A LIFE OF DISTINCTION

A LIFE OF DISTINCTION

ON PERSPECTIVE

ON QUALITIES

ON SOCIETY & CULTURE

Bates Smart design directors Roger Poole and Jeff Copolov are dedicated to prestigious residential and commercial projects. For these architects, The Capitol is an extraordinary opportunity to create unique, distinguished homes as part of an urban sanctuary and for the first time, to give an iconic location the enduring landmark building it deserves.

No other Melbourne address is replete with such riches: the world has come to you. South Yarra hums with the energy of its eclectic inhabitants. Their creations – culinary, artistic, retail – ensure fulfilment in a myriad of forms. Let the neighbourhood guide you to indulgence and enrichment.

Sometimes the best way to see how far you’ve come is to gaze upon far horizons. Many aspects of this view will never change: that the outlook is sweeping, the light inspiring, that everyone else is somewhere down there. But other elements are in constant flux: the play of clouds and sky, naturally, but also the way the view strikes you. The world out there is shared but the perspective is yours alone.

A LIFE OF DISTINCTION

THE CAPITOL LIFE THE CAPITOL SOUTH YARRA IS A TRUE CONFLUENCE OF GREAT ARCHITECTURE AND SUPERIOR LIVING. IT SETS A NEW STANDARD IN PREMIUM APARTMENT DWELLINGS FOR MELBOURNE’S DISCERNING CITIZENS. THE LOCATION IS COMPELLING AT THE JUNCTION OF TWO OF THE CITY’S MOST SIGNIFICANT STREETS, WITH ACCESS TO ALL THE SHOPPING, DINING AND CULTURAL EXPERIENCES THE NEIGHBOURHOOD OFFERS. THE CAPITOL RESIDENCES ARE SPACIOUS, WITH SUPERB DESIGNER APPOINTMENTS AND SWEEPING CITY AND BAY VIEWS. THESE HOMES OFFER THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF AMENITY AND SERVICE IN A LANDMARK BUILDING OF GREAT CHARACTER AND INTEREST.

ON SERVICE In the past, you checked in to a luxury hotel to receive the service that’s now part of everyday life. Maintenance, repair, the inevitable waiting: these are no longer your concern. The mundanities of the domestic sphere are taken care of seamlessly and without stress, giving you more time in every day. Now, life is for living.

ON SPACE A home is defined by the space it occupies; it distinguishes itself through its dimensions. The Capitol residences are generously proportioned: their flowing spaces, high ceilings and expansive outlooks are evident to all. Yet each resident will make of their space what they will, finding their own nooks and intimate zones in a setting of gentle yet persuasive grandeur.

LANDMARK

THE LOBBY

Home is a place to replenish, a haven that restores. Comfort, calm and beauty are a given but a true home promises more. It’s a place for intimate moments, a private zone to slow down and reconnect; your drink in your chair, your outlook, your time. It is a sanctuary, responsive, expansive and generous, a place to unwind, to simply and joyfully be.

Residents have access to a gymnasium, pool, club lounge and elevated gardens that offer a calm contrast to the energetic neighbourhood below. Sundecks connect the outdoors to a dramatic pool pavilion which extends beyond the tower’s perimeter contributing to an atmosphere of calm contemplation.

The Capitol makes an unrepeatable contribution to the urban fabric of South Yarra. The residential tower is elliptical, ensuring light and shadows play across its surface. The design creates an elegant, slender composition of forms that defines the location and character of the development. The building is dynamic, almost ephemeral: whenever it’s viewed, it is seen anew.

The lobby welcomes residents and their visitors with its distinguished yet intimate chambers and a 24-hour concierge. Amenities and design elements that define The Capitol are evident here. The warm timber panels that line the lobby are the first hint of the timber features that enliven individual apartments. A residential parlour with a fireplace and library is a serene space to meet, talk and enjoy.

VIRGINIA TRIOLI\ LOOK BACK IN HORROR

 M

y friend’s eyes widened like an owl watching a horror movie: “Everything’s just awful, isn’t it? I mean, it’s all just gone to hell!”. It hasn’t, of course. But I know what she means. You can’t say it often enough, can you? What a year. What a bloody year. This publication turns one this edition, and in reflecting on the 12 months during which the magazine came to life, I’m surprised that anything could survive and flourish. Political leaders were slain and defeated (and with them went the last vestiges of faith and trust of many Australian voters); young people stood up to old despots and were gunned down for their impudence; markets crashed and communities drowned; the earth trembled and the seas surged. Very little seemed to stay in its place. So much changed. Has it all gone to hell? I think some dearly held articles of faith perhaps have. That a well-intentioned and peaceful revolution only calling for individual freedom and hope will cow the craven tyrant; that’s gone. That the most sophisticated societies on earth can prepare for and defend against the simple terrors of water, rain and fire: no faith there any more. This time has surely left us feeling more child-like than ever before; that we are at the whim of forces, natural and self-made, that we have no defences against. That is humbling, and more than a little frightening.

WE HAVE BECOME VICIOUS TO EACH OTHER … WE ARE LOSING A SENSE OF GRACE One key, civilising principle that seems to have been overturned in the chaos is that basic sense of faith in people. We have become vicious to each other. The public discussion turns so nimbly now to the brutally personal, the annihilating. We are losing a sense of grace. I’ve tracked some of the incivility in this column over the past year: the young mum who is mercilessly attacked for saying that she doesn’t find parenting hard; the troubled young woman, justifiably angry at the misogynistic culture of AFL football, is belted across the Twitterverse for being that most unforgivable thing – a difficult woman. And the daily contempt and ordure that is heaped on anyone who dares to take up public life. Well, maybe some of them brought that on themselves … I fear many holds are no longer barred. I fear that for anyone even accidentally caught in the public eye, everything is now going to get viciously personal.

And what possible future arises from all this? After a year in world events, natural disasters and domestic politics that would have disillusioned even the most avid interpreters of Nostradamus with its wild unpredictability, I’m not prepared to say. But I will share this intriguing forecast with you. It comes from one of the most senior Liberals in the country, and it was made confidently and emphatically – albeit after a few. This person predicts that by the time of the next federal election, Malcolm Turnbull will be leading the party, and will go on to lead the Coalition to victory. Now, how could this be, when Tony Abbott is doing so well in the polls and the government appears to be falling apart? It’s the Menzies principle, says my informant. When you are this close to winning, you want to make it an absolute certainty, and Turnbull – with his support across the entire spectrum of Australian politics – nails that down for you, just as Menzies did. The Liberal added, that just like Menzies, Turnbull also has a remarkably large head – literally, not just figuratively – although what that has to do with anything, I have no idea. You see how personal it’s all going to get? \

Publisher’s message

T

he Weekly Review this week celebrates its first birthday and on behalf of all the team I want to thank our loyal readers and advertisers for embracing us when others warned that launching a free, glossy home-delivered magazine into an already-crowded market was madness. When we launched, we promised to raise the bar and to set ourselves apart from our competitors by providing compelling, quality journalism and to celebrate Melbourne – its unique characters, its culture and enviable lifestyle. We also set out to provide the largest showcase for Melbourne’s best real estate. On both counts we believe we have succeeded and, judging by the constant feedback, our readers agree. This birthday would not have been possible without the incredible contribution of my extraordinarily talented team who constantly amaze me with their dedication and enthusiasm. Coming to work over the past 12 months has been a joy and I couldn’t wish for a better group of colleagues. I would also like to thank our supporters in the real estate industry who accepted the challenge to give readers a better quality offering than anything else in the marketplace. Each week we attract the most comprehensive catalogue of Melbourne’s best homes and each week we grow our stable of real estate agencies who entrust The Weekly Review to find buyers for their clients’ homes. To our readers, the next 12 months promise to be even more exciting as we unveil a range of initiatives to ensure we always remain true to our promise to be your No. 1. Thank you and we hope you enjoy our special birthday edition. \

NICK RIEWOLDT TALKS LOYALTY WITH ANDREW McUTCHEN

Thank you for the good article on Nick Riewoldt, one of the champion AFL players. I do, however, want to offer one piece of constructive criticism. I’m afraid the generalisation of Collingwood supporters as having a low intellect is more like what you’d read in the Herald Sun letters column than in a well-researched feature by a good journalist. I would encourage you to think more like Martin Flanagan and less like Andrew Bolt for future articles. It may well be that Nick Riewoldt does find that Collingwood supporters give him the hardest time but I’m sure you’d find every high-profile AFL club has a group of supporters who go off at them more than others. I’m also sure you are smart enough to know that all clubs have good and bad fans. If you are old enough to have stood in the outers of the old suburban grounds you would have found that they were all similar environments no matter where you went. Ironically there was even an area of St Kilda’s old ground at Moorabin nicknamed the “Animal Enclosure”, as mentioned in Matthew Hardy’s wonderful book, Saturday Afternoon Fever, for the more passionate local supporters. Stereotypes aren’t constructive, funny or clever and fortunately a lot of society has at least moved on from ones based on sex, race or lifestyle.

Men at Work MEET CONAN DALEY AND MEN WHO RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY BY SARAH MARINOS Issue

I wish to congratulate you on your choice of cover. Inspired. Conan Daley’s dazzling smile won me (and I’ve no doubt many others). And what a nice man he seems, too. At the same time as Conan graced the cover of The Weekly Review, brilliant, but not as handsome, conductor Richard Gill featured on the cover of The Melbourne Weekly. The Melbourne Weekly lasted one day on my bench and The Weekly Review is still going strong six days after it appeared in my letterbox. I’ve discussed it with my mother (“Wow. Did you get one too?” She did.) and we wonder whether we can throw it out.  Who could you possibly have on the cover of the next edition who could be more endearing?

The Fantastic Mr Fox TRUCKING MAGANATE LINDSAY FOX MEETS ANDREW McUTCHEN

I wanted to thank you for the article you wrote on The Fantastic Mr Fox. (Better late than never.) You not only gave me an insight into a legend’s life so far, but I have been left quoting passages from your article (probably quite badly) about Lindsay’s life and thoughts to my close friends and family to highlight to them the importance of family and surrounding yourself with people you really care about. Not to dwell on making money or impressing other people.  He is an amazing man, larger than life itself and what seems from your article a genuine “Aussie bloke” who has done very well.  Thanks again. Your article and Lindsay have inspired me to re-organise my priorities in life. Nicole Jacobs (email)

Off the Straight and Narrow YOUNGER PEOPLE ARE ‘COMING OUT’ AT AN EARLIER AGE. GEORGIA WILKINS SPEAKS TO MELBOURNE HIGH’S SOFA GROUP

Bravo to Melbourne High School on leading the way in social change. This is excellent work it is doing in supporting certain students with certain needs that are insufficiently catered for by the majority of schools. Well done on setting such a fine example to other schools, as well as sending such a positive message to the wider community. The boys who founded the SOFA group demonstrate a talent for leadership and it’s good to see Melbourne High School living up to its reputation for nurturing Australia’s future leaders.

COMEDIAN TIM FERGUSON REVEALS HE IS SUFFERING FROM MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS. HE IS INTERVIEWED BY PETER WILMOTH

No small talk MASTERCHEF JUDGE MATT PRESTON GETS GRILLED BY ANDREW McUTCHEN

Emma read me the story over the phone – which was great cos she had to read all the nice things I said about her. Didn’t realise that it was going to be so long – but congrats on getting such a good run … respect from the guys at TWR for your writing style I’d suggest. Certainly couldn’t have been the turgid subject matter!!! Matt Preston (email)

Every cloud has a silver lining. I believe Tim having MS, and coming out with it, adds to our collective humanity – even though it’s a life issue for Tim ... thanks for that. And his comment about the audience not noticing, reminds me of UK comedian Jacalynne Flax, who said playing Camilla as a drunk was unaffected by MS. Ken Bull (online) Always loved you, never knew we had MS in common. And doesn’t a sense of humour come in handy some days? Sandie (online)

FROM JESINTA CAMPBELL, MISS UNIVERSE AUSTRALIA

My husband also suffers from MS and doesn’t want anyone to know in case they treat him differently or with sympathy. It is great and secretly inspiring for him to see other successful people dealing with it and living life to the fullest. Thanks for your honesty. All the best. Catherine (online)

Little Girl Lost MOUTHING OFF COLUMNIST VIRGINIA TRIOLI ON THE ST KILDA CONTROVERSY

Beautiful article. I think we overlook just how strong and tenacious this girl is. Yet who wouldn’t be fragile when confronted by the powerful forces around her, all with their own agenda to push. I admire your journalistic integrity. I think we should all stand in awe of her, for she has admitted that she has acted out of mixed emotions, a comment that rings very true to me. I don’t know how she has withstood the onslaught from all quarters thus far. I expect that she will do great things, particularly if her encounters are with people who can try to walk in her shoes, something that is impossible for any of us to do. Adele Pace (online) Wait until she turns 18 – please, most of us knew who she was on the morning of the release of the photos because a blog in Taiwan ran a manga strip on it and linked to her Twitter – I knew in 15 minutes of reading the story. This girl has nowhere to hide, and nor does she want to – this is the age of the internet. She’s probably going to turn 18 and start her own extremely successful electronic media placement and endorsement system, she’s already got 18,000 followers – lots of product placement available there folks – stop being sentimental, she isn’t, she’s driven. Al (online) Nah. No. I don’t believe it. I can’t believe you’ve fallen for and been trapped by her lies. My God. You people just don’t get it. She doesn’t need a hug and love. She needs a swift kick up the ass. I know “K”. She was my best friend. She loves ALL of this. She has said to me before and I quote “I just want to be famous, I want people everywhere to know my name”. Rhiann (online)

Melbourne Coffee Review 2011 Issue

(EAMON GALLAGHER, JULES TAHAN)

An article by The Weekly Review writer FROM Peter Wilmoth changed TIM my life. Seriously. I’ve FERGUSON experienced multiple sclerosis for much of my adult life and had always kept it private, even from friends, colleagues and relatives. This was partly to avoid them worrying and partly because I’m a stubborn “I can handle anything, thank you” male. I can handle anything (who can’t?) but during an interview, Peter Wilmoth asked “Won’t things be easier if the news breaks?” My life’s changed from that day, with a new live show about life on the road (with MS as the tour manager) touring from this month. It was the faith Peter and The Weekly Review engendered that gave me the strength to take the leap and tell the story. In a world of cynicism about the media, this event reminded me of their power to let the truth be free, and us with it.

