K I admit it. I am officially over winter. Sure there are some lovely things about the colder months in Melbourne – hunkering down for the film festival, mugs of Mork hot chocolate, a new pair of chunky winter boots – but enough already! Bring on spring, I say. I can’t begin to describe my delight at the first early signs of the changing of the seasons. The lighter mornings, the odd burst of Sunday sunshine and now the building anticipation for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The town’s fashionable set has been all aflutter with the news that rising Hollywood star Isabel Lucas is coming home as the face of our annual spring frock fest. The former Home and Away actor is fast becoming an international style icon, gracing magazine spreads and sitting front row at the big international couture shows. So we were thrilled to invite her into the TWR studio for a cover shoot and a chat about her take on the local fashion scene. Check out the result inside. ●

Jane Rocca meets the face of Spring Fashion Week, Isabel Lucas

O

ne of Melbourne’s most recognisable exports, Isabel Lucas, will return at the end of the month as the face of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The Melbourne-born, LA-based actor, who started her career in 2003 playing Tasha Andrews on Home and Away Away, has gone on to turn heads in Hollywood blockbusters such as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Daybreakers and most recently Careful What You Wish For. These days she divides her time between the US and Melbourne, although she spent most of last year living in Europe, filming in Barcelona and Budapest. When she got the call last month from the City of Melbourne asking her to be the face of this year’s fashion week, she couldn’t resist. “It means I get to come back to Australia and visit my parents, who split their time between the Yarra Valley and Cairns,” says Isabel, who also recently bought a home in Byron Bay. The 31-year-old, who fell in love with acting after she was discovered on a Cairns beach at 18, has never walked a fashion runway or worked as a model. But her mesmerising looks and poise have seen her become an accidental style icon, who seems equally at ease gracing magazine fashion spreads as sitting in the front row at international couture shows for Chanel and Calvin Klein. She loves Etro the label but prefers discovering emerging designers. She can’t wait for the Emerging Runway show at MSFW. She is particularly keen on brands that are eco-friendly, conscious about their carbon footprint and serious about recycling. “Nothing makes my heart get more excited than when I learn about brands who are going that extra mile to be sustainable, are made locally and aware of their impact on the planet,” she says. At MSFW opening night, she’ll wear a design by Nevenka – the local label started by Rosemary Masic, who combines a dreamy

bohemian sensibility with atelier genius. It’s the perfect fit for Isabel, who favours bohomeets-gypsy-goddess silhouettes – think delicate lace, pastel hues and a hint of floral. “I always feel a little klutzy when I describe my style,” says Isabel. “For me it’s all about comfort and fashion needs to be practical. “I have a feminine edge and I like minimal designs too. I’ve always been drawn to more gypsy styles. I love to mix and match, whether it’s vintage with new. Fashion should be fun and not too much thought to go into your outfit. I try to dress according to my mood.” During MSFW she will also wear outfits by Thurley (which she also wore at the AFI Awards), Yeojin Bae and Manning Cartell. “Australian fashion is unique and I love that there’s an energy in our designs you don’t find elsewhere,” she says. “I love Melbourne brands. They are world-class.” But for all her fashion cred, she admits she prefers to shop at flea markets over high-end boutiques. “I love market shopping,” she says. “I love Camberwell Market, Bangalow Market in Byron and the Rose Bowl in LA. “But what I love about MSFW is you can shop the looks from the runway in various stores around our city and you don’t need to feel trapped in a shopping centre. You can be in the fresh air and in daylight and have fashion at your fingertips. It’s a great thing and it really makes Melbourne unique.” Despite her star power and her history of dating famous men (Angus Stone, Chris Hemsworth, Adrian Grenier, Shia LaBeouf), Isabel is no show pony; in fact she is disarmingly down to earth. She doesn’t fit LA’s self-obsessed celebrity mould and prefers to live away from Hollywood’s buzz. She has a place by the ocean, a stone’s throw from Venice Beach and Santa Monica. She’s a 5Rhythms addict and needs regular yoga classes. She is also an ambassador for Australia For Dolphins, working to raise awareness about the slaughter in Japan.

“Doing my bit to raise awareness seems like a natural extension of who I am,” she says. Her environmental awareness was sparked at age nine when her family moved to Kakadu for a couple of years. Her father, a pilot, had been transferred there for work, and her mother was learning Aboriginal dance and teaching autistic children. “I made friendships with Aboriginal children who taught me the importance of our Earth,” she says. “We are on the very surface of the Earth and need to be aware of that and safeguard the Earth. Its resources aren’t infinite.” ● jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au » Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, August 26 to September 2 » msfw.melbourne.vic.gov.au

