We have now completed realignment works on Mt Victory Road, near Halls Gap.

Stabilisation and realignment works were completed to preserve the road’s longevity and stability, with works including the excavation and removal of rock material, construction of new pavement and drainage and line marking.

Finishing works and the final seal are complete and Mt Victory Road has reopened to traffic.

Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park – Changes to access at MacKenzie Falls -Wednesday 8 March 2023

The rock shelf at the base of the MacKenzie Falls and the large rock stepping stones crossing the river are now permanently closed. Recent investigations at MacKenzie Falls have revealed a significant rock fall risk from the cliff above the large rock shelf where visitors gather.

Access to the base of the Falls is still available via the walking track, however to ensure visitor safety, Parks Victoria is re-directing people away from the area on the other side of the Falls and access to this area via the stone steps.

Please note that the walking track at the base of the Falls may be crowded, especially over busy long weekends and Easter. For visitor safety, please inform visitors to stay on the walking track and keep off rocks at the base as

they can be wet and slippery. To miss the crowds,  we recommend to visitors that they should consider visiting early morning or later in the afternoon.

Planned Works –  MacKenzie Falls temporarily closed from Wednesday 22nd to Friday 24th of March

Works will include removing rock stepping stones over the river that were previously installed by Parks Victoria.

During these works – the walking track to base of the base of the Falls will be temporarily closed.  Broken Falls and views to MacKenzie Falls from the Bluff Lookout walk will remain open during this time.

Once the work is complete visitors will be able to again access to the base of MacKenzie Falls from the popular walking track at the MacKenzie Falls carpark, and the Mackenzie Falls River walk from Zumsteins.

Further improvements are planned as part of the MacKenzie Falls Revitalisation project.
