y three-year-old posed an interesting question this week: “What’s Australia Day about?’’ A seemingly innocent question and yet one that requires a significant response. We explained that it was identified some time ago as a day to celebrate what it means to be Australian, but that people all over the world, and within our country, have a range of days and beliefs that are worth acknowledging. I told him it’s important to learn about our country’s history – where we came from and who we are today as a community. And, that the most important thing is for him to treat all people equally and with respect every single day – no matter their nationality, their race, their job, where they live or where they came from. He looked at me for a second, nodded his head and said: “Sounds great”. It does indeed. As the debate about Australia Day continues to divide the nation, we spoke with former Australian of the Year Dick Smith about his thoughts on the date. We also take a look at the events taking place around the region. You can read the story on page 12. However you choose to spend the day, I hope you are surrounded by the ones you love. Until next week, take care.

COMING TOGETHER Former Australian of the Year Dick Smith reflects on growing up in this great nation and talks to My Weekly Preview about what being Australian means to him.
hat does it mean to be Australian? Whether you were born and bred in Australia, or migrated here, the way you view the national holiday on January 26 varies greatly for each person. For some, it’s a chance to connect with families on the beach with the snags sizzling in the background. For others, it’s a chance to become new Australians and begin a new era of their lives in this country. It is also a time of reflection, both on our past and where we’d like to see ourselves as a nation in the future. On January 26, 1788 Captain Arthur Phillip and the First Fleet arrived in Sydney Cove and raised the English flag, claiming the country in the name of Britain. But it wasn’t until 1935 that all states and territories agreed on calling it Australia Day and then, not until 1994 that it became a national public holiday that is celebrated the way we know it today. The country has changed so much since then and being Australian has taken on a whole new meaning. We are now a melting pot of many different races, cultures and religions and the term ‘multicultural’ is often used when describing our nation. But it is a word that Australian entrepreneur and philanthropist Dick Smith says he is not fond of. “I don’t like the word multicultural, I don’t understand it,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “I thought we just have one culture – Aussie culture – which is a blend of many different cultures and that’s what makes it so good. “I’m really positive about the fact that our country is made up of original Australians plus millions of immigrants, because people come in and bring the best things of their culture with them and meld into Aussie culture. It’s not always perfect, but I think it’s very good.”
Quiz time “I’m really positive about the fact that our country is made up of original Australians plus millions of immigrants” Dick Smith
How many of these words do you use on a regular basis?
Arvo Barbie Bottle-o Brekkie Chockers Dag Dero Score:
Mr Smith says he has great memories of celebrating Australia Day as a “free-range kid” on Sydney’s north shore in the ’40s and ’50s. It’s something that many Queensland families can relate to today. On the Sunshine Coast, thousands flock to the beach – the salt air, sea water and golden sand does, after all, run through our veins. For many, modern Australia Day is about family, friends and connection. “Australia Day for us was a day with the family and we would normally go to the beach,” Mr Smith says. That carefree view of Australia Day remained with him until 1986 – the year he was named Australian of the Year. “It occurred to me, when I was writing my Australia Day speech, that the original settlers of this country had such incredible conceit to have said this country was terra nullius and there were no other human beings here and we now know there were people there for tens of thousands of years before that,” he says. “I think it might be better to just pick a more neutral date that we can celebrate together. I compared it to what it would be like for us if the Japanese had succeeded in the Second World War and taken over Australia. We wouldn’t really celebrate that as a great day.” It was a suggestion that was praised by many at the time, but Mr Smith is not surprised that more than three decades have passed without any change taking place. “I’m a white Australian who would be more comfortable if it was a date we could all celebrate. I think we’ll have to wait a few generations for that to happen, there are too many angry people who think it’s part of political correctness and linking it to other things that it shouldn’t be linked to whereas to me, I just think it’s doing the right thing by Aboriginal people.”

