Conservation Activity

Nestled in a private valley between two national parks in the iconic World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains region, west of Sydney, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is an ultra-luxury conservation resort. Occupying just one percent of a 7,000-acre wilderness reserve, Wolgan Valley is a world-leading example of carbon-neutral conservation and sustainable tourism operation. 

Take a fascinating journey into the ecology of the Blue Mountains through the bush regeneration and conservation activities offered at Wolgan Valley. This a chance for guests to make a meaningful ‘hands-on’ contribution including planting trees, saplings and native plants raised from seeds gathered locally and raised in the property’s onsite nursery. The restoration and protection of the reserve provides an important habitat for native wildlife and helps protect the health of the beautiful Carne Creek and Wolgan River.
