Virginia trioli \ THE COMMUNITY DOG

T

here’s this bloke I know who quite likes dogs. He likes their company and companionship, but he likes them only in small doses. He likes to have them with him, but only sometimes. So while he certainly has the means and the circumstances to be able to have a dog fully in his life, he doesn’t want to own a dog. Instead, he borrows one. He has a colleague with a very sweet, fluffy thing who, from time to time, accompanies him to his weekend retreat, and who flies with him to his outlying properties (the dog’s weight has been recorded for the light-plane inventory) to spend a couple of days frolicking in the bush and lying by the fire. My mate gets the pleasure of his company, the dog gets an exciting change of scene and a damn good exercise and the dog’s owners get a few days off from the sometimes-tedious requirements of dog ownership. Just like taking the neighbours’ kid with you to the footy. But with fur. When I once asked my friend why he doesn’t just get a dog of his own, he answered with killing logic: “Why would I? I can just borrow one.” Hard to argue with that.

They say it takes a village to raise a child but, since talking to my friend, I have realised that there are whole communities out there involved in the care and pleasure of dog company, while sharing around the responsibility of ownership. My mother’s dog, Polly, regularly crosses town to spend time with my sister and her ageing Pomeranian: a little holiday in the ’burbs that the two seem to enjoy. And our chocolate Lab, Bunk, has a range of social scenes and alternative dwellings that make his life far more adventurous than our own. One set of close friends have always loved dogs, but their peripatetic lifestyle makes dog ownership difficult these days. So, instead, they regularly collect our dog on a Friday and take him with them to their place in the bush for the weekend. Bunk comes back muddy, happy and exhausted and we get a little break from the intense demands of a five-year-old Labrador. Another friend, who secretly craves a dog of her own but lives in an apartment above her business, borrows Bunk for a couple of days of vigorous walking in the inner-city’s beautiful parks and gardens. Bunk always returns from these jaunts looking

so sleek and healthy, and just as happy to be home. I’ve written here before about the documented effects of companion animals, particularly in the lives of the elderly, infirm and disabled. One pediatrician I know once had a dog that was allowed to accompany her on her hospital rounds: nothing made sick children happier than seeing her sweet puppy loping behind her along the corridors. What I like so much about my friend’s relationship with his borrowed dog, and other situations like it, is that it provides yet more evidence that more of us are choosing to live in a much more interconnected, community-minded way, sharing responsibilities and resources with care and affection. As our cities become more densely populated and resources become a little more scarce, as our community ages and requires more care and attention from all of us who share a neighbourhood, we are going to have to pay more attention to each other, and look after each other, and each other’s families, in ways that we haven’t before. It won’t be hard work: it’ll be fun, I promise you. There’ll be grannies, kids and dogs – and there’s very little that’s bad about that. \

