I asked this of Martin Culkin, the inspiring uncomfortable feeling of feet that have run bare principal of the reborn Hawthorn Secondary College all summer being slid into hard, leather shoes, but – now Auburn High – who has embarked on the most with an equally uncomfortable demographic reality. ambitious and admirable project: the re-creation of According to a recent Productivity Commission a failing state school as an aspirational, competitive, report, more Australian children than ever are first-class government school. The school was renamed, being educated in private schools, confirming a new uniform created, a new subject base the so-called “drift” away from government established, and all staff reapplied for their jobs. education.

Here’s a question I have long just like this: a nondescript suburban school led by an wanted answered: what made these schools so good exceptional educator, who in turn inspired a youthful in the first place, and why don’t other schools try to be and enthusiastic staff. I loved my time there and I did

well. I don’t think the school, before or since, was ever as good. It wasn’t about the buildings: it was all about the people who ran it. David Gillespie, the author of Free Schools, a controversial new book that argues that you get no better education for your children by buying a private one than you do at a state school, insists school success is mostly all about the leadership team. He comes from the world of corporate law, so he is hardwired to admire leadership, but his argument is persuasive: an effective, committed principal, school council, senior teacher group and parent body can create a successful school. Culkin clearly agrees with this, and further argues that, despite being in the government sector, you can use the procedures available to you to move the bad teachers on and get the great ones in. It’s not easy, he says, but if you are unwavering, you can build the team you need. Why don’t more government schools do this? Clearly, it is hard work and takes the kind of dedication and ambition that, to continue our corporate parallel, only the best and most successful companies ever have. But when you are in receipt of so much taxpayer money and responsible for the future of so many young people, I wonder why any principal would not want to. \

A

corpse with a nasty head wound is chasing peas around his plate with a fork. Sharing the table is actor Craig McLachlan, who has slipped out of character to consume a roast beef lunch with the cast and crew of The Doctor Blake Mysteries. McLachlan, as Ballarat GP Dr Lucien Blake, has had a busy night in forensics, judging by the running sheet for the day’s filming at a Port Melbourne warehouse. There are nine scenes to shoot resulting in just nine minutes of screen time for series two of the ABC TV drama. It’s a slow process to put together 10 episodes but director Pino Amenta seems pleased with the day’s progress. McLachlan slips away to the make-up department while the corpse finishes his meal. They’re scheduled to meet again at the morgue slab after the crew sets up cameras for the next scene. The doctor’s slab is about the only thing McLachlan’s latest work in TV has in common with his upcoming role in the cult stage musical The Rocky Horror Show. McLachlan’s blue eyes sparkle in anticipation of the time warp that is about to transport him from the morgue slab at Dr Blake’s respectable 1950s Ballarat surgery to the experimental science slab in the lab at Dr Frank N. Furter’s creepy castle. McLachlan is reprising the role of pansexual, cross-dressing mad scientist Frank in the 40th anniversary production of The Rocky Horror Show, a role he played in Melbourne 22 years ago. Richard O’Brien’s popular musical has been revamped by British director Christopher Luscombe and has just completed a successful British tour. It began its Australian capital city tour in Brisbane in January and arrives at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre in April, with McLachlan starring alongside Christie Whelan Browne, Tim Maddren, Ashlea Pyke and Erika Heynatz. McLachlan was at primary school in Sydney, and just starting the guitar lessons that would take him all the way to a pop career, when he first encountered the sexually charged schlock-horror musical inspired by B-grade science fiction movies. “When I was a kid my cousin sneaked me in to see the show – I was way too young to go,” he says. “She was charged with babysitting duty but a girlfriend of hers got Rocky tickets so I saw Reg Livermore as Frank.” McLachlan, 48, last played Frank in 1992 in producer Paul Dainty’s The New Rocky Horror Show. Then in his mid-20s, he says he gleefully donned the stockings, lingerie, stilettos and heavy make-up of transvestite Frank to escape his “golden boy” image, a legacy of years of soapie drama in Neighbours, as gardener Henry Ramsay, and Home and Away as teacher Grant Mitchell. That golden status had been firmly cemented with a coveted gold Logie in 1990 for most popular personality on Australian television for his role in Neighbours. “For better or worse, starting out in this business in Australia in the ’80s – in the golden period of Kylie and Jason – I am living, breathing proof that it was a tough period to come out of and continue in the industry, and in the game of being taken seriously,” McLachlan says. “I thought if there’s any way I can take a step away from a neighbourhood like Erinsborough, there’s no better way to shake things off than to wear stilettos, stockings and little French knickers and be outrageous. I delighted in that.” In 1992, McLachlan shared the Rocky stage with Gina Riley, Peter Rowsthorn, Red Symons, Wilbur Wilde, Stephen Kearney, Linda Nagle, Christopher Kirby and Alyssa-Jane Cook. “We had a brilliant company and cast and it was a shared 6 The weekly review \ FEBRUARY 12, 2014

