Capricorn Dinosaur Park

Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary is developing a world-class dinosaur themed park that will attract both domestic and international visitors to the region.

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

We’re supporting the development of this new attraction with a $796,000 investment to help deliver a unique experience that will create jobs and 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 by approximately $2.3 million each year

  • Estimated to generate 8 jobs during construction and 6 ongoing jobs once operational
