Earlier in the first part of my review of Emirates Wolgan Valley, I took you through our villa and some of the resort’s facilities, including the gorgeous pool. Today, I’ll take you through a (very condensed, packed) view of some of our favorite activities and dining while there, from morning to evening.

Each day at Wolgan Valley began with us walking to the main lodge for breakfast in the dining room! This is where we ate each morning and evening. It was a huge comfortable space where you could enjoy drinks and canapes by the fire, and then move on to the formal dining room for dinner.

Smoked and cured fishes/meats are my favorite.

I should mention that most activities and food at Wolgan Valley were all inclusive – meaning they were included in our room rate (standard for all guests). So there was lots of pigging out.

The water was incredibly clear – we were told that you could drink it straight from the stream, that’s how clean it was. We each took a little taste!
