The Reed Hydrogeological Landscape (HGL) is characterised by a forested, undulating upland in the west and a series of north-west south-east trending fault blocks, that step down to the northeast. It is located in south-west Launceston. This is an area of moderate rainfall (680 mm). It is more vegetated but is similar in structure, rock type and regolith development to the West Riverside HGL.

Typical lithologies for this HGL are deeply weathered Jurassic dolerite and fractured Jurassic dolerite, with localised areas of sediment along fault steps.
