The sanctuary can be found less than ten minutes from the Capricorn Resort, 28 minutes from Rockhampton and 15 minutes from Yeppoon Beach.

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.

Believe it or not Dajarra was once the largest trucking depot in the world. Dajarra is now a quiet, laid back town in the far north of Outback Queensland. The older people of the area who remember Dajarra's heyday say that the area trucked more cattle than Texas in the United States of America.

Julia Creek

Burketown

Karumba

Karumba, Carpentaria Area
Situated on the mouth of the Norman River, Karumba is already well known as a recreational fishing mecca and birdwatchers paradise. Today however, being so accessible, Karumba is fast becoming a must do destination for travellers looking for an experience with a difference.
