First, let me start by saying that not only is Kangaroo Creek Farm such great value that they made our Top 10 List, but our guests think they’re pretty spectacular as well! One guest in particular said and I quote, ” My girls loved the kangaroo farm so much, it was very hard to convince them to leave the farm and go home”.
So, we are happy to inform you that Kangaroo Creek Farm’s 2018 season starts this Saturday, March 17th. We also want to fill you in on some exciting changes. They will now be open 7 days a week! Starting this weekend (17th of March) right up until Thanksgiving (8th of October), including weekends & holidays, which is so awesome. Their new hours of operation will be from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
They are discontinuing the early bird special and the evening sessions. However, not to worry, it is still possible to save a bundle by buying a punch card. The cards can be purchased (cash only) anytime the farm is open (except in July & August ~ but you can still use your card during this time) or you can head on over to Olive Us Oil & Vinegar Tasting Room in Lake Country or in Vernon. If you are like us and want tickets in hand before you go or perhaps you are travelling from out of town, you can always purchase the punch cards in advance through Olives Us’s website at oliveusoils.com
The price of admission has not changed. Adults are $10, Youth (under 19) are $5, Seniors (65+) are $5, Children under 5 are free. If you choose to purchase a punch card, each wallet-sized card costs $50 (includes GST) and the card has 10 punch squares plus one bonus square. Each punched square represents admission for one person five years old and up. For more detailed information on punch cards head on over to www.kangaroocreekfarm.com All admission cost keeps the farm staffed and running smoothly.
Just a little info about the farm if you’ve never been before. Kangaroo Creek Farm is located in Lake Country, which is a little way outside Kelowna as you head toward Vernon and they have been keeping kangaroos and wallabies for more than 20 years. At Kangaroo Creek, you can get up close and pet (maybe even cuddle) a baby kangaroo or wallaby. On the farm, you will also see an emu, peacocks, fancy chickens, goats, parrots, an albino wallaby, baby kangaroos and potbellied pigs. They also have capybara, the world’s largest rodent, which can weigh more than 150 lbs.! Visitors can enjoy wandering the farm amongst the kangaroos and other animals. They have very knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions that may come up.
Kangaroo Creek Farm is about a half an hour drive from Suite 370.
