Wollombi (including Laguna and Bucketty)
A picturesque and historic rural village in the mountains south of the Hunter Valley
Wollombi is a very small but picturesque and historic rural village. Where many country towns appear slight and ephemeral Wollombi's modest size is offset by its substantial 19th-century sandstone buildings. Its considerable charm arises in part from the quality of its architecture but also from its leisurely feel and its idyllic location within a small and pretty valley which is rife with the sound of birds and ringed around with imposing tree-lined mountains.
Wollombi is 29 km south-west of Cessnock and 142 km north of Sydney (take the Peats Ridge exit off the Newcastle Freeway).
