The Shire of Temora offers all the benefits of country living with a comprehensive range of quality services.
Temora has a huge advantage as it is centrally located between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne, as well as being situated within South West Slopes/Riverina area, making it an ideal base from which to visit the region. It is situated approximately 80 km north of Wagga Wagga in the South West (Riverina) of New South Wales. Canberra is two hours drive to the east, with Griffith a 1.5 hour drive to the west.
With a strong retail trade sector and an active business community, many visitors are surprised at the variety of shopping within the town. The diversity and strength of agriculture is the foundation of the local economy. Temora Shire is strategically positioned in the heart of the State’s rich sheep-wheat belt and is regarded as one of the safest agricultural areas of New South Wales.

Sheep is the major draw card for visitors, there’s also lots of fun with a street parade, Irish singers and dancers, pipe bands and hot air ballooning.

Take a leisurely drive around the countryside towards Young and you’ll discover interesting villages, orchards and boutique wineries.
