Claims made by a subcontractor of Yarra council, Nigel Williamson, (‘‘Possum man rejects animal cruelty claims’’, MTW, April 3) that Curtain Square’s possums are unhealthy, imprinted to humans due to Animal Active’s supplementary feeding program and overpopulating, are refuted by the facts. Animal Active first became involved with the possums of Curtain Square in August 2000. A population count at the time revealed between 45 and 50 resident possums. A recent daytime count by Ecology Australia found 46 possums. So much for the population explosion myth. We remain committed to Yarra’s Curtain Square Site Management Plan – to gradually reduce and eventually stop supplementary feeding, once the possum fodder trees that have been on council’s agenda since 2001 are planted.

CORRECTION On March 27 MTW published an article, ‘‘Room for laughs’’. The article quoted the Academy of Laughter’s Peter Gleeson as saying he gets people in his show to do really embarrassing things in front of strangers until they laugh. This is incorrect. At no time does Mr Gleeson get people to do embarrassing things in front of strangers – he uses Mexican waves, improvisation and processions to make this happen.

YARRA council has voted to withhold support for a move by paper and packaging company Amcor to have planning overlays on its Alphington site amended by the state government. Amcor has applied to the Department of Planning and Community Development to change the Incorporated Plan Overlay (IPO) to a Development Plan Overlay (DPO). As outlined by Amcor, an IPO

applies to sites that would affect a third party and final approval would go through the Planning Minister. A DPO applies to self-contained sites that are not likely to affect third parties, with final approval given by council. At a meeting on April 9, the council passed a motion to “not support the Amcor proposal for a ministerial amendment”. The resolution included a clause stating the council would be prepared to discuss plans with the developer, Amcor and the community.

Overlay change an uphill battle BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

Amcor Australasia managing director Nigel Garrard said it was unfortunate Yarra council did not support the amendments. “It represents a missed opportunity by all stakeholders to expedite a sale and redevelopment of a vacant site,” he said. Alphington Paper Mill Action Group president Melissa Thyer said if the amendment went ahead, the community would “lose third-party rights”. “It means the developer can challenge anything ... and take it to VCAT,” she said.

MELBOURNE women whose husbands have been charged with child pornography offences will share their stories at a public forum in Fitzroy this week in an effort to lower the stigma attached to the family members of sex predators. The event marks the official launch of PartnerSPEAK, the only Australian peer-support service available to women affected by their spouse’s use of child pornography. The organisation encourages women to share their stories in a confidential online forum and directs users to support and counselling services. Founder Natalie Walker said the partners of sex predators often felt trapped. ‘‘Family and friends might minimise the situation and assume that she will support her partner and bail him out of jail, and if she doesn’t she’s ostracised,’’ she said. ‘‘And at the other end of the scale her inner circle completely isolates her anyway.’’ Ms Walker is encouraging healthcare professionals, teachers and childcare workers to attend the PartnerSPEAK forum, which will be held at Edinburgh Gardens. ‘‘These women are not hooked into any services so if they disclose to someone it’s often a GP or a school teacher,’’ she said. ‘‘These professionals need to know what to do if they’re approached.’’ The forum will host panellists from the Australian Federal Police and child protection agencies. The event runs from 10am on Thursday, April 18. For details, visit partnerspeak.org Web of Support – Page 12

YARRA council will open its revised mobile food van policy for a onemonth public consultation period instead of going straight to a trial. The revised guidelines reduce the minimum distance a mobile food van can park to the nearest take-away food store from 200 metres to 100 metres and will allow multiple vehicles to be allowed under one permit. Langridge ward councillors Stephen Jolly and Amanda Stone voted in favour of releasing the guidelines for public comment. But Melba ward councillor Simon Huggins was against the motion for a public consultation period and said the council should “move straight to a trial”. He said mobile food van operators had “waited long enough”. Cr Jolly said it was “better to proceed in a democratic way” and allow

for public comment before trialling the changes. Cr Amanda Stone said it was a “highly contended topic” between food van operators and business owners opposed to easing guidelines. Three mobile food van operators have been granted permits under the current guidelines – Big Moose’s, Mr Burger and Digging For Fire. Big Moose’s owner Jay Currie said it would be a boost for business if restrictions were eased. “It’s very difficult to get into a good spot that is 200 metres from a busy area,” he said. Mr Currie said Yarra council’s draft guidelines were leading the way as other councils, such as the City of Melbourne, continued to enforce the 200 metres minimum from fast-food restaurants.

