ISSUE 478 December 8, 2017


Children’s fantasy novel Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is being hailed as the biggest thing in Australian publishing in more than a decade. It debuted at number eight on Nielsen BookScan’s Australian bestsellers chart, making it the biggest debut children’s book in the Australian market since records began. Author, the Coast’s own Jessica Townsend, is being called the next J.K Rowling. We have five copies of the book to give away.



t has taken me many years – around 30 in fact – to realise the impact stress has on the body. It is this realisation which has driven a substantial change in my life, and that is to stress less over the little things. I won’t lie – I still have a long way to go, but I am finally starting to see what life is for, and it most certainly is not for worrying that the living room floor is covered in Lego and puzzle pieces. There are many triggers, and it is important to identify the differences between stress and anxiety. I’ve got a number of consistent stressors and worries, however, in the past few months I have thrown caution to the wind. I now openly admit that we have the help of a house cleaner, who I absolutely adore. And, some nights I dish up meals less gourmet and more last minute. But, you know what? That’s okay. I won’t actually receive a Bad Mother of the Year medal for serving my son scrambled eggs with a side of peas on the odd occasion. There are more important things in life. I would much rather watch the smile on my son’s face as he runs under the sprinkler, or read him book after book, than be cooped up in the kitchen. It seems I’m not alone. This week, Jessica Rowe and a number of Sunshine Coast educators open up about stress. With Christmas around the corner, there is no better time to reassess your stress levels and the impact they are having on your health. I hope you find the story as thought-provoking as I did. Happy reading.

A GOOD SPORT Where do you live? I live in Buddina about 500 metres from the family home I grew up in. I moved to Sydney when I was 18 and lived there for 10 years and then the UK for six years. When I retired four years ago we moved straight back to Buddina because we missed it so much. First job? Working in my parent’s store, the BBQ & Fireplace Centre in Maroochydore. What are you currently working on? I’m working with our Falcons head coach Craig Ingebrigtsen on recruiting players and sponsors for the Falcons upcoming season. We narrowly lost the Intrust Super Cup grand final in 2017 so we are looking to go one better in 2018.

Chris Flannery


BIO Chris Flannery grew up on the Sunshine Coast and moved from Kawana to Sydney at 18 to play for the Sydney Roosters. He was part of the premiership winning team in 2002, then played in the UK Super League from 2007 to 2012. He retired at the age of 32 and moved back to the Sunshine Coast with his young family at the end of 2012. Mr Flannery is the CEO of the Sunshine Coast Falcons based at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

06.indd 1


Your family includes… My wife Renee, who is also from the Sunshine Coast, and my two daughters Layla, eight, and Evie, six, who were both born in the UK. First car? A beaten-up Subaru my dad bought me. I drove it to Sydney and was on my way to a game when a guy ran a red light and cleaned me up, and that was the end of Suby. The insurance company paid me $3000 for it, which I couldn’t believe as it was only worth about $500 by that time!

if she doesn’t see this then it was scoring a try in and winning the NRL grand final in 2002, and of course my two girls being born. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The day I signed my full-time contract to play with the Roosters when I was 16. That was when I realised all the hard work I had put in and the sacrifices my parents had made to get me there were about to pay off. Obviously there was a lot more hard work to come after that. Your greatest regret? In sport – losing the ’03 and ’04 NRL grand finals. In life – missing plenty of family and friends’ weddings and birthdays due to football commitments.

“My parents always told me to treat people the way I would like to be treated”

Best advice you’ve been given? My parents always told me to treat people the way I would like to be treated. I’ve tried to do that my entire life. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? We do spend plenty of time at the beach, La Balsa Park for barbecues and Point Cartwright for exploring the rock pools with the girls. Noosa is also perfect for weekend getaways as we love the Noosa National Park, Noosa River and the beaches up there. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? Probably the traffic, especially at Christmas time, but it is still a lot better than the Sydney and London traffic, so I shouldn’t complain. Best day in your life? Wow, tough one! If my wife is reading this then it was definitely my wedding day, but

What achievement are you most proud of? Not sure if it is my greatest achievement but I’m very proud of where the Falcons club has come from (wooden spooners for a number of years and on the edge financially) to where we are now. The huge amount of community support that we have behind us now is fantastic.

You are happiest when? Relaxing at home with the family or in the Falcons dressing room singing our victory song with the team after a good win. What frustrates you the most? Negative people. How do you deal with your frustrations? I’m a fairly relaxed person most of the time but I find that going for a run followed by a swim at the beach usually calms me down if I’m frustrated. If you could tell your 18 year-old self anything what would it be? Enjoy every day because life goes too fast and you never know when the ride will end. Tea or coffee? Coffee. NRL or AFL? NRL, of course!

An Australian study found that around 36 per cent of full-time workers take mental health days or leave for stress.

Meaning: A vessel for boiling water or making a cup of tea or coffee. Origin: This popular reference comes from the Scottish dialect word ‘billy-pot’ and from the term bouilli tin, which was recorded in Australia in 1858, and was a tin that contained preserved bully beef for cooking.



DID YOU KNOW? Eating an average serving size of dark chocolate every day for two weeks is thought to reduce levels of stress hormones as well as catecholamines, hormones which trigger the intensity of a fight or flight response.

SICK OF BEING STRESSED? It’s no secret chronic stress can wreak havoc on your mind and body, affect your relationships and take the fun out of life. We spoke to five people with unique perspectives on how to manage stress, not just at Christmas, but all year round. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“You live in a home, not a showroom. You want it to be a home and full of fun. Choose to spend time with the things that bring you joy” – Jessica Rowe


essica Rowe has outed herself as a crap housewife and she’s the happiest she’s been in years. The gregarious TV presenter, journalist, author and mother of two daughters has dialled down the stress in her life by simply accepting her failings on the domestic front and taking the pressure off herself to be perfect in all aspects of her life. And the funny misadventures she shares on her website have struck a chord with women around Australia. “Crap Housewife is meant to be fun,” she tells My Weekly Preview of the site. “I’m a big believer in having a laugh and using humour to diffuse difficult, dreadful times in our lives. Crap Housewife is a way of taking the pressure off all of us and doing it in a fun, lighthearted way. “It would be wonderful to be a domestic goddess, but that’s never going to happen for me. That’s not my skill set and that’s all right. There’s no point tying myself in knots because I have a messy house and washing that hasn’t been put away for three weeks. “I’m all for supporting women and saying, ‘You know what? You’re good enough’.” Ms Rowe says she wasn’t expecting the website to resonate with so many women – she now has 72,000 Instagram followers – and sees it as an antidote to the glossy images of gourmet children’s lunchboxes clearly crafted by supermums and spotless homes that flood social media.

