ike him, or not, there is no avoiding that Steve Baxter is a forward thinker – a successful one at that. This self-made millionaire, whose work on Channel Ten program Shark Tank made him a household name, is a straight shooter. He doesn’t mince words and provides business advice with raw honesty: “It’s your choice if you don’t want to take advice, but if you refuse to listen to it, it’s just dumb.” Steve shared plenty of gems like this when he spoke with MWP’s Leigh Robshaw for this week’s profile story. The entrepreneur will be visiting the Sunshine Coast to dish out his business tips at an upcoming Caloundra Chamber of Commerce event and I’m sure plenty of local business owners will be looking forward to hearing his words of wisdom. Our region is fast becoming known as a key base for startup successes and forward thinkers. In this week’s feature story, we meet five people who put faith in their own dreams and abilities to launch interesting businesses from scratch. They are now leading the way in their chosen fields and sharing their tips for others who hope to trek down the startup path. It’s an interesting and inspiring read and we wish these people – and all businesses on the Coast – well for the future. Locally-owned and based business and industry is key to our region’s success. Until next week, take care.

IN FULL SWING Where do you live? With a bunch of my closest friends in Buderim. First job? I worked as a medical receptionist on Saturday mornings when I was 15. It was a great way to make money to buy my favourite vinyls. What are you currently working on? Gigging heaps with my band and going into the recording studio next month to record our second album. Also, learning some songs in French. Your family includes? I’m lucky to have two ‘families’ – the awesome guys in my band are like brothers to me, and I have a small group of my closest friends. These are the people I can rely. First car? Hyundai Excel (nicknamed, the silver bullet – hahaha). Favourite book? The Sword and The Scimitar by David Ball.

If your life was a book, what would be the title? Do What You Love and Love What You Do. What are you reading now? The Gunslinger by Stephen King.

Best day in your life and why? Wow, another big question. Can’t pick really – the days just keep getting better. I believe in making every day the best it can be. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The day I first sang in public – it was Fernando by ABBA. I was seven years old, it was at my school’s end-of-year concert and it was unrehearsed, unaccompanied, solo and totally impromptu. I caught the performance bug immediately. Your greatest regret? No regrets – just lessons learned. What achievement are you most proud of? Can’t really say proud, just grateful for the opportunities that life has thrown my way so far. Bring it on!

“The days just keep getting better. I believe in making every day the best it can be”

Favourite song and why? A very hard question! I’m going to go with Going Home (the theme from Local Hero) by Mark Knopfler. I have requested it to be played at my funeral. Seriously. When was the last time you played sport and what was it? Don’t know if you’d call it a sport, but it was a salsa dancing class with one of my girlfriends.

You are happiest when? I absolutely love performing – whether it’s to a big crowd or just at home among my friends. What frustrates you the most? Unfortunately, sometimes you meet people who have a ‘can’t do’ attitude. Anything is possible – just give it a shot and believe in it.

How do you deal with your frustrations? Singing at the top of my voice when I’m home alone – generally, it’s Feeling Good (the Michael Bublé version). If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Always follow your passion.

Best advice you’ve been given? Be happy (not as easy to achieve as it seems).

If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Elvis Presley, Galileo and Aussie film director Peter Weir. Music, movies and astronomy – what a combo.

What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? The timber sun lounges near Alex Surf Club – great view and so serene, especially after hours.

If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I’d help out a few of my friends that need a bit of a hand, and then I’d get myself a boat with whatever is left.

If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I would like to see venues open later. I can’t believe so many venues close their kitchens by 8.30pm.

Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Tea, black, no sugar, preferably with a slice of lemon on the side.

Entrepreneurial hubs like the Innovation Centre, Spark Bureau and Grow Coastal are part of a push to nurture a thriving startup culture on the Sunshine Coast. We spoke to the founders of five local startups gaining traction in the market. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“Commitment is a big thing. Don’t expect to go into it in the first year or two and all of a sudden see results. Don’t give up your day job straight away”

Rob Rand, founder of Knobby Underwear

1. KNOBBY UNDERWEAR What is it? Subscription underwear service Founder: Rob Rand Launched: 2014 Based: Maroochydore With a background in design and marketing, Rob Rand came up with the idea for Knobby Underwear while living in a remote town in far north Queensland where it was a six-hour round trip to the shops. “When I got a new pair of undies, I realised how good they make you feel,” he says. “I wanted others to experience that as well. A good way to do it was to make it more convenient. For men to get a fresh new pair of undies in the mail, and also in a design that was a mystery, made it fun to receive the product every month.” Mr Rand designs the product and also sources artists and illustrators from around the world. What started as a men’s brand has now expanded to include a women’s range. “We went full-steam in 2015 and since then we’ve grown astronomically,” he says. “We now ship around half-a-million a year from our little Sunshine Coast warehouse.” Knobby Underwear is a finalist in the Australia Post Online Retail Industry Awards, to be presented in Sydney on July 26. Advice to other startups: “The biggest thing is to just do your research – don’t get turned off if somebody has already done it. Commitment is a big thing. Don’t expect to go into it in the first year or two and all of a

sudden see results. Don’t give up your day job straight away. I was still working my normal job as a freelancer. A lot of people tend to go all in – it’s going to add too much pressure everywhere else. Just absorb information in every possible way. Listen to people, talk to everyone. Let the idea organically happen; what you set to do when you first went into it, you’ll come out the other end and it will be so different. Also, Spark Bureau in Maroochydore is awesome for startups to work out of and use their equipment. It’s also really well resourced to help get people’s ideas off the ground.”

2. BAKSLAP What is it? Sunscreen and lotion applicator Founder: Raphael McGowan Launched: December 2018 Based: Mooloolaba Keen surfer Raphael McGowan had been on the lookout for a brilliant idea for a startup, but it wasn’t until his sister Tess died from melanoma in 2012 at the age of 31 that

it hit him. He decided to develop a device that would enable the application of sunscreen to hard-to-reach areas of the body. He launched a Kickstarter campaign, which has raised $15,000, and he’s confident he’ll reach his goal of $40,000. When that happens, the product will enter its final production stages. Those who supported it via Kickstarter will receive their bakslap in November and it will be available in retail stores in December. “What we found in our research was there wasn’t one particular group who were experiencing problems applying sunscreen to their body,” he says. “There were people with mobility issues, people who lived by themselves, golfers who were hesitant to use sunscreen because it got on their hands and impacted their clubs. It was the same with fishing – once sunscreen touches bait, the fish won’t bite.” Mr McGowan spent five years travelling the world in his twenties and returned to study a Bachelor of Business at the University of the Sunshine Coast. After working in the corporate world in Sydney, he returned to the Sunshine Coast in 2017, ready to get serious about his startup idea. “Queensland has the highest rate of melanoma of anywhere in the world and I wanted to make a difference here,” he says. “I was in contact with the Innovation Centre at the university when I was at uni and I found it to be a very exciting place and one that offered a lot of support.”

