More than 720 people revelled like flock stars among the Isaac region’s stunning birdlife in one of the most significant wetlands on the Queensland coast with an energetic garden gnome and celebrity chef on June 7-9,2019.
2019 Gold Logie nominee and popular television personality Costa Georgiadis and Queensland’s food ambassador and professional chef Matt Golinski were the biggest drawcard for the St Lawrence Wetlands Weekend.
The pair delighted the crowd during a three-day nature adventure celebrating St Lawrence’s exquisite food produce and the breath-taking backdrop which is listed in the Directory of Important Wetlands in Australia.
Mayor Anne Baker said it was a credit to the team who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to bring this wonderful event to life.
“I would also like to acknowledge the great support from Isaac Regional Council, Greater Whitsunday Food Network, Reef Catchments, Mackay Tourism and Fitzroy Basin Association,” she said.
Mayor Baker said the biggest thank you must go to the St Lawrence community groups without whom this event could not happen.
“Thank you to the award-winning St Lawrence State School P&C for running the canteen, the St Lawrence Recreation Group for running the bar, the St Lawrence SES group for manning the gate and the St Lawrence community in general for your priceless support,” she said.
