his week I read an article about a young woman who was taken too soon. Before she passed, this woman shared her thought-provoking and inspiring words with the world. She wrote of mortality and how it triggers many realisations. She came to realise that stress, vanity and complaints are not worth energy or time because put simply, time is precious. It is a gift that should not be wasted on sweating the small stuff. Her words have stayed with me and her message constantly in the back of my mind: be grateful for each day, be thankful that you wake in the morning to greet yet another day. Our feature story this week also has me thinking, and I hope it reverberates with you too. Mindfulness coach Corey Jackson holds Cultivating Emotional Balance courses and is currently researching how mindfulness can help regulate emotions, particularly for people under a lot of stress. His hope is to have more people on this journey to rediscovering what life is really about. The story is on page eight. And for more motivation, be sure to read our interview with the founder of Food Matters, James Colquhoun (page 18). James, who has released his latest documentary, touches on belief systems, visualisation, meditation, connecting more with your true essence, your purpose and how to help serve others and create fulfilment. So until next week, I wish you days filled with happiness and hope.

Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, there is no puzzles page in this week’s magazine. But, don’t worry because your favourite puzzles page will be back in next week’s edition. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of what MWP has to offer!

LIFE ON THE SAND Where do you live? Kawana. First job? Wurtulla Newsagency. What are you currently working on? I am currently studying business management and marketing part-time. Your family includes? Mum, Dad, a younger brother and puppy. Favourite book? Looptail by Bruce Poon Tip or How to Be Everything by Emilie Wapnick. If your life was a book, what would be the title? Hard Work Trumps Talent. Favourite song and why? Better When I’m Dancin’ by Meghan Trainor – it always puts me in a good mood regardless of what is happening. When was the last time you played sport and what was it? I am still an IRB competitor and I used to play netball and touch football when I finished school.

surf girl

BIO Twenty-four-year-old Jessica Simpson joined Dicky Beach Surf Lifesaving Club in 2005 as a nipper. She became a patrolling member then patrol captain and for the past four years has been the club captain. As well as being an active lifesaver she is also a leader and is involved in developing youth in surf lifesaving. Ms Simpson took out the title of 2018 Summer Surf Girl and has won other awards for her dedication to surf lifesaving.

Your greatest regret? I don’t think I have one big regret. Maybe just saying no to missed opportunities. What achievement are you most proud of? My biggest achievement I am most proud of is probably being awarded the SLSQ 2018 Summer Surf Girl and having the opportunity to raise $100,000 for my surf club and being awarded the 18-25 Lifesaver of the Year. They are both incredible awards, which symbolise the hard work I have put in over the last few years.

“Don’t take life so seriously and don’t worry about what other people think of you”

Best advice you’ve been given? Feel the fear and do it anyway. I’ve learned that the greatest things happen when you step out of your comfort zone and feel the fear. Fear is only temporary and won’t last forever, so why not jump in and give it a go.

Jessica Simpson

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? I am not sure there was one specific day that was a turning point, but I think there was a time recently where I learnt not to take life too seriously. Things will always work out!

What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Wurtulla Beach because it is close to home and I grew up there, and I just love the walk through the trees to get to the beach. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? I don’t think I would change anything. I love the Coast vibe and lifestyle. It is perfect the way it is. Best day in your life and why? I think the day I won Summer Surf Girl. Not because I won but because all my closest friends and family were all together and everyone was having the best time. I had six tables of supporters on the night and I have never felt so loved and happy. It was the best feeling.

You are happiest when? When I am out in the sunshine enjoying life. What frustrates you the most? When I am wasting time. There is always something to do and I get frustrated when I am just standing around.

How do you deal with your frustrations? I try to be organised and plan things out.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Don’t take life so seriously and don’t worry about what other people think of you. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? My grandpa – he passed away when I was six and I didn’t get to know him very well. My grandmother – she passed away when my Mum was a young girl and I never got to meet her. Beyoncé – because she is just a legend. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I would probably take my family on a holiday then buy a house. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee – long black with a dash of milk and a tiny bit of honey. NRL or AFL? NRL (I don’t understand AFL).

With farming families arriving in Bli Bli during the late 1800s, children in the district needed to be educated. The Bli Bli Provisional School was supposed to open on April 1, 1901, but the teacher did not arrive. The next day was more positive as teacher Mr Alec Purdon arrived on horseback and the provisional school no. 952 was officially opened on April 2, 1901.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare reports that around $9 billion was spent nationally on mental health services during 2015-16. This equates to about $373 per person.

Mindfulness techniques can help anyone achieve more meaningful engagement with the world – if they do it right. My Weekly Preview finds out what it’s all about, from those whose lives are dedicated to becoming more mindful. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“With enough [mindfulness] training, you can notice you’re getting angry and realise it’s not helping. You can change your focus” Corey Jackson


rin Ashley was walking through Sunshine Plaza in 2009 with her husband when without warning, he dropped to the floor and died, right in front of her. It’s the kind of shock that would send anyone down selfdestructive paths in order to numb the pain, but Ms Ashley chose a different path. She chose mindfulness. “He was only 35,” she says. “It was totally unexpected and they could never determine a cause of death. “My daughters were four years old and four months old at the time. I could have told myself stories about how unfair it was for them. Why did it happen? It’s all a story and I got to choose whether to make it an empowering story or a victimising story. I chose to design a happy future for myself.” Ms Ashley wasn’t new to mindfulness. A former marine scientist, she’s practiced yoga for 20 years but says it wasn’t until experiencing the sudden death of her husband that she really learnt the healing benefits of mindfulness, which underpins both yoga and Buddhism. The word mindfulness has its origins in the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit and literally means: ‘remember’. It was popularised in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, who designed an eight-week stress-reduction program for chronically ill patients to improve mental and physical health. He described mindfulness as “awareness that

rises through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally”. Ms Ashley credits mindfulness with helping her survive the biggest trauma of her life and subsequently going on to meet her new husband, success coach Kurek Ashley, who she married three years ago and lives with in Eudlo. It also enabled her to stay strong for her daughters. “I feel my previous practice had built a degree of resilience. Because of the

the chair, noticing my breath, starting to train my attention to focus on an object in real time. “What happens to a lot of post-traumatic stress syndrome sufferers is that the mind wants to flash back to the traumatic event and replay it over and over again. That’s a natural thing for the mind to want to do and the neural pathways to flash back like that. “To come out of living in the past or an event that’s happened in the past, you

