Photos: Bowen plunges into the new year

It was a brrr-ave way to kick off 2023

While many people were busy recovering from the previous night’s festivities, dozens of brave Boweners took to the sea at Bowen Bay Beach for the annual Polar Bear Plunge on New Year’s Day.

Beginning at 2 pm participants dove into the water to mark a refreshing start to 2023. A quick exit to warm clothes and a warm (or cold) drink followed.

Congratulations to everybody who took part in completing an impressive challenge on Day One of the new year!
