Welcome to Kangaroo Creek Farm. We look forward to your visit!

WE ARE OPEN

We are open every day, seven days a week, including the weekends and the holidays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine, up to and including the Thanksgiving long weekend.

WE HAVE NOT MOVED

We are still at 3193 Hill Road in Lake Country. We are planning a move, but it won’t be any time soon. Once we have a firm relocation date we will post it on the website, the facebook page, the recording on the answering machine, and in the newspaper. We are only (eventually) moving 5 minutes away so it won’t be a big deal.

Why are we moving? Because we need more grazing and (especially) more PARKING. It’s not just Costco that’s having issues 🙂 Our new facility will be considerably bigger, have much better access, and upgraded services such as debit and credit.  We are going to retain the current theme: A natural farm setting, populated by happy animals and birds, without any Disney-fication or hyper-commercialization. 

COST TO VISIT THE FARM – CASH ONLY

Adults $10, Youth (under 19) $5, Seniors (65+) $5, Children under 5 free.

Our animals insist on their afternoon nap, the staff go home at 3:00pm, and our insurance agent says he won’t continue to renew our liability insurance if we don’t stick to schedule. Sorry, I know our hours are inconvenient to some people but we have to make the welfare of the animals paramount. By 3:00pm they’ve simply had enough.

WELCOME TO OUR FARM

We have been keeping kangaroos and wallabies for more than 20 years on our farm in Lake Country near Kelowna BC. We do not promote them as house-pets but rather as alternative hobby farm pets to very specific types of situations.We currently have Red Kangaroos (the largest type of kangaroo), Common Wallaroos and Bennett Wallabies (which are mid sized), and Dama Wallabies (one of the smallest wallaby species). Also on site we have emu, peacocks, fancy chickens, goats, parrots, a baby albino wallaby, baby kangaroos and potbellied pigs. We also have capybara, the world’s largest rodent, which can weigh more than 150 lbs!

Visitors can enjoy wandering amongst the kangaroos. Our staff are very knowledgeable about kangaroos and wallabies and are on hand to answer any questions you might have about various species, habitat, breeding, diet, housing and general physiology. Your visit can be as educational an experience as you choose to make it.

ABOUT KANGAROO CREEK FARM

Kangaroo Creek Farm prides itself on being as non-commercial as possible. We like to keep things real and un-Disneyfied. You won’t be asked to exit through the gift shop because there isn’t one. There’s a small unobtrusive pop/ice cream stand being run by our teenage son but that’s about it for commercial enterprise once you’ve paid your admission at the gate. You won’t be asked to pay extra for treats to feed the animals (our guides hand them out). We don’t charge extra for petting a joey, or holding a sugar glider, or the parrots. Sometimes the farm is very busy and we simply cannot accommodate everyone. If you choose to participate in these activities that we try and provide then it is possible that you might have to line up, wait, and be patient. A good way to avoid having to wait or put up with large crowds is to come in the off season, avoid the weekends and the holidays, and peak times of day. Learn more about what you can expect to see at the farm here.

 

STAY IN THE LOOP

Commercial groups and clubs such as schools, Home-School groups, Boys and Girls Clubs, YWYMCA, Daycares and Institutions must email to book a day to visit. Please check out our Group Visits page for more information. This is important!

We are happy to invite Lake Country retirement homes, schools and daycares to visit us for free as part of our community service but we have to draw the line somewhere. To all the groups, clubs, schools, daycares and organizations that have contributed, Thank You! Please read the The Farm page and The Rules page before you come out for important additional information.
