nyone who knows Sunshine Coast businessman Matt Murray knows he has a heart of gold when it comes to supporting local charities. Most recently, Matt has thrown his support behind the Compass Institute, a local service that provides training and employment to young people with disabilities once they leave school. Around 140 Coast families are assisted by the Institute – an important service that receives no government funding. This is why the organisation’s latest fundraising campaign has been so important. Matt has been the driving force behind the Seats for Sale campaign, encouraging businesses to help cover the cost for two buses with wheelchair lifts. These buses are being used to transport young people to vital activities. There are now only two seats left for purchase and it is hoped local business people will step up to the challenge. To find out more, turn to page 16. Meanwhile, in this week’s feature story, we chat with the man behind Medifarm, Adam Benjamin. This go-getter is leading the charge to make the Sunshine Coast the nation’s hub of medicinal cannabis production and is working to educate the community with the facts about the benefits of the product. Finally, we have six pages of fun ideas to help keep the kids busy these holidays. Enjoy.

A local businessman is leading the charge to make our region the nation’s hub of medicinal cannabis production. My Weekly Preview talks to the experts about the future of this powerful medicine and what it means for patients, and the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“What makes us competitive internationally is that we have federal approval, which gives us the right framework to get on with business” Adam Benjamin


ven though the first plants are yet to be cultivated, support is already growing to make the Sunshine Coast the nationwide hub for medicinal cannabis. The first Australian company to be licensed to cultivate and manufacture medical marijuana, Medifarm, is based at a secret Sunshine Coast location and director Adam Benjamin has created the first accredited medicinal cannabis education symposium for doctors. It is the first symposium of its kind in Australia and is expected to draw medical professionals from around the country when it is held on July 6 at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Innovation Centre. Medifarm is undergoing due diligence and has already spoken with the State Government and USC about creating a medicinal cannabis centre of excellence at the Innovation Centre. Medicinal cannabis, a Schedule 8 restricted substance, was legalised in Australia in 2017 and Mr Benjamin says the combination of ideal growing conditions, an existing health hub and Australia’s federal laws has made the Sunshine Coast the ideal location for this agri-med business to thrive. “Medifarm should be planting our first crop sometime this month and our facility is ready for that crop,” he says.

“We have licences to cultivate and manufacture and will be producing and extracting from locally grown product based on the leading international protocols through our exclusive partnership with [medicinal cannabis company] Tikun Olam in Israel. “But our greatest strength in this industry seems to be the patient. The patient is enquiring to their doctor, the patient is enquiring to us and it’s their health that is at stake, so it means everything to them and that’s why it means everything to us. “We want to help Australian patients by providing greater education for doctors. GPs and specialists obviously do their best to help the patient and that is the forefront of any choice they make, but we appreciate this medicine is very new to the concept of legality and we are being asked to bring it to advanced medical minds, so you have to have that conversation from zero to 100 per cent very quickly.” The symposium is for medical professionals only and will cover prescribing, protocols and applications of medicinal cannabis. A Queensland Health spokesperson says to date, there have been 59 applications to prescribe medicinal cannabis in Queensland. Three applications have been received from doctors on the Sunshine Coast through the

single-patient prescriber pathway. The spokesperson says a further 26 patients have accessed medicinal cannabis through the patient class prescriber pathway, however, none of these has been on the Sunshine Coast. Dr John Teh is an approved medical cannabis prescriber based in Brisbane who

“I can see in the short to medium term access will get simpler and easier for patients to navigate” will be one of the guest speakers at the symposium. Dr Teh has been a cannabinoid clinician approved by Queensland Health and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to prescribe imported medicinal cannabis from approved countries such as Canada since it became legalised here. He looks forward to being able to prescribe Australian-grown produce before the end of the year. “It was more patient-driven for me,” he says. “I have spent years researching natural

and nutritional treatments and I realised there was so much potential for this new medicine.” The government has legalised medicinal cannabis for those suffering from epilepsy, spasticity from multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injury, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, and for palliative care patients. “It’s such a powerful therapeutic product with a high safety profile, which means the side effects are minimal compared to the beneficial effect,” Dr Teh says. “I have already seen a lot of success in patient treatments with this medicine that once this anecdotal evidence is further confirmed by science, I feel that the law makers will be happy to move forward to incorporate other ailments that could be treated with medical cannabis. “In respect to the laws, I think perhaps the government has been conservative and careful in regards to implementing them, but the access schemes in place are definitely getting more efficient via patient demand, and waiting times are definitely decreasing. “I can see in the short to medium term access will get simpler and easier for patients to navigate.” Dr Teh says the symposium is a critical step in further educating medical professionals in the country on how medicinal cannabis can complement

