FROM THE EDITOR
have come to realise that cancer does not discriminate. You can be wealthy, poor, educated, uneducated, young or old. Sure, lifestyle factors come into play, but even healthy people can receive a life-changing diagnosis. I have also learned that cancer is no longer a non-negotiable death sentence. Treatment is more affordable, and awareness is higher than ever before. New technology and the world’s greatest brains are making sure of this. In fact, medical experts believe an increasing number of cancers will become manageable chronic diseases – a positive sign that we are making advances in this battle. October is Pinktober – a time to raise awareness of breast cancer. Two years ago, statistics indicated that one in eight Australian women would be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. At first I was shocked to discover that figure, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, now stands at one in seven. So, why the change? The increase has been linked to improved detection and screening tests. People are also more aware and are making proactive choices when it comes to their health. The positive news is that survival rates continue to grow. So, this month, let’s throw our support behind all of the women, men and families who have travelled, or are travelling, this road. A huge thank you to the beautiful Ashleigh Vidaic for sharing her story this week. Stories such as Ashleigh’s highlight the need for continued awareness.

Nick Britt is an award-winning entertainer who has performed in front of one million people. He has travelled the world creating and performing 300-plus events each year and is a popular keynote speaker at conferences and a headline act on cruise ships. He is well-known on the Sunshine Coast as Nickleby the Magician and was trained by his father, who has been a touring full-time magician for 40 years.
Your greatest regret? Not using my time more wisely in my twenties. I used to watch way too many movies.
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression”
What are you watching right now? Unreal on Stan. Totally bingeworthy. It’s behind the scenes of a reality show similar to The Bachelor.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? Packing up everything in Christchurch nine years ago and moving to the Sunshine Coast (my wife’s home town). The Coast has been incredibly kind to us, doors have opened up for our business and we have formed friendships that have had a huge impact on us as a family. I received a phone call from my sister three months after leaving Christchurch. She sounded terrified – there had just been a huge earthquake. It’s hard being away from family and friends who have had a challenging few years, however I feel like the Sunshine Coast is now home.

If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Jamie Oliver, David Copperfield and Michael McIntyre.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Noosa National Park. I love going for walks to escape the noise and clear my head. It’s so peaceful with such incredible scenery, the best in the world. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? More events and nightlife activities for families. Best day in your life and why? My wedding day! It was the beginning of our biggest adventure.
If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I would invest into my business, maybe employ a brilliant writer so I can work with them to improve my live shows and hire a manager so I can finally give my wife a break. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee, soy piccolo at 6am to wake me up and 2.45pm to get me through the school pick-up.

The name Caloundra comes from Kal’owen-dha or cullawanda, meaning place of beech trees. Galouwen-dja Kal’owen-dha, meaning place of beech trees, is derived from kal’owen, beech tree (Gmelina leichardtii) and dha, abbreviated from dhagun, meaning place. Beech trees were plentiful in the area before being cut out by the timber getters.
Ketchup was initially made from fish or mushrooms, until, in 1834, Dr John Cooke Bennet added tomatoes and claimed his tomato sauce could cure a range of illnesses. It was then sold as tomato pills.

LIKE A GIRL
Breast cancer survival rates are improving in this country, but we still have a long way to go before we beat the disease. Australian women are reminded to give themselves a fighting chance and check their breasts. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
adies, it’s time to check your breasts. The message this Breast Cancer Awareness Month is that no matter what your age, early detection gives you the best chance of survival. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer diagnosed in Australian women, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) estimates more than 19,300 Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. The disease develops when cells in the breast grow abnormally and multiply to form a tumour. Thanks to medical research, cancer contained in the breast is largely treatable. Since the NBCF started funding research in 1994, five-year breast cancer survival rates have improved from 76 per cent to 91 per cent. While this is definitely cause for celebration, too many women die from the disease – eight Australian women lose their cancer fight every day. Breast cancer is not one disease, but a complex group of different types of tumours. Thanks to fundraising to pay for cutting-edge research, scientists have discovered tumours act and respond differently to treatments at a molecular level, so there is no one-sizefits-all treatment or single breakthrough applicable to all types of breast cancer. Researchers are looking for the answers to all known subtypes of breast cancer. Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt says

“Too many women die from the disease – eight Australian women lose their cancer fight every day”
there are a number of changes that will help to make breast cancer treatments more accessible. From November 1, Medicare will subsidise breast cancer scans (saving women up to $1500 per scan) and PET scans for advanced breast cancer, saving up to $1000 per scan. Mr Hunt says the government has also increased its commitment to McGrath Foundation breast cancer nurses, with an additional $27.7 million, ensuring the number of Commonwealth-funded nurses rises from 57 to 98 by 2022-23. “We continue to list the latest proven treatments for breast cancer on the PBS,” he says. “In May, Ibrance [palbociclib] was listed for patients with inoperable or metastatic hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. Around 3000 women each year will benefit from this decision. Without the PBS subsidy, Ibrance would cost around $55,000 for a year’s treatment.” Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program (CMBCP) co-ordinator Lisa Daldy has been in her role for the past five years and says there have been “amazing in-roads” in treatment options and services in that time. Ms Daldy says the CMBCP, which is based
at Buderim Private Hospital, is linked with the hospital’s qualified breast scanner, who provides patients with support and a great amount of information. “We have been providing the service for over 10 years and have helped in excess of 400 women on the Sunshine Coast since we began. That is about the same number of women on the Coast diagnosed every year,” she says. When women go to CMBCP, they are asked what would be most helpful to them. “This way, we can tailor support to each individual or family,” Ms Daldy says. “Their most pressing need could be payment of a bill because they have had to stop working while undergoing treatment, it could be an emotional support need or a desire to get referrals for other services. “It’s such a privilege and a blessing to be able to help women with these things, as well as give them the opportunity to make some incredible memories with their families. We lost [Coast identity] Donna Penny recently and she was very dear to us. It is always incredibly hard when we lose people like her who have fought an amazing fight. “In keeping with the legacy of Cindy
CMBCP’s Lisa Daldy and nurse Jo Ricardi Mackenzie, the Sunshine Coast mother who started this foundation, we want to reach as many people as possible and help them.” As part of Pinktober, Buderim Private Hospital has launched the Flamingo Fundraiser, where you can buy ornamental flamingoes for $5 and take them home or place them in the hospital’s memorial garden in memory of a lost loved one, or in support of a woman who is battling cancer. There are a number of events being held this month, including the annual Pinktober Lunch at the Mooloolaba Surf Club on Wednesday, October 23.

