The Peel Zoo is a boutique, hands-on Zoo in a beautiful setting on the banks of the Murray River. Being nestled into a fertile wetland means our surroundings are naturally impressive. But, 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 fantastic experience for children of all ages. We encourage people to feed the kangaroos with hand 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, and it’s 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 you. It’s a pleasure to provide children with opportunities they might otherwise never experience.
About Peel Zoo
Peel Zoo is a privately established zoo and wildlife refuge. We aim to be an excellent boutique zoo in Australia. We strive to gain this by making sure everyone who visits us has a unique and personal experience. Visiting Peel Zoo is a bit like seeing one of your own family, who happens to have hundreds of pets.
Breeding animals is a crucial concern for us. And, in that regard, our Tasmanian Devil raising program is of significant value. The wild ones threaten this species because of a deadly facial disease. We hope our struggles 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 between Peel Zoo and other zoos is the “Hands-On Experience” you’ll get when visiting peel zoo. We give more than just walking past c. When you come to Peel Zoo, our incredible team of Volunteers will guarantee you have a wonderful time every time if you want to hold a Stimsons Python, no problem.
If you don’t want to, but your four-year-old son, who knows no fear, does, we can help with that. Maybe a ferret is more to your admiration. Or a koala. We’ll ensure to help you give you beautiful memories of your visit here.

Peel Zoo For Schools: now that’s “edutainment.”
Peel Zoo takes education exceptionally. However, we also think it should be pleasurable. That’s why we provide for schools what we call “edutainment”.
Our goal with “edutainment” is to support teachers in delivering a variety of educational subjects. These subjects might include Research Skills, Science, Animal Care, Ecosystems, Conservation, English, and even the Arts.
Peel Zoo values Animal Care, Conservation and Education. What’s more, we trust the best way to grow the values in children is to offer them hands-on, practical, and authentic experiences. This approach motivates student learning.
The experienced staff at Peel Zoo offer animal-based activities that range from animal care, safe animal handling, observation, 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.
Peel Zoo is proud to offer you the opportunity of a lifetime. For the first time, it’s now possible to sleepover at the Zoo. Just bring your tent and sleeping bag while every other thing will be provided with the rest. But, price does depend upon numbers.
