Walk into the past with Jurassic creatures

Queensland's Capricorn Coast is now home to a new tourim attraction where visitors can walk into the past with lifelike Jurassic creatures.

There are 30 life-sized prehistoric giants who have made their home at the Capricorn Dinosaur Park Yeppoon, which has just opened its doors to the public.

The 5-acre development is located adjacent to Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary in Woodbury on the coast of Central Queensland.

There is kilometre long walking trail and dinosaur fossil dig after a $800,000 investment from the Queensland Government's Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund. 

“We are so proud to now combine our three unique experiences in one spot including Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary, Capricorn Dinosaur Mini Golf and Capricorn Dinosaur Park,” said operator Kieron Smedley.

“In 2023, we are celebrating the 50th birthday of Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary, so we believe to double the attraction size on the property this year is a massive achievement for both our family and the entire Capricorn Coast community.”

The Capricorn Dinosaur Park is the first private major tourism attraction built in Central Queensland for more than 30 years and will be open daily from 10am-3pm.

Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll said the new experience "will further complement our strong and growing destination".

“Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary has been a drawcard for our destination for 50 years now, and we are absolutely thrilled to see the Capricorn Dinosaur Park take its final step forward and open to the public,” she said.
