Moorooduc is a rural district in the centre of the Mornington Peninsula, with Mornington to its west and Somerville to its east. It is 50 km south-east of Melbourne.
Much of Moorooduc comprises well-grassed grazing and stud properties, edged with cypress windbreaks. Its relatively cleared condition is a product of human influence, as early accounts mention timber harvesting and Stumpy Gully Road is further evidence of the original tree cover. The soil, however, is good for agriculture.
