have been the Port Phillip Baykeeper since 2008, as a voluntary extension of my role as director of Port Phillip EcoCentre. Port Phillip Baykeeper is affiliated with the Waterkeeper Alliance, an international organisation that supports community education and advocacy for healthy waterways around the world. Major threats to Port Phillip Bay include invasion by Northern Pacific seastars, the ongoing practice of dumping contaminated sediments dredged from the Yarra, and the general lack of public awareness that various pollutants across Melbourne are washed into the bay through stormwater drains when it rains. Plastic litter is a particular threat that everyone can do something about. Plastics gradually break into pieces small enough to be accidentally swallowed by sea life. Swallowing plastic will kill seabirds as they are unable to digest it. Wildlife frequently becomes entangled in litter, preventing it from moving freely so it starves to death. Floating plastic is a threat to marine species worldwide, including here in St Kilda. Floating plastics absorb other toxins in the water, which enter the food chain when eaten by small fish, then larger fish and eventually us. Gathering data is essential in order to make a convincing case for change. The Baykeeper Cigarette Butt Safaris are a good example of this approach. In seven surveys conducted in 2011, we recorded the number of butts in front of each property on a

500-metre section of Blessington Street, St Kilda, and the 200-metre beach between St Kilda marina and Brooks Jetty. We found 59 per cent of butts in front of businesses that make up only 12 per cent of the street frontage. We also found the number of butts on the beach increased by 800 per cent after heavy rain. This data will inform strategies to improve waste disposal

infrastructure, education and enforcement. It also directly supports Port Phillip council’s No Cuts, No Butts campaign. During the next 12 months we are joining forces with other community groups that do good work to care for the bay to help raise their public profile and increase participation and support. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Kinder wait list blow for families BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com

PARENTS will have to wait longer to access extra kindergarten places in Port Phillip following delays to a new childcare centre. Work on the St Kilda Family and Children’s Centre was due to be complete this month, but construction is not expected to be finished until the end of the year – with services due to be rolled out in stages during February and March. Port Phillip council said poor weather and changes to the power supply had delayed the project. Once complete, the Chapel Street centre will offer up to 116 licensed children’s service places, providing a long-awaited increase of 63 new spots on the current centre. Work is also under way on the already delayed childcare facility at Liardet Street in Port Melbourne,

which will offer up to 135 places when it opens next year. Demand for kindergarten enrolments in Port Phillip is continuing to grow, but the council has estimated a shortfall of up to 50 places across the municipality in the coming year. Delays to the new services will come as a blow to families who are already battling to find places. Albert Park mother Sarah Crawford enrolled her 2 1 ⁄ 2 year-old twin boys at Haileybury College early learning centre in Brighton after struggling to find places in Port Phillip. “My first choice would have been to get them in at Albert Park or somewhere close by, but it was just so important to know they were in somewhere because you can’t wait,” she said. “Everywhere has extensive waiting lists and you have to pay for each application.”

Guns, knives surrendered BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

WHEEL DEAL Students Sam Aslam, Paul Glaubitz and Davis Clarke, all 19, will spend the Christmas holidays cycling 1000 kilometres across Cambodia to raise $30,000 for St Kilda-based Humanitus, which rolls out education and health projects in South East Asia. The trio have already raised $3165.

A DOUBLE-barrel shotgun, a hunting knife and three .22 calibre rifles have been handed into Port Phillip police during a statewide amnesty. Two shotguns, three knives, a samurai sword and three rifles – one made to look like an M16 – were turned in at South Melbourne police and four handguns were handed into St Kilda police. “Most people said they found the weapons in their loft or attic and decided to turn them in,” said South Melbourne property officer Vicki Ingrams. The guns and weapons amnesty runs until the end of next week. Port Phillip recorded a drop in weapons and explosives offences from 2011 to 2012, down from 213 to 180. Statewide, there was a 25 per cent increase.

VOX POP ARE THERE ENOUGH CHILDCARE PLACES IN PORT PHILLIP? ASHER WOLF, Balaclava No, nobody can get in. It’s a crying shame our government doesn’t value the future of children by investing in early childhood facilities. In future there will be problems much worse than the cost of installing early learning centres here.

SUSIE WEBSTER, Balaclava No, I have been on the waiting list since I conceived [now on maternity leave]. I am told it’s another 6-12 month wait until I get my child in. I have to get a private nanny and that is quite expensive and we can’t get the rebate for that.