education for us all. That group was very special,” McLachlan says. “It was all about the excitement of shaking things up – ‘Look at me! I’m in the gear, singing these great rock’n’roll tunes’.” McLachlan recalls a letter to a newspaper expressing outrage that Neighbours’ much-loved Henry had so dramatically switched persona to wear a scanty costume when he was “a role model for our kids”. But as Kerrie Theobald, his publicist of nearly 30 years (since Neighbours), points out, while Frank was certainly a switch in character, McLachlan often appeared shirtless in front of millions of soapie viewers. “He’d often be mowing the lawn shirtless and in his Speedos. He was a very fit young man, so why not?” Theobald says. “People remember Henry with the golden mullet lovingly. Neighbours had a nine million audience reach. It was an absolute phenomenon and top-rated overnight. It was a unique period of history.”

M

cLachlan is now enjoying his second wind as a TV star, thanks to the ratings success of The Doctor Blake Mysteries, which is in its second series. The show has been picked up by the BBC in Britain, where Blake’s co-creator, George Adams, was a drama production executive. McLachlan first read a draft script for Blake two years ago. “I connected with it on a few levels … I couldn’t get the damn thing out of my head … but I knew they were looking for a much older Dr Blake,” he says. “I completely got what George Adams was trying to create here, having worked for the BBC and knowing how they go about putting their productions together. I knew what he was doing and I wanted to be a part of it. I wanted the opportunity to age myself and be seen, certainly in Australia, in a more mature light.” McLachlan was in Los Angeles, completing immigration paperwork for a “green card” that would allow him to work in the United States, when his agent emailed him the Blake script and suggested he try for a role. “For years and years the US had been on my mind and friends had been saying to give it a crack while you’re still young enough and, dare I say it, pretty enough – kind of them to say it – and while you’ve still got gas in the tank. I always had a pretty pragmatic view that you couldn’t do that well unless you make a splash in the US market on the back of an Australian hit TV series or film, whether it’s a Muriel’s Wedding or a Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.” McLachlan worked for many years in England, where his 13-year-old son Jacob lives with his mother, actor Charlotte Avery. He had lead roles in West End musicals, including Robert Stigwood’s Grease, and varied TV and film work. He even ice-skated in the British reality celebrity show Dancing on Ice. When he did “give the US a crack” in 2011, he was instantly offered a guest role with NCIS: Los Angeles alongside Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J. “It was just a wonderful experience,” he says. But he also spent that week of filming in a boat on the bay off Los Angeles squinting into the sun and growing whiskers in an effort to age himself. Then he asked a friend to film his Blake audition on a mobile phone and send it to Adams. McLachlan says he didn’t formally audition for Frank in The Rocky Horror Show. When he figured he could make the show dates work in with his Blake commitments, he met director Christopher Luscombe in Sydney last year.

“I wanted to go in and meet Chris. If I was going to revisit something very dear to me, I didn’t want to give my energy to it if I didn’t feel it was going to enhance the experience I had already had. “It’s interesting upon reflection; I was in my 20s the first time I did it. Then I approached it with a bucket-load of excitement. It was all about getting the gear on and singing the songs. I identified and nailed the laughs and gags, but beyond that I never examined the text. “I remember chatting to Richard O’Brien about the darker, more tortured side of Frank. He’s right in saying to go back and look at the text. There are things that I purely and simply didn’t get as a younger man … I didn’t have the life experience to know what the author was getting at.” It had been 22 years since McLachlan first read the Rocky script but he says he could instantly recall dialogue for Luscombe and Australian producer John Frost, and did a scene switching voices from Frank to Brad to Janet. “I barked out some tunes, too. It was just riotous, and I knew in my heart Chris and I are on the same page.” Right on cue, sitting at the Blake lunch table, McLachlan switches from genial GP to flirtatious Frank and delivers a dozen lines from Rocky. It’s disconcerting but delightful to hear Blake do Frank. He is always lurking, says McLachlan. “I remember Richard O’Brien saying years ago that once Frank is inside you, you never get him out.” \ lhall@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Rocky Horror Show opens in Melbourne on April 24. www.rockyhorror.com.au » The Doctor Blake Mysteries airs on ABC1, Friday at 8.30pm.

