Cessnock Local Area

Cessnock is the largest town of the Hunter Region and a country town at heart. This is a great place if you’re looking for the combination of creature comforts and fabulous rural scenery – a hub of shopping and amenities set against a backdrop of stunning wine-country scenery.

There are also significant historic points of interest, such as the Convict Trail, a conservation project to restore the national historic treasure that is the convict-built Great North Road. Cessnock is also renowned for its 1920s and 1930s architecture, with many well-preserved cottages, churches and public buildings on display, such as the Marthaville Arts and Culture Centre.

For more cultural fare, the Cessnock Performing Arts Centre and Cessnock Regional Art Gallery is a treat.
