This week...

According to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease, yet 90% of Australian are unaware of this fact. Brain cancer survival rates are low and have hardly changed for 30 years, despite significant improvements for other types of cancer. This week’s cover story is about the family of much-loved little Canberra girl, Annabelle Potts, who succumbed to brain cancer earlier this year, aged just five, after a twoyear battle. We thank Annabelle’s parents, Kathie and Adam, for sharing their story of heart-break and resilience. Inspired by their daughter’s selfless spirit, they now advocate for better access to treatments and services and more funding for research specific to childhood brain cancer. The family will be taking part in the local Walk4BrainCancer next month to help raise awareness and funds. Turn to page 28 for more. Reasons to be grateful this week include a run of exceptional live theatre – opening nights of Bell Shakespeare’s sparkling interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing and Opera Australia’s brilliant production of West Side Story at Canberra Theatre Centre, and a Sunday matinee of local theatre company Dramatic Productions’ hilarious rendition of The Producers at Gungahlin. Plus there were tickets to the Socceroos on Wednesday, and I delighted in a few catch-ups and some ‘me time’, gazing at the clouds, contemplating the meaning of life ... - Julie Samaras

news Native, heat-tolerant trees best for beating urban heat Yellow box and kurrajongs were some of the top ranked trees to beat the heat in a report which assessed 211 tree species used in Canberra’s urban spaces that was released earlier this month. The Urban Tree Species report, commissioned by the ACT Government and undertaken by the ANU Fenner School of Research, identified the best tree species to improve Canberra’s urban tree canopy and adapt to rising temperatures. “Growing trees in urban environments is about more than just species selection,” the report stated. “In an increasingly challenging urban landscape, planning and infrastructure must support these carefully selected trees species to ensure they have the adequate resources (water and soil) and

hospitable growing conditions.” The report showed a warming climate will intensify the urban heat island effect and have a significant effect on the health and resilience of trees in the urban forest of Canberra. “Climate change projections for Canberra, such as NARCliM and CSIRO Analogue, suggest temperatures could increase between 2°C and 4°C by 2090,” it stated. “It is clear that both introduced and native species, especially eucalyptus, are suitable for Canberra’s climate change future.” The report assessed and ranked tree species on a range of climate factors including drought tolerance, frost tolerance, extreme heat tolerance, weed potential and allergen potential. It found the overall list of

species used in Canberra’s urban spaces is currently suitable, but recommended trialling other native trees such as lemon-scented gum, spotted gum, wilga and silky oak. It also recommended that oriental plane trees be used more sparingly due to allergenic pollen. Canberra’s Living Infrastructure Plan, released last month, outlines best practice in regard to keeping Canberra cool in a warming climate, and sets out how we most effectively go about increasing our urban tree canopy cover from 21% to 30%. ACT Minister for Climate

Change and Sustainability, Shane Rattenbury, said it’s critical that we design our city to deliver a more sustainable and liveable Canberra for the future. “Improving our urban tree coverage will not only help to reduce urban heat but will enable more green spaces and increase our natural biodiversity,” the Minister said. “Growing trees in an urban area requires careful consideration of location, quality of soil, how it will be supported by water, and its heights and characteristic must be considered to ensure longevity.”

Floriade attracts strong visitor numbers

Bentley ‘pawses’ to take in his surrounds at the Heart Foundation’s early morning walk on Dogs’ Day Out on Sunday 13 October, the final day of Floriade 2019. Image supplied.


Bunches of tulips and other flowers were delivered to hospitals and aged care homes on Monday 14 October after Floriade finished for another year. Head gardener Andrew Forster and his team cut the flowers in readiness for their post-event deliveries, after what was another successful year for the annual month-long celebration of spring. This year’s Floriade ran from 14 September to 13 October and Sarah Boyd, Assistant Director Events Delivery for Events ACT, said there were strong visitor numbers overall. The Heart Foundation’s early morning walks attracted close to 500 people during Floriade, which equates to about 1,500km walked. On Sunday 13 October, Dogs’ Day Out, 30 people and 34 pooches attended the walk. Ms Boyd said from observations

and talking to attendees, there was a considerable number of people visiting Canberra for Floriade. “We know from previous years about 50%, or 200,000, visitors come from interstate or overseas,” Ms Boyd said, with the event bringing in just under $40 million to the economy. The after-hours ticketed event, NightFest, held on 3-6 October, was well attended with the Friday night close to a sell-out. A new initiative this year, Floriade in the Suburbs was also well received. “We haven’t looked at the data in terms of converting it (attendance at Floriade in the Suburbs) to attendance at the event,” Ms Boyd said. It is also unknown what the future has in store for the suburban concept. “Based on our experience this

year and the positive feedback, we would really hope that it would continue.” Overall, Ms Boyd said the “weather was very kind to us” which assisted the attendance figures with about two days impacted by rain. “But I’m always surprised. People still come out; they just come prepared with their umbrellas and raincoats.” In addition to the flowers, Ms Boyd said the event is also about strengthening local partnerships and showcasing the Canberra region. “We have fantastic local and regional producers to be able to showcase and it is a really powerful part of what we are building for the event,” she said. “It is not just beautiful flowers but all the other things that Canberra has to offer.” - Allison Turnbull

capital hill Living in a free country ustralians rightly pride themselves on living in a free country. Few could disagree with Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton, comparing and contrasting China and Australia and concluding the Asian giant is far from being free. The problem is his unnecessary provocation of our major trading party. Diplomacy is a critical commodity in statecraft. China has just celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Communist revolution led by Mao Zedong. Australia has been doing business with mainland China for the best part of the last 60 years, and over that time, China has remained a one party authoritarian state. Although its economic liberalisation in the 1980s led many to hope democracy might follow, it hasn’t. But it is now, by a huge margin, our biggest trading partner, the destination of

30% of our exports. The Chinese embassy in Canberra took an extremely dim view of one of our most senior minister’s “anti-China rhetoric”. In a statement, the ambassador said “we strongly condemn his malicious slur on the Communist Party of China, which constitutes an outright provocation of the Chinese people”. If Dutton was looking to sound tougher on China than the man who denied him the Liberal leadership, Scott Morrison, he succeeded. Morrison quickly sought to sue for peace. He tried to defend Dutton by saying his comments “just simply reflect the fact that we’re two different countries”. He continued, probably more in hope, “I think our relationship with China will always remain positive, because it is focussed on the things that we agree on”.


There are sure to be more “provocations” in the months ahead, especially with the prodemocracy protests in Hong Kong showing no sign of ending. And the government has any number of China hawks prepared to speak out. Indeed one, senior backbencher and chairman of the powerful House of Representatives Economics Committee, Tim Wilson, even flew to Hong Kong to participate in the protests. In the meantime, it would be good if our government spent more time making sure our free country fully lives up to the tag. It is showing a marked reluctance to open itself to the full scrutiny of the parliament. Morrison shut down the parliament ahead of the election and the sitting schedule is scandalously sparse. There have been fewer than 40 sitting days since the start of the year when


both houses have sat together. Boris Johnson in Britain couldn’t get away with the same attempt to avoid the Westminster parliament sitting. Peter Dutton proudly proclaimed “in a democracy like ours, we encourage freedom of speech, freedom of expression and thought”; except on his watch, whistle-blowers – calling out wrongdoing – face ever harsher criminal penalties. And despite some window dressing when he instructed the federal police to be alert to the freedom of the press in pursuing journalists, nothing has been done to scrap or amend the laws criminalising some reporting. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty and not just against external enemies.

news ACT Greens propose lowering voting age Lowering the voting age has come up for discussion again with the ACT Greens suggesting optional voting for 16 and 17-year-olds in the 2020 Territory election. ACT Greens Democracy spokesperson, Caroline Le Couteur MLA, said the call was in part prompted by the school strikes for climate change which saw thousands of young people take part. “It’s clear that young people are more engaged than ever in our democratic process. These students – residents of the ACT – are concerned about their future but frustratingly aren’t able to vote,” Ms Le Couteur said.

