From Saturday we can now:

Self-Isolation Activities

With many of us self-isolating to assist to protect ourselves, and others, from contracting COVID19, we are all finding ourselves spending much more time at home than usual.    Some of us are better than others at coping with enforced isolation, there is no doubt a few of you are going a little stir-crazy.

Below is a list of things to do to occupy your time, that might be better for the … Read the full post »

Australia Day

This weekend we come together as a nation to celebrate Australia Day; the public holiday will be held on Monday.  There are many events being held across the Sunshine Coast to commemorate this day and bring us together as a community – from picnics, riding giant thongs in the surf and dunny races, through to backyard BBQs with family and friends, and maybe a game of cricket thrown in; there’s … Read the full post »

Downsizing? Things to Consider.

As Australia’s population ages with people living (and working) longer, there has been a shift from a portion of the demographic to move from the family home into something smaller – it might be a smaller home, an apartment/townhouse, or a villa at a retirement/over 50’s community.

The advantages include: minimising maintenance, access to equity locked in family home, freeing up responsibility – making it easier to ‘lock and leave’ the … Read the full post »

Christmas Activities

December is here…so the countdown begins until the robust red fella pops into our homes with a sack full of goodies for those that behaved.  For many, Christmas is a well-earned break; a time to spend with family and friends and reflect on the year that was and the year ahead.  Some of you will be going away no doubt; but many of you will be staying home…and when you … Read the full post »

Feng Shui…Balance & Harmony in Your Home

Increasingly we are reading and hearing more and more about ‘Feng Shui’ particularly in the home and office.  Some buyers place great value on a home’s Feng Shui when seeking to purchase, so it is certainly something to be aware of and take on board if possible.

Firstly, what is Feng Shui?  Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice focused on balancing and harmonising the energies in your home; aligning the … Read the full post »

Solar Power Benefits!

With summer on the way and energy prices continuing to rise; if you haven’t already invested in solar power – now is the time!  In Australia we enjoy more sunshine than any other continent on earth, so nothing makes more sense than tapping into the abundant energy the sun provides to power our home and minimise not only our utility bills but our carbon footprint.

Benefits from investing in solar power:

Airport Expansion Update

Just down the road at Marcoola, the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion is going ahead full steam, and when completed there will be significant employment and economic benefits, for this region that will bode well for long term capital growth of property prices; not to mention the convenience of additional services and destinations for Sunshine Coast residents, less travel to Brisbane down the congested M1 as there will be more options … Read the full post »

Happy Mother’s Day!

This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day in Australia; whilst we like to think we show our appreciation to our mothers every day…many of us forget, or maybe live far away (like me) and don’t get the opportunity.  Mother’s Day is the one day of the year, where we really are reminded to say THANK YOU in one form or another to our mothers and celebrate motherhood.

With the glorious autumnal weather, … Read the full post »


Tomorrow as a nation, we collectively commemorate our most important national occasion – ANZAC Day; where we take the time to reflect on the sacrifices young men and women have made and continue to make for our country.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will … Read the full post »
