re you travelling for work or for pleasure today? While most of you are probably on your way to a holiday or a break to see family, you may be surprised that a growing number of customers fly on our network for business. You will see commuters, tradespeople, professionals and executives, all looking for great value and a simple, fast experience through the airport. They check-in online and use our app to stay updated on their journey. They choose us because we offer good flight frequencies between important business hubs such as Sydney, Singapore, Auckland and Melbourne; check-

in is quick with our straight-togate mobile boarding pass; and our app updates you on the go. These savvy travellers are looking for value when they fly – but need some flexibility if work plans change at the last minute. So we’ve introduced FlexiBiz, a new product for business customers which provides just that, as well as some extras on board. From as little as $29, a FlexiBiz bundle includes same day flight moves, seat selection, an extra item of carry-on baggage, a credit voucher if you need to cancel your flight, and no fees for date, time and name changes. FlexiBiz is available on both our domestic and international flights. Customers travelling for business can now purchase a FlexiBiz fare bundle through our Business Hub on Jetstar.com. I’m really proud that we now offer a product that supports small and medium size businesses to grow and achieve their goals. We are always looking for ways to improve the service we offer our customers, and this is just another example. Happy travels,

Q&A with Barrie Kosky WORDS JUSTINE COSTIGAN

Why Saul? I studied Saul as part of my degree at the University of Melbourne. It’s sung often in Germany, and was performed by the Komische Oper before my time. I love the piece even more now than when I started.

Why does Saul resonate?

Thanks for choosing to fly with us today – it’s great to have you on board. We all know having a holiday to look forward to puts a spring in our step. In the past, families might have planned all year for one big trip, whether it was visiting relatives interstate, or going on an exciting overseas adventure. When Jetstar took to the sky things changed. With our everyday low fares, you can afford to get away more than once a year and explore further than ever before. You could be flying to any of our 80 unique destinations today. Our destination of the month is Perth, the jewel of Australia’s West Coast.

It may be opera, but not as you know it. Handel’s Saul gets a Barrie Kosky makeover, with stunning results. Acclaimed Australian theatre and opera director and Director of Berlin’s Komische Oper, Barrie Kosky brings his production of George Frideric Handel’s Saul from England’s Glyndebourne Festival to the Adelaide Festival next year. The story of the first King of Israel, Saul is a dramatic tale of politics, envy, family dysfunction, passion, madness and violence, staged with lavish costumes and detailed, opulent scenery. Barrie’s first opera production in Australia since 2001, Saul has garnered rave reviews, with critics describing the production as “utterly enthralling” and “ravishing”. We spoke to Barrie ahead of Saul’s 2017 Australian debut.

Saul cast members on stage at Glyndebourne.

Is the production set in biblical times? The production is set in the Baroque, but its not historically accurate. And I don’t think Handel’s top priority was biblical oratorio, he was more interested in human emotion.

What was the response to the premiere of the opera at Glyndebourne? It was phenomenal. It sold out every performance and the English audience – not renowned for over-the-top displays of emotion – were stomping their feet on the theatre’s wooden floor! The Adelaide Festival runs from 3-19 March, 2017. Saul will be performed at the Festival Theatre on 3,5,7 and 9 March. Full details of the 2017 festival program will be announced on 27 October. adelaidefestival.com.au PHOTO DEAN GOLJA, BILL COOPER, FELIX DROBEK-TRUESDALE, IKEA

Welcome

These biblical stories are ingrained in Western culture. Even if you’re not a believer, the stories are embedded. And Handel gives you wave after wave of emotion.

UNITY BOOKS

86 Federal Street thefed.co.nz This is my favourite restaurant – everything is so damned delicious! It’s kind of JewishAmerican cuisine, serving latkes and the like. The place is open all day, although it really caters to a late-night clientele. They serve drinks in 1950s jars, so it’s a bit trendy, though – unlike most hipster hangouts – the staff are very friendly. I remember being in New York at the Soho Grand or similar and hipster staff were all too cool, sneering at customers. Not here though.

19 High Street unitybooks.nz This is my favourite shop. You can get all the best and newest books here – everything from books to keep my teenage kids entertained, through to Philosophy for Dummies for me. I also love flicking through the beautiful, big architecture books. You can feel the knowledge and brilliance all around you and you kind of hope that some of it will go into you by osmosis. I always walk out with way more books than I can ever hope to read.

HOTEL DEBRETT

Viaduct Harbour Ave viaduct.co.nz My favourite view is down on the viaduct – it’s where the city meets the ocean. The other day I was waiting for one of my kids and walked across the viaduct. I turned around to walk back towards the city and there was an enormous yellow moon, which hit me in the eye … like a big pizza pie, and I fell in love with the city all over again.

While I’ve recently been doing the Whole30 diet, after months of being dairy and wheat-free, I’m now appreciating a cocktail or two! My favourite bar is the Art Deco-inspired, Cornerbar [at the Hotel DeBrett]. I’m very partial to their whisky sours.

2 Kitchener St fingers.co.nz Funnily enough, the place that inspires me the most is a jewellery store. It’s even more odd as I don’t really buy a lot of jewellery, or wear it, for that matter, but I love looking at it. I’m always struck by the fact that the creator of each piece has really put their heart, soul and time into these works of art. Everything is a tiny manifestation of someone’s creativity.

UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND Auckland 1010 auckland.ac.nz This place really means a lot to me. I love that desire for knowledge – it excites me so much.

Experience I HOW-TO

HOW TO

BARGAIN IN BALI Market shopping in Bali is an experience like no other. Here are our tips on how to haggle like a local WORDS STEPHANIE BROOKES

T

here is no doubt Bali is a shopper’s paradise but how do you know if you are getting a good deal? Many people feel awkward bargaining with the locals, especially if they are not used to it, but in Bali bargaining is a way of life. It’s fun engaging with the seller and the more you can joke around the better!

Remember to have fun with it! Where can I bargain? In the main markets of Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur and Ubud, and all the small side-street markets. Nothing has a price tag and, unlike department stores and supermarkets, you should haggle for your wares.

PHOTOGRAPH & ILLUSTRATION ISTOCKPHOTO.COM

When to bargain? For Indonesian vendors, haggling with customers (locals or visitors) is a way of life, so leave your guilt or feelings of discomfort at the door: market life is eccentric and vendors have sharpened skills on how to read a customer. For first-timers, it’s best to go shopping before noon when the bargains are at their best. If you go late in the afternoon around closing, the vendors are pretty tired and sometimes there’s little

motivation to negotiate the best price for both parties.

How much should I pay?

How long does the process take?

How can I make the experience fun for everyone?

What’s the etiquette?

Look at the haggling process as entertainment. Essentially, it’s a game of to and fro between a buyer and the seller. It’s about finding the middle ground

become aggressive. Just be polite and say it’s more than you planned to spend. Always leave with a big smile and show respect.

between an outrageous price and a fair price. If both parties are happy, you have a deal.

The asking price will always be overinflated, hence the need to haggle. Sellers will read buyers quickly and ascertain how well off they are, then establish the starting price. No matter what the price is, offer 50 per cent lower and work up from there. Throw in some humour, offer a laugh or two and try to get on well with the seller.

How do I close the deal?

How long is a piece of string? Haggling for an item takes as long as you want it to. If you’re lucky, it could take just five minutes to agree on a price, other times it could take 20 minutes of leaving and being encouraged back to the stall by the seller.

Closing a deal from the seller’s point of view means they have made a profit, and they try for around 30 per cent, which covers the running and staffing costs of the business.

Travel info

Balinese people value politeness highly. If you are getting frustrated with the bargaining process, they will feel this. Walking away for a breather is fine; it’s very unusual for the sellers to

A

a new clutch of cocktails in cans and bottles has evolved far beyond the Ready to Drink (RTD) alcopops of teen parties. Sydney’s Continental Deli, Bar & Bistro took its love for hand-canned goods a step further when they whacked a lid on two iconic cocktails. The Mar-tinny and Can-hatten have become signature sips; with Warhol-inspired tins an Insta dream. “Everyone has loved the novelty factor … and we’ve found that you certainly can’t overestimate the value of a good pun,” says Bar manager Mikey Nicolian. “Canning the drinks also offers a level of quality control that you can’t guarantee with a madeto-order drink,” he says.

18-19_EXPERIENCE_IMBIBE.indd 19

“I can batch them up, and be sure that every drink is of consistent quality.” In a cheeky nod to a super-sweet RTD, Surry Hills’ Dead Ringer pre-batches its Yuzu Breezer in a bottle sporting a familiar batwinged logo. “Bacardi Breezers have actually been discontinued in Australia,” says co-owner Tim Philips. “But it was a favourite drink of mine when I was younger, so

we came up with a more contemporary version, with a more developed palate.” The refreshing blend of rum, citric plum liqueur and soda is certainly all grown up. Tim believes there’s a niche for high-end RTDs. “Drinks that rely on good spirits, fortified wines and bitterness are a definite improvement on sugary, boozy soft drinks that the market is already flooded with,” he says. Melbourne’s The Everleigh has joined the RTD brigade in style with its Famous Four small-batch cocktails – Martini, Negroni, Manhattan and the Old Fashioned. “Our mission was to manufacture our cocktails to the exact same standard of those ordered at the bar,” says Zara Young.

Melbourne CBD With a rock’n’roll jukebox, vinyl booths and classic cocktails ready at the twist of a screw cap, The Everleigh’s little sibling is a rollicking good time. Watch out for the release of the venue’s own RTDs. heartbreakerbar.com.au

Take the cake At Burch & Purchese in Melbourne’s South Yarra, MasterChef regular Darren Purchese creates mind-blowing cakes and rainbow-hued dessert tubes, perhaps a reimagined lamington, or a crisp blend of coconut, passionfruit, ginger and mint. “I opened Burch & Purchese because I wanted dessert to be at the forefront of everyone’s mind. I was at the start of a huge explosion for all things sweet in Australia,” says Darren. “Desserts are a reward, and if people indulge they want great quality.”

Serious scoops Our taste in ice cream is also increasingly sophisticated. Italianstyle offerings are up for grabs at award-winning Cow and The Moon in Sydney (named world’s best gelato makers in 2014 for their almond affogato flavour), or Pidapipo in Melbourne (home of the Nutella fountain). Adelaide boy, Nick Palumbo, who opened the first Gelato Messina in Darlinghurst in 2002, has 13 stores to his name (including one in Las Vegas). Nick’s new venture, the Messina Creative Department, opened in April. At an intimate table for eight, chef Donato Toce serves seven boundary-pushing

dessert courses that “flirt with savoury”. Think almond gelato with potato, brown butter cream, porcini crisp and caviar. It’s a trip.

Sweet meets savoury Balancing sweet and savoury flavours is nothing new in Asia, where desserts have long centred on grains, vegetables and legumes. Taiwanese dessert chain Meet Fresh, now in Australia, nails the sweetsavoury balance perfectly, with taro balls, herbal jellies and silken tofu puddings. Melbourne’s Dessert Story offers these specialties along with Hong Kong staples such as glutinous rice dumplings. It’s the perfect excuse to skip dinner.

Experience I HOME

What can we expect to see in stores this spring and summer? At Barnaby Lane we try to ensure that we design furniture that can transcend the trends. However, I think we will see more of what we call the “naturalist” style, which incorporates whites, clean minimalist themes, use of natural materials such as timber and rattan, earthy tones (terracotta, desert tones and earthy greens) and bringing the outdoors in either through architectural design or mimicking the outdoors with the use of indoor plants. I believe that simplicity is the key, then you should add your own personality. That’s what creates a beautiful home.

