From the editor

Whether you are a born-and-bred Queenslander or a more recent arrival, Queensland Day is a time to revel in all that is special about our Sunshine State.

The day marks the official separation of Queensland from NSW in 1859 – a significant milestone in the state’s journey towards autonomy.

It’s an occasion for all Queenslanders to come together to unite and celebrate their shared heritage, diversity and achievements.

This week, journalist Shirley Sinclair catches up with passionate Queenslander and rugby league legend Billy Moore about his incredible career and the story behind that famous “Queenslander!” catchcry. It’s a great read.

Also in this edition, we have a whopping eight pages of health and wellness advice. Plus, you will love our My Style feature, full of gorgeous winter fashion.

As always, we bring you right up to date with all the latest news and what’s on across the Coast.

Have a great week and happy Queensland Day!

Research shows that parents and grandparents are supporting their families in a myriad ways during this cost-of-living crisis.

Baby boomers are often blamed for today’s inflated house prices.

But they’re the unsung heroes of today’s cost-of-living crisis –helping their offspring bear the cost of childcare, clothes and essentials, new Compare the Market research shows.

Almost three-quarters of Australian grandparents surveyed said they had been supporting their family financially, with 31 per cent gifting money and providing childcare for free.

Some other top ways they care for their kids and grandkids is by:

• purchasing clothes, toys and essentials (31 per cent)

• cooking for them (20 per cent)

• lending money (13 per cent)

• contributing to household bills (nine per cent)

• helping with property purchases (nine per cent).

The data also showed that seven per cent contributed towards the cost of school and daycare, and a further seven per cent had helped their kids or grandchildren buy a car.

Only a quarter of grandparents said they hadn’t been helping their family with living costs.

Compare the Market’s economic director David Koch says this is living proof that grandparents are the unsung heroes of our generation.

“Baby boomers have been getting a bad rap in the media for aiding inflation

and spending up big,” Mr Koch says. “But in reality, 75 per cent of grandparents are helping ease the cost-of-living crisis and are chipping in to help their kids and grandkids in some way.

“Times are tough and many Australian households are really struggling right now, especially with the increased cost of housing, food and fuel.”

Compare the Market’s data follows a recent report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, which found childcare fees rose by 22.8 per cent between 2018 and 2022, compared with an average of 6.2 per cent for other developed nations.

“The cost of daycare has absolutely exploded out of the water. So, if a family member can provide care for free or even at a reduced rate, it really does go a long way,” Mr Koch says.

“Childcare costs can vary from $70 to $200 per day in and around Australia.

“Let’s assume the cost of daycare is $150 per day.

“If the ‘grandies’ are providing free care once a week for 48 weeks of the year – that could be $7200 back in your pocket.

“It could be even more for multiple children.

“For some people, it might mean being able to go on a weekend getaway with the family.

“For others, it might mean being able to keep on top of all their bills without going into debt.

“In our family, Libby looks after our two toddler grandchildren on separate days to help ease the cost of childcare.

“I worked out childcare is more expensive than the costs of a Year 12 student at a private school. I know there are government subsidies but the cost is enormous when you consider you’re paying after tax dollars.”


Domestic, sexual and family violence frontline services in Queensland will be bolstered by $118 million in additional funding over the next four years.

The state government will provide up to $36 million directly to service providers, with the remaining funding to be used to support the sector in implementing initiatives that address a growing issue in the Sunshine State.

A recent crime report showed breach of domestic violence orders had increased in Queensland by 255.2 per cent over a nine-year period since 2013-2014.

More recently, breach of domestic violence orders have risen by 27.3 per cent from 2021-22 to 2022-2023.

Total funding since 2015 to combat domestic, sexual and family violence and improve women’s safety in Queensland is now $1.9 billion.

Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath says frontline services are under immense pressure following an alarming increase in reported rates of domestic and family violence.

“Our overriding goal is to end all forms of domestic and family violence and protect all Queenslanders,” she says.”

Police deal with about 140,000 calls for domestic and family violence service in Queensland every year and that’s tracking towards 190,000 in 2024. – AAP.

They found that those who consumed vegetables with high levels of red and yellow pigments had a healthy yellow glow compared with those who did not. This is due to a process called carotenoid colourisation.

League legend and Sunshine Coast businessman Billy Moore remains a proud champion of all things Queensland. WORDS: Shirley Sinclair.

He grew up only 100m on the Queensland side of the border, but NSW never stood a chance of claiming Billy Moore as its own.

A giant of Australian rugby league, Moore comes from a staunchly proud Queensland family from Wallangarra –the southernmost town on the Southern Downs and Granite Belt, where an enormous ‘Queenslander’ sign he inspired was erected in 2019.

The historic Wallangarra Railway Station is split down the centre, with half in each state, overlooking the neighbouring town of Jennings, NSW.

That unusual position, Moore acknowledges, created a special mindset for residents.

“My house, that my cousins now own, is about 100m – if that – from that

station,” he says on the eve of Queensland Day: June 6.

“Because you are so close to the border, it’s a unique thing. You had this real palpable ‘us and them’.

“They’re different. They had Jennings Primary School. We had Wallangarra Primary School. They had Jennings Hotel that served Tooheys New. We had Wallangarra Hotel that served XXXX.

“And you never mixed, except New Year’s Eve – because you got two New Year’s Eves. With daylight saving, I’d walk 100m and I’d change time zones.

“That’s where the ‘Queenslander’ percolated away”.

So, despite being born in Tenterfield’s hospital (it’s closer to Wallangarra than the one in Stanthorpe), switching his junior football to the Tenterfield Tigers (after the Wallangarra Bulls club folded)

and being selected to represent New South Wales in Under-17s, Moore was a passionate Queenslander through and through. Importantly, he played his first senior game as a 15-year-old for Inglewood-Milmerran (when older brother Robert’s Under-18s team was short on numbers against Warwick), serendipitously qualifying him for Maroon State of Origin selection.

“Origin unified everyone from Coolangatta to Cape York. It’s the day every Queenslander stops and pays attention”

But the motivational speaker and media commentator admits his trademark war cry will live on long after memories of his playing days fade.

