Please remember that commercial groups must book by email at info@kangaroocreekfarm.com  We cannot make commercial bookings by phone. Please go to our Group Visits page for more information.

Our animals insist on their afternoon nap, the staff go home at 2 p.m., 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 2 p.m. they’ve simply had enough.

We re-open at 6 p.m. when they have had a chance to rest and it has cooled off. This is a good time to visit if you want to avoid the crowds and the heat. There is also the added bonus of a free reptile show (with admission) that starts at 6:30. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be anywhere near the snakes and spiders if that doesn’t appeal to you.

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.

If you have no choice but to come in high season then try and come early in the morning when we first open (and save 50% on adult admission) or in the evening. In high season it is possible to get a re-entry pass to come back in the evening if you don’t get a chance to see and do everything you wanted to do during the day. Just ask the person on the gate as you are leaving.

Thanks.

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.
