T

his week’s cover story, written by Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane, has created a bit of a stir in the office. It raised some interesting questions. It also got many of us thinking about our prized and not-so-prized possessions (such as the fondue pot that has been tucked away in the back of a kitchen cupboard unused for eight years). And, in more serious cases (mine), it has triggered a rather early spring clean. I now have three garbage bags full of clothes on the way to a Bloomhill Cancer Care Op Shop – and this is the product of only 10 minutes spent in my closet. The minimalist movement is creeping its way into many homes around the world. For some people, it’s a matter of de-cluttering and placing more worth on future purchases. For others – those who have been at the centre of our conversations this week – it has taken on a life on its own. One renowned minimalist claims to own only 15 items. As one colleague exclaimed: “How? How is this possible?” I hope you are as fascinated with Roxanne’s investigation into the movement, as we are. You can read the story on page 10. In this edition we also have one of our favourite sections, My travel. It’s sure to provide plenty of inspiration for your journeys through 2018.

QUICK CHAT

A LIFE WELL LIVED Where do you live? My family and I have just returned home after living in a quiet country town in Japan for two years. I have family on the Sunshine Coast and for now we will stay in Palmwoods. First job? My first paid job came when I just turned 13, washing dishes for a busy restaurant. I made $3 an hour, and for a weekend of work, I had enough money to buy a Mighty Ducks cap and a 30-cent cone from Macca’s. The rest I saved. What are you currently working on? I am working on many projects and perhaps the one I am most passionate about is getting my new book published. It’s called The Ultimate Life Map – The Paths Towards Greater Freedom, Fulfilment and Happiness. I will also be launching a one-day program here on the Coast early this year that aligns perfectly with the book.

Leigh Martinuzzi BIO

IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON

Your family includes… My wife Anita and two girls, Arya (five) and Tauriel (two).

What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? I love it all. I think there are pockets of “awesomeness” all along the Coast no matter your tastes. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I would have loved to bring the Japan seasons back with me. It would probably disappoint many people, but I loved them. Best day in your life? I’ve had so many. But perhaps the day my first daughter was born. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? As a real estate agent, I was delivering flyers one day and about halfway through my run I pulled over and took my helmet off and reflected on what I was doing. It didn’t make a whole lot of sense. It gave me no great feeling of significance, meaning or fulfilment. I loved being in sales but that day began the ball rolling to pursue a different path in life.

“Everything we do are lessons of life. Keep doing and keep moving forward”

First car? A 1966 Volkswagen Beetle. In my uni days it used to get me from Brisbane to Cairns and back during the summer holidays. Favourite book? It’s hard to go past Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, but one of my favourites in 2017 is a book called How Emotions Are Made by Lisa Feldman Barrett. What are you reading now? Addiction by Candice Shelby, Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, and Bored and Brilliant by Manoush Zomorodi. Best advice you’ve been given? My father gave me some great advice when I was about 19 years old. He said words to this effect, “Don’t be ashamed or upset about the decisions you make or the experiences you have. Everything we do are lessons of life. Keep doing and keep moving forward.” I think the best thing we can all do in life is to have a wider amount of experiences.

What achievement are you most proud of? My two girls. You are happiest when? I am writing.

What frustrates you the most? Close-minded people. I dislike when people judge someone else before understanding and then being closed to developing their knowledge. I also hate when people don’t act on what they say they will. I believe most of what frustrates me are signs of things I need to work on. How do you deal with your frustrations? In greater awareness. Mindfulness and meditation have been the best things I’ve done to help me develop awareness. If you could tell your 18 year-old self anything what would it be? If what you do every day is not bringing you joy then take action and do something to change it. Life is long and beautiful but short and sufferable when you are not living it fully.

COVER STORY

THE RISE OF THE MINIMALIST It’s never been easier, or cheaper, to fill our lives and homes with stuff, but a global backlash to consumerism has sparked a new wave of minimalists. My Weekly Preview talks to those who are leading the charge. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“Although Australians are big consumers, the minimalist message is resonating” The Minimalists: Ryan Nicodemus (left) and Joshua Fields Millburn IMAGE: JOSHUA WEAVER

“L

ove people and use things, because the opposite never works.” It is a motto coined by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, who are collectively known as The Minimalists. The duo, who are based in California, have inspired millions around the world with their lifestyle – they have forgone high-flying corporate careers with six-figure salaries in favour of downsizing and living a more conscious and happier life. There have been many incarnations of minimalism, from the extremes of those who literally keep a cap on the number of possessions they can own, like technology mogul Andrew Hyde who claims to own only 15 items, to people like Japan’s Marie Kondo, who encourages people to de-clutter and surround themselves with items that bring them joy. The Minimalists, which formed in 2010 when the long-time friends decided to take their leap of faith into counter-culture, are preparing to connect with Australian audiences as they bring their Less is Now tour to Brisbane Showgrounds on March 11 before heading off to Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. Speaking to My Weekly Preview from California, Mr Fields Millburn says the average American household has 300,000 items in it and after his first visit to Australia in 2014, he thinks we are quickly catching up on the consumerism front. In fact, the Australian Retailers

10 My Weekly Preview | February 2, 2018

10.indd 1

Association predicted consumers nationwide would spend $50 billion in retail stores from November 15 to December 24, 2017 and Roy Morgan Research showed the biggest growing retail category according to spend was electrical goods, with a 9.49 per cent year-on-year increase as households scramble to get their hands on the latest gadgets. Mr Fields Millburn says although Australians are big consumers, the minimalist message is resonating with more people per capita here than anywhere else in the world. The Minimalists’ 2014 tour ended with events in Sydney and Melbourne and they ended up attracting the largest audiences of any of the 100 cities and 119 events they had visited that year. Their podcast has also been in the top 100 on Australian playlists for more than 500 days. “I think part of that is because the American dream of the fancy house, 2.5 kids and 1.45 pets and all of the luxury items you can have in the home has permeated your borders. But we are learning that the American dream is a bit flawed and it’s not a one-size-fits-all template, so maybe you don’t want to emulate it,” he says. Mr Fields Millburn owns 288 things and one of them is the California home he shares with his wife and four-year-old daughter. He doesn’t make a habit of counting his items, but it’s a question he gets asked regularly. What he can do is testify that every single one of those items serves a

purpose and none of them is in his home ‘just because’. “I want to own things that are appropriate for my life, and that’s why I don’t own just 15 things,” he says. “I like having a coffee table, I like having a vase to put flowers in, but everything we do own serves a purpose and brings me joy. “The truth is, many of the things I own augment my experience of life, but when I got rid of the stuff that didn’t matter, I realised that they had been getting in the

“Every cent you spend has come from you giving up part of your life to earn it, so it’s about becoming conscious of that cycle” way and had been keeping me from pursuing what a meaningful life is, so I can now make room for what is important.” The Minimalists have different backgrounds, but for Mr Fields Millburn, his move towards a minimalist lifestyle began after his mother passed away from lung cancer and his first marriage broke down in the same year. When he flew to Florida to pack up his mother’s home, he found 65 years’ worth of accumulated possessions. “I already had a big house full of stuff, so

