Virginia trioli \ THE CASUAL RACIST


he 1986 American movie Soul Man was a brave, and even the banality of low-key racism among friends: even foolhardy venture. Starring teen star hey, we’re just kidding! C. Thomas Howell, it told the story of a young It’s a scenario every person reading this column man who missed out on entry to Harvard law, and who will know. The mates who told that Aborigine joke decided to darken his skin and pass himself off as black the other night, or made the crude gay reference, or in order to get in on a scholarship. the off rape gag, well, they’re all good friends, and you As a white boy in disguise, Howell suddenly wouldn’t describe any of them as racist, or sexist, or sees the everyday racism that he was once a homophobic. It’s just good-natured joshing among part of, and a running gag in the movie has a friends. Isn’t it? it is not group of frat boys repeatedly making racist Collingwood player Harry O’Brien last week funny – it is jokes in his presence (“How many blacks belled this cat when in the aftermath of the an unending Eddie McGuire furore, he spoke of the “casual does it take to change a light bulb?” “Two: sorrow one to hold the bulb, and the other to drive racism” that was at the heart of Australian the pink Cadillac around and around in society: the easy gags and epithets and put-downs circles.”). They end each joke with an apologetic that trip so lightly and unthinkingly from our gesture to him: “No offence!” He cops it, again and tongues; from those of us who would be horrified to be again, until he finally thumps one of them. considered racist. The movie was panned for the blackface of its lead O’Brien’s point was that it was deeply saddening to actor, and for the racist stereotypes it depicts, which him, that when many people look at him they don’t see only goes to show how hard it is to talk about this stuff a man but a black man and that an insult about that is in America. But the brilliance of the movie, and this often not very far away. particular repeated scene, is the ease, the naturalness “It is casual. Whether it is indirectly or historically,

we experience it because it’s almost like our racial discrimination has been hidden under larrikinism,” O’Brien said, and he is absolutely right. If you can’t cop it, and you can’t take a joke, you’re humourless and politically correct. If you complain about it and ask that it stop, you’re guilty of perpetuating the “new racism”, whatever that is. But it takes the person who walks around in that skin to tell us what life is like from their perspective, and they are not making it up and they are not being oversensitive when, like Harry O’Brien, they tell us they live with discrimination every day. It took the sight of a 13-year-old girl guilelessly flinging the insult around to wake many up to this. She didn’t understand what she had said – and that should horrify us. Australian racism is rarely vicious or spiteful or dangerous: we just aren’t that angry a people. Instead, it is casual, and joking and light-hearted. And for those who ache to be seen as every bit a member of Australian society as everybody else, it is not funny – it is an unending sorrow. \

took a job as a secretary at Newtown Boys High School. His boyhood neighbourhood 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. “In all honesty I was a bit of a smartie. And I probably incited some violence in some instances because of my mouth. I could stir the pot. 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 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

CovEr Story

From bingo David Wenham will always stay in our minds as Diver Dan. But, as PETER WILMOTH found, he is so much more 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 lack of pretension, Wenham is a natural storyteller. He takes me back to Sydney suburb Marrickville in the 1970s, in a household where he was the last child of seven. “There was a boy at the top, then there were five girls in the middle,” he says. “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 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 fiancés 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.” His father worked in the same job for 49 years, and when Wenham was old enough for school, his mother

go by. So I’d have to turn to the board 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.”


hen he returned home he had a taste of real fame. “I became instantly aware that there was a recognition factor in this country that I had never encountered before,” he says. “That was a little bit weird but it was nothing that was unsettling.” He was even 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. He had a remarkable taste of being in big-budget films when he was in New Zealand shooting Peter Jackson’s 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 and everyone was fully armoured, and then they

avid Wenham wanted to be an actor since he was a young boy, but in the working-class Sydney suburb where he grew up, it didn’t seem to be a dream that was going to come true. “I knew what I would have liked to do, but I didn’t actually believe it was possible,” he says. “The generation now is infused with that sense of self-belief 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 (Lord of the Rings and 300) and smaller works (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 an upcoming 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


rode (along) 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. He and Magda Szubanski made a film with [the] 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 Benelong. “What drove me to do it? I suppose frustration with what was happening in the country.” 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.” He loves AFL and the Sydney Swans. His passion for football is interesting considering he grew up in Sydney’s 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

“in an alternative universe … to be a dancer would have been amazing” was then the VFL 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. But 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 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 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 at home. What do the kids think of their dad’s acting? “Sometimes at home they think my acting stinks,” he says, smiling. “I think I’m rather funny sometimes but they just roll their eyes at me.” \

