FROM THE EDITOR

Win

Women’s empowerment group WINDO is launching the Sunshine Coast and Noosa’s first International Women’s Week Festival from March 5 to 11. The program includes a major entertainment event on International Women’s Day, March 8, called Let’s Hear It For The Girls. Held at The J, this event includes Husna Pasha, who has featured on The Project and Compass, former Project Runway judge Sarah Gale as well as live entertainment by local performer Andrea Kirwan (pictured). We have a double pass to give away, valued at $70.

T

he year was 1995 and we were standing in a late 1970s-style apartment overlooking Alexandra Headland. It had a price tag of $180,000, which more than 20 years ago, was considered a risky investment. The interior was typical for that era. There were a lot of brown colours, some shagpile carpet and the must-have popcorn ceiling. If only investors had a crystal ball. Today, those three-bedroom units in the same category, are selling for around $400,000. Not a bad return on investment. Modern investors are a little different to the mums and dads of yesteryear. These days, there is endless research conducted, statistics galore and plenty of property gurus willing to share their opinion on the state of the market. This week, journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane takes an in-depth look at the property market – where we have come from and where we are headed. According to nationally-recognised demographer Mark McCrindle, the Sunshine Coast will be reinvigorated by infill development. He says we are set to compete with bigger cities on the liveability scale. Exciting times ahead, it seems. In this edition, we also focus on developer projects and take a look at the four biggest retail developments taking place across the Coast. Plus, we share the latest residential developments in My Property Preview. Enjoy!

QUICK CHAT

ECO WARRIOR Where do you live? On the picturesque Blackall Range at Obi Obi. Having lived in Point Arkwright and Coolum for more than 30 years, the shift a couple of years ago has given us the opportunity to experience our love of both the ocean and the hinterland. First job? At 14, I worked Thursday nights and Saturday mornings at the Coles variety store in Ayr, North Queensland. That first pay packet of a crisp $20 note and a few coins was a defining moment. And the beginning of my lay-bys. What are you currently working on? The need for advocacy for environmental protections, respect for community and good planning continues unabated, so there are a number of projects on the go.

advocate

Narelle McCarthy BIO

Narelle McCarthy, from the Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC), has been passionate about nature from a young age. At SCEC – which has been the peak environmental advocacy organisation for the region since 1980 – Ms McCarthy works in liaison and advocacy and works to protect the natural values of the region while building on SCEC’s impressive 40-year conservation legacy.

IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON

Your family includes‌ A wonderful partner, a very special dog and chickens with loads of character but not many eggs. First car? A Ford Laser that I paid too much for then had to keep paying off on hospitality wages after it was written off by a friend in an accident.

If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? The unsustainable rate of population growth. Our natural assets and systems, open space, liveability values and fundamental infrastructure are being pushed beyond tipping points with no reprieve in sight due to a policy vacuum to stabilise Australia’s population to more sustainable levels. Best day in your life? I’m grateful for every day and for the experiences they bring, however, diving in Boult Reef Lagoon was a particularly exceptional day. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? During a sailing trip, I had a deep and clear realisation that I needed to turn my passion for the environment into being effective in its protection. This led to formal studies and into environmental advocacy.

“I needed to turn my passion for the environment into being effective in its protection�

Favourite book? My reading list comprises reports and scientific and environment literature. On Our Watch: The Race the Save Australia’s Environment by Nicola Markus had a huge impact on me. Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree holds fond memories. What are you reading now? Game of Mates: How Favours Bleed the Nation by Dr Cameron Murray and Dr Paul Frijters. Favourite song? My top three would have to include The Ship Song by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Ballroom Blitz by The Sweet and Nessun Dorma. Best advice you’ve been given? Not to mix the malt and the grape is a good one! What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Point Arkwright will always be a special place for me, as are Gheerulla Falls and the Mapleton National Park.

Your greatest regret? Not playing a musical instrument. I really admire musicians and the talent they have to create and share music.

What achievement are you most proud of? Life itself is an achievement and there is much to be thankful for. However, the addition of 744 hectares of high conservation forest known as the Mooloolah Logging Area to the Mooloolah River National Park ranks right up there. This was a significant outcome from a concerted community effort relating to the Caloundra Road to Sunshine Motorway Upgrade project now underway. You are happiest when? Diving, sailing and chilling in the hills. And being among inspirational people standing up for the environment. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? Be yourself and always be true to yourself. Tea or coffee? Coffee – a flat white or a good instant. NRL or AFL? NRL.

FEATURE STORY

THE FUTURE SUNSHINE COAST

The secret is well and truly out – the Sunshine Coast is an amazing place to live. But how will our region fare as developments spring out of the ground and new residents flock here from around the world? My Weekly Preview asks the experts. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“More gen X families and gen Y young adults are moving here in search of a better work/ life balance”

Image: Greg Gardner

T

he property market on the Sunshine Coast is enjoying one of its most robust periods in recent times, with high demand driven by the many large projects in the region working wonders on the property prices people can achieve. The completion of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, University of the Sunshine Coast expansion, the creation of the Maroochydore CBD and future expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport has renewed developer confidence – we’ve seen an abundance of new apartments and land at masterplanned communities such as Aura in Caloundra, Bokarina Beach in Kawana and Harmony at Palmview. With a population set to increase to 550,000 by 2040, ask any local what they envisage for the future of the Sunshine Coast, and quite often you will get the response, “I don’t want it to be like the Gold Coast”. But award-winning Australian demographer, data scientist and social commentator Mark McCrindle has news for you – we are heading in that direction, just not yet on that scale. Mr McCrindle will visit The Shed in Palmview on February 23 to present findings from the 2017 Census and analyse some of the emerging trends for our region, and he says the Sunshine Coast remains one of the country’s fastest growing areas. “Unlike other states, where the populations are heavily concentrated in capital cities, Queensland is the polar opposite of that, with a decentralised population that sees more than 50 per cent living outside of the capital of Brisbane,” he

14 My Weekly Preview | February 23, 2018

says. “With that happening, you are not only going to see continued population and property sprawl, but there will also be densification and urbanisation and there will be a growth in the number of apartments, units and townhouses you will see on the Sunshine Coast.” While the region has been a retirement destination in the past, Mr McCrindle says change is afoot due to the attractive lifestyle offered here, and the increasing ability for technology to allow people to work in any location – more gen X families and gen Y young adults are moving here in search of a better work/life balance.

meet the needs of this next generation, and it’s not just young people seeking this out. “These diverse communities are also attractive to downsizing baby boomers who want to be closer to the action than what their traditional suburban homes have allowed. These new, thriving and activated communities can meet the needs of everyone.” These are the kinds of communities being planned by Stockland at Aura and Bokarina Beach and by AVID Property Group at Harmony, with tens of thousands of new residents set to move in to these greenfield sites in the next decade.

