“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Kids loved this, place riddled with mossies though.The dinosaurs themselves were good however they could do alot in terms of having them set out alot better and with better forest ect between each dinosaur so they are not all right next to each in a zoo.I guess with better lay out and planning to create some atmosphere it could be heaps better.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Palmersaurus is a joke. It's overpriced, half the buttons don't work, and there are some factual errors on the plaques. Only takes 30 mins to see the whole thing. Don't waste your money!

“Rip off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

The attraction itself is quite well done with life size dinosaurs including movement and noise - very impressive esp for our five year old.

But way over-priced - over $100 for a family of four when it takes you only half an hour to walk around the entire park.

Should be half that price as a maximum.

Clive Palmer at his greedy best - as a side note we were considering staying at the resort but were put off by reviews. And we're happy with our choice - the resort looked tired and desolate. Much better places to stay in the beautiful surrounding Sunshine Coast

“Family friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

We decided to stay over night at the resort it self and the service from all staff right from reception to departure was 10 out of 10. The food was excellent as well as our villa. The grandchildren were made very welcome which is rare for their ages,8 and 11.
The dinosaur park was overpriced but found the resort and facilities great. Especially the buggy pick ups and drop offs as I also had my mum staying with us and could not do a lot of walking.
Well done all the staff and thanx Mark for the tour ride.
Cheers, Judy Jackson

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Went to Palmersaurus as one grandchild loves dinosaurs - the other lukewarm. It is an interesting attraction but grossly overpriced at $99 for family ticket (2 Ad, 3 Ch). There are buttons you push on the side of the fence where the dinos are but they just make a noise. You can walk through in about 30-40 mins. There are many melaleuca trees so make sure you take the mossie spray.
