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.

The scenic Broke Fordwich stretch of the Wollombi Brook has quietly developed into a quality wine tourism region where visitors can enjoy premium wines, fresh olive oils and innovative farm gate products, wonderful restaurants and cafes, luxury Hunter Valley accommodation, local wine tours, and most importantly, a tranquil rural experience which is far removed from the hustle and bustle.

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.

There’s also FREE CAMPING at McNamara Park right in the centre of the village. A large grassy campground with shady spots adjacent to the Wollombi River, surrounded by bush, and has basic facilities including picnic tables, rubbish bins and toilets.
