cover story

B

ut before that happens, and we find out how he got to be Oprah’s go-to chef guy, what it’s like to be a dad and why he’s not coming home any time soon, something must happen. The writer formerly known as punctual has to turn up. Thanks to a tragi-comic combination of LA traffic, the new iPhone maps application and sheer out-of-town naïvety I am running desperately late. Not five or 10 minutes late. But half an hour. Half an hour late for a guy whose diary is no doubt divided into three-minute segments by his public relations team and whose day will later overlap with Ellen DeGeneres’. As seconds tick away in standstill traffic on Santa Monica Boulevard I weigh up how I might express my penitence if he’s still there; I wonder if he will object to a vigorous apology manhug. When I eventually do stumble into the bar of the W Hotel in Hollywood, sweating and apologising profusely, Stone shakes my hand firmly with his right and steadies me with his left – “You’re good mate, it’s OK,” he says – and then directs me to a table. But first he says: “These are my parents.” I shake their hands too. They are radiating pride and jetlag as they have just arrived in the States from Australia. Stone has picked them up from the airport. We sit down in the bar and start at the beginning. I read that you got your first big break under Marco Pierre White by offering to work for him for free. Is that true? “The easiest way to get a job as a cook is to walk in and say, ‘I want to work for you. I know your food. I’ve eaten it. I admire it, and I want to learn from you.’ Then, of course, anybody would take you on. You say, ‘I’ll work for free, and if I’m any good, pay me what I’m worth.’ Of course they’ll find a job for you. But I do think it doesn’t really matter what industry it is; it matters that you show your dedication through your actions, not your words.” What are you doing here in LA? “I came here by total accident. Actually. I was living in London at the time and had been there for nine years. I was asked to shoot this pilot for the Discovery Channel over here and I was having my 30th birthday in Vegas; it was sort of halfway between the UK and Oz, and I thought half of my mates are from there, half are from here. “They asked me to shoot the pilot right around that time, so I was like I’m going anyway, so yeah I’ll do it. It sounded like a ridiculous concept – I literally had to go into a grocery store and ask someone what they were cooking for dinner that night, invite myself back to their house, cook for them and surprise their husband – but it turned into a 140-episode series. It was called Take Home Chef. I guess they thought someone with an accent could get away with it a bit more than just a local.” Did you know anyone in LA in those early days? (Stone laughs) “I got here and was met by somebody from the production company and they said, ‘Here are the keys to your apartment, your mobile phone, and there’s a car in the garage’. I can remember looking at the phone when he left and thinking, ‘I don’t even have anyone’s number to put in there’. I don’t know a single being here.” LA can be a lonely place. Because it’s so spread out and has no centre it can feel like it has no soul. Do you remember your first few nights? “I was in Pasadena. I walked down to the old town and went in a sushi joint and sat there and thought, ‘How weird is this?’. “I was single and what else are you going to do but, you know, have a crack at LA? I don’t know if you’ve ever done it before, but just moving to a new city with nothing and no one; it’s confronting. Now I love it. It has so many personalities. Los Angeles is a horrible city to visit in many respects, but an incredible city to live in.” Where do you and Lindsay (Stone’s fiancée, actress Lindsay Price, from Beverly Hills, 90210 and Lipstick Jungle, who he met on his “first and last blind date”) live in Los Angeles? “We actually live at the end of a cul-de-sac just about five minutes away from here in Hollywood. Our house has this tiny little front, it doesn’t look like anything, and then you walk in and you walk through the house and our backyard really opens up onto this lake. In summertime you get crazy frogs that you can hear.” Do you have any advice on how to make it in LA? “It’s funny. I get calls all the time from people I know in 4 The weekly review \ JANUARY 17, 2013

Australia saying, ‘Introduce me to your agent’. I’m like, ‘Sure, I will; go for it!’ But I feel like saying, ‘Don’t just walk up to an agent in LA and say, I’ve hosted a travel show; what do you think? Come and do the research about what sort of networks you’d want to work for, or what kind of shows you can keep your eyes on’.” Once you’ve found a potential niche for yourself, or your business, what’s the next step? “I had a point of difference from day one because I was an Aussie. I was the only Aussie chef here as far as I knew. My brand – and I do hate speaking about it like that – speaks to certain audience members. I eat quite healthy compared with the other chefs in the marketplace. I probably look at bit healthier than some of them. You can make different alliances with that.” Is living healthy a marketing angle or a lifestyle to you? “That’s how I live and how I feel about food, which makes me really attractive to brands that want to promote health and fitness. It’s a huge market in America. It’s the fastest-growing market in the food space, health and wellness.”

Y

ou often sound more like an entrepreneur than a chef. Is that a side of yourself you’ve discovered and developed in LA? “Yeah, I think that with LA comes brighter opportunities but in TV, the fact is you’re just a pawn within a bigger business. When you figure that out, you realise you have to put together a fantastic team and from there you can be more strategic; you can go after the bigger deals. “You can then go to the agents and attorneys, who basically have access to everyone because they either represent them or their competitors, and you put together a plan. “That’s how you get on shows like Oprah or Ellen or whatever it is; by reaching out and having a point of difference that works for that show, and being clever about the way you work with your publicist to pitch certain things.” You said your first big break on the Discovery Channel was mostly dumb luck. Do you believe in fate? “I’m kind of a believer that you’ll always end up in the same place, but there’s a million different routes to get there.” Do you know how overexposed you are back home? Coles has killed you. “It’s wild, isn’t it? I’ve become the ‘Feed your family for less than 10 bucks’ guy; that’s me. But the funny thing is, it’s actually the proudest thing I’ve ever done.” Why? What’s in it for you, aside from the money? we welcome your feedback @

