“If you imagine the Hunter Valley to be a big circle, then Wollombi is down the bottom on the left. Depending on how you arrive in the Valley, Wollombi could be considered a gateway to the Hunter, and this quaint little town is a picturesque place to start.
The road between Cessnock in the east and Wollombi is stunning: with rounded hills, thick with trees like fat green cushions. In winter the mist hangs between the hills, while wood smoke curls from picture-perfect wooden cottages along the way. There are many destinations a snap-happy tourist will want to stop on the drive.”