“People are looking for that salt and pepper development that is mixeduse, where they can live, work and play. The city planning mindset has shifted to meet that modern need” Mark McCrindle

“[People] no longer seek out communities that are meeting single needs, like the residential community, or the work hub, or the business park. People are looking for that salt and pepper development that is mixed-use, where they can live, work and play,” he says. “People want to connect more locally, and the whole city planning mindset has shifted to meet that modern need. The walkable community is the one that will

Mr McCrindle says infill development, such as the Maroochydore CBD, will reinvigorate and future-proof the region. “There is a fair bit of infill going on now and this will help the region to remain relevant and not stuck in the rut of suburbs and distant locales we have created in the past. Infill development allows for renewal and regeneration and when these new developments are mixed in with more

established ones, it provides great opportunities to retrofit established communities to meet the new needs of today,” he says. “This is what has activated a lot of the other city areas across Australia, where they have been able to take existing locations and some of the infrastructure and with population density, been able to reinvest and rebuild some of those areas to make them a bit more of this 21st century vision.” He adds that the Sunshine Coast can well and truly compete with bigger cities on the liveability scale. “When we look at liveability and what makes an area desirable, one of the things is affordability, the next is population growth and an area thriving in terms of infrastructure investment and built amenity. In a more Australian context, they look for natural amenity, which is where the Sunshine Coast offers more than any other area,” he says. “While places like Melbourne continually rank on a global scale, not everyone wants to live in a global city with a five-million population. Regional cities have come into their own in the last decade or two and as buyers, what we look for has changed. With a boost in gig-industries and entrepreneurial start-ups, more people can choose lifestyle over location. It’s given places like the Sunshine Coast a massive leg-up on some of the cities that used to dominate in that regard.” Harcourts Caloundra’s Luke Carter says when you look at cities like Miami, Singapore, Hong Kong and even Melbourne and Sydney, comparable properties are five myweeklypreview.com.au

FEATURE STORY to seven times the price of Sunshine Coast properties, but they are not five times better. “The Sunshine Coast has pockets that are on par with some of the best locations in the world and it seems almost unreasonable that our property prices are a fraction comparably,” he says. “The Sunshine Coast is lucky to have an area like the Gold Coast nearby, to be able to learn from their mistakes. We have to have higher density living on the Coast, but I am confident we will do it right and there are some great things coming for the future. If managed correctly, we will become one of the best and most desirable regions in the country.” For those looking for vacant land outside masterplanned communities, buyers can get the feeling they are rarer than hen’s teeth, and Mr McCrindle says as more developers land bank to get bigger sites together for large communities, industrial parks or retirement villages, finding an acreage owner preparing to subdivide into individual lots is harder than it used to be. In fact, the latest data from the Housing Industry Australia CoreLogic Residential Land Report shows the Sunshine Coast has the most expensive vacant residential land in regional Australia, at $718 per square metre. This sits just below Melbourne, with land costing $737 per square metre. Mr McCrindle says this might not have too much of an impact on young buyers, with increasing numbers giving up on the house and land package for their first home. “Many are starting life and families in urban spaces, which was not really considered an option a decade or two ago. Even outside of capital cities, people have responded to urbanised living,” he says. The effects of this social trend has been seen at the coalface, with experienced RGD group sales and marketing manager Gail Hunter seeing the most demand for onebedroom apartments across all of the apartment buildings released by RGD within the Sunshine Coast health precinct. The Salt, North Shore and Waterline apartment buildings released to market in 2017 have sold out while the one-bedroom apartments at Aquarius have already been

myweeklypreview.com.au

snapped up and Ms Hunter anticipates the next release, which will come onto the market next month, will also be popular. Investors of apartments in these waterfront complexes enjoy a one per cent vacancy rate. “We have seen a huge shift from mainly interstate investors to more owner-occupiers, local investors and first homebuyers. Particularly people working in the hospital have been buying one-bedroom apartments as they don’t necessarily want to get a flatmate in and with technology being what it is, they don’t need a second bedroom to use as an office,” she says. “These are getting people into the market at an affordable price. “They are also popular with the older generation who have the comfort of being closer to medical facilities, and the dual-key type properties allow them to buy a bigger three-bedroom apartment and have an income without interfering with their privacy.” Ms Hunter says the region’s gamechanger projects are “finally putting the Sunshine Coast on the map”. The developments around the health precinct have embodied the ‘walkable city’ model Mr McCrindle says are the way of the future, offering residents easy access to parks, shops, restaurants and entertainment. “You can see the demand, see that there are more jobs and we’re certainly still on the way up in the property cycle,” she says. “It is a cycle, but buy wisely and research to ensure there will be jobs where you buy. If there are jobs, you will be able to sell your property.” With the Commonwealth Games on the horizon, Mr McCrindle predicts there will be a flurry of activity in the property market. “Tourism does have an impact on property – people holiday in an area and start to get inspired about ownership. When tourism numbers increase, you do see some of that transfer into property purchasing, but it is a value-add more than a driver,” he says. Mr McCrindle says Australians are more transient than ever, with the average tenure in a purchased property now just seven years, making the transition to the Sunshine Coast a realistic option for many.

