t has been a huge week in our office. Not only have we compiled a whopping 96-page magazine, but we have been reflecting on our role within this community. And, what better time for reflection than now, as we celebrate our 10 year milestone? That’s right, it has been a decade since four Sunshine Coast businessmen came together to launch the region’s only 100 per cent locally-owned weekly magazine. What a journey it has been – one that we could not have taken without the constant support of our readers, advertisers and of course, our team. The state of our region has changed in these years. There have been social changes, technological advancements and with this, an ever-increasing pressure to keep up. Yet, despite regular reviews and updates to keep MWP as fresh as ever, we have remained constant in our desire to deliver our community that muchneeded ‘me time’. Our magazine has stayed true to its core and delivers what you want – escapism and a little time out. We are all about the experience – offering readers the chance to sit down at the end of a hectic week, unwind and stay informed on issues of local and national importance. So, we want to take this time to say thank you because this milestone isn’t about us, it’s about all of you who have continued to enjoy our magazine. I hope you continue to enjoy that ever-important ‘me time’. You deserve it.

SIMON SAYS First job? I left school at 15 to become a jackaroo. My cousins were on the land and I always wanted to be like them and took a shine to being a jackaroo. I set off from Melbourne to far west central Queensland. It was a huge change, not only in landscape but day-to-day life that included boundary riding, sleeping outside and contract mustering. Overall, it was a tough experience that was character building, but I really loved the adventure.

What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Marcoola Beach, as it is where we spend time together as a family.

What are you currently working on? Working together with partners to ensure we are successful as a region in driving and developing the tourism industry. For example, capturing the full potential of the new airport in terms of driving new markets here, but also exporting our local produce.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? My father passing away, as I lost my best friend.

Your family includes? Partner Ingrid, sons Will and twins Jack and George. First car? 1970 Ford Cortina. Favourite book? The Last Place God Made, by Jack Higgins.

Simon Latchford BIO

s s o b m s i tour

Simon Latchford is the CEO of Visit Sunshine Coast. He lives at Bli Bli with his family and is passionate about ensuring the Sunshine Coast reaches its full tourism potential. Tourism currently contributes more than $2.5 billion to the Sunshine Coast economy and the goal is to double that by 2020. Mr Latchford would also like to see an end to homelessness on the Coast and is joining the Vinnies Community Sleepout on August 23.



If your life was a book, what would be the title? Never Die Wondering. What are you reading now? Night School, by Lee Child.

10.indd 1

What frustrates you the most? Being told that something is not possible. How do you deal with your frustrations? Find another way. Go up river, down river, but find another solution. Advice to your 18-year-old? You can’t catch fish if you don’t go fishing – have the courage to ask, to try.

Best advice you’ve been given? Believe in yourself. My mother instilled in me a tough work ethic and also taught me if you believe in yourself, you can be whatever you want to be. When she was aged 16, her father went off to the Second World War and her mother had a stroke, so she was left to raise younger siblings. Like so many of her era, she was very independent and resourceful and taught me to stand on my own two feet, and to get up when you fall down.

ON SALE $179


If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Winston Churchill, Horatio Nelson and Anzac legend, John Simpson. Tea or coffee? Tea, white and strong. NRL or AFL? AFL – Collingwood (apologies).

“I have been sailing all my life, winning my first race at Sorrento when I was seven”

When was the last time you played sport and what was it? Sailing in 2005, now retired.

SAVE $30


What achievement are you most proud of? The idea to involve the Advance Australia campaign in the 1983 America’s Cup challenge. I have been sailing all my life, winning my first race at Sorrento when I was seven years old, so the America’s Cup was the holy grail for me. I was behind the idea to involve the Advance Australia campaign to fund the construction of more than one boat to be created over several years, which culminated in the syndicate winning the 1983 America’s Cup.

What are you watching right now? The news to stay informed and probably wouldn’t recommend it, as it is rarely good news.

NOW $699

Best day in your life and why? When my sons were born.

Your greatest regret? Not spending as much time with my family as I should.

Favourite song and why? Great Southern Land, by Icehouse – a great anthem for Australia.

NOW $169

If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? Homelessness – which is why I am supporting the Vinnies Community Sleepout.

MWP is made up of four savvy (and at times, crazy) publishers, five committed advertising staff, a super-efficient, timesheetchasing finance team, three hardworking and story-seeking journos, three hilarious and creative creatives, one resident real estate guru, a talented and proficient production manager (who is known to break into song numerous times a day), the cheeriest and loveliest admin assistant we’ve ever met, two super-organised distribution managers, an IT whiz, and the luckiest editor in the world who gets to work with this amazing team. Plus we can’t forget our 100+ strong distribution team, our amazing readers, columnists and advertisers!

August 15, 2008 marked the birth of My Property Preview.

DO YOU REMEMBER? QUOTE OF THE WEEK “To continuously improve one must ask these questions: What went well? What didn’t go well? What would you change?” – Anonymous, and the VERY repetitive MWP publishers who repeat this daily!

DID YOU KNOW? In 2008 in Australia there was no Netflix, Stan, Apple TV or Hayu, and only six million Australian households had internet access. Today, there are more than 14.2 million subscribers in our country. How times have changed!

THREE OF THE BIGGEST NEWS EVENTS OF 2008 1. The Beijing Olympics had nearly 11,000 athletes competing and broke the record for most viewed event on television. 2. Barack Obama was elected the 44th president of the US and the first African-American president.

WORD OF THE WEEK ‘Localistawesomest’

3. Kevin Rudd delivered the historical sorry speech for Australia’s Indigenous people, acknowledging the stolen generation.

LOOKING BACK Take a trip down memory lane as we remember the stories and events that have helped shape not only our region, but the wider community during the past decade. These are the stories that inspired us; these are the people who touched our hearts, and the issues that resonated with the community.

AUGUST 2008 Edition 1 My Property Preview was established on a relatively simple concept. Four local businessmen with a strong background in media formed a small publishing company with almost 50 local business owners who are our shareholders. It was a joint venture born out of the desire to take the ownership of real estate advertising and return it to the community. MPP launched and effectively halved the advertising rates and more than doubled the distribution of the previous offering, to assist local families seeking to sell their properties. TODAY In March 2012, My Property Preview was completely relaunched. In what has been described as a landmark move in the media industry, our 186th edition was branded as My Weekly Preview. Our team viewed a gap in the market and jumped on board to launch a fresh approach to media. The magazine hit the streets brimming with a mixture of local, state, national and international news. Our first signature feature story focused on a vital issue – the growing obesity problem affecting Australian kids, and the importance of exercise. It set the standard for our feature stories which are centred on global or national issues, but with a local twist.

JANUARY 2013 – Editi Edition 22 227 We caught up with up and coming surfer Julian Wilson, who at 24 had recently won his first Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Championship Tour win at the Rip Curl Pro in Portugal. He had also locked down the Nike US Open of Surfing title in California and the Breaka Burleigh Pro in 2012. Julian became a household name after appearing in Quicksilver’s Young Guns III film and then joining the ASP World Championship Tours in 2011. He finished his first year on the tour in ninth place and was named Rookie of the Year. The following year, he again finished ninth after winning three major events. The 2013 wins were the icing on the cake. “Those two wins definitely are career highlights for me now and I am quite satisfied to come away from 2012 with three event wins,” Julian told My Weekly Preview at the time. “To win a World Tour event [in Portugal] was major goal of mine for the year, so that felt great.” WHERE IS HE NOW? Julian graced our cover in January 2015 and again in 2017 (what can we say, we love him!). Last year was a big one for the local surfer who pulled his first win in three years, taking out the Billabong Pro Tahiti tour. He and wife Ashley also welcomed their first child earlier this year, a little daughter called Olivia Madison. Things continue to be on the up and up for Julian, who is competing strongly this season. He cleaned up at the 2018 WSL opening event on the Gold Coast in March and is currently ranked second on the men’s circuit. We are sure it won’t be the last we hear from this talented Sunshine Coast surfer.

