In Temora, community is everything. Have you ever been to a cinema run entirely by volunteers ranging from teenagers to retirees? At Temora’s Town Hall Theatre you’ll not only be treated to the latest flicks, but warmly greeted by a group of wonderful volunteers.

Temora’s history, supported by generations of artisans and craftsmen, is on display across the Shire’s four museums.

Many visitors are impressed by the healthy relationship between the town and the council. Temora’s myriad of meticulously preserved historical buildings are testament to the joint efforts of council and community working together for the common good.

In a world where fast is often prioritised over friendly, you’ll soon discover this is a town that truly deserves its title of the friendliest in NSW.

History

Before European settlement, the area of land now known as Temora was occupied for some 60,000 years by the Wiradjuri people, whose nation spanned an area reaching as far north as Nyngan, right down to Albury in the south, and from Hay in the west to the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the east.

Temora values its Indigenous past. Willo’s Wiradjuri Keeping Place (pictured) at the Bundawarrah Centre, pays respect to traditional Wiradjuri culture, working to preserve an understanding of the society that was part of Temora’s landscape prior to white settlement. ‘Willo’ was a Wiradjuri youth who befriended one of the first European settlers to lease ‘Temora Station’.

Many creeks, forests and townships around Temora bear names resembling Wiradjuri words.

Temora began as a pastoral station in 1847 but was not officially named as a town until it had become a hotspot for gold miners in 1880.

Gold was first found in the region in 1869 and by 1879 over 20,000 people had descended on the town in an effort to stake their claim. The population dropped dramatically at the end of the gold rush, but the town of Temora had been established and some of the buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s remain, at least in part, in today’s landscape.

Take a wander through the streets and you will see Edwardian, Federation and some Art Deco period buildings. Be sure to visit Ariah Park where you’ll find some impressive architecture and streetscaping dating back over a century.