Pollies want a chat with tenants: Bandt MATHEW LYNN

BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

PUBLIC housing tenants are being treated like second-class citizens by not being allowed the same access to political communication as other constituents, according to federal Greens MP Adam Bandt. Restricted political communication with public housing tenants was highlighted this month when state Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews was prevented from addressing residents of a Fitzroy housing estate. Mr Bandt, the federal member for Melbourne, said this had been an issue under Liberal and Labor state governments. He said that when he was campaigning in 2010, the Department of Human Services told him he could not distribute leaflets on the housing estate. “People have every right to take a political leaflet and throw it in the bin,’’ Mr Bandt said. ‘‘But public housing tenants should

Greens MP Adam Bandt in discussion with housing estate tenant Brandan Sahnkovic have these rights to get the information.’’ He said community housing tenants should not be treated differ-

ently from other people. “It is not about the rights of politicians, it’s about the rights of residents,’’ he said.

Opposition housing spokesman Richard Wynne said political material had to be personally addressed to housing tenants. “It’s been a long-standing position for many years that material of any nature – political material or advertising material – has to be personally addressed material,” he said. Mr Wynne said that banning political meetings was a “completely different’’ issue. “This is about saying political parties ... are unable to have an engagement with their residents,” he said. Department of Human Services spokeswoman Ruth Ward said some residents had expressed concern about people “gaining access to estates and door-knocking their homes”. Political parties have restricted access to open-space areas and foyers on high-rise public housing estates. Ms Ward said the restrictions supported the department’s view that public housing estates are not public open spaces and should be managed in a similar way to private estates.

State Opposition leader Daniel Andrews plans to address residents at Atherton Gardens on April 24. Mr Wynne said that if the government tried to stop them at that meeting, they would “have it in the street”. Brandan Sahnkovic, who has lived at the Fitzroy Atherton Gardens public housing units in Brunswick Street since 2002, said the government was tying political discussion to government subsidies. “I thought last time I looked, we were politically distant from North Korea,” he said. “Does this mean that all people who receive government benefits get restricted political discussion?” Another long-term Atherton Gardens resident, Joseph Lenger, said paying rent meant he was entitled to bring politicians to the estate to discuss a range of ideas. “Every single politician – whether it’s state, federal or city council – they can come here to promote their thoughts so we know who to vote for,” he said.

Uni suspends misconduct pair BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD TWO La Trobe University students have been suspended following a series of on-campus protests in Bundoora last year. The students participated in protests in July and August after the university announced it would cut up to 45 jobs and hundreds of subjects to save $4.3 million. A hearing on February 8 found Danica Cheesley and an unnamed student had breached the university’s General Misconduct Statute (2009). The two were informed of their sixmonth suspension on April 3, less than 24 hours before the university census date, when student enrolment and HECS-HELP loan information is collected. The suspension period applies from January 1 to June 30. A third student, Llanon Davis, received a warning.

Ms Cheesley said the retrospective suspension means her work from the first half of the semester is “all for nothing”. “I have been attending classes this semester and completing assignments because I had not been notified of the outcome of my hearing,” she said. University spokesman Warrick Glynn said the suspended students would not have to pay tuition fees for classes they attended this semester. He said details of the hearing were confidential. However, Ms Cheesley said in her case, allegations included leading and co-ordinating protests in which staff members were verbally abused, intimidated, assaulted and injured. The verdict states the students were not found guilty of contravening criminal law. She said the students were seeking legal advice on the suspension.

Council rejects rooftop farming plan PLANS to build a $5 million rooftop farm capable of generating enough produce to feed 1000 people a day will be taken to the planning minister after the council deemed it inappropriate. Environmental designer Joost Bakker, the trader behind eco-themed Silo by Joost on Hardware Street, said he was ‘‘shocked’’ his concept to build a sustainable rooftop farm and restaurant at 271 Collins Street was knocked back by all but one councillor. The City of Melbourne rejected the proposal at last week’s Future Melbourne Committee meeting because it exceeded by 4.5 metres the mandatory 40-metre height limit for the area. The plan for the two-storey venue includes a dining hall, stonemill bakery, windmill, composting facility and 1000-square-metre glasshouse. The council said the project was an ‘‘outstanding example of environmental sustainability’’, but turned it down because it was not considered

Joost Bakker is ‘‘shocked’’ Melbourne council refused his application for a rooftop garden significant enough to repeal existing height controls. Cr Ken Ong said the council had to stand firm on the mandatory planing

scheme to prevent the ‘‘floodgates’’ from opening. But Mr Bakker, who has already negotiated a 20-year lease with the property’s owners, said the

building systems were all temporary and that an exception should be made. ‘‘Does the council really want to get serious about greening roofs?’’ he

April 17, 2013

asked councillors last week. ‘‘This is not yuccas and fake turf. This is a real proposal to farm produce.’’ Mr Bakker anticipated the ‘‘wastefree’’ venue could generate up to $2 million a year. He has plans to host 10,000 students a year on excursions and to employ up to three full-time staff. He said he expected support from at least four councillors, including the Greens’ Cathy Oke and Rohan Leppert. Cr Oke said the council had to be consistent. ‘‘I would hate to think that this is actually a question of us going against sustainability,’’ she said. ‘‘If we don’t stick to the rules of the planning scheme ... then how are our residents, our stakeholders, our businesses meant to take us seriously?" Cr Stephen Mayne, the only councillor to support the proposal, said: ‘‘This is not going 288 metres above what we say, like [proposed high-rise] Australia 108, this is a temporary structure going four metres above a long-standing 40m height limit.’’ Mr Bakker is due to meet Planning Minister Matthew Guy this week.