25/06/2018 2:54:00 PM

FEATURE STORY existing treatment programs. “There is still a lack of acceptance because even some doctors still think this is giving patients access to a ‘doobie’ or marijuana cigarette that they can smoke, but in reality we are prescribing a therapeutic oil in the form of oral drops that we know 100 per cent of the constituents accurately and the majority of these products will not give the patient a high,” he says. “I think it’s purely a lack of knowledge that is holding doctors back from becoming approved prescribers and it’s a fair comment that doctors also need to be educated on how to use these medicines that haven’t had a lot of education directed at it until now. It is something we should be focusing on.” Mr Benjamin says the international medicinal cannabis export market is worth $70 billion and is expected to explode to $200 billion in the next decade. “The big game changer for medical cannabis in Australia is our laws. They have emerged as the most favourable laws to support this agri-med industry,” he says. “What makes us competitive internationally is that we have federal approval, which gives us the right framework to get on with business. In America, you hear states like Colorado and California that are doing extremely well with a lot of money, but federally it’s still illegal. “This gives us an amazing competitive advantage globally, not only is your home turf supporting you in the way of the law, but then the Australian Government says now we are going to allow an export industry.” Mr Benjamin says there are “only a handful” of countries around the world that are permitted to export medicinal cannabis products and by the end of 2018 there will be an additional 30 countries that will legalise medicinal cannabis use for patients. But while there will be increased competition, Mr Benjamin says other countries cannot compete with our legal framework and outstanding reputation in health and agriculture. “We would even stand ahead of Canada, which is now starting to talk about recreational usage, because in Australia we are purely dealing with a


Queensland Health and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved the following categories of patients to apply for a medicinal cannabis prescription: • severe muscular spasms and other symptoms of multiple sclerosis • chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting • some types of epilepsy with severe seizures • palliative care (loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, pain). Here’s what you need to do to begin the application process: 1. Talk to your doctor about whether medicinal cannabis may be suitable for your condition or symptoms. You will need to give informed consent. 2. If your doctor believes that it would be effective, they can contact Queensland Health for approval to prescribe. 3. If Queensland Health approves the application, your doctor then applies to the TGA for approval to allow supply of the product. 4. Once the TGA has approved, your doctor arranges for a pharmacist to dispense the medication to you. The full process of legally accessing medicinal cannabis for patients can be found here: public-health/topics/medicinal-cannabis/ clinicians/prescribing#consult Source: Queensland Health


medicine and that’s a really great point of distinction,” he says. Already, farmers, producers and manufacturers have flooded Medifarm, hoping to be swept up in the industry. But Mr Benjamin says tapping into the export market will be “phase two” of Medifarm’s plans, with the initial focus firmly on getting the products to Australian patients. Through Tikun Olam, Medifarm has the genetic strains for six different plants that will produce products for the key categories of patients approved by the government to access medicinal cannabis, meaning they will be able to begin whole-plant extraction from their first crop. “Some companies are starting at the beginning, whereas we have the genetics already. What the Israelis have brought to Australia through Medifarm is their brains and their strains and we can now focus on bringing leading information to doctors and to clinicians to review,” he says. “Lots of companies are giving the sales pitch that focuses on ‘pharmacovigilance’ of their product, which is the standards to which you would expect the medicines to be produced. While this is fundamental, if we go to the next level, we find what is of real value to the doctor – it’s education. “Thousands of patients who come to us have passed on their doctor’s details for us to send on information and the symposium will be a great way for these medical professionals to find out more about how this medicine typically works in with treatments doctors are already using. “Once doctors see how this works in with their treatment options, this can become an additional and an amazing tool in their doctor’s bag. And as with any tool in their doctor’s bag, it gets used when it’s appropriate and gets used effectively.”

THE FUTURE OF MEDICINAL CANNABIS ON THE COAST Medifarm director Adam Benjamin is working to pioneer a medical cannabis centre for excellence here on the Coast. Mr Benjamin says he wants the region to become the leading hub of expertise in medical cannabis production, knowledge, and business. “We are working very keenly and very excitedly on this project because medicinal cannabis has some amazing opportunities for businesses outside of just cultivation and manufacture,” he says. “Health is the number one economic driver at the moment on the Coast and you can’t buy a region where the best in agriculture meets the latest and greatest in health infrastructure. But you can operate extremely well in that environment.” Mr Benjamin says a future centre of excellence on the Coast would focus on commercial opportunities, creating an entrepreneurial hub for the industry. He has already had initial talks with both the State Government and the University of the Sunshine Coast about the proposal, which would require seed funding of about $25 million over five years. “This money will support the infancy and the establishment of this industry. Because we have favourable laws, favourable conditions and favourable infrastructure, now we must additionally support companies who want to support this hub,” he says. Mr Benjamin says they will continue to work on establishing the right structures and corporate governance to give the tax payer “the biggest bang for its buck” if the funding is approved in the future. USC Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) Professor Roland De Marco says while there is no official partnership yet, there is tremendous scope for USC to deliver education, research and services to help grow and develop the company. “USC’s continued rapid growth and niche research specialisations in agriculture mean we could form a powerful alliance with Medifarm.”

