From 1997 until its closure in 2004, Sunway Group owned and operated Wonderland Sydney, a theme park in New South Wales, Australia. Dwindling popularity and public liability insurance costs were blamed for the closure. A small number of rides were moved to Sunway Lagoon, while most ended up being demolished or sold. The park's land was eventually sold and is now a business park.
