FROM THE EDITOR

E

ntrepreneur Lisa Messenger is a straight shooter. She is not afraid to speak of her successes or her failures. She happily shares her life lessons with others who are willing to listen and this is one of the many reasons I’m thrilled to have her grace the cover of this week’s My Weekly Preview. Among her inspiring words, there is one particular quote which reverberated with me as a writer, editor, reader and mother. “While digital content is great, there’s so much of it coming at us so thick and fast. It’s indulgent and luxurious to sit down on the couch with a cup of tea and a physical magazine.” I couldn’t agree more. I love a tangible product and that joy of sitting back and flicking through the pages. Quality magazines have a place in the world. These glossy pages aren’t simply about sharing the latest lifestyle, home, food and beauty trends. They connect people with people. They celebrate a region, different communities and cultures. They celebrate design successes, artists, innovation and business. Magazines can delve into, and give a voice to, the big issues – whether they are global or a little closer to home. This week we tackle a subject that has been gaining traction of late: does NAPLAN have a place in our society? Is it beneficial to our kids? You be the judge, you can read the story on page 12. Enjoy.

FEATURE STORY

TESTING TIMES

As parents around the Sunshine Coast await their children’s NAPLAN results, My Weekly Preview asks, is the national test a valuable assessment tool, or an unnecessary cost to the government and encumbrance on our children and schools? WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“If NAPLAN is going to occur, it should be sample testing. A school would only participate every few years”

I

s NAPLAN a waste of time and money? It’s the million-dollar question – well, quite a bit more than a million, if you add up what we’ve spent on it since its inception in 2008. The Federal Government believes it’s money well spent, but the Queensland Government isn’t convinced. It is in the final stages of the Queensland Government NAPLAN Review 2018, which consulted students, parents, parents associations, school representatives, teacher’s unions and curriculum authorities. The results are highly anticipated. State Minister for Education Grace Grace made a statement in June, saying since becoming education minister she’d been constantly approached by parents and principals sharing concerns about the test, and this year she committed to conducting a state-wide evaluation of NAPLAN. University of the Sunshine Coast Associate Professor, Education Dr Michael Nagel is a strong critic of NAPLAN. An expert in the neurological development of children and the psychology of learning, he has authored 11 books on educational psychology and child development and believes NAPLAN is a flawed process that is damaging children and not delivering the results it intended. “I know first-hand of a private school in Brisbane that in November last year was already beginning to prep its Year 2 for NAPLAN in Year 3. That takes time away from the curriculum.

“There have been studies demonstrating the deleterious effects of NAPLAN, with kids complaining of stomach aches, nausea, headaches and a range of anxiety and stress-related issues,” he says. “It’s not all students, but a good proportion. “I’ve heard the argument that it’s only three days. Nowhere in life do we have to do this, other than university. Beyond that, life isn’t a conglomerate of tests.”

so completely different. It anecdotally reinforces in my mind we shouldn’t use anything like this to compare kids.” Dr Nagel says the academic literature tells us standardised testing is a flawed process that doesn’t tell us much apart from the surface-level learning. He’s not opposed to diagnostic testing, but he says NAPLAN doesn’t measure up. “By their nature, standardised tests never

“I empathise with parents who would like to know how their kids are doing. But there’s no reason to compare their son or daughter with any other son or daughter” Dr Michael Nagel, University of the Sunshine Coast

Dr Nagel says some schools are better than others at downplaying the importance of NAPLAN, but many students find it stressful, not to mention the pressure it places on teachers to put a hold on their curriculum and teach for the test. “My kids are beyond NAPLAN, but my daughter, given her personality traits, I definitely wouldn’t let her do it,” says Dr Nagel. “She would stress and become ill. My son is pretty easygoing. He would just take it in his stride. These are my own two kids that grew up in the same environment and they’re

tell us about an individual’s learning; it’s just a snapshot in time. “If you look at a group of kids in Year 3 at Peregian Springs School, no one in their right mind would hazard a guess that kids in Alice Springs would be anywhere near similar. One of the greatest predictors of success is postcode. We know kids growing up in affluent areas do well in NAPLAN. “I empathise with parents who would like to know how their kids are doing. But there’s no reason to compare their son or daughter with any other son or daughter. A Year 3

teacher knows exactly where a child should be at in terms of numeracy and literacy; they know how to assess that and have a conversation with the parent. You want to know where your child is at, where they need support. NAPLAN doesn’t tell you that.” Not everyone agrees. CEO of the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority, Chris Rider, believes NAPLAN is a valuable measure of student progress and says Queensland performed well this year. “NAPLAN tests the types of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life,” he says. “It provides valuable information to support good teachers and learning, and school improvement. “Queensland is one of the most improved states since NAPLAN was introduced in 2008, and this year’s results continued the overall upward trend.” Former federal education minister Simon Birmingham was a vocal advocate, saying it was an important source of transparent information for parents. Newly appointed Minister for Education Dan Tehan has not yet voiced his views, but has been called on to scrap this year’s results after an independent review conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Boston College. The review, Problems in the Design and Administration of the 2018 NAPLAN, found ‘incomparable’ data in this year’s online trial, with critics saying the results are useless and should be discarded. About 20 per cent of schools nationally sat an online version of NAPLAN this year, myweeklypreview.com.au

ahead of the full implementation of NAPLAN online in 2020. The NSW Teachers Federation president Maurie Mulheron called the 2018 test “worthless”, because the results of the online test and the pen-and-paper test are too different to be statistically comparable. Minister Tehan disagrees. In a statement to My Weekly Preview, he said, “The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) and international experts have confirmed that this year’s NAPLAN online results are comparable. “The Government is committed to the continual improvement of NAPLAN and My School and looks forward to discussing what further improvements need to be made at the next Education Council meeting.” Dr Stanley Rabinowitz, general manager of assessment and reporting at ACARA, which creates the NAPLAN test, tells My Weekly Preview, “Student results for NAPLAN 2018, whether completed on paper or online, accurately reflect each student’s performance. Parents, students and teachers can have confidence the results accurately show what each student knows and can do.” The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority also says it’s satisfied the two tests were comparable. However, Year 9 students who completed the test online fared better in writing than those who did the pen-and-paper test. “The difference for Year 9 writing may be due to students at this year level having greater confidence writing online than on paper, as well as students’ ability to readily review and edit their work online in a way that is not possible with a paper test,” Mr Rabinowitz says. “This reinforces the benefit of moving to NAPLAN Online, which will give teachers, students and parents more information about what students know.” Dr Nagel says it’s impossible to compare the two tests without bias. “You can’t compare results of a Year 9 child doing something on a computer and a Year 9 child doing a test marked by a human being – you’re going to have bias. “There will be a real push now to get it online if the intent is to ensure all students are doing the same exam at the same time of