PETER WILMOTH MEETS SOME OF OUR MOST INSPIRING PARALYMPIANS

T

he road to Rio has been a long one for every athlete – a journey of fierce determination, enormous sacrifice and immense physical talent. But it is our Paralympians who have overcome the most extraordinary odds to compete on the international stage and whose stories inspire the most awe. It’s little wonder, then, that the Paralympic Games have emerged

from the shadow of the able-bodied Olympics to become a hugely popular event in their own right, securing their first commercial broadcast partner, Channel Seven, this year, promising 14 hours a day of live coverage. Before the games begin on September 7, here are some of the inspiring stories behind Australia’s Paralympians.

n 2013, Emma Booth was heading home from a horse-riding event when a truck jackknifed and hit the car she was in. Her injuries included a fractured skull, punctured lung and shattered spine. She is a paraplegic. But while she was told she would never walk again, Emma was determined to ride again and is now heading to Rio for her Paralympic debut in dressage. “I got back into the horses as soon as I could,” she says. “I think everything happens for a reason and you’ve just got to take everything as it comes and make the best out of every situation.” There were times when she thought she might not get to where she is. “The thought probably went through my head when I was in hospital,” she says. “It was obviously really difficult coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to walk again. I think I always had in my mind that I definitely would ride again and it was a matter of how far I would be able to take that as a career. “I decided very early on I would get back in the saddle. It wasn’t until I had my first ride that I realised it had come back to me quite naturally. I’m lucky I have quite a low-level spinal cord injury so I still have a lot of control of my core and upper body, which helps.”

10 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 17, 2016

Emma, 25, who lives and trains at her parents’ property at Langwarrin South, fell in with horses at age seven, riding her aunt’s big thoroughbred in Canberra. “I was tiny. I fell in love instantly, before I even got in the saddle. I always had a love for all animals and horses and riding, I get such a buzz out of it.” She acquired her horse, 14-year-old Zidane, last December. It’s a special relationship. “With any horse you’ve got to have a particular connection and feel like you mesh,” she says. “From the first time I rode Zidane it felt like we’d been a team for years. He understood what I wanted him to do.” Emma uses a Velcro strap that crosses over her thighs and elastics that hold her feet in the stirrups. There is a bar at the front of the saddle that she can use for support. And she is permitted to ride with two whips. Zidane has learnt to act on Emma’s voice commands. “He’s a really clever horse, he’s picked up my way of riding really quickly, we’ve really clicked so he’s a bit of a superstar.” Emma is excited to be in such a huge international event as the Rio Paralympics. “It’s such a big journey. I take it each day as it comes, try not to get too overwhelmed and make sure I enjoy the experience.” ●

ristan Knowles loved all sports when he was growing up. “My dream as a kid was to play AFL football for Hawthorn,” he says. “At nine that dream was taken away when I was diagnosed with bone cancer and had my left leg amputated above the knee. “It was obviously pretty traumatic having to deal with that as a kid. Had to do chemotherapy … had to learn to walk on a prosthetic leg. I was put in remission and stayed in remission for two years.” But exactly two years later, doctors found a tumour in his lung. Tristan was 12. He underwent chemotherapy for a year. “That was a really devastating time for me because I learnt during the first (diagnosis) that the two places you don’t want to have cancer are your brain and your lung. I watched a lot of kids not make it and it seemed the kids had a tumour in their lung or their brain. “I was really scared. It was the first time I’d ever let the thought of death into my mind. I’ve always been someone who’s related things to numbers. I asked my doctor ‘What are my chances of surviving?’ My parents anticipated I’d ask this and they agreed a white lie would be the best thing so they told me 50-50. “My response at that point onwards was that I would survive. I found out later that my chances of survival were closer to 10 or 15 per cent.” At 15 Tristan found a pathway that changed his life. “I found wheelchair basketball and it sent my life in a direction I’ll be forever grateful for,” he says. Wheelchair basketball has played a “massive” role in his life. “I struggled big time after my amputation coming to terms with who I now was,” he says. “And when you find something you’re passionate about and you show potential at it, it gives you confidence. It gave me enough confidence to be myself. He recalls the moment when that confidence came. “I used to wear a cover over my leg. From a distance you couldn’t tell I had one leg. At 17, before school one morning, I ripped the cover off and went to school with it exposed. I realised I’d been trying to hide that

I had one leg. It was a really liberating feeling. I have wheelchair basketball to thank for that. “All my teammates have a different journey and challenges to overcome. I saw some of those as a lot greater than the challenges I’d been through.” Tristan, 33, lives in Spotswood and works as a financial planner with the CBA. He is engaged to be married. He was part of the men’s national team, which won gold in Beijing and at the World Championships in 2010 in Birmingham, England. The team goes into Rio with a number one world ranking. “We fell one short in London 2012, got beaten by Canadians for the gold medal,” he says. “The hurt is still very fresh and that’s what has motivated us over the past four years.” ●

llie Cole is pleased that Paralympic sport has been so strongly embraced in recent times. “It wasn’t like that at all when I was a kid,” she says. “When I went to competitions, the Paralympic events were always either at the very beginning or the very end. I’ll never forget one day I was having a medal presentation and they turned off the lights in the middle of it. Things like that just don’t happen any more.” Ellie was 14. “My dad was so angry.” Ellie, 24, had her right leg amputated when she was three after being diagnosed with a sarcoma cancer. She took up swimming eight weeks later t ’ n as part of her rehabilitation, o d s after having a prosthetic e a l p e leg surgically fitted. “I’ve o f m th “Pe still got it, it’s really small o i k w now,” she laughs. n i e ut th hlet “When I came out of b y t theatre, I still thought I t a i e n had two legs.

