Walk to the Lighthouse

Walk to the Lighthouse

Date: 11 August

Rate:
The annual community Walk to the Lighthouse celebrates the rich history of Bowen as the oldest town in the North, the town's connection to a maritime past and the rich sea life that calls Port Dension and Edgecumbe Bay home. Upon departing the mainland, Lighthouse walkers follow an exposed sand spit in a curving path towards the North Head Island. If you're a first-time walker beware! Your feet will get a little wet and they suggest wearing reef boots or old sneakers! As you make your way to the half-way point - keeps your eyes down and you'll get a surprise! Very quickly you'll notice many giant red starfish dotting the sandy shallows! Keep an eye out for sea cucumbers and feather stars. Every now and again have a glance out into the deeper water - chances are you'll spot a green sea turtle checking you out. When you reach the North Head Island it is a short climb to the peak and the Lighthouse. You can look back towards Bowen and the hinterland framing the view - or turn your gaze South East and towards the magnificent Gloucester Island.
