Of the billions of coconuts harvested each year for the coconut oil, water and flesh industries, 99 per cent of their shells are discarded and burned as waste. Coconut Bowls upcycles these shells into beautiful eco-friendly bowls. With billions of plastic containers also ending up as landfill every year, it’s important that society begins to favour plant-based alternatives. We are giving away a pack containing two candles, four original bowls, four natural bowls, four spoons, four forks and one vegan bowl cookbook bundle. It’s valued at $230.

FROM THE EDITOR

F

or the first time in the history of Anzac Day, women will be given the honour of leading marches around the country on April 25. The monumental decision comes off the back of the By the Left campaign, which was created by the Women Veterans Network Australia. It aims to raise awareness of the changing face of the Australian Defence Force. By the Left – which references the side military medals are worn by servicemen and women – is a reminder that the definition of ‘military veteran’ also encompasses the younger men and women who have served in operations since East Timor. These men and women deserve our respect, thanks and support. But, like with most things, this movement will work at its best when balance is applied. It’s important that it doesn’t overshadow the commitment and loyalty shown to our country by the ageing veterans who secured freedom for all. What these diggers did for our country should never been forgotten. This is why we chose to speak with three veterans for this week’s cover story – to capture a true interpretation of who our military people are. We are humbled that they opted to share their experiences and story with us. To all men and women who have fought or represented our country on a military level, thank you. Until next week, take care.

Best day in your life and why? My 40th birthday springs to mind. I spent time on the water, with my husband and best friend exploring the Big Island in Hawaii, playing in the ocean then home to a cooked meal, music, games and lots of easy laughter. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? So many! Getting accepted into Stanford, winning the Business Woman of the Year award, meeting Ben, my daughter falling pregnant. I am excited for the future of possibility and change this new little lady will bring to our lives.

“Surround yourself with doers, thinkers, movers, believers and artists”

What are you watching right now, would you recommend it, and why? I love The Graham Norton Show because it is fun and light, but I don’t really spend much time watching TV.

Kaitlyn Akers

Also the complex problem of our reliance on cars. I don’t have the answer but it is possibly in the public transport system.

Best advice you’ve been given? Just ask. You never know what the answer will be and usually it’s yes. Other’s perception is their reality – it helps so much in business to bring understanding before trying to get things done. Oh, and salt and lemon juice get rust stains out of fabric and vintage baby clothes. Thanks Nanny. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Mudjimba Island. It is a place of quiet and power all at once. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? The attitude that growth or change is inherently bad before information is explored. We have so much abundance to share and we all benefit.

Your greatest regret? I don’t really do regrets, only lessons and sometimes I have to keep learning them until I get them. You are happiest when? Surrounded by friends, outside doing things together.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? You are okay and it’s all going to be okay. Surround yourself with doers, thinkers, movers, believers and artists as they will lift you up and you will do the same for them. Go to every live music gig you can. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Michael Parkinson, Amelia Earhart and Billy Connolly. It would be full of interesting stories and belly laughs. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee for meetings, tea at home and socially. NRL or AFL? Union, but the Cowboys when watching NRL, because Dad was a Broncos man and it was fun to wind him up.

Rosemary is the emblem of fidelity and remembrance in literature and folklore. Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on Anzac Day. It has a particular significance for Australians, as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula.

COVER STORY

THE CHANGING FACE OF OUR VETERANS

Anzac Day will look a little different this year, with the By the Left movement shining a light on the service of women and young veterans, who don’t always get the respect and recognition they deserve. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“I’m very proud of what I’ve earnt and what I’ve done, and I wouldn’t let anyone demean that at all” Cathy Stamp

or the first time in history, women will be leading the Caloundra Anzac Day march on April 25 and Caloundra RSL sub branch vice president Cathy Stamp is looking forward to the momentous occasion. It is a big step towards raising community awareness that the face of our veterans is changing. Not only does it include the heroic diggers of the World Wars and Vietnam, but also the men and women who have served in the many operations since East Timor. Mrs Stamp is one of the thousands of ex-servicewomen around the country who have been challenged about wearing their husbands’, fathers’ or grandfathers’ medals on their left when they attend commemorative events. In response to this, the Women Veterans Network Australia created the By the Left movement, which has taken the country by storm and will see women leading marches around Australia to raise awareness of their contribution to the Australian Defence Force. Mrs Stamp says By the Left is a play on words, as medals awarded for service are worn by recipients on the left and ‘by the left’ is also a marching command. The 54-year-old Kings Beach resident joined the Royal Australian Air Force in September 1983 at the age of 19 as a stenographer and served for 28 years until being discharged in July 2011. During that time, she was deployed to

12 My Weekly Preview | April 20, 2018

12.indd 1

Malaysia for three years and joined operational deployments to the Middle East and twice to East Timor, in the process moving up the ranks from enlisted person to commissioned officer. She has earned the Australian active service medal, clasps for Iraq, East Timor and Middle East Area of Operations, an Operation Slipper campaign medal for the Middle East, an Interfet medal from East Timor, the Defence Force Service medal for four years of service and another for 15 years of service. These medals have taken pride of place over Mrs Stamp’s heart for many a commemorative service in the past, but she says just about every Anzac Day she is approached by someone who congratulates her for wearing a relative’s medals and asks her why they are on the wrong side. “I have to correct them and say, ‘No, they’re mine’. The first couple of times it’s a bit funny, but there really needs to be great education in the community,” she says. “I have never let that stop me from marching. I’m very proud of what I’ve earnt and what I’ve done, and I wouldn’t let anyone demean that at all. I turn around and confront them and let them know I put in a lot of hard work to be awarded these medals.” Mrs Stamp, who was nominated the first female vice president at the Caloundra RSL sub branch, says with the number of military operations happening after East Timor, there are so many younger ex-servicemen and

women who have earnt seven or eight medals and are also being misunderstood. By the Left campaign organiser Kellie Dadds says many female veterans no longer march on Anzac Day. “Female veterans do not want to be different, we want to be viewed the same – as veterans. But to achieve this, we must first be seen,” she says.

