HUNTER Valley Zoo has new part owners after a wealth management firm that works between China and Australia took a joint stake in the Nulkaba attraction.
Atlas Advisors Australia on Monday announced it was the sole co-investor in Elanor Wildlife Park Fund's purchase of the zoo.
The advisory firm is also a joint shareholder in western Sydney's Featherdale Wildlife Park and Mogo Zoo near Batemans Bay.
Executive chairman Guy Hedley said Hunter Valley Zoo was a prime tourism and real estate asset.