AFFORDABILITY CRISIS: FACT OR FICTION? As Sydney and Melbourne property markets skyrocket, the term ‘affordability crisis’ has been thrown around a lot in the past 18 months, but some are also using it to describe the Sunshine Coast. Mark McCrindle says while local property prices remain considerably lower than those in southern states, the Coast sits at number nine of the top 10 areas that have had the highest property price rises in the country. “The price rises seen on the Coast have been quite similar in terms of the multiple increases seen over the last decade in the major capital cities,” he says. “While the prices may sit lower, the proportion of the increase has been very similar [to Sydney and Melbourne]. It is a reality that when you have a median house price in an area like the Sunshine Coast that is lower than the capital cities, it can work against local buyers as

investors from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane see it as affordable buy up, adding to demand and raising those prices. “The upside is that the Coast is so well regarded that a lot of property investment dollars are going there but the downside is managing the affordability. You want to be able to retain people in the area in which they have grown up and keep that legacy, connection and history by providing affordable options.” Mr McCrindle says these affordable options come not just in the form of detached homes and unit developments, but also in infill densified hubs in lower-cost areas that are not necessarily on the water’s edge. “There are some great solutions on the Sunshine Coast,” he says. “While it’s less affordable than it perhaps was, it is not at crisis levels.”

SAMUEL JOHNSON TO SPEAK AT WOMEN’S DAY EVENT International Women’s Day is recognised globally on March 8, but the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network is preparing to hold its annual event earlier to extend the positivity, passion and inspiration over several days. Renowned actor, 2018 Victorian Australian of the Year and Love Your Sister supporter Samuel Johnson will be the guest speaker at the event on March 6 at 6.30am at The Events Centre, Caloundra. Mr Johnson, who is known for his roles in The Secret Life of Us, Rush, Underbelly II and his Gold Logie-winning role as Molly Meldrum, received nation-wide acknowledgement for his dedication to raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. To book tickets, visit scbwn.org.au.

NEW OCEAN STREET VENUE WILL ADD TO THE VIBE A new building on Maroochydore’s bustling hospitality hub – Ocean Street – will take things to a whole new level. Construction has begun at 8 Maroochydore Road by Bryant Property Group to create a sevenstorey building that will host a rooftop bar with 360-degree views and popular restaurant The Piano Bar will relocate to the sixth floor. Bryant Property Group director Brendan Bryant says there will be five levels of office space in the new building, with opportunities for retail or a restaurant/bar on the ground floor. Guzman y Gomez has snapped up space on the ground floor for a drive-through Mexican restaurant alongside a drivethrough Gloria Jean’s. The building is expected to be completed in October and the vacant Piano Bar site will be filled by a licensed European deli.

FASHION INSPO APLENTY

Nationwide entries are now being sought for the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2018 – one of the most prestigious regional art prizes in Australia. The competition offers a major cash prize of $25,000 sponsored by Sunshine Coast Council. Arts Portfolio councillor Rick Baberowski says the Art Prize is the flagship contemporary art award for our region. The 2018 judge is University of Queensland Art Museum director Dr Campbell Gray. Finalists will be announced in May and showcased in an exhibition at the Caloundra Regional Gallery from August 16 to October 14.

The team at House of George have gone all out to create some amazing looks to complement local boutiques and designers’ styles and are preparing to showcase them all on the catwalk with looks that are hot for spring and summer 2018. Fashionistas will also be able to participate in raffles and auctions at the event, with fantastic prizes up for grabs and all profits going to Sunny Kids. The Fashion Show is on February 24 at 6pm at the House of George Salon, 12 Amaroo Street, Maroochydore. Tickets are $47 and available from eventbrite. com.au.

The Noosa Festival of Surfing is on its way and is championing a strong sustainability message. The festival organisers have made numerous steps over the years to create a more sustainable event, and in 2018 not only will the event be single-use plastic water bottle-free, it will also be the base for the second annual Sustainability Day on March 16. After-school activities will include an NCBA Plastic Waste Kids’ Art Workshop, and Ocean Crusaders will host a Paddle Against Plastic, taking to the water of Noosa River for a waste collection and analysis, an essential part of the war on waste to assess and address the sources of trash in our waterways.

COAST FIREFIGHTER RECEIVES MEDAL FOR VALOUR Senior firefighter Craig Hogarth has been awarded the prestigious Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner’s Medal for Valour for rescuing two unconscious people from a burning building in Caloundra last August. Fire and Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford says Mr Hogarth performed “an act of exceptional bravery in hazardous circumstances where there has been a clear and significant risk to life”. Mr Hogarth found the KIG Heights units in Queen Street engulfed in flames up to the third storey of the seven-storey building. Lying on his stomach with his feet holding open the door, Mr Hogarth reached through the thick smoke and was able to grab the hands of a woman and man and pull them to safety.

MY OPINION

ALL EYES ON BRAD & JEN

TIME IS THE BEST GIFT OF ALL

Bulletproof backpacks, Bust Dust and a possible reunion for Brad and Jen – it’s all up for discussion in Sami Muirhead’s column this week.

Rebecca Grisman says volunteering at her child’s school has many rewards, least of all the feeling of satisfaction that accompanies good teamwork.

I

f you are like me and don’t get out often, then consider this a little catch-up lesson in pop culture and politics, because some crazy stuff is going down you may have missed. Bulletproof backpacks are soaring in sales in the United State of America. I just cannot fathom that whole concept of sending your child to school with a bulletproof bag. Surely there are better solutions, like just banning guns? From there, let’s jump to a wildly different topic – boobs (because that’s how women talk in real life, we scat from serious to flippant topics and back again). There is a new spray for squirting under your breasts to stop them from sweating. Now, if any blokes are reading this please just stop right now, as we like to keep some things private. A very clever woman has invented Bust Dust, which promises to stop the ouch factor of breastage sweatage. I am not sure they are even real words, but you get my point. Yes. It is a lot to process I know. The inventor is making millions from her Bust Dust. So let’s just move on for the third and last hard-to-get-your-head around topic for today. Jennifer Anniston is supposedly getting divorced from her hubby. The tall, brooding, good looking one. I can never remember his name. Justin someone or other. When I saw this news splattered on the cover of those horrid women’s magazines I just thought they were living up

to their reputation for printing pathological lies. But then when Jen’s publicist commented on the split, I sat up. And paid FULL attention. And your mind has already gone where mine went straight away, hasn’t it? Yep. It would be the reunion of the century! Brad and Jen. Back together again. Brad has been single since busting up with Angelina and going their separate ways to raise their gorgeous gaggle of mini Brangelinas. So. Jen and Brad. Will it be the love story of 2018? Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton married and divorced and married again. Pamela Anderson remarried Rick Salomon and in my research (reading really trashy gossip websites and eating Tim Tams) for this column, I also discovered Judge Judy and Melanie Griffith married the same man twice. The list goes on. Elon Musk, Larry King, Barbara Walters, and Frido Kahlo all remarried their original spouse. I can relate. Relationships are a tricky business aren’t they? Emotions can run from deep love one hour, to wanting to stab your guy with a blunt butter knife the next hour because he thinks folding clean washing in an air-conditioned room while watching his favourite TV show is considered doing his fair share of housework. Not that my husband does that at all (clearly I am lying to protect my marriage here). So watch this space. And I thought the wedding of the year was going to be Harry and Meghan’s.

