Virginia trioli \ THE COMMUNITY DOG
here’s this bloke I know who quite likes dogs. He likes their company and companionship, but he likes them only in small doses. He likes to have them with him, but only sometimes. So while he certainly has the means and the circumstances to be able to have a dog fully in his life, he doesn’t want to own a dog. Instead, he borrows one. He has a colleague with a very sweet, fluffy thing who, from time to time, accompanies him to his weekend retreat, and who flies with him to his outlying properties (the dog’s weight has been recorded for the light-plane inventory) to spend a couple of days frolicking in the bush and lying by the fire. My mate gets the pleasure of his company, the dog gets an exciting change of scene and a damn good exercise and the dog’s owners get a few days off from the sometimes-tedious requirements of dog ownership. Just like taking the neighbours’ kid with you to the footy. But with fur. When I once asked my friend why he doesn’t just get a dog of his own, he answered with killing logic: “Why would I? I can just borrow one.” Hard to argue with that.
They say it takes a village to raise a child but, since talking to my friend, I have realised that there are whole communities out there involved in the care and pleasure of dog company, while sharing around the responsibility of ownership. My mother’s dog, Polly, regularly crosses town to spend time with my sister and her ageing Pomeranian: a little holiday in the ’burbs that the two seem to enjoy. And our chocolate Lab, Bunk, has a range of social scenes and alternative dwellings that make his life far more adventurous than our own. One set of close friends have always loved dogs, but their peripatetic lifestyle makes dog ownership difficult these days. So, instead, they regularly collect our dog on a Friday and take him with them to their place in the bush for the weekend. Bunk comes back muddy, happy and exhausted and we get a little break from the intense demands of a five-year-old Labrador. Another friend, who secretly craves a dog of her own but lives in an apartment above her business, borrows Bunk for a couple of days of vigorous walking in the inner-city’s beautiful parks and gardens. Bunk always returns from these jaunts looking
so sleek and healthy, and just as happy to be home. I’ve written here before about the documented effects of companion animals, particularly in the lives of the elderly, infirm and disabled. One pediatrician I know once had a dog that was allowed to accompany her on her hospital rounds: nothing made sick children happier than seeing her sweet puppy loping behind her along the corridors. What I like so much about my friend’s relationship with his borrowed dog, and other situations like it, is that it provides yet more evidence that more of us are choosing to live in a much more interconnected, community-minded way, sharing responsibilities and resources with care and affection. As our cities become more densely populated and resources become a little more scarce, as our community ages and requires more care and attention from all of us who share a neighbourhood, we are going to have to pay more attention to each other, and look after each other, and each other’s families, in ways that we haven’t before. It won’t be hard work: it’ll be fun, I promise you. There’ll be grannies, kids and dogs – and there’s very little that’s bad about that. \

PETER WILMOTH meets rising comic star Nazeem Hussain Cover Story
azeem Hussain is a young man at the beginning of what promises to be a strong career in comedy and he’s a great storyteller, which will help in that regard. We’ve met on a wild and woolly day in Prahran and, amid jokes about what the wind has done to his hair for a photo shoot, he tells a great story about his can-do Sri Lankan-born mother, Mumtaza, who raised Hussain and his two sisters on her own in Burwood. “Kids tease you at school,” he says. “For us it was always race-based. Kids will always pick on the most obvious difference. So I’d go home and tell my mum about what had happened. Mum would help us devise plans to reverse-tease the kid.” But the bullying continued. “In year 7, these kids were bullying me. I don’t know why I mentioned it to my mum. When I went to school these bullies were super nice to me for an entire week. I had no idea what happened. One day I was walking to the school gate and mum was standing there with a bunch of bullies from the year above me and they had bags of chocolates and lollies in their hands. So she had bribed one group of bullies to get another group of bullies off my back. She contracted a gang. She understands power.” But dealing with another group of bullies needed a different strategy. This time Mumtaza decided to bring in some muscle in the form of the Victorian premier. “My older sister was getting bullied. Mum went to the principal, who was best friends with that kid’s mum and she didn’t want to do anything about it. She said, ‘You’re probably imagining it, just get over it’. You don’t tell my mum to leave something alone. She went to the local MP’s office – Jeff Kennett – and said to reception, “Is Jeff Kennett around?’ The receptionist said, ‘Sorry he’s busy’. Mum just walked past reception, went into Jeff’s office and said: ‘Jeff, you need to come and do something about this bully at my daughter’s school’. “Fifteen minutes later my mum walked into the principal’s office with Jeff Kennett and the principal said: “Mr Kennett, I think Mrs Hussain is over-stating the issue’. Jeff said, ‘No’, and told the principal off.” At 28, Nazeem Hussain already has an impressive comedy CV. A presenter on radio Triple J, he was a regular on a Foxtel show called Balls of Steel, performing a character he created called Calvin Khan the “very foreign correspondent”. He was half of a comedy duo for Triple J sketches called Fear of a Brown Planet, which became a stage show taken across Australia, Asia and

