The town of Catherine Hill Bay, (located 50 kilometres south of Newcastle and 130 kilometres north of Sydney), has been placed on the State Heritage Register - the second town in the State to receive this honour.

Over the October long weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, the town is celebrating its Back to the Bay Heritage Festival at the Old Bay School.