Marty Sim According to the Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), 12,411 women have enlisted into the permanent Australian Defence Force (ADF) from January 1, 2003 to April 4, 2018. Within those 15 years, a total of 60,701 personnel have joined the permanent ADF who were 25 years or under at the time of their enlistment. “Respecting the service and sacrifice of

those who have served Australia and its allies is very important,” a DVA spokesperson says. “One of DVA’s key roles is acknowledging the service and sacrifice of all those who have served Australia, including female veterans. “Through a range of interviews, workshops and correspondence facilitated by DVA, female veterans have shared stories of being asked to move their medals or being challenged on their defence service by members of the public. “The level of recognition and respect that female veterans receive from the broader Australian community, including the issue of being asked to move medals, was raised at the DVA 2016 Female Veterans and Families Forum and exploring ways to grow the Australian Community’s respect for female veterans was a key focus of the DVA 2017 Female Veterans Policy Forum. “DVA is committed to continuing its work with female veterans to explore new policy initiatives and identify potential new service arrangements to support all veterans and their families.” By the Left has also reached out to include young veterans and those from culturally diverse backgrounds. Bells Reach resident Marty Sim is 32 years old and received a four-year service medal as a rifleman from 2010 until he was medically discharged during pre-deployment training. After gaining qualification as a marine technician, Mr Sim enlisted in the army at the myweeklypreview.com.au

age of 24 and went through the intense training in preparation for deployment before left knee and lower back injuries saw his career come to an abrupt end. “I loved it. I loved being in defence, the challenge and wanting to feel part of something bigger,” he says. “I went through IETs, the initial training as a rifleman in 3RAR and my discharge left me feeling worthless and useless. To come from such a highly demanding job, training twice a day, learning tactics and all that sort of stuff, to not being able to work at all with my injuries, brought on major depression as it was impossible for me to get back to work.” Mr Sim says it wasn’t until he moved to the Sunshine Coast and found Young Veterans that he began to turn a corner, with the help of his devoted family. “My saviour was the gym – it helped me to realise that I can get back to where I was, and I was not stuck as this broken soldier.” Despite working in the army for four years, Mr Sim says he feels a stigma at wearing his service medal. “One of my mates was wearing his medals from Afghanistan and he was approached to be told they were on the wrong side and when my mate corrected him and said they were his medals and he had deployed, the guy shrugged his shoulders and walked off. It really blew him away,” he says. “For me personally, it’s taken me a while to go to an Anzac Day parade. I felt like I didn’t deserve it because I didn’t deploy. It has taken me a while to get back to a good place where I can actually go. A lot of people feel daunted by wearing the four-year gong when there are other soldiers with their chests full of medals. “I’ve worn it once in Townsville with my ex-boss and he served in Afghanistan. I was around a bigger crowd of defence people who knew me and said ‘You earnt it, you did the work, wear it and wear it with pride’.” Mr Sim, who volunteers for Resolve Fitness and Young Veterans Sunshine Coast, revels in working with other ex-servicemen and women to get their fitness back on track and he plans to wear his medal for just the second time this Anzac Day.

This year will mark the 72nd Anzac Day since Little Mountain veteran Frank Boyce’s military service came to an end. The 95-year-old enlisted as a 16-year-old in March 1942 in the AIF (First Australian Imperial Force), moved on to the 2/3 antitank unit and volunteered to join the 1st Australian Parachute Battalion. He was a member of the troupe that became known as the ‘Guards of Singapore’ after they deployed to Changi to free the prisoners of war, only to arrive after the atomic bomb was dropped in Japan and the war came to an end. In his 1568 days of service, Mr Boyce spent 1209 days training and serving in Australia and a further 345 abroad in the Middle East and Singapore. He was deployed to the Middle East aboard the HMS Devonshire, on which his experience in weights and measures saw him become the onboard postman. Arriving in Port Tewfik, the troops moved into Cairo: “We caught a glimpse of the pyramids as we drove by. At the camp at El Alamein, I came down with yellow jaundice, meaning I couldn’t move on to Jerusalem to join a Kiwi contingent and the light army to move on to Italy,” he says. Instead, he retuned home on board the Isle de France to Sydney and boarded a train

for the Atherton Tablelands to begin jungle warfare training. “With the withdrawal of the ninth division from the Middle East and training for jungle warfare on the Tablelands, it was decided that the 2/3rd antitank regiment be reduced from four batteries to three,” he says. “Our battery got the chop, and we were moved to York Force (in Cape York) to build an antitank course. That’s when I volunteered for the Parachute Battalion.” It was 1944 and Mr Boyce was 21 years old when he volunteered, with the hope he might rescue his cousin, Frank Baldry, who was a prisoner of war in Singapore. Battalion members were required to have seven jumps before they were awarded their wings and Mr Boyce admits he was “never anything but scared” during those jumps. When the jumps were completed, Mr Boyce and the team were awarded their wings and shifted to a camp at Scheyville in New South Wales to join the First Australian Parachute Brigade Proper. “We moved up to Mareeba on the Atherton Tablelands where we began training once again. As there were limited planes available, we had to jump out of moving trucks to do our forward rolls and things. “Then the bomb was dropped on August 5th and peace declared soon after on August 15th. One company of volunteers was picked out and their destination was Singapore, and we left on August 24 from the Tablelands. “There were no doors on the plane and we had to fly high over the land because at that stage, the Japanese and their anti-aircraft guns might not have heard of the ceasefire and we had a freezing trip. “We finally arrived at Singapore Kallang Airport at 1630 hours on a Sunday to sleep under the planes and meet a few Aussie POWs, who devoured all our rations. I was informed that my cousin had been airlifted back two days ago. “We were sorry and shocked at the state of the prisoners, and I still think of it to this day.” Mr Boyce went on to become a member of the Guard of Honour for the Ceremonial Surrender of Singapore on September 15.

