Animals

The forest provides an important local habitat, particularly for waterbirds. Over 200 species of birds have been recorded, and it is one of Victoria’s largest waterbird breeding areas. Other abundant animal life throughout the forest include grey kangaroos, emus and koalas.

Vegetation

The park protects 38 rare or threatened plants including fruit Saltbush and Winged Peppergrass. Yellow and Black Box grow on the ridges.

Ulupna Island, bounded by the Murray River and Ulupna Creek, is higher than other parts of the forest and provides an excellent example of less frequently flooded River Red Gum forest. Mixed box woodland is also common on the sandy ridges.