NATASHA BOTTEN , St Kilda East No, I have been on the waiting list since June, 2011. I’ve tried both council and private childcare facilities but can’t get in. I’m lucky that my work is quite flexible so I may be able to work around it until we can get in somewhere and then I can go back to work.

breaking and very extreme case. It was one of the toughest we’ve seen,” she said. The 100 volunteers with St Kilda Mums have distributed about 5500 items and helped more than 1000 families since it was established in 2009. It often works with migrant families who do not qualify for Centrelink payments. Citymission’s Cradle to Kinder coordinator, Sam Ware, said St Kilda Mums provided a valuable service. “We often call on them for help,” she said.“We are more focused on case management support and longterm outcomes, like funding educational programs and helping clients access the private rental market.’’ Ms Macpherson said not enough was done to help families in need. “There are babies being born at every hospital every week in Melbourne whose parents have done nothing to prepare for their arrival,” she said. “There is a need in our community but no service to meet it, which is why we are here.”

HELP IS AT HAND: St Kilda Mums volunteers sort donated baby clothes

A VOLUNTEER group in Melbourne’s south-east came to the rescue of a three-month-old boy who was placed into foster care under “heartbreaking” conditions. The infant’s 15-year-old mother is enrolled in Melbourne Citymission’s Cradle to Kinder program for vulnerable and at-risk mothers and their children. The boy was put into kinship foster care earlier this month, but because of the urgency of the arrangement the carer did not have the essentials to look after him. Not-for-profit organisation St Kilda Mums, which redistributes children’s clothing, linen and nursery equipment through dozens of welfare agencies across Melbourne, was enlisted to help. Founder Jessica Macpherson said the group provided clothing, linen and a portable cot within hours of receiving the call. “It was a heart-

PRESSURE POINT There are 339 places offered for sessional kindergarten programs in Port Phillip across nine community-managed sessional kindergartens, unchanged from 2012 and 2011.

A COMMUNITY health service is reaching out to Port Phillip’s vulnerable citizens to try to reduce homelessness. The rate of homelessness in Australia has risen 8 per cent, according to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates following the

2011 Census. There were 105,237 people in Australia classified as homeless on the Census night last year, up from 89,728 in 2006. Non-profit service provider Inner South Community Health Service aims to make a significant impact on homelessness in Melbourne’s inner south through its Community Connections Program, which supports

up to 130 homeless people in the area throughout the year by connecting them with housing and other services. The organisation, which is based in St Kilda, South Melbourne and Prahran, found 74 per cent of people it had helped lived in Port Phillip. One-third were ‘‘sleeping rough’’ and one-third were living in board-

ing houses or rooming houses. CEO of the community health service, Damian Ferrie, said his team actively sought out vulnerable people in parks, squats and rooming houses and developed a trusting relationship with them. ‘‘They then work together to link people into housing, health care and other necessary services,” he said.

Aged care home tries for talks

Survey to help health services

BY LISA HIGGINSON

AFTER hours health services are being put under the spotlight in a bid to find ways of alleviating pressure on hospital emergency departments. Bayside Medicare Local is carrying out a consultation to establish what services are available outside normal business hours in Port Phillip, Bayside, Stonnington, Glen Eira and Kingston. Every medical practice in the region is being asked to complete a survey detailing their out of hours services as part of the investigation into how and where these services can be expanded. Bayside Medicare Local chief executive Elizabeth Deveny said for people to stay well and out of hospital they should be able to access health professionals. “We have been doing a lot of groundwork to identify where people may be missing out on health services and working with health practitioners to improve access to primary care, mental health care and deliver more health services to older people and patients with chronic conditions,” she said. Health professionals and consumers who are interested in helping shape the future of after hours services can attend a planning forum on Wednesday, November 28 at Bayside Medicare Local in Heatherton.

OPERATORS of a proposed 18-metre high aged care home are in talks with objectors in a bid to avoid a planning wrangle. Residents’ group Too Big for South Melbourne lodged an appeal with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal after Port Phillip council approved the 146-bed resid-

ential home, at the rear of the former St Vincent’s Boys Home on Cecil Street, in September. The application for three new buildings, the largest being four storeys, on a one-acre site bordered by Raglan, Church and Napier streets attracted 102 objections that included concerns around height and bulk, overshadowing and loss of light. Claremont and South Port Aged

Care (CaSPA), which will operate the centre, is in talks with residents in the hope of reaching a compromise regarding their concerns and avoiding a tribunal hearing. CaSPA chief executive Stephanie Clark said: “We sought a meeting with objectors following the council’s approval to see what common ground we could find. We have been exploring a number of options with them.” Ms Clark said the main issue

for residents was the development overlooking houses and it was a matter CaSPA was aiming to address. “We are very mindful that we will be residents in that area and we want to have a good relationship with our local community,” she said. An outcome was expected to be reached in the next few weeks, Ms Clark said. CaSPA aims to have the centre operational between April and June 2015.

