MURPHY’s LORE

contents

ALAN Murphy \ spelling out a new vision

M

oonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe says her council, elected last November, is passionate about making our city the best place in which to live, work and play. Last month the council adopted the major strategies on which it will focus in the next four years. If it only succeeds in implementing half of what it plans, we will be the envy of neighbouring municipalities. The 37-page document, much of it adopted from the longer-term MV2035, is among the council’s best reports of recent years. It details strategic objectives during this council’s term within five themes: friendly and safe; green, clean and beautiful; sustainable living; vibrant and diverse; and excellence in governance. The council will be encouraging us to be healthier and more physically active; there will be programs on obesity, mental health and problem gambling. Domestic violence will be a key focus. Our streets will be safer, parks greener and there will be more campaigns to build higher levels of re-use and recycling and best-practice storm

management to improve the health and ecology of our waterways. There will also be education programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, waste and water usage, as the council works towards its own zero emissions target by 2020. After relative stability for two decades, our population of 116,000 is on the march. More importantly, we are not so much about families with children any more, since 25 per cent of households are people living alone and 20 per cent of our population has moved here in the past five years. The projections are for a significant increase in the very old. We are now seen as an inner suburb. Our housing was developed for families with children, but now the demand is for smaller homes for single persons, downsizing senior couples and smaller families. Much of the council’s planning reflects these major trends. We need to attract more big business to Moonee Valley. Not many large companies have relocated here in recent years. The biggest in the past two decades have been

the Australian Tax Office and Foxtel. Like death and taxes, rates increases are also inevitable and the council’s assumptions, not commitments, are based on 5 per cent annual increases. Rates remain the major source of income. Over the four years, rate revenue as a proportion of total income will increase from 70 per cent to 72 per cent. Cost shifting by federal and state governments and increased community demand have a heavy impact. Government funding has declined in real terms yet the local government is expected to increase services. Cr Nicole Marshall’s election platform spoke of the need for developers to help pay for infrastructure costs and reduce the pressure on rates. Now is a good time to begin to push that barrow.

Que sera \ Sarah Harris lifts the lid on the loo-vre of sanitation

W

hile I don’t want to be a potty mouth, the United Nations’ official proclamation of World Toilet Day seems like the perfect opportunity to spruik my favourite loo. Admittedly, it’s a tad out of town, but truly this is no ordinary convenience. The Warracknabeal and District Ladies Restroom Committee may sound like a title borrowed from an Alexander McCall Smith novel, yet this is a real institution of the Australian outback variety. Time was when many country towns had similar restrooms – most under the auspices of the Country Women’s Association or other voluntary organisations. The Warracknabeal restrooms, opened in 1928 in the heart of the town, are perhaps the last stand-alone private toilet with its own dedicated committee and membership – founded as a matter of convenience by women of the Wimmera. “Before the restrooms were built, the women used to come in from the farms with their husbands, travelling miles in horse and buggies,” committee treasurer Laurel Schulz explains. “The men had the Coffee Palace, but the women were not welcome there. They didn’t have anywhere to go to feed their babies, change them or freshen up. “So some of the farmers’ wives got together and decided they would form a committee to raise funds for their own place.” Since then the restrooms have served as an oasis for generations of women, having their doors closed only

for a brief spell in 2005 when the floorboards were replaced. Flicking through the visitors’ book, it is clear how much this quaint amenity is valued by travellers. A troupe of passing belly dancers were so impressed they left a $100 donation. Another visitor, Val, wrote: “So charming. I love to come in here so we always make Warrack a stop on the way through to Adelaide – even when I don’t really need to use the restroom.” People do tend to laugh and snicker about toilets and the business thereof, as anticipated by Singapore charge d’affaires Mark Neo before the UN last week voted unanimously in favour of his country’s proposal to make November 19 World Toilet Day. But contrast the genteel Warracknabeal institution – or indeed the throne in your own bathroom – with the grim reality of the Third World in which more than 2.5 billion people don’t have decent sanitation. According to the UN, six billion of the world’s seven billion people have mobile phones – but only 4.5 billion have access to toilets or latrines. And almost 2000 children die every day from preventable diarrhoeal diseases which flourish in unsanitary conditions. Whether the man of the well-appointed Western house leaves the seat up is really a very First World problem. Let’s lift the lid on the real issue. \ sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

