Sebastopol is a village community in the north east part of the Riverina. It is situated by road, about 15 kilometres south from Temora and 19 kilometres north from Junee Reefs.

The village is located by signage on the Olympic Highway. Other than rural dwellings surrounding the village the only sign of a more prosperous past is a dilapidated building well past its prime and a well constructed brick Presbyterian church on the nearby Mimosa Road close to the intersection of Henrys Road.

It was named after Sevastopol, the site of an important battle during the Crimean War. Sebastopol Post Office opened on 7 March 1870 and closed in 1973.[1]
