Junee is a short half-hour drive from Wagga Wagga and is brimming with things to do.
Soak in the region's colourful countryside and beautifully preserved historical buildings dating back to the 1800s. Railway buffs will be mesmerised by the largest working railway roundhouse in the southern hemisphere.
For the outdoor buffs be sure to explore the Junee Urban Wetland, which is brimming with a variety of plants and wildlife. Whether you’re a true believer or just curious, Australia’s most famous haunted house – the legendary Monte Cristo Homestead – attracts people from across the world.
You’ll literally be like a kid in a candy store at the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory. It’s a popular spot for lunch and to grab some sweet treats to take home.
A short drive out of town and you can explore the natural beauty of Bethungra Dam and Sandy Beach Reserve, both great spots for camping.
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.