One of the mainstays of Australia Day celebrations is the citizenship ceremony and this year will be no exception, with the Sunshine Coast Council welcoming 190 new citizens on the day. The councilâ€™s invite-only Caloundra ceremony is the largest in the region with the Kawana Waters Rotary Club, Apex Club of Maleny and Palmwoods Community and Business Association (PCAB) holding complementary ceremonies in their respective suburbs. The Kawana Waters Rotary Club has held Australia Day citizenship ceremonies for more than 20 years and their latest will be held at the Kawana Community Hall in Buddina at 10.30am. This year there are 35 recipients representing 11 nationalities. Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie, who will present the certificates at this ceremony, says being Australian is much more than being Indigenous or non-Indigenous. â€œWe welcome people from all walks of life into Australia and to me, that is what Australia Day is all about,â€? he says. â€œSince being an MP, I have been part of many citizenship ceremonies and it is such a moving experience to see people with tears of joy streaming down their faces because they have become Australian citizens. They see Australia as a safe place to raise their children, to get a job or an education and a place where they can vote freely without fear of being shot. These are all things we should be celebrating and we have a day called Australia Day to be thankful that we live in what I think is the best country in the world.â€? Those becoming citizens at the Kawana ceremony will enjoy entertainment by Eddie Charles and children and adults are given balloons and flags to wave. PCABâ€™s Jenny McCafferty says they will welcome 14 new citizens at 8.15am in the new town square, weather permitting. â€œThis yearâ€™s numbers are lower than normal across the nation due to changes within the immigration department,â€? she says.

MAKING SCIENCE A HOT TOPIC 2017 Australian of the Year Alan Mackay-Sim reflects on a busy year advancing the status of science in Australia. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
IMAGE: GREG GARDNER
n this day 365 days ago, Alan Mackay-Sim was announced as the Australian of the Year. Now, as he prepares to hand over the mantle to the 2018 Australian of the Year, the Currimundi-based biomedical scientist says he has enjoyed a “great year”. Mr Mackay-Sim says he had “some inkling” of how busy 2017 would become for him after seeing fellow professor Ian Fraser go through the process in 2010. “It has been full of meetings, presentations, speeches, science and biomedical science conferences, fundraisers and meeting new people,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “I’ve met school kids, teachers in training, business leaders, government folk and I feel like I’ve reached across the board in the community with the people that I’ve spoken to. “On top of that, a recent media analysis done by the (Griffith) university department returned 7000 hits, which represents a huge reach of people directly and indirectly.” Mr Mackay-Sim says one of his aims for the year was to use his platform to promote science, and biomedical science in particular, as “one of the keys to Australia’s future prosperity”. “It is an exciting and interesting career for kids to aspire to and I wanted to boost its profile so we can provide the people in the science community with the resources they need to advance our economy in a new direction,” he says.
“But I think the most memorable part of my time as Australian of the Year has been the recognition that the Australian community really values science and biomedical science. “I have met people on the street and many more at functions and they have said how great science is and have expressed their great appreciation for the role we play in society, so I think it was a very significant for me to appreciate that.” Mr Mackay-Sim says he was also touched to see so many everyday Australians from his extensive travels around the country who are working tirelessly to fundraise for causes that are close to their hearts. Describing the year as “a bit random”, Mr Mackay-Sim says he accepted almost every invitation that appeared in his inbox, and there were plenty of them. “You become Australian of the Year and suddenly your inbox is completely full,” he says. “I’m semi-retired, so I really had the time to make this my full-time job for the year and while I’ve already had some invitations for this year, I will definitely be cutting back and having a bit of a rest.” He says he plans to return to spending two or three days a week working on various stem cell projects in collaboration with other scientists and maybe taking some holidays. “My wife (Lisa Peine) will be ready for me to be home more often. I have a few more chores to do around the house,” he quips.

REVIEW HIGH HOPES FOR FAST TRAIN
A fast train proposal, which could get passengers from the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane in 45 minutes, is on the shortlist for consideration for $10 billion in Federal Government funding. Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien has revealed the North Coast Connect proposal, which is backed by a private consortium, is the only Queensland project shortlisted in stage two of the Federal Government’s Faster Rail Program, with an announcement about final successful projects due by the end of the month. The rail line would link Brisbane to Nambour in 45 minutes and include an offshoot line from Beerwah to coastal hubs like Maroochydore (CAMCOS).
The Yaroomba Beach development application has broken records for submissions of support in the history of development on the Sunshine Coast. According to Sekisui House, more than 3000 submissions of support were registered with Sunshine Coast Council. The council is yet to confirm the total number of submissions received regarding the proposed five-star hotel and residential village. By comparison, previous development applications for shopping centres in Coolum and Buderim attracted just 400 submissions of support. Council officers will now work complete their assessment of the development application, before it is voted on by the councillors.