REVIEW

DESALINATION PLANT BACK ON THE AGENDA

$60,000

A desalination plant could be considered by Seqwater as a way of securing long-term water security for the Sunshine Coast. This is just one of the options being investigated by the water body while it looks at new bulk water sources that will cope with a projected population increase to 500,000 in 2041. Although the best wet season in years has lifted southeast Queensland’s combined dam levels to 84 per cent, the highest since July 2016, Seqwater acting chief Dan Spiller says Sunshine Coast dams are relatively small and can be drawn down quickly. Other possibilities considered include a water recycling plant or increasing the capacity of existing water treatment plants, raising the level of Borumba Dam or a weir on the Mary River, as well as large-scale stormwater harvesting.

The inaugural Vantage Homes Trek for Autism saw 250 people walk 25 kilometres from Coolum to Mooloolaba Spit along some of the Sunshine Coast’s most scenic beaches and coastal pathways to raise awareness of autism. Their efforts have seen more than $60,000 raised for Steps Autism Treehouse to provide support and services to local families. Last year, Autism Treehouse merged with Steps Group Australia and all funds from the trek will go to the charity, which assists people with a disability to become active members of society.

The Sunshine Coast has appeared on the Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) Q2 2018 RLB Crane Index for the first time. RLB research and development director Stephen Ballesty says the index has painted a picture of a relatively stable construction industry. “For the first time it also includes cranes on the Sunshine Coast in southeast Queensland. Although we see a decrease of only one crane across Australia over the past six months, by excluding the Sunshine Coast’s 10 cranes, the like for like comparison is a fall of 11 cranes across the country, or 1.5 per cent,” he says. The listing recognises the high level of infrastructure investment on the Coast, including construction of the region’s new CBD.

TRAVEL

Noosa National Park

FROM NOOSA TO PARADISE AND BEYOND Who says you need to travel abroad to enjoy a getaway? Hit the road and experience some beauty closer to home. WORDS: Shae McDonald, AAP.

N

oosa needs no introduction. For the past 50 years, its mix of secluded beaches, boutique shops and upscale restaurants have wooed both domestic and international visitors. The national park trail is the most walked in Australia, however strict building regulations mean much of the natural beauty of the area has been retained. But there is much more to the region than Hastings Street and its immediate surrounds. Trek a little further north and you’ll discover an untouched paradise just waiting to be explored. The Great Beach Drive is one of the world’s longest beach roads, stretching 380

kilometres from Noosa over to Fraser Island and across to Hervey Bay. There’s no feeling quite like driving on the sand with nothing but the whole beach ahead of you. While Teewah Beach – the strip of road from Noosa North Shore to Double Island Point – fills with campers on weekends and school holidays, during the week it’s almost empty. This is when it’s at its best. But it’s not just the beach on show in this part of the world. The entertaining guys at Great Beach Drive 4WD Tours offer day trips from the Sunshine Coast up to Rainbow Beach. They take a drive through the nearby rainforest and up to Double Island Point lookout, where whales, dolphins and sharks

can be spotted throughout the year. Then it’s time to head to the little town of Rainbow Beach. Despite being founded more than 50 years ago and having Aussie heartthrob Chris Hemsworth as one of its fans, the population remains at just 1000. I’m told the primary reason for that is because it’s landlocked by national park, which only adds to its charm. Tourism reigns supreme here, with visitors flocking to see the famous coloured sands. Stretching for several hundred metres, the sand-formed cliffs are made up of deep reds, yellows and browns, providing a stark contrast to the blue ocean water. There’s nothing quite like it. There is also another, lesser-known attraction, worth visiting on a trip to Rainbow Beach. JD runs the Rainbow Beach Learn to Surf Company. This fair dinkum surfer dude is all about making sure visitors have a good time in the water. “Safe travels, big barrels”, is his motto. Within one hour, everyone in our group has stood up and surfed a wave at least once, even those of us who have never been on a board before. To put it simply, it’s awesome. Rainbow Beach is the perfect place to relax, take in some Queensland hospitality and recharge. It’s also just a short drive from Inskip Point, one of two gateways to Fraser Island. The Indigenous word for the world’s largest sand island is K’gari, for which the literal translation is paradise. Between the rugged coastline and freshwater lakes, it’s easy to see how it got its name. K’gari is starting to be used more frequently and it is hoped it will eventually follow the path of Uluru, which has now largely replaced Ayers Rock as the central Australian icon’s primary name.

Whether you stay for a day, a week or a month, there is plenty to see along Queensland’s Fraser Coast, which really is just a hop, skip and a jump from the Sunshine Coast. The writer travelled as a guest of Tourism and Events Queensland.

IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE The drive from Noosa Heads to Rainbow Beach takes about one hour along the Great Beach Drive. It’s about a 15-minute drive from Rainbow Beach to the Inskip Point ferry, which then travels across to Fraser Island. Visitors can also access Fraser Island by flying direct from Brisbane to Hervey Bay. STAYING THERE Noosa: Sofitel, 14–16 Hastings St, Noosa Heads. Visit sofitelnoosapacificresort.com.au.

