THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 491 March 16, 2018
FROM THE EDITOR
After epic shows at the Woodford Folk Festival, Wild Marmalade return to the Sunshine Coast to play at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on March 24, supported by Flaskas. Taking things to the next level, the Marmalade boys are poised to raise the roof and deliver the good vibes. Wild Marmalade promote themselves as being one of the pioneers of the didgeridoo and drum sound. From their humble origins as street entertainers in the late ’90s, they have taken their unique sound around the world. We have two tickets to give away.
he Sunshine Coast is a thriving hub of economic activity. We have more than $10 billion in public and private projects on the go and an average annual economic growth rate of 4.09 per cent – a percentage higher than the national rate. The Sunshine Coast Council has been focusing on its seven high-value industries to bring jobs and overall economic growth to the region. Now, there are whispers the region could be on the verge of creating an eighth industry. The defence sector is driving millions of dollars into the region with local business attracting lucrative contracts. Journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane spoke with four of these business owners about their projects and the major investment. The projects span from the creation of unmanned ground vehicles to the manufacturing of power generators for Australian military vehicles. You can read the story on page 12. From military to Miss World, this week we also chat with Mountain Creek State High School student Samara Welbourne on her quest to be crowned Miss World Australia’s highest fundraiser in the name of children’s charity, Variety Queensland. It’s terrific to see someone so young championing the causes of those less fortunate. Plus, we have local news, beauty, fashion, business, 32 pages of property and a four-page special Commonwealth Games feature. Be sure to find out how you can celebrate the Games here at home. Happy reading!

LIFE ON THE LAND Where do you live? On our 56-acre property in Bli Bli, it’s right on the river. Before there was road access (a long while ago), we received all our groceries by mail boat. Our milk came from the dairy in Yandina.
the steady and at times devastating development of the Coast. I have seen it changed many times since the 1950s, when we first bought the farm. The extensive residential expansion has made farming increasingly difficult.
First job? I worked as a printer in Brisbane.
Best day in your life? My wedding day.
What are you currently working on? Managing the new crop of figs and custard apples, which are in season until April and June. The strawberry season is between May and September, so we’re also preparing for that. We have a farm shop at Bli Bli and you can pick your own strawberries. We make ice-cream and jam out of our fruit. We began growing strawberries 33 years ago but we’ve had to diversify over the years, as people are growing so many now. The cost of production has gone up dramatically, so what we’re getting back has stayed the same or gone down.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? My wedding day. I soon became a more mature and responsible person. When you commit to do your life with another person, it really changes your perspective.
BIO Born in Obi Obi, Lilian McMartin has lived on the Coast her entire life and is a farmer along with her husband. Last year, they produced more than 180,000 strawberry plants as well as figs, custard apples and lychees. As well as running their farm, they have a large family, which now also includes a great grandson.
IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON
“Before there was road access, we received all our groceries by mail boat”
Your family includes? My husband, Graham, one son and two daughters, 10 grandchildren and one great grandson.
Your greatest regret? Not being able to achieve some things that I wanted to do, though last year, Graham and I went to Israel which was a wonderful and much needed trip away.
What achievement are you most proud of? Graham and I have been married for 48 years. We started from nothing and gradually built our life together. Most of the family are involved in the business.
First car? A 1959 Holden.
You are happiest when? I can work together with people collaboratively so a good outcome can be reached for both parties.
Favourite song? A hymn or I also love One Day at a Time.
What frustrates you the most? When businesses are difficult to work with.
Best advice you’ve been given? If you bite off more than you can chew, start chewing like mad. It works for both business and life. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? My home, my land, I absolutely love our property. We’ve been here so long, it’s part of who I am. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I’d love to see it again how it was 45 years ago before
How do you deal with your frustrations? Look for another way to approach the situation – again, this works both in farming and in life. Advice to your 18 year-old self? Be patient and think before you rush in. Tea or coffee? Coffee – I like a strong flat white.
Know someone interesting on the Sunshine Coast? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

MUCH MORE THAN BOMBS AND BULLETS Innovative Sunshine Coast businesses have secured multimillion-dollar contracts with the Australian Defence Force and with $200 billion up for grabs, defence could become our region’s eighth high-value industry. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
“Defence is eager to see more Sunshine Coast businesses look to the defence industry for opportunities” Christopher Pyne, Minister
ou may not see navy ships being built in our ports or tanks being assembled in industrial complexes on the Sunshine Coast, but there is a thriving and growing defence industry operating in the region. Innovation and experience is in abundance on the Coast, with some businesses attracting lucrative contracts totalling millions for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) over several years and, while the industry has been notoriously hard to break into, changes in the past few years have meant more Australian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have the opportunity to tender for defence work. Before you think you need to be in the munitions, automotive, aircraft or sea vessel businesses to enter defence, a quick glance at the tenders on offer show there is a defence application for every one of the Coast’s seven high-value industries. The Federal Government announced a record $200 billion investment in the nation’s defence capability in 2016 that will last a decade and the accompanying Defence White Paper encouraged the defence industry to move its reliance away from ‘global primes’(multinational contractors) to support Australian industry, creating a pathway for businesses here on the Sunshine Coast to vie for a slice of the biggest peacetime military spend in the country’s history. Hundreds of local businesses have attended forums throughout 2017
12 My Weekly Preview | March 16, 2018
conducted by Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace with members of the newly formed Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) and Mr Wallace firmly believes defence could become the region’s eighth high-value industry. Mr Wallace’s most recent forum on March 6 focused on the Defence Export Strategy released in January, which expands on the new support networks to assist Australian businesses with defence applications to become competitive internationally. Mr Wallace says he wants to see at least $200 million of the government’s funding spent on the Sunshine Coast. “I don’t want to see it all go to South Australia and whilst I’m not insisting we are going to build ships and aircraft on the Coast, what we can do is take advantage of our high-tech industries and build things like componentry. These are the high-tech, engineering jobs of the future,” he says. “Military is not all about bombs and bullets, just about every one of the high-value industries from the Coast can have military applications. “Businesses have still got to demonstrate not only value for money, but also that they are a world leader and you’ve got something no one else is doing.” Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne says Australian SMEs are often the sources of highly innovative ideas and technology and the Sunshine Coast is right up there among the best.
“The Government has been enthused by the response of Sunshine Coast businesses to the opportunities the defence investment is providing,” he says. “Since opening in December 2016, the Defence Innovation Hub has received a total of 85 proposals from Queensland-based organisations. Of these, around 10 per cent were from organisations based in the Sunshine Coast region. “Defence is eager to see more Sunshine Coast businesses look to the defence industry for opportunities to contribute and provide their innovative ideas. Over the last five years, approximately 12 Sunshine Coast businesses have received assistance to engage with defence, including through the CDIC.” Mr Pyne says innovation is vital to the long-term future of Australia’s defence capability. “The Sunshine Coast has a strong defence industry, with many global primes present in Queensland, as well as innovative small to medium enterprises. These businesses are of a high calibre and have demonstrated eagerness to get involved with defence and take advantage of the opportunities and support being provided,” he says.
To find out more about defence industry opportunities, visit business.gov.au/ centre-for-defence-industry-capability. Current business opportunities can be found at tenders.gov.au.
BEHIND THE BIG BUCKS • Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) – established to provide an entry point for Australian industry, particularly SMEs, into defence. • The Defence Innovation Hub – a $640-million initiative that provides a mechanism for SMEs to propose ideas and collaborate in the development of innovative technology relevant to defence capability. • The Next Generation Technologies Fund – a $730-million initiative for SMEs to invest in innovative technology research and development. • The Australian Industry Capability Program – places greater requirements on prime contractors to maximise opportunities for Australian industry in relation to major capital equipment procurements of $20 million and above. • Global Supply Chain Program – helps SMEs to compete for work in the prime’s international supply chains. • Defence Export Strategy – offers greater support to help SMEs achieve export success. • Defence Export Facility – This $3.8-billion fund is administered by Efic, Australia’s export credit agency, to help Australian companies get finance to underpin the sales of their equipment overseas.