PETER WILMOTH meets rising comic star Nazeem Hussain Cover Story

beyond

N

azeem Hussain is a young man at the beginning of what promises to be a strong career in comedy and he’s a great storyteller, which will help in that regard. We’ve met on a wild and woolly day in Prahran and, amid jokes about what the wind has done to his hair for a photo shoot, he tells a great story about his can-do Sri Lankan-born mother, Mumtaza, who raised Hussain and his two sisters on her own in Burwood. “Kids tease you at school,” he says. “For us it was always race-based. Kids will always pick on the most obvious difference. So I’d go home and tell my mum about what had happened. Mum would help us devise plans to reverse-tease the kid.” But the bullying continued. “In year 7, these kids were bullying me. I don’t know why I mentioned it to my mum. When I went to school these bullies were super nice to me for an entire week. I had no idea what happened. One day I was walking to the school gate and mum was standing there with a bunch of bullies from the year above me and they had bags of chocolates and lollies in their hands. So she had bribed one group of bullies to get another group of bullies off my back. She contracted a gang. She understands power.” But dealing with another group of bullies needed a different strategy. This time Mumtaza decided to bring in some muscle in the form of the Victorian premier. “My older sister was getting bullied. Mum went to the principal, who was best friends with that kid’s mum and she didn’t want to do anything about it. She said, ‘You’re probably imagining it, just get over it’. You don’t tell my mum to leave something alone. She went to the local MP’s office – Jeff Kennett – and said to reception, “Is Jeff Kennett around?’ The receptionist said, ‘Sorry he’s busy’. Mum just walked past reception, went into Jeff’s office and said: ‘Jeff, you need to come and do something about this bully at my daughter’s school’. “Fifteen minutes later my mum walked into the principal’s office with Jeff Kennett and the principal said: “Mr Kennett, I think Mrs Hussain is over-stating the issue’. Jeff said, ‘No’, and told the principal off.” At 28, Nazeem Hussain already has an impressive comedy CV. A presenter on radio Triple J, he was a regular on a Foxtel show called Balls of Steel, performing a character he created called Calvin Khan the “very foreign correspondent”. He was half of a comedy duo for Triple J sketches called Fear of a Brown Planet, which became a stage show taken across Australia, Asia and

12 The weekly review \ september 4, 2013

Britain, including to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Hussain also starred in the cult hit Salam Café on SBS. Now he’s about to go mainstream with his own 10-part weekly comedy series on SBS called Legally Brown, as well as an appearance this week on Peter Helliar’s ABC comedy It’s A Date. Legally Brown is Hussain’s biggest project. It will be, he says, a mix of stand-up, sketches and interaction with the public, plus a bit of hidden camera. “Some of the sketches are funny … in others we try to address some serious issues,” he says. His comedy is sometimes referred to as controversial or edgy. Once, while performing stand-up, he told the audience, “In Australia white people tend to be pretty paranoid about Muslims”. He then went on to relate a story about going into a shop in Moe where a staffer said, “Muslims are coming to invade Australia, al-Qaeda is coming to invade Australia, to invade Moe”. The punchline came as Hussain pointed out it was highly unlikely Moe was al-Qaeda’s next target. Still Hussain is bemused that people describe his humour as edgy. “I think people always like to go, ‘That comedian is x, that comedian is y’. With me, people will often use the words controversial or edgy, or preaching to the converted. As much as I don’t like these sorts of labels, I think it’s inevitable. “I think ‘controversial’ is an easy way to dismiss someone. It means you don’t need to engage with the issues. I think it’s very dismissive, almost patronising sometimes. Comedy is intrinsically pretty rebellious. That’s sort of the nature of it. If comedy doesn’t provoke or make you think in a certain way, or think outside of a box, it probably isn’t really doing its job.” Hussain’s parents arrived in Australia from Sri Lanka

It was probably the least refined dish we tried, and the rocky road was a little sweet for me, but I think it’s a crowd-pleaser. The light, fresh brioche dough used for his delicate doughnuts, served with a chocolate dipping sauce (again a little sweet for my taste) and verdant swirl of pandan cream, would be a winner in any weather. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au To REad moRE REviEws

challenges and allows these kids to be cared for as they should be. For me to be involved and help raise money with something I have an abundance of – like the clothes in my wardrobes – is easy.” Many women love to spend on fashion and beauty, but there’s an extra buzz when we repurpose preloved items and fit them in our own sartorial message. Nothing makes the heart beat faster than finding designer-label items for a fraction of their retail value. Give In Style is about being involved in the hunting and gathering and it allows you to buy fashion brands while giving hope to kids who need it most. It’s a win-win situation. “Preloved fashion is the perfect way to mix in with your favourite basics and go-to pieces,” Maxwell says. “The key is to make it your own and give them a new story to tell. I love a good blazer and ripped denim jeans, so rework a well-fitting pair of jeans with DIY rips and get an amazing jacket tailored to fit.” This year, pieces have been donated by Vogue editor Edwina McCann, Bassike founders Mary Lou Ryan and Deb Sams, TV personality Rebecca Judd and fashion designer Yeojin Bae. Rowe says money raised provides vital support for orphaned or abandoned children. “Educational success … can transform a young life and give them the courage to face the challenges that lie ahead,” Rowe says. “More than 160 young people have received essential educational assistance as a result of support from Give in Style. Such support paves the way for improved academic outcomes for a group of young people who are at high risk of unemployment, drug use and criminal activity.” \ jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.facebook.com/GiveInStyle » Give In Style, ground floor, 31 Izett Street, Prahran, September 6-7.