I was going to rent a storage locker for her things. I was prepared to spend $120 a month in perpetuity to keep her things just in case,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “There were stacks of old boxes and I found four that had my elementary school paperwork in it and when I went through it, all these memories came rushing back. I wondered why she was holding onto these things, then I realised she was holding onto a piece of me. Only, these boxes had obviously been sealed up for two decades, so she hadn’t been accessing the memories in those boxes. “It made me realise that our memories aren’t in our things, they are in us. It was a reset moment for me and I realised I had been focused on the wrong stuff – material things.” Realising that he was relocating those boxed memories into a “bigger box with a padlock on it”, Mr Fields Millburn decided to select a handful of things from his mother’s home and sell or donate the rest. “I have got much more from those things over time than I would have from keeping the hundreds of items,” he says. Mr Fields Millburn says once he started to downsize his lifestyle, his stress levels decreased and he began to enjoy a happier life by spending time and money having experiences and going on adventures with the people he cared about. Co-authoring the book Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life was a life-changing moment for Mr Fields Millburn and Mr Nicodemus and the release of Minimalism: myweeklypreview.com.au

29/01/2018 2:42:30 PM


COVER STORY A Documentary About the Important Things on Netflix in December 2016 made them the poster boys of the minimalist movement. Mr Fields Millburn says they don’t have a “grandiose vision of changing the world”. “What we do want is to be able to help people by sharing a recipe that has worked well for me and Ryan, and they can squeeze out a few ingredients and apply them to their own lives,” he says. “It starts with each individual person choosing to live more deliberately and being more selective about the things they surround themselves with. You don’t even have to call yourself a minimalist. In fact, when you walk into my home, you wouldn’t think ‘Oh my God, this guy’s a minimalist’, you would just think ‘he’s pretty tidy’. The Minimalists are now working on another documentary, Less is Now, which will focus on the 45-minute talk they have taken around the world as well as tell the duo’s backgrounds and how they were inspired to transform their lifestyles to show their pre- and post-minimalist lives.

WHERE TO START? • Take small steps – nobody can clear out 60 per cent of their household in one fell swoop. Start with one drawer or cupboard at a time until you build momentum. • Scan all of your photos and store them in the cloud. This way you will declutter photo albums and safeguard your photos from flood or fire. • Use the six-month rule. If you haven’t used it in the past six months and don’t plan to use it for the next six months, consider selling or donating it. • When preparing for a minimalist Christmas, consider the saying, ‘One thing they want, one thing they need, one thing they’ll wear, one thing they’ll read.’ • When it comes to buying new toys for the kids, limit bringing new things into the house to birthdays and Christmas.

MINIMALISM DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS Caloundra mother-of-two Carly WilloughbyRolls had a fairly simple upbringing, but once she found independence and a high-paying job in her twenties, she made the most of her disposable income. “I bought all of the best brands, which is what everyone did before fast fashion arrived… I was getting into the best nightclubs and it all relied on looking good, buying the right clothes and shopping in the right places, which got you connected to the right people,” she says. “When I saved up for my first house, I filled up every room with furniture and other things. But the crux for me came when I got pregnant and started to settle down and I realised I had a house full of stuff I really didn’t need anymore.” Ms Willoughby-Rolls says stepping back from being career-driven six years ago brought a new perspective to her life and she started learning “how to make house” and was immediately drawn into the expansive world of baby products. It was while scrolling through blogs about being a stay-at-home mum that she stumbled on a blog post about minimalism and dismissed it at first.“I still loved shopping and the finer things in life, so I decided it was not for me,” she admits. “But then I started to read about how becoming minimalists and consuming and

AWAKEN YOUR CHILD’S POTENTIAL

buying less meant people were able to buy better-quality things that they did need and obviously that appealed to my reforming shopaholic, former designer self.” Ms Willoughby-Rolls says she can now walk through a department store without spending a cent on a number of products if it means she can later walk into a designer store and buy one high-quality item. She took a further step in her transition to a minimalist lifestyle when she came across Marie Kondo’s book The LifeChanging Magic of Tidying Up, and began to further “de-clutter and de-own”. She started sharing her lifestyle on social media and found people were asking her how to begin their foray into minimalism. It was then that Minimalista was born. “The process of de-owning and learning to live with less was really a huge mindshift, but it means I have less cleaning and organising to do, so I have more time to spend with the family and my friends and enjoy the Sunshine Coast lifestyle, because I am not worried about accumulating things and working so hard to earn money only to be in debt after buying more things.” Ms Willoughby-Rolls admits it can be an extra challenge for families to adopt a minimalist lifestyle because children are already expert consumers thanks to the amount of advertising they are exposed to from birth. But she says it is simply a matter of being on the same page as your partner, or any other adults in the house, and setting the example for children to follow. And she says minimalism is not an “all or nothing” lifestyle. “It doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process and every person’s goal is different,” she says. “It comes back to the definition of minimalism, which for me is living more consciously and intentionally. Every cent you spend has come from you giving up part of your life to earn it, so it’s about becoming conscious of that cycle and who we are giving our money to.” Ms Willoughby-Rolls will be hosting workshops throughout the year. You can find out more at minimalista.com.au or following @minimalista.com.au on Instagram.

WHEN ALL YOU OWN FITS IN A SUITCASE Coolum filmmaker Peter John hasn’t had a fixed place of residence for two years, and he couldn’t be happier. The 37-year-old underwent a huge lifestyle shift when he moved from Melbourne to the Coast six years ago. He downsized his possessions so he could fit everything into his Troopcarrier while making the journey north and he has been progressively shedding possessions ever since. With his business, Epik Films, attracting clients from around the globe, Mr John spends as much as nine months of the year abroad or interstate, so he decided two years ago he would no longer rent and downsized even further, to literally the contents of one suitcase and a backpack for his filming gear. “Technology has revolutionised what I do and I realised I could do my job anywhere if I had a bit of WiFi and some power,” he says. “I can go anywhere, anytime without having to go back home and pick stuff up or drop stuff off. Mr John lives in hotels or rented homes when he is on location and stays with friends when he is home on the Coast. “When life is simpler, you get to enjoy the time you have in the present.”

CHORES PERFORMANCE The two very talented acrobatic comedians in the show Chores had people of all ages in fits of laughter at the Lake Kawana Community Centre earlier this month. Chores is an action-packed show about two excitable brothers tasked with cleaning up their very messy room. The show featured plenty of mischief, daring stunts and giggle-inducing antics on stage, which kept the audience riveted for the entire event.

