As the last of the leaves fall in Australia, exchange the flaming shades of autumn for a winter wonderland where the mountain air is crisp and pure, and nature comes alive. At this special time of year, watch wildlife up close in the Australian bush, curl up by a roaring fire or indulge in a warming after-dinner tasting of Wolgan Valley-distilled gin. Do as much or as little as you please and celebrate the very best of the winter season in the Greater Blue Mountains.
Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the Winter Wonderland offer and, before they know it, your clients will be relaxing in a beautiful homestead-style villa with private heated pool. Enjoying gourmet dining and wines from the region, plus embarking on endless opportunities to discover the incredible theatre of nature.
The Great Outdoors
Lace up your boots or jump on your bike to explore the magnificent Wolgan Valley when the native wildlife is most active. With over 100 species, kick-start the day with a birdwatching adventure and listen to delicate birdsong as you marvel at the beauty of nature. As the sun starts its slow descent towards the horizon, casting a glorious, golden hue across the ancient sandstone of the escarpments, many of our native animals are starting to become active. You’ll see kangaroos, wallaroos and wallabies, possibly even wedge-tailed eagles.
A whole new experience emerges after dark, as the sky fills with shining stars. In the evening, seek out the best places to encounter and observe possums, wombats, gliding marsupials and owls. Far away from the city lights, the stars in the valley shine ever so bright. Take a telescope tour of the spectacular southern sky to pinpoint planets, stars and even our nearest galaxies. Listen to ancient myths and star lore, sit back, relax and enjoy some fire-roasted marshmallows and mulled wine.
Winter is the perfect time to indulge with some great food and wine, so perch yourself by the open fireplace and embark on a sensory wine and cheese journey. Savour a six-course seasonal degustation in the Wolgan Dining Room or sample the flavours of the valley with a bespoke gin tasting, featuring the resort’s very own 1832 Wolgan Gin.
You can also enjoy an array of unique culinary events highlighting some of Australia’s leading chefs, tastemakers, and winemakers throughout winter. Curated by award-winning executive chef Nancy Kinchela, and designed to delight food and wine lovers, each gourmet experience reflects the culinary philosophy of celebrating the very best of seasonal and regional produce.