10 My Weekly Preview | December 8, 2017

“Pressure can come from a variety of sources but I think for a lot of women, it’s the pressure we put on ourselves we need to look at,” she says. “When I went through postnatal depression I thought, am I the only one? What’s wrong with me? Through getting treatment and hearing other women’s experiences, I realised I wasn’t the only one. I had put the pressure on myself. “I think it’s so important that we give one another permission to go, ‘No, my life isn’t perfect and I’ve had a really crappy day’. Being a modern mummy is wonderful, but it’s also messy, chaotic and sometimes boring.” Ms Rowe loves it when women come up to her in the supermarket and share a laugh about her burnt lasagne photos or her steadfast reliance on mince and panko breadcrumbs to come up with kid-friendly meals. But until recently, she would have been horrified had anyone known her impeccable public image didn’t extend to the homefront. “No way!” she laughs when asked if she could have done the website when she was younger. “I’m 47 now and it’s really only since I’ve been in my forties that I’ve become more confident in being honest. Part of me does still worry about what people think, but I now care less and less.” Ms Rowe has battled severe depression and anxiety and is an ambassador for beyondblue and a Member of the Order of

Australia for her mental health advocacy. She has no shame in speaking about taking antidepressants to keep her on an even keel. “If I had a physical ailment, there’d be no issue with me taking medication to help with that,” she says. In the lead-up to Christmas, she advises people to get real with themselves and their families, and not buy into the expectation. “Christmas is a stressful time of year,” she says. “My sister taught me to lower your expectations. We’re having Christmas at our house but I’m not cooking. I’m providing the cutlery, drinks, nice tablecloths and crackers. My sister enjoys food and knows what she’s doing, so she will cook. Play to your strengths and ask for help.” Ms Rowe has a weekly house cleaner she calls a “miracle worker” but is relaxed about her house becoming messy. “You live in a home, not a showroom. You want it to be a home and full of fun. When you’re time poor, you want to choose to spend time with the things that bring you joy. We’ve got so much pressure as parents with this generation because we are expected to be present and in the moment with our kids, to have the career, to have this, to have that. “For me, I’d rather be watching my girls run on the sand and have a swim than be at home cleaning the house and unloading the dishwasher. We’ve got to cut ourselves some slack.”




Senior lecturer in psychology at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Dr Rachael Sharman says stress is a normal part of life and parents need to build more resilience in their children in order to better equip them to deal with it. “We live in a society where children are mollycoddled and protected too much from stressful events,” Dr Sharman says. “One of the things we’re seeing in today’s parenting culture is children who’ve never had to deal with stress until into their teens or adulthood and they fall apart.” Apart from the cushioning effect that too much overprotective parenting can have on children, Dr Sharman also has concerns for the impacts on children of living with permanently stressed parents. “I think people forget that for children, the home really is the basis of their security. The relationship with their parents is really important to them and the dynamics of the home forms a platform for their security. Not till they venture out into the world do they realise there’s other people to rely on. Anything that threatens their security or is problematic has much stronger implications than parents appreciate. You’re an adult, you

4/12/2017 1:22:26 PM

COVER STORY have a wider net of security, but kids don’t. For them, whatever is happening in the home is the core feature of their lives.” Constant work demands even outside of the workplace are one of the major factors in our rising stress levels, she says, and while we think we’re working hard for our families, they’re the ones bearing the brunt. “The only way to deal with stress is to learn what’s caused the problem,” she says. “I know it sounds basic, but few people do it. Rather than trying to control the symptoms, you’re better off directing your energy to controlling the cause.”



As the owner of Advanced Wellness in Maroochydore, Jodi Chapman, meets a lot of stressed people. “Most of the people that come to see me have had ongoing stress for a really long time that’s pushing them into adrenal fatigue,” she says. “Even when they rationalise and say there’s nothing happening at the moment causing the symptoms, the hormones have been depleted and it takes months to rebuild those hormones. “Cortisol is increased, which has an instant effect on all the other hormones. DHEA, which is involved in ageing, decreases. Often our memory declines, vision declines, muscle strength declines and when I say muscular strength, I mean the gut as well. Things start to shut down during intense stress, including our ability to feel happy.” Ms Chapman says chronic stress causes us to burn through the nutrients required to sustain a healthy balance of hormones and causes overall depletion. “You need to look at your nutritional status,” she says. “Dopamine is made from B vitamins, vitamin C, copper and magnesium – these are all burned up by stress. You need to look at your diet and sometimes you need nutrients in higher amounts during stressful times. Especially if the gut is shutting down, we do need to rely on high-quality

11.indd 1

supplementation to reduce inflammation and repair the gut. “Getting good quality sleep is also one of the best ways to rest your adrenal glands so you can make more hormones. “It all comes down to how well you manage your stress and that’s where other modalities come in, like psychology and meditation.”

GESHE PHUNTSOK TSULTRIM – BUDDHIST MONK Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim is the primary teacher at Chenrezig Institute for Buddhist Studies and Meditation at Eudlo. He was born in Tibet in 1969 and became a monk at the age of 14. From a Buddhist perspective, which focuses on mind states, stress arises from our tendency to be too self-centred and out of touch with reality. “Often, not only do we not understand how reality works, we imagine things to exist in a way that does not accord at all with reality, so we set ourselves up for situations in which our expectations and wishes are not going to be met,” he says. Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim says materialism also plays a part in raising our stress levels, not just in Western countries, but across the world. “The world around us is geared up to increase our level of material dissatisfaction and to make us believe that true happiness and wellbeing comes from external sources – money, fame, possessions, etc. “With lack of knowledge of reality, being conditioned to thinking of ourselves first, to being less concerned with the welfare of others, our level of dissatisfaction is bound to increase. There is not enough knowledge that is being provided to us about how to develop inner wellbeing. I think that basic methods for sustaining mental wellbeing can be introduced into our education system to provide better coping mechanisms. “I think that being more open-minded

with an attitude that is oriented towards others, rather than being self-centred, is helpful. Developing a deep sense of concern for others – love and compassion – is the key to mental happiness and wellbeing in my opinion.”

KUREK ASHLEY – SUCCESS COACH Kurek Ashley is an American actor, author, speaker and success coach who lives in Eudlo with his Australian wife Erin and three children. He coaches individuals and Fortune 500 companies around the world. In his bestselling book, How Would Love Respond? he shares the story of pulling himself back from the depths of depression, drug and alcohol addiction and attempted suicide after he was involved in a horrific helicopter crash in 1989 while filming a Chuck Norris film and lost five friends. “One of the key things that really changed my life in those days was asking myself, ‘how do you want to be remembered Kurek?’ I said, ‘every day I have to work on myself’.” Mr Ashley has a deep understanding of the havoc stress can wreak and follows a daily recipe for creating happiness. “The first thing I always work with people on is, you have to start off your day strong,” he says. “Mentally strong, physically strong, emotionally strong and spiritually strong. I call them your four main muscle groups. If you don’t work one of those muscle groups, the weak link of the chain gives up.” Mr Ashley prescribes exercise in the morning – whether hitting the gym, dancing, walking, running or swimming. Next he advises engaging the mind – reading, learning a foreign language, audio programs that coach you in your business. Next comes emotional health. “The funny part is, we’re actually emotional creatures,” he says. “We’re not rational creatures. It’s a very strong muscle. We’ve all said and done things when we’re in a

bad emotional space and we reget it later. The exercise could be to quit beating up on yourself, acknowledge yourself for everything you’re doing approximately right. Hang out with happy, positive people. The final exercise is for the spiritual part of ourselves, and Mr Ashley recommends trying this exercise: “Look at yourself in the mirror every day for 30 seconds and convince yourself that you love the person you’re looking at. It feels weird and you feel stupid, but that’s just a toxin and your body will flush it out. Pump love back into yourself.”

