As an immigrant to this wonderful country some 30 years ago, I am so proud to call Australia home. Known as the lucky country, it has certainly lived up to its name for our family. We are so fortunate to live in a land of opportunity – a melting pot of diverse cultural backgrounds. The first custodians of this wonderful country, our First Nations people, have lived on this vast continent for tens of thousands of years and have a history rich in heritage and tradition, something we should be immensely proud of as a nation. NAIDOC week, which runs from July 3 to 10, is an opportunity for Australians to gain a deeper understanding of First Nations people, to help build an even more united community. This week, Caitlin Zerafa chats with Darcy Cavanagh, CEO of local charity REFOCUS – who is making a huge

Builders facing a tough year

ahead Building approvals are down while costs are up – the Sunshine Coast’s all-important construction industry is bracing for a challenging 12 months ahead. WORDS: Peter Hall.


ew home approvals on the Sunshine Coast have fallen by 26 per cent as experts say the region’s crucial construction industry faces a series of challenges. The latest snapshot, for the April quarter, shows the number of apartments and units approved also fell, dropping by 52 per cent. Industry experts say the data looks worse than reality as the figures are compared with the “unprecedented” highs seen over the corresponding period the previous year and are still above pre-COVID levels. However, ongoing material price rises, critical labour shortages, housing affordability, inflation and interest rate rises pose significant challenges for the market in the next 12 months. Another major issue is an undersupply of shovel-ready land that experts say could constrain building activity in 2023. Despite new home approvals, renovations continue to rise. The value of alterations and additions

on the Sunshine Coast in the three months to April 2022 was $70.26 million, up 22 per cent on 2021, but down four per cent over the past 12 months compared with the previous year. Housing Industry Association (HIA) branch manager Ken Smith tells Sunshine Coast News that new home approvals are expected to fall in the next 12 months, but there is still plenty of pent-up demand in the system. Mr Smith says the figures are coming off unprecedented highs from last year, buoyed by the $25,000 federal home builder grants and extremely low interest rates, and “people scrambling to take advantage of them”. “The latest approval figures are certainly down, but coming off an extremely high base,” he says. “The 12-month snapshot, which shows a slight drop, is a better reflection at this stage.”

Mr Smith says there are major concerns for the sector, which employs tens of thousands of people on the Sunshine Coast. The majority of builders in the industry currently are caught in “a

“The latest approval figures are certainly down, but coming off an extremely high base” profitless boom” as material and labour costs are spiking and lead times for many home completions have blown out considerably. “There seems to be enough work in

the system for 12 months, but whether there is going to be any profit for builders is a different story.” Mr Smith says most builders employ dozens of sub-contractors, so there is “an enormous flow-on effect” to the local economy. Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee also highlights the building industry is facing numerous challenges that will impact established house prices, which have already exploded more than 60 per cent during the pandemic. The median on the Sunshine Coast is now $1.108 million, the second-highest in the country, behind Sydney and ahead of Canberra. HIA economist Angela Lillicrap says land supply is set to constrain building activity in 2023. “The decline in the volume of sales while the price continues to increase rapidly is a clear indication that there is a significant shortfall of shovel-ready residential land,” she says. “Other leading indicators, including HIA’s New Home Sales Report, show that demand for housing remains elevated compared to pre-COVID levels. However, the sales occurring are now looking to a commencement in at least 12 months’ time.” HIA’s economics team will be closely following the approval data in coming months. The Sunshine Coast patterns are being mirrored on the Gold Coast and Greater Brisbane, which have seen similar drops in activity during the start of 2022.

The world’s first computer was called the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC). Built in the US in 1946, ENIAC weighed more than 27,000 kilos and took up a room larger than 450 square metres. Shortly after construction, ENIAC was sent off to the military, where it was used to calculate ballistic trajectories with frightening accuracy.

By the numbers The Australian government banned the word ‘mate’ for a day. In 2005, federal parliament took a few citizen complaints a little too seriously and banned anyone on their staff from using the word ‘mate’ while at work. Fortunately, former prime minister John Howard objected, claiming ‘mate’ was an important part of Australian culture, and the ban was overturned within 24 hours.

It’s time to come together As the Sunshine Coast community readies itself for NAIDOC Week celebrations next week, My Weekly Preview speaks to First Nations residents about their commitment to culture and their people. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

REFOCUS practitioner Rommi Pukall. Image: Natasha Jade


rom July 3 to 10 Australia will recognise an important time known as NAIDOC Week. The week is a chance for everyone to gain a deeper understanding of First Nations peoples, their culture and traditions and build a more united and accepting community. NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s, which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. The Sunshine Coast is home to the Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi and Jinibara people where for more than 20,000 years, the traditional custodians hunted in the surrounding ranges, fished the rivers and gathered seafood from the ocean. This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and it calls on the community to rally for systemic change and continue to support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative and co-operative reforms. On a local level, one organisation working day in, day out to make a difference is REFOCUS. The charity is making a profound difference in the wellbeing of Indigenous youth and their families across the region.

12 My Weekly Preview | June 30, 2022

12.indd 1

REFOCUS has been delivering wellbeing support services to the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay and Gympie regions since 2010. The charity stands for ‘Redirecting and Empowering Families through Culturally Unique Services’ and provides a range of programs to support children to reach their full potential. REFOCUS CEO Darcy Cavanagh first began working in the youth and child protection sector in 1998 and knows firsthand the need for this type of support in the local community. “My interest in this line of work comes from my brief experience of being placed in the foster care system with my two brothers and the life that followed being returned home,” he says. “A lot of my experience, or so-called expertise, has come from my lived experience and learning from every person that I have come into contact with through my childhood and working career. “All these experiences led to the foundation of creating an organisation that focuses on the people and creates opportunity for people’s voices to be heard. “The service is not just about ticking boxes and reaching targets; it reaches the heart of a person and creates meaningful change and a sense of belonging.” Launching REFOCUS with six staff, and now with a team more than 60, the charity supports thousands of individuals

through a variety of programs across its catchment area, with a specific focus on children under 18. Programs include family wellbeing services, family participation programs, NDIS support services, foster and kinship care as well as Aboriginal medical service Gunyah of Wellness. Someone who knows how important REFOCUS’ services are is 22-year-old Tyrone Peisker. Struggling at school and having trouble connecting to his culture, the proud Aboriginal man was able to find a sense of belonging and tap into his creative side with the help of the organisation. “I was a young teenager who needed a lot of support to help me find my way,” Mr Peisker says. “I struggled at school and understanding [in] my mind what was going on around me. “REFOCUS team helped me connect to my culture, skills and interests that I didn’t know I had, like writing rap songs about my family and what I was going through as a young teenager. “I got to produce and film my own rap video, which was fun. I was able to connect with the local PCYC and gained awards for the writing work I did. “REFOCUS helped me to learn independent skills like going to appointments, cooking, cleaning, communicating with adults and the community, and work through my