LIFE IS A CABARET Dancer Marissa Burgess is bringing her show to the Sunshine Coast as part of the Cote du Soleil festival. My Weekly Preview caught up with her ahead of the event, to learn about her fabulous life as a Parisian showgirl. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


arissa Burgess left Australia for Paris at the tender age of 17 with dreams of being a showgirl. Trained in ballet, tap and jazz from the age of five, she’d done a short stint with a dance company in Tasmania before taking herself to Paris, where she became the longest-serving lead dancer at the Moulin Rouge, the world’s most famous cabaret show. The Gold Coast performer arrived in Paris in 1986 and quickly landed a role at Moulin Rouge, doing 12 shows a week, decked out in feathers and sparkles, for 17 years. “I was really confident,” she says. “I’d been there before and I knew how it worked. My sister is five years my senior and was there working in the Lido show, so she’d done it all before me. I was really not phased; I wasn’t one of those gushy teenagers saying, look at me, look where I am now. I was intent on working hard and making the most of what is a difficult lifestyle.” She cites the language barrier, cultural barriers, the difficulties of living in a big city and the complexities of getting along with dancers from varying backgrounds as some of the challenges she faced, as well as a gruelling performance schedule. But life as a dancer at the Moulin Rouge also had its perks, including meeting hundreds of celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, Quincy Jones and Cate Blanchett. “You work late nights and you can’t step off stage and go to bed. It takes hours to wind down. Fortunately, Paris is a buzzing place that celebrates artists. You’re welcome and a mini-celebrity anywhere you go. Restaurant owners almost empathise with our needs as artists, they get it. It’s a nice thing, you walk in and they go ‘oh, the dancers from the Moulin Rouge or the Lido, make sure they get a nice table, put them at ease’. “I remember one time I was sitting at a table with my gorgeous crew and I looked around and there was another table of Crazy Horse girls who were just perfection, and another table of Lido girls. Each company has a different look. The Crazy Horse girls are smaller little vixens; they’re sensual and move like cats. The Lido table was like the land of the giants, six foot and above. They’re sitting over there in

their languid way, looking nonchalant and elegant. Our table was the spunky, perky loud table. Then you’d have your magicians being all quirky in a dark corner. “I did have a sort of ‘pinch me’ moment. I thought, look at this, it’s crazy.” Ms Burgess met her husband Ben Nicolodi, an Italian acrobat from a circus family who also worked at the Moulin Rouge, and the pair set up an internationally renowned production company, living lives of complete creative and professional freedom. “We don’t have kids; never has been a priority and never will be,” Ms Burgess says. “Our life is enough; it’s plenty. We have a thing called freedom that a lot of people don’t have. We’re very conscious of that and how it can be snatched away from you. If you’re not careful, you can find yourself in a position that doesn’t work for artists.”

Smart and business savvy, Ms Burgess knew her body couldn’t take the strain of full-time dancing forever and spent seven years training as a singer while she still had a regular income. She now runs her own show, Cabaret du Paris, which tours Australia and New Zealand. As the lead singer and dancer, she’s in demand at casinos and corporate events. Ms Burgess will be one of the highlights of the upcoming French Festival at Kings Beach and says crowds can look forward to a feisty and ‘zhushy’ show which will combine her showgirl act with singing French pop songs with band the Red Cherries. “Zhushy is difficult to put into words – it’s glamorous, it’s hot, it’s sexy, its expensive it’s luxe, it’s fancy.” Looking back at her career, she’s grateful her parents saw her talent and encouraged her to stick with her dance lessons from an early age. “It was all very hard but I look back and go, yeah, this is everything I wanted to do. I accomplished it to a T and then some; I didn’t leave any stone unturned. I’m now nurturing the next generation of dancers, mentoring young ladies and guys, making sure they work well because it’s a job that needs to be done with reverence. Any time you go scantily clad on stage, you have to be aware of the culture behind it. You have to be sensitive and make sure what you’re portraying is understood by the audience and their minds don’t wander off into their own version of it. “It’s a profession, a skill set and an artform. You have to be an elite athlete to do it for a start. When I do casting, I have a checklist of about 25 things – height, beauty, grace, danceability, personality, grooming, presentation, leg length, ability to work as a group, costuming, attitude on stage and in the team. “It’s a privilege to have this job. People want to see lust for life, joie de vivre. They want a dream and that’s what we provide.”