’ve just squirted the water out of the heads of two Lalaloopsy dolls after they’d been in the bath and if you think I wrote that in a language other than English, you’re not the mother of a six-year-old indigo child. I just heard of such a thing. Indigo children, that is, not Lalaloopsy dolls – those spooky little toys I know too well. They have fake button eyes and are actually meant to look like they’re handmade. But they’re plastic and made in China, which is the strange topsy-turvy world we live in now. But no, I’m talking about indigo children. I actually just discovered the phenomenon when a mate linked a story about them on Facebook. An indigo child, according to Wikipedia, is a new-age theory that suggests some children possess supernatural traits or abilities. The idea originated in the 1970s from a parapsychologist and psychic called Nancy Ann Tappe, who said she began to notice many children being born with an “indigo” aura. The woman is synesthetic, which means she sees things and people as colours. (A quick segue. I went to see a psychic recently. It was a silly spur-of-the-moment thing where I had to kill time and there I was right in front of a “healing” shop, and the aroma of incense drew me and my $50 in, and then down a garden path to nowhere. But it really was nice to find out I am an IT professional and the mother of two boys, one of whom is about to get married!) Anyway, back to the psychic who sees blue children. Apparently, they all have a series of similar characteristics – they are empathetic, curious, strong-willed, independent and sometimes thought of by others as a bit strange. They have a clear sense of self-definition, are often highly intelligent, but naturally of course, they’re anti-authoritarian.

They also have a strong feeling of entitlement and an innate spirituality. If you dig a little deeper into the highly authoritative world that is the internet, you’ll find parents talking about their indigo kids’ past lives, and websites that describe indigo children as being able to see fairies and dead relatives, and to travel to other worlds while they’re sleeping. I can’t believe I’ve come so far into my parenting journey without any knowledge of these little blue kids. They even have summer camps, conferences and counselling sessions for them, but one can only assume that all happens in the US. All this time I thought my kids were just plain naughty, when in fact they could be part of a rare, gifted über race. Maybe now I know why the six-year-old won’t get out of the bath when I tell her to, and why it’s always me, not her little royal highness, who needs to squeeze the water out of waterlogged Lalaloopsies so she can sleep with them without her pillow getting wet. It’s her sense of entitlement, her absolute belief that she’s here for a greater purpose. Ah, but wait. There’s no empirical evidence to support the indigo child theory and academics have slammed the concept as a way for parents to avoid actually admitting their kids might need some discipline, or a professional diagnosis. In fact, the concept has been linked with disorders such as attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder and obsessivecompulsive disorder and autism. I was excited there for a bit, and now I’m deflated. And worried. And blue … \ we welcoMe your feedback @

of male resistance along the way, and Night Games is peppered with high-profile incidents of sexism and exclusion that deserve a revisit. Krien is particularly interested in the games, and pranks, and rare instances of sexual abuse that occur within some AFL and NRL clubs. The grey area of no meaning no, or maybe, or well, OK, but not with all your friends, needs greater consideration, she argues. “Court, it seems, is not where progress is made,’’ Krien writes. “It’s just where things end up.’’ As the newspaper industry wades nervously through New Media’s unchartered waters, many reporters are being offered redundancy packages. Others are voluntarily stepping away; no longer comfortable with the stress of meeting hourly – not daily – deadlines. Local publishers must be congratulated for encouraging writers such as Krien to continue their craft via books. They should feel satisfied that this kind of reportage is valued by the community. Well-researched non-fiction about contemporary issues encourages debate. It will always have a place in our bookshelves. \

n March last year former VFL player Fraser Pope, 23, was acquitted of rape charges. A County Court jury delivered its verdict after hearing evidence from Pope, from the alleged victim, and from various witnesses who’d seen the pair outside the South Melbourne home of a Collingwood footballer on the night Her of that team’s 2010 grand final win. reporting Pope pleaded not guilty to claims he’d forced the woman to perform oral sex on him skills of this and then raped her in an alleyway near the episode are townhouse of the late John McCarthy, then a sharp Magpie player. As the jury foreman delivered each verdict, Pope wept. In her new book Night Games: Sex, Power and Sport, Anna Krien, who was in court that day, writes that the accused “lets out a huge wracking sob. His gasps seem to heave over his cordoned-off area, over the wooden banister, to his family. They let out a choking sound.” For legal reasons, the complainant cannot be named. Krien gives her a fictitious name, Sarah Wesley, and decides, in fairness, also not to name the defendant. For readers who recall the case and who might have strong views about the game’s blokey, exclusionist culture, Krien’s anonymous shield helps. She calls the player Justin Dyer, and this allows us – and VFL fans in particular – to follow the story with greater detachment. For three weeks, Krien followed the County Court rape trial. Her reporting skills of this episode are sharp, and she ably captures the courtroom drama. But importantly, the case allows her to springboard into the highly contentious hornet’s nest of women’s role in football. In the past 30 years, women have been hired to administer, report on, offer medical assistance to, and adjudicate over, the game. There has been a fair degree (Jesse Marlow)

