Bowen, a quiet beach town off the highway with a surprise for passers by who just pull in for fuel or a quick lunch stop. Many a traveler is caught out wanting to stay in Bowen because of the beautiful quiet beaches and laid back friendly lifestyle of the locals. Book in for the night and end up staying for a week is the story for many passers by. Explore the Beaches and walking tracks all day. Snorkel straight of the beach in several of the bays. Fishing off shore a must do. Kite surf or sail when the wind suits. Visit the historic movie theatre and have a chat to Ben. The Big Mango and kid bro The Little Mango are a perfect photo opp. The water park for the little ones to cool off while the mums and dads sit and enjoy the ocean breeze. The local fish co-ops where you can grab some fresh seafood straight off a local trawler. Stroll around the main street and check out the buildings and murals full of history and stories. Do all or none of this. Just sit back and enjoy the view :)
