Firstly we walked (note: past the beautiful toilet block) the 1km wheelchair accessible track to the falls viewpoint. It is a pleasant walk with brilliant view of the falls from a wooden platform overhanging a cliff at end of track. Looking at the falls you...More

Just walk to the water fall and enjoy the place. Not very special but it’s nice to see the falls from the platforms. Assume in winter the fall would be more spectacular

A nice waterfall, as others have said nothing super special but a good place to get out and wander around. If you're not feeling terribly energetic, just take the circular walk around the top and view the falls from the platform. If you do feel...More

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
