EDITOR’S DESK I’m not a big one for New Year’s resolutions. I prefer to follow the maxim that each day is the start of the rest of my life, full of possibilities and opportunities for change. Even so, there’s something about the start of a new year that gets us all reflecting on how we might change things for the better. So, as 2017 kicks off, it seems like an ideal time to refresh The Weekly Review Review. We’re still committed to celebrating the best of Melbourne: the people, food and wine, entertainment, property and all that makes this great city tick. But we’re also excited to introduce several new features, including The View, a pictorial celebration of the city, next to this column each week. We’re also delighted to welcome our new food editor, Sofia Levin, and we’re showcasing the city’s talented artisans on our new Made in Melbourne page. There’s much more, too, so check it out inside. ●

FEBRUARY 1, 2017 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 5


SARAH HARRIS charts the twists and turns of Meshel Laurie’s path to enlightment

M

eshel Laurie has never been one to take the easy way out, not even when faced with the fraught scenario of a dead dog and a pair of second graders. The ebullient radio and television star laughingly recalls her efforts to explain the expiry of the family shih tzu to son Louie and daughter Dali, her now-seven-year-old twins, in accordance with her Buddhist beliefs. “When Britney died I had to try and talk them through cyclic existence and I was like, oh God! I just wanted to say she has gone to heaven and we will all see her again one day at a big party in the sky, but I couldn’t.” Honesty is important to Meshel, whether it is in matters of faith, taking on trolls, or calling out racism and sexism. “In a way, Buddhism is about reality. Existence is suffering, which sounds incredibly nihilistic, like I might as well just give up now. But the fact is, suffering happens, you can’t avoid it. It is part of life,” she says. Meshel has had quite a big serve of reality in the past few years. Her sudden axing by Nova in late 2015, after delivering sustained No. 1 results in three different slots for the network over 13 years, hurt her deeply. She was immediately snapped up by KIIS to go head-to-head against her old station with co-host Matt Tilley. Matt & Meshel In The Morning snagged a respectable share of the breakfast ratings last year and held ground going into 2017 – although there’s still a considerable way to go to catch up with slot leaders 3AW and ABC Radio Melbourne. It’s a challenge Meshel relishes. “I feel the opposite of big fish, small pond. I am a little guppy in this incredibly intense pool and that is something really exciting and motivating,” she says. “Obviously the big goal is out there, but feeling every day like you are chipping away at

believes, among other things, that the royal family are shape-shifting lizards – to Dr Susan Carland, Monash University lecturer and researcher and wife of The Project host Waleed Aly. Through her podcasts, Meshel has tackled topics as varied as organ donation and the rules divorcees should follow on dating app Tinder. Meshel also notably set up a GoFundMe campaign to pay for victims of child sex abuse to travel to Rome to hear evidence given by Cardinal George Pell to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The fund was intended to raise $55,000 but, with a little help from Tim Minchin and his song Come Home Cardinal Pell, it ultimately exceeded more than $200,000. “It was quite terrifying to have that in an account in my name,” Meshel says, laughing. It all came about because Meshel had travelled to Ballarat to see some friends do stand-up comedy and decided to use the spare hour in her hotel room to track down some interesting local people for her podcast. She’s a workaholic; it’s a statement she makes several times during the course of our interview. “I don’t want to sound like some jerk from West Hollywood who reckons they have got a disease when they are just badly behaved, but I do think there is an addictive element in it in so many ways and I have to watch it. And I have to accept the part my workaholism played in the break-up of my marriage.” Meshel and artist Adrian Lewinski were together for almost 20 years. They met in Brunswick during a Salvation Army-run program to help people get off the dole and were married six months later. Before meeting Adrian, Meshel seemed hell-bent on following the script of her favourite movie Dogs In Space (1986), pining for a junkie and occasionally using drugs herself. “I lived inside that movie. My dreams sleeping

it is exciting. That’s what gets me up in the morning.” The alarm goes off 4.20am every workday; Fridays, when she appears on Channel Ten’s The Project (aired live from 7pm in the eastern states) are very long indeed. Meshel also volunteers in palliative care, something she took up after working at night on Father Bob Maguire’s food trucks became too tricky with little kids. “I researched a lot of options and this was one that looked like I could do before the school pick-up,” she says with a wry chuckle. Her latest palliative patient, whom she’d visited for two years, died the day before we meet for this interview. “With palliative patients you have to have a certain mindset,” she says. “I never personalise it.” Then there’s the fortnightly podcasts for Mamamia Women’s Network. Meshel organises guests, interviews them, edits and produces Nitty Gritty Committee herself. “It lets me have longer conversations and explore things I know won’t fly on FM commercial radio,” the 43-year-old says. “You get frustrated sometimes when the best conversations are six minutes long.” Interviewees have included everyone from David Icke – the world’s most famous conspiracy theorist, who

and waking were about dark pubs with tiny stages, poverty, sniffling boyfriends. I couldn’t wait to get there. “My dreams protected me from the changing landscape of my family, the misplaced anger of dad, the disappointment of my mum, the wrongness of my body, the bitchiness of my friends and every other shitful aspect of my typical teenage years,” she wrote in her 2013 memoir The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny Destiny.

