Vital shot in the arm against outbreak The federal government has been forced to act quickly to secure hundreds of thousands of doses of a vaccine used to prevent the transmission of monkeypox virus from overseas supplies.


ore than 400,000 monkeypox jabs have been ordered by the federal government in a bid to contain the outbreak. Health Minister Mark Butler announced recently the government had signed an agreement with Bavarian Nordic to secure 450,000 doses, with 22,000 due to arrive in Australia last week. Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly says the first shots could be given as early as next week. The remainder of the doses will arrive later this year and into 2023. The vaccine is a new generation of immunisation, compared with the smallpox jab which is also used to protect against monkeypox. Mr Butler says the vaccine can be used to prevent the transmission of the monkeypox virus, but also as a postexposure treatment. “This vaccine is far more effective and certainly more user friendly for patients which may have compromised immunity,” he says. Professor Kelly says Australia is one of


What is monkeypox? Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. The virus is part of the same family as smallpox.

Australian Health Minister Mark Butler speaks during a press conference at Parliament House in Canberra only a few countries to secure supplies of the vaccine. He says monkeypox can adversely affect immuno-compromised adults, children and pregnant women. “If it gets into those populations, it can be quite severe,” he says. “That’s why we’re taking the steps we’re taking and the vaccines will really help with that.” On the question of whether the number of cases is expected to increase in Australia, Prof Kelly says health authorities have been preparing for the virus since May. “All the work done since May ... and the added benefit of the vaccine will continue to help us to control the epidemic here in Australia and I’m very confident that will happen,” he says. Mr Butler says the vaccine will mostly be available through state and territory sexual health clinics. The government will roll out training for clinicians and a community engagement program. Two health bodies

are forming a taskforce to respond to monkeypox: the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations, and the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine. They commended the government for securing the vaccines. “Gay and bisexual men are already taking monkeypox very seriously, monitoring for symptoms and regularly seeking medical advice. This is a very welcome additional tool,” the federation’s acting chief Heath Paynter said. It is understood all but two of the 58 reported cases in Australia have been among travellers returning from overseas. Gay and bisexual men are most at risk, although it is not a sexually transmitted infection. “We expect the outbreak will begin to slow after 75,000 members of our community have had one dose of the vaccine and may not be eliminated until 250,000 doses have been administered to those who need them most,” the society’s president and sexual health specialist Dr Nick Medland said. – AAP

What are the symptoms? Monkeypox symptoms are similar to smallpox but milder, and it is rarely fatal. Symptoms can include: fever, headache, muscle aches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, exhaustion, respiratory symptoms, and a rash that looks like blisters. How is it spread? The virus can spread from person-to-person through direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs, or body fluids. It also can be spread by respiratory secretions during prolonged, face-to-face contact or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling or sex. In addition, pregnant people can spread the virus to their fetus through the placenta. What treatments are available for monkeypox? There are no treatments specifically for monkeypox virus infections. However, because of genetic similarities in the viruses, antiviral drugs used to treat smallpox may be used to treat infections. How can I prevent getting monkeypox? Avoid close, skin-to-skin contact with people who have a rash that looks like monkeypox. Avoid contact with objects and materials that a person with monkeypox has used.

Hipster History

Do you remember? Portable dictation devices

Did you know? Women are attracted to the alluring scents of perfumes and colognes but another smell combo is also likely to be a turn-on. A 2005 Smell and Taste Treatment Research Foundation study found that the most ‘attractive’ scent for women was Good & Plenty liquorice candy combined with cucumbers. Cherry and barbecue smells were turn-offs, but banana nut bread also had positive effects.

The word ‘hipster’ goes all the way back to the 1930s. While ‘hipster’ is used these days to describe someone who tries (perhaps too hard) to be stylish and trendy, the term is actually much older. states that the word was originally used (along with the similar ‘hepster’) in the 1930s to refer to someone within the jazz scene.

The next two Games after Berlin, which were scheduled to be held in Tokyo and Helsinki, were cancelled due to World War II. The first Olympics to be broadcast on television, the London Olympics was popularly known at the time as the Austerity Games. This was because of the cutbacks the host nation had to make due to the post-war economy. 1962 – The Soviet Space Agency launches Vostok 3.

Dictation devices are often referred to as ‘Dictaphones’ after the company name that became synonymous with them. They came in various formats and used cassette tapes or mini and microcassettes to record interviews, conversations and lectures for later note-taking. Even digital dictation devices are verging on extinction as most mobile phones offer the same functionality.

Comedy with extra

bite Shane Jacobson heads the starstudded line-up of talented performers bursting with hilarious jokes and stories to tickle our funnybones in a new-style entertainment festival coming to Caloundra. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


rowing up watching his own father light up a room, Shane Jacobson knew from an early age he was destined to make people laugh. As one of Australia’s most loveable actors and comedians, there is no doubt Jacobson has put more than a few smiles on faces during his 40-year career. Believing that laughter feeds the soul, the down-to-earth entertainment legend says Aussies have the best sense of humour and whole-heartedly embrace the many television, film and stage productions he has been involved in. But it was a story of Australian soldiers in Afghanistan gravitating towards one of his films that inspired Jacobson’s latest project. That’s Not My Dog! – The Festival is coming to Caloundra this August, bringing with it more than 20 of Australia’s biggest names in comedy and music. Inspired by the 2018 film That’s Not My Dog, the festival will emulate a laid-back gathering where a group of hilarious entertainers will take to the stage together in a bid to outdo each other. Fiona O’Loughlin, Michala Banas, Dave O’Neill and Peter Helliar are some of the names set to feature in the starstudded line-up, with the festival also showcasing local food, beer and wine. Speaking with My Weekly Preview,

