For this reason, it is dangerous to feed legitimate political discontent over broken promises or inadequate services with the inherently antisocial distrust of broader democratic institutions – parliaments, courts, bureaucracies. When I interviewed former prime minister John Howard on News Breakfast last year about his autobiography, I asked him if he thought a Tea Party-type movement was possible in Australia. He did not, because, he said, Australia’s federation encouraged a commonality of purpose and sense of connection that the still-strong and very individualistic “states rights” doctrine of the US could not. I thought that analysis was very sound, and still do. But the ties that bind us, that bind any society, are most easily unpicked by fear – something history has surely taught us well. \

the Power of two Sam StyneS

has struggled, as so many of us do, to live in the moment. As in, stop making plans for next week or next year, just live right now. She read Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now, which she says helped. And she does regular meditation sessions. It’s been a slow journey, but she thinks she has found some sort of calm amid the upheaval of dealing with her husband Jim’s illness. “If my mates were to read this they’d say ‘You’re so hard on yourself’ but I (used to be) quite childish in some ways,” Stynes says. “What dawned on me was I was always ‘I can stand on my own two feet, I’m independent, I studied feminism, rah rah rah …’ But then when it smacked me in the face ‘You may be alone if Jim doesn’t come out the other end’ it scared the shit out of me. Now I think I can cope. I’m not saying it would be easy, I just think I’ve grown up a lot and I appreciate things that I (once) probably would have taken for granted. “I used to spend a fair bit of time … it’s a fairly common discourse for mums to sit round complaining (that) their husband said this or did this or my kid won’t do this, nah nah nah, I’ve got to go to the school play … And I know a lot of it is not really meant, it’s just how we all get by. Now, I wouldn’t waste a breath on any of those conversations because I appreciate all those moments.” We’re talking in a café on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda, near where the Stynes live, and it’s a chance to meet the woman who has handled with such grace and dignity her husband’s very public battle with cancer. She’s down-to-earth, matter-of-fact, breezy and refuses to sugar coat the trauma the Stynes family has gone through since she noticed a large lump on Jim’s neck two years ago and suggested he get it checked out. The diagnosis of cancer in June 2009 changed the family’s life. Jim stepped down as president of the Melbourne Football Club and went into endless rounds of tests and treatment; Sam held the home life together, making sure their children Matisse, now 9, and Tiernan, now 5, were OK. “Ups and downs,” she says of how she’s coped. “I’ve definitely had moments. I’ve got a really dear friend who once said to me ‘Sam, I’m happy to put my hand down and help you out of that well, but I can’t get in there with you because it’s no good for anyone’. “I just keep trudging along. Life goes on. I just deal with it day to day. It’s very hard to plan anything. That’s been tough. That goes for anything, from catching up with a friend to a holiday. One day you get a test result and it’s surgery in two days time. It’s like – OK. I might think I’m going to go to the movies with my girlfriends one night and then I have take Jim to the emergency ward. That sort of thing happens all the time. “My dad died of prostate cancer after six years with it. Going through what I’m going through now, I don’t think I had any understanding of what he and his wife at the time were going through, even as his daughter. You’ve sort of got to be in it (to understand it). “He was given quite a short life expectancy and he battled on for six years. (He died aged 61). I’ve done it in a similar way once before.” Does Stynes feel stronger than she thought and was she surprised by this? “Now I’m surprised by it. Looking back, a lot of it was a blur, it’s like your world is sometimes closing in on you. Now I feel I’m coming out of that a bit, able to cope and keep going. I mean, what choice does anyone have? Life goes on. My immediate family have been just fantastic. Our friends have been amazing. Our business partners. The football club. Reach Foundation. I think the people in our lives is testament to the type of person Jim is.” Stynes copes with awkwardness about the topic of cancer with humour. “I use humour a lot and I think it breaks the ice. Don McLardy (vice-president) and his 6 The weekly review \ march 30, 2011

wife, Clare, were outside the hospital room and I walked up. They were both really worried. And I was halfway down the corridor and I said ‘Oh my God, he’s not dead is he?’ And they were horrified. Don said ‘Sam, your sense of humour needs some work’. A really close friend of mine, Trisha Broadbridge (whose husband Troy died in the south-east Asian tsunami in 2004), she was like that and I’d say ‘Trisha, you cannot say things like that, people won’t understand it’, but now I find I’m like that and I do it a lot. In some ways it makes people feel uncomfortable, in other ways it breaks the ice.” Do they get sick of being asked about it? “Not really. I probably feel I’m always droning on about it. It must be horrible to listen to because there’s always the new chapter to the story.” Sam Stynes was born in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, and her family moved to Melbourne when she was two. Her early years were spent in Glen Waverley and Wheelers Hill. Her parents divorced when Stynes was 15 and she lived at her father’s house in Mount Macedon, where there was a vineyard and horses, and at her mother’s in St Kilda. “I had the best of both worlds – city and country life,” she says. She went to Wesley College in Prahran. “I was an introverted sort of kid. I ran with the popular wolves.” But as well as being in the cool set at school, she also had a passion for the more insular world of horse-riding. “I spent every second weekend with dad, so instead of going to the parties (in Melbourne) I went up there and rode the horses and pottered around the farm.” Stynes said her parents’ separation was difficult. “Those were the years when (I was) doing VCE and things … I did find the travelling hard, packing bags to and from Mount Macedon to St Kilda … It was hard at the time. Then I watched them get on with their lives and be really happy, and they eventually both settled down with somebody else.”

A

fter school she studied teaching and visual arts. “My dad was of that generation that ‘You won’t make it as an artist, you should have a back-up degree’. She made some extra money waitressing in cafés in Acland Street. “I got into and enjoyed the whole St Kida lifestyle – lots of arty people, creative people.” She taught at a primary school in Lower Plenty before moving to a school in North Carlton where there were many children from the Neill Street Housing Commission flats. “I loved that job,” she says of the Carlton primary. “ Lower Plenty was good to learn about teaching but it wasn’t very eclectic. By the time I got to Neil Street I loved those kids, migrant kids (many from) Africa.” She met Jim Stynes when he was still playing football for the Demons, a big Irish ruckman with an amazing

capacity to play through injury and who won the Brownlow Medal in 1987 for the fairest and best in the AFL. Stynes is one of football’s greatest stories. She was a long way from embracing the football culture. “The first game I ever watched him play he (had) asked me to go along and I asked my older brother to come and (Jim) said ‘Meet me at the change room door’. This was in the day when girlfriends waited outside the change room door. So I stood out there for 15, 20 minutes and found it such a bad … I thought ‘I’m not going to stand here and wait for this guy at a change room door’. I found it belittling and I went home. “It was at the time that I was studying all those poststructuralist feminist subjects so I (had) all these ideals and beliefs. I didn’t embrace football when Jim played. It’s only in more recent times that I’ve thought ‘If you can’t beat it, join it’. So now I really


with her husband Jim saying he is “almost free” of cancer, Sam Stynes has had to summon courage and sometimes dark humour to deal with it. PeTer wILMoTh spoke with her before the recent good news. moved on when work and family got too much. “I don’t really like working with Jim and being at home with him as well.” She had a women’s apparel business for a couple of years before offering freelance articles, mainly “human-interest stories”, to the Sunday Herald Sun. She then for several years helped Jim with a childcare business, Pacific Early Learning, of which Jim is a director. “I run art sessions, advertising, marketing, colors for new centres, anything that’s creative.” The journey has been scary at times. “It’s been tough. It’s exhausting. I’ve learnt to make the most of the good times. It’s hard work every day, whether Jim’s having treatment, which is ongoing. There’s never a time when there’s not some treatment happening. “The kids have been doing quite well. Cracks started to appear at the end of last year, a combination of the end of the year, being tired, and the longevity of the journey. They’re kids. It’s like ‘When’s this going to end?’ For kids, it’s as simple as ‘Is dad going to live or is dad going to die? When’s the cancer going to go away? When are you going to be better, daddy?’ We made a decision last year that we’d need to pull him right back from the public as much as we can. Certain things might be said at school, quite innocently sometimes, but it can be quite upsetting. To protect them a little bit from it.”

S

enjoy the football, all aspects of the game, the social side, that you’re in a club and a community. From my take (Jim) was one of the good guys. Of his peers at the time, it was Garry Lyon and Todd Viney. I always felt treated with the utmost respect in that scene.” She married Stynes in 2000 and left her teaching position when she became pregnant with Matisse. “When I got married and we had children I hadn’t really sorted out what I was doing,” she says. “It was just sort of what you did. So when we had our first baby, Jim dropped me home from the hospital and went off to work and I had this little… it started to dawn on me quite quickly. I didn’t realise how much it changes your life having kids. It was like putting your life in a jar and shaking it up.” Stynes is very honest about parenting Matisse and Tiernan. She wrote in the Herald Sun last May:

“Even today my role as a mum often sees me yelling at my eight-year-old daughter, Matisse, and my five-year-old son, Tiernan, to stop fighting in the back seat of the car, begrudgingly getting their bags packed for school every morning so they are on time, ranting and raving that I am not the family’s slave as I slam the washing machine door shut, and having to control my road rage on Fitzroy Street on the way to school for an 8.15am drop. At times Matisse thinks I am the meanest mum around and has asked me, ‘Do you even like being a mum, ’cause it seems like you hate it?’ ” Stynes completed a masters of education, with her thesis on the work done by Reach, which Jim had established in 1994, “to try and get some academic framework on what they do in there”. For several years she worked as an education consultant for Reach but

he has admired how well the kids have coped. “Amazing. Our five-year-old, he’s still quite small. How he makes sense of it, I’m not sure. With Matisse it’s been more difficult because she’s that little bit older. She may hear snippets of conversations or phone calls and go away and make up her own understanding. We just try and stay open with it.” Is she amazed at how well Jim has coped? “In 18 months he’s never had reactions that I would assume he should have. He’s never had a tantrum or started screaming or crying or ‘Why me?’ He’s been grumpy at different times through pain and certain drugs he’s had to take, but even so he recognises that and continues to work on it. It actually astounds me, really … “There’s been times I’ve wanted to shake him and say ‘Aren’t you cross?’ I think Jim thinks that this is some sort of great life experience he’s getting to have. “In the early days when he was diagnosed, he said ‘Look, if it ends up being my time, it’s my time’. He’s had an amazing life, he believes, a blessed life, and he’s loved every minute of it. He’s got a good attitude.” But of course there is fear. “Completely. When you plan out your life and you think … things are always going to come in and surprise you along the way, but when something really serious comes in – we have no control now. It’s in the hands of the doctors and treatment and fate and possibly a miracle.” But, I say, no one has control. “But we think we do,” she says. “We feel we do. And it feels good.” Stynes enjoys St Kilda. “I love it here. It’s eclectic. I love Norm, who lives in the boarding house round the corner. It sounds clichéd and stupid but there are a lot of real people.” She would like to write a book. “That’s my ultimate dream. My friend teases me – you think too much, you over-analyse. Stop thinking. Live in the now.” \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au

