Lakes & Mountains
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is set on Australia's Great Dividing Range, between Wollemi National Park and the Gardens of Stone National Park, within the awe-inspiring World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains. Wolgan Valley boasts extraordinary scenery, as Wolgan River cuts its way through a deep gorge carving through sandstone rock, while the steep cliffs contrast with the gentle curve of the valley floor, of which a pleasing road winds alongside the river to reach the eastern end of the resort, which occupies just one per cent of its own 7,000-acre conservancy.
If you're a lover of the outdoors and nature, you'll revel in the area's breathtaking natural scenery, enjoying a number of outdoor pursuits, such as horse-riding, nature walks and wildlife safaris. Take the opportunity to participate in protecting the valley and its wildlife through the Conservation in Action programme, a memorable activity as you and your family become part of the 'Wolgan' story. The programme will see you participate in wildlife surveys, test water quality, plant trees, conduct habitat assessments, feral animal monitoring and wombat surveys, and includes the chance to observe kangaroos and other beautiful animals during 'Conservation Hour'.
Culture & History
Unearth the extraordinary heritage of Australia's colonial and industrial past on one of the excellent historical tours. The Colonial Heritage Tour sees you depart from the 1832 Heritage Homestead and Kitchen Garden as guides walk you through this remarkable historic precinct. Guests enjoy stories of a past life and catch a glimpse of the conditions early Australian settlers faced. Alternatively, there's the fascinating private guided tour of Newness Industrial Ruins. Explore a period when heavy industry reigned supreme and many Australians sought to find their fortune in 'black gold' and shale oil.
Spa & Wellness
The hotel's Timeless Spa offers an exclusive selection of treatments and specialist techniques using the 100% natural, chemical-free Sodashi range of products. The outcome is an enhancement of wellness, relaxation and healing. For those guests keen to maintain their exercise regime while on holiday, there is a fully-equipped gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and plunge pool.
The resort is family-friendly and welcomes children of all ages.
