THE FIRST WORD
The Wharf Mooloolaba and SEA LIFE are gearing up to celebrate their 30th birthday later this month. The Wharf is hosting a weekend party on August 24 and 25 with a wide range of fun activities including face painting, live music and a jumping castle. Grab the family and head on down for a day of fun. To celebrate, we have the ultimate prize to give away to one lucky reader. It includes a SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast family pass with a behind-the-scenes experience, a Whale One family pass for whale watching and a $100 dining voucher for The Dock Mooloolaba. The prize is valued at $469.
FROM THE EDITOR
fondly remember the first time we visited The Wharf Mooloolaba. The tourism precinct, complete with Underwater World, was only a few years old. It was an exciting experience for a young kid from a small rural town. As time passed, and our family continued to visit the Sunshine Coast for holidays each year, we often paid Underwater World a visit. Looking up at those marine creatures gliding over my head in the ocean tunnel, never grew old. I have many fond family memories, particularly of times spent there with my beautiful dad who would love sharing stories of his fishing adventures, and his knowledge of the marine life. We would laugh together at the seal show, marvel at the sea creatures and share hot chips and ice-cream. These are the kinds of memories that I hope to pass on to my own child. We have been visiting Underwater World (now called SEA LIFE) regularly since he was born. It is a great sensory and learning experience for his young mind and we still have new discoveries each time we visit. On reflection, it’s hard to believe that it has been 30 years since the precinct first opened its doors. So many families have passed through the doors and created their own memories. To celebrate the upcoming anniversary, history writer Dot Whittington has penned a beautiful story about those early days, which I hope you enjoy reading. It’s on page 22. Perhaps the story will conjure up your own special memories. Enjoy.

BEHIND THE BRAND Where do you live? Sydney, but I do spend a lot of my time on the Sunny Coast. First job? I worked for the ABC in Sydney. What are you currently working on? The Sunshine Coast, of course! We’ve been launching our inaugural food festival The Curated Plate. My goal is to make Sunshine Coast and ‘brilliant food’ synonymous. Your family includes? My wife and two children, plus two children from my first attempt at marriage. First car? I’m not sure it would get up the hills of the Blackall Range, but it was a Morris 1100S. I stress the ‘S’, though it certainly didn’t mean ‘Sleek’. Favourite book? John Fowles’ The Magus. It taught me many life lessons, the biggest being, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” If your life was a book, what would be the title? Can I say The Happy Hookers? I had a wonderful all-female team at the Accor hotel group and we were known as the Happy Hookers (their boss was a Hook, after all). We were certainly happy!
Peter Hook BIO
Peter Hook was born in the UK before he moved to Australia, where he worked in media before transitioning to promoting tourism and hotels. He worked at Accor Hotels for 18 years, then set up his own PR consultancy in 2013 with a group of hotel and tourism clients, including Visit Sunshine Coast. Mr Hook has been responsible for developing corporate and brand reputations for some of Australia’s most respected organisations.
Your greatest regret? Marrying too early (the first time) – 30 should be the minimum age. What achievement are you most proud of? I’m not just saying this because I work for the destination, but before joining Visit Sunshine Coast I had been coming up to the Coast for more than 20 years and couldn’t understand why it wasn’t regarded in the absolute top-tier of destinations. The mission isn’t complete, but I think we’ve taken giant leaps towards greater recognition.
“Be prepared to make mistakes rather than not take a (sensible) risk”
Favourite song and why? I was once thrown out of Beatle George Harrison’s property in Esher, but despite that I can’t go past his magical songs While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Here Comes the Sun.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? Taking the giant leap into setting up my own consultancy. We all fear the unknown, but my first client was Visit Sunshine Coast and six years later I still love every day working with the team to promote the destination (PS, it sells itself!).
When was the last time you played sport and what was it? I love cricket. I was best known for my captaincy – let’s face it, Captain Hook sounds right. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Maleny Botanic Gardens. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? Getting people to understand that you can have tourism development and respect for the environment in the same package. Best day in your life and why? Any day that offers something fulfilling.
What frustrates you the most? Interminable meetings instead of action. How do you deal with your frustrations? Walking. It doesn’t matter if you walk the same route a hundred times, there’s always something to discover.
If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? My son is 18, and he doesn’t listen (much), but the biggest thing would be to be prepared to make mistakes rather than not take a (sensible) risk. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? George, Paul and John, of course. Ringo could make the drinks. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I’ve been looking at some properties in the hinterland, but not sure a million would cover the cost. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Earl Grey tea. NRL or AFL? I love the football that’s played with feet (not hands).