22 MEDALS AND MEMORIES TO LAST Coast athletes close Commonwealth Games on a high note. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

AAP

S

unshine Coast athletes have done their region proud at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, securing eight gold, six silver and eight bronze, smashing records in the process. In the pool, University of the Sunshine Coast Spartans swimmer Leah Neale and her Aussie teammates set a new Games record of 7.48.04 in the Women’s 4x200-metre Freestyle Relay and fellow USC swimmer Jake Packard and his Men’s 4x100-metre Medley Relay teammates also set a new Games record of 3.31.04. USC para-swimmers Blake Cochrane and Ellie Cole both secured silver and bronze medals in their respective events and Tia-Clair Toomey already had the title of Fittest Woman on Earth before becoming a Commonwealth Games champion with a victory in the women’s 58-kilogram weightlifting category. Ms Toomey finished with six successful lifts for a total of 201-kilograms and dedicated her emotional win to her 17-year-old cousin Jade Dixson, who was killed in a crash near Nambour before the Games started. Australian Cycling Academy (ACA) rider Sam Welsford was also on form, securing two gold medals on the cycling track. Mr Welsford

Leigh Howard, Alex Porter, Sam Welsford, Jordan Kerby and Kelland O’Brien of Australia celebrate winning the Mens Team Pursuit finals on day one of the XXI Commonwealth Games set a new world record time in the Men’s 4000-metre Team Pursuit and then went on to take out the Men’s 15-kilometre Scratch Race. Mr Welsford competed alongside ACA riders Kelland O’Brien and Leigh Howard, with Alex Porter and Jordan Kerby completing the pursuit team. Their winning time of 3:49.804 was nearly half a second faster than the previous world record. It is the first time an Australian men’s team has held the team pursuit world record since 2004.

ACA director Ben Kersten says staff and supporters of the USC-based academy are “over the moon” with the rider’s results. “We’re lucky to have these guys in the national program and while they will be taking some well-earned time off, we will have them working hard on the Sunshine Coast until October, with the next international race in China in late July,” he says. Australia finished at the top of the medal tally with a total of 198 medals, including 80 gold, 59 silver and 59 bronze.

BIG STEPS TOWARDS AUTISM PROGRESS Some of the 700 young people estimated to live with autism on the Sunshine Coast will receive additional assistance thanks to a Federal Government grant. A $487,500 Strong and Resilient Communities grant was awarded to Steps Group earlier this week. The grant will go towards the Steps Positive Autism Connections project, which will aim to work with children, youth and families with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to support their social and economic participation within their communities. The program will work to prevent isolation by presenting opportunities for education, socialisation, building of friendships and shared support from others in the same situation. Presenting the grant, Federal Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace says the program can make a difference for hundreds of families on the Sunshine Coast. “Autism can be an isolating disorder, both for those living with it directly and for their families. The Government wants to help build strong communities with a real sense of belonging, and to do this we need to tackle all kinds of social isolation,” he says. “By giving young people and their families opportunities to socialise, to build resilience and share knowledge, this program will help us to build a stronger and more inclusive community for everyone.”

HERE TO HELP

Bloomhill Cancer Care provided invaluable support to local mum and cancer survivor Trudi Hill. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

W

hen Trudi Hill began losing her hair from chemotherapy, she made the decision not to cover up her bald head with a wig, scarf or hat so she would be a walking reminder for other women to go home and check their breasts. The 41-year-old registered nurse was diagnosed with triple-positive breast cancer just four weeks after she arrived on the Sunshine Coast in June last year. Ms Hill discovered a lump in her left breast during her sea change move from Victoria with husband Luke Wighton and their son Jackson, and it wasn’t until a few weeks later, when they had settled in, that she went to see a GP. “The doctor sent me off for an ultrasound and a mammogram, which is standard practice, but I had this terrible feeling,” she says. “I knew something was wrong. I wasn’t feeling unwell at all; I was the wellest-looking cancer patient you could think of. “The mammogram for the right side came up fine, but when they did the left side, I saw it all over the technician’s face that something was wrong. When they called the radiologist in after the ultrasound, my whole world changed.” After an “horrific” long weekend awaiting the results, Ms Hill underwent a double mastectomy, followed by six months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments daily for 25 weeks. She will undergo immunotherapy with Herceptin until November. Mr Wighton is a FIFO worker, so Ms Hill relied on friends to help her through her treatment and recovery in

Trudi Hill with husband Luke and son Jackson his absence. She discovered Bloomhill Cancer Care just after her surgery. “I found I wasn’t coping and I needed some [extra] support. I was going to Bloomhill twice a week for yoga and sometimes pilates and seeing the therapist there was instrumental in my psychological recovery. They have also helped Jackson to cope with it and the latest report is that he is managing very well,” she says. “It is so much easier to talk to people who understand what you are going through and Bloomhill is the perfect place to meet and connect with these people and it’s not all full of doom and gloom.”

Just last week, Ms Hill returned to work part time at Ochre Medical Centre at Sippy Downs and is looking forward to celebrating the ongoing connection she shares with the Bloomhill staff and fellow cancer patients at the Giggle Ball this weekend. “We’re very lucky to have the cancer services we do have here on the Sunshine Coast,” she says. “I’m a pretty tough critic being a nurse and I can’t fault any of them. “I am extremely grateful to everyone who has helped me on this journey and the biggest mention of all goes to Bloomhill. “I can’t wait to have a champagne, socialising and celebrating what Bloomhill have achieved and hopefully what they will continue to do into the future.” Aussie comedians and celebrity contestants from I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! Fiona O’Loughlin and Peter Rowsthorn are set to get the laughter rising and the funds pouring in for Bloomhill, which doesn’t receive any government funding. Well-known entertainment figure Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson will also make an appearance – he will act as MC for the event.

Tickets are still available to the Giggle Ball, which is on April 21 from 6pm at the Novotel Twin Waters. Tickets are $220 and include pre-dinner canapes, a three-course dinner and drinks. Visit bloomhill.com.au/online-shop.

