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.
