The editor’s desk
his week as I sit bleary eyed thanks to OSDS (Olympics Sleep Deprivation Syndrome) I’ve been reflecting on why we find watching competitive sport so compelling. Of course, there’s the thrill of seeing who’ll win and marvelling at the finest physical specimens of humankind. But more than that, I reckon elite sport holds up a mirror to society, reflecting the best and worst of us. On the plus side, we’re reminded of just what can be achieved with single-minded effort and dedication. On the minus side, when the stakes are so high, the temptation to bend or break the rules can be irresistible. Hence the drug scandal surrounding the Russian Olympics team and, in our own backyard, the Essendon supplements saga. More than three years since news broke that Essendon players had been administered banned supplements, we still don’t really know what happened and, as Bomber Thompson reveals this week, the saga still haunts those involved. ●

AUGUST 10, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 7
PETER WILMOTH MEETS BOMBER THOMPSON I’m driving through South Melbourne with Mark (Bomber) Thompson & he’s reflecting on some of the amazing names he’s coached over 10 years at Geelong & one at Essendon. As he tells his stories, there’s an obvious love for the football environment that even the pain of the Essendon supplements saga hasn’t killed.
he stories reinforce what he’s told me earlier – that you walk out of a footy club and leave so much behind. “You miss the social side of football, you miss people,” he says. “You miss it. And you can’t go back. People don’t just walk into football clubs. You’ve got to be part of it. It’s gone. Your workplace has gone, your social life has gone … Everyone who leaves footy [also] leaves their core friendship group. “I knew it was going to come because I’ve seen it. I’ve seen nearly every player who’s left the game go through some time of …” He pauses. “I’m not completely lost. I’m actually training myself to not want it. The natural instinct is to go back to what you know. Just trying to find other things to do that you really value doing.” What a saga Bomber Thompson’s life has been for the past four years. From his role as assistant coach to James Hird at Essendon, Bomber took over as coach for a year (in 2014) when Hird was suspended. Bomber was fined $30,000 by the AFL for his role in the supplements saga and now finds himself in a strange limbo, hurt by the scandal, devastated for the banned players, and he says he has become “a bit insular”. And even though he’s written a book – which was cathartic – he still can’t find a passion to replace football. “There have been periods of time when I wouldn’t go out,” he says. “I didn’t want people thinking there’s …” He pauses. “The carnage from a people point of view has been massive. It’s not just the players; it’s staff, it’s [former club chairman] David Evans, it’s AFL people.” Bomber, 52, says he has had trouble sleeping. “I [would] wake up and jump on the internet to see what is in the news. It was every day.” Now he’s travelling around Australia talking to football clubs and groups of coaches, and he has dipped into property development. “The building side I thought was going to come into my life hasn’t given me that fulfilment yet. I’m still looking for that one thing. I’m not lost but I haven’t found anything either.” Say what you like about Bomber – different cat, quirky, a little bit out there – today he’s relaxed and generous with his thoughts, candid about the “perfect storm” he found himself in, and able – fortunately
Before the carnage: Mark Thompson and James Hird. May 2011. (THE AGE \ MAL FAIRCLOUGH)
– to let fly with some huge, loud laughs. After all, he was never one to take himself or the job too seriously. “I sort of just do what I want,” he says. “Because you’re an AFL coach, do you have to behave in a certain way? The bloke who coached me [Kevin Sheedy] was quirky too. I like the fact that he did what he wanted to do. We get too serious about who we have to be.” The man universally known as Bomber – only his mother calls him Mark – earned his nickname after Bomba, the Jungle Boy books for his agility in climbing trees while growing up in Airport West (his nickname later acquired the “er”). Now he has charted his journey from apprentice electrician to one of Kevin Sheedy’s “Baby Bombers”, to captaining Essendon for four years, playing in three premierships (1984, ’85 and ’93) and coaching Geelong for 10 seasons, breaking a 44-year drought with a flag in 2007 and steering them to another in 2009. And then, of course, there’s his role in the Essendon supplements saga, a scandal that prompted him to write the book. “I wanted to tell the truth. I think
the truth’s been lost. What’s taken over is winning and losing and saving face. “Four years on, we still haven’t got to the bottom of it. We can’t tell the players what we had, even though we’ve made every attempt to try and find out what happened. “It’s the perfect storm. I wish people would put their personal agendas away and just take the blame and responsibility. I can, I can do it, I don’t see why we can’t do it for the players’ sake.” Was he ever seen as the bad guy? “Yeah, to a point. My name’s there. I’ve been charged by the AFL for bringing the game into disrepute.” He wasn’t happy about the incongruity of only some of those involved in the saga being charged, and other inconsistencies. “I don’t see how people I worked with at Essendon, like Dean Robinson for example, was never charged. I don’t see how if I’d left I probably wouldn’t have been charged but if I stayed I was charged. They charged me, but they let me work with the team again. That’s totally contrasting, isn’t it? You’re partly responsible but we’ll let you back near the players.” Taking over the coaching role from James Hird in 2014 – when the team was banned from taking part in the finals – was still a good year, he says. “When I took the job on, the whole focus was on helping the players, which meant I had to stop thinking about all the other stuff and not talk about it. We hardly spoke about it the whole year.” He became a different type of coach. “I opened up. I was private, I had my ways [but] I wanted to put some enjoyment into their footy and even for the fans, to open up our club. The fans had been so good and loyal. I opened up training. I made players talk to [the fans] every session. “It was enlightening. It was refreshing for me to be a little bit more honest and open and tell it the way it is.” Bomber’s memories of building that great premiership-winning Geelong team are precious. “We got them as children, in football speak, trained them up and nurtured them and created these animals who could play the best footy in a spirit and style that was with humility and class. They were just good citizens playing unbelievably good football. Very proud of them.”
He ran out of steam at Geelong after 10 years and two flags. “I’d gone out with a goal and a philosophy, and by god it worked,” he says. “We were the greatest team of all for a period of time. I couldn’t reset my goals and say, ‘I want to win four or five’. And I was tired.” He deals with the supplements scandal eloquently in the book. I ask what perception Essendon has been left with. “I think a poorly run club. A fractured club. And a club that is probably a little bit arrogant. People maybe think we did it on purpose and tried to get away with something. I think that’s what people think. I think a large percentage of them still think that we cheated,” Bomber says. “They must, because the players have been suspended for 12 months.” Does he think they cheated? “I don’t think we ever did anything illegal. I don’t think (sports scientist) Stephen Dank is stupid enough. I don’t think it was ever anyone’s intention. I don’t think they’ve got any proof to say that it was ordered, made, delivered, paid for, given. “It’s bizarre that we still don’t know what the players were injected with. I find it absolutely bizarre that we haven’t tried hard enough. People could have actually spoken to each other. Someone should have been a facilitator. Somehow should have got us together and tried to find the facts out rather than just see who was legally wrong and responsible. That’s what the players wanted. That’s all they want still.”
e writes that nobody has been treated worse in footy than the 34 players banned from playing over their involvement. I ask what those players have told him about the nightmare they’ve endured. “It wakes them up at night. It’s taken away their confidence. It’s kept them out of public life because of embarrassment. I don’t think they’re worried what went in their body, but they’re worried that they’ve been linked to this whole sporting disaster.” Has it damaged the players as young men? “It’s had varying effects on [different] individuals. If [former captain] Jobe [Watson] doesn’t come back and play, he’s going to finish his time in football with four disastrous years. It’s almost half of his career. And he hasn’t had the chance to be as good as he’s capable of being and play in that champion team. We’ve taken that away from him,” Bomber says. “I wouldn’t think any less of them if they went after damages. If you think about what you do for a living and you can’t be what you’re capable of being, it’s restrictive.” Should Jobe keep his Brownlow? “Well I think if he’s guilty he probably shouldn’t.

