New Street Names for Melrose Park

Melrose Park is undergoing a massive

transformation, with around 5,000 new homes

being built over the next 10 years. Council

recently endorsed a selection of proposed

names for five new roads and a park in this

growing precinct.

The names were chosen to honour the area’s

historic past, including: Appleroth Street, a

tribute to Adolphus Herbert Frederick Norman

Appleroth, the creator of Aeroplane Jelly which

had a factory in the area; Bundil Boulevard, in

remembrance of Sally Bundil, a local Aboriginal

woman born in the early 1800s; and Putt Putt

Park, in recognition of the much-loved mini-golf

course that was formerly located at the site

between 1969 and 2016.

By naming Melrose Park’s new roads and open

spaces after the people and businesses that

once called this place home, we are keeping the

area’s unique and fascinating history alive.

Parramatta welcomes new NSW Civil

and Administrative Tribunal

On Monday 15 February, I attended the opening

of the new state-of-the-art NSW Civil and

Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) registry and

hearing rooms in Parramatta, alongside

Attorney-General Mark Speakman and

President of the NCAT Justice Lea Armstrong.

This is a huge win for the people of Western

Sydney, providing our community with specialist

tribunal services on their doorstep to help

resolve a wide range of civil matters.

Council has long been advocating for

Parramatta’s highly-valued Justice Precinct

to be expanded and as our City continues to

grow, we look forward to more critical services

like NCAT being located in the centre of global

Sydney.

“Not very significant”

As the Willow Grove saga rolls on, Don Harwin makes one final pot shot

NICOLA BARTON

A

number of questions surrounding

the Powerhouse Parramatta

project remain unanswered, as

preliminary works on the budgeted $840

million project commenced last week.

On Monday, Arts Minister Don Harwin

fronted a Parliamentary Inquiry into the

project, revealing several uncertainties,

particularly regarding the project’s delivery

timeline and budget.

Documentation also revealed that the

State Government has 12 months following

the deconstruction of Willow Grove to

supply the Planning Secretary with details

of the new location, the relocation process,

a commitment delivery date for its new

location and its potential future uses.

Those in opposition of the move are

concerned that this is not a concrete

guarantee of its relocation and believe

something so old and fragile should not be

put in storage for years.

Mr Harwin appeared on 2GB Radio on

Tuesday morning to discuss the project.

Host Ben Fordham asked the Minister

to guarantee that Willow Grove will be

Willow Grove in Parramatta.

rebuilt, to which he gave his word.

During the segment, Mr Harwin referred

to the 19th century historic building as

“dilapidated” and said “it is not a very

significant building at all”.

“While Willow Grove has some sentimental

attachment… it’s frankly not a very

significant building at all,” he said.

“But as a measure of goodwill for the

local people, we are prepared to keep it.”

Mr Harwin denied the move was a waste

of taxpayers’ money, although he was

unable to confirm the updated cost of the

rebuild.

Previously the State Government had

announced it would cost $10 million,

however architects have since criticised

this figure, claiming it would be more so

towards the $20 million mark.

The inquiry heard that not a single

philanthropic donation has been made

towards the Parramatta Powerhouse’s

construction.

The State Government has previously

confirmed the development would rely on

a projected $75 million in donations.

Despite these revelations, Mr Harwin

told Mr Fordham that the philanthropy

target was “going really well”.

Outrage has flooded social media from

passionate community members who

have fought hard for the preservation of

Willow Grove, criticising the unanswered

questions highlighted during the hearing.

Despite the loud efforts of those opposed

to the plans, Mr Harwin insists there’s

plenty of residents in favour of the development.

“There are a lot of fans,” he said.

“The silent majority in western Sydney

are overwhelmingly in favour of it.”

Epping offers cautionary tale

Epping has always been a pleasant

pocket of Sydney. Even today, much of

that character lingers in fragrant, treelined

parades. Tranquil parks. Rows of

cottages and Victorian-era homes with

generous verandas that recall a simpler

time.

A diverse, migrant population has

moved in since I used to catch the train

through here as a schoolboy in the 1980s

and 1990s. Today, the area is a mix of established

residents, educated professionals

and growing young people. Parents

are ambitious for their children. But most

of all they just want a nice place to live.

Of course, change was always inevitable.

The Metro that opened in 2019 cemented

Epping’s status as a major transport junction.

However, the State Government’s

rezoning of Epping as an “Urban Activation

Precinct” in 2014 was definitely the

point of no return.

Tall unedifying unit blocks now gang up

on the railway line that divides the town

centre in half. Particularly apocalyptic are

the three half-finished “Langston Towers”

of 19, 24 and 29 storeys, which loom

over invariably congested Epping Bridge.