My view \ KATRINA HALL AIMS SMALL AND SURVIVES THE HOLIDAYS

I

(iStockphoto / THINKSTOCK)

just managed to get through the whole school holidays without seeing a kids’ movie at the cinema. They went to see plenty. The other adult in this house loves kids’ movies. He loves anime, animation and animals who talk. He also loves having Maltesers and popcorn for lunch, so they caught up with all the new releases, paying outrageously for the privilege. It costs at least $100 to take a family of four to the pics, so I say no, no, no, you guys go, I’d rather save the dosh and fold the washing. And I would. A neat pile of folded washing is infinitely more satisfying for me than a singing Smurf or an animated meatball. I can’t bear the noise of kids’ movies, the roaring dragons and screaming kids with swords. I can’t do fairies or vampires or Scottish accents, and action movies just make me stressed. I can’t bear the other parents because, by week three of the holidays, we all have a whiff of desperation about us. Our faces worn down with requests, our eyes all needy and nap-ready, and we’re holding on to their hands for dear life because no one has the energy to take off after them if they escape. That day has passed. I avoided big days out these holidays as well, for reasons outlined above and because I’ve learnt the hard way. Too many times I’ve set off with high expectations and Vegemite sandwiches for a day at the zoo or museum, only to return home deflated, wretched, wondering why I bothered to explain the intricacies of etymology and the peculiar insides of Phar Lap when all they cared about was who got to sit in the front seat and could they have an icy pole. Multiple in-house play dates and sleepovers were off the list this year, too, despite regular texts from my seven-year-old’s best friend announcing she was

available for a play after 2pm and could she sleep at our house. She was texting from her mum’s phone, of course, because she’s seven, but sometimes I wonder if the texts might actually be from her mum, incognito, because we all need a break sometimes. But I’m not having sleepovers here and I’m not making pancakes at midnight for kids who can’t sleep, or calling parents to collect their sobbing offspring because they’re scared or over-sugared, and I’m sick of worrying about whether it’s OK for the host parent to go to sleep before the kids. In fact, I think sleepovers are outrageously overrated and, deep down, kids know this. It’s not easy trying to nod off in a wrinkled sleeping bag on someone else’s lounge room floor when the birthday kid passed out hours ago and you’re not sure where the loo is. But once you’re on the sleepover juggernaut it’s hard to get off. Sleepovers are like clubbing for primary-school kids and, just like clubbing, it sure can make them cranky and tired for days afterwards. What kids don’t know is that if the parents have been clever enough to organise simultaneous off-site sleepovers for all their kids, home is where the real party is. These holidays we put ambitious plans aside. We spent a lot of time with our legs up on the arms of the couch, eating nectarines, laughing at the dogs, swimming in the blow-up pool and watching whatever was on the TV, which was generally not much. And it wasn’t so bad, really. \ khall@theweeklyreview.com.au

here’s something just lovely about enjoying a glass of wine outdoors. It’s not the sunshine and warm air at this time of year that make it so appealing to me, but the smell of the wine as a breeze blows over the glass, turbocharging the aromatics. We’ve been doing a load of outdoor eating this summer and, for most of 2013, all outdoor drinks were consumed out of plastic tumblers bought at the kids’ section of Ikea, chosen to survive all the bumps of the bike ride to and from home in Richmond. Late last year, I invested in a decent set of acrylic stemware from Plumm and have cursed not having bought a box long ago. Plumm has a range of locally designed glassware to suit all styles of wine – from aromatic whites to brooding reds – and there’s an acrylic version of each that matches those made from glass. Despite being a sucker for making sure the right glass is used to serve wine at home – pinot noir simply must be served in a pinot glass at our house – I went for a universal glass, the Plumm Outdoors red or white, which cost $40 for four. We’re not just using them for wine; they have become the go-to vessels for negronis and G&Ts. (See www.plumm.com) While I’m happy with my Plumms, there’s one thing missing in the range: a decanter. I like to decant every red wine and many whites that are bottled under screwcap, and found a decanter in the GoVino range of outdoor wine glasses. The GoVino glasses are all stemless, with a low centre of gravity. Just perfect for people like me who are prone to knocking tall glasses all over picnic rugs. (Check out www.wineonthego.com.au) I’m sure I’m not the only person who looks for convenience when drinking outdoors, especially at picnics. For me, convenience means bottles with screwcaps and casks – there’s

