This week...

Birthdays are ace. (I prefer them to the alternative.) As another one rolls around (happy birthday to me, today!), please indulge my reflecting on a few lessons learnt of late. Firstly, to quote Albert Einstein: “The more I learn, the more I realise how much I don’t know.” Learning about any subject unlocks the knowledge that there’s so much more I don’t know on it – let alone the myriad subjects I’m totally oblivious about. Fortunately, I’m open to learning and happily go through life with my L (learner, not loser) plates on. Secondly, follow charm. Life is so precious, it’s uplifting to spend time doing what you enjoy and with people whose company you enjoy, starting with your own good self. Thirdly, prioritise your health and wellbeing. Taking time to nurture yourself and making healthier choices is the best health insurance to invest in. Reasons to be grateful this past week include a delightful media tour discovering the Hills of Hall Wine Trail that is right on Canberra’s doorstep, Musica Viva presenting Nevermind in concert at Llewellyn Hall, Tammy Ven Dange’s Escape No More product launch with lots of dogs and their humans at Pushys Café, a wonderful VIP lunch hosted by the gracious Philippine Ambassador in her courtyard during Windows to the World, the comedic genius of Tim Ferguson, and capricious spring weather. - Julie Samaras

news New theatre, EPIC stadium flagged in infrastructure plan The ACT Government’s updated Infrastructure Plan outlines their key priorities over the next five to 10 years, with new education facilities, healthcare and transport options at the fore. The city’s ‘big three’ cultural and recreational infrastructure items – a new theatre, rectangular stadium and national convention centre – are prioritised in the document. Between $100m and $250m is flagged for revitalising the Canberra Theatre precinct in the next five years, making it first cab off the rank. A new rectangular sports stadium with a capacity of 25,000 and costing $250m-$500m, and a national convention centre, also priced at $250m-$500m, are flagged as longer term projects. The plan mentions Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) at Mitchell as a potential space to house a future Canberra stadium. “As EPIC is located on the light rail corridor, is also closer to the city centre and has larger sites available, it may be most beneficial to co-locate a new stadium with other exhibition and community facilities at EPIC,” it reads.

Healthcare Healthcare facilities will be upgraded across Canberra to cater for the rapid growth in demand in recent years. Current estimates suggest that between 2017-18 and 2031-32, the ACT’s public hospital admissions will rise by 53%. Canberra Hospital will soon undergo significant expansion and renewal with the $500 million SPIRE project, while a broader campus modernisation program is a longer term project. Improved and upgraded northside public hospital infrastructure and further expansion of mental health acute care facilities and services to meet demand will both be considered for funding over the next five years.

Education The future investments in education infrastructure outlined prioritise delivering new and expanded schools. A key project is an entirely new CIT campus, with $100m-$250m appropriated to replace the existing CIT facility at Reid. Woden Town Centre is being considered as the

location for the new campus. A new high school at Kenny, Gungahlin; a P-6 School with Early Childhood in Whitlam, Molonglo; and Narrabundah College modernisation are all projects up for consideration in the next five years.

Transport Walking, cycling and public transport are to take priority in the ACT’s future transport planning and investment. Light Rail Stage 2, faster rail between Canberra and Sydney, and stronger freight links to better utilise Canberra Airport are all listed as priority transport projects over the next five years. A spend of $150m-$300m establishing new bus depots in Tuggeranong, Mitchell and West Belconnen to support a zero emissions fleet is flagged as a longer term project.

Other longer term transport projects include: $250m-$500m on major intersection improvements in Gungahlin; $250m-$500m on infrastructure facilitating land releases for the new suburb of Whitlam in Molonglo; and $100m-$250m on Anzac Parade/Parkes Way grade separation.

Population growth The plan forecasts continued rapid population growth in Gungahlin, the Inner North and Molonglo. It says the Molonglo region is now at the start of its growth curve and will add an estimated 25,000 people by 2029, while the Inner North’s strong growth will continue to accelerate as new housing supply is added along Northbourne Avenue and other parts of the CBD. - Denholm Samaras

More victims of crime seeking support Growing awareness of the ACT Human Rights Commission has resulted in an increase of people accessing their services, according to the Commission’s 2018-19 annual report. According to the report, the Victims of Crime Commissioner and Victim Support ACT assisted almost 1,700 people affected by crime, including: a 30% increase in the number of new clients assisted under the Victim Services Scheme (up from 404 in 2017-18 to 524 in 2018-19); and their court support volunteer program provided over 250 hours of court support to almost 100 clients. The Victim Services Scheme provides a range of clinical and nonclinical services to individuals who have experienced crime in the ACT. Victims of Crime Commissioner Heidi Yates, who has been in the role 12

for 18 months, said her focus has been on trying to improve access to frontline services, “recognising that there are a whole lot of people who might find it challenging to access our service”. Ms Yates said they successfully advocated to employ two full-time, permanent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victim liaison officers, as well as reallocating resources for a dedicated cultural liaison. “We are aware that there is a whole range of people in the community that tend not to access mainstream services,” she said. “A large number of people are coming through the door but we stopped to ask who isn’t coming through the door … or are we not offering a service that’s accessible to them.” Ms Yates said other initiatives to raise awareness include driving

stronger engagement with frontline workers in the disability sector as well as strengthening connections with LGBTIQ+ organisations. The annual report also highlighted a 16% increase in applications to the Financial Assistance Scheme, and payments totalling $2.56 million made to over 350 victims injured by violent crime. Ms Yates said crime can have a long-term impact on a person’s health, ability to maintain employment and family relationships; the scheme is designed to “help with immediate need and covering cost of economic loss”. She said there has been a significant increase for the financial assistance scheme, which is funded by the ACT Government, since it was overhauled three years ago. According to the report, in 2018-19

community members lodged 453 new financial assistance scheme applications, a 16% increase in applications compared to the total number received in 2017-18 (392 applications) and a 319% increase compared to 2016-17 (108 applications), the scheme’s first year of operation. The report highlights an increase in payments across all three categories of support: immediate need payments, economic loss payments, and recognition payments. If someone has been a victim of crime, Ms Yates encouraged them to get in touch “if you would like information or help” in understanding what your options are.

A tinder dry argument he penny is finally dropping that the old cycle of droughts and floods and a return to normal seasons no longer applies. The peak farmers’ organisation gets it, that’s why the National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has been so critical of the federal government’s failure to come up with a long-term new drought strategy. The bipartisan strategy put together back in 1992 clearly is no longer fit for purpose. Its presupposition was that farmers only had to be helped survive until the drought breaks and then, when the rains come, everything would be “as you were”. But finally, the warnings we have been hearing from the scientists – the CSIRO, the experts at the Australian National University and the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate

Change – are ringing painfully true. The “land of drought and flooding rains” is certainly still with us, but the droughts are longer and more severe and so are the storms. The seasonal pattern is being turned on its head; bushfires in Queensland and NSW in late winter and early spring are surefire evidence of this. These changes are not only being experienced in Australia but around the planet. Now that the NFF has made its submission to the government, Drought Minister David Littleproud says he will soon unveil the government’s new, long-term strategic plan. If it doesn’t take into account climate change and doesn’t also accept the need to begin reducing emissions and take up this cause internationally, it will be an abysmal failure.