ashleigh my story Free routine mammographic screening is available for women aged 50 to 74 through BreastScreen Australia. Women 40 to 49 years old can also have mammograms and women younger than 40 are recommended to self-examine. Be familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts. If you notice a change, consult your GP. Changes to look out for when doing a breast self-exam include: • A new lump or lumpiness, especially if it’s only in one breast. • Your breast changing in size or shape. • Any changes to the nipple, such as redness, inversion, crusting or discharge without squeezing. • A change in the skin, such as redness or dimpling. • An unusual pain that doesn’t disappear. • Check your breasts regularly, at the same time every month, and remember to check up to your armpit. In most cases, changes to the breast aren’t symptoms of cancer, but if you notice a change, see your doctor straight away. SOURCE: NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION. EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW THE RISK FACTORS. VISIT BREASTCANCERRISKFACTORS.GOV.AU
Ashleigh Vidaic, 26, is a former University of the Sunshine Coast student. In July she found out she had breast cancer. Follow her on Instagram @ashvidaic #checkyourboobs
found a lump on my right breast. All of a sudden, it was there. It seemed to come up overnight. I didn’t know what it was and thought it was weird, but whenever I spoke to someone about it, they brushed it off – ‘It could be hormones, have you had your period?’ In the back of my mind, I wondered if it could be cancer, but I didn’t actually think it would be. I cross-checked what I saw with common symptoms online and they weren’t matching, so I didn’t give it much thought. “It was six months later, at the end of June, when I went to see my GP. It wasn’t going away. The GP ordered an ultrasound. “After the scan a couple of weeks later, all they could tell me was that it wasn’t a cyst; it was a mass about 2.3 centimetres long. I had the lump biopsied. My GP called the next day, asking me to book an appointment with her. I said I was busy and asked if we could make it on the weekend. But she was insistent. She’d had the results rushed over and she wanted me to come over that night. Later, she called again. ‘I’ve got the results here, it’s best if you bring someone with you for support.’ I instantly knew it was not good. I cried. “They had found cancer cells in the biopsy results. I was the only one in the room who didn’t cry that day. My dad, step mum and boyfriend had come with me. I guess I’d got it out of my system that afternoon. “That day was July 2, 2019 and it has been go, go, go since then. My mindset has always been looking at what the next step is. My cancer is triple-negative, which means it’s not responsive to hormones, so the only way to treat it is with chemotherapy. “I was given so much information, telling you what to expect and how to deal with it. I was given the option to have a lumpectomy straight away and follow it up with treatment, or to have chemo first and then remove anything that’s left afterwards. The benefit of the latter is that we will be able to see how well the tumour responds to chemo and it

will be targeting any microscopic cells that may be elsewhere in my body. When they told me I would lose my hair, I broke down. “Because I am young and don’t have kids yet, I was told there was a 70 to 80 per cent chance of my fertility returning back to normal after my treatment. Even still, I thought about options to harvest some eggs just in case. The doctor would need roughly a month for me to undergo a round of IVF to harvest as many eggs as possible. “But a month is a long time to wait given I have triple-negative breast cancer, which is aggressive. It was too long. I had to start treatment ASAP. Within a few days of meeting my oncologist, my treatment plan was tailor made for my cancer; two different cycles. “Cycle one was once a fortnight for eight weeks on the drug AC, one of the strongest chemo drugs out there. The side effects were full on – nausea, fatigue, constipation was a big one, you pretty much feel like s**t until your next one. You start to feel better 10 days after and they hit you again. I can best describe it as feeling like you’ve got the flu, but are hung over as well, times 100. “At the end of September, I started cycle two, which is paclitaxel every week for 12
weeks. This one has fewer side effects and I’ve been able to go back to work. I do my treatments on a Friday and compared with the first cycle, this one is a walk in the park. “If everything goes well with my treatment, which will finish on December 6, I will be able to have surgery before Christmas. I had genetic testing done and I came back BRCA1 positive, which means there is a risk of other cancers coming up. This has influenced my surgery decision and I am having a double mastectomy and reconstruction. “I’ve taken it in my stride because it is what it is. I’m fighting it and moving on. I don’t want this to ever come back. I’ve had hard days, but I have a great support system and my family is always around me. “I encourage women to listen to their bodies. If something doesn’t seem right, go and get it checked out, don’t put these things off. It took me six months to go and get it looked at and my tumour could have been a hell of a lot smaller, it could also have spread the longer I left it. My outlook on life now has totally changed and I don’t take things for granted. There is nothing more important than your health. Be proactive and check your breasts.”

Mr Dellow will head to the XVII Australian Masters Games in Adelaide, which will be held from October 5 to 12, to compete in the bench press component of the powerlifting event. His goal is to beat the world record in the over 75 age group for bench pressing by lifting 110 kilograms. Mr Dellow began powerlifting at the age of 72 and holds the Australian, New Zealand, Commonwealth and Oceania bench press records in the 70-to-75-year age group. His Australian record is 130 kilograms.
Sunshine Plaza Riverwalk is set to welcome two new exiting dining options, with El Camino Cantina and Frantelli Fresh preparing to open in a matter of weeks. Both restaurants will create 45 full-time and casual positions. They have also supported the economy by engaging about 50 professionals and tradespeople. Frantelli Fresh will accommodate 154 guests and will offer the ultimate seasonal, movable feasts. El Camino Cantina can cater for up to 250 with a colourful venue ablaze with neon lights and fluorescent signage. The restaurants are the latest addition from Rockpool Dining Group, which also owns The Bavarian restaurant.

