Elevate an escape to the New South Wales countryside with a stay at a luxurious retreat. Whether you’re travelling as a party of two or 10, there’s an alluring array of premium accommodation options that’ll tempt you to enjoy an extended sojourn surrounded by some of the state’s most spectacular landscapes. Simply soak up the pleasures of the property, or venture out to uncover more local delights.

Get a taste of conservation-luxe in the Blue Mountains

Immerse in nature and reinvigorate your soul on an escape to Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, surrounded by the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, a three-hour drive northwest of Sydney. Appreciate the fusion of luxury and conservation at this 40-villa luxury resort set on 2,800 hectares of former cattle country, where the ongoing restoration of the natural landscape has encouraged the return of native wildlife. Spot kangaroos as you float in your private pool, melt into a spa treatment, and explore the property on a horseback tour or during a feelgood conservation experience, or jump in your car to explore the nearby historic Lithgow region. In the main lodge, savour multi-course meals crafted with produce sourced from regional farmers and vintners to provide a decadent taste of this serene slice of NSW.

Indulge a love of glamping in Mudgee

Revel in the romance of a getaway to Evamor Valley, set on a scenic farm alongside the Cudgegong River in Mudgee, a 3.5-hour drive northwest of Sydney, where luxuriously furnished glamping tents come with a plush king bed and a private hot tub with room for two. Or gather your friends or extended family and book all six privately situated tents on the property for a memorable catch-up. After a fun day exploring Mudgee’s delightful town centre and surrounding wineries, relax with a glass of your favourite local wine by the fire pit, cook up a feast on your private barbecue deck, or just while away an evening with good conversation, surrounded by nature.

Check into an ultra-modern farm stay in Bathurst

Experience a new kind of farm stay at Wilga Station, just outside of Bathurst in the NSW Central Tablelands, where the secluded Farmers Hut sleeping two blends beautifully into the surrounding landscape via a living grass roof. Enjoy luxe touches such as a designer bathroom, king bed, wood-burning fireplace and kitchenette complete with a gourmet breakfast hamper. Treat yourself to a lie-in and luxuriate in the mesmerising views across the 105-hectare working sheep from the comfort of your bed. Then head out to explore the elegant architecture of Bathurst, which is also home to Australia’s first purpose-built regional art gallery. Visiting with a group? Retreat to the station’s luxe, five-bedroom Shearers Hall, which sleeps 10.

Retreat to the foothills of Kosciuszko National Park

Marvel at the morning mist swirling through the Snowy Valleys when you wake up in Nimbo Fork, nestled between the Country NSW towns of Gundagai and Tumut, 375km southwest of Sydney. Choose from one of six charming standalone cottages overlooking Tumut River, or check into one of six upstairs suites in the main lodge, which was refurbished in 2023. After an invigorating day exploring the rugged wilderness of Kosciuszko National Park or trying your hand at fly-fishing, tuck into a wholesome feast at the onsite Three Blue Ducks restaurant, lauded for its dedication to sustainable dining.

Savour country elegance in the Hunter Valley

Lean into the relaxed luxury experience at Spicers Guesthouse in Pokolbin, where a recent renovation has given the Hunter Valley wine region property a fresh contemporary uplift while preserving the welcoming spirit of the original guesthouse. Begin your stay on a high note with a hot air balloon ride over the vineyards, perhaps followed by a refreshing dip in the infinity pool overlooking serene bushland. After a day exploring the region’s cellar doors and restaurants, enjoy the convenience of settling in for an evening meal at the in-house éRemo Italian restaurant, or take a seat on the terrace to enjoy a lighter meal before retiring to your elegant, muted-toned room.

Gather with loved ones in the Southern Highlands

Make new memories with your favourite people at Burrawang House, a designer five-bedroom, 14-guest holiday home in the Southern Highlands hamlet of Burrawang, under two hours’ drive south from Sydney. Enjoy leisurely days lazing by the nine-metre pool, and cosy nights catching up over a glass of local wine beside one of the thoughtfully furnished property’s three fireplaces. Flex your culinary skills in the huge high-end kitchen, or head out for a meal at the renowned Burrawang Village Hotel pub or Burrawang General Store Cafe, just a short stroll away. Enjoy the ease of striking out into nature, with Morton National Park’s breathtaking Fitzroy Falls just a 10-minute drive away. Wine lovers, meanwhile, can uncover more than a dozen cellar doors in the area.

Kick back with kangaroos in the Central West

Feel a renewed sense of freedom as you take in the uninterrupted views of the surrounding plains from one of the four Sky Suites at Callubri Station, a luxury outback farmstay experience outside the Central West NSW town of Buddabadah. The property is an ideal stop on a road trip from Sydney to Broken Hill – sign up for a fascinating farm tour, or ask your hosts for a map and head out to explore the 1,153-hectare property on foot, by mountain bike or by car, followed by a restorative dip in the 12-metre mineral pool. Spot birds of the Aussie bush while sipping a sundowner, then head back to the station to savour a three-course dinner under brass chandeliers in a former officer’s mess from World War II. The property also offers an accessible River Suite.
