Bowen's Grays Bay


Phone: 4786 4222


One of the most picturesque bays in Queensland is Gray’s Bay - one of the few places on the East Coast where you can watch the sun set over the ocean. It really is a treat, especially when the stand up paddleboarders are silhouetted against the darkening sky. When the tide is in, the water laps less than a metre from the road, and with its azure water, white sand and rocky outcrops, it is truly spectacular. There’s ample parking, a boat ramp providing easy access to offshore mackerel fishing, free barbecues and a playground situated under big shady trees. Find your perfect spot to sit and enjoy, or bring your SUP, kayak or canoe for coastal adventuring.
