FROM THE EDITOR

I

will never forget the early morning phone call I received from my dad on a fateful New Year’s Day six years ago. My younger brother, my best friend, was in an intensive care unit. My dad’s voice, gruff with pain and tears: “He might not walk again, but he’s alive.” Even as I write this, those words send a heartwrenching shiver down my spine. My brother, who was 24 at the time, had made the decision to get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of alcohol. The only reason he was alive was because an off-duty police officer had spotted his overturned car in the scrub on the quiet country road. His spine was broken in two places. We were told it was a miracle he was alive. After a long and painful journey, he made a full recovery. He lives with the consequences. His excruciating nerve pain is a constant reminder of the damage. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t have to live with the reality. It’s a tough way to learn a lesson. Our family was one of the lucky ones – we lived through the nightmare and came out the other side, my beautiful brother now married with his second child on the way. Too many stories end differently. Young drivers aged 17 to 25 account for onequarter of all Australian road deaths – speeding is the biggest killer. Sadly, Woombye father Mark Dixson lost his daughter Jade to a fatal crash earlier this year. He has now set up a not-for-profit organisation campaigning for more effective education for young drivers. Please take the time to read his story on page 10.

QUICK CHAT

FAST TALK Where do you live? Probably the biggest suburb in Australia – Buderim.

what would it be? I would like to see more gyms. I really think there’s not enough here (ha ha ha) .

First job? I worked for a fruit and vegie shop when I was about 12, but thinking back I spent a lot of that time washing the owner’s car, so maybe car cleaner?

Best day in your life and why? I am going to be greedy and say two – the births of both my kids.

What are you currently working on? We’ve just moved our station to the new Kon-Tiki building in Maroochydre, so I’m currently working on finding the phone to my desk. Your family includes? Kylie, my wife, who puts up with so much “radio talk” and my two kids Harper and Brax. First car? Holden HZ Premier. Favourite book? The Dirt by Mötley Crüe would rank up there. If your life was a book, what would be the title? You’re Not Around Forever, So Make The Most Of It NOW. What are you reading now? How Would Love Respond? by Kurek Ashley. I’ve taken loads from it.

Adam Barratt BIO

Adam ‘BarRat’ Barratt, is one half of the successful Sunshine Coast radio breakfast show duo BarRat and Jess on 91.9 Sea FM. Before moving to the region nine years ago he lived in London and has travelled the world. Married with two kids, BarRat has called Buderim home for the past eight years and is in no hurry to change that.

Your greatest regret? The burger I just ate – good at the time, food regret now. What achievement are you most proud of? Being at this point in my life. You are happiest when? I love being on the radio. There are loads of great stories to be told by Sunny Coast locals. And at home. I’m a bit of a homebody.

“You’re going to do fine in life. Live in the moment. Don’t overthink”

Favourite song and why? Hunger Strike by Temple of the Dog. It features my two favourite singers, Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell (RIP) from Soundgarden.

t s o h o i rad

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The moment I moved to London. It opened my eyes to how amazing the world is.

What are you watching right now, would you recommend it, and why? David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. It’s stripped back, with no bells and whistles – just great interviews. When was the last time you played sport and what was it? Indoor cricket about eight years ago. Best advice you’ve been given? The midwife at a birthing class said, “Lads when your wife’s in labour, whatever you do, don’t look ‘down there’ and then say to the doctor ‘does that look normal?’!” What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Warana Beach. A great place to go to clear the mind. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast,

What frustrates you the most? The traffic lights at the intersection of Mooloolaba Road and Syd Lingard Drive. Can never get a green no matter what way I’m heading. How do you deal with your frustrations? Running. Nothing beats it.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? You’re going to do fine in life. Live in the moment. Don’t overthink. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Heston Blumenthal, David Letterman and Dave Grohl (from the Foo Fighters). It would be funny, educational and messy, If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I would pay for all my kids’ schooling so I wouldn’t have to worry about it. I would buy a few outstanding red wines too. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee – double shot cappuccino in a small cup. NRL or AFL? NRL. Manly (even if we’re having a horrible season).

FEATURE STORY

THE DRIVE TO SAVE YOUNG LIVES

It’s great to be young and fearless, but not behind the wheel of car. In the wake of 17-year-old Woombye girl Jade Dixson’s tragic death, her family are calling for change – but what’s the best way to ensure young drivers stay safe on the roads? WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“Instead of having sex education for a whole bloody term, do half a term of driver education” Left: Jade Dixson’s parents Julie and Mark and twin sister Georgia; Above: Jade Dixson

I

t had been raining the afternoon an excited university student took her new car for a spin, a gift from her parents for her 18th birthday. Chuffed to be driving her own car to her best friend’s house, she was speeding as she turned a corner and met an oncoming car veering onto her side of the road. She swerved to avoid a collision and aquaplaned on the wet road. The time between losing control of the car and slamming into the tree seemed to pass in slow-motion. That 18-year-old was me, and while I escaped with little more than a bruised ego, I still have pangs of guilt about writing off the car my parents so generously bought me so I could get myself to uni. But I’m grateful for that crash. I had no concept of the danger I was to myself and other motorists. I used to drive like a bat out of hell and it was the wake-up call I needed. Sadly, many young drivers don’t get that wake-up call until it’s too late. Young drivers aged 17 to 25 account for one-quarter of all Australian road deaths, despite representing only 10 to 15 per cent of drivers. A 17-year-old driver with a P1 licence is four times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than a driver over 26 years.

Woombye man Mark Dixson’s beloved 17-year-old daughter Jade became one of those tragic statistics on March 27. Mr Dixson has set up a not-for-profit organisation called Jade’s Legacy (Juvenile Attitude Defensive Education) to advocate for more effective education for young drivers, particularly at school, and to lobby government for tougher laws. The family is heartbroken, but trying to create something positive from their loss. “My kids come home and say they’re teaching sex education and languages at school,” Mr Dixson says. “Teach them English and maths and real-life skills about how to drive a vehicle. Instead of having sex education for a whole bloody term, do half a term of driver education. You need a whole set of teachers to teach that and hopefully that will happen down the track.” Jade’s Legacy will be launched on June 8 and a fundraiser will be held at Corbould Park on July 15 to help fund what the Dixsons hope will become a game-changing campaign. RACQ Motoring Advice manager Joel Tucker says there are various in-school road safety education programs available to Queensland schools. “It is up to schools to choose which programs best suit their students and if they

can fit them into their curriculum,” he says. But that’s a big IF. The school curriculum is already so crammed, it’s difficult for schools to implement the level of driver education Mark Dixson and others are calling for. RACQ has instigated the Streets Ahead and Docudrama school-based education campaigns, and the Queensland Government funds RACQ to deliver Docudrama to 50 Queensland schools each year. “While we don’t include in-car training in our programs, Docudrama highlights the risks and consequences involved with unsafe driver behaviour and gives young Queenslanders (Year 11 and 12) the tools to help make safer choices and avoid unsafe situations altogether,” Mr Tucker says. “If you start introducing in-vehicle training in schools, that’s going to have a cost associated with it. Do the parents pay for that? If that’s the case, the time frames and things like that have to suit them. That’s one of the barriers as to why you don’t see that rolled out across schools. “Australia is seen as having a good graduated licensing system. All the changes we’ve got were introduced in 2007. An evaluation has been done and shown it has saved lives.”

