Strange how it never quite works out that way in Australia, as the rather crude levers that the central bank has at its disposal to control this situation would indicate (rates up! No, rates down!). Could there instead be something a little amiss with the way we measure our prosperity? Slow building starts are another cause for concern, but just how many new homes, on the requisite quarter-acre block, can this country sustain? This island continent of Australia is just about to begin hosting and supporting the oldest population it ever has since white settlement, and you better believe we don’t have enough money to cover that – particularly with baby boomer life expectancy spinning off into infinity and beyond. Maybe prosperity, and a country’s ability to pay for itself, now has to be measured in a different way.

e’s a force of nature and not to be argued with. Which is why I didn’t when Jeff Kennett strongly suggested I visit the reading room at the State Library before writing this article. I had asked Kennett to reflect on how he felt about the legacy from his seven years as premier – was it the grand prix track at Albert Park, Federation Square, or Jeff’s Shed (Melbourne Exhibition Centre)? “The physical structures are themselves not important, and they will always change,” he says. “But of all the things that we did that I think best symbolises our period – it’s none of the things that you’ve mentioned. It’s re-opening the reading room of the library and re-opening the dome to sunlight, which had been closed. (Renovations were undertaken while in government and it was re-opened in July 2003). “That building to me is a legacy of Sir Redmond Barry, when he had a vision back in the 1850s and ’60s to provide Victoria’s cultural assets for a population much bigger than existed at the time. “In one sense that reading room gives a ray of light to all those who may be studying or reading below it. To me that’s the thing that both symbolises and gives me the greatest pleasure. I think it is the finest piece of architecture of its type in Australia.” Kennett sometimes goes in there to “just look at it”. “Everyone says, ‘Oh you were about major events and everything else’, but while we were addressing the economy we were also giving the people hope through our major events programs (and through our) cultural program, and you can’t have a modern city unless it has a strong cultural heart.” I’ve met Kennett at his Richmond office. His new, slightly intimidating buzz-cut hairstyle is today softened by a willingness to discuss anything – including his recent barney with Garry Lyon, who has taken over temporarily as Melbourne’s football manager. Kennett said Lyon was effectively being a kingmaker at the club. Lyon responded by referring to Kennett’s “bully tendencies” and that Kennett was “ignorant, ill-informed or lying”. “It’s one thing to be a commentator about what’s happening in football; it’s another thing to be involved,” Kennett says now. “There are many people who comment on football who have never employed a person, never paid any payroll tax, never been responsible for an organisation … They’ve never had their sleeves rolled up and been involved. “My expressions were, in one sense, an expression of frustration. (That) the future of Melbourne was all about the coach. If an organisation is being challenged, you have to review the whole organisation; to start at the top. My concern was that three months might be a very good contribution, but really to turn a business around by focusing just on the football department flies in the face of what I understand needs to be done.” What about the “bully tendencies” and that Lyon’s view that Kennett “needed to be stood up to”? “The journalists and broadcasters can talk about any club at any time. If any of us have a point of view, in many cases they don’t like it. That response was (one) 6 The weekly review \ september 21, 2011

to an individual who’d made a comment … Doesn’t surprise me (or) worry me and I’ve seen him since. It’s fine.” He says he will be sad to step down as president of Hawthorn Football Club. “I’m going to miss my intimate involvement with the club and certainly a lot of individuals there. There have been some wonderful personal experiences with the staff or the players or the coaches … In six months’ time I will have readjusted to the new challenges in my life.” Kennett is happy with the state of the club he’s overseen for six years. “We put into place a business plan, which we spelt out to our members,” he says. “Five years, two premierships, 50,000 members. We’ve gone from under 30,000 members to the first club to get to 50,000, and we stand at 56,000. I leave my successor with a good board, a united board, good personnel and exceedingly good prospects.” Twelve years after he lost power as Victorian premier, I asked Kennett to reflect on his time in power. “I think it’s like everything I do. I enjoy the experience, I enjoy the ride, do it to the best of my ability. But when that period is over I don’t look back wanting, I don’t look back judging others who follow me. I look more to the future and what I’m going to do next. We had the most wonderful time. We stuck to the governance principles that drive my leadership at Hawthorn or beyondblue or any of the boards that I’m on. “And while there were people who didn’t always agree with what we were doing, I think the outcomes speak for themselves and Victoria today continues to live off that period of readjustment and our investment in the future, be it infrastructure, be it in the arts, be it in sport. I finished my term as a very happy fellow. “I have never looked back and said, ‘I wish I hadn’t lost’. I have a philosophy in life that everything happens for a reason, and I very quickly moved on to the next phase of my life.” I again asked Kennett about his political legacy. “The greatest outcome of our time in government was that we restored a level of confidence among Victorians in themselves and in their state,” he says. “Because when we inherited government – what’s the capital of Victoria worth? Two bob. We were the butt of jokes all around the country. Victoria became the place that set the standard for health reform … reform of local government, major events.”

