Hunter Valley Attractions

Forestry Hut – Sawyers Gully

Tocal Homestead – Paterson

Tocal has one of Australia’s finest collections of colonial farm buildings dating from the 1830’s. The Homestead is open at weekends from March to November.

Important rural heritage because much, including barns, stables and the original residence built in 1822, remains intact. The Homestead (built in 1841) is set on a 2200 hectare property encompassing natural wetlands, dry sclerophyll forests and rainforest remnants. The Homestead is presented in the context of original outbuildings and sheds that contribute to the fascinating story of Tocal.

Farm tours provide an opportunity to experience the beautiful 2200 hectare property. The tour includes the beef, horse, dairy and sheep enterprises as well as the natural features of the historic landscape. Tocal is a working farm so visitors are able to view the seasonal activities of the farm operations www.tocal.com.

Our Roots

Great Wine Starts In The Vineyard

We believe that all great wines begin in the vineyard. Our strong vineyard focus is something that sets us apart from many other wine producers. From the careful selection of our vineyard sites more than 20 years ago, and the planting of varieties and clones that take full advantage of the soil and climate, to the judicious management of these blocks in the years since then, we are able to ensure that we consistently deliver the best fruit possible to the winery every year.