Anyone who ‘bleeds Maroon’ remembers watching vision of Moore heading down the players’ tunnel, screaming “Queenslander!”, before the second half of the 1995 State of Origin Game 1 in Sydney.

Queensland was never meant to win that game 2-0, let alone complete the Series with a 3-zip whitewash.

“Pre-game, we had nine rookies. It was ‘Fatty’ (Paul) Vautin’s first game coaching senior rugby league,” Moore recalls easily.

“He took over the job because Wayne Bennett pulled out. Super League players couldn’t play.

“We had only one Australian player, Dale Shearer, but he hadn’t played for five

years for Australia. They had 12 current internationals. So, we were the longest odds ever to win a game (that Series).

“Just before the game, like always, everyone leaves the room and there’s only the players left. You have that moment when you’re looking around the room at each other and you’re just about to go out and do battle.

“Then the great Gary Larson says to me, ‘Billy, Billy. Tell them what Peter Jackson told you’.”

What happened next has become part of Maroon folklore.

“What ‘Queenslander’ means is what the late great Peter Jackson taught me,” Moore says.

“I went to Origin to play my first game just after my 21st birthday. He was my first roomie.

“What you saw coming down the tunnel is Peter Jackson personified. He was one of the most passionate Queenslanders that you’d ever see.

“He said, ‘Queenslander!’, when you scream it, means three things: help your mates, find a solution and no excuses.

“There is no such thing as a glorious loss for a Queenslander. You’re putting lipstick on a pig.

“So, I was in the sheds and Gary says, ‘Tell the story’. I told them and pumped everyone up and we all were screaming ‘Queenslander!’.

“Then we’ve turned and walked down the ramp and the other 16 shut up.”

Moore appeared on the live camera feed, roaring the chant like a man possessed.

“That was the first time they’d ever put a camera in the tunnel in any sport in Australia,” he remembers.

“No one knew the camera was there. It was almost like it was meant to be.”

Players had used “Queenslander!” as a rallying cry on the field for over half a decade, Moore says.

The Maroons would always lift.

NSW players hated the battle cry, but never really understood the Queenslanders’ reaction.

“That came out in the ’89 Series. That’s where it started,” Moore adds.

“In NSW at Sydney Football Stadium, Queensland had a horrendous number of injuries in the first half.

“We came in leading at half-time, but 13 (on the field) can’t beat 17 (with a full bench), especially in Origin.

“But we did. And the way we did it is that at half-time, the ‘Queenslander’ call was conjured up.”

Moore, the youngest of four boys, likens Queenslanders’ mission to win State of Origin each year, against all odds, as a little brother trying to outdo the seemingly bigger, stronger, older sibling.

“What little brother wants to do is beat big brother. Nothing else,” he says matter-of-factly.

“Big brothers have got other things on their plates. They still want to beat little

brother, but they’ve got other things to do and other things to worry about.

“Origin was our rite of passage (as a state). That was our chance to say to everybody and especially to ourselves and to our adversaries: ‘Hey, we’ve got you. We’re on the same dancefloor and we’re out-dancing you’.

“Origin unified everybody from Coolangatta to Cape York. It’s the day that every Queenslander stops and pays attention – no matter who they are or where they’re from and what they represent.”

After retiring from professional rugby league at the age of 28, when the North Sydney Bears dissolved, the married father of two turned to hospitality, and continues to have a half-share in Augello’s, Mooloolaba. He still relishes watching the game and has attended every Origin match for about 25 years.

“I remember the first State of Origin with Arthur Beetson taking the field. I would have been eight years old,” Moore enthuses.

“I’ve never seen my dad more emotional or prouder.

“Arthur Beetson – that was the first and only game he played for Queensland.

“He was the first Indigenous captain for Australia in any sport. And he’s an Immortal, from Roma.

“I remember saying to my mum and dad that night that I was going to play Origin. They said, ‘Oh yeah, of course you will, son. No worries’.

“From that moment on, I was obviously a mad Queenslander.”

Moore intended being in the thick of ‘enemy territory’ for the June 5 clash, decked out in maroon and yelling his heart out for Queensland, before flying home to the Sunshine Coast today.

“You never count your chickens before they hatch,” he says.

“But I’m hoping to have a sore head (from celebrating) and what better way to welcome Queensland Day than Queensland one up in an Origin Series, having beat NSW on their home turf.”


Billy Moore’s 17 caps for Queensland in State of Origin from 1992-1997 are among his finest moments in a career in which he was:

• awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 for his contribution to Australia’s international standing in rugby league

• named in the North Sydney Bears’ Team of the Century in 2006 after playing 211 games from 1989-99

• gained three Australian caps, including being part of the 1995 Rugby League World Cup-winning side in England.

June 6 is commemorated each year as Queensland Day.

The date is significant as a celebration of Queensland’s ‘birthday’ – the day that our state officially separated from New South Wales as an independent colony in 1859. If ever we needed to show our allegiance, it’s today (though, surprisingly, the Governor in Council only named maroon as the official Queensland colour on November 13, 2003).

The 2024 Ampol State of Origin Series continues with Game 2 on June 26 at the MCG in Melbourne and Game 3 on July 17 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

Sunshine Coast Council gives green light to foreshore revitalisation.

Mooloolaba’s foreshore revitalisation will proceed after being given the green light by Sunshine Coast Council.

Construction will begin next year on Stage 2 of the transformation, which will include more beachfront parkland, new accessible pathways and viewing deck,

improved access to the beach and foreshore, enhanced community spaces, modern public amenities and a terraced seawall.

Since 2012, the community has been routinely engaged on a range of Mooloolaba projects.

Stage 2 follows on from the completion of the multi-award-winning

first stage the Northern Parklands, with early works anticipated to start from February next year.

The Mooloolaba Business Activation Group and Mooloolaba Stakeholder Interest Group have liaised closing with the project team, providing an opportunity to unpack the design and work with the business community in developing a draft Business Activation Plan.

An update on the project was tabled at the May 30 council meeting.

This included providing an update on the community engagement history, key project drivers and the design and delivery of the project, specifically around the Stage 2 Central Meeting Place and Southern Seawall.

The new council accepted the recommendations in the report and approved the design, the construction timing for Stage 2 and the finalisation of the Draft Business Activation Plan to begin implementation within the 2024-25 financial year.