Jacobson believes it is more important than ever to find some comic relief amid everyday life and says this festival will be unlike anything else seen before. “The body needs water, and sometimes the soul, heart and mind just need a laugh,” Jacobson says. “Especially after the past few years. We truly think it’s time to laugh again. “This is live, unscripted and dangerous. What I’m looking forward to most is people discovering the festival for what it is. “It’s not a normal comedy festival and it’s not a normal music festival – it’s a mixture. It’s like being invited to a pub with a bunch of comedians and musos and hanging out with them and having a good ol’ laugh.” Jacobson says the name of the film, featuring the likes of Paul Hogan and Jimeoin, and subsequent festival is inspired by the punchline of an old joke. He says That’s Not My Dog has been incredibly successful, with its unlikely audience of serving troops sparking the festival debut. “The film came about because myself and director Dean Murphy realised people just weren’t telling jokes anymore,” Jacobson says. “It was a bit of a dying art and Australians used to be famous for jokes. “We are the custodians of a very special brand of humour in Australia.

“Unbeknownst to us, the film was popular with soldiers serving in Afghanistan. One of those soldiers – his dad runs events – and they would watch the film together when he came back from serving overseas. “It became a great father-son bonding time and they thought it would be a great idea for a festival and contacted us. The rest is history.” Claiming that, aside from food, laughter and music are his favourite things, Jacobson says the arts have a

wonderful power to bring people together. As one of four children, he grew up around a family full of people with the ability to walk into a room and infect others with laughter. “My dad, in particular. Any room he walks into, people will gather around dad because he is so much fun,” Jacobson says.

“Watching my hero – my dad – make people laugh and tell me: ‘How much fun is your dad?’, I absolutely loved it. I never wanted to do anything but that. “I wanted to be able to have that effect on people and I get fuel out of seeing people smile.” Jacobson says Caloundra is the perfect location for the festival, not just because of its relaxed lifestyle, but also its allure for festival-goers to have a weekend away and escape the cold weather. He describes landing at Sunshine Coast Airport like “getting into a warm bath with a champagne in your hand”. “I love the Sunny Coast,” he says. “There is a laid-back lifestyle there that becomes obvious as soon as you land. “I’ve got mates coming up and the Sunny Coast is half the reason they are coming. You can see music and comedy anywhere, but having music and comedy on the Coast sounds like an awesome weekend. “Sunny Coast people have so embraced the festival, too, and the location in Kings Beach Park is custom made for it.” The jam-packed festival schedule will see events across three stages, including a comedy workshop and Mix FM Dad Jokes session. Each night will conclude with a live music performance. “Look out Sunny Coast, here we come,” Jacobson says.

Getting to know the comedians …






What is one of the best reactions you’ve had during a performance? One of the best reactions I’ve had from a comedy performance is people coming up to me after the show and saying, ‘Oh my God, your characters are so relatable’. I love knowing that the characters that I embody in my work are so personal to me yet, at the same time, incredibly universal.

How did your comedy career begin? I have been doing comedy for 30 years. I used to work in the public relations industry in the ’80s. My client was the taxi industry. They asked me what can they do to improve the image of taxis. I said, ‘Have you tried deodorant?’ I got sacked and started doing comedy.

What is one of the best reactions you’ve had during a performance? Starting a cake fight at The Sit Down Comedy Club in Brisbane. A truly outrageous evening. Don’t worry – most of it was eaten. What might we expect from you at the festival?

What is one of the best reactions you’ve had during a performance? My first gig in the US. It was before there were many Aussies going over and I was worried they wouldn’t get me, but it smashed. I think they were surprised we spoke English.

I’m telling some jokes that you can take home. It’s ‘Take Away Comedy’ – all part of the style of the movie and the festival. There’s a lost art in telling jokes to your family and friends, so bring some note paper.

What might we expect from you at the festival? I’m a gag specialist, having grown up around the country’s best joke specialists. My normal stand-up set has a lot more gags than most other acts, rather than situational stuff.

What do you love most about the Sunshine Coast? My favourite thing to do at the Sunshine Coast is go to my favourite Moroccan restaurant, Marrakech, and order the lamb tajine. It is one of those meals that you cannot get enough of.

What is one of the best reactions you’ve had during a performance? I had a woman tell me she laughed so much, she did a bit of wee. She also added she’d had eight kids, so I can’t take all the credit.

That’s Not My Dog! – The Festival is happening at Kings Park, Caloundra, from August 26-28. Australia’s funniest comics and entertainers working together in unique group sessions to outdo one another by telling the funniest jokes and stories possible. Each night will wrap up with a music performance: Ross Wilson and The Peaceniks (Friday), Killing Heidi (Saturday) and Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows (Sunday). The festival precinct areas will include a main stage, food and bar space, comedy and open-mic space, local musicians and big screens. See the program at thatsnotmydogfestival.




What do you love most about comedy? Total creative freedom. When the microphone’s in your hand, you can say whatever you like, so long as it’s funny. Even if it isn’t funny, you can blame the audience for just not ‘getting it’.

What do you love most about the Coast? This is my first trip to Caloundra and I am beyond excited. I’ve done a bit of Googling and it looks like heaven. I’m going to grab as many tips as I can from the locals ... and thoroughly enjoy being warm.

How did your comedy career begin? I fell into comedy through poverty. I used to be a musician in a troop called the Como String Quartet and we did classical music/comedy. We toured all around the world playing festivals. Then in 1990, the recession hit, so I went to the Adelaide Fringe and started to do stand-up so I wouldn’t have to split money with so many dudes.

What is one of the best reactions you’ve had during a performance?

How did your comedy career begin? I collapsed into comedy straight after school and I’ve kept making comedy any way I can.

What do you love most about comedy? I love nothing more than a good laugh. A cracking joke or funny story that makes your face contort and stomach tighten with uncontrollable giggling is one of the best things in life.

