Pop 12,519; 186 km NW of Sydney.

Founded in 1820 and named after Benjamin Singleton, one of the first settlers in the region, Singleton is one of the oldest towns in Australia. Coal mining and agriculture, two of the more important industries for the town, and the Australian Army's Singleton Infantry Centre, have played an important role in the life of the community and its economic development.

Much of the town's main street and quiet back streets remain little changed from the last century. The Caledonian Hotel opened in 1853 and has a beautiful ironwork verandah. It was here that in 1900 the Aboriginal outlaw Joe Governor lay for his inquest after being shot and killed at St Clair to the north. He is buried just outside the cemetery at Whittingham

Not far from the town is the mammoth $240 million Liddell Power Station, which each year burns 6m tonnes of coal from two open cut mines.
