The Big Merino

The Big Merino is a 15-metre tall concrete merino ram, located in Goulburn, Nicknamed "Rambo" by locals. 
The Big Merino was officially opened on 20 September 1985. In 1992 the Hume Highway bypassed Goulburn, which resulted in a loss of 40 busloads of tourists to the Big Merino complex per day. On 26 May 2007, the Big Merino was moved to a location closer to the Hume Highway to increase visitor numbers and is now located near the freeway interchange at a service station.

  1. It used to be a hive of activity in the old days. Didn't realise it had moved. You still can't see if from the highway.
