The moment that enchants us - The Enchanted Fig Tree dining experience

120 years after a small fig tree sapling was planted as a food source for the first settlers of Kangaroo Island, it is now home to one of the world’s unparalleled dining experiences.

For those who like a touch of the “magical”, Gastronomo’s Enchanted Fig Tree rekindles the spirit of wonder under its gnarled limbs and glistening leaves. Located on the North Coast Road of Middle River on Kangaroo Island, The Enchanted Fig Tree offers a restaurant venue unlike any other in the world.

A unique experience

Your dining adventure commences with a cocktail from Kangaroo Island Spirits, renowned for foraging local botanicals to create their 'Wild Gin' which is distilled uniquely with 'Boobialla', Kangaroo Island's native juniper. This is paired with delightful canapés in a picturesque, age-old shearing shed, where the history of the Hannaford family and the fig tree unfolds.

The Enchanted Fig Tree Cocktails


After a short stroll to the tree, The Enchanted Fig Tree invites you to enter its realm. It gives you a feeling like you are about to be transported to a different world.

The Enchanted Fig Tree stroll


The pathway meanders throughout the leafy boughs of the tree where you will be led to your table inside a collection of natural 'living rooms'. The canopy penetrated by dappled sunlight provides the perfect intimate setting for a magical feast of the senses, inspired by the landscape, local culture and history.

The Enchanted Fig Tree table


Each year, the Gastronomo team collaborates with different renowned chefs to inspire a menu that matches the magic of both Kangaroo Island and the venue. A celebration of the spirit of Kangaroo Island and South Australian produce, you are treated to a multi-course immersive dining experience, leaving an enduring mark on your palette.
