In the Mount Puzzler Forest Reserve near Fingal in Tasmania's east is Meadstone Falls, a large waterfall flowing along St Pauls River. Meadstone Falls drops into a natural pool surrounded with large rocky cliffs on each side. Upstream from the waterfall are other natural pools ideal for swimming, and can be easiliy accessed.
From Fingal, drive towards St. Marys, and turn right onto Valley Road. Valley Road is an unsealed road used by Foresty Tasmania, and is usually in pretty good condition. Drive along Valley Road for about 5kms, taking special care not to drive down some of the newer roads that have been built from this one. As you near the Meadstone Falls Carpark, the road is narrow and rough with overgrown vegetation encroaching on the road. Due to a damaged bridge, the road is barrricaded to prevent vehicles passing. At this point your hike begins.
