The “Bundawarrah Centre” was established in 2011 to reflect the growing diversity of the Temora Rural Museum site.
While the Rural Museum remains the principal attraction of the complex, its street frontage has been remodeled to provide a modern and welcoming introduction to the Temora community through the Temora Visitor Information Centre.
Associated with the Visitor’s Centre is Mother Shipton’s. This facility offers a full commercial kitchen and seating for groups of up to fifty guests. Opening onto a paved terrace overlooking the landscaped grounds of the museum, “Mother Shipton’s offers the perfect venue for family, community or business gatherings.
The Temora Local and Family History Research Centre
The Temora Local and Family History Research Centre is co-located with the Rural Museum. Conducted by the Temora Local & Family History Group, the centre provides assistance to family and community historians through its extensive and ever increasing collection of resources.
The Centre is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons from 1.00pm to 4.00pm each week and at other times by appointment.
Staff can be contacted by phone on 02 69772038 or preferably by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