I would still want more proof before they did it. You can’t be guilty and win an award in that year that you are guilty. I don’t think you can, and I don’t think Jobe would want it anyway.” I ask Bomber how the saga has affected him. “It’s varied; 2013 was a really tough year. To try and work in a football club and coach a team … it was hard. It was confronting, it was unsupportive. It was survival.” How has James Hird coped? “He’s gone from football hero to someone people take a different view of. I think he’s really shied away from being in public because his self-worth is probably at an all-time low. He’s probably been treated as badly as the players and he’s been targeted. “I just worry because he’s so used to being vibrant, being up and about, being respected, being loved, and you get used to those feelings in your life. And I don’t think there are too many people who have bothered to ring him or help him.” How are things between the two of them now? “We’re OK. I’ve been trying to ring him, haven’t been able to get him, he’s not taking too many phone calls. He’s probably in a big bunker. Can’t come out.” Are they still mates? “I hope so.” Bomber has regrets, and the way he dealt with Gary Ablett jnr’s year of staying or leaving Geelong is one of them. Bomber confronted Gary, who told him it was none of his business. “And it wasn’t. He was right to say that. I don’t think coaches really should get involved in negotiating contracts. It was such a distraction for us.” How are they now? “It’s OK. It’s never been great; he’s a very private person. I see him occasionally and we talk. I think if I had my time over again I’d probably change the way I did things. I should have stayed right out of it.” Bomber writes about his three children, now in their 20s, that “I missed part of your lives but you have turned out to be wonderful people”. “I think a lot of men have a lot of regrets about that,” he says. “We are busy people. I tried when I was living at home but then when I separated … it was just harder. You don’t see the little things every day that you would see, even if you are in a busy job.” Would he coach again? “I said no but I can’t say what’s going to happen in the future.” I drop Bomber off near his bayside home. As he walks across the busy road, it strikes me that after everything he – and so many at Essendon – have been through, it’s a relief to hear the man laugh. ● email@example.com
AUGUST 10, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9
Peter Wilmoth meets Olympic taekwondo contender Carmen Marton
armen Marton will have plenty of close supporters around her at the Rio Olympics. The taekwondo athlete is in Rio to compete alongside her fiance, Safwan Khalil, who is accompanied by his brother and coach Ali, and her sister Caroline Marton. Carmen’s younger brother Jack is also with the team as a reserve and training partner. “It’s a big family affair,” says Carmen. At 30, Carmen is a taekwondo veteran. At 14 she won selection for the Australian national team and competed at the Taekwondo World Cup in Vietnam. At 16 she won silver at the World Cup in Tokyo. In 2013 she became Australia’s first taekwondo world champion and she is now competing at her third Olympics. Not bad for a girl whose parents escaped communist Poland and arrived in Australia as refugees in the early 1980s, settling in Ferntree Gully. It was Carmen’s father Andrew who inspired her – and her brother and sister – to take on the sport. “I would say he forced us into it,” she says with a
laugh. “We didn’t really have a choice. Since I was three I can remember being around the sport, watching my father compete, watching my sister train.” Carmen didn’t take to taekwondo immediately. At eight she started mixed juniors and seniors taekwondo classes in a local school hall – and says it “drove me crazy”. “We had to concentrate,” she says. “My father was running the classes so I had to be even more careful and respectful; we’d get a few death stares if we stepped out of line because he had a higher expectation of us to be providing the proper example. “I used to try and do anything to get out of those classes. I used to pretend I was sick and have a nap right before the class, try to organise piano lessons at the same time as the class. It was like school. You watch your older

