3. Murals
Check out the famous 22 murals around town including one by Ken Done. Get directions from the info centre.
4. Stay longer
Bowen is far from the bustle and so relaxing you might want more of the same the next day, so stay over in town or at the beaches. There’s a local cinema and plenty of yummy food for dinner.
