Where you’ll be

Cessnock, New South Wales, Australia

The largest town in Australia’s oldest wine region, Cessnock is the perfect place to explore acclaimed wineries and countryside. Begin your adventure with a Hunter Valley wine tour or take a scenic drive and discover great family attractions, such as Hunter Valley Zoo and Werakata National Park.

There are many fun wine tours, from shuttle services to personal chauffeurs, as well as local self-guided maps from the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre. Begin with a visit to Briar Ridge Vineyard for a diverse blend of boutique wines and Hunter classics, or sample Hunter Beer Co’s delicious craft beer at Potters Hotel Brewery Resort.

At the acclaimed Bistro Molines, just outside of town, you’ll experience an exceptional fine dining experience. For a delicious country pub, drop into the award-winning 221 Restaurant & Bar in the 1922-built Royal Oak Hotel. The 1904 Peden’s Hotel and the historic Abermain Hotel also offer delicious local fare.

At the Hunter Valley Zoo, hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies and get up close to koalas, big cats and meerkats. Bring the family for a picnic and enjoy one of the daily shows. Only a 15 minute drive from town, the Hunter Valley Gardens is an enchanting landscape the family can explore.

Architectural gems in Cessnock include a timber-sawn home, circa 1885, that now houses the Marthaville Arts and Cultural Centre.

In Yengo National Park you will see Aboriginal engravings at one of Australia’s finest Aboriginal cultural sites. There are also picnic spots in nearby Werakata National Park. From Astills picnic area a mountain bike track winds through spotted gums.

Hi, BnBCare is a small family run local business, that manages properties on Airbnb.

The Newcastle, Hunter Valley and surrounding areas are growing and thriving but still have a regional flavour. We've seen the region change and grow during our lifetime however it is still easy to get around - as we always say, there are about 6 different routes you can take to travel from one part to another. We love using the backstreets though because it is here that you can find a treasure.

We hope you enjoy the local areas as much as we do.
