Pokolbin is a rural locality in the Hunter Region of NSW, Australia. It is part of the Singleton Council area and the city of Cessnock and is bounded by the localities of North Rothbury and Greta in the North, Keinbah and Maitland City in the East, Cessnock, Nulkaba, Mount View and Bellbird in the South and the locality of Cedar Creek in the West.

Pokolbin is thought to be named from a native word meaning “very hot place” or a Hungarian name meaning ‘in the hell’.
Settlement of the area dates from the 1830s when settlers harvested cedar and rosewood forests. There was some growth in the 1850s and 1860s, with land used mainly for wheat, tobacco and grape growing. From the 1960s the wine industry began to boom, with vineyards at Allandale, Mount View, Pokolbin and Rothbury, and small cottages and farms used mainly as weekend retreats. These are now the focus of a thriving and growing tourism industry. Considerable growth took place from the mid 1990s as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly in Pokolbin.

Pokolbin and Lovedale area is mainly a rural area, with some growing residential areas.

Major features of the area include Pokolbin State Forest, Cypress Lakes Golf and country club, Bimbadeen Lookout, Hunter Valley Gardens and numerous wineries and vineyards.
