was 19 when my palate was first introduced to one of the world’s most popular beverages. I was working in my first media job and somehow I had been roped into making the senior journalist his daily cup of coffee. It was during one of my visits to the office kitchen that I decided it was time to make myself a cup too. My first coffee experience was a lukewarm cup of Nescafe Blend 43. I can feel the wrath of a thousand coffee lovers. But truthfully, I loved it. And so became my daily ritual: a coffee for my colleague and one for myself. Those were the days when coffee was simple – an instant, a cappuccino or a mocha if you were a bit fancy. Of course, as the years passed and I matured, so too did my coffee preferences. Sitting in a local cafe, sipping a hot blend of aromatic beans was a Sunday morning joy. And then a strange thing happened – I stopped drinking coffee and I haven’t had one in about eight years. While tea (green please!) is my weakness, ‘going for coffee’ is still an integral part of my social and family life. Supporting local businesses, particularly those who support local roasters, is something my family truly enjoys. And, given that the Coast’s coffee culture continues to rise, I’d say we aren’t alone. This edition, we take a look at the region’s coffee scene and share a few hotspots that coffee lovers will want to visit. The story is on page 12. Of course, we also have local news, travel, property and entertainment. Enjoy!

WORD OF TH THE WEEK Pervicacious

He may have been vanquished from the north of Westeros, but the Night King has turned up in the west of Australia. The CSIRO has named a one centimetrelong bee fly after the Game of Thrones supernatural supervillain, one of 230 new species named by the organisation in the past year. Bryan Lessard, entomologist at CSIRO’s National Research Collections Australia, says the Paramonovius night king was so-called because it only appears in winter in a small area of Western Australia, and has a crown of spine-like hairs. “Xuankun Li, who named the bee fly Paramonovius night king, is a PhD student at CSIRO and a huge fan of Game of Thrones, proving that inspiration for new species names can come from anywhere,” Dr Lessard says. “It has a serious side, but naming new species is the most fun a taxonomist can have.” Dr Lessard says scientists across Australia name about 1000 new species each year, and there is value in Australia’s biodiversity. – AAP

But first, T

he Sunshine Coast may have arrived a little late to the coffee game, but we’ve made good time in not only catching up, but also surpassing the coffee culture of major cities around the country. Coast coffee enthusiasts celebrate the coffee bean and the talented roasters and baristas who create unique spaces for people to experience the art of coffee. After all, coffee plays a large role in our economy. The 2019 IBISWorld Cafes and Coffee Shops – Australia Market Research Report shows the nation’s 20,781 cafes and coffee shops are thriving, injecting a staggering $9.9 billion into the economy. Interestingly, 95 per cent of the industry is made up of small, independent cafes. Our coffee culture is so refined that large chains like Starbucks quickly learn that Australians won’t compromise on quality. The American juggernaut opened 84 stores across the country in 2000 and within eight years had shut down 61 as consumers went

Tilly Sproule of Tim Adams Specialty Coffee is a talent to watch. The Sunshine Coast barista has won the 8th Fushan Cup International Barista Championship in China, beating 22 baristas from around the world at the exclusive invitation-only event. Her competition routine focused on terroir, which is the combination of variables that influence a coffee’s character and complexity. This can be anything from the growing conditions such as climate, soil and altitude of the farm or region, to the variety of coffee and processing techniques. Ms Sproule worked with Jamison Savage, a producer from Morgan Estate in Panama, to showcase a geisha (a superior

back to frequenting smaller cafes. However, national coffee consumption has grown rapidly. We now sit in 42nd place for coffee consumption worldwide. McCrindle Research shows three in four Australians enjoy at least one cup of coffee each day. We can thank the arrival of Italian and Greek immigrants after WWII for introducing coffee to the country. The quality espresso coffee culture took root in Australia in the 1950s and expanded significantly in the late 1980s until we found the gold standard we have embraced on the Coast today.

variety of coffee) that was processed using a new and innovative technique known as whole cherry carbonic maceration. This is where whole coffee cherries are fermented in a closed oxygen-free chamber, in Ms Sproule’s case, for 36 hours. The routine was an extension of what she presented at the 2019 Australian Specialty Coffee Association National Barista Championship in February, where she came in fifth place. Ms Sproule combined this process with a unique blend of milk from grass-fed Guernsey and grain-fed Friesian cows that she had spent six months perfecting, and her signature drink was a show-stopper, combining all of these techniques along with freeze distillation of her milk to achieve a melted ice-cream quality. “Knowing I was travelling to China, I wanted to work with a local fruit to bring connection between terroir of where we were and flavour,” she says. “I decided on papaya and reduced it down into a syrup with my cascara [coffee cherry skins] fermentation to create a syrup which had flavour qualities like peach and cacao.”

DID YOU KNOW? There are 20,781 cafes and coffee shops around Australia that inject $9.9 billion a year into the national economy.

MICHAEL DATTA Founder of Bare Coffee Company Before launching Bare Coffee in 2013, Michael Datta was a consultant to cafe owners who were starting up their businesses on the Sunshine Coast and he saw most cafes were buying roasted beans from Melbourne, Sydney or Italy. “I felt very strongly about showing local cafes and coffee lovers we could easily match and surpass the perceived quality that the above-mentioned cities/countries could deliver,” he says. “We too could source the highest-rated beans from the world’s most awarded green bean farmers, therefore create and craft outstanding roasted coffee. So we did.” Through Bare Coffee, Mr Datta and his team work with roasters in New South Wales, Victoria, New Zealand, the US and soon China, sharing their knowledge and

skill of creating and crafting coffee flavours. “Gone are the days of just pouring a flat white (which is still very good),” he says. “People now travel across Australia and the globe to see and taste new styles of coffee drinks every day. “Coffee lovers know what they like and don’t like. They want to know where the green beans that are roasted to make their cup of coffee comes from. It’s a wonderful industry in which knowledge can be shared with those who love their coffee. People care and really want to know.” Mr Datta says coffee creates a sense of community, belonging and place. “It’s an enabler, bringing people together and giving locals and visitors to the Sunshine Coast a place to meet. The start-up and small business community rely on coffee shops every day, as do the owners of these coffee shops,” he says. “The local coffee industry is a fantastic employer of all ages,” he adds. “Over the past few years, the Coast has become recognised as a quality coffee location on the Australian cafe and roaster scene.” Mr Datta says the local coffee movement has been growing consistently during the past 10 years. “I see the industry growing as is for the next 10 or more years. “Here in Australia, the next generation of cafe owners, baristas, suppliers, roasters will keep innovating and growing. The future is outstanding.”

