The island was officially dual named in 2021, followed by the park in 2023, to recognise the significance of the island to Aboriginal people and their continuing connection to Country. Dual naming will help promote this significance and connection to the broader community.

Barunguba Montague Island protects one of the largest little penguin colonies in New South Wales, the largest aggregation of fur seals on the NSW coast and provides habitat for many seabirds.