Britain, including to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Hussain also starred in the cult hit Salam Café on SBS. Now he’s about to go mainstream with his own 10-part weekly comedy series on SBS called Legally Brown, as well as an appearance this week on Peter Helliar’s ABC comedy It’s A Date. Legally Brown is Hussain’s biggest project. It will be, he says, a mix of stand-up, sketches and interaction with the public, plus a bit of hidden camera. “Some of the sketches are funny … in others we try to address some serious issues,” he says. His comedy is sometimes referred to as controversial or edgy. Once, while performing stand-up, he told the audience, “In Australia white people tend to be pretty paranoid about Muslims”. He then went on to relate a story about going into a shop in Moe where a staffer said, “Muslims are coming to invade Australia, al-Qaeda is coming to invade Australia, to invade Moe”. The punchline came as Hussain pointed out it was highly unlikely Moe was al-Qaeda’s next target. Still Hussain is bemused that people describe his humour as edgy. “I think people always like to go, ‘That comedian is x, that comedian is y’. With me, people will often use the words controversial or edgy, or preaching to the converted. As much as I don’t like these sorts of labels, I think it’s inevitable. “I think ‘controversial’ is an easy way to dismiss someone. It means you don’t need to engage with the issues. I think it’s very dismissive, almost patronising sometimes. Comedy is intrinsically pretty rebellious. That’s sort of the nature of it. If comedy doesn’t provoke or make you think in a certain way, or think outside of a box, it probably isn’t really doing its job.” Hussain’s parents arrived in Australia from Sri Lanka

On the third visit, customers are expected to help someone else. It’s all part of a broader philosophy that helps owner Catie Gett keep the prices low at her unique wholefoods shop. Gett, a naturopath, set up the business just over 12 months ago on a low budget and with the dual goals of environmental sustainability and broad accessibility to high-quality health foods. “When I was working as a naturopath I wanted somewhere on the south side of Melbourne that I could send people to for quality products to help with healing,” she says. “The health-food movement in Australia has become a premium industry. I want everyone to be able to afford a really good health-food diet in a way that is not intimidating.” Gett has worked in health-food shops and ran her naturopathic practice in Ormond. Once the shop is well established she hopes to practise again, but for now says she is able to help more people with advice through the food business. “When I opened the shop, I had about $350 in my bank account. The initial fit-out was put together from the local hard-rubbish collection and with help from friends.” Recycled playground equipment and shipping containers have been used to create the practical timber counters lined with white plastic tubs that fill the tiny shop. \ Got any providore suGGestions?

challenges and allows these kids to be cared for as they should be. For me to be involved and help raise money with something I have an abundance of – like the clothes in my wardrobes – is easy.” Many women love to spend on fashion and beauty, but there’s an extra buzz when we repurpose preloved items and fit them in our own sartorial message. Nothing makes the heart beat faster than finding designer-label items for a fraction of their retail value. Give In Style is about being involved in the hunting and gathering and it allows you to buy fashion brands while giving hope to kids who need it most. It’s a win-win situation. “Preloved fashion is the perfect way to mix in with your favourite basics and go-to pieces,” Maxwell says. “The key is to make it your own and give them a new story to tell. I love a good blazer and ripped denim jeans, so rework a well-fitting pair of jeans with DIY rips and get an amazing jacket tailored to fit.” This year, pieces have been donated by Vogue editor Edwina McCann, Bassike founders Mary Lou Ryan and Deb Sams, TV personality Rebecca Judd and fashion designer Yeojin Bae. Rowe says money raised provides vital support for orphaned or abandoned children. “Educational success … can transform a young life and give them the courage to face the challenges that lie ahead,” Rowe says. “More than 160 young people have received essential educational assistance as a result of support from Give in Style. Such support paves the way for improved academic outcomes for a group of young people who are at high risk of unemployment, drug use and criminal activity.” \ firstname.lastname@example.org » www.facebook.com/GiveInStyle » Give In Style, ground floor, 31 Izett Street, Prahran, September 6-7.

