Easy track
Starting from Mackenzie Falls Car Park, Zumsteins, this walk takes you on a circuit in Grampians National Park, visiting Mackenzie Falls along the way. A stringybark forest welcomes you from the car park as it slowly shifts into open vistas over Mackenzie Falls, which is one of the greatest in the Grampians and flows with intensity. The path consists of gravel and is flat, but it can be slippery at certain sections. It is open all year round, and you can opt to give it a visit early in the morning for a tranquil experience. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
