Meander Falls and Split Rock Circuit
Starting from the carpark area at the end of Meander Falls Road, Meander Forest Reserve, this walk takes you on a circuit past Meander Falls and Split Rock Falls, via the Meander Falls and Split Rock Falls tracks. Located in the heart of the Great Western Tiers is Meander Falls, a large waterfall in the alpine regions of the Meander River that drops 130 metres over two tiers. Following the river upstream, the walk takes in a wide range of vegetation types as you climb through ancient temperate rainforest and up into the sub-alpine Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Return via the signposted Split Rock Track that descends and crosses the Meander River before traversing a large scree field, passing by a number of picturesque waterfalls. The track is quite rocky with lots of tree roots, uneven terrain and steep sections. During winter months there can be snow and mud on the track, and sections of the falls can freeze and form large icicles. Walkers should be prepared for changing weather conditions at higher elevations, but will be rewarded with stunning views along the length of the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