DECANTER\ BEN THOMAS IS AN ORANGE FAN a fan as anyone of a I’M AS BIG  bit of good-natured Melbourne-Sydney rivalry, but the Harbour City put on a good show earlier this month with the power one-two of my brother-in-law Daniel’s wedding plus the Sydney Cellar Door. I won’t go into details of the wedding, other than to say what a good job the happy couple did of showing us their adopted city, how much wine the two combined families managed to consume, and that I was surprised and impressed by the quality of the wines served at the reception. Feeling somewhat worse for wear the next morning, I sped into the city to where the cream of NSW’s winemaking talent was pouring its wines in the one spot. I had hoped to meet a few winemakers that I’d

only ever spoken with over the phone and to try a few wines from regions that we don’t hear too much about in Melbourne. There has been a bit of hype about the remote, coolclimate Orange region in wine-industry circles lately – especially its chardonnay – so I made a beeline for their stands. And here they all were, in one area of the park in the middle of Sydney with winemakers ready, and most certainly able, to talk for hours about their wines and why Orange can produce top-level chardonnay. It’s well known that you only have to mention the word chardonnay for my ears to prick up, and as I tasted and talked my way around the stands, one thing became clear – we should believe the hype. Wine after wine showed classic cool-climate chardonnay characters – white stonefruit, cantaloupe,

lemon and grapefruit – and the best of them showed that the flavours could handle a bit of oak. They were pretty good value, too. It’s always hard to get a good handle on a wine’s charms at a big tasting, especially when you’re chatting away, so I was onto my contact who works promoting Orange wines the following day asking for samples of a few of the region’s chards. Orange is an interesting wine region. Part of the NSW Central Tablelands, it’s a four-hour drive west of Sydney and its grapes are grown at high altitude in the shadow of Mount Canobolas – an extinct volcano – and are able to build complex flavours as they ripen slowly. Grapes were first grown in Orange in the 1880s when the railway to Sydney arrived, but these were table grapes. It wasn’t until the early 1980s that vineyards were planted and winemaking got serious in Orange. Orange might be in the middle of hot NSW, but it’s a cool-climate wine region. There are two types of cool climates when it comes to growing wine grapes: latidudinal and altitudinal. Regions such as the Yarra Valley and Tasmania are cool because their southerly latitude has fairly cool summers, and then there are those such as Orange and the King Valley that have an altitude that provides cool days and nights throughout the growing season. In fact, to be classified as a wine from Orange, the vineyard must be at least 600 metres above sea level. The highest grapes in the region are grown at a lofty altitude of 1050 metres. While fewer than half of Orange’s vineyards are planted with white grape varieties, the majority is chardonnay. Keep an eye out for Orange sauvignon blanc – they’re doing a great job with that, too. \

taste this Brangayne of Orange Isolde Reserve Chardonnay 2009 (Orange) $30; 14% ★★★★

Brangayne is named after the character who prepares the love potion for Isolde in Wagner’s opera Tristan and Isolde. This is easy to fall in love with. It’s all citrus, white stonefruits, cantaloupe, apple, cashews and hint of fine French oak on the nose, with these flavours replicated on the palate. It’s well balanced, with nice texture and a bright line of citrus acid that drives on the flavoursome finish. Food match \ Salmon fishcakes

Ross Hill Chardonnay 2009

Printhie MCC Collection Chardonnay 2009

Philip Shaw No.11 Chardonnay 2009

Grown at an altitude of 750 metres, this was whole-bunch fermented using wild yeasts. It’s the sort of wine you just want to keep sniffing, with its bouquet of nectarine, cantaloupe, quince, nuts and buttered toast. With flavours of white stonefruits, melon and cashews, there is quality, well-integrated oak that adds to the wine’s complexity. It’s relatively soft on the palate but is well-structured and has a nice creamy texture. Flavours build and build on the lovely finish. Best not spend too long sniffing after all.

Printhie is one of Orange’s leading wineries and its standard chardonnay is good value at nearly half the price of this. Its elegant, complex aromas of white peach, cantaloupe rind, almond meal and spicy oak also have a faint hint of exotic tropical fruits. On the palate, delicious lemon, grapefruit, mineral, nuts and stonefruit flavours are balanced nicely with a taut cool-climate structure, creamy texture and a persistent nuts-and-minerals finish.

From one of Australia’s highest vineyards – at 900 metres above sea level and planted in the late ’80s – comes this lovely, effortless wine. Layered, complex aromas of cantaloupe, white stonefruit, earth, nuts, spicy French oak and minerals set the tone for this wonderful chardonnay. Clean, crisp flavours of white peach, grapefruit and mealy notes lead on to a lovely soft texture. Bright acid balances the wine out well and a lingering finish really impresses.

Mayfield Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2009 (Orange) $26; 12.5% ★★★★ I really liked the mineral style of this, but it took a day to reveal all its charms. Decant the wine into a jug and then back into the bottle to help it open up. This smells and tastes of citrus, melon rind, Granny Smith apples, slate, minerals and nuts. This complexity, matched with dry, chalky acid and a nice texture makes, it a pretty good drop at a nice price. Food match \ Grilled whiting

attention. Executive chef of both venues, 23-year-old Justin Beilin (Hong Kong Football Club, the Arcadia Hotel, MoVida and Stokehouse), joined the team in December and introduced his latest Sista menu at the start of March. Beilin describes the food at Canary as “more refined”, “more Middle Eastern”, while at Sista it’s “more North African”; admittedly, he says, a lot of it comes out of his own imagination, too. And most of it, including pizzas on request, is ferried down from the Hairy Canary kitchen. Share plates, “small, interesting things to share” feature strongly. Beilin says the innovative dishes are the inventions of his young, culturally diverse kitchen team. There are eight Nepalese, four Indians, two New Zealanders and two Australians. Other than his 31-year-old sous chef, all are younger than him. “Everybody takes it in turn to create a dish that goes on the tapas tasting plate,” he says. “I may put on a few finishing touches, or re-season a dish, but generally they have been created by my team.” In the first week of the new menu, the tasting plate, which holds “four tasty little mouthfuls”, consisted of crispy pork belly on spicy apple chutney; mixed mushroom croquettes; lamb pinchos with mojo verde (green salsa) and baby wagyu polpette with mojo picon (red salsa). The lamb pinchos (Spanish for spike) were Beilin’s creation and are a staple. Made with lamb backstrap marinated in olive oil, cumin, rosemary and garlic, their strong flavour is lifted by his mother’s harissa recipe. Beilin attributes much of his share-plate style of cooking to her influence. “When I was growing up there were always 10 or so share plates of food on the table, so even though it’s become popular in Melbourne in the last few years, this is the way I have always eaten.” His mother is a Russian Jew and his father is Australian, so family food crossed cultures. Other share plates include excellent Middle Eastern-style buffalo wings with bleu de Laqueuille (French blue cheese) dipping sauce. “When we first put these on the menu, we called them chicken wings and they didn’t move,” says Beilin. “One day the barman and I were talking. He suggested we call them buffalo wings and create a wetter-style sauce.” The sauce of red capsicum, tomato, hot paprika, dried jalapeno chilli and red onion, is spicy and sweat-inducing, and the blue cheese sauce is its perfect foil. The wings probably get a little lost, but at least they are popular now. From the bigger dishes menu, labelled “slightly carnivorous”, the lamb cutlet cotoletta is worth a notable mention. It’s an Italian dish, traditionally made with veal cutlets coated in breadcrumbs. Beilin’s version features three large, lean lamb cutlets coated in mint, mahon (a salty, Spanish cheese) and parmesan, then mustard flour and finally a cinnamon, cumin and egg wash before being deep fried. There’s a room-temperature cauliflower puree underneath (more would have been nice) and a red-wine vinegar-soused salad of shaved fennel and roasted red capsicum. It’s

roasted by the group’s Sensory Lab. Robin Shepherd says he and fellow owners Marco and Aaron Garbellotto – previously partners in a newsagency – have retained the components of the café’s reputation-earning formula. They took over six months ago, after looking for a business in the city and stumbling across Liar Liar. “We came in and loved the carrot cake so much we bought the café,” he jokes. Most of the staff were retained and Shepherd says the emphasis will be on improved customer service. While Sensory Lab is roasting the house blend and some daily coffees, other single-origin beans are roasted by Five Senses in Cheltenham and Market Lane Coffee in Prahran. A cold-drip brew, made with a lightly roasted bean from Honduras, was unlike other darker-roasted versions I’ve tried. It was more subtle, with notes of bittersweet chocolate, a hint of raw cashews and a mild finish; the

gently roasted beans making it more akin to a cooled syphon coffee. Enthusiastic staff made the experiment fun. Attending a cupping (tasting) session BARiSTA once a week at roaster Market Lane Coffee allows head barista Jack Watson (right) to challenge his senses. Watson is fascinated by the flavour nuances in wine and says he’s on a massive learning curve. Liar Liar’s coffee menu lists one house blend, a daily single origin for espresso – mine was from Kirimara Estate in Kenya – and a range of other first-rate beans for pour-over, Clover and filter brews. Watson (ex-Woodstock in Armadale) says he encourages customers to experiment with a Clover brew. “After all, we are one of only six places in Melbourne with a Clover. And I enjoy going through flavour profiles with them. When I tell people we have a Guatemalan El Triangulo with notes of jam and butter, they get pretty excited,” he says. \

for thought food security is the “new black mini-dress” in the mix of charity organisations, according to Katy Barfield, executive director of SecondBite. Its principal goal, in one word? Extinction, writes AndrEw McutchEn.

econdBite does more than just aim to collect surplus food and supply it to Australia’s most vulnerable and marginalised. Its mission is also to provide that food in the form of fresh and nutritious raw ingredients, suitable for a whole range of meals, depending on the recipient’s culture or cooking ability. “Our immediate point of difference as a food-security organisation is that we’ve only ever focused on the raw ingredients,” says charismatic executive director Katy Barfield. “We’ve given people and agencies the dignity to make the meals that they want to create, that are culturally appropriate for their clients as opposed to saying, ‘This is what you’re eating’. Empowering the community to cook together and eat together is a part of our mission, I think that that’s very powerful. There’s a social-inclusion value that comes from eating a meal together and the preparation that goes into it.” Much like any other corporate venture, Barfield is intent on avoiding duplication with other players in the space. The efforts to hone a point of difference are just as critical for not-for-profit organisations, as in many cases they are competing for the same grants and aiming to serve the same clients. From SecondBite’s humble beginnings in 2005, when founders Simone and Ian Carson would collect surplus fruit and vegetables from Prahran Market and then drop it at local charities themselves from the boot of their car, the focus has remained fixedly on fresh, raw ingredients. “We haven’t changed; we haven’t started cooking like FareShare (previously One Umbrella) or storing loads of non-perishables like the VicRelief Foodbank. I’m really anti-duplication in this space. I think there are limited funds and we’re all trying to serve the same end. You’re trying to help people get access to healthy, nutritious food. We’ve got much more power by doing that together in this space than if we compete with each other.” The “light-bulb moment” for British citizen Barfield, who joined the fledgling organisation four years ago after establishing popular bar Bar Humbug in the city and before that completing a long stint in event management for Children in Crisis in Britain, came when she discovered the quality and quantity of the food being ploughed into landfill by large supermarket chains. “Originally it was just me being appalled at the amount of fantastic-quality fresh food that was going to

