uying your first home is a dream for many people. A place to call your own and to share with loved ones. Admittedly it can be a little daunting signing that dotted line on your first house contract, but the reward is worth the hard work. To be able to own your own piece of Sunshine Coast land is the icing on the cake. Beautiful beaches, great schools, thriving business and economy – it is the perfect place to invest, which is why more and more people choose to do so. For many, building a home from the ground up is exciting, and with new, sustainable development popping up all around the region, there is ample opportunity. This week, journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane ditched her heels for work boots and headed out to find out more about housing construction. Buyer expectation has changed and the good news is that there is plenty of land opening up to make way for housing. You can read the story on page 10. From property to pop, this week we chat with musician Sahara Beck, who graces our cover. The Sunshine Coast talent has been gaining welcome attention and, as she steps up as a finalist in the prestigious Queensland Music Awards, we have one piece of advice – she is one to watch. Good luck Sahara, the MWP team will be cheering you on! We hope you enjoy this week’s edition. It’s jam-packed with local news, beauty, fashion and faces.

Your family includes? My husband, two stepsons and our two doggos. First car? Hyundai Getz. Favourite book? I found Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari fascinating. If your life was a book, what would be the title? Manifest. What are you reading now? Nothing at the moment actually. Moving house is crazy. Favourite song and why? Dancing Queen by ABBA is my jam. What are you watching right now, would you recommend it, and why? The stars and the night sky most nights. I’d definitely recommend that.

Ashley Freeman-Rudd

yogi

BIO Ashley Freeman-Rudd is a personal trainer and yoga teacher with a large Instagram following. She recently moved to the Sunshine Coast with her husband, acclaimed musician Xavier Rudd. They spend a lot of time exploring the beautiful natural environment of their new home and working in their organic veggie garden. Ms Freeman-Rudd regularly travels around the country holding yoga and fitness workshops.

Best day in your life and why? So many beautiful things happen in life which are wonderful for their own reasons. I couldn’t choose one day. Each day I’m alive, healthy and living in the present is a pretty awesome day. So maybe today. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? I really believe that every moment has the power to change everything, and our present is just a sum total of every past decision. Your greatest regret? Absolutely no regrets. Every single moment has led me to where I am today. What achievement are you most proud of? Following my passions and building a life and career around what I love.

“We were always encouraged to follow our hearts and our dreams”

When was the last time you played sport and what was it? I played in a mixed AFL 9s competition two years ago which was fun. Otherwise I’m always playing different backyard games with my family. Best advice you’ve been given? My parents told my sister and I repeatedly that we could achieve anything in our lives with a bit of hard work. We were always encouraged to follow our hearts and our dreams. For that I am so grateful. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? I couldn’t choose between the beaches, national parks and hinterlands! I adore it all. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? So far I can’t think of anything! Three months in and loving it.

You are happiest when? I’m outdoors with my family and friends What frustrates you the most? Seeing people mistreat others.

How do you deal with your frustrations? I don’t often get frustrated. I am really particular with how I spend my time and energy. If a person or situation isn’t right for me, I just move on.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? I’d give her a hug and tell her just to keep following her heart. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? I’d bring my mum’s parents back for her, and then probably invite Elon Musk because he is fascinating. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? Invest some, save some, donate some and share some. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee in the morning, herbal teas into the afternoons and night time. NRL or AFL? I was born into an NRL family, and then married into AFL lovers. So I guess I’m on the fence!

FAST FACTS

1. GAME-CHANGING PROJECTS

TOP 7

From the new Maroochydore CBD to the airport expansion, proposed light rail system and completed Sunshine Coast University Hospital, the region is undergoing an unprecedented time of growth with billions of private and government dollars being invested.

Our beautiful region has been named one of the world’s Top7 Intelligent Communities, sharing the honour with communities from Canada, America and Taiwan. The title recognises communities that exemplify best practice in workforce development, broadband development and use, innovation, digital inclusion, sustainability and advocacy.

2. EMPLOYMENT The Coast is the 10th fastest growing region in Australia for employment. There have been more than 20,000 jobs added to the region in the past five years. Mayor Mark Jamieson says ongoing investment in talent and skills is crucial to preparing the region’s workforce with the knowledge and experience they need to succeed in a global marketplace. “From our Robocoast national robotics champions, to Mountain Creek High’s Coding and Innovation Hub teacher training, to Generation Innovation youth startup programs and the Mayor’s Telstra Innovation Awards, we are all supporting our young people to prepare for the jobs of the future,” he says.

The Sunshine Coast, which was the only Australian city awarded the title, is now a contender for the Intelligent Community of the Year award, which will be announced in New York in June. Here are seven reasons we think the Coast is in the Top7!

4. ENVIRONMENT AND LIVEABILITY Sunshine Coast Council’s Environment and Liveability Strategy sets the direction for a healthy environment. The aim is to maintain the natural area, respond to population growth, build resilience against the impacts of climate change and create liveable spaces. FAST FACTS: 22 tonnes of marine debris and litter have been removed from our waterways; 44 hectares of land have been secured for sport and recreation and more than 100,000 trees have been planted as part of the council’s catchment rehabilitation program.

3. ECONOMY The Sunshine Coast’s $14-billion economy is one of the largest regional economies in the country. It has an annual average growth rate of four per cent per year over the past 15 years.

5. CREATIVITY In 2018 the council endorsed the region’s first arts plan, which aims to stimulate the local arts sector, foster the creative community, identify opportunities for investment and grow participation in the arts. There is no shortage of creative and artistic events, ranging from the Caloundra Music Festival to the Horizon Festival and the nationally-recognised Sunshine Coast Art Prize.

6. INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY Like all growing regions, the community and business focus on innovation and tech is huge. Perhaps the biggest project to emerge in recent times is the submarine cable, which is expected to deliver up to 864 new jobs and stimulate $927 million in new investment in Queensland. The 550-kilometre undersea fibre-optic cable will connect the Sunshine Coast to the 9600-kilometre Japan-Guam-Australia (JGA-South) submarine cable, delivering faster connection to 1.5 billion people who are connected to the network.

7. COMMUNITY From health and wellbeing programs to sports club development and support of volunteer programs, the Sunshine Coast council encourages community interaction and engagement. There is no denying that residents pride themselves on community spirit and fostering relationships.

FEATURE STORY

BUILDING A FUTURE FOR THE COAST

As land opens up for development and the size of blocks decreases on the Sunshine Coast, buyer expectations have changed. Developers are hearing the call of thousands of buyers who want brand-new dwellings in all shapes and sizes. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“The council uses the strength of the residential building approvals as a litmus test for the overall health of the economy”

Harmony will deliver more than 4800 homes in coming years

B

uilding a dream home on the Sunshine Coast has become a popular option for people on all levels of the property ladder, with the region gearing up for a bumper year in residential dwelling construction. The Sunshine Coast Council’s profile id data shows there were 2428 residential buildings approved to be built in the first half of the 2018-19 financial year and if the second half is just as productive, the region will eclipse the total 4140 dwellings constructed last year by several hundred. The council uses the strength of the residential building approvals as a litmus test for the overall health of the economy as it reflects interest rates, availability of mortgage funds, government spending, and business investment. It appears the recommendations of the Sunshine Coast Affordable Living Strategy 2010-2020, which was released in 2011, are coming to fruition. The council report recommended a reduction in detached dwellings from 76 per cent to 53 per cent of the housing stock by 2031, an increase in semi-detached dwellings, such as townhouses or duplexes, from 10 per cent to 26 per cent and an increase in units from 12 per cent to 20 per cent in the same time, with a “consolidation of urban form in both greenfield and infill developments”. Since the report was released, infill developments like Sunshine Cove in Maroochydore, Bokarina Beach near the Kawana health precinct and greenfield sites

at Aura in Caloundra South, and Harmony at Palmview, have opened up land opportunities for tens of thousands of new homes to be built. In fact, the Coast’s two greenfield sites are the largest in Queensland. Plantation Homes regional sales operations manager Melissa Wolfe says there is a great variety of land choices on the Coast, with everything from smaller acreage blocks through to “community-focused estates”. Land that’s less than 400 square metres is now much more popular with buyers, and

dream is still to own a home, with the needs and requirements of family living not really changing in terms of internal requirements,” she says. “There is still strong demand for four bedrooms, and multiple living spaces, but as lifestyles evolve, the requirement to have a larger backyard has changed. “In recent times we have seen a shift in our customer’s needs with markets and affordability changing. It is important to not rule out multi-generational living. This could be as simple as having a theatre option with

“There are still buyers out there who dream of the white picket fence, but there is certainly a shift in buyer mentality” Anthony Demiris

developers have a strong focus on the reduction of the housing land footprint in exchange for the provision of “walkable cities” with access to larger communal leisure facilities such as parks, walkways and bike paths. This is also providing an affordable entry point into the market for first-home buyers. Ms Wolfe says Plantation Homes’ figures indicate more than one third of its customers are first-home buyers.“The Queensland

ensuite, which can easily be converted to a guest bedroom on the ground floor. “Young adults are staying home longer due to affordability and needing to save for a deposit, so homes are now evolving to accommodate adult children, for instance.” While some might argue that young first-home buyers have unrealistic expectations of what they should buy, Ms Wolfe says customers are more open to the idea of purchasing only what they require.

“Even though we are seeing smaller home designs, they have adapted to use spaces for multiple reasons,” she says. Among the most popular compact living options taking hold across the Coast are terrace homes. Brad Thompson of Thompson Sustainable Homes believes they are highly attractive to millennials in particular. “Terrace homes are extremely popular with millennials because they’re freehold houses and the owners aren’t bound to body corporate fees or strata, as they might be with apartments – this is something they can wholly and solely own,” he says. “Our terrace homes can have up to four bedrooms, so buyers are not forced to relocate if they decide to start a family – they can comfortably live there for years to come.” He says Thompson’s terrace homes are designed to “show off” the Sunshine Coast lifestyle, which AVID Group development manager Anthony Demiris says is one of the biggest factors buyers consider when selecting their ideal parcel of land. Harmony is on track to deliver more than 4800 homes over 234.3 hectares in the coming years. More than 85 per cent of the residents are owner-occupiers, and Mr Demiris says the relaxed coastal lifestyle, affordable housing options and the booming number of employment opportunities are influencing people to either make a sea change or stay on the Coast. More than 900 blocks have been sold in the estate in the past two years, with a number of land releases having to be myweeklypreview.com.au

Sunshine Cove

Thompson Sustainable Homes

Plantation Homes fast-tracked in order to keep up with the demand. Mr Demiris has seen a diverse mix of buyers, ranging from first, second and even third home buyers to young families and downsizers. “We have seen a high number of retirees who still have extremely active lifestyles and aren’t quite ready for a retirement community,” he says. “There are still buyers out there who dream of having the white picket fence, but there is certainly a shift in buyer mentality to smaller, more easily maintained living options that are close to everything they need.” A quick Google of land sales on the Sunshine Coast reveals more than 590 options, and it’s hard to imagine a time when land was hard to come by. But when Sunshine Cove was first unveiled in 2004, it was rare to see an in-fill development parcel so close to an established CBD. “Sunshine Cove has a broad appeal to many buyers, be it home owners or investors,” says Sunshine Cove Realty

