THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 500 May 18, 2018
Of the world’s seven species of turtles found in the world, six are found within Australian waters. Unfortunately, these species are listed as endangered or vulnerable to extinction. Sea Life Sunshine Coast has taken a proactive role in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of marine turtles. Since 1989, the organisation has cared for more than 1000 turtles at its turtle hospital. Together with Sea Life Sunshine Coast, we are giving one lucky family the chance to take a behind-thescenes tour of the hospital and to see firsthand the work taking place.
FROM THE EDITOR
his week has been a pretty big one for the team at My Weekly Preview. Not only have we scored some great interviews and stories, we have quietly been celebrating our 500th edition. That’s right, our team has written, designed and produced 500 editions of MWP since its inception. In those early days we were known as My Property Preview, but through the years we have morphed into a news and lifestyle publication, still with a strong focus on the real estate market. We remain 100 per cent locally owned, providing employment and income to 160 families. And while I haven’t been a part of the team for all 500 editions (187 and counting), I am as proud of the work that goes into this publication each week as those who have worked here from the very first day. As a team, we love planning and compiling this magazine each week and stand by our ethos of supporting and educating the community. This week, we have spent hours researching and investigating one of the biggest issues facing our planet – marine debris and its effect on wildlife. I hope that each and every reader is able to take away some useful information from this feature story. Also this edition, we chat with Coast filmmaker Chris Sun, who is holding the Australian premiere of his latest flick, Boar, in Nambour. John Jarratt, Nathan Jones and Simone Buchanan will walk down the red carpet. Read more on page 26. Finally, to all our supporters, thank you. Enjoy!

THE EPIDEMIC FACING OUR OCEANS
There’s more plastic than plankton in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and on the eve of World Turtle Day, we look at the deadly impact of polluted oceans on marine life and what each one of us can do to clean up our act. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
“It is estimated that up to 15,000 sea turtles are entangled in, or harmed by, marine debris in Australia each year”
t’s the world’s biggest rubbish dump – and it’s located in the ocean. Estimated to be larger than the Northern Territory, and closing in on the size of Queensland, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a grimy soup of plastic – 80,000 tonnes of the stuff to be exact, or the equivalent weight of 50,000 cars. Word from the UN environmental program is that the patch is growing so fast that, not unlike the Great Wall of China, it is becoming visible from space. The patch, which contains 40 times more plastic than plankton, is basically one big garbage vortex, sucking rubbish into its stable centre from far and wide. Here you will find everything from straws, bottles and cups through to a 1995 Nintendo Gameboy, a 1989 hard hat and a plastic crate dating back to the ‘70s. Alarmingly, 80 per cent of the debris comes from the land, much of it nondegradable. The reality is almost too terrifying to grasp. Lying between California and Hawaii, the phenomenon was discovered in 1997 by an American sailor and studies show that the plastic floats beneath the surface to a depth of around 10 metres. The patch contains 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic and is getting worse rapidly, according to research published in the journal Scientific Reports in March as part of the biggest study to date.
12 My Weekly Preview | May 18, 2018
Conducted by The Ocean Cleanup, in conjunction with six universities and an aerial sensor company, the study revealed the extent of the problem is larger than initially thought – up to 16 times higher than previously estimated. “We were surprised by the amount of large plastic objects we encountered,” says chief scientist, Dr Julia Reisser. “We used to think most of the debris consists of small fragments, but this new analysis shines a new light on the scope of the debris.” The not-for-profit Ocean Cleanup group is the brainchild of 23-year-old Dutch inventor Boyan Slat and consists of more than 70 engineers, researchers, scientists and computational modellers who work daily to rid the ocean of plastic. Mr Slat has gained global attention since launching the foundation five years ago, raising more than US$31 million for the project. Last week he told the world he would bring forward the launch of his 600-metre cleanup system to 2018, with trials to begin this week. What began as a pipedream now has the potential to save millions of sea creatures and preserve our environment. It is hoped the device will “clean up 50 per cent of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch within five years”. According to the research, this patch is only one of the five offshore “plastic accumulation zones” in our oceans.
This year alone, more than nine million tonnes of plastic will enter the world’s oceans, says Reef Check Australia’s community engagement manager and marine biologist, Jodi Salmond. It is predicted that by 2050, the amount of rubbish in the ocean will outweigh the number of fish if drastic measures aren’t taken now. Although removing one-time use plastic bags is a step in the right direction, it’s just a drop in the ocean – literally.
From the keyboard you type on or the pen you hold, to the straw you sip from, the lenses you look through and the $20 note you hand over to the store cashier, no one can go a day without coming into contact with plastic. Spend five minutes Googling plastic in oceans and you are sure to feel a gut-wrenching guilt. “There is no question that we need to change our addiction to plastic,’’ Ms Salmond tells My Weekly Preview from her