“Day by day, those mindfulness moments become longer and longer and the flashbacks to the trauma become less and less” Erin Ashley

extremity of the scenario I definitely went into a shock mode afterwards, a post-traumatic stress period. It really took reminders of mindfulness to be able to access those resources again. It started with noticing simple everyday things again. For example, if I was sitting in a chair, even if seconds at a time at first, being able to notice myself in the chair, feet touching

need to tune into real-time moments – grabbing seconds, even washing the dishes and noticing the temperature of the water. Day by day, those mindfulness moments become longer and longer and the flashbacks to the trauma become less and less. “That experience of detaching from story and coming back into experiencing

life in the present moment enabled me to pretty quickly lead a happy life again,” she says. “The next step was to teach it to others; to share this gift I felt I’d received.” Ms Ashley completed her yoga teacher training in 2013 and went on to do mindfulness coaching training at the Eudlo Buddhist retreat Chenrezig Institute with teacher Corey Jackson. Mr Jackson is wary of using the term mindfulness because he says it has been misinterpreted and commodified in recent years – there are 9.7 million posts under #mindfulness on Instagram at the time of writing and cynics sometimes refer to it as McMindfulness. “There is no standardisation of the term and it can mean radically different things,” he says. “I’m cautious when I use it. I have a clear definition that comes from India.” Mr Jackson reads and writes Tibetan and has a degree in psychology and Sanskrit from the University of Sydney. He’s currently studying a PhD in mindfulness at the University of the Sunshine Coast and is a practicing Buddhist. “The official definition of mindfulness from Sanskrit is ‘the non-forgetfulness of the mind in relation to an object, having the function of non-distraction’,” he says. “The object is just something you pay attention to, it could be a memory or your breath.” For his PhD, Mr Jackson is researching how mindfulness can help regulate

FEATURE STORY people to sit with themselves The next Cultivating long enough, stuff comes up. Emotional Balance course If they have no background will run at the Chenrezig in how to deal with it, that’s Institute in Eudlo in dangerous. There are February. Visit the Cultivating Emotional people out there teaching Balance with Corey mindfulness or writing Jackson Facebook page books who don’t have a or background in the training and Corey Jackson emotions, particularly for people under a lot of stress. He works with paramedics, PTSD sufferers, oncology workers, teachers and hospice workers, helping them to remain emotionally balanced in the midst of a stressful situation. In 2011, Mr Jackson became a certified teacher of Cultivating Emotional Balance, a mindfulness program co-founded by Dr Paul Ekman and Dr Alan Wallace. “Alan Wallace and Paul Ekman have taken authentic practices as they exist in text and taught them to be useful in the modern world. The techniques are taken straight out of Buddhism and applied to emotions. “The first component is attention training, or mindfulness. That’s the key element,’’ Mr Jackson says. While the techniques are derived from Buddhism, he points out the difference between practicing mindfulness and being a Buddhist. If you’re meditating and practicing mindfulness in order to achieve a favourable rebirth in the next life or achieve enlightenment, that’s a Buddhist concept. Mindfulness practice on its own is secular, but he cautions people to seek out a teacher who really understands the concept, can properly define it and pass on its many benefits. Mindfulness techniques stretch back through 2500 years of peer-reviewed practice and he says they really do work. “To oversimplify them or water them down means you just don’t get the potential of the results you could get from them. “There was a mindfulness backlash a couple of years ago. There was this idea there was a darker side. People were struggling in their meditation – if you get

are not in a position to help. You have to back people’s practice up with understanding.” While you could be forgiven for thinking mindfulness is the key to all the world’s ills, Mr Jackson says it does have its limitations. “On its own, it gives you the option to prevent a destructive reaction. With enough training, you can notice you’re getting angry and realise it’s not helping. You can change your focus. You can make yourself a coffee or look at fluffy kittens. That’s about as much as mindfulness on its own can do.” Insight, kindness and compassion training come next, but many people find just getting their heads around mindfulness is enough of a challenge. To begin implementing mindfulness right now on your own, he suggests this: “Whenever you can, scan through the body top down. Start from the face and look for muscles that are tense and just try to relax them. Get into the habit of doing that, and then set up cues. A phone ringing is a good example. When a phone rings it instigates all these automatic reactions. Sit back, scan the whole body and get relaxed. Then very intentionally answer the phone. The same is true for a crying child. As soon as you hear a crying child, just relax and engage with the child and be fully present.” The great thing about mindfulness is that it’s not a destination, but a journey. You can start anywhere and go as far along the path as you like. When Mr Jackson teaches beginners, he suggests they practise the technique for just 15 minutes a day. “They usually begin to experience the results in a week or two,” he says. “From there, it’s how enthusiastic you are about it. I got really interested in it. I’m a fanatic, but it doesn’t have to be like that.”