Bones easily fractured? Loss of height or Scoliosis? Osteoporosis affects 4.74 million Australians over the age of 50 Are you experiencing worsening or unexplained back pain? Could it be that you’re shrinking? A curve in your spine giving you poor posture? Suffering fractures caused by little to no trauma? Feeling weak in the muscles? Osteoporosis is a progressive skeletal disorder due to a decrease in bone mass. Tell-tale signs are bone fragility causing frequent fractures and notable deterioration picked up during bone density scans. Early stage osteoporosis is classified as osteopenia and can be completely avoided if preventative action is taken. It’s important not to oversimplify osteoporosis as a disease relating to a lack of calcium. There are many complex mechanisms responsible for the health and density of our bones as we age. Hormone depletion or imbalance, vitamin D, magnesium, boron, phosphorous and other cofactors are also essential. Risk factors include sedentary lifestyle, smoking, regular alcohol intake, caffeine, early menopause, diabetes, family history, stress, depression, heavy metal toxicity, long term medication use and poor diet.

Crucial years for prevention is from the age of 30, when women begin to experience bone loss Several health issues can further increase your risk of osteoporosis, including kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, epilepsy, liver disease and adrenal fatigue. The stress hormone cortisol, has been shown to worsen symptoms and increase fracture risk, which is why it’s essential your treatment addresses the nervous system to regulate the stress response. Medications can cause side effects, limiting your quality of life when taken long term. Take back control by investigating preventative measures, so you can reverse the signs, avoid early or rapid deterioration and be one step ahead of the aging process. Now is the time to address any concerns you have about your future health. Individualised nutritional plans, specialised hormone testing and thorough functional pathology is all part of the naturopathic approach to preventative healthcare.

Troy Davey, Ord Minnett Buderim.

BANKS ARE CHEAP FOR A REASON

A

ustralian banks are looking inexpensive, and relatively well capitalised, but our position on the banks relative to other sectors is unchanged. We are still cautious given the medium-term challenges, including slowing credit growth, risks of deteriorating asset quality trends and pressure continuing on net interest margins. Recent data points have reaffirmed our views, including slowing credit and house-price growth, regulatory overhangs and asset-quality risks. In addition to this, a widening of money market spreads in March, if sustained, could also pose risk to funding costs. The sector’s fall now puts it on a 12-month forward price earnings (PE) multiple of 11.9x and a 20 per cent PE

discount to the S&P/ASX 200. As such, the sector’s 12-month forward PE multiple has fallen to 11.9x, below its long-term historical average of 12.3x, and is now at a 20 per cent PE discount to the S&P/ASX 200, close to historical extremes. However, earnings certainty is low. Consensus forecasts just 0.4 per cent earnings per share (EPS) growth in financial year 18, which appears conservative, but at the same time anticipates a return to four per cent growth in financial year 19, which seems optimistic.

“We don’t see a catalyst for the banks to sustainably outperform the broader market” In the year to date, the S&P/ASX 200 banks sector has declined by nearly seven per cent (including dividends), double the S&P/ASX 200 accumulation’s three per cent drop. It may seem tempting, therefore, to add to bank positions here, but we think there are better opportunities elsewhere.

Currently our sector preferences for 2018 put banks low in the pecking order. Recent events and macroeconomic data give us little reason to change this. Bank results season kicks off with Bank of Queensland in mid-April, before the majors start to report in early May. Trading updates provided in February were broadly within expectations, and sentiment towards the sector has been negative since 2015, when share prices peaked, suggesting it should be due for a relief rally. At the moment, we don’t see a catalyst for the banks to sustainably outperform the broader market and think, at best, a neutral position is warranted. Note the current weighting of banks in the S&P/ASX 200 is 24 per cent. Ord Minnett has ‘Lighten’ its recommendations on the regional banks (Bank of Queensland, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank), and our preference among the majors is ANZ due to its stronger capital position.

TOURISM FORUM Business Events Sunshine Coast has secured the right to host the Australian Amusement Leisure & Recreation Association (AALARA) Conference at Novotel Twin Waters Resort from May 8 to 10. Around 250 attendees including global speakers will converge on the region with the agenda of the event to discuss the most important trends affecting the amusement, leisure and recreation industry, with safety and global harmonisation at the forefront. The program also includes the opportunity for participants to see the new redevelopment at Downunder Drive with a dedicated function hosted by Aussie World as well as undertake site visits of local attractions including Australia Zoo, The Ginger Factory and Big Kart Track. AALARA’s Dax Eddy says with the industry going through a variety of shifts it is important relevant information is provided to ensure the industry moves forward.

MY OPINION

70,000 PATIENTS AND COUNTING

IT’S NOT ME, IT’S YOU

Sami Muirhead says the University Hospital has done a stellar job in its first year of operation but wishes its toy stash wasn’t so enticing.

Suzanne Loubris says assuming the best, rather than the worst, of people’s intentions makes for better relationships – but it’s not always easy.

S

ome things in life remain a mystery. For example, where are all the missing hair bands actually hiding in this world? Why do my fly zappers from the hardware shop fail to catch a single fly but the moment I pour a glass of shiraz, a big black fly lands in my goblet? Why does lipstick never stay on your lips but will stick to a wine glass like glue? And why do kids think everyone else has better toys than they do? We had another quick trip to the new local hospital this week (just a sprained ankle for my three-year-old) and my kids went bananas over the waiting room and its spoils. When I say bananas – insert here massive tantrum when we had to leave the waiting room and the toys in the area. I was ecstatic to be going home and not having to spend a long night in the hospital. Not so my offspring. Anyone watching the dramatic meltdowns that followed must have thought the poor little souls do not have anything to play with at home. The truth is, we have too much stuff because I am a pretty average mum most of the time and sometimes it is easier to buy a new toy than sit and spend quality time with my babies playing with things that cost nothing, such as nature, or to sit and use our imaginations to play. I do try, but often I get sucked into the material world of just buying stuff. But back to our new hospital. It is already over one year old – can you believe? We are so

lucky to have the Sunshine Coast University Hospital on our doorstep and the statistics after a short 12-month operational stint are mindblowing. Hospital CEO Naomi Dwyer says it has been an impressive first year when it comes to delivering health care to locals. “In our first year more than 70,000 people received treatment as inpatients”, Ms Dwyer says. “That equates to almost a quarter of the Sunshine Coast population. “We have performed 8995 surgeries, including 4467 elective surgeries. We have been privileged to welcome 2743 new