COVER STORY Mooloolaba base. “We need to make conscious decisions and stop thinking that recycling will fix it. It won’t. We need to think about our actions, and actively choose alternatives. Take your own coffee cup or go without. You will stop forgetting very quickly. “Buy second-hand and local. Buy fresh produce from farmers markets. Think about nude food. Each one of these actions can make huge impacts.” In her years as a marine biologist, Ms Salmond has worked everywhere from Sea Life in Mooloolaba to Christmas Island and Mozambique, and has also tagged turtles on Lady Musgrave Island. She has developed and delivered education programs, expanded community outreach efforts and coordinated reef survey projects. “I have been lucky enough to work in a variety of places around Australia and the world and marine debris is in my opinion one of the biggest issues facing our marine ecosystems to date,’’ Ms Salmond says. “Studies show at least 663 species are affected by marine debris, including all sea turtle species, half of all mammal species and one fifth of all sea bird species. In addition to entering the food chain, plastics can result in entanglement and entrapment for many species. “Every beach I have ever been to has items of marine debris on it. Some of it floats into these areas, and some is local. “The idea is to understand the source of the debris, so we can minimise or eliminate it at the source, stopping it from entering our waterways in the first place. “There’s over 11 billion pieces of plastic debris on coral reefs in the Asia-Pacific region alone. Plastic has devastating effects on our environment; endangering wildlife, destroying habitats and entering our food chain. “Animals from whales to turtles, to sea birds and plankton, the very smallest creatures of the ocean ecosystem, are ingesting plastics regularly.” It is estimated that up to 15,000 sea turtles are entangled in, or harmed by,
Sea Life Sunshine Coast aquarist Jesse Hart marine debris in Australia each year. One person who sees the devastating effect plastic has on our turtles is Sea Life Sunshine Coast aquarist Jesse Hart. Mr Hart, who has worked at the Mooloolaba aquarium for 10 years, plays an integral role in the organisation’s hospital, which takes care of sick and injured turtles. Speaking on the eve of World Turtle Day, which will be celebrated on May 23, Mr Hart says his goal is to help educate the public to take care of wild animal populations across the globe. “The public and volunteers have been bringing turtles into Sea Life since we opened in 1989,’’ he says. “We upgraded our turtle hospital a few years ago. “On arrival, we give them [the turtles] a health assessment and then work with our veterinarian to create a treatment plan to help the animal return to full health. “Depending on the condition of the animal, this will include antibiotics, vitamins, target feeding, sometimes wound dressing and lots of TLC. “Sea Life Sunshine Coast has cared for over 1000 turtles in its nearly 30 years of operation.”
Mr Hart says there are a number of ways the average person can help the plight of our wildlife. “Pick up rubbish, even if it’s not near the beach. Do not use plastic, use other alternatives. “Make pledges to save the environment. Join local volunteer groups and help them when it is turtle nesting season on the Sunshine Coast. “If we don’t protect the turtles, they and many other marine creatures will become extinct. If we protect our sea turtles, we will also be saving our oceans.” In addition to the turtle hospital, Sea Life has taken its environmental work one step further by coordinating monthly beach cleanups along Mooloolaba Beach. The community-based program resulted in the removal of 360 kilograms of rubbish from the area in 2017. In February, more than 300 people collected 843 kilograms of debris from beaches and waterways as part of Sunshine Coast Council’s annual cleanup event. While volunteers removed litter and debris from the beaches, Reef Check Australia divers also scoured local waterways. Given that ingestion of marine debris is one of the major causes of death in hatchling sea turtles, it is a step in the right direction, says Ms Salmond. “We always have hope. “Every single action counts, and as more and more people join the zero waste movement, our actions are amplified, but we certainly have a ways to go. “Our planet cannot continue on the path it is on, or we will all be swimming in a sea of plastic in no time. “In terms of technology, I believe it will continue to develop and maybe that can help reduce the plastic issue over time. “Let’s stop trying to clean up the mess we made, and stop making a mess in the first place. “Remember –we can all make a difference to the health of our environments. We can change the trajectory we are currently set on. What will you do to break the habit?”

know? Sea turtles have been living on Earth for around 150 million years. These are the biggest threats facing sea turtles: • Entanglement in fishing gear • Poaching and illegal trade of eggs, meat, and shells • Unsustainable development • Plastic and other marine debris • Global warming • Ocean pollution. SOURCE: SEA LIFE SUNSHINE COAST
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Jodi Salmond (pictured) of Reef Check Australia says there’s something each of us can do about the issue of marine debris. Here are a few ideas: • Carry a reusable water bottle, coffee cup and carry bag with you wherever you go. • Skip the straw. Ditch single-use plastics like straws and cutlery. • If you see plastic debris, please pick it up and put it in the nearest bin. • Check out reefcheckaustralia.org for more ways to help. And don’t forget – it’s up to us to break the waste habit.

SOUND CROWD EVENING IN EUMUNDI A fun group of singers turned up to the latest Sound Crowd event, a community choir held on the second Wednesday of every month in The Brewery at Eumundi. Sound Crowd director Analiese Long says the contemporary choir gives everyone a chance to sing popular songs with a drink in hand and mates around. “This is an inclusive event and we welcome everyone – experienced singers as well as those of us who happily belt out a song in the shower or car with the music turned up loud,” Ms Long says.
Dave Hackett, Bar Graham
There is no preparation required. Guides teach participants one song in an hourand-a-half, with the group all performing it together at the end of the night. Take the main vocal or try some harmonies. Sound Crowd will supply the words and musical accompaniment, so participants simply need to grab a drink and join in. The next event will be on Wednesday June 13. Photos: Supplied

FIRST PRIVATE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT ON THE WAY The Sunshine Coast community will have round-the-clock access to the region’s first private medical emergency centre at Buderim Private Hospital when it opens in August. Buderim Private Hospital will team up with experienced independent medical specialist emergency group, Care 24/7, to deliver the service. Care 24/7 already provides private medical emergency care to other major hospitals, including Calvary Wakefield Hospital in Adelaide. Construction of the new $4-million custom-designed facility and procurement of state-ofthe-art emergency medical equipment is currently underway, together with the recruitment of additional staff and skilled emergency doctors.
NOMINATE YOUR FAVOURITE LOCAL BUSINESS The Sunshine Coast Business Awards will be launched on May 30. The region’s longest established business awards have been celebrated since 1995 and from this year they will be managed by the Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance, bringing a stronger, region-wide focus to the awards. The awards program culminates in a major gala event held in November, attended by 600 people from the business community. The awards are open to all businesses across the Coast and an invigorated new process will be unveiled at the launch. To find out more, email email@example.com.
$70 BILLION FROM BUDERIM TO CAIRNS FOR CANCER Buderim’s Bloomhill Cancer Care will be a hive of activity in the early hours of the morning on May 18 as a group of cyclists get set to undertake an epic journey to raise funds for the construction of the Cairns Couch Cancer Wellness Centre. The Couch Cancer Ride will feature 10 cyclists riding from the Bloomhill Cancer Care Centre at Buderim to the site of the Cairns Couch Cancer Wellness Centre, an incredible 1900-kilometre distance over nine days. This centre will be based on the Bloomhill model of care and provide support to families living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. To donate, visit couchcancer-ride.everydayhero.do.
A Queensland centre of excellence has been proposed to the State Government to tap into the $70-billion export industry through medical marijuana. Based on the Sunshine Coast, Medifarm is the state’s sole licensed marijuana cultivator and manufacturer and director Adam Benjamin says a facility like this could be based at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien says this is a global industry that is growing and the opportunity exists for one state to take the lead. The facility will require start-up funding of $25 million over five years.
SUMMER SURF GIRL COMP HEATS UP Olivia Blight from Noosa Heads, Nikki Chapman of Maroochydore and Dicky Beach resident Jessica Simpson will join eight of Queensland’s top young female surf lifesavers on the Gold Coast to kick-start the final judging of this year’s Summer Surf Girl program. All three local girls will by vying to become the Sunshine Coast’s first winner of the program since Marcoola’s Tiffany Di Ianni took out the prestigious title back in 2015. For the past 12 months, each entrant has taken on the responsibility of representing their respective surf club to engage with local communities, raise vital funds, and spread the surf safety message.

