    The Big Mango Bowen

    July 2, 1991 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    After spending a terrific holiday in the Whitsunday, it was time to go back to Mackay.

    After some negotiation with my wife I convinced her to drive the extra 50 minutes north to Bowen before returning to Mackay (overall a 3 hour trip).

    Having the Big Banana X 2, the Big Pinneapple, Big Orange, Big Mandarin and Big Avocado the Big Mango was a nice addition to Big Fruits collection.

    The Big Mango is located outside Bowen's information centre 4km before town and it is so big that can't be missed. Unfortunately we arrived too early so the place was closed and we didn't get to try the mango sorbets, apparently a must while in the area. We were also running out of time so we didn't have time to explore town, a pity, we'll leave to the next holiday.

    The Big Mango had recently being re-painted so it looked really new and rejuvenated, big thumbs up for the people of Bowen.

    Time of visit : April 2013