SHELLING OUT Hopes are high for a shellfish restoration project in Pumicestone Passage. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
nnovative technology, recycled shells and around 25,000 live oysters have combined to provide a glimmer of hope that the once magnificent shellfish beds of Pumicestone Passage can be resurrected. After over-harvesting and disease rendered the shellfish populations in the Passage functionally extinct, a collaboration between traditional owners, all levels of government, community organisations, industry and water utilities formed to undertake the Pumicestone Shellfish Habitat Restoration Project. The project’s aim is to enhance marine biodiversity and fish stocks and boost shellfish populations in areas where they used to thrive, and ultimately improve water quality in Moreton Bay. It’s a project that Sunshine Coast Council has watched closely and it has attracted much interest for a number of reasons, including its involvement of traditional owners, the community oyster-gardening and the use for the first time in Australia of BESE-Elements (Biodegradable EcoSystems Engineering) technology. The biopolymer product, which uses potato starch by-product of the potato chip industry, was developed in the Netherlands. It’s been used to build a matrix which has a life expectancy of about five years, providing the perfect structure for shellfish to establish while allowing small fish to swim through and find protection. Healthy Land and Water coastal catchments northern area manager and regional Landcare facilitator Susie Chapman says the BESE frame was assembled by family members of the Joondaburri Trust and Kabi Kabi First Nations, who have been integral members of the project advisory group. They

were installed in one-hectare area off Kakadu Beach on December 12, marked by a yellow illuminated Special Mark buoy. Boaties are encouraged not to anchor in the area as the biopolymer reefs can be damaged. However, they can drift and fish. Also deployed, were reefs made of steel cages filled with dead and live shells and patch reefs that simulate natural subtidal reef structure. These will all be monitored by a USC marine science team to see which of the reefs is the most successful at enhancing marine biodiversity and attracting fish. The team will also capture fish diversity across the Passage as part of a fish mapping program through Healthy Land and Water. Ms Chapman says the installation last month was the result of almost three decades of advocacy and consultation, with the past 18 months dedicated to building the case and seeking approvals from several government agencies.“This project was one of the first to seek approval in Queensland, so we were all learning together with the state agencies. “Firstly we had to establish it was a restoration exercise and healthy shellfish populations existed historically in the area.
“We had to ensure the conditions of flow and water quality would support healthy shellfish populations and not be covered in sediment, and also work with the fact the Passage is a high-risk navigation zone.” While Healthy Land and Water facilitated the approval process in the Moreton Bay Marine Park, shellfish pathologist Dr Ben Diggles of DigsFish Services worked on two complementary projects. The first was the establishment of a shellfish recycling facility at the Ningi Transfer Station, allowing restaurateurs, fishmongers and community members to dump their shells to be washed and sterilised for use as structures in the restoration reefs. The second was another Australian first and involved Bribie Island canal residents hanging bags of shellfish, both dead and alive, from their pontoons to encourage them to recruit and expand in number. More than 25,000 live shells were recruited through this process, all of which went into the reefs to kick-start restoration.

Water safety is the core focus of a new program being launched on the Sunshine Coast next month. The region’s migrant community can enjoy the quintessential beach and waterbased lifestyle safely thanks to the new Migrant Swim and Beach Safety Awareness Program starting in February. Sunshine Coast Council, Unitywater and Nambour Community Centre have joined forces with Queensland Surf Life Saving and the Queensland Government to provide the free programs for migrants over the age of 10. Community Portfolio councillor Jenny McKay says the programs will benefit people from culturally diverse backgrounds. “Feedback from the community engagement phase of the Sunshine Coast Multicultural Action Plan highlighted a need for increased water safety education programs for migrants,” Cr McKay says. “The Migrants Take the Plunge program will provide free swimming lessons for residents over 10 years of age at Nambour and Mountain Creek Aquatic Centres, followed by beach safety awareness sessions delivered by Surf Life Saving Queensland. “The Women Take the Plunge program was specifically designed for women from multicultural backgrounds to take part in beginner swimming and beach safety classes in a culturally safe and friendly environment.” Surf Life Saving Queensland’s Scott Harrison says the program will help save lives.