SCHOOL of rock The Eumundi School of Rock is gearing up for its first live performance at the 2019 Horizon Festival, a 10-day arts festival featuring more than 100 events and performances from August 23 to September 1. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
he Eumundi School of Rock class of 2019 are preparing to bring the house down as they take to the stage for their first and only live performance at the 2019 Horizon Festival. The 2019 program is set to take over the Sunshine Coast from August 23 to September 1 in a celebration of visual art, music, words and ideas, art, tech, film and much more, with more than 100 events and performances on offer. Among the events kicking off the festival for opening weekend, School of Rock is the brainchild of award-winning artist Katie Noonan. Twenty talented young musicians from years three to eight are provided with a scholarship that connects them with seven weeks of one-on-one mentorship with some of the Coast’s most accomplished professional musicians, including Owen ‘OJ’ Newcombe of John Butler Trio fame, Mark Moroney, Andrea Kirwin, Clint Francis and Zac Hurren. This year, musical director Brett Newman will bring the students together as a band to perform a stellar line-up of Australian hits from the classic AC/DC song Back in Black to Kate Miller-Heidke’s single Caught in the Crowd, Silverchair’s Straight Lines and Gotye’s Feel Better. “This is our fourth year and we’re going from strength to strength, the quality of the kids we are getting through the school is increasing and this year we had 50 kids audition for 20 spots,” Ms Noonan says.
12 My Weekly Preview | August 9, 2019
“I 100 per cent believe in the importance of music education for kids and I think in more regional areas, unfortunately fewer kids have access to quality music education and what better way to give them that opportunity than to start our own school and connect them with working musos who can inspire them? “Moving into band mode is always a highlight for us and for the kids. There is
“Obviously I’m biased in that I’m a musician and I believe that music is the most accessible form of expression, the most inclusive and welcoming. The program that has been created this year is amazing.” “The biggest challenge for any regional area, particularly the Sunshine Coast, is being so spread out. By the time I drive to the Caloundra Regional Gallery from my home in Eumundi, I’ve spent the better part of an hour
“There is something magical about being in a band, that collective feeling of everyone working towards a goal…” Katie Noonan, musician
something magic about being in a band, that collective feeling of everyone working towards a goal and my favourite outcome is to see the sense of confidence, sense of self-belief and sense of worth that transforms our students during the process. They are connected with people they might not otherwise have met and make lasting friendships in this wonderful community.” Ms Noonan says festivals like Horizon are integral to every community and she is pleased to see the Sunshine Coast Council continuing to be a firm supporter.
and that’s a massive footprint. Anything that can bring this diverse and wonderful community together in hotspots where we can make and enjoy arts and culture together and build connection, is incredible. “I am proud of the council’s commitment to the arts. In terms of the bigger picture in Australia, I still don’t think we realise how integral the arts are to us as a people. “Financially, the economic return is enormous, but the intangible assets of the arts and how they make us better people isn’t as widely recognised.”
Festival director Zohar Spatz says this year’s program has been designed to connect and inspire. “The 2019 program was developed to celebrate our community identity and sense of place by showcasing the region and bringing light to individual and collective stories and ideas,” Ms Spatz says. “I have loved every minute of curating this program as the festival director, taking all of the various art forms and showcasing them on the Sunshine Coast. For me this year, it was incredible to explore the identity of the Coast as it grows and turns into such a significant region. We are ready to celebrate what a beautiful region it is to live in and all of the incredible people who make it such a connected and welcoming place to be.” With a program that stretches from the hinterland to the headlands and beaches, the festival will take over the emerging Maroochydore City Centre, transforming the space from construction site to the thriving creative Horizon hub. Festival Central, which is located on the corner of First Avenue and South Sea Islander Way, invites you into the Coast’s future city to explore and enjoy parts of the 10-day program of free entertainment including Stalker Theatre’s Mountain, a stunning aerial theatre performance with cutting-edge interactive technology, plus creative workshops, live music, pop-up galleries and delicious local eats. With more interactive activities and myweeklypreview.com.au

performances than ever before, Ms Spatz says there are plenty of opportunities for people of all ages to immerse themselves in the festival, which has become a signature arts and cultural event for the region. An array of Coast artists and performances sit alongside national and international offerings, encapsulating the growth of the festival. The international highlight of the 2019 program is the Australian premiere of The Cold Record by Rude Mechs from the USA. The one-man show 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 love punk rock. The program also features work by identities like Jack Charles, Alice Skye, Dave Hughes, Tommy Little, Michaela Gleave and Louise King. “Artists who don’t live on the Coast are actively seeking an opportunity to come back here and as soon as we launched applications for this year’s festival, Dave Hughes and Tommy Little were straight onto us to come and perform their comedy shows,” Ms Spatz says. This year’s festival also lines up with a national arts conference, which is being held at The Events Centre in Caloundra, with 350 Australian arts presenters and producers taking time out to enjoy the festival. Itineraries have been created on the Horizon website for easy reference to what is happening near you. Arts Portfolio councillor Rick Baberowski says,“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. “I’m so impressed by the incredible workshop program, its expanded range offers an opportunity for people of all interests and ages to dive into this exciting wave of coastal creativity.” To see the full program and purchase tickets, visit horizonfestival.com.au.

NOCTURNE – CLASSICAL MUSIC UNDER THE STARS Renowned Eudlo cellist Louise King has created the perfect way for classical music enthusiasts and those new to the genre to enjoy a concert under the stars. Nocturne is the third event Ms King, the founder of Cello Dreaming has produced specifically for Horizon, having created eloquently unique offerings every year since 2017. “What I love about Horizon as a festival is that it covers so many incredible artists and so many different forms of art, it’s like a smorgasbord of events,” she says. “Classical music has so many pieces that have been inspired by night time, the stars and moon.” Under the baton of artistic director Ms King, the Sunshine Coast Chamber Orchestra and a host of guest artists including Graeme Jennings and Caroline Henbest will perform, along with members of Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Youth Orchestra and the Young Conservatorium, Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra Chamber Strings and the Cello Dreaming Youth Excellence Ensemble. They will bring music by Mozart, Borodin, Piazzolla, Boccherini, Dvorak, Fauré and Tchaikovsky to life. Nocturne Classical Music Under the Stars is on August 30 at 7.30pm at Festival Central on the corner of First Avenue and South Sea Islander Way, Maroochydore City Centre.

The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi
A blend of conquerors and influences This grand Hanoi hotel has hosted presidents and folk singers and withstood invasions and war to stand proudly today, as welcoming as ever. WORDS: Caroline Berdon, AAP.
awn bleeds with the people here and morning skies are red. As young girls load up bicycles with flowers for the dead.” American singer-songwriter and anti-war campaigner Joan Baez wrote these words in Hanoi in December 1972 as American B52s pounded the Vietnamese capital with 20,000 tonnes of explosives. Huddled with petrified locals in a bunker underneath the capital’s Grand Hotel Metropole, Baez recorded her song, Where Are You Now, My Son? As I stand in the dark, concrete confines under the hotel, I try to imagine those long, loud nights almost half a century ago. Up to 40 terrified people bundled together in here, listening to Baez singing. Today’s Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi now offers daily tours to its excavated