www.theweeklyreview.com.au/cover-story

“That ethical stuff around food is really important to me, and I like being in a position to be able to sort of fly a flag and inform people and help them. I think at some point the money doesn’t matter. I can remember I worked for a guy who was extremely wealthy, and I was asking him about it, and he said, ‘At the end of the day it’s just another zero’. In 2010 you told The Weekly Review’s Peter Wilmoth about your efforts to eradicate hormones and growth promoters in beef sold in Coles. How did that go? “Our beef sales went up 12 per cent, which is very exciting. It cost them a lot of money to do it because the production is slower, so it takes longer for the farmers to grow their cows, so you have to pay more for it, presumably. But you can’t charge more for it because the customer won’t accept it, so the price stayed the same. When I sit back and think about all the different initiatives we’ve worked on, I’m f---ing proud of it.” So is your work at Coles done? “No. The pork production in Australia is an absolute disaster. Because the industry’s price-driven, they have sow-pen production of pork, which means that the sows are kept in a pen. It’s too small for them to turn around. They get extremely big, extremely fast. When I say to Coles we have to stop this, they say the industry’s going to go crazy, because if we go and tell the farmers it’s not just like they’ll say, ‘OK’. They have to knock their farms down and rebuild. Who’s going to pay for it? Then I have to convince Coles, well, you have to pay for it.” Did Coles know what it was getting into when it started working with you? How did you get along with its leadership? “They had a really interesting CEO come in, Ian McLeod, who had very similar thoughts to me. He came from the UK, where the ethics of the food are actually more advanced and more humane than in Australia, believe it or not. As an Aussie, you’d like to think that we have this beautiful, organic, natural food manufacturing industry, but we don’t.” Your first child, Hudson, was born on November 6, 2011, (a fellow Scorpio to Stone, who was born November 4, 1975). Do you want him to grow up an Aussie? “Totally. There’s something primal in you that just naturally wants that. I remember when he was first born, the first time we travelled we had to get a passport for him. Of course, it was an American passport. That was something that didn’t sit well with me. I was like if he’s going to have an American passport, we’ve got to get his Australian passport.” Do you want Hudson’s upbringing to be like yours? “You always love the things that you had. I remember my school days in East Keilor and I think it’s a good, decent upbringing in Australia. And then you live in a big city like LA and you’re like, ‘God, where would we send him to school?


What sort of kids would he be hanging out with?’.” Have you and Lindsay talked about the future; where you’re going to raise the kids? “I’d like to be between the two countries for a while. I think you’ve got four or five years until you’ve really got to decide where they go to school. I think Lindsay and I have both got a pretty good sense of adventure and spirit that’s like we don’t have to discuss it now because you can’t answer any of those questions. Let’s just leave it that we’ll be cool when we get to the point and have to discuss it. I think she loves Australia too. She loves coming back and spending time over there as well.” What have you learnt about success? “Probably that you can brand yourself in any way; that there’s no one path to success. To use my industry as an example: if you’re healthy and this and that, then there’s all these things that are open to you, all these extensions that you can make of your brand. “But if you like junk food and going though drive-ins, then there’s a guy here who’s got a show called Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. He’s stuffing his mouth all the time. He’s the opposite of me in terms of what he stands for. But he does a great job, and more power to him. I think to be truly successful you have to live and breathe what it is you do. The only way you can honestly do that is if it’s genuine. Then you have to put everything into it. Everything! “If I’m honest about how much I work, I probably work 15 to 16 hours a day, still. I probably have, my entire life. It’s because I love it.” \ amcuthcen@theweeklyreview.com.au

Over-governance of the waters and land on the harbour are hampering development, writes PAUL MILLAR. PORTARLIngTOn A massive revamp of Portarlington’s harbour is needed for the aquaculture industry on the Bellarine Peninsula to develop and provide work for an escalating population, according to a local community leader. Tom O’Connor said the state government needed to consider the benefits before the costs of the safe harbour project, which has been placed on the back burner for years. However, he saw a major upgrade of the facilities at the port as the logical solution to provide a population – that, during the holiday period is expected to climb to 250,000 in 30 years – with employment through an industry that will provide jobs for the future. The current population on the peninsula is 45,000 and swells up to 120,000 in summer.

6 The weekly review \ JANUARY 17, 2013

O’Connor said that over-governance of the waters and land on the harbour was hampering development of what he believed was the key to the region’s future. “There is continued TOM overlapping of government O’cOnnOR institutions that always seem to clash; they need to work together more efficiently and more effectively,’’ said the head of the Committee for Bellarine. “We need to look beyond land-based agriculture to aquaculture farming.” At the moment the mussel farmers were limited in their catch because the harbour was not adequate and the cranes could not haul increased loads.

The committee had presented the state government with a series of ambitious proposals for the safe harbour concept and was working on a redevelopment plan that would include increased berth sizes and introduce a processing plant. The plans also included a breakwater extension, a marine education facility, restaurants and a ferry terminal. O’Connor also believed water taxis could be another option, with tourists clogging roads into Portarlington every summer. Lance Wiffen, who operates Sea Bounty, said the aquaculture industry was only scratching the surface. He said through research, sea farmers were starting to realise that the potential was enormous. To reach that potential, the jetty at Portarlington needed upgrading, he said. His trucks, hampered by holiday crowds, were struggling to turn around on the wharf. “And, at the moment, the jetty is not big enough to accommodate more commercial boats,” Wiffen said.