swimming to competitions at the urging of her coach. “I was racing adult Paralympians, 18-, 19-, 20-year-old adults. I was 11. I dived in for my very first race and my goggles fell off so I stood up and put them back on, which is a big no-no. I lost the race and cried the whole way home. I look back and realise I was a bit hard on myself. I didn’t realise the world of competitive swimming was going to be so tough. “I’d been handed everything up until that stage and that’s when I realised if I was going to do any good at anything I would have to put some effort into it. “Growing up with a disability, especially as a young girl, a lot of people I guess almost felt sorry for me so I got everything quite easy as a kid. That was probably my first real lesson that things don’t always go the way you planned and that it’s time to put some hard work in if you want to get results.” The notion of competing in the Paralympics was planted when Ellie was 12. “I remember watching the 2004 Paralympic Games on TV and thinking that there are people racing who are just like me and it would be amazing to do something like that. “At that age I really just wanted to be the best swimmer in my squad because I was swimming against kids who had two legs and two arms.” It’s a long journey from growing up in Mt Eliza to winning four gold medals at the London Paralympics and winning an OAM in 2014 for her service to Australian sport, and for Ellie it’s a bit surreal. “I’m still struggling to comprehend that I compete at the level that I do. I don’t think I’ll ever really come to terms with it.” She says swimming has empowered her. “Being part of the Paralympics has been really important for me. People with disabilities are considered a minority and when I was growing up a lot of people

just assumed I wouldn’t be able to complete day-to-day tasks like walking up a staircase. “Going to a Paralympic village and seeing a guy with no arms eating with his feet and people doing amazing things like that, finding their way around any limitation that they have, has been an important lesson to me, that it’s important to keep forging forward and being the best you can be, whatever the public may think of you. Now when I say I’m a Paralympian people don’t think of me as an athlete with a disability, they think of me as someone with a disability who’s done something amazing. It’s awesome.” Ellie meets young people with disabilities at events and realises she is inspiring. “There are kids there who have disabilities and they’ve come to watch you swim. When they tell you you’ve made a really big impact on their life, it’s pretty special. When I was young all my role models were Paralympians.” Now Ellie is trying to raise $129,000 to buy a computer-controlled waterproof prosthetic knee called an X3. “Everyone thinks I’m talking about a BMW,” she says. “It’s like walking on a real leg,” she says. “I’m hoping the knees become a bit more affordable.” Ellie, who lives in Parramatta in Sydney, has also played wheelchair basketball, spending time on the Australian under-25 wheelchair basketball squad. “I was looking at taking it up seriously but I realised I wasn’t finished with my swimming career. I’m looking at a wheelchair basketball career later.” ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Paralympic Games run from September 7-18. Catch the action on Channel Seven: seven.com.au

Ask the wine guy

THE VINE

I love rich, oaky, buttery Q chardonnays but I find them hard to come by – any suggestions?

W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S

Those wines are hard to find. The A days when chardonnay was heavily oaked appear to be long gone. Some

Sunshine Creek Chardonnay 2013 (Yarra Valley) $45; 14%

Maxwell Chardonnay 2014 (Adelaide Hills) $28; 13%

Aromas of peaches and grilled nuts, with a zesty citrus kick, really get the saliva going in the mouth in anticipation of the first sip. When it hits the mouth there’s broad peach and melon flavours, plus a line of grapefruit (juice and pith) flavoured acid adding refreshment. It’s aged in oak for a year, with fine, powdery tannins giving the wine a gentle grip to the finish. ●

Many Barossa and McLaren Vale producers source chardonnay from the cooler Adelaide Hills region. This is ripe and bold, all stonefruit, spice and figs. There’s a little buttery, toasty oak. It’s heady and rich in the mouth but, most importantly, it’s balanced. There’s zip to the rich spice, peach and melon flavours and a lengthy, peachy finish. ●

tips though – don’t drink chardonnay straight from the fridge. Let it warm up and the flavours will flesh out a little. Also have a look at the alcohol levels – the higher the alcohol, the riper the grapes and, in theory, the richer the wine. Look for wines from warmer regions, such as McLaren Vale, Barossa and Riverina where the grapes produce flavours at the riper end of the spectrum. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Bellbrae Estate Boobs Chardonnay 2015 (Geelong) $35; 12.5% Named after the surf break east of Winkipop and Bells Beach, there’s a load to like here, starting with the rich aromas of tropical fruits, melon and peach. Grapefruit kicks in on the palate to rein in the rich flavours and a light grip finishes off the compelling structure. There’s texture and a smoky, grilled nuts character on the finish. ● Enjoy with \ Chicken korma