But as one regional Liberal MP put to me, even if we finally did get serious on climate change, the problem will not be solved tomorrow. No, we as a planet and as a nation have wasted at least 37 years ignoring the problem, denying it or playing short-term politics with it. In 1992, the UN’s Rio Earth Summit spelled out the threat of global warming. The Hawke Government paid lip service to emissions reduction and the fossil fuel lobby began gearing up to debunk the science to safeguard its considerable vested interest. This was a worldwide reaction. Talk about fiddling while the planet burns. In the meantime, the drought has become a tinder dry argument particularly for the coalition parties. The Nationals are furious the Prime Minister wants to own the issue

at their political expense. Scott Morrison is seen as muscling in on their turf. What is making the junior coalition partner particularly furious is that by not giving them more of the limelight on drought relief announcements, he is making them more vulnerable to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation and the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party. The Shooters are gearing up to have a concerted go at the Nationals in the federal Murray Darling Basin seats at the next election. A blank cheque for farmers is surely not the answer. Facing reality is and the viability of many farms needs to be honestly faced.

Canberra Avenue in Fyshwick took out second spot on the AAMI Crash Index for the second year in a row. Photo: Kerrie Brewer.

New and familiar roads top accident hotspot list The Monaro Highway in Hume has been named the worst crash hotspot in Canberra for a second year running by the 2019 AAMI Crash Index. “The Monaro Highway carries a lot of heavy vehicles, local traffic, as well as travellers driving into and through Canberra to other locations. This can lead to traffic

congestion, frustrated drivers and increased crashes,” said AAMI Head of Motor Claims, Anna Cartwright. On a positive note, the number of car accidents on the Monaro Highway at Hume did reduce by more than 20% from 2018 to 2019. Canberra Avenue in Fyshwick again took out second spot on the

list, with the stretch of Monaro Highway passing Fyshwick rounding out the top three. “The top two locations have been battling it out for the #1 spot for some time as Canberra Avenue at Fyshwick previously held the dishonourable crown as Canberra’s worst crash hotspot for three years from 2015 to 2017 and Hume’s Monaro Highway was always #2. “In fact, these two stretches of road both have at least 75% more crashes on them compared to the #3 spot on Canberra’s list,” Ms Cartwright said. There were six new entrants to AAMI’s crash hotspots list for Canberra this year. With the Monaro Highway in Hume and Canberra Avenue in Fyshwick holding their places from 2018, Monaro Highway at Fyshwick at number three, and Benjamin Way at Belconnen in number four were new; Gundaroo Drive, Gungahlin dropped from third in

2018 to fifth this year; followed by new entrants from places six to nine: Northbourne Avenue, Canberra; Barton Highway, Hall; Mugga Lane, Symonston; and Anthony Rolfe Avenue, Gungahlin; while Gungahlin Drive, Gungahlin dropped from fifth to 10th. AAMI’s list is the result of analysis of more than 340,000 motor accident insurance claims across the country from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019. AAMI Behavioural Economist, Phil Slade, said car accidents more commonly occur when a driver is less than 10 kilometres from home. “When drivers are close to home, or on a familiar route, they can get too comfortable, and find themselves daydreaming or getting distracted. “Driver distractions such as mobile phones and digital devices are big issues, because they take away from your ability to react,” Mr Slade said.

Jeff Brewer (right), a partner at MGI Joyce|Dickson, with his client Daniel Conroy, owner of The Knox Made in Watson.

Success your way As your advisors your success lies at the heart of ours

Daniel first started the café in 2015 and has been steering the rapid growth of the business from the beginning. “In our first week we had 7 staff, by the end of week two we had 25,” said Daniel. With rapid growth comes the challenges of managing additional staff, purchasing additional resources and expanding the premises to keep up with the demand. Jeff Brewer, a partner of MGI Joyce|Dickson, and his team have been able to assist Daniel to manage the growth of The Knox Made in Watson by providing advice and guidance tailored to the

business’s needs. Daniel has worked with the MGI team for a number of years and believes, “their consistency in delivering a quality service, excellent advice and their ability to compliment my naturally risky personality, especially around investments, with a considered approach ensures they are the right fit for my business.” The Knox Made in Watson recently expanded, adding the tenancy next door, and undertook a major refurbishment in order to keep up with the demand of their growing business. The MGI team and Jeff in particular were on hand to assist Daniel in determining the appropriate timing the business was in a financial position that the expansion and refurbishment would be successful. With Daniel saying “having access to an expert team to rely on, who regularly work with other businesses in similar positions, helps to provide the confidence needed to make significant business decisions.” With

Jeff adding, “Part of our role is to identify areas for consideration that the client may not have thought of, to help them have the confidence to achieve their goals.” The Knox Made in Watson stands out from their competitors due to their genuine care for their customers and the community. For Daniel, being in a position to give back to the community is a key reason he started his business, saying “we want to be known as a business that gives back more than we take.” When asked what the future of The Knox Made in Watson looks like, Daniel said he “would like to cement the brand in the market and be well known for their local partnerships with not only their suppliers, but the community.” He would also like to refine the business, with the advice and assistance of the MGI team, working on key performance areas and utilising the great visibility of business performance to help stay in control, and indeed capitalise upon the rapid growth. This is an ongoing process but Daniel’s partnership with MGI gives him confidence that his goals will become a reality. If you would like a no-obligation consultation with MGI Joyce|Dickson to learn how they can assist your business, phone 02 6162 2600 today to arrange an appointment.

Renowned by locals as a great casual dining café, The Knox Made in Watson has quickly cemented itself as a café of choice in Canberra. Daniel Conroy (owner) has a passion for using local produce, local suppliers and giving back to the community, and that is resinating with their customer base.

Fifth fatality on ACT roads The ACT’s road toll has risen to five following a fatal collision involving two vehicles in Barton, which occurred on Monday afternoon, 21 October. About 2.10pm, a car and a fire truck collided at the intersection of Brisbane Avenue and Bowen Drive. The female driver of the car was cut from the vehicle

and treated at the scene by ACT Ambulance paramedics before being transported to hospital where she died a short time later. ACT Policing’s Crash Investigation and Reconstruction Team and WorkSafe are investigating the circumstances of the collision. A report will be prepared for the coroner.

Coolo wins enviro award Cooleman Court has been awarded ‘Champion of Champions’ at the ACT Government’s Actsmart business awards, recognising their Coolo Recycling Warrior’s program and Mirvac’s sustainability action plan. Coolo Centre Manager, Irini Daglis, said the centre was now able to divert over 88% of its waste from landfill, with over 60 tonnes a month recycled across organics, cardboard and mixed recycling categories.

Ms Daglis said participating in the Actsmart initiative had helped the centre implement training programs for their retailers. Since starting the work in 2017 when recycling rates were around 44%, the centre is on track to be recycling more than 90% of its waste by the end of 2019. Other sustainability education for retailers has also helped deliver savings in both water and electricity usage.

German wine claims top gong German winery, Weingut Georg Müller Stiftung, claimed the top award at the 20th annual Canberra International Riesling Challenge – Best Wine of the 2019 Challenge – with its 2018 Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese VDP.Grosse Lage. The wine was also named Best Sweet Riesling and Best European Riesling. More than 500 Rieslings from nine countries – Australia, New Zealand, USA, Germany,

France, Canada, Chile, the Czech Republic and, for the first time, China – were judged at this year’s Challenge. Judging resulted in 57 Gold Medals, 104 Silver Medals and 184 Bronze Medals. The trophy for the Best Riesling from the Canberra District was won by the Hunter Valley’s Brokenwood Wines with its 2019 Brokenwood Four Winds Vineyard Riesling, which is made with grapes sourced from Canberra District’s Four Winds Vineyard.

