Meander and Split Rock Falls is a 9km, grade 3 Return hike located in Meander Forest Reserve Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 6hrs to complete.


A full day’s walk that gets you away from the more popular areas and into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Liffey Falls is within the Liffey Falls State Reserve.


Meander Falls are very popular and widely considered one of the great short-medium bushwalks in Tasmanian. The track is quite rocky, and does have some steep sections and there can be snow and mud to negotiate during the wetter winter months. The walk is uphill for app. 3 to 3 1/2 hours,a nd the only relief is the last 20 minutes or so which crosses a short plateau. The falls are in two distincy tiers as they drop through a rocky chasm. A great time to visit the Meander Falls in after snow or frost in winter and spring when sections of the falls can freeze and form large icicles.
