e are pretty lucky to live in this piece of paradise with its beautiful beaches, pristine lakes and crystal-clear hinterland swimming holes. Residential pools are also hugely popular, largely due to our warm weather. But, with this lifestyle comes a certain responsibility and it is a serious issue. Each year, 10 children under the age of five drown in Queensland. And with the days warming up, us there is no time like the now to brush up on water safety skills. It’s true that child drowning numbers have reduced in recent years, thankfully, but as water safety advocate Laurie Lawrence says, “We want zero drownings.” This week, deputy editor Leigh Robshaw speaks with Laurie and Sunshine Coast swim teacher Kristy Perkins about the importance of swimming lessons. They both provide plenty of useful advice for anyone who has a young child in their care. The story is on page 10. Also in this edition, we have a five-page feature about the Housing Industry Association’s night of nights. More than 30 businesses are vying for a regional award, and we chat with two of the people behind the event.

The Blackall Range is the product of a volcanic extrusion, with a maximum height of 450 metres. It was named in 1874, after Sir Samuel Blackall, Governor of Queensland (1864–1871). The pioneers of Mapleton were William and Thomas Smith who applied to select land in 1889. They cleared the dense vine scrub and planted bananas. The fruit was carried down the Range by pack-horses. In 1892 David Williams planted bananas and oranges, Harry Johnson strawberries and bananas, David Smith oranges, and Edmund Biggs strawberries and oranges. Mapleton was first known as Blackall Range, then Luton Vale. The area was officially named Mapleton in 1894 at the suggestion of early settler William Smith who had read about “a pretty little place on top of a hill named Mapleton in England”.

Stay safe With Learn to Swim Week on from September 30 to October 7, My Weekly Preview spoke to water safety advocate Laurie Lawrence about keeping our kids safe in the water. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


he Sunshine Coast is a water wonderland. Not only do we have great beaches, but we also have beautiful swimming holes, creeks and waterfalls. Thousands of homes also have backyard pools and despite years of public education, kids are still drowning in them. A pool gate is left open when it shouldn’t be or an Esky is left leaning up against a pool fence to dry out, a child uses it to scale the fence and it’s an accident waiting to happen. On average, 10 children under the age of five drown in Queensland every year and 67 per cent of children who drown are aged four and under (Queensland Family and Child Commission). According to the Royal Life Saving National Drowning Report 2015, of the drowning deaths of children under five, more than half occurred in swimming pools. Swimming coach Laurie Lawrence has been preaching swim safety for two decades. In 2000 he launched the Kids Alive – Do the Five program nationally, but he’s worried the message still isn’t getting across. “In the year 2000 when I first started teaching swim safety, 63 children under the age of five drowned in Australia. Last year, 19 years later, 18 children in Australia under the age of five drowned… Thanks to the Kids Alive – Do the Five program it is one of the few drowning statistics in Australia that is reducing. So I would say the program has been successful, but not totally successful. We want zero drownings.” Mr Lawrence says the government isn’t investing enough money in school-based swimming lessons – a necessity because not everyone can afford private lessons – and

10 My Weekly Preview | October 4, 2019

parents need to take more responsibility with kids around water, especially when alcohol is involved. “Alcohol is part of life and if you’re having a party and you have young children at that party, there’s a responsibility if there’s a pool to look after the child.” Mr Lawrence has teamed up with Poolwerx to promote the Responsible Pool Person concept, handing out free hats and safety information. Whoever is wearing the Responsible Pool Person hat has the job of keeping their eyes on the kids and the pool. He says recent research of drowning deaths of children under five across Australia show supervision was completely absent in 64 per cent of cases, with a further six per cent of children left to be supervised by siblings or other children. To Kristy Perkins, manager of Caloundra’s John Wallace Swim School, the statistics have faces and names. She tells one story about two young local children, a four-year-old boy and his 16-month-old brother, finding their way into the family pool recently when the parents weren’t around. “The older brother found a way to open the gate,” she says. “He had togs on but the younger boy didn’t. From his lessons, the older brother was aware you can’t go swimming unless you have togs on. It was a natural reaction on his part to make sure the younger brother didn’t go in. The parents were outside and got there really quickly, but it’s things like that where we educate the kids from an early age. It’s so important. “Learn-to-swim classes are forever evolving and they’re evolving for good reasons,” she says. “We feel we are bringing

Laurie Lawrence things back to a younger age. There was a time when in Australia we waited until a child developed too far before teaching them to swim. The earlier you can introduce these basic survival skills, the better.” She knows how quickly a family barbecue by the pool can turn into a tragedy. “A child drowning is the quietest accident waiting to happen,” she says. “No one will hear if a child goes under and there’s no eyes on them. It doesn’t take much for a child to drink water the wrong way or lose their grip and then they can’t get to the surface.

“Assigning a designated watcher doesn’t mean it has to be for the whole day,” she adds. “They can just put on a bright hat so we know who the designated person is and always make sure there is at least one designated supervisor at all times. It’s so easy to think, my husband will be watching the kids so I can talk to my friends. It’s really important in a party situation to designate someone and then you can change it around. “Supervision is one of my main safety lessons, especially in a situation with a barbecue around the pool. The other thing is, when you’re drying the Esky out, don’t leave it against the fence overnight. Children can go wandering, they want to look into things, they’re discovering new things. We want to make sure the entire pool area is clean.” Mr Lawrence and Mrs Perkins both believe children should be taught water safety from birth, as a daily routine parents can do at home. “They come from the womb so it’s a water environment,” says Mr Lawrence. “Maintain that natural affinity they have with the water by trickling water over their face. At two months of age you can give them verbal triggers – say their name then ‘ready, go’ and pour a cup of water over the baby’s face. If you are using a verbal trigger and stimulating the reflex that makes them hold their breath, they are learning to hold their breath on command. So by the time they’re four months old, they can hold their breath on verbal triggers and go underwater on assistance without being forced.” “Education starts from when the baby is born,” says Mrs Perkins. “I go to the community health clinic and talk to

KEY points

10 children under the age of five drown in Queensland each year.

67 per cent of children who drown are aged four and under. In 64 per cent of drowning cases in children under five, supervision was completely absent. Laurie Lawrence launched Kids Alive – Do the Five in 2000. The five steps: fence the pool, shut the gate, teach your kids to swim, watch your mate and learn how to resuscitate.

