FROM THE EDITOR
round one million Australians tuned in night after night to watch Sasha Mielczarek attempt to win the heart of Sam Frost in the 2015 debut season of The Bachelorette. Now, he is putting his identity and popularity to good use by promoting the importance of men’s health. Sasha is a Movember ambassador and as the month of moustaches kicked off, we caught up with the 31-year-old to talk about prostate cancer education and mental health awareness. Sasha, a construction manager, is a man’s man and yet he’s willing to break down communication barriers and encourage other guys to speak out. You can read his story on page 10. Those readers who posses the travel bug will enjoy our six-page My travel section this month. From a short getaway to Brisbane through to family escapes, hot deals and holidaying in Italy, there is something for everyone. It begins on page 32.

Meanwhile, our puzzles page is now located in the middle of the magazine and it will be revamped in coming weeks. Finally, the TV guide closes the publication on the last two pages.

EYE IN THE SKY Where do you live? Woody Point.
If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? The Sunshine Coast has developed a lot since growing up here back in the ’80s. Can we go back to then?
First job? Trainee announcer at 4SS (now Mix FM).
Best day in your life? The birth of my daughter.
What are you currently working on? Traffic reports. It’s mid-afternoon and I work split shifts, AM and PM for drivers heading to work and home again.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The day I nearly drowned in the surf and found out I needed open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve. That was 10 years ago this year.
Your family includes. . . Daughter Peyton and dog Benson. First car? Red Ford Escort with a sunroof and roof racks for the surfboard. Totally cool right?! Was a regular at Alexandra Headland and Maroochydore with that little beast. Favourite book? Not a huge reader but Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. What are you reading now? My Facebook feed. Keeps me going for hours.
BIO Dave Andrews works as a radio and television traffic reporter for the Australian Traffic Network and has just clocked up 10 years. He does traffic reports from the bright orange helicopter for Sunrise on Channel 7 and various radio stations in Queensland, including Hit 105 and Triple M. He went to school at Suncoast Christian College and worked in radio before he became ‘Chopper Dave’.
“If you tell the truth, it becomes part of your past. If you lie, it becomes part of your future”
Favourite song? After being in the radio industry since I was 15, it’s pretty hard to narrow it down to just one. September by Earth, Wind & Fire is close but after a quick scan through my Spotify faves folder, there are lots of songs by Pitbull, Jamiroquai, and The Whitlams and plenty of laidback, chilled house music. I’m a big fan of Australian music. Australian Crawl was the first band I saw live as a kid in Caloundra. Best advice you’ve been given? If you tell the truth, it becomes part of your past. If you lie, it becomes part of your future.
What achievement are you most proud of? Having lasted in the radio industry and doing what I love my whole life. You are happiest when? I’m awake, every day is a gift to be opened and enjoyed.
What frustrates you the most? Red lights, traffic congestion, slow cars in the fast lane. How do you deal with your frustrations? Spend more time in a helicopter than on the road. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? Have more fun, take more chances, think less about what people think. Tea or coffee? Green tea or chai latte.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Can’t beat a day in the hinterland, a morning at the markets or a trip to the beach. Also a visit to Dad’s at Bli Bli. Must get up there again soon and take him out on the paddleboard.
Mooloolaba... Livin’ the dream

ECOTOURISM LEADERSHIP FOR THE SUNSHINE COAST Coastal Discovery Trail
The beach and GLJLWDObGXQHV
Existing beach access
Existing development The lookout
YAROOMBA BEACH will be a place where the coast’s natural assets are nurtured and promoted to create Australia’s most significant ecotourism resort. Acclaimed ecotourism expert Tony Charters has said The Westin Coolum Resort & Spa and surrounding coastal village is the right plan to deliver the Sunshine Coast’s first Advanced Ecotourism and Climate Action Leader certified destination. Visitors and locals will be able to interact with and learn about the Coast’s environment and heritage along the Coastal Discovery Trail and within the Coastal Discovery Centre where
technology, art and play combine. Along the trail they will wind their way through the protected wallum vegetation to the beach. There they can look for animal tracks and witness the whale migration in Winter and Spring. Or take a tour to learn about Indigenous food and significant landmarks – after being inspired by the native food and sculpture gardens. If you want this investment in world standard ecotourism for the Sunshine Coast, show your support online. Evan Aldridge, Yaroomba Beach, Project Director

A GROWING CONCERN
Movember ambassadors are again reminding Australian men to stop shaving and start talking – to their GPs, their families and each other. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he Connoisseur, the Trucker, the Freestyler, and the Magnum – Sasha Mielczarek has sported one of these moustache styles every year since 2003. The 31-year-old construction manager has been a dedicated Mo Bro, raising funds for prostate cancer research and spreading awareness during Movember for 14 years, but it wasn’t until two years ago, when he was the one chosen by Sam Frost in the first season of Australia’s The Bachelorette, that he became a recognisable face. Mr Mielczarek says although he and Ms Frost have since parted ways, his profile and passion for supporting Movember led him to become an ambassador for the organisation in 2015, alongside former INXS member Kirk Pengilly, a man with an undeniably distinctive moustache. The reason for Mr Mielczarek’s tireless work for Movember is a personal one. His grandfather and father have both battled prostate cancer and he lost his great-uncle and, more recently, a dear friend to the disease. He says, “My grandfather still has complications from his surgery and my dad was only 47 when he had prostate cancer in 2010. My Sasha Mielczarek friend, who I worked with for seven years, was only 57 years old and he suffered in silence. “The chances are that I will have it down the track, given it is hereditary. But I am so passionate about raising awareness because, unlike my friend, men don’t have to suffer in silence. More men die of prostate cancer than women do of breast cancer and it is largely due to it not being detected early enough.” Mr Mielczarek says he uses the visual cue of seeing men starting to sprout moustaches as a trigger to remember to book in for his annual health check. “Everyone thinks you have to go and get a finger up the bum, but it’s as simple as getting a PSA [prostate-specific antigen] blood test and if levels are not high, you won’t need to have the old-style examination done,” he says. “I use it as a time to get a full check-up done, but it’s not a huge deal and it could save your life. Prostate cancer is curable if you get onto it early enough.” Sunshine Coast consultant radiation
oncologist Dr Marcel Knesl says some of the early symptoms of prostate cancer include a change in urinary flow, waking frequently in the night to go to the toilet, and pelvic pain. Dr Knesl, who splits his time between the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the Radiation Oncology Centre in Maroochydore, says if anyone over the age of 40 experiences these symptoms, or has a family history of prostate cancer, he should visit his general practitioner and request a PSA test. “Results are measured with a Gleason score [GS] out of 10. If your first PSA has a score of well under one, your risk is very low and you won’t need another check for five years. But if it is over one, say around 1.5, you would repeat it in a year’s time to see if it is increasing,” he explains. “When you get to a GS of six, it is a slow-growing cancer with no required treatment and the patient will be placed on active surveillance. For a GS seven to 10, we recommend treatment and there are two options – prostatectomy or radiotherapy. Both procedures give you the exact same final outcome in terms of local control and overall survival, but have different side effects.” Dr Knesl says advances in technology mean men can now have a pelvic prostate MRI scan, which can identify a cancerous nodule in the prostate, much the same as a mammogram can detect cancer in breast tissue. “Patients whose prostate cancer is diagnosed early are completely cured of their cancer, or have it well controlled, and they should have a normal life expectancy,” he says. “We know that some of the best preventative actions to reduce risk of all cancers are regular exercise, maintaining a good BMI and eating a plant-based diet.” Although Movember’s roots are firmly planted in prostate cancer awareness, the organisation has now moved into the mental health space, encouraging men to open up to one another to reduce the prevalence of depression and high rates of suicide among Australian men. “Given that I work in the construction industry and three out of four suicides are men, for me, it’s all about getting men to open up and talk about things,” Mr Mielczarek says.
“The Unmute Campaign that was run by Movember is about getting blokes to get together, go fishing and chew the fat”