RESIDENTS are hoping to preserve a piece of Port Melbourne’s horticultural history that came crashing to the ground after 82 years. A 14-metre monterey cypress fell this month in Garden City Reserve. It was one of several planted there in 1930 by the council and the Garden City Progress Association. Lois Daley, who has lived at Garden City Bank Houses Estate since she was born in 1935, is among residents who want the timber kept on the site. “I remember climbing on the trees as children. They were trees to make a statement and this one stood 82 years. We would now like to see the logs used as a seat or a climbing area for people to continue to enjoy this piece of history.” Port Phillip mayor Amanda Stevens said the council was investigating how the wood could be salvaged for seating or sculptures at the reserve.

Change of guard for Grey Street BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

LONG-AWAITED guards to protect trees from vandals on St Kilda’s Grey Street are expected to be in place in the next five weeks. Port Phillip council is spending about $90,000 on 65 new guards, which are being constructed following the continued destruction of young trees along the street. Residents have been lob-

bying the council to install protective guards around the tree sites, which were created in 2010. The council announced in May it would install the guards, but has confirmed it will be later this year before they are in place. Trees are also due to be planted at the same time. Grey Street property owner John Frusher said the council had been negligent in not installing the guards sooner. After con-

ducting regular audits, he said 70 of 89 trees planted since mid-2010 were vandalised and subsequently died. “It is quite outrageous when you consider that the extreme vandalism commenced soon after the trees were planted,” he said. Mayor Amanda Stevens said: “Residents have been notified in writing ... and will be contacted again just prior to the commencement of the works.”

Don’t heed the call: police warn drivers over phones BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

PHONE PLEA: Sergeant Michael Free

POLICE are pleading with drivers to let their mobile phones ring out after figures revealed more than 55,000 Victorian drivers were booked for using their phones at the wheel last year. Sergeant Michael Free, who heads

a team of 11 Stonnington Highway Patrol officers, said mobile phone usage while driving had to stop. The penalty is $282 and three demerit points. “There is a misconception that hands-free devices eliminate the danger ... [but] any distraction is still a serious hazard,’’ Mr Free said. ‘‘People seem to think that answering

their phone is much more important than focussing on the road.” More than 168,000 fines have been issued for driving while using a mobile over the past three years across Victoria. Adam Power, a driving instructor in Melbourne’s south east, said there were few more dangerous things people could do while driving than

using a phone. “You put your friends and your family at risk every second you look away from the road,” he said. “Our multitasking skills are already stretched when you get behind the wheel. Adding another distraction such as friends, radio, mobile phones, adds another second to your reaction time.”

Overhaul for disability support STEPHEN MCKENZIE

BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

THE Bayside community is backing a campaign to overhaul disability support systems that could improve the lives of thousands of people. Disability groups, families and carers have joined with Bayside Medicare Local to support the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The Australian government committed $1 billion to support the first stage of the scheme, which will be launched next year to help 10,000 people with significant disabilities. Bayside Medicare Local’s chief executive Elizabeth Deveny said one in five residents in the area covering Port Phillip, Bayside, Stonnington, Glen Eira and Kingston were affected by a disability. Malvern East mum Leza Daniels said the scheme was needed to help people access available services. Mrs Daniels and her husband were born with forms of dwarfism, as was their son, Max, 6, and daughter Meg, 10. Max, born six weeks premature, also had respiratory and feeding problems. As a toddler, he suffered a curvature of the spine and was in a full-body cast for seven months.

BRIGHTER OUTLOOK: Leza Daniels, with children Meg and Max, needed support for health issues “He was 3 1 ⁄ 2 months old and I came home from hospital being a nurse,’’ Mrs Daniels said. ‘‘It is exhausting trying to navigate your way through a system while coming to terms with all the things

that have had a huge impact on your life. We felt lost and helpless at times.’’ After being contacted by another mother with details of childhood intervention programs, Mrs Daniels accessed support and advice on ther-

apies to help Max and the family. “I can see people not getting the services that are available to them because the information is not out there, so I hope the NDIS changes that.”

Step out for women BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bridget.fitzgerald@fairfaxmedia.com.au

WALKING against domestic violence is an opportunity to stand up on behalf of victims, says the head of a Kingstonbased support service. Staff from the Emerge group will join the Walk Against Family Violence on November 23. The walk has been organised by anti-domestic violence campaign White Ribbon and the Melbourne Walk Against Family Violence committee. Emerge supports women and children who have experienced domestic violence in Melbourne’s southern region, including Kingston, Bayside, Glen Eira, and Port Phillip. Manager Rosemary Barca said the walk was an opportunity to honour women and raise awareness. “There are many myths and misunderstandings surrounding family violence,’’ she said. ‘‘But the statistics speak for themselves.” The walk, from Melbourne Town Hall to Federation Square, starts at 2.30pm on Friday, November 23.

