Flames of the For­est in top 5

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

FLAMES of the For­est is go­ing from strength to strength, tak­ing a top five po­si­tion for the third year run­ning as best re­gional venue in SPICE mag­a­zine.

As one of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing meet­ing and in­cen­tive pub­li­ca­tions, SPICE asks read­ers to name the ‘‘best in busi­ness’’ across a range of ser­vices and sup­pli­ers within Aus­tralia.

Flames of the For­est is the only main­land venue in Queens­land in­cluded in this pres­ti­gious list.

Flames of the For­est cel­e­brated its 10th an­niver­sary in March this year, hav­ing gained an in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion for its stun­ning off site rain­for­est events which com­bine the nat­u­ral beauty of the re­gion with su­perb lo­cal pro­duce, sur­pris­ing and pro­fes­sional en­ter­tain­ment and awe-in­spir­ing spe­cial ef­fects.

Flames of the For­est gen­eral man­ager Natalie John­son said the venue was proud of the award.

‘‘To be in­cluded three years run­ning is an ab­so­lute tes­ta­ment to our amaz­ing staff - from those in the of­fice to our bril­liant kitchen and floor staff on site. This truly is their award,’’ she said. ‘‘To be awarded this ac­co­lade by our busi­ness events in­dus­try clients and peers is re­ally spe­cial and we want to thank them for all their sup­port over the past 10 years. We’ve had a truly won­der­ful time de­liv­er­ing each event.

‘‘We are ex­cep­tion­ally for­tu­nate to op­er­ate in such a nat­u­rally stun­ning en­vi­ron­ment in a re­gion fa­mous for its beauty, fresh pro­duce and sen­sa­tional sur­rounds.

‘‘We are de­lighted this SPICE HOT 100 in­clu­sion will as­sist in con­tin­u­ing to fo­cus the spot­light on both our venue for gala and awards din­ners to­gether with the re­gion as a whole for busi­ness events.’’

In re­cent years Flames of the For­est was awarded Aus­tralian Trav­eller Mag­a­zine ‘‘Top 100 Great­est Aus­tralian Gourmet Ex­pe­ri­ences’’, was a fi­nal­ist in both the 2009 and 2010 Aus­tralian Event Awards ‘‘Best Venue’’ cat­e­gory and a ‘‘Best Re­gional Venue’’ win­ner in the SPICE Hot 100 Ser­vices and Sup­pli­ers in 2011 and 2012.
