THE ENCHANTED FIG TREE extends SEASON

SUMMER RAINS & TOURISM INDUSTRY FUNDING SHINES LIGHT ON THE ENCHANTED FIG TREE

 

Press Release: 25th March 2022

Unprecedented heavy summer rains on Kangaroo Island this season have provided an unexpected benefit for Gastronomo’s - The Enchanted Fig Tree dining experience by delaying the enviable shedding of leaves from its awesome fig tree restaurant canopy.

The delay in the dropping of leaves means the Gastronomo dining events team can keep the ‘Figtree’ open for another month, allowing Island visitors and locals to enjoy the magic of dining inside their extraordinary 120-year-old tree for a little longer.
 

“Our restaurant venue is like no other – It needs water and sunlight to operate, and our dining rooms change shape each year due to new growth”
 

Gastronomo owner Nick Hannaford says it’s always a challenge running a restaurant inside a living tree, and although we had to temporarily close down over some rainy summer days, Nick explains it’s a nice surprise to see the tree so lush for this time of year which allows us to continue providing guests with the Figtree magic for some time yet.

Gastronomo, “The Enchanted Fig Tree” is also a recipient of the South Australian Tourism Commission - Tourism Industry Development Funding (TIDF) that has allowed them to invest in a new state of the art mobile commercial kitchen.
 

“With the hospitality industry in turmoil, the SATC Tourism Industry Development Fund has helped us to extend the season and leverage new food and dining opportunities on Kangaroo Island” Nick says.
 

The Enchanted Fig Tree will now remain open until the 2nd May 2022.
