Things you MUST do whilst staying at Eugenie Cottage

1. Ride the bicycle trails .. that radiate out from Eugenie Cottage, passing the door to Wandiligong where you can visit the largest living Hedge Maze in Australia. Have a lunch or coffee with a piece of their enormous famous passionfruit sponge cake. The gardens surrounding the cafe are sooooooo relaxing.

Or ride in the opposite direction along the Bike Trail to Porepunkah and beyond. Stopping along the way at the little cafe' at Porepunkah which serves delicious food and drinks. A few kms further along you will pass Boyntons Winery another great place to stop for a refresher.

2. Walk the many nature trails around Bright, Canyon walk being a favorite.. right along the river walking in the footsteps of our pioneers .. viewing the areas they mined for gold.. with descriptions of their activities along the way, crossing swing bridges that span the Ovens river. There are many walking trails surrounding Bright.

3. The Old Tobacco Sheds is a favourite place to browse for antiques, with historical displays covering the old Tobacco Industry of years gone by.

4. A drive up into the High Country over Mt Hotham and Dinner Plain and on towards Omeo. The views are amazing of Mt Feathertop..you feel like you are on top of the world.. Another day .. over Tawonga Gap to see an amazing view of the highest mountain in Vic...Mt Bogong... down into Mt Beauty, then up to Falls Creek and the High Plains ...beautiful country of rock formations, Rocky Valley Dam... Mountain cattlemans Huts and beyond... There are so many different experiences to enjoy from Bright... Snow in Winter, a skiers paradise... Falls Creek is just over an hour drive from Eugenie Cottage, a perfect base for skiing one day and Mt Hotham the next... Mt Buffalo is only 35 mins away and perfect for young families to enjoy the snow.. with toboggan runs and cross country skiing.

5. We have Wineries close by. A Boutique Brewery in town, with live music during the day, of a weekend. Two hotels, one with an outdoor area and live music at night. All walking distance from Eugenie Cottage.

6. An amazing childrens playground beside the river... keeps the toddlers and pre schoolers happy, a toddler pool.

River swimming in Summer with a diving board, and slide...for older children and adults. All in the same area.

7. Fine dining,family restaurants, bistro's, and pizza etc. every style of eating is available. Plus the supermarket is 250m from Eugenie Cottage, to supply all your BBQ needs, for a lovely relaxing meal at home, whilst the kids play table tennis in the rumpus room/garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fantastic place to stay with a group of friends/family. This was my second visit (with a third booked in for August) and again Eugenie Cottage exceeded expectations. It is spotlessly clean, has everything you could possibly need (including a games room in the back shed which we discovered), and has room to move. The sheets and towels are quality. It was lovely to arrive on a cold winters afternoon and have the wood heater all laid out ready to light. Will definitely return again and again. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very comfortable and well equipped house in the centre of Bright, perfect for a family holiday. The 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms allow extended family or small groups of friends to stay. For our extended family that included small children, the separate living areas and secure garden provided plenty of room for us all and allowed the children to run and ride around happily and be generally very active. A cot was provided on request for the toddler and this fitted comfortably in the front bedroom. With mostly great weather when we stayed, we were able to make good use of the barbeque and outdoor eating area. The owners have combined the charm of an older style bungalow with high quality furnishings and modern, well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. And the location is excellent, with just a short walk to the town centre, river, fantastic playground and all the facilities that lovely Bright has to offer. We had a great week here.
