Temora - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located in the rich agricultural district of the Riverina in the south west, 80 km north of Wagga Wagga, Temora is another town that has experienced the boom and bust of gold fever. By the early 1880s, not only did Temora have a population of over 20,000, but it was also producing half the state's gold. There was gold still being mined until 1996, when the state's largest open-cut gold mine north of the town was closed, although exploration apparently is still ongoing.

There are tours that will take you around the old mine sites. At the Temora Rural Museum you can see a replica of the spectacular “Mother Shipton Nugget” from “the Mother Shipton” mine, that weighted in at 308.35 ounces.

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.
