At a Gala function in Sydney last night for the 2007 NSW Tourism Awards, Temora Aviation Museum received an Encouragement Award in the category of tourist attractions.
The Museum, which has been open to the public for the last six years, is honoured with this recognition from the industry. Established to collect and maintain in airworthy condition, historical military aircraft types flown by or in conjunction with Australian military forces, the Museum and Temora have become destinations for thousands of tourists. The benefits this creates for Temora and the Riverina Region has played a significant role in helping to weather these tough times.
Temora Aviation Museum is still growing and will continue to improve its facilities, operations and flying days.
The Museum is continuing its tradition of displaying historical aircraft this weekend when it holds its last flying days for 2007. Formations of World War II aircraft including the Spitfire, Boomerang, Hudson and Mustang will enthral yet another group of visitors who have made the pilgrimage to this small country town. While the power of the classic jet fighters will get hearts racing.
Our Congratulations go to the winners of our category the Pet Porpoise Pool at Coffs Harbour. We wish them success in the coming year.