DYNAMIC DUO TIE FOR CITIZEN OF THE YEAR

Our children are safer thanks to the work of Bruce and Denise Morcombe, recipients of the Sunshine Coast’s top honour. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

W

hen you have individuals as iconic, dedicated and tireless as Bruce and Denise Morcombe, both nominated for the Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards Citizen of the Year, it is no wonder judges had a hard time deciding which of them should take out the top honour this year. So, they did the only thing they logically could do – awarded it to both of them at the special ceremony held at The Events Centre in Caloundra on January 23. Speaking to My Weekly Preview during a much-needed family holiday in Tasmania, Mrs Morcombe says the icing on the cake was seeing the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, which they set up in memory of their son, who was abducted and murdered in 2003, also take out the Community Group or Organisation award. The foundation assists educators and parents to teach children about their personal safety, help young victims of crime and empower people to make their local communities safer for children. Mrs Morcombe says their small team of staff and large team of volunteers work tirelessly on many different aspects of child safety that the wider community doesn’t know about. “We have done a lot over the years with the limited money that we have, most of which is received from mums and dads and gold coin donations from school fundraisers for Day for Daniel each year,” she says. “We have just over 20 videos on our website that anyone can watch for free with different child safety messages, as well as apps and games that guide children through ways to keep themselves safe. “We have also helped a lot of child

had a hard time separating the Morcombes when it came to choosing the Citizen of the Year. “The work Bruce and Denise have done for our community, and many other communities across Queensland, has and will continue to help protect our youngest citizens from harm,” he says. “Their dedication to promoting child safety is honourable and this award is one way we are able to show our appreciation for their work.” The 2018 Australia Day Award recipients were nominated by the community and selected by a panel of local leaders and experts, including the 2017 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Young Citizen of the Year award recipient, Jak Hardy.

Mayor Mark Jamieson, Daniel Morcombe Foundation CEO Holly Brennan, Bruce and Denise Morcombe victims of crime, those who have been sexually abused or who have had a family member murdered. It is the most heartwrenching part of what we do, but also the most rewarding.” Mrs Morcombe says they often don’t meet these young people, but they receive applications from the Department of Child Safety or homicide support groups requesting assistance and they allocate funds for school supplies or support services to help them to get back on track. “We also have the Walk Tall Program, which we run with two counsellors out of the office at the Big Pineapple to assist children from Gympie down to Caboolture,” she says. “It provides counselling and emotional support to children and adolescents on the

Coast who have either experienced or are at risk of physical, emotional and/or sexual harm.” The Morcombes have taken a step back from organising the annual Dance for Daniel, which will be held in Brisbane Town Hall on March 10, and the Day for Daniel, which is held on the last Friday of October each year, but their schedule is still packed. Having already spoken to children from more than 500 Queensland schools and another 100 interstate, the couple will continue with their busy schedule of school visits this year. “We already have the next six months worth of schools already booked and locked in to start in five weeks’ time,” Mrs Morcombe says.

WOMEN’S SAILING TEAM OFF TO NATIONAL REGATTA The Sunreef Women’s Sailing Team representing Mooloolaba Yacht Club (MYC) will be competing for the first time at the Australian Women’s Keelboat Regatta (AWKR) this year. The Regatta, hosted by the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron from June 9 to 11, is Australia’s premier and longest running women’s regatta, with teams from around Australia and New Zealand to compete this year in the 28th annual event. MYC representative Tracey Johnstone says 2012 Canadian Olympic Laser Radial class representative Danielle Kennedy and offshore champion sailor Stuart Kennedy have stepped up as team coaches.

BIG PLANS FOR STOCKLAND CALOUNDRA There may be big changes ahead for the Stockland Caloundra shopping centre, with a development application lodged to the Sunshine Coast Council last week proposing an increase in size from 15,830 metres squared to 23,153 metres squared. The proposed expansion includes a six-theatre cinema, a tavern and new speciality stores and will adjoin the eastern and western sides of First Avenue as well as taking in the block surrounded by Mayes Avenue, Second Avenue and Oval Avenue, which is filled with homes. Stockland gained approval in 2014 but its plans have since changed. There are no proposed construction start times as yet.

BOARD MEETING CALLS FOR GUARDIANS

The new Maroochydore CBD will spring to life in the coming months when more than 320 hoop pine, Moreton Bay ash and other trees are planted. A tree-lined boulevard, shaded pedestrian areas, cycle and walkways and a public park will help bring the CBD into reality. Landscape architect and Vee Design director Trish Menzies says the first phase of the project is eight hectares and incorporates the streets of the CBD’s core commercial zone, as well as a large public square. “Hundreds of trees as well as 12,000 shrubs and groundcovers have been chosen to provide a mixture of shade, contrast and colour,” Ms Menzies says. “Hoop pine trees will serve as gateways at each junction and mature trees will be planted at every corner to provide a splash of colour and accent.”

Inspirational celebrity chef Matt Golinski will join forces with Mix FM’s Todd Widdicombe (pictured) to present The Board Meeting’s annual Guardian Program Charity Dinner on February 23. Tickets are available for the three-course dinner, which will raise muchneeded funds for respite care for families with severely disabled children. The dinner is also a call to action for members of the community to get on board as ‘guardians’ to become regular contributors assisting these families on an ongoing basis.

Healthy Sunshine Coast offers a range of free or low-cost activities designed to improve health and wellbeing. Since the launch of the program in 2016, thousands of people have already started to feel the benefits of a healthy mind and Yoga NRG instructor Tammy Williams body. Community portfolio (front right) with other Healthy Sunshine Coast participants councillor Jenny McKay says the award-winning Healthy Sunshine Coast program will return in 2018 with new and exciting additions to the program, including new free and low-cost classes at Alexandra Headland, Nambour, Beerwah and Kenilworth.

Two local Caloundra fire and emergency services personnel – senior firefighter Greg Toman and brigade training support officer Shaune Toohey – were awarded State Government Australia Day Achievement medallions. Mr Toman was recognised for his significant involvement in the development of QFES’ specialist remote rescue team, while Mr Toohey was awarded for his high level of leadership that was demonstrated during the rollout of the Government Wireless Network (GWN) project.

FREE FITNESS PROGRAM EXTENDED

349 BUDERIM FOUNDATION PUMPS UP THE VOLUME The Buderim Foundation has launched a year-long Community Challenge to increase grants from $1.4 million to a minimum of $2 million in just 12 months. Buderim Foundation chair Russell Stitz says the idea behind it is simple – the more money invested means more grants can be given out to help community organisations reach their full potential. The 2018 Community Challenge celebrates 10 years of giving by the Foundation. The first grants, distributed in 2008, totalled just over $13,000. Last year grants, worth $64,000 were distributed, bringing the total for the decade to almost $400,000. To find out more or make a donation, visit buderimfoundation.org.au, email info@buderimfoundation.org.au or call 5456 1757.

The Sunshine Coast Council’s new executive members were introduced at the council’s first public meeting of the year, with three newcomers being chosen from 349 applicants. They include Sydney consulting executive Jeanette Allom-Hill as group executive of business performance and former Townsville City Council director James Ruprai as group executive of customer engagement and planning services. Current Deputy Director-General of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Graham Fraine, is now the council’s chief strategy officer and council staffer Tom Jamieson, who is not related to the mayor, has been promoted to group executive of built infrastructure.

CUTE CRITTERS FIND HOMES IN 54 NESTING BOXES Work to monitor the movements of native fauna continues for the Coolum and North Shore Coast Care (CaNSCC) after the organisation received funding through the Queensland Government Community Sustainability Action Grants. CaNSCC received its first funding in 2000 to install nesting boxes in Bushland Reserves around the Coolum-Yaroomba area. The 54 boxes provide homes for small animals and the latest monitoring data recorded 42.5 per cent of the boxes were used by six native species including native bees, owlet-nightjars, squirrel gliders and three species of possums.

