bedarra. the perfect aspect

This is the precinct that many people have had their eye on. Some say it’s the perfect aspect. What we can say is that Bedarra, our latest residential release is uniquely set out on a beautiful peninsula of lakeside land that offers multiple aspects commanding broad lake vistas to parklands and the boardwalks of the Sarina Precinct. With the release of our Bedarra Precinct also comes a new, premium range of waterfront homesites, facing east with panoramic views across water to our forest heritage area. It’s a prized location,

that unfortunately features the last direct, north facing water homesites within Sunshine Cove. Of course there is also be an array of park front, terrace and laneway allotments providing a great architectural and lifestyle diversity within Bedarra’s total of 138 homesites. Bedarra the perfect finish to the development of our community across the Sunshine Cove Way Bridge.

FROM THE EDITOR

T

he Sunshine Coast has undergone significant changes in the past five years. And, there is no sign of this slowing down. Earlier this month, Mayor Mark Jamieson handed down the 2017 State of the Region report. He described 2017 as a landmark year for the Coast and outlined achievements ranging from development projects through to the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast, which was celebrated by 35,000 people at 98 events. Employment is up 11,500 jobs in the 12 months to September, and the region recorded an average annual economic growth of 4.09 per cent – one percentage higher than the national rate. As this milestone year draws to a close, we take a look at the projects and people who are helping to shape the future of our region and where they see the Coast in the next 50 years. The story’s on page 10. With smart choices, sustainable development, improved public transport and infrastructure, I believe that the Sunshine Coast can be a liveable region in the future that blends environmentalawareness with growth. Time will tell. Speaking of time, this year has flown. If you are looking for ways to celebrate the New Year, we’ve got some great events in this week’s My time section, starting on page 31. As you ring in 2018, stay safe and have fun. The entire MWP team wishes you and your family a happy and healthy new year.

QUICK CHAT

AUSTRALIAN MADE Where do you live? Peregian Beach. Best suburb on the Coast, and probably the world. First job? Checkout chick at Coolum Coles. I still work there actually. What are you currently working on? I’m currently writing songs so we can keep moving forward as a band. I’m also getting more into the business side of music, which is interesting and difficult. Your family includes: My mum, sister and my stepdad. My dad lives in Brisbane. First car? I don’t have a car yet, but hopefully when I do it’ll be a sick car. Favourite book? The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It was a book I really liked as a kid, and when I grew older, the metaphors in it made a lot more sense. There’s some really cool drawings in it too.

Favourite song? Nice Day to Go to the Pub by Cosmic Psychos.

Musician

BIO Eamon Sandwith is the lead singer of Sunshine Coast band The Chats. He started the band last year while still in high school with his mates Pricey and Matt. Recently, their song Smoko went viral, reeling in 1.5 million Facebook views. Fans have heralded it our new national anthem and The Chats are now headlining gigs and organising an interstate tour in the new year.

Best day in your life? The day I turned 18. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? Once again, the day I turned 18. It’s like a whole new world. Not in the way that you’re suddenly an adult or whatever, but that you can walk into any venue, pub, or bottle-o and you’re allowed to do whatever you want in there (to some extent). Your greatest regret? I don’t have any regrets, that’s stupid.

“When I was a child, AC/DC taught me it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n’ roll”

What are you reading now? A book called Songs in the Key of Z. It’s about a bunch of songwriters who really pushed the boundaries of composition and structure to make songs that were considered weird and ridiculous in their time.

Eamon Sandwith

there’s only a handful of venues that will actually put on a good gig every few months or so. The Sunshine Coast’s live music scene definitely needs to be improved.

Best advice you’ve been given? When I was a child, AC/DC taught me it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n’ roll. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Definitely Peregian Park. I spent quite a lot of my youth there and I can’t help but feel somewhat attached to the place. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I’d make more venues where people can go and see live music, especially all-ages venues. I remember when I was underage, I was always annoyed that there was nowhere to see live bands on the Coast as a kid, and still nothing has changed. Even being 18,

What achievement are you most proud of? Kochie said on Sunrise the other morning that he likes my mullet. I think that’s an achievement in itself. You are happiest when? I’m happiest when I’m playing in The Chats, whether it be at a gig or if we’re just practising in the shed.

What frustrates you the most? When I buy a pie at the servo and it’s half cold. It’s a real kick in the guts. How do you deal with your frustrations? Maybe I’ll go back to the servo and complain, maybe I’ll just buy another one. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? I’m 18 at the moment, so I’d probably tell myself: keep it up mate, you’re doing all right. Tea or coffee? I don’t drink tea or coffee, but I don’t mind a Breaka iced coffee. But it’s got nothing on a Breaka chocolate milk or a Breaka lime milk. NRL or AFL? Definitely NRL. Up the Broncos.

FEATURE STORY

WHERE WILL WE BE IN 50 YEARS? With so many game-changing projects underway, there’s a palpable sense of anticipation on the Sunshine Coast, but the challenge is ensuring progress without becoming like another Gold Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

ARTIST’S IMPRESSION

T

his has been a year of reflection for many across the region as we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast. But there is also a lot more to celebrate than our history. The region is undergoing an unprecedented time of growth and prosperity, with billions of private and government dollars being invested into infrastructure as well as residential and business developments, which will strengthen the region’s standing into the future and take major steps towards being able to house renowned demographer Bernard Salt’s estimated population of 550,000 by 2040. The Sunshine Coast is currently one of the strongest performing regions in Queensland, with projects like the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital, the Maroochydore CBD and the airport expansion strengthening economic development and job growth in the area. So, as 2017 comes to an end, My Weekly Preview asks some of the Coast’s movers and shakers what they envision the region will look like five decades into the future.

10.indd 1

MARK JAMIESON Mayor, Sunshine Coast Council “In essence, we will be the magnet for big thinkers, experienced leaders and world-class talent.” Mayor Mark Jamieson says the region is reaping the rewards of the collaborative Regional Economic Development Strategy, which was developed in 2013, and will guide the region until 2033. “We have stuck with the plan, with a focus on seven high-value industries, with matching infrastructure in the form of game-changer projects, and have a determined focus on its implementation. We haven’t looked back since. “We are one of the fastest growing regions in the country and we are successfully building a new economy based on a clear 20-year economic plan which presents potential investors with multiple options and avenues for business growth and expansion.” Cr Jamieson says the seven high-value industries – health and wellbeing; education and research; knowledge industries and professional services; tourism, sport and leisure; agribusiness; clean technologies; aviation and aerospace – will offer the greatest success and higher paying jobs for the region well in the future. “We will have a well-established heart of the Coast – our new CBD at Maroochydore –

which will bring enormous economic value to our region as well as providing us with a huge range of entertainment, cultural and residential options,” he says. “The smart and new technologies, and corporations who build them, will base themselves here. Our expanded Sunshine Coast Airport will be servicing passengers from around the world and providing local businesses and producers improved export opportunities to more markets. We will have thousands of extra hectares of land purchased via the Environment Levy and thousands more Land for Wildlife properties. “And it’s a must that the inter-urban break, separating us from Brisbane and Moreton, is still protected. In essence, we will be the magnet for big thinkers, experienced leaders and world-class talent.”

