The Enchanted Fig Tree //

Once upon a time, a small fig tree was planted as a food source for the first settlers of Kangaroo Island.

Wilderness dining under the magic of a 120 year old fig tree.

Meet Nick.

The Overflow Estate 1895 Cellar Door

The colossal gnarled limbs and shimmering leaves of this 120 year old fig tree have formed an enchanting dining location.

On arrival you will be welcomed by your host with a Kangaroo Islands Spirits cocktail and a selection of canapes. You will then be invited to venture through the leafy entrance of our majestic old fig tree where it will open up into a collection of natural ‘living’ rooms, each decked out with stunning table settings ready for you to experience a magical feast of the senses.
