One small step for a dinosaur - but a giant leap for Clive
CLIVE Palmer's Coolum Resort was the centre of a tall tail today as the first of more than 160 dinosaurs arrived at its new home.
The Tyrannosaurus Rex was shipped from China, measuring a giant 20m in length and standing 8.5m tall with an impressive weight of 1.7 tonne.
Palmer Coolum Resort general manager Bill Schoch said T-Rex was the first of many to come.
"The biggest dinosaur park in the world has 160 animals and we hope to top that," he said.
The contraption will take a the resort's engineering team around a week to assemble.
