don’t know who was more breathless: the excited TV guru Adam Boland as he announced that McDonald’s was to be the major, on-set sponsor of Ten’s forthcoming breakfast show, Wake Up, or the collective audience of Australian mothers who now realised they would have to deal with kids nagging for Maccas from sunrise to sundown. The groundbreaking sponsorship deal will see “the smallest McDonald’s in the country” installed on set, not for the public, but to serve breakfast items to hosts Natarsha Belling, James Mathison, Nuala Hafner and Natasha Exelby and their guests. Nutritionists such as Rosemary Stanton slammed the idea, and you don’t need me to tell you why. But the network couldn’t see the problem. “McDonald’s is not in the main shot of Wake Up. That is, it is not part of the main set, it is part of the studio.” Was this an elaborate hoax? A fast-food outlet, and one of the most controversial, installed on a TV set? Is life so hard in commercial TV these days you have to sell real estate to the sponsors? Now before everything I’m about to say here is dismissed as the piety of an anti-commercial, publicly

funded broadcaster, let me remind you that I come from commercial journalism, that this column is written for a commercial venture, and that it has been of no concern to me that my work has been run alongside advertising for most of my working life. I have no problem with advertising. But as a presenter working in the very particular, rather strange idiom of breakfast TV, this decision seems to be a grave error of judgment. Family, health, medical and food stories are the staples of our kind of television: not a week goes by without a discussion on them, and I can’t see how you can have any credibility in discussing childhood obesity, the staggering rise in type-2 diabetes diagnoses or healthy eating with a fast-food outlet on set. In breakfast TV, if the set is on at home then children are invariably running around it at that hour, and the prospect of being nagged by the kids for Maccas must be horrifying for many mums: “But they eat it every day, mum …” I can’t know for certain, but I’m going to go out on a (very skinny) limb here and suggest that there’s no way someone such as Natarsha Belling would allow herself to

be served hash browns and McMuffins for breakfast any day of the week: that’s not how you manage to stay slim and camera-ready. Believe me. If, as I imagine, the glowing and healthy looking presenters continue to eat good food while their show pushes fast food on their viewers, then the petard of hypocrisy will await their hoisting: did no one else notice that Boland, just hours before the news broke, retweeted Oxfam Australia’s World Food Day tips for eating sustainably? Let’s wait for the hard-nosed ad guys and gals of Gruen to dissect this for us: the financial gain of the big-brand signing versus the loss of goodwill through a fast-food association, but I have a fair idea about where they’ll end up. We’ll have to see how my old mate, Russel Howcroft, now general manager of Network Ten, navigates the landmines of this discussion. But finally, most importantly, and on a genuinely, deeply felt note, let me offer my sincere sympathies to the cast and crew of Wake Up, who now have to present two hours of smiling, laughing live TV every morning surrounded by the smell of deep-frying oil. \

The areas shaded maroon above show where the analog TV signals will be switched off on 10 December 2013*. After this date, these areas will receive digital-only signals. If you haven’t already done so, you need to get ready for digital-only TV.

How do I tell if I have digital TV? If you can see ABC2, SBS TWO, GO!, 7TWO or Eleven, you are digital ready and don’t need to do anything.

If I can’t see those channels, what do I have to do? Remember, to keep watching free-to-air TV shows, you’ll need either: • one set-top box or a digital TV recorder for each analog TV you use; or • a new TV with a built-in digital tuner. Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you do not want to. Most antennas and cabling should work after the digital switchover. However, if you have any concerns about your reception, you may consider asking an endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling. If you have any other questions, or to find your nearest endorsed Antenna Installer, visit our website or call the Digital Ready Information Line.

