FOOD & WINE
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley delivers a world-class culinary experience of uniquely Australian cuisine enhanced by a seasonal, regional, and organic food philosophy. The culinary experiences offered by Executive Chef Jerome Tremoulet are Uniquely Australian and the food celebrates the unique range of local produce, with each meal featuring simple flavor combinations and high-quality ingredients handled with great technique.
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley has a strong commitment to the local suppliers and is proud to showcase the quality and diversity of Australian produce while significantly reducing the resort’s food miles and carbon footprint. Quality ingredients and fresh seasonal produce that compete on a global scale are sourced daily, courtesy of the resort’s unparalleled location in regional New South Wales, surrounded by award-winning vineyards and the culinary offerings of Orange, Mudgee, and the Hunter Valley – a region which has historically played a key role as Sydney’s ‘Food Bowl’. This unique location also makes it possible for the Chef to create new and exciting dishes out of niche local produce that most larger hotels and restaurants will not have access to, making the guest experience special.
Exploring natural and local produce has enabled Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley to establish sound farm-to-fork practices. Wherever possible, the resort aims to source the majority of its products and ingredients within a hundred miles, providing the finest in culinary dining experience whilst supporting local producers. The Wine Cellar features over 150 different wines with an eclectic selection of Australian and international labels with a major focus on the local regions of Mudgee, Orange, and the Hunter Valley.
This approach not only assists the growth of the local economy but also significantly reduces the resort’s food miles and carbon footprint. In line with the resort’s environment and conservation commitment, the food supply chain has also been streamlined. Orders from different producers are consolidated into one single daily delivery to the resort, keeping traffic down in the Wolgan Valley. The tariff at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley includes gourmet breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, nonalcoholic beverages including house-roasted coffee, and a range of selected regional wines and beer with lunch and dinner daily. The dinner menu changes daily, and the a la carte lunch menu is supplemented by daily seasonal specials.
In the midst of 7,000 acres of rugged wilderness, 200 million years of natural heritage, and over 1,500 unique flora and fauna species, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley offers guests the chance to immerse themselves in an authentic and meaningful experience whilst enjoying luxurious accommodation, fine food & wine, and a range of holistic spa treatments.
Wolgan Valley is rich in cultural, environmental, and historical significance. The resort is steeped in history – from ancient Aboriginal times to the presence of an 1832 Heritage Homestead restored to its original glory and a connection to Charles Darwin – who visited the Wolgan Valley in 1836.
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley combines the expectations of the high-end traveler with a commitment to broader social, ecological, and environmental sustainability. Heralding a new era of luxury travel in Australia, the resort actively protects its surrounding habitat and aboriginal wildlife species while delivering the first-class standards and quality expected from luxury resorts.
Guests are invited to take part in numerous excursions, based on the incredible beauty of the location, its wildlife and ecology, archaeology, and both settler and aboriginal history. Activities include 4×4 safaris, night wildlife spotting, horse riding, mountain biking, bushwalking, birdwatching, heritage, and aboriginal interpretation tours.
The resort is private to in-house guests, providing them exclusivity on all activities. Each activity has been developed with the belief that life experiences are often personal, individual, and in some way emotionally moving. Today, life’s luxuries are about having time, time to experience things alone or together with those who mean the most to us.
Activities are offered at various skill and fitness levels as well as personal interests and are suitable for older guests, families, and highly active, more adventurous visitors. From enjoying lunch together in absolute solitude alongside a forest creek; to a father and son late-night BBQ under the stars; or a social sundowner with friends after an afternoon four-wheel-drive excursion, the Wolgan Valley experience is likely to remain alive in memories long after.
While staying at the resort, guests are free to do as much or as little as they like. Complementing the nature-based activities on offer, The One&Only Spa offers a distinct range of relaxation, rejuvenation, and beauty therapies drawn from techniques used traditionally in various parts of the world.
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is located approximately 190 kilometers or a 2.5 hour’s drive North-west of Sydney, between the Gardens of Stone National Park to the North, and Wollemi National Park to the East, both part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area. The closest township is Lithgow, 35 kilometers to the South.