COAST BUSINESSES ALREADY ON BOARD WITH DEFENCE
Adam and Shane Kennelly
ENIQUEST DC and AC generators, auxiliary power units (APUs) and in-service generator repairs Based in: Bells Creek Contractor since: 2003 Value: $13 million Eniquest builds military grade DC and AC power generators and auxiliary power units, which are used in the Australian military’s Bushmaster vehicles. It is a 15-year relationship that was established after much research and innovative design. Eniquest has also taken its expertise overseas, exporting its generators to the Singapore military. Eniquest development engineer Nicholas Ree says there are a number of reasons why the company has had such longevity in the industry. “We are a very innovative company and we have a large research and development department. We are constantly working on the next best thing, and we have an incredibly intelligent and motivated team,’’ he says. “Because we are an engineering firm and manufacturing facility, we have full control over what we can make.” Mr Ree says those wanting to crack into defence will need to do their research. “There is no reason why world-class defence products can’t be made on the Sunshine Coast. The Coast contains some of the brightest minds and resources in this country and the defence industry can truly benefit from their input,” he says.
Civil, electrical and building works Based in: Sippy Downs Contractor since: 2015 Latest project value: $25 million
Unmanned ground vehicles Based in: Caloundra Contractor since: 2016 Value: $1.4 million
Kennelly Constructions directors Shane and Adam Kennelly began working in the defence industry in 2015. In that time they’ve worked at many different Australian military bases around the country, completing more than 15 projects that have totalled close to $25 million. Originally working heavily in the mining sector, Shane says their strength for working on remote and regional projects was a strong asset for the defence force. “We were already working in industries where quality and safety and environment are paramount, so being able to transfer those skill sets over to the (military) base was pretty easy. The biggest challenge you have working in the defence bases is understanding an operational environment. At any stage, they can become active and you need to be able to be communicating well with all the stakeholders on site. “Also, the infrastructure we are building is critical to the upkeep of the base and required for training purposes.” The company has installed targeting systems on rails for tanks to practice on and constructed a lot of road and high-voltage infrastructure on the bases. “I think the opportunities are there for any SME who wants to get involved (in defence), but the critical thing is to have the relevant systems and processes in place to enable you to be able to work in defence.”
Praesidium Global designs and manufactures unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) that have multiple military applications for the Australian Army. The UGVs are a medium sized, sixwheeled rugged system with multiple capabilities, including extracting wounded soldiers and following behind soldiers in the field to carry heavy equipment and munitions. Praesidium Global has benefitted from the support of the CDIC, as part of Team Defence Australia’s contingent at the 2017 Defence and Security Equipment International exhibition in London last September. The UK military will be trialling its UGVs, which could potentially lead to a lucrative export opportunity. Praesidium Global CEO David Baird says they manufacture 47 per cent of the products supplied to the ADF using local businesses. “Being a regional base with a respected manufacturing industry, the Sunshine Coast is in a prime position to supply in to numerous projects that have been announced by the Australian Defence Force,” he says. “Our contract with defence has allowed us to work in an exciting and challenging space and has introduced our company to an innovative space that we may be able to leverage over to the civilian space such as law enforcement and border protection.”

HELIMODS Cabin wet decks for the Romeo Seahawk Helicopters Based in: Caloundra Contractor since: 2017 Value: $154,000 HeliMods founder Will Shrapnel began planning for an entrance into the defence industry many years before the Defence White Paper opened up opportunity. In May last year, HeliMods successfully tendered to manufacture 14 aircraft cabin wet decks for the Royal Australian Navy. A wet deck is a protective floor liner that reduces an aircraft cabin floor’s exposure to saltwater and surface wear caused by search and rescue operations and equipment. Mr Shrapnel says although the contract is small when compared to the value of his company’s civil contract work, it has provided the opportunity to show the Australian Defence Force what Helimods can do. “I have been actively involved with the forums and workshops at the university. Local businesses can consider the defence industry as a great way to diversify their supply options to give them more resilience to market upturns and downturns,’’ he says. “The nature of the defence work is longer term and often it’s enduring, budgets are large and committed well in advance. It is important for businesses to consider entry into the defence space as a strategic investment.”

Kody Jorgensen (pictured), a Year 12 student at Maroochydore State High School, has been named as the 2018 Queensland LEO of the Year. Leos Clubs are a youth branch of Lions International (LEO stands for leadership, experience, opportunity). Kody was president of Maroochydore High’s Swannies Leo Club in 2017 and is male captain at his school this year. Mooloolaba Lions Club president Tim Fraser says Kody is a worthy recipient of the honour and will be a great ambassador for the Queensland Leos in the year ahead.
$3 MILLION PICCABEEN GREEN OPENS AT PALMWOODS
WILSON’S LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE WELCOMED
From a sloped carpark to a vibrant green community space with a boardwalk and 77 new plants – a piece of Palmwoods has been completely transformed by one of Sunshine Coast Council’s most significant infrastructure upgrades from the past year. The new $3 million Piccabeen Green town square in the heart of Palmwoods, named by the community, was officially opened last week. The name reflects the 54 Piccabeen palms that have been planted to line the connecting boardwalk.
Pro surfer Julian Wilson and wife Ashley have welcomed a baby girl into the world. The Peregianbased world number three surfer posted a photo of his daughter, Olivia Madison Wilson, and her mum on Facebook last week with the caption: “So proud of mummy and her strength”. Little Olivia was born on February 28, just over a week before Mr Wilson’s first major competition of the year, the Quiksilver Pro on the Gold Coast.
At the International Women’s Day breakfast hosted by the Zonta Club of Caloundra on March 8, three young women were given an additional boost to their education in the form of bursaries.

Mayor Mark Jamieson took to the stage to present Rebecca Padman with the Amelia Earhart Bursary, which will help the OP 1 student to further her studies this year.