MARCH 2013 – Edition 235 In what was one of the Sunshine Coast’s landmark political decisions, Noosa’s desire to split from the Sunshine Coast Regional Council came to a head with the announcement that the Coast’s northern residents had voted a resounding yes in favour of de-amalgamation and the re-establishment of a Noosa Council. While it had divided the region, Sunshine Coast Council mayor Mark Jamieson said he welcomed the clear-cut results as it provided certainty for the future. “We’ll continue to create the right conditions for jobs, protect the environment and preserve our lifestyle,’’ he said at the time. “This is an exciting time in the history of the Sunshine Coast – and it’s all our jobs to make the most of it.” Needless to say, the community hasn’t looked back.

S SEPTEMBER 2014 – Edition 311 It may have been a rusting hunk of iiron, but the decaying skeleton of the S S.S. Dicky evoked deep-seated e emotions among the Sunshine C Coast’s residents and visitors. For 122 years, the wreck sat on D Dicky Beach in Caloundra slowly w whittling away as the salt, water, wind aand sand destroyed its bones. In 2014, a taskforce rrecommended that the safest option w was to remove the famous wreck ffrom the beach. Following the decision, My Weekly P Preview took a look back at the iinteresting history of this iconic ship. 2018 New visitors to Dicky Beach may not know the history associated with that stretch of sand. In 2015 the wreck was dismantled and removed after Sunshine Coast Council deemed it a public safety risk. The council has plans to relocate the S.S. Dicky to an open space within the vicinity of Dicky Beach.


13/08/2018 3:15:54 PM

COVER STORY AUGUST 2015 – Edition 358 Kate McColm-Fulton is one name we will never forget. The then 24-year-old’s story was one that touched the hearts of many. The university student was on a nocturnal, self-care dialysis treatment plan in hospital three nights a week and living with the rare autoimmune disease Goodpasture syndrome. This bright and bubbly Coast ti tl waiting iti ffor the day she received a new woman was patiently kidney. She did not have the option of a live donor – her mother was not a match. In order for Kate to continue living her life, a stranger had to say goodbye to theirs. “It’s up to the universe,’’ Kate told My Weekly Preview at the time. “There are more people waiting for kidneys than any other organ. The wait list average is four years. “You’re only given in life what you can handle. This has given me a lot of empathy for other people in this situation and for people who can’t have dialysis.” WHERE IS SHE NOW? Following the publication of Kate’s story in My Weekly Preview, a handful of people came forward to offer their help. However, little did we know that on the eve the story was published, Kate had received a lifesaving phone call. Two days later, she was given a kidney transplant and underwent the two-and-a-half hour surgery. Three years on, Kate is happy, healthy and engaged to her partner Errol. “My health has never been better,’’ she says. “I am thankful for the amazing gift that has transformed my life. I have just graduated from a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) and am about to start practicing as a naturopath.”

MARCH 2018 – Edition 489 When Samuel Johnson says, “let’s talk”, you listen. The actor has retired from his career to focus on a vital medical campaign in the name of his sister Connie, who lost her battle with breast cancer in September 2017. Samuel is working alongside researchers, private enterprise and the bl to establish bl h A l ’ first metastatic tissue bank. public Australia’s TODAY Samuel’s charity Love Your Sister, which he formed with sister Connie in 2013, has raised a almost $8 million, and with a goal of $10 million, he has become a full-time cancer crusader. To donate to the cause visit loveyoursister.org.

MAY 2017 – Edition 447 Inspirational woman Turia Pitt spoke with My Weekly Preview in June 2017, when she was on the Coast to promote her book, Unmasked. The Australian icon spoke about her recovery from the fast-moving bushfire she was caught iin while hil competing ti iin an ultramarathon lt through Western Australia’s Kimberley region in 2011. The audience of more than 300 who listened to Turia at a Sunshine Coast Libraries event were in awe of her down-to-earth nature and zest for life. In the six years since the fire, she had competed in various challenging events and raised more than a million dollars for her favourite charity, Interplast. WHERE IS SHE NOW? Turia and her fiancé Michael Hoskin welcomed their gorgeous baby boy Hakavai, which means ‘dance of the water’ in Tahitian, in December. She is thriving as a mother and continues to work on her business, School of Champions.

JUNE 2017 – Edition 452 On the eve of National Blood Donor Week, we met with the couple behind Team Adem, a blood donation community that at the time had saved 50,000 lives. Brent and Lu Crosby lost their beloved son Adem in 2013 to acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Before his death, Adem founded Team Adem to raise money to help support families of seriously ill children diagnosed with cancer. In 2016, it was announced that the Comprehensive Cancer Care Unit at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital would be named the Adem Crosby Centre and in 2017, Team Adem was the largest Red25 Blood Donation Community in Australia. They had also raised $750,000, which was used to help a number of organisations including the Leukaemia Foundation. TODAY Since then the Team Adem community has continued this lifesaving work and donated thousands of dollars to various organisations. At the beginning of this year, they reported that the blood donation community made a lifesaving difference to 15,939 Australians in 2017, and the overall figure of lives saved by the community has surpassed 60,000.

OCTOBER 2017 – Edition 469 Donna Penny’s story resonated deeply with the community. This vivacious and lively young woman shared her emotional breast cancer journey to raise awareness during Pinktober. In 2013, the Warana mum to two children and three stepchildren was given the devastating news that her b d iin 2008, had returned. Her breastt cancer, fi firstt di diagnosed youngest son Kai was the inspiration for Donna’s book Why My Mummy?, which gained national media attention when it was published in 2016. “I can’t talk for all women with stage four breast cancer, but I’ve been lucky to live a full life,” Donna said. “I’m not scared of dying – I’m scared of leaving my kids, especially Kai, because he’s still at an age where I don’t want him to forget me. I just need to get him a bit older.” TODAY Donna has continued to fight the good fight, and although her health is failing, she continues to share the vital message of early detection. Her positivity continues to shine through her pain. “I’m not giving up, my heart and head won’t allow that,’’ she says. “I just want people to live life and follow their dreams because when you don’t have health and can’t do all the amazing things you want to do, life can get hard. Never take your health or happiness for granted – life is too short.”

MARCH 2018 – Edition 492 It was an honour to feature these talented sisters on the cover of My Weekly Preview. As the Gold Coast prepared for 6600 athletes and team officials to gather for the Commonwealth Games, we spoke with swimming stars Taylor and Kaylee McKeown. They joined 30 other Sunshine Coast athletes at the Games. Taylor, 23, was competing in the 200-metre breaststroke and 200-metre medley, while 16-year-old Kaylee’s main event was the 200-metre backstroke. HOW DID THEY FARE? While they didn’t come away with any medals, both girls did their country – and the Coast – proud. Kaylee placed fourth in both the 100- and 200-metre backstroke, while Taylor placed fifth in the 200-metre breaststroke. We know this won’t be the last we see of this pair, and we wish them the best of luck for their future.

A traditional Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony marked the dawning of a new era with the unveiling of a contemporary new name and brand for Lake Kawana Community Centre. Deputy mayor Tim Dwyer addressed the crowd, saying the rebranding was a significant milestone for the community-focused council facility. Deliciously Clean Eats provided a fantastic spread, while local singersongwriter Mason Hope played an impressive live set.