In addition to running the Plastics Revolution podcast, former RSPCA ACT CEO Tammy Ven Dange has started a new enterprise, The Refoundry, which has created a pet barrier made from Australian recycled plastics. Photo: Kerrie Brewer.

Recycling plastic for a purpose Dismayed by the amount of plastic present in almost every body of water she paddled overseas and by high numbers of stray pets, former RSPCA ACT CEO Tammy Ven Dange has come up with a two-fold

20

solution in Stray No More. The patent-pending product is an expandable, fully-retractable, temporary barrier for pets, designed to help owners keep their pets from escaping their

home or yard, and will be manufactured in Australia using approximately 95% Australian recycled plastics. Ms Ven Dange, who founded The Refoundry of which Stray No More is one of their product lines, said the product is designed to “create a demand for what would otherwise be rubbish into a resource”. “Ultimately, I realised I knew of a problem that needed to be solved that could use plastic,” she said. “There are very few pet containment options on the market to prevent pets from escaping homes or yards.” While Ms Ven Dange said they have other products they would like to introduce in the future, Stray No More is the first product line to launch. During her time at the RSPCA ACT, she noticed a large proportion of animals at the shelter were stray animals. “For the ones that were

claimed, it was always one of those things – digging under the fence, climbing over the fence, or out the gate or door.” Stray No More “looks like a fancy baby gate” and Ms Ven Dange said they would like to “try get it certified for children in the future”. For now, the immediate challenge is to get it to market. A 30-day Indiegogo Campaign was launched on Tuesday 15 October with the aim to raise $250,000 by pre-selling about 1,000 units; this will pay for the steel moulds and the first order of products. “I wanted to solve problems that weren’t being solved, which means you are taking a risk,” Ms Ven Dange said. “Because it’s not a known product, people also have to take a risk to buy it.” For more information, visit refoundry.com.au or to support the project, go to igg.me/at/straynomore - Allison Turnbull

As the renewable industry continues to grow, 2019 ACT VET Teacher/ Trainer of the Year Ken Wilson said there are plenty of employment opportunities – and he is here to help students find them. The Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) delivers courses accredited by the Global Wind Organisation (GWO). Ken provides students with a practical understanding of the risks they will face working in the Wind Energy Industry, ensuring they adhere to global safety standards and technical practices. Due to the uptake of new technology, Ken said there is growing interest in the course with a 50% increase on numbers at the start of this year compared to 2018. “It is reasonable to expect this will continue as renewables become a lot more standard delivery of power,” he said, while adding that renewables have a broad scope of opportunity for people with experience across all levels and interests – engineers, tradespeople, IT and cyber, health and sciences, construction. Ken missed the ACT Training Awards ceremony as he was in the UK upgrading his GWO

qualification and undertaking the GWO Sea Survival training certification through which he can deliver training on safety procedures for crews working on offshore wind turbines. He said it is an important part of his job to stay on top of changes in technology and new safety requirements to be able to relay that information to his students. “For me, the most challenging aspect of the GWO course is to make sure my students leave CIT with their thinking caps on so they can safely, calmly and quickly react to an emergency if it ever occurs,” Ken said. According to Ken, the recognition from the ACT Training Awards was “humbling”. “But I’m mindful in a lot of things I do, I work with an extremely talented team of professionals that are committed as well, and that makes my job easier. “I love teaching and making people aware of the opportunities that come from education.” Ken is a finalist in the Australian Training Awards, which will take place in Brisbane on 21 November. - Allison Turnbull

Peta Eldridge is a finalist in Origin’s littleBIGidea competition for Turtle Mate, a product to help entertain and comfort children in hospital. Photo: Kerrie Brewer.

Young inventor’s innovative idea An innovative idea designed to help entertain and comfort children in hospital has seen nineyear-old Peta Eldridge recognised as one of Australia’s brightest young inventors.

The Year 4 student from St Francis of Assisi Primary School in Calwell is a finalist in Origin’s littleBIGidea competition for her award-winning idea, Turtle Mate. It was inspired by Peta’s sister who

has spent time in hospital this year. Made from soft, squeezable material, it features a control panel for hospital room technology and incorporates music and book-reading capabilities, as well as calls to family. “She (my sister) thought it was pretty cool and that she would use it while in hospital,” Peta said, although it can also be used at school, home, respite care, “anywhere kids can feel stressed or scared”. In coming up with the idea, Peta said the turtle concept came first – “turtles are awesome” – but she also wanted to make sure it could be accessible to everybody, part of which was including buttons with braille. “I like inventing stuff,” Peta said. “I’m not very good at the electronics but I like thinking about ideas.” And innovative thinking certainly runs in the family, with Peta’s sister a 2017 littleBIGidea alumna. “She won this competition and she made a robotic dog so we just say we

have an animal theme,” she smiled. According to littleBIGidea judge and 2018 NSW Young Australian of the Year, Macinley Butson, many of this year’s entries demonstrated “empathy for the community and care for our environment”. “Ideas focussed on healthcare, improving the lives of people with illness or disability, and technology advancements,” Macinley said. Peta is one of Australia’s top 12 finalists to receive a one-on-one mentoring session to build her idea further in the hope of winning one of three trips to NASA in the USA. Other finalist ideas in the Years 3-4 category include a No-Pain Band Aid, Hero Helmet, and Whiteboard Glasses. Three national winners (one from each category: Years 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8) will be announced in mid-November. For further information, visit littleBIGidea.com.au - Allison Turnbull

Entries are now open for this year’s Great Canberra Cook Off, where novice cooks across the ACT are invited to share their recipes using high-quality, healthier food options. The ACT Government’s Healthier Choices Canberra initative is running the cook off in a bid to get Canberrans cooking healthier meals, and there are three age categories so the whole family can get involved: ‘Little Chef’ for those aged eight to 12, ‘Teen Chef’ for 13-18 year olds and the ‘Stripped Back Chef’, open to everyone over 18. “Combining the great quality of food and the flavours into a unique Canberra recipe is what this competition is all about,” says the Healthy Eating Hub’s Kate Freeman. She says Canberrans are lucky to be surrounded by fresh, healthy produce that contributes greatly to our better standard of living, and the competition looks to showcase these ingredients. “We’re keen to find and showcase a winner from each category who can put their healthier signature dish ‘out there’ for the community to enjoy and to contribute to our population health strategy. “For the ‘Stripped Back Chef’ competition geared for the domestic cook, what we’ll be looking for in particular, is that healthier food option for school and sport canteens.”

Four finalists will be selected in the Stripped Back Chef category, where recipes are required to be suitable for ‘stripped back’ equipment such as those in school and sporting canteens. The finalists will Cook Off at EPIC Farmers Market on Saturday 30 November. Four finalists will be selected for both the Little Chef and Teen Chef categories as well, before the final Cook Off event on Tuesday 3 December. Little Chef finalists will also have the opportunity to work with a local celebrity for their final Cook Off. Aside from bragging rights, winners of each category will be eligible for prizes including a party for 10 at the National Zoo and Aquarium or the Bank indoor skate park, an escape room experience and a red Family Q barbecue. “All finalists’ recipes will be featured in The Great Canberra Cook e-recipe book,” Ms Freeman says. All entrants need to do is submit their ‘healthier recipe’ as well as a 60 second video about themselves and why they should be crowned the winner of the Great Canberra Cook Off. So, what are you waiting for? Entries for The Great Canberra Cook Off close on Friday 8 November. For more information or to enter, visit health.act.gov.au/cookoff

Since being founded in 1944, Alliance Française de Canberra has grown along with Canberra. Their Turner building, the Maison de France, opened in October 1973 with Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in attendance. File image.