CRAIG DAVIS Managing director of Vincenza Coffee Former pastry chef Craig Davis first launched himself into the coffee game in 2005, when he bought Sunshine Coffee in Maroochydore to distribute coffee for other brands. He purchased Vincenza Coffee from the Parkin family a decade later. Mr Davis created Maroochydore’s The Concept in order to establish a new Vincenza Coffee HQ and strengthen knowledge of the Coast origins of the nationally renowned brand. The Concept houses the Vincenza roastery, the Sunshine Coast Barista Training School and the Riba Kai cafe, which serves Vincenza coffee with paired meal options. This thriving venue celebrated its first anniversary last week. With a strong customer base across the Eastern seaboard of Australia, the Vincenza roastery prepares up to 1.2 tonnes of beans for distribution each week to more than 60 cafes throughout Queensland and New South Wales. Mr Davis says his passion lies in educating baristas because while he has “never had a bad-tasting coffee, I’ve definitely had a badly made coffee”. “We train at least 15 to 20 people each week in our onsite education hub and baristas learn everything from which farmers we source green beans from through to our roasting process and then different brewing methods to get the best results from their beans,” he says. With customers becoming more curious about where their coffee comes from, Mr Davis says cafe owners and baristas who know their stuff become fast favourites with coffee aficionados. “When I got into coffee 15 years ago, it

was a matter of just dropping the coffee off to cafes, but now it’s important to know every step the beans go through to reach the coffee drinker at the end of the chain,” he says. “There is a social aspect to drinking coffee and going to a cafe is about the full experience. Baristas know that. It’s their theatre and they can showcase their skills.” Baristas are highly trained and their ability to create latte art is not only a mark of flair, but is also an indication of their technique level because it is impossible if the milk isn’t exactly the right consistency and the correct temperature. Mr Davis travels the country extensively, experiencing cafe culture wherever he goes, and while he admits he “might be biased”, he believes the Coast has “by far the best hit and miss rate” when it comes to coffee. “If I walk down a street in Melbourne or Sydney and get a coffee at the first place I walk into, I can guarantee you it’s going to be bloody ordinary. You have to research where the best places to go are. But on the Coast, you get a very good product every time,” he says.

• Coffee beans grow on a bush and they are actually the pit of a berry, which makes them a fruit. • Kopi luwak is the most expensive coffee in the world. It comes from Indonesia and is made from beans digested from the Asian palm civet. In other words, it comes from cat poop. • Brazil produces about a third of the world’s supply, according to the International Coffee Organisation. This is about twice as much as the second-place holder, Vietnam.

MONTVILLE COFFEE Balmoral Road, Montville for wholesale roastery or visit the café at The Big Pineapple. Award-winning coffee is small-batch roasted for flavour and aroma using only certified fair-trade organic coffee beans.

Jane Caro will visit the Coast in July to discuss her new book, Accidental Feminists. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


“When a woman says to me, ‘I’m not a feminist’, I say ‘what’s wrong with you?’ Young women who don’t identify as feminists haven’t thought it through. When I was teaching at university, a student said she wasn’t a feminist. I said you’d better pack your bags and leave. I said if you’re not a feminist, you obviously don’t approve of women going to university. Feminists fought for your right to be here, they made sacrifices, they were mocked, some were jailed. I think it’s a cowardly position.” Ms Caro says while we still have a long way to go to achieve things like pay parity, men aren’t entirely to blame for where women find themselves today. “Women are just as affected by sexism as men are. Sexism and misogyny isn’t just something men do to women; women do it to other women and to themselves. Our grandmothers and mothers fully absorbed the idea they weren’t as clever and able as men. They passed that lack of confidence on as a poisoned chalice.” Ms Caro believes there’s a backlash against feminism because it’s become more effective as a movement but that disagreements within the movement itself are only natural. “I think feminism is a broad church and the fact that feminists disagree with each other is not evidence of failure, it’s evidence of a vigorous, dynamic movement. “My view of feminism is very simple. Feminism is the centuries-old fight by one half of the population to be taken seriously by the other half.”

“Young women who don’t identify as feminists haven’t thought it through”

Advocating for older women ocial commentator, writer and Walkley Award-winning journalist Jane Caro is not a woman to be messed with. She’s a straight-talking dynamo with a razor-sharp mind and a no-BS attitude. She’s also really funny. Speaking with My Weekly Preview in the lead-up to her visit to the Coast for literary festival Voices on the Coast, she gets straight to the point when asked why she wrote her latest book, Accidental Feminists. “I hope to open a conversation because we don’t talk about old women,” she says “We don’t see old women and to be honest with

young women get on board with that because if we don’t start to do something drastic about the way women’s working lives traditionally go, with part-time work and time out to care for children and elderly parents, we will have yet another generation of poor old women.” Ms Caro says she’d like her book to be read as widely as possible. “What I’m sick and tired of is women can read books written by men for men, but as soon as women write books about women, ooh girl’s germs. This generation of women didn’t set out to change the world; they thought they’d live the lives that women millennia before them lived. They’d find a spunk, settle down and have children and live happily ever after and, of course, that’s not how it turned out. “The thing I’m finding as I go around promoting the book, and talking to audiences of older women, is a lot of them tell me they didn’t used to identify as feminists, but they sure as hell do now. Now that feminism has come roaring back onto the agenda via social media, men and women can hear women’s voices directly rather than through male-dominated media, which tended to exaggerate stereotypes.” While generations of women fought for basic rights, there appears to be a backlash against feminism today, with leaders like Julie Bishop famously declining to call herself a feminist, along with younger generations of women who don’t see the point. “I think in the end it’s a self-defeating position. They think they can please the blokes if they say they’re not a feminist, although I understand the idea to align yourself with the powerful rather than the powerless. Usually people like Julie Bishop don’t identify as feminists because they will be absolutely out of a job if they do.