Colour & movement

“But when it comes to this troubled young woman, my journalist instinct is missing. I don’t want to get her on air, or sit her down with a camera, tape or pen. In fact I never want to hear from her again.”

Decanter \ by ben Thomas

Great to see your article on sherry. Yes, gone are the days of Aunty Bessie’s Chesnut Teal. Just wanted to say that I have been a member of a sherry club for 14 years – it’s not some daggy gaggle of over-60s. We started it in our late 20s and have been meeting on the first Wednesday of every month to drink the best of what Jerez has to offer. It’s kind of book club without any requirement to read, instead we eat tapas and drink. Good to know you are profiling such a versatile drink. Enjoyed the article. Thanks. Alison Lane (email)

The Great Inspirer

cheryl crITchley speaks To a moDesT Teacher who Is encouragIng sTuDenTs To reach TheIr poTenTIal I read your recent article, The Great Inspirer, and I just wanted to say thank you for providing the public with such a wonderful article. I am a student at Loreto Mandeville Hall, and it was so lovely to read something that reflected our school in such a great light. As school captain, I very much believe that a Loreto education is one of the greatest opportunities one can be given. Seeing one of our greatest teachers being given credit for her work, and the work of the school, made me so proud to be a Loreto girl. As a student, I, along with my class mates, see how hard the teachers work each year to attain the best results possible, and it means so much to see someone like Sandra Jane receive such acclamation. I know I am just a Year 12 student, but thank you for such an inspiring article. emma Quirk (email), school captain, Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak Editor’s note: Some comments have been edited for clarity and space. may 4, 2011 \ The weekly review 9

Jill Baker won one of journalism’s highest awards, the Melbourne Press Club’s Gold Quill, for her moving story detailing her battle with breast cancer. PETER WILMOTH spoke with her.

I

n the time since she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Jill Baker found she was not only juggling her own emotions, awkwardness and sensitivities, but apparently everyone else’s too. “I think people don’t know what to say. When you’ve got no hair and you’re wearing a scarf, the options are that you are trying out for the new Sex and the City movie or that you’re having chemotherapy and you’ve got no hair. So everybody knows you’re sick and quite genuinely a lot of people wonder ‘Is she going to make it? How sick is she going to be? Is she ever going to be back to her normal self?’ “And I think people want to ask but they don’t know how to. My view is that I was always happy to talk to people. I didn’t really want to talk about survival odds but, apart from that, it’s a public disease.

“You walk up the street and you walk into a shop and you’ve got a scarf on and no matter how big your earrings are or how much make-up you’ve got on, you are clearly having chemotherapy. I was in a shop a couple of months ago and a lady walked up and said ‘I hope you don’t mind me asking, have you just finished chemotherapy?’ And I was a bit taken aback. I thought my hair was long enough … She was lovely. She said ‘I finished chemotherapy about three or four years ago and my hair went through a stage where it looked just like yours’. “You are desperate to look normal and well, and that’s why I’m desperate at the moment to stop looking like Mia Farrow on a very, very bad day and start looking less boy-like and more like a girl.” Jill Baker is deputy editor of the Herald Sun. Last month she won one of journalism’s highest awards – a Gold Quill – for her story in the Herald Sun detailing the unexpected death of her husband last year, followed three months later by a diagnosis of breast cancer, radiation treatment and six months of chemotherapy. We are talking in her office at the newspaper. This is a slightly odd experience because, to declare an interest, I worked with Jill for years. The day she was appointed editor of The Sunday Age, the phone rang. “Hi Peter, it’s Jill. I’m ringing to say that we’re about to start an exciting time at the paper and I want you on the journey with me.” Fifteen years later I still remember that call, and how inspired it made me feel. It was a mark of her humanity, not to mention her management skills. Loyalty to her from her staff showed every week in the newspaper. We all pushed ourselves hard for Jill. Growing up in Camberwell and attending Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar, Jill’s parents wanted her to be a lawyer, but she was interested in newspapers and held out for a cadetship at the Melbourne Herald. She went on to write for and edit at The Age and The Sunday Age before moving to Australian Consolidated Press, where she oversaw a stable of magazines. She spent some time in book publishing before returning to her true love, daily journalism. When encouraged by a friend to write the piece, Jill knew she had to tell the whole story. She admires the courage people show with journalists. “They talk about the most important things in their lives, the things that really matter to them and often really personal things and often really terrible things about love ones that they’ve lost … and they have incredible courage and they trust us enormously to tell their story in the way they want it to be told. “So I guess part of my trepidation when I sat down with a computer was to say ‘Right, well, can I do this?’. Was I going to be brave enough to put it on a piece of paper and then see it go into every copy of the Herald Sun? There were lots of bits that I would have liked to have left out, but … I knew if I wasn’t honest that everyone who has either gone through it themselves or know someone who has gone through it … would read 16 The weekly review \ may 4, 2011

it and go ‘You know what? It actually isn’t like that’. So I decided that if I was going to do it, it has to tell everything. And I think I did tell everything.” The article was accompanied by a photograph of Jill with no hair. “I never wanted to have a picture of me with no hair in the paper,” she says. “I thought about that really hard and I decided that if the Herald Sun was going to interview a woman who had a story like mine and if I were sending a reporter out to do that, when we were discussing the story beforehand I would most likely would say ‘Look, I’m not sure whether this woman will have lost her hair or not and I’m not sure whether she’ll have a wig or a bald head or she’ll have a scarf on but ask her once and ask her politely would she be happy to be photographed with a bald head? If the answer is no, move on. Absolutely fine.’ “And I decided that if we, as journalists, will ask other people to do that, I can’t do this story and not do that

myself. So I said to the photographer ‘Right, OK, you’re going to do a picture of me with a wig on, picture of me with scarf on, picture of me with bald head.’ I’ve actually never looked at the pictures and I suspect I never will.” The article received a strong reaction. “I was in the supermarket after work … and this lady came up and said ‘Are you Jill? I hope you don’t mind, I’ve got two of my friends over there, we all read your story and we all cried and they’d like to say hello.’ One lady said ‘Jill, we just want to tell you we think you look really beautiful with no hair and no eyelashes.’ ”

S

he speaks about those early traumatic days when, still grieving for her husband, she had to deal with painful chemotherapy. “I’d be sitting in my oncologist’s waiting room and the place opposite where you have the chemotherapy is full of all sorts of people who have terrible stories, a lot of them, and my story isn’t any more special than any of those people’s stories. And you sit there and there are young people, there are old people, there are people with kids. The doctors and the nurses try everything to make it as bearable as possible, but at the end of the day it’s incredibly difficult. “Every three weeks you are being injected with these drugs that are designed to kill cancer cells, and let’s hope they do, but they make you really sick. Before any of this happened, I knew that I had a body but I guess last year I found out I was a body, and (it) was

something that had to be fixed, and that meant a couple of lots of surgery, six months of chemotherapy. “I think some people sailed through it. I just wasn’t one of those people. I got septicaemia. I had bad reactions to one of the specific chemo drugs. It was incredibly rugged, I really felt like I’d gone from a healthy person to someone who was actually struggling on a day-to-day basis.” When initially diagnosed, Jill wasn’t certain she wanted to have the treatment. “Right at the beginning I was probably vulnerable, I was grieving … I got to the point where I thought ‘Well, can I be bothered doing this? Honestly, this is going to be six months of incredibly rigorous medical treatment followed by radiation treatment and I actually don’t know whether I can be bothered with any of that’, and I seriously thought for a few days ‘I reckon France looks really good, why don’t I just nick off over there and I’ll live in some little house with a cute garden out the front and make pots of jam and have a really nice time and we’ll see what happens?’ “I suspect quite a few people think those sorts of things. But after a few days I thought ‘Jill, you actually have to do this’. And the doing this is having the first lot of surgery because you don’t know that all the rest of it is going to happen. So you hope at that point that you have one lot of surgery and that’s going to be fine and then maybe you have to have some radiation treatment and then life resumes as normal. “I guess the problem in my case is that it isn’t quite like that … Once you get into it you think ‘I’ve come this far, maybe I should just go a bit further’. There were a few moments in the chemotherapy where I was on the verge of ringing up and saying ‘Stop the bus’.” Did she find a strength that surprised her? “I suspect a lot of my doctors and I suspect all of my friends were surprised that at the end of it all I was sort of vertical, talking, doing things, trying to come to work. At the time I just felt incredibly physically vulnerable. I was struggling to do the most basic things, like go for a walk.” She started back at work part-time, and her colleagues were great. “Everyone is trying to work out what they should say (or do). ‘Should I ask Jill about it? Should I say nothing about it? Should I say I like her earrings? Should I say her scarf looks nice?’ I just want to be treated like normal me. Nothing special.” An editor said to her: “Don’t worry about it, Jill. I’ll put a bucket in my office and you can vomit and then get straight back to work.” “It totally reassured me that I was supposed to be there and wasn’t being a burden.” But there were so many hard days. One day in January Jill took her scarf off for the first time after nine months. “The day you take it off is the day that you remember.” Without the scarf, she says, “it’s like walking around in the nude”. She went to her hairdresser and said “Desley, do I look decent?” Desley said “Yep, you’re decent, Jill.” At home Jill looked in the bathroom mirror and saw “these little tiny spindly bits of hair on what was essentially a pretty bald head”. She drove off for work and had a minor bingle with a vehicle whose owner wasn’t happy. It began to rain. “What hair there was was slicked back on my skull,” she remembers. “The man was saying things about people who run into cars. I couldn’t think of anything to say to him so I said ‘Have you seen my hair?’ and he gave me this look that men give women at Bunnings when you go in and ask for a thingamabob. I was just sobbing.


I didn’t know what to say, so I turned around and walked off.” Walking into the office, someone said, “Jill, you look like a rock chick.” “I burst into tears again. At the office it was tears everywhere, people all around and people going ‘Jill, what’s the problem?’ and I’m going ‘I’m sorry, it’s just my hair’.” Hair and eyelashes, she says, are important for a woman. “I think that’s a girly thing. Hair does matter. I think eyelashes matter. I’m sorry but for me, in the middle of chemo, my eyelashes fell out after about three months. So I had no hair for the whole time, but your eyelashes stay for a while, then fall out. “I said to my oncologist ‘Michael, can you do anything about eyelashes?’ And he gave me one of those looks as if to say ‘Why are you asking me about that?’, which I think is probably a bloke thing. Most blokes couldn’t care less about eyelashes but to me it’s hard to try and look healthy if you’ve got a) no hair, b) no eyebrows and c) no eyelashes.” Her experience with cancer has changed the way she looks at her life. “I think I’ll end up living a much simpler life than I did. Some of the things I probably would have got fussed about a few years ago I can’t get fussed about any more. Really, a lot of that stuff really doesn’t matter. There are a few things in life that really do matter, and one is obviously being healthy … most people have never been really sick, so they haven’t had to think “Well, am I going to make it through this? Am I going to live ’til I’m 80? They’ve never thought of that.

