What a way to start the new year! We are just halfway through January and the pandemic has got us again, this time with a variant called Omicron sweeping through the community. This time last year, there wasn’t even such a word! But there you go, if there is anything we have learned over the last couple of years, it’s to expect the unexpected. Nevertheless, in times of momentous change, it’s comforting to fall back upon the things we know. In my case, this includes having the opportunity to stand in for editor Candice Holznagel while she’s on leave. As editor, it’s my job to go through all of the stories, columns and commentary and in doing so, I get a bird’s eye view of the Coast. No doubt, it’s the same for you as it is for me – reading the profiles, events, council news and varied commercial features

provides a connection to and understanding of the place we call home. These days, wellbeing experts agree having a sense of place enriches the quality of our life. I trust My Weekly Preview contributes to this, especially during the rollercoaster ride we are presently swinging through. This week, the cover story takes a look at New Year’s resolutions. My first thought was that, under the circumstances, we need to go easy on ourselves. But we humans are a varied bunch and at least one report shows that, when it comes to our desires, nothing much changes. Regardless of the pandemic, collectively, year after year, in terms of health, finances, career and family, we’re all in the same boat striving for the same things.

Fair dinkum Ausslie slang has a long and rich history and it hits its stride in the summer months. WORDS: Howard Manns, Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, Monash University & Kate Burridge, Professor of Linguistics, Monash University.


ummer loving happens so fast. One day, you’re sipping quarantinis in locky d. The next, you’re hosting mates for barbies. When we grab that snag, swag or esky, we’re doing more than celebrating summer. We’re celebrating it in Australian ways, and with Australian words. We don’t always agree on those words. Queenslanders have their togs and Victorians their bathers. And we don’t always agree with each other. The surfies hate the clubbies, and the bushwalkers bristle at hikers. But when summer hits, many Aussies share a love of the outdoors. So, slip, slop, slap, and don your akubra, cabbage-tree hat or Cunnamulla Cartwheel (our sunburnt history is replete with evolving hat styles). Let’s celebrate Australian summer slang. The great Aussie picnic: sangers, splayds and fly-swatting Australians deal with the summer in a very Australian way – irony, humour and idiom. Sure, an Australian picnic might be a pleasant affair, with sangers (sandwiches), flybog (jam) or splayds (a combined fork, spoon and knife, a proud

Australian slang has often come from the Aussie barbie Aussie invention). But in Australian English a picnic is also a word for ‘an awkward or disordered occasion’. To be fair, a picnic might start off pleasant and then turn awkward. Your host might turn the tall poppy and put on jam (‘a pretentious display’). Your guests might act strange, too. Australian English abounds in words and idioms for madness or folly. Lexicographer Bruce Moore reckons we Aussies invented the short of x idiom, and more than a few of these are picnic-related: • a sandwich short of a picnic • a few snags short of a barbie • a couple of tinnies short of a slab • a stubbie short of a six pack. Aussie beach life: wowsers, surfies and burkinis Summertime life revolves around the beach for many Australians. However, beach-going hasn’t always been easy-living. We talk about tree-changes and sea-changes these days without much fuss. However, just as the 19th-century bushgoers had to worry about bushrangers, the 19th century beach-goers had to worry about beach-rangers or larrikin pushes (‘gangs’). The latter could be recognised by their straw nan nan hats. The police feared the larrikins. The larrikins feared the sun. In the 20th century, beach-going was a

battle between conservative types, and those who sought to challenge them. Australian beaches had their fair share of wowsers in the early 20th century, and those who swam on censored beaches wore neck-to-knees or Spooners (named after a politician who opposed briefer costumes). Surf clubs emerged to guard those swimmers who sought to avoid wowserland by swimming at unusual times or in unusual places. However, as social mores became more permissive, these clubbies ended up as the more conservative forces on the beaches. Clubbies faced off with the surfie subcultures from the 1960s. Clubbies scoffed at the surfers, whom they viewed as gypsies, drifters and bums. Surfies scoffed at almost everyone, and developed a rich vocab for the inexperienced surfer. Grommet or grommie was an Australian take on the US gremlin or gremmie. It is hard to talk about Aussie beach slang without giving a nod to the 1979 book Puberty Blues. Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey drew heavily on – and perhaps introduced many Aussies to – words like moll, spunk and rack off. A recent survey shows variations of spunk (for example, spunky and spunkrat) as still the most common way Aussies say ‘attractive’.

Lette and Carey’s book also introduces readers to distinctive Australian swimwear. They write at one point, “The ultimate disgrace for a surfie was to be seen in his scungies,”, which is fair enough. Scungiesalso known as speedos or budgie smugglers – is likely related to Australian scungy (‘disagreeable, sordid’). Swags, billies and bush Of course, summertime isn’t just about going to the beach. Many Aussies head to the bush. We might – armed with our swags and billies – take the word bushwalking and bushwalker as givens in Australia. However, bushwalking and bushwalker only entered the Australian lexicon in the 1920s – and not without some controversy. The first controversy came in the form of people claiming to have invented the term. A Sydney walker by the name of Myles Dunphy was convinced he must have invented bushwalker. In 1923, Dunphy compiled a list of 83 possible names for his walking club – bush walk was on that list. We say poor Dunphy – bush walk in fact appears as far back as 1846. The second controversy came in asserting what Australians certainly weren’t doing in the bush: hiking. Some rejected the use of the word hike, such as this writer in the West Australian newspaper in 1932: “We deplore the use of bad American slang to describe what is eminently English and good”. It was around this time that Australians started voicing their irrits (‘feelings of extreme irritation’) at any apparent American incursion into the lingo (even though many had already snuck in undetected — like bush!). So [waves away flies], with this, we give you a great Aussie salute and [waves away flies again] wish you a good summer. Source: The Conversation

Consuming spices has been found to help cut down on how much fat you take in. A study by researchers at Pennsylvania State University in the US concluded that adding significant amounts of turmeric, black pepper or cinnamon to a fatty meal impedes the amount of triglyceride (bad fats that increases heart disease risk) taken into the blood by as much as 30 per cent.

The pioneers of hot-air balloon travel were not brave people but a rooster, sheep and a duck that were sent up in the innovative contraption invented by brothers Joseph-Michel and Jacques-Étienne Montgolfier at the end of the 1700s. The animals were placed in a cage suspended beneath the balloon and after eight minutes ended up landing about three kilometres from where they took off, all alive and well.