What do you love most about comedy? Working 45 minutes a week.


I did a gig in Balmain and after, actor Bryan Brown came up to me and said: ‘That was great, mate! Buy you a beer?’ I said, ‘Bugger me, you’re Bryan Brown!’ and fell backwards on top of his wife. What might we expect from you at the festival? Everything my wife hates about me. I love telling jokes – good jokes, bad jokes, dad jokes. I love them all.

Artist Shyanne Clarke’s piece Interlace will be the next work displayed as part of the program at the MET space. Submissions for the next round close on August 19. Visit

A mother-and-son duo will celebrate the power of storytelling with a special local book launch. Sunshine Coast writer Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane and her eight-year-old son Lincoln Rawlins (pictured) release their respective books The Mindful Author and picture book Sprout’s Idea in one-of-a-kind event. Ms McCarty-O’Kane says guests can “expect the unexpected”. “This will not be a seated talk-fest. Think interactive games, exclusive specials on Ignite & Write Workshops and lots of prizes up for grabs.” The event is on August 18 from 5.30pm at The Lakehouse, Mountain Creek. Tickets are available at

Ahead of storm season, Sunshine Coast residents and business owners are being reminded to have a plan in place, to pack an emergency and evacuation kit and ensure insurance policies are up to date. It comes as the Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) undertakes training to prepare for extreme events, including major flooding. The training sessions are also a chance to put a new digital tool, Guardian IMS, which tracks and shares real-time data during disasters, through its paces. “Guardian is a valuable ally when responding to a disaster, so we’re excited to learn more about its capabilities which will be implemented into our disaster response moving forward,” LDMG chair and Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson says.



GREASING WHEELS OF OPPORTUNITY An innovative Sunshine Coast business hopes to safeguard the Australian Defence Force’s machinery after being named Queensland’s best new product. Founded by three strangers in 2020, GreaseBoss has grown from GreaseBoss co-founder operating in a Meridan Plains Tim Hall garage to supplying one of the world’s largest natural resource companies, Glencore. The start-up won Best New Product Launch at the Bowen Basin Mining Club’s 2022 Queensland Mining Awards. GreaseBoss co-founder Tim Hall says that after 18 months developing a digitised grease gun, the award is a big “credibility tick”. The recognition will place GreaseBoss on the mining industry’s radar and “open doors” in a goal of supplying our army, navy and air force and bringing exciting opportunities to the Sunshine Coast.

$300 MILLION Three major milestones have been marked on the $300 million Mons and Maroochydore interchange upgrade. In the past month, northbound (Exit 200) and southbound (Exit 201) exit ramps and a new, four-lane concrete bridge over the highway have opened to traffic. Both upgraded exits are much longer and wider, to provide more queuing space for traffic. Meanwhile, traffic travelling from Maroochydore Road to Nambour Connection Road has been diverted onto the newly built Maroochydore Road interchange bridge. This temporary diversion will allow works to occur on the existing westbound bridge. Synchronised traffic signals have also been installed at the Maroochydore and Nambour Connection Roads roundabout to improve safety and regulate traffic flow.

BLOOD DONORS FLOW IN AFTER BAN LIFTS An incredible 21,000 Australians have signed up to become blood and plasma donors since the lifting of the UK ‘mad cow’ blood donor ban. New figures from Australian Red Cross Lifeblood reveal 20,711 people booked in for their first blood donation in the first week after the ban was lifted. The rule change means Lifeblood’s Liz Diaz and Brodi Haran that anyone who lived or travelled in the UK for six months or more between 1980 and 1996 can now donate blood and plasma in Australia. Book a donation at, on the DonateBlood app or by calling 13 14 95.

WALL-TO-WALL CREATIVITY Coast artist’s breathtaking murals are big on encouraging passers-by to stop and think about protecting our precious environment. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

Fuzeillear’s work at Wonderwalls Festival in Port Adelaide. Inset: Claire ‘Fuzeillear’ Matthews


Bli-Bli artist whose murals are splashed throughout the region is being recognised for her contribution to community and advocacy for protecting the environment. Claire Matthews, affectionately known in the artist world as ‘Fuzeillear’, has been painting across the Sunshine Coast for nine years. Among her best-known works is Moustache Man on Ocean Street in Maroochydore. Arriving from the United Kingdom 13 years ago, she uses local flora and fauna as inspiration for her murals. Fuzeillear hopes her murals connect with the local community. Each one she completes is threaded with a theme of igniting conversations on

protecting the environment. “I paint public murals that highlight and champion our native wildlife species and the challenges they face,” she says. “Life can be stressful, busy and complicated but I aim to create public art that allows passers-by to stop, take a breath and, even just for a moment, drift away. My hope is always to leave something that will make a difference – whether that be to remind people of the fragile beauty of the world around us or just to make someone feel a little bit brighter and a little less alone.” Working with watered washes and brushes, Fuzeillear uses shadowy textures and strong highlights to bring a sense of depth and space to each piece. Her latest success includes taking out

the inaugural Fuel Your Passion contest, nudging out an impressive cast of Sunshine Coast artists and creatives. An initiative of the Eumundi Brewery, the competition was a chance to support the many artists and innovators on the Coast after a challenging two years for the creative sector. From 350 entrants, the final eight were put to a public vote, with drawing artist Dan Hannay and musician and multicultural teacher Samuela Taukave – known as Skillz FJ – announced as runners-up. As the Fuel Your Passion winner, Fuzeillear receives $10,000 towards her creative work from the Brewery’s community fund. “Far out, do I love the Sunshine Coast,” she says. “I count myself incredibly blessed to be here and to have been able to contribute to this beautiful community by painting so many murals across the Coast. “Winning the comp means I can now paint bigger and better walls and spread the message further. Fuzeillear’s murals can be found in Maroochydore, Eumundi, Landsborough, Caloundra, Kawana, Maroochydore, Buderim, Nambour and Noosa. Further afield, her works are in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and London. Visit:

A YOUTHFUL OUTLOOK The Rotary Club of Alexandra Headland is welcoming its youngest president. Mother-of-two Skye Miller has been involved with Rotary since becoming an exchange student in Germany. “I’m extremely honoured to be in this role but I am really just one spoke in the wheel,” she says. “I aim to continue (the club’s) success by being flexible and accessible to all those wishing to make a positive difference, have a focus on reviving the youth programs that have been significantly impacted by COVID over the past few years and keeping the wheel turning on the great work that this club has done year in, year out.”