University of the Sunshine Coast researchers are about to embark on an ambitious study of the adolescent brain, and are calling on 500 local youths to get involved. Youth Mental Health and Neurobiology Professor Daniel Hermens (pictured) is leading the study at the Sunshine Coast Mind and Neuroscience – Thompson Institute, which is currently recruiting 12-year-olds in high school to be assessed several times a year for five years. Professor Hermens says the frequency of assessment for the Longitudinal Adolescent Brain Study (LABS) will be key to successfully gathering data to inform the development of evidence-based youth mental health programs. More information on the study is available at usc.edu.au/labs.

TONY KIRWAN’S APPEAL FOR HELP On a recent trip home to visit his parents, Destiny Rescue founder Tony Kirwan spoke to My Weekly Preview about his fight to save victims of human trafficking. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Tony Kirwan with a rescued girl


ony Kirwan’s recent visit to the Sunshine Coast was much more than a chance to spend time with his parents. It also marked a major milestone for Destiny Rescue, the organisation he founded in 2011, which is celebrating the rescue of its 3000th trafficking survivor from the sex trade. A raid on a brothel in the Philippines in early July with anti-trafficking police rescued 26 victims, taking the non-profit organisation’s total number of people rescued to 3006. Mr Kirwan says rescue/raid operations in collaboration with anti-trafficking police make up only 10 per cent of what the organisation does and the remaining 90 per cent is much more discreet. Rescuers go into the brothels posing as customers, build trust with the children being sold and then offer them an escape. Destiny Rescue has operations in Thailand, Cambodia, India, the Philippines,

Dominican Republic and an undisclosed location in Southeast Asia. Mr Kirwan has lived in Thailand since 2004 and is at the forefront of the rescue operations and major raids carried out in Southeast Asia. He regularly alters his appearance in order to go undercover to rescue children from bars and brothels. Speaking to My Weekly Preview while on the Coast, the father of three girls says he was moved to establish Destiny Rescue after overhearing two men in Bangkok talking about buying and selling children for an hour at a time to “do whatever they wanted to.” “Obviously we are going into these places with a mindset of rescuing children, so when you see guys doing the wrong thing to the kids right there in front of you, it is hard to maintain your cover and not let on that you want to stop it, to put it nicely. “Seeing the girls in that absolutely awful situation and seeing them on the other side

with a smile on their face and hope for the future is what recharges us to keep going to look for the next kids to rescue.” The former electrician says while rescuing 3000 people is a cause for celebration, it was “a drop in the ocean” and there was always work to be done. A major raid operation in the Philippines in March saw Destiny Rescue save 67 adult trafficking victims and the arrest of four pimps – their largest successful raid to date. Mr Kirwan says they had attempted the same raid at the end of last year, but a tip-off saw the premises empty when they arrived. As many as 70 children could have been on site during the March raid, but another tip-off saw them removed on the morning of the raid. “We were still able to rescue a large number of trafficking victims that day and since that raid, we have been able to track down and rescue three girls. It’s not a huge number, but it’s a start and we are now working with those girls to try to gather new intel on where the other girls are being held so we can find all of the others,” Mr Kirwan says. It costs on average about $1500 to rescue one child and the cost of each raid varies. “You can choose to do nothing, or choose to do something. Everybody has a different capacity, so it is up to each individual to decide what you can do to help these kids. “We have full-time staff on our rescue teams in six nations at the moment and we are always looking to expand. Our two biggest needs are funding and quality people, with skills and the right heart.”

HOMELESSNESS HAPPENS HERE IN PARADISE, TOO Almost a year ago, Sunshine Coast businessman Bill Darby endured a tought night curled up on the sand on Maroochydore beach covered with a cardboard box in an attempt to fend off the rain and secure a little warmth. It was the first time Mr Darby had slept rough and although he was surrounded by around 30 other members of the business community during the Vinnies Corporate and Community Sleepout, he recalls how lonely it felt when everyone drifted off into broken sleep and the rain started falling. “I remember it clearly. It was absolutely horrible and it is even more confronting when you realise there are people who are stuck in that situation every night,” he says. Despite the harrowing experience, Mr Darby is once again participating in the Sleepout and will join a group of local dignitaries, business people and community members to sleep rough on August 23 outside the Maroochydore Surf Club. It is all in the name of charity, to help raise awareness and funds for the more than 900 homeless men, women and children on the Sunshine Coast. Sunshine Coast Business Council Chair Sandy Zubrinich encourages people to get on board by either signing up to participate, or donating to those who are, with the aim of raising $50,000. “Meeting our target means we can support the renovation of the nine new units that have been purchased to provide over 9000 additional bed nights per year to those experiencing homelessness on the Coast. Of the 900 sleeping rough each night, 34 per cent are female and 16 per cent are children.” St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies) Northern Diocesian president John Harrison says: “Homelessness is largely invisible on the

LEADING THE WAY WITH A WARRIOR SPIRIT Sunshine Coast Council’s Jeanette Allom-Hill had a traumatic childhood – but she refuses to be defined by it. Instead, she chooses happiness over bitterness and endeavours to bring out the best in everyone she meets. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


“My childhood taught me incredible resilience,” she says. “You have two choices: either it can help make you strong or you can let it break you. It has shaped me in my ability to stand strong and not be scared. I know I can pretty much get through anything – there’s always some form of light at the other side.” The abuse Mrs Allom-Hill endured in her younger years didn’t break her; it made her the compassionate and understanding leader she is today. “With great power comes great responsibility,” she says. “For me, the most important thing at the council is to achieve trust. My people believe I’m here for the better good of them and the better good of the organisation. I do things like open door days and ‘making others great’ sessions. I’m connecting deep into the organisation and making sure people feel listened to, trying to be real and authentic. “My purpose is to be useful, honourable and compassionate. If I can be those things to anyone in the organisation, it would make me feel like I’ve been successful. lf I can role model vulnerable, authentic leadership for men and women and let them know it’s okay, you can be your true self and also be successful, that’s the only thing you can hope for.”

eanette Allom-Hill is known for her bubbly, outgoing personality. As group executive, business performance of Sunshine Coast Council since January, she has been leading with a sense of joy and purpose. One of the council’s most senior women, she’s wasted no time getting to know her staff and discovering their strengths. But behind her warm smile and welcoming demeanour is a story of triumph over shocking childhood trauma and the conscious choice to lift people up, rather than tear them down. A senior manager and highly respected expert in the fields of strategy and change leadership, she’s worked as an adjunct lecturer at the UNSW Business School and held leadership roles with the New South Wales Treasury, New South Wales Department of Transport, NBN Australia, Microsoft and Optus. She left her position as a business transformation advisor at the Boston Consulting Group to join the council, happy to put the hectic pace of Sydney behind her. “When you move away from a big city like Sydney or Melbourne or London and come to a great regional community, the ability to effect positive change becomes greater,” she says. “I find it more exciting because I think I’ve got a bigger opportunity to do something amazing. “I love this incredible collection of talented, passionate, intelligent people trying to drive positive change, not only inside council, but also people in the community I meet every day. I love everything about the Sunshine Coast. I love the sunshine – my number plate is ‘14sun’. One of my favourite quotes is, “Keep your face always towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.” They are telling words, as she has had to put some dark shadows behind her in order to become the vibrant, successful person she is today. Born in South Africa to a single mother, Mrs Allom-Hill was adopted as a baby by a strict Christian couple from the Dutch Reformed Church. She was raised by a black nanny, who she loved dearly. Tragically, when she was just six years old, her nanny was shot in the head in front of her by an intruder. She has little memory of the incident, but remembers her family moving to Australia soon after, fearing they would be next. The family settled in Berowra Waters in Sydney’s northern suburbs and Mrs Allom-Hill’s life didn’t become any easier. She was relentlessly bullied at school and abused at home. Her strictly religious parents allowed no music or TV in the house and she remembers little joy in her childhood.

