Monte Cristo Homestead, Junee

3.3
#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.

  • I love this place... and you would have heard its HAUNTED and if you didnt know, then you do now. For $12 if you are only doing a walk throughout the homestead during the day, it is absolutely worth it. They do also have dinner tours and overnight stay tours and a ball once a year.. (check the website for dates and prices), if you think you wont be spooked, then go for it... but it pays to ring and book in advance!!.. Even though I missed out on the dinner tour I was happy just to go during the day and walk in and around the house with my video camera and my partner taking photos at our own leisure, the walk around took us about 1-1.5hrs. The house inside and out is magnificent, the Ryans did a wonderful job restoring it back to its former glory, we also had a wonderful chat with the lovely owner Olive which we had a privilege to meet in the gift shop. So people if you ever in Junee and up to visiting ghosts then go and pay Monte Cristo a visit, its worth the trip back in time. Enjoy.
  • I absolutely loved this place and I will definitely be back to do a sleep over I have some fantastic photos which I will bring up to show you. Not only did I experience something but the whole town is amazing I love junee definitely will be back
  • 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.
  • Helene Crawley, seen here as the teacher at Illabo State School in 1883, was brought up at Monte Cristo in Junee.