FLAGGING A GREAT WAY TO PUT FAMILY FUN BACK ON COURSE With a friendly atmosphere and delightful outlook, it is no wonder Maroochy River Mini Golf is becoming a favourite day out for all ages. Since opening to the public in November 2019, the 18-hole mini golf course is an ideal place to socialise outdoors and enjoy delicious pizza from the on-site Cane Cutters Bar and Bistro. Maroochy River Golf Club general manager Charlie McGill says the course features two difficulty levels, meaning visitors can play either a relaxed or more challenging game. “You won’t find any fibreglass animals, clowns or windmills at Maroochy River Mini Golf,” Mr McGill says. “It has classy, landscaped humps and hollows, delightful water features and

pretend sand traps. Apart from the scenery, mini golf is the perfect way to spend a memorable day outside with the family. “It is not just a game but can also prove to be an exciting educational and physical experience for children.” The bistro caters for birthday parties, functions and corporate events and parties, with food options for during or after a game. “With a spectacular view to Mount Coolum overlooking the golf course, there’s no better place to be to enjoy homemade cakes, a cup of coffee, beer or a glass of wine, from our new terraced deck,” Mr McGill says. Maroochy River Mini Golf is at 374-514 David Low Way, Bli Bli, and is open seven days from 9am until late. Book and learn more at

More than 10,000 solar panels have been installed at state schools across the Sunshine Coast to help slash electricity costs and cut carbon emissions as part of the State Government’s Advancing Clean Energy Schools (ACES) program. Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt says the program is good news for schools and contributes to the renewable energy target. “ACES is making a significant contribution to the 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030, with the 200,000 solar panels on state school rooftops (state-wide)

expected to generate an average of 280MW of electricity every day,” he says. “The 10,100 panels on the Sunshine Coast alone can generate around 14,000 kilowatts of electricity every day.” Beerwah State High School has 270 solar panels installed, which will offset the costs of air-conditioning and other energy costs in a $180,000 investment. Principal Lyn McDonald says the solar panels installed on the roof of C Block and the Resource Centre will generate an average 390 kilowatts of electricity a day.

Your responsibilities in a traffic crash The Sunshine Coast has recorded a high number of traffic crashes in the past couple of months. Firstly, if you are involved in a traffic crash, ensure you are in a safe location away from traffic.

Do you need police at the scene? Since January 1, 2015, police are not required to attend every traffic crash. For police to attend a traffic crash, a person must be trapped or injured. If that is the case, call 000 and then stop and give assistance to anyone who is injured if it is safe to do so. If there is suspicion that drugs or alcohol are involved, police are needed to direct traffic, manage traffic hazards or if anyone has failed to exchange details, call Policelink on 131444. Failure to exchange details may incur

an infringement notice for the driver involved in the crash for failing to fulfil their duties. However, if a driver feels threatened by another driver to give their details at the crash and are in fear of personal safety, call police. An alarming number of hit-and-run crashes are being reported to police. A hit and run is when a vehicle involved in a crash leaves the scene without stopping. The crash may not be witnessed by anyone and it may go unsolved. If your vehicle requires towing, contact your insurer or a towing company of your choice. If you cannot arrange a tow of your vehicle and exhaust all options, call Policelink. Section 287 of the Transport Operations Regulation 2009 requires police to be notified of a reportable traffic crash within 24 hours, except in exceptional circumstances when it must be reported as soon as possible. If you are involved in a traffic crash, have exchanged details, and have none of the above circumstances, there is no need to report the crash to police. Drive safely. This column is compiled by the Sunshine Coast District Crime Prevention Unit. If you have information for police, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or, or Policelink at

Jane Stephens believes the pandemic may have sounded the death knell for the infamous Aussie ‘sickie’ as we lose valuable work and school days.

Ashley Robinson regrets some of his cheap and nasty purchases in the past, when forking out for quality might have saved him in the long run.


he Great Australian Sickie may well be dead – killed off by real diseases that have created (heaven forbid) actual sickness. ‘Chucking a sickie’ used to be considered a national institution, providing as much fodder for comedians as it created headaches for bosses. It grew from the long-standing national industrial relations gift that was paid sick leave for all non-casual employees. Favourite sickie days were when big sporting events, such as cricket Tests, were in town or were used to build a bridge of days off between two public holidays that fell close together. Sickies fell from favour as our HR laws got tougher and our society became more politically correct. What was once a larrikin act became viewed as lazy and lacking in collegiality. But while the sickie was already dying, COVID and the flu launched a one-two punch and laid it out on the canvas. The latest data shows Queensland school students will likely have at least a full week off sick this year, befallen by the flu, COVID and the usual colds and lurgies. In this pandemic age, viruses are

leaving friendship groups shredded and continuity of learning in tatters. When school is in for only 185 days this year, and the weeks abutting the holidays considered padding, that is a lot of learning days lost. Attending school 10 per cent less than previous generations is going to bite: repeated studies show continuity of school attendance is directly correlated with school and career achievement, social connection and personal resilience. But we should not get too sad about the Great Australian Sickie going the way of the dodo. Data from Roy Morgan shows more than eight million employed Aussies have 175 million days of annual leave owing – at least two weeks each – up from 150 million a year ago. Another 10 per cent have seven weeks in the can. The Great Australian Sickie may well be replaced by the Great Australian Holiday, probably all at once in summer when everyone slides into slow-mo at work anyway. Fingers crossed it isn’t replaced by the predicted Great Australian Resignation, though: such a massive payout may well sink us all.