1. Best advice you ever received? Vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage. Also, stay kind, it makes you beautiful.

“That was one of the reasons I got bullied so badly as a teenager,” she says. “I didn’t know anything about the bands and they’d tease me. They’d know all the words to the songs and I didn’t know what they were talking about. It took away my ability to connect. I was never allowed to go out and play. It alienates you in not being able to relate, always trying to pretend you know something you know nothing about.” Mrs Allom-Hill lights up when she talks about her children Tom and Will and husband Jeff, the three people she showers with love, kindness and compassion to make up for what she never had. She’s a shining example of someone who has refused to let her past define her. “Sometimes you look at leaders and you think they’re so perfect, that it was breeding or money that made them successful. I had none of those things. In myself, I’m very joyful. People always say they can hear me singing in the lift and laughing out loud. I’m just normal. I don’t feel like I have to be something that I’m not for anybody.





2. What was a turning point in your life? Standing at the door looking my birth mother in the eyes for the first time at 32. Standing at the grave of my great grandfather at Westminster Abby between the unknown Soldier and David Livingston. 3. What frustrates you? Lack of kindness, lack of passion or drive. Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire. 4. What advice would you give your 18-year-old-self? Live that life, the one that gives you breath and takes your breath away. What if I fall? But darling, what if you fly? 5. What do you want to be on your tombstone? I would rather die of passion than boredom. Find joy in the journey.

Evening at spectacular Cradle Mountain

Waterfall on the Overland Track

CRADLE MOUNTAIN TREKS INTO FAIRYLAND Breathtaking scenery unfolds at every turn on a self-guided hike at Cradle Mountain. WORDS: Gemma Najem, AAP.


t was a crisp morning with mountain mist hanging in the air when I unwittingly took my first step into a fairytale. At first glance, the short walking track at Cradle Mountain Lodge looked like any other charming trail that crisscrosses Tasmania’s treasured alpine terrain.But after turning a few corners, I stumbled upon a scene that took me back to my childhood imaginings, where elves and fairies ruled the land and woodland creatures lived in toadstools. Sunbeams shot through the tops of ancient pencil pines, the light danced off the frosted moss carpeting the undergrowth, and the air glimmered against dappled tree trunks

dressed with lichen and liverworts. Underscored by the strains of a babbling brook, stately roots of myrtle beech and leatherwood trees intertwined below, while gnarled branches protected the rainforest’s secrets above. Soon enough the trail turned into button grass moorland with white frosted tips and I was greeted with the finale of the aptlynamed Enchanted Walk – a cascading river. The 20-minute trail captures Cradle Mountain’s variety of terrains, which took me by surprise. After flying to Launceston the previous day and driving straight to the mountain, my friend and I had planned to lunch then

immediately head out – the early winter sunset left us with limited time. We set off from the famous Overland Track at Ronny Creek, where scores of hikers trek for 65 kilometres over six days to reach Lake St Clair, although our ambitions were simply to make it to Marion’s Lookout and back in time before the last bus at 4pm. Along the way I was struck by how quickly the landscape shifted around me – one minute I was squinting in the glaring sun while trying to spot wombats among an expanse of shrubs, the next I was in a rainforest full of pandani and sassafras climbing alongside a waterfall gushing down the mountainside. It’s no wonder that in 1910 botanist Gustav Weindorfer proclaimed: “This must be a national park for the people for all time. It is magnificent, and people must know about it.” It took years of tireless campaigning, but in 1922 a national park was created. By the time we reached Wombat Peak – 1105 metres above sea level, a quick quiz of other hikers determined that climbing up to Marion’s Lookout would be too risky under our time pressures, so we made the most of the view of Crater Lake to the right and Dove Lake and Lake Lilla to the left. One of the best decisions we made was to descend into Cradle Valley along a different

path, allowing us to pass by Wombat Pool and trek around Lake Lilla, thereby maximising our experience of the mountain. We found the spontaneous nature of a self-guided hike enlivening, from the unpredictable terrain to unexpected encounters with other tourists from around the world. Just be sure to record your trip intentions in a walker log book before you set off. Whether it was a stroke of luck or my assiduous friend pushing us along, we made it to the last bus at Dove Lake with barely two minutes to spare. Suddenly I didn’t regret turning my back on Marion’s Lookout. Altogether the six kilometre hike took about two hours and although I could have spent a whole day on the mountain, I was eagerly awaiting a dip in the spa bath back at the hotel, complete with Himalayan salts. The writer travelled with assistance from the Mantra Group and Tourism Tasmania.

IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE You can fly to Tasmania’s Launceston direct from Sydney in under two hours. Cradle Mountain is about a two-hour drive away, with a scenic route that passes through many small farming towns. STAYING THERE The King Billy Suite at Cradle Mountain Lodge is the definition of comfort splashed with luxury. With a spa bath, private outdoor hot-tub and personal fireplace, it’s easy to enjoy a technology detox. Prices vary. Visit peppers.com.au/cradle-mountain-lodge. PLAYING THERE There are many hikes, with varying difficulties in and around the national park. Fee for park entry is $16.50 per adult and $8.25 per child aged over five. You can go to the visitor centre and catch a bus to drop-off points at Ronny Creek and Dove Lake. For more information, visit discovertasmania.com.au.

conviction following the Royal Commission. This adds to the list of constraints on consumers – along with high levels of indebtedness, low savings rates, low wage growth, and a smaller wealth effect from housing. Macro picture – Business expenditure should improve as the drag from the mining investment downturn fades, while nonmining construction spending and public infrastructure projects will contribute.

Chris Harris, Ord Minnett Buderim.



ustralia’s economy has tracked better than forecast so far this year, largely due to net exports and government spending. Households remain key to sustaining confidence in the economy’s underlying strength, however, and there is little evidence of improvement. Domestic view – There has been no significant change to our economic outlook for Australia, which assumes economic growth remains below potential at 2.5 per cent annualised by year end. This reflects fading contributions from net exports and still-subdued household spending. If anything, risks are skewed to the downside, as our anticipated slow down in housing credit growth to four per cent from six per cent over 18 months gains more

“Australia’s economy has tracked better than forecast‌â€? The key for Australia in the second half is how much consumers will trim spending if pressure on household finances is not alleviated. We see spending growth in 2018 being lower than in 2017. Inflation – Commodity price pressures, including higher food prices, may see inflation pick up. A lack of wage growth given excess capacity in the labour market, however, means inflation should still stay towards the low end of the two to three percent target band of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).

Interest rates – We expect the RBA to stay on hold, rather than risk a credit crunch by raising interest rates, and the central bank’s decision to leave its cash rate unchanged at 1.5 per cent at its August meeting only reinforces our view. The market is already undertaking some tightening on behalf of the RBA – with banks imposing tougher lending standards. Currency – The Australian dollar has fallen five per cent this year versus the US dollar, but given monetary policy in Australia lags the US – along with less upside to iron ore prices – the currency should stay in the low US$0.70s range. As a commodity currency, given our greater economic reliance on Asia, we would suffer comparatively more if trade conflicts escalated and threatened global growth. Our view is the above-mentioned risks will keep markets choppy. This outlook does not necessitate turning bearish, but it is worth giving your portfolio a health check to ensure it is sufficiently robust to mitigate the near-term risks.