streets. The smooth brick façade and simple sign on the exterior wall, just across from the town hall, is a reassuring sight and heralds a very comfortable place to eat and drink. The front bar has hosted many long nights with customers choosing from the interesting wines-by-the-glass list, and the restaurant, in the back dining room, has been ticking along in rhythm with the inner-city neighbourhood. Scott Thomas has owned the business in the old pub for the past 12 years. The restaurant was recognised in the years it first opened for serving great food and upping the ante on pub food generally in Melbourne. While these accolades have quietened down in recent years, it still has an urban, old-school charm that conjures thoughts of fireplaces and cold nights sipping on good red wines. There is an edge of formality in its tablecloths, full table settings and hushed tones, but the service is immediately friendly, relaxed and welcoming. The menu reads well, described by Thomas as “contemporary European”, and dishes such as “steak tartare, anchovy tart, truffled pecorino” and “crisp pork belly, black pudding, rhubarb and fennel pollen” back this up. Freshly shucked oysters – Pacifics from Coffin Bay in South Australia and Rocks from

south-east Queensland – are offered with cucumber and vodka. An entrée of calamari stuffed with quinoa served with orange segments, radish and squid ink is texturally appealing, although the stuffing could use more seasoning. An egg-yolk raviolo – one large pillow of pasta – is an earthy dish, the yolk oozing out of the pasta with Jerusalem artichoke and Western Australian truffles in support. Mains are generous in size – the Flinders Island salt-grass lamb is cooked pink and tender with artichoke, date and mint jelly. Sadly, the presentation is lacking, with each element placed almost on top of each other. A dish of wild barramundi also mixes many flavours on the plate, something a fish as distinctive as barra doesn’t always need. The fish fillet is succulent and crisp-skinned, although the addition of spiced carrot, beetroot, yoghurt and clams tends to overpower it. However, the technique and skill of chef Zoe Birch shine. Desserts may include a trifle of the day or an overly sweet banana, stout and orange ice-cream sandwich, and the wine list in the dining room is full of gems from throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. It’s well-priced and the knowledge of the staff is there to back up the selection. The dishes and service make this familiar landmark worth revisiting. After 12 years, it would just about be a crime not to get back to The Courthouse. \

effie She was the big-haired “wog chick” who made us laugh, then Mary Coustas suffered terrible loss. She tells PETER WILMOTH how she endured

I

am walking along George Street, Sydney, looking for Effie. Well, actually, I’m looking for the actor Mary Coustas, so without the big hair it’s going to be harder to find her in the crowd. There’s been a venue mix-up, which is why we’re tracking each other on our mobiles. At an intersection I see a woman who just might be Coustas. It’s been about 15 years since I last interviewed her – at inner-city actor heartland Marios café in Fitzroy – so the recognition factor is down. Also, she’s been living in Sydney so she hasn’t been as big a presence in Melbourne as she was when she was stalking our stages with that massive ’do – often graced with various flowers – saying, “How embarrassment” and living the second-generation Greek-Australian dream. It’s Coustas all right, and we make our way to a café to talk about her new autobiography, which is quite a dark and deeply moving work – a lot of pain has been spilled onto the page. Her most famous character, Effie, first appeared on the television show Acropolis Now, which ran from 1989-1992, and she became a cult figure, even publishing a book, Effie’s Guide to Being Up Yourself. She was the most-loved character in the long-running Wogs Out Of Work franchise. But we don’t talk much about comedy today, because her book is mostly about dealing with death. It’s heartfelt, searingly candid and revealing and, it has to be said, quite a way from your traditional actor’s memoir. “This is a story about life and death,” Coustas writes, “a memoir based on a part of my history about which I never imagined writing. But loss has driven me to find answers in what remains, to airlift myself to a place that serves me better than helplessness and misery. To reach out. This is my love letter to what lives on beyond the devastation.” The book deals with Coustas’ father’s ill health (he had his first heart attack at 33 and died at 59 when she was 23), and her experience with miscarriage and the stillbirth of a daughter. “It’s about life through the prism of death,” Coustas explains. “How do you manage to still have a life and how do you manage to protect your sanity and spirit when you’re living with the possibility of your worst nightmare, which is the death of somebody you’ve already loved, my dad? Then there was my

Picture \ Louise M. cooPer 18 The weekly review \ AUGUST 7, 2013


grandmother’s death in the middle, which was a perfect death, and then there was my daughter’s death. “So essentially it’s about those three deaths. But bigger than that it’s about how do I still have a great life, how do I not burden those souls with ruining my life and not bringing me down?” Coustas writes movingly about her father. “The year before I was born my father, at the age of 33, suffered a major heart attack,” she writes. “It was the first of many. I never knew a time when I wasn’t conscious of the fact that he could die at any moment. No one mattered to me more than my dad. And no one liberated me more. “Maybe that’s where the addiction to him and his way of looking at the world began: when you are born into a family where a parent is dying, you record as much as you can. You chronicle memories so that they can comfort you when that great loss finally occurs.” Now 48, Coustas spent her first 10 years in Collingwood. Her family’s semi-detached house was on a main road and there was a tiny patch of concrete for a backyard. She and her brother, Con, played the games they could – one was counting cars, with points scored according to whether it was a car, a motorbike or a truck.

