THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 532 January 4, 2019
The Elton John Experience will hit the Maroochy RSL on January 12 and we have one double pass to give away. The two-course dinner and tribute show features an unforgettable full-scale concert with all the showmanship, virtuosic piano playing and crowd engagement you would expect from the legendary performer. For the Elton John fans – and even those who simply love music – this is one show not worth missing.
FROM THE EDITOR
ell, 2019 is officially here and I can’t help but ponder what the new year has in store. As with any other evening, the clock ticks over from midday into a fresh day, but that shift from December 31 to January 1 holds significance for many. It symbolises a fresh start, the chance to form new habits and to set goals. It is also a time to look back on our achievements and celebrate accordingly. According to research agency Statista, some of the most common New Year’s resolutions include eating healthier, getting more exercise, better self-care and of course, saving money. The financial experts say that creating and sticking to a budget is one of the most important commitments you can make not only for the present, but for the future. And given the new year, we thought it was a great time to help our readers get on the right budgeting path. For our first feature story of 2019, deputy editor Leigh Robshaw has spoken with some money experts who share their tips on how to get ahead financially and save money. There are some great ideas, many which are quite easy to follow. Turn to page 14 to read the story for yourself. Also this edition, we profile successful comedian Jimeoin, take a look at some great (free!) ways to keep busy these holidays and have all the usual beauty, fashion, entertainment and property. Enjoy! I hope 2019 brings happiness and good health to you and your family.

BY THE NUMBERS
Mount Coolum is a volcanic plug, 208 metres in height, rising from the coastal plain and with part of its base projecting into the ocean to form Point Arkwright. The name Coolum is thought to be derived from the local Aboriginal word gulum or kulum, meaning ‘blunt’ or ‘headless’, referring to the shape of Mount Coolum, which has no peak.

BUDGETING: IT’S EASIER THAN YOU THINK Kicking yourself for spending too much over Christmas? Make this the year you get on top of your finances and stick to a plan that will ensure you’re not feeling the same way this time next year. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
Noel Whittaker is one of the world’s foremost authorities on personal finance and has written 20 books. He is currently an adjunct professor and executive-inresidence with the Queensland University of Technology, as well as a committee member advising the Australian Securities and Investment Commission. He lives in Brisbane and has a house at Sunshine Beach. Personal finance expert Noel Whittaker says the biggest budgeting mistake people make is not doing it. “It’s a bit like making a will, you can always leave it one more day,” Mr Whittaker says. “You need to know the importance of it. I’ve got a checklist I give out to people. I say you need a mate. It might be your partner and if you haven’t got a partner, it might be

your parents, brother or kids. “It’s a bit like going for a jog. It’s easier if it’s two people together. You say I’m going to meet you at six and we’ll go for a walk. The first day of the month you say, let’s sit down and look at the budget. It’s easy once you start.” Mr Whittaker says Christmas is a dangerous period, a time when many people spend money they don’t have. “Afterpay terrifies me,” he says. “With Afterpay and credit cards, you always spend more than you think you will. If you can’t afford it today, how are you going to afford it in a month’s time when all the school fees arrive? “Afterpay and credit cards are the same as far as if you pay on time, there are no fees. But it doesn’t feel like spending real money. From time to time, I’ll get a $100 bill in my pocket and to spend it is torture. With a credit card, you just go ‘swish’. Putting it on plastic doesn’t feel like spending real money. “If you’ve got a credit card debt, you’ve got a problem. If you can’t pay back your credit card debt, you’re spending more than you are earning. It’s only going to get worse. The whole thing about credit cards is it’s not so much that you buy what you don’t need, but that you don’t realise how quickly the debt is growing. Every time I get the statement, the balance is always far more than I thought it was going to be.” He doesn’t go as far as the ‘Barefoot Investor’ Scott Pape, who shuns credit
cards completely. Mr Whittaker says that’s just not realistic. He does, however, advise using debit cards instead of credit cards where possible. Mr Whittaker says no one is born being a good budgeter and it’s a skill everyone can learn. “There are those who do it and those who do it and say they can’t do without it. The hardest thing is moving from not interested to actually doing it. There are those of us who are more interested in saving money than others. For years I’ve pushed the 7-11 fuel app. I’ve spoken about it and most people don’t care. I have no idea why.” When it comes to sticking to a budget, Mr Whittaker says it all comes down to discipline. “You’ve got to say, that’s it. Most people are in a relationship and you need to discuss it with your partner in a sensible way. “It’s a matter of getting into the habit. The hardest thing is to start and then it’s lack of routine that kills it. “I’m fine till we go on holidays. Twice a week we go to Pilates – without fail. But if I’m away, it’s a bit hard to find somewhere to do it so I don’t. It’s the same with budgeting.” For those on variable incomes, Mr Whittaker suggest budgeting around your lowest pay week or month, so that any more than that will be a bonus. And when it comes to budgeting apps, he says any tool is great if it works. “But again, most people don’t bloody well do them.”