Easy does it for this year It’s human nature to make resolutions at the start of a new year, but after two years of living with a global pandemic and the uncertainty it has brought, the beginning of 2022 is really a time to go easy on yourself. WORDS: Gail Forrer.


ew Year is a time when we set ourselves a list of wonderful, often delusional, reach-forthe stars goals. It’s a sort of love/hate, determined-to-achieve, ready-for-failure, traditional thing that encourages us on an annual basis to wipe the slate clean, write up a new agenda and once again reaffirm our desire to do everything possible to live our best lives. In 2022, although we’re feeling battered from nearly two years of pandemic living, the indomitable human spirit still rises and demands us to lean in and step up. Yet, under the present trying circumstances, it’s a better time to go easy on ourselves and replace the usual list of hard-edged resolutions (such as losing weight, exercising more, saving money) with some gently life-enhancing suggestions. Below is a list I have gathered from a host of thoughtful, optimistic and very funny people to satisfy our innate urge to make uplifting resolutions at this time of year. In an essay for The New Yorker magazine, Colin Nissan writes about that old chestnut, weight loss. This man, who obviously has some experience on the topic, recommends a small start, one that you can’t miss. “Start with your fingers,”

12 My Weekly Preview | January 13, 2022

he advises. Personally, I understand where this fellow is coming from. Then he follows up with more specific directions: “When those aren’t obese anymore, move on to your arms and legs, then to your torso, and finally to those crazy chipmunk cheeks of yours.” Another, just as joyful, but depending on your viewpoint more practical, proposal comes from Trent Dalton. Mr Dalton is Australia’s best-selling author of Boy Swallows Universe, All Our Shimmering Skies and Love Stories. At the launch of Love Stories, the father of two daughters told the audience about the celebration of his family’s called MOPH. MOPH stands for moments of pure happiness. To explain how a MOPH occurs, he described a late afternoon when his 12-year-old daughter looked across the water at a beautiful sunset and called out “MOPH”. This young girl’s MOPH call alerted her whole family to the beauty of nature and with a corresponding “MOPH” yelp they had all chimed in, shared and claimed the moment as special. Mr Dalton says the MOPH ritual includes the proviso that all surrounding family members must stop, note and join in the moment.

I felt an MOPH when I heard this, because it was a simple, mindful and funny way to note the magic in front of our eyes – and it costs nothing. Oprah Winfrey often deals with the hard stuff, but this year she simply says just asking the right questions of yourself can build a better you. “Ask the right questions and the answers always reveal themselves,” she

“Be kind and gentle with yourself. Get enough rest, regular exercise and eat a healthy diet. Listen to your body” advises. “We can’t become what we need to be by remaining what we are.” To understand the things to move on from and the things to work towards, she recommends asking these questions: “What do I really want to do all day? How do I want to be remembered? What has kept me going all these years? Have I

made peace with my past? Do I say yes enough? What do I really want to do all day? How do I want to be remembered? What am I afraid of? Does the quality of my life currently reflect my needs and my values? Am I waiting for my real life to begin? Do I feel at home? What is the most important thing in life?” Medical doctor, self-help guru and author Deepak Chopra also goes slowly, recommending: “Be kind and gentle with yourself. Get enough rest, regular exercise and eat a healthy diet. Listen to your body and try to avoid things that cause you discomfort. Now you’ve released your unhealthy habits, you have space to introduce some good ones. If you can’t think of any, take this advice from Lord Buddha, ‘Life is very short, so break your silly ego, forgive quickly, believe slowly, love truly, laugh loudly and never avoid anything that makes you smile.’” But be careful what you wish for: “This could be the year you finally commit to pursuing a job you’re enthusiastic about. A resolution that’s both thrilling and terrifying. Thrilling because you actually might start doing what you love. And terrifying because you love poisonous frogs.” This sage advice issues forth from author Colin Nissan.

A history of New Year’s resolutions

What do Australians want? Australians are an irrepressible lot – despite the pandemic, this month’s national survey by reveals 72 per cent of Australians – equivalent to almost 14 million people – have set a New Year’s resolution. However, one million more people are not making a New Year’s resolution compared with the same time last year. Here’s the list of what we aim for: • Eat healthier • Lose weight • Sleep more

• Be more sustainable • Work less/have a better work-life balance • Travel overseas • Renovate my home • Find love • Take more risks • Change my job • Volunteer • Quit smoking • Start meditating • Move interstate /overseas • Quit vaping • Quit drinking • Quit gambling

If you have wondered where the notion of New Year’s resolutions started, you have the check the records around 2000BC. That’s when the Babylonians organised a 12-day festival called Akitu to celebrate the start of the farming season to plant crops, crown their king and promise to pay off debt. It is said that one common resolution was the returning of borrowed farm equipment.

Later on, the timing eventually shifted with the Julian calendar in 46BC, which declared January 1 as the start of the new year. Interesting to note that January was named for the two-faced Roman god Janus, who looks forward for new beginnings as well as backward for reflection and resolution. The Romans would offer sacrifices to Janus and make promises of good behaviour for the year ahead.

Even if you don’t keep resolutions, there are good reasons to make them anyway. The chief one is because just having a positive intention is good for the soul. To make that intention, you have to look in the mirror and be honest with yourself about what you would like to change, how you could go about it and how you will stick to it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

After the success of the ban on a variety of single-use plastic items in September last year, Queenslanders are now being asked to have their say on what single-use plastics should be banned next. Environment Minister Meaghan Scanlon says consultation is now open to gauge how Queenslanders feel about the proposal to expand the ban to cover more single-use plastic: “We are now very keen to hear from the community about what single-use plastic items we should target next.” She says items being considered include coffee cups and lids, plastic drinking cups, dome lids like those used on milkshakes, plastic wrapping on magazines or newspapers, fruit and vegetable produce bags, expanded polystyrene meat trays, balloon sticks and closures and bread bag tags. Locals can have their say until January 28. Visit and search ‘Single-use plastic items ban’.



$86 MILLION As part of the state government’s commitment to increasing firefighter numbers by 357 over five years, 97 more professional firefighters will join the ranks of the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) across Queensland this financial year, including at Beerwah and Coolum. Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, Mark Ryan says more than $86 million will be allocated between now and 2025 to grow the total number of frontline FRS professional firefighters by more than 15 per cent based on current numbers. “This financial year’s growth will see resources directed to enhanced service delivery at Charters Towers, Beerwah, and Yarrabilba. Extra firefighters will also be allocated to Brisbane, south eastern and far northern regions as well as five-day stations, such as Coolum.” Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Greg Leach is welcoming the growth. “Formerly an auxiliary only station, Beerwah will now be staffed for five days with continued support of auxiliary firefighters,” he says.



The new Maroochydore city centre will soon be home to 350 car and motorcycle spaces with approval granted to construct a multi-deck car park. The car park, to be located on Lightning Lane, adjacent to Foundation Place, will feature 294 car spaces, including accessible parking and electric vehicle charging spaces, 56 motorcycle and 28 bicycle spaces as well as end-of-trip facilities, such as showers, toilets, PWD facilities, lockers, and a drying cupboard. The building will incorporate sustainability principles including connection to Australia’s first, high technology underground automated waste collection system. The construction contract will be awarded in early 2022 with completion by the first quarter of 2023.

