John Bowman Track

Bowman Track, Torquay

Bowman Track meanders through a variety of rehabilitated ecosystems that once thrived in this valley. They include, coastal tussock grasslands, freshwater and saline wetlands, and the tranquil estuarine waters of Spring Creek, lined with the now threatened Coastal Moonah Woodland and the Bellarine Yellow Gums.

John Bowman was a founding member of the Torquay Landcare Group and dedicated advocate of sustainable land management and conservation. He devoted much of his time devising and testing novel ideas and methods to enhance our local environment. John plied his multitude of skills and enthusiasm to lead and encourage others to fully appreciate and conserve the natural assets of Torquay and the surrounding district.
