St Lawrence, south of Mackay, is one of the oldest towns on the coast of Queensland. Interesting sites include the recently refurbished meatworks site and the Centenary Pavilion. There is one General Store, a hotel, post office, bowls club, golf course, swimming pool, library/internet access centre and an arts and craft shop. Campers and caravans can enjoy the recreation reserve and its facilities, which is charged at AUD10 per night/per site, paid via Parkmobile. There are great fishing and crabbing spots close by.
From the sleepy coastal towns of Greenhill and Carmila, to the outback townships of Dysart and Middlemount, there’s much to see in the Isaac Region. Take a four wheel drive and travel the countryside along the Bicentennial National Trail, starting from the coastal town of St Lawrence. Visit the historical buildings and sites around St Lawrence, enjoy a spot of fishing or play a game of bowls with the locals on Sunday.
