Where the locals go and what the locals know

This page contains little known things to do around the wine country area that the locals know about and you might want to discover.  It is intended to help find the things that you are most interested in and get the most out of your visit. These things happen on a daily or weekly basis and may require booking ahead.  Each section is organised by locality (Pokolbin, Hermitage, Lovedale, Nulkaba, Mount View, Broke, Wollombi) to help find what is closest to you.

Any monthly, annual or larger events are  published on our facebook page, Handmade in the Hunter Markets, every Monday morning at 6am.