“We are so lucky to have the Sunshine Coast University Hospital” babies into the world, including 63 multiple births,” she says. All those patients need a whole lot of jelly and custard (and no doubt more nutritional food)and the hospital staff have served up 380,000 meals in just 12 months. There are currently 450 beds at the hospital, with plans to increase that number to match our booming population to 738 beds by 2021. So congratulations to our new hospital and all the team. Hopefully the toy stash does not get any better or I will never get my children to stay away.

H

ave you ever been in a relationship with someone who had a completely different perspective on your actions to your intentions? I lived with a friend who accused me of belittling her in front of other people. I was blown away, because I had the hugest respect for her. Eventually I figured it out. We would banter and say cheeky things to each other when we were alone together. I didn’t realise that when I did the same thing in front of her friends, she reacted differently. She saw it as belittling. The other day my partner was smiling while he watched a pretty girl we both know as she danced salsa. Well, of course he must be fantasising about being with her, my brain decided. It is inevitable that he must be tired of me and looking to move on to someone younger and more attractive. Sounds crazy, huh? But how many of us are prone to this type of thinking? Almost every day I hear people describe other people’s actions as ill-intentioned. People love to play at ‘amateur psychologist’. I am particularly amused by those who accuse people of manipulating them. I really don’t think most people are that smart. Most people are just doing the best they can to live the life they have been allotted. There is not always a lot of thought going into it all. We are very rarely choosing our behaviour, never mind trying to figure out

how to hurt someone. So, why is it that some of us (yes, me too) will so easily attribute negative intentions to the behaviours of the people in our lives? When faced with someone’s unfathomable behaviour, it is so incredibly easy to decide that the person has ill intentions. People tell me that if someone is late for something, it must be because “they don’t respect me”. Very seldom do I hear that they are just bad at time management or may have been caught in a situation where they didn’t feel comfortable leaving. If you have a tendency to get upset with your partner for their actions, stop and ask them what their thinking might be. Maybe the way you interpreted their actions is based on your mindset. Maybe they were trying to do something good for you and they didn’t realise you would see it negatively. The next step is to believe them. Some people are so attached to their negative spin on someone else’s behaviour that they accuse them of lying. You might think: “If I was to do that, it would mean I had no respect for that person”. Well, the other person may not even be cognisant of their actions, never mind how their actions might land. Try to take a step back from now on, ask questions and really listen to the answers. Maybe even own up to the possibility that your interpretations may be completely incorrect. It will make for an easier and more peaceful relationship.

ickets for the 2018 Caloundra Music Festival have gone on sale and if the talent is anything to go by, keen festival-goers should act fast to avoid missing out. Birds of Tokyo, John Butler Trio, The Living End, The Waifs and The Temper Trap are set to head up the explosive list of artists who are locked in to perform at the event later this year. Announcing the first round of artists, festival director Richie Eyles says the event will feature a program of broad appeal including top Australian acts, exciting emerging artists and quality internationals. “John Butler Trio is back by high demand,’’ he says. “A big crowd favourite that festival goers request every single year, it’s fantastic to have them back and hot on the heels of their North American summer tour.” Also returning by popular demand are two American bands who took the crowd by storm last year. Both Groovement and Red Young won the hearts of festival-goers with their

unique sounds of jazz and funk. Continuing the New Orleans connection and making their Caloundra Music Festival debut is power funk band Big Sam’s Funky Nation. They’ll be injecting heavy groove vibes through high-energy music that mixes funk, rock and roll, hip-hop, and jazz. The four-day festival will be held at Kings Beach, Caloundra from September 28 to October 1. Tickets are on sale now. For more information on the program, or to secure tickets, visit caloundramusicfestival.com.au.

Birds of Tokyo

The story of the ‘cursed’ Morrigan Crow is one of pure excitement, and her escape from death and consequent quest to enter the Wundrous Society in the magical city of Nevermoor is an enthralling entry into a new series by Jessica Townsend. So much so, it became the first children’s book to be named overall winner in the 10-year history of the Australian Independent Booksellers’ Awards. Ms Townsend is a Sunshine Coast author who can concoct an entirely new world, with all of its quirks, customs and idiosyncrasies, and then translate that into eager pageturning and escapism at its best. Much like the beloved Harry Potter, Morrigan Crow looks poised to become the next young adult literary hero. This is one of the best school holidays reads to tuck into, and when the kids are done, the grown-ups can have a sneaky read too.

Dominating the airwaves in the ’70s with monster hit after hit, 10cc has sold more than 15 million albums in the UK and 30 million worldwide. From their breakthrough debut single Donna in 1972 to their final number one, Dreadlock Holiday, in 1978, the group has created solid gold classics such as I’m Not In Love, Rubber Bullets, The Wall Street Shuffle and many more. 10cc is at The Events Centre, Caloundra on April 26 at 8pm. Tickets are $79.90 and are available at theeventscentre.com.au.

CLASSIC TO HIT THE STAGE

With its artistic ballet mastery, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets, Moscow Ballet ‘La Classique’ takes us on a journey back in time to the frostcovered, gaslit world of Clara, her beloved Nutcracker Doll and the Magician Drosselmeyer. This romantic tale with its blend of magic and realism brings to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and The Waltz of the Flowers. The Nutcracker is at The Events Centre, Caloundra on April 22 at 2.30pm. Tickets are $85 adult, $75 concession and $55 child and are available from theeventscentre.com.au.

