BLUE MOUNTAINS, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA

For a complete wind down, a stay at Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley is the total package. Wake up to the misty mountains, watch the Kangaroos dine at your doorstep, and get lost in the winding bush tracks through this stunning property. With a roaring fireplace at every turn and a paddock-to-plate culinary experience, this is indulgence on another level.

The Barossa Valley is a region that celebrates a rich history dating back to the 1800s. With quaint towns and storybook homes dotted amongst the vineyards, the charm of this wine country is infectious. The soil has a story to tell, with a passion in every pour and a philosophy in each bite.
The Barossa is truly the jewel of South Australia. To savour its beauty, The Louise is the perfect place to rest your weary head. This breathtaking property is the epitome of Australian luxe. With an infinity pool overlooking the valley and a dining room that dedicates itself to seasonal produce, the lure of The Louise goes way beyond the wine.
