2018.
STUDENTS INSPIRE NEW ART AWARD Sunshine Coast Grammar School students have inspired the inception of a prestigious art award this year for primary school students. This award has been donated in memory of local Australian artist Oswald Tilney, a man of great artistic talent. Tilney passed away on May 4, 2016, aged 99 years. In October last year, Tilneyâ€™s youngest sister, Nada Fisher, attended her first Sunshine Coast Grammar School Art Show and was so impressed by the passion, talent and manners shown by students, she decided to create the Oswald Tilney Award, a perpetual prize to honour her brother. The 2017 Grammar Art Show will showcase the Inaugural award recipient, along with many other creative masterpieces, and will recognise the growing talent in primary school. The grand opening will take place at 6.30pm on October 26 in the Grammar Hall, and run until 12pm on October 28.

GOLF NATIONALS TO COME TO THE COAST Champion golfer Josie Ryan is making her third tilt at the National Senior Women’s Amateur Championship. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
017 Queensland Women’s Senior Champion Josie Ryan is preparing to take on the nation’s best female golfers at the National Senior Women’s Amateur Championship at the Maroochy River Golf Club later this month. The Headland Golf Club player has taken out the national title twice before and has taken the top position in the state five times. Now, she is poised for another tilt at the championship, which runs from October 23 to 27. “I missed out on making the Australian team to head over to New Zealand last year,”Ryan laments, but the 65-year-old’s stellar year on the green has placed her in good stead to take on the likes of New South Wales’ Kim Burke and Victorian Helen Pascoe. Ryan says the 100 competitors will be up against the notorious winds at the par 73 Maroochy River Golf Club, which is only in its second year of operation and has already managed to secure the prestigious event with the help of sponsor Sunshine Coast Lasersight. “Maroochy River is a different style of golf course to most of the ones here in this area and it requires a number of different

Josie Ryan in action on the green golf shots to play,” she says. “Depending if wind gets up, the wind can be very difficult out there and can change the shot of a hole by two clubs either with the wind or against it.” Having played golf for more than 30
years, Ryan says she didn’t start to play seriously until she was in her thirties. Since hitting the senior ranks, Ryan has been a consistent competitor and one state champions will be wary of when stepping onto the green on October 23.
Ryan says she is proud to be part of a large contingent of senior golfers, with 57 per cent of the country’s players in the senior category. “Here in Queensland, there are about 7000, and nationally there are 45,000 senior golfers,” she says. “The nationals are always highly competitive, as only the top four progress to represent Australia on a tour in New Zealand, and I want to be one of them again this year.” For more information on how you can catch the best female golfers in the country, visit golf.org.au and look for the National Senior Women’s Amateur Championship in the calendar of events.

CAUSING A SCENE Award-winning TV producer Livia Hanich has settled into a low-key life in Doonan, but she can’t quite leave Hollywood behind. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
IMAGE: JAN STRANDSTROM
uring 25 years living in Los Angeles, award-winning TV producer Livia Hanich worked with the likes of Aaron Spelling, Darren Star and Steven Spielberg, and now she’s bringing her knowledge and experience to a grassroots level through the Sunshine Coast Screen Collective. Born and raised in Sydney, Hanich began her career in the mid-1980s working on the science show Beyond 2000 before moving to LA, where she landed a job producing the US version of the show, Beyond Tomorrow. “I was 27 and I wanted to explore a bigger pond,” Hanich says. She certainly got what she wanted. Her career from there included an internship with Henry Winkler’s company Fair Dinkum Productions, which led to a job as a post producer on global hit shows Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place. “I thought, oh my God, I’m coming off a factual reality show that changes people’s lives and I’m going to work on a teenage drama series, but I had no clue Beverly Hills would be such a huge and successful show. I really enjoyed it; it was fresh material. From there I was asked to go onto Melrose Place and I stayed there for the next six years. As a post producer, Hanich is responsible
Livia Hanich (far left) with the rest of the Sunshine Coast Screen Collective Anita Freed, Roland West, Matt Inglis, Nina Shadforth, Lou Clark & Bill Missett for overseeing and managing the schedule and budget and working on the entire production from the editorial side through to finishing the project, colour correction, sound mixing, sound design, working with the actors for the dialogue replacement, the music, interacting with composers, and then delivering the finished product. “It’s fabulous, when I fell into post production I really found my calling,” she
says. “I love it so much. It really speaks to a variety of different aspects of me – the creative, logistical part of me, schedules, budgets and at the same time having a hand in the creative aspects.” After the fun of teen drama, Hanich enjoyed sinking her teeth back into factual programming with a marine biology show for Village Roadshow, followed by a series of documentaries and then the logistically
challenging Temptation Island, a reality show where she was based in Honduras co-ordinating TV crews from five countries. She then jumped back into dramatic long-form TV with a Barry Sonnenfeld (The Addams Family, Men in Black) comedy Notes from the Underbelly, followed by the critically acclaimed Pushing Daisies and sci-fi drama Terra Nova, produced by Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks TV. She also worked on the new version of the iconic science show Cosmos. For this she won a Producers Guild of America Award, a Peabody Award and was nominated for an Emmy. From there she worked on the TV remake of 12 Monkeys, and it was during this time that she and husband Bill Missett, a screen editor, decided they didn’t want to raise their teenage sons, Jake and Gage, in LA. When Hanich’s brother moved to Noosa from Sydney, it triggered a desire for a more relaxed, slower pace and they left the red carpets and glitzy Hollywood parties for sleepy Doonan, moving there in 2015. With her remarkable career pedigree, Hanich quickly found work with Brisbane company Hoodlum Entertainment and is post-producing an ABC drama, Harrow, to be launched in February. She’s also involved