you, we don’t care about old women. We just want them to go away and die. They’re past their use-by date and they’re saggy and baggy. I want to change that focus.” The book looks at the history of women of Ms Caro’s generation, women who benefited from liberating breakthroughs like the pill and the tampon, who had free university education and yet today, represent a growing number of Australia’s homeless and destitute. “It has turned out well for some and very badly for others,” she says. “I examine why it has gone wrong for many women facing distress and homelessness. It’s really good if

The road to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics for local athletes is being paved at a fundraising lunch on July 12 at the Maroochydore RSL. Presented by the Sunshine Coast Sports Federation, the lunch aims to raise funds for local athletes who aim to compete at Tokyo 2020, while also presenting the latest progress reports on the Southeast Queensland 2032 Olympic Games bid. Sunshine Coast Sports Federation president Dr Brendan Burkett says Mayor Mark Jamieson and Queensland Olympic Taskforce chair Mark Stockwell will attend the lunch to outline details on the planned bid. The 2019 junior and senior Sports Star of the Year Awards will also be presented at the event. “We have a lot of talented local athletes here on the Sunshine Coast, the region is blessed with outstanding international, national and state-based athletes and teams and highly developed pathway programs across most junior sports. It’s little wonder why the Sunshine Coast is held in such high regard for its ability to produce elite athletes across a multitude of sports,” Dr Burkett says. The lunch will be held on July 12 at the Maroochydore RSL Events Centre from midday. Tickets are $125 per person or $1100 for a table of 10 and includes a two-course meal and beverages.

HOLD YOUR HORSES, THIS IS ONE TOUGH RIDE At midnight on July 12, more than 300 horses and their riders will take to the dark tracks of the Imbil State Forest to tackle Australia’s most prestigious endurance ride, the Tom Quilty Gold Cup. Steeped in history and internationally recognised, the Tom Quilty Gold Cup will see riders from as young as 12 and right up to 78 years of age take on the challenge of completing a 160-kilometre course with just a headlight and their four-legged friend for company. Matthew Sample, owner of Stirling’s Crossing Equestrian Complex, which will host the Tom Quilty Gold Cup for the first time, says this will be the biggest event in its 54-year history, with the local population expected to triple during the event.

After buying and renovating nine Maroochydore units for the homeless last year, Vinnies Community Sleepout 2019, to be held on August 8, is aiming to create new accommodation in Nambour. The annual fundraising event to tackle the Sunshine Coast’s homelessness crisis head on has been launched, with an aim to raise $150,000. Around 1600 people are sleeping rough every night in the region and the event will see community leaders sleep on the beach or on the floor of the Maroochy Surf Club for a night. Participants will include Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington and Mix FM radio announcer Todd Widdicombe. Visit to sponsor a participant.

FUNDRAISER TO FIGHT PROSTATE CANCER Planning is underway for the second annual Prostate Cancer Awareness lunch with organisers from the Noosa Prostate Association aiming to exceed the $100,000 raised at last year’s event. Chair of the Noosa Prostate Association Mitch Miller says the disease currently affects more than 200,000 Australian men. The lunch will be held on August 13 at the Noosa Tigers AFL club on Weyba Road. Media personality Steve Haddan will be the Master of Ceremonies and former AFL great and ‘Lambassador’ Sam Kekovich (pictured) is the guest speaker. Tickets are $200 per person with $170 from each ticket price donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. For more information, visit

An iconic Mooloolaba location is set to receive a multimillion-dollar facelift to ensure it remains a destination of choice for residents and visitors. The Mooloolaba Holiday Park at Parkyn Parade is now closed until early December, with the current facilities to be demolished and replaced with high-quality, modern amenities. The extensive $3.8-million upgrade will replace the 75 small powered sites with 60 larger sites, all with improved access, new amenities including a camp kitchen, landscaping and improved connections to the beachside boardwalk. A $500,000 renewal of the northern section of the Mooloolaba Spit boardwalk will coincide with the redevelopment of the holiday park and is anticipated to be complete by late September, weather permitting. This is the second and final stage of the $2.5-million boardwalk renewal, a joint initiative of Sunshine Coast Council and the Queensland Government through the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program. Divisional councillor John Connolly says stage one involved widening pathways and improving beach access and the next stage will deliver further improved beach access, along with new public seating and lighting.

OCEAN STREET IS SET TO BECOME SAFER A night out on Ocean Street, Maroochydore is set to become safer with the installation of ‘pop up’ bollards to restrict vehicle traffic on Friday and Saturday evenings. This new community safety infrastructure has been fast-tracked by Sunshine Coast Council in response to concerns raised by Queensland Police Service, local traders and stakeholders of the Safe Night Sunshine Coast Precinct Association. Sunshine Coast District Officer, Superintendent Darryl Johnson says the ability for QPS to make temporary closures to the road provides an additional layer of comfort and security in that vehicles are removed from the area to allow pedestrians to move around freely.


McGrath Estate Agents Buderim and Mooloolaba have presented $12,000 worth of cheques to a variety of Sunshine Coast community organisations through the McGrath Community Giveback initiative. Every time an agent sells a home, $500 is given back to the client’s chosen school, sporting club or not-for-profit organisation. The presentation was celebrated with a morning tea at McGrath Estate Agents Mooloolaba office on Brisbane Road.