FEATURE STORY obsolescence, where all our objects are designed to break outside the warranty period. I didn’t want to be in an industry where I was manipulating people, making their lives harder. “When I had my first child, I watched mothers be manipulated into buying things they didn’t need. Because I knew how to do it, I thought no, this isn’t good enough. So I started helping mums realise they had more choices.” Mrs Lippey says people are manipulated into overspending at Christmas time and wants to help them wake up. “Last year at Kmart, a couple of days before Christmas, half the shelves were empty. It looked like there had been a cyclone. People are so desperate and frenetic. Humans are herd animals and the idea of the Boxing Day sales is to whip people into a frenzy, make them irrational and vulnerable. Marketers go, ‘dumb, dumb, dumb’. The goal is to get people to drop their barriers. It’s amazing the extent to which that works.” Mrs Lippey runs a Facebook group that is becomes inundated with people needing help just after Christmas. “January and February are always difficult months,” she says. “You’ve got to plan ahead, because you know these months are difficult. We have a no-spending challenge, which is where you cut out all the non-essential spending for a month. If families are on two incomes, they can save one income.” She says non-essentials are prepackaged food, chocolate, wine, new clothes, toys, movie tickets and beauty products, unless you need them to earn an income. “Even meat is questionable at the moment because it’s so expensive,” she says. “There are many tricks to make vegetarian meals taste good. It essentially comes down to adding more fat. Legumes can be satisfying if you add more fat.” She draws the line at asking people to give up coffee, however. “Coffee is an addiction,” she says. “If you try to get rid of your addictions on a no-spend month, then you destroy the entire month. Maybe this time you can do the month without stopping coffee. When people stop
SIMPLE WAYS TO SAVE MONEY • Cut back on coffee and alcohol. • Make your lunch at home. • Have people over for dinner rather than going out all the time and ask everyone to bring a plate of food. • Borrow books and DVDs from the library. • Lock up your credit card and only pay for things with cash. • Instead of buying new clothes, hit the op shops. • Only buy new clothes on sale. • Grow greens at home instead of buying them. • Buy generic products instead of brand names. • Cut down on meat or buy cheap cuts and use a slow cooker. coffee they’re not very nice to be around. Keep the coffee, but be more organised and bring it from home. “I advise people to stop, think and save. Stop and think about every purchase, do your research, put as many barriers between you and making a purchase as possible. Ask yourself: What will I gain? What will I lose? Do I have the cash? Is there a better way or a smarter way? Delay, delay, delay. How low can you go?” Asked whether this isn’t a little on the penny-pinching side, Mrs Lippey says she’d rather call it smart shopping. “If you aren’t clever, they will take your money from you. There are marketers out there with multimillion-dollar budgets. You have to protect yourself.” In her own life, Mrs Lippey follows a ‘no budget budget’, which means she spends as
little as possible at all times. Her husband keeps the family budget on a spreadsheet and she does her bit by keeping the expenses down. She avoids credit cards and Afterpay. “They’re traps,” she says. “Fool’s gold. If you don’t have the money to pay for it, you cannot afford it. It’s as simple as that. There’s no magical time when you’re going to have twice as much money as you do now.” She acknowledges that many people use credit cards as a safety net and suggests this trick if you really can’t bear to part with yours – put it into an empty plastic container, fill it with water and freeze it. When you want to use it, you’ll have to wait for it to defrost, which may give you the time you need to avoid an impulse purchase. Another trick is to wrap it in a ball of wool, which makes it harder to get at when you spot a fabulous pair of shoes you just have to have. “If you are going to have a spare credit card, make sure it’s not in your wallet,” she says. “If it’s an emergency card only, it has to be hard to get at.” To keep you on track with your budget, Mrs Lippey recommends using apps like You Need a Budget and is now developing her own budgeting app, which she hopes to release next year. Mrs Lippy says it’s wise to take things slow when implementing a new budget. “Only do one thing at a time and keep it small, keep it simple,” she says. “Don’t try to do everything. You don’t have to do it all in a month. We used to have a 12-month challenge and the job was to change one wasteful habit a month, like buying bottled water. Set up memory triggers to say, ‘hey, take your water bottle with you’. Put memory triggers in your wallet to remind you to stop, think and save when you’re out. You need a barrier between you and the marketer.” When considering why many of us are so bad at budgeting, she echoes Noel Whittaker’s words: “The biggest mistake people make with budgeting is hiding from it. Pretending it will all go away or it will take care of itself if you don’t make a plan. A fool and his money are easily parted. You have to take charge of it.”
WHAT BUDGET? Scott Pape is the author of the bestselling book The Barefoot Investor: The Only Money Guide You’ll Ever Need and the more recent Barefoot Investor for Families. Mr Pape says he’s never been able to stick to a budget and that for most people, they don’t work. He believes budgets set you up to fail. His method of attaining financial freedom is radically different to most out there and with more than a million copies of his first book sold, it has struck a chord with Australians and seen the rebellious young maverick featured in The New York Times. In his recent book The Barefoot Investor for Families, he says there are only 10 things kids need to know about money and you can teach it to them over dinner, once a week. Central to Mr Pape’s money plan – which he says you can write in 10 minutes on a restaurant serviette – is his strategy of opening four online, interest free bank accounts and giving each one a name. The idea is to allocate certain percentages of your income to daily expenses, a short-term ‘splurge’ account, a long-term ‘smile’ account and an emergency account. With his first book having sold 1.3 million copies, breaking every nonfiction publishing record in Australia, he may be onto something. Visit barefootinvestor.com.

WHITE IVY LOUNGE LAUNCH PARTY A group of lovely ladies in white turned out to celebrate the launch of White Ivy Lounge at the former Ebb Restaurant premises in Duporth Avenue, under new ownership and management.

Reels & How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Holidays mean long days, family trips to the beach and summer movies. If you’ve caught the new Mary Poppins movie and watched Ralph Breaks the Internet, there’s another reason to get to the air-conditioned comfort of one of our cinemas after a new kids’ flick opened yesterday (January 3). The third and final instalment in the saga of our favourite animated Viking and his dragon pals is How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Hiccup is now the ruler of Berk and with Astrid by his side, has created a dragon utopia. But the chaotic fun doesn’t last long and after danger threatens the village, Hiccup and Toothless must journey to a hidden world to discover their destinies and save their world.

Summer is not just about beaches and barbecues – it’s also a great time to chillax with a summer read or escape to the cinema. Here are our picks of new release books and movies.
Mary Queen of Scots
The trailers have been tempting us for months but on January 17, we finally get to see Margot Robbie in full Elizabethan glory. The Australian actress (as Elizabeth I) shares the screen with the equally talented Saoirse Ronan as Mary, Queen of Scots, Elizabeth’s cousin and rival. Shortly after becoming a widow as an 18-year-old, Mary Stuart returns to her native Scotland from France to reclaim her throne. But the indomitable Elizabeth I stands in her way. Packed with plot twists and palace intrigue, the film tells the story of the cousins’ tumultuous relationship, which, from the opening scene, we know will not end well for Mary. The film has had mixed reviews, but it will undoubtedly be a visual feast.
Also out on January 17 is the much-anticipated M Night Shyamalan film Glass. Love him or hate him, there’s no doubting that Mr Shyamalan’s films are unique. Glass brings together the narratives of two of his other films – Unbreakable and Split. Security guard David Dunn uses the supernatural abilities he discovered in Unbreakable to track Split’s Kevin Wendell Crumb in his superhuman persona of The Beast (it’s just one of 24 personalities) in a series of encounters. Meanwhile the shadowy presence of Elijah Price, who now goes by the name of Mr Glass, emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets that is crucial to both men. Don’t see this one alone.

