Fifty-two mammal species, 26 reptile species and 306 species of birds have been recorded. The birds represent about half of Victoria's and a third of Australia's total bird species.

The abundance of possums, gliders and bats is attributed to the presence of hollow-bearing trees.

Wetlands attract 40 species of migratory seabirds and waders while coastal heathlands and woodlands attract hawks, eagles and falcons.

Six owl species live in the forests.

Threatened species found in the park include the Ground Parrot, Eastern Bristlebird, Smoky Mouse, Grey-headed Flying Fox and Australian Fur Seal.