“When I wake up in the morning it’s like Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and the cannons firing.”

He speaks with pride of “the infrastrucure that we allowed to develop”, including the archways into the city. “I said to the architects, ‘I want a piece of sculpture that when people pass through it they feel as though they are entering a new experience,” he says. “It’s not until you come up the Bolte Bridge that this whole city opens up in front of you, and it’s a wonderful experience. I always enjoy it. “Sculpture plays a big role in the city. The gateway is a piece of sculpture, the tunnel is a piece of sculpture, the Bolte Bridge is a piece of design, of sculpture. Sculpture everywhere. I loathe with an intensity that ferris wheel (the Southern Star Observation Wheel above the Harbour Town shopping centre at Docklands) that’s going up there. That is to me a blight on the sightline. I know what it’s designed for; it’s to draw people down to that shopping precinct, so it’s been designed as a piece of honey,” he says.

K

ennett says his work as chairman of the mental health initiative beyondblue, which takes up 40 per cent of his time, represents the most important work he’s done. “When I started at beyondblue I had really no idea of how we were going to be able to change things,” he says. “But, again, with a good team of people, a good board, a good CEO … we are well on the way to changing the priority attached to mental illness in this country. While there’s still a lot of work to do, the stigma is disappearing. People are talking about it openly. “We’ve changed the priority of governments, so governments are now spending considerable amounts of money on mental health.” Kennett recently launched Liberal politician Andrew Robb’s book, Black Dog Daze, about Robb’s struggle with depression. Robb had telephoned Kennett asking for his help. “I would get three or four calls a week from people wanting assistance,” he says. “That is the most important part of my life, outside my family, and that will continue indefinitely because I am so attached to it. And now it’s seen as a bipartisan effort, every politician, every party supports the work, the community support it, 96 per cent of the Australian community know of beyondblue, and to have achieved that in 11 years is an extraordinary effort. “I get calls like that every week from various people some high-profile, some not, some from premiers who have rung me with a minister or backbencher who’s experiencing trouble. And regardless of the party, they all have confidence in my standing as chairman that they can speak to me in confidence.” Kennett has often been approached to rejoin mainstream political life. “A lot of people say, ‘You should go back’ but I’ve been there, done that.” As Kennett decides on his next move after Hawthorn, he has plenty to occupy him, including his garden and grandkids. “I spent Saturday in the garden, out there remodelling, doing my vegie garden, which I love very much indeed. I get up at the crack of dawn and you’re

there until 4 or 5pm and then we go out and have dinner with friends. “I’m now at that fortunate stage of my life – although I hope there are very many years to come – that I now have six grandchildren. They are the wonderment of life. It’s just extraordinary. I get so much pleasure from being with them and I see them very regularly – two, three, four times a week.” I mentioned the trend of children asking their parents to do lots of babysitting. “My children haven’t done that because we always make the offer. We’re first. “I live a very full life. I hope I have the mental and physical capacity to continue to do it. It’s why I say, in order to live as healthy a life as possible you’ve got to be active – mentally active and physically active. If you are, you can genuinely sleep better at night.”

