Koinmerburra Country is on Central Queensland’s picturesque coastline between Mackay and Rockhampton.  

This country is recognised as the ancestral lands of the Koinjmail Peoples. 

The region is characterised by unique geographical features where freshwater converges with saltwater, creating a diverse ecosystem of wetlands, saltwalter plains, mangroves and swamps. 

This distinctive landscape is called the Mixed Water Country. 

St Lawrence Wetlands Weekend serves as a platform for locals and guests to connect with the Country, exchange knowledge, and celebrate the beauty and richness of this land.  

Let us come together to honor and respect the deep spiritual connection that the Koinjmal Peoples have with their traditional lands.
