TERRI Irwin has been quietly listing for sale properties that formed part of the $20 million portfolio she built with late husband Steve.
The owner of Australia Zoo has sold at least one property “at a loss”, and is reportedly offering more investments including four abutting the massive tourist attraction, and which were purchased as part of expansion plans. Properties have been listed for sale since late last year.
A zoo spokeswoman said it had been affected by the recent downturn in tourism. “In response to this, we have conducted an extensive and thorough review of the business and our operations, exploring all other avenues of cost savings right across the business.”
The largest property being offered, at Peachester, spreads over 95 hectares and has views of the Glass Mountains. It’s asking $1.25 million.
