Singleton Information

Singleton is a small town in NSW with a population just approaching 14,000. Situated on the banks of the Hunter River approx 183 kilometres northwest of Sydney, Singleton dates back to the 1820s and retains many historical buildings such as the Courthouse, built in 1841.

Other notable architecturally relevant structures include several church buildings such as Saint Patricks, the Convent of Mercy and All Saints Church. In addition to these fine buildings, the surrounding area is home to some of the best examples of 19th century Mansions and Aristocratic homes. Places like Neotsfield, dating back to 1828, the elaborate Baroona from 1829, Abbey Green and the incredible Minimbah at Whittingham.

Within the small town of Singleton you will also find a large number of traditional Aussie pubs, three museums, Wollemi and Yengo National parks to the south and Barrington National park bordering the north of the shire.

For outdoor lovers, Lake St Clair is perfect for Boating and Camping whilst a short trip to the southeast will enthral wine lovers with excellent wineries as close as Broke and the amazing Pokolbin wine region, the most famous in the state. Historically, Broke Fordwich is one of the oldest wine growing areas in Australia with plantings dating back to the early 1820s.

Singleton is also home to one of the largest sundials in the world, donated by a local coal mine to celebrate the 1988 Bicentennial. Local history is also prominent in the area with Appletree Aboriginal area about four kilometres south of the town and the popular Baiame Cave at Milbrodale featuring stunning Aboriginal artwork.

If you enjoy your holiday destination with screaming kids and runaway teenagers, Singleton is not for you, but if you are looking to capture images - either in your mind or on film - of panoramic beauty, incredible architecture and a view of the cultural past, Singleton is the place to visit.
