Temora

Rich in heritage, Temora is in the beautiful Riverina region and known as the friendliest town in NSW. Aviation is a big drawcard and the Temora Aviation Museum is home to one of the world’s finest collections of flying vintage warplanes, including the only two flying Spitfires in Australia.

You’ll also see the only flying Gloster Meteor F8, CA-13 Boomerang and Hudson Bomber. Enjoy spectacular flying displays on the first and third Saturday of most months at the Temora Aerodrome, next to the museum. The magnificent Warbirds Downunder air show is held every two years.

The Temora Aviation Museum, Temora

Accommodation options suit a range of budgets. The town is 60 minutes’ north of Wagga Wagga and 100 minutes east of Griffith, and a scenic road trip from Sydney and Melbourne. You can fly into Wagga Wagga airport from Sydney or Melbourne and rent a car for the trip to Temora.

A great way to explore Temora is on a walking tour of the heritage buildings, from colonial to art deco. Pick up a brochure from the Temora Visitor Information Centre for a self-guided stroll through the streets. You’ll find plenty more things to do and see in this charming town and nearby villages.

Temora Rural Museum

Discover what life was like for pioneers and see the original family home of cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman at the Temora Rural Museum. Gold fever struck in the 19th century and the museum has a replica of the 7.3-kg Mother Shipton gold nugget and other gold rush exhibits from Temora.

Only 20 minutes’ drive west of Temora is the National Trust-classified Ariah Park, a 1920s heritage village. Amble along the streets and marvel at the architecture and browse shops for antiques, gifts and mementos. Pack a hamper and head for nearby Lake Arbotree, a pretty spot for a picnic.
