Riverbend Homestead is your perfect Bright Holiday Accommodation

It’s a traditional Australian farm homestead situated in the middle of a working farm nestled in the upper Ovens Valley, 5 minutes from Bright.

Riverbend Homestead very close to Bright is the ideal house for a family or two families to rent as it has accommodation for 12 people including adults and children. There is heaps of room to unwind and relax and so much for the children to do. With commanding views and a warm fireplace, it is the perfect family or group destination to reset your busy lives.

You can relax on the balcony and watch your children feed the chickens and pat the sheep. As a family you can have fun in the garage that doubles as a games room. With pin pong and basic toys and a couple of bikes for use on the farm, your children will find lots to keep them happy and you can unwind while keeping an eye on them.

After a day of exploring the local area you, your family and friends can enjoy time in the spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area and have dinner on the large deck outside while enjoying the views of Mt Feathertop in the distance. The fresh alpine air and views of the snow-covered mountains in winter is totally breathtaking.
