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.

  • To start off, the tour guide Lawrence is a wonderful person, who is very accommodating and makes you feel very welcome. However, the entire tour went for WAY longer than it should have. About 45 mins ...  more »

  • Lovely old house and out buildings. Would be a pickers dream if all the old wares in the house and coach house were for sale. No unease felt by me however 8 year old didnt like it. Had a long chat with Mrs Ryan. Lovely lady. What they did to the house to bring it back from ruin was remarkable.
  • beautiful homestead...Ive been here a few times taking family for a look see..I did the night ghost tour just this year, was very interesting.
  • Visited Monte Christo Homestead a while ago, had dinner, the Ghost Tour, enjoyed desert and stayed the night. Dinner was good. Facilities/bathrooms are nice with the accommodation. Great guest accommodation, air conditioned. The Host Lawrence was fantastic. The owners are great people, they know all about the homestead's history and the former owners of the Homestead. Met Mrs Ryan too whom had tales to tell of things going on over the years. Was sceptical at first, but not long after arriving some unexplained things happened that I can't explain. Took lots of photos of which I shared on Google Maps of which I can't explain a few things, have a look for yourself; decide for yourself. Worth a visit to Monte Christo Homestead in Junee if you want to see and experience it for yourself. The ghost tour was worth it and something's were experienced that are not explainable. Interactions are different for everyone. Need to experience it yourself and make your own judgement. Even if just for the historical homestead, restoration and antiques. Feel free to click on helpfull. Thanks
  • 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.
  • Monte Cristo is a very special place, well worth visiting for many reasons. I cant wait to go back again.