DREDGE ACQUISITION AN AUSTRALIAN FIRST Queensland has become home to the largest Australianowned backhoe dredge, creating an opportunity for Sunshine Coastbased company Hall Contracting to undertake dredging projects that were previously limited to overseas contractors. The vessel – a Backacter (BA) 900 christened Woomera – makes it possible to excavate hard material like rock and clay in confined locations. Spanning a massive 65 metres in length, Woomera was designed in the Netherlands and can dredge depths of up to 26 metres.

GM5 STILL GOING STRONG AFTER 20 YEARS Give Me 5 for Kids is expected to reach its target of $500,000 raised for Wishlist. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


he community has once again thrown its support behind the annual 92.7 Mix FM Give Me 5 for Kids (GM5) campaign and breakfast announcer and passionate GM5 campaigner Caroline Hutchinson is confident they will reach their $500,000 fundraising goal this year. The total amount raised for the 20th anniversary of GM5 will be announced on air at 8am on July 5 and brings a month of incredible events and activities to an end. Ms Hutchinson says the month started off “a bit slow” with numbers down on previous years, but as June progressed, the community showed up in full force. One of the last events was Jessie’s Party in the Park at Golden Beach on Sunday, which turned into a beautiful, sunny day. Reflecting on this year’s campaign, Ms Hutchinson says there is just as much passion and support from the community as there was when it was first launched two decades ago. “In one way, 20 years has gone so quickly and when I look back through every single one of the campaigns, I always find something that I can’t believe we pulled off,” she says. “This year, one of those highlights for me was bringing back the Cow Pat Bingo and it was literally due to community involvement

Mark Darin and Caroline Hutchinson with Brooke Seignior (centre) that it happened. We had Immanuel Lutheran College, Roz White, Kenilworth Dairies and Kook pull it all together in two days and we made $10,000. “This was only possible because the community jumped on board and said ‘we can do it’ and these types of events are always highlights for me.” Ms Hutchinson says there were tears

aplenty at the annual Sam’s Pool auction, where Mark and Tanya Martin donated a pool package from Narellan Pools in honour of their late son, who died from a rare cancer at the age of eight. “Mark and Tanya epitomise Give Me Five, those who choose to raise money for other people’s kids after the worst thing happened to their family,” she says. “They are the heart and soul of GM5 and there are so many people bidding that this pool always go for full value, no one’s looking for a bargain, they want to donate and honour Sam and it makes us cry every year.” Brooke Seignior’s attempt to break the world record for the most amount of haircuts completed in 24 hours wasn’t completed, but Ms Hutchinson praised the valiant efforts of the Brooke Morgan Hair owner. “Mark [Darin] and I have done 24-hour broadcasts where you sit down the entire time and think and complain that we are so tired, but Brooke was on her feet and worked incredibly hard,” she says. “She started at 7am and made it until 2.30am the following morning before she began to feel ill. She fell at the last post, but she raised a whole lot of money and is such a legend.

With the milestone campaign completed, Ms Hutchinson says the core team of 12 radio station members are celebrating another successful year and more than $5 million raised since 1999. “In June, we actually get to meet families who are at the hospital and we see the difference that the money makes when it is sent by Wishlist on equipment and services for paediatrics and half a million dollars literally changes kids’

“This was only possible because the community jumped on board…” lives,” she says. Wishlist, the beneficiary of GM5, will use this year’s funds to continue the Sunshine Coast Clown Doctor Service for another two years, as well as purchase other much-needed equipment and support services for paediatric patients and their families.

Tessa Wallace (bottom left) presents Jenaya Massie (bottom right) with an Olympic flag


aving former Nutri-Grain Ironman Series champion Ashley Massie as a father and with Brianna and Tiarnee Massie (who are making their mark on the open women’s kayaking circuit and Ironwoman competitions respectively) as cousins, it’s not surprising Jenaya Massie is drawn to the water. “It’s in my genes,” the 17-year-old champion kayaker says.

Miss Massie was the sole Australian representative at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games canoeing competition in Barcelona and recently won gold in the K1 and K2 500 metres at the 2019 Asia Pacific Sprint Cup at Lake Karapiro in New Zealand in May. These are just the latest medals to be added to the growing number of accolades Miss Massie has achieved on the water since leaving her roots in surf lifesaving to pursue kayaking as a 14-year-old. Miss Massie says she initially tried kayaking as a means of improving her surf ski skills, but soon developed a passion for the sport. She made the switch and it quickly paid off – in her first Australian titles, Miss Massie won gold in the 2.5-kilometre K1 and backed that up the following year with six gold, three silvers and a bronze across a range of singles, doubles and team distances. The Year 12 Nambour Christian College (NCC) student was presented with an Olympic flag by swimming Olympian Tessa Wallace, who graduated from NCC in 2012, in a special outdoor ceremony before the Secondary School Athletics Carnival on June 21. Miss Wallace has represented Australia at the Commonwealth and Olympic Games. Juggling exams with ongoing training,



Jenaya Massie is carrying the family name into kayaking, a sport that she is quickly dominating. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Jenaya Massie has a passion for kayaking Miss Massie says she has had to make sure she is on top of her school work and assignments by doing them as soon as they are handed out, rather than having a last-minute dash to complete them on time. “The school has been great,” she says. “Because I train three times a day in peak season, they have given me four spares each week that allow me to catch up on my study and assignments. “I can keep on top of everything with lots of diaries and planners, but sometimes I’m not able to do what a 17-year-old would do on the weekends because I have to stay in and study, but it’s all worth it.”


• We are the leading supplier and installer of welded PROWLER PROOF SECURITY DOORS & WINDOWS

Once she graduates from NCC, Miss Massie plans to study psychology at the University of the Sunshine Coast and then sports psychology, all while continuing to up the ante on her competitive edge at an international level. “My goal is Paris 2024 and in the years along the way, I want to make the world junior teams and the Asia Pacific teams and perform well at a national level,” she says. “The international competition standard, especially from the Europeans, is exceptional so I will be doing what I can to bring up my standard even higher. Next year will be a big year for me.”

