Ariah Park

Situated just 20 minutes west of Temora at the intersection of the Burley Griffin way and Mary Gilmore Way. Ariah Park, known as the town of 'Wowsers Bowsers and Peppercorn Trees ムis a quaint little village that has the same look and feel as it did back in the 1920's. The relaxed pace of 'Ariah Park Time' offers the traveller a welcome respite from the pressures of the daily round. The wide peppercorn tree lined streets shade a commercial centre little changed from the peak of the village's prosperity in the 1920's.
