Breathtakingly Beautiful Bright

in Pinmapple10 months ago (edited)

As the chill of winter sets in, it's easy to find myself longing for warmer days. Recently, as Melbourne shivered under a cold snap, I found myself delving into my memories of a particularly picturesque town that I visited during a colorful autumn. Join me on this trip down memory lane to explore Bright- another beautiful and popular place in Victoria.

Located just four hours northeast of Melbourne, Bright is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and breathtaking scenery. I took a-day bus trip from the Western Suburb of Melbourne to Bright. It was a bit cloudy; however, it was worth getting up early for the sights.

I came on the trip with other Vietnamese tourists and we departed at 6am. After the first 2-hour driving, the tour guide dropped us at a town called Glenrowan (approximately 2 hours from Melbourne) and told us about one of the most infamous and polarizing figures in Australian history-Ned Kelly.

It was a bit early so museum was yet to open. Walking around the town, I felt Ned Kelly's presence throughout this small town from coffee shop, museum to supermarket with his name and pictures on the wall, and had a glimpse into the life and times of one of Australia's most notorious figures.

Ned Kelly was born in Victoria and his life was marked by crime, violence, and rebellion against authority. He clashed frequently with the police over petty offenses such as theft and assault. However, it wasn't until he became embroiled in a series of more serious crimes that he became infamous throughout the country and ended his life in jail.

Ned's story is one that blurs the lines between heroism and villainy, often depending on one's perspective. To some, he was a symbol of resistance against oppression and injustice; to others, he was nothing more than a common criminal.

After a brief stopover in Glenrowan, our journey continued towards Bright. It was the weekend and tourists were flocking to this charming town.

The driver stopped at some places for us to take pictures before reaching the town. With its vibrant foliage showcasing autumn colors, it was no wonder visitors were eager to experience all that Bright had to offer.

Everyone around me seemed thrilled to capture the beauty of the season through their cameras. But for me, I couldn't help feeling a bit drained from the long karaoke session that my fellow Vietnamese tourists had indulged in during our journey to this picturesque location, 😅(I'm not a karaoke fan)

As I walked around, I couldn't resist being drawn in by the stunning display of oranges, yellows, and reds. Well, I can imagine how breathtakingly beautiful this town would look when bathed in sunlight.

Arriving the town center, I had 2 hours exploring this charming area before continuing on with my journey. I strolled down the main street, taking in the sights and sounds around me, however, I noticed that many of the shops appeared to be closed.

While wandering through the streets, a local suggested trying the best pies in town at Gumtree Pies. There were crowds of both locals and tourists eagerly waiting to order their savory treats. The pies were pretty good. The flavors were rich and complex and each ingredient tasted fresh and homemade. Highly recommended it 😉

Very tranquil and beautiful park closes to town. This picturesque destination offers adventure seekers and nature lovers an abundance of opportunities to immerse in nature's beauty and participate outdoor activities. However, my visit to Bright was unfortunately limited, leaving me longing for more exploration and discovery. I will definitely come back next time 🙂

I loved this view. The river running through its center added to its charm and vibrancy. It was once the place for people to search for gold as was most of country Victoria. Some people were fishing and enjoying the water. 🤗

Like many popular tourist destinations, Bright got quite crowded, especially autumn season. I'm thinking of returning to this beautiful destination as it has so much more to offer 😇


Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my day trip to this picturesque destination. Be sure to check out Bright if you have an opportunity

Bright is spectacular. I love the vibrant colors of the leaves. How I wish I could witness a view like this in my own naked eyes!

Yes, its better by naked eyes 😊 worth the trip visit this beautiful destination :)

What a great place to wander around while at the same time enjoying the vibrant colorful trees. You must have enjoyed it a lot since you wanted to go back. Enjoy and have fun 😍🤩

Yes I could visit time and time again. The place is so pretty 🥰

Bright is indeed bright! 😅
Autumn there is so yellow! I like autumn colors the most.
Ned Kelly in that town sure gives me some eerie vibes. The mask he wore makes me think of the movie Friday the 13th 🥲

Same, I love the autumn 🍁the most but not really a fan of that horror movie 😂. His mask was made from steel. It was a good idea to protect him a lot but too heavy that he could be able run fast :)

Thanks for stopping by 😊

So the Vietnamese like karaoke too! Hehe I guess you either love it or you don't.

Hearing about cold snap in Australia made me chuckle. Like cold seriously come to the UK in winter. But I know what you mean, Melbourne I have been told is quite seasonal and has British type weather.

Great tour and I always thought of Ned Kelly being a Robin Hood type of character, rob from the rich to give to the poor etc.

Give the pup a cuddle, miss seeing her on your posts.

Yes he was the pioneer much like your Robin Hood :) Its cold that why many Poms here. Its 4 seasons in Melbourne except no snow in town, only in the hill.

Jetti sent the well. She doing well and has a tough life haha.

Hive Power Up Day - July 1st 2023

My previous @v4vapp proposal has expired. I have a new one which is running but unfunded right now. I'm still running @v4vapp and all my other services.

I've just updated v4v.app and I'm getting ready for some exciting new features after the next hard fork.

Please consider asking your friends to vote for prop #265 or consider unvoting the return vote.

For understandable reasons in the current crypto climate it is harder to get funded by the DHF, I accept this so I'm asking a wider audience for help again. I'll also add that I power up Hive every day and usually power up larger amounts on 1st of the Month. I'm on Hive for ideological reasons much more than for only economic benefit.

Additionally you can also help with a vote for Brianoflondon's Witness using KeyChain or HiveSigner

If you have used v4v.app I'd really like to hear your feedback, and if you haven't I'd be happy to hear why or whether there are other things you want it to do.

Congratulations @trangbaby! You received a personal badge!

You powered-up at least 100 HP on Hive Power Up Day! This entitles you to a level 3 badge
