Cessnock

Cessnock is located two hours north of Sydney in the Hunter Valley. Originally a service town for travellers and farmers, its growth was due to the establishment of mining in the region. Enjoy wine tastings in nearby Pokolbin, one of New South Wales' most vital winemaking areas and at the vineyards of the Lower Hunter Valley.

The town has a number of fine restaurants, guesthouses and galleries. Visit The Convict Trail, a conservation project that is restoring the convict-built Great North Road. Or enjoy the Marthaville Arts and Crafts Centre and the nearby historic town of Wollombi.

Cessnock: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Marthaville Arts and Cultural Centre


Marthaville Arts and Cultural Centre plays host to a wide variety of events, exhibits and activities including Wine Country Bear Club and Floral Art workshops. Marthaville Guildry has operated since 1996, displaying for sale a wide range of arts and crafts made by residents of the Cessnock area. The building is available for community groups and personnel.

Marthaville is the oldest timber sawn home in Cessnock and still retains many of its original piers, which have been treated to resist the ever present danger of white ants and borers. Under the galvanised iron roof, timber shingles can still be seen especially under the edge of the eaves near the ramp access point. Three of the rooms have retained their original fireplaces and cedar mantelpieces.

Cessnock: Events

David Strassman iTedE!


It's about time! Strassman returns with a brand new show, an evening of side-splitting comedy and riotous antics from Ted E. Bare and the malicious Chuck Wood.

Heralded as the artist who 'made ventriloquism hip again', Strasso's characters are a renegade band of puppets you wouldn't want to meet on a dark night.

And these characters really come to life. Ted is cuter than ever, and Chuck just as evil; the spaced-out Kevin the Alien lets you know who's really in charge, and Sid the Beaver cracks a heap of depraved jokes.

The best night out you'll have in long time!

They may even film it and put it on Youtube!

Warning: This show is Rated S for Stupid.

Ladies Night


The story of four unemployed guys, motivated by 'The Chippendales' to form a male stripping act, in order to make some fast cash. They pitch the notion to a local club owner and take lessons from a slightly shop-worn, dance instructor with a heart-of-gold in all manner of things, including what women really want from a male stripper (and how to deliver it).

Written in 1987, by Anthony McCarten and Stephen Sinclair, Ladies Night has been translated into twelve languages and remains New Zealand's most commercially successful play, of all time.
With eight sell-out tours of Britain and the U.K, it won France's premiere theatre award for comedy- The Moli?re Prize, in 2001.

Ladies Night will leave you hyperactive and ready to party! It's the kind of show that you can take your granny to ... Cheeky, fun, a little bit naughty - and a damn good giggle.

4000 Miles


21-year-old Leo rocks up unannounced at the Manhattan apartment of his 91-year-old Jewish grandmother Vera. Having broken up with his girlfriend and cycled across the country, he needs a place to crash for the night, no questions asked. But Vera - prickly, stubborn and sharp as a tack - isn't about to let him off that easily.

As an overnight couch-surf turns into an extended stay, 4000 Miles unearths a surprising parallel between these two generations in this emotionally compelling drama. With disarming frankness and surprising candour, the two negotiate social potholes and trace emotional fault lines that link them to a painful family history.

From one of America's brightest playwrights, this compassionate and unsentimental play explores the funny, frustrating, and ultimately life-changing relationship between a grandson learning to face his life, and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers.