Resuming Life

“I’ve decided that you don’t have to live ’til you’re 80 to have lived a worthwhile life. I hope that I live until I’m 80, maybe a little beyond, but cancer is one of those things – you have all the treatment, you live a healthy life, but at the end of the day there’s a chance it may come back. And if it does come back, they may be able to fix it or make it go away or maybe they can’t, and I think you’ve got to find a space in your head to actually get your head around that issue. Because if you don’t, you are sitting there going ‘I am going to be well, I am going to be well’.” Jill Baker is a remarkable woman and there was a lot of love in the room when she won her Quill. And now she’s charging on. In the past three weeks she is starting to feel better. “I’ve started running,” she says. “When I say running, I’ve started shuffling. I’ve got a little bit of hair, as you can see, and I’ve got eyelashes and I’m resuming life.” \

Fredo Frogs aren’t always the answer

person on the phone heard the screams stop and said, in a judging tone, “Did you just put your kids outside?”, and my friend said, “Oh, no, it’s fine, the nanny is out there playing in the garden with them.” Some other friends forgot to pick up their kids from aftercare once. The dad got the 6.30pm call, riding home on the bike. He thought it was his wife’s turn. Don’t you hate that? But the kids are all right. We hope. They’ve probably got too many Zu Zu pets and footy cards, but at least

they’re not shoved outside with a couple of dry Weet-Bix and told not to come back dirty. That’s what our parents did and look at the collateral damage. Anyway, I’ve juggled through the holidays and survived but only by the skin of my teeth. There’s a pile of washing waiting to be folded on the couch, an empty fridge, I’m weeks behind in work and about two kilos heavier from stress-eating Flakes and Red Rooster chips. And time flies. We’re now into second term and The Weekly Review is one year old. And you can learn a lot in one year. I didn’t think it could intensify, but this year I’ve learnt that my mother’s crush on James Hird could actually reach more epic proportions. I’ve learnt a lot about what people think about the clothes a female prime minister should wear, and what her opponent shouldn’t, but at the end of the day we all should choose our frocks, bathers and leaders wisely. I’ve learnt that once kids have nits they always will, and sometimes things get easier with age, such as eating and sleeping and opening wine, and sometimes harder, such as hearing about what some adults do to kids, still. I’ve learnt red wine makes you fat and exercise plans never last past March. And potatoes are potatoes, despite what supermarkets try to tell us about mashing or salad making. Please. Potatoes are potatoes. And I’ve learnt school holidays are no holiday for parents. \ kathall@ozemail.com.au

Spock, whack and smack, and chuck them in the backyard with a Vegemite sandwich. Now we have the “juggle”. And geez, Louise, don’t we use that word a lot in the school holidays? When a friend says, “I’m juggling this week” you know they’re running from work to the holiday program, texting parents to organise kid swap, and making quick stops at the supermarket for playdate snacks, a cardboard box of pumpkin soup and chardonnay for a big glug later, when everyone’s finally asleep, the dishwasher is on and the child care for the next day is organised. It’s good to work. But school holidays are double the trouble. You’ve just promised the kids you’ll take them to the movies and someone at work needs something. And you’ve just put The Sound of Music on (longer than a Pixar film) so you can get some work done and there’s a fight or someone needs some watermelon cut up. Corporal punishment is done and dusted, but Fredo Frogs aren’t always the answer. I have this loud scream I keep in reserve for times such as knives in toasters, but I get a sore throat afterwards and that’s not good. Ah, the juggle. You’re busy, work needs something from you, kids are screaming at each other and the only option is a Zu Zu pet/footy card reward and hope for the best. A friend once had an important work call and one of the kids was screaming so she put them outside. The

In its first year of ownership, the new Café Racer team made the decision to return to the café’s famous past. They bought back the much-loved memorabilia that had adorned its walls under founder Danny Colls and worked with coffee blends they knew would please their ever-present, hardcore, espresso-loving, Lycra-clad crowd. For co-owner Soo Ford and business partner Damian Thompson, the choice of coffee brand was logical. Both had worked for the St Ali group: Thompson is the foodie and Ford is a front-of-house specialist and a shareholder in Sensory Lab. They did some renovations and improvements, including work on the central kitchen and a new stove, but the shell remains classic Racer. Hearty breakfasts – there’s even a chocolate porridge – and rib-sticking lunches such as soups and curries come out of this compact space and appeal to the athletes who arrive on two wheels, Marine Parade joggers and those not high on endorphins.

Cycling photographs, posters, jerseys and flags are the only decoration to white walls and blond

a finger down their throat and tickle their uvulas. But for the sake of celebrating The Weekly Review’s big first birthday, we’ll swallow our gastric reflux and cast a rheumy eye back over the year that was in local gastronomy. First thing that comes up; when did food get so achingly fashionable? The mega-hype that now surrounds the simple act of cooking and eating – fuelled by magazines (mea culpa), lavish awards, TV shows and an avalanche of cookbooks – has created the surreal situation in which restaurant diners can feel as if they are merely bit-players in another man’s or woman’s quest for global fame and countless riches. (Gordon Ramsay’s Maze comes forcefully to mind.) Perhaps that’s why it’s so pleasing to see chefs staying true to their culture or ideals, putting integrity over celebrity – the likes of Alla Wolf-Tasker at Lake House, the newly energised Pietro Porcu at Da Noi and the terrifically talented Frank Camorra at MoVida. Cafés and casual-dining establishments have paraded themselves down a similar catwalk with an increasingly lengthy list of ingredients per dish, presented on boards, tiles and imported hand-made plates. When did a simple burger, pasta dish or panini morph into a lunchtime fashion experience? The emergence of the “next door” (thanks, MoVida) – a quick-bite stopover, such as Little Press & Cellar at The Press Club – has given us all a chance to peek at expensive trends minus the price tag. And coffee? Now there’s a fashion-conscious, dressed-in-black, name-dropping Melburnian. This year there’s been an attitude that cafés not offering their customers a selection of single-origin or single-estate beans on a daily basis, presenting pour-over, syphon or filter or cold-filter brewing options in glass beakers are just not trying hard enough. Of course, there must be single-origin Colombian panela cane sugar on the

table too and, in some cases, exclusively sourced milk. We should, though, thank industry leaders such as St Ali, Seven Seeds, Auction Rooms, Proud Mary and Market Lane Coffee and their expensive tastes. They have given us all a glimpse of the world around us and are strong supporters of the developing nations that supply their lifeblood. And pleasingly, they’ve given plenty of attention to quality imported tea and cocoa, too. But to their credit, some well-known Melbourne cafés such as Journal, Café Racer, Maling Room and Batch Espresso have largely eschewed haute caffeine brewing techniques, taken the best of the new offerings and remained faithful to traditional espresso. In many cases so have the hardcore caffe latte lovers who refuse to drink coffee without the addition of soy or cow’s milk and will happily sweeten it with white sugar out of a paper packet. This has been a year for celebrating meat in all its gory. Chefs like to call it a nose-to-tail philosophy, which can sometimes seem like a trendy justification

Pope Joan – one of the places to be seen this year

for putting lots of cheap offal on a menu. MasterChef alumnus Chris Badenoch is a cheerleader for the cause, offering diners rolled and steamed bits of a pig’s head with side orders of sauce gribiche and pork crackling. The European has an entire nose-to-tail subsection to its dinner menu, while Millswyn chef Nathan Johnson’s suckling pig nose-to-tail is a surgical arrangement of pork packages, including deep-fried patties made from pig’s head and trotters and a sous-vide pork belly with celeriac and fennel. Honourable meaty mentions go to Becco’s tagliata and Philippe Mouchel’s rotisserie birds at PM24. That’s a trend that cafés have yet to pick up on, although pork belly is now omnipresent, at least on a menu taking itself seriously, and pork crackling is scattered through salads and over soups and curries. But keep your ear to the ground and watch out for battered pigs’ tail Caesar salad and pork-cheek pizza. The fad in produce has been for natural, nearby and old-school, which perhaps explains why every

restaurant worth its sustainable shtick has heirloom tomatoes on the menu. The fruit species may have been rescued from the past but the frequent tastelessness of the tomatoes themselves is a modern affliction. Kingfish has been equally pervasive, prepared every which way from sashimi to carpaccio. Two of the best versions were Ocha’s new-look sashimi of lightly seared kingfish dressed with ponzu, and Stokehouse’s kingfish ceviche with salted grapes, flying-fish roe and sunflower seeds. Carpaccio – of fish, meat or vegetables – has become as common as pannacotta, with some seriously good adaptations. Josie Bones’ luscious plate of ocean trout scattered with crisp gingerbread pieces and zesty St Clement’s jelly still lingers. You’ll find soft-shell crab in everything from takeaway Japanese hand rolls to salads on your local lunch menu. And share plates such as antipasto and charcuterie platters, or new-wave tapas lists are avenues for global adventure as increasingly brave and experimental chefs give diners a sample of their meat-curing (or procuring) skills, or tastes of lavish, imported ingredients. At True South in Black Rock, Argentinian chef Mauro Callegari serves seared, spiced tuna with avocado mousse and croqueta de arroz (rice croquette with smoked mozzarella and chives), while at St Judes Cellars and Pope Joan – the places to be seen this year – the

sourcing of quality ingredients has been impressive. Dessert has been a groundhog day of granitas, whether Atlantic’s granita and ice-cream lollipop, Pearl’s cracking tamarind and finger-lime fancy or Andrew McConnell’s trailblazing ginger granita with coconut sorbet and lychees. Flavoured ice never tasted so posh. (Pearl also deserves mention for being first to take the iPad plunge, delivering its wine list and menu to diners via tablet computer. It’s so brazenly 21st century, we expect the trend will spread like SARS.) And while we’re on dessert, let’s take another quick look at coffee. Once cafés simply needed a box of toys and space for a pram to be in vogue; now there’s the emergence of the “coffice”. Cafés serving top-notch coffee, fabulous imported single-origin teas and up-to-the moment lunch and breakfast menus are now more than relaxed business meeting places. This year, they have become the new boardroom or even the job interview room. One new and notable case in point is Maison Ama Lurra in North Melbourne, which boasts private meeting rooms and free Wi-Fi. Food fashions aside, there have been many chefs bold enough to buck trends and create their own excitement. Cheong Liew’s saucy, spiced Loligo squid with smoky curry leaves; Raymond Capaldi’s unorthodox cauliflower cheese with Comte gnocchi; Gigibaba’s irresistible flame-grilled lamb cutlets seasoned so simply with sea salt and wild oregano. Get ’em while they’re hot. Likewise Huxtable’s jalapeño and cheese croquettes. Oh, and Mamasita’s elotes, those gorgeous grilled corncobs coated in creamy cow’s milk cheese and chipotle mayo. Ay caramba. We’ve eaten well (and drunk tea and coffee in style) in Melbourne this year. \

and passionate wine consumer to member of the wine fraternity in the past 12 months. I discovered early just what a friendly bunch of people work in the wine industry. There may be more than 2000 wineries in Australia but they are all part of the one family, who welcome new members with open arms. There are a few wineries I’m indebted to for easing me into the wine world. Wineries such as De Bortoli, Hoddles Creek, Mount Avoca, D’Arenberg and Pizzini – all family-oriented wineries, I might add – threw samples, support and advice my way in the early days of The Weekly Review and many friendships made will last beyond this column. There have been more starstruck moments in the past year than there ever were as a young journalist working at TV Week in its mid-’90s heyday. Discussing wines around a table with James Halliday and meeting winemakers whose wines I have bought religiously for years were just a few pinch-myself moments that put nights at the Logies in the shade. There have been embarrassing moments, too. I won’t go into them, but let’s just say it took a while for me to perfect my spitting technique. Out of habit, I still wear dark clothing to tastings. I’d like to think of myself as being a pretty adventurous wine drinker, always seeking out new and alternative varietals and trying to match them with food. This past year I’ve tasted enough fiano, vermentino and tempranillo to know that these are wines with a great future in Australia. I’ve been equally impressed with the value of wines on the market – from $6 cleanskins to sub-$20 imports to

DECANTER\

FOR BEN THOMAS, A VINTAGE YEAR wines made from ancient vines for more than $50. There’s a lot of overpriced wine out there, too, and I’ve enjoyed sorting the wheat from the chaff to bring you the best wines of their ilk each week. This past year has also seen the resurgence of chardonnay, which has started to outsell sav blanc for the first time in years. Cooler regions such as the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Orange and Great Southern are leading the way. Chardonnay is not only my favourite white grape, but I reckon on the world scene ours is up there with the best anything France or the US has to offer. On the flip side, I’ve tasted some wonderful sauvignon blancs this year, with the barrel-fermented, textural style, known as fumé blanc, showing that we can

rival the Kiwis in the top-notch savvy stakes. Savoury rosés took off this past summer, with sales well up on previous years. Expect to see more dry, textural and savoury rosés hit the market later this year. Alcohol levels in shiraz have plummeted, bringing more elegant, savoury and food-friendly wines to the table. As winter rolls in I’m looking forward to exploring Australia’s fine fortified heritage and will be seeking wines that go well with rich, warming foods. That means a combination of the classics – shiraz, grenache, cabernet and its blends – and alternative reds, such as tempranillo, sangiovese and malbec. It’s going to be a fun few months, and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you. \

Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone 2009

I interviewed winemaker Rory Lane in November last year about white Rhone blends of marsanne, roussanne and viognier. His own wine hadn’t been released at the time, but he did give me a barrel sample to try. This blend of viognier, marsanne and roussanne is in the shops now and it’s lovely. It has perfumed aromas and delicious flavours of pear, peach, ginger, spice, apricot and blossom, a creamy texture and a line of lemon acid that keeps it light and fresh. It’s selling fast, so get in quick.

