The hike to Meander Falls in Tasmania's Great Western Tiers is an Aussie Bucket List experience for the avid adventurer. Located just 50 minutes drive from Launceston or Devonport, this hidden gem turns into a snow covered, winter wonderland during the winter season. 

Winding its way through the gorgeous surrounds of the Meander Conservation Area, this full-day walk will take you away from the region’s more popular areas, deep into the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and the Great Western Tiers. The walk rewards you with a spectacular view of the 130m high falls and is a fantastic spot to enjoy a picnic lunch. The reward is worth the effort to get there. There is a hybrid toilet and information board located at the car park. Meander Falls Track is grade 3 and will take you 6-7 hours to complete.
