Marron – the Island’s prized freshwater crayfish – doesn’t come any fresher than from Andermel.
Visitors can view marron up close in the holding tanks with all the experience of seeing the range of sizes even some juveniles (babies) at times, blue marron and if you’re lucky enough to see one out of water the need to keep clear of the claws that can give a bit of a nip.
They are the main attraction in the Marron Café with an enticing range of marron menu options as well as steak, chicken and other dishes plus ‘specials’.
Bush Tucker herbs, such as lemon myrtle, grown on the property are used in many meals and with marron provide that exclusive Australian experience and flavour.
Of course such meals aren’t complete without a fine wine and none better than from grapes grown on the farm produced under the award winning Two Wheeler Creek label.
Diners can choose from a sparkling chardonnay, sparkling cabernet/shiraz, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz.
Extra delights are the Bush Tucker sauces available for sale and the delicious lemon myrtle liqueur.
It’s without a doubt a complete food and wine experience that captures much that is very special about KangarooIsland.
For those visitors who want to prolong the experiences and flavours, farm gate marron and cellar door wine sales are available either for immediate take away or for post / shipment elsewhere in Australia.
