First Bulk Wheat Haulage

Ariah Park a village 32 kilometres west of Temora claimed its name to fame on the 27th September 1916 when bulk wheat was loaded at its Railway siding for the first time in rural Australia.

Prior to this wheat had been transported in bags. A combination of the coming of the railway, better on-farm machinery and bulk selling through enterprising agents allowed Ariah Park to claim its place in the nation's history as "the birthplace of bulk grain haulage" in Australia.
