I would like to send you my deepest gratitude for the excellent article published on my exhibition at the Noosa Regional Gallery. It is not only a great representation of my creative work, but also a tribute to the magnificent region we are so lucky to live in.

I would like to comment on the high quality of your magazine - Salt. I read it from cover to cover. One of your reporters Jane Fynes-Clinton needs special mention as her articles have really drawn me in and made me want to investigate further - Salt Winter edition - "Second Chances". Amazing work. Well done to her and to you all.

it was such a pleasure to take time to read SALT while enjoying a Lamkin Coffee (Sunday ritual). I was enthralled with your spring issue. I read it cover to cover... I was inspired by the creatives who try to doing things better...the Jason's of Surfmud...the gorgeous bespoke courset designer Santa Castro...the salty reality check of 'it's about time'...and reading about the whimsical and magical journey of Opal lover Barbra Heide...after reading a recent novel by Di Morresy on Opals, I was so drawn to this story... I love that indulging in SALT magazine adds the bread and jam to my soulful coffee on Sunday mornings!

I am 68 years old and love reading good magazines. Salt Magazine is definitely the best and classiest magazine my wife and I have read and we always keep an eye out for the new publications. We have been living at Halcyon Landing in Bli Bli for 10 months and use Salt to get all the good places to visit, see and eat. It is a little gold mine. I just read the Winter 15 Edition this morning and because of the write up in Salt, we visited Pitchfork for lunch today. It was superb. Thanks to the team at Salt!

Top quality magazine with class art photography, packed full of delightful, most idyllic spaces for bliss visiting. I take a few issues of Salt with me when I travel overseas-to show fellow world travelers where is best to venture in the sunshine- our Sunshine Coast beaches and hinterland are top drawer, world class, as are our artisans and food producers.

I was asked at the markets a few weeks ago what the story behind Frozen Sunshine was and my answer was: "it's our story". Husband and wife, three crazy kids and a decision to make something for ourselves. Now thanks to salt magazine our story is captured in print. No angle, no spin, just our story. We feel so honored to be featured in this beautiful magazine alongside other inspiring Sunshine Coast folk.

Dear Kate I just finished the Winter 2014 edition of Salt that I picked up in Monicaz cafe in Maleny today - I enjoyed it so much, thanks to you and all your Salt-y team! I was also thrilled to see the ad for Compass Institute in the directory pages. It made me decide that I WILL pursue my business idea, so that I can take out my very own third page ad in Salt in the near future. So great to see you supporting Compass! best wishes Patricia Sheehan ps. also LOVED the fashion spread!

Thank you so much for the winter edition of your wonderful magazine! Received our copy this morning and will circulate it at Buddies meetings so everyone can get to read it. Loved the article and the photos – beautifully written and produced. Over the years there have been quite a few articles written and published on Buddies – mainly through the Sunshine Coast Daily – and all well done and much appreciated – but this one is definitely the best yet! So thank you again and pass on our thanks to any others involved as well.

Thank you so very much for the wonderful article you wrote up on our organisation, Smart Pups for Special Needs Children Inc. It was an amazing and sensitive story, with great photos by Kate! Big thank you also for pushing our charity needs of funding etc. Knowing this article will be circulating the coast for some months means a great deal to us for awareness and hopefully more donations! This will also help with awareness for clients who already have their dogs. Hopefully patrons will be understanding and educated to the access for our dogs and welcome these families and their special dog. We have circulated the link on our Facebook (over 3300 likers) and some great comments are coming back already. Can't thank you enough! You are both mega stars to us!!!!!

I love Salt magazine, as do all our customers and visitors to the shop....and I happily give copies to my friends/family who don't live on the Coast...just to try to tempt them to spend more time in this lovely, relaxing part of the world. Anyway, I recently had a much needed camping holiday on Moreton Island.....I set up my hammock, settled in with a nice cool drink and a copy of the latest Salt magazine...perfect peace....and just before I drifted off to dreamland I noticed that I had the perfect holiday photo waiting to be captured...and this is what I wanted to share with you...:) Thanks for all the effort that goes into sharing Salt with us..... it's something really special.

