Wantiool: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.