ROADS AND RAIL TRIFECTA FOR SUNSHINE COAST The Sunshine Coast was the big winner in this year’s Federal Budget, with more than $2 billion in new money allocated for transport infrastructure upgrades. Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien says the Coast secured a “rail and roads trifecta” with $390 million committed to rail line upgrades between Beerburrum and Nambour, $800 million announced to complete safety upgrades of the notorious Cooroy to Curra stretch of the Bruce Highway and $880 million to upgrade the Bruce between the Sunshine Coast and Pine Rivers. The works would mean three northbound lanes and three southbound lanes all the way from Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, however the State Government needs to commit 20 per cent towards the Bruce Highway works before they can commence.
WORK BEGINS ON MORCOMBE FOUNDATION’S NEW HOME A new home for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation is under construction, with State Minister for Child Safety Di Farmer joining Bruce and Denise Morcombe at the ceremony in Palmwoods last week. The future building will be called Daniel House and will become the foundation’s administrative hub and national office for the Morcombes’ Keeping Kids Safe Program. It will also become the home of the Walk Tall program, which offers free counselling services for survivors of crime from Caboolture up to Gympie. The State Government provided $900,000 in funding, but local donations from the business community have made the project a reality.
MILESTONE FOR MAJOR COAST CHARITY The tireless team behind Wishlist has celebrated two decades of brightening the lives of Sunshine Coast patients and providing much-needed equipment and comfort for countless sick and injured residents. Wishlist CEO Lisa Rowe says, “All in all, a phenomenal $17 million has been raised and directed to the needs of the Sunshine Coast Hospital Health Service, and we do it all without touching a single cent of any donation for operational costs thanks to enterprise such as the Nambour Hospital car park.” To donate, visit wishlist.org.au.

Police Sergeant Mal Scott was announced the winner of the inaugural Sunshine Coast Police Officer of the Year Awards at a gala ceremony at the Maroochy River Golf Club last week. Sgt Scott (pictured right with Inspector Jon Lewis) says the award from the Rotary Club of Sunshine Coast Central is a highlight of his 35-year career, which has seen him serving the Cooroy district for 20 years. “To be nominated by the Cooroy community firstly and then selected as the winning officer by my peers is an amazing honour given the fact that there are so many other dedicated officers on the Sunshine Coast who deserve this award as much as I do,” he says. “Even the kids at the Cooroy Blue Light Disco on Friday night were high-fiving me.” The awards are supported by My Weekly Preview.

ARTS ON THE HORIZON
The Coast will again play host to an arts extravaganza when the 10-day Horizon Festival kicks off in August. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
IMAGE: BEN VOS PHOTOGRAPHY
dedicated team of local arts professionals worked together for months to bring more than 200 arts and culture-inspired events to life during last year’s 10-day Horizon Festival and the appetite for creative experiences from the Sunshine Coast community continues to increase. Delivering yet another stellar line-up for 2018 is a challenge Horizon Festival director Jo Jordan says she is happy to be faced with. This year is the third for the festival, which provides a platform for local artists to showcase their skills as well as collaborate with national and international talents to provide unique events for Coast residents and visitors. Horizon has struck a chord with the community since its inception in 2016, where Ms Jordan says they were able to prove the potential of the festival with limited resources. Recognising the wide-ranging community benefits of such a unique festival, the Sunshine Coast Council has committed funding up until 2019 and My Weekly Preview has become a proud supporter. “A real momentum was built from the inaugural event and probably the one thing that we didn’t anticipate was the level of growth we would see in Year two,” Ms Jordan says. “We had 35,000 people engaged over the 10 days in 2016, and in 2017 we had more than 50,000 people connect with the events and projects that were developed in collaboration with the arts community across the Sunshine Coast. “What’s even more extraordinary is the incredible number of artists, producers, communities and volunteers
Dawn Awakening at Stumers Creek in Coolum engaged with the delivery of this festival.” Demand for one of last year’s highlights – Architects of Air’s world-famous walk through inflatable art structure Arboria luminarium – was so great they exceeded the anticipated attendance with more than 13,000 people experiencing this immersive art installation. “That was a really tangible outcome,” Ms Jordan says. “Another highlight was seeing 1100 people get up at 4am on Father’s Day to be part of the Dawn Awakening event at Stumers Creek in Coolum. That whole project really embodied the concept of ‘art responding to place’ with stunning imagery inspired by local indigenous stories
projected onto the surrounding sand banks and live performances by the Gubbi Gubbi dance troupe and local and visiting musicians and choirs.” Ms Jordan says while this year’s extensive program is still being finalised, details of the planned delights will start to emerge from mid-June before a full program release in early July. “Once again, Horizon will deliver events across performance, visual art, music, street art, comedy, theatre and immersive technology. A lot of these projects are still in development and even where we are bringing an existing work to the Coast, we are going to put a local spin on it and connect to our grassroots arts industry to create something unique for our community,” she says. “It’s all about balance and for the 2018 and 2019 festivals we have moved to a more curatorial programming format, so essentially we’ve looked at a number of key focus areas including First Nations and immersive art, art that responds to place, and how technology, the environment and popular culture have influenced the arts. There’s a story behind every project and we can’t wait to start telling them.”
The Horizon Festival is on from August 24 to September 2 and is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview. Stay up to date on program announcements, behind the scenes news and event information by following the Horizon Festival Facebook page or signing up to e-news on horizonfestival.com.au.

