Alexa’s set for Paris

Noosa local Alexa Leary is living her ’second life’ to the fullest, swimming her way into securing a ticket to the Paris Paralympics.

The 22-year-old has inspired the nation at the Australian swimming trials, with her vibrant energy capturing the crowd’s attention.

Alexa said, “It’s nearly my three year anniversary since the accident, and I’ve had a lot of support along the way.“

“I’m really proud of myself as I’ve come so far.“

Despite her happy-go-lucky nature, it’s taken a lot of literal blood, sweat and tears to reach this point, and Alexa credits her swim coach Jon Bell for his support along the way.

“I was actually swimming when I first got out of hospital for rehab as it was one of the main things that the doctors wanted me to do,“ she said.

Green revolution

Noosa Council this week gave its final rubber stamp to what many regard as the most significant environmental project ever undertaken in Noosa – the acquisition and transition to National Park of 2400 hectares of former forestry land, linking Cooloola to Coolum in an almost uninterrupted arc of green space.

Councillors voted unanimously to accept the final report of the transition committee of theYurol-RingtailConservationproject,chaired

by former Council CEO Brett de Chastel, bringing to a close the formal side of a remarkable project, dreamed about for half a century and delivered over the past decade. All the key players from the past four councils were present in the chamber for the historic vote.The other side of the picture, out there in the former logging camps, will be completed with the final handover of forestry in late August.

“A lot of people don’t realise the scope of what is now National Park,” Mr de Chastel told Noosa Today on the eve of delivering his

report. “This is a vast tract of land on which replanting is well underway [some 131,000 trees already planted] and will be a magnificent addition to Noosa’s natural environment for generations to come.”

As Noosa Today reported two years ago when the project entered its final phase:YurolRingtail is perhaps best understood by taking a hinterland drive. From Tewantin, head out along McKinnon Drive towards Boreen Point. To your left, with the exception of a few private properties, all the forest you see is part of the

new park. At Louis Bazzo Drive go left. The forest you see to either side is parkland all the way to the outskirts of Pomona. From Pomona to Cooroy, the forest to the left is parkland. Take the Cooroy-Noosa Road towards Tewantin. From Tinbeerwah to the bottom of the escarpment, the forest on both sides is parkland.Welcome to Yurol-Ringtail. But strangely, few people outside a small cohort who helped create it seem to know much about this extraordinary achievement.

“Noosa District State High School is a vital part of our community and will soon be celebrating 61 years of educating our children, including my own, and it is essential that current and future students have access to modern, well-equipped facilities to support their learning and development,” Ms Bolton said.

The new $11.9 million State Governmentfunded Noosa hinterland facility also has 52 new car parks, a fire system with two holding tanks and electrical system. In addition, the hall includes a performance stage, storage and staff rooms, kinesiology lab/gym, kitchen kiosk, foyer, office, backstage area and other amenities.

“The uses are vast, from school assemblies, performances, sports and events to community gatherings.This is a fantastic achievement and addition to our beautiful Noosa countryside,” Ms Bolton said.

NDSHS, via their school budget and P&C, contributed $121,000 towards covered walk-

ways and pathways around the building as well as a retractable seating storage alcove.

School principal Stacy Wilmore said “The completion of our multi-purpose hall is an exciting addition to our Junior Secondary Campus facilities in what is already an amazing place for students to grow and learn. This facility will value add to our bespoke Junior Secondary campus and programs that provides the perfect environment for students to commence their high school journey. We look forward to sharing this with our wider community at every opportunity.”

Ms Bolton sends her gratitude to all involved including the former Education Minister Grace Grace MP, and current Di Farmer MP and their departments, the North Coast region staff, contractors and construction workers.

“What started as a conversation with the previous school principal some years ago has now become a reality. Special thanks to principal Stacy, the P&C and all our students. You are our future, and I hope you love this hall as much as we do,” Ms Bolton said.

Updates on many local matters Sandy is working on are available on Noosa 360 at www.

It’s school holidays again, so what do you do with the kids once you’ve exhausted your time on the beach or hinterland walks.

Don’t despair, there’s plenty on offer. For the tech savvy, Peregian Digital Hub has organised two weeks of fun and creative technology-related workshops for girls and boys aged 7-16. Theatre buffs will enjoy The Sponge Bob Square Pants musical at The J or The Wizard of Oz youth edition at Noosa Arts Theatre. At Noosa Regional Gallery children can step into a magical world where art and nature collide at Imaginate, a biennial event especially for children. Our libraries at Noosaville and Cooroy have a host of activities planned. They include creative adventures involving making an ancient headdress, then snapping a shot of it in their Photo Booth, making your own Sock Puppet and putting on a puppet show and for the environmentally-minded, building a bird house. If something more energetic is more your style there are step classes for kids or casual hoops at the Noosa Leisure Centre and holiday swim classes at the Aquatic Centre.

Shopping centres also have activities. At Noosa Civic test your agility, strength and ninja skills at the Ultimate Ninja Kids Obstacle course. At Noosa Fair for those little green thumbs, plant your very own sunflower to take home and watch as it blooms under your special care. For more visit noosa.

Native title recognition

It was a long fought victory for traditional owners whose native title rights over more than 365,000 hectares of land in southeast Queensland have been recognised in the Federal Court.

The Kabi Kabi Traditional Owners’ non-exclusive rights to an area of 10,280 square kilometres along the Sunshine Coast were recognised in Brisbane on Monday.

The recognition spans Gympie, Noosa, the Glasshouse Mountains, Maroochydore, Caloundra, Bribie Island and Mudjimba Island.

Kabi Kabi man Brian Warner said while the decision was cause for celebration, there was also sadness as the long process meant some Elders who started the battle had died while waiting for an outcome.

“There’s elation, but there’s also sorrow and sadness,” he said.

“Many of the people who started this journey aren’t with us here today.”

In handing down her decision Justice Berna Collier said Kabi Kabi people “have and always have had native title rights and interests in this country”.

The determination is the first on the east coast to recognise native title in a heavily urbanised area.

It’s also the first time the right to take resources from the area for any purpose has been recognised in southeast Queensland; previously the right to take resources had been limited to personal, communal and non-commercial purposes.

Kabi Kabi Elder Michael Douglas said this would mean the right to access the resources his ancestors had been using for thousands of years.

“That gives us our rights to go back and utilise, for our people to take timber ... to make boomerangs or spears,” he said.

“All that stuff is in our hand and we can proudly walk away today, and we have been empowered.”

Mr Warner said the right to take resources from the land was also a way of caring for country.

“Our people have a sustainable way of life and living,” he said.

“It’s not about the over-demand or oversupply of resources, it’s about protecting those resources.”

There are three parts to the Kabi Kabi native title claim - Monday’s decision applies only to part A, with parts B and C yet to be determined.

Tim Wishart, chief executive of Queensland South Native Title Services, which assisted Kabi Kabi people with their claim, said the decision was an acknowledgment of the rights of traditional owners.

“Kabi Kabi people have a right to move about on the land, to camp on the land, to build temporary structures, to teach their kids, to take some resources, to hunt, fish,” he said.

“Rights that coexist with the rights that every other Australian has.”

Kabi Kabi woman Helena Gulash said she hoped the decision would mean a strong foundation for future generations.

“It’s been very hard for us to afford to live on our land, and it still will be, but we want to make sure for our younger generations that there’s a really bright future ahead of them,” she said.

“So they will be able to live, work, camp on country, raise their families on Kabi Kabi country.”

Noosa Council congratulated the Kabi Kabi Peoples Aboriginal Corporation on the Federal Court’s formal recognition as native title holders.

Mayor Frank Wilkie said the ruling was a significant milestone for the Kabi Kabi People.

“This has been over a 10-year process and an incredible journey for those involved,” he said.

“This claim sits with the 616 others already determined around Australia and highlights our collective responsibility as custodians for this place we all love,” Cr Wilkie said.

Director Strategy and Environment Kim Rawlings welcomed the decision, labelling it a massive achievement for the Kabi Kabi Peoples.

“This has involved an incredible amount of work and is well deserved,” she said.

Ms Rawlings said the determination does not interfere with freehold property rights as freehold land is


“Under Australian Law, no private landowners would be impacted by this Federal Court ruling,” she said.

Ms Rawlings said a key part of Council’s new Corporate Plan is to reinforce a stronger commitment to improving our relationship with Kabi Kabi.

“Our staff continually work with the traditional custodians to inform our strategies, plans, and operational work with respect to cultural heritage and this will continue,” she said.

Cr Wilkie said this recognition strengthens our collective commitment to care for Noosa Shire as joint custodians.

How the west was

In this edited version of his final report, former Noosa Council CEO and chair of the Yurol Ringtail conservation project’s transition committee BRETT DE CHASTEL reveals for the first time the inside story of this remarkable environmental handover.

The Yurol Ringtail conservation project is one of the most significant environmental projects ever undertaken in Noosa. While complex in terms of its arrangements, it will result in approximately 2400 hectares of land being transferred into National Park, protecting it for future generations.

It is opportune to tell the story now, as June 2024 is a milestone date in this project. The transition committee which has been overseeing this project for five years has completed its role and the process for all of the land to become National Park tenure will be completed by the end of August.

The problems

In the context of conserving land for environmental purposes in the Noosa Shire, the problems to be solved were:

· Scale – for a range of reasons, including cost and the availability of relevant-size parcels of land, many conservation efforts are hampered by a lack of scale. Acquisitions are often made on a piecemeal basis and the multiple ownership of different parcels of land make it difficult to piece together a conservation project at scale. This is especially the case in South East Queensland where most land has already been subdivided and developed.

· Connectivity – conservation estates work best when they are connected to other conservation estates. On a regional perspective, the broader Noosa National Park needs to be connected to the Cooloola National Park to create connectivity for wildlife corridors.

· Cost – land in the Noosa region is some of the most expensive land outside of the SEQ inner urban areas. This means that acqui-

sition costs can be prohibitive to establish conservation estates of any scale. How is it possible to do so without breaking the bank?

· Holding the line - traditionally, acquiring and protecting land for environmental purposes has focused on“saving” parcels of land which still have high environmental values and have not been developed. This approach endeavours to “hold the line”. However, it does not address the opportunity to “push back” and restore land which has been cleared and used for other purposes.


For over 60 years, Noosa Parks Association (NPA) has worked to link Noosa National Park and Cooloola National Park estate, connecting Tin Can Bay in the north to Coolum in the south. In 1962, when NPA was formed, Noosa

Shire was home to only one of two national parks on the Sunshine Coast, and it was only 240 hectares in size. By 2015, the protected areas in the Noosa and Cooloola areas were nearing 90,000 hectares in total.

In 2011, following lobbying by NPA, the 2500-hectare Tewantin State Forest was converted

to the Tewantin National Park. The missing link to achieve the long-term vision was the 2400 hectares of Ringtail and Yurol State Forests.

Just over half of Ringtail andYurol State Forests was under long-term licence agreements granted by the State to privately owned HQPlantations (HQP). These were largely allocated to the growing of softwood plantation pine trees. The rest was publicly-owned state forest, some of which was in remnant condition while other areas were under native hardwood plantation.

In 2015, NPA put out feelers to HQP to determine if they might consider selling their Ringtail and Yurol interests. By early 2017, Brian Farmer, CEO of HQP and Michael Gloster, then-president of NPA, had reached an “in principle” agreement based on a lump sum payout of $3.5 million. The planets had begun to align. HQP owned and operated pine plantations on Yurol State Forest and Ringtail State Forest under a 99-year plantation licence with the Queensland Government. HQP had a longestablished commitment to ensuring the economic, environmental and social integrity of its plantation forests.

NPA laid the foundations for theYurol Ringtail Conservation Project by holding a series of one-on-one meetings with key government agencies at director general and ministerial level, and with the then Noosa Council mayor and CEO. The relevant government agencies and the Council all indicated a willingness to enter more detailed negotiations to acquire HQP’s interest.

An initial meeting of the potential parties in Brisbane in April 2017 was the first time that

all stakeholders realised that a multi-partner agreement might be forged, largely due to the prior work of NPA to get commitments on an individual stakeholder basis to work towards a common goal, which was to have all plantation timber harvested, and for that land to be revegetated with endemic species.

Complexity of stakeholders and land tenure

At this early stage of the project, there were six distinct stakeholders involved – three government departments (Agriculture and Fisheries, Parks and Wildlife, and Environment and Heritage Protection) a plantation forestry management company (HQP), a local council (Noosa) and a community based not-for-profit environment group (NPA).

All of them initially had different ideas about the project, but it is important to acknowledge the critical role of HQP in being willing to negotiate an outcome that was both commercially realistic and aligned with its sustainability and stewardship commitments. Their CEO at the time, Brian Farmer played a very important role in establishing a co-operative tone during the negotiations.

The complexity of the land holdings also brought challenges to the project, including:

· small areas of existing National Park (generally not connected to other National

· Park areas)

· State Forest areas in a pristine state

· State Forest areas that had specifically been planted with hardwood species for future harvesting

· Plantation licence areas within State Forest areas managed by HQP, with 85 years remaining until expiry

Establishing a Memorandum of Understanding

After six months of discussion in late 2017 all parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This allowed them to move from looking at the issues from their own perspective to agreeing on joint outcomes.

Hopefully Brett de Chastel’s detailed report and background to the project, an edited version of which appears in this edition, will go a long way towards rectifying that situation. Mr de Chastel was also at pains to recognise the work of Noosa Parks Association, and specifically NPA strategist and current vice-president Dr Michael Gloster, acknowledged as the architect of the multi-faceted deal, which involved three different State government departments, a private enterprise plantation forestry management company, a local council, a community based not-forprofit environment group and an Aboriginal People’s Corporation.

Mr de Chastel said: “It is important to recognise the significant role that Noosa Parks Association and Michael Gloster played in

this project. From developing the concept, laying the ground work with various stakeholders and agreeing to fund one third of the acquisition costs, NPA was one of the key players in achieving this outcome.

“This was one of the most significant projects I personally worked on while I was Noosa Council CEO. It will have a legacy for generations to come.”

