Come to Bowen and enjoy a self-guided Bowen Art (and nature) Walk. Begin your walk at the ferry dock as you land in Snug Cove. Follow a route that winds you through parkland, forest, and shoreline, and allows for viewing of impressive mosaics, murals, sculptures and other public art installations. End up at Artisan Square, the home of numerous galleries, studios, boutiques and other shops, including options for a full meal, light snack or delicious drinks.