To make matters worse, prime government

land is being sold to create another

442 apartments.

Index

Entertainment ....................19-27

Business Directory ......28-30

Auto....................................................31

The tragedy is that Epping was once

home to big employers like Unilever,

the Department of Family and Community

Services and Westpac. But now,

apartments have gobbled up Epping’s

commercial footprint. The town centre

is largely deserted during the day, as

residents stay home or leave for jobs elsewhere.

At its February 8 meeting, the City of

Parramatta voted to try and change this

situation. In a well-reasoned submission,

Epping Ward councillor Bill Tyrrell

acknowledged that action was necessary

“to address the mistakes of the past, not

by council but by the State Government”.

But he and the council majority have

chosen a Faustian bargain: mandating

two floors of commercial space in new

developments in return for raising maximum

building heights from as low as 48

metres to 80 or 90 metres (28 storeys) in

different parts of central Epping.

The tallest of the Langston Towers won’t

just be an anomaly; it will become the

norm.

The bid by fellow Epping Ward councillor

Donna Davis to reverse the decision

– mandating more commercial space in

buildings without raising height limits –

reflects community feeling that the pendulum

towards developers has swung too

far.

But the wider issue remains: what is the

future for places like Epping all over Sydney?

A vision that reimagines Sydney as

three “30-minute cities” from the harbour

to Parramatta to the western aerotropolis

sounds catchy. However, what about all

the places in between where people actually

live? Smaller centres like Epping,

Carlingford, Northmead and Wentworthville

shouldn’t just be targets for soulless

residential towers with a smattering of

ground-level retail.

They should also be communities

where people meet, shop, study and

spend time. Providing accountants, lawyers,

architects and public servants with

either a place of employment or co-working

space to dock.

So let’s not give developers free rein

anymore to create gazillion-storey units.

Let’s enforce commercial space requirements

to support jobs and vibrant communities.

Epping offers a cautionary tale that towers

are not enough. A strong daytime office

worker presence is necessary to keep

shops in business and restore pride to a

suburb whose lovely pockets are being let

down by a tattered centre of town.

Stuck in web of trouble

Families say they’re frustrated by slow NBN speeds across the local area

NICOLA BARTON

Fed-up Parramatta residents say

more needs to be done to address

the issue of slow NBN, as some

experience download speeds five times

below the legal minimum standard.

For some areas around the region, the

wait for NBN connection was a long one,

with parts of the Parramatta CBD, Harris

Park and Rosehill still remaining unconnected

until 2022.

Dundas Valley resident Wanda Whittaker

said her family were thrilled to

finally receive the NBN last year.

However, since being connected, her

speeds have ranged anywhere from five

megabits per second (mbps) to 15.

A requirement of both the Australian

Law and NBN Co’s Statement of Expectations

is that the minimum standard

download speed is 25mbps.

For residents like Ms Whittaker, the

issue of slow speeds lies within the type of

connection.

Parra News spoke with three different

households experiencing issues, all of

which were connected to the NBN with

Federal Parramatta MP Julie Owens with Wanda Whittaker and her son Blake.

old copper technology. Technicians have

informed these residents their wires are

too old or they are too far away from the

node.

Ms Whittaker said it has been really

stressful for her family and she and her

husband work from home and her son is

studying remotely at TAFE NSW.

“Everyone trying to use it at once is

impossible so we’ve had to use our phone

plans and we’ve been out of pocket paying

for extra data,” she said.

FTTN cabinets are typically located

between five and 500 metres from a premise,

with some exceptions seeing a node

cabinet located up to 900 metres.

Parramatta resident Akhilesh Tripathi

lives in an apartment block, 1200 metres

away from the node and said it is impossible

for his young family to watch videos or

streaming services like Netflix or Amazon

Prime.

Federal Parramatta MP, Julie Owens said

her office has been flooded with similar

stories.

“The Coalition Government promised

we’d all have NBN with speeds of at least

25mbps by 2016; then it was 2018, then

2020,” she told Parra News.

“Locals who are ‘fortunate’ enough to

be connected are struggling with below

minimum speeds.”

An NBN Co spokesperson said they are

aware of a “small number” of customers

experiencing issues with speeds and

“understands that this can be frustrating”.

“The team is investigating and will work

to identify a solution as quickly as possible

to ensure we provide these residents

with a great experience on the NBN,” the

spokesperson said.

Last year the Federal Government

announced it would spend $3.5 billion to

rebuild the mixed-technology NBN with

fibre for millions of homes and businesses

across the country, following criticism of

the copper network.