MINDFULNESS FOR KIDS Jessica Mcilveen is a social worker from Sippy Downs with a background in child protection and foster care, who trained as a yoga teacher to help with her work. She runs yoga classes for children between the ages of four and 18 both in foster homes and in NGOs such as Mission Australia and Uniting Care. “Children absolutely love yoga,” she says. “Children who’ve experienced trauma, all they want to do is move their bodies, because that’s when they feel safe. When they’re sitting still, it creates feelings of anxiety. Most of the time, their favourite part is the meditation time. They don’t know why, but they finally get to feel calm, be in a safe space where their body feels relaxed. “Mindfulness is the foundation of yoga,” she says. “It’s about being present. We’re trying to ensure the child’s mind and body are in the same place. When they have extreme anxiety, their mind is in the future

and their body is in the effects of what happened in the past. “We teach them breathing techniques to ease their anxiety. We make breathing bracelets, which they can have in their pocket at school, something they can turn to to make them feel more comfortable. “In terms of anxiety, the breathing is super important. A few children go to their room and use their breathing feather or their breathing bracelets rather than getting really angry and throwing things around the room or at the carers. “I find it the most rewarding job I could ever have hoped for,” she says about working with children. “When these children finally get something, it’s life changing for them. It’s life changing for me too. If they can go through their day without as many explosions or feeling a little bit better about themselves, that’s why I do it.”

MINDFULNESS TIPS FROM THE HAPPINESS TRAP The Happiness Trap by Dr Russ Harris suggests we are all caught in a psychological trap, where the more we strive for happiness, the more we suffer. The book offers mindfulness techniques to help people break the cycle. Try these mindfulness techniques from the book: • Once a day, examine and appreciate a familiar object that you normally take for granted.

• When you eat something, take the opportunity to savour it. • Next time it’s raining, pay attention to the sound of it. • Next time it’s sunny, take a few moments to appreciate the warmth and the light. • Before you get out of bed in the morning, take 10 deep breaths and focus on the movement in your lungs. Cultivate a sense of wonder that you are alive.

The Sunshine Coast Council has released the Brisbane Road Car Park site valuation and as at October 2, the valuation shows that, based on the existing development approval which includes retail, residential, hotel, retirement and the encumbrance of the 704 council-owned, publicly-accessible car parks, the site has a value of $16.25 million. The site was valued in 2016/17 at $12.264 million. The council decided to divide the Brisbane Road Car Park site at Mooloolaba into two parcels and call for tenders to design and construct a multi-deck 700-bay car park on the northern parcel of land facing Smith Street.

ONE HUNDRED The Sunshine Coast’s Eternal Flame monument took centre stage on Remembrance Day to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Signing of the Armistice at 11 am on November 11, 1918. The flame, which is the centrepiece for the newly-completed memorial in Cotton Tree Park, uses an LED lighting system instead of gas. Maroochy RSL president Michael Liddelow headed the project and funding for the $244,000 memorial was contributed by the Maroochy RSL, Sunshine Coast Council, Queensland RSL, Federal Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien and State Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson.

NEW ACCESS ROAD FOR ANIMAL REFUGE The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (SCAR) has continued operating during the extensive road works being conducted along the Bruce Highway just outside the entrance to their Sippy Creek venue. Those wanting to get to the SCAR can no longer enter through Frizzo Road. People wanting to visit to adopt cats or dogs will need to take the new connection from Cunning Road in Tanawha and follow through to Sippy Creek Road.

DRAMATIC INCREASES ON EXTREME HEAT FORECAST Households, businesses, power generators and public infrastructure on the Sunshine Coast are under increased threat caused by a continuing increase in extreme heat temperatures, according to new research from The Australia Institute. The Institute’s new HeatWatch initiative, which uses CSIRO–BoM modelling, shows that the number of extreme heat days (over 35C) experienced here could increase up to 10 times current levels and extreme heat nights (over 25C) could be the summertime norm by 2090. The Australia Institute Climate & Energy Program director Richie Merizan says in the past there have been few days over 35 degrees, but if we don’t reduce emissions, that will change.

The Giles sisters have emerged as likely contenders to win this season’s Family Food Fight. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Judges Tom Parker Bowles, Matt Moran and Anna Polyviou (left) and the Giles sisters Nicole and Bec (above)


s eight families of two walked into the Family Food Fight kitchen on October 26 to begin the battle for culinary supremacy, two Sunshine Coast-raised sisters appeared to form one of the least intimidating teams. But the Giles sisters, Bec and Nicole, have been dubbed the ‘smiling assassins’ by the Nine Network, and while they appear sweet and innocent, Nicole says they have an extremely competitive side that has served them well throughout the competition. Nicole, who now lives in Melbourne, says her older “sister

from another mister” Bec taught her how to cook because “mum was terrible at it”. “Mum used pre-made packet stuff and sauces out of the jar. When me and Bec moved out, that’s when our love of food started,” Nicole tells My Weekly Preview. “We were travelling and getting more interested in food and I learnt a bit off Bec so it was easier for me. She had to start from scratch.” Because of the different ways they learnt to cook, Nicole says they function very differently in the kitchen when they work together. “I am more of a recipe person and love learning from recipes, whereas Bec is more of a hands-on experimental person. But it works well; we both know where we stand in the kitchen and where we stand with each other and we complement each other well when it comes to the challenges,” she says. The 22-year-old admits she hadn’t heard of Family Food Fight when Bec, who now lives in Brisbane, first suggested they enter. So she binge-watched the inaugural 2017 season