“We need to look beyond land-based agriculture to aquaculture farming.’’ TOM O’CONNOR

“We have to have development of some kind or the industry will fail.” Through a joint effort with growers and the Department of Primary Industries over the past six years a hatchery had been developed in Portarlington, which had seen mussel yield return to 2000 tonnes annually, a level that was common a decade ago. In between then it dropped back to 500-600 tonnes annually as the farmers lost the ability to catch their own spat in the wild. The development of the hatchery has changed that and Wiffen said they now had spat mussels “as good as any in the world”. They are now pushing ahead with oyster farming and believe that they can develop a scallop industry through the hatchery. Wiffen said if the wharf was redeveloped to cater for more and bigger boats, “the increase in jobs could be tenfold”. While the safe harbour project is seen by many as a must for the development of aquaculture, another leader of the industry said many smaller operators were struggling. Steve Mantzaris, of Mantzaris Fisheries, has seen the large fleets of boats gathering scallops in Port Phillip Bay shrink from 82 vessels in the ’70s to a handful of operators, who have had to vary their catches. “It’s been a tough couple of years,” the fisheries operations boss said. “The fishing industry in general here is in a bit of strife.’’ The industry was constantly criticised by the greenies and the limitations placed on their scallop operations were unreasonable, he said. “They close larger areas off and lock us into little areas and they only allow us to take the scallops in their fourth year, when many of them die.” The company now gathers 12 tonnes of

scallops a year, while in the past it harvested the same amount in a week. “They are wasting the resources, not us,” he said. Mantzaris said, unlike New Zealand, which has large commercial operators, the Victorian industry was operated by smaller family businesses that were enduring tough times. Seafood manufacturing in the region also appears to have “died” with the closure of a word-class processing plant in North Geelong, according to a local shareholder in a troubled company. Con Tsoumanis said the demise of Austrimi Seafoods showed that local companies could not compete with the prices that Asian firms were offering. “There is no future in manufacturing, the cost is just too expensive,” Tsoumanis said. “Unless you can meet the cost from overseas they do not want to know you.” Austrimi, which Tsoumanis said was a fantastic plant and the only one of its kind in Australia, is now in administration, with potential buyers being sought. At least 25 workers are believed to have lost their jobs in the lead-up to Christmas, which is a stunning turnaround from the start of the festive period in 2009 when it was revealed that the state and federal governments would invest up to $588,000, to support a $1.2-million expansion plan. The investment was also expected to provide jobs for more than 20 workers. Tsoumanis, who is also an owner and shareholder in Barwon Foods, was disappointed by the failure of the venture, which cost not only jobs but millions of dollars in investment. He believed there needed to be restrictions on imports, but knows that is unlikely to happen and has called for tighter controls on product brought in from overseas. David Mansfield, of Moore Stephens Accountants, said the company had gone into administration and he was looking for a buyer. “People have expressed an interest in it and we are looking at them,’’ he said. Austrimi, he said, had stopped production and only a skeleton staff remained at the North Geelong plant. Federal government statistics show that earnings from aquaculture in Australia had grown by 8 per cent to nearly $1 billion, and oysters, abalone and mussels were among the biggest earners in the industry. Aquaculture products from around the country brought in $948 million in 2010-11, according to figures released by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences. \ PAUL MILLAR editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

have just read your cover story on Darryn Lyons (TWR, January 10). I frequent the Elephant and Castle and have done so for many years. I met my husband there. While the cosmetic changes at the hotel may not be to everyone’s taste, Darryn has made a concerted effort to improve the food and the service there. As for the man himself, he is impeccably polite, articulate and never rude. Like many other people, I had some preconceived views about Darryn Lyons.

■ Thank

you for the article on parts of my life, which was featured in last week’s issue of your fine magazine (TWR, January 10). I wish to correct an error in regard

to the reported divorce between my first wife and I. This should have read: “I was divorced by my first wife, Vera, after 23 years of happy life together.” Unfortunately, and under the circumstances, my “trade-in” gag that followed was an example of gross nautical humour overriding good taste. I apologise to all for any embarrassment that may have caused. BoB aPPleTon \ GRoveDale UNhealthY Place to ParK ■ The

decision by Barwon Health

to charge staff up to $1000 a year to park their cars at Grace McKellar aged-care facility in North Geelong is a joke. It’s not a private car park, it’s a health organisation. There were some designated staff car parks, others found parks under trees on the western boundary, but only grass, dust and lousy lighting. Barwon Health has since removed trees, put in kerbing and told staff they have to pay. Some staff are now parking out on Ballarat Road, but this is upsetting residents. Eventually boom gates will be installed and everybody, including visitors going to see elderly relatives, will have to pay or risk an infringement notice. Industrially, there is nothing that can be done. Morally, it’s bloody abhorrent. mal DWyeR \ aUSTRalian nURSinG FeDeRaTion (viC BRanCh) a coNVerted scePtic ■ Having studied the opinions of supposed experts, I accept that the

planet is warming (TWR, December 20), but this might not be the disaster many predict. We need to adjust to the changes nature makes as it reacts to higher carbon-dioxide levels. The high levels are due to the lack of vegetation. Nature must produce more rain to grow more vegetation. Warming the sea will increase evaporation and produce more rain. The warming will also increase the growing season; the last two seasons in Australia are examples. While nature makes these changes, we will have to adjust our lives accordingly. This may be a disaster for some, but an advantage for others. Ray haRRiSon \ Bell PoST hill

