About
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.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I am so glad that I chose to ignore the negative comments about this experience. From the time of collection to the time I was dropped off I had the most amazing experience.

I chose to do the aboriginal dining experience and I was not disappointed. The food was incredible the service was amazing and the venue was mystical. From the flame lit pathways to the haunting sounds of the rain forest it was just incredible.

It was a great experience from the beginning. Great music, beautiful/romantic atmosphere.
Only thing negative about the whole experience was a few of the five course meal. The Lamb and the fish were overcooked, tough and dry. The prawn tortellini was a bit too salty.

Still I'd recommend it.

Very well organised evening out. From collection at our hotel to the storytelling to the food. We were in the middle of the forest and the peace surrounding us was magical. The selection and the amount of food was fantastic, well presented and well cooked.
Definitely would recommend this evening out.

The whole evening was very enjoyable which included very good Dreamtime story telling accompanied with Digeridoo to add atmosphere. The food was excellent and plentiful and included the best kangaroo we have ever been served. The setting of the forest and flames with very good service from great staff added to a wonderful evening spent with other travelers from across the globe. Who also shared their own stories over the evening meal. An experience we are very happy to recommend to others.

The whole evening was excellent from the setting in the rainforest with twinkle lights, torches and chandeliers, to the delicious food and entertainment. Very organized event and the wine kept flowing. I would book this again!

Awesome experience! After a little confusion our end - wanting the aboriginal experience but saturday being our only option - we initially settled for the romantic dinner. Meh. :-D However, minutes later, the most amazing and super friendly nikki from reservations rang me back with the good news of spots opening up for the night (thursday), which was the story telling dinner experience. WIN. Cultural charme and humourous atmosphere from the start. The lights/flames and ambience of the canopy left an impression the moment you entered. The food and table service - flawless! Probably THE most relaxing time i have spent under the stars and the canopy of the tropical north queensland bush. Transport service included - which leaves you in peace of mind about a glass of the superior wines too many. Well done team, cant fault this experience. Just wish i had brought a cigar for the end of the night. ;-)
Last one to mention: even in the heat of the hour and a probably less relaxing job as a waitress (i am soo sorry i forgot her name, even after asking her name that night), our waitress took the time to go and search for a phone that had fallen out of our pockets during the walking between welcome drinks and dinner tables. Big thank you!
Highly recommend!

The setting and food were excellent!
The very long talk from the host (indigenous person) got a little boring after a while

We booked the Flames of the Forest having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor. It was a great evening with lovely food and very attentive staff. The live acoustic music was also a great addition to the evening. Although quite pricey, we both enjoyed ourselves and believe that you have to splash out when you're on holiday to make those special moments - so I would recommend this as an evening out if you're based around Port Douglas