Vive Alliance Française de Canberra One of Canberra’s longest standing multicultural institutions, Alliance Française de Canberra, is turning 75. After officially establishing in July 1944, founded by George Vincent, the not-for-profit association has been a part of the city’s cultural fabric since Canberra’s earlier years. Having grown and evolved with the city since then, Alliance Française (AF) de Canberra has gone from first teaching French

classes to the public at Civic’s Griffin Centre in the 1960s, to opening their Turner building, the Maison de France, in October 1973 with Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, and hosting their famed Bastille Day Balls at Albert Hall in the 1990s. Today, AF de Canberra has around 1,000 members and 650 students. Community Engagement and Partnerships Manager, Nancy Waites, tells Canberra Weekly that AF de Canberra is a proud

local organisation. “There’s a real misconception that the Alliance Française is a French organisation, it’s not. “It’s a network where the parent body is French, and housed in Paris, but all of their locations around the world have been locally created associations, and that’s how we started,” she says. To prepare for the 75th anniversary celebrations, Ms Waites has gone back through their records to consolidate AF de Canberra’s storied past, a project she’s found greatly rewarding. “It’s been fascinating because you realise the history of Canberra growing as a city is reflected in our organisation. “You can see the growth of the numbers of people in the organisation as Canberra grows along, then there’s all these really well known buildings popping up along the way, YWCA, ANU’s Haydon Allen Tank and then the

Griffin Centre.” Looking ahead, Waites says the organisation will continue to modernise as they look to expand their online offering and renovate their Turner premises, while also taking note of the past and hopefully engaging a historian to chronicle AF de Canberra’s backstory. Anniversary festivities kick off with a VIP invitation only reception on Friday 25 October at the French Ambassador’s residence. Public events include a Formed in the Forties French Party at their Turner premises on Saturday 26 October from 6.45pm, featuring a classic French menu, live jazz and swing dancers with around 90 people expected. On Sunday 27 October, there will be a family fun French film party at Palace Electric Cinemas, with a birthday cake and a clown to entertain the children.

Kingswim advertising moment

Kingswim: All your swimming questions answered On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October, the Kingswim Canberra team will be at the Oh Baby! Canberra Baby & Beyond Expo at Thoroughbred Park to answer parents’ burning questions on swimming. Kingswim’s three centre managers Simon Kroon (Deakin), Michael Gillard (Macgregor) and David Darnell (Majura Park), have a whopping three decades of experience between them and will be on hand to answer everything parents need to know about lessons and water safety. How do you get kids excited to learn to swim? MG: A good teacher will make sure their swimmers have fun, but parents can also drive this with their attitude towards swimming lessons. Encouraging their little ones and showing them lessons are fun helps build their confidence and enjoyment of lessons. DD: Lessons are incredibly fun but unless a parent is fully involved,

the fun stops when the lesson does! Mum and Dad being just as (or more) excited for lessons makes a huge difference to kids. SK: Taking an interest in what kids are learning and providing positive reinforcement is very important for their morale. Acknowledge and encourage them for their hard work and remind them it’s all about practice. What about baby’s first swim? SK: The more you expose babies to water the more confident they will be. Heaps of showers, baths, water over the face, splashing, toys and fun, fun, fun. The more fun, play-based water activity they do will set them up for early water confidence. MG: Stay confident, while it might be nerve wracking for you, often your little one is more confident than you are! If you stay confident, bub will too. DD: Parents are naturally scared of introducing their baby to the water but have absolutely no need to be. Babies are little survival machines! This is

The Kingswim Canberra team will be at the Oh Baby! Canberra Baby & Beyond Expo on 26 and 27 October to answer parents’ questions on swimming lessons and water safety.

why starting early is so beneficial, take every opportunity to get bub into the water and you will be amazed at what they learn. Why is it important for Canberra kids to learn to swim? SK: We have a long cold winter, but when summer arrives and the mercury soars, we hit the coast, rivers, lakes and pools. These environments can be unpredictable and, if you’re not a strong swimmer, dangerous. MG: Accidental drowning is such a big problem in Australia; with our vast access to waterways it’s crucial everyone in Australia knows how to swim. While Canberra may not have a beach, we sure love going to the coast, add to that our public and backyard pools, and it’s clear learning to swim

is just as important in Canberra as everywhere else. DD: Canberra has some good calm swimming spots, but as soon as it heats up we all evacuate to the coast! The ocean is a whole different environment and without proper swimming and water safety knowledge, can be quite dangerous. There is an unhelpful Australian stereotype that we all inherently know how to swim, which is certainly not the case. I’m passionate about ensuring everyone who comes through our doors is taught correct water safety. Be sure to visit the team at the Oh Baby! Canberra Baby & Beyond Expo for personalised information and support to get your little one started or visit kingswim.com.au

Stuffed Halloween capsicums

Makes approx. 20 ghosts (depending on the size of your cookie cutter) 250g butter, softened 1/3 cup caster sugar 1/4 cup rice flour, sifted 2 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted To decorate Icing sugar Small quantity icing of choice M&Ms Minis

Preheat oven to 150°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cream the butter and sugar in an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add flours and when the mixture becomes very stiff, use your hands (or a fork) to combine. Turn out onto a lightly floured board or bench and knead until smooth. Using a rolling pin, roll out the mixture to a thickness of about 1cm. Using a ghost-shaped cookie cutter (we got ours in a Pacman set from eBay), cut out shapes and place onto the baking tray. Bake for around 20 minutes. Once your ghosts have completely cooled, dust them all over with icing sugar. Place a small amount of icing (we used royal icing in black) on the back of the M&Ms, and stick them down for the eyes.

To add another dimension to your spooky shortbreads, grab some fondant icing in your desired colour, roll out and cut with the same cookie cutter you used for your biscuits. Lay it out on top of your biscuits and decorate with the icing sugar and M&M eyes.

This is an edited extract from Chyka Celebrate by Chyka Keebaugh, published by Hardie Grant Books, $40 and is available where all good books are sold. Photographer: © Commission Studio. Serves: 6 6 yellow capsicums 4 Tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling 225g lean minced beef 1 onion, finely diced 2 garlic cloves, chopped 1 medium zucchini, finely diced 4 Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely diced Chilli flakes, to taste 185g (1 cup) cooked mixed long-grain and wild rice 185g (1 1/2 cups) grated cheese

42

Cut the tops off the capsicums and set aside (do not discard). Remove all the seeds and membranes from inside the capsicums, then rinse and pat dry with paper towel. Use a small paring knife to carve jack-o-lantern faces into each capsicum. If the capsicums don’t stand upright, use the knife to slice a small amount off the bottom to flatten the surface. Heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the beef, season with salt and pepper and fry for 8-10 minutes, breaking up the lumps with the back of a spoon, until the meat is cooked through and just beginning to brown. Transfer the meat to a plate lined with paper towel to absorb any excess fat.

CW is celebrating all things Halloween this week, and food writer Libby Kimber has rounded up some recipes that are suitably spooky – and super cute!