APP OF THE WEEK
Heja is Swedish for cheering on teammates, making it the perfect name for an app that is designed to organise sports teams. This app allows coaches, managers, parents and players to communicate with one another in a closed setting, with active messaging, photo sharing, event planning and the ability to RSVP to games to show expected attendance. Scheduling tools allow the coaches to send out reminders to parents so they never forget a game day. Great for parents with multiple children in sports as it allows them to store all of the information in the one place. Heja is free to download on the App Store and Google Play.
Listen to True Stories on iTunes or Soundcloud.
It is by no means fresh content, but this is a podcast that is definitely worth a listen. The True Stories series was listed as iTunes Best Podcasts of 2015 and the back catalogue includes everything from high-school survival tales to the untold stories of multicultural Australia. The third, and most recent, series departs from the former two somewhat in that it is a five-part investigation into the murders of gay South Australian men over the past several decades. Each episode explores the intriguing circumstances of an unsolved case, told by award-winning Australian investigative journalist and writer Mark Whittaker. These are buried chapters of Australia’s recent history, laid bare, and make for riveting listening.
Does Your Immune System Often Crash? Stuck in bed for days or weeks after a stressful time? Always Getting Colds and Flu? Have you ever wondered why some people suffer with an immune crash right after intense exercising or high work load without enough downtime? Whether it’s a cold or flu, virus, or adrenal fatigue, it could result in a week or two in bed recovering. During ongoing stress, hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin are produced in high quantities helping you keep up with the extra demands on your body for the short term. When the time comes to rest, the adrenalin stops pumping, which has an effect on your overall hormonal balance, causing the stress hormone cortisol to also drop. For those who suffer with a relatively low immune system, which you may not notice until this time, the adrenal fatigue triggers an acute response, rendering you susceptible to infection.
Approximately 90% of our population carry a toxic bacteria contracted through travel, or contact with others, which has a substantial impact on your immune system, and recovery from stress. Bacteria are the most common cause of your poor immune response during times of stress, as they have a negative effect on the levels of immune boosting beneficial bacteria in your gut. Certain bacteria produce a toxin in quantities that far outweigh what should be circulating in your system. High levels of toxins produced and then not removed, lead to colds and flu, pain and muscle tension, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and mental health symptoms such as fogginess, insomnia, depression, anxiety, heart palpitations, and nervous system problems. Focussing on your immune system through times of stress, and developing a strong defence against adrenal fatigue will help. Complete recovery can take a few months, though the positive effects are noticed within 2 weeks. If you feel you may be suffering with this type of immune imbalance, consider getting help, as it only continues to cause gut depletion of nutrients and poor immunity further over time, affecting energy production and your mental state as you age, for life.

MEET THE BLOKE WITH THE BIG STORIES
Local fans of Australian author Peter Watt can hear from the man himself when he visits the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
eter Watt doesn’t mind being called Australia’s Wilbur Smith. In fact, he finds it flattering to be compared to the prolific South African writer. Like Smith, he writes epic historical fiction and boasts a loyal readership. He has sold more than half a million books in Australia and New Zealand alone in the past 15 years and receives daily mail from fans around the world. “Some letters are rather poignant,” he says. “I had an email from a cancer patient in hospital who said, ‘I don’t feel the pain when I read your books’. Other people say, ‘I’ve never read a book in my life, I read one of yours and now I’ve read all of them.’ The Clarence Valley author recently released his 19th book, From the Stars Above, the 12th and final instalment in the Frontier series, his family saga following the lives of the Duffy and Macintosh families during the war in the Pacific in 1942. His knack for writing ripping yarns that are historically accurate and rich with great characters hooks readers, but doesn’t win literary awards. “It doesn’t bother me in the slightest,” Mr Watt says. “I’m seen as an author with no merit because I entertain people. The people who run literary awards prefer authors who use obscure big words with six syllables. I only know words with two syllables and I mightn’t get literary awards, but on the other hand, I reach a lot of people. When I first met [Pan MacMillan’s publishing director] Cate Paterson in 1999, she said, ‘Do you intend to write literary books? I said, ‘No, I just want to write books people want to read.’” A fast-talking, no BS bloke, Mr Watt draws on personal
experience combined with impeccable research to flesh out his addictive stories. “I grew up on a soldier’s settlers block in western New South Wales,” he says. “We had no electricity, no phones. When I was seven or eight years old, I’d be driving a tractor all day ploughing fields. Those were the days when farmers were real farmers, there was no air-con, you just sat out there and sucked in the dust and the diesel. You’d make up stories so you didn’t go mad. We finally got electricity installed and we had a radio. I was listening to the old radio plays back in the 1950s. They were brilliant.” Mr Watt has been a soldier, private investigator, police sergeant, pipe layer, trawler deckhand and advisor to the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary. While he’s contractually
obliged to write a book a year, he squeezes the writing into six months, so he can spend the other six months volunteering with the Australian Rural Fire Service. He’s about to launch a new national legacy service for the families of emergency services volunteers killed in the line of duty, a campaign close to his heart. “It’s something that has been overlooked,” he says. “About 500 volunteers have been killed in the line of duty in Australia. This legacy will cover SES, volunteer bush fire fighters, marine rescue – anyone who’s a volunteer will be covered.” For fans reluctant to say goodbye to the Duffy and Macintosh families, Mr Watt assures them his next series, The Queen’s Colonial, will be just as good. While his hectic schedule rarely affords him time for public talks, when he does meet and greet his fans, he invariably meets wannabe writers hoping to pick up a few writing tips. “The thing is, they’ve got this expectation that writing is a simple process,” he says. “It’s both an art and a science. It’s one per cent inspiration and 99 per cent perspiration. “Reading is essential before you start writing. When I joined the army in 1969, a lot of soldiers would just read. You’d swap books around. I read a lot of Wilbur Smith and I always swore I’d do for Australia what he did for Africa.”
An Evening of Stars with Peter Watt is on at the Beerwah Community Hall on Thursday, May 24 from 6pm. Visit library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