Peregian Beach artist Petalia Humphreys has been commissioned as part of the ‘Yourcity, Yourstory’ creative program at the MET within the Maroochydore City Centre. Ms Humphreys’ installation includes an eight-metre gallery wall and a three-dimensional sculpture in three sections. “My practice explores what might be considered three-dimensional paintings – reductive abstract paintings that reveal an architectural concern for geometry and location. I like to encourage an interactive approach, inviting the audience to engage in playful ways, considering ways of looking at, perceiving and viewing the work.” Her work will be on display with the Maroochydore CBD until early 2022.

COMMUNITY VIEWS TO SHAPE NEW TRANSPORT LINK Community input is set to shape a vital transport link on the southern end of the Sunshine Coast. The Sunshine Coast Council has received a wide range of feedback on the concept design for the Omrah Avenue to Nicklin Way Upgrade, which will now be carefully analysed. Division two councillor Terry Landsberg is thanking the many residents, businesses and community groups that provided feedback on the Caloundra Transport Corridor Upgrade (CTCU) concept design. “The project will address significant congestion at the nearby intersection of Nicklin Way, Pelican Waters Boulevard and Caloundra Road, providing motorists, cyclists and pedestrians with an alternative access route to everything that Caloundra

has to offer,” Cr Landsberg says. “The feedback will directly inform the project’s next stage, detailed design, which will take place in 2022.” The council, in partnership with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) offered community feedback on the 1.6-kilomtre upgrade, which will connect the CBD and Omrah Avenue to Nicklin Way, last year. “Some of the commonly asked questions were around Ben Bennett Bushland Park, and I want to assure the community that council is working with TMR to minimise the project’s footprint on the park, wherever possible,” Cr Landsberg says.

Screen dream Former Powderfinger drummer and ABC radio journalist Jon Coghill is pursuing a new passion, while helping to nurture the Sunshine Coast’s burgeoning TV and film industry. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


Dan Munday and Jon Coghill

s a child, Jon Coghill wanted to grow up to be either Michael Jackson or Luke Skywalker. He then fell in love with drumming when he heard INXS’s What You Need in the ’80s and went on to join one of the most successful Australian bands of all time. The stratospheric success Powderfinger experienced could have been a hard act to follow, but Mr Coghill managed to switch from rock star to journalist when the band came to an end in 2010, pursuing a career as an ABC radio presenter. Now, he’s getting creative again as a screenwriter. When we chat, he has just finished watching Game of Thrones for a second time and is watching The Sopranos all over again. But when he watches, it’s not just for enjoyment. He’s analysing the characterisation, dialogue and settings; seeing what makes them so brilliant and what he can learn from two of the greatest TV shows ever made. The Peregian father of three has been studying screenwriting online while becoming a key player in a push to establish a film and TV industry on the Sunshine Coast

and has brought former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd on board as a major supporter. “When I was at the ABC, working for a radio station and having deadlines within the next 10 minutes gave me a lot of confidence in writing,” he says. “I had to pump out stuff really quickly, which is completely different to screenwriting. You’ve got to plan it, write it then edit it, edit it, edit it. “I’ve written a few films and have TV show ideas and am going to try and get them happening.” Mr Coghill’s favourite genre is crime comedy and he’s written a script set on the Coast, as well as a comedy action road movie he says is “slightly autobiographical”. “I like it when characters are flawed,” he says. “They have to get through life and are following their obsessions and we’re rooting for them, but their flaws keep on disabling them. I love that idea that we’ve all got these obsessions within ourselves.” While he’s been busy connecting with producers and

funding bodies to have his work brought to life on the big or small screen, Mr Coghill has also been helping organise the the Sunny Coast Showdown, a new annual screen industry competition with prizes of $5000 to help fund and support local projects. Seven winners were announced in October and their projects will be presented at a gala presentation event on April 2. Mr Coghill joined the Sunshine Coast Screen Collective – a group of local industry professionals who believe the Coast is perfectly suited for the screen industry – three years ago. With his mate and fellow former Nambour State High School student Daniel Munday – a producer for Survivor – and members of the Screen Collective, they are bringing the competition to life and it is set to become a regular feature on the Sunny Coast calendar of cultural events. “We recognised there’s not much of a film and TV industry here and we came up with the idea of a competition that would nurture ideas,” Mr Coghill says. “We’re going to show seven locally made projects – five short films and two reality TV shows. We’re trying to celebrate what we can do and what’s on the Sunshine Coast. “The night is about entertaining people – red carpets, comedians, music, great food, wine and beer and a lot of people pitching in to show what they can do on a tiny bit of money. We only spent five grand on each project, whereas they spent $14 million on a Game of Thrones episode. Imagine what we could do if we brought big money here. We could do some serious stuff.”

The Sunny Coast Showdown Fancy Do will be held at Venue 114 on Saturday, April 2. For more information and tickets, visit

Caring for kids A childcare expert, Pam Maclean designs, builds and runs industryleading centres for local children and their families. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.


am Maclean is a force to be reckoned with in the childcare industry and after 40 years in the business, she still brings as much passion and joy to her work each day as she did when she first began. Originally from Brisbane, Mrs Maclean started working in childcare when you didn’t need the qualifications you need now. She loved it so much, she gained an Early Childhood Diploma, a Bachelor of Teaching and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership, becoming an award-winning director and designer of early childhood centres and a sought-after speaker and trainer for centre teams across Australia. Mrs Maclean is in her element around children and finds the environment

energising and stimulating. She is also on the Queensland committee for the Australian Childcare Alliance, working to advocate for the needs of young children. “I had a break away during COVID and worked from home and I missed it so much,” she says. “I missed the social aspect – the families, the children, the team, being amongst the community with all our little people. It’s who you are. If you’re doing something you love, it doesn’t feel like work. The thing for me is children are not there to be moulded; they are potential to be unfolded. We’re there to support and guide them as they become the best they can be.” Mrs Maclean has worked in every aspect of childcare, including becoming an expert in the areas of childcare centre design, outdoor play space design and

team training. When her two children were young, her husband was transferred to Bundaberg for work and that’s where she began to make strides in her new career. “We went up there with a three-year old and a 10-month-old and I got into it from there,” she says. “I started thinking, if I’ve got these little people, I should know more about what I’m doing. I studied as a parent wanting to understand more and I’ve been hooked ever since.” In Bundaberg, she went on to design, build and operate Piper Central, the first childcare centre to be named Queensland Small Business of the Year (2006). It was also named the Prime Minister’s Top Three Small Businesses. Ten years ago, her family relocated to the Sunshine Coast and she founded the popular Big Day Out Care & Education Centres in Peregian, which she also designed and built from the ground up. “I have always looked at every question and decision-making process through the filter of what’s right for the child, what’s right for the families and what’s right for the team,” she says. “We look for staff who genuinely want to be with children.” “One example of what we do is we have a mother working in every room. I want someone there who understands the heart-wrench of leaving the child. Little