Spooky shortbread

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Wipe out the frying pan and add the remaining olive oil. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until beginning to soften. Add the garlic and zucchini and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes and season with salt and a pinch or two of chilli flakes. Continue cooking until everything is heated through, then stir in the beef and the cooked rice. Taste and adjust the seasoning, then stir in 125g (1 cup) of the cheese. Fill the capsicums with the rice and beef mixture and top each with a sprinkle of the remaining cheese. Lastly, close with the reserved capsicum tops. Transfer to a baking dish and pour a small amount of water into the bottom of the dish. Drizzle the capsicums with olive oil. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes until the peppers are starting to soften and the cheese is melted and lightly browned.


Pumpkin board Image and text from Beautiful Boards by Maegan Brown, photography by Jerrelle Guy, Rock Point Gift & Stationery, $24.99. 1 bag (336g) baby carrots

Serves: 10+

2 orange capsicums, cut into strips 3 triangle-shaped cookie cutters, for the eyes and nose

2 cups (32g) orange cheddar popcorn

2 large bunches black Concord grapes

2 cups (60g) orange yogurt-covered pretzels

1 1/2 cups (225g) blackberries

1 cup (30g) seeded sweet potato crackers

1/4 medium cucumber, thinly sliced

1 cup (130g) dried apricots

30 orange cheddar cheese cracker cuts

3 clementines, peeled and segments separated

1 1/2 cups (150g) cheese crackers

Ranch dressing and hummus, on the side, for dipping

2 cups (120g) sweet potato crisps

1 1/2 cups mini cheese balls

Use a 51cm round board. Place the cookie cutters on the board for the pumpkin’s eyes and nose. Shape the black grapes into a grin. Fill the cookie cutters with blackberries. Place the cucumber slices at the top of the board for the pumpkin’s stem. Fan the cheese slices down the middle of the board. Line the cheese crackers, sweet potato crisps, carrots, capsicum slices, popcorn, cheese balls, pretzels, sweet potato crackers, apricots and clementine segments out on both sides of the cheese slices and around the black foods until the board is completely covered. Tightly pack the orange foods at the edges of the board, so they stay in place if you transfer the board to another location to serve. Carefully, lift the cookie cutters from the board, shaping the blackberries back into triangle shapes, if necessary. You can always add more black and orange foods to fill in any gaps. Serve bowls of ranch dressing and hummus on the side for dipping.

As a long-term Canberra resident for over 30 years, I was genuinely surprised to explore the Hills of Hall Wine Trail on a recent media famil – and mortified it was my first time venturing south off the Barton Highway into this glorious wine region that skirts the Murrumbidgee River. Our merry band of media and friends were chauffeured by the affable Aaron of Valley Limousines, official transport of the Hills of Hall Wine Trail (email info@valleylimo.com.au). The Hills of Hall comprises five wine destinations: the Capital Wines cellar door in Hall, and four vineyards in nearby Wallaroo – Brindabella Hills, Pankhurst Wines, Surveyors Hill and Wallaroo Wines. The upcoming Hills of Hall Wine Festival, on the weekend of 2-3 November, is an ideal opportunity to check out this often overlooked wine region that is not only literally on Canberra’s doorstep, it’s also truly special.

Capital Wines

Our day trip began at Capital Wines Cellar Door in Hall, where winemaker Andrew McEwin shared his winemaking philosophy and gourmet tastings of matched wine and food. His multiple award-winning The Whip Riesling was paired with a creamy gorgonzola drizzled with local honey and crackers (or hummus, dried apricots and smoked 46

almonds); followed by the Kyeema Shiraz Viognier matched with beef cheeks (or white beans and kale) on bruschetta. The full epicurean tasting experience comprises four wines expertly matched to four seasonal food tastes for $40 per person; optional dessert course $10. Bookings recommended. Alternatively, visit the cellar door for wine tastings, share a cheese plate and browse artworks on display in the Kyeema Gallery. 13 Gladstone Street, Hall T: 6230 2022 W: capitalwines.com.au

Surveyors Hill

Boarding the bus, we crossed south over the Barton Highway and within minutes arrived at Surveyor’s Hill Vineyards, home to some of the Canberra District’s older vines which were first planted in the mid-1980s. The inviting cellar door and café offers panoramic views of Surveyors Hill to the north. On the menu for us was a generous selection of starters, all prepared on site: roast pumpkin hummus, butter bean and rosemary dip, pickled beetroot and carrot salad, pork and veal terrine, braised corned beef, smoked duck breast and freshly baked bread. Our delicious spread was paired with tastings of Viognier Chardonnay Roussane 2016, Cabernet Franc Rosé 2017


and Tinto 2018. Diners can choose from platters, entrees, mains and dessert. Wine tastings are free; wines can be purchased by the glass and bottle. 215 Brooklands Road, Wallaroo T: 6230 2046 W: surveyorshill.com.au

Wallaroo Wines

Since buying the property in the mid-1990s, ABC foreign correspondent Philip Williams and former journalist and political staffer Carolyn Jack have created an elegant country house retreat and transformed the 300-acre sheep paddock into productive vineyards. Surrounded by sprawling English style country gardens, it’s easy to see why the gorgeous Georgianstyle homestead is popular for weddings, corporate functions and family getaways and as an Airbnb destination. We were hosted in the elegant dining room, devouring a delectable lunch prepared by celebrated chef and caterer of choice, Stuart Trower, paired with the 2017 Shiraz made by renowned Canberra district winemaker, Nick O’Leary. Grasp the opportunity to visit Wallaroo Wines for their Doggy Day Out on Saturday 26 October 10am-5pm, and again during the Hills of Hall festival on 2-3 November. 196 Brooklands Road, Wallaroo T: 6230 2831 W: wallaroowines.com.au

Pankhurst Wines

Proudly related to famed British suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, Pankhurst Wines was established by Allan and Christine Pankhurst in 1986 with the first planting of Pinot Noir vines still continuing to produce award-winning wines. Our gracious hostess, Christine, served up tasty cheese platters with condiments, including their divine house-made pinot chutney and tastings of their 2017

Marsanne with stonefruit (apricot) characters, the crisp and light 2018 Arneis with pear flavours and a touch of oak, 2016 Dorothy May Cabernet Sauvignon and the refreshing 2016 Adela Sparkling Merlot – perfect for celebrations. The Pankhurst cellar door features a picturesque picnic area with stunning mountain views. ‘Old Woodgrove’, Woodgrove Close, Wallaroo T: 6230 2592 W: pankhurstwines.com.au

Brindabella Hills Winery

Sure, we’ve heard of pairing wine with food – but what about with fudge? Turns out it’s a match made in heaven as we discovered at Brindabella Hills Winery with able assistance from Fudgemental, passionate creator of delectable vegan fudge varieties. With its green apple crispness, the 2018 Riesling was matched with ginger and orange fudge; the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc with macadamia and pear Belgian couverture fudge; 2018 Sweetheart late harvest trio (Riesling, Semillon, Viognier) with mango tango; 2017 Brio Sangiovese with blackberry pomegranate American chocolate fudge; and the 2017 Shiraz with both sour cherry and coconut, and double shot espresso and pear. We also tasted the 2019 Ava Rosé – a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, and the 2018 Shiraz Nouveau, before sitting down to a delectable dessert of perfect panna cotta with a proper wobble to it. Light and spacious, the newly renovated café offers foods perfectly matched to Brindabella Hills’ wines. Step onto the back deck for breathtaking river views. 156 Woodgrove Close, Wallaroo T: 6188 5405 W: brindabellahills.com.au To find out more, find Hills of Hall on Facebook. - Julie Samaras

Mim Rizvi says The Beanies have established themselves by writing their own music, performing live and creating a podcast.

