Route/Trail notes

The track follows the Meander River upstream. It ascends fairly steadily but not steeply at the start, with a steep section after about 3km before it levels out for the last kilometre to the Falls. Return the same way, or take the signposted "Split Rock Track" that descends and crosses the Meander River before traversing a large scree field. This alternate track returns via a number of picturesque waterfalls.

Permits/Costs

National Parks Pass required.

Comments

Great walk despite overcast weather. Definitely worth combining with the Split Rock track to form a circuit.
