We stayed at The Heritage Lodge for 5 night and for four of those we dined at the in house restaurant On the turps. I can't begin to explain the most magnificent setting for a restaurant I have seen anywhere. Nestled high overlooking Coopers creek which itself is an amaxing blue colour, I was told that this was because of the different minerals bought down from the mountains. The restaurant is open air and brings the rainforest right into your dinning experience. Tastefuly decorated with 'real' tablecloths and glowing candles everywhere, the scene is set for for a very romantic intimate dinner.
You must try the Crocodile dim sims for an entree' we ate these everynight , they were exquisite. During our stay we had Barramundi, Rib eye, Lamb Madras and a Kangaroo dish, and everynight we were certainly not disapointed. For desert we had the white chocolate mud cake. Rum and raison dish and a mango cheesecake. All were soo srumptious. Anika and Vicki were our waitresses and we very imformative and knew the area well and were able to orgsnise some of our tours. Accolades to On the tups chef for his wonderful food. We live in Cairns and will be back