12 The weekly review \ march 30, 2011


waste and the amount of people that couldn’t afford to put food on the table,” says Barfield, who admits a “flair” for raising money and awareness. “I found that abhorrent, really; it’s just crazy. That’s how it started and then it’s developed because now it’s about looking at how we need to help people before they actually access those other community food programs; what we can do as an organisation to really bring about that kind of systemic change.” Falling under the umbrella term of “food security”, which refers to the availability of food and a person’s access to it, SecondBite operates out of a nondescript warehouse in a Kensington business park and delivers daily to more than 50 agencies around Melbourne. “Food security is the new black mini-dress in a way, which is fine because it means there’s more focus going on it,” Barfield says. Recently she’s had prime spots on mainstream current-affairs programs such as A Current Affair. “We talk as much as possible with FareShare and the VicRelief Foodbank in particular to ensure we support the working relationship, and it works well.” On site at SecondBite there is a small cold store, salvaged from a supermarket and repaired, one floor of offices furnished with chairs and desks that had been headed for landfill and a donated forklift as well as several donated delivery vans. Many of the day-to-day roles within the company are filled by volunteers (to join its ranks, visit www.secondbite.org.au) but there is a core team of drivers and workers alongside Barfield and her skeleton office staff to ensure that all food received at SecondBite is sorted, stored and then delivered. Any spoilage is binned and picked up by pig farmers such as Robert Thoolan, who drive many kilometres to take home upwards of eight tonnes of nutritious animal feed a week.

SecondBite FirSt to Help Victorian Flood VictimS SecondBite’s developing regional network – where its Community Connect program is matching food donors with people in need – means that when natural disasters strike, the organisation is ready and able to meet increased demand for services. After the recent floods in parts of country Victoria, SecondBite was able to provide much-needed emergency food to a major relief centre in Calivil. “SecondBite is rallying its food donors to provide food for flood-affected Victorians,” Barfield said, in a follow up email to this interview. “In partnership with the Australian Red Cross and VRFB, SecondBite is collecting food throughout Melbourne and surrounding districts and distributing it. The food distributed includes fresh fruit, vegetables and salads, non-perishables and ready-to-eat meals, bearing in mind that some areas have limited ability to reheat meals.”

“The pigs love it,” Thoolan says. “I used to feed them pellets, but that’d be like eatin’ corn flakes every day. Boring!” Food security may be in fashion but, unlike a black mini or skinny jeans, it’s unlikely to be out of vogue, or out of people’s minds in a year from now. While Barfield quips that the goal of SecondBite is its own extinction – “because if we’re not here, then there’s no food being wasted and there’s no people going hungry” – she has her mind on more realistic obstacles in the meantime. While there are “no policy roadblocks” in the way of the redistribution of discarded food, especially with the introduction of the recent Good Samaritan Act across the country (and an amendment to the Civil Liability Act in Tasmania) that allows people to donate food safe for human consumption free from common-law liability, there is an ongoing issue of low awareness of SecondBite’s mission in the food industry.

SecondBite has delivered 62,659 kgs of food so far this year

“A big challenge for us is letting the larger food donors know about us,” Barfield says. “We need to access the growers because we know that about half of the waste, and that’s 3.2 million tonnes per year, is happening at that point in the food production process. And this food is often rejected by the major food retailers because it’s imperfect. Imperfection can be anything from wrong labelling to pink ladies that aren’t pink enough or bananas that are too small. Rather than find another outlet, it’s actually cheaper for the farmer to plough it back in or get rid of it. That’s really what we need to target. “We’d like to see food redistribution embedded into local government policy,” Barfield continues, passion colouring her voice. “There are policy improvements that could be made; it’s not currently actively encouraged. If businesses and grocers etcetera and independent retailers were given the opportunity to – and educated about how to – donate their food, I believe more people would.” \

Exotic, faraway and original

here are no hard and fast rules when it comes to fashion; in fact, ask any designer what inspires their collection from one season to the next and chances are their ideas come from the simplest of gestures stumbled across in everyday life. For Melbourne designer Dhini Pararajasingham, it was all about the exotic costume from a faraway place that got her thinking about a theme for her autumn/winter 2011 collection. Titled Uzbek, the glamorous collection might nod to all things 1980s with its pointed shoulders and baggy pants, but there’s a more traditional birthplace that her idea came from. Inspired by the traditional Uzbek costume, the motif can be found in dresses and pants for a touch of something exotic, faraway and yes, certainly original. While the emphasis is on a motif that conjures all things traditional, Pararajasingham’s collection is anything but simple or conformist. It’s edgy, dramatic and is reinterpreted with a gusty yet feminine core. Fresh from showing her collection at this year’s L’Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival, through her label Dhini, the young starlet is certainly turning heads with her stretched leather-look cut-out dresses and pants and shiny gold zip range (from Switzerland, we hear) that brings a playful tone to her tailoring. It was an exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria that provided the source of inspiration for Uzbek, Pararajasingham telling Daily Gloss: “Embroidery from the costumes, and in particular amulet motifs which decorated these costumes, were reinterpreted and formed the print as well as the embroidery in this collection.” Located in central Asia, Uzbekistan sits just north of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan and gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. With a population of about 28 million, the country is big on traditional costume. In fact, in this part of the world, embroidered textiles are a huge part of every day life. Pararajasingham was drawn to this region’s exotic mannerisms and applied it to her fashion world, which only adds to the intrigue of her label. One can’t help but fall in love with her delicate embroidery that finds its way onto necklines, down the arms of dress seams and the abundance of silk-draped pants and sheer, finely spun kimono blouses. Pararajasingham’s Uzbek collection is focused on the harem pant, fluid jackets and the contrast of sheer and opaque runs throughout the range. Pararajasingham studied fashion in Japan and Melbourne and launched her label Dhini at London Fashion Week in 2005. She has since premiered her collections in Australia and has often been described as the next big thing to watch. She says her inspiration can come from architecture, a movement in art or music. At last year’s Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, Dhini was critically acclaimed for its spring/summer ’10-’11 collection, which takes its theme from India’s Mughal period. The young designer went to India to explore the Mughal style in buildings such as the Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar and Humayun’s Tomb. For winter 2011, Dhini is all about body-con (short for body conscious) dresses with asymmetrical sleeves that are delicately decorated with embroidery that appears to float on the fabric. The Uzbek collection is certainly one to look out for. We love Dhini’s prophetic approach to fashion, one that explores beyond the self and embarks on a new world order by trekking back in time. She has dressed everyone from Kelly Osbourne, Tina Arena and Kate Miller-Heidke to Ruby Rose, who no doubt love her use of silk and wool. This season, Dhini is keen on a techno fabric — it’s a super-fine imitation leather with stretch and we know it’ll have plenty of bite this winter. \ janerocca@mac.com

theweeklyreview.com.au/competitions and tell me: who invented the first moisturising cream?

DHAV NAIDU’S TOP-TO-TOE MOISTURISERS

Use creams as soon as you step out of the shower

really knows when lotions were first used to moisturise the face and NO ONE  body but the earliest documentation of a commercial cream can be traced to second-century Greece – Galen, a celebrated physician, developed a salve by mixing grease, perfume and water. This basic recipe is still used today. Body creams, lotions, salves, butters or whatever you want to call them, serve one very big purpose – to lock in moisture. Our largest organ – the skin – loses about a cup of water a day before it’s exposed to “suckers” such as air-conditioning, heating and hot water. When skin is regularly subjected to these rigorous “workouts”, it can dry out faster than normal, especially the legs and arms, as they generally have lower concentrations of oil glands compared to the face. What you need to look for in a body moisturiser is something that is quick to absorb, pleasant smelling so that it will not overpower your perfume and strong enough to target dry spots such as elbows and knees. My tip is use your creams as soon as you step out of the shower – pat your skin with a towel, leaving a thin film of water – that way you will only have to use a tiny bit of product and it goes on better. There are great economical brands such as Palmer’s, Dove, Neutrogena and Nivea, but I would like to introduce you to a batch of body creams that not only do the job terrifically, but are also beauty-insider “secrets”. \

Skin becomes soft and smooth, but keep in mind a little goes a long way and be prepared to be hooked on the aroma.

Beauty insiders swear by this brand of foundations. They’re light to touch but give a fairly good coverage – beautifully easing over minor imperfections and evening out skin tone like no other. It is a winner for me because of the selection of colours: the shades cover the whole gamut of skin tones. Darker skin tones also need not worry about looking “grey” or “ashy” with this foundation.

I confess I am a sucker for the colour purple – there is something about it that just makes me go weak at the knees. No doubt this is a spring colour release for Estee Lauder for the northern hemisphere. But it sits pretty well for our cooler season. The eyeshadow palette and nail polish is my pick of the bunch. To play down the eyes, use the deep violet softly just along the lash line; to intensify it, add the colour all over from lash line to just below the socket and line heavily with a dark-purple or black pencil. » www.esteelauder.com.au march 30, 2011 \ The weekly review 17

The Miles Franklin Literary Award 2011 Longlist Rocks in the Belly by Jon Bauer The Good Daughter by Honey Brown The Mary Smokes Boys by Patrick Holland The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta When Colts Ran by Roger McDonald Time's Long Ruin by Stephen Orr That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott The Legacy by Kristen Tranter Bereft by Chris Womersley

CORRIE PERKIN GETS LOCAL

Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize winner Wolf Hall, Colm Toibin’s subtle and exquisite Brooklyn, and the Stieg Larsson phenomenon, our shop’s bestsellers were books by local authors. It was no surprise, therefore, that when the Miles Franklin literary award longlist was announced in March last year, publishers were buzzing excitedly. So many excellent titles and talented authors, including Alex Miller’s Lovesong, Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey, yet another Peter Carey (Parrot and Olivier in America), Melbourne writers Deborah Forster and Sonya Hartnett, Tom Keneally with another epic, and the eventual winner, Peter Temple, for his outstanding crime novel Truth. As last year mooched along, so did local fiction. The global financial crisis finally hit the book industry, and I suspect some publishers’ courage, commitment – and their chequebooks – were compromised. By Christmas, all independent bookshops were itching for some outstanding local books to include in their customer recommendations. Earlier this month the 2011 Miles Franklin longlist was announced. Given the dearth of outstanding Australian titles in recent months, the judges did well to come up with such a solid list. Among those honoured are two debutante authors and three second-book authors – a great endorsement of our emerging talent. And it was pleasing to see Melbourne journalist Chris Womersley’s slow burner Bereft follow its recent win as the independent booksellers’ best novel of the year with a Miles Franklin mention. It’s true that this year’s longlist lacks the intensity of last year. There is no Coetzee battling it out with a Carey or a Miller. And, with a couple of exceptions, brilliant

difference a year makes. In 2009 and WHAT A  early last year, Australian fiction was firing. Apart from a few international gems such as

