Duck hunting 2015
Duck hunting is only permitted in some areas of this storage during the 2015 duck hunting season. Hunting is prohibited around public recreational areas and around storage assets.
The 2015 duck hunting season opens on Saturday 21 March and closes Monday 8 June. We encourage all hunters and visitors to act safely during this time.
Our water storages are used by many people for a range of activities. It is important that all visitors, including hunters, consider other members of the public and the environment, by acting in a safe and responsible manner with awareness of duck hunting prohibited areas.
Information on duck hunting regulations is available from the Game Management Authority by phoning 136 186 or on the Game Management Authority web site.
Urgent issues relating to the misuse of firearms should be referred to Victoria Police by dialling 000.
Tullaroop Reservoir dams the Tullaroop Creek, a tributary of the Loddon River. The storage embankment is situated about 7 km south-east of Carisbrook.
Tullaroop Reservoir was built between 1958 and 1959. The construction involved substantial excavation, including the removal of 300,000 cubic yards of material from the bed of Tullaroop Creek.
Tullaroop Reservoir stores water for supplies to irrigated properties along Tullaroop Creek and the Loddon River.
Supplementation of the western sector of the Goulburn water supply system using Loddon River resources such as that held in Tullaroop Reservoir occurs when water resources are abundant.
The reservoir also provides water for Maryborough.
