Queensland Bowler magazine Since first hitting the newsstands in 1977, the Queensland Bowler has built up a reputation as one of the nation’s most respected sports magazines.

We include feature stories, player and club profiles, reader submissions, not to mention regular columns which cover diverse subjects such as green keeping, coaching, development, law and umpiring.

A must read for over 40,000 bowling fans across Queensland and northern New South Wales, ‘the Bowler’ is in its 35th year of uninterrupted publication.

In September 2008 the Queensland Bowler launched its online edition, becoming the world’s first digital bowls magazine.

It is not only one of Australia’s longest running bowls magazines, but also Queensland’s only statewide bowls publication.

As a not-for-profit publication, all profits from advertising in the Queensland Bowler are pumped back into the sport of lawn bowls.

Printed on high-grade glossy stock, ‘the Bowler’ reports all the latest bowls news and views from Queensland and beyond.