BEN SIMPSON Regional manager, Sunshine Coast Stockland “I would like to see the Sunshine Coast become Australia’s ‘Silicon Beach’, providing a hub for major technology companies and innovation.” Sunshine Coast Stockland regional manager Ben Simpson is at the helm of providing thousands of homes for families in Aura, Bells Reach, Brightwater and Oceanside, which incorporates Bokarina Beach, Birtinya Town

Centre and the Sunshine Coast Health Precinct, as well as injecting millions of dollars into new shopping centres, retirement villages and business parks. Stockland, in collaboration with its partner builders, expects to deliver homes for another 1000 families throughout these communities in 2018, as well as a $63-million vertical retirement village at Birtinya and the highly-anticipated Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre. “The Sunshine Coast market continues to be attractive to new and existing industries. There is a thriving business community and excellent government support for new business investment and ideas,” Mr Simpson says. If steady growth continues, we could have a population of close to 700,000 in 50 years’ time, he adds. “By then, we could see the Sunshine Coast evolve into one of the healthiest and most sustainable regions in the world. “In 50 years, I see the Sunshine Coast as still a distinct region, separated from Brisbane by the inter-urban break and featuring a vibrant city centre in Maroochydore that still celebrates the Coast being a ‘village of villages’. With our access to a skilled workforce and resources, the expansion of the airport and improved transport and road linkages, we will become a more attractive investment hot spot for agribusiness, manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, professional, scientific and technical services industries over time.

18/12/2017 11:59:09 AM


FEATURE STORY “I would like to see the Sunshine Coast become Australia’s ‘Silicon Beach’, providing a hub for major technology companies and innovation.” Mr Simpson says there are real opportunities for the Coast to be a pioneer in autonomous vehicle technology, high-speed trains, going off the grid as a region and potentially inventing and manufacturing new technologies. “We are now seeing a far greater level of collaboration between the various levels of government and the business community on key issues that affect our region. This makes the Sunshine Coast a region that’s far more powerful and effective when it comes to attracting funding and investment, and driving positive change.”

JOHN KNAGGS SunCentral CEO Maroochydore City Centre “Life on the Coast will be richer, but just as laidback.” SunCentral CEO John Knaggs is at the helm of the greenfield Maroochydore City Centre, which is in the first stage of civil construction. Underground infrastructure, including pipes for the state-of-the-art automated waste collection system, is almost complete and 2018 will see the construction of roads, a new park, lighting, street furniture and landscaping. SunCentral is negotiating with third parties to bring developments worth hundreds of millions of dollars to the new CBD, and of course the long-term jobs that go with such investment. Mr Knaggs says the sheer scale of investment in the region is unprecedented and follows years of careful planning. “The Sunshine Coast University Hospital is a huge jobs generator and we’ll see more growth with the new CBD, expansion of the airport and plans for the under-sea broadband cable. This activity has created a surge in confidence which in turn is encouraging business to invest in the Sunshine Coast’s future,” he says. “Our population is expected to reach 550,000 by 2040, so the Sunshine Coast will

clearly grow, but I believe it will evolve without compromising our beautiful environment. The new CBD will be the vibrant capital of the Sunshine Coast. It will be linked to other regional population hubs by light rail and to Brisbane, possibly by high-speed passenger rail, while automated transport will be the norm. “Fifty years is a long way into the future. By then we’ll have a raft of new technologies impacting on development and growth that haven’t even been considered today.” Mr Knaggs says the biggest change for the Coast will be maturing as a major “Australian city-region” with a greater presence nationally and internationally. “A sophisticated transport system including light rail will feature prominently – it has to. But the Sunshine Coast can’t do everything alone. It needs the support of the state and federal governments. Politicians have approved plans to increase our population, but there needs to be a matching commitment to invest in infrastructure, including passenger rail, light rail, and cultural facilities such as a convention and entertainment centre. We are already behind on these things. It has to change, and it will.”

BRUCE HARPER AVID Property Group Queensland general manager “If the Coast can expand its ‘Smart City’ program and become a hub for emerging industries, we will see the region’s job market grow exponentially, benefiting current and future residents.” AVID Property Group is working to deliver the Harmony masterplanned community in the heart of the Sunshine Coast which, when completed in 15 years, will become home to 15,000 residents. AVID Queensland general manager Bruce Harper says the Coast is currently one of the strongest performing regions in Queensland with projects like the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital, SunCentral Maroochydore and the airport expansion strengthening economic development and

job growth in the area. “As a result, residential property demand is surging, and the population of the Sunshine Coast is projected to grow to almost 515,000 by 2036 (from 319,000 in 2011). It’s no wonder that the Coast is becoming a magnet for people looking for a change, with the relaxed coastal lifestyle and enviable climate – the Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s best lifestyle locations,’’ he says. Mr Harper says with the region set for a “population boom for the next decade,” there will continue to be opportunities in the development industry. “In the next 50 years, the Sunshine Coast will continue to grow, but my hope is that the Coast will retain the key characteristics that make it so unique and appealing to families, young professionals and our more mature residential community,” he says. “The Coast’s enviable lifestyle and educated workforce make it an ideal location for emerging digital and smart industries to flourish, and further capitalise on its tourism base over the next 30 to 50 years. “If the Coast can expand its ‘Smart City’ program and become a hub for emerging industries, we will see the region’s job market grow exponentially, benefiting current and future residents.” Mr Harper says moving forward, the region needs to look to developing the local economy, to facilitate job growth and counter the “current commuter dormitory trajectory that might otherwise dominate.”

DIRK LONG Director, Evans Long The Wharf Mooloolaba “The Sunshine Coast will be a place that retains its unique character.” Developers Evans Long are the driving force behind the $10-million revitalisation of The Wharf Mooloolaba. Director Dirk Long says the future for the next 50 years on the Sunshine Coast is looking very bright. “We started the development business seven years ago and at that time, used to do a lot of work in Townsville and around Brisbane

I N S T O R E N O W. . .

– 90 per cent of our work was outside the Sunshine Coast. And now, thanks to key infrastructure like the Sunshine Coast University Hospital coming to the Coast, 75 per cent of our work is now being done here,” Mr Long says. “We are entering into an era where people think differently about living where they want to as opposed to where they work. Offices are becoming more flexible thanks to technology and a greater number of entrepreneurs and larger businesses can choose to work from more of a lifestyle location like the Sunshine Coast. Connection through the submarine cable will only make it more viable to attract businesses like Youi.” Mr Long says he believes the Sunshine Coast Council has the right planning schemes in place to avoid our region ever becoming like the Gold Coast in the future. “The Sunshine Coast in 50 years will be a place that retains its unique character,” he says. “We hear everyone saying, ‘We don’t want to become the Gold Coast’, but in my view, we never will.”

GAME-CHANGER PROJECTS ALREADY UNDERWAY OR COMPLETED • Development of the greenfield Maroochydore City Centre • New Sunshine Coast Airport runway and Australia’s next international airport • Queensland’s largest, grid-connected solar farm • International broadband submarine cable • Aura – Australia’s largest residential development at Caloundra South which will be home to 50,000 people • Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

CALOUNDRA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION

Paddy & Jerry van Driel-Vis

2017 ended with a bang for the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce, which held its combined Business After Hours and Christmas parties at The Shed at Aussie World. It was a great celebration and a fantastic opportunity for local business people to network and catch up with old and new friends. Guests enjoyed dodgem car rides and a visit from Santa and the elves, and a soundtrack of Christmas carols was provided by the soulful Dave Stygall.