‘No reason’ for internet block BY MICHAEL RYAN mryan@mmpgroup.com.au

MORE than 1200 websites, including one belonging to independent learning organisation Melbourne Free University, may have become an unintended victim of the federal government’s internet filter. MFU was told by internet service provider Exetel that the IP address hosting its site was blocked recently ‘‘by Australian authorities for undisclosed reasons’’. The block began on April 4 and was lifted on April 12. Exetel also told MFU that “our supplier [AAPT] is unable to have this IP unblocked”. MFU was established by a group of La Trobe University staff in 2010 as a free, independent university. Its courses cover politics, philosophy, theology, gender studies and economics. MFU co-founder Jasmine-Kim We-

stendorf said she did not know why the site was blocked and believed the government was most likely targeting another website sharing the same IP address. The IP address that hosts melbournefreeuniversity.org also hosts gambling and pornography websites, which is not uncommon as one IP address can host thousands of sites. More than 1200 other sites hosted at the IP address were also blocked. ‘‘We didn’t know they had that power,’’ Ms Westendorf said, ‘‘It’s an issue for us that the government has these powers and aren’t accountable.’’ The Australian Communications and Media Authority, the body responsible for internet regulation, issued a statement denying it had blocked the site or that it was investigating any prohibited content. It would not elaborate on this statement when contacted by MTW.

Celebration in the air Fitzroy residents are being encouraged to research the history of their house to take part in the suburb’s inaugural Happy Birthday House celebration. In conjunction with the National Trust Heritage Festival, the Fitzroy Residents Association is inviting locals to supply details about their house (or apartment, shop or shed) to celebrate the suburb’s unique character. Residents who send their research to the FRA by April 18 will receive a helium-filled balloon featuring their home’s name, age and history, which they can tie to their letterbox or front fence. The balloons will be available from the steps of the Fitzroy Town Hall on Saturday, April 20, from 12pm and can be displayed all weekend. For more information, visit fitzroyresidents.org.au.

COVERSTORY

Streat

wise

Daniel Paproth spends a day in the kitchen at an extraordinary business giving homeless youth a chance

t is just after the morning rush at the Streat cafe on Racecourse Road in Flemington and I am in the kitchen, preparing food, hopelessly out of my depth. Trainee Pnina, on the other hand, is far more confident. She is in her second month at Streat, a non-profit social enterprise that aims to reduce youth homelessness by providing them with hospitality training. Pnina and I are making chimichurri, a sauce for grilled meats, and we are carefully washing parsley and taste-testing the mixture. Pnina asks if I have had experience in a cafe. I haven’t – it takes me an hour just to make bangers and mash. Streat is the brainchild of youth rights advocate Rebecca Scott, who co-founded the operation with partner Kate Barrelle in 2008. Two years later they rolled their first food cart out to Federation Square and Streat’s business exploded. There are now two cafes, cca afes afe fes in McKillop Street in the CBD and on fe Racecourse Road, as well as a coffee cart at R Ra ace ce Melbourne Central. In 2012 Streat acquired M Me elb l tthe th he SSocial Roasting Company, a coffee roasting business. rro oas SSince 2010, 52 young people aged 16–25 Si have ha h av been involved in the program, and an d more than 50 per cent have graduated with w wi it a certificate. Of those, 17 have gone on to work in the hospitality industry – two on now n no o work as fully qualified chefs – and others have gone on to other work sseveral se e orr further study. o

‘These guys are my heroes. They totally rock. I don’t know if I’d ever have the courage or resilience to do the things that they’ve done

to get here’