underground shelters, only rediscovered in 2011 during renovations. I’m struck by the lack of malice towards the US by our local guide and the Vietnamese in general. They look back in peace but are far more focused on the future. At times, the hotel has housed Vietnam’s invaders; since opening in 1901, it has been under French, Japanese and Chinese occupation. Since the end of the ‘American War’, it has been a haven of luxury and peace. Just weeks before I arrived in June, the hotel welcomed President Donald Trump and North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un for a two-day summit (their entree, foie gras apple compote, is still on the menu). Renovated in 2009, the Metropole still revels in old-world elegance. It still serves up fine French food in Le Beaulieu restaurant, as well as Vietnamese fare in Spices Garden and
Italian in Angelina. A melange of travellers, locals and guests sip cocktails at the poolside Bamboo Bar, or chat over coffee on the Terrasse under spinning bamboo ceiling fans whipping up the humid air. In the cosy salon de conversation, they relax on comfy sofas with a whisky or book in hand. The design is classic French, with touches of Vietnamese style. Much like Hanoi itself. The Metropole is nestled in the city’s Old Quarter, where bakeries serve up baguettes and croissants, the locals love a good coffee, and narrow buildings with long, shuttered windows open up onto elegant balconies. Hanoi became the capital of French Indochina one year after the Metropole opened. In 1905, there were around 2660 French civilians living in the city. But Vietnam has long reconquered Hanoi, its frenzied streets roaring with motorbikes seeming to make up time previously wasted to war. The Communists may still be in charge, but the country’s economy is resolutely capitalist. Today the Old Quarter buzzes with knock-off merchants, street food stalls and craft beer terraces. Farmers hawk produce, the older generation practice tai chi at dawn and everybody stops at the day’s end for tea and noodles. Hanoi has always been a hub for travellers too, passing through on their way to Halong Bay. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1994, Halong Bay is northern Vietnam’s number one tourist destination: 1550 square kilometres of emerald waters housing close to
2000 towering limestone pillars and tiny islets, topped with thick jungle. While the Metropole now offers a five-star sanctuary from bustling Hanoi, Halong Bay seems to present a peaceful escape from daily life. I stand in the sun on the deck of Paradise Luxury run by Paradise Cruises, the most decadent fleet in the bay, and breathe out as we drift past lush islands dotted with waveand wind-eroded grottoes. Despite its beauty, this place is suffering from its own form of colonisation. Every day over 5000 tourists cruise through Halong Bay. During our two days in the bay we visit Tung Sau Pearl Farm and Sung Sot Cave, and hike up the hill of Soi Sim Island to enjoy panoramic views of Halong Bay before taking a dip in its warm waters. From my ocean bath I gaze at the immense limestone domes. They’ve stood for millions of years, their grandeur making Vietnam’s long list of invasions seem petty. But each conqueror of this enticing country has left its mark, just as tourists do today, in ways good and bad. And all these layers of influence seem only to have strengthened the Vietnamese with resilience, ambition and pride. The writer was a guest of Jetstar, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi and Paradise Cruises.

PERFECT WEATHER SHINES ON MARATHON The Sunshine Coast put on a stellar winter weekend for the Sunshine Coast Marathon Festival, with thousands turning up to compete and spectate across a range of events throughout the weekend. In the women’s division, Lydia O’Donnell (pictured) blitzed the course, breaking the record by one minute and 20 seconds. The New Zealand 29-year-old made it through the course in two hours, 41 minutes and 11 seconds. Leah Fitzgerald and Kathryn Smyrneos rounded out the top three. In the men’s division, Japan’s Saeki Makino crossed the line in two hours, 16 minutes and 18 seconds, beating the course record by more than two minutes. Nick Earl and Dion Finocchiaro placed second and third. There was a hiccup on the course of the half-marathon event, with defending champion Jack Rayner being disqualified after being led the wrong way by police five kilometres into the race. Despite crossing the line first, the win was given to Kevin Batt, with Louis Mcafee and James Coleman making the top three. In the women’s half-marathon, Lisa Weightman, Sinead Diver and Ellie Pashley made the podium.
SUNSHINE COAST LIBRARIES IMPROVING KIDS’ LITERACY The results are in, Sunshine Coast Council Libraries contributed to improvements in early literacy skills of children on the Sunshine Coast. In 2012, the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) results indicated children in Queensland were falling behind other states in language and cognitive skills. Queensland ranked sixth in the country and was four per cent below the national average. Following investment in the First 5 Forever program, Sunshine Coast Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay says the latest AEDC results show a 1.8 per cent decrease in the number of developmentally vulnerable children on the Coast since 2012.

MADE WITH LOVE Palmwoods’ Kelly Forster remembers her husband Andrew every time she sews a scrunchie. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
young family is sewing their hearts out to raise awareness for brain cancer patients as well as keep the memory of their late father and husband alive. Kelly Forster and her three daughters Lani, nine, Ayla, seven, and four-year-old Maddison have spent countless hours sewing hair scrunchies and head wraps since February this year and have raised $3500 for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and Bloomhill Cancer Care. Ms Forster, who is a talented seamstress and creates unique children’s clothing through her brand Alani Designs, says her girls have fully embraced the initiative, which they have called Scrunchie Heaven. Lani and Ayla use a sewing machine to help their mother create the scrunchies and head wraps, while Maddison has taken on the role as chief packager and post office assistant. The Palmwoods family has made more than 1000 scrunchies and head wraps and show no signs of slowing down. The awareness drive started when Ms Forster purchased some fabric printed with the brain cancer ribbon to create outfits for her daughters after her husband Andrew lost his life to the disease. She saw that scrunchies were making a comeback and decided to raise money by using the leftover fabric. Ms Forster says life without Andrew is still hard, but her girls are her purpose and they talk about their father every day as well as enjoy things that he loved, like four-wheel driving and camping. The first sign the family had that something wasn’t right was when Andrew, who was 38, suffered a seizure at work in
Andrew Forster with his daughters Lani, Maddison and Ayla 2017 while they were living in New South Wales. “He thought he had suffered from a stroke and he got to a doctor and was sent for an emergency CT scan, where they found a tumour on his brain the size of a 50-cent piece,” Ms Forster says. “It was on June 6 that he was diagnosed with stage-four brain cancer and on June 20 he was operated on in Sydney to remove the tumour and they did a pretty good job, but started radiation and chemo to get the remaining bits. He tolerated that well and we went travelling to South Australia and spent three weeks in a caravan exploring the Great Ocean Road.”
Five weeks before the diagnosis, they had bought a home in Palmwoods and decided they would still move up once the school year had finished. “We always remained positive and stayed strong,” Ms Forster says. “We knew we could never beat this, as there was no cure, but we really thought he would have at least three to five years. It was only 16 months later he passed away.” It has been 10 months since they lost Andrew and Ms Forster admits that every day is a struggle. “The girls were able to be included in the whole process and able to say goodbye properly. They were not one bit scared and were so brave the entire time,” she says. “We still have our sad days, and of course the nights are the hardest. But the next day, you wake up and put your big girl pants on and carry on. I am fortunate that I have so many friends and family there for support.” Ms Forster says Bloomhill Cancer Care has been an immeasurable support for her family. And for now, the Forster family continues to raise awareness through Scrunchie Heaven.

