The Weekly Review celebrates six months since we THIS WEEK  opened our doors and the publication of our 21st issue. It may not be a long history compared with other media organisations

but it certainly has been a wonderful journey for all of us at TWR and a timely reminder to say thank you to the many, many people who have helped turn our dream into reality and played a part in making The Weekly Review the leader in the marketplace. The Weekly Review’s business plan was to create a high-end, free, home-delivered glossy magazine. While this was outside the traditional model of local newspapers covering local news, the flood of positive comments and letters from readers and the incredible support from advertisers suggests we have struck a chord with our audience. Each week The Weekly Review features quality journalism from some of the best names in the business. In addition to our full-time editorial team we also draw on the talents of another 30 contributing journalists and photographers. As someone who spent 17 years working in the newsrooms of Melbourne’s two major dailies, it is hugely gratifying to be working alongside this talented team and to continually receive feedback from readers on the quality and design of our magazine. For those of us who love journalism, it’s nice to know that our investment in quality has paid off. Most media is available free to consumers, and there is no reason why quality print journalism needs to be any different. Six months in, we now publish two magazines and find our way into 217,000 letterboxes each week. We have come a long way in a short time, but there is a long road ahead. We have a great deal more to achieve and we plan to grow, with new titles in Melbourne and interstate and an exciting digital strategy. While we have our sights on growth, we are focused on the present and on our promise to always hire the best people so we can give you the most informative and compelling journalism free to your door or online. \

nothing quite SOLiTARY MAN There’s as healthy as being

corn-fed and raised. Hollywood corn, I mean. Having a happy and sentimental predisposition towards the stirring strains of a tearful speech by Jimmy Stewart, an agonising showdown with Gary Cooper or the life-affirming vision of a Frank Capra or a Howard Hawks gives you a good bead on the nature of human frailty. With that in mind, it became very obvious to me last week why I was clearly the only one who hugely enjoyed federal independent Rob Oakeshott’s bravura performance in Parliament as he (finally!) announced which side of politics he would support in Federal Parliament. It was Jimmy Stewart meets Roberto Benigni meets Rick Moranis. Tony Windsor was clearly the Cooper character: short, to the point and regretful. Grandstanding? Limelighting? Not at all! Finally some decent theatre came to the house on the hill. As I tweeted at the time, these guys should take this act on the road. But, my word, have they been thumped for it. The redoubtable Sky News presenter David Speers nailed it

in the first few moments of the independents’ decision: “So it begins,” he noted, as sneering scorn, incredulity and doubt were heaped on them and their decision. There was a cynicism bordering on contempt that characterised the analysis of the independents’ actions, and that surprised me. And it has not been restricted to the press. They were limelighters; power-hungry; enjoying their time in the sun too much; exploiting power beyond their remit. They were, apparently, simply fixated on hanging on to their power. Well, paddle me with a Hansard, or as we would have said back in Nunawading … derr. What on earth did anyone expect? If you stand for election in any context, anywhere, anytime, you are after power – for good or for evil. And once gained, you need to maximise it, defend it and hang on to it. A mother with a two-year-old understands this just as well as the chairman who has taken control of the board after a mighty tussle. And if we are going to robustly take part in the context of power that is an election, can we just get over this fey shock and horror at the sight of elected representatives leveraging their position for as long as they can? They are not there to do their laundry. I expected the three independents to take their roles and their task very, very seriously. And while one day I may be exposed as being naïve, it seems to me that they did. In the context of a country with a well-entrenched

two-party system, an independent has a particularly complex task – making their mark in a parliament of bifurcated views while representing majority interests that see themselves as entirely separate from them. If, as an independent, you end up holding the balance of power, then you can add to that national interest, competing national expectations and your own longevity. I would expect these guys to weigh those issues at length, and alienate some in the meantime, knowing that if – as some in the media and the wider public were suggesting – they simply reflected their own biases and plumped for the team that suited, they would be howled down just as much. In the spirit of there being no point in worrying about things you can’t control, and because good faith is always in greater supply than bad, I’m going to believe what these blokes say right up until the point that it’s obvious that I shouldn’t. As a nation we don’t often elect liars, brigands or despots to positions of great power. Not often. And the strength of our democracy is such that their regimes are ultimately curtailed if we do. The fight for power isn’t of itself a bad thing. Let’s see what they do with it. \

Pakistan floods.

Vulnerable children urgently need your help. Approximately 18 million people - equivalent to almost the whole population of Australia - have been affected by Pakistan’s worst floods in living memory. The situation is far worse than first thought. According to the UN at least 8 million children have been seriously affected. Humanitarian operations are underway and aid is being delivered, but relief needs to be scaled up. UNICEF is appealing for US$141 million.

Clean drinking water and sanitation are urgently needed to stop diseases such as dysentery and cholera spreading. UNICEF is on the ground providing food, clean water, medicine and supplies. You can help us reach more vulnerable children and their families.

Please donate now at www.unicef.org.au or call 1300 884 233. If the funds raised exceed UNICEF’s funding requirement for the Pakistan flood the money will go to UNICEF’s general emergency fund.

Review\ coveR stoRy

M

eeting Miss Universe Australia and second runner-up in Miss Universe in an Albert Park café on a gloomy Saturday morning holds interest on several levels. Maybe the first is to see how an extremely beautiful young woman will change the dynamic in the room when she’s among the rest of us perhaps less stunning individuals with our newspapers, first-thing-in-the-morning hair and kids wrestling each other on the banquettes amid the half-spilled babyccinos. Somehow it seemed like an unglamorous world for Miss Universe Australia to be moving in. But the question of dynamic-changing was answered when Jesinta Campbell was leaving. As we walked out, with Jesinta made up for a shoot later and looking a million dollars and, at 178 centimetres, towering over many of the Albert Park folk cradling lattes, a star-struck woman approached. “You came third in Miss Universe, didn’t you?” Jesinta smiled warmly. “Yes, that’s right,” she said. The woman was excited. “I’m with a friend from out of town and we saw you and … ” And just had to say something, clearly. That’s brand-new celebrity for you – cold walk-ups from fans eager to bask in the glow. And that’s Jesinta’s new life. The second level that’s interesting is: What’s the third-most beautiful woman in the world like to talk to? Well, that’s answered quickly, too. She’s a delight – unpretentious, a bubbly laugh and a fear of being perceived, because of her beauty, as one-dimensional and superficial. “Someone said to me ‘You’re so down to earth’,” Jesinta says. “And I hadn’t said anything. Just because I was wearing bogan clothes.” She laughs, aware of the power of stereotyping and the reputation that models have for self-obsession. A blink of the eye ago Jesinta was a golden child from the Gold Coast, born in Clagiraba, 25 kilometres from Surfers Paradise, a bit of a tomboy, an outdoors girl, riding horses, tearing around with her younger sister, playing indoor volleyball, hanging out at Rainbow Beach. She was school captain at Aquinas College, into her studies and with no thoughts about modelling. “And then people started to say to me in my teens that I was very tall and quite lean. I thought they were just being nice.” She won a modelling competition in Brisbane before being awarded a scholarship for journalism at Bond University. She decided to defer her studies and make the leap into modelling. “The idea of travelling the world and meeting new people and experiencing the world was really exciting.” She approached a couple of Sydney-based agencies. “I was never tall enough or skinny enough,” she says. It’s scary to hear that, and I can hear women grinding their teeth because she is long and lean – what my mother used to call “a drink of water”. Anyway, not being the agencies’ idea of perfect didn’t hold her back, and she scored a sponsorship from make-up group Nude By Nature and in 2009 began touting her portfolio of photos around town. The agencies told her the modelling centres of Melbourne and Sydney were “saturated with European girls with massive portfolios”, but again, that didn’t deter her. “I hate waiting for things,” Jesinta says. “I always try and go out and get things. So I told the agency I was going on a working holiday to Sydney. I had $500 in a bank account and borrowed $500 from my grandma. I had nowhere to stay, so I arranged to stay with friends of friends of cousins.” An agency called Scene picked her up and she started doing “hair jobs” – modelling at TAFE colleges for $200 here, $500 there. “It was $50 an hour. I was a live mannequin working on the catwalk for the students

studying fashion. A lot of the models hated it because they weren’t working with known designers but I loved it because I was seeing dreams come to life.” She scored a catwalk gig in Shanghai. “It was incredible,” she says. “I travelled by myself, first time out of the country. It was seven days a week, 12 hours a day. I’d do shoots where I’d change into between 150 and 300 outfits and I’d get a 10-minute break for lunch.” Her two months in China was a chance to explore another culture. In her down time Jesinta decided to explore the local area and meet people. “I made friends with a local man who sold fruit, and a guy who made omelets in the morning in a café. I went and ate with a couple of local families who invited me into their homes.” It was a slight culture shock. “They don’t have Facebook or anything like that.” There were some funny times. “I’m allergic to chicken eggs but not duck eggs, so I’m walking around like a duck to make sure I was getting the right eggs,” she says, laughing.

