Well done, creative and original event. Whoever came up with this idea was definitely thinking outside the box and it was beautifully executed. The fact these evening dinners are staged without harming the forest is an added benefit in my opinion. I could have listened to more Aboriginal stories and would have liked to have kept them there all night. Nothing short of magical.
What a magical time! This is the only way to really see the rain forest.
This was a unique experience with the added bonus of meeting new people from both Australia and abroad as we dined on exotic foods.
A wonderful experience, if a little over priced. The Aboriginal story telling was very moving, and you can only hope that all the other guests feel the same. Incredible atmosphere out in the rain forest.
Great food and atmosphere but could have had better performance.

It is a little bit expensive for me, but I still had a enjoyable night. The environment and service were good.

Excellent location, setting, and food. The night passed quickly during the meal, and at round tables of eight, there was varied company. My only negative comment would be the storytelling after the meal, which was too long. Some other form of Aborigine culture could be incorporated to vary the evening, possibly more music or dance.
This delicious meal was very nicely served. It was a very good program, but the evening was shorter than it should have been because of a problem with a bus driver not knowing the way.
Ambience and setting were nice and the food was great but a little expensive for the whole experience in general.
I was extremely excited about this trip. But for the xxy price I am sad to say it was not worth it. Our experience began with one of the rudest ladies, on the phone. On two occasions she was quite abrupt and unhelpful (rude to say the least) with us. If this were not enough, our shuttle driver got in an accident on the way over there! when we got there no one acknowdleged what we had just been through. The entire night was rushed and hardly worth the effort. My one good review is based on the food: fantastic. As an experience: subpar. Up your game guys.
Nice atmosphere but thought the evening was over priced. When we booked thought the aboriginal dancers were included but found out they only do that on Friday nights. Other guests were also disappointed. Need to change advertising to explain details correctly.
The bus ride from Cairns was way too long and our driver must have thought he was a race driver. Once there, we spent at least a half hour standing around in bare dirt waiting for dinner. The modest proportioned meal was served on plates which were passed around the table. By the time every course got to us, it was about empty. Complaints to staff for more food were ignored. The entertainment was well below average. The evening ended with the same road race home. If you decide to book this turkey, bring along a flashlight to see what you are eating and plenty of bug spray.
This was overpriced and did not live up to the expectations we had. We paid a lot for substandard food and a terrible aboriginal show. The other couples on our table, one from the USA and the other from New Zealand, were extremely disappointed as well. We could have spent the money elsewhere and received so much more. We were very disappointed!
