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.

On arrival we we're welcomed by the amazing staff, fire lit road and fairy lit trees; just magical. Canapés, bubbly, then came the 7 courses! Wine and beer. This is a great night to chat to others,... 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

Our family of 6 (including 2 teenagers) LOVED this special dining experience. The location and set up is stunningly beautiful and first-class all the way. The food was plentiful and delicious and the staff attentive, friendly and professional. We LOVED the aboriginal entertainment and story time, just wish they told more stories during dinner.

Disappointed we didn't do this sooner! Service was outstanding. Food was yummy. The place is stunning, like nothing we have seen before. 10 minutes max out of Port Douglas. Totally work every dollar. Thank you for a great night, something will remember forever.

Having not been to sport Douglas before I was unsure as to what to expect from this evening. It's a little pricey by Port Dpuglas standards however considering they will pick you up from your Hotel in PD, Palm Cove or Cairns to transport you to the venue, provide champagne and canapés on arrival and provide high quality food throughout...

Hi rjk1975, Great to read you felt the night was value for money! It's nice for everyone not to have to drive after the evening - a relaxing way to finish. I will pass on your lovely comments to our Indigenous performers - their history and culture is truly engaging and we are delighted you were taken away! More

To start off I would like to mention the positives... The atmosphere which is why this place is famous is lovely. The entry, service (on the most part) and solo performer singing all night was majestic. But as the positives go that's about where I'm going to stop. The menu and the whole reason why you come to have dinner... More