This means the transformational project will now progress in line with the Master Plan and the 2022 Central Meeting Place, which includes the communitysupported ‘blue’ concept for the current Loo with a View.

Deputy Mayor Maria Suarez says the

report is an outcome from the Ordinary Meeting in January 2024, which requested a further project update be presented to the new council prior to a construction tender being awarded.

“I’m pleased we’ve provided some extra time for the business community to prepare for this challenging project, which I’m certain will ensure Mooloolaba remains a key tourism drawcard for the Sunshine Coast,” Cr Suarez says.

“We are focused on ensuring our business community is supported by council and approving the finalisation of the Business Activation Plan is vital – a plan that’s been developed with valuable input from the Business Activation Group.

“This plan will help businesses to continue to attract locals and visitors before, during and after Stage 2’s construction, as well as share the future vision for this regionally significant project.

“We have been listening through these forums and it is apparent that there will never be absolute consensus about this project, but it is vitally important to present the facts and give our businesses and community certainty about when this project will occur.”

New farmstay to provide a retreat for widows. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

From her property at Coolabine, Suzanne Gomes is working through her own grief to offer a space for others impacted by widowhood.

After losing Robert, her husband of 20 years, to leukaemia in 2019, Ms Gomes was left with a profound series of emotions and was unsure where to turn. So, she decided the best way for her to process her grief was to put pen to paper. What resulted was her book, Wife to Widow

Now five years since her husband’s death, Ms Gomes is preparing to fulfil a dream they shared when they first bought their 14-hectare property, not far from Kenilworth. Originally, the couple wanted to create a farmstay, or a place for other families impacted by leukaemia.

Since Robert’s death, Ms Gomes has been hard at work making this dream a reality, with Coolabine Retreat set to open later this year. She has also decided to host her first Beyond the Widow retreat in August – something she hopes will further help people on their journey after the loss of a spouse.

“When Covid hit, I was living by myself at the property and my grief took a couple

of notches up,” Ms Gomes says.

“What got me through most days was when I started to write the book.

“It was when I went to the publishing company, they said I should do more than just the book. That’s when in my head I thought about doing retreats.”

Ms Gomes says she struggled to find a group or space that was tailored solely for widows, in the time after Robert’s passing.

“When I was looking for a group or somewhere to go, there was lots around healing and growth and mindfulness but I couldn’t find anything that was specifically put in place just for widows. I thought maybe this was my next step.”

As a corporate executive for 25 years, Ms Gomes sort out the tools to help herself with her grief, in the hope she could then share those with others via the retreat.

“Any type of grief is a very lonely place,” she says. “(I want to) offer a safe place that is very nurturing and give them a bunch of tools and hopefully a broader community that they can leverage off to continue through their grief. Grief doesn’t end. There are still tears and pain, but I can show that you can live side by side with grief.”

A boutique owner backs personal shopping. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

The woman behind a popular Sunshine Coast fashion boutique is encouraging the community to support local business after making the difficult decision to close one of her stores.

Michele O’Flanagan has closed Onyx

Poppy Boutique at Sippy Downs. She says this is due to a variety of factors, including a shift to focus on her work/life balance and the continued challenges of competing with the convenience of online shopping. Ms O’Flanagan says that after a health scare last year, she decided it was better

to focus her energy into one store rather than two.

“My lease was due for renewal next month. I decided the rent increase would put more stress on performance for myself and staff,” she says.

“I reflected on my success over the past 4.5 years. I decided I needed more work/life balance to give myself time to reflect on health as it is wealth.

“Always being in fight mode to succeed over the hurdles we have all challenged takes its toll. I felt with better home/work balance, I can give my client base 110 per cent of my energy and passion in store.

“So, making smart business moves was important to me – reducing to one store –(and) being proud of the success. I have loved being in the local Chancellor Village area serving the community.”

With the focus on her Buderim store, Ms O’Flanagan is hoping residents will continue to shop locally.

“In retail, ladies buy online. They purchase at the barely worn markets. This puts pressure on boutiques owners as they can buy online rather than in store.

A main road to the Blackall Range will be cut off while maintenance is carried out on a key bridge.

People who regularly use the bridge across Paynter Creek on PalmwoodsMontville Road – on the western outskirts of Palmwoods – are being advised of changed traffic conditions. The works, to start in mid-to-late June, will take up to six weeks to complete and involve the bridge’s closure for up to five days.

The detour using Hunchy Road, Blackbutt Road and Old Bowling Green Road will be signed, with traffic management in place. For the remainder of works, local traffic will be able to cross the bridge using one-lane shuttle flow. The works will replace structural timber components, add new steel piles, and include resurfacing and line marking to provide a safer and smoother surface.

“The Paynter Creek bridge is a small but essential piece of infrastructure on the Palmwoods-Montville Road: a key hinterland route,” TMR regional director for the North Coast Scott Whitaker says.

“Road safety is our region’s top priority and our maintenance crews work tirelessly to monitor the condition of our roads and structures. I thank the community and road users for their patience while TMR delivers this crucial maintenance work.”

Head coach Tim Hamill has congratulated his players on their selection.

“It’s an extremely exciting time for the players selected to represent the Australian Men’s Water Polo Team in Paris,” he says.

“Over the last three years, the entire squad has been working very hard and I certainly saw a sense of relief from many of the players post-selection.

“It’s the biggest thing that you can do as a water polo player in the world, and as a country we know how celebrated our Olympians are.


A Coast water polo player is part of our Olympic team heading to Paris.

The Sunshine Coast’s final Olympic debutant has been named ahead of the Paris Games in July.

Former St Andrew’s Anglican College student Nic Porter will be part of the Australian men’s water polo team, known as the Sharks.

The 13-man squad is made up of 10

debutants and so far brings the Australian Olympic Team size to 100.

Porter is a successful goalkeeper who began playing the sport in Year 4.

He represented his school, before going on to wear caps for Queensland and Australia.

He has also played for teams in America and Europe.

“It’s a really exciting time and I can’t wait until the first whistle against Spain on July 28.

“What you’ll see from the Aussie Sharks in Paris is that we’re an extremely enthusiastic and motivated group and we don’t fear any opponent.