Tyrone Peisker emotions. I am now able to live independently and make decisions for my life. Without them I don’t think I would be where I am now standing up for my life.” From a different perspective, youth worker Thomas Gower also found a purpose with REFOCUS. The 26-year-old Palawa man was born and raised on local land and speaks highly of how wellbeing services can make a difference to others in similar situations to himself, after he left school at a young age to work. “Due to my lack of education, I bounced through different jobs from manual labour to a deckhand on a fishing trawler. I was living a life without purpose. I had lost my identity,” he says. “At the beginning of 2018 REFOCUS offered me a traineeship in community

Thomas Gower services. Since then, I have been able to continue my studies in the field of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health while working within the child and family wellbeing space, redirecting and empowering my community just as REFOCUS once did for me.” Mr Gower says NAIDOC Week is important not only for celebrating the strength and success of First Nations people, but to help bridge the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures. “Being a young Indigenous person, I feel a great sense of pride in what our elders and ancestors have achieved – one of those achievements being the creation of Aboriginal Community Controlled organisations. “I believe people with a background like mine possibly wouldn’t have the opportunity to get involved with helping the community if they weren’t around, like

who gives a young fella with a limited education and a manual labour background a chance to explore a career in serving people? “I think about the future of other young ones and if they can see the pathway I have taken and believe they can be more, our future looks promising and the work we do with our community will be worthy of the acknowledgment – past, present and future.” As REFOCUS looks ahead, Mr Cavanagh says the organisation is currently part of a significant piece of legislative child protection work in Queensland, accepting to be one of two early adopter sites for Delegation of Authority. “Delegation of Authority is where the Director-General of the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs (DCYJMA) delegates her authority for the CEO of REFOCUS to make legislated child protection decisions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children on child protection orders,” Mr Cavanagh says. “This is a first for Queensland and the work each early adopter sites develop lays the platform for the rest of the state around First Nation services and people making legal child protection decisions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. “REFOCUS, since inception, has practiced this year’s NAIDOC theme Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and this is even more evident with the outcomes of the work achieved.” Find out at

FAST FACTS • REFOCUS to date has provided its family wellbeing services to more than 2000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, comprising nearly 600 individuals. • The organisation has supported more than 450 parents/carers through the Family Participation Program. • It provides support for 168 children yearly who are in foster care. • Primary healthcare services are provided to more than 5000 patients, including 2000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members through the Gunyah of Wellness medical centre, which is not government funded.

NAIDOC WEEK ON THE COAST ARTS SCENE Munnimbah-dja Indigenous culture space is a First Nations-run gallery in Maleny. Meaning ‘welcome place’, it is an Indigenous-run consultancy, art gallery, shop front and yarning place created co-founders Bj Murphy (Jinibara) and Libby Harward (Quandamooka). Their aim is to position contemporary urban Aboriginal art in the local arts ecology and explore, connect, engage and share with non-Indigenous audiences on their own terms. Recently receiving Regional Arts Development Funding, Munnimbahdja will develop visual arts project ‘Ba-Banju-Njam: Come along with us’ – a series of gallery artworks and complementary products to attract mainstream audiences. Head to to find out more. My Weekly Preview acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of this land, the Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi and Jinibara peoples. We recognise cultural, spiritual, social and economic significance of the region.

As part of NAIDOC Week 2022, Sunshine Coast Council will be holding a range of events including flag raising, family fun days and art exhibitions. “NAIDOC Week is a great opportunity to reflect on and celebrate First Nations culture, heritage and the First Nations community’s proud history of getting up, standing up, and showing up,” Community Portfolio councillor David Law says. The council has also updated its Reconciliation Action Plan, which Mayor Mark Jamieson says highlights the continued commitment to promoting the self-determination of First Nations peoples. Mayor Jamieson says the plan focuses on providing equitable economic, employability and education opportunities within the organisation, and ensuring a strengthened working relationship with First Nations peoples and a continued effort to advance reconciliation. NAIDOC Week celebrations will begin with a flag-raising ceremony at Nambour Forecourt on the corner of Currie and Bury streets on July 4 at 9am.

BRICKMAN EXHIBITION OPENS ON THE COAST Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught visited the region to check out his latest exhibition, now on at The Wharf Mooloolaba. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.


or some people, life has a funny way of working out. Whether it was his destiny or simply chance, when Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught walked into a corporate meeting back in 2008, the result led him to exactly where he was meant to be. “I worked in IT for a big media organisation,” he tells My Weekly Preview during his visit to the Sunshine Coast last week. “One day my big boss said she wanted to have a meeting about the number of meetings that were happening. “I said, ‘I’d had enough of that’. I loved LEGO, my kids loved LEGO and I thought maybe we could do something with that.” One simple idea, that’s all it took. And block by block, Brickman built his future. Today he is one of only 21 LEGO Certified Professionals in the world, and the only one in the southern hemisphere. He has built a team of 23 skilled LEGO artists who create the unimaginable from those colourful little bricks. Brickman currently has 10 exhibitions around the world – the latest is right here in Mooloolaba. There have been workshops, books, visits to the “mothership’’ in Denmark, also known as LEGO headquarters, and in 2019,

Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught with young fan Ollie in Mooloolaba he burst on to Australian TV screens as one half of Channel Nine’s LEGO Masters duo. Alongside co-host and comedian Hamish Blake, Brickman continues to draw millions of viewers – both young and old – to the reality show each season. Last week, the LEGO Masters team took home its first Logie. “It really was a team effort.” Always humble, always willing to wear his heart of his sleeve, Brickman’s true colours shone brightly when he met with

a few lucky young Sunshine Coast fans during his visit to The Wharf to oversee his latest LEGO exhibition, Brickman Cities. This exhibition took 2000 hours to build and features more than 600,000 bricks. With so much work going into each piece, you can’t help but ask what the future has in store for the artwork. “Nine times out of 10 these exhibitions tour around the world,” Brickman says. “At home, [LEGO builds] stay together for a while and then go into the LEGO pile, and become something else. “[On LEGO Masters] after they’ve built, it’s put back in the brick pit and then turned into something else amazing. So if you think about it, one LEGO brick could have been part of 10 awesome builds or 20 amazing things. “That’s the cool thing about LEGO. “The trick is, unlike life, it gives you unlimited do-overs. Just say you build a LEGO bridge, the LEGO bridge first version might not be really good… but you know the second time you build the LEGO bridge it will be better, and the third time will be better and so on and so on. “Sometimes in life you don’t get do-overs. LEGO is pretty cool like that.”