WOMEN IN TECH With gender disparity a topic at the forefront of modern discourse, leading technology career platform Honeypot, has released the 2018 Women in Tech Index. The results offer a view on gender-based employment inequalities both at large and in the technology sector. The index has found that Australia is placed second out of 41 OECD and EU countries for the number of women in the technology industry. The results show 28 per cent of the people in Australian tech industries are women. While that places the country in good stead, there was still a 20 per cent gender pay gap between men and women in the industry. “Gender parity in the workplace is not just an ethical or moral issue, but also an economic one: McKinsey found that $12 trillion could be added to global GDP by 2025 by advancing women’s equality,� Honeypot co-founder Emma Tracey says.

Sami Muirhead marvels at the role her mobile phone plays in her life and wonders whether she could one day use it to become a YouTube star.

Candice Holznagel says MWP has proven print media can thrive when done well and quality journalism still has a place in today’s society.


ur phones have taken over our lives. Well, my life anyway. My phone actually does not ring after I dropped it on concrete. Which is kind of ironic, because I use it for everything else except speaking. It texts, accesses Instagram, maps, Google, my playlists and emails just fine, but you cannot speak to me on my phone. I am pretty sure the phone was invented to speak on, not to be used as a camera with really cool filters. I spend more time with my phone than I do with my friends or husband. This broken phone situation cannot last. Obviously, I need to speak to my husband, kids and boss at some stage of my week, because one day there is going to be an emergency. But for now, we all just text and live in our little silent bubble. In fact, my hubby and I do a very sexy check-in text at dusk every day – to check if one of us needs to buy milk or bread. Yep, a pretty steamy chat goes down at about 5.30pm while I am at work that goes along the lines of this: Me: “Hey babe! Do you think you could get a two-litre full cream on your way home and some multigrain please?” Him: “No probs. Might go crazy and get some white bread. LOL. I will grab some dog food too.” Me: “White bread! I married the man of my dreams.” Oh, how times have changed when it comes to what we used to text each other. And sometimes, if I want to throw my hubby a little afternoon delight, I will text

him a picture of the kids. Yep, we know how to party. The reason I have not had the phone fixed is the plain fact I am lazy. I know the phone will be replaced, as it is under warranty, but I also know I have 13 thousand photos on my phone and my to-do list for the last three years has been to delete some of this spam. But there are also really precious memories of birthdays and Christmases in the thousands of blurred images and non-flattering selfies. Once I download the photographs to my laptop, they do not stand a chance of ever being looked at again. On top of that, my husband wants me to bat for the other team – he wants me to switch from Apple to Samsung. Have you heard about that kid on YouTube who makes $11 million a year reviewing toys? I kid you not. This little seven-year-old has a cult following and my three kids worship at his endless toy alter. Ryan is the host of videos shot in his home by his mum and dad. Ryan also makes me feel I have failed in life. How can a kid in Year 2 make enough money to buy a couple of small islands complete with private planes, cocktail slushy machines and 24-7 massages on offer? Because that is the practical way I would spend my money if I made that insane amount every year. So maybe I need to fix my phone at long last and start a sweatshop at home for producing You Tube videos.

sat, fresh-faced and eager to learn. A naive and excited 18-year-old set to unearth the key to communication in the media industry. I was one in a group of about 25 university journalism students that day. I can still remember the coolness of the metal chair, the pen clenched in my hand, at the ready to record the wisdom to be imparted by our professor. He walked into the room, a heavyset man breathing heavily and blustering, an important briefcase in hand. He plonked it down with a thud, turned, took in the excited faces and said seven words that have stayed with me to this day. “Newspapers will be dead in 10 years.” It certainly wasn’t the inspiration we had expected. You could almost hear our dreams and hopes come crashing to the floor. I took an immediate dislike to this man (I am known to make snap judgments) and decided then and there to prove him wrong. I didn’t let his tone – his realism and foresight – deter me from what I always wanted: to write and share the stories of people who needed to be given a voice. Fast forward 17 years and here I am. I’d be a fool to ignore the fact the media industry is changing, and at an unprecedented rate. Our growing obsession and reliance on technology has seen to that. Consumers, including readers, have changed the way in which they source information. Today there are digital

platforms, social media sites filling our newsfeeds with up-to-date information, and more television options than ever before. What this has done is fragmented our media usage. It has ultimately divided the audience share. And while we continue to hear the phrase that spawned my determination and career all those years ago, “print is dead”, there is plenty of evidence counteracting that claim. Just look through these pages. Yes, media isn’t what it used to be, and with ever-growing technological advancements, it will never be again. But what these changes have done is shown how print – when done correctly – still has a place in society. The toughest survive and survive we have. When this magazine launched 10 years ago, naysayers said it wouldn’t survive three months. But here we are, doing what we do best. The key? Connection, community and getting back to basics. Grassroots journalism and business at its best. Success in this field isn’t only about being aware of your competitors. It’s about changing with the times and of most importance, listening to a community and delivering accordingly. It’s about quality; well-researched journalism that will trump fake news and poorly-informed comment 100 per cent of the time. Quality journalism, of all forms and in all types of publications, still has a place in today’s world. Ten years and counting.

Candice Holznagel has spent the past 15 years working across multiple media and communication platforms. She joined the MWP team in 2014 and is the magazine’s editor.

With Mercury now direct in your creativity zone, make sure you capitalise on your fiery creative talents. But, don’t power ahead with actual projects until next week, when Mars (your ruler) finally moves forwards.

Now that Mercury is moving forwards again, a frustrating family matter should gradually get better. Avoid being a stubborn bull, though! You’ll find that, the more flexible and understanding you are, the more quickly things will improve.

After a long and exceedingly exasperating three weeks, Mercury (your patron planet) is finally moving forwards, so your natural talent for endless questioning, constant chatter and continual movement will start returning in spades.

Mercury is now direct, but disruptive Mars is still reversing through your relationship zone, so communicating with loved ones will continue to be frustrating until next week. Don’t commit to an ambitious new plan unless you’re sure you have the time.

14 15











LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




Thank goodness Mercury is finally moving forwards! Communication should start to improve and delayed projects will receive a welcome nudge. But personal energy levels won’t pick up until next week, when Mars moves forwards in your wellbeing zone.

Over the last three weeks, many Virgos have been in hermit mode. You’re starting to feel more sociable, but things won’t really pick up until next week, when motivation planet Mars moves forwards in your social and entertainment zone.

Communication should gradually improve, as Mercury moves forwards in your friendship and networking zone. Do all you can to smooth over disagreements and get things moving in a positive direction.

Don’t waste precious time worrying, especially at work. Mercury is direct, so connect with colleagues and keep them up-to-date with your plans. The weekend full moon encourages you to look at a relationship with a child, lover, or friend.

TRIBUTE TO JAZZ LEGEND Simon Drew and the Old Bay Road trio will present a tribute to Chet Baker, one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 21st century. Renowned vocalist and trumpeter Mr Drew, together with Brisbane musicians Rohan Somasekaran (piano), Murray Donald (guitar) and John Smallcombe (bass), will pay tribute to the memory of Mr Baker in a gorgeous collection of west coast jazz standards at The Bison Bar in Nambour on August 25 at 2pm. Tickets are available at stickytickets.com.au or at the door.

