Overview

Country living at its greatest. Set in the stunning Ovens Valley, there’s little wonder Bright – abundant with autumnal hues, winter mists, spring florals or summer shade- is known for the phrase  ‘Four Seasons in one Town.  Every Season.  Every Reason.’  The High Country is renowned for its ever contrasting seasons, and there is no better place to experience it all than in Bright. Majestic, tree lined avenues that transform with the season.   


Bright is stunning year round.  In the Autumn it is a canvas of color when the countless deciduous trees in town put on a remarkable display. Cold means snow and Bright is the ideal home base for the winter sport enthusiast with three major snow resorts easily accessed within a 45 to 75 minute drive.  Bright is wonderful in the winter, lots of open fires, fantastic gourmet foods, local wines and clean, brisk mountain air.  Spring is just as impressive as Autumn- showcasing an absolute bouquet of color.  Locals proudly open their garden gates to boast their colorful bounty.  Summer brings gourmet picnics, of lazy days and floating in shady rivers, catching fresh trout in an alpine stream and sipping the great wines of the Alpine High Country at a street side café.  


With its close proximity to the Alpine National Park, Falls Creek, Mt Hotham and Mt Buffalo, Bright is the perfect base for anyone looking for an adventure. You can enjoy downhill and cross country skiing and snowboarding in winter, and bushwalking, trail riding, fishing, cycling, windsurfing and canoeing in the summer.
