Discover a winter wonderland in the Greater Blue Mountains
As the last of the leaves fall in Australia, exchange the flaming shades of autumn for a winter wonderland where the mountain air is crisp and pure, and nature comes alive. At this special time of year, watch wildlife up-close in the bush, curl up by a roaring fire or indulge in a warming tasting of Wolgan Valley-distilled gin. Do as much or as little as you please and celebrate the very best of the winter season at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley.
The Great Outdoors
Lace up your boots or jump on your bike to explore the magnificent Wolgan Valley. With over 100 species to be seen, start the day with a bird-watching adventure and listen to delicate birdsong as you marvel at the beauty of nature. As the sun starts its slow descent towards the horizon, casting a glorious, golden hue across the ancient sandstone of the escarpments, many of the native animals are becoming become active. You’ll see kangaroos, wallaroos, wallabies and possibly even some wedge-tailed eagles.
A whole new experience emerges after dark, as you seek out the best places to encounter and observe possums, wombats, gliding marsupials and owls. Far away from the city lights, the stars in the valley shine ever so bright. Take a telescope tour of the spectacular southern sky to pinpoint planets, stars and even our nearest galaxies. Listen to ancient myths and star lore, sit back, relax and enjoy some fire-roasted marshmallows and mulled wine.
Winter is the perfect time to indulge with some great food and wine, so perch yourself by the open fireplace and embark on a sensory wine and cheese journey. Savour a six-course seasonal degustation in the Wolgan Dining Room or sample the flavours of the valley with a bespoke gin tasting, featuring our very own 1832 Wolgan Gin.
You can also enjoy an array of unique culinary events highlighting some of Australia’s leading chefs, tastemakers and winemakers throughout winter. Curated by award-winning Executive Chef Nancy Kinchela, and designed to delight food and wine lovers, each gourmet experience reflects our culinary philosophy of celebrating the very best of seasonal and regional produce.