Leslie Single

WHAT IS NAPLAN? The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) commenced in Australian schools in 2008. Each year, students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 are assessed using standardised tests in reading, writing, spelling, grammar, punctuation and numeracy. Parents receive reports for their children, showing how each child performed compared with the national average. Schools receive detailed student results. The main purpose of NAPLAN is to identify whether students have the literacy and numeracy skills to provide the critical foundation for other learning and for their productive participation in the community. day – are we sure the technology is going to be up for that? “It’s a monumental waste of taxpayers’ money. There are better ways to determine where kids are at.” While everyone agrees testing is a fundamental part of learning, it’s the way NAPLAN is conducted that raises concerns, particularly the publishing of school results on the My School website, which media outlets use to publish league tables that compare schools in a certain area. The president of the Queensland Association of State School Principals, Leslie Single, says this practice is not only unhelpful, it’s inaccurate. “I believe that does not serve a great practical purpose,” she says. “What it

does is it pits schools one against the other.” Ms Single believes NAPLAN can help teachers determine where a student is at and the data can be used to determine the next step forward, but it needs to be used in conjunction with other data schools already collect. Her organisation made a submission to the Senate enquiry into NAPLAN, published in March 2014, with a possible solution to some of the test’s most vexing issues. “Our organisation believes if NAPLAN is going to occur, it should be sample testing. A school would only participate once every few years. One of the constant criticisms is the fact that teachers are teaching to the test and that is narrowing the curriculum and putting increased stress on students. Doing sample testing would mean the schools would only be identified at the beginning of the year, or later in the term, so teachers wouldn’t be teaching to the test and could continue to teach the normal curriculum.” Dr Nagel says this makes more sense than the way it’s done now. “To me that would probably give a better indication of where students are at and it alleviates all those concerns about kids being stressed. You’d want to do random sampling at random times as well to get a better representation of what’s going on and the data should be anonymous, it should be de-identified.” As we await the outcome of the Queensland review and possible changes to NAPLAN after this year’s controversy, Ms Single has a word of advice for parents: “I think some of the stress for students comes from the expectations families put on them. Don’t put a whole lot of pressure on, just send them off to school with a good breakfast and say, ‘have a good day, do the best you can’.”

ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority) has advised its costs to deliver NAPLAN are budgeted at about $8.8 million per annum for 2018 and 2019. From 2020, the per annum cost to ACARA to deliver NAPLAN online is estimated to be $7.7 million. At a Senate Estimates Enquiry on May 31, Senator Deborah O’Neill asked Dr Michele Bruniges, Secretary of the Australian Department of Education and Training, what it costs to run NAPLAN each year. Dr Bruniges said the question would need to be taken on notice. Dr Nagel estimates the total cost is in the hundreds of millions per year.

WHAT PARENTS SAY: Elle: “NAPLAN is being misused, misinterpreted and misunderstood by educators, children, families and schools. I don’t disagree with having data but I disagree with the way it’s being perceived. People start comparing schools and teacher performance. What the child learns on any particular day has to do with many factors. What if they haven’t eaten breakfast or had an argument at home. What if they’re sick? These things aren’t considered in the results. I disagree with the way it’s been rolled out in Australia and used to the detriment of children and teachers.” Alison: “I see NAPLAN as a way for schools to get a general guide as to the areas their students need additional support in. It’s just a one-day snapshot in time. I see it as a good indicator of how a school is going generally, rather than an individual indication of ability.” Karen: “My decision was made when my eldest, who is deaf but mainstream, was asked ‘not to participate’ probably in fear of bringing the school grades down.” Carolyn: “I have a child with autism who sat last year in Year 3 – he enjoyed the process, his school handled everything fantastically and I was super interested to see where he sat with his peers. I honestly don’t get what all the fuss is about.”

WOMEN INSPIRING WOMEN IN NEW BOOK Women in Kind, a new book by Dr Kirstin Ferguson and Catherine Fox, examines how women supporting women can transform the world. And the pair is set to inspire the women of the Sunshine Coast, with the upcoming book launch on Monday October 29. The collective power of women is stronger Catherine Fox and Dr Kirstin Ferguson today than it has ever been, and in Women Kind, the authors shows that while women have always worked together to make their way in a less than equal world, society is only now beginning to see the power of amplifying this collective clout. Dr Ferguson is an independent company director who began her career as a military officer and went on to become the CEO of a highly successful global business. She has a PhD in leadership and governance for which she has received and has won multiple academic and industry awards. Ms Fox is a Walkley awardwinning journalist, a leading commentator on women and the workforce and is a member of the Australian Defence Force Gender Equality Advisory Board. The book launch is hosted by SHINE Business Women Sunshine Coast. Find out more at shinebusinesswomen.com.

He says, “The masterclass is perfect for businesses in sectors including food and agribusiness, health and wellbeing, sustainability and environment, creative industries, professional services, tourism, or education and training.” Business owners have until September 28 to apply at causewayinnovation.com.

TERRIFIC TRIO JOINS THE LIGHTNING Sunshine Coast Lightning has unveiled three new players who will be joining its 2019 squad. Defenders Jacqui Russell (pictured) and Annika Lee-Jones and international superstar shooter Peace Proscovia, who hails from Uganda but has played in the Vitality Netball Superleague in England for the past four seasons, are all joining the team. Lightning acting head coach Kylee Byrne is thrilled to have the players on board for the club’s third season. “To welcome Jacqui back into the Lightning team was an easy decision. [She] first joined as a replacement player just before the 2018 season started and she worked extremely hard, which saw her rewarded with some court time this year,” she says. Head coach Noeline Taurua says the signing of Ms Proscovia is a massive coup for the club, as several clubs fought hard to secure her signature. “Peace is such a lovely person – humble and authentic,” Ms Taurua says. “She will not only suit our team and club culture but I’m sure will be a hit within our community.” Ms Proscovia attracted attention on the world stage following her stand-out performance at the 2018 Commonwealth Games where she shot with 91 per cent accuracy.

SUPPORT FOR STARTUPS If you’re considering launching a startup, the Startup Onramp program might be just what you need. It has been successfully rolled out through Brisbane’s innovation hub The Precinct. The 12-week training and mentoring program gives new and aspiring founders the skills, advice and networks they need to launch and grow their company. Startup Onramp founder Colin Kinner (pictured) held a training camp in Brisbane last month for the facilitation team comprising 10 regional precincts, who will be rolling out the program across the state this month. Jacqui Price has been appointed the lead facilitator for the Sunshine Coast’s first Startup Onramp program. Visit digitalsunshinecoast.com.au/ startuponramp for more information.

The Buderim Foundation has awarded more than $75,000 in grants to 23 community-based organisations as part of its Community Grants Celebration. The foundation’s grants committee chair Lisa Edward says this year’s Community Grants Celebration marks not only the largest total amount of annual funding ever awarded by the foundation, but the largest number of recipients. “Our very first round of grants were delivered in 2008 and totalled $16,000 and since then, along with today’s funds, the foundation has been able to award nearly half a million dollars in community grants to groups in the Buderim area.” Some of the recipients include the children’s reading initiative Story Dogs, the Beautiful You Program, The Compass Institute, and the Buderim branch of the Scouts Association of Australia.

