History
Opened 1893
Closed late 1970s

Temora railway station is a disused station on the Lake Cargelligo railway line which served the Riverina town of Temora, New South Wales, Australia. It opened in 1893.[1] The station had a traditional role as a transfer point for passenger services to Hillston, Lake Cargelligo, Rankin Springs, Burcher and Naradhan, most of which were withdrawn in the late 1970s. The station is not presently served by passenger services however remains an important signalling facility.

From 2014 to 2016 the station was restored under a $100,000 NSW Govt grant. The station was refurbished with a new community/kids centre/cafe area in the former refreshment room, while the railway station area has become a rail museum with historical photos and stories on display. Dulux is reported to have donated 100litres of paint in 2015 to the repainting.