things like that make a huge difference.” Having sold the Peregian centres, Mrs Maclean is bringing her wealth of experience and knowledge to two new Maroochydore childcare centres. Out & About Care & Education in Dalton Drive, Maroochydore is open and a second centre will open in Newspaper Place in February. Plans to open a third Out & About centre in the Mooloolah Valley are also underway. “We like every day to be an adventure where we all learn something new,” she says. “It’s not my goal to own lots and lots of centres. I’d like to focus on these three. “There’s a whole raft of studies from around the world that show children who have experienced early childhood education head off to school with a better knowledge base. “There’s research that says if children haven’t been in some kind of kindy or day care before they begin Prep, they spend the first three to six months trying to learn how to be in a group, and perhaps not being able to learn all they could. “We help train their brains to take on new information while they are playing, singing and dancing,” she says. “It’s a play-based learning environment and gives them the confidence to put their hand up and have a go, while also learning how much fun they can have with their friends while they’re learning.”

news PHYSIO RETIRES AFTER STELLAR CAREER After treating sports stars, rock stars and a prime minister, Greg Craig is taking a step back. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


former Wallabies physiotherapist who calls the Sunshine Coast home has spent generations keeping elite athletes in the sport they love. Greg Craig has helped make sporting dreams come true, even through injury, for the likes of rugby union greats Tim Horan and George Gregan. He has even treated musical greats like Jimmy Barnes and former Prime Minister John Howard. As he steps down after a wonderful career, Mr Craig has reflected on his time in the job. He is proud to have worked with a host of top teams during their golden eras and to have been the Sunshine Coast Lightning netball team’s

physiotherapist since 2016. Mr Craig is a specialist sports physiotherapist and expert in knee rehabilitation. He graduated from the University of NSW and the University of Sydney in 1977 and 1978, respectively. In 1982, he completed his postgraduate studies in sports physiotherapy. He was awarded as a titled Australian physiotherapy sports and exercise physiotherapist in 1999. In 2007, he moved from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast and founded The Knee Joint Sports Physiotherapy at Bokarina in November 2008. Now, after almost 40 years, the popular physio is retiring, but he has fond memories of his time in the role.

During his career, he worked with the Wallabies for 16 years, from 1985 to 2001, and travelled to four World Cups. Mr Craig says he loved being able to help athletes back on to the field. “When you tour with teams, your job is to keep the players that are good enough to play in that team on the field,” he says. “That is always rewarding and I’ve been lucky enough to be in the golden era of a few teams and celebrating with their successes. “Winning two World Cups with (The Wallabies) was very rewarding. It’s very much a team effort. Mr Craig was also the Australian Barbarians rugby team physiotherapist from 1988 to1996. “Athletes are highly-motivated people so in treating them you can push them a little bit harder and get them back to where they want to be.” Mr Craig has also enjoyed his role with Sunshine Coast Grammar First XV rugby team, since 2008. Since then, he has also helped countless Sunshine Coast residents through his clinic in Bokarina. Mr Craig retired from clinical physiotherapy to the public on December 31, but will stay on working with the Sunshine Coast Lightning. “I will remain contracted to the Lightning for at least 2022. It’s still 0.6 of a full-time job,” he says. “They are magnificent athletes, the (Lightning) girls. They are impressive. “I also plan to enjoy myself, go for walks, cycles and kayaks – it just opens that up a bit more.” Mr Craig says he is grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such a high calibre of sporting teams, organisations and patients through his clinic.

The Sunshine Coast Classic Car Christmas Pageant on December 17 was a tooting success, raising money for an important cause. More than 40 classic cars travelled from Buderim to Noosa, raising more than $10,000 for Bloomhill Cancer Care. As part of the pageant, participants were given the opportunity to auction off for a seat in a car, which included a 1960s Bentley belonging to event organisers Jaz and Rick Hoy. “We had people buying tickets as Christmas presents for family and staff, car enthusiast friends – it was really great,” Bloomhill Cancer Care chair Michael Wise says. “The funds raised will go a long way to helping children and young people touched by cancer receive support at Bloomhill.” Mr and Mrs Hoy plan to make the event an annual tradition.

It began with a vision to get Sunshine Coast kids back to nature. Now, Wildlings Forest School is teaching outdoor education around the world with one simple goal: to let kids be kids. The Burnside-based business is being showcased as one of the region’s Local Business Champions as part of a series that highlights the success and capability of the local business community. From raft building and archery to wood carving and bush cubby houses, the forest school offers a dose of the outdoors, enriching the lives of thousands of children, big and small. Wildlings Forest School co-founders Vicci Oliver and Nicki Farrell say the success since beginning in 2017 comes down to authenticity. “We’re outdoor educators by trade so when we first started, running a business was completely foreign to us,” Ms Oliver says. “Those first two years were a crash course in a world we knew nothing about. “One of the best business insights we’ve gained along the way is to be authentic. When we tell our story, we really connect with our audience and then they spread our message for us.” Sunshine Coast Council Economic Development portfolio councillor Terry Landsberg says the Wildlings Forest School is another great example of small businesses that have big things for the region and beyond. “Council recognises how important small businesses

Wildlings Forest School co-founders Nicki Farrell and Vicci Oliver are to our local economy, which is why we developed the Local Business Champions series,” Cr Landsberg says. “I commend the Forest School for its success and for showcasing the Sunshine Coast’s natural surrounds and enriching our local kids with their wonderful nature-based programs.” Ms Oliver says being a Local Business Champion is a validation of the hard work during the past four years. “It’s a new industry that often isn’t recognised in education or outdoor education and yet, here we are thriving,” she says. “And instead of just being the two of us, we’re now employing between 15 and 30 people across southeast Queensland.”

Seven lawyers have been acknowledged for providing Sunshine Coast residents with free legal support. Scott Taylor, John Gallagher, Michael Robinson, Hazrabee Mustafa, Samantha Bolton, Russell Rose and Peter Boyce were recognised for 12 years of dedication to the Suncoast Community Legal Service. Established in 1984, SCLS has played a crucial role in supporting Sunshine Coasters with free legal advice, help, support and referral. The service held its 37th annual general meeting at Maroochydore recently, announcing big plans for 2022. “We are always looking towards the future to offer a better service for our community,” principal solicitor Julian Porter says. “This financial year, SCLS plans to deliver legal help to over 4000 people, over 3000 individual legal advices, over 1500 legal information services and 20-plus community legal education sessions. Themes for these sessions include domestic violence, property, youth and elder abuse.” Mr Porter says the service will provide more than 2000 legal referrals, 3500 hours of tenancy-specific legal assistance to more than 500 families and individuals, specific support and assistance to victims and families of domestic violence and elder abuse, representation for more than 20 matters at Family Court and innovative community events including Law at the Beach.

