Nomads Picnic Area
A very pleasant picnic area has been established at the site settled in the early 1970's by Lou Meyrick, an avid amateur naturalist. This area was known locally as 'The Nomads Retreat'. The shelter shed contains original stonework and chimney and outside, the paling fence remains. Fire places, tables, and toilet are provided.
|Westminster Rocks, or Cathedral Rocks. Large granite boulders are to be seen in abundance around Torrington. This particular group of rocks is on the graded walk to the Mystery Face. A very popular bush walk, this track takes the visitor in and around this massive outcrop of granite rocks.
|The walk to the Mystery Face passes many interestingly shaped rocks. Leaving the car park on the way to the 'Face', your imagination will run riot at the "Caterpillar Rock", the "Easter Egg", the "Big Mac", and (a) "Mushroom Rock" and (b) Mushroom Rock and Lions Head.
No imagination needed for this rock formation. Some call this the Boar's Head, but whichever you prefer, this rock just begs to be photographed.
At the end of the track, the "Mystery Face" reveals itself. There certainly is a mystery surrounding this rock, as many say that nature has weathered this rock into a very real face, while others are of the opinion that man has carved the rock face. Why not visit the Mystery Face and see for yourself.
|Torrington is a very pretty area. Wildflowers colour the countryside in the spring, the creeks gurgle over granite rocks, and the huge granite outcrops and balancing rocks amongst the tall trees beckon the bushwalkers and nature lovers.
Mail being delivered.
The village of Torrington enjoys a mail service four days per week. The mail is brought to the village by vehicle, but is delivered around the village by the 'postie on horseback'.
Now, that is worth a look!