Mr McGowan invented the idea and worked with a product design company based in Warana called Guzu. “They have two industrial designers and I was given the confidence that they’d created products out in the market. We created and tested seven different prototypes, each varying in size and functionality. Although it was my idea, I’ve always made sure I surround myself with local businesses and draw upon their expertise. I know where my strengths are and where they’re not.” Mr McGowan has a number of retailers in Australia ready to take the product and has had enquiries from the US, UK, Brazil, the Bahamas and Bali from stores saying they’re ready to stock it. Advice to other startups: “Share your idea; don’t keep it to yourself. Share it with friends and family and every time you do, they will give you tips or ideas you haven’t thought of. Go online, see what competitors are out there. Reach out to places like the Innovation Centre with an ecosystem of other startups. If you associate yourself with people who’ve been there and done it themselves, you don’t have to do it on your own. The Sunshine Coast is a big place, but the community is very small. Everyone in the startup space knows each other and is happy to help. There are also online communities you can join and by doing that, you’ll start to progress.” To offer support, visit kickstarter.com and search for ‘bakslap’. myweeklypreview.com.au

starting their own business. It is going to be hard yakka, it’s going to be setback after setback after setback, but you only need one thing to go right. We’ve found that with the vodka and the maté, we had taste testing fails – a lot of people would go ‘nah stuff it’. You’ve got to keep pushing and go down swinging. If you’re going to have a crack at it, you’ve got to go all in. It’s got to be a two- to five-year plan to penetrate the market.”

3. MATĒ CO2 What is it? Carbonated yerba maté tea Co-founder: Shane Nettleton Launched: June 2018 Based: Minyama Personal trainer Shane Nettleton is known on the Coast as one of the directors of Vodka Plus, a no-carb, no-sugar, pre-mix vodka drink launched in 2016 and sold in 300 stores Australia-wide. While Vodka Plus has been an exciting venture for the Minyama local, his new startup, Maté Co2, has him equally enthused. He has teamed up with friend Darren Wallis, CEO of GJ Gardner Homes, to launch a drink he says is new to Australia. “Darren went overseas with his partner and saw this maté was huge and everyone was drinking it,” he says. “People were replacing drinks like Red Bull with maté, because it was a healthier version. He knew I was involved in Vodka Plus, so he asked me to get involved. “I used my connections, got the branding done, got the bottling done and went through a lot of taste tests to find the right formula – not too bitter, not too sweet. We nailed it about four weeks ago and did our first run. We’ve got a few stockists on the Sunshine Coast and we just nailed a deal with every Good Bean Australia wide. “The whole yerba maté tea in a ready-made drink has not been done,” he says. “I said mate, look at kombucha – it has gone through the roof. This is going to be the next big thing.” Maté Co2 will be officially launched on the Sunshine Coast in the next six weeks. Advice to startups: “I think right now people are a little delusional when it comes to

4. BLACK LEMONADE BAKERY What is it? Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan triple fudge chocolate cookies Founder: Zoe Wombwell Launched: 2017 Based: Forest Glen Birtinya mother-of-two Zoe Wombwell was a finalist on the TV show Recipe to Riches for a sausage roll recipe she eventually sold to Woolworths, and Black Lemonade Bakery is her next venture. “My own personal frustration started when I saw a naturopath and was told the usual – cut out dairy, wheat and sugar. I had to bake at home for my treats to survive, because there wasn’t anything around that tasted good. I dabbled with my own baking and started supplying cafes. “It was very hard to get a gluten-free and vegan treat together – it took about 12 months to get the recipe right so it looked and tasted like a real cookie. I gave it to my friends and family and a few cafes and they were blown away.” Ms Wombwell has expanded her range to include gluten-free brownie sandwiches with butter cream filling and a vegan chai spice cranberry cookie which contains oats, so it’s not gluten free.

“The plan is to develop more cookies. We’re in the Grow Coastal program at the moment and we’re very close to getting these triple-choc cookies packaged up and into the likes of IGA and some wholefood stores around the Coast, then hopefully into Brisbane and interstate.” Ms Wombwell says Grow Coastal has helped enormously, introducing her to marketing mentors, packaging mentors and branding mentors. “With the massive vegan movement happening, I visited cafes around the Coast and said ‘try these’ – a lot said ‘wow, we’ll stock them straight away’. The university cafe was selling 40 a week straight up.” She has outgrown her commercial kitchen at Forest Glen and is now looking for a bigger kitchen. “It’s just me at the moment and I’m there a couple of days a week,” she says. “I can make about 300 cookies a day. I have two kids, four and two, and I have to work around my partner, who is a wedding photographer. “Our first-born was diagnosed with leukaemia at nine-months-old and part of our food journey was him being sick and not eating while he was going through cancer treatment. My second born was born with an egg allergy. That’s why I do a lot of free-from cooking, because I do treats for them. Advice to other startups: “Show your whole self. People want to know who you are, your why, your story and what problem you’re solving for them. The key to a great startup is having the right product, right time, to solve your client’s problem, teamed with great people around you. Find your tribe and key market sector. Network, network, network. Get uncomfortable and put yourself out there. Find a great mentor. Their advice on their own fails and wins will save you time, money and sanity… I promise! Avoid overthinking the little things. Minor details can bog you down. If your gut tells you you’ve got something great, act on it. Your gut is one of your greatest assets.”

5. FAITHFUL What is it? Surfwear brand Founder: Jaxson Bermingham Launched: 2018 Based: Mooloolaba Chancellor State College student Jaxson Bermingham hit on the idea for his surfwear label when he was 12, launching it on his 13th birthday in April. His mum is Sunshine Coast entrepreneur Rachael Bermingham, who had encouraged him to start his own business. An avid beachgoer who loves to surf and skate, he was doodling in class and began drawing the word ‘faithful’ in graphic block letters. “I was a bit bored and I just started drawing names,” he says. “I was looking at cool words that would come together. I drew the word Faithful and showed Mum. She thought it was really good.” Jaxson’s mum helped him with getting the range made and setting up a website (faithful.net.au), plus social media and publicity. The Faithful range includes T-shirts, caps, socks, bags, hoodies and girl’s crop tops, with plans for more in the pipeline. “All my friends have had positive feedback,” Jaxson says. “They say how they really love it and the clothes are really cool.” Queensland Surfing has invited Jaxson to present an award at the Junior and Grom titles on the Coast on July 28 and 29. The only other surfwear label invited to attend is Billabong, so he’s in good company. Advice to other startups: “Ask questions, believe in yourself and give it a go. Just have faith and go follow your dreams.”

