From the editor

As we celebrate National Blood Donor Week, we are reminded of the incredible impact that blood donors have on saving lives and supporting healthcare systems around the world.

This week serves as a tribute to the selfless individuals who donate blood to help those in need, often in critical situations.

Blood donors play a crucial role in providing life-saving treatments for patients undergoing surgeries, cancer treatments, organ transplants and other medical procedures. Their generosity and compassion make a significant difference in the lives of countless individuals and their families.

This week, journalist Linda Read chats with a local Paralympian who received thousands of blood donations to keep him alive, plus another milestone donor who has given the gift of life to thousands since he began donating plasma 12 years ago. It’s an inspirational read and a reminder of how the simple act of giving blood can change lives.

Thank you to all the blood donors who make a difference every day through their kindness and generosity.

The Sunshine Coast is one of the regions that has benefitted from a ‘sustained societal shift’ that began as a flow-on from the pandemic.

The Sunshine Coast remains the most popular destination for hordes of people leaving capital cities.

Millennials are leading the exodus from capital cities to regional areas, continuing a trend that began during COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and one that has been fuelled by high housing and living costs.

But people fleeing the city are not going far, overflowing to nearby regions that make up the five most popular destinations.

People fed up with expensive rents and long commutes continued to abandon Sydney, accounting for more than two-thirds of those who moved to a

regional centre in the 12 months up to the end of March.

The exodus of people from state capitals is no longer a “quirky flow-on” of the pandemic but a sustained societal shift, Regional Australia Institute chief executive Liz Ritchie says.

“People are voting with their feet and making a very conscious decision to live in regional Australia,” she says.

“With high house prices and cost-ofliving pressures biting, many people are realising the regions can offer the lifestyle they want and the jobs they’re after – minus big-city problems.”

The Sunshine Coast remains the most popular destination for people leaving a capital city, while the Gold

Coast is proving particularly popular with millennials.

Both are within 150km of Brisbane, while other desired destinations are also close to their nearest capital, with Lake Macquarie, north of Sydney, another popular choice.

Greater Geelong and Moorabool, both within 100km of Melbourne, also made the top five most popular spots.

But there is a limit to how close people wanted to be, Ms Ritchie says.

“People living in ‘commuter belts’ on the outskirts of major metropolitan cities are relocating within a few years of moving there,” she says.

The institute’s regional movers index uses Commonwealth Bank data to identify growth trends and plan for infrastructure investment in the regions.

Sydney retained its top spot, shedding more residents than any other capital.

But its outflow dropped to 67 per cent from 89 per cent in March 2023, while regional NSW inflows went from 23 per cent to 39 per cent.

More homes needed to be built to stem the flow of young people and families pouring out of Sydney and costing the city its dynamism, NSW Planning Minister Paul Scully said recently.

“That key age demographic, 30- to 40-year-olds, have been leaving at twice the rate they’ve been arriving over the last few years,” he says.

The government has announced changes to planning laws designed to increase infill development in the inner city and eastern suburbs, rather than continue adding streets to Sydney’s sprawling western fringe in a bid to deliver 377,000 new homes in five years.


Young workers across the nation could soon get a pay bump as unions seek to bring 18-year-old workers’ earnings in line with the adult wage.

Unions filed a ‘groundbreaking’ application asking the industrial relations watchdog to abolish ‘discriminatory’ junior rates in retail, fast food and pharmacy awards and pay the full adult rate for workers 18 and over. Workers under the age of 20 in retail, fast food and pharmacy are paid less than the full adult wage.

Younger workers in those sectors across Australia will see a lift in wages if the case is successful, with benefits expected to flow onto enterprise agreements with junior rates. The proposed changes could also result in a pay bump of between five and 10 per cent for workers under 16 to 50 per cent of the award and a 15 per cent pay increase for 17-year-olds.

The Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees Association national secretary Gerard Dwyer says some retail and fast food workers had many years’ experience in the sector by the time they were 18.

“If you’re of adult age, you should be paid an adult wage,” Mr Dwyer says. “There is no justification for them being paid 30 per cent less.”

Oceans of darkness Did you know?

Thanks to the ocean, most of our planet is dark. The Earth’s oceans have an average depth of 3690 metres, and because there is rarely any significant light beyond 180 metres, everything below that point is dark. As water makes up most of the planet, this means that majority of Earth exists in absolute darkness all the time.

Quote of the week


you want a thing done well, do it yourself.”

– Napoleon Bonaparte, former French emperor.