HELP IS AT HAND WHEN IT ALL GETS TOO MUCH Businesswoman Natalie Tink opens up about anxiety and how the B-Well and Prosper program has helped. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
hose who meet Natalie Tink are quickly swept up in her warm and welcoming presence. She has a way of connecting with people who have the utmost confidence in themselves and their business. But the managing director of popular accessories boutique Miss Monogram recently began opening up about her personal reality – one of extreme anxiety – as she became a staunch supporter of Sunshine Coast Council’s B-Well and Prosper online portal. The free resource connects small business owners and their employees to information on how to establish healthy workplaces, manage stress in the workplace and how to recognise and manage employee burnout. Mrs Tink describes herself as having “highly functioning anxiety,” which means that although she may appear outwardly calm and collected, her anxiety could be triggered by stress, or extremes in positive or negative emotions. “I can publicly cope with anxiety, but internally I start breaking down,” she describes. “I might go three months or more without having any anxiety attacks and then suddenly, I would be effected for an entire month. The worst thing is that I don’t see it coming, so it’s not manageable.” Having suffered from episodes of anxiety even as a child, Mrs Tink says it was manageable until she joined the workforce. “I am more open about it now, but when I was the national advertising director for Coast to Coast Media, I would go to an event and people would ask how I am. I’d worked with some of them for 20 years and they were people I knew as more than
Natalie with her husband and two children just colleagues, and I would still say everything was great and wonderful when really it wasn’t. It would eat me alive and at times, I found it impossible to breathe because I felt like a fraud,” she says. “When I opened my first shop at the Sunshine Plaza, I had three months of solid anxiety. Most mornings I found it difficult to breathe as I served my first customer of the day.” Mrs Tink was among the first businessowners to try out the B-Well and Proper portal when it was released late last month. She says the team who designed the program did an incredible job of making the information easy to read and accessible. “I love the way that they explain things and how they break it down so no matter what you are going through, whether it’s cash flow stress or just feeling alone, you can access this
information confidentially in the privacy of your own home and the information on the portal will give you some guidance and direct you to further support if you need it,” she says. “We have six staff members and this is something we have already made accessible to them. “It is designed for anybody in small business, whether things are going good or they’re not so good. It’s great peace of mind to know that you’ve got the tools there if you need them.” The council’s economic development and innovation councillor Stephen Robinson says smaller businesses often don’t have the budget to invest in stress, wellbeing and mental health support for themselves or their employees and can feel isolated because of that. “Council is proud to be working alongside local wellbeing expert Aaron Williams, founder of Mindstar, and corporate partners to deliver this introductory support portal. “Running your own business can be hugely rewarding, but for many small and medium-sized business owners, having sole responsibility for the business’s success or failure can take its toll. “This is an important first step to provide support to our local business community and to connect them to further resources if they want to seek additional guidance.”
B-Well and Prosper is proudly supported by My Weekly Preview. You can access the portal free at bwell. mindstar.com.au.

THE MAKING OF A LANDMARK It’s been 30 years since The Wharf precinct and Underwater World first offered a thrilling, world-class experience to visitors in Mooloolaba. My Weekly Preview looks back at the way it was. WORDS: Dot Whittington.
The Wharf today Inset: The beginnings of Underwater World in the late ’80s
t was December 1988, and Queensland was reeling from the ongoing revelations of the Fitzgerald Inquiry. A year earlier, Caloundra’s Mike Ahern had accepted the poisoned chalice of the state premiership but, amid the political furore, had the much more pleasant duty of officially opening The Wharf at Mooloolaba. Nine months later, Underwater World, where you could “go scuba diving without getting wet” was ready for its first visitors. The enterprise was to change the face of the Mooloolaba Spit. It was first announced in September 1987 that state cabinet had approved a $4.5 million aquarium on a lease of 3000 square metres of Crown land opposite the Coast Guard headquarters. The original proposal also involved a backup plan: if the spit site didn’t work out – at the time controversy was running high over development of the area – an alternative was opposite the Mooloolaba Hotel (where the Mantra now stands). “The total structure would be built
Underwater World opened in 1989 beneath the present grassy knoll and cover the area between the caravan park and the new council car park,” the proposal stated. The hotel has long since disappeared but at the spit, The Wharf and Underwater World – renamed SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast in 2013 after a $6.5 million upgrade – have become well-established landmarks about to celebrate their 30th birthday. Although it was originally hoped to capitalise on visitors arriving for Expo 88, it was soon realised this wouldn’t be possible and Underwater World opened at the end of September 1989, nine months after The
Wharf. The project ended up costing double original estimates at $9 million. But the Sunshine Coast had “a tropical oceanarium which is the largest in the southern hemisphere and one of the world’s best”. “Centrepiece is the 80-metre clear acrylic tunnel which winds its way through a vast underground tank allowing visitors to experience the thrill of face-to-face encounters with the bold and beautiful dwellers of the sea,” the opening crowd was told. “A moving pathway glides through three separate marine environments.” It was exciting stuff. The moving walkway gave 180-degree views as it wound through a dark rocky reef for shellfish and crustaceans, the bright colours of a coral reef and the predators tank for sharks and stingrays. On opening day, I was the proud holder of ticket No. A001, and a few years later had the pleasure of dining in the acrylic tunnel, although it was tricky swallowing seafood with all those fish floating around. And many a young Sunshine Coaster will remember the thrill of a sleepout in the tunnel surrounded by sharks, as a highlight of the school year.
Next door, The Wharf brought a whole new experience to Mooloolaba, and was also creating memories. Its designers said: “This multimillion-dollar tourist facility is built on timber piles out over Mooloolaba Harbour, in the style of a turn-of-the-century dockyard.” And they waxed lyrical about its allure for both residents and visitors: “From the harbourfront boardwalks to the old-world charm of the fine emporiums which display everything from local crafts to high-tech kites and fashion, The Wharf is a place to browse, to buy something different or just sit and watch the boats plying the river.” In the wake of Expo, there were also entertainers wandering the precinct. It was certainly ahead of its time. Remember Murphy’s, the harbourside licensed family restaurant, Pier One for fine a-la-carte seafood dining, and Prego’s Coffee House under the tower? In the mix of shops was a Kodak minilab, which was a big deal in the days before mobile phones gave instant photographs. At its opening, Friday’s was listed as “a waterside beer garden, cocktail bar and night club” but it was as the latter that it became the go-to entertainment venue for a generation conceived around the same time as The Wharf project itself. There was scuba training in a tank on site, paraflying, the Top Deck amusement centre and a carousel, and when Underwater World put in the seal stadium, it ranked as one of the best in the country. It’s all a long way from 1890, when William Pettigrew built a wharf, timber depot, store and two houses at Mooloolah Heads, which was renamed Mooloolaba in 1920.