USC TEAMS UP WITH BULLETS The University of the Sunshine Coast has announced a partnership with NBL club Brisbane Bullets. Bullets players and coaches will now have access to USC’s sporting facilities and staff. “The partnership will provide a range of real-world placement opportunities for USC students and staff,” says USC’s Director of High Performance Sport Professor Brendan Burkett. “USC will also offer career advice, counselling and guidance to Bullets players and staff, while those who wish to pursue degrees will be eligible for USC’s High Performing Student Athlete program.”

HIGH TEA BY THE SEA AMPS IT UP THIS YEAR Can you see yourself cruising around in this $40,000 rose gold Mini? Well, buy a ticket and start visualising. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he organisers of the second annual High Tea by the Sea must have been inspired by international icon and serial giveaway queen, Oprah. Even though tickets to their October 14 event at the Maroochy RSL sold out in the blink of an eye, Coastline Mini Garage and 4 Ingredients are pulling out all stops to ensure their massive raffle, which anyone on the Coast can enter, is jam-packed full of some jaw-dropping prizes. The major prize is a rose gold-wrapped 2018 Mini Cooper three-door hatch released in July and Coastline marketing manager Sophie Kurz says this model is a step up from the Mini won by a Caloundra mother last year. “It’s faster, safer and more connected and has insane infotainment inside the cockpit with all of the tech bells and whistles you could imagine,” she says. “This is the model that will remain unchanged on the market for the next four years. In terms of colour, we really wanted to one-up it this year and because everyone loves a bit of rose on the Sunshine Coast, we decided to go with rose gold because it’s in vogue and is a trend that has stuck around as well as being a nod to our major beneficiary, the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

“It has a rose gold wrap, so the winner can choose whether to keep that on, or take it off and drive around with the brand-new Mini hue – solaris orange – which is underneath. Either way, they will be driving around in the newest of the new Minis, which is worth around $40,000.” But that’s not all. Entrants will also have a chance to win the second major prize. 4 Ingredients’ Kim McCosker says the package is valued at more than $6000 and includes a complete Studio Republic Photographic Experience that includes the shoot and all of the images, a one-bedroom apartment for two

nights at the Mantra Mooloolaba Beach Resort, a Mini Cooper to drive for the weekend from Coastline Mini Garage and dinner for two at Cellar Door in Mooloolaba. “The lovely team at 4 Ingredients will also make a delicious gluten-free orange and almond cake to ward off those midnight munchies and leave a signed copy of the latest bestseller with the recipe in it,” she says. Around half of the 5000 tickets have already been sold and Ms Kurz says because the tickets are not available to purchase online, the odds of a Sunshine Coast winner are tremendous.

“Last year, we sold the final 1500 tickets on the day of the event in the room, so this is why it’s important for the general public to make sure they snap one up in advance,” she says. “Not only have we added a second major prize, but every single person who buys a raffle ticket this year will get a $500 Studio Republic voucher as a thank you for their much-needed donation to the NBCF.” Tickets are $20 each, three for $50 or 10 for $100 and can be purchased at Coastline Mini Garage and Coastline BMW offices. Popup locations around the Coast will also give people extra opportunities to purchase tickets, or you can call 5491 9100. Ms McCosker says their aim is to blow last year’s NBCF donation of $55,000 out of the water this year.

COUNTDOWN TO CALOUNDRA MUSIC FESTIVAL Eskimo Joe are back in full force and are pumped to be playing Caloundra Music Festival. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

E

skimo Joe frontman Kav Temperley knows a thing or two about what it takes to put on a great show and when he is in full force with Stuart MacLeod and Joel Quartermain, there is no telling what sort of magic could happen. Sunshine Coasters will have the opportunity to see the trio in action at the Caloundra Music Festival (CMF), to be held at Kings Beach from September 28 to October 1. Sandwiched between Aussie bands Sheppard and The Living End on the September 30 artist line-up, Mr Temperley says it will be a night to remember. “Some of the best shows are when you have these serendipitous moments, like a few years ago when we were touring Black Fingernails, Red Wine and did a show in Adelaide, they had been in a massive drought and as we were approaching our final song this massive thundercloud came rolling in from the distance,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “We literally played our last chords and the rain came pouring down. It was such an amazing moment and everyone collectively went, ‘Woe, that was spooky and also pretty cool’.” While Eskimo Joe had taken a bit of a sabbatical, they are now back in full force and Mr Temperley promises fans will be able to rock out to a host of their best hits, including the crowd favourite From the Sea. Tickets are still available for the four-day extravaganza of sun, surf and soul, with the 12th annual festival offering a diverse line-up of live music featuring the best local, national and international artists.

stacks of activities for the kids including ukulele, drumming and flower crown workshops, inflatables, face painting, kids yoga, fossicking and craft activities. Reef Check Australia will also host an art installation in the Funky Forest featuring 50 years of Sunshine Coast Ocean Heroes designed by artists from Awkward Chat. For those a little older, the photo booth is a great way to get some happy snaps to remember the weekend and any hungry festivalgoers will be delighted by the culinary experiences on offer through six food courts and a large undercover seating area at the Soul Stage. Don’t forget to bring your own water bottle to fill up at one of the refill stations, as no bottled water will be sold at the event in order to reduce plastic waste generated at the festival.

CALOUNDRA MUSIC FESTIVAL HEADLINERS

Eskimo Joe Think John Butler Trio, Birds of Tokyo, The Temper Trap, The Rubens, Blue King Brown, Daryl Braithwaite, Sneaky Sound System and Seth Sentry, to name a few. As Caloundra Music Festival is a family-friendly festival, there is also a host of extra entertainment including the Funky Forest, which is home to the Sun Stage and offers

PROFILE

A MESSENGER FOR OUR TIMES Entrepreneur, publisher, speaker and eternal optimist Lisa Messenger has learned some powerful lessons in life, and she’s coming to the region to share her wisdom with the people of the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

P

icture this: you’re a young Australian woman who grew up riding horses on a 4500-acre property in country New South Wales. You decide to launch your own glossy magazine with no experience, at a time when everyone says magazines are dying. Within 18 months, your magazine is being distributed in 37 countries and you get a call from the editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, asking you to come to New York. Nail-biting stuff, right? Not for Lisa Messenger, entrepreneur, author, publisher and founder of the hugely successful Collective Hub, a ground-breaking entrepreneurial and lifestyle magazine. “It was extraordinary that Collective had gotten onto her radar,” she says. “I flew over to New York to meet her and it was like walking onto the set of The Devil Wears Prada. It was one of those surreal moments – this little kid who knew nothing about publishing having Anna Wintour asking to meet her. “So many people would think, ‘oh my gosh, this person is so much better than me’, but I don’t think like that. If you think like that, nothing will happen. I kept thinking, she called me, be confident. She’s obviously seen something in me, so I breathed that in. The very first question she asked was, ‘what’s your profit?’. I wasn’t expecting that, so I said, ‘nothing’. She just laughed. It was a way to soften the meeting. I was brutally honest. Our profit was nothing.” Ms Messenger studied a bachelor of business in 1999 and launched The Messenger Group in 2001, a sponsorship and PR company which has grown to encompass a lifestyle website, events management company and publishing company, which has published 400 books. But it’s Collective Hub magazine, launched in 2013, that’s closest to her heart and the arm of her business that launched her onto the world stage. In April, she made the difficult decision to close the print version of the magazine after 52 editions. She launched it with $1.5 million of her own money, then sold two properties and invested another $1.3 million into it. The magazine scaled too quickly and something had to give. “With Collective Hub, I had 32 full-time staff and was paying $3 million in salaries each year,” she says. “That’s without all our freelance expenses. When I decided to close the mag in April, I did something kind of crazy. I decided to stop haemorrhaging money and I have now decentralised my entire team. I’m trying to use freelancers and consultants from mostly rural and regional areas. “The message is, bigger isn’t always better. Launching Collective Hub has been amazing, but so has breaking Collective Hub – I really want that to be a strong message. It’s okay when