THE DETAILS Brickman Cities at The Wharf Mooloolaba is an interactive, collaborative and educational experience for LEGO lovers young and old. Discover the historical stories of the iconic cities of London, New York, Dubai, Tokyo and Sydney, as told in LEGO. The Brickman Cities experience features for the first time ever a brand-new collaboration with LEGO CITY – an entire wall devoted to showcasing the history of LEGO CITY, with CITY fire stations from decades ago. Get the best-value day out with a combination ticket. This ticket will allow guests same-day access to both SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast and Brickman Cities. SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast and Brickman Cities are open seven days from 9am to 5pm during the school holidays. Brickman Cities closes July 17. For tickets, visit sunshine-coast.

CREATIVE CALLING Empowerment, education and sustainability drive First Nations designer Natalie Cunningham. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


atalie Cunningham loves empowering women through fashion using bold, Indigenous prints. Growing up in Caloundra, the proud Nucoorilma/Ngarabal and Biripi woman incorporates the teachings of her culture and the needs of a modern woman with her range of swim and resort wear. Now in Landsborough, she is making

waves in the fashion industry, gaining international recognition and providing a platform for Indigenous and sustainable fashion to thrive. Ms Cunningham’s mother was a model, her father is an artist and her grandmother made clothes and worked for David Jones, so it was only natural she is also creative. Ms Cunningham began her career as

a model and was part of the 2000 Olympic Games. At age 15 she left home and went to TAFE to learn to sew and has been in the industry since 2006. But it was after having children that Ms Cunningham found her fashion calling and her label, Native Swimwear Australia, was born. “As a young mother I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin when my son wanted to go down to Caloundra beach,” she says. “I couldn’t find a swimsuit that was supportive enough, yet stylish for young mothers. So, I mixed everything I knew together from being brought up in the fashion industry and found my own niche.” She says while she began with young mothers is mind, now her label reaches all ages and body types. She was also the first Australian Indigenous designer to feature in New York Fashion Week in 2015. Sourcing her prints from First Nations artists in remote Australian communities, Ms Cunningham says a strong focus for her is sustainability. “Each artist I work with has a different painting and each painting tells a different Dreamtime story,” she says. “They are all education stories and they provide a lesson in our culture about how things were or how things are. “A lot about my culture is only taking

what you need and as a leader in the industry I find it very important as a First Nations person to really focus on sustainability. “My label is made 100 per cent from recycled or regenerated materials, like plastic bottles or fishing nets. “That is the way we are brought up. Grab enough food for the tribe, and I have followed that through.” Ms Cunningham is pleased with how far Indigenous fashion has come, and how versatile it now is. “I’ve seen fashion change since I was a model to now as a designer. The Indigenous clothes were very souvenir when I began; not too many people were doing what I do, but now there are so many Indigenous designers. “The ready-to-wear fashion is not only sustainable, but it is being made for all bodies. It really has really come a long way. “We are also really using the platform to teach non-Indigenous people about our culture through fashion. It’s important and I am very blessed I can do that.” Ms Cunningham is also part of the David Jones First Nations Designer Capsule Collection featuring other emerging First Nations designers.

DONATE TO HELP NATION’S HOMELESS As the weather remains chilly outside, the seventh annual Heat the Homeless appeal is warming up. Since the appeal was founded in 2016 as an initiative of the brand XTM Performance, more than 20,000 snow jackets have been donated to keep those facing homelessness warm across Australia. This year, Anaconda, including the Maroochydore and Kawana Waters stores, will act as collection points for goodquality pre-loved snow jackets to then distribute to a network of more than 200 charities. “If you are heading into an Anaconda store to upgrade your current jacket, it’s a great time to look through your cupboards and see how you can give back,” Anaconda CEO Chris Lude says.

More than $6 million has been allocated to resurface about three kilometres of the Sunshine Motorway between Maroochydore and Mooloolaba. “The Sunshine Motorway is an important part of the state-controlled road network and the new surface will be welcomed by the 58,000 motorists who travel this section each day,” Member for Nicklin Robert Skelton says. From early July, crews will start asphalt resurfacing southbound along the motorway from north of the Maroochy Boulevard overpass, Maroochydore, to just past Mooloolaba Road, Mooloolaba. The works will take eight weeks, weather permitting and will be carried out at night to minimise impacts to motorists.


Steph Wood and Cara Koenen

HEADING TO BIRMINGHAM Sunshine Coast Lightning’s Cara Koenen and Steph Wood have been selected as part of the 12-strong Australian Diamonds netball team that will travel to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Commonwealth Games debutant Cara Koenen says she is thrilled to have made the team. “It’s just pure elation. I’m very honoured and obviously it’s a very competitive landscape in the Diamonds squad at the moment so to be able to attain a spot and be lining up with Steph as well is really exciting and I can’t wait to go to my first Games.” The Australian Diamonds will complete training camps in Perth and Manchester before the Birmingham Games, which runs from July 28 to August 8.

OUR CLEVER COMMUNITY The Sunshine Coast is being named a 2022 Top7 Intelligent Community, a status awarded by New York-based Intelligent Community Forum (ICF). ENTAG CEO and Sunshine Coast Tech Industry Alliance chair Kris Carver says it is an honour for the region to be recognised among other communities from Brazil, Canada, Taiwan and Vietnam. “The Sunshine Coast is viewed internationally as a connected and smart community due to its thriving Industry 4.0 growth in fintech, agritech, cleantech and advanced manufacturing,” Mr Carver says. “The growth of these industries is only possible thanks to a connected local ecosystem of extensive digital infrastructure, talent pathways from high school through to TAFE and university, cross-industry support and aligned local government initiatives.”

Officer in Charge of the Sunshine Coast Dog Squad, Sergeant Craig Law, with his former police dog Ajax

FOUR-LEGGED HEROES Queensland Police dogs and their handlers are celebrating 50 years of protecting our state. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


ust like a superhero with a trusty sidekick in a movie, a specially trained police dog and police officer go hand in hand. Tasked to assist in a variety of frontline policing roles, police dogs complement the work of human officers and often go above and beyond in ways people cannot. In 2022, the Queensland Police Service (QPS) dog squads are celebrating 50 years of support to the state. Introduced in 1972, dog squads provide efficient and effective support in tactical first response. The QPS has 15 dog squads with 86 dog teams, and the Sunshine Coast District Dog Squad includes six experienced and dedicated handlers and their police dogs.

