First we take you into the wild to Joadja Old Town for remote dining at its finest amongst the ruins of our mining past. There is of course a WILDfest twist as gentleman will be given top hats and tails whilst the ladies are offered gloves and tiaras as they enter our specially designed native bush wonderland. And under the stars on International Earth Day guests will enjoy a 7 course food adventure carefully curated by Damien Monley of Grand Bistro, Bowral, from the natural bounty of our land.

Damien Monley is Head Chef and owner-operator of Bowral's stylish Grand Bistro, has run the kitchen in Matt Moran's eponymous 2-hatted restaurant, London's internationally renowned Gastropub The White Horse on Parsons Green, the Brooklyn Hotel and has been owner-operator of two successful Sydney eateries, Madame Char Char at Surry Hills and Flat White Cafe, Woollahra.

Damien's a man passionate about nature, the provenance of the ingredients and produce he uses, his relationship with local suppliers, and a belief in the joy of eating honest, rustic food.

When he's not in the kitchen, he and his foodie wife and partner in business, Justine, are running around after their four young children. And his days now start a little differently to that of his boyhood when he followed his Mum, foraging for fresh ingredients to use in the kitchen of the family's restaurant in Wanaka, New Zealand. These days it starts with meditation, a calming way to focus his day and a practise that exemplifies his philosophy that connects nature and the earth to the idea that food is the perfect medium for bringing people together.

No remote formal dinner is complete without an acoustic live performance under the milky way, so get ready for that Leonard Cohen inspired moment woven in between courses.
