Family-owned and operated right in Arlington, this devoted family has raised these exotic animals for more than 20 years. The journey began with owner Randy’s late wife sharing a name with a baby kangaroo (Joey) and has evolved into a passion for raising these loving animals right at home. The business was initially started as a Christmas tree farm with a few kangaroos and wallabies owned as pets for guests to see and enjoy during the holiday season. With growing excitement and demand, the couple decided to open the Outback Kangaroo Farm, offering full guided tours and additional animals for viewing.

What is one of the most rewarding aspects of running the kangaroo farm? Owner and Operator Randy Stromm says it’s seeing the excitement from people that have never seen a kangaroo before. While not native in Washington, these entertaining animals can be seen at Arlington’s local kangaroo farm. Embark on a 40-minute tour, providing both educational and recreational pleasure.
