About Temora

Set in gently undulating hills covered with wheat, Temora is 420 km south-west of Sydney. This charming, close-knit community of Country NSW calls itself the friendliest town in the State. Discover the town's history at the Temora Rural Museum, where you can experience life as it was for early pioneers. Here, you can find the original family home of cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman as well as a replica of the 7.3-kg Mother Shipton gold nugget, vintage agricultural machinery and steam engines.

Take the kids to Temora Aviation Museum to see vintage military aircraft – plan your visit around the weekend when some of these rare planes are taken out for flights. Alternatively, take the Temora Air Show tour.

In nearby Ariah Park, you'll find the 1920s Heritage Village, with its attractive, nostalgic feel. Here, you can marvel at beautiful old architecture and shop for antiques.

There is some delightful accommodation in town, or stay in one of the nearby towns in the Wagga Wagga and Riverina area.