6 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ FEBRUARY 1, 2017

A

lot of Meshel’s unhappiness was due to her deteriorating relationship with her father. Taxi driver Graham “Tubby” Laurie and the eldest of his three children are a lot alike in many ways. “Physically, certainly, I am more like him [than my mother Mary],” she says. “He has always been a very popular, entertaining character. I think I definitely picked that up from him. I think when you call yourself Tubby, you put this idea into the world that it is OK and you are not precious about yourself. It is sort of unbulliable and I think I picked that up from him.” But during the ’80s recession – carrying a lot of debt and paying crippling 18 per cent interest on his business and home – Tubby “turned into a bit of a monster”.

T

hese days Meshel, her parents and younger siblings Sherri and Pete all live in happy proximity around Altona, but back then Meshel yearned to escape her family and her home town of Toowoomba in Queensland. “I felt like I was a boring person, from a boring town,” she says. “I wanted to be exciting, rebellious and drugs seemed like a way to fix that. “I suffered, I think, a lot of mental illness as a result. I suffered depression. I gambled my mental health [with drugs] and could probably have saved myself a lot of mental anguish in my 20s and 30s.” At the University of Southern Queensland she spent more time on amateur pharmacology than on her art and drama studies. By her second year, substance abuse was starting to mess with her head and she went cold turkey, coming to her senses just in time to discover she could score a free bus trip to Melbourne – the destination of her dreams – if she joined the university socialist club. Returning to Toowoomba after the 1993 Socialist National Conference and a weekend that turned into almost a week, Meshel was convinced Melbourne was the place for her. While saving for the move interstate, she started volunteering at community radio Triple Z and hanging out at the Sit Down Comedy Club and, in March 1994, did her first stand-up gig at Famous Bob’s Steak House in Brisbane. More gigs followed and it wasn’t long before she was southward bound and became part of Melbourne’s coolest comedy scene at the Espy. Meshel’s first Melbourne International Comedy Festival outing in 1997 was with a show called Dairy Belles, written and performed with Corinne Grant, about two country girls who move to the city to become famous. Alas, the tale came only half true – at the end of the show’s run, just Corrine was picked up by

comedy management agency Token. It was the start of a pattern. Increasingly Meshel found herself being overtaken by other young talents and, when a friend told her about a receptionist job going at a brothel in Port Melbourne, she decided to take it. She worked in various parlours in the next few years, which gave her abundant material; her show The Whore Whisperer was a sell-out at the 2001 Melbourne and Edinburgh International Comedy Festivals, pulled crowds at the Adelaide Fringe festival the next year and eventually went on to run for three weeks at the Sydney Opera House. (She still has a whole unpublished book on the subject of Melbourne’s brothels, tentatively titled Sitting on a Gold Mine, tucked in her desk drawer.)

N

ow she was well and truly back on the comedy map, work offers flowed. In 2003 she began filling in for Kate Langbroek on the Nova 100 breakfast show. But, when she finally landed her own metro breakfast show in 2005 – after a stint in regional radio at Gosford – she was devastated to learn the gig was in Brisbane, not Melbourne. It was during those Brisbane years that Meshel was at her lowest ebb. She felt that returning to Queensland was a huge backward step. At first she maintained her national profile through regular appearances on Spicks and Specks and later Rove Live, but when Rove returned to air in 2007 after a hiatus, Meshel found she no longer had a weekly spot. “I ended up in this deep depression and couldn’t pull myself out of it and I decided to go to the Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre. I looked on the website and saw they had this one class at 10.30 on Tuesday morning called Dealing With Negative Emotions. I thought that has got me written all over it, because I was not only depressed,

“i spent so much of my life trying to get famous … now you have to drag me to a red carpet” but I was feeling anger, resentment, hatred.” Buddhism has given Meshel a fresh perspective, but it is not without its struggles. “I am in transition very, very clearly to myself,” she says. “It is a strange dichotomy having spent so much of my life trying to get famous to the point where I don’t want to be interviewed and you have to drag me to a red carpet.” These days she finds great outlet in writing and painting, and dreams of an old age spent “cooking and sweeping for monks”. Her new book Buddhism for Break-ups is a distillation of the feelings of sadness, jealousy and loss run through the filter of Eastern philosophy. Meshel is also in the process of setting up an online dharma centre and “would like to do Buddhist stand-up and write a show that is both teaching and really funny”. Well, zen, watch this space. ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au » Join Meshel on KIIS 101.1 for Matt & Meshel from 6am weekdays. » Buddhism for Break-ups by Meshel Laurie, published by Nero, RRP $29.99 » meshellaurie.com FEBRUARY 1, 2017 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 7


SARAH HARRIS ASKS AUSTRALIA’S MOST FAMOUS FUTURIST WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THIS YEAR & BEYOND

WHAT LIES AHEAD D emographer Bernard Salt found himself at the centre of a storm late last year when millennials failed to see the irony in his remarks about their tendency to spend money on smashed avocado instead of saving for a house. If anything, “avogate” underscored his serious point about the growing chasm between the generations, and the haves and the have-nots in our society. Here the KPMG futurist shares his thoughts on what lies ahead.

