Cessnock City is a great place to live

Cessnock City is the home and gateway to the Hunter Valley vineyards, where vibrant country towns and villages lend a strong sense of place and community.  Whether you value the character of a heritage home, a rural retreat or want to create your dream home in a green new estate, you’ll find what you’re looking for at an affordable price.

Foremost is Cessnock's relaxed, rural pace of life. Cessnock City area enjoys a backdrop of natural and rural scenery. We also appreciate urban comforts, good coffee, café culture, alfresco dining and retail opportunities. Cessnock City offers an unrivaled friendly sense of community.

Cessnock has evolved from a series of coal mining villages to an exciting city at the heart of the Hunter Valley.  You may be familiar with our region’s renowned wine legacy and the legendary hospitality at our vineyards, along with the wealth of tourism experiences on offer.

It is an exciting time to be living in Cessnock City, with connections to major cities and services increasing exponentially. This is a highly liveable area with an attractive setting, a great range of services and a location where affordability parallels a strong sense of community.
