Kangaroo Island Sealink Seafood Feastival


No, this is not a misprint.  

This is not a festival - it's a six-day island feast from April 27th - 2nd May 2012 that celebrates fine seafood, local produce, location and conversation on one of Australia's most iconic Islands - Kangaroo Island in South Australia.

It's an Island affair: SIX days, NINE dining events

Located 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 master class 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's gonna 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.

Over the six days of celebration, the island, locals and the very best food and wine producers host an eclectic offering of intimate dining events that are not usually available to the public.

The indigenous lunch Wirritjin - Black Fella White Fella Dreaming Together introduces guests to the Ramindjeri people who were the original guardians over Kangaroo Island when it was still attached to the mainland. Join Kano Walker for a possum-tasting like they did at the first Christmas dinner during the settlement and the meeting of Mathew Flinders.

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 the Give Me Sh*T Fish Any Day Dinner With Simon Bryant where 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 Don Burrows trained Lucinda as she sings with her double bass.

Tickets on sale from through Tickatek from Friday, 3rd February.
