Evening and dinner
• 3pm Mount Buffalo Sunset. Meet at The Alpine Hotel, Bright at 3pm to catch the bus to Mount Buffalo for sunset. There will be two photo locations to choose from on Buffalo. One will be a hike, up to 3km, climbing stairs to a viewing location above the Lake Catani. There is limited room to take photos once at the final location for this hike so it will be those that will put their name down first. The second choice is less walking but equally beautiful.
Sturdy shoes and torches are essential as we will be walking on uneven ground in the dark to the sunset location – up to 3km. BYO water and snacks as there is no food and beverage facilities open on the mountain at that time.
• 7pm Dinner at The Buffalo Motel and High Country Retreat; A little surprise location in Porepunkah with a stunning outlook of the Ovens River and Mount Buffalo. A cocktail style dinner that allows photography conversations (and other topics) with fellow instameeters Dinner and arrival drink included in the price (further drinks can be purchased at own expense).


Sunday 28 April
Morning
• 6.20am Secret Sunrise Location, high above Bright with views down onto the colours of township. To be surrounded by the ever evolving pine plantations means we get to find new and exciting locations above Bright. Looking forward to showing off our new favourite vistas.

Lunch
• 12pm Lunch at Café Fez, Myrtleford, this is not a free event, but an open invitation to join us for lunch, draw a prize winner and farewells till the Winter #Bright19Instameet.