STOCK UP ON THESE SUMMER READS
Call Me Evie Author: JP Pomare Publisher: Hachette Australia RRP: $29.99 If your literary taste swings to Gone Girl and The Girl On The Train, stick JP Pomare’s debut novel on your shopping list. It’s the story of Evie, a young woman held captive by a man named Jim in an isolated New Zealand beach town. Jim says he’s hiding Evie to protect her, because she did something terrible back home in Melbourne. In the creaky house that is her prison, Evie starts piecing together the fractured memories of the events that led her here. Is Jim really keeping her safe? Can Evie trust Jim? Can she trust her own memories? This beautifully written thriller is the definition of a page turner, with characters that keep you guessing and a plot that is frustratingly compelling. As all good thrillers should be.
The Gilded Wolves
A Tale Of Two Cities
Kerry O’Brien – a memoir
Author: Roshani Chokshi Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $16.99
Author: Charles Dickens Publisher: Penguin RRP: $19.99
Author: Kerry O’Brien Publisher: Allen & Unwin RRP: $44.99
Set in Paris in the late 19th century, the story revolves around Séverin MontagnetAlarie, a treasure hunter and wealthy hotel owner who loves a secret. The world is on the cusp of change and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets of Paris, and when an all-powerful society called the Order of Babel seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered an unimaginable treasure. All he has to do is retrieve an ancient artefact for the Order – and stay alive in the process. But Séverin won’t be able to go alone. Like so many other young adult novels, you don’t need to be a teen to enjoy The Gilded Wolves. It’s brimming with intriguing characters and a fascinating world built by the author who penned The New York Times bestseller, The Star-Touched Queen.
The recent rioting in Paris is a timely reminder that the French have had a long history of taking to the street to protest their government, or their monarchy. Dickens’ story centres on the ageing Doctor Manette, who, after 18 years as a prisoner in the Bastille, is finally released and reunited with his daughter, Lucie, in England. But the doctor is soon to return to Paris, after the pair meet exiled French aristocrat Charles Darnay and brilliant English lawyer Sydney Carton. The four people’s lives will then be forever entwined thanks to their shared love of Lucie. From London to the blood-soaked streets of Paris, the story unfolds in the shadow of La Guillotine and the shady characters who ruled the streets during France’s Reign of Terror.
It might take you a while to get through Walkley award-winning journalist Kerry O’Brien’s memoir. This weighty tome is laden with his reflections on the social and political upheavals he has witnessed in his 70-plus years on this earth, and the personalities – such as Barack Obama Nelson Mandela and Margaret Thatcher – who made history. The former 7.30 Report frontman has interviewed the great and the good, including global leaders and politicians, philosophers, artists and scientists, and has borne witness to life-changing events, both good and bad. While his experience is expansive, his memoir is an intimate account told with wit and wisdom, where O’Brien reflects on the big events, the big personalities and the big lessons learned.

Free holiday Ewen Maddock Dam supplies much of the regionâ€™s water, but itâ€™s also a great place to escape the summer heat and enjoy a family picnic or barbecue in a beautiful, shady spot. Maddock Park, which is just off the Mooloolah Connection Road, Mooloolah, has a playground and picnic tables, plus free barbecues. There are toilets and a shaded kidsâ€™ park in front of the carpark and it only takes a minute to walk to the picnic and swimming area. Set up camp for the day and explore the easy walking and mountain bike trails that follow the perimeter of the dam through beautiful bushland. After a walk or ride, take a dip in the fresh water to cool off. Thereâ€™s a small sandy beach area where you can set up chairs and towels and the swimming area is roped off and safe for kids.
For active kids, check out the new Beez Kneez black-diamond mountain bike trail in Caloundra Town Reserve on Sugar Bag Road. The trail opened last month after local riders and trail builders Trailworx led the construction team. Queensland Minister for Sport Mick de Brenni says the new trail is unique â€œwith gravity flow trails, two major gravity generators, three wall rides, jumps, multiple timber skill features and a step-up finish. All this is packed into a heart-stopping 900 metres set in natural bushland.â€? Hardcore riders and beginners alike will love the 12 kilometres of trail.
Entertaining the kids these school holidays doesnâ€™t have to be expensive. In fact, there are many activities you can do as a family that wonâ€™t cost a thing.
For the next three Mondays (January 7, 14 and 21) pop into your local council library for colouring-in, puzzles and other activities. All ages are welcome and itâ€™s free. For babies and toddlers up to two years, there are Rhymetime mornings that feature songs, rhymes and finger plays, while two to five-year-olds can take part in Storytime activities. The regionâ€™s council-run libraries are in Maroochydore, Kawana, Beerwah, Maleny, Coolum, Nambour and Caloundra. For more library-located fun, head to library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and click â€˜whatâ€™s onâ€™. The Sunshine Coast isnâ€™t known for its abundance of snorkelling spots, but there are a few beaches in the region where you can grab your snorkel and flippers and have a close encounter with marine life, and even spot a turtle or two. Thereâ€™s a shallow reef at Point Arkwright just south of Coolum thatâ€™s a good spot to kick around. Just park at the picnic area near the lookout. On a calm day when thereâ€™s no surf, Moffat Beach also offers snorkelling opportunities. Or you can head around the bend to the Shelly Beach picnic area, where the rock pools are always worth exploring. Point Cartwright is also a beautiful spot to explore when itâ€™s calm and the tide is full. Park at La Balsa and follow the track around the bend and make camp on the sand.

A BEAUTIFUL HOME FOR A GREAT ORGANISATION Bruce and Denise Morcombe realise a long-held dream as they put the finishing touches on Daniel House at Palmwoods.
t’s a much-loved Sunshine Coast organisation that does incredible work in our local community and around the country, so it’s not surprising that 80 local businesses came together to contribute materials and services to help build Daniel House, the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s soon-to-be administrative hub. And they are almost done – the team that is building Daniel House is in the process of putting the finishing touches on the structure, which is set to have its grand opening on February 15. As well as being home to the foundation’s administration centre and national office, the group will also run its Walk Tall program from Daniel House. Walk Tall offers free counselling services for survivors of crime. The foundation will also continue to deliver its Keeping Kids Safe programs and resources and co-ordinate Australia’s largest national day of action on child safety awareness, Day for Daniel. The State Government provided $900,000 in funding to help complete the build. Sunshine Coast businesses have also been generous in contributing about $500,000 to the project, while individuals and community groups have also

contributed through the House for Daniel Buy a Brick Campaign, which ran through September last year. “Hats off to everyone. This is outstanding and a huge motivator for us to continue to deliver on the foundation’s aims,” says Bruce Morcombe. “We are honoured that the local building community has joined with us to help make Australia and the Sunshine Coast a safer place for all children,” adds Daniel Morcombe Foundation CEO Holly Brennan. “Child safety is everyone’s business and the Coast really takes that pledge to heart.”
The vision of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation is to create a future where all children and young people receive education, protection and support to be safe from abuse and harm. The foundation has delivered education to more than 260,000 students across Queensland and visited more than 1000 schools and communities around the country.
There are a number of ways the community and local businesses can help the Daniel Morcombe Foundation. Go to danielmorcombe.com.au to find out how.