OR TRY THIS Yalumba Roussanne 2015 (Eden Valley) $24; 12.5% Roussane is the chardonnay of France’s Rhone Valley and its rich flavours and medium body make it a lovely alternative to a bold chardonnay. This smells of green melon and peach, roast almonds and ginger. It’s creamy smooth and rich in the mouth, with similar set of flavours and a refreshing line of acid. ● Enjoy with \ Salmon fish cakes

COOKING \ I’ve been inspired by a friend to commit to a tray of confit duck in the fridge for instameals when there isn’t enough time to prep. The duck sits under a layer of its own fat and keeps for weeks! ●

ellow falafel fans, Melbourne is in the midst of a chickpea renaissance! Between Ottolenghi making tabbouleh the talk of the town (again?), dietaries driving restaurateurs to find inclusive options for sensitive systems, plus the great avocado shortage of 2016, falafel is fast becoming the new go-to brunch dish for those in the know. That’s not to say the falafel balls are all you should be grabbing at Tahina. Their finely milled, golden fried, mildly spicy, nutty nuggets are only the beginning, my friends. I never thought I’d be sending you to Northcote for shakshuka but, with its generous size, burnished eggs and rich tomato gravy, it’s a hearty meal to share. Speaking of heart-warming, their roasted eggplant, on a heap of hummus, topped with toasty zaatar-tossed kale chips and tahini, is a piece de resistance that gives me more naches (that’s Yiddish for sheer delight) than I thought possible. If you’re in a veg-loading kind of mood, the Monkey Salad, with quinoa, roasted vegies, broccoli and dukkah-fried chickpeas will have you zinging all day. What they lack in space here they make up for in smiles – it’s the sort of service that makes you want to dip in more often. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

ddie Perfect is back on stage with a new production of his black comedy The Beast. While less-confident playwrights might try to curry favour with their audience, Eddie is going straight for the jugular. “There’s the great saying that if you’re going to tell people the truth, you’d better make it funny or they’ll kill you,” Eddie says. The Beast, first staged in 2013 for Melbourne Theatre Company, sees three tree-changing couples brought face-to-face with the reality of life on the land. It’s a savage takedown of latte-sipping, organic-eating, bicycle-riding, middle-class Melburnians. In other words, a sustained attack on the very people most likely to pay for a ticket. Eddie says he tried not to think about the audience reaction when writing the play.

EDDIE PERFECT

see \ the beast

“The idea of sitting in a theatre and being made to feel uncomfortable is an art that’s dying. There’s definitely a culture of outrage that demands people feel safe at all times. Theatre’s one of the last places you can see some dark, challenging stuff.” Eddie says he was surprised by how dark the script was on revisiting it. He’s now swapping a backstage role for a starring part as one half of one of the three couples. Knowing the first run was a great success has brought a new joy to rehearsals, he says, along with a willingness to resist any urges to make the characters more likeable. “Now that we know the humour works, we can really delve into the nastiness of these characters. It’s not naturalism, it’s big and ridiculous and there’s blood all over the place. If you can show people their hypocrisies in a way that makes them laugh, you’re giving them a chance to enjoy and reflect without feeling preached to, lectured at or admonished.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Beast, Comedy Theatre, August 25 to September 4, $79.90-$129.90 thebeastplay.com

The Age of Bowie By Paul Morley, Simon & Schuster, $45 simonandschuster.com.au

As one Twitter wag recently joked, future historians will note David Bowie’s death as the moment when everything started going to pot. Music critic Paul Morley has an explanation for this – we’re beyond the glorious Age of Bowie, a rich period of cultural progress and innovation. His tribute is a loving, personal one and a fittingly unconventional celebration. More than that, it’s a tribute to the life-changing impact of pop music. ●

Powderfinger was one of those bands who managed to be massive without ever actually being cool (Coldplay know what I’m talking about there) and there’s a sense here that Bernard is happy just doing his own thing.

JOE HAJDU

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

Joe Hajdu is an author and academic who has always been interested in cities and their people. He recently published Budapest: A History of Grandeur and Catastrophe, which took him back to his birth country, Hungary. “It brings to the fore my earliest memories of the war. Things I’d long suppressed, but which no doubt helped form me,” Joe says. He says that’s what’s interesting about cities; they influence and shape people. “Cities are where thousands, if not millions, of people interact. They create things, they build things, they invent things, they enjoy things.” Joe lives in Ashburton and loves it for its greenery and friendly people.