emember that week in early June when foul, freezing weather plunged everyone into despair? I don’t. By sheer luck I’d booked a break on Magnetic Island, so while Melbourne endured the depths of winter I was in a place where it’s always summer. Maggie has about 320 sunny days a year and an average maximum of 28 degrees – far better odds for a winter escape than the Gold Coast, Cairns or Bali. With direct flights from Melbourne to Townsville, summertime is never more than three hours away. The biggest surprise about the island is not that it’s so affordable, or that the cane toad races are so much fun, or that there are 25 mostly drop-dead gorgeous beaches. No, the biggest surprise is that there was hardly anyone

there. It felt like I’d stumbled on a secret paradise. I’m already planning a return visit this month. Ideally I’d follow the inspiring example of one of the island’s bus drivers, a climate refugee from Geelong, who told me he’d planned to stay on Magnetic Island only for six months. “That was seven years ago,” he said. “Nothing could convince me to move back to Australia now.” \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au » Jetstar flies from Melbourne direct to Townsville, www.jetstar.com.au/ The Sealink ferry from Townsville to Magnetic costs $32 return full-fare.

Holiday rentals are a mainstay of the Magnetic Island economy. Rent anything from a fibro shack or beachfront apartment to Lotus House, a three-bedroom tropical beacon on Horseshoe Bay Beach with sleeping for six. It’s one of the island’s poshest properties and is priced accordingly – from $5600 a week. Still, between six, that’s less than a thousand bucks each. For more rentals: bestofmagnetic.com \

Maggie’s swishest resort has 106 apartments and rooms, with another 56 under construction. Accommodation ranges from hotel studios to contemporary two- and three-bedroom apartments. The pick is 10 block; apartments there have plunge pools and are bookended by the marina and the lagoon pool. Boardwalk Restaurant & Bar offers suitably upscale dining. There’s an on-site Endota spa, too. \

Recently upgraded motel-style units offer comfortable, clean lodgings a thong’s throw from Geoffrey Bay. But the real draw of the Arcadia pub is that it’s the social hub of the island. Cane toad races on Wednesday nights, bingo Friday and Sunday and live music at weekends keep the place pumping. There are also two pools, regular market stalls and Caffe dell’Isola, an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and gelateria. \

My favourite thing to do on Magnetic Island is nothing. But if you insist on being active, the island is your oyster. The four main settlements – Picnic Bay, Nelly Bay, Arcadia and Horseshoe Bay – are linked by a regular bus service that also stops at the Bungalow Bay Koala Village, a backpacker resort where visitors can cuddle koalas and get up close to crocs. Cute. Maggie’s total population is barely more than 2000, and almost 70 per cent of the island is national park, so it is best explored on foot. Horseshoe Bay is a sweep of golden sand on the north shore offering watersports of every inclination. Beautiful Balding Bay Beach, one of Maggie’s three unofficial nude beaches, is a short, worthwhile hike over the point. Have the bus drop you off at The Forts, a two-hour return walk of gobsmacking views. This is also the starting point for a sweaty but rewarding walk to the postcard-pretty beaches of Florence, Arthur and Radical bays. Highly recommended. Geoffrey Bay is a marine reserve, popular for snorkelling and the dive site of the Moltke wreck. At the northern end of the bay, at Bremner Point, wallabies descend en masse at dusk in the hope of being fed by tourists. Great photo ops. \

