Visiting 'Kangaroo Jack' at the Outback Kangaroo Farm

    We've visited the farm with young kids, teenagers, and older adults--everyone seems to get a kick out of having their picture taken with a real live kangaroo. If you're lucky they may have baby animals as well. On our most recent visit in August, one of the mama kangaroos had a baby in her pouch. There were even a couple of baby miniature donkeys to top it off.
