Suburb Profiles


Situated between Bright and Harrietville on the Great Alpine Road, the two little towns of Freeburgh and Smoko are home to some of the region’s most diverse horticultural products. Here you’ll find a berry and nut farm, plus orchards of chestnuts, hazelnuts and walnuts. Peaceful and tranquil, with view of the snow capped alps in Winter and gentle valley breezes and cool nights in the Summer. The Ovens River flows through the valley- offering great fishing and lovely secluded spots to cool off in Summer.
