Inaugural RV Muster Is Ready To Roll
Nestled in the heart of the Riverina, lies the beautiful town of Temora. A truly traditional farming town, here you will find the friend- liest townsfolk, the best service and the most relaxing atmosphere around. This little country town has a lot to offer.
Mayor of Temora Rick Firman sure believes so, “Temora Shire is a very special place and all of my fellow citizens of Te- mora Shire truly do care for each other, regardless of any perceived rank and station – and we believe in our strong future.”
Temora continues to grow and so too does its rich culture and excitement for the future. It is constantly bustling with events including the upcoming RV muster.
Come the 20th of April 2017 the tranquil town of Temora will be abuzz with people who have navigated across Australia. Like -minded travellers will come together to enjoy activities including traditional camp breakfasts as well as day trips to Junee Licorice Factory, Coolamon Cheese Factory, and high tea at the historical Ariah Park Ho- tel. Attendees can mix socially each night at “happy hour” and have a good old fash- ioned dinner dance. Guests will also be treated to guided tours of Temora’s three exceptional museums; the Temora Rural Museum, the Temora Railway Museum and The Temora Aviation Museum.
Those with a thirst for knowledge will love the travelling with talks from the NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, and NSW Rural Fire Service, as well as workshops on mechanicals, electricals and tyre care.

The V8 unlimited class fea- tures top class superboats of racing in jet- sprinting with the boats being unrestricted except for a minimum engine size and con- trolled methanol fuel. V8 Superboat En- gines are unrestricted and vary depending on the design concept behind them. The event kicks off on March the 4th at 3pm. Tickets are $25 adult, kids $5, family pass (2 kids, 2 adults) $50. Tickets can be pur- chased online or at the gate.
After exploring the town you simply can’t leave without taking in the rich history of the community as you visit the town’s museums, Temora Rural Museum and Temora Aviation Museum.
One of Temora’s popular tourist attractions is the Rural Museum and Ambulance Museum. The museums main annual exhibition is on the second Saturday of March each year, with this year’s 44th annual exhibition coming up very soon on March 11th. Come delve into history with a beautifully presented showcase of Australia’s changing country living.
Arguably Temora’s top attraction is the Temora Aviation Museum, and this comes from the town’s rich aviation history. It hosted Australia’s largest Royal Australian Air Force aviation school during World War II, with more than 10,000 personnel on site and 2,400 pilots trained. At it’s peak the fa- cility held 97 of the famous Tiger Moth air- craft, and ceased operation in 1946. Aviation activities such as gliding, parachuting, aerobatics, ultra-light aircraft operations and model aircraft displays are still held in town. The Museum is located next door to the airport on Tom Moon Avenue, north of the town centre, off Airport Street. It has a number of permanent exhibits including ‘Unsung Heroes’, ‘The History of the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation’, ‘The Magic of Flight’, and ‘CAC Sabre’. The museum offers guided tours with volunteers, audio-visual presentations, a theatre, engineer viewing, a gift shop, playground, garden and picnic areas, and the ‘Aircraft Showcase’. The Museum is open daily between 10am and 4pm.