COVER STORY “The Unmute campaign that was run by Movember is about getting blokes to get together, go fishing and chew the fat, or jump in the car and talk sh**. “I’ve had my own mental health battles recently and I found I was promoting all this stuff, but wasn’t doing them myself.” With a strong physical presence, Mr Mielczarek looks like a stereotypical man’s man, but he says the media whirlwind that followed his every move after The Bachelorette hit him hard and was further compounded when things didn’t work out for him and Ms Frost. “The whole thing with them publishing rumours and spinning everything… I wasn’t dealing with it. I wasn’t talking about it and just tried to move on,” he says. “I had also lost my grandmother a year ago very suddenly. We were very close and she was a huge influence on my life. I had blocked this out until that point.” Mr Mielczarek says his mum didn’t believe his insistence that he was fine when she asked if something was wrong during a phone conversation. “She had a sense that something wasn’t right and drove down to meet me once I got home from the gym. Mum’s always been there for me and if I need to tell someone anything it would be Mum. I got emotional talking to her and it felt great getting it off
my chest. I began to feel like things were turning around,” he says. “This was only a small mental health journey for me, but it affected everything. Others suffer a lot more and still find it hard to reach out.” The move to change the mentality that men have to be strong and ‘suck it up’ or ‘drink a glass of concrete’ is one Mr Mielczarek says is slowly gaining traction. “Back in the day, there was a huge stigma around it, but in the job sites I work on, I am also open about supporting people in mental health,” he says. “I have done a MATES in Construction course to be a mental first aider to support them and help to patch them up if they need advice on what to do or where to go to seek help. “I run a site with 260 guys and I have created an environment where the majority of the guys are comfortable with approaching me and they are absolutely not ostracised for doing so. I can talk to them on their level and share my own struggles to show how we all go through things. “Everyone’s different though. Some people struggle for a bit and then they’re okay, but others suffer constantly. It can impact on your work, physical fitness, family life, and you can start to develop addictions to drugs and alcohol to mask the issue, because it becomes the only way to feel good about yourself.” Mr Mielczarek says woman can also support Movember by raising funds and awareness throughout the month. “A lady at my company had a great time drawing a moustache on her face or wearing a fake one every day of the month, so anyone can get involved,” he says. “We want to stop men from dying too young. Prostate cancer is curable and mental health is curable. We need to encourage the men in our lives to seek help for both their physical and mental health this Movember.”

• One in two Australian men has had a mental health problem at some point in his life. • Three out of four suicides are men. • An estimated 16,665 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017. • Prostate cancer will account for 12.5 per cent of male deaths from cancer this year. • In 2017, it is estimated that the risk of a male being diagnosed with prostate cancer by his 85th birthday will be one in seven.

Psychology Café clinical director Dr Robi Sonderegger says men by nature are problem solvers who are “not great fans of talking about their feelings”. “When there’s a problem a man cannot fix, there may be a ‘perceived’ failure or inadequacy on their part. These are not features men typically like to associate with their sense of self,” he says. “Character helps form a man’s identity, which is inherently tied in with his selfworth. If a man perceives he has a flaw in his character, his self-worth is potentially jeopardised. As such, men may be tempted to engage in ‘self-worth protection’.” This means they artificially prop up and protect what they think of themselves, but this is done at the expense of who they are.
“Not only do we not like to talk about our problems and therefore cover, mask or disguise them, we can tend to overcompensate in other areas of our life. As such, for many men, mental health problems can have stigma attached.” Dr Sonderegger says he established Mooloolaba’s Psychology Café, which features an informal coffee space, to lessen the stigma of going to see a clinical psychologist. “Seeing a psychologist is no different to getting advice from an accountant, architect, solicitor or sporting coach,” he says. “All of these professional and education services are focused on helping their clients succeed. Psychologists are life coaches who do the same – we equip and empower clients with life skills to help them not just survive, but to thrive.” Dr Sonderegger says when the mental and emotional challenges of daily life start to interfere with behaviour it is “time for a check-up from the neck up”. “If you have a mate who seems to be struggling, where thoughts and feelings are impacting their work and relationships, tell them it’s time to check in with the mind mechanic and get a service,” he says. “Every man regularly maintains and services his vehicle to not only help with optimal performance, but also to ensure its longevity. The same is true is seeking professional help. Recognise the red light on the dashboard and go do something about it. A mental tune-up goes a long way not just towards resolving problems, but helping life run a little more smoothly.”

WATCH FOR WILDLIFE DURING TRAUMA SEASON Wildlife is actively on the move across the region as we enter peak trauma season, which will continue until February. Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital vets are on high alert as native wildlife begin their search for a mate, a new suitable habitat or to simply venture away from their mothers for the first time, leaving them more vulnerable to injuries caused by coming into conflict with vehicles, people and urban places. As much as 30 per cent of the wildlife hospital admissions are for animals that are hit by cars. The second most common cause for admissions are attacks from domestic pets.
FULL MOON DANCE CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY On the next full moon, hundreds of groovers will gather in the Verrierdale Hall to celebrate their love of first-class live original music and foster a vibrant community spirit. It is something they have done for the past 30 years, and on November 4, the Full Moon Dance will be headlined by jazz/reggae act Kooii on their national tour, the Coast’s Darren Percival with his soul group Funkalotamus, NZ reggae band Paua and DJ Favourite Son mixing up the grooves in the outdoor garden area. The Full Moon Dance 30th celebrations are on at the hall at 460 Verrierdale Road. Tickets are $28.60 and available at oztix.com.au.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics has received almost 12 million survey forms for the voluntary same-sex marriage survey, which equates to around 75 per cent of voters. The Bureau has sent out forms to approximately 16 million eligible Australians to vote on whether same-sex couples should be allowed to marry in the $122-million survey. Postal forms must be received by 6pm on November 7 to be included in the count. The final results of the controversial survey will be announced on November 15.
ELECTION CALLED FOR NOVEMBER The next state election will be held on November 25. Although Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk previously indicated an election would not take place until 2018, the premier says the snap election will create “certainty” and “stability for business”. “Let’s not forget next year we have the Commonwealth Games here in Queensland, and I want all eyes focused on Queensland and what we can do. I think people want to focus on Christmas and go into the New Year ... and also I need my government continuing to deliver on our commitments.”
STARTUP WEEK SUPPORTS FUTURE BUSINESSES Sunshine Coast Startup Week will take place from November 11 to 17 and will include more than 20 free community events, more than 50 speakers, and over 1000 participants. Events include networking sessions, mentor hours, pitch demos, workshops and presentations spanning five concurrent programming tracks, Startup 101, Health & Wellbeing, Women in Business, Creative Industries and Blockchain. With many local co-working spaces also donating spaces to host workshops and sponsor free desk space, Sunshine Coast Startup Week is by community, for community. The majority of events are free, with only a handful of events attracting a fee of $20 or less to offset some expenses. For a full event list, visit sunshinecoaststartupweek.com.