His daughter recently had twins, and Mr Lawrence, who lives on the Gold Coast, is looking forward to teaching them to swim. It’s not every day kids are taught to swim by the man who coached a host of Aussie swimmers to Olympic and world championship success. “I taught my own kids to swim as babies,” he says. “By 18 months they could swim anywhere in the pool. I’ll do the same with these twins. It will be done in a fun way. When they’re ready I’ll drop them into the water and have them swim back to the side, but not on the first day. The learning has to be appropriate to their positive growth and development. Those children who have lessons early, it builds their social, emotional, physical and intellectual capital. They’re

Adult supervision is a must around water. Experts recommend swim safety lessons for children from an early age. The first steps of learning water safety encourages parents to use verbal triggers for children from two months of age: say the child’s name, then “ready go” and pour a cup of water over the baby’s face. Generally by four months of age, they learn to hold their breath on verbal triggers.

new parents about how to introduce their babies to the water. We run free lessons for babies from eight weeks old to six months old because we want to teach the parents how to teach their child a queue. Every submersion or water on the back of the head comes after a personalised queue. For a child whose name is Sophie, we will say, ‘Sophie, eyes in’. That’s how we work on getting them to shut down and submerge in a safe manner.” Mr Lawrence says it’s crucial children are taught to swim correctly and that parents find a professional, good-quality swim school. “The first thing you should do is make sure all the teachers are qualified,” says Mr Lawrence. “A good learn-to-swim school should have clean, warm water. You should inspect the place to see the kids are happy, there’s no intimidation, fear or force. None of that. That’s paramount. Kids have got to learn to love water. It’s got to be a fun process.”

John Wallace Swim School manager Kristy Perkins with students Madiana, Roman, Indi and Summer. smarter, better co-ordinated, safer and healthier than other children. “It’s all about educating the parents,” Mr Lawrence says. “A good teacher will explain how to hold your baby in the pool. You’re an idiot if you put it under the first time you come to the pool. The baby is physically and cognitively not capable of doing certain things. What they can do is learn to hold their breath on command and as a result, can learn to float on the water. Then they are capable of

sitting on a mat and self-submerging. They can learn to go underwater by themselves, but they’ve got to be supervised all the time. “A 12-month-old child is able to do different skills to an eight-month old child. A two-year-old child is able to do a lot more than a one-year-old. The teachers need to be well-versed in children’s physical and cognitive growth. I recommend parents stay in the water with the child until the child turns four years of age. Why? Because a good teacher will instruct the parents what to do with their child, how to teach them. Then the children know they can’t go swimming without Mum and Dad. “Plus, the child has a half-hour lesson. If someone puts five three-year-olds in a class together to teach, those children need manipulation, to be shown what to do because they don’t have the fine motor skills. So effectively that child is going to have a five-minute swimming lesson if they’re by themselves in the pool with other kids and one teacher.” Mr Lawrence also says children should learn to swim with and without goggles. “They should be taught without goggles first so if they fall in the water they don’t freak out,” he says. “Once they start to get their face underwater swimming for 15 or 20 minutes, if their eyes are starting to get sore, use goggles.” Different swim schools have different teaching techniques, and most schools offer good-quality programs, but some don’t and take advantage of parents by charging for substandard service. Parents looking for a good school need to do their research. “Get to know the swim school,” says Mrs Perkins. “Learn a bit about their background and philosophy in terms of learning to swim. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Have a look and make sure it feels right for you. First impressions are important and you need to listen to your gut. You’ll know as a parent if it’s the right school for you.”

Laurie Lawrence will be speaking at the AUSTSWIM Soak It Up 19 World Conference, to be held at the Novotel Twin Waters on October 3 to 4.

SHOULD SWIMMING BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS? From 2019, all Queensland state schools with primary students are required to have a water safety or learn-to-swim program. Participation in these programs by students is not compulsory and parents can choose for their child not to participate. Mr Lawrence has been an outspoken critic of the program: “It’s nowhere near enough,” he says. “The only state that does the learn-to-swim at schools properly is Tasmania. They give 10 lessons every year. It doesn’t guarantee a child will learn to swim because you can’t do it in 10 lessons, but you can have them floating and playing in the water, but not deep water. It doesn’t make them safe. “Learn-to-swim is a long, slow process if you want to do it properly. The current government says they’re having water safety lessons but that’s a furphy because it could be drawing a beach scene with red and yellow flags and that’s water safety. In my opinion, kids should have the opportunity to learn to swim at school. “Despite the spin the government wants to put on it, they’re not being taught to swim at school. Parents need to go out of the school. Unless the school has a pool or unless the principal is committed to having swimming lessons for the kids, the kids don’t get it. The principal has to organise buses, take the kids to a pool and the bus often costs ore than entrance to the pool. We’re getting the short shaft.”

A life well lived The Sunshine Coast farewells Donna Penny – wife, mother, friend, author and a beacon of strength in our community.


ou would be hard pressed to find a Sunshine Coast local who doesn’t know the name Donna Penny. In recent years, Mrs Penny became the face of not only breast cancer, but of resilience, determination and strength for our region. And, for better or worse, she fought her battle with gusto, inspiring and educating thousands of men, women and children along the way. Late last week, this firecracker of a woman finally succumbed to cancer. It took 11 years, endless bouts of treatment and a hell of a lot of fight. Right up to her final days, the mother of two children and three stepchildren refused to let the disease win. She has left a legacy like no other.


We met Mrs Penny two years ago when she appeared on the cover of My Weekly Preview. She kindly shared her story with our readers in a bid to raise awareness about cancer research, and breast checks. Mrs Penny first found a lump in her breast when she was 30, but it didn’t show up in a mammogram or an ultrasound and she was told it was nothing to worry about. But the lump didn’t go away and in 2008, when she was 35 and her youngest child Kai was just 20 months old, three small tumours showed up in an ultrasound – though a mammogram didn’t pick them up. There was no lymph node involvement, but she had a double mastectomy to be on the safe

side, underwent chemotherapy and took Tamoxifen, a drug used to treat and prevent cancer, for five years. She was given a 98 per cent cure rate, but in 2013, the cancer returned and lesions were found in her spine, left humeral head, pelvis, hips, ribs and skull. She was given two years to live, but she defied the diagnosis, championing for vital breast cancer awareness throughout her journey. She also penned a book, inspired by Kai who never knew his mother without cancer. The informative and inspiring book, Why My Mummy?, gained national media attention. “I can’t talk for all women with stage four breast cancer, but I’ve been lucky to live a full life,” Mrs Penny told My Weekly Preview in 2017. “I’ve had a great life; I met the love of my life, Jason. He proposed two weeks before I started chemo. I’m not scared of dying – I’m scared of leaving my kids, especially Kai, because he’s still at an age where I don’t want him to forget me. I just need to get him a bit older. “I’ve done two legacy videos. I just wanted to tell the kids, especially Kai, to work hard at school, travel, meet a girl, treat her well, save money, do the trips and always be kind. “And I just wanted him to know how proud I was of him and if he settles down and has children, I’ll be watching over him. “And I said I loved him more than anything and I’m sorry I won’t be around.” Mrs Penny will be laid to rest on October 4 at a funeral held at Gregson and Weight Caloundra at 10am.




