t first thought, food foraging sounds like tough work. It also sounds like something only an experienced chef would have the nous to do. Think again. This ancient method of food gathering has had a resurgence, and it is something we can all get on board with. It can also be as basic or as advanced as you choose. In fact, you’ve probably already had an experience with foraging at some stage in your life. In our childhood, my brother and I spent many hours at the back of our farm, picking ripe mangoes for Mum to add to our fruit salads. We waded through the Guinea grass to reach the cool shadows beneath the tamarind tree to gather the pods. The overgrown mulberry tree, laden with the dark wild fruit, was a particular favourite and we’d spend hours in its branches, eating the sweet berries. This week, deputy editor Leigh Robshaw explores the art of foraging as part of her cover story about the Sunshine Coast’s inaugural The Curated Plate. The Sunshine Coast Council-supported festival celebrates all things foodie and it’s a huge coup for our region to welcome such a prestigious event that honours the paddock to plate concept. You can read the story on page 10. We have a jam-packed edition this week with profile stories, local news, the latest in technology, travel and property. Plus, we acknowledge the 27 finalists in this year’s Sunshine Coast Business Women’s awards with a feature on page 37. Enjoy.

The call of kookaburras, the sounds of waves crashing on the beach and Men at Work’s hit song Down Under all evoke a sense of Australia, according to new research from Hearing Australia. Music and other sounds trigger memories and emotions, and are key to how humans connect to people and place. “The sounds we hear can evoke different moods and feelings and remind us of experiences that we associate with those sounds,” says Emma Scanlan, principal audiologist with Hearing Australia. With that in mind, Hearing Australia commissioned a survey to determine the sounds and songs that meant the most to Aussies. The survey found the sounds of kookaburras, the didgeridoo and waves crashing on the beach most reminded people of the country they call home. Songs like I Am Australian, I Still Call Australia Home and Down Under also captured the essence of Australia. The study also asked people to ponder the sounds they would miss most if they incurred hearing damage or loss. Music, the sounds of nature and their partner’s or loved ones’ voices topped the list. The sounds that bring the most joy include rain on a roof, children laughing and waterfalls, the researchers found. The sounds of a barbecue sizzling, Mr Whippy’s ice-cream jingle and summer cricket in the backyard all brought on a sense of nostalgia. - AAP

glorious food

The Curated Plate is bringing regional food to the fore over two delicious weeks when world-class chefs join Sunshine Coast foodie favourites at this inaugural event. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


idden in the tangle of bush outside my childhood home was a wild blackberry plant. I still remember the delight of wandering through that bushland as a child, picking and eating plump, juicy blackberries straight off the tree. It seemed too good to be true – that you could find food growing wild and it was free and delicious. I didn’t know there was a name for what I was doing, and what humans have instinctively done for millennia: foraging. Renowned Sunshine Coast chef and famous forager Nick Blake recalls the same childhood joy at receiving the fruits of nature’s bounty right where it was growing, rather than from a supermarket shelf. “I grew up in Fiji from the age of four and I used to go into the jungle with my mates, catch prawns and crabs, forage for chokos and tapioca down in the valley. Now my daughter, who’s almost three, loves it too,’’ he says. “I’ve taken her down the back garden and said ‘try this hairy watercress’. She chews it, thinks about it then spits it out and says, ‘I don’t like it Daddy’. Then she plucks something off the hedge and I say ‘don’t do that’ and my wife says ‘see what you started’. When I go off in the morning, she says ‘Daddy go forage?’” As the owner of Wild Forage Australia, Mr Blake spends two 13-hour days a week foraging around the Sunshine Coast for native ingredients with which to supply restaurants in Brisbane, Byron Bay and here on the Coast. Depending on the season and the location – coast or hinterland – he might pick ice plant, warrigal greens, sea spinach, sea celery, lemon myrtle, stinging nettle, watercress, rambling dock or spicy mustard leaf. He knows what to pick and what to steer clear of, having started his career with a degree in environmental management in New Zealand, before becoming a chef. He’s currently head chef at Mooloolaba’s Rice Boi, and has worked his way up from an apprenticeship at The Boat Shed in Cotton Tree, followed by Rickys in Noosa and a job as head chef at Wasabi, also in Noosa. But it was the time he spent working with acclaimed chef René Redzepi of Noma

– voted best restaurant in the world four times in the World’s 50 Best list – when Mr Blake really hit his stride. When the famous Copenhagen-based restaurant planned to open in Sydney, Mr Blake was chosen from thousands of applicants to work there. “I went to Sydney for three months and worked crazy hours,” he says. “I learnt everything about foraging. When I worked at Noma, René said when you feel like you’re tired keep working, that’s when the magic happens. “He’s one of the biggest mentors I’ve had; he really inspired me to get up and do something different. The whole idea of Wild

“I think it’s a great knowledge or skill set to pass onto kids. It’s an essential skill but we’ve forgotten about it” Nick Blake

Forage Australia started when I came back from Noma and I wanted to give back to the community. There’s a whole array of different cuisines up here. I wanted to do something authentic – you see food from Malaysia et cetera but we’re not really trying the seaweed from the beach in with the spanner crab and pairing it. It’s a very Noma way of thinking – just looking into the landscape and celebrating what we have here. “Foraging has been around for a while but it used to be seen as eccentric,” he adds. “René really changed things up and the foraged thing seems to be holding strong. It

anchors your food in time and place and seasonality. Chefs are now taking the time and energy to go out there. I think we have a bit more respect for the ingredient. You put a lot of passion into it because you want to get that wow factor out of it. Chefs are going the extra mile now and customers expect a more engaged experience.” Mr Blake acknowledges families are time-poor and the idea of foraging for food may appeal more to restaurant chefs than busy mums and dads, but he encourages people to give it a go. “I think it’s a great knowledge or skill set to pass onto kids,” he says. “It’s an essential skill but we’ve forgotten about it. Convenience has made us lazy. You can get anything you want from the supermarket. But more and more people are becoming interested in foraged food and what’s available in the wild. I’ve had families visiting from South Africa ask if I can take them and their kids foraging.” He does have a word of warning: “Never pick what you don’t know and never taste what you can’t identify.” Having put more than 5000 hours into foraging, he knows his stuff and has been brought on board as a curator of ingredients for visiting chefs taking part in the upcoming four-day food festival, The Curated Plate, which runs from August 5 to 18. “I will help chefs source things specific to the Sunshine Coast and give them a bit more of an understanding of the flavour of things I forage, which they will tie in with some of their dishes.” Mr Blake will join Clayton Wells of two-hatted restaurant Automata and Monique Fiso of New Zealand’s Hiakai for a forage-focused dining experience called A Regional Evolution at Mooloolaba on Saturday, August 10. This is one of many events happening across the Sunshine Coast as part of The Curated Plate’s inaugural year.