Their decision to study together does have a more serious basis. Rowland and Robyn want to add psychology services to their private Christian counselling and business coaching practice, while Isaac plans to join the family business when he graduates. The Joneses will split their studies across USC’s Gympie and Sunshine Coast campuses.

amara Welbourne is one of those kind souls who has always felt a pull towards helping others. The Mountain Creek State High School student has been a volunteer since the age of 12 and first came to the wider community’s attention when she wrote the children’s craft book, How To Make Fairy Houses. Miss Welbourne went on to raise $20,000 to build a library in Bali, which was completed last year and now provides vital services to 20 villages. Her tireless work on the campaign saw her named Young Leader at the 2017 Inspirational Women’s Awards. Despite now tackling the challenging study schedule of Year 12, Miss Welbourne has set off on a completely new journey, fundraising for children’s charity Variety Queensland as an entrant in Miss World Australia. Variety Queensland improves the lives of children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs by providing life-saving operations, Sunshine Coaches for school children and community groups, equipment for children’s hospitals, incubators, wheelchairs and walking frames, camps for sick and disabled children and more. Miss Welbourne recently competed in the Miss World preliminary finals and has made it through to the state finals, which will be held in Brisbane in May. While she admits it has been a huge step from roughing it to help construct the library in Bali to being primped and preened for the Miss World competition, she says it has been a fun experience. “This is all completely new to me, but what I have enjoyed the most is getting to know the children who receive Variety scholarships. Many of them have disabilities and they have been quite inspirational to me and it has driven my passion to raise as much money for them as I can,” she says. “I have been working with kids since I started my business, Enchanted Fairy Houses, and it is something I am passionate about. This is why Miss World is the perfect opportunity for me to do something that I love.” This year is going to be a full one for Miss Welbourne, who will be a baton bearer when the Commonwealth Games baton arrives on the Sunshine Coast and will fly to Silicon Valley in California next month for the international Hackathon event, where she will join students from schools around the world to work through issues facing the travel, health, science and medical industries. While most Miss World entrants have their eyes fixed on the winner’s crown, Samara says she is determined to take home the title of highest fundraiser.
FAST RAIL PROPOSAL ON TRACK The Sunshine Coast is one step closer to an improved rail network with the Federal Government last week announcing a faster rail proposal to connect the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane will progress to the business case development stage. The submission to the Australian Government’s Faster Rail Connecting Capital Cities and Orbital Regional Centres program was made by the North Coast Connect Consortium (Stockland, partnered by SMEC, Urbis and KPMG) and supported by the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay and Brisbane City councils. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the North Coast Connect submission supports the council’s advocacy for better connectivity between the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. “This is a great step forward in our efforts to secure better connectivity and an integrated public transport solution,’’ he says. “I would like to acknowledge the efforts of Ted O’Brien, Member for Fairfax, in helping to secure the support of the Federal Government for this project. “I made it very clear in the lead-up to the State election in November… that investment by the State and Federal governments in road, rail and public transport for the Sunshine Coast is critical and one of the highest priorities for this region. “We now have an opportunity to examine and evaluate a new model for connecting major population centres within the region and, in turn, better connecting the Sunshine Coast with Brisbane City and the Moreton Bay region. Mr O’Brien says the North Coast Connect proposal will create new communities and create job growth. “The North Coast Connect proposal comprises upgrades to the existing North Coast Line and a new rail line from Beerwah to Maroochydore. These changes would ease congestion and improve road safety on the Bruce Highway while increasing freight movements to north Queensland. This proposal would reduce travel time from two hours to 45 minutes, increase capacity and revitalise railway towns such as Nambour.”

CALOUNDRA’S VILLAGE VIBE ALIVE AND WELL Caloundra businesses are banding together to offer customers incentives to keep shopping in the village while major upgrades are underway.
eachside towns have a kind of magnetic pull on people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all and Caloundra has come a long way since it was a sleepy fishing village in the 1970s. What residents enjoy and visitors flock here in their droves to experience, is a vibrant seaside town with plenty on offer for people of all ages. While the lure of a lazy oceanside getaway appeals to some, those who are more adventurous can get active with watersports, walking, bike riding and other indoor adventures if they so choose. Caloundra Holiday Centre founder Peter Ryan says the “glorified fishing village of 3000 souls and no traffic lights” has been replaced with a thriving hub that is attracting major sporting, music and cultural festivals and has built a solid reputation as a destination that can easily cater for any demographic. And when it comes to the retail offerings, there is nothing quite like the homely, village-style feel of Bulcock Street. Caloundra business owners banded together to form the Caloundra Business Alliance (CBA) in September 2017 to actively promote the area through innovative
marketing, events and promotions. Their first event for 2018, the Sidewalk Sale in February, was a great success and to keep the momentum going, the alliance launched the Shop Caloundra Loyalty Card on March 15. The special loyalty discount card will give shoppers access to special offers and discounts from more than 60 dining and retail outlets across Caloundra until December 1, when it is anticipated the Sunshine Coast Council will have completed stage four of their streetscape works on

our streetscape,” Ms Smith says. CBA vice president Neville Reid says the group’s activities support all businesses in the Caloundra CBD, resulting in a beneficial social and economic outcome for everyone. Mr Reid, who has owned Chaps Menswear on Bulcock Street for 19 years, says he has seen the street evolve in that time, but one thing that has remained consistent is the collaborative mindset of the business owners. “We all try and work together and refer customers to each other’s businesses to keep as many customers as we can in town,” he says. “Everyone has been willing to help in any promotions and the more members we can get, the stronger we will become. “When this is coupled with the completion of the second stage of the council’s streetscape works, we will have a nice, modern and vibrant street.” Business owners who are considering joining the CBA can find out more information on the Caloundra Business Alliance Facebook page. For shoppers keen to find out more about how to get a Shop Caloundra loyalty card, or to see which businesses have special offers linked to the card, visit the Shop Caloundra Facebook page.

CBA secretary Selina Smith says customers will be able to visit the Downtown Caloundra web page and download the application form for the loyalty card, or alternatively, they can visit Nightowl Caloundra, Red Hot Chilli Pepper, Cozie Swimwear Caloundra, Frangipani Cutting Crew or Happy Days Cafe to grab a paper application form to fill in. “This is a great way to reward our loyal customers and to keep things vibrant for retailers during this busy period of change in

BRIGHT LIGHTS CALL CALOUNDRA LOCAL Bullying was never going to stop television journalist Amelia Brace reaching for the stars. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
hannel Seven journalist Amelia Brace is the epitome of a strong, smart and successful career woman. Behind her dazzling smile is a steely determination to fulfil her potential, which surfaced when she was a young girl growing up in Caloundra. A dedicated student, she battled relentless bullying and refused to let it drag her down. “The bullying saw Amelia apply herself even more to being a successful student,” says her mother, Jane Tozer. “It was in high school she developed a passion for modern history and the politics deeply embedded in the 20th century. “Her maternal grandfather was passionate about politics and the rights of the working man, so her early interest was also sparked by him, and further fuelled by her stepfather. She competed in debating competitions at an elite level where she thrived at being able to think on her feet and developed her skills at speaking in front of a crowd.” Ms Brace graduated from the University of the Sunshine Coast with a journalism degree in 2008 and now lives in Los Angeles, working as a US correspondent for Channel Seven. But it was the three and a half years she spent in the Federal Press Gallery in Canberra – a career goal she achieved before the age of 30 – that has had the most impact on her. “That was my dream job,” she tells My Weekly Preview on a recent visit home. “It was amazing. When I first got there I was like a kid in a candy store. “I spent a lot of time working contacts and chasing stories. I ended up with good relationships with senior politicians and ministers. It was interesting to talk to people about how they approach the issues that affect us. I always think of Betty in Blacktown. She’s my audience in my head. How will this affect Betty? Is this something that will make her life better or worse?” Ms Brace says while she loved her work in Canberra, it was also intimidating. “There was always something new happening. I studied a lot of politics and something would be in the Senate and you’d think, oh my God, I have no idea what’s going on at the moment. I was the Sunrise reporter there and was doing crosses right from five in the morning every day. It was up to me to steer the ship, with Mark Riley and Tim Lester.” The offer to work in LA came out of the blue and while she was hesitant to leave Canberra, she realised it was an offer she couldn’t refuse and made the move in April last year. “My goal was always Canberra and I got there,” she says. “It’s weird now because I’ve done it and exceeded it. I don’t know where I’ll move after LA, but I’m happy to stay there for a few years. “It’s such a huge life upheaval. At first I felt like the whole

