With a touch of romance, local flavours and a magical location amongst the stars – The Enchanted Fig Tree extends its Starlit dining on Kangaroo Island

From the 4th February 2023, visiting chef Alana Brabin will be heading up the Enchanted Fig Tree kitchen and revealing her menu for the second half of the season’s menu as she extends the popular Starlit dinners from January, through to the 11th March 2023.

Inspired by the southern stars and colours of the universe, the Starlit dinners start with canapes and a welcome cocktail in a secret location before guests are led down a winding path to a small opening in the Enchanted Fig Tree, just before dusk.

Inside the trees awesome canopy, a selection of tasting courses is revealed as the tiny bud lights and candles provide the flickering light to dine…

As the last sweet taste is served for dessert, the tree and surrounds are lit up with a garden of light, colour and a thousand stars.

The extended Starlit dinner dates are as follows:

• January 2023: Every Friday and Saturday nights

• February through to 11th March 2023 – every Saturday night
