METROPOLIS YOURVOICE We need more than awareness ’Rod hits the road It’s not every day you see something that comes straight from the pages of a pulp fiction novel, but this car leapt straight from the pages to the streets of Fitzroy last week. Spotted on Gertrude Street was this epic hotrod that puts every other car on the road to shame. It made everyone on the streets turn their heads, but what we really want to know is this: can we have a ride? readily available pharmaceuticals that have been proven to work.

Property prescription Things never stay still for long, especially in Northcote, which has undergone a re-birth in recent years. Although not one of its most attractive properties, 381-385 High Street is one of the most visible, and now it’s up for sale. The corner building, which houses a chemist, will be auctioned on June 13. Described as a “landmark” building, the auction will be keenly watched by property pundits. With so many changes occurring along the strip, MTW will be interested to find out whether the auction is just what the doctor ordered.

Martin Ferguson has made an enormous contribution to Australian public life and in serving the people of Batman well for 17 years. He is one of those rare politicians who focuses on the issues rather than engage in the sort of personal attacks his Green opponents employ. As a constituent I found him to be thoroughly decent and down-toearth and genuinely interested in my concerns, despite the heavy burdens of being a cabinet minister. Australian public life will be poorer without him but I will be honouring his legacy and the great many things the ALP has done for the electorate – from Clifton Hill all the way up to Reservoir – when I cast my vote at the September election.

‘‘Schizophrenia Awareness Week?’’ (‘‘Stigma struggle’’, Letters, MTW, May 15). Well, I suppose that’s one way to go about it. Having come to depression as a teenager in the ’80s, I identify with stigma. However, I don’t agree that awareness-raising about the disease per se is a key strategy in the battle against mental illness. Rather, we should be focused on shortening the time required by GPs and psychiatrists to properly diagnose and, if appropriate, medicate people with mental illness. I spent almost 10 years on a merry-go-round of different medications before I finally found the combination and dosage that has kept my illness at bay for close to five years now. One of the medications I take is prohibitively expensive because it’s still not on the Public Benefit Scheme. It is readily available and commonly prescribed in the US, but not in Australia. I still find disturbing the attitude of many people towards the use of medication to control mental illness – either shying away from it because it’s “addictive” or refusing to take it because “I can conquer this myself, I don’t need a pill to do it for me”. This is rubbish, and yet still a widely held view, even for people with severely debilitating illnesses such as schizophrenia. So, I would like to see a bit less “awareness raising” and more focus on treatment of the disease, including the development of cheaper,

Council forks out for referendum

Lib candidate knocks Twitter

BY BEAU DONELLY

THE Liberal candidate for the federal seat of Melbourne will shun social media in favour of old-fashioned door-knocking for his election campaign, saying voters don’t care about Twitter. First-time candidate Sean Armistead said he would run a back-to-basics campaign at grassroots level. He would talk to voters face-to-face and seek support using old-fashioned methods such as door-knocking and community meetings. “I’m not going to use Twitter,” Mr Armistead declared. “It’s great to see what someone had for lunch, but it’s not what I’m about. I know the people in this seat. What they don’t care about is Twitter.” Mr Armistead’s decision is unusual, given that 2010 was widely considered to be the first ‘‘social media’’ election and online tools such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are considered essential elements of any political campaign. His move also contrasts with the Liberal Party’s national strategic plans to win government on September 14. The party has launched several YouTube videos, including an infamous clip depicting the Gillard government as a flock of headless chickens. Greens incumbent Adam Bandt and the ALP’s Cath Bowtell will contest the election. Both are already using social media, including Twitter, Facebook and blogs, as part of their campaigns. The poll will be a battle between the Greens and ALP, which held the seat for more than 100 years before Mr Bandt won in 2010.

THE City of Melbourne will stump up more than $70,000 to lobby for local government recognition in the Australian constitution – a campaign lord mayor Robert Doyle has previously said should be shelved. A referendum at the September 14 election will ask voters if they support the financial recognition of local government. If the move is successful, it will guarantee the Commonwealth’s ability to directly fund council programs. Melbourne councillors last week

voted unanimously to chip in $70,556 to help fund the $10 million Australian Local Government Association’s “Yes” campaign.

The contribution, the highest of all Victorian councils, had not been allocated in the City of Melbourne’s 2013-14 budget. Cr Doyle expressed concerns about the campaign as recently as last month, claiming further planning was needed. However, last week Cr Doyle finally gave the campaign his blessing. “[Previously] we didn’t actually have even a referendum question, there wasn’t any public funding available, there was no organisation by ALGA to get themselves moving,” he said. “Now all three of those things

have happened. I now feel that we have a decent crack at it.” The Municipal Association of Victoria, which is collecting the state’s $2 million portion of campaign funds, said constitutional recognition would cut red tape. But the Napthine government opposes the move on the basis that it would blur the roles of government and lead to “poorer overall outcomes for our communities”. “The change will do nothing to protect the current funding levels, and could, in fact, have unexpected repercussion,” Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell said.