Sunshine Coast Council has adopted a planning scheme amendment to facilitate the implementation of the Caloundra Centre Master Plan. The amendment supports the plan’s vision to activate a mix of commercial, tourist, community, sport, education and living opportunities. Division two councillor Tim Dwyer says it is the next big step in the implementation of the adopted master plan, which provides the opportunity to redevelop the city centre, increase accommodation and improve vehicle and pedestrian access. In the coming year, the focus will be on completing design development and feasibility for the community and creative hub precinct, and the re-purposing of the Caloundra administration building for uses including the proposed new library.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Cancer Australia, the rate of breast cancer diagnoses in Australia is increasing. Today, one in seven women and one in 675 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer by their 85th birthday. Although more people are being diagnosed with breast cancer, the good news is more are surviving with the five-year survival rate now sitting at 90 per cent. Most medical experts agree that successful treatment of breast cancer is linked to early detection. BreastScreen Australia invites women aged between 50 and 74 for a free mammogram every two years. Women aged 40 to 49 and over 75 can also be screened free of charge but don’t receive invitation letters. Ultrasound can detect breast changes that can be felt but not seen on a mammogram or changes in women with dense breast tissue. Women are also advised to do a monthly breast self-exam.





Mooloolaba businesswoman and philanthropist Jocelyn Walker, who has advocated for the University of the Sunshine Coast since she joined its foundation board 24 years ago, has been awarded the prestigious Chancellor’s Stole. It is only the second time USC has awarded the stole, which recognises extraordinary voluntary and philanthropic contributions to USC. Chancellor Sir Angus Houston says Ms Walker has worked tirelessly and passionately to support the university’s pursuit of educational excellence.

From iron men to rugby players, sporting celebrities have jumped on board the 2020 BOQ Maroochydore Celebrity Golf Classic in support of Coast children’s charity SunnyKids.

VISIT THE B-WELL AND PROSPER PORTAL FOR • Cash flow tips. • Tips for managing stress and recognising employee burnout. • Wellness advice and guidance, including a Workplace Wellbeing Toolkit. • Stories from Coast business owners. • Fact sheets on mental health and how to start the conversation. • Connections to free and paid wellbeing and mental health support services.

You’re not alone Sunshine Coast small businesses are encouraged to sign up to the B-Well and Prosper Program. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


mall business is the powerhouse of the Sunshine Coast, and when things get tough, it can be difficult to find help. While larger organisations have human resources departments and access to counselling and support, small businesses are generally on their own. To address this gap, the Sunshine Coast Council teamed up with Mindstar and a host of corporate sponsors to create the B-Well and Prosper Program for Sunshine Coast business with fewer than 20 employees. Launched in July, more than 200 local businesses have already signed up and are benefitting from the resources offered. “The B-Well and Prosper Program is a free introductory-level employee assistance program for small business owners and their employees,” says Stephen Robinson, Economic Development and Innovation

portfolio councillor for Sunshine Coast Council. “It’s an online portal that allows individuals to connect in real time from their smartphone, laptop or any device to access wellbeing information. They don’t need to go and see someone – they can just log in at any time and access the portal. “We wanted to make sure small business owners felt confident there was support out there for them. A business owner can go in and share it with their staff and pass it onto other employees. It contains a variety of fact sheets they can print and put in the staff room and a variety of programs they can share with their staff.” Also available through the website are interviews, wellbeing workshops, free local activities, podcasts, blogs, mental health toolkits and online wellbeing programs. “This program wouldn’t have been a

success without the support of the some of the leading organisations across the region who have contributed to the development,” says Cr Robinson. “We have to say thanks to Mindstar, Youi, Unitywater, Telstra, Sunshine Plaza and ComLink and recognise the media support from My Weekly Preview, Mix FM and Channel 7. It’s this team that have been determined to make the project a success and recognise the value of this.” Following on from the national R U OK? Day, On October 11, the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce will host a wellbeing breakfast to coincide with Queensland Mental Health Week. The Workplace Wellbeing Breakfast: Secrets to a Thriving Business, Customers & Community will feature Aaron Williams, CEO of Mindstar, as guest speaker. Mindstar is a provider of positive workplace wellbeing solutions and Mr Williams is known for his passionate, entertaining approach. He was integral in the development of B-Well and Prosper.

Surfer Kelly Slater Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford has welcomed the news that the World Surf League plans to base its first Australian Kelly Slater Surf Ranch on the Sunshine Coast. The ranch could establish the Sunshine Coast as Australia’s most dynamic surfing base and boost the region’s economy. “The Sunshine Coast is already wellestablished as one of Australia’s most popular destinations for water-based events and holidays, but with the Kelly Slater name attached to the surf ranch, it could give our region even greater appeal internationally. “We have been highly successful in attracting domestic and international sporting teams to train on the Sunshine Coast. We are now a venue for the national football codes and, of course, we have hosted a wide range of international and national surfing, triathlon and ironman competitions in the past. “Having a global name associated with such a high-tech surfing project could really elevate sports tourism to new levels on the Sunshine Coast, attracting international teams, training camps and surfing fans. World Surf League general manager Andrew Stark says the surf ranch will anchor a broader tourism development precinct that will include the development of an eco-lodge, event and training facilities, tourism accommodation, public open space and an environmental experience centre.

