Bowen & The Whitsundays

Gladstone, the Capricorn and Whitsunday Coasts are serviced daily by the Tilt Train and Spirit of Queensland train from Brisbane and coastal regions between Townsville and Brisbane. Both regions are accessed by road via Bruce Highway which passes north from Brisbane through the Sunshine Coast, Fraser Coast and South Burnett regions. The Whitsundays, which are centrally located within the Tropical Coast, are around 1,100km north of Brisbane (15 hours drive by road). Rockhampton is 616km north of Brisbane. Both Rockhampton and Gladstone are located on the main North Coast Railway between Brisbane and Cairns. By road the Coral Coast is accessed via the Bruce Hwy from the North & South, and the Capricorn Hwy from the West.

The climate is subtropical. From November to March humidity is generally high, but sea breezes bring relief along the coast. Winter is mild and sunny with cool nights (July and August). The best time to visit is from September to November. Tropical storms can occur from November to April (mostly during January to March).
