Urban CBD

Cessnock is located two hours north of Sydney in the Hunter Valley. Originally a service town for travellers and farmers, its growth was due to the establishment of mining in the region. Enjoy wine tastings in nearby Pokolbin, one of New South Wales’ most vital winemaking areas and at the vineyards of the Lower Hunter Valley.

The town has a number of fine restaurants, guesthouses and galleries. Visit The Convict Trail, a conservation project that is restoring the convict-built Great North Road. Or enjoy the Marthaville Arts and Crafts Centre and the nearby historic town of Wollombi.
