Located between Hastings and Mount Martha, this 1,005 hectare reserve surrounds the decommissioned Devilbend Reservoir and the smaller Bittern Reservoir. It protects a significant area of native vegetation and cleared grazed land, as well as providing a valuable habitat for birds. The main picnic area is located at the northern end of the Devilbend Reservoir which has been stocked with trout and perch. There are designated fishing areas, fishing platforms and walking tracks near this picnic area and also along a section of the Bittern Reservoir.
A collection of historical artefacts and local history books are display, as well as outdoor exhibitions including "Dad's Shed" and a small pioneer cottage which was built in 1900 with old fashioned plants in the back garden
