Enchanted Magic -it's time to dine inside an extraordinary living tree restaurant


South Australia has a secret, and there’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world…The Enchanted Fig Tree on Kangaroo Island opens its limbs today.

Wilderness dining event specialists, Gastronomo Dining are delighted to announce that The Enchanted Fig Tree has opened again this summer, despite all the challenges of the Pandemic!

Visitors to the island will continue to be treated to magical sun-dappled lunches and starlight dinners set inside an ancient living fig tree that is over 130 years old.

Like stepping into the pages of Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree, The Enchanted Fig Tree dining is nothing short of extraordinary. The experience takes guests on a culinary adventure that extends far beyond the tantalising dishes served to private tables set out within the fig trees 25-metre-wide canopy.

Without giving too much away, guests will be treated to a selection of progressive courses and tastes served in private dining grottos that have been naturally created by the fig tree's gnarled limbs and canopy over time. Diners can expect a hint of local history, a splash of fairy tale, and a sprinkle of the unexpected!

This year Gastronomo director Nick Hannaford has teamed up with his talented sister and Chef Rachel Hannaford who’s very diverse career includes cooking for celebrities such as Mick Jagger and The Dali Lama.

Rachel will be showcasing some of her favourite culinary flavours from the Mediterranean, artfully blending them with some of Kangaroo Islands best produce and local foraged foods collected right from the shores of Snelling Beach where the fig tree grows.


The Enchanted Fig Tree open for lunches on the 16th December 2021 - 4 April 2022 and open for dinners each Friday and Sunday nights from the 6th January – 6 th March.

The Enchanted Fig Tree is open for bookings now at