PROFILE

FORCE OF NATURE After conquering the world of publishing, Heidi Meyer has turned her attention to creating Buderim’s largest development. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

IMAGE: RIKKI LANCASTER

L

ike King Midas, it seems everything Heidi Meyer touches turns to gold. The woman behind Buderim’s proposed $100-million Badderam eco-resort has led an adventurous life, and says the many glamorous paths she’s taken have led her to where she is today. To be the visionary and creative director of what could be the largest development project Buderim has ever seen – a zero-waste seven-star luxury resort – you’d have to be smart, determined and full of positive energy, and that’s exactly how Mrs Meyer comes across. Born in the Blue Mountains, she grew up in Katoomba and spent a lot of time exploring nature with her bushwalking father, a Dutch immigrant and passionate landscape architect who taught her to care for the natural world. Mrs Meyer hails from a hardworking Dutch family – her grandfather made Australia’s first seatbelts – and the spirit of entrepreneurship was instilled in her at a young age. “I was raised very entrepreneurially to go out and seek to create your own business,” she says. “There wasn’t another way of thinking in my family. My grandparents and parents set an example and at the time I didn’t realise it, but it was a gift.” As a savvy young woman, Mrs Meyer started her own business importing essential oils from France at the age of 15 and sold it for $130,000 at the age of 19, giving her the funds to set off on a 12-month solo backpacking adventure across six continents, eventually arriving in London to look for work. Providence struck when she landed a catering job for the then CEO of Time Warner, Michel Pepe, who heard her laughing in the kitchen and came to tell her how bad her broccoli was. When she admitted she wasn’t a chef, he invited her to his office on Monday morning. “He said, ‘I’d like to talk to you about your career.’ That was a golden moment,” Mrs Meyer says. “I could have gone, ‘no I don’t think I’m up for that’. It was a life-changing moment of seizing the opportunity and saying yes. Of course, I had fear. Do I have any fear about being a new developer, a woman developer at the age of 42 on the Sunshine Coast in a predominately male-dominated industry working on a $100-million-dollar project? Yes, I do have fear, but you have to feel the fear and do it anyway.” Mr Pepe encouraged her to go into publishing, and though

Heidi Meyer with daughter Chalcot and husband Kim Carroll she had no experience, he offered her work on InStyle magazine and she later moved to Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. “Working for women’s magazines in London gives you the opportunity to find out what you love and being in that magazine world is a stepping stone that provides you with extraordinary contacts and skills, a black book that opens the world for you to be able to step into whatever is next for you. “I started out as the ‘celebrity wrangler’, quickly moving my way into a place I felt more credible, writing about and styling celebrity homes. It was a normal day to fly from London to Santa Monica in the US to interview a Hollywood A-lister on the finer details of the interior of their home.” At the age of 25 she was headhunted to work for a new luxury celebrity travel title called Jaunt and and developed a penchant for luxurious getaways as she worked on photo shoots with the likes of Kate Moss in an oasis outside Marrakesh, Heidi Klum in a lagoon in Iceland and the Spice Girls in a hot tub in the Maldives, later joining the prestigious

Condé Nast Traveler magazine. It was during this time she learnt about luxury resorts and the habits of wealthy people who consume luxury travel, which is often far from eco-friendly. She began to take notice of how she felt travel needed to evolve to become more sustainable. As a travel writer, she has written the ‘sustainability’ notes on more than 900 luxury hotels, providing the background homework for Badderam. Her experience as a travel journalist led her to found the UK-based Yohm Retreat & Spa Company (now owned by In:spa Retreats), providing executive wellness retreats hosted in castles, chateaus and heritage properties around the world. While based in London, Mrs Meyer became a founding member of The Women’s Foundation, a charity that trained prostitutes and abused women for new careers and was invited to have lunch with Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace. “Through our work, we and several other women’s charities were invited to a lunch with the Queen for her to say thank you,” she says. “She talked to everybody personally, held our hands – she’s a beautiful and gracious dignitary. She’s an extraordinary role model – she’s selfless in the way she serves. She’s very earthy; she’s always got her gumboots on and is always up at Balmoral in the vegie garden.” During her 18-plus years in Europe and the Americas, Mrs Meyer studied interior design and architecture, her true passion. She had bought her first investment property in Noosa at the age of 30, with a view to settling on the Sunshine Coast one day, and it was during a visit to Noosa that she met her husband, Kim Carroll, a born and bred Sunny Coast local, and had their daughter Chalcot Darcy Clementine, now four. They’re a true husband and wife team, with Mr Carroll taking on the role of investment director at Badderam. After marrying “the world’s best husband” and having her child, Mrs Meyer sees Badderam as her greatest achievement. “I’ve been a leader and not a conformist,” she says. “We have already made a way for ourselves and our family and we’ve retired at a young age. You then ask yourself, what can I do to give back? It’s part of your social responsibility to give back. If you’re going to live in a region you really enjoy, you want to make sure the region thrives. All of my life, everything I’ve ever done in life are pieces of a puzzle that have led to this point.”

S

unshine Coast footy fans are gearing up for a triple-header unlike anything they have ever seen before – and it’s right in their own backyard. NRL and Super Rugby fever will hit the Sunshine Coast Stadium in an exciting fortnight of action with three high-profile pre-season games bringing some of the codes’ biggest names to the region. A Super Rugby pre-season clash between the Plus500 Brumbies and the Gallagher Chiefs will kick off the schedule on February 14, followed by two NRL pre-season trials on consecutive Saturdays – the Canterbury Bulldogs against the Canberra Raiders on February 17 and the Gold Coast Titans will play the New Zealand Warriors on February 24. It’s the first time two NRL trials have been played in the one year on the Sunshine Coast, while the Plus500 Brumbies versus Gallagher Chiefs clash will be a star-studded affair, with both Wallabies and All Blacks representatives expected to be called up to play. Tourism, sport and major events

Nathan Peats during a Gold Coast Titans training session at Cbus Stadium portfolio councillor Jason O’Pray says the Sunshine Coast has quickly gained a reputation as a preferred destination to stage national sporting, recreational and entertainment events.

“We know the Warriors are a big drawcard and it’s the first chance we’ve had to host the Titans, Bulldogs and Raiders in our backyard,” he says. “Super Rugby punters don’t miss out because the Plus500 Brumbies versus Gallagher Chiefs are going to be here in a full-scale hit-out for their new season. It’s the type of game that our rugby lovers will be over the moon to see right here on the Coast.” Cr O’Pray says the six teams have confirmed they will hold fan meet and greet sessions and will visit a few schools and communities while they are in the region. “These high-profile games will definitely boost the local economy and once again cement the Sunshine Coast Stadium as the premier venue for sporting and national events in the region,” he says. For those who really love their footy, there are packages available to enhance game days even more, with Ultimate Fan Experience and VIP Corporate hospitality packages available, as well as Ultimate League Legend deals for those who want to watch both NRL pre-season games.

