Explore Bowen & the Whitsundays here...

Bowen and the Whitsundays play host to a variety of fun-filled events throughout the year, from family-friendly festivals to sporting & music events. Being surrounded by beautiful natural coastline, Bowen's events throughout the year showcase our pristine waters and connection with the sea.

Hilights include the Bowen Offsfhore Superboats Festival in April 2018; the Bowen Family Fishing Classic in September and the Annual 'Walk to the Lighthouse' on August 11. The lowest tides of the year offer an unique opportunity for visitors and locals to visit North Head Island Lighthouse and discover our cultural history and natural wonders.

Winter sees numerous events making the most of the balmy weather as the whales come to play offshore - June plays host to both the Bowen Show and the Bowen River Rodeo & Campdraft. 

Throughout the year weekly beachside markets are held on Sunday mornings at Hansen Park on Horseshoe Bay Road. Yoga, parkrun and stand-up paddle boarding is on offer year round, as well as frequent sporting competitions and concerts. Bowen's Turf Club features several race meets from April to October.

A favourite for day-trippers, holidayers and locals is a visit to the historic Bowen Summergarden Theatre showing current releases Thursday - Sunday.