I’m excited to see how we all perform on the world stage and in the big dance in two months’ time.”

The men’s water polo competition is a 12-team tournament and will take place at the Paris Aquatic Centre and the Paris La Defense Arena from July 28 to August 11. Australia has been drawn in Group B against Tokyo Olympics champion Serbia, bronze medallist Hungary, Japan, Spain and host France.


Five up-and-coming local stars of women’s AFL have been selected to play in the 2024 Queensland Under-18s team.

Maroochydore players Molly Ferguson, Raffi Baviello, Kaiya Hides, Poppy Tindal and Lilly Baker have been named in the Queensland Girls Under-18 Squad that will take part in the 2024 Marsh AFL National Championships.

The five athletes, who are also part of the Brisbane Lions Academy, join other players from Cairns, Townsville, the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Wide Bay region as part of the squad.

AFL Queensland state talent manager Mark Browning says this year’s team is brimming with talent.

“The Queensland Under-18 Girls Squad is stacked with talent, who have been developed through our AFL Queensland pathways,” Browning says.

“The junior and senior clubs and AFL Academies have all played a part in developing these players and should be congratulated.”

The championships will feature six teams, including Queensland, South Australia, Victoria Country, Victoria Metro, Western Australia and the Allies – which will comprise players from New South Wales, ACT, Northern Territory and Tasmania.

Jenny Broderick, Division 1


I’m Jenny Broderick and am pleased to introduce myself.

I’m passionate about our community and committed to listening, engaging and communicating. I put myself forward for election as I want a fresh, relevant Sunshine Coast Council that serves with transparency, authenticity and availability.

I’m looking forward to working with residents to make our community even better.

Division 1 project updates – I’m happy to share that two new shaded picnic settings have been installed at Settlement Park, Beerwah and that works have started on upgrading the perimeter fence at Pioneer Park, Landsborough. We are also investigating potential upgrades to the Beerwah stormwater infrastructure improvements from Tudor Court to Arcadia Drive.

Landsborough Museum Street Festival –

On May 18, I was thrilled to attend the centenary celebration for the Landsborough Museum and the Landsborough Schools of Arts. It was lovely to see so many people enjoying the day and making new memories, while reliving old memories.

It’s time to have your say –Whether you live in the new suburbs of Aura or one of our many historical hinterland towns, I encourage you to have your say at

Community Strategy refresh: Feedback on the draft Community Strategy can be made online until June 10.

Dark Sky Reserve: A Dark Sky Reserve in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, through the International Dark Sky Places Program, is being considered by the council and we are seeking your feedback on the proposal by June 16.

Active Transport Plan: Residents can assist the council in achieving a connected, safe, healthy and sustainable transport system by completing the online survey by June 17.

Council Budget – The council will consider and adopt its 2024-25 budget at a Special Meeting on June 20. I will share the outcomes and highlights for Division 1 following the meeting.

I look forward to seeing you out and about in our community soon.



Daryl Braithwaite’s classic song Horses is back at number one on the charts 33 years after its release – the whale charts, that is.

Apparently, whales love it!

Speaking to my pal Jonny at Sunreef, who knows just about everything there is to know about whales, the classic hit gets the marine mammals going every time. In what must be some sort of a trade secret, when they pump out the tune on Whale One, the whales start to appear.

Apparently, no other song has the same effect.

Personally, I’m more of a Tina Turner fan but, hey … Daryl’s okay, too.

If you hadn’t guessed it already, the whale season has kicked off on the Sunshine Coast and the first humpbacks are being spotted. While there are plenty of great vantage points along the shore, you can take a closer look on one of our whale-watching tours or get up close and personal on Sunreef’s swim with the

whales experience. Or for a more leisurely option, try the Sunset Whales, Ales and Prawn Tails cruise as part of The Curated Plate next month.

Blackflag Brewing is in on the action and has crafted Whale Tail Pale Ale. To mark the occasion, the business even has a Willy Wonka-style competition going, with four golden tickets (or special decals in this case) to be found on cans to win some great prizes.

Around 40,000 whales are expected to migrate this year, and when they return around September/October with their newborn calves, perhaps the next generation will have a better taste in music and rise up instead to the tunes of Tina Turner.

Jonny will have to keep me posted.

Jane Stephens points out that our current hip-pocket pain is nowhere to be seen as we continue to indulge in life’s little and big luxuries.

he cost-of-living crisis has been spelt out and analysed from all angles. It is the background music of our time.

Two years of high inflation and rising interest rates have slashed spending power. A stroll down any supermarket aisle will provide evidence that prices are up and a comparison of quarterly amenities bills will show the reasons for our hip-pocket pain.

But the cost-of-living crisis – better known by the Macquarie Dictionary’s term of the year ‘cozzie livs’ – is not biting for everyone. As always seems to be the case, those who were just scraping by a few years ago are those worse off now. The poor are poorer. But there are plenty who seem to be continuing to enjoy life’s little and large luxuries. It is easy to believe there is no cozzie livs crisis at all.

A Sunshine Coast hinterland pub in a lower socio-economic area on Sunday was packed. Beer at $8+ a pop was flowing, meals at $20+ were being ordered by queuing masses.

Brisbane Broncos games are sold out, and most people part with close to $100 for the privilege – and that is before they line up for the famously-expensive drinks and

eats. Suncorp Stadium seats more than 50,000 people, so the money is flowing freely there.

Fish and chipperies have queues out the door on Friday nights. My favourite coffee shop is chockers most mornings. The local cafes are packed at weekends and many other days besides. More than half of all adult Australians bought a ticket in the recent $160 million Powerball draw, and throwing money we apparently do not have for two chances of success – slim and none, and slim has left town.

Is it possible that all this talk about cozzie livs has been overblown, or at least is not quite the omnipresent issue politicians continually paint it to be?

Maybe. The latest RBA stats show the average weekly earning in Australia is $1432.60 and only three per cent of wages are saved. Stats also show we are spending up big, with recent Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showing our household spending is up 3.6 per cent on last year.

The Commonwealth Bank says those over 65 are spending well above the inflation rate – spending literally like there is no tomorrow. Cozzie livs? For some, the phenomenon is as made up as the words.

