In Detail

Peel Zoo
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 ‘hands on experience’. That means, at Peel Zoo you can get up close and personal with over 150 different species of animals.

The Peel Zoo Experience

Peel Zoo provides a truly amazing experience for children of all ages. We encourage people to hand feed the kangaroos, wallabies, emus, deer… Hold a snake, pat a fox, tickle a ferret… Relax in the shade and enjoy our FREE BBQ facilities. Peel Zoo is so tranquil, it's actually therapeutic.

More Than Just A Zoo

Peel Zoo is a fantastic location for children’s parties, school camps, and group excursions. We can even come to you, if that suits. It’s a pleasure to provide children with opportunities they might otherwise never experience.

About Peel Zoo

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 program is of vital importance. This species is endangered in the wild because of an in incurable facial tumor disease. We hope our efforts contribute to the long term future of the Tassie Devil. This year we bred 11 joeys, which makes us the most successful breeders in Australia.

The Difference

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 koala… We'll do our best to help you create wonderful memories of your visit here.

Peel Zoo For Schools: now that's "edu-tainment"
Peel Zoo takes education very seriously. However, we also think it should be fun. That's why we help schools with what we call "edu-tainment".

Our goal with "edu-tainment" is to support teachers in the delivery of a variety of educational subjects. These subjects might include Research Skills, Science, Animal Care, Ecosystems, Conservation, English, and even the Arts.

Peel Zoo values Education, Animal Care, and Conservation. What's more, we believe the best way to nurture these values in children is to offer them hands on, practical, and very real experiences. This approach really motivates student learning.

The experienced staff at Peel Zoo offer animal based activities that range from observation, animal care, safe animal handling, and facts about each animal and the ecosystem in which they live.

If you’re a teacher, call Narelle or David to ask about how Peel Zoo can enrich the lives of your students today.

School Camps
Peel Zoo is proud to offer you the opportunity of a lifetime. For the first time ever, it’s now possible to sleep-over at the Zoo. Just bring your tent and sleeping bag. We’ll provide the rest. Price does depend upon numbers. So, call us now to secure your booking.