I love Ashburton

Where do you go to pick up a good book? You can’t beat Jeffreys Books. They are an excellent independent bookshop and Linda Tassone and her staff bend over backwards to be helpful. For a fantastic meal? Our local shop, Eat Fish, in High Street is tops

– the fish is always fresh and there’s a wide selection. Sometimes I buy it grilled and eat it there, or fresh and bring it home to fry. For something special, I revert to my Hungarian roots and drive to The Little Hungarian Restaurant in Caulfield. Fantastic! Flavours like I grew up with. For a great cuppa? I go to E’latte in High Street at least once a week. Jimmy and Eva are very friendly. We always have good chat while I get my Earl Grey tea with milk on the side. For an interesting bottle of wine? Vintage Cellars is hard to beat. They have a good selection and are very helpful. For a bit of exercise? I have a choice of walks – along Gardiners Creek, through Ferndale Park, or along the old Outer Circle Train line. Each one has its own charm. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG » joehajdu.com

We try SLEEP CLINIC

The reality I meet Dr Marcus McMahon, a respiratory and sleep physician at Epworth Richmond Hospital. He confirms that things I feel on a daily basis – irritable, overwhelmed and tired – could all be solved with proper sleep patterns. Next it’s an overnight stay at the hospital (where parking is free if validated). I arrive around 6pm and am escorted by Darrel, who is conducting the study, to a private room. After dinner, he’s back to connect me to the monitoring devices (there’s also a camera in the room). Sensor probes are stuck on my legs, chest, left rib, face, jaw and head. There are tubes just resting in my nostrils to monitor my breathing. Next morning, I wake up to be told I’d been in a dream state for the past 25 minutes. Two days later, I’m back to see Dr McMahon for the results. Turns out I don’t have sleep apnoea, but I do clench my jaw when I sleep. My mind was also very active.

The pay-off Options to calm my mind include getting to bed at a regular time, creating a ‘‘going to bed ritual’’ and medication. I should also see a craniofacial physio for my jaw clenching. The pain factor I highly recommend bringing your own pillow. Who should try it? Anyone who feels their sleep isn’t refreshing or is excessively tired throughout the day. The bill Most private health insurance should cover the overnight hospital stay, which is $1100 to do the sleep study. Your policy type will determine the gap you have to pay. A portion of the specialist’s bill is covered by a Medicare rebate; ask your specialist beforehand if there are any out-of-pocket expenses involved. (ISTOCK)

The promise Adults should get between seven and eight hours of sleep a night – but many of us don’t. Epworth Richmond’s sleep clinic implements treatment programs for people who aren’t getting enough shut-eye as a result of issues including sleep apnoea and insomnia.

Epworth Richmond 89 Bridge Road, Richmond Sleep Clinic appointments: 9426 6666 or Dr McMahon’s rooms: 9274 8000 A referral from your GP is required.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

Yes. It was a great experience and I’m so happy to know what’s keeping me up at night! ●

“They’re all really classic pieces that you should be able to keep in your wardrobe for the rest of your life.” Who’s behind the counter? Sarah Connors opened her bricks-and-mortar store two months ago, after 12 years of selling her designs online and in other stores. “I was looking for a new studio and stumbled across this amazing space and suddenly I was opening a shop,” she says. Sarah has found that the locals of Auburn Village have really embraced her studio and store. “It’s been great the amount of local people who go ‘oh, thank god, there’s something else like this in the village – we love this kind of thing’ and have just supported the business,” she says. What’s in store? Luxury bags and accessories made from quality leathers in simple and timeless styles. Sarah’s core range, including her cowhide pieces, are done every year and monthly fashion pieces are then made in small runs to keep things interesting. “Everything we stock is handmade. I make a lot of it,” she says. Whatever she can’t make is made by small Melbourne-based manufacturers and

In primary school, she was a member of the CSIRO’s Double Helix Science Club and she penned letters to her favourite astronomers. “Among my Christmas presents in early primary school were a chemistry set and a microscope,” Ainsley says. It’s no surprise then that Ainsley’s studies and subsequent work in academia have led her to become an Associate Professor of Bioethics at the University of Sydney. She has also worked at United Kingdom universities as a researcher and teacher in this field. “My job at the University of Sydney is a mix of research and teaching,” she says. “My research involves looking at the ethical implications of genomics: the investigation of our DNA. Some of my current projects include working with other researchers to look at: sequencing the whole genomes of cancer patients; what people’s attitudes are to sequencing foetal genomes and whether receiving genetic information might lead us to change our health behaviour. “On the teaching side, I lead the Sydney Bioethics Program of postgraduate coursework and run some of the subjects within it. “I also have some research students, who are looking at ethical issues in areas such as personalised medicine and altruism in genomic research.” Ainsley says her work allows reflection on advances in science – particularly medical science. “Most people will be familiar with debates such as whether it’s ever OK for a woman or couple to end a pregnancy when an abnormality is found. “Bioethics allows us to reflect on what is happening in genetics and human reproduction and whether things should progress in a certain direction or another. “Genomics is advancing rapidly and we are already seeing companies being set up to offer information without necessarily having the appropriate credentials to do so. “Academics in my discipline ask the ‘should’ questions – should everyone have their genome sequenced, for example – and we answer them by engaging in reasoned debate. Without bioethics, I fear that we would lack an important way to build in checks and balances in the development and dissemination of new medical technologies.” Ainsley says her inspiration to work in the bioethics field of science came while she was a student at Strathcona Girls Grammar in Canterbury in Melbourne’s east. “I remember reading a biology textbook in around year 10 and getting to the genetics chapter and just having a ‘Eureka!’ moment,” Ainsley says. “I found its principles very intuitive and I loved that you could solve problems by thinking them through rather than having to memorise lots of formulas. “But this was also around the time that big public debates over genetically modified food sources were happening – and I remember thinking that while the actual science of

