The Australian bush experience is made luxurious at this eco resort at Wolgan Valley in the Blue Mountains.
July 8th, 2010
Thanks to the increasing globalisation of travel, trends and outlook, what’s global is now increasingly infiltrating what’s local. Which is why the truly local is now something special – a point of difference – something to be treasured.
Celebrating the beauty of the local, Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa is the latest in a series of resorts around the world financed by Emirates.

The chosen site is bordered on two sides by national parks and is adjacent to a World Heritage Area, where the Resort and Spa occupies just 2% of a 4,000-acre conservancy reserve.