With their debut album to be launched on August 31, local ‘earth rockers’ Flaskas are riding high. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.




hris Flaskas had paved a successful career as a solo artist, but he says joining forces with a former schoolmate and two other talented musicians to create a band has undoubtedly reinvigorated his passion for music. Mr Flaskas, Duncan Barker, Jasper Lambert and Clint Dove, collectively known as Flaskas, will launch their debut album Kingdom Come at Solbar on August 31 as part of the Horizon Festival. Flaskas’ trademark sound is described as ‘earth rock’, an organic high-power blend of alternative world, coastal roots, funk, folk, blues and Indigenous music utilising various native instruments. And the Sunshine Coast residents have wasted no time making their mark on the industry. In their first 12 months as a band, they supported Wild Marmalade, Kallidad and Kooyeh and shared the stage with industry legends Boy & Bear, Busby Marou, Tijuana Cartel, Timberwolf and secured spots in six music festivals. “We promised our fans six months of new music releases and we released Feeling the Rhythm in April and Afterglow in June with both being featured on MTV and Triple J as well as being played on more than 50 radio stations nationally and internationally,” Mr

Flaskas says. “We can’t wait to showcase more work from our album at the launch. It was recorded live to tape, old-school like The Beatles, at Heliport Studios here on the Coast, and more locals, UnReel media, filmed our music videos in some beautiful Coast locations. “The Coast is a creative hub and we are blessed to have the scenery, clean air and sense of community here.” See Flaskas at Solbar on August 31 at 7.30pm supported by Mantis Empire and Khan Harrison Band. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Delifish in Buderim offers everything you love in a fish and chippery and more, with great fish burgers, wraps and a signature picnic box, which includes a gourmet salad, quiche, wrap, sandwiches, cheese, dried fruits, cakes, chocolate, condiments, dips and bread.


If you are looking for a brekkie that will warm the soul and nourish the body, try the winter oats served with poached seasonal fruit at Murray’s Cafe.


Maroochy Surf Club’s new menu is causing a stir, with a wide range of mouthwatering options waiting to be experienced on their lunch menu. Try the new chorizo, cashew and coriander arancini.


If you like to be spoilt for choice, the extensive menu at Maroochy Bridge Hotel will be sure to please. With a wide range of signature meals to choose from, dinner will be a walk in the park.



Sound Crowd is a community choir event held in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi. The next event will be an all ages affair on August 26 from 3pm to 5pm. Director Analiese Long says Sound Crowd is an event where you, the audience, become the choir for the afternoon. “Rest assured, there are no auditions and there is no preparation required by choristers before the Sound Crowd events. Tickets available at the door.

READER’S CORNER THE WORLD’S WORST CHILDREN 3 Author: David Walliams Publisher: HarperCollins RRP: $24.99 Reviewer: Noah Pearson, aged 10

If you are one of England’s worst children, you will probably find yourself in this book. But if you’re not in this book then you’d be delighted to know you can read it

Games and in sprinting at the 1998 Commonwealth Games and 2000 Olympic Games. Ms Peris’ political career began in 2013 when she joined the Australian Labor Party, following ‘a captain’s pick’ invitation from then Prime Minster, Julia Gillard. Her new book, Nova – Finding My Voice features a collection of memorable, passionate and influential speeches from her political career. Full of inspirational words about race, justice and injustice, hope, freedom and change, the book includes her speeches on the referendum, National Sorry Day, closing the gap for Aboriginal Australia and her inaugural senate speech. DATE: Thursday, August 30 TIME: 6pm, for a 6.30pm start LOCATION: Maroochydore Library PRICE: $29 Bookings essential. Live music, refreshments and cash bar provided.

without feeling a twinge of guilt about what you’ve done to your parents over the years. I’m not one of the world’s worst children (though I think my mum would disagree on that), so I can actually write this review for you. So, the characters, as you guessed, are extremely naughty but some of the things they do that make them bad are pretty gross. Unfortunately for me I was reading one of the grosser ones while having a meat pie (I won’t get into the details), but most of it is fine. Especially Boastful Barnabus, my personal favourite, and a girl who thinks she knows kung fu and is beating up her town. So pretty much I recommend this book overall, but if you’re easily offended just buy The Secret Garden.

uring the winter months, it can be harder to find the motivation for early morning walks or regular exercise. Yet studies show that exercising our minds can be just as important as exercising our

bodies, so not all is lost. Playing board games is a great way to keep our brains fit and has been linked to a lowered risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Why not get together with neighbours or friends and play a board or card game, for your brain’s sake? It’s not only a great way to connect with others, but can also ward off depression. At Nature’s Edge Buderim, residents have formed more than 20 social groups including mahjong, 500 Club and monthly trivia nights. There are dozens of events each month that contribute to the active and healthy lifestyle on offer in the community. Consider becoming part of the active lifestyle community at Nature’s Edge Buderim. Your body and your brain will thank you.

Ian and Allison at Halcyon Greens Older couples looking to downsize in retirement have more options than ever thanks to a new government incentive introduced from July 1, although experts warn that it pays to get advice before acting. In a move aimed at unlocking housing supply, the federal government is encouraging Australians aged over 65 to sell their homes by providing tax concessions to a significant portion of the sale proceeds. Individuals can contribute up to $300,000 to super, and couples up to $600,000, from the proceeds of the sale of their home to secure healthy tax concessions. According to Terri Bradford, the national manager of

All the reasons to choose

Wealth Management at Morgans Financial Limited, the benefits for older Australians can be significant even though the broader strategy is tackling the housing affordability crisis by freeing up larger homes for growing families. “Until now, being unable to put the proceeds of selling their family home into super has discouraged some seniors from downsizing,” Ms Bradford says. “This means many larger family homes remain occupied by only singles or couples. This new incentive encourages more over 65s to downsize which, in turn, frees up more homes for younger families. “It also allows more people aged 65 and over to move to housing that is better suited to their needs in retirement.” Under the new rules, this one-time only arrangement applies to those who have owned their home for more than 10 years. The new contributions are exempt from existing work and age tests and they are over and above any other voluntary contributions the person is currently able to make. However, Ms Bradford warns the new incentives may not be for everyone. “If you are not a fully self-funded retiree, the incentive may impact your age pension entitlements,” she says.


Tam and Dorothy With recent research showing that loneliness in older age can be more detrimental to health than obesity and smoking, could friendships forged in aged care be the most important friendships we could make? That’s certainly the case for Tam and Dorothy from Seasons Aged Care Mango Hill. The pair become instant friends over the dining table in their first week of moving to Seasons and have just celebrated their eight-year friendship anniversary. With both Tam and Dorothy’s husbands passing away before they moved to Seasons, their friendship has helped to fill the gap in their lives for a trusted confidante and companion. “It’s great to have a good friend, especially when we’ve both lost our husbands. You feel very alone when you’ve lost your husband after many years and we were both married for a long time. You need someone you can trust the way you trusted your partner and that’s how we’ve become,” Dorothy says. “We just laugh together and enjoy each other’s company. Our families get on well too,” Tam says. “Yes, we have good families and they interact well. We talk about our families. Tam’s got three daughters and I have three sons and we talk about the differences in what they are and what they do. It’s a happy situation,” Dorothy adds. Seasons Aged Care’s communities across Southeast Queensland all focus on encouraging friendships old and new with active social calendars and lifestyle centres. Book your tour today.

