Bowen is halfway between Townsville and Mackay, and 1,130 kilometres (700 mi) by road from Brisbane.Bowen sits on a square peninsula, with the Coral Sea to the north, east, and south. To the south-east is Port Denison and Edgecumbe Bay. On the western side, where the peninsula connects with the mainland, the Don River's alluvial plain provides fertile soil that supports a prosperous farming industry.Merinda is a hinterland town 10.3 kilometres (6.4 mi) west of the town of Bowen.The Bruce Highway enters the locality from the east, approaches but does not enter the town of Bowen itself, but then turns west to pass through Merinda before exiting the locality to the north-west. The North Coast railway line follows a similar route, approaching the district from the south and served by the Bowen railway station located to the west of the town. After exiting the station, the line turns northwest over the Don river to its next major stop at Home Hill. At Merinda railway station, there is the junction with the Collinsville-Newlands railway line servicing the Bowen basin Coalfields. The Collinsville-Newlands line extends to the coal-handling port at Abbot Point, also within the locality of Bowen.

Very good, excellent range of products for multiple purposes, garden edging to fencing to decking, their product usage is only limited by imagination. Chances are they will have something that you'll use in your next building project.