Dr Gloster told Noosa Today: “Over the past 60 years Noosa Parks Association has been honing its skills in facilitating the formation of strategic partnerships, culminating in the success of the multi-partnership Yurol Ringtail Conservation Project. From here on in, only genuine long-term strategic partnerships between Noosa Council, multiple state government departments, environmental groups, tourism and business groups com-

munity groups, Kabi Kabi peoples, and at times private sector organisations, will get the job done in tackling the biggest issues Noosa is facing.

“Think community and lifestyle degradation, inadequate and fragmented public transport, dumbed-down town planning, over-tourism and day-tipper gridlock, and a river and lakes system in ecological decline. NPA is in awe of the magnificent ‘let’s get the job done’ innovations of all our project partners in the Yurol-Ringtail project, NPA stands ready to work with them again to tackle Noosa Shire’s looming key challenges.

“Where there is a will, there is always a way.”

National Park transition

From page 4

Importantly, the MOU established a transition committee (chaired by the Noosa Council CEO) which would act as a clearing house and co-ordinating group for project management, and was also used to gain commitment at a political level prior to the 2017 State election. The project in a nutshell

Following further negotiations, the parties entered into a series of formal contracts in September 2018:

· HQP would surrender its plantation licence interests in the Yurol Ringtail area in exchange for $3.5M in compensation. HQP would have five years to complete its final harvest of all commercial pine plantations in that area.

· The compensation for HQP was funded by DES (department in charge of Parks and Wildlife), Noosa Council and NPA on an equal share basis. NPA also had an agreement with Noosa Council to pay their one third share over a five-year period. All of those financial obligations have been met.

· Land parcels were be transferred into National Park over the next five years in a series of tranches as forestry activities were completed.

· All of the parties agreed to work co-operatively via the transition committee to achieve the agreed outcomes.

· There was also a requirement for Noosa Council and NPA to fund remediation work in the harvested pine plantation areas for five years once the harvesting had been completed, however, the agreement also recognised that Noosa Council and NPA could seek to find other parties who would contribute funding for restoration and if that was to occur, the Council and NPA could seek relief from their restoration obligations.

Making a good project even better

This project received a lot of attention when it was initiated, particularly in environmental circles, and hit the radar of Greenfleet CEO Wayne Wescott. Greenfleet is a longstanding Not-for-Profit organisation that delivers climate action for corporate and individual supporters. This funding is used to restore legally protected native forests and remediate land from an environmental perspective.

Greenfleet indicated that they were keen to be involved in this project and began several years of very patient negotiations with the State (primarily DES) and the Kabi Kabi Aboriginal Peoples Corporation to bring this to fruition. Greenfleet also entered discussions with Noosa Council and NPA as they needed to be parties to any variation to the previous agreement.

Ultimately, Greenfleet, DES, the Kabi Kabi Aboriginal Peoples Corporation, Council and NPA agreed that:

· Greenfleet would assume restoration responsibilities for all of the Yurol Ringtail project land that had been subject to harvesting – plantation and hardwood areas. On that basis, Council and NPA would not need to undertake any of their proposed restoration work.

· The State would grant Greenfleet the rights to carbon offsets they generated, enabling

them to attract funding from those who wished to purchase those carbon credits.

· Greenfleet entered into an Indigenous Land Use Agreement with the Kabi Kabi in relation to the subject land in September 2021.

As part of that ILUA agreement, Greenfleet agreed to provide job and training opportunities for the Kabi Kabi people and also committed to undertake cultural surveys on the land.

· The Greenfleet involvement in this project would result in a significant increase in restoration work than would otherwise have been achieved. The Greenfleet agreement covered restoration of the hardwood harvesting areas which were not previously subject to specific restoration works.

· Greenfleet also agreed to use the Noosa and District Landcare Group as its local partner to undertake tree planting activities.

The Environment Outcomes

At its heart, this is an environmental protec-

tion project. Studies undertaken in the initial assessment stage revealed there were 23 threatened species in this locality that were identified as endangered, ranging from the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly and Giant Barred Frog through to the iconic koala. Nine of those 23 threatened species were endemic to the SEQ Bioregion.

For astute political and marketing reasons, the koala became the signature species to be protected, with additional funding and support received due to it garnering more publicity. For example, the Body Shop philanthropic arm provided funding for tree planting, including koala-specific food trees. At those community tree planting days, the volunteers were much younger than usual. There were a lot of “selfies” taken with a koala at the community tree planting day.

By the end of this project, almost 2400 ha of land will be protected in perpetuity as National Park. This land will be preserved for future generations and create regional connectivity

between the Cooloola National Park and the Noosa National Park. It will provide important habitat for the koala and 22 other threatened species across our region. What next?

Greenfleet will be working with Noosa and District Landcare to complete their planting program over the next few years. This will see an additional 186,156 trees planted in addition to the 131,038 trees already planted. QPWS has also taken over responsibility for the land as National Park and will implement management practices including fire management in conjunction with Greenfleet. An Operations Co-ordination Group has been established between QPWS, Greenfleet and Landcare to assist in that process.

This project can also stand as an exemplar for other communities as to how stakeholders with very different constituencies and perspectives can successfully work together to achieve outcomes that benefit all parties.

AM for women’s educator

Dr Laurie Margaret Cowled of Noosaville felt immense pride to be recognised with a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in this year’s King’s Honours List for her significant service to philanthropy in the arts, education and health sectors, and to women, but also “rather naughty“ to receive an award for doing something which has brought her “so much joy“.

Over the past 20 years Dr Cowled, who will be 95 on 9 August, has gifted donations to artistic and educational institutions including NIDA and the Australian Ballet and scholarships to more than 250 women through these institutions and universities in Brisbane, Sydney and the Sunshine Coast.

Born a sheep farmer’s daughter in 1929 at Bethungra, near Cootamundra, at the start of the Great Depression, Laurie Cowled attended her local primary and secondary schools, walking across paddocks to get there, before going to work in the Commonwealth Bank, where she enjoyed a “worthwhile“ 35-year career, then 40 years ago, retired, married Ron Macnamara and moved to Noosa.

She chose career over marriage and children, at a time when women were forced to give up their jobs on their engagement to marry. In a surprising twist, through her philanthropic work, she has amassed a large and expanding family.

“I had wonderful jobs, a whole career at the bank, as you did in those days,“ Dr Cowled said.

“I became very attached to it. I had very good jobs, I was one of the first 30 women in the bank they gave equal opportunity to. I was very proud of that.

“I did everything back to front. I retired from the bank and got married and came up here to live with my husband.“

Sadly, 21 years later in 2005, Laurie’s husband, Ron, died, the couple having agreed the remaining spouse would leave their money to charity.

“I didn’t just want to leave it in a will,“ Dr Cowled said.

“I decided I wanted to educate young women and make up for the girls who missed out like I did.“

As a child she was interested in the arts but there was little scope for her ambitions in regional Australia.

“When I was growing up, of course, I wanted to be an artist or ballerina,“ she said.

“There was no one in Bethungra to tell me I had no talent at all,“ she laughs.

“I began to wonder how I could help cashstrapped country girls get educated.“

By chance she heard the Queensland Premier speaking on the radio about a proposed Queensland Community Fund that would enable people to invest and use their dividends into charity.

“I thought that was fantastic. I rang him the next day. That’s how I got started,“ she said.

Dr Cowled then got in touch with QUT and arranged to donate a block of land she had bought at Noosa Waters to the university on the priviso they sell it and match it dollar

for dollar. The Cowled Gift, a scholarship program, was born and is funded in perpetuity.

She now funds 16 undergraduates scholarships, all for women, at QUT.

Each of her many scholarships have resulted from a journey of their own.

Her husband, a pilot for more than 40 years had always wanted to be a doctor. This led her to provide scholarships to women in the area of health.

A keen bridge player, Dr Cowled was interested to hear of research at Neuroscience Research Australia on the benefits to the brain of bridge playing.

In no time she had a scholarship organised at NRA for a woman to do her PhD and has provided six more since.

It was a tribute to her sister Ruth that she established scholarships, the Ruth Cowled Memorial Scholarship and Ruth Cowled Design Fund, with NIDA. The sisters had been very close and travelled together in Europe as young women.

“My sister Ruth was very artistic. She went to teacher’s college. She was particularly interested in stage stuff and did stage designs when they put on plays at university,“ she said.

After further studies in Bristol, Ruth returned to Australia, where she suffered an aneurysm and died at the age of 25.

“That was very sad,“ she said.

“All the same I’ve had a lot of girls go through NIDA.“

After hearing of plans by University ofTechnology Sydney (UTS) to build an Indigenous regional college for Indigenous and non-Indigenous she became one of first donors to the project’s capital works.

More than five years on she also provides a scholarship at the college for an Indigenous female to undertake undergraduate studies.

“The first girl came from Kempsie. She was the first to go even to high school in her family, the first to go to university. Her brothers had no idea of going to university but did after she did and her mother went to college and became a councillor. It’s pebble in a pond,“ she said of the way in which some of her scholarships have delivered expanding benefits.

Dr Cowled oversees the scholarships and keeps in touch with many recipients.

“Some like to keep in touch, some don’t. I keep up with some of them and I really like to do that,“she said.

Among the five recipients of her scholarships with the Australian Ballet is Evie Ferris, an Indigenous ballet dancer who has since become a member of the Australian Ballet and is also a Wiggle.

“She’s doing very well with the Wiggles and the Ballet,“ she said.

“I’m very fond of her whole family.“

“To have these wonderful young people as part of my life when I should be sitting in a chair twiddling my thumbs is simply marvellous.

“I feel rather naughty that I’ve got this award because I’ve got so much joy out of all I’ve managed to do. It’s been a fantastic time.

“More than 250 young country women and Indigenous women from anywhere have been empowered by benefits of education or training that would might not otherwise have been available to them.

“I’ve come to believe education is the key for everyone especially Indigenous people.“

Dr Cowled is the principal patron of the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), a supporter of The Australian Ballet since 2005 Dr Cowled and has provided numerous scholarships across the Arts, Education, STEM, Agriculture and Health.

Her scholarships at QUT include the Cowled Gift, Women in Leadership scholarship, a learning potential fund for undergraduates and PhD students, rural nursing scholarships and Indigenous scholarships for business studies.

At USC she established a regional scholarship and Women in Engineering prize.

DrCowledprovidesapostgraduateresearch scholarship for brain research at Neuroscience Research Australia and several scholarships at UTS for indigenous female students.

She is also a benefactor of Queensland Ballet, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney Theatre Company, Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation, Room to Read’s Education Resilience Fund, Royal Flying Doctor Service, the Laurie Cowled International Scholarship for Costume, NIDA and has established the Ruth Cowled Memorial Scholarship, NIDA and Ruth Cowled Design Fund, NIDA.

Internationally she is a supporter of Indian health program and established Trust Banks in 2008 in West Timor.

Dr Cowled received an award for Outstanding Philanthropic Support for Higher Education, at the Business-Higher Education Round Table Awards in 2012 and the Premier’s Award for Queensland Seniors in 2010.

In her self-published book of the same name, Dr Cowled describes her philanthropy as her ‘joyous addiction’.

The Pomona cycling accident on 17 July 2021 left Lex fighting for life in

with a severe traumatic brain injury, a

scapula, ribs, shoulder blade and wrist, along with a major knee injury and a collapsed lung.

The traumatic crash took place after her bike clipped the wheel of a cyclist in front of her and she came off at high speeds of more than 65kms.

“I had to start a whole new life after the accident and I’m actually living my second life,“ Alexa said.

“I don’t have a memory of three years prior to the accident.“

When it came time for her 50m race on Tuesday 11 June, Alexa got into the zone by putting her headphones in and following her coach’s stretching directions.

“I looked at the time and I knew I could do the time but I was, of course, nervous as it’s a big thing to be able to make the Paralympics,“ she said.

The S9 100m freestyle world champion qualified for both the 50m freestyle on Tuesday and theWomen’s 100m freestyle multi-class on Thursday.

“I managed to whip out the times and I was so proud of myself,“ she said.

Her parents Belinda and Russell have been there every step of the way cheering her on.

Mum Belinda said in a TV interview after the race, “She wasn’t meant to live, let alone walk or talk. To see her, such a big personality, we’ve got such a different daughter back.“

“I love her personality. She’s funny, she’s crazy, but most importantly she’s fulfilling her dreams — what she wanted to do prior. She always wanted to go to the Olympics.”

Her dad, Russell, said she had to prepare for the swim both mentally and physically.

“We couldn’t be more proud of her. She lit up a nation this week,“ he said.

“It’s a world wide stage but she takes it in her stride. I think I was more nervous than she was. You’re just so nervous for her because any little mistake can cost her the spot. Because her brain doesn’t react quickly, when the gun goes off she’s always a little bit behind. So, she’s got a lot to make up for the minute she starts racing.“

Before the accident, Alexa was a triathlete and wanted to go to the Olympics.

“She was always an amazing swimmer. As a young girl she won four national titles as a swimmer,“ Russell said.

“She qualifies in the Paralympics for her physical damage on the right side of her body, but she also has a severe traumatic brain in-

jury, so she’s got two things to compete with.“

Russell said it was amazing to see the nation supporting Alexa’s journey to the Paralympics.

“I want to say a really big thank you for the Noosa community’s support when she had the accident and throughout the journey,“ he said.

“Without that community support, we wouldn’t have made it.“

Shark control policy in focus

Noosa Council is moving toward a policy on the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) Shark Control Program (SCP), specifically in relation to the use of nets and drumlines adjacent to Noosa beaches, in response to a motion put forward last month by Councillor Amelia Lorentson.

From a report prepared for Council’s general meeting on Monday Council officers said to date Council has not held a policy on the Shark Control Program and \therefore was unable to provide guidance to the general community on the matter.

However Council and the Noosa Biosphere Reserve Foundation (NBRF) had actively supported DAF in the delivery of SharkSmart programs, while Surf Lifesaving Queensland (Noosa) has supported the trials of alternative shark bite mitigations (drones) under the Queensland Shark Management Plan (2021–2025).

Local Governments play only a minor role in the delivery of the Queensland Shark Management Plan, primarily through providing assistance in the delivery of SharkSmart community awareness programs as requested by DAF, the report stated.

The willingness of Council to further assist the role out of SharkSmart programs, or where appropriate, alternative shark bite mitigation trials was discussed at a recent workshop held between Noosa councillors and DAF Shark Control Program staff.

