Bowen has it all. The beautiful beaches, the big mango, the offshore biters, the year long summer sunshine and even Hollywood movie stars singing the north Queensland town’s praises. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a holiday in north Queensland’s little gem, Coral Coast Beachfront Holiday Park is the place to stay.
Located on the Whitsunday coast, Bowen’s attraction is not only the breathtaking natural beauty but the town’s unique small town simplicity. Bowen is perfect for a quiet, relaxing get away conveniently, situated just 160kms north of Mackay and 200kms south of Townsville.
Coral Coast Beachfront Holiday Park is the place to stay in Bowen. The park has a range of Villas, Powered Caravan, campervan sites or tent sites and is close to all Bowen has to offer.
The park has a number of Beachfront Villas available facing the ocean at Queen’s bay. These villa’s boast a 3.5 star rating, and can sleep up to 5 people. They are fully equipped with a queen size bed, 2 person spa and shower, kitchen, fridge, freezer, air conditioning, and a shady patio to relax on.
Also available are the Family Villas that sleep 6 people. The 4 star Family Villas have all the facilities of the Beachfront Villas in addition to 2 bedrooms, a separate lounge room with double sofa bed, and a patio with your own private BBQ.
The park also has 57 sites for caravans, campervans and tents. The sites are powered and range slightly in price for beachfront views.
Coral Coast Beachfront Holiday Park is only a 5 minute drive from the local post office and business centre of Bowen. Centre Point Plaza is also located near the park.
Bowen and the surrounding region has something to offer everyone. The township is set in and around the Whitsunday waterways, abundant in beaches and estuaries. A favourite among anglers and tourists alike, is the white sandy beaches and azure waters of Horseshoe Bay. The bay’s large granite outcrops provide a haven for many species of fish and snorkelling in the area is ideal.
For the offshore angler, there is also plenty of options to choose from. The winter months bring schools of mackerel and tuna off the mouth of the Don River, providing ample trolling action. The reefs closer to the Bowen foreshore and around the area’s many bays and Middle island can also produce a variety of reef fish.
If Bowen’s plentiful marine life does not appeal to your senses there other activities on offer in the area. Airlie beach is only a short 40 minute drive south, and has a number of shops, restaurants, bars and adrenaline activities such as jet skiing.
For the sports enthusiast, Bowen has a golf course, bowls and squash courts all located in close vicinity to Coral Coast park. There are also local parklands with BBQ facilities and well maintained bush walking tracks where you can enjoy the native Australian bushland.
Bowen also has it’s own unique features. These include the Big Mango, a tribute to the town’s fruitful namesake, the Bowen Mango. There is also the Bowen Historical Museum, featuring history about the Aboriginal inhabitants and early settlers of the area. The nearby mining town of Collinsville is also worth a visit. This historic mining offers a relaxed lifestyle with much to keep visitors happy. Fill your day with a walk around the town centre looking at the murals, mining museum and having lunch at a heritage listed hotel.
