Devilbend Natural Features Reserve covers an area of 1005 hectares.

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 reserve also includes the largest inland water body on the Mornington Peninsula providing valuable habitat for waterbirds and shorebirds as well as opportunities for recreation.

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.

Opening times

The picnic area will be open from 5am to sunset, however the park is accessible to pedestrians 24hrs via a small car park located in front of the main entrance gate on Graydens Rd.

Recreational Fishing 

Devilbend NFR has been stocked with a combination of Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Estuary Perch making it an ideal inland fresh water fishing body. Fishing is only permitted in designated fishing zones as identified on the attached map and needs to be done in accordance with a recreational fishing licence.

Planning

Parks Victoria assumed management of Devilbend Natural Features Reserve in September 2006 and subsequently prepared the Devilbend Natural Features Reserve Management Plan in May 2010. A Master Plan was prepared in 2011 to provide for the establishment of upgraded and new visitor facilities including walking trails on Daangean Point in accordance with the approved management plan.

Red-eared Slider Turtle

The Red-eared Slider Turtle has been reported in the Devilbend Natural Features Reserve. This species has previously been found in the wild in and around the metropolitan areas of Melbourne. It competes with native turtles for food, basking sites, nesting sites and suitable habitat. The turtle is classified as a controlled pest animal under the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994. 

Reports of the red-eared slider are critical to protect Victoria from the establishment of the species. If you think you have found the Red-eared Slider turtle report it immediately to 136 186 or email highrisk.invasiveanimals@ecodev.vic.gov.au With reports of high risk invasive animals please take a photo and record as much information as possible such as when, where, how the animal was sighted.