A

s premier, Kennett said he would put aside yesterday’s problems and start each new day with a fresh slate. Was that always the way he felt? “It was. It became so partly because of my army training where you realised that you had to grab your sleep when you could, because if you were required in a difficult situation to be alert you might not be able to discharge your responsibilities properly to yourself or your colleagues. It was reinforced after I was (preselected) to Parliament in ’76 when I was involved in a car accident, which reinforced how short life can be. So therefore live it to the full. “Being busy keeps you young. Being busy, in many cases, wards off boredom, illness, anxiety. I often say retirement, in one sense, equates to death. If you want to die, just retire. That’s not to say you shouldn’t change what you’re doing but you’ve got to be busy and active the whole time, and that’s what I like about life. “Most Australians don’t value the gift of life. Most Australians are complacent about life. Most Australians just think life is going on. When I wake up in the morning it’s like Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and the cannons firing – I’ve got another 24 hours, and I’m grateful for that. I give thanks for that. And I start the next day fresh. Life is very, very exciting.” \

vegetables, chicken in sweet-and-sour sauce, beef in black-bean sauce. There are pages of them, each listed according to the main protein ingredient, including shark fin, or as rice and vegetarian dishes. And my reviewer’s heart skips a beat. I’ve heard good things about this neighbourhood Chinese restaurant, but discovering its secrets in a single meal will be a challenge. It’s the sort of menu you want to dip into again and again – and I suspect there may a few disappointments along the way. Do we try the classics, or mine for a gem? But then, smiling, besuited owner John Lee lets us know there’s fresh mud crab today, at $30 per person. It’s from Darwin, he says, where it’s apparently legal to sell female mud crab. I don’t spare a lot of thought about the sustainability of this, despite having deliberately skipped the shark fin section of the menu. It’s offered with a variety of the house sauces from Triple King’s XO to ginger and spring onion sauce, but we ask for advice. “Do you like it spicy?” Lee asks. He suggests a Singapore sauce and, later, brings out the live crab for show-and-tell before it’s cooked. Lee and Martin Wong opened Triple King in April 2008. Lee worked at the Dragon Boat Restaurant as its general manager for 14 years and Wong’s background includes Shark Fin Inn and Plum. “He’s worked in Singapore, America, Hong Kong and Macau,” says Lee of his business partner. “He’s very well known in Chinese society and the restaurant industry. He was working in New York during 9/11 and, lucky for us, it made him decide to come back to Melbourne.” Wong’s Hong Kong-style Chinese food borrows a little from many of the places he has worked. His chef’s specials include dishes such as pork spare ribs in tangy orange sauce, oxtail hot-pot in red-wine sauce, king prawns with Champagne sauce and sauteed seafood served on a “golden egg pastry” bowl. But the traditional-sounding entrees were of mixed quality. Finely crafted duck spring rolls, delivered with a sauce that looked house-made, were wrapped in delicate, crisp pastry. The shredded duck and neatly diced vegetables were well balanced, moist and full of flavour. Beside them, the plump, pan-fried dumplings were heavy, doughy and, frankly, disappointing. There was barely any discernible pork filling and the accompanying sauce was a vivid blush-coloured commercial-looking variety. Tender satay chicken skewers draped in a more-than-passable nutty, coconutty sauce were better, as was the Peking duck that arrived next on a yum-cha-style trolley – its pancakes in a steamer basket – ready to be prepared at the table. The meat was of good quality, the pancakes slightly heavy. But Wong was a master with the mud crab. When ours arrives in a big white bowl, the reassembled crab floats in a dark-orange sauce of exactly the same hue as its now-cooked shell.

LEANNE ToLRA REVIEWS TRIPLE KING CHINESE RESTAURANT Its huge claws promise good eating. The sauce is rich with garlic and hint of chilli and is flecked with vivid orange roe that has been fried till slightly crisp. Capsicum and pieces of the shredded crab add texture and there’s a sweet-and-sour component to the sauce too, which has been thickened to a luscious creaminess with egg white. It was the dish of discovery I had been seeking, and was followed by a terrific seafood hotpot, which would probably have been better delivered before the crab. Its more-subtle sauce took a few mouthfuls to appreciate. Served at the table in a cast-iron pot, set inside a cane basket to retain the heat, it was a pretty dish. Plump pieces of fish, scallop, prawn and shiitake mushroom had been tossed through an excellent stock and then scattered with fresh snow peas and broccoli. A fine tangle of vermicelli noodles sat at the bottom and soaked up all the sauce. It was a generous serve and we had obviously ordered too much.

Lee says Triple King has been able to keep its prices down, and its regulars happy, by sticking to the Chinese restaurant BYO tradition. There’s a small wine list comprising mostly inexpensive wines, with a couple of choices by the glass. But that’s an excuse to raid the cellar, or head to the great little bottle shop across the road. \

If you’ve tried a sparkling shiraz, chances are you’ve tried this. Always great value, this is made using the méthode champenoise and spends 16 months on lees before being disgorged and sent out to shops. Flavours of bright cherry, raspberry, mint, blackberry, spice and chocolate show finesse and there’s a fine mousse and a cranberry juice-like drying character on the palate. Fleshy red-berry flavours drive a good finish. You will often find keen prices on this at the chain stores.

