Boorgana Nature Reserve

The obvious place to visit in in the upper reaches of the river is the Boorgana Nature Reserve. Parts of this reserve were gazetted in 1904, making it the second oldest in NSW. It now extends over nearly 400 hectares and includes the impressive Rawson Falls. This is best reached from the picnic area which is located 6.5km west of the town of Comboyne. From the picnic area you can stroll down the 2.7 km walking track which descends into the rainforest. About half way along this track Rawson Lookout overlooks the 40 metre drop of the falls. Be warned however that the walk back is all uphill. For more information visit