Get ready for digital TV today. *Please note: switch off may occur earlier in some towns. Residents in these towns will be informed about the switchover dates. See the website for more information.

he’s a Logie Award winner and popular co-host on Channel Ten’s The Project. Now Carrie Bickmore can add style icon to her list of credits – and that’s without even trying. Bickmore, 32, is one of the most talked about women on Australian television, and a lot of that’s down to what she wears on the show each night. Women around the country have become obsessed with the immaculately groomed presenter’s sartorial style, and long after the studio lights are turned off, fashion bloggers dissect every detail of her outfit – mapping her look for others to replicate. Along with Big Brother’s Sonia Kruger, Bickmore is renowned in the fashion industry for generating a huge number of customer inquiries and purchases. “It’s something that still seems weird to me,” says Bickmore, mother of five-year-old Oliver. She prefers to describe herself as a working mum rather than a sartorial inspiration. “People come up to me on the street on a daily basis telling me they love what I wore on the show, where did I get it from and who is the designer. They tell me they love me in magenta. I’m like, what? I still struggle with the idea that someone wants to buy something I wore,” Bickmore says. Thanks to her stylist, Natalie Crighton, Bickmore enjoys wearing Australian designer labels such as Alice McCall and Manning Cartell. But she also has a knack for making budget items from the likes of Lovisa and Portmans appear streets ahead of their price tag. So it’s no surprise that this month she takes on the role of fashion and lifestyle ambassador – along with make-up artist Liz Kelsh – of the new Fashion and Beauty Uncovered campaign; a festival of workshops, runways and style tutorials being rolled out by shopping centres across Melbourne to celebrate spring and summer style. Her number-one style tip? “Take some risks with your wardrobe,” she says, beaming, revealing that although she now swears by leather pants, she wouldn’t have considered trying them on without a bit of pushing from her stylist. “Sometimes you just need a little encouragement,” she says. “You don’t need to buy a whole new wardrobe to keep up to date with trends. Just buy a few key items you can mix and match.” Bickmore says she was hardly fashionable in her 20s, although she’s certain at the time she thought she was. “When I look back at the outfits I wore I had no idea what I was doing. Now, being a working mum, I am not online watching trends and out shopping every weekend. It helps that I have my stylist throwing beautiful clothes at me every day,” she says. Although you would hardly pick it, given her polished TV presence, Bickmore describes herself as shy and nervous. Yet in person, she is every bit as down to earth and warm as her on-screen persona. She’s a pocket rocket in conversation, fast and snappy as if a TV ad break is approaching, and always smiling. And she wears her heart on her sleeve. “I come across as a very confident person but I have only started to feel comfortable in my own skin now that I am in my 30s,” she admits. “As a teenager there was a lot of pressure to be a certain way, and add to that the fact I was very underdeveloped for a girl, I felt very shy, even though my outer personality was bright and bubbly. The real

JANE ROCCA mEEts thE PROJECt’s CARRiE BiCkmORE me is only starting to come out now and it’s through surviving some tough times that’s made me this way,” Bickmore says. Born in Adelaide, Bickmore moved to Perth at five with her mother (Jennie) following her parents’ divorce. Her mum remarried and Bickmore inherited two older stepsisters. Like many girls, she dreamed of being a ballerina, but eventually set her sights on a career in the media, inspired in part by her father, Brian – one of the founders of the Austereo Network – who worked in radio in Adelaide and now lives in Melbourne. (He has just announced his departure from the network after 24 years.) After attending an all-girls school, Perth College, where she loved performing arts, Bickmore enrolled in journalism at Curtin University. A year before graduating she applied for, and won, a job at a Perth radio station, 92.9FM, in order to get a jump on her fellow students. It was an early sign of her drive to succeed.