ACCESSIBILITY THE KEY FOR MURPHY HOMES
Bli Bli Unite Fun Run & Walk has raised more than $20,000 for domestic violence education and victim support. The third annual event broke records both in terms of the number of participants and the funds raised. The event, which was organised by Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch and Bli Bli Little Athletics, attracted 411 participants. The funds raised were presented to White Ribbon Sunshine Coast and domestic violence refuges.
Murphy Homes has launched a national initiative called Project Silver in partnership with Parent to Parent (P2P), an award-winning not-for-profit that supports people with a disability. The two local organisations share a dream in common – to design and build homes for anyone of any age or ability, to enable homeowners to remain in their own home if faced with injury, disability or changing family needs. The launch of Project Silver will mean Murphy Homes is the first builder to make Livable Housing Australia (LHA) Silver level homes its default standard home design, and the Sunshine Coast region will be the first in Australia to adopt a new building standards benchmark.
SUNNYKIDS FAREWELLS FOUNDER CHRIS TURNER
SHARKS CIRCLE THE SUNSHINE COAST
Sunshine Coast-based not-for-profit organisation SunnyKids has farewelled its CEO and board member Chris Turner. Mr Turner, who founded SunnyKids in 2003, has stepped down from the role to enjoy more time with his family and pursue personal interests. SunnyKids president and board member Sally Desch says SunnyKids will not only continue to provide its programs to support vulnerable children on the Coast, but also look to increase its frontline services. SunnyKids has a fabulous line-up of 2020 events including the Golf Classic, Mayoral Ball, Wine Makers’ Masterclass, and other events. To donate or learn more about SunnyKids services visit sunnykids.org.au.
The Sunshine Coast will host two NRL premiership fixtures in 2020 and 2021, with Sunshine Coast Council and the Cronulla Sharks forming a new commercial partnership. Under the agreement, Cronulla will play one of its allocated ‘home’ games at Sunshine Coast Stadium for each of the next two years. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the new partnership is another huge vote of confidence in the Sunshine Coast, which proved its credentials as an NRL premiership host venue in April this year, when a sell-out crowd attended the round five clash between South Sydney and the New Zealand Warriors. “I’m sure our passionate rugby league community will be extremely keen to support both the Sharks and Rabbitohs like they did in April,” he says.

oris Billing’s landscaping business in Goondiwindi has been a little quiet of late, with the western Queensland town firmly in the grips of one of the worst droughts in history. But the part-time musician quips that means he’s had plenty of time to organise Sounds From the Borderline, a music festival unlike anything the town has ever seen, and he’s calling for people around Australia to saddle up and head out to Goondiwindi to have a great time for a good cause. Mr Billing says the drought has penetrated every facet of life in Goondiwindi with businesses closing, farmers being forced to sell and families moving away due to lack of work. There has been no rain there for an extended period and Mr Billing says few crops have been planted and there is no feed for stock – farmers have been buying hay, cotton seed, supplements and anything they can get their hands on to keep their animals healthy. That is if they can afford it, he says. “All of this means zero income, local recession extremes, depression and worse, a completely sh*t situation. Despite all that, the town certainly has been soldiering on and it’s not all doom and gloom… we’re hanging in there. “Yes, this drought has us on our knees, but we are not asking for a handout – we are asking for a hand up.”

Boris Billings In fact, Mr Billing is asking for people to throw their hands in the air and celebrate with some of Australia’s greatest musicians at the inaugural Sounds From the Borderline festival on October 26. The line-up features Aussie talent including headliner James Reyne, plus Diesel, Shannon Noll, Moving Pictures, Bachelor Girl and the Colt Seavers Band.
Speaking to My Weekly Preview, Mr Billings says he was inspired when he attended a concert with a similar format earlier in the year. The small town event attracted more than 3000 people, providing a huge economic injection for the weekend. “I wanted to find a way to do something to help my community through the power of music to try and inject some much-needed vitality and relief,” he says. “The idea really hit a chord and the locals are really keen to have something positive like this come to town. We have had more than 60 local individuals and businesses contribute to the event in some form or another, which is great considering how tough times are at the moment.” Mr Billing teamed up with Q Live Events promoter Rick Szabo to secure the musical talent and the event quickly took flight. “There is a great buzz in town as we build up to the event. This is the biggest thing we’ve ever done out here and it will be a very nice distraction from the drought for the town,” Mr Billing says. “What we really need now is our city and country friends to buy a ticket to the gig. Bring a few mates and have a bloody great time out here.” Goondiwindi is hosting the annual Lanescape Festival on October 25 and Mr Billing says people who are travelling from the Sunshine Coast can arrive on the Friday
to check out the twilight street festival event and celebrate art in the painted Bowen Lane with live music and plenty of eateries to choose from. Guests will then have the morning to enjoy the sights before heading to Sounds From the Borderline from 2pm on Saturday. “After a sleep in on Sunday, enjoy a well-earned coffee and delicious breakfast in town – and why not go on one of our famous farm tours, check out the botanical gardens or go and see the water park?” he says. “Goondiwindi is a very special place, I was born here, and we always band together. It has blown my mind to see the level of support for each other through these extreme weather conditions.” Goondiwindi Regional Council Mayor Graeme Scheu says it is exciting to see such high-profile acts come to town. “Judging by the support from the town, this will be bigger than when Bob Geldof performed here. We encourage people to visit and explore what is regional Australia at its best,” he says.
Sounds from the Borderline is partnering with Care Goondiwindi, donating $5 from every ticket sold to the organisation to assist with the support and assistance programs for residents. They provide mental health programs and support farmers with living expenses to see them through these tough times. Those attending the event are encouraged to bring along nonperishable food donations to be distributed by Care Goondiwindi and those who can’t make it to the event can still donate through their website, caregoondiwindi.com.au.
Camping sites are available at the festival site for an additional cost to the festival ticket. Please ensure you bring your own water supply for the weekend. For more details, visit soundsfromtheborderline.com.au.

