Award winning beaches and a vibrant community makes Bowen the perfect holiday spot for families, couples and singles alike. There is plenty to see and do in Bowen such as; strolling along the beautiful sandy beaches, taking in the magnificent murals displaying Bowen’s history, enjoying one of the many bush walks around the bays, wander up Flagstaff Hill to take in the views, visit the Interpretive centre and cafe, go out snorkelling, diving, fishing, windsurfing or sailing, and soak in the beautiful northern sunshine and blue waters.
Mullers Lagoon is a small park opposite Woolworths along our main street. This is a popular site for weddings and functions held by our local residents.
Mullers Lagoon is also a haven for native wildlife. During certain times of the year the lagoon attracts migrating many bird species, this enables the lagoon to become a bird watches paradise. Also these birds begin to lay eggs on the small island in the center of the lagoon.
On the eastern side of the Lagoon there is a fully equipped park area, with swings and slides for the kids and comfy chairs for mum and dad to look at this stunning feature. Toilets and Barbeques are also at Mullers Lagoon.
Bowen Waterpark Playground
The Bowen Water Park playground was officially opened on Saturday 8 September 2012.
The ‘free’ waterpark is located to the north of “datum rock” adjacent to the Herbert St intersection, Santa Barbara Parade, Bowen. The water park is a “zero depth” play area similar to the water park located at the strand in Townsville and is for all ages.