Under a staff-recommended policy position Council would continue to support the DAF Shark Control Program (SCP) under the Queensland Shark Management Plan, with the vision of the SCP transitioning to lower by-catch potential alternatives in waters adjacent to the Noosa LGA; and Council would work alongside DAF to explore further opportunities to actively support SharkSmart educational programs, and alternative bite mitigation trials where appropriate.

At present outside of the DAF Shark Con-

trol Program, Council holds some responsibilities for managing shark risks to the community through marine animal (whale) carcass management and Bull shark (dangerous marine animals) advisory signage in Councilmaintained canals of Noosa Waters.

The report stated that leading up to the whale migration season in SEQ waters (May to September), community concerns were often reignited over the potential for marine mammal entanglements in shark control equipment off the northern (Noosa) Sunshine Coast nearshore waters.

“Some individuals and community groups have been actively campaigning for the removal of nets, and or drumlines for several years. Contrary, ocean users including tourism operators and members of the surfing community often demonstrate elevated concerns over the risks of shark attacks, particularly during periods of rain and high runoff (bull sharks) and during cooler months (when white sharks are more common in Sunshine Coast waters). Elevated shark risks concerns also occur during marine animal stranding events,” the report stated.

Queensland’s Shark Control Program start-

ed in 1962, following a number of fatal shark bites across the State and aims to reduce the risk of shark bites. Shark control measures used by DAF in local waters include a combination of nets and drumlines, drone surveys, SharkSmart community awareness programs and research and trials on alternative shark bite mitigation technologies (including drone trials).

The report revealed shark control equipment deployed within Laguna Bay, Noosa, regularly record the highest annual catch rates of bull sharks across the Queensland Shark Control Program (DAF 2024). During the annual humpback whale migration season from May to September, the chance of humpback whales (and other cetaceans) becoming entangled in shark nets increases and increased numbers of white sharks are also present within Sunshine Coast waters.

DAF advised at the recent Council workshop, that the State government are awaiting the outcomes of all current trials, along with recommendations from the Queensland Shark Control Program Scientific Working Group to inform the review of the Shark Management Plan. Any potential changes to the

SCP, or the use of alternate technologies will only occur following this process.

Final evaluation of the SharkSmart drone trial (including Noosa) will be completed by mid-2024 to inform the end of Management Plan review. The final evaluation of all trials will include an assessment of cost-effectiveness and suitability to local Queensland conditions. The end of Management Plan review will commence in late 2024 and will provide advice to government, in consultation with the SCP Scientific Working Group, on future options for the Program from July 2025 onwards. The report stated Council would pursue all opportunities to provide input and feedback into this process.

Council’s role in shark management under the Shark Control Program is limited to assisting DAF to educate the community to be SharkSmart, and supporting DAF and SLSQ to undertake drone trials as required, including the issuing of permits

In 2022, Noosa Council, the NBRF and DAF launched the SurfSmart community awareness program, to educate surfers and other ocean users on how to reduce the potential of shark interactions in our local waters. Noosa Council will continue to work closely with DAF in future SharkSmart community awareness programs under the Queensland Shark Management Plan.

Council and NBRF have recently partnered with the USC to undertake a Bull Shark Research Program across Noosa and Sunshine Coast waterways. Considering the presence of bull sharks within the Noosa Waters canal system is well known, the report recommended Council consider a marine animal warning advisory signage investigation within the Noosa Waters canal system at the completion of the research program, to align with public information standards set by other SEQ Councils.

A Council policy on the SCP will be further discussed at Council’s Ordinary meeting on Thursday.

Fire safety for students

With the cooler months approaching, the risk of fire hazards in homes increases.

At Sunshine Beach State School, education extends beyond the traditional curriculum to include vital safety lessons that can help prevent future tragedies.

Recently, Year One students were treated to an informative visit from the Noosa Fire Brigade, designed to instil fire safety awareness.

The firefighters shared a variety of essential messages, teaching the young students what to do in the event of a fire at home.

One student said, “They taught us how to keep safe and not to hide from them. If you hide from them, they will think you are safe, but you won’t be. They want us all to be safe.”

Year One teacher Sophie Ward said, “The students enjoyed practicing ‘Stop, Drop, and

Roll’ and ‘Get down low and go, go, go!’ The firefighters showed us all the special equipment they use when they are fighting fires. The students particularly enjoyed seeing the fire truck.”

“It was a fantastic learning experience and a great reminder that we all need to have working smoke alarms and an evacuation plan in place to keep our families safe. Thank you, Queensland Fire and Rescue, for keeping us safe!”

Principal Alison Welch said, “This initiative is a crucial part of our commitment to comprehensive education.”

“Fire safety is a life skill that we believe every student should master.

“We are incredibly grateful to the Noosa Fire Brigade for their dedication and effort in teaching our students how to stay safe.”

Noosa Council is excited to announce the Noosaville Foreshore Infrastructure Master Plan is almost complete.

This plan reflects the collective vision of over 400 community members and stakeholders, gathered during the first phase of consultation last year.

Now, we need your feedback to ensure we've got it right!

Funding welcomed, but more to be done

The Independent Member for Noosa, Sandy Bolton MP shared both the good and ‘not so good’ news in her budget reply speech in Queensland Parliament last week. On the specifics for Noosa, Ms Bolton was thankful that after delays to the Lake Macdonald refurbishment, $72 million has been allocated to get this work underway. While the official opening of Six Mile Creek Bridge #7 was celebrated, the need to create greater safety on Kin Kin Road remains, and a total of $37 million is in the budget for this.

“That these sums have been required due to inappropriate levels of heavy haulage through our villages is another example of our systems and processes failing. That we also require around $1 million for a pedestrian crossing on Factory Street, Pomona so that residents can safely traverse this road, is another example. This is missing from the budget, and we have requested the Minister to urgently reconsider this vital inclusion,” said Ms. Bolton.

$25 million has been allocated to widen Eumundi-Noosa Road from Emu Mountain Road to Beckman’s Road, however, this is where the second disappointment lay. After the completion of the Tewantin Bypass stage one (1), stage two (2) needed construction funding by the next budget to address the congestion, however the detailed design funding required to make that happen is nowhere to be seen.

“Regardless of the reasons for the delays that have led to this, whether on State’s or Noosa Council’s end, we have reiterated that the Minister must fast-track and fund the re-

quirements to get it back on track,” said Ms. Bolton.

Sandy shared that our businesses are receiving some assistance, with $650 off their electricity bills and increased access to initiatives in the Queensland Small Business Strategy including supports, natural disaster recovery and extra cash grants, however as she raised, they need a reduction in ‘red tape’ and contributors to the higher rents and costs associated.

On the education front, this week we celebrated the opening of the new $11.2 million hall at the Noosa District State High School, Pomona Campus with funding secured last budget. In the new budget, there is progress on the advanced manufacturing unit for Sunshine Beach State High School, with smaller amounts of funding spread across eight (8) Noosa Electorate schools for other purposes such as maintenance and essential upgrades.

Therewaswelcomednewsregardinghealth, with additional funding for the Queensland Ambulance Service which will result in twelve (12) extra paramedics for the Sunshine Coast, which Noosa will benefit from. In addition, for mental health, there was the extra requested youth co-responder team and a second mental health CORE team for our region. Sandy looks forward to finding in amongst the buckets of funds either grants or allocations for our Noosa Salvos to provide after-hours and weekend supports for both mental health and emergency accommodation.

“We also need co-location of services provided through the Better Care Together mental health program. There was no mention of

fairer funding models for our palliative care hospices which we have been fighting for, and even though the review is nearly complete, and increases have been provided to our Katie Rose Cottage Hospice, it is not enough,” said Ms. Bolton.

For our environment, there is $1.1 million for coastal walk upgrades in Noosa National Park, with the only extra funding being very targeted such as to improve firefighting capabilities. The budget also provided for ninety-eight (98) additional police officers for the Sunshine Coast, and welcomed news was the $1.12 billion allocated to community safety, with many of these measures aligning with the recommendations from Sandy’s former Youth Justice Reform Select Committee. They include the all-important much earlier interventions to support children from their earliest years through to preventions via educational engagement and health services from birth, as well family support coordinators and behavioural specialists in primary schools and early childhood coordinators. Especially appreciated has been the extra funding to Victim Assist to reduce the delays and to expand supports to victims of non-violent crimes and an expansion of the intensive case management program including on the Sunshine Coast.

“Overall, from the 60 recommendations from our Youth Justice Reform Select Committee report, between the Community Safety Bill that has been introduced, and this budget, it looks like over half have been addressed so far,” said Ms. Bolton.

‘Huge loss’

Sunshine Coast Mayor Rosanna Natoli has written to Premier Steven Miles seeking a meeting to discuss the regional economic impacts felt through the loss of Bonza Airlines, which she says could exceed $100 million.

Those affected include the airline’s 150 staff, as well as suppliers, cleaning, catering and support services and the many accommodation providers, restaurants, retailers, car rental and attractions, who had benefited from the record numbers of visitors brought in by Bonza.

Since the low-cost carrier started in January 2023, more than 490,000 additional passengers travelled through Sunshine Coast Airport representing more than 20 per cent of the airport’s activity.

In addition, the airline had established its headquarters on the Sunshine Coast.

Mayor Natoli said airline’s presence, along with the other major airlines, helped achieve a record number of interstate visitors last year.

“I have written to the Premier of Queensland to explain what this loss means to our region,” she said.

“The annual economic impact associated with the loss of Bonza is likely to exceed $100 million and will be felt hard, particularly by the region’s smaller businesses.

“Many of these businesses will now be joining the reported 60,000 creditors in a lengthy process with the hope of recouping some of their losses.

“The number of indirect jobs affected by the sudden closure is also likely to be significant with dozens of businesses impacted.

“The majority of products sold on board Bonza were supplied by 11 SEQbased suppliers.

“Whilst we are hopeful a solution might be found to allow Bonza to resume operations, the likelihood of this outcome now appears remote - which is why we need Queensland Government support now to mitigate the impacts on our community.”

Why not feed the birds?

Feeding wild birds draws mixed reaction from encouragement to absolute disapproval. Influential environmental, governmental and other agencies roundly condemn the practice, but this is unique to Australia.

In Europe and North America, by contrast, bird-feeding carries the blessing of bird lovers who do all they can to promote it.

Looking at the literature, the tide turned against wild bird feeding in the 1980s from encouragement to condemnation as historian Adjunct Professor Russell McGregor of James Cook University pointed out when he attempted last week at Noosa Parks Association’s Friday Forum to offer some tentative answers as to why that came about? He concludes the reason is more moral than scientific in basis.

Russell told attendees that for most the 20th century, Australian birders enjoyed unimpeded feeding of birds.

An article in Nature magazine in 1940s urged friendships with birds, observing bird feeding as a social exercise, he said.

Sydney lawyer and respected birder Harry Wilson in 1980 wrote in The Emu, a respected bird journal, of fostering friendships with fairy wrens in his backyard.

“This is common stuff in The Emu of those days,” Russell said.

Some birders used food to lure birds to their cameras but most of the time birders fed birds not for any ulterior motive but for sheer joy of interacting with wild creatures, he said.

Until the 1990s literature carried no hint of a need to justify the practice. It was just an observation as an unremarkable activity.

“The growth of an anti-feeding stance was gradual, piecemeal, harsh, beginning in 1980s, and intensifying thereafter,” he said.

“Many birders didn’t participate in it. Eminent birder Graham Pizzey continued to advocate feeding birds, after it became controversial.”

In 1985 Ellen McCullough in what is now Birdlife Australia magazine noted opinions regarding bird feeding ranged from disagreement with the practice to those who had to get in a bird sitter before going on holidays.

In the 1990s opposition to bird feeding stiffened, Russell said.

In 1996 The Bird Observer editor Zowie Wilson remarked that the European tradition of providing supplementary food to birds to survive icy winters was completely inappropriate for Australia and instead recommended attracting birds by planting native plants.

“Never allow birds to become dependent. Don’t feed them every day. Constant artificial feeding makes them fat and lazy,” she advised.

The tides were turning against feeding, but stopped short of total opposition.

A 1998 Bird watching field guide noted that there was debate over the matter of feeding birds in gardens, some regarding It as an “immoral act”, and preferred the more natural option of planting native bird-attracting trees and shrubs.

It counselled moderation, warned against

birds becoming dependent on human-provided food and “overweight suburban freeloaders”.

By 2000Wingspan magazine editor advised readers the best source of feed for native birds was native plants, but if they wanted to feed them to do so on adhoc basis so they didn’t become dependent, Russell said.

Birdlife Australia never had a formal policy on bird feeding but since the 1990s discouraged the practice.

Russell said non-feeding of birds was much stronger in non-birding circles and noted ecologist Daryl Jones agreed with his assessment.

In the 1980s and 90s, in contrast, Europe and America bird feeding was increasingly encouraged.

One possible explanation for the Australian response was an awareness of avian disease and feeding as an agent of transmission of avian disease, Russell said. But this was known before the 1980s, just before tide on attitudes began to turn.

“There was no evidence of an outbreak around the 1980s nor evidence of it in birding literature,” he said.

The knowledge of avian disease was more confined to veterinarian literature, and while the role of feeding and spreading disease has become a factor against feeding more recently that was not the case in 1980s. The big issue in 1990s was dependency. There were outbreaks of avian disease overseas too but the response there was to inform the public to be more careful.

Opinions were mixed. Graham Pizzey warned against dependency in his book A Garden of Birds, but also gave advice on how to feed birds.

Russell concluded it was a puzzle with no single factor, but his explanation lends something to a purest conception of nature associated with the wilderness movement, “celebrating wilderness patches of the planet that have escaped the hand of humankind”.

He said the most strident opposition came from wilderness movements worldwide but the rest of the world did not experience the backlash against feeding.

The answers lie more in the realms of morals than science. “Some birders regard the act as an immoral act,” he said.

A retired avian veterinarian in the audience suggested the sway of opinion may have resulted from an increased knowledge of nutrition and disease resulting from poor nutritional feeding, but Russell discounted this.

The same issues of avian nutrition were met overseas but the response was to get better food,” he said. “Sectors in Australia were against feeding altogether.

There was no good advice to Australian people where feeding overseas had the support of official bodies, he said. “That advice wasn’t getting through because of that official opposition”.

