Local Area Details

Sitting between Pokolbin and Wollombi, Broke played a critical role in the development and history of NSW. The area also offers some of the best wining and dining in the State and below we have listed some of our favourites wineries and restaurants. For the golf enthusiasts, there is easy access to two of the most challenging golf courses in Australia: the Vintage and Cypress Lakes. We have also provided links to so you can learn more about Broke and The Hunter area.

Broke - a history
The village of Broke stands at the base of the Brokenback and Hunter Ranges on the Wollombi Brook. The massive Yellow Rock escarpment stands guard above. The Ranges shelter 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.
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. In 1994 it was the first area formally recognised as a separate viticultural area.

Today Broke Fordwich is still making history - 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 kangaroos, wombats and a huge range of birds.
