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.
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.  In peak season we have set educational tours through the pens that you can join or not as you wish.
Also on site we have emu, peacocks, fancy chickens, goats, parrots, a baby albino wallaby, baby kangaroos and potbellied pigs.  This spring we added a pair of 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 we rely on donations and honourable intent to pay the bills around here.  We 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 stewardship.  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 $5 then come as close as you can.  Everyone needs a little joy in their life and the people that cannot afford to donate much probably need it more than anyone else.  Having said all that though, we do insist that commercial groups and clubs such as schools, Home-School groups, Boys and Girls Clubs, YWYMCA, daycares and institutions that have budgets for out-trips pay $5 per person, even if their clients are under 5 years old.  The only exceptions will be children that are too young to walk.  Young children that arrive in large groups are particularly challenging to our staff.  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 "visit the farm" page and "the rules" page before you come out for important additional information.