Over 200,000 Australians remain without

minimum download speed.

Time to correct

errors of the past

NICOLA BARTON

A

motion has been moved for a

planning proposal aimed at

combatting commercial floor

space shortages in Epping’s Town Centre;

but some Councillors aren’t convinced it

won’t mean more density for the alreadycongested

suburb.

It is an issue that dates back to 2014, when

the Epping Urban Activation Precinct

rezoning was implemented by the State

Government, without any mandate of

minimum commercial floor space, leading

to the overdevelopment of high density

housing.

It was a move that City of Parramatta

Councillors from both sides of politics

agree was a mistake, as they look for ways

to reactivate the suburb.

Presented to Councillors was three

options to amend the Parramatta Local

Environmental Plan 2011 and Hornsby

Local Environmental Plan 2013, which

applies to most of the land in the B2 Local

Centre zone in the Epping Town Centre.

The chamber was split in their support

for Option 2 and 3.

Option 3, which was the motion recommendation,

would mandate a minimum

amount of non-residential floor space in

addition to the current permitted maximum

floor space ratio and height controls.

It states the clause shall also indicate

that the Floor Space Ratio (FSR) of residential

development permitted on the

site should not increase as a result of this

requirement.

Option 2 would also mandate a minimum

amount of non-residential floor

space but would have to be within the

current FSR and height controls.

Option 3 was passed with the casting

vote of Deputy Lord Mayor Michelle

Garrard, with support from Councillors

Bob Dwyer, Bill Tyrrell, Steve Issa, Martin

Zaitor, Andrew Jefferies and Lorraine

Wearne.

Epping Ward Councillor Donna Davis,

who pushed for Option 2, fears Option

3 will only worsen density issues and

believes the current LEP is already too

dense for the suburb.

“Traffic lights at Carlingford, Rawson

and Ray Road intersections will see a two

minute increase per cycle with the added

density of Option 3,” she said.

“Option 3 is going to provide density

that is way beyond what that town centre

LOCAL NEWS

Residents Cameron MacLean and Joanne Paul with City of Parramatta Councillor

Donna Davis, Vice President Epping Civic Trust Mike Moffatt and his wife Nowell.

should be expecting to have to put up

with.”

The Epping Civic Trust also supported

Option 2.

Epping Ward Councillor Bill Tyrrell,

who advocated for Option 3 disagreed,

stating there would not be an increase in

residential and that the increased times

highlighted in the traffic report were “not

excessive”.

“One thing we need to aim for and get

right in Epping is a balance of commercial

residential and retail,” he said.

“[Option 3] is making sure that we get

commercial floor space within each and

every site that is left to be developed.”

The Council recommendation of Option

3 was based on the market’s likely response

to the proposed planning controls to meet

the forecasted, additional demand for

commercial floorspace.

A rescinded motion on the matter has

been submitted.

If that is voted down, the Council CEO

will forward a Planning Proposal for

Option 3 to the Department of Planning,

Industry and Environment with a request

for a Gateway Determination.

Auburn: Nurse injured following

worrying shooting near hospital

Police are investigating a possible

gang-related shooting that saw a nurse

at Auburn Hospital injured by a stray

bullet.

Shortly before 8pm on Monday, February

15, police were called to a townhouse

complex on Auburn Road, Auburn,

following reports of a shooting.

On arrival, officers from Auburn Police

Area Command established a crime

scene after locating a number of bullet

holes in the front of a townhouse.

Residents who were inside at the time

were not injured.

Police were told at least two men,

dressed in black, were seen getting out of

a vehicle near the driveway of the townhouse

and fired a number of rounds.

Shortly after, police were notified by

staff at Auburn Hospital that a stray

bullet, fired at the townhouse, had

penetrated through a window at the rear

of Auburn Hospital, clipping a nurse.

She suffered a minor injury to her leg

and was treated.

Police are investigating all lines of

inquiry, including whether the shooting

was gang-related.

Superintendent Adam Johnson said it

was “too early to say” who was behind

the attack just yet.

“It’s a very serious incident; this behaviour

won’t be tolerated,” he said.

“Auburn detectives in consultation

with the State Crime Command are

currently conducting a thorough investigation.”

Auburn detectives, together with

the State Crime Command’s Criminal

Groups Squad are investigating the

incident and are calling for anyone who

may have information that can assist to

contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Wentworthville: 70-year-old man

arrested following alleged assault

A man has been charged following

investigations into the alleged sexual

assault of a young boy at Wentworthville.