Ultramarathon hero headed our way Dean Karnazes hasn’t seen nothin’ yet – wait till he takes on the Blackall 100. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
cclaimed American ultramarathon runner Dean Karnazes is heading our way for the Blackall 100 race to be held in Mapleton on October 19. The world-renowned runner and author of Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner famously completed 50 marathons in 50 states of the US in 50 days straight and also ran a marathon to the South Pole. Now he’s headed to our region to take on the picturesque 100-kilometre race across the Blackall Range. While he’s never run the Blackall 100, it’s not the first time he has visited our shores and says he’s a big fan of the Sunshine Coast. “My parents spent a year living in Bundaberg where my mother taught school and I visited the Sunshine Coast several times,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “The Sunshine Coast is one of my favourite places on Earth. I was an exchange student and attended high school in Sydney for a year – well, I attended school when the surf wasn’t up. Coming from California, I was a big surfer and the waves in Australia were too alluring. I spent a lot of time travelling the coast. “I’m looking forward to running the Blackall 100. I don’t know much about it by design. I want to experience it first-hand and not let any preconceived notions cloud
my vision. I view ultramarathons as exploration in this way.” Mr Karnazes loved running as a child but stopped as a teenager and didn’t start again until the night of his 30th birthday, when he walked out of a pub “quite inebriated” and decided to run 30 miles (48 kilometres) to celebrate his birthday. He had a successful career in business but deep down, was unhappy. “During that drunken night of my 30th
“The Sunshine Coast is one of my favourite places on Earth”
birthday, I felt the power of running. When I became sober at 2am, I didn’t want to stop. Running made me feel free. I ran all night without sleep and it was the most liberating thing I had ever done. “I was never comfortable being a businessman. Sure, the money was great, but I felt no sense of internal fulfilment. It was a numb existence of one corporate meeting after another. The night of my 30th birthday was the

LOCAL NEWS catalyst that changed everything.” His success as a marathon runner has led Mr Karnazes to be named one of TIME magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People in the World and Men’s Fitness to hail him one of the fittest men on the planet. He has written four books, is a New York Times bestselling author and a sought-after public speaker. There’s not much this man has not accomplished, but there’s one feat he is yet to achieve. “My new dream goal is to run a marathon in every country of the world,” he says. “I’ve been working on this project for five years and still haven’t succeeded. People ask me if I ever fail? Well, I’ve been failing at this particular project for five years and will continue failing until one day I succeed.” Mr Karnazes plans to explore the Sunshine Coast while he’s here and is looking forward to meeting the Sunshine Coast community. Run Queensland, the North Face and Sunshine Coast Council will host A Night with Dean on Thursday, October 17. This will include a presentation, book signing and Q&A. It will be held at Maroochy RSL and doors open at 6.30pm. For tickets visit tridentresults. com/event/397/shop.

he creative arts industry on the Sunshine Coast is undergoing somewhat of a revolution, with more students enrolling in eight of TAFE Queensland (East Coast) creative industries courses to prepare themselves for the jobs of the future. According to data published by the Australian Government’s Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, the Sunshine Coast’s arts and recreation services sector is set to experience a 10.9 per cent growth in employment opportunities over the next five years. TAFE Queensland (East Coast) team leader for creative and digital Robert DellaPiana says the creative industry is already booming on the Sunshine Coast. “This is a promising area for people in creative areas to venture onto a professional level and with infrastructure like the new international submarine cable, which is due here in 2020, just around the corner, there is a huge opportunity for the creative industry to jump on board and capitalise while creating a whole lot of new jobs as well,” he says. “The creative industry has really benefitted from the sheer amount of creative input that goes into social media and the internet. As a result of this, there is a higher demand for creatives of all levels, from small to medium and large businesses. “As far as the economy is concerned, it is

an increasingly competitive task to get your product out there and to sell it, so a creative approach is really important. We need new creative ways of marketing and that’s where people come into it, especially in areas like photography, graphic design, visual arts,
fashion, music, hair, beauty, and screen and media.” TAFE graduates across all eight creative courses will converge on the Mooloolaba campus, which will come alive in a kaleidoscope of colour, concepts and
creativity on November 22 for the inaugural CRE8 Festival. Talented students will take centre stage at the event, showcasing their work between 6pm and 9pm in a range of awe-inspiring displays, including galleries, pop-up shops, performances and a fashion parade. In addition to admiring students’ work, the public and local industry will be able to enjoy the festival environment of CRE8, with a variety of installations, entertainers, and food trucks. Mr DellaPiana says the event will provide photography, graphic design, visual arts, fashion, music, hair, beauty, and screen and media students with the opportunity to exhibit the amazing work they have created using the skills they’ve developed throughout their courses. “CRE8 is a fantastic platform for these students to get their names out there and launch their careers in the local industry. “In previous years, our creative showcases have connected our graduating students with industry and given them valuable contacts that have helped them succeed, and CRE8 will do this once again – just on a much larger scale.”