If you’re suffering from stress, speak to your GP. Alternatively, call the Australian Psychological Society on 1800 333 497 or visit Call LifeLine on 13 11 14 for 24-hour crisis support.

5 TIPS TO MANAGE STRESS The following tips from the APS can help you cope with stress before it takes hold: 1. Identify warning signs These might include things like tensing your jaw, grinding your teeth, getting headaches, or feeling irritable and short tempered. 2. Identify triggers Triggers might include late nights, deadlines, seeing particular people, hunger or over-tired children. 3. Establish routines Having predictable rhythms and routines such as regular times for exercise and relaxation, meal times, waking and bedtimes, can be calming and reassuring. 4. Look after your health Make sure you’re eating healthy food and getting regular exercise. Take time to do activities you find calming or uplifting, such as listening to music, walking or dancing. 5. Notice your self-talk When we’re stressed we sometimes say things in our head, over and over, that just add to our stress. This unhelpful self-talk might include things like: ‘I can’t cope’, or ‘I’m too busy’, or ‘I’m so tired’, or ‘It’s not fair’. Try more helpful self-talk like ‘I’m coping well given what’s on my plate’, or ‘Calm down’, or ‘Breathe easy’.

The future of a proposed $95 million eco-tourism resort for Buderim will have its fate decided by the Sunshine Coast Council early in 2018. The Badderam Eco Luxe Resort and Spa is a seven-star project that could be built in Buderim by 2025. Badderam creative director Heidi Meyer predicts the venue will attract 55,000 visitors a year, delivering $35 million to the local economy. Council officers were recommending the rejection of the development application, but Cr Tim Dwyer has called the project up to the full council for consideration. “I didn’t call it up because I supported it, or for that matter opposed it – just to ensure an application of this significance was fully considered,” he says.

$5 MILLION 300 CHRISTMAS HAMPERS FOR NEEDY Shine Community Care volunteers have been working hard to create and deliver 300 Christmas hampers, a tradition they have upheld for the past 10 years. Before the hampers, valued at $20,000, were even delivered Shine had helped more than 1580 people through a range of initiatives including assisting grandparents fulfilling the role of parents, running free budgeting and employment workshops, parenting courses and playgroups for families and helping those in need with food packs, transport and emergency relocation assistance. The charity is the community arm of the C3 Church Kawana Waters.

An appeal has gone out to help this single mother battling cancer to pay rent and provide for her children. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


routine physical examination may have saved a Buderim mother’s life. Daphne Nasir was having a health check to satisfy visa requirements in order to stay in the country with her children, who are Australian residents, when doctors found an anomaly on one of her lungs. The single mother of three became a widower in 2004 after she lost the love of her life to lung cancer. She recently received the crushing diagnosis that she has a rare form of aggressive mature T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoblastic lymphoma. Best friend Annie Belcher, who has known Ms Nasir since they were 15-yearolds in Hong Kong, says Ms Nasir was asymptomatic before the diagnosis, but the chemotherapy is taking its toll on her body. “She is too unwell to work and is spending one week out of three in hospital,” Ms Belcher says. “Her kids, who are 17 and 18 years old, are fending for themselves, with the eldest working part-time and trying to get through uni. The youngest has just finished Year 11 and cannot find work and all through this,

“They have already lost their father to cancer and their mum’s diagnosis has really throttled them” they are staring down the barrel of losing their mum. “They have already lost their father to

cancer and their mum’s diagnosis has really throttled them.” Ms Belcher has done what she can for the family, providing meals for them and providing emotional support through this tough time, but she says Ms Nasir’s inability to work has resulted in “massive anxiety attacks” as her best friend worries how she will continue to keep a roof over her family’s heads. Ms Belcher is now reaching out to the Sunshine Coast community to help in any way that they can and has set up a Go Fund Me account for Ms Nasir for the sole purpose of paying the family’s rent for the next six months while Ms Nasir is undergoing treatment. “Just from the people we know, we have raised more than $8500, but we’d like to reach $25,000 to give her peace of mind so she can focus on her recovery,” Ms Belcher says. “The real estate agents, Century 21, have given them a rental reduction and done everything they can possibly do, which is brilliant, but the burden of paying rent and bills has fallen on the kids and they are ill-prepared for this and I want to pay the rent for as long as I can so Daph can focus

on treatment and recovery and the kids can worry a little less.” To give the fundraising drive an extra boost, Ms Belcher is putting her 50-centimetre-long blonde hair on the line and is preparing to cut it off on December 15. The hair will be donated to a wig maker to provide a cancer patient with a beautiful wig. “My hair goes down to my tailbone and Daph has called me Goldilocks forever, so she was shocked when I said I would chop it off to support the fundraising cause,” Ms Belcher says. “December 15 is also a powerful day for me as it’s my father’s birthday and he died two years ago from esophageal cancer. “I offered to cut my hair off while he was undergoing treatment, but he said he could get by without his because he was a bloke. “It doesn’t seem fair that my bestie is rocking a pixie cut and I have this long hair.”

Tuesday was a special one on our Sunshine Coast with a brunch at Lake Kawana Community Centre thanking our wonderful volunteers for their continuing contributions to our community. Since the endorsement of the Sunshine Coast Social Strategy in 2015, council has been working hard to achieve an aspirational target of one in four of our community members volunteering within our region. We are definitely on track with the most recent statistics indicating 20.6 per cent of Coast residents are volunteers. It is estimated that our volunteers contribute the equivalent of $245.5 million in unpaid wages – the equivalent of 4031 people working full-time donating their time to assist our community. In addition to the significant economic contribution, volunteering can increase self-esteem, happiness, a sense of purpose and confidence. It also exposes people to different skills, facilities and experiences. And it’s good for your health. Thank you to all of our volunteers and if you haven’t experienced volunteering, I’d encourage you to consider looking up one of your local clubs or organisations.

METER AMNESTY IN CALOUNDRA For the seventh consecutive year, a parking meter fee amnesty is underway in the Caloundra CBD for the Christmas/ New Year holidays. The eight-week amnesty will run until the end of the school holiday period on Sunday, January 28. Each of the 71 parking meters across the CBD has been turned off and courtesy stickers placed on them as a reminder that no payment is required. While shoppers take advantage of the amnesty, council officers will inspect each of the meters, and undertake any necessary maintenance, to ensure they’re all operating correctly. Though parking will be free, the two-hour time limit will still apply to support customer turnover for local businesses during the busy holiday period. Parking patrols will continue within Caloundra CBD to monitor general parking regulations. We’re encouraging locals and visitors to explore the great range of shops and activities Caloundra has to offer during December and January.