with the first Australian original Netflix show, Tidelands, a sci-fi drama she’d love to see filmed partly on the Sunshine Coast. “It begins shooting in March next year and it would be a massive coup to be able to bring that up here,” she says. “Obviously there are logistical challenges, but it would be a massive boon for the region.” Hanich is an ambassador for the Sunshine Coast Council’s 20-year Arts Plan and is the president and chair of the Sunshine Coast Screen Collective, a group of like-minded creatives who formed out of a gathering held by the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance. “Bill and I landed here and were drawn into conversations about developing more of a screen industry in the region,” Hanich says. “In July this year we formed as a not-for-profit and named it the Sunshine Coast Screen Collective with the mission statement to nurture and develop and be an advocate for the local screen industry. It can cross so many different platforms; everything from online content, gaming content, through to traditional forms of webisodes, television and hopefully in time – because it has
incredible locations – to see it as another region outside the Gold Coat for film entertainment. There’s a lot of creative talent here with unique voices and we want to identify resources to help tell those stories. “We’re reaching out to anybody – writers, producers, directors, crew, cinematographers, art designers, graphic designers. They all come together in being a part of realising an end product. “Bill has been in the industry as long as I have and is an experienced editor. We are feeling so excited because we’re finding ourselves in our group, forming this screen collective and what we can bring to the region. It has so much potential. It’s exciting to see the Sunshine Coast Council has a real drive to support and nurture innovation and creativity. “I come very humble and excited about what experience Bill and I can bring to the table, how we can help inspire and motivate young voices and new voices. I’ve always enjoyed being part of seeing people realise their potential and dreams.”
“It’s fabulous, when I fell into post production I really found my calling. I love it”

OUR 50TH YEAR
SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES Once the highlight of the week’s entertainment, the old picture theatres have disappeared on the cutting room floor, writes Dot Whittington.
Cotton Tree’s Beach Theatre and the Star in Maroochydore. Remember the hessian seats?
or more than three decades around the middle of the 20th century, most of the major towns on the Sunshine Coast had a picture theatre as a vibrant part of the community. It was not only a venue to see the “talkies” but a meeting place for dances, dinners, Anzac Day ceremonies and community gatherings of all kinds. The pictureshow man came to the country towns where the memorial hall or school of arts was turned into a cinema for the night. Screenings would be advertised for Coolum, Eumundi and Palmwoods in the District Talkies columns. The old theatres reached their peak in the years leading up to World War II but remained popular during the 1950s and ’60s until the advent of the drive-in theatre sounded their demise.
In Maroochydore, the first Star Theatre opened on Beach Road in December 1923. Walter Potter replaced it with a much finer hardwood and fibro building that was officially opened on October 12, 1935. It had a 15 foot stage and seating for 250. Hailed as the best of its kind on the North Coast, it was said to introduce a new note in design and appearance and the special sounding qualities of the theatre “ensured first-class entertainment”. In August 1954, a cinemascope screen was officially opened, one of only three outside the state capitals. From 1983-1997 the building was a home improvement centre and by January 1998 it was gone. At Cotton Tree, Maurice ‘Nugget’ Evans, established the Jazzland dance hall and a picture hall, at the corner of King Street and the Esplanade in 1923. On August 15, 1932,
the Beach Theatre and Cotton Tree store burnt down but the adjoining dance hall, although scorched, was saved by a bucket brigade. The new Beach Theatre opened in 1936, but by 1970, it too was gone. The Vogue Theatre in Currie Street, Nambour opened in March 1949. The last films were screened in 1976 when the building was converted to the family entertainment centre, Maranatha House. It became retail space in 1980 and the days of cinema in the sugar town were over until the arthouse theatre opened at the new civic centre a decade later. Mooloolaba had the Pacific Theatre on the corner of Brisbane Road and the Esplanade from the 1930s. It was also the hub of the local community. In May 1945,a successful Victory-Day dance was held in the Pacific Theatre. The Peninsular apartments are now on the site. In Caloundra, the Amusu Theatre on the corner of Bulcock Street and Knox Avenue, was renamed The Strand in 1937. It was demolished in February 1979 and a new shopping complex with cinemas also named The Strand, opened in October 1980. Moffat Beach also had a theatre, The Loch, which opened in December 1956. The large timber-framed fibro building had
seating for 350. It was demolished in 2004 and in July 2013 Moffat Beach Townhouses were erected on the site. The Majestic Theatre in Pomona was built as a multi-function hall in 1921. Silent films were screened until 1931. In Tewantin, Lionel Donovan opened the Mayfair Picture Theatre in Poinciana Avenue. It screened three times a week and during the 1930s was also used for a variety of community functions. August 18, 1967, was the beginning of the end for the old picture theatres. The first drive-in theatre opened at Maroochydore turnoff with capacity for 350 cars. In December 1971, Caloundra drive-in opened at Caloundra Road. It closed in the 1980s and in 1996, the site was redeveloped as the Village Green retirement complex. Maroochydore drive-in opened in Maud Street in 1971 but the site was housing by the end of the 1980s. It was the end of an era.
The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast was celebrated on August 1, 2017. If you have any historical photos or stories email editorial@ myweeklypreview.com.au.

