Postponed Porepunkah Bushfire Recovery Fly-in

18 - 19 April 2020

We are sad to advise that due to the current situation with the COVID-19 virus we are postponing the Bushfire Recovery Fly-in.  Whilst businesses in the region desperately need visitors to return following the bushfires we also have a responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone attending.  


The event was shaping up to be a big one with hundreds of attendees. We hope to reschedule the event later this year or early in 2021 and will publish information when a new date is confirmed.  Those who registered for the event will be refunded in full.

The Porepunkah Airfield community are rallying behind local businesses and we need your help. Join us on the 18th and 19th of April for a fun weekend at the Bushfire Recovery Fly-in.  We encourage you to fly to Porepunkah and then visit businesses in Bright and surrounds to provide your support. Stay a few nights, visit the vast array of cafe’s, restaurants and wineries and take home some culinary delights.

The Porepunkah Airfield is located in the beautiful Alpine Shire near Bright and at the base of Mt Buffalo. Bright and surrounds are famous for food, wine, natural beauty and outdoor sports. A town for all seasons Bright is a much loved tourist destination.

What's Happening: 

  • Welcome bacon & egg (sausage sizzle) at the airfield (Saturday morning)