The gift of sound Indi Breen’s family will be donning loud shirts to raise money and awareness for Hear and Say. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane. Ronnelle Hollier with Indi, Kye, Brohdy & Kenny Breen

onnelle Hollier will never forget the day the youngest of her twins, Indi Breen, was given the gift of sound. She was fitted with bilateral hearing aids, and recalling the moment they were switched on still brings tears to the Sippy Downs mother of three’s eyes. “She was six month old, three months corrected [for being born prematurely]. I remember the moment clearly. She was in the pram and her hearing was getting worse. She had been diagnosed with light to moderate hearing loss at birth and now she was moderate to severe,” she says. “When they put their hearing aids in, she popped up and turned her head around in awe. Her smile instantly grew bigger and she was a lot more alert.” The family has come a long way with Hear and Say, which Ms Hollier says has been as equally challenging as it has been rewarding. But by trusting in the advice and education provided by the organisation, Indi has grown into a confident and capable young girl. “There were times where we would be picking up her hearing aids and putting them back in 11 times in a day, on alert to make sure she didn’t chew them and, of course, always working on the activities given to us by Hear and Say. The fact that she now has no speech impediment and people wouldn’t know she is hearing impaired when talking to her has made it all worth it,” she says.

“Indi wears her hearing aids with pride. She has become a huge advocate for her hearing aids and through working with Hear and Say, she knows how to stand tall and be proud instead of feeling embarrassed. “We talk openly about her hearing impairment and she wears her hair up and doesn’t try to hide it. We’ve found that in doing this, we reduce opportunities for others to whisper and stare. When we see someone in public having a look, we will go up to them and explain what the hearing aids are and why Indi needs them. I feel that education is so very important.” Ms Hollier speaks with pride as she recalls how Indi stood up in front of her kindy classmates last year to tell them about her hearing aids and give them each a chance to have a listen through them. She did the same again with her prep class at Chevallum State School earlier this year and was able to show the kids the Roger microphone system, which links her teacher’s voice directly to her hearing aids, giving her freedom to move around the class and not be stuck having to be seated at the front in order to hear. “She explains to them how little things annoy her, like she can’t hear rain on the roof unless it’s pouring down, she doesn’t hear the bathtub running and can’t hear whispers,” Ms Hollier says. “With her being confident in being her own advocate, it gets any awkwardness out of

Indi Breen the way and allows the children to ask any questions they might have.” Ms Hollier says Indi’s life has been filled with many unexpected twists, but she is so proud of her and how she has embraced life with a hearing impairment. “She’s come so far and we 100 per cent wouldn’t have been able to do it without Hear and Say’s support. Like any parent you don’t want anything to be wrong with your child and to be honest, it took me two-and-a-half years to accept that Indi has a hearing

impairment, but I’m a huge believer of looking for the good in life and I have been able to find so much awareness and gratitude for everything that is available for my child to live a full life,” she says. “We’ve had open and honest communication, empowering her with tools so she can also handle things. Hand on heart I wouldn’t be the parent I am today with the skills I have today without Hear and Say. [My partner] Kenny and I have been open to learning and we trusted they know what they were doing. There is so much to learn and process when you have a child with a disability that you know nothing about, and to see her where she is today shows how she has made us all better versions of ourselves.” Indi and Kye were born at 26 weeks gestation in Townsville. The family had relocated there from Mt Isa in order to be closer to medical services and when the twins were born, they were transported to Cairns hospital to be in the special care unit. It was there, on December 24, that Indi, now six, failed her newborn screening test. She also failed a second attempt. Ms Hollier says they decided to connect with Hear and Say because she and Mr Breen didn’t want their daughter to rely heavily on sign language and not learn to communicate with people in everyday life. “We wanted her to actually learn how to speak and listen rather than just signing,” Ms

Hollier says. “They were really friendly and they met all of our needs and more. “We started out with weekly face-to-face appointments in Cairns and we moved a year later back to Mt Isa for Kenny’s work and we stepped into telepractice, where Indi’s sessions were done over Skype sessions. Now that we are on the Sunshine Coast, we are back to face-to-face sessions again.” This will be Indi’s last year with the organisation, with her graduation set for December. In a nod to all of the support and education Hear and Say has given to the family, they will once again be active participants in the annual Loud Shirt Day on October 18. Dad Kenny, older brother Brohdy and Indi’s twin brother Kye created their own tie-dyed shirts for their first Loud Shirt Day three years ago and have since taken the event to the twins’ former kindergarten. This year, they will be taking Chevallum State School by storm, hoping to raise much-needed funds for Hear and Say by encouraging their classmates to get on board.

5 KEY POINTS More than 12,000 Australian kids face every day with a hearing loss. It takes up to six years to teach one profoundly deaf child to learn to listen and speak. Hear and Say started in 1992 with six children and it now helps 900 each year.

32 babies and children received new implantable technology in Queensland in 2017/18. 3000 audiology sessions and 6000 listening and spoken language sessions are provided to Hear and Say children every year. Source: Hear and Say

Troy Davey, Ord Minnett Buderim.



he primary driver of volatile global markets has been the escalation in the trade conflict between the US and China, with the presidents of both countries beating their chests over which of the world’s two largest economies can be tougher on tariffs. The latest shots in the textbook tariff fight, fired on September 1, imposed a 15 per cent tariff on $US125 billion of Chinese imports to the US, while Beijing slapped additional imposts on $US75 billion of US imports. At the time of writing, high-level talks that resumed in mid-September had broken up and were scheduled to start again in October. Both parties remain a long way apart, however, and it is clear a quick resolution is not on the cards.

These trade ructions, combined with questions over the effectiveness of levers at central banks’ disposal, increasingly bearish signals from the bond market, and an equities market performance that has diverged from fundamentals, have led us to reduce our allocation to risk assets by trimming exposure to equities and increasing positions in cash and bonds. We still do not see a recession as likely this year, but the same reasons that underpin our asset allocation changes also mean cyclical exposure is no longer a dominant theme. Given this, we now favour companies that are less dependent on economic conditions, and instead will benefit from structural changes in their industry. Locally, the just-completed earnings season was disappointing, with just 25 per cent of company results beating estimates, while the downward revision in the fiscal 2020 earnings per share (EPS) estimate for the S&P/ASX 200 Index was the deepest since the February reporting season of 2009. The Australian equities market has had a turbulent few weeks, with the S&P/ASX 200 Index traversing a wide range of more than 400 points between July 31 and September 20. Meanwhile, June-quarter gross domestic product rose 0.5 per cent from

the March quarter, just above Ord Minnett’s forecast of 0.4 per cent and matching consensus estimates, while the annualised rate of GDP growth slowed to 1.4 per cent from 1.7 per cent – the slowest pace since the GFC trough in 2009. Compositionally, domestic demand remained sluggish, while a strong contribution from net trade – exports rose and imports fell in the quarter – salvaged the wider economy’s performance. In light of global developments and local economic indicators, we expect the

Reserve Bank of Australia will be forced to act sooner in reducing interest rates. We see a further rate cut of 25 basis points in October (previously February 2020) and again a further rate cut of 25 basis points in February 2020 (previously we thought May 2020).

