Bright

Each year in autumn, the deciduous trees in the town of Bright and the surrounding countryside put on a breathtaking display of colour. Located on the beautiful Ovens River and nestled in the valley below Mount Buffalo, Bright's avenues of elms, chestnuts, poplars and scarlet oaks are enhanced by the gardens of local residents which contribute to the town's autumn splendour. Close to the Alpine National Park and within a short drive of the snowfields of Falls Creek, Mount Hotham and Mount Buffalo, Bright also offers a range of outdoor activities to entertain visitors all year round. Explore the town's many historic buildings and sites, which pay homage to the region's bustling gold rush beginnings. The wealth of food and wine in the Alpine Valleys is also fast becoming one of the town's most popular attractions with excellent 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. Popular local events include the Bright Autumn Festival in April/May and the Bright Spring Festival in November. Bright is 308 kilometres from Melbourne on the Great Alpine Road. Access is from the Hume Freeway at Wangaratta. You can also reach Bright via the Princes Highway through Bairnsdale and then onto the Omeo Highway and over the High Plains on the Great Alpine Road.
