Have you dined inside the boughs of an ancient fig tree? Or played night croquet with the wildlife before?

LifeTime Private Retreats on Kangaroo Island has created a selection of exotic dining adventures that draws inspiration from our stunning wilderness surroundings, family history and the islands fantastic local produce and wines.

Chef and LifeTime owner Rachel Hannaford will treat you to a casual lunch inside a 100 year old fig tree or prepare a special dinner for you in a shearing shed followed by night croquet after dinner.

With every House & Dining Package at LifeTime Private Retreats, guests can choose *one of the following exclusive dining adventures.


THE ENCHANTED FIG TREE LUNCH.
Step into a childhood fairy tale where you dine underneath the boughs and leaves of an ancient fig tree planted by the early settlers. Over the years the gnarled boughs of the tree have touched the ground to grow again and form enchanting rooms with ceilings of swaying leaves and dappled light. It is here where a private dining table has been set up just for you. Menu features local sheep’s cheeses, honey and of course home cured figs when in season.


SHEARING SHED DINNER (Our private Beach Taverna in the sand can also be used in the summer months.)
For a night of enchanting private dining elegance enjoy the candle lit ambiance and history of our family’s 80-year-old shearing shed. Eclectically decorated with antique furniture and chandeliers, the rustic shed is built from sugar gum trees and old corrugated iron – a true expression of Australian architecture. After a meal featuring island lamb and other treats, guests are invited outside for a spot of night croquet on the lawn – a place where kangaroos and southern stars also come to out to play.

*Weather and time of year dependent; one dining adventure always available.