to see what it was all about. When she found out they had made the cut for this season, Nicole says she was super keen to meet judge and dessert queen Anna Polyviou, lead judge and acclaimed chef Matt Moran and food critic Tom Parker Bowles. “I think I was excited to see all of the judges; it was all new and amazing to me,” she says, “I definitely smile and I laugh at every situation possible, even if we’re not doing too well. Bec is also the same, but she definitely can knuckle down and be serious whereas I kind of struggle with that side of things. “I hope viewers enjoy having a laugh along with me while watching the show.” Matt Moran, who owns successful restaurants including Aria in Brisbane, and regularly holidays in Noosa, says the 2018 season evolved into a “very different show to last year”. “It has been a lot of fun and there are a lot more dramas this year with contestants who are a lot more competitive. “People are getting upset if they don’t win or if they are not in the right position in their eyes.” Mr Moran says he didn’t let the feistier competitors influence his judging style or critiques as he gets to watch on from the commentary position with the other judges, all-seeing and all-knowing as the blow-by-blow action unfolds at the stoves and benchtops. “I just sit there and take it in my stride,” he says. “I understand what it’s like to be competitive. I’m pretty competitive myself. So I understand how it can be hard for them to get feedback from us and because they don’t see all of the conversations we have while judging, they can question us sometimes. “Cooking takes time and it’s not an easy thing to learn. Time is knowledge and my knowledge is pretty good.” Mr Moran says the Giles sister are “great girls and good cooks” and he is pleased to see their competitive side come out when it really counts.

See our local girls in action on Family Food Fight on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm on Nine.

NEW DOCO TACKLES THE BIG QUESTIONS Sunshine Coast filmmaker James Colquhoun is a man on a mission – to inspire and uplift humanity. He talks to My Weekly Preview about his latest documentary, which shines a light on our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


ames Colquhoun is known around the world as the filmmaker of the hugely successful films Food Matters and Hungry for Change, and as the founder of FMTV, which is like the Netflix of health and wellbeing. When Food Matters was released in 2008, it was ahead of its time. Now Mr Colquhoun and wife Laurentine ten Bosch have released a new documentary series, which they say is their best work yet. It’s called Transcendence – Live Life Beyond the Ordinary. “As a filmmaker I’m always looking for what is going to be normal in 10 years’ time,” he says. “Ten years ago we spoke about raw foods, detoxification, intravenous vitamin C, goji berries, spirulina. These things are all quite common now. “What are the conversations people are going to be having around the biggest challenges of our time in 10 years? Stress, suicide, depression, cancer, anxiety. We look at some of the biggest challenges people are going through and how we can handle them most efficiently. “We talk about food, breathwork, cold exposure, belief systems, visualisation, meditation, connecting more with your true essence and your purpose to uncover more of what your gift is. How you’re here to help serve others and create fulfilment in others.” Mr Colquhoun grew up on the Sunshine Coast and met his Dutch wife while studying at the Australian Maritime College in Tasmania. When Mr Colquhoun’s father became ill and the medication he was taking led him to suicidal thoughts, the couple set about scouring the globe for the latest research to save Mr Colquhoun’s father’s life. Now, they’re on a mission to save the world. “I feel a need to help reprogram humanity,” he says. “That seems lofty, but I think we’ve been programmed unwillingly by social media, news media, the TV, to feel inadequate, to feel scared. The news is always about death, pain, fire, destruction. We’re told to be anxious and worried about the political

Laurentine ten Bosch & James Colquhoun situation. Is your dog doing to die without this tick treatment? If your teeth aren’t white enough, are people going to love you? We’re not really programming ourselves for health and happiness.” Drawing on research and interviews with high-profile personalities, doctors and thought leaders, including Novak Djokovic, Mark Hyman, Libby Weaver, Bruce Lipton, Wim Hof, Gabrielle Bernstein, Joe Dispenza and Marie Forleo, Transcendence spans five episodes that delve into the current state of our physical, emotional and mental health. The stories Mr Colquhoun shares are fascinating, such as the sole heir to a billiondollar business who gave up his fortune to move to the woods and build a log cabin, a Dutch man who can withstand extreme cold and holds 26 world records, and a man who ran a marathon in every state of the US.

Mr Colquhoun, who divides his time between the Sunshine Coast and Vanuatu, is fascinated by indigenous mindsets and practices, like walking barefoot to maintain a connection to the earth. “I was driving home the other day and it was Sunday in Vanuatu – church day. There was an old man walking along in his Sunday best – white pants, white shirt, briefcase – and it was raining torrentially. I saw this gentleman and I thought, poor guy. I asked if he wanted a lift to the village and he said, ‘no please, I’m okay, no problems’. “Rain was pouring down his face. We run from our cars to the house under an umbrella so we don’t get wet. Here’s this guy absolutely saturated and absolutely at peace. I want to explore being uncomfortable – it has really amazing positive biological effects. “We all know someone who has lived for

100 years and didn’t eat that well. You look at the people who live a long, healthy, happy life. It’s all to do with the mind. How you answer the question ‘how are you?’, sends a message to your body that either you’re happy and ‘thank you beautiful body’, or ‘this is a struggle, let’s start shutting down now’. “There’s a lot of science on this now. What we think, how we speak, how we act, is ultimately our gift to our children and it’s an incredible gift. How can we live in a more conscious way that can benefit ourselves and others?” Mr Colquhoun begins his day with a focus on hydration, drinking water with salt, lemon or apple cider vinegar, followed by a green juice containing celery, cucumber, lemon and apple. If he’s drinking coffee, he’ll drink it with butter and coconut oil. “Your morning ritual can be so profound in changing a habit,” he says. “Take your time to make your bed. When your feet hit the ground, say to yourself how amazing it is to live another day. I do some form of breathwork or mindfulness or meditation.” Mr Colquhoun is clearly a man living his best life, and helping others do the same is at the heart of what he does. “People are grappling with anxiety and depression. We want to look at how the culture scape might be affecting people. If someone says, ‘my goal is to be a lawyer’. Really, why? Is it because your parents want you to? Is it because you get notoriety? What do you really want to do? What makes you get up in the morning? It could be helping others. It could be something really simple. How do you connect to those simple, more primal elements and uncover what makes you happy? What do you absolutely love doing if you strip it back? It might be knitting. How can you explore doing more of that every day?”