The renowned coach, who also helped Jelena Dokic on and off the court when she returned to play in Australia in 2009, will be on the Sunshine Coast early next month. He will be here to help young up-and-comers develop their games and learn more about competing at an elite level. Ingrid McAlister, whose son plays at Kawana Tennis Club, approached Mr Rasheed and was delighted when he agreed to run the two-day camp at the club for up to 24 competitive players aged between 10 and 18 on January 8 and 9. Ms McAlister says the camp will give players, their parents and their coaches access to Mr Rasheed’s expertise, with five-hour court sessions and workshops each day, as well as one-on-one mentoring. It will be held just after

the Brisbane International, where Mr Rasheed will be a commentator for Channel Seven, “Metro areas have access to people like Roger a little bit more than we do up here and we are really excited about having this opportunity,” Ms McAlister says. “Not many young players and their parents get to sit down with a Grand Slam coach and talk about their future and have guidance to set them on the right pathway.” Usually spending up to 38 weeks of the year on tour with his players, Mr Rasheed says he is passionate about engaging with young up-and-comers when he is “back home” and his Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation has a strong focus on disadvantaged communities. “It is important for me to be able to give back and do these clinics,” he says. “I like to hit all the touch points of the players and their community and it will have a ripple effect throughout the region. Unless you are continually going out and getting to metro areas or crossing the border looking for competition, it is hard for regional players to find a high-performance pathway. “Clinics like this will help young regional players to realise what is involved if they want to take competition to the next level and these two days are really valuable to them. “They grab it, use it and it will benefit their coaches as well. It’s a win-win all round.” If there is any advice Mr Rasheed can give to all young tennis players, it is to continue reinventing their game. “You can’t get complacent or lazy in what you are doing. Once you get comfortable, that’s where the dangers are.” Mr Rasheed says he hopes this will signal the start of a long-term relationship with the club and the wider Sunshine Coast community. Limited positions are still available for clinic participants and the general public will have an opportunity to meet Mr Rasheed at the Kawana Tennis Club on January 8 from 6pm. For more information, visit kawanatennisclub.com.au or the Kawana Tennis Club Facebook page.

Sunshine Coast residents and visitors became the first in south-east Queensland to experience the future of transport as the EasyMile EZ10 electric, driverless shuttle carried passengers for two days in Mooloolaba. The eye-catching vehicle operated along the Mooloolaba Esplanade from December 14 to 16. Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson says electric, driverless technology is of interest to the council “in the long term, as we consider transport solutions for our communities.” EasyMile’s Simon Pearce says the demonstration highlights the impressive capabilities and safety features of the EZ10, and the benefits self-driving technology can offer in connecting residents to traditional public transport and improving mobility for those who are unable to drive. “The EZ10 fully autonomous shuttle has a capacity of 12 customers and has been designed to cover short predefined routes through embedded and localisation technologies,” he says. “Using the latest sensory technology, the vehicle can safely respond to environmental changes like moving pedestrians, cyclists and other cars. “Mooloolaba is the first stop, but we look forward to giving other parts of south-east Queensland a chance to experience this new technology for themselves.”

DON’T NEGLECT YOUR PET THIS NEW YEAR’S EVE While New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting nights of the year for humans, it can be one of the most stressful nights for pets. Dogs Queensland is reminding dog owners to plan ahead this New Year’s Eve to ensure pets and people are ready for the celebrations. General manager Rob Harrison says loud noises like fireworks will often prompt dogs try to run from the noise. Mr Harrison says staying at home with your dog on New Year’s Eve is best, but not always realistic. “If you can’t be at home, consider organising a pet sitter. If someone is at home with your furry friend, they can soothe them when loud noises occur.�

A solution for the future of the Brisbane Road car park in Mooloolaba could be on the way. A development application was lodged on December 11 by Abacus Funds Management, which proposes a Material Change of Use to include a supermarket, shopping centre, hotel, bar, indoor sport and recreation facility and an aged care facility. The application on council’s PD Online also requests a car wash. If the application is approved, about 700 new spaces will be controlled by Sunshine Coast Council and a further 300 would be provided for the residential component of the complex. The council has appointed an independent assessment team to consider the application and Cr John Connolly says a paid parking system will be discussed.

PROFILE

MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER Bon Jovi legend Richie Sambora and his talented partner Orianthi make a formidable duo both on and off the stage. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

‘S

incerity’ – it’s not a word that comes to mind when you think of a guitar-playing rock legend. Yet, it’s a word that former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora does not take lightly and he has carried it through his 30-plus year career. “Sincerity. That’s the biggest thing anyone has going from them,’’ he tells My Weekly Preview. “Sincerity is about love – we are coming there to spread our sincerity and our love. That’s what we’re gonna do.” He is talking about his upcoming tour of Australia’s east coast with fellow guitarist and partner Orianthi Panagaris. A success in her own right, Orianthi made headlines around the world for her work with Michael Jackson in 2009 on his ill-fated This Is It comeback tour. “It was an amazing experience working with him,” she reflects. “He was a very kind and inspiring artist. He chose me from YouTube clips and reached out through MySpace. Rehearsing with him was very surreal. It was so sad that he passed, it felt like a crazy dream actually. Michael definitely pushed me to get out of my comfort zone while playing.” The performer, who hails from Adelaide, has also shared the stage with the likes of Santana, Prince and ZZ Top, and she was the first female member of Alice Cooper’s band. Now, Orianthi and Richie have joined forces under the name RSO to release the five-track EP, Rise. It encompasses elements of rock, blues, pop, R&B and country – sounds they will belt out when they perform at The Shed at Downunder Drive on January 11. It is the first time the couple has hit Australian soil since their performance at the 2016 NRL grand final.

Guitar heroes: Richie Sambora and Orianthi on stage “We had a wonderful time as usual, as we always do in Australia,” Sambora says of his last visit to the Sunshine Coast. “I don’t believe I’ve ever had a bad time in Australia so there you go. And the old days, it’s all become a blur.” So, what can fans expect from the show? And how much has changed since Richie’s Bon Jovi guitar-shredding days? “Truly hasn’t,’’ he says. “It’s the same sincerity, and the same throw down. You do the best that you can do – that’s how it hasn’t changed. “I mean, obviously, if you look back and go, I’ve got 30-odd years behind me of all this life experience and everything I’ve experienced in this business, that’s different. “But basically it stays the same because every day you go out and you do your best. Throw down your sincerity and see how that

reacts against the audience that’s there, and see how that works. So it’s a very brave thing.” There is no denying that this model has worked. Richie has sold in excess of 130 million albums worldwide, co-written more than 20 Top 40 hits and 11 Top 10 hits and played to 34 million people. It is a feat that last week earned him, and his former Bon Jovi bandmates, the honour and announcement they will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And, while long-time fans are excited by the news he will perform with Bon Jovi at the Rock Hall ceremony in April, for now Richie is completely focussed on his work with Orianthi. “Between touring, coming out with a new record, and trying to build a great new thing and recording, and a little bit of family, and travel, there is a lot going on.

