There are over 200 different bird species and 450 flowering plant types that can be found in the park, as well as many native Australian animals.

Outlet Creek connects a series of lake beds as one of the main attractions of the park and which can be seen along several of the walking trails. The creek is an extension of the Wimmera River and occasionally when the river is running high the creek and lake beds fill with water.

Camping grounds exist at Casuarina, Snow Drift, Wonga and Round Swamp.  Camp sites are unpowered. See the Parks Victoria website for details.