J

esinta was the only one of the models getting out and exploring. “They were out partying,” she says. “I wanted to have experiences that I could look back on and tell my kids and grandkids about.” Back in Sydney, Jesinta scored a campaign for Davenport undies and did a shoot with Olympians Stephanie Rice and Eamon Sullivan, and then one for Telstra BigPond, which put her on the side of buses. “It’s a strange experience being at the lights and a bus pulls up with a massive photo of me, windswept, flowers around me and superimposed blue hair.” Then things went quiet, so Jesinta took up waitressing at a café in Kings Cross, which she loved “because I was working in a team”. She thought she’d have a go at the Miss Universe contest. “I saw Miss Universe Australia as creating a platform. It was a goal that I’d set myself in year 10 in a careers meeting,” she says. “I wanted to be a journalist, work with children or be a teacher.” Her mother, a primary-school principal (her father is a plasterer) asked what was her one dream job. “I said ‘A volunteer helping people, working with youth’. The career counselor looked at me and said ‘This girl has to make a living’. Mum said ‘What else?’ I said I liked being on stage. They said ‘The money you make from acting can be used to fund your charity work’.” Aged 18, Jesinta won Miss Australia in June and went to Las Vegas to join 82 girls in the battle to become Miss Universe. On the way, she won a peer vote and

“There have been marriage proposals on facebook. where was everyone before?”

became Miss Congeniality as the most inspirational and friendly participant. “The whole experience was surreal,” she says. “I don’t see myself as a beauty queen. Physical beauty has never been big for me. It’s never been something my family had put a big emphasis on. They put a massive emphasis on being the best person you can be, and to be kind.” In August she came third in the main event. It was exciting, and Las Vegas, she says, was “surreal”. On leaving, she went into a souvenir shop and said: “I need the most disgusting thing here.” That turned out to be a bright-pink carry-on bag. Jesinta laughs at the thought. It’s refreshing – she’s got a sense of humour and a perspective that can be lacking in the very young and the very beautiful. The glamour and the fans and being fussed over is OK, but she doesn’t revel in it. “I really am a jeans and T-shirt girl. That’s me. I have no desire to be perfect.” I asked Jesinta the obvious question: did she believe beauty contests objectify women? “I didn’t feel objectified in any way. I felt empowered. We went through so many interviews, had to write massive bios. They asked us questions about gay marriage, cosmetic surgery, human rights. While it is a beauty contest, there is an aspect of beauty as a whole.” Jesinta runs 7-10 kilometres every day and enjoys “experimenting with raw food” in her cooking. She enjoys non-fiction and self-help books such as The Elephant and The Twig. She loved the film Rabbit-Proof Fence and Jane Campion’s The Piano but her favourite is The Power of One, based on the Bryce Courtenay book. “And I do like chick flicks,” she says, smiling. Heroes? “The people who inspire me the most are unknowns. In China I went to the gym at 5.30am and I’d see a man who sold fruit outside the gym at that hour of the day so he could send his child to school. Everyday people doing extraordinary things.” The Miss Universe success won’t change her, she says, but it’s opened up some pathways. “Opportunities have arisen. They are endless now.” She doesn’t have a boyfriend. “You’re a publicist’s dream,” says her publicist, who has now joined us. She’s not wary of personal questions from the media. “I’m happy to talk about my love life,” she says. “There have been lots of marriage proposals on Facebook. Where was everyone before all this?” It’s a fun hour with Jesinta Campbell and after a while you manage to forget how beautiful she is. Well, not forget, but it becomes slightly less of an issue. In the company of beautiful people you spend the first 10 minutes or so marvelling at how it was all thrown together so well, and then you get talking and all the person’s other qualities reveal themselves and soon they are just like the rest of us. There’s a line in a Woody Allen movie where the Allen character is on a date with a woman in a taxi and says: “She was so beautiful I could barely keep my eye on the meter.” It’s the sort of humour Jesinta Campbell would appreciate. \

The find

all, you want long, luscious lashes that create a gale when you blink. They should start a million conversations and even silence Invidia, the Roman goddess of envy. And to achieve this you need a mascara that is easy to use and remove, long-lasting, lengthening, volumising, thickening, curling, well designed and, if it is not too much to ask, cooks your dinner and does the washing! In reality, no mascara can do all the above just yet. If such a holy grail was available, why do beauty companies keep flooding the market with new mascaras? Mascara was first developed by Eugene Rimmel in the 19th century but it wasn’t until 1913, when T. L. Williams mixed coal dust and Vaseline for his sister Mabel’s lashes, that it became popular. The product was such a hit that they decided to sell it as Maybelline (Mabel + Vaseline). It was, however, Max Factor, the father of modern cosmetics, who improved mascara to what we know now as a great product in a tube. Modernists argue that it’s the brush and not the formula that makes the mascara a godsend. Purists tend to believe the opposite. Whatever camp you belong in, keep in mind that mascara is not a magic wand – it has to work on the lashes you were born with. \

REVIEW\ FASHION

Romantic Main: German designer Rena Lange used stripes to accentuate a nautical theme.

Below: London-based fashion design Anja Gockel found inspiration using ruffles, her olive-green shirt testament that the layers of ruching make an otherwise plain shirt more adventurous. Below right: Dawid Tomaszewski was also heavily into ruffles.

K IL I A N K E R NE R

says feminine like the twist NOTHING and curl of ruffles in fashion. Whether they’re found on a dress, skirt or top,

ruffles are the hot ticket for the warmer months and bring with them a romantic and playful serenade. Ruffles are girly – there’s no doubt about it – and when teamed with laidback and more structured pieces (think denim, leggings, shorts) it adds buoyancy to an otherwise simple outfit. Ruffled blouses make a comeback for spring and summer and add an elegant touch when matched with a high-waisted or pencil skirt. The ruffles conjure old-world romance and, in the case of the sheer blouse, fuse elements of Elizabethan with bohemian to create a modern fairytale fashion moment. Frills, ruffles, tiered dresses and skirts were all the rage on catwalks for 2010/11, with everyone from Stella McCartney, Louise Goldin, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Givenchy all making sure they had ruffles in their collections. French designer Isabel Marant makes

Ruff les

the most of flirtatious tiered ruffle dresses in her spring/summer collection. A gorgeous cream-coloured dress when matched with cowboy-inspired boots says charming and fashionable all at once. Actress Reese Witherspoon has been seen wearing her floral ruffle dresses. Valentino certainly knows how to add ruffles without making women look like doilies. His spring/summer collection was earthed in neutral shades and drew inspiration from the baroque period. The range focused on matte tones while dresses were short, demi-godlike and ready for wearing. Giambattista Valli worked with a ballerina theme for his collection, relishing the dizzying notion that ruffles equal romance. While the dresses were see-through and best suited to waif-thin models, the presentation fused art and elegance for a theatrical presence. Dolce & Gabbana saluted the ’80s with mini denim dresses complete with ruffles while Burberry Prorsum preferred ruffles added to sheer tops for curve, the detailing coiled around the neck and shoulder line with artistic bent. Maxi dresses also make a comeback this summer, complete with ruffles – but be warned – the maxi dress at the best of times is not suited to all shapes and sizes, ruffles only drawing attention to the extra baggage some of us prefer to hide. At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011 held in Berlin, Denmark’s Kilian Kerner showed us what happens when you mix ruffles with avant-garde. We can’t go past his metallic shades of pearly cremes and silver dresses and tops, the edgy designer making the most of slippery silk fabrics, too. Polish-born and Berlin-based Dawid Tomaszewski (who has worked under Vivienne Westwood and Sonia Rykiel) also found use for ruffles in his latest spring/ summer 2011 collection. Tomaszewski, who also won the young designer award for women’s wear this year, says art, jazz and classical music were the inspiration behind his collection. His pieces showed us long-necked frill dresses and short hems while opting for vibrant reds and onyx black to spread his romantic quest. Renowned German designer Rena Lange unveiled a nautical theme in Berlin, using stripes and fitted shorts for summer while matching this with almost knee-high flat summer sandals. When it came to dresses, it was all about colour (think candy lollipop stripes) and ruffles that were wearable and layered and nodded to all things ’70s. Summer is certainly all about cascades of ruffles that are destined to brighten up days and get heads turning. \ JANE ROCCA janerocca@mac.com