BUSINESS & FINANCE in the near term, and it would take several years to put through a meaningful expansion in any case. The company expects the currently curtailed production from Brazil’s Vale (due to tailings dam failure) to return to the market around the time that BHP could deliver a potential expansion, so it is challenging to justify such an expansion.

body is not as contiguous as first thought. BHP expects a final investment decision to be made by mid to late 2020.

THERMAL COAL BHP may close its thermal coal arm in the early 2020s once tax losses are used up. These losses are around $US600 million for the Hunter Valley Mt Arthur mine, an amount seen as material when considering the after-tax value for shareholders. An exit will be easier once these tax losses are used in the early 2020s – a spin-off has been considered in the past but is complex, and a trade sale would be simpler.

COPPER BHP is not planning another large-scale expansion of the Escondida project in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile until the end of the 2020s, when grades of the red metal at the world’s largest copper mine are expected to decline to 0.6 per cent from 0.9 to one per cent currently. This issue – in other words as grades decline more ore needs to be processed to produce the same amount of metal – is also a factor at the Spence operation, also located in the Atacama Desert.



he iron ore price has excited investors on the local Australian share market in recent months, trading at prices over $US110 per tonne. This has benefited stocks like Fortescue Metals (FMG), Rio Tinto (RIO) and BHP Billiton (BHP), which have been trending up to levels not seen since the height of the market before the infamous GFC meltdown. We recently received an update on BHP, the world’s largest resources company by market capitalisation. The highlights of its key divisions are shown below.

METALLURGICAL COAL The BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance in Queensland is planning a 12- to 16-milliontonne expansion. BHP is confident the market can take the additional tonnes, and sees low-capital-intensity expansions at Blackwater and Caval Ridge projects. Metallurgical coal, also known as coking coal, isn’t just a China story – there is growth in steel output in India, which produces no

local metallurgical coal. BHP also sees reserve depletion across the industry, and believes new supply coming on is largely inferior in quality to the product coming from the Bowen Basin.

BHP sees the oil outlook as very attractive into the 2020s, with demand peaking in the 2030s, and a four-percentage-point gap between demand growth and supply – in other words one per cent demand growth with a three per cent decline in supply. This leaves demand in a state of inducement economics – with an oil price that provides incentive for new supply – continuously over that period.

OLYMPIC DAM The brownfield expansion concept designed to take production at the giant copper-goldsilver-uranium miner in South Australia to 330,000 tonnes per annum has been reduced in scope to 240 to 300,000 tonnes, as the ore

Sami Muirhead was moved by Dylan Alcott’s speech at the Logies and hopes it helps bring the work of the Compass Institute into the spotlight.

Leigh Robshaw believes the world became a better place thanks to The Beatles and the indelible mark they left on the world’s musical landscape.


est part of my week? It was watching Dylan Alcott win the Most Popular New Talent award at the Logies. The 28-year-old athlete is a star on the rise and gave a truly remarkable speech about the importance of representation. “This award means a lot to me, because I absolutely hate having a disability. I have been in a wheelchair my whole life and I have hated it. One of the reasons I hated it was because when I turned on the TV, I never saw anybody like me… I wanted to get a job on TV because I love sharing stories, but also to show that people with disabilities can be talented, funny, humorous: just normal people enjoying their lives. “There are 4.5 million people like me with a disability. Whether it’s in education, employment, going on a date, whatever it is, please give them an opportunity too. Because there are a lot of bloody talented people out there. I promise you they won’t disappoint,” he said. One local organisation is spearheading this approach to giving everyone a go. Compass Institute supports people with physical and intellectual disabilities. It has many arms and focuses include therapy dogs for kids, running a farm where employees make jams that are sold locally and bridging the gap when high school finishes and youths are searching for their next chapter in life. It basically turns the

rulebook on its head about what a disability service can look like and what it can achieve. Parents of kids with disabilities live in fear: fear their kids will be bullied; fear their kids won’t get a job; fear is imbued in everyday life. Compass is easing a little of that fear. Compass is getting bigger every year and has just signed a deal with the revamped Big Pineapple site. Compass now supports more than 190 trainees through 80 staff across five centres and 12 social enterprises that include micro-businesses such as a 20-acre farm where employees grow fruit and vegetables that is turned into consumables for sale locally. So if you want to help it is really easy: if you are not in a position to give a Compass employee a job, you can still support them by such simple acts as buying a jar of jam (the brand is Harvest Kitchen) or ringing Compass to find out about their dozens of other services. They have a very cool cafe at Nambour as well called Connections Cafe, where staff members have a disability. But this does not solely define them. They are also funny and kind and love their job. It is the ultimate example of service with a smile and the most special cafe I have ever visited. Trust me, it is a cuppa that will nourish your soul and your hard earned dollar will be making a real difference. And for the record, the coffee is really good too!

saw the film Yesterday recently and the premise, while completely absurd, was an interesting one. The entire globe experiences a blackout and when the power comes back on, certain icons of pop culture have been erased from the world’s memory, including The Beatles. It poses the question: what would a world without The Beatles be like? The film doesn’t really answer that question, but rather uses it as a springboard for a struggling musician to rip off all their music and become famous while navigating a fairly predictable romantic storyline. But hearing songs like Yesterday and The Long and Winding Road through the ears of the characters in the film who have never heard of The Beatles was a real thrill. It was a

