Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, New South Wales


Private pool perfection on a secluded wildlife reserve between two national parks.

Serious luxury and dramatic scenery go hand in hand at this conservation based resort. Tucked away in a remote valley of the Blue Mountains, you’ll be greeted by herds of kangaroos as you approach.  Inhale the scent of eucalyptus and unwind in the stillness of the Australian bush.

Dotted around an original 19th century farm homestead are just 40 freestanding private pool villas. Built in traditional Federation-style, inside you’ll find an opulent four-poster bed and expansive veranda from which to drink in the stunning escarpment views. If you’re travelling as a family or group, we recommend the stunningly spacious, three-bedroom Wolgan Villa.

Exploring the reserve is a joy. Saddle up for a trail ride around the surrounding hills, creeks and ridgelines. Spot wombats and wallabies on guided nature walks and wildlife tours. There’s also tennis, archery and miles of mountain bike trails. The wide-open spaces are always a hit with children, who have their own Junior Rangers activity programme to enjoy.

While there’s lots to do, many people come simply to relax and enjoy the stillness. At the Timeless Spa, you can drift away with an aromatherapy message to the sound of chirping kookaburras. Then enjoy a perfectly mixed G&T at the main homestead as the sun disappears from view.
