It's easy to find, as it is a very tall structure situated at the end of town. There is an information plaque close by about how it all works. Great photo opportunity, one of those big things in Australia. Been there seen that.

Really liked this one. Very simple but very accurate timepiece. If you're travelling with kids, get them to try to tell the time. Opportunity to get some good pics.

This was once the world's biggest sundial, but has apparently now been out done by someone else. An interesting stop if passing through Singleton, especially if you are into "big" things. You can park on Ryan Avenue or in the mall car park over the...More

This is an interesting place to visit that is also educational in that it shows how you can tell time by the position of the sun. Great for the kids. Short stop to visit but worthwhile.

The Sundial is next to a nice park, a decent shopping mall and a fitness gym. It is THE sundial and that's what it is. If you set your expectation right, you won't be disappointed. Just don't expect anything fancy.

Its not much, but always good to say you've seen the "worlds biggest" anything. It really works and is an educational experience for the kids.
