Are you ready for Italy in Broke?

Italy in Broke 16 guests at WB lunchsmall

A Little Bit of Italy in Broke is just around the corner so here’s a few tips to help you get organised?


We’ve got heaps planned so you’ll need to stay the weekend. Have you booked one of our quaint cottages, farmstays or country guesthouses? We have a great range of tranquil, bush settings to choose from in Broke Fordwich or stay in the bustling centre of Pokolbin (only 15-20mins up the road).


Want to relax & enjoy the day without the concerns of driving? Rovers are once again offering their Shuttle Services. Park the car at McNamara Park & jump on board. The Shuttle runs throughout the event for the weekend stopping at all venues. You hop off at the venues you are interested in & then when finished wait at the “Bus Stop” for the next shuttle to pick you up & take you to the next venue – it’s that easy.

Rovers are also offering transfers from a range of accommodation venues & stops in Cessnock & Pokolbin, so if you’re staying in these areas book your transfer now. The transfers meet up with the shuttle bus so all you need to do is decide where to hop on & off!


Want to go home with a few tips & tricks? Take in a workshop & learn how to make gnocchi, cocktails, cook, preserve olives or impress your friends with your new found knowledge in the art of biodynamics & organics.

Several of these masterclasses & workshops require you to pre-book so get in now & save your seat!

Prefer to take a long leisurely lunch in a restaurant? Make a booking so you don’t miss out. Consider Margan Restaurant, Nightingale Restaurant or Mount Broke Restaurant. Want to pre-order an Italian Picnic Feast to enjoy at Greenway’s long table – book one now – you won’t be sorry.


The signature event of the festival is La Grande Festa in the Margan Barrel Room. This dinner is not to be missed and there are only limited tickets still available. Book this NOW for an evening of bellisimo food, wine & entertainment.