And her Coast fans will be some of the first to hear her big news – after months of soul-searching, she has decided to breathe new life into her baby and relaunch the print version of Collective Hub. “I’m probably going to do just two issues a year. An issue will come out on November 29, because I just love it so much. I’m a big believer in physical, tangible and beautiful products. While digital content is great, there’s so much of it coming at us so thick and fast. It’s indulgent and luxurious to sit down on the couch with a cup of tea and a physical magazine.” Ms Messenger is one sassy woman and her confidence is part instinct, part self-taught. She’s thrown herself into self-help courses over the years and today, is fiercely optimistic, saying her aim in life purpose is to ignite human potential. “I’m a real believer that if we keep ourselves in the past, it’s really unhealthy. I outwardly observe people who take on that victim mentality or ‘poor me’. There’s so much I could be cranky or embarrassed about, or feel like a failure, but I choose to flip my mindset and go, that was that. It was a learning experience. It’s about adopting an attitude of gratitude and flipping everything quite quickly. “I feel like it’s just the beginning. My purpose remains the same. To be an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs, to live my life out loud and that will stay till the day I die.”

3 QUICK QUESTIONS things aren’t working out to break stuff. So many of us have our identities wrapped up in how things should be. Be courageous enough to break something and say, this isn’t working. Stripping it back to basics was one of the most liberating things I could do. “I’d never run a global business like that before and I was in survival mode. My CFO every day said, ‘we need another $100,000’ and I’d scramble around, make more money, do more deals, find more revenue streams. It was like a treadmill of hideousness.” She shares the lessons she learned from the experience in her new book, Risk & Resilience, published last week. A prolific writer, she’s written 24 books about self-help, business and entrepreneurship, and is in the midst of a regional tour to promote the book and share her insights. An altruistic person who radiates a refreshing openness, she won’t be holding back on all the juicy stuff about her triumphs and challenges when she visits the Coast in October.

1. Favourite music? I listen to such a variety from really mellow yoga music to full-on dance/trance deep house music, which I listen to while I meditate before I go on stage. It grounds me and sort of gives me strength. I’m always playing music and always having a spontaneous dance-off at any opportunity, wherever I am. 2. Favourite book? Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning. It’s a beautiful and profound read. 4. Who inspires you? Richard Branson, The Beatles, Osho. They are all such rebels. Closer to home, community members.

ACCESSING SUPER

W

e have outlined the rules around getting money in to super on a number of occasions. But how do you access these funds once in super? Super has been designed for the sole purpose of providing you with benefits in retirement. To encourage you to save for your retirement, the government has offered significant tax incentives to contribute and invest in super. Given these significant benefits, the government has put strict rules in place around your ability to access these accrued benefits. There are significant penalties that apply to those who access their super before they are meant to. This is of particular significance for those of you who run your own self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF). As trustee of your own SMSF you

need to be diligent in ensuring that you follow all the rules around accessing super. The individual member who accesses their super early may be forced to pay significant penalties and interest on the super that has been accessed. Moreover, if you are the trustee of your own SMSF, knowingly allowing this member to access their super early can result in penalties and even jail time. Given the above, I am sure you can understand the importance of following the rules around accessing super. So, what are the rules? Firstly you need to understand that contributions made to super are generally preserved upon receipt in the super fund (in other words, you can’t access them). In order to access these preserved contributions you need to satisfy a ‘condition of release’. The most frequently used ‘conditions’ in which you can access super is where you retire after reaching your preservation age or where you reach age 65. Reaching your preservation age depends on when you were born. When you are under the age of 65 and are retired there is specific wording within the rules that needs to be observed in determining whether or not you satisfy

the retirement-related condition of release. There are other lesser-known ways in which you can satisfy a condition of release that aren’t related to retirement. Broadly speaking, alternative ways in which you can meet ‘condition of release’ include death, terminal illness, permanent and temporary incapacity, severe financial hardship, and compassionate grounds. Individuals who satisfy the definition of permanent incapacity and are unable to return to work because of ill-health (physical or mental) might be able to access their superannuation early. There are potentially some great strategies available for these individuals who are in this unfortunate position. If you meet this condition of release and receive an insurance payout within super because of your ill-health I strongly recommend you seek advice around the tax implications and how best to structure your affairs moving forward before cashing these benefits out.

MAKING BUSINESS BETTER Leader of the Queensland Opposition Deb Frecklington addressed more than 120 business leaders last week at an event staged by the Sunshine Coast Business Council. At the breakfast – hosted in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance – Ms Frecklington shared her vision for Queensland. Sunshine Coast Business Council chair Sandy Zubrinich says Ms Frecklington spoke about small and medium businesses, which are the backbone of the Sunshine Coast economy. “Events such as these… ensure our members and other members of the business community have the opportunity to ask our leading politicians specific questions.” Ms Zubrinich says this event, along with a series of think tanks, are examples of how the council can influence and advocate on behalf of the business community. “Our advocacy role is extremely important and we don’t shy away from the difficult questions.”

SEASIDE SPIRIT Beautiful Tathra has bounced back. WORDS: Candice Marshall, AAP.

I

t was a late Sunday afternoon in the tiny beachside town of Tathra when a fast-moving bushfire closed in. Residents fled the flames to evacuation centres in nearby towns on the New South Wales south coast. The town was devastated. Fast forward four months, and a Sunday session is in full swing at the local pub. I’d just arrived in town and headed straight to Tathra Hotel to check in. It was a jolly welcome – the bar was packed full of people, spilling out onto the sun-drenched deck, all here to see a popular local band. The Tathra Hotel was not affected by the fires, nor was the school, any major infrastructure or the historic wharf, a drawcard for locals and tourists alike. Most importantly, not one life was lost. Almost everyone I spoke to in my time exploring Tathra was quick to point this out. “It could have been worse” is a phrase I heard repeatedly. I can only assume this positive attitude played a key role in how quickly the community bounced back after the fire. Even the 25 kilometres of mountain bike tracks affected by the fire had been restored, thanks to bike-riding communities rallying together for a series of working bees.