TRAVEL rice paddies in perfect parallels. Pangaloi, or ‘uncle’, points out the different plants and seeds the local Dusun people use for food. There are salad leaves, jungle ferns, wild ginger, cocoa, pineapple – it’s no wonder Dusun means ‘farmer’ in the local dialect. The rainforest talks back to us as we pass through. I bump a mimosa pudica, a ‘shy lady’, and watch as its leaves fold inward and droop. It re-opens 15 minutes later, but by this stage we have moved on. A rare cloud forms at the top of Kinabalu Mountain, near the village of Tambatuon A waterfall in Borneo rainforest
IT’S TIME TO DISCOVER MALAYSIAN BORNEO Add this piece of paradise to your holiday hit list. By Simone Ziaziaris, AAP.
any Australian travellers are quick to jump on a flight to Thailand and Bali, while Malaysia often gets overlooked. It’s baffling. Malaysian Borneo is home to skyscraper-tall jungles, mist-shrouded mountains, tropical coastlines, and some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife.
22 My Weekly Preview | October 13, 2017
Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of the state of Sabah, is the perfect place to start, with its evening-lit markets, modern boardwalks and long-stretched beaches. But while it’s tempting to lounge around Sabah’s clear, blue water, experiencing the country’s incredible culture is a must. Here’s how to spend your time in Malaysian Borneo.
STAY IN TAMBATUON VILLAGE There is something special about strangers opening the doors of their homes and inviting you to experience their culture. In Tambatuon village, roughly two hours outside Sabah’s capital at the base of Mount Kinabalu, the locals are pros at welcoming foreigners with open arms. During our homestay we swim in the ice-cold river and wander our way through the town. In the distance, we hear kids giggling while they kick a ball on a cement soccer field. The village of brightly painted wooden homes and bamboo huts is surrounded by
DELVE INTO THE SUNGAI KINABATANGAN JUNGLE In the day, the jungle glows with promise. We see elephant footsteps smudged in the soft mud and local hornbills soaring in the sky. A small passenger vessel takes us across the Sungai Kinabatangan, the longest river in Sabah spanning 560 kilometres. Visitors have travelled from afar to explore this jungle, which is now protected by the government from the development of palm oil plantations. It hides pygmy elephants, the proboscis monkey, orangutans and so much more. At night, the jungle is mystical and you rely not on what you can see, but what you can hear and feel. James, a local guide, warns us to keep our hands close and not to touch anything. A brush of a certain insect or plant can leave you itching for
9/10/2017 1:48:43 PM
TRAVEL days, he warns. It is hard to tell at night whether the twisty and curly shadows are snakes or branches. I feel as if I have popped my earphones in and hit play on Apple’s rainforest soundtrack. The sound is unworldly and I struggle to make out which insect or animal is talking to us in the night. Their voices create layers and layers of different melodies that echo through the jungle.
GLAMP WITH BABY TURTLES ON PULAU LIBARAN Only 45 minutes from the mainland, Pulau Libaran island, is a peaceful getaway from the city. On the boat ride over, our tour guide Roxy tells us we will be camping underneath the stars and immediately I’m thinking cold showers, cramped tents and sleeping bags on thin ground mats. But as we arrive, local wildlife warden Harun takes me to my ‘tent’, which is plunked right on the edge of the beach. As he zips open the doors I breathe a sigh of relief. A lush, king-size single bed and a fan await me. We are glamping underneath the stars tonight. As the sun begins to set, Harun invites us to the nearby turtle hatchery, a local initiative to help rescue threatened turtles. Minutes later, the unimaginable happens. The ground trembles slightly and the first

