At our cellar door, you can enjoy free wine and mead tasting, and watch a mead-mulling demonstration. You’ll also discover original pottery (including traditional mead beakers & wine vessels) handcrafted in our Womboota Artisan Pottery Studio, located next to the winery.
You’re welcome to bring a picnic or relax with a cup of coffee in the shade of century-old peppercorn trees in the cellar door garden, while the kids meet the Winery Chooks, or settle down with a book from the Winery Book Basket (there’s also a small public playground in the grounds of the Womboota Hall, just a few hundred metres down the road).
We’re open from 10.00am to 5.00pm every day except for Mondays, Christmas Day & ANZAC Day.
- Group visits are welcome, though there’s a small charge for larger (over 15) coach groups. We don’t have a café, but basic tea and coffee or an urn can be provided for groups by prior arrangement (please book several days in advance if this is required).
- We’re a pet-friendly venue, so please feel free to bring your dogs (as long as they’re kept on a leash and don’t hassle Felix, the Winery Cat!)
Our winery & meadery is located in the historic grounds of the old Womboota School, on the corner of School Rd and Moira St, Womboota, NSW, Australia. Womboota is just a 31km drive from the River Murray towns of Echuca (Vic) and Moama (NSW).
If you’re interested in history, it’s also worth taking a few minutes to explore the quiet streets of historic Womboota Village. Established originally as a stockmen’s camp for the big pastoral property, Perricoota Station, Womboota was settled in the 1870s and soon had a population of over 80, with two churches, a hall, general store, bakery, blacksmith and village common. Now home to only a dozen or so families, Womboota still retains several of its heritage buildings, some of which remain in use and have been lovingly restored by locals.
Planning a visit?
The Murray River twin towns of Echuca and Moama could make a good base for your holiday. They have plenty of quality accommodation and dining options, and some great attractions, including Echuca’s historic wharf and paddlesteamers. For more information, head to http://www.echucamoama.com.
If you’re in the area for a few days, why not explore some of the Backroads Trail? You’ll discover the rich history, delicious produce, wildlife and wide horizons of the south-western Riverina. The Backroads Trail is a regional touring route established a few years ago by a group of local farmers and artisan producers. It takes you off the beaten track, from the tall redgum forests along the river, to the farming country of the Riverina plains. Photographers and artists will find plenty of inspiration in the area’s landscape and historic buildings. There’s also many good locations for birdwatching in the area, especially along Perricoota Rd, and in the Womboota Arboretum (opposite the Old School Winery).
Along the way, you can experience the historic charm of tiny villages like Womboota and Bunnaloo; and the small riverside towns of Mathoura, Barham and Koondrook (former sawmill towns, now building a reputation for their regional produce). The towns also offer a range of accommodation, including free camp sites at Mathoura (contact the Mathoura Bowling Club for more information). Camping is also available in some of the area’s magnificent redgum forests.

History enthusiasts will also enjoy a visit to the town of Deniliquin, famous as the historic centre of Australia’s Merino wool industry. It’s now also a rice-growing region, and is widely known for the famous annual Deni Ute Muster and music festival
