Bright is a town in Victoria's High Country.
The main industry in Bright is tourism which focuses on the autumnal colors of European tress planted in the area. It is also the gateway to majestic alpine scenery.
Bright is at the end of a decommissioned railway spur from Wangaratta. V/Line buses still service the town, three times daily on weekdays, but once once a day on weekends. The buses connect with railway services at Seymour to Melbourne.
The old rail right-of-way is now a railtrail, and hiring a bike from Wangaratta and cycling to Bright is a good days cycle.