Sunshine Coast Council has endorsed a strategic business case for a new mass transit system to cater for a growing region. The strategic business case supports the need for a high-quality integrated public transport system, providing frequent and reliable services as a key driver for reducing car dependency and to support urban consolidation within the existing Urban Footprint and thus reduce the potential for urban sprawl. Transport portfolio councillor Rick Baberowski says they will complete a three-staged planning process. The Queensland Government has already agreed to contribute up to $7.5 million, to be matched by council.

Walk for Women’s Cancers is a family-friendly, fun-walk for people of all ages and abilities. The Sunshine Coast event will kick off at 8am on September 15 at Alex Skate Park. Register to take part in the three-kilometre or six-kilometre walks and you can enjoy a full line-up of activities including entertainment on the outdoor stage, market stalls and food vans. Come along and join in the fun, knowing that you are supporting this very worthy cause. By walking at this year’s Walk for Women’s Cancers event, you are helping fund research for lifesaving treatments and support programs that ensure nobody goes on a cancer journey alone. So dress up, bring your picnic rug and get the whole family to cheer you on. Visit for further information, or call the Sunshine Coast events co-ordinator Annelize van Niekerk on 5451 6010.

KAYLEE MCKEOWN SNARES SILVER IN SOUTH KOREA Cr Mike Cornwell from Fenland District Council in England, Alan Hocking and Mayor Mark Jamieson in 2016

World War II RAAF Pilot Officer Jim Hocking from Nambour has been honoured by the town of March in the United Kingdom. Pilot Officer Hocking made the brave decision to sacrifice his own life to save his crew and the residents of the town of March in Fenland, Cambridgeshire, 75 years ago, on July 28, 1944. The 21-year-old from Nambour was on his final training flight when the bomber’s engine caught fire. He ordered his crew to parachute to safety while he stayed in the Stirling bomber to divert it from crashing into the town and killing hundreds of people. Pilot Officer Hocking was posthumously awarded the Australian Bravery Award the Star of Courage for his actions, accepted on his behalf by his brother Alan. The brave pilot has not been forgotten in Nambour either and details of his gallantry are on display in the Nambour Museum’s Remembrance Room, and his service medals are prominently displayed at the Nambour RSL.

Sunshine Coast swimmer Kaylee McKeown won a silver medal in the women’s 200-metre backstroke at the World Swimming Championships in South Korea on the weekend. The 18-year-old secured the silver with a personal best time of two minutes, 6.26 seconds. Miss McKeown was strong throughout the championships, where she was a member of the Australian Dolphins squad, placing equal fourth in the women’s 50-metre backstroke final and fifth in the women’s 100-metre backstroke final. Her next challenge is the inaugural International Swimming League, which runs from October to December, as part of the Rome-based Aqua Centurions squad.

A Sunshine Coast man who spent a week oblivious to the fact he was a millionaire after winning division one in Monday Lotto, says discovering the news had made his life. The Queensland entry was the only division one winning entry nationally in Monday and Wednesday Gold Lotto draw 3888, drawn Monday, July 22. The entry scored the guaranteed division one prize of $1 million. He spoke to a Golden Casket representative on Monday morning, saying: “I was about to say you’ve made my day, but you’ve actually made my life,” he exclaimed when contacted to confirm his win. The million-dollar winning entry was purchased at Mountain Creek TSG and shop owners Paul and Carlie Dicello say they are thrilled to know one of their customers became a millionaire.

RECORD TOURISM FOR SUNSHINE COAST The Sunshine Coast has recorded the highest number of visitors in Tourism Research Australia’s latest National Visitor Survey across eight different categories. The survey shows that for the year ending March this year visitor expenditure increased by 22.7 per cent, with tourists spending $2.5 billion in the Sunshine Coast economy. The region’s total visitor numbers reached 3.9 million, an increase of 15 per cent. The Coast also achieved record results in holiday visitor numbers, business and intrastate visitors.

STEPPING INTO A BRIGHT FUTURE As STEPS Group Australia celebrates 30 years, My Weekly Preview reflects on the work that has been done and the lives enhanced by the organisation.


very special milestone is being celebrated by STEPS Group Australia as it marks three decades of providing support for the Sunshine Coast community. The occasion was marked in style at the STEPS Grand Winter Ball on July 27, and My Weekly Preview connected with STEPS managing director Carmel Crouch to find out more about the organisation and where she sees it heading into the future. Ms Crouch says from the outset, STEPS has been committed to helping people with a disability find work, as well as teaching employability skills, and working to educate employers and change perceptions about employing people with a disability. “It was important to us that our children had the opportunity to work in mainstream employment, offering their unique skills and abilities to succeed in the role,” she says. “STEPS still provide disability employment services and last month we were proud to be awarded the National Disability Services’ Open Employment Excellence Award for our work in helping people experiencing mental illness and addiction back into employment, and in

