Experience the wonders of the Blue Mountains at Dusk
As the day draws to a close at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, the adventures are just beginning. Departing the Main Homestead each evening, the property’s signature Wildlife & Sundowners tour takes guests on an excursion into the valley, where at sundown many of the animals native to this 2,800 hectare reserve become more active.
With a dedicated Field Guide using insider knowledge of the season to plan the route most likely to provide wildlife spotting opportunities, you can expect to see kangaroos and wallabies – as well as countless indigenous birds – up close and in their natural habitat.
To top it all off, the two-hour safari culminates at the colonial homestead, where sparkling wine and canapés await to accompany tales about the traditions of life in the bush and the history of Wolgan Valley.
