Flat as a tack "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Attachment disorder

Some unusual commentary and conclusions were drawn about the price of flats this week, derived from an Urbis survey of unsettled off-the-plan prices each quarter (which alas does not compare like-for-like sales). 

Apparently apartment prices boomed in Gold Coast and Melbourne, but nosedived in Brisbane, in just three months. 

Or not. 

In reality what tends to happen is the first user of a new apartment or townhouse pays a newness premium, which may be eroded on resale, especially in a soft market. 

For all the talk of property booms and unsustainable prices, median price growth in established apartments has, on average, been pretty muted outside Sydney, despite low interest rates. 

When you look at the last ten years of official figures from the ABS you'll find that only Sydney has recorded strong growth in the price of attached dwellings (and even this came off the back of nearly half a decade of flat or falling prices). 

Hobart has gone on a bit of a run over the past couple of years, the tight market sending the median asking price for a unit above $300,000 for the first time.


Melbourne's attached dwelling price index recorded a compound annual growth rate of 4 per cent over the decade to September 2017.

All other capital cities have only seen moderate price growth over the past decade - hardly a bubble looking set to burst - though if you wound the clock back to 2003 the growth rates would be considerably stronger in Pert...

McDermott Aviation / Heli-Lift Australia Eurocopter SA365N1 Dauphin 2 Helicopter N38MD 'Helitack 429' Calls into Emerald and Longreach Airports "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Thursday 14 December, McDermott Aviation / Heli-Lift Australia Eurocopter SA365N1 Dauphin 2 helicopter N38MD 'Helitack 429' was noted passing through Emerald and Longreach Airports while ferrying from its Sunshine Coast base to Mount Isa.

UPDATE!  On Friday 15 December, N38MD continued from Mount Isa to Darwin, calling into Tennant Creek and RAAF Base Tindal (Katherine) for fuel on the way.

Of interest, N38MD was one of five Eurocopter AS365 N3/N2/N1 helicopters - N82MD, N94MD, N38MD, N61MD, N93MD - that were acquired by McDermott Aviation / Heli-Lift Australia on medical retrieval and other general charter work.

On Friday 15 December, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Search and Rescue Sikorsky S-76A helicopter VH-LAH was noted passing through Mackay and Gladstone Airports while heading South from Townsville to RAAF Base Amberley.

VH-LAH is owned by Lloyd Helicopters and operated by CHC Helicopters Australia, and is one of a number of choppers used for RAAF Search and Rescue missions. On this ferry flight, it was noted using radio callsign of "Choppa 42".


The Exercise finished this week and featured a mass departure of some 14 RAAF McDonnell Douglas F/A-18A/B Classic Hornet and British Aerospace (BAe) Hawk 127 jet aircraft from Townsville early on Thursday 14 December.  They were heard refuelling with RAAF Airbus A330-203 / KC-30A (MRTT) A39-004 "Dragon 16" over inland Central Queensland as they flew South to Williamtown.

It looked to arrive from Townsville via airwork at Cairns. 

After a short while on the ground, A37-002 looked to depart to Tamworth and points South.  Like its trip North the previous day, the Challenger was heard to be flying as "Envoy 29".

"Butterflies..." "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

"I think humans might be like butterflies; people die every day without many other people knowing about them, seeing their colors, hearing their stories... and when humans are broken, they're like broken butterfly wings; suddenly there are so many beauties that are seen in different ways, so many thoughts and visions and possibilities that form, which couldn't form when the person wasn't broken! So it is not a very sad thing to be broken, after all! It's during the times of being broken, that you have all the opportunities to become things unforgettable! Just like the broken butterfly wing that I found, which has given me so many thoughts, in so many ways, has shown me so many words, and imaginations! But butterflies need to know, that it doesn't matter at all if the whole world saw their colors or not! But what matters is that they flew, they glided, they hovered, they saw, they felt, and they knew! And they loved the ones whom they flew with! And that is an existence worthwhile!"

Lions Rd reopens to traffic after bridge works "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

The Lions Rd on the Queensland and NSW border has reopened to traffic after bridge work  closed the popular motorcycle route from January.

It was supposed to be closed to traffic for only six months, but bad weather has forced delays until December 15, according to Roads and Maritime Services.

Lions Rd bridge work delays 2018 TTA new concrete bridge

Heavy traffic

Now that it is open, heavy traffic will be permitted on the road as the picturesque wooden bridges some single lane have been replaced by modern, two-lane, concrete bridges. They will have no load limits, allowing trucks and caravans to use the route.

While the work will now keep the road open in flood times, it may become a slower trip with riders hindered by slow-moving trucks and caravans using the shorter route.

Kyogle Council says the new bridges will help the local timber and beef industries, so we can expect logging trucks and cattle transports on the road.

The alternative route along the Mt Lindesay Highway and Summerland Way almost to Woodenbong is 24.3km longer, so many other interstate trucks and grey nomads may also start choosing the hilly Lions Rd.

Tourism industry

Council says the bridges will help the tourism industry, but it certainly wont help motorcycle tourism if the road is open to big trucks and caravanners.

Organisers of the Lions TT to postpone their September event blamed the delays to the opening of the road on the cancellation of the event this year.