Help and better health at hand for the homeless A COMMUNITY health service is reaching out to Melbourne’s vulnerable citizens to try to reduce homelessness. The rate of homelessness in Australia has risen 8 per cent, according to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates following the 2011 Census. There were 105,237 people in Australia classified as 8 PORT PHILLIP REVIEW LOCAL

homeless on the Census night last year, up from 89,728 in 2006. Non-profit service provider Inner South Community Health Service aims to make a significant impact on homelessness in Melbourne’s inner south through its Community Connections Program, which supports up to 130 homeless people in the area throughout the year by con-

necting them with housing and other services. The organisation, which is based in St Kilda, South Melbourne and Prahran, found 74 per cent of people it had helped lived in Port Phillip. One-third were ‘‘sleeping rough’’ and one-third were living in boarding houses or rooming houses. CEO of the community health ser-

vice, Damian Ferrie, said his team actively sought out vulnerable people in parks, squats and rooming houses and developed a trusting relationship with them. ‘‘They then work together to link people into housing, health care and other necessary services,” Mr Ferrie said. LISA HIGGINSON

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ UNWELCOME WELCOME Port Melbourne Harbour/Pier is the front window of our lovely city to all arriving passenger ships. With the cruise ship season upon us, I wish to bring to your attention a sore sight that will greet our visitors. Shuttle buses bring all the tourists off the ships and out of the dock area and drop them off at the same location. That area looks an abandoned site, littered with empty bottles, papers, rubbish in general, overgrown weeds and so forth. That whole area is bad. What does it take to maintain this sad-looking spot to be respectable all year round? Mario Perrone / via email ■ STITCHED UP I’m truly torn. While I love that the South Melbourne institution the Australian Tapestry Workshop gained some well-deserved international recognition with the Prince of Wales’ visit (‘‘Prince has good yarn’’, RL, November 14), well

it was the Prince of Wales! Must we continue to kowtow to these foreigners? Such behaviour is an embarrassing hangover of our past. Sarah / via email

■ THE DEVIL’S WORK The ABC’s mini-series Devil’s Dust has once again highlighted the horrific toll wrought on the Australian public by the companies behind asbestos. The fact we’re now seeing people as young as 30 and 40 diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases shows this is not an issue of the past, with many believing asbestos will have its biggest impact on the nation’s health in coming years. It is not just asbestos workers who were and will be affected. So, too, were their wives, who often washed the deadly dust out of their husbands’ clothes or the children who hugged them when they returned home from work each day. We also know potentially thousands of Australians will become ill after being exposed to

asbestos dust during home renovation projects and, with an estimated one in three Australian homes still containing asbestos, more work needs to be done to raise awareness of the dangers. Anyone contemplating do-ityourself renovations should seek professional advice about the presence of asbestos, particularly for houses built in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

■ PELL MELL George Pell is apparently concerned about protecting the institution or organisation ahead of the individuals and beliefs it professes to stand for, which is common in many organisations.

NOVEMBER 21, 2012

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

wo acrobats in an elephant suit are walking a tightrope strung high above a ferris wheel overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Below, crowds gather to watch sideshow attractions ranging from contortionists and trick cyclists to daring Swedish performer Miss Marie Thelin, who sets herself alight before diving off a15-metre platform into a small pool. The year is 1912. Australia’s population is approaching five million, the Prime Minister is Andrew Fisher and an unsinkable ship is about to set sail from Southampton for New York. It’s also the year that a team of engineers travelled from the United States to Australia to build the first of seven Luna Parks around the country. Only one has survived in its original glory. Five of the originals closed permanently and Adelaide’s was shipped to Sydney after the Depression. Next month, Luna Park in Melbourne celebrates its centenary having opened its gates on December 13, 1912. Built on a wedge of swampy St Kilda foreshore, long before diversions such as televisionand Xbox came on the scene, it was modelled on the original Luna Park in New York’s Coney Island, and attracted more than 22,000 patrons on opening night. For sixpence, visitors to Melbourne’s Luna Park were treated to circus-like attractions that would raise eyebrows at WorkSafe today. In its heyday, as catchcries of ‘‘Roll-up! Roll- up!’’ competed with the resident brass band, children received carpet burns as they flung themselves down slides on hessian bags, romantics posed for photographs in front of an animated Waning Moon, and patriots hurled crockery at an effigy of German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm. Scallywags who wrought havoc at the park were kicked out, literally, receiving a boot to the bottom as they bent over to exit through a small door at the back of the Giggle Palace. Early attractions included English conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton as well as 12-year-

