INTRODUCTION:

The Boorganna Nature Reserve is found on the western side of the Comboyne Plateau, about 6.5km to the west of Comboyne.

The Boorganna Nature Reserve is the second oldest nature reserve in New South Wales (dedicated in 1904), though it has now grown to include more than the original area surrounding Rawson Falls. The reserve protects about 400 hectares of native forest, including rainforest. The reserve protects some 38 bird species, Koalas, etc. The reserve is a popular bird watching location.

Access to the reserve is via a gravel road off the Innes View Road (from the Wingham/Comboyne Road), to the west of Comboyne, north of Taree and south west of Wauchope.

Day use facilities include picnic tables and toilets - there are no BBQs.

ATTRACTIONS/WALKS:

Rawson Falls:

Rawson Falls is reached from the Boorganna Picnic Area, with the walk including a lookout overlooking the falls and a walk to the base of the falls. The walking track is 2.7km long and is a relatively easy walk to the base of the falls. However, the return trip can be quite tiring as it is back uphill and will take about 2 hours return. The walk to the lookout only is about 1.7km long. Here Mumfords Creek falls some 40m to the valley floor below.