Over the past few weeks our region has experienced heavy rainfall, with the forecast predicting a very wet summer season and with more significant rainfall anticipated over the coming weeks and months. As we all know, prolonged wet weather makes for a lot of mowing. Right now, our teams are out and about caring for our 1069 hectares of parklands and reserves across the Sunshine Coast region – that’s equivalent to 1998 football fields. Even when the wet weather clears, our regular schedule may need to change to allow green spaces to dry out – otherwise we can risk significant damage to our parks and grounds. I appreciate your patience as we resume services back to normal once conditions improve.

Help council create a new planning scheme for our region A planning scheme sets out council’s plan for managing growth and change in our region. It applies to land that you own or rent and affects what you can do with your land and what your neighbour can do with theirs. Council is in the early stages of preparing a new planning scheme and everyone will soon have the opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed planning directions for our region.

An artist’s impression of the main street rejuvenation for Eudlo

FINAL DESIGN TO BRING A COOL CHANGE TO EUDLO STREET The main street of a Sunshine Coast hinterland town is set for a ‘cool and leafy’ revamp. Rosebed Street in Eudlo will boast more green space, after Sunshine Coast Council finalised the new design. Last year the council asked the community to share what they loved and what could be improved to enhance the street, so a draft streetscape concept plan could be developed. Sunshine Coast division five councillor Winston Johnston says further feedback was sought on the final concept plan in July. “Thank you to all the locals, visitors and businesses who worked with our

Placemaking and Design team, attended a series of community events and completed the online surveys, so we can create a cool, shady and green space we can all enjoy,” Cr Johnston says. “The final concept plan reflects the community’s values and vision for safer streets both for pedestrians and road users, and provides an attractive and appealing walkable environment which is cool and leafy. “Three new garden beds will be installed along the main street to beautify and green the urban environment. Construction began on January 10 and is expected to take two weeks, weather and site conditions dependant.

Club gives children a head start

Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien with Philip Worthy of Nambour Meals on Wheels

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR NAMBOUR MEALS ON WHEELS A Nambour charity is issuing an impassioned plea for additional volunteers to ensure the Sunshine Coast’s most vulnerable are supported. Nambour Meals on Wheels provides more than 35,000 meals locally each year and is looking to fill several volunteer roles, which include activities such as kitchen support, odd jobs and delivering meals to those in need. “We have an incredibly dynamic and welcoming workforce at Nambour Meals on Wheels who are always eager to support new volunteers,” Nambour Meals on Wheels secretary Phillip Worthy says. “Volunteering is not only a great way to give back to the community but a fantastic way to meet new people, make new friends and be productive. “Whether it’s once a week, once a

fortnight or once a month, every little bit counts.” Federal Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien has answered the call by not only volunteering his time, but also providing the organisation with a $5000 federal government grant to directly support the volunteer workforce. “I commend the team at Nambour Meals on Wheels who work throughout the year caring for and supporting our community’s most vulnerable,” Mr O’Brien says. Nambour Meals on Wheels not only provides meals to people with a variety of support needs, but also undertakes daily welfare checks to monitor the wellbeing of clients, many of whom may not see anyone else during the day.

Mental health walk generates thousands for charity Mooloolaba Rotary Club recently presented a cheque for $12,475 to Australian Rotary Health. The money was raised at last year’s Lift the Lid walk, where more than 250 supporters participated. “In the last Rotary year over $2.2 million was applied to research and scholarships into mental health issues,” Australia Rotary Health’s board member Roger Crawfoot says. The Lift the Lid walk for mental health is the brainchild of Mooloolaba Rotarian Vicki Stewart and the annual walk has since been adopted by 15 other Rotary Club’s nationally with the aim of holding 30 walks in 2022.

Jane Stephens says it’s unAustralian to go to the beach and forget your manners. Here are her top beach etiquette tips.

Ashley Robinson says while we complain about problems accessing COVID tests, think about those on the frontline doing it tough.


he giant swell birthed by Cyclone Seth may have abated, but let’s try not to let our manners go out with the tide. Despite patchy weather, our beaches are bumper-to-bumper and people seem to have forgotten the Australian way – showing courtesy to those who share our great sandy spaces. Perhaps, along with a reminder of what the flags mean and why wearing sunscreen is imperative, a rundown of beach etiquette should be broadly distributed. Here is my two-cents’ worth on a topic that should be a social discussion for this summer: Towels – Stepping away from people before shaking out your towel is good manners. But beachgoers think nothing of shaking their towel precisely where they stand. Being sprayed with grit is rude. Children – A beach is not a giant creche, but parents so often hit the sand and switch off. Maybe they figure that with a zillion people around, including life savers and guards, someone else is sure to see a drowning, lost or annoying child and save their life, help them find their parents or discipline them. In this instance at least,

some parents have embraced the notion that it takes a village to raise a child. But the rest of the village is relaxing too. Smokers – For about 15 years, smoking has been banned between the flags from the waterline to the road. But that has not stopped puffers from scooting away and dropping their butts for someone else to pick up. It is staggeringly common. Any little beach walk away from the red-andyellow zone will render evidence. The stinky habit leaves behind equally horrible litter. Privacy – Remember there are no walls on beaches, so every conversation can be overheard. It’s advisable to go easy on the colourful lingo and domestic rumpus. And remember that every action can be seen, so save the private-place scratching for a time that is, well, more private. Space – When a beach neighbour goes in for a dip, this is not the signal to stomp on, walk over or otherwise mess up their towel or Cool Cabana. To lay out a towel is to stake a claim: the little bit of sand it lies on is mine until I head for home. With a little more consideration of others, our beaches could really be a summertime wonderland. And the improvement costs nothing but thought.

Jane Stephens is a USC journalism lecturer, media commentator and writer.


ast week, as I drove past the COVID testing hub at Kawana every day on my way to work and saw the 200 to 300 cars line up, all I could think about was that will be me one of these days; not a pleasant thought. I also thought about the daily briefings from our leaders about getting tested if you have any symptoms, if it’s too busy get a rapid test and go and get your booster shot now. At the time of writing, none of those three suggestions was doable. Well, maybe the test if we had six hours to spare and they didn’t run out of kits. Our leaders are making some noises about rectifying all of the above, which will be fantastic if it actually happens and will at least restore some faith in our powers that be. So while I was pondering this as I drove to work, I actually had an epiphany: what about the poor workers at the test centres, the labs, and all our health workers, the police that are at the frontline of this massive cluster bucket of swill? Sure, I am worried about my health,

my family and friends, workmates and the business but hello? What about all the people trying to do what these politicians are saying on a daily basis. The virus changes course rapidly and so does the advice coming through our media sources from the folks that are supposed to be guiding us through this, which is of course difficult, but not as difficult as the frontline. It’s a bit like going to war; it’s rare that the strategists are on the frontline. Mostly they are in a bunker somewhere moving troops and supplies from a safe distance. Of course, some leaders lead from the front, like WWII General George Patton who had hundreds of quotble quotes. I think two fit the situation we are in now: “No good decision was ever made in a swivel chair”. It probably sums up a few things over the last two years? But even more fitting: “Human beings are all made of flesh and blood and a miracle fibre called courage.” Those workers on the frontline of this debacle certainly have that fibre and I guess it’s up to the rest of us to respect that and hope we can find it as well.

