BACK TO NATURE: AUSTRALIA
The world’s most pristine wilderness is in our own backyard, so let’s explore.
In a world of towering skyscrapers that race to outgrow each other and hotel suites so large that little ones can feel rather lost, the most memorable journey is one that takes families back to nature. Vast skies, boundless bodies of water and ancient eucalypts are the star attractions at these wilderness retreats.
EMIRATES ONE&ONLY WOLGAN VALLEY RESORT & SPA EAGLEREACH WILDERNESS RESORT
Couples have long flocked to the Hunter Valley for the region’s wines, but the area is just as suited to families who stay at Eaglereach. A two-, three- or four-bedroom Spa Lodge affords views of Barrington Tops or the Pacific Ocean, while fishing, yabbying and stargazing offer an increasingly rare encounter with Australia’s flora and fauna. Kayak on Goonarook Lagoon.
Enjoy a picnic with a hamper packed with fresh produce.
