In the heart of the NSW agricultural belt, Temora Shire is a community rich with heritage and resources. After gold provided the foundation for the first major settlement in the 1880's, Temora spread its wings to become more than just ‘another country town’.

The well cared-for main street with its generous proportions and graceful buildings, welcomes visitors to a vibrant community with a deep seated appreciation of the richness of life in rural Australia. Temora caters for a diverse range of interests and sports, with its numerous well appointed sporting fields and courts. The beautiful Lake Centenary offers a haven for water activities, from power-boating, waterskiing, sailing, canoeing, fishing or just swimming and features a V8 Jetsprint boat racing course. The internationally acclaimed Temora Aviation Museum and the outstanding Australiana of the Temora Rural Museum ensure a memorable experience.

Ariah Park is situated just 20 minutes west of Temora on the Mary Gilmore Way, a sealed all weather road and heritage trail linking Coolamon, Ariah Park, Barmedman and Grenfell. The wide peppercorn tree lined streets shade a commercial centre where little has changed from the peak of the village’s prosperity in the 1920s. Highlights of any visit to Ariah Park are the Second Glance Op Shop, Echoes of Ariah Park Museum, and the restored railway wagon that was used to take Australia’s first bulk grain shipment to the seaboard. The relaxed pace of ‘Ariah Park time’ offers the traveler a welcome respite from the pressure of the daily round.
