Description:

Flames of the Forest transports you into a world beyond your imagination so...

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.

The shuttle from the Sheraton Mirage picked us up just a few minutes passed the appointed time and took us to the venue. The walk to the dining area is dimly lit with some string lights and torches.

We were blown away by this amazing setting together with fantastic food and wines but most and foremost the welcome, the story telling and the music by two aboriginals. It is definitely a most inspiring and unforgettable night

We enjoyed the whole evening. The food was amazing. The music and story telling was very enjoyable. The man talking told us about the musical instruments and about the platypus. Perfect weather for dinner outside too.

This was a truly enjoyable experience. I have my wife a surprise by taking her here. I didn't tell her anything. Based on the bus title she started working the details out. She couldn't have been more wrong and was pleasantly surprised when we got there. The venue was great and the setting was beautiful. My only gripe is the... More

Stunning. Hard to describe... Wowed at arrival in magically lit "secret" rainforest location. Seated in huge beautiful open sided marquee. Beautiful wines flowed freely as we dined on superbly designed and prepared 5 course menu. Entertained with beautiful organic music performed by local singer/guitarist Stu Forbes. Dropped off at hotel feeling wonderful. Worth every cent and not to be missed!

I was seeking a special venue to celebrate my friend's 50th birthday when a colleague recommended I look at Flames of the Forest. This dining experience was absolutely fantastic!