Milk bar’s back in business When the Fitzroy North milk bar run by John Estaphan (pictured) burned down in 2008, he didn’t just lose the business – he also lost the family home. John and Sarah Estaphan and their three children had been living behind the building, at the corner of Michael and Falconer streets. To add to their difficulties, a disagreement between the owner and insurance company meant there was no insurance payout for the loss of the business. But five years on, the Estaphans have re-opened their local pride and joy just 100 metres away, at the corner of Michael and Woodside streets. Mr Estaphan is looking forward to seeing former customers return as regulars again.

DISCOVER, EXPLORE, EXPERIENCE CITY OF YARRA

Cool Times Hot City

The City Of Yarra during winter is a magnet for all Melburnians and here’s why: the heat never dies down on the epicenter of culture, food and music. World’s most liveable city…yes! Encompassing cultural, creative, flashpoints, the City of Yarra is definitive Melbourne. In winter it’s really not about the weather, it’s about the art and food. The famous tram system glides from gallery door to venue stage, dining chair to barstool. Richmond’s art galleries take care of the morning’s visual feast and across the way by tram a collection of studios in the Collinwood Arts Precinct show differing media through a new prism. Another way to marry art to a special kind of everyday is The Abbotsford Convent. Explore artist studios, hit the markets for fashion and food, or pop in for lunch, a drink and a wander through the striking gardens. Feast is king in Yarra and the locallyproduced fare appears in simple lunches along Fitzroy’s Brunswick Street, award winning a la carte plates on adjacent Gertrude Street; in steaming Vietnamese banquets on legendary Victoria Street, Richmond. A pre- or post-drink is enjoyed in globally celebrated bars on nearby Bridge Road, cosy bars in Fitzroy, and heated roof tops along Swan Street.

Bernadette Alibrando Arts Consultant & Owner of Walk to Art Q. What is on your list of must-see attractions in the City of Yarra? A. Gertrude Street is an attraction...the people, the art, the wine bars and the shops. Go to Third Drawer Down, and have a cocktail at The Everleigh...buy a hat from Smart Alec. Q. Why do you love living in the City of Yarra?

The music starts there too – the Corner Hotel is key, but every style plays out in the diverse venues on Smith Street in Collingwood and in Fitzroy, where peeling away from the main drag unearths gorgeous pubs and dedicated musicians.

A. It’s quirky, it’s a small Williamsburg NYC, it’s diverse and cultural. You can walk everywhere! Q. What’s a hidden gem in the City of Yarra you would like to share? A. Now that winter is here, I really love the small bar’s that you can hide in. Hide in Bill’s Bar on Smith Street, enter through Huxtaburger at 104 Smith Street.

Driver warning signs make it safer for cyclists

BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

ONE of Melbourne’s most notorious black spots for cyclists will be fitted with illuminated signage to cut the area’s high accident rate. Canning Street, nicknamed “Canning highway”, will be fitted with signs at the Richardson Street intersection in North Carlton in September. The federal government’s Auslink Black Spot funding program will pay the $70,000 cost. A City of Melbourne council spokesman said: “Canning Street is one of Yarra’s busiest cycle routes so these signs are to make motorists coming from Richardson Street aware of that and [cyclists’] likely presence.” The two solar-powered LED signs will be turned on from Monday to Friday during peak times – 7am to 9.30am and 5pm to 7pm. Canning Street carries hundreds of cyclists every day. It has become a high-risk collision area for city-bound riders from

A FURTHER 50 boreholes will be drilled in Melbourne’s inner north as the state government forges ahead with its plan to build the controversial East West Link. Forty-three holes have been drilled at depths of 40 to 60 metres along the proposed route for the multi-billiondollar freeway. The second round of works will follow the Eastern Freeway corridor towards CityLink. More than a third of the boreholes will be drilled in and around Royal Park. Drilling is also planned in Carlton on Canning Street, between Neill and Kay streets, and at the corner of Rathdowne and Princes streets. Three sites earmarked for drilling on Melbourne General Cemetery land will be cleared by archaeological investigations before work begins. “We will be undertaking a seismic survey in Royal Park, which involves burrowing shallow holes [up to three metres] and measuring the density

of underground material,” Roads Minister Terry Mulder said. City of Melbourne councillor Jackie Watts, who last week voted against the state government’s application to continue drilling on council land, described the councillors’ 6-5 approval as a disgrace. “It’s an incremental encroachment on the rights of citizens to have a say,” she said. “Councillors need to

have a closer look at the impact.” Fitzroy Residents’ Association spokesman Tom Keel said residents would continue to fight against the East West Link. A rally will be held at Fitzroy Town Hall at 6.30pm on Thursday, June 13, and the association and neighbouring community groups are collecting signatures for a petition on behalf of Yarra council.