I reviewed the 2008 release in my very first column and thought it would be good to look at the current release. I’m glad I did. It has an array of perfumed aromas that include cherry, blackberry, orange blossom, bittersweet chocolate, sap and spice. In the mouth are concentrated flavours of plum, dark cherry, minerals and charcuterie. A terrific structure with the balance between acid, flavour, supple texture and ripe, powdery tannins proves to be a real highlight.

Dominique Portet was a sparkling-wine pioneer in Victoria and Tasmania with Taltarni for a long time before going out on his own in the Yarra Valley. The LD on the label stands for low dosage, and a small amount of red wine and liqueur is added to the wine after it is disgorged and plugged with a cork. This smells of strawberry, quince and vanilla and has intense flavours of lemon, peach and strawberry. It’s dry and refreshing, as sparkling should be, with a nice hit of flavour on the finish.

2009 was a cracking year in the Rhone Valley, and this blend of grenache, shiraz and mouvedre is cracking value. This has perfumed aromas of cherries, raspberries and blackberries, with notes of mineral and earth giving it some complexity. There’s a good intensity of flavour that you don’t always see in entry-level Cotes du Rhone with plum, sour cherry, raspberry, spice and dried herbs. Sandy tannins, juicy acid and a rich finish make this an easy wine to like.

Spirit of the black dreSS

was an important festival Fashion week in Melbourne as it linked commercial images to the consumer. It enabled us to find out what's available for the forthcoming season – the trends, colours, shapes, accessories, styles. The Spirit of the Black Dress exhibition was organised by a group of independent recent graduates committed to raising the profile of emerging fashion and increasing international appreciation for Australian design. It aimed to promote a sense of community and networking in the industry. Each of the designers stressed the importance of sustainable eco-fashion and rejected the current churning machines that dominate commercial fashion. I have listed my four favourite designs of the exhibition. Each of these fashion designers embraces diversity and change. With their talent and creativity, they are responsible for taking Australian fashion to a whole new level. \

 Alyana Eau & Priscilla Lim using traditional concepts but applying contemporary perspectives, this unique design is my favourite in the parade. the whole image looks like it is inspired by the ’90s film The Fifth Element. With dramatic shapes, it’s somewhat Jean Paul Gaultier but with an Australian edge. It has many borrowed and appropriated styles, such as the tubular shape of the dress, which could be linked to tribal Africa. the hair has been allowed to sit in a free-form manner. It has many kinks and waves and the designer has made a decision to keep the dramatic long fringe. Like a veil, the fringe reveals mystery. LOOk Out fOR: Space elements, tubular shapes, big accessories.

On the catwalk, this dress looks impressive. With two prominent square-pleated frills sitting neatly over a tight-fitting pencil skirt, it looks like many of the vogue designs of the ’80s. Although it has a classic high neckline, it’s tapered at the waist, making it sexy and young and very flattering for the female figure. At the parade, this design also had a dramatic shadow, which created an interesting silhouette on the catwalk. LOOk Out fOR: A return to the ’80s, shoulder pads, pleats, layering.

Melina Hollway (ImAgeS COurTeSy Of The SpiriT of The Black DreSS phOTOgrAphed By peTer ryle)

Katherine Hamer 

With a love of period fabrics and forgotten treasures, this designer has chosen a vintage fabric mini dress. She has also added an exaggerated long train that begins at the shoulder. The complicated detailing on the garment alludes to a dreamy, whimsical look suggesting a return to the late ’60s and early ’70s. LOOk Out fOR: Vintage wedding dresses, sequins, hand beading, craftsmanship.

 Cristina Tridente This design by Cristina Tridente is influenced by Spanish traditional dress. With a keen interest in fabrics, the dress has a series of tapered frills that beautifully measure from the thigh to the ankle. It looks similar to a flamenco dress. The asymmetrical neckline is very couture and matches the exaggerated wedge shoes. The hair is down and has been lightly razored at the ends, allowing a contemporary take on the design. This dress can be worn with the second model, who has highly gelled, lacquered, bleached hair. The cement-like hair allows a strong jaw and a total revealing self to come forward. LOOk Out fOR: Ballroom gowns, frills, wedge shoes. may 4, 2011 \ The weekly review 27

Put your best foot forward at this new shop, writes JANe RoCCA.

f as the old saying goes, you can’t judge a book by its cover but you can judge a man by his shoes, then you’d better send him to Beggar Man Thief – a new men’s shoe and accessories shop in South Melbourne – where no bloke can put a foot wrong. When it comes to footwear, so many men get it wrong or simply don’t pay enough attention to shoe detailing. Many live life in one of two ways – those who appreciate quality and style; and those who don’t. If the shoe maketh the man, then there’s little point in fiddling with your image if you aren’t going to have a crack at making the change from head to toe. Beggar Man Thief’s co-founders – Scott Lewis and his long-time friend and partner Marc Godfrey – set out to make a difference when they opened their shop last year. Located in a beautifully converted site that was built in 1877, the emphasis is on quality European shoes and handpicking styles that suit the Australian male. “Our customers are understated, fashion conscious not fashion fixated, so the brands represent real quality across quite a broad style range,” says Lewis. It stocks English brands such as Grenson and Loake (they make shoes for the Queen) as well as Australian brand Vanishing Elephant, with more local brands making their way onto the shelves for spring this year. The shop is all about mixing brands, styles and price points – to keep blokes looking good without hurting the hip pocket. “Don’t be so conservative; buy quality and the shoe will get better and look better with age,” says Lewis. “Get the proportions of the shoes right with the pants and buy a shoe that is versatile and you know you’ll wear it often. And for God’s sake get off your black-shoe fixation.” European shoes tend to suit slighter builds and fit smaller, narrow feet, and Beggar Man Thief knows this only too well. That’s why importance has been placed on selecting styles that suit the Aussie dimensions (so to speak). “Australian guys are not European guys. Most Aussie blokes are between 75 and 95 kilograms and have bodies that have done early years of sport and later years of beer drinking,” says Lewis.

“They wear pants that are broader in the leg, so it’s no use putting a 90-kilogram Australian guy who wears straight-leg jeans or suit pants into a narrow Italian shoe. I think Australian guys are just as eager (to be fashionable) but they are not being serviced like the European guys.” Lewis recommends a Goodyear welted leather brogue boot for winter (these originated in Scotland and Ireland and are known for their sturdy durability) or a classic elastic-sided Chelsea boot for everyday wear. In

importance haS been placed on Selecting StyleS that Suit the auSSie dimenSionS

fact, a pair of boots are a must in any man’s wardrobe – so whether you go for a Chelsea boot, a desert boot or a lace-up style, make sure you have at least one pair to switch into midweek or on weekends. The renowned Grenson brand from Britain prides itself on using the manufacturing process known as Goodyear welted, which can be traced back to more than 300 years, means that the product lasts longer and the shoe can be resoled time and again. And when it comes to warmer months, a leather Derby shoe is a must. It’s all about versatility and comfort, according to Lewis. “It’s nice to go into a super high-end shop but a lot of typical guys find those environments uncomfortable,” he says. “Australian guys are easy, so if you make shopping easy for them, they’ll come in droves. Make them feel uncomfortable and they’d rather do something else. Not rocket science, really.” \

mantras in our little bookshop is, One Of the “When you read to children, they will never forget’’. We remind our customers of this when they

come in to choose a book for their child. Puzzles, games and colouring books are fun, but kids of all ages – even teenagers – love to be read stories by an adult. And the experience stays with them forever. It is one of the day’s rituals kids most enjoy: fed, bathed and in pyjamas, the child can then spend a precious half hour journeying to faraway lands and meeting curious characters with their mum or dad, grandparent, babysitter or older sibling to guide them. The reader’s repertoire of funny voices and noises helps; so, too, a book that has beautiful illustrations. And as you share precious time-out together, you can be heartened by the fact that you are also instructing your child about reading and books, and their important role in our lives. In this edition of The Weekly Review you’ll have noticed we are making a big deal about turning one. For children (and magazines), it is a significant milestone when the baby starts to walk, talk and express its own personality. It’s also a key time for reading to your child. No longer content with touchy baby books, books with no words but big, colourful images, and little buggy books you tie onto their pram, the 1 year old starts to crave something with a plot, a rhyme, characters and familiar scenes. Here are some tips for adults who are buying books for 1 year olds and beyond to the early toddler months. We also suggest that you chat to your local bookshop staff who’ll be able to point you in the right direction. Reading with your child can – and should – happen at any time of the day. But it is wise, also, to establish a regular bedtime

reading ritual. We also urge parents who work regular hours and get home around the child’s bed time to use this reading time as a chance to physically and emotionally bunker down together. A little library of beautiful hardcover classics is important , but remember that children also need a selection of books that they can handle (or manhandle), turn the pages, sit with on their own without tearing the pages. Board books are a great solution. They are resilient and can be easily cleaned after sticky fingers have thumbed their way through. Upon turning one, children start to identify shapes and colours, noises and animals. Any books dedicated to these subjects will be winners. Experts say that toddlers learn about 10 new words a day. Repetition helps to reinforce these words. If you choose a book that repeats words, for example, where is the green sheep?, they will quickly learn what a sheep is, and what noise it makes. We urge parents to sneak into the child’s room when they are having an afternoon nap, place a couple of sturdy board books at the foot of the cot, and then give the child some time alone to explore their books. The first few times you try this might cause some initial crying out, but eventually they’ll learn that when they wake up there’s more fun at hand than just yelling out for mum and dad. Our bestseller sturdy books for 1 year olds include: Giraffes Can’t Dance, the Maisy series, Diary of a Wombat, Lynley Dodd’s Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy books, Peepo!, What Am I? in the Little Scholastic series, Time for Bed, Dear Zoo and Eric Hill’s Spot series. \

books for one-year-olds PADDINGTON By Michael Bond (Illustrated by RW Alley) » $12.99 (HarperCollins) Paddington Bear recently celebrated his 50th anniversary and as this is a special birthday issue, we couldn’t leave him out of this week’s recommendations. Michael Bond’s series originally started as chapter books for the seven-pluses. The brand has become so successful, however, that the Paddington story has morphed into different formats for different age groups. This little board book explains briefly the journey of Paddington from “darkest Peru’’ to Paddington Station in London, where he is found by the Brown family, taken home and adopted. A charming story, and even though toddlers will have problems picking up some of the storyline, they’ll love hearing you read the different characters. \

VERY FIRST WORDS: ON HOLIDAY Usborne Very First Words Series » $12.99 (Usborne) This is the perfect book for teaching your toddler key words. There is no storyline, although the plot is pretty obvious: mum, dad and the three kids are packing the car to go on a camping holiday. Each page features an illustration with words above the objects: “car”, “tent”, “sleeping bag”, “sea”, “sandcastle”, “ice-cream’’, “seesaw’’ and the like. So much will be familiar and your child will quickly be able to latch onto words. Highly recommended. \

FIZZ THE FIRE ENGINE By David Wojtowycz » $16.99 (Orchard Books) In our experience, all kids love a fire engine. This colourful soft-cover picture book is a great one to add to your collection.

Children love variety in their nightly reading, and this price allows you to offer them some choices.) Fizz is a shy little fire engine who loves all the activities of working in the fire station but he doesn’t like to sound his siren or flash his lights. Can Fizz find his inner fire-truck mojo and save Chuff the goods train from an accident? Action packed! \

SELECTED TALES FROM BEATRIX POTTER By Beatrix Potter » $19.95 (Penguin) How many Beatrix Potter stories can one child have in their library?

Spooky Spanish film Pan’s LabyrinTh has finally arrived on Blu-ray, looking more sumptuous than ever. This wondrous mix of ancient myth and modern history, in which a young girl trades a brutal reality for something far stranger, is perfect winter fare. Using the Spanish Civil War as his backdrop, director Guillermo Del Toro crafts a beautiful fantasy tale of fauns and fairies, quests and queens and, erm, freaky bald guys with weird eyes. The real-world scenes alone would make for a remarkable movie, but the ambiguous layers of fantasy result in a classic kids’ film that is, probably, far too scary for children. Rent it, watch it, then buy it and watch it again. And again.

TrOn: Legacy looks no less impressive in HD and a taut soundtrack from Daft Punk just about carries the limp narrative to its conclusion. Luckily, there’s enough zipping about on light bikes to keep the kids entertained, while the father-and-son plot thread provides a vital injection of flesh and blood. Like the original, it’s more spectacular than memorable.