A

year later, in 2001 she moved to Melbourne to work on the new Nova radio station. As well as a great career opportunity, she says the decision was also partly driven by a desire to rekindle a relationship with her father. “I always wanted to reconnect with my dad after he and mum separated,” she says. “At the time I was telling my partner, Greg [Lange], that if I moved to Melbourne we would probably end up breaking up. He told me to not worry, everything would work out. He got a job in Melbourne and we both moved from Perth.” The couple set up home in Richmond and later in Ivanhoe. She recalls arriving in Melbourne 12 years ago full of a lust for life. She would seldom say no to dancing the night away at a club, occasionally heading straight to work afterwards to read the morning news. “I look back at that and don’t know how I did it,” Bickmore says,

recalling those 5am starts. “Being young I suppose.” Young, smart, attractive and building a career, Bickmore appeared to have it all, but then her world came crashing down when, later that year, Greg was diagnosed with a brain tumour. He died in 2010. Dealing with death is hard enough but Bickmore’s public profile meant that, at just 30 years of age, she became the media’s poster girl for the grieving young widow. Everyone wanted a piece of her, but all she wanted was peace of mind. How did she come through it? “I think when you have been on the kind of ride I had in my 20s you find a certain strength within,” she says. “All the stuff that happened in my personal life, from losing Greg to having a child, I am still surprised at just how strong I was in those circumstances. “Greg’s death taught me not to sweat the small stuff. Having lived with someone living and dying with cancer showed me the importance of not getting caught up in my world of work. “Having Oliver has given me perspective too – he is pure joy. The best time of my day is the morning when I wake and see him and the night when I come home. We are very close; he is my little buddy. When I am not at work we hang out together all the time. I can’t imagine him not in my life.” Her burgeoning television career also offered a chink of light – an opportunity to think ahead. With the support of her mother, who moved to Melbourne to help with Oliver, and some nannies, she was able to piece together the jigsaw of balancing work and motherhood. Bickmore got her start on TV in 2006, while reading news at Nova, when she was offered a TV spot on Rove. “I got a call from my agent saying someone from Roving Enterprises wanted me to come in for an audition. At the time Sandra Sully read the news headlines and I thought that’s what they asked me in

to audition for, but I arrived and it was these random stories and jokes I had to deliver,” she says. “I don’t think I really knew what the job was until I said yes.” Since then she has interviewed celebrities such as Brad Pitt, had her patience tested by former Sex Pistol Johnny Lydon, who went on a sexist rant earlier this year in a very bizarre pre-record, and she got the nation laughing when she accidentally mixed up her news headlines when discussing cheap fares and Qantas – merging the two words, and blurting out c--tas. Bickmore has proved she can rise above almost any circumstance – she’s not phased by celebrity status, and can handle the heat when the going gets tough. Most importantly, she knows how to laugh at herself when a broadcast is going pearshaped. Her days start early when Oliver wakes his mum at 6.30am, tugging at her bed sheets telling her it’s time to get up. Two hours later they’re out the door of their Northcote home, sandwiches in hand, dinner planned for that night and left in the fridge. “He’s my little man,” Bickmore says. If time permits, she will fit in a quick run, walk, or Pilates class before arriving at Channel Ten in South Yarra by 10am. Twelve hours later she’ll be asleep on the couch. “I am pretty boring,” she says munching on a wrap sandwich, trying to fit in interviews, photo shoots and planning for the evening’s show all at the same time. “I don’t get out much at night. I just love being home.” It has been reported she has a new boyfriend (Project

producer Chris Walker), but she likes to keep her private life just that. While her job at the news desk revolves around finding out the nitty-gritty details of others, she’s not a fan of invasive journalism. “I am very careful with questions I ask people. If I know someone doesn’t want to talk about something then I won’t push it,” Bickmore says. “I do think it’s hard when you are a person in the limelight and people want to know things about you. I do share aspects of my life with people, it’s my nature to do so, but I have to remind myself the people around me in my personal life didn’t sign up to be exposed or be discussed.” However, as her stakes as a style icon continue to rise, it seems inevitable Carrie Bickmore will continue to be a hot topic of conversation. \ jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au We WeLCome your feedbaCk @

