1. Flagstaff Hill

Pick your sunset buddy because this is one wow of a sunset spot! Elevated 360-degree views stretch from the top of Flagstaff Hill, encompassing the wetlands, expanse of windswept King's Beach, offshore islands and rich farming lands inland of Bowen. Just perfect for relaxed romance โ€“ grab that takeaway and front row seats for a view made for love. As the sun settles over distant Roma Peak and the Clarke range watch the golden light settle upon Port Denison and Bowen Marina. As the stars start their dance across the sky turn around to catch gorgeous pastel hues as night descends over the Whitsunday waters and Gloucester Island. BLISS.
