Most of the park consists of steep and deeply dissected forested country, including the gorges of Bungonia and Jerrara Creeks and the Shoalhaven River. A major feature is an area of karst in the northern part of the state recreation area including over 175 caves and other limestone features.

The park has varied and important geological, biological and cultural features and magnificent scenery. It caters for a variety of activities including caving, walking, canyoning, abseiling, rock climbing, canoeing, camping, sightseeing and scientific research. Many of these are undertaken in environmentally sensitive locations or rugged terrain.