“16 and 17-year-olds can legally work fulltime. If they are working, they pay taxes. They can drive a car, have sex and make medical decisions about their bodies. They can join the Army, Navy or Air Force. They can sign a lease, or join a political party – yet they can’t vote. “If young people wish to take part in our democracy, they should have that option. We should give them a chance to have their say where it counts most – at the ballot box.” Questioned if the decision to lower the voting age would benefit the Greens, Ms Le Couteur said she didn’t believe it would “necessarily be the case”. “I would assume that any member of a political party would hope that their policies are policies that would work for young people … I see this as a push for democracy.” Based on data from the last census, the ACT Greens estimate that this would allow at least 8,500 persons aged 16 and 17 to vote in the 2020 ACT election. When contacted about the ACT Green’s proposal, the ACT Electoral Commission referred Canberra Weekly to their submission to the Select Committee

Inquiry into the 2016 ACT election and Electoral Act. Their submission recommended retaining the minimum age of voting of 18. The Commission reasoned that reducing the minimum voting age to 16 in the ACT would take it out of line with all other Australian jurisdictions, while they also raised legal implications of compulsory enrolment and voting for young people. “We certainly don’t want a situation where young people are fined for not voting,” Ms Le Couteur said. “The Greens 100% support Australia’s compulsory voting, I think that’s one of the more positive things about our democracy, but we do recognise young people have different levels of interest and maturing not all at the same rate.” Based on the Commission’s understanding of the relevant legal provisions, their submission said “if the Assembly wished to provide for voluntary enrolment of 16 and 17-year-olds, the Commonwealth parliament would need to amend the Self-Government Act accordingly”. The Commission’s submission also highlighted the need for additional resources related to extending and maintaining the ACT electoral roll.

news ACT Government books buoyed by bumper tax revenue The 2018-19 financial year saw the ACT Government take in $1.816 billion in tax revenue, up on the $1.602 billion brought in over 2017-18, according to the Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate’s Annual Report 2018-19. The $214 million increase year on year constitutes a 13% rise in tax revenue. Headlining the revenue rise is an 11%, or $70 million boost to their general rates and land tax, which was $695.88 million in the last financial year. The Government puts their revenue boost down to increases in land values; and to more properties being subject to land tax under legislation as a result of budget initiatives introduced in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 budgets. The ACT Government’s payroll tax intake jumped by $76.9 million, bringing in $656.34 million in 2018-19, up from $579.49 million in 2017-18, which was put down to a stronger ACT labour market.

The introduction of the Betting Operation Tax on 1 January 2019 is another factor attributed to the increased ACT Government income. The Betting Operation Tax takes 15% of the net wagering revenue received by betting operators for bets placed in the ACT, or bets made by ACT residents. Curiously, the ACT Government’s traffic fine intake dropped from $27.46 million in 2017-18 to $23.89 million in 2018-19. The Government attributes this reduction to construction activity (e.g. construction of the Light Rail), which affected the use of fixed and red-light traffic cameras. However, they were able to recover $2.19 million of that lost traffic fine revenue through an increase in parking fines. Much to the frustration of local drivers, the introduction of increased enforcement activity, including the introduction of additional licence plate recognition systems is what the Directorate attributes the increase in revenue to.

Climate affects breeding Warmer temperatures linked to climate change are having a big impact on the breeding habits of superb fairy-wrens, according to researchers at the Australian National University (ANU). The study looked at the breeding season of superb fairy-wrens living in the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra. The research was led by Dr Lei Lv, who is visiting ANU from Sun Yat-sen University in China. Dr Lv said warmer temperatures in early spring mean the birds will start breeding earlier than they normally would. If temperatures rise too high in mid-summer, they will also finish breeding earlier. The fairy-wren breeding season usually runs from around September through to February. The researchers also found when a female fairy-wren starts and stops breeding can have an impact on how successful they are. The research is part of a long-term study on the fairy-wrens in the Botanic Gardens that has been running for over 30 years, led by Professor Andrew Cockburn at ANU. The study has been published in the journal Global Change Biology.

news Snow gum murder mystery

Summer swimming season

Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) are asking the public to help investigate a phenomenon that’s killing Australia’s iconic snow gums. Dr Matthew Brookhouse says very little is known about ‘snow gum dieback’, despite it being widespread throughout the Australian Alps. “We think it’s caused by infestations of Phoracantha beetles,

Outdoor swimming facilities – Dickson Pool and Manuka Pool – have received some work ahead of the 2019-20 summer swimming season. Dickson Pool has a new perimeter fence and upgrades to the retaining wall in the beach volleyball courts, while temporary upgrades are underway to improve the forecourt. Manuka Pool has undergone extensive works to ensure the pool meets modern health standards as well as retains and protects the original heritage design elements.

which tunnel in and feed within the host trees,” Dr Brookhouse said. Snow gum dieback is most common in high elevation areas, between 1,600m and 1,800m. Because of the scale and remote nature of the affected areas, Dr Brookhouse said observations from ‘citizen scientists’ are invaluable. Trees affected by snow gum dieback are easy to spot. The infestation typically starts in the upper branches and moves towards the base of the tree. The beetle larvae make deep, horizontal incisions in the tree as the bark dries out. A snow gum dieback survey has been set up so the public can add their findings. It was established with the help of the Atlas of Living Australia’s BioCollect program. The survey can be accessed by downloading the BioCollect app. People can also upload data online.

ACT Minister for City Services Chris Steel said more off-leash areas have been added across the ACT including in Gordon, Kambah, Farrer, Narrabundah, Charnwood and Bonner. He reminded all dog owners they are required to have effective control of their dog. “This applies to both on and off-leash areas, with on-the-spot fines of $250 and a maximum court ordered penalty of up to $2,400. Owners who let their dogs off-lead in an on-leash area may be fined.” To view the new dog off-leash and swimming areas, visit actmapi.act.gov.au

Recycling to Latvia Rethinking waste is not only beneficial to the environment but also the hip pocket for 11-year-old Jim Hodgson. A member of the Luminescence Children’s Choir, Jim is fundraising

for an overseas trip with the choir to Latvia in 2021 by reaping the rewards of the ACT Container Deposit Scheme. Jim collects eligible drink containers from his neighbours

each week and returns them to receive 10 cents for each one, and has already raised about $500 from his endeavours. “I saw what my friend James [Jayatilaka] was doing with his Cans in Crates business and thought it was a great way to save up for the trip and help the environment,” Jim said. Jim’s mother Heather is supportive of her son’s efforts and believes the community “are happy to help a kid who is showing a bit of initiative”. “At first I was nervous about him going around by himself so I would go with him,” Heather said. “But everyone knows him now so he kind of goes on his rounds by himself.” Jim dropped off flyers he had made to his neighbours asking if they would be willing to help him by setting aside their empty containers for him to collect. Pushing his handy trailer,

Jim collects the containers on Saturday mornings, sorting as he goes, with being out in the fresh air adding to his enjoyment. Heather said it has been a good experience for Jim, teaching him the idea of “a bit of work pays off” while there are added benefits of math skills and socialisation. “Jim is really enjoying his recycling venture and collecting bottles from neighbouring streets. In just a few months, Jim has already returned 1,500 containers,” she said. While the young self-starter is currently fundraising towards his choir trip, long-term he wants to raise money for a car as well. Since launching in the ACT in June 2018, more than 27 million drink containers have been returned and recycled through ACT CDS. There are 21 return points across ACT.