DISCOVER CAREERS OF THE FUTURE AT USC OPEN DAY Careers that are likely to be in demand in the years ahead will be discussed in detail at the University of the Sunshine Coast’s annual open day. USC will hold a Careers of the Future forum as one of many activities during the day, which is expected to attract thousands of prospective students from across the Sunshine Coast and further afield. The forum will consider how people can study for jobs that don’t even exist yet and will look closely at the core skills needed by a future workforce. The open day will be held on July 22 from 9.30am to 2pm. For more information, visit usc.edu.au/open-day.

MIDDLE EAST MISSION A University of the Sunshine Coast graduate who has taken up a managerial position at a luxury hotel chain says more workers are needed in the Middle East to help prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Lyndsey Scott made the recruitment call ahead of taking on her new role later this month as Hyatt’s Area Director of Human Resources in the State of Qatar and Sultanate of Oman. Ms Scott, who will be based in the Qatari capital of Doha, says her first mission is to attract more people to the Middle East. Qatar will become the first Arab country to host the World Cup.

LOCALS PREPARE TO TREK People across the Coast are lacing up their sneakers and clocking up some practice kilometres for the Fred Hollows Foundation Coast Trek. Among them is Amber Garthon, who pulled together two teams of four walkers from Devcon Building Co. They will take on the 30-kilometre walk from Mudjimba to Noosa on July 27. Others are braving the 60-kilometre distance from Caloundra to Noosa. Ms Garthon says a team of four conquered the event last year and the expanded group were looking forward to the challenge, already raising more than $4000 for the Fred Hollows Foundation and getting in a few practice walks. To donate to a local team, visit coastrek.com.au.


STUDENTS TO RAISE MONEY WITH MOVIE NIGHT Local students will join forces next week to host an open-air movie night as part of a local youth initiative for the Buderim Foundation. On July 27, budding philanthropists from Matthew Flinders Anglican College and Sunshine Coast Grammar School will present the Disney film Moana. Starting at 4.30pm at the Buderim Mountain State School oval, the night will include face painting, sack races, prizes for best dressed, a sausage sizzle, lolly bags and a coffee van. Admission is free – bring a chair or rug.


AUSTRALIAN-FIRST FOR BRUCE HIGHWAY INTERCHANGE Work is now underway on an Australian-first engineering solution for the Bruce Highway upgrade between Caloundra Road and the Sunshine Motorway. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack says the first of 36 concrete bridge piles were recently completed for the nation’s first Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey says the innovative design will reduce the number of vehicle conflict points and the potential for crashes by widening the highway to six lanes. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2020, weather permitting.

Coinciding with a hard-fought win against the Collingwood Magpies, Sunshine Coast Lightning player Caitlin Bassett has become only the second athlete in history to shoot more than 1000 goals as part of the Suncorp Super Netball league. Ms Bassett scored a total of 43 goals in the Round 11 clash, bringing her tally to 1018. She says the milestone is an achievement for the entire team. Obtaining a 94 per cent shooting rate in 2017, Ms Bassett established herself as the Suncorp Super Netball competition’s most accurate shooter last season. She wowed crowds with a 100 per cent shooting rate in the game against the Magpies.

Whale migration and activity across the Sunshine Coast will be under the spotlight for the first time thanks to a unique partnership led by Sunshine Coast Afloat and Griffith University whale researcher Dr Jan-Olaf Meynecke. Humpbacks & High-rises – Dr Meynecke’s not-forprofit organisation dedicated to research and protection of marine mammals – will work with Sunshine Coast Afloat from July 2018 to collect important data on humpback whales and dolphins in the Sunshine Coast region and monitor their health and wellbeing. Around 30,000 whales are expected to pass by the Coast this year on their annual migration.

The Sunshine Coast Council has launched its new community project aimed at bringing residents together. Made possible with We Are Queensland grants program funding, At Home in my Neighbourhood is an innovative program that aims to create a sense of belonging by encouraging people to come together and build friendly, connected neighbourhoods. Community Portfolio councillor Jenny McKay say the council will run information sessions at local libraries from July 23 to 31 for community members who want to find out more about the project and how they can be involved.

Age is no barrier when it comes to running, according to 12-year-old Oscar Punter. The Sunshine Coast local is the latest, and youngest, member of Team Punter’s fundraising squad for Insulin for Life. Oscar kicked off his fundraising efforts at Warwick Pentathrun, where he completed his first multi-day event, which included a cross country, a five-kilometre road race, and a 1500-metre track race. The family of runners are now halfway through their 12-month challenge to run 5000 kilometres and raise $10,000 for transportation costs to ship insulin and other diabetes supplies to developing countries.

BLOOMHILL CLIENT RECEIVES OAM A client of Buderim-based charity Bloomhill Cancer Care was acknowledged in the recent Queen’s Birthday honours list. Jane Elizabeth Montgomery-Hribar (pictured) from Doonan is a recipient of the Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) Medal for her work with the architectural and construction industry, government and her mentorship of women. Mrs Montgomery-Hribar stepped down from many of her active roles in 2011 when her first cancer diagnosis was made, although she says she eventually went back part time to “keep her mind busy”. Then in late 2016 her cancer returned, and it was time to retire. An oncology nurse then told her about Bloomhill and it has become her “saving grace”. myweeklypreview.com.au

WISE WORDS For the 22nd year, Immanuel Lutheran College’s Voices on the Coast is set to inspire young creative minds. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


ore than 240 authors and illustrators have had the opportunity to share their stories with a captivated audience through the Voices on the Coast youth literature festival since its inception. Now in its 22nd year and hosted by Immanuel Lutheran College, the festival continues to inspire young people to enjoy reading, writing, drawing and performing. This year, two student days will be held at the University of the Sunshine Coast and a number of community events will be open to adults, emerging writers and readers. Festival coordinator Kelly Dunham expects around 4500 Year 4 to 12 students from 70 schools to participate in 150 talks and workshops by 30 authors and illustrators, with some students travelling as far as 200 kilometres to participate. Among this year’s stellar line-up of presenters are Sunshine Coast young authors Michelle Law, Tash Turgoose, Lynette Noni and Emily Larkin, who have all built strong profiles in their respective fields and will share their journey with aspiring young authors who wish to follow in their footsteps in a Sunshine Coast Girls Conquer the Publication World presentation at Immanuel

to the confidence of these creatives,” she says. “My personal highlight every single year it to see the kids’ faces light up when they have that engagement with their favourite author. “Watching those wide-eyed faces looking up in awe is absolutely why I do it. When they buy the book and have the author sign it, you know every one of them will be read and enjoyed.” The festival comes to a close on July 21. For a full program and ticket information, visit voicesonthecoast.com.au.

