Every time we stay at Bright, I do this exhilarating walk. My husband enjoys the excellent cycling paths, whereas I walk the trails. This walk to the lookout, is located at the back of Bright:-you turn at Star Street,cross the river and follow the signs to "Apex Lookout".It is well signed and the board states it takes 1&1/2 hours,but it...

I have been to Bright a couple of times and absolutely love the place. The trail beside the Ovens River (well large creek really) is a must do when you visit. I stayed on the down stream side of the town both times and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet walk back to my accommodation, beside the river. Nothing but burbling water... More

There are a number of enjoyable trails around Bright : the Canyon Walk, the Cherry walk, the Apex lookout walk, Huggins lookout and the Valley View Walking Trail. They are well signposted through classic bush. For views try the Apex walk.

Forget the car , bring your walking shoes or your mountain bike- so many fantastic short/medium/long walks around Bright and Wandiligong. Nice easy trails that are very well posted -just loved the river walks and getting away from the traffic and people. Its a great place to get back to nature and wind down from the normal hustle and bustle... More

Its one of the great opportunities in Bright to take advantage of the many walking trails. This like many others is easy to navigate and a pleasant way to see the countryside

Most people think that all the mountain bike tracks in Bright are in the pines - wrong! Valley View is an awesome technical downhill trail that links at the bottom to Dermots Trail - take a left at the bottom to ride Dermots through to Walkers Lane. Other native mountain bike trails are off Huggins Lookout, Apex Hill (on the... More

This is a real bush walking experience but the map I printed from the website does not reflect the true walking trail. The trail is a long longer & zig-Zaggy to go up the mountain but at one point, we just did a u-turn as we weren't sure where the trail would lead us too. Due to all the trees... More

On arrival in Bright one can't help but notice the beauty of the place, its forty odd years since we were in Bright last and it has not changed that much at all, still as beautiful. the autunm tones of the trees are a picture, unfortunately the weather was against us as being quite wet but the scenery was not...

Although there are several :Easy" walks, within the Bright area, the Valley Vies walk is moderate to medium in comparison. The starting point is on Hargreaves Street, but visit the information centre for much more details. Click on the site below for a downloadable PDF, of the walks within the Bright area that we found very interesting and comprehensive. http://www.alpinevalleygetaways.com.au/f.ashx/Bright-Wandi-Short-Walks.pdf