At the helm is Officer in Charge of the Sunshine Coast Dog Squad Sergeant Craig Law and police dog Chuck. The local squad began in 1984 with two handlers, and in that time 47 police dogs have served the region. As well as six-yearold Chuck, today the squad includes Chico, Ninja, Darth, Maloo and Brock. There are several areas police dogs can be trained in, and police dogs on the Coast are general purpose dogs. General purpose dog teams offer support to first responders and track someone who has left an incident, may have committed an offence or is missing. These dogs are trained to track by smelling a person’s scent. “Our main roles are to assist with

break and enter offences where offenders decant from a scene, for tracking situations, sieges, major incidents, missing persons – anywhere a dog can help remedy or assist to searching,” Sgt Law says. “An offender might run from a scene and disappear into the darkness and low and behold some of these dogs can track anything a kilometre away or further.” Sgt Law says a police dogs’ work can be lifesaving. “We’ve had scenarios where our dogs have located people that without intervention the person would have lost their life. “That could be tracking and locating a missing person, mental health patients or people who are suicidal.” When not on the front line, police dogs enjoy life as a family pet with their handlers. Sgt Law says it is a rewarding role training and raising a police dog from a puppy to service and they always know when it is time to work or play. “I can think of countless scenarios where I’ve got the dog at home throwing a tennis ball around with the kids and then an hour later, he is tracking an angry offender into the bushland. “They know when they get in the car and have their equipment on it is work time, then when they are home, they chill out and enjoy home life just like us.” Police dogs go through training programs for around 18 months before transitioning to frontline work. QPS has a hybrid program, either breeding or purchasing German shepherd puppies to grow into general purpose police dogs. Other dog squad roles in Queensland include drug detection dogs, blood detection dogs and cadaver dogs to locate human remains. Sgt Law says depending on their health and size, police dogs usually serve for seven years before retiring to live a happy life at home with their handlers.


A much-needed project is set to improve parking and pedestrian safety in a hinterland hub. The main street of Palmwoods will receive a makeover, with work to start in coming months. Residents were invited to have their say on a revised concept design for improvements on Margaret Street earlier this year. Key features of the proposal include a car parking area in the centre of the road with wider than standard bays, a new pedestrian crossing near Ricks Garage, a raised speed platform and a U-turn facility. The $1 million project is funded under the Australian government’s Road Safety Program with the federal government contributing $800,000 and the Queensland government contributing $200,000. Construction is expected to start soon and take about two months to complete, weather permitting.

CADETSHIP APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR TECH-SAVVY STUDENTS The Peregian Digital Hub is calling for the Coast’s top talented Year 10 and 11 maths, technology and arts students to apply for its next digital design and web development cadetships. Equivalent to first-year university level, the programs aim to inspire ‘cadets’ to learn hands-on skills taught by experts through weekly classes as well as offering exciting vocational pathways to earn through paid internship opportunities. “The cadetships offer non-linear learning for smart, self-motivated young people with unique opportunities to stretch themselves doing professional-

level work,” Peregian Digital Hub director Chris Boden says. “For talented students, it’s an opportunity to develop skills in some of the most sought-after areas of technology – web development and digital design.” He says cadets will need a strong interest in advanced maths and technology or have a creative passion and talent for expressing their ideas visually through drawing, illustration, or graphic design. Applications for the program close on July 3. More information is available under the ‘Learn’ tab at

Sue Bardon, Mary White, Beth Fahy and Bron Kennedy at the Aveo Peregian Springs fundraiser

Earlier this month Aveo Peregian Springs residents hosted a gala fashion parade to raise funds for youth mental health. The event raised $5410 for Youturn Youth Support, a charity service that last year supported more than 9000 vulnerable young Australians and their families. Youturn’s Susan Beaton says its mental health programs, delivered through five headspace centres, including in Maroochydore, are running at capacity with wait lists growing. “We know this is not acceptable, which is why fundraising is so important,” she says. “Events such as this highlight one of the biggest protective factors for young people that are doing it tough in having a caring community, who will listen, understand, show compassion and help those who are struggling to seek the support they need.”

COMMUNITY CENTRES RECEIVE FUNDING INCREASE Neighbourhood and community centres on the Sunshine Coast will receive a much-needed boost after the recent 2022-23 state budget. Member for Nicklin Rob Skelton says as part of this, annual operational funding for Nambour Community Centre will increase by more than $100,000 in 2022-23. “This additional funding will allow the centre to hire new staff, buy equipment and deliver additional services and support for people who need it most – including those experiencing domestic

and family violence, social isolation and loneliness, homelessness, and financial stress,” he says. “For vulnerable people in our community, this support can be life changing. I’m sure this news will be welcomed by the hard-working staff and volunteers at our local centre, along with the wider community.” Community centres still rely heavily on the generosity of residents and businesses to help fund services and programs, but this announcement will see a $115.8 million investment over four years.

Jane Stephens is alarmed by the number of young people stealing vehicles, and writes we must change the language around this crime.

After Ashley Robinson was recently blinded by the light at Dicky Beach, he’s pondering beach houses past and future.


here is nothing joyful about it. Nothing that lifts the spirits. Nothing that nourishes the soul. And, truth be told, it is less a ride than a rip-off. We must stop calling the theft of a vehicle and the dash away with it a joyride. Joyride implies freedom, a treat and an indulgence. But that is not how the term is being used lately, and that usage needs to stop. The term ‘joyride’ should not apply to the wave of underage drivers stealing cars and driving them literally like they stole them. The little beggars are rarely alone, seemingly heightened by committing crimes in the company of other lost boys and girls. A boy, aged just 13, died near Toowoomba last week when the stolen VW Golf he was in rolled. He was one of four children in the car, and all were hurt. Three teenage girls, believed to be 15, lifted keys from a bag on the sideline of a Kedron footy field last week, stole a coach’s HiLux and livestreamed their highway escapades. And two boys gone wild stole a VW Golf car from Burleigh, rammed four police cars and several other vehicles on the Gold Coast.

