Review\ mouthing off

Virginia trioli \ it’s not you, it’s me

t

he biologist Richard Dawkins calls it “the selfish gene” – the ruthlessly striving parts of ourselves that aim to perpetuate the genes we carry, and that are in competition with each other, even within our own bodies. In Here on Earth, a surprisingly upbeat new book about the planet and the future of our species, the Australian scientist Tim Flannery wonders aloud at the rapturous reception Dawkins’ thesis received, published as it was on the eve of the “greed is good” ’80s. Flannery would want a less reductive dissection of our parts, and much less social Darwinism. Well, he may want in vain. The ruthlessly selfish part of ourselves has been on alarming display of late; indeed, to my mind it has become a kind of manic solipsism in which some of us have become incompetent in seeing where someone’s life experience is just that – belonging to someone else, and not in competition with us at all. Maybe it’s all this “over-sharing” I’ve been writing about recently. Maybe the selfish gene has gone mutant. A few weeks ago, when I read a wonderfully sunny and quite moving column by Sky News presenter Jacinta Tynan in The Sunday Age on the happy work of motherhood, I was clearly missing something. I just read an engaging first-person account of the pleasant surprise that Jacinta experienced in the challenges of motherhood. Sure, it was work – but lovely work. Not

like the misery of working at a job you hate; instead, it was working for the advancement of someone you cherish. The popular blogger and former editor Mia Freedman clearly knew something was up, however, and she said she read the piece with a sinking heart, knowing full well the firestorm of anger that other mothers would release on Tynan. Why? Well, because that wasn’t their experience of motherhood. They were finding it bloody hard, and how dare Tynan make them feel bad about not finding it as easy? They fired back, and blogs and letter-to-the-editors columns were filled with their rage. How do I say this gently? OK – I can’t, so here goes: it’s not all about you. Why would a struggling mum think another woman’s very different experience was any reflection on her? Why would a

“Why WouLd A sTruggLing mum Think AnoTher WomAn’s Very diFFerenT experienCe WAs Any reFLeCTion on her?”

reader confuse herself with an unknown author? The solipsism of our times has me absolutely beat and more than a little embarrassed. Is this where the tendency of first-person-narrative journalism has taken us – that all experiences have to be common, and to allow the reader to hold the paper up to her face and see her own reflection? Is this how small our world has become? I remember thinking this back at the time of the so-called Ormond College affair, when two students accused the then-master of harassment. Writers such as Helen Garner couldn’t believe it: what did this priggishness say about her generation of much tougher women who put up with lots of crap but never went to the cops? Well, it actually says nothing. Nothing about you – but lots about the person having the experience. And maybe there are little lessons or gems of truth to be taken from that experience; or maybe there’s even a whole lot of low-cost perspective that you can take on. Or maybe there’s nothing at all. Just the unfamiliar breeze of someone else’s point of view brushing past you in a crowded world. No comparison, no ruthless competition. Just difference. That’s all. \

EntrEprEnEur \ mothEr of two

ChAnnEL ninE prESEntEr \ modEL \ mothEr of two

What was your first racing experience? when i met my husband, michael Klim, in 2004, i was the face of myer spring racing carnival.

What was your first racing experience? five years ago my sister and i went to the races for a birthday party. i was only 21 and didn’t know what to expect and i had far too much champers.

(HannaH Mason / wireiMage/ getty iMages)

What are you looking forward to most this carnival? The fashion, it’s my favourite element of the races. And, of course, the champagne.

yeaRs of the cup

c

hecking out racegoers has become a national pastime, joining the red-carpet arrivals at the Logies and blue carpet of the Brownlow. Cringe as we may at the thought, in reality we can’t help ourselves. There are habitual offenders at the races who are not going to get a mention here because it would be more recognition for the absurd. In the midst of the fashionably challenged there are always beacons of style who star at the races. The stylish ones don’t stand out as they are always well co-ordinated and demure. I tracked down a few of these stylish ladies to quiz them on their preparation and their thoughts about the way to go this racing carnival season. Some of these women you will already know and others you won’t, but you will hear of them more in coming months. The pearls of wisdom from these women are spot on and very on trend. Read on and chant my mantra as you do – style is what you have and fashion is what you buy – repeat. \ askdhav@gmail.com

What are you looking forward to most this carnival? Getting frocked up and wearing a beautiful headpiece.

How far in advance do you decide on what to wear? i usually have a pretty good idea of what i want to wear several weeks before the races, and hopefully i find something i love or get something made.

How far in advance do you decide on what to wear? i tend to start thinking about what to wear about a week before, and it all comes together very quickly. What is the one thing you pay most attention to in your outfit? The one thing i make sure takes centre stage is my headwear. wearing a headpiece is a definite must. it is good to have traditions.

To wear a hat or not, and why? i’m not a huge fan of hats, i personally don’t think they look good on me and i think that you can achieve the same look with fascinators and other headwear. What beauty preparations do you do for the carnival? having two kids, i don’t really have time to prepare, apart from staying healthy with regular gym sessions and seeing my naturopath. But on the day i get my hair professionally styled and i do my own make-up.

What beauty preparations do you do for the carnival? i love a good manicure and pedicure; there are many places in melbourne – just make sure to tell your manicurists exactly what you are looking for. What are your views on tanning for the carnival? i am oK with tanning but it is good to stay as natural as possible. orange as a skintone is not a good look.

What are your views on tanning for the carnival? i am fortunate enough to have naturally olive skin, but one of my pet hates is seeing badly fake-tanned girls. if you are going to get a fake tan, make sure that it is a professional one, no diys.

What are your beauty essentials for a day at the races? Scholl party feet, a simple but effective prevention from having sore feet.

What do you carry in your purse on race days? Lipstick, blotting tissues, pressed powder, plus essentials such as phone and wallet.

What do you carry in your purse on race days? A tube of lippy, Band-Aids and a compact for quick touch-ups.

A helpful tip to see you through the carnival or a race day? don’t drink too much and make sure that you eat something. Also, if your shoes aren’t comfortable and you can’t last the day in them, don’t wear them, because bare feet at the races is not a good look.

A helpful tip to see you through the carnival or a race day? wear comfy shoes or take a pair of ballet flats for the way home. There is nothing worse than seeing women in bare feet with a pretty frock.

What do you think will be the winning hair, make-up look this year for the races? Simple, clean hair with dewy, natural make-up. Designers, milliners to look out for and why? toni maticevski, dior and prada. toni is a great friend and i adore his designs and i love the ’50s style of dior and prada at the moment.

What do you think will be the winning hair, make-up look this year for the races? i like natural, pretty tones for cheeks and lids. hair should be styled with soft curls that tumble over your shoulders beautifully, nothing overly styled.

What are you looking forward to most this carnival? Obviously first-class racing, but aside from that there is such a great vibe at the spring racing carnival. I love going to both Caulfield and Flemington. The Caulfield races are smaller and a little low key compared to Flemington, but who can overlook the Melbourne Cup carnival? Who are you going to the races with this year? My boyfriend, Gary Ablett, and I always go to Derby and Melbourne Cup days, and on Oaks Day (Ladies Day) I usually attend with a girlfriend. What is the one thing you pay most attention to in your outfit? Headwear. There are so many different options and shapes and sizes. It can become overwhelming and takes time to find the perfect piece. Your hat or fascinator needs to complement your outfit, not outdo it. To wear a hat or not, and why? A hat or headpiece is a must! Dressing for the occasion is definitely necessary. We have such great milliners in Australia and there are pieces to suit everyone. So there is no excuse to not dress for the occasion. What are your beauty essentials for a day at the races? Scholl Party Feet. If you don’t start with them in your shoes, make sure you have some in your bag. What do you carry in your purse on race days? Cash to put on a few bets (never too much. But hopefully I leave with more than I arrive with). Lip gloss, mobile phone, perfume and Band-Aids. A helpful tip to see you through the carnival or a race day? Always eat breakfast. Race days are very long and you need to make sure you’re properly energised. What do you think will be the winning hair, make-up look this year for the races? Nothing too heavy or over the top. I think fresh-looking make-up using golds and bronzes. Also statement lips – bright-coloured lips are huge this season, but make sure you find the perfect colour or shade for you.

What was your first racing experience? I was five years old and I entered junior fashions on the field on Stakes Day. My brother (pictured above) won the competition and took home a CD and DVD player and a huge television as first prize. I didn’t even make the finals, and I thought I was looking very fancy in my mum’s straw boater. What are you looking forward to most this carnival? I’m looking forward to seeing the flamenco performance in the Emirates marquee and tasting the Spanish cuisine prepared by celebrity chef Miguel Maestre. How far in advance do you decide on what to wear? I usually start thinking about hats first; the recent spring fashion week has given me lots of inspiration. Current beauty obsession: Nail colours in nudes and pop colours, White Glo teeth whitening and Crème De la Mer moisturising lotion. What are your beauty essentials for a day at the races? M.A.C. Cosmetics lipstick in Sandy B and Natura Bisse The Cure Sheer Cream SPF25 sunscreen. It’s so light and goes on smoothly. What do you carry in your purse on race days? Tipsy Toes shoes. They fold up in my handbag just in case my feet get unbearable when leaving the track. A helpful tip to see you through the carnival or a race day? Don’t peak too early, don’t wear 38-centimetre heels. It’s not going to work, and a lady should never ever be seen leaving the track in bare feet carrying heels. What do you think will be the winning hair, make-up look this year for the races? The Spanish-look hair, slicked back into a ponytail with a middle part. Designers, milliners to look out for and why? Nerida Winter is my favourite milliner. She does exquisite headwear.

What was your first racing experience? It was 1998, and I took a trip to the Nursery at the Flemington racecourse. What are you looking forward to most this carnival? Celebrating the 150th Melbourne Cup and seeing the incredible Emirates marquee design – it never ceases to amaze me. How far in advance do you decide on what to wear? I generally pick things up throughout the year and pull the outfits together about a week before the races. What is the one thing you pay most attention to in your outfit? The frock. I have a fear of buying anything new-season as inevitably there will be someone else there wearing the same thing. As a result, I generally opt for vintage or international brands to ensure it’s a one-off. To wear a hat or not, and why? I love a hat. However, as I am often working, it needs to be a functional hat. Again, I love scouring the vintage stores for something unique. What are your beauty essentials for a day at the races? A good foundation with sunscreen that will last the day and an easy-to-apply lip gloss. A helpful tip to see you through the carnival or a race day? I’m a shoe addict, but it is so important to wear shoes that you can walk, and stand, in for eight hours. What do you think will be the winning hair, make-up look this year for the races? 1950s glamour – French rolls, chignons, understated and sophisticated make-up. Designers, milliners to look out for, and why? Thurley, RAOUL at Crown has some very elegant and inexpensive styles, Grace Melbourne for a special one-off, and Nerida Winter’s hats are always a stand-out. Colour of the season? Nude, if you can pull it off.

Race Ready

EsthEr AndErson Actor \ WEstfiEld doncAstEr 2010 rAcing AmbAssAdor What was your first racing experience? my first racing experience was the melbourne cup about five years ago. i had beginner’s luck and i won on just about every race! it was great! What are you looking forward to most this carnival? i really love dressing up for the races. to me, the races represent the start of summer, and it’s fun to dress up in colours and be all girly after a long, cold winter. Who are you going to the races with this year? A group of girlfriends always come with me to the races. it’s the same crowd each year. We all really look forward to it and always have such a fun day! How far in advance do you decide on what to wear? About a week ahead. i never plan too far early in case it’s going to be too cold on the day. A friend gave me a great tip a few years ago – look at the forecast a few days before, then hit the shops! i don’t need too many excuses to go shopping. What is the one thing you pay most attention to in your outfit? shoes! The races are always a long day, so you need heels that are comfortable in, and make sure if your shoes are new that you wear them in before the race day. To wear a hat or not, and why? definitely wear a hat! it’s tradition, and when else do you have the perfect reason to wear one? There is plenty of affordable millinery to choose from, so keep an eye out when you are shopping. dress first, hat second. do it in that order so you are matching! What beauty preparations do you do for the carnival? do a light fake tan, but well in advance so there are no mishaps! And definitely get a pedicure and manicure! it’s the only time, apart from the logies, when i do. A helpful tip to see you through the carnival or a race day? get your bets on early so you aren’t rushing later in the day. What do you think will be the winning hair, make-up look this year for the races? This year is all about soft colours, pastels and nudes, florals and feminity. but the winning look is simply being comfortable with yourself. Designers, milliners to look out for, and why? i love Thurley, and their spring summer range has some gorgeous dresses perfect for the carnival. other favourite brands are collette dinnigan and Zimmermann. i recently did a photo shoot for Westfield doncaster, and the range of fashion was simply gorgeous and so eye-catching. The highlight was a carla Zampatti one-shoulder watermelon dress. i love how designers such as Alannah hill and Arthur galan now create millinery for their ranges – they become one-stop shops and your complete outfit can be so easily put together. for an extensive range you can’t go past david Jones.

FASHION

WITH A TWIST The Chadstone Fashion Stakes at Caulfield racecourse is not just for women. Event organiser Fiona Twist talks to SARAH MARINOS about the preparation and excitement that goes into making the day a success.

i

f you’re a “youthful fashionista”, a “classic lady” or a “stylish gent”, Fiona Twist wants to see you in all your finery at Caulfield in October. Twist is responsible for ensuring the Chadstone Fashion Stakes, a highlight of the spring racing carnival, runs smoothly each year. She’s quite serious about fashion herself and bought her race outfits earlier this year while on holiday in New York. “I do put a lot of thought into what I wear because I have to look the part. I buy a lot of dresses,” she says, laughing. “I stocked up on dresses in New York, so I hopefully shouldn’t bump into another woman wearing the same outfit. Last year at one of our competitions two girls wore the same dress and happened to register at the same time. So they stood right next to each other in the heats. Sometimes that happens.” As events manager at Melbourne Racing Club, Twist, 32, is responsible for ensuring fashion competitions at Caulfield run smoothly. Last year, more than 350 men and women entered the Chadstone Fashion Stakes – many of them serial entrants who spent months preparing.