Lost boy found Actor Jack Charles is putting his troubled past behind him, but his role as an activist and educator might be his most difficult. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
he most admired people in the world are those who have risen above seemingly insurmountable difficulties to find redemption, going on to share their wisdom with others in need of solace. Australian actor Jack Charles is one of those people. A member of the Stolen Generations, he was snatched from his Bunurong mother at the age of just 10 months and raised in the Salvation Army Boys’ Home in Box Hill, Melbourne. The only Indigenous child there, he was sexually abused and grew up knowing only abuse and neglect, rather than love. Deeply traumatised and damaged, he became an alcoholic and a heroin addict, a homeless man on the streets of Melbourne,
thieving to support his drug habit. He went to jail 22 times and was convicted twice as many times for burglary and drug offences. It wasn’t until he saw himself in the eye-opening 2006 documentary Bastardy, that he completely turned his life around. “Through Bastardy I learnt the lesson of being upfront and honest with yourself,” he says. “I’ve put it in the past now, but I never forget it – my past miserable behaviours.” Those “past miserable behaviours” – and their causes and cures – are the subject of his new no-holds-barred memoir, Born-again Blakfella, which he’ll discuss when he visits the Sunshine Coast. “This book has many stories of my life,” he says. “I’ve had some extraordinary experiences. I’ve had to council
myself since the age of 14 and I’ve had to discover things for myself. I’ve led myself down the garden path, sometimes down the wrong track. “I’ve always been a good person, but that last jail sentence in 2004, I had an epiphany. Aunty Lorraine Peeters came in with a program I undertook. It awoke within me a sense that I did have some power.” When Mr Charles talks, he barely takes a breath, skipping through time to different eras in his life, as if he’s following a timeline of sadness and trauma, rather than chronology. He recalls a day that was a major turning point in his life. He’d been living with a foster mother by the name of Mrs Murphy from the age of 14, while he completed an apprenticeship in glass bevelling. His fellow workers at the glass factory knew he had been questioning Mrs Murphy about his family. She told him repeatedly he was an orphan. One day, his fellow workers cajoled him into catching a tram to Fitzroy, where he was ushered into the Builders Arms Hotel by the local Indigenous community. “Everyone raced up to introduce themselves. One lady said, ‘your mum, she’s livin’ up in Swan Hill, you should go up and see her’. I get home late that night to Mrs Murphy on the doorstep. She’s pretty pissed off with me. I say, ‘joy oh joy, I found mum’. “I expected her to share my joy because we had been discussing it over the years. She said, ‘no, those people are lying to you, get to bed’. I got very angry. I raised my arm – I see the fright in her eyes. I was going to hit her. I put on my pyjamas and then I was called to the front door. Lickety-split, I was driven over to the Royal Park home for juvenile offenders. That woman called me disobedient and unruly. For the first time I was locked alone in a cell. I remember crying myself to sleep and then began a series of incarcerations.” After completing his apprenticeship at the age of 19, he went to Swan Hill and found his mother, Blanche Charles. “It was very difficult to meet my mother. She had been
alone there and seemed to be ostracised by the rest of the blackfella community,” he says. “I remember the policeman saying ‘Jack, you’re playing the prodigal son. It would be best if you take your mum a carton of Melbourne Bitter. Your mum likes to drink.’” As sad as his stories are, when you have a yarn with Mr Charles, you end up laughing. He’s a real character and a born performer. Famously, he was involved in establishing Indigenous theatre in Australia, co-founding Nindethana at The Pram Factory in Melbourne in 1971. And now, having sorted himself out, he wants to use his platform to help change attitudes towards Indigenous Australians. “All governments through the ages have flatly refused to place Aboriginal education onto our state school’s curriculum,” he says. “It’s too hard for them. We’re not ready yet to have this conversation, even today. “Each state has its own unique history of invasion – not allowing Aboriginal people to have land, right back to the 1700s. The point is, my responsibility is to try and educate. We should have truth and reconciliation bled onto our state school’s curriculum. “The governments aren’t ready – left wing, right wing, all the colours. None of them are ready. I get invited to private schools and jails and people see me as ridgy-didge, an elder statesperson. They like to hear what I gotta say. My job is to remind them Australia has a unique history. “It’s only us in the arts – we’re the ones that have been bringing elements of history onto the stage. Lots of schoolkids are coming to see the performances, but that’s as far as it goes. I’d like to see the conversation taken further.”
“I’ve always been a good person, but that last jail sentence in 2004, I had an epiphany”

