FROM THE EDITOR

I

’ve just returned from a quick trip to Sydney, and while it was wonderful to spend time celebrating with loved ones in a vibrant Australian city, it has made me appreciate our beautiful peace of paradise a little more. The unique balance of environment and development, our pristine beaches, blue skies and weather are what make the Sunshine Coast truly special. The cold is not something I enjoy and after a few chilly days in the city, I’m happy to be home and packing away my scarves, boots and blazers. Yes, I’m welcoming spring with gusto. Bring on the warmer nights, the pretty skies and the beach days. Spring is also traditionally a time of renewal and reinvigoration. So throw open those windows, let the light in and enjoy the months ahead. To celebrate we chat with some familiar faces, including TV personality Shelley Craft, and get their top tips for spring cleaning the home and body. We also have plenty of local faces in this week’s edition including the inspiring ceramic artist Shannon Garson, who is inviting people into her Maleny home as part of an artistic workshop. You can read the story on page 18. In travel, we jet to Seattle and uncover an interesting US city and, in local news, we chat with Australian band The Waifs ahead of the Caloundra Music Festival. Plus, we have our monthly business feature starting on page 35. Sit back, enjoy, and have a great weekend!

COVER STORY

Who doesn’t love spring? The weather is starting to warm up, the days are beautiful and we can pack away our winter boots (hello sandals!). Spring is a time of renewal, a time to reinvigorate different areas of your life. It is the month traditionally associated with spring cleaning the home, but why not take a holistic approach and bring new life to your health, your body and your home?

SPRING CLEAN THE HOME

If you are anything like us, you aren't looking forward to the dreaded spring clean. But with a few simple ideas, you can make this evil necessity a little easier. Jody Allen (pictured) from the Stay at Home Mum website has a solid reputation among Australian mothers as the go-to woman for household tips and ideas. Here are some of her favourite spring cleaning tricks. Get the family involved – Assign a room or

10 My Weekly Preview | September 7, 2018

certain chores to everyone and then promise a reward at the end of the weekend. Set a weekend – Mark it on the calendar. Make a plan and stick to it. Make a checklist of chores – If you know what you are up against, the job will go faster. Get the cleaning equipment ready – Have everything you need the day before. Go to the shops and stock up and then use a basket to carry the supplies from room to room. Don’t forget the walls – Wash the walls from the top down to avoid streaking. Dust from the top and work down – This prevents the spread of dust. De-clutter – Throw away things you don't need and de-clutter drawers and closets that are jam-packed with winter gear. Dust first, vacuum later, mop last – This is the easiest way to avoid cleaning what you just cleaned. Note repairs – While you are cleaning, you may see small areas that need repairs around the house. Jot down what needs to be done and set up a time next weekend to do it. Reward yourself – At the end of the day, treat yourself for a job well done. For more visit stayathomemum.com.au.

SPRING HOME STYLING TIPS Popular television identity Shelley Craft stopped by the Sunshine Coast last weekend for the launch of the new Caloundra Carpet Court store. As a co-host of Channel Nine’s hit show The Block, she knows a thing or two about styling. Here are her top tips. 1. Declutter & clean Spring is the perfect excuse to declutter. I like to make two piles – one with things to donate to a local charity and one for the tip. 2. Flowers I love any excuse to bring the outside in, but spring is especially great for fresh flowers. I use them for a splash of colour, without the commitment of a paint job.

3. Cushions & rugs Cushions and rugs are such a great way to inject some gorgeous spring colour and texture into your home. I like to use them to test out different colours before I go all out on a feature wall, or expensive furniture. Incorporating a vibrant rug into the space can help create a base on which to layer the colours of the season. 4. Reuse and recycle I love trawling op shops for vintage one-off pieces that can be upcycled. Sometimes it takes a bit of imagination, but it’s amazing what a simple sand and once over with wood varnish can do for an old piece. 5. Greenery is always a good idea Greenery is a must for any interior, especially in spring, as it brings life into a space. Don’t overestimate your green thumb. Just because a plant is on trend, doesn’t mean it will work for your room. Make sure you consult local gardening experts to work out the best fit for your lighting and temperature conditions.

COVER STORY

Spring clean your body HEALTH Get your body in tip-top shape. Sunshine Coast naturopath Jodi Chapman of Advanced Wellness shares some tips to boost your energy, health and happiness.

4.

5. 1. Love your food – Increase your fresh raw vegetables with spring and summer salads. Chop your favourite veggies, adding a small piece of chopped fruit throughout for a sweet touch, balanced with roasted nuts and seeds such as almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, macadamias or sesame seeds for an extra boost of vitamin E, calcium, and essential healthy fats in your salad. Drizzle with olive oil, squeezed lemon, or preservative free balsamic vinegar for taste. 2. Love your health – Increase protein and healthy fats, both from animal sources such as deep sea fish, red meat, poultry and eggs, and a variety of vegetable sources such as legumes, avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts and seeds. Your body is made of good fats, omegas 3 and 6, plus proteins, which we require to repair and replace damaged cells and muscle tissue. Carbohydrates are fuel only, so limit to only what you need for each day, reducing simple sugars. Go for complex carbs instead when fuelling – sweet potato, brown rice, or delicious porridge for

6.

8.

breakfast mixed with your favourite berries, chia seeds, flaxseeds and coconut. 3. Love your life – Breathe some fresh air and get yourself outside to enjoy this beautiful weather at least once every day. Find a mountain to climb, a beach to swim, rainforest to hike, go for a bike ride, walk or jog and enjoy the sunrise, sunsets and the stunning rising moon. Love yourself – Take time for quiet thought, listen to music, meditate, read, allow your mind to access your creativity. Love others – Meet with loved ones, allow time for socialising and relaxation. Combat unexpected sadness that can slowly develop when isolation creeps in. Love your liver – Juice organic vegetables for an extra boost in nutrients and be sure to choose new and colourful veg for lots of vitamins and minerals. Love your individuality – Finding the right foods for you can make an big difference to how you detoxify, fluid retention, weight issues, energy, brain clarity and mood. Anything that causes fluid retention reduces every organ’s function, slowly leading to feeling flat, fatigued and unwell. Love your guts – Be conscious of bacterial balance and boost your immune system through healthy probiotics, and homemade antimicrobial food recipes that can reduce the unhealthy bacteria, improving your mood, reducing pain, increasing brain clarity, improving sleep, and reducing signs of digestive bloating, pain, constipation or irritable bowel.

