The new 225 hectare reserve hosts eight kilometres of trails for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders and hundreds of native plants on dunes formed from earth excavated from the plant project.
The reserve also includes a bird hide, viewing decks, boardwalks and picnic shelters.
Visitors took advantage of the sunny skies and cool sea breeze to enjoy all of the activities on offer, exploring the walking trails and listening to talks by flora and fauna experts.
Entertainment was provided by Island Jazz, Wonthaggi Citizens’ Band, and young performers Tom Green and Maria-Rosa Gatto.
Bass MLA Ken Smith officially opened the reserve with AquaSure CEO Matthew Brassington.