SeriouSly faShionable “Some people enter on the day but many plan for a long, long time. They have millinery made to match their outfit or they have their bag made to feature fabric in their dress,” says Twist. “Men are taking more interest now, too. Before, we’d get a couple of guys and one of them might be on a buck’s party and entered for fun. But now the guys are taking it as seriously as the women.” Plans for the Chadstone Fashion Stakes begin in February, with decisions made about where to locate the stage and how many staff will run the event. Twist then gets to work building up a prize pool and arranging sponsorships. This year more than $70,000 of

prizes include holidays, shopping vouchers and jewellery. Since the competition opened in late August, the entries have flooded in. “This year we have a big screen next to the stage so people can see fine details on the clothes, and we’ve got a dedicated area where entrants can wait to go on stage,” says Twist.

from SoundcheckS to gift bagS On the day of the racing, Twist arrives at the course at 7am, gets her hair done on site and then drops off sponsorship signage around the course. After soundchecks, making sure that the stage looks up to scratch and ensuring there are enough gift bags for the entrants, she swaps her flat pumps for heels and her race outfit. Then she helps the judges find their place, makes sure the entrants are in the right place

yeaRs of the cup at the right time and tries to calm the nerves of the well-groomed competitors. “Now and again one of the guys or the girls do the catwalk and get disoriented and can’t remember where backstage is, so I direct them back. A lot of them are nervous, and that’s understandable,” says Twist. Twist doesn’t head home until the competition is wrapped up, photos have been taken, prizes have been presented and the competitors have headed home or have gone elsewhere to carry on their race-day celebrations. “It’s a very busy time but I love it. There’s a real buzz around Melbourne after coming out of winter hibernation,” she says, smiling. “Fashion is an important part of racing. Plenty of people come to watch the racing but many of them come to the races to see what everyone else is wearing, too.” \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

Airing our

dirty laundry

I

saw someone’s dirty clothes at an open-for-inspection last week. I think some teenager had left his bits in the laundry trough, probably for his mum to deal with, and she was so busy mopping the cork tiles and hiding the bill piles she missed them. And I still feel sick about it. I really didn’t need to see that little pile of muddy stuff that was once on someone else’s body. Houses are just so, well, personal. No one needs to see the dirt cracks in the soap or the stray bits of rice on the pantry floor. I guess that’s why people dehumanise their homes with brown, faux-suede rental couches and those big pots of dry sticks. It’s like there’s this strange disconnect, where we feel that if someone else lives a right and proper life in a house, it loses its marketability. Or is it that we just can’t bear seeing the detritus from someone else’s life, as it reminds us of our own? Often, someone’s ordinary taste is enough to turn me off a house. I will never buy a house that has a Dora the Explorer doona cover or a set of ’90s Ikea shelves filled with bills, and I’ll never, ever get over the horror of ‘‘the climbing house’’. There, the vendors had put a fake climbing wall in the entrance to their lounge, in what was presumably meant to be a wacky, zany statement about their outdoor lifestyle. But really, when they put those coloured grip things up the walls, might they have not realised this might not end up being the ‘‘forever house’’? We’ve been living in ours for almost 11 years, but I’ve always known one day we’ll leave it. It’s a weird feeling, like being halfway and not really where you’re going to be. And I’m constantly aware that one day people are going to walk through our home and pick it to pieces. So every time the kids put a bit of sticky tape on the wall or ding the kitchen cupboards with their scooters, I think about what that might cost me in painter’s bills and real-estate dollars.

You know how you never notice how dirty your house is until you start cleaning it – and then all the hairy-dust communities in the corners and the fingermarks on the door handles scream out at you? You didn’t notice them yesterday, you only notice them moment you’ve got out the Jiff and the Jex. That’s how I’ve felt about my house for the past 11 years. Every time I see dirt tracks on the blinds, I have a mild panic about having to clean them some time before we put the house in the market. And did I tell you I’ve been doing that for 11 years? But there are rules about open-for-inspections. You can look in the pantry but not the fridge, the wardrobe but not the undies draws. And you shouldn’t let your kids play with the vendor’s toys. Some friends once got kicked out of a house for talking loudly about the uneven floors. Seriously. And someone very close to me says he always has an urge to, well, ‘‘use the john’’ or ‘‘drop the kids off at the pool’’ or whatever you want to call it, when he’s at an open-forinspection. All he needs to do is look at someone else’s loo and, just like Pavlov’s dog, the call comes in. I was at an open-for-inspection once where a busting pregnant woman was begging the agent to let her use the loo and, to this day, I’m not sure why she felt she needed to even ask. Sure, there are protocols, but really, as long as she locked the door and flushed afterwards, no one needs to know. Certainly not the vendors, anyway. That would be like me finding dirty clothes in the trough, but in reverse. You’d never get over it. \

occupied by Mr Wolf) and came together again at Orange in Prahran. But now they’re back, just around the corner, serving up their own particular brand of conviviality. The pair named the café Dr Jekyll “because we’re on the corner of Clyde Street and we thought about Dr Jekyll and Mr Clyde; the name just stuck in our heads”, says Tuck. “It was time for us both to make a move, and we saw the ‘for sale’ sign on this place and took three or four serious looks at it. We feel this street is on its way up.” Merrington’s restaurant background and Tuck’s bar and café experience combine well here, and their obvious enjoyment in their year-old business is infectious. They walked into an empty space and have deliberately adopted a minimalist approach to the décor “to allow the café to build a personality as it grows”.

It’s already done that. They moved into the space next door a couple of months ago and there are plans afoot for a Mr Hyde. Matthew Tuck’s (pictured) BARISTA coffee background includes stints at Café Racer in St Kilda and Federal Coffee

Palace in the city, and he spent four-plus years at Orange. “We could go down the single-origin coffee route like lots of places in Melbourne,” he says. “But we’ve decided to stick to the Espresso Syndicate blend and our customers are happy with it.” Tuck is overflowing with praise for the coffee brand’s owner Melissa Floreani (ex-Gravity) and inspired by her focus on organic, sustainable coffee. The change of lifestyle, from working long hours and late nights to more flexible hours and independence, was motivated by a desire to spend more time with his young family. \

White walls, well-worn dark floorboards and dark tables are lifted by a cherry-red banquette lining the rear wall and a huge matching pottery vase holding a dramatic flower arrangement in this brightly lit inner-urban café. The doors are painted gloss black, but there’s little other visual stimulation. Market umbrellas over a broad outdoor deck attract the bulk of the crowd, but smaller tables and a bar overlooking the street are well used, too. The espresso machine at the open coffee bar is kept firing. The carefully extracted coffee is satisfying: a double ristretto offers bright notes of citrus and a minty afterbite, and there’s a pleasant, savoury taste that suggests toasty brown rice. A flat white features more of the savouriness, sweetened nicely by the milk.

hellenic republic \ all the fun of greek fare

GRil l e D C a l a m a Ri

RO a s t e D be e t ROO t s a l a D

(MAGGIE BuFE)

Calombaris is an enigma. The GeORGe few times I’ve seen him on that TV cooking show he seems highly excitable, but it’s

hard to get a sense of his personality. And that’s odd, because personality is what defines his expanding empire of restaurants; each has a distinct character and charisma aplenty. Hellenic Republic is a case in point. This bustling, bright taverna in East Brunswick remains as fashionable as ever with lovers of fine Greek food – which is most of Melbourne, so it’s still difficult to get in here. We book just a day in advance and all that’s left are two seats at the communal table. Sold. It’s the best place to sit, anyway, shoulder to shoulder with fellow diners feasting on chef Travis McAuley’s fine Greek fare. We kick off with the tyrokafteri, a salty, custardy feta baked in an earthenware dish with heavenly scented wild oregano and a right hook of chilli to cut through all the salt. This stuff is mother’s ruin – you know it can’t be good for you, but resistance is useless. Our handsome mosaic tabletop is tiled in Aegean blue and white with a Greek-key border design and craypot lampshades overhead. There’s a sort of wall of fishing rope and bricks just inside the entrance that lends some definition to the sizeable dining hall. An open kitchen and busy blue-shirted bar staff provide ample theatre, but diners’ attention is focused firmly on what’s in front of them. In our case, that includes a salad of bite-sized beetroot paired classically with cumin and yoghurt, which tastes every bit as good as it sounds. A Cypriot-inspired salad of freekah, raisins, almonds and coriander, also dressed in yoghurt and scattered with toasted pumpkin seeds, is less absorbing. A side-dish of warmed dolmades arrives with a luscious topping of egg and lemon sauce. In between dishes we have to contend with a waitress who seems totally unfamiliar with the operations of the place. I’m convinced she’s turned up to the wrong restaurant for her shift until I realise she’s wearing the same uniform as other staff here. She tells us the

COm mun a l ta b l e

e k me k k ata iFi Pa GO t O

specials – grilled scallops and grilled swordfish – but can’t provide a skerrick more detail about either. Asked to expand on the grilled scallops, she explains helpfully, “Well, they’re scallops, and they’re grilled.” We try several times to engage her with the menu but she’s giving nothing away. That said, she does try repeatedly to upsell us a combination plate of roasted lamb and chicken. I only have to tell her three times that one of us is vegetarian before she grasps why we wouldn’t be wanting a plate of animals to share. So I just get the lamb instead. The meat is slow-roasted with garlic and more of that intensely fragrant oregano, and then carved straight from spit to plate. Get it while it’s hot. The lamb is lush, nicely fatty with a salted skin, but I found it too much for one person. This may have been because at one stage we looked up from our gluttony to discover there were eight half-eaten dishes in front of us. We also shared the calamari, fat chunks of squid straight from the ironbark grill, dressed with a bit of olive oil, lemon juice, dill and salt. Close your eyes and taste the Cyclades. A 500ml carafe of Greek rosé makes surprisingly sophisticated drinking despite coming in a glass jar. The Republic’s wine list has become more Hellenic, to the point where now more than half the wines are Greek. And if the rosé is anything to go by, they’re not half bad. For glyka, or sweets, we agonised over the menu but eventually agreed on ekmek kataifi pagoto, a wedge of syrupy kataifi threads topped with a chunk of semolina custard drizzled in pickled sour cherries and their juices and, just in case it’s not sweet enough yet, the whole lot is dusted with icing sugar. There’s a ball of mastic ice-cream on the side but it’s a bit superfluous. The kataifi is marvellous on its own and, besides, we couldn’t eat another thing. Great meal, George. \

Way out west

JAMSHEED GREAT WESTERN WESTGATE SYRAH 2009 (Grampians) $40; 14% ★★★★★

Food match: Pork belly with lentils

This is made with grapes from 40-year-old vines that were whole-bunch fermented (which increases perfume aromas) and aged in one and two-year-old oak. It really does have lovely perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry, dried mint, cool-climate white pepper and dusty oak. There is a gorgeous rich texture, but it’s remarkably light on the palate with flavours of plums, dark cherries and graphite, with meaty, stalky characters adding even more complexity. It’s a super wine and will get better with age. SEPPELT JALUKA CHARDONNAY 2009 (Henty) $26.99; 12.5% ★★★★

Food match: Chinese stir-fried prawns

a disaster looming in my wine cellar, THERE’S discovered recently when searching for the right wine to serve friends at dinner. I’m running

out of wines from one of my favourite Australian wine regions – the Grampians. I love cool-climate wines, especially chardonnay and shiraz, and while there are plenty of regions that consistently deliver excellent wines, I have a great fondness for the the wines of far-western Victorian regions Grampians and Henty. On hot summer days my wife and I would often drive up the Western Highway with the air-conditioning blasting and listening to the cricket on the radio in between stops at wineries. There’s great history in the area, and it’s hard to not be seduced by wineries such as Best’s Great Western that are almost 150 years old and contain vines whose provenance can’t be traced, along with a patch of riesling vines that are some of the oldest in the world. There’s also a bunch of young winemakers such as Rory Lane (The Story) and Gary Mills (Jamsheed), whose fledgling labels are receiving critical acclaim in wine circles, along with Adam Wadewitz, who has taken over the winemaking reins at Best’s. I’m not wasting any time in replenishing my stocks, but before parting with my hard-earned, I sought the advice of an expert on the region’s wines, Jeremy Shiell.

The fruit for this wine comes from Seppelt’s Drumborg vineyard – one of the most southerly in mainland Australia. This is my kind of chardonnay, modern and lean, with aromas of nectarine, lemon, almond, a sea-like minerality and dusty, woody notes. Fruit flavours of lemon and Granny Smith apples with nuts and minerals are supported by assertive, linear acid. There’s driving length, too.

