New managers for Featherdale after $15m sale

ANTHOLOGY Collection will manage the iconic Featherdale Wildlife Park, at Doonside, following its sale by Amalgamated Holdings to Moss Capital in a deal estimated to be worth $15 million.

 Featherdale first opened in July 1972, as a family owned business that has evolved and grown to be known as one of Australia’s pre-eminent wildlife facilities with over 270 species of birds and animals on display.

The park was purchased by Amalgamated Holdings Limited in 1996 which maintained ownership until the sale to Moss Capital.

Anthology is a specialist manager of nature-based tourism assets including Wildman Wilderness Lodge in the Mary River Wetlands region of the Northern Territory and the iconic Wilpena Pound Resort in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges.

BREED, a work place service provider in the Nirimba Business Centre, which has been working with Featherdale for a decade or more, manages 80 work experience and primary industry work placement students at the venue.

“We often find that students will bring a fresh perspective and new ideas which they share during their week at Featherdale,” said Kellie Ames, a former work experience student herself and now the park’s marketing manager.
