Bright & Surrounds

There is literally so much to do and see in this region that one visit to the Bright Alps Holiday House & Apartments will not be enough.

But that’s ok, with our great family/group facilities and reasonable pricing coming back again and again may just become a yearly ritual... and I could put money on the fact your ‘group’ will get bigger each time.

Bright Alps Holiday House & Apartments back on to the Racecourse plantation which provides easy access to join the beautiful ‘Cherry Walk’. This delightful loop walk follows the Ovens River through the Bright Township, crossing two bridges including a suspension bridge the kids will love, with lovely views over the river and passing the Memorial Arboretum with its kaleidoscope of colours in autumn.

For the Active

Skiing, snowboarding, and backcountry adventures await at Mt Hotham and Falls Creek.

Hiking in the high country is a wonderful way to get back to nature and practice appreciating all that is good in the world.

Bright is a natural playground for mountain bikers and with the sensational Mystic Mountain Park less than 5 minutes away you can play all day. Or for the serious road biker there is the Harrietville to Mt Hotham village climb – one of the most spectacular cycling climbs in Australia.

Swimming, yes swimming! In those hot summer months, there is nothing better than cooling off in the icy mountain water of the Ovens River. A walking track behind the Bright Alps Holiday House & Apartments leads you to a secluded little spot for a quick and refreshing dip away from the crowds.
