Spring in Bright and the surrounding Alpine areas is spectacular. Every year, Bright holds a Spring Festival where there are beautiful gardens to visit, cafes and restaurants in Bright to enjoy, walking tracks and bike trails to discover, along with a grand fireworks display and markets to enjoy. You can find out more here.

What more can we say about summer – Bright is one of the best places to spend it, by the river, in the splash park and then just nip up to the Riverdeck for lunch and a nice cold ice chocolate.

Again, another beautiful season in Bright – with the leaves turning and the abundance of colour it makes Bright one of the most beautiful places in Australia. The township celebrates with the Autumn festival over the months of April and May. Finishing with a Gala day with a market, music in the streets and a parade. To find out more go here.

Yes the cold does arrive, but with it comes Snow on Mt Hotham, Mt Buffalo and Falls Creek. This makes Bright the perfect spot to stay – why not start your day with a hearty breakfast at the Riverdeck and then you can pick a different mountain or place to visit each day. When you are back in Bright you can relax, away from the crowds and enjoy all of the amazing cafés and restaurants in Bright.