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


have a friend who has a great reply when asked about why she bought something that mere mortals like me would find somewhat expensive. She says, “I can’t afford to buy something cheap. I haven’t enough money to keep replacing it. It has to last. It has to be great quality.” When she first said that to me, I thought of the normal poor man’s response: “It’s okay for you because you can afford it.” But as I computed what she said, it does make quite a bit of sense. At the time, I was buying socks from a store recommended by my friend’s partner. Like the proverbial bull in the china shop, I grabbed three bundles of socks, making eight pairs in total – six plain and two patterned – and gave them to the proprietor. The proprietor said that with the 15 per cent discount, that came to $108. Too embarrassed to pull out of the transaction, I reluctantly paid. But then it hit me: it was so long ago when I bought the original lot that I had forgotten how expensive they were, yet I still had most of the them. My friend was right: quality lasts. It’s like batteries. I usually baulk at buying the quality ones and find the

cheapest ones I can. But then I probably replace them that many times that they cost more than the tried-and-true brand. Wine is possibly one exception to the rule. Over the years in hospitality, I have learnt enough about wine to survive. Beer is another matter (expert), but I know enough about the grape to get me by and for what I like. It’s quite strange as I am not at all influenced by brand but a little by price and a lot by taste. I could never buy a bottle of Penfold’s Grange and drink it. I would feel guilty spending that type of money on a 750ml bottle of plonk. It would be like someone giving me a Bentley or a Mercedes to drive: onlookers and the police would assume immediately that I had stolen it. In my mind, a good wine has to have an interesting label and taste like you want it to taste, with no chemicals that wake you up in the middle of the night sweating and prepared to drink the water out of the toilet bowl to quench dryness of your tongue.

TEARS OF JOY FOR DYNAMIC DUOS Sami Muirhead reminisces about some of the most memorable couplings as audiences mark milestones on the big and small screens.


emember when Lenny and Scott were married on the soapie Neighbours and we all cried happy tears as Angry Anderson belted out the song Suddenly? I sure do. I was one of two million Aussies who watched that wedding. Twenty million watched it in the United Kingdom. The year was 1987 and I was a classic teenager from the ’80s with a bad perm and braces. I loved Rick Astley, The Bangles and Whitesnake. I remember vividly my favourite outfit: a sky-blue taffeta bubble skirt, teamed with a crop top and a big, thick elastic black belt, topped off with leg warmers. Oh ’80s fashion, you little devil! So, last week, Kylie and Jason delighted me when they reunited in Ramsay Street for its swansong episode, wrapping up the soapie after 37 years of drama in Erinsborough. For me Jason and Kylie (or their characters Charlene and Scott) were the most perfect couple on screen and off. Then, they released Especially For You in 1988 and life could not get better for me. In reality, of course, Kylie was lured by ‘bad boy’ Michael Hutchence, to slide to the wild side of rock’n’roll. Kylie left Jason

and dated the INXS lead singer for two years. Who could blame the girl, really? But ‘Lenny’ and Scott will always have a place as one of the most iconic duos on our screens. And speaking of classic duos, this year is the 30th anniversary since The Bodyguard movie was released. It has been three decades since Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner captured our hearts and then smashed them with that plot of the famous singer and the bodyguard falling in love but parting ways in the final scenes as I Will Always Love You is performed and us mere mortals melted in a pile of tears and snot in our movie chairs. Another duo I just adore is in TV series Grace and Frankie, with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in the lead roles. The comedy savours female friendship in all its glory as well as showing us that sometimes life throws curve balls and all we can do is try to make lemonade out of lemons. Here’s to our duos we love to see together on the big and little screen. Other classic pairings are Hans Solo and Princess Leia from Star Wars, Big and Carrie from Sex And The City, and Rachel and Ross from Friends. I do note, as well, that Kylie is still single. So, maybe she and Jason will end up growing old together after all.

FIND DISABILITY SUPPORT NOW AND FOR THE FUTURE IN ONE PLACE Here’s a sobering fact: in regional Queensland, people living with a disability and their carers struggle to find the same resources as those who live in larger cities. Why? Often, it’s down to not knowing what local services and support is available to them, leaving them going without or unnecessarily travelling long distances to metropolitan areas. But the good news is that there’s often more resources available to them than they realise. They just have to know where to look. Regional Disability Expos (RDE) are unique events aimed at bringing the disability community together to celebrate life and age, and to empower, learn and share, as well as experience the latest technologies through a large variety of exhibitors under the one roof. As a member of the community in relatively good health, you may say to yourself: “Why would I want to attend a disability expo? I’m not disabled, and neither are any of my loved ones.” But have you thought about those around you who have hidden disabilities such as mental health, or are in early stages of their conditions and are slowly losing


mobility, hearing or sight, for example. Disability can and does affect people of all ages. Whether you require a hearing aid to assist with hearing your loved ones or a walking stick or scooter to be mobile, a physiotherapist to keep you moving or something more, any number of exhibitors can assist you with living life to its fullest. Isn’t that what living on the Sunshine Coast is all about? As Miriam, an RDE attendee, says, “Well done to the organisers and companies that attended the expo. We gained more information and insight in an hour as what we have over the past year. Excellent job.” Regardless of your ties to disability, head along to this year’s RDE at the Caloundra Indoor Stadium in North St Golden Beach.