“What would a world without The Beatles be like?” moving reminder of just how good these songs were and still are – timeless tunes that elevated pop music into an art form. So – what would a world without the Beatles look like? Well, let’s look at just a few of the musicians they influenced. Bruce Springsteen said he wouldn’t be where he was without The Beatles. Billy Joel said the single biggest moment that inspired him to

want to be a musician for life was seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Gene Simmons of Kiss said he was blown away by how four skinny boys from the middle of nowhere could make music like that. Dave Grohl of Nirvana and the Foo Fighters taught himself to play guitar with a Beatles songbook and said he wouldn’t be a musician without them. Even the king of grunge himself, Kurt Cobain, was a fan. Queen, Elton John, Ed Sheeran, The Eagles, Joni Mitchell, The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas, The Byrds, Black Sabbath, The Pixies, Oasis, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Coldplay, the Bee Gees, U2, R.E.M, The Cure, Lady Gaga, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, The Police… and that’s just scratching the surface. Without The Fab Four, just think of all the kids who would never have thought to themselves, that song makes me feel like I’ve just seen God. Sounds simple enough, I’m going to give this music thing a crack. But then, nature hates a vacuum, so had The Beatles never existed, another band may have materialised to fill the space. The Dung Beetles perhaps, with their hits I Want to Roll Your Dung, All You Need is Dung and Here Comes the Dung. They would have sounded like a cross between Oasis and Nickelback after their guitars were savaged by a pack of wild chihuahuas. No one wants to live in a world like that, so I think we can all agree: the world owes a lot to those skinny lads from Liverpool.

Bring your picnic rug along to Eumundi’s Dick Caplick Park to enjoy an afternoon of free live music at Park Sounds. The July 7 event from 1pm to 4pm will feature Gympieborn jazz and pop fusion artist Alisha Todd, indie/folk starlet Majelen and Newcastlebased funk and R&B trio Smoke and Rain (pictured). This alcohol-free event is the perfect place to chill out with friends and family and enjoy a host of great tunes.


JOIN THE FESTIVITIES The program for the 2019 Horizon Festival has been unveiled.


pportunities to immerse yourself in the arts will abound in late August as the Horizon Festival returns to the region. From the beach to the hinterland, Horizon is a 10-day celebration of visual art, music, words and ideas, art, tech, film and much more. This year the festival will take over the emerging Maroochydore City Centre, transforming the space from construction site into Festival Central, the thriving creative hub with performances, workshops, live music, pop-up galleries and delicious food. A highlight of the program is the Australian premiere of The Cold Record by Rude Mechs. It tells the story of a 12-year-old boy who tries to break the record for the most days leaving school sick, and in the process falls in love with the school nurse and learns to appreciate punk rock.

Meanwhile, Blak Social celebrates our First Nations artists with a varied line-up including Alice Skye, Kee’ahn, Chocolatte Boxx, Katina Olsen and Gubbi Gubbi Dance. Other well-known artists and performers appearing at the festival are Jack Charles, Jody Haines, Lincoln Austin, Michaela Gleave and Louise King. Arts portfolio councillor Rick Baberowski says this year’s program showcases a remarkable mix of art forms and performances. “This year there are a number of more interactive events, that really engage the community and remind us just how diverse our region is becoming and how heritage provides some perspective on change,” Cr Baberowski says.

Artists Tracey Nicholson, Kassandra Fletcher and Christina Fletcher



In celebration of NAIDOC Week, 18 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who are experiencing or caring for someone who is living with a disability or who is frail aged will have their artwork showcased at a dedicated art exhibition opening at the Beulah Gallery in Buderim. The Nandjimadji and Murri Connections art groups – an initiative of not-for-profit organisation Suncare Community Services – were founded to address issues such as social isolation and the lack of culturally safe environments for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to come together and connect. Suncare chief executive Russell Mason says the group’s exhibition aims to raise awareness of the barriers faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the community who are living with or

caring for their elders or someone with a disability or mental illness. “We often find people with disabilities and their carers can feel socially isolated, so it’s inspiring to see these local and Brisbane-based residents – who until recently found it difficult to participate in the community – now fully engaging with others and telling the story of their art to collectors and art enthusiasts,� he says. “The Sunshine Coast community group took its name ‘Nandjimadji’ from the local Gubbi Gubbi language, which means to lighten the load, and we can certainly see this in practise as these incredible artists build friendships and express themselves through art.� The Nandjimadji and Murri Art Exhibition will be held between July 8 and 12 and art works are available to purchase.

Jack Quick weaves an intriguing path through the Central Coast vineyards of New South Wales to unearth the truth of a podcast he created of a young girl’s murder. His podcast resulted in the release of the convicted murderer, but Jack has his doubts that he has done the right thing. For a first-time novelist, Benjamin Stevenson has created a mystery novel that keeps you captivated right to the end with so many changes of focus on possible suspects. A recommended read full of twists and turns.

a little dream


With sparkling blue water, soft white sand and colourful marine life, Daydream Island tempts you to indulge in a winter escape. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

Daydream Island is only one of the fabulous places to visit while holidaying in the Whitsundays.


Marine life isn’t the only wild experience on offer at Daydream, as we discovered on a morning stroll to Lover’s Cove. The small pebble and shell-covered beach is a haven for snorkellers, and also for the island’s resident wallaby and kangaroo population. The curious creatures will happily watch as their human visitors frolic and take in the wonders of this tropical, relaxing paradise.


y eyes are closed and I can feel the cool wind sweep across my body, my unruly hair whipping my face. I smell the ocean – fresh, slightly salty and clean. I breathe the air deeply into my lungs and allow my senses to centre and focus. I need this moment of clarity and I can feel my mind thanking me for this brief minute. An uncontrollable giggle breaks my reverie and my eyes open to focus on my five-year-old son, who is holding his hat tightly on his head and enjoying the sense of freedom this boat ride offers. The turquoise-blue ocean stretches before us and jade-green islands majestically rise from its water. Soon our destination appears – a small island of white sand, a blend of tropical and natural plants and home to one of the Whitsundays’ newest and most stylish resorts. Daydream Island Resort may have old bones – its history dates back to the 1930s – but it has recently undergone a $100-million redevelopment after it was battered during Australia’s second-most costly tropical storm, Cyclone Debbie, in 2017. The result is a contemporary vision

encompassing 277 refurbished rooms and suites, stylish foyer, lounge and the ecofriendly Living Reef. The free-form coral lagoon, which wraps 200 metres around the central building, is home to more than 100 species of local marine life including fish, small sharks and rays. And, it creates quite a stunning centrepiece for this pretty resort. It was this reef that kept our son entertained each breakfast and dinner during our four-night getaway. As he mused: it isn’t every day you can watch sharks swim by as you enjoy your pancake stack. Marine education and preservation is a key value of the team at Daydream Island, and this is evident in the activities and experiences on offer. There is the chance to join the marine biologists in the Reef Rangers program, snorkel in the ocean, swim with the stingrays or learn more about coral and mangrove systems at the Education Centre. For those who prefer to stay dry, the Underwater Observatory is a highlight not to be missed. As you descend the four metres down to the dimly-lit room beneath, you will come face to face with a stunning array of marine creatures viewed through the sevenby three-metre window

