Enjoy this walk in the Grampians that winds its way along the river through young eucalypt forest, going past the Cranages Lookout, the thunderous MacKenzie Falls, and the terraced cascades of Fish Falls. Get to the base of MacKenzie Falls and see the waterfall up close. Enjoy the cascades and the rock pools as well as the escarpments around. Keep an eye out for the impressive Wedge-tailed Eagle circling above. The walk finally reaches the Zumsteins Historic Area, with remnants of a historic settlement to be discovered before heading back. Best tackled by fit walkers, this walk involves water crossings, rock hopping and rock scrambling. Take care as steps and rocks can be very slippery. This is a very popular walk, so come early to beat the crowds. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