The ageing Australian population, soaring house prices and stock market fluctuations are all ongoing contributors to changes in the traditional living arrangements across Australia. These factors can lead to adult children living with their parents for longer or elderly people moving in with their children. But this doesn’t mean everything has to change. There are plenty of options to keep everyone happy and healthy. What is the sandwich generation? The sandwich generation typically refers to people aged in their forties to sixties who provide financial, emotional and environmental support to their adult children and ageing parents. They try to provide the best for everyone in their family, but often they feel like the ‘meat in the sandwich’. For many people, providing support to

their children and parents is not the issue; it’s sometimes about finding the time and resources to support everyone equally. When people are caring for their older parents, especially when it wasn’t planned for, it can often feel stressful. Not because they don’t want to provide care and support, but because they can’t always spread their time evenly across the fold. As people get older, their needs often change and extra support is usually required. Making a family club sandwich Adding more people to the mix can create less pressure. If your mum or dad is living with you or they need help in their own home, an extra set of hands around the place can help to provide support when you are otherwise engaged. Bringing in someone to assist with the day- to-day activities can also lead to stronger relationships between family members as they get to spend quality time together doing the things they enjoy. Just Better Care can provide support at home and in the community, including personal care, respite support, social and lifestyle support for older Australians, and people with a disability.

name exactly, and why is it so popular? Fast taking hold in Australia, pickleball is a blend of tennis, badminton and table tennis.

Music on Kings – Hot August Night DARREN PERCIVAL AND HIS EIGHT-PIECE BAND TAKE TO THE STAGE DURING HORIZON FOR A NEIL DIAMOND INSPIRED NIGHT OF ’70S MUSIC. When did your love of singing and music start? It must have been very early on, as I can’t remember a time when I haven’t enjoyed singing. I grew up in the early ’70s and music was always on in our family home. I’d put on backyard gigs with my ukulele. What has been your biggest career highlight? Singing a duet with Keith Urban on the grand final of the first series of The Voice was a highlight and singing at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall was thrilling in 1986 when I was 15. Various events through those years are highlights. What else are you working on at the moment? My company Resonance Management helps singers, artists, actors, students and speakers with their voices. I write music and enjoy the work I do with Two Good, an inspiring charity in Sydney.

MUSIC TO THE MAX Check out this incredible line-up of home-grown, interstate and international music. Head to the Horizon Festival website to get your tickets now!

Q&A: With slam poet Anisa Nandaula THE BUNKER SHOWCASES SPOKEN WORD PERFORMANCE IN A COLLABORATION BETWEEN PERIPHERAL ARTS AND WRITERS REPUBLIC. SEE ANISA DURING THE POETRY COMPETITION HEATS ON AUGUST 27 AT SOLBAR. Where did your interest in slam poetry and storytelling come from? My interest in slam poetry and storytelling came from listening to Def Jam Poetry from the States. I didn’t know what the poets were doing or that it was an art form, all I knew was that it made me feel something. I wanted to do that for other people. When did you first realise you had a way with words? I wouldn’t describe myself as having a way with words, I’d rather say that words are the first place my heart found home. I found this home when I was 11 and my English teacher said she liked my writing. It was actually pretty bad, but she gave me confidence. Why do you think spoken word and poetry is such a powerful form of creative expression? I think it’s powerful because of the artistic freedom it grants. You are able to communicate messages in so many ways using your words, body, voice, silence, song and eye contact in the sum of five minutes. You can really touch someone’s heart in that timeframe. You’ve had a really successful few years – Queensland Slam Poet Champion in 2016 and second place in the Australian National Slam Poetry finals. What do you love about competing? What has been the biggest career highlight for you? I love meeting other poets and hearing them speak so passionately about what they care about. The only reason I am where I am is because of the amazing poets that have mentored and guided me along the way. So I feel blessed to meet such people through competitions. What do you think is driving the emergence and growth of slam poetry? I think it’s a realisation that there is something wrong with the world when governments decide it’s okay to take children from their parents, turn asylum seekers away or build statues instead of increasing funding towards domestic violence. I believe consciousness is shifting and people are realising we need to speak and voice our values.

Art and our environment THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE SUNSHINE COAST INSPIRES MANY ARTISTS. THIS YEAR, HORIZON FEATURES THREE ARTWORKS THAT EMPHASISE THE BEAUTY OF OUR SURROUNDINGS – WITH URGENT CALLS FOR CONSERVATION. A performative environmental installation created by Manning Daly Art, Patterns in the Landscape – Tidal will take place on the beaches of Caloundra, Coolum and Mooloolaba. Performers will inscribe fluid, large-scale artworks on the sand, revealing patterns through coordinated movement and interaction. Each unique piece of land art grows, inhabits the landscape for a

moment and is then washed away by the tide – integral parts of a cycle, reflecting the transience and ephemeral nature of our valuable landscape and creating new ways of seeing familiar landscapes. At USC Sunshine Coast, an ephemeral public art piece created from recycled plastic milk bottles will come to life in the form of a house. Created by artists Yanni

Van Zijl and Pam Walpole of Art for Artsake, The Green House will be covered in oceaninspired images and bushland shapes. The Green House will be open to explore all day and by night, the artwork comes alive through a colourful and immersive light projection display, created by Brian Keayes and Mic Black. Songs of Emzara is a tribute to the species who struggle for survival.

Performed in the beautiful Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden by Dangerous Song, a collaboration between Lizzie O’Keefe and Linsey Pollak, this event will take us to a world of sound where humans and animals unite, with projections of images of our endangered planet a visual treat. Turn to page 50 for further details.

Pop culture in action DEANNA ADAMS IS THE CREATIVE PRODUCER OF MANAFEST, A CELEBRATION OF POP, ASIAN AND ALTERNATIVE CULTURE THROUGH ART, PERFORMANCE AND GAMING. The world of pop culture is making its first appearance during Horizon Festival 2018 – but what exactly is pop culture? DeAnna Adams, creative producer of Manafest, gave us the lowdown. Ms Adams says people see pop culture as a lowbrow form of art, but in reality, much of what we consider ‘high culture’ today started off as popular culture. “Consider William Shakespeare who wrote for the masses, invented words, and enraged his high-class colleagues with his ‘common’ playhouses. “Today, pop culture spans so many forms of media: books, comics, fashion, street art, music. “That’s why I love it and why I think so many are drawn to it. It can reach out to all classes and all minds, set trends and change the status quo. That’s my kind of art!” During Manafest, you will be transported into this fun world. Enjoy a cosplay show, street art, cinema screenings and games. “Manafest isn’t just for enthusiasts, it’s for everyone wanting a little taste of the immersive world of cosplay and pop culture. It’s about bringing the art of pop culture to life.”


Q&A: Scrap Shop Props SCRAP SHOP PROPS (AKA OARIN TREMONT) WAS THE WINNER OF THE RECENT COSPLAY COMPETITION AT SYDNEY SUPANOVA. What’s your cosplay specialty? Replica armour, where I use ‘foamsmithing’ and cosplay electronics to create spectacular mechanical looking pieces. What made you start cosplaying? I started cosplaying at the beginning of 2016. I originally started with LARP (live action role-playing), making things for both my character and the game itself. From there I dove into a Mandalorian Mercenary; it was terrible but I was hooked. My best friend and I started making cool things together, and Scrap Shop Props was born. What is your best cosplay costume? Technically my best cosplay would be our full-scale Reinhardt from Overwatch. With the armour on, I am more than seven feet tall. It was a massive undertaking, with a lot of engineering going on inside of it. How long does it take to plan and make an outfit? Time requirements for a costume is a real ‘how long is a piece of string?’ situation. We did the Doom Slayer in 18 days, but other costumes we’ve worked on have been weeks in the planning. If it’s more than a month or three from start to finish, then usually something was either broken or not delivered.