Get inspired

Its never been easier to find inspiration. Check out these great Instgrammers for a daily dose of design. @fenton_and_fenton for global inspiration (above) @bonnieandneil for richly decorative textiles @thedesignfiles for trendsetters and stylemakers @templeandwebster for access to exclusive sales @jardanfurniture for stylish handcrafted pieces

I believe that simplicity is the key, then you should add your own personality Where do you find inspiration? Inspiration for me comes in many different forms – art, design, architecture, interiors, fashion. Travelling constantly and witnessing different cultures also offers inspiration. I also prefer to start with natural materials and then design from that. This process can provide us with something beautiful and those pieces can really create a room.

Which style do you love the most? I love Scandi/Nordic themes, particularly muted tones such as grey, blush, rose pinks, copper and marble. In our next range expect to see a lot more use of metals – iron and aluminium with leather and canvas seats.

29

Any tips for buying key furniture pieces? Find the furniture that you love and design the room around that. Furniture should last a long time, so I think it’s worth investing in something that can fit with different styles. barnabylane.com.au

Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler’s Melbourne nursery Loose Leaf isn’t your typical suburban plant store. Described in Wona and Charlie’s new book as “a greenhouse gallery” and “a gathering of plants”, Loose Leaf offers an inspired re-thinking about how to bring nature into your life from creating works of art using plants, seeds and sticks to adding an element of botanical design to your home. “For us it’s about creating a connection to nature indoors. There is also growing evidence that access to green spaces and greenery actually improves mental health and wellbeing,” they say. “A great way to bring greenery into your home is through sharing cuttings and seeds. It’s a good way to share rare and interesting plants between friends. We can’t wait to plant the Russian giant sunflower seeds we were given earlier this year. Apparently the heads of the flower can grow up to 30cm in diameter and the stems 3m tall!” looseleafstore.com.au

am a huge fan of the hammam. If there’s one around I’ll happily abandon my children and clothes and get straight into it (in Turkey it seemed okay to do that; the women in the hammam practically adopted my son. In Melbourne it’s more about booking a babysitter). My first introduction to the hammam was in Paris: a huge one hides inside the Paris Mosque. You gather your friends and pick the right day (men and women have different days), strip off (almost entirely) then disappear into a huge wet area and heat up in the surrounding steam and by pouring hot water over yourself (and your friends, it’s very communal).

38-41_EXPERIENCE_SPA.indd 39

39 When you’re hot and sweaty enough, you cover yourself in savon noir (a thick, brown jelly-like substance), wash it off, then wait in a queue for a super-strong woman to rub the skin off your body with a mitt. Shower the grey rolls of dead skin off, and you feel cleaner than the day you were born, even if at the Paris Mosque at least, you might feel a little roughly-handled. Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa’s new hammam is not quite like that. Firstly, the actual hammam room is inside The Sanctuary, a unisex space featuring a generous round salt pool, a large spa with jet couches as well as a new, almost-outdoor, creek-side bathing spa and a plunge pool.

If there’s one around I’ll happily abandon my children and clothes and get straight into it

It’s not conducive to taking off your clothes. In fact, the room may just look like another steam room – albeit one decorated in sparkling brass with a glittery ceiling. It’s got two solid benches, both with taps at one end, and a small stone sink opposite the glass entrance door. On first glance you may wonder what it’s all about.

Follow this list and you’ll soon be a hammam expert: 40

1. You’ll need a friend, and fresh, well-soaked skin (don’t get a massage with oils beforehand), savon noir (the aforementioned black soap) and an exfoliating glove – the Kessa Glove is authentic and recommended. Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa sells Mira’s Hand Moroccan hammam kits (including exfoliating glove, savon noir and detoxifying rhassoul clay) for $29.

This is so much more fun with someone else... 4. Pop the glove on and, using long, not circular, strokes, rub your skin. The more you repeat, the more skin comes off – you’ll probably be very surprised! Wash yourself and the benches clean. 5. Next step is covering

yourself in rhassoul clay (a healing Moroccan clay, known for its high silica and magnesium content), leave it on for five minutes, then wash it off.

3. Wash the savon noir off with the hose, or get your friend to wash it off for you. This is so much more fun with someone else – in the traditional Moroccan method hammam time is all about celebration and community.

You should feel soft, shiny and determined to make hammam a regular ritual. It’s a shame that you can’t get naked, but you can take the leftovers of the kit home and give the rest of your body the good scrubbing it deserves.

Kerry Watt takes dogs and their owners on winery tours around Victoria. It wasn’t initially in her grand plan. She was working in the corporate world and studying for her MBA when a tutor in a philosophy class asked her what she was passionate about. Kerry’s answer? “Going to wineries, being an amateur foodie, and I love being out with my dog [Diesel, now five].” Kerry started spending more time thinking about what she loved doing, and came up with the concept of Gourmet Pawprints. Today, three years later, her guests and their dogs hop on her newly-bought bus – “I swapped my MBA for a bus licence!” – and the winery tour begins. It’s all meticulously planned, from pre-trip assessments of the dog’s behaviour, to making sure the dogs are de-sexed, vaccinated and healthy. “We have doggy seat belts, spare collars and leads and water, and dry shampoo,” she says.

It’s lovely to hear their stories and how much they love the product. I didn’t expect any of this,” she says. Like all these success stories, it all started with the love of a dog.

Cleanse your skin once again and reapply serum. Follow with a top-notch tinted moisturiser, which will provide hydrating benefits, as well as sun protection and “your-skinbut-better” coverage. If you need to, use a little brightening concealer under your eyes to disguise dark circles.

Experience I SUITS YOU

So long, farewell KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR FAVOURITE CLOTHES

Three items of clothing you should think twice about keeping

WORDS PETER BARRETT

48-49_EXPERIENCE_SUITS YOU.indd 48

SHOES: That pair of fancy dress shoes you spent big bucks on for your wedding and never wore again? TAKE A WALK TIES: No, 12-centimetre wide, earth-tone ’70s ties aren’t coming back. PRESS EJECT T-SHIRTS: Frayed around the neck, faded ironic message on the front? I LOVE YOU, GOODBYE

According to Japanese organisational consultant Marie Kondo, the answer is to literally thank them. Her best-selling book The Life Changing Method of Tidying Up has spawned a worldwide cult of decluttering neatness freaks. Marie’s advice is to pick up each object in your home and ask yourself:

...we’ll go out for just one more beer together and have a serious man-to-inanimate-object chat does this spark joy in my life? If the answer is no, thank it for its service (clothes have feelings too, you know) and then put it in the ‘out’ pile. It sounds nuts but just give it a try.

As for Clarence, I’m not sure we’re ready to break up just yet. Maybe we’ll go out for just one more beer together and have a serious man-to-inanimate-object chat.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE hung up on an object when you give it a pet name. For me, it’s a piece of clothing I bought in Edinburgh 20 years ago. I still have “Clarence”, a pale, mustard-coloured cotton shirt printed with dozens of tiny cloned clarinet players. I like him (yes, it’s a male) for his bohemian, threadbare, comfortable feel – not to mention his tones, which suit my complexion. I’m even fond of the small hole accidentally burnt in him by a selfrolled cigarette all those carefree years ago. Objective evidence says it’s time Clarence and I parted ways. For starters he now stretches and contorts at the buttons where my girth has grown 20 years wider. Granted, I could lose the weight, but I’m actually pretty happy with the new, voluptuous me. It seems Clarence and I have (literally) out-grown each other. Every man has one or more of these pieces lurking in his closet. Knowing when to say goodbye to much-loved clothing is difficult but essential. But how does one properly honour that trusty, valiant and hard-working piece of clothing?

Working up a sweat!

I’m not the only one feeling the burn. Jess’ next activity is The Zig Zag of Hell (my term), in which each person is required to run forward to the net, back to the baseline, and then forward again in a Z, connecting three balls with bat (racquet) as Jess zings them over the net. We end up running continuously, from one side of the court and back again while a storm of green balls fly past knees and over heads. Despite the pace, time whizzes by and it’s unbelievable fun. In the final 20 minutes, we’re subjected to a cruel

Squats and lunges, jumps and side lunges, high-knee laps around and around kind of round-robin, in which, between dashing on and off the court for mini-matches, we must languish in plank position. I catch myself grinning. This is magic. Painful magic. When class is over we all stand around, hands on our knees, panting, and Jess consults a darkhaired girl in our group.

“How many steps did we run?” she asks. The brunette consults her pedometer. “5000,” she says. That’s about 4.5km. Not bad when you didn’t set out to run. Not bad at all. Cardio tennis is light on technique and heavy on banter – no need to be a pro. Jess also swears that your technique will improve aggressively with regular sessions, which I reckon might be true. If you can already manage to occasionally connect ball with racquet (I’ve got that now), you’ll be laughing (literally and otherwise). I aced it.

“I’VE NEVER BEEN particularly good at connecting ball with bat,” I say to Jess, my new coach. Wait – did I just say bat? My face turns pink. Racquet. I meant racquet. It’s been a while since I played tennis, obviously. But Cardio Tennis (more officially known as Fitbit Cardio Tennis thanks to a recent partnership with the health-tracking device company) has become a global trend in the past few years. What have I got to lose? It’s 6.30pm on a Monday and I’m at the courts of City Community Tennis in Sydney’s Prince Alfred Park. As feel-good tunes thump out like it’s 1999 (Jess has brought speakers), we take a warm-up jog around the court, and I feel myself start to relax. Maybe my rusty tennis set won’t be so rusty after all? Within 10 minutes of stepping onto the court, I’m tearing forward to make drop shots and then back for backhands – and I’m beginning to understand why Serena Williams has such great legs. Squats and lunges, jumps and side lunges, high-knee laps around and around. Forget about tennis, I know what my real weakness is – cardio.

How sweet it is

Melbourne provedore Kathy Tsaples shares the flavours of her heritage in Sweet Greek Life WORDS KRYSIA BONKOWSKI

t the Sweet Greek stall in Melbourne’s Prahran Market, the smell of home cooking envelops you in its warm embrace. The cosy space is filled with tightly packed trays of baklava, cakes and sweet and savoury pastries, and cabinets packed with fresh salads, home-cooked meals and mezze bites. The kitchen is hard at work producing still more; a batch of braised fava beans is perched on the counter, while flourless fruitcakes rise in the oven. In the middle of it all is owner Kathy Tsaples. Sweet Greek is Kathy’s passion project, started five years ago as she was recovering from a battle with cancer, and now a firm favourite in this gourmet inner-city market. In the beginning Kathy cooked every dish in her home kitchen, driving it in at five in the morning for that day’s trade. Now, much of the produce is prepared onsite by her small team, but Kathy is still the heart and soul of Sweet Greek. I’d been warned that it’s impossible for Kathy to cross the market

52-53_EXPERIENCE_RECIPE.indd 52

without being stopped for a chat and sure enough, as soon as we enter the sun-filled Market Lane café, a man spies Kathy and launches into an animated conversation in Greek. A child of Greek migrants who arrived in the early ‘50s, Kathy grew up in Melbourne’s east in a home “where everyone would be popping in, and sitting around the table laughing, eating, drinking and being happy.”