By the numbers

There are more than three million shipwrecks in the ocean.

Coral produces its own sunscreen. Too much sunlight can damage the algae that live inside coral in shallow water. To protect the algae, which are a main source of sustenance for coral reefs, the corals fluoresce. This creates proteins that act as a type of sunscreen for the algae.

Do you remember?

When you think of George Washington, you probably imagine the first president of the United States, famous for leading the nation through the revolutionary war and writing its constitution. But did you know George Washington also created instant coffee? Well, someone named George Washington did. The man behind instant coffee was George Constant Louis Washington, a Belgium immigrant to New York who held more than two dozen patents for everything from early cameras to food processors. But his biggest hit was Red E Coffee.

National Blood Donor Week puts the spotlight on everyday Aussies who are saving countless lives with a simple gesture.

Every 18 seconds, someone in Australia needs a blood donation. Often, that donation saves their life.

In 2005, Sunshine Coast resident Chris Bond became one of those people.

Mr Bond is the captain of the Australian Steelers: our nation’s double gold medal-winning Paralympic Rugby Team and reigning world champions in the sport.

Currently in preparation with his team for the Paris 2024 Paralympics in August, it’s difficult to imagine Mr Bond as being anyone other than an elite athlete at the top of his game.

However, when he was 19, he found himself battling acute promyelocytic leukaemia, which required extensive chemotherapy and hospitalisation.

A bacterial infection then followed, resulting in the loss of his left hand, right fingers and both legs below the knees.

He does not know the exact number of

blood donations he received during his treatment and recovery, as there were simply too many to count.

“I couldn’t tell you, but I would say a lot,” he tells My Weekly Preview

“I was in a hospital bed for about 10 months straight.

“I’ve had over 60 operations and in the beginning, in ICU, I was on litres of bloods and antibiotics.

“I was in hospital for about three years [altogether].”

Mr Bond speaks frankly about the fact that without those blood donations from selfless strangers, he would not be here – something that he often reflects on today.

“In the beginning [of the treatment], you don’t know what’s going on but later on, you start to understand what unfolded and to know that hundreds of people gave their blood willingly to allow me to live, essentially,” he says.

“I wouldn’t have survived without it

been replaced by a much more altruistic motive, which germinated when Mr Carr worked as a theatre assistant in hospitals and continues to grow through his work in special education.

“Initially, I saw it as a way to address my own fears, but as a young adult working in the field and seeing the benefit for the kids, it spurred me on even more,” he says.

“It then became a combination of ‘I can conquer this fear, and I can do some good for those kids that I’m working with’. I saw those kids going off and having cancer treatments.

“I’ve told them at the blood bank they should try and get some goodlooking donors, and they should put out for some younger models, but it’s just something I want to keep doing for as long as they’ll let me.”

While Mr Carr donates plasma every 12 days, he can say with conviction that his needle phobia is well and truly a thing of the past, and he urges others to give blood donation a try.

“It’s so easy to do,” he said.

– that’s pretty special.”

Those special gifts – the blood and plasma donations from people who donate regularly – are being celebrated this week as part of The Australian Red Cross Lifeblood’s National Blood Donor Week (June 10-16).

The occasion is an opportunity to recognise the Sunshine Coast’s donors.

It also aims to inspire others to join the community of blood and plasma donors who regularly save lives by giving 1.6 million donations across Australia every year, Lifeblood spokesperson Belinda Smetioukh says.

“One-in-three people will need blood or blood products in their lifetime, so we want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all our donors who made a difference – not only to their community, but to patients and families all over Australia,” Ms Smetioukh says.

“On the Sunshine Coast, our local donors are the lifeblood of our community. This National Blood Donor Week, we will be celebrating 41 locals who, this past year, have achieved a milestone donation of 200 or more.

“Between them, they’ve made over 11,200 donations.”

One of the most prolific of those milestone donors is Coast resident and special education teacher Patrick Carr, 55, who has completed more than 325 donations since 2006, and who has no intention of stopping any time soon.

Mr Carr admits that his initial motivation for becoming a donor was a little selfish. He was a self-confessed ‘needle phobic’, due to spending plenty of time in hospitals as a child, and he hoped that giving blood would help him overcome his phobia.

That fear, however, has long since

“The staff and the nurses at the donor centre are just so supportive and they do everything to put you at ease.

“Once you’ve done it a few times, you barely feel it. I seriously don’t feel the needle.”

