We popped in to the Borenore reserve to go to the overhang cave, we didn't realise there would be a part to walk thru to go around the ring track or we would have brought our torch. It was a lovely walk and our 3.4dd enjoyed her self too. It was a lovely exploration for her and for us it... More

I have been out to Borenore Karst a couple of times before for picnics and a quick look around the arch cave area. This time however I came prepared. Arch Cave loop is a nice 600m walk which leads you to the south eastern (?) entrance. Beautiful views and an easy walk. There is a small amount of scrambling to... More

We have travelled past here many time and decided it was time to stop. There is a large picnic area and toilets. There are 2 main walks. The Arch Cave which is the shortest walk and the Verandah/Tunnel Cave walk which is about 7 km return. We decided to do the long walk first and headed off along the road.... More

I went with my (70 year old) Mum, we both found the track very easy to walk on. The bushland leading up to the cave was very picturesque. The rock arch was massive and full of character, there's also a lovely little stream underneath. The cave itself had several chambers with a walking track that lead you outside... We didn't... More

My better half and I explored this cave and we very much enjoyed ourselves. This is a good cave for someone who been caving before and it made a very good picnic as we had the whole place to ourselves. One other plus is it is free to enter, however that may of changed as we went there a few... More

Access to the caves is via a one kilometre well maintained gravel road at the end of which one arrives at a superb and very large picnic ground. A superb place for a lunch stop and lots of very friendly kookaburras to share ones lunch with. At the edge of the parking area is an information board providing guidance to... More

The cave is small and a bit of a let down if you were expecting a larger cave. You can walk around it in under 10 seconds. Beware of the bats as once they are disturbed they will come flying out. Also take mositoque repellant for the cave as they are in there. The cave is a short walk from... More

Frankly speaking, the caves are not interesting, but it's a good place to have a picnic or bushwalk. Admission is free. Watch your steps when you walk in the caves.
