On selected nights the rainforest comes alive with a veritable feast for all the senses! Enveloped by the Daintree Rainforest, these unique natural surrounds provide a magical setting for a cultural dining experience like nowhere else on the planet. Spend the evening socialising, dining on sumptuous tropical cuisine and watching local Aboriginal brothers perform songs and stories belonging to their beautiful Indigenous culture. There is no better way to spend an evening in Tropical North Queensland!

This evening of theatre, tropical dining and authentic Aboriginal culture, explored through storytelling and music, is a must-do for anyone interested in history, culture, the rainforest, meeting new people and of course those who love great Australian food!

We had a great evening

We had a great evening, really loved the candles & tree lights not to mention the great food & very attentive staff, everything went very smoothly from the pickup to the drop off , the story of the platypus brought back memories from hearing this story when I was a little kid, thanks.
