Completely stoked…did this walk in just under two hours!
Time: 2-3 hours
Start: Zumsteins Picnic Ground
Follow the track to Fish Falls where the track becomes steeper, meandering through a large gorge beside the river to the base of MacKenzie Falls.
Have to work this weekend so can’t do any overnight walks, so decided to do a walk close to home.
I realise quickly into it that this was going to be easy and I would have to go hard to keep my heart rate up and make the most of it.
The MacKenzie and Glenelg rivers have their headquarters in the Grampian ranges, and provide vital habitats for a wealth of precious riverine plants and animals. Didn’t see any platypus but did see lots of these little guys crossing the path.
While crossing the very fast moving river on old, rusty looking platforms, I kept thinking to myself – think thin Feisty, think light…I just didn’t want to go body surfing down the stream past others – shame.
The sight that awaits you at the base of the falls is breathtaking. I really like feeling the power of nature. I reckon it’s from growing up in Queensland around wild cyclonic weather and the unpredictable ocean.