— 10 REASONS WHY THERE’S LOTS TO LOVE ABOUT BRIGHTWATER Stockland’s award-winning Brightwater community has been making waves since the ﬁrst homes started popping up just under a decade ago. The vibrant Mountain Creek enclave has already won the hearts of thousands of residents and the last chance to buy new homes in Brightwater is now available through Stockland’s popular Mainwaring Collection of townhomes. Homebuyers are beneﬁtting from the thriving and mature nature of the community, with the ﬁnal block of land snapped up in in 2017. Here are just 10 of the reasons why Brightwater is feeling the love: 1. Community vibe: if you’re all for a friendly smile and a strong sense of community spirit then Brightwater is the place for you. There are numerous active community groups and plenty of opportunities to meet your new neighbours. 2. Stunning views: it’s hard to miss the 12ha Brightwater Lake which is the community’s pride and joy. Take a kayak for a paddle or picnic in the nearest lakefront park. 3. Waterside exercise: healthy outdoor exercise options are in abundance. Enjoy a walk around the waterways and parkland, take part in a lakeside ﬁtness session, join the gym or sign up to the weekly Brightwater parkrun. 4. Eating out: catch up with friends or take the family out with a range of dining options. Watch the sun set over the lake while enjoying a glass of wine at the Brightwater Hotel. 5. Onsite education: Brightwater has this covered with a highly sought-after state primary school and early learning centre. Other quality schools and tertiary campuses are close by.
6. Retail therapy: all your daily needs are catered for at Brightwater Marketplace, including a supermarket, specialty stores, medical centre and dentist. For serious retail therapy, a number of major shopping centres are within 15 minutes’ drive. 7. Surf’s up: while the tranquil waters of Brightwater Lake are soothing to the soul, it’s also just a short drive to one of the nearest beaches for a sneaky surf. 8. Walkability: a network of walking and cycle paths throughout the community join to other neighbourhoods and link to the coastal edges. There’s also a ‘walking school bus’ program so children can safely walk to school. 9. Natural attraction: ﬁnding your zen is easier when there’s plenty of natural inspiration. Brightwater is located next to Mooloolah River National Park and is bounded by environmental reserves and waterways. 10. Location, location: with so many good things going on in Brightwater itself, it’s easy to forget just how close you are to major facilities on the Coast. The Sunshine Coast Health Precinct and future Birtinya Town Centre are less than 10 minutes away while Sunshine Coast Airport is just a 20 minute drive. The ﬁnal stage of the Mainwaring Collection of townhomes at Brightwater, the Aﬃna release, comprises 36 stylish three and four bedroom designs situated across the lake from shops, cafes and the Brightwater Hotel.

DIVE THE REEF
The stunning Mossman River to another level. And that’s before we even get started on meals. Award-winning chef Spencer Patrick’s menu offers a nod to his British roots in a colonial style setting. Enjoy cocktails under antique chandeliers before feasting on crisp pigs ears with apple sauce, mouthwatering sesame yabbie toasts splashed with chilli mayonnaise or whipped smoked salmon on crispbread. We enjoy the day’s outstanding cut of beef, with truffled green beans, smoked mash and mustard. For dessert, it’s a delicious pudding of hay (yes, hay) ice-cream, caramelised white chocolate and rainforest honeycomb. If hay ice-cream doesn’t tickle your tastebuds, try
the pudding with local Daintree chocolate, salted caramel, crushed cookies and milk ice-cream (to share or not). Probably not. Visit sheratongrandmirageportdouglas.com.

LOCAL DIRECTOR’S MOMENT IN THE SUN Nambour boy Chris Sun will walk the red carpet with pride at the national premiere of his new horror flick Boar. He spoke to My Weekly Preview ahead of the event, where the film’s stars will mix with locals on Currie Street. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
big pig with terrifying tusks and a taste for blood, clueless city folk out in the Australian bush – what could possibly go wrong? Add John Jarratt to the mix and you’ve got the makings of a cult Aussie horror film that has distributors around the world salivating like man-eating monsters. On May 19, the national premiere of the film Boar is set to make headlines, not because it’s a tad treasonous to delight in buckets of blood and gore on the same day Harry and Megs get married, but because it’s the scariest, Aussiest horror film since Wolf Creek. An all-star cast featuring Ernie Dingo, Nathan Jones, Roger Ward, Hugh Sheridan, Simone Buchanan, Melissa Tkautz, Steve Bisley and lead John Jarratt face off with the monstrous boar, which will no doubt be the star attraction when it’s unveiled at the red carpet event on Saturday. And in an endearing move by writer and director Chris Sun, the premiere will be held in his childhood town of Nambour instead of a major city, with Mr Jarrett arriving in a beaten up old ute rather than a limousine. “I’m going to walk the red carpet as if I’m walking into the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood,” Mr Sun says. “We just want to go out and show off our film and celebrate with the community who helped make it.” “I’m very loyal to the Sunny Coast,” he says. “All my films have been shot here and there’s nothing better than a powerhouse company like Universal Pictures saying, ‘why not do it in your home town’? “Nambour is on the way back up again, trying to become the little hub for entertainment. It’s got a beautiful cinema now, a brand-new 350-seat cinema. You’d be mad not to premiere it in such a great location. I’m excited.” Based in Buderim, Mr Sun has been making horror films and running a props company, Slaughter FX, on the Sunshine Coast for many years. He gained notoriety with his 2014 film Charlie’s Farm, which starred Tara Reid. But interest in Boar eclipsed Mr Sun’s previous work after its overseas premiere at the Brussels International Fantasy, Fantastic, Thriller and Science Fiction Film Festival in April. Offers for Mr Sun to direct in Hollywood are now rolling in.

“Boar has opened up a lot of doors for me. It has now been selected by some of the largest genre festivals and some of the biggest distributors around the world. Not only do we have Universal Pictures Australia, we now have all these bigger distributors around the world. Shoreline Entertainment has had 220 screener requests from distribution companies around the world for Boar. “My partner says to me all the time, ‘the struggle is the glory’. With all the struggle and hard work, it’s finally paid off. These different pitches are coming out of America and people are taking me very seriously as a horror or genre filmmaker.” Shot in Kandanga in the Mary Valley and three years in the making, Boar’s theatrical release will bring attention to the region when it’s screened around Australia, with international release dates due later in the year and in 2019. “It’s the little film that could,” Mr Sun says. “We went through some troubles and we managed to complete it. Now I’ve done one big circle back to Nambour. The month after the
premiere, I’m off overseas promoting it.” Mr Sun encourages fans to turn up to the red carpet event in Currie Street, outside the Majestic Cinemas, from 4pm onwards and says there will be a large screen set up with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews to entertain the crowd as the stars arrive. “Councillor Greg Rogerson, he’s bent over backwards to make this happen,” Mr Sun says. “He’s like my adopted dad. “He’s been such a huge supporter of this premiere being in Nambour. When I went to council and said, ‘look, I’ve only got short notice, I know this is a big ask but I’d like to shut down Currie Street’, Rogo didn’t shake his head, he said ‘let’s do it’. All these people from council came on board, Visit Sunshine Coast came on board and Big Screens Australia came on board.” It will be a triumphant moment for a boy from the wrong side of the tracks. “I wasn’t a perfect child, but I came out good,” he says. “We all grew up running amok. Nambour life was great, I wouldn’t change anything for the world. I have a lot of good memories in Nambour and I also have a lot of sad memories. Unfortunately, most of my close friends have passed away. “I’m calling this the premiere that Nambour built – it’s one of their own doing something and doing something good. Hopefully it will inspire up-and-coming artists in Nambour to know they can do anything.”

