Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley
Nestled within the World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is an ultra-luxury conservation-based resort.
Occupying just one percent of its 7,000 acre nature and wildlife reserve, the resort brings a quintessential Australian bush experience to its distinguished guests, all while capturing the unique and original beauty of its location. Still featuring an 1832 Heritage Homestead named after the year it was built, One&Only Wolgan Valley shares stories of its Aboriginal, settler and agricultural history while keeping up with the comforts of today.
Each of the 40 elegantly-appointed villas feature their own private swimming pool, the spa offers exquisite treatments designed to revitalize mind, body and spirit, and the restaurants incorporate local produce into their masterfully-created meals.
Of course, excursions like wildlife safaris, nature walks, mountain biking and horse riding all add to the experience.
EMIRATES ONE&ONLY WOLGAN VALLEY LOCATION
At approximately 16 miles long and 4 miles wide, the Wolgan Valley is located on Australia’s Great Dividing Range between Wollemi National Park and Gardens of Stone National Park. Nestled serenely between steep cliffs and alongside a river, the resort boasts stunning scenery and exceptional experiences, all beneath the magical haze of the Blue Mountains horizon.
Easily accessed by a 2.5-hour drive or 45-minute helicopter out of Sydney, you’ll find Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is refreshingly removed from daily life. The closest township is Lithgow, 21 miles to the South, keeping the views from your private villa perfectly unspoiled with vast meadows, sandstone cliffs, dense forest and rich wildlife.
With a main homestead, 40 private villas and multiple restaurants temping providore-style plates, One&Only Wolgan Valley is a decidedly elegant resort. Whether you book into a homey Heritage Villa or the exclusive Wolgan Villa, each is a sanctuary of privacy and perfection – complete with your own private pool and tasteful Federation-style décor. Think spacious bedrooms, double-sided fireplaces and expansive verandas facing out towards the mountains.
After waking to a dreamy sunrise, take some time to explore the grounds. Excursions include horseback riding, guided bush walks and hikes, archery, mountain biking, wildlife safaris, heritage tours, campfires, stargazing and conservation activities.