Suncare support coordinator and NDIS team leader Lani is all about helping customers live a life of choice. Part of Suncare’s NDIS team, Lani has worked in mental health and disability services for more than nine years and says it is her privilege to assist each individual she works with to find the support that is right for them. “Life is messy and my job is to find solutions that overcome the hurdles people face,” she says. “Our job at Suncare is to help build confidence, capacity and independence and help our customers live the life they love.” Lani is well qualified, holding a Bachelor of Psychology and Master of Counselling specialising in mental health. Her working experience includes direct support, case management and crisis counselling for children, youths and adults living with a disability and complex mental health concerns. Meet the Suncare Community Services NDIS Team at the Regional Disability Expo Sunshine Coast at the Caloundra Indoor Stadium in North Street, Golden Beach, on Thursday, September 8, from 9am to 4pm.

The Regional Disability Expo Sunshine Coast is for people with disabilities, family members, carers and friends. It is a truly unique event aimed at bringing the disability community together to provide information on support, products and services for people with disabilities. As Sunshine Coast locals, Suncare’s NDIS team has its finger on the pulse of available local support. The team is dedicated to helping people navigate and understand the NDIS so they can achieve the best possible outcomes.

COLOUR COMBO The earthy tones of deep greens, such as olive or moss, will pop beautifully against the softness of blush or rose colourings. This confident colour match oozes elegance.

Statement cushions are a fun way to inject personality into your home. The textural bouclé base sea-pine colour of the Parnell soutache cushion creates warmth and a unique, vintage feel. Handmade soutache hearts and lines showcase high-quality craftsmanship, while playful tassels add interesting details. It’s from Coast Store, Cotton Tree.

Favouring a peaceful and calming vibe, green earthy tones continue to be a strong theme through 2022, interiors expert Becca Stern says. Ms Stern, who is the co-founder and creative director at colourful homewares brand Mustard Made, says olive, sage, eucalyptus and mint hues are proving popular in home styling. “While we’ve spent so much more time in our homes over the last few years inspiring the trend towards calm and comfort, we’re also yearning for the wholesome simplicity of being in nature, especially green environments,” she says. “We’ll see this translate into natural greens being used as the foundation of many interior colour palettes. Green will essentially become the neutral that anchors the design and styling of a space.” Whether it’s kitchen cabinetry, a new colour on your walls, revamping your soft furnishings or investing in a new statement piece, the calming, soothing qualities invoked by introducing green tones into your home will bring a sense of peace, as well as a very on-trend look, she adds. Becca’s top tip for on-point greens? “To really lean into the organic, earthy vibe, layer multiple green tones to create a textured look and depth of colour that is both sophisticated and serene.”

FAB FLOORING Investing in your floors? Make a statement with these tips on the latest styles.

PRODUCT ALERT: Hybrid Vinyl, laminate and hybrid flooring all offer the look of genuine timber but without the extra hassle and expense. The expert team at Choices Flooring says that hybrid, in particular, is fast becoming a high-demand floor covering option. So what is it? Hybrid is a fusion of two of the existing and popular flooring options. It has the appearance of vinyl with the durability and strength of laminate – all available in variety of designs and finishes. The result is a resilient floor covering that is stylish, durable and fully water-resistant. At the same time, it does not compromise on that all-important underfoot comfort.

The ’80s are back, baby – thankfully, with a little subtlety and style. Brown tones are once again trending and the ideal place to explore the look is in your flooring. Brown flooring brings warmth and a nostalgic homely feel into a space. Tip: You can modernise the look by choosing a contemporary flooring style such as a vinyl in herringbone.

The ultimate neutral, grey is fast-becoming a popular colour choice in home flooring. For a more luxurious, traditional look, carpet is a wise option. If you are hoping to make a statement, then a grey wood-look product is the answer.

Pretty as a picture Carpet Court ambassador and star of Channel Nine’s The Block, Darren Palmer says bold and beautiful printed rugs are a sure-fire way to get your room noticed, and they work particularly well in the bedroom. “Though it can be intimidating working with bold colours and striking prints, they bring a ‘wow’ factor to any room, especially when executed well,” he says. “Most people assume that it takes confidence to use bold prints. But the truth is, you can get your showstopper moment without having to devote a whole wall or sofa to the cause. Sometimes less is best, and you can create a bold moment with a rug.”

POOL READY Warmer weather – and the desire to entertain outdoors – will be upon us again in no time. Stay ahead of the game by investing your time in pool maintenance now. You’ll thank us come spring.

TO-DO LIST The Swimming Pool and Spa Association Australia recommends the following schedule for winter maintenance. • Check the chlorine and pH levels every two weeks. • Empty the skimmer basket when full. • Occasionally check the water level is half

way up the skimmer box opening. • Occasionally check the pressure gauge on the filter is not indicating backwash. • Turn the pool lights on for at least 30 minutes a week. This is to help prevent build-up of moisture within the light and wiring.

GET THE LOOK Thinking about updating your pool or patio furniture? Before you hit the shops, it’s a good idea to know what furniture material will not only suit your taste, but also your home’s environment. • Aluminium – rust-proof • Resin – great in weather • Kwila timber – resistant to cracks and splitting • Teak – durable • Wicker – the synthetic variety is longer lasting.

The Kirra grey sun lounge was made for lazy days. It features an aluminium frame with tailored upholstery. It’s from Domayne.

tip Regularly check your pool gate to ensure it is closing correctly. Check hinges for rust or breakages, and fix any issues immediately.

