A Little Bit of Broke 2024

Coinciding with the bicentenary of Broke, this year’s 20th anniversary is going to be bigger and better than ever with a record number of festival offerings and 16 fabulous locations taking part in this multi-venue festival.

Think dining in a hatted restaurant, picnicking with alpacas, sunset wines and tunes, exploring the largest organic kitchen garden in the region, learning the art of bee keeping, trying your hand at cooking, and indulging in a foot scrub made using local botanicals.

Or, you could sit back and take in the spectacular scenery, overlooking some of the region’s most pristine vineyards, glass in hand.