nothing more humiliating than trying to hack the cork out of a bottle because you forgot to pack the corkscrew – and cans of beer, which are lighter to lug around. One of the best innovations in wine recently is the sparkling screwcap. They come in particularly handy because they can lie flat on a picnic rug – no more searching for a stable surface. De Bortoli pioneered the invention a couple of years ago, launching it with its Willowglen sparkling range. Now, Australia’s biggest-selling sparkling wine, Yellow by Yellowglen, has adopted the closure. While screwcaps have all but replaced corks for still wines, there’s little chance of the same happening universally for sparkling. The pressure inside a bottle of traditional méthode champenoise sparkling, where a secondary fermentation adds the bubbles in the bottle, is too great for the screwcap. Most sub-$20 bottles of sparkling are made using a cheaper method, known as charmat, where the bubbles are naturally added in a tank before the wine is bottled. The pressure inside a bottle of charmat method sparkling is about half that of the méthode champenoise. The only thing missing with a sparkling screwcap is the pop. Craft beer in cans is another innovation we’ve seen in the past year. Richmond brewer Mountain Goat put its summer ale into cans and there are loads of canned imports around. Brooklyn Lager in a can is a current favourite. Remember where you heard this first – the cask might just be making a comeback. Yalumba has released a range of cask wines under the Winesmith label, and the chardonnay and tempranillo (there’s also a pinot grigio and shiraz) are smart wines at $19 for two litres. \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au

or a celebrity, Italian singer and heartthrob Patrizio Buanne is refreshingly frank. Or at least he’s well-practised in giving that impression. We’ve been at a South Melbourne café for less than a minute before he confides he has trouble finding a girlfriend. “I’m single because it’s very hard,” he says. “I don’t want to be with a celebrity, but then the normal girl doesn’t really understand my world. They say when there’s real love, there’s a way around all of that, but it hasn’t happened yet to me.” This unlikely tale of romantic hardship is quickly compounded by the admission that he once made the mistake of dating a fan. “Everybody tells you: don’t get too close to a fan. I did. At some point, I fell in love with one,’’ he says. “But then I realised there was an agenda for her. Some people just want to be in the spotlight, they want to be the girlfriend of the famous singer and they think it’s all glamour. By the time you realise that, it’s painful.” When did he first realise the relationship was doomed? “There were little lies here and there. I’d tell her I was busy and she’d still turn up. At the end of the day, when the lights are off and I’ve taken off my fancy stage clothes, I’m just a simple person.” I’m not sure I entirely believe these claims of down-to-earth asceticism.

In the hour we spend together, he name-drops Tom Jones, Geri Halliwell, Gwen Stefani and Amy Winehouse as friends, neighbours and potential paramours.

Because in 20 years, someone might say ‘I want to dance with you’. The story hits a nerve. The only thing that is important is to be credible.

I wonder what drives a handsome young man to sing such old-fashioned music. Shouldn’t he be singing something a bit, well, cooler? Buanne is far too charming to bristle at this jibe. “Allow myself to correct the idea that it’s old music,” he says. “I sing songs of the era of Tom Jones or Elvis Presley, but they’re timeless.” Given his second album featured a recording of Robbie Williams’ 1997 hit Angels alongside older

if identifying a brand. He’s aware of his unique selling points – European, crooner, multilinguist – and takes care to dismiss comparisons with Michael Bublé and Celine Dion before I’ve had a chance to raise them. Still, his professed desire to be himself helps explain his unusual choice of genre. “I wanted to be a rock’n’roll singer, but my name is Patrizio Buanne. I come from a proud Italian background,’’ he says. “My dad died when I was 17. I promised him I was going to make music my career, but my name doesn’t

sound very rock’n’roll. If I’d shortened it, I would have become Pat Boone.” Buanne’s Australian fan base has grown in recent years, leading to a series of return engagements. This month’s gig at Hamer Hall marks his second Melbourne appearance in six months. I’m curious to know what sort of punter he draws, given his unfashionable stylings. He says the audience has changed from an older generation of Italian immigrants to a younger crowd who watched him on Dancing With The Stars. “All the mums and grandmothers bought my record, but then the daughters and the nieces found it and saw a young chap and thought, ‘Oh, he’s cute and the music doesn’t sound as corny as I thought’,” he says. Do any men come to his shows? “Yes. Some of them have to, because they have no choice. I hate comparing myself with anybody, but I think I’ve reached a tipping point where guys want to be friends with me, like Frank Sinatra.” As comparisons go, Ol’ Blue Eyes is top of the heap. But there’s nothing wrong with indecent ambition, not when it’s delivered with such charming frankness. \ mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » Patrizio Buanne plays Hamer Hall on February 20. www.artscentremelbourne.com.au

Developing our city \ The 2013 ArchiTeam Awards showcased a diverse mix of commercial, residential and community designs, writes Sarah Marinos

T

he ArchiTeam Awards raise the profile of small-to-medium-sized architecture firms and recognise their contributions to the state’s architectural landscape. The 2013 winners, announced late last year, include a cardboard stool, a home renovation in semi-industrial Brunswick East, a design studio and an eco cubby in a childcare centre. Here we highlight a few of the innovative designs.