The Beanies have been nominated for an ARIA award for Best Children's Album for their 2018 work, Imagination Station, pitting them against the likes of The Wiggles. Photos supplied.

Beanies bag ARIA nod Miriam ‘Mim’ Rizvi’s career as a musical theatre performer and entertainer has been anything but conventional. Born and raised in Canberra, Rizvi studied her craft in Sydney, and from there pursued the traditional route of getting an agent and taking as many auditions as possible. “I went to a lot of auditions, and kept getting very close for children band re-castings, like Hi-5,” she told Canberra Weekly. When Rizvi would get the news she’d missed out, she’d call her hometown friend, and now fellow Beanie, Laura Dawson, feeling bummed out. “Eventually she said ‘why don’t we start our own and the success

48

will be ours and not dependent on auditions’ … It’s been a little match made in heaven, it’s been going really well ever since.” It was from there, about four years ago, that the critically acclaimed and now ARIA award nominated Beanies were founded. And they’ve been writing music ever since. Just earlier this month they found out they’d been nominated for the ARIA award for Best Children’s Album for their 2018 work, Imagination Station, pitting them against the likes of the almighty skivvies, The Wiggles. “It was a weird process because we didn’t think we’d get nominated at all,” Rizvi said. “I was at my normal job,

suddenly got a tweet and my phone lit up with texts from Laura. I called her and she started screaming; she said everyone at the announcement was staring at her.” Creating songs that are silly, fun, imaginative and educational, Rizvi says their ideas come from all over the place. “Some come from our own inspiration; Sneaky Robber came from a childhood story in my house where my cousin got in trouble for melting a candle and getting wax everywhere … he blamed the sneaky robber. “We’re now big enough that we get requests from parents, which is a bit exciting. Brush Your Teeth came from a mum who wrote to us because she was having a hard time getting her daughter to brush her teeth.” Rizvi, Dawson, their other bandmate Michael Yore and their composer, fellow Canberran James Court, have since expanded from writing music and performing live to producing a podcast that’s allowed them to reach an even

broader audience. Their educational podcast, The Beanies Imagination Station, was created to be a parent’s “guilt-free babysitter”. “We wanted to create entertainment that would give parents a break but also wouldn’t spoon-feed children readymade entertainment, so they could use their imaginations but also give parents a bit of a break,” Rizvi says. “When you own something yourself, you can really see an end goal and a mission; our goal is to teach children to be as creative as possible. “In the podcast, we’ll tell kids to close your eyes, imagine this, what does it smell like, look like and imagine every facet of it.” As for what the future holds, Rizvi says between their weekly podcast, creating new music, and a chock-ablock performing schedule, they have a lot on their plate. “We can’t sit still, we’re all too full of beans. “We’re going to have Beanie camp this year; we’re going on a writing camp together, locking ourselves in a room and just having a creative week together, so we’re really excited for that.” Having recently ticked off a “bucket list gig” by performing at Floriade, Rizvi says they’re always excited to come home and perform in Canberra, and look forward to bringing their musical, Extraordinary Day, to The Q in early 2020. - Denholm Samaras

Nicknamed Yuli by his father, Carlos fled any kind of discipline or education from a young age.

Yuli ends up being captivated by the world of dance, and breaking taboos, becomes the first black artist to dance Romeo in the Royal Ballet in London.

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Abigail Breslin and Emma Stone co-star in Zombieland: Double Tap.

Now showing Zombieland: Double Tap (MA15+) Ten years after the events of Zombieland, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) are all living like a family in the White House. Soon, however, sisters Wichita and Little Rock get itchy feet and leave the pack to fend for themselves! Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later brought zombies back from the cinematic graveyard in 2002, then 2004’s Dawn of the Dead kicked the critters into high gear. The Walking Dead comic series debuted in 2003, hitting TV screens in 2010. During the thick of the craze, Zombieland arrived in 2009. Where other zombie survivalist fare dealt with nihilistic themes in an uber dark tone, Zombieland had a lighter take on the zombie apocalypse, choosing to enjoy the little things

Opens This Week 4 shows

(Rule #32) when one can. In Zombieland, the core cast of kids were in their early years, with Harrelson and a bizzare cameo from Bill Murray bringing some star power. With each actor’s character named after their home state, they were believable and authentic within their world. Ten years on, the leads are now all stars in their own right, inevitably taking away from this authenticity. Double Tap is the quintessential sequel: bigger budget, bigger production values and a slight re-tread. It is a pity that it chooses to make a meta-social commentary on the current PC culture instead of completely encompassing us in their zombieland. Verdict: Like the original, a completely unexpected, but welcome romp. 4 stars. - Luke McWilliams

With easy access off Yass Valley Way, Cooma Cottage is a heritagelisted property owned by the National Trust of Australia (NSW) that is well worth exploring. Our enthusiastic volunteer guides, Corrine and Wayde, generously shared their wealth of knowledge and palpable passion for the property during our tour. Built by the O’Brien family from 1830 to 1837, it was most famously home to Australian explorer Hamilton Hume, who lived on the riverfront property from 1840 until his death in 1873 and extended the cottage into a Palladian style

bungalow. It was later used as a consumption hospital. We enjoyed this fascinating insight into the way European settlers lived in the region, the sprawling grounds, rare Picconia tree and river views. The property will open for groups by appointment.

Harry Bosch is back in another well-crafted crime novel by crime maestro, Michael Connelly. When Bosch attends the funeral of his former mentor, John Jack Thompson, he is given an old police murder file by Thompson’s widow. The murder book relates to the unsolved killing 20 years before of a young man in a notorious drug alley. Determined to find out why Thompson had held onto the murder book, Bosch teams up with LA detective Renée Ballard to track down what really happened back in that alley. A clever and engaging crime novel that builds to a surprising ending. Highly recommended.

This enjoyable debut by Melbourne author, Jane Cockram, brings a modern age sensibility to the traditional gothic novel. Failed social media influencer Miranda has long lived in the shadow of her mother, Tessa Summer, the bestselling author of The House of Brides. Miranda was captivated by her deceased mother’s account of the brides of the notorious Summer family and their lavish residence at Barnsley House in England. Long estranged from her mother’s family back in England, Miranda keenly accepts an invitation to visit Barnsley House in disguise as a nanny, but she soon finds herself caught up in family mysteries and danger.

When Noah Carruso and Alice Pryce meet in Thailand, they are both trying to flee from crises in their lives back in Australia. For Noah it is the looming coronial inquest into the disappearance of his brother’s girlfriend a decade ago. Noah knows more about it than he lets on and is dreading his return to Australia.