siblings go to school and you really want to go to school, and you go one time and you don’t want to go again. “Dad would also train us at home, so in between our group classes dad would drill us on technique over and over again. We are completely grateful for it now but at the time, as an eight-year-old, you couldn’t think of anything worse.” These days she concedes it has been invaluable having her father to advise her. “He’ll still give me feedback in my training sessions. I guess when it’s coming from your father it’s so much more emotional. It’s definitely a benefit to have that extra perspective, to have someone in your family who knows you so well. I’m very grateful that my parents did encourage me to do sport and be active.”
“My father believed all his children could be world champions”
Despite her youthful reluctance, taekwondo has given her some amazing experiences. “The fact that I’m able to travel the world is an incredible blessing,” she says. “I’m very appreciative of my father for pushing us and encouraging us to do a sport and to work hard. Those attributes transfer to other areas of your life. You learn to persevere through the hard times, you learn to get up early, work really hard and not get the rewards straight away; it might be months or even years later.” Carmen dealt well with early success. “Growing up as a female in the sport, they never made us feel different,” she says. “My father always believed all his children could be world champions. There was a really strong sense of belief that if you put in that hard work you could achieve greatness. Growing up I didn’t feel I couldn’t achieve. I always thought it was possible.” What was difficult was funding. “Throughout my whole career we’ve had to do fund-raising,” she says. “My parents
have put in their life savings to send their children around the world to compete. The club has done many fund-raising events, selling chocolates, raffle tickets, kick-a-thons, running tournaments, going to the council asking for donations.” Carmen and Safwan have travelled the world for 10 years, usually competing at the same tournaments. Lately Carmen has been living and training in Melbourne while her fiance lives in Sydney. “That’s been quite a challenge living in separate states,” she says. She says the threat of the Zika virus in Rio was a worry. “We’re quite a mature team, we’re reaching our 30s, my sister’s 32. We’re looking at starting families after this so it is a concern. Quite worrying to think about but we’re going to do everything possible to protect ourselves.” ● firstname.lastname@example.org » Carmen will compete in the Olympic

Ask the wine guy I drink my fair share of Q chardonnay and pinot from Tasmania, but what other varieties does the island produce?
When the first vineyards in Tasmania were planted, cabernet sauvignon and its Bordeaux buddies (cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot) and riesling were the vines winemakers chose to plant. It was a similar story in the Yarra Valley in the 1960s. The Bordeaux varietals grow well on the east coast, where weather systems blow down from the mainland, while a spine of alluvial soils through the island is perfect for riesling, shiraz and pinot gris. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \
THE VINE W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S
Stefano Lubiana Riesling 2014 (Tasmania) $30; 12.5%
Domaine A Petit A 2010 (Tasmania) $45; 14%
Grey Sands Pinot Gris 2013 (Tasmania) $45; 15.3%
The grapes for this come from a single, biodynamically farmed vineyard before they are fermented in Austrian oak. Floral, pretty aromas of bath salts, citrus, blossom and pretty flowers are delightfully perfumed. There’s a nice mid-palate weight to the citrus, quince and stonefruit flavours that works well with the wine’s racy acid and chalky grip. ●
A 60/35/4/1 blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. The current release is six years old and it’s just a pup. It smells and tastes of blackcurrant wine gums, mulberry, spice, pencil shavings (from oak maturation) and herbs. Structurally, this is loaded with tannins that have softened with time, and with vibrant acid keeping things fresh. ●
The team at Grey Sands tends to hold on to the wines a little before release. This is bursting with tropical fruit salad and citrus aromas. It’s bold and textural in the mouth. This is at the ripe end of the pinot gris spectrum – the high alcohol is a giveaway. In the mouth there’s more tropical fruit characters, plus spice and a perfume character that adds to the wine’s length. ●

Jansz Rose NV (Tasmania) $27; 12% This has the lightest of pink blushes – such a lovely colour. Then in the mouth, it exceeds expectations.

f you follow the yellow brick road of Swan Street to this Emerald City, you won’t have to look too far to see the wizard … she’s on the pass. Even on a Monday night, when most head chefs treat themselves to a lie down and a chardy, Nicky Riemer’s strawberry blonde afro bounces above the mahogany partition between kitchen and dining room. Mondays are particularly rewarding, offering special “locals’ night” banquets that change monthly, giving Nicky an opportunity to teach the young chefs in her kitchen new techniques and skills. A braised bell pepper with burrata steals my heart with its simplicity – a dish she laboured over as an apprentice at Stephanie’s in the 1990s. Vegetables are especially heroic here. If there was a “side dish of the year” award, her shaved savoy cabbage salad (the best nine bucks you’ll ever spend) would snaffle it – though the roasted Angelica Farm carrots could give it a run for its money. The food is “European provincial”, according to co-owner Adam Cash; relaxed, seasonal and impeccably balanced, according to me. These are the kind of dishes you could happily eat every day, and wish you could click your heels together to re-create at home. ● firstname.lastname@example.org

SHINE – 20TH ANNIVERSARY Q&A SCREENING FILM Before Shine, Geoffrey Rush’s screen career had largely consisted of small parts. After bagging an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for his star turn as pianist David Helfgott, the Melbourne actor became Hollywood hot property. This month marks 20 years since the film’s premiere and the Astor is celebrating with a cinema screening.

olin Lane is stepping out of his comfort zone. Best known as a comedian (he was the tall one in long-running double act Lano and Woodley), Colin is adjusting to life as a dramatic actor in Hannie Rayson’s new play Extinction. The hardest part about theatre, he says, is the different relationship with the audience. “It does scare me just a little bit, the fourth wall concept,” he says. “The shtick that Frank and I had didn’t have a fourth wall so when you made a mistake, you said to the audience, ‘I made a mistake!’. “So much of comedy is about what the audience is doing.

Colin says he was drawn to the production by the quality of the people involved. A script from Hannie Rayson certainly helped, as did the fact that legendary filmmaker Nadia Tass
was in the director’s chair. Extinction sees Colin’s character Harry Jewell, a mining CEO, become involved in the environmental sector at a low point in his life. “His wife’s told him he’s an idiot, his daughter has said he’s destroying her life and he’s run over a tiger quoll. He wants to prove to himself and the people around him that he’s not a total failure.” When he takes the aforementioned quoll to a rescue shelter, he finds himself offering to donate millions to save the quolls from extinction. He’s surprised when environmentalists aren’t keen on taking money from one of the world’s biggest polluters. “It’s a thought-provoking show,” Colin says, when I push him for a sales pitch. “Look, the TV is always going to be there, OK? Nobody gets to their death bed and says, ‘Gee, I wish I’d watched more TV’. So get out of your house, go to the Arts Centre, have a chardonnay, or a chai latte, I don’t care – come and see some theatre and you’ll have a very entertaining night.” ● email@example.com » Extinction, Arts Centre Melbourne, August 9-13, $40-$55 artscentremelbourne.com.au

