“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 and beachcombing, picnics, golf, even horseback riding and scuba diving. Bowen also hosts many outdoor concerts and events.

Indoors you’ll find several art galleries and a museum, restaurants and cafes, shopping, yoga, dance, gyms, spa and other wellness treatments. Community events compete for their audiences virtually every weekend.
