Attraction details
Owner description: Really? Flames continually burning in a forest for over 90 years - why doesn't it burn down? See for yourself the extraordinary sight of dancing flames, fed by a natural gas seep, surrounded by lush ferns and ancient beech trees. Have ‘billy tea’ and pancakes cooked over the flames. Half-day trip includes two hour guided walk, 4WD transport and a visit to a working deer farm in a beautiful valley full of oil prospecting history.

I was lucky enough to accompany the operators on one of their prototype runs, prior to public launch! A lovely trip in itself, the final destination is just mind boggling - I read somewhere there are only two known instances of this phenomenon in the world.

Something completely different, and hosted by locals with an in-depth knowledge of the area, which they are enthusiastic to share!

Looking forward to a repeat visit next time I’m in the area!

Thank Rodney W

Wow - that's great to get a review so soon; thanks very much for that!
The trip seems to be popular already - we must stress that you need to wear sturdy shoes with good grip at this time of year as it can be a bit muddy and 'slippy.' ;-)
Hope to see you again soon!