PIGGY BANK UPGRADE Pigzbe is a physical piggy-wallet connected to an app. Parents send it digital coins for pocket money and special occasions and the gadget teaches kids how to save, budget and manage their digital money. Children can earn Wollo, the cryptocurrency established by the company who manufactures Pigzeby, by having it transferred from the parent app through to their Pigzeby and they can watch their savings grow with their own moneytree on the interactive game. Every Pigzbe comes with 200 Wollo for parents to distribute, which is enough to fund 10,000 tasks. When you run out, you can buy more Wollo online. Pigzeby is still in the design phase and has launched a fundraising campaign through kickstarter.com.au. For more information visit kickstarter.com.au.
BIG TECH BOOST COMING TO REGIONAL QUEENSLAND Regional Queensland will get access to faster, cheaper internet using the state-owned fibre optic network. The tech scheme will utilise an enormous amount of spare capacity along 6000 kilometres of fibre-optic cable, which was installed throughout regional Queensland to service state-owned corporations. A new state-owned entity, called Fibreco, has been set up to lease the capacity to internet retail service providers and will be operational by mid next year. More than 600,000 homes and businesses from the Sunshine Coast to Cairns, through cities such as Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville, and smaller surrounding towns, will benefit from the internet boost. The network also stretches inland as far as Emerald, Roma and Toowoomba. Regional Queensland has been highlighted by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission as one of the least competitive markets in the country. â€“ AAP

JIMEOIN: “LAUGHTER – IT’S PRETTY GREAT” After almost three decades in the business, Irish funnyman Jimeoin is still going strong and is bringing his show Result! to the Sunshine Coast. Get ready for a good laugh. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
IMAGE: JAMES PENLIDIS
e’s been called the king of observational comedy but sometimes even Irish stand-up comedian Jimeoin faces criticism for his knack of turning personal anecdotes into stage fodder. “I never really have a message. I’m very influenced by what I see and what I like,’’ he admits. “My wife gets a real flying. It’s more about the relationship between man and woman when you’ve been with someone for a while. “She never watches my show. She couldn’t think of anything worse,’’ he adds with a laugh. Thankfully, thousands of people around the world love to hear Jimeoin’s marital narrative. His latest tour has taken him from the United Kingdom to New South Wales, and soon to the Sunshine Coast where he will perform later this month. When we speak, Jimeoin has been cooped up in a Newcastle hotel room. I think he is grateful for the distraction. “Sometimes these are the only conversations I have in the day,’’ he says. “I travel on my own a lot of the time. I keep myself busy… I’m writing for a show in the UK, so I’m working on that non-stop. I enjoy writing, if you’re not enjoying it, it’s like pulling teeth. It’s all or nothing.” I have to ask if he takes work into the family home. I can’t help but picture him cracking jokes and trying out his new material over the dinner table. “I don’t think so. I’m one of these people who leave the job at the door. “I have a lot of fun at the home… I enjoy the family.” Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Jimeoin is eager to hit the road for his Sunshine Coast show – he usually brings the family, including all four kids. “I like the east-coast trip. They (my family) do come up quite a bit. It’s nice. “We drive from Melbourne doing gigs. By the time I get there I’m tired… then we always have a holiday.” This year, there won’t be time for too much play as Jimeoin is set to jet straight to the UK following his Australian shows.
“That’s hard work,’’ he admits of the next leg of his tour. “There is a different place every night. It keeps me busy and that’s the key to my soul. Everyone gets annoyed with work, at the moment I really enjoy it. “It’s a really creative art form. It’s really creative to sit down and come up with ideas that are different from others. Stand-ups, we’re into it in a big way. “Trainspotters are into trains… we’re into this at a level… a big way. I absolutely love it. “It’s just a really enjoyable art form because you can get on with it. You don’t have to talk to anybody, you don’t have to
run your idea past someone. TV and films have ruling committees. This, I can just do it. I love it.” Through the years, Jimeoin has had success on the screen with hit flicks The Craic and The Extra, as well as his threeseason television offering, Jimeoin. But it is stand-up that continues to call his name. “It’s a skill,’’ he says. “If you stop doing it, you lose it. I have an act, it’s an act I’ve worked on for a long time. I tend to stick with my jokes and get on with that.” And get on with it, he has. The comedian has been entertaining audiences for close to three decades. It’s impressive considering he started his career on a building site. From the age of 18, he spent four years in London studying the theory and practical of the construction industry. His first job had him working 10-hour days, six days a week. He soon grew tired – or in his words, “had a gut full of that” – and his tendency to find humour in life spawned his next career move. “Yeah, I was (the class clown),’’ Jimeoin recalls. “We had a bunch of mates. You know those more outgoing people at school, I wasn’t one of those. I was mumbly… a lot of boys fall into that category. “I loved drama at school and wanted to be an actor. In London I’d go to drama workshops.” However, it wasn’t until he reached Australia that his on-stage career took off after he decided to give this stand-up thing a red hot go. “It was the first time that I was talking about something that was really what I wanted to be talking about and everyone finding that funny. “The next day at work, things had changed in my mind but I know that none of these people knew what had happened. I have to find the voice and do this. “Laughter, it’s pretty great. I wouldn’t want to be a politician.”
Jimeoin’s Result! show is at The Shed at Aussie World on Saturday, January 19. For tickets visit aussieworld.com.au.

