Grove to Table: a Culinary Journey

Coming to Esperance – 20th & 21st September 2024

After the success of our first event in the Off the Beaten Track series, we are heading down to the coastal town of Kepa Kurl (Esperance) to host another uniquely West Australian experience Grove to Table: a Culinary Journey, an outdoor dining event nestled amongst an olive grove.

Explore the natural wonders of Esperance by day, and join us amongst the olive grove by night for an incredible dining experience that showcases native produce from the land of the Esperance Nyungar Peoples. The evening will begin at a tiny cabin, where you’ll be given a glimpse into the off grid, secluded experiences in nature that Heyscape creates across our beautiful state. With September set to be even more beautiful than usual with the wildflower season in full swing, this event is not one to miss for visitors and locals alike.

Heyscape has joined forces with Australia’s Golden Outback alongside The Hike Collective, who will be holding a three day hiking festival to shine a spotlight on Esperance’s hiking trails. Wrap up a day of exploring during the Esperance Hiking Festival with locally inspired dishes, free flowing wine and live music.

This one-off event will be held at Yirri Grove, a husband and wife duo’s olive farm that’s home to award winning olive oil, a farm shop, and restaurant, where a few of our tiny cabins are located. Once again, we will be partnering with Fervor, renowned for a generous approach to their roving dining experience, world-class cuisine and love and respect for native ingredients. Perth jazz singer Catherine Summers and her band will also be joining us, guaranteeing a fabulous night of music under the stars.

More details coming soon.

Off the Beaten Track:
Dine Amongst the Vines

A new and exciting event created to put a spotlight on the lesser known hidden gems across our beautiful backyard. Dine Amongst the Vines is the first of a series of
Off the Beaten Track events across Western Australia hosted by Heyscape whose mission is to unlock unique experiences in unique locations.

With the power of special collaborations, Heyscape has joined forces with the passionate team at Fervor, renowned for their world class cuisine and roving dining experience, and the husband and wife duo at the award-winning Whicher Ridge Wines where you will find the first and only wine sensory garden in Australia!

Join us for a special evening dining in the South West, under the stars and amongst the vines in a unique family owned vineyard that is off the beaten track. An evening where you will get to see a lesser-known side of Busselton, and all that this beautiful location has to offer from touring a tiny cabin, to being greeted by the abundant local wildlife and then being seated amongst the beautiful vines and served dishes that are locally inspired, using ingredients from the sensory garden and paired perfectly with local small-batch vino.

  • Be the first to see the inside of a newly renovated Heyscape cabin
