A look back.....and forward

February 3, 2016


We are almost at the end of what a lot of locals would consider the perfect Summer.  Beautiful hot days but also just enough rain to keep everything green and lush. 

The general consensus is that this was one of the busiest Summers in a long time. Certainly this was the case for Abalina Cottages .




Our gorgeous town enjoyed a lot of changes last year with both Bright, Porepunkah and Wandiligong pubs all changing hands.

Bright also has two new bike shops , 'Bright Electric Bikes' (sales and hire) and 'ATC Cycles' joining long time favorite 'Cyclepath'. We have a new clothing and homeware shop 'Star Road Trader' and 'The Bright Table' is a beautiful new tablewear store

'Winding Road Design Studio' has opened up opposite the Bright Brewery. It has stunning art work and some of you might recognise Alicia Marshall as the artist  behind our beautiful pieces in abailina 2-on- rotary.

We also have a new book shops along with 2 new cafes.


Bright has a lot of events coming up this year with a few coming up soon- 


12th-14th February – Adventure Travel Film Festival