to Magnetic island SNORKELLING AT ARTHUR BAY
emember that week in early June when foul, freezing weather plunged everyone into despair? I don’t. By sheer luck I’d booked a break on Magnetic Island, so while Melbourne endured the depths of winter I was in a place where it’s always summer. Maggie has about 320 sunny days a year and an average maximum of 28 degrees – far better odds for a winter escape than the Gold Coast, Cairns or Bali. With direct flights from Melbourne to Townsville, summertime is never more than three hours away. The biggest surprise about the island is not that it’s so affordable, or that the cane toad races are so much fun, or that there are 25 mostly drop-dead gorgeous beaches. No, the biggest surprise is that there was hardly anyone
there. It felt like I’d stumbled on a secret paradise. I’m already planning a return visit this month. Ideally I’d follow the inspiring example of one of the island’s bus drivers, a climate refugee from Geelong, who told me he’d planned to stay on Magnetic Island only for six months. “That was seven years ago,” he said. “Nothing could convince me to move back to Australia now.” \ email@example.com » Jetstar flies from Melbourne direct to Townsville, www.jetstar.com.au/ The Sealink ferry from Townsville to Magnetic costs $32 return full-fare.

Holiday rentals are a mainstay of the Magnetic Island economy. Rent anything from a fibro shack or beachfront apartment to Lotus House, a three-bedroom tropical beacon on Horseshoe Bay Beach with sleeping for six. It’s one of the island’s poshest properties and is priced accordingly – from $5600 a week. Still, between six, that’s less than a thousand bucks each. For more rentals: bestofmagnetic.com \
Maggie’s swishest resort has 106 apartments and rooms, with another 56 under construction. Accommodation ranges from hotel studios to contemporary two- and three-bedroom apartments. The pick is 10 block; apartments there have plunge pools and are bookended by the marina and the lagoon pool. Boardwalk Restaurant & Bar offers suitably upscale dining. There’s an on-site Endota spa, too. \
Recently upgraded motel-style units offer comfortable, clean lodgings a thong’s throw from Geoffrey Bay. But the real draw of the Arcadia pub is that it’s the social hub of the island. Cane toad races on Wednesday nights, bingo Friday and Sunday and live music at weekends keep the place pumping. There are also two pools, regular market stalls and Caffe dell’Isola, an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and gelateria. \
My favourite thing to do on Magnetic Island is nothing. But if you insist on being active, the island is your oyster. The four main settlements – Picnic Bay, Nelly Bay, Arcadia and Horseshoe Bay – are linked by a regular bus service that also stops at the Bungalow Bay Koala Village, a backpacker resort where visitors can cuddle koalas and get up close to crocs. Cute. Maggie’s total population is barely more than 2000, and almost 70 per cent of the island is national park, so it is best explored on foot. Horseshoe Bay is a sweep of golden sand on the north shore offering watersports of every inclination. Beautiful Balding Bay Beach, one of Maggie’s three unofficial nude beaches, is a short, worthwhile hike over the point. Have the bus drop you off at The Forts, a two-hour return walk of gobsmacking views. This is also the starting point for a sweaty but rewarding walk to the postcard-pretty beaches of Florence, Arthur and Radical bays. Highly recommended. Geoffrey Bay is a marine reserve, popular for snorkelling and the dive site of the Moltke wreck. At the northern end of the bay, at Bremner Point, wallabies descend en masse at dusk in the hope of being fed by tourists. Great photo ops. \
eat here Fine dining’s not really Maggie’s style but you can still find plenty of good food. Locals rave about Philippe Poitou’s French fare at Le Paradis in Nelly Bay (corner Sooning Street and Mandalay Avenue). Noodies on the Beach at Horseshoe Bay serves some of the better coffee on the island and offers ripper margaritas to match its Mexican-styled menu. The Hotel Arcadia’s bistro gets some stiff competition on Wednesday and Friday nights from Nell’s Indonesian (try the chicken curry, mee goreng, gado gado) and on Friday and Saturday nights from Mi Orchid Thai. Both operate from a kiosk beside the beer garden. \ september 4, 2013 \ The weekly review 13

