Exploring the Devilband Reservoir Park





A visit to the Devilbend Reservoir Park.

The Devilbend Reservoir Park, and the surrounding public land, is located 55 km SE of Melbourne, in the Mornington Perninsula, having been opened in 1965.

In September 2006, it was announced that the Reservoir was no longer neded, and most of the 1025 hectare site was officially transferred to Parks Victoria.

A Management Plan is being formulated (April 2007), with Community involvement, to convert the site to a National Park, under public ownership.

The park would require a long-term program of habitat restoration to enhance its conservation features.

There are more than 150 native plant species and 80 significant fauna species, including the nationally vulnerable Dwarf Galaxias fish, on the site.

It is home to most of the threatened Blue-billed Duck and the White-bellied Sea-Eagle.

I explored the large picnic ground, adjacent to the Reservoir, on April 7, 2007.