Streat co-founders Kate Barrelle and Rebecca Scott

Back to the chimichurri; the parsley and oregano have been prepared and it’s time to blend it with canola oil. I have a taste and it is quite sour. It’s here I learn a vital culinary rule. The key to successful cooking is in the small details – the salt, pepper and oil. Pnina deftly saves the chimichurri with a few pinches of salt and we’re away again. As the clock nears midday the kitchen gets busier. Head chef Rob Auger enlists Pnina to make the multitude of burgers that have just been ordered as the Nepalese chef Hari Dhakal and I get to work making reserves of aioli. Just like the chimichurri, the secret is adding the right amounts of salt – and not overdoing the garlic. The Streat kitchen is about as far as you can get from the likes of Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen. When lunch orders come in there is no barking of commands from Auger, nor does Pnina crack under the stress. The two work together, Auger guiding Pnina on how best to present the burgers. The mutual respect is crucial – Pnina has had negative cafe experiences before Streat. “I was doing my best,” Pnina says. “And the lady called me deaf and stupid the whole time because I wasn’t good with the cash register or with other things. I got a lot of put-downs. ‘‘When I first started at the McKillop Streat cafe, every morning I’d be like ‘I don’t wanna go in’ but when I got there they were always really nice and made me feel really welcome. I’m really confident with the cash register now and I know how to hold a knife properly.’’ Christie agrees. ‘‘It’s important because if you don’t know something you don’t feel afraid to ask because they’re not going to judge you.’’

The night before my shift in the Streat kitchen, the cafe hosted a graduation ceremony for the class of 2012. Scott made a speech toasting the graduates and called each one up to receive their certificates as tears were shed and smiles broke out across the room.

It’s easy to admire Scott’s work, given the way she has made an idea a successful reality, but it’s the trainees she admires most. ‘‘I love it when I know the back story of a young person who might be serving me,’’ she says. ‘‘I know the extraordinary hurdles they have overcome to even be standing in this cafe. As a customer you wouldn’t know that but we did, and it’s an amazing transformation that you see happening before your eyes. ‘‘These guys are my heroes. They totally rock. I don’t know if I’d ever have the courage or resilience to do the things that they’ve done to get here.’’ Take Hannah, for example. Five years ago, when she was 16, Hannah was diagnosed quadriplegic. She couldn’t walk and had to get a year 12 equivalent through VCAL because the many high schools she attended could not provide the disabled access she needed. ‘‘When I was diagnosed as a quadriplegic, the doctors were convinced I was going to die,’’ she says. ‘‘So they sent me home for palliative care and then my father abandoned me in hospital to die.’’ She then spent two-and-a-half years in an aged care facility, which she describes as a ‘‘very nasty place to live’’.

‘‘They were taking in people of a level they couldn’t care for, like drug addicts or people with severe mental issues.’’ Fast-forward to March 2013 and Hannah has successfully completed the Streat course with a Certificate II in Hospitality, is walking again with the aid of a cane, has recently started a Bachelor of Communications (Advertising) at RMIT and is living in one of Lighthouse Foundation’s houses in Richmond. ‘‘It was great to come through the fire,’’ she says. “[Streat] really supported me with my disability and it adds a lot of support to my life and gives me a background. I’ve got a fallback if I struggle to get work.’’ Aaron is another of the graduates who has turned his life around. Two-and-a-half years ago he was diagnosed with drug-induced psychosis, having used marijuana since he was 14. He experienced homelessness from a young age, which contributed to the drug use, and has been in and out of hospital. But he graduated last year, no longer uses drugs, works at the Doutta Galla Hotel in Flemington and is living on his own in Glenroy. His recipe for bread and butter pudding – a meal his nan made him many times – features in the 160-page hardcover Streat recipe book. There is a quote from Aaron in the book – ‘‘Just because you have a hard life doesn’t mean you have no future – the sky is the limit!’’ ‘‘You don’t really look back on your past,’’ he says. ‘‘You don’t dwell on it. The past is the past, it just made me a stronger and better person. I’ve come a long way.’’ I Visit a Streat cafe at 307 Racecourse Road, Flemington, 5 McKillop Street, city, or at Melbourne Central.