CARLTON TO TRAIN ON THE SUNSHINE COAST Carlton is the latest club to announce the Coast as its AFL pre-season training venue in the hope of joining the last five premiership teams, who won after training in the region. Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray says it is great to have the Blues join Richmond, Western Bulldogs and Melbourne as the clubs confirmed for camps prior to the 2018 season. “Our region seems to have become a winning formula for professional football teams, with the last five AFL premiership winners all holding pre-season training camps here,” Cr O’Pray says.

SUNSHINE PLAZA’S NEW DIRECTION
The popular shopping destination has introduced paid parking. Words: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane
unshine Plaza has entered a bold new era of ticketless paid parking, but before you worry that your trips to the shops will become a more expensive exercise, consider this – more than 90 per cent of shoppers won’t pay a cent to park their cars. Long before the Smart Park system came online for all parking areas south of Cornmeal Creek, including Woolworths, Michael Manwaring Coles, behind Toys R Us and Rebel car parks, on November 1, Sunshine Plaza centre manager Michael Manwaring says they crunched the numbers to see how effective it would be. “We looked at customer’s shopping behaviour and the industry benchmarks that have been set in similar shopping centre car parks around the country and what we’ve found is the average customer stays here just shy of two hours, unless they are going to see a movie,” he says. “With the first three hours free, those who spend over $150 can have their parking validated and those who watch a movie can scan their movie ticket at the pay station, type in their rego and get their fourth hour free. It’s very simple.” Mr Manwaring says the decision was made to move towards paid parking to ensure customers were given the opportunity to access the best available parking bays. “A lot of local businesses used to have staff parking on site, so this will free up the bays,” he says. “The maximum anyone will pay is $20 a day and it is very back-end heavy. This is purely so we can deter long-term parking. For those who stay beyond three hours and don’t qualify for additional free parking, costs will start at just $2.” Smart Park comes as all six levels of the new 15-metretall Kmart car park was opened, providing more than 800 additional spaces. As part of construction of the new car park, 9200 tonnes of concrete was poured, and it took 13 months and more than 370,000 worker hours to build. The new car park, along with the existing car parks near the Woolworths and the Coles buildings, have been
upgraded with parking bay indicator technology, which provides drivers with clear visual indicators of which areas have available car parks. Mr Manwaring says the express ramp into the new Kmart car park, which comes off Amaroo Avenue and provides drivers with direct access to level two or the option to connect to the Myer car park, is a popular addition. While the car parks are moving ahead in leaps and bounds, progress on the construction of the new retail arm of the centre, which will include a David Jones and Big W, took a bit of a hit with the recent deluge of rain. Mr Manwaring says 314 millimetres of rain was recorded throughout October on the site, and “most of that came in two days”. With excavation works already completed, water pumps and a filtration system needed to be activated to treat water that had flooded the site before moving it into the stormwater drains. “There is a wet weather calendar built in [the construction timetable] so we have the processes to deal with that,” he says. “At the moment, we are laying floors and slabs for David Jones. The slab for Big W has already been done and the undercover car park underneath Big W has already been poured. While nothing new in the way of retail will be open for Christmas this year, we are aiming to open for Christmas next year.” When the centre’s $400 million redevelopment is complete, the Plaza will have 5000 car parks and will grow from 73,000 to more than 107,000 square metres.

he underperformance of the Australian equity market has been particularly noticeable of late, and stems from anxiety around earnings and the economy. Nevertheless, a slow and sustained grind into the 5800 to 6000 range for the S&P/ASX 200 is possible over the next 12 months, in our view. Since 2014, the Australian equity market has lagged global equities. One reason is lowered expectations around domestic economic activity. Australia’s annual GDP growth slowed to 1.8 per cent in 2Q17. This compares to three per cent in 1Q14 and the slowest pace since 3Q09. It also compares to US GDP growth, which has picked up from 1.7 per cent to 2.2 per cent since 1Q14. Further our forecasts of GDP growth for Australia have been downgraded from three per cent to 2.3 per cent for 2017, and 3.2 per cent to 2.7 per cent for 2018. The gap in economic performance between Australia and the rest of the world, therefore, seems to be narrowing. The other reason is the lack of consistency in company earnings. Even though earnings growth is expected in FY17 to FY19, the slowdown towards mid-single-digit earnings growth will mean it falls below the growth available offshore of about 10 per cent per annum in FY18 and FY19. Notwithstanding the dull backdrop for Australia, we think the market can go higher. However, we see it as a slow grind. This assumes earnings growth in Australia settles in the low single digits. It also assumes help from interest rates staying where they are, and the AUD declining towards the mid-70s. Our current sector preferences are integrated utilities, which we recommend accumulating. At the other end are the discretionary retailers, which we recommend lightening. We see integrated utilities benefiting from the tailwinds of higher electricity prices. While regulation is a potential risk, our view is that government-induced price suppression may deter further industry investment, and therefore only extends the reliability issues. In most cases, we think discretionary retailers may have seen a peak in earnings, with competition set to increase while consumer discretionary spending is being limited by low wage growth, household indebtedness and rising energy prices.