But that’s what I’ve had to do, being a musician in Geelong. I can’t make money out of original music. I’d have to move elsewhere to do that.” Pobjoy’s story is by no means unique. These are tough times for local, original musicians. Obviously, there are still places to hear a live band on a Friday night. But while plenty of CBD pubs and clubs offer paid gigs to established cover bands, there are only a handful of venues hiring Geelong musos who actually write their own tunes. Musician Matt Baird says he makes a good living playing the cover-band circuit, but acknowledges this success has come at a price. “I think every musician has that burning desire to write their own stuff; the rock-star dream. At the end of the day, as you get older, you’ve got to make life decisions. The original scene has got extremely tough and the covers business is a very attractive option.” Baird also runs Geelong Entertainment Services, a booking agency that places cover bands across several of the city’s main venues. Even though these bands are still in demand, he’s increasingly finding more gigs at corporate functions than in pub back rooms. Booking agent Marie James has noticed a similar trend. She says the Geelong music scene has changed dramatically since her agency, Haze Music, opened in 1977. Pubs once offered live music as a draw for punters, but now they tend to rely on DJs or, even worse, the pokies to get people through the doors. “It used to be vibrant and lively, with bands in every pub and club, but now we’re having to concentrate our business on weddings and engagement parties. A lot of places have popped up and had a go with live music, but they don’t seem to last long. I think people are not going out like they used to for a dinner and dance.” Baird agrees. “You can’t blame the venues. Geelong’s always been a very tough scene for live music. There’s just not enough people wanting to get out there and pay the $5 entry fee.” Pobjoy says there’s one very simple reason that people are staying at home. “The city’s not a pleasant place to be around. I don’t think there’s anywhere in Melbourne that would have

security guards at a bus stop, trying to break up fights like it’s The Jerry Springer Show. I wouldn’t dare ask any of my friends to go out for a drink in the middle of Geelong because it’s just not safe.” This dangerous vibe has been poisonous to venues attempting to mimic Melbourne’s thriving laneway culture, he says. “Some friends of mine opened a bar up a little laneway. They wanted to have a nice, quiet, funky little bar with live music, but they just couldn’t get people to walk up that lane.” The latest venue to close is The Wrong Crowd, a CBD bar offering a wide range of original live music. Pobjoy – who regularly performed there – says he is “shattered” by its loss. With The Nash (National Hotel) also closed, albeit for renovations, things are looking all too quiet in the CBD. However, if there’s little to sing about in the town centre, there are a few notes of hope just down the road. Ocean Grove takeaway shack Piping Hot Chicken Shop has been providing a home to original live music for years. Current owner Ben Chudoschnik says they get plenty of punters driving down from Geelong to hear new music, rather than braving the city centre. “I don’t think live music is dead in the Geelong area, but I do think it’s doing better on the outskirts,” Chudoschnik says. “There are more smaller joints who aren’t trying to cram a thousand people in. Smaller venues like ours are a little bit special and build up their own following.” Chudoschnik says operating on a smaller scale allows him to do something many inner-city venues don’t – he actually pays his musicians. “They get the entire door charge, so if they get a 100 people through the door, that’s two grand in their pocket. Even on a quiet night, they’re still getting $400.” Similar, smaller venues might just be the answer to revitalising Geelong’s music scene. A spokesman for Geelong mayor Keith Fagg says the council is currently upgrading laneways in the hope of attracting more foot traffic. But Pobjoy says he’s

seen too many venues crash and burn. For would-be venue owners, the risks currently involved in setting up shop – on the off-chance foot traffic improves – are far too great. “It shouldn’t take you having to sell a vital organ to start a live venue,” Pobjoy says. “What really kickstarted the scene in Melbourne was those little on-premises licences for $400 a year, which is bugger all. You can serve food, serve alcohol and make a profit. If you break down some of the barriers, you might encourage more performance places to pop up.” Pobjoy would like to see pop-up bars making the most of the large number of empty shops in the city centre. “There’s so many empty spots there, you could transform the place in a week.” Elaine Carbines, CEO of the Geelong Regional Alliance (G21), says this sounds like a great idea. She says the city landscape has changed dramatically in recent years, with investment shifting towards the waterfront and the retail sector relocating to Bay City Plaza and Market Square. “We need to look at new ways to revitalise those empty shops because they’re not going to be replaced by more shops. We’ve had pop-up art venues, where shops in the CBD have been used, and there’s no reason to suggest live music wouldn’t be considered.” Carbines admits the current situation won’t be fixed overnight. She hopes greater investment in the arts precinct, the courthouse and Geelong Performing Arts Centre will offer more opportunities for musos, but thinks it might take an influx of new residents into the CBD to kickstart a scene. Meanwhile, the best thing for the Geelong music scene may be to stir up local passions. Pobjoy hopes people will start demanding more live music in Geelong because, well, it’s good for Geelong. “We’re so parochial in Geelong about things like footy, so why can’t we be parochial about our local musicians and artists? If we could somehow get local audiences supporting local acts in local venues, we could really create something. But until that starts to happen, we just won’t have a scene.” \ mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

