Scone is nestled in the beautiful Upper Hunter and is famous for being the “Horse Capital of Australia”.
The district is home to the second largest Thoroughbred breeding area in the world and is also home to a cross-section of agriculture including cattle and sheep grazing, cereal cropping, dairies and boutique wineries. While there are no coal mines in the Upper Hunter Shire, the growing mining industry in the Muswellbrook and Singleton Shires provides plentiful work, a robust local economy and growing townships. Many mining employees and their families enjoy the work-life balance of living in the picturesque rural surrounds of Scone