YIELD PLUS GROWTH MAKES TOLL ROAD OPERATOR TRANSURBAN ATTRACTIVE
rd Minnett has recently reinstated coverage on Transurban (TCL) with a Buy rating and a 12-month target price of $16.75. Transurban is an Australian company that builds, owns and operates toll roads in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as in the US and Canada. It has the largest portfolio of toll roads in Australia. Our in-depth analysis highlights the extent to which Transurban’s assets generate traffic growth at a faster rate than the economic growth of the states in which it operates. We see the following factors as tailwinds for Transurban, which make us comfortable placing a Buy recommendation on the stock.
initial yield for Transurban at the time of writing is circa four per cent.
DEBT SERVICEABILITY AND CREDIT RATING Debt serviceability is expected to decline in the next two years, but we expect a relatively quick improvement after that. We do not expect to see any change in the company’s credit ratings (BBB+ by S&P, Baa1 by Moody’s).
ORD MINNETT VIEW
We see Transurban as undervalued and attractively priced compared to other stocks in our broader coverage of real assets. We estimate the stock is trading at an implied leveraged internal rate of return of nine per cent (post tax), with an ungeared return on capital of 6.5 per cent (post tax). In contrast, Sydney Airport (SYD, Hold) is trading on a 5.5 to six per cent return on capital (post tax), and Australian property trusts are trading at a six to 6.5 per cent return on capital (pre-tax). In our view, Transurban has less regulatory risk than airports and less cyclicality than real estate, and so should be valued at a higher multiple. As always, we strongly recommend you consult with your professional advisor before making any investment decisions.
Over the FY19–25 period, we estimate free cash flow will grow at eight per cent per annum and Transurban’s distributions will increase by six to seven per cent per annum. We also factor in ongoing capital releases and forecast tax expense to normalise from FY23, which will create a drag on earnings. The

TRAFFIC GROWTH The three key markets of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane represent 85 per cent of Transurban’s business, and our analysis shows traffic has grown well above gross state product (GSP) growth. In fact, if we remove the impact of road widenings and extensions, we estimate traffic has grown at 1.3 times GSP growth. Looking forward, we forecast TCL’s traffic growth will average about three per cent per annum.

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME
THE BOOKS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE
Sami Muirhead is feeling nostalgic as her youngest child turns five and she realises they haven’t yet had time to jump in any muddy puddles.
Richard O’Leary asks which book changed your life and reveals the three that changed his, still influencing him to this day.
y youngest baby turned five last week. I cried. And cried. Not in front of him. Not in front of anyone in fact, not even my husband. But in the car right after we had a blissful birthday morning of feeding the birds at the Palmwoods Duck Ponds and going to the bakery to pick up morning tea, I sat there as big fat salty tears rolled down my eyes. I had just dropped my cheeky son to kindy and hopped in my car to go to work when the tear machine kicked into overdrive. Next year he will be at school for his birthday and I will not be able to have a morning of adventures. Next year he will have someone else who will probably be a bigger influence than me when it comes to his learning. We still have not done half the things I have always wanted to do, such as catch a train from Gympie to the Coast and jump in muddy puddles. You are in one of two camps when it comes to your kids’ birthdays: you think nothing of it, or you spend the week leading up to the big day looking at Facebook photos and wondering nostalgically how on earth that little baby has grown up so very quickly. I am really lucky to have three kids, as some of my friends never got their wish to have children. Other friends have lost their children. I would have loved more kids. I am not sure why it is so emotional for me when they turn another year older. Maybe I am plain bonkers. Maybe it is the mortal clock
ticking a little louder, reminding me we are all heading for the golden sunset at some stage. I mean death, not a great bar for happy hour. Or maybe it is because we know these little beings are ours for such a short time that it is bittersweet. I don’t know how on earth you let children go and face the world as they grow up and leave home. All I know is, I get really melancholy around their birthdays and want to freeze time. My five-year-old, Augie, slept in the hallway the night before his birthday. I found him on the cold floorboards with a pillow under his head and a blanket he had thrown over himself, sucking his thumb and clutching his tattered Batman toy. We scooped him up and placed him back in his bed. The next morning I asked him why he had set up camp on the floor. “I wanted to get a head start on the day,” was Augie’s adorable and earnest reply. Indeed, he lives life at full pace and makes his mum’s heart burst with pride as he scampers from dawn until dusk, full of energy. So perhaps he is the teacher in our relationship and we need to live a little more in the moment each day because 2020 is speeding at us all like a Japanese bullet train. So my goal for the next five months is to get a headstart on most days and suck that beautiful marrow out of life. And maybe I will wag school with him the day he turns six next year and we will go on a grand adventure indeed.

hich book has changed your life? A question that is sure to prompt a wide range of answers, depending upon
who you ask. The Bible. The Chronicles of Narnia. The Kama Sutra? So I was interested to pick up The Book That Changed My Life – 71 Remarkable Writers Celebrate The Books That Matter to Them. I half-expected a few titles to dominate – and there were the usual suspects: The Catcher in the Rye, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare and The Great Gatsby – but only a couple of books were mentioned twice. None thrice. It was interesting to work through the list – and remember this is not the author’s favourite book but the one that changed how they looked at the world. Kate Atkinson of A God In Ruins fame chose Robert Coover’s Pricksongs & Descants because it reminded her that books should be fun, not just educating the reader, but entertaining them as well. Atkinson said “literature became a book again, a book with no boundaries.” The late US Senator John McCain opted for Hemingway’s classic about the Spanish Civil War, For Whom the Bell Tolls. McCain said the book’s hero, Robert Jordan, provided “a lesson on how a great man should live and die – a great man must always be his own man, and have the
courage for it, and he must die with style.” I wonder if this was what was going through his head when he gave his famous thumbs down to his own party’s attempted repeal of Obamacare? Pop culture aficionado Michael Stern adopted a more practical approach, selecting the Sear’s Catalogue because it opened a window on the world for him: “I relished reading about the material of lives that were nothing like my own.” And it was his first exposure to the female form.
“A question that is sure to prompt a wide range of answers” Inevitably, I asked myself the question at the top of this page – which book has changed my life? I couldn’t settle for one so I have cheated and picked three. To Kill A Mockingbird for giving me Atticus Finch as a male role model. George Orwell’s Animal Farm piqued my political consciousness, fertilising a healthy cynicism but hopefully not killing off all traces of idealism. Lastly – Peter Carey’s Illywhacker for reminding me that books are not only to be consumed, but enjoyed. Which books have changed your life?

