New sub localities of Bowen - Have your say on proposed new suburbs!
Greater Bowen is a significant area in the Whitsundays, covering an expanse of over 400,000 acres from Queens Beach to Abbot Point, and out to Roma Peak.
In 2014, during a public meeting in Bowen, a suggestion was made to the Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) to make the different localities in Bowen official. As a result, Whitsunday Regional Council and DNRM have been working on forming new boundaries and proposed suburb names over the last two years. Locality names have been taken from local knowledge and the areas taken and formulated from requirements under the Place Names Act 1994. Council is now pleased to present the draft suburbs to the community for comment.
