Capricorn Dinosaur Park

The development of the Capricorn Dinosaur Park at Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary features 35 life-sized dinosaurs, a 1 kilometre wheelchair and stroller-friendly dinosaur walk, an educational dinosaur fossil dig, 18-hole mini golf, and a picnic and playground area.

We supported the development of this attraction with a $796,000 investment to deliver a unique experience that will create jobs and help to attract more visitors to experience the amazing attractions the region has to offer.

This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21, and is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.

Benefits

  • Increase visitors to the region by 20,000 each year

  • Grow local economy by approximately $2.3 million each year

  • Generated 8 jobs during construction and 6 ongoing jobs