A GOOD MORAL COMPASS LOOKS LIKE THIS Sunshine Coast businesses join forces to buy much-needed wheelchair accessible buses for the Compass Institute. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


fter three years of trying to secure grants through various avenues for two new buses, the Compass Institute was able to raise enough money through Sunshine Coast businesses for two 12-seat buses with wheelchair access in just 12 weeks. The Compass Institute started offering alternative education programs for youth at risk in local secondary schools in 1992 as the Aikido Institute and in 2003, rebranded and became an accredited post-school disability service that provides further training and meaningful employment for young people. It has since expanded to five campuses and eight enterprises across the Coast, connecting with 140 families. CEO David Dangerfield says the expansion has meant Compass has not had enough vehicles to go around. “This year, we had a lot of new enrolments and I went down to one of the centres and there were a couple of people in wheelchairs there. I asked where everyone else was and they told me they were out, and that they couldn’t go because the bus did not have wheelchair access. “You can’t just leave people out of activities because of that. It just can’t happen.” Mr Dangerfield says he and his team spoke to Cricks Sunshine Coast dealer principal Matthew Murray about their options and they decided to reach out to the community with a Seats for Sale campaign. Businesses could purchase a seat on the bus and when all of the seats were sold, they would have enough to purchase the bus and fit it out with wheelchair lifts. In 12 weeks, 22 of the 24 seats was sold and the buses are ready to roll. There are still two more seats up for grabs and

Matthew Murray and David Dangerfield businesses are being encouraged to jump on board. “I feel humbled by the support that we’ve received,” says Mr Dangerfield. “Often you’re just doing your job and you can be in a little bit of a cocoon. Every now and then, you just lift your head and see how far you’ve come and see how many people have supported you in that journey and it’s so refreshing and so inspiring,” he says. “Our families have been following the Seats for Sale journey and they are really excited about it and they feel the love of the community who want to help us.” My Weekly Preview is proud to have purchased one of the

seats on the bus, as is Cricks Sunshine Coast, a long-time supporter of the Compass Institute. Mr Murray says Cricks Sunshine Coast started out funding a charity golf day for the organisation, but as Compass grew, so did Cricks’ support. The company bought boxes of jam from Compass to give to customers as a gift with every new car and donated $8 from every sale. This has totalled $250,000 over the years. “I know that 100 per cent of every dollar that is donated to the Compass Institute goes towards programs and facilities for the young people,” says Mr Murray. “This also gives them jobs and funnels back to other local enterprises, like the farmers who grow the produce Compass uses to make the jams. “We also stepped in to transform a decrepit petrol station next door to our Nambour dealership into a cafe that is run by Compass Connections, which our staff and the wider community support every day.” The Compass Institute operates with no government funding and provides educational pathways and meaningful employment, expanding the possibilities for people with disabilities in our region. The Compass Institute will unveil its new buses at the annual Gala Fundraising Dinner at the Maroochy RSL on June 29, where Cricks Sunshine Coast will also give away a brandnew Mitsubishi Mirage to one of the 330 attendees.

Sami Muirhead has a week of reality checks – Jon Snow is off the market, children grow up too soon and clothing for girls isn’t what it used to be.

Richard O’Leary sits back and watches in amazement as his two sons grow into completely different human beings.


hy do our babies have to grow up so quickly? Why can’t we freeze time and have them stay our little shadows forever, with chubby fingers and fat thighs? I am that mum who peeks in her children’s bedroom every single night to just watch them sleep and wonder how on earth any child could be so pure and beautiful. But I had a few sharp doses of reality that were far from beautiful this week. The first was when I logged onto a news site to find Jon Snow married his co-star. In my head, Jon Snow is a real person who is slaying evil knights as we speak and falling in love with the Dragon Queen. Or me. Jon Snow is one of my celebrity crushes, so it was a blow to find he has found his soul mate and an even bigger blow to read she owns a castle in real life. Soldier on we must. We took our seven-year-old daughter to buy a small gift for trying hard at school all semester. We are clearly rubbish parents, because we think bribery is just fine. We made a beeline for the toy department. Over the years I have avoided it, as it always ends in tears, with our kids begging for every toy in the place and us leaving empty-handed and dealing with tantrums on the long walk of shame out of the shopping centre. We searched the rows of toys with my daughter, who was not really interested in the Cabbage Patch Kids (yes, they are back) or the Shopkins or the My Little Pony section. The Barbie dolls left her bored.

My seven-year-old turned to me and asked, “Can we go to Smiggle please and maybe grab a hot chocolate?” It was equivalent to a stake through my broken heart. My seven-year-old is growing up. No longer a little bub and not a tween. How did this even happen? Surely it was only last year we were having unicorn parties and dressing her in tutus. Now the clothing section is confusing, because she does not fit the baby or little girls section, and the tween outfits all look like street walker clothing. And do not get me started on music. Wiggles and lullabies would insult her and yet the lyrics of pop songs result in questions about sexuality and pop culture that I am not ready to answer. I know those of you who have done all of this before me are probably laughing. You navigated the same issues, as did those before you. A study from the United States came out last week and showed the average age for a child getting their first smartphone is 10.3 years. The same survey showed tablets are the preferred devices for car rides, and half of all kids have a social media account of their own at just 11 years of age. A friend told me recently, if you cannot change the circumstances you find yourself in, then you have to change your mindset. So perhaps I’d better take a second job and start embracing Smiggle and its expensive crazy sequinned pencil cases and start drinking double shot hot chocolates.

