A Guide to Cessnock

Located in the nutrient-rich volcanic soils of the Hunter Valley, the home of Australia's wine-growing industry is ready and waiting for you to come and experience one of the country's most historical areas. From the colossal coal reserves acting as the foundations for the area's initial growth, to the vast vineyards that roll across the countryside and are the source of modern prosperity, there's a terrific diversity in this part of New South Wales that offers something for everybody.

Good to Know

Cessnock was once the major hub of activity where early European settlers connected with the native inhabitants of the area. It's a rich and difficult history where it rose to become Australia's premier coal mining region, before collapsing with the rising monopoly of oil and other fuel sources. Since then, Cessnock has expanded into the wine-growing industry to reclaim its former glory.

A Great NSW Base

Cessnock is the ideal location to base yourself to tour this part of NSW. From Cessnock you can strike out into the Hunter Valley for all the scenery you could ever need, or head to Newcastle, not only to admire the cityscape and urban pursuits, but to enjoy its fabulous 11 beaches, coastal walks and water sports. Australia's 7th largest city is just 52kms from Cessnock.

Things to Do and See

Werakata National Park - In the wilderness outside of Cessnock you can visit the Werakata National Park. The lush vegetation of the Hunter Valley makes the perfect place for you to participate in a variety of outdoor pursuits. Take a leisurely walk along one of the hiking routes of the park, before sitting down for a bite to eat at one of the many fantastic picnicking locations. Mountain bike riding and bushwalking are two other exciting past-times to experience whilst visiting Cessnock.

Vineyards of the Hunter Valley - A trip to this city wouldn't be complete without sampling some of the sweet and tasty wines of the Hunter Valley. In the outlying areas, a number of vineyards sit waiting for tourists to visit. Don't worry about making an appointment, most vineyards are happy for you to just turn up and take a tour. The Scarborough Wine Company, Ernest Hill Wines, and the Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard are just some of the vineyards offering something unique in the Hunter Valley. And don't forget to buy a souvenir bottle of vintage red to complete this memorable trip!

Hot Air Ballooning - The best way to view the beauty of the Hunter Valley.

The Vintage Golf Club - Play a relaxing round of golf at the Vintage Golf Club. This golfing paradise was designed by Greg Norman and gives you the chance to hit a hole-in-one before the sunset casts its orange glow over the immaculately manicured lawns of one of Australia's most popular golfing attractions.

Hunter Valley Gardens - Walk off some of the wine in your system by paying a visit to these botanical gardens. The first thing which strikes people is how well the designers have created this natural paradise. Flowers of all tones and shades mingle together in harmony to create a cornucopia of colour against the backdrop of various architectural masterpieces positioned throughout the garden.

Cessnock Heritage Walk - Given the history it's not surprising there's a good number of buildings on the Register of National Estate. If you want to view the best of Cessnock on foot, you can pick up a walking tour brochure from the Internet cafe on the main street.

Fort Scratchley - Travel outside of Cessnock for a day to view this slab of New South Wales history. This historic fort stands vigil over the coast of Australia, long abandoned by the Australian army in 1974. Originally, the fort defended the coast against a potential Russian attack in the late 19th century, but the attack never came. Take a guided tour of this storied military installation for a glance into Australia's martial past.
