Kurri Kurri is a classic country town in the heart of the Hunter Valley. Close to Newcastle and only a short drive to the Hunter Valley Vineyards makes Kurri Kurri an ideal central location. Initially developed due to the influx of the coal mining industry of the day, the area still acts as an important location for the industry and trade sectors of the local area. With lots of outdoor activities to be enjoyed the town also has a number of fantastic primary and secondary schools as well as a major TAFE campus.