Sofia Coppola’s latest film, sOMewhere, is certainly her best since Lost In Translation, if only because it revisits the same tale, with a few tweaks here and there. Instead of a surprising friendship between fading actor Bill Murray and a young woman, we have a surprising friendship between fading actor Stephen Dorff and a young girl – in this case, his daughter. Unfortunately, sticking so close to home means Murray’s absence is keenly felt. Still, it’s a beautiful, absorbing piece, likely to reveal new depths on repeat viewings. Australian TV series sPiriTed, in which a dentist flat-shares with a ghost, did very well on Foxtel last year, and its arrival on DVD should generate a few new fans. Star Claudia Karvan’s popularity as an actress remains a mystery, but co-star Matt King has enough

grumpy charm to make this worth a few evenings of your time. It’s also the first Aussie show in living memory, outside kids’ TV, to use a fantastical premise. This is certainly to be encouraged – if only to spare us more suburban stodge in the vein of Winners and Losers.

dOcTOr whO returned to the airwaves last week in the form of young Matt Smith, but a new boxed set reminds us that his predecessors, for the most part, were equally good. Well, some of them. A couple of them. At least one. The Revisitations 2 boxed set compiles three classic tales from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, showcasing the program’s bottomless creativity. Thanks to some remarkable remastering, the imagination is clearly visible on screen, even if the budget isn’t. The stories mightn’t the best examples of pre-computer-generated image Who, but the packages, loaded with extras, are second to none. Documentaries once were staid but informative affairs, the dull-yet-healthy dinner in the TV schedules, surrounded by more alluring, sugary snacks. Lavish nature series huMan PLaneT follows the recent trend for theatrical bombast, with swelling, melodramatic scores underlining every note of potential drama. On narration duties, veteran actor John Hurt reminds us that “one misstep … could be … FATAL”, whether we’re watching Spanish rock-hoppers, Indonesian fishermen or Hawaiian surfers. The effect is rather like having someone poke you in the ribs and shout “wake up, this is IMPORTANT” every 10 seconds. It’s also unnecessary as the high-def footage, whether of towering waves or vast, empty deserts and the hardy folk that inhabit them, is absolutely breathtaking. Even in complete silence, this series would transfix the most restless of couch potatoes. \ mykebartlett@gmail.com

R e v Ie w \ a R t co n dI t Io n the helm of one of Australia’s most forward-looking galleries in 2007. He says he benefited from getting an early start and having a clear vision from the very beginning. “People roll their eyes and say ‘you always tell this story’, but it was when my mum took me out of school in country Victoria and took me to the NGV in primary school, and I just totally fell in love with the place and said I don’t ever want to leave. This is the sort of thing I’m going to do, I thought. And I was a young kid, and I just stayed on course. I know that sounds a bit, I don’t know, overly confident, but I just knew that was my calling from a young age.” That dream took him from being the director of the

“We’ve been really inundated With people since We reopened ... We’ve been staggered ... ”

What disaster? Times have never been better for Queensland Art Gallery director Tony Ellwood, writes GEORGIA WILKINS.

I

t’s hard to imagine a better person to have around in a time of crisis than Tony Ellwood. Conversations with the director of the Queensland Art Gallery feel like talking to an old friend, such is the pull of Ellwood’s sincerity. His voice is trimmed with all the qualities of a man who is in love with what he does - conviction, hopeless optimism and a sense of paternal assurance necessary in any leadership role. But his endearing friendliness is the attribute that is the most surprising, perhaps because of his position at the top of the country’s typically competitive cultural food chain. How he got there surely has something to do with Ellwood’s nice-guy persona and the ridiculous amount of passion he has for the industry he’s in. It practically overwhelms him, to the point where he relies on religious imagery to describe it. “It sounds a bit evangelical, but I don’t mind going through some of the more challenging parts of the role if it’s going to help ultimately deliver a great program or an acquisition for the collection,” he says about the hurdle of acquiring funding for exhibitions. “I’m just totally passionate about sharing art, art history, with the broadest possible audience. That is my one big obsession in life, I suppose. I just love it. And all periods of art history, I just find being able to present that and interpret it for an audience is just the best job in the world.” This might seem over the top, but references to God aren’t completely out of place here. To many people, Ellwood has come to symbolise new ways in thinking

about how we engage with galleries. His progressive and egalitarian attitude to art has made him one of Australia’s leading voices in a global discussion on the meaning of the gallery in the 21st century and how art can best be shared. It’s an outlook that has served him well, not only in the intellectual realm but in a practical sense back home. When Brisbane’s biggest flood since 1974 hit the gallery in January and threatened to rip a hole in its tourism budget, Ellwood kept a cool head and an energetic stride, making for a swift recovery of mainly superficial damage to the building. When word got around that 40 new baby finches had been born in an acoustic installation of Australian finches by a French artist, it seemed a fitting metaphor for the healing process the gallery was undergoing, and Ellwood promptly sent out a press release telling the story of the finches and the gallery’s imminent reopening. It seemed that even a natural disaster of biblical proportions was unable to quell Ellwood’s sanguinity. “We thought, what a beautiful story around the evolution of that artwork, but also about the optimism and hope in the community,” says Ellwood. “It provided a sort of lighter reference point that things are going on and going ahead. But underpinning all of that, it’s a really serious work of art that people love.” Ellwood has an eagerness that’s hard to fake – the mark of an insatiable appetite for a challenge. This hunger has taken him to the top of his career at a relatively young age: he turned 40 when he took to

Bendigo Gallery of Art to the deputy director of the very gallery he fell in love with as a child. During his seven-year stint at the NGV, Ellwood honed the skills that would eventually land him the job he has now. “I’ve often felt that there’s quite a synergy between Melbourne and Brisbane. I see it in the younger artists and youth culture … a strong understanding of contemporary culture, music culture. There is an easy translation between the two cities, and both have a cross-arts interest – people who comfortably shift across different contemporary platforms. “The very strong music scene up here reminds me of what happens in Melbourne, both in terms of contemporary and classical, and the way the cinematic experience is connected into the package, I think there’s just a lot of ways in which the arts is accessed and valued.” So is it his intention to bring people up from Melbourne to QAG? “It’s important, for all blockbusters, to justify the expense of these shows. You really need tourism.” In the months following the floods, Tourism Queensland went into overdrive, trying to redouble its efforts to combat the impression that the natural disaster had put tourist destinations out of bounds. It was feared that interstate visitors who had watched with horror as the Brisbane River broke its banks and engulfed the city would stay away for an unnecessary amount of time. It was a surprise, then, when the doors of the gallery finally opened again and locals rushed in, telling staff they just had to see a certain artwork to know that it was safe from harm. “We’ve been really inundated with people since we reopened … we’ve been staggered at the amount of visitors,” he says. “I think word of mouth is probably one of our greatest forms of getting the message through. For us, it’s about continuing with the most active and ambitious schedule we can think of to compel people to get here, and then telling everyone it’s actually OK, because the city has pulled together very quickly.” It’s easy to see that Ellwood’s philosophical ideas about art reflect his views of society: he doesn’t believe in cultural wastelands or ivory towers. His thought pattern treads with the transience of an artist who doesn’t like to fall back on trends: always breaking new ground and challenging the status quo. This philosophy has been buoyed by what he sees as a global reinvigoration of the art-gallery space to one that embraces a growing exchange of information between gallery and patron.

In February, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York − known for its permanent collection of works from classical antiquity and ancient Egypt − created its first iPhone “app” to accompany a show about guitar craftsmanship. QAG’s focus on “visitor engagement” − the label the industry has given the evolving science of attracting and tracking visitors of all types to galleries through technology and social media − has similarly challenged the status quo in Australia and allowed QAG to stand out. The gallery’s blog and its active Twitter feed and Facebook page have become core ways in which visitors receive information about the gallery. Once inside, the interaction continues: “mob tags” allow visitors with smartphones to access multiple “labels” on an artwork, equipping them with the tools to better engage with the usually encumbering physical space of an exhibition. “People are getting more informed. And they’re actually getting layers of information in their leisure time and in their own identified spaces, so by the time they get here, they’re running through the door. They’ve seen the live feeds of the curator’s talk, they’ve picked up an interview that was shot when the artist visited a few months ago, they’re picking up on Twitter that this thing is happening on a particular day,” Ellwood says. And the flow of information goes both ways: “We as a sector are more engaged with our community than we ever have been. So they understand us, and they also hear more voices − with social media you are getting multiple voices of the organisation, not just the voice of one person, so it’s a much more human space for people.” Taking steps to break down the divide between the public and contemporary art will lead galleries faithfully

into the new decade, Ellwood says. And the statistics suggest this gambit is paying off. Last calendar year, QAG attracted 1.8 million visitors, a dramatic increase from 1.1 million the year before. “That’s extraordinary growth, and that’s just a sign of what’s happening around the world,” Ellwood says. “We’re finding that, worldwide, art galleries have never been so relevant to people. They’re like the new community hub. I feel the future for us as a community and as a sector has never been brighter.” Not only does the importance of the gallery space appear to be increasing, but so does the actual number of galleries across the country. With the opening of David Walsh’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Tasmania earlier this year, the country appears to be embracing and cultivating more of these spaces. What’s not yet clear is how state galleries will compete with private collections such as MONA in the future. “The bigger the sector, and the more art we get to see in our lives the better. It’s fantastic,” says Ellwood. “But at the same time, I hope people still want to leave endowments and build collections and legacies within their state galleries because that’s also a different entry point for people, and it’s good to have both coexisting as best as we can.” \

own to earth. It’s a phrase that has become the preserve of celebrities gorged on success, trotted out in an attempt to imply a fleeting connection to terra firma before they angle their noses firmly skywards. But, somehow, it’s the only way to describe Wayne Quilliam. Maybe it’s because he settles down for a chat on the floor of his study, the one room in his house not cheerily carpeted by his daughter’s playthings. Maybe it’s the shorts and T-shirt he’s dressed in, or his voice, low and gravelly. Or maybe it’s the humility, entirely at odds with his resumé. A list of Quilliam’s accolades would be longer than this article. His work has been shown in every continent but Antarctica, and he’s racked up more than a century of exhibitions on top of appearances in more than 600 books and magazines, from Marie Claire to the official publication of the United Nations. He’s worked with more celebrities than there are in a checkout-line magazine rack and was the official photographer for, among others, the Australian government’s apology to the stolen generations in 2008. Quilliam, 48, is a big, bald bulldog of a man, the canine comparison coming courtesy of a countenance that would be menacing were it not so likeable. There is a raw, untamed quality to his photographs, and his anecdotes and opinions are similarly unvarnished. In short, he loves having a yarn, and this trait forms the centrepiece of his photographic technique. “The camera sits down half the time, and I develop a relationship with my subject,” Quilliam says. He stresses the importance of making a “connection” – it is a word he will return to again and again. “Apparently I’m outside the box on this, immersing myself in whatever I do. Maybe it’s because I never went to photography school. I’m not saying that people who keep themselves away from the story are wrong, but I can’t do it. “I watch other photographers and see how detached they are from their subjects – I have to be involved. I want to know why I’m there; I want to know who you are. Everyone’s got a story, and the story is everything.” As a result, you’d be hard-pressed to hear a shutter click through all the chatter. This interview started out with Quilliam asking “What are your favourite kind of articles?” and it was a good while before he started answering questions instead of asking them. “It wasn’t my photo skills that were the selling point, it was the social interaction. I could work with remote Aboriginal communities out in the Kimberleys and I could sit down and photograph the Prime Minister. It’s all the same to me,” he says. “Technically I’m inept as a photographer. I do it by feel. I try never to set anything up. It tends to work better because people are more comfortable.” Quilliam says the taboo of portraying the name or image of a deceased Aboriginal person is fading in urban and some rural communities, but remains prevalent in traditional ones. “But I go through the right protocols, and 99 per cent of the time I don’t get knocked back. If someone says, ‘I don’t want you to use it’, I would never use it,” he says. “That’s why I maintain total copyright on all my images. I never sell them outright, I lease them. And I stipulate that at any time I can pull the image. I won’t break any rules. I upset people when they need to be upset, but not my own mob, because there’s nothing worse than getting speared in the leg.” Quilliam’s work means that he spends most of the year abroad, often spending time with other indigenous cultures and delighting in the similarities he discovers. “In indigenous cultures in Bolivia, Mexico, Vietnam, Cambodia, the social structure is very similar to our own. There is a kinship system, a family structure, the acknowledgement of our connection to the earth and to each other that I tend to find very strong,” he says.

Heart & Soil

For a man who takes pictures, Wayne Quilliam really loves words. Hari raJ talks (and talks) to him. Cultural connection: In indigenous cultures in Bolivia, Mexico, Vietnam, Cambodia, the social structure is very similar to our own. (WAYNE QUILLIAM)

“I’m not overly spiritual, but when I’m out there I feel something that makes me gel with the country and the earth. When I’m out bush – in the deserts or in the islands – I feel I’m at home. When I’m in the city, I love it, but I’m not connected to it.” No matter where he is in the world, the introduction is the same: “My name is Wayne Quilliam and I’m an Aboriginal photographer.” He wields the term with immense pride, like a standard-bearer marching at the head of an army, as if it is just as important for his audience to know his heritage as it is for him. “I see it that way because my outlook, my vision of this world, is from an indigenous perspective. Photography comes second,” Quilliam says.