Kathie’s daughter Annabelle was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an aggressive brain tumour, in December 2016 and passed away on 16 January this year aged five. “I did think if she (Annabelle) died I wouldn’t be able to continue fighting,” Kathie said, but on seeing other families go through similar experiences, “something lit up inside me”. “Ever since then I’ve been trying to get change to happen.” Where the Potts family were told treatment could provide “nine months, if you were lucky” of time with Annabelle, parents in similar circumstances are now given a 9-12 month timeline. “They talk about this tumour in months,” Kathie said. “There is a less than 1% survival rate over five years.” Annabelle went through 27 rounds of adult radiation, one round per day for five days per week, in a bid to “help shrink the tumour to help us make memories”. But Kathie said she and husband Adam weren’t keen “to just make memories but to live life” and looked into what options were available to help Annabelle. The family eventually ended up spending time in Mexico for treatment, although Kathie said “I didn’t want to go to Mexico to get some form of hope” but there was little else available in Australia. “The whole time Annabelle was sick I was fighting to get treatment in Australia,” Kathie said. “You need to be able to try more experimental drugs and combinations of drugs, but with the red tape in Australia, it’s not going to happen unless there’s change.” However, change is happening,

albeit slowly. Kathie acknowledged the approach of Zero Childhood Cancer, which takes a tumour sample and tests to see which drugs are most likely to be effective to develop a personalised treatment plan, as well as the increase in funding for research. The Federal Government announced in September an additional $7 million in research funding, to help support children and their families living with childhood brain cancer. This is in addition to the $2 million in National Health and Medical Research Council funding recently announced for brain cancer research projects focused on treating DIPG. The Potts family are also aiming to raise funds and awareness through their involvement in Walk4BrainCancer. The whole family, including children William and Juliette, will be taking part in the event on Sunday 10 November with their team, Love for Annabelle. For Kathie it was an easy decision to become involved. “The main reason we continue raising awareness is because Annabelle was such a selfless little girl and would want us to continue fighting for all the other kids fighting brain cancer,” she said. Organisers hope that the Canberra Walk4BrainCancer event will raise more than $50,000. Funds raised at Walk4BrainCancer are used by Cure Brain Cancer Foundation to fund world-class research, impactful advocacy and widespread awareness. Walk4BrainCancer is on Sunday 10 November at Stromlo Forest Park.

one-off column 4 ways women can improve their financial futures Women must take responsibility for their financial literacy before settling down, or risk a future riddled with money problems, according to one of the nation’s most awarded mortgage brokers, Zippy Financial Director and Principal Broker, Louisa Sanghera. Ms Sanghera is committed to improving the financial literacy of women to ensure their economic futures are as bright as men’s. “The financial literacy of women has been below par for too long now, so it’s time we all made a dedicated effort to change that situation,” she said. “Society has changed significantly since the days of a man being a household’s main breadwinner, which is why it’s so important that women take charge of their finances early.” Ms Sanghera said it was imperative that young women established savvy money practices before meeting their significant others. “Each person has their own hopes

and dreams, which is perfectly fine; however, if women are going to improve their financial futures, they must adopt a number of smart money strategies,” she said. “Preferably this would happen when they are young and single, but they can be instigated at any age – to help prevent financial stress following a relationship breakdown in particular.” In fact, a recent survey by State Custodians Home Loans quizzed people nationwide on how financial difficulties would be handled following a stressful life event such as job loss, divorce, serious illness or a death in the family. Almost half of all single women (46%) and specifically three in five single mums (60%) said that not knowing enough about money or who to turn to for help would be the biggest hindrance to getting their finances or their housing issues back on track.

However, Ms Sanghera said this situation could be remedied for future generations by following four simple strategies. 1. Be prepared Women need to take responsibility for their own financial education, including creating a budget and keeping to it. “That way, women will know what is coming in and going out each month whether they are single or in a relationship,” she said. “They should also create a financial contingency plan and a roadmap to follow in times of financial stress, such as job loss or divorce.” 2. Start saving Everyone should establish a regular savings pattern from when they start working, but it was particularly vital for women. “No matter how small, by saving money incrementally, it creates a vital financial buffer that will help to see them through difficult times. By adopting this regular savings regime, women will have access to emergency funds when they are needed the most.” 3. Be realistic During a relationship breakdown, women also need to be realistic about whether it was affordable for them to remain in the family home. “We all have emotional attachments to our homes but sometimes that attachment can cause future

financial harm. By moving on into another home, the capital released can create a financial buffer, plus it can prevent unmanageable debt, which can have a damaging impact on your family as well as your emotional state.” 4. Seek advice As the research also found that nearly 50% of single mums had received poor advice from wellmeaning family and friends, Ms Sanghera said women should seek professional advice. “Finance professionals are objective and can advise women on the best course of action, whereas friends and family are clearly more emotionally involved. Seeking advice early, whether you are single or in a relationship, will be another element of your financial literacy, which can help to set you up for a better future.” About the author: Louisa Sanghera is owner and manager of Zippy Financial Group, recently named Mortgage Brokerage of the Year in the Your Investment Property Magazine Property Investor Awards 2019. Zippy Finance and Ms Sanghera also won the Best Broker and Best Customer Service Individual Metro awards in the 2019 The Adviser Australian Broking Awards.

sport Bloomfield called up for PM’s XI

Dan Christian and Peter Siddle are the first ever cocaptains of the Prime Minister’s XI side. They will lead the team in a Twenty20 fixture against Sri Lanka at Manuka Oval on Thursday 24 October. Getty.

Djali Bloomfield will be the first local player to play in the PM’s XI in four years, named in the squad for next week’s T20 clash against Sri Lanka. Bloomfield, a proud Indigenous Australian and right-arm fast bowler, has proven himself to be a successful T20 bowler, taking 11 wickets at 15.63 with an economy rate of 7.8 in last year’s 2nd XI T20 competition for the Comets. Cricket ACT CEO James Allsopp welcomed Bloomfield’s selection, acknowledging Canberra “has a proud history of local players competing and performing admirably in the PM’s games over the years”. “I am thrilled that Cricket Australia and the PM’s office have recognised this and provided Djali with the opportunity to create his own slice of history around our traditional match.” The Prime Minister’s XI squad will be coached by former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie, who will oversee an outfit boasting five players with international experience, including co-captains Peter Siddle and Dan Christian. The rest of the squad includes Ben Cutting, Chris Green, Harry Nielsen, Jordan Silk, Chris Lynn, Jason Sangha, Fawad Ahmed and Daniel