Q&A: Henchwench HENCHWENCH CREATES TECHNICALLY ENGINEERED COSTUMES AND WAS A WEAPONS AND ARMOUR TECHNICIAN ON THE LORD OF THE RINGS FILMS. What made you start cosplaying? I originally started cosplaying because I was a massive Star Wars nerd (I still am!) when I was 16, back when I was working part-time after school on the Lord of the Rings movies in the armory. I made myself some Jedi robes – they were awful, but I kept at it. I had a long break from cosplay while I studied costume at NIDA, then in 2015 I made a Fallout 3 Lone Wanderer cosplay after winning a trip to PAX. I’ve been hooked since then. What’s the best cosplay you’ve done to date? My usual answer is the latest one, since I try to push my skills on every build and delve into something new. My most technical cosplay is probably my World of Warcraft Orc Shaman, which contains around 20 metres of Arduino-controlled custom programmed lighting, motor controlled rotating lava orbs, four smoke machines and scratch crafted prosthetics. How long does it take to plan and make an outfit? Planning can be anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of months. My Mei costume from Overwatch took around three weeks of work, whereas my Orc Death Knight from World of Warcraft was closer to six weeks. I also built Galena from Quake Champions in 18 days. Come and see Henchwench as she takes the stage at Manafest.

Dawn Awakening – an evocative finale for the Horizon Festival DANCERS, SINGERS AND MUSICIANS GATHER BY THE FIRE TO WELCOME THE DAWNING OF A NEW DAY The memorable Dawn Awakening has become the signature finale event of the Horizon Festival. An evocative, ceremonial celebration where past, present and future are celebrated by dawn at Stumers Creek – a place of gathering, remembering, dreaming and ritual. Last year, more than 1000 people gathered on the beach in the

pre-dawn darkness to welcome the sunrise on the final day of the Horizon Festival. This year’s event pays respect to the glossy black cockatoo. Its spirit of collective strength will be honoured through music, dance and spoken word. The performance is enhanced by stunning visual art installations as well as projections that light up the surrounding natural canvas of Stumers Creek.

The line-up features Kabi Kabi traditional custodian Lyndon Davis and Gubbi Gubbi Dance, multi-awardwinning singer/songwriter Shellie Morris, vocalist Kacey Patrick, dancer Soraya Fewquandie-Scott, guitarists Robbie James and Andrew Veivers. Joining them are Cool Harmonies, Coolum State School choir and projection artist James Muller.

The weather can be quite cool at dawn, so make sure you take a blanket and a picnic rug or beach towel to sit on. Check the Horizon Festival website for parking information.

Visit horizonfestival.com.au for ticket details.

Q&A: Soda_Jerk on the message behind their movie CREATORS OF THE FILM TERROR NULLIUS, SODA_JERK IS A TWO-PERSON ART COLLECTIVE WHO WORK AT THE INTERSECTION OF DOCUMENTARY AND SPECULATIVE FICTION WITH AN INTEREST IN THE POLITICS OF IMAGES. Tell us about the political sentiment behind TERROR NULLIUS. Where did the idea come from? It came from a sense of rage and utter frustration with the state of politics in this country. Of watching the horror unfold on Manus Island, or the way that large portions of the federal budget are still being sunk into expensive monuments to Captain Cook. It’s debilitating to encounter these obscene national narratives and feel powerless to effect change. So we wanted to create a vigilante fable of social justice that reversed these dynamics of power. What is your favourite Australian film of all time? The early art films of Tracey Moffatt are some of the best experimental films that we’ve seen anywhere ever. We also get pretty fanatical about the ozploitation films of Brian-Trenchard Smith. Tell us about the creative process. What comes first – storyline or footage? Both aspects are always in simultaneous development, feeding back into each other as we go. So the storyline is constantly shifting as new samples are discovered and the edit builds and morphs.

How have audiences responded to TERROR NULLIUS? We’re big fans of cinema that encourages audience misbehaviour, so it’s been awesomely satisfying to be in screenings where crowds cheer and heckle at the screen. But even more moving for us is the people who have reached out to say that they have felt empowered by the film. Tell us about the first film you made together. Our first collaboration would be Hollywood Burn, a bombastic anti-copyright epic we began in 2002. But as kids there were much earlier, dodgier collaborations. In high school we worked together on a shambolic remake of ’80s film Heathers. How is life in New York? Despite the truly terrifying shadow cast by apocalyptic politics, there is a lot to love about life in NY. We work out of a little studio in Bedstuy and are part of a collective that runs a micro-cinema in Brooklyn. The resilient communities around us also make it possible to keep faith in the fight and not be crushed under the devastating weight of the world news each morning.

REAL ESTATE ICON PREDICTS BRIGHT FUTURE John McGrath announces the Sunshine Coast is the hottest property market. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


s My Property Preview celebrates its 10th anniversary, it is a good time to reflect on how the property market has evolved in the past decade. McGrath founder and executive director John McGrath has labelled the region one of the best locations in Australia for property investment, with all the attributes of strong capital growth moving forward and McGrath Buderim principals Chris Pace and Damien Michael are celebrating his comments. “John McGrath has been almost ‘uncanny’ in his predictions on the Australian real estate market for many decades, so we are very happy for John to acknowledge the Sunshine Coast as a national hot spot,” Mr Pace says. It is showing the Sunshine Coast is really coming into its own, with a long history of being a paradise for retirees. Mr Michael says there is no doubt the Coast buyer market has diversified in recent years. “Over our past few cycles, retirees were the strongest group on the Sunshine Cost. “We are now seeing many young families sell up in Sydney, Melbourne and

Damien Michael and Chris Pace move to the Sunshine Coast with change in their pocket,” he says. “While the lifestyle has been recognised for many decades, it has been the job prospects that have let the Sunshine Coast down over the past few cycles. The job market on the Sunshine Coast is now a different proposition with all the infrastructure projects either in full swing or scheduled into the future. We have the hospital, Maroochydore CBD, airport, several major road and highway

upgrades, Harmony estate, and the masterplanned Aura, just to name a few. “These young families are really exciting as they bring new skills, energy and culture to the Sunshine Coast.” Mr McGrath says the “enormous amount of infrastructure” has placed the Sunshine Coast on a whole new platform when it comes to attracting investors and new residents to the area. “I’ve been saying for a few years that I think southeast Queensland – and in

particular, the Sunshine Coast – is one of the areas in the whole southern hemisphere to be investing right now and I believe there is an incredible opportunity to see significant growth over the next few years,” Mr McGrath says. “I think it has all the attributes of strong capital growth going forward and the lifestyle is, as the locals know, one of the best you will find on the planet Earth.” Mr McGrath says with the Sydney and Melbourne markets having shown unprecedented growth over the past five or six years, it was highly likely investors and owner-occupiers in those areas would turn their attention to southeast Queensland. “When people see what they can get in Sydney and Melbourne for say a million dollars versus the Sunshine Coast, there’s going to be people investing and in fact, moving up there. Equally, there is a terrific window of opportunity to capitalise on the growth that we’ve seen in the southern states.” Mr McGrath says with technological advancements enabling residents to telecommute for work every day, a ‘sea change’ is now within reach for many workers.

with MWP’s man in the water

I have been walking my dog on the beach twice a day for 11 years without incident. But, in the past two weeks uneducated fishermen have left baited hooks lying around like popcorn on the floor of the cinemas. The result? A $2500 vet bill. This is on top of the $2000 bill from two weeks ago. There goes my Indo trip – GONE. It is unbelievable how stupid or naïve they are. On a brighter note, conditions are amazing and the whales should start coming through so enjoy the show. And, if you are a fisherman take some bloody responsibility for your processes and duty of care.
