The Club has decided that the Big4 Bright Holiday Park is our preferred place for accommodation.
“Year round, Bright grabs attention. Located on the Ovens River and in the shadows of Mount Buffalo, the town is extremely picturesque. Much of this beauty is attributed to Bright’s deciduous trees that cloak the town in a kaleidoscope of colour. BIG4 cabin, caravan, and campsite accommodation in Bright ensures it’s easy to take advantage of these stunning surrounds”.
We urge Members to book their accommodation requirements as soon as possible. Even though the Nationals are not being held during school holidays, Bright is an immensely popular summer holiday destination. Early accommodation enquiries proved that many accommodation places are already booked out in February of next year.
So, please book accommodation early for the four nights:
Monday 22 Feb
Tuesday 23 Feb
Wednesday 24 Feb
Thursday 25 Feb
