Meander is a rural town in the Meander Valley Council area of Tasmania, Australia. In 2001 it had a population of 415, forty percent of whom worked directly in agriculture, many in the dominant industries of grazing of sheep and cattle, and the dairy industry. The surrounding land has been modified by the original inhabitants, who turned forest into grassland, and the later settlers, who have created extensive channels for irrigation and drainage. The town is bisected by the Meander River and it sits between Quamby Bluff and Mother Cummings Peak of the Great Western Tiers mountain range, 24 kilometres south of the town of Deloraine, Tasmania.

- Meander: A meander or meandros is a decorative border constructed from a continuous line, shaped into a repeated motif. Such a design is also called the Greek fret or Greek key design, although these are modern designations. On the one hand, the name "meander" recalls the twisting and turning path of the Maeander River in Asia Minor, and on the other hand, as Karl Kerenyi pointed out, "the meander is the figure of a labyrinth in linear form". Among some Italians, these patterns are known as Greek Lines.
