Singleton
Hunter Valley's north western frontier.

Singleton is a charming town contained within a loop of the Hunter River in the state of New South Wales. Occupying a prime location just 80kms from the coast and the city of Newcastle, the town is a state transportation hub. Two major state roads, the B84-Golden Highway and the A15-New England Highway, merge just south of Singleton. The town's heritage 1860s rail station has services from both Sydney and Newcastle, while intercity buses also call here on their journeys.

In a tribute to the local region's temperate climate, Singleton is home to one of the biggest sundials in the world. Three urban museums trace local history, military actions and the legacy of the Sisters of Mercy Convent. The Club House Hotel is one of numerous colonial-style structures in the downtown precinct.

There are abundant attractions within easy distance of Singleton and these accommodation options make great bases for exploring. Appletree Aboriginal Area is a pleasant park offering activities such as hiking, swimming and horseback riding on the way to Wollemi National Park.

Wollembi is the northern segment of the Blue Mountains World Heritage zone and features dramatic landscapes, aboriginal cave paintings and rock art. Adrenalin junkies flock here to try their hand at canyoning. The Newnes Glow-worm Tunnel and Lithgow's so-called Zig Zag Railway are among other popular draws in the environs of Wollemi. Pokolbin is 30kms from Singleton and the centre of the pastoral Lower Hunter Valley wine producing district.