IF YOU GO
GETTING THERE: Hervey Bay is a two-and-a-half hour drive from the Sunshine Coast, and is located east of the heritage town of Maryborough.
My Weekly Preview’s editor was craving the perfect mini escape, and she found it just north of the Sunshine Coast, at humble Hervey Bay. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.
t has been many years since I last holidayed in Hervey Bay. But with two clear days up my sleeve – and craving a mini getaway – I figured there was no time like the present to explore this beachside favourite. With my mother and five-year-old son in tow, I hit the road early one sunny Saturday morning. Two-and-a-half hours – and endless games of I Spy – later, we navigated through the busy CBD towards the southern end of the Bay. Here you will find the immensely popular marina – home of whale watching tours and The Hervey Bay Boat Club, with its spectacular views and family-style food. The club’s expansive deck offers views of the blue sky and the dozens of boats bobbing on the water. The excited squeals of children, scrambling on to the luxurious
Spirit of Hervey Bay vessel in anticipation of whale spotting, waft in the background. The region, which is bordered by the Great Sandy Straits and world-famous Fraser Island, is a humpback whale’s playground from July to November when the creatures migrate north to warmer water. Cruising alongside these majestic whales is a special experience. However, even without hitting the ocean, there is still plenty to do in the Bay. Whether you choose to try your luck and throw in a line from the 868-metre historic Urangan Pier, splash with the kids at the eco-friendly WetSide Water Park or sprawl out on a picnic mat in one of the waterfront green parks (we like the area opposite Planet 72 Icecreamery), Hervey Bay is the quiet place where colourful memories are made.
STAYING THERE: The hub of this beachside town stretches from Point Vernon in the north to Urangan in the south. The esplanade and surrounding areas are home to a variety of accommodation options ranging from motels to holiday lettings, and international resorts. We stayed at the four-and-a-half star Akama Resort, which is perched opposite the popular marina. The contemporary resort offers one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with openplan living, sunny balconies, modern furnishings and views across to Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Strait. The pool is heated and there is a lovely barbecue area for the family to enjoy. Prices start from $225 in the low season for a twobedroom pool view apartment. Visit akamaresort.com.au EATING THERE: Fans of My Kitchen Rules – or good food – won’t want to miss a visit to Eat at Dan and Steph’s. Located on the esplanade and owned by the MKR season four winners, local ingredients and fresh produce are key to this cafe’s success. The all-day menu dishes up everything from bacon and egg gnocchi to barramundi po boy and chocolate hotcakes – yum! Lovers of Mexican food will enjoy the Tacos & Tequila Friday and Saturday night events. Visit danandsteph.com.au Another favourite is the Hervey Bay Boat Club, which dishes up family-friendly fare with a side of ocean views. Visit boatclub.com.au

SUNSHINE COAST COUNCIL PROMOTION
Making international connections Submarine cable landing station construction complete.
roviding Queensland’s first direct international data and telecommunications connection to global markets is another step closer with the completion of the cable landing station at Maroochydore. The cable landing station will house the connection point for the international submarine cable with landside communication networks and is a vital piece of infrastructure in a project that will deliver
much needed diversity for Australia’s international communication needs, as well significant economic benefits for the Sunshine Coast and Queensland. Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson was joined by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick on September 26 to mark the completion of the $7.2-million facility. The completion of the cable landing
station marked another milestone in the delivery of the Sunshine Coast international broadband network. Unlike traditional cable landing stations that are normally non-descript buildings out of view from the general public, our landing station is designed to reflect council’s design vision for the Maroochydore city centre. Our Sunshine Coast will offer the fastest data and telecommunications transmission from the eastern seaboard of Australia to Asia once the submarine cable comes ashore and is in service next year. It will help to position our region to become Australia’s first Digital Trade Hub – taking a region-wide approach to data and digital connectivity which will benefit a wide cross-section of businesses and industries. Projects such as the Sunshine Coast International Broadband Network enable our region, its economy and our community to be well-positioned to respond to the rapidly evolving demands of the 21st century. When completed, this network will provide direct international data and telecommunications from the Sunshine Coast – the only location in Australia outside of Sydney and Perth to provide this direct international connectivity. This will afford a significant step change to the Sunshine Coast’s attractiveness as an investment location. As the first local government in Australia to secure an investment in an international submarine cable, our council is yet again at the forefront of thinking outside the square, securing new revenue sources and pursuing opportunities to generate economic and employment growth as a major dividend for our residents, thus ensuring we continue to be Australia’s healthy, smart, creative region.

How is council delivering a healthy environment and a liveable Sunshine Coast?
FROM THE MAYOR Australia’s biggest netball festival is taking place in Mooloolaba and Maroochydore from October 10–13, 2019. Sunshine Coast Council is a proud sponsor of this event. As we play host to thousands of participants, it’s timely to highlight the benefits our region reaps from the tourism, sport and leisure industry. Visitor expenditure injected close to $3.3 billion into the region’s economy in 2018. That’s why Sunshine Coast Council works to attract major conferences and events to the region, to ensure we continue to benefit from this high-value industry. Our region has undeniably earnt its reputation as a crowd favourite for leisure and conference visitors. Netfest, and other major events, provide a welcome boost to the wider economy, creating and sustaining jobs, and supporting others connected to the accommodation, retail and event industry supply-chain. I hope Netfest participants and supporters enjoy the four days of competition and our wonderful upgraded facilities at the Maroochydore Multi-Sport Complex. Mark Jamieson Mayor Sunshine Coast Council

TIME FOR BUBBLES
KICKING THE HABIT
As the weather warms and she contemplates champagne season, Sami Muirhead reflects on the advice she’s been given.
An enforced break from her smartphone has Leigh Robshaw seeing the light, and pondering a more permanent separation from technology.
is nearly the season to be jolly. No, I don’t mean Christmas. I am referring to champagne season. Some countries have rabbithunting season (gross), others go crazy for cricket season (yawn). Us Aussies are fast developing another time of year where we unequivocally get excited – bubbly season. Aussies knock back approximately eight million bottles of champagne every year, 40 per cent of which gets consumed from November to February. Impressive or embarrassing? Well I am a bubbly kind of girl and in summer nothing is more festive than a glass of liquid gold. What did Dom Pérignon say about drinking champagne? “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars!” I assume this eight million bottles of plonk statistic is the fancy stuff. Labelled champagne, it is the good stuff and must come from that region in France. So my mind boggles as to how many million bottles of sparkling vino are guzzled in addition during this silly season. Our bubbly obsession has also started chatter on social media about the old theory that whacking a spoon upside down in a half-finished bottle of plonk keeps it fresh. I am unsure of any scientific credibility here but it’s something I have done my whole life. It got me thinking about all that good advice we take in our lives and follow blindly (thanks Mumsy). There was walking to and from school with corn cob holders in my pocket in case some lunatic attacked me.
“Just stab them as hard as you can in the groin dear,” my mum would tell me cheerily. My best friend (and those people from Le-Tan) taught me that it was great to smother your body in coconut tanning lotion and lie in the sun for hours on end. I am paying for that these days as sun spots pop up on my skin like celebrities in singing or dancing shows. Other life aspects from the 1980s that were completely normal at the time? Spending the day driving to Double Island bouncing around with six other kids in the back of the ute. No seat belts, booster seats or side airbags. Nope. We just sat in the back of the ute and held onto the side as we rode along the blue shoreline in total bliss, sucking in the salt air and sometimes my dad’s ciggies if the smoke blew out the window and into our faces. We’ve come a long way, haven’t we? Or maybe not. Either way its time to enjoy the bubbly season, set to officially commence in a matter of weeks (hello Flemington). May you have no hangovers and find affordable bubbles to celebrate the good times. May you avoid spillages and glass breakages. May you swerve the liquid gold frothing over the side of the flute in excitement and may you too taste the stars. And for the record, the experts say whacking that upside down spoon in the half empty bottle of champers doesn’t actually work. Yet another fail in the evolution of life lessons for those of us who grew up in the ’80s. All good I say. Cheers.

