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.

Peddling 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.

First-rate foodie scene

Visit boutique wineries, stock up on stunning produce and taste local ingredients in village cafes and restaurants. Linger in Bright Brewery, in excellent cafes such as Ginger Baker and Coral Lee and spend your nights sampling exciting dishes matched with fine wine, liquors and brews at Tomahawks and Walker Bros Wine Bar.

Join in the festivities, discover new recipes and meet the makers of some of Victoria's finest food, wine and craft beer. Learn from the best with an Italian cooking class run by Patrizia Simone, of Simone's restaurant fame, or time your visit for the High Country Harvest Festival. Duck out to the nearby villages of Wandiligong and Porepunkah and delight in more superb food and wine.

It's an alpine affair

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.