CAN’T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD
Sami Muirhead discusses an affliction 92 per cent of the population suffers from – earworms. Read on at your own peril.
Rebecca Grisman says good times and bad times don’t happen according to calendar years. It’s just life – and change can be a blessing in disguise.
he song Baby Shark went viral last year and I have still not recovered from it. My kids love it and because they are smart little monkeys who can use that little round machine where Google does everything for you and answers your questions, they request the song be played about 3877 times a day. They run around the house snapping their arms open and closed as if they are a pack of great whites consisting of baby sharks, mummy sharks and grandma sharks (as the song goes). So now there are Baby Shark toys that will be released in the next week and they play the annoying but oh-so-catchy tune, which means the things are about to reach pandemic proportions. I will tell you why: Baby Shark is a giant earworm. You cannot shake this song once you hear it. If you are one of the 92 per cent of the population who regularly experiences earworms – snippets of music that pop uninvited into your head and will not go away – you may wish there was a way to make them stop. Some say chewing gum works. Others say you need to listen to the song in its entirety. So what do you think the world’s most unshakable song is? We can thank Disneyland for not being able to budge It’s A Small World After All out of our heads. Believe by Cher is also a repeat offender when it comes to the list of most annoying songs. “Do you believe in life
after love?” will be in your head all day now. Sorry! What about Macarena, You’re Beautiful by James Blunt and Barbie Girl by Aqua for really annoying earworms, too? A super big earworm is also that Blue song by Eiffel 65. “I’m blue, da ba dee, so blue da ba dee.” Oh make the bad man stop singing in my head! Roar by Katy Perry sticks like glue at 2am in the morning when you are trying to sleep. The same can be said for Shake It Off by
“I literally cannot get it out of my head for days after I hear it” Taylor Swift and All The Single Ladies by Beyoncé. But for me there is one song I can never get out of my head: it is Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head with all of her glorious, “La la la la la la la la la” singing. I literally cannot get it out of my head for days after I hear it. We used to have an Elsa doll from Frozen that would belt out Let It Go in the middle of the night when my little girl rolled on it accidentally. That doll and that tune nearly drove me to madness. Let’s hope the batteries run out super quickly on these new Baby Shark toys. And sorry if I have planted a song in your mind. “La la la la la la la la.”

t was a momentous year of milestones in 2018 for many of my family and friends. Not all were welcome, and although we are still reflecting on the ending of things, I’m focusing on the new beginnings those endings can create. I don’t think any calendar year is innately good or bad. I believe life just happens and how I choose to respond to the occasional rollercoaster is ultimately what can wind me, or wind me up. Often the very thing that blindsides you today can be a blessing in hindsight. Sometimes it takes time and the will to see it that way. As an example, I began my niche marketing business from home a decade ago, just as the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) hit hard. I weighed up the option of clinging instead to commuting to a safe, city job with lots of perks but few opportunities to grow or progress. I imagined that starting a new consultancy would be challenging, probably madness – and it was uphill at first, but in fact the GFC presented more work than I guessed, because many companies chose to outsource their marketing needs as they downsized. My timing was accidentally perfect. This year I was so busy working with clients nationally, travelling, juggling home life, studying a whole new industry
and learning on the fly, that I completely forgot to mark the 10-year anniversary of my business. That’s a pretty good problem to have, as the saying goes. It is not always simple or fun to see the possibilities and the positives in change, but it can make a big difference if you always have something to look forward to that you’re passionate about. I like the summer heat because it means pool swims under the stars with my son. I don’t begrudge the traffic that means tourists and visitors. I like to see my local cafes and bars busy, I can wait my turn. I love the Australia Day long weekend for bringing the Murphy Homes Maroochy Classic surf carnival to my favourite beach and a barbecue with the Hottest 100 playlist in my neighbour’s backyard. I am looking forward to joining the guys I know who get together every year to watch the Superbowl at The Post Office; it’s the one time this year I’ll eat hot dogs and drink beer. I will even get some sense of satisfaction from having to close out my year and pay my BAS, because that means my business is still growing and enabling me to do what I love. So, welcome to the new year! Whatever is behind you, I hope you’re keen for all the goodness that is ahead. Let’s keep looking forward to whatever comes next.

COLES VS WOOLIES
n a back to the future moment, grocery chain Coles has relisted as a separate company on the ASX after being owned by Wesfarmers for the past decade. The food retail outlook appears more balanced and is improving, but we would like to see greater clarity on the company’s food strategy, along with an end to the declines in convenience business earnings, before taking a more positive view on the retailer. Food deflation is moderating in dry grocery, and the fruit and vegetable category has recently turned inflationary after making a deflationary contribution for some time. The changes in management and focus at Coles suggest it will not be the driver of deflation. Fresh food remains an area of market
share headroom for Coles and Woolworths. Dry grocery share between the two majors is circa 70–75 per cent, but in fresh food categories it is only around 50–60 per cent. The Coles liquor business is poor in comparison with Woolworths, in our view. It has a weak big box format, sells too little wine and too little private label product, and it also lacks overall scale in sourcing and broader fixed-cost leverage. Earnings growth from the Coles units will be greatest from the liquor business as private label and network optimisation continue, but our expectations are modest given the inherent limitations in the Coles offering. The significant cost savings flagged by Coles are long-dated, and need food inflation to drive earnings growth. The reliance on food inflation is due to Coles facing some hurdles that Woolworths does not, or at least not to the same extent. The Coles store network is well-pruned, but it lacks quality at the upper end, with fewer stores than Woolworths that achieve sales of $2 million or more per week. In addition, supply-chain cost savings for Coles are somewhat modest compared with the savings from automated distribution centres that Woolworths will enjoy from the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Supply chain savings do partly help in fiscal 2019 and 2020, but automated distribution
centres savings do not flow through until fiscal 2022 and 2023. Convenience earnings continue to fall. Coles has endured declining total and like-for-like fuel volumes in recent years since the change in ownership of alliance partner Shell to Viva Energy. Viva is charging Coles higher supply prices as it focuses on dollar profitability rather than the volume strategy that Shell employed. This has led Coles to charge customers a significant premium. The fallout is declining fuel volumes and site productivity now well below Woolworths, despite Coles having far superior site quality. Overall, Coles provides an earnings stream that is somewhat defensive – but not as defensive as that of arch-rival Woolworths. Valuation support for the stock is also lacking, given it trades on a high-teens forward price to earnings multiples and offers only a sub-five per cent dividend yield, in fiscal 2019.

Brian and Lila Thompson
New Leisure Centre makes an impression Brian and Lila Thompson love showing off the new Leisure Centre at Nature’s Edge Buderim to friends. The contemporary design, bespoke ﬁnishes and extensive facilities are making quite an impression. “The centre has a warm and welcoming feeling. Everything about it speaks of quality workmanship. I love the opulent touches … the grand piano, busts above the ﬁreplace and the artwork in the hallway,” said Brian. “The library is peaceful and tranquil with its deep carpets and elegant furnishings. It’s the perfect place to sit in the morning with a coffee and the paper.”
Like being on holidays
Convenience and lifestyle
The convenient location and proximity to the coast were drawcards for Brian and Lila, who moved to Nature’s Edge Buderim to downsize and escape the “busyness” of Brisbane. The well-travelled couple spend several months of the year exploring Australia in their 4WD and caravan and say living at Nature’s Edge Buderim is “like being on holidays”. “When we return from a trip, we open the patio doors and it feels like we have moved from one holiday location to another,” Brian said. “It’s bright and breezy with high ceilings and views to the rainforest, like a holiday house.”
The active and varied social calendar keeps Lila so busy that she needs a diary to record what’s on. “There is something on every day. Water aerobics, yoga, ﬁlm screenings. You could never be bored,” she said. “We are very happy and content. Nature’s Edge Buderim is an ideal location with a gorgeous Leisure Centre and I absolutely love our house.”

