Bowen is the top of the Whitsundays, a jewel in the Whitsunday crown with untouched beaches, beautiful bays and a perfect tropical climate. Bowen is one of the undiscovered treats of Queensland and an ideal destination for those seeking a laidback beach holiday.

Bowen is situated in the northern region of the Whitsundays on the shores of Edgecumbe Bay, just 40 minutes' drive north from Airlie Beach. It's a picturesque seaside town that offers a beachcomber's paradise with eight award-winning, palm-fringed beaches to explore. Plus there's the reef, beach and estuary fishing. With a daily average of eight hours of sunshine all through the year, it can also lay claim to having Australia's best climate.

The most popular beaches are Horseshoe Bay and Queens Beach. Visitors are well provided for at most beaches in the Bowen area, with facilities including barbecues, picnic tables, children's playgrounds and neatly maintained parkland areas. The Bowen foreshore has recently been redeveloped with fun family activity in mind and boasts a sound shell for outdoor events.

With some of the best fringing reefs of the Queensland coast lying just a few metres offshore, the area attracts snorkellers and divers keen to explore the coral gardens.
