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.

Was at the Flames of the Forest recently in July 2016 and what an experience. Being among a small group makes the evening very intimate and a privilege to be a part of. We arrived with a flaming road to mark the spot, the place was pitch black aside from lights hanging from the trees, the place was like Avatar... More

A truelly amazing setting and a cultural experience, however as it is a pickup only from resort, if people are late, your time is limited to only 3 hours. Not long for the sumptuous food to enjoy leisurely. We were booked to be picked up at 7.05, and weren't until 7.40, thanks to other inconsiderate participants earlier. On arrival the... More

Dear dunnsk60, We were sorry to read your experience did not live up to expectations. It can be most frustrating when other guests are late, however we do try to make up the time by extending the night out past the standard finishing time. Our performers are also guides at the Mossman Gorge, so they like to ensure they present... More
