Delight your tastebuds and stir your curiosity in Junee, a pretty railway heritage town in the beautiful Riverina region and home to the splendid Junee Roundhouse Railway Museum. You’ll find plenty of things to do, see and taste in Junee, only 30 minutes’ drive northeast of Wagga Wagga.

Tour the roundhouse, the last steam train depot in NSW. When the roundhouse was built in the 1940s, it had the Southern Hemisphere’s largest turntable. The turntable is one of the few still operating. The annual Junee Rhythm ‘n’ Rail Festival in March celebrates the railway heritage as well as local wines and produce with steam train rides, music and excellent food and wine.


For a sweet adventure, visit the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory and see how delicious treats are made. Taste local fresh produce at the Junee Farmers Market, held every second Sunday of the month. Wine lovers will enjoy wine tasting at the cellar door of Houlaghans Valley Wines. Browse locally produced gourmet delights and hand-crafted gifts at Bethungra Old School T-House.

Places to stay include motels, bed and breakfast and a tourist park with cabins and caravan and camping sites. You can even stay in a tastefully converted red rattler rail carriage at Junee Rail Carriage B&B. For the complete railway holiday, take a train from Sydney or Melbourne to Junee.

Junee Railway Cafe, Wagga Wagga and Riverina

By car, Junee is halfway between Sydney and Melbourne. You can fly into Wagga Wagga’s airport and rent a car for the scenic drive to Junee. A great way to explore Junee is on foot. Pick up a brochure at the Junee Visitor Information Centre in the Broadway Museum for the self-guided Junee Heritage Tours. The walking tours begin at the museum, which houses the Betty’s on Broadway cafe.