LE PARADIS

eat here Fine dining’s not really Maggie’s style but you can still find plenty of good food. Locals rave about Philippe Poitou’s French fare at Le Paradis in Nelly Bay (corner Sooning Street and Mandalay Avenue). Noodies on the Beach at Horseshoe Bay serves some of the better coffee on the island and offers ripper margaritas to match its Mexican-styled menu. The Hotel Arcadia’s bistro gets some stiff competition on Wednesday and Friday nights from Nell’s Indonesian (try the chicken curry, mee goreng, gado gado) and on Friday and Saturday nights from Mi Orchid Thai. Both operate from a kiosk beside the beer garden. \ september 4, 2013 \ The weekly review 21

ore than 90 per cent of the Cathedral Ranges State Park burnt in the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. Today, most of the trees are still black and some look more like precarious charcoal sculptures ready to be blown away by the next gust of wind. That said, the scenery in the Cathedral Ranges is dramatic and quickly changing as the forest floor continues to repair itself after the fires. The scenery varies dramatically from dense fern forests full of wildflowers and uprooted trees clad with wild mushrooms, to the always muddy and sodden creek trail, to the rocky summit with an abundance of spiny bushes and sun-bleached, windswept trees. About 2½ hours north-east of Melbourne and about 15 minutes from Marysville, just off the Maroondah Highway, the Cathedral Range State Park is home to the two best day walks Victoria has on offer. Once you tackle either walk, you’ll see why this little-known, steep and rocky mountain range is widely regarded as one of the most diverse, scenic, challenging and still accessible day-walking destinations in the state. It’s a real hiker’s mountain. There are two main trails – the northern circuit and the southern circuit. The southern circuit is much more difficult and better suited to more experienced hikers. Sugarloaf Peak, the notorious Razorback Ridge and Wells Cave are all on the southern circuit. The northern circuit also has its difficult sections, but it is more forgiving and doesn’t force you to scramble up near-vertical cliff faces like its southern equivalent. In my opinion, Cathedral’s northern circuit is the perfect introduction to full-day hikes, which will challenge your fitness and your wit. In total, the 15-kilometre circuit will take at least six hours to complete with a total elevation of 840 metres. There are two preferable starting points; Cooks Mill and Neds Gully. Both are hike-in and drive-in camping grounds with rainwater tanks and toilets.

From the get-go, the track doesn’t beat around the bush (pardon the pun). From Cooks Mill car park, enjoy the short descent to Jawbone Creek before the long and relentless climb up Cathedral’s eastern slope. Three-quarters of the way up is The Farmyard hike-in pause point/camp spot. This small plateau, with a well-used fire pit, is the overnight stop of choice for people walking both circuits in two days. When the bush finally opens up and you step out onto the seven-kilometre long Cathedral Ridge, you learn quickly to keep your footing. This is definitely the highlight of the hike as some sections feel as narrow as a metre wide with almost sheer drops on either side. The traverse, almost a kilometre above sea level, involves some pretty athletic boulder hopping and the orange guiding pointers, which by now will be familiar, are much less conspicuous up here, so keep a sharp eye out and do not rush it. Apart from staying on the track, it’s also worth slowing the pace to appreciate the constant

jaw-dropping view of Lake Mountain, Sugarloaf Peak and the farmlands on either side. As you pass Cathedral Peak and eventually branch off from the ridge, take the time to visit Little Cathedral Peak. It involves another steep climb, but it is arguably the best view on the entire walk. Descending back on the eastern slope to Neds Gully, a dense rainforest setting on soft, mossy terrain is a welcome relief for the ankles and knees after a couple of hours navigating the uneven boulders of the ridge. The remainder of the hike is a leisurely stroll along the Little River Track from Neds Gully back to your car. But it is here where the most dramatic scenery change takes place – hectares of tree logging fields rotting under the façade of Jawbone Peak. Admittedly, it is not what you’d expect at the end of what is otherwise a very untouched and organic trek, and it just highlights how dramatic and contrasting the landscapes are here. \ emorton@theweeklyreview.com.au