Ms Crouch says several years ago, STEPS Charity was established to fund projects that “fill the gaps”, providing support to those in need where there was no support or government funding allocated. The STEPS client base is now diverse and includes Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people, refugees and migrants, youth and long-time unemployed, people with a disability, illness or injury, and people living with autism and mental illness. Ms Crouch says STEPS now employ 254 people around the country, including 159 on the Sunshine Coast and operates in 45 locations around Australia. While the team, which includes 177 volunteers, has experienced many successes in the past 30 years, one most dear to Ms Crouch is the creation of the STEPS Pathways College, which is an Australian first and provides young adults with a disability the opportunity to learn the skills needed to live independently. “The college has been a long-held dream of mine and to see it running and our first group of students successfully graduating,

getting jobs and moving into their own homes is just amazing for me to watch,” Ms Crouch says. “Probably the most poignant moment or experience has come from the support of the community to build STEPS Pathways College. Before then, I had always worked with passionate people and collaborated with like-minded organisations. “But to have so many individuals and businesses in the community get behind this project and share in our vision for the college was really special. The generosity of the community and their passion to be a part of creating change has been quite humbling.” The Grand Winter Ball is one of the organisation’s largest fundraisers, but Ms Crouch says there are a number of businesses and individuals who support initiatives and the college through corporate partnerships and their workplace giving programs, and the need for donations and volunteers is ongoing. Having established an incredible service based on the Sunshine Coast that is now having a national reach, Ms Crouch says the STEPS team is driven to continue to listen to the needs of the community and find innovative solutions that “fill the gaps” in the support that’s available to those in need. “Our commitment is to make a difference by providing opportunity and by that, we mean to continue to create opportunities that promote equality, independence, and improved quality of life for all Australians. “In the short term we plan on expanding STEPS Pathways College to provide greater opportunities for young adults with a disability to realise their life goals.”

Taking a stand Rachael Brown’s true crime podcast has not only garnered awards for the quality of its journalism, but it has also sparked legislative reform and changed the lives of victims of crime. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

BC investigative reporter Rachael Brown has achieved every journalist’s dream – to work on a story that leads to real change. A story that, without her tenacity and dedication to the pursuit of truth and justice, would likely have been forgotten about, at least by police and the public. But there are always people who never forget. People like Mark and Adam James, who were 13 and 11 when their mother Maria was murdered in a Melbourne bookstore in 1980. It’s for them Ms Brown has worked tirelessly over the past three years to produce her Walkley Awardwinning podcast Trace and her subsequent book, Trace: Who Killed Maria James? published in July 2018. As the ABC’s first true crime podcast, it exceeded all expectations and led to the Coroners Court of Victoria reopening the coronial investigation on November 30 last year. It also contributed to legislative reform to allow findings made under the previous Coroners Acts of 1958 and 1985 to be set aside to enable the re-opening of historical investigations in light of new facts or circumstances. “This has exceeded even my lofty expectations for the podcast, to have an

inquest called because of the strength of the work the ABC put into the podcast,” Ms Brown says. “I think its phenomenal. “When I started out in journalism 17 years ago, that’s what you hope for – to effect change. Then you find out it’s not that easy. To have sparked this as a journalist is incredible. “What I wasn’t expecting was to see this groundswell of support. We got hundreds of emails and hundreds of leads. “To watch how invested strangers were in the lives of Mark and Adam James and the desperate desire to help, I thought, imagine what we can accomplish when audiences are so invested? I really hope crime-fighting organisations can see this power.” Public interest in the case is still high and while Ms Brown has moved on to other stories, not a day goes by that she doesn’t feel the urge to keep pursuing leads. However, she is under instruction to halt her work while the case is re-investigated. The coronial brief was due on May 29 but has been extended to January 30 next year, which is proving frustrating. “The brothers are pretty anxious,” she says. “I speak to them all the time… I’m just worried people will die; people are getting older. I’ll

kick myself if someone holding the missing puzzle piece dies.” Trace famously exposed the failure of police to question key suspects in the murder of Ms James, who had discovered her younger son Adam was being abused by the local priest Father Anthony Bongiorno. She had planned to confront him the day she was brutally stabbed to death. A witness saw the priest covered in blood around the time of the murder. A second priest, Father Thomas O’Keeffe had also molested Adam. Neither priest was interviewed by police at the time of the murder, with no explanation given. Police also bungled DNA evidence and while the podcast’s revelations proved embarrassing for authorities, Ms Brown believes the success of Trace could lead to more effective collaboration between investigative journalists and police – if the will was there. Detective Ron Iddles assisted Ms Brown in her investigation, but she says he was retired and had the freedom to do so. Others weren’t so helpful. “I didn’t get anyone on tape that’s in the force currently, bar one detective and that was for a separate matter. I’ve tried and tried to stress the importance of [police] trying to seize the audience mobilisation – they can tap into four million homes. But the thinking is still, they know best. They see us as outsiders and sometimes as meddlers. I appreciate cases are sensitive and I respect

that, but they should at least consider there’s room to work with journalists.” Ms Brown says while it’s not her job to point the finger at anyone, she believes the information she has uncovered reveals the strongest motive for the murder was a coverup for paedophilia. “I need to stress there might be other names in the cold case box we haven’t seen,” she says. “There might be other names in there that might be equally suspect. It’s important as a journalist doing a cold case podcast that we don’t point the finger at anyone because a defence barrister could use it.” Ms Brown is looking forward to meeting Sunshine Coast locals and sharing her incredible investigation when she speaks at Venue 114 in Bokarina next week. “I’ll be talking about the importance of covering stories like this both forensically and compassionately because there are real families at the heart of these stories. A line I heard at an American conference was, ‘be a storyteller, not a story taker’. It’s Mark and Adam’s story, not my story. My job was to get justice for them.”

