At a Gala function in Sydney last night for the 2008 NSW Tourism Awards, Temora Aviation Museum received a Gold Award for the Heritage and Cultural Tourism category. Not only did we take out this award, we also won a Silver award for the Festival & Events Category for our Flying Days.

The Museum, which has been open to the public for the last seven years, is honoured with this recognition from the tourism industry with the goal 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 tens of thousands of tourists which has created significant benefit for Temora and the Riverina Region. Temora Aviation Museum is still evolving and will continue to improve its facilities, operations and flying days.

We would like to thank all of our supporters and visitors who have helped us win this award and invite you to share in our success. Next step is the Australian Tourism Awards held early next year. Wish us luck.
