Vegetation

The park has extensive areas of forest and woodland vegetation. Common eucalypts include Silvertop, Yertchuk, Messmate, Stringybark and Broadleaf Peppermint.

The woodland is of an unusual vegetation type, considered to be of a state significance. Features include banksia and hakea shrubs over a ground layer of spear grass, sedges and lilies. The area is noted for its wildflower displays, particularly along Seninis Track where 16 species of native orchids have been recorded.

Animals

Koalas have been released in the area and may be seen in the park. Nearly 100 bird species have been recorded and echidnas, bandicoots, possums, gliders and a number of reptiles can also be seen. The variety of habitat also provides home for many butterflies.
