THE HISTORY OF TEMORA: THINGS TO DO PEOPLE TO SEE

Temora has an interesting history and quite a romantic name. John Donald McCansh came upon the area in 1847 while he was running his sheep. 

He could not find any natives around to tell him the name of the land he had just discovered, so he decided to name it Temora, after a property he previously lived near in another part of Australia. 

It was the native name for that property, although he discovered not soon after naming the new town Temora that the word is also a name in Ossian's poems. Scottish poet James Macpherson claimed in the mid-1700's that he had been the translator of ancient Gaelic poems and epics by Ossian, son of Fingal. 

They were highly popular works at the time, romantic and dreamy and bringing people back to their ancient roots. Maybe this will entice you to visit Temora; its mythical name origins truly are fascinating.

The area of Temora started as a pastoral station in the 1800's before being incorporated. Soon, gold was discovered, and a village was established. During a huge gold rush in 1879, there was an enormous influx of 20,000 people to dig for gold.

During this expedition, the world famous Mother Shipton nugget was found, weighing 308 ounces. A facsimile of this piece of gold is at the Temora Rural Museum. 

At one point, Temora was producing half of Australia's gold. Many people of German origin eventually ended up settling in Temora, resulting in many street names of German origin, but the town was never as big as it was during that gold rush of 1879. 


So, there is a bit of history. What is there to do? Well, quite a bit for a town like this. With a population of 3,874, it is a small, cozy place with little museums and many interesting things to discover. 

The town is primarily known for its Temora Aviation Museum, which has several aircraft including Australia's only two Spitfires--single-seat fighter aircraft used primarily during and after World War II. The Temora air show happens each year and is a fun event for everyone in town.

Lake Centenary is just north of town and is a man made lake where the locals can have fun in the water: whether it is sailing, waterskiing, boating or canoeing, you can do it at this lake. 

There are events going on in Temora every weekend practically. In April, there is a musical showcase highlighting local music at Sound Shell stage. 

The Aviation Museum flying weekend is coming up in April, and there are greyhound meets for the racing crowd. 

There are several events for children in which they can bring a grandparent or friend, and there is Youth Week, which focuses on children and adolescents and gives them a way to meet up and learn new things and find adventure. 

Not only that, but the Temora 1000 is the continent's fastest runway race. If you are a racing fan, Temora is the place to be. 

The Temora Golden Gift Festival, held in February, is quite a sight and shouldn't be missed either. Over 200 athletes come to town for a footrace that is exciting, entertaining and great fun for all. 

The October Hot Rod show brings in many people, as well as the Jetboat race on Lake Centenary, where boats race across the Hi-Tec Park V8 Superboats course. 

Throughout the year in Temora, there are street stall markets that bring out local artisans and farmers to sell their wares. They add interest and spice to a town that is not at all like most villages its size.

WHERE YOU CAN STAY, PLUS THE GEOGRAPHY AND WEATHER

So, once you arrive in Temora, where could you stay? There are Bed and Breakfast in which a visitor can spend the night while having an adventure in this unique town. Rose Cottage is a beautiful place, as well as Courthouse Cottage and Patchwork Inn. The Rose Cottage, in particular, has excellent ratings and beautiful bedrooms where you can relax after a long day exploring. Temora accommodation is extensive for a town so small, with several small and charming hotels that you could stay in.

So, what is the area like geographically? What kinds of natural sights would you see near Temora? It lies on the western slopes of the very fertile Riverina area, with flat to slightly undulating terrain. There are many streams and rivers, with the Lachlan and Murrumbidgee rivers running north and northwest and the Murray River running south. It lies about 300 meters above sea level, with beautiful wildflowers in the fields in spring and a gorgeous downtown with interesting architecture.

The weather is mild and rather nice, as much of Australia is. Unlike the outback, the summers are hot but not sweltering, hovering around 30 degrees Celsius in January and February, while the winters are mild, getting down to 2.1 C at the coldest.

Move to Temora and you will find that life gets less stressful. With a small town feel and the friendliest people in New South Wales, you cannot go wrong with Temora as a place to live. It has the small town charm that is lost in a city, but with plenty to do, unlike many small towns in NSW. Visiting Temora is a special experience, because it is tiny but vibrant.

People in Australia forget about the fascinating small towns that are out of the way; they choose to ignore or forget some hidden gems on the continent. It is worth a visit to Temora to get a glimpse of small town life in inner Australia; a place that was totally wild once, and still is. A rare small town with events such as the Temora 1000, jetboat racing, and charming markets throughout the year, it is not your average Australian village.

When you are in Temora, you could stay at the Rose Cottage and take a look around the beautiful downtown, enjoying the market stalls and all the local wares on sale. You could go jet skiing at Lake Centenary and relax, and one day visit all the museums. You could go to one of the local festivals and enjoy the perfect weather and the amazing food. With the best weather on earth, a fascinating history and the friendliest people in Australia, there really isn't much of a debate. Temora is definitely a place to see.

Have a visit and look around. Enjoy inner Australia and the culture there, of the aboriginals as well as the European descended peoples. Get to know its history and what makes the place tick. After a visit, consider a move. Hey, stranger things have happened. You may enjoy the local charm so much that you decide to make it permanent. As the rest of Australia has said: there is no friendlier place in all of NSW. Happy travels, and we look forward to seeing you on your visit to Temora.

WHAT KIND OF JOBS WOULD YOU FIND, AND HOW IS THE HOUSING MARKET?

What kind of work is to be found there, and what could you expect economically speaking? Much of the employment in Temora supports the farm industry, especially the grain farming that is produced there. Temora is the major source of grain for Australia; it is the heart of grain growing country within the continent. There is also a local 34 bed hospital, two medical practices, a dentist and two pharmacies. Jobs in Temora relate to these kinds of industries, but also Temora business owners would do well there. There are two primary schools, one high school and a Catholic school, so if you are a teacher you would find work here. Also, there is a flight school in Temora; there's not an aviation museum there for nothing. If you are a pilot and would like to teach, Temora would be the perfect place for you to relocated.

There are two or three property brokerage companies in town, with very professional websites and many offerings on the table in relation to properties for sale. The housing prices are pretty reasonable and affordable, with the interesting architecture that you find downtown displayed in some of the housing styles. There are chances, in a town such as Temora, to have an estate with a lot of land at your disposal. It is a great opportunity to go off grid to enjoy nature at its finest.