Daniel Morcombe’s legacy continues as his parents launch a new educational initiative. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ore than 1500 people wore red shirts in a show of solidarity to support the 13th annual Walk for Daniel last Friday and in a glimpse of what lies ahead for the future of the foundation, thousands more students from 2800 schools around the country tuned in to an online broadcast from their classrooms to watch Bruce and Denise Morcombe present the inaugural Australia’s Biggest Child Safety Lesson. The foundation was established in 2005, two years after Mr and Mrs Morcombe’s son Daniel was abducted and murdered. The foundation has become a lasting legacy to Daniel and now has two main aims – to educate children on how to stay safe in a physical and online environment, and to support young victims of crime. The new CEO of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, Holly Brennan, says while a large portion of the country is aware of Daniel’s story and actively participates in the Day for Daniel, the small but dedicated team of six part-time workers and the large contingent of volunteers continue to work year-round to increase the reach of the foundation’s important messages. The Morcombes have spent more than a
Denise and Bruce Morcombe have worked tirelessly to spread the child safety message decade travelling the country to deliver child safety lessons and now Ms Brennan, who has served on the foundation’s board for five years, has taken on the role to allow the Morcombes to enjoy time with their family. Ms Brennan says the foundation’s focus for the next 12 months will be on boosting resources for parents and caregivers to equip them with the right tools to open the lines of communication with children. “A lot of teachers and parents lack
confidence and sometimes feel uncomfortable having these conversations and we want these resources and, in the future, webinars to help them through this. “We don’t want out children to grow up with fear, but we need to structure the conversations calmly around positive actions the children can take to feel in control and we start with the message that their body belongs to them. “Child abuse has been viewed in a
shameful way in the past, but we are all learning that it’s okay to talk about child abuse and sexual abuse and we need to remind children that they won’t get in trouble if they tell someone that this has happened to them.” Ms Brennan says the stranger danger message is becoming less relevant as the majority of child abuse and child sexual abuse cases are linked to someone known to the child. “Children need to know ... they can reach out for help and if they are scared or worried, that someone will always be there for them to listen,” she says. With more than 356,000 Facebook followers, the strength of the social media presence of the foundation allows the team to communicate directly with the large contingent of families who have become the backbone of the foundation. “It is these people that allow us to exist. “The foundation can only operate thanks to the mums and dads funding our work, which is quite amazing,’’ Ms Brennan says.

LET THEM EAT CAKE
BEST DAY OF THE YEAR
Sami Muirhead loves a good birthday party and it wouldn’t be complete without an outrageously decadent cake from a famous cookbook.
Forget Christmas, Richard O’Leary’s favourite day of the year is the Melbourne Cup, and he hasn’t missed it in more than 40 years.
have ordered something online (again) that is potentially a family game-changer. It could make me Mum Of The Year. I may go from zero status to hero status when it comes to cooking for my tribe of beautiful children. I have ordered The Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book. Well played, me! The bible has recently been republished in its original glory, complete with the choo-choo train on the cover. most popular of all the styles. I am grateful this little gem from our childhood is back in our lives. The cake cookbook was first released in 1980 and today it sits in one million households around the country. We all have primal memories of what cake we had – or did not have – for our birthdays. My best friend Nicola had the Dolly Varden cake. Oh, how I coveted that cake. Nicola also had a Cabbage Patch kid and the entire Smurf collection. When I was about seven, everyone seemed to have the Old Lady In A Shoe cake. And of course, who could forget the beautiful butterfly or the Humpty Dumpty cake? Those days were simpler when it came to parties. We had cordial. We played red rover in our undies under the sprinkler and we had cake. And the cakes were not deconstructed, they were not croquembouche, they were not six tiers with lime infused macaroons and flowers on each level. They were big and bold and
full of colour and they looked homemade. But spoilt brat me never had the cake I truly wanted. My mum was too busy raising three children by herself. I do remember one year, Mum made me the Hickory Dickory Dock cake. I was so excited. We talked about it for weeks. But Mumsy could not find a chocolate lolly mouse to put on the cake, so she made one out of our prunes. Can you imagine my embarrassment and disappointment when I saw the rodent sitting on my cake made of gross prunes? But now I have the chance to relive my childhood and make all the classics for my kids. My kids’ parties have been welldocumented for how ridiculous they are. When my daughter turned one, I ordered 40 inflatable flamingos for the pool and we had a sea of pink flamingo feathers over the entire backyard. I have learned along the way. Life has become busier and these days, I love a good outsource. My middle boy is turning five and we are invading the Kawana Aquatic Centre to celebrate. I do not have to clean my house or worry about the toilet seat being left down. He wants a shark and scuba diving cake. And if the cake goes pear-shaped (there is a pretty good chance it will), well we can say it’s an exploding blue volcano. The kids will not actually care as long as there are heaps of cream and lollies and not a single prune.

e nearly called our eldest son Archer. My wife just liked the name, but for me it would have been the ultimate tip of the hat to my favourite event of the year, the Melbourne Cup. As it turned out, like many an entry in the race itself, the first horse called when the barriers open is not necessarily the name of the nag that crosses the line first. (At least I didn’t contemplate the first horse to win the Melbourne Cup after Archer’s two-in-a-row – that would have just been cruel).* I love the Cup, it’s my favourite day of the year. You can have your Christmases and birthdays and wedding anniversaries (that last date will mean you can bet your last dollar that my wife will actually read this column for the first time in a long while), but I will take the race that stops the nation every time. To give you some idea of my passion for the great handicap, I’ll tell you about ‘Bart’s Ten Commandments’. That’s the name of a newspaper article I have carried around with me for a decade or so, which details the secrets to training a winner of the Melbourne Cup according to one James Bartholomew (Bart) Cummings. I‘ve been lucky enough to have written columns and stories in a number of newspapers and magazines here and overseas – but I don’t carry clippings of them around with me – but ‘Bart’s Ten Commandments’ has stayed in whichever
bedside drawer I’ve had, for many a year. The chances of me ever being asked to train a horse in The Cup are about the same as me running in it – but that hasn’t stopped me from holding onto the sage advice from the bloke who won the race a dozen times. I’ve listened or watched every running of the 3200-metre event for more than four decades. In my teens, I could name every winner from 1861 onwards. When I lived in Dublin, I got my dad to
“In my teens, I could name every winner from 1861 onwards”
call me in the middle of the night to put the phone up to the radio so I could hear Media Puzzle win – and I’d backed it. I’ve only attended the event once – it was the year Might and Power led from go to whoa (although till this day I still think that Doriemus pipped him on the post – despite having backed him). This year, I’ll probably watch it at work with a few bets in my pocket, a lifetime of memories in my head, and a willingness to be wowed by another instalment of this remarkable race. *The winner of the third Melbourne Cup was a three-year-old colt called Banker.

Your money questions answered
with Michael Rowland
What is passive income and how do I “make money while I’m sleeping”? (B&T 4556) Generally speaking passive income is the income made from investments or activities that you are not materially involved in. Interest, rent, dividends or maybe proﬁts from a business you have invested in but don’t run on a day to day basis are good examples. Currently there are many ways to generate a passive income such as; trying to make money out of a hobby you may have; utilising social media tools such as You Tube or Instagram; or even making use of spare capacity through ideas such as Uber and Air BnB. Each of these though will require some sort of personal exertion and really are like a part time job. Traditional approaches will be with property, cash and shares. Each have their place and should be used for speciﬁc purposes, but the underlying theme is that they can all generate earnings that can either be reinvested or used for further wealth accumulation. Ideally cash investments would only be for short term needs, while property and shares would be longer term ideas. Both property and shares should also generate growth over the long term, but the income generation is the key. Consider using the equity in your home for further investment opportunities or putting a lazy cash investment to better use over the longer term. Ultimately it will come down to making that ﬁrst step. There are many ways to do this, but you should always be thinking about what is important to you ﬁrst. What are your goals and objectives, how much spare cash ﬂow do you have, and what is your tolerance to risk are all questions that should be explored. An experienced adviser can help you with this and get strategies together
to help build your passive income stream. With interest rates at record lows, where should I invest to make money “safely”? (M&S 4558) All around the developed world interest rates are at, or near, record lows so it makes investing safely, quite risky. Cash rates are so low now that your return, after allowing for inﬂation and tax, will barely be positive at all. This is a major risk to your wealth accumulation goals. To build wealth you need to focus on income and growth and only with those areas addressed will your investment strategy be safer. Don’t confuse volatility with risk. Property and shares can be volatile when looked at in shorter time frames but when viewed through the prism of the long term, volatility is much lower. Take shares for example. If you invested in shares for a six-month period to the end of July 2017 you had a 27% chance of negative returns. However, if you invested for a 7 year period to the end of July 2017 your chance of a negative return had dropped to zero.* Then comes our old friend “compounding”.

