Things to do: museums
Temora is a town in the north-east of the Riverina area of New South Wales, 418km south-west of the state capital, Sydney. At the the urban population of Temora was 3,874. The name "Temora" is derived from a Celtic term, which means "an eminence commanding a wide view."Temora has been reported as being the friendliest town in New South Wales, following a series of mentions in the Sydney Morning Herald's Column 8, which organised a bus trip to the town for Sydney readers in 2005.Temora was named by John Donald McCansh. In September 1880 he told the Warwick Argus: “I took up the country for a sheep run in 1847, my sole companion being Valentine Lawler, who was then lessee of a station (“Nimbi”) on Cunningham Creek. We could not ascertain the native name of the place as there were no blacks about, and rather than give it an English name, I called it ‘Temora’, the native name of a property near which I lived some years previously in another part of the Colony. I gave the station the name specially because it was aboriginal and I liked it. I did not know at that time, nor for years afterwards, that Temora was a name in Ossian’s poems.” Significantly, neither the ‘Wiradjuri Dictionary’ (2010) nor the ‘Macquarie Dictionary of Aboriginal Words’ (2006) list ‘temora’ or any words similar to it.GeographyTemora is located in North Eastern end of the Riverina region of NSW and is also part of the South West Slopes. Temora has an elevation of 302m above sea level. The countryside is flat to undulating. To the north of Temora lies the Narraburra Hills which incorporate the Boginderra Hills Nature Reserve.