hile growing up I never thought much about the many mums, dads and grandparents who gave their time to school sports days, excursions, fetes, tuckshop, music and theatre performances, classes and working bees. I have scant but happy memories of their encouraging faces or supervisory advice. Much later, a favourite principal who became a friend and a great mum of three now grown kids both told me I’d ‘get it’ when my turn came; and now I really do. It’s been the most unexpected yet resounding pleasure to discover how much my child’s school community matters to my family and to the people within and surrounding our school. Slowly, I’ve become involved in its committees, projects and vision. I’ve made new friends from shared timetables, concerns, library books and fundraising rosters. I’ve also noticed the kids who need a hand, a hug, a warning look or a nod of acknowledgement. I’ve realised a lot about the mostly unseen and vital work that teachers, administrators and school volunteers do. Some days I’m more satisfied by the feeling of working together that a school creates, than the working day I manage to squeeze in between drop-off and pick-up. It is only topped by my child’s delighted face when I show up for reading time or to help at his disco. I’m especially proud to have connected

the dots between local businesses and several Sunshine Coast schools for a community-funded project that’s building edible gardens for junior primary students that they can tend, cultivate and reap themselves. It creates lots of fun opportunities for kids to learn interactively outdoors. Some are sharing their organic produce through the tuckshop for students to eat freely. The concept is coordinated voluntarily by Treeco Arborists and is based on a successful school garden initiated by parents and volunteers who are long gone now. It’s a legacy of giving back that’s lasted years and will go on shaping little people who appreciate growing healthy food in any sized garden, teamwork, responsibility and sustainability. School volunteers tell me there are countless rewards for giving time and support. They include working with kids and seeing their excited involvement in something, supporting the teachers, feeling a sense of belonging and seeing the results of their efforts come to fruition. I feel I’ve learned more about the importance of education, teamwork and being a lifelong learner in the past few years than from my own 17 years of study or my career with teaching and training institutions. If you have some time, please give it to a school – it will matter and may seed more than you know.

HEALING THROUGH ART

Beauty arose out of hardship for this local artist. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

WE’VE GOT YOUR WINDOWS COVERED

D

asha Riley is a great example of how, with strength and zeal, you can turn even the most difficult situations into a positive. It has been five years since the Woombye mother of two first put pen to paper in an attempt to escape reality through the art of drawing. Realising she had struck creative gold, she continued to develop her skills, progressing into the realm of photography to become a nationally-recognised and awardwinning artist. “I had never been involved in art before,’’ Mrs Riley says. “It (happened) a little before my father passed away. He was living with us and he was suffering from dementia. I had two little kids, my husband and my dad. “It was very tough and I remember one time in particular, when he was admitted to hospital and he discharged himself. That whole afternoon he was missing. “It was difficult. I thought, ‘I have to do something to keep myself sane’. “For the first time in my life I was feeling depressed. I had no energy and I’m normally an upbeat person. I thought, ‘oh okay, I need to make a change’.” That change came in the form of expression through art. “I completed a drawing course and really enjoyed that. Then I won first prize in the Kenilworth Arts Fest and realised it was going really well,’’ Mrs Dash says, her passion for her art shining through her thick German accent. “A friend of mine dragged me along to a photography course and the teacher was so inspiring. Doing research, I realised that different photographers photograph internal worlds more than what they see. “I felt really inspired. It was just so nice. Such a horrible situation turned into something so wonderful.” Mrs Dash’s beautiful work, which is described as photography with a twist of Italian Renaissance and Dutch Golden Age painting, has most recently earned her the

Dasha Riley with her piece Autumn Walk title of Artist in Focus at the 38th annual Immanuel Arts Festival. Launched on February 22 the festival, which is the largest of its kind in the region, is now open to artist entries. Last year the event attracted 2300 people across its three days with almost $30,000 of art sold and organisers have tipped the 2018 festival to be bigger and better. Festival convenor Melissa Evans is encouraging people with all levels of artistic experience to get involved. “We have a lot of people who are first time exhibitors entering the festival,’’ she says. “We want people who have been working hard to have the chance to show off what they have been working on. It’s great exposure to a lot of people and they [pieces] often sell.” My Weekly Preview is a proud supporter of the Immanuel Arts Festival.

The festival will be held at Immanuel Lutheran College from May 24 to 27 and there is more than $5000 in prize money up for grabs across the six adult categories, and the children’s sections. Entries are now open and close on April 6. To find out more visit immanuelartsfestival.com.au.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS Coast shoppers, and visitors to the region, are about to get a lot more choice with the latest round of retail developments. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

here is a flurry of activity across all the region’s major shopping centres as Stockland, Mirvac and Lendlease work to expand and adapt to the changing retail environment, and with a brand-new offering yet to come out of the ground, Coast shoppers will soon be spoilt for choice. Mirvac is expanding Kawana Shoppingworld’s floor space by 6000 square metres to add the Coast’s first Gold Class cinema plus other shops, resulting in more than 200 new retail jobs. Expansion plans are also well underway for the Lendlease-owned Sunshine Plaza, with works to expand the centre from 73,000 square metres to more than 107,000 square metres, set to make it the largest retail centre north of Brisbane. When work is completed, the Plaza will include an enhanced retail mix with the region’s first David Jones department store, a new BIG W, a refurbished Myer, and more than 100 new speciality stores.

