Mount Samaria State Park



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.

Directions - 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.

Things to do
Camping and picnicking: 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. Creek water is available at most sites, but supply may be limited during drier periods. Supply your own drinking water.

Walking: The park features a range of walking tracks to experience the semi-remote nature of the park. Walks (one way distances) include Wild Dog Falls & Lookout (1.5km), Back Creek Falls (1.5 km), Mt Samaria Summit (2.5km or 4.8 km), Tramway walk (3.8 km) and Wileman Track (7km).

Lookouts: Experience spectacular views from Mt Samaria Summit, Rocky Point Lookout and Wild Dog Creek Falls.

Wildflowers: During spring and early summer the forest is alive with brilliant displays of wildflowers.
