Going inside the old trains was awesome. I really gained an understanding of how our trains have changed and developed over time. A very interactive museum in this way, kids would enjoy it! We saw how the train roundabout works as well. Definitely worth a visit.

Great roundhouse with lots of different rolling stock and locomotives. You are able to walk inside most of them too! Be warned its very dusty. Take eye refresh drops and a puffer if needed.

For years, as I travelled on Melbourne-Sydney trains, I saw the Junee Roundhouse as we passed by. It didn’t take long on the Internet to find out that it was still an operating roundhouse, and that it had a museum attached. Railway buff that I am, I instantly put it on my bucket list. It’s taken me years to get... More

the guys loved visiting the museum and were fascinated with the operation of it all. Good for young and old, and a unique attraction not only for Junee, but for Australia. It needs to be promoted as historical evidence of our country's past.

I was pleasantly surprised with this museum. The museum member on duty on Sunday was highly knowledgeable about the roundhouse's history and all the museum exhibits. We were able to climb and enter all of the engines and carriages on show as well as looking at the large amount of railway memorabilia. This is definitely as must for families, with... More

So many positives: Being in a smaller country city (Junee) you will not have to deal with crowds. Very well priced. Authentic roundhouse, under cover. You can climb on to every engine and carriage. A small, working model railway. Lots of memorabilia and some of it not too far in the past. A little tricky to find so make sure... More

Everything...great history and fun. Staff were informative, hands on attraction. We spend quite a long time looking and enjoying all the attractions from the Diesel engine to old steam train. Young or old would find this lovely museum worth a visit.

Certainly worth visiting for a $6.00 entry fee for adults. It is run by volunteers who are trying to keep this place alive. You can actually sit in the drivers seat of the locomotives or go on the old carriages as a passenger back in time.

Well worth a visit to the Junee Roundhouse, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere when built around the 1940's, and still in operation today. We had a very knowledgeable young man show us around giving a running commentary on everything we saw.