This mind-bending thriller from Sydney writer Nathan Besser, soon to be a Hollywood film, toys with ideas of identity, trust and memory. Our (sort of) hero David collapses from a brain disease, shortly after discovering his wife was briefly a sex worker. While recuperating, he falls in with conman Ben, who entangles him in a complex and perilous scheme of identity theft. ● WIN \ A copy of Man in the Corner thanks to Andrew’s Books Ivanhoe

Man in the Corner By Nathan Besser (Vintage) randomhouse.com.au
This British indie band make a break for the mainstream, leaving behind complex rock for urgent and rather sexy dance pop. From the first verse of slinky opener Big Cat, it’s clear the group are in a sleazy, playful mood. And there’s no getting around the title of their recent single Get My Bang Bang.. But Boy King manages to enjoy the trappings of shameless, sex-crazed and Prince-flavoured pop with an ironic grin. ● ONLINE \ Watch Big Cat
The Get Down \ Netflix, August 12 netflix.com.au
Baz Luhrmann’s excursion to telly has proved to be Netflix’s most expensive production yet. Hardly surprising, given the director’s tendency towards excess. Here, he revels in the colour and extravagance of New York circa 1977, as hedonistic disco gives way to hip hop. Music has always been important to Baz, but it’s never been as vital as it is to these kids from the Bronx – in need of liberation, or a weapon. ● THE GET DOWN\ JAYDEN SMITH

Iron Man director Jon Favreau transforms the classic Disney cartoon into an action thriller with this live-action remake. The cast is incredible – Bill Murray was born to be loveable rogue Baloo – and the CGI is impressive, but there’s a disorientating compromise between old and new. For all its grit, the film is most successful when it surrenders to the original and breaks into song. ● MB THE JUNGLE BOOK \ BALOO & MOWGLI

sculpture in the bathtub, a horse on the couch and a disco in the loo are just some of the ways artworks have been exhibited at what is emerging as Melbourne’s most exciting art fair. The Hotel Windsor is, once again, about to be transformed by SPRING 1883, a high-end contemporary art show to be held as part of Melbourne’s Art Week. The invitation-only art fair returns to the Windsor after its 2014 debut, when a selected group of independent galleries took over the hotel’s suites, presenting art works in baths, drawers, beds and bedside tables. Last year the fair was held in Sydney’s Establishment Hotel. The brainchild of three Melbourne galleries (and four curators, Kate Barber, Vasili Kaliman, Vikki McInnes and Geoff Newton), who created the kind of fair they wanted to participate in, the first SPRING 1883 was applauded as one of the freshest satellite offerings at the 2014 Melbourne Art Week. Director Luisa Bosci says that, now the Melbourne Art Fair has been cancelled, SPRING 1883 is the main event of Melbourne Art Week, showcasing works from early, mid-career and senior contemporary artists. The artworks on show will carry price tags ranging from $500 to $10,000, and will include painting, tapestry, textiles, furniture, video, sculpture and neon, with new work from Australia artists including Juan Davila, Ricky Swallow, Polly Borland, Simon Denny and Dale Frank. This year more than a quarter of the 27 invited exhibitors are international galleries. SPRING 1883 poses an interesting alternative to the traditional white booth art fair model. A big drawcard is the opportunity
SUITE INSPIRATION THERE’S SOMETHING FUNNY GOING ON AT THE HOTEL WINDSOR, WRITES CLARE KENNEDY to view artworks within the faded glory of the Windsor’s apartments, such as the luxurious six-bedroom Prince Albert suite, before renovations to the hotel start later this year. “Our gallery is domestically scaled, so we have an affinity with presenting works in these kinds of spaces,” says co-curator Kate Barber. “Visitors can immediately get a sense of how a work might look in their own home. Not many of us live in a modernist white box, so it’s a more natural way to encounter work.” The gallerists have free rein in the way they set up. “The bathrooms become quite a playful space for the display of artwork,” says Luisa Bosci. In 2014 Melbourne gallery Sarah Scout Presents showed a Claire Lambe sculpture in their bathroom, while Chatterjee & Lal, from Mumbai, had a disco in their loo. Melbourne’s Neon Parc covered the floor with a veil of fog and Auckland-based gallery Gloria Knight reconstructed the interior of a tram. “People would come in and naturally hang off the straps and start talking, so it was wonderful,” Luisa says. Visitors’ engagement with hotel guests has also raised a few stories, as art lovers followed hotel guests into their rooms thinking it was part of the show. “That’s happened a few times, despite our efforts to make sure the fair

“The bathrooms become quite a playful space for the display of artwork” – Luisa Bosci is clearly signed,” says Kate Barber. “If a door is open, some visitors assume that must be a part of the fair, and we are like, ‘No, that’s someone getting changed!’.” This year Mark Feary, artistic director of Gertrude Contemporary, will curate a
performance suite. “The artists he chooses to perform will play on the theme of what happens in hotel rooms, which is something we’re interested in,” says Kate. Key to the fair’s success is the gallerists’ collegiality. “At a normal art fair you are in your booth, talking the whole time, and there’s very little opportunity to socialise,” says Vikki McInnes. “Whereas here a lot of the gallerists stay at the hotel. It reduces costs for them because they stay in their own suite. You might see (New Zealand gallerist) Hamish McKay wandering down the corridor in his dressing gown, and we all see each other at breakfast. It’s kind of like art camp.” Galleries in this year’s SPRING 1883 program include Kansas (New York), Grey Noise (Dubai), Southard Reid (London), Hamish McKay (Wellington), GAGPROJECTS (Adelaide), Darren Knight Gallery (Sydney) and Jan Murphy Gallery (Brisbane). There is a strong representation from Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and Wellington contemporary art spaces. ● firstname.lastname@example.org » SPRING 1883, August 17-24, Hotel Windsor » spring1883.com

