An Australian escape

RM Williams and Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley have collaborated for two nights of authentic Australian experiences, steeped in luxury.

Yes, there will be Akubras, bush tucker and horse riding, but they'll be delivered in the signature comfort and opulence for which  Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is renowned. The resort, one of Australia's best-known luxury properties, has partnered with true-blue Aussie brand RM Williams for two nights of dinkum Australiana.

"Both companies share an inherent love of nature, heritage and the environment," says Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley's general manager, James Wyndham. "This weekend is a celebration of those values and a chance to share this with our guests."

Nights will be spent in the resort's Heritage Villas, complete with a private pool and sweeping views of the Blue Mountains. Days present the option of rambling across the 2,800 hectares of the resort's wildlife reserve or partaking in outdoor activities, including a horse trail ride (BYO Akubra) led by head of heritage and heartland at RM Williams, Terry Goodear, followed by stargazing by campfire with Outback Magazine editor-in-chief, Mark Muller.

Bush tucker will make an appearance in the form of a five-course dinner paired with some of Australia's best wines. The menu's focus is locally sourced ingredients presented in dishes such as kangaroo smoked on the property served alongside baby beetroot and beetroot gel, and pappardelle with new-season Blue Mountains chestnuts dressed with Abilene Grove olive oil from Mount Canobolas, just west of Orange.

To take advantage of RM Williams Bespoke, a custom boot-making service that was launched this month, guests will also receive a pair of personally fitted and custom-made boots.

RM Williams Weekend Experience, Friday 6 May to Sunday 8 May, $2,480 per villa per night twin-share. To book, call Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley on (02) 9308 0500 or email reservations@oneandonlywolganvalley.comoneandonlyresorts.com/one-and-only-wolgan-valley-australia.
