Located approx 3.5 hours from Melbourne in the foothills of the High Country, Bright is well known for its festivals, particularly during autumn when the town is a myriad of yellows, oranges and browns as the trees shed their leaves.

The Resort is set on 5 acres of natural bushland in a semi rural setting and features 34 single storey units (34 x two bedroom), outdoor swimming pool (a heated dome coves the outdoor pool during the winter months), indoor spa, sauna, miniature train,  mini golf, lawn bowls, games room, adults only lounge, tennis courts, volley ball, basketball, children’s playground and there’s the famous Holiday Concepts Pancake Breakfast.
Bright is truly the destination for all seasons.  Autumn is a canvas of colour, brisk mornings, sunny days and cool nights invite adventure, exploration and lots of food and wine indulgence.  If you want to scale the skies, ride the rivers or be cosy and decadent beside a toasty open fire, autumn in Bright is a special getaway experience.  Events and Festivals highlight the season.  Most notable are the famous Autumn Festival with the Wandiligong Nut Festival, the Autumn Art Exhibition and the bikes, cars and live musical festival of Brighter Days.

Winter means snow and Bright is the ideal home base for the winter sport enthusiast.  Three major snow resorts can be easily accessed from Bright with Mt. Buffalo only a 45 minute drive and Falls Creek & Mt. Hotham just 75 minutes away.  Bright can cater for all your snow needs.  You can visit a different mountain every day.

Just as impressive as autumn, spring in Bright is a veritable bouquet of colour! Everything comes to life with startling clarity.   Locals proudly open their garden gates to boast their colourful bounty.   Snow fed creeks and rivers roar and the skies overhead are a brilliant blue.   Aerial sports and taking on the rapids seem highly inviting even to the fainthearted!  Just like autumn, festivals and events abound in spring such as the iconic Rod Run with Street Rods, Classic and Custom cars, music and more to keep everyone entertained.

During summer have a picnic on the banks of a shady river, catch a fresh trout in an alpine stream and sip the great wines of the alpine valleys at a street side café.   The heart of the gourmet district offers freshly picked berries, homemade ice creams, cheese, wine, tantalizing restaurants and cool evening breezes.
