Some of our recommendations
Taking to the area by foot or cycle is the best way to really experience Bright.
You can hire a bike at a number of places in town, once hired strap your helmet on and enjoy an easy ride along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, you can head in to Porepunkah (10km return), or perhaps to Wandiligong which is also 10km return.
For the cycle enthusiast why not keep heading past Porepunkah as far as you like (the trail goes forever!)
Spending time along beautiful Ovens River and soaking in the atmosphere of this beautiful place is what it is all about.
There are plenty of day trip options if you wish to drive around and see the extended areas such as picturesque Wandiligong – a historic village just 6km from Bright. While you’re there, why not try Australia’s largest living hedge maze or stop for lunch at the Wandi Pub, their food is delicious!
Perhaps a drive and a walk to the Eurobin Falls at the base of Mt Buffalo, then keep driving to The Horn at the summit to take in the magnificent views. Whilst you are out this way you can even squeeze in a visit to Bright Berry Farm to buy some pre-picked berries, ice-creams and sorbets. Sit under the trees, enjoying the famous Bright Berry Farms Berry Cup while soaking in the views of Mount Buffalo!
In the opposite direction you can head to Harrietville, with plenty to see and to. One of the most popular places at Harrietville is the Mountain Fresh Trout and Salmon Farm, definitely worth a visit. With free entry it makes a great family day out. Have a stroll through the many fish breeding ponds, feed the fish, and then catch a fish to bring home and cook on the BBQ for dinner!
There are plenty of nature-based activities such as walking and cycling, hiking and extreme sports/adventure options, as well as breathtaking scenery wherever you go.
So start reading and brush up on what to see and do in the provided brochures, try to squeeze in what you can but never fear we would happily welcome you back if you don’t get to fit it all in.
