The CWA turns 100 – There will be scones!

Within 24 hours of its establishment on April 20, 1922, Country Women’s Association (CWA) members began lobbying relevant government ministers for better services for women and children, and that has been their mission ever since.  

It all started with a simple dream, to convert its original farmhouse in Ewingsdale into a restaurant in which its guests could gather to share in their collective passion for local seasonal produce and the beauty of the ‘dining experience’. 40 years on, and here Fig Tree is today, one the longest-established fine dining restaurants in the country, celebrating four decades of ‘cooking & serving’ in this bountiful region that is Byron Shire.

From the gardeners who harvest their produce each morning in their onsite garden, to their chefs who design and curate their menus, to the front of house staff who deliver an unparalleled and sophisticated service, this passionate team of individuals continually explore, create and innovate in ways that honour their ‘garden to table’ ethos.

Whilst utilising the incredible produce from the local suppliers in this community, it is this same sustainable food philosophy that has held Fig Tree as the leaders of their industry since they first opened their doors to the public in 1981, long before it was fashionable to do so!

Over the month of July, Fig Tree Restaurant celebrates this milestone achievement and invites you to join them at their table for what will be an exquisite dining series, as they pay homage to their ‘Dishes through the Decades’.

From vol au vent with smoked salmon mousse, to beef Wellington with local mushrooms and prosciutto, to Grand Marnier chocolate mousse with raspberry coulis, their chefs have meticulously selected standout dishes from the Fig Tree Kitchen Cookbook, to curate an unforgettable menu that is both transportive and transcendental!

Words simply don’t do Fig Tree Restaurant justice. It’s something you just have to experience for yourself. This will be an unforgettable dining experience that you do not want to miss!
