Sambar Park is fortunate to occupy a unique 80 Acre parcel of land in the heart of the Howqua Valley which takes in a magnificent 1.3 km sweep of private river frontage. The house sits on a ridge with commanding valley views and the rear boundary abuts State Forest and Alpine National Park; a magnificent area to explore.

Just being there, watching the Kangaroos and the wildlife and breathing the fresh mountain air, is an experience of a lifetime. If you want some action, the recreational opportunities within the property, and at your doorstep, offer something for everyone

The house is architect designed to take full advantage of the magnificent position. Built from local stone the open plan design of 40+ squares offers an inviting living area whether it is for 2 people or 12.

Massive recycled woolstore beams support the vaulted timber...

Sambar Park is truly exquisite. The property is set in a stunning valley, with its own river frontage, with swimming hole, dam with yabbie nets, lawned areas and nature all around. The house is great for an escape with friends, there is plenty of space, and the spa provides a great end to the day. I can only imagine how...

What an amazing property, for what was an amazing weekend with a few mates. We will definitely be back. Nestled on over 80 acres we did it all. Hiked in the bush, enjoyed the stars, fished in the river, sat around the fire and heard no other sound but mother nature. The property is finely manicured by the exceptional caretakers...

How to get there
If you are using a GPS or similar, we advise putting in Mansfield and then 325 Howqua River Road, Howqua, Victoria 3723 as sometimes they can lead you in the back way, which although shorter in kilometers, the roads are gravel, extremely rough and only suitable for 4WD’s.
Take the Mt Buller/Jamieson Road out of Mansfield, turn right signposted Jamieson (C511)s Mansfield Airport is at the corner. You will pass Mansfield Zoo, Gough’s Bay and Mac’s Cove turn offs. After 23kms of winding road you will go across the Howqua River Bridge. Turn left down Howqua River Rd signposted Sambar Park, we are 3.25kms on left past Camp Howqua and just past sharp left hand bend.
