"Beautiful part of the state"

We have twice visited Bright and are due to go back for a couple of days this school holiday. I love it! I love the friendliness of the town people, the lovely main street and shopping area, the pathways and town centre clock, the views of the hills and the changing colours of the trees. I have been to the school and found it offered lots of opportunities to students and families, and the feeling I walked away with was 'what a wonderful caring environment to raise a family'. Whilst I am not really a skier and fussed about the snow season, there are so many places to visit and things to do close to Bright - Beechworth, wineries, markets, walking tracks, sporting facilities, river, fishing..... I hope to relocate to the area with my family as soon as possible.

"A lovely spot to raise a family"

Bright is a small country town, and a lovely spot to raise a family. The town has a school and a number of other facilities, including shops and restaurants. There is an abundance of recreational activities in the area, including golf, bushwalking, mountain-biking and skiing in the nearby mountain ranges in winter.

It is a very pretty town, particularly so in autumn when all of the leaves change colour to warm shades of reds, yellows and orange. It does get very cold in winter, and can even snow.

Just over 300 kilometres from Melbourne, Bright can be accessed by the major highways and roads in the area.

"Nice quiet town"

I always drive through Bright whenever I visit Falls Creek in the Victorian Snowfields. It has nice bakeries in the area and I always stop by for a caramel slice which gives me plenty of energy when I hit the slopes. There is also one other particular bakery which has really nice cakes and you can sit down and actually enjoy them. I am sure if you drive through the town you will find it, since the town itself is pretty small. I have only ever visited during winter but I did happen to see an ice cream shop that says it is closed until summer, which I find quite interesting. The town is so laid back that you see the bank tellers just sipping at their coffees chatting away until some customers come in, you will never see that in the city.
