Riverbend Homestead is a traditional Australian farm homestead situated in the middle of a working farm nestled in the upper Ovens Valley, 5 minutes from Bright. Riverbend Homestead is situated on a private 150 acre working farm nestled in the Ovens Valley. The Ovens River runs a 3.5 km stretch through the property which is surrounded by state forest just waiting for you to explore.

Riverbend Homestead is the perfect house to rent for 12 persons including adults and children. With heaps of room to unwind and relax. With commanding views and the warm fireplace it is the perfect family and group destination to reprogram our busy lives. Relax on the balcony and watch the kids meet and feed the chickens and sheep. You and your kids will enjoy the garage that doubles as a games room. With pin pong and basic toys and a couple of bikes for use on the farm the kids will find lots to keep them happy and you can unwind while keeping an eye on them.

After a day of exploring the local area you, your family and friends can enjoy time in the spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area leading out to a huge deck. Riverbend Homestead comes with a well equipped kitchen overlooking a comfortable living area. The enclosed wood burner fireplace will keep everyone toasty warm on those cold winter days and nights. In summer, the open floor plan lets the cool alpine breeze flow through the house. Reverse cycle heating and cooling is also available. Have dinner on the large deck and enjoy the views of Mt Feathertop in the distance. The fresh alpine air and views of the snow-covered mountains in winter is totally breathtaking.

The snow-capped Mt Feathertop in winter reminds you how close you are to Mt Hotham and Falls Creek ski fields. The township of Bright is just a 5 minutes drive. Riverbend Homestead has the best of both worlds. Riverbend Homestead is the ideal winter location situated near to Mt Hotham, Falls Creek or Mt Buffalo. Just an easy drive. You can take a bus or taxi from Harrietville each morning. Mt Hotham and Falls Creek offer multi-mountain passes so you can ski both mountains.

Horse riders can bring their own horses and accommodated them in the horse stables and 8 separate paddocks surrounding the Riverbend Homestead property.

There are so many reasons why you will keep coming back to beautiful Bright. Every season is a new experience and there is something on offer for every holiday maker. Book with us to receive discounts and special deals on your winter ski/snowboard, clothing and chain hire from Hoy's Skis or JD's Ski Hire which is located in Bright.
