Meandering through the bush and along the creek, this walk is a fantastic way to get back to nature and experience unique plants and animals of Torrington State Conservation Area.

You’ll begin your walk on the old fire trail to the Oaky Creek. After a bit of rock hopping and a creek crossing the well-defined track takes you through wooded bush scattered with grass trees – strange looking stumpy trees with long blades of grass growing out the top. In spring and summer, look out for rare wildflower species like Beadle’s grevillia with its red and black toothbrush flowers and Torrington wattle.

After approximately 1.5km you’ll arrive at Ugly Corner Falls. Best viewed after rain, they provide a tranquil spot to take in the scenery and peaceful surroundings before you head back the same way.

If you’re ready for a rest after your walk, why not head to the nearby Blatherarm campground and picnic area to enjoy a relaxing afternoon by the creek.
