RISING: The Lighthouse

Food and Wine

1 Jun 2022 to 19 Jun 2022 Annual Event

Floating above the The Wilds biosphere is the sparkling glasshouse bistro, The Lighthouse—an intimate, plant-filled, 70-seat dining room celebrating the sustenance the earth, fields and oceans provide.

The Lighthouse is RISING’s headline fine-dining experience, led by acclaimed chef David Moyle—you know him from Franklin and Longsong (and as The Saturday Paper food editor). This year he’s joined by Jo Barrett and Matt Stone (futurefoodsystem, formerly Oakridge Wines), whose cooking mission is to find a viable future for the land’s bounty.

Over a multi-course procession of dishes, the trio elevate overlooked ingredients into luxurious forms with a joyous feast honouring the integrated food systems that sustain us all. Ferments, ocean treasures, freshest-of-the-fresh vegetables and a glorious wood-fired rotisserie await.

And for full palate synthesis, Blackhearts & Sparrows founder Jess Ghaie matches wines, from underground producers—rarely-seen drops teeming with effervescent acids, textural sugars and tannins. Finish your meal with a cocktail or nightcap on the deck, overlooking The Wilds’ fluoro fantasy.

Bookings at The Lighthouse are limited and essential. Tickets include a four-course set menu (omnivore or vegan) and entry to The Wilds; drinks are extra.
