Beaches at Bowen, Queensland

More beaches at Bowen in Queensland.
There is a resort to the left of the first palm, but not a private beach however it seems as if one is trespassing because the ground floor doors open up onto the grassed area.




We went for a paddle in the water here at another beach.  A resort at the same beach below.




Another beach at Bowen called Queens Bay and the view to part of the Whitsunday Islands

    1. Often we stay in places as you describe and it is nice.
      Some caravan parks and free parks do exactly as you say. The best real estate.

  11. Those first three photos look as if they are of Gray's Bay...where Whitsunday Sands Resort is...the one I managed briefly back in the 90s.

    1. The first photo I'm not sure what that beach is called, but it's a different beach to the 2 photos below it.
      Certainly you have been to some wonderful beach places - good on you.

    2. That first pic looks like it could be Murrays Bay...which is further along a road taken off to the right as you head towards Grays Bay and a little further on to Horseshoe Bay.

    3. You would know better than I what the bays are called, there are many of them.

  12. There was a notorious case here where a beachfront property owner made the public beach seem like a private space and so deterred many using the beach.

    1. Oh gosh, have an idea I recall something about that ages ago. Can imagine it would make people uncomfortable if visiting the beach, they wouldn't know if it was permitted to be used or not. I don't know of any 'privately' owned beaches in Australia.
