It is amazing how people live. We found a camp site in one of the less touristy areas of Bowen as the main sites were fully booked. Our neighbour has lived in his caravan on this site for 10 years. He told us about local employment – many travellers look for work and in Bowen that means picking tomatoes (or mangos when in season), at $2 per 15kg bucket. A “little Indonesian fella” can do 340 buckets per day, and earn $680, shifting over 5.1 tonnes of tomatoes. That is a lot of pasta sauce.