LOONY LONDON TRADITIONS
HOMO SAPIENS LOVE A GOSSIP
Sami Muirhead meets members of The Serpentine swimming club who swim year-round in the icy waters of the famous London lake.
Richard O’Leary is fascinated by a book that traces the history of homo sapiens from the Stone Age to today, but warns, it’s not for everyone.
s you read this (thanks, Mum), Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be embarking on their married royal life together. I love love and I am writing my column from London this week (while pinching myself ). My workplace, Mix FM radio, has sent me and Toddy to cover the royal wedding. A dream come true. But in the lead-up to the wedding, we have been soaking up the charms of London. Hyde Park has stolen my heart and offered me such serenity every day. I always love nature when I travel, and Hyde Park is the most stunning area at this time of year, with squirrels running in the green grass and country flowers in shades of pink and mauve blooming everywhere. We stumbled across a group of swimmers in The Serpentine lake in Hyde Park who stopped me in my dreamy tracks. I could not believe these white British bodies were willingly jumping into the water where only swans and ducks are brave enough to go. Even in summer, the water is really cold. Roz Stoople has been a member of the club for 50 years. Being a member means you have to attend Saturday morning race days and plunge into the near freezing water year around. It is as far removed from Nippers at our blue and yellow beaches as I can imagine. “It is okay weather wise for me to swim
most of the year, but a few Christmases ago the ice on top of the lake cut my arms as I was swimming in the lake,” says Roz. “Many people think we are crazy, but the friendships I have made here over the decades are priceless and the craziness bonds us. “I also believe the cold water keeps us young,” adds the 82-year-old. The worrying part is the fact Roz thinks this is a sensible thing to do. The club was established in 1864 and members say the sense of camaraderie is strong. The club also does not tolerate anyone who feels the cold. If you Google the club, you will see the rules state that while some external events are wetsuit compulsory and people need to use them for training, the club doesn’t consider the use of wetsuits to be within the true spirit of a year-round swimming club. Diving into freezing water in the middle of London without a wetsuit seems plain bonkers to me, and yet I was totally smitten with the club and its members. I told them with happiness that on the other side of the world, we have many clubs who swim in the ocean every morning at 5am. In a smug tone, I said our water temperature was tropical and we were much better off than them. I was told promptly in response there are no sharks, stonefish or jellyfish in the Hyde Park lake. Touché!

may be seven years late* but I would like to nominate Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind as the book of the year. Before I start, I should warn those of you who don’t believe in evolution to save yourselves a few minutes and a lot of frustration by skipping this column – it will also save you from writing to me and complaining about my commie, politically correct and anti-Church biases. Readers should also know the book was written by a gay Israeli vegan, so any homophobic, anti-Semite, meat lovers may also wish to turn the page as well. For those of you who are left, Harari provides a helicopter view of history from the time of our Stone Age ancestors to the present day, with homo sapiens the heroes and villains of the story. The book is divided into four parts: the cognitive revolution (c. 70,000 BCE, when homo sapiens evolved imagination), the agricultural revolution which he describes as history’s biggest fraud (c. 12,000 BCE), the unification of humankind (the move towards one global empire) and the scientific revolution (c. 1500 CE). The basic premise of the book is that the members of our species homo sapiens became numero uno because we love a good gossip, which allows us to co-operate in large numbers. Harari believes the other secret to our success is our capacity to believe in things that exist purely in our
imagination, including gods, nations and human rights. Under this premise, our political and economic systems are no different to our religions – his argument, not mine, for those about to send a terse email. Although more than a million copies of this book have been sold – not all the critics have been kind. Philosopher Galen Strawson says the attractive features of the book are overwhelmed by carelessness, exaggeration and sensationalism. Anthropologist Christopher Robert Hallpike says it does not offer any “serious contribution to knowledge”.
“This book will make you think about the big things in life…” Despite that, I am recommending this book to everyone I meet – it’s just so interesting, and intriguing – and makes me question much of what I take for granted. One thing I can guarantee, the book will make you think about the big things in life, and that can’t be bad, can it? * Published in Hebrew in 2011 and then translated into 45 languages. Appeared on The New York Times Best Sellers list and won the National Library of China’s Wenjin Book Award for the best book.
Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

t first glance it might appear there wasn’t much in this year’s Federal Budget, however, closer analysis reveals some attractive structural reforms beyond the tax cuts and planned tax bracket restructuring. Please note that none of the below is legislated and at this stage is a proposal only. Perhaps one of the most significant, yet unheralded, changes involves the means testing of lifetime income products. Much of this needs to be clarified, however initial reading indicates that pooled lifetime income streams will receive concessional treatment from Centrelink. Only 60 per cent of the purchase price will be assessed as an asset until age 84, or for a minimum of five years, and then 30 per cent for the remainder of a person’s life. The rules will also assess only 60 per cent of lifetime product payments as income. For some who are currently ineligible for the age pension due to the assets test, this provides an opportunity to restructure to become eligible for a part age pension. As an example, take the situation of a couple with $1 million assessable assets. They would receive no age pension as they are above the assets test cut off limit (currently $837,000). If they purchased a lifetime income stream for $800,000, leaving $200,000 as liquid accessible assets, then only 60 per cent of the $800,000, or $480,000, plus the $200,000 liquid assets would be counted. Total assessable assets of $680,000 would entitle them to a part age pension and associated benefits.

