We can see just why goat yoga, cat cafes, and playtime with farm animals are all the rage right now: They are some of the easiest ways to destress. But have you ever been face-to-face with a kangaroo, let alone pet one? This kangaroo farm in Fall City, Washington lets you!
Located on 10 acres of Snoqualmie's lush valleys, the Fall City Wallaby Ranch lets you get up-close with Australia's beloved marsupials.
Since this is on private property, you can visit the grounds after making a reservation in advance. It'll cost $15 per person for a minimum group of five people.
The best part of this guided tour is that it's interactive. You'll be able to see families of Bennetts, albino wallabies, wallaroos, and red kangaroos while listening to fascinating facts about them. Like, these animals are sometimes used for emotional support too.
It gets better. You'll also be able to feed them! If you're up for an adventure, one of the most popular photo ops here is to feed the 'roos bread through your mouth. We're not making this up.
Since this facility is licensed by the USDA as official breeders of the roos, generations of these wallabies have called these grounds home — some even earning unique names like Victoria Secret, Thor, and Trillion Kisses.
One of their jacks was even featured in a National Geographic documentary called The Kangaroo King. Stop by here to find out more about him.
Although this spot is open year-around, springtime is one of the best seasons at the pastures.
Between February and June, several baby joeys are born. So it's possible to see them pop in and out of their mom’s pouch as they hop about.
Tours last about one-and-a-half hours and you'll get to take home a photo memento with one of the furry residents with you.
If you fall hopelessly in love with one of them, you can apply to adopt a roo too! You can check here for more details.