The best way to explore the network of trails is to grab a rental bike from Tathra Beach & Bike on the foreshore and hit the tracks. If you like your feet firmly on the ground there are many bushwalks and National Park hikes to choose from – some that hug the coastline, some winding around lagoons and lakes, others carved into rocks and peaks, all taking in amazing natural beauty, with a high chance of wildlife encounters. And if you don’t see any wildlife in the actual wild, just a short drive from Tathra is Potoroo Palace, a not-forprofit native animal sanctuary. One of the coolest things to do in Tathra is to watch stingrays feed down at Kianinny Bay boat ramp when the fishermen come in at the end of the day. Watch these clever, friendly stingrays congregate for fish scraps, or jump in the crystal clear water with a snorkel and get amongst the gathering. Back at Tathra Hotel a different species gathers – the town’s resilient and buoyant locals – to enjoy some downtime after getting the town back on its feet. Thanks to their hard work and community strength, Tathra is well and truly open for business. * The writer travelled as a guest of Destination NSW.

TICK CHINA OFF YOUR BUCKET LIST China is an ancient culture reinvented. While some aspects of life remain as they have for thousands of years, many aspects are being embellished by the new, with state-ofthe-art modernity in every town and city, but particularly in Shanghai and Beijing. Here, the old blends with the new – the Great Wall waits to be explored, in Xian you can see the priceless Terracotta Warriors, and in Chengdu province, visit the pandas. Every province brings a new set of flavours to its cuisine and a new range of beliefs, philosophies and languages to its people – all of it ripe for exploration. For the first time, visitors to China travelling with Wendy Wu Tours will get a specialist tour operator and the opportunity to see the well-known sights as well as some

MY OPINION

ON YOUR MARX

CREATIVE CREATURES

Sami Muirhead is so excited about Richard Marx doing an Australian tour, she’s reliving the teen heartbreak his songs accompanied.

Richard O’Leary says when you get creative, making mistakes is all part of the process – the important part is just doing it.

“O

cean’s apart day after day. And I slowly go insane. I hear your voice on the line, but it doesn’t stop the pain.” Remember those lines performed with such angst and passion (and a pretty impressive mullet) from Richard Marx? Well, pretty soon it will be 30 years since the world number one song Right Here Waiting was the soundtrack to many of our fractured and fragile teenage hearts as we dipped our big toes into the brutal game of love. Yes. I know. How can it be three decades? “If I see you next to never, how can we say forever? Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will be right here waiting for you.” Oh Richard! You read my mind and touched my soul. I loved that song so much in 1989 when it was released. Richard Marx and his power love ballads got me through many a hormonal teenage night locked in my bedroom when I was 15 and in love with George Georgiou. I would lie in my bed looking at my posters of Johnny Depp and Richard Greico and cry rivers of tears after the guy I had a massive crush on dumped me after one single date. Yes. George Georgiou broke my innocent heart after a rather disastrous session at Skateway in Brisbane. I swear that is his name and I thought in grade 10 I would probably marry my Greek god and his mum would bake me eggplant moussaka and those Greek biscuits covered

in white flour for the rest of our lives. It was not to be my destiny. I had a natural awkwardness in my teens that was probably due to my braces and the fact I was super skinny and lanky with long black frizzy hair. But when George dumped me for Rebecca Shay (who had a straight bob and perfectly straight teeth and was average height), it was Richard Marx who got me through the dismal weeks as I played his songs on my ghetto blaster. I could never afford a Sony Walkman. “Or how my heart breaks, I will be right here waiting for you. I took for granted, all the time that I thought would last somehow. I hear the laughter, I taste the tears, but I cant get near you now.” Well, Richard is coming to Australia to perform in a few months and he is even teaming up with John Farnham for a few gigs. Can you imagine if they sing Endless Summer Nights together? Be still my beating middle-aged heart. It may be too much to bear. Thirty years has flown by really fast and some things have not changed. I now binge on rocky road chocolate ice-cream and red wine if I am sad and listen to Adele, but I am bang up to step back in time and hear the man himself belt out some of his anthems. “Oh, can’t you see it baby, you’ve got me going crazy. Wherever you go, whatever you do…” Richard, I will be right there waiting for you. I wonder if George Georgiou will be in the crowd?

W

hen I was a kid, I used to put so much effort into my school projects. I’d get my parents to buy a project book. The left-hand page was blank for drawings and pictures and the right-hand side was lined for writing. And I’d turn over the cardboard cover and write my summary of what I’d just discovered in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. That’s when the problems would start. Invariably, I’d mess up the heading by spelling a word wrong, smudging the gold lettering (weren’t gold pens the best?) or

“Creativity is our normal and fundamental way of being…” running out of room for all the words. Any of these would mean I had to tear out the page and start again. The project book only had 24 pages, so by the time I’d finished ripping out my false starts, it would shrink to a two-pager approaching perfection. My boys have no such troubles. If they make a mistake they just cross it out and keep going. My eight-year-old (happy birthday for Wednesday!) regularly writes rap songs and there are just as many scribbles as stanzas, but the final product is always spot

on. He has no fear of making errors, he instinctively understands that’s just part of the process. It’s taken me many more years to learn that lesson, but I now freehand when I sit to write a few more pages of the book I have committed to completing. It means if I make a mistake, I just put a line through it and keep going. The result is a page that looks unattractive, but where the writing flows freely, the opposite of what can happen when I use a keyboard. So I enjoyed a recent article in the Guardian, where writers, artists and other creative types talked about what’s the key to their creativity, and Marina Abramović, the performance artist who inspired the novel The Museum of Modern Love (read it – absolutely brilliant) offered this: “Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.” But in my humble opinion, the process of creativity was best summed up by author Ben Okri: “Creativity is our normal and fundamental way of being. It is everything else – our education, our social conditioning, our cultural mores, our upbringing – that imprisons our creativity. If you don’t believe me, watch a child at play. To them, all things are possible because they have not learned that some things are impossible. We don’t need to learn to be creative. We need to unlearn not being creative.” So stop reading this column and go create something, and remember it doesn’t matter a damn if you make a mistake.

Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

One of her favourite moisturisers is Cetaphil. She says it works on everybody and is great under makeup. It’s $17 for 500ml from Priceline and Woolworths. She also loves Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, $8 at Priceline.

LOCAL THEATRE

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE Local entrepreneur Kim Morrison is sharing her insights on self-love in her new book. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

S

unshine Coast entrepreneur, speaker and mother-of-two Kim Morrison’s latest book The Art of Self Love sets out to remind us that self-love is much more than the occasional bubble bath or massage. Ms Morrison has drawn from her personal experiences to develop a six-step process that supports people to stay in the presence of love, and she will share her insights in a fun-filled night of celebration at the Maroochy Surf Club. Ms Morrison experienced incredible highs in the three years it took to research and write the book, but she also had equally emotional lows. “Someone said to me this book is part autobiography, part inspiration and part workbook. What I tried to do was use my own life experiences as an example where other people could see themselves in that story,” she says.“We’ve all had tough times, we all go through struggles and every single person we meet has a story that you would be flabbergasted and surprised with. “My stories are just my stories, but it was very personal and very raw for me to reflect on the number of struggles and challenges I’ve been through myself and what I have learned from them.”