I do see a divided community – those who have bought into the property market and those who haven’t, for whatever reason. I don’t think Melbourne is any different from Manhattan Island, London or Paris. Not everyone working in New York under the age of 35 has an expectation that they will be able to buy an apartment on Manhattan Island.

HOME OWNERSHIP & HIPSTERS


In Tokyo, in London, you accept the fact you rent. On one hand we proudly say Melbourne is a global city, but that means the price of property rises because you are competing with people with global incomes. That then relegates locals further out. The goat’s cheese curtain is moving. Bentleigh now has one of Melbourne’s hippest cafes. I mean Centre Road, Bentleigh, that’s like east of Brighton. It might be that by 2025 the hipster zone extends to Burwood.

ENTREPRENEURS RULE

BREAK K POINT

MY TIME NOW MY

There is a break point coming, when baby boomers will cede authority to a new generation, whether it is X or Y. The oldest baby boomers were born in 1946, so this year they are 71. The midpoint of the generation is pushing into their 60s. It is time for this generation to move on and we are seeing that in budgets, in calls for higher superannuation and houses to be included in taxable assets for pension allocation. Baby boomers have circled the wagons. At some point they must give way, youth must win out and I think what lies beyond 2017 is an X and Y world.

Bucket list thinking is driving a group I call MYTNs – My Time Now. They have paid off the mortgage, the kids have left home and they are doing Rhine River and Alaskan cruises and having their kitchens made over. At the extreme edge of MYTN philosophy, people are re-evaluating their relationships. I think we will see a spate of de-partnering. Increasingly that decision will be made by women who have their own superannuation and income. It might mean travelling or bushwalking with friends, because it is more engaging than sitting at home with someone who doesn’t want to do anything. ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

More people will go to regional centres and start their own businesses. One of the strongest themes of the past two years has been small business development. It’s a combination of intellectual capacity being released into the market after the mining boom, and people in their late 50s and early 60s saying they are not ready to retire, and going into business for themselves.

CBD and relocate to Daylesford or Torquay and do your job from there for at least part of the week. Location is vital; you can’t e-change in Nhill or Dimboola, you need to be within a reasonable distance of Melbourne, but not necessarily on a daily commute. Those cute towns in the goldfields will be talking about Melbourne e-changers into the future.

CHANGING OF THE GUARD It might be that 2017 is a year of consolidation, but it strikes me there is a mood for change, whether that is political, which would come in 2018-19, or whether it is social or generational. The avocado row simply triggered the festering resentment in a generation. I think a large proportion of the

population, baby boomers and me included, was not aware of the extent of the sentiment. I am concerned we are creating a double society. The old way, the old regime, the old logic is not meeting expectations. That was evident in 2016 with Trumpism and in Brexit. We would be foolhardy to say it does not affect us here.

FEBRUARY 1, 2017 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9


Ask the wine guy opened a bottle of wine for I ’vecooking; how long will it be good for? you go by the adage “if it’s not good Iforfenough to drink, it’s not good enough food”, you need to use it quite quickly. Wine starts to deteriorate the moment the bottle is opened and after two days it has usually started to oxidise – it’s similar to the way a sliced apple goes brown – and is beyond its best. You can slow oxidisation by keeping the bottle in the fridge (even for reds), but if you want to cook with the wine, pour it into an ice cube tray and pop it into the freezer. It will keep for months. ●

Bleasdale Frank Potts 2014 (Langhorne Creek) $35; 14%

Rameau d’Or Rose 2015 (Cotes de Provence) $20; 12.5%

From the cold Victorian Alps comes a compelling wine that’s all restraint and composure. Stonefruit, spice and lemon aromas are complex and a little hedonistic, with flavours that are rich and intense. Its balance is seamless with those concentrated flavours kept in check by acid that plays a background role – every element working in harmony. ●

File this under large. It’s a blend of cab sav, malbec, merlot, petit verdot and cab franc that will have lovers of big reds hooked from the first sniff of its blackberry, plum vanilla and tobacco aromas. It starts out fresh in the mouth, before a wall of tannins and dense dark berries and mocha comes galloping through. ●

Pale pink rose from Provence is such a lovely thing. This smells and tastes of Turkish delight, cherries and watermelon – everything you expect and hope for from rose’s spiritual home – delivered with texture and complexity. It’s not totally dry, but refreshing and lengthy all the same, with a hint of honeysuckle on the lengthy finish. ●

