06 May 2024


Lizard Island Resort, the northernmost jewel of the Great Barrier Reef, announces a resplendent long weekend of Champagne and caviar this June.

Amidst the luxuriant allure of pristine white sands and azure waters, the island has orchestrated a sumptuous convergence of world-renowned Champagne Lallier from France’s esteemed Aÿ region and Australia’s premier caviar producer, Yarra Valley Caviar.

From June 28 to 30, Lizard Island will become a sanctuary of gastronomic indulgence. Guests will have the privilege of attending masterclasses, tastings, and extended dining experiences that promise not only to satiate palates but also to enlighten minds.

Each event is crafted to showcase the century-old vintages of Champagne Lallier alongside sustainably sourced caviar from the Yarra Valley’s only freshwater salmon farm, renowned for its commitment to premium quality.


Adding an artistic touch to the gourmet weekend, a special collaboration with The McCorry Collection invites guests to engage in crafting exquisite ceramic centrepieces, enhancing the aesthetic and sophistication of the dining experience.

The weekend features three meticulously curated events:

    • Champagne and Caviar Masterclass: Dive deep into the art of pairing, exploring the refined complexities of Lallier Champagne and Yarra Valley Caviar.
    • Champagne Dinner: A sensorial dinner that pairs the best of Lallier with artisanal ingredients, each course narrating a piece of Lizard Island’s unique story.
    • Casual Canapés & Champagne: In the gentle glow of the afternoon sun, relax by Anchor Bay with canapés and Champagne, the ocean’s breeze complementing the elegant effervescence of Lallier.

Mark Leslie, General Manager of Lizard Island, expressed his enthusiasm about uniting these two artisanal culinary giants in one splendid weekend.

“Both Lallier Champagne and Yarra Valley Caviar exemplify the pinnacle of small-scale, sustainable production, creating a tasting experience that is not only superior but profoundly enjoyable,” said Leslie.

For those wishing to partake in this luxurious escapade, reservations can be made by contacting the Lizard Island Reservations Team. This is more than a getaway; it’s an immersive journey into luxury, sustainability, and the exquisite harmony of flavours that only such a prestigious pairing can provide.
