Community Partnership Program

Bowen Rail Company is committed to supporting the communities where our business operates and where our people live.

Community Partnership Program

Our Community Partnership Program assists not-for-profit organisations and community groups with the purchase of small assets that can make a big difference – things like a new microwave for your school or sports canteen, netball bibs, kickboards for swimming training or footy boots for new players.

This annual program is awarded bi-annually in May and November.