I have just read your article about Chris Raine and his website Hello Sunday Morning. I am a HSMer and signed up for a 12-month HSM. I am now almost 9 months into my HSM and I can honestly say that it is the best thing I have ever done. HSM is not AA, as you rightly pointed out in your article. It's more of a support network for people who want to improve their relationship with alcohol. The people I have 'met' on HSM have been a tower of strength for me and for others who are going through the HSM journey. Chris hit the nail on the head when he started up HSM. The power of blogging with like-minded people cannot be underestimated. I feel supported and loved, without being judged. I think that is the beauty of HSM. I am now at the stage where I am scaling back my blogging on HSM, as I need to prove that I can stand on my own two feet, as far as sobriety is concerned. But I always know that HSM is there if I need it. Thanks again for a great article, and I thought yo

Congratulations on yet another wonderful edition. The scope of your coverage and profiling of local personalities, businesses and places never ceases to amaze me. I really like the way you have been using the Picture Sunshine Coast image to engage your readers and promote interest and no doubt some interesting feedback. From the feature articles to the regular inclusion of recipes, fashion and art, Salt Magazine is truly a feast for both the eyes and mind! I wish you continued success with this and all of your future editions.

I treasure each edition knowing the pages will ooze with health, vitality, freshness, 'food for thought', stunning page layout, warmth, happiness and a generous sprinkling of class and style!

Thank you for the latest edition of Salt. I thought that the whole magazine was fabulous this month (as always) and I was really impressed with the article on the ‘Big Pineapple’ (Sunshine Plantation). The photographs looked wonderful and the one of Princess Dianne and Charles was really eye catching. The article itself was quite broad in coverage and was full of interesting and informative ‘snippets’. I was particularly intrigued by the account of the ‘Gympie Big Pineapple’ as I have often wondered about the connection when I have passed through the area and sighted it at the garage. Congratulations once again to you and all the great team at Salt!

Hi Kate. Firstly congrats on 8 yrs. Can't believe it has been that long. I just love Salt, but unfortunately it doesn't come over to the Gympie region. Is it possible to have it reach us here, or in the Mary Valley...Amamoor, Kandanga, Imbi.If I'm lucky, at times I find it at Kenilworth.

I have just picked up your Salt magazine from a cafe in Nambour. I started reading it whilst enjoying a coffee and frankly was blown away by the content. So much so that I asked the owner where I could get a copy of the magazine from as I don't believe that I have seen it on sale anywhere. She told me that I could have the copy I was reading as they were delivered there on a regular basis. So I have brought it home for a good read and also had a look at your website and particularly your story.

Salt is wonderful! I think it is a beautiful magazine, from the thickness and quality of print on the paper, to the range of articles and photos.

Claire and team at Salt thank you so much for our prize of 2 nights at Spicers Tamarind Retreat at Maleny. My husband Jeff and I have just returned from a very special couple of days away. From the moment we arrived a feeling of relaxation came over us, the grounds and buildings are beautifully presented, we took a couple of lovely peaceful walks in the gardens and down to Gardeners Falls, shouted ourselves our first ever massage pampering at Spa Anise which was heavenly, dined on the most delicious food at The Tamarind restaurant, thoroughly enjoyed our private balcony hot tub spa with wine in hand, had glorious breakfasts one delivered to our room which we savored peacefully with the birds that visited on our balcony. David and all the staff were wonderful making us feel very welcome. We had a once in a lifetime experience and have vowed to put a little bit away in a savings jar every week so we can do this sort of thing once a year to look after ourselves. Cant thank you enough Mele

I remember my first encounter with salt magazine. It encapsulated me with a heart warming story of a local man caring for an injured pelican. Salt is a special magazine that captures the heart and soul of this special place. Yesterday my friend and I went to the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow. I won a double pass through salt magazine. We were both in need of a good laugh and girls night out - thank you SO much we had a wonderful time. The show was awesome, the magazine's amazing and visually spectacular. We'll always remember our fun night out.