Coming home Waves of immigration in the 1950s and ‘60s brought generations of Greek families Down Under, the majority to Melbourne. A vibrant and close-knit community thrived, contributing to the multicultural weave of the city, until it was as normal to have baklava with your post-theatre coffee as shortbread. Melbourne still has the third-largest Greek community in the world, behind Athens and Thessaloniki. Kathy was brought up in the heart of this community. The preparation and sharing of meals is central to Kathy’s idea of family and cultural identity. “That’s how I grew up, just around the table, with

beautiful, simple food – nothing extravagant, nothing gourmet, but beautiful, authentic flavours,” she says. Her second cookbook Sweet Greek Life, out this month through Melbourne Books, is Kathy’s way of sharing that culture. Based on traditional Greek recipes, Kathy describes her food as

“wholesome dishes that come from the heart”. Typical of the Mediterranean diet, Sweet Greek Life is filled with comforting food made with good ingredients. Her Fig Cake (recipe below) was inspired the over-abundance of figs Kathy encountered on a recent trip to Greece. “They are figs like you’ve never had before, like eating honey,” Kathy says. “This cake takes me back to Greece … I’d go walking and see fields of currants drying out and figs both fresh and drying, and that just captivated me.” 53

FIG CAKE

52-53_EXPERIENCE_RECIPE.indd 53

METHOD Place the figs in a saucepan with the apple juice and water, and cook over medium heat until soft and plump. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Butter a 25-centimetre round cake tin and sprinkle it with some almond meal, or gluten-free flour. Pulse the figs in a food processor with the cognac until they are a fine purée. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together. Add the fig pulp and mix thoroughly. Add the almond meal, baking powder and salt, and combine thoroughly. Leave the batter to rest for 10 minutes, then pour it into the prepared tin and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.

CAKE • 300g good-quality Greek dried figs • 1 cup apple juice • ¼ cup water • 2 tbsp cognac • 12 eggs • 500g caster sugar • 500g almond meal • 2 tsp baking powder • ¼ tsp salt ICING • 500g fresh ricotta • 1 tsp vanilla extract • ½ cup icing sugar • 500g fresh, ripe figs • ½ cup flaked almonds, lightly toasted

To make the icing, pulse the ricotta, vanilla extract and icing sugar in a food processor to a creamy consistency. When the cake is cool, generously ice the top of the cake with the ricotta mixture. Tear the fresh figs in half and pile on top of the cake, and finish with the flaked almonds.

ixed bags of lollies, ice creams and chips. Ice-cold fizzy drinks, chocolate bars and chewing gum. For kids growing up in suburban Australia, the local milk bar offered a treasure trove of treats. Family-run businesses, often attached to a dwelling, milk bar owners worked where they lived and all the locals knew their names. Eamon Donnelly, who has spent the past 14 years photographing milk bars in Victoria and New South Wales, loved the local milk bar in the East Geelong, Victoria, community where he grew up. “It was run by Dave and Peggy, but we simply called it Dave’s,” he says. Years later, after Eamon’s family had moved to another part of Geelong, Eamon discovered Dave’s had closed and the building was being renovated. He took a photograph of the milk bar, but the knowledge it was gone made him wonder about the fate of other businesses. He soon discovered that many of them were closed, but their colourful

About the photographer

They are still an important stepping stone for many migrants, and very much a part of our local community history signage and shop windows often remained. So he set about capturing the spirit of the local milk bar in all its (sometimes faded) glory. “Many of the innercity milk bars have been lost but there are still working milk bars in the outer suburbs and country towns,” says Eamon. “They are still an

important stepping stone for many migrants, and very much a part of our local community history.” Eamon says his memories of visiting his local milk bar are still strong. “Going to the milk bar on your BMX bike, buying a bag of lollies and hanging out the front with your friends. It was heaven.”

In 2002 Geelong-born illustrator, designer and photographer Eamon Donnelly took his first photograph of a milk bar and his interest soon became an obsession. “I started with Polaroid, then moved to digital,” says Eamon. He now has around 5500 digital images of milk bars taken in suburban streets and country towns across Australia. Eamon Donnelly’s MILK BARS!

t’s 7pm on a Monday night and a gritty, low-lit basement haunt in Perth’s inner city is humming like a 747 engine. All seats are taken at Long Chim, the city’s newest street-food restaurant. From the ultra-hip art coating the walls to the chilliamped bowls of authentic fare, everything sizzles to the max. What’s more, Long Chim is run by Australian-born Michelin-star chef David Thompson who chose Perth – that’s right, Perth – for his first Australian opening in 20 years. The Thai cooking master, who received a Michelin star at Nahm in London in 2001, opened his last Australian restaurant, Sailors Thai, in Sydney in 1995. Long Chim has siblings in Singapore and now Sydney. Hidden in the State Buildings’ vaulted basement, the venue oozes an intangible energy that is symptomatic of the West Australian capital’s smashing makeover: over the past decade, the once-dull concrete jungle has morphed into a buzzing urban playground.

64-73_EXPLORE PERTH.indd 66

As someone who’s been living in the WA capital for the past 10 years, I’ve watched as Perth turned its attention away from the stunning coast of translucent waters and sugary sand to refocus on its core. Sure, those epic beaches are still in the rear-view mirror, but with a series of significant new openings sparking up the city, urban life is now front and centre.

The State Buildings is one such hotspot. Walking off the street and into the collection of heritage structures that were built in the 1870s, it’s hard to believe they were left to rot for decades. People spill from Petition Beer Corner, a craft-beer haven created by the local founders of Little Creatures Brewing, and slink up the steps into the adjoining restaurant, Petition Kitchen, where Jesse Blake, formerly a chef at Melbourne’s award-winning Cumulus Inc, is on the pans. Pared-back walls hint at days gone by, when the building served as the original home of Western Australia’s government, harbouring treasury documents and land titles.

Treasury. Just beyond, an artfully lit lounge bar called Halford draws cocktail aficionados into its vaultlike den. It too has star power: John Parker, who rocked Melbourne’s bar scene with Gin Palace and Madame Brussels, opened it after relocating to the wild west. “I’d been coming to Perth for 10 years and was seeing how it was slowly changing and evolving,” John says. “When I first started visiting, people were keen to leave. But in those last couple of years more creative people were staying so I figured there’d be a flow-on to the arts scene, food and music, which has happened.”

Almost within sight of the State Buildings, Elizabeth Quay is redefining the city’s connection to the Swan River, which slices the metropolis in two. A colossal earthmoving effort saw stage one, a $440 million waterfront entertainment precinct at the base of the CBD’s skyscrapers, open in January. Thousands have since strolled along its riverside promenades, over its curvy bridge and past its 29-metre statement sculpture, palm trees and playground to new cafés and restaurants. Chic tri-level venue, The Reveley, combines a casual eatery, a fine diner and a rooftop bar boasting epic views at dusk. Neon illuminates the inlet, and the suburban skyline of South Perth shines across the river. Both zones reveal a progressive loosening of the tie around Perth’s once-conservative neck. A gamechanging decision in 2007 to allow small bars to operate set in motion the city’s reinvention: now there are some 130 petite wine-quaffing, cocktail-sipping venues in the city, and a dining culture that continues well after 8.30pm.

Melbourne has an alleyway feel, whereas we’ve got larger-scale murals walls and nondescript buildings, and new life pulses in onceforgotten spaces. “The impact has been huge,” says Lynda Dorrington, who heads up FORM, an independent, non-profit body focused on injecting WA with greater creativity. She says the art – sprayed, stencilled and splashed by big names such as Belgium’s Roa,

Millo from Italy and Maya Hayuk from the US – changed Perth in the eyes of residents and visitors. “It’s a calling card that says we’re open for business but we have a more casual approach to life and we’re not so hung up on the conservative,” Lynda says. Through the three-year-old Public program, more than 200 local and international artists have been engaged to create 166 artworks in public places. The result is a cleverly curated urban gallery. “That’s the difference between Melbourne and Perth,” says Rhianna Pezzaniti, FORM’s Public project manager. “Melbourne has

Other big-deal openings include a $1.4 billion stadium seating 60,000 and a sports precinct linked to the city via pedestrian bridge due in 2018. Work has begun on a $430 million museum expected to open in 2020 that sits across from the Art Gallery of WA, where John Parker opened hip gallery bistro, Arthouse, in June. Perth City Link will sink train lines to reconnect the city centre’s polished streets with neighbouring Northbridge’s grungy, artistic and multicultural pockets and Yagan Square, a $73.5 million pedestrian zone named after an Aboriginal warrior. The square, with a produce market, wildflower garden, cafés, pop-up shops and a 45-metre digital tower, will open mid next year. “Lots of Aboriginal stories will be told in a subtle way, through art and design,” says Dr Richard Walley, a Noongar elder providing cultural advice on the project. “It’s a meeting place, where people of all walks of life can meet and experience stories.”

Based in a 130-year-old railway building, it’s open to anyone wandering in. There are fears Perth’s new pep may be curtailed by the downturn in the mining sector’s prosperity, but Lynda says it’ll be the opposite. “When you run an 18-hour day for the resources industry, there’s no room for creativity or urbanity. It’s just eat, work and sleep. A slowing economy drives you into diversification. So now in Perth, it’s eat, work and play.”

F

ew capital cities have a holiday island just 19 kilometres across the ocean, beckoning from a prime spot on the horizon. Rotto, as Perth locals affectionately call it, is Rottnest Island. The name actually means rat’s nest, a misnomer coined by 17th century Dutch explorers who thought the cute-as-a-button, selfiefriendly quokkas were rodents. Fast-forward 400 years and the macropods are so famous on Instagram that even celebrities

such as Hugh Jackman are getting in on the act. Rotto is where West Australians spend their childhood holidays, where blushing teens steal their first kiss, where big-ticket entrepreneurs and mining magnates moor their streamlined boats, and where bikes rule over cars. Everyone gets around on bikes, from tots on trainer wheels to their grandparents on vintage models. The island’s tin-shed-based bike-hire service is believed to be the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere, housing

some 1300 bikes. In peak season, about 700 are borrowed daily. Not only can kids run about unhindered, quokkas are also free to safely roam. There are an estimated 8000 to 12,000 quokkas on the Class A nature reserve (this is Western Australia’s most protected public land rating). Handfuls of quokkas are regularly spotted weaving through legs at the oceanside pub, and watching as people have a hit of tennis or a round of golf.

Time capsule 76

“Rottnest is a good blast from the past,” says Peter ‘Pedro’ Minekus, one of the few island inhabitants, a privilege extended only to select staff of various businesses during their employment. Private ownership has been prohibited on Rottnest since 1839, and the residential population numbers just 200 people. Having spent 37 of his past 54 years deliberately marooned on the rock, Pedro, who works at the general store, is its longest-serving resident. “There’s nowhere like Rottnest, it’s really unique. I meet people from all around the world and they’re just gobsmacked,” he says. About 500,000 people visit Rotto each year, and nearly half of those have been 10 times or more. Much of the main

settlement in Thompson Bay is made of up peachhued stone buildings that date back to the 1840s. Once a farming outpost for European settlers, then a penal colony, Rottnest was transformed into a holiday island in the 1930s. It’s been fiercely protected ever since – so keen are people to maintain Rottnest’s simplicity that salt-water showers in the visitor’s accommodation weren’t upgraded to fresh water until the 1990s, and TVs were introduced to rooms just a decade ago. Pedro says Rottnest’s “back-tothe-basics” style is what makes it special. “It’s the simple life: kids can walk around freely,

A natural wonder The honey-coloured sand and azure waters of Rotto’s 63 bays are a salve to the eyes. Edged by limestone rock and low scrub, some have great snorkelling and others boast epic waves. The elevated temperature of the Leeuwin Current, a southflowing body of water that envelops Rottnest, means diverse coral gardens and 135 tropical fish species survive in this southern reach of the Indian Ocean. Comparatively, along the metropolitan coast, only 11 tropical fish species

Rottnest’s “back-to-thebasics” style is what makes it special have been counted. There are enough activities to justify an extended stay too. Guides wearing yellow T-shirts give free tours of every historical and natural aspect of the island. Some 45km of trails, developed by the Wadjemup Bidi Project, lead to a new seal-viewing platform at Cathedral Rocks at the island’s western end.