consultant Penny Service. “However, a very high proportion of owners are owneroccupiers – people are living the Sunshine Coast lifestyle that other people only dream about. As a community it works, and its strength lies in its varied diversity. “We have one final parcel of residential land to develop, which is the land across the water, accessible by the bridge off Cheyenne Way. ” Sunshine Cove covers 106 hectares, with more than half of that allocated to residential allotments that will eventually house around 6000 residents. The rest is a mix of lakes, parklands, commercial and mixed use. Ms Service says while lifestyle remains a core factor for owner-occupiers when seeking land to build on, investors continue to be drawn to the region due to the number of large-scale infrastructure projects, including the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion, the installation of the submarine broadband cable, the development of the Maroochydore CBD and the magnetism of

the new Sunshine Coast Health Precinct. Those seeking beachfront land, which is as rare as hen’s teeth in the region, will need to be quick off the mark, with just two residential lots remaining of the total 160 home sites, 130 terrace homes and up to 800 beachside apartments at Bokarina Beach. Stockland regional manager Adrian Allen says all lots in the first land releases of Bokarina Beach and Aura were available exclusively to customers who had preregistered their interest and since then, land releases have been continually fast-tracked in both communities to meet demand. “While demand will always be strong from families looking for larger home sites with a big backyard, a wide range of home buyers are increasingly seeking housing options that are appropriate to their changing needs,” he says. “Aura offers everything from low-maintenance loft-style terraces to home sites over 600 square metres.” Mr Allen says the majority of home sites in Aura’s first suburb, Baringa, have been sold and buyers are now clamouring to secure land in Aura Central, which will be the future heart of Aura and will feature 10,000 homes. Buyers are also becoming more selective as longevity is a key consideration for people on all levels of the property ladder. Recent Roy Morgan research found 41 per cent of Australians have not changed their home address in more than a decade and 17 per cent hold onto their properties for between five and 10 years. While demand still has the upper hand on the supply, prices are remaining at a level that makes buying your own slice of Sunshine Coast paradise a reality for many.

COMMON QUESTIONS WHEN BUYING OFF THE PLAN Buying ‘off the plan’ in a new community can be an exciting experience. Purchasing off the plan simply means you’re buying a block that is either still under construction or where work has not yet commenced. Stockland’s David Laner says off-the-plan buyers have the opportunity to save a little extra money before their block is settled and lock in land at “today’s prices” while being afforded time to plan the details of a home they would like to build on top. Here, Mr Laner responds to the five most commonly asked questions from buyers. 1. What expert advice should I seek when buying the block? Like any property purchase, attention to detail is essential. Before you sign a contract, seek independent legal and financial advice. A solicitor or conveyancer will support you throughout the process and carry out the settlement on your behalf. 2. Do I have to pay the full amount for the block upfront? You will only need to pay a deposit on signing a contract, with the balance of the cost not payable until settlement. 3. How long will I have to wait for the block to be completed? Typically, this can take anywhere from three months to 18 months, depending on which community you are buying in and which land stage within that community. 4. Can I see the block? It may not be possible to get all the way to your block if it’s in a construction zone. Ask a sales professional to take you as close as possible and show you similar blocks and completed homes. 5. How do I know what sort of design I can place on the block? The draft plan of the subdivision will give you an indication of the size, shape and orientation of your home site. Buying off the plan means the variety of blocks is greater as you have first choice when a new stage of land is released.

FANCY A FREE DAY OUT FOR THE FAMILY?

PAV STRIKES A CHORD WITH LOCAL YOUTH Fifteen years ago, TAFE Queensland Youth and Community Work Teacher Pav Cosmatos swapped a chef’s apron for a rewarding career helping the Coast’s most vulnerable youth achieve their full potential. Now he’s using his knowledge and experience to ensure the next generation of youth workers are there to meet Australia’s growing demands. Pav teaches the Diploma of Youth Work at TAFE Queensland’s Mooloolaba campus, educating his students on how to deal with complex trauma. He also provides the opportunity for his students to get hands-on with a ‘community classroom’, partnering with local schools or community centres so students can apply what they’ve learned in a real setting. But the key

lessons Pav says his students learn are often about themselves. “I’ve seen so many people turn their lives around in this course and go from lacking confidence to being leaders,” Pav said.

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation held the Grand Opening of Daniel House in Palmwoods last Friday. Child Safety Minister Di Farmer joined Bruce and Denise Morcombe to officially open Daniel House in front of 150 invited guests. Daniel House is now the Foundation’s National Office and includes the Walk Tall Program, which offers free counselling services for child survivors of crime. Daniel House will continue to deliver its Keeping Kids Safe programs and resources and coordinate Australia’s Largest National Day of Action on child safety awareness – Day for Daniel.

I’VE SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE TURN THEIR LIVES AROUND IN THIS COURSE AND GO FROM LACKING CONFIDENCE TO BEING LEADERS.

“Youth work can be a highly rewarding career for people from a diverse range of backgrounds, ages, cultures and genders. “It’s about providing opportunities for young people and advocating for them in society with those soft skills, and teaching youth work is much the same. You are providing a place for people to come to so they can prosper.” If you’re empathetic and patient, and want to help young people overcome the challenges life has thrown at them, a career in youth work could be your calling.

Enrol today and see where TAFE can take you.

