The tranquil region of Borenore NSW is located a scenic twenty minute drive from Orange. Peer beyond the gumtree-lined country laneways and bridle tracks and you will find one of the most abundant regions in the district for local produce. Discover numerous vineyards producing wine varieties of a unique and distinct character, a fig orchard, a pick-your-own berry farm, locally produced apple cider and chic cellar door experiences. A charming former convent now operates as boutique accommodation and is the perfect place to have a wedding or conference.
Rich in indigenous heritage, the nearby Borenore Karst Conservation Reserve, or known to locals simply as Borenore Caves, were once the birthing grounds for women of the Wiradjuri tribes. The limestone caves were also a source of fine Borenore Red marble, which was supplied to the Strand Arcade in Sydney and also Buckingham Palace. Today, the reserve is an ideal picnic spot, where visitors can explore the many natural wonders of the cave system including the Tunnel Cave and the Arch Cave, surrounded by igneous rock that flowed from volcanic eruptions at nearby Mount Canobolas.
Once a year Borenore swells to over 50,000 people as the area plays host to the Australian National Field Days.