Parkinson’s disease triggered an unlikely turn of events for dentist Richard Bassed. But as CLAIRE HALLIDAY writes, he hasn’t looked back.

I

t started with a little clumsiness. Richard Bassed was 36, married with three daughters and making the most of his five years of training as a dentist to work as a general practitioner, employing five other dentists at his successful family practice in Knox. Then he started dropping things. “I’d reach for something, pick up the wrong instrument by mistake, then drop it,” he says. “I don’t know if the patients were noticing. They might have thought they had some alcoholic dentist.” But Bassed wasn’t drunk. In January 2001, when he asked his GP what might be wrong, he was told that he might have multiple sclerosis or a brain tumour. But that wasn’t it either. Instead, when Bassed attended a referral appointment with a neurologist that same afternoon, the specialist, he says, “looked straight at me and said, ‘you’ve got Parkinson’s’.” Although Bassed hadn’t made his own firm self-diagnosis, he’d had his suspicions. “My dad has it too,” he says. His farmer father, who Bassed believes has had the disease since he was in his 50s (despite being officially diagnosed with it in his 60s), has suffered only mild symptoms. “It was very minor,” Bassed says of his own shaky hands, pre-diagnosis. “If I wasn’t a dentist – if I’d been a gardener or a builder or something – I might not have really noticed. Being a dentist, you’re dealing with millimetres and half millimetres just by eye and by hand control. If you’re unable to do that, you’re unable to work.” In the months that followed, Bassed could only sit and watch, despairingly, as the life he had worked so hard to create started, bit by bit, to disintegrate. Without his own patients to treat at the Knox practice, running the business became so unviable he eventually sold it to two of the dentists already there. The stress also took its toll on his marriage – a union that ended in divorce in 2003. To help him come to terms with the illness he was sure was his fast track to an early death, Bassed attended a support group for sufferers of Parkinson’s but came away even more despondent. “It was so depressing,” he says. “All these people, dribbling, shaking, in wheelchairs. I worried about it for a long time. I looked back on everything I’d done – my dentistry training – and thought, ‘what’s the point?’ I was pretty messed up.” With no purpose in the city, Bassed retreated to his parents’ farm in northern Victoria, helping out where he could. “Dad tried to shake me out of it. He’s the eternal optimist,” says Bassed. “They were always telling me to get a focus and stop moping and being miserable.”

THe JAwS of

When he took their advice, Bassed explored his options. First, he considered offering his professional services as a lecturer to trainee dentists. Then, he found out about the Graduate Diploma in Forensic Odontology at Melbourne University’s Melbourne Dental School – a one-year course that trains dentists to specialise in the handling and examination of dental evidence (often used in criminal cases or body identification). “The shaking’s not an issue with dead people,” he says. A mortuary visit during the course gave him his first exposure to a dead body. “I was actually surprised that it didn’t affect me,” he says. Discovering this ability to disconnect might have been a positive for a man planning a career in forensic dentistry but Bassed was still letting his own condition overwhelm him and, with so few jobs available in Melbourne, life, even with this new qualification, was not changing for the better. “I just kept coming back and forth from the farm.


alive to the 5000 records of the dead – trying to match them up by fillings and other dental patterns. The distance between his work there and his daily working life back at the family practice in Knox was much more than mere geography. Although there was no official debriefing, Bassed helped himself with regular phone calls to his children – enjoying the distraction of their childish questions about the weather or if he was finding them good souvenirs to bring home. “You put on your clinical, scientific hat and you just become completely dispassionate,” he says. “You have to be – when you see truckloads of dead babies unloaded in Thailand.” Child victims still have an impact, says Bassed, 46, but he knows he can’t afford to let it take hold. “I’ve always been fairly practical,” he says. Last year, his role in the Victorian bushfires disaster was to co-ordinate a team of forensic dentists in the mammoth task of identifying victims.

I

f deAth I didn’t know what I was going to do,” he says. It took a disaster of unimaginable proportions to snap him out of it. On Boxing Day, 2004, it happened: the Indian Ocean tsunami.

A

s one of the few qualified forensic odontologists in Melbourne, Bassed was called upon by the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) to join a team in Thailand, sifting through the sea of corpses to identify victims. Between January and October 2005, Bassed spent three months in Thailand – doing his bit in the process from beginning to end. “They had set up a massive temporary mortuary. We got in old refrigerated containers,” he says. “Part of it was examining deceased people, part of it involved going out to where they had recovered remains, looking for teeth and bones that might help the identification.” At the reconciliation centre, Bassed and his team compared 5000 dental records of people while they were

t was his proudest achievement. “I was proud of the way all of us here at the VIFM handled it. There was a lot of pressure,” he says. With a disaster so close to home, Bassed took extra precautions to protect himself from the nature of the work. “I didn’t read a paper, I didn’t watch the news for about three months,” he says. “I didn’t want to know about the final moments of Betty Smith, talking to her friend, while her windows exploded, while I was examining Betty Smith’s teeth. It’s easy to let the sadness creep in.” In between the major catastrophes, Bassed has worked on other cases, including the Kerang rail crash and the Mount Hotham plane crash that killed a millionaire couple. Most days, though, his work is on a smaller scale – working on some of the 180-230 annual identifications undertaken at the VIFM and making the odd court appearance to give evidence on bite mark analysis or the exact cause of facial fractures. Technically employed just one day a week at the VIFM, Bassed’s focus at the moment is researching his PhD – trying to determine more accurately unknown ages in the range between 15 and 25 years. “As you get older, there’s less bones developing so it’s more difficult to tell exact age,” he says. It’s a skill that will have its uses on the living, as well as the dead. “It’s particularly useful for applying to incoming immigrants, working out whether they are over or under 18, as that has great impact on the way they are treated within the law,” says Bassed. Currently, Bassed is busily working on the identification of another significant slice of Australia’s history, helping to determine whether the skull handed to state authorities by West Australian farmer Tom Baxter late last year is the same as that stolen from a display case at the Old Melbourne Gaol in 1978 – the skull of Ned Kelly. Using a combination of DNA evidence and superimposition of CT scanning using a death mask believed to be taken of Kelly after his execution, Bassed says the findings from the team at VIFM are sure to attract a lot of interest: “A lot of people are fascinated by Ned Kelly.” What’s not so fascinating to Bassed is the plethora

“You put on Your clInIcAl, scIentIfIc hAt And You just become completelY dIspAssIonAte.”