“i know that at any point everything can change, in one moment. i don’t need to be told that; i’ve witnessed it”

S

he remembers it as a happy time. “I felt very stimulated in that environment. There were always people around, there was a village-like feel, which I still crave. It could be the Greek thing, it could be the Collingwood thing, it could be the urban thing. One of the reasons I became an actress was because I love reflecting what I see and what matters to me. “It was only a positive experience. In fact, when I moved to the middle class it was a huge insult to me. It seemed very vanilla, it seemed very closed. Everyone just went into their houses and drove their cars into their driveway and closed off from everything.” In the late 1980s she invented Effie, a character she still performs. The character changed her life. “Oh enormously,” she says. “Effie’s the little affair that I’m always having on the side. Even if I do what is called legitimate stuff like the STC [Sydney Theatre Company] or if I do a drama on the ABC, Effie’s always my little side affair. I’m very grateful to her because she has allowed me to go back to a headspace and a world that was very much a love letter to my childhood.” She met her partner, George, an advertising executive, in 2000 in Los Angeles. “He came with a friend to something all us Aussies were at, film-y, actor-y, director-y people,” she says. “He’s friends with Jon Polson, who was having a drinks thing. He was in LA for a night. We were both with other people, no biggie. Just chatted all night. Interesting, great, you know, Greek advertising superstar. That was good. I thought, ‘What a great guy’, and that was it. Three years later he came and found me.” In 2003 she went to live in Sydney with George and began IVF treatment. When she fell pregnant she was told she was having twins, then triplets. “Due to nature, or God, one of the eggs split into two,” she says. “I was sort of hoping for twins ... After years and years of trying, and a miscarriage before then, by that point I was thrilled with the idea of twins.” But it was a complicated pregnancy. Ultrasounds revealed identical twins and another foetus on its own. “Seven-week scan: twins. Nine-week scan: doctor has a look on his face which alerts me to, ‘We have a problem on our hands’. “One of the eggs had split into two, so they were sharing the same utilities, as they would say, which was problematic because one would take from the other and the other would not grow properly. I was advised by five separate doctors to ‘reduce’ the twins. It was a very difficult position to be put in after trying for so many years. That was pretty harrowing.” Rather than take the risk of a triple pregnancy, fraught with the chance of physical repercussions for her babies and her, Coustas accepted the doctor’s advice to “reduce” the twins and go ahead with the singleton pregnancy. But that baby, a girl she and George named Stevie, was stillborn.

“If it was just another IVF story I doubt whether I would have written this book,” she says. “But the idea of going from none to two to three to one to none was a story that was bigger than any story I’ve heard. It’s a big part of the book, but it’s bigger than one story.” Coustas’ intimate experience – and the skill with which she tells her story – makes for harrowing reading. This deep sadness caused her to reflect on how people handle immense pain. “How do you (experience) living and not just existing when you’ve experienced those things?” she says. “[The book] is about what I believe to be the biggest taboo, which is death. “It’s something we will all encounter with people we love, and we all avoid it. We don’t like to talk about it and we don’t like to show our pain in regards to it. It’s something that we don’t address very successfully.” She says her loss meant she became “very good at being present”. “You become very good at taking every moment you can from what’s right in front of you without loading it with any expectation of what you want from it. “I’ve been born into that way of thinking, archiving, maximising, making the most of all the smallest things, remembering, keeping it alive through storytelling. “It is very in balance with how I live. That’s how I’ve learnt to live, from the beginning. So it’s not a new concept for me. For me it’s only enhanced every other thing in my life, more so because I know that at any point everything can change, in one moment. I don’t need to be told that; I’ve witnessed it.” There have been other battles. George has for years been enmeshed in a bitter custody battle with his former partner. Coustas says he hasn’t seen his son Tom, now 14 and living in the US with his mother, for four years. “She refused to follow the court orders, which gave us lots of access,” says Coustas. “Tom was going to come back every school holidays. It happened only once.”

