Mackenzie Falls is a 2km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Grampians National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

One of the most popular spots in the Grampians and Victoria’s largest Waterfall. As the River is Horsham’s Water supply, there is always a good flow of water over the falls. There is actually a series of waterfalls, with MacKenzie Falls being the largest. A gentle stroll takes you to a viewing platform overlooking Broken Falls. A recently completed track enables you to more easily descend to the base of the spectacular MacKenzie Falls, where you can enjoy the cool atmosphere. A great photographic opportunity. On the way down Cranages Lookout enables you appreciate the Mackenzie River Gorge. The return walk is quite strenuous – take it easy.

  1. The option of continuing down the valley to other falls like Fysh is worth making it a half day of exploring. There is also exploring to be done upstream of McK with a footpad heading from above Pearl Falls to Drummer Falls and the valley below Broken Falls. The area is relatively easy access, and despite swimming prohibited at McK many people have drowned there, so be wary.