Despite Lifeblood’s celebration of milestone donors such as Mr Carr, Ms Smetioukh says more donors are desperately needed.

“We are calling on people to become the lifeblood of Australia, the lifeblood of their communities and the lifeblood of those patients who need blood and blood products every day,” she says.

“This week, we still need 200 Sunshine Coast locals to roll up their sleeves and give blood in Maroochydore and Nambour.

“From cancer patients to road-trauma victims, people with blood disorders, surgical patients and new mums – blood is needed for someone, somewhere in Australia, every 18 seconds.

“It takes just an hour of your time to donate blood and every donation can help save up to three lives.”

For Mr Bond, the need for regular blood donations is, quite literally, always close to his heart.

He deeply admires his own father, who has given more than 100 donations, inspired by his son’s experience.

“People might say I’m extraordinary, but what my father has done is extraordinary and he’s saved countless lives,” Mr Bond says.

“I’m sure everyone has been affected by someone in their circle or extended circle who has received or needed blood – that could be you tomorrow.

“The roads are pretty dangerous and life’s unpredictable.

“And it’s something that everyone can do. Most people can go out and take a bit of time out of their day, which can actually really affect someone else’s life.

“So, I would highly encourage people to go out and give blood, if and when they can.”


Everyone who donates during National Blood Donor Week and until July 14 will receive a limited-edition bandage designed by Indigenous Australian artist Aretha Brown (pictured).

The bandage is a ‘thank you’ to the more than half-a-million donors across Australia, who make up our life-saving community.

A Sunshine Coast schoolgirl is racing towards fulfilling her dream of becoming an Australian Paralympian. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

Grace Brimelow has been working hard to harbour a dream she first had as a 13-year-old: to one day go to the Paralympics.

The now 17-year-old aspiring para triathlete can almost reach that dream after recently racing in Spain.

The World Cup race was her final opportunity to accumulate points to go towards her ranking that decides who will make the team for Paris 2024.

Flashback to September 2022 and Grace was starting to make a real name for herself, being selected to participate in a national para-development camp for triathlon. Now, after years of hard work and dedication to her training and racing, Grace sits third in the Australian rankings.

The Sunshine Coast Grammar School student was born with Cri Du Chat syndrome (a rare genetic disorder caused by missing pieces on a particular chromosome), which impacts her physical capacity and strength.

Grace placed first in her race in Vigo, Spain, backing up wins in World Cup and series races in Australia at Stockton and Devonport earlier this year.

Also a decorated swimmer, Grace had to choose between the pool and triathlon as qualifications for Paris were nearing.

Grace chose triathlon.

“I love that it has three activities in one sport, which is pretty cool,” she says.

Grace’s mother Simone Pearce tells My

Weekly Preview that her daughter has now done all she can.

“All the athletes are able to use their best-three results for the year to accumulate points to rank them,” she says.

“For Australia’s purposes, if you are in the top five in the world, you automatically qualify to go to the Paralympics.

“Grace went to race in Spain with a plan to try and get some points to try and get up in the ranking. She’s got three from three, which is pretty good, and that last race currently puts her ranked No.3 in the Paralympic ranking. There are two races left in June that could change the result, depending on how the other athletes go, but she should stay in that top five or seven.

“We are hoping that she’s done enough to get picked.”

Ms Pearce says athletes who rank between sixth and ninth can still be chosen to compete at the Games, via discretionary selection.

This was also Grace’s first season racing after being reclassified to the PTS4 class for para triathlon. She is also one of the youngest triathletes currently racing.

“She was unable to race from July last year to a day before her race in Stockton in February when she was reclassified,” Ms Pearce says. “Grace’s disability is not one you can see. She’s a bit of a mystery box. She’s in PTS4 and she’s doing well in it.”

Ms Pearce says the plan now is for Grace to put her head down and train as if she is going to Paris. Grace says it would be a dream come true to be selected.

“It would be (so) incredible and I would love to experience what it’s like,” she says.

“I’ve always had this goal in mind when I wanted to go somewhere with my sport.

“So, that pathway that has led me, hopefully, to Paris. I would look back on my journey and think all of this hard work has paid off.”


The Twin Waters Residents’ Association recently held a safety forum giving the community an opportunity to connect with local police.

The forum, held in collaboration with officers from the Coolum Beach Police Station, Twin Waters Neighbourhood Watch and the Pacific Paradise Progress Association, follows recent public discussions on crime in the area.

Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson, who attended the event, says the region is not immune to crime.

