SeaLink Kangaroo Island has partnered with Kangaroo Island dining experience designer Gastronomo to launch its new spring wilderness event, The Feast, Kangaroo Island, from next month.
The Feast is a progressive dining adventure inspired by the stars and designed to connect diners to the spirit of a magical location through its local produce, storytelling, a hint of theatre and a touch of the unexpected.
Surrounded by flickering candlelight and in a secret venue hand-crafted by old sugar gum trees and corrugated iron, the evening's feast explores historic cooking techniques that engage the palate with tastes and flavours inspired from land and sea. The culmination is a superb feast cooked over a fire on coals.
The experience, which includes a Kangaroo Island Spirit welcome cocktail, costs $145 pp. It is available from October 14-November 1, and November 11-29 every Thursday to Monday from 7.30-10.15pm.
SeaLink is the exclusive transport partner and will be providing return shared coach transfers from Kingscote and Penneshaw on October 16, 23 and 30, and November 13, 20 and 27. Return coach transfers departing KI Seafront Hotel are $70 per person and transfers departing Aurora Ozone Hotel are $60 per person. Private return transfers are also available.
SeaLink is also offering a two-day/one-night Kangaroo Island & The Feast Weekend Escape Self Drive Package priced from $533.50 per person, twin share.
The package includes return SeaLink Kangaroo Island passenger and standard vehicle ferry transfers from Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island, dinner at The Feast with return shared coach transfers and one night's accommodation at the Aurora Ozone Hotel in an executive sea view room.
Other accommodation options include Kangaroo Island Seafront Hotel in a seafront room or at Kangaroo Island Shores Holiday Park in an eco-luxury tent (prices will vary).
Gastronomo has another popular dining experience, Enchanted Fig Tree, where guests will dine amid the dappled light of a 100-year-old fig tree.
Over the four-month season, guests will begin their culinary experience with a welcome Spirit Gin cocktail beside the mulberry tree or in the property's rustic shearing shed, before dining under the gnarled limbs and of fig tree.
Inspired by fig mythology, the island location, sea, land and earth, head chef Stephanie Vass has handcrafted a special six-course menu that includes a splash of fairy tale!
