From 2 November to 2 December experience and enjoy a sumptuous feast at Sculpture in the Vineyards in Wollombi.

Festival organisers will be celebrating their success for the 11th year with Australia’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition.

It exhibits over 100 art installations throughout five temporary sculpture parks along the Wollombi Wine trail in the Hunter Valley daily from 10am until 5pm.

When the cellar doors are thrown open, over 5,000 visitors are expected to make their way to the area over the month for guided tours, workshops and food and wine tastings.

There are a number of specific events throughout the month such as the Art, Food and Wine Days held over four venues on November 10. At each spot, diners are treated to four courses of delicious meals matched with wines – all run by local art experts.

Each Saturday from November 16 you can book onto an Aboriginal rock carving twilight tour at Ngurru Bu, just be sure to book in advance to secure your spot!

Wollombi has plenty of other attractions on offer as well, such as scenic bushwalks and lookouts nearby and the beautiful Yengo National Park.

It’s a great place to visit for a weekend stay and have a good look around the area, so check out the Wollombi accommodation options and get some friends together for a weekend of wine, art, food and friends.
