The Big Goose: a combination of animals and play areas in Moorooduc

The Big Goose is one of the newest family-friendly attractions on the Mornington Peninsula and is fast becoming a favourite for many reasons.

The Big Goose


While some might call The Big Goose a farm, this outdoor attraction offers plenty more than your average "petting zoo".

There are plenty of animals to meet & greet such as; baby rabbits, chicks, guinea pigs & reptiles in the big red barn.

There's also goats, chickens and geese to feed, a "wildlife park" with kangaroos, wallabies, emus & camels and there's ostriches peacocks, alpacas and donkeys! Not forgetting feathered friends in the aviary.


Animals at The Big Goose


In terms of activities, there's plenty. The jumping pillow is one of the biggest you'll see in the region and a huge attraction for children. In the summer months there's water play activities (don't forget to pack your child's bathers), a tyre maze, huge mostly-undercovered playground and tractor rides.