“Thanks to Twin Waters Resident Association recently, a very informative crime forum was held with people sharing their stories and police giving an update as to where things are at currently,” Ms Simpson says.

“Neighbourhood Watch also provided a practical input as to community action to be alert in what’s happening in our streets.”

Meanwhile, Sunshine Coast Police are reminding residents to ensure property is locked and secured after an identified rise in thefts from multi-level and apartment complexes.

“Many crimes are opportunistic and by ensuring property and items are properly locked and secured, the chance of theft can be reduced,” Senior Constable Peta Schenk says.

“In a multi-residential complex, a lapse in security of communal areas, including garages, compromises the security of the whole building.

“Many high-rise break-ins occur through open or unlocked balcony doors and living or staying several floors up still means you should lock your doors.”

People from diverse backgrounds have taken part in a special event.

Community members of all ages recently gathered to participate in an important local Reconciliation event.

The annual Aunty Betty Memorial Reconciliation Walk, held at Dicky Beach, is an event that honours the memory and

work of well-regarded elder, Aunty Betty McMahon.

Held during National Reconciliation Week (May 27 to June 3), the walk is an initiative of the Sunshine Coast Reconciliation Group Inc (SCRGI).

This year’s theme was: “Now more

than ever”. Aunty Betty, who had been patron of SCRGI, is remembered as a woman of action – supporting and guiding young people and establishing and championing several community organisations.

SCRGI treasurer Naomi McQueen says she was thrilled with the large and diverse crowd that turned up on May 29. She is also praising the presence of local government representatives, saying it is positively contributing to the effort to strengthen reconciliation in the region.

“The enthusiastic response to join the Aunty Betty Memorial Reconciliation Walk that we have received from our recently elected Mayor and councillors demonstrates that the Sunshine Coast is committed to moving towards Reconciliation,” she says.


Businesses and employees across the Glass House area have been recognised in the annual Small Business Awards Gala.

Almost 2000 votes were cast for the 90 businesses and 41 employees nominated for the ‘Glassies’ by their customers, peers and bosses.

This year’s Gold Glassie Business Winner is Club Glass House.

A raft of businesses from across Maleny, Montville and Glass House country were also recognised with silver and bronze awards.

The highly coveted gold award is decided by Glass House MP Andrew Powell, while the silver is people’s choice and bronze awards are chosen by Chamber of Commerce presidents.

This was also the second year implementing the Hall of Fame category. The Hall of Fame recipients are Clock Shop, Maleny Jewellers, Crystal Multiverse and Rosetta Books.

“I host the Glassies each year to celebrate these small businesses and acknowledge the community’s appreciation for their hard work and dedication,” Mr Powell says. “It is always difficult to choose the bronze and gold winners due to the quantity and quality of entries, and we deliberate over the options for a long time before selecting the winners.”

Arts festival showcases work from residents living with a disability.

This month’s Graceville Arts Festival will provide an outlet for Sunshine Coast residents living with a disability or mental health challenge to showcase their artistic talents.

artists in an inclusive event that attracts amazing creatives who love to return to exhibit every year,” Ms Rames says.

This year’s feature artist is awardwinning Landsborough artist Bob Maas who lives with a mental illness.

Mr Maas says he uses art as therapy – combined with exercise and maintaining good thoughts – to help him manage his stress.

He has been painting for 40 years, working with oils and pastels, and regularly takes part in exhibitions on the Coast and in Brisbane.

“My favourite spot to paint is up on the hill at Maleny and I choose jacarandas or a house as a point of interest,” Mr Maas says.

Inspired by artists Hans Heysen and Vincent Van Gogh, Mr Maas graduated from the Queensland College of Art with a certificate in Applied Art and Honours in Drawing, Painting and Illustration.

“Painting is a job now and that’s why I like it. I’m working for myself and that’s great,” he says.


School students will be among those to benefit from safety and accessibility improvements at a busy Bokarina intersection.

Upon consultation with the community, the Nicklin Way-Meridian Street-Beach Drive intersection has been identified for upgrades.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is undertaking detailed design work, which includes the removal of slip-lanes and traffic islands, reconfigured pedestrian facilities and line marking.

A reconfigured pedestrian crossing will remove the need for students to congregate on traffic islands, as they make their way to school.

“Nicklin Way is a heavily trafficked, urban arterial road that connects the coastal suburbs on the Sunshine Coast,” TMR regional director for the North Coast Region Scott Whitaker says.

