About Us

The bi-weekly Singleton Argus publishes in excess of 50 pages a week, covering issues as diverse as the coal and wine industry, local community concerns, entertainment and sporting news.

The Singleton Argus has established an enviable reputation for its coverage of the Singleton Local Government Area and is the only local paid circulation in that region.

Discovered in 1820 and built on the rich alluvial land bordering the Hunter River, Singleton experiences sought after growth and development in lifestyle, industry and technology.

Thirty four vineyards, the Australian Army School of Infantry, dairying and agriculture co-exist in harmony with 16 mines rich in coal. Singleton Mines employ over 4000 people. 1700 of these live locally. The value of local residents' annual wages is $92 million.

This unique coexistence of diverse industry, close proximity to the major centres of Newcastle and Sydney augers well for a vital economy and provides an ideal forum for the area's fast developing tourist market.
