Cessnock is a Hunter Valley city surrounded by the suburbs of Nulkaba, Kearsley, Bellbird and Kitchener.

Cessnock was named after an Ayrshire Castle by the original landowner, John Campbell. The township developed from 1850 as a service centre at the junction of the Great North Road. The Cessnock Inn was established in 1856 and became a halfway house for people travelling between Maitland and Wollombi.

Industries during the period up until WWII included dairying, grazing, timber-getting and saw-milling, and manufacturing of earthenware pipes and textiles.

Why rent in

Cessnock is primarily made up of medium-sized family homes, along with a handful of smaller dwellings including terrace/townhouses and apartments. With the rural feel of a country town, it is home to several new estates and a number of public and private schooling options.

Vincent Street, home to Cessnock’s CBD, contains shops, eateries, banks and other everyday necessities; just off Vincent Street is Cessnock Plaza, featuring a variety of food, fashion, lifestyle and entertainment shops.

The suburb lies in close proximity to Hunter Valley Wine Country, which boasts vineyards and wineries, cafes and restaurants, festivals, music events, markets and family attractions.

Cessnock hosts regular community events such as Cessnock Stomp Festival and Spring Awakening, and offers easy access to Newcastle via the Hunter Expressway.
