The basin extends from the Mackenzie and Rocky Mountains in the west, through the Interior Plains to the Canadian Landforms of the McKenzie River Basin book in the east. This broad expanse results in eight of the fifteen Canadian terrestrial ecozones being represented within the Mackenzie River Basin.

These ecozones range from the boreal forest of north-central Alberta to the arctic tundra in the north and east, with permafrost. The basin extends approximately kilometres (62 mi) north to south, and 40 kilometres (25 mi) east to west.

The Southern Alps constitute its western edge. The Mackenzie Basin is located entirely within South Canterbury. Using State Highway 8, it can be accessed via Burkes Pass (elevation m / 2, ft) from the north and the Lindis Pass (elevation m / 3, ft) from the south, or via.