There are multiple ferry trips to Rottnest daily. Fares are cheapest on Tuesdays. One departure option is Fremantle’s B-Shed, left of the train station, which only takes 25 minutes. Rous Head at Northport Ferry Terminal is ideal if you need a car park. Two-wheeled Segway vehicles are available for hire too and organised tours roll off-road to World War II military remnants, while skydives from 15,000 feet deliver aerial views. There are also tours by bike or bus, island circumnavigations by boat and scenic flights Trust us when we say a day trip really isn’t long enough.

Our tip: Depart from Barrack Street jetty in Perth to score a scenic cruise of the Swan River, which eventually meets the ocean.

Where to stay: Rent one of the basic-butcharming Rottnest Island Units – we love staying at Thompson Bay or Geordie Bay. Heritage View Cottages have fantastic outlooks.

Where to eat: Hotel Rottnest, the bakery or Geordie’s Café.

IN THE GLOBAL village we call Earth, it sometimes feels as though every inch of land has been finely combed, with nothing more to discover. Not so in Western Australia, where as many as 50 new species of wildflower are found each year, adding to the state’s already impressive total of 12,000 species. “We’re in the top 20 places in the world for species diversity,” says Rob Davis, an identification botanist at the Western Australian Herbarium in Perth. “Seventy per cent are endemic to the southwest, and found nowhere else in world.” Wildflowers start blooming in the midnorth in June and progressively open, like a wave that rolls down the state, until November, when they peter out at WA’s southern tip. Going on a self-drive wildflower hunt is more of an act of exploration than you might think. Many wildflowers are tiny and have to be tracked down: the smallest measure just 2mm. Rob recommends using a magnifying glass.

79

“When you blow them up you really get to see the beauty in them – it’s another world,” he says. “The vividness of the colours, the patterns on the petals, the intricacy of the hairs, it’s really quite stunning.” In Perth, the state’s floral gems are distilled into a magical garden for the Kings Park Wildflower Festival, and can be seen throughout October. Another hotspot this month is the Darling Scarp in the Perth Hills, particularly John Forrest National Park. Further afield, hit up Augusta on the southwest coast, Mt Lindesay near Denmark, Fitzgerald River National Park, and Esperance.

ELEN Brierty calls it the MasterChef effect. “When we first started cooking classes, it tended to be middleaged women who came. Now we have more 20-to 30-something couples as well as lots of 14-to 16-year-olds who want something more sophisticated than kids’ classes offer.” Helen owns Spirit House, the restaurant and cooking school in the quaint ginger-processing town

of Yandina. It’s difficult to imagine that the movie-set location, all towering, creaking bamboo canes and dense tropical foliage, set around a waterlily-filled pond, was once a bare paddock. Or that two decades on, the Sunshine Coast’s oldest cooking school would still be running their Asian-inspired classes daily. “We were lucky when we opened 20 years ago, there were so many cheap flights to Bali and Thailand and people would come back from

their holiday wanting to replicate dishes they’d eaten there,” Helen says. “Asian produce grows incredibly well here, so that lends a certain authenticity to our classes.” A region that stretches from the verdant hills of the Blackall Range to the beaches of Noosa and Tewantin, and south to Caloundra, the Sunshine Coast has been blessed with a shopping list of produce from earth and sea. At The Spit at Mooloolaba where the trawlers moor, you can buy sweet

ocean king prawns, line-caught tuna and snapper, and live spanner crab, sand crab or mud crab. In the hinterland, farm gate stalls sell their excess on an honesty policy. Drop money into the box and help yourself to sun-warmed pineapples, ripe strawberries, juicy limes, macadamia nuts or avocados. Other farmers take their produce to weekly markets such as those at Noosa and Eumundi, or produce stores including The Big Top at Maroochydore or Belmondos at Noosa. The mild hinterland climate and luxuriant pastures have also attracted a burgeoning boutique dairy and cheese industry. Between cheesemakers such as part-time jazz musician Trevor Hart of Cedar Street Cheeserie, Woombye Cheese Company’s Graeme Paynter and Swiss cheesemaker Christian Nobel of Fromart, the region produces halloumi, fetta, brie, washed rind and Swiss cheese. Take a close look as you drive along and you might spot the buffalo

that supply milk for Cedar Street cheese. And, yes those are camels. Their nutritious milk is being made into Australia’s first camel yoghurt at nearby Maleny Cheese. All this abundance is celebrated every year in May when national and international chefs gather to demonstrate their skills with local produce at the Noosa Food and Wine Festival (18-21 May, 2017). The rest of the year, the local produce is on permanent show on restaurant menus including Thomas Corner, Ricky’s and Wasabi, Spirit House, The Long Apron in Montville and The Tamarind at Maleny. Tamarind accommodation and cooking school manager Bobbie Murphy agrees that TV cooking shows have had a substantial effect on their bottom line. “In the last year, we’ve had to increase our class numbers from once a week to three times a week,” she says. “We’ve also had a lot more older kids coming with their parents.” Bobbie also has noticed a spike

Gilbert uses its produce, including rare Japanese vegetables and leaves, for the restaurant. Danielle says Noosa had no formal cooking school of its own. “I had the idea a long time ago, but it was a matter of finding the right space,” she says. “We thought about moving Wasabi somewhere else to enable opening the school but it’s just such an unbeatable location [on the Noosa River], it wasn’t an option.” After finding the perfect spot, just a few doors from the restaurant, she opened The Cooking School in August. The school offers Japanese classes, albeit not as technical as the cuisine plated up at Wasabi, plus French and Asian classes, and sessions by guest chefs. Danielle says the focus will always be on the produce, rather than the chef.

nder the Sydney Harbour Bridge’s southern approach, Aboriginal elder Margret Campbell is cradling a tiny pot of ground ochre. As weekday traffic and trains rumble overhead, Aunty Marg, as she’s known, daubs the pale paste onto our wrists, connecting us to Mother Earth and the sandstone beneath our feet. Born at sunset on a bend of the Macleay River in New South Wales, Aunty Marg has 12 different ways of identifying herself – from her mother’s and father’s clans on the NSW mid-north and south coasts to her various animal totems – all of which link her into an extraordinarily deep network of kinship and connection. My eyes are drawn to the ochre symbols drying on her left arm. She tells our tour group what they mean after we travel to the harbour’s northern side to view the outlines of a whale and a man etched into a rock platform. We return to the Royal Botanic Gardens to get up close to the fig trees she considers “grandmothers”.

(Mad Bastards) and Indigenous director-cinematographer Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah, The Sapphires). The film promotes 50 businesses known as Indigenous Tourism Champions.

The new entrepreneurs Sand Dune Adventures in Port Stephens near Newcastle is one of these champions. The venture, which mixes high-adrenaline quad-biking with cultural insights, is a not-for-profit enterprise run by the Worimi Local Aboriginal Land Council. The land council’s CEO, Andrew Smith, says many people who come to quad-bike the Stockton Bight sand dunes are surprised to find the tours incorporate aspects of Indigenous culture such as bush tucker and midden sites (middens provide evidence of prior occupation). In eight years, Andrew has gone from waving signs at passing cars to drum up bookings to running a $1.3 million business, with profits funding health, education and training programs. The venture also provides employment for the local Indigenous community. “We’ve come through a lot of change even in my short life span. All of a sudden, for whatever reason, it’s really cool to be Aboriginal,” says Andrew.

In Far North Queensland, Kuku Yalanji man Juan Walker from the Daintree/Mossman area guides visitors around his home territory north of Port Douglas. For Juan, his venture Walkabout Adventures isn’t only about sharing knowledge with tourists. “It allows me to stay on country,” he says. When he first entered the tourism industry – guiding guests at Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa – Juan had to battle to overcome his shyness. “It took me a while to be able to talk to strangers,” he says. “That was the hardest part.” Today, there’s no trace of that shy young man. I join Juan as he confidently leads American visitors Joy and Tom to an uninhabited beach to search for pippis (cockles) in the wet sand. The pippis are the first ingredients needed for lunch. In Juan’s hometown of Cooya Beach we stalk through the shallows with bamboo spears hunting mud crabs. Eventually, we bag enough to head back to Juan’s parents’ house for a feast of pippis and mudcrabs steamed in garlic, chilli, butter and coconut oil. After lunch we head to nearby Mossman Gorge for an afternoon of swimming. Juan dives from a granite boulder into the Mossman River’s crystal-clear waters, making it look effortless. What’s simply a river, mountain or headland to most Australians is something else entirely to Indigenous Australians. The next day we head further north to ride the Skyrail cableway, which travels 7.5km between Cairns and Kuranda. We disembark at Barron Falls to explore the rainforest in Barron Gorge National Park on an Indigenous ranger-led tour. Zane Saunders proudly mixes English with Djabugay, a local Indigenous language. The Skyrail can be paired with

An interactive evening show finishes with a dramatic fireball shooting into the air. Tjapukai’s CEO, Greg Erwin, says one of the best parts of the experience is that visitors can chat with park staff, many of whom are Indigenous. “Having a positive engagement with an Indigenous Australian is something that a lot of people don’t have the opportunity to do in their everyday life,” Greg says. “We find that people highly value that experience.” People jumped at the chance to join a new Indigenous tour that launched in Cape York this

year. The six-day Journey into Olkola Country tour (intrepidtravel.com), which runs in cooler months, is a joint venture between Intrepid Travel and the Olkola people who were handed their land back in December 2014 after 30 years of campaigning. Intrepid co-founder, Geoff Manchester, attended the handover ceremony. “The emotion of getting their land back was just overwhelming for some of them,” says Geoff. “Their connection with the land was so obvious.” The tours, which return next year, include camping and yarning around a fire.