Russell’s next book, Enchantment by Birds: A history of birdwatching in 22 species, will be published by Scribe next February. It has something to say about bird feeding.

Bailey to represent nation

WorldSkills Australia competitor Bailey Loenneker, a fourth-year refrigeration apprentice from Noosa, will represent Australia at the international tournament in France this year.

The refrigeration industry will be among over 30 trades represented at the 47th WorldSkills International tournament, a global movement dedicated to promoting the skills excellence of young tradespeople playing a crucial role in the visibility, development, and empowerment of tomorrow’s experts.

Bailey will be joined by his expert Carl Balke to compete in the refrigeration and air conditioning category on the global stage in Lyon, France in September to compete against the best young apprentices in the world.

The contingent of apprentices, trainees, and students, known as the Skillaroos, is the largest delegation of competitors, trainers, officials, and team management ever sent to an International Competition.

Bailey, the Skillaroo for Refrigeration, shares how the competition has ignited his passion for skills development.

“Through WorldSkills, I have developed a growing passion for developing the skills I have learned. Competing on a national level and meeting like-minded individuals has really sparked my interest,” he said.

“It’s about more than just competing; it’s about personal growth and professional development.“

Bailey highlights the confidence he has gained through recently competing in the WorldSkills Regional and National competitions to qualify for internationals.

“Each competition has built my confidence. It’s not just about winning.WorldSkills is about the experience and the education that comes with it. My confidence has grown immensely, and it’s great to have supportive people around me who believe in what I’m doing.“

“Competing in WorldSkills is thrilling and fun, but the best part is the time management,

efficiency, and practical skills that I use in my job – these are all things I’ve honed through WorldSkills.”

Looking ahead, Bailey is optimistic about his future.

“I’m excited to see where it takes me,“ he said.

“The skills and connections I’ve made will be invaluable for my career. I hope to continue growing and maybe help others the way I’ve been helped.

“WorldSkills has given me a strong professional and personal foundation for the future, and I’m looking forward to building on it.“

Refrigeration represents a crucial yet often overlooked trade. Despite the vital role refrigeration tradespeople play in maintaining the cold chain essential for food safety, healthcare, comfort cooling, air quality, and numerous industrial processes, their numbers are significantly lower compared to other trades on offer.

This is one of the reasons that the WorldSkillsAustraliainitiativeissupportedbyRefrigerant Reclaim Australia (RRA) and like-minded organisations committed to the promotion and development of skills excellence in Australia.

Kylie from Refrigerant Reclaim Australia

said this disparity highlights the need to elevate the profile of refrigeration professionals, by increasing awareness and appreciation for their specialised skills.

“Our longstanding partnership supporting WorldSkills helps to promote the importance of refrigeration tradespeople and underscores their contribution to public health, safety, and the economy,” Kylie said.

Carl, WorldSkills Australia Expert, emphasises the transformative impact of the competition on young apprentices and highlights the importance of the competition in promoting refrigeration apprenticeships to the wider sector.

“The competition is not only great for the young apprentices coming through, but it also lifts the profile of refrigeration apprentices which historically has remained unseen,” he said.

In addition to raising the profile of refrigeration apprentices, Carl said the main driver for him to train and lead Skillaroos participants is seeing the young people grow.

“They start unsure, but by the end of the program, they’re transformed, and they go on to do great things,” he said.

“Through the competition, they develop invaluable soft skills that they will continue to use for the rest of their lives. They emerge with self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment.“

“We support each other, whether it’s training together or offering a helping hand. This sense of community is one of the best parts of WorldSkills,“ Carl said.

Through competitions, training, and community building, WorldSkills empowers young people to achieve their best and build a strong foundation for their future careers.

50 Shades of Green launch

Tourism Noosa has launched 50 Shades of Green, a comprehensive guide designed to assist event organisers in achieving their sustainability objectives while hosting events in Noosa.

This innovative resource aims to strike a balance between economic prosperity, social responsibility, cultural preservation, and environmental stewardship.

The 50 Shades of Green guide has been meticulously curated to align with the various phases of event planning, including pre-event, during-event, and post-event actions.

Organisers can navigate through the guide either sequentially, from Shade 1 to Shade 50, or directly to the shade most pertinent to their event’s sustainability needs. Each shade provides an introduction to the topic, actionable steps, and a wealth of useful tips and resources.

“With the launch of 50 Shades of Green, Tourism Noosa reaffirms its commitment to fostering sustainable practices within our local event industry,“ said Tourism Noosa chief executive officer Sharon Raguse.

“This guide serves as a roadmap for all event organisers, offering practical strategies to minimise environmental impacts while maximising the positive contributions of their events to the community.“

One of the distinguishing features of the guide is its dynamic nature. The online platform will regularly update links, tools, and supplementary information to ensure event organisers have access to the latest, most relevant resources tailored to the Noosa region.

“We recognise that sustainability is an evolving journey, and our aim is to provide local event organisers with the best, tailored resources at their fingertips,“ Tourism Noosa’s tourism sustainability manager Juanita TerryBloomfield said.

“By continually updating the guide, we empower organisers to stay ahead of the curve

and implement cutting-edge sustainable practices in their events, with the end goal to become zero emissions, zero waste and minimal community impact “ Ms Terry-Bloomfield said..

Tourism Noosa events manager Lee Huber said, “Tourism Noosa’s event funding program supports a diverse portfolio of tourism events by enhancing existing events and helping emerging events in Noosa so they may be enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. Events sponsored by Tourism Noosa must demonstrate progress and commitment to being environmentally sustainable.

“Utilising our Sustainable Events Criteria auditing tool and checklist for benchmarking each year, 50 Shades will event organisers additional support to navigate this challenge with greater confidence”.

50 Shades of Green represents a collaborative effort between Tourism Noosa, local stakeholders, and industry experts, reflecting a shared commitment to preserving Noosa’s natural beauty and cultural heritage for future generations.

In congratulating Tourism Noosa, festival organiser for the Noosa Festival of Surfing John Findlay said, “I commend Tourism Noosa for

the launch of 50 Shades of Green.

“This guide is an invaluable resource for event organisers, providing practical solutions to enhance sustainability efforts in Noosa.

“As an event organiser, each year we strive to make our event more memorable for our visitors and for the community.

“Tips provided in this guide will further assist us on our journey to becoming more environmentally responsible.”

The guide is now available online at

A perfect adios for Aido

Surfers paddle out beyond the break and form a circle for several reasons: it can be to seek blessing for an event, to protest an action that may damage our revered coastline, or to celebrate the life of a surfer who has passed.

Occasionally it can be all three at once. Such was the case when more than 100 Noosa surfers of all ages gathered at Tea Tree Bay last Friday in perfect weather to give a surfer’s farewell to Adrian “Aido” Spelt.

The day before it had been the turn of the musician tribe and the general community when more than 300 gathered riverside on another perfect Noosa winter day to celebrate in song the life of a man who touched so many lives in his 73 years. The A-list of local musos, including several iterations of Aido’s band The SandFlys, The Freddies, the Charles-Camilleri Connection, Harii Bandhu and folkie Brendan Dowd, played a magnificent two-hour set, culminating in the whole lineup joining in a rousing Stand By Me.

Local music guru Barry Charles posted: “I’ll never forget this morning. What a beautiful but sad experience it was for me and I’m sure for many others. To lose such a very special person who meant so much to many in our community, I felt his spirit while I was singing, and the emotion was overwhelming at times.”

Emotions were still running high when the surfing community gathered atTeaTree (Aido’s favourite point break) the next day. For participants and observers it was another happy/sad occasion. We were there to bless Aido for a life well lived, and to bless his family in their grief; we were there to protest him going too soon; and we were there to celebrate every moment we got to share with him. Vale Aido. – Phil J All paddle-out photos courtesy of Melissa Hoareau Photography.

Be dazzled

New chamber music concert series Coastal Cadenzas has already established itself as Noosa’s most premium musical experience.

Locals snapped up tickets for the inaugural performance Tres Magnifique, where violinist and former QSO leader Warwick Adeney dazzled his audience with virtuosity and passion.

Excitement is building for the next event featuring Judit Molnar, an A-list soprano who trained in Hungary and now calls Queensland home.

Molnar is a versatile musician with an international portfolio career performing operas, oratorios, and solo works with numerous elite ensembles. On a smaller scale, she is often on stage singing baroque works with the Arioso Chamber Ensemble.

Upcoming concert The Dawn Dressed in White will treat audiences to a light afternoon of popular classics for clarinet and soprano - a most agreeable pairing, as the purity of the clarinet almost sounds like singing.

Schubert’s Shepherd on the Rock and Spohr’s Six German Lieder are the big numbers, contrasted by a pleasant selection of popular favourites by Mozart, Bizet, Leoncavallo, Puccini, Vaughan-Williams and some novel arrangements prepared especially for this concert.

On keys once again is the legendary Janet Brewer, who has tirelessly supported Sunshine Coast music for decades.

Coastal Cadenzas aims to be an enduring cultural institution like no other in the region, thanks to the unique experience of artistic director Sacha Gibbs-McPhee.While studying at the famous Royal Academy of Music in London, Sacha was immersed in the music of his tradition and gained a mastery of clarinet technique. He is quickly

gaining prestige as one of Australia’s leading chamber musicians, and has ambitions to bring world class performers together to entertain his beloved local community in Noosa, his home town since childhood.

Tickets can be purchased online at and at the door. Show starts 3pm on 23 June at Good Shepherd Church, Noosaville and 3pm on 7 July at the CCSA Hall, Caloundra.

Don’t miss All Abilities Expo coming up soon

Noosa Council is hosting the THRIVE All Abilities Expo on Tuesday 25 June from 1-3pm at the Noosa Leisure Centre to connect individuals of all abilities, their families, and caregivers with local disability services, supportive networks, and programs that assist with everyday well-being and resilience.

Attendees will learn about emergency planning, mental health for disaster resilience, nutrition for well-being, and available support services, all while enjoying live music, giveaways, free afternoon tea, yoga, and sensory crafts.

An Auslan Interpreter from Deaf Connect will be on site for all scheduled talks and the All Abilities Yoga session.

Council’s Community Development Coordinator, Cheryl Pattison, said the event was about enhancing the well-being and disaster preparedness for individuals of all abilities by providing them with the opportunities and resources they need to thrive in our community.

Local area provider Sian Parris, from the Endeavour Foundation Learning and Lifestyle Centre, was thrilled to have the All Abilities Expo right opposite the Centre.

“An Expo is a great way to open conversations with our people and caregivers, allowing them to expand their community participation and meet new people,” she said.

“At our Learning and Lifestyle Centre, we realise the importance of emergency preparedness, and our people regularly participate in fire drills, which also include natural disaster emergencies.”

The THRIVE All Abilities Expo is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their friends and family to explore a variety of services and programs that cater to the unique needs of the disability community.

Electrify it all and save

It was a 15-minute intense hailstorm that started Mark Purcell on his Electrify Everything journey.

In January 2020 a severe storm with golf ball sized hailstones swept through Canberra, damaging 44,500 cars. Mark’s car was one of them.

Faced with having to buy a new car, Mark’s priority was technology, and the Tesla met this criterion with features not seen in other cars in the same price range. The fact that it was electric, cost less to run, and was kinder on the environment weren’t really on his radar at this stage.

Once Mark had his new Tesla, he realised that it would make sense to install household solar to charge the car. The panels started to save the family across their electricity needs. Then after a $4000 gas bill over winter the family decided to also replace all their gas appliances to take advantage of both the renewable electricity and a government rebate for discontinuing gas. This included replacing their gas heater with split system air conditioning, their gas stove with an induction cooktop, and their gas hot water with a heat pump hot water system.

Immediately, they began to see significant savings on their energy bills.

Then came the family’s move to Noosa so they decided to take on the electrify everything challenge for a second time. But this time was much easier as Mark had learnt from doing the first time around. Although there were still obstacles. For instance, it took six months to

find a tradie that was familiar with heat pump technology and could install it for him.

The first step in their new Noosa home was to extend the modest roof solar system to increase its capacity, and this time Mark added a battery to his home. This stores energy gener-

ated during the day and Mark sells it back to the grid when the energy wholesale price is at it’s peak.

He has also set up a home automation system, monitored over his phone, to optimise the most cost-effective times for using energy

for his car, pool pump etc. Most quarters they actually earn money on their electricity bill. As in their previous home, they have replaced all the gas appliances.

Mark knows everyone’s experience and ability to make the big switch to electrifying everything will be different. One of the first steps might be to have a look at ZEN’s online Rewiring Noosa toolkit (zeroemissionsnoosa. After that, Mark believes that the biggest bang for the buck is definitely solar panels. That’s an early win that will pay itself off in 2 -3 years. Heat pumps can also lead to big savings. Many of us aren’t aware that hot water can be half of the energy consumption in a household.

But also people can initially look to replace appliances at the end of their life. As Mark says, “When your car is going, think about alternatives like an electric car…when you’re redoing your hot water system look for electric alternatives.”

Starting as a novice a couple of years ago, Mark is now a true convert. He’s been net carbon zero for the last two years. As deputy chair for Zero Emissions Noosa (ZEN), he often talks to community groups about his experience and how others can also save money and do their bit for climate change through electrification. He hopes to contribute to Rewiring Noosa.

ZEN also promotes energy efficiency options for renters and strata residents. To learn more, visit or

The Guide



Nine, Monday, 7.30pm


ABC TV, Saturday, 7.30pm

Unabashedly twee and wholesome, this British crime procedural staple following a savvy priest sits cosily in an afternoon slot in its homeland. It’s an entertaining, 1960s-set distraction that leaves witty crumbs and clues for its loyal viewers to nibble on. Tonight marks the end of its 10th season, with a finale that shakes things up and will leave some avid watchers scratching their heads. In “The Serpent Within”, Inspector Sullivan is arrested, derailing his plans to leave Kembleford. While not as cosy as usual, fans can rest assured star Mark Williams (pictured) will return for season 11 as the lovable, crime-solving man of God.