Captain Jan Becker addresses the audience at the USC Outstanding Alumni Awards
peaking to Captain Jan Becker is like getting a shot of positivity straight into a vein. A vibrant and funny woman, she is a powerhouse in both her work and family life. She was recently named the University of the Sunshine Coast’s (USC) Outstanding Alumnus for 2017, an award she said would help put the sad state of neonatal health in Tanzania on the map. A helicopter pilot, nurse, midwife and CEO of Marcoola company Becker Helicopters, the largest helicopter flight academy in the Southern Hemisphere, the Coolum mother of two volunteers in Tanzania four times a year, training midwives in neonatal resuscitation and delivering up to 100 babies a day. “Tanzania has the worst statistics for neonatal baby and mother survival in the world,” says Captain Becker. “The work is raw and it’s real and it’s happening on the same planet that we live on here.” Captain Becker graduated from USC in 2009 with a Bachelor of Nursing Science and recently embarked on a PhD at USC, looking at the ‘silent voices of the midwives’ of Sub-Saharan Africa – managing neonatal resuscitation and very early neonatal death. Not bad for someone who says they weren’t academic and failed at school, making her Outstanding Alumnus award all the more meaningful. “I always felt stupid at school, I never fitted in,” she says, adding that it was a culture shock to move to New Zealand in high school after having grown up in Singapore, where her father was involved in setting up a helicopter business which serviced the oil industry.
She and husband Mike, a helicopter pilot, were high school sweethearts. They moved to Australia in 1986 and 10 years later, launched Becker Helicopters. On the first day of business, it poured rain all day and Captain Becker was in labour with her second child. “I remember saying to Mike, ‘what’s plan B, what’s going to happen if this doesn’t work, we’ve bought a bloody helicopter, we’ve got no students, are you shi**ing me’? He said, ‘there is no plan B’. I remember thinking, oh my god, I love this guy. He told me later he was just as terrified.” Today, the company is a $20-million business with a fleet of 18 Bell 206 turbine helicopters and a fixed-wing Duchess aircraft that they use to provide 15,000 to 18,000 hours of pilot training a year to an annual cohort of about 120 students. It specialises in training pilots to fly using night vision goggles, which draws clients from around the world, including allied military forces. “It’s easy for people to see success, they see the awards; they’re brilliant things to have, but so is having a brilliant relationship. I’ve always said I could live in a bark hut with Mike, as long as our babies are with us. “When we first started the company up we had no money, we were sued, and we went from having equity to having no equity. There were dark, dark days. I even did feng shui on the office – I had this stupid pot plant that faced north. I thought we’d go broke in business before we were successful and we nearly did. But it’s no secret we worked out butts off and six years after writing the strategic plan, we signed a

PROFILE $30-million contract and that changed the business overnight.” While her daughters Michaela and Chase were young (they’re now 21 and 22), Captain Becker completed a Masters in Civil Aviation while they napped. “The Masters I did was gold,” she says. “It was an international course with students from all over the world and I did a thesis on night vision goggles, which is now the pinnacle of our success.” Captain Becker’s innovation and business leadership with Becker Helicopters have earned her numerous honours, including the Telstra Business Women’s Queensland Business Owner Award, the Telstra Australian Medium Business Award and the Queensland Premier’s Innovation Export Award. She sits on three boards, including the Helicopter Association International and the Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, and is also Chair of the Cherish Foundation. But no honour comes close to that of saving the life of a baby and she has now set up an NGO in Tanzania, Midwife Vision, to offer education, global community participation, professional support, and resources to midwives at Amana Referral Hospital in Dar es Salaam. “There are pockets of absolute happiness when you resuscitate a baby and it lives, and pockets of despair on the flip side,” she says. “I never imagined it would become this big, I never imagined we would start our own NGO. But it became evident that somebody has to be the pilot in command, to make things happen, and things don’t happen without money and the generosity of volunteers. “I love it, it’s completely different,” she says. “It’s a second home professionally. You just get in and roll your sleeves up. Mike is on the board in Tanzania and our daughter Chase comes with us. There’s so much to be done and we couldn’t do it without a team. We’re setting up a transfer business, a bit like the Uber model, to transport mothers to hospital and with that same van we can take equipment to and from the hospital. It will start slowly – it’s funded from here initially. “Mike came last year and said we could fix the electricity and the plumbing, they had running water for the first time in the labour ward, we got the theatre light fixed so they could do caesarean sections. “They try so hard over there but they’re strapped by manpower and money. Mike got into the labour ward and painted and got new equipment. It changed the face of everybody. Suddenly we saw hope instead of despair, we got the cleaners engaged, got them T-shirts and brand-new mops. “I think the thing that’s so important is it doesn’t matter how much we do, every little bit helps. If you put a plug in a sink with a dripping tap, eventually it fills up. It has taken us years to develop relationships. Most people don’t go back – they just do the swoop and run.

GET READY FOR
WE’VE GOT YOUR WINDOWS COVERED
Jan Becker with a newborn in Tanzania babies. Sometimes you just want people to say, you’re not invisible. I see you. We’re not here to change the world, we’re just here to do our bit.” Captain Becker is back in Tanzania this month, organising a documentary to be filmed over 10 weeks, tracking the progress they’re making. One of the touching stories that may make it onto our TV screens next year is one of Captain Becker’s many initiatives. She collects hand-knitted beanies from across Australia and New Zealand to take to the babies in Tanzania, to let the parents and babies know they’re not alone. “We’re getting 17 or 18 box loads at a time,” she says. “Sometimes retired people are at a loss as to how to make a difference. A nanny in Australia just wants to give them a little bit of love and then they become global citizens. They knit the most beautiful twin sets, booties and beanies, but no one here on the Sunshine Coast wants them, they just want to buy stuff from OshKosh. “An old man drove up the other day. His wife had died and she’d been a knitter. He said she’d want all the wool to go to the babies. It’s golden threads of connection. “You know the thing that’s so beautiful? We could not do what we do today without a successful business. We couldn’t finance the trips to Sub-Saharan Africa, couldn’t have set up the NGO over there. For us, it’s not enough to have money and choice, you’ve got to be able to do something beyond yourself. “Sometimes I think, why don’t we just grab a good book and go to Fiji for a week? I’m sure that time will come, but while you’re young and healthy, get out and get amongst it. We’re global citizens, we should be part of it. I don’t know about refugees or how to feed the homeless. I know how to deliver babies, fly helicopters and run a business.”