Prepare for grassfire If you live in a suburb near grasslands, you’re at risk of fire. If you live directly next to parks or paddocks and a grassfire starts, walk at least two streets back. If you live two or more streets away, stay where you are, grassfires are unlikely to spread into built up areas. Stay alert and monitor conditions. Don’t drive, visibility may be poor, accidents are likely, and you could block emergency services.

he woman beside me on the jade banquette is mid coughing fit. Her husband hasn’t flinched but, at two-week-old Long Chim, a cough symbolises success. David Thompson has a global reputation for not dumbing down food. He acquired it at Nahm, his Bangkok fine-diner (No. 37 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list) and later at Long Chim eateries in Singapore, Perth and Sydney. Now he’s bringing his street-inspired authenticity to Melbourne’s Crown precinct. Diners on a suicide spice mission start with larp, a minced chicken salad. Among the tangle of eight fresh Asian herbs and 20-spice powder from Bangkok, crunchy chicken skin evokes rotisserie memories – until scud chilli hits. See coughing woman. If you can’t stand the heat, grilled pork skewers balance singe and sweet; mashed prawn and turmeric curry subdues spice with coconut; and DIY condiments permit chilli control over the must-order charred rice noodles. Failing that, cool off with durian ice-cream. The fruit is banned on public transport in parts of Asia due to its smell, which is likened to dirty socks and decaying flesh. My advice? Eating should be an experience – make it one. ● slevin@theweeklyreview.com.au

sually, nobody gets impatient for the Mormons to come knocking, but it seems like a very long wait since the Australian premiere of this hit Broadway musical was announced. Can it live up to such extended hype? In Melbourne for the final week of

rehearsals, American director Casey Nicholaw insists he’s anxiety free. “There was a little anxiety with London because we didn’t know how it would be perceived in a different country,� Casey says. “But it went so well there I think we feel pretty good about here, knowing the audience response will basically be the same.�' Chances are, he’s right to play it cool. Written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park fame and featuring music by Robert Lopez (who most famously co-wrote Frozen earworm Let It Go), the show was an instant hit on its Broadway debut in 2011. It won a Grammy and nine Tony Awards before opening in London’s West End to similar acclaim. It has smashed box office records the world over and, judging by presales (it’s more or less booked out until March), Melbourne looks set to follow suit. Part of the show’s success, Casey says, is that it draws in people who would usually avoid stage musicals. “There are lots of musical theatre fans who are diehards, who will make the time to fly to

’TIS PITY Victorian Opera unleashes its 2017 season with this new collaboration between OPERA the company’s artistic director Richard Mills and internationally renowned cabaret star Meow Meow. The flamboyant song cycle traces the fortunes of working girls throughout history, from Ishtar to the internet – with all the salaciousness, complexities and hypocrisies that involves. Traditionally extravagant operatics will be complemented by more exotic elements, such as the ondes martenot (a complicated early electronic keyboard). ■ Melbourne Recital Centre, February 4-8, $62-$128, victorianopera.com.au MANCHESTER BY THE SEA The more glamorous (and FILM frankly more fun) La La Land has drowned out some of the Oscar buzz this superb, sombre drama earned on last year’s festival circuit, but it remains a film of extraordinary power. Casey Affleck is spellbinding as angry janitor Lee, called home to take legal custody of his dead brother’s teenage son. There are scores to settle, but nothing is easily settled here. Instead, director Kenneth Lonergan weaves a tale as messy and uncertain as life. ■ Opens February 2, MA15+, 135 minutes, manchesterbytheseathemovie.com URSULA MARTINEZ: CABARET FREE ADMISSION Midsumma winds up this week, but not before British burlesque star Ursula Martinez struts into town with a provocative new show that inverts the notion of the striptease.

Rachel (Emily Blunt) has developed an unhealthy obsession with her ex-husband’s neighbours. But when she sees something that suggests their home life isn’t as perfect as she hopes, she stumbles into a dizzying murder mystery. This thriller puts a pleasing spin on the iffy politics of Gone Girl, but doesn’t quite match it for excitement. And even a top notch cast can’t quite disguise some whopping plot holes and contrivances. ●

Having launched on Australia Day, this new streaming service has the admirable goal of making available – at the click of a button – every Aussie film ever made. More than 200 of the 2000 Australian movies in existence are already on the site, alongside specially created programs hosted by experts in our nation’s cinema.

