Go wild

Get up and personal with the fastest land animals at The Wild Cat Conservation Centre in Wilberforce. This personalised, private tour will take you into the savanna, where the cats walk, run and explore their natural environment. With no fences between you and this incredible species, it really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Following your tour, you’ll be guided through the wildlife centre, where you’ll discover the smaller cats’ habitats, including the clouded leopard, caracal and serval. Here, you will learn about the conservation efforts to protect the cat species both in Sydney and overseas.

The Crowne experience

After your tour, enjoy sundowners at the Barracks Bar. Then, delight in your three-course foodie affair at the Harvest Restaurant, where you’ll be treated to contemporary Australian cuisine with Asian and European influences.

Dine on the likes of hand-pulled Burrata and char-grilled Fremantle octopus to start. Hearty mains of sous-vide spring lamb or crisp skin Snapper will titillate the taste buds. Finally for dessert, tuck into a lemon tart or a chocolate avocado mousse with coconut tuille, orange jelly and honeycomb.

Before retreating to your luxury King Premium room, wander around the lakeside gardens for the perfect end to a fabulous evening.

Rise the following morning to an alfresco gourmet buffet breakfast guaranteed to leave no room for dissatisfaction. From fresh fruits and pastries to barista-made coffee. This smorgasbord spread in the sundrenched courtyard is the ultimate way to start the day.