“There’s two-and-a-half full albums that we have recorded, so it’s just a matter of time before they put [the EPs] all together. We’ve defiantly explored [many of] the genres and hopefully owned them in a way they are sincere enough that people will get the spirit of our recordings.” So, the goods are there, but is it difficult for Richie and Orianthi to live and work together? “That’s a trick question isn’t it?’’ he laughs. “It’s all positive. It’s all shared and we do sit at the kitchen table because that’s where the studio is and it’s always different. Sometimes Ori comes up with stuff, sometimes I come up with stuff, sometimes we come up with stuff together, sometimes there’s other people in the room, sometimes there’s not – it’s all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out.” “We spend a lot of time together but we are so comfortable around each other,” Orianthi adds. “After close to four years, we know what works for both of us. The positives are being able to share experiences together. [I’m] so happy to share the new music with everyone. I’m super proud of our work on this. Working with Richie has been so great. We continue writing all the time together; it comes very naturally. He is an amazing lyricist and writer.” Not bad for a guy who began his musical journey on a less celebrated instrument. “The accordion was my first instrument and I still play it,’’ Richie says. “I just bought a new one not too long ago, it’s fabulous. But I couldn’t get any dates playing accordion so I switched to guitar.”

RSO will perform as part of The Shed’s summer music line-up. For tickets visit aussieworld.com.au.

1 While our 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast celebrations are about to come to a close, we have many completed infrastructure projects from the commemoration year that will provide us with reminders for years to come. In 2017, and this is just a small sample, we’ve opened new projects for our community such as the Rainforest Discovery Centre at Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve at Maleny, the expansion of the Coolum Library, the new skate park at Alexandra Headland, an expanded Sunshine Coast Stadium at Kawana and a roundabout that has greatly improved the traffic flow at Forest Glen. The latest addition is the new amphitheatre at Buderim Village Park, which has already proven to be a wonderful venue by hosting the annual Christmas carols. Council’s vision for this park has seen it grow from a vacant block of land to one of our region’s best district-level parks over the past five years It’s a great complement to the local Buderim lifestyle, as well as a drawcard for visitors. I’m sure it will receive plenty of use throughout 2018 and beyond. Happy New Year everyone!

CHASING A RECORD Locals and holidaymakers can help us secure a place in history by signing their names on a giant anniversary card in an attempt to break a Guinness World Record. You can sign the card, which is hard to miss at 2.4 metres high by 3.6 metres wide, at the New Year’s Eve celebrations at Mooloolaba Beach, marking the finale to what has been a wonderful year-long celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast. Every person who signs will take us one step closer to setting the world record for the most contributions to a greeting card. The current record is 16,707, achieved by National Memorial Arboretum (UK) between October and December 2016, and we’re shooting for 18,000 signatures. If you can’t attend New Year’s Eve in Mooloolaba, don’t worry, you can still make your contribution by signing online. Go to council’s website now to help us beat England.

A PLAN FOR OUR COASTAL PATHWAY

The Coastal Pathway is one of the most popular assets we have on our Sunshine Coast. And it’s about to get even better. A new Coastal Pathway Master Plan will guide council in creating a continuous shared pathway spanning 73 kilometres of our coastline, with design and construction to start on priority stages this financial year. The overall vision of the master plan is to develop a world-class scenic coastal pathway for our community and visitors to enjoy. There are already many stages of the Coastal Pathway in place, making it easier and safer for our community to enjoy an active lifestyle and experience the iconic views, beaches and parks that are such a key part of living in our beautiful region. The Coastal Pathway also helps people connect to local destinations, services and businesses and this access will be improved as the pathway is upgraded and extended. The master plan was endorsed by council at its December Ordinary Meeting following extensive community consultation. Construction will start this financial year on pathway sections at Bokarina and

EAT ON THE STREET

ART, EATS AND OLD STREETS ON PENANG ISLAND Forget the beach and instead hit the streets of Penang. By Adam Schreck, AAP

F

ortune-seekers from China, Europe and India have been drawn to the Malaysian island of Penang for more than two centuries, creating – along with local Malays – a mix that can feel both exotic and seductively familiar. The colonial capital they’ve left behind oozes a hauntingly rustic charm, with colourful street art as much a draw as the historical architecture and one of Southeast Asia’s tastiest street food scenes.

Craftsmen tinker away in Chinesesignposted shophouses nestled up against busy dragon-topped temples swaddled in incense, and gather for rounds of mahjong as the sun sets. “Penang people… are very slow and very relaxed. We are living on a small island so we are happy with the situation,” says local artist Ch’ng Kiah Kiean, who grew up in the shadow of a traditional Chinese clan meeting hall known as a kongsi. “We still keep a simple lifestyle in George Town.”

WANDER THE OLD TOWN There are plenty of tourist-friendly stretches of sand if that’s what you’re looking for. The most popular are along the resort strip of Batu Ferringhi on the island’s northern coast. Where Penang really shines, though, is in the scrappy but alluring lanes of the provincial capital George Town. Its historical centre is listed along with Melaka, another enchanting Malaysian city further down the coast, on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

SOAK UP STREET ART Less than a decade ago, it was George Town’s tumbledown architecture and umbrellatopped cycle rickshaws that first caught visitors’ eyes. Turn a corner these days and you’re more likely than not to be wowed by some selfie-inspiring street art slowly fading away in the tropical sun. Pieces to look out for are the more than four dozen cartoonish steel-rod sculptures by Malaysian artists

Even by the standards of Southeast Asia, the street food of Penang stands out. Part of what makes it so good is the mishmash of cultures that have left their mark on this island. Start the day with Indian roti canai, a flaky flatbread served with curry. Or try a true Malaysian favourite, nasi lemak – a mound of coconut-infused rice plus peanuts, crispy anchovies, sweet chilli sauce and a hardboiled egg, served with or without meat. It’s an odd combination, often wrapped in a grab-and-go banana leaf parcel, that works amazingly well. Wash it down like the locals do with a strong iced coffee sweetened with condensed milk. From there it’s on to a parade of Chineseinspired stir-fried noodle dishes. Char kway teow, made with flat-rice noodles, sausage, prawns, cockles and eggs, is a must-try staple that’s easy to find. Mee goreng, another fried noodle dish, is sweeter and can have a subtle Indian curry kick, while the famous laksa noodle soup is all about the sour and spice. None of the dishes costs much more than 6 ringgit (about $A2). But one dish you’ll struggle to find? The penang curry, which is more associated with neighbouring Thailand.

LISA WILKINSON’S FAVOURITE LIP AND EYE SHADES

Kylie’s cool new do Kylie Minogue looked gorgeous at the world premiere miere of her new film Swinging Safari in Sydney recently. We love her new curtain fringe, one of the hottest celebrity hair trends at the moment. A curtain fringe is cut in an inverted V shape, so the shortest section sits where you part your hair and the hair angles down gradually on each side to frame the face. It suits most face shapes, is easy to maintain and if cut properly, should require little styling. To get the curtain finish, use a round brush and blow-dry your fringe forward and under. Then roll it around the brush backwards, away from the face and let it cool down on the brush. Part your fringe and smooth over with your dryer, brushing in a flicking motion away from your face.

Former Today Show presenter, Lisa Wilkinson was constantly asked what shade of lip gloss she wore on the show. It was a pink-peach shade she created in conjunction with the team from Mella Cosmetics, which it then released to the public. Icon The Gloss is a nude rose gold lipstick and gloss hybrid, $25. Ms Wilkinson’s go-to eye makeup is a Nars eyeshadow in Fez, a velvety cocoa that highlights as well as deepens, $37 from Mecca Maxima. She e describes it as “magical”.