I’d read quite a bit about previous vintages of this and wasn’t let down when I tried it recently at one of the monthly wine tastings at Fed Square. Rich, intense flavours of blackberry, glacé cherry, chocolate, liquorice, spice and a hint of mocha oak didn’t disappoint. It is slightly sweet but by no means cloying, with juicy acid acting as a good foil. Drying tannins that offer good grip in the mouth are a highlight of the wine, along with excellent length on the dark berry finish.

I’ve tried the past two vintages of this and have enjoyed both equally. On the nose are complex notes of mulberry, cherry, perfumed rose petals, raspberry and aniseed. Vibrant flavours of plums, berries, spice and leather with a pleasant leafy, grassy character are equally serious and easy to drink – it’s a wine that could be dangerous in the wrong hands. A gentle bead, soft mouthfeel, fine tannins and a dry and refreshing finish round off the wine well.

Matilde

Jane ROCCa talks to an italian fashionista who finds time, between films, to keep up with the latest trends.

D

ressed head to toe in Fendi, with a few accessories by Alexander McQueen, Italian actress Matilde Maggio describes herself as a fashionista. She does, after all, live in Milan – Italy’s fashion capital. At 19, Maggio is merely starting out as an actress but has already appeared in a film alongside Robert De Niro and Monica Bellucci (The Ages of Love) and stars in a coming-of-age flick Martino’s Summer – both showing at this year’s Lavazza Italian Film Festival. She made her acting debut at 16 in Diari, a winner of the Grand Prix Ecrans Junior at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and will next appear in the thriller The Party (La Festa) directed by Simone Scafidi. Maggio is the first to admit that trying to break into the Italian film industry is no easy feat for an aspiring actress, indicating nepotism as a problem. “You can go through many castings as an actress and

“People often ask me if I am a model.”

try out several times, be told you’re perfect for the role and then get told they have chosen someone else,” she says. “Sometimes the director may choose someone who may be the son or daughter of a producer. The problem is that there is plenty of talent but it’s hard for new talent to emerge because of this situation. Having said that, I love my country. I keep away from politics, there is enough talk about that, but Italy is where I was born, where I was brought up, it’s where my family is. I can only smile about it.” In her first Australian visit, Maggio might be jetlagged and checks if the water is OK to drink in Australia (yes, of course, replies the interpreter, ours is one of the best in the world), but she’s looking her immaculate best. Draped in a white Fendi coat with pretty polka-dot lining and 12-centimetre black sandal heels (also Fendi), she adores fine clothes and says she regularly attends Milan Fashion Week when she can. She is also a fan of skull jewellery and dangles her wrist for me to see the sparkly Alexander McQueen bracelet she recently bought and a small skull pendant – which hangs around her neck – another glitzy McQueen number. For a girl who oozes pretty girl-next-door quality, the skulls are certainly edgy and show another side to Maggio. “I have a real passion for fashion,” she says. “It’s something I developed as I got older, maybe because I am in the centre of Milan, that probably has something to do with it. But wherever I go, I like to compare fashion and trends with what I see back home. I also love reading fashion magazines and watching fashion TV shows. I keep informed about fashion as best I can.” Maggio grew up in northern Italy with a lawyer father and architect mother. Her parents split nine years ago and has only recently become reacquainted with her father. She has an older brother, who she describes as the single most important person in her world. “I was upset about my parents’ marriage split, and to cover up for that I used to tell lies so no one would know what was happening in my family,” she says. Perhaps it was these early days of white lies that helped Maggio channel a knack for acting. “Through all of the tough times my mum has been the one who has been closest to me,” she says. “She is the one I have to thank for embarking in this profession. And while I have recently started to see my dad again, it will take time to catch up on nine years. We’re slowly getting there.” In town last week to launch the Italian Film Festival in Melbourne and Sydney, Maggio gave Fendi one more righteous endorsement on the red carpet, wearing a floor-length gown and handbag by the design house. “I like brands that are not your run-of-the-mill types,” she says. “I love wearing lots of colour and geometric styles. I love shoes and handbags but have a weakness for heels. People often ask me if I am a model. I am not insulted but I tell them I am an actress. Maybe down the track it’s something I would do. I do love fashion shoots, and it’s something I wouldn’t mind but, you know what, I don’t think I am tall enough to be a model, but you never know.” \