Your money questions answered
with Michael Rowland
We have just ﬁnished paying off our mortgage and we are wondering what the best use of our new found surplus would be? We’ve read about negative gearing but are worried about the risks of borrowing large amounts of money again. (L&S 4551) The key here is to make the most effective use of your cash ﬂow. Borrowing or going into debt for investments isn’t really the problem or where people come unstuck, it is the level of debt that can be a problem. Depending on your age and retirement goals super should be a ﬁrst consideration before borrowing. With limits being reduced recently you may be able to direct a reasonable amount of pre-tax monies to super via salary sacriﬁce. This will likely be your most tax effective strategy. If this is not appropriate, or you have been able to do that and still have some spare cash ﬂow, you could consider borrowing to invest. To reduce risk consider only borrowing what you can afford to pay yourselves, without having to rely on the earnings from the investment. This can have two beneﬁts; ﬁrstly, reinvesting the investment will achieve the beneﬁts of compounding; and secondly, if the income from the investment reduces for a short period of time you won’t need to sell as you wouldn’t be relying on that income to meet the cost of debt. With interest rates so low it is likely that there won’t be much beneﬁt from a tax point of view so be sure to focus on the quality of the asset you are purchasing. You should also consider diversifying across many assets and asset classes to
reduce risk. Lastly, taking on debt can increase risk so taking stock of your life insurance position is equally important. If you become sick or injured it would be ideal to have sufﬁcient cover in place so that the strategy could continue to run for its intended time frame. My elderly father is getting to the stage where we have been advised that it is time to start thinking about placing him into an Aged Care Facility. What are the main things we should be preparing for in relation to his ﬁnances? (B&D 4558) Aged care can be a very emotional and stressful time. Not only do you have the care aspects to consider but you also must navigate the ﬁnancial aspects of a move as well. Entry contributions and ongoing fees will apply and depending on the facility an Extra Services fee may also be applicable. A visit to www.myagedcare.gov.au would be a good ﬁrst step. There is a great deal of information here that can help you to understand the various aspects and terminology of the aged care system. If we assume that you have found a facility that you are comfortable with the next step is likely to work out how you are going to fund the entry costs and also ensuring that your father has sufﬁcient cash ﬂow to cover the ongoing costs of care and other incidental costs that will continue. There are a number of ﬁnancial strategies that can be employed so seeking advice would be a wise step.

GOING ABROAD – HOME FIRES FADE
he latest reporting season for corporate earnings has wrapped up with an uneventful outcome overall. Profit rebounds in the major miners and energy producers flattered what was otherwise sluggish earnings momentum in the rest of the market. Meanwhile, earnings beats only just outnumbered misses, and company guidance commentary took on a negative tone at the micro level but was positive at the broader macro level. Looking at the broader picture, the global macroeconomic outlook remains positive. Unlike the Australian reporting season, June-quarter earnings in the US, Europe and Japan were ahead of analyst expectations for revenue and margin. The breadth of companies beating expectations was also notable.
In addition, the latest indicators of business activity, such as the global PMI, augur well for global economic growth. The international outlook has led our global research counterparts to raise growth forecasts this year for a number of regions, including the euro zone, China and the US, with global growth in 2017 now on track for its fastest annual expansion in more than six years. More impressively, this view also assumes a modest slowdown in the second half of the year as the US Federal Reserve starts to shrink its $US4.5 trillion balance sheet (beginning in October) and markets prepare for a likely rise in interest rates in December (currently priced at a 73 per cent probability post the September meeting where the US central bank stood pat). Our economists, however, have cut their growth forecast for Australia in 2017 to 2.3 per cent from three per cent, and their 2018 forecast to 2.7 per cent from 3.2 per cent, due mainly to coal trade disruptions in the wake of Cyclone Debbie and a slower ramp-up of LNG capacity. Sluggish consumer confidence (as opposed to buoyant business confidence) is also weighing on consumer spending.

NOT-SO SAFE HANDS New research from soap company Palmolive has revealed that Queenslanders have poor hand hygiene. The national study revealed that around a third of Queenslanders fail to wash their hands after sneezing, coughing or blowing their noses, thus risking the spread of germs among their family, friends and co-workers. Also of concern was that the study showed 44 per cent of Queenslanders fail to wash their hands after handling money. Perhaps it’s time to get scrubbing?
IN THE spotlight
THE KETO DIET
The newest food fad to make its way into our world is the keto diet. So, what exactly is it? In its basic form, it’s a high-fat, lowcarb, moderate-protein diet that works to put the body in a ketosis state. This process metabolises fat instead of carbs to provide energy. The experts say that when done correctly, the keto diet can improve insulin and blood-sugar levels, aid in weight loss, regenerate healthy muscles, increase energy and reduce acne. Pass us the avocado!
BACK IN BALANCE There are some simple nutritional and lifestyle changes you can make to manage stress, writes Jodi Chapman.
chieving balance between work and life while managing relationships, career, study and finances can be quite stressful, sometimes reducing your mood and tolerance for the important people in your life. When you carry too much responsibility, and it gets overwhelming, what do you do to control the chaos? Instead of looking outwardly at the people around you, try
“Give yourself a mood and energy boost with high-dose nutrients” looking inward at what you have control over to make simple changes. It’s all about planning, energy and mental clarity. Give yourself a mood and energy boost with high-dose nutrients that may have been used up through these intense
and stressful times. Vitamin C, a great-quality vitamin B complex, magnesium and zinc are a good range of basic nutrients required for building brain chemicals. These basics boost dopamine and will provide energy and motivation. Low dopamine is common in high-stress situations. Take the time to plan a healthy diet and get yourself organised to have food ready. This will keep your healthy diet right on track, and prevent you from snacking – the more sugar you eat during stress, the worse you feel the following day. Take time out for something you love to do, such as seeing friends, get out into the sun, get some exercise to break up the stressful cycle, and bring you some joy. Don’t wait another day to enjoy life. Life is a journey, so make each day count.

I was looking for a matte lipstick with good staying power but as my lips tend to be dry, most matte lipsticks don’t work for me. This one from Stila is perfect. The colour is matte and saturated, yet the formula is really creamy and hydrating, almost like a lip balm but without shine. It comes in 12 shades. I chose Framboise, a pretty berryy shade that you can mix with lip balm for a hint of colour or layer for a more dramatic evening d, $31 from look. Highly recommended, Mecca Maxima.

