Cessnock travel guide

4.1
Located adjacent to Australia’s oldest wine region, Cessnock takes a more down-to-earth approach than the tourist haven of Lower Hunter. 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. Note that the only real way of accessing Lower Hunter is by car, but car rentals within Cessnock are available. Be sure to take advantage of the great selection of budget-friendly restaurants located in the center.
