It is interesting to note that the trees in Delany Avenue were intentionally planted in such a way that burning red leaves of oak intermingle with the dark green of cedar trees to create a colour contrast.
While nobody can predict the best time for all the trees to blaze with autumnal colour, I am guessing the autumn festival will be a safer bet. It is Bright's annual festival which last for 10 days to celebrate wonderful autumn colours and autumn produce of the valley of Victoria Alpine High Country.
With its close proximity to the mountain and ski resorts of Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek, and other natural attractions such as the Alpine National Park and Mt Buffalo National Park, it is a popular tourist centre. There are numerous short town walks to allow walkers to experience the sight and sounds of the valley's ever changing waterways.
Just to get a feel of how breathtaking Bright is in autumn, drive up the unsealed road to Tower Hill Lookout (track starts at turn off on Great Alpine Road approximately 2 kilometres from Bright centre on the Porepunkah side) for a panorama view.
