Hunter moon is situated in the idyllic setting at the foothills of the Broke Fordwich mountains and between some of the best vineyards in the Hunter. Perfect spot for group or family gatherings or bridal parties. Hunter Moon has a large 10-12 person outdoor spa in a very tranquil setting which can be set cold or hot depending on the time of the year. The perfect escape at any time of the year. Set on 25 acres only minutes to great restaurants and wedding venues such as Margans, Nightingales, Adams Peak and the town of Broke. Sit on our decks and take in the views of vineyards and the kangaroos. Or stroll down and fish or paddle in the Wollombi Creek meandering around the bottom of the property. We can take 10-15 people depending on your needs. Sit by the roaring fire or relax in the Spa on those cold starry nights. Chill out in central air conditioning on a hot day and take in the view down to the brook and out to the vineyards.
Around a two hour journey 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.
Next door to boutique vineyards and near the olive farms of Broke , 15-20 minutes to the heart or Pokolbin for the best wine tasting and restaurants in NSW and for the golf enthusiasts, two of the best and most challenging golf courses in Australia (the Vintage and Cypress Lakes). Near great Wedding Venues.
Broke Village 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.
Today Broke Fordwich is still making history. In 1994 it was the first area formally recognised as a separate viticulture. Whilst 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 Hunters 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

Excellent wine country location
Perfect place for a relaxing weekend away. Couldn't have asked for me. The place was wonderfully appointed and well situated.
Thanks Georgina and hope you can visit again one day.
Everything was perfect during the weekend away. They thought of everything to make it amazing and i definitely recommend going there again.
We really enjoyed out stay at Cicada it had everything we needed. Very comfortable beds fully equipped kitchen and fabulous country atmosphere. We had a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for us relaxing music and hot spa ready to go all fantastic for our girls weekend. There are two great wineries on the same road had a fabulous lunch at nightinggales which has georgeous views. Would definitely stay again.
A perfect stay for my 30th!
Absolutely love this house for a perfect stay in the Hunter. I was celebrating my 30th birthday with 8 guests. The jacuzzi was great and the massage chair what a bonus!
Everyone slept so comfortable and the house is stocked with everything you could possibly need. The property is beautiful and so peaceful. Thank you!
Thanks and good to hear you enjoyed the jacuzzi and massage chair - it is hard to not keep repeating the massage! warm regards Colette and Mike
Beautiful place to stay...
Very comfortable stay.. all the creature comforts available,
A group of 9 of us (late 20s) stayed here last weekend and we had a great time. Colette (and Mike) were super helpful, the property is beautiful and the hot tub and fireplace are highlights!
It's not located in the centre of Pokolbin if that is what you're after, but if you don't mind a short drive into town it's great for groups (would suit friends and/or families)
I would definitely come back again.
Thanks again Colette and Mike!
Hi Simon Many thanks for your great review and we look forward to your return visit. We always say why go to Pokolbin when you have 11 cellar doors and now 3 restaurants in Broke without the fights of Pokolbin crowds. cheers Colette and Mike
