Located midway between Cessnock, Singleton and Maitland, Greta is largely a commuter town along with its neighbouring sister town Branxton. Both communities often share sporting teams and both provide for great access to the Hunter Expressway. Greta is a mixture of suburban residential lots as well as larger lifestyle and hobby farm properties and a lovely blend of period and new homes. This along with a thriving main street shopping area allows Greta to cater to families. A multi-national award winning Tidy Town, great pride is taken by the townsfolks of this community.
