Junee has a long and interesting history. It developed rapidly when the main railway line arrived in 1881, being halfway between Melbourne and Sydney. The wealth of the Junee is reflected in the many grand buildings still standing today.
A town built when people travelled by rail, walked to the shops and strolled on Sundays, Junee captures the beauty and history of rural Australia and combines this with modern facilities, fine dining and great attractions.
While staying at the Crossing Motel, the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory, operated by Green Grove Organics, is well worth a visit. Also guided tours are available at “The Roundhouse Railway Museum” and Historic “Monte Cristo Homestead”.