LITERARY BREAKFAST on July 19 at 5.15pm. Miss Law and Miss Larkin are both former Immanuel students and Ms Dunham says they will be a true source of inspiration for festival attendees. “There is also a USC session with Emily and Tash and their lecturer Ross Watkins, focusing on how they managed to get published. There are many young people who have books sitting in the bottom drawer, or on the laptop, waiting to get out there and this could be the key to helping them find out how to do it,” she says. “While the festival allows us to bring these

talented people to the Coast to share their knowledge, it also provides students an opportunity to converse with authors, illustrators, performers and poets. They are real people with real stories and students are real people with real stories as well.” Ms Dunham, who has been at the helm of the festival for 13 years, says the creatives get just as much out of it as those to attend. “Pat Flynn many years ago described it as his ‘One Direction rock-star moment’. These students are totally awe-struck and elevate them to rock star status, which is a huge boost

MASTERCHEF TO SHARE TRICKS OF THE TRADE Callan Smith will join other Masterchef contestants and passionate foodies at the region’s inaugural french festival. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


hat’s not to love about a perfectly executed macaron? How about one with an entirely new flavour combination that will blow your mind? That’s what Masterchef 2017 contestant Callan Smith promises to deliver when he conducts a cooking workshop at the Sunshine Coast French Festival on July 28. The Sydneysider spent a week in the kitchen creating the perfect recipe for extra virgin olive oil macarons and he says they are easier to make than you might think. “Macarons are undeniably French and I will break down the veil to show you that it’s not hard to do them at home yourself. “Olive oil is something you put on salads, but it has an endless range of capabilities. “I love turning things on their heads and as far as I’m aware, I have never seen any olive oil macarons. It may not make much sense, but it has all the characteristics to transform the ganache filling on the inside into something spectacular,’’ he says. Experimentation in the kitchen has always been a passion for Mr Smith, who was in high school when he applied for Masterchef and just 18 years old while filming the season. His final dish, Sushi for Dessert, which

was created in an elimination cook-off in Japan, was described by the judges as “bonkers but brilliant at the same time”. “I love taking time to chuck something together and I’ve found having something not work is even better than having something work the first time,” he says. “It’s a learning process and out of every failure comes success. The first dish I ever created was a birthday cake for my grandfather when I was eight. I woke up at 5am and went to the kitchen by myself and

we know in-home care. Helping you and your loved ones to LIVE the life they deserve.

while I knew in my mind what goes into a cake, I had no idea of quantities, so I ended up with a one-centimetre brick Milo cake and that was his birthday cake. “It was my first kitchen experience and also my first kitchen disaster.” Mr Smith says Masterchef has opened all sorts of doors for him in the food industry and he is thriving in his niche of combining food and theatre for unforgettable dishes and dining experiences in his pop-up shops and catering business.

“Everything I do links back to theatre and eventually I want to open up a theatre restaurant that’s completely turned on its head,” he says. “I am in the middle of writing a musical that will revolve around food and that will be the perfect combination for me. “For me, the role of theatre is not just to entertain, but to evoke a message and that’s what I always try to do with food as well.” While Mr Smith admits French cuisine is not something he often creates, he uses many of the techniques developed in France to execute his creations. He encourages all home cooks to give new things a try, because many of the cooking techniques are “not as hard as they seem”. Sunshine Coast French Festival director Lynette Croft has secured a number of past Masterchef contestants to conduct cooking demonstrations, which are included in the $10 festival entry price. The festival also offers Francophiles the opportunity to join specialty fromage, wine and champagne masterclasses with experts in each field for an additional fee.

FORWARD THINKER Steve Baxter, the gruff entrepreneur from Channel 10’s Shark Tank, doesn’t mince words – and that’s why we like him. In the lead-up to his Sunshine Coast visit, we chatted to him about fibre optic cables and flying cars. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.



e careful who you take advice from. That’s what Steve Baxter will tell the Sunshine Coast business community when he visits in August. The Shark Tank entrepreneur says there are a lot of people who brandish bad business advice, but he’s not one of them. “It really annoys me,” he says, “There’s no end of clueless people who’ve never been in business who will quote Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama, but they’ve got no experience. Business is one of the things you do that if you get it wrong, it will send you bankrupt. You’ve got to understand the background of people giving advice – they may have no experience in business.” Business experience is something Mr Baxter has plenty of. Tact – not so much. “People say they want honest advice but when you do give it, they get cranky,” he says. “The more honest advice they get the better. It can’t hurt them, but some people won’t take advice. It’s your choice if you don’t want to take advice, but if you refuse to listen to it, it’s just dumb.” This is the kind of mildly insulting statement Mr Baxter is famous for, with the Twitterverse calling him a ‘bully’ who ‘mansplains’ – or talks down to women – on Shark Tank. He dismisses this by saying he’s doesn’t discriminate when it comes to doling out hard truths. Some people love him for it, some don’t, but one thing’s for sure: ask him for his opinion and he won’t pull your chain. This honesty, combined with his business success, has earned him the role of Queensland’s chief entrepreneur, a 12-month unpaid role that has seen him travel Queensland, introducing business people in smaller areas to investors and opening new avenues of capital they wouldn’t ordinarily have access to. “I’ve managed to get out and talk to a lot of people,” he says. “One thing I want to do is take good startup expertise and goodwill out of the southeast corner and to the rest of the state. I’ve been to Cairns, Richmond, Mount Isa, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and I’m heading to Roma and the Whitsundays. “I’m getting to all of Queensland, where business is different, but everyone wants to network – networking is incredibly important. “Access to technology is the main problem in these areas.

