Alpine Valley Wineries
If sampling fine food and wine is your idea of a great trip away, then Bright is the place for you. Lounge the day away at one of our many wineries, drive yourself, or to truly relax, take a bus or limousine with one of Bright's friendly tour operators. The wineries are a sight to behold, the wines are fabulous and the scenery just breathtaking.
Mt Buffalo National Park
Wow, is the best way to describe the feeling you get as you enter Mt Buffalo National Park. Swimming and canoeing at Lake Catani or one of the breathtaking waterfalls. Bushwalking and picnicing. For the more adventurous there is snow skiing, bike riding, abseiling and rock climbing. We assure you that your first visit will not be your last.
Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail
The Rail Trail is more than just a cycle path. It is a gateway to Victoria's North East. The sealed bitumen surface provides a safe, family friendly path on which you can take in the spectactular scenery.