old Baby Ben who, long before the nation’s obesity epidemic, was crowned the “world’s fattest boy”, weighing in at 159 kilograms. “It was a little bit carnival back then,” says Mary Stuart, Luna Park’s executive director.“There were all sorts of very quaint, fun forms of live entertainment. And some which were politically incorrect.” Despite the decline in live entertainment over the years, the park still attracts about 800,000 visitors a year.These days, there are 18 rides and attractions, including old favourites such as the Ghost Train and Dodgem Cars, and a selection of contemporary rides such as the Spider, Enterprise and Pharaoh’s Curse. Stuart joined Luna Park in 2005, but her link goes back much further. Her earliest Luna Park memory is of riding the Rotor, an upright rotating barrel, which closed in 1977 after 26 years. She recalls getting off and throwing up. Incidents involving children, junk food and spinning rides are known by staff as a “code rainbow”, and occur with “monotonous regularity”. A former teacher and union official, Stuart says running Luna Park was never on her to-do list. But when trucking magnate Lindsay Fox and partner Virtual Communities Limited bought it for a reported $8 million in 2005, she accepted an offer to come on board.“The brief was to find out what the problems were, and fix it,” she says.“It needed, and it still does need, a lot of investment.” The park has undergone major works since Stuart’s tenure began seven years ago. Lindsay Fox says preserving its heritage is important for future generations.“When we got involved it had been through a period where it hadn’t had a lot of love. We wanted to make sure it lasts another 100 years.” “Luna Park has been good to me,” says Fox, who recalls sneaking

UP TO SCRATCH: “There’s been a lot of blood, sweat and tears,’’ says maintenance manager Mark Harrison


JUST FOR FUN Everyone’s invited to join in the celebrations as Luna Park marks its big birthday: ■ December 10: Luna Park says a big thank you to local residents and businesses with free rides for all in the evening. ■ December 13: Catch Daryl Braithwaite, Anthony Callea and aerial acrobats Strange Fruit on the Centenary Community Day as the park marks its official 100th birthday.

There’ll be vintage stands, staff in costume, horses and carts, and Dixeland jazz. Be sure to visit the revived Tea Terrace. Saturday, 11am – 11pm, and Sunday, 11am – 8pm.

on to rides for free as a boy 67 years ago.“I have rich memories of growing up in this place. I took my six kids there and they take their kids there now.” In the longer term Fox says he’d like to make Luna Park part of a charitable trust that returns money to the community. He also plans to talk to the state government about incorporating Luna Park in a larger development of the St Kilda foreshore, similar to Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, which has theatres, concert halls, and an aquarium in an 8.5 hectare park.“There’s no reason why you couldn’t do something like that here.”

But keeping heritage alive doesn’t come cheap. The park has a staff of 200, including specialists such as architects and engineers. The iconic Mr Moon Face at the entrance had a few facelifts before it was finally replaced a few years ago. The Ghost Train, built in the 1930s, needs regular maintenance. Millions of dollars have been spent on the heritage-listed

carousel. Built in 1913, the 68 hand-carved wooden horses and two chariots were painstakingly stripped back and repainted in accordance with their original plans, obtained on a trip to the Philadelphia Toboggan Company headquarters in Pennsylvania a decade ago. Like many attractions at Luna Park, the merry-go-round is a functioning museum piece as much as it is a form of entertainment. Last year, part of the bridge under the park’s best-known ride – and the world’s oldest continually operating wooden roller coaster – the Great Scenic Railway, was completely rebuilt. Luna Park’s longest-serving employee, maintenance manager Mark Harrison, compares the rollercoaster to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. “There’s been a lot of blood, sweat and tears over that thing,” says Harrison, who started out 22 years ago as a ride operator on the Disco Swing, now known as the G-Force.“It’ll never be finished. There’s always something to do to

keep it up to scratch.” Still considered a feat in engineering, the rollercoaster’s track is perched atop 322 posts and held together with 12,800 screws. Unlike modern coasters, it operates on a cable car system where the train is winched to the highest peak before being released to the forces of gravity. For 100 years, highly skilled brakemen (and, these days, brakewomen) have ensured the safety of thrill-seeking patrons – is good news considering the train can still reach speeds of 60 kilometres an hour. Although the park lost it’s beloved Giggle Palace to a fire in the ’80s and no longer employs staff to scare visitors riding the Ghost Train, it has maintained a worldwide cult following. When film director Tim Burton visited Melbourne a couple of years ago and was asked by the state government what he wanted to do during his trip, visiting Luna Park was the one and only destination on his list.

Big mouth moments Six of Luna Park’s best known fans share their memories of the St Kilda icon. By Matthew Eade

ANTHONY CALLEA, singer

KATE CEBERANO, singer

I remember driving past as a kid with my brother and sister in the back seat, fighting, but when we’d get close to Luna Park we’d stop because we wanted to come in! I think as a kid I had more guts to go on rides because now I’m usually the person at the bottom holding the bags and eating a bucket of hot chips.

Luna Park to me means recreation, St Kilda style. I’ve spent many idle days riding the Scenic Railway, pashing on the Ghost Train and bringing up my lunch after the Rotor – heaven and hell in one place! Happy birthday old girl, you don’t look a day over 90!

MICHAEL GUDINSKI, music promoter I’ve been called a big mouth, but this is the real big mouth. I remember the Big Dipper, but my greatest memories are with my wife on the Scenic Railway. In fact, the legendary Skyhooks Horror Movie clip was filmed here. It certainly put Mushroom Records on the map. It’s great that they’ve restored the park and are keeping it moving. Kylie would love the carousel, she loves carousels.

