It’s a Devil of Bend!

Circumnavigating Devil Bend Reservoir yesterday afternoon was took us nearly three hours, consequently we are a little stiff today. The reservoir was commissioned in 1965 to supply drinking water to the Mornington Peninsula, but has since been bypassed. It is now a Natural Features Reserve, complete with water birds, including the handsome Great Crested Heron.

Foolishly, we hadn’t brought a snack, but the wild blackberries provided a juicy flavour hit.

The remains of water management infrastructure kept us interested, and new signage had been erected for access tracks.