Fallins. The ACT’s Daniel Leerdam is 12th man. Cricket Australia national talent and pathway manager, Graham Manou, said: “There is an excellent blend of experience and youth among this group. We anticipate that emerging players such as Djali Bloomfield, Daniel Fallins and Jason Sangha will take great benefit from appearing alongside the likes of Chris Lynn and Fawad Ahmed.” The PM’s XI match is just the start of a bumper summer of T20 cricket for the Territory with Cricket ACT announcing there will be “an impressive line-up of 10 international matches and three Sydney Thunder matches, all at the historic Manuka Oval”. The matches include the PM’s XI v Sri Lanka match on Thursday 24 October, as well as an Australia v Pakistan men’s international (5 November), and a number of women’s internationals including five matches of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The Prime Minister’s XI will play Sri Lanka at Manuka Oval on Thursday 24 October with play starting at 7.10pm. Tickets are available at cricket.com.au/tickets/ canberra

Training athletes of tomorrow Three-time Paralympian and world record holder, Michael Roeger, recently helped mentor the next generation of athletes with disabilities at the Coles Little Athletics Australia National Under 15 Camp in Canberra. Roeger was joined by fellow Rio Paralympian and Canberra athlete Sarah Walsh in providing training

and coaching tips to the young athletes, including Ginninderra Little Athletics Centre’s Amalie Leslie and Peter Vermeulen. The local duo attended the camp for the first time as a result of Coles’ National Banana Day initiative in May which saw Coles donate 10 cents from every kilogram of bananas sold at its supermarkets to Little Athletics.

Sustainability at the fore in Mittagong Just under two hours up the Hume, Mittagong, the famed Southern Highlands stop off, is renowned as a charming option to stretch the legs along the drive to Sydney. What’s lesser known is just how viable a weekend getaway option the quaint, historic township is. In fact, just dropping in for lunch fails to do Mittagong’s wealth of dining options, outdoor activities, locally produced beer and wine, and art galleries due justice. With local fresh produce and sustainability a key driver behind all of the various food and beverage providers we visited, Mittagong’s onto a winner. Canberra Weekly journalist Denholm Samaras spent a weekend in Mittagong as a guest of the Southern Highlands Food and Wine Clusters to take in some of its charms.

Sturt Gallery and Café Sturt Gallery and Café offers a variety of internationally renowned classes and courses in a number of artistic mediums that see people travel from across Australia and the globe to participate in them.

Glass Café While Alpaca is their specialty, the lovely Leanne and her accommodating kitchen is able to cater to any dietary requirement. Beloved by locals, Glass Café is an

excellent place to get a taste of fresh Southern Highlands produce. Leanne says a lot of local hobby farmers will drop off some of their harvest to her, which then goes into their many delicious menu offerings. 84 Main St, Mittagong T: 4872 2640 W: glasscafe.com.au

Karen says this hands-on approach, along with clear communication, is part of the reason for her success with many of her clients referred by friends or agents. “I’ve got repeat clients coming back to me and now I’m also seeing their children.

Weeknight wonders

Our food writer Libby Kimber brings you some super easy (and healthy) meals for the week ahead. Dinner, sorted.

Vegan lentil bolognese The 12 Step Mind-Body-Food Reset by Jessica Sepel, published by Macmillan Australia, photography by Jeremy Simons. Serves: 4 Prep: 10 mins Cook: 50 mins 2 Tbsp cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 1 carrot, finely chopped 2 celery stalks, finely chopped 723g jar sugar-free Napoletana sauce 400g tin brown lentils, drained and rinsed well Small handful of basil leaves

Heat the oil in a large, deep non-stick frying pan over medium–low heat. Add the onion, carrot and celery, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are very soft. Add the sauce, lentils, basil and 250ml (1 cup) water, and stir until the mixture comes to a simmer. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until the mixture has reduced into a nice rich sauce. Serve right away (see suggestions) or store for the week ahead. Allow the bolognese to cool before portioning in airtight containers. This will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Serving suggestions • Add 2 teaspoons of sweet paprika and ½ teaspoon of dried chilli flakes to the batch of bolognese while reheating, then spoon it on top of roasted and halved sweet potatoes. Serve with diced avocado and coriander leaves scattered on top. • For a non-vegan option, spoon into large grilled field mushrooms then sprinkle with a little goat’s feta. • Toss through zoodles, brown rice pasta or pulse pasta and top with a few fresh basil leaves (pictured). • For a non-vegan option, spread the batch of hot bolognese evenly around into a large, deep frying pan. Make 4 indents in the sauce and crack an egg into each one before cooking over medium heat until the eggs have just set. Serve with lemon wedges. 46

BOOKPLATE + Pollen advertising moment

Delight in the beautiful surrounds of the Botanic Gardens at Pollen Cafe while enjoying a smorgasbord of festive treats.

Book a classic cocktail party at BOOKPLATE at the National Library of Australia and take in the amazing architecture and views of the lake.

Celebrating Christmas in style at two iconic Canberra destinations For Tracy Keeley, owner of BOOKPLATE at the National Library of Australia and Pollen Cafe at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, the festive season is one of her favourite times of the year, not least because it’s a time of gathering and celebration with colleagues, friends and loved ones. “There’s something so special about this time of year. As soon as the spring weather arrives, it’s like a switch has been flicked and everyone is ready to come together again after hiding away for much of the winter,” Tracy says. “For me, creating an atmosphere that allows people to enjoy each other’s company, as well as their surrounds, is so fulfilling.” She also acknowledges that planning a festive season do yourself can be stressful, with many things to consider like location, catering, dietary

requirements, décor, table settings, music, drinks and more. It’s this that has spurred her on to imagine something extra special to allow Canberrans to leave the stresses of planning behind and focus on enjoying the festive season. Going beyond standard Christmas lunch fare, both BOOKPLATE and Pollen offer special celebration packages that allow guests to sample delicious food and wines while enjoying time in an iconic Canberra destination. “At BOOKPLATE, it is such a privilege to be able to serve guests against the backdrop of one of our premier cultural institutions, the National Library,” says Tracy. “We take full advantage of the amazing architecture by offering a classic cocktail party on the terrace with those beautiful marble columns as the backdrop, not to mention the views of the lake. And the indoor

dining experience is just as special with views to the beautiful marble foyer.” For those with a soft spot for nature and the outdoors, Pollen provides the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the beautiful surrounds of the Botanic Gardens while being served a smorgasbord of delightful festive treats. “There’s nothing quite as charming as a garden party,” says Tracy. “At Pollen we strive for a feeling of casual elegance, and there’s even lawn games on offer for those who love to enjoy some frivolity.”

Both BOOKPLATE and Pollen Cafe place a strong emphasis on quality food and beverages, with menus carefully curated by their talented chefs.

Both venues place a strong emphasis on quality food and beverages, with menus carefully curated by a team of talented chefs. Both offer Cocktail Party and Festive Dinner packages with exclusive use of the venue, which makes it all that much more special.

Emerging Canberra actor Damon Baudin says playing Nicky, a transgender woman, in Fragments is the most challenging role he’s taken on in his career.

The interwoven monologues in Fragments present powerful stories about young people facing their mental health issues while navigating their way through adolescence. Photos Kerrie Brewer.

