Bowen is the northern jewel in The Whitsundays crown, located on the shores of Edgecumbe Bay, 45 minutes north of Airlie Beach and 2.5 hours south of Townsville. This picturesque seaside town is a relaxed beachcomber’s paradise with award-winning, palm-fringed beaches, beautiful bays, and a warm tropical climate. Largely undiscovered, Bowen offers a trail runners paradise. The scenery provides stunning beaches and rocky headlands. Why we love it: Rocky and technical trail sections with steep climbs and fast descents and some fun coasteering in the longer distances.

Why not spend a weekend in this beautiful little place and join the Parkrun on Saturday morning, take a SUP or kayak and explore the pristine beaches or just relax with a book by the ocean and save your energy for race day. There are plenty of accommodation options to suit all budgets. For more information on Bowen, visit the Tourism Bowen website.