can also be connected to other stools to form larger pieces of furniture. “I use 3D modelling and then send the flat cutting file to a computer cutter,” Horrocks says. “My file is fed into the computer, is cut out and comes back to me for assembling. So I can be designer, engineer, builder and have complete control over the project.” Horrocks began designing his folding furniture using lightweight plywood before discovering the economies and durability of cardboard. So far the Freefold Stool has provided quick bench seating at an art exhibition in Canberra, and participants in an architectural workshop were also recently presented with a flat-packed stool on arrival. They had to assemble it as an “ice-breaker” and it helped start a conversation about design, Horrocks says. He is expanding his furniture range while continuing his architectural work. “I just enjoy doing novel things with cardboard,” he says. \

fter 14 years of working as a professional architect, Tobias Horrocks has turned his attention to sustainable furniture design. Horrocks’ signature piece so far is the Freefold Stool (pictured)– a pop-out stool that takes two minutes to construct, folds into three identical flat-packed pieces and is easily portable. The stool’s sturdiness is due to its double corrugation and multiple folds, and it uses 100 per cent recycled cardboard. The Freefold Stool

ough-sawn Victorian ash cladding emphasises the intricate profile of this renovated and extended Californian bungalow in Brunswick East. The brief for architect Anthony Clarke of BLOXAS was to create a sustainable family home with a liveable interior and an interesting façade. The front three rooms and central bathroom were retained and a reworked kitchen, dining area, children’s retreat and new living space were added. “A lot of warehouses in the area are being turned into apartments and the owners were adamant that they wanted to keep this a single-storey project,” says Clarke. “But they’d been living in quite a small space for a while and they wanted somewhere with more internal and external space, with lots of light and a home that allowed everyone privacy but offered visual connection between the spaces.” Clarke says the timber façade is one of the highlights of the Profile House: “But it had to be subtle and so we used materials that are suburban and of that semi-industrial area.” It incorporates cross-flow ventilation, solar hot water, water harvesting, low-volatile organic compound paints and bamboo floors. “The family is happy to have an airy home with more space and the neighbours are relieved.” \

is that it will gradually biodegrade and the kids will be able to learn about that,” says Statkus. “Around the base we also planted bamboo to grow up the walls. We didn’t want a traditional cubby with a triangular roof and windows.” The roof uses recycled form-ply, and a small water tank has been installed to teach children the importance of conserving water. “Working with the children was interesting. At that age, if they get bored they just get up and walk away,” says Statkus. “It wasn’t a traditional client/architect renovation, extension, new-house project. It was very different and very enjoyable.”

series of workshops with children at Swinburne Prahran Community Children’s Centre helped finalise the design of a modern cubby. Three- and four-year-old children worked alongside Ben Statkus of Statkus Architecture as part of the Regional Arts Victoria Eco-Cubby project. Together they produced drawings and models that evolved into a cubby with a curved-steel frame, bamboo cladding and a water tank that serves as a picnic table. “Once the steel frame was established, we organised a working bee and parents, staff and kids came along to help tie bamboo cladding to the frame using the rubber inner-tubes of bike tyres.

hen Brad Wray and Nicholas Russo of Branch Studio opened their architect practice, they established their office midway between their two homes – in an apple orchard. They designed and built an open, flexible, light-filled space that takes advantage of the views. The studio is a “glass box” with a thin window-glazing system that creates a minimum threshold between their workspace and the outside. With the architects on a tight budget, recycled materials were used where possible. Sheets of old corrugated iron were foraged from nearby paddocks and the glazing was rescued from a commercial project. Inside are untreated plywood floors and ceilings, white walls and layered plywood boxes for storage. “We were going to clad the office with timber batons but decided to do something more interesting with the corrugated iron. It had become rusted and weathered and evokes memories of a rural shack,” says Wray. “But when you get close you can see the studio is quite crafted, with laser-cut joinery that is curved and organic – like the apple trees. The orchard is an amazing environment and we wanted to engage with the views.” \

