Palaeon­tol­o­gists have called this area one of the rich­est megafau­na sites in Aus­tralia. Thanks to the fas­ci­nat­ing Land­scapes of Change’ inter­pre­tive walk­ing trail, vis­i­tors can walk the path of the diprotodons, who lived here until about 65,000 years ago.

The park con­serves numer­ous threat­ened eco­log­i­cal com­mu­ni­ties includ­ing scent­ed mat-rush tus­sock grass­land and mallee box wood­land, as well as the rohrlack­’s blue­bush. Short-beaked echid­nas, south­ern hairy-nosed wom­bats, birds and rep­tiles are among the park’s wildlife, as well as present day descen­dants of megafau­na, such as west­ern grey and red kangaroos.