Ms Morrison says she hopes readers will relate to the book and it will become a touchstone for people to realise the importance of opening up conversations around mental health and self-care. “If it helps one person to pull through a tough or challenging time with more courage and grace or if it helps one person to not take their life, that would be its intent,” she says. Tickets to the book launch on September 24 include a signed copy of the book, drinks and canapes plus a night of fun. Visit shinebusiness women.com/events for tickets.

John Pielmeier’s award-winning drama Agnes of God ran for 599 performances in its first Broadway release in 1982 and has since been produced all around the world. Its enduring popularity lies not only in its riveting and suspenseful story, but in its ability to make audiences ask big questions.

MY TIME

TODD’S TALES Todd Widdicombe shares his favourite misheard song lyrics.

F

riends, I know I’ve made some bold statements over the years, like “lasagne is just spaghetti cake”, “cats are *&%holes”, “life’s not a fairytale – if you lose a shoe at midnight you’re drunk” and “&%#@ isn’t a swear word, it’s a sentence enhancer”. But today I want to share with you my boldest thought yet. Now you may think I’m being brash here, perhaps you could call me cocky, even arrogant, but here goes. “Hit me with your pet shark” is the greatest misheard song lyric of all time. Sure, the Hendrix classic “scuse me while I kiss this guy” from Purple Haze and Chisel’s “cheap wine and three gay goats” are both excellent additions, but Pat Benatar’s “hit me with your pet shark” is without peer. Now it’s a fact that we’re all guilty of mishearing the words to songs. Sometimes even when we realise we’ve got it wrong, we like our versions better, right? The good news is there’s an official word for misheard song lyrics and that’s ‘mondegreens’. So now I’ve forced upon you what I reckon the number one mondegreen of all time is, let’s check out the following nine rippers. Feel free to sing along. Number 9: The Eurythmics’ “sweet dreams are made of cheese”. Thanks Annie Lennox. You’re a ripper.

Number 8: Madonna’s “pappadum peach”. The Material Girl loves the exotic tastes of India. Number 7: Hothouse Flowers’ cover “I can see clearly now Lorraine has gone”. (In fact there are plenty of tunes about Lorraine. Prince loved “purple Lorraine”, CCR asked the question “have you ever seen Lorraine”, Milli Vanilli “blamed it on Lorraine” and Adele rather violently suggested we “set fire to Lorriane”. But I digress.) Number 6: In Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer, Jon sings “it doesn’t really matter if we’re naked or not”. You’re singing that one out loud, I know you are. Number 5: At the start of the classic Summer of ’69, Bryan tells us “I got my first real sex dream, bought it at the five and dime”. Cheap as bro. Number 4: In the ’90s TLC pleaded “don’t go Jason Waterfalls”. Who the hell is Jason Waterfalls? Was he the actor guy who played the doctor on Melrose Place? Let’s bring it on home with the top three. Number 3: The Go-Go’s classic had Belinda Carlisle singing about “Alex the seal”. (Yeah, you sang that one out loud for sure. Is it “our lips are sealed”? Nah it’s a song about Alex, who happens to be a seal. Bewdy!) Number 2: This is the stuff legends are made of, Elton John’s very public sign of affection to one of the greatest TV stars of the ’80s, “hold me close, oh Tony Danza”. And of course that brings us back to where it all started, Pat Benatar’s “hit me with ya pet shark”. THE BEST misheard lyric of all time. Did I mention it’s the best? Of course there are some honourable mentions too – Tears for Fears’ “sowing the seeds of love/sewing machine’s of love”, Ray Parker Jnr’s Ghostbusters – “who u gonna call, those bastards” and Madonna’s “like a virgin, touched for the 31st time”. You’re saying “Dayumm Todd, I’ll never sing those songs the same ever again”. You’re right aaaaannnnddd, you’re welcome.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

You’re keen to power ahead with a financial matter, a business project, or a creative idea. But, expect delays or challenges as Saturn seems to stymie every move you make. Switch your settings to cruise control and use the down time to review your approach.

Expect some relationship rumbles this week, as the full moon stimulates your partnership zone. Saturn also urges you to get the ratio right between your personal needs and those of your family, so do your best to reset the balance.

Scorpios don’t do things by halves … especially when there’s a full moon! You could find it difficult to let go of a grudge or grievance this week. If you stew over perceived slights and sweat the small stuff, you’ll just end up feeling stressed.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Monday night’s full moon shines a bright light on relationships. Socialising with loved ones will put a spring in your step and a smile on your Sagittarian dial. But, money matters look challenging as you are hit with extra bills.

This week’s celestial salad throws a full dose of frustration into the mix, as your power planet Saturn squares the sun and slows everything down (especially at work), which could send your stress levels into the outer stratosphere. Calm down, Capricorn!

With proactive Mars powering through your sign, you want things done now! But, Saturn has other ideas. If you slow down and are more astute in your appraisal of people and situations, it will save you time in the long run.

This week, the full moon shines light on a challenge that needs to be overcome. You’ve certainly got big aspirations, but reality planet Saturn urges you to make a clear distinction between an achievable goal and an airy-fairy fantasy.

GO ON A SLIME-TASTIC ADVENTURE Up the slime factor these September school holidays as part of Sea Life Sunshine Coast’s all-new Slimed interactive experience. Guests can go on a slime-tastic underwater journey as they learn weird and wonderful facts about the slimy creatures of the sea including anemones, sea cucumbers, jellyfish and moray eels. For the daring, scattered throughout the attraction are Black Box Challenges, where guests can stick their hands in a mystery black box and guess which slimy creature the texture resembles. There will be daily slime-making workshops at 12pm and 2.30pm where guests can learn how to create their own slime with tips and tricks from slime-making expert Squishii Cat.

The holidays are upon us again, which means it’s time to get out and about in our beautiful region and have some fun. If you’re stuck for ideas we’ve got loads of activities to keep all the family members entertained these holidays.

Did you know that moray eels are one of the most slippery aquatic animals alive? Or that the master of camouflage, the Octopus, uses his slimy coating to protect himself when finding hiding spots in sand and under rocks and coral? Learn these facts and more as part of Slimed. But be sure to make like a slippery serpent and ‘slime’ in before the experience slips away on Sunday, October 7. From coming face-to-face with colourful marine life including sharks and colourful fish to learning all the quirky and magical facts about the animals that call our oceans home, Sea Life Sunshine Coast promises interactive fun for the whole family.

A very special event is coming to the Queensland Air Museum on September 22 – The Australian Military Aircraft Display. The display features the Lockheed Neptune, Lockheed Ventura and the De Havilland Caribou, and there are plenty of stories to uncover about the important roles these aircraft played in Australia’s defence and coastal surveillance. Both the Neptune and Ventura were primarily designed as surveillance aircraft and were known as the ‘sub-hunters’ for their capacity to detect enemy submarines. Both aircraft have interesting stories on their way to becoming QAM displays. The Neptune was recovered from Mareeba, was disassembled by 12 QAM volunteers in February 2016, transported to Caloundra on six trucks, and re-assembled over a period of two years.

