The 10-metre high Big Mango represents the delicious fruit which carries the name sake of the town "Bowen Mango". Situated on the A1 Bruce Highway with sweeping views of the Whitsunday coast it’s the perfect pull over during the epic East Coast Australian road trip.

The Big Mango is located at the Bowen Visitor Information Centre, 4 kilometres south of Bowen on the Bruce Highway. Stop by the top of the Whitsundays to get your photo with the Big Mango! While you're there - drop into the Information Centre and try some delicious local mango sorbet. Located in the Big Mango grounds you will find public artwork displays from local sculptural artists. There is ample parking space for all size vehicles, the Big Mango is pet friendly and includes a off-lead dog park area.