the north when they encounter cars being driven east to west. The Canning Street intersection at Princes Street is another trouble spot high on the to-do list. In March, state Greens MLC Greg Barber told parliament that motorists frequently blocked the intersection illegally. He said this created dangerous situations for the large numbers of pedestrians and cyclists navigating the immediate area. “Because this crossing is mainly a bicycle and pedestrian intersection in one direction and is used by cars in the other, drivers do not seem to understand that they have to keep that intersection clear, just as they would any other intersection in Melbourne,” Mr Barber said. “We need some work by Victoria Police to raise awareness and reduce this problem, which is causing a safety hazard to cyclists and pedestrians.”

Kids give bullies the flick SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

CARLTON Gardens Primary School students will use a $5000 grant to take a stand against bullying. The school is one of 100 across Victoria to share in $450,000 funding under the state government’s Bully Stoppers initiative. Leading teacher Andrew Bloomfield said the money would be spent on production equipment, including a video camera and lighting, which students would use to make short films with anti-bullying messages. He said all of the school’s 265 students would have the opportunity to participate in making the films next term, and they would be screened at a Gardenfest film night in December. “Each class will be responsible for making a film and each of the kids will be given a role, some as actors and others as directors, screenwriters and producers,” he said. Mr Bloomfield said the grant would also fund promotional materials with anti-bullying messages.

School captain Linda Nguyen with grade 5 students Rosie Gathercole and Mithun Atyam

These would include posters, flyers and bookmarks. “We don’t have a massive bullying issue here, but there are kids who feel that they are being bullied,” he said. “We want to help them, show them how to deal with this and where to turn.” Other successful applicants under the initiative include schools that

plan to run a Bully Stoppers Expo, record an anti-bullying song, and build a rock garden with anti-bullying messages. Education Minister Martin Dixon said the funding would have a positive effect on schools and the community. For more information, visit education.vic.gov. au/bullystoppers.

Inner-city bad news on housing, crime and health HOUSE rental in Melbourne and Yarra is among the least affordable in Victoria, according to new figures released by the state government. The Health Department’s latest population data, which uses socioeconomic, education, health and service indicators to build profiles of the state’s 79 local government areas, found the cost of renting in Melbourne’s inner north-eastern suburbs was at an all-time high. The 2012 survey found less than half a per cent of rental housing in the cities of Melbourne and Yarra was deemed affordable, compared with a statewide average of 20.7 per cent. Rental affordability in Moreland and Darebin also was low at 2.7 and 3.5 per cent respectively. The report also found that Melbourne: • Recorded the highest incidence of crime – 278 offences per 1000 people, compared with a state average of 70;

• Has lower-than-average rates of obesity, diabetes and cancer incidence, but childhood immunisation and cancer screening rates are among the lowest in the state. In Yarra: • Drug crime rates are three times higher than the state average; • The number of 15 to 17-yearolds who drink and smoke are among the highest in the state. In Darebin: • 23.5 per cent of residents smoke, compared with a state average of 19 per cent; • More than a quarter of males rate their health as fair or poor, against a state average of 19 per cent. In Moreland: • Residents reported one of the highest rates of type 2 diabetes – 7 per cent compared with an average 4.8 per cent; • More than a third of females engage in physical activity below the recommended guidelines.

Frocked-up flappers were out in force at last week’s premiere of The Great Gatsby in South Yarra. Jam Factory cinema-goers brought the 1920s back to life, clad in sequins and feather boas to celebrate the opening night of Baz Luhrmann’s long-awaited extravaganza. About 100 guests, including Diana Garnica and Tim Webster (pictured) competed for the title of best dressed.

Dancer finds her destiny in writing BY SEAN CAR WRITER Nella Randone has always had a passion for literature – but that doesn’t mean it was easy. Ms Randone, born and raised in Melbourne in an Italian household, said she forced herself to read from a young age. “Having Italian parents meant I never had anyone to read to me in English,” she said jokingly. “It all started through my passion for reading. I have never been without a book.” She has been a professional dancer for 30 years, and said her creative streak began during her days living the ‘‘true gypsy lifestyle’’ in Europe. The Brunswick author has just released her first novel, The House. Ms Randone described her story as a paranormal romance journey and mysterious time travel adventure. She said it was the culmination of her creative experiences and a reflection of her interest in the idea of a parallel universe.

