Kurri Kurri

For seventy years, Kurri Kurri was the heart of the Hunter coalfields. The work of the early miners was notoriously insecure and for a long time the community reflected the transient nature of this occupation. Mining left the Kurri Kurri community in the late 1960's. The town has reinvented itself with shopping centre improvements and several new sub-divisions have been established, with many fine modern homes, contrasting but complimenting the simple charm of miner's cottages in the earlier sections of the town. With the introduction of the Town Mural project in 2002, the communitu is now attracting increased tourism. There are now 44 murals located throughout the town promoting the heritage of the community. This project is attracting increased visitation from Australia and overseas tourist and is now recognised as one of the world mural towns. Kurri Kurri also has several historical attractions, including churches, galleries and the Kurri Kurri Cemetery which includes mining monuments that honour those who were killed working in the mines.
