Travel Tips for Devonport

MEANDER FALLS IN THE WESTERN TIERS

by balhannah

These are not far from Deloraine. To reach them, follow c167 to Meander (town) then follow the signs to the park.

We didn't get to see the falls, as when we arrived, we found out that you need most of a day to do the hike, its 5-6 hours return, over not the easiest of walking territory.

The photo is not mine, but its to show you that they do look good and to make you aware of the needed time, energy and fitness to do it.
We only walked a little way.

The Meander Falls track is not the only one in the area. Another track to the falls is via Split Rock. About 1/2 an hour or a little more longer. The track joins the main track near the falls. It is considerably difficult at the falls end requiring the need to cross rocky scree and boulders. Dixons track is also nearby. Further west are Bastion Cascades, Smoko Falls, Chasm Falls, Sids track, Higgs Track and many more.

Sturdy walking boots are generally required. Snow and ice can cover the track in winter months.

The Realm Beyond

by SharrieShaw

Jan. 8, 2005

Devonport was where I spent 2 nights of my life in. Nothing unusual about that.
But when you think about it, if your life will be over in a few minutes, then a lot of things comes into perspective.
These 2 nights, the entire world changed for more than a few million people literally.
Some died, some still lost & some, we'll never know.
These are the 2 nights where I saw images of the aftermath of the tsunami that had killed more than 100,000 in Indonesia alone, not to mention thousands more in 7 other countries from Malaysia, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka across to Africa.
The very 1st time I tuned into the television after I left for the last vacation of the year (& an incredible one for that) on Christmas Eve.
It was on CNN, as with 9/11, where I first came to grasp with the reality of what appeared in front of my eyes. You'll think they are scenes out of Hollywood movies.
In fact, "The Day After Tomorrow" came to mind.
The extenet of the destruction, of sorrows, of finality... how does anyone comes to terms with that?
They were just so unreal... to us all except for those who were there (perhaps?) & many were there!!!

Yet, when I walked out on the streets of Devonport, everything seemed perfectly normal... ~peace~
The world was in chaos at that time, but our capacity to deal with life beyond the present seems unimpaired.
On the other hand, it made me realised that as much as men hope to control the world & one's own life, it's only a human illusion at best.
Everyday is a miracle... the moment we open our eyes in the morning, walk in faith down the street & plan our lives & retirements thinking we'll have one. We are an optimistic bunch, aren't we? Shouldn't we?
Even amidst tragedies, the human race managed to come together as one, to find solace in one another.
That's the miracle during these times, isn't it? That we are not living as individuals, but as a spirit... a spirit that will not be broken & a spirit that will go on regardless! & it's in that spirit there lies the hope & the light, isn't it?! & it's the belief in this spirit that propel us to go on, forever & ever...
