After arriving in Sydney, the first stop on Liane’s itinerary is in the nearby Blue Mountains. If you assume that phrases like “conservation-based” and “carbon-neutral” add up to roughing it in primitive conditions, then Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley will come as a surprise. Located on its own 7,000-acre preserve between two national parks, this is a luxurious eco-retreat with every amenity you could want. Each one of the 40 free-standing suites has its own pool and fireplace and the spa has an extensive menu using 100% natural and chemical free products, of course.
