Jugiong is a village community on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, in the Hilltops Council Local Government area. It is situated just off the Hume Highway, by road, about 30 kilometres southwest from Bookham and 40 kilometres northeast from Gundagai. At the 2011 census, Jugiong had a population of 303 people.
It was first settled in the 1820s when Henry O'Brien started grazing sheep on the Jugiong Run.
Bill Bovill working closely with Trevor Banks was the first artist to release a song about Jugiong. Australian cricketer turned commentator Richie Benaud spent part of his early life there.
Jugiong Post Office opened on 1 October 1856.
