Your Admission keeps our farm staffed and running smoothly.

PUNCH CARDS

The cards are $50 each (includes GST) and have 10 punches plus one free bonus punch.

Each punch square represents one paying customer coming into the farm regardless of age. You can use as many punches up in a single visit as you want to. You can use up the entire card in one shot if you like. The maximum savings can be achieved by only using the card for those in your party that would otherwise pay a $10 admission fee. They don’t expire. You can USE your card any time we are open, you just can’t BUY one in July or August. So think ahead if you plan on visiting during that time period and get it in advance. The cards are not restricted to a specific person. You can lend your card to a friend or buy it as a gift for someone else. Don’t lose it. If your dog eats it, or you wash it along with your shorts, we won’t replace it. The cards are not redeemable for cash, and/or other services and products.

The cards can be purchased at the farm (cash only) any time we are open except July and August, and from Olive Us in Lake Country or Vernon for cash, debit, or credit any time the store is open except in July and August. Olive Us does not profit from the sale of our cards. Olive Us is not liable and is made blameless from any negative outcome that proceeds from the sale of our punch cards.

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.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR FARM

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.

Holding of the Joeys

This is a very special, free activity that we try to provide to our guests to the best of our ability.

In high season we get a lot of visitors. There are very limited numbers of joeys. We try our best to accommodate as many people as possible. We regret the long wait time and the short holding time but there is essentially nothing we can do about it other than offering the following advice:

The perfect visit in regard to short waits and extended snuggling happens during the shoulder seasons. If you can avoid the weekends and the holidays that’s even more optimal. Visitors that come during these periods can often sit and hold multiple joeys for as long as they please.

Thanks, and see you at the farm!

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). You won’t be asked to pay extra for the educational (and fun) shows that are put on by the Okanagan Reptile Refuge on Saturday and Sunday evenings (July and August only) or to get closer to a raptor from the Alan Brooks Nature Center when they make a guest appearance.  We also don’t charge extra for holding a joey, a sugar glider, or the parrots. However, the last 3 activities I mentioned are not a guaranteed activity. They are an extra something that we try and provide to the best of our ability but there are only so many joeys, so many sugar gliders, and so many parrots. Sometimes the farm is very busy and we simply cannot accommodate everyone. If you choose to participate in these extras 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. The best time of day to visit is either first thing when we open or in the evening (July and August only).

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. Visit 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.
