Together the park and reserve protect an important area of coastal plant and animal communities including old growth forest, extensive heathland, estuarine and freshwater wetlands, dune ecosystems, a large number of threatened native animals species and biogeographically significant plant species.

A number of cultural features are found in the park, most notably Boyds Tower, Green Cape lightstation and the ruins at Bittangabee Bay associated with whaling and lighthouse activities, as well as a number of Aboriginal sites. An Aboriginal culture camp has been established at Haycock Point to help facilitate Aboriginal cultural activities in the local area.