sons build on fathers’ legacy

n the beginning there was Bob the Builder. Boat builder, that is. Then there were Bob’s twin brother John and their sons, and grandsons, and in turn they all built classic wooden Cayzer boats at Queenscliff. They designed and built fishing boats mostly, later a few pleasure craft, and others for the government and army, building them from magnificent huon pine from Tasmania, kauri from New Zealand and jarrah and karri from Western Australia. Their boats were built in a Queenscliff shed emblazoned Cayzer Bros and Sons, Boat Builders and Designers, and their boats became renowned for their strength and seaworthiness. \ It all began when Bob and John Cayzer went to work for boat builder Peter Locke in the 1930s. Then Locke went back to fishing and the brothers bought him out. So began the Cayzer boat-building dynasty. The boat sheds have gone now. “But the old slipway wooden boats out of Queenscliff before he was born. is still there, and part of the foundations of the shed Keith became the boat builder’s sixth apprentice at are still there,” says third-generation boat builder Keith 15 in 1964, straight from school, after his own brother Cayzer, his mind wandering back to the days he was Allan. He then built training models for the CFA for given time off school to attend a Cayzer boat launch. 13 years, but the call of the boats brought him back. The “The launch of a new boat was an exciting day. It was same happened to his son, Daniel, 34, who trained as a exciting for Queenscliff,” he says. “I’ve got photos of biochemist and joined his father nine years ago. 100-150 people beside the slipway.

TRADITION Four generations of Queenscliff’s Cayzer family have been crafting wooden boats, writes KEVIN NORBURY. In the blood: Keith Cayzer (right) and son Daniel carry on the family’s boat-building tradition. (Kevin norbury)

Another couta boat he’s been working on his father built in 1974 as a pleasure boat for the Baillieu family. Keith, then an apprentice, helped build this boat, a Cayzer 32-footer. Its colour he calls “fishing-boat blue” and white. It’s usually moored at Sorrento, but once a year it comes to Queenscliff. “We’ve serviced it, maintained and rebuilt it ever since it was brand new.” The biggest problem now is getting boat-building timber and the horrendous cost. Huon pine, if he could get it, could cost $60 to $70 a super foot. “Whereas you can buy a gallon of this fibreglass stuff for about 18 bucks and build half a boat out of it,” he says, laughing. It’s pretty obvious he doesn’t like fibreglass boats. He calls them “Tuppaware”. It’s the wooden boats that are in his blood, and he rattles off their names like a race caller at trackside. “When you spend hours and hours every day of the year on a boat and you drive 10,000 copper nails into the bottom of a 60-footer it becomes part of you,” he says. “What I’ve always liked about building (wooden) boats is that it comes in as a tree and goes out as a boat and you can stand there on the wharf and watch it steam away.” \ norbsu@gmail.com » www.classicwoodenboat.com.au JANUARY 17, 2013 \ The weekly review 13

The Missing Rink SPORT \ Samantha Shannahan has rediscovered her passion for lawn bowls, writes ANDREW MATHIESON.

L

awn bowls has long been associated with mature minds, but 23-year-old Samantha Shannahan has given the passive sport food for thought past the usual offerings of clubhouse cucumber sandwiches. Instead, Shannahan, who was voted one of Australia’s “Hot 20” most beautiful sportswomen in a magazine shoot at just 17, is blurring the image of the old ladies’ game quicker than any fast green could. Not that the Lara bowler’s patience is under question. She is preparing to launch another assault on the international bowls scene after hiding from “serious competition” in 2012 to concentrate on her final year of an occupational therapy degree. Shannahan kept herself busy off the rink as one of three bowls identities behind a campaign to push the federal government to retain free-to-air TV coverage amid accusations that the ABC failed to adhere to its own charter on Australian sport. The bid was ultimately unsuccessfully but it reignited a burning love of the game for her. “I think now finishing uni and having all this bowls stuff to look forward to has really helped my mental state,” says a revitalised Shannahan. When she went on hiatus, the world was at the rising star’s feet. A women’s under-25 world champion in just 2010, Shannahan found she was running out of options fast under Bowls Australia’s youth rotation policy. “You could be the best-performing under-25 in

ROSLYN

Australia and you still could not get selected,” she says about age eligibility for another shot at the world title. “It’s sort of out of my hands, really. “I’m happy to bowl again, but I still might not get picked.” Later that year she was fast-tracked for senior Australian honours and was selected as the women’s reserve for the Delhi Commonwealth Games squad. The highlight? A visit to the Taj Mahal in one of her few ventures from the athletes’ village.

Top class: Samantha Shannahan (left) was 2011 Australian Open singles runner-up, and shows her medal (above) as winner of the 2010 NSW Open singles. (SUPPLIED)

“We weren’t exposed to a lot and had to transport with the security,” adds Shannahan. “And there were weapons everywhere, so we were very hidden in a way.” Star-spotting famous athletes at the Games was a close second to experiencing Indian culture. But the experience watching from the sidelines as teammates missed out on gold, at the one event in which lawn bowls’ elevated television profile turned novice watchers of the sport into lounge-room experts, sparked a pledge to become a household name and return four years later in Glasgow. And for good reason. The state representative of some 140 junior and senior matches feels that not only playing at the home of the modern game can aid her Australian selection but also enhance her chances against international rivals. “I sort of feel like us Victorians have more of an advantage because our greens are similar to Scottish greens,” says Shannahan. “Ours are heavier than in New South Wales and Queensland, so our delivery and techniques are adapted to that sort of green. “I feel I have got an advantage. “Even though I haven’t been bowling as much, I sort of feel like I can play at my best.” \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.sportingpulse.com/mysport.cgi?mID=243663

EVERY POST A WINNER develoPing our city \ A duo’s blog has given the city a new and welcome voice, writes SARINA LEWIS.

