Meander Falls,Tasmania

  This classic day walk through myrtle and eucalypt forest at the edge of the Great Western Tiers, Tasmania is a must for those keen bushwalkers who explore this lovely island. The walk is 7km from Apex Hut and rises 500 metres following the rise of the Meander River. Some steep sections of rocky track and some sections of screed need to be walked but track indicators are clear. The view of the falls, even in mid summer is sensational. Have lunch at the falls and return via the same track or choose to cross the river ( Split Rock track junction 500metres before the falls.)This return walk demands a steep climb over screed and is more exposed. As it was a hot day by Tas standards (30 degrees C), we chose to return the way we had come.

Directions to reach the track:

From Deloraine turn left on to the Lakes Road and procede to Meander. Through Meander follow the gravel road ( Meander Falls Road) to the Apex Hut Car Park ( 8kms from Deloraine) 1 hour 15 mins from Launceston.
