Located near Pinjarra the Peel Zoo is a small privately owned zoo that allows you to interact with some of the animals there.
There's lots of birds, many that come down and sit on your shoulder, arm or head. I saw some really cool looking chooks and ducks and a rooster that would look nice in my chookpen.
We were given a map on entry and this made it easy to find all the animals.
Getting to hold a snake was a highlight for us, the young ferret was pretty cute, petting a kangaroo got points with the grandchild…the alpaca spitting at the daughter, not so much fun for her but it made me laugh.
This zoo has a breeding program for Tasmanian Devils and seeing the many that were there it looks like it is successful.
The zoo itself is well cared for, the staff friendly and helpful and the animals are friendly, too, especially when they see the $3 bag of food bought to feed them with.
The zoo doesn't sell people food so take a picnic or some snags to cook on one of the free barbecues that are there.
I thought it was quite dear at $18 for adults and $9 for kids as young as 3 but I have since seen that they have yearly tickets that can be bought for $65 and $40, only during May and June but if you live in the area I think that would be a great thing to have as it would be a lovely spot for a weekly or monthly picnic.
