We have been breeding 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 wallaroos (a type of kangaroo, not a cross between a wallaby
and a kangaroo) and Bennett wallabies.
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. In peak season we have set educational tours
through the pens that you can join or not as you wish.
on site we have emu, peacocks, fancy chickens, goats, parrots, a baby albino wallaby, baby kangaroos and potbellied pigs. In the Spring of 2013 we will be adding some capybara, the world's larges rodent (up to 150 lbs!).
Kangaroo Creek Farm prides itself on being
completely non-commercial. You'll notice the difference. There isn't anything for sale. Period. Nothing
for the kids to nag you into buying for them, no "exit through the gift shop" because there isn't one, no chips,
no pop, no ice cream, no blasting music and no bouncy castle. Even the bottled ice water that's set out in the
summer for our visitors is complementary. It may shock you to know that there's no entrance fee. But we do depend
on your donations to cover our operating costs, which are substantial. Some people are under the assumption that donations
are to help feed and care for the animals. They are not. Those are basic costs associated with animal stuardship.
In fact, your donations are to cover the thousands of dollars it costs in liability insurance, the changes we have had to
make to the property to make it visitor friendly, employee wages and lost wages (my husband and I quit our jobs so that we
could open our farm to the public). That's what your donations are for. If you genuinely cannot afford to donate,
then don't put anything in the donation box. Everyone needs a little joy in their life and the people that cannot
afford to donate anything probably need it more than anyone else. Please read the "visit the farm" page
before you come out for important additional information.
