Where we are

Less than two hours 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cicada Country House. Gorgeous property and just so serene. Will definitely be coming back to stay at this incredible House. Thank you very much Colette and Mike, for being so helpful and accommodating and for giving us the pleasure of staying. We would have loved to stay a few more days and I think we will be making our trip longer next time as the property was just so beautiful. Everything inside was immaculate and really made us all feel at home :) See you next time xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another wonderful Cicada Weekend! Everything that we could want was provided by Collette and Mike and we loved the new addition of the Massage Chair. It got a good work out along with the hot tub. We came 4 years ago and were not disappointed on our latest visit and will definitely be back. A perfect weekend in the best corner of the Hunter. Thanks Collette and Mike

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need for a large group stay Came for "Day on the Green" weekend with 9 couples and booked both homes. Property is out of town but thats how we liked it. Rooms were brilliant, large deck at Hunter Moon was well used, along with the spa. Relaxing surroundings added to a great weekend. Thanks Collette for great communications and help with booking tours etc. A must stay for those looking for a large group venue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Weekend Retreat! We came as a large group (with kids) to stay for a concert and this place over delivered. Mike and Colette take pride in their service, from the second you make the booking they are close at hand to answer any questions and prepare the house beautifully on arrival. This is an excellent space for a comfortable stay with a lovely kitchen and large dining space. Hot tub can't be missed too!