paradise found Getaway \ Your own slice of Vanuatu luxury is just four hours away

hen John Salter first visited Vanuatu he was amused to see the driver, who ferried him around the island, waving to every person he passed. And every person smiled and returned his wave. “I didn’t understand how he could possibly know everyone,” says Salter laughing. “But after that first trip I returned to Vanuatu and every time I drove or walked around the island, people waved and smiled at me, too. I then realised that’s typical of the friendliness of Vanuatu. It’s twice been chosen by Lonely Planet as the ‘happiest place on earth’ and it’s completely different to any other place I’ve visited in the world.” Since his first trip to the South Pacific paradise five years ago, Salter has developed a luxurious, private eight-villa estate – the Valé Valé resort. Only a 10-minute drive from the capital, Port Vila, the estate is nestled in a bay fringed with white sandy beaches. Salter is a former principal of an accountancy firm and experienced financial planner with a lengthy involvement in successful property development in Australia. Using that experience, he has created this resort of one- and two-bedroom villas in Vanuatu. They are an idyllic escape for anyone wishing to enjoy a beachside break for two to four weeks a year, and to benefit from a respectable return on their investment for the remainder of the year. Each villa is only five metres from the water’s edge and each freestanding property has a private terrace with plunge pool and is surrounded by luscious palms, frangipanis and wild orchids. Each villa has a separate title and a wall secures the rear of the estate while the villas front the beach. They are fitted out with quality timber furnishings, bamboo-woven, high-pitched ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors, air-conditioning in each bedroom and ceiling fans throughout. One-bedroom properties are $349,000 and two-bedroom villas are $389,000.

“Each villa has been beautifully furnished by a Melbourne-based interior designer and the villas were designed by architect Pierre du Toit,” says Salter. “They are furnished down to teaspoons and a DVD – you can simply arrive with hand luggage. When you step inside these villas and onto the beach from your terrace, you really do know you are somewhere else.” King-sized beds, quality linens, a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven and four-burner stove, flat-screen TV and iPod dock, daily maid service, Australian satellite TV channels, ADSL wireless broadband internet and mobile phone coverage are standard features. The Valé Valé resort is managed and maintained year round, with owners contributing to a body corporate to cover reasonable maintenance and management costs. Full-time staff maintain the properties and grounds, and prepare the villas for guests. Since the resort opened 12 months ago, Salter says the occupancy rate is ahead of projections and comments on the respected Trip Advisor website from visitors to the resort commend the friendly and efficient staff, the beautiful design of the villas, the high-quality

accommodation and the peaceful setting. Salter says as the villas are being sold as a going concern and are already being leased; this enables buyers to save the local 12.5 per cent VAT charge usually payable on purchase. “The government is very welcoming to foreign investors – in fact, foreign investment is encouraged,” says Salter. “I see these villas as an investment for people who have a family home, a share portfolio and some money in super. A villa would be a place where they can get away and, when they’re not in residence, they can enjoy good cash flow from their property.” The villas were built in accordance with Australian and New Zealand standards and all major work, “you such as electrical and plumbing work, was can do as carried out by ex-pat Australians and New much or as Zealanders. American and New Zealand little as construction workers built the villas and they are comprehensively insured with QBE as part of you want” the body corporate costs. The island paradise is accessible, too. It’s only a four-hour flight from Melbourne with Air Vanuatu – a Qantas partner airline – and Virgin Australia flying direct. “The airport is small, so within 10 minutes you are through Customs and Immigration and a short time after that you can be in your villa,” says Salter. “Once there you can do as much or as little as you want. We can organise a game of golf, canoe trips to the turtle sanctuary in the bay, bush walks or visits to the local kava bars. There are some fantastic snorkelling sites and game fishing is also very big … or you can simply sit on the terrace, relax and enjoy the view.” \