This year’s longlist lacks the intensity of last year

writing and skilful storytelling have gone missing. The reviews reflect this and so, too, reader word-of-mouth, which, over the past few months, has been more about the imports and less about the homegrown product. It will be interesting to see which longlist titles experience a sales jump. Literary prizes always prompt interest, particularly among suburban book clubs keen to try something new and outside the group’s comfort zone. Prizes such as the $50,000 Miles Franklin Award, the Booker, and the various state premiers’ literary awards are good for business. Long may they receive the marketing, media and critical support they deserve.

manners BEREFT by Chris Womersley » $24.95 (Scribe)

First published in August last year, Bereft’s popularity has soared since winning the 2011 independent booksellers’ award for best novel in March and, more recently, reaching the Miles Franklin Award longlist. This epic story, set in early 20th-century rural New South Wales, introduces Quinn, a returned soldier who carries with him the emotional and physical scars of the World War One battlefields. Ten years’ earlier, Quinn had left his home town of Flint suddenly after the murder of his 12-year-old sister, Sarah. Is Quinn the murderer, and what is the role of the curious Sadie Fox? Respected literary critic Peter Pierce describes Bereft as “an outstanding work of Australian fiction’’. We agree. \ 18 The weekly review \ march 30, 2011

However, despite an $8000 increase this year, the Miles Franklin requires more money and better marketing. Some writers, also, need to consider more thoughtfully the terms of the late writer’s will, which stipulate that the prize must go to a “published novel or play portraying Australian life in any of its phases’’. For years, the award has been criticised for being too narrow. But if I was a fiction writer, I would grasp the challenge with glee and delve further into Australia’s physical and emotional make-up for worthy material. Last year Alex Miller, twice winner of the Miles Franklin prize, expressed concern for its future. “I think the prize is in danger, especially since writers don’t attend it any more,’’ he said, adding that “sometimes writers don’t even turn up to pick it up”. “It’s in danger of slipping away from us and then we are not going to have a premier literary prize to talk about to the rest of the world.’’ Awards and prizes can have a finite life, and Miller was clever to use coverage of last year’s shortlist announcement to highlight this. But as a bookseller who watches customers gravitate to Miles Franklin prize titles, and who enjoys their discussions about various short and longlisted works, I hope he’s wrong. \

food A GUIDE TO AUSTRALIAN ETIQUETTE by Ita Buttrose » $29.95 (Viking)

Do good manners, grooming and etiquette guides sell? Let’s face it, most of us consider ourselves to be well behaved, so why would we want to buy a book on the topic? And would you ever have the courage to purchase one and give it as a gift to a friends? (“Happy birthday, by the way I think your manners need a makeover.”) I wonder, also, whether former Women’s Weekly publisher Ita Buttrose still has pulling power with customers. Despite these concerns, I thoroughly enjoyed my journey through this little hardback. Advice on how to execute a wedding is always handy, and there are some helpful tips on mobile-phone etiquette and how to explain to friends that you are getting divorced. \

royalty TURKEY: RECIPES AND TALES FROM THE ROAD by Leanne Kitchen » $69.99 (Murdoch Books)

In my next life I want to come back with a set of culinary skills, an ability to take a decent photo and a local publisher who believes the food-as-memoir genre is alive and well and still able to attract a big audience. Enter Leanne Kitchen, a trained chef who is also a talented photographer and writer, and who loves to travel. This beautifully presented book focuses on Turkey, an increasingly popular destination for Australians. “Turks are extremely proud of their culinary culture, and rightly so; it’s a rich, varied and venerable cuisine,” Kitchen (yes, that’s her real name) writes. We recommend this book to all cooks who love Middle-Eastern flavours and want to learn more about the Turkish culture. \

THE ROYALS: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE MONARCHY, FROM YESTERDAY TO TODAY by Life Books » $39.99 (Life Books)

Just in time for the royal wedding, the editors at Life have produced this A4 hardback photo-and-essay rundown of the British royal family, with particular emphasis on the past 50 years. So many kings and queens, so many family issues. A glance at the photo on page 38 of a frowning Queen Victoria with some of her many children and grandchildren (none of whom are smiling) suggests being a royal is not a lot of fun. And photos of Fergie’s and Andrew’s wedding, as well as Di’s and Charles’s, remind us that marital dysfunction can occur in the highest places. And with a new chapter about to begin with Wills and Kate, the fuss seems certain to continue. \

On 2009’s The Life of the World to Come, the Mountain Goats seemed to be sliding into a genre best dubbed alt-Christian rock. Lead Goat John Darnielle has always toyed with ideas of the divine, but his raw tunes had previously kept their feet rooted in the dirt. Happily, album No.7 finds him again stuck somewhere between the mythic and the mundane. Instrumentally, there’s a far wider variety of mood and texture, so much so that it almost plays out like the Goats’ Greatest Hits. If there is a linking theme, it seems to be that of resilience, against overwhelming odds. Opener Damn These Vampires conjures a battered hero at the end of his odyssey. The sun is coming up, but Darnielle’s character is cursing the scars and bite marks the night has left on him. Like many of the tracks here, the arrangement is remarkably simple – little more than a guitar and piano – and yet, emotionally, it’s more epic than U2 at their peak. The remarkable, quasi-spiritual High Hawk Season transforms the trials of youth into a desperate, legendary struggle, as a baritone choir summons teens for battle. For a man with such a thin, reedy voice, Darnielle knows how to land a heavy punch. That said, his vocal stylings won’t be for everyone. High and raw, his throat doesn’t so much carry a tune as strip it back to the bone. Much of the impact comes from lyrics that compress the emotion of a magnum opus into a three-minute tune. Darnielle was rightly praised by The New Yorker as America’s best “non-hip hop” lyricist and, sure enough, you feel this wordsmith would be happier unfolding his art across a great American novel. Yet Darnielle’s god made him a musician, and a damn good one at that. Lucky him, and lucky us. \

huMAn righTS ArTS And FilM FeSTivAl \ The Astor Theatre, Thursday March 31, 6.45 for 7pm start

The Human Rights Arts and Film Festival might not start until May, but this Thursday its annual fund-raising gala takes place at the Astor Theatre. Former PM Malcolm Fraser will be keynote speaker for a night of film, cocktails and fabulous prizes. Gracing the silver screen is documentary Afghan Star, which walked away with two awards from 2009’s Sundance Film Festival. Yes, it’s a doco about war-torn Afghanistan, but sitting through this one won’t feel too much like a grim public service. Instead, the film follows four contestants who risk their lives to take part in the country’s debut season of Pop Idol, watched by millions of Afghans. Given more people tend to vote in these shows than chose to vote in national elections, it’s a fascinating way to study the trials of a fledgling democracy.

film never leT Me go \ opens March 31, rated M Never Let Me Go is one of those irritating films that is near-impossible to discuss without spoiling its charm. The beauty of the first third of this strangely genteel film, based on a novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, is that nothing is quite as it seems. We begin in an English boarding school as a charming rites-of-passage tale, before suddenly and brutally taking a left turn. In the novel, this sudden bolt for the bizarre is left wonderfully free of signposts. Here, Alex Garland’s script can’t help giving us a nod and a wink. Still, that’s all you’re getting from us. Almost. The central conceit belongs to that ever-broadening genre pegged as science fiction, but it’s a film that foregrounds the emotional above action and intrigue. Given the lack of spectacle, it might just have one of the smallest effects

budget of any mainstream sci-fi flick. Of course, the effectiveness of the drama depends on how convincing you find its central premise. Part of the problem is the film has an archaic feel, never quite shaking off the beiges of its 1970s beginnings. We can believe daft tales from distant worlds, but in reaching for the past, it leads us to expect a little more depth and reality. The result is a dreamy, airless tale that relies on some extraordinary performances to engage us. \ mykebartlett@gmail.com

Leotards, sequins and tap shoes return to Melbourne this week for the farewell tour of Riverdance. FRANCESCA CARTER catches up with Melbourne-born Liam Ayres, graceful on stage and gracious in conversation.

Spectacular: Riverdance features an international company of brilliant performers (below). (JACK HARTIN\ JOAN MARCUS\ CLARK JAMES MISHLER\ ABHANN PRODUCTIONS)

ehind the stage it’s empty. Dancers wait nervously in the wings. Girls fiddle with their hair extensions, the lead dancer binds microphones to his shoes. Lights down. The curtain rises and 20 shadows, silhouetted against a moonlit backdrop, emerge from smoke. In a staggered line, each of the dancers rolls their head. Quickly they spin around, staring intently ahead. Arms glued to their sides. With the introduction of the Irish fiddle, a synchronised step to the right begins Riverdance – an internationally acclaimed two-hour performance that has changed little since its opening night in Dublin in 1995. While it looks corny, this tightly choreographed performance has secured a place in showbiz history. Created by composer Bill Whelan, producer Moya Doherty and director John McColgan, Riverdance has played more then 10,000 performances in 40 countries. The estimated live audience tops 22 million. Figures in the television version escalated to 2 billion and it has grossed an estimated $1.6 billion. Irish dancer Liam Ayres, now 26, was just 10 years old when he first saw Riverdance. His aunt, Christine Ayres, a professional dancer herself, brought over a video version and the whole family watched it in the living room. Ayres, who had been studying Irish dance since he was five, was enthralled. “I remember watching it and I knew that this is all I wanted to do,” he says. “To see this line of dancers doing something we usually do, but in such a different capacity, was amazing. It made me want to continue Irish dancing to aspire to get into the show.” It’s a beautiful Perth morning on the day that we meet and although it’s only nine o’clock, the sun is strong. Ayres appears nonchalant about the heat – he is relaxed, comfortable. “We just came from touring in South Africa, and that was hot,” he says. “It was such an amazing experience

because the show had never been there before. It was like being back in the original times of show, when we were performing in front of audiences who had never seen it before.” Wearing black jeans and a tight-fitting T-shirt, Ayres has the basic frame of what people go to the gym for – a trim torso and muscular arms. He attributes his physique not to genetics but rather to a rigorous dance program of eight performances a week plus rehearsals and gym sessions. “That is one of the best things about Irish dancing, it keeps you in really good shape,” says Ayres. “You often come back from a break and you’re on stage and you think ‘I can’t get through this’. But after a couple of days you build up your fitness, and the best part is you don’t even know it’s happening.” Ayres has been an esteemed member of the Riverdance company for seven years. For Irish dancers, being welcomed into the Riverdance fold is the pinnacle of their career. While many dancers are scouted, others have to endure a laborious process of sending off videos and awaiting phone calls. “I never actually auditioned for Riverdance. Or at least I didn’t know I was,” he says. “At the time, I was performing for a show called Dance of Desire in Dublin. One morning I woke up to a phone call from Riverdance saying the dance director had been in the audience and they wanted to offer me a place in the company. It was one of those cases of being in the right place at the right time.” As Ayres talks about his extraordinary rise in Irish dancing, there is a shyness about him. He is contemplative and unpretentious, appearing entirely unaffected by the attention he receives as one of Australia’s greatest dancers. He also seems young for his age. Sentences are finished with an inflection and, at times, followed by a boyish giggle. This is an entirely different Ayres to the one on stage

the night before. Performing in the troupe line in Perth’s Burswood Theatre, Ayres was confident and focused. With enormous discipline, he appeared to float across the stage at great speed, all the while engaging in fast foot-entangling steps.