Fragments connecting the dots Eight different stories. Each coming from a different experience, with different challenges, and all of which have been impacted by mental health in their own way. Fragments is written by award-winning Canberra-based author and playwright, Maura Pierlot, and is based on a series of conversations she had with young people aged 13 to 18 in Canberra and beyond. The interwoven monologues that comprise Fragments are 50

imagined stories that touch upon common issues facing teens today. Presented at The Street later this month in conjunction with Mental Health Month ACT, Fragments reveals powerful stories about young people balancing emotional, mental and physical situations as they navigate their way through adolescence and secondary school. The production’s ensemble cast features Damon Baudin and Linda Chen amongst six other young, emerging Canberra actors, giving

voice to a diverse assortment of young people. Baudin says his character Nicky, a transgender female, is one of the most challenging roles he’s ever taken on. “She knows who she is, but it’s very much about the outside pressure of the world on her, and it’s time to make those finals steps. “I was very hesitant, I wanted to get it right … it’s going to be a challenge … given that it’s such sensitive material as well, but I feel very confident with the whole team at The Street. “I’m terrified, but looking forward to it at the same time, and I think it’s all coming together.” Chen says the open, collaborative process of rehearsing with a new work, especially with the writer Pierlot present, is an exciting process of tweaking the script and their performances accordingly. “I always love working with new pieces and new work, there’s always such an exciting discovery process,” she says. “And then being able to work with the person who originated those ideas, it’s always a privilege, and kind of daunting. You take on a bigger sense of responsibility because they’re there in the room.” “The cool thing about a text in development, it’s a living, breathing

thing still, we don’t just have to bring it to life as actors, they see something on the floor and will rejig it,” Baudin adds. Director Shelly Higgs says the open collaborative rehearsal process allows everyone to bring something to the table. “It’s been about collaborating, allowing them to explore and find it as a group so that it makes sense to everyone,” she says. According to Higgs, the whole show deals with the outward public brave face mentality juxtaposed against the internal, private suffering that many with mental health issues face. “They all have different things, they’re united by the fact they feel alone, so actually the whole play is about a search for connection. “It’s also that ‘well no-one else could be feeling what I’m feeling’, whereas really if they just look around they realise that other people are dealing with stuff too,” she says. Higgs says the work, at its core, is a journey of disconnection to connection. “Fragments is a great name for it because there’s this idea of being a piece or of not being a whole person, and missing something, but I think what they’re actually all missing is connection,” she says. Given the universality of its subject matter, and the relatability in regard to the spectrum of mental health issues being explored, Higgs says everyone could benefit from seeing this work. “Young people, just seeing that other people might be feeling the same things that they do, like anxiety … having all these fears, especially in today’s world, kids are besides themselves. “Mental illness is still stigmatised, so it’s really important that people see these stories, because they’ll act as an avenue for them toward better understanding.” Fragments will be performed at The Street Theatre, City West, 23-27 October; thestreet.org.au - Denholm Samaras

The Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire will host the 2019 Out and Loud choral festival on 24-28 October, with choirs from across Australia, Auckland, East Timor and Fiji converging to celebrate their pride through song.

Canberra Qwire proud to host Out and Loud Later this month, the Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire will host the 2019 Out and Loud choral festival, celebrating pride in the LGBTIQ+ community through music. This will be the first time Canberra hosts Out and Loud, which has occurred at a number of host cities around Australia every three years since 2001. The festival is the only occasion when choirs from most Australian capital cities and Auckland meet to share the joy of singing, socialising, inspiring and learning from each other. Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire musical


director, Karen Wilden, tells Canberra Weekly that Out and Loud is also about the Qwire giving back to their community and the broader Canberra community that have supported them generously throughout its 26-year existence. “That’s by telling stories through song, giving people something to go away and reflect on, but also being entertained,” she says. Wilden says the communal element of the Out and Loud festival is something she’s enjoyed greatly in the past, and looks forward to bringing to Canberra. “Auckland hosted in 2016, and we had the most

fabulous time. We would go out to this big food hall, sit down, and you’d just find someone with a choir shirt on from another choir … We’d end up singing songs while waiting for our supper. “Those connections are about the individuals as much as they are about the music; music is a great binding thread throughout the LGBTIQ+ community.” Wilden says she’s also excited to show off what a “beautiful city” Canberra is to all of her guests. “We’re not the Canberra bubble, we’re not just full of politicians. We’re full of real people with everyday issues, the same as everyone else. “Bringing a bit of that human face to Canberra, that’s something I’m very proud to do having been in Canberra all my life.” This year, choirs from Fiji and East Timor will join the other seven choirs during the festivities for the first time after extensive fundraising efforts through GoFundMe to cover their travel costs. Wilden says bringing the Fijian and East Timorese choirs means everything to her, and that it’s a very satisfying and powerful thing for the Qwire to achieve. (continued page 54)

time out (from page 52) “In Canberra we’re very lucky because we have an incredibly supportive community. We saw that through the marriage equality debate, and in so many other ways over the 26 years the choir has been in Canberra,” Wilden says. “Our community members in East Timor and Fiji don’t have that level of support, and they face persecution and intolerance that some of us have never experienced, so it means everything to bring them here to be a part of a supportive community. “It’s very hard to get them out here, but very satisfying to know they’re going to get to experience the same support that we have every day.” Out & Loud 2019 will comprise performances at a number of significant venues such as the Museum of Australian Democracy, the National Portrait Gallery and

the National Gallery of Australia across the festival. “Being able to sing in Canberra’s iconic venues, we felt that was very important to showcase Canberra,” Wilden says. The final performance will unite all of the choirs and festival-goers at the ticketed Gala Concert at Llewellyn Hall on Sunday 27 October 5pm. It will feature a world premiere performance of a new composition by award-winning composer and musician, Sally Whitwell, along with performances by all of the participating choirs and a massed choral event. “There’s a lot of variety and a lot of fantastic singing to be seen there,” Wilden says.

Now showing Hustlers (MA15+) Dorothy (Constance Wu) works at a strip club to make ends meet while also supporting her elderly grandmother. Soon Dorothy sees the powerful Ramona Vega (Jennifer Lopez) master the stage and is taken in under her wing. Based on a true story, the movie sets the scene of the world of strippers and the men they serve in the vein of Goodfellas and Casino. With lush production values, quick editing and off-camera monologues, we learn the layout of the land in a glamorous manner. We see Ramona and Dorothy (aka Destiny), quickly become larger than life and, thanks to the global financial crisis, come crashing back down to earth just as rapidly. Facing a return to their original fates, the women put their destiny into their own hands, and seek to

take from the odious Wall Streettypes that they used to dance for. It is there that the women lose any moral high ground, and also where the movie takes an unfortunate dip: the hustle is no Ocean’s 8, and belies any creative problem-solving. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), Hustlers focuses more on power dynamics as opposed to gratuitous titillation a la Showgirls. The amazing costumes and dance sequences bolster the women to make their former customers their prey! Verdict: While the main perspective of the narration is confused due to an interview device, Jennifer Lopez’s strong and multifaceted performance takes centre stage. 3 stars. - Luke McWilliams

Ned Kelly was meant to be a serious blockbuster but, due to a weak performance from Jagger that was critically panned, the movie was a flop and remains a cult hit to this day. Despite bombing, the film looks fantastic (due to its scenic filming location) and the locals had a ball while the town was transformed back into the late 1800s. Anyone attending is encouraged to bring along any memorabilia they may have souvenired or tell anecdotes relating to their experiences during filming. There is also an exhibition of Ned Kelly memorabilia supplied by the Braidwood Museum. The screening is at Braidwood’s National Theatre, 26 October 6pm.

