Deep within The Blue Mountains lays a pocket of perfection whose beauty enchanted Charles Darwin himself. Discover the many ways that the resort invites its guests to embrace the luxury of nature from those who have experienced it for themselves.

Imagine a helicopter flight over Sydney, one of the most scenic cities in the world, coupled with a bird’s-eye view of the Blue Mountains. It’s a joy ride topped off by a landing in a valley so beautiful that your jaw will literally drop in wonder. This is what it is like to arrive at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley with Sydney Heli; a magnificent experience that will forever hold a place in my heart.
A Culinary Journey
Petrina Brown, Noller & Turner Travel Associates, QLD
From the moment the main doors of The Wolgan Dining Room sweep open you can’t help but be drawn into this airy, high-ceilinged space, which beckons you forward with gleaming wooden floors and an inviting stone fireplace. The menu overflows with local produce, and the six-course dinner degustation is like a delicious journey through the fields and farms of The Blue Mountains.

The Nocturnal Wildlife and Stargazing Tour managed to stand out against an array of incredible activities. From our luxury 4WD we spotted wombats, kangaroos, wallaroos and wallabies, and learned all about their secret nightlife. Bubbly and nibbles awaited us at our stargazing destination, where we sat back to learn about the glory of the stars amidst the pitch black serenity of the Wolgan Valley night.
Luxurious Homestead Charm
Gemma Gannon, Gannon & Turner Travel Associates, VIC
An amazing blend of luxury and homestead charm made me feel immediately at home as I entered my villa. Whisper-soft linen and a Nespresso coffee machine were just a few of my favourite features, but the private plunge pool takes the cake. Its concertina doors give you the choice of total privacy or sweeping views of the sheer cliffs and rolling bushland, a perfect scene to gaze on as you drift in the gently heated water.
Views of Paradise
Louis Teng, Ashmore & James Travel Associates, VIC
The views will astonish you with beauty at every turn. The valley is nestled between the Wollemi and Gardens of Stone National Parks; a haven of emerald greenery and stunningly contrasting wildlife. Views of the mighty cliff faces and lush bushland make dining in the restaurant seem like picnicking in paradise, and throughout the day the changing light reveals a hundred different aspects.

I loved the time that we spent learning about the rich history of the valley and browsing through the resort’s historical memorabilia. The fully restored homestead pays homage to the Aboriginal and settler history of the site, which is recorded back as far as 1832. Charles Darwin himself visited the original homestead, and was awestruck by the natural splendour that envelops the valley.
