Zumsteins, Victoria

Hike to Fish Falls, Grampians NP

2.9 Miles Total - 150 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Marti Chance

An easy hike along a river with the option to take a rewarding dip, or jump, into Fish Falls at the end.

Start at the Zumsteins Picnic Area Car Park, and follow the signs and track to Fish Falls to the right. You'll follow along the river for about 2.5km before coming up onto Fish Falls. The path is very easy to follow, and has some areas of gradual ascent/descent along the walk. Along the way you'll hike through some brush, but its fairly exposed so sunscreen/hat/etc are critical. I happened to see an emu on the path, but can't say this is typical. 

At Fish Falls, you can swim or jump from the rocks into the base of the waterfall (but be careful!). Its a less crowded, more laid back option than neighboring Mackenzie Falls! If you fancy, the track does continue all the way to Mackenzie Falls, or you can approach Fish Falls from the Mackenzie Falls car park. 

There are toilets and picnic shelters at the Zumsteins carpark. Bring your own drinking water. The distance given is round trip (4.6km return).

Fish Falls

A relatively easy hike to the location, and worth every step. Great to go to in the Summer if you’re keen on a swim! Safe water - a few slippery rocks. Overall great location!
