Bright

 

Bright … It’s adventure, indulgence, pristine and diversity all in Nature’s Playground.

  • Population approximately 1,900
  • 308 kilometres north-east of Melbourne on the Great Alpine Road
  • Located at the foothills of the Australian alps
  • Close to Mt Hotham, Mount Buffalo and Falls Creek.


Located on the beautiful Ovens River and nestled in the valley below Mount Buffalo, the township of Bright is one of Victoria's most attractive tourist destinations.

This legacy of the original pioneers who planted the avenues of elms, chestnuts, poplars and scarlet oaks has been enhanced by the gardens of local residents that contribute to Bright's autumn splendour. At any time of the year you can explore the town's many historic buildings and sites, which pay homage to the region's bustling gold rush beginnings.

Close to the Alpine National Park and within a short drive of the snowfields of Falls Creek, Mt Hotham and Mount Buffalo, Bright also offers a range of outdoor activities to entertain visitors all year round. The wealth of food and wine in the Great Alpine Valleys is also fast becoming one of the town's most popular attractions with world-class wineries, stunning produce, award-winning restaurants and a casual café culture to choose from.

Follow the many walking and bicycle paths around the town and view its picturesque natural setting from lookouts over the valley and surrounding mountains. Along the river trails you'll find great fishing spots that are renowned for trout as well as safe swimming holes for a refreshing dip on warm summer days.
