We chose the flames of the forest as a special treat for our honeymoon. This is just such an experience, travel by bus to the secret rainforest location. The aboriginal show and story was great. But the food was just in huge proportions. Kangaroo, fig jam, prawns it was just so special.

A night to remember, mouthwatering cuisine, cultural story telling and didgeridoo playing, with rainforest trees dressed with mystical lights. Definitely recommended the Ancient Culture night.

We chose to take this evening out as it was well reviewed and we are so glad we did. You need to book ahead as its not that large, and the only way to get there is by their pick-up service which was spot on. Not that far out of Port Douglas but a different world when you get there.... More

A very private, romantic and glamorous venue for a wedding. Food was delicious, the service was attentive but not intrusive. Could not fault the whole experience.

I had looked forward to seeing this, and was totally knocked out with the whole experience. I loved the lighting and entry, and fabulous wines served with a happy smile. When we were seated for dinner we were a little dismayed to be so far from the stage BUT during the performance the two story tellers came to our end,... More

We went to the Saturday night flames of the forest for our 16th anniversary it was a totally amazing experience the food was to die for and the drinks just kept flowing and the staff was there if you needed anything with stu playing music in the back ground it was worth every cent. This is a must do :-)