LIVE LIFE LARGE IN CALOUNDRA

The Ventura, a WW2 aircraft, was recovered in 1991 as a wrecked fuselage and had been used to store pig and chicken food on a farm. In very poor condition and missing wings, tail, engines and all internal components, the restoration was a great challenge and has been underway for almost three decades. The DHC-4 Caribou is fortunate to end up at QAM, having been involved in three near-catastrophic crashes while serving in Vietnam. Each aircraft has been lovingly restored by the QAM Restoration and Conservation teams and visitors will have the opportunity to climb inside these historically significant aircraft and hear the stories of their service. All of QAM’s other displays will also be available to enjoy. Pathfinder Drive, Caloundra, qam.com.au

THE WHALES ARE BACK! Now that whale migration in Sunshine Coast waters is at its peak, there’s no better time to go whale watching or swim with whales with Sunreef Mooloolaba. More than 33,000 humpback whales are expected to make their annual migration via the waters off the Sunshine Coast this year and you can see these majestic creatures aboard whale-watching vessel Whale One,

on a traditional whale-watching tour. The more daring, however, can take the plunge on a swimming with the whales tour, joining these majestic and curious creatures in the water for an immersive, up-close-and-personal experience. It’s almost impossible to describe the feeling as one of these giant mammals, some up to 10 metres long, swim alongside

you. But it’s a memory that will stay with you forever. With only 20 guests per vessel, this type of tour is truly intimate watching.

HALCYON LAKESIDE OPENS UP WITH A STREET PARTY

INDEPENDENT LIVING IN AGED CARE

H

alcyon Lakeside is taking it to the streets on October 13 when the over 50s lifestyle community throws open the gates to the public. Featuring a vibrant and relaxed street party theme, the Open Day welcomes the public in to discover what life is like in the over 50s lifestyle community at Bli Bli. Lakeside’s streets will be lined with food, fun and festivity as buskers provide a laidback coastal soundtrack while ice-cream and doughnut vendors serve up delicious treats. Halcyon Lakeside project director Chris Carley says the day is a chance for potential homeowners to bring along their family to get a first-hand look and feel of the lifestyle on offer in the 232-home community. “It’s a genuine insider’s tour and a chance for the whole family to explore the community together,” Mr Carley says. “They can walk the streets, check out the five-star resort facilities and inspect our stunning display homes that showcase the final stage of homes now selling at Lakeside. “Another important aspect is they get to talk to the real experts – our home owners who love showing off their community, sharing their experiences and providing genuine insights into life here.” One of the first faces the public will encounter is home owner Ruth Craven, who meets and greets on open days. Ruth and husband Phil were among the first people to move to Lakeside and made their decision after attending a Halcyon open day.

“We moved in very early on, so for us there’s a sense of ownership of this place,” she says. “It’s the best move we ever made and I want to share that optimism with people. It makes a huge difference to be able to speak to a homeowner at Halcyon. “It was invaluable for Phil and I to talk to homeowners at the Halcyon Landing open day.” Ruth says some people attending open days just wanted directions while others wanted details of what it’s like living at Lakeside. “I love telling them about what a ball we’re having and how Halcyon genuinely wants us to be happy here,” she says. “I tell them that people leave you alone when you’re at home but step off your doorstep and there’s always someone to chat to and lots of things to do. “It’s a very active lifestyle with so many activities to do and get involved with.” Halcyon Lakeside’s recently released its final stage, Elevation, which features 22 homes located at the highest vantage point in the community. The release includes some of the community’s largest covered alfresco areas to date, while continuing Halcyon’s signature inclusions of wide streets and lush gardens.

For more details about the open day, call Halcyon Lakeside on 1800 050 555.

CARING FOR CARERS Everyone needs a break now and then, especially carers. Caring for another person is a rewarding experience, but it can also take a toll over time. It is imperative that all carers look after themselves by taking some time out to rest and re-energise. When someone has a disability, or starts getting older, often their partner, family members or close friends step in to provide support. Australian Bureau of Statistics data released in 2015 reported there were almost 2.7 million unpaid carers across Australia, 856,100 of which were identified as primary carers. Many carers put a lot of time into ensuring their partners, family members or friends are living the best life possible, but naturally over time, caring for

someone else can be exhausting if people don’t take the time to care for themselves, too. The sad news is that carers are 40 per cent more likely to suffer from a chronic health condition, and often experience broken sleep, leading to prolonged tiredness. Taking breaks can often strengthen the relationship between the carer and the person they are supporting, while also creating opportunities for the carer to experience new activities, pursue their own interests and enjoy a social life during their down time. There are many service providers that provide in-home respite support, which gives carers time to rest and re-energise with peace of mind. Respite for a carer may mean taking a week off a few times a year for some time away, or a few hours each week to catch up on other activities. Respite can be accessed on a regular or as-needed basis and can be enjoyed at home or out in the community. You can relax knowing your loved one is still receiving the support they need, while you take a much-deserved break. There is government assistance available to provide emergency respite for carers through the Commonwealth Respite & Carelink Centre. Just Better Care will happily organise this for you.

You can have the same carer each week who knows how to make your tea just right!

Helping you live well at home: • Consistent carers • Choice and control for your care services • Low fees with no lock in contracts • 24/7 availability • Free in-home consultation

OVER 50s ASKING 50 CENTS FOR FARMERS

R

esidents at Nature’s Edge Buderim are calling on over 50s lifestyle and retirement communities to join them in fundraising for drought affected farmers by donating 50 cents from every drink bought at social events. Like many in the local community, Bryan Hughes and his fellow Social Committee members wanted to help after reading about the devastating effects of the current drought. Bryan Hughes says Nature’s Edge Buderim Social Committee will donate 50 cents from every drink sold over the bar until the end of September, giving the money to a Sunshine Coast-based aid organisation such as Drought Angels. Mr Hughes is aiming to raise more than $500 and the Nature’s Edge Buderim management will contribute an additional $500. The Nature’s Edge Buderim quilting group has also taken part in the drive for donations. The group made and raffled a quilt, raising almost $300 and bringing the total donation to more than $1300. Drought Angels co-founder Tash

Johnston says there’s a massive shortage of feed for livestock in Queensland. One truckload of hay costs more than $10,000 and lasts just three days to a week at most. “It’s easy to forget how tough it is for people on the land. We’re lucky to live on the Sunshine Coast and it’s only right we try to help where we can,” Mr Hughes says. “We hope other retirement community social clubs will join us in fundraising for this important cause.”

PENSION AGE STAYS AT 67 Today’s 50-year-olds will get to retire on the pension at 67 after Prime Minister Scott Morrison abandoned a plan to raise the retirement age. The Liberal party has planned for years to raise the aged pension age to 70 in 2035, but Mr Morrison dumped the idea. “For senior Australians the retirement age will stay at 67, it will not go to 70,” Mr Morrison told reporters on Wednesday. “If they want to keep working, well they can. But for those who aren’t in that position, the pension will be there.” National Seniors Australia says the move makes sense politically because one-in-two voters is over 50. But Labor leader Bill Shorten, who has long opposed the pension age lift, believes Mr Morrison will try to raise it again if the Coalition wins control of the Senate at the next federal election. “He wants to drop it because he is worried about losing his day job,” Mr Shorten told reporters in Townsville. Deputy Prime Minister and Nationals leader Michael McCormack described the about-face as “sensible and pragmatic”. “I think if you’re a tradie or a brickie or a shearer in rural and regional Australia, you don’t want some suit in Canberra telling you that you’ve got to work until you’re 70,” Mr McCormack told Sky News.