Family flavours The GrowCoastal Food Innovation Accelerator Program helps Sunshine Coast foodies like Joseph Shaich Yusuf. WORDS: Nicole Fuge.


oseph Shaich Yusuf from Falafel Baraka learned the art of cooking from his mother. “Growing up in Jerusalem, my yama, my mama, was always roasting spices, fresh from the market,” he says. “Cumin, coriander, paprika, black pepper, mama dry-pan roasting them one at a time,

their individual aromas filling our home, feeding my senses, making my mouth water. “These spices, roasted one at a time, were set aside in preparation for her making her traditional falafel mixture. Chickpeas were soaked overnight, onion and parsley were carefully washed and added into the blender

with the soaked chickpeas. Her final addition was a touch of celery before the roasted spices were mixed in,” he says. “This falafel mixture was set aside for hours and hours in the fridge, for the flavours to blend together … a Middle Eastern sensory experience.” After leaving Jerusalem and moving to Australia in 2005, Mr Shaich Yusuf yearned for his mama’s cooking, particularly her homemade falafel, and so he began making his own. For years, his friends suggested he share these Middle Eastern flavours. With his Australian wife Alicia by his side and drawing on her 15 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, Mr Shaich Yusuf made the decision to leave the construction industry and launch his business in 2011, not long after their daughter was born. Unfortunately it proved too difficult to crack the markets in Sydney and the idea was temporarily shelved, until they moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2016. Falafel Baraka offers Middle Eastern street food, where the hero is the tasty traditional falafel, which is also complemented by a range of dips, and sweets such as baklava (layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and honey) and ma’amoul (a pastry

or cookie made with dates and nuts). “Our falafel and dips are plant based and serve the current trend towards gluten-free and vegan,” Mr Shaich Yusuf says. “There are no additives, no colours and no preservatives. Just fresh wholesome produce sourced from local growers.” His cooking is bold, yet refined, a product of his parent’s passion. “Joseph’s culture and family are very food orientated – Joseph’s father, Ahmed, used to have a side business selling falafels from a street cart in his home town,” Mrs Shaich Yusuf says. “In Joseph’s culture, food is everything, not only to fuel bodies but an integral part of the social fabric. Simple yet good food is valued, and fresh, seasonal ingredients are often the hero of the dish. This also means the food is healthy and full of flavour and that is what Joseph wants to share – his love of good food and good health to help people be the best they can be.” You can find Falafel Baraka at the markets at Yandina, Peregian Beach, Coolum and the Nambour night market. Mr Shaich Yusuf has been working on the growth of his business as one of the 13 participants in this year’s GrowCoastal Food Innovation Accelerator program. Applications are now open for the 2020 GrowCoastal program, subject to support from funding partners in 2020. To find out more go to

Coolum & North Shore Coast Care volunteer Sherida Holford and Sunshine Coast Council officer Kate Hofmeister transfer a container of Loggerhead eggs from Mudjimba Beach.

Endangered loggerhead turtle nest found in winter First recorded winter nesting on Sunshine Coast.


history-making discovery was made along Mudjimba Beach recently by Coolum & North Shore Coast Care (CANSCC) volunteers and Sunshine Coast council officers. The unusual findings were tracks in the sand from an endangered loggerhead female turtle, and – to the surprise of council officers and volunteers – an out-of-season turtle nest.

Council conservation officer Kate Hofmeister believes it’s the first recorded turtle nest during a winter season. “An out-of-season loggerhead nest is scientifically remarkable,” Ms Hofmeister says. “Due to the unique timing of the nest’s arrival and that it’s the first on record along the coast, perhaps even for the entire east coast loggerhead population, the State

Government asked that we incubate the clutch.” A clutch refers to the nest of eggs, and as council’s TurtleCare program operates under permit from the Department of Environment and Science, the team immediately sought direction from the State Government’s top turtle researcher, Dr Col Limpus. Kate’s colleague Dr Simone Bosshard shared the advice from Dr Limpus of how they would proceed with this unusual finding. “Dr Limpus recommended incubation while we wait to see if the eggs are viable,” says Dr Bosshard. “If they remain in the sand for a further 48 hours, they would all perish due to the cold temperatures. “We will monitor the eggs over the next several weeks, and later this month, we’ll know if they are viable and developing, or not.” Prior to knowing if they are viable, the team needed to transfer the eggs from their sandy nest to a safe, climate-controlled incubator. So on Tuesday, July 23, again with CANSCC volunteers who have been integral to this process, the team carefully transferred the clutch’s 93 eggs to containers prepared with moist sand, and then transported them to council’s Maroochydore Depot where finally the eggs were successfully transferred to the incubator. Dr Bosshard expressed the team’s excitement and anticipation about the eggs’ future. “If we’re lucky enough, once all the hatchlings are out of their eggs, they will then be released back at Mudjimba Beach to start their long journey in the ocean,” Dr Bosshard says. “But for now, we wait.” Visit council’s ‘news section’ on our website at to see a video of the eggs being transferred.

FROM THE MAYOR There’s a lot to be excited about on the Sunshine Coast right now. Last week our council unanimously agreed to proceed to the next phase of the business case for a mass transit system that will provide a much-needed public transport solution as our region continues to grow. On top of that, our International Broadband Submarine Cable Network project is about to hit an important milestone with fibre network installation soon to be underway between the coastline and Maud Street, Maroochydore. And I’m looking forward to officially welcoming residents to the first stage of the new Maroochydore City Centre at People’s Day on Sunday August 10, from 11am. Our new city centre will be Australia’s first truly smart CBD to be built from the ground up. Our council is at the forefront of thinking outside the square and pursuing opportunities to generate sustainable employment growth and better facilities and services for our residents, helping us to continue to be Australia’s healthy, smart, creative region.

