The iconic and spectacular MacKenzie Falls is a must for all visitors to Grampians National Park.

MacKenzie Falls Lookout Walk

Distance: 1.9km return
Time: 40 minutes
Elevation change: 10 metres
Grade: Easy
Start: MacKenzie Falls Carpark

The Bluff Lookout provides sweeping views of MacKenzie Falls and the MacKenzie River from high above the gorge. The lookout provides the only opportunity to capture the multiple cascades of the MacKenzie River as it flows through the gorge, including a wonderful view of MacKenzie Falls. If you can’t make it to the base of the falls, this is the best alternative.

Bluff Lookout is accessed via a gently undulating, sealed walking track that wanders through a sheltered woodland. It is suitable for wheelchairs.

For the most spectacular view approach the viewing platform from the right-hand fork of the track.

MacKenzie Falls Walk

Distance: 2km return
Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Elevation change: 110 metres
Grade: Easy (to Broken Falls lookout), medium (to base of MacKenzie Falls)
Start: MacKenzie Falls Carpark

Broken Falls Lookout provides a sweeping view of the MacKenzie River as it cascades over Broken Falls. The cantilevered lookout sits on the edge of the gorge.

The lookout is accessed via a short, sealed walking track from MacKenzie Falls Carpark. The initial section is steep, but the track and lookout are suitable for wheelchairs.

To continue to the base of MacKenzie Falls, return to the main track intersection and continue along the signposted track past Cranages Lookout. Take care as this walk has many steps and is steep, slippery and strenuous in sections. Return the same route.

Swimming is not permitted at the base of the falls.
