Off the beaten track has long been a trend for luxury travellers, but 2018 paved the way for a deeper kind of travel: experiential travel. The luxe traveller wants to invest in an immersive getaway, where an authentic and engaging experience pays tribute to the history and natural environment of a place.

Take a look at the exclusive Luxury Escapes x Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Documentary: The Valley. You’ll also find it across Qantas In-Flight Entertainment.

Exclusively nestled in a private valley in the Greater Blue Mountains area—a majestic three-hour drive from Sydney— the award-winning Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley has taken experiential travel to a new level, celebrating its ninth consecutive year of being carbon neutral.  It was the world’s first resort to gain an international carbon neutral status and remains Australia’s most luxurious getaway with this status of accreditation.

Emirates One&Only Wolgan ValleyBy 2023, the resort aims to have zero waste to landfill – an incredible achievement for a property that was named the Regional Deluxe Hotel of the Year for the third consecutive time at the 2018 Tourism Accommodation Australia Awards for Excellence.

“From the moment guests leave their cars at the gate, they are transported to a wilderness oasis run by passionate conservationists, who ensure that guests not only enjoy the resort but also gain a deeper understanding of the stunning bushland setting.”

Water from Carne Creek in Wolgan ValleyAs well as bottling their own water from the on-site Carne Creek and working to protect the area’s natural wildlife, Brendan Millet, the resort’s Special Projects Manager, explains that One&Only Wolgan Valley is scaling up its environmental conservation initiatives; with a yearly audit by CarboNZero ensuring they stay on track.

Currently, the 7,000-acre nature reserve is working on a “project with NSW EPA to turn organic waste to water,” explains Millet. “This will remove approximately sixty per cent of waste currently going to landfill.”

“Once this has been achieved, the installation and implementation will take approximately three months.”

“This initiative further underlines our carbon performance and the ability of the guest to stay at a resort that is very committed to the circular economy and substantially reducing our carbon footprint,” says Millet.

Bike Riding at Emirates One&Only Wolgan ValleyNinety per cent of the resort’s activities are based on the property, providing guests with total environmental immersion through activities such as horse riding, mountain biking, wildlife drives and more.

It’s time to get on board – you can tread lightly but still experience life’s ultimate luxuries.