EAST MELBOURNE HOUSE

Cue to fly

30 The weekly review \ september 4, 2013

“It was designed with amazing forethought to be a hotel or coffee palace and so it could be either one large building or three separate buildings.” The building’s National Trust heritage listing meant external walls could not be touched. Design rigour and respect for the building’s history were paramount in approaching the renovation, according to Geyer. “We were looking for a striking contemporary feel while being able to preserve the building’s integrity and make it liveable. “We decided to keep the memories of the past and open the place up.” The result is a playful and refined house that uses natural light, texture and the redefinition of spaces to create a stunning contemporary home. The owners, who are designers, let the architect have her head with colour, so vivid splashes of colour sit happily among predominantly white interiors. Traditional Victorian features of Baltic pine floors and marble mantelpieces were retained, a lift installed and spaces shifted around. For example, the main bedroom is now at the top level in what was formerly a gym space. A dressing room below is reached by what was once the servants’ stairs and skylights bring the light inside. \ mharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

CATEGORY \ HERITAGE Project name \ east Melbourne House Architect \ Zoë Geyer architect The jury said that the architect had overcome one of the many challenges of residential design, working within the constraints of an existing building. “When the existing building has a heritage provenance and falls within planning and other controls, the problems can seem even larger. How refreshing then, this project is to behold. it is not a generic solution that can be readily applied to other heritage buildings, but an exemplar of care, craftsmanship and fine judgments. a committed design approach by the architect coupled with the client going that extra distance has resulted in an exciting and engaging single contemporary dwelling.” \

he morning after the night before Zoë Geyer is still in shock. Twelve hours earlier the architect had been declared the winner of the heritage award in the prestigious Houses Awards 2013. Geyer won the award for her renovation and reconfiguration of a 126-year-old East Melbourne house on Queen Bess Row. The judges commended the architect for “a beautifully detailed modern dwelling befitting its location and heritage status”. “This distinguished project proves that in the right hands the so-called impositions of heritage have been the cue to fly.” Geyer, 35, started her practice, Zoë Geyer Architect (ZGA) in 2009 after working at John Wardle Architects and Kennedy Nolan Architects. The third annual Houses Awards, sponsored by Houses magazine, were announced in front of about 200 architects and designers at Federation Square recently. Victorian architects starred, scooping up 40 per cent of the 139 shortlisted projects at the awards. Geyer’s entry was the first project she had done from start to finish as principal of her own practice. “I entered this project in a few competitions so on a personal level it’s lovely [to win] for my first project,” she says. The rambling three-storey house was one of three terraces built in 1886.

BISLEY PLACE HOUSE

The project is a robust, innovative courtyard home that celebrates the very ordinariness of its surrounds. The jury said: “This design succeeds in creating opportunity where none seemingly existed. It does not repudiate the ‘Australian ugliness’ context, but relies on the quintessential ordinariness of the streetscape to enrich the experience. It rethinks the possibilities that architecture offers Australian suburbia.” The jury also noted that “few architects would possess the courage even to accept this brief and that fewer still would have applied fresh thinking to produce such an arresting outcome. Occasionally you come across a project that stops you in your tracks. This is such a house.” \

The jury said that the Merricks Beach House by the Fitzroy-based practice celebrated simplicity. A compact floor plan has been carefully resolved around a central courtyard, which expands the apparent sense of space. The minimum elements of weekend necessity (kitchen, single bathroom and barbecue) are arranged in a direct and disciplined manner, yet this small house comfortably accommodates up to 13 guests. While this house is modest in its intentions, it successfully demonstrates the maturity and self-discipline required when working with a limited budget. The house delivers much from little and provides a refined model for a sustainable future. \

got an ironic iconic idea? email me

(City of Melbourne)

