Wollombi and surrounds
Paddock Sessions #PS21 Happiness Edition
21 May 2021
When you come to Wollombi Paddock Sessions we recommend taking the opportunity to spend a little more time and take in the pleasures of the historic village, local wine tasting, amazing scenery and unique stores.
Experience rich aboriginal and colonial history, including rock carvings, sacred Mount Yengo and the convict-built Great North Road, museum, and historical buildings, including Mulla Villa Guest House complete with convict cells and ghost stories.
The name “Wollombi” is derived from the Aboriginal meaning ‘meeting place’ or ‘meeting place of the waters’.
Wine and Produce
A unique part of Hunter Valley Wine Country, the Wollombi Valley’s vineyards have been producing fine wines in this region since the 1850’s.
The vineyards and wineries of the Valley are small, boutique operations run by owner operators. The grapes are picked by hand. Wines are largely hand made in small quantities. The results are rare award and trophy-winning wines of exceptional quality.
More recently agri-tourism has found it's way to the area and for those looking for something different & more interactive when it comes to planning a getaway there are a few opportunities in the area. Don't miss Moore Farm Fresh Produce roadside stall on the Great Northern Rd (just about halfway between Wollombi and Laguna).
And thank you ABC News for an excellent feature on one of Wollombi/Laguna's favourite locals at Little Valley Farm, Laguna.
Historic Wollombi Village is worth the stroll, from the quintessential General Store and Tavern, straight from the early 1900's to local artisan stores. You shouldn't miss calling in to Century Salvage - at the Great North Trading Post, in nearby Laguna - where passion for sustainably preserving Australia’s industrial heritage abounds ..." we only source genuine old factory equipment and machinery to repurpose and transform them into beautiful and robust furniture statement pieces. No reproductions here! "