THAT’LL BE THE DAY
Sami Muirhead likes the idea of meditation in theory, but in practice, it’s proving a lot harder than she thought.
Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane believes we should move Australia Day but asks, what day would hold equal significance for the wider population?
am learning to meditate. Yes. It is a skill you actually need to learn, which has surprised me as I always naively thought it was a matter of sitting cross-legged and being all Zen with yourself, which would be quite easy. I love sitting. I love daydreaming. And I love doing nothing. I would be totally brilliant at something at long last. However, I am really bad at sitting and trying to shut my brain off, even just for five minutes. As soon as I hit the ground, I find myself in a frenzy of frenetic thoughts, including wondering what is in the fridge for dinner tonight. Have I done any of the 34 things on my to-do list? How are the wedding plans coming along for Prince Harry and Megs? Do Samantha and Miranda and the other girls still catch up for a cheeky Cosmo during their New York weekends? And then I sharply reprimand myself and say, “Come on, Samille! You can sit here and clear your mind of all thoughts. Just focus on your breath. One. Two.” And then, pop, into my brain springs other crazy thoughts. Is sour cream or guacamole the ultimate ingredient on nachos? Will I ever fit a bikini again? What will the next steamy love scene entail between Jamie and Claire on Outlander? If I print my photos of my kids at work will the printer jam again and land me in trouble? Do penguins have knees? Damn it! I have yet again failed to think of literally nothing and
instead my brain is more like a superhighway of jumbled thoughts. I have only succeeded in being angry with myself for failing miserably in my goal to meditate. The experts say meditation is great for stress, helps to stimulate creativity, and decrease anxiety. It was once explained to me as having the same benefits as shutting down your phone and allowing it to reboot. I never do this and my phone is a hot mess with 8000 photos on it. I know. It’s a disaster waiting to happen. I love the concept of meditation and I love the fact it is free and you can do it anywhere. There is no travel time involved and you do not need the latest Lorna Jane activewear to participate. But you do need discipline. Perhaps I just need to use that part of my brain that refuses to think of anything else at night when I am craving a Turkish delight. In that moment of sugar craving I have zero problems honing in on one thought and maintaining a focus steelier than Maverick in Top Gun when he puts his missile lock on the enemy and says “I’ve got him locked. Bingo!” So I will keep on trying to meditate. Day by day I will chip away until I finally convince my brain and body it’s a good thing to sit still and feel the serenity. I am taking inspiration from possibly the most famous meditator of all time: Yoda. “Do or do not. There is no try”. And after I conquer my wayward brain gymnastics, then I will tackle deleting some of those 8000 photos.

uch like the daylight savings debate that rears its head without fail when the calendar tells every other state to spring forward while Queensland remains inert, the Australia Day debate has become an annual event. While the former debate seems to consist of banter, the latter has become fuelled with so much anger from both sides that we are lucky to have remained largely unaffected here on the Coast. The source of that anger, I believe, is largely misplaced. While there is no denying that the choice of date is culturally insensitive, the real problem is that we have not seized a strong alternative. New Zealand has Waitangi Day, the day when the European settlers and the traditional owners of the land signed the treaty of Waitangi, recognising the rights of the Maori people. The United States has Independence Day, the anniversary of the publication of the declaration of independence from Great Britain in 1776. Canadians get patriotic on July 1 to celebrate the unification of three separate colonies into a single entity in 1867. We have Australia Day, the day when Europeans raised the British flag in Sydney Cove and declared the country terra nullius – nobody’s land – and proceeded to take over the country by force. I don’t know about you, but I believe there is a stark difference in the reasons why
we celebrate our ‘national’ day compared to other Western nations. While I agree that moving the date is something that should be done, the real problem lies in where to move it to. You can scream and shout all you like about what the day represents to you, and there is no denying that it means very different things to people, but there is a deafening silence when it comes to nominating a day that has just as much significance for our country. What about the day when the states and territories unified to become Australia? Or what if we dig our heels in and work for constitutional recognition for Indigenous Australians? There are groups of passionate people, both Indigenous and nonIndigenous, who are working tirelessly to make this happen, but they seem to be running on a hamster wheel that might jolt forward a centimetre or two every couple of years and therein lies the problem. Without this recognition and wholehearted inclusion, we simply don’t have a day to celebrate as one, equal nation. A place to rightfully move Australia Day to. As a matter of curiosity, I reached out to our local, state and federal politicians to see where they stand on the issue. Of the 12 who responded, 10 were against any change being made and two were undecided and will support conversation on the matter. Until then, all camps need to show some respect and let every individual mark Australia Day however they so choose.

