The company plans to develop more parks in Queensland, as well as expand operations in Victoria, possibly with a safari park, chief executive Graham Burke told the Sydney Herald. It is also investigating opening beyond Australia, with sites being lined up in the US and Asia.

"Theme parks for us represent our major strategic thrust into the future," Burke said.

He said the company aims to build on its acquisition of the Sydney Attractions Group, Kelly Tarltons Underwater World in Auckland and its AU$29.15m (US$27m) purchase of the Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park in early March.