My partner and I flew up from Sydney during the week before Easter. The staff were most pleasant and we were lucky to be blessed with great weather and the company of my sister and her family who also spent some time in Noosa with us. Congratulations on your beautiful magazine, I still enjoy reading it and plan to take many more trips to the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland in the future. Actually my partner has been suggesting an eventual move to the sunshine state :) Thank you again for the great holiday

I just love the SALT mag. so full of colour and ripples of information. Love the visuals, photos and local knowledge. I was born in Nambour Hospital in 1949. As a small child I lived along the Beach Road at Maroochy. near the Surf Club. Reading SALT mag. is an adventure to me because the contents is loaded with local information and stories. There are so many wonderful people living in our nooks and crannies. So much talent on our doorsteps. Every issue is brilliant. Thanks SALT for gift.

It's an amazing magazine... my sincere congrats! First found it at Caloundra A&E and wondered whether anyone would see me remove it... (i didn't dare)... then tracked you down online... coming as i do from the UK, i have found salt to be invaluable for that 'local' information that you just don't get from tourist booklets... we're settled now on the coast and we will read the online version avidly... and access the paper copy where we can... keep up the tremendous work. You're fantastic :)

It's great to get new ideas on places to visit or products to try which are featured in Salt or through the Pepper e-zines.

I missed browsing the Salt magazine whilst I was away - Kate you do such a great job as editor. Have already pencilled in some venues and events to attend in the New Year. Salt is such a brilliant magazine to put on the coffee table, so many pick it up and find it difficult to put down, i.e. visitors and locals. Have a wonderful Christmas!

The spirit of the event and what it means to the students, families and staff of our schools as well as the all the members of the Sunshine Coast community who support and participate came through very strongly in the photos and the text.

I am not involved with this directly-however,I work in Onclogy and Palliative Care. The Hinterland has such a positive vibe-there is a sense of peace and beauty that is healing. Your magazine reflects the underlying sense of artistry and creativity that is the hinterlnd.

Hi There Salt Magazine   My partner & I recently enjoyed 7 months living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast (in the lovely town of Woombye, where we built our home & had thougt where our life was going to be), unfortunately circumstances have meant that we have returned to Sydney (only 6 weeks ago) and I//we are definately missing the lovely calm & pace that we were only briefly able to enjoy.   I loved your magazine Salt & read it cover to cover (several times) and then even mailed it onto my mum who lives in Wagga for her to also enjoy reading. I can only commend you on what a great Magazine you have produced for the area & as we were only 'new' to the Coast, it was wonderful to be able to read about places to see & visit, that even people who live on the Coast were unaware of - I only wish I would have had more time to 'explore' & enjoy.   Hopefully we will be able to return to our home & the lovely Sunshine Coast, one day.

I like your magazine, it presents our region very professionally, however I question the astuteness of your Facebook fans in the ice cream survey. They missed Milano Gelati in Caloundra, absolutely the best product in Queensland bar none. They have won the best dairy dessert at the RNA show two years running and have walls full of awards in the shop. Absolutely original Italian product, no premixes, 110 year old family recipes and NO, I'm not connected with the business just one of a growing number of passionate regular customers.

Also, I have very much appreciated your "going the second mile" in even including a personal thank you note to me with the most recent Salt magazine. Many thanks, Kate, for that little note and also many thanks for your magazines.

Thank you to Kate and all the contributors for delivering such a valuable magazine. I have recently started up my own small portrait and wedding photography business and have salt to thank for five bookings received as a result of an advertisement in the birthday edition. Keep up the good work :)

Just a quick thank you for the copy of your Salt Magazine- Spring edition. The article on shipwrecks on the Sunshine Coast is great and all of the photos look wonderful. I have shared the magazine around the staff table and as usual it proved a great talking point. Carol Hawley Heritage Library Assistant (Nambour) Sunshine Coast Libraries

Recently scanned a copy of SALT at Raw Energy in Cotton Tree and found it an excellent promotion of the Sunshine Coast. Don't know of any other publication that presents the Sunshine Coast lifestyle in such an impressive, glossy magazine that spans all areas of the Coast. Am wanting to send it to relatives interstate to show them what Sunshine Coast living is like.