Damian Pike is a familiar face for Prahran Market shoppers. He’s celebrating 30 years of running his stall Damian Pike Wild Mushroom Specialist at the market, and says the best thing about it has been the people. “I’ve met interesting and famous people from all walks of life,” Damian says. As Melbourne’s only specialist mushroom dealer, he supplies restaurants with mushrooms from around the world and has won an Order of Australia for services to the fruit and vegetable industry. Damian loves Prahran because it’s the “gateway to the city with restaurants, bars, clothing and, best of all, great food”. Where do you go for some great produce? Obviously the Prahran Market for the huge selection of fruit and veg and specialty items, but I particularly visit MJ Mow the potato man for his knowledge of the product.
“All right, stop. Cocktail time”
For a great cup of coffee? Market Lane Coffee at Prahran Market. To me, it’s the best coffee shop in Prahran. To relax after work? For me, relaxing after work is all about spending time with my family. For a fantastic lunch? For a fantastic lunch, you’ll always find me at Rumbles Patisserie at Prahran Market. They have a great selection of everything from sandwiches to hot meals and sweets. For some “me time”? I really like walking along Southbank – it might be because it’s in the heart of the city. For a great bottle of wine? I’ll head to Armadale Cellars. I think Phil and Karen have the best selection in Victoria. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

The pay-off We made $250 in the end; not too bad for a morning’s work. It was great to chat to the locals and be part of the hustle and bustle.
The promise The Camberwell Sunday Market has been a weekly ritual for many Melburnians for 40 years and its organiser, Balwyn Rotary, is celebrating the milestone with special festivities on August 28. Shoppers can find a bargain and, if you have excess clothing, records, books or bric-a-brac, you can book a stall and sell your wares.
Who should try it? Anyone who can brave the early start and has things they want to sell. The bill It’s $60 for a stall and trestle tables, while clothes racks can be hired for $9-$15.
WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?
For sure, once I have more stuff that I no longer want. ●
The reality I do a bit of prep a few days before the market, sorting through my clothing and attaching price tags. I also have some screen-printed cushions I made one crafternoon, so I sew and get them ready. I get the husband to sort through our books and records. We arrive at six o’clock on a Sunday morning and it’s freezing. It’s still dark, but punters are already out in force with torches to see what’s being sold. Once the sun comes up, we’re ready to go as the crowd grows. We make our first sale – four books for $4 – and we’re feeling pretty proud of ourselves. Our next customer buys some of my clothing, which is in really good nick. I show her a couple of outfit ideas and she buys three things for $40.
The pain factor I could do without the early start and the cold. Only one of my hilarious “calmez votre pantalon” (“calm your pants” in French) cushion covers sold, but not everyone has my sense of humour!

Extremely Rare Blue and Pink Natural Argyle Diamonds Pink diamonds are extremely rare. Rarer still are blue diamonds, which make up less than 0.0001 percent of the world’s diamonds. At Michael Wilson Diamond Jewellers we have always been proud to have access to an exquisite selection of diamonds. Stones that very few would ever have the opportunity of viewing. When the occasion arose to purchase this unique set of natural blue diamonds we could not pass it up.

GETTING THERE The flight from Melbourne to Bali takes about six hours and 15 minutes
t was in Bali while sitting by the pool with a vodka tonic and a lime (50 cents for a good-sized bag of limes) that I read Melbourne was so cold that day you might as well be sitting in your fridge. It was a great line and a sobering reminder of why we had come to Bali for a two-week escape. The challenge of Bali these days is trying to do everything you want to do in limited time, so you need to organise carefully, especially booking into the hot restaurants. Or, on the other hand, just arrive and do nothing. Both plans work. ● PETER WILMOTH email@example.com

As anyone who’s visited Bali recently knows, the island has become a food mecca. Our “discovery” on this trip was this superb place in Canggu, about 30 minutes’ drive from Seminyak, which puts a modern spin on Japanese food. Just a couple of hundred metres from Finn’s Beach Club, One Eyed Jack is a cool, stylish diner with an enticing menu including crisp soft-shell crab sliders, pork belly, tuna/salmon tacos, miso black cod and quail egg. We also did what any self-respecting Australian traveller is doing and visited Frank Camorra’s newest Movida in Seminyak (great), Sarong (satisfying as ever), Saigon Street Bali (endlessly good food in a vibey atmosphere), and Mamasan (never fails to turn on a great night). ●
Canggu, a half-hour drive from Seminyak, is Bali’s new hot spot and there are some fun things to do apart from surfing the several breaks along this stretch – much easier surf for beginners to intermediate than the breaks on the Bukit, such as Bingin and Balangan, which are awesome for more experienced surfers. I rented one of the many quality Malibu boards on offer for $10. It’s crowded but fun. Uluwatu, where the world’s best surfers tackle awesome breaks, is an easy day trip from Seminyak. Watch in awe from the warungs that spill down the cliffside. Grab a beanbag on the sand and have a drink or dinner at Finn’s Beach Club, Canggu, while you watch the surfers. It’s cool and laid-back and a DJ pumps out some chilled tunes as you enjoy pre-dinner

The Alila Seminyak is a luxurious five-star newcomer on the Petitenget scene. It’s a brilliant location on the beach between the Seminyak strip around the W Hotel and the action-packed area in the other direction around Motel Mexicola and now legendary Sisterfields cafe. Y You’re walking to all of that. The Alila is also a short walk to restaurants La Lucciola – with that view, still one of the best places for breakfast on the island – and elegant Petitenget. And it’s a short trot along the beach down to beach club Potato Head. The Alila is top-end accommodation with stylish rooms, many with sea views. Rooms are superbly and subtly appointed and staff go out of their way to help. The hotel has three pools or there’s the beach. The Restaurant at Alila offers great dining and The Beach Bar is a perfect place to sit with lunch or a drink and watch the waves. ●
drinks and nibbles. There’s also night surfing under floodlights. Have a beer at Old Man’s (Jl Batu Bolong Beach) at Canggu. Full of surfers and backpackers learning to surf, it has a relaxed vibe with unpretentious food and cool tunes at night. Motel Mexicola, in Seminyak, is more a party than a restaurant. The food is just OK but the vibe – it’s a garishly decorated, supercharged outdoor Mexican cantina not afraid to play Tijuana Brass – is fun. It’s at Jl Kayu Jati No. 9. Consider a day at the Waterbom park in Kuta. It has mellow, moderate and extreme rides and slides – the kids loved it. Bad weather? Try Amo Spa (Jl Petitenget No. 100X, Seminyak) for the best mani-pedi or facial in Bali. ●