MY OPINION

LIFE LESSONS ON THE BIG SCREEEN

BUILD IT, AND THEY WILL SPEND

What’s Sami Muirhead’s New Year’s resolution? She will be making time to take her family to the movies.

Simon Latchford says the local tourism sector needs new, upmarket accommodation. And we need to start building right now.

O

h hi there 2018! You sneaky little devil creeping up on us all like that and forcing us to realise time stands still for no one. A new year and new hopes and dreams of decluttering the home and losing weight that will probably never come to fruition. Recycled plans to wipe my credit card debt are a distant long shot at best! But one thing I can promise I’ll be doing is watching movies. I always think this special week of Christmas ending and the New Year unfurling smacks of movie time. Council has put on free outdoor movies on Mooloolaba Beach again this year. Life does not get much better than lying on the white sand as the sun sets while you munch on popcorn and escape to the big screen. Councillor John Connolly says Cinema in the Sand’s line-up will include Moana, Finding Dory and Back to the Future. “There is no doubt communities thrive when people are able to come together in a safe and inviting environment and Mooloolaba is definitely the place to be these summer holidays,” Cr Connolly says. “Simply BYO blanket, towel, bean bag or beach chair and grab some delicious takeaway from one of the nearby restaurants.” We will also be seeing some new movies in air-conditioned comfort. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The

Greatest Showman and Star Wars: The Last Jedi are all on our must-watch list. But I also urge you to take your child to see Wonder. It is the story of a young boy who was born with facial differences and his battle to find friendship and acceptance. It’s a movie you really should take your child to as it shows how one simple gesture of kindness can change a person’s day, week or even life. It would be lovely to have highachieving kids, but raising children who have empathy and compassion is one of our main goals as parents. I am no expert but I think some of those traits are genetic and some are learned. Two of our three kids are kind. I think. But our three-year-old is just a boofhead. We have to put extra effort into teaching him that not everything is a competition and you cannot just take what you want in life. He is also a gorgeous soul and very young so we have time to hopefully lead him down a path of kindness. So our serious New Year’s resolution is to ask our children every day after school or kindy, “Who were you kind to today?” I am going to try to lead by example as well and do one act of kindness a day. It might be getting someone a cup of tea at work or ringing a friend I have not spoken to forever. I will keep you posted on how we go. Happy 2018 everyone. May it be full of peace, health and kindness for each of you.

T

he Sunshine Coast has recorded another strong increase in international arrivals with 8.2 per cent growth to 294,000 in the year to September 2017. But visitor expenditure declined 11.9 per cent to $235.6 million. Statistics released by Tourism Research Australia show Sunshine Coast international visitor growth (8.2 per cent) topped the Australian growth figure (7.1 per cent) and was higher than the overall state (three per cent) and destinations such as the Gold Coast (4.2 per cent), Brisbane (4.6 per cent) and tropical north Queensland (1.5 per cent). However, a reduction in holiday travellers, shorter visits, and an increase in stays in unregulated premises meant that visitor expenditure on the Sunshine Coast wasn’t keeping pace with arrivals. New Zealand remained the largest international market with 65,000 arrivals, while visitor numbers also increased from Canada, the UK, Germany and Scandinavian countries. On the surface, the local tourism industry has a lot to celebrate, but the significant decline in expenditure and reduction in stays reflect an aspect of our industry that has been a major problem for some time, and getting more serious: the constraint caused by the lack of new five-star accommodation along the coast. The last five-star hotel to be developed was the Hyatt Coolum, more than 30 years ago. Its closure has had a major negative

effect on the Sunshine Coast’s ability to attract high-level leisure and conference business. That premium sector of the market is now being courted by destinations up and down the east coast because they can offer outstanding new accommodation and conference venues. The redeveloped airport will open in 2020, and has the potential to change the face of Sunshine Coast tourism for decades to come. That leaves just two years to get major new accommodation infrastructure developed, so it’s imperative there is positive action taken to expedite these projects. The Gold Coast, Cairns and Brisbane all have a comprehensive range of new upscale hotels in the pipeline. Unless there is a more positive and collegiate attitude to new development on the Sunshine Coast, the huge investment opportunities will pass us by and it is uncertain whether they will come back again for quite some time. No one is saying that there should be development at any cost. Any hotel development must be sympathetic to the local environment, and we have been encouraged by some pioneering environmental and community components that have been included in the resort proposals. We urge people to consider the bigger community picture if we are going to continue fuelling economic and jobs growth, while building the Sunshine Coast’s reputation as a leader in sustainable and appropriate tourism development.

LOCAL NEWS

Darryl Watt, Ord Minnett Buderim.

BANKING REPORT

F

irst, the good news on the bank reporting season: margins, asset quality and capital for the majors beat expectations, which has led us, unexpectedly, a step closer to capital management, such as special dividends or buybacks, from the market’s dividend darlings. Now, the bad news: weak trading income from markets, businesses and provisions related to poor corporate conduct made for an overall disappointing bank reporting season at the headline level, even though the underlying performance was a little better. We note here for clarity that ANZ Bank, National Australia Bank and Westpac all reported results for the year to September 30, 2017, while Commonwealth Bank, which rules its books off on June 30, released a trading update for the September quarter of the 2017/18 financial year, rather than

a complete set of profit and loss numbers. The major banks reported better than expected net interest margin expansion in the second half of 2016/17, with margins at NAB and Westpac rising six basis points. ANZ notched an increase in net interest margin of just two basis points. CBA registered revenue growth of four per cent in the September quarter on the second half of 2016/17. We forecast six basis points of margin expansion for the first half of 2017/18 for CBA. The widening gap reflected lending margin expansion – mainly mortgage repricing – and funding cost benefits, which more than offset the impact of the Government’s bank levy. Holding the headline revenue line back were weaker markets income, which was down by 16 to 35 per cent and meant revenue growth was limited to an average of 0.3 per cent. Excluding this, average revenue growth would have been stronger at 3.1 per cent. The major banks are trading at an average 26 per cent discount to the industrials group, around four per cent cheaper than the 10-year average. Despite only modest growth prospects, we expect reasonable total returns over the next 12 months of around nine per cent, driven mainly by an average prospective dividend yield of around six per cent.