AIRING YOUR DIRTY LAUNDRY
AWARDS ARE ABOUT TEAM EFFORT
Sami Muirhead says new information on how often we should be washing our sheets and towels is unrealistic in a house full of kids.
Rebecca Grisman says nominating yourself or your business for an award is not egotistical – it’s a chance to pat yourself and your team on the back.
K we have known each other for a little while now, so it is time to get intimate. How often do you wash your towels, sheets and knickers? A survey came out this week that says we should all be washing our towels every two days or every three uses. I find that ridiculous. Before I had kids, I had a set day on the weekend I would wash all my sheets and towels and start the week with a fresh mind and fresh linen. I would play awesome reggae and light candles and faff about the house feeling like Martha Stewart. My house was actually clean because I did not have an army of small hands trashing it. Back then I’d think I was tired if I stayed up nightclubbing until 2am and then slept in until 11am. The young and beautiful people at work whinge to me they are soooo tired from staying up playing computer games or from binge watching some cool show on Netflix. It was clearly a rough morning for them as they chewed slowly on their organic muesli and enjoyed an entire cup of hot chai latte after a yoga workout. Remember those days? I always smile and say, “That is no good you poor tired thing! Have a coffee and hang in there.” But in my head, I am imagining slapping them. Because for seven years I have been limping by on cold half cups of coffee and four or five hours of sleep thanks to sharing my bed with little terrorists.
A good night’s sleep is my ultimate fantasy. And I also have one about Ryan Gosling taking his shirt off to rescue a puppy while we are playing a game of tennis together. Anyway, these days the frequency of changing my sheets or towel is a bit more hit and miss. I do at least two loads of washing every day, but washing the towels and sheets is considered a luxury. Unless they have vomit, or worse, on them, which they frequently do. And you know what? That does not even bother me anymore. The survey showed the average man aged between 18 and 30 washed his pyjamas every 13 days, while women waited for 17 days. I change my pyjamas daily. My sleeves are tissues for little noses. My top is a drool zone for when the three-year-old drifts off to sleep on me. My bottoms lie in my bed that is frequently covered in wee. Am I sharing too much? The fact that shocked me was that a quarter of all men change their underwear every two days. What the heck? Fungus could be growing in your dacks after 48 hours, lads. These experts claim we should wash our towels every two days to stop bacteria from our dead skin cells from thriving. They say we should wash our pyjamas and sheets every week. And wash our undies every day. I just hope we are still friends after my confession session.

28 My Weekly Preview | October 13, 2017
is the season for awards – there are several industry awards in progress now at regional, state and national levels, for arenas from housing construction to tourism and business leadership. Over time, I’ve been involved in awards from several standpoints, as a nominee, finalist, winner or a judge and every time it’s a learning opportunity. I love hearing from people who have experienced successes or challenges and taken the confronting step of putting their story forward for others to critique against their peers. I have found it is easier for someone outside of your team to see and spruik your qualities and strengths, so it can help to have someone external nominate you, draft or proofread your entry for you. I continually find the same argument from people offered the chance of the spotlight when they are nominated for an award – they do not want to be tall poppies or do not feel they have earned the attention. Many business owners or directors dislike self-nominating for awards, fearing it will seem egotistical to share their story and their achievements. For example, a favourite person of mine who has given countless hours of time to our local community for nearly 40 years has repeatedly turned down a nomination for Australian of the Year. It’s a little bit heartbreaking for his family, who have also sacrificed much to support his passion for
volunteering and would dearly love to see him accept the recognition. That’s ultimately the point of entering any award – it acknowledges the customer or community love and team effort behind every success. Why shouldn’t you be in the running? Why don’t you – and they – deserve to be thanked? My company has been nominated for gongs several times and I think it’s the greatest compliment there is for the work we do. We’ve shared in getting shiny things and framed certificates for great projects, community involvement, collaboration and management, including some pretty serious international marketing awards that even flew my team to Las Vegas to bring home silver and bronze for a young driver safety campaign in schools. In my experience, there is always something to gain from entering an award – the team bonding alone that comes from reviewing all you have done and how much you make a difference is priceless. I would recommend every business and community leader take the time to think about what you do that’s award worthy. Don’t be shy to aim high. The things you and your team are doing well are worthy of recognition. Your nomination, becoming a finalist, or winning your category are all equally worth celebrating and sharing. Awards are ultimately a shared win for your team, your credibility and all of the ‘family’ who helped you get there.

FROM THE MAYOR
With a state election imminent, now is the time for our local members and candidates to stand up and tell us what they are prepared to fight for when it comes to public transport infrastructure and services. We need to hear real commitments. The Sunshine Coast’s public transport system – which is the responsibility of the State Government – is woeful and congestion results as more people have no other choice than to use their private motor vehicle. I see the evidence every day as I travel around our Sunshine Coast. When you combine our inadequate public transport network with the lack of onsite parking provided at State Government assets such as state schools at Meridan, Brightwater, Woombye and Chevallum – to name a few – and other buildings such as Nambour hospital and the Mike Ahern Building in First Avenue, Maroochydore, you have a significant problem that affects Coast families and workers every day. Successive state governments have spent too little on our region for too long. Our 300,000 residents in Australia’s fifth largest local government area deserve better.