s I sit writing this story, my eldest son is reading a book I picked up at the markets earlier in the day. My youngest son lies next to me on a mattress I’ve dragged outside of the camper trailer so we can enjoy a beautiful dry season day in a Northern Territory campground – he’s watching his performance from a few days prior, the culmination of a a couple of months of acting classes. My nine-year-old loves to code on the computer. My seven-year-old enjoys watching documentaries about history. My eldest couldn’t care less about competing in a sport’s carnival, while my youngest couldn’t stop talking about it in the lead-up, and wore his ribbons for days afterwards. My first born loves to take things apart and put them back together – the toy, torch or radio restored to working order, most of the time. My second born will write songs for hours on end, revealing his darkest fears and worries – and his life’s goals and expected glories. My eldest son likes his hair and fingernails long, while his brother likes both to be clipped short. The son who will turn 10 in a month or so puts no thought into what he wears each day, while his soon to be eight-year-

old sibling sometimes won’t leave the house unless we can find that pair of jeans. My fourth grader loves going camping while the second grader endures it – although a jumping pillow and a pool will get him over the line. My boys share similar genes, and they get mistaken for twins despite being two years apart, but they are so very different. If you asked me, I’d say the boys have been brought up exactly the same. They have experienced the same homes, the same parents, the same schools and the same holidays. They have been taught the same values, the same attitudes and given the same guidance. Yet their response to all those things have been world’s apart. I know none of these things come as any surprise to any parent, or aunt or uncle, or teacher or guide. I don’t think any of this supports the nature or nurture arguments – I’ve always believed both play a big role in all of us. This piece is not meant to provide any answers, or even raise any questions, sometimes it’s just good to sit back and be amazed, and grateful. I have two very different boys who I love exactly the same (despite their constant urging to pick a favourite). In fact, that may well be the only thing about them that is identical.

BUDERIM TEEN SET TO SOAR INTO RECORD BOOKS In September, 16-year-old Liam Morey will attempt to break a world record when he circumnavigates Australia solo. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


efore any of his peers were able to get their learner driver’s licence, Liam Morey was named the youngest person in Australia to hold a recreational pilot’s certificate. In March last year, Liam was 15 years and five weeks old when he completed the certificate he began in May 2016, which he self-funded by working part-time jobs while studying at Sienna Catholic College. Not content to rest on that accolade, the Buderim resident is preparing for an even bigger challenge – breaking a Guinness World Record to become the youngest person to circumnavigate Australia solo and unassisted. The 16,000-kilometre journey will see Liam take in 99 per cent of Australia’s coastline around all of the states and territories including Tasmania after he sets off in September and the journey could take up to four weeks, depending on the weather. Liam admits when an aviation friend he was mentoring suggested he give it a go, he initially brushed it off. But after speaking with his flight instructor Ivan Tyson, he realised he could make it a reality with financial backing and when his first sponsor, Sunshine Coast Aero Club, came on board, Teen Around Oz became a reality.

“I learned to fly at SC Aero Club, so to have them the first on board was wonderful. I have written about 100,000 words to companies and organisations seeking sponsorship and partnerships and we have 80 per cent of our $30,000 funded and we are still a number of months out,” he says. “Ivan has become the logistics coordinator for the trip and will plan the routes and share his experience as a pilot with me.” The Teen Around Oz team is jam-packed with expertise with Lachlan Smart, who became the youngest person to

circumnavigate the globe solo in a singleengine plane in 2016, on Liam’s advisory team, as well as Ryan Campbell, who held the record in 2013. The current record is held by Oliver O’Halloran, who completed the trip at 17 years and nine months, and Liam, who is now in Year 11, will be 16 and nine months by the time he completes the world record attempt. He says the longest flight he had undertaken to date has been a three-hour navigation through the Gold Coast and Amberley airspace but the arrival of his

Bristell 1131, a light sport aircraft RA-AUS from major sponsor Anderson Aviation, means Liam will be airborne as often as possible on longer flights to get a feel for the aircraft before his epic journey. Growing up in Twin Waters watching jets fly over him as he bounced on the trampoline as a child, Liam says he has always held a fascination for aviation. “My grandfather is the only family member who has been in aviation and he passed away when I was quite young, but I have found there is a real community of supportive people in aviation, I love everything about it,” he says. “I’ve had to work 21 hours for every flying lesson I’ve done, and you need 25 of them throughout a pilot’s licence. But it is really humbling to think that so many people and big organisations are coming on board for little old me to help me make my dream come true. I am extremely grateful.”