Mark Davidson, Ord Minnett Buderim.



e have long been of the view that the Australian dollar (AUD) should depreciate against the US dollar (USD). The main reasons are as follows: Widening Australia-US interest rate differentials – Australia’s central bank appeared more likely to cut rates, while the US is raising theirs. Dovish language at the upcoming US Fed meeting is a near-term risk to our view of a weaker AUD, but ultimately we expect interest rate differences to be maintained, capping the AUD/USD. While the US Federal Reserve could do two ‘insurance’ cuts in the second half of 2019, we expect this to be followed by two more rate cuts from the RBA in the first half of 2020. On a net basis, this outlook would leave the spread between the RBA cash and US Fed funds rate spread unchanged in 12 months, in other words the RBA cash rate should still be 1.25 percentage points below the US Fed funds rate, and in the past this gap has been consistent with a weaker AUD. An increasing tax gap – capital shifting away from countries with higher corporate tax rates, such as Australia. A weaker domestic economy – consumer spending and housing activity

were slowing. Over the next four years, Scott Morrison’s package of personal tax cuts alone would lag the stimulus achieved under Howard and Rudd, unless supplemented by further interest rate cuts. To achieve its inflation and employment objectives, we estimate the RBA may need cut rates to as low as 0.5 per cent, supporting the above view around interest rate differentials. In addition, any boost to the economy from tax cuts could be transient. The government could afford to fast-track its plans around tax cuts and infrastructure given the budget windfall from higher iron ore prices, but has so far resisted doing this. Trade tensions – the risk is that an escalation in the US-China trade war would see a shift from commodity currencies with linkages to China, such as AUD, towards defensive reserve currencies, for example US dollar or Japanese yen. Without any formal trade deal, uncertainty will likely persist, which warrants keeping a defensive currency stance rather than accumulating high beta ones like the AUD. Both sides have an incentive to come to an agreement. US president Donald Trump will want to take a deal to the 2020 election, while China will want to avoid additional drags on growth. However, the prolonged and unpredictable turns that talks have taken to date have cast more doubt on whether a trade deal is possible. In our opinion, increases in iron ore prices would not be sufficient to outweigh these headwinds. In 2018, the AUD/USD exchange rate fell 10 per cent, one of the largest annual declines since its float in 1983, and finished the year at US70.4 cents.

FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD WORDS: Aydan Rusev. In recent years, the Sunshine Coast has become a major competitor in Australian agriculture as we continue to provide healthy food to thousands of people around the country. The Curated Plate and Venue 114 are taking this a step further with the Women Leaders in Food and Agribusiness event, which will bring industry professionals together to explain the processes that occur between pasture and plate. This event, headed by three leading women in the industry, will bring education, conversation and great food together on August 10. Cyndi O’Meara of Changing Habits, Sandra Gosling of COYO and Emma Greenhatch of the Food & Agribusiness Network all come from different backgrounds in agriculture and will be sharing some of their own personal

experiences and philosophies from working in the industry. There will also be conversations about the sustainability of business ventures in the industry and discussions around successful strategies.

The event is on August 10, 11am at Venue 114. Tickets are $30. For more, visit

ACCC PROPOSES MORE SCRUTINY OF TECH GIANTS Google and Facebook will face greater scrutiny of their use of Australians’ personal data amid a range of reforms the Federal Government is considering. The competition watchdog has released a report at the end of an 18-month inquiry into digital platforms, with 23 recommendations covering privacy, media regulation, competition and consumer protections. The government will consult with stakeholders over the next three months and act on the recommendations by the end of the year. “Make no mistake, these companies are among the most powerful and valuable in the world,” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says. “They need to be held to account and their activities need to be more transparent.” The Australian Competition and

Consumer Commission (ACCC) found a very serious issue in the sheer volume of personal data being collected without informed consent. It recommends setting up an enforceable privacy code specifically for digital platforms. The watchdog also recommends a code of conduct be established to address the commercial imbalances between the tech giants and media companies. Any code of conduct would have to be approved by the regulator, which could impose its own rules if it isn’t satisfied. Other recommendations include a $50 million annual grants program to support local journalism, support for philanthropic backing of journalism, and having a mandatory take-down system for copyright breaches. – AAP 07 5475 7272 26 My Weekly Preview | August 2, 2019

HAPPY TEETH Brushing our teeth. It’s something that humans have been doing for centuries. However, if you look at how dental hygiene products have evolved over the past millennium, you won’t find much difference between the sticks and animal hair creations used by cavemen, and the toothbrush sitting in your bathroom today. Introducing the Unobrush, an eco-friendly, anti-cavity toothbrush reimagining that does the job that most traditional cleaning methods can’t achieve, in a mere six seconds. The product, which launched on Kickstarter last October, has raised nearly $4 million over multiple crowdfunding websites. Its revolutionary design promises to reach and clean 99.9 per cent of the mouth and is proven to be more effective than standard teeth-cleaning practices. For that pearly-white smile you’ve always dreamed of, look out for the Unobrush, which is set to go on sale this August. Visit

Sami Muirhead talks babies, breakup songs and Bindi Irwin’s engagement as she reflects on another week of pop culture.

Candice Holznagel calls for more kindness and consideration in our treatment of each other and says good manners never go astray.


est part of my week? Reading that Bindi Irwin is engaged! I love a wedding and how exciting for the next chapter of Bindi’s life to be starting. The conservationist has said her brother will walk her down the aisle because it is what Steve would have wanted. As if that didn’t send me running for the tissues, then I read another long-time favourite Aussie also has good news. Natalie Imbruglia has announced she is pregnant. The stunning actor issued a statement saying a sperm donor is the reason behind her miracle pregnancy. I am really happy for her – she helped me through some rocky times 20 years ago with her songs. Remember when the now 44-year-old Aussie singer played Beth Brennan on Neighbours? In real life Natalie later married Daniel Johns from Silverchair, but after five years they split up and ever since, Nat has been almost a recluse in London. I personally like to think Natalie and Kylie Minogue are shopping at Portobello Road together and going back to their cute English manor, where they indulge in Vegemite toast and a cup of Milo. Natalie’s song Torn was a bit of an anthem for my best friend and I in our early twenties. Remember Nat singing those lyrics with her cropped pixie haircut? It spoke to my soul. Then she gave us the best breakup song ever with Big Mistake. The other amazing breakup song of the era was of course, You Oughta Know by

Alanis Morissette. Oh the memories I have of young men looking terrified as they stampeded off the dance floor as circles of young women flocked together in a circle to dance around their handbags and scream the angry lyrics as we clutched our West Coast Coolers. It was the best breakup therapy ever if you had been ditched. Alright, let us continue with our gossip session because I am truly enjoying it. We have a new Bachelor called Matt Agnew, so prepare yourself for scantily clad women

