Weekender Is Coming To Bowen

The Channel 7 Weekender crew will be in Bowen and Collinsville next week filming for an episode previewing next month.
The presenter will be former professional cricketer Lee Carseldine who is known for his larrikin style sense of humour on the show.
The region has been featured on the show in the past and Lee presented a segment a few years ago when he walked to the lighthouse.
Manager of Bowen Tourism and Business, Leanne Abernethy said everyone was looking forward to hosting the crew and showcasing what Bowen and Collinsville has to offer.
“We are very passionate about our beaches, lookouts, bushwalks and country hospitality in Bowen and we believe Collinsville really is the heart of the Whitsundays outback,” she said.
Chair of Bowen Tourism and Business, Jenn Honnery said the organisation was proud to sponsor an entire 30-minute episode of the show.
“Publicity like this benefits the entire region and we are looking forward to hosting the crew and seeing the program when it goes to air, which is expected to be late July.
“Thank you to Channel 7 and the team at Bowen Tourism and Business for making this happen.”
Weekender is aired on Channel 7 each Sunday at 5.30pm.
