Apex Lookout - Bright




Apex Lookout overlooks the township of Bright, 350 km NE of Melbourne.

It is reached by ascending the Mt Porepunkah Rd, for about 2 km, starting at Bright township, where there is a small car park at the junction of Quins Gap Rd.

The signed 3 km (return) Lookout Walking Track starts further up, and winds its way through forest, with beautiful views to the Mt Buffalo Massif.

At the top, there are two view points - the actual Lookout, and the Bright Lookout nearby along a short track.

The views are magnificent, across Bright township, and to the mountains of the High Country, with Mts Feathertop and Hotham prominent.

There is a seat at the Lookout!

At the Lookout, there are communications towers, carrying TV, VHF radio, amateur radio repeater transmitters, and other services.

It is possible to drive from the Quins Gap Rd carpark to the Lookout up the maintenance track, but this is extremely steep and not suitable for conventional cars.

If time and energy permit, the trip can be undertaken entirely on foot, starting at Bright township and following the same route as for the drive, with a diversion around the pine plantations, which emerges at the Quin's Gap carpark.

Our summit hike was on March 9, 2009.