C’mon get happy Author, psychologist and coach Cass Dunn wants you to live your best life, at work and at home, and she’ll be sharing her insights on how at the upcoming SHINE conference. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


ou may not immediately know the name Cass Dunn, but you’ll almost certainly have heard of her books with the catchy titles Crappy to Happy and Crappy to Happy: Love What You Do. The clinical psychologist, podcaster and author is a guest speaker at the second annual SHINE Business Women’s Conference. “I’ll be talking about how to get that balance of doing what you love but in a way that really supports your lifestyle,” says Ms Dunn. “Women in business end up doing everything. They’re overwhelmed and exhausted and have flexibility but end

up chained to their laptops. How do you structure your work to stay in that space of being inspired and creative and get paid for it?” After moving from Brisbane for a quieter lifestyle, Ms Dunn has lived in Eudlo for almost five years. As a mindfulness meditation teacher, she thought it would be nice to have a country space with animals, out of the city, where she could teach classes. “My husband always wanted to be near the beach and we eventually found this perfect property up here,” she says. “What I also really wanted to do was move my work away from one-on-one work and do more online work. I had dreams of writing

a book and I ended up bringing out two books this year.” It seems we’re swimming in information about how to live healthier, happier lives, so why aren’t more of us taking that advice on board and living our best lives? “For some people it’s a lack of clarity,” Ms Dunn says. “I think we often get carried away with the flow of life rather than choosing a direction, taking opportunities as they come rather than being very intentional about how you want to spend your time. “Women are their own worst enemies in terms of self-doubt, lacking confidence, perfectionism, being stuck and indecisive for fear of making a wrong decision. It’s a big theme that seems to filter through, whether in health and fitness or work, just in life generally – that constant self-criticism and overthinking every little thing. Overthinking but through a negative lens, looking for the problems as opposed to the solutions. “Underneath it there can be a bit of self-sabotage,” she adds. “As a coach and psychologist, I know there’s a lot of stories we tell ourselves. I just came back from running a retreat in Byron Bay for 22 women. They gained a lot of insight into their own patterns and why they’re stuck. Being able to take that space away from the day to day, looking at things in a different way, away from that routine, is so helpful. “They were able to see their patterns of people pleasing, needing to be the fixer and rescuer. They realised they gained self-worth from being all things to all people, but they weren’t really prioritising themselves. Those women have come back and are making huge changes in the way they live.” Many can no doubt relate to the idea of self-sabotage – starting a new healthy eating or exercise plan, only to go off the rails after a few weeks. According to Ms Dunn, it happens to the best of us. “Our brain is very intent on keeping us where we are. It wants

to maintain the status quo, so anything we do differently to that, it will pull us back into our hold habit. We have to understand that about how we’re wired. “Secondly there’s a whole lot of unconscious stuff going on. A lot of people don’t recognise the mind we use for thinking, goal setting and so on is a very small part of our mind. What is going on underneath is far more powerful and it’s running interference the entire time. “Until you have really uncovered what is going on at that unconscious level, you’re going to be continually frustrating yourself by saying you’re going to do one thing and doing the complete opposite. You have to do a bit of digging. If there’s a particular area of your life where you feel stuck and frustrated, it might be worth working with a coach or asking yourself, ‘what are the things I’ve always believed to be true about this? What’s the trade off?’ See what you can uncover.” Ms Dunn says we may have a conscious commitment to eating better, but an unconscious commitment to creating fabulous food for our family in order to receive their validation, which ends up derailing our eating plan. Finally, she says, it’s important to take a good look at your values and goals and see whether they really are in alignment. “Sometimes it’s just the case you’ve picked the wrong goal,” she says. “The only reason you want it is because society has told you it’s what you need. Is it a goal that really matters to you at the end of the day?”

Crafting a happy, healthy lifestyle Residents at Nature’s Edge Buderim are enjoying the thriving arts and crafts community the over 50’s lifestyle village has to offer. From quilters and dressmakers to fine artists and woodworkers, the residents are a clever bunch. Just ask Ann-Marie Granger, a talented artist and member of one of the many crafty groups who meet regularly to hone their skills and form new friendships. Not only does Ann-Marie enjoy learning new techniques and keeping her mind sharp, she also loves the connections she has made with some of her likeminded arty neighbours.

Fun and friendship “It was a pleasant surprise to discover there was an arts and crafts room at Nature’s Edge Buderim, and they also cater for men who like to turn their hand to woodworking at the work shed,” says Ann-Marie. “I joined the Monday morning art group which has allowed me to continue to practise my craft and I have really enjoyed the social aspect of it,” she says. Giving back to the community The arts and crafts community at Nature’s Edge Buderim also has a philanthropic arm, with the quilting group generously donating their beautiful blankets to various Sunshine Coast cancer charities.

“It’s a really good feeling to know that our quilts are going to someone who really needs them,” says group member, Helen Hawkins. “We have a lot of talented people here at Nature’s Edge Buderim and it’s a great community to be a part of.”

The residents will be showcasing their talents at the inaugural Nature’s Edge Buderim Art and Crafts Expo on Saturday, 12 October from 10am to 2pm. Come along and enjoy a day of shopping, food and fun! To RSVP, phone 1800 218 898 by 9 October.

Sami Muirhead is full of admiration for the work being done on the Sunshine Coast to raise awareness of the dangers of sepsis.

Richard O’Leary says times have changed in regards to the way children are expected to address adults.


here is a story that needs to be told about the evil of sepsis. The annual Wishlist Spring Carnival smashed a record last month by raising more than $215,000 in one day towards research and education about the condition. “One child dies every week in Australia from sepsis and 3.5 million across the world each year,” says Wishlist’s Lisa Rowe. “In Australia more die from sepsis than road traffic accidents and leukaemia. We lose 18,000 adults a year to sepsis, which is more than from breast and prostate cancer,”she says. The fight against sepsis has a few very brave and key warriors here on the Coast. Little Finn Smith survived meningococcal B septicaemia in 2013. He turns seven soon and is the most amazing child. His mum Sarah wants us to know the symptoms of sepsis in the hope of saving lives. “Finn was a happy little boy and at just 13 months old seemed to be sick with a cold. As the evening progressed, so did his flu like symptoms. I felt his little body start to tremor. At this stage I called the after hours doctor and they came within the hour, saying he just had a viral infection. Hours later I noticed a mark on Finn’s forehead. It was grey in colour, like he had been playing with a lead pencil. I thought it must be a bruise. Finn was now throwing up and I noticed the same marks all over his chest and body but lighter in colour. When we arrived at the emergency department our