IRONIC ICONIC \ RACHEL BERGER is on track for love

M

y New Year’s resolution of recommencing yoga classes has already improved my life. A recent pose required that I arch my back while extending my hindquarters like a female baboon in heat. I mastered the posture pretty well, but I’d also created my own version of “reverse thrust” or “negative g”. That’s airplane speak for when the doors at the back of the engines open up and hot gases are expelled at great velocity and directed forward so the aircraft slows down, or, in other words, is put into reverse. The technical term is “eyeballs out” and that’s how I probably looked when I spotted “an average build, genuine, very fit, does salsa, open-minded, explorer” (his description). It’s Valentine’s Day this week and there’s something about sultry nights, pollen and a dozen red roses that makes me want to scratch and burrow into someone else’s armpit. Just before Valentine’s Day I start scrutinising the robustness, tail feathers and hardiness of any male that crosses my path. Thus I found myself across a table from the “explorer”, who never ventured beyond the boundaries of his own ego for however long it took me to eat my lasagna, expel a few hot gases and reverse out of there. He was the sort of guy that hands you the menu with one hand and slips his phone number to the waitress with the other. It was no surprise to discover that in 2013 Australians spent about $300 million on confectionery on Valentine’s Day. But it was gobsmacking to learn that

secret places of the heart

according to a Galaxy Research survey commissioned by the National Australia Bank in 2011, almost a million people ended their relationship on this day. I guess if you think your partner is cheating or you break out in a rash whenever they’re in the room, this is the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate your relationship and if necessary find the “good” in goodbye. But where’s the best location to end your relationship? In Melbourne it has to be on a tram. You say what you need to say and jump off at the next stop. Job done. My suggested route du break-up is Melbourne’s busiest tram line, route number 96. It’s a famous ride, listed as one of the world’s “top 10 trolley car rides” in National Geographic’s Journeys of a Lifetime book (2008). A ride that takes you from East Brunswick through Carlton, the CBD, then past Albert Park before finishing in Acland Street in St Kilda. Almost 40,000 passengers travel daily on route 96, which is 13.9 kilometres long and takes about 50 minutes; a good amount of time to break up and make-up again if you want to. Or, you could choose your moment depending on the passengers; cool Brunswick hipsters and trolley-pushing nonnas replaced by slick city accountants, themselves replaced by St Kilda backpackers. Fortunately, the new French C2 class trams are sleek and minimal with low floors, all the better for leaping out of and disappearing. There’s a kind of sweet melancholy on route 96, where you can feel the tramp of the people who have jumped on board – in and out of your life. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com Follow Rachel on Twitter @boom_berger

If your soon-to-be-ex is cold-blooded, slimy, efficient and brutal in love, take them to the Reptile House at Melbourne Zoo. Here – adopting a David Attenborough-style sotto voce – you can point out the similarities between him/her and the slithery inhabitants. It’s important to remember that these often-loathed creatures are vital to a healthy environment. Everything from highly venomous snakes to fresh-water crocodiles can be closely and safely observed behind glass enclosures. You can get close enough to see each animal’s intricate designs and gorgeous skin patterns, like the beautifully coloured eyelash viper. Remember, there’s always beauty in the beastly. \

The Phoenix For the ancient Egyptians, the phoenix represented longing for immortality. In Christianity it’s linked to the notion of rebirth after death because the phoenix always rises from its own ashes. It’s a metaphor for a new beginning and a useful message when you’re feeling heartbroken. Yrsa Von Leister sculpted this bronze-and-sheet-copper-winged phoenix for the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Melbourne after the 40th International Eucharistic Congress in 1973. Archbishop Knox donated the work to Melbourne City Council, and in 1976 the Most Reverend T.F. Little donated The Phoenix to the citizens of Melbourne. It sits in the gardens opposite the Arts Centre. \

The Separation Tree (Nicholas McConnell)

(Mal Fairclough)

The Reptile House at the Melbourne Zoo

This tree marks the spot in the Royal Botanic Gardens where the citizens of Victoria gathered on November 15, 1850 to celebrate the separation of Victoria from New South Wales. The news reached Melbourne on November 11, but the official proclamation of the new colony of Victoria came on July 1, 1851. The Separation Tree, a eucalyptus camaldulensis or river red gum, predates the gardens; at an estimated 400 years of age, it’s older than Melbourne (although based on diameter growth it could be about 260 years old). Like all old trees, you can feel its magic and majesty – an ideal spot to say “ciao” to the petty aggravations of another love-bungle. \

Feehan says the decision to introduce the technology was made after extensive investigations into technology developments in education, including a visit to Stanford University in the United States. “At Camberwell Girls, education is world-class. This is because we scan the international scene for best practice, have a pragmatic approach to innovation and because we are excited about investing in the future. Our approach is seen in the caring environment, in the use of new technology and in the way our built environment influences learning. Our willingness to be part of the transformation that is occurring will ensure that Camberwell remains at the forefront.” CGGS is one of Victoria’s leading independent girls’ schools; 2013 saw 66 per cent of year 12 students achieve an ATAR score of 90 or above with a median score of 92.75. However, Feehan says that while students at CGGS achieve exceptional academic results, the school places an emphasis on developing students who participate in and give back to the community. “Students here are involved in a lot of activities including our social justice and leadership programs. For us it is not just about ATAR scores.” \ lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au Camberwell Girls Grammar School 2 Torrington Street, Canterbury, 3126 9813 1166 » camgram@camgirls.vic.edu.au » www.camberwellgirls.net