Friday, June 21

Eminent journalist Tracy Grimshaw returns to our screens alongside medical expert Dr Nick Coatsworth for this docuseries that explores the limits of human health and longevity. It sees eight participants embark on a 12-week journey looking at health and ageing, seeking the secret to turning back their biological age as they undergo medical tests to determine ways they can live longer. Tonight’s second episode sees Dr Nick lead TheBlock’s Liberty and Eliza through the chilling experience of cryotherapy. Amid subzero temperatures, they delve into the potential health benefits for the human body.


Seven, Sunday, 7pm

Although having more than a few similarities to Nine juggernaut The Block(and Seven’s HouseRules), this house reno offering is actually based on an NZ format. Either way, the tried and true formula of “everyday Aussies” renovating houses, while expert judges look on – with clashes, competition and Dr Chris Brown thrown into the mix – is proving popular. Tonight, a storm causes chaos with just hours to go on the final renovation in Queensland. When the sun comes out for judges Rosie Morley, Simon Cohen and Lana Taylor (pictured from left with Brown), what they see impresses and horrifies them in equal measure.

ABC TV (2) SBS (3)


ABC TV, Tuesday, 8.50pm

This smart, entertaining series delves into what it means to be human, looking at a range of scientific topics from an everyday point of view. Myf Warhurst and Sammy J have already investigated our emotions, senses and intelligence. Tonight’s episode is the first of two in which Matt Okine (pictured) explores the world of fertility, learning what can be done to improve our chances of conceiving. It’s an eye-opening investigation (and not just thanks to the comedian’s on-theme costume) as Okine hits the lab to discover the latest in reproductive technology and joins a group of would-be fathers looking to improve their sperm counts.

EV interest ‘electrifies’

Thousands wandered up and down Sunshine Beach Road, Noosa Junction last Sunday on a spectacular sun-fuelled winter’s morning to view the latest in everything electric from luxury vehicles to electrifying homes and businesses at the annual EV and Electrify Everything Expo.

More than 60 exhibitors showcases EVs and e-bikes to solar panels, household batteries, heat pumps, pool heating and pumps, induction cookers and more, Zero Emissions Noosa chair Anne Kennedy said.

Among the exhibitors was Ian and Carlia Wilson who brought with them their Huonpine hulled 1940s built electric boat. Powered by a Bellmarine 3kw Eco Line 48V electric motor, the vessel can travel a comfortable 4knots/ hr for about seven hours along the river or an hour and a half ‘flat out’.

Tim Arndt travelled from Sydney to promote the benefits of the Australian-made FONZ electric motorbike. Local resident Dan, who has owned one for two years“loves it”. Not only has he adorned its side panels with his own artwork, Dan said it had plenty of pep to scale the hinterland hills, its design attracted lots of attention and it was an easy four-hour charge to fuel.

UQ Racing Formula SAE team, currently the number one electric racing car team in Australia, were proud to promote their studentdesigned and built, 600-watt powered vehicle. Each year various universities build the racing cars as an extracurricular activity and pit them against each other.

Kieran Harvey of Team Arrow told visitors about their solar-powered entry in the Darwin to Adelaide race. Travelling 600km on a single battery the one-person vehicle performed well on solar-powered panels on its 3000km journey, he said.

Many people came to the expo to learn about the latest in EV vehicles and test drive some e-bikes.

Ecotekk’s Stuart Whitney, who has been selling e-bikes in Noosa for the past decade, said people of all ages were looking at e-bikes for a range of health and cost effective reasons.

“We’re getting people referred from doctors for the health benefits, both mental and physical,” he said. “People are transitioning to enjoying cycling without maximum effort. We’re getting families who want bikes to get the kids to school instead of using cars.”

Tewantin Noosa RSL Club: A pillar of the community

At the heart of Tewantin and Noosa lies the Tewantin Noosa RSL, an organisation renowned for its unwavering commitment to the wellbeing and development of the local community.

This organisation plays a crucial role in supporting local groups, schools, and organizations that benefit the community, alongside a steadfast dedication to assisting veterans.

The Tewantin Noosa RSL’s recent initiatives highlight the breadth of its support.

A notable example is their donation to the Yandina 128 Army Cadets, aiding in the purchase of a club trailer. This contribution is not merely a gesture; it is an investment in the future leaders of the community. The Yandina Cadets, like many youth organisations supported by the RSL, provide invaluable training and life skills that will benefit society for years to come.

Beyond their youth-focused efforts, the Tewantin Noosa RSL’s support for veteran service organisations remains a cornerstone of their mission. The Tewantin Noosa RSL Club have confirmed financial support for veteran organisation such as Mates 4 Mates, Soldier On, and Legacy, among others, to ensure veterans receive comprehensive support.

These partnerships facilitate a range of services, from mental health support to physical

rehabilitation, reflecting a holistic approach to veteran care. Closer to home, the Tewantin Noosa Sub-Branch benefits from the Clubs ongoing support which includes providing prem-

ises for the veterans Men’s Shed and meeting space in the CWA Hall for the Vietnam Veterans, and Veterans Yoga.

The Club recognises that these programs

are essential in providing veterans with a sense of comradery, belonging and purpose, aiding in their transition to civilian life and fostering enduring friendships.

The Tewantin Noosa RSL Club is not just an organisation; it is a vital part of the community’s fabric.

Their efforts are directed towards creating a supportive, vibrant, and inclusive community for all. Whether through supporting local cadets, aiding veteran service organisations, or providing a haven for veterans, the RSL continues to make a significant positive impact.

Recently the Club began hosting a Veterans Appreciation Day lunch, with the next event scheduled for Tuesday 16 July. If you are a veteran and are interested in joining other likeminded veterans over a meal and a possible beer or two, please contact the Club to register your interest addressed to Amanda at

As the community looks to the future, the Tewantin Noosa RSL Club stands as a beacon of support for both the community and veterans.

They invite everyone to join in their mission, engage with their programs, and help build a stronger, more united community. For further information on how to get involved or support their initiatives, visit the Tewantin Noosa RSL. Together, we can continue to make a difference.

No new policy

Is it true that the late, great Spike Milligan wrote the policy for nuclear power proponents – “We haven’t got a plan so nothing can go wrong doesn’t it”? Just asking for new clear details, isn’t it?

Focus on play

Watching Thursday, Friday nights NRL games and now looking forward to this afternoon Newcastle Knights v Penrith Panthers I am hoping the commentary during and after the game is not about who is going to be chosen for the Blues next State Of Origin game. It appears some of the players are applying for a position on the NSW Blues team, instead of playing to keep their team in the run for the 2024 Premiership.

Not a good look for their teammates, coach and supporters who with their weekly support assist in paying their excellent income.

During the 2023 State of Origin players received $30,000 per match.

To my thinking their talents and drawing of spectators and TV Viewing was well deserved.

But let’s not forget the penalties caused by injuries inflicted on the players and their home teams. Which in some cases affected that team’s final position in the 2023 Premier League.

I hope those players playing today play for today and their team and spectators and not just for a Blue State Of Origin Shirt (Jersey).

Nuclear makes sense

Steve Hall’s (NT 14/6) criticism of Ted O’Brien and the Coalition for the use of nuclear power as part of our energy mix is uninformed.

There are two main types of nuclear technology, large and small.

Type 1 are very large structures. The 360 GW reactor at Calder Hall in the UK which opened in 1956 was the world’s first. The latest in the UK is the 3200 MW Hinkley Point C, construction started in 2017 with first power expected in 2025. Its estimated cost is 46 billion UK Pounds (88 billion Australian dollars).

Type 2 are Small Modular Reactors (SMR’s) with outputs of 300 MW or less. The US military have been using SMR’s for

60 years.

Nuclear power from SMR’s has revolutionised the US Navy. SMR’s are ideal for vessels which need to be at sea for long periods of time particularly submarines and aircraft carriers.

The US Nimitz Class Aircraft Carriers are powered by two SMR nuclear reactors. The crew of about 4700 personnel live and work next to the nuclear reactors. The reactors only need to be refuelled once in 50


SMR’s are completely safe. Safety records on board the nuclear US ships show there has not been one radiation accident over a period of more than 50 years.

Australia has the largest deposit of uranium in the world at Olympic Dam in South Australia. Ted O’Brien is correct. Nuclear must be part of our energy mix.

Salty crew at Boiling Pot

An enthusiastic group of aspiring surfers caught a wave of inspiration with Noosa Salty Sisters at the Boiling Pot Brewing Co last weekend.

The event, celebrating the vibrant surfing community, featured an inspiring talk by guest speakers Peppie Simpson and Kirra Molnar, both local surfing champions and surf instructors with heavy involvement in surf community initiatives.

Peppie said afterwards: “A great group of girls doing some very positive things for women and surfing”.

Spencer’s love for the environment

Thirteen-year-old conservationist, environmental educator and photographer

Spencer Hitchen has spent more than half of his life learning from many local, knowledgeable environmentalists.

Spencer’s thirst for knowledge about the natural world far exceeded the knowledge his parents could provide from books and the internet. They felt great relief when they found Noosa Parks Association’s Friday Environment Forum where members welcomed him with open arms, answering his endless questions about nature.

On 28 June Spencer will lead an intergenerational fun forum for youth and adults where attendees can learn from him and his mentors. Spencer will speak about his conservation journey and chair a panel discussion with young conservationists and his environmental heroes. There will be short interpretive walks about botany, birds, insects and fungi with local experts, workshops and stalls with conservation groups from across the Coast.

Spencer wants everyone to be inspired to Observe, Learn, Protect- their Local Environment. “I think all kids and adults love the environment and want to protect it, they just need a spark, an idea, to get started,” he said.

Meet the Bird Observers in the carpark at 8.30am to learn about the birds of Wallace Park or begin with morning tea at 10am whilst browsing the exhibits at the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville. Expert presentations for all ages are from 10.30am to 12pm. Entry is by donation by ‘Tap & Go’ on the day. All welcome.

NoosaRegionalGallerytransformsintoasweet pastel wonderland for the return of Imaginate, Noosa’s biennial children’s exhibition event.

Step into the magical world of Sunshine Daydream, a fantastical world created by Australian artists Pip and Pop.

Discover an enchanted dreamlike place; a land of vibrant plant life swirling in a pastel rainbow.

A place where art and nature collide, igniting the senses to spark the curiosity of visitors young and old alike.

Inspired by the beautiful flora found in Noosa’s Biosphere Reserve, Imaginate: Sunshine Daydream provides an exciting opportunity for visitors to become immersed within a fantastical landscape where imagination and joy rule.

Noosa Regional Gallery’s Education Public Programs officer Brooke Bowtell said, “Australian artist Tanya Schultz and her team create colour-saturated installations from an eclectic array of everyday materials including candy, modelling clay, crystals, and beads.”

“In their excess, these wondrous installations resonate with audiences as joyfully optimistic.”

Under the pseudonym of Pip and Pop, Tanya draws inspiration from fictional geographies and paradise mythologies described in folktales, literature, and cinema.

“For Sunshine Daydream however,” says Brooke, who has curated this year’s third iteration of the popular children’s biennale at the Gallery; “we wanted to reflect upon the beautiful flora found in Noosa’s own Biosphere Reserve and celebrate its incredible uniqueness.”

Pip and Pop’s sensational artworks are internationally renowned, their installations appearing in galleries and museums all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Asia, USA, UAE, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, UK, and Mexico.

QUINN, Gloria Francis Jean

Born Charleville Late of Sunshine Beach

We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Gloria on 14/06/2024. Gloria will be remembered for her love of dancing, endless affection for ‘The Sound of Music’, and her unwavering sweet tooth.

Family and friends are invited to join us as we say goodbye on Tuesday June 25 at 10am at Drysdale Funerals 27 Butler St, Tewantin QLD.

Australian artist Tanya Schultz and her team create colour-saturated installations.

With assistance from Friends Noosa Regional Gallery and First 5 Forever, Imaginate: Sunshine Daydream has been made available free of charge to all visitors throughout the winter school holidays.

Noosa Regional Gallery director Michael Brennan said, “It was important to us these school holidays to create an exciting event that’s accessible to all.”

“Parents are always looking for opportunities to entertain and create lasting memories with their children, and we’d like to think that Imaginate certainly meets this brief. It’s the perfect opportunity to spark curiosity and share the joy of possibilities.”

IMAGINATE: SUNSHINE DAYDREAM will run from 15 June to 7 July 2024. Entry to the exhibition and creative-making spaces is free.

miss One Act Play

Now in it’s 47th year, Noosa Arts Theatre is once again set to present their One Act Play Festival.

Every year this competition attracts entries from all over the country and overseas.

From nearly 100 entries this year, a panel of readers select 10 out of which three are judged the finalists.

These are then performed for the first time and a professional judge chooses the best play with second and third prizes.

There is also an audience choice award plus awards for best actor, director and ensemble.

This year they have three excellent new works to perform. They are in no particular order:

The Tiniest of Things – written by Rob Selzer and directed by Liza Park.

Bill Markus is a popular professor in line for the Nobel Prize. But his trip to Stockholm is put in jeopardy when he is called to account for an off-the-cuff, offensive remark. He sees no harm in it but Jess Green, law student and staunch protector of hu-

man rights thinks otherwise! Party Conversations– written by Sheree Anne Veysey and directed by Sue Clapham. At a friend’s engagement party Abbie meets a young woman crying in the bathroom. The conversation that results proves to be more than either of them anticipated. Magpies – written by Michael Olsen and directed by Maria Karambelas.

After Uncle Gio’s funeral, his nieces, Rosa and Carmela descend on his house in search of his secret“sacco”, his hidden stash of cash. Neither of them are in Uncle Gio’s will. Rosa and Carmela drag along their husbands. Colin and Derek. to help them with their search. Will the two sisters find anything?

Last year’s One Act Play festival had a play called The Magpies but this is not the same play, in case anyone was wondering. The season kicks off on 4 July and runs for eight performances until 14 July. Book your tickets at or call the theatre on (07) 9449 9343, Tuesday to Friday between 10am and 2pm.

Girl at the fall of the wall

They are as young as she is, those who now scramble up the wall—an activity which just the other day would have seen them shot. Ahead, a crane raises its steel arm and comes crashing down on a section of concrete. The Brandenburg Gate appears ghostlike through the rain beyond the wall, on the east side… A gust of wind threatens the umbrellas of those who hope to hold back the weeping November sky. People coalesce, thousands of raincoats glimmering in the floodlit night … Everyone in the city, East and West, wants to be here, at die Mauer, at this moment. A young man with a pickaxe hacks at the concrete, chipping away. ‘Passt auf!’Watch out!