 A

yres was just 19 when he was offered the principal dancing role in Riverdance. It’s a moment he will never forget. “We were in the middle of rehearsal and the dance director came out and said she wanted to talk to me,” he says. “She said ‘Julian (the executive producer) wants to offer you a lead position, would you be interested?’ Of course, I was through the roof. I was 19 and had been in the show for four months, it was so exciting.” Becoming a principal dancer with the Riverdance company is no easy feat and Ayres is not the first to admit the difficulty of learning the complex steps. “We would always rehearse between shows, whenever we could get access to the stage,” he says. “I had to be reviewed three times before I was ready to go. In the Irish summer of 2005, I had two weeks of intensive training with the new dance director. Then it was just perfect timing. One of the leads for the company left, so I started doing the lead in Dublin, before going on to Japan.” It comes as little surprise that Ayres would achieve success at a young age. Born into one of Australia’s biggest dancing dynasties, his late grandmother, Mary Mae, danced as a young girl in Ireland. In 1950 she migrated to Australia with her husband, Bill Ayres, and together they had 11 children, seven of whom continued the link to Irish dancing. Raymond Ayres, Liam’s uncle, opened the Ayres School in the early 1980s. It quickly established itself as one of the country’s most respected dance schools, winning many national and state solo and team titles. Ray was admired for his skilful team choreography and

TALENT ON TAP 20 The weekly review \ march 30, 2011


became a leading exponent of Irish dance in Australia. In 1995, Raymond’s sister, Christine, took over as owner and teacher of the school. Ray gave up the school so he could concentrate on the Australian Irish Dance Company – a corporate event show-group. Based in Essendon, the Christine Ayres School is one of the largest Irish dancing schools in Australia, with more than 120 students. “I definitely got rhythm from my family,” says Ayres. “And, having good rhythm is essential to Irish dancing.” Despite being surrounded by a family of Irish dancers, Ayres says that he was never pushed into the art. “I hated it at the beginning. I couldn’t get the first basic movement. I didn’t go back the next week, I just refused. I eventually did go back to classes and, after a few lessons, I got it.” Before Riverdance, Irish dancing in Australia revolved around competitions. Parents would sign their children up for endless rounds of championships with meticulous rules and regulations. Ayres’s rise in traditional Irish dancing is quite extraordinary. At the age of eight, he entered his first competition and came third. By the time he had finished school, Ayres had won seven Victorian and two Australian titles. “Irish dancing competitions are very entertaining, to say the least. It’s always in your age groups and you do three dances. One in heavy shoes, one in light shoes and if you have enough points, you do one last dance on your own ... people take it very seriously.” Ayres, who also went on to grab a bronze in the world championships in 2003, believes nothing will ever come close to the thrill of performing. He can vividly recall all his high-school performances. “I went to drama school when I was very young and particularly enjoyed musicals like Rent. I sometimes wish there was more acting in the show.”

Passionate: Liam Ayres loves touring the world with the Riverdance company. (FRANCES ANDRIJICH)

LIAM AYRES, NOW 26, WAS JUST 10 YEARS OLD WHEN HE FIRST SAW RIVERDANCE When reflecting on his light-bulb moment, the decision to pursue a career in Irish dancing, Ayres credits his first Riverdance performance in France. “I did my first step on the stage and it was just so surreal. I was performing in this big arena, in front of a huge crowd. I remember actually doing the Riverdance number and the audience just erupted. I thought ‘this is it, I’m good to stay here’. I had gone from a crowd of a few hundred to thousands. And, even though we had rehearsed and done tech checks, it still didn’t compare to when the lights went down backstage and everyone’s lining up in what we call the teepees (the stage entrance, so called because they are triangular in shape) to go out for first number. It was so scary.”

n his seven years at Riverdance, Ayres has endured everything from falling flat on stage to costume malfunctions. He has performed in Europe, Scandinavia, Russia and Taiwan. He has travelled around North America by bus and has been harassed by screaming Japanese fans. “The highlight of my career, actually, of my life has been dancing the lead in Radio City Music Hall. I think it’s every performer’s dream to get to Broadway in New York. And performing in one of the world’s most famous theatres, you can’t get much closer to that.” Ayres says that what made the experience even more special was that his parents, who are always “looking for an excuse to come overseas”, flew over. “Towards the end, I spotted them in the crowd, which was just so special.” While this was an exciting chapter in his life, Ayres believes nothing will compare to performing in his home city this week. “I am performing in the lead role on the performance on Sunday and the entire dance school is coming. It’s a 125 group booking,”he says. “Ten out of my 11 uncles and aunties will be there and a lot of my old school friends. My friends have never seen me perform before. Now they finally get to see what I have been up to,” he says enthusiastically. “It’s going to be the best day, and because it’s only an afternoon performance, I am going to make a real Irish night of it.” Ayres expects to remain with Riverdance until its final performance in Hong Kong. Afterwards, he will return home and begin a new life as an Irish dance instructor. “Just before I left, my aunt made me business cards, which was such a cute little surprise. Being in the show, I have never had a one before,” he says. “Even though I will no longer be touring with Riverdance, Irish dancing is still going to be a major component of my life.” And if his commitment to a successful career transfers to his teaching, then there is little doubt there will be many more Liam Ayres to come. \

Man of action: Renowned surf photographer Jon Frank works and plays at Jan Juc, near Torquay.

Surfing and music have always been natural companions, but a violinist and a photographer have found a new direction, writes STEVE DOW.

J

on Frank flirts with the ocean’s awesome force, often swimming out several hundred metres, flippers on his feet, holding in one hand a waterproof fibreglass case containing his digital SLR and lenses or a video camera. The sea, he muses, is his mistress, and that’s no accidental sexual allegory. “When a wave breaks, it’s a release of energy, isn’t it?” Out of breath on occasion, he has found himself pulled underwater as a wave’s lip kisses its trough. “A lot of times you’re conquering your own fears; jumping into a sea that’s dangerous,” he confides. “Sometimes you know it’s a dangerous situation, but you think the reward’s worth it. It’s not often that I won’t go out, even if I’m a bit worried, a bit scared, a bit hungover; I’ll push through it.” The quiet and solitude match Frank’s tendency to melancholy. He’s a good swimmer, doing his Australian crawl with one arm, though not particularly fit; yes, he couldn’t run more than about 100 metres on land, yet he’s tempted to swim much further to get that one great shot or sequence of a wave. The future snapper began surfing at 14, and photographing the water at 20. He had promised he would quit surf photography at 25, yet here he is, nearly 40, living in Torquay, moments from Jan Juc and Bell’s Beach, the gateway to Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, where limestone cliffs form the coastline. The sea at the bottom

of the world is “gin clear”, he waxes in an Aussie accent that belies his English origins; it’s the colour of a “green bottle filled with white spirits and held to the sun”. Frank has captured the sea and surfers around Australia’s coastline, and from Tahiti to Sumatra, Hawaii to Iceland. Once, alone in the water off Kurnell, south of Sydney, he was bumped by a shark. It didn’t bite him, he says; it was just “having a look”. His sublime work has adorned books, glossy magazines and galleries, as well as documentary feature films. Now they form part of a multimedia concert with violinist Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra called The Glide, a collaboration of music and image. Tognetti says the photographer “has a very keen eye and a very mysterious sort of a talent”, and likens Frank to another photo artist, Bill Henson. Both men’s work is about “hidden things and what you don’t reveal. (Frank) leads you to an interior world, on the one hand, and a great vastness on the other.” The pair met while making the 2008 documentary Musica Surfica, on which Frank was cinematographer; the film starred Tognetti and surfer Derek Hynd as they brought together classical musicians and surfers on King Island. Frank admits to having known little about classical music, but he bonded with Wollongong-raised, Sydney-based Tognetti because they were both surfers. Tognetti says they work closely, assembling footage and

matching it with music, some of which the ACO leader specially composed for The Glide, including The Dream, which “sings gently to the images”. “Richard is not a visual person; he sees the world through music,” says Frank of the virtuoso violinist. “When I show him moving pictures or still photographs, he reacts in an instant manner, a very honest ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to whether it makes him feel something. Richard doesn’t watch TV, and he’s probably not that visually literate, to tell you the truth,” the photographer says, laughing, “which is fantastic.” Jon Frank was born in London, a long way from the ocean. His family migrated to Australia when he was aged 10, and settled in Sydney’s beachside Cronulla. He remembers his first Australian summer, 1981, like a clip from the film Puberty Blues, sitting in the back seat while his father drove the family car to the beach, seeing panel vans, surfie guys with long blond hair and “chicks” wearing bikinis. “It was like I was on another planet,” he says. “I had no idea what surfing was, what beach culture was.” Frank took up surfing at 14 because that was what you did growing up beachside. But he also went from being a gifted student to dropout – or, more to the point, his high school asked him to leave after he gained his year 10 certificate. “I was distracting other kids, being a smart-arse and not taking school seriously.” He ended up working the 11pm-7am shift in a soy factory, shovelling sludge and loading seed into hoppers and sacks of salt and malt into vats, so he could catch waves during the day. His epiphany came when he landed a job in a chaotic and cluttered local camera shop. Frank was drawn to the floor-to-ceiling glass shelves of the display window, filled with second-hand camera bodies and lenses, filters, flashes and light meters. He’d cock the shutters and focus the old Nikons, Canons and Hasselblads. Film was kept in two large refrigerators with glass doors; his bosses were serious about the craft. One of his jobs was to convert customers’ Super 8 films to

