One of Central Queensland’s award-winning tourism events will unfortunately not be going ahead as planned in June this year.

The regrettable decision to cancel the 2020 St Lawrence Wetlands Weekend was made after risk assessments were conducted and uncertainty relating to continued limitations on social gathering could not provide alternative dates.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker was very grateful to the supporters, organising committee, our special guests, industry stakeholders and the community of St Lawrence and surrounding areas for their continued work and efforts.

“It was with a heavy heart to cancel this for 2020 but we are in extraordinary times and these decisions must be made I’m sure we can all appreciate and understand,” Mayor Baker said.

“Behind every event there’s months of planning, scheduling and logistics however with the ongoing restrictions to social gatherings, the cancellation of the event is in everyone’s safety.

“We will be back bigger than ever in 2021 with St Lawrence Wetland Weekend and to ensure that and our daily lives return, I encourage you to listen to the health advice being provided by Queensland Health and the Australian Government’s Department of Health.