It all started when Scott discovered KOTO, a street youth cafe in Hanoi, Vietnam, staffed mostly by former homeless youth who received training through the program. ‘‘It sounds daggy but I had my little epiphany,’’ Scott says. ‘‘That lightbulb moment was about realising that you can solve social issues like homelessness through business. Social change is actually happening within the business itself.’’ The reason for the expansion is simple. ‘‘The bigger we get the more young people we can put through,’’ Scott says. ‘‘There are so many skills and competencies that a young person can get in a cafe like this, from front of house to barista to a chef out back.’’ Hard at work in the kitchen, Pnina tells me about a very brave decision she made at the age of 18. Estranged from her family, she left home in Sydney and came to Melbourne by herself. ‘‘I threw up at the airport,’’ the 21-year-old recalls. ‘‘I knew no one but I wanted my independence so I just did it and never looked back.’’ It was Pnina’s Jewish faith that helped her adjust to the change as she made connections through Merkos Women, a Jewish learning centre for women. In the kitchen, we continue to wash the herbs, cut the parsley and strip tiny oregano leaves from their stems for the chimichurri. There is something very calming about it despite the fast pace of the kitchen. ‘‘I find cooking relaxing,’’ Pnina says. ‘‘The whole process. It’s what I like to do when I get upset.’’ Pnina and the other trainees spend an average of three days a week involved with Streat. One day is spent on site at the cafe, another at William Angliss TAFE and a third at the Streat office in Bourke Street completing a life skills component. Christie is another trainee at Streat this morning. A mother of two, she is quietly spoken but reveals a story of incredible determination. The 21-year-old left home when she was 16 and spent the next two years in refuge homes while balancing the latter years of high school. In year 12, at 18, she found out she was pregnant with her first child, daughter Melody. ‘‘I left school and I left the refuge because they weren’t able to support me any more,’’ she says. ‘‘I went to stay with mum but she said I couldn’t stay there with the baby.’’ Christie was eight months pregnant at the time. She spent a little over a week in another refuge before finding transitional and then long-term accommodation. It was traumatic, she says, but has helped put life into perspective. ‘‘At the time I was all over the place. Now I look back and it’s hard to explain ... you don’t realise how much you went through. You see life differently when you go through something like that.’’ Christie arrived at Streat on the advice of her social worker, and though she previously had no interest in hospitality she has grown to love it. ‘‘I’m finding it fun and I do want to get a job in it,’’ she says. ‘‘I feel way more confident now than I was when I started the program. I feel like I can actually do something with myself.’’

PROFILE SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

Web of support There’s help for people whose loved ones are linked to child pornography. By Bridget Fitzgerald

T

en years ago Natalie Walker experienced the horror of finding child pornography on the computer of someone close to her. At first she did not know how to react and she felt isolated. She felt she could not discuss it with anyone. “I didn’t report it [to the police] immediately – I didn’t think of it, which is crazy retrospectively,” she says. It was this personal experience that prompted Walker to start an online support forum for the partners and family members of people linked to child pornography. The group, PartnerSPEAK, will be officially launched at Edinburgh Gardens Community Room in North Fitzroy on Thursday, April 18. PartnerSPEAK exists mainly as a forum offering peer support, information and advice. Walker says the anonymity of the web is a key factor for people joining.

“Often there’s not a single person you could tell,” she says. “People have had this experience and have never met anyone else who has been through it.” Walker says the police and her friends and family seemed sceptical when she approached them. She says there is growing acknowledgement that possessing child pornography is a serious crime but there is little attention paid to people who are close to the offenders. Walker says she felt ostracised – as if she had done something wrong. The group was integrated in October last year and the website was launched a year ago. The first post on the site, from March 28, outlined that the site is primarily for people affected by a loved one’s connection to child pornography, but it is suitable for “anyone affected by the impact of any pornography in their relationship”. Walker says there is an important

distinction between PartnerSPEAK and support groups for people connected to those accused of sex crimes or paedophilia. She says the stigma and experiences of these groups are similar, but the partners of those accused make a distinction. “How they treat each other is interesting,” she says. “If someone has abused a child, they will often minimise the experience of someone who just looks at pornography. In that way, it can be very unsupportive.” No formal counselling is offered via the forum, but PartnerSPEAK members can refer people to counsellors. “We’ve had people try and go to generic counselling but they were intimidated the whole time,” she says. Walker is also prepared to help partners approach the police. “I hope people know they are not isolated,” she says. I Details: visit partnerspeak.org.

I

t’s fair to say the world wasn’t really crying out for another Suede album. After kickstarting the 1990s Britpop movement, the London group drifted into self-parody until a reunion three years ago gave the band a surprise second wind. Still, nostalgia only takes you so far. What’s most remarkable about Bloodsports is its furious attempt to rewrite history. Album opener Barriers sets the tone, part glam and part grit, armed with a chorus that sounds bigger – and more aggressive – than ever. Tracks such as the sublime and sinister Sabotage and It Starts And Ends With You make a play for the mainstream, but Bloodsports belongs in the shadows. It’s an astonishing return to form, but it’s not a record that really belongs in 2013. That’s OK. Suede never really sounded like they belonged to the 1990s either.

T

his hipster-baiting (or, possibly, hipstertickling) sketch comedy proves that old paradox about the most specific art having the widest appeal. Really, it’s a series with one joke – that Portland in Oregon is an odd place where arty types can take refuge from our cynical, commercial modern hell. It’s a good joke and, without too much effort, can be applied to, say, Northcote or Castlemaine. In the first episode, writers and stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein chase a hunky mixologist to the wilds of California. Armisen wonders why the sun isn’t covered by clouds, while Brownstein panics about her lovely pale skin. Ridiculous, yes, but there’s some potent notes of truth here. What the show does best is identify the petty ways we all attempt to mark our patch. Whether it’s pickling vegetables, digging a backyard “fire pit” or arranging a “cool” wedding, these characters are trying that little bit too hard to stand out from the crowd. Portlandia encourages us to point and laugh, even as we recognise the lurking shadow of our own hobbies and affectations.

