Meander Falls Road bridges complete


Access to Meander Falls, one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, is now available year-round for two wheel drive vehicles, following the replacement of two bridges on the Meander Falls Road that were washed away during flooding in 2011.

The $500,000 project was completed earlier this year and visitors are delighted to be able to access this scenic part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

The new single span concrete bridges across the Meander River and Mother Cummings Rivulet provide access to the former picnic area/day use site and Huntsman’s Hideaway.

The concrete bridges will have a long life span and have been designed to not impede the flow of water or passage of logs or other materials during regular flood events.

Parks and Wildlife Service signage has also been replaced in this area and visitors have enjoyed the improved access since the bridges were completed.
