Ultimate Australian Weekend Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley

I had the pleasure to photograph a fantasticΒ event at the Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort: The Ultimate Australian Weekend,Β a few weekends ago. We started off with a horse trail ride through the Australian bush on their property. The amazing Terry Goodear from RM Williams joined in for the horse ride. For those who don’t know, the resort has their own stables and horses, which if you stay there you can organise to go on horse rides. The horses they have are so beautiful, they even have two horses with different coloured eyes, one blue and one brown. So, so beautiful!!!

We stopped at a clearing for some damper and billy tea that was cooked on an open fire. It was such a relaxing rest top πŸ™‚ Then it was time to continue on theΒ trail. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day weather-wise, the sun was shining and it wasn’t too hot or too cold πŸ™‚

After the trail ride ended it was time for a long lunch hosted by Lennox Hastie of Firedoor, known for cooking on an open fire using different woods to flavour his foods and Nancy Kinchela, Wolgan Valley’s executive chef. The chefs ensured that they used local produce to create their tantalising creations. Nancy even grows her own herbs and vegetables which she uses in the restaurant. Whenever I meet up with Nancy she is always excited to show me what she has managed to get her hands on produce wise, last time it was a fresh truffle, *drooling*…..

After a wonderful long lunch,Β Terry Goodear and field guideΒ Lachie showed us some amazing whip cracking. It was really interesting learning about the craft behind it. They are truly masters at what they do! Even Lennox had a crack at it towards the end of he afternoon (pun intended ha!).

All in all, it was such a perfect weekend and I encourage anyone who gets the chance to go do it.Β Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley Resort offers a weekend like this once a year so do get touch with them here if you would like to join in on the fun next year! πŸ˜€
