Temora

Temora is a town of 4,600 people and is based in the Riverina area of NSW, Australia.

Temora was born on the back of the gold rush (in fact, it was actually a pastoral station in 1847). Once gold was found in the area, a small viallge was formed and shortly after, the Temora Post office was founded on 1 february 1874. The town would thereafter be known as Temora. There was more people in the town at this stage than there was lodgings for the townspeople.

In 1897 the rail network was extended to reach Temora which opened the town to the other parts of NSW.

It is now a mainly patoral town as it is within the wheat belt of the Riverina, although the town boasts many other attractions, from the Aviation Museum to the Temora gift (foot race).

One of the main attractions to the town in the Fly-ins that are held almost monthly out at the airodrome, and attract people from all over Australia who come and fly in aerobatic planes and other collectors planes. The aviation museum houses many old planes and is a must see for anyone visiting the town.

Skydiving is also a big attraction in town with a skydiving schoool teaching those that want to jump out of a plane to do so with safety.

Temora has also been host to some sporting greats from Steve Reardon of Caterbury bulldogs fame to Trent Barrett, who played for the Australian Rugby League team.

At present, there are many places to stay in Temora from hotels, motels, caravan parks and bed and breakfasts, including the Country Carriage B & B which is a pair of converted train carriages that have been expertly fitted out as accommodation.
