Junee is a quaint rural town set between rolling hills and the Murrumbidgee River just north of the City of Wagga Wagga.
With five local schools, excellent medical facilities, and a nearby university, Junee’s prosperity and mixed services economy is based on a combination of agriculture, rail transport, light industry and government services; in particular correctional services. Some of the interesting activities in Junee include fishing, swimming or sailing at Bethungra Dam and birdwatching at the Junee wetlands. Food and wine are also irresistible drawcards of the town.
Junee is about 30 minutes from Wagga Wagga and 6 hours drive from Sydney.
Qantaslink and Regional Express operate direct flights to Sydney and Melbourne from Wagga Wagga Airport on a daily basis to allow quick weekends away in the capital cities.
