Worth a Trip: Junee

Featuring a high concentration of impressive heritage architecture, Junee makes an excellent day trip from Wagga Wagga, 43km to the south.

A highlight is the Roundhouse Railway Museum. Built in 1947, the Roundhouse, a giant turntable with 42 train-repair bays, is the only surviving, working one of its kind in Australia.

Afterwards, visit the Junee Liquorice & Chocolate Factory for sweet treats, have a schooner of frosty beer on the sprawling heritage verandah of the Commercial Hotel, or stop for lunch at the interestingly retro Railway Station Cafe.