worst nightmare came to life and I could feel Finn’s little body going limp before they placed him in an induced coma. “We were told Finn might not survive. The first 72 hours are the most critical. We kept telling him over and over “fight bubba, fight”. The image of our beautiful baby boy hooked up to life support will be with me forever. Over the next few days we watched his limbs go from red to purple to black and then his fingertips dried up like raisins. The reality of him requiring amputations set in. “Finn lay in that coma for weeks, as he was too weak to breathe by himself. But slowly a miracle happened and each of his organs began to work again before he opened those big brown eyes. A few weeks after that, they began the amputations. Through countless surgeries, pain, frustration and tears, we did it and Finn is now one strong, determined and happy little boy who amazes us every day. “I would like to leave you with this message: if your child has flu like symptoms that seem to be worse than you have seen before, then do not hesitate and get them to a hospital. Symptoms include a runny nose, fever, vomiting, tremors and bruise like rashes on the skin. Trust your gut. No one knows your child like you. When it comes to sepsis, time is critical. Every second you wait could be the difference between them surviving or losing their life. Yes, Finn lost his limbs but I can honestly say he was one of the lucky ones.”

’ve been watching with interest the debate playing out in some sections of the media about the most appropriate way for children to address adults. When I was growing up, this was not even a discussion. My friend Mark’s parents where Mr and Mrs Turner. I would no more call them Wayne and Elaine than I would call the Queen by her first name (even today I would struggle to call them anything but Mr and Mrs Turner). And addressing my teachers by their first name would have seen me sent to the principal’s office. As kids we were told it’s all about respect. Looking back, I think it was more about control and treating children as inferiors – though shall be seen but not heard. Once grown up, it took a while to transition to calling adults by their first names, although being a journalist helped, and by my early twenties I had the hang of it – nearly. Although my egalitarian streak did get me into trouble on occasion. Like the time I was working in a political office and my chief of staff had to pull me aside to suggest it may be more appropriate to call my boss ‘Minister’ rather than ‘mate’. To be fair, I was working for a Labor Government in the era of Graham Richardson and everyone was ‘maaaate’. Or the time in a packed media scrum in Newcastle I called the Prime Minister John, rather than address him with his title. I still cringe over that. It was inappropriate.

I’ve never told my children to go one way or the other on the subject. They tend to call their friends’ parents by their first names or (insert friend’s name)’s mum. If the adult asked to be called Mr, Mrs, Ms or anything else, I’d hope my boys would do the polite thing. My sons call all their teachers by their first names, although that is the norm for all students across their school. So what do my sons call me? Dad.

“I must admit I love being called Dad and all that entails” If they wanted to call me Richard that would be okay, although I must admit I love being called Dad and all that entails. It’s not just a form of address, it signifies the relationship between us, father and son, son and father. It captures that bond of unconditional love, and shared life, shared problems and shared solutions. But it’s their choice to call me Dad that makes it special. If I insisted upon it the nomenclature would be reduced to a mere title. To be worth something, respect needs to be earned, not enforced.

Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

the family dream A mini break at a Gold Coast favourite proves to the perfect day out for this family of four. Words: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


t has easily been a decade since I last set foot in the magical realm of Dreamworld on the Gold Coast. I have so many memories of a younger and more adventurous version of myself heading to the theme park and spending an adrenaline-filled day with friends, daring each other to go on the biggest and most nail-biting rides. To this day, I feel like I get another grey hair every time I think about sitting atop the 119-metre-high Giant Drop and hanging there for what felt like hours waiting with dreaded anticipation for them to put me out of my misery and send us towards the ground in stomach-flipping terror. A number of hugely impressive thrill rides have joined the Giant Drop since then, including the ominous-sounding BuzzSaw and The Claw, but it was a very different side of Dreamworld that I saw when I recently headed back to this stomping ground of my youth with my husband and two children. Wide-eyed and full of awe, the kids were in their version of heaven as we walked through the entrance gates to be greeted with a huge fountain and the cutest little baby tiger cubs laying around on leads with their keepers. Squeals of delight erupted from my eldest and I immediately knew the day was going to be epic. Shunning a map and any semblance of a game plan for the day (most parents

would agree planning is just a recipe for disaster) we asked the kids which way they wanted to go. We ventured into ABC Kids World. Aged five and seven, Lilly and Lincoln were a little old for this bright and colourful section of the park, which offered a Giggle and Hoot mini ferris wheel, a Wiggles Big Red Car ride and some fun mazes and play areas. We found the Dreamworld Express station on the outskirts and hopped on,

“Wide-eyed and full of awe, the kids were in their version of heaven” getting off at Dreamworld’s Corroboree. There was a plethora of Australian native animals to see, but it was the innovative virtual-reality Corroboree experience, which is housed inside a cave, that captured my daughter Lilly. There were traditional stories brought to life in animated movies and a world of Indigenous storytelling, song and dance inside this incredible environment that gave you the feeling of going back in time. We caught the tail end of a presentation

by a young Aboriginal man talking through traditions including a smoke ceremony and demonstrating how to play the didgeridoo. The kids then met Aunty Grace, an Indigenous elder who painted their faces with white ochre, sharing the stories and meaning behind each marking as she made it on their face and arms. Lilly was dubbed as ‘the dancer’, who would entertain through performance and then go on to teach those younger than her. Her brother was called ‘the warrior’ – he would grow up big and strong to protect his people. The kids proudly strolled around the park with their painted faces, Lilly dancing a lot more than usual after being given permission of a kind from Aunty Grace. We found our way to the Tiger Island at the perfect time to see the tiger presentation (a complete fluke!). There were plenty of open mouths as the keepers expertly showcased the incredible talents of the tigers and balanced it expertly with education about hunting and the effects of destruction of their habitat. Just around the corner, we got googly-eyed at the tiger nursery, watching the precious cubs napping in the sun. Revived after resting during the show, we unleashed a bit of crazy at the Dreamworks

park, where Shrek Shrek, Kung Fu section of the park Panda and Madagascar characters and rides kept the kids pumped for a few hours. There were many bumper car rides and I lost count of how many times I had to lay on my belly on Gingy’s Glider and ‘fly’ around with Lincoln, but he really couldn’t get enough! The heat of the day was taking its toll, so we switched things up a bit and headed through to Whitewater World, where the adrenaline-pumping array of slides was counterbalanced with the ease of lazing by the wave pool and watching the kids jump over the ‘swell’.

