In 2015, Queensland Water and Land Carers, the Australian Coastal Society and Queensland's Regional Groups Collective (representing Queensland's regional natural resource management bodies) will combine to bring you the very best stories from a community of many hands. From the red dust, over the ranges, and down to the reef, people from all walks of life will journey to Caloundra for a 3-day conference from Monday 31st August to 2nd September 2015 to share their extraordinary stories.

The focus of this journey is about how we are all connected in caring for our lands and waters and how this connectivity impacts on each and every one of us. If you have already attended a Queensland Landcare Conference, a Queensland Coastal Conference or an NRM Forum you already know the value of networking and learning from your peers. If you want to broaden your knowledge and networks, value professional development or are seeking the opportunity to showcase your products and services to 400+ delegates who have a passion for our landscapes, waterways, coasts and reefs we look forward to seeing and hearing you at this very special conference.