place needed a facelift, it was a really gritty city. But once you live there, you know all the places to go and the places to be. The grit of it kind of becomes its charm. That’s what makes it so different and cool. “People are really friendly and they’re interested in our politics, given the situation with Donald Trump. Over there, everyone’s a lot more politically minded, interested in talking about universal health care and our education system. “California is very progressive and they definitely didn’t vote for [Trump], but travelling through the south and the rust belt, people who did vote for him and are happy with what he’s doing, they wanted isolationism and America put first. They were being forgotten in those manufacturing towns, and you can see their perspective.” Brace is in a relationship with an Australian cameraman she met in LA but he knows if he makes dinner plans, to expect her to cancel at the last minute if work calls. “On the west coast, a 6pm live cross [to Australia] is 1am
and if you’re on the east coast, it’s 4am. That can get to you, but it’s not every day we’re staying up that late. In one week I can be in New York, then DC, then somewhere in the south and back to LA – you just don’t know where you’ll be.” Ms Brace has covered some challenging stories during her time in the US, including the Las Vegas shooting. “I was in Vegas in the hours after the massacre,” she says. “We were there for days, doing crosses and stories – there were distraught people everywhere. People were walking around looking for loved ones. It’s rewarding being able to tell the stories of people and the victims of that massacre and draw attention to what is such a big issue in terms of gun control.” While she likes to sink her teeth into the tough stories, being based in LA also requires her to cover awards events, which this year have been marked by a major difference. “I covered the Golden Globes and the Oscars,” she says. “The Golden Globes were interesting with the Weinstein scandal, everyone was wearing black and I found a lot more to talk about. With my interest in history and politics, I found it more interesting than a typical awards show where you talk about what they’re wearing. “I live in Hollywood and it’s just got this feeling at the moment like it’s time for change. It’s not just the big stars, it’s really trickling down. “It’s a shame it had to come to this and there had to be this huge movement for people to realise it’s not okay to do things to other people. I think it’s an amazing time to be over there, when it’s so politically charged in so many ways.”

2018 makeup trend: triple pink A pretty new look coming from the runways is triple pink: a trifecta of pink on the eyes, cheeks and lips. Steer clear of this look if you have a ruddy complexion – skin can be dewy or matte. Create a soft flush on the cheek with a blush like Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Blush, which transforms from bright green to a natural flush, $35 from Mecca Maxima. On your lips, try Ciate London Pretty Six Lipstick in Baby Pink, $29 from Mecca Maxima. On your eyes, try a muted rosy tone like Estee Lauder Pure Color Single Shadow in le Eye Shad n Cheeky Pink, $45 from Myer.
FASTEST TAN IN TOWN Summer may be over, but that hasn’t stopped people buying Bondi Sands’ newest self-tanning lotion in their droves. Since its launch on February 1, Bondi Sands 1 Hour Express Tanning Lotion has become the world’s best-selling fake tan, with Priceline having sold more than 50,000 units to tan-obsessed Aussies in the past few weeks. It promises to develop faster than any other product on the market and delivers a light tan in 30 minutes or a dark tan in 60 minutes. The fast-acting foam has a light coconut scent, $24.95 from Priceline.
WHY CAN’T I SLEEP? Jodi Chapman says sleep deprivation not only makes you grumpy, it can also affect the food you crave and your motivation to keep fit.
insomnia, difficulty staying asleep, may also be stress induced, though is more likely to be caused by low hormone levels, digestion or liver problems, in which case improving diet and lifestyle will get you through the night well rested. Resolve stressful issues, get more balance in your life, take a week to sleep for nine hours a night to catch up, and do what you can to rest during the day. Be aware that doing too much of a good thing, such as working too much or exercising too much can create problems also. Sleep should be just as much of a priority as every other aspect of your life, creating the balance in your lifestyle to achieve the emotional balance that you deserve.
leep deprivation can leave you feeling sluggish, fatigued, unhappy, unmotivated, intolerant of others, and struggling with your weight. It is crucial to get quality sleep for a great mood, a positive attitude toward the people around you, to deal with stressful events in a calm and positive way, to remain energetic, full of life, and motivated. When poor sleep habits begin, energy lags, making it difficult to get adequate exercise, and to get through the day, not to mention you will crave carbohydrates to make up for the energy loss, leading to poor dietary choices. Ultimately, staying fit and healthy can then be a challenge. Sleep onset insomnia may be caused by emotional stress or hormonal imbalance, producing high levels of cortisol which is also increased by excess consumption of caffeine. Maintenance

MUSINGS FROM THE SAGE OF OMAHA
arren Buffett’s investment company Berkshire Hathaway has delivered outstanding long-term performance for its shareholders. Over the past 53 years since Buffett and his right-hand man, Charlie Munger, took over, the compound annual growth rate of Berkshire Hathaway shares has been a remarkable 19.1 per cent. Unsurprisingly, the Berkshire Hathaway annual letter – where the ‘Sage of Omaha’ imparts his words of wisdom to eager investors – is pored over by many readers looking for the next clue on how to replicate his success. Below, we highlight what are, in our view, some of the key points: • For new acquisitions, Berkshire assesses all potential deals that come across Buffet’s and Munger’s desks on the assumption that
financing is done with no debt. To quote Buffett: “Our aversion to leverage has dampened our returns over the years. But Charlie and I sleep well”. • On the current exuberance in asset markets: “The less the prudence with which others conduct their affairs, the greater the prudence with which we must conduct our own”. • On the importance of long-term investing: “Charlie and I view the marketable common stocks that Berkshire owns as interests in businesses, not as ticker symbols to be bought or sold based on their ‘chart’ patterns, the ‘target’ prices of analysts or the opinions of media pundits,”; and “Stocks surge and swoon, seemingly untethered to any year-to-year build-up in their underlying value. Over time, however, Ben Graham’s oft-quoted maxim proves true: ‘In the short run, the market is a voting machine; in the long run, however, it becomes a weighing machine’.” I believe we can all learn something from great investors like Warren Buffett.

