Great Alpine Road Visitor Guide

PAGE 46 | GREAT ALPINE ROAD VISITOR GUIDE BRIGHT While you're in the Bright area, be sure to explore the stunning scenery of the Mount Buffalo and Alpine National Parks, which are an easy drive from the Bright township, and offer breathtaking mountain scenery. In summer and autumn, there are lots of wonderful trails to explore in this alpine region – including the famous Queen Victoria Loop – so be sure to bring your walking shoes or mountain bike. If you enjoy a bit of off-bitumen four-wheel-driving, you will have an endless number of easy (or not so easy) tracks from which to choose. Make sure you bring current four-wheel-drive maps (don't rely on your car GPS) to help you stay safe as you explore the bushland and mountain scenery.
