SeaLink Kangaroo Island has partnered with Kangaroo Island dining experience designer, Gastronomo, to launch their new spring wilderness dining experience - The Feast Kangaroo Island - this October.

The popular Enchanted Fig Tree meanwhile will also be open again from December to April 2022.

The Feast Kangaroo Island is a progressive dining adventure inspired by the stars and designed to connect diners to the spirit and essence 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 progressive feast explores historic cooking techniques that leave the palate experiencing different tastes and flavours inspired from the land and sea and cooked over a fire and on coals.

The Feast Dinner experience includes a Kangaroo Island Spirit welcome cocktail and a progressive dinner for $145 per person.

The Feast is available from October 14 to November 1 and then from November 11-29 every Thursday to Monday.

SeaLink is the exclusive transport partner and will be providing return shared coach transfers from Kingscote and Penneshaw on certain days.

SeaLink is also offering The Feast Weekend Escape Self Drive packages.

Over Gastronomo's four-month season, guests will begin their culinary experience with a welcome cocktail beside the Mulberry Tree or in the property's rustic shearing shed, before dining under the gnarled limbs and sun-dappled chambers of 100-year-old Enchanted 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 hint of local history, a splash of fairy tale, and a sprinkle of the unexpected!

Lunch or dinner at The Enchanted Fig Tree is $155 per person including a welcome Kangaroo Island Spirit Gin cocktail.

There is also going to be a Christmas Day Lunch at The Enchanted Fig Tree, which is also open on Boxing Day and over New Year's.

SeaLink is the exclusive transport partner and can provide private and small to large group transfers to and from Kangaroo Island accommodation to The Enchanted Fig Tree, located in the remote Middle River on the north coast of the island.

Gastronomo is the creation of IslanderNick Hannaford, whocomes from a special events and hospitality background, starting out at Jolley's boathouse Bistro in the 1980's working for his mother Belinda Hannaford.
