St Lawrence

The town was originally built to service the port of St Lawrence. The beauty of local historical buildings such as the Council Office are a living reminder of times gone by.

History buffs should also visit the St Lawrence Library which was once the historical railway station, and the Centenary Pavilion which hosts an impressive collection of past machinery and relics of Central Queensland’s outback heritage.

The St Lawrence Wetlands is a tapestry of deep open water lagoons and swamps. Part of the great Broadsound Wetlands, this scenic environment is relaxing and perfect for spotting fish, turtles and frogs. Follow the interpretive signs to learn more about the wetlands and its inhabitants. Time your visit for the early part of the wet season to capture stunning landscape shots speckled with flocks of hundreds of magpie geese.
