Koalas, kangaroos, deer, foxes, beautiful birds, Tasmania devils, long nose potoroos, spotted tailed quolls, farm animals and reptiles are some of the animals that you will find at the Peel Zoo.
The zoo has one of the most successful Tasmania devil breeding programs which has gone a long way in protecting the species. This program is run in partnership with the Australian and Tasmania Government.
