Where we are

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 House!

  • 5 of 5

I recently took 4 colleagues up to the Hunter for some strategy meetings. The owners accommodated our bedroom configurations and had all the technology set up required to run presentations on great flat screen TV's. Whiteboard was provided as well. Everything we needed was in p,ace and the house was clean and had all the facilities. excellent property and great hosts - we will be back!

Hunter Moon and Cicada was the perfect accommodation for our group of 8 who stayed over the June long weekend. Both Colette and Mike were very pleasant to deal with, responding to emails fairly quickly and offering the best tips on where to go and places to dine. Little touches made the experience all the more memorable from freshly cut flowers to a welcome basket to the board games and trivia cards that kept the children entertained. The fireplace and jacuzzi topped off our weekend with a heater system in place keeping us warm through a Winter's weekend. Rooms were large and spacious with bedding configured to our liking.

This is a fantastic accommodation for those looking for a larger group. Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the jacuzzi to the woodfire to the available board and trivia games for the kids. Colette and Mike were very accommodating with bedding configurations and recommendations whilst little touches such as freshly cut flowers, welcome baskets etc. truly added to our experience. The heating system made it a perfect location for a cold winter's weekend. Thanks for a fantastic experience. We will be back!

An awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hunter Moon last weekend, a girls weekend for 12 people. The house was equipped with everything you could ever want. It was cold weather but the house was warm and cosy with the central heating and combustion fire in the loungeroom.

The Best Group Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Collette and Mike could not have been more accommodating. The property was amazing and we really felt at home. All the finer touches from the champagne in the fridge to the welcome music made it so special. They really do go above and beyond.
