  • We took our daughter here for her 2nd birthday. It was quite pricey but we had a good afternoon. We bought food to feed the animals & she loved getting to pat a kangaroo.  more »
  • Its $23 for adults and $12 for kids and the pack of feed is $3. Comparing caversham, wonka, cuddly animal farm, i feel this was the least worth it. Most animals were caged except for the sheep, kangar...  more »
  • We visited the Peel Zoo during a visit to the Mandurah area. There are some lovely birds (with personality). And an opportunity to pet a few animals (smaller kangaroos, alpaca, deer, goat). Many of th...  more »
  • It's a great zoo. Was quiet when we went which is good for a Saturday on a long weekend, don't have to line up for anything or look over anyone's shoulders. It's very hands on, you can pat a lot of the animals and the staff are great. A young man (Josh?) even bought a small and safe snake out for the kids to handle. You can get really close to the animals and they all looked pretty happy except for the older sheep who I think were content to just lay down in the shade. There are a lot of birds, including friendly ones you can handle and will follow you if you give them a scratch. Overall very impressed, whilst it's a long drive compared to Perth Zoo I think it was a better day then what Perth Zoo could offer. Be sure to pack your own lunch as there isn't much food here or in the area.
  • This place is great for family and friends, however, this is more a bird sanctuary and Australian fauna park than a zoo. We brought a picnic lunch and left it at the picnic tables by the entrance while we looked around. Lots of lovely shady trees, hands on experiences feeding and petting animals, including a snake if you're keen! Plenty of beautiful birds including peacocks who roam the place. Bear in mind that some of the Australian animals are very timid and/or nocturnal, so you will need to be patient and look closely to spot them. Terrific staff and a good place to wile away some time on the holidays.
  • We came to Peel Zoo about 5 years ago while in WA visiting family, it was lovely then...well maintained, snakes were kept in public view, now they're kept away in a building only staff can access. The animals we saw on this visit were mostly asleep in their drab looking enclosures, and the ones who were accessible looked disinterested and morbid. We were encouraged to buy a bag of feed but none the animals were interested in eating. The price to get in is way too high, you pay close to that for a big zoo with exotic and a huge array of captive wild animals. Very dissapointing to see how run down Peel Zoo has's a petting farm really and should be advertised as such, with an entry fee to match
  • Peel Zoo is a fantastic look at some Australian wildlife that you would probably have seen before, as well as dotted with a few surprise guests like deer! Not only do you get to see these creatures up close, but you also get to feed them if they feel like it. I haven't quite experienced anything like feeding a huge deer before. A wonderful numbering system allows you to recognise what you are looking at and gives you a bit of a sense of direction when you walk around the enclosures. All round a great experience if you are looking for something to do for a few hours, at a really nice price.
  • We recently visited the Peel Zoo with 2 young friends from Bali From the time we arrived until we left the staff were very friendly and helpful. Putu got to fulfill her wish of seeing,patting and feeding a kangaroo that was all she could talk about. There had been a few negative reviews written Don't understand why We had a wonderful day