permanently. Many of her customers say they saw it while stopped at traffic lights on the corner of Brighton Road and Carlisle Street, and made a note to return. When Andruszko discovered the space up for rent in the tiny strip of shops, the marble foundation plaque gave her the theme for her café. The Prahran and St Kilda United Friendly Societies and Medical Dispensary was founded in 1883 and the building housed a doctor’s surgery and medical clinic for decades. Andruszko says records show long-serving resident Dr Lawrence Schnookal tended many bullet wounds. Many things “just fell into place” to help the business succeed, she says. The footpath is wide enough for tables and on the sunny side of the street. There are council offices, schools and a crèche nearby. The food, cooked by her mother, Lyn Andruszko, has an old-fashioned English feel, featuring dishes such as bubble and squeak, pulled pork with cabbage and apple sauce, and scone sliders with jam and cream. Cakes and muffins are displayed in sparkling replica medicine cabinets, and old-fashioned bottled soft drinks are displayed atop antique scales.

(Maggie Bufe)

he last time I dined at Kelp it was summer, my feet were covered in sand, and an accidental long lunch resulted in me enjoying the tastiest seafood linguine I’ve experienced along the peninsula. It helped that the linguini ribbons were made in-house and that the seafood mix of prawns, scallops, clams and mussels tangled in the pasta were wonderfully fresh and fat. But it was the elegant dance that a handful of juicy, roasted cherry tomatoes and brave sprinkling of dill performed with the white wine and garlic that elevated this simple dish to lofty heights. It had me happily marooned on the beach savouring those flavours for the remainder of the afternoon. So it was with great expectations that I returned on a Saturday to experience Kelp’s finer-dining evening fare. The restaurant’s clean, modern lines, dim lighting, open kitchen and black slate plates come into their own at night when the wait staff swap T-shirts for shirts and head chef Tarin McKimmie releases the handbrake on flash kitchen trickery. McKimmie took the reins from head chef Kasin Francis last year after serving under him as sous chef. She’s kept the contemporary menu, albeit with less Caribbean influence, and amped up the seasonal element, which I love. Unfortunately the menu makes for a dizzying and thoroughly confusing reading experience, with many dishes listed as a record of almost every ingredient rather than a written picture of what to expect. It left me gasping for air and searching for help. It came in spades. Our waiter was so well versed in the language of Kelp that we abandoned the menu and went with his recommendations, right down to his suggestion that we skip a craft brew plucked from a list of 20 and instead dig into a structured red wine from Coonawarra to match our meals. It’s easy to be persuaded when the wine list is as interesting, appealing, and pleasantly priced as Kelp’s. When the entrées arrived, we were grateful we’d allowed our waiter to steer our dining experience. Two overweight balls of haloumi and buffalo mozzarella came prettily plated on a thick lick of mango and Hennessy XO purée. Rolled in dukkah and parmesan before being flash fried, the balls’ spicy golden exterior gave way to an oozing cheesy centre and worked surprisingly well with the sweetness of mango. Visually, the dry crumble combination of chocolate, macadamia, orange and cranberry sandwiched in the centre works, but the sweetness was too much for me. There’s a lot going on in the entrée calamari, too. Pumpkin purée is the foundation of the tower of spiced fig and pomegranate couscous, meaty, scored calamari, Drysdale saltbush “shev” cheese, herb paste, and delicate lemon-balm tendrils. It’s a nice dish but quality components get lost in the busyness. The main dish, called Kelp’s wild vegie garden, was not just from the garden – it was a garden: a collage of

more than 10 vegetables and grains, spiced and cooked differently, then arranged on the plate to resemble a garden. A spread of du puy lentils acted as the dirt, asparagus spears the sturdier plants between the beds of lettuce, roast cherry tomatoes, baby beets and potato medallions. The concept was solid but the execution was messy and let down by a dry terracotta-potted zucchini soufflé in the centre. A dory fillet was more on the mark, the fleshy fish served alongside a lick of luscious cannellini purée, spiced with saffron and peppered with lovely smoky artichoke, juicy cherry tomatoes, chickpeas and an earthy olive tapenade. The kitchen saved the best until last and luckily I’d also saved room: a chocolate ambrosia plate, as it’s named on the menu, was a beautifully presented strip of unashamed chocolate decadence. A run of crunchy, airy chocolate puffs, chocolate twirls and cracking honeycomb was offset by a quenelle of chocolate-and-honey ice-cream, a square of rich dark-chocolate soufflé, and a caramel-chocolate mousse cake, crowned with Persian fairy floss. Sound intense? It was, and I devoured every last spoonful. I felt the same smug satisfaction I’d experienced after discovering Kelp’s linguine. Except this time it was far too cold to curl up on the beach and revel in my food memories. \ mjdaffy@theweeklyreview.com.au chocolaTe desserT plaTe