The festival, now in its fourth year, is run by Lutheran Services’ Graceville Centre and will be open to the public from June 21-23.

Graceville Centre’s Zoe Rames says the festival is an annual celebration of creativity and collaboration.

“We celebrate the diversity of local

Funds raised from the arts festival help support creative programs for the Graceville Centre’s clients. The three-day event includes workshops, market stalls, entertainment, food and family fun.

Graceville Arts Festival will be held at St Luke’s Church, 10 Sydney Street, Nambour. Visit

“These works at the intersection with Meridian Street and Beach Drive will provide a safe crossing for the community – in particular, the vulnerable pedestrians who use the intersection.”

Joint federal and Queensland government funding of $4.68 million has been allocated for the project as part of the 2023-2025 Road Safety Program.

Decision reached on Mooloolaba foreshore’s future

Construction work on Stage 2 of the ‘regionally significant project’ is set to begin early next year.

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

Construction will begin early 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.

Deputy Mayor Maria Suarez says the report was 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.

Jane Stephens believes it’s time for Queensland to move on from outdated ways of controlling sharks that serve to ‘catch and kill’ other creatures.

inter has just made its resplendent entrance and we have already had the first of what is likely to be many whales entangled in Sunshine Coast shark nets.

This time it was off Caloundra, but it is a (un)lucky dip for where the next trauma will occur, with 18 nets coast-wide ready to catch and kill. It is time once and for all to get rid of shark nets. They are barbaric, a blunt instrument and so old-fashioned they are no longer relevant.

The Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries says shark nets are not intended to be a barrier between swimmers and marine creatures. Its says nets do not prevent sharks entering an area but are merely meant to catch or interrupt them on their way through.

Beachgoers don’t know that. They think a net makes them safe. It doesn’t. And there is no evidence that swimmers are less safe in the water on beaches that do not have nets. Let’s lift them. Let’s move on and get real, given that shark nets catch too many other creatures on their way through as well – particularly the migrating gentle marine giants and, soon, their newborn calves.

A survey run by Independent Member Sandy Bolton in March found that threequarters of Noosa respondents wanted the four additional shark nets there removed.

Here’s hoping Ms Bolton will use her voice in state parliament to get action and clear beaches Queensland-wide of these cruel and indiscriminate torture devices.

Queensland is the only state left in Australia which leaves shark nets in the migratory path of whales. It is one of the few places internationally that uses equipment that is indiscriminate and therefore also catches and kills protected and endangered marine species, and not too many sharks of a size deemed to be dangerous to humans. There are 60 drumlines – baited hooks designed to catch and drown sharks. But they catch and drown any number of other species, too – from Noosa to Caloundra. We are some of the few jurisdictions who continue to use these as well.

But let’s start small and lift the nets –not just when the weather is foul and the government is fearful of damage to its equipment, but now that whales are on the move and fewer people are playing in the cooler water. It is right, humane and necessary.

SSami Muirhead firmly believes that: ‘Now is the winter of our content’, as we embrace comfort food, flannelette sheets and sexy old blokes.

ummer is my favourite season on the Sunshine Coast. But I do have a soft spot for winter. That’s because winter is all about what defines my weak spots: comfort food, cosy fabrics and couch resting for hours. In summer, I feel guilty if I am not outside soaking up our supreme sunshine and beaches. But in winter, my guilt goes out the door with my thongs and togs and I am very happy to hibernate. Winter is the ultimate weather for warm cherry pies covered in cream, hot sticky date puddings topped with ice-cream, and pears stewing in the oven before swimming in red wine and cinnamon. Nothing tastes better than a bowl of chilli con carne with corn chips and sour cream. Eat this bowl of comfort food around a firepit or maybe opt for a hearty stew mopped up with fresh white bread. This is living. Winter is also the best season for bringing out a prized possession: flannelette sheets. These are the unsung heroes of the season. If there was a fire in our house, I would save the kids and dogs and then the flanno sheets and photo albums. That is how high up the totem pole they are when it comes to hero worship.

And I am late to the party, but my recommendation for the cold nights is to watch Clarkson’s Farm on Netflix. Jeremy Clarkson, from Top Gear fame, hilariously captures his failures at farming a picturesque block of land in the Cotswolds in England. It is extremely funny viewing and good for the soul to see how hard our farmers work on the land.

