Kangaroo Island Is Closer Than You Think

If you've always wanted to taste the fabulous wine and cheese from Kangaroo Island, now you can...right here at The Lion.

Kangaroo Island is an iconic Australian destination. On the bucket list of global travellers for its pristine beaches, flora and fauna. The purity of it's offering extends beyond its air, sea and land, to the quality of its drinks and food.
The Kangaroo Island beverage project is an initiative of the Commissioner for KI, who having recognised the quality of what was on offer, was determined to make sure the potential of the island’s industry was realised through increased collaboration, greater distribution and broader promotion.

The local wine industry was established in the late 90's, with cider, beer and spirits following shortly thereafter. Together they are complimented by lamb, honey, seafood, cheese and other fine produce.

A great selection of the island’s finest wine producers will be available for tasting at The Lion on Wednesday 15th March from 5pm to 7pm, along with a selection of unique Kangaroo Island cheese.

Come along to meet the producers and try the results of their passion and commitment and be taken to the Island through the quality and flavour of their wines and cheese.

Islander Estate, False Cape, Bay of Shoals, Hazyblur, Dudley Wines and Stoke Wines will be tasting the a variety of wines along with produce from Island Pure.

The Lion Burger Deal is Back!

Now into it's 20th year, our famous Burger Deal is back!
Kicking off on Australia Day right through to the end of Mad March you can get one of our delicious Lion Burgers and a bottle of Heineken or Heineken 3 from just $19.90.

Our new Kangaroo Island free range pork burger with chilli pineapple, papaya and apple slaw is proving to be quite a hit. And for the burger connoisseur, there's the dry aged wagyu beef burger with iceberg lettuce, pickles, shallots and bacon for $22.90 or you can King Size it by adding an extra pattie for an extra $6.

We haven't forgotten the vegetarians...a mushroom burger with haloumi cheese, fried egg, caramelised onion, Swiss cheese, BBQ sauce and fries will go down a treat.
For the traditionalists, there's still the classic Lion Burger - beef or chicken with cheese, fried egg, bacon, tomato, lettuce, tomato relish, aioli and fries.

If beer really isn't your thing, a glass of Mike Press or Hills Cider will certainly hit the spot.

Hungry?

Available all day every day from Lion Express.