S

he says the way George has handled this sadness is just one of the reasons she admires him. “George has been honourable in how he deals with it. He doesn’t impose his circumstances or pain on anyone else. He’s a grown-up. I married the first man I ever went out with. I went out with a lot of boys, I’ve never gone out with someone who takes responsibility, who steps up, who will do whatever had to be done in order to pursue what’s important. “I chased a lot of gorgeous, young, spunky, narcissistic boys. They were perfect for the time, but they were never going to be marriage material.” Who was she looking for? “I didn’t want a punisher, someone that was going to be problematic, someone that was going to be monopolising the airspace, someone who was going to be self-indulgent. It’s not my other half, I was pretty whole anyway. I certainly wanted a grown-up who I could learn from and love without fear and trust. And a hope that they would adore me enough to not ever do anything that would jeopardise me.” Coustas is in touch with her Greek heritage. She owns a place in Greece and goes there frequently to see family. And she’s still touring Effie. “Effie has a new show. Probably the funniest thing I’ve done. Effie is very revealing of issues: why she’s still alone, all that stuff. It’s very personal, like a confessional. I’m loving doing that.” Coustas says she will try again for a baby with IVF. “It wasn’t part of my plan,” she says. “It’s not ideal, but it’s something that I want.” The pain she has endured has informed her work as a comic actor. “Any performance, any artistry, requires a wide reference point in order for it to be relevant to others. Everyone’s got something sad in their lives.” It’s been an intense interview about intense subjects. Coustas is a passionate and articulate storyteller. She’s written a brave book with a strong voice. As the crowds push past us no one would realise this is the woman who became famous saying: “Hair is everything. The higher the hair, the closer to God.” \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au We WelCome your feedbaCk @

audi s6 What is it? One of the world’s great touring cars What’s in it? A turbocharged 309-kilowatt four-litre V8 with a seven-speed dsG gearbox. is it thirsty? i used 13 litres per 100kms in the city, nine in the country. The official combined figure is 9.6. drive away (supplied)

lectronic manual gearboxes are becoming common, and with emission laws tightening they’ll get more so. Volkswagen’s DSG, which is also used in Audis and Skodas, is one of the best, but that’s not saying a lot. These things can be frustrating to drive and they’re expensive to service. I’ll take a conventional auto any day. They have flat spots, especially on take-off and most notably in reverse, that can be anything from annoying to enraging. I’m sure the only reason people buy them is because it’s the only way to get a lot of cars without a clutch pedal. Volkswagens for example. The other frustrating fuel-saver lately is auto stop/start, where the engine stops when the car does, restarting when the brake is released. Some are fast enough to be almost (but not quite) seamless. Some aren’t. Now combine auto stop/start with an electronic manual. The delay on take-off is even longer. But this is not the worst bit. By the time the engine fires and the clutch engages, your foot has been on the accelerator long enough to build up a few revs, so there’s a sharp thump of acceleration that jolts through the whole car. It’s worse if you’re hurrying, but even when you’re not it’s always there, noticeable enough for passengers to comment. So you either amble off at the lights or jump. I can’t say how maddening this is in a performance car such as Audi’s S6. If you want to get off the line smoothly you can’t tap

GetaWay \ GeorGe IerodIaconou makes the most of Broome

B

roome is the smell of frangipanis mixed with teak and sipping beer at sunset on Cable Beach with camels bobbing along the foreshore. If you take to the skies, Broome becomes dramatic, isolated and a beacon in a landscape scorched by the sun with beaches scarred by the tides. The town is also a barramundi wing, the chicken wing of the top end, and a bowl of chilli mud crab with more beer. Most importantly, it is the characters of the Kimberley, the cameleers, friendly townspeople and the adventurers of the skies and waters. Broome is an experience, so while there you need to enjoy its many dimensions and faces. Head there in the dry May to September for moderate heat. If you like it hot and steamy, get there for the wet from September to April.

Local kitesurfers have a habit of looking over their shoulders when they kite in Broome. This is especially true during the wet, when tiger sharks move in to feast on rays and turtles. But after having kited in the wet season and the dry in Broome, I can highly recommend packing your kites on your next visit here. As for the shark and crocodile stories, you will hear plenty of them if you hook up with the locals. The good thing is the tales help you stay on the board longer. Broome is one of the best places I have ever kited. You’ve got milky, warm waters, no crowds and warm winds at your back. The beaches will most likely be deserted and the backdrop is sun-scorched, dry and dramatic. The prevailing wind is west-north-west in the wet season and east-south-east in the dry. You can kite all the way from Cable Beach to Gantheaume Point. There are small waves along the way and butter-flat lagoons. For a full guide to kitesurfing in Broome see Kite Mag, www.kitemag.com.au \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

