Things to do

A Town for All Seasons

Bright is a picturesque village in the Alpine Valleys of North East Victoria, renowned for it’s beauty in all four seasons.  It has easy access to the stunning environments of the Alpine High Country around Mt Hotham and Falls Creek and the Mt Buffalo and Alpine National Parks.

Enjoy a stress free break in the lazy days of summer along the shady rivers, the blaze of colour and fallen leaves of autumn, the blossoms and myriad shades of green of spring or the crisp air and nearby snow resorts in a winter escape.
