When we made plans to travel back to the Okanagan this summer we knew that Kangaroo Creek Farm was one place that we had to go back to.
Kangaroos, Capybaras, Wallabies + more at Kangaroo Creek Farm
Since the last time that we visited Kangaroo Creek Farm 2 years ago they have expanded into another field, changed where the animals live, and overall made it an even better experience than the last time that we were there (and the last time was amazing too)!
The first area that you come to is now the area where the Capybaras, birds, and goats spend their days. You’ll find staff walking around available to answer your questions, tell you about the animals, to give out food for you to feed them, and it’s also where you can hold one of their birds.
The large field (which is the new addition) is where you will find all of the Kangaroos, Wallaroos, Bennet Wallabies, Albino Wallabies and also the Emus (which are in a fenced area). There is also staff walking around with treats for you to feed all of the Roos and Wallabies while you interact with them.
The last area that we visited is the smallest of the 3 areas and its where you can line up to hold one of the baby kangaroos. The line up can be long and it’s not uncommon to be in line for at least 30 minutes during peak season. You can also hold a Sugar Glider, check out the exotic birds, and more goats.
Hours & Admission
Kangaroo Creek Farm is open 7 days a week in the morning from 9:00am-2:00 pm and then again in the evening from 6:00pm-8:00 pm. During the weekday evenings, you can also take in the free educational reptile show from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
In September and October, Kangaroo Creek Farm will operate on reduced hours and be open 10:00 am-2:00 pm before they close for the season.
*Tip – Go first thing when they open or in the evening to avoid the hot Okanagan sun!
Admission to get into Kangaroo Creek Farm is $10/adults, $5/youth (under 19), $5/Seniors (65+), and kids 5 and under are free. The farm is cash only, so make sure you stop off at a machine before hand because there is no ATM on site.