HUNTINGTON BEACH: IT’S GNARLY We’ve just discovered the coolest place to hang, even if you’re not a surfer. WORDS: Melissa Woods, AAP.


n Australia we’re surrounded by some of the world’s best beaches, so why would we go to California’s Huntington Beach? Because, as the surfers say, it’s gnarly! From its famous pier to its welcoming locals, Huntington Beach is definitely worth a trip. It hosts the week-long US Open surfing competition each July, which draws a crowd of around half a million fans. But wave-lovers flock here all year round. However, as a non-surfer, there’s still plenty to love about this place. Located about an hour’s drive (travelling outside peak hours) from LAX and about $US60 ($85) in an Uber, you can be swimming or surfing in the Pacific before you know it. It’s also a perfect base for day trips to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure Park, which are both around half an hour’s drive, while Universal Studio is an hour or so away. The weather in summer hits the high 20s, while the sand is golden and the water clean and clear.

There are plenty of hotels along the Pacific Coast Highway with the Spanish-style Hyatt Regency among the best picks. But you can’t go past the Kimpton Shorebreak. Over just three levels, the boutique hotel is across the road from the pier and is decorated with surfing-inspired artwork, photographs and funky decor. It’s like a big, modish beach house that you share with friends. Shoes are optional and dogs are welcome in all parts of the hotel, with a bowl of treats on the front desk to welcome them when they check in. The hotel is also a hit with some of the professional crew, including Australian surfer Sally Fitzgibbons, who is a regular guest during the US Open each year. Shorebreak has bikes and boards on standby for guests and even a climbing gym in its workout area. I found its nightly, complimentary drinks hour in the lobby area a perfect way to mingle. Fire pits are hugely popular at Huntington and are dotted right along the coastline, with

beachgoers arriving before breakfast during peak times to claim the best ones. The hotel also has a number of cosy fire pits and S’mores kits available from reception. If roasted marshmallows and chocolate sandwiched between crackers aren’t your thing, there are plenty of eating options within walking distance. Some are at Pacific City, an outdoor mall a couple of blocks from Main Street. There are more than a dozen restaurants and cafes, including Fitzgibbons’ fave, the super healthy Lemonade, while the buzzy and delicious Mexican eatery Ola has queues out the door. There’s even Pie-Not, an Aussie-style bakery set up by Queenslander Jai Snowdon and an American partner, which specialises in teaching the locals to eat a pie with one hand. Every Tuesday afternoon, Main Street is closed off for a market, which is the perfect place to stroll along and pick up some souvenirs or snacks to the sounds of buskers. But you can’t visit Huntington Beach

without going for a surf, and Toes on the Nose surf shop in the Hyatt Regency resort has some first-rate instructors. Thankfully the location is down the beach from the hugely popular pier, so as a beginner you don’t have to worry about getting in the way. My teacher, Dawson, had the perfect mix of patience and pushiness – he had me standing up after only a few goes. The Hyatt also has a lovely day spa, where you can linger in the steam room or lounge about with magazines and a cool drink after your treatment – the perfect way to end your day. The writer travelled as a guest of Visit Huntington Beach, Surf City USA

IF YOU GO: GETTING THERE LA is a 13-hour flight from Brisbane. Huntington Beach is about an hour’s drive from LAX and about $85 in an Uber. STAYING THERE Kimpton Shorebreak Hotel (500 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach) is popular with couples, families and their pets. It’s located right across from the famous Huntington Beach pier. Prices start at $304 per night for a deluxe queen room. For more, visit PLAYING THERE Toes on the Nose surf shop runs surfing lessons. Visit

Meet Gavin, the legendary Mercedes-Benz Van Man Gavin Grant explains why the all-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is the finest office on wheels.


he minute you meet Gavin Grant you know he’s a good guy. A softly spoken man who emanates integrity, he takes pride in exceptional customer service and this has earned him the national title of Mercedes-Benz Vans Sales Executive of the Year for three years running. “We made a conscious effort four years ago to have a dedicated commercial vehicle division within our dealership. That’s really what made us different to other dealerships. I want our commercial vehicle customers to have exactly the same experience as those buying a new MercedesBenz passenger car. “The standard among Mercedes-Benz dealerships is very high around the country,” he says. “To win the awards, it certainly felt like a special achievement. I certainly couldn’t have done it without the support of the great team here.” As well as Mr Grant’s personal awards, Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast was named Rural Vans Dealer of the Year in 2017, 2015 and RunnerUp 2016. For a local dealership to achieve such success in the Light Commercial Vehicle space is indeed a remarkable achievement when you consider our region’s population and demographic. Mr Grant is excited about the all-new

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and is keen to share his enthusiasm with his customers. Ask him the question: why buy a Sprinter? You’ll get an answer that draws on his in-depth knowledge of the Sprinter’s history, which has been built since 1995 and has been the number one selling large van in Australia for 20 consecutive years. “The new Sprinter has been built on a proven platform,” he says. “The engine and transmissions have been updated and improved, but the main thing is the driver assistance features. When a customer thinks about buying a van, they often think about how much it can carry and how much you can fit in it. The driver tends to be forgotten. “The driver of a van can be in the vehicle for a long period of time. It’s their workplace, their office. This is a really comfortable office with upgraded seating. The steering wheel controls are taken directly from the passenger car range. It has things like blind spot assist, lane keeping assist and a reversing camera. “Most of my customers are small to medium business owners. They have different needs when they buy a vehicle. They look at total cost of ownership – what they pay, how much it will cost to run and what they’ll get back for it at the end.