This brings to mind recent legal proceedings against Andrew Bolt in which it was alleged that a series of blog posts by the Herald Sun writer intimated that it was politically and occupationally fashionable to insist on a racial identity not readily apparent from pigmentation alone. The posts accused many of adopting this approach. But there was one name that wasn’t mentioned – Wayne Quilliam. “The thing that offended me most about that piece was that I wasn’t included in it,” Quilliam says. Perhaps he is joking. Perhaps not. This is, after all, a man who had ticked the relevant box upon entering the navy, only to be told by a recruiting officer that he couldn’t possibly

be Aboriginal because he was too light. Growing up in Tasmania, Quilliam had no record of his ancestry other than a photograph of his grandmother, a “full-blood blackfella”. He and his siblings were told they were Aboriginal, but they had no connection. Quilliam uses the word to describe the process of a person embracing their roots. He has made the connection, as has his younger brother, but his sister hasn’t. “My younger sister doesn’t identify. But that’s her personal choice. It’s a very individual thing.” Then comes clarity. It took years of effort and study at home and abroad, time spent sitting around a campfire “like a wide-eyed schoolgirl” listening to stories of the Dreaming, for Quilliam to come to terms with his heritage. Even now he refuses to make assumptions. “I can’t just walk into communities in the central desert or the Northern Territory or Queensland and say that I’m Aboriginal and I know what I’m doing. After 20 years I still don’t. You always ask what is the best way to do something. You sit back and listen,” he says. To be Aboriginal is not a claim he makes lightly, and he does not see the merit of a debate of the genetics of the soul over the genetics of the flesh. “To me that’s irrelevant. I used to be worried about it, but now if you don’t recognise I’m Aboriginal, that’s your problem, not mine,” Quilliam says.

U

nsurprisingly, there’s a pretty good story behind Quilliam’s first encounter with a camera. “I joined the photography class in high school because there was a hot chick in there, and I thought I would get in the darkroom and, well, you never know. I started taking photos and I was absolutely useless,” he says. But photography was left behind when Quilliam left

school as a 15-year-old to join the navy, and remained just a hobby until he returned from the navy and was working as a chimney cleaner in Hobart. One day, he entered a customer’s house and was floored by a series of “stunning” black-and-white photographs. “Her father had passed away and she was going to get rid of all the stuff, so I cleaned her chimney in exchange for her father’s photography equipment,” says Quilliam. Then it all came into focus. First came a stint at the

Koori Mail, where Quilliam reported and snapped pictures. He travelled around Australia for three years, visiting Aboriginal communities, living in a van. Along the way he met his wife, Jodie. The couple spent seven years living in Canberra, at the dawn of the digital age of cameras, and Jodie decided the time had come to invest in a new one. It was a three-megapixel Kodak, costing a hefty $6000. “She just said, ‘Do you want to take this seriously or not?’,” Quilliam says, with an almost rueful shake of the head. “She’s the rock of the family. She’s an amazing woman. People write articles about what I do, and what I do is fun and colourful, but that woman has a bloody career, looks after about 20 staff, looks after the house, and she looks after our little girl.

session was packed. If I do it here five people would rock up. It still amazes me that overseas cultures are more interested in Aboriginal culture than Australians.” This is why Quilliam isn’t worried about overexposure in Australia, despite being as prolific as he is. “We’ve all got a connection, and my connection hopefully will influence John and Mary Smith from down the road. Most people will only ever see the drunks and the deaths, but if they can see a strong, positive Aboriginal man living among them, they may think differently about who we are,” he says. “And, being totally self-absorbed, it’s very good for business. I’ve never got a cent from government funding in my life, not a grant or a loan. Exposure is everything to me, and

I’d like to influence people to believe they can be bigger and better than what they are, but ‘role model’ is a term I think is overused these days,” he says. “I have no role models. I appreciate and respect and am in awe of other people’s work, but the reality is you make yourself. I only want to influence my kids, and hopefully to be a better man.” \

The friends used their research to produce a range of electric skateboards. The result is boards that are battery operated, able to cross any terrain, remote controlled and capable of hitting 40km/h. The top-of-the-range model will set you back $1600. “This is for guys and gals that love their toys and will pay $1600 to get to feel like Marty McFly,” Polites said. “The concept has been around for a while. Anyone who saw the hoverboard in Back to the Future has wanted one. I was one of those kids. “If you are into snowboarding and kiteboarding, it is a great tool to have when the conditions prevent you from hitting the slopes or the water.” Polites said battery technology is progressing The so well that in the not too distant future bigger boards are motors will be put on smaller and lighter boards. capable of “You don’t have fun after 40km/h.

One of my best friends calls me George McFly because I’m sometimes a little clumsy. “Pick up your feet, McFly. Stand on the board McFly.

About three years ago when learning to kitesurf, the wind died when I was in the middle of Corio Bay. It was a long swim back to shore and an even longer four-kilometre walk along the road with kite lines tangled and tail between my legs. New things, speed and land are my passion, but I find I need to learn first before I have the confidence to start any trickery. So when Zig asked me to ride these new electric 40km/h skateboards, I was a little worried. The warnings came from everywhere. A co-contributor at The Weekly Review, Loz, warned about what happened to the editor of Gizmo when he jumped on an electric skateboard. “He needed his fiancée to wipe his bum for the next two weeks because he broke his two wrists playing on them.” And George McFly and Marty McFly were not supposed to see each other in the film, Doc warned.

religious order (the flailing of Catholicism, the popularity of spirituality).

(Alex WilliAmson / getty imAges)

Hello New World For those interested in all things spiritual, the world’s turning point is old news. We’re heading out of the astrological age of Pisces (humanity directed by leaders great and poor from Jesus Christ to Stalin) and into the age of Aquarius, which urges us to evolve to a new level of enlightened consciousness. The challenge is to live more purely, to raise the electromagnetic energy of our bodies and minds to a higher vibration, a lighter energy. The signs are vibrantly clear: from the yoga pandemic and the rise of professional counselling and energy-based healing modalities to the environmental and personal-development movements that encourage more conscious living. Some bemoan the rise of individualism as selfish, but at its heart is the Aquarian invocation to spring clean our personal clutter and value systems. Once your house is in order, you have the energy and clarity spare to focus on world service. Humanity is being asked to awaken collectively, to understand that our task on this planet is to live not only harmoniously as a global entity but with all living beings. Don’t just save the whales, save the bees that underpin our food supply! Become a Buddhist, one of Australia’s fastest-growing religions, and learn detachment from possessions alongside love of “all sentient beings”. Allow a dud film such as Eat Love Pray to inspire us to take stock of life and how we’re living it.

Time to hook up

Keeping it nice and simple

As David Suzuki forcefully reiterated during February’s Great Debate, Is Environmentalism Failing?, as part of the Sustainable Living Festival: “We are one species out of 10 to 30 million species on the planet and we think we can take over 88 per cent of the planet and survive. We humans are the centre of the crisis but we need to see ourselves as part of the fabric of a mass of living things. As long as we remain human-centric (we face catastrophe). We need to be biocentric.” Bruce Lipton, the cellular biologist known for creating a bridge between science and spirituality who featured in What the Bleep Do We Know?, notes in his first e-newsletter for this year that the upheavals around the globe – political, natural, cultural, economical – signal a “state of quickening” in humanity’s evolution. And we can choose to respond in three ways: ignore or deny the collective crises, both of which equal extinction sooner rather than later, or move towards it, which is the growth response. Happily, says Lipton, fresh from worldwide speaking engagements on our evolution towards enlightenment, “a massive and ever-growing world population is now responding to the perceived darkness with a life-sustaining, growth-promoting behaviour – the creation of conscious communities”. In the wake of every natural disaster, the world has joined hands in prayer, funding and resources. But Lipton is also talking about people who volunteer, who dedicate themselves to greater causes, anyone involved in community-service-oriented or personal-growth activities. People who are lifting themselves out of the mire of consumerism to serve a higher calling – each other.

As Australian Conservation Foundation president Professor Ian Lowe, also at The Great Debate, so eloquently noted: “We will have to live more simply in the future so that others may simply live.” Which leaves the iPad in the blender and humanity hunting for an alternative. How to move forward? “If we focus our attention on the scary state of civilisation’s erosion, our energy is actually feeding the old paradigm,” says Lipton. “I don’t mean that we should put our heads in the sand … we should … channel the energy into processes designed to create a more harmonious planet. Survival is enhanced by working for something positive rather than working against something negative.” Professor Lowe agrees. Let’s articulate a new vision for a sustainable world that people can see, hear, smell and taste. This is the advice spiritualists have been handing out for years: “What you see will be.” To be part of the solution we could spend five minutes before rising visualising a peaceful, harmonious world (thoughts are energy; energy output equals action). Or learn to meditate. Adopt a value system that supports the world, not just the Aussie dream. Says Lipton: “The world is awakening to the fact that each of us is a powerful co-creator of life, and if we co-operate, like cells in a healthy human body, we can literally create heaven on Earth.” Ah, that sounds familiar. A little Beatle once told me: You may say that I’m a dreamer, But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will live as one. \

very old and rare tree produces wonderfully fragrant flowers for a short time at the end of summer. The essence of real beauty lies in its transience – a child’s laughter, a sunset, a harvest moon. For centuries poets have urged us to cherish the moment. The romantic poet, John Keats, pondered the impermanence of beauty in nature. His own passionate life was tragically brief. He died of tuberculosis aged just 26. Most readers will be familiar with the Gardenia augusta, which bears white scented flowers for most of the year. Less well known is the rare, slow-growing Gardenia thunbergia. A member of the coffee family, the Tree Gardenia originated in Africa. It can reach a height of 3.6 metres and spread up to 4.6 metres across. This elegant evergreen has broad, deep-green, glossy leaves and pretty, highly perfumed flowers. A tubular bud opens out to a single white periwinkle-shaped flower. The Vial family is lucky enough to have one of these rare beauties in their garden in Stonnington. They believe their Tree Gardenia is between 80 and 100 years old and they treat it with the respect it deserves. A rolling wave of lawn leads the eye to their prized tree, situated in a small garden of its own. The family looks forward to the appearance of the first flowers each February and delights in the tree’s beauty and perfume for the brief duration of its flowering season. Mandy Vial says: “We especially love it when the heady fragrance drifts into the house on warm evenings.” When designing her garden, Mandy didn’t want it to be “too perfect” or formal. “I wanted to be able to meander through it,” she says. The end result is relaxed and gracious.

Treasured moments: Mandy Vial (opposite page) loves spending time in her garden with the family dog. Blooming marvellous: Gardenia thunbergia (far left and left) shares the garden with pomegranate (below) and hydrangeas (right).

There is a lot to enjoy in this garden. One walks beneath the arching arm of a magnificent Manchurian pear at the front gate and a pair of silver birches guards the front door. Over there is a Ginkgo biloba tree with its oriental fan-shaped leaves, here a path winds around an old pomegranate tree, its sensuous fruit just beginning to form. You’ll find ripe fruit on the apple and pear trees. A luxuriant wisteria winds around the verandah but, for the moment, forget about all these, and give your full attention to the Gardenia thunbergia. Think of Keats and simply admire the beauty of this spectacular tree in fragrant flower while it lasts. \

HeaLtHy, WeaLtHy & WateR Letina Wong RusseLL explains how to use the drawing power of water as a focal point in the home.

T

he powerful element of water is associated with incredible drive, mood swings, intelligence and communication. It is directly linked to the accumulation of chi, and is synonymous with wealth creation. Intangible forces draw us to it, and whether bayside, beachside, lakeside or poolside, the location of water near our homes has a direct impact on our emotions and our lives. Water features, ponds and bubbling streams are used in feng shui to create wealth. And their placement is an art in itself. Actually, there is an ancient and famous Chinese saying: “The energy dissipated by the wind stops at the boundary of water.” This helps us to understand why water is treated with special care in feng shui, and why the Chinese have always considered it powerful in its abilities to negate or enhance certain types of energy. The chi, or life force energy, that surrounds every living creature, would ordinarily be dispersed by the wind. But where there is the presence of water, this energy can gather, hover and generate, thereby becoming stronger. Ideally we’d like to know that we’re enhancing a prosperous form of energy before installing a water feature in or around our homes. This is certainly an extensive topic in feng shui, and the art of placing water for prosperity should be thoroughly covered by your consultant. Still, there’s no denying the mental and physical well-being we enjoy after spending time by the water and the pull we feel towards it. So if your desire is to create a beautiful focal point in your home using water, here are some helpful hints: • Avoid placing a water feature in the east, south or north of your home this year.