P

enny Phipps grimaces prettily as she recalls her childhood visits to Geelong, birthplace of her father and her grandmother. “I always said that I would never live here,” she recalls with a wry smile of their annual winter stays, admitting she struggled to find the good in a city plagued by what appeared to be cold winds and little else. Fast-forward 15 years and the social worker can only laugh at the turn her life has taken. As half of the twosome behind the city’s premium lifestyle and design blog, Oh! Hello Geelong, Phipps and her partner-in-blogs, Laura Blythman, are part of a growing vanguard of artists, musicians, chefs and designers bringing creative caché to a regional city that in the past has suffered under a stigma of stagnation. With its sweetly kooky illustrations and whimsical posts, the blog aims to uncover the new and the niche: from the latest gallery-cum-café to a florist whose expertise turns flower arrangements in to works of art. Certainly Phipps and Blythman have hit a nerve. “We really weren’t expecting to have readers,” Blythman laughingly admits, establishing that the two friends initially began the blog simply as a way to become familiar with what was a new home for both. Having met in Thailand on the back of a taxi truck in the early noughties, each went their own way, keeping in sporadic touch when their seven-day holiday friendship ended. Eventually, Blythman left her home in Northcote

to take up a full-time design job in Geelong three years ago. Eighteen months later, while Phipps was working out where to position herself in Australia after years spent living in Ireland with her then-boyfriend, now-fiancé, she learnt of Blythman’s Geelong move on Facebook and decided to join her. Both admit the change from their respective cities took some getting used to. “It was hard to adjust to life in Geelong,” Phipps says, noting the suburban nature of the city means many interesting shops, cafés and galleries can often be hidden within residential pockets. “In Melbourne it feels much easier to find out what’s going on,” she adds. “Here, we struggled to settle in and felt that the best way to do that would be to expand our own local knowledge.” And so Oh! Hello Geelong was born. Certainly their very outsider-ness appears to give them the edge to home in on those places and people that have been succeeding in carving out creative spaces worthy of attention. And the response from those within the community has made it clear the blog has tapped in to a community nerve. The blog now has hundreds of followers awaiting eagerly for the posts downloaded once every seven to 10 days. Not to mention the dozens of cafés, galleries and crafty businesses in contact with them weekly, urging the two to visit in the hope of snaring their own blog post and – with that – the attention of an

influential segment of the Geelong community. “Our readers are 25-year-old to 45-year-old women with kids who like to shop,” Phipps says, grinning, noting the huge spikes in blog traffic that arise as a result of the sporadic giveaways that are run on the site. And while both are adamant they will never give up their day jobs, they say the site does provide a small income courtesy of carefully selected sponsors. (The duo only accept sponsorship from businesses that have already been featured in the blog, both highly aware of the adverse impact advertising can have when it comes to maintaining the trust of their readers.) “We don’t want to be full-time bloggers because keeping it fun was the point of it,” Blythman says, to nods of agreement from Phipps. “We hear so much from locals that we were needed,” Phipps expands, noting with satisfaction that the project that was begun to ease their transition to Geelong life has also worked as an aid to others. “We know ourselves what this sort of information can mean from people who move down from Melbourne with small kids, attracted by the affordable housing and the beach.” Our coffees are finished and the surrounding brouhaha in Winter’s Café on Pakington Street is escalating as the hour ticks over past 9am. Phipps is late for work and Blythman is juggling a toddler with freelance design demands alongside her first exhibition set to take place in the next few weeks at Boom Gallery. “See, we’re so busy we haven’t even written up this

place yet,” smiles Blythman of the ever-lengthening list of spaces popping up around Geelong that they believe are each deserving of their own post on the blog. Back to the office, then. They’ve got work to do. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au » ohhellogeelong.com

\ 295 BLUESTONE BRIDGE ROAD, LOVELY BANKS, 3213

S

urrounded by towering pencil pines and vibrant gardens, the property at 295 Bluestone Bridge Road is the result of more than 20 years of love and hard work. The trees that line the property’s borders were planted one rainy weekend long before the foundation of the house was laid. At the time the 1.5-hectare (3.8-acre) block was nothing more than rolling paddocks with a basic shed. But the owners had a vision of what this stunning parcel of land overlooking Corio Bay could one day become. They spent late nights sketching plans and dreaming up ideas for a house that catered for their growing family’s every need, and that’s what you see today – a sprawling homestead designed for family living. The house was built in 1990. The layout was so carefully thought-out that it’s still current. It flows, makes great use of space and lends itself to entertaining, and lots of it. The grand external foyer has a timber-lined ceiling and paved drive, while the front verandah is the perfect vantage point to take in the spectacular water and city views. Timber front double doors reveal a wide tiled entrance hall, which is the central point of the house. To the right is the north wing, which is almost entirely dedicated to bedrooms. There are five of them, with the main featuring a walk-in wardrobe and substantial en suite with spa. The main bathroom, with double vanity, is also at this end of the residence, along with a powder room and spacious laundry. To the left of the entrance hall is the formal lounge and a raised formal dining room. At the far end of the house to the south is the triple garage, which also has a workshop at the rear. Directly in front of the entrance is the main living area. A lining board ceiling, exposed beams and an open fireplace create a cosy atmosphere, despite the room’s considerable size. The kitchen runs off the living area and is stylish as well as practical. It’s obvious from the moment you see it that this is the heart and soul of the house. Stone benchtops, glass-tiled splashback, stainless-steel

final word “THIS IS A GREAT PROPERTY THAT COMBINES PRIVACY, SPACE, VIEWS, LIFESTYLE AND CONVENIENCE ON THE FRINGE OF THE CITY.” NICK DE STEFANO – AGENT

