We started our walk from the Zumsteins Picnic Area, and followed the Mackenzie River all the way to the base of Fish Falls. Although an easy trail, there were some sections that were embedded with stones, and some metal stairs that give you access to...More

Leaving Mackenzie falls and follow the river on a well maintained path. Great place to bring a little lunch or snack to eat on the flat rocks by the falls.

We walked to Fish Falls from Zumsteins and we had a picnic sitting on the rocks in the winter sun while listening to the waterfall. Another family and our teenaged children climbed from the bottom of the falls to the top, however stairs are available...More

In my opinion, these falls are better than Mackenzie Falls, as you can walk up over them & the walk to them is also far more enjoyable. I made the approx 2.3km (one way) treck from Zumsteins Picnic Area (have a look at what's left...More

We did this walk from the Mckenzie falls car park and it was pretty hard as I'm overweight and I've only just quit smoking. It's well worth the walk and there are plenty of romantic spots to sit for a picnic

Can access via Mackenzie falls or from zumsteins picnic area. I would recommend doing from mackenzies falls car park. Beautiful falls and a contrast to the Mackenzie falls which are bigger and more powerful. Do both in the the same walking session!

We walked here from the McKenzie falls, the trek from there is difficult at times. It is half way between there and Zumstiens. If you want to see these falls I would recommend you do it via the Zumstiens picnic area as the walk is...More
