Singleton

A main service centre in the Hunter Valley region for surrounding towns, Singleton is a prime location to stock up on those mental and physical resources for your journey around New South Wales. Browse around the quaint shops and stop at a traditional-style tearoom, the Aboriginal heritage sites, huge orchard and floral displays; stretching your legs around this sweet and sleepy place that’s a quiet country pleasure.

Visitors should take the Singleton Town Walk, visit the Singleton Historical Museum located in Burdekin Park and experience the local history dating from the early 19th century. See the world class collection of infantry weapons and equipment at the Royal Australian Infantry Corps Museum at Singleton Army Camp. Step back in time with a guided tour through the Singleton Mercy Convent which dates from 1893. The Chapel, Gardens and Georgian Cottage Museum are included in the tour offering a chance to learn the story of the pioneering Sisters of Mercy who arrived from Ireland in 1875.

Singleton is famous for food and wine. Visit the many wineries nearby in the Broke Fordwich Wine Region and taste the excellent local produce.

The mining and power industries are important to the Singleton economy, and escorted Mine Tours which include a detailed inspection of an open cut mine are available. Visit the Coal Industry Centre which has interactive display material, models and exhibits on the Coal Mines and Power Stations.

The settlement of Singleton began in 1820. By the 1860s, with the coming of the railway, the district rural industries increased and the town prospered. It was the development of the massive coal deposits in the latter part of the 20th century that saw an increase in the population and added to the expansion of the district

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
