Bright is a small town in Victoria’s High Country, within Ovens Valley and at the foothills of the Victorian Alps. Bright is 3 to 4 hours drive north from Melbourne, 3 to 4 hours drive south from Wagga Wagga and 5 1/2 hours from Canberra. The closest Airport is Albury, a scenic 90 minute hour drive away. It is in the Alpine Shire Council local government area.
The town is a major tourist centre because of its proximity to the ski resorts of Mt Hotham and Mt Buffalo, as well as because of the still-visible remains of alluvial goldfields. Celebrate spring at the annual Bright Spring Festival.
