An hour’s hike from Borenore picnic area you’ll find Verandah Cave, a large limestone overhang protecting large pools of water. Located near Orange, it’s a great destination for a weekend getaway or a stretch of the legs on a car tour along Borenore trail.
It’s a pleasant 3.5 kilometre walk along Boree Creek trail, over mainly flat ground and through the bush. You’ll see yellow box gum and apple box trees, and possibly even eastern grey kangaroos.
Explore the rocky outcrops formed over thousands of years by fast-moving water. If you’re very quiet, you might be lucky to see a platypus, although they are very shy. The cave is a shady, relaxing place to unpack a picnic, or to enjoy a leisurely lunch beside the tranquil Verandah Creek.