“I am fascinated by the idea of someone else having a hand in our destiny,” she said. “The main protagonist in the story is an escapist and a dreamer.” Set in regency England, The House follows the tale of a woman so absorbed with historical novels that her own reality ceases to offer any hope of romance and beauty. The book is available online at Amazon and ExLibris and at bookshops in Brunswick and Fitzroy.

avid Wenham wanted to be an actor since he was a young boy but, in his workingclass Sydney suburb, it didn’t seem to be a dream that was going to come true. “I knew what I would have liked to have done but I didn’t actually believe it was possible,” he says. “The generation now is infused with that sense of selfbelief and confidence. I was probably at the end of that era where people had to know their place and you don’t actually move out of where you belong.”

It’s fortunate for film and theatre-goers that Wenham was able to transcend this mindset and become one of the country’s great actors, appearing in lavishly funded productions such as The Lord of the Rings and 300 and smaller works including The Bank and even The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, made with his late friend Steve Irwin. We are talking at the Melbourne Theatre Company’s South Melbourne headquarters where Wenham is in rehearsal for a production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, and he’s not going to let a head cold get in the way of telling his story. The famous Robert Redford-like locks are charmingly scruffy today – Diver Dan in SeaChange did for strawberry blondes what Johnny Depp did for moustaches – and in his conversation there are echoes of that insouciant, shoulder-shrugging charm that set many an ABC viewer’s heart beating. With his wry sense of humour and utter lack of pretension, Wenham is a natural storyteller with a moving story to tell. He takes me back to a Sydney suburb called Marrickville in the 1970s, in a household where he was the last child of seven. “There was a boy at the top and then there were five girls in the middle,” he says of his siblings. “It was a very working-class suburb. It was – and quite possibly could still be – the most multicultural suburb in Australia. Back then it contained something like 87 different nationalities. Anglo-Saxons were in a minority. Predominant ethnicities back then were European: Greeks and Italians, a lot of Lebanese. “I loved it. My next-door neighbours were Greek. In our house I’d have dinner at 5pm and then I’d jump the fence into (their) house and I’d have a Greek meal with them.’’ I ask if, as the baby, a lot of parental attention flowed his way. “If you ask my siblings they’d say definitely. They’d say that I was spoiled because of it, and that’s probably fair to say, I suppose. It was a very loud, animated dinner table. When the girls in the family started getting boyfriends and fiances and they’d come round for dinner, I can still remember the look on their faces, not quite believing the raucous level of noise that was surrounding them. “There were quite a few years where most of us were in the house, a relatively small house, although when I was a kid I used to think it was enormous. For a while my bed was situated at the bottom of the dining room table. I didn’t actually have a bedroom myself and I didn’t actually think that was unusual. It was just what I knew. So I’d wake up in the morning and go and get the tablecloth and set the table. That was one of my jobs.” Wenham’s father worked in the same job for 49 years as a clerk for a company, and when young Wenham was old enough for school his mother took a position as a secretary at Newtown Boys High School.

COVERSTORY

The area in which he grew up turned out to be useful for an aspiring actor. “I was certainly one-out (wanting to be an actor) but it didn’t work against me. In fact it probably worked in my favour. Although I was quite sporty, I was also very good with my mouth. I could impersonate people, I could entertain people. That was something that people appreciated. “In all honesty I was a bit of a smartie back then. And I probably incited some violence in some particular instances because of my mouth. I could stir the pot, certainly. I didn’t mature until quite late so I did a lot of things back then that I look back on and think, how on earth did I get to that place?” In his 20s he worked as a bingo caller to help fund his acting studies. “Initially the numbers came out of a biscuit tin and I had to put them on a piece of cardboard

