The park contains over 200 native plant species including 34 species of delicately flowered orchids.
Eucalypt trees dominate the vegetation, with Red Stringybark and Long-leaf Box predominant in the hilly areas and Yellow Gum and Yellow Box occupying the flats.
On the park's main ridge at One Tree Hill, a stand of very old, large Messmate Stringybark trees are of botanical interest.
In spring time, flowers of the Golden Wattle swathe the hills in gold.
Grey Kangaroos, Swamp Wallabies and echidnas are commonly seen.
Brush-tailed Possums and Sugar Gliders are active at night.
Birdlife includes rowdy flocks of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos, beautiful Rainbow Birds, Long-billed Corellas and Galahs, the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle and the ground feeding Common Bronzewing and Red-rumped Parrot.
