About the neighbourhood
Bright (including Wandiligong and Porepunkah) are among most beautiful towns, particularly in autumn and spring, on the edge of the Snowy Mountains. Situated 308 km north-east of Melbourne, the township and shire of Bright is nestled in the beautiful Ovens Valley and surrounded by the towering Australian Alps.