‘I did a lot of things back then that I look back on and think, how on earth did I get to that place?’ in front of me and then we graduated to using an electronic system so there was a little machine in front of me that was finger-touch. But if you left it on the touch button for more than a fraction of a second, about six numbers would go by. So I’d have to turn around to the board behind and work out which number had flashed by, otherwise the wrath of 800 people would be directed towards me.” Wenham became a nationally recognised figure in 1998 when he appeared as the nonchalant Diver Dan in the ABC series SeaChange. “When it screened here I was in Hawaii filming a movie,” he says. “SeaChange aired the same time as the film The Boys, which got some really fantastic critical reception overseas. That helped open up an international career for me.” When he returned home he had a taste of real fame. “I became instantly aware that there was a recognition factor in the country that I had never encountered before,” he says. “That was a little bit weird but it was nothing that was unsettling.” And he didn’t find it unsettling to be voted “Australia’s sexiest man alive”? “Yes,” he says. “But by God knows who. People like to write these things to sell magazines, I think.” He remembers an amusing story about the moniker. “I went with (The Bank film producer) Robert Connolly to New Zealand not long after that. Robert and I were on morning television and this rather strange character talked about the fact that, ‘You are the sexiest man in Australia, but I can’t see it’,” Wenham laughs. Wenham had a remarkable taste of being in bigbudget films when he was in New Zealand shooting Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings. “There was one moment on set that I thought, ‘I will pinch myself at this moment’ because I realised I was in something that would probably never be repeated on this scale. “On a field, they had built a two-mile (3.2 kilometre) road for a tracking vehicle that was going to hold cameras to drive along as all these guys on horses ride along this field while they shot them. When the horses arrived on the day and everyone was fully armoured, and then they rode, I thought, ‘This is pretty big’. I’ve been in some other relatively big films and you never cease to be amazed at the amount of money spent.”

But he’s done small films, too. With Magda Szubanski he made a film with the late Steve Irwin. “He was an amazing man. What you saw was what you got. There was no act there. I saw him with animals. He was a man with a pretty amazing gift.” Wenham read a poem at Irwin’s funeral in 2006. Wenham comes from a strong Labor family. His father was a close friend of Whitlam government minister Fred Daly. Wenham handed out literature on behalf of Maxine McKew in her successful attempt to dislodge John Howard from the once-safe Liberal seat of Bennelong. “What drove me to do it? I suppose frustration with what was happening in the country at the time.” When he was young he considered a political career “but the politics of politics is the thing that frustrates … Am I a Labor man now? Not necessarily. My politics have changed, I think. I don’t affiliate with any particular party.” Wenham’s passions outside work are eating great food, dance and contemporary art. He would have loved to have pursued a career in dance. “In an alternative universe – I don’t have the body for it and I’m not right for it – to be a dancer would have been amazing.” And he loves AFL, specifically the Sydney Swans. His passion for Australian football is interesting considering he grew up in rugby league heartland, and he tells a moving story about why. “When I was quite young my father introduced me to a friend of his, Les Barfoot, who lived not far from us. He was a butcher from South Melbourne. On Saturdays I used to walk past the Town Hall milk bar on Marrickville Road. My parents used to give me money and I’d buy a packet of jubes for his wife Doreen who was confined to a wheelchair. I’d give the jubes to Doreen and I’d watch on a black and white TV what was then the VFL (Victorian Football League) and he taught me about football. “Les has passed away and South moved to Sydney, and it seemed like the right thing to do to pick up that team as my own.”

Wenham is swathed in a winter jacket today, so it’s difficult to get a handle on how the one-time “sexiest man alive” is going physically. He tells a story about his rigorous training schedule to get in shape for 300, the epic retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae. The need for buffness meant five months of “ridiculous training”. Along with the cast and stunt crew, Wenham trained with a strength and conditioning expert, Mark Twight, who helped give him and the others the appearance of Spartan warriors. “I found myself in a peak of physical fitness that I wasn’t in in my 20s and 30s. I had to get very fit.” Wenham and his partner of 20 years, Kate Agnew, have two daughters – Eliza Jane, nine, and Millie, four. His thoughts on fatherhood? “It’s the best thing,” he says. “It’s the No. 1 thing in my life. It’s the thing that gives me the most joy, being with the kids, seeing them grow and change.” At 47 he’s an older dad. “I think we’ll be fine with these two kids. Would I go again? No.” He may be widely recognised as one of the country’s strongest talents, but reputation counts for nothing in the Wenham household. What do the kids think of their dad’s acting? “Sometimes at home they think my acting stinks,” he smiles. “I think I’m rather funny sometimes but they just roll their eyes at me.”I The Crucible by Arthur Miller opens on June 27 at 8pm, at The Sumner, Southbank Theatre.

Singer tunes in ... to find her way home, writes Beau Donelly

D

surfing and living in a St Kilda rooming house. “It was a bunch of lost years,” says Bridge, now 40. “I was in a bad way; depression, anxiety, addiction – all of the things that contribute to a really bad time.”