FUNDING FOR THE COMMUNITY If you’re part of a not-for-profit community group needing a helping hand to fund a project, event or activity, make sure you apply for council’s Minor Community Grants Program. Applications for Minor Community Grants of up to $2000 close on November 6. The grants are a great way for all sorts of community groups to obtain funding to help with their smaller, but important, projects. Community groups can apply for funding for one-off projects through one of seven categories: Community Development; Community Facilities; Cultural Development; Cultural Heritage; Economic Development; Sport, Recreation and Healthy Living; and Community Events. For more information, to discuss your project or for assistance with an application, contact a grants officer on 5420 8616, email grants@sunshinecoast. qld.gov.au or visit council’s website. Council also offers an External Funding Database for funding opportunities.
NEW SKATE FACILITIES OPEN The major upgrade to the skate park at Alexandra Headland is now open and being enjoyed by keen skaters, BMX riders and scooter riders of all ages and ability levels. The new-look park, next door to the surf club, has a split-level advanced bowl, mini bowl and stair set among the key design features, as well as a stage that will also provide opportunities for events such as competitions, demonstrations and learn-to-skate workshops. The final concept design was developed by council and specialist skate park designers following two rounds of community consultation. The Alex upgrade is one of three skate projects completed by council this year. A new skate park at Mooloolah Valley and
improvements to Coolum Skate Park have provided our skater population with enhanced locations to practice their kickflips, ollies and 360s. Improvements at Coolum included extending the skate area with new street elements, better drainage in the skate bowl, new spectator seating and improved lighting. The new skate ramp at Mooloolah was a partnership between council and the Mooloolah Valley Community Association. It provides local children with a venue for socialising, skateboarding and scooter activities, all in the safety of the Recreation Ground precinct. A full list of our skate parks and their facilities are listed on council’s website in the Beaches and Parks Directory.

2017 – THE WINNERS
WORDS: Candice Holznagel Interior designers, home stylists and DIY-ers rejoice when predictions for the year’s hottest trends emerge. There were plenty of styles in addition to the fabulous Hygge. And we can’t wait to see what stays and what disappears as we move into 2018.
MINIMILISATION Put simply, minimalism is about living comfortably in a peaceful, uncluttered environment. In regards to styling, it takes restraint and discipline to achieve the right look. The design has a neutral palette and incorporates pared-back furniture, timber, black and greenery. Prediction: As the global movement towards simplicity continues to keep growing, we expect this design to follow suit.
ON-TREND: Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) If you haven’t heard all the hype surrounding the latest life and style concept, you are missing out. Coming out of Scandinavia, Hygge is about highlighting gratitude, relaxation and the simple things in life. Designers worldwide are taking these traits and adapting them into home styling. If you are ready to wrap yourself in a cosy haven, then read on.
CREATE WITH COLOUR
Haymes Paints’ Blended Neutrals palette incorporates nine pastel colours that perfectly blend contemporary with traditional. Siesta, Overcast (pictured) and Feather Grey will work in any Hygge-styled home.
MILLENIAL PINK In 2017, we have moved away from the traditional rose and modern blush towards a new shade of pink. The millennial shade dominated the celebrated Milan Design Week, which sets the trends for the year to come. Prediction: Who are we to argue with the experts? If it’s good enough for Milan, it’s good enough for us. You’ll be seeing more pink interiors in 2018.
SEASONAL For the past couple of years, we’ve been told to update our interiors with each new trend that emerges. In 2017, we have been slaves to fashion and tempted by inexpensive products – outing the old and bringing in the new. Prediction: There is change coming. Designers predict a move away from disposable styling and a steadfast movement towards longevity. Invest in solid, quality pieces of furniture, artwork and decor that you can add to as the years go by.
METALLICS As we moved from 2016 into 2017, there was a solid movement away from copper towards brass and rose gold. And while metallic will still play a role in interior design, it will be different yet again. Prediction: Rose gold will give way to silver. We will also add metallic to our homes in a different way – think wallpaper and textured paint.

REST AND RELAX Finding the right couch is an important decision. After all, it is the centrepiece of your living space. Take some time to research fabrics, shapes and comfort.

CHOOSING A SOFA IS A PERSONAL DECISION. The best way to ensure that you are choosing the best sofa for you is to give it a good test, and the best way to test it is to actually sit on it. About 10 – 15 minutes of sitting as you would at home should make your decision more informed and will give you a true indication of whether or not the particular sofa would suit you.
As the main focal point of your living room, your sofa holds the power to change the entire look and feel of the space. Fabric sofas are a popular choice because of their versatility and affordability but it pays to think about the practicalities of choosing fabric before making your purchase, so you can sit comfortably for years to come. Better yet, they are affordable, cosy and comfortable year round.
Designer furniture brand West Coast Collection™ has arrived in Australia and the team at Plush couldn’t be more excited. This brand will be exclusive to Plush and to celebrate, we’re offering a new collection saving of 50 per cent off the entire range of sofas, modular lounges, recliners and more when you purchase two or more items of furniture! Buyers can relax knowing that all Plush sofas are hand-crafted for comfort, built to last and backed by an exclusive 10 Year Peace of Mind Warranty®.