About 1.15pm on Monday, February

15, it is alleged a 13-year-old boy entered

the public toilets at The Kingsway, Wentworthville.

While inside the facility he was sexually

assaulted by a 70-year-old man.

Local communities in western

Sydney are expected to feel the

loss of international students this

year, with COVID-19 restrictions not

allowing their entry into the country.

As of November, Premier Gladys

Berejiklian had plans to begin bringing

in 1000 international students to Sydney

each week. However, this plan was

shelved in January with caps introduced

on how many returned travellers NSW

could take.

“Normally, we have at any one time

in Australia around 700,000 full-fee

paying international students,” said Phil

Honeywood, CEO of the International

Education Association of Australia.

POLICE SNAPSHOT

Compiled by Nicola Barton

The man left the toilets and was chased

by the boy down the road where he was

arrested by officers from Cumberland

Police Area Command.

He was taken to Granville Police

Station where he was charged with

sexual assault of a child aged between 10

and 14-years-old.

Toongabbie: Police on hunt for red

Honda Accord related to stabbing

Homicide Squad detectives have

released CCTV vision of a vehicle of

interest and are appealing for public

assistance as they continue to investigate

the suspicious death of a man in

Toongabbie last year.

Just before 10.30pm on Sunday,

November 15, emergency services were

called to Budgeree Road, Toongabbie,

and found a man on the footpath suffering

multiple stab wounds.

Despite the efforts of emergency

services and members of the public, the

man died at the scene.

He has since been formally identified

as 49-year-old Warwick Hunter.

Officers from Parramatta Police Area

Command established a crime scene and

commenced inquiries into the incident,

before detectives from the Homicide

Squad took carriage of the investigation

under Strike Force Burranjurra.

As part of ongoing inquiries, detectives

have released CCTV vision of a vehicle

seen travelling on Wentworth Avenue,

Toongabbie, prior to the fatal stabbing.

The vehicle depicted in the CCTV is

described as being a red Honda Accord

Euro sedan with distinctive black rims

on the rear wheels and silver rims on the

front wheels.

Parramatta: Man, 41, stabbed at

train station in broad daylight

A man has faced court after being

charged following the stabbing of a man

in Parramatta last week.

About 1pm on Wednesday, February

17, emergency services were called to

Parramatta Railway Station where they

found a 41-year-old man suffering multiple

stab wounds to his abdomen.

He was taken to Westmead Hospital in

a serious condition.

Police have since arrested and charged

a man in connection with the stabbing.

Students leave $40b hole

This number has fallen significantly

throughout 2020, with a reported 99.7

per cent drop in how many students

entered the country between October

2019 and October 2020.

“According to the ABS, international

education is worth $40 billion a year to

our national economy,” Mr Honeywood

said.

“The way the ABS carves up that $40

billion is 60 per cent they estimate is

spent on living costs – rent through to

entertainment, and 40 per cent spent on

tuition fees.”

While some of these students attended

the Parramatta and Penrith campuses

of Western Sydney University, others

also attend city-based universities

and commute, also adding to the local

economy.

New laws will lead to pay cuts

For the last few months, the Morrison Government has

been trying to get it’s ‘Fair Work Amendment 2020’

through the Parliament.

It’s a nice title, but actually

it will make it easier to cut

pay and will undermine

job security. Workers in

Parramatta who were hardest

hit in the pandemic like those

in the retail and hospitality

sector will be among those

worse off.

Fortunately the Government

realised they faced a backlash

and scrapped one of the worst

changes last week – a twoyear

suspension of the Better

Off Overall Test, or BOOT.

While I’m glad the Government

has scrapped this temporary

change, I’m worried they will

try to push through the many

permanent changes in this

Bill that threaten workers’

income and job security. These

include:

‘Flexible’ part time

agreements that cut overtime

rates. Under these changes,

part time workers on some

awards can be paid ordinary

rates for overtime shifts, up to

38 hours a week – effectively

cutting their pay. It also

means that someone can

be employed on a part time

agreement but asked to work

up to full time hours, while

only being guaranteed 16

hours per week – undermining

job security.

Locking in pay for 8 years

on new work sites. On new

construction projects worth

$500 million or more (or

$250 million or more in some

circumstances) “greenfields

agreements” can set pay –

meaning workers can’t ask for

a pay rise – for up to 8 years.

If you’re worried about cuts

to your pay, you can help stop

these changes by signing my

Aged Care Royal Commission


If you’ve been following the Aged Care Royal

Commission over the past two years, you’ll know it’s

uncovered a system in crisis.