Our shop’s bestselling food book in the recent Mother’s Day sales period was Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook. A panic attack and high-stress episode prompted the actor to review her diet and eliminate foods that had created an internal imbalance. After consulting a doctor, following his suggested diet for three weeks, and feeling so much healthier, she decided to write a book based on her experiences and including recipes for people with all kinds of food allergies. Lots of worthy material in this affordable hardcover, and converts to the no coffeealcohol-dairy-eggs-shellfish-wheat etc way of thinking will find it inspiring. \

“On the morning of its first birthday, a baby was found floating in a cello case in the middle of the English Channel.’’ So begins the story of Sophie, who is told by those who save her that she was orphaned in a shipwreck. But Sophie is convinced her mother is alive and escapes to Paris to find out the truth. While on her search, Sophie meets Matteo, a young tightrope walker who shows her the city’s rooftops and helps his new friend in her quest. A charming novel for readers aged 7-10. \

The ageing Mary lives in a pleasant northern Britain nursing home where, every few weeks, she is visited by her devoted 71-year-old retired academic son, John. With each visit, John is struck by dementia’s increasing grip on his mother’s mind. Their past – their childhoods, the neighbours they knew, the dances she attended – becomes their only conversation and John soon realises how little he understands of Mary’s difficult relationship with her own mother, Grace. This is a beautiful, tender novel that evokes the spirit of Thomas Hardy while dealing with the very relevant issue of dementia. Highly recommended. \

The Financial Review’s Katrina Strickland attended most of the major art auctions of the 2005-09 boom. As she witnessed record prices being fetched for paintings by John Brack, Albert Tucker, Fred Williams and the like, Strickland wondered about the role of the keepers of the flame – those family members who’d been left in charge of the artists’ estates, and who must balance love and duty with dealers’ greed and the opportunism of collectors and institutions. Part art history, part business and part biography, Affairs of the Art is an important document of record, and a great read. \

Court Music From the Planet of Love \ Prudence Rees-Lee » PrudenceReesLeemusician

top pick

The debut from this Melbourne University music graduate is an unashamedly quirky affair. Rees-Lee’s classical training is kept to the fore (opening track The Way manages to recall Suspicious Minds and Greensleeves), but a strong streak of kitsch runs through the 10 tracks. Her vocals are girlish and lisping, while the instrumentation mixes harpsichord with freaky synths. The naming of superb first single Emmanuelle after a classic erotica flick feels apt; there’s a similar fusion here of arty and cheesy. There’s also a delicate balancing act between willingly strange and accidentally daft. At times, it’s hard to tell if Rees-Lee is taking any of this seriously. Still, it’s hard not to be sucked in by the prettiness of tracks such as Come All Ye Fair And Tender Maidens — which seems to riff on folk standard The Water is Wide. Similarly, the layered vocals on Paradise give the track a haunting, almost spooky feel that recalls Paul Giovanni’s classic soundtrack for The Wicker Man (not the terrible Nick Cage version). Kate Bush remains the common ancestor for much kooky female pop, but here pastoral and vaguely psychedelic vibes recall early Bowie. Rees-Lee seems to have found her own place. Spacey, spooky and slightly silly, this is thoroughly impressive. \

Can Eating Insects Save The World? \ SBS ONE, Wednesday, June 5, 8.30pm »