Heart of Australia This kind of simple, direct interaction is also now part of staying at Ayers Rock Resort. After The Indigenous Land Corporation took over in 2011, establishing Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia to manage the resort, the number of Indigenous employees increased (there were only two at the time of the sale, today there are 309) along

with a program of free cultural activities such as listening to Indigenous storytellers and learning moves from an Indigenous dance troupe. Guests can also buy paintings and carvings from an Indigenous art stall near the Town Square lawn area and join one of the artist-led dot-painting workshops. Those who want to delve even deeper can take a bush-tucker tour and learn how to find food in central Australia’s seemingly inhospitable landscape, thanks to tour group Spirit Emotion Intellect Task (SEIT). As the sector continues to grow, the experiences are widening, catering to every type of traveller. Longitude 131°, the luxury property near Uluru, offers an Ernabella Arts tour – one of the newest experiences in the Indigenous Tourism Champions portfolio. The tour takes guests into the closed community of Ernabella to meet the acclaimed resident ceramicists, watch them work, and try their hand at playing artist for the day.

h Singapore, how you’ve changed. This single-minded city-state has leapt from colonialism to futurism in a few bold steps. The Singapore of 2016 is the city as spectacle, a place carefully curated to dazzle the imagination, aided and abetted by engineers to whom the words ‘conceptually impossible’ or ‘ridiculously expensive’ are anathema. If you haven’t been to Singapore in the past 10 years you really haven’t been to Singapore at all. Sure it’s the same tropical island perched at the tip of the Malay Peninsula; a concrete jungle so devoted to commerce that it feels at times as if there’s one air-conditioned shopping mall per head of population. And it remains so eerily clean and orderly. But 53 years after late Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew planted a mempat tree to kickstart the national movement for tree planting, his vision is extant in the quasiJurassic Park sight of the Parkroyal on Pickering, where levitating palm trees and vine-choked balconies look like they’ve

hatched a sinister plot to retake the 16-floor hotel. And then there are the spectacular unions of flora, fantasy and technology, foremost being the vaunted Gardens by the Bay where a laser show plays twice a night among 18 high-tech Supertrees, huge manmade structures destined forevermore to be compared to author John Wyndham’s terrifying fictional triffids. But it’s still possible to discover a Singapore where being green doesn’t involve a 35-metre man-made waterfall inside a climatecontrolled bio-dome. 96

To the island In a nation famous for its religious diversity and tolerance but where everyone worships at the altar of gadgetry, the 10-minute boat ride across the Johor Strait to the island of Pulau Ubin - one of Singapore’s 63 islands - represents the best kind of culture shock. It’s only a couple of kilometres from Singapore proper but feels like its 50 years back in time, a portal to what’s widely regarded as the last remaining kampong (traditional village) where residents live a life untroubled by running water or electricity. Getting to Pulau Ubin is half the fun. From Changi Ferry Terminal at Singapore’s northeast, grab a bumboat – a wooden boat powered by

94-99_EXPLORE_SINGAPORE.indd 96

a diesel engine so loud you’ll need to shout to be heard. Boats only take off when they’ve reached capacity (12 passengers) but if you don’t want to wait, you can pay S$36 (A$35) for the whole boat to get moving. Pulau Ubin is Malay for Granite Island but the 3000-odd residents, mostly indigenous Malays who once called this 10.19 sq km island home, have long gone. Quiet Islamic cemeteries with simple stone markers are one of the few remaining echoes of the Muslim population, who have also since moved on. These days the island is home to more than 100 ethnic Chinese reliant on fishing and tourists, although not necessarily in that order. Half a dozen bicycle rental shops line the main street, so take the hint: seeing Pulau Ubin is best done on two wheels. There are few cars and it’s an exhilarating form of cultural whiplash to go from the thirdmost densely populated territory in the world

(after Macau and Monaco) to weaving alone through forest thick with rubber trees, durian and jackfruit, and past the lily-covered ponds that once upon a time were fish farms. The forest is busy reclaiming some of the abandoned ramshackle wooden houses, but others have signs of life – washing strung along the verandah, or neatly tended vegetable plots. Airliners roar overhead from nearby Changi airport but otherwise the silence is punctuated by macaque monkeys arguing in the trees and the crowing of the occasional red junglefowl, a rather aristocratic-

looking ancestor of the domestic chicken. Other idiosyncratic wildlife emerges on the island’s south-east in the Chek Jawa Wetlands, where a boardwalk across the water at low tide reveals curious two-legged mudskippers and carpet anemones. Even more idiosyncratic is the Tudorstyle house built by a wealthy British tea planter in the colonial period, complete with a decidedly optimistic fireplace. These days it’s an information centre; those craving colonial-style comforts for a stay on the island will have to be satisfied with the three-star Celestial Ubin Beach Resort or the three basic camping sites – register a day in advance for a camping permit, BYO tent, water and food, and pray the chatty monkeys have an early night.

Food for thought Back on the main island, the paradox of modern Singapore asserts itself in its food culture. A dozen dishes, from Hainanese chicken rice to char kway teow (a stir-fried prawn, chicken and noodle dish), barbecued sambal stingray and chilli crab, jostle for supremacy as the national dish – yet Singapore grows only around 10 per cent of its produce. It’s a disconnect from the food obsession on the island, but in the green Dempsey Hill area (once a nutmeg plantation then later the home of British officers)

The hybrid Vanda ‘Miss Joaquin’ is the national flower more cultivated kind, the 157-year-old Singapore Botanic Gardens is one of only three gardens in the world (and the only one in the tropics) to enjoy UNESCO World Heritage status.

Here, nature is triaged into colours – there’s a summer zone of pinks and reds, a spring zone of golds and yellows, and perhaps most beautiful of all, the cool, crisp tones of winter. The winter orchids bloom, ghost-like, in the early morning, before the city has risen for the day and assumed its habitual cracking

a restaurant is tentatively flying the flag for the farm-to-table ethos. Spearheaded by renowned expat Australian chef Ryan Clift from Edible Garden City, a grow-your-own-food champion, Open Farm Community sits on a large plot (a reclaimed golf driving range behind the Jim Thompson Thai restaurant) where the breezy dining room is surrounded by an edible garden. The idea came out of Ryan’s frustration at importing herbs and flowers and throwing most of them away (due to spoilage). Taking a wander around reveals a wealth of plants such as tapioca, papaya and citronella that seem to grow in the humid tropical heat right in front of you before being snipped by chefs and turned into elegant modern food such as chimichurri with panfried sea bass with a green blanket of mint puree.

asmania is Australia’s prettiest state, and it’s fair to say that’s no fluke. Close to half the island is protected under World Heritage, marine or forest reserve and national park classification. Its skies can be illuminated by the Aurora Australis like nowhere else, it contains the southern hemisphere’s largest untouched temperate rainforest and its plants and animals are survivors from the ancient Gondwana supercontinent. Australia’s most southern state also has the nation’s bestpreserved colonial history, plus a growing reputation for quality fresh produce and cool-climate wines. The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), a privatelyowned museum complex in Hobart, single-handedly lures visitors from afar and worldclass golfing, fly-fishing and luxury lodges attract their share of attention. But when you escape these creature comforts, Tasmania’s 2000km of walking tracks step things up. Choose from routes along coastal paths, rainforest waterfalls, isolated mountains or rolling farmlands. Here are five of the best, from simple day hikes to week-long expeditions.

There’s never a dull moment on Australia’s most iconic multi-day walk. The trail through the heart of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is packed with breathtaking scenery from Ronny Creek to Cynthia Bay. Stick to the track and there’s no section that’s overly difficult; you’re hiking through glacier-carved valleys and across buttongrass moorlands for much of the time. The exceptions are the climbs to Marion’s Lookout, the steepest section on the trail, and over Pelion Gap and Du Cane Gap. To really appreciate this national park, add two or three extra days to your itinerary and squeeze in side trips to waterfalls and summit plateaus. The hike to the top of Cradle Mountain will reward you with spectacular views over Barn Bluff and Dove Lake. You can climb Tasmania’s highest peak, Mt Ossa. Or hike to The Acropolis for views over spectacular dolerite needles. If you really want to up the ante, try tackling this trail in winter. Not only can you walk it in the reverse direction at this time (hikers must walk from north to south between 1 October and 31 May), but it’s also free. Alternatively, sign up for a guided tour with Cradle Mountain Huts and be spoilt by toasty accommodation, firstclass meals and drying rooms for your sodden gear.

Walk along the powderfine sands stretching along Tasmania’s north-eastern frontier and you’ll wonder what it must be like to live here and have these beaches to yourself. Why we don’t see and hear more about the stretch of coast from Musselroe Point to Binalong Bay, near St Helens, is a mystery. If it was in Queensland, photographs of its sun-kissed beaches would be plastered all over billboards and magazines. Best of all, there are oodles of free campsites. Most of the hike is on sand – some firm, some soft – and that makes it hard going at times. Start at Stumpys Bay and head south to the pink granite lighthouse at Eddystone Point.

Continue to Purdon Bay, where surfers chase peaky waves, then finish at a headland called The Gardens. Aromatic kunzea flowers perfume inland detours as you weave between peppermint gums and sheoaks. Keep an eye out for Bennetts wallabies, endemic Forester kangaroos and yellow-tailed black cockatoos.

Park outside the Freycinet Visitor Centre, where the track zigzags up to a saddle connecting Mounts Amos and Mayson – two-fifths of the Hazards Range you’ll be crossing. A short sidetrack leads to a lookout offering postcard-perfect views over Wineglass Bay. Push on and you’ll descend through shady yellow-gum trees to the bay. Dip your toes in some of the clearest ocean water imaginable before crossing the narrow isthmus to Hazard’s Beach. Here, you’ll find evidence of Aboriginal shell middens in the dunes. That’s one-third of the threeday, 30km Freycinet Peninsula Circuit that bears remarkable similarities to Victoria’s Wilson’s Promontory.

You could be forgiven for thinking you’d reached world’s end as the southern hemisphere’s highest sea cliffs plunge underfoot. Despite some $25 million spent readying the new kid on the block for its December 2015 opening, the Three Capes Track is an anomaly. So far the track only connects two capes – Pillar and Hauy – and it may remain that way unless fresh funds surface to develop the track to the third cape, Raoul. An hour-long scenic cruise across water from Port Arthur deposits you at Denman’s Cove. From this point, you’ll hike along velvety paths. Feel the forces of nature as you skirt Tornado Ridge and traverse Hurricane Heath before standing at the edge of the abyss at Cape Pillar. Then it’s on to Cape Hauy, where rock climbers scale a slender dolerite column known as the Totem Pole, before finishing in Fortescue Bay – surely one of the country’s finest beaches.

conditions had become so unsanitary an entire street was demolished and, in 1905, Sydney’s Lord Mayor declared the area “deplorable”. By 1911 the brewery covered 2.5ha, and its tall, imposing doors stayed open for business until 2005. “Chippendale was an actual desert, that’s the only way to describe it,” declares gallerist Nicky Ginsberg over a cup of peppermint tea in Chippendale’s chic Glider KS Café. “The streets were so quiet you could hear a pin drop.” Chippendale’s crime rates had dropped by the ’80s, but in 2006, when Nicky found an old church for sale, it was still the kind of place

The streets were so quiet you could hear a pin drop taxi drivers avoided. Nicky fell in love with the church and, despite her friends’ opinions that she must be mad, snapped it

e’ll be honest: Chippendale hasn’t always been the kind of place you’d like to visit. Less a suburb than a set of laneways, squeezed between more important bits of Sydney (Chinatown, Surry Hills, Broadway and Sydney’s Central Station), it was for many decades, the kind of place you wouldn’t walk through at night. But this isn’t another story about a suburb that found its groove, it’s the tale of a gallerist, a property developer and a philanthropist, who converged on the same 700 sq m of Sydney at the same time and had the same idea: to turn it into a world-class destination. Today’s headlines talk about Chippendale as a global success story, attracting talent on a scale that has everyone from architectural digests to museum curators talking. But how could so much happen in just 10 short years? Chippendale’s fall from grace began in 1835, when Tooth and Co. built an enormous brewery amid the suburb’s many factories. The unfortunate addition attracted unsavoury types, while the smoke, fumes and overflowing sewage helped Chippendale earn its nickname, “Eau de Cologne Valley”. By 1870,

Arty architecture By 2009, the site became known as Central Park, and included several boundary-pushing creations: a sustainable skyscraper, covered in vines, by acclaimed landscape artist Patrick

108-115_EXPLORE_CHIPPENDALE.indd 112

The Central Park development with vertical ladnscaping by Patrick Blanc. BELOW: Barista at Glider café.

