Cessnock is now the gateway to the Hunter Valley wineries

Both Pokolbin & Lovedale wineries are a popular wedding destination, and Coal d’ Vine View is some of the closest accommodation you’ll find that can suit large groups of guests.
Cessnock is located in the Hunter Valley region which brings with it lots of opportunities to explore the area. There are a lot of speciality stores and producers including wineries, beer brewers, cheese makers, chocolatiers, sweet makers and olive producers. There are galleries and tea houses as well as public gardens, picnic areas and tours.
Hunter Valley Gardens and Hunter Valley Zoo
While staying with us here at Coal d’ Vine View, there are a couple of things we really recommend visiting.
The Hunter Valley Gardens span 25 acres and ten feature gardens. Enjoy exploring the fragrant rose garden, take a rest above the 10 metre high waterfall in the Sunken Garden, check out the views at the lookout, and let the kids (young and old) enjoy the fairy tale characters in the Storybook Garden. With 8 kilometres of walking paths, there is plenty to see and explore.
The gardens host some great events throughout the year, including Snow Time in July where you can experience an icy wonderland of a giant skating rink, a 25 metre ice toboggan and the opportunity to build a snow man in the Snow Play Zone; Christmas Lights with millions of lights on display lighting up the gardens; and school holiday activities for children.
The Hunter Valley Zoo is a great day out for all of the family. It is just 6 kilometres from Coal d’Vine View. With lots of animals to find and an interactive walk through area. There is the option to feed kangaroos, touch a reptile, cuddle a koala and pat a wombat. Everyone will love the zoo. Take along a BBQ or picnic, and enjoy a full day out at the Hunter Valley Zoo.
Golfing and hot air ballooning
If you’re looking forward to a round of golf while on holidays, there are a number of great courses in the area. They include Stonebridge, Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club, Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley and The Vintage.
For those a little more adventurous, or looking for a romantic date while on holidays, we recommend booking a hot air balloon flight over the Hunter Valley. There are a number of companies that take flights over the vineyards early in the morning. It’s a great way to check out the area from another view.
Hunter Valley Wine Festivals
The Hunter Valley Wine Festival runs over two months – May & June – and features more than 70 events. Above all it is a great way to spend a day during these months. You can attend wine making master classes, vineyard tours and wine tastings. Also join a wine and food trail, cooking classes and more. There are also a range of Chef’s Plates events which let you check out some of the best restaurants in the area at set prices. Other events that happen during the festival include the Lovedale Long Lunch (great when visiting with a large group).
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to stomp in a bucket of grapes? The Cessnock Stomp happens in April every year. It’s a free event for all the family (you can take part in the stomping but there is limited places). You can help us celebrate our local wineries and food producers.
Concerts in the Vineyards and Performing Arts Centre
Pokolbin is the home over 10 concerts each year. They include: Day on the Green featuring popular artists you’ll know from growing up. Concerts are held at Hope Estate, Bimbadgen, Tempus Two and Hunter Valley Gardens. At less than a 10 minute drive from your accommodation this is a great way to enjoy a day with your partner, family or friends. Order a picnic hamper and wine, and sing and dance to your favourite tunes. There is a local shuttle bus that can pick you up and drop you off at designated points. It means you don’t need to worry about driving.
If you are looking for something different while on holidays to the area, in early October Opera in the Vineyard returns. It’s a great way to celebrate some of our local food and wine. While enjoying some of the top Opera performers.
Throughout the year, the Cessnock Performing Arts Centre hosts some great shows and performances. Because you’ve booked with us here at Coal d’Vine VIEW, make sure you check out what performances are on during your holidays.
Hope Estate and Bimbadgen (main concert locations) are only a 10-15 minute drive from your Hunter Valley holiday apartment.
Wollombi Valley and Broke Fordwich
Your Hunter Valley accommodation has the benefit of being close to a number of Hunter Valley towns. There are a few we really recommend checking out.
Wollombi Valley is a great day out, and is a great way to get off the highway on your way to Coal d’ Vine View. When driving from Sydney, take Route 33 Tourist Drive via Calga/Peats Ridge from the Sydney Expressway. Because this will take you through the township of Bucketty and then following the old 1840’s convict built route to historic Wollombi Village. Continue on Wollombi Road, through state forest, to Cessnock.
If it’s wineries you are after, a day trip to the Broke Fordwich region is sure to help. The region is home to over 10 cellar doors and a large number of restaurants and dining options. The area also produces some of the best fruit in the Hunter region, so make sure you visit some of the many farm gates selling fresh produce.
Wollombi Valley and Broke Fordwich is a 30-35 minute drive from your Hunter Valley Accommodation.
Just over an hour away you’ll find the towns of Nelson Bay, Salamander Bay and Shoal Bay. Where you can discover over 20 beaches, swim, snorkel, dive, whale watch and more. In addition you can also bush walk in Tomaree National Park, and enjoy the local restaurants and cafes.
It is only expected that when in the Hunter Valley you’ll have plenty of options to get out and discover the produce and wines grown and made in the area.
Port Stephens is a 1 hour 15 minute drive (86 km) from your Hunter Valley short term accommodation.
Cessnock is a great base for your Hunter Valley Accommodation. Close to wineries and with gourmet foods, historic sites and walking trails galore. You’ll enjoy being close to everything at Coal d’ Vine VIEW.

When we stayed there in Nov2016, it was putrid. Cat or dog hairs in rippled, scrunched smelly sheets, food and dust and underwear under beds and in lounge room. The kitchen was one big dripping pit, greasy smelly filthy toaster and utensils. . As nowhere else to stay with 2 elderly parents, we had to go and buy new linen and pillows for 3 beds, coffee mugs. We had to eat out as you would not use the stove etc. Finally retrieved a ladies wallet from under a chair cushion, which did not belong to us. Complained first 5 mins of opening door to the agent we let from. Waste of time. Full of excuses. Will never book a property from the Harris’ anywhere in Australia.