But clearly, we still have a problem and some people are cashing in on it. So-called ‘defensive driving’ or ‘advanced driver training’ schools are legally able to operate with no government accreditation, taking money from parents who think they’re sending their kids along to a course that will help them be safer drivers when in fact, the opposite may be true. Mr Tucker is careful to distinguish the difference between actual defensive driving – which is learning how to stay out of danger on the roads – and advanced driver training targeted to young people as ‘defensive driver training’, but which may teach things like power slides and skids on wet roads. Mr Dixson has concerns: “A lot of them are teaching them the wrong thing. They’re putting them on skid pads and teaching them to do burnouts. The Queensland Government has been pretty slack and done nothing about that over the years.” A spokesperson for the Department of Transport and Main Roads confirmed to My Weekly Preview that schools teaching defensive driving don’t require accreditation. “Defensive driver training that incorporates advanced driving skills (for example, involving skid training) is not a myweeklypreview.com.au

28/05/2018 2:30:17 PM


FEATURE STORY requirement of the licensing process and we do not require these providers to be accredited, nor do we monitor them,” the spokesperson says. “While defensive driving courses can provide experienced drivers with some additional skills, we do not support defensive driving courses for young drivers. Research shows defensive driving courses for young, inexperienced drivers can actually be counterproductive. There is evidence that teaching advanced practical skills to young drivers (particularly males) can lead to overconfidence, and novice drivers may decide to drive in a risky situation, thinking they have the necessary skills.” Garry Church is the president of Road Trauma Services QLD, a Cooroy-based organisation that provides support for families involved in car crashes. A forensic crash investigator on the Sunshine Coast for many years, he has his own ideas on how we can lower the risks. “We need to explain to these kids that the important thing with driving is not to get into trouble in the first place,” he says. “When something goes wrong at high speeds, you’re not on a racetrack – you’ve got other cars coming towards you, trees around you, you’ve got no hope of getting out of that unless its sheer luck.” Mr Church is haunted by the devastation he’s seen on the roads and says the government needs to get tougher as a matter of urgency, such as restricting the types of cars P-platers are legally allowed to drive. “I’m very sceptical when it comes to government and road safety,” he says. “They say we put all this money into road safety and I’m thinking, where? If you want to cut down the road toll, you could do this easily. First, take the speed cameras off, which is no more than revenue raising. Put police back on the road in high profile marked cars. Look at the road toll – speed cameras don’t work.

“The other thing I do not agree with is the licensing. When someone loses their licence through points, once the disqualification period is up, their licence is handed back. “They should be made to re-sit the whole thing again. Evidently they didn’t learn the first time. They should double the fee and the time they’ll have to spend on their P-plates.” Mr Tucker says governments have to balance safety regulations with the need for mobility, especially in areas with limited public transport, and this is something that would require public consultation. “We’d prefer to see better enforcement and application of the penalties we already have. The RACQ has always promoted an increased road police patrol presence to catch people doing the wrong thing. That’s a key issue.”

normal for teenagers to want to spend time with their friends, to show off, to push boundaries and not want to voluntarily comply with the rules. The problem is if they’re doing it in a car.” Dr Scott-Parker says we need around five years experience before we can consider ourselves experienced drivers, and that the 100 hours of driving experience, which learner drivers must complete before they receive their P-plates, isn’t hitting the mark because its mostly done to and from school, rather than a variety of scenarios. “Think about how they’re going to drive, who they’re going to drive with, why they’re driving and what they’re driving in. Do that practice now, when you’re the extra set of eyes and an extra brain. Take them out in the car and ask them, what are the risks, who could we hurt, why could we hurt them, what could we do to avoid it?” Tech companies are now jumping on board with the introduction of devices like the TomTom LINK 530, which is installed under the dashboard and measures speeding, harsh braking and harsh cornering, as well as vehicle location, and relays the information via an app or online platform to nail-biting parents. The device can’t be disabled or disconnected. But ultimately, Dr Scott-Parker says it’s up to parents to practice tough love and refuse to hand over the keys if they’re at all concerned. “There’s evidence to show the older you are learning to drive as a teenager, the safer you are on the road. If parents know their kids are a little bit young for their age, it’s a good idea to postpone their licence. The older they are, the more their brain has developed. “My son is 18 and doesn’t have his learner licence. He gets called Evel Knievel because he has no fear. To keep him and his friends safe, he’s not getting a licence until he’s a safer kid. A big part of this is recognising you do not have your licence as a right. Don’t let them drive until they’re a little more cooked.”

“Take them out in the car and ask them, what are the risks, who could we hurt, why could we hurt them…” Dr Bridie Scott-Parker

Dr Bridie Scott-Parker, a senior research fellow at the University of the Sunshine Coast, has been studying young driver safety for 13 years and says we need to look at the problem differently. “I think we need to reward safe driving behaviour,” she says. “You’ve got a group of people who are young and problematic. We need to look after them in a completely different way. We could reward them with lower insurance premiums, cheaper health insurance, lower prices for cars – there are many options. Dr Scott-Parker is wary of mandating driver training at school as students might simply disengage. Instead, she says we need to teach road safety in all its guises from birth. “The key is not to talk at them,” she says. “We should be talking with them. It’s perfectly

facts 45 per cent of all young Australian injury deaths are due to road traffic crashes Of all hospitalisations of young Australians, almost half are drivers involved in a road traffic crash and another quarter are passengers The biggest killer of young drivers is speeding and around 80 per cent of those killed are male The current Queensland graduated licensing system (GLS) dictates that P1 drivers are not allowed to carry more than one passenger under the age of 21 (if not an immediate family member). The Department of Transport and Main Roads has created a new online learner driver training and assessment program called PrepL, now being piloted with the aim to make it available to all Queenslanders in the second half of this year. It is designed to improve young learner driver education by focusing on developing safe driver behaviours and attitudes. It will ultimately replace the current 30-question written test.

THE BOAR MOVIE PREMIERE Nambour had a taste of Hollywood glam with the red carpet premiere of Boar, a film written and directed by local filmmaker Chris Sun. Iconic Aussie actor John Jarratt arrived in a pigging ute, but it was a limo all the way for Sun and his family. Currie Street was closed to traffic and there was a buzz in the air as guests partied at the Majestic Cinemas before and after the film. Photos: Emily Bickhoff

REVIEW

GEVA MENTOR CELEBRATES 150TH GAME Sunshine Coast Lightning captain Geva Mentor celebrated her 150th national league game on the weekend, when the Lighting took on the Adelaide Thunderbirds at USC Stadium. The milestone comes after a decade spent playing in Australia for teams including Melbourne Vixens and Adelaide Thunderbirds. Ms Mentor says winning the Suncorp Super Netball championship in 2017 is one of her career highlights. “Possibly my biggest learning has been to avoid taking anything for granted, because anything can happen on the court and you never know what’s around the corner,” she says.