There have been other worthwhile reforms for the self-managed super fund sector. From July 2019, SMSFs and small APRA funds will be able to increase the number of members from a maximum of four to a maximum of six. Be aware, this may require a trust deed update. Additionally, SMSFs that have three clear audit reports over three consecutive years, and have lodged their annual reports in a timely manner, will be able to move to a three-year audit cycle. This will reduce the compliance costs for SMSF trustees with a good compliance history. Another useful reform proposed from July 2019 is for super fund members aged

STAY HERE FOR ANYWHERE The Anywhere Theatre Festival is right here and there are dozens of performances lined up across the Sunshine Coast in some unusual places. Pop-up poetry, theatrical performances and a blindfolded exploration of the senses are among the Coast events coordinated by Dr Nycole Prowse and Toni Wills, via their company Peripheral Arts. The state-wide festival was held for the first time last year and has already doubled its event count on the Coast. “I really believe it is our lifestyle and our environment that

encourages and fosters this culture of outdoor theatre,” Dr Prowse says. “People tend to gravitate to performances that are in parks or on beaches. The festival features many events in non-conventional spaces. For example, someone is performing on top of a car in Caloundra while another event is being held at the Buderim swimming pool and another is on the beach. These performances are activating the lovely spaces in our region.” For more, visit anywhere.is.

PAST PERFECT Author: Danielle Steele Publisher: PanMacmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane
Yes, it sounds far-fetched, but this is the basis of one of Danielle Steel’s latest offerings. It follows the story of Sybil and Blake Gregory, who leave their successful but predictable Manhattan lives for a change in San Francisco. Blake buys an abandoned historic mansion to call the new family home, but as soon as they move in, they find out it’s not as empty as they first thought. It sounds like the basis for a paranormal thriller, but the author instead chooses to focus on what would happen if the Gregorys and their three children were able to build relationships with the family who had inhabited the same home a century earlier. Past Perfect is a pleasant read, although it is somewhat pedestrian and doesn’t really pack any punch.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNS AT AFFORDABLE PRICES
VERTICAL VILLAGE ON SHOW AT BIRTINYA
T Residents enjoy five-star facilities at Nature’s Edge Buderim
idden in the foothills and surrounded by thriving rainforest, Nature’s Edge Buderim is an exclusive over-50s community offering architecturally designed homes at affordable prices. Award-winning architect Mark Hudson designed the home collection with nature in mind, while maintaining the structural integrity that has become synonymous with the Nature’s Edge Buderim name. With prices starting at $479,000, this is affordable luxury at its best. There are no exit fees, no stamp duty and no body corporate fees, so if you decide to sell you keep 100 per cent of the capital gain. Home prices are less than the Buderim median, which makes selling the family home and buying a new home at
Nature’s Edge an attractive option. The five-star $4 million Leisure Centre is now open, with a teppanyaki barbecue on the expansive deck, a cinema, bar, library, billiards table, massage and beauty therapy room, semi-commercial kitchen, gymnasium, spa and 20-metre heated Grecian-style pool. At Nature’s Edge Buderim, the lifestyle is resort-style every day. Residents love the peace of mind that comes from knowing they can lock up and leave to head out on their next great adventure, knowing that their homes will be secure on their return.

he first display apartments in Stockland’s $63 million landmark vertical retirement village at Birtinya are now open. Birtinya Retirement Village is an eight-storey design offering a new style of connected and convenient living in the heart of the Oceanside Kawana precinct. The display apartments feature open-plan layouts with extensive natural light, eye-catching timber elements and spacious balconies to capture ocean breezes. Stockland regional development manager for retirement living Pauline Barton says the apartments have been styled to demonstrate the latest trends in homewares and accessories. “Our approach is all about creating warm, inviting and practical spaces that display the size and quality of homes on offer at Birtinya Retirement Village,” she says. “Each apartment comes with all the mod-cons such as quality brand appliances, air-conditioning, and access to superfast broadband internet.” The village also includes secure undercover parking for each apartment, guest parking for visitors, beautiful manicured gardens and a unique twostorey clubhouse and wellness centre with gym, yoga studio, hair salon, bar lounge, billiards room and resort pool.
An onsite allied health professional will ensure residents will have access to health education sessions, tailored exercise programs and a range of group fitness classes including yoga and tai chi. Award-winning Sydney architecture and interior design firm Luchetti Krelle has added design flair to the interior of the clubhouse to promote an active lifestyle. Due for completion in mid-2018, Birtinya Retirement Village provides a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, offering stunning views of Lake Kawana and the Glass House Mountains. The village is pet friendly with a dog park to be constructed in nearby Viridian Park, and is just a short walk to Bokarina Beach, the hospitals and other health services of the Oceanside Health precinct and the future Birtinya Town Centre. “Retirement Living has taken a new direction on the Sunshine Coast so anyone looking to make a move should take the time to inspect these delightful display apartments,” Ms Barton says. “Downsizing does not mean foregoing the high life at Birtinya Retirement Village.”

FORMER HIGH-FLYER TOUCHES DOWN AT LAKESIDE
alcyon Lakeside newcomer Peter Hitchcock spent almost half of his 40-year public service career rubbing shoulders with premiers, prime ministers, ambassadors and even royalty. The former accountant’s role as a senior protocol officer for Queensland’s Department of the Premier and Cabinet made him responsible for rolling out the red carpet for the Government’s VIP guests between the early 1980s and 2000. Mr Hitchcock worked under successive premiers, from Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen to Peter Beattie, arranging everything from airport pick-ups and hotel drop-offs for dignitaries to official receptions and state funerals. The job also required him to organise trips and escort VIPs to key Queensland destinations, ranging from dusty outback towns to the spectacular Whitsunday Islands and the tropical Far North. He survived the massive post-Fitzgerald Inquiry shake-up of the public service that followed the election of the Goss Government in 1989. “It was a big changing of the guard,”
Peter and Barbara Hitchcock Mr Hitchcock recalls. The Goss era brought him into close contact with the new premier’s inner circle, which included future prime minister Kevin Rudd and future federal treasurer Wayne Swan. And he remembers helping to organise former prime minister Paul Keating’s grand opening of the Waltzing Matilda Centre in the western Queensland town of Winton in 1995. “There wasn’t a lot of accommodation in
FIT, FUN AND FANTASTIC
town, so we had all these dignitaries staying in tents,” Mr Hitchcock says. “It was funny to see them all emerging from their tents in black tie suits and ball gowns to attend an official event. “I don’t think Longreach Airport had ever had so many private jets parked on its tarmac.” Later, he would be involved in a visit by prime minister John Howard to Brisbane to launch a bid to bring back the trams, and he also had a small part in US president Bill Clinton’s private ‘R&R’ visit to Port Douglas with first lady Hillary in 1996. On the royal front, Mr Hitchcock remembers people jostling to get a seat at a Brisbane reception for the Queen during one of her Australian visits. Mr Hitchcock’s other royal encounters included the Crown Prince of Thailand and his daughter in 1999, and the King and Queen of Nepal, who travelled to the Sunshine State with a 200-strong entourage.