BEAUTY 1. Spring clean your makeup kit. Check the expiration dates on products and replace the old with new. 2. Brighten up your palette with pretty pastels. We love blush, peach, baby blue and silver. 3. Clean that skin! Exfoliating will remove dead skill cells that can accumulate through winter. 4. Let your skin breathe (this goes for both guys and girls). Find a moisturiser that is lighter on the skin for those warmer days. With winter disappearing and skin becoming less

dry and brittle, you can put away that heavy-duty cream. 5. Brighten your complexion with Vitamin C. This miracle vitamin fights radical damage, brightens and evens out skin tone. Try eating citrus, berries and kiwi, or find a great vitamin C skin serum.

Get plenty of sleep. Go to bed early at least five nights per week and aim for eight to nine hours. Jodi Chapman

FOOD

Head chef Benjamin Limpus from The Grill at The Sebel Pelican Waters Golf Resort and Spa says these are the top five foods we will see coming out of kitchens this spring. Green peas – Coming into season and beautiful when fresh. Green pea and wasabi hummus is great with an Asian-style beer such as Kirin or Saporo. Baby beets – Think pickled beet and quinoa salad with fig balsamic and goat’s cheese. Just remember to wear gloves when peeling as they stain the fingers. Citrus – Lemons, limes and oranges are coming into their best time of year, and least expensive months. Use for cocktails, marinating lamb, seafood and pork. Zest up olives with lemon and orange peel, rosemary and confit garlic for a snack with a chilled and crisp rosÊ. Banana – Great in buttermilk pancakes with caramelised grapefruit, which is also best in spring. Top it with pistachio praline.

Lamb – Lamb is at its best in spring because the traditional breeding cycle means the best eating lambs are born in winter. Chermoulabasted lamb cutlets with cumin-scented pumpkin puree and fresh spring asparagus are sure to be a hit at your next dinner party. Lamb is also great with fennel and spiced rhubarb jam.

MUM IN FIGHT OF HER LIFE Sunshine Coast mum Heather Boyle is hoping her own struggles with kidney disease will help others. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

hat started as a “little niggle” that Heather Boyle decided to put off having looked at by a doctor has led to the Marcoola resident undergoing 15 surgeries in the past 12 months and the diagnosis that she will lose both of her kidneys in the next 18 months. Far from languishing in her home and worrying about her future of spending six hours every second day on dialysis, Ms Boyle has chosen to adopt a positive outlook on life and is even channelling what little energy she has left into hosting the Sunshine Coast’s first Big Red Kidney Walk on September 9. “I can either sit down and cry in a little hole, or think, ‘Let’s kick this and go forward’,” she says. “I have had such great help from the doctors and nurses who have taken care of me throughout this journey and I believe in karma, so I want to pay it forward to the community to spread some awareness of kidney diseases so other people don’t end up in the same situation.” The 49-year-old single mother says her diagnosis of staghorn calculi, which are

Heather Boyle and daughter Tahni Nawin branched stones that fill the renal system, came on Australia Day 2016 and says her early warning signs were simply feeling lethargic and “a little bit off” and it was her daughter Tahni Nawin who encouraged her to get a blood test done. “I used to do boxing for fun and after a few minutes, your arms feel that heavy that you can hardly lift them, but one day I was

just brushing my daughter’s hair and I was getting that same feeling even though I hadn’t exercised and I knew then something was going wrong,” she says. “But I was busy, so I kept putting it [getting checked] off. I want people to know that if they have a little niggle or something, just get yourself checked out. “If I had caught it earlier, there would have been treatment options and they could have blasted away the stones that were growing in my kidneys and they would not have been damaged. “I would have been able to keep my kidneys. But I have now had 15 surgeries and my combined kidney function is just 13 per cent.” Ms Boyle says once her combined kidney function reaches eight per cent, she will be trained in how to self-dialyse, so she can undergo dialysis at home until she can find a match for a double kidney transplant. “It’s something I will have to deal with for the rest of my life,” she says. “I love my freedom and losing my freedom is just going to be devastating, that part is just going to suck. I do get a little overwhelmed at times, but I know I will

get through it and my daughter has been such a great support for me. She is very wise for her 10 years.” Ms Boyle says the Big Red Kidney Walk will be a unifying community event as well as a great way for her to begin her healing process by connecting with other Sunshine Coast families that have been affected by various kidney diseases. The four-kilometre walk starts at Mudjimba Park at 9am and when the leisurely stroll is complete, people can get involved in an energetic Zumba class, tuck into a sausage sizzle, buy a treat from the bake sale stall, get their face painted or enjoy live entertainment from Dylan Maitland and the GMU Aboriginal Dance Troupe. Every dollar raised will go towards Kidney Health Australia’s services for the more than 1.7 million Australians affected by kidney disease, including Kidney Kids Camps, the Big Red Kidney Bus mobile dialysis service, the Kidney Transplant houses and the Kidney Helpline.

THE WAIFS ARE BACK Perennial tourers and music festival favourites The Waifs are returning to the Sunshine Coast, appearing at the Caloundra Music Festival for the first time. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

A

lthough they have already visited the Sunshine Coast as part of their Ironbark 25th Anniversary tour, The Waifs are set to return sooner than expected, when they play the Caloundra Music Festival. The Waifs, featuring Josh Cunningham and sisters Vikki Thorn and Donna Simpson, decided they didn’t want the fun on their extensive regional tour to end. They’ve looped back to cover some smaller regional areas and will slip in between Blue King Brown and John Butler Trio to perform on the Soul Stage at the Caloundra Music Festival later this month. Mr Cunningham says it will be their debut CMF appearance on September 29 and he is looking forward to experiencing the unique vibe and the outdoor setting at the Kings Beach amphitheatre. “We have made so many special memories in those kinds of settings over the years, so it will be nice to experience that part of the world,” he says. The Waifs’ magnetic set will include Higher Ground, the second single from their eighth studio album Ironbark, which earned them their first ARIA number one, the icing

Donna Simpson, Josh Cunningham and Vikki Thorn on the cake for their 25th anniversary celebrations on top of two sold out tours in 2017. “It’s been a very eventful year for me, with lots of big heavy things on the personal front, but we are moving in the right direction and the tour is a bright spark for all of us,” he says. “When you live in a beautiful part of the

world with a nice climate, it rubs off on the psyche of the people there and the Sunshine Coast is a happy, positive place.” Mr Cunningham says while their early touring days consisted of the trio piling into the HiAce and driving to various towns around the country, they now all have families and their touring has to be more concise and efficient.

