We host a relaxed, outdoor communal dining experience set on a long table catering for up to 190 people, in a unique setting.
By bringing together local producers, local ingredients and local chefs, we create a remarkable and uncompromisingly high-quality five course meal with outstanding matching wines.
Featuring fresh local ingredients, such as gourmet tomatoes, grass-fed beef and organic free range chicken, we bring our plates to the places where the food is grown… be it a farm, garden, mountain range or winery.
We bring our plates to the places where the food is found – in the rolling green hills of an organic beef farm, between vine rows and fruit trees, or overlooking Australia’s most vibrant fisheries.
Great local chefs use their talents and passion for fine food, to showcase delicious ingredients in a five course dining experience.
Our selected menus feature local, fresh and seasonal vegetables, fruits and herbs that complement each other to showcase regional influences and dining specialties.
We select wines and craft beers from across Australia and - wherever we can - from the local area that we're visiting, to complement our dishes and enhance your relaxed dining experience.