Following their sell-out 2017 performances of Swan Lake, the Moscow Ballet ‘La Classique’ returns to the Sunshine Coast to present the jewel of classical ballet, Tchaikovsky’s ageless tale of bravery and dreams, The Nutcracker.

St Petersburg by Laith McGregor The 2018 exhibition program at Caloundra Regional Gallery officially opens this week with an exhibition by leading contemporary Australian artist Laith McGregor. The Borrowed Time exhibition brings together new and recent works by the artist, focusing on the themes of time and labour. For Mr McGregor, time is both a subject matter for his work, as well being a tangible measure of the artist’s labour. Caloundra Regional Gallery curator Hamish Sawyer, who also curated the exhibition, says the artist is best known for his highly detailed, large-scale biro and pencil portraits. “McGregor draws largely on his own lived experience as the source material for his work,” Mr Sawyer says. “While best known for his portraits, in recent years his practice has become increasingly collaborative and now encompasses print-making, sculpture and video, in addition to drawing and painting, all of which are represented the in the exhibition. “A centrepiece of the exhibition is an installation of ceramic and mixed-media sculptures that were recently gifted by the artist to the Sunshine Coast Art Collection and will now become part of this important cultural asset for our community.” Borrowed Time is on at the Caloundra Regional Gallery until April 29.

COUPLE SWAPS PENTHOUSE FOR HALCYON

A YEAR TO REMEMBER

and people were going for a walk or taking the community bus out,” Mr Ritchie says. “There’s something on every day if you want to involve yourself in it – cards, aqua aerobics, golf.” And the different lifestyle was evident from their first day at Halcyon, with their new neighbours quickly rolling out the welcome mat. “When we moved in our neighbour from across the way very kindly came over

“There’s something on every day if you want to involve yourself in it – cards, aqua aerobics, golf”

omeowners Fran and Ian Ritchie have traded a luxurious oceanfront apartment for a bigger slice of social life at Halcyon Greens. The couple lived on Ephraim Island in the Gold Coast for almost two years, and while they loved the magnificent water views from their sub-penthouse, they felt that something was missing on the social front. “When you retire you want a social network and we found living vertically, as you do at Ephraim Island, that there’s no social aspect to it,” Mr Ritchie says. “You might meet up with one or two people, but it’s just like high-rise living and you might not even know your neighbour.”

LEA’S EDEN AFÉ IS C NEW W

NO OPEN

Mrs Ritchie says she didn’t entertain at the apartment as much as she had in their family home. “I didn’t have people over nearly half as much as I did when we lived in our house at Monterey Keys,” she says. “Those social interactions diminished dramatically, and our social life was basically the two of us going to lunch or movies. “Sometimes Ian would be watching sport on TV in the living room and I’d be in the bedroom watching Netflix, and I’d think ‘is this living?’” Halcyon Greens’ vibrant community spirit stood out for the couple straight away. “What impressed us was that people were waving to us as we drove around,

and invited in us in for a cup of coffee, which we did,” Mrs Ritchie says. “We felt very welcome. The next day, one of the folks told us that happy hour was on at 4pm.” A keen card player, Mrs Ritchie says she’s already found some ladies who are interested in starting a canasta group and, health permitting, she hopes to make the most of having Gainsborough Greens Golf Course on her doorstep by getting back on the fairways.

The young generation has been taking a gap year for decades. But the good news for older generations is that it is never too late. That’s what Chris Herrmann thought when he decided to take a senior gap year. His new book, My Senior Gap Year, tells the story of a not-so-typical backpacker on a great adventure. In Mr Herrmann’s career he worked in corporate management and was the founder of a small business technology start-up. His business has been recognised for several Australian Government small business, entrepreneurial and innovation awards. His client list has included some of Australia’s top listed companies. But when he was nearing the age when most start thinking about retiring and slowing down, Mr Herrmann took a different direction. With no desire to retire, he took a gap year. He set off to do the exact opposite to his professional past. No structure. No goals. To be free and just explore. Equipped with a new title, a Senior Gap Year Specialist, his next vision is to encourage more people of his age to do the same.

PICCALILLI’S CAFÉ - PART OF EDENLEA’S NEW APARTMENT COMPLEX For those who haven’t heard yet we have opened our new coffee shop and christened it “Piccalilli’s Café”. We have been open now for a couple of weeks and Residents are dropping by each day to enjoy coffee, tea and smoothies, as well as cakes, pies, scones, sandwiches and more.

hen preparing to sell your property, there’s no such thing as gaining too much information. From preparing for open houses, to packing, to organising your new home, there is much to do. For some people, buying and selling property is a familiar process, but for others who have spent many years or decades living in the same home, it can be overwhelming. Fear of the unknown may even be the one thing holding you back from downsizing and making the move to a retirement village. To help you get started, Lendlease has worked with leading real estate specialists to develop a free property valuation tool to offer guidance and assistance through the early stages of the downsizing process. This free property report presents valuable market insights into the value of your home in an easy-to-understand document. By simply filling out the online form with a few basic details, the report will come straight to your email inbox courtesy of real estate comparison specialist Agent Select, which helps homeowners connect with the local real estate agent who’s right for them. Inside the report, you’ll find nine pages of information on your property and where it stands in the local market. One of the most valuable details is a property value estimate

and range. This is provided by CoreLogic and is a statistically derived estimate that presents you with a confident price range. This can be used as a starting point to get you thinking about the value of your property. Whatever your situation, the Property Value Report comes complete with the resources you need to approach a real estate agent with a clear goal in mind. The report profiles a number of recently sold properties in your area, as well as a number that are currently on the market. It also lists a number of current rental properties in the area, as an insight into leasing prices if you are considering that option. This targeted information is presented alongside market information specific to your suburb, including median prices and other key metrics like sales activities, price growth and rental yield. While this may sound like it’s edging the fence towards jargon, the report presents these detailed figures and graphs in a way that’s easy to grasp and understand.