The Dangers of Truffle Hunting by Sunni Overend harpercollins.com.au

This saucy read from Melbourne author Sunni offers an irresistible recipe likely to appeal to romantics and foodies alike. Kit has the perfect life sorted, but is starting to wonder if perfection is everything it’s cut out to be. Instead, she finds herself seduced by dark stranger Raph. Their illicit (and perhaps ill-advised) romance is seasoned by lush descriptions of delicious pastries. Perfect for a last fling with summer holiday reading. ●

CD

Kasey Chambers \ Dragonfly (Warner) kaseychambers.com Fans have had a long wait since Kasey’s last LP, but Dragonfly goes some way to rewarding this patience by being two albums in one, born from two separate studio sessions. The first disc is produced by Paul Kelly (who duets with Kasey on delightful hoedown Hey Hey), the second by her long-time collaborator and brother Nash. Together they amount to a sometimes stark, frequently beautiful volume of timeless country and gospel. ●

A COFFEE WITH … ANGIE HART

A

ngie Hart toys with kimchi brown rice while pondering a twist on the old desert-island chestnut – what would she choose, Spotify or a crammed bookshelf? “The books,” she decides. “I’d miss music, but songs are forever in my head. Desert-island reading? Bliss.” Then she adds: “Any chance of a guitar or stationery instead?” We’re in Mixed Business, a Clifton Hill haven where the former Frente! frontwoman’s decaf lattes aren’t questioned. It’s also where she best tackles her fear of leaving home, triggered partly by a friend’s death in 2013; a still-delicate wound. But then, Angie, 44, has spent years mining painful emotions: in song, poetry, and now, as co-curator of Women of Letters, through a waning medium given new life.  “Letters are the vinyl albums of literature,” says Angie, who in her new role selects prominent women to read aloud letters on a chosen topic at often sold-out WOL events. Founded in 2010 by writers Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire, WOL is now a literary juggernaut with sister events in New York, Indonesia and Ireland.  “With social media comes yearning for the opposite, more meaningful exchanges,” says Angie. “Our meetings are unrecorded, intimate one-offs, like letters themselves.”

Angie, a committed writer, spoke at the inaugural WOL event and gladly accepted the baton from Michaela, who recently moved on to head the Sydney Writers’ Festival. She feels old, but doesn’t look it. Lose the grey and Angie could almost play herself in a biopic of indie darlings Frente!, whose breezy 1990s pop (remember Ordinary Angels?) was a platinum-selling alternative to grunge. She’s wrestling with an autobiography about those days. “It’s like songwriting,” says Angie, who is also recording her third solo album. “There’s an initial burst of inspiration, then you write some crap tunes that you have to dig your way through.” There with figurative shovels are husband Blair, their two-year-old daughter (a surprise after years of IVF torment), and a network of local music collaborators, including fellow members of acapella outfit Ladychoir. A pretty manic life can’t stifle the laughter. If only there was more downtime. “I recently went to our magical backyard shed and unwrapped The Hollow of the Hand, PJ Harvey’s book,” Angie says. “It drove home why words matter. I sat there absorbed. I’d love more quiet time alone like that.” ● Words and pictures by STEVE McKENZIE

➾ BREW HA HA MIXED BUSINESS ● 486 Queens Parade, Clifton Hill ● mixedbusinesscafe.com THE VIBE \ Light and airy, with cheery staff who neither hover nor judge, be it Angie’s decafs or my aversion to dairy. THE BREW \ There’s a lovely, subtle bitterness to my long black made with Seven Seeds’ ethically sourced house blend, and impressive latte art on Angie’s foam. 

LOOK OUT FOR R … The next Women of Letters event is on Sunday, February 26, 3-5pm at the Thornbury Theatre. Tickets: thethornburytheatre.com

THE FOOD \ Scrumptious chicken roll with aioli for me; Kimchi fried brown rice for Angie. She also rates the “yummy” potato rosti with poached egg and avocado. ●

THE PROMISE

THE REALITY

Co-owners Andrew Moore and Nitel Mimi welcome me and hand me a neat bundle that includes a bathrobe, woollen mittens, thick socks, earmuffs and some fluff-lined shoes. At the cryogenic chamber, Andrew asks what song I’d like to have played while I’m in there. I go for Maggie Rogers’ Alaska – upbeat yet chilled, and vaguely ice-themed. “Don’t worry,” says Andrew, “It’s not as cold as you’d think.” I take off my robe as Nitel measures my skin temperature: 33 degrees. Once inside, I realise Andrew was wrong: it’s much colder than I expected. I try to focus on breathing, the music and gentle movements as a layer of ice starts forming on

I warm up on an exercise bike. My second session is tougher than the first, while the third feels like a breeze (probably because I selected a hip-hop tune).

What she makes Lindy’s range includes handwash, body lotion, hand treatments and a body oil in scents including pink grapefruit, lemon myrtle and eucalyptus. She makes all her products with natural ingredients such as cocoa butter, sweet almond oil and pure essential oils.

