A ‘hole’ world of Jurassic fun has opened on the Capricorn Coast
Posted on December 10th, 2021
Following successful funding through State Government’s Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund in 2020, the team from Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary have officially opened the first stage of their $800,000 project – Capricorn Dinosaur Mini Golf Yeppoon.
“Our team is so excited to bring a unique and world-class attraction to the Capricorn Coast, which will attract domestic and international visitors, encouraging them to say longer to experience more of our destination,” Kieron said.
“Capricorn Dinosaur Mini Golf is the first part of a massive tourism venture that will include a one- kilometer wheelchair and stroller friendly dinosaur walk around lush, landscaped gardens, 35 life-sized replicas of dinosaurs, an educational fossil dig, an interactive indoor area and more.”
Representing Minister Stirling Hinchliffe at today’s opening, Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga MP joined Livingstone Shire Council Mayor Andy Ireland in some friendly putt-putt rivalry.
“I’m pleased the Palaszczuk Government has backed Capricorn Dinosaur Mini Golf through the Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund to boost our Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan, now underway.
“The project has already supported eight jobs for tradies during construction with six ongoing jobs created with today’s opening.
“The ultimate prehistoric mini golf experience is unique to the Capricorn Coast and opens in time for family summer holidays.
Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll commended Kieron and Grant Smedley on their leadership and execution of this new tourism product, and extended congratulations on its success so far.
“Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary has been a drawcard for our destination for many years now, and we are thrilled to see this new tourism infrastructure take another mighty step forward, particularly in these unprecedented and unpredictable times.”
“I commend the State Government for making these funds available to our tourism industry through the Growing Tourism Infrastructure Fund.”
Capricorn Dinosaur Park will be the first private major tourism attraction built in Central Queensland for 30 years. The course is suitable for all ages and abilities and no bookings are required.