of television crime scene investigation stories that portray people such as himself as something akin to superheroes, solving crimes with incredibly advanced equipment. Bassed says it doesn’t work quite the same way in the real world. In his own downtime, he prefers to read (all that PhD research). He apologises as if embarrassed by his own earnestness. In his younger days, before marriage and dentistry, Bassed was something of an adventurer – he trained as a scuba-diving instructor and went rock-climbing in his spare time. His present role, he says, allows him some of that old adventure. The excitement of his working environment, is that no two days are the same. Then there is the travel. With so many international trips already under his professional belt, Bassed recently returned from Africa, as part of a training team taking – for the first time – the knowledge of forensic dentistry to Botswana. Next year, Bassed will travel to Uganda to teach. “There’s a great need for forensic dental training throughout Asia and Africa and the Middle East,” he says. It’s a potential itinerary that seems to suit Bassed. His hopes for the future include more travel and, with his PhD set for completion next year, Bassed hopes his extra qualification will give him the professional edge to bring more such opportunities. The downside is that the trips will mean more time away from his children. “They don’t really ask,” Bassed says of his young daughters and whether any have an interest in his daily working life. “I’ve been doing it since they were little. They don’t remember me as a normal dentist. They just roll their eyes when I tell them I’m going away again.” His hands still shake sometimes but with medication, he says, “I have it under control”. “I pop a pill and about 20 minutes later, you wouldn’t be able to tell. Then about three hours later, if my hands start to feel a bit crampy or shaky, I just pop another pill. There are levels to this disease. I don’t believe I’m going to end up like Michael J. Fox. I try not to worry about it or stress like I used to. I just get on with things.” Although Bassed admits that he “fell into a heap” in the two years immediately following his diagnosis, his new path as a forensic odontologist has, he says, taken him places “I never would have got to”. “I’m much happier now,” he says, with a softness to his voice that tells me he means it. Bassed has thought about what life might have been like if the Parkinson’s hadn’t happened. “I would have had a busy practice, a nice big house, a sports car and I would have played golf on the weekends like dentists are meant to do.” He pauses. Shakes his head. Laughs. “And I would have been bored to tears.” \

Investment and the mode of ethics sustainable, charitable, green are Ethical, adjectives more common in our everyday vocabulary than they were years ago. The environment now

has to be sustainable, the organisations for which we volunteer are charitable and our investments are becoming more “ethical” … but what does this really mean and can financial returns be achieved without compromising our beliefs? As the world focuses increasingly on the environment, the climate and social issues, company business practices are being more closely scrutinised. Triple bottom-line (also known as people, planet, profit) reporting has become the new criterion for determining the true success of businesses today. So, what is ethical (or socially responsible) investing? The Language of Money, by Edna Carew, defines ethical investment as “investment in companies or industries that promote positive approaches to environmental or social issues, or the avoidance of investment in industries producing goods deemed harmful to health or the environment, such as tobacco and some chemicals. Some managed funds specialise in ethical or ‘green’ investments.” There are variations on this definition but, put simply, ethical investing attempts to align your investment decisions with your personal values and morals. The common theme in most discussion on ethical investing is that the financial return from an investment must also have an environmental and/or social benefit attached. Ethical investing can be done in one of two ways; by

actively investing in companies deemed to be ethical (positive screening); or by avoiding investments in companies that aren’t (ethical exclusion). Both are conscious decisions based on your personal criteria. While one investor, who is opposed to mining, might choose not to invest in a mining company, another may invest in that same company because it has strong environmental sustainability policies and practices. How do you judge if an investment is ethical? As with any investing, ethical investing can be made through direct investments (buying shares) in companies or via a managed fund that specialises in ethical investing. Any investment decision should be made considering your goals, financial circumstances and risk levels. Ethical investing is more subjective. When analysing a particular investment, people’s views on whether a company’s business practices are ethical will vary depending on their morals or values. Finding investments that meet these values requires close scrutiny of the products being offered to ensure they correlate to your personal definition and expectation. For example, I did some research into ethical products available in Australia and came across Australian Ethical Investment and Superannuation, which advertises “the world-first climate-change advocacy fund”. This immediately got my attention … how do you get a return on a fund that advocates for climate change? After reading the product disclosure statement, it is clear it is really just an index fund, with the only difference being that the managers have promised to lobby ASX200 companies to “improve corporate behaviour, financial performance and sustainability”. This did not meet my expectation of an ethical investment.

Can ethical investments provide comparable returns? Company returns rely on good business management in the environment in which the company operates. Diversification in investing is recommended to ride the peaks and troughs of various industries. Excluding an entire industry from an investment portfolio could result in lower returns. Advocates of ethical investment do so on the premise that companies with strong sustainability philosophies and practices are generally better managed and therefore are good investment options. Research by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia showed that “over periods of five and seven years, responsible investment Australian share funds continue to outperform their average broader market counterparts by a small margin”. (1) Attitudes towards ethical investment are changing. According to the RIAA, $14 billion was invested in managed responsible investment portfolios at the end of the 2009 financial year. Many super funds are now also offering members the option of an ethical/responsible investment fund. The expectation of the level of returns from investments varies from one investor to the next. As ethical investing is not just based on financial returns, the value of the social and environmental factors must also be considered in the overall return of an ethical investment portfolio. \ Caroline elliott BeC.

A chip off the old ... sculpture has a certain gravitas. The word It’s borrowed widely, along with its language. Some arts practitioners working in the field of

audio describe themselves as sound sculptors. Entrepreneurs will talk about carving out new territory; scientists produce models of everything from genes to the big bang. Bodybuilders compare themselves to Michelangelo’s David. He, in turn, compared his own practice to the ancients, especially given the renewed interest in their work. Michelangelo was a great painter and architect, but it was his work as a sculptor he considered most important. Part of the reason is that, like other Renaissance artists, when he sought yardsticks against which to measure his achievement, the examples were mostly sculpture. Sculpture had a presence and relevance in the urban environment. Carved, moulded and cast decoration was integral for most public buildings until the beginning of the 20th century. By then churches, which for centuries had been the most significant patrons of the plastic arts, had already entered a long period of decline. The faith – that a bronze or marble could literally embody the spirit of a prophet or saint, let alone God – had simply become quaint. We still have a need for the figurative, but for the most part that need is filtered through irony and kitsch. An artist reaching maturity in any of the great urban centres would have countless examples of sculpture to shape their sensibilities. We’ve got billboards and big, fabricated public art planted on the edges of bypasses and freeways: things that we catch sight

of from the corner of our eye, if we notice them at all. Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s a good thing that – to take an example – Transurban commissioned artwork by Callum Morton for the EastLink tollway between Greens Road and Bangholme Road. It is called Hotel, a large-scale model of a high-rise hotel. As talented as the individual sculptors are, however, the most successful things are the bridges. The genius of our age is in its engineering, which requires a different skill set. It is natural in this era that a sculptural flourish on the scale of the Melbourne Gateway – better known to most of us as the Big Cheese Stick – is the work of an architectural firm Denton Corker Marshall. The design could be sketched on the back of an envelope; the most significant intellectual resources for this sort of undertaking are logistic: engineering calculation, project and budget management. Some of the most interesting developments in 3D art are happening in gaming. So far, it’s had only a limited impact on the “art world”, but that may change soon. Sophisticated graphics tools are used to create these games, and the budgets can be enormous. This new media raises some big questions for welders and stonecarvers. If we can navigate our way around these worlds, if objects can be built in a program, and we, entering that program, can walk around a virtual statue, isn’t it a piece of sculpture, and the programmer a sculptor? And once the code for this programming is obsolete – say, in a year’s time or so – individuals and small groups of collaborators will have the opportunity to do new, interesting things, just as Renaissance sculptors used foundries built to cast their art. You heard it here first: the next generation of sculpture could be coming to you through your 3D goggles. \

First Resort Like most Melburnians at the end of August, a slightly pallid PETER WILMOTH needed to thaw out. So, taking pity on him, The Weekly Review ordered him to fly to Hamilton Island to do some good old-fashioned reporting. Oh, and lying in the sun.

