Brunkerville occupies the most south easterly corner of the The Hunter Valley, combining a rich bio-diversity from several distinct eco-systems and micro-climates. Our studio grounds offer the best and safest picnic spots in the Hunter Valley, with wood bar-b-qs, tank water, and toilets.

Entry to the Studio is by gold coin donation. Large groups and those wishing to hire the cabins need to book ahead. Pick up our map to explore the surrounding Sugarloaf State Conservation Area