“It’s hard for me to be away from family too often or for too long,” he says. “But I am looking forward to catching some music and reuniting with friends at the festival. “Both acts either side of us are good friends of ours and we don’t see much of each other unless we are at a festival and we can spend some time together after our sets. “There may also be some Waifs kiddies in the crowd, we’re not too sure yet.” There will also be plenty of other ‘kiddies’ and their families enjoying another stellar line-up for the 12th annual festival, which is on from September 28 to October 1. The beautiful Kings Beach and surrounds will be home to the sounds of a diverse line-up of entertainment featuring the best of Australian music as well as renowned international artists. The headliners include Birds of Tokyo, Daryl Braithwaite, The Living End, Seth Sentry, The Temper Trap, The Screaming Jets and many more.

PROFILE

MISTRESS OF CLAY DARES YOU TO CREATE Acclaimed Maleny ceramic artist Shannon Garson is inviting people into her home and into her world as an artist, in an effort to encourage them to tap into their creativity – something she says is lacking in many people’s lives. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

A

ward-winning ceramic artist Shannon Garson is on a mission to help people tap into their creativity, saying it’s a way to bring happiness and relaxation to an increasingly busy and stressed society. The Maleny artist is a finalist in the Queensland Regional Arts Award for her work The Epic Flight of the Arctic Tern, the latest in a string of awards and accolades that stretch back through her 25-year career. Sensing a lack of creative outlets in the lives of many people she meets through her exhibitions here and overseas, this year she began running retreats for people who want to meet artists in their homes, watch them work in their studios and do a workshop with them either for pure enjoyment, or perhaps to uncover a latent talent. “I can see this hunger in people to want to know what artists do,” she says. “People ask me a lot of questions whenever I do exhibitions and I can see they really want to connect with their creativity, but they just don’t know what to do.” Ms Garson feels fortunate to work as a full-time artist – supplementing her ceramics sales with speaking engagements and writing for industry publications – but acknowledges this lifestyle isn’t feasible for everyone. “Even if you have to go back to your job in an office or whatever you might do, being creative helps you in a real way in your job and all areas of your life. It hooks you into a way of thinking and you can flip your mind across. Being creative actually assists you with tasks you wouldn’t expect.” Ms Garson began her career as a painter in 1985 after completing a Bachelor of Visual Art and quickly found her vocation in ceramic art. Paintings hanging on gallery walls didn’t excite her the way something tactile could. She felt a burning desire to make fine white porcelain pots as a base for her visual art, which is inspired by nature – leaves, shrubs, trees, flowers, birds and bird nests. Her goal has always been to make art people would use in their everyday lives. In 2005 she was granted a $20,000 Churchill Fellowship to travel to France and Italy to study the ceramic collections there and undertook a four-week residency at Dartington Pottery in Devon, in the UK. “When you get a Churchill Fellowship, you have to have

In October, she’ll invite the community into her charming home when she runs her second retreat for the year. “We’re running a retreat for two days at the Old Witta School with my friend Nanna Bayer, a Finnish artist who lives in Tasmania. We’re both taking workshops, and in the middle of the two days, we’re having a big feast at my house, so everyone gets to come to my house, be in my space and have a look at my studio. We’ll have beautiful food, music, storytelling and a bonfire. “I didn’t design this retreat specifically for potters. I how there are thousands of people out there who feel like they’re creative but they’re not connecting with it at the moment. I get that. When you’re busy, it’s hard to flip your brain into creative mode. This is a kickstarter. “One thing I think that is essential to being creative is being able to recognise when there’s a little tiny thread of something you’re interested in, follow that through to its conclusion.”

5 QUICK QUESTIONS 1. What do you love about spring? I love the citrus blossoms – I have an orange tree under my window. 2. What inspires your work in spring? The wallum and the native flowers are all blooming this time of year, lots of tiny little bush flowers. There’s also heaps of native bees around too, which I use in my work. 3. Favourite food to eat in spring? Haloumi and watermelon salad. I look forward to the tomatoes ripening so I can have tomato and mozzarella with basil. reached the top of your field in Australia and be prepared to come back to Australia and share your experience,” she says. “It really strengthened the aspect of me where I wanted to share my knowledge with the community.” Working from a bright studio beneath her Maleny home, she draws her designs freehand onto Australia-made ‘southern ice’ porcelain clay, transforming them into exquisite, yet functional pieces. Her family – husband Trevor Hart, a jazz musician and artisan cheesemaker – and daughters Daphne and Pearl, eat off Ms Garson’s handmade porcelain every day.

4. What music do you listen to while you work? Lately I’ve been listening to Beth Orton’s Sugaring Season. 5. What’s something about you people would be surprised to know? If I wasn’t an artist and I could sing, my ideal job would be a backup singer in an all-girl band.

The retreat runs from October 27 to 28 in Maleny and Witta. For more information visit shannongarsonporcelain.com.au.

A GRANDFATHER’S GIFT Musician and proud grandfather Barry Bull is heading back to the stage, raising funds and awareness for local organisation Hear and Say. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“W

hat a beautiful noise comin’ up from the park, it’s the song of the kids and it plays until dark.” The lyrics of Neil Diamond’s 1976 hit Beautiful Noise will take on a whole new meaning when musician Barry Bull sings them at his annual Gift of Sound fundraising concert for Hear and Say. The September 9 concert will be the third major fundraiser Mr Bull has held since his youngest grandson Archie Cavanagh received bilateral cochlear implants at 11 months old. Mr Bull says when Archie was born profoundly deaf, he was devastated that his grandson would never know the joy of music and the melodies that have been a passion and career for Mr Bull, who is the former owner of Brisbane’s iconic Toombul Music. But Mr Bull says the support Archie and his family have received from Hear and Say over the years has been immense, and his grandson is hearing and communicating at the same level as others in his age group. “The beauty of sound is something which we all take for granted until one of your own is disadvantaged,” Mr Bull says. “Archie will turn four in a few months and his progress at Hear and Say has been nothing short of amazing. He is not missing a moment of everyday learning, and his social skills are simply endearing.” Mr Bull became a Hear and Say Community Champion, combining his great loves – family and music. He is now able to share his grandson’s story and raise awareness and funds to