STAYCATION SEASON A getaway right here at home is the perfect stop-gap for avid travellers awaiting their next big adventure. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.


he world is open, and if like us you have been anticipating the opportunity to once again spread your wings, chances are you have already marked the calendar and booked your next big holiday. In the meantime, why not feed that travel bug with a small taste of what is to come? One thing the pandemic has given us is a renewed interest in exploring and enjoying the experiences within our own backyard. It is the perfect stop-gap for the travel-hungry and an opportunity to rediscover tourism hotspots, unearth new places and support local businesses. The best part? It won’t impact heavily on the budget for any larger trips you have planned. Whether it is adventure you seek or perhaps a fun foodie experience, the Sunshine Coast has plenty of offer. On a recent Friday, keen for a break

from the rush of everyday life, we drove the short distance to Maroochydore in the hope of enjoying a relaxed weekend. We based ourselves at the newly opened Holiday Inn Express & Suites hotel, which is Australia’s first for the brand. Convenient and comfortable, it is perched in the heart of the new CBD. A short drive to local beaches, the hotel’s location is also close to some of the region’s best restaurants and nightlife precincts, making it a great base for an evening out. The new-build property features a combined suite/apartment style offering, along with regular hotel rooms. Following a smooth check-in process, we began the weekend by drinking in the sunset from the pool rooftop terrace before taking a short walk to our dinner location. In the not-too-distant future, the emerging neighbourhood will boast an


array of foodie hotspots, exclusive retail stores, beautiful community parkland spaces and new waterways. Sunshine Coast restaurant baron Tony Kelly has ensured he is ahead of the game by securing his place in the CBD with two locations – the sophisticated Europeaninspired Market Bistro and Asian street food restaurant Giddy Geisha – a great place to begin our getaway. Throw in an early morning dip at the beach the next day, followed by a fun paddle through the Sunshine Plaza’s waterways (you can hire a paddle boat from the pontoon for as little as $8 per person), and our weekend left us refreshed, and with a renewed appreciation for this beautiful region we call home. STAYING THERE The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Sunshine Coast features 181 guest rooms and suites featuring study nooks, wifi, premium bedding and the brand’s signature Express Recharge concept, which includes a pillow menu, black-out blinds and a walk-in power shower. Take advantage of the opening offer, which includes up to 20 per cent off rates. Visit en/maroochydore/mcysc/hoteldetail.

EATING THERE There are so many fab foodie finds in Maroochydore and surrounds. Breakfast – The Nines Emporium: Located at Home Co. Sunshine Coast on Maroochydore Road, you need to be quick to secure a table at this local haunt. Inspired by the unique coastal culture, and the sophisticated food scene of Melbourne, The Nines creates fun food for all ages. Our tip? Try the pancakes! Down time – Wine & Nine: Sister to The Nines, this urban-vibe bar and café overlooks Cornmeal Creek at Sunshine Plaza. For a late brunch, we couldn’t go past the apple pie French toast with poached apple and salted caramel. Dinner – Giddy Geisha: It is easy to understand why people line the street to score a seat here. Located in Market Lane, the contemporary Asian street-food restaurant has a distinct urban grunge vibe. The team dish up top-notch food. No expense has been spared when it comes to quality ingredients. We recommend sharing a variety of plates to enjoy the entire experience. The yuzu honey chicken and coconut beef spring rolls are a must. PLAYING THERE Pack a beach bag and spend a morning on the soft white sand of Maroochydore Beach, or take a stroll through Cotton Tree’s parklands. The popular Cotton Tree Markets along King Street operate every Sunday morning and feature live music, eats, artisans and local designers. For a family adventure, Sunshine Plaza has fun options including Timezone, BCC Cinemas and Rush Adventure. If boutique shopping is more your style, head to Mooloolaba Esplanade or The Wharf, Mooloolaba where you will find an array of locally-owned stores Giddybeautiful Geisha coastal-inspired wear. selling

STYLISH LADY MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A ROCK STAR Cruising is back and SunCity Travel expert Richelle Reeves shares her experience with the luxe Valiant Lady by Virgin Voyages. When first stepping foot on-board Valiant Lady everything I knew about traditional cruising was forgotten. With the initial greeting by an exuberant crew, the scene was set and I knew this cruise would certainly deliver on fun. This adult’s only cruise brought the perfect party vibe from day one. The cruise far exceeded my expectations – starting with the incredible food. In each modern, never-before-seen dining space, you can choose from countless meal options, which are innovative, sustainable and most importantly, delicious. Gone are the days of dinner in the main dining room. Virgin has reimagined the concept of on-board dining, offering countless cuisines across numerous restaurants, without a surcharge. Every restaurant has something special, from secret menus to drinking games. You will be thoroughly enthralled and completely satisfied when the last decadent mouthful is consumed. Similarly, the entertainment on-board

is fresh, interactive and risqué. Around every bend you will be surprised and delighted, at times left breathless as you watch death-defying acts. Fear not the health-conscious souls who avoid cruising, Valiant Lady promotes health and wellbeing with the most incredible fitness spaces and a dreamy spa featuring mud room and ice baths. Splashes of red bring this ship to life. You will love the red hammock found in every sea terrace and suite. A definite nod to Richard Branson’s inner child – cruising with Virgin Voyages is for the young at heart who want to experience fun at sea. Chat with Richelle @ SunCity, Nat @ Noosa or Jacinta @ Buderim Helloworld to talk about their cruise experience.