Thus begins Sunshine Coast academic and author Shelley Davidow’s remarkable new novel, The Girl With The Violin.

This is a work of fiction but the events, the mood of the crowd and the fear Davidow describes are as real to her now as they were that November night in Berlin in 1989, the night the wall came down, because the author was there, a frightened, trembling teenager a long way from home and inadvertently, accidentally, in the front row of history.

Screenshots from some blurry salvaged film shot that night, and now on Davidow’s website, show a pretty girl with rain-tangled hair, masking her fear with a faint, brave smile to camera. The image is enough to bring a tear to the eye of a father of adventurous girls, but it is not nearly as powerful as the author’s description, drawn from a gulf of half a Biblical lifetime, during which time she learnt how to write but not how to forget.

Seeing the fall of the wall through the eyes of her protagonist, Susanna, Davidow deftly draws us into the larger event unfolding around her, while building our interest in who she is and why she is there at the wall.

She writes: “People stack against each other like cards with no air between. She has never been in such a crowd. Her life in Australia has been defined by space and air and light. But now it’s almost too hard to breathe. People crush her from behind, from in front. She tries to suck in air and her ribs don’t expand … Will she die here in front of the Berlin Wall, a twenty-year-old Jewish Australian violin student, trampled to death by a stampeding crowd? It would make some kind of sense.”

We learn a lot about Susanna in these opening chapters, even down to her minor abnormalities, such as a haematoma on her left ring finger, an extra vertebrae (L6) and a strange extra half-rib. But while the author admits she shares all of these, she is quick to point out that Susanna and Shelley are not one and the same.

Davidow says: “How much of Susanna is me? Well, I don’t play the violin and I’m not at all of the same disposition, but I do have those quirky abnormalities she has, and I understand age gap relationships. I draw on personal experience to explore the dynamic and the complexities of the relationship she has with her violin teacher. I really enjoyed writing that because I like impossible love stories that dare to go into the grey areas.”

I am interviewing Shelley Davidow by phone from Melbourne, where she is reading

Girl With The Violin for the talking book edition ahead of its publication next month. Although she has published 50 books, reading one aloud is a first for her. “I’ve learnt a lot,” she laughs, and I redirect her to my probing questions about the book, keenly aware that there is a fine line between exploring what lies between the pages and creating the need for a spoiler alert for readers.

She says: “I think what I also share with Susanna is the deep experience of geographic, emotional, psychological and even spiritual dislocation because I come from a long line of refugees who ran from something at one time or another. I’ve been running for a large part of my life. Susanna runs too but not nearly as much, from Australia to Germany and back to Australia, always running away from and towards something, and each time she loses part of herself. She is also a kind of wish fulfilment for me too, because I really wanted to be a violinist.”

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in the time of Apartheid, Shelley saw as a schoolgirl the dislocation of people from their society and felt in her bones that this was her heritage too. She says: “It’s a difficult time to talk about my own refugee background because the mainstream media has decided that all Jews are bad guys, but I come from a line of Ashkenazi Jews who spoke Yiddish and originated in the Rhineland north of the Alps. When I went to Germany as an exchange student at 15 I learnt fluent German without an accent in just five months. I speak other languages without that level of fluency, and people often ask if my family is from Germany, which it’s not but I feel that strong hereditary connection.”

But the inciting event for what would become The Girl With The Violin came three years later, when she returned to Germany to

visit her host family. She explains: “This family had rescued me from a bad situation and I went back to thank them. I went to Berlin with their 16-year-old daughter to visit her sister.We heard that the wall was coming down, so we went to see. I held her hand and off we went, and I thought I was going to die. Thoughts ran through my head, like I didn’t plan for this! Maybe I’m going to die on front of the Berlin Wall. There were so many people and there was so much anxiety. The people from the East were desperate to get into the West, and the people from the West were curious to see family members they hadn’t seen since 1961.There was a small gap in the wall and they were pushing through from both sides. I ended up in a crush, and beyond that there were young people climbing up onto the wall.”

The years rolled by and Davidow became a distinguished writer and academic, with some 50 publications to her credit, and lived and worked in many countries, but the experience of 9 November 1989 at the Berlin Wall never dimmed. She says: “I tried to write different versions of the elements of this novel, but all of them went dry. The experience of 1989 kept burning under my skin.”

After moving to Noosa with partner and fellow academic Paul Williams, she became a senior lecturer at University of the Sunshine Coast, and, with bookseller Annie Grossman and now-Noosa Mayor Frank Wilkie, she and Williams founded the Sunshine Coast Creative Writing Institute with the catchy tagline of “Write On The Coast”. In what spare time remained she published two acclaimed memoirs and worked up a few sample chapters of her Berlin book. With the publisher’s advance, in 2023 she went back to Berlin for the first time since 1989.

She recalls: “The last time I had stood in

front of the Brandenburg Gate was 35 years earlier. It was such a contrast, a beautiful early summer day, but it felt like no time had passed, that I was standing on the west side in ’89 in the rain and the cold and listening to the desperation of the crowd. This time I was on the opposite side of where the wall had been, in absolute tranquility, with no echoes of the past. But it still felt like a place of shadows and light. There’s so much that is disturbing about what happened there, and so much that is inspiring in terms of the art and the people.

“I couldn’t anticipate what I found when I went back because it transcends the physical. Most of the conversations in the book with East Berliners are based on real conversations I had last year, and what I found was that somehow there was a sense of loss that reunification had caused, that what they had, had been replaced by the consumerism of the West. There’s a narrative about the East that simply doesn’t ring true for them.”

There is a complex, intricate and international love story running through this cracker of a novel, but underlining it is a deep sense of time, place and culture, and how society endures. As Davidow says: “There are levels of meaning to the falling of the wall that you can never appreciate unless you were there, and if you were, they never leave you.”

The Sunshine Coast launch of The Girl with the Violin will feature two amazing women on violin, performing pieces from the novel. There will be a two-course dinner (with wine) and Shelley Davidow will be in conversation with Sally Piper.

Sunshine Beach Surf Life Saving Club, 4 July, 6pm, $90.

From singing and bush care to service clubs and art, there are a wide variety of groups in Noosa.


The Rise and Role of the Modern Sculpture Park’ will be presented by Geoffrey Edwards. As one of the oldest art forms, monumental sculpture has been presented in spectacular outdoor settings since antiquity. The princely estates of Renaissance and Baroque Europe were populated with marble nymphs and classical deities. Major art museums throughout the world feature large scale sculpture in their gardens and courtyards. But the idea of a park or garden conceived expressly for the display of sculpture is essentially a modern phenomenon. This talk is an account of the creation from the mid-twentieth century onwards of public and private sculpture parks in Europe, the US and Japan including more recent and remarkable examples in New Zealand and Australia.

It will be on Saturday 29 June at ArtsNational Noosa Venue, St Mary’s Church, 17 William Street, Tewantin at 4pm start. Bookings preferred: Visitor fees:$30 including wine and canapes after the lecture.

‘Marathon effort’ to raise money

Triathlete Fiona Livock is completing a 10km ocean swim this month to raise funds to help other Queensland athletes with a disability.

Having amniotic band syndrome, Fiona knows the difficulties athletes with a disability face on a daily basis and how expensive it is to buy equipment.

“I’m looking forward to this new goal I’m challenging myself to with my 10km ocean swim,” Fiona said.

“Training has been going fabulously with my super incredible coach working her magic to make this goal achievable.

“I’m doing this as a challenge for myself, and to help raise money to help other athletes with disabilities because finding the money for things like specialist equipment is never cheap.”

Fiona is donating 100 per cent of money raised on 30 June to Sporting Dreams, a notfor-profit set up by Sunshine Coast Paralympian swimmer and motivational speaker Marayke Jonkers in 2008.

There’s a GoFundMe page, or you can go to the website to make a tax deductible donation.

Fiona, who was a Sporting Dreams grant recipient in 2022, said it made a huge difference in her life and this was her way of saying ‘thanks’.

“I love a challenge and want to be able to help others,” Fiona said.

Fiona is also inviting other swimmers to join her in the water – for the whole distance, or just 2.5km.

Fiona’s syndrome means her hands and feet are deformed and one leg is shorter than the other which has a significant impact on the difference in strength between both legs.

Regardless, she pushes on. But she said it’s not always easy.

“I have a lot of mental health stuff, including PTSD, depression and anxiety,” she said.

“As a kid I was made fun of and laughed at if

I didn’t get things perfect first go.

“Therefore, I quickly learned to give up.”

Fiona said she never learned to ride a bike as a kid, however now competes in triathlons.

“I only started running in 2014 and worked my way up to my first half marathon in 2016. I sat watching the Mooloolaba Triathlon wishing I could do that but“knowing“ I never could because I couldn’t ride a bike.

“The next year my thinking started to

change. I never thought I could run a marathon, but here I was doing that after five months.

“On Sunday 2 October 2016, I got on a bike and learned to ride for the first time. Less than five years later, I finished my first full Ironman distance in a time that I felt proud of!”

To help Fiona reach her fundraising target, go to GoFundMe Sporting Dreams Charity Ocean Swim Fundraiser or sportingdreams.

Dolphins reclaim the John Currey Shield

The Ray White Noosa Dolphins rose above their own ill-discipline, including 6 penalties given away when in possession and a very calm and disciplined Maroochydore side to take Saturdays match and the John Currey Shield in a nail biting 26-23 win.

The Dolphins got away to a flyer with a clinical exit from their own half kick and chase, forcing a penalty and turn over. The quick thinking of prop Pala Mailangi took a quick tap to barge over the Swans line. That was one of the very few positive plays by the Dolphins until the 70th minute though according to assistant coach Geno Costin. ‘There was a litany of mistakes by us and the flow on is the inability to build pressure on the opposition. That Maroochydore side was the complete opposite, managing their game, slowly building scoreboard pressure at 23-11’ Costin opined. ‘Given we won the match, it may seem odd to say, but we must be better if we want to take the ultimate prize at seasons end. We looked flat at time during that game, and you wont aways get away with that.’

The loss of the returning half back Will Christie with an ankle injury late on the second half sent a shockwave through the Dolphins, with Ben Condon already sidelined for the season. Enter 19-year-oldWill Miller in his first A grade appearance, putting in a performance that belied his inexperience. Pinpoint passing and courage in defence impressed the coaching staff with his inclusion in the player points. Joining Miller was the introduction of Josh Munro and Ben Rogers returning from injury, along with Matt Kelly, into the match. The Dolphins lifted with the fresh legs on the field as they faced the two try deficit, with the first coming soon after. With five minutes left on the clock and behind on the scoreboard, the Dolphins finally clicked, with a controlled

Tigers too slick for Vultures

The Rococo Noosa Tigers hit the bye weekend after a comprehensive 15 goal thumping of a pretty stoic Mt Gravatt in Brisbane last Saturday. As per usual it all started in the middle of the ground where big Maccy Johnston got first use of the ball and fed the scavenging Tiger smalls McNiece, Fitzpatrick and Pettigrove the entire day. Whilst McNiece looked to be the standout on the ground, both Fitzpatrick and Pettigrove complemented their terrific work bagging 3 goals apiece to sit firmly next to him as possible best on grounds.

Ex Brisbane Lions players Daniel Rich and Jono Freeman both bagged 5 a piece and were forever damaging whilst Charlie Bowes and Nathan Horbury again were solid contributors in the victory. A special mention also to 17 year old debutant and life long Noosa Junior Rory McKenzie on debut who showed the poise and class of a season campaigner in his maiden Senior game.

It’s so exciting watching these young Noosa locals come through the ranks and much credit must go to the recently re-signed Noosa Coach Matt Luenberger and his coaching and selection staff. The Tigers are firmly heading in the right direction.

ing several opposition players as he crossed the line to score, converted by Ross Magnus, taking the Dolphins to an unlikely lead. With two minutes to play, the Ray White Dolphins had to withstand the attacking onslaught of the Swans and it was a Matt Kelly steal at the breakdown that allowed the Dolphins to control the final minute and take the victory.

KB’s Player of the Match went to Levi Shaw with his lock partner Billy Tait taking 2 points and debutant Will Miller 1. The win leaves the Dolphins second on the ladder two points behind University.

The A Grade was not the only heart stropper with the Ray White Reserve Grade side winning with seconds to go in the earlier match 25-24. In a match described by coach Rocco Perugino and the literal Game of Two Halves, the Dolphins executed the match plan in the first half to perfection, ball control, kicking for field position and patience in defence and attack. The plan worked with the Dolphins going to the break with a dominant 18-3 scoreline. ‘Not sure if there was something in the water, but in the second half we did the opposite’ Perugini said. ‘Poor discipline on our part handed 9 penalties to Maroochydore in the first 15 minutes of that second half gifting them a 24-18 lead’. With match seemingly out of reach, the Dolphins were awarded their sole second half penalty and the players dug deep to take advantage. Ball control returned and the Dolphins were able gain field position. With 30 seconds left, lock Goerge Noble picked up the loose ball from the ruck diving over to score and level that match at 23 all. With the full-time siren in the background, captain Reon Fortington steered over the winning conversion. KB’s Player of the Match went to Jake Serex with Matt Kelly 2 points and Josh Munro 1. The win secured top spot on the ladder.

The Dolphins are away at Caloundra this weekend.

Our Senior Women were much better against one of the competition heavyweights Moreton Bay as a stand alone game on Saturday. After a very even and competitive first quarter the Opposition really put down the pedal in the second to snuff out any chance of an upset Noosa victory. Tigers coach Tony ’Tunza’ Brennan saying “our second quarter really did let us down after a good start and after a spray at half time I thought the girls were pretty good. We are just still struggling to transfer the footy cleanly enough for longer periods but the improvement is very noticeable”.

Dolphins magic moments

Under 6s – This week we headed to Nambour with Noosa Red taking on Grammar and Noosa White up against Matthew Flinders. Both games saw our boys playing at a high level with the ball and without. Domino’s Pizza Player of the Day for Noosa Red went to Brody who was untouchable on his way to the try line on multiple occasions. For Noosa White, it was Ned M for having his strongest game of the season in both attack and defence. Well done boys!

