Gallery: Wolgan Valley Resort: World’s First CarboNZero Certified Hotel

 

With Valentine’s Day approaching, wouldn’t it be nice to escape for a few days with your loved one and relax in pampered luxury – without feeling guilty about the huge footprint you are adding to the environment? The world class conservation-based Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa in the Blue Mountains, located just a 1.5 hour drive south of Sydney, Australia will provide you with luxury AND a guilt-free carbon-neutral experience! It’s the first hotel in the world to achieve international carbon neutral certification through carboNZero, so you are in for quite a treat.

Nestled at the foot of towering sandstone escarpments in the Great Diving Range, The Wolgan Valley Resort is a sight to behold. The stunning resort is constructed from a mix of hardwood timbers recycled from local rail bridges, fallen timber, old fencing posts, timber sourced from renewable sources, and local stone. Upturned root balls have even been strategically placed in surrounding paddocks to act as natural sculptures on the landscape.