Lendlease head of retail Gary Horwitz says in a constantly evolving retail market, being responsive to customer needs is critical to retail shopping precincts thriving in the future. “This high-ropes course brings a future dimension to the shopping experience with an experiential entertainment offer that will attract locals and visiting tourists,” he says. Further south, Stockland has lodged redevelopment plans with the Sunshine

Coast Council, with adjustments to a previous development application that was approved in 2014. The new design aims to provide the Caloundra community with a vibrant entertainment and dining precinct, including a six-screen cinema complex, restaurants and cafes, plus new specialty shops. No time frames have been determined as this application is going through council processes. Stockland also has state and local planning approvals for the proposed $830 million Birtinya Town Centre

masterplan development on Kawana Way. The 18 hectares will include a retail town centre, a new civic plaza, walkable waterfront along Lake Kawana and open green space – all integrated with commercial, health-related research facilities and high-density residential. The first stage of the town centre masterplan is the $87 million Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre. Stockland group executive and CEO of commercial property John Schroder says the new retail town centre will be “consciously different”, designed to embrace its coastal location with architectural finishes, extensive landscaping and natural ventilation, offering a relaxed atmosphere and representing the culture of the Coast. “Stockland Birtinya will be the heart of this vibrant and thriving future town centre featuring a flagship Coles and Aldi supermarket, two mini-majors, an open-air, late-night dining precinct, some 30 specialty retailers and 522 car parking spaces,” he says. “Upon completion of the first stage, this new centre will service a primary trade area of 15,000 people, offering a diverse dining, entertainment and retail offering. It will be a great place for convenience shopping,

LOCAL NEWS having a coffee along the waterfront or meeting friends for dinner and drinks.” Stockland will also develop a service station and two drive-through tenancies adjacent to the shopping centre in the first stage of development. A second stage of the shopping centre will be developed in future stages taking the total retail to 20,000 square metres. Stockland has committed to a five-star Green Star As Built rating for the new Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre, which will have sustainability measures such as solar panels. Sunshine Coast Chamber of Commerce Alliance vice president Linda Delamotte says this new future for retail will attract more people to spend on the Coast. “Companies the size of these organisations simply do not invest in a region without good reason,” she says. “They have done their due diligence and understand the growth we are expecting here over the coming years and are expanding and investing in order to meet that demand. “Savvy retailers can really make their mark on the retail space. Customers are seeking a shopping and dining experience. “They want their senses to be awakened and surprised by the offering. Shopping and dining are about the atmosphere and journey as much as they are about purpose behind the activity.

“Not all destinations offer the same thing and people take the opportunity to do their shopping, enjoy lunch or coffee so it becomes a morning or day out not just a trip to the shops.” Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford says there is no doubt investor confidence is high in the region. “The region’s visitor economy is forecast to grow strongly for the next seven years at least. The planned upgrade of the Bruce Highway and expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport will further fuel that growth. It is being realised as an attractive investment destination,” he says. “We are competing with the globe for visitors, and retail is an important part of the tourism and destination experience. People on holidays are relaxed and often have the time or want to indulge in some retail therapy. “We know people coming in on cruise ships get off and want to know where the shops are and how can they get to Sunshine Plaza. We also know that Eumundi Markets is the largest tourist attraction on the Sunshine Coast. “While many visitors flock to the markets held across the Coast every weekend, many other visitors are not looking for conventional tourism retail but instead want to shop where the locals shop and are increasingly seeking an authentic experience.”

SIPPY DOWNS PARKS Draft plans for a new major, district level playing space in Sippy Downs, along with improvements to existing parks and the addition of new sporting facilities, will be available for community comment from Monday, February 26. The Draft Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan has been developed following consultation with the community which helped us understand how the parks are being used, key issues and demand for park activities. The main feedback from residents was that they wanted to see newer and more user friendly parks and that they often travelled to other communities to use play spaces. You will be able to review the draft master plan and provide feedback by completing the online survey at council’s website before 5pm on March 26. You can also email ParksBusinessTechnical@ sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au. A final master plan will be developed following the feedback period.

As well as the enjoyment of taking part, they will have the chance to share in $10,000 in prizes. To be a healthy, smart, creative region, it’s critical we provide a platform for young people to develop their ideas, entrepreneurial skills and networks. And that’s what these awards do, as well as being a great opportunity for our students to learn, network, collaborate with mentors and industry professionals, and gain real-life experiences. We know many of the jobs and careers of the future haven’t even been created yet and they will be shaped by our best young minds. My thanks go to Telstra for its continuing support of these awards.

BANK ON IT

O

ver the past 12 months the average major bank total return of four per cent has lagged both the S&P/ASX 200 (+12 per cent) and the MSCI World Banks (+27 per cent) indices. On a 12-month forward price to earnings (PE) basis, the major bank shares are now trading at a 24 per cent discount to the industrial shares listed on the ASX, and dividend yields are strong at about six per cent. We think capital management could be a catalyst for the banking sector to re-rate, and Westpac is well-positioned to benefit. We have upgraded our recommendation on Westpac to accumulate from hold and raised our target price slightly to $33.10 from $33. We are attracted to the bank’s solid return on equity and stable platform of well-run businesses. We expect Westpac’s EPS growth to trail ANZ Bank (ANZ, accumulate), but exceed National Australia and Commonwealth Bank over the next three years. Costs have already been rebased for higher investment, as has the tax rate, and the strong capital ratios have put Westpac in a solid position to address potential capital management options at the end of this calendar year.

Support networks are the key to success for new businesses to the region, a recent report has revealed. The USC School of Business partnered with Sunshine Coast Council in preparing the report Sunshine Coast: The Place to Be: Encouraging an Entrepreneurial Culture, which draws on data from both organisations and the insights of more than 100 local entrepreneurs. USC lead researcher Dr Retha de Villiers Scheepers says the report shows that while the Coast has great business networks, new arrivals are not always aware of the support available. “There is a high degree of early-stage entrepreneurial activity on the Coast and these businesses will grow, along with the population, over the coming years,’’ she says. “We only have a population of around 300,000, compared to Brisbane’s 1.16 million and, in terms of entrepreneurship, we really are punching above our weight.” The report will be used to inform programs to channel and support new migrants into business networks as the region prepares to swell to a predicted population of 550,000 by 2040. The report is also expected to guide the delivery of the $1 million Sunshine Coast Regional Innovation Program, a 26-partner collaboration with Advance Queensland to boost local economic opportunities. USC teaches entrepreneurship as part of its business degrees. It also hosts the Innovation Centre on campus, which is a hub for innovators, entrepreneurial start-ups and high-growth companies. To view the report, visit digitalsunshinecoast.com.au/ecosystem.

