Considerably smaller today, Temora is still an important industrial centre for
the rich wheat belt of the northern and western Riverina, with significant
primary production industry. Some of the historic Edwardian and Federation
buildings of that era still stand today.
Temora also lays claim to being the harness racing capital of Australia, with
numerous trotting studs throughout the district, of which one of the more famous
horses to be bred here was Paleface Adios (aka The Temora Tornado). Checkout
Paleface Park on the corner of Hoskins and Loftus Streets to see a replica of
the horse going through its paces.
Being centrally located between Sydney and Melbourne, it also makes a great
place to stay over.