Clarkson was just voted the United Kingdom’s Sexiest Man Alive for the second year in a row. He is weathered and 62 and beat Ryan Reynolds and Idris Elba to take out the top spot. That just proves funny is sexy. So, it is time to embrace winter and all the good things it brings: comfort food, sexy older blokes and flannelette sheets. Wintering is a new concept that means we go to ground and embrace being home and comfort creatures. Katherine May, the author of the concept, says wintering is those times in life where we feel out in the cold. Perhaps someone we love has passed away or we have been fired from our job. Going to ground mimics what nature does in winter to rest and restore life sources and heal in readiness for the sweet summer season around the corner. Imagine taking a pup to work every day!

Are you craving a vacation without a soundtrack of screaming kids? Do you want to be on an exclusive adults-only ship? Do you love cruising, but feel it’s time for a contemporary twist? See why people are getting on board a Virgin Voyage with a luxuriously designed, exclusively adult cruise.

With kid-free, superyacht-inspired ships featuring signature red hammocks on every balcony and a focus on offering nothing less than exceptional service, Virgin Voyages’ unique vision has been defying sailors’ expectations since they first hit the water.

Brilliant Lady will be setting sail in September 2025 and embarking on the ultimate cross-country sea trip with a series of longer itineraries up to 14 nights – unlike anything offered before. Her inaugural North American tour will feature itineraries such as New York City to Bermuda and Canada, Los Angeles to Mexico, Miami to the ‘ABC Islands’ (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao) and Seattle to Alaska, along with one epic voyage through the Panama Canal.

Enjoy a lavish retreat at sea, exploring everything from Hollywood sunsets and Mexican horizons to coastal culture in Cartagena, gorgeous Greek and Adriatic isles, colourful Curacao and the charming Caymans. Each destination

offers immersive adventures, while award-winning dining, entertainment and service on every voyage provides the ideal backdrop.

Leave pre-set dining times and lacklustre buffets to other cruise lines. At Virgin, indulge in made-to-order food from more than 20 unique eateries, guaranteeing delicious flavours and a remarkable culinary experience. You’ll dine on hanger steak and lemon cheesecake at The Wake, mezze-style bites and glasses of rosé in the open air of The Dock or get the crew together for a lively Korean barbecue free-for-all at Gunbae – all with views of the waves. No stuffiness, just brilliant service and endless options.

Stay in exclusive superyacht-inspired cabins built to optimise space and views. With areas that transform to your given mood, you can live like a rock star or retreat to a quiet and luxurious oasis whenever you need a break away from all the action. What’s even better is that you can save 70 per cent off the second sailor on all voyages from now through to 2026. But be quick as this offer ends on July 31.

I was lucky enough to travel to three of Europe’s most beautiful cities – Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna – while aboard a luxurious Uniworld River Cruise.

After experiencing river cruising along the Danube River, I now truly do believe that the best way to immerse yourself in these three cities is to travel along the waterways of Europe.

I started my experience with one night in Budapest before our river cruise, staying at the ultra-luxury Ritz Carlton Budapest and wow, what a hotel!

The Ritz-Carlton Budapest is the ideal blend of luxury and tradition. From the moment you step into the lobby, you know this is going to be an experience to remember.

The signature fragrance is delicately pumped through the air-conditioning, and a very warm welcome with a glass of champagne at check-in adds a touch of elegance.

The Ritz Carlton hotel is in the heart of the flat ‘Pest’ side of the city (as opposed to the hilly ‘Buda’) and is a

short walk to St Stephen’s Basilica and Erzsebet Square, with many fabulous dining options.

Budapest, the ‘Queen of the Danube’, is a gorgeous city with two very distinct sides, separated by the Danube River. The Buda side is the historic centre and home to the spectacular Buda Castle, The Fisherman’s Bastion and the Gellert Thermal Baths, which are well worth a visit. On the vibrant Pest side of the river, you will find elegant hotels, bustling markets and sophisticated restaurants and bars. The Pest side is also home to the spectacular Parliament Building, which lights up in the evening overlooking the Chain Bridge and the river.

From Budapest, we cruised along the Danube, crossing into beautiful Slovakia, and spent the day exploring its capital city Bratislava. This charming city is filled with cobblestone streets, Medieval architecture and wonderful cafes and trendy boutiques.

This is one of the easiest cities to explore by foot as soon as you step off the river cruise and I recommend you hike to Bratislava Castle, which is perched on the hill overlooking the old town and the Danube for a great photo opportunity.

Our final stop was the Austrian capital

of Vienna, which is a city that is renowned for its classical music and stunning State Opera House. However, there is so much more to this city. Vienna is one of the cleanest cities I have ever visited, and the buildings and architecture are picture perfect.