Dr Chau Chak Wing building (aka the Brown Paper Bag building), was unveiled last year Blanc (it’s the world’s tallest vertical garden), a series of outdoor sculptures set in a beautiful lawn and garden (including Turpin and Crawford’s two-storey wind sculpture, The Halo), a shopping centre filled with uber-cool stores such as Japanese two-dollar shop Daiso, and Sydney’s coolest new boutique hotel, The Old Clare.

Meanwhile, worldfamous architect Frank Gehry agreed to design a building at the University of Technology Sydney across the road. One of Sydney’s most breathtaking odes to architecture, the headline-grabbing Dr Chau Chak Wing building (aka the Brown Paper Bag building), was unveiled last year.

So many things happened here so quickly, that when local Emilya Colliver returned from working in Europe, where she’d been building her career as a gallerist with the likes of the British Museum and Lisson Gallery in London, she barely recognised the area. “Walking the streets here is like walking through an outdoor gallery,” she says. She’s not wrong: thanks largely to Nicky’s efforts, there are now 24 galleries in the suburb and insanely beautiful buildings such as Judith Neilson’s Guggenheimesque private residence, inspired by the work of Spanish sculptor Eduardo Chillida, and heritagelisted Strickland House, the grand, 1914 building that served as Sydney’s first public housing.

church into a successful gallery, the property needed to become part of a gallery precinct. Nicky, in other words, would need to convince other galleries to join her. Here’s where things get weird. Nicky had barely set about her task when billionaire philanthropist and art collector Judith Neilson decided she wanted to open a gallery here too and snapped up a building around the corner. Today, Judith’s White Rabbit Gallery houses the world’s largest collection of contemporary Chinese art outside the Republic. White Rabbit is a fourlevel, billion-dollar wonderland of political pop art and gigantic sculptures, where you can stroll in, take a crazycool guided tour by an educated staff member, and stroll out again without paying a cent. That’s right, entry is free. There must have been something in the water in 2006. Down the road at the brewery site, about-tobe property developer Dr Stanley Quek was struck with the idea of turning the collection of heritage buildings into a miniature arts precinct.

If you are joining Emilya on a day trip, you’ll also need your taste buds. Chippendale is home to so many award-winning eateries that Culture Scout itineraries change regularly. You could find yourself enjoying hot, crusty quiche from award-winning cafébakery Brickfields, piquant dumplings from the hidden laneway of hawker-style street food stalls, Spice Alley, or a sweet treat at Koi, the imaginative dessert bar by MasterChef star Reynold Poernomo. Wander in here and you’ll find phantasmagoric creations (think green, jelly-like globes encircled in milk chocolate, and Nutellaflavoured cakes splattered in edible, glittery nuts) in a space that’s half bakery, half florist. “You have go to Ester, too,” Emilya says. Here you can sit down to an award-winning feed for two, knock back a couple of wines each, and leave for $80 a person. Or

108-115_EXPLORE_CHIPPENDALE.indd 114

head a couple of blocks over to Automata, the restaurant of an ex-Noma chef, which serves up a five-course degustation with gourmet credibility for a very reasonable $88. Chippendale has become a premier food district, without the outlandish price tags.

It’s amazing that it all happened the way it did “It’s amazing that it all happened the way it did,” Nicky says. “A combination of luck, synchronicity of thought and hard work.” We reckon a whole lot of elbow grease, and a touch of magic had something to do with it too.

Art spaces worth visiting Emilya Colliver reveals Culture Scout’s top picks WELLINGTON STREET PROJECTS “This is an artist-run space, which means it’s not always open. But the art is really fresh and raw, with some really daring works. It’s just behind White Rabbit, where the frangipani tree is.” wellingtonstprojects.com FREDAS “This is a neighbourhood bar, not a gallery, but once a month they do a crazy light installation with sound and video – sort of like a miniature Vivid, crossed with an art bar. It’s also a fantastic spot for a drink.” facebook.com/fredas. sydney WHITE RABBIT “You just have to go. Start at the top of the elevator and ask for Phyllis at the amazing library – she’s Judith’s sister, and will look after you.” whiterabbitcollection.org

Hobart’s MONA, too. Emilya loved the area so much that, despite a flourishing art business, she decided to set up local walking tours. “Culture Scouts offers walking tours with a difference,” she says. “The area’s interiors, design, architecture and paintings are really quite special. It was important to include those aspects in our tours, not just the obvious stuff.”

Taumarunui in the heart of the King Country

Auckland

in the middle of everywhere! If you are exploring New Zealand and want to experience Ruapehu District and Gisborne its authentic heartland you need to find your way to Taumarunui Taupo Taumarunui in the central North Island in an area known as the ‘King Country’. The name ‘King Country’ dates from New Plymouth National Park the land wars in the 1860’s when the Maori King Tawhiao Ohakune evidently threw his top hat down on a map of the central Waiouru Napier North Island and proclaimed the region under the hat as being under Maori sovereignty with all pakeha (white Whanganui people) under threat of death if they came into the area. Today a large portrait sign of King Tawhiao welcomes travellers to Taumarunui’s northern entrance.

The Forgotten World Highway (also known as State Highway 43) is a memorable driving journey. Built on 19th century bridle paths, the highway connects Taumarunui to Stratford. The route passes through four mountain saddles, an eerie one-way tunnel and an amazing river gorge.

ecalling the destruction wrought by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the prospect of holidaying in the shadow of one of the world’s most active volcanoes may seem questionable. But this isn’t Naples and the year isn’t 17AD. It’s modern-day New Zealand where smoking craters, steaming mud pools and gushing geysers keep seismologists (earthquake experts) on their toes and give folks something to talk about on a daily basis. For most Kiwis – me included – the country’s crazy volcanic activity is more a source of wonder than fear. Most of the hot stuff seeping and spurting out through the earth’s crust lines, along what is known as the Taupo Volcanic Zone, spread roughly between White Island/ Whakaari – a steaming sulphur pot off the Bay of Plenty coast – through to Tongariro National Park, a superstrange volcanic landscape in the heart of the North Island. The eggysmelling tourist town of Rotorua (affectionately known as ‘Sulpher Town’) lies in between. Rotorua is deservedly popular for its combination of vibrant Maori culture and lively geothermal parks such as Te Puia and Wai-o-Tapu, but their wafting steam, weird silica terraces and colourful cascades are mere frippery when compared to the mighty firepower on show in Tongariro National Park. Lying to the south of Lake Taupo – itself an ancient caldera now filled to the brim – this is New Zealand’s oldest national park, awarded dual UNESCO World Heritage status for its outstanding natural features and cultural significance. The skyline of Tongariro is dominated by three active volcanoes, Mount

116-121_EXPLORE_RUAPEHU.indd 118

the country’s crazy volcanic activity is more a source of wonder than fear Ruapehu (the North Island’s highest mountain at 2797m), Mount Ngauruhoe (2291m) and Mount Tongariro (1978m), which last erupted in 2012. Such important facts remained lost on me all those years I drove across the so-called Central Plateau, on the stretch of State Highway 1 aptly named Desert Road. What has always been impossible to ignore, however, is the magnetic pull of the massive volcanic forms standing foreboding above the rocky, tussock-fluffed plateau. My first visits to the park were work social-club ski trips in my early 20s, thwarted – as I recall – by dodgy weather, hangovers, and an inability to actually ski. Returning after many years overseas having developed a keen interest in stuff like rocks, trees and critters – a direct and unexpected effect of becoming a travel writer – Tongariro National Park suddenly looked like a place I should get to know with my equally curious husband in tow.

Since then we’ve returned for several ski trips at Ruapehu’s twin fields, Whakapapa and Turoa. Combined, they are New Zealand’s largest ski area, and with a major new chairlift whirring into life by next winter there’s even more reason to go. But snow sports, I have discovered, are just the tip of the iceberg. One of New Zealand’s nine great walks, the three- to fourday, intermediate level Tongariro Northern Circuit, circumnavigates Mount Ngauruhoe, taking in a sizable stretch of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing – regularly touted as one of New Zealand’s finest daywalks. Both trails boast a wide array of eerie landforms such as moonlike craters, fumeroles and the surreal Emerald Lakes. A tough climb up to the crater rim of Ngauruhoe – the mountain that starred as Mount Doom in The Lord of the Rings – is topped by a viewpoint that is nothing short of mind-blowing. There are many other hikes up, down and around the mountains, including a guided hike to Ruapehu’s crater lake that takes a welcome shortcut, via the Whakapapa chairlifts, to an altitude of 2020m where New Zealand’s highest café clings to a rocky ridge. When we attempted the hike this autumn, the groovy, glass-fronted café proved a neat place to hang out after our climb was cut short by creeping cloud cover. Tongariro’s steaming vents and craters are just part of the picture, with otherworldly oddities revealed throughout the national park. As well as ancient lava flows, alpine herb fields and dazzling waterfalls, there are pockets of forest still regenerating from eruptions past. Ohakune’s Old Coach Road, on Ruapehu’s southern slopes, is another great place to spy a

range of trees, ferns and other plants. Amid various birdlife is the beautiful kereru, Aotearoa’s native wood pigeon, and its beady-eyed falcon, the karearea. The overgrown bridleway was rediscovered after nearly 100 years, and is now a 15-kilometre cycling and walking trail featuring cobblestones and photogenic railway viaducts. It’s now one of New Zealand’s best halfday mountain bike adventures for riders of medium ability, and can also be walked, one way, in about five hours. The Coach Road forms part of the epic, 217-kilometre Mountains to Sea Cycle Trail, one of 23 Great Rides within the New Zealand Cycle Trail network. Most of it is best suited to intermediate-grade riders, and not – I can attest – a frivolous fun-fest in the wet. It is, however, an opportunity to explore a remote stretch of the mystical Whanganui River, with the bonus of a jet boat ride or kayaking adventure for the eager (October-April only). Watery fun in the area is not restricted to the Whanganui River. On our last trip we stopped

off at Mangaweka Adventure Company, around halfway between Palmerston North and Tongariro National Park. As well as offering tranquil camping and cabin accommodation on the banks of the Rangitikei River, they run leisurely rafting and kayaking trips through the impressive, clay gorge. At Tongariro we went stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) on Lake Otamangakau, 20 minutes’ drive from National Park Village. At 615m above sea level, this is the highest SUP tour in Australasia. Probably the coldest, too, if you were unfortunate enough to fall in. Paddling out onto the tranquil lake in the early morning was a nigh-on spiritual experience, enhanced by a surreal mist lifting to reveal Mount Tongariro from a perspective I’d never seen before. There are many sides to this magical national park if you know where to look. visitruapehu.com Sarah Bennett travelled to Tongariro National Park with the assistance of Visit Ruapehu and Destination Manawatu

PALMERSTON NORTH Surrounded by rolling farmland in the Manawatu region of the lower North Island, Palmerston North (population 80,000) is a busy rural and university town. An expanding airport and easy access to State Highway 1 – New Zealand’s primary road route – makes it a convenient gateway not only to Tongariro National Park but also other neighbouring regions such as Taranaki, Hawke’s Bay, the Wairarapa, and Wellington just two hours’ drive south. At the heart of the city is a pretty town square, surrounded by a shopping precinct liberally sprinkled with cafés and restaurants. The George Street area is particularly vibrant with a touch of the arty and alternative. Nearby is Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History, a modern museum with a satisfying combination that also incorporates the New Zealand Rugby Museum. Just 10 minutes’ drive from the city centre is the entrance to Te Apiti, also known as Manawatu Gorge, where a snaking highway offers access to bush walks and the highly recommended Bridge Café.

elia and Luke. It could be the name of a clothing boutique. Or a new café in Melbourne’s Collingwood, where we meet. But it’s really the names of a comedic duo who went to extremes to make sure they got along before writing and filming the new ABC comedy Rosehaven. Set in Tasmania, near where Luke McGregor grew up, Rosehaven revolves around a smalltown real estate agency. Research was simple. “Celia and I went to work with mum and dad for 10 days,” says Luke. Yes, his folks are Tasmanian real estate agents. “We pretended to be real estate agents,” Celia says. “That was before we started the writing process; to see how we would get along for an extended period of time. So I lived with his parents for 10 days.” “We did everything together,” Luke says.

