CESSNOCK MOTEL

Explore The Region

Cessnock

The southern gateway to the Hunter Valley wine region. Cessnock is a city with many clubs, pubs and restaurants. It is a useful place to stay if you are on a fairly tight budget for your wine country visit.

Polkolbin

Pokolbin is about six kilometres west of Cessnock and is the heart of wine country. It is surrounded by vineyards, wineries, resorts, guest houses and golf courses which add to the choice of restaurants and cafes in the Cessnock region.

Wollombi

Wollombi is on the Great North Road, a back door to the Hunter Valley from Sydney. It is an old and pretty town established in 1820 and well worth the 60 kilometre return side-trip from Cessnock as a change from the vineyards. Unlike the Hunter wine area, which is set in rolling hills, Wollombi is in a wooded river valley. The town is very small but it has several heritage buildings of sandstone and slab timber built in the 1820’s.

Hunter Valley Wine Country has information offices on Wine Country Drive in Pokolbin. They have free maps and brochures of the area, accommodation guides and information on local tour operators that run tours of the wineries