Take 5: Rae Morris The mastermind behind her eponymous magnetic makeup brush line, Rae Morris is an internationally renowned makeup artist, best-selling author and four-time Australian Makeup Artist of the Year. Her work has graced the covers of Vogue, Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar. She was trained by Richard Sharah – the man behind some of David Bowie’s iconic looks – and was the longest serving Makeup Director for L’Oreal Paris (2003-2013). Rae Morris will present a masterclass at Canberra Centre on Saturday 19 October; canberracentre.com.au


What’s your favourite makeup look for spring/summer? Monochromatic makeup. I love taking soft shades and using them everywhere, from lips to cheeks

and even eyes, particularly peachy pastels that feel like spring and soft feminine caramel pinky shades. What are the 3 must-haves in any makeup bag? Brushes are a must-have. Contoured shapes will cut blending time in half. I always say to makeup lovers to invest in good brushes and look for not-so-expensive (but good quality) makeup. My brushes are the world’s first patented magnetic makeup brushes, with Japanese point technology (available at www.raemorris.com and Mecca Cosmetica). An amazing sunscreen – even better if it’s a sunscreen and foundation in one as they make the skin look super hydrated. And tweezers, for those ‘stray eyebrows’ that appear above our lips or are nowhere near our brows, if you know what I mean! What advice would you give to your younger self when you were just starting out?



Learn from the best, as soon as possible. I was lucky to do that with the late Richard Sharah – I just wish I did it earlier. If you want to work with the best creatives in the world, don’t expect them to be normal. So, learn to deal with all types of people at any time! Skin is everything. I wish I knew how important skincare is and to address skin concerns without always reaching for a cover up, for myself just as much as clients. Who is your favourite celebrity/supermodel that you’ve ever worked with and why? The best were Pink, Kelly Rowland and Jess Mauboy. They are all such incredible, strong women who are so kind and supportive of others. You’ve had an amazing career so far; what would you consider to be your career highlight? There are two. Finding the last living Japanese “Master of Craft”



to make my brushes. It wasn’t an easy road but to know I’ve produced the world’s first magnet makeup brushes with the endorsement of other respected artists like Nikkie de Jager, Peter Philips and Mario Dedivanovic means so much. And writing four best-selling books, despite failing school and being dyslexic, warms my heart.

No need for injections! This noninvasive procedure lifts the face and visibly reduces wrinkles. Guaranteed results after one session! DoubleChin reduction, necklifts, and decolletage firming also available!

Tired of waiting to see results from your hard work at the gym? Cryoslimming is your non-invasive alternative for lipo! Thermal shock melts away stubborn fat deposits quickly and safely! Results above after just one session!

Spring into spring carnival With the arrival of spring comes spring racing carnival, so let’s get you ready and springing into that beautiful dress and heels. Don’t panic, I have a great workout that you can smash out and make your legs feel fabulous for race day. The great thing about your legs is that you have to use your legs pretty much every day in some way. So, we can get the legs toned up and looking sharp for your day at the races. One reality is that you cannot “spot reduce”; this means that you have to work the whole leg so your legs get toned all over. I have put together a great fast and fun leg workout for you to achieve the best results. Note: • Only have 5-10 seconds rest in between exercises • Maintain movement during your exercises (this means don’t stop moving) • Stay hydrated (during your workout and at the races) Spring carnival workout This workout has a focus on your thighs and calves, making a strong butt and good posture - and I’ve sneaked in two exercises for your arms. • Walking on the spot (high knee lifts) 1 minute • Squats (feet shoulder-width apart and lead back with your hips, like you’re sitting onto a chair) X 30 (pictured) 64


• Starts (in the start position as if you were starting a race and alternate legs back and forward) X 1 minute • Hopping on each leg for 30 seconds • Step-ups (10 with each leg) X 2 • Wall squats (back on a wall and legs at 90 degrees, hold) X 100 count • Heel kicks (kick your heel to your bottom) X 50 • Star jumps X 30 • Alternate leg jumps (stand as if you have taken a step, then jump and alternate your feet forward and back) X 1 minute • Skipping X 100 skips • Toe tap left leg X 20 • Toe tap right leg X 20 • Lunge walk 20m up and back • Skipping X 100 skips • Plank hold X 100 count • Push-ups (on your knees to keep good form) X 30 • Seated dips (sitting up straight on bench placing your hands by your side/ over grasp grip on the bench, lower down until your arms are at 90 degrees and then push back up) X 30 • Seated punches overhead X 50 each hand Keep your workout under 20 minutes. Enjoy this spring workout and your legs will love you.

Inspired By Nature

Anchor the look with natural elements. There’s a growing appreciation for more natural materials and fi nishes – and for good reason. They add warmth and softness to a space, while adding a homely feel.


Use luxe accents to elevate the look. Rich fabrics, such as velvet are on trend and metallic fi nishes are always a winning way. Another trending material that used to be reserved for high-end stores has made its way into affordable décor – terrazzo!


Take advantage of wall space. Ready-tohang art including large abstract prints, photography artwork and oversized florals are a great way to add something more to your existing room.

Vegetables are grown in an enclosed area with raised beds made from recycled pallets.

VizArche includes a variety of exotic and native trees.

Be enchanted at VizArche Alison Archbold of Archbold Design and her partner, Charlie Vizy, purchased VizArche, their 9.3-hectare property with its four gum trees and eight bushes, nearly 14 years ago. Charlie’s prowess in construction and Alison’s aptitude to DIY has transformed this space into a garden utopia. Both love gardening and both are artistic, conventionally and otherwise, in everything they do. As gardens often seem to do, VizArche

has evolved without having had a master plan and with most of the hard landscaping and buildings being made from recycled materials. This doesn’t mean a creative and thoughtful process hasn’t gone into the various spaces they have built and continue to build, by any means. Alison and Charlie have also learned to work with the land rather than against it, including its often rocky profile. Alison said they are aiming for self-

sufficiency through growing their own organic food and trees for firewood. Charlie is constantly on the lookout for local trees and shrubs to collect seeds from, which he propagates and plants on the farm. Vegetables are grown in easy to maintain raised beds made of recycled pallets. Alison has gone from growing a bit of everything to sticking with varieties they eat a lot of and that are highly productive. Several beautiful espaliered fruit trees are planted on the boundary, including a four-way-grafted pear tree. The area is enclosed to protect it from

wildlife, particularly roos, rabbits, parrots and cockatoos. Amusingly, but eternally frustrating for Alison and Charlie, I learnt that kangaroos have target plants which they continually return to and attack after being defeated in battle. Two thriving beehives are housed nearby, for pollinating the gardens and producing delectable honey. Alison said they haven’t harvested honey for the past two years due to the dry weather and therefore tough conditions. She also said they don’t use pesticides on the property, to protect the bees

and other wildlife. An enchanted Birdhouse Forest and ‘Stumpery’ has been established and includes beautiful old Eucalyptus stumps, salvaged from nearby roadworks and artistically placed using a crane. There is also an area planted with deciduous trees, designed to accentuate the sunlight received during the cooler months. Some of the many other features throughout the gardens include the glorious crab apple trees which line the driveway, a giant chess set framed by Rosemary ‘Blue Lagoon’, and

a horseshoe sculpture created by local metal sculptor, Sue Wilmington. All gardens are watered by tank water and dripper irrigation systems, a huge timesaver compared to hand watering in the past. Unsurprisingly, art plays an intrinsic role at VizArche. Alison, a well-known multimedia artist (Trompe-L’oeil, mosaic, ceramics, painting and cards), said art is a great way of adding year-round colour to a gardenscape, an otherwise significant challenge in dry climates such as ours. Resident alpacas, Dorper sheep, designer chickens and budgerigars also call VizArche home. The team earn their keep by providing manure and entertainment for residents and visitors alike. VizArche will open its gates on the weekend of 19-20 October 10am-4pm, as part of the Queanbeyan Arts Trail. For more: qprc.nsw.gov.au/Community/Arts-Trail