COL’S NEW LIFE BEGAN ON WORLD TURTLE DAY Sea Life Sunshine Coast celebrated World Turtle Day in shell-tacular style, with the successful release of Col, a juvenile green sea turtle. Col’s release marked a new milestone for the Coast attraction, with 1000 successful releases since 1989. In March this year, Col – who was named after his rescuer Coolum Coast Care volunteer Colin Ingram – was found on Marcus Beach on his back and in distress. After multiple attempts to place the hatchling in the water failed, Col was taken to Sea Life Sunshine Coast and placed in ‘turtle rehabilitation’ where animal health manager Emily Thomas began Col’s road to recovery. Two months later, Col was released off the Mooloolaba coastline, close to the Eastern Australian Current.

Redefining Beauty, a photographic exhibition exploring the many faces of genetic difference, is set to launch on June 6 at Sunshine Plaza’s new Amaroo Street precinct. The exhibition, featuring images by awardwinning New York photographer and advocate for changing societal attitudes, Rick Guidotti, is the first of its kind in Australia focussing on children and adults affected by genetic conditions located on the 18th chromosome. The images were captured at various iconic Sunshine Coast locations by Mr Guidotti, founder of the global human rights organisation Positive Exposure. The exhibition will be open until July 15.

$595,000 100,000TH TREE PLANTED TO AID RIVER SYSTEMS A rehabilitation program designed to improve water quality and increase biodiversity in the Sunshine Coast’s river catchments has reached a significant milestone. More than 100,000 trees have been planted in the River Rehabilitation Program since it began in 2009. When the project is completed, around 134,000 trees will have been planted. Around 36,000 trees will be planted along the Mooloolah River this year, involving 18 landholders and three council sites. Areas protected through the program include the Mary, Maroochy and Mooloolah River catchments along with the Bells Creek and Currimundi Creek areas.

More than 90 community groups across the region are set to receive a welcome financial boost, with more than $595,000 in the Community Grants Program endorsed by the Sunshine Coast Council. One of those set to benefit is the Sunshine Coast Arts Industry Precinct, which has been awarded $10,000 through the Community Development category towards the Old Ambo Media Makers Pilot Project. This funding will assist in the establishment of a multi-function multimedia studio space at the Old Ambulance Station facility in Nambour. Applications for the next round of major grants will open on July 23 and close September 3.

THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS The thousands of Sunshine Coast residents who give freely of their time to help the community were in the spotlight last week for National Volunteer Week. These volunteers often work tirelessly behind the scenes with little concern about recognition. A number of events were held across the Coast for the wider community to give their thanks to our volunteers. This year’s theme was ‘Give a little, change a lot’. Community Portfolio councillor Jenny McKay says Coast residents have a remarkable history of volunteering their time and giving back to the community life and it is important to recognise their service. myweeklypreview.com.au

PROFILE

A NEW STAGE She’s a busy mum, popular TV host and actor, but Julia Morris has still found the time to bring her acclaimed comedy show to the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Y

ou would think one of the country’s most renowned comedians would go all-out for her 50th birthday, making it a star-studded affair with all the trimmings. But the fact Julia Morris chose to spend the day with her “lovely husband” Dan Thomas and their daughters Ruby and Sophie, making a birthday cake in something of a Nailed It! challenge inspired by the Netflix show of the same name, just goes to show how down-to-earth she is. Whether they nailed the big round blue cake – which featured a large marzipan unicorn that “was drunk on sugar” after taking a huge bite out of the side of the cake – is up for discussion. “The girls were confident, but they are nine and 11, so they are much closer to the bench,” Ms Morris quips. Speaking to My Weekly Preview in the lead-up to her acclaimed Lift and Separate Golden Jubilee Tour arriving on the Sunshine Coast, Ms Morris (who is also known as the Lady of the Manor of Gosforth – she has the paperwork to prove it) says she “could not be more delighted” to celebrate the milestone. “I have had to do a bit of work on my mental health over the last 10 years and I am in a wonderful place now. Why arrive [at 50] carrying baggage? Arrive with happy arms,” she says. From the outside, Ms Morris appears to have it all. Her successful career has spanned more than three decades and has seen her share the stage with comedy royalty including Richard Pryor, Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Lewis, Dame Edna and the late Robin Williams. She is a two-time Silver Logie nominee for her role on the five seasons of Nine Network’s House Husbands, is the co-host of Network Ten’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and has won Helpmann Awards for her comedy stage shows, all while raising a family.

But Ms Morris says the glamorous lifestyle we think she lives is “smoke and mirrors”. “People say I’m living the dream, but I’m living a 24/7, 365 put-your-foot-on-thethrottle extravaganza. Because the second you slow down, it’s absolutely concurrent with a slide in success in the entertainment industry for sure,” she says. “If you are Penélope Cruz and you get millions for your work, you can do without the wages coming in for a while. But ours is like any ordinary household and I need to keep working. “I get the incredible luxury of being able to focus on my work because I’ve left one of my jobs at home with Dan. He has the job of mummy while I’m away and he is a very unusual man in that he is absolutely not only fantastic with the kids, but he is also fantastic in our home, so when I come home there is no big handover and a list of all the things I need to do.” Maintaining friendships has been one of Ms Morris’ biggest challenges, with very little

time left to connect with her gal pals on a regular basis. “Everyone says something’s got to give and my friends are very kind with me and are very active in keeping our friendships alive. I, on the other hand, sometimes feel shameful in my contact, but I make sure that whenever I do get the time, I get together with my girls,” she says. Ms Morris says this year’s season of I’m A Celebrity…, which she has co-hosted with Dr Chris Brown since 2015, was the most explosive by far and she was super proud to see fellow comedian Fiona O’Loughlin take home the crown of Queen of the Jungle. “I was absolutely thrilled because it’s really hard for anyone to beat a sportsman in this country, let alone a couple of them. In a sheer numbers game, oftentimes the males are more popular than the girls, so her win was a triumph on so many levels.” The long hours filming in the jungle suck out any desire to be “let off the leash and go out for a night” once each day wraps up.

