Hunter Coalfields | 134th branch of the Ulysses Club Inc.
Cessnock lies in the Hunter Valley at the base of the Watagan and Broken Back Ranges, adjacent to the oldest wine growing region in Australia. Built on the road known as the Convict Trail, the original road from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, which was hand built by 3000 convicts. Named "Cessnock Estate" after an 1826 land grant, Cessnock became a major coal mining centre at the turn of the century, but only 1 coal mine still operates in the area today. The local name " The Coalfields" is now the gateway to the vineyards of the Hunter Valley.
We had our beginnings in December 2006 as the 134th branch of the Ulysses Club Inc. in Australia. We have rides around Cessnock in the Hunter Valley of NSW.
