Birds of Bowen, Queensland

Now if you saw a bird or watched a bird go on it's side then upside down as in feet in the air and laying on it's back, you might think, Oh it died!  Well that's exactly what we thought when having a picnic lunch by the water near the first caravan park we stayed in in Bowen and saw this bird.
The photos were taken with my phone so not the best quality.





The bird in question - sorry that the image is not sharp but it's the phone.






The above bird don't know it's name either, there is a also a blue one.
Below is our seagull.

Flagstaff Hill, Bowen

Good views from Flagstaff Hill in Bowen. Views from Rose Bay, along the expanse of Kings Beach, across to the lighthouse on North Head Island, Stony Island, Gloucester Island back to the Marina, and across town, you will feel like you're on top of the world. Binoculars and a look-out tower ensure the best view in the Whitsundays.
A few photos from up on Flagstaff Hill.

Black and White in Bowen, Queensland.

First evening in Bowen in Queensland we headed to a Marina, it was a lovely still evening so we sat on a seat and watch the sun go down.

Have a few photos in colour and black and white - a vast difference.

To Bowen, Queensland.


In Winter 2017 we headed to Bowen a long way from home.  The winter weather was warmer than usual so we decided to stay for a few weeks and not go further north because we had come far enough north for warm weather having been to Townsville the year before.

Bowen is known for the wind but we didn't encounter much at all.
Most women were wearing shorts and some wore sundresses/frocks the men wore shorts and of course there are our 'thongs', those things you wear on your feet!

 We went up on the lookout only to discover one couldn't see that much for the trees, however, we did see another caravan park that looked good not far from a beach so we headed down and booked for a week there.
