Owner description: 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.

I cannot recommend this highly enough! Loved everything about it, the secret location, the setting, the food, wine, the entire experience was fantastic. Yes, it's expensive, but so totally worth it. Loved the Aboriginal Cultural Experience, loved everything about it. Will be back with my husband soon!!!

This place took my breath away & I will never forget this night EVER it was the best 30th birthday present I could have wished for! Absolutely stunning surroundings, amazing music and great stories by the Creek Family not to mention scrumptious food and delicious wine! I am gluten and dairy intolerant and the staff were well prepared and provided advice on each of the meal options that were delivered to the table or gave me a separate plate. For once I didn't feel like the odd one out, I actually felt special. Definitely an experience to add to your holiday "must do" list when visiting FNQ. I assure you it's worth every penny!!!

Dear GOCALM,

Another 'must do' thank you so much! Delighted your dietary requirements were well catered for and that you enjoyed what the kitchen prepared for you together with the wine.

What a wonderful way to celebrate your 30th birthday - we are so pleased you had such a memorable time on your special night!

We visited Flames of the Forest on the first night of our honeymoon.
My husband called ahead to confirm and advised of dietary requirements which was that I don't eat red meats. On the evening I was still given meat dishes and when I mentioned we had spoken to the office regarding this the waitress was nothing less than rude. After this I was sent out deep fried vegetable fritters and a vegetable fritatta which were nothing to write home about.
We had to keep asking for our wine to be refilled throughout the evening and the 2 waitress's gave the impression we were just an inconvenience.
Not a great start to our honeymoon!
Disappointing when the ambience and music was really incredible!

Dear Winer_and_Diner1,

Congratulations on your recent marriage and we are delighted you enjoyed the ambiance and music on our Saturday evening!

I understand how it can be disappointing when you have a dietary requirement - I am both gluten and dairy intolerant so I, like you, always reconfirm! We have followed up with the office and the kitchen regarding this as it can really make or break an evening. I was most surprised to read your comments about our staff - it is certainly unusual. As this is an anonymous forum, we are unsure when you travelled. Should you be in a position to email us directly with the date of travel, we will be certain to follow this up as one of the things we normally receive feedback on is how wonderful and accommodating our staff are.