balancing me, she whipped out this tube of colour and starting smearing her lips. They suddenly burst with creamy colour. While she was applying it she was still amusing me with banter, and I was fascinated how my aunt could balance and entertain me and yet apply the colour so artfully. What was this product and why was it like second nature to my aunt? It had a hypnotic effect on me. Over the years, while being a constant fixture in my aunt’s dressing room, breaking things, smearing colour and spilling perfume, I learnt a lot about make-up and grooming. But my love affair with lipstick never waned.

Things to remember

Lipstick is the first multitasking product. You can use it on your eyes, lips and cheeks. You can control the intensity of the colour and there are myriad colours to choose from. History credits Mesopotamian women with starting the trend of tinting the lips. But it was not until the 1870s that lipstick as we know it today appeared. Guerlain introduced the first commercially successful lipstick made from wax, roses and grapefruit. The popularity of lipsticks never slides. Yes, I know there was a dip in sales five years ago with the onslaught of glosses, but since then lipsticks are back in favour. Whatever the allure or fascination, there is a shade of lipstick that has your name written on it. So turn up a tube and start dressing your lips. \

Use your toothbrush to exfoliate your lips so that the colour sits better. Use a balm to soften lips before applying colour. Lip-liner should never be visible; apply it after lipstick to lock in colour. Lips should complement your skin tone, not your outfit. The freshest, most natural-looking lipstick is the one that closely matches your lip colour. Nude lipsticks are great with a hint of pink. Believe me when I say there is a red for everyone. Thin lips look best in flesh-tone colours. Blot before leaving the house to stop colour from migrating all over your face and teeth.

If a range of products could show Australians to the world, this would be the one. It is sustainable, has a conscience, uses the best and rarest bush ingredients and utilises and respects indigenous remedies like nothing else on the market. I came across this range several years ago; it has an exceptional following in some of the top spas around the world and a legion of international fans that cannot get enough. Li’tya is what we in the industry know as a cult brand or a silent hit. The range is extensive and caters to soothe, remedy and reverse most skin concerns. All products are minimum 98.5 per cent natural and, where possible, certified organic. The brand also sources most of its native ingredients from a co-op that buys from Aboriginal communities throughout Australia. My favourites are Quandong & Camellia hair shampoo and conditioner, Macadamia Facial Hydrating Cream, Marine Collagen Relief Gel and Cherry Alder Body Hydrating Lotion, among others. So indulge all your senses with products that are proudly Australian. The most admirable quality of the brand is that a percentage of Li’tya’s profits helps bolster Aboriginal culture and education.

One of the many highlights of last year’s reading list was discovering Indelible Ink, the story of Marie, a 58-year-old Sydney divorcee whose life is dominated by her large harbourside garden, her three adult children and the Mosman social scene. Marie feels trapped and believes that somewhere in life’s journey she lost her true self. A sudden impulse to have a tattoo causes her old world to tut-tut.

bio BLIGH: WILLIAM BLIGH IN THE SOUTH SEAS by Anne Salmond » $49.95 (Penguin) Naval historians are frequently drawn to the subject of William Bligh. What kind of a man is it whose temper and harsh form of professionalism provokes a crew to mutiny, yet who shows great tenderness towards his much-beloved wife, and who was a brilliant recorder of the places, cultures and people he visited? Anne Salmond, a respected New Zealand academic, starts her story in 1777, the first of Bligh’s three Pacific voyages. After this assignment under the command of Captain James Cook, Bligh then returned to the Pacific islands on the Bounty, then as commander of the Providence.