Under 7s – Playing Peregian Saints at Nambour, we got there early to cheer on the U6s. Training this week focussed on positions and spreading out wide, which showed on game day. One of our first in-game lineouts resulted in Hemi receiving the ball in the halfback spot and setting up a strong attack. Alfie had a great catch from the kick-off and Owen came in with a breakaway run stepping his way through the line and scoring a try in the corner. Otis had a good game holding position and offering lots of talk and encouragement for the team. Archer had an impressive kick-off and sealed the game with a try at the end, working hard to convert. Awesome to have Carter and Reiko supporting play also. Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match went to Owen and Alfie for being strong pillars in the centre of the field.

Under 8s – Noosa v Maroochydore. The team took a morning road trip to Gympie to take on the Swans. The boys were focused on teamwork from the start. The offloads were Sonny Bill-like, Hugo with an offload, Owen with an offload, Archie with offload, Hudson with a flick pass. The boys just kept on marching forward. Eddie strode out with good runs and Alfie found the space to score. Flynn’s passing was great, clearing the ruck area and opening up space out wide. Captain Koa used his speed and step to carve up and jump through the air for a try in the corner, taking out the Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match. It was exceptional game of teamwork and fun. The Swans were a great bunch with both teams beaming with smiles at full time.

Under 10s – U10s were off to Eumundi this week and began the game with lots of talk and organisation at the kick-offs, followed by some classic breakthroughs and rapid-fire early tries. After a dip in Dolphins focus, Gympie managed to claw back to just about even the score heading into half time. Some firm motivation and reminders from the coaches brought the Phins back into focus, with significant improvement in their defence and even a little added creative flair with a neat little kick-and-chase try. Props to Zachy D and Paddy for showing the spirit of the Dolphins with their sportsmanship and full effort when helping to make up Gympie’s numbers. Congrats to Domino’s Pizza Player of theWeek Fynn for his cooperative play, and this week’s Laserzone awardee, Jack. Under 11s – University made a quick score and took us by surprise. But it didn’t take long for the U11 Dolphins to regroup and send Benny over the line via great play from Eric and Sol, 7-7. Following a strong Uni run and a menacing Zion tackle, Uni scored under the posts and converted it. We hit back quickly again with a wide try to Eric. Thanks to Monty and Taylor’s fine set-up, the ball went through our pack and Benny crossed again on the sideline, making it 19-14. Mason’s impressive line-out break saw him carry five defenders

over the line, with Ben converting for 26-14. Eric and Ben combined effectively and Ben scored yet again, under the posts for his hattrick. But he didn’t stop there – Benny’s next try was extra special, supported by Mason. 40-14. Hudson’s strong run up the middle followed with Tom executing a decisive push over the ball enabled Eric’s solid run to score another try, which he converted himself. Sol showed some great running before Uni’s subsequent efforts culminated in another try on the wing, exploiting gaps in the Dolphins’ defence, Final score - 47-19.

Under 12s – Reds – The U12 Reds travelled up the Bruce to Gympie to play rival neighbours, the Saints in Round 9. Always a tough contest, the boys arrived ready and determined to dominate. Despite a few ball handling errors in the first half, this was a game characterised by fantastic team play, very well executed set moves and breakout runs. The Saints didn’t go down without a fight however, pushing back hard against the Reds blistering attacks with the final score not a true reflection of the gritty contest between the two sides. Disciplined training is really starting to pay off: the boys are demonstrating a much more nuanced understanding of the game as well as great developing teamwork. Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match went to Max for blistering footwork and brick-wall tackling. Reds 27 – Saints 7

Whites – Saturday morning in Caloundra to face Maroochydore, Tough and uncompromising, the boys are bound to be sore.

The Whites ambushed with a terrific fast start,

Each player involved and playing his part.

Emerson capitalised scoring a tackle-busting try,

It’s back to back games now he’s grabbed a meat pie.

The onslaught continued when Ollie found Lenny;

He sprinted away rewarded with high fives there were many.

Loose forwards Louie, Connor and Seb were dominating Front rowers Jack, Ollie and Bailey were bruising and intimidating.

The scrummaging was immense winning ball against the feed, Providing plenty of grunt for the scrum to succeed.

Perry schemed down blindsides; Tyler fended with force.

Finn thrust into half back, kept the game plan on course

Domino’s Player of the Match was Louie for his game-winning double; His defence too,reduced the Swans to rubble.

Whites 24 - Swans 12

Under 13s – The U13s played with ticker against Peregian Saints in Gympie. Having really struggled against them in our first match of the season, we showed the improvement we’ve been building each week under superb coaches, Ben and Frankie. This was despite having many players unable to play and nil reserves.Thankfully two awesome U12 Reds, Zac and Xavier, came to our call for much-needed back-up. The gusty pair playing the whole of the second half. Unfortunately this was due to injuries to Sam P and Nate. Our boys excelled in defence. Despite the other’s team’s star number 8 getting more ball than anyone in the game, the Dolphins didn’t let him cross the line once. At about twice the size of most of our boys, it sometimes took four players to hold him back, but that’s what they did time and again. Max took out Domino’s Pizza Player of the Match for the second week in a row thanks to his strong ball running and immense defensive effort, making two tackles in a row multiple times. Eli F, Oscar, Matty and Luke were also excellent defensively. Baden and Sam N made their best tackles yet, both driving their ball runners metres backwards. Well done boys, lots to be proud of.

U7s pillars of strength and players of the match Owen and Alfie. U12 Reds Max leaving all the Saints behind. U13s line out in their best clash of the season in Gympie. U12 Whites’ Jack storming through the Swans defence. U12 Whites Try.

Pickleball has a home

It was in the summer of 1965 on the Island of Bainbridge Washington USA, that three fathers, Joel Prichard, Bill Bell and Barney McCallum got together to invent a game that would keep their bored children entertained.

Little did they realize, that across the other side of the world in a beautiful little sleepy fishing village,( a description made by a trendy Melbourne tourist) called Noosa Heads, that in this day and age their invention, which they called Pickleball, would be consolidated and now played by 155 members of the local Noosa Pickleball club: and also, in our country, we would be rated as number 7 amongst the top playing countries in the world. The game is now one of the fastest growing sports.

Now for the third consecutive year it is also the fastest growing sport in the USA. Regarding age groups for players, the largest age group is the 18 to 34 years.The game is definitely on the move.

Now after a long tough struggle, President of the Noosa Pickleball Club, Bob Bleicher said, ‘’Although we don’t own it, we now have a venue where we can play: a venue that we can call home: the Olive Donaldson Pavilion in Tewantin. The Olive Donaldson Pavilion (the Olive) pickleball courts have become very popular with our members and the weekly use of these courts is continuing to grow. Member are using the courts almost every day.

The Management Committee lowered the court hiring fee which stimulated use of the facility and of course, was very popular with members. The club continues the Free Friday Night Social at the Olive, originally organised by Miriam Brace.

Woody Dass and Glenice Ault, ran free Workshops for Trainers to grow a group of club members who can run the newcomers and followers, up sessions. This was a very successful workshop providing both training and takehome workshop, resources that will allow attendees to run newcomers sessions.

Gina Foster secured a Queensland Active Women and Girls Grant ($7,500) that will provide a specialised training program for our female players. This will subsidize coaching by renown coachers such as Gail Aiken. Noosa Leisure Centre (NLC) is an important venue for club play: this includes a very popular Tuesday and Thursday sessions.

The Tuesday round-robin sessions for intermediate and above players, is receiving very popular feedback. Thursday League format is a great opportunity for players of all levels to play competitively and grow their skills. Keith Bing, a long-time club member, runs a popular newcomer and beginner on Sunday at NLC.

Noosaville State School provides another venue of club sessions on Monday nights thanks to the efforts of Miriam Brace and Gina Foster. The Management Committee just run the day-to- day business affairs: but cannot do this without the tireless efforts of a dedicated team of volunteer members.

We have created a President’s Circle Volunteer of the month page on our website that highlights outstanding volunteer service to the club. There are several active volunteers that are doing a wonderful job of making things happen both socially and at our NLC and Olive sessions. Next week we talk to Pickleball regarding Social Events, Player Development and Competitive Play.

workshops, guest presentations and networking with fellow clubs throughout Queensland. Saturday night was the annual awards dinner which each year has a dress up theme. This year being the year of the Paris 2024 Olympics Games, our members embraced the theme, dressing up as French Artists for a memorable night.”

For the Noosa Club, a major highlight came when club Life Member Val Hooper was recognised by Little Athletics Queensland with a Distinguished Merit Award for serving in various capacities for more than twelve years at Club, Regional and State Level. This included eight years serving on the Board of Little Athletics Qld. “This award,” said proud husband and Head Coach Mick Hooper, “had to be kept secret: I don’t know how the Board achieved it but they did. It came as a total surprise.”

The following morning was the AGM which saw Noosa’s latest Little Athletics Life Member Michelle Moore voted back on to the Board of Little Athletics Queensland for another two years’ service. “Our Noosa club is very proud of the achievements of these two incredible women.” Coach Hooper. Once again, we have yet another success story from within the ranks of our Noosa sporting community: it’s good to be able to acknowledge those who work behind the scenes, not just the athletes. Without these people there would be nothing.

Rugby League

they started strong but it was KiaraWoods who stole the show again scoring a double and defending strong at the back. This resulted in a 20 to 16 win for Noosa thus allowing them to leap frog Caloundra on the ladder and keeping their finals hopes alive.

In the reserves Noosa came out firing against Bribie crossing their line twice in the opening minutes with tries to Will Cousens and ChanseWilson. Noosa continued to dominate the first half by controlling the rucks. The return of club legend Terry Carrol, provided stiff defence laying out a few opposition players. Tries to Jai Turner and Glen Jarrett gave us a commanding lead going into half time.

The second half was much the same, turning away the Bribie attack with strong defence. Fullback Ashar Buckman sealed the game with a 90m line break. Then continuing his try scoring ability front rower Jake Bullen, crossed the line again just before the full- time hooter.This great win by the reserves saw them tied in third place on the ladder with a 12 points gap, to head off Maroochydore.

This weekend will see the still undefeated Noosa A grade playing at home against Stanley Rivers. Early games will be Reserves playing Stanley Rivers at 4pm and Women kicking off the day against Maroochydore at 2.30pm. Outriggers

Free Come and Try lessons for newcomers to the sport, organised by Woody Dass, have been offered every fortnight. Follow up sessions, are held to allow newcomers further practice and lessons as beginners. Rod Edwards has offered several free Tournament Readiness sessions, which have been attended to encourage members to enter tournaments.

Little Athletics

Last weekend saw eight of Noosa’s club members, head to Seaworld on the Gold Coast for the annual Little Athletics Queensland Conference. Noosa’s Head Coach and Life Member Mick Hooper was very happy with the results.

Last weekend saw Noosa Pirates A grade team sitting out a bye: however Reserves played Bribie Island, Women’s played Caloundra and third grade played Mary Valley. In the Third Grade they travelled to Kandanga to play the Staggs. Noosa started well holding their own but errors proved costly and ball control was erratic. This resulted in a 26to 12 win for Staggs. Best on field for Pirates was young front rower Joe Dwyer.

Mooloolaba has a slender lead over Noosa with 1610 points to 1591. The Brisbane Club 1338 points, Scarborough are on 1140 and Surfers Paradise 980 points. The last round will be atTalobilla Club in Redcliffe on July 6th and coming at the end of the month is the GC30. Here’s hoping for a great finish for our proud Noosa Outrigger club: a club that has definitely had a good season. NoosaLittleAthleticsmembersenjoyingtheParisdressupthemeattheLAQannualconference.

Jack takes on Point Panic

I love the idea of bodysurfing, have done since I watched my friend Mark Cunningham kick into a monster set wave at Second Reef Pipeline back in the ‘70s, half twist down the face and go straight into an el-rollo as he planed into the barrel.

Well, memory is a funny thing, and so is technical terminology, but I can assure you that what Cunno did on that huge wave nearly half a century ago defied logic. Mine at least. Of course he was the best bodysurfer in the world at the time, and remained so for decades, honing his technique by swimming out in treacherous seas to save lives at Sunset Beach and Ehukai Beach Park, where he was chief lifeguard.

I had a few cracks over the years, but to be honest, I was useless. Fortunately my enduring friendship with Mark meant that I got to see a few of the best strut their stuff at various breaks in Hawaii and at the Newport Wedge in California. We even introduced a body-surfing event to the Noosa surf festival on a couple of occasions, with Mark flying in to preside, of course, and at its peak Bali’s Deus Nine Foot and Single event had some hilarious womp comps, with Noosa’s Harrison Roach, Matt Cuddihy and Doc Bexon often starring.

All of this is fresh in my mind because I’ve just been watching a bunch of clips from last week’s International Bodysurfing Association World Finals, held at body surf central, Point Panic in Hawaii. A fast-breaking right with sections custom-made for wompers, Point Panic is close enough to shore to give you a good look at the amazing stuff the surfers are pulling off, sometimes difficult to see if you’re watching an offshore reef with the naked eye. The downside is that it runs right into a bunch of rather ominous rocks below a cliff.

No problem for our Jack Lewis, the top Australian qualifier for the Hawaiian Worlds and Australasian team captain, who put in some stellar performances right through the rounds, just missing the final to finish equal fifth. Not bad for an old bloke who just turned 40! Sydney’s Dylan Kelly finished fourth in the final, taken out by France’s Alix Schorsch. Ally Zillman was the highest placed Australian woman, also finishing equal fifth.

Tewantin-based Jack, an all-round waterman who won the ’23 Coolum Wedge event and the world qualifier from ironman Ky Kinsela, saw Ky turn the tables on him this year, but he still had the points on the board to secure his spot at Point Panic. Next year, the World Finals is set for Coolum, where Jack would have to be considered a real chance for the world title.

Smales wails at Indigenous

Meanwhile, a bit closer to home and in much chillier water, Noosa surfing bros Landen and Kaiden Smales made another huge impression at this year’s Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles at Djarrak/Bells Beach, Victoria.

