Charting a route of culinary discovery across Kangaroo Island in search of plentiful food and wine hand-picked straight from the source. South Australia’s own much-loved food legend Maggie Beer will star as Safari Leader, interchanging with guest chefs and local food personalities to guide excursions from farm to winery, plenty of feasting in the field and a celebration of the day’s harvest enjoyed around the table at Southern Ocean Lodge.
