New England Range Things to Do: 34 reviews and 65 photos
If you're on the New England Highway between Glen Innes and Tenterfield, then you may consider taking a diversion out to Old Mystery Face or the waterfalls (often water trickles).
It's a little bit out of Torrington, a town you'd never hear of and probably never want to visit unless you had relatives there.
In fact, it's one of those towns that is struggling just to be there and the little bit of tourism that the nearby rock formations have brought is a blessing.
When you get to the Torrington State Recreation Area there is a carpark from where you take a fairly easy walking trail to the formations.
The reserve covers 29,350 hectares with the highest elevation being 1,300 metres and is ideal for scrub bashing as we call it in Australia.
Torrington has a caravan park and a Bar & Grill with beds and nearby Emmaville (my recommendation) has a caravan park and two hotels though those seeking 4 and 5 star accommodation need not apply.
See my entry under "Off the beaten track" for more details on Mystery Face.
Directions: West of the New England Highway 60 kms north west of Glen Innes.
