A twig broom, and old wooden barrel among the outbuildings at Monte Cristo … a beautifully restored historic home at Junee (NSW, Australia). Junee also boasts an amazing licorice and chocolate factory … !
This was a walk down memory lane as, 35 years ago, we visited often when this was a haunted (still is apparently!) old home sitting in a paddock on the edge of town. The original owners still live here, continuing to indulge their love of restoration and history, along with nine ghosts, and new homes climbing the hill in stark contrast to the stately old homestead and outbuildings.