There are, this British doco tells us, 40 tonnes of insects for every human. For most of us, this is hardly a fact to inspire lip-smacking. Yet, likeably childish presenter Stefan Gates decides to put culinary prejudices aside and heads to Thailand and Cambodia in search of new sources of protein. Unlike beef, bugs need little food and water and can fill a hamburger bun without flooding the globe with greenhouse gases. As Gates points out, meat is pretty gross too, if you take a long, hard look at the gizzards and eyeballs on offer in a Bangkok market. Soon, he’s scoffing water bugs, only to discover their crunchy carapace is full of icky green eggs. At which point, Gates turns a similar colour and foregoes a side-serving of scorpion. He samples crickets, ants and “land crab” tarantulas – the latter of which he hunts with a group of barefoot Cambodians. (Spider bottoms taste like cream, apparently). While there are valid points about illogical cultural sensitivities, the gross-out factor looms large. Gates seems less interested in opening our eyes to new ways of eating than in encouraging us to peer at the screen through our fingers. \

festivals Melbourne International Singers Festival \ Federation Square and other venues, June 7 to 10 » Czech & Slovak Film Festival \ RMIT Capitol Theatre and other venues, June 5-9. » Two new festivals launch their inaugural programs this week. The first invites singers of all styles and ages to participate in a wide range of workshops and concerts at and around Fed Square. Proceedings begin with the world premiere of documentary Beyond Hard Knocks, which follows the Choir of Hard Knocks for the six years since the TV series. Films of a different flavour are showing across town, as Melbourne’s Czech & Slovak Film Festival opens its doors. Highlights include film noir Into the Shadow and dark comedy Flower Buds. \

film You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger \ DVD and iTunes (Umbrella) » This Woody Allen comedy had a limited release at Australian cinemas last year, after Midnight In Paris. Long-time followers of Allen’s canon will be familiar with his ability to swing seamlessly between triumph and nadir (Stranger was actually made before Paris), but this is by no means a bad film. It is, however, supremely forgettable. The central device of a charlatan psychic (Pauline Collins) allows Allen to staple together a few troubled relationships. Helena (Gemma Jones) seeks psychic help as solace for her failed marriage to Alfie (Anthony Hopkins).

Collins’ predictions quickly envelope failed writer Roy (James Brolin), his wife, Sally (Naomi Watts), and their attractive neighbour, Dia (Freida Pinto). We’re on familiar Allen territory as these relationships unfurl – in fact, the film feels much like a lightweight retread of Husbands and Wives – but the director seems to lose interest halfway through, leaving us stranded at the end of the second act. It’s one thing to end ambiguously and another to shut things down on the verge of a climax. Still, it’s a pleasant two-thirds of a film, with some fine actors delivering half-decent performances. \

Site with 20-20 viSionS 9 Clarinda Street, Caulfield South 3162


ith historic sites dating to the mid-1800s (including the 1859 Brighton Cemetery), the Caulfield South area is these days dominated by Edwardian and Californian bungalow residences. Several grand Victorians indicate well-heeled settlement hailing from the late 1800s. Impressed by the substantial turn-of-the-century residence and just-off-Glenhuntly-Road location, it was ultimately the 23-metre frontage that sold this property to the current vendors. An interior-design student, Audrey Dalal, had ideas she wanted to implement and this house provided the perfect canvas. Six years later, the residence has been extended and innovatively renovated. What Dalal has done with the grounds should excite all family members, not to mention guests likely to share in hospitable benefits. As age is essential to the streetscape presence, the façade hasn’t been scrubbed-up or denuded of maturity. Freestanding and solid in Hawthorn brick, it’s crowned by a slate roof and heralded by an original, tessellated tiled verandah. With columned archways, soaring ceilings, American oak floors and an antique wall-mounted telephone, the extra-wide hall affords memorable entry. All four ground-level bedrooms (including an

melbourne’s best


optional lounge) have open fireplaces, with two under solid-marble mantels. The main bedroom has Indonesian doors to an en suite with twin basins and a two-headed shower, and a deep walk-in wardrobe. Reached by a secret rear staircase, the first-floor fifth bedroom or studio gets lovely afternoon sunshine. A Philippe Starck-inspired chandelier sets the contemporary-with-attitude feel of the vast, open-plan dining, kitchen and living area. Light floods through the glazed northern wall and designer touches such as the decorative woodpile, inbuilt breakfast table and remote-controlled gas log fireplace consolidate the wow factor. An avid chef, Dalal decked out the kitchen an inbuilt Ilve barbecue, double self-cleaning Bosch ovens and a butler’s pantry. As the previous owners purchased half of the neighbouring block, the property came with a north-facing side garden. Dalal transformed this garden into a sanctuary with a timber-lined cabana, luxurious pool, green area with play equipment, mini basketball court and extensive, bluestone terracing. A large section of the terrace has a waterproof canopy. Schools, shops, parks and trams are nearby. \ KAY KEIGHERY