“People don’t realise the toxins they’re putting into their bodies, so it’s really important people get into the natural stuff. It’s easy to do now – and affordable,” Lindy says. “The natural ingredients are good for you, and also good for the waterways.” More than just delicious-smelling, all-natural skincare, Ena products are also packaged to look stylish in your home. Lindy enlisted local graphic design Ortolan to create her fashionable and artistic labels, and Melbourne company synergy to supply the bottles and jars. “I knew that the design had to be beautiful, so that was really my edge more than anything,” Lindy says. “I thought there’s no reason why you can’t have incredible style and have natural ingredients. I wanted the products to be really sleek and smart and pop out.” Where to find it Ena products range from $11-$40 and are stocked in shops across Australia. The brand is growing rapidly – much to Lindy’s surprise. “I’ve gone from having a goal of 12 stockists by the end of last year to having 21 now,” she says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG jclegg@theweeklyreview.com.au

➾ M AKER’S M ARK Ena natural skincare products by Lindy Lloyd ● enaproducts.com.au ● Instagram: @enaproducts (MICHAEL RAYNER)

Meet the maker In 2002, Lindy Lloyd was working as a massage therapist when she took a course on making skincare products. She started trialling her own recipes in the kitchen of her Brunswick West home, and testing them out on her clients and friends. “It was like a little lab, with just me,” Lindy says. “I started adding different creams. I wanted the consistency to be really rich and thick, but still soak in and, because it’s natural, it does.” Lindy eventually gave up massage therapy to start a family, but kept tinkering with her skincare recipes. At the end of 2015, just as her daughter Bianca was ready to start school, Lindy officially launched Ena. “Ena was my grandmother’s name, so it’s dear to my heart. She was a beautiful, soft, kind-hearted person. I never heard her raise her voice. And she had beautiful skin.”

WHAT AT INSPIRES ME A

“My grandmother. Her name was Ena, so it really helps me honour the product and gives me great pride.”

Kakadu \ Perhaps because human culture at Kakadu dates back 50,000 years, some Australians tend to take it for granted, or assume there’s no rush to visit. But the very fact that there’s tens of thousands of years of human history in this 20,000-square-kilometre park, and that the millennia are documented in rock paintings accessible to everyone, and that Aboriginal lore and learning is still passed down orally generation after generation … well, there’s nowhere else in the world where you can stand in the 21st century and experience that living, breathing bond with a culture whose unbroken links date back deep into prehistory. Kakadu is a once-in-a-lifetime, unique-on-theplanet experience, and it’s right here in our backyard. Go see the ancestors. ● kakadutourism.com

Peace has reigned on this pearl of the Indian Ocean for almost eight years and Sri Lanka is shining brighter than it has in decades. Colombo is a hive of new hotel activity: the Shangri-La, Sheraton and Grand Hyatt are all due to debut in 2017, and there are rumours Raffles might move into the old Cargills Department Store in Fort. However, it’s small, independent accommodation that’s turning heads around the island, from Taru Villas’ two elegant conversions of centuries-old Dutch mansions in Galle, to restored tea planters’ bungalows in the high country and chic safari lodges such as Chena Huts, sandwiched between ocean and action at Yala National Park, home of the leopard. ●

Canada Happy birthday to our northern cousin Canada, celebrating 150 years of federation in this year. A multitude of events are planned but, frankly, spring and summer in Canada always feel like one big party – it’s going to be tough to tell the special events from everyday Canadian carousing.

also its 10th poorest nation, and the trials of Madagascar turn many off visiting. But this year there are 14 good reasons to reconsider: that’s how many villas make up Miavana, the just-opened private island off Madagascar’s northern tip. The emphasis is on pampered isolation, pristine beaches and heli-transfers to the mainland in search of lemurs and the other extraordinary creatures and plants found nowhere else on Earth. The same owners run North Island in the Seychelles, where Prince William and Kate Middleton spent their honeymoon, so expect amenities fit for a (future) king. ●

Portugal Having recently done a road trip around Portugal (see Gourmet Traveller’s December 2016 edition), I can’t recommend the country highly enough. In high summer there are tourists, sure, but much of the land has that same uncrowded, laid back, surf-sand-and-sun vibe of Australia. There are many other aspects to this overlooked European gem that are sure to appeal to Australians: the obsession with great produce and delicious food, a thriving wine culture, a love of art, music and bar crawls, and more natural and man-made beauty than you can point a smartphone at. Plus, the people are lovely. Go now before everyone gets wise to Portugal’s winning ways. ●

Cuba Now that Americans can legally board flights to Cuba (thanks Barack Obama) the long-embargoed Caribbean island is set to be invaded by its curious neighbours.