SPENCER McLAREN, actor I have always been a huge fan of rollercoasters, so when I moved to Melbourne at 14 I was so excited to discover we had one in our own backyard. Luna Park became a staple through my teen years as the place to just “hang” and annoy the adults. It was also the place to make yourself sick after going round and round and round on all the rides.

LINDSAY FOX, trucking magnate and Luna Park co-owner I’ve been coming to Luna Park for 67 years. As a kid I’d come in through the gates and there’d be the whiff of waffles, then we’d stop at the milkbar for the best milkshakes in town. From there we’d head around the back of the Giggle Palace, where you could sneak in for free and then we’d head to the Big Dipper. Then there were the River Caves where more young men felt the breasts of more young women than just about any other place. Luna Park has been good to me.

MARY STUART, Luna Park executive director When I was younger my grandma lived on Canterbury Road and being able to come to Luna Park was a huge treat. I remember after some fairy floss and a ride on the Rotor I did actually throw up, but I managed to get off the ride first!

Members of the public can enter a ballot to win free admission and access to all rides at Luna Park on December 13. The community day, marking the park’s centenary, includes entertainment by Daryl Braithwaite and Anthony Callea. The ballot closes on December 2. Visit lunapark.com.au to register. NOVEMBER 21, 2012

ARI HATZIS

ow home to St Kilda’s Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, the stunning Italianate mansion at 26 Acland Street was originally home to German textile businessman Moritz Michaelis (1820–1902). Linden, meaning lime tree, remained in the Michaelis family until 1957, when it was sold and turned into a private hotel. St Kilda City Council bought the building in 1983 and the non-profit arts centre and gallery opened three years later.

Name: Autumn Breed: Chihuahua mix Sex: Female (desexed) Age: 10 years (approx) Adorable Autumn is an older dog who may be shy at first, but will come out of her shell with patience and love. She is an ideal match for someone who can offer a quiet and loving home. Potential adoptees will need to keep in mind that she may require veterinary treatment for agerelated conditions such as arthritis and heart disease. Do not let this deter you though, Autumn has many wonderful years ahead.

All dogs at The Lost Dogs’ Home are $300, are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and come with one free obedience lesson. Please note Autumn may have been adopted since going to press. There are many more dogs like her in need of a home.

‘T

he harder you fall the higher you bounce’’ is the catchy motto on the walls and staff T-shirts at this trampoline heaven. Bouncing off the walls is highly encouraged at Bounce, the latest fad for kids’ parties, teenage shenanigans and adult free-jumping on more than 100 interconnected trampolines, two dodgeball courts and 500 square metres of foam

pits. One of the owners,Antony Morell, says:‘‘It’s based on a fusion of ideas.There are elements borrowed from circus, dodgeball from America, and ideas from airborne sports.’’ The Aussie venture opened about three months ago and birthday parties are booked out until next year.

The verdict

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

Six children and three adults in our birthday party pull on Bounce grip socks and hit the ground bouncing. First up are the long trampolines that end in glorious foam pits that call for all sorts of acrobatics. Free-jumping trampolines are next, followed by the performance area, before the group hits the dodgeball court. After two hours of non-stop flying through the air, the kids still want more, but we can’t extend our time. Book ahead to avoid disappointment. 14 PORT PHILLIP REVIEW LOCAL

T

of his egalitarian attitude to an art form that can seem exclusive. It is this fresh approach, along with his enthusiasm for exploring new ideas, that has gained the dance company a new following. Ticket sales have jumped nearly 50 per cent since Bonachela came on board in 2009. His latest production, 2 One Another, uses poetry and narration as a backdrop to the physical expression of the dance world. The piece was largely experimental, defined only by Bonachela’s determination to base it on the 16 dancers who feature in the work. ‘‘I decided that all the vocabulary, the material, and the content had to come from within the four walls of the studio,’’ he says. Bonachela invited poet Samuel Webster to observe the dancers

absorbed in various exercises, one of which involved pairs in a “silent conversation that was driven through movement”. “Sam’s mission was to watch that conversation and interpret it,” Bonachela says.“He wrote the most wonderful, amazing, evocative and rich text about things that he saw.” This sparked a kind of dialogue between the poet and the performers, with the dancers re-interpreting the words into movement and also recording parts of the poetry which composer Nick Wales then “wove into the music to give it texture”. The resulting work is about “16 individuals who have different personalities, different ways of moving, different ways of approaching things” – but at the same time, Bonachela emphasises

that dance doesn’t have to be about anything. He says much of the joy comes from letting the imagination run wild when watching a performance. “The great and positive thing is that so many people have stopped me after the SDC shows,” he says. “I remember this guy going, ‘Mate, I’ve never been to a dance show, my girlfriend brought me and I didn’t know what it was about but I loved it’, and I was like,‘that’s great’, because it’s the best thing when you are just free to imagine.” LEEYONG SOO