Sami Muirhead says Pantone's 2022 Colour of the Year may have a fancy name, but at the end of the day it’s just plain purple.

Aaron Purchase reports on an enormous amount of beach rescues over summer and urges people to take care in the water.


he cynic in me delights in the release of the Colour of the Year by Pantone (the global authority on colour) every 12 months. If you are feeling a little down with too much COVID on the Coast and not enough RATS (hello new year and new acronym), then hang around because this new colour will have you in stitches. Pantone bigwigs clearly continue to be drunk in their meetings or plain high on life. They have invented this year's shade which is a ‘happy’ periwinkle blue. It is called Very Peri. No, not the chicken chain with the spicey sauce. This shade is the “happiest and warmest of all the blue hues, blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red to deliver an empowering mix of newness with a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit,” said the company in its announcement. What the? I can only assume after the announcement they returned to the pub to continue drinking shots and laughing at how they hoodwink the world each year with their release of a ridiculous colour that is taken as gospel by creatives and huge companies around the world.

Come on, people! It’s purple! What is wrong with calling it purple? Very Peri? No! It is pretty much the same shade as that Grimace creature at McDonald's that is apparently a bruise. It is as purple as Count Von Count from Sesame Street, the Phantom’s unforgiving outfit, Skeletor from He-Man, Share Bear (the purple Care Bear), Tinky Winky the Teletubby, or an eggplant. It is the shade of a hickey, a passionfruit, purple kale or a parade of Freemantle Docker fans or a pack of Melbourne Storm players. Adding to my fascination to this colour calamity is the fact I really dislike the colour purple. It is just an ugly colour. What is wrong with beige or white or pale green as lovely shades? Of course, my young sons and husband love an American football team called the Sacramento Kings. My husband has been a big fan for 30 years. Guess what their team colour is for their games? Yep. Purple! My men all take great joy in teasing me by wearing their ugly purple T-shirts every chance they get. I cannot wait to turn their shirts into car washingrags one day. Then we will see who is in the middle of a purple patch.

e have seen a staggering number of rescues over the holiday season. Despite the wild conditions due to ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth and beaches being closed, there were countless examples of people going into the water and getting into difficulty. Since Christmas Eve we’ve seen 213 rescues, which has pushed lifeguards and lifesavers to the limit. We really can’t stress enough how dangerous the conditions can be, hence why beaches are closed. “She’ll be right won’t save your life” is the message for the summer and once again we’d urge people to think about the risks of their actions. Swimming in dangerous conditions not only puts you at risk, but also our lifeguards and lifesavers who potentially have to come in and rescue you. About a quarter of the latest rescues were people surfing or body boarding. The conditions we’ve seen aren’t the time to be testing your capability. Our lifeguards and lifesavers have done a fantastic job preventing any tragedies. This was highlighted by them

conducting more than 19,500 preventative actions since Christmas Eve. In addition to this, they’ve also provided 1415 first aid treatments. We thank all of our team that have done a great job. With three weeks still remaining in the summer school holidays we expect things to stay busy, so please make our jobs as easy as possible by following the advice of those on patrol. The weather looks like it will be on the improve with showers Saturday, before hopefully some sunshine on Sunday. The swell has reduced but will still be around the one-metre mark from the east. Conditions will still be unstable due to the erosion of the dune and the existing sandbanks. It will take a few days for things to settle down and stabilise again. During this time there will be lots of water movement, particularly as the tides run out. Tides have returned to normal levels. Temperatures are forecast to reach 28 degrees and 29 degrees Celsius and the UV will be in the extreme range, so make sure you put on plenty of sunscreen if out in the sun. If you’re heading to the beach, only swim between the red and yellow flags!

How long and how much?

Is my business eligible?

The uncertainties of death

At the start of a family law property settlement matter the two most asked questions we get are, “how long will it take?” and “how much will this cost?”. It is impossible to know at the first appointment because there are too many factors which may affect time frames. One factor is that asset pools are increasingly complex and may contain trusts, companies, superannuation funds, cash, shares and real estate, all of which may need to be valued. After receiving legal advice, the parties will have a better understanding of their rights and obligations and whether the division they were considering remains acceptable and is just and equitable. Once an agreement is reached, the formal application will be filed with the Court and you will usually have your response within weeks. If you do not have an agreement but have identified and valued your assets and liabilities, voluntary mediation can be arranged immediately. Estimating costs varies for all the same reasons. Having an experienced and knowledgeable team to support you through your family law matter will mean your estimates as to time and cost are likely to be realistic, based on relevant and current experience of the processes and knowledge of resources available.

If you engage an Australian Apprentice between October 5, 2020 and March 31, 2022, how much is the subsidy? • Eligible employers and Group Training Organisations will receive a wage subsidy of up to 50 per cent of the Australian Apprentice’s gross wage paid. • Available to new or recommencing apprentice or trainee for a 12-month period from the date of commencement. Maximum of $7000 per quarter. • The subsidy is available to employers of any size, industry or geographic location. • After 12 months of this support, employers will be eligible to transition to the time-limited Completing Apprenticeship Commencements (CAC) wage subsidy for the second and third years of an apprenticeship. • Under the CAC, eligible employers will receive a 10 per cent wage subsidy in the second year of an eligible apprenticeship, up to a maximum of $1500 per quarter per apprentice, and a five per cent wage subsidy in the third year of their apprenticeship, to a maximum of $750 per quarter per apprentice. • Final claims need to be made by June 30, 2025.

This is the fifth in our series of articles of the uncertainties of death. Myth – a person without capacity is no longer able to update their affairs. Wrong ! It is not widely known that a court can make a Will for a person who has lost capacity. A ‘court-made’ Will might be required where: (a) a person has dementia and their current Will is no longer appropriate; or (b) they have no Will and their estate would pass to unintended beneficiaries. Before making any Will, the court must be satisfied: (a) the person applying is the appropriate person to do so; and (b) of the intentions of the incapacitated person. The court requires information including details of the size and nature of the person’s estate and a draft of the proposed Will. As the Order of the court must be made prior to the incapacitated person passing away, an application may need to be made urgently. A court-made Will can be very useful to ensure an incapacitated person’s estate planning is appropriate.

