Just a couple of things you need to know and this is more a disclaimer on our part.
We face an open dam which sometimes has kangaroos -- dogs and kangaroos do not mix well. Also there can be the occasional snake, particularly in the summer months just for your info.
The driveway goes onto an open road where there is a part that is not fenced. There is no fence down to the paddock and creek, so may not be ideal if your dog likes to roam.

Around a two hour journey from Sydney and just over 60 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, 10 minutes to the heart of Pokolbin for the best wine tasting and restaurants in NSW. For the golf enthusiasts, two of the best and most challenging golf courses in Australia (the Vintage and Cypress Lakes). Also near great Wedding Venues such as Adams Peak and Margan.
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 the 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 Hunter’s 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 it’s 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.