“It’s so intense. It’s 14-hour days, six days a week, so I tend to steer clear of all grown-up details outside of filming, but I definitely get emotionally involved with what’s happening with the contestants because you are essentially in a bubble away from home,” she says. Her next project is a re-hash of popular British dating show Blind Date. Ms Morris will host the Network Ten show, which will begin filming in July. “It’s super exciting and it’s going to be hilarious. I’m a big fan of Cilla Black’s version of the show, which I watched religiously when I lived in the UK for eight years,” she says. “I’m definitely going to be winding [the contestants] up. I will say that we are taking the leap of having all sorts of age groups and different types of couples and I am super proud of being part of a wild, new frontier.” In the meantime, she will be delighting in some “lazy mummy touring” with a host of Thursday, Friday and Saturday night shows spread out over a few months throughout regional Australia. Her Lift and Separate show sold out in capital cities around the country last year and Ms Morris says she has chosen her “all-time favourite” places to tour to this time around. “The Sunshine Coast is part of a particularly delicious leg of the tour because I have a number of faves in a row,” she says. “I’m not setting out to teach anybody how to live their lives, the show has many, many laughs and I’ve had a few complaints from women who’ve said that level of laughs hasn’t helped them when sitting in those plush seats.”

NO PLACE LIKE HOME FOR LOCAL ENTREPRENEUR Start-up founder returns to the Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

with Michael Rowland

T

he Sunshine Coast is a hot spot for entrepreneurs creating innovative start-ups that are adding value to the economy. One of those entrepreneurs is Mountain Creek resident Duncan Barker, who has caught the eye of a number of organisations that are interested in the many and varied applications of his wearable technology. Mr Barker’s business, Near Field Creative, started off as Confirm Denied in 2016 and has evolved from a clothing brand with designs aimed at the video gaming community to a world-first commercialisation of wearable technology in the fashion industry. “I loved the video game industry and had engaged gaming artists to create unique and eye-catching designs,” he says. “But then I asked myself how I could improve and innovate to create something truly unique. “The idea of incorporating technology into clothing seemed like a logical step.” Near Field Creative T-shirts feature a chip that is embedded into the fabric that can be pre-loaded with links to any content from a website link to a video, app or song. When someone scans the chip with their smartphone, the content is immediately opened on their phone, allowing businesses to connect their customers to useful information, and bands to connect fans with their latest music video. These are just a few of the many applications this type of wearable technology can have. Mr Barker grew up in Buderim and moved to Sydney to “do the corporate thing”, working in a range of industries from retail management to commercial real estate, operations relations and business development for large companies like Wotif, Yahoo and The Executive Centre. “I turned down a job at Dropbox in order to pursue my passion and this start-up, and moved back to the Sunshine Coast for the lifestyle and to spend more time with my family,” he says. “I didn’t realise it at the time, but the Sunshine Coast is perfect for start-ups and from a lifestyle point of view, it doesn’t compare to Sydney. “There is such a push here for innovation – that’s what’s surprised me more than anything. And the support here for local start-up businesses is incredible.” Near Field Creative has partnered with the Innovation Centre, with staff outfitted with tech-enabled uniforms that are programmed to instantly launch the company’s key information on their website as well as the Advance Queensland Hot DesQ website when people tap their smartphones against the shoulder touch point.

Your money questions answered You hear so much about what to do to achieve financial success but what are the things to avoid? (M&G 4560)

Many aspects of financial success are about putting good habits in place early and avoiding traps that can damage your dollar value. So, here are our top five traps to avoid.

Start-up founder Duncan Barker Innovation Centre CEO Mark Paddenburg says Mr Barker has taken up residence at the centre as a result of the partnership. “When you meet a start-up founder like Duncan Barker – with a deep passion to research, innovate and utilise enabling technology to create better outcomes – it makes sense to invite them into our network,” he says. Mr Barker says the centre was always on his radar as a preferred base to scale the business due to its track record of success. “The technology supersedes QR codes and is compatible with Android, Apple and Windows smartphones and more than 80 per cent of smartphones have the technology enabled already,” he says. “We work with Australian suppliers wherever possible and while the wearable technology is imported from overseas, the final product is assembled in Queensland.” And if you are worried about how you would wash a T-shirt with an electronic chip inside, Mr Barker assures wearers that it has been encased in a way that makes it machine-washable and waterproof for the life of the garment, without being bulky or noticeable to the person wearing the shirt. Mr Barker recently attended the Myriad Festival in Brisbane after being selected as one of 10 innovative businesses to represent our region. He is also in talks with a worldwide suit tailor about creating the ultimate tech-enabled business attire that is made to measure and custom programmed to suit the individual and their personal business objectives.

1. Making minimum repayments Whether we’re talking about high-interest debt such as credit cards or longer-term investment debt such as mortgages, making the minimum repayment is good, but not always great. On credit card debt you can end up paying interest of 20% or more, potentially adding thousands of dollars annually to your repayments. Even small increases in your regular mortgage repayments can cut years off the loan and save tens of thousands of dollars in interest along the way. 2. Leaking money to businesses Many businesses are now moving to a subscription or regular repayment model, whether it is for software, TV services or holiday packages, because it seems cheaper and causes you less financial pain in the short term. Those businesses become wealthy over time and you do not. Being aware of these regular outgoings, living a leaner lifestyle and plugging these financial leaks can be the equivalent of adding several percentage points to your investment interest. 3. Spending your redraw or equity Paying extra money into your mortgage is an exceptionally good habit. Constantly redrawing

the available funds, or borrowing on the equity for non-investment purposes, is not. Keeping all of your savings within your mortgage, or in an offset account, will likely save a considerable amount of interest over time. But be sure to set yourself a budget or savings goal to reap the full benefit of your discipline. /DFNLQJIDPLOLDULW\ZLWK\RXU¼QDQFHV We are all guilty at some stage of being less familiar than we should be with the investment mix of our super fund, or the interest rate on our mortgage. But checking in with your finances on a regular basis – monthly, bi-annually or yearly – is a simple way to check things are moving in the right direction and to take action if they are not. This process should always involve all stakeholders, particularly both members of a couple. 5. Prioritising spending rather than investing All great plans begin with a goal. Wealth planning usually begins with a retirement lifestyle goal. A strategy is then set to achieve that goal – perhaps the diversified investment of $100 every week for the next 20 years – and that becomes the absolute priority. Households often prioritise and plan for holidays, new cars, furniture updates and new wide-screen TVs. The fact that a plan is in place means they will likely have those things. But such purchases should only be allowed after the real priority has been taken care of.