TAKING IT TO THE LIMIT Local mum Kirsty Levy is always up for a challenge, and her next one, an endurance race in New Zealand, is a big one. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

K

irsty Levy has a strong motto she applies to life – if your next goal doesn’t scare you, you aren’t aiming high enough. So it goes without saying that the Buderim mum’s latest goal – to conquer the Alps 2 Ocean Ultra stage race in New Zealand – is both exciting and terrifying. Ms Levy will line up with 135 participants at the base of Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain, and will cover 330 kilometres over seven consecutive days carrying a 16-kilogram backpack that will contain her week’s supply of food as well as all the sleeping gear and equipment necessary to complete the event. The run will finish in the small harbour of Oamaru, located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. “This will be my biggest run challenge that tests my physical and mental ability to date,” she says. Ms Levy is no stranger to endurance challenges, having assisted her trainer Jamie Milne with his Many Miles for Mary fundraising events as a support runner and chief mapper. It has inspired her to up the ante each time she laces up her shoes. “I was fortunate enough to represent

Australia in the Obstacle Course Racing short course World Championships in 2017, and the 24-hour Enduro World Championships in 2018 where I placed fourth, missing out on the podium by just two minutes,” she says. “This year after New Zealand, I will

represent Australia again at the 24-Hour Enduro OCRWC with my sights set on the podium and again in October to compete in a 200-kilometre Obstacle Course World Championship, Taurus 200 here in Queensland.” As part of her latest challenge, Ms Levy is fundraising for and hopes to raise at least $10,000 for the MND and Me Foundation this year. The foundation was established by her close friend Scott ‘Sully’ Sullivan, who sadly lost his battle with motor neurone disease in 2014. Inspired by Mr Sullivan’s journey and her own brush with death in childbirth to become active and raise awareness and money, Ms Levy has become a source of inspiration for her 14-year-old son Sam, who is her biggest supporter. Ms Levy was 34 weeks pregnant with Sam when she developed HELLP Syndrome, commonly referred to as the next step up from pre-eclampsia. She woke up barely able to breathe and was diagnosed with a punctured lung. Tests found her liver had began to malfunction and her blood platelet levels were dropping rapidly. “I had an emergency caesarean and I have never been more relieved to hear my

son cry after he was born, it meant that his little lungs were okay. Within six weeks of his birth, my liver function had returned to normal. I was really lucky they caught it early as so many people suffer from permanent injuries.” Despite never having trained in freezing temperatures or at altitude during her comprehensive training schedule, which began in August last year, Ms Levy says she will take heart in knowing she will have an ally in the solo race – her friend and fellow competitor Ali Fox, who lost her grandfather to MND. “We will never give up fighting for those who can’t,” Ms Levy says. “This will also be an added challenge to my day-to-day commitments of life as a full-time working single mum using my gift of movement and showing mums around the world that dreams and goals are possible with hard work and dedication.”

If you would like to show your support for Kirsty, you can donate to the MND Foundation through give.everyday hero.com/au/alps-2-ocean-4-mndfoxandunicorn.

BUSINESS & FINANCE growth was stalling, has since led the US Federal Reserve to dial back its rhetoric around future rate hikes, putting less pressure on Australia to follow suit; • China’s slower economic growth has been an influence, while domestically, weak consumer and business sentiment, falling house prices and low credit growth have weighed on our outlook; and • The RBA’s language has now shifted from one where “you could expect the next move in interest rates to be up” to “the probabilities appear to be more balanced”. In Friday’s Statement of Monetary Policy release, the RBA formally downgraded its growth forecasts for Australia from 3.25 per cent to three per cent in 2019, and from three per cent to 2.75 per cent in 2020. This is still higher than our economists’ projections of 2.6 per cent in 2019 and 2.7 per cent in 2020. Our base case is for interest rates to stay on hold for the rest of this year, but we now see more risk that the next move is down rather than up. We think one of the key reasons rates have not been lowered yet is because of the resiliency in the labour market to date. The unemployment rate of five per cent is the lowest in more than seven years. The RBA’s indicators suggests capacity could tighten, and it is hoped this would translate into an improvement in wage inflation and income growth, therefore making any mild and temporary softening in housing conditions manageable. Much of the decision therefore hinges on the state of the labour market, where the RBA is “monitoring developments” closely. If employment starts to falter at the same time as housing and consumer sentiment is poor, then it would be increasingly difficult for the RBA to stay on hold.

Darryl Watt, Ord Minnett Buderim.

RBA REVIVES THE POSSIBILITY OF A RATE CUT

T

he RBA chose to keep rates on hold recently, but downgraded its growth outlook and opened up the possibility of an interest rate cut. A rate cut would be influential for equity-market multiples, equity preferences and the Australian currency. At its first meeting of the year, the RBA maintained the official cash rate at 1.5 per cent. This takes the period rates have been steady to 27 meetings – a new record. Consensus expectations were for no change at this meeting, but the past few weeks have seen a marked shift in expectations on where rates would go this year. Increasingly, forecasters are entertaining the idea that the next move in rates will be down rather than up. In November last year, pricing in interest rate markets were factoring in a 10bps increase in interest rates by the end of 2019, or around 40 per cent probability of a 25bps rate rise. However, the outlook has since shifted considerably, with pricing at one point widening to an 18bps cut by year-end, or around 70 per cent probability of a 25bps cut. Following this week’s speech by RBA governor Philip Lowe, market pricing has stretched even further, putting an 88 per cent probability on a rate cut by December.

BANDING TOGETHER FOR BLOOMHILL His own cancer diagnosis has propelled Allan Pease to help local organisation Bloomhill Cancer Care. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Allan Pease, Scott Juniper from Cube Developments, Chris Franck from Bloomhill & Sheldon Busch from McGrath Estate Agents are working together for the charity

