Cold means snow and Bright is the ideal home base for the winter sport enthusiast.  Three major snow resorts can be accessed easily from Bright with Mt. Buffalo only a 45 minute drive and Falls Creek and Mt. Hotham approximately 75 minute drive from Bright.  Bright can cater for all your snow needs.  Chains, skis, toboggans and clothing can all be hired or bought from local businesses.

The greatest advantage of choosing to base in Bright is that you can pick a different mountain everyday!  Also, Bright is considerably warmer than ‘up top’ and getting back to warmer temperatures, heaps of great places to dine and just to re-coup far from the madding crowds may be just what you need after a hard days snow romp!  Aside from snow access, Bright is a lovely destination to escape to in winter.  Lots of open fires, fantastic gourmet foods and wines and plenty of businesses open to pamper you.

See for yourself what Bright has to offer in winter.