“The NBN is a disgrace. We need to convince the Queensland Government to utilise the currently under-utilised fibre optic cable capacity they own – there’s 6000 kilometres of fibre optic cable all through Queensland. It’s about educating them – it’s there and can offer high-speed bandwith.” This would enable Queensland to offer its own broadband network to rival the NBN. It’s this kind of thinking, designed to push Queensland forward, that makes him such a great business advocate for the state. A proud Queenslander, Mr Baxter was born in the remote town of Cloncurry and raised in Emerald, joining the army at 15, where he became a technician working in electronics, telecoms and guided weapon systems. In 1994, at the age of

23, he invested his life savings of $11,000 to launch his first startup, internet service provider SE Net. It was acquired by Ozemail/UUNet under the stewardship of founding director, Malcolm Turnbull. In 2001, Mr Baxter launched his second startup, PIPE Networks. Eight years later he sold it to TPG for $373 million. Mr Baxter spent a year working with Google in California in 2008 and since 2010, has been an early-stage investor in startups through his company, Transition Level Investments. If you want him to invest in your company, however, you’ll need a cracking idea, a lot of tenacity and the ability to work well with others. “If you’re a shitty person, you’re never going to win,” he says. “You have to be a team player and you’ve got to be able to motivate people.” And if you think your idea is too ‘out there’, think again. Mr Baxter thinks big – much bigger than most of us, and one of his pet projects is a real eyebrow raiser: flying cars. “Flying cars are like drones that two people can sit in,” he says. “They’re electric powered and very fast. They’re actually out there. We don’t need more roads. Let’s go with freeways in the sky. There are flying car models out of Asia and Europe and several out of the US. “Imagine looking up in the sky and in a cubic kilometre of airspace, you can have vehicles 50 metres away from the next vehicle. LA is working on having a flying car service available by 2023 for the same price as UberBLACK. “For me, it’s about do we do this one year after LA or 10 years after LA? We spend billions on roads in Queensland every year and every year, they just suck slightly less. For God’s sake, let’s do things differently.” Catch Steve Baxter on Shark Tank, Tuesdays at 8.45pm on Network 10.

Steve Baxter will speak at the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce Better Business Breakfast at the Events Centre, Caloundra on August 3. For tickets visit caloundrachamber.com.au/events. The event is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.

Poppy’s hair change – yes or no?

KYLIE JENNER’S TOP MAKEUP TIPS Kylie Jenner is currently gracing the cover of Forbes magazine as the youngest person on the annual ranking of America’s Richest Self-Made Women. At the age of 20, her company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth US$900 million – another year of business growth will make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, trumping Mark Zuckerberg. She’s even outdone big sister Kim, who is worth around US$350 million.

Model and actress Poppy Delevingne, older sister of Cara Delevingne, shows how different a dramatic hair change can make you look. She recently chopped her gorgeous long locks off in favour of a messy bleached bob with dark roots showing through. What do you think of her new look?


1. Ms Jenner applies her eye makeup first, so her eyeshadow doesn’t ruin her base. 2. She uses two shades of mascara – Dior’s Diorshow black mascara on her top lashes and a brown mascara on her bottom lashes. 3. She finishes her makeup off with Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, $49 from Mecca Maxima.


Budget: Nude by Nature Touch of Glow Highlight Stick is Priceline’s bestselling highlighter. It has a cream-to-powder texture and is available in three iridescent sheer shades: Champagne, Rose and Bronze, $24.95 from Priceline, Target, Big W and Myer. Mid-price: Mecca Cosmetica Enlightened Lit From Within Powder is a light-diffusing powder that hit cult status when it launched, $48 from Mecca Maxima, Sunshine Plaza.


Luxe: Mecca’s top selling highlighter is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. It features six universally flattering shades, $67 from Mecca Maxima, Sunshine Plaza.

3 TOP-SELLING HIGHLIGHTERS FOR ALL BUDGETS eyeshadow Pressed eye ey y sshadow is the most common. It’s easy to blend and isn’t too messy. Try Revlon Colorstay from Priceline. 16 Hour Eye Shadow, $23.95 fro Loose eyeshadow L h d gives you more saturated colour but can be messy to work with. Use a primer first for the best colour payoff. Try Elf Australia Studio Pigment Eyeshadow, $8 from Kmart. Cream eyeshadows create a solid block of colour or can be used as a base for powder eyeshadow. Try Australis Eyes on Unicorn Cream Eyeshadow Palette, $19.99 from Priceline, Big W and Kmart.

Sami Muirhead is this week plagued by First World problems – someone is stealing all the cheese and puffer jackets are impossible to wash.

Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane asks, when was the last time you looked in the mirror and gave yourself a compliment?


hree things annoyed me in the news this week. When I say ‘news’, I do speak of what I find important in my shallow little bubble of a world that has zip to do with the grand scale of the globe involving petty politics or dire current events. News item number one that made me feel irrational anger and outrage was a story about a $6 cheese from Aldi that has us all acting like crazy ladies – the Le Pave Cheese (it is French for crack cocaine and is creamy goodness). Apparently it is tastier than fancier fromages that cost more than three times the price, but it is impossible to nab it because some cheese hog is hoarding it and keeping it all to him or herself. News item number two involves washing instructions for puffer jackets. If you are anything like our family we live in our feather-filled coats from Cotton On over winter. Those coats are more like little suits of armour and have been more present in my children’s daily lives than I have. They act as wind breaker/a pillow/comfort provider/a raincoat and all is right with the world if my kids have their puffer coats on. What is not right is what they stuff into their pockets, which ranges from sticky jellybeans to rocks. Therefore I have avoided washing the little army of jackets in our house in the fear they may turn into soggy and sad relics of what they were. But I mustered up some energy and stopped eating Tim Tams long enough to

check on the correct way to wash your puffer jacket. It is not for the faint-hearted. The online instructions state you should soak your down jacket for up to 60 minutes in some special organic, non-toxic, nonallergic detergent that costs about two weeks of your salary. The instructions then specify to “lightly squeeze out excess water and under no circumstances wring it as you will risk damaging the feathers”. And the part that really made me mad is the final few steps of patting the jacket after you lie it flat to dry before “fluffing it every few hours” for 24 hours. The final step of the ridiculous process involves putting it in the dryer with tennis balls, people. I am so confused. Needless to say, I just threw the jackets over the balcony to ‘air’. And the news item number three that had my blood boiling is a new list of baby names that came out this week. The most unpopular baby names of 2018 have been revealed. The least popular boys names are Gary, Gareth and Norman. Sincere apologies if your name is on the list. According to Netmums, the year’s least popular baby names for girls are Annette, Elaine and Linda. Growing up, Linda Carter was my idol and all I wanted was to have an invisible jet and cool hair the same as Wonder Woman. How has this travesty come to be, that in four decades the coolest woman on the planet has a moniker that is being shunned? Well, not all is lost. Carter is on the list for the most popular boy names. Sanity prevails.

