Kurri Kurri

TAFE NSW honours the Wonnarua people, the traditional custodians of the land where Kurri Kurri campus sits.

TAFE NSW Kurri Kurri was established in 1982 near the heart of the Hunter Valley wine region. Positioned on 135 hectares of beautiful park and native bushland, this campus is certainly an inspiring place to learn. The TAFE NSW Kurri Kurri campus nurtures the success of Aboriginal learners. It’s developed a dedicated Aboriginal Learning Centre that features a carefully crafted Yarning Circle, nestled within a serene bush landscape.

The Kurri Kurri campus is the hub of sustainable innovation and viticulture excellence. TAFE NSW Kurri Kurri proudly showcases the award-winning 'Intuition' wine range created by Viticultural training centre students. In the 2023 NSW Small Winemakers Show, our 2018 Intuition Shiraz was awarded a Silver Medal. Meanwhile, the 2023 Intuition Sparkling Chardonnay took home a Bronze Medal.

At TAFE NSW Kurri Kurri, students learn new skills in training environments that reflect real workplaces equipped with industry-standard equipment. Experience sports turf management firsthand in a specialised centre or follow a passion for hospitality in a state-of-the-art training facility. Or maybe working outdoors is where a student sees their future? If so, they can gain practical experience with extensive heavy vehicle, plant, and auto electrical training facilities.

As a part of TAFE NSW Hunter and Central Coast, the Hunter Valley Hotel Academy lets students enjoy practical training in an operational hotel.
