Howqua Dale for 28 years operated as Australia’s premium Gourmet Retreat and Cooking School. We are now pleased to open our doors on a more casual basis to happy travellers passing through or specially choosing RIVERHOUSE at Howqua Dale for its calm beauty, as self contained holiday accommodation B&B or special event.

The exquisite garden, serenity, scenery, river, tennis court and pool will restore your spirits. We look forward to welcoming you to the Howqua!

“Sarah you are a gem! Thanks for making sure Howqua Dale stays available for us all to come and share. Once a¬†Gourmet Retreat, now a self catering haven for us. Loved every minute of our tennis weekend at Howqua Dale.”