This is the story of a group of heavy-handed conservative Ohio law enforcers and the local community (including the author) who stood by their friend and defended parents’ rights to celebrate their children through photography. Now in paperback, we recommend it to book clubs that prefer non-fiction titles. \

Kidnapper, escort and incurable romantic Joyce McKinney (above) is the fascinating, slippery star of this compelling new doco. Arrested in the 1970s for the alleged abduction and rape of her Mormon ex-boyfriend, McKinney quickly became a tabloid star, with the public fixating on every salacious detail. McKinney still insists she was rescuing her brainwashed boyfriend from a religious cult, even if she did chain him naked to the bed for three days. To her, this remains an act of pure, misty-eyed romance – a beautiful princess riding to the rescue of her handsome prince. Happily sharing her recollections, McKinney is a gift to any documentarian, as colourful, contradictory and candid as they come. A winning mix of cunning intelligence and hopeless naivety, she grows ever more compelling as she disappears into fantasy. Other interviewees are on hand to tether us closer to the facts. Yes, this virginal princess did make her fortune in the Los Angeles sex trade. Yes, she did once smuggle herself into the UK (poorly) disguised as an Indian. Yes, she did have her favourite dog cloned. Five times. Elsewhere, the truth is up for grabs, with plenty of space left for us to make up our own minds. It’s an unbelievable story and an extraordinary film. Despite relying on talking heads, it rattles around its twists and turns like the most gripping of thrillers. Most of this is down to McKinney, who views her life in such epic terms, transforming her own misdeeds into a romantic legend, that it can’t help but make for captivating cinema. \

Prisoner opens with the sort of dramatic organ music that might announce the arrival of some old-school vampire, all face powder and brimstone. This sense of melodrama underwrites much of the Sydney group’s first LP. Throughout, Hayley Mary’s voice soars and swoops like a particularly angsty bird of prey, lending a genuine sense of danger to what might otherwise be remarkably sturdy rock tunes. As it is, tracks such as Endless Summer and City Girl sound reliable enough to win radio play, while still threatening to veer off somewhere unexpected. It’s a powerful debut, but one that might leave you a little emotionally battered. There’s no less darkness on the second record from Dum Dum Girls, but it’s the moments of light that stand out here. Dispatching 10 Phil Spector-esque pop ditties with a punkish energy, the group stride chin up through heartbreak and disappointment wearing the sort of boots that would make Nancy Sinatra proud. It doesn’t hurt that singer Dee Dee sounds just a bit like Chrissie Hynde, walking a similar line between gutsiness and vulnerability and armed with a equally winning batch of melodies. Certainly, Bedroom Eyes and Wasted Away are irresistibly, hauntingly catchy. Recommended. \

THE FALL AND RISE OF REGINALD PERRIN \ Complete series (Madman DVD)

Most Britcoms of the 1970s seem to have spent the past 40 years circling the schedules, like restless phantoms in beige and paisley. For the most part, any appeal they still hold is in pure nostalgia or a snarky wince at how lame, cheesy or politically incorrect these oft-repeated staples appear. The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin is one show that seems to have somehow survived intact into the 21st century. Its acerbic brand of satire still seems surprisingly sharp. Weirdly, it’s hardly ever to be found on our screens, making this boxed set a rare opportunity to get acquainted. Reggie Perrin (Leonard Rossiter) is a middle-aged suburbanite who becomes uncomfortably aware of the ridiculousness of modern life. In the first series he slowly goes mad – or sane – and ultimately fakes his own death, intending to begin a new life elsewhere. Having done so, he immediately finds himself drawn back to his own life and, disguised as somebody else, begins a romance with his widow. From there, things get ever more farcical. Recently (and poorly) remade, this series is a forgotten jewel. \ mykebartlett@gmail.com

Changing priorities: Radio presenter Derek Guille wants to spend more time with his family. (Shannon MoRRiS)