LAND FOR WILDLIFE MILESTONE Eumundi residents Greg L’Estrange and Jenny Brice have been opening their home to local businesses for years, hosting conferences at their property. They have now cemented a new partnership as the 1000th landholder on the Sunshine Coast to ensure their property also offers a home to local wildlife, including ringtail possums like Blossom (pictured). After seeing the success experienced by their neighbours on their property, Greg and Jenny joined the Land for Wildlife Program, which was founded in Victoria in 1981 and launched in Queensland in 1998. Since its inception, it has become one of the most successful private land conservation programs in Australia. We’re proud to say Sunshine Coast landholders were some of the first to join the program when it first started in 1998, and our first registered partners are still involved with the program today.

Our Land for Wildlife program has the largest membership delivered by any Australian local government, collectively protecting and restoring 8272 hectares of habitat across the region. Land For Wildlife represents an incredible contribution and commitment to our natural environment, and builds on the work council does in other areas such as land acquisitions to create habitat corridors and provide homes for the diverse array of wildlife and birdlife here on the Sunshine Coast. On behalf of all residents of the Sunshine Coast, we sincerely thank Greg and Jenny and all the other landholders and council staff who continue to support this wonderful program. You can find out more details on the free, voluntary conservation program on council’s website. To join Land for Wildlife or to speak to a conservation partnerships officer, call 5475 7272.

OLYMPIAN BRINGS PEDAL POWER TO THE COAST A local cyclist is jumping on her bike in Buderim for a great cause. WORDS: Sarah Ward.

22.indd 1



ambour-born Australian representative cyclist Shara Gillow is no stranger to a challenge. The athlete is gearing up to compete in the upcoming national championships, which will be staged in January, and she is hoping to qualify for the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the event. “I have my individual time trial on Friday the fifth, and Sunday the seventh is the road race,’’ she tells My Weekly Preview. “I’ve got to get back on the bike every day again and do lots of training in the lead up.” After starting her professional cycling career as a 20-year-old, Ms Gillow has earned many impressive accomplishments including representing Australia in the 2012 London Olympics. “I’ve got four national championship titles,” she says. “I want to add to those and to go for a fifth.” As part of her training preparations, Ms Gillow will join more than 220 cyclists for the sixth annual Buderim 9 Challenge. She has been named as this year’s ambassador for the event, which raises money for CPL, a disability service which

works to maximise the potential of people of all ages. Previously called Cerebral Palsy League, its name now stands for Choice, Passion and Life. The funds raised from the ride will go directly to supporting children and families on the Sunshine Coast living with cerebral

palsy by providing useful technology, safety aids and money for family days out. This will be Ms Gillow’s first time participating in the charity ride, which is sponsored by Argon Law, and she says she has heard great things and is passionate about the cause.

“It kicks off at 4am for rego so it really shows people’s dedication to get on their bikes for the cause. I’m really excited to be a part of it,” Ms Gillow adds. The event requires participants to tackle either one, five or nine of the Buderim hills, up to 76 kilometres, within a three-hour time period. Raising an impressive $24,000 last year, the ride is expected to be bigger and better this year. Ms Gillow is one of the 37 female entrants who have already registered for the competition and she says she would like to see even more women and girls get into cycling. “There are lots of guys that cycle on the Sunshine Coast so it’s good to encourage females to get on the bike.” New to the event this year is a team challenge, where three riders can sign up to tackle three hills each.

It’s not too late to sign up to the event, with early-bird prices applying until December 10. Visit the B9 website at My Weekly Preview is a proud supporter of the event.

Jessica Chastain’s top tips for perfect red lips US actor Jessica Chastain loves red lipstick and wears it by day without other makeup or by night when she’s glammed up to the max. There’s a shade of red to suit everyone, however, it’s not always the easiest colour to apply. Ms Chastain’s tip is to exfoliate lips with a toothbrush, then apply lip balm. Do the rest of your makeup, wipe off the balm and apply red lipstick, then blot with a tissue. She says it’s the easiest way to apply red lipstick to make it last and if you do it like this, you won’t need a lip liner. Her go-to makeup products include:

Sami Muirhead asks why Australia didn’t do more to save former tennis champ Jelena Dokic from years of abuse at the hands of her father.

Rebecca Grisman says giving is its own reward, so reach out to someone less fortunate this Christmas and let them know they’re not alone.


nbreakable. It is the name of Jelena Dokic’s new book and it is a perfect word to describe this incredible woman. Before hearing Jelena’s story I would have used words such as ‘solemn’, ‘disgruntled’, or ‘complex’ to describe the former tennis champion. After hearing her story, I feel ashamed. The former world number four player tells how many of us were almost entertained watching her abusive father’s crazy press conferences. He was often clearly drunk, and even more often, incredibly angry. Many of us thought Damir Dokic was plain bonkers, but that was all we thought. Did anyone ask what was happening to his daughter behind closed doors? Did anyone ask if he was a fit parent? What was happening was in fact his gutsy daughter was being kicked, spat upon, whipped, and bashed to the point of passing out until she finally left home at 19. Jelena told her harrowing story to a few hundred locals at the Maroochy RSL recently. You could have heard a pin drop in that huge room as she told her story. How could this be true? How did this happen in The Lucky Country? The former refugee told the silent crowd about the awful years that followed her arrival to Australia as a refugee from the former Yugoslavia. Jelena was emotionally tormented on a daily basis by her father and called words such as ‘whore’ from the age of 11. At school she


suffered racism and bullying. Her family were so poor they often went without dinner and all slept on a cockroach-infested mattress in one bedroom in Sydney. When Jelena started earning money from tennis, every cent went to her father. Can you imagine your pride if your child made it to the Wimbledon semi-finals? Jelena was just 17 when she lost to Lindsay Davenport in the year 2000. Her punishment was to be left at Wimbledon where she had to go to sleep with no dinner and hide in a corner of a change room. Her father returned to a hotel room that Jelena was actually paying for. Jelena finally summoned up the courage to leave her abusive father, but before she did so, she signed over millions of dollars to the controlling coach. They no longer speak and Damir lives in Serbia. Jelena became suicidal but has pulled herself back from the dark world of depression. She remains close with her younger brother but her relationship with her mother is understandably strained, considering her mum just stood by and watched the horrid abuse. Jelena’s story is one we should all read, because there is a really important message in it: if you suspect there is a problem in a family, please tell someone. Jelena’s dream is now to have children. I hope this comes true for this amazing woman and I hope holding those bubs helps to heal some of her wounds.