APP HELPS TO PREP FOR A PET FOR LIFE More than 130,000 animals are abandoned each year, according to the RSPCA, and an app created by Sunshine Coast families could be a big step towards reducing that number. PrePet is a 21-day challenge for families who are looking at getting a pet. The PrePet app simulates a real-life cat or dog and what it takes to keep them happy and healthy. The animated app puts potential owners through their pet paces – they must feed, walk, play with, talk to and clean up after their animal. They do this by walking with and talking to their mobile device, tilting and shaking it, as well as ‘throwing’ a ball off screen and ‘flicking’ off poo, which explodes. At the end of the 21-day challenge, the potential pet owner gets a personalised certificate of Pet-Worthiness, or not. The man who came up with the idea for the PrePet app, Jamie Johnstone, says it was born out of the incessant pleading of his wife and daughter to get a horse for their acreage in Chevallum. “I grew up on a farm and understand the time commitments to look after animals, but they … had no concept of it and were pressuring me daily,” says Mr Johnstone. “So when my wife would join me on the deck for a coffee in the morning, I would tell her she couldn’t sit down yet, because she hadn’t

Jamie Johnstone, Darcy McKinnon, Beau Johnstone, Leila Johnstone, Byron McKinnon and Daniel McKinnon. been out to check on the horse, which was met with an eye roll and a head shake. “Then in the evening when we sat down for a dinner, I’d tell her and my daughter they couldn’t join us until they’d checked on and fed the horse, which was again met with an eye-roll and a head shake. It went on for a week until she relented and said she got the idea that is was a big commitment.” With a close family friend working at the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge, which receives up to 1000 animals each year, Mr Johnstone approached Appfactory director Daniel McKinnon to help bring his idea to life. Mr Johnstone and Mr McKinnon spent six months working on PrePet and the result has taken the app stores by storm. The app is $4.49 with a 24-hour free trial and is available for iOS and Android phones and mobiles. For more information visit prepetapp.com.

The 7 most common health complaints that may be causing symptoms of depression, anxiety or ADHD Are you not as happy as you used to be? Is stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, or ADHD overwhelming you or your child? Are anti-depressants or other medications not working for you?

The Caloundra Street Fair has embarked on a new and exciting era to help drive CBD collaboration and growth. Bulcock Street retail shops and stallholders will join forces to enhance the Caloundra CBD Markets every Sunday, with stalls now opening up onto the footpaths to create intimate laneways along the busy thoroughfare. The change in configuration will use the shade of the footpaths so customers can fully immerse themselves in the Caloundra shopping experience. The new stall configuration marks the first evolution of the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce’s Sunday growth strategy. In the future the chamber will also develop a Sunday Trading Reference Group to involve interested traders and customers during the design and development of a range of initiatives. “Our chamber is committed to offering a holistic experience for shoppers now and into the future,” says Caloundra Chamber of Commerce president Michael Shadforth. “Our trading community is working towards a busy and festive 2017 summer and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors and locals to the weekly celebration showcasing our talented creatives and entrepreneurs.”

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

In 2018, Jupiter encourages you to contribute your talents to a worthy cause within your local community. You could also create a splash on social media when something you post goes viral. Don’t expect others to be punctual on Tuesday.

Finances and luck are linked in 2018, as Jupiter transits through your money zone. So expect a boost to your bank balance via a promotion, pay rise, bonus, gift or extra business coming your way. Make sure you plan something special.

Make the most of the first ten months of 2018, when Jupiter jumps through your sign. An optimistic approach will lead to success, travel and plenty of positive feedback. But you’ll need to be diplomatic if you want to avoid a friction on Tuesday.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Sagittarians will become more self-reflective as Jupiter journeys through your spiritual zone until November 8. So activities like meditation, contemplation, yoga and journaling are favoured, as you tap into the wisdom within.

The first ten months of 2018 is the time to extend your current peer group to include an influential new crowd. But with Saturn (your ruling planet) sauntering through your sign until 2020, substantial success will take some time to manifest.

With bountiful Jupiter (planet of aspirations, big business and good luck) activating your career zone, 2018 is a terrific year to tap into your entrepreneurial side and turn an innovative idea into a productive and prosperous venture.

Under the influence of Jupiter, the next ten months is a marvellous time to take an overseas trip or upgrade your qualifications. This week, expect a creativity surge on Wednesday, when Venus and Neptune stimulate your fertile imagination.

MOSAIC’S MAGIC TOUCH

Mosaic Property Group is redefining apartment living on the Sunshine Coast with its winning formula for success.

PROJECT SNAPSHOT Address: 1722 Coolum Esplanade, Coolum Beach Project: 1, 2, 3 bedroom apartments, sub-penthouses & penthouses Facilities: Resort style private pool, pet friendly, barbecues and gardens Size range: 95sqm to 355sqm Price range: $470,000 to $2,650,000 Construction: February 2018 to May 2019 Sales: Overwhelming response from locals and owner-occupiers

M

ulti-award-winning developer Mosaic Property Group has struck gold with the launch of Drift on spectacular Coolum Beach with more than half of the luxury apartments already sold. The $52-million project, which achieved 37 sales within two weeks of its launch with an overwhelming response from owneroccupiers, will nestle in a rare north-facing beachfront site and showcase one of the most sought-after positions on the Sunshine Coast. Drift will comprise 56 beautiful one, two and three-bedroom apartments, subpenthouses and penthouses across four levels, setting a new standard for luxurious beachfront living in the surf haven of Coolum Beach. Mosaic Property Group’s local sales manager, Marcus Muir, says Drift is well located to capture the perfect coastal lifestyle. “Coolum has managed to remain under the radar and avoid much of the congestion and commercial development that inevitably follows the discovery of a popular coastal destination,” Mr Muir says. “Coolum maintains a real sense of community and relaxed beachside atmosphere. The arrival of Drift provides residents with their own private piece of paradise, which has proven popular for locals, with the vast majority of buyers being local to the immediate area. “As a developer, it’s vital to have the support of the local community and we’re grateful and delighted that Drift is meeting the expectations of these buyers.” Mr Muir says Coolum’s relaxed outdoor lifestyle has been woven into key elements of Drift’s building design.

“Living at Drift will feel like being on a permanent holiday, capturing the ultimate in beachfront living…” “The large private outdoor area contains a resort-style pool with tropical surrounds, barbecue facilities and outdoor seating to create a luxurious secluded getaway for all residents. “Living at Drift will feel like being on a permanent holiday, capturing the ultimate in beachfront living and the desirable Sunshine Coast lifestyle.” Set to rise at 1722 Coolum Esplanade, Drift is designed for low-maintenance luxury beachfront living with each apartment featuring a gourmet kitchen, spacious bathrooms and free-flowing open-plan interiors that are perfect for

relaxing or entertaining. Drift’s clever and thoughtful design ensures all apartments are positioned to take advantage of the unique beachfront location, with its sweeping panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and across Coolum Beach. As with Mosaic’s Solis project, Drift has secured a six-leaf EnviroDevelopment certification by ticking boxes for ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community, and setting a benchmark for upcoming Mosaic Sunshine Coast projects.

DISPLAY OPEN: Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm Saturday from 10am to 2pm Sunday by appointment only Holiday times: Dec 27 to 29 & Jan 3 to 5 from 10am to 2pm Walk-ins are welcome.