G6054229AA-a5Jun©FCNVIC

ale Bridge knows what it’s like to have nowhere to go. Eight years ago she ran away from an abusive partner and ended up on the streets. Homeless and battling addiction, she spent the next few years couch-

But in 2007 things started to turn around for Bridge, a passionate singer/songwriter who also plays guitar. She was invited to perform on independent radio station 3CR’s Roominations program, a weekly slot dedicated to issues around homelessness. That initial performance morphed into much more and it wasn’t long before Bridge was a regular fixture on the show. “It was really good for me because I was in recovery and it kept me busy,” says Bridge, who lives in Northcote. “It encouraged me to get involved with the community. There was no judgment there.” Roominations is made by homeless people, for homeless people. It is one of 400 volunteerrun shows aired each week on the Fitzroy station, which was established in 1976 to provide alternative coverage to social, cultural and political issues and to give a voice to minority groups. Bridge says Roominations touches on issues such as drug use and unemployment, which can go with homelessness, but doesn’t try to solve the problem. “We try to put a human face to it,” she says. “Everyone knows about the political side of the issue but there are the people who are the issue. “There are some serious mental health issues that go with homelessness and rooming houses, and it’s easy to get stuck in your own

head. The show gives you an opportunity to get out, the chance to do something. Our guests bring all sorts of different skills and talents; some play their music or read poetry and others tell their stories.” Bridge acts as a mentor to 3CR’s recruits and has taken on the role of presenting a women’s arts and music program on Sunday afternoons. She is also a member of an all-girl punk band, called Liquor Snatch, which she describes as “politically driven but absurdly obscene”. These days Bridge spends less time presenting Roominations and more time behind the scenes. It’s important, she says, to give other people the same opportunity she was afforded. “It took about three or four years to reach a point where I was OK,” she says. “And there’s varying stages of progress; I’ve only got an apartment but it’s stable and it’s mine. I never want to be in that situation again. It’s so debilitating.” 3CR community radio is trying to raise $220,000 this month as part of its annual Radiothon campaign. The station, based on Smith Street, broadcasts programs in more than 20 languages each week and relies solely on funding from listeners to continue operating. Details: visit 3cr.org.au

WAREHOUSE CLEARANCE

Sculptor hails the charms of the City of Yarra. By Priscilla Moca

T

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

he bronze Mr Poetry seems to teeter on the verge of speech. If he could, perhaps he’d let slip what he’s seen in nearly 20 years on his plinth at the corner of Brunswick and Argyle streets. Fortunately his maker, sculptor Peter Corlett (pictured), has been part of the City of Yarra for 44 years and can speak eloquently about the area he was attracted to as a young artist. “It was an interesting area,” he says. “It felt like it was about to take off, and certainly it did. It was always very dynamic and lots of other people interested in the arts live around here – musicians, writers and so on, it was just the obvious place.” Corlett says the area, “fundamentally the same”, still attracts a diversity of characters including the creative types. Corlett, an ambassador for Destination Melbourne’s Discover Your Own Backyard campaign, distinguishes the city of Yarra from other inner-city areas because of how it “hugs Melbourne CBD very closely, but is

bounded by parklands, as well as the Yarra River and Merri Creek’’. “It’s sort of like a dormitory for the city – you step out of the hurly-burly of the CBD into a unique, homespun hurly-burly in Yarra,’’ he says. “People who want to open little cafes and such, they start off because it’s an area where you can be experimental and daring.’’ Details for Discover Your Own Backyard: destinationmelbourne.com.au

MOTORING

Fixed deal in a fix There’s a catch to fixed-price servicing, writes Rod Easdown

F

their dealers are the only customers they have. That’s why a recent kerfuffle in Queensland caught my eye. A woman who owns a small Hyundai went onto Facebook complaining about servicing at a dealer. She accused the dealership of “deliberate fraud” after being quoted an additional $700 in recommended repairs for a standard $300 service. When the media aired her complaint, it led to a string of online comments about how dealers try to stitch up their service customers, from charging for oil changes that haven’t been performed to doing stuff the customer didn’t authorise, such as putting expensive additives in the fuel and engine. Performance of unnecessary work was also a popular topic. Let me state that the bulk of dealerships act responsibly, and modern cars are so complex and mechanically varied that there’s no way I’d have a new car serviced anywhere but at an authorised dealer, at least for the first three or four years. But the cold, hard fact is that maintaining a service operation is far from cheap, and with

