Borenore Karst Conservation Reserve

Borenore Karst Conservation Reserve is a scenic place to picnic near Orange. After a barbecue lunch, explore the reserve’s walking tracks and ancient caves.

An inland oasis for native wildlife and protected species like the eastern bent-winged bat, Borenore Karst Conservation Reserve near Orange is a great place to get in touch with nature.

The ancient limestone caves are the feature attraction at Borenore, and there are several that are open to explore. The most popular is Arch Cave, and it’s a good idea to bring a torch so you can see the stalactites, stalagmites, columns and flowstones inside.

Drive the scenic Borenore trail and finish up with a picnic or barbecue lunch at the caves. The picnic area is a large grassy area, with plenty of shady trees and space for games.
