Helpful staff will provide you with all the information you need to make the most of your stay or stopover in Bowen.
Bowen is a proud city. Renowned for the famous Bowen Mango, it is an agricultural and tourism hub with its own microclimate. The folk at Bowen will point out to you that the district grows about 80% of all Australia's tomatoes.

And of course you just have to mention Baz Luhrmann and his Australia movie and they will go on and on about the important part the city played in one of the scenes.

But don't let that put you off. Bowen is a friendly place with a heart as warm as the tropical summer sun. Bring your fishing line and camera.