IF YOU GO GETTING THERE: Jetstar and Virgin Australia offer flights from Brisbane direct to Proserpine and Hamilton Island. From here you can transfer via Cruise Whitsundays to Daydream Island. Timetables and pricing are available online. Visit STAYING THERE: Daydream offers a range of accommodation options from the standard room to the serenity suite, which boasts views over the stunning Lover’s Cove. We opted for the superior room with pool and ocean views. All rooms have been renovated, are light-filled and some have a small balcony. You can currently book a four-night package for a family of four for $1299 excluding airfares. Conditions apply. PLAYING THERE: If you are after an action-packed holiday, this is not the place for you. That said, there is still plenty to keep both children and adults entertained, from kayaking, snorkelling and fish feeding, to jet ski tours and swimming with baby stingrays. For more visit

Whitehaven Island is the destination that dreams are made of. The purest white sand (so pure that 98 per cent of it consists of quartz) crystal blue water, native bushland and cloudless skies. Cruise Whitsundays offers various day trips that include a visit to this Queensland paradise. For the adventurous, the Ultimate Whitehaven Beach Hike, Hill Inlet & Lookout tour, from $299 per person, is a full day of exploring the natural beauty of the island. For young families, we recommend the Whitehaven Beach and Hamilton Island tour, priced from $185 per person.

2. AIRLIE BEACH No visit to the Whitsundays is complete without a night or two at the beachside village of Airlie. The sleepy township is nestled on the blue coastline and is the gateway to the tropical islands. If you are there on a Saturday, be sure to start your day at the bustling markets. Situated along the esplanade, there is a wide range of fresh produce, art and craft and even camel rides. Continue your day by lunching at one of the many cafes adjacent to the market grounds. We love Italian restaurant La Tabella for its fresh, delicious fare, solid wine list and views. Families may prefer to dine at the recently renovated The Pub at Airlie Beach Hotel. The large and modern alfresco area is the perfect place to sit back and take in the beautiful weather. The meals are tasty and hearty in size.

3. HIT THE ROAD If you choose to spend some time in Airlie Beach, a visit to Northerlies Beach Bar and Grill is a must. Perched beachfront on the outskirts of the town, it is also home to the new Nakamal Pavilion and Moon Bar – both which offer views for days and the perfect place to unwind. Northerlies offers a shuttle service. Visit for more information.

Relations with a child, teenager or friend will be strained; the more you try to organise them, the worse things will be. Avoid getting drawn into pointless power plays. The best way you can help loved ones is to support them in practical ways.

Expect some dramas as Saturn and Pluto stir up old grievances with a family member or a colleague. By all means, use your natural diplomatic talents to help smooth troubled waters but, if you let others make decisions, you’ll just feel powerless.

This week’s stars boost your personal magnetism – and your manipulative side. Pluto gives you an energy surge that increases your desire to be in charge but, if you want to avoid unnecessary power struggles, stop trying to control others.





With Mercury now retrograde, take special care when travelling and double-check your itinerary. There could also be some stress involving money or intimacy. Be patient with your partner; be careful with cash and credit; and think things through.

Your perfectionist side is likely to go into overdrive as this week’s stars amp up your obsession with perfection. But other people may find your standards too demanding and, if you push too hard, you’ll just end up pushing them away.

Avoid being disruptive and getting drawn into disputes with family, friends or colleagues. This week will work best if you keep your nose out of other people’s business and concentrate on pursuing personal projects.

On Wednesday and Thursday, the sun/Neptune trine is terrific for creative projects and spiritual pursuits. But Mercury retrograde and Uranus will also disrupt your daily routine and a romance or friendship could experience difficulties.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23) With Mars and retrograde Mercury both visiting your sign, you’re in the mood to mix and mingle, but will others be happy to hear what you’ve got to say? This week’s tempestuous stars also highlight your inclination to jealous or overbearing behaviour.

With Mercury reversing through your self-esteem zone, are you still punishing yourself for a mistake you made or holding a grudge against someone? It’s time to forgive others – and yourself – for transgressions from the past.

Keep in mind that Mercury (your patron planet) is in retrograde motion until July 31, so make sure you back-up all your computer files. Plus, allow plenty of time to get to appointments and double-check everything as you revise.




Mercury is now reversing through your home zone, so be careful how you communicate with family members. When it comes to other matters, Uranus (in your sign) urges you to jump out of your comfort zone and shake off bad habits.

The pace picks up this week … and so do the challenges. Retrograde Mercury connects with Mars (on Monday and Tuesday), so be extra careful with what you say. If you don’t self-edit, then you could end up with a messy misunderstanding.