SPRINGING TO LIFE
inally relief has arrived, with most areas of the Coast receiving soaking rain in the first week of October. Lawns and gardens are already starting to rejuvenate, and it has made planting new plants a lot easier. With the warmer nights and longer days, expect to be seeing lots of new plants springing to life. In the garden centre this month you should be seeing the summer flowers and vegetables available, and now is the perfect time to get them started. In the flower patch keep an eye out for alyssum, calendula, angelonia, petunia, salvia, vinca and zinnia. For the edible garden it’s time to start on cucumber, eggplant, corn, capsicum, chilli, pumpkin, rosella and zucchini. Our lawns will start to spring to life with the warmer season, so here are the top five tips to grow a great-looking lawn: 1) Aerate – We all want our lawns to grow thick and fast, so make sure there is plenty of space for those new runners and roots to develop. By aerating, you improve the quality of the soil, and allow healthy new growth to develop. It only needs to be an annual task, so make sure to do it well. If it hasn’t happened to your lawn, in a little while longer it might be time to de-thatch. Remove all the old, brown leaves from underneath with a leaf rake, to help avoid a spongy lawn or brown patches. 2) Top dress – This is as much about keeping the lawn level and even as it is about promoting new growth. Flat, even turf is easier to mow, retains moisture better and generally grows more
Marjorie Van Roy is a horticulturist and the director of Manawee Garden Centre. She is passionate about providing advice to customers ranging from the home gardener to the developer. Her aim is to create a garden or a space where people can gain pleasure and enjoyment from it. Having lived both in the southern states and in Queensland, Van Roy has extensive knowledge of both tropical and coolclimate plants and their requirements. Van Roy has a personal interest and love of the French country style, using extensive hedging and pleached trees from magnolias to fruit trees.
even – creating a lush turf. Make sure you top dress using something appropriate for your soil type. If you have a heavy or clay soil, make sure to use a sand-based product, however, if your soil is naturally very dry or sandy, top dress using a compost-based product. 3) Fertilise – Often this can be carried out when top dressing to save on time. With the warm weather, our lawns will really start to draw up nutrition, so make sure there is plenty to go around. The answer is not to always pick the product which produces the fastest growth or the most greening. Your individual soil type will make a difference, so consider using a product that is a complete fertiliser, containing both nitrogen as well as other secondary and trace elements. The lawn will still turn green, but it will also last longer between feeds and will generally become more disease resistant. 4) Treat for weeds – Get on top of this now. Don’t wait until the lawn is over-run with clover, or you can’t make it from one side of the yard to
the other because of bindi. It is worth remembering that most weed species grow well in lawns and soils that are generally not healthy. A strong lawn will be more than capable of choking out most problems. Check for common issues such as incorrect pH, poor drainage or friability, or pests and disease, which may weaken the lawn and allow weeds to take hold. If you need to spray to get on top of problems, be sure you know what kind of turf you should have and ensure the product you select is safe on this lawn type. 5) Water – A little goes a long way, and although it is best left to mother nature to soak the earth, if you want your lawn to be the envy of the street, this is the best starting point. The best water is applied in the morning, and soaks down at least 100 millimetres into the soil. To sustain a healthy lawn in even the hottest conditions a good soak once a week should be adequate.
PRODUCT OF THE MONTH:
The pleasures gained from a well-maintained garden cannot be understated and the garden becomes an asset to any home.
Happitunia ‘Honey’ is an easy-to-grow, tough perennial for sunny garden beds, pots or hanging baskets. The flower starts as a honey yellow, and as it ages the flowers adopt shades of sunset. Huge numbers of flowers are borne at any time and flowering goes on for several months. It enjoys a well-drained spot and regular feeding every two months will ensure continued flowering. This plant represents a continuation of improved genetics and breeding to produce a longer-lived petunia, with improved heat tolerance and disease resistance. The plant will spread approximately 60 to 70 centimetres in diameter and can be pruned regularly to maintain shape.

The One Author: John Marrs Publisher: Penguin Randomhouse RRP: $32.99 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane What would you do if there was a new DNA test that could match you with your geneticallyperfect other half?

ARE YOU CLAIMING THESE UNEXPECTED DEPRECIABLE ASSETS?
here are several things around the home that property investors may not realise they can claim tax deductions for. BMT Tax Depreciation has compiled a list of its top five items that may surprise you. BMT CEO Bradley Beer says bathroom accessories are modest additions to an investment property that can be easily overlooked but investors may be able to claim around $125 in deductions for things such as toilet brush holders, shower caddies and soap holders. “As these assets cost under $300, the ATO allows investors to claim their full value as an immediate deduction in the first full financial year,” he says. “Investors with holiday rental properties may need to purchase assets so guests are equipped to enjoy their stay, such as kitchen cutlery or crockery sets. If these items cost an investor $285, they can claim their full value in the first financial year of deductions.” Outdoor assets can also attract valuable deductions as well, with artificial grass or turf matting considered a removable plant and equipment asset. “If an investor outlays $960 to install it then they may be able to claim a $180 deduction in the first financial year and $841 cumulatively over the first five years,” Beer says. “An investor may also be able to claim a first-year deduction of $1270 for a home automation system that cost $6350 and $4269 in cumulative deductions over the first five years. “Some investors may install ‘green’ assets to enhance
their property’s energy efficiency, and in doing so, may also save money on energy costs for their tenants. If an investor chooses to add a solar powered generating system that costs $5250, then they may attract a first-year deduction of $525, and $2150 in cumulative deductions over the first five years.” According to the ATO, deductions fall into two categories – capital works allowance for the structural elements of a property such as walls, floors and ceilings, and plant and equipment deductions for a property’s fixtures and fittings.

