Best times to visit
There are lots of great things waiting for you in Boorganna Nature Reserve. Here are some of the highlights.
Autumn, with its mild temperatures, is a great season to bushwalk, picnic and enjoy the views from the waterfall and the brightly coloured fungi that are rampant in the rainforest at this time of year.
Spring is a great time for bushwalks and birdwatching when plants are flowering and fruiting. The reserve's birds are all highly active during this time too.
Summer is a good time to escape the heat and holiday crowds by exploring the hinterland. Walking in cool temperate rainforest can be a pleasant and calming escape on a hot summer day.
In winter, the reserve and the Comboyne Plateau create a picturesque winter wonderland destination for car touring, with its early morning frosts at high altitudes and crystal clear skies.
