The Outback Kangaroo Farm
Your tour host, Ray Strom, and his wife, Joey, enjoy leading about four scheduled tours a day, where they share their knowledge and passion for all the various animals they're proud to host at their farm.
Not only does The Outback Kangaroo Farm offer tours of the premises, but also sales of eggs as well as exotic animals. Don't forget to stop by our gift shop for the perfect souvenir from your visit!
At The Outback Kangaroo Farm, we take the idea of a zoo to a whole new level.We provide kangaroo and exotic animal tours during which you have the opportunity to interact with all our different animals. In addition to kangaroos, our farm houses everything from alpacas and flying squirrels to peacocks and wallaroos.
So this place used to be wonderful but now they over crowd I had about 35 people in my group (at the beginning they split you in half too) and half didn't listen to the guide, spent little time with the animals before having to move on because of the massive increase in people, and the animal care seemed to go down even though there were more people coming. I saw animals with chipped hooves, over grown hooves, birds with broken feathers(which can get infected), their oldest Kangaroo had been in a fight and there was blood dripped down him, scratches, part of his ear was torn, he was obsessively licking himself while flies swarmed him. This isn't acceptable or okay. A person that didn't listen tried to pet the llama because the guides weren't paying attention to the back of the group and the llama is not friendly. I had to warn them they could get hurt as I'm not sure if they could hear the joke the guide made about him being mean. Parts were really dirty with poop where visitors couldn't go. The older guide isn't the nicest either. They need to make major changes to this place and put more care into their animals.

So much fun! They were accommodating and sweet to children, so worth the price and it was nice to see the family that owned the place. Every zoo type situation I've been in seems to constrict the animals but not here they seem very relaxed and well taken care of. Great place!
My children enjoyed petting and feeding kangaroos, wallabies, alpacas, goats and a few others. The animals appeared well cared for, well fed, and healthy. But when I consider the cost, $44 for 2 adults and 2 children, I expect public bathrooms with hot water and soap, not port a potties. Our first tour guide, Michelle, was engaging and informative. Ray, who took over near the kangaroo enclosures, may be hard of hearing and had trouble answering simple questions. If we go back I plan to visit at 2 or 4, because those tour groups are smaller than the 12 o'clock tour.
This is basically a petting zoo with a tour guide. It's family owned and the kind of place where every animal has a name, they are all really used to kids being right in their faces, and you can really get close to them. The family guides are really nice people. Price is reasonable for the experience.
