Wantabadgery: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Oura Beach Reserve

Oura Beach Reserve is a great spot to take in the Murrumbidgee River.

Located around 20 minute drive from Wagga Wagga, the reserve is perfect for camping, fishing, or just enjoying a day out by the river with a picnic.

Pull up a seat on the Ageless Oura artwork, installed in 2016, which frames views of the river. Hand crafted by Wagga Wagga artist John Wood, these hardwood timber seats are framed by rust coloured steel rings which blend beautifully into the landscape.

Junee Railway Roundhouse

When officially opened in September 1947, the New South Wales Government Railways claimed it was the "largest roundhouse in the southern hemisphere".

The Junee Roundhouse, or loco, as it was called, was the last steam depot built in NSW and as such was the pinnacle of steam depot development in the state. Steam soon gave way to diesel power and Junee loco was accordingly modified and steam facilities removed.

The main feature, the roundhouse, remains. Centred around the unique 100 foot (33 metre) turntable are two sheds and 42 tracks including the high-roads and machine shop. Today the roundhouse is home to Junee Railway Workshop, a local company that maintains and repairs rolling stock and locomotives for hire and for other operators. Other parts of the roundhouse are occupied by Regional Heritage Transport Association Junee - Inc. who operate a museum dedicated to local railway history on the site.

Broadway Museum

The Broadway Museum is home of the Junee and District Historical Society.

Housed in what was the old Broadway Hotel, the museum has a variety of thematic displays using artefacts from the Junee area presented so as to provoke thought and interest in the history of the Shire and sometimes a little of the humour of the residents.

Also to be found are photographs and documentation dealing with the rich heritage of a rural and railway past and present, the families and their pursuits of business and sporting activities.

The museum is operated entirely by volunteers. Entry to the Museum is by way of Bettys on Broadway Coffee shop.

The Museum is also the new home to the Junee Visitor Information Centre.

Monte Cristo Historic Homestead

The finest colonial mansion in the Riverina and South West New South Wales, Monte Cristo was built in 1884, and is faithfully restored and furnished in the high Victorian era circa 1840 to 1900.

The homestead features a wonderful collection of antiques, an extensive carriage collection, as well as a wheelwright's shop which manufactures all kinds of carriage wheels.

Classified as the "Most Haunted House in Australia", visitors are dared to book for an evening ghost tour - they are extremely popular so you must book in advance.

They cater for bus tours, dinners and luncheons. Special functions can also be arranged in advance.

Enjoy a Devonshire tea and a living picture of middle class life in Victorian times. If you dare you can join one of the night ghost tours, but be quick as spaces fill fast.