“Although the initial purchase price for a Sprinter might be slightly higher than other commercial vehicles, when you look at the low cost of running them and the strong resale value, they often turn out to be a smarter exercise.” According to Mr Grant, 92 per cent of ambulances in Australia are Sprinters and Australia Post has just renewed its van contract with Mercedes-Benz to be its preferred van supplier. “The reason for that is they’re so well-known for their safety and reliability,” he says.

Mr Grant is a walking encyclopedia of Mercedes-Benz facts – did you know there are 1700 variants of the Sprinter? And there’s no mistaking this is a man who loves what he does. “I feel proud to come in here every day and represent what I sincerely believe is the best brand on the commercial vehicle market and work with a great team of people that share a similar vision. We’re proud of the awards we’ve won and we want to keep on giving Sunshine Coast customers the best possible service that we can.”

The all-new Sprinter. Ready for you with exceptional comfort. Ergonomically designed for optimal comfort so everything is within reach, the all-new Sprinter will make your road time less taxing so you can work more efficiently than ever. Features include: • Ergonomically shaped seats with optional 4-way lumbar support, electronic controls and memory function • Numerous modular stowage compartments • Automatic climate control (optional) • KEYLESS START® • Multi-function steering wheel • Electrically foldable exterior mirrors

Sami Muirhead misses her chance to get a selfie with Kerri-Anne Kennerley, but learns some life lessons from the dame of Aussie showbiz.


t’s been a tough week. Have you ever had a fan-girl fail? I was dissed, dismissed and left dishevelled and devastated by one of my biggest girl crushes: Kerri-Anne Kennerley. KAK came to town dressed in a canary yellow showstopper of a dress and the minute I spied her perfect blonde hair and manicured nails I made a mad beeline to tell her I am her number one fan. I obviously came across as a bit of a lunatic in my enthusiasm as security asked me to leave Kerri-Anne alone. Security, people! I was a bit slow on the uptake a bit dazzled by Kerri-Anne and all her glory so instead of stepping away from the TV host, I pulled out my phone to get a selfie. Well. It was as if I had pulled a gun on the president of the United States. Robocop security guy in the black suit once again looked at me and in a most stern voice said, “Look, I will say it again: step away from the Kerri-Anne”. What was happening? I’ll tell you what wasn’t happening. I sure as hell was not getting a selfie with my ultimate mentor. KAK swished away in her vision of yellow and I was left surrounded by my girlfriends who thought my rejection was the funniest thing they have seen this year. It is fair to say I did not get an interview with her, so I did something really dodgy: I pulled out my phone and recorded her best bits on stage. I need to share them because I love KAK’S outlook on life as she does things her

way. As the dame says herself: “You can still wear a party frock and be taken seriously.” Amen to that! I think we are missing role models who have grit, brains, decorum, and an amazing work ethic and don’t mind a bit of fun. KAK ticks all those boxes. When asked about the tough times of late since her husband John suffered permanent spinal injuries: “Everybody goes through things,” said Kerri-Anne. “You have a choice how you handle life every minute, every hour and every day. And it does not mean it is easy, as it is not. Our life changed and it is crap, but it is our crap. We could wallow in self-pity for a long time and that feels good for a minute. But it is heavy being down. It is heavy carrying those psychological and emotional burdens. So if you can actually err on the other side instead of walking through treacle or concrete, you just can more easily flow through. It does not mean it is going to be easy but make a choice. Do you want to be down low or up high?” I felt as if KAK was talking straight to me. I approached her for a second time to tell her that we have so much in common and I feel we should be best friends. I think I startled the showbiz queen and old Robocop was quick to pounce on me again. Left broken-hearted, I went home and sent an Instagram message to KAK explaining I am not a lunatic but I just love her. I am yet to hear a response.

Richard O’Leary says it only takes a day out at an amusement park with your kids to discover how brave you really are.


he French musician Edith Piaf once said she’d like to see one person – just one – who would own up to being a coward. Well, it may have come more than 50 years too late for her, but I’m happy to admit I have been a coward, and not just once. I don’t think it’s a massive admission of inadequacy and I’m sure many of us have deserved a white feather, or two. But I do admire little acts of bravery. I see people perform them every day. I witnessed one close up when I took my two boys to the local amusement park. My eight- and 10-year-olds have starkly different approaches to rides. The eldest loves going on the highest, fastest and scariest, while my youngest is more cautious. I’ll tell you a story and you work out which one is the bravest. All three of us agreed to go on the Redback – the most gut-churning challenge in the park. Picture the pirate ship ride accompanied by 360-degree turns. We all talked the talk and walked the walk on the way to our seats, but when the harness pinned my youngest, he would not have a bar of it. He was out of there, and being a good dad, I followed him to make sure he was all right (it was pointed out to me later I did leave my 10-year old to face it alone). My eldest loved it and when it finished, we all explored the rest of the park.

But the Redback kept luring my eight-year-old to its web, and when it was his turn to pick the ride, he chose to confront his fear and have another go, while I observed from a bench in the shade. He lasted a bit longer the second time, but he still bolted before it started. But as soon as his feet were back on solid ground, he lined up again. The attendants were a bit wary by this stage, but he insisted, and they relented, sensing something significant was about to happen.

