Great location, the beach front van sites are excellent, amenities are well kept and in the need of bit of modernising. Will certainly stay there when I am calling through again. No shops directly nearby but a 5 minute drive away.

We stayed on a beachfront slab site, had amazing uninterrupted water views. The park itself & amenities are impeccably clean. Beautiful pool also. We booked 4 nights here & unfortunately due to the rainy weather & it being stinger season, we all became extremely bored. Apart from the beautiful beaches, Bowen doesn’t have a lot else to offer. Next time we’ll stay at Airlie Beach & drive around for the day to swim in the beach & bays.

We booked a 2 bedroom cabin for 3 nights at the NRMA Bowen Beachfront holiday park due to the great reviews. It is a good location and the cabin is quite nice however the road the two bedroom cabins are on is ridiculously loud. It’s right on a corner so you get all the cars accelerating. We have a 15 month old daughter who needs day naps and during the day it was impossible for her to sleep and at night multiple wake ups due to very noisy cars. Reading reviews there’s no mention of the road noise so just wanting to make people aware before booking.

We recently stayed in a beachfront villa. They are a bit dated and could do with an update but it was comfortable enough and we loved the spa. Although I couldn't put my finger on anything actually dirty in the cabin it felt a bit grotty due to peeling paint in some spots etc.

Booked beachside site 12 weeks in advance for 4 night stay and advised we had a tent. Arrived 24/11/20 at 5.30pm and was advised that we were not permitted to put tent in that site. No other suitable sites, and due to late hour took a cabin for the night which cost us the same price as the 4 nights tent site. Spoke to new manager who did not offer a solution but stated that NRMA policy was not to have tents in that location. Couldn't find anything in their policies regarding tent locations. Spent the last 5 weeks travelling, including on Cape York without wind issues with our Oztent.Now have to book elsewhere for the next 3 nights. We have been camping with the big van parks and not experienced this before. I do not recommend NRMA Bowen if you have a tent.

Dear rossmE3030PJ Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback in relation to your recent stay, we are disappointed that we were not able to accommodate your full booking. We will review our website online booking pages and address if required. Unfortunately, due to the high wind conditions we have here in Bowen and for the safety for our guest we feel that this area would not be comfortable for a tent set up. We do have plenty of other sites available within our park that would be more suited. Once again, we regret that we have not been able to meet your expectation in find another site suitable for your stay, and thank you again for your feedback. Team Bowen!
