Beautiful Bright

Beautiful Bright

Bright! It’s always the right time of year to visit the beautiful township of Bright, and early autumn is no exception. Resplendent in autumn hues and with the natural beauty of the European trees changing colour before winter, it makes a perfect base to explore Victoria’s High Country.

The scenery of the Victorian High Country is always awash with colours, from the warm autumn colours of rich reds and falling golden leaves, to the emerald greens and bursting

spring buds of the European tree lined streets. Enjoy the brisk mornings, sunny days and cool nights in beautiful Bright as we explore the surrounding regions including Falls Creek, Mt Buffalo and Mt Beauty. A tour that will wow your camera and one of our favourite destinations—once you’ve visited, you’ll want to go back.
