Where is Bonn Abbey and What is there to do?

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. Sitting between Pokolbin and Wollombi, Broke played a critical role in the development and history of NSW.

Minutes from some of the best Vineyards and Golf Courses (the Vintage & Cypress Lakes) in Australia stands the village of Broke. It is at the base of the Brokenback and Hunter Ranges on the Wollombi Brook. The massive Yellow Rock escarpment stands guard above. The Ranges shelters Broke Fordwich from much of the rainfall that surrounding districts receive. The area has a sandy loam with river flat alluvial soil, volcanic soil and pockets of red basalt giving wine producers a variety of soil types known as terra rossa.

Today Broke Fordwich is still making history. In 1994 it was the first area formally recognised as a separate viticultural The village of Broke is at the base of the Brokenback and Hunter Ranges on the Wollombi Brook. While, historically, it is one of the oldest wine growing areas in Australia, it is only in the last 30 years that Broke Fordwich has started to become an important player in the Australian industry.

Today, more than a quarter of the Hunter's wine grape production now comes from the area and Broke Fordwich wines are winning more than their fair share of national and international awards.

Importantly, Broke Fordwich retains its integrity as a rural community remaining free of large scale development yet offering first class B&B and self catering accommodation, restaurants and activities.

Visitors to the area are surprised by the amount of wildlife they see. It's rare to visit the area without seeing kangaroo's, wombats and a huge range of birds.

Some of the vineyards currently in the area include Cockfighters Ghost Vineyard, Hope Estate, Broke Fordwich Wine Co Pty Ltd, Beyond Broke, Broke Estate, Poole's Rock, Mt Broke, Catherine Vale, Bacchus Estate, Krinklewood, Tinonee, Elysium, Elsmore and Nightingale Wines. There are also some wonderful Olive Groves where you can taste the local olives and oils.