Art on the Green
he zombie apocalypse is here, people. You see them in the streets, in restaurants, schools, supermarkets, parks, gyms, buses, trains and cinemas. They walk across roads in front of cars without looking up. They’re not the brain-eating, drooling zombies seen in films. They look a lot like you and me. In fact, they are you and me. We’ve become phone zombies, slaves to our insidiously addictive devices that we carry with us like an extra appendage. Everywhere you look, you’ll see someone with their head buried in a phone, ignoring the person they’re with, who also has their head buried in a phone. My phone died in the first week of the school holidays, a day before we were due to go away on a much-needed break. It was under warranty and I was told it would take a week for a replacement phone to arrive. The guy at the computer shop asked me if I wanted a temporary replacement phone. I thought about it for second and decided I did not. I wanted to go on a holiday with my kids and NOT TAKE MY PHONE. It was the best holiday I’ve had in a long time. After the initial withdrawal symptoms dissipated, I relaxed into a slower pace, reading books, swimming, flying kites, playing frisbee and kicking a ball around with my two boys. I was able to be fully present with them and truly relax. It was an enforced digital detox I didn’t realise I needed. After a few days, I found
myself not missing my phone at all and dreading the day I got it back. As I walked into town, I passed restaurants full of phone zombies seated at window tables. Couples glued to their phones, rather than each other. Parents ignoring their kids while they scrolled through Facebook and Instagram (yes, I perved at their screens). It wasn’t so much that I was judging them – I’ve been a phone zombie too. I just felt sad. Sad at how much of our real lives and the real world we are missing when we have our noses buried in our phones. The truth is out – the software developers have used brain science for evil. They have ushered in the zombie apocalypse by creating the most addictive devices humans have ever known, tapping right into our brains’ dopamine reward system. We’re complete suckers because we’ve allowed them direct access to our brains, let them infiltrate our relationships, suck the life out of us until we no longer resemble the people we once were. “Sorry darling, mummy’s doing something really important on her phone right now, you’ll just have to wait.” What a crock. It’s rarely something so important I can’t put the phone down and look at the paper plane my five-year-old just made. Just six days away from my phone made me realise that. I’m even contemplating going back to a dumb phone, because smartphones aren’t making us smarter or happier. They’re hijacking our lives.

SUPERJESUS’ SARAH MCLEOD TO PERFORM The Superjesus creative force Sarah McLeod will be the first to perform at the Sunshine Coast’s latest live music venue, Malt Shovel Taphouse. She will take to the stage on November 14, and venue owner Ian Van der Woude says it is an exciting event for locals. “She is a legend in the industry and this is going to be a live experience never to forget,’’ he says. Ms McLeod says, “I find that when I’m playing in The Superjesus, for me it’s more about playing the guitar. My solo shows are a different though. The guitar work is really simple and its all about the singing. I really love the peace in playing solo.” Boutique gastro pub Malt Shovel Taphouse is set to open on October 12 at The Avenue at Stockland Birtinya. Tickets to the Sarah McLeod show are now available, oztix.com.au (search Sarah McLeod).

To bring awareness to one of the most important dates on the calendar – Pinktober – we have compiled some of our favourite homewares products in the month’s signature hue. What are you waiting for? Pink up!
The fuchsia Bridie glass pendant is from Lighting Illusions.
2. The Keepsake Velvet Suitcase Set might be exclusively designed for Adairs Kids, but we love it all the same! With a velvet outer and brass hardware, these stylish suitcases are a fun way to store your favourite items. Adairs is located at Sunshine Coast Home, Maroochydore.
The stone-washed polyester Bianca Sasha coverlet set in pink is intricately embroidered with a classic scallop pattern. Pair with off-white, buttercup yellow or green hues. It’s from Adairs.
product alert! We love the Naked Pink hue from Dulux. This soft tone can be used as a feature wall or to introduce accents of colour into a room. Pastels look terrific when used in a natural-light filled room as the combination creates a pretty effect.
How pretty is this delicate floral lantern from Domayne! It allows candle light to filter through its petals for a soft glow. Domayne is located at the Maroochydore Homemaker Centre.

