About an hour from Cairns and 10 minutes from the best hotels in Port Douglas is a dining experience unlike anything else in Queensland. Hidden in the Daintree Rainforest, the Flames of the Forest experience takes place under a tent, with huge trees and dark woods all around. Dramatic but subtle lighting dances off the canopy creating a dreamlike effect. The setting couldn't be more magical.
And the food is great, too! Feast on family-style kangaroo, prawns, reef fish, chicken and steak, along with tasty sides and drinks as you listen to the cultural tales of two indigenous brothers. The sounds of the didgeridoo and the wind in the trees is just about all you can hear - aside from your own chewing, of course.
While the attraction is popular with tourists, you'll find locals there as well, and it's a fun, completely unusual way to learn more about indigenous culture, food and heritage.
