Bright is a town in Victoria's High Country.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

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.

There are other bus service to Omeo, by Omeo Bus. [2]