Jeremy’s the award-winning, acclaimed sommelier at the Royal Mail Hotel, Dunkeld – the region’s (and many would say Australia’s) finest restaurant, and custodian of one of our country’s finest wine lists. He points out that the region has all the fundamentals for good winemaking – old soil, good terroir, a continental climate with hot days and cold nights, old vines and adequate rainfall that makes the vines work just hard enough without the need for irrigation. “Shiraz carries the torch for the Grampians, but the work that Best's and Mount Langi Ghiran have done with their pinot meunier and old clone pinot noir is equally impressive, and Grampians riesling and chardonnay are seriously under-appreciated as well,” he says. “Sparkling, be it red or white, has a long and distinguished history in Great Western. Elsewhere, there are superb, truly cool varietals being made in Henty as vine age increases, pinot noir and cabernet leading the charge, while among the whites, riesling is truly world-class and chardonnay is not too far behind.” So, thanks to Jeremy’s advice, I’ll be stocking up on more than just the usual Grampians shiraz and riesling. There’s a new disaster looming: I’m running out of cellar space! \

BEST’S GREAT WESTERN RIESLING 2010 (Grampians) $22; 11.5% ★★★★

Food match: Sashimi

2010 produced ideal growing conditions for Grampians riesling, and this is a top example with power and elegance. It smells of citrus blossom, lime, quince and bath salts. Its texture is soft and creamy but there’s great acidity that leads to refreshing citrus flavours of lime and orange alongside pear and minerals. This should provide good drinking for the next 10 years. HOCHKIRCH SYRAH 2006 (Henty) $42; 13% ★★★★

Food match: Corned beef

Hochkirch is certified organic and biodynamic – even down to the cork. From the well-regarded 2006 vintage, this is showing some nice aged characteristics. Black fruit aromas jump from the glass – dark cherry, plum, blackcurrant and blackberry – along with liquorice, before rich and luscious flavours of blackberry cordial, fruitcake, olives and classy oak hit the tastebuds. A lovely, velvet texture and fine-grained tannins add the finishing touches.

WHAT’S HOT RIGHT NOW, ACCORDING TO JEREMY

Enigma variations in Henty; Tamara Irish's new project is producing elegant Rhone-style shiraz and continuing her good form with pinot noir as well. The Story's Rory Lane is making a lovely trio of Grampians shiraz and an excellent value-for-money pinot noir from Henty. John Nagorcka's fully-certified organic and biodynamic Hochkirch wines from Henty are always worth a look. There is a bit of a generational change in the old guard, with Adam Wadewitz making consistently excellent wines at Best's with the help of the family patriarch, Viv Thomson. And over at Crawford River, Belinda Thomson (no relation) is doing the same with the help of her father,

Refreshing Aged characters

John. Their riesling can go 20 years in the cellar with absolutely no problem, and even at that age retain its lovely spice, fruit, line and length. Gary Mills, under the Jamsheed label, makes really interesting riesling and great examples of Grampians shiraz.

STORY WINES THE WILDERNESS SHIRAZ 2008 (Grampians) $22; 13.5% ★★★★½ Food match: Rare beef salad I’ve been a fan of the past three vintages of this wine – it is great value for money. With perfumed aromas of cherry, plum, spice, vanilla oak, nuts and white pepper, there’s a lot of complexity here. A smooth texture and slightly grippy tannins are nicely balanced with fresh, slightly tart flavours of cherries and cranberries along with a nice, meaty character.

Review\ inteRview

our man on The InsIde aBC foreign correspondent Peter Lloyd’s life unravelled the day he was arrested in singapore for possession of drugs. But, reflecting on the 200 days he spent in jail, he tells PeTer WILmoTh it was a good thing he got caught.

P

eter Lloyd didn’t quite realise how fast his life was spinning out of control when he was arrested in Singapore in July 2008 for possession and trafficking of methamphetamine. “I completely agree with everyone who says ‘You’re a f---ing idiot’ because I was a f---ing idiot,” he says. “My capacity for rational thinking was so off the rails when I went to Singapore that I wasn’t thinking as far as tomorrow.” The ABC’s South Asia correspondent based in Delhi had developed an eye infection in Bali and a doctor in Jakarta told him he may be losing his sight. “I remember on the plane from Jakarta to Singapore sinking back in the chair and having the feeling I’d get at the end of assignments, falling back in time and space. It was one of those moments when I became very disconnected from reality. I wasn’t thinking as a rational person at that point of my life and I hadn’t been probably for weeks.” Lloyd faced five years in jail (not 20 years, as reported in Australia) on the trafficking charge. “It was terrifying because it seemed to me that it was a star chamber with no way out, that there was no defence possible to anything that you would say to them,” he says. “I think that’s their approach – to come in really hard upfront and see if people make admissions. Tactically that probably works for them. I think when people don’t make admissions or object to (or) challenge the charge, then they have to go back and do police work, which is exactly what happened in my case. What I said from the beginning was it was a false allegation about trafficking – they investigated it and withdrew the charge.” Lloyd pleaded guilty to possession, which meant he faced a 30-month term. “I was quite happy when they dropped the trafficking charge because I said from day one, ‘Yes, it was my drugs, yes, I bought it, here’s the reason


why’. Trafficking? Where did that come from? That’s madness.” We are in Lloyd’s Sydney apartment. You know a journalist lives here – there are books and DVDs and files everywhere. It’s the first time Lloyd has spoken extensively about the case that made headlines, the reporter becoming the news. And he has written a book, Inside Story, which charts his journey from a foreign correspondent suffering post-traumatic stress disorder to prisoner 12988. In the end, Lloyd received a 200-day sentence. “Ten months was good,” he says. “It was at the lower end. I think they went light because the psychological defence was studied by the Singaporeans and they agreed with it. The police who investigated me at the beginning were saying to me by the time I was sentenced, ‘We understand what happened to you, we feel sorry for you, but you must understand this is Singapore and we don’t have a lenient system. We don’t treat things the way you do in your country’. As coppers can go, they were pretty empathetic to me, and I’m grateful for that.” Jail was a shock at first but turned into a chance to witness another side of life. “At the beginning it was horrific,” he says. “It was so isolating and so strange and so foreign, and I was the only white guy in prison. You adapt. I have an adaptive personality, I think. I saw in the isolation the opportunity – it’s like going on a retreat, sitting on top of a mountain … and I found the time by myself was very therapeutic because you get to think, you get to process, you get to plan. “And I found prison kind of fascinating. When you realise it’s not dangerous – because it wasn’t threatening for me – you think, ‘Wow, this is an opportunity. How many journos get to see jail from that point of view?’ I found that when you talked to prisoners – because I’d spoken to prisoners as a journo before – (but) when you’re also a prisoner, and you are one of them, that equality of situation means they are more open with you. So I found them as a subject really revealing.” When the trafficking charge was withdrawn, so too, fortunately, was the prospect of being caned. “Every day you go to the yard they do a strip search. You only wear shorts and T-shirt. And you had to strip off and do a pirouette movement, open your mouth. So every day I saw the arse of the person in front of me, and I can tell you how many of them were caned. The unit I was in – 50 per cent had been caned. Caning leaves a scar mark across your arse. The skin is torn open. It is a vicious physical punishment designed to draw blood, cause scarring and to permanently humiliate the victim. It’s a very conscious form of, I thought, torture.”

L

loyd was a veteran foreign correspondent. He’d worked for the ABC in Bangkok for four years and in Delhi for two. It was his work that brought him to crisis point, covering the Bali bombs of 2002 and 2005, the tsunami, the bombings in Jakarta, the Afghan war, the Karachi bombing. Covering these events caused damage Lloyd initially couldn’t recognise or withstand. “PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) became a massive crisis in my case because I did not ‘download’,” he writes. “The ‘mental bucket’ was never emptied, and eventually it overflowed.” After the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan, Lloyd sat on a plane and cried for hours. “I desperately needed rest,” he writes. “I needed to get away from the relentless demands of being a one-man South Asia foreign-correspondent office in a network whose appetite for news content was only growing. But instead I stayed quiet. I sucked in the grief and stress, and I bottled it up again. And then I went back to work.” It was in Bali covering the bombings in 2002 that Lloyd started to fall apart. He writes of reporting on the piles of corpses that were rotting in the hot Indonesian sun, of seeing young Australian tourists lying conscious with both legs blown off, of his anger at witnessing local

schoolchildren instructed by their parents to help put corpses into body bags. “If you come out of that and you are not changed in some way, there is something wrong with you,” he says. “You can’t see something like that and have no reaction. The question for journalists is how much do you allow it to affect you? You have to let it affect you to a degree in order for us to do your job. You’ve got to be empathetic, you’ve got to feel something to report something. “I was kind of out there on my own. And the longer you are a correspondent, the more you tend to become a lone ranger in your judgment calls. You are given more rein, and you take it. You spin off from the mothership and it is quite isolating. There’s no one holding up a mirror saying, ‘You’re behaviour is going strange, you’re smoking and drinking too much, you’re angry – why are you angry, you’re not an angry person. Why are all these things going wrong?’ Or noticing, when they wake up next to you – because there was no significant other sleeping with me – saying ‘Why the f--- are you sweating, why are you … screaming when you wake up?’ None of those things were ever caught on to.” In prison, Lloyd was a novelty for a moment, and then one of hundreds in a jail it might surprise people to learn was reasonably comfortable. “It was like being in a tough Australian boarding school,” Lloyd says. “The experience for me wasn’t in itself traumatic. It’s a First-World country and First-World jail. It’s clean, it’s

“geTTing cAUghT wAs The besT Thing To hAppen To me. iT did me A hUge fAvoUr.”

Telling it like it is: Writing his book was a cathartic experience for journalist Peter Lloyd. (John Donegan)

hygienic, I had my own room, they were courteous to me all the time, I never saw any evidence of brutality of prison officers to prisoners.” Lloyd didn’t find being in jail threatening. “Some people put it to me that it’s just the Asian way, Asians are not as intimidating and physically violent as Caucasian prisoners,” he says. “That’s probably not true. But the nature of the criminals that I was with… they were petty crims, chancers, addicts, dodgy accountants, white-collar crooks, we’re talking the low-level offenders. I wasn’t among murderers or violent criminal offenders.” He never felt sexually threatened. “At the beginning I wondered whether that kind of thing happened … they were more scared of me. I was bigger than them. I would have punched them. So it wasn’t going to happen.” In the end he found benefits in being in jail. “I read 80 books. It was very therapeutic. To sit back and be alone and read and think and deliberately go in with a view that I would write was my way of dealing with it.” Lloyd knew he would write about the experience and, forbidden to keep a diary, used a pencil to write tiny sentences amid the text of books he was reading. He shows me the spidery words he wrote, which helped trigger memories when he wrote his book. Lloyd was released from prison on June 23, 2009. He flew to Thailand for a two-week “decompress” holiday before returning to Sydney. His next chapter was to write his own story. He borrowed a friend’s fisherman’s cottage and went “back into isolation”. He wrote the book for the catharsis. “It gets the poison out to write about it. I’d never spoken before and I wanted to have my voice on the story”. And it is an extraordinary story. For the private person he says he is, the book is revealing. He and his wife separated in 2005. They decided their two sons, Jack and Tom, would live with their mother. “She had

the opportunity to work for UNICEF in Bangladesh. I was travelling so much, we decided the boys would stay with her.” Jack was born with a rare condition called polymicrogyria, a brain deformation.

I

n 2005 Lloyd “announced I wanted to be gay”. “Being gay was a very easy choice. I hadn’t had a struggle during my life about that, I was an extremely happy heterosexual husband. And in Bangkok I think time alone, temptation, the alternative offering was there. “I’ve often wondered whether or not the trauma that went with that period – the going and seeing death and disaster constantly – just made me a little bit ‘You’ve only got one life to live, let’s live all of it, let’s have a taste of everything.’” The ABC sacked him the day he was sentenced. “The justification, I believe, was that I was unavailable to work,” he says. Last August, the ABC’s managing director Mark Scott told Lloyd’s ex-wife that when Lloyd returned and wanted to work, he should come in for a talk. “I think they wanted to see if I was nuts or whether I was going to sue them. I think they understood pretty fast that I was neither nuts nor was going to sue them. They were relaxed about me coming back. “I told them I was writing a book. Mark wasn’t happy about the book. I think he was concerned that it would relive the experience and not be good for the ABC.” Lloyd believes the ABC will be comfortable with it. Lloyd resumed part-time work in April this year, producing the news program Lateline. By June he was back full-time, and back on the road. “I think everyone’s comfort level with me being back in the building was reasonably high, so they asked me to start reporting again,” he says. “There are caveats to being back on the road. I don’t want to go and talk to victims any more. I don’t want to go to disasters any more. I’ve seen enough of them. That may change in time.” Lloyd’s partner, who lives in Singapore and works for Singapore Airlines, underwent an operation and Lloyd wanted to fly to Singapore to look after him, but is banned from returning for life. “They walked up to me at the airport (after leaving prison) and said, ‘Sign this piece of paper, this is an acknowledgement that you are banned from Singapore forever. You can make an application for special circumstances like conferences.’ Well, I tried, and they told me to bugger off.” Lloyd, 44, has told his story with a mix of the reporter’s eye for detail and a damaged man’s need for change. “I thought a lot about suicide in 2008,” he says. “I never attempted (it) and didn’t craft a way to do it, but I had suicidal thoughts. It (the saga) was about drugs for five minutes. The real issue was whether I’d make it through the year. Getting caught was the best thing to happen to me. It did me a huge favour.” We drop Lloyd at the ABC for his shift. He’s working on what sounds like a genuinely good yarn, one hot enough to get the lawyers involved. Lloyd has probably dealt with enough lawyers to last several lifetimes. Lloyd has written a searingly honest book. He truly has nothing to hide. He revels in the truth of what he’s seen and experienced. And he sounds a note of reassurance to those journalists who might feel overwhelmed by their work in the field. “I say to people, ‘I wouldn’t worry too much about other corros (correspondents) suddenly having a Peter Lloyd moment’ because everyone’s situation’s different,” he says. “We aren’t all alone. We aren’t all in a bureau alone. We aren’t all me.” \

GREAT STORY of a great storyteller McNEIL WAS ILL-PREPARED FOR LIFE ON THE OUTSIDE

» WASTED: THE TRUE STORY OF JIM McNEIL, VIOLENT CRIMINAL AND BRILLIANT PLAYWRIGHT By Ross Honeywill $32.95 (Penguin)

THE WEEKEND by Bernhard Schlink $29.99 (Orion)

FICTION

The author of The Reader is back with another powerful novel centred on issues of guilt, redemption, past mistakes and present dilemma. Christiane’s brother Jorg, a Baader-Meinhof terrorist and murderer, has received a pardon after serving 20 years in prison. His sister invites a group of his friends to the country for a weekend reunion – a scenario that invites confrontations and some opening of old wounds. It sounds like The Big Chill set in the German woods. It’s not. Trust us, and go on this gripping journey.

