Bright & District

-

WHEN autumn arrives, there is no better place to be than in Bright where the leaves turn multiple shades of yellow, orange and red.

Although the annual Bright Autumn Festival is not going ahead this year do not let that stop you from planning your autumn getaway in Bright.

The Mountains to Murray Rail Trail will take you along a diverse and ever-changing landscape from natural bushland to verdant farmland, unexpected­ly delightful valleys and some of the most spectacula­r mountain ranges.

With more than 100 kilometres of sealed and off-road trails between Wangaratta, Beechworth, Rutherglen, Myrtleford and Bright, you can partake of some of Australia’s finest gourmet produce, renowned wines and handcrafte­d beers.

In Bright itself you will find all your cycling needs from bike hire, support services and a trail network which offers a unique mix of trails for all skill levels.

The Ovens River flows through the heart of Bright and is a fantastic place to enjoy a picnic along its banks or (if the weather is still warm enough) to let the kids enjoy the splash park.

Many festivals are offering alternativ­e methods and ways to enjoy their annual events so make sure you stay up to date online and via social media to ensure you do not miss out on your favourite season in your favourite town.