RISING SIPPY DOWNS STAR Leigha Moore is off to Tamworth to compete against the country’s top stars.
eigha Moore has been announced as one of Australia’s top 10 emerging country artists and a grand finalist in the 40th Toyota Star Maker. It’s a big opportunity for the Sippy Downs singer – Star Maker has been an important launch pad for some of Australia’s biggest country music stars including Keith Urban, Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell and Gina Jeffreys. “Ever since I saw Kaylee Bell take out the title in 2013 on my first trip to Tamworth, I knew I wanted to be on that stage, whatever it took,” Ms Moore says. “This has been a dream of mine ever since and I feel so incredibly blessed to be a part of such a significant year for Toyota Star Maker.” Ms Moore was 23 when she took out Queensland’s Champions of Champions Female Vocalist of the Year 2013 and secured a scholarship to the 2014 CMAA Academy of Country Music. She then went on to win the
Gympie Muster Talent Search in 2014. She’s currently working on her debut EP, due to be released soon. It’s a five-track outing that will take the listener on a journey of heartbreak, self-resurrection and female empowerment. The title track, I Ain’t Your Girl No More, is a fearless introduction to the EP. Toyota Star Maker will be held on Sunday, January 20 in Australia’s country music capital, Tamworth. All 10 finalists will be judged on the night, and the winner will receive a prize package which includes the use of a new Toyota vehicle and a fuel card for 12 months, plus guaranteed performances at major festivals and events throughout Australia.

GET THE KIDS OFF THE COUCH
Mount Coolum and Mount Ngungun are both popular climbs for families, and the sense of achievement kids get when they reach the top is well worth the effort. Mount Ngungun trail is about 2.8 kilometres and it’s the harder of the two – give yourself about two hours to climb to the top from the car park on Fullertons Road and back again. Mount Coolum is a little easier (give yourself about an hour and a half ) though a reasonable level of fitness is also required to tackle it.

READER’S CORNER THE AGE OF LIGHT Author: Whitney Scharer Publisher: Picador RRP: $29.99 Reviewer: Jemma Pearson It’s 1929 and Lee Miller arrives in Paris to join the Bohemian set and pursue her dream of becoming an artist. Not long after arriving, established artist Man Ray
also made appearances with The Muppets, and The Wiggles and features on the Charlie’s Angels’ soundtrack, endearing him to music fans young and old. He is thrilled to be touring his adopted homeland (he became an Australian citizen in 2009) and can’t wait to celebrate his milestone birthday with audiences through high-energy concerts. Audiences can expect all his classic songs and more as the man once described as “one of the greatest pop voices of our time” takes music fans on a musical journey that features more than 20 international top 10 singles and five global top 10 albums. Mr Sayer seems to have an endless supply of energy – he is working just as solidly in his music career now as when he started and his music is reaching new audiences. He is also celebrating the UK release of his The Gold Collection. The album will be available exclusively to Australian audiences on the Just A Boy At 70 tour. Leo Sayer is appearing at Venue 114 on Saturday, February 16. Tickets are $83.65 per person. To book, visit scvenuesandevents.com.au or call 5413 1400 (phone charges do apply).

discovers her and she soon becomes his assistant. Man is an egotistical but charismatic force, and soon their personal and professional lives become entwined. As Lee tries to assert herself, Man shows his true colours. There have been so many fantastic debut novels released in the past year or so, and Whitney Scharer can now be added to the list. The Age of Light is storytelling at its best – gorgeously intricate and evocative, the prose sparkles on the page. It’s a gripping tale from start to finish. If you’re a fan of historical drama, grab a copy of this when it hits bookstores next month.

Chicken schnitzel is a favourite in many households. The Uber Schnitzel at The Bavarian is served golden-crumbed and topped with a pile of summery rocket, semi-dried tomatoes and Parmesan. Here’s how you can make it at home. INGREDIENTS • 1 chicken breast (approximately 250g), butterflied • 60g breadcrumbs • 1 tsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped • Salt & pepper, for seasoning • 40g plain flour • 1 egg • 1 tbsp milk • 2 tbsp vegetable oil • 1 generous handful of rocket, washed • 25g semi-dried tomatoes, sliced • 10ml red wine salad dressing (see below) • Extra salt, for seasoning • ¼ piece of lemon • 20g Parmesan cheese, grated
RED WINE SALAD DRESSING: • 3 tbsp olive oil • Red wine vinegar • ½ tsp dried oregano • 1 sprig fresh thyme, leaves removed and chopped • 2 leaves fresh basil, chopped • ½ clove garlic, chopped • salt & pepper, for seasoning
METHOD Butterfly the chicken breast. To do this, place chicken on a chopping board, put your hand flat on top of it and using a sharp knife, slice into one side of the breast, starting at the thickest end and working down to the thinnest end. Be careful not to cut all the way through. Open the breast out to resemble a butterfly. Cover with cling wrap and gently pummel with a meat mallet or rolling pin to create an even thickness. Combine breadcrumbs, parsley and pepper. Place flour on a plate. Whisk egg and milk together in a shallow bowl. Season chicken with salt, then coat in flour. Dip chicken in egg and milk mixture, then coat chicken in breadcrumbs. Heat oil in frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for four to five minutes on each side, or until golden. Drain on paper towel. To make the dressing, combine all ingredients. Mix rocket, semi-dried tomato and dressing and place on top of schnitzel. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan over the salad and serve with the lemon.

This week, the focus is firmly on friendships as you communicate about the things in life that really matter. But, Saturn pushes your perfectionist button, so resist the urge to criticise as you set impossibly high standards for yourself.
The sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto are all visiting your domestic zone, so it’s time to hone your multi-tasking skills as you cook, clean, craft, garden, decorate or entertain. Many Librans will combine work and family in creative ways in 2019.
If you are strident or sarcastic on Tuesday, then you could find yourself slap bang in the middle of a feisty argument. Friday is the most important day of the week, when the sun links up with Pluto, so strive to use your power in positive ways.

