Hard track
Starting from the car park at the end of Meander Falls Road, Meander Forest Reserve, this walk takes you to Meander Falls. Venture deep into the Great Western Tiers to find Meander Falls, an impressive two-tiered waterfall in the alpine area of the Meander River that drops 130 metres through a rocky chasm. The walk is a gradual incline, passing through varied vegetation as it closely follows the river, which can occasionally be glimpsed through the trees. At the end, you'll be rewarded with a spectacular view of the falls. The trail isn't always obvious, but there are red and yellow triangles marking the correct route. Some sections are steep and rocky, and during winter months, ice, snow and mud can make the walk difficult. After snow or frost, sections of the falls can freeze and form large icicles. Be prepared for sudden changes in weather conditions at higher elevations. 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.
