The Devils Kitchen is an impressive geological reserve in Piggoreet, half an hour from Ballarat, Victoria. The Woady Yaloak River winds its way through a thickly vegetated valley, surrounded by cliffs of spectacular basalt columns. A couple of Peregrine Falcon nests can be spotted in the cliff face across from the parking area.      

A gravel track travels down into the reserve and crosses the Woady Yaloak River. Be very careful of pot holes, trip hazards, uneven ground and mine shafts if walking off the track. Although this reserve is thickly overgrown, you can still see mullock heaps, foundations, mine adits and more. 

Also of interest:


  • Bushwalking is an excellent way to get outdoors and exploring nature.
  • Evidence of the mid-late 1800's gold rush can be found throughout the Victorian goldfields in the form of abandoned mine shafts and tunnels, mullock heaps, buildings and ruins, circular puddling troughs, remains of cyanide vats, and quartz kilns.
