Circuit

Walk
6 h to 7 h

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.

Oneway

Walk
4 h to 6 h

Walk from Ronny Creek to Lake Rodway (Scott-Kilvert Hut and camping area). During Summer 2019/20 this is the recommended first leg of the Overland Track whilst Waterfall Valley Hut and area is upgraded. Start from the bus stop and car park at Ronny Creek, then wander for a few hundred meters through the buttongrass plains beside Ronny Creek. After this the uphill starts, it is very steep in places, take your time and enjoy the views. You will pass Crater Falls in a lovely rainforest before emerging at the mouth of the glacier-carved Crater Lake. The climbing continues up from here, with chains to assist one short rock scramble up to Marion's Lookout and the amazing views over Dove Lake. Continue along the Overland Track to Kitchen Hut (a great lunch spot) where there is the potential side trip to Cradle Mountain. The Overland Track then continues 'behind' Cradle Mountain before then deviates from the spine of the Overland Track by turn left to head down to Lake Rodway. Follow the steep track downhill to find the Hut and camping areas not far from the shores of the lake. 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.

Walk

The Overland Track is an iconic 4-10 day walk in the heart of Tasmania wilderness. The main spine of this walk guides you through incredibly diverse environments from alpine to lakeside rainforest. Side trips give you access to Mt Ossa, the highest peak in Tasmania as well as many other great peaks, waterfalls and other fantastic places to explore. There are well-established campsites with huts, toilets and tank water each night, a tent is needed as the public huts can not be booked. This track is very popular, especially during summer, you can walk with a guide or do the trip selfguided. Bookings are required during the warmer seasons with spaces filling up quickly. Snow and extreme weather are very possible any time of year, everyone walking the track requires bushwalking experience, those walking in the colder months requires extra alpine walking skills, experience and equipment. Let us begin by acknowledging the palawa people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting near Lake Rowallan, from the car park at the end of Fish River Road, Walls of Jerusalem National Park, this walk leads to the summit of Mount Jerusalem via the Mount Jerusalem Track. Most walkers take 3-4 days to explore the Walls of Jerusalem, using Wild Dog Creek campsite as a base. This site has tent platforms, toilets and running water. To reach the campsite, which is on the alpine plateau, requires some initial effort. From Wild Dog Creek, walking tracks lead through Herods Gate into the interior Walls, passing Lake Salome and the Pool of Bethesda before reaching the imposing Damascus Gate. Optional side tracks lead to Solomon’s Throne and The Temple. Continue your walk through the pencil pine forest to reach Dixons Kingdom. After passing a small alpine lake, the final ascent to Mount Jerusalem zigzags up the rocky slope. Much of the walking track consists of the raised boardwalk, from Wild Dog Creek through to Dixons Kingdom, to protect the fragile alpine vegetation. Walkers are requested to stay on the formed walking tracks at all times, both for their safety and to protect the sensitive alpine region. 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.