UNITS BECOMING A POPULAR CHOICE AS COAST POPULATION GROWS With Queensland’s population hitting the five million mark, experts say the housing market is set to benefit. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he latest Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows Queensland’s projected population is set to reach five million this month, translating to a strong demand for property throughout the state. REIQ chairman Rob Honeycombe says the real estate market, and the wider economy, will benefit from such strong growth. “Queensland grew by 81,000 people last year, and we were the most popular state for internal migration, growing more than any other state in the year to September 2017,” he says. Overseas migration added 31,000 to Queensland’s population, which was almost 40 per cent of all new residents in the year to September 2017. “Last year, $54 billion of Queensland residential real estate was bought and sold,’’ Mr Honeycombe says. “Our popularity means demand for housing is growing and this is good news for some of our weaker markets. Of course, there are pockets where housing supply is tight and this population growth is placing
Alaine Hurman and Cliff Smith pressure on markets such as the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast, where prices are rising steady and vacancy rates are at historic lows. “These areas would benefit from increased supply and, in fact, both the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast have additional levels of supply coming to market
in the near future.” With more people moving to the region seeking a sea change and waterfront living, unit developments surrounding the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and health precinct are becoming magnets for both owner-occupiers and investors. Local developer RGD Group’s North
Shore, Salt, Waterline and Aquarius at Oceanside Kawana have achieved record sales, with 240 waterfront apartments adjacent to the new hospital being sold across the four sites over the past 24 months. Former Palmview residents Cliff Smith and Alaine Hurman are among many locals who have realised the benefits of the precinct, having already bought an apartment to live in and one to rent out. They have also bought a third off the plan for RGD’s latest development – Southbank. Mr Smith says they first came across RGD’s North Shore and Waterline projects in October 2015 and immediately, decided to plan their “sea change” from small acreage to take advantage of the perfect combination of a lifestyle location that is also close to everything. “We wanted more time to enjoy the cafes, restaurants, shops and green space areas from a waterfront location with spectacular lake and ocean views,” he says. “It wasn’t a hard decision because it’s so close to major infrastructure and the planned CBD is a real positive for future asset and rental growth.”

PROPERTY Ms Hurman says the apartments had everything they needed, from the spacious and practical design of the kitchen to the amount of storage throughout. “The wrap-around waterfront balconies offer several outdoor living options and the multi-purpose room is perfect for my craft room or Cliff’s train set. “It also has two side by side carparks plus additional basement storage, which was also a high priority for us,” she says. The couple moved into the North Shore development in October and their investment unit in Waterline will be leased out next month. Their ultimate plan will see them reside at Southbank when it is completed, renting out the other two apartments. “Purchasing another unit off the plan makes sense to us because we have seen the other RGD Group apartment buildings in the area fill up before our eyes. Also, we understand that the Sunshine Coast University Hospital still has a way to go before all wards are open,” Mr Smith says. “This is an increasingly desirable place to live, work and play. And we will be enjoying our senior years in a precinct that offers so much.” Mr Honeycombe says people around the country continue to see value in the Sunshine Coast real estate market. “When real estate performs well, everyone benefits,” he says.
VANESSA BRUNTON Carolans First National Real Estate – Nambour
What was your very first job? At 15 I would work at my dad’s Caltex 24 hour service station. I would run out when customers drove into the full service lane, they would sit in their car while I filled the tank, cleaned the front window, checked the oil, put air in the tyres, checked the water in the radiator and battery. It taught me at a young age to always give full service and provide exceptional customer service. How long have you worked in the real estate business?
Nearly 20 years in real estate. Before that, I was a retail fashion manager for Jeanswest in the early years and spent a few years with Westpac bank and in the building industry in Townsville. I love to understand everything about a product and provide that information to my customers then they can make an informed decision to buy. What was the first property you sold? My husband and I moved out of home in our early twenties and built our first home. We decided to buy a bigger home when I was pregnant with our first child and I thought, ‘how hard could it be to sell it myself?’ I placed an ad in the local paper, sold it within 24 hours and tripled our money. That’s when I knew real estate was for me. What was your most recent sale? I just sold 34 De Vere Road, Mapleton for the second time. Lexie De Vere moved into her penthouse three years ago in her nineties, an amazing woman and family with a wealth of knowledge in our area. Col bought the property from me for $530,000, moving from Brisbane looking for a treechange. The new buyers from Sydney, Mike, Carol and Snickers the dog, purchased for $670,000. They are excited to live in such a superb location enjoying the idyllic lifestyle only twenty minutes to the beach.
How have you seen the property market change in the past 12 months? Finally, people are seeing what a wonderful, affordable place Nambour is. I’ve been banging on for over seven years, from when I first started at Carolans First National Real Estate in Nambour, about how great it is. For those who have listened, well done. Your property has grown in value and will continue to do so with the population explosion forecast for our future. How do you see it changing in the next 12 months? Interest rates are the lowest I’ve ever seen. You should be paying something with a three in front. I remember when I paid 17 per cent interest and they dropped to 10 per cent. I thought lock it in that will be the lowest it’ll ever get. My advice is to get in, you need a roof over your head to live.
FINAL WORD >>

with MWP’s man in the water
Finally some commonsense, it was announced that the Margaret River pro stop will be finalised at Uluwatu in Bali, 48 hours after the Bali pro. The reason? Sharks. It is a smoking left hander which I surfed 30 years ago. Yikes! Okay, this weekend it looks like there could be some fun around the traps so get what you can. On some other news I did see a huge shark out at Point Cartwright this week so give it a few weeks before you go out there. Just kidding, or am I?
