Owner description: THE BIG GOOSE combines farm animals with an adventure park, situated in Moorooduc only 800m from Peninsula Link. The park is made up of different adventures, including a tractor ride, exploring the petting barn, having a hit on the mini golf course, getting muddled in the tyre maze, climbing around the adventure playground plus the GIANT jumping pillow and splash park (summer). Don't forget to have a pony ride too! You will love the natural beauty of the farmland and how well the animals are loved and looked after by our staff. Enjoy lunch at our NEW Rotunda Cafe or bring a picnic and enjoy a day of family fun for everyone. Only 40 mins from Melbourne via East Link and Peninsula Link!

This farm is really nice to visit - get there early and you'll likely have a chance to feed the baby animals. The have a large undercover playground for the kids to play on, as well as tractor rides and a sheepdog show. The staff made the experience really enjoyable.

The farm is only an hour's drive from Melbourne CBD, lots of animals to feed, to pat, to look at. Throughout the day the staff are doing shows - cattle dog show, reptiles, some others.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Our first time here with a 5yr old and 2yr old. It was really terrific! Judging by the number of cars we thought it was going to be jam packed but it was surprisingly not... We didn’t wait for the tractor ride (my sons fave), or the pony ride, and we could see the sheep dog show and reptile show with no problems. The staff were friendly, the grounds clean and well maintained and most importantly all the animals seemed content and well cared for. The playground was my daughters fave (not a big animal lover!). We bought lunch on site (1 food van, limited) and we’re actually pleasantly surprised by the prices. Next time we will bring a picnic though, good facilities for this. Compared to taking the kids to the footy it was reasonable. We stayed for 4 hours and did everything. The easter scramble was a highlight. Well done - we will definitely be back and will recommend

We have membership at the big goose and have been regular goers for 18months. Couldn’t believe how busy it was today. There must have been 100 cars in the car park (felt like it anyway). It was at least X10 than I have seen before.

We enjoy going as it’s usually quite so we were a little apprehensive about the numbers. However, I must say the experience was only very slightly dampened by the significant number of extra people.

It’s a great spot and the staff do a good job. You can also see the business continuing to invest back in its-self with upgrades here and there.

It’s good to see a local businesses appearing to prosper but I will be happier when there are a few less people.

Staff said it was the busiest weekend of the year.

We were there for about 3.5hrs

Took grandchildren, what a great day, from handling small animals, tractor ride, story telling, reptile handling, fantastic play equipment, a demonstration with sheep dogs rounding up sheep. lots of places to sit and eat lunch. Children came home thoroughly exhausted and cannot stop talking about all the things they did. Plus lots more. Highly recommended