where \ Cathedral ranges state Park
distance \ 15kms (one day)
rating \ 9/10
ore than 90 per cent of the Cathedral Ranges State Park burnt in the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. Today, most of the trees are still black and some look more like precarious charcoal sculptures ready to be blown away by the next gust of wind. That said, the scenery in the Cathedral Ranges is dramatic and quickly changing as the forest floor continues to repair itself after the fires. The scenery varies dramatically from dense fern forests full of wildflowers and uprooted trees clad with wild mushrooms, to the always muddy and sodden creek trail, to the rocky summit with an abundance of spiny bushes and sun-bleached, windswept trees. About 2½ hours north-east of Melbourne and about 15 minutes from Marysville, just off the Maroondah Highway, the Cathedral Range State Park is home to the two best day walks Victoria has on offer. Once you tackle either walk, you’ll see why this little-known, steep and rocky mountain range is widely regarded as one of the most diverse, scenic, challenging and still accessible day-walking destinations in the state. It’s a real hiker’s mountain. There are two main trails – the northern circuit and the southern circuit. The southern circuit is much more difficult and better suited to more experienced hikers. Sugarloaf Peak, the notorious Razorback Ridge and Wells Cave are all on the southern circuit. The northern circuit also has its difficult sections, but it is more forgiving and doesn’t force you to scramble up near-vertical cliff faces like its southern equivalent. In my opinion, Cathedral’s northern circuit is the perfect introduction to full-day hikes, which will challenge your fitness and your wit. In total, the 15-kilometre circuit will take at least six hours to complete with a total elevation of 840 metres. There are two preferable starting points; Cooks Mill and Neds Gully. Both are hike-in and drive-in camping grounds with rainwater tanks and toilets.

from the get-go, the track doesn’t beat around the bush
jaw-dropping view of Lake Mountain, Sugarloaf Peak and the farmlands on either side. As you pass Cathedral Peak and eventually branch off from the ridge, take the time to visit Little Cathedral Peak. It involves another steep climb, but it is arguably the best view on the entire walk. Descending back on the eastern slope to Neds Gully, a dense rainforest setting on soft, mossy terrain is a welcome relief for the ankles and knees after a couple of hours navigating the uneven boulders of the ridge. The remainder of the hike is a leisurely stroll along the Little River Track from Neds Gully back to your car. But it is here where the most dramatic scenery change takes place – hectares of tree logging fields rotting under the façade of Jawbone Peak. Admittedly, it is not what you’d expect at the end of what is otherwise a very untouched and organic trek, and it just highlights how dramatic and contrasting the landscapes are here. \ firstname.lastname@example.org
water & fooD \ Even on a cool day, you will power through your water supply so carry at least two litres, more if you can. That said, do not overpack your bag and try to stay as light as possible – maybe have a good breakfast and hold off for a feast afterwards. gear \ Hiking poles will come in handy as an extra pair of hands for people not used to such steep and demanding terrain. Always bring a lightweight raincoat or poncho; the weather moves fast on the peak. safety \ Always tell someone when and where you are going. \

From the get-go, the track doesn’t beat around the bush (pardon the pun). From Cooks Mill car park, enjoy the short descent to Jawbone Creek before the long and relentless climb up Cathedral’s eastern slope. Three-quarters of the way up is The Farmyard hike-in pause point/camp spot. This small plateau, with a well-used fire pit, is the overnight stop of choice for people walking both circuits in two days. When the bush finally opens up and you step out onto the seven-kilometre long Cathedral Ridge, you learn quickly to keep your footing. This is definitely the highlight of the hike as some sections feel as narrow as a metre wide with almost sheer drops on either side. The traverse, almost a kilometre above sea level, involves some pretty athletic boulder hopping and the orange guiding pointers, which by now will be familiar, are much less conspicuous up here, so keep a sharp eye out and do not rush it. Apart from staying on the track, it’s also worth slowing the pace to appreciate the constant

footwear \ The majority of this hike is on loose rocks, uneven sandstone, boggy mud and giant boulders, so you will not be able to complete this hike in a pair of runners. Waterproof boots with ankle support and quick-dry mountain socks are a must.