48 The weekly review \ may 4, 2011

• Any time a water feature is installed, whether a fountain, bubbling fish tank or a filtered pond, only install one at a time. Note carefully any circumstantial changes and, if you encounter any bad luck, immediately turn it off. This would indicate placement in an area where difficult energies reside. • A kidney-shaped pool that symbolically embraces the home is considered auspicious. This shape has no harmful sharp corners that point towards the home. However, a kidney-shaped pool facing the opposite direction symbolically turns its back on the home, forming a “curved blade” shape that cuts into the home. This configuration creates energies that are more destructive to certain inhabitants of the home, depending on their elemental make-up in their Chinese astrology. At all times, however, it’s a no-go in feng shui. • L-shaped pools have sharp corners that can send strong currents of energy towards the home and the swimmers in the pool. This type of energy stream is too harsh for us and creates a feeling of unease and discomfort, especially in sensitive people. • All bodies of water must be kept clean at all times. Remember that our gardens and homes provide reflection upon the deeper and real state of our lives. Therefore, water surrounding us that has turned green or stagnated in any way is an indication that energies are not flowing well. Depending on its location, this could indicate a slowing down in finances or sluggish health and will require urgent attention.

• A water feature needs to be in proportion to the home and to complement it. It should harmonise with the surrounding landscape, following the curves of nature where possible. Remember, bigger isn’t necessarily better. If the body of water is too large, we could feel overwhelmed and become exhausted. • If placing a water feature for prosperity in the front garden, align it with the main door. Water gently trickling towards the house is auspicious and symbolises incoming wealth. Be aware of flooding possibilities if the water is situated higher than the building and choose a water feature with smooth, rounded edges. The lovely cooling effects of water, and the drawing power it holds are widely known. What isn’t is the art of its positioning to generate prosperity that can last for generations. Even though this information will provide valuable assistance when using the water element as a feature in your home, it is nonetheless generic feng shui knowledge, and your homes are as individual as you are. If you’re unsure, contact your local feng shui consultant. For now, and always, embrace the energies that activate our homes, lives, health, wealth and happiness. \

Letina@letsfengshui.com.au

» www.letsfengshui.com.au If you have an active water feature in any of these areas, it should only have been turned on after February. Even if you know these are prosperity points for your home, the same applies.

Sitting on the dock Great response: Half of the available apartments at Serrata were sold in the first week. (SuppLIED)

Serrata development on Lend Lease’s Bourke Street, Victoria Harbour, is on track to be completed next year. The

site is part of the state government’s Victoria Harbour precinct masterplan and will have 144 apartments – with four retail spaces – split over 15 levels. The Serrata development has not been without controversy. During the planning stage, Serrata sparked protest from residents in the adjacent upmarket Mosaic and Montage buildings, who feared it would overshadow apartments they had purchased from Lend Lease. Now construction is well under way and the developer reports that 50 per cent of the apartments sold in the first week of the project’s launch. Vivas Lend Lease’s executive director Hugh Martin said: “Serrata represents one of the most exciting new inner-Melbourne urban developments. We are looking forward to creating an accessible, vibrant, residential precinct in the heart of Docklands that complements the existing infrastructure, including the Merchant, Montage, Dockside and Mosaic apartment buildings, and surrounding environment.” The developers believe the new project will contribute to the diversity of Victoria Harbour’s residential offering by attracting first-home buyers and property investors with a desire for affordable, sustainable living.

Sustainability is key to the project. Aiming for a four-star rated green multi-unit residential accreditation from the Green Building Council of Australia, Melbourne architectural firm Hayball has used a range of sustainable design features including smart metering to monitor energy and water use, floor-to-ceiling, double-glazed, low-E glazing to maximise energy efficiency, solar-boosted hot water and energy and water-efficient fixtures and fittings. Hayball has enhanced the development’s indoor environmental quality by ensuring natural light and ventilation to the lobbies and corridors and using low-volatility organic compounds and low formaldehyde-emitting materials. To encourage the use of sustainable forms of transport and promote Victoria Harbour as a place where residents can easily live without owning a car, Serrata will also offer a car-share service and efficient pedestrian and bicycle access as well as secure bike racks for every apartment and secure visitor bike storage. Serrata will have 61 one-bedroom apartments and 83 two-bedroom apartments, with prices starting at $385,000. Apartments will have views over the Victoria Green Park, in the heart of Docklands, or the Melbourne CBD. \

Location

Serrata is in the heart of Victoria Harbour, in Melbourne’s Docklands. The Collins Street tram is a short walk from the front door, as is Southern Cross Station. Victoria Harbour has a sprinkling of cafés offering a morning coffee fix and the development is walking distance to Docklands restaurants and cafés. Etihad Stadium brings football and top entertainment acts into the precinct. Serrata residents can make a quick getaway to Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine via the Westgate Freeway or over the Westgate Bridge to the Surf Coast. may 4, 2011 \ The weekly review 51

A MAtter of Degree Newmarket Hotel Re-opened in December 2010, The Newmarket Hotel was commissioned by The Melbourne Pub Group, the same client behind the Middle Park Hotel, The Albert Park Hotel and the Royal Saxon. The brief was to design a pub that understood St Kilda’s history and needs while also relating to locals and visitors in a relaxed way. The project consists of a collection of four main spaces stitched together to form a unified building. The old building fabric has been retained to provide an understanding of past histories and has also been linked to the new. (CouRTeSy Six DeGReeS)

The vaults Six Degrees was approached in 2003 to explore reactivating this neglected Federation Square area (right). The main challenges were the heritage significance of the façade and vault structures, and also providing adequate services delivery. Today, the vaults are among Melbourne’s greatest treasures. 58 The weekly review \ may 4, 2011


Melbourne-based firm Six Degrees has had a significant effect on the city’s social and architectural fabric. FranceSca carter sits down with two of the directors and discovers that nothing is off limits.

T

he Weekly Review office looks a bit like a deserted furniture shop. There are concrete walls, long, pre-loved, canteen-style tables and bench units, wooden beams, painted floors, blocks of colour and overhanging industrial features. The meeting room has been entirely constructed with materials collected from an old basketball court. Sliced up yellow boundary lines are structurally displayed across deep-cavity walls. It’s a cleverly devised collage of used and recycled materials. Anyone who has read an architecture magazine, would identify these visual markers as the work of Six Degrees Architects. Even punters will recognise their indelible stamp, as the story of Melbourne’s hospitality design runs almost seamlessly in tandem with the life of the firm. “We are very driven by a layered approach to architecture,” says director Mark Healy. “We’re not really the lightbox type of architects. Stripped back, broad stainless steel is not us at all.” As the name suggests, Six Degrees is the collaboration of six architects who were sharing a studio space in 1991. Struggling to find work in “the recession we had to have”, they joined forces and began working as a single entity. Within a couple of years, they established a reputation for creating dynamic spaces from existing shells. “We have always enjoyed working with old buildings because they come with a whole lot of stories and layers of history that we can bounce off,” says director James Legge. “We like putting down another layer of history. And this has led us to a lot of precinct work because most of it involves building into existing shells and buildings. This sense of adaptive re-use is what we are interested in.” This aesthetic of merging the old with the new and experimenting with themes of memory and meaning is further reinforced by their idiosyncratic choice of vintage and used materials. “Back when we started we were using recycled materials because they were cheaper. Now they’re just more expensive,” says Healy. Juxtaposing plywood with industrial components has become a trademark style. But as Legge suggests, material choices are never based on the tides of architectural fashion, but rather on their quality and longevity. “We are interested in using materials that are not necessarily expensive, but use well and use in a way that is going to work,” says Legge. “It’s got to do with looking at things and asking, where do they come from? How long will it last? Are we using bluestone out of China when we could be using bluestone from Victoria? It’s essentially a holistic approach, which is really what architecture should always be.” Six Degrees first came into the limelight in 1995 when it developed a well-known, award-winning bar called 20 Meyers Place. Called the “first laneway bar” in Melbourne, Meyers Place was a result of unguarded talent, a little bit of luck and a relaxation of the licensing laws. “We often think and sometimes wonder, whether we have been surfing the zeitgeist,” says Legge. “If we hadn’t done a little bar in a laneway that was so incredibly successful, someone else might have done it three months later.” Meyers Place quickly came to the forefront of Melbourne’s flourishing bar scene. It made an important contribution to street life spearheading the concept of small, inside/outside, European-style hospitality. Even 15 years later the legacy lives on and, like a lot

of Six Degrees’ hospitality designs, it’s still a popular hangout for the artsy crowd. “We opened Meyers Place because we were sick of drinking in pubs,” says Legge. “We wanted to create a place where you could go and have a chat and not have to yell over the band thrashing in the next room.” Over their 20-year career the archtitects’ series of unique designs and laneway hotspots have defined Melbourne’s topography. With their multiform seating options and the inclusion of the outdoor environment, they have influenced the mindset of Melburnians, suggesting

their designs and laneway hotspots have defined Melbourne’s topography

that there is more to a bar than liquor. Three Below, Blue Bar, Auction Rooms, Public House, Albert Park Hotel and Middle Park Hotel, Royal Saxon, Newmarket Hotel are just few of the iconic places that make up their impressive repertoire of work. “We enjoy creating spaces that people enjoy inhabiting,” says Legge. “Rather than fall onto the landscape, we look at the actual spaces. This commonly differentiates our work from other architects because our spaces have an intimacy and a variety about them. You always have a choice on how to inhabit the space.” Among their most successful transformations of space are the once-derelict, rat-infested bluestone boatsheds known as the Princes Walk Vaults, tucked beneath Federation Square. Six Degrees provided an innovative approach to this formerly rundown part of the city, converting it into a bar/café, Six Degrees offices, boatsheds and bike racks. It was a project that was honoured with an inaugural Planning Minister’s Heritage Award in 2008. “Everyone loves coming to work,” says Legge. “Everyone rides their bikes and pulls up on the river’s edge. We are all a bit blasé about it, really. You don’t get a much better view of Melbourne than here.” The offices are spread across six vaults. From the front they look like gigantic fish bowls, a design very similar to the Pelican in Fitzroy Street. Once inside, it’s a clearly organised working mechanism, with four vaults each seating three people and the final two housing a kitchen and dining area. But as Healy professes one of the best things about working in the vaults is the proximity to Riverland Bar – a Melbourne hotspot that spills out onto the Yarra River with picnic-style tables and benches. “I think the reason Riverland works so well is because it’s an inclusive, high-use space that attracts the old crew, young crew, the groovy, the daggy, the tourists and even the locals,” says Healy. “And that’s what we’re really interested in: ideas of inclusive space. “Our hospitality stuff might be groovy for two months with that crew that just float around, but it usually stays because it has that kind of wider appeal. It’s not overly fashionable but it’s always inviting.” Describing their work as “accessible” and “people-focused,” the Six Degrees staff have been increasingly prolific with their institutional work. Surprisingly, this now makes up most of their work. They have been commissioned by hospitals, charity

organisations, universities, schools, cultural centres and government and council institutions. “Traditionally people have specialised in health architecture or sport architecture. We kind of cross a ridiculously wide range, but it’s essentially about idea-driven solutions,” says Healy. “We like the responsibility of architecture and 9.9 times out of 10 we will choose the school extension over the great big house because that’s more important to us as a practice. That’s where we get our jollies.” The renovation and refurbishment of the Deakin University library is a project that fits into this category. The brief was to reject the traditional 1960s model of a library composed of rows of books, carrels and desks and look at a more contemporary paradigm. “The reality is Gen Y studies in different ways,” says Legge. “They work together much more then previous generations and they need to have those spaces. In that way, interestingly, our work translates quite well. It’s really the same as our hospitality work, in the sense that they are highly used spaces, by relatively young people, the only difference is they work in there instead of drink.”

