Superb Alps Panoramas from Bright

These pix were taken on September 10, 2011.

They show the superb panoramic views to the Victorian Alps and over the nearby valleys from the Lookouts at Clearspot and Mystic Mountain, which overlook the town of Bright, 375 km NE of Melbourne.

The signed unsealed roads to the Lookouts are logging tracks which pass through extensive pine plantations.

Clearspot is at 1004 m asl - there are two main access roads - one from Coronation Drive and up Huggins Rd to a turnoff near Huggins Lookout. The other is ftroma turnoff up Bakers Gully Rd.

Mystic Mountain is 708 m asl, and we reached this peak from Wandiligong Rd, then up Mystic Lane.

At the summit there is the Hang Gliding launch ramp.

Sections of these access roads are stony and steep, and fare is needed. AWD/4WD is strongly recommended!

Enterprising and energetic souls hike, mountain-bike, or trail-bike from Bright to these peaks, an increase of altitude of some 800 m. We drove!

The Waterwheel pictures were taken in Wandiligong, in a property on White Star Rd. The age of the wheel is unknown.

See all of the Photos of our visit!
