Muswellbrook, with its estimated population of 10,707 people, is one of the more populous towns in the state of New South Wales. Situated geologically on the northern edges of the Sydney Basin in the Upper Hunter Valley region (bordering the New England region), this country town is located 243 kilometres (about 264 kilometres by road) north-north-west of the metropolitan city of Sydney, the state capital. Established as a township in 1833, it is believed to have gotten its name from a nearby stream called Muscle Creek (the name Muswellbrook is a corruption of "Muscle Brook"). The area was discovered by Chief Constable John Howe in 1819.

Part of the Muswellbrook Shire Local Government Area, the town of Muswellbrook belongs to the State District of Upper Hunter (an electoral district in the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales) and the Federal Division of Hunter (one of several Australian Electoral Divisions). Muswellbrook was declared a municipality first in 1870.

Thanks to its history and culture, there is much to enjoy in and around the Muswellbrook area:

Horse-breeding enthusiasts can take their pick from several thoroughbreds supported by Muswellbrook Shire. The town also has its own horse racing facility, the Skellatar Race Course, which holds regular race meetings.

Tourists can experience Muswellbrook's very own Heritage Walk. This tour courses through important historic sites such as Loxton House, Bridge Street - North, Hill Street, Bridge Street - South, William Street, Market Street, South Muswellbrook, Hunters Terrace, and Bridge Street - Middle Section.
