A true foodie, Tim’s passion is creating extraordinary experiences for guests at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. “I wore a chef’s hat for over twenty years, and that obsession with delivering food and wine that blows guests away never leaves you”.

His vision is for Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley to be a culinary must-visit for locals and international travellers alike.
