Only 30 minutes north of Wagga, Junee offers visitors the eclectic combination of chocolate, ghosts and trains.
Founded in the glory days of the NSW Government Railways and now home to some of the state’s most fitting tributes to those grand old locos, Junee combines old world charm with its modern lifestyle and culture.
You can make a giant chocolate freckle, dine on quality local produce, and sample (and stock up on!) organic licorice at the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory, located at the restored Junee Flour Mill.
The legendary Monte Cristo Homestead, Australia’s most haunted house, offers ghost tours and accommodation for those that dare.
Junee is home to the largest working railway roundhouse in the Southern Hemisphere. Opened in 1947, it is still in use today. The Roundhouse Museum takes visitors on a journey back in time and features steam and diesel locomotives, a 1940s accident crane, quadracycles, trikes and a mail car.
Make sure you visit the Broadway Museum and pop into the Junee Visitor Information Centre while you are there to make the most of your visit to Junee and find out about the surrounding towns of Old Junee, Bethungra, Wantabadgery, Eurongilly and Illabo.
Plan your visit to coincide with festivals and events such as the Junee Poker Run and Blues night, Junee Rhythm n Rail Festival, Riverina Schoolboys Football Carnival, Illabo Country Music Stampede, Bethungra Markets or the plentiful Junee Farmers Market that is on the first Sunday of every month.