MAKING TIME FOR FRIENDS
A BAD CASE OF FOOTY FEVER
Sami Muirhead says true friends are always there for us, but it’s important not to neglect them when life gets busy.
Richard O’Leary hopes this could be the year his beloved footy team, Parramatta, breaks its three-decade drought.
ext week I am going away with eight fabulous women. A whole weekend without my babies, without any responsibilities and with the most fun and amazing humans you could ever meet. I am giddy with excitement. I have been re-evaluating my priorities of late. I have not seen these friends in the same room since my wedding eight years ago. I can hardly believe we are going to have 48 hours together to catch up on so many years of lost time. Life got busy and I did what my mother always told me not to do – I stopped nurturing my female friendships. We are all guilty of putting our kids first. And it needs to be that way. But the first things to be sacrificed in our busy worlds are things we do for ourselves (I haven’t been to the gym since forever), and our female friendships. We always just pick up where we left off and my friends are darlings for never judging me when it comes to failing to return a text message or rarely going out. But a wise woman recently told me that love is actually time. You need to water flowers for them to thrive. My friends make me so happy and it is high time I started giving them higher importance. My true friends are happy when I have a win. They are not jealous. They are not bitter. They are kind and not judgemental. They listen. They are loyal.
They make me feel good. They compliment me. They let me know without saying a word that life is not a competition. They are one of the greatest gifts of my life. Of course we all come across women in our lives who do not support us. Toxic friends judge and criticise you and never miss an opportunity to point out your shortcomings. I have a few soul mate friends who are more like family. We have sipped champagne in France. We have seen in the new year in the Red Square in Russia. They have been there for me when I have had broken hearts, broken toes, broken bras and broken dreams. They have been there for me when I have been up all night with a sick baby and they notice if I look a little more tired than usual. They have been there for all the really big times in my life, including celebrating new careers and of course flanking me when I married the love of my life. But they have also been there for all the small things in life when I have had a bad day. It is often those small moments in life, shared over a cup of tea or a glass of wine, that make up the big picture at the end of the day. My friends are one of my most treasured gifts. I am so blessed I have found my tribe. My wish is for every female to find her own tribe to share the journey of life with, because friends make us rich beyond compare.

he footy is back and my health is already suffering, mainly my mental wellbeing, but I’ve also had a serious case of premature exhilaration. But I will start with the good news – the Broncos lost (please send complaints to the Editor). I know, I know, everyone goes for Brisbane, so I’m not making myself any friends, but some of us have to follow the other teams, and don’t worry my comeuppance will come soon enough. But Friday morning was good, I started the footy season in my usual form, a sledge disguised as a question. “Didn’t catch the game last night, who won?” My Broncos-loving work colleague told me in no uncertain terms who had triumphed the night before, and this is one of the great things about this time of the year, the banter and the death threats. To add spice to the season, I also compete in one of the NRL fantasy comps – for those of you who actually have a life I’ll describe it for you. Each coach gets to pick a team from all the players in the comp, but you have to stay within the salary cap. After each game, your team is awarded points for each player and by the end of the round you have a total score, which allows you to boast, or cower in the cupboard, depending on how you went. That’s right, it’s basically a kids’ game
that adults take very seriously. Humblebrag coming up… now last year I finished 191st out of more than a hundred thousand players, so I thought I’d give it a real crack this year and try and win. Unfortunately, after a few games it became very clear that all those hours I’d spent studying the stats and match-ups were more or less wasted, so by Sunday I had turned my back on the fantasy form of the game for the real thing. Now, regular followers of this column would know that I’m a mad Parra fan and after finishing fourth last year, and with the return of the prodigal son Jarryd
“It’s basically a kids’ game that adults take very seriously” Hayne, I was confident we could go even better this year and finally break the threedecade drought that has haunted my twenties, thirties and half my forties. The blue and golds provided the perfect start, going out to a 14-point lead in the first half, but my exuberance proved painfully optimistic, with my team wilting in the Sydney sun to be pummelled by Penrith. They say the Premiership is not won in March, but this is already feeling like a very long season.

WELCOMING THE COMMONWEALTH TO THE SUNSHINE COAST IN 2018 The region will welcome Games teams who will train and stay on the Coast.
ur great climate, welcoming community and premier sports training facilities ensure that the Sunshine Coast is the perfect place to prepare for the Games. The fact that the Sunshine Coast will host the largest number of athletes training in a region prior to the Games reinforces our Coast’s reputation as a destination of choice for high-performance sports training. More than 500 athletes and officials from nine countries will visit the Sunshine Coast and use our region to prepare for Commonwealth glory. Athletes have started arriving and will continue to set up home bases with their
officials and supporters until early April, as part of their structured preparations for the Games. Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio councillor Jason O’Pray says the Sunshine Coast community will welcome the visiting athletes and officials with open arms. “This is a tremendous honour for the Sunshine Coast as we will host the largest number of teams visiting any Australian region outside of the Gold Coast during the Games period,” Cr O’Pray says. “Sporting associations from overseas put a lot of time and resources into choosing the best possible pre-Games location for their athletes, so for our
region to get the nod from a number of teams is a fantastic show of faith. “An intensive amount of ground work over a two-year period has gone into securing the hosting of the teams on the Sunshine Coast. “The comprehensive logistical challenge of meeting the needs of the teams has been ably managed by a small and dedicated team at council who are gearing up for the team’s arrivals.” Secretary general of the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association Tonia Lushington says the Sunshine Coast ticks all the boxes as a pre-Games destination. “Sunshine Coast Council has been very supportive by sourcing a wonderful selection of training facilities, local transportation support and accommodation options,” she says. “The Sunshine Coast is an ideal location for the Manx team to make their final preparations for the Games in 2018.” Team Scotland Chef de Mission Jon Doig OBE says the Sunshine Coast provides a great range of facilities and the ideal environment to ensure athletes will be well prepared for the Commonwealth Games, where the team will aim to have its most successful ever overseas Games. “The key to Scotland’s success has always been in our planning and preparation and the team camp has always played a vital part in developing our strong team ethos and ensuring everyone is in the best possible shape for the Games,” he says. “We have spent considerable time with all 18 sports, identifying the best possible location for their specific needs. “For the vast majority, the facilities and environment on the Sunshine Coast, and at Novotel Twin Waters in particular, will undoubtedly provide the ideal home away from home for the athletes as they adjust to the travel, climate, culture and the unique multi-sport environment of the Commonwealth Games.” Novotel Twin Waters Resort general manager Warwick Kahl says catering for the

needs of some of the world’s best athletes is an exciting prospect. “We’ll be providing athletes from Scotland with everything they need to be mentally and physically ready for the Games and we’ll be looking to create a local village feel for the athletes during their stay with us,” he says. Chef de Mission for Team Saint Helena Nick Stevens says he was immediately attracted to the Sunshine Coast for its first-class facilities and beautiful surrounds. “Most importantly we feel our team will be comfortable in this region and we
“It will be a great opportunity for our community to experience all the excitement of the Games” wish for our team and their families to feel relaxed and welcomed when they are not training,” Mr Stevens says. Sunshine Coast Grammar principal Maria Woods says her school is looking forward to welcoming the Saint Helena swimmers, who will train at their newly opened world-class swimming facilities. “It will also be a great opportunity for our community to engage and experience all of the excitement of the upcoming Commonwealth Games,’’ she says. “Many of our school community would not know about Saint Helena and we’re certainly looking forward to learning more about this country and their people.”
FAST FACTS Nine countries are training on the Sunshine Coast There are more than 500 visiting athletes, coaches and officials They will be training in 16 Commonwealth sports 17 community and private sporting venues will be used 18 schools are also involved 10 different sports will be promoted through five public events There will be an estimated economic benefit of $1.6 million to the region There are nearly 5000 bed nights from visiting teams alone 25 community groups will benefit from promotional opportunities.

