Elanor Wildlife Park Fund co-investor takes major stake in Hunter Valley Zoo
Recognizing that ecotourism and ecotourism are a rapidly growing sub-sector of the tourism industry in Australia and around the world, Atlas Advisors Australia – a leading wealth manager – has taken a joint stake in Hunter Valley Zoo in Nulkaba, NSW.
Atlas Advisors Australia is the sole co-investor in ASX-listed Elanor Investors Group Elanor Wildlife Park fund that purchased the property, bringing the total value of the fund to $ 60 million. Atlas Advisors Australia is also a co-shareholder of the two other assets of the Elanor Wildlife Park Fund – Featherdale Wildlife Park, in Western Sydney and Mogo Zoo in Batemans Bay on the south coast of New South Wales.
Atlas Advisors Australia Executive Chairman Guy Hedley said Atlas Advisors Australia’s Hunter Valley Zoo is a major tourism and real estate asset that will thrive in the long term.
The Hunter Valley Zoo is home to an incredible diversity of native and exotic wildlife, including koalas, kangaroos, lions, giraffes, meerkats, monkeys, and reptiles.
Atlas Advisors Australia would continue to leverage its valuable relationship with real estate experts Elanor Investors Group to develop its tourism and tourism real estate assets.
Hedley notes that âanimal parks and zoos have remained resilient and profitable despite COVID-19 posing the greatest challenges the Australian tourism industry has ever faced.
âIndividuals and families are fond of outdoor adventures that connect them to nature and our unique environment while providing lifelong educational experiences.
âWe look forward to seizing more opportunities in this thriving tourism sub-sector while expanding our asset portfolio to include nature retreats, luxury resorts and high quality hotels. “
