Singleton - Cities, Towns and Localities
Singleton is the geographic heart of the Hunter Valley and one of the oldest regional towns in Australia. Located just north-west of Newcastle, it is only two hours from Sydney by road, or catch the train (XPT) or a luxury coach ride from Sydney.

The Singleton district is home of the Wonnarua people, with the first European arriving in 1820. There is much of historical interest in the region that extends beyond the attractions of the wineries. There are three museums, historic buildings and many historic villages located in the region, including Belford, Broke, Bulga, Jerry's Plains, Warkworth, and Whittingham. For the more adventurous, you can make Singleton your base to visit Barrington, Wollemi, Yengo, Mount Royal, Goulburn National Parks and Lake St Clair.

Check out our listing of Singleton accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.

• April
• Singleton will be the only place to be on the 12th April 2008 with the Annual CountryFest. Featuring the Australian Wife Carrying Titles! Organisers promise the event will be equal to anywhere in the world and will rival Swedish and Finnish standards and the first prize will be a return trip for two to Finland to compete in the World Wife Carrying Titles and the best thing is that you don’t have to be married to enter!

The race track will be a minimum of 200 m in length consisting of hurdles, limbo bars, water course and a sand trap.

Also at Countryfest you will see the Professional Bullriders of Australia and Ute Muster on the Saturday as well as the Australian wife carrying titles along with, stalls, sideshow, bands, country bands, dog high jumps and much much more!

And if that isn’t enough to capture your imagination for the weekend, Peter Heffernan Fest organiser has been quick to add an Irish woman of 110 kg plus who has entered the wife carrying competition to raise money for the Children’s Cancer Institute. Local man David Vaughan has accepted the challenge of carrying Julia Galvin from Ireland.