Who would’ve thought it? Miranda Kerr, queen of all things organic, is a fan of the perm. Granted, it’s a new kind of perm known as the American wave perm or the beach wave perm and is slightly less damaging than perms of yesteryear. Ms Kerr has dead straight hair and has indulged in an American wave perm twice to give her hair a soft wave with lots of body. It’s only recommended for thick, straight hair that hasn’t been bleached, as it can damage or break the hair. It will also set you back about $500 and a few hours in the salon.
Is Joint or Muscle Pain Disturbing your Sleep and Daily Life? Would You Like to Live Pain Free? An Undiagnosed Condition may be the Cause.

With over 10,000 research papers written about it, this hidden epidemic is referred to as “the disease your doctor can’t diagnose” with good reason. Are you worried about taking pain killers and anti-inflammatories long term? Is pain stopping you from doing the activities you used to love, or worse, is it killing you to do simple tasks? Research has proven that inflammation can be the driver of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, or fibromyalgia, but where is the inflammation coming from? More people are being affected by an insidious disease process that can masquerade as fatigue, anxiety, depression, digestive problems, weight gain, and many more serious diseases. Joint or muscle pain are just the warning signs of total systemic inflammation. Inflammatory conditions are commonly caused by immune responses to certain foods, chemicals, bacterial, fungal or viral infection.
“Don’t accept pain as normal, there is something that can be done about it”

The entry point is where food particles, or toxic environmental chemicals, and bacterial waste leak through your digestive tract into your blood stream. When the immune system responds, a hormone called cortisol is produced, driving your immune system into action, promoting inflammation and beginning the development of chronic disease. It’s suggested that more than 100 autoimmune diseases all begin with leaky gut. While traditional medications may provide you with temporary relief, these often come with side effects and can lead to further health complications. By identifying and removing the cause you can then lead a pain free life. Results can be achieved quickly with accurate investigation and treatment. Specific testing targeting white cell inflammatory responses can be ordered to identify offending foods, and types of bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Reducing inflammation through diet encourages weight loss if needed, is highly nutrient rich, and will leave you feeling full and satisfied, and pain free. You have a choice.

LEAPS AND BOUNDS Mooloolaba dancer and acrobat Darren Smith reached great heights as a performer with Cirque du Soleil. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
undaberg was a tough place to grow up for a boy ballet dancer. Darren Smith began dancing at his mother’s dance studio at the age of five and kept at it despite being bullied, going on to become a professional dancer and acrobat working in major international musicals and finally, scoring his dream job with Cirque du Soleil. The Mooloolaba father of two, who owns Warana’s Just Acrobatics and CircStudios, along with Coastal Cruises Mooloolaba, has come a long way since those days. “Bundy was all fishos and farmers, so it was a tough crowd,” he says. “But I always stuck with it. I was really little when I was growing up and because I was so little, I was easy to pick on. “The ballet component was the problem up there – as soon as you’re in ballet, you’d be instantly labelled. There was a bit of heckling, but it never really worried me. I had a strong, supportive family. On the weekends I’d go sailing with the old man and dance with my mum Dianne during the week. “I did tap, dance, ballet and sports acrobatics. Dianne was known for her acrobatics training and trained teams to go overseas.” In 1992, Mr Smith was six months into a Bachelor of Dance at Queensland University of Technology when he auditioned for Cats and was offered a contract immediately. “Cats was like the pinnacle of the dance world at the time, so it was a big opportunity,” he says. He never returned to university, landing job after job from that point on, beginning with the original Australian tour of Cats, followed by Singapore, Hong Kong and Seoul. After three years in the Australian production, he went on to perform in the German and Belgian productions. From there he was offered a job in Miss Saigon in Holland, where he lived for two years before returning to Australia in 1998. “I was ready to settle down and not be on tour all the time,” he says. “But the Australian market was very limited and it was hard to get work for a couple of years. I worked in hospitality and it was a bit of a wake-up call.” While in Holland, he’d auditioned for Cirque du Soleil and didn’t make it past the first audition, however a fascination for the groundbreaking new circus had been awakened. “I remember when I went to see Cirque I thought it’s one of those shows where you’re going to see circus animals. It was Saltimbanco and I remember walking out and thinking, wow, this is insane. It was a whole new breed of circus.” When he auditioned again a couple of years later and again failed to make it in, he was disheartened and decided to leave Sydney and create a new life for himself on the Sunshine Coast.
Darren Smith at his studio in Warana “I’d been working in bars and making coffee and doing whatever was available,” he says. “I had a dream I could start a business in the boating world.” He started Cruiz Away River Tours, taking trips around the Mooloolah River National Park from The Wharf at Moolooaba and had settled into a new life when out of the blue, he got a call from Cirque du Soleil. “They said we’ve had you on the books and we want you for a new show in Vegas,” he says. “My brain had already switched off and I was just starting to get into the Sunshine Coast lifestyle. My first thought was, I can’t go because I’ve got a business, but my brother and mum were really supportive and said they could run the business without me.” He found himself on a plane to Montreal to rehearse for Kà, Cirque du Soleil’s show at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas, which he performed in from 2003 to 2009. “It was one of the most extravagant productions, they spent $180 million,” he says. “They had flying stages, it was crazy.
Darren (left) with Marylene Hickok in Cirque du Soleil’s Kà “The scale of the Cirque du Soleil headquarters in Montreal was mindblowing. If you can imagine the Caloundra Indoor Stadium – five of those lined up side by side full of circus stuff happening. It was pretty exciting to work there. “I never saw myself as doing a death defying job on a daily basis, but I’d be hanging 110 or 120 feet in the air above cement. We trained from 10 in the morning till 5pm, then we’d have makeup and costuming, the show would start at 7.30pm, then a second show at 10.30pm and we’d walk out at 1am. I found I’d be going to bed about 3 or 4am.”That was six days a week but sometimes you’d be in all week.” After his long run in the show and at the age of 33, he felt his body wasn’t coping as well with the demands of the job and decided to return home with his wife, but rather than having a big nest egg behind them, they found themselves back on the Sunshine Coast, starting from scratch. “We lost our house in the GFC,” he says. “We bought a house in 2005 and spent heaps of money on it and were going to make a profit and move back to Australia, but they foreclosed on the house. The market in Vegas was terrible. We had a US$320,000 value house and it dropped down to US$60,000. When we got back, we were back at square one.” But with the drive and determination that took him to great heights in his profession, Mr Smith has built a happy life here on the Coast with his wife and two young children, who both attend his acrobatics school. “When we got back we started the acro school and our boating business. We started off with three kids in the acrobatic school and now we have 800 students and run 80 to 90 classes a week. The good part about losing everything is when you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose.”