“It was the best breakup therapy ever if you had been ditched” falling over themselves to bag the man of the moment. The three judges of MasterChef have been axed. I would love to know what went down there. J-Lo turned 50 and looks 20. Kylie is also 50 and looks 20. She has the number one album in the United Kingdom and Australia. Go girl! Madonna is wearing some strange pirate eye patch all the time. Pink has an amazing new album out and Ed Sheeran has a rock song called Blow. Keanu is cool again and Alanis Morissette is expecting her third child at aged 44. She and Natalie will no longer be angry rockers but mellow mums. Now that is a mum’s club I would love to be in.

wo weeks ago, my son was enjoying a scoot at the local park. It was a sunny winter’s day and the blue skies had drawn out a number of young pre-school aged children. A small boy, around the age of two, tumbled from his bike. Knee scratched, and tears running, he wobbled to his feet, eyes searching for his mum. Instead, he faced a group of older high school students. They laughed, pointed, made fun. They took the opportunity to make this innocent little boy feel smaller than he already was. His worried mother made the decision to speak up on behalf of her child: “Please don’t laugh at him. He’s only a little boy.” The teenagers unleashed, spewing ugly words at this poor woman. “Shut up you fat cow.” Their words were hurtful and unwarranted. It calls into question, what are we teaching our children? Where has common courtesy and kindness gone? Perhaps I’m old fashioned, but in our house we encourage the use of manners. Sure, kids will be kids, and as a family we have our ups and downs. But, we talk about kindness and self-worth daily. I am not an authoritative figure on politeness, nor do I claim to be. I am also realistic, and know that we will never live in Pleasantville – who would actually want to? This is simply the observation of a woman who wants her child to grow up in a positive environment. And, of a woman who misses manners.

What happened to letting someone with fewer groceries in front of you in the checkout line? Or, helping a struggling mother get her pram up some stairs? When was the last time you offered your chair to someone, or offered a sincere thank you to the teacher who watches over, and educates, your child? So, what’s the cause in the decline of courtesy? I can hazard a guess. Life is busy, bringing with it impatience and frustration. We are constantly rushing – to work, to school, to sports practice. The list goes on. We are self-focused and those traits reflect onto our children. Technology has its role too. Smartphones have instilled a sense of urgency – everything we need is in the palm of our hand. Anonymous keyboard warriors dish out hatred via social media. Our choice of media has also changed – clickbait is front and centre, reality television basically celebrates nastiness. All of these things drive our thought patterns. According to Time magazine, studies show rudeness spreads virally, almost like a common cold. If you witness it, you are more likely to be rude later on. Scientists have described rudeness as a neurotoxin, and once infected we become more aggressive. What we can do is take control and make a conscious decision to be kind, yet assertive. Call it out – if you witness rudeness, speak up. Together as a community, we can make a difference.

ustralian country music icon John Williamson is smearing a layer of cement on top of a pizza oven he is building on his Gold Coast hinterland property as he speaks casually on the phone with me. It’s this salt-of-the-earth persona that has resonated with generations of fans, who are drawn to Mr Williamson’s dulcet tones and innate ability to connect through storytelling. There is no hint of ego from the ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, who has won three ARIA awards, 25 Golden Guitars and numerous MO and APRA awards. He has also released multiple platinum and gold albums and has more than four million album sales under his belt. “My music has always been about

everyday Australians and the things we go through. It’s about celebrating how lucky we are to be Australian really, it’s something none of us should take for granted.” On September 5, Mr Williamson will play on the Sunshine Coast as part of his latest tour, which celebrates the release of his 52nd album, Butcherbird. He’ll perform hits from his back catalogue but sadly, says IN THE it might be his last show here. “I’m starting to slow down on the touring, but the audiences are so beautiful and when you get so many nice comments about how my songs have helped them or shaped them, it’s really hard to walk away from that.” Visit

OPERA’S FASCINATION WITH DEATH IS BROUGHT TO LIFE The brand-new touring work from Opera Queensland, Songs to Die For, is making its way to the Sunshine Coast. It’s a cheeky, celebratory and ultimately reverential look at opera’s relationship with the art of dying. Songs to Die For is directed by Opera Queensland’s artistic director Patrick Nolan and stars leading artists soprano Rebecca Cassidy (pictured), mezzo soprano Jessica Low, baritone Jason Barry-Smith with musicians Scott Saunders and Trevor Jones. It weaves together some of the great operatic death scenes from Purcell to Wagner, with contemporary pop songs from artists like Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain. Mr Nolan says Songs To Die For reveals that a great song speaks to the soul regardless of when it was written. Songs to Die For is on at the Events Centre, Caloundra on August 4 at 2pm.

The writer takes an ATV tour of the island

Another day in paradise

Tangalooma Island Resort is the place to base yourself while you explore Moreton Island, a veritable paradise that’s easily accessible to Sunshine Coasters craving a nearby getaway. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.


cling to the side of the boat, feet firmly planted on its surface, camera at the ready. I refuse to again be distracted by the squeals of delight and excitement permeating from the other side of the catamaran. The 20-strong crowd is enamoured by two calves who are responding to the attention. I hear the water spray from their blowholes, their hauntingly beautiful calls echoing from the ocean. I hold steady at the empty rail. I will not miss the whales this time. My determination and patience is soon rewarded, an elusive creature parting the deep-blue ocean with a jaw-dropping breach. She is even larger than I could have imagined, and just as I am recovering from the beautiful sight, she concludes with a joyful tail slap. As quickly as she appears, she is gone, her footprint leaving the choppy water smooth as

glass. We are in luck today, notching up 22 humpback whales during the three-hour cruise. Considering July is quite early in the season – the whales are still on their northern journey – we have had an exceptional experience. As the captain calls it a day and the boat begins the short journey back to Moreton Island, I sit and take in the view. As the third largest sand island in the world, Moreton is something special; a beautiful combination of white sand hills, craggy outcrops and native bushland. How it has taken all of my 35 years to find this paradise is beyond me. Soon, the sprawling Tangalooma Island Resort emerges. Consisting of a few select apartment blocks, dining precinct, and the beach, the resort is simple. And, it is perfect for this island.

