In the midst of a 4,000-acre conservancy reserve, Wolgan Valley is an Aussie bush station, but with bells on.

Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

Built completely from scratch just a scenic three hour drive from Sydney, Wolgan Valley could not feel further removed from the city.

There are just 40 large suites, each with four-poster beds, walk in wardrobes (with leather-lined drawers), airy slate-lined bathrooms and private lap pools.

Breakfasts and suppers are served in the main dining room at the homestead, while the Country Kitchen produces excellent lunches. Guests also have the option to eat at a number of scenic locations around the reserve. The Valley Bar & Terrace is the perfect place to enjoy an evening drink accompanied by panoramic views of the Wolgan Valley itself.

There is a strong focus on sustainability, with rainwater used in the baths and showers which are heated by solar panels. In addition, the drinking water is from a local creek and the head chef uses ingredients sourced wherever possible from within 100 miles of the property.

Activities on offer include guided wildlife walks, four-wheel drive safaris, mountain biking and horse-riding, heritage tours, and visits to the cliffs and canyons of the Wollemi and Gardens of Stone national parks. Closer to home, the Timeless Spa offers a wide range of therapies and there is a fully-equipped gym, sauna, steam room and a 75ft outdoor swimming pool.

Why we love it

Even arriving at Wolgan Valley is an adventure as Bell's Line of Road (State Route 40) from Sydney is one of the great Aussie drives, after which it's juddery dirt track and dust time. But if you prefer to arrive in style you could always arrive by chopper…
