Beau­ti­ful Bright

North East Tourist News - - Bright & District -

LEAFY and stun­ning at all times of year, Bright makes for a great fam­ily es­cape all year round.

The town is sur­rounded by the Alpine Na­tional Park and Mount Buf­falo Na­tional Park, mak­ing it just a hop, skip and a jump away from an ac­tive af­ter­noon’s bush­walk­ing, bird watch­ing or ac­tiv­i­ties such as na­ture or land­scape photography.

You can also en­joy a cy­cle along the Mur­ray to Moun­tains Rail Trail or the lo­cal world class cy­cle ter­rain of the lo­cal moun­tain bike trail net­work.

In sum­mer you can en­joy fish­ing or a dip in the cool, crisp Ovens River, or en­joy a pic­nic in lo­cal park­land, or even head to nearby Lake Catani for an ac­tive fam­ily day out.

Bright of­fers a large range of ac­com­mo­da­tion to suit all bud­gets, as well as many thriv­ing lo­cal restau­rants and cafes, invit­ing small busi­ness and much more.

While you are in the area, just an hour’s drive from Bright into the Kiewa Val­ley, the an­nual Ded­erang Races will be held on Jan­uary 4 and at­tract visi­tors from all over the state.
