We had some time to spare before visiting the Bright Market so we took a walk around the area. The Ovens River was along the tracks. You could cross the bridge and admire the rapids. Great way to enjoy Bright.

Short, easy walk that follows the river. Lots to see, not difficult and can be done in under an hour.

Really enjoyable walk quiet by the river . Easy walk and covers both sides of the river. A must . Then have a nice lunch at Ginger Baker or Bright Brewry and then enjoy the Cherry Walk .

We had a beautiful walk around on a amazing day! Great views along the river. Bring some bathers if you game enough to swim in the cold but glorious river!

Lovely walk along the Ovens River, with stunning photo opportunities of the river & scenery. The whole walk took 90 minutes at a leisurely pace, with minor grading & steps.