122-125_EXPLORE_INTERVIEWFinal.indd 122

“We lived together, stayed in the same spot together without a break, got drunk together – everything we could do to try to test the relationship.” And now they’re married, he jokes. Celia looks at Luke: “Can you get an opposite conjoined twin operation?” she asks. “Yes,” replies Luke. “Detachable for emergencies though,” Celia says. As well as being two of Australia’s most in-demand stand-up comics, Luke and Celia have become fixtures on our airwaves. Luke Warm Sex, Luke’s frankly honest comedy documentary, was a hit for ABC earlier this year, while Celia has walked the line between comedy and drama with starring roles in shows including Offspring and The Beautiful Lie. They started “riffing” about writing something while working on another ABC comedy, Utopia. “It was just us hanging out

The mainland could have floated away and you’d have no idea. The rest of the world doesn’t exist off set and talking a lot of rubbish,” Celia says. “And finding out we had the same sense of humour,” adds Luke. Luke’s Rosehaven character is a little bit like him. “It’s kind of me if I didn’t know I liked comedy, or just didn’t have comedy in my life, and wanted to take over the family business,” he explains. Is there a happy ending with the character? “He’s more proactive,” Celia says. “He’s still sh$#, don’t get me wrong. You don’t want a show about a guy who’s really good at real estate, that’s the worst show I’ve ever heard of.” After establishing they could indeed work together, they found themselves, almost mid-winter, filming in Tasmania for nine weeks. “The mainland could have floated away and you’d have no idea. The rest of the world doesn’t exist!” Celia says. Will they be allowed back onto the island?

“I was pretty adamant not to have any jokes about two heads in there, so I hope so,” Luke says. “It’s a very warm portrayal of Tassie,” Celia says. “It was never ‘he he, let’s go in and make fun of them and never go back’,” she says. “Yeah, we’re probably the two biggest idiots in the show,” Luke says. “And it showcases how beautiful it is,” Celia says. “If anything, it’s an advertisement for Tassie. They might be mad at us for having (insert funny voice) ‘too many tourists’ after the show.” Celia’s own Tassie sightseeing experiences didn’t go so well. “I went up to Mount Wellington once. I got out of the car and it was so cold. So I saw nothing. I could have just put my face in the freezer and stayed home.” With two comedians running the show, you’d expect shenanigans on set, but one of their more unusual moments involves a local. “On our first day of a test shot, this guy came out of his house, got in his car and started doing burn-outs. Like, a metre away from us. And we had to wait for all the smoke to clear,” says Luke says. “What I thought was total rock star was that he didn’t even look at us. And then went straight back into his house,” Celia

says. “Very business-like,” Luke agrees. Luke admits that filming probably annoyed some locals. “If you’re filming inside, you’ll see cars in the reflection of the windows, so you have to stop traffic because the town’s supposed to be a quiet town. But to the people of New Norfolk [where parts of Rosehaven was filmed], it just looks like a guy with a stop sign and empty streets, and no reason to stop. If we do it again, I think we should get some fake road workers!” Post filming and back in Melbourne, where they both live, the duo found

They might be mad at us for having (insert funny voice) ‘too many tourists’ after the show themselves missing each other. “We both didn’t text each other,” says Celia. “It was like: I want to know what he’s doing... but also I should probably leave him alone.” They both jumped back into Melbourne’s standup scene. “We didn’t do

a gig for two and a half months and we felt rusty,” says Celia. “I had to get up as soon as possible. And your mind goes: ‘oh, I’ve forgotten how to do this!” It was a rude shock for Celia. “So many hipsters!” she says. “I’d forgotten about that from being in Tassie, as well!” Rosehaven airs on ABC TV on Wednesday nights at 9pm from 12 October.

#1 NEWCASTLE

Brand new day IN inner-city Newcastle’s Cooks Hill, doctors, architects, and the Crossfit crew mingle with mums with prams and a tattooed hipster walking his labradoodle. At Welsh Black, baristas emblazoned with tattoos and sporting copious facial hair serve single origin brews. The streets are lined with fig trees, historic terrace houses, and art galleries. This is Newcastle, my city; a city on the brink of change, best known for its biggest exports, Silverchair, Jennifer Hawkins, Ben Lexcen and coal. First timers, or those who haven’t visited Australia’s second-oldest city in a while, often marvel at the enviable lifestyle Novocastrians enjoy. You can take your pick of magnificent beaches strung along the coastline from the city to Merewether (and easily get a carpark). You can head out for a surf before work, get a decent coffee (try the beachside Blue

Door kiosk), or a handcrafted local beer at Grain Store, and dine at Reserve Wine Bar on a menu created by Cory Campbell, former head chef of Melbourne’s Vue de Monde. Cory, who plans to open his own restaurant, is typical of the city’s changing face, as Novocastrians return to roost putting newfound talents into their own businesses. Over on Merewether’s main drag, Hal Gibbs and Kristy Mujana are also representative of the new guard, having moved back from Sydney to open Esther C, a hip new café churning out ‘50s and ‘60s grooves along with superb coffee.

126-133_EXPLORE_NSWNORTHCOAST.indd 128

been unveiled at Civic Square. Cranes dot the skyline as new developments reach for the sky and real estate prices head north with them. In Newcastle’s longneglected west end, Silverchair bass player Chris Joannou’s café, restaurant and bar, The Edwards, has transformed the dead-end Parry Street. At the other end of the strip, Parry Street Garage marries the city’s industrial past with a hip warehouse playground of food and wine. To fully appreciate Newcastle’s coastal glory, start at the new Anzac Memorial Walk – the jewel in Newcastle’s Bathers Way – its 450-metre clifftop span affording 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and out to the Hunter Valley. From there take a walk along the

break wall, marvelling at the imposing lighthouse at Nobbys Headland and huge container ships guided into port by the fleet of hard-working tug boats. It’s not uncommon to spot dolphins, or the odd seal sunbaking on the rocks. Take a dip at the historic Newcastle Baths, lunch at Restaurant Mason, with its white linen tablecloths flapping in the breeze, then take a class at Yoga Loft with its 180-degree views of the coastline. As the sun sets enjoy alfresco sundowners at the Merewether Surfhouse, flanked by multimillion dollar real estate, as surfers catch the last wave of the day. Or head to MoneyPenny, a contemporary cocktail bar on the harbourfront at Honeysuckle. It’s Newcastle, but not as you know it.

#2 PORT STEPHENS

A swim on the wild side PAUL EWART EXPLORES PORT STEPHENS WITH A PRISTINE bay twice the size of Sydney Harbour, the largest sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere and a world record number of humpback whale sightings, Port Stephens national park-flanked beaches are a coastal New South Wales gem. Kickstart your adventure by checking into boutique, self-contained apartments, Marty’s at Little Beach. Nestled between two of the town’s prettiest beaches – Shoal Bay Beach and Little Beach – this is the perfect jumping-off point to explore.

COASTAL PLAYGROUND 130

First timers should veer south to Stockton Bight Sand Dunes – the largest mobile sand system in the Southern Hemisphere and the biggest sand dunes in Australia. A giant sandpit, here kids young and old alike get their adrenaline pumping either dune-bashing in a 4WD, quad biking or riding sand boards down towering dunes more than 40 metres high. From the sand to the surf, Port Stephens is a bona fide aquatic playground. Yes, there’s diving, swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding, but more unique to the area is its abundance of marine life. From late May to November, the region is one of the best places to spot whales during the annual migration when more than 11,000 humpbacks swim by. And with more than 140 bottlenose dolphins calling Port Stephens home, it’s little wonder that it has earned a reputation as the dolphin capital of Australia. While there’s an armada of tourist sightseeing vessels all trading on the local mammal population, for something truly unique try swimming with dolphins in the wild. Dolphin

Views from the Tomaree Head summit. INSET: Up close and personal with Dolphin Swim Australia.

Swim Australia has the first - and only - permit of its kind issued in NSW, which allows visitors to swim with dolphins side-by-side in their natural habitat.

LAND LUBBERS If you’re more at home on land, you can still get up close and personal with some giants of the ocean at Irukandji Shark & Ray Encounters. Year-round, guests can don a wetsuit and enter the water to feed and handle giant stingrays and huge tawny nurse sharks. Afterwards, for one of the best views in town, make the steep climb from Shoal Bay to the Tomaree Headland in Tomaree National Park. Part of an extinct volcano, the summit offers panoramic vistas of the Port Stephens coastline and is a rewarding hike.

After your exertions, reward yourself with a locally produced craft beer at Murray’s Brewery before making your way to the area’s most renowned – and most perfectly situated – restaurant, Little Beach Boathouse. This restored boathouse offers picturepostcard water views and a delicious modern Australian menu featuring plenty of the renowned local seafood.

#3 HUNTER VALLEY

A treasure trove WORDS KRYSIA BONKOWSKI

Nestled at the base of the undulating Brokenback Ranges, the Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s most iconic wine regions. With the area’s sprawl of vines and farms, wining and dining is the order of the day.

ON THE GRAPEVINE For an overview of the Hunter, a sunrise hot air balloon ride (try balloonaloft.com) will give you a superb vantage point over a valley rich in blockbuster vineyards and heritage wineries. In the country’s oldest wine region, Tyrrell’s Wines is one of the oldest vineyards.

At the cellar door on a balding hill in Pokolbin, you can walk between century-old oak vats. On the wide balcony of Keith Tulloch’s chic cellar door, sip on shiraz and semillion crafted by a fourth-generation Hunter Valley winemaker. At Audrey Wilkinson, you’ll discover the valley’s finest views at a cellar door overlooking vines tended by the Wilkinsons since 1866. Alongside the big names, the Hunter has its share of dynamic smaller makers. After a winemaking career that made him a Hunter Valley legend, Andrew Thomas established Thomas Wines cellar door last year to showcase his award-sweeping wines. Usher Tinkler has branched out from his family’s historic winery with Usher Tinkler Wines, producing single-vineyard vintages that suggest winemaking runs in the blood. Just next door in a restored schoolhouse, Gundog Estate sells its highly regarded wines. For an education in boutique local vineyards, drop past the Small Winemakers Centre in Pokolbin.

