The humble environs and people of Cessnock may prove a nice alternative to staying in the region's epicenter. And don't worry, you won't miss a beat: basing your holiday in Cessnock gives you more affordable options with plenty of amenities, plus easy access to all of the wine-tasting and guided tours that places like Pokolbin offer.