Argentina Buenos Aires is an evergreen capital that will knock your socks off if it’s your first time, or charm your pants off (again) if you’ve been before. I’ve visited eight times – once for six weeks – and I still get excited about throwing myself headlong into its mixed-up, delicious mayhem. Every. Single. Time. For my next visit, I’m thinking I should detour to Salta and Jujuy, desert frontier towns with fascinating stories to tell, and to Mendoza to drown myself in top-flight wines. Argentina is vast and littered with landmarks, from Patagonia to Iguazu Falls to the pampas ranchlands. There really is something for everyone. ● ● argentina.travel/en

Tack on a side trip instead to Oman, which offers authentic Arabian Nights moments at desert fortresses and oases, dhow cruising with dolphins along the Musandam Peninsula and magical evenings in the whitewashed capital, Muscat, where the Al Hajar Mountains meet the Arabian Sea. ● ● tourismoman.com.au

Germany but represents a 10-grand saving on the cheapest competitive model from there. And it’s a nice place to be with excellent leather seating (go for an all-white interior if you promise not to get mud on your shoes), a generous slew of standard equipment and reasonably good room in the rear seat. However, the boot gets tight and it isn’t the greatest shape for packing stuff. It’s a most satisfying car to drive, being just as gentle or aggressive as you want. I found Eco mode a little annoying because the accelerator seems to fight you whenever you want to actually accelerate, but in normal mode the car rides and handles beautifully. It’s also easy to park with surround view imagery on the screen. Dial up Sport or Sport Plus and you’re in a completely different car. The acceleration is exhilarating, the grip is prodigious and the solidity is most reassuring. ●

(ISTOCK)

that goes from family to feral with a simple switch in driving modes. Choose from six, Standard to Sport Plus. Lots of cars have driving modes but these actually make a difference. The V6 is a gem, smooth and responsive with heaps of performance. There are two versions – 224 or 298 kilowatts. Both are eager and enthusiastic. In Standard mode it’s a comfortable family cruiser. In Sport Plus it’s, well, a rocket ship with cornering. It holds the gears, it tightens up the steering and it makes the suspension racetrack solid. It’s fabulous fun through twisty bits, but it rides hard. The steering is fast, communicative and accurate. The pioneering technology works wonderfully. And, get this; choose Eco mode and the accelerator gets heavier, pushing back when you’re wasting fuel. The V6 Q50 feels great. It will outrun practically anything this side of a turbo V8. ●

hile most home-buyers are sold on interiors, it’s only natural that garden designer and writer Michael McCoy and his wife Karen bought their family home in Woodend for love of a tree. The century-old oak tree was, and is, perfection. “It’s the quintessential childhood tree – many’s the time you’d walk past and see these little legs dangling,” the presenter of the ABC’s lush new Dream Gardens series says. “The house itself was pretty dreadful, with aluminium-framed windows and painted a very strange guacamole green. It was moved onsite in the early ’80s and then added to several times, completely senselessly, but I love that. The fact we have to go outside, to walk through the outdoors, to get to our bedroom, suits me very well.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

» Dream Gardens goes to air on ABC TV on February 9 at 8pm.

TREE The oak tree has been a major presence as long as anyone living around here can remember. Every now and then I say, ‘I can’t cope with this house any longer, there is too much to do’, and the kids go, ‘but what about the tree? You can’t leave the tree.’

CLOCK Prime minister Billy Hughes gave this clock to my great-uncle Tom. He travelled with him to the [post-WWI] peace talks in Versailles as his physiotherapist. Journalist and author Ray Stannard Baker, who also wrote as David Grayson, was there at the same time, with Woodrow Wilson’s press secretary.

These are from my mentors Christopher Lloyd and Jean Galbraith. They brought a level of inquiry to gardening that engaged me and were a huge influence. It was one of my proudest moments being published on the same page as Jean in The Age when I started writing.

This is a baby photo of my mother Dawn. Of course, I have never known her as anything other than a grown-up and I look at this and think is it possible my kids see me as a grown-up. I love the frame and the bubble glass. FEBRUARY 1, 2017 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 21

BLACKBURN \ 1/13 GLEN EBOR AVENUE

T

he kids are about to go back to school, most of us are back to the daily grind and that exquisite anticipation you get in mid-December at the prospect of long, lazy sunny summertime seems like some kind of cruel mirage. But it’s not over folks, for even as the tennis packs its net and cricket winds down its endless summer, we might not have every day, but we’ve still got the weekend. That’s why we can still look to houses like this one in Rye and dream … of languid weekends with family and friends and of making elaborate plans to do a lot of nothing for next year. This is just the place for it, too, for while there’s a plethora of activities here and all across the coast, you’d be just as happy to laze out on the expansive deck and watch the ships plough their watery course. Sitting up on this magical site, you can get an eyeful of all the majesty this part of the world has to offer. The view takes you from Arthurs Seat, crosses Main Ridge and runs to Cape Schanck, with sand dunes and seascapes between. It starts here at the bottom of the driveway where a gorgeous coastal garden begins and tracks up to the house. You can dive in here and stroll among the tea-trees, their knobby branches knitting together to create a most fabulous canopy. Up at the house, you can enter from the ground floor – an excellent space that contains a gym, cinema and study or office with separate entry. The central billiards or rumpus area is a ripper, with a bar and plenty of lounging room. When you’ve had enough of the fun and games, take the lift to the luxurious upper level. It’s here that the deck wraps three sides of the house and offers those glorious views. Formal entry is via an impressive staircase up and across the deck. A wing off the wide foyer takes you into a study, where selecting a volume from the book-lined walls, taking a comfy seat and facing the sea on a stormy day would be one of life’s great delights. Beyond here, the main bedroom is an elegant, contained space, with more glass and views, as well as a walkin wardrobe and fine en suite. Four bedrooms range around the northern edge, all of them a generous size and all with storage and access either to the deck out the front or a lovely little courtyard and grassy protected terrace to the rear. Adjacent to that terrace is a large, paved area with built-in barbecue and kitchen access trhough a servery window. The large central living and dining area is the crowning jewel here. Glass, deck access and pretty much 360-degree coastal views are the picture postcard frame to an interior that is no slouch either. Vaulted ceilings allow light and air to circulate and the dimensions are divine, with everything speaking to the heart of that languid summer vibe. It’s stunning here and the protected outdoor area out the front just gives you another place to sit and enjoy those incredible vistas. If the sky turns dark and the weather closes in, come inside and sit in front of the gorgeous Mount Gambier limestone hearth and cosy up. The kitchen at the rear looks sharp and big enough to handle a large crew – storage aplenty, walk-in pantry, heaps of preparation space. Of course, a coastal resort like this isn’t complete without its own pool. Here you get one with an elevated spa presiding over the blue below. Summertime. You know how the living is. ● LOU SWEENEY property@domain.com.au