PROPERTY months, Mr Cattle says this is an indication the Coast market is stable. “It is the most consistent market I can remember in the last 20 years in real estate. We haven’t had the massive price hikes and reductions seen in the southern states, and this is possibly the first time the Coast has stood on its own in terms of how it has reacted to market conditions,” he says. Mr Cattle says sellers get into the ‘danger zone’ at around five weeks if they still haven’t sold their property and will have to prepare themselves for lower offers to come in. “The way to avoid this is to invest in the

“How long has this property been on the market?” Ross Cattle says print ads rather than online ads drive the most inquiries from homebuyers. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane


he above question is one of the first out of the mouth of any potential buyer and Define Property principal Ross Cattle says he hears it from the very first day he lists a property. Why? Because buyers are weighing up whether they can come in with an offer lower than the listed asking price and the longer a property spends on the market, the more likely they are to think the seller is open to negotiation. In the industry, this is known as price creep and shows a direct correlation between how long a property is on the market for and its final sale price. The REIQ Queensland Market Monitor March Quarter 2019 report shows Sunshine Coast properties are spending less time on the market than the state median and are also attracting a lower vendor discount as a result. In this report, the REIQ has changed the method of calculating the days on market and vendor discount from average calculation to a median calculation. CoreLogic RP Data Market Trends quoted in the QMM report show Sunshine Coast houses are spending a median 39


days on the market, compared to 47 days for Queensland and Coast vendors are discounting a median of 3.9 per cent compared to 4.8 per cent statewide. This discount was the smallest in the state. Coast units are spending a median of 50 days on the market, 10 days less that the state median, with a 3.1 per cent vendor discount. The report states that even though it appears the Coast’s market is moderating, days on market continue to trend down over the past year, with the region reducing its days on market for homes by three days in the past 12 months. Mr Cattle says the QMM report’s figures are consistent with what he has seen in the first quarter of the year, but March was “one of the biggest months [for sales] I’ve done in the last 14 months.” “When you look at April and May, things were taking a little bit longer and the election always creates uncertainty among buyers, but in the 10 to 12 days after the election, we secured $10 million worth of sales and June was consistent with what we’d expect at this time of year.” With the median vendor discount increasing by just 0.2 per cent in the past 12

“The more people that look at a property, the more potential buyers you attract, the faster it will sell and at a higher price.” Having invested in a number of marketing avenues from brochures to online videos and re-targeted marketing, Mr Cattle says they continue to see greater inquiries for properties generated from print advertisements than through portals like and Domain. “When you’ve got people interstate looking to buy on the Sunshine Coast, they search for Maroochydore or Mooloolaba online, they don’t realise there are all these ‘hidden’ gems like Wurtulla, Bokarina and Parrearra and this is where print boosts the success of holistic marketing campaigns,” he says. “Sellers should also never underestimate the presentation of their property to get them a quicker sale. Sometimes it’s just a matter of a little elbow-grease.”

marketing process to ideally sell your home in the strongest timeframe, which is typically two to three weeks,” he says. “To do that, you have to reach every single buyer that could possibly want to buy your home. People seem to be so concerned about saving on marketing, but lots of people, some agents as well, don’t realise how detrimental this it to the sale price you can achieve.

The Sunshine Coast market is looking much stronger than the state averages. With Coast houses spending 39 days on the market with a median 3.9 per cent vendor discount. By contrast, the state median days on market is 47 with a median vendor discount of 4.8 per cent. When it comes to units, the Coast median is 50 days on market with a 3.1 per cent discount and the Queensland median is 60 days on market and 4.8 per cent vendor discount.

REACHING NEW GOALS Palmview’s Harmony community welcomes another happy customer as Sunshine Coast Lightning star Laura Scherian sets up home.


unshine Coast Lightning star, Laura Scherian has found her dream home in Palmview’s largest masterplanned community, Harmony by AVID Property Group. The dynamic player and first homebuyer moved into her new three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with her partner in April 2019 and has since enjoyed the relaxed lifestyle Harmony has to offer. “To be honest I feel so relaxed since moving to Harmony. I’m loving living here – the community has such a fantastic feel which is why we bought the block of land in the first place,” Ms Scherian says. “Just the other day a neighbour came over to ask for a couple of eggs, which just sums up the neighbourly vibe going on here. “The community at Harmony is so warm, friendly and welcoming. It has been nice moving into a new suburb with such an amazing community feel. “It’s that community feel that has made moving to Harmony worthwhile. “There is a diverse mix of age groups at Harmony, so whatever your stage in life, you will always fit in.” Harmony’s convenient location – close to the University of the Sunshine Coast,

“The community at Harmony is so warm, friendly and welcoming”

where Ms Scherian trains and plays for the Sunshine Coast Lightning –was one of the deciding factors for the athlete and her partner. “I work at the university just down the road, so it only takes me six minutes to drive to work. I’m also close to the beach and not far to Brisbane too,” Ms Scherian says.

“The location of our home is close to parks and the proposed shopping precinct, so we thought it was a central place to build.” AVID Queensland general manager Bruce Harper says the community is growing into a vibrant area that attracts an array of buyers.

“Buyers, both local and interstate, are seeing that the Sunshine Coast is such a great place to live, with employment opportunities created by the new university and Kawana hospitals, the future Maroochydore CBD and the five new schools set to open over the next 10 years,” Mr Harper says. “Harmony was strategically located in Palmview to meet this increased demand for stylish, affordable housing in the Sunshine Coast growth region. “There’s a lot to love, but the fact that our community has been designed to cater for people and families of all ages is hugely attractive to buyers.” “We want our new residents to feel part of the community and it is incredible to see residents already making lifelong friends with their new neighbours. Catering to a variety of lifestyles and budgets, blocks in Harmony’s latest release, Unity 9A, range in size from 250m2 to 450m2 and start from just $228,500 for a 250m2 lot.

with MWP’s man in the water

Okay, back to reality. But the good news is there’s heaps of big swell. Looking like heaps of wind too, which is a bit of a bummer. That said, if you have time, I would road trip straight to Agnes Water and walk into Springs Beach. Reckon that will be very worthwhile. Noosa will be on for sure, as will DI. Maybe Mooloolaba on the high tide! Pick your poison and get some bombs. WSL – looks like J-Bay starts next week, let’s hope John John is back from injury. Maybe Julian can get a win? Damn, he certainly needs one now. Or the old guy Mr Slater(47) is now ranked seventh and if it’s big, he will be the one to watch. Laters.
