Dog at the Farm?

Do NOT leave your dog in the car. It will be reported to the RCMP, Dog Control and the SPCA.

  • Dogs, of any size or breed, are NOT allowed in the animal enclosures. It’s not safe for the dog, or our animals.
  • Service dogs and Emotional Support animals are NOT allowed in the animal enclosures. It’s not safe. It’s an animal welfare issue.
  • Dogs which are well-behaved, and on a leash, and accompanied by a person at all times, ARE allowed but ONLY in the picnic area.
  • Dogs must be kept away from the fencing around the animal enclosures.
  • Please consider leaving your dog at home, or make arrangements for it to go to a kennel for a play-date.
  • Bark n’ Fly Kennel is our immediate neighbor. They have drop-in rates, but you will need to contact them directly to check if they have any availability.
  • Contact them through their website or email at general@barknflyonline.com or call 250 765 8105.

The farm CLOSES at 3 p.m. and everyone is asked to leave at 3 p.m.

Last booking is at 2:00pm, but you can still walk in at 2:45pm.

The animal enclosures are cleared of visitors and locked at 3 p.m. There is no admittance outside of business hours. The farm closes at 3 p.m. and everyone is asked to leave at that time. Please view our full hours below.

For maximum enjoyment of your visit we recommend that you come as close to opening time at 10 a.m. as you can. It's cooler, less crowded, and the animals are still eager for their treats.

Traffic Advisory:

Please don't attempt to turn left onto Hwy. 97 at the uncontrolled intersection at the North end of Old Vernon Road. While legal, it's not safe. There have been numerous serious and sometimes fatal incidents there. To return to Kelowna, please turn right when exiting the farm and follow Old Vernon Road back to the set of lights at Reid's corner. Alternatively, follow Airport Way down to a set of lights.

WELCOME TO OUR FARM

We have been keeping kangaroos and wallabies for more than 20 years. We do not promote them as house-pets but rather as alternative hobby farm pets to very specific types of situations. We currently have Red Kangaroos (the largest type of kangaroo), Common Wallaroos and Bennett Wallabies (which are mid sized), and Dama Wallabies (one of the smallest wallaby species). Also on site we have emu, peacocks, fancy chickens, goats, parrots, a baby albino wallaby, baby kangaroos and potbellied pigs. We also have capybara, the world’s largest rodent, which can weigh more than 150 lbs!

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.

ABOUT KANGAROO CREEK FARM

Kangaroo Creek Farm prides itself on being as non-commercial as possible. We like to keep things real and un-Disneyfied. You won’t be asked to pay extra for treats to feed the animals (our guides hand them out). We don’t charge extra for petting a joey, or holding a sugar glider, or the parrots.

Sometimes the farm is very busy and we simply cannot accommodate everyone. If you choose to participate in these activities that we try and provide then it is possible that you might have to line up, wait, and be patient. A good way to avoid having to wait or put up with large crowds is to come in the off season, avoid the weekends and the holidays, and peak times of day.

Learn more about what you can expect to see at the farm here.

A QUIETER EXPERIENCE:

If you would like a more relaxed and peaceful experience at the farm, then we recommend that you avoid visiting during the holidays and the weekends if possible. The best time of day to visit is first thing in the morning when we open. The animals are at their most lively and still eager for their treats.

Please remember that commercial groups must book by email at info@kangaroocreekfarm.com  We cannot make commercial bookings by phone. Please go to our Group Visits page for more information.

Our animals insist on their afternoon nap, the staff go home at 3:00pm, and our insurance agent says he won’t continue to renew our liability insurance if we don’t stick to schedule. Sorry, I know our hours are inconvenient to some people but we have to make the welfare of the animals paramount. By 3:00pm they’ve simply had enough.

Commercial groups and clubs such as schools, Home-School groups, Boys and Girls Clubs, YWYMCA, Daycares and Institutions must email to book a day to visit. Please check out our Group Visits page for more information. This is important!

We are going to continue with our tradition of hosting Lake Country retirement homes, schools, daycares and charities for free as our contribution to the community that supported us so enthusiastically for so many years.  We are happy to extend the same invitation to our new community of Ellison.  This offer is only open to Lake Country and Ellison specifically.  Sorry, but we have to draw the line somewhere 🙂  Our neighbor’s to the West, UBC, are also invited to attend the farm for free for educational purposes (classroom groups, attended by an instructor, week days only).  

We have traditionally hosted a variety of organizations and charities that serve the disadvantaged and challenged from all over BC.  Those latter groups will need to contact us in advance to be added to our list of approved gratis groups, and to book their visit.

Please read the The Farm page and The Rules page before you come out for important additional information.
