This park has a great range of vegetation - dry forests with their cypress pines and white box in the rainshadow area through the northern section of the park contrast with the tall wet forests to the east. In the higher and more remote sections of the park are forests of Alpine ash covered in snow in most winters, and pockets of cool temperate rainforest In the south of the park. Plants vary from sweet pittosporum and kanooka to typical Mallee shrubs such as desert phevalium and slender westringia.
The rare Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby lives in the rugged mountain ranges. Superb Lyrebirds can often be seen along the track to Raymond Falls and at the plunge pool at the base the small but brilliantly coloured azure kingfishers are almost always found. Platypus have even been seen in the pool.
