BORENORE A WELL DESERVED REST SPOT

We arrive at the turnaround point for the discovery ride. It’s the small settlement of Borenore located just 17 kilometres from Orange (although we’ve ridden over 23 kilometres to get there.)

The main attraction is the post office-general store-café which is just across from the old railway station. It proves to be an ideal rest spot for coffee and conversation with our fellow riders.

The Borenore railway station is on the Broken Hill railway line and was opened in 1885. The buildings are really well-preserved and I understand that the nearby court is used by the local tennis club.

The countryside is wonderful with orchards, vineyards and other agricultural enterprises. This little old shack has seen better times.
