    Flames of the Forest
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Australia’s only rainforest dining experience, Flames of the Forest creates memories to last a lifetime. Picked up from your hotel, your coach will wind through the forest before arriving at a secret, special location where your evening unfolds. Walk the flame lit path illuminated by candle light before arriving in a secluded clearing where you will be welcomed with sparkling wine. Take your seat under the black silk lined dining area glowing with crystal and bud light chandeliers and flickering flame, all the while surrounded by age old rainforest. Showcasing a local, tropics inspired menu accompanied by a selection of quality beverages and set amidst the candle lit rainforest under a black silk canopy with sparkling chandeliers, Flames of the Forest offers guests the choice of two distinctly different dining experiences. • An evening entwined with an Indigenous cultural performance by two local Aboriginal brothers featuring traditional storytelling, didgeridoo and song (Tuesday and Thursday) • The romantic serenade of a solo acoustic guitarist (Saturday) For details about the rest of your evening, please see the options and menus below: Flames of the Forest 7 course Aboriginal Cultural Dining Experience (Tuesday and Thursday): Feast on a 7 dish plattered banquet served to the table featuring the freshest local produce (menu below), meats and seafood.