hroughout the year, thousands of volunteers give their time and care across the Sunshine Coast for charities, schools and community groups, demonstrating that the spirit of giving is always alive and not reliant on the season. I’m always impressed by their enthusiasm and expertise, as so many volunteers have boundless experience from all walks of life and often do all they do for the sense of belonging and achievement, not simply to fill their time. Giving is its own reward for many. I love the festive feel of Christmas and the promise of new beginnings as a new year approaches. I am up for carols at our local church, neighbourhood tours of houses festooned with lights and the madness of a shopping centre still open at midnight. My child has grown up in a home that resembles a Christmas shop when the decorations go up and is brainwashed by songs from long-gone crooners into imagining that Santa Claus just might bring him a snowball or a lump of coal, depending on how well behaved he has been all year. He’ll burst into his favourite tune, Jingle Bells, any time it plays on shuffle, no matter what month it is. I just read that Australian parents spend up to $1000 per child on gifts and it made me ponder the real value of presents, being present and focusing on what truly matters to a child. Another tradition we’ve always had is that each Christmas he chooses

pre-loved toys and books of his own to give away to a good cause, understanding that sharing them is just as rewarding as having enjoyed them for a time. For many people, the festive party season is not so joyful and so it’s also a time for remembering that others may need a little solace. RSL and community clubs throughout our region host collections of gifts or non-perishable goods to support veterans, families and children in need. Many charities including The Smith Family, The Salvos, SunnyKids, beyondblue and Suncoast Care have volunteering and visiting programs, even virtual forums online, over Christmas to spread cheer and ensure that there will be food and a friendly face for everyone. You can reach out at any time to donate time, funds or goods. You can even donate a Christmas dinner this year through a wonderful initiative called Project Rudolph! For just $45, Aussie Farmers Direct, Aussie Farmers Foundation and Foodbank will deliver a Project Rudolph meal box of roast meat, vegetables and Christmas cake to a family who may otherwise go without. They expect to distribute more than 1600 this year and take donations until December 22 at So if you usually give to charity instead of buying presents, this would make a fitting gift. This year and into 2018, I wish for you a peaceful and happy time of memorable and meaningful moments.

THE ONLY WAY IS UP HeliMods founder Will Shrapnel has had plenty of success, but there is still much this Coast local wants to achieve. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.



o say Will Shrapnel is on a roll is an understatement. Named Outstanding Business Person of the Year at the Sunshine Coast Business Awards in November, his company HeliMods also won awards for Excellence in Innovation and Business of the Year, while HeliMods staffer Rohan Driver won Employee of the Year. To top off an incredible year for this Caloundra helicopter modifications business, on November 28 came the announcement that HeliMods will receive a $1 million grant from the Federal Government to develop its life-saving stretcher loading technology. Ask Mr Shrapnel about the secret of his success and his answer is simple: passion and hard work. “From the start I’ve focused on building a business and a culture which is high performance and is passionate about what it does,” he says. “So everyone that works here really believes in the work they do and the value they add to the broader community. LifeFlight’s rescue helicopters are familiar to people on the Coast and are a good example of our work. We receive their new aircraft empty from the factory and we transform them into air ambulances to rescue people or transfer the critically ill. That’s the sort of work our engineers do every day and they are very passionate and motivated people.” Mr Shrapnel has had a number of motivations driving him since he launched HeliMods in 2002 at the age of 25. Firstly, having grown up designing, building and flying model aircraft with his dad, he always knew he wanted to pursue a career in aviation.

“I was always passionate about aviation from a young age,” he says. “There was just always this fascination for flying. I used to not only build, but also design model aircraft from scratch. Dad and I would take them flying and crash them and have to re-build them again.” His second motivation arose out of a desire to see growth in the aviation industry on the Sunshine Coast. “There wasn’t any career opportunity here that was clear or obvious in aerospace when I was young,” he says. “The challenge growing up here on the Coast was you’d logically have to move away to gain skills or experience or study at university. I’m quite proud of what’s been created through HeliMods. We now employ teams of engineers in aerospace design. When I grew up, there wouldn’t have been a single aerospace engineering job here. “My parents were always supportive and realistic that there were limited prospects here on the Coast. There was no university here at that stage and there was a general acceptance that I would move to Brisbane or interstate to study and gain skills and it was almost accepted that I’d have to move internationally to work in the aerospace design field.” Mr Shrapnel studied engineering and business at the University of Queensland at the same time as completing his trade exams in helicopter maintenance. He also trained to gain his fixed wing and helicopter pilot licences. “I don’t do a whole lot of flying these days,” he says. “In the earlier years, when I was doing a lot more trade work, I used to fly over the country fixing and servicing helicopters.

“A Sunshine Coast icon, revitalised.”

“We’d fly from Caloundra to any regional airport where helicopters were based. It was a pretty rich and diverse experience, where I could come to work one day and the following day be flying to South Australia or New South Wales or north Queensland.” Another motivation for Mr Shrapnel to create HeliMods is knowing the work he and his team do makes a contribution towards saving lives, and while he always believed in his vision, he has experienced many moments of self-doubt along the way. “During times of really high growth, high pressure and long working hours you often question why you’re in business,” he says. “Why shouldn’t I just have a standard day job? Ultimately, there’s a lot of reward in delivering important and valuable work. It’s not dissimilar to what I experienced at uni. A lot of uni students question why they’re at uni right about exam times, but when it’s finished and you’ve got the results and are happy with them, everything falls back into place.” Mr Shrapnel’s achievements in building a company of global scale in his home town of Caloundra are even more eye-opening when you consider how busy he’s been on the home front. He has six children under 11 with wife Robyn. “We’ve had plenty of scenarios with newborns or young children that might be unsettled throughout the night,” he says. “Often I’d be coming home from work late night or early morning and Robyn would be up. She’d be up numerous times during the night and we’d catch up and grab sleep where we could. It’s been pretty challenging at times but we always understood it for what it was. We chose to have a large family. We’ve never made a point of complaining about it; it’s an amazing thing to have that

29.indd 1



Mayor Mark Jamieson with Will Shrapnel many kids. While it can be a lot of hard work at times, there are so many great benefits. “Spending time with family during really busy projects has always been a bit of a challenge, but that’s where the Sunshine Coast is such an amazing place to work. You’re not up against long commute times. If you’re doing busy work or work that requires a significant amount of time or attention, you can still enjoy high-quality down time in short bursts.

“I’d still make the time to catch up with the kids at the beach, could still duck out and see a school concert or attend a school event because it’s literally only five minutes’ drive from my work.” Mr Shrapnel says there are amazing plans on the horizon for HeliMods but won’t give his secrets away just yet. Suffice it to say, the HeliMods we see today is only the start of what’s to come. Having achieved so much so early in his career, Mr Shrapnel has some good advice to share with his children on achieving success and happiness in their own lives. “I think first and foremost, to aim to do what you enjoy,” he says. “That’s just key. Then be prepared to work hard to achieve whatever it is you are aiming for. Don’t expect instant success, but certainly be ambitious. It’s really important to aim high and back yourself to get there. “My career hasn’t been without its challenges, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I want to see the continued growth of engineering and high-value technical work here on the Coast. I am really passionate about what opportunities we can offer new industries here on the Coast. I really want to do whatever I can to create more interesting and diverse work here to see the Coast’s economic diversity and complexity grow. “As a leader of an organisation, I’ve aimed wherever possible to lead by example, to set high standards. I aim to inspire and empower people to reach their potential. I take a very positive and proactive approach to the problems we try to solve and the challenges we face. As the HeliMods meme says: keep calm and keep engineering. I’m a very calm person. With six kids and running this business, if I wasn’t a calm and considered and level-headed person, there’s no way I could be where I am today.”