Archie Cavanagh and (inset) Archie with grandad Barry Bull support the amazing work of the organisation through an afternoon of music and inspirational stories to ensure more children can continue to receive the gift of sound. Mr Bull has raised around $30,000 for Hear and Say in the past three years through his concerts at the Mooloolaba Surf Club, as well as smaller concerts he performs for community groups throughout the year. “It costs $10,000 a year for five years just to teach one child at Hear and Say and while they get some government

subsidies, they have to raise the majority of their funding through events like my concerts,” he says. Last year, Archie jumped on stage mid-concert to help his grandad belt out Elvis’ All Shook Up and Mr Bull says there’s no telling how his delightfully unpredictable grandson might contribute to the entertainment at this year’s concert. The Buderim Male Choir, Mason Hope and The Widgee Brothers will also perform during the afternoon and guests will hear from Hear and Say founder, and Queensland Senior Australian of the Year, Dr Dimity Dornan. Dr Dornan will share stories about Hear and Say’s opening on the Sunshine Coast and the role the community plays in the organisation. “These concerts mean so much to all of us at Hear and Say because it is the true meaning of community spirit,” she says. The Gift of Sound concert will be held on September 9 from 2pm to 5pm at the Mooloolaba Surf Club. Tickets are $25 and include morning tea, hours of live entertainment, raffles and a chance to bid on a signed and framed 2018 Brisbane Broncos jersey.

Spring skincare: take a tip from Heather Graham

The newest take on ‘bronde’ hair is toasted coconut, a gorgeous way to update your colour for spring. This stunning look was created by US colourist Kayluh Stewart and we love it. There’s lots of toasted coconut inspo on Instagram right now. To achieve the look, your stylist will need to dye your roots quite dark to add depth, then paint on an icy blonde lightener to accomplish the bold contrast that creates this look.

3 1. Coral eyeshadow: judging by red carpet trends, coral eyeshadow will be huge this spring. Try Nars Hardwired Eyeshadow in Mendoza, $32 from Mecca Maxima. 2. Metallic lipstick: try a fun metallic lipstick for spring with Too Faced Throwback Metallic Lipstick in 10 shades, $32 from Mecca Maxima. 3. Hot flush blush: goodbye subtle blush, hello cheeks flushed like you’ve been for a run through a flower field. Try Bobbi Brown’s Blush in Peony, $49 from Myer and Mecca Maxima.

TECHNOLOGY NEWS An underwater drone that can keep watch over the Great Barrier Reef’s health and kill invading species is ready to be put to the test. Researchers from Queensland University of Technology say their robot reef protector can monitor coral bleaching, water quality, pest species, pollution and sediment buildup. It’s also been trained to detect crown-ofthorns starfish with 99 per cent accuracy and can inject the coral-eating starfish with vinegar or bile salts, both deadly to the invasive predator. Professor Matthew Dunbabin said RangerBot was not only autonomous but could also stay under water three times longer than a human diver and operate in all weather conditions. “It’s an impressive piece of technology, (it’s) also deliberately low cost to allow production to be scaled up once the next level of operational testing is completed and all the necessary approvals are in place,” he said recently. He said the team hoped to eventually launch the drones up the length of the 2300-kilometre long reef.

Prof Dunbabin said the robot was fitted with real-time guidance so it could avoid obstacles by moving in any direction. Great Barrier Reef Foundation managing director Anna Marsden said the robot could become an extra pair of eyes and hands for frontline staff managing the reef. -AAP

MY OPINION

MY HONEYMOON WITH MUM

DON’T BE A JERK & OTHER TRAVEL TIPS

Sami Muirhead took her mum on her honeymoon and had a wonderful time, complete with couples massages and lovers cocktails.

I

took my mum on my honeymoon. We had gold-leaf massages, drank cocktails at sunset, and enjoyed a private villa with a butler. You see, my husband and I married eight years ago and we got busy really quickly with work and babies and never made time for that romantic trip away together. We had holidays, but with other friends or family. We never prioritised that one uberromantic time to do nothing except stare at each other and eat ice-cream. Does everyone have the fantasy of eating ice-cream on their honeymoon, or is that just me? Possibly it’s just me. Anyway, a trip to an exclusive resort in Thailand came up on one of those holiday websites where everything is half price. We changed the dates several times and finally we had to take the trip or forfeit our money. My husband just couldn’t get away from a new job, so enter the ultimate wing woman: Mum. We slayed Singapore, I must say. We drank beer at lunch and shopped for jade bangles in Chinatown, feeling merry from our Tiger ales. Surrounded by throngs of people, we ate and drank and caught tourist buses around the bustling city. Then we hit paradise: a Thai resort that was tiny and exclusive and clearly a destination for lovers only. We were greeted with champagne for two before being escorted to a day spa and told to

strip down, where we were rubbed with massage oil with real gold flakes in it. There we lay, looking at each other nude, cackling to ourselves at the situation. It was pure gold. Then we were taken to the honeymoon suite, where there was no TV and one bed to share, covered in rose petals and chocolates. We had planned to binge watch Netflix and lay by the resort pool, but our pool was in our villa with the butler there to witness every move we made. The resort was completely private and we only saw staff for the five days we were there. We hit the bar to receive our complimentary ‘lovers cocktails’ every night and had a sunset dinner for two on the rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean. We were even serenaded by our own guitarist, who played one romantic song after another. The staff thought the situation very funny and so did we. However, I was starting to crack a little towards the end and have never missed my husband so much in all my life. Some good things came out of our ‘honeymoon’. I realised we need to make more time for each other. But my husband gave my mum and I the very best present: a whole week of time with just the two of us. A different love story, but one of the greatest loves of my life and memories that I will cherish forever. To have that truly incredible time with my mum as we all get older and slower is the most precious gift of all.

Richard O’Leary has spent a lot of time travelling of late and is sharing his top 10 tips for a comfortable journey.

A

fter tens of thousands of kilometres in the air and on the road in recent months, I’m sharing my top 10 tips for any journey. 1. Only take carry-on luggage if at all possible. I’d rather go without a jumper and freeze in the colder cities, and go swimming in my jocks in the tropics, if it means I fit everything into one small suitcase that I can take on board with me. Two advantages: I can check-in online and don’t have to drop off my bags, which means I can arrive at the airport later, and when the plane lands I am out of there baby, although I always like to take a cursory looks at the pack camels at the carousel as I exit the building. 2. Bring baby wipes or hand sanitiser. Okay, this tip says more about my mild to moderate fear of germs, but you can’t tell me they are cleaning those tray tables too often and as for the toilets, I feel like a free fumigation service should be provided each time you use them. That’s not to mention the blankets and pillows. I’ve never seen them brought on or taken off – I reckon they are only changed when a plane is decommissioned. 3. Be nice to flight staff. They have a really tough job, and you can be 99 per cent sure that whatever you are going to complain about is probably not their fault: they don’t cook the food or have any role in air traffic control.