Strathcona Girls Grammar School 34 Scott Street, Canterbury, 3126 8779 7500 strathcona.vic.edu.au genetics was great, I was more interested in its broader implications for society.” After graduating from Strathcona, Ainsley studied at the University of Melbourne and gained a Bachelor of Science with honours in human genetics, a Bachelor of Laws (awarded with honours) and a PhD in bioethics. She then moved overseas to work at various universities. It was while she was employed at the University of Bristol in 2010 that Ainsley was recognised for her work – receiving awards including the Strathcona Medal. “It was a special year for me,” Ainsley says.

“First, I was named as the Young Australian of the Year in the UK for my services to academic research in bioethics and I think the Strathcona Medal came off the back of that. “Recognition from my school, in a sea of amazing alumnae, was quite humbling. “But it was also the year I had my first child, so life changed completely.” After almost a decade living and working overseas, Ainsley moved back to Australia with her partner and two young children in 2013 to continue her work in bioethics. She is currently undertaking a research project – GeniOz – which involves a survey of

Australians about genetic testing. She’s asking Melburnians to take part. “You can help shape how policy around personal genetic testing is made in Australia, to ensure that Australians have every opportunity to make informed choices about these technologies.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au » The survey should take about 20 minutes, and there are regular draws to win a $300 voucher.

Driving it is effortless, it’s nicely responsive and always robust. It’s comfortable and feels solid and well-made, with excellent fit and finish. There’s pretty good room everywhere, too, including the cargo area. It’s only when you start figuring the amount of interior space that you realise this is a deceptively large car – to drive, it feels smaller than it really is. But don’t fret, it has a good back-up camera and it’s easy to reverse park, even in tight spots. The electronics can get challenging and require patience as you get to know your way around – it comes with time – but the audio is pretty good and passenger comfort is great throughout. ●

your speed, so the motor is smooth, flexible and easy to drive. The Outback is certainly not quick off the mark but there’s solid performance at all times. And it is competent in the bush. It might not be an off-roader but it will do muddy tracks and corrugated dirt roads without a problem. It rides pretty well although it can get a bit bouncy over rough bitumen. The handling is impressive for a wagon and the rear end is tied down very well for fast, predictable cornering that always feels secure. All-wheel-drive helps here and it’s good in the wet. The Outback isn’t cheap but then you pay for quality, and some of the extra you’ve shelled out comes back to you down the track in higher resale value. Even so I think the sub-$40,000 base model, also with the diesel engine, presents better value. ●

ottie Goldsmith lives in St Kilda in a stylish and homely 1920s apartment she has renovated. “I would describe the decorating style as simple, eclectic, Zen,” she says. She has been here for three years and lives with her cat Jagger May, named after Mick Jagger’s daughter Georgia May Jagger – whom she met when she interviewed the model’s mum, Jerry Hall. “I took my daughter Layla and we all got on so well, and I loved Georgia May so much I called my cat Jagger May.” For the past few months Tottie has been busy criss-crossing the country performing with her band the Chantoozies (with Eve von Bibra and Ally Fowler), which celebrate their 30th anniversary on August 27, Tottie’s birthday. “It started as a bit of fun in 1986 on my 24th birthday,” she says. “We didn’t go out to become a band, we just put on a show for my birthday, but it shows what energy and having the same vision can manifest.” ● PETER WILMOTH pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Chantoozies play at The Flying Saucer Club in Elsternwick on August 27 and the Satellite Club in Wheelers Hill on September 3. thechantoozies.com

We were Priscilla Queen of the Desert before Priscilla Queen of the Desert Desert. These are a reminder of the connection of the land and the songlines and the stories.

M Y C AT J A G G E R M AY My neighbour had a rescued cat whose family got caught in a storm-water drain and Jagger May was a survivor. I think animals come to you for a soul reason. There’s here’s a need for each other and we’ve both had abandonment issues. Cats ats have a very soothing, peaceful, calm, Zen kind of vibe about them. She’s just a really good pal.

THE STONE BOWL OF SENTIMENTS Everything in this bowl came from a grandmother, mother, an aunt or my father. It’s my little eclectic bowl of my family. I light a candle in it. It’s my family in a beautiful stone bowl. And there’s a crystal ball from a profound relationship with a guy I was engaged to.