IN DEVELOPMENT

W

hile we were away over Christmas, there were a few major themes developing in global markets. We have outlined some major points below. • Major US tax reform approved – In late December, President Donald Trump signed into law a new major tax bill, which among other things cuts the US corporate tax rate from 35 to 21 per cent this year. While the tax cut is a positive, it’s important to note that there are other changes in the bill that may offset some of the benefits, for example, some companies face caps on their interest expense deductions. Therefore, the impact will vary between companies, and in some cases may be negative. We expect companies to outline the implications ahead of or during reporting season in February. Overall though, we see the tax changes as a favourable

myweeklypreview.com.au

development for most Australian companies with US operations. Those in our preferred lists that could benefit include Aristocrat, Boral, and QBE Insurance. QBE and Boral generate around 30 to 40 per cent of revenues in the US. Aristocrat is around 60 per cent. • Bond tantrum returns – Rising bond yields are again weighing on the performance of ‘bond proxies’ such as property trusts and infrastructure companies. Given our house view is for global bond yields to rise this year as global inflation returns, this is not unexpected. For some time now we have recommended being more selective in this space, rotating away from those that are primarily valued for dividend yield and offer little to no earnings growth. But we still see appeal in owning some defensive assets in portfolios, especially to hedge against recession risks or risk aversion returning to markets, and prefer those defensives that are pursuing growth initiatives, mitigating the effect of rising bond yields. In some cases, we believe the sell-off has been overdone. For example, we estimate that a 100bp increase in long-end bond yields would knock 10 per cent off our valuation on APA. Our base case, however, is that 10-year bond yields in the US and Europe are likely to rise by a more moderate 50bp, and stay relatively flat in Australia. With APA’s shares down 11 per cent

(including dividend) since the end of November, it suggests the market has already priced in a significant rise in bond yields over and above our current forecast. • Mixed reviews for holiday retail sales – Selected retailers appear to have weathered the threats from Amazon and a weak consumer. Lovisa noted that Christmas and Boxing Day sales performed ahead of expectations and upgraded its guidance. JB Hi-Fi is also said to have had a solid trading period, leading the stock to regain share price momentum. However, our sense is that the experience across the sector has been mixed. With domestic specialty brands such as Diana Ferrari and Maggie T announcing plans to close, and others such as Retail Food Group and Myer announcing poor sales in the lead-up to Christmas, indications are that conditions are still difficult for retailers. We stay cautious on this sector, as we see consumers being challenged by poor wage growth, low savings rates and slowing property price growth, while the industry faces increasing competition.

LOOKING AFTER LOCALS Business owners and operators looking for a slice of $337 million are encouraged to sign up for Sunshine Coast Council’s upcoming supplier briefing, and a number of other free or low-cost workshops. Economic development portfolio councillor Stephen Robinson says around 70 per cent of council contracts are awarded to local suppliers, which equates to about $240 million each year for the local economy. “Understanding how to do business with council is critical if local businesses wish to increase their chances of success,” he says. The bi-annual supplier briefing, to be held at Lake Kawana Community Centre on February 6, will provide information about capital works and services contracts. Businesses wanting to understand the council’s procurement process can also attend a free ‘Doing Business with Council’ workshop on Friday, February 16. Go to sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Business.

Young people are an integral part of our community, the growth of our region and our future. It is imperative that council continues to tap into their enthusiasm, optimism, innovation and creativity to help shape our healthy, smart, creative region. That’s why we have developed our draft Sunshine Coast Youth Action Plan 2018-2021. It has been created to strengthen our commitment to our young people and to value their contributions to our region. It is available for community feedback until February 12 and I encourage you to share your views on the plan. It will ensure our young people are involved in decisions that impact their lives, and know they are supported to actively participate in community life, encouraged to develop their identity and independence, and assisted to take responsibility for themselves. That’s what being part of an engaged, progressive community is all about. This is one of many council plans and projects you can comment on – visit haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au to view other community engagement processes underway and check back in throughout the year.

MY OPINION

WHEN WINNING IS EVERYTHING

RIDING OFF INTO THE SUNSET

Sami Muirhead rediscovers her competitive spirit during a weekend away with her sister’s family where it’s all on for young and old.

Richard O’Leary is not sure whether it’s a mid-life crisis, but he’s thinking a lot about his final days and where he wants to spend them.

F

amily. The only people who can torment us and get away with it and who know us warts and all and still love us. I went away with my kids, my husband and my sister’s family and we spent the weekend doing some very Australian things at Rainbow Beach: paying each other out and trying our hardest to beat each other at everything. First, we spent the Friday night playing Monopoly with the kids. I soon figured out my sister’s family plays hard. They had accumulated more hotels and unit blocks than the Packer family on a real estate buying binge in Aspen. And they showed no mercy when my five-year-old landed on their pricey properties and instead cheered with glee at bankrupting him. But we were all laughing together. My sister played with the same tenacity when we played Monopoly as kids. This is the big sister who used to sell me her toys. Her kids have that same Aussie drive to succeed, whereas mine are more inclined to want to give the Monopoly properties they buy away to Greenpeace. After they destroyed us financially, we then switched to a game that is more suitable for young kids to play. It is actually called Poopy Head. If you lose this card game you have to wear a plastic poo on your head. Again, my sister’s older kids showed no mercy and my husband ended up wearing multiple blobs on his head. But again, it was wonderful to see the light bulbs starting to

switch on that it is okay to win. We perhaps need to teach that a little more in our house. On Sunday we went sand tobogganing. I use this term lightly, as we actually just trudged up a huge sand cliff with our boogie boards and some bits of cardboard. But hey, some would call us an elite toboggan team. I had actually forgotten how good it feels to try to win and to have a little boast about it. I have become so politically correct and so focused on being kind to everyone that the tiny part of me inside that loves to win had almost disappeared. It took climbing up the steep Carlo Sand Blow at Rainbow Beach with a flattened box from Dan Murphy’s under my arm to reignite my internal competitive drive. I went flying down that sand hill on my stomach like a woman possessed. I had to take my sister out. I did, in fact, go the longest distance at the base of the hill. My skinny sister claims it was my weight advantage. And the final night of the most fun weekend ever, there was still no peace treaty in place. We had a block of Snack chocolate. My sister and I are both massive Turkish delight fans. We always share this little bond that brings us together and simultaneously tears us apart in our quest to eat the last square of pink jelly. The trickery and treachery that went down that night could rival a Shakespeare play. What memories and what lessons from that weekend. Sisters. I feel so blessed to have mine.

ust like in the old cowboy movies, when my time is up I intend to ride off into the sunset never to be seen again. Although I probably won’t have a horse. Or riding boots. Or chaps. So no nursing home for me, just one long walk to the end of my time on this planet. I don’t know exactly what has led me down this path, but I suspect it’s a throwback to my Pop’s last years when Alzheimer’s had robbed him of his mind, his loved ones and his identity. Maybe it was my wife’s stories of her visit to her grandmother’s nursing home during our recent holiday – the stark, sanitised, loneliness of it all. Possibly it could be my mid-life crisis that keeps getting pushed back as life expectancies lengthen – it seems that every birthday for the past 10 years has marked the halfway mark of an ever increasing average lifespan. Could it be that I went to my first 50th on the weekend for one of my friends, rather than as a son, a nephew or a work colleague? There is a chance it flows from my near phobia-like fear of saying goodbyes. Whatever the reason, I’ve picked the

location. The Central Australian desert. A place as deep in spirituality as it is shallow in sentimentality. A desert is serene in its simplicity and breathtaking in its insistence on honesty – there is no place to hide. Prevaricate and perish. Each morning it provides a sandy tabula rasa for another 24 hours where you must

“Sand between my toes. Fresh air in my lungs. Acceptance in my heart” pick yourself up and start again. A desert strips civilisation of its pretence; there’s no place for your designer clothes, complicated coffee orders and fanciful day dreams. You are what you are – either a predator or the preyed upon, a survivor or a statistic, one with knowledge or one without it. Maybe Nadine Gordimer captured it best when she said, “A desert is a place without expectation”. That’s the place I want to be in my dying days. No carpet. No antiseptic. No communal meals. Sand between my toes. Fresh air in my lungs. Acceptance in my heart. No goodbyes.

Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

Your money questions answered

The recent Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival not only featured the latest catwalk trends, it also showcased a technology first in Australia with Snapchat Spectacles. Not yet available to purchase from stores in Australia (although they can be bought online through eBay ), the stylish glasses were used at the festival to allow fashion followers who missed out on tickets to watch snippets of the show live on Snapchat. The Spectacles film or photograph from the wearer’s perspective and then transfer the images via bluetooth to a Snapchat account to share with followers. Festival director Jacinta Richmond also used the Spectacles to give viewers eyes on back of house, front of house and mingling with guests. “We are so excited to bring this fun technology to Australia and to fashion, while tapping into the Snapchat youth market,” she says.

CAN I FLY THERE? “Can I fly there?” It’s a question that puzzles a lot of novice drone pilots and failure to know the answer could be a costly mistake. A new smartphone app, aptly called Can I Fly There? has been released to make flying drones safer and clearly shows crucial drone no-fly zones and fly-with-caution zones. The app displays no-fly zones around major airports, the flight paths of smaller airports and helicopter landing areas as well as restricted and military airspace where drones must not be flown at all. It is the first time an official app has been released in Australia to help drone flyers stay safe and abide by the safety regulations and has been brought to fruition by CASA and specialist drone software company Drone Complier. Can I Fly There? is available for Android through Google Play and iOS in the Apple Store.

More information about Snapchat Spectacles is available at spectacles.com.

I have some money to invest but as the markets are quite high at the moment, should I wait for them to ease and invest later? (T&J 4567) Stock markets around the world have been quite strong of late and we are seeing the US markets constantly reaching new highs. Trying to time markets is inherently difficult as there are many factors at play that cause stock markets to rise and fall. Dollar Cost Averaging is a technique where you invest on a regular basis and over time this would have the potential to reduce the average price of the units or shares you purchase. For practicality this method is best utilised in managed funds. As the price rises you buy less units, as it is more expensive, and as the price falls you buy more units as they become cheaper. Committing to a regular investment strategy helps to smooth out volatility and avoids the issue of timing markets, which is a good thing, as it can tend to be driven by less rational elements a lot of the time. If your investment is more of a lump sum and ‘one-off’ in nature, you can still look at the use of dollar cost averaging. Break up your larger amount into equal instalments over the next 6 months for example. You could look at having a portion invested now and then progressively invested so that you are fully in line with your risk profile at the end of 6 months. At the end of the day, markets are frequently going to be at high points and waiting for corrections may mean lost earnings in the meantime. Market volatility occurs quite regularly to varying degrees so rather than time your entry this strategy can take the stress and worry out of the equation. I am looking to invest funds for the longer term and was wondering if you could explain the difference between active and passive investing? (E&L 4558)

A great question and quite topical at the moment. Essentially, an active fund manager looks to buy and sell shares in an effort to maximise returns for investors. The performance of active managers is often measured against a benchmark index, that they try to outperform by a given margin. Active managers will typically spend a great amount of time and effort researching companies and their ability to add value through stock selection is the cornerstone of active investing. A passive investment manager will buy a basket of stocks and hold them, riding the ups and downs of the market. The stocks will typically replicate a benchmark index, such as the S&P/ ASX 200 Index of Australian shares. These are commonly known as ‘index funds’. Because no attempt is made to beat a benchmark through research or stock selection, management fees on passive products are typically much lower than for actively managed funds. There are pros and cons for both. Passive will be low cost but generally won’t provide out performance and fund managers don’t have the opportunity to invest in stocks that are expected to outperform. An active manager will be more expensive but does have the potential to outperform an index and make specific stock selections. This also brings with it the potential to underperform so careful research of active managers is warranted. We tend to prefer an active approach as we believe the higher quality managers are rewarded for their efforts over time. Building a portfolio tailored for your underlying risk profile and one that is targeting your overall goals and objectives should be your ultimate aim. Seeking out professional advice would be a good first step.

DESTINATIONS TO CURE WANDERLUST IN 2018 Need an escape that reignites your sense of wander in the world? Here are six of the best destinations our planet has to offer. WORDS: By Sarah Marshall, AAP. 1. BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

2. PICOS DE EUROPA, SPAIN

Best for: Urban discovery Why: Once considered territory only for backpackers and career-break travellers, South America is now a feasible option for a shorter holiday. Along with sampling some of the country’s finest steaks and malbecs at parrillas such as Don Julio (go to parrilladonjulio.com), admire the ornate beauty of the Teatro Colón opera house (teatrocolon.org.ar/en) or learn about the history of tango at the Carlos Gardel House Museum (museo-casa-carlos-gardel. business.site).

Best for: Hiking Why: One hundred years ago, this stretch of peaks linking Cantabria, Asturias and Castilla y León in Spain was designated the first national park of Europe. It’s now regarded as one of the most scenic wilderness areas in the country. Limestone mountains, cloud-reaching forests and tumbling glaciers make up the terrain, which is ideal for easy, multi-day hikes. Aside from the landscapes, there’s also the possibility of seeing golden eagles, wild horses and (if you’re really lucky) the Cantabrian brown bear.

Best for: Wildlife Why: Although it’s frequently overshadowed by neighbouring safari giants Zambia and Tanzania, this small, friendly and politically stable country is gearing up to be a world-class wildlife destination. Last year, the world’s biggest ever translocation of elephants took place, with the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve successfully restocked, and next year there are plans to reintroduce lions into Liwonde National Park with the help of Leonardo DiCaprio’s charitable foundation. But even without the big cats, Liwonde is a natural treasure. From a boat safari watch elephants swim across the park’s Shire River, and fall asleep listening to hippos snuffling in the undergrowth.

4. LIVERPOOL, UK Best for: Culture Why: With 12 months of cultural events planned for this dockside city, there’s good reason to visit year round. One of the biggest talking points is the impending arrival of the Terracotta Army from Xi’an. For more than 2000 years, these statues guarded the tomb of China’s first emperor and from February 9 until October 28 they’ll form part of a major exhibition at the World Museum (liverpoolmuseums.org. uk/wml/) recounting one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries. Other highlights in the arts calendar include a return visit from French puppeteers Royal De Luxe as part of the

Best for: Adventure Why: Iceland’s popularity grows every year and now second-timers are venturing beyond Reykjavik and heading north for similarly striking waterfalls, geothermal pools and lava caves – only without the crowds. Iceland’s second city Akureyri is the gateway to the Arctic north where highlights include Europe’s most powerful waterfall Dettifoss, lava formation Dimmuborgir and Myvatn Nature Baths, which is a far less touristy alternative to the Blue Lagoon.

