The first dam in Bright was built in 1892 and the second in 1916 to provide a permanent supply of water to the town,
railway station and trains. The reservoirs no longer provide water to Bright but are now home to platypus, tortoises, fish,
frogs and yabbies.
They are located in the Baker's Gully Reserve, reached by a foot track from
Bakers Gully Rd, about 2 km south of thr town.