SHORT-TERM VERSUS LONG-TERM OIL PRICE

O

il prices have climbed nearly 20 per cent in the year to date, adding to the around 30 per cent gain in second-half of 2017. This has led to very healthy gains for investors in energy shares. The current oil price of nearly $US80 per barrel are well above our forecasts. There are reasons to suggest this could be sustained in the near term, providing upside to energy company earnings and valuations. For the longer term, however, our forecasts assume that prices gravitate back towards the low $US50s, in line with lower break-even levels. Our oil and gas equities coverage currently assumes Brent oil prices averaging around $US65 per barrel in CY18, $US60 per barrel in CY19, and $US55 per barrel in

CY20. The current Brent oil price is some 20 to 40 per cent above these forecasts. The surge in oil prices can be attributed to a number of factors: • Stronger global growth – We estimate this has contributed to global oil demand growth rising from 1.3 per cent to 1.7 per cent in 2017, an increase of 0.3 million barrels per day (mbpd). • OPEC production cuts – These have offset some increased supply from non-OPEC countries. Under the OPEC directive,

“Our forecasts assume that prices gravitate back towards the low $US50s” members – along with selected non-OPEC countries such as Russia – are targeting a 1.8mbpd cut to production. These cuts are expected to remain in place until the end of 2018 (we note OPEC meets next on 22 June). • Sanctions on Iran – The US has withdrawn from the Iran nuclear pact and is re-imposing economic sanctions on Iran. This could see oil exports from Iran drop by 0.5mbpd.

• Periodic geopolitical risks – The US/North Korea relationship has been precarious at times, while simmering tensions in the Middle East (for example, in Israel, Iran and Syria), militant attacks in Libya and political struggles in Venezuela threaten to disrupt supply. Demand has thus started to outstrip supply in 2017, which in turn is seeing OECD inventories fall. The above factors could also see oil prices trend towards a more bullish scenario of $US80 to $US90 per barrel in 2018, according to our global research counterparts. Beyond 2018, though, the above factors may not persist, and higher spot prices may also induce investment in production and a return of supply. For the longer term, our global research counterparts have looked to break-even prices (a price that allows revenues generated to meet obligations), as guidance for a more sustainable oil price. In their view, break-even settings could see oil prices gravitate back to the low $US50s eventually.

MY OPINION

WEDDING FEVER

THE ART OF THE INSULT

Sami Muirhead’s head is still spinning with memories of the Royal wedding – or she could just be hungover from the after party.

Richard O’Leary says today’s opinion writers and shock jocks could sledge with more style, like Banjo Patterson and Henry Lawson did 120 years ago.

F

irst of all, I owe an apology for being missing in action from my weekly column. As the perennial ‘good girl’ I do not think I have ever missed a deadline in my life. I returned to work when my baby was just three weeks old. I continued writing columns and doing radio crosses on my honeymoon. But last week I took a big tumble and did something very human: I simply mucked up. I was in London and Windsor covering the Royal wedding of Harry and Meghan for my radio job and I simply had a total shocker. I was so emerged in the most magical wedding of all time. We camped out at Windsor to get a front row position (in four-degree freezing weather on the Long Walk with hardly any provisions) armed with only my naïve dreams and the constant foul cigarette smoke from the other few tragic idiots who braved the elements as well. Then after some English cheesy toast for brekky and a nip of bourbon, we stood in the surprisingly hot sun for seven hours in our grotty jeans to watch the couple trot past for about six seconds (which I will never forget). This is where my story should have ended. However, I decided to celebrate their nuptials in a raucous pub called The Prince Harry. I partied as if I had in fact married a prince. I also sobbed at that magnificent wedding with tears of pride watching little Harry finally find his own family after losing his mum when he was so young.

I love Meghan’s mother and also bawled every time those cameras showed her sitting stoically by herself. That’s what strong single mums (including my own) do after all. I could not read Doria’s face, if it was one of fear she was handing her daughter over to some strange cult or if it was just one of immense love for her baby daughter. I loved every single bit of the wedding. I think the Royal family brings stability and happiness in a world of quick fixes and short attention spans. The only way in and out of Windsor was by train and the queues were three hours long as 120,000 of us all tried to head back to London. So being a sensible Aussie, I opted to go to the pub. With no sleep, a dose of dehydration and emotional exhaustion, the rest of my time in Windsor is a blur. I lost a shoe and a stack of cash and, I think, my dignity in that 36-hour window. So I am sorry to say I missed my deadline because I was completely overcome with Meghan and Harry Fever. Late at night in bed I find myself wondering what on earth were the words Harry muttered in front of the wedding guests as he gave Meghan his mum’s aquamarine ring. And I often question if Posh Spice or Amal Clooney think of me as often as I think of them in their smashing wedding ensembles. It is one day at a time for me as I strive to return to the straight and narrow and detox myself from wedding fever. Long may you be happily married Harry and Meghan.

‘F

or the bush will never suit you, and you’ll never suit the bush.’ Back in the day, they used to sledge with some style – the above line was written by Banjo Paterson, a stinging barb against his fellow poet Henry Lawson. It was the beginning of a very public stoush in The Bulletin magazine from 1892-93 – Banjo accusing Lawson of being all “doom and gloom” about the Australian bush while Lawson called his literary counterpart a “city bushman” who romanticised the harshness of living outside of Australia’s urban areas. Our two most famous poets exchanged their views in such fine form that the poems written by the men in this battle of words are still published in books today. That’s how I came across Lawson’s response to Banjo’s first salvo: Though the bush has been romantic and it’s nice to sing about, There’s a lot of patriotism that the land could do without – Sort of British workman nonsense that shall perish in the scorn Of the drover who is driven and the shearer who is shorn. What grabbed me most about this literary free-for-all was the quality of the writing and cleverness of the put-downs. Contrast the elegance of those times with the rantings and ravings of today’s

opinion writers and shock jocks. The bile, bullying, and ill-informed bravado. In this era of clickbait it feels like today’s columnists will say anything if the price is right, and whoever pays the piper calls the tune. But maybe the more things change, the more they stay the same. When many years after the ‘Bulletin Debate’ Banjo was asked how the conflict started he quoted his nemesis, Lawson. “We ought to do pretty well out of it. We ought to be able to get in three or four sets of verses before they stop us.” And Paterson admitted he wasn’t oblivious to the financial rewards either. “This suited me all right, for we were working on space, and the pay was very small, so we slam-banged away at each other for weeks and weeks; not until they stopped us, but until we ran out of material.” Now it would be difficult to declare a winner of this bush ballad brouhaha, although Paterson did replace Lawson on the $10 note in 1993 – so maybe it’s only fair he should have the last word: For there’s not much risk of hardship where all comforts are in store, And the theatres are in plenty, and the pubs are more and more. But that ends it, Mr Lawson, and it’s time to say good-bye, So we must agree to differ in all friendship, you and I.

FLU SHOTS IN FULL SUPPLY

NEW MELANOMA STRATEGIES Sweeping changes to national medical guidelines for diagnosing and treating melanoma are set to prevent many lives being lost to the deadly skin cancer. A key component of the updated clinical guidelines, developed by Cancer Council Australia and Melanoma Institute Australia, is the recommended use of a highly effective disease staging procedure to better predict recurrence. Professor John Thompson at Melanoma Institute Australia says it is essential for patients that their treating doctors are guided by the latest evidence on best practice. “The melanoma treatment landscape has changed dramatically in recent years due to extensive and ongoing research and clinical trials, and it is vital that frontline healthcare professionals across Australia are aware of new diagnostic techniques and treatments that are saving lives,’ Prof Thompson says. Recommended is the use of sentinel lymph node biopsy – a minimally invasive procedure that enables clinicians to determine a patient’s risk of melanoma recurrence.

