Bright (including Wandiligong and Porepunkah)
Beautiful township, particularly in autumn and spring, on the edge of the Snowy Mountains.
Situated 308 km north-east of Melbourne and 310 m above sea level, the township and shire of Bright is one of Victoria's most attractive tourist destinations. Nestled in the beautiful Ovens Valley and surrounded by the towering Australian Alps, Bright offers good quality off-the-mountain accommodation to those wishing to ski at the nearby resorts of Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek. In autumn the russet tones and the colourful blaze, against the backdrop of the pine-clad hills, adds to the appeal of this scenic district.
