History

For thousands of years prior to European settlement, the Wiradjuri people inhabited the area now known as Junee. The name 'junee' is believed to originate from the Wiradjuri language, meaning 'speak to me'. 

In the 1840s, the 'Jewnee' pastoral run was established, followed by the opening of a post office in 1862 and the official gazetting of the village in 1863 along the wool road to Sydney. By 1885, the town, initially known as Junee Junction, was formally named Junee, becoming one of the state's prominent railway centers with established local government by 1886. Notably, in 1952, Junee saw the construction of the largest wheat terminal in the Southern Hemisphere. 


Junee boasts picturesque streetscapes reminiscent of a bygone era when architecture was characterized by grandeur and meticulous attention to detail. Each corner of Junee reveals elegantly preserved historical buildings, cherished and meticulously cared for over the years.

Nestled midway between Bethungra and Eurongilly, the Mitta Church and its historic graveyard stand as a testament to the area's rich heritage. Accessible from both directions, it offers a glimpse into the region's past.

While Junee is renowned among railway enthusiasts, its attractions extend beyond the trains. Visitors can appreciate the beauty of Australia's largest operational roundhouse and marvel at iconic locomotives like the grand old NSWGR 4403 diesel, the Travelling Post Office (TPO), and classic steam trains. Junee's Railway Museum offers a window into Australia's proud railway history, inviting all to experience the nation's past through the lens of its tracks.