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

On Tuesday, Mars and Jupiter generate a lucky opportunity involving education, children, sport or social media. From Thursday until Sunday, a major relationship (whether romantic or platonic) could go through a metamorphosis.

Have you been shopping up a storm when you should have been saving or paying off debt? If the answer is ‘yes’, you can expect a financial hiccup this week, as the full moon highlights money matters. It also brings up issues involving your self-esteem.

Expect some drama this week as Mars, Pluto and the full moon (in your sign) increase your magnetism – and your tendency to brooding, obsessive behaviour. Do your best to find appropriate ways to let off steam and channel your intense energy.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Tuesday’s Mars/Jupiter connection sends a lucky opportunity your way – just make sure that you are primed to grab good fortune when it comes along! Then, Sunday night’s full moon stimulates your spirituality zone, so it’s the perfect time to meditate.

The planetary patterns promise an amazing week … with one proviso. Can you keep your control-freak tendencies under control? If you can, you’ll astound and amaze others with your can-do Capricorn attitude and your talent for leadership.

Beneath a somewhat detached and deceptively calm exterior, you’ll feel rather restless this week. Jupiter and the full moon imbue you with a sense of urgency, and you’re keen to activate an ambitious project; self-discipline is what’s needed.

This week, do your best to assiduously avoid Piscean passivity and procrastination! With Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the full moon all activating your aspirations zones, it’s time to be courageous and confident as you proactively set ambitious goals.

THE SUNSHINE COAST HAS BECOME THE STATE’S PROPERTY POWERHOUSE It’s no longer just retirees and young families – there is a healthy balance of buyers across all demographics. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he Real Estate Industry of Queensland’s CEO has described the Sunshine Coast property market as the “powerhouse” driving the state’s market. With significant demand from buyers and limited stock driving price growth of around six per cent a year, Antonia Mercorella says the Coast has delivered “extraordinarily strong and consistent growth over recent years.” “Demand for property comes from the desire to live in a region that features world-class beaches, an enviable climate, great shopping, highly desirable restaurants, good schools, and of course all within reasonable proximity of Brisbane and all the amenity that comes with living near a capital city – who wouldn’t want to live there,” she says. “It’s an extraordinary part of the world to live in and there is little wonder that people are keen to buy their own piece of paradise.” Ms Mercorella says the high demand has meant supply has “been a bit of an issue” in previous years, but with developers

delivering house and land packages, she anticipates this will ease some of the pressure. “Projects such as Aura, to name one of the largest projects, will help people find the lifestyle they want within an affordable price range,” she says. “It is important to recognise that as ABS data demonstrates, population growth to the south-east corner of Queensland is growing and internal migration figures demonstrate that we are one of the most popular destinations in the country. The level of supply coming to the market should continue to ensure that demand is being sated and upward pressure on prices is minimised.” Developers have a challenge on hand, with the make-up of the growing population no longer as heavy on the retiree demographic. “The Sunshine Coast typically has an image of being a very family-dominated community, however, the 2016 Census data showed that a little over half the population was made up of either two-parent or

Antonia Mercorella

“…there is little wonder that people are keen to buy their own piece of paradise.”

LIVE LARGE IN THE FOREST

single-parent families (54.9 per cent) and 44 per cent were couples without children,” Ms Mercorella says. “So, this would indicate that while half the community is family focused, the other half is not and so any developer would be wise to take that into account when looking at the type of stock they’re thinking about building.” A rise in popularity of apartments being sold and rented on the Sunshine Coast is testament to the desire for young first-home buyers and downsizing older couples to live in low-maintenance properties that are in easy access of community facilities, public transport and work. There is a healthy balance of buyers across all demographics, including investors, who Ms Mercorella says are attracted to the low vacancy rate. “At 0.7 per cent for both the Sunshine Coast SD (statistical division) and the Sunshine Coast LGA (local government area), this region has almost the lowest vacancy rate in the state – which translates to many potential tenants to choose from and security of tenancy,” she says.

HOW A SMART CAMPAIGN WILL GET TOP DOLLAR Real estate agent Russell Dell says it was the combined print and online campaign that reaped rewards for these sellers.

“A high percentage of buyers saw the advertising in MWP”

T

here was no shortage of interest when savvy buyers caught wind that a luxurious five-bedroom home was up for sale in Sippy Downs. Century 21 agent Russell Dell says his belief that higher inspection numbers and offers will eventuate when multiple buyers

are inspecting a home “and eyeballing their competition” was never truer than with the sale of 78 Albany Street. Using an online and print combination through My Property Preview for the marketing campaign, Mr Dell oversaw 27 inspections over a three-week period with the

OCEAN VERGE

property ultimately selling before the scheduled auction date. “Combined marketing ensures that we reach the widest possible market so that we have the best opportunity to achieve a premium result for our vendor,” he says. “A high percentage of the local buyers saw the advertising in MWP and 30 per cent of buyers were from interstate or Brisbane. “This resulted in high numbers of inspections at open homes and definitely encouraged buyers to put their best foot forward with offers. “Results like this certainly provide great evidence to my vendors as to why I encourage combining print and online marketing for their property.”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Okay, Margaret River is still on as I file this report and Julian is well and truly in the hunt. Hopefully, he can keep a push going for some solid points. Mikey Wright is looking in good form too. Boy what a difference a day makes. Was checking out Lennox Head last week late afternoon and it was simply not working. The next morning, swell direction changed and it was PUMPING with only a handful in the water. Where was I? Having coffee in the Byron hinterland at my friend’s house, so I missed it! So, always check it as you never, never know. This weekend is predicting the devil wind so get what you can and enjoy.

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