he Sydney Dance Company is known for its contemporary productions which attract widespread critical acclaim, and star-studded premieres. So why is its artistic director, Rafael Bonachela, 40, so eager to impress a bunch of kindergarten kids? ‘‘Everyone gets a Shakespeare play, everyone goes to see football, everyone knows about sports, but what about dance?’’ Bonachela says, explaining he has plans for performances for three-year-olds. “Sometimes people can be scared of contemporary dance. I understand, because dance is not in the curriculum in Australia but hopefully that’s changing. In 2014 or maybe next year we’re having our first preschool matinee.” The Barcelona-born choreographer’s interest in educating the public is indicative

The place to be on opening night last Thursday was the LaurentPerrier Lounge, where the mood was as bubbly as the plonk. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Yenny Huber didn’t know what she fancied more, the gourmet nibbles or the bloke serving them. She’s with good friend Kyla Kirkpatrick, aka Champagne Dame. Agnes Hon is a blogger. Who isn’t these days? Life’s tough for Taste of Melbourne regulars Paul Meulblok and Raphaela Lesmono. Two-year-old Lola enjoyed an ‘armchair’ ride with dad, Peter Liem, from Livingroom restaurant. Nuno Mendes (left) is the much vaunted head chef of London’s Viajante restaurant. David Reyne was once in a band called Takeaways in a show called Sweet and Sour. Is anyone seeing the synergy here?

GOING ONLINE Looking for change, DAVID JANOVIC of St Kilda left his desk job to start a business selling desks, among other things

G

ood business never goes out of style. It’s the attitude David Janovic had in mind when he left his position at global investment banking and securities ďŹ rm Goldman Sachs to realise his dreams and start an online furniture business. “I was quite despondent in my job,â€? he says.“I decided that instead of being in the corporate world, I’d pursue what had been a keen interest of mine.â€? Bringing vintage and retro inspiration to contemporary designs, retrojan.com.au stocks a range of chairs, tables, desks and homewares, in styles that range from Scandinavian to shabby chic.

towel at Goldman Sachs and give this a red-hot go.â€? Janovic says selling online is an efďŹ cient business model. “We’re direct from the factories to the consumer.â€? he says.“People are willing to purchase online without having seen the furniture.â€?

KRISTIAN SCOTT

Cricket club thrives with a coach from ... Denmark BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au IN MARCH, as the top four sides in the Longmuir Shield played finals, Elwood players and staff could do nothing but watch after winning just two games for the year. Change was needed. So the club, seeking to make a mark in the City of Moorabbin Cricket Association’s top flight, recruited a coach from, of all places, Denmark. Leg-spinner Ajay Bobby Chawla had been representing Denmark for more than a decade and at 29 wanted to develop his coaching. He applied for the Elwood job and was delighted when they responded. “I applied online and Elwood got back to me and it seemed to be a really good fit,” he says. “There are a lot of good young players here who need to be looked after and managed and that appealed to me. It’s a very professional, well-run club.”

This season, with Chawla as playing coach, the Elwood first XI has won three of four games and sits fourth on the Longmuir Shield table. Chawla has five wickets and two half-centuries and is feeling good about himself. ‘‘I feel like I’m at the top of my game at the moment,” he says. Chawla arrived in Australia on September 20 and works as a mortgage broker in Brighton. Prior to that, he was playing with Denmark in the ICC World Cricket League Division 4 in Malaysia. Chawla took six wickets at an average of 25.16 as Denmark finished fourth of six teams. “I have been blessed playing for Denmark,” he says. “It has taken me all over the world.” Denmark was once in Division 1 of the ICC World Cricket League but Chawla says the country lost of a lot of good players. But he believes things will turn around as more money is invested. “I do see Denmark being more

than a fringe team,” he says. “We’re trying to be a bit more professional in everything we do.” He says the turnaround at Elwood has come with greater discipline. “I come from a more professional world of cricket, where you need to be training and performing well to get picked,” he says. “I’m big on discipline and structure. At first some of the players didn’t know what I was doing but we’re seeing results. “A lot of guys are getting runs and bowling better and I’m told the fielding has lifted on last season.” As for himself: “I feel pretty good. I think as a spinner you mature as you get older and my batting and bowling have come a long way.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Port on top as bowlers do their bit

