If munching prawns and sipping Pimms on the beach sounds like something you’d be interested in, we’re here to tell you you’re in luck.
The owners of North Beach Kitchen in Wallaroo are combining the two summer favourites with the launch of a new food and beverage event, the “Yorke Peninsula King Prawn Carnivale”.
Located on the most accessible beach of the Yorke Peninsula, this all-ages event will occur over Saturday February 29 and Sunday March 1 and will bring visitors the freshest local Spencer Gulf prawns direct from the sea and into your stomach (yes, you’re correct in thinking it doesn’t get much better than that).
Spencer Gulf King Prawns say they are delighted to partner up with North Beach Kitchen for the upcoming festival, highlighting how proud the fishermen are of the Spencer Gulf and their fishery.
“They [Spencer Gulf fisherman] are excited to support a local event that will be providing the product adjacent to its source, and so locals and visitors have an opportunity to learn about the product”.
There will be a variety of prawn dishes up for grabs, where you can expect to choose from either indulging in fresh prawns, a King Prawn banh mi roll (we’re drooling) or wok tossed prawns. There will also be an option for the kids.
Acoustic entertainment will add to the atmosphere, as will the Pimm’s pop up bar set up on the beach, providing the ultimate beachfront festival vibe.
Director of North Beach Kitchen, Matt Hawson, says the aim is to capture the true essence of a Prawn feast, during which “newspaper lined tables and finger bowls create the ‘hands-on’ spirit of a true prawn cook up”.
The Yorke Peninsula King Prawn Carnivale will be held at the North Beach Kitchen in Wallaroo on Saturday February 29 and Sunday March 1.
