Overview

Bright

Cruise into historic Bright, a picturesque village in Victoria's High Country. Wander along the Ovens River that meanders through town and explore the stunning forest all around. Witness the deciduous trees in their autumnal splendour and return throughout the year to take advantage of the village's proximity to Victoria's alps, national parks and home-grown food and wine.

Two-wheel adventures

Two-wheel action is superb around Bright, whether you're a road cyclist or a mountain biker. Cruise the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail through the Ovens River Valley, challenge yourself on the 7 Peaks Alpine Ascent, or sign up for the Audax Alpine Classic – Victoria's premier alpine road cycling event.

Food and wine

Visit boutique wineries, stock up on stunning produce and taste local ingredients in village cafes and restaurants. Linger in Bright Brewery or the Grape and Grain Bar, sample the inspired Asian flavours at Tani Eat Drink, or finagle a reservation at Simone's, one of Victoria's most celebrated restaurants.

Time your visit for the High Country Harvest Festival. Join in the festivities, learn new recipes and meet the makers of some of Victoria's finest food, wine and craft beer.

Natural wonders

With plenty of big houses and multiple cabin retreats on offer, Bright is perfect for those big family trips or getaways with friends. Base yourself in Bright for winter snow activities, and return in spring and summer for hiking, kayaking, and even ballooning over the Alpine National Park.

View Bright's picturesque setting on the Ovens River from lookouts at Mount Buffalo. See scenery like nothing else on the 230-kilometre Bogong Alpine Way (part of the Great Alpine Road), which loops through Bright, Mount Beauty, Falls Creek and over Dinner Plain and Mount Hotham.