appliances and a stunning copper rangehood offer cutting-edge appeal. Ample bench and cupboard space, as well as the adjoining meals area, make it ideal for large family gatherings. There’s plenty of room for everyone. Along to the left and down a flight of steps is the large rumpus room, with built-in bar, sauna, shower and powder room. The bricked rumpus room opens to a resort-style undercover paved entertainment area that’s big enough for family functions and has even been used for a wedding reception. A high Perspex roof offers an abundance of light and allows for year-round use. There’s a built-in barbecue, as well as cupboards, a sink and an oven so all the cooking and meal preparation can be done outdoors. A ducted heating and cooling system as well as ducted vacuum feature throughout the house. The land at the rear of the residence has been partitioned into sections – it’s been a labour of love for the owners and there’s not a patch of the block that hasn’t been put to good use. The immediate yard behind the house has been fenced in, providing a safe and secure play area for the kids. There’s a large paved entertainment area with a gazebo as well as plenty of lush green grass. The remainder of the block includes a large veggie garden, another zone for cultivating plants, and a paddock for olive and lemon trees. Maintaining the gardens has been made relatively easy with an automatic watering system. The property also has its own bore-water supply as well as rainwater tanks. Children will love exploring the sprawling surrounds of this property, while parents will delight in the peace and quiet, all the while being less than 15 minutes from Geelong’s CBD and 50 minutes from Melbourne’s city centre. \ SARAH BIESKE property@theweeklyreview.com.au

JANUARY 17, 2013 \ The weekly review 25


highton \ 44 Montrose Place Views don’t come much better than this. The large, paved entertainment deck, built over the remote-controlled double garage, offers a sweeping outlook over Geelong’s waterfront to the You Yangs. It’s a clever use of space and makes the most of the block’s elevated location on the hill behind Queen’s Park. Quality and contemporary design are the keys to this builder’s own Mirko family house. The entrance hall, behind double front doors, is tiled and has rich timber features. To the left is the formal living room, while access to the garage is to the right. There’s also a gym room in this front section. Further along to the left is a powder room – a curved feature wall, glass vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiles in deep blue create a nautical look that’s unexpected among the mostly neutral tones used throughout. The kitchen is spacious and part of the open-plan living area at the rear. Windows along the north side overlook the inground pool and entertainment area. The four bedrooms are upstairs, the main with walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The other three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. There’s a kitchenette at the top of the staircase, the perfect place to keep drinks chilled when making the most of the upstairs deck. \ sarah bieske

geelong \ 1/260 Yarra Street There are few new houses with the fastidious finishes, distinct modern design and incredible location this one. Fewer still that capture the warmth and ease of a well-loved home before being sold. But then this is no ordinary house. Outside, exposed aggregate driveway and picturesque gardens are striking against the towering white façade. A remote-controlled double garage, with storage space, offers direct access into the house through a rear door. Downstairs, a large front bedroom has a light-filled walk-in wardrobe and stunning stone en suite. Polished hardwood floors run throughout and enliven the sweeping open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas. The kitchen with stone benchtops, Smeg appliances and island bench is an entertainer’s dream. An open fireplace is a feature of the living room and aluminium bifold doors mark the entrance to a sunken courtyard. Up a flight of stunning timber stairs with glass barriers, the main bedroom has it’s own wide balcony, walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The main bathroom, with oval bath, shower, double vanity and gorgeous stone tiles, is a showstopper. A further two carpeted bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. Finishing the upper level is a large family room with access onto a separate balcony. There’s only one thing to do; move in and enjoy this incredible house. \ MARY-JANE DAFFY

Contemporary design features make this three-level inner-city residence a stand-out. A stunning frameless-glass balustrade on the timber staircase is the centrepiece, running from the ground floor to the third floor. There’s a bedroom on each level, the first to the left of the entrance and with a walk-in wardrobe. Further along is a spacious laundry, separate toilet and stunning bathroom, which makes great use of space and includes a separate shower and bath and floor-to-ceiling tiles. The open-plan kitchen, dining and living area is on the second level. The kitchen is sleek with white cabinetry, stone benchtops, glass splashback and stainless-steel appliances, while blackbutt floors complete the modern look. Bifold doors lead to a balcony with views of Corio Bay. The second bedroom, with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite, is also on this level. The third floor is given to the main bedroom with an en suite, walk-in wardrobe, study and a balcony. A lift makes reaching each of the three levels quick and easy. At the rear is a double garage. \ SARAH BIESKE

What sets this immaculately kept weatherboard house apart from its contemporaries is the size and scope of the elevated 731-square metre block. A long driveway ends at a 14-metre deep remote-controlled garage and workroom and marks the start of the vast backyard. The house brings the allure of yesteryear to the fore with lovely decorative cornices, lighting and striped awnings. The carpeted open-plan lounge and dining area is flooded with natural light and backs onto the equally open kitchen with ample storage. A wide hallway with storage divides the living areas from the three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes. A huge rear fourth bedroom, with direct access into the backyard, could easily become a rumpus room or study. The light, bright bathroom continues the house’s period charm with leadlight windows throwing coloured light across the shower and deep basin. Tucked just outside the back door is an airy laundry with a great outlook across the fantastic backyard. \ MARY-JANE DAFFY