Clinicians are also advised against unnecessarily performing major lymph node surgery. “Recent clinical trial results have shown that complete removal of all remaining lymph nodes, previously the standard treatment recommendation, usually provides no additional patient benefit, and it is no longer standard management,” he says. Other key recommendations included how to identify individuals at high risk of melanoma, and the need for doctors to investigate any lesions that grow or change in size, shape, colour or elevation. – AAP

The federal health minister insists Australia should meet the higher than expected demand for flu vaccines. An extra 800,000 influenza vaccines have been secured and are expected to be available in June and July, before the peak period for the spread of the flu this year. The Federal Government has ordered the additional doses to help keep up with unprecedented demand. Health Minister Greg Hunt said orders from the states were up significantly for this season but the public demand had been even greater. Last year 8.3 million Australians were vaccinated and it has increased to almost 10 million already in 2018. “With the extra 800,000, the advice for the chief medical officer is that we are expecting to meet all of the demand under the national immunisation program,” he told ABC TV. Mr Hunt said Victoria asked for 1.2 million vaccinations and had received 1.3 million.

He also noted advice that this year’s flu season was not expected to be as severe as last year. Australia’s acting chief medical officer Anthony Hobbs has said more vaccines would be ordered if necessary. “We’ll continue to work very closely with the chief health officers of each state and territory to ensure that the vaccine gets to those most in need,” he said. – AAP

Meghan Markle’s beautiful bridal makeup

While not everyone loved her dress, most royal wedding watchers agreed Meghan Markle’s bridal makeup was a triumph. The natural look was just enough to highlight her features and allow her cute freckles and warm personality to shine through. Her makeup artists used a light base, a bronze eye, a subtle swipe of blush and a nude lip. The products used were: Dior Diorshow On Stage Liner in Matte Black, Honest Beauty Truly Kissable Sheer Lip Crayon in Chestnut Kiss, Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara, Dior Backstage Contour Palette, Honest Beauty Crème Blush in Truly Exciting, Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation, Dior Backstage Eye Palette in Warm Neutrals 001, Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer and Dior Lip Glow in Ma Coral.

The 7 most common health complaints that may be causing symptoms of depression, anxiety or ADHD. Do you find yourself irritated, not able to feel excitement, or with constant negative thoughts? Are you having trouble sleeping with overactive thoughts, or waking often through the night? Do you suffer anxiety or depression regularly? Is your child experiencing these sleep and mood issues and having trouble expressing it? There are 7 key underlying triggers which may cause symptoms of anxiety, nervousness, depression, or lack of excitement and motivation for life. Symptoms of stress feeling overwhelming, palpitations, tingling in the hands or feet, irritable bowel syndrome, foggy brain or lack of concentration including ADHD and behavioural problems in children may all be associated. The 7 key common health conditions whilst not originating in the brain, can have a negative impact on brain function, where over time, it may cause a compounding effect that your brain cannot cope well with, leading to long term, and then permanent brainwave pattern changes, affecting your personality, mood, and ability to think, focus and cope with stressful situations, sometimes leading to PTSD.

Research indicates an 89% success rate, with or without medication, these steps improve brain function immeasurably in healthy or affected adults or children within 3-6 months Fortunately it can be simple to address. Patients who have suffered depression for decades have reported to have improved out of sight within a 3-6 month period including sufferers of Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety disorder, PTSD and children with ADHD, then reducing their medication over time. Following restoring all health conditions associated, retraining brainwave patterns is known to have long term sustainable results without the use of medication. Proven with scientific research at an 89% success rate, these steps improve brain function immeasurably in adults or children, regardless of being medicated or not.

unshine Coast musician Mason Hope is setting out on a new adventure, with the release of his latest single and music video Karmic Resolution. The 18-year-old Kuluin resident recently tried out for The Voice, reaching the top 100 artists before being eliminated. He says his latest track, which is already available on all online music platforms, is all about digging deep to answer the big questions. “I am asking the question, ‘do you care?’ ‘Are you working towards a better karma for the world?’,” he says. Mr Hope won the 2016 Gympie Music Muster talent search and was named the 2017 Trans-Tasman Entertainer of the Year. He has performed at various festivals including the Tamworth Country Music Festival and will soon feature in an ABC documentary by Wendy Champagne called Out Loud. While also continuing in his role as national Headspace youth ambassador, Mr Hope will still be able to sneak in some local gigs. See Mason Hope perform at Mets On Kings on June 1 and June 16.

I LOVE YOU TOO MUCH Author: Alicia Drake Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Gillian Read

I enjoyed this book. The story is told from the engaging viewpoint of 13-year-old Paul who is living in Paris with his mother and struggling with the world of adult emotional complications that surrounds him. There is an element of satire and an absence of sentimentality in this coming of age novel. The simple, direct dialogue and candid teenage observations of Paris snobbery and adult relationships expose the adolescent’s raw need to be loved and the loneliness and isolation when this love is not felt. Paul is pushed to the limits of emotional endurance and I did not want to put the book down until I learnt how it ended. A recommended read for young and old. myweeklypreview.com.au

IT’S ALL IN THE SAUCE A successful stir-fry often comes down to the right sauce. And there’s no need to head to the supermarket for a pre-made sauce – with the help of some cupboard staples you can easily create your own. The chefs at London’s Golden Dragon Colindale have revealed their suggestions for how to make some classic Chinese sauces. SATAY SAUCE Crunchy peanut butter, light soy sauce, garlic and chilli will create a great satay sauce. Be flexible with quantities, but two tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter and one tablespoon of soy sauce will be a good basis, then add garlic, chilli and sugar to taste. SOY, GINGER AND GARLIC SAUCE A simple soy-based sauce can be a great accompaniment to both beef and vegetable noodles. Dark soy sauce mixed with finely chopped ginger and minced garlic works particularly well. A dash of sesame oil will lift the sauce to add a great toasty flavour. SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE Despite being a favourite of many, people rarely make sweet and sour sauce at home. Combine the sour ingredients (soy sauce and rice vinegar) with the sweet ingredients (tinned pineapple chunks, tomato sauce and sugar). The balance between sweet and sour is important, so taste as you go.

