Flames of the Forest

Experience an evening in the Enchanted Rainforest!

Light the flame of the forest…ignite your senses as you walk along a flame lit trail beneath the canopy of the oldest rainforest in the world.

Feel the wonder of this legendary place and explore the mysteries of time, culture and cuisine in the spellbinding candlelit drama that is the enchanted forest.

This evening of dining and entertainment in the middle of the rainforest is a unique and unforgettable experience. The cuisine is exotic, the entertainment while dining portrays aspects of aboriginal culture as well as talent from New Australia. This is a one of a kind rainforest experience in Australia that will become a lifetime memory. Ideal for travellers as well as corporate incentive groups. The venue is conveniently located by Port Douglas – the gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, two World Heritage listed areas side by side!

Touring Options

Flames of the Forest

Guests are picked up in Cairns Palm Cove and Port Douglas by air conditioned coaches arriving at the site by 7.30 p.m. Guests are handed a lighted candle which helps light their way along a flame lit trail to clear space underneath the canopy of the rainforest. Guests are greeted by waiters serving champagne and hors d’oeuvres while placing their candle in a candelabra to provide a soft flickering light.

Then the master of ceremonies guides the guests to the dining area a short stroll away. Guests sit down to dine on an innovative feast of exotic tastes amid the surrounding rainforest, the limbs of trees reaching across their heads as a mountain river rushes by!