THE TIDE COMES IN WITH TAY OSKEE’S NEW SINGLE LIKE WAVES After his win at the Bluesfest Byron Bay busking competition and recent support for Kim Churchill on his Weight Falls national tour, Tay Oskee once again continues to be on the rise with his new single Like Waves. The song is a beautiful tune, which features Mr Oskee’s distinctive dynamic changes and souring uplifting melodies. Like Waves came about as the singer was living in the suburbs of south Brisbane and it was being surrounded by everyday modern life that triggered the idea for the song.

“I feel very lucky that I had the opportunity to grow up surrounded by the Yolngu culture of north-east Arnhem Land and I think this is why I’ve always felt a deep connection to nature and having an alternative lifestyle,” he says. “I never saw myself working a nine-tofive job, saving money, buying a house and starting a family as modern society wants to tell us to do. Mental health problems are at an all-time high and it seems everyone is stressed out. On top of this we are destroying our planet at an unprecedented rate. “This song is an anthem for those people who are stuck in that life that modern society has moulded them into, but want to change. It’s about having the courage to say no, to stand up and live a life that is good for you and our beautiful earth.” Mr Oskee’s live shows have been praised for their incredible dynamics with the ability to leave crowds silent while he weaves through beautiful ballads of love and hope. But in the next breath, he can have the whole crowd in a dancing frenzy with his infectious build-ups and rhythms. See Tay Oskee at Solbar in Maroochydore on December 8 at 6pm. Entry is free.

The Radiators have been together for almost 40 years and will be bringing their trademark energy to Caloundra. During the early period of the band’s career they were breaking house records at all the pubs, RSLs and leagues clubs they played. It was a relentless effort playing six nights per week for 40 to 50 weeks of the year. The band never skimped on PA and lighting, setting the standard for others to follow and creating the classic sweaty rock atmosphere that few could match. The rigours of touring and the passing years have not diminished the Radiators’s spark and they still tour extensively, playing an average of 100 shows per year. The Radiators are at the Caloundra RSL Function Room on December 9 from 7.30pm. Tickets are $25 and are available at

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER Pier 33 provides a new dining experience while honouring its location’s rich past in Mooloolaba. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


ne of the Coast’s newest venues is making waves for all the right reasons. Situated on the Mooloolah River, Pier 33 offers diners the perfect spot to enjoy a meal or a sneaky drink with priceless views of the waterways and the yachts, cruisers and trawlers that line the pier. The stunning venue, which has kept the iconic overhead sail façade that has made the long-standing building a landmark in its own right, is the creation of co-owners Andrew Hohns, Hew Williams, John Robertson and Trevor Hohns. Cat Hohns is the functions and events manager. When Mr Robertson, who is also the director of OGE Group Architects, and Andrew Hohns caught wind the hospitality business The Yacht Club Mooloolaba was winding up, they were quick to contact the landlord to pitch a takeover. Before the lease was signed in midAugust, Mr Roberston’s mind was already in overdrive with plans to maximise the view and enhance the venue with a strong new identity while being respectful to its origins as the former home of the Mooloolaba Yacht Club, which was formed in 1967 and vacated the building in 2009.

“I hadn’t been to The Yacht Club for a few years, so when we went back up there, it brought back a whole lot of memories for me,” Mr Hohns says. “It has been a great experience transforming it in a way that people who had been there a year ago will think ‘wow,’ but it also pays homage to the previous venues and the building itself.” Pier 33 has a sophisticated simplicity to it, with crisp white walls and pops of navy blue enhancing the small amount of nautical memorabilia throughout the venue. Mr Hohns says the original island bar was ideal for their vision, so they had it

resurfaced to match the new interior design. They also left the outdoor areas and established palm trees to ensure diners can continue to enjoy the ambience outdoors on temperate days. “The ideas for the space came very much from the inspiration of the setting around us. We wanted to keep it light, clean and bright and didn’t want the focus to be on the interior,” he says. “Rather, we wanted people to feel as close to the water as possible and really bring that beautiful outside in. We never wanted it to feel like a stuffy, fine dining

restaurant. This is a space where families can come after a morning at the beach and enjoy lunch together and business people can pop in for a bite between meetings. While the menu, designed by Sunshine Coast native Simon Taylor, is heavy on seafood, Mr Hohn says it is much more than just a seafood restaurant. Mr Taylor has travelled the world honing his craft and has worked under some of the best chefs in the business – he has worked at the renowned Flying Fish in Sydney and Jacques Reymond in Melbourne. Now, he is pursuing his passion for sourcing fresh, local produce and making it sing on the plate. Diners can see the trawlers their catch has come from. You don’t get much fresher than that. Menu offerings include snack-sized plates, kids meals and large, shared-dining meals that Mr Hohns says are designed to get guests interacting with one another while creating points of discussion while they dine. The venue can cater for 100 diners with a separate private dining room, decks for ultimate waterfront dining, and a casual bar area with lawns for snacks and cocktails. The second storey holds a function space that can service 100 people.

Is it just us or did the last term of school fly by? While the region’s beaches and parks will be beckoning these summer holidays, for busy parents it can be challenging to keep the kids entertained for six whole weeks of schoolfree time. We are here to help. My Weekly Preview’s regular holiday guide offers lots of ideas to keep the kids occupied. There’s Christmas fun and high-flying activities plus unusual adventures, and lots more. Enjoy!

GIVEAWAY Our friends at Lake Kawana Community Centre are giving away a family pass (two adults and two children) to the 12.30pm performance of Chores on December 17. To enter, visit and click on the Win tab. Full terms and conditions are also available online.

WHEN CLEANING UP IS NO LONGER A CHORE Every parent knows the pain of trying to get the kids to clean their rooms. And every child knows how annoying it is to be asked to clean their rooms every day. When you look at this dilemma through the comedic eyes of Julian Roberts and Patrick Heilmann in the hilarious show Chores, you may never have the same argument again. In fact, tidying your room might become a lot of fun. Mr Roberts, who has been devoted to slapstick comedy and circus arts since the age of 14, is a dynamic entertainer and when his energy and creative mind combined with Mr Heilmann’s, Chores instantly became a hit with audiences of all ages. “Chores is the return to the good old days of pure entertainment, where bringing joy is

priority number one,” he says. “Operating at an extremely high LPM (laughs per minute), the show gives you a handful of moments to take a breath, but those moments will be filled with gasps in awe at the variety of top shelf circus acrobatics on display. “This show is unique because it doesn’t matter if you’re two years old or 99 years old, nothing is written to go over your head or to be just for kids; everybody gets it. We all posses an inner child. We have performed for adults and children our whole lives and adults really are just big kids when you allow them to be. But put them in a room full of the contagious and uninhibited laughter of children, adults leave elated and telling their friends that they must see Chores. Not for their kids, but for them.”

