Get up close and personal with wildlife at Kangaroo Creek Farm. Without many fences, the site allows visitors to walk freely around the enclosure and learn about the different animals, including information about the animals' habitat, diets, and physiology. Your entry fee donation will allow you to touch, pet, and even feed the kangaroos and wallabies, sugar gliders, pot-bellied pigs, emus, parrots, chickens, and capybaras. Try to spot a red kangaroo, the largest type of this marsupial. Keep in mind that this site is open seasonally.

  • It's a great little area to take the kids and get a hands on experience. If your going to hold the baby kangaroos.... do that first because the line ups last up to an hour...and this place is open fro...  more »

  • This Park is home to various animals and play facilities for children. However, 99% of all people are only getting to touch the Kangaroo babies. We also. The Kangaroo babies are wrapped in towels, 5 pieces in number and passed clockwise to the tourists for about 1-2 min. For this, one is 60 min average! This sucks and is way too long! But the experience to keep the animals in the arm, was of course great - only unfortunately much too short! However, it is questionable how the kangaroos feel it and whether one can speak here of animal-friendly action? The rest of the Park is completely uninteresting, rather a bit Tatty and was our only "scratched".

  • Really great place to get right up close to unique animals. My 9 year old daughter loved everything about it. We got to hold baby wallaby and kangaroo joeys which is so amazing. Also we saw babies in their mother's pouches in the pen where you can stand right beside them, pet and feed them. Just remember it's cash only and the signage to find it was a bit lacking,we just followed the crowds once we got close.
  • Lots of animals and great for even small children. My daughter was only 2 when we went and she enjoyed it here immensely. Some of the kangaroos were a little active and nearly bowled her over a couple times and would have escaped unscathed if it hadn't been for one baby goat that didn't care for her. We will visit again when we return to the Okanagan.
  • What a great place and wonderful experience came here with friends when it wasn't to busy and had a great time seeing and petting a wide variety of small and large animals. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this place as a great day trip for both young and old
  • What a wonderful place to visit while in Kelowna! We enjoyed every bits of it and is already talking about going back! You get to hold and feed baby kangaroos, watch them roam free right in front of you, and pat some less common animals. We spent a couple hours here and only left because it was closing. The admission is also super reasonable. $10 adult and kids under 4 free. Thank you for the amazing farm! We will definitely be back!
  • Super fun place to enjoy a few hours visiting with animals. Australian themed, the animals are well tempered and adjusted to human interaction. The staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, offering great stories and anecdotes about the animals in their care. I recommend trying to hit the off-season of tourists as the lines to hold joeys and sugar gliders can be lengthy. CASH ONLY! This is not an inconvenience if you have a look at the website first! 10/10 will come back to visit with the animals and staff again!