GET READY FOR also forecast to be double that available in Australia over the next 12 months, at 10 per cent versus five per cent. To take advantage of this theme you will need to head offshore or look at local companies with international business’ such as Boral and Ramsay Healthcare. Given economic risks in Australia, and the patchy track record our market has had in meeting earnings expectations, it is hard to go past companies with sound balance sheets. Our view is these companies should offer some defensive protection in the event that economic risks increase, but still have flexibility to pursue earnings accretive strategies, such as acquisitions or buybacks. ANZ is our preferred bank given it has one of the stronger capital ratios of the major banks, with its common equity tier-one ratio at 10.6 per cent, opening up the possibility of capital management early in 2018. Rio Tinto and Alumina Ltd are our preferred resources exposures from this perspective. It is anticipated global inflation will rise to 2.2 per cent from two per cent in 2018, driven by input cost pressures – namely energy prices – and tightening labour markets. Yet the scene in Australia is different, with spare capacity in labour markets and rising competition creating the risk of disinflation. We seek companies that have the ability to push through price increases that can either offset local disinflationary pressures or absorb the risks emanating from rising global inflation. AGL Energy is favourably exposed to higher electricity prices and has pushed through price rises to retail customers in the past year. From the team at Ords we wish you all the very best in 2018!
Troy Davey, Ord Minnett Buderim.
INVESTMENT THEMES IN 2018
rd Minnett still sees the Australian dollar falling against the US dollar, with the local economy remaining on a ‘steady-state’ path in terms of monetary and economic policy. This keeps our twin themes of ‘declining A$ versus US$’ and ‘global over local’ at front of mind when looking for places to invest in 2018. We have added two new themes – ‘inflation beneficiaries’ and ‘balance sheet appeal’ – to our process. We continue to see the Australian dollar versus US dollar exchange rate declining, to $US0.72 by the end of calendar year 2018. Many of the reasons for forecasting a lower local currency in 2018 are familiar – narrowing interest rate differentials between the US and Australia, China slowing down, and soft commodity price growth. Another factor could be widening corporate tax differentials with the US, if the US government is successful in legislating tax reforms. For pure currency exposure, an exchange traded fund such as the Betashares US Dollar ETF (ASX code: USD) may work. The global economy is expected to sustain above-trend 3.2 per cent real GDP growth in 2018. Compositionally, this assumes better growth in emerging markets such as India and Latin America, a modest slowdown in China’s growth, and a steady Europe and US. By comparison, economic growth in Australia is set to come in at a below-average pace of 2.8 per cent. Corporate earnings growth overseas is

