Meander Falls is large waterfall in the Great Western Tiers of Tasmania, where the Meander River plunges 130m over two tiers through a rocky chasm. The waterfall is about 1000m above sea level so it can freeze in winter. It’s an impressive waterfall, with some of the best views of the entire falls from a short distance away.
As you get closer, the falls are more impressive – but it becomes harder to see the top of the waterfall.
You can’t get the very base of fhe falls (at least, without a fairly chilly swim), but you’re close enough to feel the spray from the cascading water.
Getting to Meander Falls
The Meander Falls Track is the most direct way to the waterfall – which is about 8.4km return (with 400m ascent) and a moderatly challenging walk. You can can see the waterfall from some distance away as you approach it, and you’ll also pass some smaller cascades along the river.
You can return the same way, or do a loop walk with the Split Rock Track (11.5km). As you climb the scree slope along the Split Rock Track, you get another view of the waterfall from the north.
