Broke is a village of approximately 540 people in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia in Singleton Shire. It is located 157 kilometres to the north of Sydney on the original early colonial road from Sydney to Singleton (24 kilometres north). The village itself is seperated from the farming area of Fordwich by the Wollombi Brook - locally known as Cockfighter Creek.
The Broke area is well known for its boutique wine production and is usually referred to as the Broke Fordwich wine region - a prized sub-region of the Hunter Valley . There is also substantial open-cut and underground coal mining in the area between Broke and Singleton.
The village also holds an annual fair in September on the second Sunday.
Approximately 12 kilometres north-west of Broke is an 80-hectare site containing rock shelters with several Aboriginal paintings, which are thought to depict Baiame, the Sky Father who created the world through his dreaming. The site, which is on private property, is popularly known as Baiame Cave and is on the Register of the National Estate.
