Devilbend Reservoir - Tuerong

The reserve comprises 422 hectares of native vegetation, almost 250 hectares of water surface area associated with Devilbend and Bittern Reservoirs, 328 hectares of non-native vegetation predominantly in the form of cleared grazed land. Access is currently limited to the Daangean Point area.

The landscapes and landforms of the reserve are intrinsic elements of the Country of the Boonwurrung/Bunurong people. The reserve is of considerable aesthetic, historical, scientific and social value to the Boonwurrung/Bunurong people and has been assessed as being of state significance for its unique combination of cultural and environmental values near in a population area.
