Junee is in the Riverina district of New South Wales.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

Junee is at the crossroads of the old NSW train network - and is still a significant stop on the line between Sydney and Melbourne, and Sydney and Griffith. It seems 2 services each way most days, and the Griffith train goes down from Sydney on Saturdays and returns on Sunday.

By car[edit]

Get around[edit]

By bike[edit]

Junee has a very well developed cycle path network for a country town, and being in town with a bike for a few days is a practical way to get around. The federation pathway leads out to the showground, and the Licorice Factory. You can cycle through the wetlands.

See[edit]

  • Roundhouse Museum, Harold St, Junee. Junee has a great history as a railway junction town. The roundhouse was the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, and still houses a good collection of engines and carriages - may of which are open to explore.
  • Monte Cristo Homestead. This is billed as a Haunted House, but it's all marketing fluff. The house itself hasn't been maintained in many years, and most of what passes for exhibits are covered in dust. The garden is run down, and many parts of the house are closed off. You'll either feel ripped off, or if you're really into kitsch you may get into it.
  • Broadway Museum.

Do[edit]

  • 1 Licorice Factory. This is a hugely successful venture in Junee. Draws a real crowd. Make your own freckle or rocky road. Stop in for coffee or full brunch. Amazing hot-chocolates. Shop attached for interesting licorice chocolates. On weekdays witness the chocolate and licorice making.

Buy[edit]

Eat[edit]

Drink[edit]

There is no shortage of pubs in Junee

  • Junee Hotel. Probably the most historic of the town pubs. Dining room with an open fire in winter, and lovely high ceilings.
  • Red Cow. Great value food, with a casual local feel. Kids playroom attached to the dining area. Big red cow out front.

Sleep[edit]

  • Junee Motor Inn. Standard motel accommodation easy walking distance to the town centre.
