The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, less than two hours west of Sydney, lure travelers with an experience that lives up to the evocative name. Characterized by a blue haze—the product of the natural oils from the area’s eucalyptus forests—the area’s beauty inspires wonder and adventure. There are nature trails to suit all levels, and you can immerse yourself in the region’s Aboriginal history through guided walks, artwork exhibitions, and traditional performances. An authentic and unique experience in the Blue Mountains can be found at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, a mountain resort like no other, and a Luxury Lodge of Australia.
Swain Destinations’ consultants can steer you to the area’s picturesque towns and the best restaurants and hotels, including Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, one of the Luxury Lodges of Australia. It’s secluded within a private conservation and wildlife reserve and offers activities such as scenic four-wheel drives, heritage interpretive tours, wildlife spotting, and horse riding.