The South Island of New Zealand is a wonderful holiday destination with spectacular scenery and a large variety of activities to keep the avid traveller happy. Travel Associates owner Therese Playford says while living in Christchurch she discovered the natural beauty of the South Island. She says travellers should plan ahead to get the most out of their time in the region. “I would recommend spending a few days in Christchurch to explore the city, roam through the Botanic Gardens and see the street art that tells the stories of the 2011 earthquake. Visit the French village of Akaroa or plan a day to Hanmer Springs to enjoy the hot pools, with a stop at a winery or two on the way.” Travelling across the Southern Alps from Christchurch to the west coast is also a must. “Whether it is on the famous TranzAlpine train journey, by coach or self-drive, enjoy the changing scenery from the Canterbury Plains to the beautiful mountains as you make your way across Arthur’s Pass. “Personally, I love the glacier region of the west coast,” she adds. “Fox and Franz Josef glaciers are beautiful places to visit. It is incredible

Milford Sound that we can experience glaciers that flow down to sea level and are so easily accessible.” Of course, any visit to the South Island must include Queenstown. The town itself benefits from a spectacular location surrounded by mountain peaks and Lake Wakatipu. “Skiing, fishing, walking, mountain biking and golf are all worldclass and easily accessible from your base in Queenstown,” Ms Playford says. “Add in the famous Central Otago vineyards and you have a perfect holiday destination for everyone.” The 13-day Spectacular South Island tour also includes a cruise on the Milford Sound and a visit to historic town of Dunedin. It departs on November 13. For more information, visit hostedholidays. or contact Travel Associates.

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)




With the sun and Venus visiting your sign, it’s time for the larger-than-life Leo to let your hair down and indulge your senses. Be inspired by movie star Mae West (born on August 17, 1893): ‘Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.’

You won’t solve problems if you’re procrastinating. Many Virgos will be full of vigour this week, as you analyse and mobilise. With clever Mercury (your patron planet) connecting with Uranus, it’s also a good time to redefine the persona you are presenting to the world.

Vivacious Venus trines generous Jupiter, which boosts your natural Libran charisma. But it also amps up your preoccupation with perfection. Try to focus on the evolving journey, rather than the final destination.

There may be some conflict between domestic responsibilities and professional expectations. You’re keen to plunge into a personal project, but make sure you do your homework first and don’t promise more than you can actually deliver.





Relationships will be challenging, as people find it difficult to express themselves. Be inspired by Leo actress Halle Berry: ‘Don’t take yourself too seriously. Know when to laugh at yourself and find a way to laugh at obstacles that inevitably present themselves.’

Your ruler Saturn (planet of limitations and patience) starts the week opposing the sun, so it’s time for active and ambitious Capricorns to pace themselves, as some plans backfire and confidence levels are lower than usual.

The stars amp up your need for freedom and adventures. But don’t feel you have to tackle a current problem on your own. There are plenty of people around who are happy to help. And don’t let current restrictions stop you from taking on challenges in creative ways.

It’s time to retreat as Saturn activates your seclusion zones. Enjoy solo activities like meditation or yoga. What others say won’t necessarily be what they mean, so make sure you read between the lines to uncover what’s really going on.

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21) This week, your ruler, Mercury, forms a positive aspect with wildly adventurous Uranus. It’s a good time to exercise your brain cells via study, debate, teaching, reading, writing, public speaking and generally expanding your mind in all sorts of exciting new directions.



TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21) Proactive Mars is moving through your sign (until Saturday) and Venus (your patron planet) forms a fabulous aspect with Jupiter. Motivation, charm and exploration will really take you places, as you call in a few old favours and make some dynamic new decisions.

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20) Feisty Aries folk need to have an ambitious project to channel all their fiery energy into. As original celebrity chef and birthday great Julia Child declared, ‘Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.’.

AUSTRALIAN REAL ESTATE – SAME, SAME, BUT DIFFERENT The Sunshine Coast has its own micro market with a unique climate of supply and demand. WORDS: Gail Forrer.


he impact of interest rate rises will not have the effect on the typical owner-occupier borrower and property prices that many headlines suggest, especially on the Sunshine Coast, says Direct Collective CEO and data specialist Mal Cayley. His predictions are based on a number of reasons including financial capacity in the property market. “Seventy per cent of all mortgages are held by the top 40 per cent of income earners,” he says. “That means those with loans can afford them. “It’s also prudent to note that those with long-term loans have been paying down their homes at historically low rates and are well ahead on payments, and those who have applied for a loan in recent years can afford rates to rise more than two per cent before there is any real impact and the interest rates are still within those limits. In terms of impact on property prices, he says Australian does not have just one property market. “Based on the local drivers of economy, demand and supply, Australia

“Are the economic futures suggesting the worst calamity we have seen in 70 years? “Isn’t an increasing inflation rate a picture of an expanding economy not contracting? You can’t have both, what is it? I would suggest neither.” Finally, he says “Medians may fall, that doesn’t mean house prices have. “Australia wide I see prices slowly coming back a few per cent and then flat for a very long period of time. “As for the rest of the Sunshine Coast market, I suggest some price growth to come for many years.

PRICING OUTLOOK has over 2,000 micro markets.” “Not all markets perform the same and to suggest otherwise is dangerous.” Mr Cayley explains that reporting ‘medians’ the middle numbers, when markets are busy and prices rising, comes from more activity in the top end of the market, thus lifting medians. However, when markets are normal, there is a lot more activity in the bottom 2/3 of the

market, thus lowering medians. “It doesn’t mean prices have fallen to have a median change,” he says. Thirdly, he questions how the competing headlines of an accommodation crisis (increasing homelessness and a rental crisis), which screams ‘undersupply’ can have the same mediums, saying property prices will crash.

“Most sellers are subsequent buyers and a fast moving market makes selling and buying stressful. Most people hold property long-term and fluctuations in the market year-to-year often make very little difference to overall performance over the hold period. For now, we are seeing very little evidence that the market will see a sharp correction in pricing. – Chief Economist Ray White Economist Nerida Conisbee – August 4, 2022.

Well, the WSL is now moving on to Tahiti so if ever there was going to be a chance for Mr Slater to get back in the mix this will be it. As for the local scene, it looks like there will be a few waves around so get amongst it and be calm in the water. Oh, and there are cheap flights to Canada should anybody want to come snow boarding with me!