The Travel Book: A Journey Through Every Country In The World By Lonely Planet » $49.99 (Lonely Planet)

n 1972 British couple Maureen and Tony Wheeler spent six months travelling across Asia to Australia. Subsequent requests from friends for travel tips, and a growing realisation that there was a gap in the travel publishing market, prompted the Wheelers to write their own guidebook. In a recent interview with Enterprise Nation, Tony Wheeler explained that their 1973 title, Across Asia on the Cheap, “aimed it at young backpackers and covered territory that there hadn’t been guidebooks available on before”, adding that “the first book was a one-off. It was a fun thing to do”. The Lonely Planet business was born and over the next three decades the Wheelers and their colleagues built it into one of the world’s most successful book publishers. In 2007 BBC Worldwide acquired 75 per cent of the Lonely Planet group for about £88 million, with the Wheelers later selling BBC their remaining 25 per cent for a further £42 million. In its 40 years Lonely Planet, which was bought this year by US billionaire Brad Kelley’s NC2 Media, has printed more than 100 million books. Currently it has 500 up-to-date travel guides covering 195 countries in the marketplace. LP also produces some beautiful hardback pictorial books, including its highly popular The Travel Book which, as it reflects in this year’s edition, “offers a glimpse of each country’s perks and quirks: where to go, what to see, how to eat it up and drink it in, and ways to immerse yourself in the life and the land”. For armchair travellers, or children and teenagers who want to learn more about the world, or anyone who is planning a trip but is still unsure where to go, this is the Christmas gift for you. The book follows an A-Z format, starting with Afghanistan and ending with Zimbabwe. Each country receives a double-page

spread, and in this space designers have included colour photos, a little map, a one-paragraph overview, then subheadings such as “best time to visit”, “top things to see”, “top things to do” and the like. It is a simple but brilliant formula and shows the talents of LP’s editors in taking a raft of information and repackaging it in an easy-to-read and visually enticing format. The photographs play a vital role in telling each country’s story. As the editors explain in their introduction, “photos are paramount in capturing and sharing the spirit of a place and its people, and images

in this book have been chosen to weave stories of their own. Clichéd icons and picture-postcard views have been avoided in favour of photos that tell of life in its myriad forms – at work, at play, at worship, laughing, singing, relaxing, dancing or just surviving – in order to bring you countries, not brochures.” While it continues to produce quality publications such as The Travel Book, Lonely Planet’s brand will remain strong and viable, regardless of ownership.

ngredients: start with a mass of idyllic natural settings, add several cellars of award-winning wine, a tonne of prime local produce, two buckets of high-profile chefs, a cup of unique events and a pinch of relaxation. Stir gently until it reaches perfect harmony. The result … 2012’s inaugural Margaret River Gourmet Escape. The only thing missing was the hangover cure. Located three hours south-west of Perth, Margaret River is already well known for its beautiful beaches, spectacular tall-tree forests, cave systems, surfing, excellent wines and fresh produce. Last year it added a world-class culinary extravaganza, which cemented the region as a must-see destination for foodies. The Gourmet Escape gained enormous international recognition as, one by one, the high-profile chefs who had been invited to the event gushed about the local produce, unique experiences and relaxed atmosphere. One highlight was the pop-up Gourmet Beach Barbecue feast held under enormous teepees. So too the Icon Dinner, which was held at Voyager Estate. Among the other events were: a Long Lunch at Fraser Gallop Estate; The Chefs’ Table, where guests got the chance to ask questions of key chefs; the Chefs’ Theatre; Wine Theatre; Kids’ Cooking Class; Test Kitchen; and wine tours. The Gourmet Village, set in the beautiful grounds of Leeuwin Estate, was the heart of the action, with demonstrations, interactive cooking classes, panel discussions, celebrity chefs, pop-up restaurants, and 100 premium exhibitors. That was year one. This year’s event, in November, promises to be even bigger. “We were delighted with the inaugural launch last year and can’t wait to develop an even bigger and more exciting program,” says event organiser Naomi Wilson. “We want to build on this and become the leading food and wine event in the Asia Pacific.” With such a successful beginning and more than 25 international, Australian and local food and wine celebrities already on board for this year, I’ve no doubt this will be achieved. Already confirmed are Heston Blumenthal, Rick Stein, Alex Atala, Sat Bains, Neil Perry and Adriano Zumbo. Blumenthal is already excited. “The Gourmet Escape is going to be quite unlike any other; you will be able to mix with winemakers, cheesemakers, chefs, producers; all kinds of people

