Singleton was founded in 1820 on the banks of the Hunter River and is a quintessential country town with a delightful mix of old and new.
Historic buildings… fine old mansions… museums… the picturesque Hunter River… throw in boutique wineries, grand old pubs and a bustling farmers’ market, and this proud old mining town sure has a lot of appeal.
You can pick up a heritage walk brochure from the visitor info centre and take a stroll around town at your own pace to check out some of the oldest and most beautiful cottages and homesteads. Then, of course, there’s the Singleton Historic Society Museum, the Sacred Spaces Museum at the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy and the Royal Australian Infantry Corps Museum at the nearby barracks to visit.
Singleton's CBD precinct has recently been revamped and the main street has a smorgasbord of antique and vintage stores, cute cafes and pubs where you can dine on the freshest of ingredients grown in the lush pasturelands that surround the town.
You can also take a tour of boutique wineries and olive groves, head to the walking and watersports territory that is beautiful Lake St Clair, or take your photo next to the Singleton Sundial – one of the world’s largest.
When it comes to accommodation, Singleton is known for its hospitable hosts and cosy comforts. Whether you stay in five-star luxury accommodation, a tent by the lake or an easily accessible caravan park, crashing out in Singleton is dead easy.
