Kangaroo Island’s Feastival
Now, this very instant, is the time to start gearing up for the Kangaroo Island Sealink Seafood Feastival (April 28 – May 2) to savour the plenty from the tables of one of the most pristine environments on Earth.
This is not a festival – it’s a six-day island feast that celebrates fine seafood, local produce, location and conversation on one of Australia’s most iconic islands – Kangaroo Island in South Australia.
The event will rollout at a collection of idyllic seaside settings around the island, visitors will be lured by fine dining tasting menus, campfire cooking and a rustic/no fuss all-day seafood barbeque by the island’s wharf at Kingscote – all matched with the best of Kangaroo Island wines. Other dining events include masterclass demonstrations and exclusive dinners with celebrity chefs such as Pete Evans from My Kitchen Rules and Simon Bryant from The Cook and the Chef.
If you’re expecting the usual food and wine tasting stalls with tasting plates, this Feastival is going to surprise you.
If you’re looking for adventure, love eating outdoors, are willing to try new flavours, and you love seafood (of course) then you had better book your space now.
The indigenous lunch Wirritjin – introduces guests to the Ramindjeri people who were the original guardians over Kangaroo Island when it was still attached to the mainland. Take the rare opportunity to dine at Southern Ocean Lodge for a fine dining 'produce to plate' approach menu that is the passion of Chef Tim Bourke. Join Simon Bryant as he prepares an exciting dinner menu inspired by the underdog fish that the master-chefs usually snub, turning them into culinary masterpieces.
Be entertained by talented soprano and baritone singers from Pot-Pourri and be enchanted by the sweet song of Lucinda (who spent time under the tutelage of Australian jazz legend Don Burrows) as she sings with her double bass.
Tickets on sale through Ticketek.