Mr Roberts says Chores takes a look at the funny side of trying to get your kids to clean their rooms. “When children watch Chores, they relate directly to the characters on stage and the injustices they face as a messy room stands between them and their fun,” he says. “Whereas the adults relate the show to their own kids’ behaviour, and the similarities are hilarious. It’s funny of course when not at home – as we all know, when kids are cleaning their rooms there can be a fine line between tragedy and comedy.” The show is full of surprises, including a toilet paper cannon, juggling, a big stretchy ghost, super-high unicycle, spinning wheels and a high-tension, high-altitude walking of the plank. Mr Roberts, who recently completed training with master clown Philippe Gaulier in Paris, says the duo would perform every second of the day if they could. “Performing live is literally the best part of our day. No amount of Facebook could replace the smiles and looks on the faces of our audiences,” he says. “Seeing kids and parents alike functioning at maximum enjoyment really gives us joy and fulfilment. To put it simply, as soon as we finish we want to do it again. We are completely and un-apologetically addicted. “This is a show your kids will talk about for ages and it’s not only about how much fun chores can be, but also how chores can be so much fun. This will be ammo for you to get your kids to clean their rooms for the next year, so don’t miss out on that opportunity.” There will be two performances of Chores at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on January 17 at 10am and 12.30pm. Tickets are $15 and are available from 114 Sportsmans Parade, Bokarina Visit

CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR SET TO EXPLODE AT AUSSIE WORLD On the eve of Christmas Eve, the best place to get into the festive spirit on the Sunshine Coast is Aussie World, which has prepared to ignite the night with a fun-filled event for the whole family. Aussie World chief operating officer Aaron Flanagan says the December 23 Christmas Spectacular is one of the theme park’s most popular events of the year. “Attendance at this event keeps growing every year and we are quite confident that there is no other celebration

on the Sunshine Coast where guests can meet Santa and Mrs Claus, come face-toface with Christmas characters, enjoy roving carollers, watch the fireworks, meet the Aussie Kids and watch our spectacular Christmas show,” he says. Guests will also enjoy snow, pyrotechnics, laser shows, a musical fireworks display, Christmas lights, live entertainment and so much more. Mr Flanagan says guests will also have full access to all of the rides and attractions. “There’s so much to do, I suspect that our guests may struggle to do it all in one night.” Mr Flanagan says Aussie World has held a number of night time events this year and guests are embracing the idea of spending the evening being entertained at the theme park. “Events like Ride the Night and Halloween have been warmly embraced by local families. There is no doubt that the theme park takes on a whole new atmosphere at night – people really love the fact that they can knock off work and enjoy a relaxing and safe night of fun at Aussie World,” he says. Gates open at 5.30pm and the fun starts at 6pm until 9.30pm with tickets starting at just $26 for concession holders. 73 Frizzo Road, Palmview Visit

Anthony Ward, Ord Minnett Buderim.



he Santa Claus rally is on. It’s that time of year when the stock market statistically makes the greatest percentage gains for the year. This year is on track for the ASX to finish December on a high, with the All Ords index breaking through the 6100 level for the first time since the GFC. However, the big question is, “What’s in store for next year?” Overall, we expect a low double-digit percentage return from the Australian equity market in 2018. This compares with a 9.4 per cent rise in the S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index, which includes dividends, so far in 2017. The domestic economic backdrop is unlikely to play a defining role in equity market outcomes in 2018, a view that hinges

on our expectation for the coming year to be ‘more of the same’. Economists at our global research partner expect economic growth to improve to an annualised rate of 2.8 per cent from 2.4 per cent, but they also note the bulk of the improvement stems from LNG exports, which will have little effect on the broader economy. Unemployment is expected to hold around current levels at 5.5 per cent, albeit with a deteriorating mix as the part-time share of employment rises. The consumer will stay on the back foot, caught in the uncomfortable grip

“The domestic economic backdrop is unlikely to play a defining role in equity market outcomes” of low wage growth and high household debt. The Reserve Bank of Australia will hold its benchmark cash rate steady, which will stave off the need for balance sheet repair. Central bank governor Philip Lowe underlined this view in a recent speech

where he noted “there is not a case for a near-term adjustment in monetary policy”. We expect the Australian dollar to slide across the course of 2018 as the US Federal Reserve raises its fed funds rate four times and the RBA stands pat. Further weakness in the currency will support offshore earners, as well as overall economic activity, and this key theme supports a number of our stock preferences, for example, Brambles and Westfield. Closer to home, AGL Energy is the key beneficiary of higher wholesale prices, which are set to ratchet higher as the electricity market tightens over summer. At the other end, our least-preferred stock is Qantas. Many in the market expect the carrier’s domestic division margins to match the 15 to 20 per cent enjoyed by US full-service airlines, but we see this as unlikely given lax discipline on capacity and faltering passenger yields. Our forecast for the Australian stock market as measured by the ASX200 index is a level of 6300 for calendar year 2018. This is our base case forecast, while our bull case forecast is 6650.

AIRPORT LEASE SIGNED Palisade Investment Partners has signed a 99-year lease to taken control of the Sunshine Coast Airport. The long-term lease means Palisade is responsible for operating, investing in, and developing the airport, as well as overseeing future expansion of both domestic and international routes. Palisade Investment director and Sunshine Coast Airport Pty Ltd board member, Mike Reynolds, says the airport is a key asset. “Sunshine Coast Airport has been the fastest growing airport in the country for more than two consecutive years, and it sits at the centre of one of Australia’s most dynamic regions,’’ he says. Under the agreement, council will be responsible for facilitating the airport expansion project. Due for completion in 2020, Palisade will then assume control of the new runway and associated infrastructure. Palisade will be responsible for all future development projects, including terminal upgrades, during the term of the lease.

You’re keen to escape somewhere soon. But – with Mercury reversing through your travel zone – expect delays and disruptions before you take off. Plenty of patience (not one of your strengths) and thorough planning are the keys.

Saturn and retrograde Mercury are visiting your ‘money-from-others’ zone, so financial matters are on your mind and your favourite word at the moment is (or should be) ‘thrifty’. If you’re expecting funds from others, be prepared to wait.

Gregarious Geminis love nothing better than a good old chin-wag. But – with Mercury in retro mode – garrulous gossip and indiscreet chatter could get you into gigantic trouble. So think things through and choose your words wisely.

Avoid being a clingy and complacent crab. This week it’s time to be independent and make progressive decisions on your own – especially at work. If you stick to old ideas and outdated routines, then stagnation will set in.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




Single? Don’t go looking for love in the same old places. Be adventurous and cast your net wide. The more unconventional a potential partner is, the better. Already attached? Love won’t flourish unless you add a fresh ingredient to the romance menu.

There’s so much happening involving home and family this week that it will be hard to keep on top of everything. Others are relying on you, so don’t promise more than you can deliver. And don’t be too set about how the week should proceed.

Mercury is reversing through the area of your horoscope that rules the internet, education and all forms of communication. So you may encounter problems at work or school; with online trolls; or with unpleasant people on social media.

With Uranus stirring up your horoscope, changes to your daily routine will put an extra pep in your workday step. And take a close look at your values. Do you need to let go of people, possessions or attitudes that have passed their used-by date?





This week will work best if you do something out of character for a spontaneous Sagittarian – think before you speak. Otherwise (with Mercury reversing through your sign) your tendency to put your foot in your mouth could land you in hot water.

