The Tranquil side of the Hunter Valley
Friendly locals, stunning scenery, fine Hunter wines, olives and olive oils, farm produce, seriously good eateries and great places to stay … what more could our visitors want? The reality is, they’d just like to stay longer.
The beautiful Broke Fordwich wine region is like a secret …one you can’t wait to share. And that, we believe is part of its true charm. Come and see why, or take the 'virtual tour' first with our YouTube video on the area.
The scenic Broke Fordwich stretch of the Wollombi Brook has quietly developed into a quality wine tourism region where visitors can enjoy premium wines, fresh olive oils and innovative farm gate products, wonderful restaurants and cafes, luxury accommodation and most importantly, a tranquil rural experience which is far removed from the hustle and bustle.
Situated in a wide section of the valley, the surrounding hills frame some of the best scenery in the area with the striking Brokenback Mountain Range and iconic Yellow Rock providing an impressive backdrop. The natural beauty of the region coupled with the great food, relaxed accommodation, skill and dedication of the locals has seen many couples choose Broke as the ideal place for their wedding.
Broke Fordwich is an easy fifteen minutes drive from the hectic centre of Pokolbin and about two hours drive from Sydney via the historic township of Wollombi, just over an hour from Newcastle. (click here for directions and map).
The Hunter Valley famously hosts international performers at major outdoor concerts each spring, summer and autumn - and Broke Fordwich is the ideal base with a shuttle bus service available for concertgoers.
