Bowman Scenic Drive is located in Beachport, South Australia and is a 4 hours road trip from Adelaide City via Princess Highway. However, if you are coming from Melbourne it is approximately a 6 hours drive.

The Scenic Drive follows the spectacular rugged coast of the Southern Ocean. It was constructed by the District Council of Beachport (now combined into Wattle Range Council) and named after Councillor Albert Bowman who once served as Councillor for Beachport Ward for 20 years.

Thisn is a beautiful place and one worth the drive. A small suggestion though, the article would have been enhanced by the inclusion of a map via the Advanced Options and perhaps a note about where to stop for a bite while in the area.