A

llan Pease describes himself as a “walking dead man”, having been diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer 21 years ago at the age of 47. But the Sunshine Coast resident, who is known as Mr Body Language, says he decided to focus on clean eating, meditation and replacing the diagnosis of a three-year life expectancy with his own that has seen him continue to live a vibrant and fulfilling life. “They’ve given me three years a couple of times, statistically that’s the average of the 100 people of my age who have my condition, but my minimal acceptable date is in 2040 because that’s when I will be 90. On August 15, 2040 at 4pm I will sit down and regroup and say, ‘what am I doing next?’.” Speaking exclusively to My Weekly Preview just days after his return from three months travelling to 16 different countries, Mr Pease says he was devastated to read about Bloomhill Cancer Care’s pleas for funding assistance to allow it to continue offering nursing services. Mr Pease and Olympic athlete Raelene Boyle have been Bloomhill ambassadors for

a number of years and Mr Pease says the organisation bridges so many gaps for patients by providing holistic care. “When you go to hospital, there are only three basic approaches to cancer – chemotherapy, radiation and surgery,” he says. “After that, there’s nothing more they do for you and people leave in a state of terrible distress, I’ve been there myself. “Those who have nowhere to go and no one to talk to can often find support groups, but often they only meet once a month and talk about issues and have speakers. A place like Bloomhill offers a complete follow-up to get [the patients’] mental health right, to get their goal setting right and to empower them with the skills to help them to live longer with a whole range of complementary therapies.” Mr Pease says he knows Bloomhill is “always running on a shoestring” but with the Buderim organisation’s cancer care nurses working with as many as 250 patients each at a time, the self-funded operation can no longer keep up with the increase in demand. He says the cost of running the organisation is increasing dramatically.

“It’s tough going. If they don’t get the funding they need, it will be such a disappointment,” he says. “They do a fabulous job with the help of a lot of volunteers and it’s a necessary service for people to be able to get past cancer or to learn how to manage the cancer they have. If you don’t have ‘the Bloomhills’ looking after these people, the pressure will pile up on the hospital system and the $250,000 they are asking for [from the State Government] is not a lot of money for the state budget, but the cost to families is far more dramatic.” Despite pleas for financial assistance, the state and federal governments have not come to the party and although community support has been overwhelming, Mr Pease says more is needed. He knows first hand how important care is for patients. Earlier this month he hosted a seminar to 800 people in Iran on how to survive cancer and live a positive life. “Because of the sanctions there, some people in that room will die through lack of treatments and, hopefully, many will survive because of the seminar,” he says. “These patients have unfortunately been described as ‘collateral damage’ as a result of sanctions. They don’t have access to the drugs to treat their cancer and as a result, the death rates are pretty high.” The seminar was sponsored by the Iranian hospitals and cancer patients could attend free of charge. Mr Pease says this was the third annual seminar he has conducted in Iran and more than 4000 people turned up to the inaugural event. “They had never seen anything like [the seminar] before, which is all about adjusting your diet and lifestyle – the Bloomhill approach fits under this category – and a lot of them thought it was going to be a healing,” he says. “It was really heart-wrenching to see so many cancer sufferers in those conditions there, but you’ve got to give people hope and get them to understand they can survive these things and they can do it with a good quality of life. It really brings home how fortunate we

are in Australia to have the likes of Bloomhill.” Mr Pease says cancer sufferers often want to put the experience behind them and feel uneasy sharing their journey with others. “Barb and I decided when I was diagnosed that we would make it a public thing and reveal it to bring awareness to it and help people in similar situations,” he says.

“If they don’t get the funding they need, it will be such a disappointment”

DIGGING DEEP The local community continues to answer the call for help from Bloomhill. Mr Pease has joined forces with Cube Developments and McGrath Estate Agents to pledge $5000 to Bloomhill. McGrath Estate Agents’ Sheldon Busch says the organisation’s community giveback scheme has been successful in supporting organisations like Bloomhill. “It will be awesome to give that amount of money to an organisation that does so much for so many in our community,” he says.

MY OPINION

FRIENDSHIP IS FREE

MAN VS MOUNTAIN

Sami Muirhead loves the idea of having friendship chairs at school, a place where children can sit when they’re feeling left out.

Richard O’Leary is spurred on by the theme song from Rocky as he scales Mount Tibrogargan on a pristine Sunny Coast Sunday.

T

hanks to the legacy of a little boy, thousands of students have been able to find a friend when they have been feeling alone. Joshua Dawes was just six years old when he died from a freak accident after a golf buggy he was riding in hit a gutter and the little boy hit his head. That was 10 years ago. Joshua’s dad, Paul, describes his vivacious son as being known “pretty much universally as the Lego king with family and friends”. “He made the most amazing things and his bedroom is still all about Lego,” says the dad of three boys. “We still buy him Christmas and birthday presents and they are invariably Lego.” When they lost their son, Paul and his wife, Diane, commissioned a friendship chair to be carved out of a massive blackbutt log. The functional piece of art sits near Joshua’s classroom overlooking a play area at his former school, Sunshine Coast Grammar. It is hand-carved into a giant piece of Lego and it is a lasting tribute. It is surrounded by student art and peaceful trees. There is the most magical and serene feeling around the area. Mrs Genevieve Hudson is the Dean of Prep–2 at Sunshine Coast Grammar School and says, “The purpose of the chair is a place where children can go if they are feeling lonely or are separated from their friends in

the playground. It is in easy view of most of the students while at play. Teachers and students usually notice very quickly if someone is sitting there and it doesn’t take long before the child on the seat is included in play with new or old friends. Every single child knows if you are feeling alone you go and sit on that chair and someone will play with you,” Mrs Hudson says. And it works. The chair is legendary with every student at the school. Who hasn’t had a day at school where they have felt a bit left out? Children grasp the concept of the chair quickly and accept its rules with the purity and instant acceptance only a child is capable of. There are days I would like a friendship chair at social functions or at awkward parties. What a beautiful way to cut out all the rubbish we get carried away with and focus on kindness and humanity. “I think it is a lovely thing that the chair is used by parents and children alike to share the message of friendship,” Paul says. “Something that gets lost in this crazy world we now all share.” To mark one decade since Joshua’s death, the chair is about to undergo a slight restoration. And perhaps the most beautiful and saddest part of all is the fact inside the friendship chair there is a piece of his little boy’s Lego he was playing with when he was killed. It is a Batman Lego car. Thanks Joshua and your family for showing the path to every child who is feeling lost.

