Torrington State Conservation Area

Natural Attractions

Get off the beaten track and experience the serenity of Torrington State Conservation Area. It has dramatic views and granite formations, secluded camping and peaceful picnic spots.

Whether you’re a keen bush walker, birdwatcher, fossicker, 4WD enthusiast or just a nature lover who likes to get away from it all, Torrington State Conservation Area has options for pretty much everyone.

Sprawling across the rugged Mole Tableland, the dry forests and woodlands are scattered with scenic rock outcrops and balancing boulders, gorges, swamps and small creeks. From September to March the bush becomes a blaze of colour with spectacular wildflower displays.

Explore by 4WD or head out by foot on trails like the Thunderbolts lookout walking track and you’ll get dramatic 360 degree views of the surrounding tablelands. Spark your imagination as you admire the stunning rock formations on the Mystery Face walking track.

Or go back in time to the bygone mining era as you try your luck fossicking for semi-precious gemstones at the creek near Blatherarm campground and picnic area.