SSami Muirhead celebrates a chocolate bar that has long been associated with good times and birthdays throughout her life.

he is all class. Sleeker than a red sports car. More elegant than a super model. Stylish and sophisticated and her lumps and bumps and ripples bring some of us to our knees. And this year, she is turning 100.

Congratulations to the Cherry Ripe chocolate bar.

Originally created in Fitzroy in Melbourne in 1924, the cherry chomper has long bewitched many of us chocolate lovers with its chewy combination of cherries, coconut and dark chocolate.

It is the country’s oldest chocolate bar.

When I was a child, my mum would make a Cherry Ripe Slice for our birthdays some years. It was a very thick chocolate biscuit base with the mixture on top that was simply condensed milk, red food colouring and the killer fancy secret ingredient: maraschino cherries.

Oh, you were properly posh if you cooked with maraschino cherries. They were very exotic and aspirational.

Cherry Ripes cut into thirds would be plopped on top of each cube of Cherry Ripe Slice and life was good.

Truth be told, it was a sickly sweet slice

but as a kid, I thought we were basically billionaires when mum made me that slice of heaven.

Then as I got older, Cherry Ripes became my favourite movie food. I watched Ghost, Pretty Woman and Top Gun on the big screen – all while clutching and savouring my Cherry Ripe, while I watched in wonder at adults pashing in the movies.

Then, when I lived overseas, my sister would send care packs to me n Canada where I would rip open the precious mail to devour Caramello Koalas, Twisties and Cherry Ripes.

Nowadays, my three kids are fans of the Cherry Ripe and it is a treat.

I will buy those when I see them half price at the supermarket.

Some other icons are turning 100 this year, including Kleenex tissues, Band-aids, and Birdseye frozen vegetables.

They are staples in our home and very useful and I salute these products.

But for sheer decadence and joy, it has to be the celebration of the century for the cherry chocolate bar.

Happy birthday, Cherry Ripe, you delicious Aussie icon.

Buying a first home has never been harder.

The cost-of-living pressures are disproportionately having negative effects on young people.

The cost of housing is a major factor in this. Rental availability is at extremely low levels and rental prices are taking up ever-increasing proportion of the young person’s income.

It is no wonder, then, that parents are often looking to ways they can help their young adult children get onto the property ladder. The ‘bank of mum and dad’ has now become a key factor in the ability of a young person to buy a home.

The decision to help your children with a deposit or a loan guarantee is a complex one and should be made with a clear understanding of all the risks: financial and to the parent/child relationship.

If you do intend to help your children or grandchildren to become homeowners, there is an attractive option that is being underutilised. This is the First Home Super Saver Scheme. The scheme allows you to make voluntary contributions to the young person’s superannuation fund that can be used to help fund a deposit for a first home.

The contributions can be before-tax (concessional) and after-tax (nonconcessional). The maximum you can contribute is $15,000 per year and the lifetime limit is $50,000.

When the funds are eventually used for

the home deposit (after entering a binding purchase contract), the associated earning that is deemed to have been produced by these funds can also be withdrawn.

Whether to make a tax deductible or non-tax-deductible contributions will depend on the marginal tax rate of the recipient. If making a tax deductible (concessional contribution), the superannuation fund will pay 15 per cent tax on the contributions. So, only $42,500 of the $50,000 will be saved in the super account. The benefit of this is that if their marginal tax rate is 30 per cent, they will receive a $15,000 benefit in their tax returns which, hopefully, is also saved.

Another substantial benefit of this strategy is that it provides some certainty for the benefactor and the recipient of the funds. This certainty allows plans to be made by the parent and the child, as well as express limits on the quantum of assistance provided. If the home is never purchased, the funds will remain in superannuation. It will then grow and go on to help fund the young person’s retirement – also a clear benefit to their future.

Like everything that involves superannuation, there are certain complexities that need to be understood, rules that need to be followed and forms that must be completed. So, as always, if you would like to explore this option further, I would recommend talking to your financial adviser.

It’s that time of year again. The breeze is feeling cool and the thermometer dips. Jumpers are on and PJs are long.

It’s no surprise that fewer people come to the skin cancer doctor with new or changing spots. Fewer people think to check their skin in the colder weather.

Seeing changing spots late can lead to delayed diagnosis of skin cancer, meaning bigger treatments and more complications.

Thankfully, it’s easy to stay safe this winter and get those skin cancers early.

SunLife Skin Cancer Care Centre advocates this three-step approach:

• self skin check

• skin check with a skin cancer doctor

• photographic monitoring (where appropriate).

How often you do these depends on your risk.

A self skin check takes just a few minutes. Look for anything sore,

changing, abnormal or new that hasn’t resolved in five to six weeks.

Remember to look everywhere, including hard-to-see and sun-protected areas and have concerning spots looked at promptly by an experienced skin cancer doctor.

A full skin check with a skin cancer doctor includes a risk assessment and ongoing management plan for you to follow.

At your skin check, a dermatoscope is used to recognise patterns and clues to skin cancer that cannot be seen with the naked eye. This allows earlier detection and treatment.

The doctors at SunLife perform these examinations every day and have a wealth of experience in diagnosing and managing skin cancer.

If you are at high risk of melanoma, 3D Total Body Photography is available. This is a comprehensive skin-monitoring system that helps us identify changing lesions that may not otherwise have clear clues to melanoma.

Most people who use this advanced skin-imaging option have either: many moles, a strong personal or family history of melanoma, or a history of repeated sunburns.

A Buderim woman has saved $20,000 on private health spinal surgery after trying a new holistic therapy on the Sunshine Coast.

Helen Wood endured 18 months of lower back nerve pain, leg numbness and calf cramping – all stemming from a degenerated bulging disc.

“It was causing intense pain. I could hardly move and I could hardly walk,” she says.

After trying many medical and allied health treatments, including chiropractic, physiotherapy and osteopathic care, Helen says she was told she needed back surgery in order to have a pain-free life.

“I didn’t have private health cover so it was going to cost $20,000 just for the basic two-night stay,” she says.

Just a month before her scheduled surgery, a colleague recommended she try Amino Neuro Frequency therapy.

