Be prepared for camping at Blatherarm Torrington State Conservation Area due to its remote location and limited mobile reception in the area.

Things To Do Near Torrington

Torrington State Conservation Area offers bushwalking, birdwatching and fossicking for visitors. We fossicked in the creek at Blatherarm campground for small gemstones. We also really enjoyed our walk up to the bushranger Thunderbolt’s Lookout, offering 360 degree views over the area.

A short drive away is the historic Ottery Mine. This site was was the mining operation and production of arsenic, and while there are no facilities here, it is an interesting walk through the ruins.

Further along the road is the town of Emmaville and the Emmaville Mining Museum. For a $2 gold coin donation, the museum is home to an excellent collection of previous stones and minerals, and historic memorabilia.

Pin it for later!