Disembarking from the boat, we are greeted by Tangalooma’s friendly staff before being ushered into our home for the night – a tropical-themed resort room with five-star views across the bay. It is the ideal spot to watch the rich, burnt-orange sunset behind the backdrop of Brisbane city. As night falls around us, we celebrate today’s successful cruise with a nightcap at the resort’s only bar, and chat excitedly about the day ahead. In their wisdom, the team behind Tangalooma Island Resort has created a holiday spot that suits all budgets, ages and tastes. If it’s relaxation you seek, they have the answer in the way of eco-walks, massages, easy kayak tours and of course, the beautiful beach. Meanwhile, for those chasing an action-packed adventure there are helicopter rides, parasailing and ATV (all-terrain vehicle) tours, the latter which caught our attention. What better way to start your Sunday than with a fast-paced, adrenalin-pumping cruise around a stunning island? It has been at least 15 years since I last sat behind the steering wheel of an ATV, but as I pull on my safety helmet, I can feel that old excitement seeping through. Within moments we’re off, trailing our instructor up the winding paths, and around the specially-designed course, to the top of the island. As we slow our bikes to a stop, and take in the turquoise and deep-blue palette below, my heart flutters. Not from the rush of driving, but at the beauty that lies in our own backyard. *The writer was a guest of Tangalooma Island Resort.

GETTING THERE The Tangalooma Island Resort Ferry Terminal is located at Holt Street, Pinkenba, which is about 100 kilometres from the Sunshine Coast. Holiday transfers and day cruises depart at 7am, 10am, midday and 5pm daily. Travel time is around 75 minutes. A return trip for resort guests costs $84 per adult, $46 for a child aged three to 14, and infants are free. An open-air, secure car park is available for guests at the wharf and costs $15 per vehicle per day, or $60 per week. For a VIP experience, helicopter transfers are available and start at $880 for a one-way transfer for up to three people. STAYING THERE Located an easy 75-minute catamaran ride from Brisbane, Tangalooma Island Resort is a simple, family-friendly resort. Beachfront accommodation ranges from three-and-a-half to four stars. Budget rooms start at $159 a night and range up to the $459-a-night deluxe beachfront villas. One-bedroom family suites with kitchenette are priced from $289 a night. We stayed in the comfortable three-and-a-half star resort room (priced from $239), which boasts a kitchenette and stunning beach and pool views. Holiday home rentals and apartments are also available. In addition to the sprawling beach, there are two outdoor pools, a playground and barbecues. EATING THERE Resort guests have access to a range of eateries including the Beach Cafe, Beach BBQ (serving up delicious steaks), The Coffee Lounge and the unique Fire and Stone, which blends modern Australian fare with traditional Asian cuisine. B&B’s Bar, with its comfy couches and stylish fireplace centrepiece, is the perfect place to unwind after an action-packed day.

Twenty-seven inspiring business women will be celebrated at the 21st annual Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network awards.


ore than 280 people will come together on August 9 to celebrate the 21st annual Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network’s Business Woman’s Awards Night Gala. My Weekly Preview is once again proud to be the media partner for the event, which recognises the success of the region’s women in business. The awards have attracted the best of the best across five categories including Young, Corporate, Micro Small, Sustainable and Professional. In addition, one finalist will be named the 2019 Outstanding Business Woman of the Year – a title which last year was presented to Kendall Morton of Home

Who inspires you? Being able to visit my customers in their homes and discuss their healthcare needs is a privilege. Many are in their eighties and nineties, still living at home and caring for themselves. They inspire me to be healthy and independent, and I love that I am able to help them do the same.

What advice would you give to other women starting out in business? It takes hard work and determination to survive when running your own business. You need to make sure you have strategies to deal the ups and downs. Listen to advice and ask for help. Build a team that believes in your vision and complements your skills. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome? Going through a divorce with two young children and trying to run two pharmacies. Name the key factors for your success: Determination. Having a great team sharing my vision. My family – they are always there to support me and offer words of encouragement. What’s the best thing about your job? I love being able to help people improve their health through the advice I give.

EMMA GIBBONS Huds and Toke Who inspires you? My mother has been one of my biggest inspirations – with her entrepreneurial skills, drive, intelligence, work ethic and empathy.

Over the last few weeks, you’ve had a rough time with relatives, but this week something fortunate could fall into your lap – perhaps money, property, possessions, an inheritance, a freebie, a job offer, a tax break or some other sort of lucky opportunity.

Opportunities to travel and/or study look promising this week as the stars stimulate your innate curiosity. The sun/Venus/Jupiter links are especially positive for social media connections and interpersonal relations as you talk and tweet.

The planets promise a boost to finances and an increase in cash flow, but be careful you don’t cancel that out by indulging in a spending spree! Under the influence of lucky Jupiter, it is a terrific time to apply for a job or spruce up your workspace.

The stage is set for a potentially lucky week, so make the most of it. The sun, Venus and Jupiter activate your adventure zone, so start planning your next trip. However, moderation and common sense fly out the window as you party to the max.

Coupled Capricorn – love and lust are in the air, so plan something suitably romantic and seductive. Are you single and looking for love? With the sun, Venus and Mars visiting your intimacy zone, you need to be romantically proactive.

The stars highlight your Aquarian love life as Venus and Jupiter put Cupid on call to pay you a visit. If you’re attached, it’s time to organise a romantic rendezvous. Singles… it’s the perfect time to refresh your online profile or go on a first date.

The sun, Venus and Jupiter bless a career move, a professional idea or a start-up. There’s one proviso though… your heart must be in it. If you’re just going through the motions, it will affect the quality of your work and success will be fleeting.

