“The best day started with a morning hike around Crippen Park followed by breakfast at a local restaurant and a visit to a few local galleries. Being surrounded by nature is the reason for my getaways to Bowen, as well as the friendly community and earthy architecture of everything on the island.”

Known as a haven for rest, relaxation and nature away from the city, Bowen has a surprisingly wide range of activities to enjoy. Outdoors there are nature hikes and walks, road and mountain biking, kayaking and paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, scuba diving, beachcombing, picnics, golf…even yoga on the pier during the summer months. Bowen also hosts many outdoor concerts and events.

Indoors you’ll find several art galleries, art classes, boutiques and a museum. Restaurants and cafes also feature outdoor dining patios. Live music at venues across the island. Yoga, dance, gyms, massage, bodywork and other wellness treatments. Community events happen throughout the year and many feature local foods, artists, musicians and performers.
