Description: Flames of the Forest transports you into a world beyond your imagination...
Flames of the Forest transports you into a world beyond your imagination so relaxing and uplifting you will never want to leave. A completely intimate, natural experience set within the candle lit rainforest under a black silk canopy highlighted by crystal and budlight chandeliers, Flames of the Forest will create an unforgettable memory at an extraordinary venue. Tuesday and Thursday nights feature two local Aboriginal brothers sharing their remarkable culture with you during the evening. The performance features a cultural background, story telling, didgeridoo playing and song. The rainforest is the natural, authentic backdrop for this spiritual and mystical culture, a performance unique to Flames of the Forest, where you will learn about their timeless oral traditions. Saturday night is for the romantic at heart in this magical place. This intimate evening features a six course tropical tasting menu and quality Australian wines whilst being serenaded by our solo acoustic guitarist. Perfect for honeymooners, small wedding receptions and those seeking a unique dining experience, Flames of the Forest is truly food for the soul.

Dear naths7774, Thank you for such a heartfelt review! Our Head Chef was a bit shy when I told him you thought his food was 'breathtaking' - but I know he was secretly chuffed!

I went to Flames of the Forest on my own as I am a backpacker who splashed out - no other backpackers could afford to come with me.

We attended a wedding here. The atmosphere was brilliant, the food was the best I've ever tasted! If you go in the winter, however, make sure you wear long pants and a jumper as it can get cold at night.

I very much enjoyed this experience and could not recommend enough. Magnificent food, wonderful ambience, and an almost magical presentation. I am sure it would be a great experience for couples however I travelled alone and the group seating arrangements enable me to enjoy the company of others. The 'performance' by the 2 aboriginal men was fascinating. They told us... More
