Local Events

Bowen does not have an enormous amount of major events through the year although it is home to the locally famous markets that are held in Hansen Park adjacent to CCHP. These take place every month.

Airlie Beach Music Festival


Without doubt the biggest annual event for the Whitsundays is the Airlie Beach Music Festival. Bowen is probably the best place as a base for this event – if you do not want to be overcome by the crowds and partying that is. CCHP guests can use the serenity of the Park as a home base and then travel to the various venues for the music acts of their choice.

  • 74 bands in 18 venues
  • over 3.5 days – 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th November 2015

Airlie Beach Music Festival is set to be the location of one of the best music festivals in Queensland. With 74 Bands and the 74 islands to enjoy it is set to get Airlie Beach rocking like it has never rocked before.
