There are many local wineries in the Wollombi Valley or venture a little further to the heart of the Hunter and Pokolbin. Wollombi is a gorgeously quaint convict built town with a historic gaol and courthouse, now a museum. Visit the Wollombi Tavern and enjoy the famous Dr Jurds Jungle Juice. The Great North Road in Laguna and Wollombi is also spotted with artistic sculptures, including the giant ants of the The Great Northern Trading Post in Laguna. There are also several properties in the Hunter Valley to enjoy horseriding. If you are lucky enough to stay for a long weekend, the Wollombi Markets are a must see!!
