Travel Tips for Singleton
I like to visit the Tourist Information Center, in places I am not familiar with. And even if I haven't been there for a while.
They will have all the information you need, to find your way to all the interesting spots, and often a lot of places we don't think of. Hunter Heartland Visitor Information Centre...

In 1820 John Howe led an expedition to the fertile valley of St Patrick's Plains. Many settlers followed and began raising stock on their grants of land. Within a generation the pastoral district was flourishing and traders also came to establish their livelihood.
A township grew on the banks of the Hunter River, taking its name from one of the original discovering party, Benjamin Singleton.
For the first one hundred years of its history the agricultural industry dominated the region. However, the discovery of vast resources of coal in the area has transformed Singleton into the State's largest producer of coal, giving the Shire a twofold industrial profile.
Singleton has evolved from a quiet country town to one of the most progressive commercial centres in the State, continuing to experience further mining developments, and is diversifying into other industries.