“Capital management could be a catalyst for the banking sector to re-rate, and Westpac is well-positioned to benefit” suggest the banks can manage these, and should also support sound asset quality indicators in the near term. Regulatory risks remain – not least of which is the Royal Commission this year – but the sector looks inexpensive versus the market and the bulk of regulatory headwinds have already been weathered. For Westpac, we think the major risk relates to the ongoing asset quality of the mortgage book, although we believe the book is well secured and the economic backdrop is improving.

Across the banking sector we see potential for a material improvement in deposit spreads, modest leverage to rising interest rates – although we note this is a double-edged sword – and the likelihood of a sustained pick-up in business credit growth.

Menopause: Are HRT or Bio-Identical hormones prolonging the inevitable? Know the Facts Hot flushing, insomnia, mood swings, and migraines can be debilitating and unbearable for many women, though completely unnecessary. HRT may seem to be the only answer, though can you remain on HRT or Bio-Identical Hormones for the rest of your life? Are you at risk of prolonging the inevitable? Many women have been prescribed HRT for years, even decades beyond the expected end of menopause. Is this really necessary? Unfortunately, when it comes time to look at reducing hormone replacement, often women will go through the same symptoms of menopause as late as in her 70’s, though now not as young or robust in health to be able to handle it. The symptoms of menopause are only expected to affect a woman for 18 months from onset to completion, yet we are treating the condition for up to 20 years or more. In our western culture, our lifestyle goes against how a woman’s body functions, and we have forgotten how to pass on the important information about how the body transitions smoothly.

It is a lot easier than most women know, and are often shocked to find other health conditions may be the cause of exacerbated menopausal symptoms

Menopausal symptoms arise when there is the sudden drop in hormones that cause the symptoms, rather than a slow decline over years. Your adrenal glands also produce hormones for a smooth transition as long as you allow them to. It’s not as difficult as many expect to reduce and sometimes completely eradicate symptoms of menopause within as little as a month when the factors involved are addressed. Hormones rely on cholesterol, an individualised diet to control your hormone fluctuations, adrenal support, healthy strains of specific gut bacteria, and a healthy liver. Addressing these systems at the same time can promote hormone production, not only resolving menopausal symptoms, but anti-aging as well. The good news is that it’s quite simple to do, and can have a very big impact in a very short period of time. You CAN get off HRT, and get on with a healthy life. If you’d like to know more, call for a free half hour consultation with one of our health practitioners, where you’ll learn about everything that causes hormonal and mood problems, and how to achieve optimal health.

PROFILE

NAKED AMBITION The Australian Body Art Festival is a labour of love for organiser Danielle Taylor. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

I

t’s colourful, it’s creative, it’s family-friendly and it brings thousands of people to the Sunshine Coast, but the Australian Body Art Festival, which will be held on April 7 and 8 this year, was almost not to be. In her 20 years of marketing and event management, Danielle Taylor has been involved in many an exciting project, but the Australian Body Art Festival holds a special place in her heart, as she has played a major role in resurrecting the festival after it was struggling with financial losses in 2015. The grassroots festival began in Eumundi in 2007 and took off when Mrs Taylor was brought on board in 2009 to run it. Over five years, she built it up into an internationally renowned event attracting more than 10,000 visitors. The festival then floundered when the management changed hands and it was on the brink of collapse when Eumundi Markets offered it back to Mrs Taylor to run. As the president of the Cooroy Chamber of Commerce, she rallied her local community to get behind it. “I talked to the Cooroy community groups, the Chamber of Commerce and said ‘do we want it in Cooroy?’,” she says. “Everyone was really supportive. We took it back to how we used to run it, which was a community-style event. Everyone had buy-in. “Last year was the first time we ran it and it took off straight away. There were a lot of challenges. We were starting from scratch, we had to find sponsors, we didn’t have the marketing collateral, but it has bounced back really quickly. “Already we have increased competitor numbers, we have more artists flying in and more sponsors. We had about 7000 people last year and we already know it’s going to be heaps bigger this year, just from the interest and the following we’ve had. We’re expecting it to get back to the levels it used to be.” More than 100 volunteers run the festival, which is free and is held over two days in the hinterland town. Artists from all over Australia pay to enter the competition, which offers cash prizes for best air brushing, best brush and sponge body art and best special effects and wearable art. But it’s the accolades more than the money artists are in it for. “It’s quite prestigious to be a winner or a runner-up or people’s choice winner,” says Danielle. “It really is a national

Danielle Taylor (above) gets into the spirit of the festival

competition and these are top-class artists competing against each other. “It’s picked up in all sorts of media, particularly online media, and shared around the world. It really is something that isn’t done anywhere else in Australia to this scale and it puts Cooroy, Noosa and the Sunshine Coast in the international spotlight for quite a period of time, with the coverage it gets across Australia and overseas.” You’d think it would be hard finding people willing to strip off in front of complete strangers – models wear briefs and nipple covers but that’s all – however, Mrs Taylor says it’s never a problem. “There’s always a massive line-up of people ready to be painted,” she says. “We’ve got so many awesome models. I’ve never been a model because I don’t have the confidence for it. We do have people of all shapes and sizes – they’re unclothed, not naked. Once they’re painted, they look way

more covered than if they were clothed. The feedback from the models is it’s a really amazing experience. They find it quite calming and relaxing and it’s something that’s quite an amazing transformation – you actually become a piece of art.” It’s certainly not for the faint-hearted though. Models are required to keep still for more than five hours while they’re being painted, and most of that time they have to stand. Mrs Taylor says she puts countless hours into running the event – which costs $40,000 to stage – and it’s really a labour of love. “I’ve got quite an affection for it,” she says. “It’s a huge amount of work and I used to do it on my own, but I have a team of four now. “From an event management perspective, all the normal things get ticked off – organising entertainment, insurance, equipment – all the mundane stuff. But it’s just such a unique event and you don’t see it anywhere else. “It’s a type of art that is really interactive. They’re living, breathing canvases and the finished products are mindblowing. It’s an art form that’s attractive to everybody. You don’t have to be an art connoisseur to appreciate how amazing it is. Bottom line, it’s just really fun and different.”

