From a  weekend away, to weddings, conferences, and group bookings in Bright

In 2011, my husband and I decided we wanted to go into business for ourselves, to try something new, a new adventure and so the journey began...we bought the High Country Motor Inn in Bright. What first appealled to us about this particular motel apart from its country rustric charm, was the beautiful grassed area and amazing gardens sourounding the motel, the thought of stepping out of your motel room to have breakfast on the lawn in the sunshine, family bbq's, reading a book by the pool and lots of space for the kiddies to run around. Having two young children ourselves we knew the importance of being able to take a vacation without the kids climbing the walls of the confined space of a motel room. 

Bright the township itself is so refreshing.  To live in a place that offers so much to do all seasons around. The beautiful back drop of the mountains is to die for.

You have summer with the  warm weather lazing by the pool and the scenic walks along the river. 100 metres to the back of our motel is the popular and breathtaking cannyon walk. You can also walk along the creek directly from our motel to the centre of town and for those ladies and gents that like a beer of an evening, the walk into town takes you right to the back of the Bright Brewery, sample o few of the ales Bright has to offer. Bright is buzzing at this time of year with the parks, markets and creeks running through the centre of town. Cannot forget to mention the rail trail for the bike ridining enthusiasts. Great for riding with kids or even for the more serious of bike riders without the worry of trafic on the road. My husband would probably be upset if I didnt mention the Bright Golf Course. He has himself become quite a regular and not only are the grounds kept in prestine condition, the view at the course surrounded with moutains and bushland is quite the sight.

Autumn well Bright is famous for its Autumn season, the changing of the leaves and the festivals, people come from all over to see the rich reds, orange, yellow and brown fluttering from the trees to the ground.

Winter and of course the snow. What an adventure to experience the snow. white and crystal and absoloutley breathtaking. A little cold for the fingers but a must do!  Nothing a pair of warm winter gloves wont fix and after a day on the slopes, nothing better than returning to the High Country Motor Inn with a drink from Ned's bar and warm the toes by the large open fire place.

Spring well spring in Bright again imbraces tourists with its open gardens and amazing colour of new flowers blooming and again a great time for all of the scenic walks bright has to offer.

The people, not only were we blessed with great staff, the people in the township of Bright and the lovley guests that stay have all been amazing. We are truley blessed to live and work in such an amazing part of Australia.

We would like to welcome all travellers to come and stay with us here at the High Country Motor Inn.  Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Kind Regards,

Nick and Alanna Howden.