Its final report, due this Friday,

will make recommendations on

how the Morrison Government

can address the disgraceful

neglect of older Australians in

residential aged care – residents

found with maggots in open

wounds, being restrained and

over medicated, forced to sit

in soiled incontinence pads for

long periods, and up to half of

aged care residents suffering

malnourishment.

This is made all the more tragic

by the fact that the Coalition

Government has received 21

major reports since 2013 which

identified similar issues - but

failed to act, while cutting

funding.

You may not know just how much

of an impact aged care has on

our society. You may be living in

aged care or have a loved one

who does, but most people I

speak to don’t think they will end

up in aged care themselves.

The fact is, more than half of all

Australian women and about a

third of Australian men will end

up in residential aged care, where

the average length of stay is 2-3

years. That means in your lifetime

you will either live in aged care or

love someone who does.

I’m committed to raising voices

in our community on this issue

and will keep pressuring the

government to act. I’ll be hosting

a seniors forum so you can tell

what matters to you – call my

office on 9689 1455 or sign up

at julieowens.com.au/seniors

and we’ll send you an invitation.

School upgrade nears

Pendle Hill High School upgrade one step closer with tender to be chosen

NICOLA BARTON

Upgrades slated for Pendle Hill

High School are one step closer to

being realised, with construction

tenders to close by the end of the month.

This marks the next step in the project’s

delivery which will see the construction

of a new three-storey building with 14

modern classrooms, a range of new core

facilities and student amenities, as well as

a new lecture theatre, library spaces and

staff development space.

The project will also include a new main

entry to the school on Binalong Road,

Toongabbie.

The community will be invited to have

their say on the proposal when a State

Significant Development Application

(SSDA) is lodged in the coming months.

Seven Hills MP Mark Taylor said the

upgrade will support the needs of students

from Constitution Hill, Girraween, Old

Toongabbie, Pendle Hill, Toongabbie,

Wentworthville and Westmead.

“This upgrade will provide the local

community with the high-quality education

facilities our students and teachers

Gladys Berejiklian and Seven Hills MP Mark Taylor.

deserve,” he said.

Funding for the upgrade has been allocated

to proceed, with the next step being

to lodge the SSDA.

As part of this process, the Department

of Education has engaged a consultant to

conduct a Social Impact Assessment (SIA)

for the proposed upgrades.

Community and stakeholders will be

able to comment on the plans.

Pending Development Application

approval, construction works will start.

Minister for Education, Sarah Mitchell

said she was pleased the State Government

is delivering this important upgrade

for the local community.

“This is an incredible time for public

education in NSW,” she said.

“We are building more schools than ever

before and making generational reforms

The tender for the project is expected to

be awarded next month, with the upgrade

anticipated for completion in late next

The project is part of the State Government’s

$7 billion school delivery program

which is set to deliver more than 200 new

and upgraded schools over a four-year

period.

Push for safer delivery

State Government releases new guidelines to protect food delivery drivers

NICOLA BARTON

The safety of food delivery drivers

is at the forefront of new draft

guidelines released by the State

Government recently.

The guidelines have been put forward for

industry consultation, following a string of

food delivery rider fatalities last year.

Minister for Better Regulation Kevin

Anderson said the new guide is part of

the State Government’s commitment to

ensuring the health and safety of all food

delivery workers.

“We’ve developed these strategies in

partnership with industry to help food

delivery operators, drivers and restaurants

understand their obligations under

NSW Work Health and Safety Legislation,”

he said.

“The fast growth of the gig economy has

created uncertainty and confusion in the

sector about what each party should be

doing to comply with the law and what

protections should be in place, particularly

when it comes to food delivery riders

who are independently contracting to the

big platforms.”

Delivery rider Amit Kumar and City of Parramatta Councillor Sameer Pandey.

The guidelines outline existing hazards

in the industry, such as poorly maintained

bikes, fatigue and extreme weather conditions,

and the actions that must be taken

by delivery platforms, drivers and restaurants

to mitigate these risks.

“Safety is everyone’s responsibility and

this guide clarifies the role of the platform

operator, the rider and the restaurant to

ultimately make the gig economy a safer

workplace and to save lives,” Mr Anderson

said.

“The guidelines are about making sure

that industry participants understand

how the legislation we have in place

applies to them, to ensure that our laws

protect every worker in this state.”

Last year City of Parramatta Councillor

Sameer Pandey put forward a motion that

received unanimous support, seeking the

Council to implement safety and awareness

measures to improve the safety of

riders and pedestrians.

A report is currently being drafted to

be put forward at the March 22 Council

meeting. Cr Pandey welcomed the release

of the draft guidelines but said we need to

make sure providers are held accountable.

