Located in the Greater Blue Mountains between two magnificent National Parks, guests at this premier One&Only hideaway have the opportunity to explore the breathtaking beauty of the Australian wilderness. Lying within its own 7,000 acre wildlife and conservation reserve, it features forty luxury standalone villas designed in Federation style, each with its own private swimming pool, fireplace and veranda. Focus of the resort is the 1832 Heritage Homestead and Kitchen Garden that stands on the property, a hub of activity. Distinctive dining is overseen by internationally acclaimed chefs using produce from local boutique farms and vintners to create cuisine that is authentically Australian, right down to the region’s fine cheeses. Experience a unique blend of wildlife, dramatic natural beauty, conservation, heritage and a spectacular bush setting, discovered through activities including four wheel drives, heritage tours, wildlife spotting and horse riding. The spa uses elements sourced from the surrounding environment to cosset and pamper. Experience the bliss of a mountain aroma massage or signature bathing ritual before idling awhile in the relaxation room.
Prices per person per night including breakfast, lunch, evening dinner, non-alcoholic beverages, selected regional wines and beers and two on-site nature activities per day. Children over 8 years of age are welcome. Room upgrades available.

Get to know the reserve and its native fauna from the comfort of a 4WD touring bus, departing with field guides towards sunset for opportunities to view kangaroos, wallabies and diverse birdlife. The Wolgan Signature Wildlife & Sundowners Tour culminates with drinks at the homestead while being immersed in the Wolgan story. On the Nocturnal Wildlife & Stargazing Tour, also by 4WD bus, gain insights into the constellations of the night sky while seeking out possums, wombats, gliding marsupials and other nocturnal creatures.
A Wolgan Signature Horse Trail Ride brings the opportunity to ride at a leisurely pace amid scenic hills with river crossings, open grasslands and eucalypt woodland, often moving through mobs of kangaroos. This is a small group experience, with routes graded according to the group’s abilities. Longer Private Trail Rides in the company of an experienced guide cross some of the higher ridgelines, with a rest stop for morning or afternoon tea, or picnic lunch.
Australia’s seasons in most areas are the opposite to those in the UK and best visited from November to March. However, the best months to visit the Northern Territory, Kimberley and tropical North Queensland are during the dry season from April to November.