I’d just arrived at the car park for my Mount Tibrogargan odyssey when the theme music to Rocky kicked-in on the radio. If it was good enough for the Italian Stallion it would be good enough for me. I’d started to doubt my mission – the signs had not been good. The guy I was supposed to be walking with had cancelled the night before, although I’d only seen his text message as I drove out of my driveway. It was only 5am, but I was awake and bed was not an option. We were supposed to climb Mount Beerwah, but when he cancelled I decided to double down and go for glory. I had climbed it once before with my eldest son, but I had never taken it on by myself, and I was a little worried when the GPS took me to a remote car park. I knew there was an easier way to get to the base of Tibrogargan, but after a couple of failed attempts to find it, I returned to the original spot. It was a glorious Sunshine Coast Sunday and I couldn’t wait to start. Sculling my water, I set off into an archway of trees which canopied the beginning of the walk into the Glass House Mountains National Park. After 20 minutes and one wrong turn, I arrived at the base of the mountain. It was

I

much steeper than I’d remembered. Was a walk not enough on this glorious day? What would Rocky do? Face to face, out in the heat Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry… So up I went. I saw a couple of climbers making their way down, and also came across a young guy who was on his second ascent for the morning. “Better than the gym,” he said. “Show off,” I said, in my head. I don’t know whether the second trip

“The only sensation was the wind against my skin, and the roar of it in my ears”

slowed him down a bit, or he was wary of trailing too close to a 40-something bloke – a falling rock is one thing, a plummeting middle-aged man quite an another – but when I reached the top I was all alone. I couldn’t see or hear anybody. The only sensation was the wind against my skin, and the roar of it in my ears. Risin’ up, straight to the top Had the guts, got the glory.

SHINING BRIGHT Local singer-songwriter Sahara Beck’s star continues to rise. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

S

ahara Beck was just 13 years old when she dazzled Australian musician Harii Bandhu by joining him to sing on her dad’s birthday. Just a year later, she was working on her debut album, Volume, which was released in 2011 when she was just 15 years old. Fast forward eight years and the talented singer-songwriter, who grew up in Peregian Beach, has two Queensland Music Award (QMA) wins under her belt with the potential to double that number when the 2019 awards night is held on March 19 at Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre. Ms Beck was recently announced as a finalist in both the regional and singersongwriter categories for her latest single Here We Go Again. A panel of more than 70 judges from across the country selected a diverse group of finalists featuring emerging and established songwriters. Other Coast artists in the running for QMA awards across a

range of categories include Bobby Alu, Emma Beau, Elixir, Katie Noonan, Ayla and Anna & Jordan. Ms Beck says she is “in amazing company”. “It felt really great to get the recognition for a song that I care so much about and put so much of myself into,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “I’m absolutely thrilled to have been nominated, especially alongside such incredible female songwriters and musicians.” Although she is now based in Brisbane, Ms Beck says the supportive musical community she grew up with on the Coast was instrumental in the development of her performance and songwriting “from the very early days”. “I’ve always loved watching people perform and music has always been a part of my life. There have been many significant musical moments and experiences for me over the years, even just as an audience

member where it really just all made total sense to me, the desire to express and engage,” she says. “To be honest it’s something that I realised I always wanted to try and have just become so lost in it I never want to stop. I love it.” Ms Beck says she will never forget putting together an eight-piece band to perform her Panacea album at Bluesfest in 2016. “Getting to take my friends with me to perform my songs that I had put so much of myself into, for an audience that was so open, loving and ready to get into what we had for them… at one of my favourite festivals, that was a favourite for sure,” she says. “I’ve been working very hard writing and recording over the last 12 months. I spent three weeks in December recording in LA with Tony Buchen, so there are definite plans for some more new music to be released very soon. It’s a nervous and exciting feeling to share what I’ve been making since my last record. But I’m very proud of what I’ve created.” Ms Beck says she is looking forward to seeing feature performances by Amy Shark, who is also a fellow regional award finalist, DZ Deathrays, Clea, Emma Beau and Tokyo Twilight at the QMA event. A limited number of tickets are available for music enthusiasts to attend the QMAs. Visit qldmusicawards.oztix.com.au.

BRAISED LAMB SHOULDER WITH MASH Serves six

INGREDIENTS Braised lamb • 1.5kg lamb shoulder, bone in, scored with a sharp knife • 2 tbsp coconut oil • sea salt and ground black pepper • 2 onions, finely chopped • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped • 2 carrots, diced • 2 tsp finely chopped rosemary leaves • 1 tbsp ground cumin • 500ml (2 cups) beef bone broth or

water, plus more if needed • 400g whole peeled tomatoes • Chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves Parsnip and cauliflower mash • 1 garlic bulb • 80ml olive oil, plus extra to serve • 5 parsnips, peeled, cores removed • 1 head of cauliflower (about 1kg), broken into florets • 2 tsp lemon juice • sea salt and ground black pepper

BRAISED LAMB METHOD Preheat the oven to 140°C (120°C fan-forced). Coat the lamb with a tablespoon of the coconut oil, then rub evenly with salt and pepper. Heat ½ tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large flameproof casserole dish over medium-high heat. Seal the lamb until well browned. Remove the lamb and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium, add the remaining coconut oil to the dish, then add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for five to eight minutes until softened. Add the garlic, carrot and rosemary and cook for five minutes, or until slightly softened. Stir in the cumin and cook for one minute. Pour in the broth and tomatoes and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper. Return the lamb shoulder to the dish and press down to submerge in the liquid, adding more broth or water if needed. Cover the dish with a tight-fitting lid, or at least two layers of foil so no steam can escape. Transfer to the oven to braise for five-and-ahalf to six hours until the meat pulls away easily from the bone. Carefully remove the lamb from the dish, cover with foil and set aside to rest. Place the dish over medium heat, bring the juices to a simmer and reduce for 12 to 15 minutes, or until it reaches a sauce consistency. Return the lamb to the

