If you are looking for a beautiful location in Victoria none can surpass the beautiful and cosy Bright. This is a small township and shire that rests within the Ovens Valley and it is surrounded by the Australian snow fields. If you are interested in skiing or alpine activities, this is a great place to go and stay in a bed and breakfast.
If you go there to ski you can find resorts in Mt. Buffalo, Mt. Hotham and Falls Creek. If you go during the autumn you will find the trees have turned to beautiful auburn hues and they are wonderfully beautiful especially at sunset against the pine-clad hills. This gives a most breath taking scenic view.
Within the Bright area you can find many different types of accommodation including hotels, farm stays and bed and breakfast getaways. If you are staying by yourself or with an intimate companion you might try the Badrocks of Bright. This bed and breakfast in Bright gives you a warm and cosy room off from the main house. You will be five minutes from town and an hour from all the major mountains for skiing.
If you would like a more rural setting, you may choose a farm stay. There are Bright bed and breakfasts that offer traditional farmhouse breakfasts and are located in cosy cottages or century old farm houses. These will give you some of the most beautiful scenery in Bright Victoria.
Depending on when you go to Bright your b&b hosts can tell you about the local festivals and activities. You won’t want to miss the snow fields in winter, the Spring Festival, the Ovens River activities in the summer or the Autumn Festival and Gala Parade. All of these festivals will give you an idea of the local flavor of Bright.
You can also find a variety of activities to test your body skills in Bright from kayaking to climbing and cycling. For real adventure you can try paragliding through Porepunkah airfield and you can actually book this event when you book your bed and breakfast.
If you aren’t into sports, there are other local activities that you can enjoy and you can find out more when you check into your b and b. You might visit the community owned Bright Art Gallery where you can see displays of local artists.
When you want a different kind of experience go through the Wandiligong Maze then stop at the café before you head back to your b&b. The tourist guide says this is Australia’s largest living hedge maze and has 2km of pathways that are wonderfully surrounded by gardens that include heritage roses. An interesting point you may want to know if you are coming in from other countries, especially if you are used to September to October being fall, is that September through October is actually Australia’s spring.
If you are visiting in October, you may be there during the Bright Spring Festival. This is basically a celebration of spring and it is a time when you can visit 15 different flower gardens in bloom, of different sizes and smells see displays of glass sculpture at the Decorative Arts & Crazy Catz exhibit or attend the Sustainable Expo.