Wearing my mum’s watch, I know that her blood pulsed underneath it. And when I’m wearing it, it’s her inside me so it’s profound. We lost our mother (Rona Newton-John) three years ago. We were really close before she died and we had a beautiful goodbye. I miss her at the moment. It goes in waves.

POWER TO T THE POCKET 17 POWER AVENUE, E, T TOOR AK, 3142

hey used to call this part of Toorak Power’s Paddock, after pastoralist Thomas Herbert Power. In 1880, he commissioned architect Francis White to design his new home, Moonga, in Toorak Road. The house, which faced Gardiners Creek, had 36 rooms to accommodate his seven children. In 1913, the land around Moonga was subdivided to create the south end of Power Avenue. Some 20 years later, architect Arnaud Wright designed several houses in the old-English style on the west side of Power Avenue, which is now one of Toorak’s most prestigious pockets. The house at No.17, on 874 square metres, is classic old-English: white-rendered brick walls, a steeply pitched roof with brick chimneys protruding skywards, and a garage incorporated into the roofline to give it storybook appeal. Wright, known for using bay windows, included a bay in the front room to overlook the lawn and garden. The house, while retaining its original footprint, has been completely renovated. It has four living rooms, a new kitchen, study, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, swimming pool, pavilion and deck. New European oak floors, Calacatta marble and gas open fireplaces are nods to contemporary design. The building is nudging 85 but it is solid as a rock, with great proportions and excellent family accommodation. Elements of 1930s style come from the diamond leadlight window in the entrance hall, the original front door – painted glossy grey – internal timber doors and cornices. Timber panelling to shoulder height in the entrance hall would have once made the house dark but it has been painted white, like the rest of the interiors. The timber staircase is a standout – not just because it provides a gentle climb to the first floor but also because of its handsome arts and crafts balustrade and handrail. Once polished timber, it is painted white with a black handrail. Tucked away beside the staircase, the powder room, large by

modern standards, breaks out of the all-white theme with grey wallpapered walls. Residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to living rooms. They can move from the formal sitting room with open fireplace to a smaller living room with a view to the front garden, or relax beside the open fire in the original living room. From here, it is on to the informal dining and living zone. Several small, dark rooms were knocked out to create this large living area measuring 10 metres by 4 metres. Three sets of french doors with white plantation shutters open to the north-west-facing back garden and pool. At the end of this living/dining room, an all-white kitchen is made up of white Calacatta marble benchtops and slim-line white drawers and cabinets fitted with Miele appliances, including two dishwashers. A picture window above the double sink faces south but serves to draw light into the kitchen, as does a bay window overlooking the deck. A new laundry has a stone bench, full-height 2pac cabinets and an extra-wide sink. The stairs lead to a landing that, in turn, opens to one of the most appealing rooms on the house – the book-lined study with built-in desk. Then it’s on to the four bedrooms. The main bedroom opens to a walk-in wardrobe fitted with drawers and cabinets. The en suite, tiled in marble from floor to ceiling, has a frameless glass shower and a vanity with two basins. Views from the window of the main bedroom stretch across the garden, through the treetops and past the houses on the other side of the street. The bedroom at the front of the house has similar views. The three minor bedrooms share a bathroom with a frameless glass shower, a bath and marble tiles from floor to ceiling. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

ASHBURTON \ 15 COMAS GROVE With its chook pen, vegetable patch and gigantic back garden, this property gives a nod to pre-World War II Ashburton, when the suburb was not much more than dairy farms and orchards. Just two blocks from Gardiners Creek Trail, the house is on 1078 square metres and has privacy in spades. Built three years ago, it has three living areas, ensuring family members will have their own space. Set well back from the street, the house is surrounded by established gardens by Esjay Landscapes and COS Designs. In keeping with the streetscape, which is mostly made up of interwar brick villas, the house presents a brick and rendered facade of symmetry and proportion. A wide hallway leads past a study and formal living room to the open-plan family hub. Beautifully appointed with stone tiles and white joinery, this room is designed to capture natural light. Glass doors open to the north-facing garden, which has a mix of spaces for rest, recreation and entertaining. There is also a pool, spa and an adventure playground. The first floor is given over to five bedrooms with built-in or walk-in wardrobes. At the back is the glorious main, which has a sheltered terrace, a walk-in wardrobe and a palatial en suite with luxury spa bath and double shower. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

This inviting house still looks fantastic some 88 years after it was built. Having been renovated in 2000, it blends modern and period features. The facade is a delightful marriage of red brick and painted weatherboards. Inside, polished floorboards lead along the hall to the living spaces behind. Three carpeted bedrooms are near the entry. The first has a decorative strapped ceiling and built-in wardrobes. The formal lounge has split-system air-conditioning and provides access to another of the bedrooms. At the rear, the living and dining spaces are open plan. With an east-facing wall of windows and glass doors, this is an area that gets plenty of natural light. It is overlooked by the spacious kitchen, which has black granite benches and sleek stainless-steel appliances. Outside, there’s a large deck, lawn and in-ground pool. Upstairs, a parents’ zone combines the main bedroom, a study nook, walk-in wardrobe and luxuriously spacious en suite. A tandem carport takes care of parking. ● JULIAN HEALEY

