The Sydney Olympic torch relay in the year 2000 was one of Cessnock’s biggest events in living memory.
Cessnock had the honour of hosting the torch overnight on August 29, 2000.
More than 15,000 people turned out for the cauldron lighting ceremony at Turner Park.
The next morning hundreds of people lined the streets of Cessnock, Weston and Kurri Kurri to see the torch up close.
