The nearby Hillsdale Orchard has more than 5,000 orange trees and hosts guided tours.

Bulga: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Bulga Bridge over Wollombi Brook


Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Bulga Bridge over Wollombi Brook. The Bulga Bridge is a representative example of Dare timber truss road bridges.

The Dare truss design is a variation of the Howe truss arrangement of the Allan truss design, substituting a pair of steel channels for the bottom steel chord and employing simplified bottom chord joints by eliminating the pin as used in the DeBurgh truss. By replacing the bottom timber chord with a steel member the structural performance of the bridge design was increased.

The Dare truss bridges have the highest survival rate of the five truss types, with 18 still in existence in 2009 (of the 44 built). In fact the first one, completed in 1905 over the MacDonald River at Bendemeer, is still in existence as a footbridge.

Heuston Lookout


Heuston Lookout Park was formerly farmland which was donated to the community by the estate of P.A. Heuston, specifically to be used as a lookout.

The Apex Club of Singleton in association with Singleton Council developed the site for both locals and visitors to enjoy.

The viewing platform is situated 60 metres above the Hunter River and looks west towards the mines at Warkworth.

Lake St Clair


Lake St Clair is nestled among the undulating hills at the foot of Mount Royal Range, approximately 30 minutes north of Singleton. The lake provides a premium outdoor leisure facility.

The foreshores of Lake St Clair provide attractive areas for picnicing and barbecues, and the road following the eastern shoreline on Carrowbrook Road is a particularly scenic drive.