Sami Muirhead is a radio announcer, blogger and commentator. For more from Sami tune into Mix FM.

4. Don’t rely on the airline’s inflight entertainment system, it doesn’t always work. I always have a fully-charged phone, tablet, and power bank ready to go, and I carry rechargers for all of them, just in case any run out of power. That’s not to mention my books, a notepad and pen. 5. I’m a fussy eater and I fly with budget airlines, so I make no complaints about the food – I simply bring my own. My standard supplies includes blueberries, bananas, chilli chips, and a recent discovery I am claiming as my own innovation – twominute noodles, they’re bringing hot water around for cups of tea anyway. 6. At the risk of sounding like a personal trainer, stay hydrated. I bring my own water and also say yes to any extra that is offered to me during the trip. 7. Bring your own gum so you can chew on takeoff and landing to reduce the risk of blocked ears. 8. Check in early to avoid the dreaded middle seat – it’s the worst of both worlds, no view, and no easy access to the aisle. 9. Don’t be a jerk – yes I’m looking at you rapid recliners and armrest hoggers. Treat other travellers how you’d like to be treated. 10. Make good use of your time. Watch that movie, finish that book, or write that column you have been putting off because you were having too much fun on Father’s Day. Happy travels.

Oh to be a ‘pre-retiree’! A pre-retiree is anyone aged between 50 and 59 and still actively working, with no plans to stop anytime soon. Unlike some others, pre-retirees have plenty of options in life! Architecturally-designed homes

They are likely to have bought a home, raised a family and be planning to work well into their 60’s. There are plenty of options for preretirees, especially those lucky enough to be living on the Sunshine Coast, one of Australia’s preferred retirement destinations. Great options Once you’re over 50, moving to a lifestyle community means you have access to resort-style leisure facilities and reduced

home maintenance. Of course, you can keep working, if you want. And because new homes at Nature’s Edge Buderim are priced at less than the area’s median, selling the family home and buying a new one can result in a savings surplus! Life at Nature’s Edge Buderim is low on maintenance and big on leisure. Strong property prices Against a backdrop of sluggish property growth in other parts of Queensland

and Australia, Sunshine Coast has been experiencing strong price growth for the past year. For pre-retirees, that means it’s a great time to consider selling. The Buderim median house price is $657,500 and homes at Nature’s Edge Buderim start at $479,000. Call 1800 218 898 to speak with one of our lifestyle advisers. Ask for a personalised tour today!

The inaugural event will feature local artists Andrea Kirwin and band, award-winning world music act Highlife and Alisha Todd on the Venue 114 outdoor stage. People can bring along a picnic rug and umbrella and set up outside the freshly painted venue to enjoy the honey-toned and heartfelt lyrics of Ms Kirwan, the high-energy jams of Highlife and the country fusion delights of Ms Todd as the sun sets behind the lake. Dusk will also deliver roving entertainment and face painting for the children, and food trucks will be on hand to fuel your dancing machine.

know! Local coffee roaster Groundskeeper Willie has launched a coffee pop-up in the Moffat Beach industrial estate born from the owners’ passion for coffee and speciality tea. Husband and wife team Attie O’Rourke and Will Kemp started coffee roasting while living in Vancouver, Canada, raising funds for a not-for-profit and injecting some ‘Aussie’ into the Canadian coffee scene. Alongside their own roasted coffee, the custom cart will serve a rotating range of hand-blended nitro tea. The coffee cart is a launchpad for a future Moffat Beach roastery.

SOUNDS OF MUSIC

The streets of Nambour will come alive with the sound of music this weekend, with the NamJam Busking and Street Performance Competition returning for its second year. More than 30 local musicians from a range of backgrounds, abilities and music genres will take to stages and the streets of Nambour between 10am and 5pm on September 8, all performing at the free, family-friendly event for the chance to showcase their talents and boost their career to the next level. Supported by the Sunshine Coast Council’s grants program, TAFE Queensland, Nambour Alliance, and the local music industry, last year’s NamJam saw more than 50 buskers perform for around 5000 attendees, with Dan Horne, The Dennis Sisters and Euphoria Under Fire all claiming prizes.

This year, three judges will select the standouts of the day with the first prize winner set to receive $1500 and a spot performing at the Pineapple Fields on the Friday night before the popular Big Pineapple Music Festival. Students studying the Diploma of Business at TAFE Queensland’s Mooloolaba campus have played a pivotal role in running the event, helping organisers to arrange everything from advertising, social media and sponsorships through to analysing artist applications, surveying locations and designing the layout of the event sites.

“It’s not about how long it takes, it’s about how good it tastes.” This is the motto that Palmwoods Hotel chef Jacinta Dawn takes with her every time she sets foot in the kitchen. Ms Dawn’s first taste of the industry came when she competed in the Queensland Culinary Cooking Challenge with TAFE Queensland and went to the Ekka in August 2013, placing second in the state when she was in Year 10. Management at the Beerwah Hotel heard about her story and offered Ms Dawn an apprenticeship, which she completed with gusto. Now a qualified chef, Ms Dawn’s speciality at Palmwoods Hotel is the pistachio herb-crusted snapper with mango citrus summer salad. Ms Dawn says she also loves making dishes that “feel like a Sunday home-cooked hearty dinner”. “It makes my day when I overhear a customer say how fantastic a meal was,” she says.

METHOD In a mid-sized skillet, melt the butter and add the curry paste, curry powder, celery, coriander, capsicum and onion. Saute for two to three minutes, then gradually add the flour, salt and pepper and continue sauteing for a further minute. Gradually add the stock and coconut milk while stirring, until the sauce boils and thickens. Reduce the heat and add the sugar and lemon juice and leave to simmer for 15 minutes. Finally, add the prawns and heat until cooked, ensuring you don’t overcook, before serving on a bed of white steamed rice with a sprinkle of coriander.

THE SOCIAL SET

Three local businesses have become national leaders for their passion, purpose and vision to make the world a better place.

