History & Heritage

Junees's history and heritage is truly something that is inspiring. From when it first....

Just like back in the day, Junee, NSW is a bustling hub, set against an elegant architectural backdrop, nestled amongst pleasantly rolling hills

Founded in the glory days of the New South Wales Government Railways (NSWGR) and now home to some of the state’s most fitting tributes to those grand old locos, Junee happily combines old world charm with its modern lifestyle and culture. Why not take a walking tour and discover Australian history, through Junee.

What an incredible storm #junee just experienced. This AMAZING image was captured by local photographer @struantimmsphotography
A dogs work is never done! This handsome fella was captured by @reggiekelpie on their property in the Bethungra region, located within the Junee Shire.

Not only does Bethungra have some pretty spectacular scenery but its also home to the heritage listed Bethungra Rail Spiral and Bethungra Dam. 

We love seeing your incredible photos so share them with us by tagging #youmeandjunee
The Junee Rotary Sunday Market is on this weekend.

From 8am to 12:30pm on Sunday at the Junee Ex-Services Memorial Club, enjoy the fresh air as you browse the stalls offering plenty of local produce including baked goods, bread, relishes, and of course plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, too.

That's one happy young lady!

Have you checked out the Junee Regional Adventure Park? This fantastic facility is an all-inclusive and extensive playground. Located at the Junee Regional Sporting and Recreation Hub, the park provides a fun and inclusive outdoor space for local kids and visitors to Junee. The park includes a sensory play area with Aboriginal plantings, and a special purpose swing for those with disabilities.

Have you been dreaming about beautiful fields of gold… we certainly have.

As we see easing of restrictions for some areas of Regional NSW, just in time to catch these amazing flowers out in bloom, we want to remind you, if you’re taking photos of the the canola fields around the region do take care not the trespass on private property. The photos are just as Insta-worthy from outside the fence!

Our friend @struantimmsphotography recently captured this amazing roadside shot in the #Junee Shire.

Train enthusiasts come from everywhere to visit Junee and these would have to be two of the cutest. Love your shot @scottsloan 

If you’re a bit of a gunzel just like these gorgeous pups you’ll love what Junee has to offer. From the historic Roundhouse Rail Museum to the heritage listed Bethungra Spiral, Junee has it all.

After every storm comes a rainbow! This stunning image was captured by @lisamprice with the beautiful caption:

“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Did you know the stunning heritage listed Athenium Theatre in Junee was built in just five months! Construction commenced in May 1929 with the building officially opened on the 10 October 1929. Pretty amazing don't you think!

Want to know more about the Athenium, maybe even take a sneak peak inside (believe us you will not be disappointed), then head on over to www.atheniumtheatre.com

P.S. did we mention the Athenium is available to hire.

It’s August, and you know what that means, right? Canola season is here! We’ve been dreaming of those bright yellow fields all through winter 🌼 Around the region the canola is starting to flower, and over the coming weeks, we’ll start seeing more around. August and September are generally the best time to see them so grab some friends and family and start planning for a springtime @canolatrail adventure (if you can). Be sure to share your shots with us using #youmeandjunee for the chance to be featured!

P.S. This spectacular shot was taken last year by talented local @struantimmsphotography.

P.P.S. The most important thing to remember if you’re taking photos of the stunning canola fields around the region? Don’t trespass on private property, not only is it illegal, you could damage or expose the crops to disease. The shots are just as Insta-worthy from outside the fence, we promise!

If you're like us and LOVE freshly baked, hand made and fresh-picked local goods, than a trip to the Junee Rotary Farmers Markets should be on your list.

The markets are held on the first Sunday of each month (this Sunday) from 8am to 12pm in the carpark of the Junee Ex-Services Memorial Club.

COVID safety procedures will be in place and mask must be worn.
Calling all chocolate lovers!
 
What better way to spend World Chocolate Day than with a visit to Junee’s world famous @juneelicoriceandchocolate. With so many deliciously amazing products to choose from you may find it difficult to stop, but who cares it’s World Chocolate Day and it’s a free pass to consume as much chocolate as you like (just ask Neil).
 
If you cant make it to the Factory don’t despair you can grab all your chocolatey goodness online by visiting www.juneelicoriceandchocolate.com
Back in April this year, Junee had the absolute pleasure of hosting the magnificent locomotive 3801 as it embarked on a tour of Southern NSW. For those lucky ones that got to jump on board for a ride, what an amazing experience. Well done @transportheritagensw 

Want to see more of it's journey? Check out this fantastic video capturing the 3801’s time in the Junee Shire. Follow it as it travels from the historic Junee Roundhouse Museum and through the incredible Bethungra Rail Spiral.
We love living in the country where all roads lead to wide open spaces and amazingly stunning scenery, well all roads maybe bar this one (yes there is a road there somewhere).

Let us introduce you to panicum effusum or as it’s more commonly referred to as hairy panic or tumble weed, although we’re sure there’s a few other names the locals like to call it but we’ll just leave it at these ones....

Nothing says summer quite like zippin' down the slide at the @juneereccentre. Our idea of a perfect summer Saturday is exploring around town in the morning, a lunchtime swim + slide to cool off, followed by an afternoon visit to the @juneelicoriceandchocolate Factory... It's kind of a scientific fact that swimming makes you hungry, right? 🍫

The slide operates on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 'til 2, right through until the end of February, and five bucks will get you unlimited rides for that session. We'll be sure to save you a spot! See you soon. #youmeandjunee