If you are going to indulge in Broome, then you need to stay at this resort. The gardens are magnificent, rooms are exquisite and the scent of teak and frangipani provides a calm atmosphere. While here, go all out and get a private butler. Cost for accommodation ranges from $380 a night to $1400. This is the only resort on Cable Beach. \

Overlooking the turquoise waters of Roebuck Bay, Reflections B&B offers a relaxing base to explore Broome. Hosts Doug and Margaret Fong have family roots in Broome’s early pearling industry. The rooms are inspired by Chinese and Japanese designs. The breakfast each morning is abundant, fresh and tasty. \

The Wharf Restaurant is right on the Port of Broome. Owner and chef Craig Douglas has served his Asian-influenced seafood since 2000. I had the chilli crab, which was spicy, fresh and served with rice. It was one of the rare places I truly enjoyed crab. The barramundi wings are to die for. Scallops, barramundi and oysters followed. I was in heaven. \

Enjoy a morning, pre-sunset or sunset tour along the iconic Cable Beach. Alison Bird and her team ensure your experience is safe, and, most of all, enjoyable. Camels were “love at first sight for me”, she says. \

’m a firm believer in walking on a full stomach. Devouring a farmer’s breakfast in front of a log fire is a sure-fire way to sustain the body for a big day hiking. It’s 7.30am and we’re in the township of Woodend, an hour north of Melbourne, looking up at the Macedon Ranges from a family-owned coffee shop. We’re savouring an open fire and hot coffee before stepping out into the bracing cold to begin our 30-kilometre-plus hike up and around Mount Macedon. The car thermometer says it’s two degrees outside and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. The mountain looks like something out of a J.R.R. Tolkien novel. It juts out from behind the maroon-coloured, corrugated-iron rooftops, shrouded by low clouds with a steely green hue. The circuit hike around Mount Macedon takes six hours if you are relatively fit, but allow at least eight hours in case you lose track of time at one of the many lookout points. If you have spare time, take 20 minutes to explore Hanging Rock and its maze-like rock formation. It will cost you $10 at the car park. You can step on to the Macedon walking track from any of the six points where it intersects with the road, or at any of the picnic grounds. Overall, you will ascend to about 1000 metres and drop to as low as 580 metres. We start at the northern-most tip of the walk, Camels Hump, where there is a car park and an extra 10-minute walk to the summit with views of Hanging Rock. Camels Hump is well-known for rock climbing and the lookout is a great spectator spot. As you make your way around the Mount Macedon circuit, you quickly realise how non-strenuous it is to explore the terrain. The trail is one of the most forgiving, well-maintained and defined in Victoria. You could probably manage

Australia’s new home for property


PACK this it in a good pair of runners. That said, there are sharp ascents and strenuous points along the way. The Mount Towrong trail, which runs off Anzac Road, and the lead-up to the War Memorial Cross are steep and require a few breathers. Between Anzac Road and the trail to the Memorial Cross, the trail is the road. Admittedly, whenever you hike on a road, you feel a little cheated. Thankfully, the road guides you through the mansion-lined streets of the township of Mount Macedon to the local pub, which makes the perfect halfway point. The Mount Macedon Hotel was recently on a renovated and it’s still everything you clear day would imagine it to be: mulled wine by the you can see glass, pot pie, an open fireplace. port phillip There is a sign above the bar that reads bay “Home of the Mount Macedon Yacht Club”. When we ask about it, the bartender laughs; “There’s no club, mate. But there is a muddy pond out the back if you are so inclined.” Points of interest along the trail include the 21-metre-tall War Memorial Cross from where, on a clear day, you can see Melbourne’s skyline and Port Phillip Bay. In summer Mount Macedon can be very dry, although much of the beauty of this place depends on the woolly weather and the moisture of the rainforest. Towering trees hollowed out by fire and termites, fields of fluorescent green ferns, the ground carpeted by fallen leaves and 10-metre-long strings of bark hanging from huge eucalypts make it an eerily peaceful walk below the canopy. When you finally emerge from the damp shade, there is always a good rock to sit on with a great view. This is when you pull out the snack bars and the camera. \ The WAr memoriAl Cross emorton@theweeklyreview.com.au

footwear \ The trail is well kept and well worn but there are steep climbs and descents. You can do this walk in a good pair of runners but if you’re serious about doing it right, wear sturdier shoes. water \ The body needs two litres of water a day even without the 30-kilometre hike.