2020’s BATHROOM TRENDS
From subdued tiling to a strong environmental influence, the humble bathroom continues to come of age in terms of design and style.
we love! BIOPHILIC
32 My Weekly Preview | October 11, 2019
Biophilic Biophilic design centres on a connection with the natural environment in your home. It’s based on the hypothesis that humans have an inherent need to connect with nature. It’s about shaping the built environment to aid physical and mental health. To achieve the look: • Use skylights, large windows, glass doors and clerestory openings to invite natural light in. • Create indoor gardens that seamlessly complement the environment of the home. • Opt for natural materials such as concrete, timber, stone and marble. • Incorporate neutral earth tones and varying blues, greens and greys.
Open showers The trend towards doorless showers is gaining momentum. Also known as a ‘walk-in shower’, this design looks stylish and, if it means one less glass panel to clean, then we are sold!
4/10/2019 1:06:05 PM
Focus on fixtures We love the less-is-more approach, and this bathroom style centres itself perfectly on this. The concept is to strip back on colour and decor. Instead, let the basics shine. Install contemporary taps, sinks, showerheads and cabinetry.
Toned tiles Loud, fanciful tiling is out, and subtle, stylish flooring is in. In 2020, we will see monochromatic looks, but still with plenty of texture and soft splashes of colour. Beautiful marble will shine in any bathroom.
Wet room Designers are moving towards an updated version of the traditional wet room, and we love it! For those who are unsure, a wet-room bathroom is a space where the shower is not enclosed. Rather, the water from the shower drains through an open, tiled floor area. Popularising the concept is the addition of a glass panel – placing both the shower and tub behind one clear wall. This way, there is less chance of water escaping, plus it brings a new sense of style to your bathroom.
For style and strength choose COLORBOND® Steel
product alert! We love the Bavaria Stone tile from Amber Tiles. It is simple, yet stunning and available in either black, grey or ice.

Inside Kimye’s NY pad The former New York apartment of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian has hit the market and design enthusiasts are celebrating the chance to get a peek inside the minimalist masterpiece. Designed by Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin, the Kardashian-West apartment in Soho has a calm, neutral colour palette, ceilings almost three metres high and a garden rooftop that offers 360-degree views of Manhattan. Marketed by CORE Real Estate with an asking price of the $US4.7 million, the monochromatic minimalism home overlooks one of downtown’s busiest cross-town thoroughfares. Mr West acquired the two fourth-floor units that comprise the house-sized Soho condo more than a dozen years ago in two transactions that totalled $US3.14 million. A sinuous hallway lined with cleverly disguised storage cabinets leads to a windowlined corner living/dining room with 10-foot
ceilings and white walls free of even an inch of fussy, extraneous moulding. Polished French limestone floors reflect the sunlight that pours in through a dozen-plus over-sized windows that provide a cinematic city view. Open to the dining area, the kitchen features top-end designer appliances, bespoke cabinetry and a massive stone island with integrated snack counter. The spacious master suite incorporates a dressing hallway lined with full-height wardrobes and a bathroom with radiant heated floor and huge stone island that integrates a sink and bathtub. Other notable comforts include a comprehensive home automation system, automated window shades and a custom lighting and audio program. There are also convenient in-unit laundry facilities and two private storage units in the basement. The Kardashian-Wests have their primary
home in the famously celebrified Hidden Hills enclave in LA. This multi-acre spread was purchased in three separate transactions between 2014 and early 2019 for a combined $US25.4 million. And, just this month, the couple were widely reported to be the mysterious buyers of a vast ranch in Wyoming, that was last listed at $US14 million. -Reuters/AAP
Coast buildings open their doors If you are looking for some inspiration a little closer to home, you won’t want to miss the 2019 Sunshine Coast Open House. This year’s program is expanding to a full weekend, to be held on October 19 and 20, and features 30 participating buildings across the region, including 13 buildings new to the program. Highlights include Bark Studio, Wilson Beach House, a stunning Alexandra Headland house, sustainable Mudjimba house and Caloundra Lighthouses. There will also be a panel discussion on October 18 centred on designing for multi-generational living, plus guided walking tours.

MY MY FUN
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
The week starts with a sun/Pluto square, which primes you to take on daunting challenges. But there’s also the potential for power struggles (especially with authority figures or colleagues) as the pressure builds at work.
With Venus visiting your partnership zone, it will be easier to sort out relationship problems than at other times, especially if you articulate your feelings and are prepared to compromise. The weekend is a good time to enjoy creative activities.
The potential is there for a positive week. Monday and Tuesday favour work projects and joint finances, while the weekend is wonderful for solving puzzles and fixing problems. Don’t underestimate the beneficial effect you can have on those around you.
Monday looks dramatic, as the sun and Pluto stir up trouble with loved ones. A double-dose of diplomacy is required. For the rest of the week the focus is on friendships. How to nurture them, keep them… and let them go if you have outgrown each other.
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
On Monday, the sun forms a tricky connection with Pluto. So try to temper your strong urge to rule the world and boss other people around. Instead, direct your fiery energy into pursuing an inspiring creative project.
Are you making the most of your marvellous Virgo mind? With Mercury and Venus both visiting your communication zone, you have the ability to affect others deeply with your imaginative ideas, thoughtful views and ethical values.
With hasty Mars moving through your sign and indulgent Venus visiting your money zone, watch that impulse buys don’t burn a hole in your budget. An unresolved family problem could also boomerang back and test you.
Still waters run deep on Monday! With the sun in your mystery zone (squaring Pluto) there’s more to everything than meets the eye. It will take your Scorpio discretion – and substantial detective talents – to distinguish fact from fantasy.

HOW LOW CAN IT GO? The nation’s official cash rate has been cut again, but property experts and economists predict it’s still downhill from here.
BIG BANKS ‘PROFITEERING’ ON RATE CUTS, SAYS PM
By Angus Livingston, AAP national economics writer
inder insights manager Graham Cooke says every cash rate cut is “a blessing to borrowers and a stick in the eye to savers”. This comes as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) lowered the cash rate to 0.75 per cent. Mr Cooke says of the 45 experts and economists who participated in this month’s RBA Cash Rate Survey, nearly Graham Cooke three-quarters of them predict the cash rate will reach 0.50 per cent before we see any possible rate rise. “The RBA uses each cut like a defibrillator to zap the economy back to life, but as the rate gets closer to zero, they are running out of options,” Mr Cooke says. “An injection of cash [quantitative easing] and the potential of a negative cash rate may be the only option to stimulate the economy.” Mr Cooke says there are opportunities for borrowers to save. “Some lenders have passed on the full 50-point reduction (from the June and July cuts), but most have not. After [the most recent] cut, you can expect to see more lenders offering variable rate loans that start with a ‘2’, so if yours doesn’t start with at least a ‘3’ it’s time to shop around,” he says. The cash rate drop is a welcome relief for HIA Sunshine Coast/Wide Bar branch manager Ken Smith, who says new home sales on the Sunshine Coast for the three months increased by three per cent on the preceding quarter, but remain down 19 per cent compared with this time last year. Recent interest rate cuts, a tax cut and the repeal of regulatory restrictions have not yet flowed through and Mr Smith says they will encourage increased activity in the home building market. “These measures, combined with ongoing stable population and employment growth, should see new home sales improve towards the end of the year,” he says. “First homebuyers are continuing to take advantage of a less competitive environment and more affordable house prices. “First homebuyers account for just under one third of the

