What's On at the Visitor Information Centre!
Always a hive of activity, the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre welcomes visitors from all over the world. Escape the heat, enjoy our cooler spaces and meet our friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Our visitors love snapping photo opportunities in our resident Hot Air Balloon basket, exploring our art gallery and indigenous crafts room, and browsing all the local produce and souvenirs in our gift shop. Come in for a wine tasting of Hunter Valley wines, or just escape the hot weather and enjoy our free Wi-Fi.
New for February
Our gift shop is very happy to be showcasing works from Australian anthropomorphic artist and children's book illustrator, Michelle Pike. Michelle’s works are vibrant, quirky and of good humour and we are sure visitors will love them and come back for more. Also new for February is the arrival of Hunter Valley Mortel’s Sheepskin Factory products. The team at the Centre are excited to be sharing this new stock with you which will range from rugs, cushions, teddy bears and more – all made in the Hunter region from quality sheepskins. February 9th sees the launch of the 2019 Cessnock Performing Arts season. It will be a night to remember for sure as The Maestro and The Diva, Brian Castles-Onion and Geraldine Turner, perform an evening peppered with song, wit and banter. Hot on the heels of The Maestro and The Diva will be the fun, energetic performance of The Sapphires when they perform on 26th February. This multiple award-winning musical play and film comes to Cessnock for the first time.
Romance Between the Vines
February is, of course, the month of romance; the Centre will become all things lovely as our annual Wedding Display unfolds. The display will be in the Centre every day – so come and ask questions, and design your dream Hunter Valley wedding! We look forward to helping you find the perfect venue, caterer, photographers, florist and transportation options to make your wedding dreams come true. The team at the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre are passionate about what we do and look forward to inspiring you to enjoy the Hunter Valley to its fullest.
