Whether it's a weekend of wine tasting in the Hunter Valley Wine Region - famous for it's Semillon, Shiraz and Chardonnay wines, a romantic weekend getaway, a concert in Pokolbin or to take in one of our many local cultural events, Historic Wollombi Valley and the Broke Fordwich Wine Region offer a different view of rural life in the lower Hunter and a more tranquil place to stay on your Hunter Valley visit.
See images from the area on the Flickr Wollombi Page and add your own local images to this page by geotagging them (plot them on the map) when adding to Flickr.
This website is aimed at a local audience (but you're most welcome to look around) so following are some more appropriate websites for visitors looking for tourism information.
See the most comprehensive Wollombi Valley Accommodation Directory available online (over 70 places to stay) along with the Restaurants and Cafés or Bars, Pubs and Clubs listings in the Wollombi Valley Business Directory and even things to do while you're here in the Wollombi Valley Events Diary, including details of Wollombi Markets, and the other Wollombi Valley, Central Coast Plateau and Hunter Valley Markets in the district.
If you're interested in the history of the Great North Road see the Convict Trail website, or for details of most of the major concert events in the Hunter Valley see the Rover Coaches website. If you're looking for an historic country wedding, the Wollombi Weddings website may help.
For information on visiting the greater Wollombi Valley, see the Broke Fordwich Tourism Association website.
Of course, many visitors fall permanently in love with our valley, so if you decide a permanent tree change is for you or maybe just a weekender, you'll also need Wollombi Real Estate to find your perfect corner of the valley.
Enjoy your stay, and drive carefully to protect yourself, our wildlife, and your car! High speed encounters with our many wombats, kangaroos, wallabies and wallaroos are simply not negotiable, but our prolific birds, turtles, possums, snakes and lizards along with our extremely rare koalas and quolls are far too precious to waste as roadkill.
Having said that, foxes, rabbits (and the odd scarecrow) are fair game :)