(HEMERA / ISTOCKPHOTO / THINKSTOCK / McNEIL COURTESY OF PENGUIN)

social behaviourist IN ANOTHER LIFE,  and writer Ross Honeywill would have been a terrific journalist. The

Tasmanian-based author is naturally curious and can spot a good story. He also has keen research skills and is prepared to shine light in dark corners, no matter how grubby or controversial. His 2008 book Lamarck’s Evolution is a beautifully crafted story about the professional and political battles of past and present scientists. He reminds us how tough it is for these men and women to, first, prove their theories, then to have those theories accepted by the wider research community. A few years ago Honeywill became intrigued by the story of Australian scientist Ted Steele and his fascination with early 19th-century French scientist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, whose groundbreaking research was picked up by Charles Darwin 50 years later. Unlike Darwin, Lamarck was shunned by his contemporaries and remained largely unacknowledged. Steele’s attempts to bring Lamarck’s work to life – at considerable professional cost – sparked Honeywill’s interest. In his new book Wasted, Honeywill dips into his own history. A chance meeting with award-winning playwright and criminal Jim McNeil in the early 1970s led to an unlikely friendship between the author, then a young Brisbane thespian, and the clever but deeply damaged ex-con. McNeil died in 1982 but his story stayed with Honeywill, who then went on to a variety of careers and is now CEO of the successful consumer think-tank, the Social Intelligence Lab. McNeil was born in St Kilda in 1935 but Wasted begins in the 1960s, when he had already established himself as an armed robber. In 1967, while escaping after a hotel robbery in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, he shot and wounded a police officer. McNeil was arrested and sentenced to 17 years in prison, during which time he joined “The Resurgents’’, a group of prisoners who

FOOD FROM MANY GREEK KITCHENS By Tessa Kiros $69.95 (Murdoch Books)

FOOD

The Tessa Kiros fan club will be overjoyed to see a new cookbook by one of their culinary pin-ups. Like her previous books (Falling Cloudberries, Apples for Jam and others), Kiros’s new book abounds in colour photographs and recipes from her eclectic background. This time, her focus is the heritage of her Greek Cypriot father. Kiros weaves her magic on even the most predictable Greek dishes such as baklava, grilled octopus, tarama balls and spinach pies, while we can’t resist a recipe that is titled “lamb in a flower pot with dill’’. In the genre of food memoir, Kiros is a leader. This new book will help cement her reputation.

debated visiting groups from outside the jail. McNeil started writing plays – an ambitious pastime for a man who’d never been to the theatre – and in 1970 prisoners performed his first play, The Chocolate Frog. He also wrote The Old Familiar Juice, How Does Your Garden Grow and Jack, all of which received enthusiastic reviews from visiting critics, including the influential Katharine Brisbane. His plays were later picked up by various Australian theatre companies, including the Melbourne Theatre Company, Q Theatre Company and Nimrod in Sydney. While in prison, McNeil formed friendships with arts identities such as Brisbane journalist David Marr, director Malcolm Robertson and lawyer Robyn Potter. His new friends successfully lobbied for an early release, and in 1974 McNeil was free. But attempts to entrench him as a Sydney theatre darling, plans for more plays and a brief marriage to actress Robyn Nevin all fell apart; McNeil was ill-prepared for life on the outside and he drifted. In 1982 he died of alcohol-related illnesses, a homeless and penniless wreck. In Wasted, Marr describes McNeil as a great storyteller. “One thing we underestimate is how much we love storytellers,’’ he tells Honeywill. “I don’t mean writers, I mean people who can tell stories, and he told marvellous stories.’’ Honeywill is also a great storyteller. Wasted is based on research and extensive interviews with many of the key protagonists in McNeil’s later life; the author also draws on his own encounters with his subject. But what gives the book its guts is Honeywill’s ability to take all this rich material, turn on the laptop and let the story flow. Many readers may never have heard of Jim McNeil. No matter. This engaging narrative will have you turning pages vigorously. McNeil, the storyteller, would be proud. \

COCO CHANEL: THE LEGEND AND THE LIFE By Justine Picardie $45 (HarperCollins)

BIO

Not another Coco Chanel biography! But wait, this one works on a deeper level than many that have come before it. Sure, there is the predictable Chanel-esque black-and-white cover. And many of the images inside have been seen so often they have become fashion clichés. But Picardie, a respected UK-based fashion writer, tackles her subject with a journalist’s forensic eye and ear. She has uncovered some new stories and views about the world’s most famous female fashion designer – just in time for the pre-Christmas market. At $45, how can you resist?

MADEMOISELLE LISA by Delphine Perret $14.95 (Black Dog)

HUMOUR

Life as one of the world’s most recognised women is not always fun. In fact, as Mona Lisa realises, hanging around in a French museum all day can be pretty boring. What happens, then, when Mademoiselle Lisa jumps out of her frame, hits the streets and starts living it up as a normal person? The publishers sold this to our shop as a kid’s book. We disagreed and have put it up the front of our shop, where adults, kids, grannies and even grumpy old men have picked it up and had a laugh.

REVIEW \ UNDER THE RADAR

MUSIC FOLK OFF! Until last year, when Mumford and Sons banjoed their way onto the airwaves, the word “folk” equated to musical death. Now acts are falling over themselves to lay bare folkish roots, as if a tendency to hoedown demonstrates some earthy authenticity. At times, it’s pure affectation. Take Old Man River’s second album, Trust, from Sydney’s Ohad Rein, which borrows a folkish sheen and plasters it across a fairly ordinary collection of pop songs. At its nadir, the record picks up a sitar and shrugs on some borrowed Indian clothing, as if mistaking “ethnic” for complexity. While plenty of other bands have recently raided the world-music closet to spice up their songmanship, here such thievery feels more contrived than exotic and fails to disguise an inescapable blandness at the record’s heart. By contrast, fellow Sydneysiders the Bon Scotts draw on a range of unusual and, yes, folkish influences to craft their genuinely engaging debut Oddernity. There’s a touch of the sea-shanties here but, more importantly,

there’s the sense of a band enjoying themselves with a diverse toolbox. At its best, Oddernity recalls the excitement and unpredictability of Arcade Fire’s Funeral and, occasionally, even outstrips that group’s more recent efforts. Gloomy Mancunians I Am Kloot have been plying their brand of urban folk for the best part of a decade now, but their latest release may just be their strongest. Produced by Elbow’s Guy Garvey, Sky at Night is a lush, layered affair, with nary a banjo in sight. These are songs that are careworn, booze-sodden and cigarette-scarred. If they deserve the folk tag, it’s for the lived-in stories they share of recognisably ordinary people, the sort that might populate a Ken Loach film. Radiation is a slow-burn epic lifted by soaring strings, while Proof is a fragile and beautiful thing, rattling around a faltering relationship with a determined, unbroken joy. There’s little here that will haunt the airwaves but plenty to possess a small, treasured corner of your soul.

TV THE LIBRARIANS \ ABC1, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 8.30PM I have to confess to missing the point of this series on its first showing. The performances seemed stagey, the setting artificial and Robyn Butler’s Frances was an unappealing character, played with uncomfortable precision. Three years on, Frances has become a classic comic creation, embodying a particularly suburban blend of conservatism and resentment, even if the supporting cast continue to channel the “overact until somebody laughs” school of comedy. The jokes may swing wildly between social awkwardness and banana-skin slapstick, but somehow it works. While Kath & Kim mined a rich vein of suburban daftness, Butler instead works a refreshingly dark and bitter streak. She’s also given us one of the most realistic small-screen portrayals of multicultural Melbourne, representing the diversity of our suburbs far more truthfully than, say, the whitewashed Offspring.

FILM LET ME IN If the thought of another vampire flick is enough to have you reaching for your crucifix, fear not. This gripping, enjoyable remake of Swedish film Let The Right One In has neither sexy Southern gentlemen with perfect hair nor any nonsensical sparkling in the sunlight. Having a miserable time at school, 12-year-old Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) forms an intense friendship with Abby (Chloe Moretz), the similarly misfitted girl from next door. Not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, it takes Owen most of the film to work out Abby can’t go out during the daytime and has a tendency to eat the neighbours. Still, at that age you’ll forgive a lot in a girlfriend for the promise of a snog. It’s beholden on a reviewer to point out the ways in which an American remake falls short, but here there’s only one – it feels largely unnecessary. Certainly, Matt Reeve’s direction is tight – a tense sequence midfilm contains one of the best cinematic car crashes to date – and his script streamlines the original, adding a detective character to help us cut quickly to the plot. However, he finds it hard to break away from the powerful imagery of the original, replaying key sequences with the sparest of flourishes. As a result, it’s easy to admire the artistry but difficult to avoid wishing it had been used on something more original.

DVD THE KILLING \ VOLUME 1 AND 2 (SBS VIDEO)

TOP PICK

Both volumes of this superb Danish crime series have now found their way onto DVD, just in time to salve any disappointment in the latest cinema instalment of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy. Both are Scandinavian, and couched in a similar wintry grandeur, but The Killing’s strength is its careful, honest portrayal of the aftermath of the rape and murder of a young female student. Heroine detective Sarah Lund, with her gift for quiet observation, takes a softer path than Lisbeth Salander, content to let her partner blunder in forcefully while she keeps her eye on the villains. Most notable, however, is the way the series allows us to observe the investigation from the points of view of all concerned. When the victim’s mother glimpses Polaroid snaps pinned to the police station wall, we remember a crime is about the victim as much as the perpetrator. Sprawled across 20 episodes, this is an epic, endlessly surprising story, and one that earns every minute of its considerable screen time. \

At this year’s Melbourne Festival, FinucAne & SMith’S cArnivAl oF MySterieS (runs until October 21, fortyfivedownstairs theatre) offers dancing of a more salacious kind as part of a unique assortment of 30 different artists. there’s The Burlesque Hour, jazz and blues, poetry and playwrights, acrobats and circus acts, painters and photographers and a sometimes surprising selection of food. Showcasing the wide variety on offer at this year’s festival, it’s an impressive point of entry for those who love art but don’t know much about what they like. \ Myke BArtlett

Moira Finucane has carved a career out of cavorting on stage clad in more charisma than clothing – and HARI RAJ somehow manages to make her blush.

hat is burlesque? It’s a question with answers like the heads of a hydra; facets within multiplying facets, a stew of genres and ideas strained through the various viewpoints of its practitioners. There are umpteen different answers, and they are all correct. Identifying the particular flavour of Moira Finucane’s brand of burlesque is an even more difficult proposition. Her performances compel and repel, poised exquisitely at the equinox between the two; they’re all sex and salt and sultry satire. “Labels are a tricky thing. I think of burlesque as a sensibility, not an artform. It’s a very cheeky – and at its best, edgy and entertaining – way of looking at society and who we are,” Finucane says. “The word first started being used in the 1600s, and what it meant was an exaggeration, a mockery, a parody, a grotesquery. All burlesques were political; they all poked fun at society’s mores, status quo and morality.” She disavows what she calls the “bump and grind, retro-American 1940s and ’50s stuff”, instead rattling off an impressive list of influences – everything from fairy stories and horror films with detours into German cabaret and Japanese theatre. The end result shares the qualities that were required when Finucane began performing, almost two decades ago, in the bowels of Melbourne’s underground performance scene. There is a weirdness and wildness that evolved out of necessity: “The act could go on at 3am and capture your attention, no matter how much you’d had to drink. “We called our show The Burlesque Hour because we had nothing else to call it. And, of course, the label stuck, and I ended up in an endless conversation with people saying it was nothing like burlesque, hoisted on my own petard – where were the fishnets?” But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves here. With so much of Finucane’s life shining through in her work, a bit of retrospection is in order.

