Charles Darwin passed through Wolgan Valley in 1836, and it's tempting to believe that this brand-new $112 million conservation-focused resort in a 4,000-acre nature reserve would impress even him. The Greater Blue Mountains Area is a nature-lover's paradise of eucalyptus forests, jagged sandstone outcrops, ancient flora, and isolated marsupials a three-hour drive from Sydney. Within Wolgan's boundaries, the goal is to augment this natural beauty via a massive tree-planting and a native-fauna-breeding program aimed at returning the land to its condition before ranchers moved in. The price for a stay in one of the 40 close-clustered, free-standing suites is as steep as the nearby escarpments, but this is responsible luxury on an impressive scale. Designed to complement the surroundings, Wolgan nestles into its setting with great sensitivity (recycled materials abound, rainwater powers the showers). A homestead museum has been constructed, and activities include mountain biking and (for experienced riders) horse treks—although it's wonderful to just relax in a location so idyllic that it soothes the senses and the soul.
Which room to book: Suite 4 to be nearest the main buildings, Suite 38 for maximum privacy.
