Great savings on Australian wilderness retreats

Great savings on Australian wilderness retreats

It might scorching over here, but Australia is now heading into autumn, when the blistering sun takes a bit of a break and the oppressive temperatures that characterise much of the summer months drop down to a pleasant mid-to-low 20°C. As such, it is one of the best times to visit cities like Sydney, the cosmopolitan capital of New South Wales, which is at its most exuberant at this time of year, away from the crowds and the oppressive humidity.

If you are planning a trip to Sydney over the coming months, consider venturing a little outside the centre, too: the stunning Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa is just three hours away from the city by car ( or a mere 45-minutes by helicopter, if you’re feeling particularly flash). What’s more, the luxury eco-retreat – which features in our Hot List 2010 – is offering guests who book a stay before the end of August huge discounts on its Winter Escape package, with savings of up to AUD600 to be had on a gourmet two-day getaway.

Nestled in a secluded valley by the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, the spa is the perfect place to relax and unwind, while also giving you the opportunity to explore the fascinating Australian wilderness. It is also the country’s very first conservation lodge, making it a great choice for the eco-conscious as well as lovers of luxury.

Staying in the supreme surrounds of a Heritage suite, you will be treated to a complimentary breakfast each morning, before heading out to a private treatment room for some serious relaxation. After lunch, you may head into the mountains to take part in one of two free nature activities, take it easy in your private pool, or indulge your inner gourmand with an expert cheese and wine-tasting experience. In the evening, enjoy a gourmet feast with a partner or friend, and watch the sun set over the beautiful valley with a panoramic view to boot.

The Winter Escape package is available from 1 May – 31 August 2001, and costs AUD 1,365 (around ?780) per person. For more information, and to book, visit or call 00 61 29290 9733.