You must visit the Grand Schönbrunn Palace and its regal gardens. You will need to pre-purchase tickets so that you do not miss out. Take a stroll down Stephansplatz and visit one of the elegant coffee houses for a Viennese coffee and some Sacher torte (it is delicious and indulgent).

A visit to Vienna would not be complete without a walk through the renowned Spanish Riding School and taking in a show. We stayed at the Marriott Vienna, which is a good-quality, four-star hotel, well located across the road from the Stadtpark – Vienna’s greenspace and a lovely area to bask in the sun and people watch.

If you want to splurge and stay at an iconic hotel, consider the Imperial Hotel or the Bristol Hotel Vienna. Be sure to bring your appetite as Austria is the home of schnitzel and strudel and it certainly did not disappoint.

The temperatures have dropped and there’s no escaping the fact that winter has set in here on the Sunshine Coast. And with the new season comes a chance for renewed interiors. Earthy tones will be the biggest trend over the coming months: deep browns, rich rusts and warm neutrals. But renowned Australian stylist and owner of Vault Interiors, Justine Wilson, says there are plenty of ways to infuse warmth and style into your home.



Install layered curtains or drapes to add an extra layer of insulation and warmth to your windows. Choose heavy fabrics such as velvet or thermal-lined curtains to block out cold drafts and retain heat.

SOFT LIGHTING: Opt for warm, ambient lighting to create a welcoming atmosphere. Consider using table lamps with soft, diffused light or adding candles and lanterns for a cosy glow during the evenings. We think the Clara touch table lamp (pictured), from Discount Lighting and Fans, Warana, ticks all the boxes.

Within the guidance of its secure and supportive community, the college fosters an environment where students thrive, empowering them through the development of skills, knowledge and self-reliance.

Whether you’re shopping for groceries, attending a medical appointment or going on a road trip, convenience and safety are important factors when planning outings.

A disability parking permit can be a helpful tool that enables people with certain disability to participate in daily activities more easily.

Typically, the permit allows the permit-holder to park in disabilityfriendly parking spots and to leave the car for a longer period without penalty.

Although each Australian state and territory is responsible for managing its own parking permit program, there are nation-wide standards that are set out by the Australian Disability Parking Scheme to reduce barriers for people with disability.

Across Australia, eligibility requirements typically include:

• the person must have a physical disability that affects mobility or be legally blind

• the person must be unable to use public transport

• the person must have a permanent condition or expect that it will last for more than six months.

In addition, every region has its own set of eligibility criteria, application process and rules for using the permit.

Businesses and organisations that transport eligible people with disability can also apply for a disability parking permit.

Check out the state-by-state guide for more information on how to apply for a disability parking permit in each region.

ARIES (MAR 21 - APR 19)

Don’t barge in with full moon guns blazing. If you do, then you could end up smack bang in the middle of a fiery argument – especially at work. The sun transits into your home zone on Thursday night/ Friday morning, so it’s a good time to focus on home and hearth.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUG 22)

Lions can appear to be brazenly bold but sometimes (on the inside) you feel like a much less confident kitten – especially this week, when confusing Neptune squares the sun. However, proactive Mars is charging through your career zone, so ditch the doubts.


The focus is on financial matters, as the full moon fires up your spontaneous spending gene. Which is OK – as long as you have the cashflow to fund it. If you don’t, then you’ll have to entertain yourself in more frugal ways.


1. The Great Depression, which caused a global economic downturn, began in which year?

TAURUS (APR 20 - MAY 20)

Neptune squares your ruler Venus on Monday, so be aware that all is not as it seems (especially involving friends and/or finances). Then the full moon activates your adventure-and-exploration zone. Plus, Mars and Uranus push you to jump out of your comfort zone.

VIRGO (AUG 23 - SEP 22)

This week Uranus, Mars and Mercury encourage educational matters, travel arrangements and proactive communication. But don’t let yourself be deceived by fake news, dubious friends or empty promises. Keep your eyes wide open.


Even though the full moon is in your sign, it’s not all about you this week. Venus, Mercury and the sun shift into your partnership zone, so the focus is firmly on relationships (romantic, platonic and business). It’s time to walk around in the shoes of others for a while.


Are you impatient for adventure, excitement and success?

Awesome opportunities are circling around you, but they’re not immediately obvious. They are hidden in unexpected places, waiting for you to discover them.