BRIEFS

Teen spins Saints to win ARI HATZIS

PORT Melbourne will be feeling content after day one of the clash with Mentone in the south division of the Victorian Turf Cricket Association. Sent into the field, the perennial finalists bowled out Mentone out for 171, with only three batsmen passing five. Opener Karinjit Bansal was run out two runs short of his halfcentury, which included seven fours. Teenage wicketkeeper Jordan Young was the best with the bat for Mentone, making 75 from 143 balls before being caught by Mark Lugg. Adnan Khawaja was terrific with the ball for Port Melbourne. As the fifth bowler brought into the attack, he bowled 22.2 overs and took 4-23, including 12 maidens. He took the crucial wicket of Dane Heverin, another teenager, who made a stubborn 32 from 151 balls as Mentone tried to save its innings. Port Melbourne president Alec Hill said Josh Boyle gave his bowling performance for some time to take 2-37 from 17 overs. After nine overs he had the economical figures of 1-11. Port Melbourne faced four overs at the end the day and lost Brad Sutcliffe for one, caught off Bansal’s first ball. Mark Towson and Lugg will resume next week with the score at 1/5. Port’s second XI finished the day 7/148 from its 80 overs, a small total given they batted the entire day against tight Mentone bowling.

MATCH REPORT

■ THIRDS FOILED Melbourne’s third XI declared just 15 ahead on first innings as it chased an outright victory but had to be content with the six points as Footscray held them off in the second innings with 172. Brendan Huf and Max Tomkinson both made 45 for the Demons while Sam Brewin finished the fortnight with total figures of 6-61. The fourth XI won.

GOT HIM: St Kilda players celebrate the wicket of Chris McCormick, LBW to Lachlan Graf for five BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au TEENAGE leg-spinner James Muirhead turned in a stunning seven-wicket display to bowl St Kilda to an easy Premier Cricket win over Frankston Peninsula on Saturday. The 19-year-old, who has been close to making his Sheffield Shield debut with Victoria this season, took 7-26 in 21 overs, two thirds of them maidens. With St Kilda bowling tightly from the outset at Junction Oval, it soon became apparent Frankston would be searching for a draw rather than a win, with the Saints’ mammoth firstweek total of 339 a bridge too far.

But the visitors did start reasonably well, openers Matthew Lineker (52) and Ben Hillard (20) putting on 38 for the first wicket before Hillard was caught. Lineker battled hard for the visitors and remained top-scorer. The killer for Frankston was losing 5/16 barely halfway through the day as they slumped to 7/116. The loss of Rob Salerni brought Matthew Gapes and Jack Benbow to the crease. The pair started slowly, mainly blocking and leaving against Muirhead’s spin and Daniel Mueller’s pace before Gapes eventually lifted the tempo to score a valuable 36. But when he left, LBW to Lachlan Graf, Muirhead wrapped up the last

two wickets to complete one of the best performances in Premier Cricket this season. ELSEWHERE, Melbourne passed Footscray Edgewater’s total of 242 for the loss of five wickets at Merv Hughes Oval. The Demons lost an early wicket, Rob Cooper for nine, but otherwise it was largely easy going. Mathew Begbie was cruelly denied a century, bowled by Ben Green for 99, while Michael Hill fell agonisingly short of a half-century, bowled by Travis Dean for 47. At the crease to guide Melbourne to the win was Brenton McDonald (43 not out) and William Ryan (13 not out). SCOREBOARD, Page 22

Brown fires Port Melbourne to six wins from six PLAYING coach Vic Brown had a day to remember as Port Melbourne made it six wins from six games in the women’s summer baseball league with a 9-0 win over Springvale’s second team on Saturday. Brown pitched the entire game for 12 strike-outs in what she described as one of her best games. Playing away, Port Melbourne scored two runs in the top of the first inning before shutting Springvale out in the bottom and from

■ DEMONS DO IT Melbourne’s second XI lost just five wickets on its way to chasing down Footscray Edgewater’s big total of 328 in Premier Cricket. Matthew Brown made 131 and Travis Jackson 71 – the pair putting on 181 for the fourth wicket – to set up the win for the Demons.

there scored consistently in the third, fourth, fifth and seventh innings. “I was very happy with the win,” Brown said. “I had a very good day and I’d say it’s probably my best performance although as a team we were better against Waverley the week before. ‘‘That game was much closer, with more tension, and we had better all-round defence.” Port Melbourne will attempt to

keep its perfect season rolling on when it travels to play Werribee on Saturday. Brown said much of the game would depend on whether Werribee’s first-choice pitcher, Emma Pastowski, plays. “She is their best pitcher and it depends on that,” Brown said. “Sometimes they can be a quality side and sometimes they can really struggle.” Brown said Lauren Gibson would

be the starting pitcher against Werribee after some good form at training. Port will then host strugglers Essendon at home before a tough assignments against premiers and competition heavyweights Doncaster, which is also unbeaten, and last season’s runners-up Springvale. at home. In the last match before Christmas the club will play Doncaster’s second team.

■ LATE FIGHTBACK FAILS St Kilda’s second XI lost to Frankston Peninsula, bowled out for 243 chasing 6/287 despite 62 by both Lewis Mildenhall and Tom Morris.
