Welcome to Broke Fordwich, a tranquil rural experience with authentic quality wines, scenic accommodation and the ideal getaway.
Nestled in the foothills of the Broken Back Range is the intimate community of Broke Fordwich. There are high quality boutique wineries and olive growers and a range of quality accommodation, restaurants and cellar doors in this corner of the Hunter Valley.

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 Hunter Valley wedding.