Prepare for a busy and buoyant week full of love, luck and fun, but avoid the tendency to overspend. Thrifty Saturn is still sauntering through your money zone, so 2019 is the year to replace short-term whims with long-term plans.
The sun and Pluto pair up in your sign, so you’ve got the power! Just make sure you use it wisely, with a view to the needs of others, not just your own. And, don’t let your tendency to control everything (and everyone) get out of control!
You’re in the mood to daydream, but be careful you don’t delude yourself about the true motives of a friend or acquaintance. Creative projects and spiritual pursuits are positive ways to express your imagination and tap into your intuitive side.
When it comes to friendships or finances, avoid making a rash decision that you later regret (especially on Tuesday). And, are you living in La-La Land – full of fabulous ideas and abstract Piscean plans, but short on practical application?

HMR PROJECTS PROMOTION
REEDS TAKE BOUTIQUE LUXURY LIVING TO THE NEXT LEVEL In four short years HMR Projects has established itself as the creator of luxury living and has become renowned for delivering quality dwellings across the Sunshine Coast.
t could be said that no development company better understands the Sunshine Coast lifestyle than HMR Projects. Established by long term resident Harry Reed and operated entirely by Reed family members, HMR Projects opened its doors at the start of 2014. However its genesis goes back to the late 1980s, when bricklayercum-developer Harry founded the highly

successful and award winning Reed Property Group (RPG). RPG and its construction division, RCQ Construction, have been responsible for some of the Coast’s most sought-after luxury developments including the eye-catching Maroochydore waterfront apartments Aurora, m1 and Platinum. Although Harry handed over the reins of RPG to his son Ken in 2007, and the
“HMR Projects has become renowned for creating quality boutique dwellings in highly desirable locations”
business has since been sold, four years ago he was lured out of retirement by his family to help establish HMR Projects. In those four short years HMR Projects has become renowned for creating quality boutique dwellings in highly desirable locations, closely connected to the heart of our vibrant local communities. Current releases include Latitude at Coolum Beach, Elevate on Buderim and the myweeklypreview.com.au

THE RANGE/HINTERLAND JESS LUTHJE – MALENY REALTY
PROPERTY PREDICTIONS With another year behind us and a new one ahead, My Property Preview catches up with real estate agents from across the region to find out their thoughts on how the market fared in their patch for 2018 and how they predict the market will perform in 2019. Compiled by: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane
The market was steady with consistent sales over all price brackets and wellpresented property sold quickly throughout 2018. The majority of our buyers continue to come from Brisbane. Our days on market remained at an average of 65, however many properties sold within a week and our median house price currently sits at $605,000. I see continued strong sales activity and limited stock on the market in 2019. There seems to be a real satisfaction with the area and people don’t want to leave in general, so we’re not seeing a lot of property come onto the market. As the Sunshine Coast continues to grow, I believe areas in the hinterland will become more desirable as people seek that peace and quiet while being easy driving distance of all the Coast has to offer. Advice for buyers: If buyers see a property they like, they should move quickly, the days of thinking about it for a week are over. Advice for sellers: Present your property well, price it right and start looking for the next one because you won’t be on the market long.
MOOLOOLABA/ MAROOCHYDORE PAUL ANGELL – FIRST NATIONAL
SOUTHERN COAST LUKE CARTER – HARCOURTS CALOUNDRA The southern end of the Sunshine Coast performed well during 2018. Although the volume of listings and sales has retracted to their lowest levels since 2008, prices have been solid. Pelican Waters, Moffat Beach, Wurtulla, Dicky Beach and Golden Beach had a flying start to the year, with new benchmarks in prices being set in these areas and a number of record prices being achieved. Days on market over 2018 definitely retracted and I feel this will continue through 2019. I feel the volume of stock and sales will definitely increase through 2019, as many property owners take advantage of growth and look to cash in. I feel 2019 will see a resurgence of southern buyers looking to invest and retire here and this will put pressure on stock, as many of these buyers have significant funds. Advice for buyers: Have confidence and move fast when you see a property that suits your needs. In 10 years we will look back and say, I wish I bought then. Advice for sellers: There has never been a more important time to ensure you are selecting an agent that has strong knowledge of the market.
Although buyer interest levels softened over the last quarter, overall we found the 2018 market to be a fairly positive one. We noticed a slowdown in investor enquiry, possible due to the increase in foreign buyer stamp duty, restriction in lending and caution in relation to negative gearing policy in 2019. Owneroccupier transactions continued to dominate the residential sales in our market. I believe the Sunshine Coast will continue to defy the southern capital trends in 2019, however I expect only a slight increase in prices in the residential sector. Advice for buyers: Regardless of the type of market, buyers should always do their research and ask the agent for historical data about a building or suburb you are interested in. Advice for sellers: If you are exiting the local market or downsizing, now is a great time to sell. If you are selling and buying back into the same market, then it probably doesn’t make much difference – pick a time that suits your current circumstances or position.

NAMBOUR JASON STOCK – RE/MAX
CENTRAL COAST LOREN WIMHURST – NEXT PROPERTY GROUP The year was really strong all in all, with rises in some of the areas and despite some slowing in the last month, we have seen consistent sales. We have seen across the board rises in the prices for waterfront, beachfronts, beachside and we have seen some good results on prestige acreages. We have noticed the range between $1 million and $1.5 million has been popular. What we’re finding is that we are seeing more local buyers appreciating the value of property prices in the region and they are the ones prepared to pay true market value. I feel that this momentum will continue into 2019, although I don’t feel we’ll have the price increase we’ve had for last year to 18 months. I predict we will see more properties coming onto the market. Advice for buyers: If you are looking at holding it for the long term, property will always look after you. Advice for sellers: You have one chance to make an impression when selling your property. Do it the best way you possibly can and you will get the right result.
Last year saw some immense buyer frustration, with demand outweighing supply. New record prices were achieved, numerous properties selling above list price, with multiple offers and short days on market. The Banking Royal Commission brought about some market disruption through the middle part of 2018 for the first-home buyers, but overall the market remained strong. This year looks set to offer an increase in stock and balanced demand from buyers will mean in order to get sold, sellers’ expectations will need to pull back into alignment with the ideas of buyers. A number of new land estates means current owners upgrading and also more opportunities for first-home buyers. Advice for buyers: Be ready with finance approvals, be educated on local market pricing and still be willing to act fast – as the good properties will still be selling inside the first few days on the market. Advice for sellers: Be smart. Choose an agent that understands marketing and with a proven track record in your area. Remember it is the process rather than the promise of a price that is the key to success.