KEW \ 51 STAW TA ELL STREET TAW The hills and gullies of Kew’s Studley Park house some of the suburb’s most interesting architecture. This solid brick modernist house was designed by noted Austrian postwar emigre architect Kurt Popper, and built in 1970. The vendor, the property’s second owner, has renovated the house, keeping within its original footprint but adding a self-cleaning pool, deck, garden and outdoor entertainment area. Along the way, she has kept the best original features while making it utterly contemporary. Aesthetically, the house is a bold brick rectangle with a flat roof. A timber balcony at the front has a garage beneath. Original crazy-paved steps in Castlemaine stone to the front door soften the exterior. Linen-like wallpaper in the living rooms was retained. The house is neatly divided between the living zones at the front, an open-plan kitchen/dining/ family area with new floors, and a bedroom wing. In the kitchen, oak timber cabinetry combines with grey Italian marble benchtops, grey cabinets and Miele appliances. Three identical children’s bedrooms are served by two bathrooms with oak cabinets, Carrara marble benchtops and Apaiser basins. The main suite is a magnificent reworking of the original. The bedroom leads to a big dressing room and on to the en suite with bath, double shower behind frameless glass and twin oval basins. ● MARIA HARRIS

It’s modern yet with elaborate Victorian ceilings and an arched hallway. It’s the sort of city-edge pad South Yarra does so well. The single-fronted house has a walled front courtyard and tessellated-tile verandah. The two carpeted double bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and one has a fireplace. Down the hall, cupboards and a concealed laundry lead to the bathroom, chic in white and turquoise with a bath, shower and leadlight window featuring a yacht. Blackbutt floors grace the open-plan area, which begins with a smart three-sided kitchen with cream stone benchtops. The spacious communal area has a Heat & Glo gas log fireplace.

Holding nothing back, this early 1980s brick townhouse handsomely illustrates the architecture of the decade. On about 355 square metres, with a double garage at the front and residence and pool at the rear, the house is original and has been well maintained. Inside, the quintessential ’80s sunken living room is front and centre. With an open fireplace with striking copper flue and carpet underfoot, the room steps up to a dining room with sloping timber ceiling and outside to a courtyard and pool. Tucked behind the dining area, the kitchen has conservatory-style windows and a separate meals space. The three carpeted bedrooms are upstairs. The smallest has a built-in wardrobe, while the two bigger rooms have walk-in wardrobes and access to a shared balcony. The main has an en suite. There’s a family bathroom on this floor and expansive northerly views. The property is close to public transport, with Hislop Park behind and Gordon Barnard Reserve across the road. ● JULIAN HEALEY

The renovations are subtle, the extensions discreet, the garden glorious. This weatherboard house lays on the charm, offering a sanctuary to take a family from tots to teens and beyond. The house makes a compact footprint on lots of land, with plenty of room indoors complemented by a north-facing rear garden and a usable front yard with tyre swing. Two living areas give parents and kids a choice of attractive places to hang out. The original living room, at the front, has diamond-paned sash windows, picture rails and a panelled ceiling. Out the back, the modern meals and family area has jarrah floorboards and full-length windows and sliding doors to the wide, covered deck and garden. In one corner is the cream stone kitchen, which has Westinghouse cooking appliances and a Bosch dishwasher. The large study has fitted bookshelves and a desk. Two main bedrooms – one up, one down – have retreats. Bedroom three, downstairs, is a single and the fourth, upstairs, is a double. There’s a bathroom on each floor. ● ALISON BARCLAY

MALVERN \ 3 MARY STREET Standing handsomely in a prestigious Malvern location, this is a splendid example of contemporary architecture infused with dainty detailing. The state-of-the-art, recently built two-level house is a stone’s throw from Auburn High School and Tooronga station. Inside, white and light-grey interiors contrast with fresh European oak floorboards. The entry hall leads to a spacious main living area showcasing a double-sided fireplace. The kitchen’s full suite includes an exquisite marble benchtop, large butler’s pantry, Wolf appliances, Liebherr refrigeration and two dishwashers. The laundry is nearby. Opposite, the family and meals area has large floor-to-ceiling windows. There are four bedrooms, all upstairs. The main bedroom offers a luxurious setting with an Eichholtz chandelier, a walk-in-wardrobe complete with wood-grain-laminate finish, and a marble-coated en suite with freestanding bath. A feature window frames spectacular views. The outdoors is equally high-end, with a large deck sitting above a remarkable glass-fenced pool. Designed with a family focus to make long-lasting memories, this house has two studies, a retreat, double garage, wine cellar and hydronic heating. ● SUZAN DELIBASIC

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.