IF YOU GO PLAYING THERE: Dreamworld is an easy day trip from the Coast and the perfect destination for a mini getaway. Doors open at 10am. Dreamworld’s newest ride, Sky Voyager, is now open, where you can take flight over Australia’s most spectacular landscapes on the southern hemisphere’s first flying theatre.

KATIE NOONAN RECOGNISED WITH AWARD NOD Sunshine Coast-based Katie Noonan has been announced as a finalist in the 2019 Australian Women In Music Awards (AWMA). She will also perform at the prestigious industry event on October 8 and 9. The five-time ARIA Award winner is a finalist in the Creative Leadership Award, along with Claire Edwardes and Elaine Chia. The announcement comes after Ms Noonan released her latest album The Glad Tomorrow at the end of August. The album is a collaboration with the Australian String Quartet and the estate of First Nations artist, educator and campaigner Oodgeroo Noonuccal, which allowed Ms Noonan to set Ms Noonuccal’s poetry to music created by contemporary Australian composers. Ms Noonan says The Glad Tomorrow is a very special project, with Ms Noonuccal’s great-granddaughter Kaleenah Edwards reciting the poems in her native language for the first time. “We have this extraordinary culture here and my relationship with First Nations musicians has meant I have been very welcomes into this world,” Ms Noonan says. “My hope is that this project will help a new generation discover the powerful words

and the extraordinary life of Oodgeroo Noonuccal. I am committed to using music and community engagement to further the sentiments behind the Uluru Statement, which seeks “a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making between governments and First Nations and truth-telling about our history”. “Makarrata is a word from the language of the Yolngu people in Arnhem Land, and the concept of Makarrata captures the idea of two parties coming together after a struggle, healing the divisions of the past. It is about acknowledging that something has been done wrong, and it seeks to make things right. My dream is that this song cycle is a small step towards this Makarrata aspiration.” Ms Noonan will take to the stage at the AWMA Concert on October 9. The awards event is the culmination of a two-day program designed to nurture a strong and dynamic hub for women, First Nations people, multicultural artists and members of the LGBTQIA community to share knowledge, inspire and thrive. – Words: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane To find out more about AWMA, visit

HIA AWARDS Q) What changes have you noticed over the years regarding entries? The competition is getting stronger as the builders are entering a very high standard. Q) As a judge, what are you looking for when considering the difference between a good entry and a winning entry? I see the difference between a good entry and a winning entry is the little details to the finishing off.

MEET DEAN COSTA Director of Costa Homes and HIA judge. Q) Tell us about your background/career. I have been living on the Sunshine Coast for more than 40 years. I am part of a family building company, which was originally started by my late father in 1970. I started working for the company as a labourer in my early teens on school holidays. I then progressed to a carpentry apprenticeship and then obtained my builder’s license.

Q) How is the standard of entries this year? The overall standard of entry’s this year was of a high standard, making it hard to judge.

The Cabinet House is in the running for the 2019 Kitchen Over $50,000 category

Q) How long have you been a judge for these awards and why did you get involved? I have been judging in the HIA awards now for three years. I was asked to judge, which I accepted as an honour, as I believe that judging can be quite a difficult thing to do. Q) What is your favourite part about judging the competition? Seeing some of the great work the builders have to offer. Q) What are the benefits of the HIA award for entrants? The benefit that the HIA awards offer to the entrants is to give their clients the reassurance that they are working with a quality builder who takes pride in their work.

Saltair Constructions won the 2018 Innovation in Housing

Q) What advice do you give to people thinking about entering the awards in the future? Make sure your attention to detail of your workmanship is of the highest level.

SX Constructions has entered the Kitchen Over $50,000 category for the 2019 awards

The 2018 Custom Built $1 million to $2 million award went to Dayne Lawrie Constructions Q) How has the building and design industry changed in the past decade on the Sunshine Coast? In my opinion in the last decade the building industry on the Sunshine Coast is getting a lot harder. The competition is tough out there. To stay ahead of it you need to be innovative and produce a quality product. Q) Obviously not everyone can buy or build an award-winning home. But what can people learn from these homes and apply to their own projects? I guess what they can take from these award-winning homes would be the use of some of the materials and techniques the builders have used.

Q) Tell me about the quality of builders on the Sunshine Coast? Are they on par with larger cities? The quality of the Sunshine Coast builders is of a very high standard. This has been shown in the past due to a lot of award-winning homes from here, going on to win at a state and/or national level. Q) If you were building your dream home, what are the three things you would include or do? I have built a lot of custom homes for people and three of my main things I like to include are good use of natural light, good natural ventilation and an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, as this would be the hub of my home.

On Monday, your ruler Mercury is at odds with disruptive Uranus. The more unreliable others are, the more you will shift into fussy and finicky mode. You’ll feel much less stressed if you take 10 deep breaths, try to relax and keep things in perspective.

Monday’s sun/Saturn square slows progress. Uranus also stirs up problems with partnerships or finances, so expect the unexpected! With the sun, Venus and Mars all visiting your sign, you may find it difficult to stick to your usual routine.

Expect an intense Monday, when the planets stir up hidden resentments. You could also become obsessed with a person from your past. Smart Scorpios will learn to let go. Things pick up on Tuesday, when vivacious Venus shifts into your sign.





Monday will be a stop-start kind of day. You’re keen to move ahead, but Saturn will slow you down via an unexpected problem that will keep you occupied. By the time the weekend rolls around, you’re happy to inspire others with your high spirits.

The sun and Saturn square off on Monday, which will test your patience. On Tuesday, Venus visits your networking zone (until November 1), which bodes well for connecting with friends and colleagues in beneficial ways.

It’s a wonderful week to expand your world via exciting foreign friendships. If you link up with like-minded people, it will open up new doors of opportunity. But be careful what you post online, as a casual comment could lead to controversy.

You’ve certainly got big plans for the future. But reality planet Saturn urges you to make a clear distinction between an achievable goal and an airy-fairy fantasy. With the right balance of idealism and realism, you can make your wishes come true.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23) The week starts with a challenging sun/Saturn square, so pace yourself and do your best to avoid online arguments or run-ins with authority figures. If you are the person in charge, then resist the urge to be bossy and overbearing with others.

When it comes to work or your general life direction, it’s time to banish old beliefs. Instead, look to the future with renewed confidence. A family matter has got your head in a spin, but Venus will help you sort out a simmering domestic drama.

