BASTION CASCADES - STONE HUT CIRCUIT

The Great Western Tiers

 

After passing Smoko Road on the right the road crosses a bridge over Mother Cummings Rivulet. Immediately to the right across the bridge is Quarry Road off to the right.  The quarry is couple of kiometres up the road allowing for parking.  Another kilometre or more further on is the start of the Stone Hut track with the Bastion Cascades track a couple of hundred metres further on.  The Croft track from Stone Hut to Bastion Cascades allows for a round trip of about 5 hours.

 

At Stone Hut, another track heads further on to The Dell.  Detailed maps show a  route across to Split Rock and Meander Falls.  However, the condition of the track is not known by us.

 

About half way between Stone Hut and Bastion Cascades is Crowden's Croft.  The way up to the Croft is not marked.  It passes through a maze of square flat boulders known as the 'Rabbit Warren'.  A spectacular view from the top.

 

We were lucky enough to be guided into the area on the day we visited.  The track around Bastion Cascades can be difficult to find and care need to be taken.  Otherwise the track is well defined.  At Bastion Cascade there is access to a very narrow ledge allowing an almost full view of the main cascade.  Extreme care need to be taken here.

 

One of the great rainforest walks.

View overlooking the Meander Dam construction site. The dam will certainly enhance the area.