6. NASHVILLE, USA Best for: Foodies Why: Whether you’re a country music fan or not, Tennessee’s capital ripples with intrigue. Sure, cowboy boots still tap to irresistible riffs in crowded bars, but the appeal of the city, renamed ‘Nowville’ by American GQ, is so much broader. A dynamic food scene runs from gritty Southern fare to classy gourmet creations, and the reinvigorated neighbourhoods of 12 South and East Nashville are shaping up to be hipster magnets.

123 TRAVEL

This boutique hotel on 7th Avenue has got the proximity you need, but enough distance that your eyes can catch a break from the kaleidoscopic billboards in the functional but stylish rooms. Aside from the plump and buttery tear and share garlic bread in the in-house restaurant Legasea (mains from $US21), it’s the view of the Empire State Building from the rooftop terrace at Moxy’s bar that wows. Rooms are from $US139.

4. EXPLORE UNDER THE SEA AT ENCOUNTER: OCEAN ODYSSEY Moving from room to room at this interactive exhibition, prepare to be bombarded by shoals of digital fish that flutter and dart, activated by your footsteps. Columns of faux coral turn luminous at your touch, while digital sea lions flip and spin. And a 3D whale may just make you scream.

SMALL SHIPS OFFER BIG ADVENTURES It’s the best of two worlds when you can make your choices while having every detail covered. An APT small ship expedition cruise has access to some of the world’s most pristine and untouched ports. The fleet of small ships offers the perfect balance between the comfort of a large ocean liner and the boutique advantages of a smaller vessel that can access smaller ports. Step ashore into the centre of town and explore. Each small ship cruise has an indulgent all-inclusive holiday lifestyle with beverages, spacious suites, tailor-made shore excursions and a dedicated expedition team. Fewer guests are on board each voyage, which means no precious holiday time is lost queuing to disembark and each excursion is an authentic experience. From the tropical seascapes of south-east Asia to the fjords of northern Europe and Iceland, an APT small ship is a big adventure.

Best beauty looks at the SAG Awards There were some e gorgeous hair and makeup looks at th the Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA on January 21. Here ere are three of the bes best:

Pumped up neutrals: Alison Brie’s makeup artist tist used the bronze shade from Elizabeth Arden’s Not So Nude Eye Shadow Trio ($28 from David Jones) and Elizabeth Arden Lipstick in Scarlett, $29.40 from Myer.

2018’s BIGGEST HAIR TREND Hair stylists are predicting the biggest hair trend for 2018 will be the curly shag. Think Jennifer Beals in Flashdance and Milla Jovovich (pictured), who is a long-time fan of the look. The modern version is a touch more chic, with tousled curls and a focus on colour. The key to this style is the heavy fringe and a length somewhere between a long bob and shoulder-length hair. If you have naturally curly hair, break out the curl-enhancing products and go for it.

classic red

Standout: Madeline Brewerr looked amazing with her vibrant orange-red lips and swept back hair accented with th a Jennifer Behr Pearl Hair Pin. That fantastic lipstick shade is Georgio Armanii Lip Maestro in 300 Coral, $56 6 from Myer.

Peachy keen: Margot Robbie’s textured bob was created ed with Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse. Her subtly sparkling lids were created by Make Up For Ever Silver Glitter ($15 from Sephora) over Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Flesh ($52 from Myer). On her lips – Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Rouge Angelique, $53 from Myer.

LAST CHANCE TO SEE THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE FOR THE LOVE OF TAY TAY

It’s not often that tattooed folk/pop artists harbour a fondness for the music of American pop stars like Taylor Swift. Or at least if they do, they’re not making public announcements about it. But Brisbane artist Shanon Watkins is happily doing both. His new single Secret Love of Tay Tay is an upbeat tribute to this formerly undisclosed appreciation for the pop star. “I was listening to a Taylor Swift song on the radio and was singing along not fully conscious that I was actually enjoying it. “At first I was embarrassed but now I’m not afraid to admit that I like some of her songs.” His own music is a world away from hers, however, with references to the likes of John Butler, Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran. Shanon Watkins is at the Solbar in Maroochydore on February 2 from 6pm in the lounge bar. Entry is free.

LUNCH SPECIAL*

COCONUT CRUMBED SQUID with Preserved Lemon,

A true family musical comedy awaits those who get on board with The Pirates of Penzance, with clashing swords and barbs being traded in this modern take by Promac Productions. The Pirates are on their 21st anniversary (and final) tour and this fast-paced production will be sure to delight with its full set and costumes – and a cast of only six.

The stellar cast includes musical theatre star Philip Gould as the swashbuckling ‘Pirate King’, veteran comic baritone Brian Hannan as the major general and the police sergeant, international soprano Alison Jones as Mabel, Opera Australia mezzo soprano Caroline Vercoe as Ruth, Chris McKenna as Frederic and Dominic Woodhead as the musical director on piano. So, say farewell to The Pirates as they sail off into the sunset, but not before providing the whole family with a truly great time in the theatre. The Events Centre Caloundra, February 17 at 7.30pm and February 18 at 2pm. Tickets for a meal and show package are $55 adults, $35 concession and $30 child and are available from theeventscentre.com.au.

NEARLY NEIL SHINES LIKE A DIAMOND With Neil Diamond cancelling his visit to the Sunshine Coast as part of his international tour, fans will have another opportunity to catch some of his most iconic songs live when Canadian singer Bobby Bruce brings his Nearly Neil tour to Caloundra. Mr Bruce has packed houses throughout America, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Asia with his passionate and

vocally brilliant salute to the music legend. Audiences will love the way Mr Bruce glides through a powerful package of hits, from Cracklin’ Rosie and Kentucky Woman to Cherry Cherry and Sweet Caroline. The show will be at The Events Centre, Caloundra on February 21 at 11am with complimentary morning tea from 10am. Tickets are $19 and are available from theveentscentre.com.au.

READER’S CORNER Origin Author: Dan Brown Publisher: Harper Collins RRP: $39.99 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane A shiver of anticipation runs down my spine every time I hear Dan Brown has released a new novel. There is an instant drive for me to get a copy in my hot little hands to see what kind of genius he has come up with this time and the author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons and Inferno, does not disappoint with his latest offering – Origin. Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon returns and is drawn into another whirlwind thriller, this time centred on an astonishing scientific breakthrough that threatens to challenge the fundamentals of human existence. It doesn’t get more cliché than that, but there is no over-the-top bravado among these pages, just Brown’s iconic style of writing, which seamlessly blends historical fact with a range of modern day concepts and viewpoints, sprinkled with pageturning anticipation that means once you finish the first page, you will be hooked throughout Langdon’s journey until the stunning conclusion.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

Don’t limit yourself Leo! This week your creativity and originality are firing, as you form a new partnership or pursue a joint project. When it comes to your job, you may feel as if you’re going backwards so your best to work smarter rather than harder.