hen was the last time you looked in the mirror, gave yourself a little nod and a wink and said, with a completely straight face, ‘Hey there gorgeous’? This was the question posed to a room full of confident businesswomen at an event I attended last month and to be honest, the thought of doing such a thing made me break out into a cold sweat. And I know I wasn’t alone in having a physical recoil at the very thought of doing that. Once I recovered, I got thinking – when was the last time I did that? It was waaaay before I had my two gorgeous children. Possibly on the morning of my wedding, when I had my hair and make-up done up to the nines and looked like no real semblance of my everyday self. If I dial back even further, the last time I regularly gave myself a ‘how you doin’?’ was probably when I was in my early twenties and I was pumped while primping and preening in the bathroom in the lead-up to heading out on the town with my girlfriends for a night of dancing. So, now that I’ve shared, when was the last time you gave yourself a bit of an

emotional boost? If it was this morning, give yourself a pat on the back. But I’m guessing the majority of you would have let out a nervous giggle when you started to let your mind wander to the last time you gave yourself a bit of appreciation. It’s true that we are all busier than ever and many of us are juggling multiple balls – work, relationships with family and friends, trying to fit in some leisure time to enjoy the things that we love – but we often forget to look after number one. Eating well and getting in some form of exercise (even if it is chasing your preschooler around and around the kitchen island bench every morning trying to get some pants on them for the day...) are key to filling up your cup and keeping you energised. But I have a different challenge for those of you reading this. Take some time to check yourself out in the mirror and really appreciate what you see. Yes, it may be confronting at first, but you are one-of-a-kind and taking that time to acknowledge how gorgeous you are will help you to find a new spring in your step when you come to find a new self-love and appreciation for who you are. Go on, give it a try.

Darryl Watt, Ord Minnett Buderim.



espite patches of weakness, the global economy has so far sustained above-trend growth and Australia’s economy has positively surprised. However, risks are building, and the challenges that unsettled investors in the first half will likely persist in the second half. This will keep markets choppy for the remainder of 2018. Despite some patchy data in Europe in the first half, upgrades to the outlook in the US and China have helped the global economy sustain an above-trend, pace of growth so far this year. The Composite Global PMI, an indicator of manufacturing and services activity, has averaged around 54 this year, still in expansionary territory, and a level consistent with GDP growth annualising around three to 3.5 per cent.

For the remainder of the year, we see: • Regional: global growth modestly slowing but remaining above-trend. The slowdown is mostly policy-induced, in our view. Stronger growth in the US and Euro-area is being limited by central banks gradually removing stimulus, while trade tariffs will shave some growth from China. We assume that Europe and the US maintain around 2.5 per cent annualised GDP growth, while China’s growth is forecast to ease to around 6.3 per cent annualised. Emerging markets are also forecast to slow

“We think the European Central Bank will stop short of lifting rates until late 2019” as they face reverberations from the direction of US policy. • Economic sector: we are relatively constructive on the outlook for consumers in the Euro area and the US. Unemployment rates are at their lowest levels since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) in these regions, and consumer sentiment is near post-GFC highs, providing encouraging signs for consumer spending. A modest pick-up in business capital expenditure is

also forecast, underpinned by solid business sentiment and growing profitability among firms. The key unknown, however, is how government policies will evolve. Populist influenced coalitions in Germany and Italy, and an escalation in trade conflicts, risk unravelling an otherwise robust economic picture. • Inflation: global inflation should firm to 2.5 per cent by year-end from a combination of protectionist policies, prolonged strength in commodity prices (for example, oil) and a continued recovery in wages as labour market slack diminishes. • Interest rates: central banks remain confident in the outlook, which has led the US to raise rates twice this year and the European Central Bank (ECB) to target an end to its monthly bond purchase program

in December 2018. Our base case is for the US Federal Reserve to raise rates two more times this year (25bp each), and US 10-year bond yields to rise to 3.2 per cent by calendar year end. We think the ECB will stop short of lifting rates until late 2019. Japan likewise will keep monetary policy steady this year given little evidence of inflation pressures there. Indications are, however, that China will further ease policy in response to the heightened external risks.

Polaris are making an impact on the music scene their own way – and local fans are loving it. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Everyone loves a cuddly teddy bear and for those who take joy in discovering dolls from the past, the Sunshine Coast Doll Bear Craft and Miniature Club’s annual show is the place to be. Held at the Buderim War Memorial Hall on July 21 from 9am to 3pm, the show features trade tables, displays of bears, porcelain and cloth dolls, reborn dolls, crafts, sewing and miniatures. Entry is $5 with raffles, tea, coffee, cakes and light lunches available.



he fact that Polaris rip it up every time they hit the stage is no accident – the south-Sydney five-piece write every one of their metal-core songs in a way that means every person at their live shows can experience a special moment with them and it has seen their popularity soar. Their debut album The Mortal Coil, released last year, propelled Polaris into the stratosphere, with their growing legion of fans spreading far outside Australia and into Europe and the US. Drummer Daniel Furnari says they have surpassed the high expectations they have set for themselves and are planning to bring their high-energy live show to the Sunshine Coast for the first time later this month. “We are one of those bands where the desire to play it live is what drives us,” he says. “The live performance is the most pure aspect of you as a performer and while you can spend all these hours trying to make something sound perfect, really at the end of the day when you get on stage and when you perform, that for me is where the song truly exists and becomes its own entity. “For three to four minutes, five people are playing one song and a room full of people are connecting with it. When you have a song that works in that context, you leave people with a really strong memory and a strong emotion and that is the ultimate goal. It is the one thing that brings us together and really

drives us and keeps us on the edge as a live band as well.” Mr Furnari says they are excited to finally hit the Sunshine Coast to connect with fans and showcase their melodic, technical style of music with new audiences. “We did have to fight a fair bit in the early days to get recognised in our local scene because we were different to the metal-core bands as we weren’t as heavy. “But we’ve had some great opportunities that has seen us able to tour and get our music out there the traditional way. Now we are selling out national shows and have seen a huge shift in the way we are being received in Europe.” Polaris will be at Solbar on July 27. Get tickets from solbar.oztix.com.au.

SLOW-ROASTED CRISPY-SKIN DUCK WITH SPICED RED CABBAGE, POTATOES & GRAVY INGREDIENTS • 1 orange • 2 cinnamon quills • ½ bunch thyme • 2 whole medium-size ducks • Salt and pepper Spiced red cabbage • 1 small red cabbage or ½ a large red cabbage • 1 brown onion • 6 garlic cloves • 1 granny smith apple • 500ml chicken stock • 6 star anise • 1 cinnamon quill Duck fat potato • 6 large sebago potato (or any starchy potato will do ) • 200ml duck fat Duck gravy • 200ml red wine • 500ml gravy powder mix (any brand will do)

METHOD Ducks Set oven to 140 degrees. Halve the orange and put one piece of orange, one cinnamon quill and ½ the thyme into each duck. Place ducks breast side up in trays, lightly season and roast for 2.5 hours. Allow ducks to cool on bench and then split in half. If you are confident, remove the rib cage and leg/ thigh bone. Spiced red cabbage Slice cabbage into thin strips, finely slice the onion, crush garlic, peel and grate the apple. Put these and the rest of the ingredients into a heavy-based saucepan with lid and cook over a medium temperature until cabbage is starting to soften (approximately 15 minutes) then remove lid and cook until stock has almost gone.