Are wonderful things happening to everyone else? Do you feel under-appreciated? Avoid being a cranky critic Capricorn. With the sun, Venus, Saturn and retro Mercury visiting your seclusion zone, success has certainly been slowed down.

You’ll feel restless this week and your boredom threshold will be at an all-time low. You’re not in the mood to be told what to do. So make sure you have a project to channel all that energy into, otherwise you’ll drive yourself (and others) crazy.

You need to be extra careful with cash this week Pisces. You’re feeling impulsive and won’t require much encouragement to shop up a storm, as the sun and Uranus boost your pre-festive spirits and your spontaneous spending gene.

Former tennis champion Mark Kratzmann turns his hand to property development and his heart to helping the poor. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


e has travelled the world as a professional tennis player and seen many beautiful corners of the world, but for Mark Kratzmann, nothing can compare to Picnic Point right here on the Sunshine Coast. Mr Kratzmann, whose tennis career spanned from 1983 to 1995, has fond memories of the quiet waterfront area near Maroochydore after holidaying there as a young child. “I’m from a little town near Murgon and we didn’t get away on many holidays, so the one I took to Picnic Point when I was really small, maybe about six, I just remember how beautiful the area was and I guess that sat with me for a lot of years,” he says. “When I was ready to stop running around the world doing sports stuff, I knew I wanted to settle on the Coast and that was the ideal spot to be. It is peaceful and still very close to everything.” During his successful tennis career, he was ranked world number one for both junior singles and doubles, winning the Boys’ Singles tournaments at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open in 1984. Mr Kratzmann first began buying properties in 1992, with his first on Bradman

Mr Kratzmann has joined forces with Habitat for Humanity and for every apartment that is sold in The Ivy development, he will donate enough money to the international charity to build a home in the Bawana slum in

Artist’s impression of The Ivy Avenue. It wasn’t until six years ago when he returned from Hong Kong and a career in banking and finance, that he began to enter the bigger realm of property development. With a few developments already up his sleeve, Mr Kratzmann’s latest – The Ivy Picnic Point – is a passion project for many reasons. Situated on a north-east facing block in Picnic Point, not only is it the dream location Mr Kratzmann has spent the last two years searching for, but he’ll use it to change the way he does business.

Delhi, India. He recently returned from a trip to India to secure the partnership and announced the initiative last week along with a commitment that it will become a fixture of The Kratzmann Group from now on. “There are 6000 shanty homes in this slum and Habitats for Humanity has already built 500 houses and their goal is to turn all of the shanties into proper homes. This is how people buying property on the Sunshine Coast can help to make that a reality,” he says. “It is heartbreaking to see how these people live and this is a way we can help.” Mr Kratzmann describes The Ivy as “a dream 40 years in the making” and he is so excited about what the site will be transformed into, that he plans to live there with his wife.

The Ivy will feature 37 apartments including two penthouses, as well as large common spaces for residents to relax and entertain guests. “It’s not often a site like this one comes along, so I knew it was important to do it right and create a luxury development that delivered a high standard of living. “I assembled a talented team of people who I believe are the best in the business and gave them the freedom to be creative and deliver their best work, and I think the incredible concept they’ve come up with really speaks for itself.” The complex features a communal barbecue area, lap pool, steam room and gym, with all apartments incorporating Smeg and Miele appliances. The penthouses boast a glass skybridge that connects the living quarters in the front tower with the bedrooms in the rear tower. Mr Kratzmann says it is something he has never seen before and shows how innovation played a huge role in the design process. The exterior hanging gardens and timber textures are a nod to the natural surrounds and Mr Kratzmann says eight of the apartments have already been snapped up by local and interstate buyers.

Local engineering firm Covey Associates was recognised at the Queensland UDIA Awards for its work on two groundbreaking Sunshine Coast projects.


ovey Associates has been a familiar company name in the Sunshine Coast region for 27 years for providing engineering services to significant local projects and lending its expertise to some of our most familiar, much-loved places. This year the locally based team shone at the Queensland Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Awards of Excellence as four projects were recognised. Covey partnered in winning two awards – the coveted Consultants’ Excellence Award for its long-term work with the developers of Parklakes II at Bli Bli, and the Residential Care Award with Woombye Care Inc. Parklakes II also achieved a finalist placing for the Environmental Excellence Award and the Master Planning Award. Woombye Care Inc. was a finalist for the President’s Award. Director of Covey Associates, Kevin Covey, is justly proud of his team and the groundbreaking innovations in environmental and water management it has realised at the Parklakes II masterplanned residential community. “The major feature at Parklakes II is the significant floating wetland system which is 2100 square metres in size, making it the largest stormwater treatment system of its kind in the world,” he says. “It is attractive and practical, filtering and ensuring the health of the five-hectare lake throughout the estate and it has attracted worldwide attention as a leading model for its design and environmental sustainability.” In another first, the University of the Sunshine Coast and Covey have partnered to create a fully funded $350,000

Kevin Covey and Woombye Care staff at the awards research program for the floating wetlands, including a PhD scholarship to enable a graduate student to work alongside the team. It’s a major testament to Covey’s research-based approach that the teaching institution has partnered with an industry leader to enable the brightest future community of engineers to learn from the best. “We have presented to several global conferences and events and hosted many research teams interested in both the technical and aesthetic aspects of the floating wetlands, which has also already created a major new habitat for native birds

and wildlife – it’s been a huge success in every aspect for the environment,” Mr Covey said. Alongside the extensive lake at Parklakes II, Covey designed walking tracks and bushland reserves linked to the Bli Bli town centre, native tree planting and landscaping, and an Avenue of Honour commemorating Australian conflicts and peacekeeping exercises. This living memorial spurs heartfelt feedback from residents and visitors of all ages. Another exemplary project recognised by the State awards was Woombye Care Inc. The non-profit, non-denominational care and accommodation facility for elderly and disabled residents was established in 1986 and is located between the towns of Woombye and Nambour. Woombye Care has experienced strong community demand and focuses on accepting older residents with dementia and younger patients with mental health issues. Its rural setting and nature reserve with large leafy trees is home to many native birds, creating a tranquil place for residents to enjoy being outdoors. Mr Covey, a voluntary Board Member and Chairman for Woombye Care, believes that ensuring residents have a sense of connectivity to the outside natural world is important to supporting their wellbeing. “We’re very aware that a peaceful outlook matters to people living or working in care and offers respite in every sense of the word to residents and their families,” he says. This focus on integrating environmental elements to create a sense of place for people and communities is clearly an objective for Mr Covey and Covey Associates in designing every one of their projects.

with MWP’s man in the water

Roll up, roll up, the show is about to start with the Pipe Masters kicking off, and the world title will be decided. It will be a close one! The prediction in swell seems solid from what I am seeing, so game! How good was the women’s event last week. Man, the top ladies were ripping it including our own Keely Andrew, who has qualified again for next year. Locally, there will be a few waves around, but beware of that guy in the red suit –whatever you do don’t drop in on him. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend watching the Pipe Masters. Don’t over do it, or over do it. Whatever works! Catch ya!