B U S I N E S S

RISKS IN GLOBAL ECONOMIC OUTLOOK, RBA SAYS

T

he entrepreneurs behind three Sunshine Coast businesses have been named among Australia’s Top 50 Small Business Leaders 2018. The report, compiled by Sydney-based business magazine Inside Small Business (ISB), included Spare Harvest, Hive Haven and Small is the New Big for their passion for influencing others and building relationships that go beyond economic purpose alone and that create social value. Hive Haven founder Ann Ross says they were “thrilled” to be recognised for their Blue Economy business model, which “aims to shift society from scarcity to abundance with what is locally available”. The Coast company was established in December 2017 and manufactures innovative native bee hives, designed to combat hive overheating and enable sustainable harvesting of food-grade native honey and cerumen. Spare Harvest founder Helen Andrew says the business exists “so that food and garden resources don’t end up in landfill”. “Our mission is to keep these valuable resources circulating for as long as possible. “It’s great to see Spare Harvest and other local businesses recognised for their leadership in providing sustainable solutions to social and environmental problems.” Small is the New Big provides affordable housing by building smaller self-contained homes, and co-founder Ian Ugarte says they challenge traditional approaches to housing to support the “silent and largest growing homeless demographic, being women over the age of 50.” A serial entrepreneur, having set up 23 small businesses in as many years, Mr

N ational

Local business owners Ann and Jeff Ross from Hive Haven Ugarte says Small is the New Big is designed to create great outcomes for the community, for residents and for investors while taking pressure off government housing. “Our motto is it needs to make sense before it makes dollars. It needs to benefit community first and then it has to make money,” he says. ISB editor Tim Ladhams says there is a noticeable growth in the number of smalland medium-sized businesses with a focus on social enterprise. “More than 10 per cent of this year’s ISB Top 50 Small Business Leaders Report [are social enterprises] and there are a number of other commercial enterprises for whom advocacy and charitable outcomes are a clear focus,” he says. “While some of these social enterprises have been founded by experienced and successful business owners with a commercial background, a growing number featured on ISB are run by young people on their first venture, passionate to make a difference from the outset.” Mr Ladhams says many not-for-profits are now transitioning to the social enterprise

model due to the ability to create a small but high-impact business capable of responding to customers’ needs quickly and in a more meaningful way. “[Social enterprises] are building relationships that are creating social value and beyond economic purpose. They are the future of small business,” he says. Ms Andrew says her business gives her a reason to persevere when she is confronted with the many challenges of running a small enterprise. For the Ross family, personal loss of their native bees during the 2013 heatwaves spurred them to not only protect their future hives, but also raise awareness of the importance of maintaining native bee populations. “Customers purchase our honey because they know we respect our bees and honour their honey through gentle harvesting and processing methods,” Mrs Ross says.

Australian businesses have been warned to prepare for a “whole range of circumstances” and be diversified, as risks appear in the global economy. Reserve Bank Governor Philip Lowe told a parliamentary hearing in Canberra late last month that while the global outlook was “positive”, several risks had increased. “The only advice I give is be diversified and be prepared for a whole range of circumstances,” Dr Lowe told the hearing when asked about what Australian businesses should do. Dr Lowe said advanced economies around the world were growing faster than trend, and jobless rates were, in some countries, at lows not seen for decades. However, some businesses were delaying investment because of uncertainty over global trade tensions. “It is possible that this becomes a more general story. If this were to occur, this could be the channel through which the trade tensions sap the current positive momentum in the global economy,” Dr Lowe said. Another uncertainty was a larger-thanexpected pick-up in inflation in the United States. “Financial markets remain relaxed about the implications of this for inflation - I am less relaxed,” he said. “It is highly unusual to have such stimulatory fiscal policy when the economy is already operating at a very high level of capacity. “One can’t rule out the possibility that the Federal Reserve will have to withdraw monetary accommodation more quickly than currently projected, with possibly disruptive consequences in financial markets.” - AAP

WINNING WAYS

Award-winning local business owner Kylie Pitt shares her strategies for success.

S

unshine Coast businesswoman Kylie Pitt says she is proud of what she has achieved, and rightly so. Not only did she secure the Corporate Business Woman of the Year gong at the 20th annual Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Awards last month, but she also celebrated a major business milestone. Coastal Landscape Supplies, the business she owns with partner Mark Cuthel, is celebrating its 44th year, and August marked the 10th year the pair took over the reigns. Here, we chat with Ms Pitt about running a successful business.

Congratulations on your 10th year in business. What’s the key to your success? Hands down, the biggest key to success is hard work. It’s not really a secret. It is also important to be honest and fair in your dealings with people, and be genuine. Also, backing yourself is critical, because when you hit obstacles in your business (and you will), you must listen to your gut and do the right thing rather than the easy thing, even if others doubt you. Life has a way of instilling fear into us as we have more responsibilities, and more to lose. So practising fearlessness is really important.

What do you enjoy about being in business on the Sunshine Coast?

I’d tell them to go hard after what they want. Make sure you are taking great care of your staff, customers and suppliers. Find ways to be different to your competitors and even look for ways you can partner with them. Sometimes, that presents an incredible win-win situation for you both. Stay on top of your marketing, let people know what you are doing and how you can help them. And back yourself.

The brand, Coastal Landscape Supplies, has been in existence for 44 years. What is the key to creating a long-lasting brand and reputation? Good products and service and staying in front of the game as much as possible, whether that be with your product offerings, or your marketing. Honesty is absolutely critical. Take the example of my industry: if we deliver a load of soil to a customer, they have no way of knowing if they are getting the exact weight they paid for, or if our trucks are washed down between loads to prevent contamination. But we guarantee these things. If something is not right with a delivery, we work overtime to get it right. This is how your loyal customers become advocates for your business and you can’t buy this type of support.

“The biggest key to success is hard work. It’s not really a secret”

I grew up in Narrabri, New South Wales and feel privileged to have spent my childhood in a country town. It seems strange to say it, but the Coast has a similar feel to me. It is clean and the people are friendly. And in my industry, I am dealing with a lot of country people. So in a sense, it feels like home to me. It is also thriving and a fantastic time to be in my industry. There are so many opportunities for all of us to do well.

What advice do you offer other businesses trying to make a go of it on the Sunshine Coast?

How do you see the business continuing in the future?

Thanks to the growth on the Coast our industry is thriving. We’re looking forward to the coming years and have a number of different variations on our business in the works. For example, we’re developing programs to recycle soil, which will have a big impact on developers and even government. It will make the treatment of waste soil on building sites efficient and dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of development. We know how important it is to build relationships with our customers. When people come in to buy from us, even if it is their first time, they have a sense they already know us. People buy from people, not brands or logos. If they have a sense that they know, like and trust you, you have done a good job.

