    Departing from Sydney, leave the stresses of modern life behind as you make the scenic 3-hour drive out west into the mountains. Nestled between the Gardens of Stone and Wollemi National Parks, the Wolgan Valley sprawls across 2,800 hectares of pristine wilderness, where steep cliffs contrast with rugged Australian bush and rolling grasslands.

Enjoy a dip in your private 7-metre long pool or refresh your senses in your ensuite bathroom, where rain shower and roomy tub await. A traditional, double sided stone fireplace takes centre stage in your villa, allowing you to enjoy its warmth from the comfort of plush seating in your dedicated lounge or from your elegant four-poster bed. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a charming veranda means the natural splendour of the Blue Mountains is never far away.

    All meals and select beverages are included, so you will enjoy authentic Australian fine dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sit back and let Executive Chef James Viles take you on a culinary journey through the re-gion, with specialties including Low and Slow Beef Cheek with roast tomato jus, and Roast Tathra Duck with smoked prune and carrot marmalade.
