At Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary, you can cuddle a koala, hold a snake and hand feed their very friendly kangaroos and wallabies whilst you experience more than 350 fascinating native animals, across 70 Species. They successfully breed many endangered native animals including koalas, cassowaries, parrots and marsupials and have more than 350 animals, including dingoes, emus, wombats, possums, sugar gliders, koalas, cassowaries, bettongs, potoroos, fox, turtles and a large variety of native birds. The sanctuary can be found less than ten minutes from the Capricorn Resort, 28 minutes from Rockhampton and 15 minutes from Yeppoon Beach.
Their interactive animal show is at 1.00 p.m. daily. Hold a Koala for only AUD15.00 extra and enjoy their swimming pool, rainforest, bushwalk and barbecue areas. Get really close to their crocodiles and other reptile friends like large pythons, lizards, turtles and skinks. Their many parrots want to have a chat and dance. They receive no government funding and rely solely on admission and donations. Cooberrie Park is the only Wildlife Sanctuary in Central Queensland that takes care of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife; the animals appreciate your support.
