Dr Jurds Jungle Juice
Born about 10 miles from the Tavern in 1929, Mel Jurd purchased the Wollombi Wine Saloon in 1957. Legend has it that Mel, in his efforts to keep costs down and revenues up would save all the leftovers from the night before and pour them into a single container. This becames Dr Jurds Jungle Juice, which has remained the trademark for the establishment ever since. Experience the infamous Jungle Juice – or take one home – at the Wollombi Tavern.

The Wollombi Quilt
In February 2007 Wollombi Stitch N’ Bitch group decided to create a community quilt. The guidelines were to create 30cm x 30cm squares depicting “something you love about our valley” Any texture was acceptable. All those who volunteered became busy knitting, stitching, quilting, painting, spinning, dyeing wool and experimenting with cameras, computers, mud, silk and feathers.
On June 9, 2007 cyclonic rain brought floods to the valley isolating properties, cars and people for weeks. It was feared that the quilt may have “gone under”. However fifty women and two men persevered to produce a quilt of fifty four squares depicting a wonderful diversity of, events and even catastrophes including wildlife, birds, flowers, poetry, wineries, historical buildings, bush fires, and the recent flood, as well as activities such as the Book Club, Tennis Club, Cricket Club and Arts and Crafts.
Next time you are in Wollombi, why not visit the Wollombi Quilt? You can see the quilt in the corridor behind Noyce Bros cellar door, within the Gray’s Inn in the centre of the village. Open 6 days a week (closed Tuesdays).