SCHOOL FOR GENERATIONS old Fintonian Jackie Besley & her daughter Piper talk to melissa heagney about their history with the school
26 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 10, 2016
“all the relationships with the teachers are really personal”
t was 1981 when Jackie Besley made her way from her family home in Mont Albert to Fintona Girls’ School for her first day of year 7. Like thousands of girls before her, Jackie was nervous and excited about being in secondary school. “There were girls who came through the junior school who all knew each other – and a whole group of us who didn’t. That was a challenge. “But making new and wonderful friends again [in that first year] is the bit I remember the most,” she says. Jackie soon got into the swing of school life, finding her passion for subjects including her favourite – history. “My history teacher Mrs Evans was my favourite teacher and she was also one of the hardest on me as well. I came back and saw her a couple of years after I left. I was at university and I brought some of my history papers to show her,’’ Jackie says. “I also had her in year 7 for English and she was mortified at my grammar, punctuation and spelling. She went out of her way to really bring me up to speed. She was great.” Jackie says it was a similar story for other teachers at the school. “What really stood out was the closeness between the teachers and the students. “Because the school is so small, it’s really intimate. I knew that I could go and knock on the staff-room door and get help from anybody and they all knew me,’’ she says. “That was really reassuring.” After graduating, Jackie went on to Monash University, where she attained a bachelor of arts, and she also earnt a bachelor of psychology (honours) from James Cook University in Queensland, where she lived with her husband and two children for a few years before returning to Melbourne. One of those children, Piper, joined Fintona four years ago, in year 5. Like her mum, Piper says she likes the close relationships that students build with the teachers. “All the relationships with the teachers are really personal. If you’re walking down the street and you see a teacher, they say ‘hi’,” she says. Piper says she dreams of being a pilot once she finishes at Fintona. Jackie became involved in the school again by serving as a board member for the past 18 months. She says she was inspired by another Old Fintonian to take on the role. “It was on [Fintona’s] valedictory night and the outgoing chair, Amanda McMahon, was talking about being involved with the school and going onto the board,” she says. “She said, ‘If I could just encourage one person to follow in my footsteps, or to make a contribution in some way like I have, that would be my goal’. It really, really resonated with me. I sent her an email asking to have a chat and it went from there.” Jackie works for an executive search company specialising in the education sector. She says she still has a passion for history and enjoyed the book being published about Fintona’s 120 years. She is looking forward to her 30-year reunion and to seeing Fintona continue as a good school. “I hope it continues to flourish and help develop really strong, resilient women who can do anything,” she says. ● firstname.lastname@example.org

Mostly it’s the feeling of body strength and integrity that’s so reassuring. This is a relaxing car in the country and, even if the ride gets a little firm across second-class surfaces and B roads, the distance tends to fall away. In town the X4 is the right size, nicely compact but with surprisingly good interior space that’s usable and practical. At one stage we had three across the back seat and it remained manageable and easy to get to the belts. The cargo room is excellent and it’s easy to park. The interior is beautifully finished and the surfaces are warm and tactile. The audio is pretty good. The electronics remain a mystery; pay attention when they are explained. ●

anything could be narrower than the Range Rover Evoque’s rear view but this X4 takes the cake. Make sure to set your side mirrors up properly because the blind spots are more blind than most. BMW is challenging the Evoque with the X4, and the Evoque HSE is a very good thing indeed and $13,000 cheaper. So is the BMW better? Well the diesel motor is a beauty and the cabin and fittings are typically BMW – luxurious certainly, but ordered and businesslike. The electronic menus are also typically BMW; designed by engineers. If you don’t think like an engineer then you must learn to do so. The handling is brilliant, the cost being ride quality that gets quite sharp. If your heart’s set on a BMW this is a really good one, but look at the top Evoque before signing the papers. ●

LIVING SPACES TRINITY LANE
The selling point Spacious, purpose-built and architect-designed independent retirement apartments in a highly sought-after area close to shops, parks, services and hospitals.
rinity Lane is a newly released independent retirement living project just a three-minute walk from the Darebin Creek parklands, which is at the end of the leafy street. The two-storey development comprises 23 spacious one and two-bedroom apartments with communal facilities, set in immaculately landscaped surrounds close to Ivanhoe’s shops, services, parks and hospitals. The site was formerly St Bernadette’s parish tennis courts, but with diminished use the parish decided to give it a new purpose. Trinity Lane is the latest project to be developed by Villa Maria Catholic Homes, which has a long-standing reputation for developing high-quality retirement living. Recent projects include Athelstan in Camberwell, Barnsbury in Deepdene and St Joseph’s Mews in Hawthorn. Villa Maria Catholic Homes property development manager Simon Sloan says Trinity Lane has been designed for beauty, practicality and absolute comfort. “Trinity Lane offers the opportunity to join a new boutique community in Ivanhoe with its tree-lined streets and an abundance of pastimes on offer that are never more than a 10-minute bus ride from your front door. “Villa Maria Catholic Homes has a long and proud reputation for delivering high-quality, independent living retirement communities. At Trinity Lane, our aim is to maximise residents’ independence and opportunities for socialising.”
Stoll Long Architects’ design for Trinity Lane appears as a collection of contemporary brick-and-render townhouses set in gardens designed for privacy and outlooks by John Patrick Landscape Architects. The five one-bedroom and 18 two-bedroom apartments have spacious floorplans sized from 69 to 133 square metres and integrated outdoor living within private outdoor spaces that range from nine to 220 square metres. Prices start at $540,000 for a 69-square-metre, one-bedroom apartment with a nine-square-metre balcony and rise to $1.11 million for a 133-square-metre, two-bedroom apartment with a study,
fireplace and 216-square-metre terrace and courtyard. Under the retirement village structure, residents enter lease arrangements with exit fees based on years of residence at a percentage of the original lease cost. At Trinity Lane, deferred management fees and maintenance fund fees will be capped with rates available on application. All have one or two parking spaces and storage in the secure basement. Construction is expected to start in September with completion in February 2018. ● LIZ McLACHLAN email@example.com
Location, location Trinity Lane is a two-minute drive from Ivanhoe’s cafes, restaurants and shops. On foot it’s 12 minutes to the Darebin Creek trail and 15 minutes to Ivanhoe. The Ivanhoe Golf Course, Chelsworth Park and Main Yarra trail are nearby, as are the Heidelberg Repatriation, Austin and Warringal private hospitals and the North Eastern Rehabilitation Centre.