“There are a number of issues that need

to be addressed and there has to be a

collaborative approach with onus of safety

on the delivery platform providers such as

UberEats and Deliveroo,” he said.

“We need to make significant reforms

in the regulations, policies and practices

of delivery platforms and the government

should be at the forefront of this intervention

and not leave it just with the providers

to self-regulate.

“The platform providers must take full

legal and moral responsibility to provide a

safe workplace.”

The draft guidelines are projected to be

finalised as released as an Industry Safety

Action Plan in April.

New principal joins St Paul’s

Catholic College Greystanes

NICOLA BARTON

St Paul’s Catholic College Greystanes

is welcoming a new face to its

campus with the appointment of

Principal, Paul Finneran.

Mr Finneran has now officially

commenced his role after moving back to

Sydney from Melbourne, where he served

as Deputy Principal at the Academy of

Mary Immaculate College in Fitzroy.

Mr Finneran has big plans for the school

and described himself as a “change

agent”.

“We are moving into a space where we

are co-learners with our students and

with our families,” he said.

“The remote learning experience last

year during the COVID-19 lockdown,

particularly in Melbourne where it was

a significant part of the year, showed me

that there is going to be a real blended

learning environment moving forward.

“That challenges us to be adaptable and

flexible in our delivery and in the modes

of learning and teaching that we offer.”

Mr Finneran is familiar with the

Diocese of Parramatta having worked at

St Patrick’s Marist College Dundas early

in his career.

EXPLORING PARRAMATTA

Take a stroll through

Parramatta’s proud history: The incredible sites across our local area that

GRACE O’HEARN

When you live close by, it’s easy to

forget that Parramatta is one of

the most historically rich cities

in Australia. Before European settlement,

Parramatta was home to the Darug

people who flourished with the area’s

plentiful food supplies from the river and

bush. When the Europeans arrived in

Parramatta, it became the oldest inland

European Settlement in Australia. Today,

there are many sites that are significant

for both the European and Indigenous

history of Parramatta, here are six of the

best.

Riverside Walk

Starting near the Parramatta Visitor

Centre is a walk beside Parramatta River,

where artwork on the paths depict the

Indigenous history of Parramatta. This is a

great place to take your kids to introduce

them to Indigenous history. The art shows

the timeline from the beginnings of Indigenous

history in the area, to what happened

to the Indigenous population when the

Europeans arrived in Parramatta.

Riverside Walk.

Female Factory Precinct

Located in the Cumberland Hospital

Precinct is what remains of the Female

Factory, which originally housed female

convicts from as early as 1821. The women

held at the factory were made to do long

work hours; some of this work was very

physically challenging, such as stone

breaking. Today, one in 10 Australians are

believed to be descended from a Female

Factory woman. The precinct is open for

the public to stroll around the precinct

grounds and admire the architecture

from the outside, or alternatively you can

book a tour. Other points of interest in the

precinct include the Orphanage and the

Lunatic and Invalid Asylum.

Old Government House

Found within the grounds of Parramatta

Park is the grand building of Old Government

House that overlooks Parramatta

River and is the oldest surviving public

building in Australia. The UNESCO World

Heritage Site housed the first decisionmaking

governors of the colony. Scars on

trees close to Old Government House are

records of the ‘firestick’ land management

practice that the Darug people used.

Parramatta Gaol.

Hambledon Cottage.

Parramatta Gaol

Parramatta Gaol is Australia’s oldest

standing gaol, built in 1842 and found in

North Parramatta. Over more than 150

years of operation, the Gaol housed some

of the worst criminals in NSW within its

high sandstone walls, until it was decommissioned

in 2011. In 2015 the federal

government handed ownership of the

property back to the Deerubbin Local

Aboriginal Land Council. Today, the Gaol

holds regular events such as ghost tours.

Hambledon Cottage

Located close to Elizabeth Farm is

Hambledon Cottage, built for John Mcarthur

in 1824 to accommodate any friends

or family that came to stay. At Hambledon

Cottage you’ll be able to experience and

learn about what life was like in the 19th

Century. The Cottage is open weekends.

Recreating a

Parisian icon

NICOLA BARTON

Love is still in the air at The Children’s

Hospital, Westmead, as they

begin to wrap up their February

‘love month’ activities.

This year, hospital staff wanted to put

a smile on the faces of the children and

families in the Oncology Treatment

Centre (OTC) by bringing a slice of Paris to

the ward.

The Child Life Therapy team set up an

installation to recreate the Pont des Arts,

otherwise known as ‘love lock’ bridge.