Thanks to the Buderim Wanderers, women’s soccer is set to get bigger and better on the Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he foundations laid four years ago to increase opportunities for female soccer players on the Sunshine Coast have paid off for the Buderim Wanderers Football Club. The club has been awarded a five-year National Premier League Women’s (NPLW) licence through Football Queensland for the first time, and from next year will join the competitive ranks of 14 other license holders across the state. This landmark move will provide an elite pathway for female footballers, who have seized the opportunity to trial for the newly formed Sunshine Coast Wanderers Football Club, which will take part in its inaugural season in 2018. Sunshine Coast Wanderers (SCW) NPLW general manager Stuart Collins says more than 100 women and girls have registered to trial for the new club’s under 13, under 15 and under 17 teams as well as the senior division to have a tilt at competing at the top level. Some hopefuls travelled from as far as Gladstone to trial, while others who have played for Brisbane clubs are aiming to secure spots in a team closer to home. Mr Collins says the teams will have a real shot at making a statement in their inaugural
season and many trialists have been inspired by how the Sunshine Coast Lightning team took out the Suncorp Super Netball series in their maiden year. “The Wanderers have developed a strong reputation, with the premier women’s team undefeated all of last season until they reached the finals of the Brisbane-based Elaine Watson Cup,” he says. “They were the Hyundai team of the year Australia-wide. The
fact that we had two women’s premier teams in the competition is pretty much unheard of, and we were premiers in the third division as well as the under 16s, with the under 12s grand final winners.” Mr Collins, who has been instrumental in establishing a quality female football program through the Buderim Wanderers with Jim Slater, says the club has fostered a productive environment that allows girls to progress through the ranks with quality instruction and a dedicated support team behind them. “A couple of years back, you were lucky to have the numbers to form a squad, but now we are attracting players from far and wide. “Now, we are reaping the rewards and entry into the NPLW is the next step in our evolution,’’ he says. The Buderim Wanderers began preparing their NPLW bid around 12 months ago and with the license granted in August, the club have launched the SCW to cater for the national premier league team. The club will also field men’s junior, youth and senior teams in the Football Queensland Premier League next year. Mr Collins says they anticipate the club will grow from a membership of 600 to closer to 1000. While this will put a strain on training
Is Mental Fatigue and Reduced Brain Function Impairing your Decision Making, Productivity and Relationships?
Difficulty concentrating or feeling fatigued as the day goes on? Do you suffer with broken sleep and waking unrefreshed? Walking into a room only to forget what you were looking for, or feeling overwhelmed by your usual work load? Difficulty finding words or recalling events recently? When these symptoms inhibit your ability to function daily we need to reconsider what is normal and understand that they can be easily reversed. Impaired cognitive function can be exhausting leaving you drained and unable to connect with family, creating relationship patterns that may be harmful. It’s common to blame aging, however, this may be your biggest mistake, falling further into mental and physical fatigue as time goes on, while the real problem goes unresolved.
The cascade effect that creates these conditions are a combination of factors rather than just one cause. A highly intense stressful event or short illness may drive the body toward a myriad of effects triggering like dominoes. Once this cascade begins, it creates symptoms of adrenal fatigue, thyroid hypofunction, fluid retention, and deficiencies of necessary vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. These are required to provide optimal brain function, and energy to produce dopamine for motivation, adrenalin for energy, serotonin for mood, and many more responsible for memory and problem solving. It only takes one missing nutrient to interrupt a biochemical pathway required to complete a function in the body or brain. It can be very simple to rectify, if correctly diagnosed through thorough, yet easily available pathology testing. Memory, mood, hormonal and energy issues are not untreatable. The cause of these concerns are easy to determine with the right investigation. You have a choice. Change the path of your life for the better, for you and your family. Call for a free half hour consultation to discuss your particular health concerns on 1800 MY WELLNESS (1800 699 355).

space and facilities, the club is proactively seeking sponsors and is already in talks with the Sunshine Coast Council to look at potential for a secondary space for the club. Once the space constraints are addressed, Mr Collins says continued growth in the number of women engaging in the sport will allow the club to continue to expand, first with an increase in the number of divisions the club can field teams in. Eventually, he hopes to see the club develop an elite sporting facility especially for female footballers. “The Coast is becoming a bit of a sporting capital and we are on the verge of launching something which is going to be massive,” he says. “We hope people come down and take in the spectacle once we start playing home games. The ladies are up for a 26-round season, which is larger than the 16 to 18 rounds they’re used to. They have a big season ahead of them and I’m sure they will shine.” Once the squads are finalised, pre-season training will begin in December and the 2018 season will kick off in February.

SANCTUARY FOUND AS JUDY NUNN VISITS THE COAST For many Judy Nunn is known for her roles on The Box, Prisoner, Sons and Daughters and, of course, Home and Away. But Ms Nunn has also found huge success as a bestselling author, with more than one million book sales worldwide. Her 14th novel, Sanctuary, will no doubt be a contender for the charts. Ms Nunn’s novels take the reader to locations around Australia, and through different eras, but Sanctuary is the first to be set completely in modern-day Australia. Inspired by a visit to the Houtman Abrolhos, a chain of islands off the coast of Geraldton, Ms Nunn says she always wanted to base a novel around the desolate islands and found the emotionally charged topic of ‘boat people’ to be the perfect fit. “In this book there are people arriving by boat, which makes it illegal of course, and only eight adults and a little boy survive a shipwreck that leaves them closer to death than they are to life,” she tells My Weekly Preview.
“They arrive on this island and find everything they need to survive, but have no idea where they are. There are people living on the mainland in a small fishing village and they are just waiting for these people to find out they are there. Although Sanctuary is more contemporary, we are always living history and today will be tomorrow’s history. We are living through very historical times.” Ms Nunn says she wasn’t worried about how a novel based on the highly contentious issue would be received. “I make no statements as a writer; it is all about the characters,” she says. “This is a fictitious story about love and survival and the human spirit. Of course, my characters within the story are going to have a great deal to say. This is by no means a ‘romantic’ novel, but it is probably the strongest ‘love story’ I’ve yet written.” Ms Nunn will make two appearances on the Coast as part of a six-week tour. – Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane Judy Nunn will be at a Literary Lunch at Noosa Beach House on November 8 from 12pm. Tickets are $65 and available at penguin.com.au/events/. She will also be at The Events Centre, Caloundra on November 8 from 7pm. Tickets are $25 from library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ Whats-On.