who are passionate about food and cooking,” Blumenthal says. Last year the tickets sold out quickly and, due to the overwhelming demand, the organisers have added some new events. I’ve blocked off November 22-24 and have my eye on the degustations, long lunches and exclusive dinners. My tips 1 Grab a ticket from Ticketek. They start from $38 for a general-entry day pass, with separate tickets required for the other events. 2 Think about using the event pick-up buses operating from Bunbury, Busselton, Yallingup, Dunsborough and Margaret River. 3 Extend your stay so you don’t have to jump on a plane straight away. This has two benefits: you can explore the region a bit more, and you won’t have to fly while still suffering the effects of the Escape’s bounty. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

It’s easy to see why it scored a WA Good Food Guide mention in 2012, ’13 for Top Five Pub Food. The menu is massive and the wine list is equally huge; just as well the chauffeur bus is on call. \

ThE CANoPy oF ChARRED GUMS AND EUCALyPTS

(EDDIE MORTON)

never an ideal sight when you are trying to get a hit of nature on your weekend, but it presents the opportunity to continue to Wombelano Falls via Captains Creek Road, which is worth the extra three-kilometre round trip. Masons Falls and the surrounding tracks total 13 kilometres and the going ranges from easy to moderate. Again, the main picnic ground is well set out with toilets and drinkable water. The scenery here is much of the same, but it’s worth grabbing a few lunch rolls from the Kinglake Bakery and hanging around the falls for a while. On both days and on all trails, we lacked a sense of being off the beaten track, however, that is probably a compliment to the park management as every trail is well signposted, well cleared and well worn. In total, we spent about 10 hours exploring what felt like flat and not-so-challenging terrain before making the one-hour drive back to our inner-city homes. Kinglake doesn’t have the wow factor that other, more distant Victorian mountain ranges have and maybe it is too close to the city to really consider it a hiking destination. But if you, along with hoards of other Melburnians, find yourself driving somewhere like the Dandenongs’ A Thousand Steps for a walk on the weekend, then I strongly encourage you to drive an extra few kilometres to Kinglake to get that little dose of outdoors and a good breath of real fresh air without the crowds. \ emorton@theweeklyreview.com.au

PACK this footwear \ This is an easy day’s walking. Grab your comfy runners and enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle. water & food \ A bottle of water will do it. Head to Kinglake afterwards to the bakery; you won’t be disappointed. The Kinglake Pub also serves meals.