“I’ll tell you a story and you work out which one is the bravest” This time was different and his smile in the first moments of the ride was Luna Park-ish. But that grin turned to a grimace as the ride flew higher until he could bear it no more and called for it to be stopped – and to the park attendants’ credit, that’s exactly what they did and my youngest walked off without looking back. He didn’t care what people thought, he was confident enough in himself to say I don’t want to do this any more. That’s something I would never do. I would have suffered in silence – a cowardly silence, and I’m brave enough to admit it.

light Centre Travel Group (FLT) is a company that is dear to many on the Coast, especially our clients. A colleague of mine claims he’s the biggest supporter of the Buderim branch with his back-to-back overseas adventures. Flight Centre provides a complete travel service for leisure and business travellers in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, New Zealand and Europe. The stock has been a standout growth company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) since its list date in December 1995. However, in recent months it has suffered a hefty share price decline from a recent all-time high of more than $70 to where it is today in the mid $40s. We see this price level as a great entry point into the stock for investors who don’t own it. Our latest research highlights that operating conditions for the outbound

25.indd 1

leisure segment remain sound with good volume growth in the range of three to five per cent per annum and flat to slightly higher airfares. At the same time, concerns regarding FLT being vulnerable to a change in discretionary spend, lower currency and declines in housing prices appeared excessive given our analysis. Our research also suggests that travel expenditure does not behave as a consumer discretionary item and household consumption expenditure is the key driver of outbound holiday travel. We note that agent numbers in the Australian business were down 350 during financial year 2018. However, we see that numbers have now recovered, though it takes around six months for agents to deliver incremental profit. This means that earnings should begin to accelerate from the second half of 2019 onwards. A cocktail of increasing agent numbers, solid volume growth and slightly higher airfares could represent a strong tailwind from 2019. Flight Centre offers a strong forecast yield of 4.1 per cent fully franked and our 12-month price target is $64.12.

hile the great Australian dream of owning your own home is more elusive for younger generations, older Aussies are proving luckier, with 73 per cent of over 65s owning their

own home. And they’re a clever generation too. An Australian Productivity Commission study found that seven in 10 retirees preferred to keep their home as a safety net.

BEAT THE SUMMER HEAT The Department of Health reports that 94.4 per cent of older people continue to carry out their regular activities during hot weather. Maintaining an active life is important for overall wellbeing, but during the summer months, there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure you stay safe while you remain active. Just Better Care provides some tips:

HYDRATION IS KEY – Older people can have a reduced capability to sweat because of health problems or medications. Not properly registering the temperature can lead to dehydration. Better Health Channel recommends adult women should consume about two litres of fluids per day, and adult men 2.6 to prevent dehydration. Keeping hydrated throughout the day wards off heatstroke and delirium, keeping your body happy and healthy on a hot day.

Yet care, health and housing needs to change as people age. That’s why downsizing can be attractive for people who want to own their own home, but with reduced maintenance hassles. Nature’s Edge Buderim is no longer the area’s best-kept secret. An increasing number of over 50s from the greater Buderim area are discovering the joy of upgrading their lifestyle while remaining an active part of the community they know and love. Residents at Nature’s Edge Buderim have access to an exclusive, five-star Leisure Centre with a 20-metre sparkling swimming pool. Escape the heat in the boutique air-conditioned cinema, relax in the fully stocked library or enjoy sunset drinks on the east-facing deck overlooking the rainforest. Right now, Nature’s Edge Buderim is even more attractive with the release of a special home collection ready to move in by Christmas, with $10,000 cash back (for unconditional contracts signed by December 31).

Call the lifestyle advisers at Nature’s Edge Buderim on 1800 218 898; email or visit

STAYING COOL AT HOME – Air-conditioning your home is an effective way to keep yourself cool and comfortable. If you don’t have air conditioning, make sure you spend time in the coolest part of your home, or spend some time in air-conditioned spaces such as shopping centres. SUN SAFETY WA Health advises that some medications can increase the likelihood of sunburn and heat stress. Older skin can also be more sensitive to the sun. Protect yourself by wearing a high SPF sunscreen, lightweight protective clothing and a hat. Wear protective sunglasses, and spend time in the shade.

COOLING DOWN WITH A SWIM According to Senior Health 365, “Immersing in water, even a degree or two colder than the core body temperature, can lead to hypothermia in the elderly.” Always ensure you are swimming in the company of friends or family, especially in open water, and ask someone to check the water depth.

ANOTHER AWARD FOR HALCYON Lifestyle developer Halcyon has continued its stellar run as Australia’s most awarded developer of lifestyle communities by taking out the Seniors Living accolade at the annual Urban Development Institute of Australia’s Queensland Awards in Brisbane. The company’s $140-million Halcyon Lakeside community at Bli Bli on the Sunshine Coast topped the category for Queensland in 2018. Halcyon Lakeside is the third project of Halcyon’s on the Sunshine Coast following the creation of its Halcyon Parks and Halcyon Landing communities, which have also been UDIA award recipients in a range of categories, along with its sister Gold Coast projects Vision by Halcyon and Halcyon Waters. The win qualifies Halcyon Lakeside for a nomination in the 2018 UDIA National Awards. Halcyon joint managing director Dr Bevan Geissmann says the Sunshine Coast has proved a happy ground for the company in terms of market traction and industry recognition. “We are delighted that our ongoing efforts to deliver the best possible lifestyle options for over 50s on the Sunshine Coast have been recognised by the UDIA once again,” Dr Geissmann says. “It reflects our unwavering commitment to developing communities that set a benchmark for the industry, respect the environment and surpass the high expectations of our home owners. “All three of our Sunshine Coast communities are UDIA award-winning, which only deepens our resolve to continue creating communities in this beautiful part of Australia. “A big thanks must also be said to Lakeside’s experienced and responsive management team.”

