Where is Broke Fordwich?
Less than two hours from Sydney and 90 minutes from Newcastle, the Broke Fordwich area is in the southwest corner of the mid Hunter Valley. The Hunter Valley is quite spread out so it is important to have transport of some kind. There is a small airport in Cessnock for light aircraft only. The closest commercial airports are Newcastle (1 hour) and Sydney (2 hours). Hire cars can be picked up from both airports or in the Hunter itself. There are companies that run transfers from both the airports.
If driving from Sydney then there are two routes. One is via the M1 freeway and Cessnock, the other has winding roads and stunning scenery and is quicker so we suggest that you travel at least one way by the scenic route through Wollombi along Tourist Drive 33.
