Located in the beautiful Whitsunday Region, Bowen is half way between Townsville and Mackay. Bowen has a diverse and prosperous economy primarily based on agriculture, fishing, tourism, and coal mining. It has an unusually dry climate for a tropical location but its fertile alluvial soil is ideal for growing a wide variety of crops, including tomatoes, rockmelons, and capsicums. In addition to cropping, a lot of the Bowen area is used to run beef cattle.
