Emirates One&only Wolgan Valley is (beyond being quite the mouthful) situated 190km northwest of Sydney. Allow three hours to get there by car, or heighten things even further with a 45-minute helicopter transfer (approx. $750 one way ex Sydney).
Prices start at approx. $1640 per person per night, for a minimum of two nights. Go with a Heritage Suite if you want a private pool. Meals, alcohol and nearly all activities are included in the price.
Head here during the cooler months for something different and slightly more intimate – when the valley awakens each morning blanketed in heavy fog and lighting the private fireplace is a great nightly option.
