Set in tall, shady eucalypt forest, Mount Samaria State Park offers a cool and quiet retreat for beautiful walks, camping and picnicking. The Mount Samaria range incorporates a variety of scenery with spectacular vistas over the Victorian Alps, granite outcrops, high waterfalls and historic remains. Explore the park by foot, mountain bike or scenic drive and discover its tranquility and beauty. During spring and early summer the forest is alive with brilliant displays of wildflowers. The park features a range of walking tracks to experience the semi-remote nature of the park. The lookouts let you experience spectacular views from Mt Samaria Summit, Rocky Point Lookout and Wild Dog Creek Falls. Within the park, Spring Creek Sawmill and Samaria Well offer camping and picnicking facilities. Walk-in campsites are at Wild Dog Falls Creek and Camphora and all sites have toilets and fireplaces. Mount Samaria State Park is 130kms north-east of Melbourne, 28kms south of Benalla on the Samaria Road via Swanpool, and 14kms north of Mansfield via the Whitfield Road. A gravel road traverses the range from north to south and, although steep and rocky in places, is open all year to most vehicles.

We checked out Mount Samaria State Park recently, wild roads in, definitely glad to be here in the summer or we would probably not have made it through even with our 4x4. We did some of the hikes, they were not too hard for any level of fitness and the surround scenery was incredible. Definitely an excellent park to check... More

Having moved to the area I wanted to find somewhere with a view of the region - My Samaria provided that. The drive up slippery red dirt roads in autumn isn't for your standard cars but was manageable in a 4wd vehicle (Subaru wagon in my case). A short walk from near the top takes you to the peak where... More
