  • Don't be put off by the 260 strenuous stars - it is really worth it! Go early in the morning to beat the crowds on busy weekends.  more »
  • In the autumn months this visit was another highlight of our tour through the Grampian NP. The waterfall can be reached via steep stairs. One hour should be planned at least. There are various hiking tours to get to know this area even better. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time. In total, for the NP, in hindsight, we would schedule three days to undertake even bigger hiking tours. Two days were almost too short.

  • The walk down to MacKenzie Falls is fairly easy. Be mindful that there are about 200 or so steps up and down so if you have issues with steps then it may be wise to avoid. Otherwise it's a beautiful place to see. Many swim although it is prohibited and can have quite strong rips right at the base of the falls otherwise appears safe. Drains into a stream so can always cool down there.
  • Really, really pretty. Even if you don't stick your feet in the water, the breeze blows water droplets right onto you. It feels amazing. If you decide to immerse your body in the water, be careful of the algae. It's really slick and you could easily fall