video, so he spent many hours in intimate viewings of private family films on Kodachrome. Frank had found a new window on the world, and a purpose. The first thing he started photographing was waves, minus the surfers. He’d hone his craft at the beach body-packed Cronulla, but his work would also take him to live for long periods in isolated spots, including a tin shack on a rainforest property he eventually bought at Eaglehawk Neck, a narrow isthmus connecting the Tasman Peninsula to mainland Tasmania. In recent years he’s spent “quite a few winters there on my own, probably drinking too much and thinking too much,” he says. He’s been back in Torquay for two years now. His son Hugo, 13, who’s “into skateboarding and thinks dad’s not that cool”, lives with him, while daughter Tulasi, 15, lives nearby with her mother. Frank introduced each of his children to surfing when they turned five. “They’ve both shown an interest in photography, but I don’t know if I’m really in a position to recommend a career as a surf photographer,” he admits. “Let’s face it, it’s a pretty uphill battle to survive. There’s a pretty high incidence, really, of mental illness and depression among my colleagues. “That sounds like I’m joking, but it’s not really a joke. It’s an unusual profession.” Has he encountered those personal pitfalls? “I’ve had my own obstacles through my life, with my marriage breakdown. I think my liver’s probably not as healthy as it could be; after a

day’s surfing you have a beer, but I think I probably drink too much, or I used to. “I’ve never had any clinical depression. I think; if anything, I just suffer from a little bit of melancholy.” Frank says other surf photographers through the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s went off the rails because of the lifestyle, including the use of illicit drugs during that period. Today, Frank savours the effect of the southern-altitude light; how the cloud cover can suddenly crack as the sun sets to reveal a clear horizon, allowing incredible light to shine for a minute or two, giving the water colour and texture. Naturally, the sea makes Frank reflect on the bigger picture of spirituality; he’s not a religious person, he says, “but it would be fair to say I believe in something. I believe in intuition, and there’s a lot that we can’t explain rationally.” He’s found a kindred spirit in Tognetti, who finds surfing spiritual too but “hates” religion – “so many people are masquerading as lost souls”, says the musician. Most recently the pair has been collaborating on a fledgling new music and image work firmly based on the ground, examining the nature of crowds, which Frank hopes the Australian Chamber Orchestra will also tour. It’s a harbinger, perhaps, of the day when the photo artist finally stops swimming out and shooting the waves and surfers. “There’s a generation of surf photographers before me still shooting,” he says. “But I find it hard to believe I’m going to be walking down the beach with a camera when I’m 50 or 60, swimming out and taking pictures. “This is crazy, this can’t be my life’s work, can it? … Sometimes I think, ‘Man, you’re nearly 40, you’ve got to try something else’.” \

Leaving her glamourous ‘life for one’ in Sydney’s Darlinghurst, she set about creating la dolce vita of a fashion photographer in Italy. Now located in Paris, Comme flew Carla to Australia to speak of her amazing life journey and share in the emotion of her travels. Wearing her heart on her sleeve, Carla endeared herself to the audience, who were able to relate to her experiences. In collaboration with Toni Maticevski, Edwina McCann and Angie Rehe, the night was a celebration of people living their dream and working in an industry that they feel passionate about. An amazing night that wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of Comme’s corporate partners, including Nick Rieve the man who captured the essence of the evening, via the wonderful images included in this article. www.nickrieve.com

the world is her roster CherYl CritChleY talks to a geography teacher who has literally lived her subject.

F

ew teachers have lived their subject like Cleo Westhorpe. The Melbourne Girls Grammar School geography specialist has travelled to China five times, visited farming communities in India and spent 18 months working on cultural projects in Vanuatu. And she’s only 32. The 2007 Vanuatu posting was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the young Melbourne teaching graduate and her husband, Roger Turner, who taught at the international school. Westhorpe worked at Vanuatu’s cultural centre and museum, a beautiful, big, traditional building on the hill in the centre of Port Vila. They lived in a small rented house in Pango Village, which had electricity but no TV or internet. None of that mattered. “It was very calming,” Westhorpe says. “What a place to live – a tropical island, swimming every day in the bay, seeing dugongs and snorkelling. No McDonald’s. There was a tropical reef 20 metres from our backyard, so we’d just wander down and go for a snorkel or spend time just ‘storian’ (telling stories) with our ni-Van neighbours.” Westhorpe went to Noumea under the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade-funded Australian Youth Ambassador for Development program, which paid a volunteer stipend of about $1200 a month. She helped organise a film festival and several exhibitions, then extended the stay by six months to run a series of UNESCO initiatives to protect the indigenous cultural art of sand drawing. “Mostly the drawings are done in the sand and when the next wave washes up, it washes away the evidence,” Westhorpe says. “They’re completed by using the finger to make a pattern in the sand, often with one continuous cursive line, and often there’s a story or perhaps a song to accompany it, or perhaps a message. “It has been a very important way of sharing tribal knowledge, ideas, morals, values. They still do it. Because of this UNESCO project, it’s recognised that it’s an art form, and it’s a cultural heritage that’s endangered.” The project produced a film, website and a five-day sand-drawing festival on West Ambrym Island, which attracted 200 people from many of Vanuatu’s 80 islands. Such success is typical of Westhorpe’s can-do attitude to life and teaching. Since joining Melbourne Girls Grammar School in 2009, Westhorpe has used her many adventures to create a dynamic and hands-on geography program. If her students need to know about China, she can show them slides from her trips and talk about her experiences. Being able to speak Mandarin, for example, which Westhorpe studied at university, has led to some memorable encounters with locals. “How do they react? Just with delight and giggles,” Westhorpe says. “In some places you go where it’s really sort of off the beaten track, to be able to converse to somebody in their language, it’s just … a wonderful thing to be able to do. “That’s the beauty of teaching geography because not only do you have the physical geography but the human geography is also so important. I teach a wonderful subject in Year 10 called Perspectives of Asia, which allows me to indulge in my passion for the Asian region. To be able to share what it’s like but also to ignite an interest in the girls to make their own ways there at some point in their life (is amazing).” Geography has come a long way from the days when students monitored weather patterns and studied grainy pictures of Kalahari Bushmen in dusty old books. These days they are just as likely to travel to the country they are studying, or visit a park or beach to learn about its ecology. 24 The weekly review \ march 30, 2011

Worldwide web of intrigue: Melbourne Girls Grammar School Year 8 co-ordinator and geography teacher Cleo Westhorpe. (Shannon MorriS)

As part of Perspectives of Asia, MGGS Year 10 students will travel to Vietnam and Cambodia for two weeks over Easter. The trip, started by retired teacher Joy Mawbey and “still in its early years”, has links with Cambodia’s Salvation Centre for children who have lost one or both parents to AIDS. In Cambodia, Westhorpe and her students hope to present $1000 to the Salvation Centre and $1000 to buy uniforms for children at a Siem Reap school dubbed “The Dump School”. “There’s 400 children who attend and it’s on the fringes of the rubbish dump,” Westhorpe says. “In Cambodia there’s legislation that if a student doesn’t have a uniform they can’t attend school. It’s like their passport to go to class. A uniform costs between $4 and $5 to make.” When she started at MGGS it was Westhorpe’s first full-time teaching job. But her life experience was already rich and varied, and provided plenty of inspiration for her teaching.

“Learning’s not confined to a room With 20 chairs and desks.”

She hit the ground running, becoming Year 7 co-ordinator after just six months. Now Year 8 co-ordinator, she felt at home in this historic school from day one. MGGS was founded in 1893 by two spirited women, Emily Hensley and Alice Taylor, whose legacy of independent quality education for girls has created the perfect environment for strong women such as Westhorpe. As this young dynamo chats animatedly in the school’s traditional high-ceilinged board room, you can just imagine Miss Hensley and Miss Taylor nodding their approval from above. Her intelligent brown eyes brimming with enthusiasm, Westhorpe clearly loves MGGS and what it offers her students. What she doesn’t say is how important it is for teachers such as her to bring the place to life, no matter how beautiful the buildings – in this case sitting opposite Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens – or how wonderful the facilities. In Westhorpe’s case she quickly gained a reputation as a passionate environmentalist, inspired by her travels and the need to look after our own back yard. Among her early achievements was ridding the staffroom of Styrofoam cups. Westhorpe was instrumental in reviving the school’s environment committee and is helping ensure it commits to the Sustainable Schools 5-Star Program. She had the school audited by Planet Savers, established SWIG (Sustainability Working Interest Group) for staff and students to reduce the school’s carbon footprint, and helped ensure MGGS signed the Australian

Sustainable Schools Initiative (AuSSI Vic). Since she started, the school has also installed 100,000-litre water tanks and now has environment captains on its student executive council. Westhorpe insists others deserve credit for these achievements, and she is “certainly not the only one”. But her list of initiatives is impressive. One project for the Kids off the Curb group involved a Save Our Souls shoe drive, which collected 750 pairs of shoes to donate to communities in Iraq and West Africa. Last year Westhorpe also worked with the canteen’s catering company to introduce meat-free “Veggie Days” each term. The vegetarian menu helps reduce the school’s carbon footprint and encourages students to consider having a vegetarian day at least once a week. Her latest project involved helping to secure a National Solar Schools Project grant of almost $30,000 to install solar panels at the school. “We’ve just had the funding approved,” she says. “We all worked hard to pull it together. (It’s) very exciting.” One potential drawback of combining such passion for geography and the environment is a growing reputation around the school as “the carbon police”. Westhorpe is known to remind others to turn down the air-conditioner or switch the lights off if she thinks it will make a difference. It is all taken in good humour and has helped reduce the school’s carbon footprint. “I’ve become a little bit of an environment police (officer),” she says laughing. “(They say) ‘I didn’t have it on for long, I promise’. Sometimes they need a face to be accountable to. If I’m the bad guy around energy use then I’m happy to do that.”