“Being new and alternative, of course I was dubious and sceptical, but I got to a point where I was ready to try anything,” Helen says. “After one or two sessions, the pain was gone.”

Helen’s dramatic turnaround can be attributed to an innovative therapy adopted by clinical nurse consultant Claire Dunkley,

who runs Cluzie Clinic in Buderim. Claire, who has been nursing for more than 20 years, is now the highest qualified ANF therapist in Australia.

“We’re all familiar with ECG which measures the electrical frequency of the heart,” she says.

“What many don’t realise is that our whole body is made up of these types of electrical currents. Just like a defibrillator resets the hearts rhythm, ANF ‘resets’ the other frequencies inside the body.”

The ANF frequencies were discovered by a Swedish doctor, who then took his research to a professional from NASA.

“The material that the discs are made out of are the same material as the space suits,” Claire says. “NASA developed it about 35 years ago because the astronauts were coming home sick. Lined with this material, the suits reflect back the human frequencies, so they stay healthy.”

A new $4 million surgical robot has arrived on the Sunshine Coast, ready to provide patients with improved outcomes.

To perform surgery with the robot, the surgeon sits down and views the surgical field through a high-definition, 3D screen inside the robot's console. They then use their hands and feet to control the instruments to make delicate and precise movements to perform the operation.

The instruments on the equipment accurately mimic a surgeon’s wrist and finger movements, while the arms and camera allow stability, minimise tremors and improve the field of vision to achieve the best-possible outcomes for patients.

Intricate surgeries that require extra-fine techniques see particularly positive outcomes for patients with the Da Vinci robot, including:

• shorter hospital stays

• less pain and discomfort

• faster recovery and return to regular activities

• smaller incisions, resulting in less risk of infection

• reduced blood loss and need for transfusions

• minimal scarring.

If you’re constantly tired and endure the discomforts of snoring, it might be more than just a nuisance.

Sleep apnea – a prevalent condition often overlooked – could be the culprit. But fear not, as addressing it is simpler than you might think.

Begin by taking a free online assessment at sleep-studies to gauge the likelihood of a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea. Your results will direct your next steps. If sleep

apnea seems probable, seek a referral for a sleep study through Telehealth or your healthcare provider, which will be conducted by Sleep Testing Australia.

During the sleep study, you’ll be fitted with a device to monitor your sleep patterns and you go home to sleep as normal. Afterward, a team of experts will analyse your results and provide a comprehensive report within two weeks.

With the guidance of a sleep consultant, you’ll understand your

Cataracts and Dry Eyes

A cataract is any clouding of the lens of the eye. The lens is situated inside the eye, behind the pupil. It acts in the same way as the lens in a camera to help focus light rays on to the light sensitive nervous tissue in the back of the eye – the retina.

Dry eye syndrome is a general term for the breakdown of the tear film that protects the eye’s front surface. It is the most common symptomatic eye condition treated at Best Practice Eyecare. Dry eye syndrome causes chronic, tired, uncomfortable eyes.

Insomnia or disruptions to sleep quality are a common problem throughout society.

Between half to two-thirds of Australians report having disrupted sleep. Often this is due to secondary issues such as chronic pain or anxiety, but may also present as an isolated sleep issue without obvious cause.

Poor quality sleep is associated with a range of negative health impacts affecting multiple body systems. These may include:

• cognitive impairment

• unstable mood

• impaired blood sugar control and weight gain

• high blood pressure

• increase risk of heart attack and stroke

• worsening of pain symptoms

• impaired immune function

• inability to maintain attention.

Medications traditionally used to treat insomnia have attracted increased concern in recent years as side effects and safety issues have become more apparent. Often such medications affect the ability to transition into the deeper phases of sleep most valuable to recovery. Even when they are effective at inducing sleep, it is of less physiological value due to this effect.

medications can be useful in assisting with the initiation and maintenance of sleep through the night. Continuous blocks of four to six hours of sleep allow completion of sleep cycles, where the brain moves through deep non-REM and REM sleep.

These are the most important phases of sleep for physiological recovery.

ECS medications also compare favourably with conventional sleep aids from a safety perspective, not suppressing breathing through the night and lower potential for addiction and longer-term

cognitive impairment. Any medication used to aid sleep is most effective when combined with non-medication-based strategies. These are discussed at the time of consultation.

Examples of sleep hygiene measures include: timing of caffeine consumption, adopting a sleep routine and limiting screen time in the hour prior to attempting to sleep. Improving sleep quality is one of the best-value interventions for health promotion and quality of life.



The human outer ear, a marvel of nature’s design, plays a vital role in our ability to hear and maintain balance.

It’s more than just a place to hang earrings: it’s a finely tuned instrument.

The outer ear consists of two main parts: the pinna (or auricle) and the ear canal. The pinna is the visible part of the ear. Its primary function is to collect sound waves from the environment and funnel them into the ear canal.

Think of the pinna as a satellite dish, capturing sound waves and directing them where they need to go.

The ear canal is a narrow passage leading from the pinna to the eardrum. This canal is about 2.5cm long in adults and has a slight ‘S’ shape.

Its walls are lined with tiny hairs and glands that produce earwax . The earwax serves an essential purpose. It traps dust, dirt, and other foreign particles, preventing them from reaching the eardrum. The ear canal also amplifies sounds, making them louder and clearer by the time they reach the eardrum.

The shape and length of the ear canal are specifically designed to enhance sounds in the frequency range most crucial for human speech.

The outer ear and ear canal are the first steps in a complex process that allows us to hear the world around us. They collect, protect and enhance sounds, ensuring that we can communicate and enjoy life. So, next time you listen to your favourite song, remember to give a little credit to your incredible outer ear and ear canal.

Ever wished you didn’t have to wear glasses?

In recent times, this has become a reality for many people with the advanced technology and surgery now available.

Glasses-free vision using intraocular lenses (IOLs) represents a significant advancement in ophthalmology, providing a permanent solution for various vision impairments such as

cataracts, myopia, hyperopia and presbyopia. These artificial lenses are surgically implanted into the eye, typically replacing the natural lens that has become clouded due to cataracts or to correct refractive errors.

