Police have completed their work at the Dreamworld site on the Gold Coast.

Queensland police have wrapped up their analysis of the Dreamworld disaster scene and have handed control of the Gold Coast theme park back to operators.

"Police have today completed their analysis of the scene at Dreamworld following the deaths of four people on a ride at the Coomera theme park last month," authorities said on Monday afternoon.

"The site has now been handed back to Dreamworld."

Queensland Police said it would not provide any more details on the fatal catastrophe give the matter would be looked at by the coroner.

The news comes on the same day as a funeral service in Canberra for 2 of the victims of the catastrophe, siblings Kate Goodchild and Luke Dorsett.

Goodchild and Dorsett were remembered at Canberra's St Christopher's Catholic Church as kind and selfless people, with the service reportedly focused on honouring their lives, not the horrific manner in which they died.

The pair, along with Roozbeh Araghi and Cindy Low, were killed when their raft flipped on the Thunder River Rapids ride at Dreamworld in October.

In the wake of the deadly incident, police launched a major investigation into how the park-goers lost their lives on the popular ride at the Coomera theme park.

There have been allegations of shoddy upkeep at Dreamworld and criticisms of owner Ardent Leisure's management of the disaster.

Ardent Leisure recently named retired police inspector Mike McKay as Ardent Leisure's adviser on the community recovery process at the park.