THE TIME IS RIGHT With conditions just right for buying, first homebuyers are being urged to get out to open homes and step onto the property ladder now.


illennials and younger first homebuyers are being urged to get off the sidelines and seize their opportunity to buy now, before the Federal Government’s First Home Loan Deposit Scheme starts on January 1, 2020. “We have record low interest rates and more cuts on the way, APRA [Australian Prudential Regulation Authority] has reduced serviceability buffers, there are

significant numbers of first homebuyers finding the confidence to enter the market from January next year.” The Government’s First Home Loan Deposit Scheme will be available to 10,000 would-be homeowners in 2020, however, the chances are high that many first homebuyers will miss Paul Angell out on the scheme before the end of February 2020. “By the time buyers are certain that house prices have returned to growth, which usually takes at least three or four months, substantial stamp duty concessions the price of an average home may have risen available, and the Federal Government’s by 20 to $30,000 or more,” Mr Angell says. five per cent deposit scheme is just months “And by then, we’re into December, away from implementation,” says First when the number of homes for sale usually National Real Estate Coastal principal reduces substantially. Buyers that already Paul Angell. have their deposit saved, but who are waiting “So, with Sydney and Melbourne’s for prices to stop falling, are likely to be met housing markets having recorded their first with significantly greater competition and months of growth since the market peak therefore higher prices in the New Year. in 2017, and the rate of house price falls in APRA’s loosening of lending rules has other capitals clearly slowing, we will see

made it certain that more borrowers are now qualified for bigger loans.” Mr Angell says he doesn’t anticipate sudden changes in property prices between now and the end of the year, but some economists are already suggesting Australia’s housing market may finish the year with prices between three to five per cent higher than they were in January. “For those that are ready to buy now, my recommendation would be to not hold back,” he says.

WHY FIRST HOMEBUYERS SHOULD ACT NOW • We have record low interest rates. • More interest rate cuts are tipped for the near future. • The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority has reduced serviceability buffers. • Substantial stamp duty concessions are available. • The Federal Government’s five per cent deposit scheme is just months away from implementation.

llure Mooloolaba is now complete with residents preparing to move into their new apartments in the coming weeks. A mix of local, interstate and international buyers have purchased apartments with many moving into an apartment for the first time. Located at the northern end of the Mooloolaba strip and within a short stroll to Mooloolaba Beach, the residences offer quality finishes in a small boutique complex and are close to all of Mooloolaba’s retail and dining amenity. Built by renowned local developer/ builders Squire Developments, the apartments have been architecturally designed by OGE Group and offer spacious open-plan living with an abundance of natural light. Floor-to-ceiling balcony doors maximise integration between the interior and the natural surrounds. All apartments are appointed with quality fixtures and fittings and ducted air-conditioning throughout. Energy saving aspects include LED lighting and solar panels to assist with powering the heated indoor/outdoor pool. Body corporate fees are reasonable and

there is onsite management. Residents have secure undercover parking with storage available. At this stage there is a choice of three two-bedroom apartments still available, which offer a choice of either stunning views or expansive outdoor living/ As a bonus, each of the remaining units have built-in basement storage and window coverings. Also, for the month of August, the developer is offering to install a new furniture package or to pay the stamp duty on any purchase. With limited opportunities to purchase a brand new apartment in Mooloolaba both now and in the future, Allure Mooloolaba presents an investment opportunity for savvy buyers.

osaic Property Group founder Brook Monahan and cofounder Dave Handley were joined by Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson and councillor Jason O’Pray at an official turning of the sod ceremony to celebrate the commencement of construction on Avalon by Mosaic. The multi-residential $106-million development located on Duporth Avenue in Maroochydore comprises 86 apartments across two boutique luxury buildings, along with a range of six-star amenities including a ground-floor artisan café, extensive health and wellness facilities, private pontoon access, resort pool and an exclusive concierge service. Avalon boasts a prime, north-east facing position directly on the shores of the Maroochy River. Mr Monahan says the event marks a watershed moment for Mosaic, being the group’s fourth development on the Sunshine Coast, and first for Maroochydore. “This is a proud and significant moment for us, being years in the making and positioned on such a historically significant site,” he says.

“We have worked exceptionally hard to ensure Avalon is a legacy development for Maroochydore and indeed the region.” “Over 70 per cent of Avalon has now been sold, an incredible result at this stage of the project. Its high-end residential appeal, six-star amenity, and an incredible location have been extremely attractive to purchasers, who we would like to thank for helping us realise this achievement.” Mr Monahan says Avalon will create significant employment opportunity and drive economic growth for the area.

Feel at home with...

“Avalon will deliver over 500 jobs over the course of construction and we are committed to ensuring that at least 80 per cent of trades are sourced from the region.” Mayor Jamieson says it is great to see the project underway. “Developments such as Avalon are a great benefit to our community and support the strong vision we have for the Maroochydore and the Sunshine Coast as a true, world-class destination. “For a project of this magnitude and complexity to get to this stage is the result of

an enormous amount of work and I share the passion and the genuine excitement of Mosaic in turning this vision into a reality. “I congratulate Mosaic on their ongoing commitment to the Sunshine Coast and also to the buyers who have chosen this benchmark development. I look forward to seeing it come to life.” Officially launched in late 2018, Avalon has garnered strong ongoing interest from local and interstate buyers. Limited opportunities remain. New apartment releases include two-bedroom apartments starting from $560,000 and three-bedroom from $922,500. Avalon by Mosaic is due for completion in early 2021.

with MWP’s man in the water

So my little wave-hungry friends, did you all get your fill last weekend? How good was it! And, those who had Monday off scored deluxe! Sadly, the devil has come to pay us a visit with onshore winds this weekend. Of all the things he could bring to make life a little more interesting, he brings us onshore winds! Fear not my saltwater creatures, there is good news on the horizon. The following week is looking epic! Actually, I cannot see that far ahead, but it is good to be positive. Have a great weekend and remember Neil Young’s famous words… Keep on rockin’ in the free world!