I just wanted to say that the new salt mag looks fantastic, you and the rest of your crew do such a great job and it is always an interesting and professional magazine that people love to read. Also thanks for the great ad position and other promo shots you put into the fashion pages we always get an amazing response from our ads and pictures.

Congratulations to salt magazine on it's 5th birthday. Keep up the great work of showing the rest of the world just how wonderful our little part of the world is here on the Sunshine Coast and its hinterland. Congratulations especially for including the hinterland in salt, as often we feel we are the forgotten part of the Sunshine Coast. The last two issues especially have been a great advertisement for us, especially in Kenilworth.Francesca and her family at the Kenilworth Bakery are so thrilled that you featured one of her cakes in your 5 great cakes on the Sunny Coast. Thank you, as you'll never know just how much that means to them, as they have been there only a year. To us the bakery is the best in Australia.

Hello Kate, Wow, thank you so so much for the beautiful glossy photo of my mango and passionfruit cake, featured in your 5th birthday edition of your gorgous magazine. I have received a lot of positive feedback from readers around Noosa and in the hospitality industry! A lot of people are commenting on this edition as being one of the best they have read, so congrats to you and your team!

We love Salt and wait expectantly for the next edition to come out, we have copies in our Reception area for Guests and Residents to read or take away with them to read and refer to at their leisure, we also have copies in our holiday units which we are always replacing as guests “take” them when they leave, how terrific is that!! Thank you for producing a magazine which reflects the Sunshine Coast way of life.

The Quality of your magazine is mirrored by the excellent photography. A photograph of our boat, Lady Keppel, featured in the "Winding River, Wooden Heart" article of your autumn 2010 issue of Salt. What a wonderful surprise! Susan Brookes

Thanks for your great article about FROMART cheese in the Salt magazine. I had a lot of people ringing up and many customers at farmers markets in Noosa and Yandiona referred to it! So there must be a lot of SALT readers out there! And my kids love the article too, so gain, THANKS, well done!

Good job again! From the very first issue you've had me with such unbridled energy and sweetest of vision. Thanks to all involved for setting the bar in publishing and being so real and enthusiastic, so professional and adept at dancing with the devil (ie it can't run on air), while always staying the people's angel. Kate and her team deserve every award and will "live long and prosper". Excellent to see it's web accessible and that works beautifully too. Salt could also be uploaded onto ISSUU - so a few million more readers can understand or love the Sunshine Coast and hinterland like you all do.

How delicious is this magazine!? Even the feel of the pages is beautiful. I am a professional artist and was fortunate enough to have one of my sculptures featured in the Summer 2009/10 Edition in the Art Space section. A tourist took the magazine back to his home in Victoria, saw my work, rang the Gallery Eumundi and bought the work! It just shows that Salt magazine is a "keeper" and something to be savoured - congratulations to Kate Johns and her team for putting together a really lovely and quality piece of work. with thanks.......Di West

Yesterday I received the summer issue of Salt. Enjoyed it so much. It was like having a trip to the Sunshine Coast. The cover reminding me of the many times we had driven along the rim road after turning off from Landsborough. The photography throughout the magazine is excellent. So naturally I am looking forward to the Autumn issue.

Salt is truly an inspiring magazine. The editorals are well written and not pushing products but telling home grown stories. The magazine keeps me up to date with what is going on at my favourite desitnation, plus providing insight into all that is unique. It is hard to keep up with what is happening and new at the coast, I really use it as my little black book!!!

Dear Kate I love your latest magazine. It’s so newsy with very readable items. I have just finished reading the Steig Larsson’s third book ‘The Girl Who Kicked The hornets’ Nest’ and I was feeling a bit lost ---- but luck for me I found Salt. I read it from cover to cover. The stories are so readable and informative. The photos are world class – so creative. The recipes and pictures made me feel like a mid-night snack. Thanks for the enormous amount of work you and your team manage for each publication. It is much appreciated by all lucky enough to find a Salt magazine. Merry Christmas to you all! Lily Evans