The sensible floor plan, quality build and excellent condition of this residence make it ideal for anyone looking to settle in without a worry in the world. The functional open-plan kitchen, dining and living area faces north for maximum warmth and is tiled throughout, so cleaning up after children and pets is a breeze. Two separate sliding doors in the living area to the backyard open up the room, letting in air and lots of sunlight. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite and is conveniently located at the front of the house, with the other two bedrooms at the rear. A study at the front of the house is well away from the hustle and bustle of the main living areas. The low-maintenance backyard has secure side entry at both sides and modern concreting combined with a rock garden gives it a contemporary feel. Set in family-friendly Waurn Ponds, close to shopping centres and sporting facilities, this house will ideally suit a growing family or those looking to downsize or retire. \ tiffany pilcher

Little has been spared on the design and build of this stunning modern townhouse, which now just needs owners to call it home. From the outset, a landscaped garden, paved driveway, and render and brick exterior impress with the quality of the finish. Once inside, the house excels. Downstairs the main bedroom features a walk-in wardrobe the length of the room and an en suite with bath and shower. Direct access from the house into the garage is through a door in the wide hall. Blonde floorboards brighten already light, white rooms. At the rear, a large modern open living, dining and kitchen area makes the most of a northerly aspect with floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass door leading onto a long undercover deck. The carpeted second level is equally spacious, with a light-filled open family room the main feature. Another two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, are near a huge bathroom with large bath, shower and double vanity. A security system, heating and cooling systems, a walk-in pantry and concealed laundry ensure easy modern living. \ mary-jane daffy

Inside this brick beauty nestled high on the hill, it’s the sweeping views that steal the show. Seated inside the inviting, carpeted living area, it’s easy to imagine enjoying the outlook through floor-to-ceiling windows while the gas fire burns during the cooler months. Even the open kitchen, with ample storage and bench space, is positioned to make the most of the views. Perfect for entertaining, the slate-floored kitchen flows onto a dining area and rear informal lounge with built-in timber shelving and wine storage. Positioned next to the dining area, a glass sliding door provides access onto the undercover decking area and a backyard with a lockable shed. The house is deceptively large, with three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, a large bathroom with deep bath and shower, a slate-floored laundry with side access to the clothesline, and a separate toilet. The conveniences of easy living haven’t been overlooked with low-maintenance outdoors areas, ceiling fans and heating and cooling systems. \ mary-jane daffy

There is no compromise on style in this smartly designed house that will accommodate any growing family with ease. The entrance is striking with quality solid-timber floors throughout the formal and informal living areas and a modern and elegant colour palette. The contemporary kitchen is also functional with stainless-steel appliances, a large walk-in pantry and breakfast bar. The main bedroom has an en suite, a walk-in wardrobe and split-system air-conditioner while the remaining bedrooms are colourful and perfect for growing imaginations. While all the creature comforts are inside, outside is where the fun begins. The huge covered outdoor area has exposed aggregate concrete flooring and screens to allow for entertaining in all conditions. Children will be occupied for hours in the cubby house and sand pit. The attractive front of the residence has palm trees, paved pathways and a secure and stylish front fence. An outdoor security system, intercom and remote-controlled double garage offer peace of mind. \ tiffany pilcher

There is space for the whole family in this house with several living and dining areas and cleverly separated rooms that give everyone the chance to come together or enjoy their privacy. The galley-style kitchen has ample bench space, plenty of room for extra appliances – including several fridges or freezers – and a high-quality Miele dishwasher and oven. Catering for a large family is easy with two separate living areas, a dining room and a large twin laundry. There is a ducted heating and cooling system throughout and a ceiling fan in the main bedroom. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, and the main bedroom has plenty of extra storage. The family bathroom has a bath and a separate toilet. A raised, covered and decked outdoor entertainment area is the perfect place to enjoy spending time with family and friends. An established vegetable patch is waiting out the back for a green thumb and a solar-panel system helps keep bills to a minimum. This house is filled with character and close to shops, schools and playgrounds. \ tiffany pilcher

This inviting and cosy residence presents an excellent opportunity for a first-home buyer or a savvy investor. Close to schools and universities, it would suit a couple looking to make their way into the property market or an investor searching for a neat residence in a high-demand area. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with a gas heater and split-system air-conditioner is downstairs. Exposed-brick walls, timber stairs and a bay window give the residence character while a laundry with direct outdoor entry and separate toilet add convenience. Both bedrooms are upstairs. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, a split-system air-conditioner and a fully equipped bathroom. Though it’s a townhouse it’s set over two storeys and on the corner of the block, giving it the feeling of extra space and privacy. Colourful gardens and a paved area make the backyard the perfect place to entertain or take some time out to relax. The single lock-up garage has direct entry to the interior, and there is space in the driveway for a second car. \ tiffany pilcher

Fantastic position, directly opposite the Highton Bowling Club and only 100m from the shopping centre. This very neat 2 bedroom unit (in a complex of 4) will have universal appeal. A sound investment or downsizer, this is deceptively spacious whilst maintaining a very homely feel. Great lounge with RC/AC, light and bright kitchen with adjoining meals, single garage (remote) and private rear yard. This low maintenance residence will create high interest. Be quick!

It boasts sweeping northerly views over Queenspark valley from most rooms.

Introducing Elle Ariail 0450 768 469 When people first meet Elle Ariail there are two things that tend to make an immediate impression. The first, of course, is her accent which provides the immediate hint of her adolescence spent in the U.S. The second, however, is a more subtle impression that is built on excellent communication skills, a determination to succeed and a commitment to 5-star customer service. Add all this together and you know that you are dealing with someone who can help you achieve your real estate goals.