Also this month, four young people, including a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy, were finally stopped at Meridan Plains with road spikes after nicking a car from Brisbane’s southside. What is going on? The problem with ‘joyride’ being used to describe these escapades is that it doesn’t imply criminality. It doesn’t imply wanton disregard for another person’s valuable possession. It doesn’t imply the danger that stealing a car and taking off in it poses to self and others. The language must change. We did it with the coward punch. The act of hot-headed, sudden violence used to be called a ‘king hit’ until we wised up to there being nothing regal or dignified about it. It is a selfish assault by a gutless individual and now we all correctly label it that way. When a car is stolen, it is not a joyride for anyone, even if the young hoodlums think it is. When a person too young to hold a licence and too young to be named and shamed flogs a car and puts pedal to the metal on our streets, they are just reckless, rebellious little criminals.

ne of my many issues is I have some cognitive drama – bright lights, enclosed spaces, tight hallways, alleyways and even supermarket aisles sometimes set off a notfeeling-too-well episode. Recently I was driving back from Caloundra when just near Dicky Beach corner I was blinded by the sun and had a feeling of being closed in. I felt nauseous and I wasn’t sure what set it off until I stopped the car and looked back. The source of my issue was that massive house that completely dominates the corner, and just last week I saw an article about other motorists having issues with the reflection of the sun off the glass in the nearly completed mansion. It seems council and the owner are working towards a solution. Now in my opinion that is one ugly house doing absolutely nothing for the beachfront apart from overpowering it but I suppose that is the owner’s prerogative. As long as it complies with regulations they can build whatever they like, but it would have been lovely to see something reflecting back to what used to be there. There would be some turning in the

graves of some of the past neighbours on that historical strip of beachfront homes that include seeing a Test great playing beach cricket, a Governor-General jogging past with his Federal Police bodyguards and a well-known local doctor playing the bagpipes in his kilt to usher in each new year. On the flip side just last week I read a story about Tristan Kurz renovating an old home overlooking Kings and Shelly beaches respecting its heritage and coming up with something magnificent with a soul. An outstanding effort. I shouldn’t be surprised though as the Kurz family have long been on the Coast and everything they have built has had some class about it. I guess Elton John might be able to do a sequel to his hit song Club at the End of the Street, maybe Supermarket at the Start of the Strip. Maybe it could become a tourist attraction, with no SS Dicky wreck there anymore maybe they could call it Fort Dicky. Each to their own I suppose – anyway I feel nauseous just thinking about it. I might have to use the inland carriageway in future.

TAKING COMFORT Let’s face it, in winter, food should make us feel good, writes Sami Muirhead. So what’s on the menu?


an we talk comfort food, friends? My buddy Blythe is juggling work, a baby and a four-yearold. Her smart husband asked if there was anything he could pick up for her while he was at the shop. “A Milk Arrowroot but with more pizazz please,” she said. The pressure! What would you come home with? It’s an intimidating brief. I think I would have grabbed a packet of Monte Carlos and some of those little pillow-shaped spicy fruit biscuits. Who does not love a biscuit with their tea or coffee in winter? It is that time of year when we are turning to a little comfort food more than ever. Comfort food is all in the stomach of the beholder. My sister was sick a few weeks back and asked me to grab her two tins of spaghetti and drop them to her front door. I refused this ridiculous request and promptly bought pizza, pasta, chocolate and soup and left the stash outside her house. In my opinion, tinned spaghetti is for camping, people. But my sister goes mad for the stuff when she is crook. I asked my friends what their comfort food is in winter and many said chicken and corn soup. If it is homemade this is as magical and soothing as a field of rainbow

unicorns. Soraya summed it up best with this: “Chicken soup, made from a broth of boiled bones and vegetables then filled with herbs, shredded breast, and a grated apple. It is the ultimate winter staple.” Amanda finds solace in risotto. Maria cannot resist hot chips and tomato sauce. Tricia is an advocate of lamb shanks and a good red around the fire pit. Caroline’s cheese toastie is a bit gourmet and must have pickles and chilli with Mersey Valley cheese. Denise’s ultimate comfort food is anything in the slow cooker and a chai latte. My big brother loves a beef stroganoff. Maree says red wine and chocolate fill the needy void. Tammy had some wise words as she gave two thumbs up to any form of apple desserts including apple crumble, apple pie, apple sponge and apple strudel, all served with custard. So, feast away, friends and stay well nurtured this winter. And if you are wondering what biscuit that clever husband bought for Blythe, who was waiting at home for something along the lines of a Milk Arrowroot but with a little more pizazz. He bought a packet of Venetian biscuits. Yes, the round ones with vanilla icing and raisins in them. Well played.

BUDGET SET TO DELIVER FOR LOCAL BUSINESS The council has delivered its budget for the year ahead with a focus on creating economic opportunities. WORDS: Andrew Eves-Brown Head of Economic Development Sunshine Coast Council


ast week, Sunshine Coast Council handed down its $847 million budget for 2022-23, which focuses on delivering a stronger, better and sustainable region. Local businesses and our economy remain front-of-mind for the council, which is why this budget will invest $39 million in economic initiatives. The Buy Local Sunshine Coast campaign will continue to connect our community with local businesses through the online local business platform to help you find the very best local products, food, and services.

Investment in the Study Sunshine Coast initiative will help leverage the significant benefits that education tourism, talent attraction and international education bring to the region. In the coming year, the council will develop a talent attraction and retention campaign for the Coast to address current workforce shortages in the region. Promotion and support for circular economy initiatives, such as the ASPIRE online business-to-business tool, will aim to encourage businesses to trade, exchange or sell their unwanted waste, reducing waste disposal costs and the

amount of waste sent to landfill. We can all do our bit for the environment. Preparation in the lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic games will continue, as the region engages with international markets and continues plans to make these the first carbon-positive games. The Games will bring the world to the Sunshine Coast – both physically and virtually – and this presents an unparalleled opportunity to showcase our region as an outstanding location for investment, business and tourism experiences. The council will continue to promote and develop the high-value industries and their associated industry groups and chambers and leverage off the Sunshine Coast International Broadband Network project to attract new businesses and jobs to the region. Destination marketing campaigns and support for Visit Sunshine Coast will continue to promote and attract major events and tourists here to enjoy our holiday parks and all the amazing opportunities the Sunshine Coast has to offer. As with previous years, this budget aims to balance investment in our community, our environment and our economy with $273 million invested in job-creating local infrastructure projects to provide both economic opportunities for local businesses, as well as improving access to services and facilities for our communities right across the Sunshine Coast. This capital works will deliver an estimated total economic impact to the Sunshine Coast building and construction industry of more than $408 million and 1005 jobs during construction phase. Council projects will support our local economy and our growing communities

right across the Sunshine Coast – from libraries to road upgrades, improved waste facilities and sports grounds, revitalised town centres, and refreshed walking trails and playgrounds. SUNSHINE COAST OFFICIALLY BECOMES A UNESCO BIOSPHERE In other exciting news for the year ahead, the Sunshine Coast has officially been recognised internationally as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The region now proudly stands as an international site of excellence and an area of natural beauty. Being a biosphere also has a range of benefits, particularly for our tourism, food and agribusiness companies as our biosphere designation will support a sustainable Sunshine Coast brand, which increases the value of products and services. Combining this with businesses having increased awareness of, and adapting to, the global Sustainability Development Goals will help build a stronger region that has a true natural advantage. With this designation, our region has the potential to become a magnet for others from around the world who want to buy from and visit a region that focuses on sustainability.

MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE It’s time for all business owners and managers to check on the wellbeing of their workers. WORDS: Brenda Smith, senior HR consultant, HRM.


his is not another article about the affect COVID has had on the workplace. Let’s just say, since 2020, there is now more focus on the wellbeing of staff in the workplace. Prior to 2020, some businesses already had wellbeing programs, many thought they had and others wondered why they should bother. If anything, COVID was a wake-up call for business owners to check the wellbeing of their staff, in particular those suffering from mental health issue. Safe Work Australia reported 120,355 serious workers’ compensation claims in 2019-2020. Thirty-one per cent of serious claims were attributed to illness and diseases, mental health conditions being the most common. According to Beyond Blue, around one in five Australian employees is likely to be living with a mental health condition, resulting in reduced productivity, increased workers compensation claims, and increased absenteeism and presenteeism.

Presenteeism occurs when an employee works despite being physically sick, mentally ill, injured or exhausted. Unfortunately, due to the stigma of people suffering from a mental health condition, presenteeism is not unusual. Presenteeism is not talked about as much as absenteeism, however, it is just as problematic. The Journal of the American Medical Association studies, for example found that the on-the-job productivity loss resulting from depression and pain was roughly three times greater that the absence-related productivity loss attributed to these conditions. Despite the ramifications of presenteeism and its effect on the profit line, a business that cares for its employees should have an effective wellbeing program that incorporates supporting employees with a mental health condition. Key areas of action should include the following: • Create an environment to raise awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma. For example, include mental health

awareness as part of the on-boarding program. Also include it in your policies and procedures. Ensure that staff are aware that discriminating or bullying someone with a mental health condition will not be tolerated. • Train managers to respond in an appropriate manner for staff members to feel comfortable and safe to discuss their mental health concerns. Many people don’t know how to respond to people with a mental health condition. They might be scared to say the wrong thing, or feel uncomfortable discussing the issue,

particularly if they have not had experience in the area. Managers need to feel comfortable to address, respond and monitor the staff members mental health. • Implement changes to assist the relevant staff member. For example, make changes to their role and/or working environment to enable them to fulfil their duties. Provide flexibility for the staff member to visit their health professional. These strategies will not only support the relevant staff member, the flow-on effect will create a mentally healthy work environment, where people want to work.

THREE TIPS TO BEAT CYBER CRIMINALS Every business is vulnerable to attacks, but there are steps you can take to boost your cyber security. WORDS: Ever Hughes, ENTAG.


here is no question that cyber criminals are becoming more complex, desperate and more determined than ever to breach your data and your information. The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) reported that businesses lost $33 billion over the 2020-2021 financial year, an eye-watering number that you do not want to be a part of. Here are the top three tips for protecting your business, as you can never be over-prepared. 1. Secure end-point devices When you think of protecting your devices, you automatically assume your desktop or laptop. What about your smartphones, printers, POS systems or tablet devices? All endpoint devices pose as entrances into your company’s network – the more devices that connect to your network, the more the risk there is. It is vital to monitor all endpoint devices for any suspicious activity to contain threats before it becomes a catastrophe and disrupts your business.

2. Back up your data – always Backing up your data isn’t just a catchphrase, it is a necessity. Data vulnerability is something that cyber criminals bank on and it can bring your business to its knees. Store important business files and data off-site or in the cloud. In an incident where hackers do breach your devices, you will not have to start from scratch, minimising the downtime of your business operations. Always have a monitored back-up system in order, regularly back up and check your back-up, and ensure your business has a disaster recovery plan. 3. Establish full protection of your email inbox You may think your business emails are protected from cyber threats, but are they protected by consumer-grade or business-grade security? The difference can save your business from dealing with a disastrous situation. Consumer-grade protection is designed to be userfriendly, protect data for a small number

BUSINESS 2 BUSINESS Changes July 1, 2022 – Starting on July 1, government superannuation requirements have changed. These changes will impact how you manage payroll.

Katrina Brennan, principal, SRJ Walker Wayland

Removal of the $450 per month threshold – This means employers will be required to make super guarantee contributions to eligible employees, regardless of how much they earn.


Eligible employees are – over 18 years of age, or are under 18 years of age but work more than 30 hours per week.

The end of the 2022 financial year is here! At this stage of the game for businesses, 2022 tax planning would have been completed and all that could be put in place has been finalised. It’s time to finalise the year that was and get ready for the next.

Super Guarantee Increase – From July 1, the Super Guarantee Contribution will increase from 10 to 10.5 per cent. Your software should update this automatically. But when processing your first pay run after July 1, perform a quick calculation to ensure the change has happened.

KEY DATES FOR YOUR DIARY June 23 – If you wanted to claim the June quarter superannuation payment expense in the 2022 financial year, the ATO suggests you had submitted and approved auto super batches by this date. This should have allowed for contributions to reach the superannuation accounts no later than June 30, 2022. July 14 – STP finalisation should be completed by this date. July 28 – If you have chosen not to claim the June quarter superannuation payment, your payment will be due by this date.