NORTH COAST JOHN STAMP – BELLE PROPERTY
BUDERIM BEVAN HORSNELL – PRIME PROPERTY The property market in general across Buderim and the central Sunshine Coast has performed well on the back of tighter stock levels and high buyer numbers through 2018. These stats confirmed sellers were in the box seat when it came to negotiation, as buyer competition was high and available properties low. The year started well with average days on market being about half normal trend and the five-year median price index sitting around the 35 per cent growth mark. Advice for buyers: Buyers will start to see a gradual loosening of the market, with more properties becoming available in the traditional summer selling season. Be well advised as to your buying capacity, and if possible, arrange preapproval as soon as you start looking for a home. The financial institutions have tightened their lending criteria as a result of the Banking Royal Commission and this is providing headaches throughout the transaction for many buyers. Advice for sellers: Sellers remain in a great position with prices remaining high across the Coast, but they must not overestimate their property value.
Buyers are becoming price sensitive. They are discerning and have a wealth of information at their fingertips. A tightening of the lending criteria and very clear focus of funders towards principal places of residence purchases has created, to some extent, a two-speed market. Properties which are deemed to not represent good value are lingering for long periods of time as the market is no longer accelerating to meet the higher expectations, and well-priced properties are seeing huge competition. Advice to buyers: Educate yourself. Do not rely on second-hand, curated information. Always understand actual sale prices, don’t be led down the garden path by anyone quoting a list price as a sale result – always find out the price comparative properties actually sold and settled for by sourcing your own information online. Advice to sellers: Be open to feedback. Be clear with your messages, i.e. pricing, reason for selling, features of the home. Be careful of lengthy clauses and settlement periods in a changing market. Cash is king.

THE CITY OF COLOUR CONTINUES TO SHINE
he future looks bright for Stockland’s thriving $5-billion Aura community, with a host of exciting milestones set to be realised in 2019. The largest masterplanned community ever undertaken in Australia under single ownership is quickly taking shape as new residents move in every week and a raft of exciting community amenity comes to life. Hannah Madill, development manager at Stockland, says 2018 was a bumper year for the world-class community and the coming 12 months are set to be even busier. “Aura’s highly liveable and sustainable lifestyle, affordable housing options and quality amenities are proving to be a drawcard for homebuyers looking for a safe, family-friendly community to raise their families,” Ms Madill says. “Our first suburb of Baringa is now home to more than 2500 residents and we’ve celebrated a huge amount of milestones during the year, including the opening of our first school, our first sporting complex and the Baringa Skate Plaza and Civic Square. “Added to this has been the opening of a number of new parks and roads, we’ve
seen hundreds of new homes built and welcomed the first residents to the innovative High Line terrace homes.” The coming year will see the first residents moving into Aura Central and the opening of Stockland Baringa Shopping Centre, as well as Goodstart Early Learning Baringa, Baringa Community Centre, the Baringa State Primary School extension and the first businesses at Aura Business Park.
Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy a number of new neighbourhood parks and playgrounds and a new bridge will also be completed, providing access into Aura Central. “Aura Central will be the beating heart of our vibrant future city and will one day feature a bustling city centre, the extensive People’s Place parkland as well as a proposed urban university and sporting
facilities,” Ms Madill says. “We’re creating one of the most sustainable masterplanned communities in Australia and we’re looking forward to a fantastic year ahead as Aura continues to grow.” Land is now available at Aura starting from $175,000 for a 210-square-metre lot to $360,800 for a 756-square-metre lot. Over the next 30 years, Stockland will create more than 20,000 new homes across the 24-square kilometre site, a 200-kilometre network of cycleways and more than 700 hectares of conservation areas and parkland. To find out more, go to cityofcolour. com, call 1300 762 058 or visit the Aura Sales and Vision Centre at 1 Lukin Terrace, Baringa.

DUAL-LIVING TERRACE HOMES IN GREAT LOCATION
egatta Mews is a unique project that offers luxury freehold dual-living terrace homes in a sought-after location. With construction already underway, Devcon is leading the way with this exciting development. This waterfront development is only an 800-metre walk to a patrolled beach while also being surrounded by a variety of restaurants, parks, specialised retail and educational facilities. Situated only two kilometres from the new multibillion dollar world-class Kawana health precinct and Birtinya Town Centre, this area is primed for investment and growth incentives. This architecturally-designed boutique development is the first of its kind for the region, according to Devcon Property Group managing director Michael Kain. “Devcon is proud to be involved with this kind of innovation on the Sunshine Coast,” he says. “We have put a great deal of effort and research into producing a design that will meet future trends.” These unique properties provide a spacious, modern home and an auxiliary residence under the same roof for extended family or as an investment property.
“Devcon is proud to be involved with this kind of innovation on the Sunshine Coast” Income from the auxiliary property can be used to reduce any principal loan while enabling the family to keep their family legacy in property as an asset class. Regatta Mews provides a unique investment opportunity. Devcon Property Management team leader Sylvia Huisman says, “based on market evidence and feedback from tenants
in the area, there is a demand for this type and quality of product that isn’t being met.” Dual-living designs present the modern investor with a cutting edge and economical solution offering ongoing opportunities with two separate incomes on one titled property. This style of investment has proven to be successful in producing high yields and capital growth. With more than 65 per cent of the
development already under contract, Regatta Mews has been well received by locals and investors alike. Devcon is setting the benchmark with luxury finishes combined with dual-living benefits in a convenient location. Since 1993, Devcon has been delivering outstanding projects and in 2017, BRW Financial Review named Devcon as the thirteenth fastest-growing company in Australia.

INCREDIBLE LAND UP FOR GRABS
rays Farm was first purchased in 1929 by Mr John Gray from Glasgow, who built a timber cottage in 1946. The cottage is still standing but in poor condition. The land size, location and environment is unique. About 40 per cent is cleared and operating as a cattle farm and the remainder offers a large amount of millable timber, a creek and three dams. Zoned rural, there is bitumen road within 900 metres of the property. It offers great potential – farming, a campground, holiday cabins, animal husbandry, cropping, a winery – your imagination is the only limit.

Well, it’s time for New Year’s resolutions. I have a friend who claims he is really good at them. He has given up smoking heaps of times. Not sure if there are any waves around, but remember to be kind to our guests. A few sea snakes have been spotted recently, so if you see them, give them space. They are reportedly harmless on the beach and easy to pick up. Set them free! Joke: You go into the toilet Australian and leave Australian. What are you when you are in there? European!