dish and simmer for a further five minutes, or until it is heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide the lamb among serving plates, add a couple of big spoonfuls of mash, ladle over the sauce and sprinkle on the parsley. PARSNIP AND CAULIFLOWER MASH METHOD Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Place the garlic on a baking tray and drizzle over some of the oil. Roast for 30 minutes, or until the garlic is golden and tender. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the parsnip and cauliflower and cook for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and shake off any excess water. Place the cooked parsnip and cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor. Cut the roasted garlic in half crossways and squeeze the soft garlic flesh straight into the food processor bowl. Add the remaining oil, the lemon juice and 80ml of water and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Chef Pete Evans says this slow-braised lamb shoulder is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes in his latest book Easy Keto by Pete Evans published by Plum, RRP $24.99. “I love to use my slow-cooker, but a flameproof casserole dish will do too; simply pop it in the oven and let the cooking process work its magic,” he says.

Maria Woods Principal, Sunshine Coast Grammar School

POSITIVE AND RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIPS ARE KEY TO DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP Living, working, learning and playing in a hyper-connected world is exhilarating, vital for thriving in the modern world and challenging at the same time. As educators and as caring, ethical people in the world, how we connect and our deliberate online words, actions and behaviours shine a light on our character, our morals and tell others much about us. We often hear how children born in the new world order are digital natives. They may appear comfortable with the speed of change and technological advancement that can provide so much good for learning, contributing to the world and becoming a global citizen. However, young people are still growing their character and can make mistakes that once upon a time would have been erased very quickly. Hence digital citizenship, cyber safety and the destructive

IMMEDIATE CHANGE TO MY HEARING

nature of cyber bullying are all key components of a student’s wellbeing framework in Australian schools and certainly here on the Sunshine Coast. In February 2018, the Queensland Anti-Cyberbullying Taskforce was appointed by the Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. For families, for schools, for individuals and communities, this Taskforce and its work throughout 2018 have been welcomed and above all else needed. What was clear in a report handed down in September is that at the heart of addressing digital citizenship is positive, respectful relationships. Our own individual moral compass needs to be pointed in the direction that values the dignity of every person. That’s what our school espouses daily in our mission and value statements, in our everyday interactions with families, colleagues and, most importantly, with students. We expect parents to partner with us and be the role models in how adults communicate online. ‘Keyboard warriors’ is very much a contemporary phrase born from unchecked, thoughtless rants that we can be regrettably exposed to every day of the year. We need to examine what we are modelling to our children if we want to ensure they grow up to be respectful and caring people with strong integrity and above all a kind heart.

As an avid lover of Opera Fay Nixon put off doing anything about her hearing loss for years as she feared hearing aids would change the quality and pitch of what she heard. For years she had been constantly asking those around her to repeat themselves and found herself not wanting to go out as much as she felt like a fool and thought others were talking too fast. Fay became quite angry and isolated with years of hiding behind her sister and relying on her to do the listening for her. All of that changed when a friend referred her to Michael at Expert Audiology Rehab Solutions. Faye thought she may have had a slight hearing loss in her left ear but as it turned out her right ear was far worse. Recalling the moment Michael fitted her for hearing aids and says she couldn’t believe the difference – ‘it was instantaneous’, and her husband saw an instant change as well (and was quite happy to stop having to repeat himself). Through her ‘little microphones in the ears’ she now is now loving the opera more than ever and is out in front of her sister leading the discussion. I wouldn’t say I go out any more than I once did, but I definitely enjoy it more and

CHOICE AND CONTROL CHANGED BRIAN’S LIFE

Support Coordination starts here

AAP A AA AP A P

With the NDIS now available on the Sunshine Coast, Blue Care is primed to support people like Bundaberg resident Brian, whose sense of adventure has been stirred over the past 12 months since the NDIS became available to him, writes Jacqueline Ferguson.

B Our Support Coordinators have an intimate understanding of disability and the challenges participants face in living an ‘ordinary life’. We bring experience, empathy and maturity in ensuring you are receiving the most from your NDIS Plan.

eing able to experience life in all its fullness is how Bundaberg resident Brian describes his year with an NDIS plan and budget. In the past few months the car enthusiast has been to drag racing, monster trucks and agricultural machinery events with his support worker David. Previously these outings would not have been financially possible. “I’ve always loved cars but being blind, well you don’t know what cars look like,” Brian says. “Being able to go to so many events and feel, touch, hear and smell the cars, I have these very detailed pictures in my head. I love Mustangs, Chevys and Monaros. They have a special sound. At the Agrotrend Agricultural Show tractor shows, I felt the width and height of the tyres.” A team from Blue Care Bundaberg has walked beside Brian on his NDIS journey. A support worker for the past 16 years, 11 of those with Blue Care, David says last year was the most rewarding of his career. “We talk about breaking down barriers in disability and for us, ours was geographical,” he says. “Before the NDIS, Brian and I were limited to Bundaberg.” Brian’s NDIS funding package includes support for community access and assistive technology. Specialised technology, including a talking microwave, has meant more independence for Brian in his own kitchen. Socially, overnight trips, drag races at Benaraby and Gladstone, the Childers Festival, Maryborough Sanctuary and days at the beach have all been made possible through the support provided by Blue Care and funded by the NDIS. When asked how life-changing this has

been for Brian, he says, “I am a 52-year-old Aussie who has only just got to feed his first kangaroo.” David says the NDIS has offered true choice and control. “There’s more flexibility in where we can go and when. “No longer is Brian restricted by a service and what is offered on what days and at what times. “Brian has asked for consistency in his support workers and flexibility in his outings and I can see the whole team doing everything they can in rostering, in scheduling, to do what Brian wants. We are all proud to be part of this transformation our service is going through and the difference it is making in people’s lives. It is exhilarating.” Brian says his weeks are now full. “I’m able to make the choices if I want to go away over the weekend, what hours I want support for and my outings,” he says. “Looking back, I guess for me that freedom of speech was missing. “While people and services in Australia may have meant well, they haven’t before now really been able to put people with disabilities’ needs first. “Sand beneath my toes, a kangaroo nuzzling food from my hand and the roar of a Chevy. This is life in all its fullness. “I have a normal life now and it is amazing.” Blue Care is a registered NDIS provider and can provide a wide range of services in the Sunshine Coast region to support people with disability to live life their way.