TIP \

Check out Masons Falls and Wombelano Falls; if you can’t do it in a day, make a return trip.

a century of trust BUSINESS ProfIlE \ Berkowitz Furniture is a family affair

in

any baby boomers associate Berkowitz Furniture with a paisley three-piece lounge suite they bought when they purchased their first home. Or the Chesterfield couches their parents have owned for what feels like a lifetime. These classic pieces have become household staples for generations of Australian families. Since the first Berkowitz factory opened in 1913, the brand has developed a reputation for well-designed quality furniture without an exorbitant price tag. And perhaps the reason behind its longevity is that the business has always remained in the hands of the Berkowitz family. It’s hard to believe the company began trading from its Commercial Road site opposite Prahran Market 100 years ago. Since then the Australian furniture industry has undergone drastic changes, and the company has had to reinvent itself to stay in the game. Its transformation from a strictly manufacturing wholesaler to adding a retail arm in 1948 has kept Berkowitz competitive in a climate of rising labour costs, a soaring Australian dollar and competition from global giants offering furniture at prices home-grown brands find difficult to compete with. Peter Berkowitz took control of the company almost 25 years ago in a move that ushered in the fourth generation with a vision of keeping the Berkowitz name a household one. Peter wanted to meet in their new Church Street, Richmond, shop that opened to the public last month. While sitting in the warehouse-like space in the newly fashionable strip, it is clear the shop is heralding a new direction for the historically conservative brand. “We’re seen as a traditional seller of furniture because your grandparents may have bought from here. But we’re here for today’s living as well,” says Peter. It’s the seventh shop to open in what appears to be a move designed to shrug off their traditional look to appeal to the latest crop of young home owners. Accordingly, the space is filled with contemporary,

It was under his uncle’s guidance in a little East End furniture shop in Petticoat Lane, where everything was near enough to handmade, that Samuel developed the skills to open his own business, which he did in London a few years later. Arriving in Melbourne in 1912, Samuel brought out his wife and children a year later and put his two eldest boys, then 13 and 14, to work in his home-based factory in North Melbourne. Five years later, a bigger factory was needed, so he moved to 467 Malvern Road, Prahran, and continued to make furniture as Berkowitz and Sons until after World War II. During the war, Lionel recalls furniture production ground almost to a halt. “I think only 10 per cent of their production was allowed to be furniture, the rest was boxes for aircraft and ammunitions,” samuel he says. “And I can remember as a small boy going to the factory and rows and fled the rows of coffins were in there; they were all anti-jewish berkowitz Archive for the war effort.” pogroms In 1948 they opened a shop in Collins Street monochrome sofas mimicking European trends. but, when rental costs soared, they kickstarted Like many successful family-run businesses, the exodus of furniture shops from the city out to this one was born from poverty.

Keith Haring (1958-1990), a pivotal player in new york’s art scene during the early 1980s, is considered one of the most significant artists of his generation. During a visit to Melbourne in 1984 he created the mural on the side of Collingwood Technical School. What a coup to be able to view this iconic artist’s work smack dab in the middle of Collingwood. This openly gay artist and campaigner for the acceptance of those with aIDS had a profound influence on local young artists. Some believe his visit helped encourage Melbourne’s vital street-art movement. This vibrant work (7.4 x 11.5 metres) with its yellow background and red, blue and green figures is pure Haring. \

Mirka Mora is a Melbourne treasure whose work has contributed significantly to the development of contemporary art in australia. This marriage of two icons, Mirka and Flinders Street Station, is a union whose fertile suggestions bring joy to everyone who views it. The mural is on the inside wall at the river end of the station next to Clocks restaurant. Commissioned in the early 1980s in keeping with the renewed interest in public art at the time, it’s a typical Mirka creation full of humour and opportunity for contemplation. The bold colours and recurring motifs – wide-eyed children, angels, dogs, cats, snakes and birds – deliver a visual feast that fills our hearts and teases our brains. \

The Eureka Tower demands your attention; it’s the tallest building in the southern hemisphere. But if you lower your eyes you’ll discover the Queen Bee mural on one side. This sculptural mural of a Queen Bee and her colony gleaming off the side of the skyscraper is the perfect metaphor for a gigantic tower. architect nonda Katsalidis saw these original sculptures, created by richard Stringer in 2003-04, and sourced funding for a large-scale version while Stringer adapted it to the building. The bees are made from anodised aluminium sheet, using cast aluminium for all the antennae and small bees’ legs. The sheets are riveted together using 110,000 anodised rivets. \
