Hosted in the stunning Lume gallery, Feast For The Senses pairs massive moving works of art with native Australian flavours.

Since its inception only two years ago, The Lume has rapidly gained a reputation for creating mesmerizing moments. Featuring gigantic screens displaying digital art and a specially-designed sound system that blasts curated audio through the halls, The Lume takes immersive art to the next level.

Now, visitors can elevate their experience by taking part in an unforgettable dining experience. The on-site restaurant Mirri will be hosting a three-course meal within the gallery itself as a part of the ongoing Connection exhibition.

The groundbreaking showcase, which opened in late June, brings together the world’s largest-ever collection of First Peoples’ art. Featuring videography, photography, visual art, music and storytelling, it displays the culture and creativity of Australia’s indigenous communities.

The gallery has been experimenting with unique viewing experiences including hosting yoga and pilates classes inside the exhibition. Their latest venture is an immersive dining experience titled Feast for the Senses.

Whether you’re looking to pull out all the stops for an intimate date night or you just want to spend dedicated, uninterrupted time admiring the art, it’s an easy choice. Prepared by Bundjalung chef Mark Olive, the menu is meant to enhance the viewing experience and is centred around ingredients that are native to Australia. For some, it may be the first time they’ve tasted the flavours of their own backyard.

Tables can be reserved in sets of two. We suggest getting in early so you don’t miss out. To learn more and secure a spot, head here.