Investors drive home loan demand New data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has revealed that home loan demand continues to rise. The latest data from the ABS reveals that, in seasonally adjusted terms, there was an increase in the number and value of home loans to owneroccupiers and an increase in the value of loans to investors over the month of August, following a rise in July. According to the ABS, 49,792 home loans to owner-occupiers were approved throughout the month of August, an increase of 1.8% on the month prior. Mortgage Choice CEO, Susan Mitchell, said the continued growth in home loan demand is consistent with the turnaround seen in the housing market of late. “The result of the federal election took the potential removal of property tax concessions off the table. “As a result, once-cautious investors may have

been encouraged to put their buying plans in action.” Investors drove the surge in home loan demand over August, with the ABS data revealing an increase of 5.7% in the value of loans to investors (excluding refinance) over the month to over $4.8 billion. Mitchell said policy and pricing on investment loans are now much more favourable. “Conditions have not been this favourable for all parts of the market in some time, with credit restrictions easing and home loan interest rates sitting at record lows following a third cut to the cash rate by the Reserve Bank.”

Charnwood set for 'record growth' Data from Select Residential Property Research Group’s (SRP) suburbgrowth.com.au predicts the Belconnen suburb of Charnwood to see a 27.4% increase, or a rise of $122,949, to its median property price, currently $449,000, over the next three years. This predicted growth sees Charnwood make the list as the only ACT suburb in suburbgrowth. com.au’s Top 10 suburbs for future capital growth list, released earlier this month. SRP’s director of research, Jeremy Sheppard, said the research identified the suburbs with sound market fundamentals, including the economic principals of demand and supply, that apply

upward housing price pressure. “The analysis uses 17 market variables to help us determine the locations with the best chance of superior price growth over the next three years,” Sheppard said. “These suburbs all have a number of desirable features, however, one of the main reasons why house prices are forecast to grow is an imbalance of demand to supply. “The thing is, even if prices end up only climbing by half as much as predicted, such is the nature of forecasting, it’s still a great return on investment over a short period of time.”


Confidence bounces back The ANZ/Property Council Survey for the December 2019 quarter shows that the ACT is leading industry confidence and expectations across most of the segments surveyed. The ACT led the nation on expectations around forward work schedules and capital growth levels across most asset classes. ACT executive director of the Property Council, Adina Cirson, said property industry confidence in the ACT is holding up well despite a national downward trend. “There is an extremely optimistic outlook for the Canberra property market backed up by recent CoreLogic / ABS data shows us weathering the property market storm present in other capital cities. “This is teamed with data out last week which demonstrates that nine in 10 Canberrans made a profit through home ownership, despite other weaker capital city markets,” Cirson said. The December 2019 quarter survey showed a 21-point increase in confidence levels in the ACT, up to 144 points, to be well above all other states and territories tracked. The ACT confidence levels are at their highest point in over 18 months and close to historic highs. “It is great to see the ACT is not only back on track after a significant dip earlier this year – which was tied to uncertainty during the federal election period and mooted APS cuts,” Cirson said. “Now is the time to plan ahead with strategic investment and growth policies which meet the demands of a growing and ageing population, which in turn creates jobs and keeps Canberra punching above its weight.”

The Ridge Open space, tranquil surroundings Watson Negus Crescent From developer JWLand, The Ridge is a boutique collection of luxury townhouses in the northern Canberra suburb of Watson, walking distance to the beautiful Mount Majura Nature reserve. “The Ridge townhouses are designed around four open spaces that provide the residents with a range of amenity, from smaller green spaces to a large entertaining area with barbecues and seating,” says JWLand development manager, Aaron Ackland. “To make the most of the tranquil surroundings, the homes have been designed to facilitate an effortless transition between indoor and outdoor living areas. Expansive windows present a great sense of space and openness in the homes, allowing residents to make the most of natural light and airflow.” Ackland says The Ridge is located

just 10 minutes from the heart of the city, and less than a kilometre to Watson shops. “It’s unique to have a new townhouse-only development in such an established suburb, which makes The Ridge attractive to a large range of buyers, including those already living in Watson, who want an easier lifestyle with less maintenance while remaining connected to community.” The Ridge has taken cues from its surroundings to create a modern take on traditional homes, and Independent Belconnen principal and sales agent, Matt Peden, says the site’s concept, materials and finishes blend natural surrounds with contemporary living. “Slate coloured brickwork, corrugated iron and timber tones mimic the hues of the bushland backdrop,” he says.

“The Ridge is as perfect for downsizers who have lived in large homes in the area for decades as it is for first-home buyers who want to live in an established environment that’s only 10 minutes from the heart of the city.” The interior design of the townhouse also celebrates the surrounds with expansive doubleglazed windows and large sliding patio doors bringing the outdoors in and creating an inviting sense of space and openness. The kitchens are equipped with quality appliances, including a Smeg gas cooktop, oven, rangehood and semiintegrated dishwasher.

“With completion expected for the end of the year, this could be the perfect opportunity to celebrate Christmas and New Years in your brand new home,” Peden says. 3- and 4-bedroom townhouses Starting EER 7.0 Starting price $550,000 View Visit the sales gallery on Negus Crescent, Watson.

Inside, Victorian period features including soaring high ceilings, French doors, fireplaces and generously proportioned rooms have been tastefully combined with modern conveniences.

Upstairs accommodation comprises of four king-size bedrooms and two bathrooms. Downstairs, there are flexible options for office space and selfcontained accommodation. A 9.5 metre saltwater swimming pool with relaxed outdoor living area encapsulates the quality of this rare gem. Situated within walking distance to Cowra’s CBD, schools and entertainment venues, the renowned Cowra Japanese Gardens are a short walk over the hill. Darling Street is one of the town’s older streets and is lined with enormous London plane trees.

The Rocks has amazing district views to the east, south and west; the sunsets from the western verandas are breathtaking. Cowra Real Estate Principal and Sales Executive Stephen Haslam said the ideal buyer is someone seeking a tree change: “A business person, trades person or professional looking to swap the chaos of city congestion for the benefits of a relaxed country lifestyle. “This home provides the opportunity to live in a piece of history with all the hard work finished. The space is amazing for entertaining all your friends from

the city as well. “The house would also suit someone who wants to run a business from their home or, with minimal work, it could be utilised as a B&B,” Haslam said.

The Hunger Games

Saturday, 9GO!, 7pm, M (2012)

Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games is certainly no fluffy piece about wizards or werewolves, and director and co-writer Gary Ross (Seabiscuit) does a magnificent job of bringing the futuristic world of Panem to life. To fight for survival in a world ravaged by drought, famine and war, teenagers are forced to battle to the death live on television while the rest are forced to watch.


pick of the week Terminator Salvation Monday, 7MATE, 8.30pm, M (2009)

It’s now clear why tantrum-prone thespian Christian Bale (pictured) was so upset on the set of Terminator Salvation. As resistance fighter John Connor, the Welsh actor once again plays second fiddle to a handsome Aussie – Heath Ledger stole The Dark Knight from under him, and Sam Worthington is easily the best thing about this visceral thrill-ride. Helena Bonham Carter pops up as a sickly scientist.

