The river and wetlands provide opportunities for a diversity of water birds. The park is part of a Ramsar site that aims to protect and enhance habitat for migratory birds. Swamp Harrier, Whistling Kite, Musk Duck and Latham’s Snipe birds may be seen, along with more common species such as parrots and lorikeets.

The threatened Growling Grass Frog has been recorded within the park, and the river is home to Black Bream fish, a popular target for anglers.

River Red Gum trees provide shelter and line the river. Large areas of Common Reed occur adjacent to the river, while patches of saltmarsh are present in low lying areas.

The area above the escarpment has formerly been used as grazing land and will be revegetated over time.