m

oira Finucane is lanky, just a shade under six feet tall. She’s 46, and when she’s not busy contorting her face into every sort of grimace, she is possessed of a certain handsome beauty. She speaks with her entire body – there are cartoons less animated. But despite this bristling energy, Finucane has the disarming propensity to sit back and consider each question as it is put to her, reviewing her life through each newly established set of parameters. She’s a Perth girl, via a family sojourn in the US where her father studied medicine via a Harvard scholarship, who fell in love with Melbourne at the end of biennial family trips across the Nullarbor that went from parched desert to the lush greenery of the Dandenongs. At university, Finucane rather incongruously studied environmental science. By 1985, at the age of 20, Finucane was representing Australia in a United Nations youth and environment conference, and a life in the theatre was the furthest thing from her mind. “I wasn’t even in any of the school plays or anything! I was a passionate youngster and I wanted to save the world,” she says. After moving to Melbourne, Finucane settled into a job as a national campaigner for the Wilderness Society, working 100-hour weeks. She describes the experience as being “in the middle of a really fast political table-tennis game” – but there were some lessons being learnt that would serve her well in the future. “Politics is really about performing,” she says. “You have to have passion. A good performer and a good politician will have two things in common; they have to be able to put it out there, and they have to believe in what they’re doing.” Maybe the hours were taking their toll, or maybe some of that idealism was finally beginning to wear


thin. Whatever the case, when an acquaintance remarked that she was looking a bit downtrodden and a change of direction was mooted, Finucane’s reaction was spontaneous: “I’m going to be to an actress.” She was living in just the sort of share house in Fitzroy where you would expect to have a theatre director for a housemate, and won the lead in an upcoming play. It was Dorothy Hewett’s The Chapel Perilous, which was, inevitably, about a young woman who is involved in politics and becomes thoroughly disillusioned. “A review said that I had such a good insolent swagger – and then it went on to say that instead of being a true heroine, I behaved more like a schoolgirl slut. I was so outraged!” Finucane recalls. She then tried her hand at directing her housemate in a play, which garnered the attention of the award-winning playwright and actor Eva Johnson. But the stars were hardly falling into place: “It didn’t continue. After that followed many years of poverty and struggle.” Her theatre involvement came in a spurt, in 1991; two years later, Finucane was performing her first solo show, and creating her own characters would soon follow. “I think that when I wanted to be an actress, I saw myself playing other people’s stuff. But I’m a very opinionated individual who wants to create my own work. I have always wanted to converse directly with audiences. I don’t want to do something they watch, I want to create a world for them to be in,” Finucane says. This immersive aesthetic has come to characterise her work. Among the satin tablecloths and Chinese lanterns, you’ll find things such as fortune-telling games, colouring-in competitions and riddles on tables. But now things get really interesting. Finucane embarks on an epic tangent, first discussing her avid devotion to Star Trek, and pointing out that science fiction helps widen the realm of possibility by making humanity question how the fantastic can be achieved. She then starts discussing neural plasticity, the relatively new scientific stance that the brain and its pathways are malleable, pointing out that this is similar to what she attempts with her work. “Art can seduce people – not a trickery, but a real seduction – into considering what is possible and what is true,” Finucane says. “I have this belief that art can change culture and change lives. It often doesn’t, but I think when people see something that is ahead of its time or out of its time there is a possibility that it changes the way their brain sees possibilities forever.” Ambitious, to be sure – and it’s the perfect time to ask if the tag of burlesque affects the composition of her audience. In short, do people come for the skin and miss the substance? “Absolutely,” is the forthright answer, “but it doesn’t matter what they come for, they stay for something else.” By way of explanation, Finucane launches into an anecdote about The Burlesque Hour’s very first performance. A group of businessmen had booked a table right at the front, crystallising of some of the fears she was wrestling with – would she be exploited? Would it be a triumph of titillation over theatre? As it turns out, they were most interested in a piece Finucane calls Victoriana, in which she remains clothed the entire time as part of an ode to repressed desire. “It’s not that they didn’t love the nude ladies and the gorgeousness – but I don’t think it’s possible to come and see the work just to have a perv. It’s like comparing an action-adventure film to a bizarre Pedro Almodovar film. They’re different kettles of fish,” she says. “As an artist, the only way you can create political or transgressive work is to continue to interrogate it. You can’t just say it’s radical to take my clothes off – you have to keep on questioning it. You may never find the answers, but you will find more and more interesting angles on what you’re trying to say.” Finucane has a rather analytical side to her

personality – surely there are few artistes who can cast as dispassionate an eye on their passions. But when it comes to discussing Jackie Smith, her partner, collaborator and director, Finucane is aglow; and she immediately dismisses the notion that working and living with someone can get claustrophobic. “No. It’s kind of spooky. There’s something wrong with us. I’m extremely lucky. When I met Jackie, it was like Shirley Valentine when she discovers what it’s like to be free,” she says, arms aloft. The two had first come into contact when Finucane tried to put her first show in a series of short works Smith was showing at the Fringe festival. She got fobbed off, but later found out this was due to Smith’s extreme shyness. But years later, they both ended up on a committee, and the stage was set. “It was 1994, she started talking about Jane Austen and I was just completely fascinated. I haven’t stopped being fascinated.”

A

t the time, however, Finucane was in a relationship – and, wonder of wonders, this woman who is so open about practically everything starts to blush profusely as the recalls the start of her relationship. “We had a bit of a rocky beginning at the time. I was living with my boyfriend, so things were fairly hectic,” Finucane says, displaying a knack for understatement that is quite incongruous with her stage personae. “He is a very nice person, so he was very generous, but it was one of the less graceful parts of my life.” Finucane and Smith are collaborating on another project, possibly their finest – blonde, bubbly twins called Margaret and Eleanor. Finucane is tight-lipped about the circumstances of their arrival, despite repeated exhortations – “All I can tell you is that it’s a miracle” – but she carried them, and was back on stage when they were 11½ weeks old. “I wasn’t even sure if I could continue to afford being an artist. It’s not what you might call a financially viable choice. And with twins, where is the money coming from? I didn’t know what it would do to my body

or my bank balance. But it has made me a lot more courageous,” she says of motherhood. The twins – now two years old – have had an amazing life, their household populated by a rotating cast of eclectic characters. There’s been everyone from hula-hoop and Bollywood dancers to Ethiopian circus stars. And so, growing up so steeped in performing, would Finucane like to see them follow in her footsteps? “I don’t think any parent would wish theatre on their children – and yet I’ve got so much joy from it,” she says. “It’s a very insecure lifestyle, so unless you’re a person that adores adrenalin as something that feeds you rather than something that drives you into an early grave, it’s not a good idea.” Finucane’s work has seen her travel the world, with some of the circumstances of her shows almost as bizarre as their content. In Japan, she has performed in the middle of an abandoned amusement park. She has seen people pack into Hungarian venues like beautifully dressed sardines, and she has had a Beijing artist grab her and yell “Your work is liberation!” She is part of a subculture that is far removed from the mainstream. But with the well-documented burlesque revival in full flight, has she ever felt that her work might become too popular and lose its edge? Her answer, like many of those that precede it in this interview, is refreshing. “Does something lose its value when it moves outside a niche? I don’t believe it does. If indie music is only precious because only a few die-hards or the cognoscenti know about it, then the value is about who doesn’t know about it, it’s not about the music,” she says. “So even though my work isn’t very populist, I love a populist approach. I don’t want to perform for a clique of my ex-lovers and best friends. I’m interested in this work going to as many people as possible. “When people take transgressive work to mainstream audiences, they feel this enormous pressure to dumb it down. But I would never do that. I don’t second-guess the audience. I’ll take care of them, and then they can decide what they can handle.” \

Review\ melbouRne festival

Let MYKE BARTLETT guide you through some of the Melbourne Festival’s highlights.

Certainly, part of the joy of any festival is debating the thin lines between intrigue and bafflement, experimentation and self-indulgence, and art and, well, pretentious junk. Happily, the program for this year offers plenty of space for debate, alongside some surefire crowd-pleasers such as the star-filled music extravaganza SeveN SoNgS to leAve BehiNd (Saturday, October 23, Sidney Myer Music Bowl). Tickets for the big acts can tend to disappear before they’ve even been released, but this year’s festival is big enough and broad enough to hold back a few secrets. Listen carefully, and we’ll whisper them in your ear.

There’s a mentally retarded white tiger, a Palestinian girl undergoing hymenoplasty and a Braille edition of Playboy. Radioactive capsules glow blue from the bottom of a deep pool of water, and confiscated fruit rots on a desk at JFK airport. This collection of odd and rarely photographed items makes up one of the standout pieces at this year’s Melbourne Festival. The exhibition AN AmericAN iNdex of the hiddeN ANd UNfAmiliAr (Thursday, October 14 to Sunday, December 12), by US photographic artist Taryn Simon, contains a cornucopia of strange snapshots from her country’s most inaccessible places, documenting the sort of people, places and events most of us have never thought about or, perhaps, have never wanted to consider.

For a start, there’s AN ANthology of optimiSm (Wednesday, October 20 to Saturday, October 23, the Arts Centre), a lecture-performance in which a committed pessimist and dedicated optimist debate whether there’s anything left to be cheerful about in an age of global warming and terrorism. Our two hosts have spent the last year touring the world with the show, asking international luminaries to provide reasons for hope – reasons that can include snippets of movies, songs, photos and other objects that might let in a little light. The Melbourne show features contributions from notable Australians and promises to be an entertaining, engaging and, crucially, uplifting evening at the theatre. Equally engaging, the Beckett trilogy (Thursday, October 14 to Sunday, October 17, the Arts Centre) is a solo performance from Irish theatre company Gare St Lazare Players, adapting three of Samuel Beckett’s novels into one mammoth performance. Actor Conor Lovett has a long history of interpreting Beckett’s work for modern audiences, having worked on almost 20 productions to date, and here reinforces his reputation for making the material accessible and fresh, without sacrificing the author’s unique – and often oblique – take on the world.

Jack charles V the crOwn (Tuesday, October 12 to Sunday, October 17, the Arts Centre) is a local production, starring Aboriginal elder and actor Jack Charles in a one-man retelling of his more-than-slightly colourful life story. Variously an actor, poet, thief and drug addict, Charles has packed enough into his 60-odd years to fill a dozen hefty volumes, his show taking us on an entertaining journey through the full spectrum of human experience from despair to triumph, and all told with a great sense of fun. While such luminaries as Eva Peron and Shane Warne have had successful musicals devoted to them, Charles Darwin has hitherto gone tragically uncelebrated in song. tOmOrrOw in a Year (Wednesday, October 20 to Saturday, October 23, the Arts Centre) aims to put this right, being an electro-opera dedicated to the godfather of evolutionary theory. In honour of the 150th anniversary of The Origin of Species, an ensemble of actors, singers and dancers will perform to an unconventional score from Swedish pop duo the Knife. It promises to be an intriguing and challenging take on the operatic genre.

Another theatre piece, Opening night (Wednesday, October 20 to Saturday, October 23, the Arts Centre), blends live performance with television cameras, simulcasting the action on screens built into a stage that seats the audience very much in the middle of things. Telling the tale of an ageing actress cracking up on the eve of a play’s opening night, this Dutch production uses its clever set to push at the boundaries between actors and audience, reality and performance.

There’s also no shortage of energy in Vertical rOad (Tuesday, October 19 to Saturday, October 23, The CUB Malthouse), a dance piece drawing on influences from a range of cultures and disciplines, and soundtracked by electro composer Nitin Sawhney. Choreographer Akram Khan has a background in both classical Indian and contemporary dance, his work exploring the boundaries between the traditional and the new, the Eastern and the Western. In this world-premiere performance, he probes myths about the afterlife, his cast dancing their way to heaven – wherever or whatever that might be.

REVIEW\ TRAVEL

Whether you are looking for a romantic interlude or a chance to recharge your batteries, CORRIE PERKIN and PETER WILMOTH (and partners) have found six great places to pamper yourself and your loved one.

THE PERFECT GETAWAY THE WESTIN MELBOURNE

Dinner at Maze, looking out over Whiteman Street and the city beyond, was superb. Then to the room. It’s beautifully appointed, with stylish couches, a desk and a luxurious bathroom with a sliding partition door. More champagne has been left for us – because we needed it – and a welcome note. A nice touch. In the morning it’s a choice between a swim in the pool on level 27 or an extended breakfast back at 28, which is the way we went. (The spa retreat Isika is on level 27, and a great option for a bit of pampering). Crown Metropol is very near the top of the list if you’re hoping to romantically connect or reconnect. PW

Location, location. Sure, stylish rooms, big beds, fluff y bathrobes and spacious bathrooms help. But when it comes to a night in a downtown city hotel, surely there is no better-situated establishment than The Westin. The hotel abuts what used to be City Square. Enter its grand art deco-inspired foyer and you have a view of Swanston Street and the Manchester Unity Building beyond. Better still, DJs, Myer and all your favourite city laneway shops are only a minute’s walk, making it possible to shop, return to your hotel room, recover with a pot of tea in the foyer café, then shop again. A few weeks ago The Westin celebrated its 10th birthday. To mark this, management has come up with some inventive and value-for-money packages. The $315 per room 10th Birthday Celebration Package, for example, applies to most nights until October 15 and includes accommodation, buffet breakfast in the Allegro Restaurant, 10 per cent discount on hotel food and drinks and a choice of five extras, including a pair of Westin bath towels and late checkout. We went for the $365 a night Replenish Package, which includes a cocktail for two in the hotel’s Martini Bar (we had three each), valet parking, the Allegro breakfast and access to the Wellness Centre. Unfortunately we missed the wellness opportunity due to our over-excitement in the Martini Bar, but dinner in the Allegro Restaurant was a worthy substitute. CP

MIDDLE PARK HOTEL

First, the downside. Our first-floor room overlooked Canterbury Road, one of the bayside area’s busiest thoroughfares. Second, our window was almost directly in line with the Canterbury Road streetlights. Both these factors wouldn’t have mattered if there was adequate sound insulation and blackened curtains or blinds. Imagine our surprise (which later became extreme anguish) when we turned off the bedside lamps and our room was lit up like a Christmas tree on speed. White timber shutters? They look pretty and certainly suit the charm of this elegant Victorian building. But can they keep the light out? Hardly. The traffic noise, meanwhile, was constant until about 1am, then resumed

» 205 Collins Street, Melbourne, 9635 2222 www.westin.com.au

about 5.30am. But to be fair, the hotel had only been opened a few days after months of extensive renovations and we’re sure these problems have now been addressed. The upside is: the Middle Park Hotel has a warm, guesthouse feel about it. If you and your partner are looking for a getaway that’s not expensive, is within a tram stop of Fitzroy Street, St Kilda and Albert Park village and a brisk 10-minute walk to the beach, then this is the one for you. The rooms are smaller than you’d find in a modern CBD hotel but they have state-of-the-art amenities and inventive and well-stocked mini-bars. A highlight of the hotel is its restaurant. The meat-oriented menu, with its Victorian produce, offers some fantastic choices and the wine list is thoughtfully constructed. Dinner here is a must, as is breakfast, which features one of the best porridge-and-rhubarb combos we’ve ever tasted. CP

THE PRINCE

When was the exact moment at The Prince that I decided I would not have wanted to be anywhere else in the world? Was it opening the window and looking down Beaconsfield Parade and the life below on Fitzroy Street? Was it pretending we were Maxwell Smart and 99 and putting on white bathrobes? Was it lying around on the settee after a superb meal at Circa, The Prince?