29.indd 1

Other items for the business to consider: • Ensure any bad debts as at June 30, 2022 have been noted for the year end completion. • Make sure all details of stocktake are in order as at June 30, 2022. • Ensure all details of new asset purchases and any assets that no longer exist be reviewed. If you have any questions regarding an end-of-year STP checklist or you would like assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to our Sunshine Coast team on 5301 9957.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM RECENT FWC DECISION A recent decision by the Fair Work Commission (FWC), in Mansfield v Amplified AI Pty Ltd upheld an employer’s decision to dismiss its employee without notice (summary dismissal) following a disclosure of its intellectual property and confidential information by the employee. The employee was dismissed following the creation and public release of an open source design system, very similar to the employer’s visual branding and software design system, in circumstances where a work computer was used to create and publish the open source design system. The employer took steps to dismiss the employee on the basis the conduct warranted summary dismissal consistent with the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code 2011 (the Code). In this case, the employee had

executed an employment agreement as well as a confidentiality and IP assignment agreement (the agreements), which required the employee to protect all aspects of the employer’s intellectual property (IP) and to maintain confidentiality. The FWC upheld the termination and dismissed the employee’s application for unfair dismissal on the basis that the employee’s conduct was serious enough to justify the summary dismissal, in circumstances where the publication disclosed an open source version of the employer’s design system and details of its soon-to-be-released new product, in breach of the agreements. This decision is a reminder of the importance to businesses to protect their IP assets by ensuring employees have executed appropriate employment agreements, including by setting out adequate confidentiality and IP assignment provisions. While the Code provides some relief for small business employers seeking to terminate employees, employers must also ensure their own conduct is in compliance with the Code. Please seek legal advice if you need further information on the adequacy of employment agreements, protecting your business’s IP, or determining whether your business can rely on the Code in a particular context.

The big dollar question

Is it time to review my Will?

Businesses are often confronted with the quandary of what to pay their staff. It is important to create a remuneration package that is attractive, which is not always about the dollar factor. It is important to have a remuneration structure that rewards employees for performing their duties as expected, but it may also have a component that is about rewarding performance that exceeds those general expectations. It may also contain rewards that include additional leave or entitlements outside the agreed salary figure. Thirdly, depending on your award coverage, business budgeting and performance review processes, you will want to link any remuneration review to those key business activities. No matter the configuration, remuneration packages should always be in writing and reviewed each year. Although, contrary to employee expectation, being reviewed does not always mean their remuneration will increase each year (with the exception of award wage increases). Towards the end of the financial year has traditionally been a time for reviewing salaries and it is also coming to the annual review of the minimum wage, which affects wages for those being paid award rates.

This is the ninth in our series of articles on the uncertainties of death. Myth – “I have done my Will and don’t need to look at it again, right?” Wrong! It is important that you regularly review and update your Will. Your estate planning can be affected by a number of life changes. They can typically include: • A change to your marital circumstances. Marrying or entering a registered relationship can revoke your existing Will. The Rules of Intestacy will then divide your estate. More details on the Rules of Intestacy appear in the first of our articles in this series and can be viewed on our website; • The birth of a child or grandchildren; • A child attaining the age of 18 years; • Your executor no longer being appropriate to administer your estate; • You no longer own assets which you have specifically gifted in your Will; • One of your current beneficiaries dying; • Changes to your asset structure such as the establishment of private companies, trusts or a self-managed super fund; • Your superannuation nomination lapsing. By keeping your estate plan up to date, you will ensure the persons you intend to benefit do so.

When an ex won’t agree to a divorce Filing for divorce is a separate issue to a property settlement and/or parenting arrangements, as a divorce is dealt with independently. A divorce merely refers to the dissolution of a marriage. Filing for divorce does not decide any financial or parenting issues and these will need to be dealt with separately. Once the divorce is finalised it will start a limitation period for property settlement/spousal maintenance and you will have 12 months to file an Application in the Court after the Divorce Order takes effect. If your ex is not agreeing to the ‘divorce’ they can only oppose the Order on two grounds: 1. That you have not been separated for the required period of 12 months; or 2. That the Court does not have jurisdiction to grant the divorce. Other ways that your ex could get in the way of you obtaining a divorce Order are: 1. If you have been married for less than two years, you and your ex can only obtain a divorce if you agree to counselling or if there are special circumstances. 2. If there is a reasonable likelihood that you will resume your relationship and your ex can satisfy the Court of that. Read more at

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22) Are you still punishing yourself for mistakes you made many moons ago? Or are you still holding a grudge towards someone who wronged you many years ago? It’s time to forgive others – and yourself – for transgressions from the past.





Prepare for a special week, as the planets activate your relationship zones and put you in the mood for lashings of romance. Be careful what you say on Saturday, when Jupiter squares Mercury and diplomacy and discretion fly out the window.

Mars and Uranus activate creative projects and fire up friendships. The Mercury/Jupiter square could disrupt your daily routine and distract you from domestic responsibilities, so aim to be creative and compassionate, but also robust and resilient.

This week, the sun/Uranus link wakes up a work project or fires up a family dream, while the sun and Mercury energise your wellbeing zone. It’s a good time to review your health and fitness and make appropriate adjustments.

The week starts with Mercury and Venus visiting your domestic zone. The focus is firmly on family and close friends – anyone who is a part of your cherished inner circle. It’s time for good food, relaxed entertaining and cosy

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.




LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23) Librans love to counsel others. This week, with Venus (your power planet) transiting through the dual sign of Gemini, there’ll be two distinct sides to every relationship story. So, when giving advice, make sure you are scrupulously fair to all parties.

The current celestial cocktail includes a sun/Uranus connection, and Mercury moves into your sign. You’re in the mood for change but you’re also feeling sentimental. Proactive Mars encourages you to look to the future with fresh eyes.




Stop gallivanting around in a general fluster and instead focus on revamping your close relationships. With vivacious Venus visiting your sign, it’s time to charge up your charisma. Others will find your Gemini charm hard to resist!

The planetary patterns highlight freedom, independence, creativity and community projects. If you pace yourself, you’ll get things done without feeling frazzled. It’s also a good week to socialise with family, friends and work colleagues.

elebrity couple Lisa Curry and Mark Tabone have revealed why they are reluctantly leaving their beloved hinterland haven and wellness retreat. The three-time Olympian swimmer and entrepreneur and her entertainer husband bought the picturesque 26-hectare former horse property at Crohamhurst in 2017. They had a business vision for their mountain hideaway. As well as creating a wellness and fitness retreat and wedding and events venue from the ground up, they have welcomed the privacy of the personal sanctuary that lies in the valley between Peachester and Maleny on the Blackall Range. And it has been a godsend after recent family tragedies. Our collective hearts went out to Ms Curry, former husband Grant Kenny and their adult children Morgan and Jett after beloved eldest daughter Jaimi died in 2020. She had battled mental illness and associated conditions much of her 33 years. Only 18 months later, Ms Curry’s mother Pat passed away in an aged-care facility at the age of 86. The devastating grief at losing her two “rocks” in such a short time eventually led Ms Curry to clarity of thought about the importance of being closer to family, the preciousness of life and the need to fulfil dreams and goals today. “It’s not until you lose family that you realise more than anything that life is short, so it’s important to live it well with the people you love the most,” she says. Ms Curry co-owns and runs her business Happy Healthy You – an online company offering natural supplements and education to help with women’s health and wellness issues – and Mr Tabone travels for his entertainment gigs most weekends. In addition to their busy work lives, the couple welcomed grandchild number three

