Wildlife wonders

This is your invitation to admire kangaroos, wallaroos, wallabies and native birds up close, as the setting sun turns the ancient sandstone escarpments a burnished, glowing gold. To turn your eyes to the skies and wonder at wedge-tailed eagles and jewel-bright birds in flight. To gasp at tiny gliders sailing between the trees and to touch and smell our native flora, including the tree that flavours our delicious signature gin.

Why Do We Recommend Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley?

First, it sits in the midst of a nature reserve near Australia’s famous Blue Mountain range and is just a 3-hour drive from Sydney. Second, the views are sublime.  Third, the villas have “pamper” written all over them. And finally, the wellness activities and spa are world-renowned and I’ve been told that the dining is superb.