ONWARDS AND UPWARDS The Council has given Yaroomba Beach the green light, but concerns remain. The Yaroomba Beach development was approved by the Sunshine Coast Council last week, with a vote of six for and five against. However, Development Watch, Save Yaroomba and the Coolum Residents Association are launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise $350,000 to engage professionals to appeal the decision. The Yaroomba Beach Masterplan proposed by Sekisui House made history when more than 12,000 submissions were made during public consultation. Around 9200 were made against the development. Councillors Greg Rogerson, Jason O’Pray, Jenny McKay, Ted Hungerford and Rick Baberowski voted against the development, citing concerns about building height and density. Councillors John Connolly, Christian Dickson, Steve Robinson, Tim Dwyer, Peter Cox and Mayor Mark Jamieson voted for it, supporting evidence the development would create jobs and attract a new high-end international tourism market. Yaroomba Beach project director Evan Aldridge welcomed the decision and says planning can now commence on the first stage, which will include the 220-room, five-star Westin Coolum Resort and Spa and

conference facilities. On completion in 2021, Yaroomba Beach will also include public parklands, new surf lifesaving facilities and public beach access points, along with 740 dwellings. Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford says the region has been without a new-build internationally-branded hotel for more than three decades, putting our tourism sector at a “major disadvantage”. “With the upgraded Sunshine Coast Airport project underway, it was imperative that we backed up this era-changing decision with a suitable upmarket accommodation.” Development Watch president Lyn Saxton says there is no need to override the planning scheme to put a hotel on the site.


oral Limited is an international building and construction materials company headquartered in Sydney. Its core businesses are cement and construction materials in Australia, plasterboard in Australia and Asia, and bricks and roof tiles in Australia and the US. More recently in the US, it has expanded into fly ash, a key component of asphalt. We have an ‘Accumulate’ rating on Boral shares and a 12-month price target of $7.90, which compares favourably to the current price of $6.35. Coupled with a forecast dividend yield of four per cent, we expect the shares will deliver strong total returns over the coming years. What leads us to this positive view on Boral shares? Firstly, we believe the domestic business will be a big beneficiary of increased infrastructure spending, particularly on the east coast. At the recent budget, the Federal

Government announced a $24-billion infrastructure pipeline over the next 10 years, predominantly upgrades to major regional roads and highways. Boral’s vertically integrated business model leads us to believe that it will be one of the key beneficiaries of this increased infrastructure spending. Secondly, we believe the overall pricing environment is a positive for Boral. In terms of revenue, Boral has implemented two prices increases in the last two years and with a strong demand outlook, we expect further price increases to boost the top line. Putting all this together we expect margins to grow modestly into FY19 and FY20. Finally, we think that the US business is in a strong position to benefit from a multi-year program to upgrade and replace significant ageing infrastructure assets. As always, we would encourage consultation with your financial adviser or stockbroker before making any investment decisions, or acquiring or disposing of financial securities.

THIS DANCING KANGAROO TAKES CENTRE STAGE From the award-winning team behind Pete The Sheep, The Peasant Prince and Diary of a Wombat comes another hilarious tale of a bush animal you’ll never forget. Josephine is a kangaroo who loves to dance. Her little brother, Joey, tells her that kangaroos don’t dance, they hop. But Josephine continues to point her toes and leap through the air. When a ballet troupe comes to the sleepy town of Shaggy Gully, Josephine learns that there is another way to dance – ballet.

WHALE WATCHING SEASON OFF TO INCREDIBLE START The whale watching season is officially here and already we are seeing lots of the 33,000 whales that are expected to migrate through Sunshine Coast waters this year. Like everyone else, why wouldn’t they want to come to the Sunshine Coast for winter? Right now, they are frolicking around as they migrate north to breed and have their calves.

That makes these school holidays the perfect time to see these majestic mammals of the ocean up close, with Whale One, now powered by Sunreef Mooloolaba. Sunreef owner Dan Hart says watching the whales swim through the water and seeing their incredible acrobatics as they breech out of the water, wave and slap their pectoral fins and tails is always amazing.

Whale One’s whale watching tours are great value – for $69 for adults and $49 for children up to 14, you get to cruise for about four hours, heading out the Mooloolah River and east to the “whale highway”. The tours run every day (weather permitting) through until November 4. 123 Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba,

HISTORY GETS LOUD AT THE AIR MUSEUM The Queensland Air Museum volunteers have been working tirelessly to prepare for the next Open Cockpit Weekend these school holidays. The Lake Buccaneer has been fully repainted in the QAM workshops. The versatile four-seat light-amphibian aircraft engaged in commercial service up and down the Queensland coast with a number of owners during the 1970s and ’80s. The Sea Venom is another aircraft

under restoration. This is a huge job, but QAM volunteers have shown over the past 45 years that no challenge is too large. Built in the 1950s and operated by the Royal Navy off HMAS Melbourne in the 1960s, this aircraft was acquired by QAM in 1979 for $200. It’s been in storage for some years but is now being prepared for display. Australia’s first DC-3 is also under extensive restoration. The grand old lady turned 80 recently and is in need of refurbishment. Aircraft like the DC-3, built in 1937, were probably designed for a life of just 15 to 20 years, so the challenge of keeping numbers of aircraft to display condition after 50 or more years is just what the QAM volunteers do every week.