The Delux Portofino umbrella from Daydream Leisure Furniture.
Right choice When it comes to selecting the best furniture for your space, there are three key points to keep in mind. The first is to consider the size of your outdoor space. Measurements are always good to have on hand when shopping for select pieces. Second is maintenance and care. Be sure to invest in furniture that will withstand the elements. Finally, take into account the location – is it sunny or shady? This will influence the types of materials you choose. For example, if it’s sunny, you may like to add a shade umbrella. We love the nature-inspired design and materials used in the Clarke Outdoor Collection. Pictured is the outdoor three-piece dining bench. It’s from Domayne.

The Sunshine Coast is a rare mix of acreage, mid-sized blocks and terrace courtyards. When it comes to creating the backyard of your dreams, no matter what the land size, there are plenty of ideas and options for all. A small space doesn’t mean that you have to shy away from a leafy paradise. While, a larger block doesn’t necessarily mean more work. It’s about forward-planning and creating a backyard that suits your needs. Whether you are time-poor or have a green thumb, there are plenty of inspiring ideas to get your garden growing.
Simon Van Roy’s top tips
Simon Van Roy of Manawee Garden Centre says outdoor spaces don’t need complex landscaping in order to be enjoyed. Sometimes the most simple design will be the one that makes your backyard shine.

Mass planting It doesn’t have to be a formal hedge, but growing large groups of a singular planting tends to be neater. It also means less maintenance. With flowering plants it also results in an impressive display when it comes time to flower. Meanwhile, with foliage plants, the style can create a great contrast against a wall, or just against another green backdrop For mass planting consider these varieties: Loropetalum ‘Plum Gorgeous’ (height to 1.5 metres) Rhapiolepis ‘Snow Maiden’ (height to 1 metre) Euphorbia White Sparkle (height to 50 centimetres) Alternanthera ‘Little Ruby’ (height to 50 centimetres) Evolulous ‘Blue my Mind’ (ground cover).
Layering Think about the shape and form of any garden space before you begin. Layering works well by planting taller options towards the back of the space and tapering down to small growing border plants in the front. This creates the sense of more space, and is a great technique to help with screening or hedging. Make sure to keep your plant species grouped together by their requirements – don’t plant high-water requirement plants alongside those that need a drier environment. Some tough and hardy companions for layering might include: Syzygium Resilience with Camellia sasanqua at the back and a mass of flowering salvia for a cottage style feel at the front. Radermachera ‘Summerscent’ with Ixora species at the back and a border of native Lomandra ‘Verday’ for a lush tropical effect.

Pots Often underused in landscape situations, pots are a great way to add to instant impact to a space. Don’t hesitate to use large pots in a small space. You may only need one or two of them, but it enables you to have a constant feature in a small space. The larger the pot, the easier it is to plant out, and to look after. Remember to consider the eventual size of the mature plant as many plants can’t live in a small pot forever. With the incredible range of lightweight pots, in a variety of colours and finish, there really is a pot to suit every space and taste.

IMAGE: CARPET COURT. STYLIST: HEATHER NETTE KING.
Celebrated interior designer Heather Nette King says with the introduction of modern-industrial design, gone are the heavy wrought iron bases and rough-hewn timbers the industrial look was known for. “The pieces are leaner, more lightweight, and can be layered with natural textures for a fresher, contemporary vibe,” she says. “As it isn’t as ‘hardcore’ industrial, it’s now much easier to create this look – it’ll work just as well in a contemporary space as it will in an older style home, and if you’re not lucky enough to have an exposed brick wall, this look will still work really well set against a white or black painted wall. “Seek out furniture such as coffee tables and shelving with slender legs and simple lines in mixed materials such as weathered timber and steel. “Scour your local second-hand shop for interesting, salvaged items, such as metal dining chairs or lighting – and don’t worry about the odd nick and scratch as they’ll only add character. “If you’re worried that the industrial look may appear a little cold, simply add layers to it with soft furnishings in natural textures and warm, earthy hues – think a beautifully aged tan leather sofa, cosy woollen cushions and throws, and a plushpile rug underfoot – all in tones of chocolate, rust, olive and stony grey.”

BE COLOUR-SAVVY: A pale floor will visually open up a small room, while a darker colour will make it feel cosier. CREATE FLOW IN AN OPEN-PLAN ROOM: Match the colour of your carpet, floorboards or tiles for a seamless connection between the different zones. THINK BEYOND STRAIGHT FLOORBOARDS: A chevron or herringbone-patterned timber floor will add character and subtle texture to a room scheme. GO HYBRID: Love the look of timber but worried about using it in a wet room? Consider a waterproof, timber-lookalike flooring such as Hybrid. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPORTANCE OF UNDERLAY: It reduces noise levels in a room (this is particularly important for apartment living) and can extend the life of your carpet by up to 50 per cent.

On Wednesday, the sun and Venus encourage you to make a wish list of your goals for the future. The full moon also stimulates your peer group, hopes and wishes zones, so make sure you surround yourself with people who encourage your talents.
You have ambitious professional plans and goals for the future, but sometimes you hold yourself back for fear of looking foolish. This week’s stars encourage you to be confident and proactive as you reach for the stars.

