Excellent bushwalking and nature trails are yours for the tackling in Yengo, Mt Royal and Wollemi national parks, World Heritage-listed areas that are not far from Singleton. Of course, wine touring is popular with most visitors, and you'll find plenty of cellar doors at historic Broke and along Hermitage Road in Pokolbin. Friendly Ballabourneen Wine Co is one such spot for a nice glass of verdelho or pinot grigio.
