Bowen – Flagstaff Hill Lookout

Landmarks and Buildings

Flagstaff Hill offers some of the best coastal views you will ever see with a 360-degree panorama of the whole Bowen region – and you won’t have to walk up a hill!

The views encompass the Whitsunday Islands of Gloucester, Middle, Stone, Holbourne and close to shore, North Head Island and it’s historic lighthouse.

The expanse of Kings Beach is best viewed from the top, stretching to Rose Bay and the pendulous boulder of Mother Beddock Lookout on Cape Edgecumbe. The township of Bowen, rich harbour, marina and jetty lie to the inland, while to the west the Whitsunday hinterland comes alive at sunset with golden hues.

The lookout is an easy short drive from the main business centre via Peter and has ample parking, making it highly accessible for all visitors.

Use the binoculars for AUD2 to see even more, from the Whitsundays hinterland and mountains, to Abbot Point and Bowen’s rich farming land, and northern Whitsunday islands. During winter this is an ideal land-based whale watching location.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
