Bright Accommodation

The good news is, Autumn Beauty Cottages has all of that covered! These luxurious cottages provide the perfect base from which to explore Bright and surrounds:

Close to town: Just a 5-minute walk to town along the rail trail, a scenic tree-lined walk passing right by the train museum – a beautiful way to get into town to take advantage of the boutique shops, restaurants, bars, pubs and wineries!

Great Views: Nestled at the base of the Mountains, look up and all you can see in front of you is a beautiful native tree-lined views. Look just in front of you and you’ll see the old train turntable site which is now a grassed area and parkland where you can sit on a rug and watch the bike riders and walkers go by, or play with the kids in the parkland. This area right in front of your accommodation also has beautiful tree-lined views.

Located on the Rail Trial: The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is one of Bright’s most famous features and the key to a great holiday. Being able to step straight out your front door right onto the Rail Trail is a wonderful way to make the most of your time in Bright, especially if you appreciate a good walk or hike! If you are an avid rider you can head down the trail towards any of the surrounding towns on the trail, or head off to one of the high country rides to really challenge yourself – Mount Buffalo, Falls Creek and Hotham await!

If you just want a leisurely ride, then head to one of the many local, award-winning wineries, the Punka Pub or Rail trail Café just 4 km from the accommodation. Or just roll around town to enjoy the beautiful Alpine views!

Also, with no road traffic between the accommodation and the rail trail, you can relax as your kids entertain themselves up and down the rail trail.

Great walks from the front door: There are multiple great walks and hikes right out your front door – no car necessary!

The beautiful canyon walk is just a short 2-minute stroll from the front door, starting at the River Precinct and hugging the Ovens River . This walk follows the Ovens River and takes you back into town, with the Bright Brewery providing the perfect stopping point to enjoy a drink overlooking the river. You can choose to turn around at the second swing bridge which makes it approximately a 6 km walk, or head down the Rail Bridge to add an extra 2 km walk.

The Valley View Hiking Trail is a hike up the mountain right in front of the accommodation. This hike is a formed path with some challenging inclines, but the reward is a spectacular view of the town, right down the Ovens Valley. You can also view the Autumn Beauty Cottages from the peak, but you will have to look hard as you are a long way up!

Another option is to head through town and out towards the Cherry Walk, a beautiful walk hugging each side of the river in tranquil bushland alongside some of the best watering holes Bright has to offer.

Or you can go for a casual stroll just out your front door into town or along the tree-lined rail trail.

Whatever your pace, there are plenty of options for you to enjoy!

Luxurious Accommodation: To make the most of your time in this beautiful part of the world, affordable luxury accommodation is the ideal compliment. Recently refurbished, the warm and inviting Autumn Beauty Cottages are cleverly designed with Hampton Style décor with every convenience you could possibly need for a short or long term stay.

Cooking facilities and full-size fridges are provided, as well as a BBQ so you don’t have to eat out every night (though you may want to with all the wonderful restaurants on offer!). Laundry facilities and separate toilet are provided for guest’s convenience. Each Cottage has its own private outdoor deck for dining and a wrap-around deck out the front if you want to sit on the lounger or bench to relax or read a book.

A double carpark, a rarity in Bright Accommodation, is provided, along with a bike shed to store your pride and joy road bike or mountain bike as well as the kids toys.