The procedure involves removing the eye’s natural lens through microsurgery and replacing it with an IOL, which is designed to focus light accurately onto the retina, thereby improving vision.

There are several types of IOLs available, including monofocal lenses that provide clear vision at one distance, and multifocal lenses that correct vision at multiple distances.

One of the main benefits of IOLs is the potential for patients to achieve significantly improved vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses. This enhancement in quality of life is especially beneficial for older adults who suffer from cataracts and presbyopia.

Additionally, advancements in IOL technology continue to improve visual outcomes, reduce surgical risks and offer more customised solutions tailored to individual visual needs.

Overall, intraocular lenses are a revolutionary solution for those seeking glasses-free vision, combining safety, effectiveness and convenience in restoring and enhancing visual clarity.

At Best Practice Eyecare, the expert team carefully plans with each patient the best solution for lifestyle. A person who does plenty of reading or embroidery may choose different lenses from another who plays bowls five times a week. If you would like to consider this as an option, ask your GP or optometrist for a referral to Dr Michael Karpa.

Australian Dental Association (ADA) president and prosthodontist Dr Scott Davis welcomes the Grattan Institute’s report, Sickly sweet.

The report reiterates the ADA’s call for the introduction of a levy on sugary drinks.

“Australia must implement a tax on sugary drinks to not only curb the country’s obesity crisis but importantly to slow down the rate of tooth decay,” Dr Davis says. “As we know from numerous research studies and as made clear by this Grattan report, sugary drink taxes have led to improvements in oral health in several countries around the globe which have already instituted a levy on sugary drinks.”

The ADA has been calling on the Australian government for many years to introduce a levy on sugary drinks that would then provide funding for targeted oral health programs, as outlined in the ADA’s Dental Health Plan.

The nation’s oral health has been declining. The ADA’s Adult Oral Health Tracker demonstrates that almost one-third of Australian adults have tooth decay, with an almost seven per cent increase between 2004-06 and 2017-18.

Untreated Sleep Apnea can increase your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

Clinical research shows that as many as 48 per cent of people diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes have also been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Even more striking, researchers believe that 86 per cent of obese Type 2 Diabetic patients suffer from sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is related to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, which are both factors in Type 2 Diabetes.

Using continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy to treat your sleep apnea can improve insulin sensitivity, blood pressure and lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Although these statistics don’t necessarily prove that diabetes causes sleep apnea (or vice versa), it’s clear that there’s a real medical connection and that both conditions influence the development and progression of the other. Therefore, it is sensible to suspect that if you do have one of these conditions, your likelihood of developing the other is increased.

The International Diabetes Federation Taskforce on Epidemiology

and Prevention strongly recommends that “health professionals ensure that a patient presenting with one condition are considered for the other”. If you think you may be at risk, contact your doctor or the team at mySleep.

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to forget or realise the incredible power our minds hold over our bodies.

It’s not just about breaking a sweat, either. Embracing the mind/body connection and unlocking your true potential is just as important.

Mindfulness – Taking a moment for mindfulness can be a game changer. Mindfulness is all about being present, tuning into the sensations of your body and quieting the chatter in your mind.

Picture this: you’re powering through a tough workout and, suddenly, you become aware of the strength coursing through your muscles. That’s the magic of mindfulness: it turns your workout into a moving meditation. Consider incorporating mindful practices into your routine, such as focusing on your breath during cardio or tuning into the rhythm of your body during strength training. Your workouts will feel more purposeful and you’ll leave with a sense of calm and accomplishment.

Yoga is flexibility for your body and mind – Meet your body’s best friend: yoga. It’s not just about striking a pose, it’s a holistic experience that nurtures your physical and mental wellbeing. Yoga

enhances flexibility, tones muscles and improves balance – all while creating a Zen-like state of mind which will flow through to your workouts.

Whether you’re a yoga newbie or a seasoned pro, consider adding a weekly yoga session to your fitness routine for rest or recovery. Fernwood Fitness yoga classes are designed as an ideal blend of strengthbuilding poses and relaxation techniques.

Meditation is the ultimate strength training for the mind – Meditation is your secret weapon to stay grounded, centred and unshakeable. Just like a tough workout challenges your muscles, meditation challenges your mind, building resilience and inner strength. Incorporate short meditation sessions into post-workout cool-downs or morning routines.

Some experts believe it is a common myth that more treatment is always better when it comes to breast cancer.

Certainly 40 years ago, our grandmothers and mothers were treated with radical mastectomies, which involved the removal of the entire breast, the skin and underlying muscle, as well as the lymph glands – and this was standard treatment.

But since then, research has shown time and time again that more isn’t always the best approach.

Today, more women are surviving their breast cancer diagnosis than ever before.

And while we still have a long way to go before every patient has a treatment that is right for them and their unique situation, a new area of research has developed in recent years which is investing in patient wellbeing.

Called optimised treatment, researchers are investigating if a ‘less is more’ approach will give patients equally good or better outcomes.

By reducing the amount and intensity of treatment that patients receive, it has the potential to reduce the side effects of treatment, which can

often be long lasting.

Long-term side effects of breast cancer treatment can include heart problems, chronic pain, lymphedema, osteoporosis, cognitive dysfunction and more.

Optimised treatment means moving away from a one-size-fits-all approach to breast cancer, towards better tailoring of treatments for patients.

It may also provide doctors not just

the knowledge on how to treat the disease but also how to better care for the patient as a whole.

Breast Cancer Trials is hosting its next informative Q&A on Wednesday, June 15, from 5-6.30pm with a panel discussing why ‘less can be more’ when it comes to breast cancer treatment.

The panel is made up of Professor Boon Chua, study chair of a number of clinical trials and Professor of Medicine at the University of NSW, Dr Belinda Kiely, medical oncologist, Michelle Sinclair, psychologist and psychooncology researcher, and Margaret Lopreiato, breast cancer patient and participant in the PROSPECT clinical trial.

The Q&A will be hosted by writer and broadcaster Annabel Crabb.

This Q&A will look at open clinical trials EXPERT, OPTIMA and PROSPECT which are the latest in optimised treatment, side effects of breast cancer treatments. It will discuss the psychological impact of an optimised treatment plan and talk to breast cancer patients.