Fairytale

Todd Widdicombe thinks we’ve all been blind to the evil supervillian that is Elon Musk.

B

efore I begin, let me just say this is only my opinion and it’s not meant to be anything other than a light-hearted commentary that with any luck you’ll maybe take on board and throw your support behind. Maybe you’ll be all over it like Barnaby Joyce on a paternity test so that it’s not just me, on my own, standing at the gates of oblivion saying “well, I told youse so”.

The question I’m posing is simply this: “Is Elon Musk – the genius behind the Tesla motor vehicle company – a well-renowned, goofy billionaire scientist or an evil supervillain, hell bent on world domination?” I believe it’s the latter. Sure we were all mystified when he sent his Starman crash test dummy into space in a Tesla. Elon won over the hearts and imaginations of billions of earthlings and potentially a couple of dozen lady aliens who thought “this rich Earth geek goes alright”. But this whole car in space exercise was a ruse, people. It was nothing but wellorchestrated trickery, a distraction, Elon’s running subterfuge so we don’t notice him doing other stuff like, World Domination. This guy Elon Musk has built cars that not only can drive themselves, but he’s designed them to withstand a chemical or biological weapon attack. Why would you need that? Is Elon planning to kill anyone who doesn’t drive a Tesla? He’s created a stunning personal fleet of rockets that can take off and land again and then take off. All under his control. He has a mysterious secret base in the Nevada desert – sure it’s no glammo moon base or volcanic lair but that’s coming, I promise you. He even wants to build a

state-of-the-art boring machine to bore his way through to the Earth’s core. I don’t trust the Musk. And what about his supervillain name? Yep, he’s got that covered too! Elon Musk, Lex Luthor. Elon Musk, Auric Goldfinger. Elon Musk, Hans Gruber. Elon Musk, Hank Scorpio. C’mon! In short Elon Musk could be a supervillain. Don’t you see? Let’s recap: • He owns a space company • He appears to be saving the world • He wants to colonise Mars • His name is Elon Musk. Don’t get me wrong, he’s fooled the majority; the Elon believers are many. I call them Muskavites. But they are the sheeple. Don’t be the sheeple people. They call Elon a “futurist”, but what’s the other name for that? Oh yeah, that’s right, “supervillain”. Now you may well think I’m nuttier than a Snickers, but mark my words friends, all Elon needs is a fluffy white cat, a subterranean lair, some friggin‘ sharks with laser beams attached to them and bada-bing bada-boom…(Cue the Dr Evil theme song.) Supervillain. I’m telling you now, watch his space.

Author: Danielle Steel Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane There was so much potential for an explosive novel that takes the classic Cinderella tale and gives it a modern spin – with this future princess living in the Napa Valley and an heir to one of the region’s finest vineyards. But sadly, Danielle Steel missed so many opportunities to transform her tale of the wicked stepmother into a wild and fantastical ride. With her signature storytelling style, very little time is spent on conversations between characters, with more of a narrative storyline that makes it hard to feel sympathy for the heroine as she is subjected to out-of-this-world cruelty by the woman her father had been married to for a short time before passing away. Despite being subjected to all manner of unspeakable behaviour by her stepmother and her two sons, she seems unable to do much to defend herself. While there are some fairytale elements, they are few and far between, making it a somewhat pedestrian read that can help with a touch of escapism.

CHANCE TO LEARN FROM RENOWNED ARTIST

SHOUT

out!

Beatrice Prost’s latest exhibition, Monochromatic, illustrates her love of the Noosa River and her memories as a 10-yearold developing black and white photography. This love of the monochromatic state has undoubtedly left a lasting impression as it continues to guide her work through her adult journey as an artist. Ms Prost’s skill in manipulating her images illustrates her confidence in various media including ceramics, photography and acrylics, all of which are featured in this exhibition. You can join Ms Prost for a workshop, where she will take you through her process of incising paper and Perspex using small electric carving tools. With this method, you will be able to produce unique patterns. Beatrice Prost’s Monochromatic exhibition is at Wan’din’in Arts Space, Eumundi until March 18. The Carve Your Marks workshop is on February 23 from 10.30am to 1.30pm. Tickets are $60 and include materials and morning tea. To book, email beatrice.g.prost@gmail.com.

HELEN KELLER SEQUEL COMES TO LIFE The cast who brought The Miracle Worker to the stage last year have come together to perform the sequel Monday after The Miracle. The play, which will be performed at Lind Lane Theatre, is about 25-year-old Helen Keller, who has graduated from Radcliffe College with the help of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, and is preparing to write her famous book The Story of My Life. Director Glenda Campi says it is a story of transformation on many levels. “There are lessons that resonate still for us today,” she says. “This is a wonderful, uplifting night of drama, humour and joy.” Monday after The Miracle is on at the Lind Lane Theatre in Nambour from February 23 to March 3.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

On Thursday night the full moon fires up your sign and disruptive Mars squares your ruler Mercury, which will rattle your composure, crank up your critical side, and amplify the plethora of problems you’re facing at the moment.

Your health requires some focused attention, so spend quiet quality time on your own this week, as the full moon illuminates your solitude zone. Activities like reading, meditation, yoga, and walking in nature would all suit.

Family and friends will demand your attention, but the full moon urges you to take time out for yourself. If you indulge in your interests and passions, you’ll have more to offer those around you. Don’t be too safe and sensible, though.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

The pressure is on, and family will also demand plenty of your time. If you promise more than you can deliver, everyone will just end up disappointed. How on Earth will you get everything done? Enthusiasm and persuasion are the keys.

This week, good fortune comes via social networking, in person, and/or online. But, are you brooding on the past and kicking yourself for romantic or career opportunities you’ve missed along the way? It’s time to learn from your mistakes.

