Spring is in the air, and there’s no better time to plan a fun-filled weekend away with the girls. Whilst Victoria has many beautiful towns and tourist regions, the High Country town of Bright has everything you need and more for the ultimate relaxing weekend, from coffee and cocktails, to breweries, boutique shops and award-winning days spas. A character-filled village surrounded by stunning snow-capped mountains, beautiful Bright is just a little over three hours from Melbourne and is continually recognised as one of the very best destinations for a girl’s getaway. If your girl gang is heading here soon, here’s a few things to add to your to-do list.
There’s nothing like a massage, facial or full body treatment to really get you into holiday mode. The Alpine region is home to some fantastic hair and beauty salons, spas, and wellness centres that will leave you relaxed, rejuvenated and ready for the rest of the weekend. Bright Beauty Boutique, Bright Spa, Botanic Alps, and Cheeky Bits are just a few of our favourite local salons that offer a vast array of services including facials, waxing, pedicures, manicures, massage and hair & makeup services.
Lily Pily Day Spa & Bright Spa are the ultimate places to indulge in a luxurious spa treatment offering massage, body rituals, facial scrubs & body wraps & more. Bright Spa is a brand new Mediterranean inspired day spa opening early November and already offer mobile spa treatments at select holiday homes, a great option for groups that want to indulge in the comfort of their beautiful Bright Holiday Home. Lily Pily Day Spa is a short 30 minute drive, in the neighbouring town of Mount Beauty, not only a gorgeous day spa , they also offer delicious homemade food, and locally roasted coffee.
If you’re after something a little more remedial, Muscle Freedom in Porepunkah offers a range of remedial massage treatments, including deep-tissue massage, sports massage, trigger-point therapy and dry cupping & needling.