ARMADALE \ 38 Lambeth Avenue The introduction of public transport to Armadale in the 1880s set off the suburb’s first sustained period of growth. Property prices soared as blocks near the tram route along High Street were snapped up. Some of the most ornate houses were built just before 1900. This house on the corner of Lambeth Avenue and Willis Street – metres from High Street – is typical of the boom period, when decorative flourishes such as lace ironwork and tessellated tiled verandahs were the norm. All bedrooms have their original iron fireplaces in as-new condition. All but one have marble mantelpieces. Slate-coloured walls in the hallway play up the beautiful old decorative archways and cornices. A sympathetic renovation a few years ago added modern luxuries such as an en suite for the main bedroom, new bathrooms, a new kitchen and communal area, and an azure-tiled swimming pool. European oak floorboards also replaced the old hardwood floors. There’s a study with a built-in desk that runs the width of the room, and a huge laundry that has Caesarstone benchtops and lots of cupboard space. The stone-topped kitchen has a suite of Miele appliances including a double oven and stovetop, a concealed dishwasher and a deep double sink. \ LEXI COTTEE

Winter Street really gets the best of both worlds. This house is tucked just off Glenferrie Road, so it enjoys the peace and quiet of the back streets, but has the sort of easy access to amenities of which many would dream. With a regular tram service just minutes away, you could easily go without a car, but a garage with a sink, bathroom and workspace at its rear will suit those with two or more cars (there is plenty of room to park in tandem down the driveway). The three-bedroom house is shielded from view by a brick fence and thick row of trees. It’s ’70s-style façade is dominated by Mediterranean-inspired brick archways. The main bedroom at the front of the house has a wall of cupboards and shutter-clad windows and an en suite.

TOORAK \ 65 Heyington Place This is a house recreated from a 1930s residence. Its architectural style is the builder’s free adaption of neo-Georgian: note the placing of the upper central window. The generous central entrance hall is flanked by a sitting room and study and, with the original geometric stair, gives a dramatic double-height space. The family living area that takes up the rear half of the ground floor strikes a contrasting architectural mood: walls of glass and high ceilings. To the right is a kitchen with a central workbench that has deprived cemeteries of an (almost) two-metre-square slab of exotic marble. The family sitting area gives on to a terrace, shielded by a canopy. The barbecue equipment would be at home in any four-star restaurant. A lap pool, served by a shower room completes the rear garden. The upper floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Both children’s bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and share the marble bathroom and a study area. The main bedroom has about 10 metres of fitted wardrobes and an even more luxurious bathroom. The double garage is a rarity: a glass wall in the study gives a full view of three cars (a car hoist provides the third space). The property is close to Heyington Station and two private schools. \ NEIL CLEREHAN

If ever we had a summer when a walk-in coolroom at home made perfect sense, it’s this one – but the owners of this house didn’t install it to combat the heat. “We have a big family, lots of friends, and we like parties,” they said. That explains the plentiful storage, second kitchen, cellar, pool and expansive entertaining spaces inside and out. The 1950s cream-brick veneer on a large, sloping block was extended with split levels many years ago. The vendors’ more recent work includes rendering, painting and modernising, and reinventing the wet areas and kitchen. Formal rooms with bay windows face a neat front garden and join the central kitchen, which opens to a sunny terrace. The family room, upstairs at the back, has a balcony with spiral-staircase access to the garden. Four bedrooms run alongside the driveway that leads to a vast under-house garage. The home feels spacious and comfortable, with a neutral palette and touches of elegance – as well as a very cool coolroom. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

With Malvern East joining the $1 million median price list last month, this house is ready to celebrate. Equal parts family home and entertainer’s delight with a pool and extensive decking, it boasts 540 square metres of land in an area that buyers increasingly value. The house retains its 1940s clinker-brick charm with stained timber trims, a fireplace with a timber mantel in the lounge room, timber floors and sash windows. A 2004 extension carries the brick and timber theme into a family room and adjoining dining space – both with bifold doors to the outdoors – plus a kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and island bench. Of the four bedrooms, one at the front serves as a study, one nestles into the rear garden, and the main has an en suite. Alma Street is dominated by similar single-storey houses and a sprinkling of new double-storey houses. Within a kilometre are parks, Gardiners Creek, Malvern Valley Golf Course and Waverley Oval. Balancing that, shopaholics can walk to Chadstone Shopping Centre in 10 minutes. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

