The Natural Wonders of New South Wales

Aug 13, 2019

Embark on an Australian Coastal and Mountain Experience like no other. Combine a stay at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley and Pretty Beach House for a quintessential Australian experience, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Australian bush.  

To the north of Sydney, you’ll find the NSW’s Bouddi National Park and peninsula, a coastal delight with spectacular beaches, bays and a rich indigenous history. The peninsula is playground to surfers and water lovers alike, and the word ‘Bouddi’ is the local Aboriginal name for the area and has become synonymous with the national park and the surrounding lands. It has various meanings in Aboriginal languages, however is most commonly known to mean 'heart'.

Award-winning Pretty Beach House is surrounded by eight pristine beaches and glistening bays. Nestled amongst towering Australian gum trees you will create memories that will last a lifetime at Pretty Beach House. You will feel you are deep within the Australian bush, yet you’re so close to the city and stunning golden beaches are at your doorstep. Lobster Beach, Tallow Beach and the surf break Box Head are all within walking distance from the resort, whilst Killcare Beach, Putty Beach and Hardy’s Bay are close by. Sydney’s famous Palm Beach, Pittwater and the Hawkesbury River are within the local glorious waterways for a day on the boat. Stay in your own luxurious pavilion surrounded by mother nature, with world class facilities Pretty Beach House is the epitome of laidback luxury.

Journey inland and explore the majesty of Australia’s Greater Blue Mountains region. Nestled amongst 7,000-acres of protected wilderness and surrounded by two national parks, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a chic conservation retreat that immerses you in nature and re-invigorates the soul. Beside the crackling fireplace, on the peaceful veranda or around your private swimming pool, you’ll find secluded sanctuary to unwind with loved ones and soak up the valley views. 

Embark on epic fresh air adventures including hiking, mountain biking, and horse riding along hidden trails, sparkling creeks, and epic ridgelines. Encounter Australian wildlife on exhilarating 4WD safaris by day and night and stargaze around the atmospheric campfire. Get hands-on with our important conservation work. Experience indulgent spa treatments, outdoor yoga and nourishing cuisine; seasonal, regional, and masterfully prepared.

The perfect combination of two resorts with a conscience, both offering world class service in a relaxed yet luxurious environment within two naturally diverse regions of NSW.  This itinerary can be combined with Sydney Seaplanes flight from Sydney to Pretty Beach House or a helicopter flight, then a Sydney HeliTours flight to/from Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley.