iT’S ThE RiGhT TiME To Go

16 The weekly review \ september 21, 2011

erek Guille hadn’t given too much thought to his future until the day in November 2007 when his parents were killed in a car crash on the Princes Highway. His father, Murray, was 79 and his mother, Nancy, was 81, and their sudden death caused the long-time ABC broadcaster to recognise the importance of spending time with family. “When something like that happens there’s a feeling of being adrift because where you came from has gone,” he says. “I’m 60 in September, I have two grandsons and my wife and I want to be available for them and for our two children. “We’ve bought a little place in Warrnambool and have just downsized from a house to a one-bedroom flat in Fitzroy. We’re ready for a new phase of our life. This is the right time to go.” When he steps away from ABC Local Radio after his last show on September 22, Guille admits there will be moments of feeling cut adrift once more. “It will feel strange and there will probably be times when I say to myself, ‘What on earth have you done?’ But I’ve been told there is life outside the ABC,” he says, laughing. “My first day out of radio on the Monday I will spend with my wife. I’m looking forward to us having our evenings together again.” Guille’s fascination with radio began as a seven-year-old spending lazy summer holidays with family in Mooroopna. “There were eight of us kids and we spent fantastic Christmases top to toe at Uncle Frank’s and Aunty Margaret’s place,” Guille reminisces in the canteen at ABC’s Southbank headquarters. “I remember being there one evening and listening to 3SR, the local commercial station, and the announcer played a Johnnie Ray song. He then started to tell me stuff about Johnnie Ray – that he was deaf in one ear and about some of the tough aspects of Ray’s life. “That was the moment I loved radio. Because that announcer was having a conversation with me, he was talking to me and the immediacy was compelling. At its best, radio is about the sense of community and relationship you have with the presenter. “You are comfortable enough to have someone who is a complete stranger in your bedroom with you when you wake in the morning, in your bathroom when you have a shower and in your car with you when you are swearing at the person who has just cut you off. Radio, at its best, is a member of your family.” Guille was born in Elsternwick but grew up in Charlton and Bendigo, where his father took a lease on a milk bar and then worked in insurance sales. Later the family shifted to Dandenong, where Guille attended Dandenong High and met his future wife, Barbara. He spent year 12 in the US as part of a student exchange program. He was based in Minneapolis and attended the same high school as Prince – Central High School. “I was the first white student to stay with a black family and I remember there were a lot of meaningful discussions between the exchange program and my parents. I naively thought ‘why?’. But, of course, in the late ’60s, there was a fair bit of racial tension in parts of the States,” he says. Guille returned from the States “confused” about what to do next. His first paid job was in McPherson’s

concept that each program was like a dinner party – “a bunch of people sitting around together and talking about stuff”, he says. He believes the “comfort factor” helped him accrue a loyal group of listeners. “I’ve been around for so long I’m like a member of the family – occasionally I hope to surprise and occasionally I probably disappoint.” Asked for highlights of his evening show, Guille responds quickly. “I’ve had the pleasure of having interviews and discussions with some of the people in the world of music. I have unending admiration for Elvis Costello, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, Mose Allison and k.d. Lang. I can think of few other people I would love to talk to. The 2009 bushfires were another powerful moment for Guille. As he talks about going on the road in the days soon after the fires and hearing the stories of the people affected, Guille begins to tear up and his familiar voice trembles slightly. “We did the first program from Bendigo – as we drove around, the embers were still hot. We knew there were stories that needed to be told and it had me in tears when people felt close enough to me to tell me their stories. It still does,” he says. Guille isn’t yet sure how his last show will pan out. His producer and the marketing department at the ABC are referring to “the Festival of Derek”, he says, laughing. There are plans for a concert featuring some of Melbourne’s best musicians. And then? “TV is a hungry beast so I have some ideas around television and music.” Perhaps he’ll do some MC work. He might dip his toe into the world of media training and he’ll continue performing with a local jug band, the Ugly Uncles. “It’s scary and exciting right now,” he says, smiling. \ sarahmarinos@optusnet.com.au

ou drive down Wattle Grove a ways, and then turn into this house’s driveway, and suddenly you’re overcome by the need to use language possibly best suited to describe the upcoming film adaptation of The Hobbit. Suddenly, phrases such as “over hill and down dale” seem rather appropriate. It’s almost hard to describe how much space there is – let us say that the box that accompanies these words says there’s parking for three cars, but you could probably fit 10 times that number and still be able to open all of their doors. Or we could say there is room for lots of ponies, but then again it is Eltham, where the hectares are as green as they are abundant. Pictures don’t do the block justice, either; there’s something quite graceful about the way the land undulates that requires personal attention. The house is set a long way back from the street, for that extra bit of quiet and privacy. It faces north, which – in breaking news, real-estate fans – is a good thing. There’s an abundance of natural light even on a day still loosely in winter’s grasp, which keeps it a comfortable temperature inside, too. But before we wander through the house, let’s finish discussing the outdoors. There are acacias and Japanese maples and a Japanese-style garden, small and neat and pretty. There’s a pool, nestled among granite boulders and shrubbery for privacy, and some really clever use of embankments. Seriously, if you’re looking to hide the boundary fence, there are few better ways than to have