Noel Bonnick, The Horking Group

WHY DO WE SELL OUR BUSINESSES TO OVERSEAS INVESTORS? This is a question that has been bothering us at The Horking Group for some time, as we regularly meet business owners who are either just coming back or just about to go overseas (quite often to the US) to find investors for their new idea or fledgling business. Why? Because finding investors in Australia is difficult, generally for two main reasons: 1. Australian investors are much less willing to take a risk on a new idea/business, or if they do they have unrealistic expectations about the returns they will get. And if it’s not technology focused it gets even harder. We put this down to too many stories about bad investments or really good investments with small investors making huge fortunes. The reality is that most business investments deliver average (still well above bank interest) returns, but yes there is still a risk they might fail. 2. When Australian investors do invest, because of their risk aversion, they want a significant part of the business for their investment. So our new business owners often develop an idea in Australia, but once they need to commercialise it they head overseas and sell part of the business/idea to investors who are more willing to support them and don’t want them to give away all their hard work to get the money they need. I find this a really distressing situation as the fruits of all the effort we put into educating and developing our business owners is often lost, to the benefit of other countries. The next time you are looking at an investment for your SMSF or other investment funds think about whether you can help to keep a good business in Australia and consider investing in Sunshine Coast businesses.

A SHORTEN(ED) GOVERNMENT

F

ollowing the recent fiasco in Australian politics we update our views around the potential implications should Labor win government. In short, while there may be some benefits for voters from what Labor proposes, we expect for investors, the outcomes will be less favourable than under the Coalition. Banks, financial services, residential property, hybrids, health insurance, and utilities may face negative attention, while selected domestic health-care and telecommunication services may benefit.

WE HIGHLIGHT THE KEY AREAS WHERE LABOR POLICY DIFFERS: Personal and corporate taxes – Expect the tax gap to widen between lower and higher earners on personal income tax, and between Australia and other countries on corporate tax. The latter could manifest in a lower Australian dollar. Franking credits and CGT discount – Refunds for excess franking credits will be scrapped, with some exemptions. This may affect the appeal of some assets, such as hybrid investments. Further, the capital gains tax (CGT) discount will be cut to 25 per cent from 50 per cent, including on investment properties. Negative gearing – Labor has proposed limiting negative gearing to new housing. We expect these reforms to introduce some risk to the value of property assets. Energy policy – Labor proposes more aggressive emission cuts and preferences myweeklypreview.com.au

37.indd 1

renewables. Prolonged policy uncertainty and the risk of increased regulatory intervention will weigh on sentiment towards the utilities. Healthcare – Labor wants an immediate reversal of the indexation freeze on Medicare benefits. This is positive for GP and diagnostic imaging operators. On the other hand, health insurers and private hospital operators could face pressure under Labor’s promise to cap insurance premium increases to two per cent per annum for two years. National Broadband Network – There is limited information around Labor’s plans, but there is a consensus that telecom operators would benefit if the government wrote down its investment in the network. Financials (primarily banks) reform – Labor strongly backed a Royal Commission into banking and financial services. We expect Labor would act more vigorously on its findings, perhaps calling for tougher penalties. Making any decisions around a change of government and its implications is a bold step this far out from an election. The election may well result in a change in government, but being able to deliver on policy promises requires the successful party to win with a decisive majority. An election result that delivers a hung parliament, or lack of control in both houses, is a possibility that is perhaps underestimated. This is not necessarily negative, as it allows for more rigorous debate, but it may slow progress on delivering policy. The decline in support for major parties in Australia (and in other countries) has meant that this situation is now more common.

The iconic Space Needle in Uptown Seattle

SEATTLE SWIMS COMFORTABLY UPSTREAM The home of grunge is growing up, but it still has its beating heart. WORDS: David Sigston, AAP.

S

eattle is startlingly immaculate. Wide, clean streets cascade down to the busy waterfront in Downtown. People are friendly. They smile and laugh, and honking cars are rare. The city of 3.8 million people is undergoing a face-lift, with dozens of cranes stretching into the serene skyline, but the capital of Washington state has retained its identity as a long-held bastion of progressiveness. Nestled in the shadow of the Pacific Northwest’s mountains of forests and known as The Emerald City because of its overwhelming greenery, Seattle spearheads LGBTQI rights and was one of the first

cities in America to legalise marijuana. Home to corporate giants Boeing, Starbucks, Microsoft and Amazon, and the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix and grunge, Seattle has become a big city without losing any small-town charm. The city now hosts the annual Upstream Music festival, the brainchild of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Into its second year, Upstream takes over Pioneer Square, the city’s oldest neighbourhood. Around 15 venues hosted more than 300 upcoming and established acts from June 1 to 3, with this year’s event headlined by Miguel, Jawbreaker and The Flaming Lips.

Rapper Kyle brought thousands of fans to delirium at the festival’s main stage behind the CenturyLink Field on Friday evening, while around the corner Canadian soulsinger Nuela Charles played a more intimate gig for a few dozen captivated people in a bar. Over the weekend DJs and hip-hop dancers took over Occidental Square in the golden light of dusk, while punk bands played in small cafes and bars in the early afternoon. But the city is much more than a home for a cool annual music festival. Tourists and locals flock to Seattle Center in Uptown, built for the 1962 World’s Fair. The precinct features the towering Space Needle, 15 hectares of open space and other attractions, including the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), and Chihuly Garden and Glass. The Space Needle offers incredible panoramic views of the city skyline and across Elliott Bay to the mountains and forests beyond where, on a clear day, Mt Rainier looms in the distance. MoPOP celebrates the immense talents of locals Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana, and has a range of rotating displays such as a horror film history, and a Marvel exhibition. Chihuly Garden and Glass is a winding maze of glass art created by Dale Chihuly, from nearby Tacoma. Adjacent to the Space Needle, stunning glass structures and ceilings line the rooms, while the outside glasshouse is speckled with glass flowers and suspended sculptures. Back near Pioneer Square, the warm and engaging hosts at Bill Speidel’s Underground Tours provide a walk through subterranean Seattle. Visitors can marvel at the skylights built in the 1880s to allow underground shopping – the purple glass is still visible in some areas of Pioneer Square. Back up the hill, Pike Place Market is a multi-level maze of farmers markets, and food and craft stores. The top level entrance is a sprawling, open-air fish market that spills onto a heaving street full of diverse offerings such as Russian pastries, cheese stores, delis and baked goods. Art lovers can take a five-minute stroll back into Downtown to the Seattle Art Museum, where patrons are immediately met

with Andy Warhol’s Double Elvis, a life-size portrait of Elvis in his Hollywood heyday, and the breathtaking Untitled by enigmatic American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. As the sun sets and hunger creeps in, diners can wander up to the corner of 4th Avenue and Virginia Street for the twin delights of restaurateur Tom Douglas – Dahlia Lounge and Lola. While Lola offers more of a seafood and Mediterranean cuisine, Dahlia Lounge is a classic, refined dining space with a dazzling array of drinks to pair with fresh, local ingredients. Elsewhere, the neighbourhood of Capitol Hill, a 10-minute drive from Downtown, is lined with charity stores, bars and cafes, and dappled with pride flags. Seattle is the sort of city that visitors don’t want to leave. It may not be a tourist haven like New York or Los Angeles, but just a few days in the bubbling city and it feels like it could one day be home. The writer travelled as a guest of Brand USA and Virgin Australia.

IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE Virgin Australia flies to Los Angeles from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, with WiFi offered on all three routes. Delta Airlines flies you from LA to Seattle in around three hours. STAYING THERE Loews Hotel in the heart of Downtown is a great base. It’s surrounded by a cluster of bars and restaurants. A 10-minute stroll leads to Pioneer Square in one direction, the pier in another direction, and Pike Place in another. Visit loewshotels.com/hotel-1000-seattle. PLAYING THERE Spend a day at Seattle Center to visit MoPOP, and Chihuly Gardens and Glass, and take in the incredible views from the Space Needle (seattlecenter.com). Explore underground Seattle and the waterfront, stroll through Capitol Hill and stop at bar for a quick drink or bite to eat. Marvel at the collection in the Seattle Art Museum (seattleartmuseum.org), and dine at nearby Dahlia Lounge (dahlialounge.com).

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

This week, the sun and Mercury are moving through your sign, so clear, logical communication will help improve relations with other people. Jupiter and Pluto also encourage you to reach out and help others.

A big and beautiful idea could boost your bank balance, as you commence a fresh chapter involving home, family or finances. Whatever happens, do your best to get the balance right between being spontaneous and thinking things through.

Venus is now vamping through your sign, so tone down your Scorpio intensity and have some serious fun! Then (courtesy of Wednesday’s wonderful Jupiter/Pluto connection), you’ll be given the opportunity to lead and/or impress those around you.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Wednesday’s auspicious Jupiter/ Pluto link encourages you to transform your life by broadening your horizons (physically, mentally and spiritually). It’s time to expand your circle of influence and make positive changes.

Saturn and Pluto are both still transiting through your sign, which amplifies your drive and ambition. But, these powerful planets also crank up your controlling side, which can alienate you from others.

Mars moves into your sign until November 15, so strive to be bolder as you initiate ideas and launch passion projects. Then, prosperous Jupiter and strategic Pluto help you to prioritise current commitments and plan your long-term goals.

Your involvement with a group, class or club has others looking to you for inspiration, so use your networking skills to drum up support, and don’t be afraid to ask experts for help. International connections look particularly beneficial.

PROPERTY

WITH SPRING COMES FRESH OPTIMISM Loren Wimhurst of Next Property Group shares her predictions for the property market this spring. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

D

emand for Sunshine Coast property remains as high as ever and while winter saw a drop in the number of available houses and units on the market, the traditional spring leap is upon us and Next Property Group’s Loren Wimhurst predicts with it, will come a host of new property listings. With the latest Core Logic figures showing properties across the Sunshine Coast experiencing the largest jump in values in the year to June, with sellers typically securing $39,347 more for houses than the previous year, it’s no wonder the region is continuing to enjoy consistent demand for property while other markets are facing challenges. Ms Wimhurst, who has been in real estate for 20 years, says it is the dynamic on the Sunshine Coast that is making us a stand-out in southeast Queensland. “We are finally getting the infrastructure we need and with that comes job creation and that is what’s making us different here to everywhere else,” she says. “Before the major investment in things like the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the Maroochydore CBD began, everyone wanted to move here, but you were limited to what you could do for a career. Now, it’s

possible for people to move here for the lifestyle and still get a good job.” According to Ms Wimhurst, this economic driver has meant the traditionally slower winter period in real estate was not due to lack of interest in buyers, but more because there has been a lack of available stock to sell. “There are so many options available for people wanting to live on the Sunshine Coast, from waterfront and beachfront to acreage or properties with views, but with a lack of stock availability, even those who want to move will wonder if they sell their place, where will they buy? For those who feel like a change, there haven’t been a lot of options for them over winter. “So we traditionally see more movement in spring as people start to think about

change, and in my experience that is after they have been in the same property for about five years, and as more people start to list their homes, more options are created for buyers as well as sellers who want to remain on the Sunshine Coast, but are looking to buy into a new suburb.” Ms Wimhurst says she is seeing an even balance of locals who are wanting to relocate on the Sunshine Coast and buyers from outside the region who have been lured here through their careers. Ms Wimhurst says with more locals reluctant to leave, driving up both demand for properties and the amount buyers are willing to pay for their slice of Sunshine Coast paradise, she is starting to see a change in buyer behaviour.

“If you wind the clock back 20 years, buyers were very area-specific. If they wanted Buderim they wouldn’t consider anything outside of Buderim, for example. And I have found over the last five years that has changed and people are looking more at their budget and coming to me saying they have got $1 million and they want to buy something beachside, but they will consider anything from Maroochydore and Alex down to Moffat Beach,” she says. “Waterfront land is a limited commodity, as is Buderim with views, so the area-specific buyer is now opening up their criteria.” Ms Wimhurst says while there will always be hotspots in areas offering waterfront or views, areas like Palmwoods and Woombye offer affordable properties just a short distance to the new Maroochydore CBD. Ms Wimhurst says now is a good time for people to consider selling their homes or units in order to make the most of the demand that remains consistent. “From the point of view of the buyer, always think of your long-term plans because you know that the infrastructure that is going in now will take care of growth in the area and I just don’t think you can go wrong with property,” she says.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

It takes only one sperm to create you from 1.2 billion released. There are seven billion people on the planet, yet only 25 million people living in Australia. Of that only 325,000 people live on the Sunshine Coast. Earth is one out of billions and billions of planets that are habitable. What is your point, you ask? Peeps – you have won the lotto living in this amazing region. In fact, your odds are better to win Gold Lotto than be born here. So be happy. Get up early and watch a sunrise. Enjoy this region. When you get cranky next time I drop in on you, think how lucky you are. Sunday should be the pick for some small waves.

Imagine how good that would make you and your family feel. And when you’re finished soaking up the nature vibes, there’s a lake with boardwalks, bike and pathways to wander around and grassy fields to kick a ball around on. Sunshine Cove offers you all this and more. Much more, right in the heart of Maroochydore’s CBD.