LIBRA (SEP 23 - OCT 22)

On Monday your deft diplomatic skills are required to sort out a messy misunderstanding. Then Friday’s full moon highlights home and family, so it’s a good time to network and socialise with family and friends, as you mix business with plenty of pleasure.


Courtesy of the sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, it’s a wonderful week to express your creativity in exciting new ways. But consider the consequences of what you do and say. If you act without all the facts, you could find yourself deep in a misunderstanding.


This week don’t let your crab curiosity (and fertile imagination) cloud your better judgment. Step back and view a complex situation from a wider perspective, and a more realistic angle. If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.



old emotional wound or patch up a relationship problem.

PISCES (FEB 19 - MAR 20)

Piscean plans could be turned upside down as Neptune (your patron planet) squares Venus, Mercury and the sun, and throws unrealistic expectations and confusing misunderstandings into the mix – especially involving relationships and communication.


2. How many bones does the adult human body have?

Complete the list by changing one letter at a time to create a new word at each step. There may be more than one answer.


3. Olivia Colman (pictured) won an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Anne in which film?

4. Epistemology is the theoretical study of which branch of philosophy?

5. Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg in which year?

6. The Megane is a model of car produced by which European automobile manufacturer?

7. By total area, what is the world’s second-largest country after Russia?

8. The bush ballad Waltzing Matilda was written by which Australian poet?

9. Founded in 1088, the world’s oldest university is in which Italian city?

10. ‘Rosebud’ is the famous dying word of the main character from which 1941 film?

These 10 top tips will arm you with the knowledge and confidence to take that leap of faith into the real estate market.

In an ever-evolving real estate landscape, first-time homebuyers face a myriad of challenges when embarking on their homeownership journey.

To aid these aspiring homeowners in their search for their perfect abode, industry experts have shared some invaluable advice and top tips to navigate the complexities of the real estate market.

Here are 10 top tips to consider before taking the leap into home ownership:

1. Start saving early. Begin saving for a down payment as early as possible to increase your options and potentially secure a better mortgage rate.

2. Check your credit score. A good credit score is essential for getting a favourable mortgage rate. Check your score and work on improving it if necessary.

3. Establish a realistic budget. Before scouring property listings, it is crucial for first-time homebuyers to determine a realistic budget. Consider factors such as your income, existing debts and potential future expenses.

A general rule of thumb is that your mortgage payment should not exceed 28

per cent of your gross monthly income.

4. Get pre-approved for a mortgage. To strengthen your position as a buyer and streamline the homebuying process, obtaining pre-approval for a mortgage is essential. This will provide you with a clear understanding of how much you can afford and demonstrate to sellers that you are a serious buyer.

5. Research neighbourhoods. Beyond the walls of a property, the neighbourhood in which it is located plays a significant role in your overall satisfaction with your new

home. Research factors such as amenities, school districts, crime rates and property values to find a neighbourhood that aligns with your lifestyle and preferences.

6. Work with a knowledgeable real estate agent. Partnering with a reputable real estate agent can be instrumental in navigating the complexities of the housing market. An experienced agent can provide valuable insights, negotiate on your behalf and guide you through each step of the homebuying process.

7. Don’t skip the home inspection. A

thorough home inspection is a nonnegotiable step in the homebuying process. Hiring a qualified inspector can help uncover potential issues with the property, allowing you to make an informed decision and potentially avoid costly repairs down the line.

8. Factor in extra costs. In addition to the down payment, first-time homebuyers should budget for additional costs. These costs include fees for appraisal, title insurance, legal services and more. So, it is important to budget accordingly.

9. Think long-term. Consider your future needs and how long you plan to stay in the home. Choose a property that meets your current needs but also has the potential for resale value.

10. Enjoy the process. Buying your first home is a significant milestone. Enjoy the journey and the excitement of finding a place to call your own.

By following these expert tips and arming themselves with knowledge, first-time homebuyers can navigate the real estate market with confidence and make informed decisions when purchasing their dream home.

This amazing opportunity is not to be missed. A family home with everything you could

Light, spacious and open with plenty of room for everyone and a features list to please and delight. Representing outstanding buying value. Call today to secure your future.

Okay, peeps. Do you want motivation to stay healthy? Well, here it is.

The above picture is of a friend who last week scored wave after wave after wave in G-Land, Indonesia. He surfs there for six months of the year and celebrated his 75th birthday last week. Imagine for a moment getting barrelled like that at 75. Are you kidding me?

Happy birthday, my Hawaiian friend.