W

riting a recent article in my Arctic-like little office, I realised I was wearing two jumpers, a jacket and a scarf and watching the rain tumble onto a garden I hadn’t touched for six months. I know we love winter in Melbourne – you know, football, red wine, open fires. But my team’s not in the finals, I’ve had enough red to sink the QE II and you can’t walk around carrying your open fire. So, now it’s spring, any chance of some sun? And then the phone rang and a very nice person said “Hamilton Island”. Apart from “transaction approved” at the supermarket, Hamilton Island has now rocketed, for the time being, to be my two favourite words. So up I went. And the timing was immaculate. We all need to escape. It could be the grind of the job. Or maybe you’re getting away from something or someone and a change of environment and pace is the tonic you need. Let me reassure you – three nights on Hamilton Island was not my Eat Pray Love moment. Unlike Elizabeth Gilbert, I didn’t seek a medicine man for spiritual guidance, I didn’t fall headfirst for any glamorous Italians and I met very few Brazilian business types. I certainly ate but I didn’t pray, and the only love I felt was the thrill of de-thawing in the Queensland sun. Hamilton Island has one name written all over it. The island is Bob Oatley’s dream made real. Hamilton was owned by Keith Williams from 1975-1996. In 2003,

21st Century Holdings Pty Ltd, a company controlled by the Oatley family, won the bid to acquire 100 per cent of shares in the island. The Oatley family has since invested more than $100 million in the construction of the island’s stunning luxury resort qualia, which opened in 2007, and more than $85 million in the development of the Hamilton Island Yacht Club and Villas. The Oatley family’s passion for “Hammo”, as the locals call it, is impossible to deny. When Bob Oates decided to make the island special he didn’t muck around. Qualia is the Oatley’s piece de resistance. Arriving at qualia, I knew I was vulnerable to the charms of a little luxury, but I didn’t quite expect to hear myself uttering “wow” when the door of my “pavilion” opened. But that was my visceral reaction. It reminded me of the pale English boy I saw, who stood with his mum at the top of the Portsea back beach on a magnificent summer’s day and, on witnessing the massive blue expanse of the ocean, said: “Cor, muvva, look at all that wa’er!” For a moment, I was that pale little boy. Oh my God, I thought. Or, in the world of texting, OMG. Well, where to start with qualia? I suppose the best thing to do is to wind my jaw off the floor and have a second look at the azure sea that seems to envelop the “pavilion”, the outdoor decking area with its lounge chairs, day bed and plunge pool, the superb bedroom and a large, beautifully appointed bathroom with white

egg-shaped bath and range of Aesop products. Qualia was built three years ago. It was built with Australian hardwood floors and quarried stone, and the pavilions feature beachy couches and ottomans and meticulous finishes. They have been superbly thought out. I did have the laptop open and the mobile on and was admonished by a good friend for returning her emails. “Get off the computer!” she wrote. She was right. I needed to get away from my ocean-based screensaver and concentrate on the real ocean. I needed to indulge in the surroundings. You could sit on the deck here and stare at the ocean all day. Indeed, the main challenge for a short stay at qualia is working out how much time to spend enjoying it, and how much to spend exploring its facilities. To explore, you’ll need your two-seater electric golf buggy, which is yours while you’re here. I wanted to have a look at the Pebble Beach, the restaurant, pool and gym, and I nearly set off to go the 300 metres on

foot. Luckily I remembered the buggy, thereby averting the clear and present danger of exercise, and hopped in. Let’s not kid around – these are fun. It’s like getting around in a sawn-off Mini Moke. And, with smooth pathways, proper intersections and the need to give way to other guests with a wave and smile, it sometimes feels like you’re in one of those learn-to-drive set-ups with scaled-down traffic lights and traffic signs. I had a chicken wrap at The Pebble Restaurant – on the beach – and admired the pool almost at the beach’s edge. From there I visited the “library” – full of coffee-table books, it needs some real books in there – and then back to the pavilion for a well-earned rest. In the late afternoon, I was due at spa qualia for a “Kodo” massage, which, as therapist Belinda explained, is inspired by Aboriginal techniques. Some leaves are lit for fragrance and you choose the oil. The massage was extremely relaxing. At one point, Belinda asked how it was going. “Very good,” I said. “And that’s from someone who’s 70 per cent conscious.” I’d made a booking for the restaurant but retreated when I saw the “fine dining” mood and $48 mains and decided instead to get takeaway. As happy as I was to be alone – it’s amazing what a tonic a bit of “me” time is – it didn’t seem right, so Johnny from guest services drove me down to grab a piece of grilled fish to take back to the pavilion and watch the ABC’s Q&A. To celebrate that, I thought I’d borne witness to

panellist Malcolm Fraser actually cracking a smile, I drew up a plan of attack for my last morning in my pavilion. “Sit by lap pool for a while, followed by a stint on the day bed, backed up with a go on the lounge chairs’. Next morning I followed the plan to the letter. Breakfast is in The Long Pavilion, and it’s a beautiful buffet enjoyed while overlooking the sea. The service is brilliant. Of course, at qualia there’s a range of more rigorous activities: windsurfing, catamaranning, paddle-skiing and snorkelling. And, across the water on Dent Island, there’s golf. Golf and me have had a curious relationship. My father was very good, playing off a handicap of four. He was also president of Metropolitan Golf Club. Me? Have never played. Well, not on a real golf course. I’ve whacked a couple of balls once on an oval and watched them fly into the next postcode, which, admittedly, felt good. But I never connected with the sport. But I’ve seen the look of love in the eyes of golfers. There’s a simmering passion there that can’t be denied. They say it’s an addiction. Just as cyclists congregate in their Lycra and chat about the joys of a packed peloton, surfers pull on the neoprene and shoot the breeze about corduroy lines of swell and insane reos, golfers pull on the spikes and make their own fantasies involving a hole-in-one on some crazy dog-leg par four. So there I was, among the believers, on the ferry for

the 10-minute trip to Dent Island, also owned by the Oatleys. This is one of Hamilton Island’s key magnets for tourism – a golf course designed by former five-time British Open winner Peter Thomson. The Weekly Review was taken on a tour of the course. Opened in August last year, the par 71, 18-hole course features two distinctly different nine-hole layouts with spectacular views. The clubhouse has been superbly designed, with stylish finishings. Lunch was a lovely piece of barramundi. On the ferry on the way back to Hamilton, a keen golfer from Canberra appraised me of the course’s traits, which he said were many. He’s been around the world’s courses, he said, and this was a beauty. Hamilton Island is a destination that suits a range of tourists – families with young kids, sailors, golfers and couples at qualia. Don’t come here for excitement – it’s not a party island. Come here for the great weather, the beaches and the laid-back resort lifestyle. For my first two nights, I stayed at the Reef View hotel, which is serviceable and fine for families. The views from the upper levels are great, but the rooms are a little tired. The pool is excellent, and if you’re not with kids, the trick is to avoid the Parents Who Talk Too Loudly To Their Children, as in asking them ‘Do you need to go to the toilet?’ delivered just below the volume of Guns N’ Roses at their sonic peak.

H

ey, I’m a parent, and I’ve asked that question often, but I hope I’ve directed it at the person in question, rather than everyone in the vicinity, out of respect for the child more than anything, and in a hopefully successful attempt to avoid being a Parent Nerd. Problem is, I’d forgotten my iPod, which was dumb. Is there nothing an iPod cannot do, especially around a pool? And Parent Nerds? That’s a very good outcome, as Julia Gillard would say, music in your ears around a pool in Queensland. What is not to love about that? Hamilton Island undoubtedly has the feel of a resort, and one whose owner has made his mark. The famous 30-metre super-maxi Wild Oats XI, a multiple winner of the Sydney-Hobart race, sits in the marina alongside a lot of equally impressive yachts, including one named Secret Men’s Business. It would be tempting to say yachting is just that, except I noticed quite a few women yachties hanging around the town. The Oatley family’s wine is everywhere on the island, which is a very good thing given the quality of the Robert Oatley range. I attended a tasting guided by Darren Jahn, communication and education manager from Robert Oatley Vineyards. Darren is a knowledgeable and entertaining host, who brought the story of the Oatley’s wines to life. Inspired, that night I enjoyed a bottle of the sav blanc in my room, with a greater appreciation for its provenance. Hamilton Island is an excellent holiday option, a gateway to the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef. It’s less than three hour’s from Melbourne and there are direct daily flights with Virgin Blue and Jetstar. Prices at qualia range from $950 a night for the Leeward Pavilion, to $1450 for the Windward Pavilions (in which I stayed) and $3000 a night for the Beach House, which can be shared. But final prices depend on the package you buy. (For information or reservations, 1300 780 959 or email: reservations@qualia.com.au.) After three-and-a-half days on Hamilton Island, Melbourne’s winter seemed an eternity away. And the sense of escape felt therapeutic. Maybe this was how Elizabeth Gilbert felt after her Eat Pray Love adventure. Now all I have to do is work out a way to write a book that sells seven million copies. Eat Pray Sunbathe? \

