How to get there

Public transport

Rover Coaches have a limited service that runs from the Rover Depot in Cessnock to the complex. Please check the Rover Coaches website for a timetable.

From Cessnock town centre, it is a half-hour walk or 5-minute taxi ride to the centre.

Private transport

The entrance to Cessnock Correctional Complex is off Wine Country Drive, turn into Kerlew Street and Left to Occident Street.  The main entry gate is approximately 75 mtrs on the right.

You will need to enter this into any 'navigational' device, as currently most devices such as Navman, Google maps, Garman and mobile phone apps appear to use an incorrect access road.

Visitor information

All visits require bookings. Visit bookings can be made directly with the correctional centre