WHAT THE RATE CUT MEANS FOR
The effect of the interest rate cut on home loans. Current variable rate of 3.42%** Full 25 basis points cut to 3.17% Loan size

total market; the continued growth of this segment is important for the broader housing market.” Mr Smith says the introduction of legislation by the Treasurer Josh Frydenberg to support the home ownership aspirations for 10,000 first homebuyers is a key milestone in delivering this important election commitment. “The First Home Loan Deposit Scheme, scheduled to commence in January, addresses one of the greatest hurdles facing those enthusiastically saving to purchase their first home. Saving for a home deposit can take up to 10 years or more.” Results from Finder’s Economic Sentiment Tracker, which gauges five key indicators – housing affordability, employment, wage growth, cost of living and household debt – were split this month, with housing affordability having the best gains, while wage growth sentiment dropped most dramatically. Mr Cooke says these figures are moving in the opposite direction than the RBA hoped, pointing to “more cuts on the horizon”. “The RBA is slowly running out of options,” he says.
As of October 4, none of the big four banks had passed on the latest interest rate cut in full, leading the prime minister to accuse them of “profiteering”. Official interest rates have dipped below one per cent for the first time in Australian history, hitting a record low of 0.75 per cent in the third cut since June. Westpac and ANZ joined the Commonwealth Bank and NAB on Wednesday to reveal their standard variable rates would drop between 13 and 15 basis points instead of the full 25 basis points. The banks argued they needed to keep some margins in a low interest rate environment, and protect customers who save deposits. “They’ll put their explanations out there and the public will judge them based on what they say but I’m not buying it,” PM Scott Morrison told Sky News last Wednesday. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg savaged the big banks for failing to pass on interest rate cuts in full to their customers. “Shop around, express your displeasure to your bank if they haven’t passed the rate cut on in full,” he told 3AW radio. “As the Reserve Bank itself has said, the cost of borrowing for the banks has come down, the cost of their funds will come down. And that is why it should be passed on.” Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese also gave the banks a spray. “The banks need to pass on the interest rate cut in full and the government needs to do something about it,” he told reporters in Queensland. “They can’t just sit back as spectators while this occurs.” Comparison site Mozo estimates the big four banks have clung onto an extra $4.7 billion since 2016 by not passing on the full cuts. The Reserve Bank is already preparing to cut rates further if the economy remains stagnant. AMP chief economist Shane Oliver predicts rates will drop again to 0.5 per cent on Melbourne Cup day, and down to 0.25 per cent early in 2020. Deloitte Access Economics partner Chris Richardson says there are downsides to cutting rates so low. “There is a risk that we’re spending down our recession insurance,” Mr Richardson told Sky News.

Your senses are immediately in overdrive when you first walk in the double door entryway and it becomes extremely obvious this is something extraordinarily special.

Villa Asmara is a genuine seven-star resort experience that you really need to have first hand. As good as they may be, the photos, description and video truly do not reflect what really is on show here. This is an outstanding, unique and simply stunning property.

GETTING IT SOLD If you are still on the market you might find this interesting SOLD AFTER ONE AD IN MY WEEKLY PREVIEW After two weeks of open homes with no attendance at all, I spoke to my sellers about “powering up” the campaign of their property with some print ads in MWP. The day the ad came out I had an email from a Coast buyer who hadn’t been searching the Nambour area on the internet, but had seen the printed advert. By 10.20am we had a conversation. At 12.15pm they had an inspection and the property was under contract by 2pm that day. Time and again I’ve found that adding a print campaign into the marketing mix is key to finding the best buyers. Thanks MWP!
Jason Stock RE/MAX Property Sales
SOLD BEFORE AUCTION FOR A COMPLEX RECORD Thanks to advertising in MWP I was able to attract a first homebuyer who was willing to pay a premium on an auction campaign at 16/1 Merchants Parade, Marcoola. The buyer wasn’t specifically looking in the area and if it wasn’t for the ad that ran in MWP we wouldn’t have attracted that buyer to the open home. The price level our online buyers were interested in paying for the property was around $15,000 less than our MWP buyer was willing to pay.
PRINT DELIVERED THE PREMIUM RESULT After a slow start to the campaign just relying on internet advertising and signage, I convinced my vendors that we had to do something different. They invested in just two quarter-page ads in My Weekly Preview and as a result we had a boost in numbers to the open house. A couple who had viewed the property online but discounted it, came and had a look after seeing the print ad. It turned out that the property was perfect for them. The result was a contract at the price the vendors wanted – happy vendors and happy buyers!

If your agent says you can save money by avoiding a print campaign, think again. That suggestion could end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars. Ask your MWP agent about our NO MONEY UP FRONT marketing options. Print works! Visit myweeklypreview.com.au to watch a short video on how to make more money when selling your home.

Chinese water torture is about to commence with onshore and north winds for the next few months. Arghhhhhh! Now what is a person to do, you ask. Well, my water-logged homo sapiens, fear not as I have a plan! A plan so clever you could put a tail on it and call it the Easter bunny. (That actually is a quote from Blackadder.) Nope, I got nothing. Best head to Indo for end-of-season joy as a few clever locals are doing as we speak. Or grab a Rubik’s cube and a few cheeky beers. Although, that does have the potential to make it worse. The third option is to pray!