Call Me By Your Name Saturday, SBS, 8.30pm, (2017)

This remarkable film from Italian director Luca Guadagnino, based on the novel by André Aciman, is one of the most beautiful and transcendent love stories in recent cinema. During the summer of 1983, 17-yearold Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and 24-year-old American graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer, pictured) form a friendship at Elio’s parents’ mansion in rural Italy. A perceptive, vivid reflection on love and desire, Call Me By Your Name is simply not to be missed.

celebrity birthday EMILIA CLARKE 23 October 1986 The year ahead is an ideal time for forming new bonds, perhaps business relationships, friendships or social contacts. Emilia will be attracted to those in high positions, with strong personalities or notably younger than herself. This is the ideal time to clear away any dead wood in relationships which may have caused misunderstandings or unhappiness. Whether in love or business, she’ll find those born under the signs of Aries, Leo or Aquarius will influence events.


in the stars ARIES 21 MAR – 20 APR



both in your public and family life.

The focus is on relationships, both personal and professional, and power struggles, manipulation and control issues are likely. To avoid issues of all sorts it is necessary to be conscious of your actions and speech. While it’s important to say what you mean, sometimes it helps to be tactful.

This is an ideal time to learn to relax and meditate and to travel on a series of inner journeys. It’s also a good time to listen to your instincts and intuition. Financial matters which involve other people’s money will become important as will their attitude to such matters.



LEO 23 JULY – 23 AUG

Your confidence continues to grow and your physical energy can be maintained. Power equals responsibility and you’ll have to prove your worth once you’ve achieved a measure of success. Now is an ideal time to clear away any dead wood in relationships which could have caused unhappiness.

On the professional front, you are best advised to be focused on the bigger picture and to remember that you can achieve a lot more as a team than individually. So this week, be wary of stepping on the toes of trusted colleagues and superiors.

You will undoubtedly be busy trying to keep up with replying to messages, voicemail, emails and other correspondence. Practical jobs such as cookery, car maintenance and household chores will also be on your mind. If you’re not skilled at these types of jobs you will soon learn the ropes.

GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE Work will be important and you’ll find that either your normal job becomes more interesting or you do something new and highly satisfying. You’ll have to cope with administrative work including emails, and dealing with business associates on the phone will become a feature of your daily routine.


VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEPT Avoid taking any unnecessary risks with your hard earned cash. Feeling moodier than usual, you could find yourself involved in a series of family arguments; in fact, your home could become something of a battleground which suddenly starts to resemble a nest full of egomaniacs.

SCORPIO 24 OCT – 22 NOV The focus in on behind-the-scenes activity. Some of your friends will be going through some tough challenges and you will have a desire to support them, whilst others may find your attitude at times difficult to cope with. You will make achievements as part of a group or a team.

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOV – 21 DEC If you’re not used to working in a structured organisation, you will learn how to; alternatively, you might go from one sort of structure to a completely different one which runs by a different set of rules. You will need to be seen as being respectable

This season is always a good time for a decent spring clean. Extra funds can be made through such things as selling real estate and possibly offloading old artefacts and pieces of junk that have been cluttering up your house. It might be time for a garage sale.

AQUARIUS 21 JAN – 19 FEB As the old adage goes, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. Continue to work at what makes you happy, what your purpose in life is and ask yourself whether what you’re doing really is fulfilling all of your needs – financial, personal, emotional and aspirational.

PISCES 20 FEB – 20 MAR Your physical vitality is strong this month and it would be a shame for you to waste or misdirect it. Apart from your capacity to work hard, this is a time when you could also play hard. Your company will be highly sought after by friends and colleagues.

From two-time Academy Award winning director Ron Howard, comes a documentary celebrating the life of the beloved opera star, Luciano Pavarotti. Pavarotti (CTC) is an in-depth, no holds barred look at the life, career and lasting legacy of the musical icon who sold over 100 million records in his lifetime. Dubbed ‘The People’s Tenor’, Pavarotti was the rare

combination of personality, genius and celebrity. Through the sheer force of his talent, he commanded the great stages of the world, and captured the hearts of audiences everywhere. Featuring rare interviews with his family and colleagues, and never-before-seen footage, Pavarotti goes beyond the icon to reveal the man himself. In cinemas 24 October.

Enter to WIN Canberra Weekly has 10 x in-season double passes to Pavarotti to be won. To enter, email competitions@canberraweekly.com.au with ‘Pavarotti’ in the subject field.

To mark the release of The Keeper (M) on DVD from 23 October, you could win 1 of 5 two-packs for you and a friend. Based on an incredible true story, Bert Trautmann joined the Wehrmacht as a paratrooper at the age of 17. After receiving five medals for bravery, he was captured by the British towards the end of WWII, arriving in north-west England as a prisoner.

A local football manager noticed Bert’s exceptional talent as a soccer goalkeeper. His subsequent signing by Man City brought passionate protests from the people of Manchester, a city that had been severely bombed in the War. Against all odds Bert won over even his harshest critics in the 1956 FA Cup Final during which he broke his neck … and continued playing to secure victory.

My favourite things


Millie brought us love, joy and endless entertainment for four short years before her untimely death a few months ago. Pets have always been an integral part of our family and saying goodbye has never been easy. There’s a palpable void in our house, not for long if our kids have any say.

MOTHER’S PAINTINGS Thanks to my mother, a practising artist and art teacher, I had a paintbrush in my hand before I started school. My mother taught me the power of imagination and the value of selfexpression. She passed away in April but her paintings keep her spirit close.

Maura Pierlot Author and playwright

An award-winning author and playwright who hails from New York, Maura Pierlot has called Canberra home for nearly 30 years. In 2016, Maura received the MPS Travel+Tours Award, Capital Arts Patrons’ Organisation to write a dramatic work on youth mental health, which has developed into Fragments. A former medical journalist, editor of Australian Medicine and business owner, she is now fully embedded in the creative life. In 2017 she won the CBCA Aspiring Writers Mentorship Program for her young adult manuscript, Freefalling. Her first picture book, The Trouble in Tune Town, launched last year at the National Library of Australia, won the 2018 ACT Writing and Publishing Award (children’s category), along with international accolades. She has a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and doctorate in philosophy, specialising in ethics, and still toys with the idea of teaching in that discipline. Fragments will be performed at The Street Theatre, 23-27 October; thestreet.org.au 154

FAMILY Family means the world to me – my immediate family, my extended family overseas and the big family that I married into. Our kids are funny, engaging, adventurous, opinionated and often loud. There is quite a bit of debating in our house, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

KITCHEN TABLE I’m a firm believer that most problems can be solved around a kitchen table. Our table is the hub of our home, and the countless photos of family and friends on display under the glass top continue to spark memories, ideas, laughter and embarrassment!

RAINFOREST We’re blessed to have a rainforest on our property at Jamberoo. It’s a magical place with dappled light, lyrebirds, mossy rocks and dense canopies that make you forget the colour of the sky. The perfect spot for contemplation and renewal.

Audi Vorsprung durch Technik

Scary Beautiful. Their beauty is self-evident. Their power and performance deceptive. Settle behind the wheel and you’ll know something extraordinary awaits you. More than excitement. Unadulterated exhilaration. The Audi S Range, the perfect combination of sport and sophistication. Where performance truly does meet luxury.