Spring into Yoga: find a claSS many full moons Early Spring, ago, I was shopping for a class in the yoga mecca of Prahran. The teacher

(ISTOCKPHOTO \THINKSTOCK)

was Indian so I figured he must be good, coming from Yoga’s heartland. His fair-haired, honey-tanned acolyte wore a kind of loin cloth (probably just daggy shorts), according to my apocryphal memory. But I do recall being rigid with panic as the whimpering girl beyond my buckled body’s sight asked the teacher to release her from a posture, and he refused. I’ve done hard-bodied yoga with a humourless teacher and gently cooing classes with a sweet despairing one, flowing postures with an Earth Mother and cocooned myself in the comforting routine and community of one tradition. If you’ve lapsed over winter and are keen to get your mat rolling with a new class this spring, here are some shopping tips …

TradiTion vs fusion Let’s divide yoga styles roughly into tradition-based and fusion styles. Yoga traditions have a spiritual guru or master teacher who develops a style and adheres to a philosophy that is passed down through a lineage. They usually have a hub that nurtures the student/teacher community, providing a like-minded social network and workshops on say, “yoga for back pain” or “stress”, for students as well as teacher graduates. They may even hold full-moon meditations and solstice celebrations. Some traditions in Melbourne include Gita International in Abbotsford, Krishnamacharya Healing Yoga Foundation (KHYF) in Middle Park and Yoga in Daily Life in Richmond. While the Iyengar and Ashtanga traditions have loads of teachers here, they have no central hub.

Having said that, many teachers with an entrepreneurial spirit and a rented space create active hives for students. Fusion classes came about as teachers continued professional development beyond the tradition in which they qualified. Many explore the vast world of yoga styles here and overseas, slowly developing a personal “best of” compilation of teaching influences, styles and philosophies. Many fusion teachers simply advertise themselves as “hatha” yoga, while others have codified their new style and branded it, such as Shadow yoga, Anusara and SomaChi.

Format, Pace & ProPs Class formats vary hugely but most include some floor work and standing work and transition from one posture to the next (holding each for a minute or so). Breath work and relaxation are generally key elements. Vinyasa classes, meanwhile, offer flowing posture sequences performed in perfect harmony with the breath. Some styles, such as Iyengar, also use props (bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets) to ensure you get the best alignment for your body in each posture. It requires some mucking around between postures, but you might enjoy that micro-break, or find it unutterably tedious and prefer the simplicity of straight mat work. Consider the pace of the class, too. Some styles whip through 25 poses or more in 60 to 90 minutes, which makes working safely difficult for newcomers. It can take years to crack the best alignment for your body in popular classes where teachers are unable to offer

sustained individual attention. You may find it more rewarding to consider a smaller class, or one that spends more time in fewer postures, until you build a stable foundation and confidence.

What do I need? In her search for a terrific teacher, my friend Sal came across plenty with hot bods, outfits to match and the bendy cellular structures of ex-dancers. But, says Sal: “One of my fave teachers of all time was a woman in her 70s who wore spangly old leotards.” Ask yourself, do I want …

a yoga coach or a sPIrItual mentor? l

l

l

l

l

l

A class that challenges me, or restores me because I’m a total stresshead? A few private classes to gain confidence and technique? A studio that offers a variety of classes, ability levels and teachers? Or a teacher who offers smaller groups and individual attention? Is personal development and spiritual philosophy important? A community of yoga buddies with whom to enjoy all things oogie-boogie (spiritual)?

excuse me, but …? ask the teacher l l

Are your classes dynamic, or more restorative? How many postures do you do per class?

l

l l l

l l

What’s the format? (eg: Breath work? Mostly standing postures? Any relaxation?) Are classes level-specific, or of mixed abilities? How is your yoga different to others you’ve tried? Do you offer spiritual philosophy and what are some of your key concepts? Do you offer individual attention? What do people say they like about your teaching? \

Review\ pROfile

The road less Travelled one day, Jon and Jack Faine decided to go for a drive – to london, writes CorrIe PerKIN.

O

ne week after the launch of his new book, Jon Faine is visiting an inner-Melbourne bookshop when the publishing house representative who has come with him excuses herself to take a phone call. She returns to the table where Faine is signing copies of From Here to There, the travel book he co-write with his son, Jack, and is wearing a broad smile. “Congratulations, Jon,” she tells the ABC announcer-cum-author. “Your book is a sellout and head office has just agreed to reprint it.” Faine is delighted but admits he is not surprised. “For whatever reasons, this book has struck a chord,” he says, then recalls recent conversations with men who have read the book. “I think it’s partly the travel aspect, but also the father-son relationship that has drawn people in,” he concludes. In a market such as Australia’s, it’s highly unusual for a local author to sell 8500 copies of a book within a fortnight. It is also an achievement to be granted a reprint of 3000 copies, which is what HarperCollins, through its ABC Books division, has done. But in the competitive world of Melbourne talkback radio, Faine is a hero and his fans are many. For 14 years the former lawyer has achieved consistently solid ratings figures and is one of the city’s most influential commentators. Writing a personal account of the arduous and exciting six-month, 40,000-kilometre journey from Australia to London that he and Jack undertook in 2008 was always going to have bestseller potential, even if its audience was just Melbourne-based. The book has done very well nationally, however, and defied traditional publishing logic. Advance copies of From Here to There were circulated at the July Australian Booksellers Association conference in Brisbane, prompting some delegates from other cities to

ask: who’s Jon Faine? By the end of the conference, they were converts; Faine was guest MC at the conference dinner and delighted everyone with his obvious love of books. It is quite possible that as the sales figures tick over, that earlier investment of time spent with the nation’s book retailers is paying dividends. Not that Faine embarked upon his trip for the book deal or the money. “There are easier ways to get rich than travelling across the world in a four-wheel-drive,” he says with a laugh, adding that even just the decking out of their car with new tyres, batteries and driving lights, a fire extinguisher, two laptops and cables, cameras, a satellite phone, medicines and first aid, a rescue beacon, a spirit stove, water containers and extra car parts dealt a hefty blow to his wallet. The trip took Jon and Jack – then 19 – from Melbourne, across Australia, by various boats to Timor and Indonesia, into Singapore then through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, China, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Iran, Turkey and Greece, then a ferry to Italy, Switzerland, France and, finally, London. The pair left on June 30, 2008 and arrived at Piccadilly Circus on January 11, 2009. As Jon writes in the book: “It was a total folly – and it was the best thing you can do. I wouldn’t do it again, but I would recommend it to anyone.” We sit chatting in the canteen at ABC’s Southbank headquarters. Jon has just finished his morning program, and Jack joins us after a lecture at Melbourne University, where he’s studying arts. Most of the publicity interviews and book signings have been done by Jon. His is also the dominant voice in the book. But the chapters and blog entries written by Jack are captivating. He displays a strong writing style and his reflections will particularly appeal to those of us who have kids and friends around the same age and often

wonder: what’s their take on the world around them? Jack has no regrets and says it was a fantastic way to spend time between school and university. “I was always going to take a year off, and when you’re confronted with a choice of either staying at home and maybe working to save some money to travel a bit, or going to these places you’ve never heard of and probably never will get the chance to see, it’s pretty obvious.”