Crown’s new hotel screams romantic. It’s virtually impossible not to get in touch with your inner Barry White five minutes after walking in the door and being dazzled by a nine-metre wall painting by Noel Skrzypczak and some very slick interior design. Some places are just sexy to be in. This is one. How can that feeling arrive in five minutes? Maybe it’s the anticipation of a night of exploration – a new hotel, a new restaurant (Gordon Ramsay’s Maze) and time to talk about life with great wine and jaw-dropping views. The moment you arrive you are struck by the scale of the foyer and how stylishly it has been decorated. A sweeping staircase leads up to Maze. A tip: make sure you go on all the rides at the Metropol. If you can make it before dusk, have a glass of champagne at 28, the hotel’s lounge and “sky bar” on level 28 – a huge area with staggering views of the city.

THE ADELPHI

When it opened in the early 1990s, The Adelphi was one of the CBD’s first boutique hotels. It caused quite a stir with its cool design and art-savvy interiors, and its restaurant and bar quickly became the places to meet on a Thursday or Friday night. But The Adelphi’s most talked-about feature was – and still is – the narrow swimming pool nine storeys high that overhangs Flinders Lane and has a transparent bottom. It was too cold to swim, so for us the highlight was our room, known as the executive suite. The spacious living area features sofas, a table and a long desk that runs the length of one wall – perfect for the business executive. A small kitchen/bar fridge area and a guest’s powder room lead to the bedroom with its sprawling king-sized bed and fabulous bathroom. At The Adelphi, your bathroom is an oasis. Natural soap products, plenty of fluff y white towels, a large

(HEMERA / THINKSTOCK)

It could have been all these moments rolled into one glorious experience. The Prince is escapism at its most effective. Walk off Acland Street and immediately you submit yourself to The Prince’s shadowy charm. The room is a delight – wooden boards and stylish carpets and a sumptuous lounge from which to watch TV. The bathroom features a deep egg-shaped bath hidden from the main room only by a lovely piece of hanging fabric. You can shout yourself a massage or treatment at the Aurora Spa Retreat. Grab a booking for the relaunched Circa, The Prince, with its elegant egg-shaped tables, wall of fresh herbs and urbane, funky vibe. There’s a writing desk, too, if you want to jot a note to your lover. But if there’s something romantic to say, it’s easier to whisper. For us, time seemed to stand still, which gave the illusion that our night here would last forever. It was such an evocative experience, for us anyway, that maybe it will. PW

shower and separate, deep bath, two sinks and two bathrobes invite you to spend hours luxuriating, coiffing, preening and pampering. Like The Westin, The Adelphi is ideally located but, because of its size, it feels more intimate and relaxed. We highly recommend the hotel’s breakfast, which features a range of Phillippa’s Bakery products, a variety of cooked dishes, superb teas and coffee and all of the day’s newspapers. CP

DO NOT DISTURB CELEBRITIES’ CHOICE MICHAEL VEITCH

We’d had, well, let’s just say a misunderstanding, but a serious one, and some serious gesture – on my part – was required. I like little hotels, and up at the top of Flinders Street, The Lindrum is one of Melbourne’s best. It’s cosy, discreet, even a little coy. I asked the cocktail waiter for a champagne recommendation – classy but not showy. He came through in spades. We spent the evening sipping and flopping around on sweet-smelling linen. She was impressed. And I was forgiven.

» 187 Flinders Lane, Melbourne. 8080 8888 www.adelphi.com.au

THE ROYCE

Sometimes you can be made to feel special with the smallest gestures. So when the receptionist asked for my keys so they could valet park my dust-encrusted family wagon, I’m instantly in another zone. We’ve had a romantic day already – lunch at MoVida and a long walk down Flinders Lane – and by 4pm we’re ready to laze around the room at The Royce with the papers before redeeming our drinks voucher for a champagne, which we enjoyed in the spa. Sufficiently mellow, we spent the early evening in a delicious haze, knowing dinner was downstairs in the hotel’s signature restaurant, Dish, and all we had to do was bling up and walk down. The room was comfortable and we liked the banquette that ran along the window looking onto St Kilda Road. It was to here that we retired for dessert wine and long chats after a good dinner. The area is good for exploring – the Botanic Gardens are just up the road, as is the little shopping centre at the corner of Domain Road and Park Street. In the morning it’s a very good buffet breakfast back at Dish, where, over Bircher muesli, sourdough toast and strong lattes, we talked about life and journeys and pleasures, such as the realisation that if you are with the right person, a night away can be magical. PW \

DAVID REYNE

A romantic getaway only succeeds if the hotel masters the atmosphere of two rooms. The bedroom must drip with luxury, opulence and sturdy furnishings. The king-sized bed at the Mansion Hotel, Werribee, entices the guest to cavort. The bathroom must soothe and relax. The Mansion offers enough space beneath the shower for guests to lather together and the kind of sensual lighting that casts flattering shadows. TOTTIE GOLDSMITH

It was winter in the late ’70s and my boyfriend Peter had heard of this cute place called Hill Cottage in Bellbrae, near Torquay. There was a vegie garden, a trout farm and a cottage. It had a barbecue, one bedroom, a bathroom and a lounge with an open fireplace. In the fridge were fresh eggs, bacon, a plucked and gutted chook, and a couple of sharp knives. We got the fire going and Peter went fishing. All I can say is, thank God for the chicken. We dragged our mattress in from the bedroom, ate chicken and vegies in bed and had one of the most fun and memorable nights ever.

LUXE KING BEDROOM AT CROWN METROPOLE

THE PRINCE

The dim glow of the lamp and the heady smell of incense transformed my room at the Raging Possum Motor Inn into an oriental tent. We’d met at the truck stop just before Euroa. I drew Barry craftily into a conversation, “Is that your Kenworth?” “Sure is, cara mia, giz a kiz then.” I’m a sucker for Spanish and 600-hp trucks. At 11pm he tapped on my door and handed over strawberries and champagne. He’d driven 150 kilometres to get there. That’s romantic! \

here the hell is spring? It’s early October, there hasn’t been a single sea breeze and the sun won’t shine. The new kites have already arrived, the stand-up paddle board will be here next week and the scuba tanks are back in test. The snow is there, but what’s there is certainly not worth getting excited about. I’ve read all about new hikes, mountain bike rides and found a few new secret waves to surf. But the sun won’t shine, the water won’t go above 12 degrees. I’m trapped in a garage bashing out yarns and looking at a three-month-old wet wetsuit that looks and smells like it will soon be alive or provide a bountiful harvest of mushrooms. I’ve had enough. I’m uprooting the family and we are migrating to South America. My wife doesn’t know it yet but I’m sure she’ll be sweet. My plan is to woo her with salsa dancing, a few caipirinhas (a Brazilian cocktail), the promise of sunshine and hours of rummaging through the cultural delights of the Incas. Easy! There’s no doubt she will do her own research and find that I want to see South American football and eat giant steaks. But I’ll be in bigger trouble when she finds out that desert, snow-covered mountains, the biggest river in the world, and beaches

and coral reefs, wind and waves are within a stone’s throw of each other. Ian Mackinnon called to tell me all about South America this week and I was packed and ready to go in an instant. Ian has a tough job; he is the regional sales director for Abercrombie & Kent in South America and sells the continent to the rest of the world. After going to Patagonia for a holiday for four days with friends and chatting to a local guide, he decided to ditch his job in international commerce in Santiago and become a tour guide in Torres del Paine National Park. He was supposed to spend a full year in Santiago (Chile’s capital) in international commerce and then come to Australia to work in finance, but visited Australia only because of his career change. His polite English voice instantly took me to the continent and I found that my mind had drifted into a subconscious South American fantasy holiday. Ian and I were in South America, galloping horses into a Patagonian sunset to remote station Estancia Cerro Guido, to drink Austral (the local beer) with Argentinean and Chilean cowboys before we headed north to the driest desert on earth and to the summits of snow-capped volcanoes dominating the skyline above Bolvia. The horse is a way of life in Patagonia and

still constitutes a major mode of transport on many isolated estancias, which is Chilean for station, with station managers living out months of harsh winter often with only a horse and a few dogs for company. “They help with work, getting around and the riding possibilities are endless,� Ian said. “I’ll never forget riding across endless pampas (grasslands) covered in snow with the mountains in the distance and not

another soul for miles around.� Our next stop in this virtual holiday was high up in the Peruvian Andes, travelling overland past deserted Incan ruins before hiking five days around the remote Cordillera Huayhuash range, where the film Touching the Void was set. We set out on a mini-adventure waved off by smiling Andean faces to cross valleys and traverse passes over 5000 metres. After hiking the Andes we left for Peru to surf Chicama, arguably the best left-hand wave in the world, where you can ride a single wave for two kilometres. “In Lima, where I lived for two years, I have friends who will surf before going to work for the day,� he said. Pervian surfer Sofia Mulanovich is ranked No.4 in the world. Then we were deep down the Amazon River for a week of exploring hidden lakes full of caiman and piranhas and meeting the locals on the banks of one of the world’s longest rivers. “Leaving Iquitos (the world’s largest city inaccessible by road) for a trip down the lakes takes you into a world where mother nature is queen and supreme ruler, the constant background noise reminds you that you’re never alone, while a walk along canopy walkways reveals the scale of the earth’s lungs,� Ian said. With that final word from Ian, the interview was over and I was snapped back to reality. Time to pick the mushrooms or wash them out. \ george@kitemag.com.au

Review\ ReaRview KEVIN NORBURY tracks down Sir Robert Menzies’ prime ministerial transport.

J

ohn Smyth fondly remembers the day a couple of years back when he drove to Trentham, near Daylesford, to look at an old black Buick he’d heard had once been the official prime ministerial set of wheels used by Sir Robert Menzies. What he saw that day was this majestic black limo with lots of chrome and an elaborate chrome grille sitting in a warehouse under years of accumulated dust and grime. “It wasn’t covered, which was a shame,” says John. “But you could just see it was a beautiful car.” He had seen it advertised and, from what he says, had agonised over whether to buy it. “I put it off and put it off for a fortnight, then rang,” he says. Fortunately, the old Menzies Buick was still in the warehouse gathering dust. As soon as he saw the car he knew he had to have it. “I thought, ‘This is the one I’ve been looking for’,” he says, eyes sparkling. The seller was Travis Hughes, who was the son of Bill Hughes (no, not Australia’s seventh PM). This Bill Hughes just happened to be Menzies’ driver when his regular chauffeur was off sick. As a result, Travis knew all about the car and its history, so John threw caution to the wind, made an offer on the spot, and took the car back to Ballarat. In his days behind the plough, John Smyth was a designer and builder of exhibition stands. But he has always been interested in cars. “I’ve always had vintage and classic cars,” he says. “I’ve had Packards, I’ve had a Rolls.” You only have to look around the walls of his Ballarat home: lots of framed pictures of cars, even in the toilet. Then he switched to steam engines. He doesn’t know why. “It’s just a bug you catch one day and you think I’ll have a bit of a change.” In semi-retirement, he runs a storage facility on the edge of town. Probably just as well. Where else would he find the space for his big steam traction engine, his 1950s and ’60s caravans, his 1966 Pontiac, not forgetting that giant 1968 American Oshkosh truck that practically fills half of one storage lock-up on its own. But the Menzies Buick isn’t kept there. It has its own shed, right behind the house, where he can look at it every day and do whatever needs doing. The plan is to restore the car to its pre-prime ministerial best. He has already started work on that. He’s refitted the whitewall tyres deemed “too lairy” for a government fleet car back in the 1960s, but thinks he might have to look in the US to find the right chrome strips for the louvres on the car’s rear flanks. The black paintwork on the bonnet, still with its Menzies’ flag holder, is badly pitted, but that will be stripped back and resprayed in good time. “It’s not in too bad a nick,” John

On the front bench says, clearly proud of the car just as it is. It’s what’s under that bonnet that counts, and under there rumbles a thumping 361-cubic inch (5.9-litre) V8 that develops 300 horsepower (223 kW). “A lot of work had to be done on the engine to get it going,” he says. It’s hooked up to a three-speed “Dynaflow” automatic transmission. But unlike some 1950s autos, the Menzies Buick is no slug. “You can’t ever feel the gear change.” For a car that’s more than 50 years old and basically original, what it hasn’t got is hardly worth noting. It’s a pillarless four-door with electric windows, and with not one but two dip switches on the floor, one to dim the headlights, the other to change the stations on its pushbutton “Wonder Bar” valve radio. Push the “Wonder Bar” and the old wireless searches the airwaves for the best signal. The Buick has a six-way electric front bench seat, which also can be heated. This might explain why Sir Robert always liked to sit in the front with his driver. Except the story goes that, being the big man that he was, when he got in the car he frequently banged his knee on the pointy end of the dashboard under the wraparound windscreen, and complained bitterly each time.

in 1958, three Buick Limited sedans, all exactly the same, all painted silver and all seven inches longer than the standard Buick, were built in Canada especially for the Australian government’s Canadian embassy. The three were right-hand-drive cars because at that time Canadians drove on the left. in 1960, when Canada switched to the right-hand side of the road, as in the uS, the three Buicks were shipped to Australia. on arrival they were sent to Joel’s repair shop in Sydney. All were stripped down and some of the trimmings removed, such as the whitewall tyres and the chrome decoration on the back mudguard louvres, regarded as “too lairy”, the cars were resprayed black and went into the Commonwealth fleet. As one of the Buicks had done only 5000 miles (the two others had done a lot more), it was set aside for the PM of the day, Sir robert Menzies.

He once told Bill Hughes, probably after hitting his knee for the umpteenth time, “I hate this car.” Maybe he threatened to get out because, according to Travis, his father had quipped, “It would be a long way to walk, sir.” There are numerous stories about Menzies and his cars. The Buick Club of NSW says he was originally chauffeured around in a 1947 Buick, which was replaced by the Buick Limited, but he didn’t like it. He had always wanted a Bentley, and eventually got this magnificent 2.5-tonne S3. The ’58 Buick then became Sir John “Black Jack” McEwen’s car for a time when he was leader of the Country Party. “It’s a lovely car to drive,” John says, which, as far as he is concerned, is what’s important. “It holds the road really well. It’s the nicest car I’ve ever driven … and I’ve had a few cars. The boot’s big enough to hold a motor mower and two 44-gallon drums (even bigger, obviously, than the Leyland P76’s claim to fame).” According to John, Travis Hughes told him that his grandfather, who bought and sold disused Commonwealth cars, had bought it at the Tottenham auctions and privately registered it for the one and only time in 1967, presumably with plans to use it himself. That sticker is still on the windscreen. After that he put the car in storage, and that’s where it stayed for 40 years. Only recently, after getting the car back on the road, John drove it to Bendigo, eager to show it off at the Buick Nationals, but like Menzies, the old car had to score a point and threw a wobbly in the gearbox. “On the way home we finished the trip on a tilt truck,” says John, grinning. “It’s definitely a work in progress and progress is slow sometimes.” Now he’s waiting for the tilt truck to return to have fixed whatever ails the Buick. He’s not complaining. “It’s a lovely car, it’s lovely to drive, lovely and smooth. It’s like riding in a plate of blancmange, whatever that would feel like,” he says with a chuckle. \ norbsu@gmail.com

REVIEW\ REFLECTIONS

Pressure a good thing, up to a point

(BANANASTOCK / THINKSTOCK)

Western doctors are now much more comfortable recommending traditional Chinese medicine, writes DR MALCOLM CLARK.

years ago, a FIVE THOUSAND  Chinese warrior returned from battle with a nasty arrow wound

near his left knee. He had always complained to his local doctor about a rumbling irritable bowel, but noticed the day after the arrow had been pulled out his symptoms mysteriously disappeared. This was the beginning of acupuncture ... or so the story goes. Over the centuries, traditional Chinese medicine doctors noticed that certain maladies caused specific areas on the body to become tender. If these tender spots were vigorously massaged (acupressure), or a fine needle pushed into the tender spot, often the symptoms would become less severe, or sometimes go away completely. Some spots were noticed to be more effective than others for certain sorts of problems, so a system of treating illness with needles was developed. Chinese herbal medicine developed around the same time, as did using diet to treat medical problems. Understanding the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine takes many years of training. The first step is to turn away from scientific Western medicine for a while and to learn to look at things in other ways. Examination is the same, just without blood tests and X-rays. Feeling for tender points, examining the hands, feet, the ears, looking for coating of the tongue, as well as feeling for subtle variations in wrist pulses. Symptoms also mean different things: heat, cold, dampness, imbalance and phlegm. Restoring order and balance to the meridians of the body’s organ system is the aim of treatment, restoring the balance of yin and yang, and getting your qi (vital energy) moving properly again. Tender points are just as important in Western medicine, and sometimes just as mysterious. In fibromyalgia, a condition often associated with chronic fatigue syndrome, the diagnosis is confirmed by discovering certain tender points around the neck, upper back and buttocks. We really don’t know why these points become tender, or how the condition develops, but acupuncture can be helpful. Even plain old appendicitis can be a little mysterious. Last century a famous American surgeon, Dr Charles McBurney, noticed that people who have appendicitis usually develop a tender spot an inch to the right and below the belly button, thereafter known as McBurney’s point. You would assume the infected appendix would always be under the tender spot, but sometimes at operation it’s found some distance away, even down near the hip bone, on the other side of the abdomen. There is still much controversy about how acupuncture works. Different theories abound, each going in and out of fashion, but so far there is little to explain how sticking a needle into someone, or using a low-energy laser, helps them get better. Of course, sceptics are of the opinion that it’s all in the mind. If you believe it will work, you just might get better, and there is no more to it than that. A counter-point: acupuncture is often used to treat illness in animals. How do you explain to an unhappy dog or cat that its irritable bowel or biting problem is going to get better with trendy acupuncture? Also in China, where there is a great deal more research into the use of acupuncture, there has been a lot of good work looking at how it affects pain thresholds in animals, raising the pain threshold, and making a happier, friskier Fido or Felix. In Europe, the US and Australia there have been several peer-reviewed, quality studies showing acupuncture works well, especially for lower-back and

neck pain, arthritis and urinary tract problems. In exotic places, the men who use elephants as tractors and forklifts have used the 89 known pressure/acupuncture points on the body of their elephants to help drive them around safely and happily for more than 1000 years. They also rub and stimulate these points to keep their mighty chariots and breadwinners on the road and healthy. Acupuncturists and traditional Chinese medicine specialists claim that when an area of the body becomes damaged or diseased, nerve fibres from that area send messages back to the spinal cord, and then to the brain, to tell us there’s something going wrong. Some of those signals, when they reach the spinal cord, bounce alarm messages down along other local nerve fibres to skin and muscle, perhaps producing a tender spot. When that tender spot is stimulated with a needle, hopefully producing a non-tender, deep, aching sensation, this message heads off to the spinal cord, brain and diseased area, helping it to heal. is best known in ACUPUNCTURE Australia for treating chronic pain. Chronic lower-back pain, neck pain or cripplingly painful arthritis is probably bread and butter for most acupuncturists. It’s useful for all sorts of other things, too: fatigue, irritable bowel, allergies, morning sickness and as an energy and immune system booster for people with chronic illness such as diabetes, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. It’s actually quite good for preventing recurrent migraines and other sorts of headaches. But does it hurt? Everyone asks this question. The needles are sharp and very thin. Few people even feel the needle enter the skin and complain of a discomforting ache only when it reaches the right place. If you’re squeamish about needles, ask for a laser as most acupuncture doctors also have one or know someone who does. The laser is strong enough to stimulate the acupuncture point but not strong enough to elicit even a heat sensation on the skin. It seems to work just as well as needles for most problems. Acupuncture is simple and it works. It seems to have survived the test of time, and the more we learn about it, the more uses we find for it. It is by no means a panacea but certainly seems to help some people when other, more conventional, treatments fail. It works like a miracle in one in every 100 cases, and works very well in three out of every six. For one in six it might only work weakly, and in one in six dogs, cats, horses, elephants or humans it doesn’t work at all. But whatever the case, unlike with drugs, there are no long-term side-effects from acupuncture. \

FDA SAYS YES! 

It’s official. If you haven’t heard, acupuncture works, is totally harmless and even has the approval of the American Food and Drug Administration. The ancient art is starting to gain more credence from the scientific world as a useful treatment for a wide variety of problems. Pain, of course, is the best-researched area showing how useful acupuncture is, especially compared with other physical treatments. Migraine, vertigo, persistent sinusitis, allergies, menstrual problems and irritable bowel syndrome all have some reasonable evidence to back up the use of needles or laser for safe and effective treatment.

were simply too few people doing too many jobs under relentless pressure. Staff were treated like oranges to be juiced and tossed because the allure of media endures, though it frazzles many a young enthusiast. In recent years, I worked for a bank that offered “high-performance mind sessions” to executives. That’s corporate speak for “meditation”. It gave me hope. Now big business is offering film vouchers and belly dancing to keep staff happy. The trend towards corporate wellness programs, such as the triple-bottom-line before it, is here to stay. Wellness, it seems, now begins at school (Stephanie Alexander’s school gardens project) and at work, rather than home. And corporate wellness providers are everywhere, from entrepreneurial individuals to broad-spectrum organisations offering preventative health measures to help us yoga, meditate and work/life balance our way back to sanity. Michael Stone was well before the crest of this

Business

wave in 2003 when he founded the Holistic Services Group Australia (HSGA), and is still there in his acknowledgement that tailoring services to individual employee needs is the next challenge for this nascent industry. HSGA’s service range is extraordinary: clowning, drumming, tarot reading, iridology, office feng shui and healthy cooking (much in demand, thanks to MasterChef) beside traditional offerings of health education, corporate wellness events and stress-management and relaxation workshops. It has collated several hundred contractors around Australia to service about 500 clients in seven years. Organisational psychologist Joanne Abbey, of Grow Corporate Wellbeing, echoes Stone’s view about personalising services. Companies need to deliver what employees truly value. While massage at your desk is great, a supportive environment that cultivates healthy work relationships is better. “Culture is the main obstacle to improving well-being at work. The first step in a change program is to accurately identify what well-being means to employees

… from there, initiatives can be targeted and results can be quickly measured,” says Abbey, who is researching well-being in the private sector. “Well-being is more about the quality of connectedness.” So how do companies find out what employees want? Australian Unity’s Sharon Beaumont, group executive for human resources, runs regular engagement surveys that ask some 1400 staff what’s working and what’s not. As a result, the company recently launched a 50 per cent subsidy on health insurance for staff who sign up for approved health products as part of its wellness offering, and also extended paid parental leave. Stone says that self-managed employee assistance programs are also a good way to gauge what’s hot. “Ideally, these are funded by the company or subsidised. AMP established a slush fund where staff contribute between $5 and $8 a month and they choose what services they want. It’s completely staff managed and driven, with a participation rate of about 82 per cent,” he says. Sometimes, money talks, says Stone. When IBM offered a $150 cash rebate to employees who attended


Being Well

the company’s physical activity programs, participation rates soared from 10,000 to 100,000. But not always. When Delta Airlines offered staff a $45 cash incentive to take a health-risk assessment, the response was underwhelming, but raffling 25 gift certificates for a year’s health insurance had them scurrying to the doctor’s suite. A study by Monash University for TravelSmart Victoria, Measuring the Benefits of Corporate Health and Wellbeing Initiatives, found that corporates were implementing programs because it was the “right thing to do” and often failed to monitor and evaluate the value of initiatives. On this point, Abbey agrees: “It would be very difficult to measure well-being because it’s not conceptualised (that is to say) … how do you measure something you don’t know how to define?” The study also found that: “Rigorous scientific studies have failed to prove reduced absenteeism and increased productivity are direct (and measurable) benefits of health initiatives, but the weight of evidence suggest that they do contribute to these goals.”

Enter Stone, with a battery of research that shows wellness programs are making quality inroads. A Harvard Business Review study into workplace wellness found that work/life balance programs were returning $3 to $5 on average for every dollar invested. Coca-Cola attributes savings of $500 per year per employee. Stone also quotes research from PricewaterhouseCoopers Health Research Institute, done in conjunction with the World Economic Forum, which discusses how employee wellness bolsters the bottom line. It says that the economic case for prevention “is overwhelming”. In the future, employees who refuse to take ownership of their health through preventative measures may well find employers forcing the issue. Stone says companies in the US are beginning to reject applicants who smoke or have a high health risk, and legislation currently allows it. \

STAND UP AND BE COUNTED And you thought running three nights a week, yoga twice weekly and walking to work was enough to maintain your fabulousness. Not according to Dr Alicia Thorp, a research fellow at Baker IDI’s Healthy Lifestyle Research Centre. You need to stand up at meetings, when using the phone or having a quick chat to a colleague. According to Dr Thorp, a reasonable body of evidence suggests that regular exercise is not enough to prevent heart disease and diabetes for people who sit for long periods. We need a “whole day” approach to physical activity. “Muscle contraction is a major contributor to many of the body’s regulatory processes, such as breaking down glucose, and when we sit, our leg muscles are essentially inactive,” she says. “Sitting for prolonged periods can ‘slow down’ the production and activities of key enzymes involved in removing fats and sugars from the blood.” She says “Stand up, move more, more often” should be our mantra.

MUST DO’S

A healthy and vibrant lawn will hide a multitude of sins elsewhere, so you want it to look its best. Patch where needed with instant lawn, fertilise and top dress, all the while giving it as much love as possible with the lawnmower and hose. Next, it’s on to the foliage and anything that looks tired. Don’t get nostalgic about those party lights you hung in the once-flourishing branches, cut out dead wood, clear fallen branches and leaves and remove any sick or unsightly plants. Remember to mulch with good-quality fine mulch as this will make one of the biggest differences to an existing garden.

THINGS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Filling tired looking or bare garden beds with lots of green gives the impression that the garden is sumptuous and alive. Introduce different species and different pot sizes to make it feel more established and full but be sure not to overpower anything that already exists. Define the lines in your garden between either lawn and garden or gravel and lawn with maybe timber or brick. This will add to the overall neatness. Paint boundary fences in flat black or charcoal where you can to neaten up your backdrop and add depth to garden beds (I recommend Dulux Black Fence paint). If your backyard has paving, it’s likely to look a little warn if you’ve lived there for years. I suggest using hydrochloric acid diluted or commercial-grade cleaner (available from any paving supplier) together with a high-pressure cleaner to really smarten up those pavers (available for hire at Kennards Hire or others). Framing entrances with a pair of pots and matching plants gives an instant visual impact to prospective buyers as they enter your property. Keep pot and plant simple and remember – scale. You can always rent potted plants from your local nursery. If you plan to take that 12-seat outdoor setting to

CL E A NED PAV ING IS A MU S T

your next house, we suggest you put it in storage. Often a simple day bed or pair of outdoor sun lounges with cushions adds far more to a garden space. If you have one of those problem areas of dead space or a lawn that lacks any lustre, try adding a simple garden bench for interest and purpose. You can see now why you should put the garden task at the top of your list, and if these tasks seem impossible, you can always rely on the expertise and advice of a landscape gardener. \

Masters of their domain C

omdain Homes, a family-owned company with a reputation for reliability and a quality product, has been building luxury custom houses in Melbourne’s eastern and northern suburbs for the past 21 years. On October 2 it added another award to an impressive string of building accolades when its Urbane 110 won the Master Builders Association of Victoria’s 2010 Excellence Award for the best display home of more than $500,000. This house’s clear point of difference is that it has two main bedrooms, each with an en suite. The reasoning behind this illustrates Comdain’s thorough understanding of its target market. “The home is perfect for the growing family. With a master bedroom downstairs and another upstairs, as well as two additional bedrooms and a third bathroom upstairs, it has ample guest accommodation, leaving the first floor for private family living,” Comdain director Peter Coen said. “When the children leave home and the parents are at a stage where they don’t want to cope with stairs, the downstairs master bedroom becomes theirs, leaving plenty of guest accommodation upstairs. We find people usually love where they live and don’t want to move just because they can’t use the stairs any more. We want to create a long-term home for them,” he said. The Urbane 110 features a stone foyer with a 5.5-metre atrium and a Victorian ash staircase. The large formal lounge can be transformed into a home theatre, and in the kitchen attention has been paid to every detail, from the soft-closing mechanisms on the cabinetry to the shadowline details on cabinet benchtops. This attention to detail is also evident in the bathroom fit-out. Lifestyle is key to the Urbane 110, with internal and outdoor

options for entertaining. The kitchen is central to the living area, opening directly onto the well-protected outdoor dining area and adjacent to the dining and family rooms. Coen said Comdain’s philosophy was to provide timeless styling. “Our designs have a balanced, contemporary theme with current market appeal but we want them to also carry well into the future.” The company prides itself on what Coen calls “full-circle service”, providing expertise in design, project management and construction and using an established network of master tradesmen.\

t’s lavish, luxurious and showcases the grandeur of old-style Toorak. Located on what is regarded as one of Toorak’s grandest boulevards, this property, with a stunning garden, tennis court, swimming pool, gym and massage room, remains very much a family home. It has seen parties for 400, dinners for 80, weddings and the full gamut of family celebrations. “Every single part of the house is used,” says the vendor. “In all honesty, I will miss the memories most, then privacy and the lushness of the garden. “The kitchen was designed by a woman. It has an industrial fan, so I can barbecue for 20 people on the indoor barbecue. Caterers have come in and cooked for 80 in our kitchen.” The vendors have lived here for 20 years. The children have flown the coop, so the parents are preparing to follow suit. The house has large formal rooms, an entry foyer, library or den, granite-finished kitchen, walk-in pantry, informal dining, family living room/rumpus room, powder room, three bathrooms, four bedrooms and a terrace with views over the trees. Starting from the high wall that shields the property from the street, everything about this house is impressive. The front and back gardens were designed by the late landscape architect Damian Colombo, and they create a soothing blend of outdoor living, with large sandstone-paved al fresco areas and garden rooms leading to the pool and tennis court. If ever you wanted a resort-style home and a spectacular backdrop for entertaining, this certainly is a classic example. There have been several renovations over the years. Most recently architect Graham Fisher, of Guildford Bell and Graham Fisher Architects, built an en suite to the main bedroom. It is all French limestone and colour-backed glass. The main bedroom also has a full walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and a wall of built-in wardrobes. The architect also created a private gym and massage room off the main bedroom. The story goes that an American architect was brought to Melbourne in the 1920s to design this house and two others. He built this one in a Spanish mission style. Tommy Hanlon jnr, the American-born entertainer and media celebrity in the 1960s and later ringmaster for Silvers Circus, owned the house for many years. Nearly 100 years after it was built, this place remains rock solid. The rendered façade was originally white but is now painted taupe. Interiors are spacious. Some rooms have been reworked with plenty of marble, and a large granite-finished kitchen has a view to the tennis court.

About this room

Original arched windows allow natural light inside living and dining rooms. Timber mantelpieces are french polished with glazed tile inserts and highly decorative ceilings feature Venetian glass chandeliers.

An extension created the rumpus room and home theatre and terrific indoor-outdoor living and entertainment zones, but the original features stand out. The formal rooms at the front show this house’s sheer class. Big, but not too big, they are connected by sliding glass doors with detailed leadlight panels and copper trim. Ceilings have complex plaster mouldings and the original arched windows allow in maximum light. Working fireplaces in both front rooms have timber mantelpieces and tiled surrounds. The library or den also has an open fireplace. The original broad timber staircase has a simple geometric pattern detail in the balustrade. This house predates the concept of the upstairs children’s retreat. But there is no need for a retreat, as there are plenty of rooms for different generations to each have their own space. The upstairs is reserved for bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms are large, with built-in timber desks and bookshelves with storage beneath. All bedrooms are exceptionally light. One even has access to a balcony at the front of the house, with views over plane trees on the footpath, giving an idea of the elevation of the property. The parents’ bedroom also has balcony access. Yet, for all its period style, this house has everything for the modern family: Wi-Fi throughout, surround sound, ducted heating, cooling, wet bar, al fresco entertainment areas, high-level security and parking for up to seven cars. \

WE LOVE IT

CANTERBURY

One of the first houses to be built in the area, this 1890 Victorian has the style and substance to complement the surrounding mansions. The façade is classic Victorian with tuck-pointed Hawthorn brickwork, a slate roof and a verandah with tessellated tiles. The house is surrounded by a glorious landscaped garden. Inside, texture and richness is found in the hand-plastered ceilings, the original open

fireplaces and the white marble mantlepieces. The floor plan is typically Victorian, with a central hallway and bedrooms on either side. The front two bedrooms each have walk-in wardrobes and bay windows overlooking the tree-lined street. The main bedroom is large and features a walk-in wardrobe and a mocha-tiled en suite with an oversized shower. The house then opens up to a large living and dining room, which is comfortable, light and contemporary. With blond floorboards and neutral interiors, the back living area

successfully reflects the natural surroundings. The kitchen has a double pyrolytic oven, five-burner induction cooktop with built-in coffee machine and microwave, two integrated dishwashers and a spacious walk-in pantry. The main living room opens to an outside deck. With a remote-controlled roof, a built-in barbecue and gas fireplace, this area is the perfect spot to relax. The saltwater solar-heated pool is ideal for those hot summer days and the built-in trampoline will win over the children. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

3103 BALWYN Set in a quite cul-de-sac in Balwyn, this new double-storey house is a great example of modern Australian architecture. From the street the house is light and inviting, with long french windows, a large front garden and a stone footpath. The front bedroom is spacious, which is accentuated by long windows and high ceilings. It has a double-sided walk-in wardrobe and a fully tiled en suite. Next to the bedroom is the formal living room, which has an gas open fireplace. The dining room has double doors that open to a north-facing courtyard, ideal for summer entertaining. The kitchen is tastefully neutral and reflects new architectural design trends – white marble benchtops and splashbacks, a wide breakfast bar, Miele appliances, slick cabinetry and a walk-in pantry. It overlooks a back garden that has manicured lawns and a sheltered al fresco area. Upstairs are four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two balconies and a spacious living area. All bedrooms are large and have at least two windows, a walk-in wardrobe and access to an en suite. The main bedroom has a large balcony and overlooks Beckett Park. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

Part of the original Gascoigne Estate, this lovely Californian bungalow is just a few minutes from Central Park, Hedgeley Dene Gardens and Malvern Central School. The property, which has been kept meticulously, has a large front garden, a verandah and a long driveway. Inside, the front is traditional with rooms reflecting the grand proportions of the era. The living room is inviting and cosy and has an open fireplace, leadlight windows and mocha-coloured carpet. The adjoining dining room has the same proportions and period details. The kitchen has granite benchtops and plenty of shelving. It overlooks the family room, which is surrounded by french windows and opens to a paved patio area. With cellar, store room, ducted heating and rainwater tanks, this house caters for a family. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

Built in 1890, this Victorian house is comfortable and inviting. The pretty façade has a high fence, rose bushes, a water feature and intricate iron lacework. The interiors use a warm, yellow palette, with classic Victorian features such as ceiling roses, cornices and decorative archways. At the front on the left is a formal living and dining area, which is light and elegant and has two marble fireplaces. In fact, fireplaces seem to be very much the theme of this house as nearly every room has one. On the right is a main bedroom with a marble en suite and spa bath and a double-sided walk-in wardrobe. A hallway leads to a tall wine cellar and a dining area with large windows that look onto the courtyard. The kitchen features wooden cupboards, stone benches, open shelving and tiled splashbacks. All the bathrooms and powder rooms are light and generous. \ FRANCESCA CARTER AND OLIVIA MCCULLOUGH

WHERE TO LIVE\

ST KILDA Masterfully renovated seven years ago, this French-inspired Victorian terrace is elegant yet functional, with a 2000-bottle cellar under a secure two-car garage with rear-lane access via Marlton Crescent. Behind the high brick fence there is a hand-crafted tessellated tile walkway and English garden surrounding a paved courtyard. Inside, off the wide entry hall, is the combined living and dining room with ceiling roses, French lighting and fireplace, while the balustrade and staircase hide the laundry. The kitchen centres on a Rosieres oven that uses a gas cooktop. There is also a Miele plate warmer, hand-painted porcelain tiles, double sink and a roll-out pantry. The adjoining family room opens to a paved courtyard with a water feature and mains gas barbecue. Upstairs is a double bedroom – with built-in wardrobes and a desk – opening onto a verandah. A spare room and a third bedroom with built-in wardrobes and desk share a bathroom, which has a wood-and-marble vanity, tiling, shower and toilet. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite with a double shower. There is access to a parents’ hideaway or home office, which is network-ready. The house has evaporative cooling upstairs, underfloor heating downstairs and a monitored alarm and masterkey system. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

Auction: October 23 at 2.30pm Timber fretwork on the verandah marks it as late Victorian. The house, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study, is a veritable oasis. Yes, it is on a busy a street and opposite the shops. But it is also zoned to Brighton Primary and Brighton Beach Primary schools. Church Street is a short walk. Despite the main-road location, the double-brick construction makes it surprisingly quiet.

Ladyhill, c1922, is a solid-brick house that recalls a grand era of servants and formal dinners. But it has been totally renovated in keeping with its period so that even the new rooms, such as the kitchen and sunny family room, have strapped ceilings and leadlight windows. The servants’ bells – no longer functioning – are still in the kitchen. The rooms are large and light; the main bedroom is spacious with a new en suite and the study is generous. The country-style kitchen has a British Falcon stove and timber cabinetry. The kitchen leads to the family room and overlooks a landscaped Japanese-style garden. Upstairs, two bedrooms are on either side of a teenager’s retreat, with a third bedroom and bathroom off a hall near the stairs. Remote-controlled gates to a dual-access driveway, ducted heating, air-conditioning, polished timber floors, garage with roof storage and rainwater tanks are more features. The icing on the cake is its position – close to schools, shops and two tramlines. \ MARIA HARRIS

This classic residence offers rear-lane access via Mathoura Road and Gordon Street. The ground floor features an entry, a library, a powder room, a formal living room with bay windows, leadlighting and a fireplace. The dining room has sliding doors opening to one of many water features. The kitchen has Miele appliances and a breakfast bar, and opens to an exquisite atrium that flows through to a paved courtyard. The downstairs main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, a retreat/study, en suite and access to an undercover carport. Another bedroom, laundry with a shower and an adjoining bathroom complete downstairs. Upstairs is a dressing room or computer room, a marble bathroom and second main bedroom, which has separate walk-in wardrobes. There is reverse-cycle air-conditioning in every room upstairs. Downstairs has ducted heating and cooling, plantation shutters, an intercom, an alarm and a separate garage. Hawksburn and Toorak villages are five minutes away. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

elephant in THE the room for agents is always: “How

much is it worth?” You might be having a conversation about the weather or the fact that you all know Peter who went to the same school as so and so. But anyone, whether buyer or seller, who is talking to either a buyer or selling agent about selling their house or one they are interested in buying, really wants to know one thing – what is it worth? Worth is a word that has many meanings to many different people. For example, one person may think they are talking about a house’s worth to the buyer, a second thinks they are talking about its worth to the seller, a third thinks they are talking about an average of what the buyer and seller may think, person four may be thinking about what the bank thinks it will be worth in a mortgage situation. Person five is thinking about what the council thinks it is worth for rateable purposes, person six thinks of replacement worth, person seven thinks about its worth to live in and what the alternatives may be, while person eight is thinking of rent and how this will be as an

investment. And so on. So who is correct? All of them. But the definition I like most is “an indefinite quantity of something having a specified value”. How is a house an indefinite quantity? A house is a definite quantity, surely – it is 650 square metres of north-facing land in Hawthorn, plus a 320-square metre timber house needing a $150,000 cosmetic makeover. Surely that is a definite quantity. Yes it is, but a house isn’t like a TV set or a new car or a BHP share or a normal commodity. It has one more indefinite ingredient – emotion. A home = land + building + emotion. So if we look at the indefinite quantity of something as being emotion, we can move to the second part of the definition: having a specified value. What does value mean? For the sake of this argument, let’s define value as a money measurement. Now there is the most emotional word of all in that part of the definition – money. It’s amazing how you can take a rational situation involving two people and make it completely irrational by adding one inanimate ingredient – money. However, in calculating worth, money is not the ingredient that leads to the irrational, but rather the emotion behind

SEARCH & WIN 1 of 8 $1000 Prizes

“A HOME = LAND + BUILDING + EMOTION.” it. Money is merely a conduit, a medium of exchange, a unit of measurement, a representation of value. So what I am trying to get across here is that a house’s worth is very much to do with its “beauty in the eye of the beholder”. Specifically, it has a specified quantity of land and building, plus an unspecified quantity of a third component – emotion. In this forum over the next few weeks, we will look at how emotion is measured. Because ultimately, in order for an exchange to take place, the worth of a house is determined via the buyer and the seller reaching an agreement on the three components. So how much is a house worth? Well, now you know. It’s a specified value of an indefinite quantity. I’m sounding like an agent, aren’t I? Sorry. MAL JAMES James Buyer Advocates www.james.net.au