CAulFielD \ 28 heatherbrae avenue A gleaming white stucco façade with red-brick detail announces this lovingly restored art deco masterpiece, set in lush, manicured gardens. Period details sing everywhere you look, from an abundance of leadlight doors with textbook deco handles to the elaborate ceilings and cornices that adorn every room. Even the coat cupboard has a stained-glass door. And the light; everywhere you go, there’s a warm glow, even on a wintry day. A large bay window dominates the lounge, throwing rays across the original fireplace in wrought iron and dark timber. Ducted heating only enhances the cosy feel. Picture rails create a deep ledge, perfect for hanging art. Double doors lead to an equally impressive dining room with a built-in timber display cabinet with glass doors. A more relaxed family room has soft, cream carpet, while a central kitchen gleams. The laundry and bathroom lead off of this space. Two bedrooms downstairs have ceiling fans and built-in wardrobes, while the larger of the two has a huge bay window. Upstairs, the main bedroom with barn-like ceiling has mirrored wardrobes and a sleek en suite. French doors lead to a decked balcony. The backyard has a covered deck, lawn area and paved courtyard with a studio in one corner. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

This apartment feels more like a spacious single-storey house, considering the large rooms, two separate living areas and backyard. It’s rare to find such features in an apartment. This is one of four in the art deco complex, which was built c1910 and was once a boarding house. Its style is typical of the European influence in the area at the time. A developer updated the block in the 1980s and added a second living area. The two bedrooms are at the front, with the main having a peaceful retreat with a bay window overlooking the manicured front garden. Classic touches such as cornices with rose detailing feature throughout. There are porcelain tiles on the floors and the ceilings have decorative roses. An atrium with a Zen-like garden allows light to saturate the living, dining and kitchen rooms. In the backyard, there’s a pretty bench seat nestled within the neat hedges, a single-car garage and barbecue. Elwood Village and the beach are within walking distance. \ ELIZABETH ANILE

Just completed, this single-level residence offers chic, up-to-the-minute style and low-maintenance living. An open floor plan, multi-use area just off the entry is a clever initiative. It’s a flexible study, lounge or utility area for school kids – all in one, featuring a large wardrobe. Meanwhile, rich, stained floorboards and white walls are a neutral backdrop to suit any style of art and furniture. Off the long hallway is the main bedroom, with a fitted walk-through wardrobe. The luxurious, porcelain tiled en suite has an easy clean, integrated sink-cum-benchtop. Two bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and share a bathroom similar to the en suite, save for a handy shower-over-bath. The open-plan entertainment area houses the kitchen with stainless-steel Technika appliances, gleaming white-glass splashbacks and a large CaesarStone bench with breakfast bar. The lounge and adjoining dining areas have sliding doors that reveal a neat, north-facing garden. The Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre, parks, shops and schools are nearby. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

This may be an Edwardian “one-of-a-pair”, but not as we know it. Typically, visitors enter through dark hallways at the dividing wall, but not here. The floor plan has been flipped, with aplomb. A transformation about seven years ago makes this an exciting residence; traditional on the outside, modern on the inside. Here, the hallway with four large windows faces north. Caramel and taupe walls, tiles and CaesarStone throughout, plus polished floorboards, create a natural backdrop. The main bedroom introduces high ceilings and windows clad in plantation shutters, which also feature throughout. A wall of built-in wardrobes abuts the skylit, chocolate-coloured, tiled en suite. Two bedrooms feature automatically controlled skylight windows and built-in wardrobes. The central bathroom has a bath. The open-plan lounge and dining rooms lead – via concertina and sliding doors – to a covered north-facing deck. Back inside, the kitchen has caramel CaesarStone benchtops, stainless-steel appliances and metallic-glass splashback. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

This classic, 1970s villa was built to exacting standards 38 years ago and has been in the same hands ever since. Thick, cream-coloured woollen carpets stretch throughout, with a large living room with high ceilings and detailed cornice arrayed around a broad bay window. A sliding glass door leads to the time-capsule kitchen with golden syrup-coloured, tiled splashback and original St George oven, which still works a treat and has a rotisserie spit. A folding bench is great for the morning coffee. The bright main bedroom is generous, with a shower en suite flanked by a pair of built-in wardrobes. Two other bedrooms at the rear have built-in wardrobes, too, and they share an orange and cream bathroom with separate shower and tub, with a powder room just outside. A gorgeous, low-maintenance courtyard garden has a pond with trickling water feature, while a deep, three-car garage currently has a workshop set up, perfect for tinkerers. There’s a bonus studio space at the other end of the courtyard. \ STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, of The Williamstown Eye Centre says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for almost all the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery and I did my training under him. He passed away three years ago but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,” Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. “One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision, even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.” No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.