FRESH IS BEST With children due back at school in coming weeks, now is the time to start thinking about lunches that are not only nutritious, but appealing to your little ones. Stuck for ideas? Dress up your child’s lunch box with these helpful hints and snack ideas: • Mix it up – children will get bored eating the same thing every day. Think ahead and create a weekly food plan to ensure you are covering nutritional guidelines and providing interesting food • Fruit – fresh is best but packaged fruit is fine as a second option • Sandwiches – does your child like having a lunchtime sandwich? Change the fillings regularly to include things such as meat, fresh salad, dairy and healthy spreads. Also, try using different types of bread including multigrain, sourdough, chia-infused varieties, bread rolls and baguettes.

that ‘queens fix each others crowns’, creating a supportive atmosphere where your child can flourish and create lifelong friendships, as well as being encouraged to have a healthy body image and confidence. Tropicalia Latin Dance Studio has been the hub of Latin dance on the Sunshine Coast since 2018 and each year the staff create more and more opportunities for students, both adults and kids, to perform what they have been learning. Through their events, students see the whole process of learning a dance style and the hours of practising and putting their hard work on stage with an enthusiastic audience.


With the new school year just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about school fees, uniforms, laptops and extracurricular activities. We can already hear the requests: “I want to sign up to dance this year”, “I need a new computer”, “my shoes don’t fit anymore”. This can be a source of stress for families, as Australian back-to-school costs increase year on year and technology plays a larger role in school learning. So here are a few tips to make it easier to manage the upcoming expenses:

PLANNING AHEAD Make a list of things your kids will be needing in the next six months (such as sports equipment) and see if you can buy items earlier to take advantage of sales or online promotions.

UNIFORMS AND TEXTBOOKS Check out online exchanges for uniforms,

Kawana Waters State College

books and equipment like The Uniform Swap Shop, The Uniform Exchange and The Sustainable School Shop. Uniforms are often in perfectly good condition but just become obsolete as older kids transition into a senior uniform or grow out of them.

PAYMENT PLANS Smooth out your school fees with a payment plan like Edstart. Instead of forking out large upfront payments at the start of each term or semester, you can make smaller weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments to help take the pressure off the family budget. Edstart payment plans can be used for school fees as well as other education expenses like laptops and uniforms. Choose an option to suit your needs and you can cancel or adjust at any time with no fees or charges.

My education 2021 ATAR RESULTS



n this feature, we highlight a number of Sunshine Coast schools and students whose year 12 results reflect a heightened sense of dedication and commitment, as they have worked towards achieving outstanding educational results. In

particularly difficult times, these students and their teachers have successfully navigated their way through a list of unprecedent barriers to stand proudly among Queensland’s top students. Their results have been graded

according to The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). Across Australia, the ATAR is a standard measure of a student’s overall academic achievement in relation to that of other students. It is intended to assist tertiary institutions to select applicants into their courses. The ATAR is a percentile rank, not a mark. This rank indicates a student’s position relative to other students in their age group in any given year. It’s expressed as a number on a 2000-point scale from 99.95 down to 0.00 in steps of 0.05. An ATAR of 80.00 does not mean a student got 80%. It indicates that the student placed in the top 20% of students in Queensland in their Year 12 age group. Responsibility for calculating and issuing the ATAR has been assigned to the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) on behalf of Queensland tertiary institutions. QTAC administers the application and offer processes for tertiary institutions in Queensland (and a few institutions interstate) and has over four decades of experience in tertiary admissions. To be eligible for an ATAR, a student must: complete five General subjects (Units 3 and 4); or complete four General subjects (Units 3 and 4) plus one Applied subject (at Units 3 and 4) or a VET course at AQF Certificate III level or higher; and accumulate results within a five-year period. Students must also satisfactorily complete (i.e. achieve a minimum grade of C or higher) an English subject (one of English, English as an Additional Language, English and Literature Extension, Literature, or Essential English). Source: uploads/2020/06/ATAR_An_overview.pdf

TIPS FOR FIRST WEEKS OF UNIVERSITY STUDIES Eat properly and stay hydrated When you are running around from event to event, it is easy to forget to eat and stay hydrated. Most importantly, don’t forget to keep a bottle of water with you so you can keep hydrated throughout the day. You will always find places to refill your water bottle on campus. Get involved in some activities Orientation Week (O-Week) is great way to become involved in or get settled into university and there are lots of activities during the week, such as campus and city tours, bands and parties. Be sure to take advantage of these free activities, which will be helpful in getting to know your new environment and also to make new friends. Don’t be Afraid to Ask for Help Your lecturers and tutors all understand how scary it may be, because at one stage they were once university students as well. Never be afraid to ask for help if you need to know something or if you don’t understand something said in your classes. It is likely that someone else in the lecture room are hesitant to ask as well. And if you ever get lost or aren’t sure where to find something, just ask a fellow student where to go! After all, university is a place of learning. 5. Finding Bargain-Priced Textbooks There is probably a good chance that a textbook is lying around somewhere that someone has finished with and is willing to sell it at a lower price. Usually your lecturer or tutor will tell you where you can get cheaper textbooks in the first weeks of your semester. Your university library may also stock the textbook, so be sure to look around before heading to the bookstore.

Principal Stuart Meade says, “Our Flinders results are even more impressive when we reflect on the COVID chaos that our 2021 graduates have been through over the past two years. “Despite these challenges, our students have overwhelmingly remained focused and supportive of one another. Importantly, they have continued to participate in many of the opportunities we offer at Flinders beyond academics, whether music, sporting, creative arts or service projects.” Flinders Class of 2021 ATAR Results Snapshot: • Median ATAR 92.65 • One Flinders student, Claudia McPherson, achieved the highest possible ATAR of 99.95 (as one of only 32 students in Queensland) • Seven Flinders students achieved an ATAR of 99 or above, and another 21 with

Former Sunshine Coast Grammar student Eloise Lawrie received an ATAR score of 99.80

SCHOOL-LEAVERS CELEBRATE RESULTS The ATAR results are out, with students from Sunshine Coast Grammar School posting some impressive marks. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


s the world settles into a new year, hundreds of freshly graduated school-leavers will begin their first year in the ‘real world’, preparing to begin tertiary education or work. Eligible 2021 Year 12 students

across the region have now received an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for their senior studies, with some impressive results. Students are awarded a ranking from 99.95 points down to 30 in 0.05 increments. Eloise Lawrie from Sunshine Coast

Grammar School is being recognised as a top-performing student, finishing her schooling with a score of 99.80. The school’s graduating class of 2021 was among the top in the state with nine per cent of students scoring in the top one per cent with an ATAR of 99 or above, and 30 per cent achieving a ranking score of 95 or above. Sunshine Coast Grammar School principal Maria Woods is delighted with the results, which she says are some of the best in Queensland. “The results achieved are a reflection of the dedication and positive attitude students have displayed towards their studies,” Mrs Woods says. “We are incredibly proud of our Year 12 cohort and congratulate them on their outstanding achievements. “Our goal has been to encourage, challenge and nurture students so that they can pursue their dreams beyond school.” Mrs Woods says many of these young men and women have expressed interest in pursuing their passion in medicine, law, performing arts or finance. “The realisation of hard work and commitment has finally paid off for these students as the journey they once only dreamed of is now about to become a

reality,” she says. “Success comes in many forms and as a school it is our goal for every graduating Year 12 student to be working or studying towards a career that not only values their talents, but for which they also have a real passion and purpose.