Understanding inflammation and its role in depression A recent Australian study published in the peer reviewed PLOS One Journal showed that changing your diet from one high in processed foods and sugar to a more Mediterranean style diet was able to improve moderate to severe depression symptoms in young adults (17 to 35 years old) in as little as three weeks. The lead author, Dr Heather Francis, explained that there is a link between chronic inflammation and depression, which the study sought to explore. Her researchers found a diet higher in vegetables, fruit, wholegrains, quality protein and olive oil was one effective way to reduce inflammation and thereby improve depression. The results highlight the potential for interventions other than antidepressant medication and talking therapies that can impact depression

have observed those experiencing psychological stress and anxiety showed significantly greater increases in inflammatory interferons as well as lowering the body’s built in, anti-inflammatory compounds. Stress reduction is no longer a nice thing to have but a key platform in recovery from depression. Exercise: Regular exercise downregulates systemic inflammation and may explain why it is both an effective treatment strategy for depression and also protects against the development of new episodes of depression. Gut Permeability: Leaky gut allows pathogens into the bloodstream that then trigger an inflammatory response which in turn worsens the gut permeability. Repairing the integrity of the gut is therefore a priority in reducing systemic inflammation. Sleep: Research has demonstrated that acute sleep deprivation results in impairments in immune functioning

by tackling chronic inflammation. One of the first observed links between inflammation and depression was made in 2007 when doctors noticed that hepatitis C patients treated with the anti-viral drug interferon, which causes the release of pro inflammatory cytokines, also triggered low appetite, disturbed sleep, loss of pleasure, cognitive impairment and suicidal thoughts. Our understanding of the links between depression and inflammation is still a developing story, however, the emergence of this connection is paving the way for new methods to prevent, as well as to address, depression. As well as diet, the interventions that are showing promise include: Stress reduction: Researchers

and increases pro-inflammatory cytokines. So therapies that focus on restoring better sleep may positively impact depression. Vitamin D: We know vitamin D plays a big role in the functioning of the immune system and is important for quality sleep; now there is a growing epidemiological evidencebase linking depressive symptoms to low levels of vitamin D. With time, it’s likely our approach to treating depression will look a lot more holistic than it has up until now and that can only be a good thing.

Don’t be scary: Halloween can be a tricky celebration as sometimes the imagery can be scary, especially for young children. Opt for bright colours and simple designs that spark kids’ imaginations without being frightening.

Halloween bat boxes Project and image courtesy of Spotlight. Level: Easy What you’ll need Cardstock in black Scissors Pencil Hot glue gun and glue Glue dots Crochet hook Metal ruler Joggle eyes Instructions Step 1: Trace the template (available online at spotlightstores.com/ projects/halloween-projects) for both box and wings onto black card. Cut out. Step 2: Using a crochet hook, score the dotted lines on the box. Use a

metal ruler to score the straight lines. Gently bend each fold to prepare for box construction. Step 3: Apply glue to length of box on opposite side to flap. Fold box in half and fold flap to sit under glued edge and press together. Allow glue to dry. Step 4: On box back, apply a short length of glue on either side of middle and an equal length in centre. Attach wings in this position. Step 5: On front, stick joggle eyes in position. Firstly peel off paper backing then apply a glue dot to back of each eye. Typically the eyes would stick on fine on their own but as our box is flexible they need a little extra help this time. Step 6: Once glue is dry, fold in bottom box flaps, one over the other. Fill your bat with treats. Fold in top flaps to close.

A new world of native plant use I recently attended Canberra’s very first Native Plant Use Forum, which was put together by ACT Natural Resource Management (ACT NRM) and hosted by Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate. ACT NRM has a focus on biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and Aboriginal NRM. The forum was held over two days and included speakers, panel discussions and a field trip at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. It opened my eyes to a whole new world and appreciation of our landscape, its history and its natural resources. The following are some of the interesting facts learnt at the forum: Weaving with Kalkadoon/Pitta Pitta woman, Ronnie Jordan, of Culture on the Move • Traditionally, weaving can be

64

carried out by both sexes, but it is dependent on what tribe they are from and their beliefs. • Weaving is a relaxing pastime, which also brings out emotions. It can be done subconsciously, allowing people to multitask. • Dianella and Lomandra (preferably fine leaf forms), Typha (Cumbungi or Bullrush) and Juncus are grasses commonly used for weaving. Collect only a few leaves from each plant, for their conservation. Foliage cannot be collected from protected parks and nature reserves. • Once picked, leaves are dried for several weeks before being soaked and used when damp. Flints, artefacts and health with Wiradjuri man, Shane Herrington, Aboriginal Discovery Ranger, NSW Parks and Wildlife

• Boomerangs come in different shapes for different uses. • Tools are often multiuse, e.g. digging sticks have a pointy end for breaking up hard ground and a shovelled end for digging. • The Kurrajong tree (Brachychiton) has many traditional uses including using seeds as a coffee substitute or ground to make flour, water can be harvested from the roots, and fibre is made and harvested from under the bark for weaving dilly bags and nets.

Ginninderry’s ‘display village experience’ The Ginninderry development in West Belconnen will open a new display village to the public on Saturday 26 October – ‘GX – The Ginninderry Experience’. The village promises to “redefine the display village experience” for visitors, showcasing sustainability initiatives, a local arts trail, turf and environmental control displays, the ‘Mini-G’ tiny house, an integrated mobile app and 16 “cuttingedge” display homes. Ginninderry Project Director, Steve Harding, says the team challenged themselves to deliver a “display village with a difference – a place that inspires visitors and increases their understanding about what’s possible when it comes to sustainability, modern design and

smart planning.” Ginninderry’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Niva Pryor, says the GX App, which is the first of its kind for a display village in Australia, allows visitors to take self-guided tours of the houses, sustainability features and art trails. “The GX App gives visitors the ability to scan markers on favourite homes, products, features and art to unlock additional information and build their own favourites list,” she says. GX will be open to the public on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October 10am-4pm, with a community event featuring special appearances including Scott Cam from The Block and Paul West from River Cottage Australia and Gardening Australia.

Canberra attractive to investors over Brisbane Canberra is still an attractive option for property investors, according to Peter Blackshaw Project Marketing’s Sam Dodimead. Referencing an article in the Australian Financial Review in which Select Residential Property’s head of research, Jeremy Sheppard, said Brisbane offers “the best potential for cash flow and capital growth”, Dodimead argues Canberra can compete with the Queensland capital on both of these points. He references the ACT’s low vacancy and unemployment rates, as well as lower stamp duty and higher household incomes. “The Real Estate Institute of Australia determined as of the June 2019 quarter, the

proportion of income required to meet home loan repayments in Queensland had risen to 28.2%, and tenants spend 21.9% of household income to meet the median rent,” Dodimead says. “In contrast, to meet home loan repayments in Canberra, 20.6% of household income is required and tenants spend only 18.9% of household income to meet the median rent. “Last year, population growth [in Canberra] was 1.7% and has consistently grown for eight consecutive years. Population growth has not led to increased unemployment.” He says Canberra’s average gross rental yield for all units is 5.5% and 4% for houses, 20 basis points above Brisbane.

Ginninderry’s display village ‘GX’ will feature a range of sustainability initiatives, an arts trail, integrated app and display homes, including the Mini-G tiny house (pictured). Photo supplied.

Heritage street signs to be restored The Inner South Community Council have been awarded a grant of $17,993 to restore signs in the heritage listed Forrest Housing Precinct, Blandfordia 4 and Blandfordia 5. The funds will be used to restore 10 1920s street signs in the area. Twenty-one projects have been awarded grant funding through the ACT Government’s Heritage Grants Program, with a total of $355,000 awarded to projects across a range of areas.

