Easily accessible from Halls Gap, McKenzies Falls is definitely worth a look. Not the most spectacular or pretty waterfall you’ll see but it is reasonably large, flows year round and you can get very close to the bottom. Very busy at times for those who...More

Really enjoyed the steps all the way down and the view once at the bottom. The climb each way is 260 steps (the kids counted them to check - a great way to get them motivated)

Spectacular falls, great views all the way down. And ‘down’ is the active verb here! There is a very steep ascent but it is safe with good handrails. Beautiful at the base with the option of walking further to Fish Falls. The climb back up...More

McKenzie Falls was the best part of our day trip to Grampians. It's a short walk from the parking area and a few steep steps down to the fall base - doesn't score high on accessibility but definitely worth it. We had a little picnic...More

From the parking lot, there are several trails. The shortest is to a lookout of Broken falls (or cascade). Farther on that same trail is a so-so lookout of the top of McKenzie Falls. One can then hike a long way down to the actual...More

The climb down and up from the bottom of the falls was pretty exhausting but the sight of the falls was definitely worth it! It wasn’t that crowded when we were there so I had the time to enjoy the view and sounds of the...More

The mcKenzies falls in the Grampians is a good place to spend some time. The falls can be admired from the top, if you dont want to walk all the way down. At the bottom an amazing view awaites.

We took our 4 and 1 year old to Mackenzies Falls during April. It was a great walk up to the loop and look out. It was a short walk which was easy for the children. The park is well signed and states that the...More

This is a great spot. Although no swimming is permitted there were plenty of people enjoying the water. It did look very inviting on a warm day. A waterfall that was worth the effort.

Magnificent waterfall. Yes the walk back to the car is hard work (especially in 38 degree weather) but the site that you come from is well worth the exertion. Must see ( and swimming is ok just don't go too close to where the water...More