This new house is in an up-and-coming pocket of Ashburton. You can walk to the train, the High Street shopping strip, and Toorak Road at the other end of Welfare Parade. The stylish exterior and the beautifully finished interior will not disappoint. Parquetry floors gleam throughout the ground level. Off the entrance is a formal living room with the plantation shutters that feature throughout. Opposite here is the main bedroom, with a fitted walk-in wardrobe and a luxurious cream-coloured travertine en suite. The gallery-like, open-plan entertainment hub begins with the kitchen, where drop lights illuminate the granite island bench. Glass splashbacks reflect light, while Miele appliances complete the chic design. The lounge and meals areas open to an outdoor dining room and the low-maintenance garden. Stairs lead directly into a huge kids’ lounge-cum-study. Three double bedrooms have wardrobes and a peaceful feel. The sumptuous travertine bathroom has a freestanding bath. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

The big feature of this handsome house is certainly size – a family and dining room across its rear, more than 10 metres wide, looks out through huge picture windows to a secluded, manicured garden of lawn, hedges, paving and a solar-heated pool. The generous casual area, and laundry with storage, is in a single-storey addition that matches the clinker brick-and-terracotta-tiled roof of this 1950s double-fronted, double-storey property. Downstairs at the front are a fitted study and lounge room with Baltic pine floors and a fireplace. A granite kitchen and central bathroom complete the uncomplicated, balanced downstairs floor plan. Upstairs are three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus space for a study area. The bedrooms have the same white plantation shutters as the study and lounge. The house is set back from the street behind a high brick fence and security gates. The city-bound bus stops out the front and Bellevue shops are close. The property is in Balwyn High School zone and near Yarra River parklands. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

Hawthorn \ 80 Kooyongkoot Road

we love it Architect Tom Novak was commissioned to build this single-level residence about 15 years ago. The current owners have put their souls into further enhancing Novak’s masterpiece. It is not often a house like this comes along; it’s much like a living piece of art. The exterior features interlocking, diamond-shaped

tiles for an effect reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. Rick Eckersley, along with one of the owners, designed the sumptuous tiered gardens that surround the house. There are cool polished-concrete floors and crisp white walls throughout the residence, forming a spectacular environment where walls and ceilings curve into waves, save for the window and door frames.

The light-filled entrance hall leads into the open-plan entertainment hub. The angled kitchen has stainless-steel benchtops and a superb butler’s kitchen, and the lounge room has a curved ceiling. Angled-glass doors reveal a decked oasis with an owner-designed steel pergola and Mexican-themed barbecue area. Nearby is the futuristic, capsule-like, indoor pool and spa

with blue night-lighting. A full bathroom and laundry service this area. The main bedroom has built-in wardrobes, a circular walk-in wardrobe and a pod-shaped en suite with a bath. The second bedroom is as impressive, while the third overlooks the HA Smith Reserve next door and has built-in desks, a bookcase and an en suite. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

A block of this size is something of a rarity in Prahran. This Californian bungalow built c1927 sits on approximately 354 square metres of land, affording the buyer endless opportunities to extend, renovate or add their touch to the garden. The house itself has all the heritage-style cues of the interwar era, such as its sloping roof, stucco façade and shingles. Step inside and the theme continues with picture rails, high ceilings, the original hardwood floors and walls of timber panelling. The main bedroom at the front has a wall of cupboards and a bathroom next door. A new fireplace has replaced the old in the sitting room, which has built-in shelving, a desk and storage space. The property is blessed with a west-facing backyard. No wonder the deck is so big. Of the three bedrooms upstairs, two have built-in desks while the middle one has a full wall of beautiful timber shelves, drawers and cupboards decorated with leadlight panels. \ LEXI COTTEE

CANTERBURY \ 106 Mont Albert Road It takes something special to stand out on Canterbury’s golden mile, but grand interwar architecture and resort-style grounds ensure that this house holds its own among some far newer neighbours. Silchester (c1920) is large but simple in form, with exterior ornamentation confined to the front porch and horizontal embellishments on windows and terraces. Interiors are lavish but warm, with original art deco ceilings complementing luxurious wall coverings, a different print for each room. Formal entertainment spaces – a lounge, dining room and library – are off the wide entrance hall, as is a wing dedicated to the main bedroom, marble en suite, walk-in wardrobe and parents’ retreat. The kitchen and casual living areas form an L shape around the north-facing tennis court; french doors in the sunroom offer direct access to a terrace shaded by a thick grapevine. The 2161-square-metre block also allows space for a croquet lawn on the other side of the house, an outdoor kitchen and a huge front garden. Four large bedrooms and a terrace are arranged off the second-storey landing. But the self-contained apartment above the rear extension houses the bedroom all the kids will be fighting over. \ JO DAVY