Readers who have been following popular food trends will no doubt have heard of the increasingly popular Chinese food of the moment, malatang (literally spicy soup). With quite a few stores serving it now, I was keen to get a second taste following my intriguing experience at Chongqing street food several weeks ago. Luckily for me, the Tomcat family and I were invited by Narati Noodle and Grill to try out their malatang and other foods.

A vicious cycle towards extinction: Hunting and trade can push even abundant wildlife populations to the brink "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services announcement in November that it was lifting a ban on the import of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia an order President Donald Trump said in a tweet two days later that he had put on hold was merely the latest flashpoint in a debate that has been raging for years. Proponents of trophy hunting insist that it generates revenue that can be directed towards conservation efforts and creates incentives for local populations to conserve particular species. Opponents counter that there is no research proving these claims to be true and that there are better alternatives, such as eco-tourism, the benefits of which are more established and do not rely on killing animals for sport. According to the Matthew Holden, an applied mathematician at University of Queensland in Australia whose work focuses on how human behavior reacts to and impacts conservation policies, we dont know enough about how trophy hunting affects wildlife populations to say with any certainty whether or not the legalization of the transport of elephant trophies could drive African elephants to extinction. Both sides of the trophy hunting debate make seemingly logical arguments, but actually very little is known about the social and economic side of trophy hunting and thats a big concern, Holden said in a statement. Holden is the lead author of a study recently published in the Journal of Theoretical Biology that adds a significant new dimension to the debate, however. He and a colleague at

Kamikaze Teppanyaki "IndyWatch Feed Seq.eat"

Kamikaze Teppanyaki, Westfield Garden City


Anyone reads the free weekly Chinese newspapers that can be collected in Sunnybank? Although I cannot read Mandarin and barely speaks Mandarin now, I enjoy looking through the advertisements particularly regarding opening of new restaurants or even what is up on offer!

Ahhaha, thanks to my MIL, Kamikaze Teppanyaki had a voucher for 'Buy 1 get 1 free' for bento, ramen or udon meals. After dropping off Grace at the in-laws, Mr and myself made our way to Garden City to have lunch at Kamikaze. As we were there right at the lunch opening hour, we were the first customer to arrive. A menu was given and I so want a bento set and ordered the unagi, and the prawn tempura ramen.

Untitled
Menu
Sitting outside, we could see one chef getting the teppanyaki table ready and soon after could see him performing 'fire ball'. Well, he was entertaining other guests with his culinary fire skills.  


Our meals arrived shortly and I was happy with the unagi bento set. It came with sides of garden salad, gyoza, spring rolls and seaweed salad. I love grilled eel and I think this hit the spot! If only there was more of the sauce for the rice as well. The gyoza and spring rolls are all right, tasted better with the dipping sauce. As for the garden salad's dressing, it was not something I expect. It tasted more like grated ginger and garlic dressing, which was OK.

Catching up with John Young "IndyWatch Feed Qld"


I caught up today for a pleasurable few hours in the Sunshine Coast hinterland with bush naturalist extraordinaire John Young.




John is something of a legend in the birding community. It is well-known that he and I have had our differences over the years, but with the benefit of hindsight, everyone acknowledges they might have done things differently in times past. We move on. Whatever our differences, I've always regarded John as arguably Australia's most skilled bush naturalist. His uncanny ability to track down birds in difficult circumstances is widely acknowledged. John is doing some excellent field work these days as a senior ecologist with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

Now they tell us! Climate warming to weaken wind power in northern hemisphere, increase in Australia: study After building 341,000 wind turbines, mostly in the Northern Hemisphere, now climate modelers reveal that winds will decrease in the Northern Hemisphere! Warming temperatures caused by climate change are set to weaken wind energy in the northern hemisphere, a study shows, lessening the amount of wind power produced for wind farms. However the southern hemisphere would see a boost in wind, which could potentially turn north-eastern Australia into an attractive investment for energy companies. Rush, invest your money now. The theory called polar amplification has the success rate of a coin toss. Buy a wind farm in NE Australia! Luckily wind speeds are not also influenced by cloud cover, jet streams, oceans currents, forest growth, atmospheric tides, solar factors, magnetic fields, ozone levels, cosmic rays, or butterflies.

1829 - Thomas Peel rocked up at the Swan River colony with 300 settlers. They were, however, too late to be eligible for the land grant for his colonisation scheme.

1852 - 1921 A lot of boring as batshit legal mumbo jumbo legislation was being twittered about the corridores of various parliaments throughout the Island of Oz.
I culled them to prevent you all from nodding off into your coffee.

1852 - Colonial Secretary Sir John Pakington authorises NSW Vic SA & Tas to draft new separate constitutions providing for an elected lower house and a nominated upper house.

1875 - A Bill in NSW Parliament granting married women the right to own property was rejected on the grounds that 'it would undo the God-founded institution of matrimony'.

1900 - HMS Royal Arthur delivered the goods when it off-loaded the first Governor-General of Oz, Earl of Hopetoun, in Sydney.
Who proceeded to commit The Hopetoun Blunder and we shall never speak of this unfortunate event in his presence again.....