ROYAL RECEPTION FOR MOSAIC AT KINGS BEACH

C

onstruction on Mosaic Property Group’s debut Sunshine Coast projects Cyan and Solis at Kings Beach in Caloundra is advancing, with both on schedule for completion in 2018. Mosaic Construction is pouring the fifth level slab at Cyan, while Solis will start rising from the ground early in the new year with excavation works and footings now in place. The boutique projects achieved a combined $43-million sellout of 64 luxury apartments within months of Mosaic launching them to the market. Mosaic Property Group managing director Brook Monahan says the outstanding sales success of the $20-million Cyan and $23-million Solis has validated the company’s decision to expand to the Sunshine Coast. “The incredible sales results of both Cyan and Solis prove that there is significant demand for properties of this calibre on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Monahan says. “Both projects have been enthusiastically received by owneroccupiers and investors who see the value in the region and the lifestyle opportunity on offer. “The entire team at Mosaic is very excited and confident in our decision to extend our product offering to the Sunny Coast. “We’ve undertaken extensive research on the region and the demand that we have

“Both projects have been enthusiastically received by owneroccupiers and investors…”

experienced for our debut developments so far support our expansion plans here.” Upon completion, Cyan will feature 31 beautiful apartments across seven levels, crowned by two exclusive penthouse apartments which include a mezzanine level with a private roof terrace. Neighbouring development Solis will house 33 stunning one, two and threebedroom apartments, two penthouses and

three sub-penthouses. The boutique development includes a resort-style pool and pet-friendly facilities to complement the Sunshine Coast lifestyle. Apartments in both Kings Beach projects have spectacular views of the ocean and surrounding region, including the majestic Glass House Mountains. Cyan is expected to be completed in May 2018 and Solis by October 2018. Mosaic Property Group has recently cemented its commitment to the Sunshine Coast with its new regional office. “We now have a strong presence on the Coast with our office in full swing on the street-front in Maroochydore,” he said. “Our move not only brings greater efficiencies to Mosaic’s operations but also pays respect to the Sunshine Coast’s growing economic base.” Mosaic’s existing development pipeline will create 635 direct and indirect full-time equivalent positions, with 400 of those on the Sunshine Coast. Sunshine Coast workers will account for $33 million in wages and salaries, leading to $94 million in economic benefits to the region and $196 million to the construction industry.

For more information on Mosaic, visit mosaicproperty.com.au or call 3171 2270. Mosaic’s Sunshine Coast office and showroom is located at 48–50 Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT SECRET TO MOSAIC’S SUCCESS

A

ward-winning boutique developer Mosaic Property Group opened an office and showroom at Maroochydore in 2017 to service its two apartment projects under construction at Kings Beach, as well as the spectacular beachfront development recently launched at Coolum Beach. The three projects are just the beginning of Mosaic’s pipeline into the region, with plans to roll out a series of luxury residential developments including a landmark luxury project for Maroochydore, a gateway to the world-class SunCentral CBD. Mosaic founder and managing director Brook Monahan says his team is absolutely thrilled and humbled with how the Mosaic brand has been received on the Sunshine Coast. “It’s a region we identified as having incredible long-term potential for our company thanks to its strong economic and population growth, the enormous amount of infrastructure and private investment underway in the region, and of course, its natural beauty,” Mr Monahan says.

“To develop in the region, you must be very patient, put in the hard yards over a long period of time, respect the community and the environment, engage with and listen to what the communities

are crying out for with respect to product type, amenity, architecture and community benefit. “Mosaic has invested heavily into local community groups, local businesses,

consultants, trades, relationships with agents, and in working closely with several local charities via the Mosaic Foundation. “You can’t move into a region as beautiful as the Sunshine Coast and not invest heavily into the region and its people. Many property groups from outside of the region (and even locally) have failed as a result of not understanding how important it is to engage fully in this local community.” My Weekly Preview | December 29, 2017 39

2018 PROPERTY PREDICTIONS 2017 has been one of the strongest years for the Sunshine Coast real estate market in recent times. With multimillion-dollar investments in health, aviation, education and business infrastructure and a resurgence of vibrant hospitality venues and a plethora of arts, culture and sporting events, it is little wonder the region is becoming a highly sought-after destination for people of all demographics. Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane talks to a range of industry insiders to recap the amazing year that was, and look at what they predict the market will look like in 2018.

JESS LUTHJE – MALENY REALTY The market was very steady this year, with consistent sales over all price brackets and well-presented property selling quickly. There were, however, lower numbers of sales due to a severe lack of stock. I see continued strong sales activity and limited stock on the market into 2018. There seems to be a real satisfaction with the area and people don’t want to leave in general, so we’re not seeing a lot of property come onto the market. Very low stock levels in the hinterland mean it’s a very good time to sell, as competition is high among buyers. Property needing renovation is taking longer to sell and not achieving as much as it could if a simple renovation was carried out. Buyers remain very savvy and although the demand is strong, they know where the value sits.

LUKE CARTER – HARCOURTS CALOUNDRA The amount of stock we’ve had come onto the market in Caloundra and surrounds this year has been at an all-time low. Our recent market reports for our business show stock across all suburbs tightening anywhere between 15 and 30 per cent from 2016 to 2017 and sales volumes have dropped due to lack of supply. This is going to continue through 2018. For us, property enquiries are up 60 per cent on this time last year, and supply is down 30 per cent. This will continue well and truly over the next 12 months and it will be a seller’s market. It’s been a long time since sellers have had time on their side on the Sunshine Coast market, which has been weak at best and in some areas retracting quite rapidly. But sellers now have the luxury of having a bit of time up their sleeve to test the market and wait to get a premium price, and it’s about time.

JARROD MCCARTHY – HARCOURTS BUDERIM Property sellers benefited from a general shortage of supply to the market this year, creating more competition for available properties. We saw more upward pressure on prices this year than previous years. Practical family homes were the most in-demand property type of the year. Mostly four-bedroom homes that offered yard space for kids and pets. The various factors that are driving demand at present look set to continue through to next year. Major infrastructure projects, a growing local economy and lifestyle factors will continue to drive people to the Sunshine Coast and I believe the growth we’ve experienced in 2017 will continue to trend at a similar rate in 2018. Despite an increase in Coast prices, there is still a major disparity between local prices and current values in major capital cities. This has driven greater investor enquiry. With a range of new residential developments opening over the coming years, the supply to market should sufficiently curb price growth to remain in reach of local first-home buyers.

KAREN JONES – NEXT PROPERTY GROUP I have found 2017 to be a very buoyant year and we are now starting to see a serious amount of buyer interest from the southern states. Suburbs where there is infrastructure being added has been in high demand, like Wurtulla, Birtinya and Bokarina. We are now also seeing our prime positions being targeted. Beachfront, waterfront and prestige acreage and apartments. Demand was very much determined by what price range and location the house was in. I believe the demand is currently outstripping supply. I experienced an increase in demand as the year went on and this has had a positive impact on the prices. The number one question at dinner parties at present? Do I hold, or do I sell? We are really more global now than ever before and we do have to keep that in the background when predicting the market. And the other consideration is interest rates. If there is mortgage stress, this will obviously impact the market negatively as well. If all above conditions stay unchanged, I feel the market will keep moving in a positive direction for 2018.

PROPERTY

TIM BURROUGH – RE/MAX COAST AND COUNTRY We have seen solid growth in the housing market of three to five per cent in the Blackall Range towns of Montville to Mapleton and surrounding suburbs. We have seen very strong house sales but have had virtually no unit stock. In fact, I can’t say I’ve seen one. There have been vacant land sales though. Mid-range properties $500,000-plus have been bought by 50 per cent local buyers from the Range, 25 per cent Brisbane buyers and then elsewhere, including the coastal strip. Top end up here is probably $750,000 and above and is 50 per cent Brisbane, 10 per cent Sunshine Coastal, 10 per cent Range residents, the rest of Queensland 20 per cent and 10 per cent from NSW. For 2018, I see steady growth pushed by the Brisbane and Sydney city Baby Boomer demographic, who are tree changing to lower priced and lifestyle areas. Selling now provides certainty to lock in current capital gains. Best bet is it goes up for two years yet, however stranger things have happened in market cycles, so nobody can rule out a stalled market or price falls next year.

