East Gresford is a village in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia in Dungog Shire. The village is located 192 kilometres (119 mi) north of Sydney and the nearest major centre is Singleton, some 42 kilometres (26 mi) southwest. At the 2006 census, it had a population of 289.
There are actually two small villages with the name 'Gresford'. There is Gresford (or West Gresford) on the Singleton side and East Gresford on the Maitland side. It appears that Gresford is the original township, as it is older and the location of the school and local Anglican church. But East Gresford is much larger and has the main shopping area. It is also home to the Gresford Scorpions Soccer Club.