The prediction for the Quiksilver Pro in France is six to eight foot waves with light variable winds. Working out who might win is like picking a broken nose – you know one is there but you can’t work out how to pick! As for the common people who live in paradise, we have onshore devil winds with increased swell. So, don’t get excited. Well, you can get excited but that would be weird. Might good to watch the WSL and cheer on Julian. Whatever you do, have fun and be kind or funny.

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
If you blurt out the first thing on your mind on Wednesday or Thursday, then you’ll spend the rest of the week patching up the problems you’ve created. So strive to be more strategic; think before you speak; and avoid raising sensitive subjects.
This week, with Mercury and Jupiter joining forces in your relationship zone, have the confidence to say what’s really on your mind. Other people may not agree with your comments, but they will respect you for being open, honest and authentic.
Thursday’s new moon lights up your creativity zone, which highlights self-expression and entertainment. Friendships are favoured, as you share fun activities together. But tread carefully with an unpredictable parent or a tearaway teenager.
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
Motivation is high on Monday, when you’re ready to tackle a project that’s been on the backburner. It’s also time to get talking with a frustrated family member, as the new moon encourages you to view things from their perspective.
It’s time for listless lions to get your mojo back as Saturn gives you an energy boost. Making lucky connections via social media is favoured, and vigorous physical exercise will also put you in a positive (and frisky) frame of mind.
Mars is marching through your sign, so it’s time to be bold and brave, as you tackle challenges with extra vim and vigour. Caring for loved ones will leave you with a warm inner glow. Thursday’s new moon motivates you to be more financially savvy.
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
This week’s new moon is the perfect time for a makeover or a wardrobe revamp. Your motto is from birthday great, legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt: “Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.”
Wednesday is fabulous for business, social and educational activities when Mercury and Jupiter link up in Scorpio. But your usual routine is likely to get shaken and stirred this week, especially at work. A health issue could demand to be addressed.
The Mercury/Jupiter connection increases your natural sparkle. So aim to be generous rather than garrulous. Be inspired by Sagittarian writer George Eliot: “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.”
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Monday is marvellous for powering through projects. But unpredictable Uranus stirs up your career and home zones on Thursday. So prepare for work worries, domestic dramas or family fiascos. Your dry sense of humour will see you through!
It’s time to create your preferred future and follow your destiny. Don’t be dismayed by temporary setbacks and stressful delays! The universe is testing your determination to stick to your desired course and keep the dream alive.
Thursday night’s new moon lights up your lust zone, so you can look forward to a rendezvous with your sweetheart. Mercury and Jupiter activate your travel zone, so some flirtatious communication with a sexy foreigner is likely for some singles.
Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD
FAST ROAD TO SPIRITUAL RENEWAL Richard O’Leary tries the age old tradition of fasting in the hope of receiving a great revelation.
his is probably the first and only time you will see Gandhi and Richard O’Leary in the same sentence, but the Indian independence leader and I finally have something in common – we have both fasted. Sure, Gandhi undertook 17 fasts during his quest to free his country from British rule, the longest lasting 21 days, and I’m only 20 hours into my first – and my refusal to take food for a day is spurred by nothing more than curiosity – but hey, I’ll take any association I can get with the great man. I became interested in fasting after reading an article that claimed it provides physical and spiritual renewal. To be honest, it appeared to be a pretty drastic step for someone who has never even attempted the 40-hour famine, but what the heck, how can you put a price on enlightenment? Now this is nothing new, people have been fasting since time immemorial –
although to be fair, not always through choice. Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician who discovered that the square of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, was an early advocate of its virtues. Who am I to argue with a bloke who has a thereom named after him? Fasting has played an important part in every major religion (with the exception of Zoroastrianism which bans the practice), with it linked to self-control and selfrevelation. Judaism has Yom Kippur, Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan, while Roman Catholics traditionally fasted intermittently during the 40 days of Lent – the period of time Jesus is said to have endured the temptations of Satan in the desert. But a closer connection with God is not the only positive of the increasing number of followers of fasting.
Some studies have suggested fasting may lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and help lose weight. But a quick Google search reveals other experts say it can cause heartburn, trigger headaches and actually put on the kilos. For me it has been an interesting test of my willpower and capacity to take on a challenge. For most of the day I haven’t been hungry, although I have found my mind racing at different times, no doubt facilitated by caffeine on an empty stomach. So far there’s been no life-changing discovery about myself, but it has been interesting to observe how much of my eating pattern is determined by habit rather than any real desire to put food in my mouth. But with 12 hours to go, I’m still hopeful that some secret may yet be revealed to me. Deep down I’m hoping it’s something that may see a theorem named after me. firstname.lastname@example.org