n. The String Horse Race is a Nature’s Edge Buderim traditio

Fascinators out for favourites fun The colourful silks and fascinators were out in force at Nature’s Edge Buderim last week as 170 residents and friends celebrated Melbourne Cup Day in the 5-star Leisure Centre. The high-ceilinged auditorium was beautifully themed with Spring flowers as the mid-morning fashion parade rolled out, followed by a catered lunch and a special auction. Nature’s Edge Buderim residents were bidding for “string horses”, to compete in what became one of the most competitive horse races north of Flemington. A string horse race involves “jockeys” having to “reel in” a wooden horse from the start line behind them, all the while keeping elbows on bent knees.

Elizabeth Taylor and Barry White – yep, their real names!

John and Trish Jordan in colourful style.

The Cup Day event was colourful and fun with an entertaining dose of friendly competition. Summing up, it was sunshine and smiles all round.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT Interior designer Adrian Ramsay reveals the styling tips that will maximise buyer interest in your home.


ith so many people looking to buy into the Sunshine Coast property market, now is the perfect time to assess whether you are ready for a change of scenery, to upsize for a growing family or downsize if you are looking for less maintenance. There are a number of things that will have an impact on the potential sale price that you can achieve for your home, but interior design guru Adrian Ramsay knows one thing homeowners can control is how their property presents to the market. A stylish and functional home will captivate potential buyers and when multiple people love your property, you are more likely to get the best price for your home or unit. Mr Ramsay shares some simple tips with My Property Preview to help sellers optimise their home’s value. Like any first meeting, Mr Ramsay says it is all about first impressions. “Remember, when potential buyers arrive at your house for a viewing, their experience of your home starts from the street the moment they get out of their car. Make sure the journey from the car to your front door is a good one,” he says. “If potential buyers enter via your garage,

First impressions count when you want to achieve the best possible sale price for your home. is it tidy and well-organised and is there space to park the car? If they will be walking along a driveway, is it in good condition and free of trip hazards? If they will be walking through a front garden, is the area well manicured?” Now that the buyers have reached your front door, Mr Ramsay says you should take

the time to stand in the doorway and look at the first view newcomers will get. “Take the journey yourself and experience what they will see,” he says. “Would the front door benefit from a fresh coat of paint? Could you smarten up the area with planters on either side of the front door? Once people are inside your hallway, assess what they will see.” Looking at how areas can be de-cluttered is a good first step and then consider the overall flow of the home and if all areas are easily accessible. When looking at areas to renovate, Mr Ramsay says “When thinking re-sale, it’s vital to get the kitchen right.” Think about whether there is enough space for several people to use it or move through it at once and if there is ample storage, bench space and easy-to-clean finishes. “It never hurts to oversize a kitchen – it adds to the feeling of luxury in your home. “There are very different types of cooks out there: some will want to use the kitchen every night, while others will barbecue four

nights a week. Consider this and install a great kitchen, backed up with an outdoor area set up for alfresco cooking and entertaining. “Next to the kitchen and living spaces, the most important rooms to get right are the master bedroom and ensuite,” he says. “They should feel spacious and tranquil. Try to include a generous robe, ideally a walk-in, and create a restful atmosphere by choosing muted colours and finishes, and warm, low-level lighting – pendant lights and lamps are far better than harsh overhead ceiling lights.” When it’s time to consider the backyard, think about who your ideal buyer is. “If your home is likely to attract young professional couples, they probably won’t want a garden that will need daily tending. “Consider alternative types of gardens that can be maintained with simple reticulation and minimal weeding, such as native, pebble or succulent gardens. If your home is better suited to families, a shaded deck or patio and a lawn are likely to be important features.” Mr Ramsay says planning is the key. “Remember to keep it simple and plan for the entire home (including landscaping) and keep your target market at the top of your mind,” he says.

s 2018 draws to a close, many of us are wondering what next year will hold. Will we punch out another year in a job that is starting to lose its lustre? Or is it time to think of something new, something that challenges us and rewards us for the hard work we put in? The Real Estate Institute of Queensland – the real estate profession’s only peak body and trusted training organisation – is running its highly acclaimed registration course on the Sunshine Coast from November 21 to 23. With some of the best real estate trainers in the country leading the classroom learning, the REIQ is the largest training organisation in Queensland for real estate courses. REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella (pictured) says a career in real estate is appealing to many at this time of year as people start to plan their personal and professional goals for January. “Real estate is a very popular choice with many career-changers who, after a few years in the workforce, understand that they want a job with greater flexibility of working hours and more financial rewards for the effort that they put in,” she says. “Also, there is so much variety in a real

estate career. Many think it’s simply selling real estate, but it includes jobs such as commercial property sales or property management, residential rental property management, auctioneering, business broking, buyer’s agency roles. “Really, the range of choices for working with a real estate qualification surprises a lot of people.” A career in real estate starts with a registration course. It gives you all the tools you need to get started in a career where you could be your own boss very quickly. For further details about the course, or to register, visit

with MWP’s man in the water

So another week of on-shore predicted! Yay! It certainly puts up an argument for wave pools. The only people really making the most of these conditions seem to be those with a foil. I even had a look at Indo and the forecast is really not much better. I guess you can watch the Triple Crown as it marches towards the Pipeline Masters in December or head south where curious sharks await. It’s a great time to get the kids out there in these small conditions and let them enjoy the stoke. To foil or not to foil, that is the question!
