Mackenzie/Bun-nah trail

Distance: 10.5 km one-way
Time: 2-3 hours
Grade: Medium
Start: Zumsteins Picnic Area or halfway point at Cooinda Burrong Road

The 10.5km Mackenzie River/Bun-nah Trail takes up where the original ‘Back Track’ left off 100-years-ago when it was a route for walkers, horses, carriages, and wagon teams into the Central Grampians Ranges. Today, the route has been developed into a trail for visitors to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Grampians and learn about its history as they travel between Zumsteins Picnic Area and Wartook Valley.

The one-way trail can be approached from either Zumsteins picnic area or Wartook, or you can access the track at approximately the halfway point at Cooinda Burrong/Dad and Dave Weir. During the winter/wetter months the track is subject to standing water/ flooding and best avoided during those times.