Varicose veins and their treatments

Varicose veins are superficial veins that have become abnormally distended and tortuous.

They can range in size from 2-3mm to 2-3cm.

There is a spectrum from mild venous disease such as spider veins through to advanced skin changes with venous oedema (swelling), pigmentation called hemosiderin (discolouration), venous eczema (dry skin) and venous ulceration.

Some conservative measures that assist with varicose vein symptoms include

Radiofrequency ablation for shoulder pain

Shoulder radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure used to alleviate chronic shoulder pain that has not responded to conservative treatments such as medication or physical therapy. It targets the nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals from the shoulder joint to the brain.

During the procedure, a specialised needle is inserted near the affected nerves under the guidance of X-rays. Once in place, radiofrequency energy is delivered through the needle to create heat, which selectively damages the nerves, disrupting their ability to transmit pain signals.

The benefits of shoulder RFA include pain relief without the need for major surgery.

Patients typically experience relief within a few days to weeks following the procedure, with the full effects often lasting several months to a year or more.

As with any medical procedure, shoulder RFA carries some risks, such as infection or nerve damage, but these are rare. Overall, shoulder RFA can be a valuable option for individuals seeking effective pain management and improved quality of life.

ARIES (MAR 21 - APR 19)

Mighty Mars (your boss planet) is now transiting through practical, productive Taurus (until July 20) so you’re fired up to get things done. But this week – with Pluto squaring Mars on Tuesday –moderation and cooperation could be difficult to find.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUG 22)

You’re determined to complete a project with creative panache and loads of Leo style. But there are some frustrating planetary patterns so expect power plays, disruptions or delays. Patience and compromise are required. On Friday, follow your dreams.


This week, if you’re argumentative with family members, friends and colleagues, then they will be in the mood to fight back. So – if you want to avoid fiery clashes – do your best to be more tolerant and understanding towards others.


1. Which Scandinavian meal is served buffet-style with multiple dishes of various foods on a table?

TAURUS (APR 20 - MAY 20)

With proactive Mars in your sign, and Pluto activating your career zone, you’re keen to power ahead but high stress levels, long delays and short timelines are a problem. With plenty of patience and a load of diplomacy, you’ll steer your way through a challenging week.

VIRGO (AUG 23 - SEP 22)

Virtuous Virgos love to feel useful and productive. But does it seem as if you’re treading water at work, or a close relationship is going backwards? This week Saturn slows things down and increases frustrations (especially on Wednesday).


Saturn (your ruling planet)

squares Mercury on Wednesday, so expect a stressful week of frustrations and challenges. And – courtesy of Mars and Uranus – a friend or family member could say or do something that makes you gasp.


This week – courtesy of Wednesday’s Mercury/Saturn square – work looks stressful, and you won’t have the patience to put up with annoying people or tedious explanations. So strive to extricate yourself from negative situations in a tactful way.

LIBRA (SEP 23 - OCT 22)

Saturn and Pluto stymie motivation and slow progress. You could also find it difficult to stick to your daily exercise program or usual beauty routine. Perhaps it would be better to moderate your perfectionist streak and accept your perceived imperfections?


The sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all transiting through your romance and friendship zones. Communication, creative partnerships and joint ventures are favoured, although you should expect some resistance to your ideas (and that’s OK).


Expect a rather stressful week as Saturn and Pluto stir up resentments, arguments and bad memories. Burying your head in the sand is probably a good option for overloaded crabs. Use the downtime for relaxation, contemplation and planning.


Prepare for a rather tricky week as Pluto squares Mars, and people (or circumstances) frustrate your plans. Don’t let others hijack your goals or derail your dreams. No matter how challenging things become or how long it takes, you are the captain of your own ship.

PISCES (FEB 19 - MAR 20)

Do your best to avoid Piscean procrastination and negative self-talk. Mars and Uranus are activating your learning and local environment zone. So it’s time to set ambitious goals, attract mentors and expand your world in exciting new directions.

The Sunshine Coast is named in top three-performing areas as regions’ recovery catches up with capital cities.

Regional property prices have soared to record highs as Australia’s housing crisis continues to hit across the nation.

Just three of the 50 non-capital city areas studied by CoreLogic haven’t posted a rent increase in the past three months, with 37 of those at record highs.

The data shows regional dwelling values and rent prices both hit record marks in the first quarter of 2024, rising at a faster rate than those in capital cities.

House prices went up at the fastest quarterly rate in two years, jumping 2.1 per cent compared with 1.7 per cent in the cities. And rents headed in the same direction, rising at 6.3 per cent compared with 4.9 per cent in the previous quarter.

“Housing affordability has continued to deteriorate through the start of 2024 for tenants and prospective home buyers alike,” CoreLogic Australia economist Kaytlin Ezzy says.

“After falling 5.8 per cent between May 2022 and January 2023, regional home values have seen a slower recovery compared to capital city values but have now regained the losses from the downturn to reach a new record high.”

The Sunshine Coast is one of the top three-performing regions, with the biggest quarterly rent increase

at 4.4 per cent.

“The diversity in economic activity across parts of regional Queensland, including agriculture, tourism, ports and mining, are contributing to the strength of these markets, along with their higher levels of interstate migration, relative affordability and low supply levels,” Ms Ezzy says.

Australians will soon be able to get their hands on cheap loans and save on power bills as the federal green bank makes its first investment from the $1 billion household energy upgrades fund.

The $60 million commitment announced recently will support cheaper finance for solar panels, home batteries and other energy-efficiency upgrades through discounts of up to 2.74 per cent annually on lender Plenti’s green loans.

The nation’s 11 million homes are responsible for more than 10 per cent of national greenhouse gas emissions, and more than a quarter of a per cent of electricity consumption goes on inefficient energy systems such as heating, cooling and hot water.

“These loans will let more Australians put solar panels on their roof or a battery at their back door, providing big savings on their energy bills for decades to come,” Energy Minister Chris Bowen says.

Plenti chief executive Daniel Foggo says consumers want to lower their energy bills and reduce household emissions but have been put off by the high up-front costs.

“Discounted finance will help households overcome these cost barriers and ... extend the benefits of clean energy to consumers,” he says.
