Sophie Walters

When did you come to Bowen?

I have been coming to Bowen ever since I was a baby but I moved here 10 years ago.


How did you come to be here?

My grandparents have lived on Bowen for I think about 50 years.


Where on Bowen do you live?

I live in Bluewater.


Fill the ferry lineup gap or don’t fill the gap?

I feel like you should fill the gap. 


What’s your favourite Bowen fact or story?

Probably just the amount of community support – like if one person gets hurt, or if you get hurt [people will step up.] I broke my foot a couple years back and I got a ride to school every single day from a different person and some of the people I had never met before, but we got to know each other.


What’s something Bowen Islanders have in common?

Very little patience for tourists.


What’s your favourite COVID-19 balm or activity?

Tell Your Friends coffee mornings.
