Great Alpine Road Visitor Guide

GREAT ALPINE ROAD VISITOR GUIDE | PAGE 43 POREPUNKAH Give me a home among the pine trees Situated only a four-minute drive from Bright – and right on the banks of the Ovens River – Porepunkah Pines Holiday Park is the perfect place to get away, relax and enjoy everything the Porepunkah/Bright area has to offer, including the amazing scenery of the nearby mountain ranges.It is a relatively small park, boasting lovely, established trees and grassed sites. Along with having 21 cabins, two houses (one of which can accommodate a group of up to 12 people), and 65 powered campsites (four with ensuites), the park has recently expanded its options even further, with the addition of brand new, three-bedroom Riverview Villas. There are options to suit all budgets, from ensuite budget cabins through to superior spa cabins, and family-sized homes. And if you'd like to bring your dog, the park allows dogs with all powered-site bookings. The park's river frontage makes it ideal for fishing and swimming – especially at this time of year! A favourite pastime of park guests is to jump into the river with an inflated car-tyre tube or air mattress to enjoy a leisurely float down to the Porepunkah Park/Pub, before wandering back along the riverside walking track. If you're looking for a warmer style of dip, there's an onsite 30-metre, solar-heated pool, as well as a children's water park that is a big hit with all. There's also a fully-fenced children's play area, and a games room with pool table, arcade games and a separate TV room for movies. If you're into cycling, you'll be in heaven at Porepunkah Pines Holiday Park, with the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail (easily accessible via a short path) providing a leisurely 25-minute ride into Bright. Mountain bike riders won't be disappointed either, with lots of nearby tracks to test your skills. Walking tracks are also plentiful, with something to suit all levels of fitness and experience. It's also worth taking a short drive up to the top of nearby Mt Buffalo, where you can visit the famous Mt Buffalo Chalet and take-in the spectacular valley views from the lookout platform.