MEET OUR LOCAL SUPPORTERS
Sixteen Sunshine Coast sporting and community venues will open their doors to visiting Commonwealth Games athletes for training. Many of these sporting venues and associations are actively maximising this opportunity to profile their clubs and venue and grow membership and overall interest in their sport. myweeklypreview.com.au
These venues are also leveraging the opportunities of having visiting international athletes train with local talent to inspire future generations of sports stars. Sunshine Coast Hockey Association regional coaching and development director Nathaniel Milevskiy says the local hockey community is excited to be welcoming Team Scotland. “Team Scotland training at our facilities is a great coup for our association,” Mr Milevskiy says. “Our goal is to present the Sunshine Coast Hockey Association to our local community, showcasing our facility and what we have to offer. “More importantly, through the team training here, we show we are open to the world and ready for more teams to visit from around the globe.
“Many of our young talented players are also excited about the unique opportunity to train alongside these elite athletes.” Sunshine Coast Stadium manager Simon Ball says the venue looks forward to hosting the Australian women’s national rugby sevens team, who are the current Olympic champions, at the Sunshine Coast’s premier sporting venue. “The Sunshine Coast Stadium is fast developing the reputation as the place to train and prepare for national and international fixtures,” he says. “Hosting the Australian women rugby sevens provides another great opportunity to showcase our facilities and ability to host high-calibre teams.” A number of the venues will also be hosting exhibition matches with the visiting teams.
VENUES TO HOST TRAINING INCLUDE: • Ballinger Park Hockey Centre, Buderim • Chancellor State College • Maroochydore Basketball Stadium • Club Kawana Bowls • Coolum Beach Bowls Club • Maroochy Beach Gymnastics Club • Nambour Badminton Centre • Nambour Weightlifting Club • North Arm Shooting Range • Shamrock Boxing Club, Maroochydore • Sunshine Coast Badminton Centre, Nambour • Sunshine Coast Grammar School • Sunshine Coast Rec Centre • Sunshine Coast Stadium • University of the Sunshine Coast • Mooloolaba Beach Volleyball Court.

DON’T MISS THE QUEEN’S BATON RELAY
arch 27, 2018 will go down as a historic date in Sunshine Coast history as the Queen’s Baton Relay passes through
the region. Residents and visitors are being encouraged to get in on the action and show support for the 25 local baton bearers who have been selected to carry the baton in Caloundra. This Games tradition celebrates the Commonwealth’s diversity, inspires community pride and excites people about the world-class festival of sports and culture that is soon to arrive. The relay started in Australia on December 25, 2017 and the baton will travel 40,000 kilometres, visiting all states and territories, before arriving on the Gold Coast for the opening ceremony on April 4. The Caloundra leg of the relay will start at Queen Street at 9.54am. During the relay, there will be a community celebration at Kings Beach Amphitheatre from 9.15am to 11am, where the public can come together and share the spirit of the relay and the
Games. The baton is expected to arrive at 10.10am. There will be children’s activities, performances by the Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe and the national anthem will be performed by Cassi Hilbers. There will also be a collaboration between local artist Mason Hope and national icon Tjupurru. Participants can also write messages and well wishes to their favourite athletes on a special postcard, watch a gymnastics display and try Little Athletics. Mayor Mark Jamieson says council is delighted that Caloundra will be hosting the GC2018 Queen’s Baton Relay. “Hosting the Queen’s Baton Relay is not only an exciting opportunity for us, it’s a way to highlight and promote the beauty of Caloundra to people across Australia and the world who have been following the extraordinary journey of the Queen’s Baton,” he says. “It’s also a wonderful way to celebrate the people that make our community great.” Check sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au for up-to-date information including road closures, bus parking and contact details.
EVENT ROAD CLOSURES This is a major event and road closures will be in place during the relay with delays expected across the area and surrounding streets. Here is how you can access the area: For access to attend the community celebration at Kings Beach Amphitheatre, The Esplanade from Shelley Beach to the Caloundra Surf Club (including the Kings Beach car park) will be open. If you are travelling from Bulcock Beach, you will be able to gain access from Ormonde Terrace until about 10am. If you want a vantage point along Ormonde Terrace, Warne Terrace or The Esplanade Caloundra, most side streets will be open so you can park and walk to your destination. Access to Stockland Caloundra shopping centre will be available from First Avenue or Oval Avenue. If you are heading to Golden Beach, the best access will be from Baldwin Street. On-street parking restrictions will apply to areas along the relay route and around Kings Beach Amphitheatre. For full road closure details visit council’s website. Visit gc2018.com/qbr to find
the relay map and see when and where bearers will be carrying the baton. 34 My Weekly Preview | March 16, 2018
elcoming the Commonwealth project is part of a strategy from the Sunshine Coast Council and key partners, including the University of Sunshine Coast, to position the region as a destination of choice for high performance sports training. The region has built a solid reputation as one of the country’s most desirable tourism and major events regions. Now, it is increasingly recognised as one of Australia’s premier sports training destinations and host to major and international sporting events and teams. From NRL and rugby trials, to AFL pre-season camps, the Coast has welcomed numerous high profile athletes in recent times. And, with national or international standard training facilities for 39 sports on the Sunshine Coast, the region offers excellent training venues for a wide range of sports disciplines. The region’s appeal as a leading sports destination is further strengthened by USC’s Sports Science division, which is the only university accredited with the Australian Institute of Sport. USC Sport manager Nathan Gordon says the collaboration between USC and the Sunshine Coast Council is proving valuable in promoting the region as a sports training destination. “The Sunshine Coast is really building a reputation as a place of choice for high performance training,” he says. “What’s attractive to many of these visiting teams is the convenience of having many facilities in one location and access to some leading professionals in the sports training industry. “We’ve got a great climate, great facilitates and more importantly a team of people who care about making great spaces and a great environment for these high performing teams.” In addition to welcoming high performance athletes to the region, the Coast is producing its own talent. At least 17 USC-based athletes have been selected to
compete at the upcoming Commonwealth Games across the categories of netball, cycling and swimming. Nine USC Spartans and three of the coaching staff have been selected among the cohort. In addition, three Australian Cycling Academy (ACA) Sunshine Coast riders were selected. ACA is a high-performance training academy for up and coming elite cyclists. It is backed by the council and USC. Track specialists Leigh Howard, Sam Welsford and Kelland O’Brien will all compete at the Games as part of the Australian track cycling team. All three are current or former world champions, but it is the first Commonwealth Games selection for the trio. “To have three riders selected and with the Games so close to the team’s University of the Sunshine Coast base, this is really exciting news for us, especially in our first year,” Mr Howard says. “Having such a big competition in your home country is a huge advantage but having the team base just up the road gives us an extra advantage.” Mr Welsford is favoured to medal in the individual pursuit, after becoming national champion in the event last month, beating current world champion Jordan Kirby on the Brisbane track in the final. Meanwhile, 19-year-old O’Brien, is one of the younger members of the Australian cycling contingent and is aiming for a team pursuit berth. He says 2017 was a big year. “I moved up into the elite ranks and went to the senior world champs, and then coming home world champion (in the team pursuit) was unbelievable. It has always been my dream to represent my country at this level, so when we get there I’m expecting a few chills down my spine, but for now it’s just head down so we get there in the right shape to show the world what we can do. “A home Games is something special, and I’m really blown away by the opportunity to get there, but especially being so close to the ACA and USC, it’s going to be a big advantage for us to have a home crowd.” myweeklypreview.com.au

Training alongside the All Blacks will be the highly successful Black Ferns, who will be competing in the first ever women’s competition at the Games. The teams comprise a total of 40 athletes and support people. New Zealand’s attendance at the Commonwealth Games will be their 21st time competing in the event since their first appearance in Canada in 1930. New Zealand’s most successful Games were in Auckland in 1990, when they won 58 medals overall, including 17 gold and 14 silver.

