Kangaroo Creek Farm, Lake Country

4.6
#1 of 115 in Outdoors in Okanagan Valley
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.

    I loved this place! I can't say it enough. What I enjoyed was you could actually interact with the animals. You could hold a baby wallaby and wallaroo and feel them. And also feed emus, goats and capy...  more »

    We checked out the Kangaroo farm before we headed home, it was a fun place. The cost is $20 for two people with free parking. I recommend staying for at least two hours. You can hold a baby Kangaroo, ...  more »

    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 but lacking.

    Nice place where you can see and hold (baby) kangaroos and some other animals. We were there on a pretty quiet day during the week. Admission fee was 10 dollars per adult. We didn't have to wait long for holding kangaroos or parrots and had some with them. Also the areas with animals were not that busy. I think however that during a busy weekend day, this could differ and create a less fun activity. The price is a bit high, as you're​ not going to spend a very long time, maybe only if your children are full of energy. Also I think they make a profit with these admission fees. Also they should change the bathroom facilities to normal flush bathrooms. Certainly a must visit if you want to see/hold the kangaroos, but do this on a quiet day and don't forget the limited opening hours!

    This farm was a wonderful place to encounter animals not commonly seen in North American zoos. The close encounters with the animals and engagement by the staff was a wonderful experience any animal lover would enjoy. They space their schedule out to give the animals rest between visiting periods and the enclosures look comfortable for the animals.

    For the first time ever I didn't feel guilty of visiting animals . They were absolutely free to go anywhere , sit on benches , hens taking over ducks areas to sit . It was so different to visit than going to a zoo. This place had a different vibe! Animals behaved just like animals unlike in zoo where they are often sitting in one corner

    Admission is cash only. Family petting zoos often come with negative associations but I'm happy to say this isn't the case here. Big, beautiful enclosures. Friendly staff. Happy animals that seem well treated. Well worth the cost of entry.