MUSIC MAN’S COLLECTIVE AMBITIONS PAY OFF
LOCALS WAXING LYRICAL
Buddina-based Barry Bull continues to spread his love of music – and he has an ARIA award to prove it. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
usic has always been in Barry Bull’s veins. The Buddina musician and former owner of the iconic Toombul Music in Brisbane is continuing to embrace his passion, but in a new way. Mr Bull began compiling his hugely successful Music for Cruizin’ double CDs in 2008. He has sold more than 45,000 units of these collections, earning him an ARIA gold album award in 2014. Mr Bull, who owned Toombul Music for 27 years from 1981 to 2008 and featured artists such as John Farnham and Jimmy
Barnes in his renowned shopping centre appearances, says he moved to the Sunshine Coast to “try to retire”. But he ended up seeing a gap in the market for music compilations featuring the best songs of the ’50s to the ’80s that baby boomers would enjoy listening to on their long caravanning road trips. “I wanted the CDs to be like a good radio station, which can be hard to come by when you are on rural roads and can’t pick up a good radio signal,” he says. “When we first released them, they went gangbusters and over the years Sony Music has encouraged me to release more and I have ended up with 14. “It was great because I spent so many years in the music industry helping artists to get their own ARIA by selling their product, and now I have my own. It was a real thrill.” Mr Bull says compiling a CD is much more complicated than just throwing 45 songs together. “You have to think of the flow of it, balance out the male and female voices and also the tempo,” he says. “When doing a double CD set, you also
have to ensure that the mood is similar on each album. “Then there is a fall-out rate. I will not get permission to use all of the songs I’d like to use and superstars like Neil Diamond will never give permission for their songs to be used in compilations. “But it is a fun process and it comes down to knowing the music and knowing what people want.” Working from his Buddina home office, the 75-year-old says he gets tremendous satisfaction knowing people around the country approve of his compilations. “I have been able to tap into my 30-year retail experience and resurrect my career, remain relevant in the industry and share the music with my customers. It’s what I’ve been doing all my life,” he says. When he’s not working on his next release, Mr Bull is a volunteer radio operator for the Mooloolaba Surf Club, and runs the successful annual Gift of Sound fundraising concert.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
The lunar eclipse activates your hopes and wishes zone, so it’s a wonderful week to expand (or re-visit) your goals for 2018. Don’t be half-hearted. Make your dreams as big and beautiful as you possibly can!
This week’s lunar eclipse sees you swing between being sexy and secretive; and being passionate and possessive. You could also be thrust into the public spotlight, so make sure you’re putting on a damn good show.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Sagittarians are the zodiac meisters of excess. Moderation and common sense fly out the window this week as you party to the max, spend too much, overdo just about everything and/or make some messy mistakes. But you’ll certainly have a lot of fun!
The lunar eclipse shines a spotlight on lust and loot. An intimate relationship could soar spectacularly – or crash and burn. And you need to keep up to speed with money matters. If you are responsible and well-informed, then it will pay off.
Many Aquarians are (or were) rebels at heart including Yoko Ono and James Dean. But remember there’s a fine line between being rebellious and just plain reckless. You’re impatient for change, especially involving a major relationship.
The lunar eclipse stimulates your wellbeing zone. So strive to be more proactive about your health, diet and fitness. Are you spending too many hours sitting on your posterior? Perhaps you could buy a stand-up desk, or slot in more exercise breaks.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23) Life at planet Virgo can sometimes resemble being in the army, as your days are organised with military precision and you try to get everything just right. But this week there’s a fiery lunar eclipse. So strive to be more spontaneous.

