Regional Heritage Transport Association - Junee Inc

LOCATION:JUNEE, NEW SOUTH WALES
Harold Street, Junee

The Roundhouse Museum is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who saw the need to preserve and restore rail heritage in Junee after the railways closed the Roundhouse in 1993.

From this group, developed the Regional Heritage Transport Association – Junee and the concept of creating a museum to display a history of rail in Australia and, in particular, its impact on the local region as well as a general heritage transport display, including farm machinery, cars, trucks etc.

Half of the Roundhouse is used for the Museum, while the other portion is used for its original purpose of reconditioning and building engines and rollingstock by Australia’s first private accredited rail company, AUSTRAC.

A large model train layout is also being restored, whilst on display.

The Roundhouse Museum is open for guided tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays from 10.00 am to 4.00pm as well as daily during school holiday periods. Special group tours may be made for any day by appointment.
