Peel Zoo is a boutique, hands-on zoo, in a lush setting on the banks of the Murray River. Being nestled into a fertile wetland means our surroundings are naturally impressive. Apart from a location worthy of envy, what makes Peel Zoo different from other zoos is our desire to ensure visitors get a â€˜hands on experienceâ€™. That means, at Peel Zoo you can get up close and personal with over 150 different species of animals.
Peel Zoo is a privately funded zoo and wildlife sanctuary. Our goal is to be the best boutique zoo in Australia. We strive to achieve this by making sure everyone who visits us has a unique and personal experience. Visiting Peel Zoo is a bit like visiting one of your own family, who just happens to have hundreds of pets. Breeding animals is a key concern for us. And, in that regard, our Tasmanian Devil breeding programme is of vital importance. This species is endangered in the wild because of an in incurrable facial tumour disease. We hope our efforts contribute to the long term future of the Tassie Devil.
The difference between Peel Zoo and other zoos is the "Hands On Experience" you'll get when you visit us. We offer more than just walking past enclosures. When you come to Peel Zoo, our awesome team of Volunteers will ensure you have a great time, every time. If you want to hold a Stimsons Python; no problem. If you don't want to, but your 4 year old son, who knows no fear does, we can help with that too. Maybe a ferret is more to your liking. Or a koalaâ€¦ We'll do our best to help you create wonderful memories of your visit here.
