Lizard Island’s inaugural food and wine event

Following a gorgeous renovation, Lizard Island resort is launching their inaugural Food and Wine Event this May, promising a luxurious experience unlike no other.

Situated off the coast of Tropical North Queensland, the resort's four-day event will showcase local suppliers and produce, culinary events, indulgent spa experiences and a total immersion into the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.

Lizard Island's executive chef Mark Jensen, celebrated American seafood chef Rick Moonen and accredited Australian Master Chef Markus Werner will host interactive cooking classes as well as dinners each evening.

On the final night, guests will be treated to a degustation dinner designed and prepared by all three chefs matched with classic Australian Wines selected by Lizard Island's wine consultant Jeremy Oliver.

More casual dining experiences will include a welcome lunch featuring an extravagant display of chilled seafood from the waters of Tropical North Queensland and sunset welcome drinks in the cabana on the sands of Anchor Bay.

You'll be able to enjoy all the usual array of recreational activities available on the island, such as snorkelling at the Giant Clam Gardens in Anchor Bay, paddle boarding and seeing turtles at Blue Lagoon.

Held from May 17-21, Lizard Island's Food and Wine Event is inclusive of four night's accommodation, all master classes, dining, lifestyle activities and air transfers to and from Lizard Island from Cairns. Packages commence from $10,856 per couple.  lizardisland.com.au/foodandwine
