The park is one of the few areas on the southern fringe of the Melbourne metropolitan area still supporting indigenous plant and animal communities in a reasonable natural condition.
Stringybarks are the main trees in the forest which covers more than half of the reserve, but Swamp Gum, Narrow-leaf Peppermint and Manna Gum also occur. In the lower layers of the forest you will find Prickly Tea-tree, Sallow Wattle, Swamp Paperbark and Pithy Sword-sedge.
About 45 per cent of the plant species indigenous to the Mornington Peninsula are present including many rare species for which the reserve offers the last chance of survival. Some of the more interesting are Tufted Blue-lily, Rabbit-ears Orchid, Wedding Bush and Short Purple-flag.
