Meander State Forest Reserve, Tasmania
If you're a lover of stunning scenery, excellent waterfalls, magnificent cliff overhangs and small caves all encased in rainforest, then Bastion Cascades along with the Stone Hut loop walk should be high on your priority list. Bastion Cascades is a series of waterfalls and cascades that flow along Bastion Creek in the Meander State Forest Reserve in Tasmania's north. The creek flows between magnificent cliffs providing spectacular views throughout your walk.
The hike commences on Stone Hut Track that you can drive down. An old quarry area that is suitable for car parking is available, and is a suitable place to start your walk. Continue along the well defined track for about 10 minutes until you reach signage that will give you directions to Bastion Cascades via Stone Hut (highly recommended). An alternate route is to continue walking along the track following pink markers and metal arrows on trees. The loop walk via Stone Hut is recommended due to the stunning natural geographic features of the surrounding cliffs. There are also caves, and rock overhangs on the cliffs above that make this walk really delightful. And if that isn't enough, you get to see unexpected things like the Gnome Home