Potato Turn oven up to 200 degrees. Peel potatoes and cut into wedges, boil for 10 to 15 minutes until just starting to soften. Strain and allow to dry well. Put a roasting dish in oven with duck fat and allow to melt, remove tray from oven and add potatoes. Be careful not to splash yourself with the fat. Roast potato for 20 to 25 minutes until nice and golden. Gravy Remove cooked ducks from tray, scrape all the fat into a saucepan. Add red wine and reduce to a syrup consistency, add the gravy mix and bring to boil.

COOKING TIP Roast the ducks the day before to make it easier. To reheat ducks, lay them on a tray with the skin up, mix 100ml honey and 100ml balsamic vinegar in a cup and brush onto skin of duck. Roast again for 15 minutes and serve with the spiced cabbage, potatoes and gravy.

Warm up this winter with a hearty meal created by Parklands Tavern head chef Justin Brekalo.

REC CLUB THE CENTRE OF FRIENDSHIP, FUN AND FITNESS Tony Sandy, Director, Just Better Care Sunshine Coast



Liz and Alan Hallgath


alcyon Lakeside homeowners are plunging into the huge array of activities, facilities and events now at their doorstep in the community’s spectacular new recreational club. From aqua aerobics, Zumba and pickleball to home brewing, snooker challenges and happy hour at the Sunset Bar, the rec club is a five-star hub of fun, friendship, fitness and relaxation. Community manager Donna Osborne says the rec club’s packed timetable of activities, diverse interest groups and regular social events are allowing homeowners to make the most of their Halcyon days. “It has become the heart of the community,” she says. “Our homeowners are getting active and involved, and living each day to the full.” Homeowners Alan and Liz Hallgath are lapping up

Lakeside’s opportunities and have created a special Halcyon diary to keep track of all their activities. “We have never been so busy and we can’t fit everything in,” Mrs Hallgath says. “We have to be careful not to double-book ourselves. I’m doing circuit class, water aerobics and jewellery making on a Monday, craft on Tuesday, circuit class again on Wednesday and art on Thursday, it’s full-on every day. “And there are new groups forming all the time.” Mr Hallgath fills his days with the garden club, distilling group, aqua aerobics, men’s movie nights and tennis, which his wife also plays. “I’m so busy that it’s hard to get ‘me’ time,” he jokes. “I like the mix of what we do and there are things that I haven’t done yet that I’d like to try.” Evenings are busy too with the couple sometimes finding they have just one night a week free. “It’s very social here and we love the friendship and that feeling of having the support of a community around us,” Mrs Hallgath says.

ccording to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2015 data, Australian men aged over 85 have the highest suicide rate in Australia, and more than double that of teenagers. Despite the lifelong promise of retirement joy, unlimited travel and all the golf one can handle, the reality of a retirement lifestyle can be quite a culture shock to many. Perhaps retirement, to some, goes against the values to which many have devoted a lifetime. Giving back, providing and purpose. These might seem necessary parts of life for most of our years, but fundamentally they speak to a very human need to feel needed. This correlates with the findings of an 80-year Harvard University study that has proven the key to happiness lies in connection. The simple fact is that getting involved in a club or volunteering your time for a good cause can make you happier, healthier and help you to live a longer, more productive and satisfied life. Volunteering Sunshine Coast offers its members an abundance of opportunities to transform a little extra time into successful enterprise for struggling local community groups, charities and even our local hospitals. University of the Third Age (U3A) and organisations like 60s and Better offer an opportunity to learn, keep active and even travel with like-minded individuals. The Blackall Range Woodcrafters Guild shed opens daily and depending on your interests, you can devote your time to carving and turning, furniture and joinery, or join the ‘Toy Boys and Girls’ and make toys for charities and local hospitals. For those willing and able to seek them out there are a range of options for social interaction, purpose and friendship in our Coast community. Perhaps you know someone who might be in need of a little human connection. Whether it’s a parent, friend or neighbour, chances are that a chat over a cuppa might start a journey of hope and happiness, or even save a life. Contact Lifeline for support on 13 11 14.

Senior Australians considering a move into a Lendlease retirement village now have a new choice to help them pay for their retirement. Lendlease has introduced new ways retirees can pay for their retirement living to enhance choice and flexibility and allow them to decide what is most suitable to their situation. The new options comprise a prepaid plan, a refundable contribution and, for villages with serviced apartments, pay-asyou-go. These new contract options complement the traditional model, known as a deferred management fee – also known as an exit fee – which remains the most common contract choice in the industry. Lendlease’s new retirement living contracts are designed to provide customers with a variety of choice previously unavailable across most of the industry. Existing and potential residents at various villages across Australia have helped design the contracts to enhance choice and flexibility. In addition, the new deals can be applied to both existing and new retirement village developments and will be on offer at a majority of Lendlease villages by July.

The new contracts are also designed to broaden the appeal of living in a retirement village to more people. People can choose certainty with the refundable contribution, capital growth with the prepaid plan, flexibility with the pay-as-you-go model for serviced apartments or simply retain more capital up front by choosing the traditional exit fee model. Lendlease owns and operates 71 retirement villages and is one of Australia’s biggest retirement village operators.

Living Gems sales manager Victoria Dent says residents at the Pacific Paradise resort certainly make the most of every day. “It is wonderful to see everyone enjoying all the resort has to offer; be that lawn bowls competitions, tennis matches, aqua aerobics, leisurely strolls around the resort or happy hour drinks with friends,” she says. “You occasionally go quite some time without seeing certain residents as they’re always off travelling the world.” Living Gems residents David and Beth Nielsen say moving into Pacific Paradise allowed them to downsize from their former canal-front property on the Sunshine Coast, and it has freed them up to do more travelling. “We felt that it was time to downsize, and by living here, at a turnkey resort, we knew we could go off travelling even more than we had in the past,” Mr Nielsen says. “We have been on 70 cruises spanning every continent apart from Antarctica. We travel to see this fascinating world in which we live, and we are somewhat addicted to it.” Ms Dent says as well as enjoying meals in the country club and barbecues by the pool on a Sunday afternoon, residents enjoy getting out and exploring the local area for the perfect place to eat.

“We are surrounded by an abundance of restaurants serving up delightful food that would make even the most accomplished foodie sing,” she says. “The North Shore Tavern is only a ten-minute walk from the resort if you’re after pub food, or you can travel ten minutes by car to reach The Loose Goose, Nouveau Bar or Lily’s on the Lagoon in Twin Waters.” With all this at your fingertips you can be sure you’ll live everyday like you’re on holiday at Living Gems Pacific Paradise.

