We also have a 5-day Autum in Bright tour option, which visits more attractive and interesting destinations.
Day 1. Melbourne to Myrtleford
Departing Melbourne at 7.00AM, we commence our spectacular 4-day scenic holiday in the Alpine Area of Bright country town renowned for its magnificent avenue of trees which are flaming red, golden and copper in autumn and is also the gateway to Victoria’s Snowfields.
After lunch, we drive along the snow road and through the Ovens Valley. We stop to look at the Phoenix Tree, which was carved out of the trunk and roots of a huge River Red Gum.
We then check into our motel and take some time to explore many facilities that are on offer, then freshen up for dinner at a local restaurant.
(Including Morning Tea, Wine Tasting, and Dinner. Lunch at own cost)
Day 2. Mt Buffalo/Milawa/Chiltern/Yackandandah
After a hearty breakfast, we head off towards one of the Alpine Regions, Mt Buffalo. As we wind our way up the mountain and take it in the beautiful surroundings and its history. Once on top of the mountain, we will visit the “Grand Old Lady” – the Buffalo Chalet where we have our morning tea break.
We then head towards Chiltern with a visit to Chiltern Athenaeum and Lisa Bishop Studio & Art Store as we explore the area before heading towards Yackandandah for dinner at Star Hotel Yackandandah, noted for its house-smoked meats, local produce and home of Two Pot Brewery.
We’ll then head back to our motel for a good night’s rest.
(Including Breakfast, Wine tasting & Dinner. Lunch at own cost)
Day 3. Beechworth/Bright
Today we visit Beechworth and its famous bakery for lunch. Beechworth is reminiscent of the flamboyant gold rush era. Wide tree-lined streets and dignified buildings are a beautiful backdrop to the four seasons. The sweetly perfumed spring gardens and sparkling summer days contrast the rich colours of changing leaves in autumn and frosty winter mornings. Beechworth is regarded as Victoria’s best-preserved historic gold mining town, preserving a rich legacy from our 19th century. It is home to 32 buildings listed by the National Trust including the Powder Magazine and Beechworth Cemetery and The Beechworth Court House, where the infamous Ned Kelly stood trial. We also visit the famous Beechworth Honey Shop to purchase the goods.
We then head towards Bright to the famous Avenue of Honour for taking photos of the autumn leaves and trees. It’s a living memorial dedicated to the memory of all who served in the fight against terror in Afghanistan and to those brave and selfless Australians who made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of freedom and liberty. With each tree symbolising a person, the Avenue symbolises the final journey home of the fallen, and preserves forever the gratitude and respect the nation bestows on all those to whom we owe a debt… that can never be repaid.
Lastly, we head back to our motel for a BBQ dinner or at a restaurant.
(Including Breakfast & Dinner. Lunch at own cost)
Day 4. Returning to Melbourne
After breakfast, we commence our journey home via Benalla to see Benalla Street Art & Murals, then onto Euroa via Merton and Molesworth to Yea and Killingworth.
We then stop for lunch (at own cost) at the Killingworth Hill Cafe & Whisky Bar, and also enjoy the atmosphere of the past with all the memorabilia of the museum.
Finally, we depart Yea as we head homeward bound via Melba Hwy arriving back home by 18.00.
(Including Breakfast. Lunch at own expense)
