It is a leisurely 2-hour drive from the (Central) coast to the (Blue) mountains, but our final destination is still about another hour away in the midst of the valley. We follow the windy steep hill through ‘The Gap’ down to the valley floor, the scenery changes dramatically to gravel road and native bushland with kangaroos lazying about. Before we know it, we have arrived at the main entrance. A security guard quickly comes and greets us as he has been expecting our arrival. He instructs us to leave the car at the carpark as he will send someone to come and pick us up momentarily. An olive green four wheel drive is slowly approaching us from the distance not long after. A handsome young man dressed in RM Williams tailored staff uniform steps out of the car with the biggest grin on his face and welcomes us to the Wolgan Valley resort.
