Goldmining sites and relics associated with the 1850s and 1860s are common in the area. Many separate goldfields were situated in the Park including mines at Misery Creek, Staffordshire Reef and Berringa.

Surface Point was the site of a Chinese settlement in the 1860s, complete with temples, tearooms, gaming tents, herbalists and market gardens. Some remains of this community can still be found in the area.

The forest has been cut for timber, fence posts and local housing materials and has also been used for the production of eucalyptus oil. A historical marker at Enfield township indicates the site of a eucalyptus distillery from days gone by.
