Justifiably one of Victoria’s favourite year-round holiday places, Bright and its surrounding villages are known as much for its spectacular autumn colour as for its perfect location on the Ovens River, nestled between the Mount Buffalo and Alpine National Parks.
Bright Riverside Holiday Park serves as a great base from which to explore the whole region – for day trips to the snow in winter or during the rest of the year, to experience the myriad of special places and outdoor adventures on offer in and around the Ovens and Kiewa Valleys and the spectacular High Country above. Spring is a particularly special time of the year with mature gardens crowded with blooms of dogwoods, daffodils, irises, roses, annuals and everything else in between.
There’s a lot to love about Bright because apart from river swimming, bike riding, camping, wildlife spotting and horse riding, there’s fly fishing, golf, tennis, croquet, bowls and a stack of fun and funky festivals.
