Plantation Hill Homestead offers guests the best of both worlds when it comes to a premier tourist destination. The house is centrally located on the Great Alpine Road just 3km outside of Bright, and allows guests to get away from the holiday rush by enjoying a small acreage property that has its very own Ovens River and bush frontage. Relax and enjoy the amazing surroundings nestled between pine plantation hills, the river and even the Bright golf course.
The homestead is a classic bush style Australian country residence complete with a bullnose veranda. It has three bedrooms – a master queen, a long double in two divided sections with queen, single and trundle bed. At the back of the house is an enormous back room sleeping five double and single bunk, two bunks that includes a study desk, an entire wall of storage, a hidden TV and child's play room and its own ensuite bathroom. This house is easily capable of housing two larger families or three smaller families with options available for room configurations. By emailing and dealing with us directly, we can work out the best configuration and cost based on your needs.
The well-appointed country kitchen features a 90cm DeLonghi rotisserie oven and range, extra large French door fridge-freezer, drawer dishwasher and microwave. The main lounge area allows you to relax and watch television or surf the web using wi-fi internet. There is a second multi-purpose room tucked away in the back corner of the house where kids can play or teens can break-out and let the sound system rumble while enjoying DVD's. All the usual comforts of home such as washing machine and dryer will ensure ensure your stay is as practical as it is enjoyable.
NOW WITH FOXTEL ENTERTAINMENT BUNDLE AND SPORTS HD - PERFECT FOR FOOTY SEASON

Owner operated, we are committed to ensuring you have an amazing stay when you holiday in “Beautiful Bright”, and from the moment you walk in the front door we seek to make you and your family and friends feel welcome in your new short-term home.
Set on 2.5 acres of park-like surroundings you can easily find ways to stay entertained, from kicking a ball to playing cricket or even a spot of badminton on the lawn court. There are plenty of fruit and nut trees to graze from and a delightful grove where a giant redwood tree stands proud. String up a hammock and while away a hot summer day or throw some local produce on the BBQ.
Even better, head down from the back of the property to your very own secluded river hole overlooking the Bright golf course. This is a spot that will truly delight you - just keep it a secret when li-lo or inner tube loafing swimmers and kayakers pass by on their way from Bright to Porepunkah, or better yet, hop on your own and take a one-hour float down to the Porepunkah park.
Trail biking, mountain bike, 4WD and hiking enthusiasts can access plantation trails by simply crossing the Great Alpine Rd directly from the property and taking on the dirt.
The township of Bright is only two minutes 3km away by car. Plantation Hill Homestead lets you escape the tourists and create your own favourite piece of Alpine Victoria, and is close enough to enjoy everything the township offers, especially during its many festivals and events.
