Monte Cristo Homestead, Junee

3.4
#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. Make your Junee itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • A fascinating historical homestead that is well worth a visit. Monte Cristo bills itself as a haunted house. I have been here many times and experienced nothing. They also have a CD player playing spooky noises under a chair by the front door which doesn't lend credibility to the idea of this place being haunted. Having said all this many people do experience unusual phenomena at this house so maybe there is something paranormal happening. Whether you go for the ghosts or the antiques you are bound to see something of interest.
  • Pass, travelled from Adl to be extremely underwhelmed. If there were as many paranormal contacts as told by owner this place would be world renowned and in the world news weekly.
  • I was here about two years ago i had such a great time looking forward to coming back :)
  • 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.
  • An amazing experience, beautiful place to stay history was awesome!