ISLE OF MAN Isle of Man is bringing 42 athletes and support people to the Sunshine between March 21 and 25. Athletes will be training for sports including shooting, athletics, badminton, triathlon, swimming and lawn bowls. Isle of Man’s first Commonwealth Games were the Cardiff Games in 1958, and they have competed in every Games since. Isle of Man’s strongest event is cycling – the country has won numerous medals in the event, including gold in the men’s scratch race in the Melbourne Games in 2006.
AUSTRALIA The Diamonds Commonwealth Games netball team will polish their preparation on the Sunshine Coast this March for the 2018 Games. Following a one-night stay in the athlete’s village on the Gold Coast, the team of 12 will travel to Mooloolaba on Wednesday, March 28. The Diamonds will return to the village on April 1 to join the wider Australian Commonwealth Games team. It will not be the first time the Diamonds have prepared on the Sunshine Coast after holding a camp in Mooloolaba before the Netball Quad Series in August 2017. The current Olympic champions, the Australian women’s rugby sevens, will also be training in our region. Australia is one of six teams to have competed in every Commonwealth Games since they began and has won a total of 852 gold medals since. Australia has also hosted four previous Games, including Sydney in 1938, Perth in 1962, Brisbane in 1982 and Melbourne in 2006, making the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games the fifth Australian-based event.
ST HELENA ENGLAND Twelve athletes from England’s triathlon team will be pounding the Sunshine Coast pavements and swimming in our crystal waters in preparation for the Games. The athletes will be visiting the Sunshine Coast on March 20 and 27, training in one of Australia’s most well-known triathlon regions. England first participated in the Commonwealth Games in Ontario, Canada in 1930, and have since hosted games in London in 1934 and Manchester in 2002. Their most successful Commonwealth Games was in Glasgow, Scotland, in which the 410-strong team brought home 58 gold medals.
Saint Helena is an island of only 4534 people, situated around 3300 kilometres from South Africa. It is one of the most isolated teams competing in the Commonwealth Games. This year Saint Helena will fly directly from its new airport to Australia, as until 2016 the only way you could access the island was by ship. Saint Helena will compete in their sixth Commonwealth Games and will be training at Sunshine Coast Grammar School between March 20 and 29, preparing for swimming events. They will also be represented in swimming, shooting, badminton and athletics.
SCOTLAND WALES NIUE Niue will be bringing 50 athletes and support people to the Sunshine Coast. Athletes will be training in the sports of lawn bowls, athletics, weightlifting and netball. Niue is a small island located between Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands and has not yet won a medal in the Commonwealth Games. myweeklypreview.com.au
Almost 60 athletes, officials and supporters from the Welsh athletics and swimming teams will call the Sunshine Coast home for an extended period of time ahead of the Games. Members from Wales will train at the USC sporting facilities from March 18 to April 2. Wales is one of only six teams to have competed in every Commonwealth Games since its inception in 1930. The 2014 Commonwealth Games, in Glasgow, marked their largest medal count – the team took home 36 medals.
The largest contingent of athletes and officials visiting the Sunshine Coast will be from Scotland. From March 13 to April 3, 215 team members training in 13 different sports will be calling the Sunshine Coast home. Scotland is one of only six countries to have competed in every single Commonwealth Games since its inception in 1930. Their most successful Commonwealth Games was in Glasgow in 2014 in which the team won 53 medals, including 19 gold. All information is correct as at time of printing.

looked, even in a funny way, solidly at the culture, so I thought this would be a bit of fun as well as an opportunity to celebrate the culture,” he says. “It was always designed to be a fun little book, that gives you a laugh. So far, everyone who’s seen it has cracked up. So far, mission accomplished.” Mr Fenech says he feels like his work has always been about uncovering the “real Australia”. “There is a lot of prejudice against the word bogan, but in my extensive travels around the country doing live comedy, it is safe to say bogans are the majority, they are not the minority,” he says. “I honestly love entertaining people. The world needs more laughter and I seem to have an unlimited energy to make people laugh.” Although he won’t make it to the Sunshine Coast for his Bogan Bible national comedy tour this year, Mr Fenech appeared at the Brisbane Comedy Festival on March 8.

ove your local bogan, they’re the true Aussie of the new millennium,” Pauly Fenech declares. With a career that has fully embraced the unique Australian phenomenon that is the bogan, the filmmaker, actor, producer and comedian best known for his roles in Fat Pizza, Housos and Swift and Shift Couriers has become somewhat of an expert. “There’s a bit of bogan in all of us,” Mr Fenech tells My Weekly Preview. “I have become somewhat of a ‘boganologist’ and I have seen every shade of bogan from Tasmania to Cape York and the thing I love the most about them is that they are very funny and they are complete individuals who have no qualms with throwing political correctness to the wind.” Although he has been a regular on television screens and on stages since 1998, Mr Fenech only recently added author to his list of job titles, with the release of The Bogan Bible. The small picture book is a comedic examination of the bogan, who Mr Fenech describes as “the new Aussie battler”. “There was nothing out there that

Pente Poets have launched a poetry trail throughout the Sunshine Coast hinterland, which provides a unique way to explore and visit the region. Creative sculptures accompanied by original poetry from locally renowned artists are dotted along trails in Maleny, Montville and Kenilworth. Visitors have the opportunity to download an app on their devices and listen to the poems read aloud by the poets at Maleny and Montville. The poetry trail was completed in four stages over three years through a number of
funding grants, including the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast community grants program. Pente Poets’ Judith Bandidt says the group was formed in 2006. “On a driving tour of New Zealand with my husband, we found a path with a signpost and intrigued, we followed it which led us to large boulders featuring poetry and other short verse,” she says. “I thought it would be wonderful to have that on the Sunshine Coast, and as they say, the rest is history.” Visit pentepoets.com.

