Boro (postcode: 2622, 35°08′S 149°39′E / -35.133, 149.65) is an official locality, although in reality a rural area, of New South Wales, Australia in Palerang Shire, near the village of Tarago, about 45 km south of Goulburn. The name is a variation of the Aboriginal bora ring.[1]

Boro Creek is a tributary of the Shoalhaven River.

The bushranger, William Westwood, known as "Jackey Jackey", operated in the area.

Silver was mined in the area and there are a number of mining relics and shafts around.[1] The book Monaro; Lost Mines Revisited by B McGowan covers the area and details the mining history.
