Commonly known as the Roundhouse Museum
Regional Heritage Transport Asscociation – Junee Inc. is a volunteer organisation which operates a very popular museum at one of the most significant transport heritage sites in regional New South Wales.
Junee Roundhouse is a unique facility which embodies the optimism, hard work and the determination of generations of rail industry workers and leaders. It offers us the opportunity to show our visitors the transport modes and technologies of the past and the role which a regional centre played in maintaining the national transportation service.
With our partners, Junee Railway Workshop, we also offer a view of a vital element in current railway operations – a working locomotive depot.
We also house an impressive model railway and memorabilia of rail past.
The Festival is a community-organised major event which has contributed to the local economy; driving growth, expenditure and showcasing local businesses.
From its inauguration in 2008, the Festival program has grown and so has its attendance from 2,000 to 4,000 in five years and was also the winner of the NSW Inland Tourism Festival Award for 2014.
Each year the Festival delivers its beloved rail and rhythm themed activities but continues to grow by creating new and innovative activities that broadens the market.
Riverina Schoolboys Rugby League Football Carnival have run a Rugby League Football Carnival on the first Saturday in August every year since 1943 with the exception of 2016 when the carnival was cancelled due to wet weather making the grounds and parking areas unusable.
