Welcome to Bowen

Situated at the top of the Whitsundays, Bowen offers visitors a veritable paradise with eight beautiful beaches to enjoy and explore, plus a multitude of outdoor sports, including fishing, standup paddle boarding, golf & tennis. Our beautiful walks and trails can lead you to outstanding views of the town and bays.

Bowen has a very rich and interesting history; our town is the oldest town in North Queensland, first established in 1861, several years ahead of Townsville (1866) and Mackay (1869). It is also known as the birthplace of the Kensington Pride mango (fondly referred to as the ‘Bowen Special’).

Bowen is very well known for its diverse industries: including fishing and agriculture. Farmers grow a variety of fruit and vegetables throughout the year- they call Bowen the salad bowl of Australia for a reason, our locally caught fish are exported all over the globe.

I know just the place…

TEQ recently launched their latest marketing campaign which features the theme ‘I know just the place’.
The campaign focuses on delivering Queensland’s world-class and unexpected experiences through the voice of locals – ‘If we asked you for something new and exciting to do in Queensland, would you know just the place? We’re talking about a spot that took your breath away, gave you goosebumps on your goosebumps or filled your friends with food envy.

The campaign is an excellent opportunity to share via social media imagery and experiences in Bowen and the rest of the Whitsundays.
Do you know just the place?  We want to discover your favourite places in Queensland.  Head to queensland.com/yourplace to share your photos and videos with us.  You can also get involved via social media by tagging #thisisqueensland on Twitter and Instagram.