This renovated single-storey property offers a comfortable lifestyle within walking distance of Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, shops and train station. The open-plan living area has a modern, fresh palette, with plenty of natural light invited in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The three bedrooms (all of which have either a built-in or walk-in-wardrobe) are separated by the main bedroom’s en suite and the laundry. At the rear of the house is the covered deck and spa. Being the first of three identical houses on the same block, this home has the added benefit of a front lawn. Other key features include a renovated kitchen, gas-ducted heating, split-system air-conditioning and a lock-up garage. ● AMELIA BARNES

WE LOV E IT

This house oozes Mediterranean style from the pillars of the loggia to the arched wrought-iron doorway. Just 800 metres from the beach, the four-bedroom house has 3270 square metres of manicured grounds surrounded by tea-trees. It has a tennis court, pool, outdoor kitchen and fireplace. Entry is into a tiled foyer leading to a living room. To the right are the kitchen and the dining and family room. Bifold doors open to the outdoor kitchen, barbecue and pool. Three bedrooms have builtin wardrobes and two have floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the pool. The main bedroom wing has a walk-in wardrobe, en suite, powder room and study.

The en suite showcases limestone tiles, and untreated ironbark is used for the deck. The lower level comprises a double garage, two storerooms, two bedrooms and a bathroom. On ground level are three bedrooms – the main with walk-in wardrobe and en suite, and two off the family room, which adjoins a wraparound balcony. Open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas at the rear have tiled floors, co-ordinated drapes and light fittings, and full-length windows offering views towards the back beach.

Seaside peace and contemporary panache come together on this property. With the eight-year-old house benefiting from owner-builder construction and interior-designer input, and a state-ofthe-art pool, there’s no need for Melbourne residents to catch a plane to find holiday bliss. A geometric facade of sandstone, timber and render establishes an emphasis on natural materials that’s reinforced inside the house through spotted gum feature walls and seagrass wallpaper.

From here, three sets of glass doors blur indoor and outdoor boundaries. Sliding doors in the kitchen and dining areas cut a corner to an outdoor room, and concertina doors in the dining area link with the deck. The design of this area easily allows adults to keep an eye on kids while all enjoy the salty air. The decking extends under a glass fence to the selfcleaning pool and spa. A study bolsters the case for year-round residency, as do hydronic heating, a Jetmaster fireplace and proximity to schools. ● KAY KAY KEIGHERY

24 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ FEBRUARY 1, 2017


BLACKBURN \ 1B CLARKE STREET On one of Blackburn’s renowned tree-lined streets, this brick house is immaculately presented. Inside, retro elements such as wainscot panelling, wallpaper and patterned tiles sit alongside more classic features, including ceiling roses, a decorative open fireplace, and a full-height stainedglass window. Despite being relatively compact, the single-storey house offers multiple communal spaces for entertaining, relaxing and dining. As well as the neat main living room, there is a separate meals and kitchen area, and another more casual family room. The two bedrooms are either side of the central bathroom (there’s also a separate toilet). With panelled timber cupboards, patterned tiles and an outlook over a small garden, the character-filled bathroom evokes the feeling of being in a tropical rainforest. The kitchen has been renovated in a more contemporary style, offering modern amenities that include stainless-steel appliances, a Neff oven and a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher. At the rear, there’s a courtyard wrapped in lowmaintenance greenery – ideal for outdoor dining and small gatherings. The property is in the zone for two government schools – Blackburn High and Blackburn Primary School – and the football and cricket grounds at Morton Park are just seconds away. Other features of the house include ducted heating, split-system air-conditioning, a single lock-up garage and a laundry. ● AMELIA BARNES