Council on the Ageing chief executive Ian Yates said the original plan had caused anxiety for people who needed to work, but knew it would be tough to get a job. The pension age plan was first announced by the Abbott government under thentreasurer Joe Hockey in 2014 but was never legislated. Under the original proposal, the qualifying age for the pension would have increased by six months every two years until reaching 70 years in 2035. It was expected to save the budget about $3.6 billion over four years. – AAP

One-hundred-and fifty guests enjoyed what has become one of the Sunshine Coast’s most unique fine dining experiences, in the process raising an incredible $55,000 in just over four hours to support at-risk children in our community. The sellout event has become a ‘must’ on the local social calendar. For one night only, the Maroochydore dealership service centre is transformed from a mechanical workshop into a restaurant – and back again – in less than 24 hours by a team of volunteers from the Ken Mills Toyota staff.

This year the theme was ‘Havana Nights’ with a stunning three-course Cuban menu developed and prepared by Capelli Foods. “This is an incredible result from one evening,” says Ken Mills Toyota dealer principal Brett Mills. “I am so proud of my staff who run this event, and humbled by the business community who donate prizes and their services, and grateful for the generosity of the guests who attend. Tickets sold out in record time this year, which is testament to what a fun night this is for all involved.” Among the attendees this year were Ken Mills Toyota ambassadors and professional netballers Stephanie Wood, Erena Mikaere, Cara Koenen, Madeline McAuliffe and Laura Scherian.

SUN SHINES ON COAST PROPERTY MARKET While southern city markets may be struggling, the Sunshine Coast property market is on fire. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

S

unshine Coast houses and units are making tens of thousands of dollars more for sellers now than this time last year, despite property markets in major cities entering tough times. Independent property valuer Core Logic has identified the Coast as the state’s most solid performer across both markets, with sellers typically securing 6.9 per cent more for their homes in June 2018 than in the same month the previous year. Core Logic’s quarterly update saw the Gold Coast experience the second highest increase at 4.8 per cent, followed by Wide Bay with 2.2 per cent and Cairns at two per cent. When it comes to units, the Sunshine Coast enjoyed the strongest increase with 4.6 per cent, followed by the Gold Coast on four per cent and Wide Bay’s 0.6 per cent. Sunshine Coast property experts say the Coast has found its stride with the unprecedented level of investment in large infrastructure projects, which has boosted employment opportunities and enhanced the appeal of an affordable property market. In fact, the Coast is operating in its own regional cycle, bucking the trends of the major cities, which are beginning to stagnate off the back of a boom.

AMBER FOX – The Property League The Property League principal agent Amber Fox has been in the industry since 2001 and says the Coast market has separated from the capital cities because of the unique blend of lifestyle, growth and accessibility. “We were amongst the first major regional areas to recover from recent lows and I think we’ve just gone from strength to strength as our own little market place since then,” she says. “Major cities have certainly felt some hurt on their housing values and in times past we have typically followed them. Whilst we have felt the typical winter quiet, we are not seeing anywhere near the decline that these cities have and with spring selling upon us, low stock levels and summer typically being our hottest months on the thermometer and in property – dare I say it – I’m excited.” Ms Fox says while there are overriding things that effect every location, including interest rates, lending criteria and global swings, the Sunshine Coast is in many ways self-sufficient. myweeklypreview.com.au

“It’s like we receive a muted effect of the bad bits and hopefully an amplified one of the good. We have lots of owner-operated businesses, so larger industries that don’t impact us as much. We are attractive to tourists. We boast an internationally acclaimed university. We have every type of lifestyle covered from mountains, beach, bush and the ‘burbs, plus every type of market readily available including elite, affordable, medium, family, professional and first-home buyers.

“We have every type of lifestyle covered from mountains, beach, bush and the ‘burbs”

“It’s all within an hour from one end to the other, nicely compacted and within reach of major shopping precincts, hospitals (and our medical services and cancer care are ever growing), main highways and a capital city. “This means we appeal to the owneroccupier and investor because our population is constantly growing, as is our infrastructure, employment opportunities and industry. Look at the amazing new estates that are getting filled, these major developers do their research before committing to years of land development. “The rental vacancy rate is around one per cent, let’s not even get started on holiday letting, and we have airport growth and new access to the highway from major suburbs planned. It’s all moving forward here.”

STEVE TURNER – Platinum Property Platinum Property’s Steve Turner says each major region across Australia has its own unique property market, which are rarely in sync. “We are currently bombarded by all the negative comments about the Sydney and Melbourne markets and these comments do not relate to the Sunshine Coast. “Unlike the southern markets we have not seen massive amounts of price growth over the past five years and we certainly don’t have an oversupply of units, houses or land so the Sunshine Coast cannot be compared in any way to the current markets in Sydney, Melbourne or even Brisbane. “The Sunshine Coast will enjoy a solid property market for the foreseeable future.”

ROSS CATTLE – Define Property Define Property principal agent Ross Cattle, who has been in real estate on the Coast for 26 years, says the Sunshine Coast has now outperformed the Gold Coast for the first time in history. “When you take a look at the Sunshine Coast from a lifestyle point of view, it’s very

unique compared to anywhere else in the country, find me another Sunshine Coast it doesn’t exist, so why wouldn’t it outperform the rest of the country in a world were lifestyle is what most sane people want?” he says. “It’s taken so long for the rest of the country to see how beautiful the Sunshine Coast is and it’s an amazing community of people. I think families are sick and tired of the big smoke and can sell up, cash in and buy a better home cheaper on the Sunshine Coast.” Mr Cattle says he is no longer a believer in seven-year cycles, because there are now so many factors that can impact the strength of the market. “I have seen many cycles, but the two standouts are the early 2000s boom and obviously the GFC, which was the worst time I have experienced in property,” he says. “I don’t believe in buying judging on the cycle. Buy when you’re ready, sell when you’re ready and invest with a strategy and a property that suits your strategy. “Choose an agent based on results and that offers a well-rounded marketing campaign. Selling cheap means you’ll sell cheap, don’t save a dollar and lose ten or twenty when it comes to marketing, it doesn’t cost a fortune but it could if you get it wrong. “There has never been a better time to buy real estate on the Sunshine Coast than today.” My Weekly Preview | September 21, 2018 49

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

So the difference between a turtle and a tortoise is that one can pull their head in when in danger. Sadly, a massive loggerhead turtle was not so lucky at Moffat Beach and had his head bitten off! He washed up and is too heavy to remove so I think he will be staying put for a bit. Meanwhile, things are looking ordinary in the way of waves, so it might be time for a road trip down south. Or, grab a cheap flight to Indo because you ain’t scoring around here for a while. Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? Great food but no atmosphere! Bahaha.
