Life at Cessnock is all about fun and friends. It’s a buzzing environment full of group activities and events such as our Skills for Life program and even tailored personalised programs to suit your specific needs. There’s something going on every day including recycling projects, sewing, fishing, arts, and outdoor men’s group organising meetups all week. Top everything off with an outdoor recreational area, break-out spaces, and kitchen facilities and you’ll always feel right at home.
Weekdays 9am to 3pm
Cessnock Hub microbusiness creates and sells reusable bee’s wax food wraps, bath salts, lip balms, and body scrubs. We’ll set goals for our microbusiness, figure out what we want to achieve, put our ideas into action, and where to sell our products. This is a great opportunity to connect with our local community, raise funds to do more great activities, and watch our hard work and entrepreneurial skills meet our business goals.
Touring and Exploring $10
Is it a bus, train or an automobile? No! it’s the super Sunnyfield tour and explore day. Grab your opal card and come along to explore our local communities. We will make a stop along the way to have a quick bite to eat and get exploring again. The program includes travel training and safe use of public transport.

Let the home cook have a night off. Each week we will prepare a big, beautiful dish in bulk, so that we can take this home to our loved ones to share and give our regular home cook a night off.
Snazzy Snaps $10
If you’ve got an eye for photography, this program is for you! Each week as a group you’ll pick a different subject and explore a variety of locations and capture your visual stories to add to our photo boards in the Hub.

Bring your own device or use the Hub camera or iPad.
Creative Creatures $5
Let’s let our creative juices run wild! Over the next 12 weeks, we will get our hands dirty, trying out many different crafts such as upcycling, woodwork, mosaic, tie-dye and more! You name it, we will try it. Bring out your inner Picasso!
Dance Fit $10
Let’s dance! Every week in the Hub we will take you through a fabulous, fun, guided dance routine to get your hips shaking and body moving. We will be sure to stretch beforehand, so we don’t break a leg!
Today, we will be going to the East Cessnock Bowling Club to try our hand at lawn bowls where indoor and outdoor greens are kept to extremely high standards. Over 12 weeks we will have an instructor teach and guide us on all things bowling, helping us to become pros.
We will be getting out and about in the community and collecting and depositing recyclable goods. We will use the money we raised and saved to purchase equipment for group adventures at the Hub. While learning about recycling and helping the environment we will also build money handling skills and work towards our fundraising goal.
Friday Frolics $20
This Friday program is for those of us that can’t sit still and can’t choose just one thing. We will be out and about every Friday ending the week with a bang. It could be a BBQ in the park, utilising the Hubs sporting equipment or a few friendly games of ten pin bowling. Every week will be a new adventure.
TGI Fridays $10
Time to relax and ease into the weekend. We’ve made it to the end of the week and that deserves some relaxation. We may do some light baking, have a milkshake party, get pampered or create some crafty masterpieces. Either way, you can sit back, relax and unwind from the week.
