  • Well worth the effort. We went after rain and the falls were superb. Hike back up was definitely a work out! We continued down to fish falls for some extra scenery before heading back.  more »
  • Strenuous walk with steep steps. There is a look out at the top but to appreciate the falls you need to see them from the bottom. Hence the 260 steps, after a light drizzle the steps were a little...  more »
  • If you love waterfalls then you must visit McKenzies Fall. It is worth the walk down , the walk back up is a little steep. It is amazing to listen to the falls as you walk down. A beautiful natural...  more »

  • The walk down to MacKenzie Falls is fairly easy. Be mindful that there are about 200 or so steps up and down so if you have issues with steps then it may be wise to avoid. Otherwise it's a beautiful place to see. Many swim although it is prohibited and can have quite strong rips right at the base of the falls otherwise appears safe. Drains into a stream so can always cool down there.
  • Really, really pretty. Even if you don't stick your feet in the water, the breeze blows water droplets right onto you. It feels amazing. If you decide to immerse your body in the water, be careful of the algae. It's really slick and you could easily fall
  • My brother and I fought all day about whether or not to visited the falls since it is an hour off the main road. I’m so happy he won since we saw the amazing falls and hundreds of wallaby’s along the way. We were the only people up there at sunset with one other couple which was amazing. The roads were not as bad as people say. Just lookout for wildlife, frogs (there were hundreds out at night) and the cows. Enjoy!
  • A wonderful waterfall, with plenty of beautiful scenery. It also provides great photo opportunities, but the only thing that may stop some people is the 266 steep steps you have to take to get down to the falls (the way back up is more tiring), but this shouldn't deter anyone from going to visit this magnificent place! Otherwise it is definitely worthwhile visiting, as it is one of the best waterfalls to experience in the Grampians!
  • Fun experience. The walk can get a little busy at peak times, I would recommend going when it's less busy to enjoy the location without much noise or pushing. The walk itself is a bit of an effort, harder with kids. Be prepared to carry them for about 15 minutes of steps and inclines. Lots of different areas to look at other than the fall itself, so keep exploring. Don't jump off any cliffs, the water is shallow and the rocks are hard.