With Jupiter in your partnership zone (until December 2), aim to be more compassionate towards loved ones. Try to view a troubled relationship from a more philosophical perspective. If you are single, you could fall for someone from another country.

Love planet Venus visits your relationship zone (from Tuesday until November 1) ,so plan something extra romantic with your partner. Unhappily single? You could find yourself drawn to a charming Capricorn or a sexy Scorpio.




This week, it will be very easy to say the wrong thing. Think things through and choose your words wisely. Expect the fur to fly on the weekend, when Uranus and the full moon agitate close relationships and heat up your hasty side. Slow down, rams.

With our lifestyles changing, smaller land sizes with custom-built homes are becoming more popular on the Sunshine Coast.


he size of the land that Sunshine Coasters are seeking to build their new dream homes on is shrinking in size and going up in price – a great sign for land valuations across the region. Property expert Michael Matusik has crunched the numbers and looked through the historical data and found that there has been a 14 per cent increase in the number of land sales on the Sunshine Coast between 2009 and 2019 and a 15 per cent increase in the value of the land sold. When you compare this to the southeast Queensland average, there was a 14 per cent increase in the number of land sales, but the average increase in price was 27 per cent in the same time frame. Mr Matusik says it’s worth noting how much land sizes have fallen in the same time frame. According to the Matusik Ready Reckoner, southeast Queensland median land sizes reduced from 620m2 to 475m2 in the past 10 years, a 23 per cent drop. Conversely, the price per square metre of land has increased 66 per cent. On the Sunshine Coast, land sizes have only dropped nine per cent, yet the increase in price per square metres has risen from $364 in 2009 to $459 in 2019, a 26 per cent rise.

Mr Matusik says this reflects two trends. Firstly, the tightening of land supply and rising associated costs of land development, and changing housing demographics and lifecycle preferences. “There are two major housing demographic shapers over the next decade. These two next big waves are first homebuyers and downsizers,” he says. “Both of these markets are looking for

affordable housing outcomes and more often than not, smaller homes with less maintenance. “Smaller lots – especially those near high quality offsets like parks, cafes and views – are in increasing demand. “Most of us have busy lifestyles these days and much of a family’s spare time is now structured around kids’ sport, after school activities and homework.”

Lifestyle changes like swapping out kicking the footy in the backyard with heading to the gym and meeting people at local cafes and restaurants instead of hosting dinner parties at home have also reduced the demand for large living areas and homes. “Besides, we are spending more and more time in front of our digital screens and less leisure time outdoors or with friends/relatives. Well at least not face to face,” Mr Matusik says. “And if the car hiring and car sharing trends are taken up by the mainstream, then less private land will be needed for the second or third car. Cars aside, these trends are also driving allotment sizes smaller. Pun intended.” This trend explains the big uptake of terrace-style houses in new developments like Stockland’s Aura and Avid Property Group’s Harmony. Casting his eye to the future, Mr Matusik says the next decade will see three times more land allotments allocated to terrace plots with a median size of 250m2. In the past decade, these sizes have made up five per cent of the land makeup in southeast Queensland and he predicts the next decade will see that rise to 15 per cent while traditional allotments of 650m2 will drop from 30 per cent down to 10 per cent.

ewly elected Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce president Brendan Bathersby says investment in major infrastructure projects across the region has seen a significant rise in business confidence over the past year. “A good indicator of whether business is buzzing in a city is how many cranes are on the skyline and, if you look at Maroochydore at the moment, there is a fair bit going on,” he says. “Down on ground level, there is also a

good vibe because of the major landmark projects underway that will transform this region into a really vibrant commercial hub.” Mr Bathersby says the new Maroochydore City Centre, the expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport, the subsea broadband cable and the promise of passenger and light rail options are piquing interest in the region amongst Queensland’s corporate circles. “Maroochydore is being seen as an exciting place where great things are

happening, where the local council is engaged and where the business community is innovative and dynamic,” he adds. “The creation of a new CBD is critical for the growth of the region because it gives the Sunshine Coast a commercial focus and, after years of planning and foundations works, we are seeing the new Maroochydore City Centre come out of the ground.” Mr Bathersby says the expansion of the airport will place Maroochydore more firmly on the international business and tourism map while the subsea cable – set to deliver the fastest telecommunications and data connection to Asia from the east coast of Australia – was boosting the Coast’s burgeoning start-up and technology industry. “A key piece in making Maroochydore an attractive prospect for new business is improved rail infrastructure,” he says. “It is vital that heavy rail comes to Maroochydore and that light rail is introduced to improve transport between different parts of the Sunshine Coast.” Mr Bathersby says strong confidence is also reflected within the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce with a number of local business leaders joining the newly formed 2019-20 executive committee and membership at its highest levels. “We’ve enjoyed steady growth over the past few years and we are working hard to deliver more value for our members while also advocating for better infrastructure for our region,” Brendan says.

FINAL WORD Maroochydore is being seen as an exciting place where great things are happening

FIRST CBD TENANT SETS SIGHTS ON FUTURE SUCCESS Q&A with Matt Greenough Director, Bespoke Investment Group Q: Why did you decide to be among the first tenants to commit to the new CBD? A: Our business is heavily involved around investing in the Sunshine Coast and surrounding area and the new CBD forms a massive part of that growth in the coming years. My business partners and I are very excited to be investing in Foundation Place, the first building to be built in the new city centre. Q: What do you hope for the future of Maroochydore City Centre? A: At the moment, a lot of our inquiry is coming from southern investors. A lot of people are still not familiar with what is coming to the CBD and what it means for the community in the area. We’re excited about what’s going to happen here, now and into the future, and that’s a big part of the reason we have invested in here early. Q: Was it an easy choice to be an early adopter in the CBD? A: Definitely. Our company is geared around property-centric businesses and we are looking forward to being assimilated with like companies to take advantage of that.

with MWP’s man in the water

So there seems to be talk about a Kelly Slater wave pool at Coolum. What would you pay per wave? $100 per wave? Back of envelope numbers: $30–$40 million investment with expectations of a 10 per cent return ($4 million per annum). You would need to turn over $300,000 per week or 20 waves an hour at $179 a wave, based on 12 hours a day, seven days a week. If they do left and right waves at the same time that would make it $90 per wave. Keep in mind heli skiing in the US charges $150 per run. Additional income – food, alcohol, photography, board hire, wetsuits. Maybe it could work. Trivia – Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb makes all of its profit from photography. Laters.