With the sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars visiting your job zone, dynamic and decisive action is required at work. If you procrastinate and dither around, lucrative opportunities and important connections will promptly pass you by.

MUDJIMBA HOME SALE SHOWS HOW IT’S DONE The sale of this home exceeded all expectations thanks to a smart marketing campaign that covered all bases. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
ith the Sunshine Coast property market ticking along at a comfortable pace, it is still important to take a serious look at the way you market your home when you list it for sale. For North Shore Realty Marcoola principal agent Keith Blanchard (pictured), who has more than two decades of experience in real estate, he is quick to inform his clients of the power of covering all of their bases to attract the best possible sale price for their property.
He knows that agents who offer to save you money by not preparing a holistic marketing plan that covers both print and online will end up costing sellers a lot more in the long run. Mr Blanchard’s recent sale of a family home at 52 Cupania Street in Mudjimba is the perfect example. He was able to sell the home for $60,000 more than another home in the area that took three months to sell via another agency that was located outside of the Sunshine Coast. The other agency used an
online-only campaign. The owners of Cupania Street, Shane and Cheryl, had maintained the home throughout the 20 years they had owned their home and Shane, who is a cabinet maker by trade, had installed a new kitchen and refurbished the bathrooms to upgrade all the items that required replacement in a home of its age. The location in Mudjimba was always going to attract interest, but Mr Blanchard says they still had to ensure that “no stone was left unturned”. “We had to do everything so we knew we had attracted every possible buyer for their home. This included a very strong online presence, two office window exposures, 12 salespeople all looking for buyers and meeting buyers at many open homes each weekend and referring these people to Shane and Cheryl’s home,” he says. “Many people would choose to do just this but I wanted to attract a buyer that might not be actively looking and who would fall in love
with Shane and Cheryl’s home. To do this we covered print media and in very good quality publication that people read and that has a massive Sunshine Coast coverage. My Weekly Preview was our choice, as the quality is exceptional and the coverage across the region is the best.” Around 35 groups viewed the home within the three-week window, with the potential buyers being attracted by all sources, including holiday makers who came through carrying copies of My Weekly Preview with a desire to buy a holiday home on the Coast.
AT A GLANCE Property: 52 Cupania Street, Mudjimba Marketing campaign: Five-week campaign including signage, in person referrals, window display in two offices, My Weekly Preview and the internet. Marketing investment: $5000 Sale: Three weeks into the five-week campaign, an offer prior to auction with ideal conditions was accepted. Sold for: $745,000 Investment result: $60,000 more than a similar property in the same locality.

NEW MAROOCHYODRE CBD OPENS WITH PEOPLE’S DAY
unshine Coast residents will have the opportunity to walk the streets of the new Maroochydore CBD for the first time for the People’s Day celebration to mark the stage one opening this Saturday, August 10. SunCentral Maroochydore chief executive officer John Knaggs said People’s Day provided the first opportunity for visitors and locals to experience the emerging city centre since the initial sod was turned on the site by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. “An enormous amount of work has been happening behind the scenes of the CBD and People’s Day is a really exciting milestone in the life of this 20-year project,” Mr Knaggs said. The celebration kicks off at 11am with the opening to pedestrians of the Aerodrome Road and First Avenue intersection by Mayor Mark Jamieson. These streets will be open to vehicular traffic on August 12. A range of activities will be staged throughout People’s Day, including interactive experiences with artwork and
smart city technologies, as well as music and other performances and a kid’s program that will be held in a pop-up creative precinct called The MET. The People’s Day then delivers a free evening entertainment program showcasing local talent on the urban square from 6pm. The all-ages performance celebrates Maroochydore’s past, present and future through music, dance, storytelling, visual art and projections, beginning with a traditional Welcome to Country by Kabi Kabi representatives. The evening performance will also feature talented local acts including the Gubbi Gubbi Dance Troupe, cellist Louise King, dancer Soraya Fewquandie-Scott and vocalists Linsey Pollak, Lizzie O’Keefe, Andrea Kirwin, Shannon Sol Carol and Elixir, a folk-jazz ensemble with Katie Noonan and saxophonist Zac Hurren. Visitors are invited to pack a picnic and rug/chair to enjoy with family and friends during the evening performance. There will be an opportunity to purchase limited refreshments from one of the local food vendors on site during the day.
KATIE NOONAN TO PERFORM AT CBD PEOPLE’S DAY
Louise King The evening performance of music and dance will begin at 6pm, featuring singer Katie Noonan as part of Elixir and the award-winning Gubbi dancers, among others. The Maroochydore City Centre People’s Day is a free, all-ages, non-ticketed event on Saturday, August 10 from 11am until 8.30pm. For more information visit maroochydore-city.com.au.
FINAL WORD People’s Day is a really exciting milestone in the life of this 20-year project
Australian singer-songwriter Katie Noonan will be the star attraction at People’s Day to celebrate the opening of the first stage of the new Maroochydore CBD. Noonan and saxophonist Zac Hurren are among a line-up of artists performing at the August 10 event’s free evening entertainment program, which starts at 6pm. “People’s Day provides the first chance for the Sunshine Coast community to embrace and experience their new city centre,” says Maroochydore City Centre activation project manager, Bronwyn Buksh. Ms Buksh says the day-long celebration will kick off at 11am with a range of activities including the official opening of the first streets, a collaborative painting program involving 1000 keys to the new city and a range of interactive events. “There will also be photography, artwork and a storyboard along the hoardings on the site as part of our curated Your City. Your Story. Initiative,” she says. People’s Day at Maroochydore City Centre is a free, all-ages, non-ticketed event.

So it appears the devil wind had a holiday last weekend and decided not to visit. My bad! This weekend looks epic for conditions. Swell? Not so much. What to do? Maybe consider a road trip to northern New South Wales as the swell charts look really, really good down there! The crowds are a little thinner these days given a few cheeky great whites. A friend of mine based in the US tags and tracks great whites. Yep, they have their normal patterns. Not sure if that is good news or badâ€Ś