REAL BEAUTY ON DISPLAY IN EXHIBITION
Natasha Hammond features in the series Megan Gill has set out on a mission to get as many women as possible to exist in photos and to see themselves in a new light. The seasoned photographer has spent three months working on a portrait project with Sunshine Coast women called 21 Days of Real Beauty. Around 30 women, who range from property developers to radio announcers, entrepreneurs and social media personalities, applied to be photographed for the project. Ms Gill says she wants to give everyday women their “covergirl moment” and help them to see themselves through someone else’s eyes. “Women are constantly being told they are not thin enough, fresh enough or young enough, so I wanted to give everyday women a chance to feel like they are enough,” she says. “I am very passionate about women existing in portraits and the power of the printed image. We live in such a digital age, the printed photograph still has such a visceral impact on our senses.” The photographs will feature in an exhibition at the Pacific Landrover Showroom in Maroochydore on March 21 at 6pm. Tickets are $10 and are available at eventbrite.com.au. Search for ‘21 Days of Real Beauty a Photographic Exhibition’. – Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane

wo of Australia’s top bowlers gearing up for competition at the Commonwealth Games in April have tried their hand against some stiff competition from homeowners at the Halcyon Lakeside over 50s community in Bli Bli. Brett Wilkie and Aron Sherriff are part of the 17-member Commonwealth Games lawn bowls team. They descended on Halcyon Lakeside’s newly installed bowls greens ahead of the Games to give homeowners an inside view of their winning style at Halcyon Lakeside’s open day on March 3. The Australian representatives played two games against Halcyon Lakeside homeowners during the open day, proving too good for the local competition. Mr Wilkie debuted as a national representative in 2009 and in 2016 helped Australia win its first men’s pairs world title in almost four decades. Mr Sherriff is one of Australia’s most capped male lawn bowls representatives.
The bowlers are looking forward to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, with the team keen to replicate the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games performance, where they recorded their best campaign of any Games. Halcyon Lakeside played host to the team members as they spent the day mixing with homeowners on the bowls greens at the community’s new five-star recreation club. “It was a special experience for bowls enthusiasts and the entire community,” Halcyon Lakeside project director Chris Carley says. “We’d like to think we got a small taste of the Commonwealth Games at Bli Bli.” Mr Sherriff says he and Mr Wilkie enjoyed testing the bowling green at Halcyon. “It was great to meet the homeowners of Halcyon Lakeside at their new bowling facility, and it was fantastic to receive so many well wishes for the upcoming Commonwealth Games,” Mr Sherriff says.

When it comes to a close relationship or a financial matter, all is not as it seems. Life isn’t just about what you can see, study, discuss and dissect. There are many things that are hidden from the eye (or just plain mysterious).
If you expect other people to be cooperative then you’ll be disappointed when they unsettle you, especially later in the week. So make sure you choose your words wisely, otherwise you’ll just upset loved ones or colleagues.
As we celebrate the Equinox on Wednesday strive to bring more balance and harmony into your busy Scorpio world. Then retrograde Mercury confuses communication (especially with colleagues) from Friday onwards.

With the Sun shifting into your entertainment zone, curiosity and enthusiasm are high. It’s also Equinox week so stop rushing and try not to overdo things! Smart Sagittarians will calm down and recalibrate to a steadier and more sustainable pace.
It’s Equinox week, so do your best to achieve more balance in your busy life. And is your home a peaceful haven? With Mercury reversing through your domestic zone (from Friday until April 15) it’s time to clean and de-clutter your living space.
This week’s stars rev up your transport zone, so you’ve got a need for speed (which makes you more accident-prone). Slow down Aquarius! Less haste and more concentration will ensure you arrive at your various destinations safe and sound.
The Equinox falls on Wednesday, which favours meditation (or contemplation) as you aim for more equilibrium and perspective at Casa Pisces. Then Mercury (planet of communication and commerce) reverses through your money zone.

HEALTH PRECINCT WALKABLE CITY IN HIGH DEMAND Southbank at Oceanside was launched last week to great fanfare, the latest addition to the Coast’s health precinct. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
hen speaking to My Weekly Preview earlier this month, analyst and social commentator Mark McCrindle predicted people of all ages, from first home buyers through to baby boomers downsizing, buying property on the Sunshine Coast would seek out “walkable cities” in which to base themselves. If the success of the Sunshine Coast Health Precinct and its surrounding property are anything to go by, Mr McCrindle is right on the money. The precinct has been dubbed “hot property” and the “healthiest investment” in the region by local industry experts and the numbers do not lie. The RGD Group launched Southbank, its fifth apartment development in the health precinct, last week to great fanfare. Its previous four projects completely sold out prior to completion. RGD Group managing director Ron Grabbe says the North Shore, Salt, Waterline and Aquarius apartment buildings, which are all located in Oceanside Kawana within walking distance of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, have a combined value of $120 million and all 240 waterfront
“What we are seeing is the number of local investors and end occupiers starting to creep up and that shows not only confidence in the area, but also confidence in our brand, which has been in the industry for 35 years. “We have a strong vision for this area, we live here and we want to see it thrive.” Sales and marketing manager Gail Hunter says with vacancy rates on the Sunshine Coast tightening, the region is experiencing
apartments were sold in the past 24 months. Southbank is located on the corner of Lake Kawana Boulevard and Mantra Esplanade in Birtinya and comprises 86 apartments with one, two and threebedroom configurations, as well as four luxury sky homes, making it the largest RGD Project in Oceanside. Mr Grabbe says the development is in the heart of what will become one of the most modern areas in the region, that offers a “walkable lifestyle”, with residents living within strolling distance of world-class
medical facilities, cafes and restaurants, public transport, waterfront pathways, bike paths and the future Brisbane South Bankstyle park and new town centre, which will be constructed by Stockland “When you drive or walk around the health precinct, it feels like you are living in a city,” Mr Grabbe says. “The new CBD in Maroochydore will be the same, but that is still years away. Bokarina is happening right now, and locals are only just starting to understand the value of the product here.
“We have a strong vision for this area, we live here and want to see it thrive” one of the fastest population growth rates in Australia. “With significant infrastructure projects just completed or underway nearby, Southbank at Oceanside is ideally positioned to realise great returns and lifestyle benefits for both investors and owner-occupiers. A large percentage of the tenants in our projects continued over >

PROPERTY < from previous page work in the hospitals,” she says. There is no doubt the $2-billion investment in the Sunshine Coast University Hospital was the catalyst for this dramatic change, which Mayor Mark Jamieson says has become a showcase for what the future of the region looks like. “This is a very popular area and we have been challenged by the anticipated population growth of another 200,000 people and we are also challenged by affordability and creating the careers of the future,” he says.
“One in five Sunshine Coast families are reliant on the development and construction sectors to put food on their tables every night, so projects like [Southbank] are vital to the region. “I’d like to congratulate the RGD Group for having the tenacity and determination to carry on when others got the wobbles and to see how this precinct is developing is refreshing for us all.” Stockland senior development manager Mark McMahon says the current development surrounding the Sunshine Coast Health Precinct is unlike anything the master developer has ever seen before.
Stockland has been a major player in the development of the health precinct and is currently working on Birtinya Island, Bokarina Beach and the Birtinya Stockland Town Centre. “The Health Precinct is unique in the country and it’s not often you get to build and design a greenfield hospital and design and build everything around it. It’s something that hasn’t been done before,” he says. “Stockland is so confident in this area that we are investing in more than just land, with the Birtinya Retirement village and starting construction of the Bokarina Shopping Centre, which is so desperately needed. We
will also be looking at investing in apartments at Bokarina Beach. “We have made unbelievable investment here and it shows our confidence. It is unreal to think that just four years ago, this place was just a paddock.” Construction on the shopping centre is already underway, with major anchors Coles and Aldi confirmed. Mr McMahon says while he cannot give too much away at this early stage, he can confirm the centre will be “unlike Stockland has ever done before in a shopping centre,” describing it as having a “Sunshine Coast Hamptons” feel.

with MWP’s man in the water
Well it has all been about big swell, big winds and big low pressure systems offshore, which is not unusual for this time of year. And, as predicted, it’s delivered some quality waves. This is however a time to know your limitations. Big swells and shifting waters can certainly look like an inviting challenge, however they can be your undoing if you are not equipped or experienced to handle it. Stay safe out there. Look out for each other.
