The reserve gets its name from Cap Bernouilli, which is the former name assigned to Cape Jaffa’s headland. It was declared a reserve on November 11 1993 under the Crown Land Management Act to protect the flora and fauna living in the area; particularly its birds.

There are a total of 42 bird species to date that have been recorded living in the area; common species include the hooded plover, musk duck, superb fairywren, and singing honeyeater. Less common species include the red-capped plover, orange-bellied parrot, spiny-cheeked honeyeater, white-browed babbler, and the striated fieldwren.

The Bernouilli Conservation Reserve is a coastal dune area mostly made up of tall shrub land, coast wattle, coast beard-heath, and coast daisy-bush. It is an IUCN Category VI protected area.