street art and performances. But, it is South Bank that captures the imagination of our youngest family member when we hit the popular parkland the following day. We wind through the colourful, vibrant markets, stopping to admire creative handicrafts before settling under a large native rainforest tree to let our son run free in the Aquativity water fun park. Despite being a Sunday, it doesn’t feel crowded, which is largely due to the clever architecture and design of South Bank, as well as the plentiful activities on offer. We end the morning with a lazy lunch at Southbank Beer Garden dining out on the sounds of buskers and happy families, and soaking in the sunshine and river views. Who knew that a 24-hour visit to the city could be relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable?
city ESCAPE STAYING THERE The five-star Brisbane Marriott Hotel blends tradition with sophistication. Facilities include a restaurant, bar, pool and gym. Rooms and suites offer city or river views. Situated on Queen Street, it is a short walk from the CBD shopping and restaurants. Visit marriott.com.au
SHORT & SWEET A day and night is all you need to grab a slice of city life. WORDS: Candice Holznagel
opping liquid nitrogen into your mouth seems a little unnatural, even if it is Baileys-inspired, chocolatey goodness. The unusual and unique dessert pops and crackles into a taste explosion. “Can I try this one next?” I excitedly ask the chef, pointing to a Pernod-infused sweet honeycomb snack. There’s no denying it – he has won us over with his molecular gastronomy talents. It’s the perfect way to end our meal at Alchemy Restaurant & Bar, an award-winning venue that is perched on the edge of the Brisbane River in the popular foodie precinct of Eagle Street Pier. Frequented by the city’s fine dining connoisseurs, Alchemy is the creation of celebrated chef Brad Jolly, who has worked alongside the likes of Marco Pierre White and Jamie Oliver, and his team is known for serving up Australian dishes with a slight French flair. The food is exquisite, as is the service, and it sets a high
standard at the beginning of our weekend city escape. Thankfully, Brisbane continues to deliver, entertaining and exciting with its beautiful weather, bustling CBD and lively atmosphere. We base ourselves at the grand Brisbane Marriott Hotel. Staying at this five-star hotel is like taking a step back in time. The soaring ceilings, sandstone features, chandeliers and quality customer service, not to mention its location, are all key factors in attracting a blend of leisure and business guests. The hotel overlooks the Brisbane River and the glass panel of our room provides a seemingly endless view across the water and city skyline. And while we could sit and enjoy the view for hours, we opt to hit the city and bask in all it has to offer. As we meander along the Riverwalk towards Queen Street Mall, we question why we don’t venture the hour south more often. The mall itself offers dozens of dining options, endless shopping and, for our curious toddler,

A CHANGE OF PACE IN PORT STEPHENS This unusual stretch of beach offers the perfect coastal getaway for families. WORDS: Will Knight, AAP November, that is. We didn’t have any luck inside the heads or at the top of Mount Tomaree, which is a nice walk nonetheless. But if you go outside the heads on a boat tour, the chances of spotting a humpback are high. The writer travelled as a guest of Destination NSW.
IF YOU GO:
an you see that camel over there?” Rod asks. “No,” I reply, looking across the Stockton sand dunes behind Birubi Beach. “Haaah. That’s because it’s camel-flage,” Rod follows up, with a roar of laughter. My wife and I have a chuckle – mostly because our two boys, aged five and seven are totally baffled. Riding on the back of a camel near Anna Bay gives you plenty of time to take in this curious landscape, which is just north of Newcastle in the Port Stephens region of New South Wales. The sand dunes cover most of the 32-kilometre stretch of Stockton Beach
and reach back as far as a kilometre from the shoreline. It’s eerie. Desolate. Mesmerising. Tin City is another peculiar addition – the 11 tin sheds sitting on the dunes were initially constructed to help out sailors whose vessels had become shipwrecked on Stockton Beach. Quad biking is a quicker way to move on the dunes than camel, and not always noisier. My seven-year-old was allowed his own 90cc bike and was buzzing for days afterwards. Hopefully he took in a bit of what the Aboriginal guide had to say about the native-title land we were riding on, known as the Worimi Conservation Lands. It’s nice to know that the tour cost – adults pay $110 and kids seven to 13 cost $65 – is poured back into
EUROPE ON SALE ITALY & SPAIN
supporting the local Worimi traditional land owners, and community initiatives. For the most part the Port Stephens region is classic coastal Australia. The region offers exactly what many Australians are familiar with when they head for the ocean over the summer holidays. There are 26 beaches and a perfect climate to match. “The weather is great,” says Paddy, the cruise director on the dolphin-watching tour we take from Nelson Bay. “It’s not a bad office I’ve got here.” A cruise around the bay to spot bottlenose dolphins is probably the main dish as far as the area’s attractions go. The area is a mecca for whale-watching too – between May and

AN ITALIAN INDULGENCE Planning is the key when travelling with an elderly parent. WORDS: Courtney Bonnell, AAP TUSCAN COUNTRYSIDE
y mum can’t take a good picture. It’s not that she needs time to adjust the lighting or find a better angle. It doesn’t get better after the 10th try. But her terrible shots didn’t matter on our mother-daughter trip to Italy. Neither did her aversion to stairs, her preference for taxis over public transport or the fact that wine isn’t part of her lifestyle like it is most Italians. Travel is our passion. So are history, museums and conversation over a good meal, making Florence, Milan and the Tuscan countryside ideal destinations for a trip to celebrate her 70th year. Here are the dos and don’ts if you’re considering a trip with older relatives or anyone who doesn’t know their way around a smartphone camera.
FLORENCE Do: Find a quality hotel with a patient concierge to handle a barrage of questions about where to go and what to do. Enjoy the change if you’re a typically active traveller. Don’t: Push your non-photo-taker to go to four museums in one day. Even if you fear
missing something, it’s too much to hit the Accademia, the San Marco, Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery in such a short span. Do: See those landmarks, at a more leisurely pace, including lesser-visited San Marco. Poke your head into a long series of tiny monks’ rooms to glimpse religious frescoes. The Palazzo Vecchio deserves more time than we had, with its foundation of Roman ruins and palatial rooms. Don’t: Try to do the Uffizi on your own. The museum is massive, with lines to match. A guide can direct you to the must-sees such as Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. Make reservations for other top sights, including the Duomo complex, to avoid lines. Do: Focus on food. That’s easy to do in Italy, where wine is like water and pasta choices are endless. Between restaurants, encourage parents to try the Mercato Centrale, packed with food stalls and a diverse food court. Don’t: Forget to enjoy the city. Relax in cafes with an aperol spritz between sightseeing. Most places provide snacks with alcohol, so dig in. Take a cab to the Piazza Michelangelo and bask in some of Florence’s best views.
Do: Book a private tour through the famous northern wine region of Chianti and the southern Orcia valley with its distinctive rolling hills, red poppies and medieval villages. It won’t be cheap, but it might be your parents’ favourite part of the trip. Don’t: Expect to get around easily. You need a car to get to those charming villages and the desire to navigate the serpentine roads. We stayed in a villa outside Siena, with a terrace to play cards by the late-setting sun, but we were still 20 minutes from the heart of the medieval town and its restaurants and shops. Do: Explore Siena. It’s worth spending a day or two trudging through the hilly city centre. This was a slight problem for my mum, who doesn’t do well walking uphill, but the Piazza del Campo provides a perfect pit stop. The bowl-shaped square splays out downhill, attracting picnickers, tourists and groups of teens. We spent a few hours people-watching from the cafes ringing the square.
MILAN Do: Explore the city on your own when your parents want to rest. I beelined up the main pedestrian street, circled over to a museum of Renaissance art, then strolled through the hip Brera district. Head to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the world’s oldest shopping malls, which features some local shops among high-end brands like Prada. Don’t: Wait too long to book reservations for ‘The Last Supper’. Even a month and a half before our trip, all that was left was a six-hour walking tour. Luckily, we started at the church housing da Vinci’s masterpiece so she could drop out when she got tired.
GREAT DEALS ESCAPE TRAVEL AIRLIE BEACH FROM $559 PER PERSON Stay four nights at the Boathaven Spa Resort, which is a five minute stroll to restaurants, shops and the lagoon.