t’s a good week for live, energetic pop, with two offbeat acts bouncing onto Melbourne stages. At the Northcote Social Club, Brisbane quintet The Trouble With Templeton will be launching their new single Like A Kid – a surprisingly muscular chunk of power pop. On the face of it, they’re working a similar seam of indie rock to Sydneysiders Boy & Bear, but there’s something a little wilder and more interesting going on here. Even more exciting is the long-awaited return of American twee popsters They Might Be Giants. Into their fourth decade, the group’s live shows are still a dizzying sugar rush of punky arrangements and irresistible melodies.

hen housewife Sharon Solarz (Susan Sarandon) stares mournfully out the kitchen window one morning, we can assume drama is imminent. But, instead of facing down the usual mid-life trials and tribulations, Solarz

is arrested at gunpoint by the FBI and exposed as a fugitive terrorist. Soon, small town attorney Jim Grant (Robert Redford) is on the run, wanted by the feds for a three-decades-old crime. What unfolds is an enjoyable, if never particularly gripping, political thriller involving the 1960s radical group the Weather Underground. Undoubtedly, the cast is its best asset.

Redford is always watchable and even Shia LaBeouf, as pushy journo Ben Shepard, is more engaging than he’s been in a long while. Cameos from well-known (and well-worn) faces help lift a pedestrian plot, but ultimately the film gets bogged in muddy ground between fact and fiction. In striving to feel like a memoir, it prunes back the action elements, but then ties up its tale in some all-too-neat knots.

MOTORING Subaru Liberty X What is it? One for the farmers, I reckon. What’s in it? A 127-kilowatt 2.5-litre fourcylinder with a continuously variable gearbox. Is it thirsty? I used 12 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, 7.8 in the country. The official combined figure is 8. Drive away $48,854. Thumbs up Its ability on rough roads and its build quality. Thumbs down It sure looks funny.

Looks ain’t everything Top performance makes up for less-than-lovely appearance. By Rod Easdown

T

here may be logic behind Subaru’s Liberty X. Even so, it may just go down as one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time. The X is a premium Liberty with the suspension jacked up 50 millimetres. That may not sound like much but it is very noticeable, and it’s the car’s only problem; it looks weird. There’s a generous gap between the top of the tyre and the bottom of the wheel arch. Car designers call this the dead cat space – truly – and they go out of their way to minimise it. The X maximises it and now we can see the car designers’ point. No one at my gym liked it. A woman who has been into Subarus since they launched in Australia in 1971 (she just traded her Liberty on an XV) said it looked so funny she wouldn’t even consider it. Even some friends who saw it in the dark said it was odd. Subaru has jacked it up for two reasons. First it makes entry and egress for older people easier, a big reason why they choose SUVs,

and secondly because with 200 millimetres off ground clearance the Liberty becomes a natural ural for people who regularly face challenging topography; farmers, country drivers and even en city folk with very steep drives. So I broke off my regular road test route to take the X along a very rough, potholed, downright nasty forestry track and it acquitted itself faultlessly. With all-wheeldrive it’s as competent as many SUVs and a long way better than some when the going gets rough. The suspension is tight; tight enough to make the ride quite firm, but out in the potholed wilderness this makes the car mostt reassuring. It feels unbreakable and throughout hout it remains comfortable and reasonably quiet. However, with a higher centre of gravity the handling is down a bit on regular Liberty models and the rear end especially can get a bit vague when the car is pressed through twisty bits. Navigation and Subaru’s impressive EyeSight

technology, to warn about objects ahead, lane drift and errant pedestrians (it errs on the safe side and is a bit like having your mum in the back seat) is included, along with adaptive cruise and good audio. And, hey, it’s easy to get into and out of. But it’s only a proposition if you need occasional ground clearance and you can come to terms with owning a funny-looking car. 

Things you didn’t know about motoring Fifty-three per cent of owners wash their car less than once a month. 16 per cent never do.

