Autumn, Must Do List 

Every Autumn I think we must go back to Bright in NE Victoria . We have had many great holidays over the past 40 years enjoying the autumn experiences of this area.

We took 4 days this week , booked into a B&B and headed south with a detour  via Murrumburra in NSW ,to search a little family history . My great great grandmother  Margaret Carnell is buried in this town , she was 98years old when she died and had three husbands and 10 children in her life time , what an achievement ,it is said she still rode a horse into her 90’s . 

I only found this grave after a bit of research and the inscription was hard to read , but with a sheet of white paper and a pencil  etched across the headstone her name was revealed , I was excited . 

Next stop was Bright , we stayed a little out of town in this fantastic converted Tobacco Kiln , it had the most amazing views across the vineyards to Mt Buffalo and it was situated next to the Murray Valley Rail trail , which we were here to ride . Two days were spent riding and  we covered over 60 Kms . Autumn was on full show.

We were both a little saddle sore by the end of the second day , but enjoyed every minute of this great trail . 

Today is a rest day , maybe travel to a few winery’s and test a few Prosecco’s , have a lunch out .

Below a couple of pic of Mt Buffalo NP the summit was clouded in but it was  still a picture 

This is a lovely area to stay !

  1. Beautiful part of the world, particularly in autumn. Loved the video and the sound effects of you riding through all those fallen leaves.