GORDON MACDONALD – THE AUCTION GROUP I’m fortunate enough to spend time in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland either calling auctions or coaching real estate agents. The hype around the Sunshine Coast from our southern counterparts is quite remarkable. For the last half of 2017 Noosa has seen unprecedented turnover in the three million-plus price range. In terms of registered bidders, active bidding, crowd sizes, Noosa auctions have had the same characteristics of an inner-city Sydney or Melbourne auction. For next year, I’m seeing record volume of auction bookings for January and February already. These sellers are looking to capitalise on the current ‘mood’ of the market. Some suburbs will outperform others, just like 2017. Overall, I’m seeing no tangible evidence of things slowing down, however as the southern capitals continue to cool, could this stem the flow of southern migration and investment? Investment in infrastructure is propelling the Sunshine Coast not only nationally but internationally. Fundamentally we are very solid and I’m quite excited for the forecast over the next few decades.

VANESSA BRUNTON – FIRST NATIONAL CAROLANS The property market is tracking very well. I see more and more people moving here from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, all wanting a slice of Sunshine Coast paradise. I feel we’ll enjoy terrific growth in the future, more and more savvy buyers are securing a block greater than 600m2 putting on the second dwelling and then teenagers or extended family are moving in, or they are being rented out for a great passive income. New units are selling faster around Nambour than I can list them, particularly with first-home buyers taking advantage of the generous grants. I’m seeing more tree changers to the hinterland areas such as Dulong, Kureelpa and Mapleton, all wanting an acre or two so they can get away from the high density living that is ever increasing and still be close to essential services. I feel sellers will miss the opportunity if they don’t get in now. Compromise is sometimes required and location is key. Selling and buying in the same market is always best, great opportunities present themselves every day, whatever the market conditions.

ROSS CATTLE – DEFINE PROPERTY There is no doubt that 2017 was a great year for the Sunshine Coast property market. It has proven to be a very consistent and stable year with good solid growth. This solid year is on the back of two consistent prior years and 2017 proves the Sunshine Coast has separated its market from other parts of south-east Queensland. It’s always hard to say definitively what will happen in the future, even the immediate future, but looking at the lack of stock available to buyers and how cheap Sunshine Coast property is compared to every other part of Australia, I think there’s plenty of upside ahead in 2018. There is a very bright future on the Sunshine Coast and I believe if we can encourage more local employment for other industries besides construction and tourism, then we can really have a stable economy well into the future. The Sunshine Coast is one of the best places to buy property for profit in 2018, for what the Sunshine Coast offers and its bang for buck we are as cheap as chips. The drive from New South Wales buyers alone will push property prices up in 2018, the key is buying the right place in the right position.

SOLID SALES FOR WATERFRONT APARTMENTS

A

total of 240 waterfront apartments across four sites, adjacent to the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital, have been sold by the RGD Group over the past 24 months. RGD Group is the largest developer and builder of apartments in the Kawana area. Their projects North Shore Oceanside Kawana, Salt at Oceanside, Waterline at Oceanside and Aquarius at Oceanside, with a combined value of $120 million, sold out prior to completion. RGD managing director Ron Grabbe recognised the positive impact of the $2 billion 450-bed Sunshine University Hospital and the 200-bed Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital. “On launching North Shore Oceanside Kawana in September 2015 we had great demand from astute investors and owner occupiers from around Australia and overseas who saw the growth potential and convenience of owning waterfront property adjacent to these world class medical facilities,’’ he says. “Much needed accommodation for thousands of hospital staff and visiting families is now a reality and our apartments are proving to be one of the healthiest investments available in Australia right now.” All apartments face the water and are

Sales and marketing manager Gail Hunter says the apartments are a good investment. “With vacancy rates on the Sunshine Coast tightening, the region experiencing one of the fastest population growth rates in Australia and significant

infrastructure projects just completed or underway… our waterfront apartment developments are ideally positioned to realise great returns and lifestyle benefits for both investors and owner-occupiers.” With record sales achieved at the apartment projects highlighting the strength of the Sunshine Coast markets, RGD Group will launch a new development in early 2018. “This new waterfront development on the corner of Lake Kawana Boulevard and Mantra Esplanade in Birtinya will provide the opportunity for medical professionals and savvy investors who may have missed out on our previous projects to secure a waterfront apartment to cater for the thousands of hospital shift workers needing accommodation,” Mr Grabbe says.

NEW USE FOR HISTORIC CANE TRAIN SITE

T

he cane industry was a key factor in the development of Nambour and the former Maroochy Shire. Cane trains from across the region brought cane from many farms to the Moreton Central Sugar Mill in central Nambour between 1897 and 2003. The section of train line that passed through the town was an important characteristic of Nambour, laden cane trains travelling between shops and commercial buildings featured on many postcard views of the town and the sight was popular with tourists. The heritage-listed train line is still present in the road reserve from the old mill (now Coles), across Currie Street to the Howard Street marshalling yards. The yard site is set to be revitalised and developed into a medium-density townhouse project. When Image Projects Group negotiated the purchase of this land from Bundaberg Sugar in 2014 it coincided with the release of the new Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme which supported residential townhouse development. “We wanted to provide the community with a modern, affordable residential project that met all the requirements of the town planning scheme,’’ managing director Ryan Veitch says.

“We saw an opportunity to provide residents with everything they want in a location that is walking distance to transport, major shopping centre, entertainment venues, hospitals and schools.” Image Place is a 48-unit staged townhouse project. Construction of the first stage commenced this month. The architecturally-designed project features a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom configurations with large bathrooms and ensuites, powder room, walk-in robes, study area, air-conditioning, modern appliances, outdoor living area, kitchen and additional car park. “We agreed that features like larger kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor living areas should stand out and be a point of

difference when compared to other projects,” Mr Veitch says. “We want to produce something that represents good design and functionality at an affordable price point suitable for all sectors of the property market. The variety of sizes make this development ideal for families, downsizers, first home owners and of course property investor.” Prices start from $334,900 for a twobedroom (with two ensuites) townhouse with turn-key package. “In terms of size and quality we have delivered, it is impressive, to then offer these townhouses at the prices we have which has really pushed it over the line as a great project,” Mr Veitch says. For more information visit imageplace.net.au .

AT A GLANCE What: 48 townhouse units. All units include ensuite, bathroom, ground floor powder room, study area, large outdoor living area, lock-up garage and most have an additional car park. Features: House-sized kitchens, turn-key inclusions, generous-sized bedrooms and bathrooms, modern finishes and fixtures, managed complex. Price: Two-bedroom townhouse from $334,900 Three bedrooms from $364,900 Four bedrooms from $389,900.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Okay you crazy kids, it’s time to reflect on the meaning of life. Nah. With sloppy summer waves our diet for the next few months my main question is: what is a surfer to do? Bang! The lads at Beach Beat have just score some fun boards which should give you the speed and fun you require. I have grabbed a Quad setup, which looks super fun. Get in there before they fly away. Now, a New Year’s Eve memory from 1986 – our family at Mooloolaba Surf Club always did the nudie swim at midnight. Back then no one thought Mooloolaba was a party place. How times have changed. What ever you do have fun and be cool! Don’t forget to treat out visitors with respect. Cheers big ears!
