Help save the northern hairy-nosed wombat and enjoy a long table experience

People, Plates and Places invite you to a special dinner on Saturday May 12 at 3pm to benefit The Wombat Foundation, which is working to save the northern hairy-nosed wombat from imminent extinction. It is one of the world’s most critically endangered species and Queensland’s most endangered mammal – we only have 250 left in the world. Time is running out.

The dinner will be held at a beautiful and very private Montville property, situated on the border of Kondalilla National Park and blessed with spectacular views through the Obi Obi Valley. Trustworthy sources of fresh, local and seasonal produce will provide the essential ingredients for the five dining courses, each paired with quality wines. It’ll be a memorable experience.

Montville’s late autumn weather is a pleasant 14 – 24 °C with little wind or rain, but please bring a light jacket or sweater for the early evening.

Tickets are $200 per person, including a five course meal and paired wines. The Guest chef is Sean Heyward of Parliament House, Spicers Retreat, Elements of Byron, with featured producer to be announced shortly!

People, Plates and Places are known for hosting a relaxed, outdoor communal dining experience set on a long table catering for up to 190 people, in a unique setting. You could nestled in a garden, perched on a mountain range or reclining in the vineyards of a winery.

They bring together local producers, local ingredients and local chefs, to create memorable and  high-quality five-course meals with superb matching wines.

Anything could be on the menu, from grass-fed beef and organic free-range chicken, to gourmet tomatoes and sweet mangoes – the plates are brought to the places where the food is grown for this sensory and unique experience.

This event is produced to benefit The Wombat Foundation and in association with the Chemical Free Farmers Association.