Style meets tranquillity Farrer 124 Hawkesbury Crescent Family homes like this rarely come on the market. Originally built in 1971, not an expense was spared when this home was renovated in 2006; meaning buyers are presented with a modern lifestyle in an established neighbourhood on a generous 1,105sqm block. Peter Blackshaw Woden, Weston Creek & Molonglo sales consultant, Anthony Weston, says that both inside and outside, the architecture and design behind this property come to the fore. “With privacy created by mature hedges, use of feature windows, light-filled spaces, magnificent gardens and the versatility of the home,” he says. Clever use of windows throughout the home take full advantage of the home’s beautiful aspect, bathing the

living spaces in natural light. Fantastic feature floor-to-ceiling windows, including in all four corners, succeed in bringing the gardens inside. “This is a popular Pettit & Sevitt design based on principles of open plan and extensive use of timber and either painted or exposed brick,” Weston says. The recent renovation on the property mean convenience is afforded by way of the many modern inclusions such as: an updated laundry; a breathtaking kitchen featuring stone benches, gas cooktop plus electric ovens, integrated microwave and dishwasher; and generous storage throughout the home. The main bedroom has a balcony and beautiful outlook, plus a modern ensuite with shower, vanity

and toilet, while the other three generously sized bedrooms all come with built-in robes. Stepping outside, the outdoor entertaining areas set amongst the

magnificent gardens are ideal for sharing times with family and friends. The private backyard with established plantings also makes life easy with an automated sprinkler watering system throughout the garden and lawns. This home also boasts an enviable location on a premier street in Farrer, a stone’s throw from the Farrer Ridge Nature Reserve, shopping and schooling options. Weston says this beautiful family home is suited to a variety of buyers.

Thursday, 7MATE, 9pm, MA15+ (2017)

Based on Stephen King’s hugely popular 1986 novel, this supernatural horror movie took the box office by storm, raking in US$700 million. Directed by Argentine filmmaker Andrés Muschietti (Mama), It follows a group of children living in a small town who find themselves squaring off against an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back centuries.

Friday

pick of the week Paddington 2 Thursday, ABC ME, 6.30pm, PG (2017)

Paddington (pictured, voiced by Ben Whishaw) is happily settled with the Brown family, but is eager to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. Hugh Grant plays the devilish villain caught up in his own sense of self-importance, and with a surprising turn from Brendan Gleeson and the usual cast of characters, the film is a sheer delight from start to finish.

October 25

Toy Story Sunday, 9GO!, 6.55pm, G (1995)

John Lasseter’s landmark effort won the hearts of kids and parents easily. Based on the premise that toys have their own lives when their owners are away, top of the toy box tree is Sheriff Woody (pictured, voiced by Tom Hanks). However, his authority comes under threat from the newest toy on the block – Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) – who believes he really is an astronaut.

celebrity birthday

GUY SEBASTIAN -

26 October 1981

Guy may be feeling some trepidation about the possibility of a new beginning in his professional life. It might be tempting to gloss over any problems that this may cause within his personal relationships, but coasting through and pretending nothing is wrong will only make things worse in the long run. On a lighter note, Guy will be recognised and rewarded for his good deeds, perhaps in relation to community involvement and development, and could see new opportunities open up in this space.

in the stars ARIES 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER 22 JUNE – 22 JULY

LIBRA 24 SEPT – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 20 JAN

Venus opposed Uranus on 12 October and then a New Moon in the same area of your chart on 27 October will also oppose Uranus. Your finances are on a roller coaster ride and it’s time to do damage control. Mercury turning retrograde on 31 October gives you time to regroup.

With Mars having moved into your domestic sector on 4 October, family is a battlefield for most of the month. Do what you can to sidestep conflict with loved ones. A DIY project around the house can discharge any pent-up frustration someone in your household is feeling.

There’s a change happening in your

Your social life is likely to be a major source of joy and chaos. With Venus in your friendship sector until 1 November, you'll have more pleasurable moments with friends and groups. With Mars topping your chart until 19 November, it’s an ideal time to progress your career goals.

TAURUS 21 APR – 21 MAY

Watch your words, Leo. On the one hand, with Mars in your communication sector until 19 November, you’ll feel plenty of courage to speak up for yourself and get what you want by the power of persuasion. But mind that you don’t come across as intimidating.

Team projects and collaboration continue to be a major theme this month, but they will also be a source of frustration. Remember what you learned in kindergarten: how to play well with others. Likewise, there is nothing boring or stable about your love life.

GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE Sometimes, the only way to get to where you need to be is by causing a storm. Something major is about to change in your work life or in your health so that you can get on your best path. Also, things are about to heat up romantically.

LEO 23 JULY – 23 AUG

VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEPT Debts are being cleared this month and it’s going to feel amazing! This can be anything from a tax settlement to paying off a credit card. In other news, communication might be erratic and, if there you’re keeping any information to yourself, you might start to become even more secretive.

love life this month, Libra. It’s time to clear the air with your mate if things have been tense lately, or it's possible you'll decide it's time to walk away because you just can’t make it work. Financial matters are also a key theme.

SCORPIO 24 OCT – 22 NOV Due to its opposition to Uranus, a New Moon in your sign on 27 October changes your usual way of relating and you might behave more erratically. You’re ready for a new start and, if a stale relationship is holding you back, it could be time to move on.

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOV – 21 DEC There's a lot going on in your mind and you might need to take a break from everything so that you can sort out your feelings about several areas, including career and romance. The New Moon on 27 October lands in your 12th house of escape.

AQUARIUS 21 JAN – 19 FEB Your work life is filled with possibilities. You'll feel validated and certainly noticed by your boss or another important person connected to your career. Aim for the New Moon on 27 October to initiate any major change you've wanted concerning your career goals.

PISCES 20 FEB – 20 MAR With Mars in your 8th house of shared resources, there’s so much happening financially it might be stressful. You could face a significant expense – anything from finding out you owe more taxes to dealing with a growing credit card debt or other loan that is coming due.

My favourite things

COFFEE

I wake up insanely early every morning; I’m an early bird. I love just sitting in the morning when it’s very peaceful and just having a coffee. It’s a really important thing for us, socialising with other people, and also everyone has to have an addiction. I love my keep cup that I take with me everywhere.

TRAIL RUNNING

Photo Kerrie Brewer

I love trail running, and my backpack comes with me on all my long runs, filled with water and lollies. It’s helped me go on lots of different adventures: Victorian mountains, NSW, we went running in New Zealand over Christmas ...

BIKE

2019 ACT Scientist of the Year

Dr Sophie Lewis, senior lecturer at UNSW Canberra, was announced as the 2019 ACT Scientist of the Year for her work in climate change research, studying extreme weather and the impact of climate change on major weather events like bushfires and droughts. “So when I first found out, I was just shocked … And then I got quite excited about it because it comes with this prize money which means I’ll be able to spend a lot of time working with school kids in the ACT,” she says. “I love [my job]; there’s nothing that I can imagine I’d rather be doing. I’ve wanted to be a scientist since I was a really young child, so intellectually it’s really exciting and interesting. I get to study something that I think is so important to everyone’s lives – understanding how climate change will affect us and how we can be really well prepared for that.” When she’s not working, you’ll find Sophie spending time outdoors with her partner Cathy and their two-year-old daughter Morgan. - Libby Kimber 154

PLAYGROUND When my daughter was very little we converted a part of our backyard into a playground for her. We just love spending time out there, she’s really happy outside; it’s such a nice way to spend time with neighbours. It’s just such a lovely space that we can spend some time outside, and we feel so lucky that we’ve been able to have a place to call home in Canberra.

Dr Sophie Lewis

I love my bike. It is nothing special whatsoever… We’ve got the baby seat on the front which my daughter loves; it’s a really nice way to get around, you get to chat and talk to each other. We have fantastic bike paths in Canberra and it just makes the mornings such a pleasant start to the day. I ride to work most days.

MOUNT AINSLIE We spend a lot of time outside just going for strolls, walking the dog, meeting friends, and I think it just kind of sums up all that’s really lovely about living in Canberra – we have all these wonderful green spaces just on our doorsteps.
