Indoor or outdoor action, land or water, the Peel region has it all when it comes to sport and recreation pursuits.

The region’s moderate climate and distinctive physical features (beaches, Harvey Estuary and Darling Scarp) provide an excellent opportunity to enjoy a diverse range of outdoor passive and active recreational activities.

Our well established trails have mountain bike enthusiasts, canoeists and hikers travelling from around the world to explore.  

Sporting facilities cater for family and junior sporting activities, with several venues suitable for major sporting events. With excellent accommodation choices, natural attractions and proximity to the metropolitan region, the Peel is fast becoming a major sporting event mecca.

Our regional sporting associations are dedicated to developing their sport by increasing participation, developing clear pathways for talented athletes and organisational development. The department offers support to our regional associations and local sport and recreation clubs in developing and meeting their strategic objectives.
