One of the first ‘attractions’ that appealed to us about the destination of Kelowna, British Columbia was the Kangaroo Creek Farm and it far exceeded our expectations. We loved how you could get up close and personal with not only the Kangaroos, but so many other animals as well.
The farm features many animals, including: Kangaroo, Bennet Wallaby, Wallaroo, Albina Wallaby, Sugar Gliders, Pit Bellied Pig, Emu, Parrot, Peacock, Goats, Fancy Chicken and Capybara.
It was nice to see how respectful the staff was of the animals and how much they really did care about them. You could see the passion in the eyes of one of the employees that was handing out feed as she told us everything imaginable about all the animals that crossed our path as we were talking to her. The animals seemed to enjoy the company of the visitors.
The staff were excellent and very friendly, with the exception of the girl who was assisting the visitors with holding the Kangaroos. We requested a younger Joey for our two year-old to hold with us and we were given quite the attitude. Aside from that, the staff was wonderful.
The Joey station where we were able to get some cuddles was our favourite part of the experience and one you will never forget. It is fabulous to be able to roam so freely with all the animals.
