Nulkaba is a locality in the city of Cessnock, in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.


As early as 1829, land was set aside to build a church in school in the area now known as Nulkaba. St. Luke's Anglican Church was built in 1872, and the first school in 1877. "The Village of Pokolbin" was laid out in 1884-85, but was referred to as Cessnock, until that name came to be applied to what is now considered Cessnock, south of the village, and Nulkaba was used instead. The name of Nulkaba was officially adopted in 1927.