S

ix Degrees recently completed the University of Tasmania’s School of Architecture at the Launceston campus. The project, a collaboration with architects from Sustainable Built Environments, involved building lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, computer labs, workshops and offices into an existing, heritage-listed 1950s train shed. The campus also included the UTAS Furniture Design building, which won seven awards at state and national levels. The firm received the Sustainable Architecture Award and a Public Architecture Award for seamlessly incorporating “simple sustainable design techniques into an architectural expression that is appropriate not only to the industrial nature of the site, but also the pragmatic requirements of the newly established furniture school”. One of the group’s most exciting projects at the moment is focusing on the redevelopment of the Little India precinct in Dandenong, which runs along Foster Street. Working in collaboration with VicUrban and the City of Greater Dandenong, Little India is predicted to be the largest urban renewal project to be adopted by the Victorian government since the transformation of Docklands. “The danger with this redevelopment is that they might bulldoze the lot and won’t understand where the humanity has gone,” says Legge. “And it’s good that they recognise that they need to have some strategies in place, because this is a precinct that actually works. It has critical mass, and enough interesting small traders and ethnic groups to keep it going and keep it vital.” The future for Six Degrees is limitless. While it has enjoyed a reputation for designing an impressive array of watering holes, the architects now want to shift their focus to designing challenging spaces that tie into the social fabric of Melbourne. “We would love to do courthouse work,” says Healy. “There is that whole sort of dialogue between making it welcoming but also establishing a sense of reverence and gravity of occasion.” With such a diverse portfolio of work it’s likely that Healy will fulfil his ambition, perhaps some time soon. \

firm that designed it. The new buyers can’t believe it’s so relevant and vibrant, and put the age of the house at maybe 30 or 40 years, given its organic and timeless appeal. It’s this kind of response to a house for which b.e architecture strives – and received when the firm’s house at Ross Street in Toorak sold again last month. Long before sustainability became a buzzword, this Prahran-based company has been designing houses with an enduring style that outlives contemporary trends and fads. Not so much minimalist but with a strong sense of rationalism and reductionism, each b.e project reflects a dedication to paring down our culture of excess to what we really need and love. “Today it’s all about consuming more and more things, and we want to hone these spaces down to their most basic premise,” says a company representative for b.e architecture. “There’s a singularity to them. They’re strong, quiet.” Also linking the houses is a process that sets b.e architecture apart from other architecture firms. Each project is the end product of an extensive – even obsessive – commitment to collaborating with clients. If you want your house to be made by b.e, you’ll need to sit down with them, put together a folio, fill out questionnaires and write up briefs. It might seem a little extreme, but the people at b.e insist on knowing who you are and how you live before they construct your home. “What a person needs and likes is not always obvious. Clients come to us with ideas and we ask them to be actively involved. Collaboration pushes us in a certain way,” says the representative. But it’s not for everybody, as b.e explicitly sets out. For those who know what they want and are happy to become part of the process, it’s a refreshing opportunity to combine personal likes and dislikes with experience. “We’re driving the car but they have the directions,” he says. “There’s a magic that comes from the collaboration with clients. When it works, it’s a tangible feeling.” Most of b.e’s clients are third- or fourth-home owners. They often have established collections of furniture, collections of artworks. Knowing how they live gives b.e the ability to construct a home around their lives, rather than the

other way around. This is the philosophy behind b.e. “We work with people who love their homes. We don’t have a signature style as much as a signature approach: it’s the science of many things coming together. This is what architecture is about,” says the representative. It says a lot about b.e’s need for space that 50 per cent of its projects are located in rural or coastal areas. It also reflects the company’s desire to use natural materials – recycled brick, stone, concrete and cement render feature prominently throughout these properties. This is no attempt to pay lip service to environmentally sustainable design, but a more “genuine” approach to giving people what they want and what can stand the test of time – even if this means choosing plantation wood from overseas over local, recycled timber. “We’re not part of any current trends; not interested in what’s going on in the marketplace. It’s a hackneyed phrase, but we like to create timeless houses, not ones linked to a certain time,” says the representative. “It’s not just about sustainability, it’s about creating something that will last, and taking responsibility for what you do. Will it be as good in 10 years? Will it get better with age?” Rising above trends is a big part of what b.e architecture does – and it’s not easy. But being holistic in its approach to projects and drawing on the

collaboration of the b.e team and clients allows the firm to think big. “It’s very easy to be gestural and have big brush strokes. But very easy concepts like beauty, trying to meet things head-on, can defy you,” the representative said. “Today people are pulling down houses that are 10-15 years old. People forget that design is something that endures.” \

majestic and sO reFined This freestanding Victorian terrace shows the benefit of an architectural renovation, writes MARIA HARRIS.

t

he grand Victorian terrace house says Melbourne as much as the footy and the Boxing Day Test. Terrace houses line many inner-suburban streets, but rarely do you find one as majestic, refined and beautifully restored and extended as the one at 30 Sutherland Road. It is not part of a row. This house is freestanding and was probably built in the 1880s when economic times were good. Renovated 10 years ago under the supervision of architect Col Bandy, it shows that when a renovation and extension are done well – usually by an architect – they do not date. A fresh coat of white paint and newly polished floors are the only recent works. The house is currently configured with three upstairs

bedrooms, but a study and several living rooms could also become bedrooms if required. Next to Armadale Reserve, it occupies a large block of just slightly more than 750 square metres, with garage entry from a right-of-way at the back of the property. Cream-painted cast-iron decorative pillars support the elaborate balcony and stained-glass windows around the black-painted front door immediately set the scene for what’s ahead. And it’s a fantastic journey. This house has excellent proportions with high ceilings, deep cornices, ceiling roses and architraves and a wide hall that continues past the staircase to the informal living zone. On the left is the conventional sitting room, separated from the adjoining dining room by white-painted timber cavity sliding doors. Both rooms are painted white and have white marble fireplaces.


“QUITE SIMPLY ARMADALE’S LARGEST AND BEST VICTORIAN HOUSE.” NATHAN WATERSON – AGENT The Victorian terrace house was typically dark, in part to protect the furniture from sunlight but also because that’s how Victorians liked to live. More than 100 years later families want light-filled interiors, and this house delivers them. Natural light streams in from large windows in the front living room and also french doors that open the dining room to a north-east-facing patio. The study also opens to this patio. At the end of the hall is the familiar big open-plan kitchen/dining/living room. It is a great extension, simple and without fuss or frills and maintains the proportions of the house. The high ceilings and well-placed windows make this extension stand out, as does emphasis on simple shapes and practical spaces. Materials such as white marble benchtops, including an island bench, white high-gloss emporite cabinetry and the same floorboards are used in the kitchen/dining area, the walk-in pantry and laundry. Sunlight floods the room from the north-facing windows above the kitchen bench and also from the large windows on the northern and eastern walls of the living room. Glass doors in the rear wall open to a bluestone-paved terrace for outdoor entertaining. From here the paving continues past the lap pool and garden to the triple garage with an upstairs studio. Back inside, the carpeted staircase with polished timber handrail leads to the typical Victorian split landing with stairs leading to the front of the house and another set going to the back. At the front, the room that is usually the main bedroom is a library with walls of shelving and a white marble open fireplace on one wall. Two traditional double-hung sash windows open to the first-floor balcony. The main bedroom, which also has a marble fireplace, is next to the library. It features a walk-through wardrobe with shelving and floor-to ceiling storage. An en suite, with deep-grey stone benchtops, uses mirrors to make the space appear larger. The family bathroom also has dark-grey stone benchtops, white cabinets and mirrors. The hall, which goes past the bathroom towards the back of the house, opens to a large carpeted retreat with more purpose-built shelving. Two large bedrooms off the retreat look great for children. \

ARMADALE

7 KILOMETRES SOUTH-EAST OF CBD The suburb takes its name from Armadale House in Kooyong Road, built in 1876 and named after Armadale, Sutherland, in Scotland. Armadale House’s first owner, Sir James Munro, was born in Armadale, Scotland. The area developed quickly after the railway line went through to Oakleigh in the late 1870s. Armadale is one of Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs. It is known for its rich and diverse architectural styles, which include grand Victorian mansions, Victorian and Edwardian villas through to the identical Victorian cottages of Cambridge Street. Many of the original large properties have been subdivided, especially during the building boom of the 1960s, when many big houses were demolished and large blocks of flats built. High Street, Armadale, is a mecca for shoppers, foodies and fashionistas. It is known for its antique shops, homewares and gift shops, jewellery shops, fashion boutiques and bridal shops. There is a seemingly endless supply of shops serving fresh food, cafés and restaurants and a Thomas Dux supermarket. Armadale has a railway station, and Toorak station is also in Armadale. Trams run along Glenferrie Road, High Street, Malvern Road and Dandenong Road.

How this suburb has moved: Up by 4.7 per cent to the end of the March 2011 quarter. * REIV stats may 4, 2011 \ The weekly review 65

Solid-brick double-fronted Victorian houses are something of a rarity in the streets between Tooronga and Burke roads, where most of the houses date from the 1920s or later. This one, built in 1892, is one of only two Victorian houses in St Helens Road. It has been extended and renovated to produce a beautiful blend of historical features with contemporary interiors and finishes. The façade of verandah and slate roof and interiors with central hall, high ceilings and fireplaces are classic Victorian. An extension at the end of the hall includes the open-plan living/dining/kitchen with granite benchtops, white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Large sliding glass doors open to a brick-paved terrace with steps leading up to a garden with central lawn. A courtyard is off the main bedroom. Ducted heating, security and off-street parking are more features. It is close to several schools, including Auburn South Primary School. \ MARIA HARRIS

Behind a secure picket fence stands a deceptively large block-fronted Edwardian house, only a minute’s walk to Ardrie Park. A manicured front garden leads to a traditional entry, where a long arched hallway and high ceilings give a perspective of just how long this block is. The main bedroom, at the front of the house, is also larger than expected and has built-in wardrobes and plantation shutters. The modern central bathroom hides a European laundry and a separate toilet. Two more bedrooms complete the original part of the house. Down a step is the open-plan extension, where there is a freestanding Smeg cooktop and walk-in pantry in the white kitchen. The adjoining meals area has built-in shelving and overlooks the living room. Here, a feature wall has a large open fireplace and concertina doors that open to the long back garden with a brick dining area, grass terrace and original garage. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

Set behind Stradbroke Park, this renovated 1940s house looks like a great spot for families as it is close to the shops in Burke Road, Harp Road and High Street. Four bedrooms (two with a dual-access bathroom), spacious living and dining rooms, a large open kitchen/family area and a large backyard with a brilliant pergola-covered entertainment patio create an amazingly accommodating house.

IF YOU FIND THE RIGHT HOUSE FOR YOU, DON’T HESITATE 28 last APRIL  year was auspicious, not only

for the launch of The Weekly Review, but it also represented the turning point from the post-global financial crisis sellers’ market to the current buyers’ market. Since then, Melbourne’s million-dollar-plus market has been in one of the longest, most sustained buyers’ markets this decade. For buyers, the past year has presented several great opportunities to get into the market or to trade up. The economy has been strong enough for banks to be happy to lend. And as for buyers, most have felt secure enough in their jobs to take the plunge into house ownership. If you bought property in the past year, you have entered the market while prices have been for the most part flat or falling and supply has been plentiful enough and of sufficient quality to allow for meaningful choice. It has been about as good as it gets for buyers. But that’s all in the past. As we look ahead to The Weekly Review’s second anniversary edition, what we really want to know is what is likely to happen between 68 The weekly review \ may 4, 2011

now and then. In Melbourne, are we on a precipice or are we just experiencing the gyrations of a normal market? If you listened to some of the statistical experts, you would believe it was the former. The flat-to-falling market of the past year has brought out the usual headline commentary that Melbourne is overpriced. Some of the “statistical experts” have predicted a fall in prices, somewhere between Armageddon and a soft landing. Others, though, have pointed to economic indicators that suggest an increased population – though migration, limited inner-Melbourne housing supply as well as stable economic and political conditions all mean we are likely to have a solid and perhaps gently improving market for the next year or so. While I tend to believe the latter, I believe it holds true mainly for quality, well-positioned houses with a high land content. So how can we argue that case against the experience of the rest of the world? It’s not that Melbourne was completely insulated from the economic fallout that so badly impacted on housing markets around the world. Following the global financial crisis, 2008 Melbourne did experience a drop of up to 25 per cent on the previous year’s

FOR THE MARKET TO STAY HEALTHY, THERE NEEDS TO BE ONGOING DEMAND prices. People seem to have forgotten that when demand dropped – and actually disappeared in some instances against a fully supplied market – we had some catastrophic price drops (especially for forced sellers). However, the global financial crisis just didn’t last as long for Australians, mainly because by early 2009 we had a game-changer in the form of a surge of demand from buyers from the Asia-Pacific region. Then, within six months, demand picked up more widely from several other sources – mainly local. So our market wasn’t any different to other world markets, it just got some demand that exceeded supply. Sure, the demand from the Asia-Pacific may go. The dollar has forced a bit of retreat anyway. But that is not the big picture – demand is the big picture. For the market to stay healthy, there needs to be ongoing demand. The current headlines regarding

Queensland apartments are similarly about disappearing demand against a fully supplied market. The huge drops in Queensland apartment asking prices – in some cases from $10 million down to $6 million – are purely a supply-and-demand issue. If demand picks up in Las Vegas or Mumbai or outer London to such an extent that it exceeds supply, then prices will rise there also, just as they eventually will in the Queensland apartment market and just as they did in Melbourne in 2009. So what do I think will happen in 2011/2012 in Melbourne with our schools, our law and order, our lifestyles and our immigration? I think local and international buyers will make their own emotional and financial decisions about our land and our buildings and price. But if I were a betting man, over the next 10 years with all the information I have in front of me, I would be a buyer rather than a seller, and if I was a buyer and found the right house that suited my family’s needs in the next year, then I would be a buyer ahead of all else. \ MAL JAMES Principal Buyer Advocate 0408 107 988 \ 9804 3133 WE ONLY BUY HOMES www.james.net.au