nice tiers featuring citrus trees, around which a family of ducks happily saunters. The outdoor entertainment area has a view of the pool and a sort of high, wood-edged roof, reminiscent of a Viking drinking hall, that might crop up in a lavish production of Beowulf. The wicker ceiling fan probably wouldn’t, but it’s still a nice touch. All right, indoors! The large block means that the house sprawls over a single level, with the outdoor entertainment area flowing into the family room, which in turn trickles pleasingly into the kitchen and meals area. This last is done in decorative, sturdy granite. Inside, the house is done in more shades of terracotta than previously known to humanity, but they combine to produce a rather comfortable, warm effect. There’s lots of room – the main bedroom is just as you walk in, with a walk-in wardrobe and a view of the driveway to keep an eye on kids or anyone approaching. There’s also a study, in what looks to be a quiet section of the house. The lounge area, like the meals area, features clerestory windows to soak in the surrounds. Down the other end of the house are three bedrooms, two of which feature walk-in wardrobes. Every room has a view. There’s a lot of storage, as you would expect, and the triple garage has a stove, a sink and a heater for anyone who does a lot of work with their hands. Or for rowdy teenagers in exile. But oh, that expanse of green outside. This is Eltham writ large. At 4515 square metres, very large. \ hraj@theweeklyreview.com.au

rosanna You could be forgiven for thinking you had just arrived at a relaxing weekend resort on Banyule Road, one with all the best facilities including a saltwater pool, sauna and picturesque views. What started out as a creative project for the owners has resulted in a new and contemporary interior. No major structural changes were done – only cosmetic. Over the past five years the walls were repainted, floors redone and the kitchen and bathrooms renovated, all with modern influences. Set well away from the tree-lined street, this fourbedroom house will please the whole family. At the entrance is the formal lounge, which has a fireplace and views of the well-manicured front garden. It connects to the formal dining area, where guests can enjoy a meal, courtesy of the ideal kitchen. It has stainless steel appliances, CaesarStone benchtops and views of the north-facing garden and Creekbend Reserve. The meals area has a glass sliding door that opens to a semi-enclosed barbecue space with pool views. Back inside and downstairs is the perfect teenager’s retreat, which also leads to the pool and sauna. The main bedroom is at the front and has ample wardrobe space and an en suite. Two more bedrooms have garden views and another overlooks the pool. \ bianca villarosa

Privacy is at its peak in this secluded residence. Set well away from the road, at the bottom of a steep driveway, it is backed by parkland and on almost 0.2 of a hectare. The entrance opens to the formal lounge, which features a cedar-lined ceiling. It overlooks the formal dining area, near the kitchen/meals area. The kitchen features CaesarStone benchtops and overlooks the barbecue area, an elevated balcony that is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy picturesque views of Eltham. Back inside, the main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. Upstairs are two more bedrooms and a study area that provides tranquil views of the backyard. Downstairs is a perfect teenager’s retreat and another bedroom. Doors open to the paved dining area outside, spa bath, tiered garden with plenty of lawn space and ample storage.

This cosy and inviting brick three-bedroom residence is primed and ready for its new residents. It’s a great opportunity for first-home buyers who want to move in and enjoy all the features that make life comfortable. Here these include an established back garden, polished Tasmanian oak floors, ducted heating and evaporative cooling, an updated kitchen/meals with Blanco appliances and a covered entertainment deck. The polished appearance of this well-maintained house is enhanced by the interesting use of feature colours throughout. The front lounge, overlooking the tree-lined street, has creamy-brown tones; bedroom three has a blue feature wall and the kitchen is nicely offset by yellow tiling. Coming into summer, the outdoor area would be the place to be. The covered deck overlooks the garden. This house is in a quiet street, close to schools (Loyola College around the corner), Greensborough Shopping Plaza and the bypass. \ emma houghton

In an elevated position in a treed court, this house is set among well-maintained gardens at the front and back. A spacious open-plan living/dining area at the front of the house is brought to life by three large windows. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a small en suite with skylight. A central bathroom and separate laundry are followed by two more bedrooms at the back of the house.

The whole lot is undercover, adding to the flexibility of the space. A garage and a shed complete the well-planned outdoors. The features, however, are the lovely garden surrounds and vegie patch. In this location you are just minutes from the Greensborough bypass and close to Greensborough shopping centre and all its amenities, as well as walking distance to the idyllic Kalparrin Gardens. \ emma houghton
