Tour description provided by Viator

Feel your senses ignite when you take a walk through the world's oldest rainforest to wine, dine and be entertained by candlelight in the Flames of the Forest near Port Douglas. You'll feel the wonder of this legendary place, hear the music and storytelling of an Aboriginal cultural performance, and experience the spellbinding candlelit drama of the enchanted rainforest. This is a magical and memorable way to visit the rainforest!

Your evening in the rainforest begins with a walk along a flame-lit trail beneath the forest canopy to a secluded clearing, where you'll be welcomed with sparkling wine and hors d'oeuvres. You'll then be introduced to the vibrant Aboriginal culture that stretches back more than 40 thousand years.

Then it's time to relax under a marquee canopy with crystal and budlight chandeliers and flickering candles, while you dine on a seven course platter style banquet accompanied by Australian wines and beer. The evening unfolds with ancient tales told by firelight from the Aboriginal Dreamtime. After dessert, enjoy local Daintree tea and Tablelands coffee, while you sit back and let the sound of the rainforest tell its own story.

By enjoying the Flames of the Forest, you will have contributed to preserving local habitats, helping to ensure that these soul-nurturing rainforests will last another million years!
