Cessnock Overview

Cessnock is a city in the Hunter region in New South Wales, Australia. It lays about 150 kilometers north of Sydney and west of Newcastle.

Once know for the coal-industry, the area now is most known for the vineyards in Hunter Valley covering over 4,000 acres. The city is a good start-point to explore the area and go for one of the many wine-tastings at the local wine-yards or just stock up your wine-collection.

The city was forst settled by Europeans in the 1820s, but the indigenous population goes back some 3,000 years.
