COINVESTOR IN ELANOR WILDLIFE PARK FUND TAKES MAJOR STAKE IN HUNTER VALLEY ZOO

Recognising that nature-based and eco-tourism is 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 at Nulkaba, NSW.

Atlas Advisors Australia is the sole co-investor in ASX-listed Elanor Investors Group’s Elanor Wildlife Park Fund which purchased the property, bringing the total value of the fund to $60 million. Atlas Advisors Australia is also joint shareholder in Elanor Wildlife Park Fund’s two other wildlife park assets - Featherdale Wildlife Park, in Western Sydney and Mogo Zoo in Batemans Bay on the NSW South Coast.

Atlas Advisors Australia Executive Chairman, Guy Hedley said Atlas Advisors Australia Hunter Valley Zoo was a prime tourism and real estate asset that would thrive in the long-term.

Hunter Valley Zoo boasts an amazing 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 property experts Elanor Investors Group to expand its tourism and tourist-property assets.

Hedley notes “wildlife parks and zoos have remained resilient and profitable despite COVID-19 posing the greatest challenges the Australian tourism sector has ever faced.

“Individuals and families are keen for outdoor adventures that connect them with nature and our unique environment while also providing life-long educational experiences.

“We are looking forward to taking on more opportunities in this thriving tourism subsector while also expanding our asset portfolio to include nature retreats, luxury resorts and high-quality hotels.”