SUPPLIED

ixed-price servicing seems to be the marketing idea du jour in motoring. Most recently Volkswagen has offered it across the range for the first six years. Yep, six. It’s a great idea. Owners know where they stand before they bring the car in for a service rather than after, and there are so many of these plans on offer that buyers can compare service costs between a good deal of models. But it may also be opening a can of worms. Some background: the marketing guys have to come up with plans that are financially attractive to customers and also provide cars with enough attention to keep them out of trouble. The plan has to be sold to the dealer group, and dealers are a stroppy lot when it comes to service. Generally they don’t make much on the sale of new cars and they try to claw back profitability through parts and service. If an importer or manufacturer comes to them with a plan to instigate fixed-price servicing, you can bet they’ll go through it with a fine-tooth comb, and if they don’t like it they’ll raise hell. Car companies hate unhappy dealers because at the end of the day

fixed-price servicing the margins are slimming down. The temptation is always there to generate extra income wherever possible. The onus, therefore, is on the owner to ensure all scheduled work is carried out properly and that no unscheduled work is done without permission and a firm quote. I like the guy who busted a service outlet that charged him for rotating the tyres. He’d marked all four with chalk and none had been moved. I

Things you didn’t know about motoring Perth has 11 per cent of Australia’s motorcycles but 25 per cent of motorcycle thefts. The reason, according to experts, is good weather.

BRUNSWICK \ 12 HORNE STREET

T

here is some debate about the history of this one-time conversion from warehouse to audacious house, most often touted as a former paint shop before its rebirth as a dwelling in 1999. What isn’t left to question is its liveability. Not that one would guess as much from the outside: presenting as an angular block of grey, there is a blink-andyou’ll-miss-it quality to the two-storey property when viewed from the road. Yet it’s that very subtlety that so thrilled the vendors when they bought the property four years ago. “Everyone is always amazed when they come through it,” says vendor Emma Grant. “The contrast between out and in is really marked, with the way the house flows through, we just always felt really spoilt. It’s such large proportions throughout.” It’s an apt turn of phrase. For those familiar with the space limitations of inner-city real estate, the presence in this house of two separate living areas alongside a larger-than-expected backyard belies its stern and compact frontage. That feeling of having room to move begins at the front door. Push past the heavy-duty street-facing door to enter an atrium with room for bike storage (handy with the Merri Creek trails virtually at the front door). A second, internal front door promises extra security and an effective buffer from street noise. The end effect is of being cocooned, a feeling the vendors have deeply appreciated. A smart architectural approach has done much to imbue character into what is essentially a basic rectangular footprint. An unbroken visual line from front door to near back helps to create a feeling of cavernous space. Any possible coldness is offset by the warmth of polished timber floors and flushes of green viewed in the front atrium and a side lightwell-cum-courtyard. The area encompasses the living room, a small step-up creating a delineation of space between this and the adjoining dining room. It is a smooth segue to the combined kitchen, meals and family living areas. Here charcoal, black and pale timber cabinetry and benchtops enhance the warehouse theme. As with the front of the house, any criticism of a too-stark interior is quickly cut off by the sight of verdant bamboo thrusting out of the raised garden beds in the rear courtyard, the rude green marching side by side with delicate silver birch to create a pleasing East-meets-West vibe. Upstairs, the two bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and share a bathroom while the main bedroom, which is a touch bigger, has a real bonus of a secluded balcony with city views. A steel grate on the ground allows the climbing vines from the atrium beneath to push up and soften the space. A large landing at the top of the stairs is a flexible space. Designated as a study, it could easily become an adult reading retreat or a child’s rumpus play area. There are extras, of course, from the laundry and powder room that services the downstairs to the innovation of the Art Cool air-conditioning units in the upstairs bedrooms. But proximity to trams, trains and Northcote’s High Street aside, the real appeal is in the uniqueness of the house itself. A stylish cocoon as shelter from outside. \ SARINA LEWIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

There is a Tardis-like quality to what appears to be a traditional Victorian block-fronted weatherboard house built circa 1900. It’s a sense directly attributable to the additions that (over time) have combined to create a quirky property threaded through with a dash of country style: the latter being the glue that brings the house together. Elaborate ceilings in the two front bedrooms and lounge may not be original, but are certainly attention getting: think ornate roses centred by decorative cornices. An original fireplace in the kitchen has been bricked up, whitewashed and converted into storage, establishing a kind of first settler’s feel enhanced by a built-in crockery cabinet and the thick timber of an L-shaped benchtop. The open-plan meals and family rooms snuggle under a sloping timber roof, the area annexed onto the original floor plan. A gas pot-bellied stove and timber sliding barn-style doors to the backyard are eccentric additions. There is a single-car garage, with laneway access, with space for a workshop. \ SARINA LEWIS