he Asian Food Festival has just begun, a celebration of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Thai and Vietnamese cuisines and cultural events – all stir-fried and sizzling in Melbourne’s Chinatown. We’ve come a long way from the frustrating inconvenience of chopsticks and Sunday night takeaway from our local Chinese café. We’ve fed on our diverse cultural differences – literally and metaphorically – and grown through these exchanges. My first Chinatown experience was in a tiny, dark, lacklustre cubicle above a Chinese restaurant that displayed a chorus-line of barbecued ducks in its front window. I’d come in search of acupuncture. This was the early 1980s and most people held one of two opinions – that acupuncture was barbaric or that it was about as useful as wringing your hands and humming an indistinct tune. I was curious but naturally expected the worst. The worst happened to me when the acupuncturist began turning me into a pincushion. After the treatment I was handed a paper bag full of what looked like garden waste; dried leaves, seedpods and twigs that, all together, exuded a smell of goats and chickens. This was followed by simple cooking instructions – the twigs were my medicine. Buoyed by my improved health, I returned for several treatments. But the most profound impact of these weekly appointments was the opportunity to acquaint myself with the many and varied layers of Chinatown. Chinese first arrived in Victoria during the 1850s gold rush and Chinatown quickly became a cultural,

Designed by architect Peter Kerr and finished in 1861, this is the earliest surviving Chinese community building in Victoria and the location of the earliest known surviving Chinese shrine in Australia, and possibly the earliest outside Asia. Lowe Kong Meng, a prosperous and successful early settler – and president of the Sam Yup Society (which later became the Num Pon Soon Society) – advocated building the Chinese Society Clubhouse and contributed towards it. The building and its contents are a remarkable reminder of the importance of district associations to expatriate Chinese in Western countries from the late 18th to early 20th centuries. \

the chiNatoWN ciNema Film is undeniably a potent vehicle for informing, educating and entertaining an audience. Through film it’s possible to give meaning and form to a culture and history different from ours and that’s exactly the opportunity this iconic cinema has provided. The Chinatown Cinema opened in 1970 – known as the Mid City Complex because the theatres were located in the Mid City Arcade. Despite occasional rocky times, the cinema has survived for more than 40 years. This bastion of Hong Kong films as well as classic kung fu, Bollywood, Korean and Japanese animation productions is one of the last Chinese cinemas outside Asia. \

commercial and residential hub – it was a staging post on the long journey to the goldfields. By the late 1850s, Little Bourke Street offered lodging houses, provision stores, Chinese butchers, candle makers and opium manufacturers. Many of the buildings in Chinatown date from the mid to late 19th century. Despite widespread official discrimination against Chinese immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries this is the longest continuous Chinese settlement in the Western world. Traditional arches announce the entrance to Chinatown. They embody ancient mythologies that are expressed through colour, symbol, sign and shape. Four identical gateways were erected in 1976, one on each intersection from Swanston Street moving towards Parliament House. At Spring Street there’s a more modern arch and the Tianjin Gardens, designed by the City of Melbourne and its sister city Tianjin in China. The gateways were redesigned in 1985; the community believed they brought bad feng shui, because they’d been modelled on tomb gateways of the Ming dynasty. A fifth gateway, the Facing Heaven Gateway in Cohen Place, was built in China and assembled in Melbourne in 1985 to mark Victoria’s 150th anniversary. The gateways are like signposts along a passage from awe to curiosity, to charm. Along with the marble lions, the dumplings, drunken chicken, noodle houses, Chinese groceries and acupuncturists, they are a highlight of Melbourne’s Chinatown. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com

Don’t enter this building if you suffer from consecotaleophobia – a fear of chopsticks. The home of Po Hong Trading Company, it contains more oriental knick-knackery than you can poke a soy-sauced drumstick at. Designed by George De Lacy Evans and built in 1887-88 – also for Lowe Kong Meng – it was a warehouse and residence until 1889 when it was occupied by publishers of the newspaper Table Talk. The newspaper moved out in 1903, and the building has since been used for a host of commercial endeavours. The embellished façade, with its Western interpretation of Chinese style, is a kind of visual anomaly but works beautifully. \