Money matters loom large as the full moon fires up your finance zones. Plus, Venus and Jupiter send a confidence boost your way, especially involving your public reputation or inner self-esteem – so be on the look-out for a lucky opportunity.

With the sun, Mercury, Venus and Neptune all meandering through your sign, you’re the quintessential Piscean at the moment, which can be positive and negative. It’s a terrific time to express your creative, compassionate, and spiritual sides.

BEST COAST TOWNS FOR FAMILIES REVEALED Mountain Creek tops the list of the Coast’s most family-friendly suburbs in a new report. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he Sunshine Coast has long been touted as one of the best places to raise a family, but now thanks to the release of CoreLogic research, it’s clear to see which are the Coast’s more family-friendly suburbs. The research, which was commissioned by Aussie Home Loans, saw the renowned researchers look at several factors, including percentage of family households in each suburb, affordability and 2016 Census data. Mountain Creek was found to be the most family-friendly suburb in the region. This may not come as a surprise to most, since the area has a strong reputation for being coveted by families seeking to live within the Mountain Creek school catchment and close proximity to the beach. Rounding up the top five were Peregian Springs, Mooloolah Valley, Kuluin and Meridan Plains. The only two beachside suburbs to make it into the top 20 were Yaroomba and Wurtulla, which came in at 11th and 19th respectively. North Shore Realty agent Jonathon Cameron says he is not surprised to see Peregian Springs rank second in the list, with its location a short drive to the beach among its many qualities.

property went under contract within three days of it being live. There’s so much demand that sellers may be surprised at what they can actually achieve.” Mr Cameron advises sellers to “put your best foot forward in terms of investing in your marketing.” “For buyers looking to move their way in there, don’t hesitate, don’t circle around and visit a multitude of different homes over a three-month period because the houses you are looking at today might be gone tomorrow,

what you think might be expensive today will be cheap tomorrow.” The majority of sales in the Peregian Springs area have been in the $600,000 to $700,000 range with an average of 35 days on the market. There has also been an increase in the number of homes selling in the $800,000 to $1 million bracket. Rounding out the top 20 were Yaroomba, Palmwoods, Eumundi, Beerwah, Caloundra West, Glasshouse Mountains, Cooroibah, Coes Creek, Wurtulla and Sippy Downs.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY SUBURBS

Jonathon Cameron “You’ve got two good schools, great restaurants and the recreational centre for residents who live within the Ridges. To top it off, and this is something that is often overlooked, there are two major sporting venues there for the local community to get involved with, so it’s easy to see why a lot of people are attracted to living there.” Mr Cameron says stock availability can be a challenge in the area, making it a great climate for those considering selling. “I sold a house last year in November and the owners had lived in the property for two-and-a-half years and seen an increase of $50,000 in that time.

he $87 million Stockland Birtinya Shopping Centre isn’t the only thing coming to life at Oceanside, with the first-floor slab having recently been laid at boutique apartment development Affinity Place. Developer Donald Ritchie from Ritchie Property says construction has progressed well since commencing earlier this year. “Vantage Building Group has been appointed the builder, and the increased activity on-site has certainly generated plenty of enquiries about the 30 apartments on offer,” Mr Ritchie says. “With the Sunshine Coast University Hospital so close by, there’s naturally plenty of demand for accommodation in the area among health workers and even patients who wish to be within walking distance.” Mr Ritchie says many of the interested buyers are interstate investors looking for the next property hotspot. “Many of these buyers are seeking a sound investment and are attracted by the affordable price point, low body corporate rates and solid rental returns,” he says. “They have heard about the infrastructure growth on the Sunshine Coast and game-changer projects such as the new hospital and health campus, the $347

million Sunshine Coast Airport expansion and the $300 million Maroochydore CBD transformation, and they’re keen to capitalise on the investment opportunities on offer.” Comprising 30 apartments split across three levels, Affinity Place has been architecturally-designed and features north-facing views, bespoke floor plans, a lift, two designated parking bays per apartment and a shared barbecue recreation area. The two and three-bedroom apartments are located in the busy heart of Oceanside, Birtinya, and are close to a range of amenities including shops, schools and cafes, as well as Lake Kawana.

ivil works are currently underway at the Banksia Place development in Palmwoods, and the countdown is on until titles are issued around April this year. Developer Donald Ritchie of Ritchie Property says he is thrilled to see the site taking shape and that the large lot sizes are undoubtedly proving a strong drawcard for buyers. “We are currently working closely with Pacific Blue Developments, who have been appointed to construct the three and four-bedroom homes,” Mr Ritchie says. “We have partnered with the Pacific Blue team in past years and opted to bring them on board once again due to their high quality workmanship and strong track record.” Mr Ritchie says six of the 19 lots have already sold, with the majority of buyers hailing from Palmwoods. “Part of Palmwoods’ appeal is its community spirit and leafy surrounds, so it’s not surprising that once people move there, they never want to leave,” he says. “Our current buyers have jumped at the opportunity to secure a brand new home in a community they love.” “Banksia Place will feature large, level

allotments ranging from 608 square metres to 764 square metres in size.” Mr Ritchie says that while the majority of existing buyers are owner-occupiers, the development also poses strong investment potential. Banksia Place is a picturesque residential estate offering house and land packages. The three and four-bedroom homes are fenced and feature stone benchtops, European appliances, airconditioning, a double lock-up garage, 5kW solar power system and landscaped gardens. An array of cafes and parks, as well as a community hall, bowling club, tennis club, cricket ground, football club and public pool are located nearby. The local primary school is also in easy walking distance. Contact Ritchie Property 5443 6300 for more information.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

So, it’s looking like the Billabong Pipe Masters 2019 will be cancelled. WSL is getting a little smart and it backfired. I guess they could always hold it in Kelly Slater’s wave pool? Where are my sharp pencils? Man, that last swell was kinda hitting with wrong direction. A lot of hard work and floggings were experienced down at Moffat. This weekend still should have some waves with Sunday looking the goods. But more importantly, the snow is looking good for anyone travelling to Japan or Canada. Anyhoo, enjoy your weekend.
