Testimonials

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the opportunity to experience Flames Of The Forest first hand. I kind of knew what to expect, but actually being there and experiencing it first hand was something else.  The setup and the way it has been done with the candles and then the Aboriginal inviting us to the tent and the tent itself, the dreamtime story, the food etc  – was just a magical and a wonderful experience.

Hilla Irani

What a magical evening, so well executed from the transfers all the way through.  Your setting is spectacular, your food is divine and your service is impeccable. Congratulations to you all. As newly weds here in port Douglas we were not only amazed by the spirit of the dreamtime, we were quite overwhelmed by it all. Our hearts were so full I ended up crying with the sheer beauty of the night and the dreamtime story. My husband and I will recommend this night to everyone and we will also be back for our anniversary. You all deserve a pat on the back. Perfect night. Thank you so, so much.