SKY HIGH An inspired moment for this Sunshine Coast author led to the creation of a book that is sure to inspire others.


hen Kellie Byrnes read an article about an ill child, she began to think about how hard it must be for children to cope with being sick and not being able to enjoy the activities they normally love. “I considered how one of the best tools children and adults can use is the imagination,” she says. “I pictured a kid looking up at the clouds and seeing interesting shapes there. “When the title Cloud Conductor popped into my head, I knew this would be a fun direction to go in.” The Buderim resident fulfilled a longheld dream to become an author when she released her debut book, Cloud Conductor, in May. “I’ve always been a bookworm and lover of stories, and constantly wrote my own tales as a kid. As I got older I didn’t exercise my creative ‘muscles’ so much, which happens to so many of us, I know, but once I’d been

working as a freelance writer for a few years, I realised just how much I loved writing. “After attending a big literary festival in the UK, I came home incredibly inspired and motivated. I decided it really was time to try and make my dreams a reality.” Cloud Conductor is the result of a year-long creative process and has been published by Wombat Books and illustrated by Ann-Marie Finn. Ms Byrnes says she hopes her book will inspire families to reignite their imaginations and embrace creativity in all stages of their lives. Cloud Conductor is available around the Sunshine Coast at various bookstores or online through Booktopia or Wombat Books. You can meet Ms Byrnes at a story time and craft activity session at Sandy Pages bookstore in Noosa on July 3 from 10am. For more information, visit

THE DEBATABLE LAND: THE LOST WORLD BETWEEN SCOTLAND AND ENGLAND Author: Graham Robb Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $36.99 Reviewer: Gillian Read


(robbers), battles, poetry, rulers and the natural environment itself. Mr Robb even looks at ancient maps of the area to find evidence for King Arthur’s existence. In posing the question of why this area was ‘neutral’ for so many years and what history can show us about the politics of its development, Mr Robb gives the reader a treasure of social and historical gems. I did get lost with 16th century dates at times, but Mr Robb’s writing is lively and never dull. He has a way of introducing people and ideas and interpreting research that broadened my world.

Graham Robb says he had not planned on writing this history. But he became intrigued after moving to the area once known as the ‘debatable land’, a small area between Scotland and England that was the last unconquered part of Great Britain. His research and writing has resulted in an entertaining, journey of discovery, rich with historical details from the ancient past to the present day that illustrate and explain the changing status of the debatable land. The book includes important roles played by the border clans, reivers

dish! There is no shortage of fresh seafood available on the Coast, with trawlers constantly bringing in delicious morsels ripe for transforming into mouth-watering dishes like seafood chowder. But one thing other chowders may lack, which you will find plenty of in the Alex Surf Club’s popular seafood chowder, is heart. This dish was inspired by the many family holidays executive chef Craig Nothdurft went on as a child. “My grandmother would make

a potato and bacon soup to use up every inch of the fish, prawns and squid caught. No waste in our family,” he says. The dish, which is available on the club’s main lookout bistro for lunch and dinner seven days a week, is made using only sustainably caught Australian seafood that is sourced locally where possible. “It’s all about making a quality soup base and allowing the seafood to speak for itself,” Mr Nothdurft says.

Award-winning chef and restaurateur Peter Kuruvita has diversified his career to encompass the roles of TV presenter, author and restaurant consultant. Mr Kuruvita’s childhood experiences cooking with his grandmother in his ancestral home in Colombo, Sri Lanka, inspired him to become a chef and incorporate spice and tradition into modern cuisine. He is now well-known for his time at Sydney’s iconic Flying Fish Restaurant & Bar, where he led the kitchen team as executive chef for eight years. Mr Kuruvita’s love of the Pacific and passion for seafood led to the opening and continued success of Flying Fish Fiji, before he brought his signature style and focus on local seafood to the famous foodie holiday strip on Hastings Street at Noosa Beach House in 2013. He has written several cookbooks and his latest cooking show Coastal Kitchen debuted on SBS on June 21 and is now available via SBS On Demand.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




Prepare to sparkle and shine, as the sun (your power planet) links up with Jupiter and Neptune. Confidence, creativity and compassion are also boosted. Make the most of it and do something special, as you tackle a project or help someone in need.

This week retrograde Mars messes with your sensitive nervous system, so do all you can to wind down, worry less and relax more. Your mantra for the moment is “I want to be alone” as you withdraw from the busyness around you.

You’re basking in the spotlight this week as you receive public recognition for work well done. The stars also encourage you to join a group or club that will help develop a creative talent – whether it’s art, writing, dance, photography or music.