Here, families are able to leave their own

love locks where they are encouraged to

share their feelings or a message for others

in the same situation as them.

Many uplifting messages have flooded

the wall over the course of the month,

from uplifting and inspirational quotes to

wishes of health and happiness, to even

thanking the doctors and nurses who

work so hard to care for their patients.

Child Life and Music Therapy Assistant,

Angelica Torrijos, said with current

international travel restrictions due to the

pandemic, they wanted to introduce the

theme of Paris as a fun way for the families

to get away from their realities and share

positive messages with one another.

“We want to promote family involvement,

so we are always coming up with

activities that help to lift everyone’s spirits

in their difficult times,” she told Parra

News.

“I’ve been at the hospital for three years

and the first year we got them to write on

hearts, the second we had a love wall and

this year we thought it would be fun to

recreate the Paris love lock bridge, especially

given we can’t travel.

“Everything we do is for the children and

the families; we just want to help them

forget and provide uplifting and inspiring

activities.”

The installation is set up in the OTC,

where patients and families come, often

multiple times a week, for chemo and

other cancer-related appointments.

Hospital volunteers spent hours cutting

out the elements for the installation, proving

to be a mammoth joint effort by teams

across the hospital.

Ms Torrijos said it was heartening to read

the encouraging words written on the

padlock cut outs and even more so to see

how the families reacted to reading them.

“They loved reading all of the messages,”

she said.

“Some of the messages said to keep

strong or keep fighting, some thanked the

doctors or shared inspirational quotes;

they are all really special.

“If we can do something that will make

the family’s day a little more bright or positive

then we want to do that.”

HAVING THE TIME

OF THEIR LIVES

ERIN CHRISTIE

Flipping the chaos of 2020, Sydney

band The Rubens are back

with their long-awaited fourth

studio album, ‘0202’.

It was a particularly backward

year for the band, which had to postpone a

planned tour, which will now kick-off this

April instead. However, the new album has

been in the works for much longer, with

the band beginning the songwriting process

in 2018.

“I think it’s a pretty broad album in its

sound and its influence,” Elliot Margin,

who plays keys for The Rubens, told Parra

News.

“There’s been a lot of experimenting …

we’re four albums in and we want to keep

things interesting.

“As long as we keep experimenting, we’ll

gain new fans and keep old ones along for

the ride.”

The album, released last Friday, was

teased through several singles that were

released early. ‘Time of my Life’, the third

single released from the album, carried a

particularly timely message.

“It’s about not being able to enjoy something

that should be a good time for you,”

Elliot explained.

“We were getting a lot of messages from

students and teachers, especially HSC

students … explaining their experience

through COVID and not being able to do

all the fun things they should be able to do

at that time in their life.”

These messages inspired the band’s

choice to feature a number of HSC students

in the music video for ‘Time of my

Life’.

“It’s funny, I think a lot of the time music

that was written during a different time, released

now, you take it in a different context

and see it as almost prophetic,” Elliot

said.

Currently rehearsing for their upcoming

shows, Elliot said it had been exciting to be

performing once more.

“It’s been kind of really surreal to come

back together, us boys, and be in a rehearsal

room and dust off the cobwebs,” he said.

It’s been over a year since they last performed

together. Currently, they are rehearsing

album launch shows, but will

soon be working on their shows for 2021.

Their original 2020 ‘Live in Life’ tour was

postponed due to COVID-19. Their rescheduled

dates for September 2020 were

pushed back once more, to what is now the

‘0202’ album tour.

The Rubens’ latest album, ‘0202’, is

available now.

Like every other reality show this

year, ‘Australian Survivor’ will film its

upcoming season domestically. With Fiji

and Samoa out of action for the foreseeable

future, the next season of 10’s

mega hit show will film in Queensland.

‘Australian Survivor’ will ditch the island

in the outback country town of Cloncurry.

To help with the move, the Jonathan

LaPaglia-hosted series will receive

$3.9 million in funding from the Morrison

Government’s Location Incentive

Program. Filming on the next season of

‘Australian Survivor’ will get underway in

the coming months.

Good news for fans of the 7mate

series ‘Housos’, with the network greenlighting

another season in 2021.

At the movies...

Emotional journey through time

LONG STORY SHORT


1 hour, 30 minutes

ERIN CHRISTIE

Josh Lawson achieves a lot with

‘Long Story Short’, which manages to

be an anxiety-inducing, yet funny and

romantic reminder about the shrinking

nature of time.