Uranus and the Aquarian sun, Mercury and Venus are shaking up your daily routine. It’s time to learn new techniques, revamp your office or even change your job. You possess many Virgo talents but they won’t truly blossom until you nurture them.

Creative partnerships are favoured on Wednesday, when you spark ideas off each other and pool your talents to create something really unique. When it comes to close relationships, stop talking long enough to let others have their say.

You’re feeling optimistic about the future as Jupiter (planet of prosperity and positivity) journeys through Scorpio. Wednesday is wonderful for fun, friendship and novel expressions of affection. But avoid getting carried away on the weekend.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

With the sun, Mercury and Venus all visiting your communication zone you’ll feel like conversing, studying and/or travelling. If you’ve been waiting to get something off your chest, now’s the time to spill the beans and express yourself.

This week the focus is on business and/or financial matters. Capricorns are usually patient and persistent but, when it comes to a frustrating situation, you could find yourself ready to throw in the towel. Saturn and Pluto push you to keep at it.

Wednesday favours stimulating friendships and falling love! With the sun, Mercury and Venus all visiting your sign, you’ll feel curious, and eager to explore radical new ideas. You’re also keen to show others how innovative and interesting you are.

With plenty of planets in your ‘helping others’ zone, concentrate on the needs of those around you. You’ll also gain good fortune if you’re involved with projects from behind-the-scenes. On the weekend, you’ll be at your quintessential Piscean best.

BEACHFRONT MARKETS LEAD PRICE RISE

HARMONY FAST-TRACKS LAND RELEASE

S

outh-east Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world-class beaches are driving median price growth for our coastal housing markets, with Noosa reigning supreme with 9.6 per cent annual growth, followed by the Gold Coast with 7.3 per cent annual growth and the Sunshine Coast Local Government Area (LGA) with 6.8 per cent annual growth. REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says the growth surge was helped along by a boost in tourism numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tourism is one of the largest contributors to Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gross state product (GSP), with almost eight per cent of GSP coming from tourism,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is roughly $25 billion in the year to June 2016, which means when that sector grows, it offers employment opportunities and this attracts workers who need somewhere to live.â&#x20AC;? The strong performance of the south-east cornerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coastal markets has helped drive Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth over the past 12 months, with more than 58,000 houses sold and an annual median price growth of 2.4 per cent. The Sunshine Coast Statistical Division incorporates Noosa and the Sunshine Coast LGA. These two property markets

have powered ahead through the past 12 months. The Sunshine Coast has grown 6.8 per cent to $550,000 and Noosa has grown a whopping 9.6 per cent to an annual median house price of $655,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These markets are clearly offering buyers exactly what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for and the REIQâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prediction is that when the Bruce Highway is improved to the point where commuting to Brisbane becomes more reasonable, we will see

Antonia Mercorella demand balloon,â&#x20AC;? Ms Mercorella says. The unit market has also been reasonably positive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the median prices has risen 3.7 per cent on the Sunshine Coast and 0.4 per cent in Noosa in the past 12 months.

Palmviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest masterplanned community, Harmony by AVID Property Group, has fast-tracked the release of its latest land lots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fourth release in less than 12 months. AVID Property Group Queensland general manager Bruce Harper says an additional 68 land lots have been released to meet demand since the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first release in February 2017. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Residential property demand is surging in the region and as prices continue to rise, buyers are increasingly looking for affordable land options in desirable locations,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This latest release sits within our Prosperity neighbourhood. With blocks starting from $220,600 and ranging from 250 to 450 square metres, Harmony is appealing to a wide range of single buyers and families and enabling the community to grow at a rapid pace.â&#x20AC;?

ADRIAN RAMSAY DESIGN HOUSE WINS HOUZZ AWARD FOR THE FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW

With a pool of 40 million monthly users, there is no shortage of traffic through the Houzz website, and with only three per cent of users on the platform winning awards, the fact that Buderim-based designer Adrian Ramsay has won a Houzz award for the fourth year in a row is no mean feat.

Each year, Houzz recognises the top professionals behind the most popular and top-rated home renovating companies and home designers with its Best of Houzz and on January 19, Adrian Ramsay Design House won the 2018 Award for Customer Service. Customer service honours are based on several factors, including the number and the quality of recent client reviews. “The joy is in designing for somebody as opposed to just designing for my own self-expression,” Mr Ramsay says. “It is a privilege to be asked to design someone’s home, so I make it my responsibility to meet their needs and turn those needs into so much more, I turn them into magic.”

CONSTRUCTION COMMENCES AT LOCALE Construction has begun on 40 new townhouses in Maroochydore after Mayor Mark Jamieson joined builder RCQ Construction and developer Reed Property Group to officially turn the sod at the Locale development site. RCQ Construction general manager Gavin Wuiske says he is thrilled to be bringing the project out of the ground after months of careful planning and a strong sales response from the market. “We anticipate construction of the town homes will take just under a year, with the project scheduled for completion in the last quarter of 2018,” Mr Wuiske says. “Having built numerous residential developments on the Sunshine Coast and beyond in our three decades of operation, we’re confident of delivering high-quality homes in a great location, especially as the Maroochydore CBD is coming to life.” Cr Jamieson says the Sunshine Coast is in the midst of an economic boom and with Maroochydore set to become the business and employment hub of the region, there is undoubtedly demand for more affordable housing nearby. “Installation of the underground infrastructure at the CBD site is now 95 per cent complete so 2018 will certainly see increased activity on site,” he says. “As the number of employees in the CBD continues

RPG director Richard Ash, Mayor Mark Jamieson and RCQ Construction general manager Gavin Wuiske to escalate, access to affordable housing in the area will be essential and projects like Locale will go some way to meet this demand, helping us build a sustainable and thriving business centre. “Locale residents aren’t the only ones to benefit from the development, with RCQ Construction confirming that more than 90 tradespeople are expected to be employed throughout the construction period, injecting an estimated $25 million into the local economy.” Reed Property Group sales executive Cathie Price says interest in the townhouses has been overwhelming, with 77 per cent already sold prior to construction commencing.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Did all of you guys enjoy the hottest 100? There were some groovy songs in the mix. I was recently searching Spotify and found the top 1000 fart sounds. Yes, someone actually produced 1000 fart tracks. Why? One hour of toilet pleasure. I got three minutes into it and had to pull the plug. Now that’s some trivia for ya! Okay, for those not listening to Spotify, there are some waves around. There will be some strong SE winds, so all roads will lead to Noosa. Here’s a question: do you ever think about your first surfboard? I am on a mission to have a replica made of my Michael Peterson, with the same spray and style. I lost it in 1989 when I forgot to tie it to the roof of the car! Enjoy your weekend.

a beautiful place to live. Many of our first time visitors are quite surprised to hear that we have over 25 hectares of parkland within our Sunshine Cove community. Of course our larger parks like Wises, are easy to spot but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not until you take a wander along the streets that you can appreciate just how well our green spaces integrate our residential precincts into the larger parks and reserves. This weekend come take a look for yourself.