DRIVE AWAY IN NEW ZEALAND
â€œLocals dubbed the cavern the Door to Hellâ€?
It may seem an unlikely spot for a dinner party, but the Darvaza gas crater in the middle of Turkmenistanâ€™s Karakum Desert hosted just such an event for a group of Australians who visited the country recently. Travelling with independent travel company Travel Directors, the group camped overnight at the crater to experience the full dramatic impact of the sight of the burning pit against the night sky. In 1971, Soviet geologists were drilling in the Karakum Desert when they tapped into a cavern filled with gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole about 80 metres in diameter. To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided the best solution was to burn it off. The geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today â€“ 46 years later. Locals have dubbed the cavern the Door to Hell.
Travel Directorsâ€™ groups spend a night at the crater. â€œThe Darvaza gas crater is an amazing sight during the day, but after dark it is simply spectacular,â€? tour creator Tony Evans says. â€œItâ€™s quite a boast to say youâ€™ve camped in a Turkmen desert, had a candlelit dinner, and woken up in a place that most people havenâ€™t heard of.â€? The dinner party at the crater is a fitting finale to Travel Directorsâ€™ Five Stans tour, which also takes in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. It includes flights, taxes, accommodation, meals, sightseeing and entrance fees, plus all tipping and visas, which on this tour is an exercise in itself. The 30-day tour departs May 6 and September 2, 2018, priced from $17,750. Phone 1300 856 661 or visit traveldirectors.com.au
New Zealand is a little different from most other holiday destinations, simply because it really is so compact and yet extraordinarily â€“ despite its small size, it is home to an enormously diverse range of scenery and landscapes. New Zealandâ€™s obvious charms have made it a hub for tourism since the late 1800s, when international visitors first discovered the unique attractions of this land. Since then, the world has caught onto this little secret. And there are many ways to enjoy New Zealand â€“ play a round of golf at some of the countryâ€™s best courses, visit film
locations as part of a Hobbit or Lord of the Rings tour, immerse yourself in an amazing array of eco-tourism experiences, tantalise taste buds with world-class food and wine, or thrill your socks off with adrenalinecharged activities. Kirra Tours has a range of self-drive packages created to get the most out of your time in Aotearoa (New Zealand). Choose an existing itinerary from seven to 22 days that includes some of the finest holiday locations, or customise a journey and design the perfect self-drive getaway.

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
Joint ventures and relationship improvements are on the table, but don’t spoil a productive week by being impulsive and putting your foot firmly in your mouth! Think before you speak, and consult with others before you make an important move.
It’s the perfect week to organise your work space, so it increases your creativity and boosts your productivity. Saturday’s full moon (in your sign) emphasises your practical side, as a project is finally completed (or a problem comes to a head).
Don’t let your spontaneous enthusiasm (for an exciting new project or joint venture) overtake your ability to knuckle down and get the job done. If you promise more than you can deliver, then others will just end up feeling disappointed.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
Family and work is favoured, as Saturn stabilises relationships and boosts productivity. Someone may question your aspirations for the future though. Time to ask yourself “Am I full of big dreams but short on practical details?”
This week Venus and Mars provide opportunities to make fortuitous connections and sharpen your communication skills. With the full moon illuminating your career zone, find ways to inspire others and shine more brightly on the job.
Attached Virgo – the sun and Neptune activate your relationship zone, so do your best to add some romantic sizzle. Single? The stars favour finding your soul mate online. (The perfect partner doesn’t exist! Everyone has weaknesses.)
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
Expect a week of topsy-turvy extremes. Saturn helps stabilise a relationship so that you start to feel more certain about the future. But then Uranus comes along and stirs things up! So do your best to find some agreeable middle ground.
The planets encourage you to approach challenges with plenty of intelligence and resilience. Be inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe, “I’ve been terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”
You’re keen to be in charge but are you being the boss – or just plain bossy? Saturn and Venus encourage you to utilise your leadership skills in disciplined and diplomatic ways that result in cooperation rather than consternation!
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
With the help of diplomatic Venus and proactive Mars, strive to anticipate (and smooth over) work-place hassles before they actually happen. Friday’s Venus/ Saturn connection is fabulous for love, money, career and business.
The full moon heralds a house move, home renovation, family fiasco, uninvited guests or some other kind of domestic drama. Whatever happens, strive to get the balance right between your public life and your private responsibilities.
The current stars favour romance, creativity and spirituality. But are your aspirations ambitious enough? There’s no room for false modesty or passive procrastination! It’s a terrific week to enjoy talking, texting, posting, promoting, socialising and circulating.

CENTURY 21 CELEBRATION This week Century 21 Grant Smith Property celebrated 10 years in business. Mr Smith and his team hosted more than 250 clients and friends at the Mercedes Benz Sunshine Coast showroom. A flowing bar complemented a grand piano with entertainment from Trevor Jones and Cassidy Wilson from the Palazzo Versace. As a proud supporter of SunnyKids, an auction for a weekend at Versace with a Mercedes Benz and a seafood dinner cruise raised $1500 for charity. The afternoon was an opportunity to thank clients and staff who have all shared the decade long journey of Grant Smith Property. The chairman of Century 21 Australasia, Charles Tarbey, was in attendance and acknowledged Mr Smithâ€™s accolades.

with MWP’s man in the water
Now we are getting to the pointy end of WSL. Unless injuries play a part, it will be a three-way race to the end with Medina, John John and Jordy all in contention. Hard to imagine seeing John John lose but anything is possible. Hopefully they score some massive pipeline waves. Now back to the Coast with no waves. I cannot recall such a long, dry spell. I’m not going to lie – I think I am turning into Mr Cranky Pants. My medicine is to go and see the new Thor movie – it’s a cross between Flight of the Conchords and superheroes. Damn funny when you throw a Kiwi accent in. Man, I need some waves!