FIT FOR A FEAST Where there’s good wine,

126-133_EXPLORE_NSWNORTHCOAST.indd 132

there’s food to match. From chocolate and cheese to smoked meats and olives, the Hunter Valley produces the perfect picnic basket. Explore the cellar doors on two wheels, stocked up with a moveable smorgasbord of soft-rind cheese from Binnorie Dairy, terrine from Lovedale Smokehouse and ginger-spiked dark chocolate from Cocoa Nib. If you’d rather a white tablecloth with your lunch, the Hunter Valley has you covered. See where the local fine-dining scene started at Bistro Molines, the French provincial restaurant from Sally and Robert Molines. Their former protegee Lisa Margan and her husband Andrew, who was trained by the late Murray Tyrrell, have forged their own path at Margan. Their refined seasonal menu is sourced nearly entirely

from their working farm and kitchen garden, and Andrew Margan has proven himself a pioneering local winemaker. The intimate EXP. restaurant at Oakvale Wines is headed up by young local chef Frank Fawkner, who trained at Muse Restaurant (a Hunter Valley favourite with two Chef’s Hats). Frank’s exciting cooking suggests the Hunter Valley’s future is in very safe hands.

Dreams2live4 Dream Makers are dedicated to helping patients identify and fulfil their dreams. The charity began the search for their next Dream Maker after being awarded a $30,000 Jetstar Flying Start grant, which includes $15,000 in cash and $15,000 worth of Jetstar travel. Along with finding and

training their next Dream Maker, the $15,000 cash will go towards fulfilling the dreams of cancer sufferers, while the flights will be put towards flying patients across the Jetstar network to experience their dreams. The flights will also assist the charity to help more people around the country, flying Dreams2live4 members to hospitals to meet with new Dreamers. Dreams2Live4 Chief Executive Officer Louise Mahoney runs the charity, which was initially set up by her sister Annie Robinson in 2008. “This year alone, we will work with more than

Thanks to the Jetstar Flying Start grant, we will now be able to reach more patients and their families, giving them something to strive, hope and live for.

‘Fur love’

not money JESS ZELTNER and Courtney Meyer are not your stereotypical crazy cat ladies. As co-founders of Sydney’s Super Furry Festival in Surry Hils, they have turned raising funds for animal rescue shelters and advocating animal adoption into a joyful, if not slightly madcap, event. Spurred on by campaigns alerting the public to animal cruelty, and with a passion to reduce the tens of thousands of discarded pets euthanised each year, their ‘festival of fur’ is a market-style day that connects thousands of Sydneysiders with animals from 12 rescue shelters. Some of the activities include ‘Doga’ (dog yoga), Dogs on the Catwalk, a kitty or bunny cuddle tent and a treasure hunt for

pooch-lovers and their furry friends. “We wanted to make it a little bit more engaging, entertaining, interactive and more creative. We’re trying to create a joyous, positive space,” Jess says. If you have a love of lounging Labradors, join Kooks in supporting the festival in Sydney on 22 October. For more information visit superfurryfestival. com.au

hinh’s community, in Vietnam’s Quang Nam province, is just one of many to have benefited from World Vision’s StarKidssupported anti-trafficking initiative. Like many teens, Thinh loved computer gaming. But his favourite pastime took a tragic turn. “I used to spend some breakfast money … to frequent the computer game shops,” he recalls. One weekend a young man befriended Thinh there and offered him work delivering fish, promising he’d earn enough “to play games all day”.

The lure of quick money – and the thought of seeing the ocean for the first time – was irresistible. Later that afternoon, Thinh was at the beach. Alone. Broke. His new “friend” was gone. Another man approached, offering a night’s work fishing. Thinh agreed, thinking he’d take the bus home the next morning. But it was a trap and Thinh toiled away on that boat for four long months. “The traffickers sold me to a fishing group,” he says bitterly. Thinh managed to escape and later resumed his schooling. He also joined a youth club through World Vision’s End Trafficking in Persons

YOUR FLIGHT I TIPS & FACTS

BAGGAGE & CARGO

The sky is full of planes busy whisking us to amazing places, with holds full of our precious luggage, and sustaining a billion dollar cargo industry

DON’T FORGET TO TAG YOUR BAG

Flying freight

150

Planes were transporting cargo long before they took on passengers. The first commercial freight flight took place in 1910, when Phil O. Parmalee transported two bolts of silk across Ohio. Since then, airfreight has become a booming business; last year revenue peaked at $67 billion with close to $6 trillion worth of goods transported around the globe, accounting for 35 per cent of all international trade.

MEL SYD JS 912

It wasn’t until the 1920s that the volume of passengers made destination tags on passenger’s suitcases essential. Airline tags had to be able to cope with extreme changes in heat and moisture, be resistant to nicks and tears, and be easy to remove when the passenger arrived at their destination. Today’s bag tags were in common use by mid-1990, with the simple yet innovative sticky lopped design helping reduce the number of bags lost in transit.

DID you KNOW?

WATCH

YOUR

WEIGHT Baggage allowances first started in 1938 when limitations were placed on bags travelling domestically and internationally. Luggage weight was capped at around 20kg per passenger. As planes design improved and aircraft grew in size, so too did baggage allowances. On a domestic Jetstar flight, you can carry up to 40kg of checked luggage and 7kg carry-on luggage.

Over 2 million pets are transported by air in the US every year? And Qantas estimates 160 pets are transported per day in Australia.

REINVENTING

THE WHEEL

In 1987 the first carry-on wheeled suitcase appeared on the market. Such was its immediate popularity that airports changed their security procedures and planes were modified to include overhead bins to accommodate the increase in wheelie bag use.

PENFOLDS WINES

JACOB’S CREEK DOUBLE BARREL

Penfolds is one of Australia’s oldest and most iconic wineries, founded in 1844. Koonunga Hill is the gateway to the Penfolds collection of wines; it is where the art of winemaking and the Penfolds journey truly begins.

Jacob’s Creek winemakers first crafted beautifully rich red wines from superior quality grapes and matured them in traditional wine barrels. Then, using our unique Double Barrel technique, they finished them in aged whisk(e)y barrels to build additional layers of complexity and an incredibly smooth finish.

SYDNEY & GOLD COAST SEMINARS TO SHOW BUSINESS OWNERS HOW TO EASILY ATTRACT NEW CLIENTS – BOTH ONLINE & OFFLINE!

If You Own Or Manage A Business & Want to Know How to Attract An Avalanche of New Clients, Don’t Miss This Event!

Australia’s Leading Marketing Expert, John Dwyer, Reveals His PROVEN ClientAttraction Marketing System - So You Can Swipe & Use to Skyrocket Your Sales!

Dwyer’s recent HUGE “wow factor” was creating a Jerry Seinfeld marketing campaign!

EVEN JERRY SEINFELD TRUSTED HIS BRAND TO JOHN

TICKETS ARE NORMALLY $497

John Dwyer is an “in-demand” business marketing coach and speaker, who has an extraordinary record of massively increasing sales for businesses. He is a much sought-after keynote speaker for industry and company conventions. His business is aptly called The Institute Of Wow and he holds world records for the avalanche sales increases he has delivered to clients like Channel 9 (world ratings record), KFC, Madura Tea, the Greater Building Society, Parramatta Leagues, News Ltd, the NRL & countless other businesses.

AND HE’S REVEALING HIS “WOW MARKETING SYSTEM” AT THIS 1 DAY “HOW TO ATTRACT NEW CLIENTS” EVENT! • GOLD COAST – FRI 7 OCT, 2016 • GOLD COAST – FRI 28 OCT, 2016 • SYDNEY – FRI 4 NOV, 2016 • GOLD COAST – FRI 18 NOV, 2016 • SYDNEY – FRI 25 NOV, 2016

John scored a massive coup in recent years, when he coaxed Jerry Seinfeld to be spokesman for one of his clients, the Greater Building Society. The marketing campaign resulted in the building society TRIPLING its home loan market share virtually overnight. Seinfeld said Dwyer “was the cleverest marketing person he had ever worked with” – high praise indeed!

B2B & B2C Ideas – Online & Offline

The event covers both business to business and business to consumer marketing ideas online & offline. And he’ll demonstrate HOW to create a website “that SELLS!” (because most sites DON’T!). Dwyer’s clients refer to him as “The Business Whisperer” because of his track record and proven marketing system. One Sydney tourism business saw annual sales catapult from $10m to $14m with just one of his “outside the box” ideas.

but as a special offer for our magazine readers, a limited number of tickets are available for

JUST $97 PER PERSON and can be gained at

www.explodeyoursales.com.au His “system” has resulted in Doubling, Tripling & Quadrupling Sales for clients. It’s not unusual for Dwyer’s clients to experience dramatic increases in sales quickly. One of his clients selling “incontinence relief products” changed her Facebook ads to follow Dwyer’s system - and her webpage visitations exploded from 4,000 per week to 93,000 per week! A Melbourne fun park quadrupled its attendance figures within days of adopting Dwyer’s marketing formula and a holiday resort had to stop the marketing campaign due to enjoying full occupancy as a result of Dwyer’s system. And the list of success stories goes on – many of which Dwyer will showcase at his event.

NO MAN IS AN ISLAND

176

IT WAS OUR family’s first time basking in the beauty of the South Pacific and island life was agreeing with us something fierce. How we rejoiced in the tropical sun on our faces. How we revelled in the crystalline Pacific saltwater. How we screamed as we were suddenly drenched in freezing rain. Not rain as we knew it, either. For a start it was horizontal. We were accustomed to water falling out of the sky onto our heads; we were less used to having it fired into our faces as if from God’s own Super Soaker. Pew pew pew went the watery bullets, and we quickly decided that our fellow beachgoers, sprinting frantically for shelter, had the right idea. Scrambling out of the sea, we bolted for our towels and were just about to reach the sweet protective embrace of the café hut when I heard an agonised howl, like a puppy having a tooth removed. I turned and saw my daughter, Layla, frozen on the sand, wailing in pain and clutching her leg as the rain continued to buffet us both. My mind leapt to the obvious conclusion: bluebottle! Good God, my

little girl had been stung. We would need an airlift (I don’t know much about bluebottle stings). I scooped Layla up and rushed her out of the rain and through shuddering sobs, she informed us that there was no bluebottle: she’d just pulled a hamstring. Of all the problems that I had foreseen coming up on holiday, a sevenyear-old girl twanging her hammy had not really occurred to me. I had cause to regret this lack of foresight, as I carried Layla, weeping and moaning, back to the boat. And let me tell you, a seven year old only takes about four seconds to get

We were less used to having it fired into our faces as if from God’s own Super Soaker incredibly heavy. It was like hauling a particularly sad sack of potatoes across the island, as onlookers clucked their tongues in sympathy and knowledgeably muttered to each other, “Poor thing. Bluebottle sting.” I’d have corrected them but I was finding speech difficult, being on the

brink of, simultaneously, a heart attack, a hernia and a slipped disc from carrying my darling daughter. And so our island idyll was ended, though the trip continued. There would be other islands. Islands without rain. Islands without pulled hammies. But no island would give us as good a story to tell. And what are holidays for, if not to give us stories? And, obviously, back injuries. Ben Pobjie is a Melbourne -based writer and comedian, whose work appears in The Age. He recently published Error Australis, a humorous look at Australian history.