in 2022 and Ms Curry relishes baby-sitting a couple of times each week. While they have shared countless happy memories in Crohamhurst, they want to make every moment count with family, including Mr Tabone’s Montvillebased daughter, one of his four adult children. They will say goodbye to the modern, renovated, four-bedroom, two-bathroom Queenslander-style homestead with saltwater pool and commit to starting the rest of their lives as soon as possible. The estate will be sold as part of an expressions of interest campaign being conducted by agents Darren and Jenny Rix from The Property League. “This is a very private residence,” says Mr Rix. “It has a lovely long driveway leading up to the property, so you have to drive about 300 metres from the road before you can see anything, which a lot of people buying acreage are looking for.” Mr Rix says the property will appeal to a wide range of buyers, from those seeking to continue Ms Curry and Mr Tabone’s vision

to create a hinterland retreat, to equine lovers, to those who simply want a peaceful acreage lifestyle. “The horse arena is currently not in use, but it could easily be converted back again and there are good pastures for horses to enjoy,” Mr Rix says. Ms Curry and Mr Tabone are keen car enthusiasts and the property features several antique car bodies dotted throughout, adding to the charming rustic feel. Boasting a lagoon-style swimming pool, Mr Rix says it’s all about the lifestyle at this glorious hinterland oasis. “The home itself is a charming Queenslander, with a very homely feel,” he says. “While the finish reflects the aesthetics of rural architecture, it also embraces modern comforts, creating a look that feels both cosy and stylish.” “The first 30 years of my life I spent swimming and training,” Ms Curry says. “The next 30 years was spent raising a family and working, and now, this is the start of my next 30 years of my life, so I think it’s time for us to enjoy life together. “This is a beautiful place to either work it as a business, or a beautiful place to retire, or just to be in nature, have land all around you and just tinker with your passions. Whoever buys this place will be very happy.” Together, the couple have upscaled and repurposed existing facilities over the past five years to include a large function room with decking and ample parking suitable for rustic-chic weddings, corporate events and parties; and a fully functioning gym with outdoor shower and an amenities block with four toilets and showers. There is also a glamping area with firepit, outdoor kitchen, pizza oven and barbecue. The ‘man cave’ is big enough to fit a motorhome, boat or 10 or more cars and there is a treehouse with a swing and



Lisa Curry and Mark Tabone are ready to start the next phase of their life and have put their Crohamhurst hideaway up for sale. WORDS: Shirley Sinclair.

“This is a beautiful place to either work… or to retire or just to be in nature” sandpit, plus an amphitheatre that can transform into an open-air cinema. Glamping tents also are permitted to be set up on site. “We did the hard yards here including all the council permits required to run weddings and events, so it’s all ready to go,” Mr Tabone says. “There’s so many pockets here that are really enjoyable retreat spaces. We built a meditation circle by the creek and a nature walk that goes for about 1.5 kilometres. “The old horse arena is the glamping area with a central fireplace, so everyone gathers around at night and sits around the fire under the million stars.” And then there’s the views – up to the Blackall Range and down to the treeline. While so many improvements already have been made, the couple believes the 26-hectare property will be in demand as a blank canvas for someone to take full advantage of what they have started but also make their own mark.

HOW TO MAKE WISE PROPERTY DECISIONS Now is the time for property investors to reassess their assets and consider adding to their portfolio. WORDS: John Stamp.


“The Sunshine Coast property market is moving from an extended period of hyper growth and historically low vacancy rates”


John Stamp is the director and auctioneer at Belle Property Maroochydore.






60 %







he Sunshine Coast property market is moving from an extended period of hyper growth and historically low vacancy rates to a more balanced stage in the real estate cycle. This shift, which is long overdue, brings with it many challenges and opportunities. Investors looking to enter the market will begin to see more choice, and this brings the ability to purchase more suitable properties that just were not an option six months ago at a price which may represent a discount from recent months. The rental market, however, has not yet seen the same price adjustments and these two factors combined result in a win-win situation for investors. When markets change, it is the perfect time to reassess your property. Having an agent conduct an appraisal for both sales value and rental income ensures that your asset is working its best for you, and it helps you accurately understand your equity position. Armed with this information you can make wise property decisions and the weeks surrounding the new financial year are the best time to get informed. Make the call today.

11 Monks Crescent, Buderim


he age-old call of ‘location, location, location’ rang true when ‘the worst house in the best street’ sold under the hammer for $985,000 at auction on the weekend. Ray White auctioneer Jake Loiero says there were five registered bidders with three active bidders for the two-bedroom home at 11 Monks Crescent, Buderim. “It was a unique opportunity because it was essentially a blank canvas, “ he says. “A knock-down.” “It was called on the market at $900,000 and then, with two bidders, it got up $985,000.” The long-time family-owned property was sold to a local buyer who is looking to build his dream home.

UNIT LIVING There was strong bidding for an Alexandra Headland unit that fetched $955,500 straight after the auction. Ray White agent Candice Contencin says the four-week campaign garnered five registered bidders and plenty of interest. The three-bedroom, threebathroom unit sold to a local buyer who will be an owner-occupier. In another successful Alexandra Headland unit auction Ms Contencin saw a two-bedroom unit sold under the hammer for $695,000. The holiday apartment at 9/7- 9 Juan Street also attracted plenty of attention from interstate visitors familiar with the complex. “Many of the interested people had holidayed in the complex,” she says. Although two out the three active bidders were Victorians, a Brisbane family were the eventual buyers. Similar to other unit owners, they

planned to holiday let it and also use it themselves.

GOING, GOING AND GONE Two large homes were recently sold prior to auction this week by Ray White agent Kylie Kis. There was plenty of interest in the four-bedroom home at 13 Lancewood Close, Buderim, which sold for $1,300,000. “About 61 groups went through the property,” the agent says. In another sale prior to auction, 16 Summer Ridge Place, a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Buderim sold for $1,356,250. “Both groups had huge numbers going through,” Ms Kis says.

SURF REPORT with MWP’s man in the water

Well, you knew this good weather could not last, surely. Yep, there’s some rain coming through with no waves. Last week I cruised down to Lennox and was reminded of the famous rock tattoos you get jumping in and jumping out. Ummm. Sharks can sense/smell blood from 300 metres. Imagine the look on everyone’s face when I start discussing this in the surf while I inspect my bloodied hand!