As it’s opposite Peppercorn Park, residents can benefit from shady greenery while letting council attend to maintenance of the park. The area was the site of the Newmarket Cattle Yards at the turn of the century and, though the short street is quiet and cosy, it’s only a brief commute to the city. A pebbled forecourt announces the semi-detached, red-brick building and the two-storey floor plan is neat and practical. Downstairs, the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area kicks off with a carpeted living zone adjoining the front court through glass doors. Wrapping around the dining and kitchen area and reached by side and back doors, the private rear courtyard is brick-paved and the garage opens to Crichton Lane. Both upstairs bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and balconies. The bathroom has a bath and shower. A powder room, laundry, heating, cooling and storage add to the attraction. Horseracing fans may figure in the interested market, with singles, couples and small families wise to the area’s amenities and vibrant, village feel. \ KAY KEIGHERY

There is a particular appeal to this modern two-storey townhouse (one of eight) promising a fresh start with its bold linear appeal and straightforward floor plan. A feel of substance to the heavy swing of the glossy cream front door speaks volumes for what’s within. Open-plan living, kitchen and meals areas are spread over the lower level, a light-filled space opening to a small atrium courtyard on one side, and a timber decked area on the other. The latter outdoor area is softened by greenery, the space enhanced by a covered double garage that remains open to the yard at the back – remove the cars and find extra room for a summer party. Upstairs, find three bedrooms (each with built-in wardrobes) circled around a bathroom. Not that the main needs it, serviced as it is by an en suite. It’s held together by a continuity of colour scheme centred around charcoal, cream and red timber hues. Not to mention the gloss of appointments: think Smeg stainless-steel kitchen appliances, stone benchtops, and split-system air-conditioners throughout. \ SARINA LEWIS

Uni Blacks give up top spot

Teen batsman Matt Short’s star is rising after blazing a century for Australia’s U19s, writes Daniel Paproth

University Blacks lost top spot on the Victorian Amateur Football Association A grade ladder following a thrilling three-point loss to reigning premier Collegians on Saturday. In a low-scoring affair dictated by the conditions at Main Oval, just nine goals were kicked for the game. Five of those came in the opening quarter, where Collegians took a three-point lead. Only five behinds were kicked in the second term, and Collegians held on to claim the four points. The University Blues fared far worse, losing its sixth game of the season by 92 points against St Bede’s/Mentone Tigers. The Blues remain in the relegation zone after the loss. The game was all but over by quarter-time with the Blues 58 points down. Fitzroy claimed its second consecutive win of the B grade season and got some revenge with a seven-point win over Parkdale in a rematch of last year’s C grade grand final. Will Pickering booted four goals in the come-frombehind win. The Roys trailed at every break – by 23 at quarter-time – before kicking two goals to one in the final term to snatch victory. In the Northern Football League’s division one, Northcote Park had a 46-point win against Lower Plenty and West Preston Lakeside lost to Bundoora by 53. In Division two, Fitzroy Stars defeated Hurstbridge by 16 points while Reservoir had a 10-point win over St Mary’s in division three.

att Short lost his opening partner early. Australia was 1-0, after New Zealand had declared nine wickets down for 385. But 17-year-old Short is not one to panic. Opening for the Australian under-19 side, he scored 113, and by the time he was out caught behind, Australia had steadied to 3-188. The Aussies would go on to declare four wickets down for 420 and win the match with relative ease; Short was bumped down to eight in the order and his fellow first-innings centurion Sean Willis didn’t bat. “It was my first game so I went in pretty nervous,” Short says. “But once I got out to the pitch I felt pretty normal. I just went with it and had a good day. “You have good days and bad days and that was a good one I suppose.” The tour to New Zealand, back in April, was Short’s first with Australia. The team also played three one-day games, Australia winning the first two by seven and eight wickets respectively before losing the dead rubber on the last ball of the game. Short made 13, 73 and 21. It has been a quick rise for Short, originally from Ballarat and now playing with district club Northcote, that all started around the Christmas period. “I played all my juniors at East Ballarat,” he

Short road to the top says. “I moved to Northcote just after Christmas, played my first game in the seconds and then the next week I was in the senior team.” With good reason – he scored 128 in his second XI debut, the highest any Northcote batsman made for the year. “Having a good state carnival for Central Highlands pushed me into the under-17s Victorian team, then I was picked in the 25-man squad for Australia and made it from that. “It’s all happened pretty quickly and it was the pathway that got me over the line. It’s been a big step from late December to now, it’s all gone really quick since juniors.” Short got a few starts in the first XI for Northcote, making 37 and 25 against North Melbourne and 21 in the Dragons’ final-round win over Geelong, only the first XI’s third win for the season. Short hopes to be part of the Australian under-19 team playing in a tri-series with India and New Zealand beginning June 30 in Darwin. “Hopefully I’m picked for that and hopefully in two years from now I’m pushing for a spot in the senior Victorian team,” he says.
