Animals at The Big Goose Moorooduc

There are so many different animals at The Big Goose to interact with.  You can feed most of the animals at the farm (apart from dingos and reptiles of course) just make sure you buy food when you enter. The wildlife park is home to kangaroos, wallabies, pademelons and a beautiful deer. These are probably the stars of the show. The kangaroos and wallabies are incredibly friendly and will approach you if you have food, one even jumped into my sister’s lap. The deer is beautiful. You can feed the deer but it is a little shy.