NDIS PROMOTION

SUPPORT FOR DISABILITY HOUSING The Specialist Disability Accommodation reforms will offer more independence, choice and control for NDIS participants.

T

he Federal Government has announced reforms to boost Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) for eligible NDIS participants. Minister for Families and Social Services Paul Fletcher and Assistant Minister for Social Services, Housing and Disability Services Sarah Henderson announced the changes in early February. When the NDIS is fully rolled out, it is expected that almost $700 million in SDA payments will be made each year to support almost 28,000 participants requiring a specialist housing solution. Speaking at the opening of a new SDA development by community housing organisation Summer Housing in Victoria, Mr Fletcher said the reforms address the outcomes of a review into SDA by the Council of Australian Governments Disability Reform Council, completed in December 2018. “The Government is introducing immediate changes to improve choice and control for eligible NDIS participants, build market confidence and drive stronger investment in Specialist Disability Accommodation. “These reforms will stimulate construction and supply of SDA properties, creating more diverse accommodation options for NDIS participants.” The purpose-designed Summer Housing property is the first to be developed under an NDIS pilot project which will be rolled out nationally to enable NDIS participants with specialist housing needs to access a home faster. Mr Fletcher says for the first time SDA will be included in participants’ plans up front, so participants, their carers or

myweeklypreview.com.au

35.indd 1

families can go into the market and find or commission a home that suits their needs. “Summer Housing is one of around 750 current providers of Specialist Disability Accommodation which will benefit from the changes to drive greater investment.” Ms Henderson says the government is committed to increasing participants’ choice and control in their SDA living arrangements. “The government is also working towards removing restrictions by July 2019 in the SDA rules that currently prevent some families from living together.

“This will give participants more flexibility to live where they want and with whom they want.” Youngcare CEO Anthony Ryan welcomed the announcement. “By restoring confidence in the Specialist Disability Accommodation market, we should now see a more optimistic environment which will allow for bespoke housing solutions for young people with high care needs,” he says. Summer Foundation CEO Luke Bo’sher says the changes are great news for the SDA sector. “The 50 younger people each week who enter aged care will benefit from this fast-track process to get the NDIS funding they need to avoid an inappropriate admission to a nursing home. “These changes create confidence across the affordable housing and finance sectors to scale up their efforts to create Specialist Disability Accommodation. These changes go a long way towards the vision of an NDIS that enables people with disability to live in high-quality, accessible housing integrated in communities across Australia.” The Department of Social Services (DSS) and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will engage with stakeholders to provide input on immediate implementation of the changes. The NDIA is establishing an SDA Reference Group, representing participants, providers and other stakeholders, to support the development of the SDA market, and the long-term viability of SDA investments to improve choice and control for participants. The NDIA will release the terms of reference and call for expressions of interest for individuals and organisations to participate. SOURCE: NDIS.GOV.AU/NEWS

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

Attached Virgos – take the time to talk through problems with your sweetheart. Singles – look beyond the exterior package that a potential partner presents; if the two of you can’t communicate well, then it’s just not going to last.

When it comes to relationships, Librans can become rather lazy. This week, Uranus shakes up your cosy comfort zone. If you’re attached, it’s time to inject some spontaneity into a somewhat stale relationship. Single? Don’t play it too safe.

It’s a wonderful week to entertain at home with a special meal as the planets stimulate your family and friendship zones. Being of service to others (with kindness, compassion and style) also brings much joy and satisfaction.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

This week, you’re prone to fiery pronouncements as you overpromise, overspend or overextend. Enthusiasm is high, but don’t jump to conclusions and pass on incorrect information. Get the facts straight, otherwise embarrassing mix-ups are likely.

The planetary patterns encourage you to adjust your home/work ratio so that it’s much more balanced and family-friendly. But loved ones won’t behave in predictable ways this week, so don’t even try to anticipate what they will do next.

This week, you’ll feel rather reckless, and your controversial comments and unpredictable antics could upset some sensitive people, in person or online. But, that’s life when you’re a free-wheeling Aquarius!

Mercury encourages you to build bridges with a child or teenager, initiate a fabulous new friendship, start a romance or take up a hobby you’ve always been interested in. But has an old relationship finally run out of steam?

NORTH SHORE REALTY IN-ROOM AUCTION EVENT With five of the 11 properties presented either sold under the hammer, sold prior, or now under contract, the North Shore Realty multi-auction event has once again displayed the talent of the property team. Held at the Ramada Marcoola earlier this month, the event attracted more than 80 people. “This event creates a lot of activity from buyers and the marketplace, which has allowed us to gather strong enquiry on the properties that didn’t sell on the night,” says Keith Blanchard, co-owner of North Shore Realty.”

with MWP’s man in the water

Its on like Donkey Kong. Yep, that low off the Queensland coast is sending in the goods. Just as I hop on a plane to Canada to go snowboarding. Damn! There is a small chance it might turn into a cyclone. All points should be worth a look with all roads leading to Noosa and Double Island. It will be crowded so get what you can. Secret tip – Mooloolaba on the high tide is always worth a look. My next report will be from Canada. Have fun peeps.

a beautiful place to live

Certainly beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To some it is lush, natural landscapes, whilst others prefer views of shimmering water.
