Whats New At Kangaroo Creek Farm
Opening dates:
 

 
In AUGUST we are open EVERY day, including weekends and holidays, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and in the evenings. Open every evening in August, including weekends and holidays, from 6 pm to 8 pm
 
Some people think it's odd that we close in the afternoon, but this is because the kangaroos insist on sleeping during the hot part of the afternoon and we don't like seeing them disturbed when they are trying to rest.  Visitors who come first thing when we open will avoid the heat and get to visit with animals that are still eager for their treats.  They might even get to bottle feed a baby.  There is also another feeding at 6:30 p.m.  If you want to avoid the crowds then I suggest that you come on a weekday rather than a weekend.

Please read through "The Rules" page to help ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable visit.  Thanks.

Recipients of the Tourism Enhancement award 2012

What a great way to finish out our first season, and what a season it has been!  We were so pleased to receive this award and very surprised.  We were up for nomination amongst some very stiff competition such as Grey Monk Estate Wineries and the fabulous Oyama Zip Lines.  Thanks to our nominators at the Kelowna Airport Information Booth.
A big thank you too to all the people that turned up at our farm to support us over the Spring and Summer.  We have been totally blown away with the amount of interest and the appreciation that people have shown for our little farm.
If you come out to visit again next Spring you will see some big changes.  We didn't expect the level of attendance that we experienced over the summer and we will be making some changes to the farm in order to make things run more smoothly.  The biggest change will be to our parking.  Next year we will only have handicapped parking on the property.  Everyone else will have to walk onto the property after parking on Main Street.  However, if it is more convenient, you can drop your passengers off on the property and then return to Main Street to park.  We are hopeful that the Municipality will provide more parking up in the Main Street area by next Spring.  Eliminating the parking lot will allow us to change that field back into a pasture for animals.  It will also reduce the numbers of cars coming and going which will make for a more peaceful, restful atmosphere on the farm.  It will also be safer.  I didn't like what I saw happening with cars and pedestrians in close proximity to each other.  Hopefully everyone will be understanding of this change and won't mind a short walk.  After all, the whole idea is to get outside and get close to nature, right?

Staff Member Gets Major Promotion

My senior roo-wrangler, Pete.  Pete has recently been promoted to the technician responsible for the relocation of by-products of metabolism.  While this promotion did not come with a raise, he will be more than compensated by the esteem commensurate with this position.  Congratulations Pete!

Sarah came out of the pouch just before Christmas 2011 and she's settled in really well.  She's already visited a hospital, a school, several retirement homes and a facility for people with head injuries.

Sarah's family also lives at Kangaroo Creek Farm.  This is her mum and dad.  There's Big Red her dad (born in Texas) and her mum, Sheila (born in Washington State).

This is Savannah, the joey that Big Red and Sheila had last year.  She's Sarah's big sister.  We were amazed at how protective Big Red was of her when we put her out in the pasture.  They stuck together like glue.  This is very strange behavior for a male.  They usually couldn't care less.