COUNTDOWN TO CONSTRUCTION AT SAGE LANDING
COAST RENTALS IN HIGH DEMAND
It’s a great time to be a property investor on the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he rental market on the Sunshine Coast is the strongest it has ever been, with Caloundra taking out the title of the tightest vacancy rates in the state in the Real Estate Industry Queensland’s latest figures. The area known by the REIQ as the ‘Caloundra Coast’ has recorded a vacancy rate of just 0.6 per cent. It is a low that hasn’t been reached in this area since the December 2014 quarter. The Sunshine Coast hinterland, wider Sunshine Coast (including Noosa), Sunshine Coast Statistical Division (excluding Noosa) and Noosa on its own make up the top five tightest rental markets, while Brisbane city languishes within the weak market category with a vacancy rate of 3.6 per cent. Harcourts Caloundra principal Luke Carter says he is not surprised by the results, with his agency’s records showing a 0.5 per cent vacancy rate for the majority of November, which lowered further to 0.4 per cent by the end of last month. “There was a week in the middle of October where we didn’t have a single property vacant on our rent roll,” Mr Carter says. “We have been getting multiple applications on properties as soon as they come to the market. One property in Pelican Waters had the same tenant for the past four years, with the rent going up every year, achieving great results for the landlord and when it became available for rent at $425 a week, it was rented in just 20 minutes. The bottom end rents under $450 a week are heavily sought after and even family homes that are in the high-400s up to $550 a week are also being snapped up. “On the higher end, larger properties that are $600-plus a week traditionally sat around for a while, but they are also very active at the moment.” Mr Carter says Caloundra has become a highly-sought after location for investors due to the high demand of renters across all
“There was a week in October when we didn’t have a single property vacant on our rent roll” Luke Carter – Harcourts Caloundra
demographics looking for a home that is close to the popular Shelley, Moffat and Dicky Beach areas, which have enjoyed a “massive resurgence”. “The amount of stock in those areas is at all-time low, so there are limited properties to buy or rent in,” he says. “What this means is there is strength in the market with homes for sale being snapped up as investments largely due to the strength of the Brisbane market flowing into Caloundra, which is what we have seen from our enquiries.
“Caloundra was one of the first settled areas on the Sunny Coast, the reason being it has the most beautiful coastline and for a time, Caloundra was a bit daggy but it has become new again with nice restaurants, cafes and bars opening up. People from Brisbane have always had a strong affiliation with Caloundra due to the fact it is the closest Coast suburb to the city.” While this environment provides a healthy market for sellers, with demand far outstripping supply, REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says tenants may struggle to secure rental accommodation in this region. “It is fair to say this area would benefit from additional supply being built to help improve market conditions,” she says. Mr Carter says this means renters need to have a good, strong application. “Landlords and property managers are spoilt for choice and can pick the best. “People who don’t pay their rent on time, or who don’t look after their houses and have a mark on their rental history for not being good tenants will be facing an uphill battle,” he says. “Before applying for a rental home, make sure you present the best application possible and have everything ready that is required. Spend the time to put attention and effort into your application. If you have a strong application, a property manager will want to be managing you.” Mr Carter also advises renters to get in touch with an agent to see which properties are available and to advise them of the type of property they are looking to rent so they can assist with communicating when one matching their requirements becomes available. “A good property manager will take their time to get multiple applications for a property and assess each one, so if you are a great applicant and you miss out on a property, they will still want you on their rent roll and will try to help you find another opportunity.”

With civil works now nearing completion at the Sage Landing development in Buderim, construction will soon begin, generating more than 60 local jobs. HMR Projects director Ken Reed says Devcon Building Co — the builder appointed to construct stage one of the development — will kick-start works in early February. “While the heavy rainfall experienced in November certainly put us to the test, we are looking forward to wrapping up civil works and commencing construction of the 13 designer homes,” Mr Reed says. “All 13 homes in stage one will be built together, with construction expected to conclude by the end of July 2018.” Mr Reed says during peak periods, he anticipates between 25 and 30 tradespeople will be working on-site each day. “As a long-term local myself, I have always placed priority on using locals to contribute to the Sunshine Coast economy,” he says. “Devcon shares our commitment and this was one of the reasons why we opted to bring them on board to construct Sage Landing.” Mr Reed says a mix of single-level, low set homes as well as larger, double-storey houses will be built as part of stage one.

with MWP’s man in the water
So, they are saying the biggest wave ever ridden happened at Nazare on January 17. Given the previous record was 108 foot, that is pretty huge effort. Double yikes. So the crowds have gone and now it is our turn. Boy there were some crowded sessions. A report at Carties was 55 in the water and given only a small take-off zone, that is pretty insane. That said, a few windows open up for the brave with some solo sessions and no crowds. I got up at 4.30am only to see guys already out in the water…what the? Hopefully you scored. Looks like waves over the weekend with SE winds and some rain. Hopefully it keeps it clean. Great whites sharks have been spotted at all points so consider that. Nah…just kidding.
