The most recent addition to the Museum precinct is the Temora Ambulance Museum, a display which is described as a wonderful reflection of the heritage of one of the country’s most respected organisations.
The museum is a project of the Temora community and supported by NSW Ambulance, among other authorities. It represents the culmination of many years’ work by volunteers, including about 30 retired and serving paramedics who’ve travelled thousands of kilometres to secure and preserve items of historical interest.
A large number of historic ambulance vehicles and conveyances are displayed at the museum. Dating back to 1897, these include a 1916 Overland Military Ambulance in its original, pristine condition, on loan from a private collector.
The museum houses items that go back to World War 1, such as medical first aid kits, oxygen kits, splints and many other artefacts of that nature, and continues to receive donations of artefacts regularly.