NORTH MELBOURNE \ 86 ERSKINE STREET

I

t was the rambling nature of this Edwardian house, built in 1922, that first attracted the vendors: a block-sized backyard combining with a flexible floor plan was the ideal solution for a family of five looking for somewhere to grow. And grow they did. Just as Clifton Hill has experienced its own state of flux – once a bohemian enclave and now a pleasantly gentrified suburb – so too has this house moved from Edwardian beauty to ramshackle abode and back. The current vendors are responsible for the house’s latest incarnation. Following subdivision of the original block, a 2007 renovation at the hands of a local architect has resulted in a property compact enough to be low maintenance while still maintaining the space a family requires. It is there in the clever instigation of two brick-paved outdoor areas separated by a verandah that hugs the rear corner of the house. It’s easy to imagine the interior courtyard as the preserve of the grown-ups, while the rear space is left to children’s toys or space for pets. The free-form planting of the front yard is where the story begins, the casual entry a low-key frame for the practical beauty of solid brick framed by a bullnose verandah set to the side of an eye-catching bay window projecting in to space. Behind that bay window is the formal dining room. It’s a stunner – from the pressed-metal ceiling and decorative fireplace to the built-in bookshelves. Across the corridor is the main bedroom. Here there is a decorative ceiling rose to hint at the past, with built-in wardrobes and shelves maintaining a link to the practical family needs of the present. Polished floorboards run through the house, creating a visual connection as one moves through the space. Move past the spiral staircase (a surprise for later) to a second bedroom with built-in wardrobes adjacent to a home office that enjoys a view over the interior courtyard. It’s a nice element of connection to the outdoors that breaks that boxed-in feel that can be a hallmark of houses built during an era when the notion of open-plan living was unheard of. The rear of the house is where the action happens. A joint family, dining and kitchen space is given a makeover courtesy of a cathedral ceiling, glass sliding doors that lead to the verandah and backyard, and high windows that capture snapshots of green from the overarching gums. The kitchen, too, has a kind of party vibe courtesy of a colourful tiled splashback that lends the whole picture a bit of humour. It is, if you like, a running joke: those same tiles in cooler shades repeat in the neighbouring bathroom, with its pebble-floor shower overlooking a brick-framed light well that’s similarly viewed from one of the downstairs bedrooms. But back to that staircase. Up here is a third bedroom in the form of an attic retreat. One for the kids to fight over. In the end, this is a house with connections to all those past Clifton Hill incarnations. This is modernity matched to its current gentrification in the light and bright spaces and a water tank inclusion; a bohemian feel in decorative tiles to echo the suburb’s bohemian past. And it’s origins? The touchstones are there in a wagon wheel that rests in the garden, presumed to exist from the time of the house’s construction. Not to mention an oil-painting portrait the vendor believes to be of the original owner. Both will rest with the house. For the vendor, leaving those traces of the past seems “the right thing to do”. \ SARINA LEWIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

An efficient floor plan finds two bedrooms on entry downstairs and a third bedroom and second bathroom upstairs. The front main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a built-in desk. A huge main bathroom is instantly impressive, with a bath at one end, a shower with stainless-steel base and a black-tiled feature wall at the other, and a large mirror in between. A galley laundry with plenty of storage cupboards and wide benches provides access to the remote-controlled double garage that offers further storage. An open-tread floating timber staircase reveals a second storey dominated by an open-plan kitchen, meals and living room. A high, sloping vaulted ceiling, white interiors and timber floors transform this contemporary space. The rear north-facing wall is all glass, and oversized sliding doors lead to a rooftop terrace. The kitchen has Smeg appliances, a glass-tiled splashback and plenty of cabinets. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Price \ $670,000 – $720,000

Auction \ April 20 at 1.30pm

Northcote is nifty for many reasons. Tucked away near the end of a no-through street, this double-fronted Victorian is positioned to make the most of all of them. The tuck-pointed red-brick façade has a timber verandah with wooden fretwork. Thoroughly inhabitable, the residence also offers scope for renovation and extension (STCA). The entrance foyer is carpeted and has a Wunderlich ceiling. Either side of the foyer, twin bedrooms have open fireplaces and verandah aspects. The central lounge room has a gas heater in a brick hearth and glass double doors to the dining room or third bedroom. Modernised with flair, the eat-in kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, stone-look Formica benchtops and lots of high-gloss cabinetry. The bathroom has a bath and a shower. A sunroom/laundry concludes the floor plan. The big backyard has olive trees and vegetable patches. The left boundary of the property abuts a lane and there’s a right-of-way. A shed and outhouse toilet bring up the rear. Trams, shops and All Nations Park are close by. \ KAY KEIGHERY

PARKVILLE \ 205 PARK DRIVE

This triple-fronted double-storey Victorian with an impressive polychromatic brick façade dominates the corner of Park Drive and Gatehouse Street and is emblematic of this unique residential enclave. This leafy suburb that is more park than ville has the rarefied air of a place where historic

heritage houses tell a story. One can only guess the history of this one, built c1890s. Updates over the decades are reasonably unobtrusive; a recent white paint job of the interior and the sanding of the Baltic pine floors highlight the pared-back period beauty found in the airiness of the lofty ceilings and the exquisite details of the tiled fireplaces.