Trinity Lane’s spacious floorplans have light-filled living areas with lofty 2.8-metre to three-metre ceiling heights and generous glazing. Three of the one-bedroom apartments, up to 81 square metres indoors, have a study/flexi-room and a powder room. The five largest two-bedroom apartments (127-133 square metres) also have a study/ flexi-room and a Jetmaster fireplace in the living area. All but two have an island or peninsula bench in the kitchen and most have a walk-in or walk-through wardrobe off the main bedroom. All two-bedroom apartments have two bathrooms. ●
Grey limed-oak flooring runs through the open-plan living areas with plush carpet in bedrooms. Kitchens feature Essastone benchtops, glass splashbacks and 2pac joinery with a Miele stainless-steel gas cooktop, built-in range hood, oven, integrated fridge and freezer with ice maker, microwave oven with grill and a single or double Fisher & Paykel integrated dish drawer. In the bathrooms, the floors have slip-resistant tiles and there’s an Essastone floating vanity with 2pac joinery and walk-in shower. The concealed laundry includes a Miele washing machine and dryer. ●
Trinity Lane buyers will share a residents’ lounge with fireplace and bookshelves looking on to outdoor living areas and gardens, and a dining/function space opening to an outdoor dining area that is shaded by a pergola. Residents will be able to hold private or residents’ gatherings, dinner parties, functions and classes in the shared spaces and there’s a commercial-grade kitchen. John Patrick Landscape Architects has designed garden beds with mature trees and lawns around outdoor living areas. A fully equipped gym is also included. ●

hen Ben Shewry and his wife, Natalia, were ready to invest in their first home seven years ago, they headed to Ocean Grove. Since then, the owner and chef at internationally renowned restaurant Attica has commuted for more than three hours a day. But the long drive is worth it for Ben, who loves living in the small coastal community. “I love being close to nature, going surfing and raising our three children in a less busy environment,” he says. “I love hearing the sound of the ocean at night. We lived in Melbourne for six years before we bought our home but I feel more comfortable in a smaller place. If I’m painting the fence people stop and chat and everyone says hello when they pass you in the street. That makes a place feel like home.” The kitchen is the hub of the fourbedroom house. The sleep-out is a play room and there’s a lounge filled with natural light. The outdoor dining area has a touch of home for New Zealand-born Ben – a silver fern motif is painted on the fence. “I’ve done the work myself. I’m the son of a builder,” he says. “I prefer to have things in my home that will last a lifetime. I’d love to collect mid-century Danish furniture next. The design is simple, beautiful and practical and 70 years later it still looks amazing. I’d love to create food that would be relevant in 70 years’ time.” ● SARAH MARINOS firstname.lastname@example.org
My dad, Rob Shewry, is an artist. He painted this in 2010 and gave it to me. It’s two pukeko birds in a swamp below his property. With my friend, Ted Lombardo, who is a chocolatier, I created a dish for Attica as a tribute called the Pukeko’s Egg. I don’t go to a gallery and buy art. I have to be somewhere, meet someone, there’s a connection, and then I buy something.
I have a long, classic, single-fin longboard, a Brian Anderson model that I bought in California. I’ve surfed since I was a kid. It’s a form of escape. I can be grumpy or stressed, go for a surf and feel like a million dollars afterwards.
HAND-MADE KNIVES I’ve collected these over 10 years or so. One of them is one of only 21 in the world, made by a famous Japanese bladesmith called Takamura. It was given to me five years ago in Japan. Later I was in a famous high-end knife shop in New York and saw one in a cabinet. The owner said it wasn’t for sale and I told her I already had one. She said that wasn’t possible and I told her I really did have that knife. I like the practicality of knives. They are art you can use.
FUN HO! ANTIQUE TOY COLLECTION These toys were made in Inglewood, the town in New Zealand where I went to school. They were made from the late 1920s to the late 1970s and are hard to find now. I used to travel around the North Island looking for them in antique shops, going to swap meets and answering ads in newspapers. I like their simplicity.
I was a fan of basketball when I was younger. I played in teams at high school but hadn’t had anything to do with it for years because I was working an absolute tonne at Attica. Then my son, Kobe, started playing and made a team with his schoolmates – the Red Dragons. I coached them for four years. We built this basketball court five years ago. Kobe plays for the Melbourne Tigers’ first under-14 team and I’m amazed by his focus and determination. AUGUST 10, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 29

S H O W Y O U O F F \ A good “shelfie” is meaningful to the creator; it’s the perfect way to depict your personality. Consider the palette and shapes. For starters, try monochrome with a touch of wood or a pop of colour.

F E A T U R E S T O R I E S \ As an alternative to art, use small feature shelves to break up a wall.

