The spectacular MacKenzie Falls is an iconic year-round fixture within the Grampians National Park. Water cascades dramatically over huge cliffs, plunging into a deep pool before continuing down along the MacKenzie River towards nearby Fish Falls. Further upstream, Broken Falls is just a short walk from the MacKenzie Falls car park.

There is a picnic area alongside the car park on Wartook Road.

Swimming is not permitted at the base of MacKenzie Falls.

  • Starting point: MacKenzie Falls carpark
  • Difficulty: Easy (to Broken Falls lookout), moderate (to base of MacKenzie Falls)
  • Elevation change: 110 metres
The walking track to the bottom of MacKenzie Falls is steep, but well worth the effort. The walk is 2 km return and includes a large section of steep steps as you make your way down into the gorge to the base of the falls. A viewing platform over Broken Falls is located before the walk heads down the steps - wheelchairs and prams can access the Broken Falls viewing platform, but no further.

  • Distance: 1.9 km return
  • Time: 40 mins
  • Starting point: MacKenzie Falls carpark
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Elevation change: 10 metres
An alternative track takes you to the Bluff, a viewing platform overlooking MacKenzie Falls with excellent views over the multiple cascades of the MacKenzie River from high above the gorge. The walk to the Bluff is a gentle, sealed track and is wheelchair accessible. 

Walk to Fish Falls
  • Starting point: Base of MacKenzie Falls
  • Difficulty: Moderate 
Fish Falls is a stunning waterfall along the MacKenzie River which cascades beautifully over 60 metres of terraced rock into a gorgeous pool below. From the base of MacKenzie Falls, follow the track downstream along the MacKenzie River until you reach Fish Falls.
