The Historical Ghost Town of Joadja

The ghost town of Joadja is located in the Southern Highlands of NSW Australia, its has always been and always will be a privately owned town. The town was established in 1870 after a mining company started to mine for oil shale, and in the early 1900 the town slowly became a ghost town and left to decay.

These days the owner of Joadja opens the gates for guided tours a few selected weekends a year with a morning and afternoon tours at 11am and again at 2pm and tours last about 80 minutes. The tour is conducted with people movers, which is a trailer or two towed behind a 4wd with a commentary and plenty of information along the way and a few chances to get out and explore and get a few photos of this historical town. 

The tour wraps up with a tour of the Joadja Distillery and a chance to taste the beer. There is a cafe for snacks or a meal before or after a tour.