This week you could let down your guard and tell someone exactly what you think of them. But be warned – family members and colleagues are primed to fight back and you’ll find you’ve bitten off more than you can chew!


CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)



You’re keen to express your ideas and enjoy plenty of stimulating conversations with a wide range of interesting people, as Jupiter revs up your social side. But be careful you don’t say the wrong thing to the wrong person at the wrong time!

Power struggles and fiery disagreements are likely this week, unless you can keep your Capricorn need to be in control under control. Swallow your pride and strive to sort out a problem that’s developed between you and a loved one.

With Mars reversing through your sign, don’t worry if you temporarily lose momentum and question your goals for the future. The dreams you dream now will manifest in September or October (especially if they involve work).

This week the sun and Jupiter bless ventures involving travel, friends, education, publishing, international business, imports and exports. You’re bursting with ideas and are keen to help, but don’t disappoint others by promising more than you can deliver.

It’s a wonderful week to dream up some fabulous new goals and aspirations for the future. But relationships will be challenging. Expect loved ones to be defensive and colleagues, clients or customers to be more demanding than usual.




You’re keen to call the shots this week but hasty words and impulsive behaviour will only lead to dramas and confrontation (especially on Thursday). Jumping to conclusions is definitely not recommended! So slow down and listen carefully.

HOW DOES THE BUDGET AFFECT THE PROPERTY MARKET? While first homebuyers took a hit in the State Budget, news of tax rebates for businesses employing apprentices and trainees was welcomed.


he State Budget provided a mixed bag for homeowners and those looking to break into the market. Queensland Treasurer Jackie Trad announced the First Home Owners Grant would be extended for another 12 months, however it has been reduced from $20,000 to $15,000 and would not be changed to include established homes. Real Estate Industry Queensland (REIQ) CEO Antonia Mercorella says the grant will help first homebuyers enter the market. “Disappointed, is the best way to describe how we’re feeling about this lack of action from the Treasurer on the grant being applied to established homes,” Ms Mercorella says. “However… we are happy the FHOG has been continued, even though it is at the reduced rate. It will continue to stimulate construction and employment.” Housing Industry Association executive director Warwick Temby is a bit stronger in his opinions about the impact this decision will have on first homebuyers. “Housing affordability clearly isn’t a priority for the government. The removal of the $5000 first home boost from the end of the month, the introduction of the $70 a tonne waste levy and increases in land tax will

all make it harder for new homebuyers to make it,” he says. “At a time when new work in the home building industry is slowing and population growth is picking up, Queensland needs policies and programs that will support the future demand for housing; not more costs on an already over-taxed new home build.” Mr Temby says residential building in the regions is just beginning to show some signs of life after “years in the doldrums”.

“The last thing the industry needs in regional Queensland is the higher hurdles the budget will put in the face of first homebuyers in particular,” he says. “Less than 10 per cent of the $400-million from its new waste levy in a full year would have kept the first home boost alive. “The government’s priorities for Queenslanders trying to get into a new home seem all wrong.” Ms Mercorella says payroll tax rebates for

businesses employing trainees and apprentices will boost the real estate sector. The $45.8-billion spend on infrastructure investment in Queensland over the next four years will improve desirability of real estate in areas where those projects will happen. The Foreign Acquirer Duty has increased from three per cent to seven per cent, representing a backflip from the 2015 position where then-Treasurer Curtis Pitt declared foreign buyers would not be taxed. In 2016, a three per cent tax was introduced and now this tax has more than doubled. “Taxing foreign buyers is a measure best suited to markets where affordability is an issue. That is not the case in Queensland,” Ms Mercorella says. “We have more than 550 suburbs throughout the state where the median house price is $500,000 or below and more than 132 of those suburbs are in greater Brisbane.” “We are very affordable and we welcome all buyers to our real estate markets.” The REIQ was also disappointed that the State Government chose to drag its feet on stamp duty reform, ignoring expert advice that the stamp duty was a regressive, outdated form of property taxation that stifled housing mobility.

The auction flags were flying as the crowds rolled up in droves to the North Shore Realty in-room auction event at Marcoola last week. There were a total of 13 properties up for grabs on the night. These properties ranged from original beach shacks to million-dollar mansions, all attracting plenty of interest. The 140-strong crowd were treated to a show of strong bidding and the sound of the auctioneer’s gavel knocking down

added to the excitement. Through a strong marketing campaign, the North Shore Realty property team were able to generate plenty of interest across all types of properties, at all price levels. The team was happy with the end result. In total, four properties were sold under the hammer. Meanwhile, two more properties were sold post-auction and there has been strong enquiry into the remaining properties.

Congrats to New South Wales for the State of Origin. Yeah, one in a row! Now here is a thought… if money is the route of all evil why do churches collect it? Now back to the good stuff. There should be good conditions this weekend with light winds predicted, so get amongst it. J-Bay is set to start next week so let’s hope Julian can score some solid points! He has some unfinished business.

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