Surfing Australia reports: “Landen Smales (Noosa Heads) made history by dropping two

perfect 10 point rides on his way to claiming victory in both the Mens Longboard and Junior Boys divisions. Landon showcased his exceptional talent, delivering standout performances. In the Open Longboard semi-final, Smales chose the Rincon walls to demonstrate his skills. Utilising the entire length of his board, he walked up and back between the nose and the tail multiple times before executing huge drop knee carves to score a perfect 10 ride. This gave him a convincing win and momentum heading into the final.

“Before competing in the longboard final,

Smales switched to his shortboard for the Junior Boys final. Incorporating his longboard style, Smales flowed seamlessly through the Rincon walls again. Smales then tapped into the innovative side of the shortboard criteria. Taking off on a critical section, he built up speed before launching into a huge lofty air reverse, earning his second 10 of the day and an 18 combined total to secure the win.

“Smales went on to dominate the longboard final against Ben Cole (Yamba), Rhys Collins (Red Hill, Vic), and his brother, Kaiden, who finished a close second.

‘For my first 10 on the longboard, the wave was just perfect and gave me so many opportunities to nose ride and carve my way through,’ Landen said. ‘In the shortboard, that 10 was pretty sick too. The wave also gave me so many opportunities, and I got to tee off some sick snaps and then finish with a big air.’’

The event, held three days, was a vibrant mix of competition and cultural celebration, showcasing the top Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander surfers from across Australia. Well done again, Landen and Kaiden!

Weather holds strong

The weather held strong this past week, but there was a slight increase in wind and swell towards the weekend, causing some choppy conditions along the beaches for a few days, which thankfully settled for a window of opportunity over the weekend.

The swell is expected to get a little bumpy over the next two weeks, so when venturing offshore or being around the beach and rocks, be sure to pick your optimal time frames.

Offshore the reefs continue to provide an amazingly diverse range of fish with quality snapper and pearl perch being dragged up from the deeper reefs 10-15nm east of the Wide Bay Bar.

Red emperor, tusk fish, job fish, sweetlip, hussar, cod and cobia are all being caught in good numbers and sizes.

Inshore reefs saw numbers of schools and spotted mackerel as well as longtail kicking about.

The mac tuna were still hanging around Inskip Point with queenies also popping by occasionally.

Flathead and whiting can be caught on the flats upstream from Teebar Creek mouth.

Try targeting these guys on the outgoing tide.

Flathead will be sunning themselves in the shallows and are likely to strike a well-presented bait or soft plastic like the Zman Grubz or Powerbait Fantail shrimps.

Natural colours are a win for me but greens are proven more than effective when targeting large lizards.

Trevally have been hanging around the points and moored boats with squid and whiting also around the boats.

Give the micro jigs or really small slugs a go

here and you will clean up on the trev’s as well as entice the whiting.

Again beaches saw a rise in swell and winds at the back end of the week but all the usual suspects were about if you had a long enough stick to point at them. Saturday saw a break in the swell and had bream and whiting schooling in the gutters.

Tailor were around but in smaller numbers than last week, however, most of them and the fisho’s had moved into the rivers.

The rivers have really been on fire and with the full moon on Saturday it may be worth pumping a few yabbies and going for a flick after dark in pursuit of some river monsters.

In the fresh, not too many people are keen on the cold mornings and evenings and I can’t really blame them.

But if you are brave enough to head out to Borumba, the bass are schooling in the deeper pockets so a deeper-diving crankbait seems to be the most effective.

Toga seemed quiet this week but a few nice ones were caught hanging around the surface before winds picked up.

In the Mary, sooty’s and perch took a liking to small soft plastics like grubs and shrimps while the bigger fish wanted something a little bigger and shinier to demolish.

For all the latest information log onto www. for up-to-date bar and fishing reports, don’t forget to drop into Gympie’s newest tackle store “The Tackle Shop”, Tackle World Noosa, and Northshore Bait & Tackle in Marcoola for all the right equipment, bait and advice to get you catching.

THE surrounds of nature, the ultra-mellow beach scene as well as significant views of Noosa Heads, and a simply dazzling white-washed six-bedroom, three-bathroom modernist residence had buyers from near and afar entranced during the marketing campaign.

On a sunny auction day, the 1.01ha property at 74 Foxtail Rise, Doonan, listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate’s Tiffany Wilson, drew an interested and excited crowd and was sold under the hammer for $2.8m.

Reminiscent of Greece’s Cyclades Islands, and located at the end of a whisper-quiet cul-de sac, six-minutes from cafe central on the Noosa River, the home featured massive custom timber entry doors, curved wall features, high ceilings and black granite flooring in the immense open-plan living spaces.

On the lower level was a partially selfcontained apartment, while an alfresco terrace, lawn area and sail-shaped pool with white granite surround highlighted the entertainer features.


Jeanette Catalano and Mario Catalano of Hinternoosa have continued their run of success at mid-week auctions, this time at 28 Overlander Ave, Cooroy, of a Wednesday.

It was the first time for sale in 35 years for the three-bedroom, one-bathroom, fivecar house on 1716sq m.

Lovingly maintained and freshly refurbished, it attracted good enquiry during the campaign. Two registered bidders on auction day saw the property selling under the hammer for $815,000.

The buyers were locals, a young family looking to move off their acreage to something more manageable.


“The speed in the market at the moment, is seeing sellers ensuring they have a property to go to,’’ Jeanette said, “and that is always a balancing act.’’

7 Blueberry, 2 registered bidders, but conditional buyer was grateful it was passed in.


Absolutely divine inside and out - that is how Alisa Wythes at Hinternoosa describes the four-bedroom, two-bathroom, four-car house with pool, sheds, on 2ha at 99 Tablelands Rd, Cooran, she is taking to auction at 10am Friday, 21 June.

“It is meticulous,’’ Alisa said. “A character home ... something to fall in love with.

“It’s almost like a Swiss chalet or Cape Cod look.

“There has been lots of interest … local and international. I have no doubt it will sell at or straight after auction.

“This is the most life I have had on a property in a long time.’’

A meandering concrete driveway, lined with established gardens, leads to the house that is highlighted by timber-crafted ceilings, solid timber floors, and soaring high ceilings.

The open-plan living area features a fireplace and air-conditioning. The kitchen has views and a servery to the expansive

outdoor verandah.

Equipped with soft-close drawers, Miele gas cooking, a dishwasher, and a double Electrolux dual pyrolytic oven, this kitchen combines functionality with style.

An expansive covered veranda serves as the perfect outdoor dining room, adjoined by timber decking that features a cabana, an 8m by 4 m saltwater pool, and customseated outdoor fireplace.

There is a guest retreat with two bedrooms, living and bathroom.

Originally part of a dairy farm, the property is ideal for grazing animals. The three paddocks are secured by reliable electric fences.

There are two 6m by 9m garages, both with remote access, and a twovehicle carport. Bore water is available for animal drinking water and irrigation to two paddocks. The third paddock features a dam, fed by a seasonal creek that runs across the entire rear of the property.


It’s a special block and lots of peopleespecially locals - have had their eyes on it for a long time.

A three-bedroom, two-bathroom, twocar house on 653sq m at 2 Orient Dve, Sunrise Beach, has been attracting plenty of attention ahead of the auction scheduled for

Friday, 21 June. 410335

12pm on Saturday, 29 June.

Zoe Cooke and Roark Walsh of Tom Offermann Real Estate are taking the twolevel house to the market.

“People have always had their eye on that street or location,’’ Zoe said. “It’s a corner block and the house is in right location for an ocean view.’’

The bright, white classic timber beach house with wrap-around verandahs has north-east aspect and views to the ocean.

It features polished timber floorboards and a fireplace in the living area.

In the east wing are three bedrooms with built-in robes. The main has an ensuite while the family bathroom has a bath.

The space under the house is immense, whether for storage or leisure time activities. At one end is the carport with extra storage space.


The views are stunning … and uninterrupted. The three-bedroom, twobathroom, two-car beachside townhome 3/18 Peregian Esp, Peregian Beach, has a view from most rooms.

It’s an apartment that is big enough to live in or have as a holiday retreat, Tracy Russell of Tom Offermann Real Estate said.

Tracy is taking the property to auction Saturday, 29 June, at 1pm.

“The three bedrooms are spacious,’’ she said, “and there are high ceilings - even a courtyard on title at the back where you could add a pool.

“Sunrises are a delight. There are views of the whales in the ocean at the moment as they migrate north for winter.

“This is a quiet neighbourhood yet 900m to the village.

“There has been a very positive response to the campaign - particularly from Brisbane, local, and interstate … especially Victorian.

“Peregian Village is getting better and better all the time. That draws investors as well owner-occupiers with visitors.’’

The townhome is one of five in the complex.

On the upper levels are high-ceilinged, open-plan living and dining spaces, and a full-length and eco-timbered terrace.

The main bedroom is on the north side - with built-in robes and ensuite - and also opens out to the terrace.

The contemporary kitchen comes with crisp off-white Corian benchtops, 2-pac cabinetry, semi-island breakfast bar plus premium appliances.

FIRST impressions count, especially when the contemporary coastal-style home offers an enviable family lifestyle in a prestige part of an estate with a Noosa Heads postcode.

Note the streetscape, the winding pathways with bird-attracting sub-tropical shrubs, and the stand-out yet serene location’s strong connection to a section of the Noosa National Park with its plethora of flora and fauna, also a lake and recreational parks, which are easily accessible via a walk and cycle way opposite.

Admire Pandanus and bright Tibouchinas partially fringing the north-easterlyfacing courtyard. Coffee mornings and sundowners spring instantly to mind.

Open the pretty aqua-coloured door in the portico and look along the cool, grey-tiled hallway, but first be enticed by the master suite - it looks out to the front terrace and has a walk-in robe, well-designed storage to suit the fashion conscious, double vanities in the ensuite and a separate toilet.

The residence with its natural toned palette certainly has design functionality throughout. Zones offer a multi generation family the room to connect, entertain and retreat, with the parts wrapped into one lovely structure.

The generous sun-drenched open plan living and dining zones with high ceilings, a northerly orientation and bi-fold doors and roller screens, extend and meld effortlessly with the great outdoors. In this case, it’s an all-seasons covered alfresco timber terrace with spaces for dining and lounging.

The hub of the home, where every facet of entertaining is a breeze, is the L-shaped kitchen with huge island/breakfast bar, stone bench tops, walk-in pantry with window into the garden, plus the latest appliances including a 5-burner gas cooktop.


In the south wing is the media room, every teen’s dream of a retreat, which can be closed off for say study and computer games, plus two double bedrooms with built-in robes, also a family bathroom with oval tub. A fourth queen-size bedroom also has built-in robes.

Outside from the laundry is a low maintenance garden with natives and a vegi patch which extends around to the rear of the property. The double garage has heaps of storage.

“There is lots to love about living here, especially for families,” enthuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent, Erica Newton, who is taking the property to auction. “A park is at the end of the street, there are cycle and walking tracks around the estate,

along Lake Weyba, through part of the Noosa National Park and it’s less than 5 minute bike ride to the Noosa Farmers’ Market.

“Nearby is a championship golf course and clubhouse, plus those with a serious exercise regime will hot-foot it to the resident’s only private recreational facility. It has two tennis courts, two solar-heated swimming pools, a gym and changing rooms.

“Adding to the cache of a Noosa Heads postcode, is its proximity to numerous schools, Noosa Aquatic Centre, football clubs/fields, Noosa’s Main Beach, the boardwalk to the Noosa National Park and world-famous surfing reserve, Hastings Street’s boutiques and restaurants, Gympie

Terrace plus several shopping centres.” Facts & Features:

THE excitement is palpable. Admire sweeping views across Noosa Main Beach, Laguna Bay Coloured Sands and beyond to Double Island Point, waves peeling off First Point, and lustful beach, glistening waters also verdant Noosa National Park on the doorstep. And the cachet of Little Cove, a world class destination, is unequivocal.

The luminosity of the ocean is matched by the interior. A chic breezy overlay, polished marble flooring, high ceilings and a beachy monochromatic aesthetic, create a tranquil environment - a sanctuary of barefoot luxury and exclusivity.

Admire a thoughtful design spelling holidays for all seasons and reasons, with light-saturated generous living spaces and a curved wall of custom timber cabinetry.

Banks of sliders on two sides coalesce naturally from indoors, out to a substantial wide undercover terrace, more a stage of indulgence, thanks to perfect northerly views, and a glistening pool enticing you to plunge into serenity. Enjoy sundowners and barbeques with a side of listening to waves lapping onshore and trilling local birdlife.

The trapezoid-angled kitchen with granite topped cabinetry and outer side underbench custom cabinetry and integrated fridge, has all the whizz-bang appliances to suit every cook, every entertaining occasion.

Curved walls along the hallway lead to a second living/leisure space which has access to an undercover terrace on the east side, also three bedrooms with built-in robes. The premier king with Noosa National Park and Coral Sea views, has main terrace access, and a marble ensuite with double walk-in shower and two-basin granite-topped cabinetry. The additional two bedrooms each have access to an undercover terrace, and the bathroom has a bathtub.

Totally irresistible everything. The only limit, as they say, is the horizon.

Magical Little Cove, pure coastal bliss, day and night, is known globally for its plethora of natural assets such as the 477-hectare Noosa National Park, with its abundance of flora and fauna, walking trails, surf breaks and world recognised Surfing Reserve.

“Let’s also not forget the year-round idyllic sub-tropical climate,” says Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Nic Hunter who has slated the property for auction on Saturday 13 July 2024. “The whole-floor apartment captures everything wonderful

from stillness, serenity and absolute privacy to stupendous views and location, which is also first class.

“Turn left on the foreshore boardwalk to Little Cove Beach, & mins away Hastings Street’s sophisticated array of boutiques, art galleries, nationally known restaurants, bars and beachside cafes, as well as Noosa Main Beach. Turn right on the boardwalk and spot a koala on a walk to Alexandra Bay and Sunshine Beach.”

SELLER REVIEW | 4 Challenge Court, Sunshine Beach Every Detail Taken Care Of

I live interstate so it was difficult for me to know how to proceed with a sale in Queensland. Monique was amazing arranging everything, repairs, new carpet, staging, gardeners and solicitors. She was always available to chat if needed. Anything whatsoever that needed to be done, Monique was more than up for the task. The end result was I got a great price and the buyer was also very happy. I would highly recommend Monique to anyone selling their home or for that matter purchasing a property.
