Monte Cristo Homestead, Junee

#3 of 6 in Things to do in Junee
Famous for a number of alleged ghost sightings, Monte Cristo Homestead is a historic property constructed in 1885. This two-story Victorian house sits on a hill and offers panoramic views of the city. Originally owned by a local wealthy family, the property now operates as a museum, antiques store, and tourist attraction. Numerous reports of ghostly apparitions, strange lights, invisible force fields, and unexplainable sounds have given the house a reputation as one of the most haunted sites in Australia. Paranormal activity enthusiasts attribute strange happenings on the property to several tragic incidents that occurred over the years, including the murder of a caretaker in 1961. Enjoy an entertaining ghost tour at a house steeped in rich history and lore. Plan to visit Monte Cristo Homestead during your Junee vacation using our convenient Junee trip itinerary planner.

    So much history, so many stories and you can sense the energy in the place (some positive, some not so positive). We did day tour and night ghost tour and it was fascinating.  more »

  • An amazing experience, beautiful place to stay history was awesome!
  • Great old house, beautifully restored over many years. Olive still lives there and greets the visitors. Sadly her husband died a couple of years ago. Many great rooms to visit and spectacular views of countryside. Some sad tales about maid. Supposedly haunted, has reputation of most haunted house in Australia. The ballroom is a pleasant surprise near the end of the tour.
  • This estate viewed as Australia‚Äôs most haunted house. And no wonder considering the amount of deaths that have occurred here, tragic and violent plus accidental. There have been murders too. It could explain high paranormal activity throughout the estate. Do a tour - it is worth it!
  • I stayed here on a school exchange when I was 10/11 for a few day It was the maniquins that scared us kids coming through the stables 1 of ryans sisters came to stay with us x Memories Janet England
  • An interesting visit. I personally did not feel much, only a throbbing feeling in the temples, in the first room to the left. My friend had many weird feelings. The history in this place is fascinating and depressing. A must visit for the area, if not for the ghosts, but for the history.
