Junee’s Broadway Museum
For railways Buffs Junee holds many fascinations but for you, the casual traveller, the Junee regional area teems not only with present beauties and historical buildings, but the past evidences of a wild and wooly bushranger era, of gold and quite incidentally the emergence of the “Great Southern Railway”.
Junee is situated almost exactly half way between Sydney and Melbourne at the junction of the Southwest line and in the northeast edge of the Riverina. Junee is not only an old railway town but also a centre of a ‘wealthy’ mixed farming region.
So you can see after all that, the Broadway Museum should hold a very complex history.
Housed in the old ‘Broadway Hotel’ (1914) on Broadway, the Museum is the showcase for “The Junee & District Historical Society Inc.” a group of several volunteers striving to preserve fragments of the region’s past both in artefacts, photographs etc — and we’ll chuck in the Bushrangers, Farmers and Golddiggers for good measure — plus the really interesting bits about the Railway.
All this in a beautiful Heritage Listed 100 year old “Pub With no Beer” — but hang on there, the old BarRoom is home to “Betty’s on Broadway” a very appropriate Coffee Shoppe and BYO snack bar. We believe tarrying a while in the Junee Shire will open your eyes — and our volunteers are only too happy to assist you in achieveing this outcome.