T

he catalyst for the trip was Jan, the wife and mother of the travellers. Years earlier, she and Jon discussed trekking the world in a four-wheel-drive but never realised their dream. Then, during a family holiday in 2006 as they drove between Jordan and Syria, Jan turned to her youngest son in the back seat and said: “This is what the drive would be like. Jack, you should go with your dad in your gap year.” When the family returned to Melbourne, Jan revisited the idea. Jon Faine was keen, his son less so. As Jon recalls in the book, Jack pondered the idea for a week then came back with one precondition: that he would be in charge of music. “I agreed before he could change his mind,’’ writes Jon. “I knew it would not be a cakewalk, that there could be hiccups, but none of that seemed worthy of serious hesitation or negotiation. How many fathers yearn for more time with their kids? Who doesn’t?” After negotiating long-service leave from the ABC, Faine’s planning started in earnest. The final nine months’ preparation, he recalls, was “very intense, I describe it like having a second job. I’d be emailing the world, chasing visas and permits. Nothing was easy, and every step required so much planning.” From Here to There moves at a cracking pace, from the father-and-son’s departure on that dark winter morning


to their reunion with Jan in France six months later, the Christmas they share before the older Faines leave Jack in Paris with his friends and head to Britain. There are some alarming incidents, such as Mongolian border crossings, driving in China, Jon’s diarrhoea attack in the Gobi Desert, bad roads in Kyrgyzstan, and getting through Iran’s borders with papers and passports intact. The diary is accompanied by travel ephemera: photos; maps; diary notes; currencies; blog extracts. But what makes this book stand out from other travel memoirs is its human element. Both authors tell it like it is. “Travel is a really individual thing, an ego thing,” Jack explains. “You do it for yourself. The travelling has nothing to do with your surroundings or the communities you go to. All you’re doing is rocking up to some place and taking a photo and then storing them as memories without making any meaningful attempt to connect with the local people.” In the book, he explores these feelings in greater detail. Writing at the trip’s end, he says: “I arrive at the conclusion that it’s a pretty stupid idea to cross the world in six months. We didn’t have enough time in each place to get a solid base and see much more than the nearest tourist sight.” Inevitably, they got on each other’s nerves. “Jack seems heartily sick of me,” Jon writes during the China

“The Trip reAlly wAs so speCiAl ... iT’s someThing we’ll AlwAys hAve BeTween us.”

leg of the journey. “He never laughs at my jokes, won’t indulge me in conversation, argues readily about trifles, begrudgingly kicks the football, spending his time instead cropping and finessing photos on the laptop.” But the trip offers both a chance to get to know each other on a new level. Travel does that; kids on extended holidays with parents usually display a new maturity while their parents become kids – playful, adventurous, and willing to explore. The Faines are no exception. “Our topics of conversation have changed,” writes Jon in the Mongolian chapter. “As we left home, Jack was very much still talking about school, university, and sporting triumphs and disasters. Now we have long discussions about how Australia has changed, even in my lifetime, about the global financial crisis; it’s all grist to the mill.” And then, on page 331, father and son prepare to part after the trip of a lifetime and six months sharing space in a four-wheel-drive they nickname Ping. They split up in Geneva after Jack decides to give his parents some time together in France before he joins them again for Christmas in Paris. “We try to avoid a soppy farewell,” writes Jon. “Standing in the snow, I grab him in a bear hug and he says to me the sweetest thing I could possibly want to hear: ‘Thank you – and I would not change a thing’. I still do not know if he prepared those words of if they just came to him in the moment, but I choked and struggled for something profound to say myself.” In the ABC environment, the pair listen to each other’s reminiscences respectfully. Only occasionally do they butt in to finish the other’s sentence, or contradict the other’s recollection. As Jon says later when Jack goes to buy a coffee, “The trip really was so special and it’s something we’ll always have between us.” No doubt plenty of fathers and sons who read this book will wish for the same adventure, too. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

Precious moments Clockwise, from top: Precious has found a home in Brighton; Debbie Smith with Precious; detail of the front verandah; and native grass tree Xanthorrhoea in an urn on the verandah. (DARRIAN TRAYNOR)

here’s a toddler in Brighton, who insists on visiting a dog named Precious every night before bed. The dog, belonging to his neighbours, Debbie and Ian Smith, is 1.5 metres tall and, as her name suggests, totally child-friendly. Made of steel with a bronze patina, she has an endearing expression that never changes. Precious was conceived in the studio of Geelong sculptor Karen Pegg and came to the attention of the Smiths at the Melbourne Art Fair in 2008. Debbie recalled their first meeting: “We both stopped and smiled at this dog. Then we stood and watched the reaction of other visitors and it was the same – everyone smiled.” Debbie had been redesigning the garden of their newly acquired Victorian home at the time Precious first crossed their path. She knew she didn’t want a traditional fountain as a garden feature and wondered if this sculpture would suit her concept. She refused to be deterred by the fact that the artwork was not intended to be kept in the open. Exposure to the elements would take its toll on the metal but Debbie, her mind made up, decided to deal with any rust problems when they occurred. Precious was coming home, and she would be an outdoor dog. They placed her at a jaunty angle between the front door and fence, part guard dog, part playful puppy gazing hopefully over to the park opposite. Since then, she has had one short holiday with her creator, who spruced up her coat with a special varnish. One of the unexpected pleasures Precious has brought into the Smiths’ lives is her propensity for inducing conversation. Parents bring children over from the park to visit and passers-by regularly stop and chat to Debbie when she’s in the garden. One neighbour commented that he wasn’t sure about the idea at first but admitted “she’s really grown on me”. This individual approach continues throughout Debbie’s garden. You’ll find combinations that haven’t been thought of before. On the front verandah is a native grass tree (Xanthorrhoea) in a glazed emerald-green urn. Unusual, different and quite stunning. Debbie describes her garden as contemporary. To me it’s eclectic and original. She has highlighted the Canary Island date palm (almost as old as the house, which was built in 1892) with a drystone wall built by Gary Sullivan from Gardenridge Living Architecture, the group that designed the garden and maintains it. “It was fascinating to watch Gary piecing it together like a jigsaw puzzle.” Another essential aspect of the design is the array of bottlebrushes that are subtly integrated into the front garden. Both Ian and Debbie grew up in Broken Hill, a long way from Brighton, and the bottlebrushes serve to remind them of their childhood while attracting the rosellas that they love. It was a friend who alerted me to the front-garden sculpture that caught her eye when out walking. Jane stopped in her tracks and then smiled. Just another Precious moment. \

he long and winding road leads from Eltham to this stunning house that is set back off the road in a wonderful natural environment. There are views through the treetops or across the valley from every room. The rooms are large and light. Walls of windows help bring the outside in and contribute to the warmth and style of the house. The local wildlife – from birds to kangaroos – are frequent visitors. Add to that large entertainment spaces, a study and retreat, two bathrooms, including an en suite and a fantastic undercover al fresco area and swimming pool, and the picture is complete. Life in Research – in this case, on just over two hectares – doesn’t get much better than this. “We love the soaring ceilings and views from the clerestory windows plus the spaciousness and light of the house,” says the vendor. “Having lived outside London before, we were delighted to find such a lovely home in the forest so close to the city. At night we love to look out across the valley from the deck and the lounge.” Despite the rural ambience, this split-level house is only four minutes’ drive from the heart of Eltham.

No expense has been spared on this quality renovation.

ELTHAM The vendors have lovingly renovated this house over a span of 10 years – nothing was done cheaply, and it shows. The perfectly manicured front garden is the first example, with shrubs and grass providing a nice contrast with a couple of mature trees. The interiors are coloured olive and cream above polished hardwood floors, with some parts of the house softened by the addition of wool carpets. The living and dining rooms are on the right of the house as you enter, but the rear of the house is a particular highlight; the family room opens right onto the kitchen (which has Ilve appliances, granite benches and splashbacks) via a meals nook with a bay window. From the family room, sliding glass doors open onto a roomy outdoor entertainment area. Also outside, the terraced back garden ascends almost dramatically; it’s further evidence of the amount of care put into the house, with nary a shrub out of place. There’s a pool and spa on

Toorak Court is home to some spectacular houses, and this is no exception. The magnificent topiary outside is a prelude to the well-kept interiors, all clean lines shown off by the picture windows at the entrance. Inside, you’ll find a study that opens onto the garage and a kitchen with a walk-in pantry and granite counters and splashbacks. The kitchen, meals and family areas form an L-shaped expanse with views of the outdoor entertaining area, which is in the formal resort style. The pool is bigger than you might expect, and there’s a spa, too. All four bedrooms are upstairs; the main bedroom’s walk-in wardrobe is massive. There’s an abundance of storage throughout, and lots of excellent features such as upstairs/downstairs zoned alarms and intercoms. \ HARI RAJ

MILES REAL ESTATE, 9497 3222 1/117 Locksley Road, Ivanhoe Price: $850,000 – $950,000 Auction: September 18 at noon

When this plot of land was subdivided, the owners built the second house with the intention of eventually moving into it. When the time came, however, they found they were too attached to leave 1/117 Locksley Road, and it’s easy to see why. There is a grandeur to the solid-brick house that is immediately evident, even if it does need a bit of fixing up. The main bedroom cleverly uses his-and-hers cupboards to create the illusion of a walk-in wardrobe, and there’s a panel in the vanity that flips up to reveal a mirror. There’s also a bedroom towards the rear of the house and a study attached to it has separate access, perfect for a home office. It’s close enough to Ivanhoe and Eaglemont to access the best shops, schools and the Eaglemont train station. \ HARI RAJ

GREENSBOROUGH Set on a 970-square metre block of land, this house adds to the privacy of its court location by being set back from the street. It’s actually right next to an easement, which features a basketball court. For all intents and purposes it is an excellent family home, with lots of room for kids of all ages to spread out and have their own space. The living room is on the right as

you enter, which looks out onto a deck. Up a small flight of stairs is the lounge room, which in turn opens onto a covered deck, protected from the elements by clear outdoor blinds. The two decks are connected to each other, forming the first of the outdoor entertaining areas. The kitchen and its roomy walk-in pantry are just off the dining room. A small corridor leads to the back of the house, with three bedrooms (each with built-in wardrobes), a study area with a built-in desk and the main bedroom, with its

walk-in wardrobe and en suite that stretches along the far side of the house. The dining room opens into a massive expanse of a room, replete with a bar. The vendor currently has a pool table in the space, but it’s big enough to do with as you please. There is also a pool and spa, with a gazebo and a patio for outdoor entertaining. There is plenty of room for cars, with a carport at the front of the house in addition to a garage and a fairly long driveway. \ HARI RAJ

Stunning single-level lifestyle opportunity enjoying open-plan living has generous bedrooms, maintenance-free courtyard, new bathroom and kitchen (dishwasher), GDH, split-system A/C, alarm, plus remote lock-up garage and an extra car space. Let's eat lunch @ Cafe Matto, 136 Burgundy Street Let's eat dinner @ Cellini, 191 Burgundy Street Let's drink coffee @ Cafe Burgundy, 138 Burgundy Street

Modern, sophisticated and showcasing the finest of fittings and finishes, this house adds an exotic touch with a superb teppanyaki hotplate set in the open-plan living precinct. Let's eat lunch @ Nillumbik Cellars, 11 Chute Street Let's eat dinner @ Creeks Cafe & Bar, 29 Chute Street Let's drink coffee @ Coffee On Diamond, 12/72 Main Hurstbridge Road

If you believe the statistics, people hang onto their houses in Viewbank. The average length of stay is 27 years, which may account for the fact that this house has had only two owners since it was built in the 1970s. The property offers a lot of house and garden for what appears to be a very affordable price. Set on 777 square metres, it has a large entry hall, living room, meals area and kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, including an en suite and laundry. But the surprise is the fully self-contained bedroom or rumpus room plus study with its own entrance that could be used as a home office or a children’s playroom. Original 1970s features include wallpapered feature walls, the strata stone surrounding the gas heater in the living room and plenty of timber panelling. The house needs some work to restore it to its glory days. Beneath the carpet – long due for replacement – there are hardwood floors that would look fantastic if they were polished. But the zoned living that people want now is already in place, with bedrooms well separated from the living areas. \ MARIA HARRIS

Price: $460,000 + Auction: October 9 at 11 am

High on the hill, with views over the treetops, this house offers a low-maintenance and convenient lifestyle. Low-maintenance because the cream-brick exterior never needs painting; floors are polished and there are large expanses of tiles in the bathrooms. Convenience comes from a position that is only a 10-minute walk from Greensborough and Montmorency stations, local shops and Greensborough plaza. The house, which has been completely renovated and extended, is light and airy. The main bedroom, with an en suite bathroom, has views over the trees, while the living/dining room and kitchen also have views past the elevated front verandah to the greenery. The breeze is wonderful in summer, the owner says. Bedrooms two and three, both with built-in wardrobes, are off the hall that leads from the living area to the back of the house. A laundry and second bathroom are nearby. Al fresco entertaining is catered for by the spacious paved courtyard garden that extends along the northern boundary of the house. Gas ducted heating, air-conditioning, a water tank, garage and carport are more features of this property. \ MARIA HARRIS

*Listings provided by campaigntrack

the three Ps still holD the KeY to the MArKet has sPrinG sprung and, in classic election

parlance, the first booths are in. Do we have status quo or are the winds of change sweeping through the spring property markets? The market performed strongly (for sellers) between April 2009 and April 2010. The Foreign Investment Review Board rule changes (April 2009) encouraged significant top-end demand from Asian buyers, which effectively kick-started the whole top-end Melbourne market and helped pull us out of the GFC. It is generally accepted that the market then clawed back the GFC losses of 2008 (10-20 per cent-ish) plus maybe another 10 per cent, creating values on many quality houses above the December 2007 peak. Since Anzac Day 2010, the market turned downwards. There were huge auction numbers in May, but not everything sold, leaving a winter overhang (numbers of unsold homes), particularly in Bayside. Combined with Melbourne’s winter buyer psyche (inaction) and an oversupplied market, prices fell significantly (the general consensus is it fell about 10 per cent from Anzac Day’s peak to election day).

Since election day, we have had three weeks of private sales and auctions and the market has clearly spoken, but the message is mixed. Fencesitter, you cry. No – the message is just different from the different sectors. Let’s look at the three Ps in markets. POsITIONAL MArKeTs Bayside: Bayside’s first two auction weeks

were shockers (for sellers); however, the second week gave sellers a glimmer of hope with bidder numbers and clearance rates. If I’m allowed a disclaimer, the first two weeks in Brighton saw lower-quality stock and the private-sale market was very solid on stales (unsolds over three months), with one Brighton week showing seven stales sold for more than a million dollars. We are looking at fewer than 100 bidders per 100 auctions and clearance rates around 50 sold on the day per 100 auctions. Boroondara: Melbourne’s million-dollar

powerhouse started well for sellers. With clearance rates up and bidder numbers up on good turnover, the numbers show the market is strengthening. But it hasn’t had a sustained spring test yet.

diamond Valley: The million-dollar-plus

spring market is looking to have some

substance, albeit on very small numbers. October is the real test. stonnington: A slow start but picked up some momentum in the second post-election week, with a clearance rate on million-dollar-plus homes into the 70s (70 sales per 100 auctions), which had languished in the 50s and 60s all winter. This was on good turnover numbers (20-plus auctions per week) and on some highly priced homes (more than $3 million) as well. However, Toorak is full of discretionary sellers (as opposed to those who have to sell) and the market still has that “fickle” factor to it with election/ government uncertainty. PrICe MArKeTs

The million-dollar-plus mid-market (around $2 million) seems to be making the least noise, especially away from blue-chip precincts. At $1 million, there

“THe MessAGe Is dIFFereNT FrOM THe dIFFereNT seCTOrs.”

are buyers unhoused, therefore properties with reasonable land and building characteristics are still seeing deals done. At the top end, the $3 million-plus market is waking from its winter slumber and, while the number of sales (about 20 in August) is not as mind-boggling as May (almost 50), it is increasing on June and July. PrOPerTY-TYPe MArKeTs:

Family homes are in big demand. Those with wow (four bedrooms, good floor plan, near transport and in the $1 million to $4 million range) are practically guaranteed four to five bidders. However, second-hand properties with poor floor plans and no bargain price tag will struggle to attract interest. This is particularly so even in stronger markets such as Boroondara, where Asian buyers are no longer paying top dollar for second-hand houses. Overall, the market has started on an up note in the east and north but is less than stellar by the bay. There are two big tests coming up: Collingwood on grand final day and the million-dollar market in October. I hope both are passed. Mal JaMes James Buyer advocates www.james.net.au