I

t is hard to imagine that such a passionate teacher did not always want to be in a classroom. Despite an intense curiosity about life and cultures around the world, Westhorpe did not consider teaching until she had finished her Melbourne University double degree in Commerce and Arts. She had initially toyed with journalism but decided to do “something much more broad”. Westhorpe’s mother, Margot, has since retired and completed a PhD. She also paints. “She never stays still, always seeking out the next challenge,” Westhorpe says. Her father Rod is a semi-retired doctor. He is still busy running The Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History and was a Royal Children’s Hospital anaesthetist for many years. At university, Westhorpe majored in geography, Chinese and marketing. After finishing her five-year degree in 2001, a marketing career beckoned … and quickly disappeared. “I worked in marketing for a year at a printing company,” Westhorpe says. “It was too sales oriented. I missed talking to people. The only engagement I had with people was trying to sell them something and it felt so unauthentic that it just felt like it was eating away at me.” It was a learning experience. Westhorpe discovered that while she was fascinated by people and how they arrived at certain decisions, she did not want to sell them anything. She then worked at an e-learning company, managing its day-to-day operations, while studying another degree in Chinese medicine. That degree remains unfinished, but contributed to the lifelong fascination with China she shares with her mother. In 2006 Turner, who had studied sociology and anthropology, decided to return to university to become a teacher. The light bulb went off for his wife,


who decided to do the same. From the day of her first teaching round, Westhorpe was hooked. “I remember my first placement and it was just like I was back at home being in the classroom,” she says. One of her first classes was a group of disruptive Year 7 boys with a literacy level of grade four. She relished the challenge: “It was great. We were learning about ancient Egypt and so we created our own sarcophagus and a crypt and … did a lot of hands-on stuff and they really loved it and I loved it.” But Westhorpe was not quite ready to settle down, opting to take up the Vanuatu challenge. Before she returned home from that trip in 2008, she and Turner also spent three months travelling through China and India, spending what little savings they had. “We managed to pilfer away a few cents here or there and we just blew the lot on our travels,” she says laughing. Westhorpe and Turner, who met through their love of music, married soon after returning from overseas. They held the ceremony at CERES in Brunswick, a place “very dear to our hearts. A hotbed of sustainability, beautiful vegetable and native gardens, all sprouting on a reclaimed rubbish tip,” Westhorpe says. “The recycling and renewal seems to be a major theme in our lives!”

S

ince joining MGGS Westhorpe hasn’t looked back, and with her colleagues has helped raise geography’s profile at the school. It recently included the subject in its new Department of Global Connections, which also includes business, commerce and legal studies. Does this mean the subject is now officially “sexy”? “Our department’s working hard towards that,” Westhorpe says. “We can reflect what’s happening in the real world into our little classroom environment. In Year 9 we’ve got a subject called Enviro Watch and we’ve been concentrating on looking at the health of the bay and rivers and the ecosystems that depend on them. “We looked at the outfall that’s still in operation down at Boags Rocks. It’s just next to Gunnamatta Beach. 450,000 megalitres of … effluent is pumped out each day. And so we took the girls on an excursion. We swim with the dolphins in the morning and look at the marine ecosystem around Sorrento within Port Phillip Bay and then we go and have a tour with the Clean Ocean Foundation of the outfall and hear about Old girls some of its impacts. Kitty Chiller “In response to that the girls write a letter to Stephanie McIntosh their local member or a minister to share their Sally Walker concern about a particular issue that they feel Caroline Wilson connected to. It’s to teach them they’ve got a » P27 voice.” With so many projects on the go, including teaching yoga to her students, it is amazing Westhorpe finds any time for herself or Turner. Luckily he is also a teacher so they understand each other’s passion. “I go home and often I’m spending nights and at least a day on the weekend preparing,” she says. “(But) I really enjoy planning new lessons and experiences for the girls. It’s also a learning experience for me before I bring it into the classroom.” In the classroom, when she is not weaving in her many observations and experiences, Westhorpe loves taking her students to where the action is. “Tomorrow I’m taking my Year 10 girls … to see an exhibition of Japanese anime,” she says. “We’re taking them out to a Japanese lunch. There’s a whole world out there. Geography’s fabulous for integrating anything that’s going on in the world. Learning’s not confined to a room with 20 chairs and desks.” \

T

he biggest flower show in Melbourne, and some would say in the Southern Hemisphere, gets under way at the end of this month. The 16th Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, held at the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens is a five-day extravaganza expected to draw more than 100,000 visitors to its 500-plus exhibits. Now think of all the to-ing and fro-ing of this throng and you get an idea of the traffic that an event such as this generates. Think of the trips the exhibitors make to set up their gardens or stalls, to stock them with plants and produce, and you get an idea of the mileage involved. Then think of the time it takes to get plants ready for show, and the mileage is extended to cover time and distance. There is more to a flower show than just a pretty display. Take another big event on the gardening calendar – the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show in London – and you will see what I mean. For the first time, there will be two Australian entries at Chelsea. One is The Trailfinder’s Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s Nursery and the other is The Australian Garden presented by Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. The Trailfinder’s entry is Wes Fleming’s seventh foray into the fray with the juggernauts of the gardening world. The RBG, on the other hand, sets out on a maiden voyage. Both groups this month have sent container-loads of materials and equipment to London for unpacking in May. Their trips started way back before Christmas last year when plans were submitted to the Royal Horticultural Society in excruciating detail; plans that must be followed to the letter when the gardens are installed in May. Plants would have had to be sourced months in advance and grown in European nurseries so they are picture perfect when they make the trip to

SHOWTIME! London. Inevitable accidents also mean that there have to be loads of spare plants and trees. When Fleming’s presented its 2011 Chelsea plans in November last year, designer Ian Barker noted that “it has taken me 450 hours to get to this point, before Wes even approved my design”. Not many know of the time, the pressure, stress or emotion that goes into putting together a show for Chelsea, he said. Garden shows are not for the faint-hearted. Exhibitors

have to spend the time, make the distance and spend good money to get their shows on the road. Think of it as a precarious journey that horticulturists take to get their industry on the world map. You don’t always have to go to the big shows to find people who are mapping out such journeys, however. At the Gardening and Rare Plants Expo held from March 19-20, Martin Farrugia, who owns the Candybell nursery in Erica, spoke of his efforts to develop tissue-cultured crinum lilies and tuberous begonia for sale in Australia and overseas. Tissue culture is a good way to get enough plants for a big market, Farrugia says, especially for plants that require labour-intensive propagation. The tissue-cultured hybrid crinums should be on the Australian market this spring while the begonias would have just started on their tissue-culture journey (in China) on Monday, March 21, preparing to make their debut both here and in America when they are ready. “We have among the best begonias in the world,” says Farrugia. “I hope, soon, the world will sit up and notice.” And that, in a way, is what flower shows are about. They are part of a journey to display what Australian horticulturists are capable of. The road is long and we can only wish them a smooth trip. \

ALIVE WITH ALLURE Development Group’s latest apartment Pace offering sits midway between St Kilda’s trendy Fitzroy Street and Chapel Street, giving

apartment purchasers the best of both worlds. Its location on Wellington Street, St Kilda, also makes it an attractive proposition for commuters who want a city lifestyle without being in the CBD. Pace is a fully integrated development company that has been building quality bayside developments since the early ’90s from planning and design right through to construction. Its latest project, this 77-apartment development, has a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments with a big emphasis on lifestyle space, according to Damon Krongold, director of Beller Project Marketing, which is handling off-the-plan sales for Pace. “Apartments are typically 80 square metres internally with balconies of up to 36 square metres offering residents large, open-plan living areas and bedrooms much bigger than found in many new developments,” he says. With a choice of two interior colour schemes, the apartments have clean contemporary lines, spacious kitchens with European appliances and double sinks. Bathrooms feature Rogerseller tapware and fittings, a frameless shower and tiles throughout. Bedrooms are carpeted and living areas have hardwood timber floors. Melbourne is about to be home to a swag of buildings wrapped with screens – Portait, with its sculpted façade of Aboriginal leader William Barak, Luna’s “living façade” and Wrap in Southbank are a few that spring to mind. Pace has followed the trend with Allure – a butterfly screen façade wraps much of the building. Pace architect Michael Holla says the façade was inspired by the area’s rich history of art and design. “The butterflies are all in flight providing an instant sense of life, while giving the building a different persona at night when they are back-lit by apartment and balcony lighting,” he says. The façade also provides shelter on the building’s balconies. Construction is expected to start in June or July and Pace hopes to complete the project by November next year. \

A city lifestyle outside the CBD

lifestyle

Apartment purchasers have easy access to St Kilda’s restaurants and the nearby St Kilda Beach as well as some of Melbourne’s best shopping in Chapel Street and Toorak road. Prahran Market, with its wide range of fruit and vegetable stalls as well as excellent delicatessens, is a short drive or tram ride from the development, as are supermarkets, banks, pharmacies and a range of other shops. For the athletically inclined, Prahran Pool and the St Kilda sea baths are nearby, and Albert Park Lake with sports ovals, tennis courts and a five-kilometre walking/jogging track, public golf course and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, an international-class swimming and sports facility, is within easy walking distance. Four city-bound trams depart from the nearby junction of Dandenong and St Kilda roads and Melbourne, Monash, rMIT and Swinburne universities can be easily reached by public transport.

DOGS KEEP

(ISTOCKPHOTO / THINKSTOCK)

The RSPCA’s new canine accommodation has all the bells and whistles, writes SARAH DAILEY.

34 The weekly review \ march 30, 2011

THE NEW YORK TIMES  recently reported on Chaser, a verbose border collie

believed to possess the largest known vocabulary of any dog; a grasp of 1022 nouns. This skill was learnt in daily backyard training sessions with her diligent owner, John, and raises the question, are domestic dogs simply a result of their environment? If so, the four-legged tenants at the RSPCA’s recently refurbished Burwood East complex are in for a better shot at life. This ongoing RSPCA redevelopment is the result of a particularly benevolent bequest and some serious international kennel research. The lodgings for dogs are multistorey, the kind of medium-density housing not always embraced in Melbourne’s suburbs. But for dogs, these apartment-like living quarters are state of the art — the first fully enclosed, naturally ventilated, and day-lit dog kennel buildings in the world. Made up of 200 individual quarantine kennels, this doggy high-rise employs advanced temperature control and high air changes to keep the tenants cosy, utilising passive solar and wind design. The structure is built from recycled content – precast concrete cladding – which is locally produced, and was selected for its thermal properties and lifespan. The developer behind stage one of the project, NH Architecture, has won the Australian Institute of Architects Award for Sustainable Architecture twice.


