Melbourne: The world's biggest dinosaur park, dubbed Palmersauria, will roar to life sooner than expected on the Sunshine Coast in South East Queensland, Australia.

The dream of eccentric mining billionaire Clive Palmer, the attraction is coming together in the grounds of the Palmer Coolum Resort. It features more than 150 replica animatronic prehistoric creatures, imported from China, a website reported.

Resort general manager Bill Schoch said that while an official name had not been settled on, there was little doubt "Palmer" would be in the title, building on a brand that already included Palmer Resort, Palmer Golf, Palmer Grill and Palmer Motorama vintage car museum.

All of the creatures can make sounds and some will move, such as "Jeff" the resort's towering T. rex. Airborne dinosaurs will swoop down on a flying fox, while a canopy walk will provide a unique perspective.

"There is some paperwork to finalize with council, but we will now be able to get it up and going much quicker than previously thought. I would say within six months to be safe, but it should be sooner," Schoch said.
