More about family stays in Bright

Bright, nestled amongst the mountains, is the most popular basecamp town for activities in the Victorian High Country. It sits in the valley with the Ovens River passing through the North of the town and wooded mountainsides in all directions.

If you've only ever visited the High Country in Winter, it's worth putting it on your list for all the other seasons – each season paints the landscape in a different colour palette and fills your holidays with different activities.

Once you've locked in your accommodation, then plan your days with the best things to do in Bright.

How to get last minute family accommodation in Bright?

Accommodation in Bright can be hard to come by, especially during the high demand school holiday and public holiday periods. Try these tips to find affordable accommodation just in time.

👶 Travelling with an infant

When travelling with an infant, consider buying a portacot or safely co-sleeping. This can often unlock many more hotel options which may otherwise not work for you.

Travelling with young kids

Similarly, bringing a small inflatable mattress and a sleeping bag can be the difference between locking-in accommodation or missing out.

In either of these scenarios, you may need to:

  • list fewer kids when searching accommodation sites online
  • make sure the property policy is ok with this; you may need you to get in touch with them