QUIET ABOUT NEW DIGS Last year it won for the six-star green-rated Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, after winning in 2008 for its innovative design on this RSPCA project. Peter Dredge, project principal at NH Architecture, says his company tries to embody environmental principles into all its projects. “We do not believe that sustainability is optional to good design,” he says. Catherine Scullin, project manager with the RSPCA, says the goal for the new complex was to maximise comfort for the animals and create a functional and safe workplace for staff, as well as minimise environmental reliance and reduce waste, water and energy. The site is now RSPCA Victoria’s head office and its largest animal welfare centre. On site is a veterinary clinic and hospital, temporary accommodation for dogs, cats and rabbits, as well as livestock holding facilities and an education centre. The entire site has utilised ecologically sustainable developments, with the dog kennel buildings being the most remarkable. Even though many Melbourne architects have mastered sustainable designs in businesses or homes, creating accommodation for dogs requires a different approach. “Dogs require a minimum number of air changes per hour to minimise disease transfer and to ensure comfortable conditions,” says Dredge. Therefore, instead of leaving the dogs outside, or using industrial air-conditioning units and running up huge electricity bills, the five individual two-storey

buildings are ventilated by natural means – without any power-assisted fans. “A system of natural convection is employed to draw air in from the south over the dogs, and then is discharged through the heat stacks on the north. This is due to the air being heated by the sun and the Venturi effect of wind creating a pressure difference between the top of the towers and the interior,” Dredge says. After a warm day the vents open and discharge the warm air, or “night purge” when there is insufficient temperature difference to create the convective flow of air. In winter, in-slab hydronic pipes are used for heating. According to Dredge, this system of cooling was historically used by desert dwellers, and as a principle can be adapted to any size building as long as there is a commitment to ecologically sustainable development. To make the lodgings even more exceptional, each kennel features an air-inlet vent that allows smells to migrate from the back of each kennel to exhaust ducts distributed across the front of the building. This minimises the spread of germs and smells, which reduces stress on the dogs. For added comfort, each kennel is oriented to receive sunlight year-round, with each puppy treated to a courtyard view. Scullin says that as well as guaranteeing animal comfort and energy reductions, water consumption was the next major focus for the redevelopment, as

this is where the not-for-profit organisation saw major opportunities for improvements. Water use on-site has already been reduced by a third, with further reductions to follow when a subsurface wetland filtration system is completed by an external developer in 2012. She believes that the dogs’ new digs are absolutely state of the art from an environmental point of view. “I don’t believe there were any other technologies available that would have made the facility more environmentally friendly.” Scullin says the most amazing thing about this redevelopment is the clever incorporation of animal welfare, environmental sustainability and improved staff operating facilities. “All three were incorporated into a single coherent design without compromising each element.” And, perhaps most importantly, Scullin says the dogs enjoy their eco-friendly homes. Barking has been noticeably reduced since the shift indoors, which surely makes the neighbours happy, too. Finally, a win for high-rise living, the community and the environment. \ sarahdailey84@gmail.com

he crowd was big – and it wasn’t even match day. In footy parlance this was just a training run, a bit of an early outing. Inevitably, though, there were certain players among the 160 people who inspected this sumptuous house in one of Armadale’s premier streets keen to get involved in the pre-match encounter. They lingered longer, asked more questions and looked at home on the lounges by the swimming pool. The big day for this glamorous house will be Monday, April 11, when expressions of interest close. It is tipped to sell for more than $8 million. Set on 1784 square metres, the stunning property with enormous gardens, a swimming pool and yoga pavilion is an exceptionally large parcel of land for Armadale. An art deco house, it has broad windows with horizontal accents and three upper-level balconies punctuate the front. Sydney landscape designer Anthony Wyer redesigned the gardens at great cost,

which included removing one swimming pool and building a new one in another part of the back garden. In the front, massed plantings of gardenias and formal raised beds of Chinese star jasmine around significant trees should ensure heavenly perfume. A ornamental pool on the northern side of the garden is another feature, as are the topiary balls. Cream bougainvillea is being trained to climb up a front wall of the house. In this modern design there is no place for the traditional lawn or old-fashioned flowerbeds. It is all about green, symmetry and flashes of colour from crimson crepe myrtles in giant planter pots. Sydney designer Marco Meneguzzi has transformed the interior in spectacular fashion. He retained many original features such as the gently curved staircase, the etched-glass window on the landing and the open fireplace in the formal living room. The formal rooms could cope with any type of gathering, from cocktail party to elaborate dinner or musical soirée. The formal living room on one side of the entry hall extends to

On the other side of the entry hall, a music room features dramatic charcoal-painted walls and a white ceiling. It leads to a reading room. All front rooms have views over the garden from multipaned windows. In the centre of the house, the dining room looks into a temperature-controlled wine room. The family hub of the house occupies a long wing overlooking the back and side gardens. It is all travertine marble flooring, vast benches and every imaginable stainless steel European appliance. The butler’s pantry off the kitchen has its own dishwasher and fridge and door to the wine room. Two island benches separate the cooking zone from the meals area, which comfortably holds a very large table. The room then extends to the family living space with french doors on either side of the fireplace in the far wall.

Back inside again, the gracious staircase leads to the first floor, which is made up of five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main bedroom at the front has double doors to its own balcony. There is also a door to a dressing room as well as a walk-in wardrobe that leads to an en suite with designer glass tiles and glazed finishes.

Save for the original exterior and some period features, this house has had a total reconstruction. Its unassuming front hides an out-of-this-world rear extension. The formal lounge has an ornate tiled fireplace and the front bedroom retains original features. Another bedroom with a built-in wardrobe is upstairs. A home theatre is opposite a study and then it’s down a few steps to the glorious addition. A sky-lit kitchen has stainless steel Miele appliances, a wine cabinet and CaesarStone benchtops. The meals and family room has Bose surround sound, a gas fireplace and glass concertina doors to outside. Here a built-in undercover barbecue and a decked dining area leads to the salt-chlorinated, solar-heated pool and spa. Off the family room is the main bedroom, with his and hers walk-through wardrobes to a luxury en suite with open shower and another bedroom. The three-car garage has plenty of storage. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

Down a few steps, the new addition is warm and inviting, and in the kitchen Calacatta marble benchtops, Ilve and Miele stainless steel appliances add to the luxury. The open-plan meals area and adjoining family room with fireplace open to the outdoor deck and dining area through sliding doors. A small in-ground pool and landscaped gardens surround the deck.

A great location and a beautiful street are just the beginning of the appeal of this classy residence. Its outstanding accommodation is made up of three or four bedrooms – one bedroom could be a study – and formal and informal living areas. Two bedrooms have en suites, while the main bedroom at the front has a full-width balcony. The two bedrooms at the rear of the first floor share a balcony. This townhouse has high ceilings and is ideal for entertaining. The paved courtyard is close to the kitchen, making entertaining easy. The open-plan kitchen/meals/family area opens to the courtyard. Vast bench space and gleaming stainless steel appliances and splashback complete the kitchen. The basement fourcar garage and storage room can be accessed internally. The main bedroom features a large dressing area/walk-in wardrobe plus an en suite with twin basins. This superb property radiates quality and prestige. \ TOM HYWOOD

Light and space are natural partners and at this contemporary property they come together in perfect harmony. Large living areas are linked to big outdoor courtyards that allow natural light to flood the interiors. Minimalism, another attribute here in abundance, begins in the front garden, where artificial grass is bordered by a row of silver birch trees. It continues inside, where huge sliding doors hide significant storage cabinets and large glazed doors allow the outside to merge with the inside. The main bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe and study are at the front of the house. A large dining room with doors to a courtyard creates an indoor/outdoor aspect, and the living room on the other side of a hall provides another generous living area. Zoned living works well for a family and is another feature of this house. The front of the house could be for the parents. The family hub of sleek kitchen and meals area, bathroom, laundry and two bedrooms are grouped together in the rear half of the house. Bi-fold glass doors open the kitchen and informal living zone to the courtyard garden and pool. Upstairs, two more bedrooms share a bathroom, but there is also a large retreat with a wall of concealed cabinets on this level. \ MARIA HARRIS

NERVOUS NELLIES CREATE AN IDEAL BUYER’S MARKET Easing, PRICES  Market Cooling, Buyer’s Market

– the headlines are all saying much the same thing. But what does it mean for you as a buyer? Well, if you’re a glass-half-empty kind of person, the pessimist buyer, it means you’ll probably do nothing. You’ll convince yourself that if clearance rates are dropping, as they did last week in Bayside, that means there is a problem, something is wrong, and it’s best not to make a move until you’re sure it’s safe to go back into the water. But if you’re a glass-half-full sort of person, the optimist buyer, you’ll be thinking: opportunity! Lower prices, reduced competition and more choice! Because this current market is exactly the kind you want. It’s a market that is easing slightly because of a glut of stock (choice of supply) and because of reduced competition from nervous buyers who have decided it’s time to sit on their hands (dampened demand). It’s not like the GFC market, which was a bit too extreme for even us optimists to operate in. Buyers of quality homes don’t actually like a very negative market for extended periods of time because it means

quality sellers go back into their shells, and that creates a shortage of good-quality family homes. Also, large price drops are usually an indication of troubled times in the wider community, such as tighter bank lending, dubious job prospects and so on. Those kinds of actual economic concerns have a real effect on the ability of even optimistic buyers to buy quality homes. That’s not what we’re seeing now. What we’re seeing now is a drop in demand caused by nervousness. Which makes for an ideal buyer’s market. In Boroondara, buyers are also benefiting from the added factor of a reduction in demand from the Chinese market because of tighter controls, a much stronger dollar and, admittedly, because of the sense from afar that we are fully priced. That’s created the best opportunity in two years to buy a new house in the area. In the land of the French Provincial – Balwyn and surrounds – there are literally a dozen new houses in the $3 million-plus price bracket. Their asking prices may have eased somewhat after a number of failed auctions, but they are still well above 2009 prices and well above what the market is prepared to pay now. But to get these homes at a good market price you are going to need to be aggressive

SOLD FOR $1.66 MILLION 11 Primrose Street, Prahran

in mind – not necessarily in voice – to negotiate a significant discount to the current above-market prices. To buy these houses at fair market price in today’s currency, you will need to have a good strategy: you’ll need to have honest and open communication; you’ll need to have patience; and you’ll also need the mettle to withstand the struggle involved in negotiating a significant lowering of price. Eventually, if there is nothing else coming in, sellers will have to consider sensible, well-thought-out offers. Sure, a number of builders may be able to rent out one or two of their projects. But eventually they’ll need a cash injection, and for that they’ll require a sale. This is not unfair negotiation, it is simply responding to the

current market environment. (Trust me, if the market was strong, builders would not be freezing their prices.) This is a good market to buy into because, while in the past you may have been beaten by an expat, a foreign buyer or a madman with oodles of bank credit, in this market – with sellers easing, reduced competition and yourself in a strong financial position – you can make big changes to your life just by making some clever little tweaks in your strategy. So, if you are a low debt-holder, a doctor, a lawyer, a stable businessman, in need of a lovely period house, crack open the expensive bubbly (saving the cheaper stuff for the freeloaders that come around after you have bought). It just might be the time to buy that classic in Toorak, the one near the village, with good light and that exquisite 1920s feel. The market until Easter is looking like a good one for buyers and you just may find your dream house now – if you look, and act.

At the end of a quiet cul-de sac stands this English-style manor with classic features and a sense of formality. This substantial property also has a lawn tennis court. Built in the 1930s with Timboon limestone, the seamless extension, done in 1999, uses limestone from the same quarry. The huge formal sitting room at the front has a marble fireplace and a bay window. The formal dining room opens on to a paved area. A conservatory houses a family room and chef’s kitchen with stainless steel Gaggenau appliances. French doors open to a large outdoor dining area. Upstairs, the main bedroom has an adjoining dressing room, walk-in wardrobes and a luxurious en suite. Two bedrooms have built-in desks, while another (originally the maid’s quarters) has its own retreat, walkthrough wardrobe, en suite and balcony. Outdoors is a solar-heated pool surrounded by English-style gardens. A four-car garage has slab heating, a gym, plenty of storage and a bathroom. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN
