TEMORA

Temora is again one of those NSW towns that seem to have managed its future and citizens wellbeing successfully.

The first white settlers arrived in Temora about 1850 and when gold fever hit after 1879, the population swelled to about 20,000 people. Once the gold boom subsided, many miners moved out, while German settlers and a new wheat industry moved in. Nearby Aria Park was the site, in 1916, where grain was loaded in bulk at a railway siding for the first time in rural Australia.

The Air Museum is without doubt the key item of interest in Temora, but the town in itself has a lot to offer. Temora Airpark Estate offers the highest level of convenience for aviation enthusiasts and their families - offering direct access from home to hangar to the runway, all within a few hundred metres, in a modern estate layout with all the services and facilities required to service  a prosperous rural community.

Temora is also  home to the Rural Museum where you can find the original family home of cricket legend, Sir Donald Bradman (moved from nearby Yeo Yeo siding), a replica of the 7.3 kg Mother Shipton gold nugget and vintage agricultural machinery and steam engines.

The Temora War Memorial is set I the Memorial Park.

The churches in Temora magnificent turn of the century structures.

Temora has an abundance of hotels that highlight the town was once the centre of commercial and business traveler.

A great town that deserves a minimum of a day to enjoy.