There is one bedroom on the ground floor, joined by a dining room, a basic kitchen/ meals room and a huge living room that draws northerly sun through its bay window. Upstairs, two of the three bedrooms have small built-in wardrobes and balconies that are more recent additions to the façade. A sitting room mirrors the downstairs living room with

the benefit of superior elevated park views. Potentially hundreds of uni students have been housed here, pondering the park view while eating their baked beans. Guaranteed occupancy rates make this an investment prospect, but a complete refurbishment, including reinstating the lost verandah, could be a satisfying project, too. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

If you’ve been looking for a project to renovate but don’t want to start from scratch, this elevated property could be perfect. The current owners have done all the big jobs, including excavating under the house to make way for a rumpus area. There’s also two bedrooms downstairs and a bathroom; it has been plumbed but needs to be completed. The main living area and new kitchen have timber floors that are still unpolished. The kitchen also has stone benchtops, an Ilve stove and treetop views of Eltham – a common outlook from the Eltham Woods Estate. The dining and lounge areas have bifold doors that open to an outdoor entertainment zone; it’s covered and overlooks the backyard. Three more bedrooms, with coloured feature walls, are in good shape without renovation. The main has a walk-through wardrobe to an en suite while the two others share a bathroom. Other benefits include ducted heating and cooling and under-house storage. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA

There is nothing predictable about a house that has endured almost as many incarnations as a Hindu priest: the Salvation Army church built in 1891 once passed through life as a Palais de Dance and gospel hall. All the evidence of its original purpose is

there in the brick construction and timber cathedral ceiling that makes for an eye-popping entrance to the spectacular front living space. The vendors call it their “party room”, large enough to house a bar, billiards table and lounge area with room left to move.

Auction \ April 27 at 2pm

The rich period ambience of this two-storey Victorian has gained it more than 15 minutes of fame as a set for television productions. Originally the local grocery shop, it’s a reminder of days when combined commercial and residential quarters were not uncommon. Ground level is made up of a living and dining area in the shop space, with a European laundry, bathroom and kitchen opening to the rear courtyard. The dining area is one step above the living and both have Baltic pine floors with stencilled border friezes. A fireplace and big banks of windows with timber shutters enhance the living area. The kitchen has slate floor tiles, a dishwasher, oven and white cabinetry. Though not spoilt for space, the bathroom manages a separate toilet. Upstairs are two huge bedrooms and a loft study reached by a ladder. The courtyard has terracotta pavers, potted gardens and space for entertaining. Restored to legibility but true to times when advertising favoured an artistic hand, signwriting on the upper rear of the edifice still endorses Pure Velvet. \ KAY KEIGHERY

Flagging their intentions

Blues take the shine off Gold

Northcote Park has grand plans for the 2013 season, writes Daniel Paproth

Northern Blues picked up a handy percentage boost with a 164-point annihilation of Bendigo Gold in the Victorian Football League at Visy Park on Saturday. The Blues now have by far the best percentage after two rounds after destroying the hapless Bendigo, a stand-alone club this season after Essendon elected to field its own VFL team. The Blues looked good in beating Werribee Tigers a week earlier and at half-time led by 90 points – the Gold had managed just a goal and a behind in an hour of football. Tyson Thomas backed up his bag of five goals against the Tigers with six more , and Troy Menzel booted four. The Blues had 13 goalkickers in the 30.16 (196) to 4.8 (32) victory. But the Northern Blues’ Reserves did not fare as well, going down 11.15 (81) to 9.12 (66) against Box Hill.In the Northern Football League, reigning premiers Northcote Park went down by 37 points in a grand final rematch against Heidelberg. The Tigers led all day and kicked six to three in the last to put the result beyond doubt. West Preston Lakeside also suffered at the hands of Montmorency, losing by 57 points. The Roosters were wildly inaccurate, kicking 18 behinds and just five goals as the Magpies took the advantage and got the four points. Fitzroy Stars lost by seven points to the resurgent Hurstbridge in Division 2, while Reservoir started its season with a 26-point win over St Mary’s in Division 3.

orthcote Park’s giant-killing run in the second half of the Northern Football League season last year, which culminated in a premiership, was all the more impressive given the opposition. The Cougars took on Heidelberg in the grand final, a powerhouse of the NFL. The Tigers have won more senior flags than any team in the competition and won five between 2000-2010 alone. So when the two teams met on under lights on Friday night for a grand final rematch it was sure to be a sensational contest and it was Heidelberg that came away with the points to get its season off to the best possible start. However Northcote Park coach Jason Heatley said his team would not be deterred and was determined to deliver back-to-back premierships to the club, which has not won a senior flag since its four-peat ended in 2002. And while the focus was on the 2013 season, there was still a strong sense of pride at the club for its achievements the previous year. After 10 rounds the Cougars had won just two games. They won 11 of their next 12 to cap off the season. ‘‘Our numbers in the second half of the year showed that we stood up to the rest of the competition and that was really pleasing,’’ he said. The under-19 team also won the flag, after a
