A Magical Must-Visit Hidden Gem
Posted Sep 5, 2016 on Hotels
We were visiting Australia for the first time, all the way from the US. We arrived into Sydney airport and got in the car for the scenic 3 hour drive to Wolgan, although we were told taking a helicopter is also an option because it cuts your travel time to only about 45 mins and lands at the resort. Wolgan is a magical place to visit. The rooms are amazing with an incredible view over the valley, a private pool, cozy fireplace and each lodge comes with bikes to use during your stay (our neighbors had kids with them and they each had their own kid bikes too). You'll never want to leave your room, but you walk out of the front door, and there are free-roaming kangaroos, wallabies, and wombats just hanging out on the lawn in the middle of the resort. It is incredible, and never got old seeing that during our 3 day stay. The general manager of the resort is always present, walking around greeting guests, and he was so kind to even give us recommendations for our time in Syd after we left Wolgan. I highly recommend doing the bush walk that they offer with a guide, as well as doing the afternoon wildlife tour which gets you up close and personal with all of the animals, as well as providing the most spectacular views of the blue mountains. Im so grateful to our friend for recommending this unbelievable place that we would have never found on our own, and we will definitely be visiting again in the future and recommending this to other friends! It's a MUST VISIT!!!
