Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is an ultra-luxury conservation-based resort, located around 2.5 hours’ drive — or a 45-minute helicopter flight — from Sydney in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Greater Blue Mountains region. Nestled between two national parks, Gardens of Stone and Wollemi National Park, it’s set on 7,000 acres of carbon-neutral conservation and wildlife reserve.

Occupying just 1% of the total land area, the resort has 40 villas, each with a pool, double-sided fireplace and private verandah, offering stunning views across the surrounding valley.

The Main Homestead features various dining settings, including the Wolgan Dining Room, with panoramic views; The Country Kitchen, an informal restaurant; the Valley Bar & Terrace; a walk-in wine cellar with over 150 wines; and the Creekside Room, a private dining area that can seat up to 12. The resort’s food philosophy is based on seasonal, regional and, where possible, organic produce from within a 100-mile radius, with ingredients incorporated from the resort’s kitchen garden.

Offering the ultimate in relaxation, the resort’s One&Only Spa is a sanctuary of wellbeing with an extensive range of treatments designed to revitalise the mind, body and soul. The spa features six treatment rooms and incorporates specialised techniques from Australia’s own Sodashi skin care range to offer a unique and enriching experience. Relax and unwind surrounded by the beauty of nature. On weekends, there are yoga classes — set to the backdrop of the Greater Blue Mountains — held for guests, combining breathing, moving and meditation.

The resort’s unique blend of native fauna and flora, dramatic landscapes and heritage, can be explored through a range of guided tours and exciting activities. Discover the countryside on horseback, embark on a wildlife tour by 4×4 vehicle, mountain bike through the valley, marvel at valley views from atop Donkey Mountain or simply gaze at a canopy of stars from the fireside. Guests are also invited to take part in important conservation work alongside the resort’s expert field guides.