GO WITH THE FLOW 14 LINLITHGOW OW RO ROAD, T TOORAK, 3142
ore than 20 years after it was built, this house, designed by architect Nic Bochsler at a triple-A Toorak address, remains utterly contemporary. It is still relevant, with abundant natural light and large open-plan rooms overlooking a magnificent garden and swimming pool. The fact that the garden is now very well established makes the property even more appealing. At every turn, from every window, there is something of interest. It might be the horizon-edged swimming pool and manicured lawn, the stand of silver birches, glimpses of the meditation pool, or views to walls wrapped in vines or to the hills to the north. It’s the sort of property where you might rarely need to venture beyond the gates of the 1576-square-metre estate. Entertain on a small or lavish scale, swim, enjoy a gym session followed by a dip in the plunge pool, study, work from home – it’s all possible at this private sanctuary. The house, set at the “elbow” of Linlithgow Road, is behind discreet black metal gates. The home is monumental and imposing. The entry through a pivot door into a void offers the anticipation of a big, bold house. And it does not disappoint. The vast sitting room includes signature Bochsler elements of an open fireplace, north- and west-facing terraces, six-metre-high ceilings, vertical windows and great expanses of walls for hanging art. Look out and there is the view of the pool and garden. Look in the other direction to the open-plan library and a wall of well-thumbed books. A door from the library opens to the study, where windows overlook the garden and entrance to the house. Sliding cavity doors open the sitting room to the kitchen with its black granite benches and timber cabinetry. A mix of Gaggenau and Miele appliances should make most cooks happy. As the director of a play makes sure the show flows properly, the architect has ensured an excellent flow of

rooms. The casual dining area is at one end of the kitchen. A few steps lead down to the living room with its metal-framed, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to the terrace and swimming pool. Directly behind the kitchen, through a discreet door, is the laundry that overlooks the meditation pool and has outdoor access. Back inside again, the dining room, wrapped by windows on three sides, also looks out to the meditation pool and water feature with a vine-clad wall as the background. Two bedrooms on this floor are well separated from the living and entertaining areas. Both have built-in timber desks and en suites and overlook a pebble garden with built-in trampoline. Still on this level, just past the second bedroom, is a glass-walled gym with a deck at one end and the plunge pool at the other. The sumptuous main bedroom suite on the first floor is reached by a long passage with a glass balustrade that allows a view down to the ground-floor living room. This suite is a series of three “rooms”. The first, north-facing room is the bedroom, with doors to a wraparound terrace that highlights the elevation of the house. Views from the terrace stretch past the rooftops of Toorak and the suburbs to the dome of the Xavier College chapel and hills on the horizon. The second “room” – a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room with fitted timber cabinets – leads to the en suite, where the super-sized, black-tiled shower overlooks a private terrace garden. The other end of this floor is given over to a study or fourth bedroom with its own bathroom. Lavish finishes, customised joinery, high-end appliances, a 1250-bottle cellar, cool room, store room, irrigation and 50,000-litre water tank should all help make life easy at this Toorak house. ● MARIA HARRIS email@example.com

There’s a calming elegance here. In a quiet, secluded position just a few minutes’ walk from Glen Iris shops, the block has only two villas and this one is tucked away at the back. Built about the turn of the century, it has a classically neutral interior with french windows, carpeted bedrooms, and elegant parquetry floors in the entrance, rear living space and kitchen. Inside, three rooms split from the entry. To the left is the study with a built-in wardrobe, while the living room is to the right. Straight ahead is the combined family and meals area and kitchen, divided from the living room by a sliding door. The kitchen is white, with painted timber cabinets and contrasting black stone benches. A glass door opens the living area to the courtyard. Nearby are the laundry, bathroom and separate toilet. The three bedrooms are at the end of a short hall. The main has an en suite and walk-in wardrobe, while the other two have built-in wardrobes. Also on the title is a double garage with remote-controlled entry. ● JULIAN HEALEY

The main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe and a contemporary en suite in fashionable neutral tones. At the rear is the kitchen and family hub.
This area is awash with natural light thanks to high ceilings and large glass sliding doors that overlook the deck and pool. The tropical garden is a showstopper and introduces greenery and life into the interiors. The kitchen is designed for entertaining and has stone benchtops, a butler’s pantry, and Miele and Gaggenau appliances. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

Built in the 1930s and extended in the 1960s, this now two-storey clinker-brick house has also benefited from more recent renovations. Together, these modifications present a neat assembly of heritage and contemporary spaces. With separate casual and formal living areas, the ground floor is heavily zoned – comprising bedrooms and places for the family to relax. The formal lounge and dining room are near the entry and have open fireplaces, cornices and ceiling roses. The bedroom opposite has a large bay window. Behind it, there’s a smaller bedroom and a sky-lit bathroom. The kitchen, with breakfast bar and stainless-steel benches and appliances, leads into an open-plan meals and living area. Bifold doors open to a covered terrace with a pool and a freestanding laundry and bathroom. Upstairs, three more bedrooms surround a study space and sleek central bathroom. The main bedroom has a retreat and all three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and get neighbourhood views. ● JULIAN HEALEY

MALVERN EAST 357-359 WATTLETREE ROAD ‘Airdoch’ Fabulous Land, Vast Future Options Once a showpiece of its time, ‘Airdoch’ is an expansive residence luxuriating on 1050sqm with a frontage of 23 metres (approx.) with a General Residential Zone Schedule 3 (GRZ3) in one of Malvern East’s most desirable settings on the edge of Central Park. Previously renovated to create state-of-the-art surroundings with a lagoon-style indoor swimming pool & spa, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom interior’s voluminous proportions complement a northern aspect. But it’s the fabulous scope for renovation or re-development with a luxury new home (STCA) that provides the real excitement so close to Central Park Village, the park itself, schools, shops & transport.

PRAHRAN/WINDSOR 118 PEEL STREET Pure Living Pleasure Tranquil, light-ﬁlled and privileged, this deceptively spacious two-storey three-bedroom period residence enjoys the rare seclusion of a garden oasis with picturesque and private entertaining areas. Beautifully renovated, this superb home pairs sophistication with a relaxing living environment that feels a world away from its vibrant inner-city location on the edge of Chapel Street. Separate living and dining rooms provide engaging, surprising and elegant spaces; while the bespoke kitchen opening to a western courtyard is superbly ﬁnished. With a sleek bathroom, powder room and laundry, this stunning home offers the ﬁnest level of sophistication in the heart of Windsor.
