Sculpture in the Vineyards 2016

Last weekend I visited Wollombi with friends, to enjoy the ambience of the beautiful rural town and to take in some of the artwork from the Sculpture in the Vineyards festival. Naturally, I took my camera along with me. Our first stop was at the Trading Post in Laguna, a lovely spot to take a break and have a bite to eat. The art barn attached to the property regularly exhibits the work of local artists, not just at festival time. At the moment they’re showing the beautiful work of Loveritas Creations. Examples can be seen below and more information is available at www,

Exhibits for the festival can be seen all around Wollombi village, and there are more along the road to Cessnock and in neighbouring vineyards. In the centre of town, the Endeavour Museum and Old Fire Shed Gallery have a wonderful display of artwork, and there’s also an amazing collection of Indigenous artwork and cultural artifacts. We also visited the Undercliff Winery, which is showing an extensive range of sculpture, and while we were there we took the opportunity to taste some of the wine. To cap off the afternoon, we had a drink at the historic Wollombi tavern, famous for its Dr. Jurd’s Jungle Juice. It also has a great range of beers and a commanding view of the surrounding countryside.

The festival continues until December 4th. More information is available at
