    In autumn, Bright’s famous avenues of huge deciduous trees – oaks, elms, poplars and Japanese maples – many of which are now more than 70 years old, paint the town red, orange, gold and yellow.

    This is a true cool climate region and our wines have been honoured with awards and rave reviews. Many invite you to enjoy their wines with local cheese and antipasto platters, traditional Tuscan food or a menu created around seasonal local produce.

    Challenge yourself with 'The Big Walk' from the bottom of Mount Buffalo to the Chalet. Take in stunning panoramic views from the Gorge. There’s plenty of hiking and walking tracks in and around Bright. See for more information.
