Bucketty is a locality in the City of Cessnock local government area (LGA), in New South Wales, Australia. It is in the south of the LGA, immediately adjacent to the border with the City of Hawkesbury and Central Coast Council, in the Lower Hunter Region, about 105 km (65 mi) north of Sydney, and 55 km (34 mi) from Cessnock, New South Wales, the council seat. Bucketty is presumably the Aboriginal word for mountain spring.
Bucketty is situated on ridge of ironstone hills separating Yengo National Park from the Central Coast.
Bucketty has no services and the nearest general store is located in Laguna or Kulnura. The New South Wales Rural Fire Service maintains the Bucketty & District Rural Fire Brigade and the Fire Shed is the social centre of the town. When rural addressing was introduced, the numbering was based on the distance from Broke, some of the streets were also given names.