“The realisation of hard work and commitment has finally paid off for these students” “We encourage each and every student to go confidently in the direction of their dreams, to work hard and to realise their full potential in the next phase of their unique journey. Congratulations to the class of 2021.” The ATAR system was first introduced to Queensland in 2020 to bring the state in line with the nationally used grading system. Before 2020, the Overall Position (OP) was the primary pathway for tertiary entrance for Queensland Year 12 school-leavers, who were awarded with a number from one (highest) to 25 (lowest).

1. Biophilic design Biophilic design encourages a closer connection to nature in our built environment. In 2022 we will see more people turning to natural timber finishes, stone and marble in kitchens and bathrooms and more use of handmade and artisan-made furniture and decor.


2. European influences Australians are being inspired by the grandeur and character of European aesthetics. There’s something comforting about incorporating age-old building techniques like rendering and vintage European decor like sculptures of female busts, European-inspired artwork and elaborate tiling. We love this fabulous armchair inspired by the Louis XV era. It has been reinvented and given an Indian twist with traditional Khadi fabric. It’s from Provincial Home Living.

ow that 2022 is here, there are a lot of conversations happening in the interior design world regarding upcoming trends, colours, textures and patterns. Pretty much all things that are going to make a splash in the interior design industry this year. Home interior design is constantly changing and evolving. It’s becoming more creative, fun to plan out, and easier for people of all skill sets to achieve with Pinterest at their fingertips! Our 2022 interior design predictions are that we are going to see a lot more in the way of modern yet environmentally conscious design. We anticipate a lot of chic, minimal styling with a shift from darker hues like mustard and olive to a more pastel colour palette and not to be cliche, but fifty shades of white sounds about right as we head into the new year. We’re also seeing a lot more metallic interior design elements, from furniture to home finish hardware and home decor.

Image and product from Domayne

METALLIC ACCENTS Whether you’re redesigning your current home or building a brand spanking new one, metallic accents are most likely on the agenda. It may be tapware, finishes, or lighting fixtures, there are about five thousand (that may be an exaggeration, but there’s a lot!) different metals to choose from. Keep in mind that if you’re in the

process of re-styling your home to keep up with the current interior design trends, you don’t have to gut your entire house to bring in metal elements. You can easily invite these accents into your home in the way of home decor or furniture. Think metal photo frames, dining chairs, or bar stools with metal legs or you could even swap out your kitchen utensils for metallic ones that are displayed on your benchtop.


With the latest designs in carpet, timber, laminate, luxury vinyl, tiles, rugs, plus window furnishings, we have the perfect decorating solution for every home and lifestyle.

You pride yourself on your well-rounded personality, but with Mercury and Venus both retrograde, it will be difficult to balance head and heart. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Talking things through with a friend is the healing balm they need.

Are you feeling restless? The full moon finds you dreaming of greener pastures and foreign adventures. You’re also longing for deeper connections within your local community, but retrograde Mercury and Venus stymie progress this week.





This week, retrograde Venus and Mercury frustrate plans. Monday night’s full moon shines a spotlight on lust and loot, so an intimate relationship could soar spectacularly or crash and burn. You also need to keep up-to-date with money matters.

The sun, Pluto and retrograde Venus are transiting through your sign, which amplifies your ambition. These planets also rev up your ruthless side, which can alienate you from others. Monday night’s full moon gives you a boost as you charm close friends.

Under the influence of Saturn and retrograde Mercury, motivation and energy levels will be low. On Monday night, the full moon stirs up your reckless side and you could surprise others with an unpredictable move that comes out of left field.

Do you have a dream that is taking forever to come true? Are you blaming everyone else for the hold-up? Take a good look at yourself. With Jupiter in Pisces and Mars charging through your reputation zone, there are no excuses.

WORD STEP Complete the list by changing one letter at a time to create a new word at each step. One possible answer shown below.




VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23) Virgos are the veritable worrywarts of the zodiac. And this week – with Mercury and Venus both – you could go into anxiety overdrive. Try to slow down and keep things in perspective. It’s also a good week to share your goals with family and friends.

SUNSHINE COAST IS THE STAR PERFORMER The Sunshine Coast’s property prices will continue to rise in 2022, predicts one property expert. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone.

46 My Weekly Preview | January 13, 2022

46.indd 1



he Coast’s residential property price growth continues to outperform Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and it’s likely to continue the upward trend. Property commentator Dr Nicola Powell, chief of research and economics at Domain, says “the extreme rate of price growth” on the Sunshine Coast will continue to deliver record prices in 2022. “We have seen, particularly for house prices, back-to-back strong rates of quarterly growth,” she says. “Over the March quarter we saw a nine per cent increase in house prices in three months alone, which is an extraordinary rate of growth. Then it continued with a five per cent growth over the June and September quarters.” She expects to see another robust result for the December quarter. “I would very surprised if we see a negative movement,” Dr Powell says. One rider is the expectation that the pace of growth may start to ease. It’s already happening on the Gold Coast where she says its rate of price growth is slowing after peaking at 20 per cent “year-on-year”. The Sunshine Coast’s pace of growth is

the highest seen since about 2003 after experiencing only a modest price growth for several years. “It hasn’t seen a double-digit uplift since 2007/8,” Dr Powell says. The reasons for the price growth? She has four – being able to work from home, the increase in interstate migration, people looking to buy holiday homes due to the inability to travel overseas and value for money. For investors, it’s the lure of capital growth and a strong rental market. There have been many winners in this

market but for some affordability is a niggle that won’t go away. Buyers from the capital cities, particularly from south of the border where equity growth has also been extraordinary, are coming to the Coast with more purchasing power. It’s that “bang for the buck” which she says is a major driver for interstate owner-occupier and investors. While she thinks the Coast has seen the peak of the interstate migration, with borders opening and a push for international migration, particularly skilled

workers, Dr Powell says there will be additional demand from this cohort on housing at possibly higher price points. “The ability to work remotely, which I think will be part of our working culture moving forward, and for areas that offer lifestyle where you can walk from your home and have sand between your toes is really going to still be front of mind for buyers,” Dr Powell says.

SURF REPORT with MWP’s man in the water

Well, Noosa certainly turned it on last week if you could get in you would have found the best waves in decades. Crazy stories coming in. One surfer took two hours to drive from Noosa car park to Peregian Beach. A very good advertisement for electric bikes. Oh, and Double Island also had the goods. This weekend small waves – so get what you can. Laters.
