HighlightsSingleton’s majestic Lake St Clair sets the scene for a range of outdoor activities, from fishing and swimming to camping, waterskiing and sailing. Be sure to leave time to visit the area’s vineyards and cellar doors, and tuck in at one of the award-winning restaurants in Singleton and surrounds.
Singleton is a historic Hunter Valley town where you'll find a relaxing mix of country hospitality, nature-based activities, plus great accommodation, food and wine. Pick up a Heritage Walk brochure from the visitor information centre and stroll through the town's historic precinct. A tour of the Australian Army Infantry Museum is fascinating, with its historic collection of infantry equipment, weaponry and memorabilia dating back more than a century.
There are many things to see and do here from camping and boating to fishing at beautiful Lake St Clair. 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.
Be sure to check the calendar for local events and festivals. The Singleton Arts Festival is a biennial event that celebrates the art and culture of the area, while the Spring Festival of Flowers will delight gardening aficionados.
