Murray To Mountains Rail Trail

Bright is a small town close to the Victorian Alps with a population of less than 3000 people. Bright is located about 3 hours and 45 minutes northeast of Melbourne along the Great Alpine Road, which winds through mountains, valleys and forests, and past rivers, vineyards and farms, making getting there a joy in itself. Bordering Mount Buffalo National Park, Bright offers a cozy getaway to majestic Alpine scenery with a variety of birds and other animals.

Although trains no longer run from the township, the Bright Railway Station has been preserved as a local history museum. Through the towns of Myrtleford, Beechworth, and Wangaratta, cyclists can still travel the 95km Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail and experience the same route that former train passengers would have traveled.
