The Bastion Cascades/Stone Hut circuit walk – Meander Forest Reserve
Though the start of the Bastion Cascades track is not inspiring, beginning as it does at a clear fell coupe, it does get a whole lot better.
Park at the end of Quarry Road and follow the old logging track till reaching a signposted junction. The right hand path leads upward to the stone hut and a circuit walk beneath the sandstone escarpment to Bastion Cascades, via the top of the falls. The left hand path leads straight to the bottom of Bastion Cascades.
You can do the walk as a circuit either way, or do a return walk to either of the major features.
For the circuit, take a packed lunch and spend the day. The walk will take about 4.5 hours, or a little longer if you want to linger at the Cascades.
This 5.7 km walk starts at an elevation of 578 metres and climbs to 984 metres at its highest point.
How to get there
Access from Mole Creek is via Western Creek to Meander, then follow the signs to Meander Forest Reserve.
Temporary access to Meander Forest Reserve, following the washaway of two bridges, is available for 4WD vehicles only, pending reconstruction.