PLATE OF ORIGIN

FOOD FANATICS T new executive chef of Maroochy RSL, The Gareth Collins, is not new to the celebrity G chef scene. Mr Collins has cooked for c presidents and stars, and recently headed up p ttwo celebrity restaurants for the 2018 Beef Australia expo that featured some of the A culinary world’s biggest names including Curtis c Stone, Dominique Rizzo, Hiroyuki Sakai, Matt S Golinski and Jack Stein. G Mr Colllins has spent more than 34 years in the industry, completing his training in Wales and travelling the world before arriving in Australia, where he has led teams for many acclaimed Brisbane and Sunshine Coast restaurants, including opening Rickys in Noosa, and heading the kitchen at Hyatt Coolum. He has served as personal chef to Clive Palmer and been head chef for Peter Kuruvita at Sheraton Noosa.

recipe TOP TIP If the sauce is looking a little thin, add a teaspoon of cornflour dissolved in water to it and within minutes it should begin to thicken. Alternatively, if it is too thick, add a tablespoon of hot water.

the Night Safari to avoid long queues. The necessities: Singapore has everything you need – state-of-the-art hospitals, supermarkets and easy to use public transport. Eating there: Kids will love a visit to the DC Comics Super Heroes Café. Choose your booth – Superman, Batman and Superwoman are some of the favourites – and dine on food such as The Green Lantern’s Big Dipper Potato. The food is nothing special, but the young ones will love the experience. Staying there: Regent Singapore, A Four Seasons Hotel perfectly blends luxury with family needs. The rooms are spacious, the staff kind and there are six restaurants to choose from. Plus, the kids will love riding in the atrium glass lift. Splurge on the Four Seasons Executive Suite, which features a balcony, bathroom, powder room and separate living and bedroom. Visit regenthotels.com/regent-singapore.

KID-FRIENDLY GETAWAYS From thriving Singapore to Fiji’s beautiful beaches, these family-friendly holiday destinations are hard to beat. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

R

esearching holiday hot spots for your family vacation? Here are three of our favourite child-friendly destinations that are sure to meet all the requirements of fun, food and culture.

SINGAPORE Spectacular architecture, world-class shopping, luxury hotels and bustling hawker stalls dishing out culinary favourites – these are the things Singapore is known for. And yet this green metropolis is fastbecoming a favourite for families. What’s to love? For so long, Singapore has been considered a short stopover destination but with so much to do, you can easily spend five or six nights on the SouthEast Asian island nation. You will need at least one day to explore Sentosa Island. Touted as Asia’s leading leisure destination, this ‘State of Fun’ is located only 15 minutes from the mainland and easily accessible. Start your day

with a cable car ride from Mount Faber to Sentosa’s Merlion Station. From here it’s an easy walk to Universal Studios. It may be smaller than its Los Angeles counterpart, but this popular theme park still packs plenty of punch in the adventure stakes. Meet Troll characters Poppy and Branch, shake hands with Shrek and take a boat ride through Madagascar. Other must-see attractions in Singapore include the vibrant and lively Chinatown, the educational and interesting ArtScience Museum and Gardens by the Bay, a beautiful 101-hectare nature park consisting of three waterfront gardens, water play area and the equally magnificent Supertree Grove Skyway and Cloud Forest. If time permits, head out of the city to the nearby Night Safari wildlife reserve park where you can witness lions, leopards and giraffes in their natural environment. TIP: Pre-purchase express tram tickets for

PHUKET This popular tourist destination has been a favourite among Australians for many years. Avoid the hustle and bustle of world-famous Patong and base yourself in one of the quieter beach villages such as Karon, Kata or Surin. What’s to love? Phuket is home to many beaches and tropical islands are just a short boat ride away. Kids will love spending the days trekking between the beaches and hotel pool. The night markets are also an experience they will never forget. The necessesties: This Thai island caters for westerners. You will find a range of supermarkets selling food and products including baby needs. There are also two major hospitals. Eating there: Venture outside your hotel and you will find great cafes and restaurants catering to all diets. Our son requires a gluten and dairy free diet and we had no problem finding food for him. Worth a visit is Dino Park in Karon. Dine at Flinstone’s inspired tables and have a game of mini golf with the dinosaurs following your meal. Staying there: For a quieter hotel, try Horizon Karon Beach Resort and Spa. Only a short walk to the beach, it sits on the border

Universal Studios, Singapore of Karon and Kata and is a 10-minute tuk-tuk ride from Patong. The four-star resort offers superior rooms ideal for families. Visit horizonbeach.com/horizon-karon.

FIJI Postcard-perfect beaches of white sand and calm, aqua water, Fiji’s Coral Coast is what tropical holiday dreams are made of. The slow-paced lifestyle makes for a great getaway for busy families. What’s to love? Days spent within resort grounds – swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, snorkelling – there is plenty to keep littlies and teens active. Other than relaxing and enjoying the beach, you will also have the chance to get close to the Fijian culture with dancing and fire shows a regular staple on resort calendars. The necessities: It’s a little harder to access shops in Fiji, but the resorts generally have a minimart on site. Alternatively, if you are staying on the Coral Coast, you can catch a taxi into the neighbouring town of Sigatoka where you will find a supermarket. As for medical needs, the island does have hospitals and doctors are readily available and can be called out to your hotel room if required. Eating there: When booking your holiday, it is always a good idea to purchase an all-inclusive package, which includes three meals a day. Staying there: The five-star Warwick Fiji is perfectly positioned along a stretch of beautiful beach. It boasts five restaurants, a large pool with children’s pool, kids club and a range of rooms that can accommodate families. Visit warwickhotels.com/Fiji-resort.

CURIOUS GORGE

Get an unforgettable nature hit in the spectacular Kimberley. WORDS: Sophie Moore, AAP.

H

ours before I’m due to arrive at El Questro Wilderness Park in the remote Kimberley, I get a call from the general manager. “I’ve organised something special for you,” Lori Litwack says. “You don’t have a problem with small planes do you?” No, not at all, I reply. It’s not a complete lie. The size of the aircraft isn’t a problem, I just don’t like flying. But when someone offers you a scenic

flight over the Kimberley, you don’t say no. So when my jet taxis past the single-engine craft at Kununurra Airport I fix a smile on my face, swallow some more pills and join the other passengers cooing at their tiny wings. My Kimberley Air Tour’s pilot Graeme tracks me down by the baggage carousel. “Were you hiding?” he frowns, holding up a sign with my name. He’s earnest and quietly competent so with deep breaths I climb into the front

passenger seat of a Cessna 210. It’s May and the dry season is well underway. The landscape below seems to crumple in folds of green and peaks carpeted in spinifex. Patches of charred eucalypts sprout silver shoots from oxblood stained earth before turning into groves of skeletal paperbarks clumped where rivers of fresh water must flow underground. Above them stands the 120 metre-high, iron-stained Cockburn Cliffs, burnished pink and gold by the late afternoon sun. El Questro has been running as a tourist attraction for more than 25 years, since the former cattle station was bought by Englishman Will Burrel and his wife. The pair purchased the then one-millionacre property for one million dollars and set out to build accommodation ranging from the basic camper and family holiday maker’s cabin to the high-end tourist who craves a bit of luxury and exclusivity. The so-called ‘glamping’ tent where I spend my nights at Emma Gorge Resort is priced somewhere in the middle. Newly refurbished after a bushfire swept through the gorge and destroyed much of the resort’s accommodation in 2016, the 60 tented huts sit on stilts off the ground between groves of talcum-white gum trees. Every morning I wake before sunrise to the sound of pied butcher birds and finches greeting the dawn. A short walk to the resort’s

namesake Emma Gorge leads to a hiking trail across rough sandstone rocks as I follow the stream sheltered beneath the towering Cockatoo Cliffs. I am all alone when I reach Emma’s Pool and slide into the smooth, cool water fed by a droplet waterfall stretching 35 metres high above my head. When it gets too cold, I drift over to a narrow alcove where a thermal spring heats the water to a warm bath. As I float while looking up at the expanse of blue sky, it feels a bit like flying. And I am not scared at all. The writer stayed as a guest of El Questro Wilderness Park.

IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE: Kununurra Airport is a three-hour direct flight from Perth with air or road transfers available to Emma Gorge Resort, El Questro Station or the Homestead. STAYING THERE: El Questro Station and Homestead are open to guests from April to October during the Kimberley’s dry season. Guest accommodation ranges from non-powered camping sites from $22 per night to safaristyle tented huts at Emma Gorge and deluxe, adults only $3000-a-night cabins cantilevered over the Chamberlain River.

VIRGO (Aug 24-Sep 23)

LIBRA (Sep 24-Oct 23)

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)

Tuesday and Wednesday are the best days to socialise and communicate. Then, Neptune squares the sun on Thursday. Don’t worry if your concentration wanes, your confidence is curbed or your motivation is muted; it’s just a passing phase.

The planetary patterns highlight your helpful nature and your strong desire to be of service to others. But, do other people actually require your well-meaning assistance? Be careful you’re not just being a fussy and finicky meddler.

This week’s stars encourage your obsession with perfection. But, things won’t run smoothly. If you adapt to changing circumstances and accept mistakes and misunderstandings with good grace, you’ll manage fine.

You’ve stewed over a complex situation for a while now. Resentment has built up and Tuesday could be the day when you say exactly what’s on your mind. Don’t expect a favourable response from others, though!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

This week, the planets confuse communication, so be careful you’re not viewing people through ridiculously rose-coloured glasses. Intuitive insights are highlighted, but don’t get so carried away that you head into the realm of pure fantasy.

Tuesday is a terrific day to power through paperwork, take care of business or learn something new. You’ll feel focused, intense and super fastidious. Just make sure that doesn’t translate into being an obsessive control-freak!

Nebulous Neptune scrambles your financial antennae, so it’s not a good week to borrow funds, make investments or lend money to others, as you’re liable to make fiscal decisions based on fluctuating emotions and confusing information.

Avoid making important decisions, as your thoughts and feelings will fluctuate during the week. The more you express the artistic, humanitarian and/or spiritual sides of your Piscean personality, the less confused you’ll feel.

CROWD PLEASER A broad marketing campaign created plenty of buyer interest when this original Buderim home made it to market. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

W

ith a coveted location on top of Buderim mountain and no real estate history to speak of, it was little wonder that interest in 15 Foote Ridge was through the roof. Built in the 1960s and sold to a family friend, who held on tightly to the property before it was inherited by their son, the property had never been officially listed on the market until it was put up for auction through McGrath Estate Agents. Agents Chris Pace and Damien Michael managed the campaign, opting to combine marketing through full-page ads in My Weekly Preview, posts on various websites and a signboard. The unique nature of the property attracted local media coverage that further boosted its profile. “We erected scaffolding to show the potential views from a new two-storey home and every buyer climbed it for a look,” Mr Pace says. The views from the scaffold stretch from Mount Coolum to Mudjimba Island and around past Alexandra Headland to Kawana and Caloundra. You can also see Moreton Island on a clear day. There were 78 buyer inspections over

The auction day attracted 120 people the four-week campaign and a staggering 120 people attended the auction day on April 7, with nine registered bidders. All of them were Coast locals. The property was sold for $1.66 million, which Mr Pace says was a fantastic result for all involved.

“It’s very simple – if you want the absolute best price as a seller you need to utilise all the advertising vehicles available to make sure every single buyer knows about your home,” Mr Pace says. “Obviously we wouldn’t have had as many inspections or as much interest.”

AGENT PROFILE

GREG KEILY RE/MAX Coast and Country

What was your very first major job? Navy clearance diver.

FAST facts Property: 15 Foote Ridge, Buderim Specs: 3 bed, 1 bath, 1 car Sold price: $1.66 million Agent: Chris Pace & Damien Michael Agency: McGrath Estate Agents

How long have you worked in the real estate business and what attracted you to it in the first instance? After the Navy, I joined the police where I loved constantly helping people. I then entered real estate 13 years ago as I relished the opportunity to assist people further with an honest approach to selling their property. The most important thing for me is to be able to help people achieve their goals and I saw this industry as a way to do that.

What was the first property you sold? What do you remember about the sale? A friend’s house in Cairns. I really enjoyed helping them move to the next step in their lives. What was your most memorable sale? It was a $4.5 million property that was open listed. The market was significantly falling after the GFC so it had been on the market for two years. I sat down with the seller and showed them how taking our marketing to an outer audience through combining both print advertising and internet marketing would bring in the right ‘targeted buyer’ that I would excite with their property’s attributes. Our buyer came from Germany with a cash offer. The seller then shopped around the other agents to see if they could do better. The others obviously advised the seller that they could. I kept the buyer interested for eight weeks before the seller accepted the offer. The stress I saw the seller and the buyer endure through an open listing with lots of promises from everyone definitely has embedded the honesty factor I stick to from my police days. Being transparent with my clients is the most important aspect of my approach. How have you seen the property market change in the past 12 months? Buyer confidence seems to be much stronger now

with both local and interstate enquiry. The great thing about working with RE/MAX Coast and Country is the opportunity to offer my clients property directly to more than 7800 RE/MAX offices in 110 countries around the world. I’m actually linking up with business owners in India, the Middle East and China right now so I can offer properties to overseas buyers. How do you see it changing in the next 12 months? I can only see it going from strength to strength depending on outside factors such as interest rates.

FINAL WORD >>

“Choose an agent who is honest with you, that can guide you through the journey and can accept accountability to assist you with the best possible outcome. Ask the agent to show you how they negotiate for you. The end result is what you should be focused on.”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Okay, Ramon Navarro just score what could be classed the biggest tow in at Cloudbreak Fiji last week. The picture is nothing short of insane and mind blowing. Go online and have a look – all the world is talking about it. Once you have viewed the pic, imagine if you bogged a rail or you were caught inside with this thing coming down on you? Yikes! If you remember the code red swell 2012, this seems to be the same size but on steroids! Now, calm down and get ready for a super fun weekend. Conditions look fantastic with a nice small swell with offshore conditions. I’m off to Crescent Head to chase some winter waves.

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