THE BENEFITS OF PETS IN AGED CARE While Australian households have one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world, this doesn’t carry through to our aged care services, according to a study by the Animal Welfare League of Australia (AWLA). The 2017 AWLA Pets in Aged Care Study revealed that while 63 per cent of Australian households are pet owners, only 18 per cent of residential aged care facilities allow pets to reside with their owners. According to Seasons Aged Care chief executive officer Nick Loudon, elderly people moving into aged care can already

“Pet ownership helps to decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation” feel a level of sadness due to leaving their family home and this sense of loss can be even more profound when they need to separate from their much-loved pets. “Part of the reason that we encourage pet ownership within Seasons communities is that when a resident is strongly bonded to their pet and the care

of that pet is well-supported, there are huge benefits for that resident which creates a ripple affect across to other residents and staff,” Mr Loudon says. Pet ownership helps to decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation, while increasing social interaction, providing purpose and meaning and improving the quality of life of their owners. At Seasons, you live in your own private apartment with your pet by your side while all the care you need comes to you. When caring for your pet becomes more difficult, your personalised care plan can also extend to supporting you with aspects of pet care, such as dog washing and grooming.

With Mercury turning retrograde, pursuing your dreams won’t be a direct journey; plenty of planning is required before you taste the sweet fruits of success. Under the influence of Friday night’s lunar eclipse, a friend from the past could re-enter your life.

This week, you may find it a struggle to juggle your personal and professional lives. On Thursday, Mercury starts reversing through your work zone. Plus, retrograde Mars is already bringing up unresolved family issues.




PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

Retrograde Mars, retrograde Mercury and the lunar eclipse all activate your adventure and communication zones, so you’ll feel like travelling. You’re also keen to connect with friends from near and far, but be careful when it comes to social media.

When it comes to a close relationship or financial matter, all is not as it seems. Life isn’t just about what you can see, study, discuss and dissect; there are many things that are hidden from the eye (or just plain mysterious).

This week, it will be hard to work out if you’re coming or going. Retro Mars and Mercury see you hesitate about making an important decision, while Uranus and the lunar eclipse stimulate your impulsive side, which could strike unexpectedly.

Don’t expect a brilliant lightbulb moment anytime soon! If you’re struggling for ideas and direction, look within for some divine inspiration. Contemplation and meditation are also favoured.

This week’s stars rev up your travel zones, so you’ve got a need for speed (which makes you more accidentprone than usual). Slow down! Less haste and more concentration will ensure you arrive at your various destinations safe and sound.




With retrograde Mars and the lunar eclipse activating your career zone, be very clear communicating with colleagues. Keep them up-to-date with what you are thinking and doing, otherwise misunderstandings are likely.

unshine Coast residents will soon be able to enjoy Queensland’s first grand linear park – located within Palmview’s largest masterplanned community, Harmony – with the first $3.1 million phase set to be completed by mid-August. Once fully complete, the park will span more than five hectares and run the length of 10 football fields, forming a central green corridor throughout the community. AVID Property Group Queensland general manager Bruce Harper says the first phase of the Grand Linear Park has been fast-tracked more than three months ahead of schedule. The Grand Linear Park will ultimately be made up of a series of local parks, each with individual facilities and identities. Phase one will provide two hectares of community space for people of all ages and recreational interests to enjoy, from kicking a ball around with the family and enjoying a picnic with friends, to breaking a sweat on the first stage of a large network of interconnected cycle and walkways. Phase one of the park will feature three separate play areas for locals to explore, including a set of six swings, two table tennis tables and a 30.2-metre multi-play structure with a slide, spider’s web, swinging ropes and

stepping stones. Fitness fanatics will also be catered for, with pull-up bars, parallel bars and rope bells all available in the specially-designed outdoor fitness centre from leading outdoor equipment designers, Kompan. “With 90 per cent of our residents at Harmony set to be within 250 metres of a local park, getting outdoors to enjoy the Sunshine Coast’s active lifestyle will be easy – and accessible – for everyone,” Mr Harper says. “The unique layout of our linear park allows us to offer a versatile and innovative park design that resonates with the social and

recreational needs of our community. “We have designed the park to include things that are important to us in community facilities, including bathrooms and seating for family birthdays and get-togethers.” Harmony’s Grand Linear Park is the first of many parks and open green spaces for the community and will connect residents to the Harmony’s 60-kilometre network of cycleways and pedestrian paths.

TREECHANGE VS SEACHANGE RiskWise Property Research has undertaken an analysis of popular treechange and seachange areas to determine which would deliver stronger price growth. The results showed that over the past five years, seachange areas delivered more than double the price growth than treechange areas. Seachange areas grew 43 per cent, while treechange areas saw 18 per cent growth. RiskWise CEO Doron Peleg says part of this was due to the popularity of beachside areas which had significantly increased in the past few years. “However, treechange areas in general are significantly more affordable with a median price of $378,000, and seachange, $686,000,” Mr Peleg says. Byron Bay delivered the strongest price growth of 102 per cent over the past five years with Terrigal and Kingscliff the two next best performers at 68 per cent and 62 per cent respectively. The Sunshine Coast, including Noosa Heads, also made it to the top seven list of places to retire, due to lifestyle and capital growth, with a median house price of around $1 million. “It’s clear from these figures that seachange beats treechange hands down when it comes to solid capital growth,” Mr Peleg says.

With years of real estate experience under her belt, Jill Wright has returned to the Sunshine Coast and is working with husband Kai Lebens at McGrath Estate Agents, Mooloolaba. We chat with the pair about life and business.

Jill: When I began as an associate agent, I was allocated a property that no one really wanted. I made it my life goal to sell this home and did so in four weeks. As a stand-alone agent, my first sale was a beautiful waterfront home. I remember looking forward to buyer inspections so I could spend time in the home. It sold in three weeks under a heated multiple-offer situation. What do you love about your job?

What was your very first job?

Kai: I get to work with my wife, but I love the fact I am meeting people who have been here for generations. I get to learn the history of the area from people’s amazing stories.

Jill: Bookkeeper. Kai: General assistant at a rock climbing gym.


How long have you worked in the real estate business and what attracted you to it in the first instance? Jill: Eight years. I love it because no two days are the same. Kai: A few weeks… but I know my way around an open home. I

with MWP’s man in the water

My top five rules for SUP boarding 1. Make sure you know how to paddle, turn and surf before going out in a crowd. 2. Don’t sit in the middle of a pack of surfers 3. Don’t take every wave – share the vibe 4. Make sure you have extra strong leg rope 5. Don’t be a tosser! You give others a bad name. This weekend looks good for waves with offshore conditions. So get amongst it and don’t be that person in point number five.