Teddy, a classic procrastinator stuck

in a job he can’t make sense of, is

handed a ‘gift’ by a wise old lady in a

cemetery right before his wedding; a

gift that shows him his next 10 wedding

anniversaries in quick succession,

reminiscent of both ‘Groundhog

Day’ and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’.

Unable to escape the rapid passage

of time, in which he experiences

heartbreak, divorce, fatherhood, and

most importantly, the realisation that

his time is precious – Teddy comes to

realise what is truly important.

Rafe Spall as Teddy brings dry and

sarcastic humour to the film, while

also displaying brilliant chemistry

with his co-star, Zahra Newman, who

portrays his vulnerable – yet fiercely

independent – wife Leanne.

They are joined by Ronny Chieng as

Sam, Teddy’s well-meaning and funny

best friend, and Noni Hazelhurst as

the nameless ‘witch’ who gifts Teddy

with the wake-up call of passing time.

The supernatural aspect of the film

comes across a little cheesy, but this

is made up for with many bright and

poignant moments, and an overall reminder

that time is precious.

Tiguan just gets better

Volkswagen’s best-selling model gets major update for Australian market

NATHAN TAYLOR

Volkswagen Australia’s best-selling

model – the multi-award winning

Tiguan SUV – has received a

major update that enters showrooms

from next month.

With a range of equipment shared with

the Mark 8 Golf, the 110TSI variants of

the new Tiguan range are on sale from

mid-March. The best-selling 162TSI and

the new 147TDI variants arrive in late May

followed in June by the 132TSI.

Adopting the latest Volkswagen design

language, the new Tiguan comes in three

distinct model grades: Life; Elegance; and

the fully-loaded sport-themed R-Line.

The Life grade can be configured as

either a 1.4-litre 110kW/250Nm with frontwheel

drive and six-speed DSG transmission;

or as a 132TSI 4MOTION all-wheel

drive with a seven-speed DSG good for

132kW/320Nm.

In the Elegance and R-Line models,

customers can choose from the

162kW/350Nm petrol variant or the

147kW/400Nm diesel, both versions with

seven-speed DSG and 4MOTION.

The Volkswagen Tiguan SUV.

“With the introduction of new technology

from the new Mark 8 Golf, the 2021

Tiguan is not a mere mid-life upgrade,”

Volkswagen Group Australia Managing

Director, Michael Bartsch said.

“Increasingly Tiguan is the model with

which Volkswagen is becoming synonymous.”

Tech highlights include standard Digital

Cockpit Pro, Touch climate controls and

IQ.DRIVE with a new haptic touch steering

wheel.

Eels look sharp ahead of season

NATHAN TAYLOR

Parramatta will field a near fullstrength

side when they face-off

against old foes Penrith this Saturday

night at Panthers Stadium.

The two teams, who both finished in the

top four last season, will go head-to-head

in their final trial match before the 2021

NRL season gets underway in just over a

fortnight’s time.

The Battle of the West trial is always a

blockbuster, with both sides unable to be

separated in the corresponding fixture last

year in Bega.

Parramatta began their pre-season

campaign in emphatic fashion last week,

dominating their trial against St George

Illawarra with a 28-6 victory.

There was a handful of NRL talent on show

for both sides with the Eels running out most

of their new recruits in Keegan Hipgrave,

Isaiah Papali’i, Tom Opacic and Michael

Oldfield, while the Dragons unveiled former

Broncos teammates Jack Bird and Andrew

McCullough for the first time.

Veteran playmakers Will Smith and Jordan

Rankin steered the ship for Parramatta

while some of their rookie backs – Haze

Dunster, Will Penisini and Sean O’Sullivan

– all looked dangerous throughout the

match.

While newcomer Papali’i was close to best

on ground, it was the experienced Smith

who had his hand in just about everything

for the Eels.

Unfortunately, Parramatta’s 22-point

hammering of Anthony Griffin’s men

was soured by the loss of recruit Michael

Oldfield, who suffered a knee injury.

The Eels later reported that the 30-yearold

winger suffered an MCL sprain and

would be unavailable for the first month of

the season.

Parramatta are expected to name their big

guns for this Saturday night’s trial against

last year’s Grand Finalists with captain

Clint Gutherson, halves Dylan Brown and

Mitchell Moses, and hooker Reed Mahoney

all set to feature.

For Penrith, it will be their first major trial

game of the pre-season with new captains

Nathan Cleary and Isaah Yeo, along with

Viliame Kikau and Dylan Edwards, playing

their first games for the club since October’s

Grand Final defeat.

Penrith and Parramatta will do battle at

Panthers Stadium this Saturday, February

27 at 7.30pm.
